Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and my luggage didn’t make the plane."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "The crew was great and the seat was good"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours delayed"

Pros: "the video controller in the headrest of the seat ahead of me. you could see the flight pattern, speed, temperature outside and other specs, which were interesting."
Cons: "once again, the delta crew does not maintain their planes properly. during the taxi stage to get to the airway to lift off, there was a horrendous growling sound coming from the plane............seems like their hydraulic system is not maintained very well at all and it made a howling sound throughout the plane all the way to take off! we were wondering if there was something wrong with the plane."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Great Service and flight was without problems or delays. Arrived on time ."

Pros: "The plane and entertainment system was good. The cabin crew was a little slow. But all in all it was a good flight."

Pros: "Early arrival. On time departure. Good selection of movies"

Cons: "Overall: pretty good."

Pros: "Food were bad. Out of air condition"

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Cabin crew super helpful & friendly. The food was great - all snacks & meals were well prepared and had great flavor, I’m not saying it’s a 5 star restaurant, but I was wasn’t expecting the quality we received. Great job! Impressed by Delta service."
Cons: "Traveling is always a challenge - abundance of patience required! We traveled from Dallas, Atlanta, Amsterdam, to Rome & back. Every country had a little different process for boarding and getting around - most had friendly staff, on point, helping clueless, stressed, & frustrated travelers. I was really disappointed in Atlanta, not a very welcoming or helpful spirit for visitors to US - not all (80% were awesome), mainly those trying to greet and direct through customs. Most hate the arrogant America anyway, don’t make it worse - put your best people on the front lines to help with international relations & show why the US is the best. Put those that don’t want to be here loading bags out back! Sorry for the lecture, but this is any business!"

Cons: "Turbulence but no one can help that"

Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"

Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "delayed flight by Skywest or West jet - Delta subsidiary / affiliate. it’s the 2nd flight in a row that’s delayed. but much better than American Airlines."

Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault."

Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."

Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."

Pros: "20 minutes ahead of schedule"

Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "I liked the legroom and the seat"
Cons: "No entertainment screen, no real food, I don’t care how long the trip is, I got first class, I expect first class service."

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "My entire flight experience was delightful. Was dry impressed with the staff both at Hartsfield-Jackson and DFW...and our flight crew was positively sublime."

Pros: "On time with no drama"

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."

Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"

Pros: "The lights where off to make it feel more homie, I liked that I had the seat to myself and the crew was nice."

Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "I appreciated that Delta was on time and prompt about getting passengers onboard. I appreciated that the stewardess was very courteous. I appreciated that there was no delay."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like. I had a previous bad experience with another airline that canceled my flight three days in a row. So I was very appreciative of the fact that Delta had available flights for me to leave."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, especially the attendant named Charlie. The cabin was also nice and cold. I hate getting too hot on planes so it was really nice that they had good AC going. Short trip overall and was very pleased!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"

Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Very courteous staff. Legeoom not too bad."
Cons: "Delay."

Pros: "Service in the flight !!"

Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"

Pros: "Delta provided a superior experience!"

Pros: "Easy loading and unloading the plane. Friendly staff"

Pros: "Nothing at all"

Cons: "Best flight to DFW"

Cons: "The video screen freaked up a lot and I was unable to watch movies listen to music for the better part of the 11 hour flight. I noticed other passengers had the same problem."

Pros: "on time; boarding was smooth; leg space was good"
Cons: "wifi was not working; food was below average; movie selection options poor"

Pros: "Everything other than luggage situation"
Cons: "Luggage left in London and had to pay for baggage when Momondo said luggage was included"

Pros: "Never made it on this fliggt due to previous flight was delayed. Im stuck in London as of now. Never booking with kayak again"

Cons: "I felt I was badly treated and there was no instruction to what they where checking for. I am very incline to not recommended Lufthansa Airline to anyone. The notification for change of Boarding Gate did not reflect immediately."

Cons: "Not a lot of newer movies"

Cons: "Was the worse food that I was served on a international flight."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and arrived early even though it left 30 minutes late."
Cons: "Lufthansa should schedule more time to make connections."

Pros: "Same nice crew"
Cons: "My luggage destroied"

Pros: "The staff was courteous,friendly and helpful. The Plane was on time. There was no short supply of liquids. The Crew made every effort to make our flight pleasant as possible. The in seat computer system worked very well, easy to use with good choices for entertainment. The staff apologized for the hot conditions during boarding."
Cons: "The PA system at the gate was not clear. The plane was almost unbearably hot during boarding. Our first snack on an 11 hour flight was stale pretzels and lukewarm orange juice, but this may have been from my choice of products. The food did get better as my expectations were not that high after the first round. The headphones were mono not stereo."

