Pros: "The cabin crew was helpful and professional"
Cons: "Having better time performance . The first leg of my trip was so delayed that I almost missed my connection."

Pros: "Everything was good starting with boarding to disembarking airplane. Crew was respectful and the airplane seemed to be clean in general. I’m flight entertainment is excellent and made the flight seem a lot shorter."
Cons: "Boarding pass has specific alphabet zones but boarding was done via cabin number which was slightly confusing. I didn’t realize that zone E is part of cabin 2. I think more clear instructions should be given."

Pros: "this is the airline"

Pros: "The planes are made for humans not for monkeys as in some other airlines. Leg space was way better."
Cons: "I wish you could make your ticketing categories simpler. It is too complicated and cumbersome. May be you have a new category of over 75 olds."

Cons: "We ordered special meal, and it was even confirmed in the boarding pass but it was never delivered on board.... attendant said they did not get any special meal"

Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Pros: "Crew and plane are great"

Pros: "It's a nice and short flight so can't ask for too much. Quick to board and deplane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by close to an hour. Being a late flight it made for an overly long travel day."

Pros: "Seating lacked the ability to recline in any way. There were no snacks or drinks whatsoever"
Cons: "The seats could recline. On a top tier airline I expect comfortable seating that declines for the price"

Cons: "Being on time. First it was a problem with the plane but that was fixed quickly. Then it was something about de-icing the plane which took over 40mins which made my son and I miss our connecting flight. The weather didn’t just happen. They should have been prepared."

Cons: "Boarding the plane was a hassle as well as delays to Clean up and fix seat belts. Very u coordinated crew as well no one paying attention to what one was doing."

Pros: "i likes that drinks were free"
Cons: "i shouldn’t have to pay for headphones"

Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."

Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."

Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous."

Pros: "Food and entertainment were non-existent since the flights were so short and on smaller jets.....so I guess 1star isn't really fair, but there was no option for N/A Flight attendants were friendly. VPS-ATL lead attendant was very sweet to a passenger in front of us who was on her first flight alone with her child to go to her fathers funeral in the Philippines. She also thanked a soldier for her service. Love these little touches."
Cons: "I'm so used to the nice screens with free tv games and flight tracker and really missed that on this trip. I'm glad I decided not to pay to upgrade to comfort + this trip for the first time in a long time."

Pros: "Crew was amazing! Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Need more than 1 option for breakfast"

Pros: "left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "no legroom even in first class."

Cons: "My luggage is lost."

Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."

Pros: "Late, crowded, bumpy"

Pros: "Delta is always great to fly on, but this was not the best.."
Cons: "We had delays EVERYWHERE. What is usually a 40 minute flight from Birmingham to Atlanta took an hour & 25 minutes. Once I landed, I had to connect allll the way on the other side of the airport. Once in air, things were fine, just hot. However, due to weather, we had to fly for an additional 45 minutes in the sky. The crew was as nice as they could be in that situation just overall a frustrating."

Pros: "The flight staff were very attentive and courteous. I was asleep when drinks were passed out. The stewardess went out of her way to get me a drink after I woke up."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice big plane."

Pros: "Seating was very nice and a free move was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding is a free for all. People cannot find their seats and put their luggage in the overhead. Board the plane from the back first"

Cons: "That we did not have a seat assigned"

Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice crew. No food or entertainment so I couldn't rate those. N/A should be a choice"

Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time."
Cons: "After boarding everyone they made us wait for another plane to arrive to take passengers on our flight to Syracuse since we had many empty seats. The wait was way too long and completely unnecessary. Not only did they keep everyone on the plane for a long time but they made us very late."

Pros: "Short no frills flight that was comfortable with no issues."

Pros: "new hi speed wifi, seats"

Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."

Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "Modern plane from ATL to BOS. On board games were a fun distraction."

Pros: "Upgrade. Comfort. Gourmet Oatmeal Breakfast."
Cons: "Need more cooking shows (British Bakeoff would be fun) or something besides what has been there for too long."

Pros: "great service and a quick flight"

Pros: "Food was not offered on a short flight, the one star does not mean bad. There was no other option same for entertainment"

Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Cons: "Seating close and uncomfortable especially next to a big ol' boy."

Pros: "Free games and movies in the headrest TV. Really cool"
Cons: "It was extremely hot and uncomfortable on the plane."

Pros: "John at Destin/Fort Walton Beach airport (VPS)was excellent! Helped us overcome some problems & get us seated. All worked fine from there."
Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."

