Pros: "Plane seemed new and modern. Friendly staff, attentive."
Cons: "Only one side of my headphones worked, seats not very comfortable."
Cons: "We had three hour delay due to thunderstorms."
Pros: "The food was great. The fresh bread is always wonderful."
Cons: "There were no free alcoholic drinks which help me to sleep. I changed seats and moved Mach further back in the plane. I don’t know if that contributed to it, but I was disappointed when I learned of this."
Pros: "That we had a bottle water"
Pros: "On time and clean airline."
Cons: "Not helpful with stroller. Wanted us to sign off that they were not responsible for if stroller broke while handling it. Insane. They said it “might “ to big even though they didn’t know what measurements would be too big. We’ve flown for the last 3 years with this stroller but different airlines and never heard of such thing. (Since it’s the smallest city mini double stroller there is and folds flat- super small!) first time we flew SAS all. We didn’t sign anything and gate checked it and all was fine but some incompetent crew at check in. Not very helpful finding seats with all four of us. Put us in different rows. Could work on their customer service for sure."
Pros: "The 7 hr trip to Copenhagen was rough. The seats are too close together. My knees hit the seat in front of me even without reclining. When the seat in front of me reclined the tv screen was 6” away from my face. It was next to impossible to get out of the seat."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Complimentary bottles of water. Comfortable blankets."
Pros: "Left on time. 50 minutes early in Copenhagen. Food was not bad."
Cons: "TSA at EWR was ridiculous. Slow lines and very inefficient."
Pros: "All around everything was excellent. Will most likely always fly SAS between Riga and USA."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food as well"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic and Newark airport is very inconvenient. No signs to terminal B and the sky train with the compartment system is not very functional. I am tall person and sitting in the middle of the middle row was very inconvenient wilh not enough leg space."
Pros: "Efficient crew, food served at proper temperatures Good movie selections"
Cons: "My seat could/would not recline, passenger in front of me had his seat in recline for most of flight. it was a long uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "late. support afterwards was awful."
Pros: "Timely & helpful"
Cons: "Missed my flight due to weather east coast"
Cons: "We were unaware of the need to buy an infant ticket on international flights. When we checked in to our SAS flight in Newark, we were given a boarding pass for our infant without any heads up about the issue. We also got help with ordering bassinet from the gate agent, all without anything surfaced. It wasn't until we were boarding that we learned that we needed to buy a ticket and pay $400+ and nearly didn't make the flight. Can someone follow up now, as we need to make sure this issue has now been resolved for our return flight to SFO on Thursday July 6th"
Pros: "The airline is very professional and the crew were very courteous."
Cons: "During my layover, the airline did not post the gate for my flight to Athens until an hour before, which caused me to have to run across the terminal to another set of gates."
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "The plane was hot and my seat was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "Plane left Newark an hour late and I missed my connecting flight in Oslo. Once I did get on a flight from Oslo to Copenhagen, there was no room for my carry on luggage. The stewardess took it and said it would be put in cargo, but now they can't find it! Two bad experiences with SAS in a row. Don't want to use them again."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Pros: "Very good service with excellent entertainment. Nice smooth flight. An excellent value."
Cons: "Passport control in Copenhagen is too slow to allow for a 35 minute layover. We missed our flight to Stuttgart and had to go to the transfers counter. The service at the transfers counter was outstanding and they put us onto a Lufhansa flight. In the end we got to Stuttgart 5 hours later than planned."
Cons: "1) on the plane, they announced a choice of two meals and I enquired why did I get one without choice and they told me the second choice was an option only for 'economy plus' !! That was a rude situation....I felt cheated and then insulted . 2) CPH - Nice : The breakfast or the included orange drink gave me an upset stomach and bad case of Hemorroides. 3) I accepted a glass of tomatoe juice and when I asked for a coke with my lunch , the stewardess said I had only right to one drink and would have to pay the rest....really ? - wine used to be free and now a glass costs $4...really ?? 4) I arrived at CPH airport for my transfer .. the flight was yet not on the screen but no one gave any instruction and no officials of any kind were around to enquire....a cleaning crew finally directed me correctly. 5) the security line in New York to board was ridiculously long...someone shouted to take off our smelly shoes...really ?? 6) most were directed to the right with four snaking unending lines to one security check . From time to time others were directly directed ed to the left where there was no line and option of two security checks. Half way through my wait , most were directed to the left and all who were 'late', were let out first to their gate. The whole experience before, on the plane and after was not worth the money...least of all a pleasant one."
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Stockholm was late, so I was late for the flight to Vilnius,had to recheck-in and wait for 6 hours."
Cons: "A very dishonest experience. The booking never made it clear that I was not allowed to check my suitcase and I had to pay € 70 extra both coming and going and thereby paid 1 1/2 times more for my suitcase than for my ticket. I am very disappointed to be 'tricked' in this way and consider it a very dishonest business practice."
Pros: "The cleanliness"
Cons: "I Had checked several times to make sure I had 2 bags included ( standard for US-EU flights) and every time. At the airport I had to pay an extra charge for my second bag which made the flight very expensive and just ruined the whole experience for me"
Pros: "New airbus with good entertainment screenset clean"
Cons: "Delays on boarding (on departing as well as returning home) Damaged luggage"
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "The food, the comfortable seats, boarding."
Cons: "The entertainment options, very few movies, limited kinds of music"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and attentive. Seemed to care about the comfort of the passengers. Very inviting and gracious."
Cons: "Seats and pillows could be more comfortable. All airline food is not good so okay indicated above is above expectations."
Cons: "Entertainment systems were not working for many of us."
Pros: "The thoughtfulness and competency of the personnel. I needed wheelchair assistance and found that every was very attentive to my needs and very competent, especially the ones assigned to get me from place to place. Even in Rome, where we had to deplane on the tarmac, I had a young woman and a young man to assist me and they helped me in every way possible."
Cons: "I needed a gluten free meal and found it rather dry and unappetizing."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Charge for drinks. TV broken no recompensatuon"
Pros: "It was great to have a bottle of water right at the beginning of the flight! Made it easier to settle down and relax."
Cons: "It would be great to have a greater offer of music. I really like to listen to some new music from good artists and to get inspired for new music on a long flight. It's too bad, SAS only offers playlists of 1 hour..."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food option, Drinks are not free(international flight), no toilet paper"
Pros: "The food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't have enough money to sit in a seat with leg room."
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Seated by toilet which Ididn't realize"
Pros: "Boarding process was lovely, flight attendants were very nice, very smooth flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, somewhat small for a 6-foot+ tall person to fit, especially legroom"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Pros: "Passengers nice"
Cons: "Food options not everyone eats chicken"
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "We were within a reasonable range of on time arriving, although we were delayed 30 minutes at the start due to fueling issues. Crew was average: no problems, no extraordinary acts of kindness. Great selection of movies to watch onboard."

