Excellent except for food

Good

The plane boarded late but they would not give anyone an estimate as to when they’d be boarding to allow people to go to the nearby lounge. The in-flight crew was awesome, and the premium economy is well worth it. Wish they allowed purchasing of business class upgrades, only allowed with points. Food on this flight not as good as their usual. Not many new movies to watch. Overall comfortable flight

Flight was delayed. Food is not good. Crew are confused

cramped seating, no entertainment, no meal despite the website ensuring it. The baggage crew dented my hard shell bag.

Everything is superb! But I lost my Red Hearted Shape RING in my Business Class Seat Flight JL067 2/27/22 S11. Hope they can find it and revert back to me soonest. Thank You JAL!

Lots of space to spread out (which was not their doing) and big seats with big screens and plenty of legroom.

I really JAL! Will use again. KAYAK is excellent as well.

The crew at the check-in counter was super-helpful and exceptionally kind.

Pros: "crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Economy seat was very uncomfortable even though it reclined a lot. Was very disappointed I could not sleep on 12 hour flight. Arm rests too low? Shape of backrest was odd. Maybe provide a bigger pillow in addition to neck pillow to have something to rest arms on. Also tou need more movies. Singapore Airlines has many more options. Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"
Pros: "Economy was surprisingly comfortable. Boarding and deplaning were very quick."
Cons: "Not a ton of movies to choose from. Enough, but less than most domestic US flights."
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better"
Pros: "Crew took great care of us"
Cons: "The cabin was so hot it felt like there was no air conditioning. Please turn up the air conditioning (make it colder). Passengers feeling cold can use a blanket to stay warm. Passengers feeling warm have no solution. I was wearing just a T-shirt and was feeling so warm. Thank you"
Pros: "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."
Cons: "Not one thing."
Pros: "Flight was typical."
Cons: "No direction for the connecting flight and no help to understand the connecting flights."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."

Pros: "Great service! Also, the food and beer that came with my flight was awesome."

Cons: "服务态度非常好"
Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."
Pros: "This was my first flight on JAL. Their customer service was especially good for English speakers. The food on the plane was good, but geared toward the Japanese customer. I must say that it was tasty, but unaccustomed to my palate"
Cons: "I think it would be good to put more food that is geared to a more international palate."

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Was not able to board"
Pros: "Crew was great and were timely in boarding and deplaning processes. They were willing to help when asked."
Cons: "As a 6’ tall, broad shoulder individual the seats were narrow and there was not much leg room. Fortunately there was an empty seat directly next to me which afforded me some space."
Pros: "Economy seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable, a mannequin would complain and to add insult to injury , the obvious placements of overly extravagant “first class” seats vs regular economy seats , were very off putting. People are sitting on cardboard for hours on end , add some comfort to your seats!"
Cons: "More humanly comfortable seats , I understand you get what you pay for, but having to be deliberately uncomfortable for 13 hours straight is extremely unfair."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Keep doing the same. Cost is not always the most important."
Cons: "My first meal was kind of burnt, and I wish they would offer a salt and pepper packets. Also, more frequent Rounds to pick up trash would be helpful"

Pros: "Comfortable and excellent hospitality."
Cons: "None."
Pros: "Flight attendants were all nice and friendly."
Pros: "There was a decent movie collection to watch."

