Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "N/A. Because of bad weather on Vancouver Island, my flight to Vancouver was delayed two hours and I missed my 230p flight to Seattle. Alaska had no other flights available from Vancouver that would get me to San Diego and other later flights that day from other airlines were over booked. I stayed the night and flew out the next morning on a direct flight to San Diego. The flight was fine. The flight crew was nice, they offered us drinks and snacks and the air condition worked. The reason I included the AC is sometimes it doesn't work and that's miserable. There's not too much else to add."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and there was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was only an hour flight, so there was no entertainment. And the seats didn't recline."
Pros: "charging outlet"
Cons: "light delay. no service."
Pros: "Outlets in the planes!!!"
Cons: "Delay on one flight"
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Cons: "Lazy staff, cannot even get you water and tell you to wait for the cart. No good food options for purchase and snacks are bad. Nothing special about this airline"

Pros: "The overhead bins seemed to have more space than usual for non-checked bags."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and the flight was late. This was already an evening flight, so the delay meant that I missed the last public transit train once I was home and had to pay for a cab."

Pros: "Flight crew was ok and boarding was really quick"

Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."

Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."

Cons: "Took too long to get on board."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and then they underestimated the time to de-ice."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to econ comfort"

The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."

Cons: "My flight got delayed for twelve hours with no compensation for a hotel."
Pros: "customer siervice was great and welcoming was awesome"
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, boarding went smooth and flight was on time... No complaints!"

Pros: "Got a window seat, my luggage arrived with me"
Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."
Pros: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"