Pros: "Boarding was pretty much a free for all"
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. Excellent pilot, good crew."

Cons: "nothing !"
Pros: "Flight not full could stretch out Arrived early yet gate was ready"
Cons: "Printing baggage tags and putting on suitcase and hefting to conveyor belt. Someone there to help us but we are reaching the age where hoisting bags is not smart"
Pros: "flights themselves were fine. But see next box."
Cons: "Newark to Oslo to Kristiansand. The "connecting" flight procedure was horrible. There was no way to forward the luggage, except pick it up, and then stand in long line, check in, etc etc., as if it were an entirely new flight. On phone they told me there would be expedited procedure. It was like taking an entirely new flight. All other countries have this worked out. What happened? I nearly missed my second flight."
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "Late taking off from Newark"
Pros: "Good food. Decent selection of movies and television, helpful crew"
Cons: "Seats are not shaped like a human spine. They curve away from the occupant's lower back instead of providing lumbar support."

Pros: "The food was actually tasty but we didn't get enough beverages to stay hydrated during the flight."
Cons: "My screen didn't work and the crew was rather rude about it and never fixed it. The seats were way too close together, which is to be expected but when the seat in front of me went back, I couldn't move at all and I'm not a big person. We weren't served water/beverages but once on the flight."

Pros: "Checked in online. Got boarding pass. Dropped bag at Aer Lingus desk. All easy. Very cordial and helpful staff."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable plane. I’m small so usually I have some room to move in my seat. Not on this plane. Most uncomfortable ride ever. Once seat in front of me was back I could not retrieve anything stowed under my seat. No room to bend. Awful. Also plane seemed worn. The magazine rack in front of my seat was brokenness one side and kept falling forward on my knees. Had hoped to sleep during this redeye; not a chance."
Pros: "The check-in at JFK was super fast and efficient. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. Also, had a connecting flight and my luggage arrived with me-big plus."
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "Food/ beverage service poor - luggage handling extremely bad. Delayed delivery at muc airport of one bag. Second bag did not arrive. Their luggage handler - global- extremely un/non professional. Absolute diaster: no offical tracing nr established, had tocontact air lingus myself.their phones seem not to work - the phone rings,then disconnects. Still no update on the present whereabout of the bag"

Pros: "The flight was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "The packaged meals are never the best, but the breakfast box was good."
Pros: "Very comfortable Transfer in Dublin very easy Everyone very helpful"
Cons: "I was not permitted to check in online through any website (BA, Are Lingus etc.) then I was not permitted to self-check in at a kiosk. By the time I was able to check in all that was left was a middle seat. I asked about upgrades and was told I would need to pay full price for one of those tickets. The seats are veryyy cramped, the entertainment system was outdated, the food was gross and wine was expensive."