Pros: "I have always liked Lufthansa; however, got put on an American Airlines flight due to a missed connection and there were no further flights until later in the afternoon. Had to change airlines and they assured me my luggage would follow me. It did not!!!! Too many security checks, switching from place to place and being herded like cattle was not too pleasant. Security people were rude and very busy talking to each other to tend to their jobs. One person would tell you to do something and the next person would give you completely different direction. They were arguing amongst themselves and not paying attention to one of the most important things.....customers."
Cons: "On AA flight there were two small children running up and down the airplane most of the flight. Very disturbing and no one could rest. They were playing chase, hitting everyone's seat, and screaming at each other quite a bit. Parents obviously did not discipline them at all. After waiting in the airport for a completely different flight and not know what to expect this flight was not a pleasant one. American Airlines had overbooked the flight and they were begging people to give up their seats. They had a weight problem due to fuel amount and when we were approaching DFW we were diverted to Houston because we did not have enough fuel to stay in a holding pattern. We sat on the tarmac for a couple of hours, refueled, several people got off the plane in Houston in order to make connecting flights and then we FINALLY flew back to Dallas"

Pros: "Right on time, smooth flight, crew at the gate and onboard were super. Food was fine and plane was clean."
Cons: "The only problem with comfort is when the person in Front of me reclined the seat. I could not see my screen well Or get in and out of my seat well and had to recline my own seat in order to do so."

Pros: "The atmosphere they create is very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t now"

Cons: "Will need to add more recent movies for entertainment"

Pros: "I was upgraded to a better seat and the flight was comfortable"

Cons: "The boarding procedure was unorganized and extremely inefficient. The family sitting in the row across from us had two unparented and very loud children who were disruptive for the entire 10 hour flight. Even on landing the child was not wearing a seat belt. The woman got up to get her stuff out of the overhead compartment even though we were told to stay seated. At no point did any of the crew members do anything in regards to this family and their disruptive actions."

Pros: "My wife and I ran from our connection all the way from one end to the other and the crew could tell. They said after I stow my carry ons to corn to the back and get a drink and use the bathroom to cool down as we were just about to take off to taxi to the runway. The crew was absolutely great and the I. Flight entertainment and food was great. We just wish our luggage had made it back too. We are still waiting to see where our luggage is - if in Europe still or Dallas."
Cons: "I would say that other passengers had their kids behind us and they kept screaming and kicking our chairs. We told the woman to tell her kids to stop but all she said was “they are a child” when all they needed to do was just tell their kid to stop. Flight attendants saw and knew but I don’t know what they could do to help when they can’t help with bad parenting. I wish there was a clear way to upgrade to first class on a trip as it was difficult to find out how."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "No leg room. Seats to narrow. Food mediocre."

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable space at the bulkhead seat"

Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."

Pros: "My first time flying with Lufthansa was outstanding. Great service, super friendly and ready to please. Appreciated the free adult beverages and frequent availability of water during the long, dehydrating flight. In-flight movies were fun to pass the time."
Cons: "Disembarked the plane in a lot and had to shuttle back to the terminal. Not a big issue but much prefer disembarking at the terminal."

Pros: "Going out the crew left something to be desired, the crew on the return trip was outstanding! Friendly, courteous, caring, efficient."
Cons: "Ran out oof meal choices twice"

Cons: "The food is not tasty"

Pros: "Food was good and that is all I can say was good about that flight"
Cons: "The male Stewart was very unprofessional by commenting out loud that I was too fat for the seat that I was assigned. The lights in the plane kept going off and on along with the video. I could not understand the pilots English. I was not allowed to get out of my seat as much as I wanted. I was very upset and disappointed on the male Stewart attitude."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, helpful and attentive. Excellent boarding procedure."
Cons: "Entertainment system was very temperamental. Touch screen was extremely slow. The poor performance was aggravated by having the controls mounted on top of the armrests resulting in no place to rest one's arms without disturbing the entertainment system. The seats in regular economy were too small for a 10 hour flight. I am an average to small size person and had no room to get comfortable."

Pros: "Entertainment choices, food was delicious, beverages available in a timely fashion, and great crew."
Cons: "Crying baby"

Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."

Pros: "We were not cramped like US domestic flights. Bathrooms were kept cleaner."

