They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem.

We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."

Pros: "Crew is friendly, flight was smooth and timely."
Cons: "Why doesn’t economy class have a passenger lounge for passengers with really long layovers? I had a 15 hour layover and nothing to tide me over during that time. Ridiculous.

Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."
Pros: "Service courtesy helpfully"
Cons: "I could not get pure vegetarian food as i am a strict vegetarian"

Cons: "Took flight attendants some time to clean up, not responsive to call light, seemed overwhelmed somehow."
Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."
Pros: "The A380 equipment is beautiful and spacious even in coach. The changing ambient lighting added to a great positive experience. Food and service was excellent.

Pros: "it was nice trip with emirates, You have excellent services Thanks"

Cons: "Eithad charges for seat selection now! Not seats with extra legroom or any other perks. But any seat in Economy if you select it 24 hours before departure, anywhere from $25 to $45. Seat selection is free if flight departure is less than 24 hours away but available seats are all random."
Pros: "The flight was surprisingly empty compared to flying to Abu Dhabi. I had an entire row to myself. I was able to lay out and sleep peacefully without worrying about the traveler in front of me leaving their seat back. Highly recommend Etihad airways!"
Cons: "Checking was slow at IAD and flight got delayed in Abu Dhabi and there was not good communication on delay."
Pros: "I enjoyed the services, the crew and the food and beverage"
Cons: "The WiFi services. I ordered the lite service for $4.95 and the 30 mb was finished in less that 10 minutes. Not sufficient"
Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"
Pros: "short lay over in Abudhabi. Flight was on time."
Cons: "At Abu Dhabi airport my mother had to change her plane , where assistance for elderly and wheel chair was extremely limited . Also the food on the plane was not as good as the food service on most international flights."

Cons: "Crew was bad/ food options were horrible/ boarding wasn’t very comfortable/ space in the aircraft was bad/ entertainment was limited/"

Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was good about the flight"
Pros: "My first meal offered a lamb and rice dish with carrots and currants that was most tasty, while the second meal included a nice vegetarian rice dish. They were both very good and a good introduction to the wonderful food of the Middle East."
Cons: "I had an issue with the sound on my entertainment unit that caused it to stop every time I paused a viewing. I had to exit then return to the show, which restarted where I paused it, but it was annoying. It also would have been nice to have a solitaire card game to play online. Overall, though, the variety was well thought out."

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, remarkably comfortable seating—every aspect of the trip was above my expectations"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "On the boarding time thy check you handcarry wait and on that time if you have extra wait they want to throw I don’t like that because on the counter if they check and tell you have exsis wait you have a option to give your extra stuff to your attendant but they give hard time to pas Sanger’s I really hait that sevice"
Cons: "The restrooms were not clean and stinky."
Pros: "I liked all my special gluten free food!! It was very good!’"

Pros: "Overall trip was fine but nothing to be thrilled about with it."
Cons: "-my longest flight was completely full and I was sitting between 2 good size men which was just not comfortable. -I asked if I can a seat swap but crew seems to not care much about it. -No snacks in between for a change. I asked for something to munch but there is nothing which they can offer. finally I had to ask for a fruit or something. I am sure nuts, crackers is something they will have on the flight. - they don't give out socks or toohbrush/paste or anything like that. no eye pad incase if you want to sleep peacefully. -crew was very frin"

I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."

Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible???

Cons: "had to take another flight, ticket agent was able to change me to a different flight on JAL. however, JAL could not access the ticket info and ticket agent would not take my payment. result was missing that flight, ticket manager told me it's my fault and tough luck no refund. American airlines told me the same, ended up losing my money for the ticket purchase. i booked another new flight with another airline direct. worst experience in my life using kayak."

Cons: "A lady in AA counter at AA DFW counter. She was rude and not helpful. at all."
Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."
Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."
Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Complainers. Shame on the parents who raised such pretentious a--holes."
Pros: "Crews are very friendly, thank you"
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Pros: "There was quite a large selection of movies. New releases to old classics. All free."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by a few hours due to mechanical issues but they did give us free food and drinks once we were on the plane."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "The food was not too good."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Cons: "no food"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss."