Pros: "Great staff, quick service."
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Staff is ticketing were unhelpful in straightening out Boarding process. I ask for help and the agent came over and read the computer screen to me as if that was all he was there for."
Pros: "Just to clean the cabin a bit more and the folding table tops. thanks!"
Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. I was in general boarding but I was still disappointed with the seats. Hard to stay comfortable during a 3 hour flight. Cabin temperature was a bit cool for my liking."
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
Pros: "Row to myself"
Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."
Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"
Pros: "Very funny, added comedy to the flight. Great!"
Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."
Pros: "Super helpful gate agents and smooth entry process back into the country."
Cons: "Crew on plane weren’t great. The male attendant wasn’t very understanding when a little girl had to use bathroom before we even left the gate. One of the women attendants ended up letting her go while taxing. Clearly the guy doesn’t understand kids. We could have ended up with a plane smelling like"
Cons: "I could not get through to westjet for days due to weather. Then when they called, they hung up on me as connected....back to another hour wait. Then an email. Then 5 days later to hear that despite all of their chaos there would be no changes."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled."
Pros: "No ability to change dates of flight."
Cons: "Paying a charge to change flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in the plane for 4 hours when 20 minutes into the delay the flight attendants knew they weren't going to be able to fly with us, and instead of cancelling the flight 20 minutes into the delay we sat on the plane for 4 hours while the crew knew we were not going to take off. There were a handful of infants and children (my 10 month old nephew included) and for the crew to keep the passengers on the plane for 4 hours when they knew the flight was going to be cancelled is unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Over crowded seating. Over head music that you had to talk over. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "We boarded on time, and when we were delayed by fog, we were kept informed."
Cons: "We were one hour late landing, couldn't be helped. But, it was a 45 minute wait for our luggage."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Gates were changed and I was not informed. Flight was almost an hour delay. My luggage was never even put on the plane. So I cam from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to Yuma, AZ and have no baggage, no clothes, toiletries, nothing! It is 9:14pm and won't have any luggage until MAYBE 7-8pm Monday night. It is Sunday night now. Not happy!!!!!!!! No food on the flight!!"
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great and the only positive part of my experience."
Cons: "I was put into the long line to check my luggage with 75 minutes to take off. Of course I missed my direct flight as I was put into a long line. The man who listened to me complain was very kind and empathetic and the only good part about being forced to miss my flight. "We stop loading X amount of minutes before take off" I can't remember the exact number but there was ten minutes to spare before said time when they stopped loading. Dealt with it. Not happy but at least my luggage wasn't lost. Will I fly with WestJet again? Probably. Will I expect some sort of hang up and/or inconvenience? Definitely."
Pros: "The Pilot explained his Procedures thoroughly."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "This flight and the one before we're both delayed by over an hour. What's worse is each time we ended up spending about 20-30 min slowly driving around the runway since the takeoff queue was backed up so much. Maybe not the airlines fault for that but the pilot never said a word about it and kept us in the dark. Each flight was in total delayed by several hours. It seems more often than not these days that flights are delayed and are totally unreliable. I've come to hate flying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and took another 45 min to leave once boarding was complete"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive. They still give away snacks too which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked about the flight other than the discomfort of the seats, but there is nothing they could have really done to change that!"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Small seats. Nonexistent food and entertainment option are all self provided"
Cons: "Flight was late which got us running for our next connection in Toronto."
Cons: "Being late into LA"
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing!"
Cons: "The head phone jack for my tv was broken which was annoying but not the worst thing ever because I just listened along with my wife beside me. If I hadn't known the person beside me and have been able to listen to share theirs it would have been way worse."
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to download an app for vieweing movies burning flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were super friendly. The plane was very nice and spacious, the flight was smooth and the landing was excellent!"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it."
Cons: "Flight delayed which led to our rental car gone"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "To many layovers, the gates were too far from each other"
Cons: "No choice for seating - my husband and I were seated separately"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Typical stuff, Cramped space, crappy food"
Pros: "Smooth, friendly and cost effective."
Pros: "I travel on plus and the person who was in charge of our sección was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "what i don't like is that i had to wait for my luggage an hour . causin incomvinience for me later."
Cons: "No entertain system"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Pros: "Start the flight a bit earlier than scheduled, so we arrive a bit earlier too. The flight is smooth."
Pros: "Good helpful crew. Reasonably sane boardingon a full d flight."
Cons: "1+ hour before we took off after getting on the plane. 1+ hour before we got off the plane after landing."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight left & arrived on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, more legroom than the American Airline flight"
Cons: "I prefer to have a TV to watch instead of downloading the App."
Cons: "Same comment as the previous flight ref movies. I wont take Westjet again on a long flight without movie screens. Not all old people have Iphones or laptop computers. Mike C."
Pros: "Flight was great. Calgary customs was awful. The lines were extremely long. We boarded our plane at 9:50 and departure was at 10."
Cons: "Customs at Calgary Canada was terribly slow. Almost missed our plane."
Cons: "Didn't know I needed to download Westjet app before the flight and bring my own device"