Cons: "See above airport connection disaster...."

Pros: "don't know it's first flight delta's fault or next flight china southern's,arrive 3 days,but still couldn't find our two bags"

Pros: "Very clean aircrafts"
Cons: "Don't like how you have to pay extra to pick your seat. This is something that budget airlines usually do, so I was surprised Delta did this. I was unable to sit with my boyfriend, because we elected not to pay additional fees to pick our seats, yet there were many open seats on our plane. I would choose United over Delta, as they don't force you to pay extra to sit with those you are traveling with."

Cons: "I was scheduled to sit next to my husband but at the last minute, our seats got changed and we were split up, having to both sit next to strangers. Not acceptable during a pandemic when we had our seats booked, confirmed, and checked in."

Pros: "Took care of us, gave us snacks and drinks, and pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Plane almost caught up in flames. Gas was filled through the entire plane. Had a big scare."

Pros: "Reasonably comfortable, quick flight."
Cons: "Missed connections due to late flights - twice."

Pros: "Plane wasn’t full and left and arrived early!"
Cons: "Offering some kind of beverage"

Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and cramped"

Cons: "It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all"

Pros: "the crew was great, the food was okay, the movie selection was awesome, overall really happy with the flight."
Cons: "as far as a seat in coach goes, you're getting a pretty good deal. obviously flying 14 hours across the pacific is pretty rough and we would all like to fly first class, but as far as coach goes, I cant complain. only downside was that I had an exit seat, so tons of leg room, but couldn't use the entertainment while in taxi, takeoff and landing, where I could've squeezed another movie in, but its a safety thing and a fair trade for the extra room."

Pros: "Very uncomfortable seating even though paid for preferred. Not enough space for carry on."
Cons: "Crew service"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the turbulence was minimal. Overall a smooth flight, and the attention of the flight attendants was great. We arrived about 25 minutes earlier than what we had to, which was great."
Cons: "Having a variety of food options would be nice."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Not much other than lower fare"

Pros: "Crew was nice and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Well on the way to Florida I had an entertainment screen that froze and in this flight the screen was blue needing maintenance so it was out of service too."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing. At least I made it to DC but what the f. They made us board late and then told us to inboard and blamed the weather when other planes where just leaving they couldn't tell us they didn't want to work anymore and then 6 hours after we were able to board. Really bad."
Cons: "They should have offered food vouchers instead of the bad junk food they offered which wasn't enough to feed all the passengers plus the supposedly delay because of the weather was low when you could see planes leaving every half an hour."

Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No idea. I thought everything was good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After this I need direct flight from DXB to LAX"

Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"

Pros: "My money clip was stolen."
Cons: "Have better security and stuff at airport. To be more open to people needs."

Cons: "Seemed disorganized getting on"

Pros: "Pilots and staff on plane briliant"
Cons: "Counter staff at boarding gate. Not friendly, not helpful. Very disappointing"

Cons: "Jammed plane. At origin we were asked to check carry on at the gate to save overhead space. Bags never made the plane. We had our stubs but when we arrived at destination or at layover none was able to help. Bag tags had been removed at origin and bags were opened to determine who they belonged to. Plus wheelchair had armrest broken off."

Cons: "1 hour delay boarding then another hour waiting for a Pilot!?"

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "It was fine"

Cons: "No TVs. We were set to be 20 minutes early because of the wind, yet they still made sure we got to the gate later than the original flight time."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Service, quality of food, availability of food choices"

Cons: "the flight was delayed which kept me nervous as I had a connecting flight in the international terminal which I almost missed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The spacing between rows, the aisle and size of seats were terrible. I will go back flying British Airways and Lufthansa!!!!!"

Pros: "Good free mobile entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was unbelievably hot the entire flight. Air vents did not cool the plane at all. We were all sweating the entire time."

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The economy fare.....why are people who travel together not put together if possible? Why are all the seats At the back next to the bathroom??"

Pros: "New entertainment system, and variety of selection. Plane cleanliness as condition."
Cons: "Seats are stiff and uncomfortable. Pretzels and only pretzels for snacks."

Pros: "Latam lounge in Bogota"
Cons: "Pay for premium seats, not enough leg room a rip-off"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "There’s nothing better than a non-stop."
Cons: "Oy, they offered an $800 credit if I let them bump me. But they had no way to get me to my destination! I guess instead of asking for volunteers, they should have asked for people who really didn’t want to go. Then the flight attendant announced, “we’re really low on food”. Really? This is a SEVEN hour flight!"