Cons: "The seat was kind of tight."
Cons: "Didn't have a whole lot of movie options relative to other airlines Food was basic but ok Zone boarding was not a good idea"
Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies and entertainment. I had brought a book, podcasts, and games, but I ended up just watching movies."
Cons: "The seats recline so far that the headrest screen ended up way too close to comfortably watch movies or effectively use the tray. The people in front of my wife and I kept their seats fully reclined, even during the meals, and it was very uncomfortable. One of the meals had a pepper sauce that had such a strong smell that I was nauseous until the end of the flight. While the chicken meal I ate was fine, there wasn't much chicken at all."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Taller so hard to get comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, always offering water and anything else we needed. The captain was very good about warning us about turbulence. Boarding the plane was quick and efficient."
Cons: "I felt the aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly. It's disheartening when your seat/area isn't clean and you're stuck there for 13 hours."
Pros: "The Dreamliner was the latest version. Wonderful staff and Toronto is a great airport"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly. The air conditioning was on point. Good music. I listened to the new slowdive for the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I remember not liking. It was great."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Brand new aircraft"

Pros: "I had room!"
Pros: "Nice plane, solid food."
Cons: "Waaaay too hot."
Cons: "While booking the tickets I was told that my luggage will be checked in till my final destination but I had to collect them at Narita airport. I had to cancel my plans of sight seeing at Tokyo downtown due to this."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"
Pros: "I was concerned the length of travel. The flight and staff were very enjoyable. The meals were tasty. Will definitely book again."
Cons: "Food was terrible Flight was not full and I tried to get bettuer seating but I was told there is none available. Then after boarding they had someone else with the same seat number. Very strange"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours at Narita and then again in Toronto for another 2 hours. Plus my family and I were tired from the 11 1/2 hour flight and when we get to check in the attendants were very rude, almost like it was a bother to them when we asked for help, it was probably because I interrupted their conversation. Every airports kiosks are different and that was our first time going through there so we just wanted to make sure that we did it right. Then when we get to the gate where we're suppose to leave out from, I asl the attendant there who I can talk to about forgotten bag on board. She then goes to tell me that I need to call the 800 #, Abd I said but I'm here at the airport can't they just bring it to this gate and she then got an attitude and said that they couldn't do that and I would just have to go to the lost and found which was downstairs. I was on the line with lost and found before I went to ask her any questions, and I mentioned to her that I had been on hold for 30 minutes, and she said they weren't going to answer. So I then asked hire am I suppose to get my bag then? She repeated about calling the 800 #, and at this time a lady runs up the counter thinking that she missed her flight. She shows the attendant her phone and is hysterical thinking that she missed her flight and the flight attendant told her just go sit down it's not here yet you didn't miss it. The customer then starts yelling in another language and the flight attendant just tells your just go sit down calm down and go sit down. She's doing all of this while I'm standing there she pulls out her phone and then told her co-worker I should put her on YouTube the way they do us. All the while I'm standing there because I still have more questions and she just ignored me like I wasn't even standing there. I more than likely will never fly this airline again, I'm paying for their services and to get treated like this, no thanks!!"
Pros: "On time departure Food was good"
Cons: "Flight attendant should be friendlier"
Pros: "service, friendly attendants, amenities"
Pros: "It was a mostly empty flight, so there was plenty of space."
Cons: "The only bathroom was locked for landing, which I understand is a policy, however a woman sitting next to me REALLY had to go, and being at the back of the plane while everyone was leaving, could not go ask for it to be unlocked. I felt bad for her... Also, it was not clearly written or easy to understand where our gate was at Cleveland Hopkins. It was a small flight, but it could have been clearer."
Pros: "The seats were unbelievably squishy. And the crew was quite rough."
Pros: "Nicely managed and well served."
Cons: "None. The food and entertainment were rated 3 stars as there wasn't any for this flight."
Pros: "they had many movies. I enjoyed watching two of them."
Cons: "Food was just okay."
Pros: "Seat number was displayed on the monitor of the sheet."
