Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "The crew and the service"
Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."
Pros: "SQ always has the best looking flight attendants"
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "The space"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "In this fairly new plane, the rows of seats are so close together, the leg room is minimal. When the tray is lowered, you feel completely squashed in the seat. The food trays are not picked up quickly after eating."
Pros: "They were very generous with food and drinks. It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Our seats were uncomfortable. We did not like sitting on the front row three deep. We would have preferred the extra legroom seats we had on the 1st flight"
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats and leg room not as comfortable as older plane. The entertainment system was confusing to use ( again older model) hence not as user friendly."
Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"
Cons: "They are doing excelent job."
Pros: "Despite being a very late flight at 11 pm, the crew was courteous but not over the top, when all the passengers wanted to catch some sleep"

Pros: "This was the most fabulous crew I have ever flown with on ANY flight in so many years of my travels!

Cons: "The A380 was probably SQ's oldest one, which that was a newer plane."
Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Food focused on Japan on both legs, LAX to NRT and NRT to SIN. Variety would have been nice."
Pros: "Overall good"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding was just ok, but departure delayed by half hour. Seats were really poor. Zero comfort.. felt like sitting on a cramped park bench. Entertainment system is ancient. Can't see and can't listen properly. Didn't expect this type of horrible aircraft from Singapore Airlines!"
Cons: "The hot food was dry and lost my appetite"
Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"

Pros: "everything good"

Pros: "But I got to take Qatar airline and the service was great"
Cons: "Almost missed the flight, havent noticed the passengers in prior"
Cons: "Because the flight from IAD to London was cancelled, I never made it to this flight."
Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Pros: "The crew on this flight we amazing had a great flight Thank You"
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable. There was ample entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints at all. They are very professional and I would chose them again."

Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Equipment rather poor, screen isn't very clear, hard to read subtitles."
Cons: "Business cabin is not as good as the Air France one"
Cons: "The Manchester stopover was just a lot of standing in lines. From Manchester to Singapore, the plane was full and my seat mates didn't get up when we needed out. So, we escaped to the back for a while where we were "hushed" by a stewardess. The stewards didn't seem to like it when we were out of our seats, but 12 hours is too long to be stuck in a middle seat."
Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
Pros: "Great customer service, food was fine, seats were comfy in economy too. Definitely would fly again and recommend to everyone!"
Cons: "Bring some salt and pepper, or only go with the Korean menu. Western fare was exceptionally bland"
Pros: "Crew members were as friendly and helpful as always"
Cons: "Being disabled doesn't always mean that you get on and as quickly as you would like. We were the first off in SeaTac, but the last to be taken to Passport control."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late departing"
Pros: "Asiana crew was very cooperative and helping. The were fast and always bringing water and juice to passengers in 9.5 hrs flight. they were thorough in takeoff and landing preparedness."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and kind. The food inflight is pretty good for airline food! We were able to check two pieces of checked baggage per passenger, no problem (to/from USA)."
Cons: "Boarding from SEA is organized with designated lanes for various rows, but boarding elsewhere, there was no protocol for when to line up."
Cons: "Rude flight attendant. Disgusting!"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable and remote panel for adjustment was too hard to manage plus entertainment remote was unless. I think plane is too outdated. Wear and tear cave seem throughout the plane interior"
Cons: "It was cancelled. There was no proactive communication from Kayak or Asiana about the situation. We had to cancel and rebook ourselves."
Pros: "The food service, how nice the aircrew is."
Cons: "No vegetarian food I’d you didn’t pre-order 24 hours in advance. I couldn’t check in online so preorder not an option. Boarding started late on both flights"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Dirty tray table. Poor audio quality. Tight legroom. Overly warm cabin."
Pros: "Their customer service and food"
Cons: "Very limited selection that repeats over both segments"
Pros: "We had a four hour layover in Seoul and there are free tours from the airport. Most were at the wrong time and too long, but we were able to go to a nearby casino and given a welcome package that helped kill a couple hours."
Cons: "It took an hour to get our luggage in Seattle. Too long!"
Pros: "On our flights to Palau and our return flight to Incheon, I had entire rows to myself, which was sweet!! I was able to stretch out a bit and get come good sleep."