Pros: "Great flight and loved the airport! Lounge serves a great meal as does the flight!"
Cons: "Shanghai immigration is slow."
Cons: "Baggage rules on itinerary didn’t match reality. Baggage 7kg was enforced, check in bags almost empty as documents & computers weigh a lot, and cant be trusted to “check-in”. If I had know we could check in four bags free it would have made a big difference. The itinerary says one each, plus one for Premier status, which adds up to three in our case. Not a happy camper. Will avoid EVA when there are other good choices. My wife had advised against EVA to begin with, check-in confirmed her advice. Crew didn’t come by much with water or juice, but they were courteous. Seat belt sign was put on when bumpy, but not turned off for the next hour or two of smooth sailing. “I told you so” was here reaction . . . ."
Pros: "Cute and friendly flight attendants. Food was very tasty. Seat were amazingly comfy - no probs with sore bottom. Cabin area clean. Check-in was very easy."
Cons: "Think seats maybe 1-2" (2.5-5cm) closer than Asiana - knees hitting seat in front and if person leaned seat back, it would hurt."
Pros: "Excellent and responsive service from what must be the most attractive flight attendants on the planet. Seats even in basic economy are very comfortable with adequate legroom for my 250 lbs frame. Food is good with two choices and an option to customize online prior to the flight; and drinks are offered several times during the flight with numerous choices plus hot coffee and tea. Restrooms are cleaned several times during the flight and are stocked with amenities like toothbrush and paste, blindfold for sleeping, lotions etc."
Cons: "Why is the flight to Asia so long? Maybe the pilot could step on the gas?"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Great movies."
Cons: "Not so good on the television shows"
Pros: "The 777 premium economy seats are quite good"
Cons: "Food was awful and service so-so. Rushed and unfriendly"
Pros: "I cannot say how much i enjoyed eva air. The stewardesses were wonderful the people in taipei i dealt with were fantastic."
Cons: "The woman i had to deal with in seattle at the ticketing desk was an absolute nightmare. Im heartbroken i dont remember her name because i would happily name her. Everyone else was perfect. The fella helping me even said "i am so sorry, she is awful and makes me very nervous. I will probably fly asiana from now on just so i do not have to deal with her."
Pros: "Never flew with EVA but timely take off and landing. Smooth flight. Kind crew members. I think everything is great because I did not expect a lot from this airlines."

Pros: "Friendliness, comfy seats"
Cons: "food,"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and fast help with passengers needs."

Pros: "I missed my flight"
Pros: "Great food, clean bathrooms, courteous and efficient service. It was my first time flying with EVA Air and I would definitely choose them again."

Pros: "Flight attendants are very courteous and polite. Try to please everyone. They even clean bathrooms often. Food were great too."
Cons: "I did not like the transfer from Eva to air Macau. Horrible. Long walk. No one there. No lounge to wait 5 hours!! I hate what happened"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and organized. Seats were standard but comfortable. Food lacked salt and flavor at times but the variety was good. Lots you watch and do on the in seat screens so I was never bored."
Cons: "Food needs to come with salt and pepper I the side or soy and hot sauce packets."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade based on being star Alliance gold. Thank you"
Pros: "Nice staff good movie selection good flight"
Pros: "The price the food okay. The leg room seemed more in economy than other airlines."

Pros: "relatively more spacious than other airlines"
Cons: "seat itself not comfortable enough, hard seat; food can perhaps be improved"
Cons: "Old 744 plane. One of the 3 remaining 744s. In flight entertainment has low resolution screen (but touch screen though). Crew service was average - below par for an Asian airline. Seats are not comfortable. No drinks were offered after meal service for such a long flight. Please learn from SIA."
Pros: "Awesome flight...on time and good food.. customer service was excellent"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Bad bad bad I book 3 months ahead, they should put us in the front row seat instead so far to the back seat."