Cons: "Japanese movies, TV was small."
Pros: "The flight from DC to Toronto was late around four hours and after we got on the plane We went back and we were waiting at the airport while get more fuel and which repaired the fault on the plane. so I was late for my next flight to FrankfurtSo I was put on a flight to Frankfurt with a connection in Lisbon.In the end, my suitcase was lost and I got it only two days later. Never I will no longer use AirCanada small planes !"
Pros: "Great airplane service, people and amenities"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and didn't even tell me a reason. They couldn't even make reservation for hotel. Hotel sent me back to airport because i didn't have voucher which AIr Canada guys said they can't make one? Everything didn't make sense. And they told me not to come again. They took like... whole day to book another flight. And i had hard time understanding what they were saying."
Pros: "I appreciated the timing of when they fed us. It was almost like they read my mind each time I thought... Hmm I'm getting hungry. The movie/tv selection was excellent."
Cons: "I felt cramp, which it's economy class so of course. But in the back there were tons of open rows and I wish they had spread us out."
Pros: "On the whole it was a pleasant experience despite the flight being late."
Cons: "I thought that the flight being delayed by almost 2 hours was terrible. That should not have happened."
Pros: "Nothing - they were immature, unprofessional, nervous, unhelpful, and visibly shaken by relatively side problems."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours but not technically cancelled, which the ground crew blamed upon the flight crew and vice versa. The failure to cancel caused us to be unable to rebook, and subsequent avoidable delays arising from Air Canada's ineptitude caused us to be two,days late for arrival. The problem was solvable with some simple rebooking, but the ground,crew failed to assist, then the flight crew, when we finally left five hours late, was Impersonable, unhelpful, uninformed, and utterly unprepared. It was a terrible, second rate, poor quality experience and I would not recommend Air Canada to anyone. Your airline needs serious training in Professionalism and responsiveness."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "I had never flown before the day I flew with Air Canada, and the flight I had with them was an international flight to boot- about 13 hours. I was very comfortable in my seat, and caught a fair amount of sleep on the plane. The food was pretty good for "airplane food" reputation, and Air Canada's in flight entertainment is abundant."
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Pros: "Everyone was super polite"
Cons: "Not a single flight during my entire trip, including flying back home, departed on time."
Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."
Cons: "I was not able to board this flight. And it was such a disappointment and a shocking first for me. I reached the airport and on being checked at the counter, I was told that I cannot board because I don't have a Canadian visa. It was shocking to learn that I needed visa for a 1.5 hour layover. The website should give a prompt or should share the requirements. And all my ticket money got wasted."
Pros: "Decent movie and game selections."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unhappy, sassy and got frustrated easily."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed and we were not kept informed. In fact, the airport boards still displayed that this flight was on time, which was not correct. I kept getting emails of a change in schedule, but no reason was given by personnel at the gate. This was really a bad situation for me as I was meeting my daughter in Toronto who was flying alone with her infant son and she needed my help."
Pros: "Not much. Maybe the boarding is not bad and the flight is on time"
Cons: "The crew is rude and unprofessional. Really low efficient and the seats are uncomfortable. Too tide for a 14 hours flight"
Cons: "They stole some of my property of my checked bag. Bunch of thieves. Arrogant people like Sue from Vancouver. She is also nasty ugly."
Cons: "We waited nearly two hours AFTER WE BOARDED THE PLANE for a flat tire to be changed, or so we were told. In typical airline fashion, we were told several times that the delay would probably take about 15 minutes, turning into nearly 2 hours. In combination with the change I described above and the 9.5 hour flight to Tokyo, we were completely done in for 2-3 days after we got to Tokyo."
Pros: "As a 6'5" guy, I was worried about spending ten hours on a plane. Air Canada made the flight enjoyable with comfortable seats (even in the economy class) and high quality flight attendants."
Pros: "It was better fright than expected. We didn't enough time to enjoy Canada airport . We made a onetime fright but took long wait at customs."
Cons: "once again quantity and quality of food was below that provided by the five other international carriers I have used in the recent past"
Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue. The food was horrible. I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
