2 hours late ... that sums it up
the only real issue was baggage claim. we waited 45 minutes for our bags to arrive, but they did arrive, which was good.
The charging port didn't work. And bathroom was dirty
They didn’t enforce the Canadian government laws on face mask requirements for flights to Canada (applies to domestic and foreign or international airlines).
Cons: "More drinks, snacks"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could"
Cons: "Flight was super delayed with no explanation"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "I got charged for bags from Fort Lauderdale to Toronto than Toronto to Halifax"
Cons: "My dad didn’t get on the plane because the previous one was late"
Cons: "Not enough room for everyone’s carry ons even though websites clearly state the allowances. very small plane. No snacka offered on almost 3.5 hour flight only drinks."
Pros: "Riws nuch too close together. There should be a notice in the boarding area for passengers to download app so they can access on board movies. Or even better this should be included with ticket."
Pros: "The seats were large with lots of legroom even in regular economy"
Cons: "The departure was delayed 75 minutes. Boards at the airport were not updated quickly. My entertainment system did not work but everyone else's did. The cabin crew wasn't very friendly"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with enough room for an average person. I like the Embraer 190."
Cons: "Unspecified maintenance issue seemed to manufactured to allow the gate crew to get off the hook for shortfalls."
Pros: "Not much. Crew was good but that is about it."
Cons: "Tight spaces packed in like sardines. FAA seriously needs to look at how these airlines pack us into these seats. Can barely sit in the set, no room to stretch legs, tray table hits my stomach, and I don't even have a big belly. When the guy in front reclines, cannot even get out of my seat. Chaotic boarding process without any order or instructions or announcements, poor food and entertainment."
Pros: "Airport security was great and the airport pane was clean with a great crew!"
Cons: "Didn’t depart on schedule and then had to wait in Calgary to depart as the gate wasn’t available"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and tight. Leg room is not existent."
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "We paid extra for bulkhead seats at the front of economy. One of the stewards working in business class repeatedly came to get something out if the compartment over my head. The noise woke me up over and over. I finally asked him what he was getting and he told me it was his lunch! Irritating."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Didn't serve any free snacks or food."
Pros: "it was a long flight, not interrupted by too many announcements"
Cons: "boarding was problematic. I paid extra for a seat closer to the front yet had to store carry on in the rear of the plane. when asking the flight personnel for assistance regarding the matter, he promptly gave me a glare and turned away totally ignoring me. In waiting until everyone had exited the plane before being able to retrieve my bag, it completely defeated the purpose of the extra expenditure. perhaps boarding the rear of the plane first. regardless, my biggest concern was I felt like the flight attendant should have responded but elected to snub me. amazingly I lived to talk about it :-)"
Pros: "The food was phenomenal for airplane food, the best I've had in 100s of flights! The flight was half empty, so taking over 3 seats to lie down was nice :) Very efficient boarding process at the Montreal airport, with updated wait times and fast moving line."
Pros: "I do not intend to use Kayak again because it is extremely difficult if not impossible to make sets reservations even though I am in Executive class."
Pros: "Very comfortable and clean aircraft. Friendly crew. Seats at the front of Economy had excellent legroom. Helpful flight announcements from the captain."
Cons: "Air Canada has only one gate at Houston, which appears to be in constant use, at least in the early afternoon. If one flight is delayed in departure, it causes a backup with other flights."
Pros: "Not great seating on this smaller plane for business class. Staff was good. Didn't eat so don't know how the food was."
Cons: "Business class seats were small. No difference from economy"
Pros: "Each had own entertainment screen per passenger"
Cons: "My luggage was left in Houston and that was very inconvenience. And it took a day and a half before it came."
Pros: "Was not impressed with this flight. Honestly this experience will make me reconsider booking with AC in the future."
Cons: "Check in at Houston is terrible. Air Canada made us transfer our own luggage between flights causing us to almost miss our flight. This should have been indicated when booking the flight, we would have purchased a different flight. When we got on the flight, overhead bin was too small for my husbands carry on and a flight attendant whisked his bag away before we could ask where she was going. She came back without the bag and we asked where she had taken it- she had checked it without asking us if this would be ok. The bag was full of valuable breakables as well as our cash and cards. We asked if we could get the bag at the gate and she said it would come out on the carousel. So we spent 3 hours completely stressed out. Drinks were only served once the entire flight, more water should have been offered. When we got off the plane one of our bags had gone missing. We had to wait 2 days to have it delivered. It was delivered at 4am in the morning. Overall compared to the previous United flight, Air Canada has lots of room for improvement."
