Cons: "Crying baby"
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Pros: "The on time departure. The air hostesses were very attentive. Fast baggage arrival"

Pros: "Orderly boarding process."
Cons: "Overweight people being seated int he middle seat and sticking their elbows over both arm rests while comfortably sleeping."
Pros: "The flight attendants made the safety briefing extremely lively and personal, a wonderful break from the normal tedious process. The rest of the flight was quiet, uneventful, and pleasant in part due to their good nature. I cannot have gluten or soy, and I was brought a complimentary bag of potato chips that were gluten free - the one and only time this has happened! I hope to fly with this crew again someday."
Pros: "Delta changed me to another flight without charge and the rep was very accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Multiple delays, from 8:15 to 8:49 to 9:05 to 9:39 to 10:12 to 10:19 to 10:25. I am not joking. Honestly, if the delay is due to 'maintenance' for an incoming plane that has not left its originating destination, why quote any time at all? The check in rep did provide an announcement at 8:15 that although the time of departure had moved to 9:05 , he did not see how that was possible since our plane was on the ground in Richmond undergoing maintenance. I was in LGA. When I heard that, I changed to another flight, so the outcome was not as bad as it could have been. I am aware of these other times since my email is packed with Delta's notifications, which I welcome usually."
Cons: "Access to LGA has become too problematic due to the construction. We will use other airports on our future trips to NY"
Pros: "Friendly service. On-time."
Cons: "No tv's in airplane."
Cons: "Everything. Boarded, day on the runway for nearly 3 hours, and then cancelled. No hotel allowance and all hotels near LGA full."

Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"

Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."

Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."

Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."

Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "More leg room"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Pros: "Amasing crew"
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "The crew did its best to make up for the fact that the special meal I ordered was inedible."
Cons: "See previous"
Cons: "More options for gluten free food. Always get the same dish"
Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."
Cons: "Lost my luggage."
Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, missed connection, and lost baggage. Subpar."

Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Pros: "The food was okay and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "My seat and several others around me were broken so that they would fall all the way back if we leaned back at all. The entertainment system kept crashing and forgetting what shows everyone on board we’re watching. There were no air vents to control. The games crashed constantly. The usb hubs didn’t work."
Pros: "Onboard crew was friendly. Dinner was good"
Cons: "Cabin was very cold. Not enough legroom compared to orher international carriers. Male flight attendant kept bumping into my husband sitting in aisle seat so he unable to get any sleep. We tried upgrading to business but Delta said we had to contact Air France in Detroit. When thrre, the gentleman on ground crew was actually rude when I asked about it. He could have just politely told me there was nothing available. Not looking forward to my return flight"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."
Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Pros: "It was a wonderful flight and service . Hospitality and welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing ."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Plenty of seat space"

Pros: "Todo muy bien Volvería a viajar con ellos."

Pros: "Crew and boarding, not much else to talk about. Late for take off, but made it on time"
Cons: "Late leaving and arriving."
Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pros: "I enjoyed the food, the crew's friendliness in First Class and the boarding process."
Cons: "The wi-fi did not work on our flight"
Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."
Pros: "The customer service phone number was impossible to get through on in order to take to someone within 24 hours of my flight in order to make my Special Meals request as I have Celiac's Disease. I was unable to make this selection at booking as when you book through a third party like Expedia, which I did, you cannot access the same internal tools required to make that selection. You can ONLY then call once you have checked in before the flight in order to let the airline know of your Special Meal needs. This is not only a terrible policy as it undercuts those who ARE ultimately still buying tickets to their airline, and that the airline is CHOOSING to sell. It provided me with an extremely subpar experience of the airline but left up to the last minute with doubts about my ability to board a 13 he international flight without the reassurance that I would have ANY meals aboard and no other options should that be the case. Right before my flight departed I was reassured that the information we had requested Expedia relay to the airline internally the day before, who we called when we couldn't get through to the airline, WAS able to convey this Special Meal request and I was going to have food on the flight, so I then did not purchase a bunch of snacks in the airport to have as options. The first meal in, no Special Meal was provided and I had to explain then entire situation all over again. They assured me they would figure it out and get me taken care of. However, no one who assisted me conveyed this to anyone else on the flight and every time food was dispersed, same situation. This was stressful and exhausting and the options provided me were modified to be gluten free, such as an entire plate of fruit for my snack, instead of the protein heavy snack everyone else received, because there truly wasn't extra for that type of dietary restriction. This was stressful and I was very hungry on the flight. One of the attendants got me a few chunks of cheese from first class, but otherwise, it wasn't great. I would advise travelers with Special Meal requests NOT to fly with AirCanada."
Pros: "The crew was ok, very uncomfortable seat, I had an isle seat and everyone bumped into my shoulder. I never had to pay for checked baggage in a transatlantic flight, it’s not my first time flying. I was also asked to check my carry on, to what I declined for personal reasons."
Pros: "Movie options were good. Nothing else."
Pros: "I don’t usually complain, but this was probably my least comfortable flight. Not much that I liked about the flight."
Cons: "Compensation or at least an apology for tv screen and air conditioning not working. The flight was hot and boring."
Cons: "Attendee is very rude."
Pros: "Most of the flight there was strong odor of suer smell"
Cons: "This was a direct flight from DFW to Vancouver. 3.5 hours. Upon arrival in Vancouver we were paged to baggage claim and informed that our bags were taken off the plane and would arrive later in the night. Problem was, we were leaving on a cruise at 4:30PM. Our bags had two cruise luggage tags on each bag. When our bags were delivered to us 2.5 days later in Ketchikan, Alaska - The cruise tags had been torn off our bags. There were a minimum of 8 vacant seats and corresponding luggage not on this plane. I believe Air Canada had a chance to load more cargo and removed our luggage to make more room for the cargo. I will never fly this airline again. I had nothing good to say to anyone on our cruise regarding this airline. Terrible passenger service. The guest services said that 16 bags were delivered in Ketchikan from Air Canada."
Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."

