Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and seats were comfy."
Cons: "Headphones for the entertainment centre.could have been better. Sound quality not great."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Cons: "Not force checking luggage. Not loosing tsa pre details between different parts of ticket. Allowing checking to both legs online, not just the first."
Cons: "I asked and confirmed twice on two separate phone calls that we would need a wheel chair assistance and they assured that it s notified on her ticket .. and still nothing was there for her .. she went by herself in London to the information desk asking for the wheel chair and in Lax no one even met"
Pros: "They made up some time following a long delay"
Cons: "We were very delayed and no real explanation at first. Also the wrong boarding information was given initially which wasn’t helpful"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to plane safety issues, but the crew fixed it and got us to London almost in time. I didn’t love that there were no vegan food options, and even if there had been, they ran out of fresh food by time we were served. Not great."
Pros: "new planes, good food, professional vrew"
Pros: "Service is amazing. Food is even tasty did airline food. Staff is super polite and courteous."
Cons: "Economy seats are less than desirable. I’m alarmist positive I booked premium economy in kayak. Never checked my booking and notice economy later. Could have gotten the same price for premium economy elsewhere. Super pissed"
Pros: "Crew excellent as always on BA, boarding fine, usual hassle getting to seats with other passengers blocking aisle,but when you choose to sit at the rear and the plane loads the forward seats first it's to be expected. Seats were very comfortable (much better than Virgin Airbus 330) and plenty of legroom. Food was better than on previous flights and drinks service was good - shame they ran out of wine, Bacardi and gin towards the end of the flight though! Liked the automated bag drop at Gatwick, much quicker and plenary of staff in case there were any issues."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment poor. Not enough choice, screens have seen better days too. Virgin do this aspect much better."
Pros: "On time depature"
Cons: "Little amount of snacks available Small quantity of food for the meal"
Cons: "Gate agent refused to let me carry on a suitcase that I have carried on dozens of flights (this specific suitcase) and I understand overhead limitations (I have more than 4 million air miles just between United and American Airlines). This was an A320 and I was about #10 getting on the flight. Space was not an issue. This added an hour to a 25 hour day to wait for luggage at LAX. And BA gives the agents an edge in that their test fixture has rounded corners to that a 22 inch suitcase that has hard square edges at the bottom (or wheels that make it square) won't fit in it. So the agent just points that it doesn't fit and you have to check. I was not happy from Paris to London."
Pros: "Flavor was fine"
Cons: "Out of 6 special vegetarian meals provided on 4 recent flights, all were pasta. One main meal of pasta even had A SIDE of pasta salad."
Cons: "Never took the fly"
Cons: "BA has a lot of nerve charging first-class prices for coach-seat legroom. The fact that the middle seat is empty doesn't warrant the price increase. Abominable food and no in-flight entertainment complete the picture."
Pros: "Easy flight schedules"
Cons: "Legroom in first class is a joke."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "Late. No other flights to Milan for 12 plus hours. Rerouted to a different airport. Rental car at Mxp so have to taxi back and forth. Missed tours etc. no apparent reason for being late. Weather was fine."
Pros: "- cabin staff were attentive and well trained"
Cons: "- entertainment system was tired and out of date even for economy class - seats cramped and uncomfortable especially when seat in front was reclined"
Cons: "I didn’t like that I paid for first and received terrible service in the air and on the ground"
Cons: "Seat space too cramped"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Pros: "All was easy"
Cons: "It wasn't super comfortable"
Pros: "Fast boarding despite the flight was delayed and the crew did all what they could to do a fast process"
Cons: "They didn't tell you about the delays! We have to find out through different sources"
Pros: "The crew were great, boarding was very easy."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and breakfast was poor."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late off the ground and we’d held up in the air for another 1/2 hour. Connections missed, very disappointed."
Cons: "Boarding at Gate E46 was disorganised both in timing ans execution. We were told on checkin that boarding would be early and it was late, closer to the original estimated time and then the order of boarding, parents with kids, then ExecClub and Business, and then others was ignored..."
Cons: "I dentertaintmentid not like the two hour delay. No snacks and no"
Cons: "Waited in line for 1+ hrs just to get a seat on the flight, made the situation unnecessarily stressful; aircraft very old - entertainment system screens difficult to watch, crew friendly, food not great (but on par w competitors)"
Pros: "The middle seat was empty. Handed out drinks regularly."
Cons: "Really long gap between the main meal and the snack. I was hungry enough my stomach was growling. General boarding was mayhem. On the way to London, we boarded back to front. Fewer available movies than on United."