Cons: "The flight attendant from JFK to Dublin was rude. She wore glasses and was blond"

Pros: "Crew was efficient"
Cons: "Seats were cramped , my bottom was numb , sound on tv terrible, food was pleasant crew efficient and professional"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, I know it's the safe in economy on all airlines, but it's tough!"
Cons: "On the MIA-DUB flight, my headset/entertainment would keep losing sound. On the DUB-BRU: the flight was almost an hour late. They could have at least given free coffee or water to all of us in Economy."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by a little over an hour, but the pilot managed to make up some time. Airplane was clean enough and crew was friendly."
Cons: "No free coffee"
Pros: "Flight crew was great."

Pros: "Great crew food was good timely and professional."
Cons: "Need headphone adaptors. Airline headphones terrible."
Pros: "Clean plane & bathrooms"
Cons: "About 45 minute late in take off. The sound system for movie was very distorted almost not usable. I fly several times a year. My first time with Aer Lingus. This was not a good example of your profession"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled without a reschedule"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Very courteous staff. Comfortable seats and great movie selection. Food wasn't bad either."
Cons: "This was the first time in my life that an airline lost my luggage. I finally got it back 2 days later but it was a very stressful experience."
Pros: "Everything was basic. I got an old plane so everything wasn't up to date"
Cons: "It was slow in taking off, not sure why but the plane was taxi'd for a long time. In-flight system and variety was lacking. Audio was poor. It did the job taking me to my destination but the great."
Pros: "It was a full flight and the attendance were friendly and attentive."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment system--so many great movies & tv shows to choose from but the earphones were so bad I couldn't hear any of it."
Pros: "Good movie selection, not bad food,"
Cons: "Flight arrival time, not a fan of the red-eye."
Pros: "Comfortable flat seats. Nice staff"
Pros: "The flights were on time."
Cons: "Since I booked with vayama, through kayak, aerlingus wouldn't give me more than basic flight info. I didn't even know if my seats were confirmed, which they weren't on the connecting flight with JetBlue airlines. The website said to contact vayama, vayam said contact the airline. Our bags were not checked through to our destination so we had to collect them in New York. They are supposedly partner airlines but told us we had no choice and had to wait till aerlingus opened customer service. We were stuck for 7 hours outside of security with our bags and 1 Duncan donuts kiosk. The 12 hr overall layover was bad enough without that. I understand that booking through discount sites comes with its own cost, but you should know if you have assigned seats and that your baggage will make it."
Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew. They were calm, professional and incredibly kind. We had along our 10 month old baby and they were so welcoming and helpful with her. The best crew I've ever interacted with on a flight."
Pros: "The crew were leaders. So much when you fly these days the crew don't take a leadership role. I don't mean, become mean - I mean to be a true leader. Say what needs to be said but don't say it mean."
Cons: "The plane was cold at times. The breakfast muffin could have been healthier....the ingredients were a bit off putting..too much sugar and artificial ingredients!!"
Cons: "Gate agents were quite rude"
Pros: "You can never really go wrong with Aer Lingus."
Pros: "I thought the staff was attentive and friendly. I'm an anxious flier and the flight attendant checked on me multiple times during the flight. Thank you. The plane appeared new and clean."
Cons: "I don't have any negative feedback."
Pros: "The crew was great. We were given seat assignments 16 rows from our daughter, but they assisted and a passenger switched with her. The entertainment center looked good, if it had worked."
Cons: "The seating is so tight that reclining more than two inches severely interferes with the passenger behind. The narrow seats meant leaving an arm in the aisle, which the crew constantly ran into. The entertainment center was broken. The shepherd pie reminded me of military rations, and not in a good way. Between the tight space, reclining seats, blanket and pillow, you really have no room at sll"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours at JFK. Missed connecting flight in Dublin. Journey from JFK to Munich took 171/2 hours. Airline gave my a big $14 worth of coupons."
Pros: "blankets were about as thick as toilet paper. Seats were really cramped, and difficult to sleep in. pillows felt like sandpaper, breakfast was unimpressive. Asked for an extra blanket and was told no, even though I saw many when I was leaving the plane. Young daughter was shivering while trying to sleep. Really bad experience."
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seats Fairly unfriendly, unhelpful crew"
Cons: "TV and remote didn't work."
Pros: "We missed the flight by five minutes do to our connecting flight being late. We had mechanical issues, weather delays and an aborted landing in Miami."
Cons: "Tap would not roll us over for the next day. We had executive tickets in business class. They wanted 3000.00 dollars each for the flight."
Cons: "The Airbus 330 is onder Verizon with classic beats with less place and pedals. Also the personal screens are far outdated"
Pros: "Not much. Check in luggage charges destroyed the experience, this was not disclosed on the ticket itinerary"
Cons: "TAP charges $120 1st checkin bag, this was not disclosed on the itinerary or kayak site when we book the ticket. We expect kayak to refund this."
Cons: "Dinner (entree, salad, shrimp appetizer, roll, and flan) and breakfast (fruit,croissant, roll,meat, cheese) were delicious -- but left us stuffed.Outstanding service. Milk or creme with coffee would have been nice."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Boarding slightly convoluted but ok"
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Flight#1 was late. I missed the connecting flight to Basel. I have to stay overnight in Brussels and fly VERY early to Basel in the morning."
