Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seat back screens."
Cons: "Completely full flight. Rough landing."
Cons: "Terminal g18 is in the worst possible place. It is right smack in the middle of a food kiosk and restuarants with the ipad tables. You can't hear any announcements and boarding is just a cluster."
Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."
Cons: "6 hours late. Unacceptable."
Cons: "A 7+ hour delay!"
Pros: "The people was relaxed and the flight attendant was polite and professional.. everything was on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all great service"
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "Everything went as smoothly as possible. Not a hiccup. Great price, great flight, great experience!"
Pros: "I love flying Delta. Non stop flights from DTW to MCO and FLL. The crew are so courteous. Love the new uniforms also."
Cons: "Both Virgin plans needed a deep cleaning."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Pros: "Very nice and courteous crew."
Cons: "Lady at the gate was a bit standoff Ish and the delays were an annoyance."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight! Great movies, good food and I was comfortable. Nothing like First Class."
Pros: "The lady at the ticket inter helped me em get eat I wanted!"
Cons: "Crew was pretty short with everyone and not Delta’s best - not sure what the story was. Gate staff were allowing people to cut queue lines left and right - why even have the zones lined up if not going to enforce?"
Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."
Pros: "I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!"
Pros: "Every thing good"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
Pros: "The in flight movie and fast boarding"
Cons: "Couldn't get a receipt for baggage fee"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not function at all during the flight"
Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."
Pros: "I like that Delta is efficient and the service is consistent. I pick Delta because I know what I’m going to get . I like that I can choose the entertainment I want and that everything is at my fingertips including flight info, food and beverage options, etc. it’s relatively comfortable but it’s not near the level of Virgin America or JetBlue."
Cons: "I’m not sure if it is due to LAX construction but it is chaotic at the airport. It is super confusing where you need to go, drop bags, etc. the weird part is Check in was in terminal 3 and gate at terminal 2. That is a long walk back and forth. There is probably a more efficient way of doing this. Besides that, they need to do a better job communicating that seats are changing and not Reggy before boarding. Though I can understand it can get crazy because people will panic but it’s not great heading up to enter in not knowing if you are sitting in window when you picked it for a reason. Otherwise, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "My toddler daughter became ill before departure and the crew was awful. They failed to provide me with hardly anything besides 2 blankets and a few remoistened hand wipes to clean up vomit and was very rude when I asked to change seats, even though there were at least 8 other seats open on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process doesn't make sense. My seat assignment was changed for no reason, and I didn't have a say in it. I was put further back on the plane. Not happy about that."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Flight was smooth. Boarding process was good. On time."
Cons: "Plane was old. Not that comfortable. No entertainment on flight. Unable to connect to wifi. Snack options were not that good."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Cons: "Staff not attentive to customer needs. I asked for a blanket and the stewardess never came back to me."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and it was still very cramped"
Pros: "Amazing experience thank you Delta"
Pros: "Trip and flight crew excellent!"
Cons: "I understand that they couldn't deliver luggage during lightening, but my luggage and clothes were soaked!"
Pros: "Short comfortable flight.. good entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Everything was good with this flight.."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Always a delay with Delta"
Cons: "I felt singled out by the gate agents for this leg of the flight. The gate agent called me out twice - once just to check if my carry on fit into the sample size container. Then she did it again when we were boarding. I know she knew she'd already asked me before. Because afterwards, she tried to play it off, laughing and saying "I'd already asked you, didn't it". My carry on fit with ease. There were people with larger suitcases all around me but she continuously singled me out."
Pros: "I had a middle row seat for this 3 hour 50 minute red eye flight. The plane was quite new. There was plenty of storage space in the bins above the seats. My seat was very comfortable. It reclined a lot. The leg room was more than I needed and I am 6' tall. The individual TV monitor was great. Delta made a long flight quite bearable!"
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Cons: "Seat(19c) is in a position that due to its design causes it to be bumped into continously throughout the flight... I lost track of the amount of times I got jostled by passengers and crew. May want to rethink the use of that seat. They ran out of food. Had to wait over 30 min on the tarmac before being able to deplane."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Moron putting the seat back in front of me"
Pros: "Going to NY the boarding zones changed by the gate so you could see your time for boarding."