Pros: "There was sufficient too in seating. The crew brought water around several times during the flight."
Cons: "There was no welcoming/comfort packet. That would be a small cost, but makes people feel tended. I left my sleep mask and in-flight socks because I expected British Air to provide those things as they have before. The snacks were insubstantial. No nuts, fruit, or cereal bars; only fluff. The "pizza" was tough. Not a good choice for microwaving."
Pros: "Got a window seat ad requesyrd"
Cons: "Nothing to comment upon"
Cons: "Checking into Heathrow was interesting because they have automated systems to bag drop. I always like talking to a person which I could have done but was unaware. I had printed my boarding passes which then was sent to the automated line. That being said I had an issue with my carry on it was a literally too big because of the handle sticking out. So I had to check it. One of the women there was kind and sent met back to the British Airways check in section again to check it. She said don't worry it'll be free. So I went to the assigned line and a woman stopped me and told me I needed to stand with the rest of the people in the checked baggage line not the hand baggage line. I said I was sent to this line. She said well you're going to have to pay if it is too big. I said I was sent to this line because I was told it would be free to check it. Her attitude/tone was rude. Which for me was not ok. I had just landed in Heathrow from Newark and was starting jet lag, plus I literally was able to carry on my bag at Newark. Same company! I was trying my best to be kind but she just kept insisting that I was going to pay for the bag. I then stated that I already had paid for the bag! As I had paid for 4 and only checked 3! So if necessary this would be the 4th bag. Now I would not have had to do this if British Airways had allowed me to tack on my Athens trip to my Heathrow trip. When I found out they could do that they said it would be an extra $1025 to do so. I told them that I would just go through customs and get my bags and put them on the Athens flight. Of course I get to the counter and the woman there was wonderful and told me not to worry that it would be taken care of. So thank you to the woman who diverged a ridiculous argument over the handle not fitting in the cage. Moving forward boarding was interesting as I have never ridden in a train that takes you to the plane on the tarmac. It was a little long and VERY hot as they fill them to the brim and it was a good 10 min ride with people packed like sardines. When we got to the plane boarding was quick and efficient. The seating in that plane was very much like a spirit flight for close to 4 hours. There was a lot of turbulence and the landing was a little hard but that's to be expected in planes."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Make sure you buy food before your board. Business class seats are too narrow and you can extend out properly because the leg area turns sharply. The TVs must be 20 years old on the plane."
Cons: "Seating in Business Class is not satisfactory. Compared to Virgin, American and Delta, it is sadly lacking. No shelf to put water, book, etc. lighting not good and footrests aren't easily worked."
Pros: "Crew was nice and food was decent. Flight left a little late but made up time in the air so arrived timely."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic - after having first class and preferred passengers board, it was a free for all for all other passengers, which doesn't make a lot of sense and caused a long line. Due to a malfunctioning piece of equipment, the plane was about 90 degrees during boarding and while waiting for takeoff, which was pretty miserable. Temperature was fine after takeoff. The plane itself was very old, seats were cramped, and the screens for movies/tv (and selections themselves) were very poor, which is disappointing for an 8 hour flight. There were no power hookups either, which my Aer Lingus flight a few days beforehand offered. Finally, the passenger in front of me put his seat back while the plane was boarding, making it a struggle to get into my seat while boarding and to get out of it to let others in my aisle out from time to time for the restroom. Can't really blame the last one on the airline, but it added to the misery."
Pros: "Movies and tv."
Cons: "The food was poor. The staff so so."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "My seat covering was too short and plastic part exposed. Luckily empty seat was used to replace actual seat"
Pros: "We had a ton of extra leg room"
Pros: "Impressive airplane at first sight when boarding."
Cons: "Blankets were a little bit dirty. Screen was very small compared to other air crafts. Food was... British. So it was OK. Crew could have been better."
Pros: "Nothing in specific. But good service and people."
Cons: "The kids crying"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 mins, but when I'm 2 mins late to check in the cancelled my boarding pass. Ridiculous customer service wanted to charge me $400 to change my flight!!! Never again"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Service on board was ok, staff not very friendly."
Pros: "The crew on the aircraft were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "Not BA's fault but Nairobi is probably one of the most uncomfortable airports. We paid to go into the Aspire Lounge but was surprised that BA do not have a lounge. We flew Premium Economy but didn't think we got that much extra for the amount paid. Breakfast was one breakfast bar and that was it."
