The actual flight was ok. But was a mess before departing AMS. My previous flight was late, so missed my connection in AMS. Then I spent over two hours getting things settled to get another flight. I was unable to complete my request online, and no one at KLM in AMS wanted to help. They kept giving me the run-around until I finally convinced them K was stuck without their personal help. It added a lot of stress (and about 5 more hours of transit time) to my overall journey.
Delayed flight, it is noticeable airplanes noticeable aged
Both airports totally understaffed. Awful experience.

No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"

Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"

Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"

Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
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: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."

Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "Staff, service"
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Pros: "Calm, friendly and professional crew, good food and spotlessly clean aircraft."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. People were jumping the line saying they were in the zone that was called when they couldn’t have been. I was there early (one of the 1st) but because I’m polite and only approached the gate when my zone was called, ended up at the back. More monitoring of this would help because I saw other people bothered by this."
Cons: "my first flight overseas. friendly staff. movies ..headphones..pillow and blankets included. 2 beverages included with meal. only downside was paying for checked bag. looks like that is included on the return flight so that won't be and issue on the way home. no issues with carryons."
Cons: "Seat was terribl, space tiny, no legroom no air movement, hot the entire trip,"
Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Seating room, food, and service"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Cons: "More room. Not losing our luggage at the end."
Pros: "On time travel. Check In Staff were kind and engaging."
Cons: "On flight staff were minimally attentive. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "The quality of the seat, cleanliness of the aircraft (with the exception of the restrooms). Ground and lounge crew excellent and knowledgeable. Boarding was swift but confusing."
Cons: "In cabin crew was substandard. Very slow in the food service, often times rude and lound when addressing passengers, and failed to clean the restrooms in flight, which left them in dire state and smelled. An unusually unpleasant set of attendants, and sadly not one of them made up for the lack of professionalism the others showed. No priority boarding, they proceeded with boarding the first half of passengers all at once so rather confusing."
Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, inflight entertainment limited, temperature on aircraft fluctuated a bit. We were also an hour delayed in take off with no communication."
Pros: "All went well !! On time friendly staff ."
Pros: "I liked the high-tech adjustment on the seats but i am 6ft2, 200 lbs (in good shape) and I have Parkinson's disease. The seat was just not roomy enough and I had to get up at least once an hour."
Cons: "The crew was very understanding and kind. The aft head was very limited in space too. A little more room would have been most welcome."
Pros: "The food and service were great!"
Cons: "flight was canceled and I have not heard back from SAS"
Pros: "Everything. Nothing ever goes wrong when I fly SAS which is why I seldom don't. And if something does go wrong their manners and spirits are high and they make sure everyone is still happy and comfortable. Best service in the airline industry."
Cons: "I like everything."
Pros: "food was delicious and I liked that they give everyone a full bottle of water at the start of the flight; plane was new and updated"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and just a giant mass of people funneling in; tv show options only had 1-3 episodes and not entire seasons"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and on the cross continent part of our flight we had dinner and breakfast served. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "I had read several horrible reviews after I booked my flight but I was pleasantly surprised. The check in and boarding were smooth and had no issues. The seats, though not overly large, we're comfortable and not tight. The food was good and service was fast and efficient. Overall a good experience."
Pros: "I loved that there were a lot of different movies, TV shows, games, music, and more to choose from- all for free! Then there was a dinner- not bad at all-, a snack later on, and breakfast too, all included. Headphones if you needed them ( lifesaver there as I had temporary misplaced mine), a blanket, and a pillow. The crew was really polite, and there was never more than one person in line for the bathroom."
Pros: "They gave us blankets and pillows. Each seat had its own entertainment system but it only worked with the earbuds given out by the crew and the controls were cumbersome to use."
Cons: "The plane was hot and stuffy the entire trip. There are no longer individual controls for air. It was so uncomfortable and we were hot a sweaty the whole flight. The crew said that there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "We were eventually rebooked in the class we paid for."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no notice. We were rebooked in economy class when we paid over $5,000 for business class tickets, and told we would "probably" receive a refund for the difference. after much prodding, asking and begging, we were finally rebooked in a flight on Lufthansa the same night. That airline was upset, though, because SAS did not call them or notify them that we had been switched to their airline."
Pros: "Outside camera view, update on airplane location and ETA, seats were nice."
