Still waiting for my coffee!
Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."
Cons: "The aircraft was very cold and chilly."
Pros: "When the seat folded down (business class) into a bed, it gave almost a twin size bed that was flat."
Cons: "Being in business class, I had expected the food to be better. Also, the red wines offered were only a sub selection of the ones in the menu."
Pros: "Excellent crew and very well dressed and always smiling"
Cons: "The lights were switched off for a very long time. That can be avoided"
Pros: "Seats are spacious even for economy class."
Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines"
Pros: "Crew were great. Flight was not full."
Cons: "Plane was a bit dated and the entertainment system not as good as the newer plane as choices are lesser."
Pros: "Seats were good"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous, went above and beyond."
Cons: "5 crying babies on a red eye. Don’t know if that can be prevented."
Pros: "Everything from booking, online check-in, self printing of Boarding Pass, BIz Class lounge, Flight. Flight too short (KL to SG) for me to eat and enjoy the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Singapore airlines use their antique aged flights for services to chc.unconfortable and a poor in-flight entertainment system"
Pros: "smooth boarding process excellent enterntainment offered food is also quite good"
Cons: "seats seem to get smaller, less comfortable then I am used to with Singapore Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly staff Good customer service"
Cons: "There was nothing i dislike"
Pros: "Satisfied and feel good on Singapore airlines, definitely will consider next trip"
Cons: "1 hour delay of departure"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."
Cons: "I don't see the point in giving out menus for economy class, especially as it's only a choice of 2 meals and one of them wasn't available anyway. It's a waste of paper."
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "everything good"
Cons: "need new toilet"
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."
Pros: "Spacious economy class seating and great service"
Pros: "The trip was uneventful, with the usual excellent service."
Cons: "SQ860 flight on 4th April morning delayed and greatly affected my today trip scheduled."
Pros: "Service is always excellent"
Cons: "Food however was very disappointing. Surprising as Singapore Airlines pride themselves on quality and the food was poor :-("
Pros: "Frequent serving of drinks, huge selection of latest films on large screen, comfortable ride"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "Finally an airline that loads from the back to the front. Makes sense to me"
Pros: "Service was nice."
Cons: "Comparing to recent businesses class flight on Emirates; Singapore airlines seat does not recline to flat bed. Boarded flight st 11pm and arrived at Singapore at 7am. Toiletries like tooth brush and paste, razor etc. were not provided. Emirates provides, so we did not pack in-flight."
Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"
Pros: "Food was delicious!"
Pros: "Service was great."

Pros: "Awesome comfort, infotainment, service and food. Was amazed at the value for an economy flight - much better than BA & United in every way."
Pros: "the crews were very polite and very helpful"
Pros: "The wonderfully kind and friendly air hosts and hostesses"
Pros: "service, good TV quality and good movie selection"
Cons: "sound quality with headphones was horrible"
Cons: "Food wise can be improved. But for flight meat from ecomnomy class; it's considered good enough."
Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"
Pros: "The cabin attendants kept us well hydrated."
Cons: "The entertainment options were mediocre. Gluten-free meal may have contained traces of gluten."
Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"
Pros: "Food was excellent, timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crew was not as friendly as I'm used to."
Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"
Pros: "The crew was great but the seats were not."
Cons: "Roomier seats and meals should be served a little bit closer in between"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "Service and food choices. Seating and the mattress for bed."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew made us laugh and our flight flew by. Great entertainment options and the food service was delicious."
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"
Pros: "Everything. A modern comfortable plane. It's embarrassing for airlines from America because they pale in comparison. I would gladly pay $100 more and fly in style IN COACH! Can't wait for the return flight."
Cons: "I am vegetarian so should request veg option meals"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "The food was GREAT! The flight crew was social, nice and I felt apart of the family. The seats were comfy. I brought my own movies on my iPad but I used their free movies instead."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Pros: "Great food (most airlines do not serve any), great entertainment system, & cleanliness is superb."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold. I had to wear a jacket most of the flight."