Pros: "Pleasant, efficient and knowledgable staff."
Cons: "BA staff at SFO lounge have declared UDI and do not allow Gold Card holders into 1st class lounge"
Cons: "Older plane, no touch screen tv in head rest, no movies on demand, limited leg space"
Pros: "same service from AA"
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and friendly. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "The designer of the business class seats used by British Aiways is surely an acrobat who flies no longer that's two hours. And those at British Aiways who bought into this design probably don't fly at all. Passengers who are sitting in a window seat must literally walk over the passenger in the aisle seat in order to get to the aisle. Flight attendants must serve the passengers on window seats right over those sitting in the aisles. The seats are narrow, and if you're sitting in the aisle, you don't even have a space to put your bottle of water or reading glasses. I can go on and on. This is my last flight on British if I can manage."
Pros: "Crew were nice and friendly,"
Cons: "I missed my connection cause the first flight was delayed and so I had to spend the night at the girls traveling alone with 2 little children, no change of clothes! This is the second year in a row this happen to us with the same flight Venice-Philly-Phoenix. I will not fly aa next year, because it was a big inconvenience, plus I had to reschedule my work appointment as well and rearrange pick up from airport."
Cons: "The food expired the day we were on the flight- I ate the chicken salad sandwich and I was sick on the flight and the rest of the evening home. My sister who are the same sandwich was sick also."
Screens on seats and power USB outlets did not work. Very cramped and no room. Seats and plane did not look cleaned My partner and I were not seated together even though tickets were bought together. Food was unappetizing
No Air Canada rep at the ticketing desk. Spoke with United (assumed partner) and they directed me to wait in the Air Canada line. I was 2 hours early for this flight since it was international. No one ever showed at the Air Canada desk so I spoke with United again and they said that Air Canada transferred the plane to them (truth?) and pulled up my ticket. The ticket was denied due to a carry-on limitation (is this real?). United cancel the flights and started to rebook but they said they had no authority to rebook since it was with Air Canada. After 3 hours of being on hold and speaking with multiple people at Air Canada they informed me that the United canceled my whole trip and marked it as a no show (again, 2 hours early). They refused to rebook or refund.
Pros: "Clearing USA imagination in Canada was a breeze not the 2-3 hour wait you get at MCO"
Cons: "Knowing we had to get a visa for Canada"
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."
Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
Pros: "Very convenient, good schedules, pretty much on time."
Cons: "Really doesn't fit into the "didn't like" category but my boarding pass said Zone 6, however there was no Zone 6 called nor signage for it. Even the person checking our boarding passes was surprised. Just a comment really!"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, excellent foods"
Cons: "Fatigue from job"
Cons: "After a delay on my first flight, I managed to get to the gate with a few minutes to spare and the door open. The desk agent refused to let me board the plane."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "One of the meals wasn’t extremely desirable."
Pros: "Comfortable aisle seat"
Cons: "Better first class deals"
Pros: "I was able to change my flight to an earlier one saving me from having to wait 6 hours. I did not have to pay extra for changing my flight."
Cons: "I thought I was getting a good deal compared to other airlines but was shocked later to learn I had to pay extra to reserve a seat. When this was added it actually cost more. No entertainment for an 8 hour international flight! Really? Only one checked bag for an international flight. I’ve experienced much better on other airlines."
Pros: "What did I like? Not much. We kept hearing over the PA about how Air Canada had been voted Number One airline in North America in 2017 but I was blowed if I could work out why. I have travelled quite a bit both Stateside and overseas and can tell you that AC does not come up to the standard set by Qantas or Southwest here in the States."
Cons: "It felt as if the seats were even closer together than on the flight out. It was tight! It was the second leg of a flight from Taiwan and having experienced the extraordinary politeness and courtesy of the Taiwanese it came as a rude shock when the hefty AC (female) attendant banged the back of my seat, exhorting us with a "Would you guys get your seat backs up straight for meal service". The tea was pretty grim too and I suspected it had been made in a coffee pot."
Pros: "Service was efficient and pleasant. Complementary drinks and snacks were served. This was a nice surprise!"
Pros: "Flight crew was vey nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "No entertainment no snacks no checked in luggage. You have to pay to rent iPad to watch inflight movies as pay for earphones. Air Canada has become a premium priced airline with extra low cost /no frills service. Sad and disappointing. Last time I am flying with AC. Rather book cheaper airlines and know what to expect than pay a premium and get even less than the low cost option. Boarding staff was rude pushing people etc"
Pros: "We flew premium economy, and it was so much better than regular economy. Seating just two across made my wife's and my journey much easier. The crew was attentive when they needed to be, and the food was quite good. I managed to sleep several hours, which is about as good as it gets on a long haul flight."
