Waited at the airport for 2 hours , no customer service. then called about 10 times , waited on the line another 1-2 hours on multiple calls. had to get a hotel for 2 nights , and they still want to charge me $800+ for another flight - super disappointed!"

Pros: "flight was smooth and on time. Crew was good (responsive to passenger needs)"

Cons: "Late fly"

Pros: "Comfortable and spacious seats and a blanket!"
Cons: "It was sad to fly for 6 hours and have not even a personal TV in front of me, There was only one per section. Furthermore, there were no sockets, or usb ports!. In long flights they should have better entertainment options and also sockets between seats. Also, their vegan food options are poor."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Avianca has no respect for passengers, they chance your flight without notice, lie, change your seat assignment without notice or train"

Pros: "I liked the time of the flight, that's about all."
Cons: "Avianca is one of the most dreadful international airlines imaginable. I could fill a book with the problems I've experienced. I fly often on many different airlines. This one needs new management; someone who actually cares."

Pros: "Atencion"

Cons: "delayed"

Cons: "They boarded the plane before the doors to the plane were open and so we were in the walkway freezing for at least 10 minutes, which I believe is illegal. Don't board the plane unless you can actually GET ON. The crew also was a special kind of rude."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Or initial flight was delayed by 2 hours. This meant we missed our connecting flight in Columbia. The airline booked us on a connection that meant a 10 hour layover in Columbia. No help no options nothing. Terrible service. There was another carrier leaving at a time that would have helped us but we weren't able to have this option."

Pros: "The airplane is confortable"
Cons: "When We proceed to check-in to checking our bags, we have an issue with the weight. So, to compensate, we remove some itens from our bag and put on our carry-on bags. The employees of the Avianca realizing that told me that I need to weight my Carry on bag. I never see something like that before, I ask to her if everybody need to weight the carry on bag, She told me yes, but I stay on Checking places for a long time and I don't see anybody weight theirs carry on bags. Basically the company want to get my Money forced me to pay for extra weight."

Cons: "Only a few very all movies to chose from on a 6 hour flight."

Pros: "When attempting to make the connection flight in Columbia, I was informed that I was being placed on standby due to overbooking by the airline. I was traveling with my service dog also. What is exactly am I supposed to do in Bogota, Columbia for an unexpected additional 24 hours? I had no money, and my credit card wouldn't work there. This was the worst airline experience in my life. Absolutely horrible. I will never travel with Avianca again. Avianca staff spoke hardly any English, so I couldn't hardly communicate with them either. Horrible."

Cons: "Almost one hour late to leave GRU. Flight Stats showed the delay more than one hour before the company say something. They boarded everyone late and kept us in the plane waiting for a conection flight that they already knew would arrive late."

Pros: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."
Cons: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."

Cons: "I waited 3 hours to do the check in and after that the fly got delayed twice."

Cons: "Pessoal despreparado, levei meu cachorro de suporte emocional, me colocaram em uma poltrona qualquer, apertada. Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao. O meu voo foi cancelado e me colocAram em outro horas depois, um transtorno, e para completar estou sem minhas malas, porque nao sabiam o que tinha acontecido. Estou em orlando sem nada! Nao recomendo!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food is terrible. The crew is not friendly."

Cons: "Eu estou arrasada, eu recebi meus emails todos em inglês, tive um grave problema familiar e me confundi com a data do voo, perdi o voo e a avianca queria me cobrar mais 2.000,00 para poder viajar no dia seguinte, estou péssima, perdi uma viagem de trabalho, onde está a humanidade de voces? Onde esta a honestidade? Cobrar penalidades? Ja não é penalidade suficiente eu ter perdido meu voo, ter passado por todo esse constrangimento? Mais dois mil reais só para remarcar meu voo? Capitalistas nojentos, voces contribuem para a piora do mundo!"

Pros: "Bag drop-off was quick and efficient for those checked-in online. Clean modern aircraft (A330) with decent space for economy class. Not spacious, but not cramped either. I felt comfortable for the entire six hour flight without leaving my seat. 2-4-2 seat layout in economy is pleasant. Food was satisfactory. From prior experience I know that the business class seats on Avianca's A330 are very comfortable with a lie flat 180 degree recline. Luggage delivery in Bogota is super-fast generally, although in this case it did not matter given the long immigration delay."
Cons: "Entertainment system took over 90 minutes to boot up properly, which also meant in-seat lighting was not working for this time. Immigration arrivals processing in Bogota took too long. Passengers were arriving without forms completed and immigration officers allowed them to fill them out at the immigration desks instead of sending them away. Queue control was unsatisfactory."