Cons: "Going back to Orlando the boarding zone did not change from 1 and I was the last person boarding. I am not a frequent flier so it was confusing to me."
Pros: "I liked how fluid and easy the landing was. And I especially liked how we arrived to Orlando in less than the allotted time which was three hours."
Cons: "Did not like how there were not many options for eating, but loved the flight overall."
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"
Pros: "very nice airplane"
Pros: "Flight was very good. We look at t.v. and watch movies to make the flight short."
Cons: "I didn't like when I call and ask about the delayed when told that they were waiting on equipment, then when we get to the airport was told that the flight was a international flight that was running late. The Lies!!!!"
Pros: "Easy airport to deal with Porter service is Awesome Like the new lounge"
Cons: "I wish they would email me a link to get my lelectronic boardong pss"
Pros: "My flight was delayed due to bad weather but they offered complimentary drink service at the airport and I really appreciated it. I would like to fly with Porter Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and the terminal in Toronto was nice. The food and drink service was more than I expected, and the checkin agents and terminal staff before security were helpful."
Cons: "My flight arriving into Toronto was cancelled and then my rebooked flight was delayed. While checkin staff were polite, gate staff were not overly helpful and no food vouchers were offered for rebooked passengers. On my return from YTZ to EWR, I received 6 delays to my flight but staff in the airport provided no information regarding the cause of the delay and did not provide updates on the flight in a timely manner. By the time my flight was delayed a 5th time, I was stuck in the terminal. Free drinks and snacks were available, but I had to pay for a sandwich during my 3 hour wait. I have received only a C$100 travel voucher. Needless to say I won't be using it."
Cons: "The flights were cancelled after everyone was already waiting for a long time for their delayed flights. Then the rebooking process took way too long after the staff at the airport said it would take 20 minutes. The website is extremely confusing about which flight you are rebooked, confirmed or on standby. After waiting at the airport for five hours, I still ended up having to spend the night in Toronto. I flew back the next day after my flight was rebooked four times... I filed a claim for hotel reimbursement, but no responses after three days...."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Carry on luggage is handled by crew staff - makes boarding much easier as passengers aren't struggling to find space for the carry on bags. The bags are ready for pickup upon exiting the aircraft. Would highly recommend Porter and would use again."
Cons: "Flight was approx. 10 minutes late, but the time was made up during the flight."
Cons: "Online check in was useless and no one could assist. Deal staff very helpful when that was used as an alternative"
Pros: "The service both on board and in the airport was wonderful. This helped make my trip that much more enjoyable, and can't imagine picking another airline to Canada - I will always pick Porter Airlines!"
Pros: "the lounge was great in toronto. loved the free lattes."
Cons: "plane was delayed."
Pros: "Flexibility Experience on board number one!"
Pros: "Snacks were tasty, especially the chips"
Cons: "Flight was ridiculously delayed"
Cons: "This wasn't Porter's fault, but I didn't like that my plane was delayed."
Cons: "the flight was delayed many times with no real explanation. i tried calling customer service to get on an earlier flight, wait time was 75 minutes, and i found out that the earlier flights had been over sold so there were no openings... and they cancelled other flights later in the day which is why the earlier flights were overbooked. Also, the flight attendants seem to be militant about everything during take off and landing (this is not a good thing). If a customer wants to land with headphones in, i do not see a problem. this seems to be a change from every other porter flight ive been on."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was same one from earlier flight so at least she knew what was going on. Things were handled very strangely on the ground after landing from Ottawa though with little info being provided to those waiting to board."
Cons: "No info given to those waiting to board on what was happening, just "we will be boarding shortly". Due to two hour delay getting in from Ottawa and no information on when my Toronto flight would be leaving, I didn't get an opportunity to see if there was any actual food on this trip"
Pros: "This airline have a really bad customer service and they are the worst I ever encountered"
Pros: "Waiting for your plane, the actually gate in which you waited was nice."
Cons: "I did not like how there kiosk worked because I didn't have access to a 6 digit confirmation number or they didn't give me an email todo online check in early."