Cons: "Airlines have done a disservice to travelers by adding rows and packing passengers in like sardines. Thus making travel an uncomfortable nightmare for economy seats. Take out a few rows and add a premium economy section - that would be awesome! Plus the plane we flew on was old - still had ash trays. The attendants, while courteous were not very friendly and cocktails poured were not very good. And, the charger in my seat did not work - bummer. while I appreciate very much uneventful and safe flights to and from our destination, I will more than likely not fly Asiana again. I don't like giving poor reviews, but you can't know to fix something if you don't know it is broken."
Pros: "We were able to check in and board the plane on time. Im fully satisfied."
Cons: "The food isnt good."
Cons: "No enough fruit to eat."
Pros: "Loved the service and comfort, food was exceptional for an airline."
Cons: "Suggest a better selection of movies and tv shows."
Pros: "I do like the Asiana airlines, they do arrive and depart as planned and they have a decent selection of food good service from the flight attendants. Pretty much, overall good experience in the plane"
Cons: "I personally can't say I didn't like anything in the Asiana airlines. overall it's been a great experience"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Nice and very good excellent"
Pros: "2 free checked bags."
Cons: "Old, uncomfortable seats. No in-seat power. Weak entertainment options on tiny screens. 3-4-3 configuration means no seat is a good seat. No legroom. I hated my experience on thus airline and will work to avoid on future trips to Asia. Paid $200 for two bulkhead (NOT exit row seats) and flight attendants hassled me about where I kept my carry-on tote bag. Avoid, avoid, avoid."
Pros: "comfortable and simple, friendly staff and no hassles"
Cons: "options on food and drinks limited movies to select limited options and nothing exciting for my taste"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Plane looked clean and in good condition. Seat comfort was okay."
Cons: "Sat on the plane for over 1 hour waiting for connecting flight."
Cons: "The food was worst food we had in any flight. I highly suggest try giving to humans first before offering to someone on 11 hrs flights. Its almost like prepared for animals."
Cons: "Smalll old fuzzy tv with no options"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Seats need new foam."
Pros: "The service, foods"
Cons: "The servers were very nice. They were always willing to help with all passion. The foods on board were decent. I love it how they had Korean traditional foods and American foods for the choice! I had 2 free bags checked with 22kg for each which satisfied me. Also I brought 2 small carry on bags. The only thing is the English of some servers were not really good. Sometimes they didn't understand what customers said. But I think it is just fine"
Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin. We were told that it was airline policy to keep the cabin that temperature. There is no way to adjust the temperature yourself. Also the chicken entrees should be avoided. If given the option chose the Korean meal."
Pros: "Very good service."
Cons: "The flight attendants took WAY too long to gather the food trays after the passengers had eaten. They should make many more trips throughout the journey serving water and juices."
Pros: "the seats were spacious considering it was economy."
Cons: "the kid next to me was awful, the crew was rude if you didn't speak korean, overall unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Entertainment and courteous crew"
Cons: "Food was OK not the best. Seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We noticed we were seated together just before and they accommodated us at check-in and got us seats together. The food was good. They gave us nice little amenities (ear plugs, slippers, eye cover) and the food was good."
Pros: "Really nice staff; somewhat hard to understand their English."
Cons: "Seats were not real comfortable. Korean food selections were good but the American selections, not so good."
Pros: "They got the special meals right & most flight attendants were efficient."
Cons: "Poor service! Why is Korean ground crew always in such a rush & so pushy? Much of their English lacks basic manner in civility."
Pros: "Service was great, English could be better"
Cons: "Video system outdated, not intuitive and failed to allow several movies to play."
Cons: "Due to problems loading luggage, and not really knowing what to do, my flight was delayed over three hours, made me miss my layover by fifteen minutes and get stuck in Korea, they provided me with another ticket, but since they didn't have another direct flight, they put me on another layover. My next flight with Asiana to the US from Korea encountered another problem and I was further delayed another two hours, with another two hour layover in LA. The cabin crew was friendly, but not very useful. They provided food, but no help. This is the worst Star Alliance airline I have ever flown. I will not be a returning customer."
Pros: "The leg room is very spacious and the staff are very friendly."
Pros: "The headphone jack was in the seat in front, not in the armrest; slippers were passed out"
Cons: "The plane got hot half-way through the flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic as always."
Cons: "It seemed like the air conditioning wasn't working so the flight was really warm and uncomfortable. I was trying to fan myself with the emergency exit handout. Also, the tv screens were really small, old, and didn't have a very good selection of movies."
Pros: "I ever eat like that delicious food in Air. Also bread and other small desert's was good. Just want to say Thank's"
Pros: "Everything nice service"
Pros: "The staff are nice and friendly and courteous. Food is pretty good too."
