Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Cons: "6 hours late. Unacceptable."

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."

Cons: "Tv"

Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."

Cons: "Bad food"

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."

Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."

Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"

Cons: "Gate attendant was extraordinarily rude"

Cons: "Delayed two hours"

Pros: "Everything was Excellent"
Cons: "Excellent job and keep it up"

Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "Staff friendly,efficient and courteous. On time. Different snacks. Prompt service. Power source each seat worked."
Cons: "Gate area for flight change filthy. LAX gates 31-38. Garbage overflow with no seating. No entertainment option on flight."

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "This time the tea was nice and hot!"

Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"

Pros: "Crew member was grumpy, not friendly and did not give eye contact"
Cons: "Friendlier service and more organized to get on plane. All zones weren’t called and then announcement came on saying last call. Also not enough room for bags. Crew member was on phone when we arrived to plane. No explanation on why but made me feel uncomfortable about our safety."

Pros: "Quick boarding"

Pros: "There was more legroom than I expected."
Cons: "Departure was delayed by hours due to the Air Canada computer systems going down. That made it an even later redeye, but the cabin crew insisted on waking everyone up to serve dinner at 2am. Boarding in Toronto was a mess, and the details about what was wrong were very sketchy."

Pros: "Great staff!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could be better. I would have preferred in flight entertainment on my personal device via WiFi that I’ve seen on other carriers"

Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Seats are so narrow you have to huddle to one side to avoid physical contact with large passengers seated next to you."

Pros: "Crew is good. Friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Food is okay. Once hour later getting into the air but it seemed as if this was a Toronto Pearson airport issue as I'm always delayed out of Toronto"

Pros: "The flight was running late due to technical difficulties but they did take good care of us. Even the rescheduling of the connecting flight was easy."

Cons: "Not enough room for everyone’s carry ons even though websites clearly state the allowances. very small plane. No snacka offered on almost 3.5 hour flight only drinks."

Pros: "I got to sleep flat on three seats as it was half empty."
Cons: "It was an half empty aircraft and I still had to pay for my seat."

Pros: "When I got sick, staff were friendly, helpful and soothing until the arrival of the ambulance. They made me feel much better during a very stressful situation."

Pros: "We arrived safely"

Cons: "My seat was GTE. I didnt know till the last minute if I will be able to get on a plane. How does the airline decide which passenger won't have an assigned seat? Is it legal to overbook a flight? There was something wrong with a plane which caused a chain of delayes, that I can kind of understand but wouldn't like to be on standby ever again, too stressful."

Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"

Pros: "Pretty much nothing, this goddamn company has so little to compensate for the great inconvenience they provide in mismanaging our flights."
Cons: "I was delayed significantly for both flights on my round-trip and all Air Canada can offer is 15% off my next flight with them. What an embarrassment this company is to be the official airline of Canada. They should change their name to Air Rouge and allow some other company earn Canada in the name. What absolute trash honestly, if you like delays because the plane has a technical problem and they can't even sort out a back up plane within 6 hours, at their headquarters with all these hangers and planes at their disposal, then at least you'll get 15% off your next delayed flight with them."

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: "At least the entertainment systems worked this time."
Cons: "I've never thought that airplane food was bad before, but they ran out of the main options and I was left with macaroni and cheese. It was bad."

Cons: "Lost luggage but no contact person was at CMH airport and next day no phone calls from airline nor website does not get update so we had no idea where the luggage were"

Pros: "We paid to upgrade our economy seats, so there was leg room and the seats were roomy (we were immediately behind the first class area). Service is pretty good. Not great, but pretty good."
Cons: "The food was terrible! We know airline food is usually not great, but come on folks! I will cook spinach pie for all and bring it next time! The lunch was ok, but the snack (bad chocolate cookies) and the dinner (hot pocket type thing) were really bad and terribly unhealthy. I skipped lunch because I bought it from the airport because on the the way in I tried the meals and knew it would be bad...Entertainment was even worse! I did the AC rouge site with my iPad. The movie I chose was interrupted every 4 minutes for commercials-the SAME five commercials mind you-AND every time they stopped, the movie would start from the beginning! Ridiculous really...."

Pros: "Got to pls 2 hours early which was fine. Ground crew and service at Turks and Caicos was AWESOME! Helpful, friendly couldn't ask for better. Flight crew also great:-)"
Cons: "PLS is a tiny airport that needs to be added on to accommodate the huge population that is coming through. Just be prepared for a bit of funky."

