Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."

Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."
Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."
Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."
Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."

Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."
Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No wifi was absolutely aggravating. Seat space was bad as well - very little leg room."
Pros: "The meals were very small and not very tasty. Economy appears to have lost staff as it takes the entire flight to get a drink and dinner, the feeling you get is that you should just get on board and then sit quietly for 7 hours and not ask for anything. The entertainment does not have a very large selection and if you fly regularly does not seem to update very often."
Pros: "Very racist !!! I'm black . I didn't get service I paid for , The food was mediocre. The beef was not cooked Or just tasted like it wasn't good. I don't think I'm flying virgin Atlantic again . Bad bad experience from all my flights ."

Pros: "Frequent drinks, attentive stewards/stewardesses, good gluten free meal, comfortable seats smooth flight First checked bag is free."
Cons: "Seats were very slim - armrests were pressing on hips when trying to shift my bottom to change position. The 45 minute delay due to fog. No snacks - like nuts, pretzels, etc"
Pros: "Not much to be honest. Which is a shame because I usually love the service from Virgin Atlantic."
Cons: "The TV system needed replacing. The controller was broken and the sound was terrible. Made my flight longer than needed."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at my destination until 2 days after I did. And after I checked my luggage, a leather satchel was stolen from my suitcase. I reported the theft to Virgin Atlantic and requested a report nearly a week ago and have heard nothing back. I am usually careful about packing luggage, and did not think the leather satchel would attract a thief working for the airline, but I will not make that mistake again! DO NOT TRUST VIRGIN TO HANDLE LUGGAGE."
Pros: "It was a lot faster than originally predicted."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system kept glitching and needed to be reset a few times"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional staff. Clean cabin."

Pros: "That I arrived safely; )"
Cons: "So little space"
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"

Cons: "More engaged crew. The"
Pros: "A lot of seating space. very comfortable."
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi."
Cons: "We paid for meals that were NOT delivered"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Cons: "We had three hour delay due to thunderstorms."
Pros: "That we had a bottle water"
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."
Cons: "We arrived late in Copenhagen and I had 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Even though I was checked-in for the Copenhagen to Athens flight it left without me. I was then transferred through Prague to get to Athens and again missed my connecting flight through there. Now I am stuck in Prague looking for a flight to Athens and most likely will miss my next flight from Athens to Karpathos and will again be stuck in Athens because there are no flights out to Karpathos until 19 of May, 3days from now. I was physically in the Copenhagen airport and could have made that flight, I feel that since I was already checked in they should have waited for me and allowed me to board. Now I will Be missing work!"

Cons: "late. support afterwards was awful."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Great hot fresh bread! On time."

But, it was after hours on the airline number phone number and the fly.com customer service could not help with finding an alternate connection from Oslo to FRA. It was frustrating to then have to wait at Oslo airport for another 4 hours before the new connecting flight."
Pros: "Excellent all around. Super smooth, friendly and fast!!"
Pros: "2 meals included for a 7 hour flight!"
Pros: "Internet not working. Horrible."

Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour & half"
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment, & food"
Cons: "I didn't get any veg options for my dinner at all"
Pros: "First time using SAS and very pleasant trip"
Pros: "I was running late for the flight due to bad traffic en route to the airport. Nonetheless, the staff was very understanding, and called me to the gate once I finally arrived to assign me a seat since I wasn't given one when I checked in online. They upgraded me without my asking... to an economy plus exit row, so I had lots of room during the 8 hour flight to Copenhagen. The plane was new - an Airbus A330 - and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Entire crew very attentive!! We ate like Kings!"
Cons: "Long layover in Newark! My fault for not noticing when I booked it!"
Pros: "I chose SAS since I have used this airline on most of my travels to Norway. It has been without any problems and I highly recommend it. The staff all try to make you comfortable and do not hesitate to get whatever you ask for. I have no plan to change plane. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office. I know they are very busy like any other airlines but please return our calls and answer questions as we are fully entitled to their attention using their airline. . Thank you."
Pros: "Made it safely to destination"
Cons: "Series of unfortunate events: 1. No air vents in seats. Plane was very warm the entire flight. My husband and I spent 6+ hours sweating in our seats. 2. Dinner was not served until 9:30/10PM. By the time we received our food in the back, it was cold. 3. For guests who wanted to sleep during the red eye, the lights were not turned off until after dinner and cleanup, which meant only 2 or so hours of sleep in dark."
Pros: "Great movies. Lcd Screen is awesome"
Cons: "Somewhat unfriendly crew"
Cons: "Missed my flight due to weather east coast"
Pros: "After four hours waiting on the tarmac, at 3AM in the morning, the flying attendants gave us free peanuts. That was very thoughtful."
Cons: "Worst experience ever. We waited on the tarmac for almost 4 hours, due a technical problem. Finally, they gave up attempting to solve the problem (at 3.30AM), and we disembarked. No assistance at all. No hotel. No meals. Rescheduling was a lengthy process. Staff was rude. Really a nightmare of an experience. Note to self: never ever fly again with SAS."
Cons: "Not water for children."
Cons: "The flight arrived an hour late."
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."