Pros: "The staff was kind and courteous. The meals were delicious. I appreciated the slippers, pillow and blanket. Boarding was very efficient. My trip was very comfortable, especially the leg room. I enjoyed the entertainment, especially the accupressure demonstrations."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I disliked."
Pros: "The food was good the staff pleasant and professional, for an airplane seemed to be clean. Everyone has their own personal entertainment screens. Food was pretty decent, better than I have ever had on a domestic US flight. Staff always seemed to appear happy and satisfied with their job/work; service with a smile."
Cons: "I found that unlike my SEA to Seoul flight, the staff on this 9 hour flight only brought drinks around during meal time; or you had to specifically call a staff member to get a drink. I really appreciated the first flight staff that took care to bring drinks around more often without needing to call on them. They seem very stingy with carry on items. Other than that, it was a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Flight is on time. Crew were great and love that they offer free tour when you have long lay over."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "The meal selection and seats are not comfortable. It would be nice to have wifi and phone chargers on all flights"
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Asiana Airline allowed a drunken passenger sit next to me. Everyone can smell and knew that he is drunken. The 1st thing he did after sitting was drinking alcohol from his pocket. Yes, one of the staff came to him and got the drink from him. But, he talked me for about 4hours nonstop and made me uncomfortable at all. Other passengers around me saw him because he talked too loud. I expected that they would offer me another sit and left him alone. During 10 hrs flight, I had 2 Tylenol capsules because of the smell of the alcohol from him. It was REALLY hard time for me to sit next to him during 10 hrs. DO NOT ALLOW A DRUNKEN PERSON TO GET ON A PLAIN FOR OTHERS."
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Pros: "They held the flight for us."
Cons: "Something to eat"
Cons: "Better snacks."
Cons: "Wider seating"
Cons: "Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night."
Cons: "Everything. My first leg of this trip was the worst flight I had ever been on and this leg lived up to that standard"
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Pros: "Service was wonderful and flight pretty much smooth for the 6;5 hour ride back to Seattle. I do enjoy taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Had a 350 pound gentleman in the seat in front of me and had he had no idea of how stressed I was when he would try to adjust his to go back further."
Pros: "- entertainment - smooth boarding"
Cons: "- very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats"
Cons: "But the second plane was worse.... no video screens of any kind, no charging of any kind, no headrests, chairs were stiff and uncomfortable. You can stream shows on their wifi (free) but only if you have a charged smartphone or tablet, otherwise you're SOL. 2 bathrooms for the main cabin on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Pros: "One nickel hostess"
Cons: "PAID FR UPGRADDED SESTS AND THEY WETE GIVEN TO LATE ARRIVALS."
Pros: "Other passengers"
Cons: "It was terribly hot and the attendants didn’t serve us regularly. The skipped us when we wanted cold water:"
Pros: "Had row to ourselves."
Cons: "Entertainment arm rest did not work, flight attendants we're not very attentive to used items left on tray s to pick up. Empy cans ad wrapper s say for 3 hours before being picked up. Middle rest room was left very dirty due to bad hygene of passengers."
Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"
Pros: "The aircratf and on time operation"
Cons: "Gate agents not following AA.com policies to charge extra fees"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time Crew was very friendly Free movies while in flight is always nice Mobile boarding pass - every airline should have them (but they don't)"
Cons: "Having to pay $35 for a little extra leg room"
Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."
Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening. It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!"
Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"
Cons: "no charging station"
Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "It took a while day to get our bags after they decided to put it on the next flight"
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Cons: "close it!"
Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."
Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."
Pros: "It was effortless... easy boarding and accommodating crew. There was a lot of turbulence so only one beverage service and no food. Would rather be safe than have crew injured."
Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"
Cons: "Bad as above"
Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."
Pros: "seat comfortable enough"
Cons: "unbelievably tightly spaced seats. Incredibly uncomfortable to have knees pushed into seat ahead - - so tight almost impossible to get feet under seat."
Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "We boarded an hour early. It was at least 80° on the plane, and then everyone got on. The crew was very rude. They ignored everyone in coach."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Cons: "See above comments"
Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"
Cons: "2 different attendants spilled drinks all over me and my carry on"
Cons: "Never made it because first leg was canceled"
Pros: "Flight was canceled due to maintenance problem, American claimed rebooking was someone else's responsibility. I had to talk to 4 people before they rescheduled me for the next day. American's gates/terminals at LAX are also a pain--you never know if your flight will depart from the hinterlands of Tom Bradley terminal, or Terminal 4 or 6, which can mess you up with parking/security screening/scheduling. I will try to avoid flying American in the future. I didn't get any vouchers for the cancellation, either. BD"
Pros: "Great service. Lots of legroom"
Pros: "Was called ahead of time to e alerted to flight delay. But I'm still never flying American again due to the rudeness of the crew."