Cons: "The temperature control system was broken so the cabin temperature was upwards of 90F for the entire flight. The flight crew wouldn't acknowledge the issue until we had landed."
Pros: "The flight attendant Kaldon was amazing. He was friendly, professional, and you could tell he loved his job. He truly made the short flight something special."
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Pros: "The new flight was direct and with Lufthansa to my final destination."
Cons: "Air Canada overbooked their Frankfurt to Montreal flight, and they did bot have any seats for me on that plane although I booked 3 months in advance."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food when they got to back row and we were starving. No apology and no alternate offers. Also my two yr old boy was about to fall asleep and every time the crew member switched on their reading light and walked away. I had to turn them off. Worst experience on an Air Canada flight."
Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "It is the first international flight that do not have any television screens, music stations or any entertainment on board. Alcoholic beverages are not free! We sat in seats that cannot recline - for the whole flight from Barcelona to Toronto. Cabin crew did not keep the cabin clean. Although we flew Air Canada from Barcelona to Toronto and have not left the inside of the airport, we had to go through customs again and almost missed our flight to Atlanta due to that. Airport officials were rude; some of the crew members treated us with disrespect and not approachable. It is the worst international flight ever - even worse than some third world carriers that I used before."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, friendly crew, everything was clean"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work for me or my wife (and a few others that I could see from looking around) even after they tried to reset/restart the monitors three different times..."
Cons: "I had to pay for Internet despite being a Superelite customer (top Tier flyer on their program). The service was expensive and slow so I only used 30 minutes for $4. Having curtailed my work, I looked for news feeds and Rio Olympic coverage. There was neither. It spoilt an otherwise great experience"
Cons: "Very bad experience, first flight was delayed then lost my luggage. All my cloths, Medicine and cosmetics in the bag. They spoiled my trip"
Pros: "Same. I was well taken care of despite the weather delay. Crew was friendly but more stressed and a little slow. Seats were comfortable and there was more leg room than normal."
Cons: "Not enough time with the lights off so we could sleep easier during the long flight."
Pros: "Seat had decent leg room, but had to pay an additional $60+ dollars for it."
Cons: "Paying for food on a flight that's over 5 hours is very poor form. Food was of very poor quality. Beverage service came around once early on and then not again until almost landing. Asked for another beverage about half way through the flight and it never came. Plane was dirty."
Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."
Pros: "Boarding process was orderly."
Cons: "Too crowded for my height of 6'1'in. Carry on luggage very difficult to accommodate."
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to rush to connecting flight with only 25 min to spare from Toronto to tel aviv... Baggage is missing as well"
Pros: "The plane was a large one so it makes my trip comfortable with my 2 years and 2 months baby"
Cons: "it seems to be expensive to pay full ticket price for a 2 years and 2 months baby in addition to 1 small bag for the 2 of us."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive when I did. I had to spend several hundred dollars on cloths for me and my niece so that we had what we needed for the two days it took to get our bags."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get an aisle seat and have a decent amount of room. The food wasnt bad and there were plenty of bathrooms available on the plane."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight due to the flight to Toronto being delayed for some reason. No other flights were available to get me to my final destination for 24 hours and the gate team doesnt report to the gate until 20 minutes til boarding time. Not much in the way of customer assistance. Zero movies available and no wifi on the planes make for a long trip to Europe from N. America."
Pros: "Wheelchair service arrived very late yet the flight attendants and the Captain remained with me until the wheelchair arrived. Outstanding attention and care for passengers."
Cons: "I needed Some help with my bag for the overhead bin and the flight attendant didn't help me properly and they said it was too heavy and another got angry and said we will charge you for this next time . If they had helped me with the bag it would not have needed to be checked in and there was certainly no need to be rude about it"
Pros: "On time both on departure and return trips."
Cons: "Crew could have come round looking for disposals sooner rather than at the end. No one came by to check if seat belts were fastened properly."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Pros: "NOTHING AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SERVICE"
Pros: "Skilled pilot dealt with rough weather very well."
Cons: "if you have ever flown on a low cost airline like Ryanair or Easyjet act like you are on that flight. Bring snacks and headphones."