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: "Significant changes to my ticket were made without notifying the traveler such that I was unable to travel on the scheduled day. Was offered a ticket next day but wasn't told that it would be a stand by one. Boarding staff kept saying I would get the new ticket by email but I got nothing (again). Good thing I asked for a print out. Too much stress..."
Pros: "It was great! Thank you!"

Pros: "Me gusta el servicio, la comodidad del idioma.. y la puntualidad de los viajes.."
Cons: "Yo me sentí mal con la displicente atención del auxiliar de vuelo. El no quiso ayudarme a poner mi equipaje de mano en el compartimiento encima de mi asiento. Dijo que si el levantaba esa maleta el podía dañar su espalda.. y el seguro no lo atenderia.. le dije al señor que yo había solicitado asistencia.. pero el dijo que para otra vez, pusiera mi equipaje en carga.. un pasajero vecino de mi asiento al ver la negativa actitud de ese señor.. levantó mi equipaje y me ayudó. Yo soy viajero frecuente de Iberia y se que una mala actitud no hará cambiar mi preferencia."
Cons: "Our seats was almost the last seat of all our flights, even we checked in very early."
Cons: "I paid for wifi and I could not use it. There was a problem with the connexion. So, I paid for nothing"
Cons: "Even though I bought my ticket through British airways, they made me check in through Iberia. No one told me beforehand so I waited in line at the BA line for about 20 mins and was told by the ticket agent to go to Iberia instead. Also, two medium delays. Not major but I did feel like I spent more time on the plane than I should have"
Cons: "Airline personnel were not helpful and seemed annoyed when asked questions about a very tight connection I was trying to make in Madrid. They brushed off my questions with one word answers and then it turned out that we were 10 minutes late arriving and I missed my connection. The customer service people who were supposed to re-book me, actually tried to blame me for missing the connection! Overall, not a great experience -- very inefficient process with no one at the airline taking responsibility. Won't fly again if I have the choice."
Pros: "No complaints everything was good No delays on time flights going and returning back"

Cons: "The gate changes, the late start, bad or no info or help from front desk or onboard personnel regarding your connections"
Pros: "I liked the service and, the in flight entertainment system. It was good food."

Cons: "Boarding process is excrutiating"
Pros: "Crew entertainment food."