Cons: "Hate to sound entitled, but the movie selection was really poor. I flew on a connecting flight by Delta that had 10k+ movies and shows to choose from so that spoiled me."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled causing a domino effect of plans. I spent the evening and morning canceling and trying to reschedule plans. Your airline rebooked me for a flight the next day that ended up having air filter problems. I lost 3 days of vacation from the 10 total I get a year and from the 8 I had taken for my vacation."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Pros: "I got to my destination all in one piece which is what really matters most."
Cons: "The crew was completely rude. They banged my knee with the food cart and didn't even apologize. The seats are so tight and the people in front of me had their seat in the reclining position the entire flight."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the staff was friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "I was really cramped in my seat and was unimpressed with the food."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly crew. Would fly again!"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "The free, in-flight movies, the in-fight dinner, and the friendly, multi-lingual staff were GREAT commodities."
Cons: "I was in economy/SAS Go class, so it was nearly impossible to get more than one or two hours of sleep on a long flight, (i.e. about eight hours). Maybe they should reserve the seats with extra leg room for those who actually need it, and have the seats recline even further."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The food very good. Toilets inorder and clean, even just before Copenhagen. In Chicago i had to wait about 30 min tor a wheelchair. It seemed that noone wanted to go to termimal 5. A very nice young man finally came, he gave me frindly and excellent service. ALIS"
Pros: "Everything worked well."
Cons: "Movie selection could be lager."
Pros: "•Food was good •Wide variety on entertainment system"
Cons: "•Second bag was $120 •Boarding by group number would be more efficient"
Cons: "Not enough room to work on laptop."
Pros: "Easy flight, nice crew members, no issues had here"
Cons: "My luggage didn't show up for five days of a 7 day trip from a direct flight! SAS was completely useless by phone, email, and Facebook.... They set up a phone line that nobody monitors and had my luggage in-country for days before even sending someone to deliver it"
Pros: "Wide seats with excellent leg room in exit row- a bottle of water waiting at or seats-- we love the two seat configuration --attendants ready to serve any need with a smile."
Cons: "Bought our tickets from Kayak and as a result had a very difficult time upgrading seats."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "My luggage did not follow me to Geneva as it was supposed to do. I hope it will come today in Annecy where I am staying."
Pros: "Wonderful service! Flight attendants kind and thoughtful. Once in terminal 5 (from terminal 1) a Sas gate agent escorted us to flight since our previous United flight was so late"
Pros: "The flight crew (flight attendants are the best I've encountered in terms of tone and hospitality) cleanliness, the food, frequent offers of water, your own TV and numerous options for entertainment and ability to track flight"
Cons: "Like the sleek style but still wish there was a little more leg room"
Cons: "My long haul flight was delayed by two hours and ten minutes. I only had 2 hours and twenty minutes between flights at CPH. When we landed, we were assured our flight would be held. I got off my first SAS flight with 15 minutes to make it to a gate 20 minutes away. I will point out I was going to another SAS flight. I booked it, even running when I could. My flight took off without me even though I was only three minutes late and had been assured the flight would be held. At least 12 other people were in the same boat. My rescheduled flight had me do yet another layover and I arrived in Warsaw a full 6 hours late. All because SAS was incompetent to hold their flight for a few minutes."
Pros: "Free upgrade to SAS Plus, what's not to like!"
Pros: "The Plus Seating was really good"
Cons: "Late take- off and landing. Indifferent flight attendants. Two of my children were bullied into giving up their bulkhead seats to a couple with a child. We had to pay extra for those seats and we were given no compensation."
Pros: "The plane was brand new with comfortable seats that had adjustable headrests. This made sleeping very easy. I was impressed with the food and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The seating area was cramped making it difficult to move around, do work or view the screen.I know this is typical of coach class but I still don't like it. The selection of movies was adequate but smaller than I'm used to. There wasn't much in the way of music to choose from. Only one choice for jazz and classical."
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old and really dirty. no televisions. I booked a premium seat, but was assigned a middle seat in economy. Not sure where the glitch took place. Cabin crew was friendly though. ALSO, SAS/United booked my connection through O'Hare, giving me about 1.5 hours to clear customs and security...I was only able to make my flight due to some nice people who let me cut lines and a lot of running through the terminal. Generally annoyed with the experience."
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight, and had space to lie down. I skipped the dinner, and the stewardesses did not wake me up at all, inspite of their serving most people on board. When I woke up close to landing, I asked for a cup of coffee, which the stewardesses made for me promptly. The flight was smooth, and the good night's rest was refreshing."
Pros: "Entertainment system and choice of movies was great."
Cons: "Seats have become to small and crowded together. A new plane but it looks like the last inches were taken to compress the coach seats closer together."