Pros: "Small lines, great lounge with light breakfast and refreshments for all passengers, very pleasant atmosphere. Quick boarding and almost instantaneous takeoff... nice on board service, with a variety of free snacks and drinks (including alcohol...)"
Cons: "Crowded Not enough time for preferential boarding Only I person at the gate resulting long line Not enough phone charging station Cleanliness disappeared So did the smiles and politeness"
Cons: "Customer service was very poor I will never be flying .Porter Airlines again My flight was cancel I sat at the airport for 8 hours before I could get on a flight. Mind you this was after being rebooked for the next day with no notification. The security agents are the one who inform me of the cancellation. NOT PORTER ."
Cons: "Crew member was argumentative and not helpful"
Pros: "Free to switch to earlier same day flight flying Toronto to Newark. Lounge in Toronto with free snacks, soda, and coffee. Free snack, drinks, and free alcohol in flight."
Cons: "Baggage policy unclear: carry on bags must be under 9 kg, supposed to be tagged as "approved" before boarding but process unclear at least at Toronto."
Cons: "They delayed my flight many times and finally I gave up."
Pros: "I like that they have their own section for Porter travelers only with complimentary snacks and drinks :) very cool!"
Cons: "I wish the plane had a bit more space and a TV, however I am perfectly fine with the way it is."
Cons: "3 different delays. Sat on runway for over 3 hours in Toronto and then Newark. The one bathroom on the plane was full and started to overflow so we were sitting on runway for an hour and a half with no bathroom and could not get off."
Pros: "Friendliest and most accommodating airline I have ever been on! Other airlines should follow them."
Pros: "They didn't know when the flight will take off and when I went to ask she ask me to set down until she find out after an hour delay I had to pay double for the service care for this hour because I wasn't able to notify them of the delay"
Cons: "Are flight was delayed 1 hr. Due to a issue at Newark, this would of been ok, except the gate manager announced it was due to low cloud ceiling and visiability. I'd think you would understand any one look to see the status of flights in Newark on their phone and see visibility was a few broken and visibility 10. So lying only puts distrust in paasangeners!"
Pros: "Kind and professional! They took care of me before I even realized I needed tending too! They also have a great complimentary earlier flight policy if you decide you need to jump on a earlier plane - which I did. Highly recommend"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say! Great experience"
Pros: "Customer service with flight attendants"
Cons: "Long lines"
Cons: "Air hostess were mean even with a empty plane. It was dirty and no one cleaned it."
Pros: "Best service"
Pros: "The plane got me to where I needed to go. The crew was nice. Complimentary snacks/coffee in the waiting area is cool."
Cons: "I knew I was running late for boarding so I had to reschedule tickets to a later flight. I was very upset over having to pay a $350 change fee so I could board a plane an hour later that was less than half full. If Porter had any decent customer service, they would've been happy to put me on another plane like any other airline with no fee."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "At least on time."
Cons: "Air craft was so old."
Pros: "Lounge in Toronto had comfortable seating and complimentary coffee was served in actual cups and saucers, very nice!"

Cons: "ALWAYS LATE! Or Cancelled. Total turn off"
Pros: "I love the Porter Lounge in Toronto and Newark."
Pros: "I arrived for my flight earlier than expected both ways and both times I was bumped up to earlier flights with no charge. I love that there isn't a charge for carry-on luggage and even checked luggage is very reasonably priced. Flight staff was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just what I hope for in a flight."
Pros: "On time good service 5 stars"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was great and the steam whistle was delicious."
Cons: "Uhhhhh see above. Horrible horrible airline!"
Pros: "The flight was very quick. I appreciated that the flight didn't take off until a lot of us were on the plane because the outside traffic delayed a lot of us from gettin there on time."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was rude. He was very demanding, wanted things done at his pace. And his sarcastic tone when asking passengers to do things like move their bags, or take out headphones to listen to the safety procedures; etc. were very unnappreciated. I've also never been tapped on the shoulder by a flight attendant and asked to take my headphones out to hear safety procedures."