Pros: "Landing was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "It was fine, nothing special"
Cons: "The internet was very, very expensive! $35 for very very slow internet that didn't work half of the time. Also, before I departed from the US, the customer service rep at JFK made me purchase a refundable plane ticket for $2500, and charged me a non refundable fee of $35 for booking the flight for me ( I asked how to do it via the Iberia website on my phone and she refused to help me, and the website makes it extremely not obvious how to book a refundable flight). She said because my flight was one way to Europe I had to have an onward flight, even though I was traveling by car outside of Europe. She said that they would ask me for it at customs when I arrived in Europe. Well they have never asked me for this before, and they did not ask me this time either when I arrived, so this whole exercise was pointless. When I called to get my ticket refunded, they also charged me a $25 fee for refunding the ticket, which the agent in NY did not tell me about. So I just ate $60 for no reason. In addition, the customer service person was very rude about the whole thing."
Pros: "Emergency exit seats. Very narrow though."
Cons: "I don't know what they served us. I wouldn't call that food. Breakfast was even more depressing than dinner. No entertainment system, except those collective screens – everybody needs to watch the same movie. Staff was rude and flight was 2 and half hours LATE."
Cons: "The only bad thing is that the checking at JFK was very long!!!!"
Cons: "Delays delays delays!!! Terrible!! We were waiting 7 hours!! No compensation was offered!"
Pros: "Lie-flat seats were very comfortable. Flight was quite smooth. Left late but arrived on schedule. Wine was very good."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. IFE was so-so. Baggage handling was very slow on arrival."
Cons: "Terrible Uncomfortable Overbooked"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent movie selection, ample leg room, clean and new plane, staff was attentive."
Cons: "Food was average, foot rests were hard to operate, alcohol selection was scant, only beer and wine are complimentary, you must pay for spirits in premium economy"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Pretty hassle free. Our flight wasn't completely full which helped. International flight so food was served as well as complimentary wine and beer. Would fly with them again."
Pros: "the food and the entertaiment"
Cons: "long trip"
Pros: "Crew was nice enough."
Cons: "Boarding started very late and left airport late, somehow landed "on time" but without enough time or guidance to make connecting flight. Although arrived at gate before schedule flight time, were not allowed to board, missing the connecting flight and was then charged a ludicrous amount in fees. Will never travel again."
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "It got me hone."
Cons: "Very small seats we were not given any snacks or drinks."
Cons: "I paid more to make sure I would have a shorter trip from Tucson to Paris, with only one connection and a less than 2 hour connection in Dallad. Yet, I was in Dallas from 3pm until 8:30pm with my 3 year old who was exhausted and hungry. I guess it was not worth paying more for a short connection."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Iberia had outstanding service"
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "They lost our bags wnd my whole trip is ruined. I m out thousands of dollars because I have things booked that I cannot go to because I have no clothes and I cannot leave my room,"
Pros: "It was on time and good selection on movies"
Cons: "Iberia needs new aircrafts... They are always kinda old..."
Pros: "Movies and food were both very good."
Cons: "Boarding was laugh out loud stupid. Worse than cattle. No announcements. Looked like the entire process was run by high schoolers. They wouldn't let us board till the last because we hadn't booked a return on BA. Among the worst flights ever"
Cons: "Put in standby, even with reservation. Choppy fight."
Pros: "My bag did not make it to Madrid. It is still in Pariscand they don't know if it will be delivered tonight Sunday at 10 pm or tomorrow Minday! I have no clothes, no toiletries and am extremely frustrated."
Cons: "The clarity about baggage fees, really unclear and very expensive."
Cons: "The flight wasn't full but still had some people seated next to each other. Flights should allow for social distancing right now"
Cons: "Did you know the flight was changed?? It moved from Nov 24 to Nov 25. I was never informed of this change that was supposedly made in October.. Even you (kayak) didn’t know bc you still think I took the flight that I booked on your site! I was forced to rebook with another airline and will be expecting a refund and then some and possibly dispute the charge all together."
Pros: "Very happy with the service and seat comfort. Thank you"
Cons: "I was surprised by a $120 fee for luggage. I don't remember any indication from Kayak or from TAP about a luggage fee when I booked or when I got confirmation. Further, I found out that if I had indicated that I had luggage 3 days prior to checkin, I would have only been charged $92 saving me $."
Cons: "Avoid Lisbon airport and TAP Air Portugal at all costs. A 1 hour connection at the inefficient Lisbon airport resulted in a 9HOUR DELAY. MISERABLE. Air Portugal didn’t allow adequate connection time."
Cons: "Not missing our connecting flight because if flight / airport delays."
Cons: "A little too warm but not unbearable. We paid extra for seats together but did not get to pick them. We would have preferred a window but were in the middle 2 of 4."
Cons: "I arrived 13 hours late, had two extra flights. I was delayed 3 hours first flight, 1.5 hours second flight after watching two flights that I “wasn’t allowed” to be on depart right in front of me at 9 and 10 instead of the 11 that they rebooked me on. Once I landed in Lisbon after the second flight that o wasn’t supposed to take. We missed the connection by 5 minutes and there were many people flying to my same destination. I had to wait 5 hours in Lisbon when I shouldn’t have ever went to Lisbon. I bought a ticket from Newark to Zürich through Porto 10 hours in total. I think TAP overbooked everyone and seated us on purpose. The secondflight was delayed due to “bad weather” and it was perfectly nice outside. Shame on TAP. I’m sure other people are complaining."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I’m taking offFlight was smooth and service was great."
Cons: "Flight was smooth and service was great. Long wait before taking off."
Pros: "Cancelled flight. Charged for bags even though we prepaid for them."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "When TAP couldn’t get me to Lisbon in time to make my connection they added a flight to Madrid where I waited until 16:00 to fly to Seville. I talked to several TAP representatives and none were helpful or apologetic and they offered me nothing for the problems they caused. I missed my only day in Seville due to this. This trip turned out to be a disaster."
Cons: "The plane was very small service was not good and the crew were not that friendly"
Pros: "Boarding, crew, timeliness, choice of entertainment, modern plane."
Cons: "Food could be more inspired, legroom is limited"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay!"