Pros: "No water in washroom No coffee , Coffee machine do not work Food is for purchase and the whole menu is not available except one item only crew are not friendly No head phones for entertainment I will NOT fly with Air Canada again unless I am forecd to do so"
Cons: "Crew did not seem to want to do anything extra. Movies seem to be out of date. Unpopular TV shows. A little cramped seating. I paid for a premium seat, no real difference I could tell."
Cons: "Many connecting flights jammed together F terminal at YYZ. SOME thing caused delay after delay. This really messed up baggage people. Once we boarded after like - 10 delays and a gate change, there were NUMEROUS whole-flight mixups with luggage - so many similar flight numbers traveling to same destination and whole flights awaiting their luggage. Our party of four had our luggage spread through THREE different planes. WTH? No customer service at DTW once we arrived and there were so many livid people. Absolutely awful. We were supposed to arrive at 5PM and it's now 3:11AM. My son just completed filing a luggage claim loss. And we are off to drive home to Grand Rapids two hours away. Nightmare."

Pros: "I like the prompt service by Air Csnada ticketing at DFW . I got immediate attention and wheelchair staff was very gentle and friendly. Very smooth process passed TSA."
Cons: "When arriving YYZ, don't mind to be the last passenger to get off, but I was waiting inside the plane for wheelchair about 30 mins after everyone has gone. Perhaps the staff should be managed better the timing. Lucky yyz is my destination, otherwise i would have missed the connecting flight. Waiting for 30 mins is too long. Also the staff stopped for another 10 m in ns to take care of something else. I thought one staff should only take care of one passenger at a time. It showed unprofessional gesture. Btw I didn't get ckeck in email for my return flight to YYZ."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment options, we must of had a very old plane on the trip there because it lacked entertainment unless you brought your own tablet/smart phone or paid to rent one. The food was terrible both directions, please fix that because it's a long flight to be hungry!"
Cons: "Food needs serious improvement"
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Cons: "A lady threw up on my hardcover book. And I had to move from a windo to a middle seat. Overall it was not a nice experience."
Pros: "Comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "Baggage fees and no snacks."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth but then the flight was not full"
Cons: "The crew looked bored and surly. They missed giving me my pre ordered meal. When they finally found it it was given without the water bottle. I had to ask for tea twice only to be told that all hot beverages had been poured out."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room, was actually painfull"
Pros: "At least we had movies and a book."
Cons: "The checkin staff were not at there designated area on time and the flight was delayed for over an hour causing us to not be able to board our connecting flight from Toronto to Milan."
Cons: "They over sold the flight and we couldn't board the plane."
Pros: "I liked that access to movies was provided without needing to download an app prior to departure."
Cons: "The drink and snack crew offered extra pretzels to the row in front of me and skipped my row completely. Had to ask them when they were already nearing the end of the plane for this since flagging them down didn't work."
Pros: "Loved the great GPS display."
Pros: "Everything was good, just a small plane... 2 seats on each side of the row and being tall, there just isn't room for my legs!"
Cons: "I booked this particular flight because it was the shortest route available. But the Air Canada flight from Dallas was delayed for an hour and then we experienced computer problems causing further delays. I therefore missed my connection in Toroto and was told by the ground staff I could only get out 2 days later. I was also told there were no hotels available. There were long lines of angry people complaining, and they were from different flights, One couple complained they missed 2 days of their honeymoon. The plane did have seats in business class which they refused to hand out. Eventually they found me a hotel and redirected me through Frankfort the next day. It turned out to be a 27 hour trip. Huge disappointment."
Pros: "Nice aircraft. Good direct flight without the hassle of a layover"
Cons: "Seat comfort not so good. The cabins a bit dated with the seats needing to be tightened."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good and the staff did reasonably well even though most of the customers were clearly unhappy."
Cons: "A majority of flights run by Air Canada to the US were delayed. If this had been due to weather, fine, but at least our delay was caused by mechanical malfunction. Our flight was delayed for 5 hours due to multiple different mechanical issues including that the bathroom would not function during the entire flight, the wing flap had issues and the door would not seal correctly. The flight immediately preceding ours to Minneapolis was also delayed by over 4 hours. Surprisingly the flight before that also had a bathroom malfunction that prevented customers from using the bathroom. If this was the exception we could understand, but looking at the history of our flight, it's only on time 23% of the time. The poor customer service people must hate their lives. Something needs to change."
Pros: "Movie options were decent. Good was good."
Cons: "More (new release) movie options would be better."
Pros: "Service, flight, food"
Cons: "Lost my luggage, two days before it was returned."
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew. They worked really hard with what little they have to work with."
Cons: "Old planes, aisles way too narrow and too long, made drink service take forever!! Dicey for a diabetic, even when I brought my own water on. Food was yuck. Plane smelled, but the bathrooms were stinky! Can't you put up a sign asking men to sit down?! Urine on the floor, as always. Window blinds were sticky. Will never fly Air Canada again if I have any other option!"
Cons: "The frustrating portion was the airline's lack of desire to fix our problems. The first flight was late because of mechanical issues and then Air Canada was not at all forthcoming in getting us rebooked on the next flight. Something that should have been quite simple involved me having to fight with workers just to get put on a new flight -- nobody wanted to actually do the work."