Pros: "Great waiting area"
Cons: "No good food options on layover in Toronto City"
Pros: "Easy flight out of Bully Bishop. Love the terminal service in Toronto. Free espresso, drinks, and snacks! On flight service in wonderful! Nice attendants, free wine, cozy chairs."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The experience was great overall. The aircraft are modern and the crew are congenial. There are advantages to riding in such small aircraft, as boarding and deplaning are quick and easy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over twenty minutes and the gate changed."
Pros: "Overall it was great"
Cons: "Everything was great. Westjet is so much better than Air Canada!"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Allow seat selection without a fee. Provide entertainment and more comfortable seats."
Pros: "There was nothing wrong - though I’m not a fan of this new entertainment system where you have to bring your own device - but it wasn’t above and beyond enough to say excellent."
Cons: "Honestly this wasn’t the airline’s fault but I had the WoRST couple beside me arguing the entire time which dampened it. But airline-wise, thenonky thig inreally didn’t like was the new entertainment system where you have to have your own device."
Cons: "due to weather a pile of flights were cancelled, we had to call West Jet and get re-routed"
Cons: "Like to have some reading materials"

Cons: "Better option for movies and tv shows"
Pros: "Simply took 4 mins and I was away !"
Cons: "Everyone was great that I dealt with West Jet is great !"
Pros: "Seats had room. Entertainment options were quite good."
Cons: "WestJet has lost its Chutzpah. No longer knows it’s identity. Food choices were terrible for a 5.5 hour flight, and the couple of okay choices they were out of very quickly. Crew was friendly enough but no sparkle."
Cons: "Way too cramped. Only 1 washroom."
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and entertaining"
Cons: "No meals"
Pros: "Direct flight good sale price"
Cons: "Westjet connect doesn't work well. Plane very full and stuffy. Return flight delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "Took way way to long"
Pros: "We were happy to be seated in the exit row which gave us additional space. Although it was a direct flight, they offered drinks and snacks twice, when normally when flying I only see then come by once. I noticed Aiden seemed really friendly and kept a smile. Also when dropping off our luggage beforehand was a fairly speedy process."
Cons: "Seats don’t lean back."
Cons: "Boarding was not enforced by zones. When people line up it is better staff announce zones and force people to not get in line"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. Good leg room."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours. There was a change in gates and aircraft. The gate was too small for the amount of people boarding. Families were separated due to the change of aircraft. Few updates of the situation while waiting."
Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay"
Pros: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Cons: "Terrible selection of new releases and most were in French only! With English subtitles. This made no sense!"
Cons: "The wifi is paid.. no TVs"
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Phoenix was even worse than Air Canada. No food available to purchase. Cramped seating. Entertainment system was difficult to navigate...the buttons didn't work half the time, the movies were already playing and all the "bad" words were edited out which changed the entire movie. Waste of time. Would not fly WestJet again based on this experience. And what's the point of checking in online when you're called to verify id again at the check in counter."
Pros: "Fight and everything else was fine."
Cons: "There was a huge problem with the paper work..Names were not filled out right ( middle names missing) and Last name Misspelled even though on our copy it was first spelled right."
Pros: "Our flight boarded on time, flew on time, with great crew service."
Cons: "Landing was delayed by weather and we circled for 45 minutes after a speedy, early flight."
Pros: "Fast connection, friendly crew."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Left late but arrived on time!,"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
Pros: "Food was OK and the crew were ok."
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave a t 1045. Half an hour before the flight was to depart we were told that the plane is her, but it is in the hangar and they are trying to get it to the terminal for loading. (can you believe) Once it miraculously got to the terminal the crew had to do a safety check etc etc and we boarded the flight 30 minutes after scheduled departure time. We were then informed that the plane had to be fuelled with 20,000 lbs of fuel while we were boarded. This took another 20 minutes. Then they had to de ice. We departed 1 hour after the scheduled time. They ran out of meals on row 14. The entertainment system did not work. When the fasten seat belt sign was on and an announcement came on to stay in your seats, people were wandering around aimlessly and the crew never enforced the announcement. All in all a less than satisfactory experience and an airline I would not fly again if I can help it."
Pros: "Cheap flights"
Cons: "My bag handles were completely destroyed by the making it really hard to navigate a large airport without a handle to wheel my bags ."