Pros: "I liked that it was comfortable and that the crew did not constantly make announcements or wake you. They made boarding easy. I loved being able to utilize the lounge. My 4 hour layover was easy and relaxing."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight, the flight attendants were extremely nice and answered any questions I had. The pilots did a fantastic job getting me to my destination safely. Boarding and getting off the plane went smoothly. I will use this site again for my next flight 5 star service"
Cons: "I was a little disappointing as to how much it costs to upgrade your seat, seeing that there were very few people in 1st class and business class I would have liked to upgrade for a more comfortable trip, but $400-600 is way too much to pay for an already expensive trip."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work."
Cons: "Rude Check-in staff were unhelpful when I missed my flight to Stockholm due to long TSA lines at ORD (despite checking in 3 hours prior). I was pulled from the TSA line by SAS staff only to learn I was going to be admitted on my flight. I was then scolded by SAS staff back at the check-in desk for holding up a "plane with 200 passengers", that I would have to pay $153 to rebook on a later flight (to Copenhagen) for circumstances beyond my control and treated poorly by two staff members unprofessionally."
Cons: "Weather did not cooperate, not airlines fault...."
Pros: "That we made it safely."
Cons: "Seats extremely uncomfortable. As soon as someone reclines the seat in front of you, all leg room is shot down. Crew was not top notch"
Cons: "It's as tight as WOW airlines and they are out of business. Knees crashing into the seat in front of you. Fly first class or a different airline."
Pros: "The check in and boarding was easy. I imagine if you were only going to Iceland for vacation this airline would be fine- just remember to bring food on board- one of the very few airlines not to serve food on transatlantic flights-at least you do get one checked baggage allowance."
Cons: "It was my fault not to book my flight earlier with another airline. I have taken this trip several times and every airline I’ve taken previously uses newer planes and serves some food, Icelandair charges large fees for even snacks!The engine noise IN the plane was quite disturbingly loud."
Cons: "An included breakfast would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and friendly"
Cons: "Food Selection could be GREATLY IMPROVED!!!"
Cons: "Even though we were not rushed between flights, our luggage didn't make it onto the plane."
Cons: "The crew didn’t offer me a drink"
Cons: "Please provide good and reasonable price inflight food. Also seats were not comfortable."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "I had to cancel my trip and was not able to or even reschedule even with flight insurance. I'll never utilize this airline/company ever again & am getting the word out. This airline/company like most are greedy & inconsiderate with their customers."
Cons: "I couldn’t book a seat or check in. I had to check in at the airport and my check in process was not smooth. The seats were incredibly small. The crew was not friendly"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable; no complimentary snacks."
Pros: "I love that the crew hands out water bottles as passengers board the plane. I also appreciated that during the drink service, one of the flight attendants not only gave me a drink but offered to refill my water bottle as well. I hate having to ask for water (especially because it usually comes in those tiny cups), and I also hate having to be dehydrated during my flight."
Pros: "Good leg room for an economy flight"
Pros: "There was a USB port to charge my devicw"
Cons: "The service was minimal, they only offered water when you got on the plain and once at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding and deplaning was very smooth."
Cons: "Limited legroom, cabins could be more accomodating."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "No spirits unless you buy. Bring food or you ll starve"
Pros: "Good service and good seats"
Pros: "People were nice"
Cons: "No food even on a transatlantic flight. Seats small"
Pros: "Good entertainment."
Cons: "Only food for purchase on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Getting through security and boarding was very fast and efficient. Left 15 minutes early since plane filled up so quick."
Cons: "The flight is six hours and a complimentary meal is not provided. Planned to buy their hot meal but they ran out halfway through the plane. Having enough food for the whole plane is a must."
Cons: "Leg room for days! IN ECONOMY!!!"
Cons: "Should feed folks on the flight, even a snack."
Pros: "Lots of room, nice blankets, clean plane."
Cons: "Had to pay for food for a flight over 5 hours. Only 1 free beverage."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very little space, no confprt Had to buy food on a very lpng flight. Movies were very old with little choice."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "I paid a ridiculous amount for it"
Pros: "Comfort was good as well as refreshements"
Cons: "Representative at JFK told me my connecting flight to Brussels would be delayed as a result of the first leg being delayed. Upon arrival to KEF I discovered my second leg departed without me. Please be sure that your representatives do not LIE to customers as it is misleading and unnecessary. I usually have great experiences with this airline and this misinformation was rather disappointing."