Pros: "Great food. Arrive and flying"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, nothing special"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and cold except for the major hot dish. Lights were on almost all night in cabiaudio and video were subpar or nonexistent. Staff explained it was an old plan Seats were okay for short fight but not comfortable for long flight"
Cons: "Schedule wrong, missed next flight"
Pros: "Probably won’t buy from Kayak again."
Cons: "Charged double for baggage on moble check in. Called 3 times - spent over an hour to find out since I bought discount tickets no refunds for excess baggage. I didn’t want excess baggage their website automatically charged double - website said ecess charged automatic when checking in. Won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "Nice paid business class upgrade"
Cons: "Seat 1F gets hit quite often during service"
Cons: "why do they sell their tickets when they know they can not make the connection? little time between the two flights compared to the functionality of the airport. never again TAP"
Cons: "I was dehydrated because I could barely get enough water to drink"
Pros: "The service appeared to be good but everything was rationed"
Pros: "The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Super accommodating. They had wonderful customer service."
Cons: "The videos weren’t working, so we had no flight entertainment. I didn’t realize I had to pay $105 USD for my ONE 25 kg bag since it wasn’t on their website nor was I told at check-in. They called my name at the gate and told me I had to pay for it. The food wasn’t that great— my potato, or maybe yucca?, was rock hard, and the chicken needed a lot of salt. The seats didn’t decline that well, and the temperature was either freezing or really hot."
Cons: "No vegan food options. Filthy toilet"
Pros: "Comfortable chairs with foot support., friendly staff, good food and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was canceled which was out of their control. Unfortunately, what wasn’t out of their control was the amount of people handling the rebooking. One person was handling alternate flights. I was the 6th person in line (which was the time equivalent of an hour and half wait. I missed all possible reroutes due to flights closing. The customer service of tap airlines is severely lacking"
Cons: "Flight was late and made me miss the connecting flight"
Cons: "Crew was very sour faced, impolite and rude the whole time. Seats were way too packed"
Pros: "was a direct flight"
Cons: "we were made to exit down a slepery stairs and pack ourselves like sadines on a bus to the terminal..not good!"
Cons: "Theo charge me a lot for my luggages I just try to call many times to tap for ask about the sports luggages and I never can reach then nobody ever answer the fone . They charge me 124 $ for my board and 90 dollars for my bag the total is 214 $ that’s almost the same price of the ticket ."
Pros: "Food was abundant and pretty good. I paid $91.95 US (think it was 75 euro) for the exit row and felt this was money well spent."
Cons: "They charged me $90 for my luggage. Several weeks or perhaps even months after I booked, I received an e-mail saying I had booked Super Cheap Economy or some such. It had a link to pay for 'additional services' but not luggage. At the time of booking, I checked and the price given was $35. So, I have protested the additional $55 with my CC company and will see what happens. BTW the luggage was not overweight. They turned off all the lights, including my personal reading lamp, so I could not read and had to just sit there doing nothing. That really blew big chunks. I only got two small glasses of wine."
Pros: "Very good staff and decent food"
Cons: "Video in business was worse than my economy experiences 20 years ago!!!!"
Cons: "Outdated movies"
Pros: "The extra room and comfort the business class provides"
Cons: "The business class cabins are not up-to-date and state of the art. The seats are not comfortable. On my outbound flight, the seat did not fully lay flat. The electrical outlet was old and worn out and ended up not charging my devices because it was too loose. They need to install USB outlets like everybody else. Needs more luxury like others in business class"
Cons: "Theo lost my luggage the plane was full of dust"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the chairs are so close together. When passenger wanted to incline their chairs it would be too far back to be comfortable for the person behind. And to sit on the plane for a long fight in this uncomfortable position is not good. They need to make sure all chairs a fixed and now obstructing passengers comfortable manner"
Cons: "You can't reach them via phone and they are horrifically slow and difficult to get ahold of."
Pros: "Ability to see a bit of Lisbon on the way"
Cons: "Baggage charges that were not shown anywhere on the website. A nasty surprise when we checked luggage. Lost wallet on plane and customer service was unhelpful."
Cons: "Too sleep deprived from earlier missed connection to notice much about this flight except for the complete mess when it came to boarding. You can't line up 4 boarding zones in an area that is maybe 10ft by 10"
Cons: "Staff at the check-in and boarding."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Been charged for a baggage fee even if I shown the crew that it was written FREE on my confirmation email. I shouldn't had to pay for your illegal (wrong information) email and miscommunication. It costed me 2 times $45 for it"
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like that on a 3:30 hour delay the passengers did not get information about the delay. Line for check-in was too long. More then 2 hours on the line to check-in. Uncomfortable seats (too tight)"
Cons: "Booked my flight in January to ensure good seating for my family. Checked in day before departure and all my seats were changed. Also on my return flight. No notifications. We ended up all the way in the rear of the aircraft. Totally unexceptable"
Pros: "The punctuality"
Cons: "The airplane was small for a 8-9 hours trip, the seat were super small, I'm not a big person and I was very uncomfortable in them, the crew wasn't very nice, the food was a mess the girl next to me was a vegan and they give her a cheese sandwich, entertainment didn't work well there were only 4 channels, comparing to AirEuropa very mediocre and awfull airplane, really I'm from Venezuela and even there the airplanes are better, not worthy the 600$ one way ticket I got."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent. Flight was relatively smooth."
Cons: "Seats in economy were uncomfortable. Food was fair, at best. Wine was offered with dinner(a plus) but only once."