Pros: "Almost on time - and upgraded to plus"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, a good selection of entertainment and comfortable seating."
Cons: "Having to wait in the plane for an hour prior to takeoff due to a lock issue with the washroom."
Pros: "Westjet connect on board. Snacks. No problem to get our bags."
Cons: "The waiting on the tarmac ( 1:00) with a young child. We arrived 2:30 later, so the desk for rental cars was closed."
Pros: "The seats were vinyl, not fabric - I prefer vinyl. It feels 'cleaner'."
Cons: "1.I did not like the flight crew announcing how great they (the crew) were at the start of announcements before take-off ---- If you are great, don't tell us, act like it - I found both crew members hardly engaging, one was sullen. 2. PA system was a little hard to understand anyway. Crew member should have put volume up and made sure was loud enough , but just seemed like wanted to use a 'cute' half french/half english accent to speak in. 3. Also this flight 3535 on Dec 21 Mtl- Toronto made me nervous although I fly often. Most nervous I have been because pilot took time to gain altitude after take off, and when landing had to accelerate then decelerate a number of times. Landing was (with 2 km/hr winds i.e. not much wind) almost on one wheel. 4. Food does not have to be so cheap e.g. sweet snack bar? Please bring back an assortment of nuts as they are at least nutritious. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "Fantastic flight!"
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "As always, the staff and crew were great. Left on time, arrived on time they go their best to deal with the shortcomings of the company."
Cons: "The entertainment system (or lack thereof...) not nearly enough iPads to rent and it never works on laptops."
Cons: "We left late and had a very hard landing"
Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."
Cons: "Arriving at Orlando, Real confusing and I'm not really old yet. Good thing we had people to meet us, I had no idea where to go."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Crowded seating"
Pros: "West Jet left on time. ."
Cons: "A 4 1/2 hour flight turned into close to 5 hours. Considering that a person has to be there well ahead of time, go through customs etc. a cup of coffee and 2 cookies and no entertainment anymore, it's a long and boring flight ."
Cons: "I downloaded the app but was disappointed that the aircraft had no Wifi. There were TV's on each seat back, but several weren't working, including mine. The flight attendant reset the satellite TV's on the whole aircraft, and mine began to work for about 15 mins. Then it stopped again. Very disappointing to be without wifi AND Tv. Esp since I read thru all my reading material on the way to Toronto."
Pros: "Screaming movies"
Cons: "Arriving over a hour late then staying on the tarmac in Orlando for another 45 minutes as the gate wasn't working when there was plenty of other gates available."
Pros: "Staff was great. Flight was on time and no one got bumped"
Pros: "It was a last minute trip, but I was able to bookwhat I needed fairly easy. I was given a lot of options as far as time and price."
Cons: "Sometime a lot of options can be a little stressful and/or overwhelming, but kind of expected with this type of booking site."
Pros: "Great plane B 787"
Cons: "Paid online for food and most choices gone Overpriced"
Cons: "Dirty plane, nobody bothered to wipe the tray table and Black Mold showing (extensively) at top air vents. Very uncomfortable flight. AC needs to do a Much Better job cleaning between flights!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were not kind to the customers and treated us like they were doing us a favor by working on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants at one time actually were talking about other passengers, who happened to be of Chinese descent like they weren't even there. Like they did not understand English. Just rude"
Pros: "Efficient and quick, no issues."
Cons: "flight was too bumpy"
Pros: "I loved everything!"
Pros: "We got there without crashing."
Cons: "Checking in and luggage drop off was chaos. One useless staff person failed to tell people where to line up to drop bags off until the end. She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."
Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"
Cons: "Entertainment options are old. Food in unaccomodating for Vegetarians."
Cons: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "After landing in Newar. One had to exit into the terminal and in order to connect, I had to go through TSA again, and the line was way too long. I had 2 hrs between flights and was able to make the connection, but I'm not sure if I only had one hour... I would have probably missed my connection."
Cons: "Time is money. Instead of telling customers to arrive 3 hours before departure and it is their problems if they can make it, a better way to be helpful is to have representatives ready to spend 3 minutes to look at customers' status, offer feasible options and point people to the right directions right away. Be a part of the solution! Don't be such a pain when you can offer a helping hand."