Pros: "Food, attendants, comfort, entertainment"
Cons: "Manual boarding and missing one of my luggage"
Cons: "It had over 1 hour delayed no wifi no screen"
Pros: "Crew fun"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Pros: "Gate agents were nice."
Cons: "1. Nothing healthy to buy on the plane. 2. Nasty flight attendant. 3. Small seats. 4. Swollen ankles because flight attendant wouldn't let me put my stocking feet up in bulkhead seat, which is why I purchased it. 5. Poor service. 6. Plane landed early but we didn't get to the gate until more than an hour later!"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "online checkin, fast boarding (a total of only 27 passengers undoubtedly made boarding much quicker), had extra space due to the sparse flight; smooth flight, good refreshments, pilot did a good job of keeping us updated on runway/gate status"
Cons: "on board crew didn't seem interested; empty cup was never picked up; upon leaving the aircraft (after a 30 minute delay due to a problem at our gate) none of the crew said as much as goodbye or thanks. I know it was a late flight with very few passengers, many of whom may have slept, but as such I thought the crew should have been more attentive and friendly at departure. A disappointing experience."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice don't know who's fault it"
Cons: "Almost an hour to get any luggage out is not acceptable"
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "It was a little warm and stuffy while loading."
Pros: "We were delayed while in the plane. The steward decided to give drinks and snacks on the house which in the end lightened the atmosphere. It did make it late for the Oilers play-off game which was likely very important to many of the business men on the flight."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to get their entertainment app to work."
Pros: "Nice Staff. Easy process."
Cons: "Not enough leg room , felt very cramped."
Pros: "The duration of the flight, nothing to do with the airline"
Cons: "I was forced to check a bag in when I had flown previously the week before with the same carry on. $50 spent for nothing in my opinion. Per the supervisor over head bin size does not change yet my bag was "too big" like I said I had flown literally 4 days before this trip and had no problems with my bag fitting nor did any of the flight attendants say anything. I am just annoyed. Also I didn't know that I would fly American as it's through Alaska originally, maybe that was my lack of attention to detail. The carry on situation is what irritated me the most. This is also not the first time that I've had a problem with American Air."
Pros: "Boarding lasted over an hour"
Cons: "I regret flying with American. They have consistent problems with every flight from seating to delayed flights"
Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Friendly, efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles very tight."
Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."
Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."
Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."
Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."
Pros: "Flew 1st class, everything excellent"
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was awesome."
Cons: "Missed this connection"
Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Pros: "just Ok for everything."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "Great flight, on time, seat upgrade"
Pros: "Quick little trip from San Diego to Phoenix. Crew made the extra effort to keep the plane cool despite the 120 degree temps in Phoenix."
Pros: "Slept through the entire flight, ground crew got me from gate to seat ASAP."
Cons: "Everything was good, so no problems to report here!"
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."
Cons: "Had to wait for crew delayed by weather. No gate when we got to SMF. Luggage took way too long to come off. Lots of turbulence - not your fault - but I HATE it."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Needed to return to gate to refuel after aborted takeoff attempt. Thi"
Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than one hour. Poor communications by pilots. No recognition by any crew members that it was Father's Day!!!"
Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"
Pros: "Baggage drop agent in Oakland excellent Great A319 w power outlets Thanks"
Cons: "Provide food would be better"
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Pros: "I likes that I was able to pick my seat for the same price."
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."
Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."
Pros: "They provided bags, napkins and were very understanding every trip down the aisle to the lavatories"
Cons: "Baggage pick-up facilities at Newark Airport"
Pros: "lay-flat bed for red-eye flight to Toronto"
Cons: "My seat assignment was changed without my knowledge. There was a charge for my one suitcase. Most other airlines do not charge for a suitcase unless it is more then one."
Pros: "Needs wifi"
Pros: "This time around around the crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "There used to be meals on longer flights. Now, not even a bag of peanuts."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by 45 minutes which made me miss my connecting flight. I asked the flight attendants if they could help me get to the front of the plane to see if I could catch my connecting flight and they wouldn't help me. Due to this I had to wait over 4 and a half hours at the airport wheee another 350 people were waiting for accommodations. I was in the airport until 4:30 in the morning because there weren't enough air cansas representatives. In addition, they were working really slowly because they kept getting up to chat with eachother."
Cons: "I have taken 6 flights with your company in the last two weeks. Each has had a minimum of 45 min delay. Your seats are very small. Your planes seem dated and have no entertainment system on board, oh unless I want to pay another $10 bucks for an Ipad.. Food , what food. You did not have half of the items on your own menu.. and when I bought some cheese and crackers, I had to remind the lady that cashews were in the picture too. You have a mediocre airline, nothing to brag about here."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Only able to board because someone missed flight. Delayed flight by over 30 minutes."
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "Buying wine was a good idea. It's a good cure for frustrations."
Cons: "I had trouble checking in online AND printing boarding pass at kiosk. Plane left 45 minutes late. Boarding was chaotic. Headphones did not work with entertainment system. Drink order was incorrect... I just had to pretend I was on crappy public transport for two hours for a one hour journey. I laughed out loud when they announced on flight that Air Canada was voted best North American airline. Riiiiight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Cons: "1. Too cold 2. Patron behind me was tall and his knees repeatedly pushed into my back through a paper thin seat back 3. Waited 45 minutes on tarmac AFTER landing to deplane"