Cons: "I was surprised at the selections available for movies and TV; not much that was appealing. Took a Singapore air flight a few days later and felt like the selections were better. But we brought an iPad and had downloaded House of Cards, so we were OK. Besides, I got to sleep."
Pros: "Awesome crew, very attentive"
Pros: "I am sad to say I have little positive things to say about this experience."
Cons: "To begin, our flight was delayed an hour into Toronto. We asked the flight attendant about our connecting flight and they said they would find an answer. It ended up that we landed just as the flight was scheduled to leave. Why they could delay pur flight but would not hold another flight by 20 minutes is very questionable. Then we got to customer service, the rep told us that we could only get on the next flight going out tomorrow at the same time which meant 24 hours lost. Of our vacation- which hotels already booked and tours already booked. When I asked if there was anyway we could get in earlier the service person told me "I should be grateful because some people have had to wait multiple days to get to their destinations." When we finally did board the flight the next day we were not served any food, no snacks, and no drink for the entire overnight flight."
Pros: "Unfortunately, my first flight was delayed (It happens!) so I missed my connecting flight from TO to Ottawa but the lady at customer service (I wish I got her name) was so good and got me on a flight leaving within the hour. The flight attendant on that flight was so pleasant and accommodating, I'm almost happy to have missed the original flight! Two huge thumbs up for Air Canada - you made my day!"
Cons: "Air Canada is horrible! They have terrible customer service. Our flight was delayed, and we were on the phone for three hours trying to get things sorted out so that we got to our tour in Egypt on time. I had a few questions on our flight, so I emailed them and received a form letter that I would get a response in 25 business days. If you have any other choice, take it over Air Canada. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Everything was good, that day was to much therbulans. Thank you air Canada"
Pros: "The trip to Dublin via Toronto on the way out was much better than the flights home."
Cons: "Delays and 24 hour layover."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and seemed willing to help."
Cons: "The cabin was very cold during the 12+ hour flight, and the food was not very good."
Pros: "Comfort of the flight."
Cons: "Food was too spicy and had too much salt. Food quality needs improvement. Asked crew about the name of a food item and they didn't know."
Cons: "Flight was late taking off"
Pros: "Crew were reasonably patient, but rather impossible to please passengers with type of flight and discomfort."
Cons: "One bathroom for all of the plane? Perhaps 1st class (tiny) has its own bathroom, but otherwise, the aisle was 10+ people in-line for the ENTIRE flight, as 1 bathroom. Really miserable for all concerned. Seats are too tight, entertainment system works only some of the time, seats old and uncomfortable. Did not seat family together (flight full). Overall, one of the worst long-distance flights I have ever had. Should not fly this kind of plane with this many people and not enough facilities."
Pros: "Seat width was good. Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Canada Air website was malfunctioning, could not check-in, pay for luggage etc. the night before. Said I had an horrible seat when I paid for preferred. 45 minutes on hold only to be told my seat was indeed preferred. Computer problems with the website, she said. Got to check in counter the recommended 3 hours early, no one there till 6 am. Then the check-in desk's computers were all malfunctioning. another 20 minute wait. Plane was small and very old. Didn't know those planes were still in the air. Not good in general for flying. the windows leaked condensation, the computer controlling the flushing of the toilets failed 45 minutes out from our destination. They did get it working just before we landed. The plane had some problem before takeoff and left late, landed late. I WILL NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE AGAIN. Kayak, you need to end your partnership with them."
Pros: "The Seat"
Cons: "The fact that no food was planned for a flight around noon."
Cons: "I had to pay for Internet despite being a Superelite customer (top Tier flyer on their program). The service was expensive and slow so I only used 30 minutes for $4. Having curtailed my work, I looked for news feeds and Rio Olympic coverage. There was neither. It spoilt an otherwise great experience"
Cons: "The flight from Montreal to NYC was late by 2 hours:("
Pros: "I really liked that there were free in-flight movies/tv and that everyone had their own screens so you could choose what to watch or you could have a map pulled up on the screen to show you how far you have travelled and how much further you have left to travel."
Cons: "There wasn't any food offered, no free peanuts/pretzels or food to buy. It wasn't the end of the world or anything but it seemed kind of odd to me. It's also a good thing that I had a movie option because if I didn't then my entire flight would have been filled with the sounds of some children's show that was blasting from a parents laptop and could be heard throughout the entire plane. I was really surprised that none of the flight attendants either asked them to turn it down to a reasonable volume or requested that they give the child headphones."