Cons: "Space on coach seats was awful."

Pros: "Boarding was okay, flight was on time departing and arriving."
Cons: "No USB chargers in the seats for SEA-MIA segment of trip, but they had it for short hour flight from MIA-SJU? Long haul flights need the USB outlets!!"

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "Las pantallas en cada asiento con entretenimiento ideal para los niños u también los adultos y además de ofrecer variadas bebidas dieron un snack."

Pros: "I liked the easy boarding and exiting process. I liked the crew, they are all trained very well and seem to enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "A lot of the planes have not been updated and have poor comfort and entertainment. This is unfortunate, due to the price that we are paying for this travel."

Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use."

Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."

Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."

Pros: "After I pledged 25 years ago I would not travel with AA, this recent trip to Miami was delayed 30 minutes going to Miami and one hour goin back to Panama."
Cons: "Ticket counter very long in Miami. Kiosk did not work. Flight delayed in both routes."

Cons: "Seat was awkward. Staff didn't respond to 2 calls of with the button. Air seemed exceptionally dry and was oddly warm."

Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and I liked the film selection."
Cons: "I was placed in the back of the plane and subsequently they ran out of the food option I would have chosen. There was only pork left which I cannot eat. I was left hungry and the stewardess was rude about it- I understand that she was likely tired as I was in the last row but it's literally her job. The flight was also pretty turbulent- which is usually worse in the back of the plane."

Pros: "Timeliness of departure and quality customer service"

Pros: "The flight was on time and comfortable"
Cons: "That I paid for luggage when most people waited until they were told while boarding so they checked the baggage for free even though it was obviously too large. Maybe it should be checked closer when checking in before going through security."

Cons: "Ticketing agent was rude"

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were great..."
Cons: "Food was very poor. Entertainment was awful"

Cons: "Air Canada changed our seating on day of travel. I had ordered tickets over a month in advance and scheduled seating for my wife and I on our 3 leg flight. Air Canada changed our seating on the 1st and 3rd leg and we were no longer sitting together."

Pros: "Food OK, seating OK, crew professional."
Cons: "Air Canada, whose flight this was, was understaffed and disorganized in Milan. No kiosks for self service, no identification of which line to wait in for what, lines spilling over into common area with >100 people and their luggage waiting. Waited almost an hour just to get a boarding pass."

Cons: "The flight was late arriving, so consequently we had to pay a taxi to hotel, as shuttle had finished for the night. Air Canada staff let people know 10 mins prior to boarding that we needed the app to view movies in-flight. Most people couldn't download quick enough, & airport Wifi was not optimal"

Pros: "Quick and organized airport and boarding"
Cons: "Old plane uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Speedy boarding, awesome pilots and crew as always."
Cons: "Was not offered food on the flight even though it was more that 3h:15m. By the time I got to my destination I had not eaten lunch and it was already past dinner. I tried to ask for food but was only offered something to drink, not even a snack (no warm nuts or anything)"

Pros: "Thank goodness there was lots of room on this plane, makes it much nicer"
Cons: "Old plane, and business class is just ok. So sad that Air Canada is only flying this route with Rouge... they just are ok. Boarding was a gong show - they blocked off the area with little posts to keep people organized and were boarding a big flight to Tokyo right beside us. Horrible."

Cons: "They wouldn’t wait 10 minutes for us to arrive on our incoming flight."

Cons: "Again very disappointed. No food, no flight monitoring and no tv access. Felt very "cheep". Cop o see idea far far better."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours,"

Pros: "There seems to have been improvements to the check in and boarding for disabled disabled passengers like myself at Pearson. Much easier to drop off luggage and move quickly to the wheelchair pickup area. Staff were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Spacing between seats continues to be a problem especially for disabled clients. Because I was travelling alone, I was asked if I would move to accommodate someone with a pet carrier that would not fit under the seat they were in. I declined but wondered how they were allowed to board with an oversized case. Also seemed strange to ask a disabled passenger to move."