Pros: "Large Plane A330"

Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Pros: "Helpful crew. Arrived early."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Entertainment system didn't navigate very easily and choices seemed fairly limited on this (older?) plane."

Pros: "Very orderly."

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "The stupid boarding pricesd"

Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."

Pros: "My upgrade and breakfast were fabulous!"

Pros: "Excellent very good good"
Cons: "Good service good"

Cons: "turbulance"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."

Cons: "For some reason I had to get my seat at the gate and waste extra time for it"

Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."

Cons: "Long lines trying to resolve delayed flights. Ni weather issues reported."

Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"

Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."

Pros: "Boarding was good with plenty of room in overhead bin for my bag. Flight attendants were friendly and efficient and did a very good job. Flight was smooth and we even arrived a few minutes early. plenty of water and snacks offered during flight. Free television and Fox was a delight. N"
Cons: "Nothing this flight."

Cons: "Flight was late arriving to George Town due to mechanical trouble. when it did arrive and we got boarded there was another 15 minute delay for more mechanical trouble. There were no meals available for purchase on the plane as they had only stocked the flight for one leg of the trip and not the return leg. We were told at check in that we would have to pick our bags up in Detroit before getting on our connection to Toronto. In fact they were actually checked through. Due to the delays we missed our connection in Detroit. The Delta Agent was rude and did not want to give us a hotel voucher. She also said the next flight she could book us in was 24hrs later. She was unwilling to book us on an earlier flight with a different carrier. After we got her supervisor involved we were given a hotel and booked on an early flight the next day. I would not fly Delta again if I had the choice."

Pros: "Frequent updates by text and email. Pleasant and helpful agent in DTW . Hotel voucher given because of Gold level. Wyndham convenient"
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late, missed connection. No meal voucher in DTW"

Pros: "The service on the plane was very nice, the woman flight attendant was great. The drinks definitely helped get my through the deafening flight."
Cons: "I was not aware of how loud the last row on the plane would be, for two hours we had to listen to the roar of a jet engine, it would be nice if there was ear plugs we could be provided for this. Or if we were made aware of this before the flight started."

Cons: "Leg room was awful, and flights left late for no reason."

Pros: "Nice seats...nice crew"
Cons: "almost 4 hour delay in Travetse City...some of it weather-related. But: 1.)sat on runway for OVER AN HOUR! While they tried to figure out how to de-ice the plane..first time this winter! 2) had to de-plane in Detroit via steep metal staircase...then climb equally steep staircase to enter jet bridge! 3) this caused me to miss my flight to Buffalo...rerouted through LaGuardia 4) when I went to reschedule no one was at the flight help center...phone guy I talked to didn't seem to have a clue what he was talking about! 5) when someone finally showed up at help center, I found out that at noon on Sunday, I could not get into buffalo until ten the next morning...via Atlanta! I ended up flying into Rochester!"

Pros: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "There was no entertainment and the flight served a small snack and drinks due to the shortness of the flight. So the marks in those two areas reflect more the shortness of the flight than Delta services. I liked the pre-flight tickets and the timeliness of all four flights."
Cons: "The plane was a little small."

Pros: "I like the service"
Cons: "The plane landed with very Chwica I of aviation lovers"

Cons: "The woman working the desk at the gate was rude and acted as though it was an inconvenience to help. I needed a seat assignment for this flight as well as the flight from Detroit to Elmira . She first snapped that the seat assignments were on a television screen overhead then told just to use the seat request form to board and it would print a seat assignment . When I tried to explain I needed an assignment for the next flight also she again snapped st me saying do you have an hour or more. I responded "no only 40 minutes "at which time she asked my name and printed me a boarding pass for that flight. From the time she finally asked my name and printed the boarding pass it took about 10 seconds so I'm not sure what was so inconvenient . She never smiled once and gave no response to my thank you . There were no other passengers behind me so she was not busy. I always fly Delta and have always found their staff to be helpful and polite."

Pros: "On time. Great price. Great service"

Pros: "The flight was uneventful."

Pros: "The tv/movies selection was great. The plane was generally clean and staff friendly. Nothing was spectacular on this flight while nothing was a miss."