Pros: "Food was excellent, and the cabin crew extremely nice and attentive. Amenities kit was adorable too!"
Cons: "We were in first class, and no On Demand IFE!!! You do have a personal screen in the seatback, but they only play continual loop movies. For us, we started with one movie, but then due to technical difficulties, the crew had to reboot the entire system. So once it was back up and running, they switched the movie. And even that one didn't play through....apparently, at some point they determine its "bedtime" and turn off the IFE!! Crazy in this day and age!!! Also, the plane is old and REALLY worn. Lots of dirt, tired seats, yucky bathrooms, etc. This plane needs an overhaul!! No storage anywhere in the seats either, which was shocking. And the angle lay flat seats are certainly fantastic in comparison to Coach seats, but still hard to sleep and get comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was mediocre,"
Cons: "Seats were too narrow,very little leg room,poor choices in entertainment"
Cons: "I got food poisoning from the dinner that was served. The crew was very helpful though"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No leg room. The worst I have ever experienced and for a seven hour flight, it was unacceptable."
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing!!"
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Pros: "Good crew, ok seats(economy), good tv."
Cons: "Food was, well airline food, better than you find on domestic flights."
Pros: "on time clean plane price"
Cons: "flight attendant not super friendly older plane thus enttainement outdated"
Cons: "I understand that the airplanes over that was the driest chicken I've ever seen."
Pros: "Nothing was to like."
Cons: "The men who were working the boarding were absolute brutes. Rude, hostile, completely unprofessional. Treated many people horribly and then acted smugly upon boarding."
Cons: "No vegetarian meals, unless you request it 48 hours in advance. Seats are incredibly uncomfortable and the planes are old. Compared to the entertainment services provided on other aircrafts for other aircraft providers, the experience is abysmal. Bathroom was also not well attended."
Cons: "I'm vegetarian and I can't chose the option when I made the checkin"
Cons: "Not being delayed so much on an already very late flight."
Cons: "More clearly written policy about baggage allowance"
Cons: "Overhead luggage compartment in business class was poor"
Pros: "How I was treated How I felt was wonderful."
Cons: "The agent in Miami suggested I needed to eat something. He was calling me fat, and my daughter picked up on it. He also kept us waiting at the front of the economy check in line for well over 40 mins. When we asked him why he said the computer would not allow him to pull from our line. The flight itsself was delayed for over 2 hrs and was discusting. Dirty aircraft. I despise Air Canada"
Pros: "regular flight"
Cons: "did not appreciate the 2 hr delay"
Pros: "The passengers, the Brussels airport retail area, 1 of the flight attendants who was polite and welcoming, and the entertainment selections. Finally being connected to Swiss staff."
Cons: "The crew was not very welcoming and was borderline rude when I asked any sort of question such as why I was not allowed to wear my headphones prior to take off. I was patient in not wearing them, but could not relaxing into the trip for the 40+ minutes we remained on the ground mostly not moving. I was tired when boarding and fumbled with my documents and was very curtly told to just hand them over. Another time I accidentally mistook headphones the stewardess was handing out for something else. I took a pair and then immediately gave them back with an apology that I didn't realise what they were, but thanked her anyway. This was met with a scowl and a bit of opposition. There was one stewardess that was very nice and accommodating out of the entire crew. On top of this the toilet seat on the plane was broken, so it fell on you when you were trying to go to the bathroom, and the soap dispenser was broken. I didn't dare mention these things to the flight crew though. The plane was late taking off from Montreal, and so was late landing in Brussels. No effort was made to provide connections assistance, or provide directions on where to go to rebook our missed connections. I and all others traveling to Zurich spent the entire morning trying to find anyone from Air Canada to help us rebook our flights. We literally were going from desk to desk between two terminals, and consulting each other as we went to limit the amount of leg work we all had to do. We all had to finally leave the terminal area and go to Swissport and stand in a long slow line. By that time any afternoon flight was already overbooked. So I and a group of other passengers were booked for an evening flight which forced me to book a hotel in Zurich because I couldn't get to where I needed to be that evening. After being rebook, I still tried to get on an earlier flight by going directly to the gate. It was confirmed that there was some extra space available, but they would not switch me to the earlier flight because I had a checked bag that I could not separate me from. Ultimately my bag was lost which made me have to stay awake and in the Zurich airport even longer after I finally arrived going from one lost baggage representative to another, and then waiting in another line to finally fill out paperwork because my bag had never been scanned in Brussels. The Zurich representatives were very polite, helpful, and efficient compared to anyone I encountered in Montreal, or Brussels. I was without my bag for 3.5 days of what was supposed to be a 10 day trip. My trip was reduced to 9 days because I spent an entire day in the Brussels airport and then had to spend the night in Zurich. I arrived in Zurich on Saturday night, and received my bag on Tuesday afternoon. All in all it was not a good experience until I got to Switzerland."
Cons: "You cancelled our flight & then made the rebooking process a hastle & did not provide all available options."
Pros: "Staff very accommodating."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing to like . Bad service all around. I will never fly AC again"
Cons: "Terrible employees in Miami. Rude and unhelpful. Delay due to late arrival. Then diverted to Toronto because of AUR CANADA'S STUPIDITY. Had to "sleep" in airport. Delayed leaving Toronto next day. Baggage lost. Lost day at work. A general NIGHTMARE FROM START TO FINISH"