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."
Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"
Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "The crew in my area didnt like her job or passengers in general and it was obvious."
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."
Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."
Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."
Food, seat comfort, crew service
Fabulous airline e and great lounge!
I never went and I’ve tried calling to cancel the flight see if I can postpone for another date but every time they’ll transfer me to another personal.
Pros: "On time, nice crew, clean aircraft."

Cons: "Meals could have been better."
Pros: "the crew was good."
Cons: "hot as hell during check in outside and it took forever. then the entertainment on the plane which was prehistoric with everyone having to watch the same movie, plus it was a very old movie!"
Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Not using Air Fiji."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were really limited. Movie options were mostly older movies."
Cons: "By sending my purchase thru a third party, you screwed my ability to use your cancellation policy and was forced to use there’s which was not customer service oriented. I will never again use kayak"
Pros: "Trip , food etc"
Cons: "Delays on flights"
Pros: "I love that the planes are loaded from back to front!!! I wish airlines in the states will follow suit. It seems that this makes the most sense."
Pros: "Company in the plane Stewards were indeed what saved the whole ordeal with Fiji Airways for me."
Cons: "Not leaving at the advertised time both from SFO and NAD Not having enough overhead space in the NAD to TBU flight."
Pros: "Pleasant, fast, and efficient process"
Cons: "Leg space cramped for my tall husband"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good."
Cons: "Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff. Loved the leg from Nandi to Auckland."
Cons: "Having to repack our bags when the total among the three of us flying was within limits. And then still having to pay an extra $60 US. when we didn't get it quite right by about 2 ks. However you did let my wife's wheelchair on without payment thanks for that. I am an ex pilot so it is difficult for your staff to try and explain weight ratios, and the dangers of extra weight.. Then being made to take 1 point something kilos into another lighter bag. However the staff were very good about it. not their fault that they find themselves having to talk through something that just doesn't ad up. However we enjoyed the flight, and the help we received transferring from a very late plane to one almost waiting in Fiji. :-)"
Pros: "Sorry the flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Nike complaints good food everything was on time"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Had a good flight comfortable seat and the food was quite good smooth running everything on time"
Pros: "I love the workers, I love the entertainment. The pilot did a great job."
Pros: "Nothing. I felt they were racist. Not only were we not able to board the plane early with our Baby based on Veronica denying our request request I notice the female crew would acknowledge the other Babies and never noticed our African American Baby."
Cons: "The food and he service was awful."
Pros: "In flight crew did an excellent job as well as the check in at Honolulu international airport except for that one lady with that birth mark on her face. She needs to cheer up more and be less grouchy"
Cons: "A little uncomfortable with seating space and leg room but most airlines share the similar seating space anyways. Food was okay"
Pros: "the crew always smiling."
Pros: "Great crew and vegetarian options for every meal!"
Cons: "No personal monitors at seats"
Pros: "The price was good...initially."
Cons: "My Fiji flights between Honolulu and Auckland were cancelled so they rebooked me on Jetstar and New Zealand Airways Apparently the international date line was not taken into account and I arrived in Sydney hours after my connecting flight to Auckland had already left! I talked to 7 different people in all corners of Sydney airport and no one knew what to do with me. My attempts to call Fiji Airways from my cell phone and then a landline at the airport didn't go through so I ended up messaging a friend in the States and she was able to call and get me booked on a NZ Air flight to Auckland that left the next morning. Both Jetstar and NZ Air gave me different information on what paperwork I needed and what my baggage and carry-on allowance was, which was frustrating. I finally arrived in Auckland 26 hours later than scheduled. I understand the cyclone cancelling the Fiji flights but the rescheduling error caused some significant expenses and a great deal of hassle."
Cons: "They was a great selection but many seemed old and B-grade."
Pros: "Liked seats, leg room, customer service and TV."