Cons: "We're asked at the gate to measure our luggage. We did, and while it fit, the material of the bag made it look bulky (but upon touch, it was clearly not a full bag). When we said that it fit; the woman literally just scoffed, said "no" rudely, and walked away. We were polite, so why the rudeness?!! Never again AA."
Pros: "Nothing...I had to be rerouted to Chicago to Seattle!"
Cons: "The fact that through no fault of my own, I arrived in Seattle much later than expected and my clients were not particularly happy with the delay."
Pros: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Nostalgic plane ride"
Cons: "Use more modern plane for these short trips. No drinks offered due to turbulence. Old Bombardier plane had no way of storing carry-ons other than beneath seat, thus limiting leg space"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Ground staff at Montreal were far from helpful. They kept saying “Call customer service.” and never offered any help/assistance for rebooking and finding a hotel room."
Pros: "Roomier seats overall, the headrest screens and USB ports are great!"
Cons: "We paid extra for seats with more leg room and got the same as everyone else. Why the charge? Our departure was delayed. The plane had some sort of fragrance regularly coming thru the ventilation that irritated my sinuses and made me ill. The water for the only service on the flight (for coach anyway) was warm and tasted odd. Cabin temperature was too warm (multiple logical arguments can be made for cooler temps over warmer)"
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked Flight left early & arrived early No delays from AC"
Pros: "I traveled with 2 kids so we liked all the options for entertainment ."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on the flight to Toronto our seats were not together at check-in. I had to sit seperatly from my two kids. Because that flight had only window and isle seat, whereas the returning home flight had window, middle and isle... That was much more comfortable"
Pros: "getting of the plane!"
Cons: "the bed bugs, no lights, no comfort, the cold, very limited service"
Pros: "My 15 minute nap"
Cons: "The male crew member seemed to be having a rough day."
Pros: "Very short flight, not much to say"
Cons: "Temperature varied widely throughout the flight. Entertainment system down for over an hour. No fresh food left for the back of the plane - Late departure."
Cons: "Employees very poorly trained in dealing with problems. While our flight was okay, the previous flight was overbooked and a number of transferring customers were bumped because their flight was late. I understand this is common practice, but the employees handled it VERY poorly, even yelling at the passengers when they voiced their dismay at what was going to be a very long layover after a very long international flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Only able to board because someone missed flight. Delayed flight by over 30 minutes."
Cons: "Flight was about an hour late due to crew problems."
Pros: "It was fine. :-)"
Pros: "The price was good and connections were well-timed, and my seat-mate was a nice guy!"
Cons: "There was no food on a 5-hr international flight, the video screen didn't work well, and the flight attendant was having a rough day. And we took off at least 30 minutes late due to a couple of technical issues."
Cons: "Many of us were refused boarding on the connecting flight. They gave away our seats. I arrived at the transvfer counter50 minutes prior to the flight. I was first. Gave excuse that bag must go with me. Customs confirmed that this is AC not customs. To add insult, they flight to Montreal was late, the flight to Boston was late, and finally my bag NEVER was on either flight so there excuse was an out right lie. I missed half the weekend home in over a month. AC doesn't value my time and I don't value their service. Every time I go back to this airline I realized why I left. Going to Asia; don't get suckered into using this route. BTW a friend on PVG-YUL-BOS never made it as well. AC still using a CRJ200 that can't land in weather. NOT A BUSINESS CLASS EXPERIENCE."
Pros: "There was drinks but no snacks like cookies or pretzels. There was no form of entertainment on the plane The lines on the airport was way too long and it was overcrowded"
Pros: "Flight crews were great."
Cons: "Ground crews and Air Canada's booking system caused no end of trouble. Weather started the problem but human error meant an incredibly stressful rebooking, requiring three agents at ticketing plus the IT help desk just to figure out what the agent I had reached over the phone had done. In Quebec City not nearly enough agents to check bags; huge lines, people being shunted to the front so they wouldn't miss their flights."
Cons: "No legroom at all. Try to squeeze far too many passengers."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Sabrina, was fantastic. Quite friendly and helpful. You can tell she loves her job. She patiently answered questions and made the flight really pleasant."