Pros: "having the TV with lots of choices"
Cons: "There were screaming ( not just crying...but SCREAMING at a shrill pitch) for the entire 10 hour flight. I was never so ready to get off of a plane in my life. The staff tried to appease the many different situations as best they could, but they got wore out before the end of the the flight. There were people not sitting in their assigned seats, so mealtime was totally boggled and some got fed a full hour before the rest us is on the tail end of the serving. The last meal ( after I FINALLY got food, we had turbulence, so they stopped serving drinks to go with the meal, and no one ever came back and continued where they left off, so I ate my meal without a drink. I don't blame the airline because it was the many children in that section that made it absolutely miserable for everyone on board, but it was the worst flight I have ever taken...hands down."

Pros: "Crew very NICE. Customer service means a lot and they were wonderful."
Cons: "Old school entertainment system. A lot of hard tapping on the screen which bugs the person in front of you."

Cons: "LH761 was late by an hour and a half. I was not given help to get to my connecting flight LH438."

Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Most of the cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff was a concern. Flight departed one hour late. Scanner at Gate Z13 was malfunctioning. One steward from Frankfurt to Dallas was pre-judging my food choice based on how I look. Normally that would not bother me, but he kept asking if I had ordered a Vegetarian or Hindu meal several times even after I confirmed that I had requested the standard meals for all my journey. The same steward on the Dallas to Frankfurt demonstrated the same questionable behavior. Infants on the flight get very noisy and Lufthansa Staff can help by asking accompanying parents to be prepared prior to take off and landing with warm milk in the baby milk bottles which the children can ingest to equalize ear drum pressure. Unfortunately cabin crew is not using this simple technique and the children on board cry excessively with lot of pain making everyone around them very uncomfortable. This can be nerve wracking for all accompanying Lufthansa passengers near bulkhead rows. Frankfurt Main is too dependent on bus transportation causing passengers to get wet on days when rain occurs."

Pros: "Food choices were excellent. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Good quality: crew, equipment, customer service"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport: Had to walk for an hour to get from gate to gate. I was getting off an international flight and onto another international flight. International gates are usually closer than that. On the flight: 1. The armrests pull up, which is great if you're traveling with family or a significant other. But, in my case, it was an overweight and obese lady, who didn't fit in her seat and just slipped into half of mine. I was stuck with half a seat with her arm bumping mine for a 12-hour flight. I landed with a bruised arm. It was a round trip flight. When I had submitted a complaint, Lufthansa refunded me a 100$, which is nice of them, but I think they should have upgraded me for my return flight instead to make up for the first flight being uncomfortable. 2. I paid for the internet service and was charged double for it. Again, had to submit a complaint and was refunded the money. Check-in: The online system wouldn't allow me to check in online because my passport wasn't biometric."

Pros: "Everything was pretty good. Except for the seats."
Cons: "On the long haul flight the seats started to hurt after a few hours. The seats on the short haul flight felt more comfortable."

Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."

Pros: "So much continent flight with online check - in. I have to stayed over night at the hotel in Frankfurt and all my lagged come from Barcelona to the end of my destination. On my flight had one passenger got sick before boarding, the crew had responded very quick to support his life. And great entertainment."

Pros: "Crew was very good. Pilots, definitely, were high level professionals."
Cons: "No negative comments for this leg."

Pros: "Had individual screens for each passenger. Most seats seemed to have a good movie selection."
Cons: "Chaotic doesn't even begin to describe boarding. We had to be bussed to the jet for some reason, then there were two doors to board through that people would just pick at random."

Pros: "Friendly crew, no delays"
Cons: "Not enough healthy options, such as fresh fruits and vegetables"

Pros: "Loved the staff, very nice! The food options were good & I appreciated the veggie options. Desert could be optional since I never eat it. Oh & the beverage cart with all the options is the absolute BEST."
Cons: "No noise barriers. I realize people will bring babies on flights, but after 11 straight hours (seriously, 11!) of screaming babies, the whole plane was tired & on edge."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They changed my seat at the last minute!!!! Small spaces, I told to the assistants and they did't help me at all, worst fly ever!!!!!"

Pros: "Premium economy seats, also premium economy is located very well in front of the plane."
Cons: "Food quality was aweful. Not sure why Lufthansa can't train the catering in Shanghai better. Worst vegetarian food ever."

Pros: "I will always try to fly Lufthansa in Europe from now on. You have courteous and capable employees and all of your systems are set up to be intuitive and straightforward."

Pros: "Cork test and effociency"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "A flight without hassles is a great flight! Timely, friendly and smooth landing!"
Cons: "Walking up a flight of stairs with my heavy carry on bag!"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Forget the bottom line and make more leg room in economy so passengers have a good experience, families with young children should all be stuck together! I had the pleasure of having my seat kicked half the flight by a small child whose mother did not seem to notice or care. Food was not good! And airplane food can be good, just ask Quantas Airlines."