Cons: "We sat on the plane for an hour waiting for a hanger and couldn't get up as we were on the runway."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew."
Cons: "Awful headphones"

Pros: "No tv"
Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "The connection"
Pros: "The end of the trip and delivery of luggage 24 hours after arriving in Vienna"
Cons: "Old and partly broken plane, horrible food. 2 officials to immigrate hundreds of people at Brussels. Breakdown of luggage system in Brussels. No luggage at arrival in Vienna."
Cons: "Everything- packed tight like sardines"
Cons: "i booked the flight in january and keyed in my passport expiration date several times online in the next several months...at the airport, i handed the air canada agent in miami my passport and she booked me and a checked bag through toronto to copenhagen...i went to board my connecting flight in toronto and was told my passport, which expires at the end of august, was no good as i needed to have 3 month left...so they refused to let me board and told me to go see customer service...so i go stand in line for several hours (was only one agent for the first 45 minutes and 10 people in front of me)...one woman going down the line to see what each person's issue was told me that it was my problem, not AC's...and that "we are only responsible for making sure your passport is valid for getting into canada"...i was on my own to find a hotel and a new flight...fortunately a supervisor saw me standing in a daze several minutes later and said that it was AC's mistake for not catching it in miami...so she booked me into a hotel, gave me the address to the US consulate and instructions on how to get an emergency passport...she said that it would be no problem as "this happens all the time"and went ahead and booked me on the next day's flight...so i was able to spend the next day getting the new passport and getting back to the airport to fly out that night, but i lost a day in copenhagen with my family...it seems to me that when flights are booked and passport info, including expiration date, are given, a simple cross check of dates would be easy, and, imho, incumbent upon the carrier taking you there, especially when "it happens all the time"...this was not done on 4 occasions between booking and my trip...there were other issues too which is why i will never fly air canada again and i will never travel though toronto...the return trip through that airport was a nightmare for many passengers."
Cons: "Late start on each leg. Entertainment not available in every flight."
Pros: "Dinner was ok, Breakfast and coffee were horrrible"
Cons: "Very rude staff, would not do anything I asked and responded with attitude"
Cons: "Flight delay of almost one hour."
Cons: "seating space too small"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and ride was very smooth."
Cons: "Plane was delayed over an hour due to mechanical problem but it is uncontrollable event."
Cons: "The tv in business class weren't really working... stopping the movies by it self and I had to always restart them until I gave up on watching a movie!"
Pros: "Overall smooth flight"
Cons: "Sits are a little cramped"
Cons: "Hardly any space, 5'8 & my knees were hitting the seats in front of me. Attendant was unfriendly & neglectful. Somehow everyone got a drink except for me, then when asked for a glass of water it never did come... Made me check (my only) luggage upon boarding because attedant said it was too large... meanwhile I've traveled around the world with this exact same carry on luggage, never without a problem. Had to then wait 30min to get my (only) bag upon landing."
Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "A new 150$ bottle of perfume was stolen from my checked in luggage."
Cons: "No legroom. None. Feels like spirit airlines."
Pros: "The crew and food were fine."
Cons: "They don't adequately warn you that you need to download an app to use entertainment system before you get on board. The wifi in the airport is terrible so not able to download app for all devices. The entertainment choices were very limited. For such a long flight, they should add more choices. Would not recommend Air Canada for light to/from Europe."
Cons: "*jewellery stolen from check bag *flight was late *crew were rude *no flight entertainment *lost baggage Worst flying experience"
Pros: "The fact that the airline offered meal vouchers and still attempted to fly to Toronto instead of cancelling the flight."