Cons: "When the flight was delayed the people at the desk did not make an announcement about the delay, what was causing it and what we could expect. People waiting had to find out through rumors. There was no good communication. We also were unable to choose our seat and were stuck in the two middle seats when there were free aisle seats still available. My controller for the tv didn't fit back into the holder easily at all and my husband got a blood blister trying to force it back in. Headrest to hold my head didn't stay put to give proper support while trying to sleep."
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Newark so we missed our connection in Portugal which was supposed to take us straight to Venice. Instead TAP gave us a replacement flight to Madrid and then from Madrid to Venice A FLIGHT WITH TWO STOPS IS NOT WHAT WE WANTED OR PAID FOR. Madrid was also delayed and we missed our connection to Venice. We got a new flight from Madrid to Venice and had to wait 5 hours for it. A trip from New Jersey to Venice ended up taking OVER 24 HOURS!!!! Due to the disgraceful disorganization and service of TAP PORTUGA we missed our best friends rehersal dinner a memory we would have loved to have. Extremely disorganized, terrible customer service OH AND WE HAD TO PAY FOR OUR BAGS TWICE to get reimbursed later but I don’t believe anything Tap Portugal says so we’ll see. Staff advice did not align and they were unapologetic for the experience we received."
Cons: "Everything. The travel experience was a literal nightmare and not what we paid for. It’s criminal actually."
Pros: "They solved the problem of my sit. But i almost have a hurt attack"
Cons: "When I get to check my tickets they told me that I was in stand by. I have to fight to get my sit."
Cons: "bad experience- The personnal was not that good! Lack of manners! Bording was evryone for himself; people with children left behind, evryone got in, all at once. The food was very bad, usual it is good..I dont know if i would fly again with TAP"
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential."
Cons: "My wife and I arrived to the airport for our honeymoon extremely excited. We had been saving for our trip to Italy for months, and we were finally going to get things started. Everything fell apart when we went to check in and we were told that my wife couldn’t use her ticket because she had changed her last name. We were told that there was no way that the name on the ticket could be changed because of TSA regulations. Of course, we were also told that we could have changed the name had we purchased a more expensive ticket. In other words, we were lied to and told the issue was regulation, when really they wouldn’t help us because we couldn’t afford a more expensive ticket. The only help we were given was the pleasure of paying over $1,500 more to get my wife on the flight. I am in the process of trying to get this refunded, but as of now we have paid twice for my wife to fly, and neither ticket has been refunded. We may have accidentally broken a rule, but the only function that rule seems to have is to make us pay twice for the same seat. As of now, I would never fly this airline again, and I would warn everyone away from it. I will update this post if TAP does the right thing by two honeymooners."
Pros: "Meal was OK."
Cons: "TAP changed our seats even though we had paid extra. They were narrow and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Friendliness flight attendees Service on board Equipment/ tv Food beverage service Language skills of flight attendants"
Cons: "Poor entertainment"
Pros: "I liked being able to exit the plane at the end of the flight"
Cons: "The seats were cramped and it’s upsetting how you can’t select your own. Flying overseas for 7 plus hours it’s best not to be sandwiched in between two strangers, some of which were vomiting the entire flight due to turbulence that the pilot announced would only be minor."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Had to wait forever to find out Gate Number."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No VOD No food available in between meals"
Pros: "I got to London"
Cons: "9 hour delay"
Cons: "My round trip ticket was purchased and in the confirmation it stated that it included one free checked bag. i also went online to reserve a window seat which cost 12.95. When I got to the airport I was told I had to pay 110 for my one checked bag as well as they had moved me to an aisle seat. Basically scammed me out of 122.95. I have complained with ygthe airline and if it is not resolved I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Cons: "They were lying about a supposed compensation for denied boarding which was supposed to be handed out in Lisbon. I didn't expect this behavior from grown up people, and such a company in Europe. TAP should be excluded from star alliance."
Cons: "There were no power outlets"
Pros: "If your traveling with a child they are the best! Legroom was good, seats were confortable, and entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible but I guess I'm lucky the served it. Didnt like that they changed the baggage policy after I purchased my ticket and wouldnt honor the old."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room between you and the seat in front of you. Huge plane. Very nice."
Cons: "My video screen did not have English available"
Cons: "The monitors did not work."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good info on delay"
Cons: "No offer of coffee in businesss when woke up. Still 35-40 before landing"
Pros: "Some staff were helpful"
Cons: "To start off our trip we weren't allowed to get on the plane until an hour after our boarding time. After we were allowed on, the air conditioning was not working and continued to sit on the tarmac not even leaving our terminal for another two hours. Within this two hours there were many elderly people asking for help and one specific gentleman whom was in his late 70s, informed the people around him that he had a pacemaker was pleading to get some air conditioning to the point where 6 people on the airplane were fanning him off. It was 90 degrees in the airplane and we had been sitting in the plane without any help even pleading with the attendents to let the elderly off so they did not pass out. Once we reached the 2 hour mark without any ac the gentleman in his late 70s was beginning to lose consciousness and many people had to call the emergency services, and the crew on flight TP214, tried to tell us everything was fine while the plane was pulling away from the terminal ... as they were giving the man oxygen, even though the elderly gentleman had lost the ability to communicate verbally and was about to pass out. They had to pull the plane back off the tarmac fully delaying us 3 hours in the process making us miss our other two flights. Once we were finally in the air for the 6 hour flight our entertainment system was not working so we were left to twiddle our thumbs for the remainder of the trip. It really ruined what seemed to be an exciting trip and I highly doubt we would ever take TAP Portugal ever again or recommend it to anyone no matter the price."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food, complimentary wine!"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom because I'm 6'4". Was given a different seat and still charged."