Cons: "It was freezing cold during the 10 hour flight !!!!"
Pros: "Service, space, seats and one meal was good."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic,,,to being on tine, to boarding and to service thru out the flight. Five star airline!"
Pros: "The movie choices"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane... Even with jackets and blankets on!"
Cons: "Fiji airways lost about a third of the baggage on our flight and no representatives would give us any information. Then when we were sent to file a claim for lost luggage, no one was at the office for another hour. While I understand things happen, the way that they handled this situation was completely awful."
Pros: "Crew. On time."
Cons: "I had no problems"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Very friendly crew."
Pros: "The service was very friendly."
Cons: "My knees while sitting upright drive into the seat in front of me. No extra legroom seats available. Please start saving these for people who actually need them. Also, boarding was like cattle hearding, lack of organization caused anxiety ... albeit my wife and I were amused by people without direction."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight and had to cancell the whole trip. They’re the only game in town to get to Christmas Island."
Pros: "On time. Good aircraft. Good landing"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "asked for a blanket... girl never came back with one"
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "That we had a window seat, but on getting to Nadi found that had been given away and we had two seats in the middle section. Not real happy about that."
Cons: "No free entertainment, no food, unfriendly staff"
Cons: "No Tv screens in seat"
Cons: "I had a seat assignment for my NAN-LAX flight and it was not honored. I had seat 9b assigned but when I got to the airport check in they put me in row 40."
Cons: "Also missed this flight."
Pros: "Covered by headline"
Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
Beverages were offered once from Vancouver to Toronto. I forgot to fill my water bottle so was quite thirsty.
Pros: "All the staff were very helpful, even having boarding passes ready for us for our Vancouver connection to Portland."
Cons: "I'm 6' 7", so for me, economy-class seats are usually the closest I come to being tortured. The food was just OK - not what I normally eat but I'm sure it's fine for others."
Pros: "they gave me the special food"
Pros: "compliance in the boarding"
Cons: "in general the male flight attendant was very disinterested in resolving nonconformities such as that the light of the chair did not turn on or request for support in completing Customs form and uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "New "signature" business class is smaller than the old pod, but very functional layout."
Cons: "Food created by Chef Hawksworth is mediocre at best."
Cons: "flight cancelled. had to go down to ticketing. rebooked given a $10 food voucher and told we would get a hotel room when we got to Toronto since we were getting in real late because of the delay"
Pros: "Both going and returning flights left and arrived on time. The crew were good. Boarding and unloading went fast and efficiently and bags arrived fairly quickly and not damaged."
Cons: "The rouge entertainment system didn’t work. It seems like it’s old technology that was used when only some passengers used it. Now every seat has a device trying to log in. System just can’t support the high volumn of use. It worked on the return flight but most passengers were sleeping."
Cons: "plane is old and dated, service is minimum"
Cons: "Rouge is terrible compares to regular Air Canada."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Coach seats have okay room compared to some other carriers."
Cons: "At least from my experience, Air Canada is late half the time. This last leg was 6 hours late. No check-in availability notification on the second leg, and I got the flight delay notification after I landed (6 hours later)! Pretty useless. Everything is nickle and dimed with no included food except for the tiny snack thing on a 6 hour flight. It's pretty difficult to get their app to work for entertainment."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Not enough time to the flight from Halifax to west plam beach"
Cons: "Flight attendant announcements were painfully loud causing me to have to cover my ears on 3 occasions."
Cons: "Rouge flight was sub par"
Cons: "Air Canada changed this flight to a red eye. And didn't let us know until months later by then we had booked our accommodation they don't allow refunds so we had to go regardless. But let me tell you we would have cancelled if possible"
Pros: "on time, courteous and helpful flight attendants. Good food in the right amounts."
Cons: "never easy to sleep properly, but was able to rest and sleep enough."