Pros: "this flight was very good, all right."
Cons: "Movies need to be have better selection - are allways same, no pleasant movies."

Cons: "The food was really bad. There wasn’t a lot of variety in entertainment."

Pros: "New, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Salad 90% celery chunks, and beef that was 90% gristle. I paid extra for more leg room but got a bulkhead seat that had less leg room , and cramped, hard to access table and video screen."

Pros: "AA128 is nice. The plane is new and the seat is very comfortable. The service is fine."
Cons: "Food is at a very small portion ( I am a small Asian lady so I am fine but barely enough for a child.). My luggage was lost."

Cons: "Terribly disorganized with security checks and confusion since no organized area to hold people."

Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."

Pros: "Great Workers, and Super nice staff."

Cons: "Jetway should not be backed up all the way to the counter. Stop calling so many groups for boarding without knowing that no one is actually getting onboard. Force subsequent groups to step aside until called."

Pros: "courteous staff"
Cons: "no food, even for purchase, was offered no snack for 3 hour + flight"

Pros: "Crew attentive"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "More entertainment choices"

Pros: "Good service good flight fair food and nice seat."

Pros: "Entertainment. GoGo did not want to work for me at 1 he before arrival."
Cons: "Give me a coupon for food before takeoff or on arrival. Skip the CupofNoodles. After Japan and Shanghai, cup of noodles seem really in bad taste."

Pros: "They do not have an office or ticket desk in Pudong airport which made early arrival into this airport difficult. No one answered the phone at the Very little English is spoken here"

Cons: "The television screen with on-board entertainment options didn't work properly, so I was unable to watch movies/television or play games. This was disappointing as it was a fairly long flight."

Pros: "Getting off the plane!!!"
Cons: "Everything!!!"

Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."

Pros: "It was amazing and super easy. I cant wait to go back."
Cons: "I wish they had a meal and free checked luggage. Not the worst, but not the best part"

Pros: "Flight was good, decent food and drink"
Cons: "the delay caused ua to miss connection and had to be rebooked"

Pros: "Air Canada's crew is very professionnal."

Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."

Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."

Pros: "The crew were terrific, business class splendid, information readily available but not incessant."
Cons: "We left 90 minutes late: 30 minutes because Air Canada arrived in Shanghai late, then another hour because we'd missed our window. As a result, I missed my connection and had to spend the night in an airport hotel in Montreal (which Air Canada paid for). These things happen, and they were very professional and sympathetic about it, but under the circumstances I can't give it more than 3 stars overall."

Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Excellent and diverse film selection. I broadened my horizons watching documentaries on hacking, gun running, and on an Afghan refugee teen in Iran, a film about a black American teen in Germany, and a French drama."
Cons: "Most of the time economy class is uncomfortable because of the lack of foot room. So this time, for the long flight from China, I chose an exit row precisely for the extra leg space. However, there is no footrest at all , which as you're surely aware, is terribly uncomfortable when sitting for long periods, let along trying to sleep. Furthermore, the exit row seats are not provided a substitute for missing the usual back-of-the-seat pocket with magazines ; that means no spot to place books/papers/trash for the entire flight. Finally, I am 5'2 and petite, and was seated between two fairly slim men, and yet we were still all squeezed side to side. I had no elbow rest. I actually rested my head on one man's shoulder, once he was asleep, and hope he didn't notice. While this is unfortunately typical of economy class, it is not decent."

Pros: "Staff communicated delays well, and they were polite once we got going. In flight entertainment offered was good, but heard some passengers having trouble with their screens not working."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. Theme of my vacation. When we arrived in Dallas we had no idea what baggage claim we were supposed to be at. There was no announcement, flight information displays didn't say anything."

Pros: "On board entertainment available and more room. Not a full plane"

Pros: "The flight attendants were vey kind, and the landing was very smooth. It was an excellent flight."

Pros: "The crew was nice, accommodate well. Sit lean back okay, good convenience of charging mobile device. Food was okay. Entertainment good choices."
Cons: "Where do I start? Baggage check in is horrible and long. Wait in line for 1 hr with all counter open. Process just too long and too slow. Unclear of instruction for paying extra baggage. Security at gate taking too long to get through. Seat is too small, a larger person took almost 1/3 of my seat for the duration of flight and he wasn't that big. No noise control in aircraft, couldn't sleep at all (9hrs flight), kids and adult taking, playing like there home. The cabin smell very very unpleasant, due to body odor of passengers. Only 4 restroom for whole economy class, but 6 restrooms for 40 passengers of business class Due to the region of the air liner at, majority of passengers were rude, obnoxious, loud, and really really smell."