Pros: "Flew standby and got an aisle seat!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight to Detroit from JFK was delayed by more than 3 hours. I missed my connecting from Detroit to Fort Wayne. Delta's help desk were unfriendly and they didn't want to help.

Cons: "Poor organisation when boarding, most uncomfortable seats. Felt like a torture device."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The disappointing issues were with the airport process."

Pros: "The business class amenities were amazing. Food was great and service was great."

Cons: "They are changing their procedures and there was a bottle neck to do the check in. In previous years it was ok, this time it was terrible."

I don't understand why they couldn't let me through or hold for me. It ruin my ground transportation reservation which I had to reschedule. The whole thing was frustrating and cost me more money that what i thought i was saving."

Pros: "Nice service"

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."

Pros: "Overall trip was ok"

Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t let me board"
Cons: "The fact they sell you a flight with a connection in Mexico City with only an hour to transfer is ridiculous. Being that this is mexico’s airline they must know it’s a literal impossibility to make that connection. When you arrive they automatically shuttle you into an area to rebook you almost like it’s expected. Then you wait for 8 hrs in a crowded ghetto airport waiting to get on the next flight. When you speak to customer service they talk to you like your a dummy."

Cons: "Delayed flight, customer service was hard to work with."

Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Every AM flight I've taken has taken off and landed with delay. We sit on tarmac or stand at the gate with no announcements from crew, captain, or gate attendants. Rude and inattentive attendants (asked three times for Screen to be refreshed as it didn't work) and each time request ignored. Inedible food, old planes. Yuck."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding took too long. People put personal items in the compartments so that made no room for everyyto put their carry on in the plaine."

Cons: "They had a problem with media system, so this way we cannot see any movies"

Pros: "They seemed to know what they were doing there."
Cons: "Our only checked bag didn't come until 2 days later. We had 3 bottles of tequila in that bag and the 2 high end bottles were stolen. We will never fly AeroMéxico again, and to top it off the last flight was on Delta. It's a joke that they even partnered up with AeroMéxico. I'm not happy that Kayak would even suggest this airline. Even though we are fluent in Spanish it didn't matter because the employees didn't know what they were doing anyways."

Pros: "The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good considering it was airplane food. They came around and gave drink refills."
Cons: "The plane left almost an hour late, when previously it has said it was running on schedule. The seats are cramped, barely any leg room to get comfortable in."

Cons: "We fly in 777 plane, but the crew member already occupied all of my overhead baggage space. I need to move two seat back for my bag. I am already the first passenger on board of the plane. That also cost the other passenger think I occupied their baggage space and be not too friendly with me during the trip. The notice board in the airport is confuse, we know the gate and the depart time, but no one show up until 120 min before the plane depart. And finally the plane delay and no information show the plane will delay for how long. Bad information in the counter My handle of the sit is broken I have photo to proof if you would need it, I save it with me. The lighting system in the plane is very stupid or may be the crew don't know how to operate, every time they just turn on all the light no matter we are sleep or not! This is a red eye flight passenger should have a choice to not get disturb, when the light on I need to turn it off every time! And the next passenger don't really know how to turn the light off that always on during the flight! Super bad flying experience. Not comfortable at all. Can't sleep much!"

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"
Cons: "No veg option in food menu"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My bags were left at origin airport (SFO), now I have 2 kids in cancun that can't go to the pool because we have no clothes, I will need to figure out tomorrow what to do. Not happy right now!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "For starters, the air conditioning either wasn't working or was super slow making the flight uncomfortably hot. This is the second flight on this trip where a flight has been delayed and there is just TOO much confusion. You guys don't have enough employees guiding us to the right direction. Which caused me to miss my flight. Making me spend an awful night over night at the airport, missing work, and overall just an INCONVENIENCE. Delayed flights seem to be a common thing with your airline son ADD MORE STAFF! So ridiculous, the staff in Mexico City are useless at helping people out!!! I'm not one to complain but this was so unprofessional!"

Cons: "Old airplane"

Cons: "30 minutes late"

Pros: "Hello, I checked in a dog in Detroit, The crew was great once they found out they can accept a dog. At first they were saying no because of partner with delta. I explain I booked the dog already and give all my required documents. Once in Mexico the documents were given to the authorities and when the crew in Detroit made copies they kept the originals and gave me the copies and they made me pay 1800 pesos for a vet to come and sign the paper.. I spoke to aeromexico in Mexico City and they said they are sorry but nothing can be done... This cause me my traveling money and 3 hours of very stressful times for me and my dog who had to stay in the box the whole time. Robin Martin"

Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"

Pros: "All was great - we even arrived early."
Cons: "Not even a cracker"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing bad on this particular flight but im traumatized from my auckland to sydney flight"

Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."