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours and stuck on the tarmac with little to no updates. Needless to say, we missed our connecting flight to the final destination and were not treated kindly upon arrival by the "help" desk. I am an experienced and regular traveler, but I will most likely never fly Icelandair after this."
Pros: "Flight in Saga Class was excellent. And, use of BA lounge at JFK was a real plus."
Cons: "Security was a pain with no TSA PreCheck."
Pros: "I really appreciated the USB port built into the seat so I could charge my gadgets. The flight wasn't packed so I didn't feel claustrophobic. It was a fantastic experience there and back."
Pros: "Flight crew was really nice, attentive, respectful"
Pros: "Nothing except watching deadpool."
Cons: "The flight was extremely uncomfortable. Almost no one was able to get comfortable enough to sleep during an international overnight flight. The plane's cabin.temperature was extremely hot, and made sleep or even general comfort impossible to achieve."
Pros: "Safe and pleasant."
Cons: "I arrived my destination 24hrs late. 2 unplanned stopovers. Terrible experience."
Pros: "The flight was in time"
Cons: "No dinner or breakfast include."
Pros: "Had a great experience with Iceland Air from JFK to KEF. The ticketing agent was helpful, courteous, and prompt. No complaint with the check-in process. The plane was clean and comfortable with friendly staff. The flight was ahead of schedule and we even arrived at the gate withiout any issues. Would definitely fly Iceland Air again!"
Pros: "Good service. Good onboard entertainment. Good seats"
Cons: "I wish I had more leg room"
Cons: "Although I paid for a confirmed seat and chose my seat 6 months in advance, when 24 hour check-in rolled around I was told I had been moved to standby and would thus only have a seat if there were any left once everyone else had checked in. I had to wait until I arrived at the airport the day of to even find out if I had a seat. There were only two left when I checked in, so I just barely got on the flight. I had originally chosen a seat next to a friend traveling with me in the middle of the cabin, in the end I got a seat in the very back of the plane- no room in the overhead bins since they were reserved for flight equipment, couldn't recline, and was right by the kitchen, so it was too noisy to sleep. When I called customer service to try to fix all of this, in the middle of explaining my problem (after waiting on hold for an hour) I was told to stop talking and that it was the rep's turn to talk. In addition to not getting my problem resolved, he hung up on me! Worst treatment I've ever received on an airpline, and I've flown thousands of times on dozens of airlines. Once this trip is over I am never flying Icelandic again!"
Pros: "Check-in was efficient, and staff at the counter was friendly"
Cons: "No food for an international flight"
Cons: "In flight entertainment systems did not work. Service came once very late into the flight. Our flight was delayed, and when we asked about our connecting, we were told over and over that the next flight was also delayed, but upon arrival we realized it was not... We missed our second flight and were rerouted through a much more efficient airline."
Pros: "I liked the idea of having a layover in Iceland."
Cons: "Really, this airline sets a new level of bad amongst a skyfull of many bad airlines. It's no longer worth the little money saved (very little) to fly on this airline."
Pros: "Crew pleasent"
Cons: "Delayed almost 3hrs Ny. Delayed in Iceland also. Kept apologizing Seats extremely uncomfortable for 1st leg of flight Delayed again in Glasgow and delayed in Iceland. Let us off plane in Iceland in cold waiting for bus to terminal. Terminal very crowded"
Pros: "Cabin was new and spacious. Good free entertainment selection. Free checked bag."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours"
Pros: "Nice clean aircraft. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and drink not included"
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "you had to pay for everything...."
Cons: "I spend a lot of money on tickets and it seems like a glass of wine would be a nice gesture by the airline to say thanks for coming, we are glad you are here, relax."
Pros: "Comfort of seats and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "No food served MThe USB port did not work coming back and going only one side of the speakers was working"
Cons: "My tv screen wasn't working even after an attendant restarted it for me :( other than that everything was fine!"
Flight was delayed because pilots were late. If crew rest is required, then simply change the time of the flight to allow sufficient time for crew rest. A deliberate delay, communicated, would allow the passengers more time as well. Air Canada is either the worst airline or in a serious funk. My last five trips with AC have resulted in lost bags, damaged bags, or delayed fights. Terrible, terrible organization at the moment.
On time, good service. Food was not as described, entertainment choices were old, limited.