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Short flight. Great service (got a soda and pretzels on a 30 minute flight)"
Cons: "Small, worn plane."
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Pros: "It was a very short flight, but with all the weather issues in Seattle at the time, they did everything they could to get us off on time (maybe even early) to avoid air traffic control delays."
Pros: "I was really tired and the plane was full but I could nap. Baggage came quickly."
Cons: "No free meal because not technically an international flight I guess."
Pros: "We liked the entertainment options and the crews were very friendly."
Cons: "We didn't like not having blankets on the round-trip flights between Seattle and Toronto."
Pros: "Not really stands out as a positive."
Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."
Pros: "Very fast."
Pros: "I flew Seattle to Vancouver to Montrail to Nice. Sept 2 2016 on the way home I flew Nice, Frankfort, Calgary to Seattle Sept 12, 2016"
Cons: "Food from McDonalds would have been 10 times better than food they served. I ate only 2 bites and it smelled bad and made me feel nautilus."
Pros: "Media and staff very good"
Cons: "Airport was empty, plane was empty. But still had to wait to get on due to filled with people who put suitcases away that sat near front but not first class."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to pick my seat. I love the exit row."
Cons: "Being woken up. But it was for a good reason. Personal safety."
Cons: "Air Canada closed the door ten minutes before departure although the knew we were in the terminal trying to get to the gate. Air Canada charged us $315 for a flight two hours later."
Pros: "Service, attendants."
Cons: "Food for charge."
Cons: "For the price, the length and the fact that it was an international flight. I would have expected not to be required to paid for luggage and to have some food been provided to us. In particular, after the return flight was delayed considerably due to airplane issues."
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "All the flights left late. Not enough room for carry on luggage. No free booze on International flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time.Seats were comfortable with adequate leg room."
Cons: "There was no snack offered, just food for sale, and it was a long flight. Also there were several movies listed in the entertainment guide that were not available on the entertainment system. There were not many movies available at all."
Pros: "I enjoyed the selection of movies that they had."
Cons: "Seats are wildly uncomfortable and cramped. I guess that is what you come to expect from flying, but man does it suck. Longer flights, over 4 hours, should include a complimentary snack. It is a long while to go without food, and paying 5 bucks for a small pack of candy is a bit ridiculous."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Seating is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. It was one of the least comfortable flights I've been on in th past few years."
Pros: "Their 787 is indeed a dream to fly! The flight felt much shorter than on other airplanes."
Cons: "Their website didn't work for checking in, then their offices were closed most of the time, with no 24 hr support, leaving me high and dry on several occasions when I needed to check in, and when I needed to make a special meal request."
Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."
Cons: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight and would not allow me to board even though I had booked my ticket months in advance."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Was able to move from my assigned centre of row seat to an aisle seat, which however was I'm the last row outside the toilets. Checked bag came quickly in Seattle. Descent was gradual enough, or something, that my ears, which normally hurt excruciatingly from about 20,00-10,000 feet, barely bothered me."
Cons: "Check in, customs, etc in Toronto was a series of long long lines that took nearly 1.5 hours (not AC's fault but an unpleasant aspect of the trip). Plane was full and very cramped, impossible to get up and walk. The tv monitors on my side/half of the plane conked out midway through flight."
Pros: "Air Canada's cabin attendents make the journey bearable. Keep these people at all costs, becauae they are doing a fantastic job."
Cons: "I prefer the old-fashioned seatback monitor to rental ipads."
Pros: "The ground crew were always nice and friendly. They worked hard to deal with delayed flight, missed connection, and tight alternate connection. Flight crew were also friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Four-hour flight delay released in one hour increments without announcement -gate displayed "on time departure" for the duration of the delay. Our hassles were compensated with meager meal vouchers given too late, There was no pre-boarding on our flight (just one big cattle call) which made boarding with child and gear extra awkward,"
Pros: "Service was great, food provided on our international flight was delicious and more than plenty. Beverages were tasty, the check-in and boarding process was very smooth and well organized. My wife and I definitely had a great experience."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating during the flight but spoke very little English and could not help with information on connecting flight."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight due to a delay and the airline would not let us through because we could have made our second flight...."
Pros: "The seats on business were comfy, the service excellent, the movie selection was fair to poor, the food was also fair to good largely because they served a heavy lunch rather than a light breakfast."
Cons: "The food and movie selection."