Cons: "Rude staff."

Cons: "Layover in Lisbon is way too long!"
Pros: "The wine"
Cons: "The entertainment platform was on the fritz the entire flight. Almost all the headphone jacks didn't work or were shorting out. This plane had the two prong headphone connectors so you are forced to use their terrible plastic ones. The legroom for an international flight was terrible, almost the same as Spirit Airlines in their economy class. The food was very bad (dried beef with noodle) and cold by the time I was served."

Pros: "Overall a great experience."
Cons: "My flight from NYC to Montreal was delayed 4 hours due to a storm that had passed earlier in the day. That was understandable, however we then sat on the tarmac at the gate for an additional hour because Air Canada's entire computer system suddenly crashed. We finally got to the runway and in the middle of takeoff the pilot slammed on the brakes and aborted the takeoff because he did not reach high enough speed. It was very scary. I was supposed to land in Montreal at 10:20 pm but arrived there at 2:30 am the next morning."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Horrible customer care"
Pros: "Well organized and stress-free flow of people/services."

Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "Was not on time, old air craft."
Pros: "Air Canada sucks! Rip off artists. Service is poor and price gauging is rampant"

Cons: "Cancelled flights and delays."
Cons: "AC Ticket attendants were unbelievably rude."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "Cancelled flights, delays, no refund option so I had to wait 15hrs to get to a 1 hrs destination. Then they lost my luggage so my mini weekend away turned into a disaster. I basically wasted $1,000 for a nightmare trip. If they would've just issued a refund in the beginning I would've been fine w the cancelation."
Cons: "Needed subtitles on movies"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Too much late. I missed all my itenerary planned by Campus France. I had to pay for a taxi and a new train ticket."

Cons: "Cramped very crowded plane."
Cons: "I called and confirmed a special meal 40 hours in advance. They said they had no request form me and gave me fruit,"