Pros: "The airplane was clean."
Cons: "The airline is so cheap they didn't even offer us a bag of pretzels during a five-hour flight."

Pros: "Nothing stood out as being too great. I was too pissed off from the delay to really notice any good."
Cons: "We were delayed about 2.5 hours. Ridiculous."

Pros: "The plane was comfortable, the boarding easy, the flight pleasant, good views."
Cons: "Plane employees did not explain what the declaration card was meant to serve. I left mine on the plane by mistake, partly due to complete ignorance of its purpose. Please either put the purpose on the card or have your flight staff explain what passengers will need the card for, once they get to the next inspection point. Don 't take this for granted!! The long walk from the point of deplaning to the center of Pearson Airport was unexpected."

Pros: "I've always had adequate flights with AC. No one goes over and beyond, but everything is as you would expect. A smooth flight."

Pros: "Very friendly staff at airport. Saw we were flying with children and were able to put us on stand by to fly sooner."

Pros: "They afford a civil and enhanced trip on an Express flight. Something AA and other airlines consistently fail to do."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and pleasant on this flight!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, entertainment choices need more variety. The overhead bins ran out of space very quickly."

Pros: "Everything, good food, good people, good times"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after we already were sitting in the plane for 1.5 hour."

Pros: "Having the leg room of the emergency aisle"
Cons: "29f is marked as a window seat, it is not. It's an emergency exit. No outlets were provided so I had nowhere to charge my phone. My on flight entertainment system was stuck in the out away position. I was very sick and the emergency exit had a terrible draft upon landing"

Pros: "Crews were very nice. I also liked biscuits."
Cons: "Ground staff was not as nice as the crews."

Pros: "Excellent service on board, and excellent neighbor passengers"
Cons: "Being unable to check in on line and being assigned a middle seat."

Pros: "The staff at Toronto were very professional"
Cons: "We have not received our luggage. We have been told it was given to transportation company and nothing yet. Called back and told company did not have drivers to deliver! We were assured luggage would be with us on the next day flight after being put up by airline."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Felt like spam in a can."

Pros: "Got to spend the night in Toronto unexpectedly."
Cons: "Due to Air Canada's I missed my flight to Amsterdam. I missed out on a day of sightseeing and having fun and Amsterdam instead I spent a day in Toronto. I was able to get on a flight 24 hours later. This missing connection happens routinely with Air Canada, for some reason they have not managed to fix the error."

Cons: "Stuffed like hot sardines in the boarding area. Canadian customs take a long time for transit people"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Did not appreciate not having a movie screen. Renting an iPad for such an expensive flight is not good business."

Pros: "Our flight was delayed about an hour and a half because of earlier delays in the day and the ground crew and pilot kept us fully informed of the situations as they evolved. Because of the timely updates I did not hear one person complain in my earshot range. Apart from the delay the service was great, as always."

Pros: "Initially I chose Air Canada because the price was better than United. But the hassle was not worth it."
Cons: "Rouge plane was dirty. Flight attendants gave incorrect information regarding immigration forms that caused us problems after landing."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 4 hours due to Air Canada fault, no crew at the gate to provide updates, forced to gate check all carryons, missed connection AND rebooked connection. Canada was lovely, too bad I can't say the same about Air Canada."

Pros: "Fast"

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "We were delayed because the plane was late from Toronto, and were told this when we all began to check in up front. When the staff finally did come to the desk at the gate, they still maintained (and rather rudely to some of the other passengers) that the plane would be there by 7-- turns out the plane got there about 7:30, rebooking flights that were going to be missed was like pulling teeth for some of the passengers, and we took off about 8 (1 hr 40 mins late)."

Cons: "We were late for our flight from London to Toronto because we checked on the Kayak website that morning only to find out it would be delayed 3 1/2 hours. Air Canada told us to only look on the AirCanada.com site. Why would Kayak put that on their website if it was not true? Stick with the facts. We missed our flight and caused us much stress going standby for the next flight out of London."

Cons: "Flight to TOR was delayed due to multiple maintenance issues on >1 aircraft in TOR, so it didn't leave for BWI until past the original departure time. Needless to say, we missed our connection to Paris. Agents were great in re-ticketing us thru LHR to CDG, gave us info on who to talk to to get bags realigned, went to that agent who said system would automatically update the bags. Upon arrival in Paris, bags were not there, will arrive on the flight today from TOR. Since we're going to Normandy we are driving out to CDG, to pick up bags versus waiting at the apartment for a delivery."

Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The crew was informative and attentive."

Cons: "Delayed, emergency landing, 3 hrs late arrival"

Pros: "The crew on board was WONDERFUL. She was so cheerful and clearly loved her job. What a way to end 2015 and start 2016 (didn't get her name)."
Cons: "The plane was very cool but VERY old and loud. Nevertheless, seemed well-maintained and I felt safe."

Pros: "The attendants were really on to of everything. They checked on me at very regular intervals and asked if there was anything else I would need often. The did was really good in premier economy seating and that seats were comfortable."
Cons: "There was not a good way to check in online for my flight as I am not specifically a member of air Canada miles, however I am a star alliance member which they honor. It just does not allow you to check in online and preselect your seats. Also the booking did not take into account my known traveler number so I did not receive tsa pre check clearance like I normally would have."

Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."

Cons: "Never made it to destination"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"

Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."

Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"

Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."

Pros: "We liked our friendly and attentive flight attendants, and our safe travel to our destination. Thank you!"

Pros: "Everthing, except the typical cramped quarters."
Cons: "The cramped seating"

Pros: "I lie the variety of movies available."
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Flight landed earlier than scheduled."

Cons: "United check-in at IAD was chaotic. Worst process I have ever seen."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was loud man behind me (laughed INCREDIBLY loud) The crew knew him so they did not say anything to him."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."

Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."

Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."

Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."

Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."

Pros: "All fine, except delay"
Cons: "2.5 hours delay: plane needed maintenance and then more of that, a were unloaded. Took another plane."

Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."

Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."

Pros: "On-board WiFi was a nice touch, but redundant as there was no way to charge your electronic devices"
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle. Had to bring your own headphones... WTF? Children's meals requested for my 6-year-old were practically inedible. "Breakfast" consisted a stale, chewy croissant (which I believe I am still trying to digest a week later...) and yogurt. No USB port to charge electronic devices"

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"

Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"

Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Easy flight, no issues."
Cons: "Little more leg room. Eye mask would have been nice."

Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus and still was too uncomfortable to sleep."

Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "No connection anywhere, efficient direct flight, on time, and comfortable"
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I didn't like"

Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent. Much better than most of your other ones."

Pros: "Seating arrangement"
Cons: "The delay and the worry of the door condition"

Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "My Bags were sent to wrong flight and now still waiting for my luggage. Trying to call the numbers to track my bags and the number is always busy. I don't know when I will have have my bags. It is very frustrating"

Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."

Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."

Pros: "The United crew were extremely pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Lufthansa's website was confusing and their agents contradicted one another as we unsuccessfully attempted to reserve seats. No in flight entertainment was available"

Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."

Cons: "Older plane. Entertainment was poor and limited. Food wasn'the good."

Pros: "Food was a bit better than I expected. Videos kept going out. Staff were great. Plane landed well!"

Pros: "that the plane landed in one piece"
Cons: "it was late 1.5 hours it badly was overbooked hand luggage hysteria lack of aircon while on the ground overall attitude of crew"

Cons: "The plane was old. Entertainment screen too small and no way to restart a show. No AC power sockets at chairs. I was sitting at back of the plane and at the time food came there was no choice - they ran out of food options. Also, the plane storage bins were too small to fit small bags."

Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."
Cons: "Closeness of seats and worn out touch screens on seat backs resulted in people behind us constantly kicking and pounding on our setbacks throughout the flight. Cleaning crew did not do a thorough job, leaving trash and used chewing gum on floor from previous flight."

Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."

Cons: "Small cramped plan. Seats did not recline."

Cons: "Flight was canceled and announced at midnight"

Pros: "The mango sorbet"

Pros: "Crew were gracious & helpful. Plane left and arrived on time. Frequent offers of beverages."
Cons: "There was no space for legs and feet. Rows are too close together in economy. Only my left foot could extend forward - a metal box was bolted to the floor where a right foot would go. Seatback pockets with magazines, headphones, etc take space that knees require. Then when my front neighbor fully reclined for 7 hours, I was really pinned in (middle seat of center section). It can't be healthy to be physically restricted for so long. Very uncomfortable. Ryanair seats packed this close (for much shorter flights) don't seem to have floor obstruction, and eliminate the pockets and recline features which helps."

Pros: "Good stuff Dave"

Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised by leg room in coach"
Cons: "More water needs to be offered more often"