Pros: "terrific video entertainment, excellent and affordable food choices"
Pros: "Business class seats and the overall service"
Cons: "Flight was late and the movie selection in English is pretty old."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Pros: "Two full drink services was nice"
Cons: "USB outlet didn't work, and my seat didn't have a normal AC outlet"
Pros: "The flight crew were wonderful to interact with and really helpful in accommodating my disabilities. Dinner was mediocre but at least some was available, which I didn't expect on an overnight flight starting after dark. ("Breakfast" was a slice of really tasty banana bread but nothing else.) I really appreciated the presence of outlets and USB ports for charging electronic devices, and that the seats had adjustable headrest flaps. These are essential features on long flights!"
Cons: "It's almost impossible to sleep in economy class seats, even with the adjustable headrests. I recognize that economy is supposed to be the "no frills" class of travel but sleep is not a luxury. Sleep is a basic human need, like food and oxygen. I don't actually believe that offering better accommodations for everyday passengers (off whom the bulk of airline profits are made) is financially unfeasible or unreasonable."
Cons: "It was a red eye so I tried to sleep but it was cold in the plane and they had run out of free blankets. They still had other blankets but they cost $17. We were offered water once on an 8 hour flight. The plane was not equipped with TV monitors.."
Cons: "No leg room, silly ambient light"
Pros: "Very professional but also pleasant. Clean, good food."
Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."
Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Old plane with rock hard seats."
Pros: "Staff was very accomodating"
Cons: "No snacks, and that on a long flight and a flight over the Christmas holidays. Although I was lucky to get a good price to fly to Maui with my adult daughter,, as a senior citizen and a person on GIS, a little snack goes a long way."
Pros: "The flight itself was great, smooth and quiet and we arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "The boarding was way too slow"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient and had no trouble with baggage. Upgraded to business class and had very nice crew members serve us."
Cons: "The entertainment was on an iPad, the options for food was super limited, the seating was uncomfortable and this was all after upgrading and spending more money on the flight. Very disappointing"
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were hard and not comfortable. There was no entertainment on back of the seats."
Pros: "None I like"
Cons: "Crew - no one onboard seemed happy, didn't see anyone smile at all, not a happy place. Food - tasteless, for the only meal they offered transatlantic flight was total thumbs down."
Pros: "I enjoyed the selection of movies that they had."
Cons: "Seats are wildly uncomfortable and cramped. I guess that is what you come to expect from flying, but man does it suck. Longer flights, over 4 hours, should include a complimentary snack. It is a long while to go without food, and paying 5 bucks for a small pack of candy is a bit ridiculous."
Cons: "Being stranded in Toronto for 24 hours with Air Canada unwilling to rebook us on other carriers to get us home sooner. Given our prediction of the missed connection and request for rebooking before our first leg of travel, it was particularly irritating that they would not help us get home the most efficient way."
Cons: "I arrived before the earlier flight to Cleveland, but even though there was room on the flight for me Air Canada said I would have to pay $150 to switch to that flight. So I had to wait five hours (and the next flight was delayed) for no reason. Air Canada should be more accomodating to customers who want to take an earlier flight, as I had to wait around for no reason whatsoever."
Cons: "No on board entertainment. Even with the Air Canada app for the phone, the choices were so little. Very long flight without any movies to watch. Will not book with them again."
Pros: "Airplane was clean and crew was nice."
Cons: "Legroom - amazingly cramped, and I'm only 5'10""
Pros: "Comfortable seats with great entertainment options. The flight attendants were especially wonderful. They were always smiling and good conversationalists."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and there wasn't really any organization. A flight to Beijing was boarding at the same time at the gate right next to ours and passengers were getting mixed up, causing longer boarding. Some better signage or direction from staff would have been appreciated."