Cons: "Did not like the idea that we had to pay for use of Ipad to watch shows , especially since I didnt have my own."
Cons: "1hour 32 min late departure flight from Miami Missed my two conection to budapest, arrived to my destination 8 hours late. Airlines lost my luggage . I missed all my bussines meeting huge lost for me."
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."
Cons: "Boarding: Late Crew: Lied to me about doing me a favor changing seats while it was me who did it online Comfort: narrow seats Food: purchasable, nothing included Entertainment: no screen available and was told an app could be downloaded just when the plane was about to take off"

Pros: "Mu mil was ver y please with the trip"

Pros: "Great Customer Service"
Pros: "I am traveling with a friend that needs a wheel chair. The staff in Miami made sure that we got to our gate and boarded first. In Toronto they got us through immigration very quickly and got us to the gate an loaded on to the plane to TelAviv with a coordinated team that was really great. Our terminal of arrival and departure were very far apart. A wheel chair was ready and waiting, then a motorized cart was ready and waiting. The transition from one staff member to another was amazing. I would fly Air Canada anytime I could."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the hassle of not having a seat assignment until 24 hours before flight time."
Pros: "Very organized ,clean planes"
Pros: "economy plus legroom."
Cons: "actual reclining seats, edible food, broader movie selection and newer films.,"
Pros: "The flight was on time; other than that, nothing was good."
Cons: "Everything! For starters, the seats. It seemed as if we were inside a cage where you can barely move your hand. Extremely disgusting flight!"
Pros: "Staff found us two seats together. Food was good."
Cons: "Email telling us about pre airport arrival check in and seat selection."
Pros: "The crew was kind and smiling (not like the worst crew I’ve ever had Brussels Airlines)"