Pros: "Flight was ok overall. Staff were nice."
Cons: "I don't think there was enough crew on board to serve all the passengers. Water was only offered once. I did get to watch free movies from Vancouver to Toronto. However, you had to pay for entertainment from Toronto to Costa Rica"

Cons: "Delay in YUL...5 mins turned into 60...almost missed travel in SJO to final destination"

Pros: "Once on plane all OK"
Cons: "Check in unhelpful to being rude by ignoring people and avoiding getting advice from higher ups. Worst service I Have experienced in 60 years of air flight three times a year ,at least"

Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "No movies"

Pros: "Disable passenger here. They were very helpful and accommodating"

Pros: "We were given a $10 meal voucher in Toronto for the 2hr delay, nothing was done for us in windsor after waiting close to 5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Windsor to Toronto for hours the. Again from Toronto to San José."

Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Crew on flight from Toronto to San Jose were friendly. Crew on home flight very aloof."
Cons: "Did not know you should pre book food. They ran out. Very frustrating. Said they had breakfast food and snacks. All that was left by the time they got to our seats were chips and nuts. And they didn’t seem to care. Entertainment worked better on way back. Could not get it going on way there, even with crew assistance. Line ups for check in in San Jose were crazy. Over 40 minutes."

Pros: "we had a very good seating distance in row 15"
Cons: "the cabin service was simply bad: very limited meal offerings, drinks were not cold, flight attendants were pretty arrogant."

Pros: "Coming home"
Cons: "price of Air Canada Rouge not worth it, they should put this flight back to the regular air Canada flight. I can go with United and have a much more comfortable flight home"

Pros: "I got from point A to point B"
Cons: "I lost over a day of my trip because a flight was cancelled and wasted 6 hours trying to rebook with no help from the staff, who were extremely rude. Everyone on the canceled flight had to be aggressive at getting a new flight booked because there was no help. Every time you asked an associate from Aur Canada for help, the passed the problem off not taking any responsibility. If your name is on my ticket, then it's your responsibility. Worst experience traveling by far. Also lost over a day of my expensive trip that I've been waiting to go on for awhile and saved my money for a year. I lost hundreds of dollars in events and hotels. Avoid Air Canada if possible"

Cons: "The movie selection was not very good. No recent movies available. Also in the beginning, about half and hour, the entertainment system did not work."

Pros: "Chairs and the space was very good."
Cons: "Crew and the food was very poor. This is the only long international flight 10 hours that served a night grate dinner and the crews got disappeared the rest of the flight and no breakfast."

Pros: "See previous"

Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."

Pros: "The flight arrived about 30 minutes early. Also, it left a little late. For me, the less time on the plane the better."
Cons: "Guy next to wanted to charge phone a laptop in USB port in front of me b/c his was our of order. This worked out OK but in a small space it's not so good. He was bare foot too. Take of your shoes but wear socks, please....Plane was not hot, actual a litter chilly."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew"
Cons: "Extra charge for checking a suitcase, extra charge for choosing your seat (all seats are the same) boarding crew did not uodate as to continuous delays in flight, no headphones"

Pros: "The entertainment on board was nice because there were a variety of movies and things to do."
Cons: "The staff were often slow expecially during the boarding process."

Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours, no information was provided on the delay and further delay at the gate waiting for the crew."

Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."

Pros: "Got seats beside washroom so they don't recline. Makes it a tiresome journey. Fast check in, great pilot"

Pros: "Seat were comfortable (however the struggle is when you have someone with long legs behind you...)"
Cons: "Entertainment was using the app, they could have had a sign at the gate so those of us that didn't have it could have download it before boarding."

Pros: "Plane was on time and manned appropriately with a single crew member. Gate checked bag was handled with care."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable with a good amount of leg room and width. Not the friendliest crew and was given equal when I asked for splenda. Not the same thing when you are allergic to equal and who doesn't carry splenda these days? I did get home safe and sound which is really the most important part."

Cons: "The business class layout on the Boeing 787 was confusing. The seat was narrow and uncomfortable for my 250lb frame and 6 foot 2inch height. There was now head rest for my neck. The air circulation in the center of the aircraft was poor and too hot while my wife across the aisle had good circulation and temperature. The leg room was inadequate as well. Is this Boeing 787 specific? The selections on the movie list were too small."

Cons: "This is not an Air Canada flight, is a Rouge flight, meaning there is no service, no screens, not even blankets on board. I didn't know that until after confirming my reservation, and it makes all the difference. For a low cost flight, the service is ok, but it shouldn't be advertised as Air Canada at all."

Pros: "All passengers and crew arrived alive. Flight attendants were very helpful and nice. Price for this trip is much cheaper than comparable flights with other airlines."
Cons: "Extra charge for any checked bags at all is awful. Couldn't get a meal on flight, even for a price. Just miserable tiny snacks. Flight left late and arrived late, apparently because schedulers didn't bother to make allowances for deicing at previous stop. In-flight Air Canada app didn't work either on my ipAD OR MY LAPTOP."