Cons: "My seat back was not reclining for the entire 9 hour trip"
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "We flew Air Canada Rouge both to Maui and returning. On the way out, our plane had a "fuel pump" failure and we had to sit on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. On our first attempt at a return flight, we were delayed because they were missing a flight attendant. After she showed up, we were told that a seal on the plane was leaking hot air onto the fuel tank, and we were likely not leaving the airport that night. They kept us at the gate for hours because there was a (and I quote) "1% chance we could get the part from another island, but don't count on it" The time for them to legally keep the pilot and attendants came and went, so they all left... but we were still kept at the gate. The plane left the gate and STILL AC Rouge wouldn't officially cancel the flight, because then they would have to put us up in hotels. So no crew, no plane, and all of us sitting at the gate at 2 in the morning waiting for some guy in some mainland city to call and tell us we could leave. FINALLY, the call came in, and we spent another hour and a half waiting in line to get hotel vouchers. The next day, when we actually got on the plane, my brother in law sat down to all of a sudden receive a fountain of water pouring on his head from the ventilation system. When he asked if he could get some tape or something to plug the leak of water, the stewardess told him that they are not allowed to put tape anywhere. So he stood there with a waded up paper towel. Oh, and there was puke on my seatbelt. Sure , it is a budget flight. But I am paying less for not having a meal, cramped seats, and minimal service... NOT an unsafe plane that is literally peeing on our faces for being dumb enough to choose this airline. Congrats, Air Canada Rouge for our worst flight experience. Get some planes that aren't falling apart."
Cons: "Rouge was supposed to be cheaper than AC Everything is wrong w Rouge , Both the Airline crew and passengers all agree"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. The gate was also located way off in some wing that felt like a back hallway or service entrance. I kept turning back thinking that I had wandered into a staff hallway. The gate area was very crowded and lackluster. I assumed that the area was a temporary space during construction, but the staff said it was permanent. Very uninviting."
Cons: "Freezing cold overnight plane."
Cons: "Can’t get an update on lost bags really poor service"
Pros: "Large plane, quiet ride."
Cons: "Staff was rude to my wife and very useless. Our bags were dropped off together, but only one made it home. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Pros: "Departed and arrived ontime."
Cons: "Old plane. No usb power outlets or tv screens. No included food service in 8 hr flight."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and very attentive."
Pros: "Amazing flight amazing service."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Extremely crowded, uncomfortably so"
Pros: "The burger I bought was good."
Cons: "I had to pay for food on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "Wi-Fi cost too much"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Cons: "My new luggage was mishandled so poorly that the bottom wheel assembly snapped in two and there is a puncture hole about an inch long in a different area of the bag. The bag is also very dirty. When I brought it to the counter I was told "Minor tears and wheels are not covered" and that I could "...make a homeowner's insurance claim." Not even an apology."
Cons: "Your employees are all RUDE !!!"
Cons: "It was united airlines not ana airlines"
Pros: "Gate agent was nice and friendly."
Cons: "The loading process is horrible as usual and by the time I got on board there were no overhead bins available for my bag. I had to go back four rows and really shove my bag into a bin--and my bag isn't ovesized. After leaving the gate, we sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes because there was some kind of incident in the back of the plane. Some of the crew headed to the back of the plane wearing latex gloves and later a passenger went into a lavatory to change his pants. I think someone threw up on the poor guy. What I didn't like was no one telling us why we weren't taking off, and no apology when we did! Later in the flight, I was asleep when the crew went up the aisle with a food cart and pinched my foot!"
Pros: "Courteous staff, nice attentive staff."
Cons: "The length of travel time."
Pros: "No delays, nice personnel and food pas OK but a little pricy."
Cons: "Internet costing 8$ for an hour is way overpriced, no leg room, seats not really comfy, no meals provided during an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Change of seat w/o any notification."
Pros: "If it weren't for the great staff, I'd give this flight a 1."
Cons: "The new seats only give the illusion of reclining. There isn't enough space to comfortably lean forward. I thought I'd be sleeping through this flight, however there was absolutely no way to get comfortable. I didn't go to SFO , I was redirected to LAX."