Pros: "Crew and flight comfort were fine until the flight got canceled after sitting on the plane for over an hour"
Cons: "Wasn’t happy with the accommodation after the flight cancellation, was told no other flights for 3 days so I ended up paying $250 more to get on a different airline that day to make the wedding I was going for."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, seats in bad shape, screen not working, ......"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super delayed !! Delayed time is longer than flying time. What the heck !!"
Pros: "The crew and attempt to help with anything I needed"
Cons: "Limited leg room for a big guy like me. My cancelled flight from Boston to phx was too long of a layover"
Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash"
Cons: "We were offered no form of refund, miles, or anything after a 6 hour layover. We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "My entertainment system was not working and the crew wasn’t very helpful about it."
Pros: "Overall top service."
Cons: "A little too directive, exemplified by ordering people to pull down their window shades, for my Americans can mentality. Otherwise great!"
Cons: "I like it"
Cons: "Emirates did not allow us to select the food preference as we had booked through a third party. They literally starved us for 14 hours as we r vegetarian and could not eat meat laden foods."
Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew was surly, never smiled. They all seemed very tired and intolerant of customers. Service was minimal. Food was tasteless and salty. Water was offered only once on a 14 hour flight. Aircraft was very cramped- no room to walk in the aisle without hitting the aisle seats. Overhead compartments were crammed full and it was very difficult to find space for a small bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai. She was allowed in Houston but was charged $100 in Dubai for same weight."
Pros: "I liked the service but the problem is carry on bags"
Cons: "Carry on bags they're taking my small bags I don't like it they did to cargo"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Tiny seats. No leg room. No storage under the seats."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."
Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and moved things through"
Cons: "Food could be improved as was movie selections"
Pros: "Entertainment options, boarding process"
Cons: "Food quality is still good but slightly below previous experiences"
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Need Indian tea"
Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Cons: "The planes still seem dated on the interior, but entertainment system is expansive."
Pros: "As comfortable as one could hope for a long haul economy seat."
Cons: "I was expecting a ve"
Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."
Pros: "All went fine"
Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."
Pros: "flight was empty so everyone had the chance to experience better treatment from flight attendants."
Cons: "no complaits"
Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."
Cons: "Was required to check my small roll aboard because I had a backpack, while other passengers were allowed to carry on multiple large items."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "i would like to be upgraded I first class (for free)! :)"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Handling Flight delays Management"
Pros: "I loved the hospitality and the attention to detail throughout the flight."
Pros: "I was ready for a tortuous 14+ hour flight since I had a center seat in the very last row... But, I was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed tracking the trip on the entertainment center and viewing outside on the cameras."
Cons: "Navigating the entertainment system was a bit complicated and the touch screen didn't respond well to my touch."
Pros: "Good overall experience."
Pros: "Great menus, get you all excited. Variety, interesting dishes. Generous with wine and drinks."
Cons: "It's... airline food. Doesn't live up to the promise of the menu. Cooked too long ago, reheated too much, ... I understand that they have constraints, that's what you get when you want to eat in the sky. But I have eaten better food in airplanes, in economy."
Pros: "Hospitality and vegetarian food Maintaining the timings"
Cons: "Food wasn't that great. They ran out of choices"
Cons: "Complimentary varieties can be increased"
Pros: "Very nice plane"
Pros: "Accommodating a lot more than American Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "13 hour delay"
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Cons: "Roomier"
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efficient. Flight was pretty smooth."
Cons: "On time departure would have been nice. 2.5 hours late."
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Cons: "It was canceled"
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The food was improved and the seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Early departure"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "No entertainment, plane was small"
Cons: "First delay notification: 1 hour 20 minutes 1 hour later, Second delay notification: 3 hours 15 minutes 2 hours later: Third delay notification: 3 hour 50 minutes Fourth delay notification: 4 hours 25 minutes Fifth delay notification: 4 hour 32 minutes No explanation for reason. Last time flying Delta."
Pros: "Excellent service in most every respect! Boarding was easy, accommodations were quite ample, food was great, and the entertainment was plentiful."
Cons: "Slight problem with making my seat into a bed, which wasn't fixable. Movies were good, except for the trailers before and after each, which seemed to take forever! Didn't get the seats my wife and originally booked with China Southern/Delta, but the substitution was quite adequate! Problems with checking in on flights, as neither airline seemed to be able to deal with this split ticket! But they tried very hard to make thing up to us, which goes a long way to making us feel like we are valued customers!"
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "Amenities, service, and punctuation of flight"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew was very rude."
Pros: "No vegetarian options in first class.. and go go wouldn5 hook up. Flight was an hour late...but that was ok."
Cons: "The pilot did a nice job of flying in and banking so we could see the view.."
Pros: "Almonds"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Friendly staff staff, smooth boarding experience, DC+ positive experience"
Cons: "757-200 outdated for having spent 10 hours on that same plane (stop but no plane change) having flown shorter haul flights on many updated 757 was disappointing."
Pros: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Cons: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."