Pros: "I would like to include these miles to accumulate them. I flight with Latam to Río de Janeiro renta y. How can I get them?"

Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"

Cons: "Paying extra for seats"

Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"

Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."
Cons: "Checking a single bag costs $25 each way, which is irritating when they beg to check all the carry-ons at the gate."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for two hours!"

Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."

Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."

Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."

Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."

Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"

Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"

Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Could not get voarding pass although an AA plane the ticket as tgey called it was co partner with LATAM, so American would not talk to me and LATAM could not help either. Eventhough I was talking directly in the LATAM lounge with a representative. Ridiculous could not obtain a seat assignment until I arrived in Bogota, there I found out that the flight was overbooked and ended up having the last of a center seat."

Pros: "Flight cancelled. Got routed through Aviancs."
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."

Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"

Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."

Pros: "QUE SEA PUNTUAL"

Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"

Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"

Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "The flight was late, i can not to watch the movie, the screen did not work sometimes. Furios stewardess."

Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."

Pros: "El servicio al cliente"

Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Delay, seats very uncomfortable"

Pros: "TV movies"
Cons: "More popular movies"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "My girlfriend’s Tv stopped to work in the beginning of the flight."

Pros: "hilarious crew and they were very helpful"
Cons: "seating was so uncomfortable and i'm petite/slim. the bathroom wreaked and the toilet seat would not stand up alone"

Pros: "My flight was canceled"

Pros: "Tre crew was fantastic"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "New "signature" business class is smaller than the old pod, but very functional layout."
Cons: "Food created by Chef Hawksworth is mediocre at best."

Pros: "Flight delayed and changing of gates"
Cons: "To far from one gate to the other, you need a shuttle"

Pros: "When I got sick, staff were friendly, helpful and soothing until the arrival of the ambulance. They made me feel much better during a very stressful situation."

Pros: "Exiting the plane and terminating my transaction."
Cons: "Delayed. Missed layover. Lost luggage. Poor communication. Agents had attitudes."

Pros: "Friendly crew, onboard food was fairly decent and an okay price."
Cons: "Even a “preferred” seat on Rouge (27E, bulkhead on B767-300ER) has no legroom. This, combined with a short and low seat cushion means a dead butt. I’m only 5’11” too."

Pros: "Seat selection."
Cons: "The meals didn't taste that great."

Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."

Pros: "Well designed comfortable sleeping Pods"

Pros: "terrific video entertainment, excellent and affordable food choices"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late!"

Pros: "Espaço para as pernas na classe econômica foi suficiente para mim, a tripulação foi cordial, o avião era novo à parte de entretenimento foi boa."
Cons: "Quando embarcamos, quase todos os espaços para as malas já estavam ocupados, o espaço lateral das poltronas era muito apertado, a reclinação era péssima, praticamente inexistente. Quando decolamos, começou a cair água na nossa cabeça. O funcionário responsável disse que era do ar condicionado e era normal. A comida era ruim, sem gosto e com acompanhamentos que não combinavam, por exemplo no meu caso era frango com uma salada de vagens e pepino. Fora o horário das refeições, quase não era oferecido bebidas em um voo de 10 horas."

Pros: "Plane was on time and manned appropriately with a single crew member. Gate checked bag was handled with care."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Quick boarding, service was excellent and quick."
Cons: "Don't like the Eouge entertainment system. Fortunately there was iPad rental.....at a price."

Pros: "Both my first and connecting flights were delayed despite excellent weather. No explanation was offered."

Pros: "Incredible plane!!"
Cons: "Bathrooms and seats need to be longer!"

Cons: "Very rude air crew who treats you as a bus passenger, does not completely listen to your requests, on business class. I also had my return connection flight cancelled and moved 6 hours ahead of the original one, which made me just wait that long at the airport."

Cons: "Bag damaged. No one to report damage to"

Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."

Pros: "Drop off at the counter was fast and easy on the upper level departure entrance. From my drop off at 9:00 am, I made it thru baggage check-in, passing thru passport control, passing thru security and into the gate duty free area in 25 mins! Impressive experience."
Cons: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after we already were sitting in the plane for 1.5 hour."