Cons: "Airplane temperature was freezing"
Cons: "Wifi only worked for a half hour, we paid extra to bring carry on bag, and the're was no space in the plane, had to send it in the cargo."
Pros: "Crew was very nice!!"
Cons: "Space on seat not comfortable for tall people"
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane was nice."
Cons: "No charger at seat."
Pros: "It was a good flight- friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "The fight was fine. however on the flight to Houston they loaded one of my suitcases onto another flight. It arrived to late for me to get it before the ship left. Their customer service is horrible!!! They continually lied about where my luggage was. Never again!!!!!"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Wasn't expecting to have to run all the entertainment through my mobile device. I'd that's what you're gonna do, we're should get free wi-fi"
Pros: "The greeting and smiles I received from the crew members as I was boarding. The plane had entertainment and alcoholic beverages."
Cons: "The only thing I can complain about is the weather causing the aircraft to shake"
Cons: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"
Cons: "They skipped me for drinks"
Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "Everything was fine and normal except the crew."
Cons: "My flight was a later one in the evening but all the crew showed was that they were ready to go home."
Cons: "Zero entertainment. Too cramped"
Cons: "My email is not linked to my phone, so I got no warning notices of two gate changes waiting for my connecting flight home. I waited at the original gate (C39) from arrival time (2:30 pm) til boarding time (5:40 pm). When I saw no change to my destination, I checked the United App to find that the gate had been changed C33). Rushing to C33 I found another flight boarding at that location with one United Representative who could not stop to answer questions. Seeing two unoccupied Representatives at the next gate (C32), I asked if they could help me with the confusion, they said I should check with gate C33 - which I told them that she was too busy with other passengers. I searched for a Departure Board and discovered that gate C33 was still the gate, but "aircraft maintenance" had delayed the flight until after 8:20. After having to check my carry-on because of lack of space in the overheads, my departure from the airport was further delayed another 30 minutes. Upon returning home and checking my email, I found notifications of two different gate changes (C33 & C44). Announcements should have been made at both gate C39 about the changing of the gate and at C33 explaining the problem. The captain's lame excuse about air conditioning and Phoenix's hot weather was lame to say the least."
Cons: "No assistance at all for handicap person, try to ask for help and was told grab a wheelchair and have your family push you or wait till 530 which my flight would be boardiat that time."
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"
Cons: "Another passenger was extremely rude to me. Causing me to have to move seats mid flight. Crew did not try to resolve the issue with the man behind me and put me in a worse seat. Horrible."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, attendants were great."
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my tiny seat. They are small and awful."
Cons: "Short flight, so no food or entertainment."
Pros: "Nice trip!"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight and they were at the opposite ends of airport so had to run to catch this flight!"
Pros: "Plane size"
Cons: "Pilot driving way to fast"
Cons: "Never made it and had to go yet to another desk because it was a united flight this was the worst i have ever experienced"
Cons: "The food options are poor at best and it's really sad that they don't offer anything for free. My ticket wasn't cheap so I can't imagine they're saving me money on my ticket by not offering better food on that long of a flight."
Pros: "Ordered the Protein Box, it was ok.. crew members nice."
Cons: "The Smell on the flight was unacceptable, I was sitting about a couple rows across the middle bathroom, and it smelled horrible, I had never had an experience like this on any other flight, I fly United many times a year, and this had me really uncomfortable for almost 5 hours, since the flight was delayed almost 1.5 hours while we sat onboard the aircraft at the gate, that had me miss dinner plans too in San Francisco as well. I really hope they can fix that, For the good of the passengers, felt like I was going to be nauseous all the time, and I'm really not someone that complains or takes time to review badly."
Pros: "Best united flight I've been on in a very long time!"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact I was unable to reschedule my flight due to medical reasons. The ticket I purchased was nonrefundable. I wasn't asking for a refund, I was asking to reschedule due to medical reasons of which I have a letter from my Cardiologist as proof of my condition. I saw my Cardiologist Baxter D. Montgomery, M.D. phone: 713.599.1144 on June 9th and was treated for uncontrolled Blood Pressure. I was advised to reschedule my flight after a follow-up appointment on June 23rd. On June 10th I Called United to reschedule my June 11th flight and was referred to Lowestfare.com at 800.678.0998. I spoke to Albert and explained my situation and was told that I couldn't reschedule. I asked to speak to a manager and spoke to Jane who only confirmed that I couldn't reschedule and nothing could be done. Not allowing customers with verifiable medical excuses to reschedule their flight is a shameful business practice."