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "Friendly staff n helpful. Good seats, movies available"

Pros: "at least we wereat a part of the wedding"

Cons: "the entertainment system not functioning tjhat well."
Pros: "Tv options"
Cons: "I'm only 5'10" and my knees were digging into chair in front of me. Also, we had everyone boarded about ten minutes early (which is awesome) and we were told we would leave a bit early, but then sat there for about 15 minutes and departed even later due to long line for take off."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."
Cons: "They wouldn't seat us together"

Pros: "wonderful plane"
Cons: "NO WIFI!!!"
Pros: "organized boarding; timely departure and landing; baggage swifly appeared at carosel; younger members of the crew were great"
Cons: "Most senor member of the crew on the flight [female/blond] was flat out rude and clearly should not be interfacing with clients on flights."

Pros: "Short flight, crew is friendly, and easy boarding process."
Cons: "I find the Air Canada flights between Toronto and Newark are frequently delayed."
Cons: "it was delayed for 1 hour"
Cons: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."
Cons: "No TV service on an 11 hour flight. Really? It's 2016 can we get Air Canada into this decade please."
Pros: "Air Canada has good service. Our flight was delayed and I only got one announcement. I think next time it should be more."
Pros: "Boarding of children at the beginning of boarding operations. Double thumbs up."
Cons: "At 2 hours into the flight I was most of the way through a movie. The crew then announced that some passengers were unable to view the entertainment system so they were resetting the entire system. Crew said passengers would be able to resume watching entertainment at the point they left off. Needless to say this was not the case. The entertainment system never got reset properly and did not function for the rest of the 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "the flight actually went"
Cons: "our gate was switched and then there were no updates until after the original boarding time passed"
Pros: "Flight took 1 hour instead of the scheduled 1.5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late to board and then another hour late to actually take off."
Cons: "Plane edges were rather dirty with lots of debris. A little gross."
Cons: "* Worst food I have ever had on a plane. The crew did not even know what was in some of the food, which is not comforting if you have allergies. * Entertainment system earphones were so bad they were unusable."
Pros: "Got on flight"
Cons: "Got boarding pass but no signs to differentiate Air Canada counters (US-bound, domestic, international). Went to wrong counter and had to run to right one Booked flight. When I checked bag, I got a standby with hope that I could get on flight. Fortunately, I was able to make it. If I had connecting flights, it would have been a nightmare Same boring old movies and TV - 2 broke girls episodes. Just drink, nothing else for morning flight. Something to eat? It is an international (Can-US) flight Slow unloading of luggage"
Cons: "The airport crew lacked professionalism & courtesy when relaying information on the flight being delayed. Bad attitude from airport crew & lack of communication with delayed flight."
Pros: "The trip was amazing, for the extremely prompt and organized Japan crew boarding to the great and smooth flying despite the long time it took to get to Torinto"
Cons: "The food onboard could use an improvement, it felt very poor and flavorless. The Toronto immigration processing was cumbersome and time consuming, took us about an hour plus to clear customs which left us just enough time to make it to the gate for our connection flight to EWR. The process could be improved to allow for us to decompress enough to allow for a more relaxed connection flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and then when we boarded, were told that the flight would be delayed again . . . and then informed that the flight was canceled. The staff did not know what was happening, and kept us on the plane for almost 2 hours, before letting us off and telling us there were no hotels available. It was a nightmare experience transferring in Toronto. The crew did what they could, but they were largely kept in the dark too."
Pros: "Efficient, vigilant and helpful crew"

Pros: "Flight attendants did not wake me up!"
Pros: "Helpful friendly staff. flight on time."
Cons: "I booked with Airmiles and only had 1 flight time to choose from. Then when I changed my flight time I had to pay double what it would normally have cost me had I booked and paid for my flight instead of using Airmiles. Why are there not more flight times to choose from in the first place when booking through Airmiles?"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay and almost miss my connection flight... and its not the first time with Air Canada"
Cons: "When did Air Canada stop providing meals on international flights? It was my first time flying in/out of Newark on Air Canada and was surprised I had to purchase food on an international flight. Chicken noodle soup in a cup was $3, was about the only thing that looked reasonable on the menu."