Pros: "Crew and Confort"

Cons: "The last leg of our entire trip, and it was late. We left about 1.5 hours late and they had trouble getting the gate to the plane when we landed. A long trip home was made even longer. I was very surprised that there were so many issues with timeliness on AC flights. In our outbound to Athens, two of the three flights left late, and they had to rebook part of our trip to accommodate. And the return trip was more of the same. I expected AC to be world-class and it was more like a regional airline in terms of performance."

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late after we already had a 5 hour lay-over. Waiting area quite small for so many flights to US .Felt like the ugly step-sisters."

Pros: "The flight was long, but fine. Meals were very good."
Cons: "I had to buy a one-way ticket. It was $900. + It would have been great to be upgraded for that price!"

Pros: "always has extra seats available."
Cons: "A lot of families with kids, dirty lavatory due to low passenger profile. Rude flight attendant while having seated before take off. Dirty Boarding area. Poor food quality."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. They lost my baggage. TV in my seat didn't work and they didn't do anything about it."

Cons: "Very rude staff, my flight from Dublin was delayed for three hours on the runway why they fix the leak for the restrooms. Once we landed I had to clear customs in Canada and get to the new flight. They told me when I finally had to make through the airport and through customs that I need to manage my time better and understand and give myself plenty of time to make the flight.. REALLY??? It wasn't my fault that their crappy plane wasn't working right wasn't my fault we were delayed but I need to manage my time better I think they fell and bumped their head!!"

Cons: "I will never fly Air Canada between Detroit and Toronto again. Both ways the crew looked exhausted and like they were rather be anyplace but working our flight. Both times they took our carry ons without giving us a choice. For our flight out this was a stressful nuisance because we had to catch a connecting overseas flight. This involved my husband and son going to baggage claim and then having to go back through customs and TSA. The whole point of carry ons is to avoid this. Luckily we didn't miss our international flight but not a good way to begin a trip of a lifetime. Flight was completely uncomfortable and it seemed like no one cared. Should have driven"

Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "The gate area was horribly crowded, extremely chaotic and hot."

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Avoidable delays caused a late departure from Toronto, then we sat on tarmac waiting for a gate in Dublin. Eventually had to debark into the tarmac and walk in. Delays caused us to miss our next flight to Munich."

Pros: "flight attendant seemed very kind. I sooo appreciated that the landing was so incredibly smooth. I get motion sick sometimes so that was very nice."
Cons: "delayed 30 minutes waiting for the catering truck. Also, it was FREEZING in that plane, I thought my ankles were going to fall off."

Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Late. Again. Each of my flights with Air Canada has been late."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The process through Heathrow was easy and efficient. Boarding was fairly quick for an international, large flight. The staff were always accommodating and friendly. I was comfortable in the seat, I am a small person but I did notice that the seat was significantly larger than other flights I have been on, and appreciated the entertainment, which had a great selection of movies."
Cons: "The meal served was very nice. The snack served after was a spicy chicken wrap and I really must question the wisdom of serving anything spicy in an enclosed environment with a limited number of toilets."

Cons: "Cancelled my flight. I have zero faith in Air Canada."

Cons: "The rest room did not work"

Pros: "A nice short flight: there isn't much to say here, but the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crewman seemed somewhat pushy. Perhaps a recalcitrant passenger put him in a bad mood."

Cons: "Delays!"

Pros: "As a 6'5" guy, I was worried about spending ten hours on a plane. Air Canada made the flight enjoyable with comfortable seats (even in the economy class) and high quality flight attendants."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, friendly crew, pillow and blanket both serviceable. Food was a little better than I expected for economy."
Cons: "Baggage handling ripped handle clean off new suitcase, both ends. Delays in departures from Dublin led to us using stairs off of plane on tarmac. Entertainment mostly dependent on app you can't download on plane if you're using wi-fi."

Pros: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."

Pros: "everything was as I expected"

Pros: "Nice crew,moving all the time, food was good."
Cons: "A little bit colder than I expected."

Pros: "The flight on its own was just fine."
Cons: "We were delayed about five hours because of a mechanical issue, resulting in a plane change. Although it was apparent they knew about this well in advance, we were not told ahead of time. We could have spent way less time in the airport. The staff were all very friendly, but when it came to compensation we were only given a $10 meal voucher near the end of our five hour wait. Most people had eaten by then, so it felt like it was the very least they could do to make up for the inconvenience."

Cons: "Want a refund"