Pros: "Checked on carry on for no charge"
Cons: "The passenger in the seat next to mine rented a tablet from United and proceeded to spend the entire night playing games or watching movies -- he never turned it off the entire flight. The glare from the tablet made it impossible for me to sleep or even nap on the flight. I asked the fellow if he would mind dimming the screen but he told me that wasn't possible. If United could put dimmable screens on the tablets it would help create an environment conducive to sleep, which is what most passengers want on a redeye flight. Alternatively, privacy screens would cut down on the shared glare. As it was, the flight was a nightmare."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Having to wait"
Pros: "I was able to get an aisle seat"
Cons: "The pain in my ears"
Cons: "The movies kept doing out. They told us to log in and get compensated in a few days"
Cons: "The most rude staff I've ever encountered, at least at the HNL airport. Movies didn't work"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the fact that there were chargers between the seats"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours due to a "maintenance/paperwork" issue. Because of this I missed my connecting flight to Tampa and was rescheduled but now I must fly yo Newark and then to Tampa. My trip will be completed 12 hours later than originally intended and as such my plans have been upset as well as my self. I will not be flying united ever again after this trip."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi. No entertainment. No leg room."
Cons: "Late flight bad food. Poor mannered employees and patrons"
Pros: "Flight was only about 25% full so we have lots of room to stretch out. Appreciated the vegetarian option for the meal. It was tasty."
Pros: "It's so fast excellent"
Cons: "Not getting a confirmation email or check-in reminder. No working wifi or power docks on plane (marketed as having in-seat entertainment). Moved to the back of the plane with no recline and destroying my back after telling them I need at least minimal recline. Out of most food options upon being served last and given a soggy undressed chicken wrap for 12.00. Finally, the gate dock was not able to connect with the plane upon arrival yeilding a 30 minute delay at the gate. Unapologetic crew simply ready to turn onto the next flight. This is why I don't fly united."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! Friendly, efficient, and helpful. Power outlets are outstanding."
Cons: "Luggage pick up was delayed. And the constant selling of products during the flight. Come on, a nine hour flight should have complimentary WiFi in this day and age. Also, few people want to pay for on board for airline food."
Pros: "Smooth flying. The pilot did a good job. 1"
Cons: "1. At checkin, the counter person wanted to charge us for a bassinet! We've had over 40 flights in 13 months and this is the first time any checkin person tried to charge for the bassinet. 2. My daughter was sleeping on my lap so I couldn't get up. I repeatedly pressed the call button for a tissue. They didn't come until the cart came. She refused to give me a tissue and told me to get some from the bathroom. Clearly, I couldn't get up bc of my sleeping baby. Finally another flight attendant gave me some when she gave me a glass of water."
Pros: "No food offered. Only received one drink serving."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The connection to TV and movies was patchy and had to pause multiple times for many minutes each time to load.the"
Pros: "arrived on time, newer aircraft"
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Smooth travels. Good price"
Pros: "Direct flight and pricing"
Cons: "We paid extra to have seating together in an upgraded to business class. We paid an additional $89.00 each for this option on top of our airfare. When we got to the boarding gate and we were ready to have our ticket scanned we were told, "unfortunately, you two won't be able to be seated together, we had a seat change that affected your seating." then we were asked to go to the counter at the gate to see what could be done, but there was nothing that could be done, the flight was full. So our money was collected but due to the mess up on seating and loss of our $600.00 epi pen medication we didn't take the flight."
Cons: "freezing on plane"
Pros: "Nothing special!"
Cons: "You have to pay for food! It should have been included w/ the fair!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The lady at the gate did everything she could to get my wife and I seats next to each other. Very kind and polite woman at HNL."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and no leg space at all. Paid the price of a meal at a restaurant for a box of snacks on the plane. Food grossly overpriced."