Pros: "Great free movie selection to watch on the flight!"
Cons: "The crew and gate check-in assistance is mediocre. Their attitude is one of indifference. This group is probably just a little better Spirit Airlines, which I consider the worst airline I have ever flown on. Also, I had to pay exorbitant flight change fees. These flight changes should be free. If I have the option, I will not use Air Canada in the future."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a long time, after so many frequent changes. The airline did not even give an excuse or explanation for the changes and the delay."

Pros: "The gate agent was in a really good mood, and I made her laugh, so she bumped me into business class. The flight crew was awesome."
Cons: "Old, sad, smelly, loud, poor upholstery, seat structure so old and so stressed the guy in front of me was almost in my lap."

Cons: "Canada Airlines lost my luggage and I still don't have it."

Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Coach seating on the 777 is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."

Pros: "The movie selection and the food was great! The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The lack of space in the cabin was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Stewardess was friendly Movies were good Relatively room and clean Customs in Vancouver was awesome!!!"
Cons: "Steward getting on the plane in Shanghai had an attitude, was actually a jerk Food was not very appetizing"

Pros: "The landing of the plane was good and one flight attendant was courteous. The movie options were pretty good. At least the wine was free."
Cons: "The check-in counter in DCA was AWFUL with only two people running and no kiosks working. They were rude and didn't listen to us either. When we got to the food part, it was disguisting. First of all, I am vegetarian but even if I ate meat, I wouldnt have eaten it. So I just ate bread for the 13 hour flight. Besides one flight attendant, the rest were rude, harsh and had a generally bad attitude. AIr Canada has BY FAR been the worst travel experience for me thus far. I guess you get what you pay for."

Pros: "Its entertainment"
Cons: "very uncomfortable coach seats and 4 hour delay in Vancouver airport"

Pros: "They were on time and the flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats and the plane was just too small for such a long flight."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Food was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "There was 1 crew member who once spilled ice over me & laughed it off saying he was just checking to see if I"m awake. Then another time spilled OJ on me & didn't even notice or apologize or offer a napkin so I can clean myself off. Also I had wanted to upgrade my seat for this flight but was unable to because there was no representative at the huge airport in Shanghai. Nor could I do it online. That was a huge inconvenience!"

Pros: "Great crew and service. Seats were comfortable for tall people."
Cons: "Delays for both international flights. Food made us sick."

Pros: "Just about everything. And to top it all off, I found that the air inside the cabin was very good and so I arrived after 14 hours on board without red eyes and a headache"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Although the air planes are newer, the seats are uncomfortably smaller which makes long distance flights very unpleasant."

Pros: "No protection from noise. Gave up watching movies."
Cons: "Better earphone"

Pros: "Entertainment, and a comfortable flight."
Cons: "Announcements were not loud and clear when boarding. No complamentary food or snack was offered."

Pros: "Never thought Canada air is so bad in international air services. Would never use Canada Air for my international travel in the future."
Cons: "no entertainment in flight during almost 3-4 hours of flying time."

Pros: "comfortable environment and quality service."

Cons: "Flight delayed half hour, rush through all the steps, we are the first one get to the plane. But all the other people can not make it because we sit at near front and started the rush earlier. However, all of our checked luggage so can not make it. We are waiting for delivery on the next day. This type of short connection of international flight should not be arranged as we told you and AC when you told us the original booking was changed due to AC flight modification."

Pros: "Crew was respectable and the food was good."
Cons: "The policy of having to check-in in order to have a seat is ridiculous and borderline racketeering. If one pays for a flight, they should get the ticket they paid for. It should not be based on whether they check-in because Air Canada wants to make more money on selling their seat because they didn't check-in. This is unacceptable. Since it's a company policy, my wife and I would enforce our own policy in response: we will choose not to fly Air Canada again."

Pros: "Weather was nice so it was not due to weather. We had to stay in Toronto overnight."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Flight was delayed."

Pros: "bigger seats than most average asian airlines"
Cons: "service is poor. have been on both economy and busines class in air canada and you are treated very differently. the staff on economy treat you indifferently and have a little chip of their shoulder. the food is awful and most flights you have to pay for food, even for international flights, which is apparently against the law as they are obligated to serving food. i had to pay for a bowl of noodles - omg. essentially it is really about service. Dismal. It is noted they often win north american awards for their service. If anyone has flown american airlines - yes it may be the best of the worst. So if you have an option, skip it altogether. Try Cathay / Qatar / Singapore airlines wow!"

Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."

Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"