Cons: "I missed my flight that day i was not happy at all"
Cons: "Plane was many hours late. Departure time not on terminal screen. Extreeeme delay on shuttle from United terminal. Sidewalk closed for construction. TSA Prechk not on boarding pass printout. No shuttle behind security from Term B to Term A. Plane left earlier than announced on notification apps. DCA website=6:25pm Final call at 5:47pm only word DELAY on term screen with 4:10time."
Pros: "All the staff were very helpful, even having boarding passes ready for us for our Vancouver connection to Portland."
Cons: "I'm 6' 7", so for me, economy-class seats are usually the closest I come to being tortured. The food was just OK - not what I normally eat but I'm sure it's fine for others."
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Seats are so narrow you have to huddle to one side to avoid physical contact with large passengers seated next to you."
Cons: "Air Canada sucks. Not only did they delay our flight by 2.5 hours, it took them nearly an hour to get our baggage claim!"
Cons: "The vegetarian meals, they were not enjoyable, we actually couldn’t eat them. I wish we had not gotten vegetarian meals as the regular breakfast was a choice between pancakes or omelet with fresh fruit, which where both vegetarian. They need to make a difference between vegetarian and vegan."
Pros: "On time; efficient; great aircraft."
Cons: "A child threw up in flight behind my wife and the crew let the parents clean it up. I thought the crew should have been more proactive."
Pros: "everything went by fast, a lot of turbulence but the pilot kept us in check the entire time."
Pros: "That we survived and finally got our luggage the day after we arrived."
Cons: "1) That we went to Toronto, but our luggage went to Montreal. 2) That my wife had to stay up the whole night calling everyone in their call center to find out what happened to our luggage. 3) We were charged for selecting our seats in the flight reservation process. 4) We were misdirected by an Air Canada rep for our return flight and this caused us to miss our connecting flight as well. 5) We ended up spending more than 12 hours at the airport for flying from Toronto to Washington DC."
Pros: "The only person who who tried to relax customers waiting to board was the pilot. Flight was delayed. No updates on monitors, no crew at desk. The pilot was first to arrive and had no information but was engaging and joked with all the passengers just standing around. He was our only assurance that flight was still going. He had same attitude on the plane and seemed determined to get us home eventually."
Cons: "No communication from airline. The flight was delayed but we only find out because we show up to gate and nobody is there. No counter agents. When they eventually show up, there is no explanation. Just acted like everything was normal."
Cons: "The aircraft was so small there was not enough room for even most standard size carry-ons. The crew were not patient and gave passengers attitude for trying to bring their carry-ons onboard. On the way back from Toronto, we were sitting on the runway for more than one hour waiting for "de-icing". If this is a recurring thing, why not time the arrivals and departures better to avoid making people sit there, disconnected from everything and waiting? Also the screen on my "entertainment center" was broken but thankfully I had my own book to read. Air Canada has not had the most welcoming crew or most up to date fleet in my experience; I fly with them mostly because of their cheap fares. I guess "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch"."
Pros: "I usually have a smooth experience with Air Canada. Haven't had any problems on board. Unfortunately I had a bad experience with my baggage."
Cons: "The check-in person said my baggage (oversized, and a keyboard) would make it through to my final destination even though I had another flight on a separate reservation. I specifically asked because I wanted to know if I needed to pick it up when I landed after the first leg in Toronto. He said I'd only have to go through customs and my bag will make it all the way home to Vancouver. Well, I felt weird about it and when I got off in Toronto I noticed that my baggage receipt said Toronto on it (not Vancouver). I decided to forego the connections gate because I was unsure. Lucky that I did because lo and behold, my keyboard bag was waiting for me at baggage claim. Had I trusted the check-in guy, I would've possibly lost over $1000 worth of equipment. That's not something that can easily be forgiven."
Pros: "Crew very friendly. In-flight refreshments & Entertainment provided."
Cons: "Cramp seats."
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "the crew are super friendly. even on a little plane from DC-Toronto they had entertainment options which i wouldn't have expected. boarded quickly and landed on time. nobody bats an eye at my wife's weird beverage requests."
Cons: "the cabin of the plane on the return flight didn't have any air conditioning running during boarding and it was uncomfortably hot because it was about 85F outside. the crew only bothered to inform us of the issue when a poor hungover guy behind me asked about it because he was suffering... as were we all. plane didn't get comfortable until over 30 minutes in, at which point we were beginning our descent anyway."
Pros: "Ludovic was fantastic!"
Cons: "charged me for my bags; employees were surly."
Cons: "The plane was sitting at the gate for about an hour before we boarded (for a flight delayed by over an hour). Yet Air Canada didn't bother to go through the cabin and pick up garbage left in seat back pockets. The water in the washroom didn't work."