Cons: "No drink or snack service. No trash pick up. No option to purchase or rent headphones"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "Well, even United brings a tray of waters on the short flight from Portland to Redmond. Hard to believe it was impossible to serve some drinks on this 1 hour fairly empty flight from Seattle. Also, when taking off the plane surged and slowed several times. I had to wonder if the pilot was in training?"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "The flight was fine, attendants we're good, entertainment options are great."
Cons: "Boarding. It was probably the worst I've seen. A shared intercom system between two gates (b7 and b7a), boarding flights around the same time and our flight beginning portions of pre boarding with no announcements caused mass confusion. Passengers lining up to go before they should, bumping into each other, no info or corrections over the intercom. The gate agent yelling at people to move aside. Overall terrible gate agents and terrible set up. Flight crew was great though."
Pros: "everything was very nice"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "Late and missed my international connection"
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Cons: "*Again, my first choice of main off the menu, in Delta One, had run out. *Not a fan of the Delta One seats."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
Pros: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"
Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"
Pros: "The entertainment was great!"
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours making me late for the next two flights and ultimately costing me an entire day longer in transit. While I understand these things happen, Air Canada's response to me asking for help was abysmal. Ultimately, they didn't care and told me it was my problem. Sadly, one of the first people I talked to really did want to help and arranged flights that would have gotten me back on track but he was prevented from confirming the changes due to management. I will never fly with Air Canada ever again."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Boarding in the rain is definitely not a good experience! The flight delayed so long that some of us who had connecting flights had to run from gate to gate (including clearing Canada customs) within 20 mins. Last but not least, Taipei Taiwan should NOT be listed as China."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was unable to board because I didn't have an ETA - I was unaware of this requirement until check in. I was only transiting thru Canada - the ground staff were horrible."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Pros: "Wifi was great with very little disruptions. Service on the flight was expedient and frequent. In seat entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I had the only seat on the row with no power for devices. All seats have USB power, but I was working on a laptop and had no AC power. The other seats did. This seems to be the case for the window seats on the right side of the plane and the aisle seats on the left side of the plane."
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "the crew was very kind with getting those with close connecting flights off first."
Cons: "it was an hour late."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Better luggage Service"
Pros: "movie selection on international flight was great."
Cons: "Had a serious delay, which was not acknowledged in anyway. We just waited near the gate for a long, long time. Also, for one of my flights, my group number was never called. I asked the flight attendant about it (when I passed through the gate after most other customers had boarded) and she flippantly responded with something like, "Yeah, maybe I didn't call your boarding zone. I don't know. Whatever." This left a terrible first impression on me."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."
Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."
Pros: "Friendly service is so important to me - and the staff and flight crew at Air Canada met all my expectations. I had the displeasure of flying United on the way to Seattle and I must say the service at Air Canada is far above!"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"
Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."
Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Comfort. Individual screens"
Pros: "Superb experience all around....comfortable, clean, good entertainment, on-time, good food curteous crew!"
Cons: "Nothing- we will definitely travel with you again!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."
Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."
Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."
Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."
Pros: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Pros: "NIL"
Cons: "40 min flight delayed for 1 and a half hours. Missed connecting flight. Staff was extremely rude to the hordes of people inquiring about missing their connecting flight, and were given different instructions."
Cons: "You"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Pros: "New plane lots of comfort"
Cons: "Canadian airport very confusing got lost twice even with directions."
Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"
Pros: "nothing was overpowering good, just an average flight there & back"
Cons: "the entertainment system was terrible"
Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."
Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"
Pros: "standard short hop flight"
Cons: "Check in was ridiculous. I went through al the on line procedures and was even able to print out my luggage tag at the kiosk... but then had to wait in line for 45 minutes just to drop my luggage! I came more than 2 hours before as instructed, but the agent at the "baggage drop off" (really the all-round agent for both checking in and baggage drop off) did not show up until less than 90 minutes before the flight, and then there was only one to handle what had become a very long line."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Everything was fine. The plane is pretty spacious."
Cons: "Had to pay for food on an international flight??? One bathroom in the back, and flight attendants were blocking the way to it for at least 70% of the time."
Pros: "Plane was very clean, airline staff were nice, rebooking a flight was super easy (automatic and via email)."
Cons: "They are very strict with carry-ons, and their overhead bins are quite small. If you have a "pushing it' carry-on that fits with US carriers, assume it will not fit on Air Canada."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough. Leg room was good too"
Cons: "Showed up to hear that my flight was delayed for 5 hours. I was offered a credit with my boarding pass, but couldn't use it to buy a beer (which I think I was entitled to after learning about the delay) or anything from the convenience store. So basically my scheduled arrival time of 4pm ended up being 2am. Good thing I got to use my non-refundable hotel for a whopping 3 hours... After being told that this is apparently the normal experience for Air Canada, I don't see myself booking again anytime soon."