Pros: "Late departure due to an incompetent airport crew (the guys who fuel the plane) . The pilot keep us well informed about the delay. Since we left Vancouver late, we arrived late and had to sit on the runway for 30 minutes until we could get a gate at LAX. Again the pilot keep us informed and apologized for the inconvenience, The staff was very friendly."
Pros: "on-board service"
Cons: "Late departures (about 30 minutes each way) with corresponding late arrivals. On the flight LAX to Vancouver due to late arrival of the plane, on the return flight supposedly because of a delay in loading luggage (the flight was fully boarded for 30+minutes before loading was completed). The late arrival in Los Angeles led to further delay as there was no available gate to accept us so we disembarked 50+minutes after the scheduled time."
Pros: "It was amazing and super easy. I cant wait to go back."
Cons: "I wish they had a meal and free checked luggage. Not the worst, but not the best part"
Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."
Pros: "Flignt from Honolulu to Vancouver delayed. Return flight also delayed."
Cons: "Pay for food"
Cons: "Flight cancelled until the next day and then delayed again without sufficient notice . Air canada hasn't offered us anything worth making up missing a day out of our vacation"
Cons: "Took us 13 hours total to get from Vancouver to Toronto"
Pros: "Love the individual entertainment & the friendly staff team"
Pros: "An incident the day of our flight left us with a pet with nowhere to go but come with us. Usually you need to give a fair bit of notice to bring a pet into the cabin but the staff couldn't have been more helpful in getting all of us to our destination. They turned an incredibly stressful day into an easy and relaxing one."
Pros: "Are they ever friendly? Concerned about their customers? It's unreal how indifferent they are to your time and comfort!"
Pros: "They arrived on time. Not much else."
Cons: "Over 4 hour flight. No food (not even pretzels). A few old movies. Flight delay with no communication. I only noticed when I was checking in at the kiosk and noticed that my one hour layover was now a 5 minute layover. Rebooked. When I arrived at destination, no notice that next flight was delayed, even though it was over 3 hours late. Thought I only had 1 hour to go through US immigrations and customs. Ran to the other end of the airport to be on time. Aircraft wasn't even at airport and flight was over 3 hours late. They couldn't have posted that so we didn't have to run across the airport? Changed gates, but no announcement. One other flyer was looking at the board and called out to the group waiting that there was a gate change. Left Vancouver at 8:00 am, arrived in Boston at 1:30 am. Won't fly with Air Canada again."
Cons: "Horrible to fly Air Canada"
Pros: "Enough empty seats that I could lay out to sleep. The price was very reasonable."
Cons: "Hard to believe in 2017 an airline can offer a 9-10 hour flight without any in-flight entertainment system."
Pros: "A wider seat due to equipment change."
Cons: "No blankets offered on a red eye flight."
Cons: "We ran to the gate to make our connection and reached the gate on time while the flight was still boarding. They offloaded our luggage assuming we will be late!!!!"
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I avoid rouge at all costs and recommend others to avoid it too. I hate the lack of screens and zero complimentary food. A pretzel would impress me but I relate air canada rouge to delta or united and always have weak experiences compared to other aircrafts."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "No flight attendant came during the entire course of the flight, even after I had pressed the button for one. One flight attendant was extremely hostile. Horrible experiencing flying to Vancouver from Vegas."
Cons: "a long 5 hr flight, they just give you a drink!!!!(they cant afford even a little bite?) Even at the time of the drink they bypass my line and we had to ask and she said sorry!! We did,nt get the usual boarding notification by e-mail 24hrs before??"
Pros: "Friendly staff n helpful. Good seats, movies available"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything even the headphones. The seat, the luggages n not even a small peanuts snack they give you. Flight are very expensive for you to pay all extra."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Pros: "Got seats beside washroom so they don't recline. Makes it a tiresome journey. Fast check in, great pilot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by roughly 2 hours allegedly due to construction at the Toronto Pearson airport. I recognize that this was possibly not Air Canada's fault but the delay was still unforeseen."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."
Cons: "I was sat next to a dementia patient who were urinating on himself and the seat all over. I endured the smell for 10 hrs. The crew gave me a mask for it. No accommodations. I did not eat or drink obviously. He had been given special accommodation or sat with a caretaker"
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"
Pros: "Generally the flight was just fine."
Cons: "Nothing stood out as being a problem."
Pros: "Loved the plane."
Cons: "I tried to get business class it was full. In general, I don't spend for business class because AC BC is so poor (horrible food, iffy seats, broken entertainment systems). But this plane was different, unfortunately I couldn't get on."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system had ads. Too many."
Pros: "Attentive crew - offering beverages repeatedly (which didn't happen at all on my flight Toronto to Vancouver two weeks earlier)"
Cons: "Crammed seating - felt much tighter than would I am used to from other international airlines."
Pros: "Getting me from point A to point B in one piece is most important, so top marks there."
Cons: "- was told to switch gates twice for the same flight (while lugging my stuff along with me) - both flights were late - flight tracker didn't work from LAX to Vancouver - just a note: on flight from Vancouver to LAX, passenger behind us was talking 5X louder then literally anyone else on the plane. I bought headphones just to drown out his life story."
Cons: "Flight was late so I missed my connection. Then my luggage was delayed by five hours behind me. Generally poor service."
Cons: "Had to pay for seat assignments when reservation made or no seat reservations. Not true on all airlines. Delta let us pick seats for free when the reservation was made. Husband had wanted a window seat and ended up with a middle seat. No free snacks just drinks"
Pros: "I would have to say Air Canada offered the "best" service, flight, crew and environment I have ever experienced in Business Class."
Cons: "Food could be improved"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Pros: "Again, I felt we had excellent service. It was a small plane and one steward, and she did everything!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed a couple hours, customs was "full" at Pearson causing more delays"