Pros: "Vagi food stinks HeadPhone plug good for 1 ear Seats are too crowded"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good entertainment and good service. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Missed our flight from Brussels to Zurich. United said we were booked on next flight six hours later. Gave us vouchers and that was it. Went to check in and the carrier said sorry you can’t board United did not book you. The voucher just has prior info and this flight time. So we missed getting on that flight 3 total hours on the phone with United and they did nothing but put us on hold. Thank you to Brussels air who finally after many years and frustration helped us so we could leave. More than 10 hours later than we should have. Horrible experience and we lost a day of vacation and pre paid plans for the evening I will never use kayak again for international flights. As that was part of the problem per United (probably BS but won’t ever risk it again) and will never use United airlines again as their customer service and lack of caring showed that companies true colors. I hope the rest of this dream vacation is better than this nightmare was."
Pros: "We were surprised to find ourselves assigned to the bulkhead seats where we had extra legroom and great access to the restrooms."
Cons: "Wish I could have selected my seat when booking my flight"
Pros: "IAD to Brussels Flight is ok, just stuck between 2 guys with BO. Not really the United Airline's fault. But I hope they can atleast put a sign or something."
Pros: "The price, the mango sorbet, short flight into Belgium, the coffee, the water being offered often"
Cons: "The tray was very dirty and obviously had not been disinfected from the previous flight. So I brought it to the attention of one of the crew members, and I felt like she made fun of me in front of other passengers for not liking my tray dirty; and she got a little paper towel for serving, wet it with a bottled water, and wiped my tray quickly. Not hygienic at all and not a word of apology. AIR FRANCE is so much better when it comes to customer service! Also I did not like the constant interruption on the speakers, very loud in my headsets and difficult to watch a movie on tiny screens. The crew members seemed very bossy and uncaring, if not actually rude."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew made this trip pleasant and entertaining."
Cons: "Despite plenty of empty seats, the ground personnel would not consider changing our seat assignment at the gate to allow us to sit together."
Pros: "I was put up in a hotel"
Cons: "I never received my luggage. I waited hours and Swissport never filed a report. I did see the Brussels flight I should have gone on did depart late. But as I was waiting for luggage and they gave me a hotel room I hadn’t checked the screen. I was most concerned of the person travelling to pick me up in Bordeaux as it is a journey for them as well"
Pros: "Very good flight, good service and good night of rest."
Cons: "space between seats!"
Pros: "There was a good entertainment system with a lot of new options."
Cons: "My itinerary said I fly on Brussels Airlines on a specific flight number. I went to the international terminal to discover it is not there. I then asked multiple aiport staff members if they heard of Brussels Airlines and they said they did not. One person said it may be terminal 1, so I went there based on very little information and with hopes it would be there. I got to terminal 1 to discover there is no Brussels Airlines. I walked to Lufthansa because my return flight is through them, but it was not there either. At this point I have 45 min to make it through security and board, and no one can tell me where Brussels Airlines is. The good news is the flight was delayed, and I got an email from United Airlines with the flight status. This is the first time I was contacted by United and there was a completly different flight number than the itinerary. United should be more clear on the airline and terminal information for international flights!"
Pros: "no problems on flight. complimentary wine."
Cons: "seats bit tight for international flight. why do I have to pay more for more leg room"
Pros: "Great crew and flight attendants, kept us informed of everything, very helpful and prompt on all questions and requests. Movie selection was impressive. Boarding was efficient and flight even left early. Surprisingly pleasant experience in economy for a long flight."
Pros: "1. We booked seats together then when I checked in they had moved my seat and we were no longer sitting together. And then I couldnt get the window seat I had paI'd for :( 2. No boarding announcement and the "gate" was under construction so was a madhouse to board. 3. The crew member put her sweater in my food and pushed the coffee so hard to the person next to me it spilled all over him. To be fair she did apologize for throwing coffee on him. 4. The TV screens were so old you had to push the "touch" screen so your headrest kept moving if the person behind you couldn't decided what to watch... and then hard to watch anything yourself. The food was nasty."
Cons: "See above. I didn't like anything, this might have been the worst flight I've ever had to Brussels. I thought I booked a European carrier, but ugh it was actually United. They only care about business class and first class."
Cons: "I had ear ache probably caused by the pressure"
Pros: "Nice food, good crew"
Pros: "The soda"
Cons: "Crazy lady sat next to me complaining about noise"
Pros: "Just about everything was perfect. lots of leg room in economy plus, seat next to me stayed empty, the meals were very taste. And the crew members were extremely professional. It was just a perfect experience."

Pros: "We had nice flight even so the airplain was full."
Cons: "Not quite.little bit noisy."
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable ."
Cons: "The entertainment - not enough movies on Russuian or Hebrew"
Cons: "we have been sitting in the cabin for over an hour while they have feuled the plain as they forgot to complete it"
Pros: "Mechanical, then radio, then pilot issues, then crew, then rescheduling and canceling flights."
Cons: "Pretty much nothing great about this airlines besides the fact that it makes other airlines look good in comparison to itself. I now fully appreciate Asian and middle eastern airlines which not only provide good service but actually do the one thing you pay for, get you to your arrival spot. I'd rather eat a box of tacks than fly with United again."
Pros: "Good food, nice movies. I set in the second line so there was no place to put personal things on the seat before me."
Cons: "The flight was over booked... To many people in the gate."
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in."

Cons: "Seat size. Snacks both ways! I need like s snack option "peanuts or granola""
Pros: "Flight crew was good"
Pros: "On time arrival, the food, the crew"
Cons: "No power outlet and very old entertainment system. United has introduced a nice wifi-based entertainment system but if you do not have power outlets to keep devices up the system is pretty much useless after one movie or less."
Pros: "Visiting the country for a two hour flight you could have offered free wifi"
Pros: "Getting back on board and continue will my flight."
Cons: "Waiting hours to reboard."
Pros: "Friendly service from flight crew."
Cons: "Didn't like being seated away from my cousin, or the excessive delays during my layover. I definitely didn't like the cleanliness of the planes or the airport facilities. Alot of things were lacking in comparison to my to Miami."