Pros: "Crew on the flight were very patient, understanding and friendly. Ground staff were the exact opposite. Agitated, temperamental and unwilling to help or find solutions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily the crews fault. But frustrating as our flight both to and from Washington was delayed both ways."
Cons: "Terrible flight. I should have driven instead. Flight was suppose to land at 12:30pm but due to computer malfunction we landed at 7pm."
Pros: "It was a good experience flying on Air Canada. The flight was on schedule, smooth flight, flight attendants were friendly."
Pros: "The courtesy of the attendants. Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The leg room."
Pros: "Love these guys. Moved a whiny baby away to a another row ;)"
Pros: "We got to destinations safely"
Cons: "I was worried that we won't make it to the land. I guess it was windy, but the plane was shaking too much"
Pros: "I loved the whole experience. The food was decent and the flight attendants were great and accommodated me with all my necessities. I also enjoyed the entertainment that was accessible on our personal screens and the entire flight was smooth."
Pros: "Nice and relaxing."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "crew was helpful and nice, especially in the terminal which is hard for mom to get around. If you need a wheelchair remember to ask beforehand. We hadn't so we had to wait sometimes while they located one for us. As we had long layovers (so mom could rest) this wasn't a problem for us, but with shorter turn around times it could be an issue."
Cons: "people were rude. couldn't lean seat back and it was a red eye so I had no sleep for 25 hours. WAY too NOISY for a red-eye flight which also didn't help with rest."
Pros: "nothing particularly spectacular. The entertainment on the place is much better than most (since most don't have it) for such short flights."
Cons: "The place was delayed for over an hour for a 'maintenance issue' - what I dislike is lack of information being shared from the plane to people at the gate. Also when we are delayed for the airlines fault - customers should be given something - anything - a small voucher, or even a drink ect., this is not a weather issue. I think airlines have too much power making most terrible at customer service - air Canada is one of the worst ones."
Pros: "Excellent service on board, and excellent neighbor passengers"
Cons: "Being unable to check in on line and being assigned a middle seat."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Terrible service."
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't as friendly or willing to accomodate"
Pros: "We got in a little early. More room than many in regular economy. All employees encountered pleasant and competent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind other than the normal air travel has led of security."
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Had a technical difficulties 3 times in a row. Had to be cancelled and put on the next day and again same thing over and over. So missed all my connections. Cut short my vacation. Will never flight air Canada again."
Pros: "Got to spread out onto two seats since flight was not crowded."
Cons: "Food options. No inflight seat with entertainment screen."
Cons: "Not giving us an update on why the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Super polite crew"
Pros: "Food and service."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "As thecflt time was short, i cannot say much but the leg room was ok."
Pros: "Everything went well including the smoothness of the flight."
Pros: "The flight was canceled very close to departure time and I was bumped to a flight leaving five hours later. Missed my train connection in Montreal and had to rent a car and drive to Quebec. Since I go to Canada only rarely, I ended up essentially losing the money I spent for train fare and having to pay another $145 for the rental car. Got to Quebec at 11:30 p.m. instead of 3:55 p.m. Not happy."
Pros: "1) Skycap service for boarding at Reagan National was exceptional. I requested wheelchair assistance for this return flight and the attendant gave 100% service, getting me through security and on to the boarding gate lounge area in short order. He was very pleasant and very helpful. 2) The pilots did a good job of flying, The flight was smooth as was the landing. We left Reagan a few minutes late but arrived at Pearson 16 minutes early. I liked that!"
Cons: "1) I paid extra money for a "preferred seat" because my recent hip replacement surgery required that I have ample leg room while sitting. Leg room for the first row econonomy seat I got was barely adequate. I felt cheated out of the $15 I paid for the seat (which should have been complimentary, in my opinion 2) Food service was terrible. For a 1 o'clock flight, having to get to the airport 2-3 hours ahead of departure, meant that I was in need of some serious food, not the tiny package of pretzels and the cup of tea I got. Even a couple of cookies or a muffin would have been a better offering. 3) The wheelchair assistance that I requested did not materialize for me on arrival at Pearson. I felt so cramped from sitting that I was eager to get up and try to walk, no matter how slowly, the distance to Customs and through to the exit gate to wait for my ride home. That's what I did, and I never saw a wheelchair attendant coming with a wheelchair as I exited. That is poor service! I am comparing this to the excellent service I got with American Airlines on the first leg of my trip from Toronto to DC."