Pros: "The staff were friendly and the airport is nice."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, delaying us. Baggage storage was overused on the plane and therefore took even longer."

Cons: "On a 4+ hour flight, I was really surprised that there were no snacks or food included in the ticket; only paid "cafe" options."

Pros: "I breathe threw my neck & I'm used to putting the air blower on my neck for extra air. These planes had none. We were surprised. And room between the seats was tight."
Cons: "Above"

Cons: "Very long wait in Toronto security. Trying to get a connecting flight and the Montreal flight had been boarding for 20 minutes before we even got through TSA. Very anxiety provoking! Very large plane that was filled...for a 1 hour flight. It took longer to board and unload than the flight itself. Makes me want to drive on these short hops."

Pros: "The Air Canada ground and flight crews did the best they could in a bad situation."
Cons: "Where do I start? Maybe by saying that I'm really not a complainer. I'm really not. I know there are understandable, although not always pleasant, occurences and situations that cause or contribute to things. But this shuttle flight was a disaster of poor airline planning. The 1.5 hour flight kept getting delayed again and again and again. The assigned gate got changed 4 times and we found ourselves having to walk with our bags from one to another. It finally took off at 12:30 at night with an ORIGINAL departure time of either 8:40 or thereabouts. You're talking about a 4 hour delay. Weather? Raining, but nothing that was serious. It was just, well, raining. No explanation was ever given for the delay although, uhh, complimentary bags of pretzels were handed out. I felt bad for the ground and flight crew. They had to deal with us less-than-pleased passengers and, really, the delay was beyond their control. Which leads me to believe poor scheduling by Air Canada of available planes was a reason. It was all very, very bad and, given a previous flight 10 days ago that took 5 hours instead of the scheduled 1.5, we'll never use Air Canada again."

Pros: "On time."

Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."

Cons: "Second flight in a row delayed almost 1.5 hours."

Cons: "People could be friendlier"

Pros: "The price of the flight was excellent and the service totally reliable."
Cons: "Small aircraft for a fairly long overnight flight. Made it difficult to rest as the flight was full."

Cons: "I was really upset that I found out the baggage handling broke my luggage even though I specifically marked fragile."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours first without any communication, later with very unclear communication. Spent multiple hours at the airport just to have to fly out next morning at 6:30am. Wasted day, wasted night. Delays can happen, but according to the finally communicated cause this could all have been communicated early on (crew not available in Cleveland, that was two flight legs earlier)."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Fixed arm rest - could not raise up"

Pros: "Ground crew at VPS was very helpful during a long delay."
Cons: "Delayed ( four hours) because United, or whatever regional flyer they use, did not have a first officer to fly our plane to VPS. Of course, we missed the last flight back to Amarillo. Now, I’m missing a day of work. This flight is now costing me a fortune, as well."

Pros: "It was a stressful experience, arriving late for ur connection flight and find out u cant get to ur destination. I would say that they did compliment us with a very nice hotel so i apologize for the bad review i understand u cant do anything about the weather but was amazed with the hotel"

Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"

Pros: "United staff were ready in Panamá to handle the missed connections, with onward booking already handled and hotel vouchers ready for distribution upon deplaning."
Cons: "Late boarding and long wait on runway to be able to take off, thus ensuring connection in Panamá would be missed. Given that one runway was closed due to wind, this is something outside the control of United. Nevertheless, allowing a connecting flight with only 30 minutes between flights would seem to be overly risky, thus any delay upon departure will ensure a missed connection."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Amazes me how the airlines can shrink legroom. I'm 6'5" & had an economy middle row middle seat. Needsless to say, I was stuck actually & figuratively since it was a full flight."

Cons: "No food.long flight if you come from a connecring flight. They serve pretzels which exclude people who don't est wheat. Serve an option of mixed nuts.breakfast was the ssme a cookie serve a rice cake ootion. I ordered celiac snd got the cookie on the Panama City to Asuncion flight"

Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."

Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."

Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy, repeated same commercials"

Cons: "Plane was late and missed connection."

Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "..."

Cons: "Terrible experience. Will avoid united at all costs. We arrived with enough time and called ahead. They said to run and the plane would still be there however at the kiosk, the personell was very unhelpful. They made us miss our flight, fly out the next day and didn't now help change our return flight to the next day. I called united, the booking agency and the other airline without getting any changes."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."