Pros: "Friendly staff. More leg room on United express"
Cons: "Snack options not good. Wi-Fi connection not good for United app and the free movies didn't work."
Pros: "Pilot communication was great"
Cons: "Gate and customer service agents are not helpful and not on the same page."
Cons: "Flight attendant was really not very nice at all. I felt like I was in trouble for even taking the flight. 'Move your feet. Bags have to be moved under seat. I need to see your seat belts.' She was curt, unfriendly & really made me upset with her bad attitude. Maybe she was having a bad day but I paid good hard earned money for my trip. I at least deserved courteousy & mutual respect."
Pros: "The flight attendant was one of the best ever - super sweet, funny, and accomodating. Also, the pilot nailed a super sweet landing at the end."
Cons: "Everything else. The only redeeming feature of the flight experience was the great flight attendant onboard and the fact that we actually landed at my destination. The coffee maker onboard had been broken for a long time and the airline couldn't be bothered to fix it. If I were the flight crew, I would have gone on strike. No leg (or arm) room on the express jet really punctuated a 34 hour itinerary with a sour note. I could barely walk off the plane in the end. Less comfortable than a cheap rental truck for the same amount of time. I likely won't fly again with United. I'd almost rather walk next time to be completely honest. At least it would be healthier!"
Cons: "Thr boarding process was a mess, a lot of people didn't even have seats assigned."
Pros: "I actually got bumped from this flight to one that went directly to my final destination of San Fransisco. What a great experience!"
Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"
Cons: "They only had enough to food for the front of the plane , me and everyone in back was left hungry, I have never been so disrespected"
Pros: "It was awesome, I could travel on Gold gropu for a chrap pice! Simply great"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after being delayed for over 2 hours for mechanical issues. Gate agent was not overwhelmingly helpful or understanding to people's frustrations during the delay and didn't go out of her way to try to help. Customer Service was helpful and able to rebook and provide overnight hotel accommodations, but it was a very slow process that clearly frustrated some customers even more. Clearly not anyone's fault, but still frustrating and not a great flying experience."
Cons: "I cannot boo up to wifi so was unable to enjoy any entertainment."
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Pros: "Easy flight , no fuss no muss . Great snacks ."
Cons: "More seating area in the airport near the gate , flight itself was great ."
Pros: "The only thing I have to say that is positive is that it was relatively easy to change my flight date and time in the United app once my original flight had been cancelled. The app was the only thing that helped me understand what was going on during the constant time and gait changes throughout the day."
Cons: "This airline is terrible. First we were told that the flight would be delayed 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were supposed to leave at 2139 from IAH to PHX. They changed the departure to 2309 due to "mechanical failure" of one of the aircrafts. We were told a plane was coming and that we were just waiting for another flight to Albuquerque that was delayed before us to leave the gait. Long after that first delayed flight left passengers for PHX were delayed 3 more times which ended in the final tenative departure time being 0145. We were told at 0115 to sit tight and wait because the plane was now here but the crew was still in route. Shortly after this promise, the crew showed up and everything seemed to be ready for us to board. Another 30 minutes went by and they announced that the flight was cancelled. United airlines had used up over 4 hours of changing gaits and times only to end up cancelling the entire flight. They did not offer any explanation for this nor were they the least sympathetic to the travelers who have all paid to be on that flight. The customer service was disgraceful and did not offer any type of help on reimbursement, hotel, cabs, or compensation for this."
Pros: "It was good to be in Houston for a brief moment!!"
Pros: "Crew were awesome, helpful when filling out documents for customs. it was nice to be on a less crowded plane for once."
Cons: "The plane advertized itself as having wifi, which didn't work once airborne. Why offer it if it doesn't work? Also, the plane looked like it was in rough shape, not very reassuring."
Cons: "The service was good, and the food tasty, but not very much. Also, the guy next to me couldn't sit still, but that is not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "Again friendly"
Cons: "Rough flight and technical problems then had to wait another 45 mins on runway to get to the door"
Cons: "The KAYAK APP sucks i selected annother date And time And missed the flight as a no show. I selected the date for next thursday And the APP moved it And booked it for the same day. impossible to take it was Erich And not the date i wanted. I reeboked it in UNITED direct payed 75 USD and fixed kayak mistake. Never use this sh...t again"