Pros: "seat so so"
Pros: "The Air China crew was exceptional. They made sure wheelchair service was available all of the time without a hitch. They were very compassionate"
Cons: "The coach seating is very tight. I wish there was more leg room."
Cons: "If my flight was not 2hrs delayed, could catch up the transfer flight instead of late for the transfer and have to wait for the 2nd day flight and still stocked in Beijing Airport now"
Cons: "All old movies, no charging ports for economy class, and the flight attendants weren’t the nicest I’ve encountered."
Pros: "I was surprised that there were tons of in flight entertainment to select from. Crew was also very nice"
Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfy and one of the meals was bad"
Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "poor food variety"
Cons: "Don't like the food at all."
Cons: "No updates on reason for 2hr delay of flight."
Pros: "They tried their best to accomodate but didn't do much to make everyone feel treated well."
Cons: "Flight changed three times with different times. In the end we were delayed for 5 hours and missed connecting flights. They offered a $15 food voucher and forced people to sleep together in a hotel room since they refused to let people who came alone have their own room. They rebooked and made it a complete waste of a vacation day while we wait to board a new flight in the middle of the afternoon."
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "The flight was very hot the entire 12 hours, no individual air controls were present. We asked for a beer when the first drink service came around and were told only juice or water was available, while the next row of seats were served multiple beers without issue. After the service was over we rang the attendant button, it was immediately shut off and no one came to assist us. Rows ahead and behind us ran an attendant and were served. We asked again for a beer and were told they didn’t have it (these were all by the same attendant that was serving our area, who was liberally serving others in our area) We eventually got up to and went to the service station, where 5-7 other passengers were standing, helping themselves to beers in the carts and pouring themselves wine while flight attendants stood there chatting with them and continuing to ignore us. Eventually we were able to get ones attention and were able to secure two beers, after being told Mulltuple times that they didn’t have them, while other passengers were being served multiple at a time, or helping themselves to the beverage carts in the service areas. Staff was unprofessional and the entire flight was a battle for service. I have flown many 12+ hour flights and never had any stress or issues whatsoever, this was a new and frankly terrible experience. I am wishing my flight home was not with this airline, as I am afraid of a repeat."

Pros: "not too full. included a meal even though it was a night 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Fare prices were inexpensive."
Cons: "1 out of the 2 meals did not taste like much. Meat was extremely chewy. 2 hour layover was not enough time to do customs and re-check-in through security to catch the domestic flight. Beijing airport employees barely knew where to direct you for reacquiring a new flight."
Cons: "I flew Alaska Airlines to San Jose and San Jose to Shanghai on air China. I was told by Alaska my baggage would be carried all the way through to Pudong airport. My baggage claim ticked showed that. When I got to PVG Pudong airport in Shanghai my baggage was not there they were not very helpful and difficult to understand. They told me they thought my baggage would come ther on another flight and gave me a form. By the next evening I had not heard from them. I emailed them again and I'm currently in Japan waiting to see if they will send me my luggage. Do not expect the kind of customer service in China as you would in the US or Japan.Shanghai airport is, at best, difficult to navigate...stay away from all the taxi solicitors."

Cons: "The seats.They felt a little claustrophobic and the headrest pushed out so far that my head was down to an uncomfortable level.I know they offer better prices by getting more people on board, but the small seat space and laughable incline made the long journey a bit more uncomfortable than it should have been."

Cons: "Boarding started late with no announcement of reason, and seats were not most comfortable I have ever used."

Pros: "I hate that u connect me with poi t to point airline that i ly allows for a one check in bag"

Pros: "Good legs room."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Food was mediocre. Drinks were mediocre. Seats were very uncomfortable. There was no English entertainment offered and they wouldn't let you use your phone on airplane mode. Air China's website doesn't work or do they have people answering the phones hey make you so it's impossible to check in ahead of time and select good seats."
Cons: "No snack, cracker, etc available for the long flight. Should notify us to carry some."
Pros: "The plane that WE EVENTUALLY got on was modern and nice. The entertainment system worked mostly (even though the selection was lacking)."
Cons: "Every flight was late. The staff was unprofessional and not at all helpful to my friend who was traveling with a broken leg. We needed a wheel chair for him so we could race to our connection in Beijing.... they wouldn't give us one and kept bickering amongst themselves, so he had to walk on his crutches all the way to the gate... only to find out they changed the gate because our plane was broken. Only they didn't tell us that, they just kept saying... "you can't board". I could go on and on but I am still too exhausted from the experience."