Pros: "Everything on the international flight was great."
Cons: "Toronto to SLC was horrible. You have to pay extra for everything, even blankets."
Cons: "Very bad experience, first flight was delayed then lost my luggage. All my cloths, Medicine and cosmetics in the bag. They spoiled my trip"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not completely full. we had a hard touchdown"
Cons: "1. These days, I have come to expect a complimentary in-flight entertainment system on international flights. This flight had nothing whatsoever. This is ok, but the customer should be warned when making the flight reservation so they can choose whether to bring an ipad along. 2. Food and service were not as good as a recent Air Canada return trip from Roma to Vancouver which had a first rate crew, food, and complimentary beer. 3. The plane was much older than the recent return trip I had and the air was much more dry."
Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."
Pros: "The flight crew and the ground staff were nice enough."
Cons: "The new policy of charging $25 a flight just for a seat assignment means that it now costs $100.00 just to sit next to your travel companion. I understand charging extra something extra, like a service class upgrade or even some more legroom, but not just to get a seat next to your partner when you booked your flight months in advance. Bottom line: We didn't pay and ended up not just in different rows but in different boarding groups. However, now that we are at our destination, with the $100.00 we saved I'm going to sit next to my spouse at a very nice restaurant, enjoying a fine dinner! Seems like a better use of our money."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late. It had apparently arrived late, and then they had mechanical problems. Air Canada gave me some inaccurate information which delayed me in Montreal and made me miss my connection to Toronto. Also, even though I specified to the flight attendant that I was connecting to Toronto before going to the US , they only gave me the US custom form even though you apparently need to fill the Canadian one even if you are just transiting through the country."
Cons: "My flight with Air Canada from Barcelona to the final destination of Atl was an awful experience. Our flight was delayed for no apparent reason causing my friend and I to miss our connecting flight. The Air Canada crew did re-book our connecting flight, however there was so much confusion on whether or not we had to go through customs since we landed in Montreal and our new flight was with Delta not Air Canada, that we ended up rushing through lines after lines of customs in the Montreal airport only to learn we could have avoided it all. On top of that, we were told multiple things about our baggage. To be safe we tried to go through customs and pick up our bags to be rechecked, but our bags weren't there. When we asked they said they had been put on our Delta flight, however in actuality they were stored in a closest. Needless to say, our bags did not travel with us and my friend and I had to spend hours at the Atl airport trying to locate our bags and arrange to have them flown to Atl and delivered to us. The flight itself was okay but their in flight entertainment options were awful. You either have to download the Air Canada app (which wouldnt download) or rent an Ipad for $10. The food wasn't great either. The crew members were nice but a little impatient and the bathrooms were gross. Overall, I won't fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "My carry on bags were checked in till Toronto and NOT lax ??? Checkin crew not helpful caused me lot of grief- I had to get the bags out from customs at Toronto and then take them on board for the flight to LAX- Customs and immigration- unnecessary hassle!!"
Pros: "The plane was delayed and I had a short layover so I was maybe not going to make it to my next flight so they transferred me to another airline and was upgraded to first class for free!"
Cons: "I disliked that my flight was originally at 4 pm and the one that I was changed to didn't leave until 8 pm"
Pros: "friendly staff, good food in bus. class. great smooth landing at SFO"
Cons: "long wait for luggage at SFO"
Cons: "The fact that because I was late for my flight, my reservation was cancelled. I was not given the opportunity to change my flight at all, I just lost out on the return portion of my travel. I would have been willing to pay a fee to change my return, but not given the opportunity. Had I booked directly with the airline, they would have had no problem making a change. Buyer beware!!! If you don't book directly with an airline, you may suffer the same fate as me! This was an almost $1,300 dollar learning experience. Do not use third party online booking agents! You do not have the same protections as dealing with the airlines directly."
Pros: "On premium economy, the service and food were excellent!"
Cons: "Chairs are so uncomfortable! They are just not ergo. Also the iPad entertainment system causes neck strain since you are looking down for a few hours at a time."
Pros: "Staff are wonderful."
Cons: "Not comfortable compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Not even pretzels"
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. Lady at the counter was not helpful at all. Although my main carrier for the international flight allowed 2 checked baggage free of charge, Air Canada only allowed one free baggage and 2nd baggage for $100 for the connection."