Pros: "The crew was super attentive and cordial."
Cons: "United Airlines has really deteriorated. Paid entertainment for an international flight is really nickle-and-diming it, especially since it was direct tv which is only available over the continental US!"

Pros: "Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight"
Cons: "Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English."

Cons: "I left New Jersey during snow storm. Flights had been cancelled on the previous days but our flight was not. It did not leave on time, had to switch planes before we actually took off. My luggage was lost. I did not make my connecting flight. Had sty over in Panama. Got to my destination a day late without my carry on ( checked at the gate...lost). Still have not located my other 2 bags. Very stressful expirence. Will not fly united again. Staff at my lay over was poorly trained at handling the situation and my luggage issue is taking a very long time to correct."

Cons: "Flight was canceled"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst airline I’ve taken in a while .. you can tel they want is $$. From charging to change seats. To have VERY LITTLE leg room (and I’m 5’2”). Charging for entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable. Crew seemed embarrassed. The crew was fine and did their job."

Cons: "bad web site lost luggage stolen items from luggage no option to wrap my luggage in plastic unfriendly staff late flight and take off"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are very hard making a 3+ hour flight pretty uncomfortable."

Cons: "A 5+hr flight and a bag of pretzels for a snack? Cheap! Unfriendly staff at Panama airport"

Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."

Pros: "Directv on board"
Cons: "No food. Delayed. Bad crew"

Cons: "The flight was canceled, terrible attention"

Pros: "See comments from the first flight"
Cons: "See comments from the first flight"

Pros: "First rate service"

Pros: "When they removed the crazy man sitting next to me and we deplaned"

Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "Food not Not any enterteinmet unless you pay"

Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "No food, no great entertainment,very tight space"

Pros: "The crew was Amazing!"
Cons: "It was hard to be on an international flight without any power options to charge or entertainment. It seems that a long flight out of the country should provide at least 1 amenity."

Cons: "I did not like that there was no food. Long flights are supposed to give some, at least a small sandwich."

Pros: "The free movies and tv shows on flight back. The snacks and free beverages."
Cons: "My baggage was lost"

Cons: "El peor servicio que he recibido"

Pros: "I had an entire row to myself."

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Much better flight from HOU-PTY. Crew was more friendly. Option to qatch free movies on my personal device is great."
Cons: "4 hour flight and only a small pouch of savory snacks and some mints! Leg room is very limited."

Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."

Pros: "Handicapped assistance was great. Our connections at from between flights was 35 minutes. We had to go from terminal B to C by wheelchair for my Dad then by electric cart to get to our next gate. We barely made it. They were boarding when we got to the gate. On our flight to our destination we were given the wrong gate and terminal. We actually were supposed to go from terminal E to B at opposite ends of the airport. We missed our connectio and had to be teschuled 6 hrs later. Then that flight was cancelled and we had to pay for a hotel and missed a whole day of our trip. These connections were paired by United no by individual choice. IAH is a very difficult airport to travel through. I won't fly United again!"

Pros: "It was indeed good experience."

Pros: "Airline personel were all very pleasant and eager to help, just not very effective"

Cons: "paid entertainment"

Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "on a 5,5 hour flight only drinks and no food, NOT OKEY - entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."

Pros: "I liked the staff and comfort the most"
Cons: "I mean is not anybodys fault but its lame that now everything has to be paid, from entertainment to food and all of that!"

Cons: "When asked if we would volunteer to give our seats away if they were needed we said yes, only to be told last minute that we would need to board and that our original seats were taken which in turn caused us to fly both legs of the trip seated apart from each other."

Pros: "Soso"
Cons: "Was good"

Cons: "Last take off caused me to to miss my connection and they had to reroute me through an additional airport."

Pros: "The food the free alcoholic drinks it was a short flight from Panama city to Quito but they gave you all the free drinks you wanted and a nice meal in like an hr flight, stewardesses were great as well top customer service, live copa, no entertainment but that's OK on a short flight"
Cons: "nothing, likes everything quick flight drinks pretty stewardesses, all my airline dreams fulfilled"

Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you downloaded an app in advance, and then, for people who had, only over USA, and after you pay for united wifi. That's poor"

Cons: "The pilots were late which cost us our departure so that we ran into restrictions based on weather. Thus we missed our connection in Panama City. United should ensure pilots are on time."