Pros: "I was in economy + which had good leg room"
Cons: "Overhead bins for economy + are placed elsewhere. Preselected meal not available and was delayed in serving the alternative for 20 mins. Entertainment options include TV shows with 1 episode to pad the numbers"
Pros: "Lots of offers of water; great entertainment package; decent leg room and storage for items; fast deplaning; on time; also because the flight wasn't full they blocked off the seats around the bathrooms making it easier for people to stretch, chat and walk through that area--it seemed like the smart thing that crews might overlook but made a big difference for people with kids and those who wanted to stretch."
Cons: "maybe it's because I was behind the wing but I didn't hear a single word they said over the loudspeaker."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. Boarding was very organized and quick. The lady that checked us in was very pleasant to everyone. Joked around to make you feel more excited to board the plane."

Pros: "The security line was the shortest I've ever experienced and I loved that the gate wasn't far"
Pros: "I flew from Manchester NH to Miami with a layover in Newark. I had 7 people in my group with three of them being children. I did not choose seats before departure date and when we arrived at the airport we found that we were all in separate seats. The attendant noticed this and immediately moved people around to make sure the children were sitting with an adult. It was a small commuter plane so I was very surprised anyone would change seats. Thank you United for a great experience"

Cons: "I hadn't understood that the seating was 2-2-2 in Business. I was happy that the seat next to me was empty, but would not have liked it if it had been occupied. I wonder if they've done this to preserve some benefit for Furst Ckass passengers. I'd rather fly BA or Air Canada in business fir this reason."
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "We had a good flight on a beautiful day. Smooth ride no weather or atmosphere issues. Thank God. Stewardess was very polite."
Cons: "Wheel chairs were not provided in time. We had to wait till airline emptied and still wait. Cause of lack of assistance for wheel chair transporters. Some had connecting flights, pray they made it there. The ones that came to pick us up one two persons for eight people could not do the job. So we were taken off air craft n put out in lobby, to wait for all to be off the aircraft and then transport, one at a time to baggage claim area. Transporters and stewardess did a very gd job. Just the lack of help. Air conditioner on plane was off, so even ten minutes of smell bathrm, is just too much when air conditioning is off. I got very congested and had to use the inhaler, after a couple of sneezes due to environmental allergies. On top of that, cleaning people got on to clean w chemicals, only to affect me some more. Now I stuffed up, feel horrible, nite was bad with asthma n allergies that could have been avoided."
Pros: "Can't tell something out of the ordinary. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Uncomfortable all the way, remind me planes from the 90`s"
Pros: "Fast flight, on-time"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, really dirty looking bathroom"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and easy. The crew was great"
Cons: "Everyone is so crammed together in economy that even just a few hour flight was really uncomfortable for everyone in our row and we were all average sized people.

Cons: "Baggage retrieval. Confusing. Rude employee. Unhelpful. My husband circled the airport 4 times while I hunted down my bag and found it in a different location. It was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Stinky plane"
Cons: "They should offer free movies and this silly bags of nuts; can someone be more creative?"
Cons: "A caramel waffle is definitely better than salted pretzel sticks but the airline should at least offer chips or cookies."

Pros: "The leg space was great."
Cons: "The wifi never worked in either of the planes. There was mechanical failure and we were laid over in New Jersey for 3 hours. I paid $1200 dollars for two tickets that were suppose to fly us out to San Juan from Atlanta but a layover in New Jersey had to happen first. However the lay over ended up being 3 hours vs 1 hour and we missed a night in our hotel because of it. We landed in San Juan about 3 am and we took United flight from Atlanta at 3pm the afternoon before so we were beyond frustaited being that it was our Anniversary and all. So I will try not to fly United EVER AGAIN."

Cons: "There was no leg room what so ever! I am 6 foot tall and around 275 pounds. The seats were made for children, not made for an adult. My seat was so uncomfortable my legs actually went numb, mainly for the fact that I couldn’t move because of how tight the seats were. I have flown many times and this was by far the most uncomfortable flight ever! I will never fly again if this is how planes are going to be."
