Never flew could not board cause of delay in Covid test resolute then was ask to pay 4 thousand to rebook
Pros: "Food and professionalism, were excellent, had a good stress free experience."
Cons: "Had issues with unusual plane noise."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and attentive as always."
Cons: "An upgrade for more comfortable and ergonomic seats would make a lot of difference...."
Pros: "The service was consistent and crew were all very respectful and did their best."
Cons: "The seats were extremely narrow, hard and uncomfortable...."
Pros: "Clean and comfort"
Pros: "As always Korean Air’s attention to detail is outstanding and impressive."
Cons: "Though I appreciate the consideration given to tall passengers (trying to find us an aisle seat with an empty seat beside, after boarding, for instance), I think there is more that could be done during the check-in process to seat tall passengers into emergency exits or other seats with more legroom"
Pros: "The crew, as always, was super professional, friendly, helpful, and efficient. The plane was neat and clean, I was pleasantly surprised with personal items like tooth paste, tooth brush, and slippers. And I was thrilled that you served wine with food as well. That goes a long way!"
Cons: "I didn’t rate comfort and food as “excellent” as I did other items not because they were not great, but flying on an economy class for 14.5 hours, I can’t force myself to speak too highly about these two items, which doesn’t necessarily reflect my flight experience or Korean Air quality!"
Cons: "More water"
Cons: "Need to improve the food qyality"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and service was good"
Cons: "In flight entertainment movies were limited"
Pros: "Preference given for those requiring extra help boarding"
Cons: "Very narrow seats with very very limited leg room. I’m only 5’4” tall and had no leg room. My sister is 5’11” and had leg cramps from the 4.5 hour flight because of the lack of leg room. Probably time to replace this plane."
Pros: "Great leg room even for tall person. Food is good and there's enough choices."
Pros: "EVERYTHING!!!! The staff at the gates to the boarding staff. Everyone was very helpful and professional. The seats had plenty of room and the staff always provided service with a smile."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I disliked on this trip."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive, I just thought it was weird that they aren’t allowed to take pictures? That was the only strange thing. Overall one of the best experiences with an airline compared to most. Probably because of the unlimited tasty beverages ;)"
Cons: "Strange that flight attendants can’t take pictures like stated above. And the video games are horribly outdated!"
Cons: "Missed connection at ICN due to flight delayed !!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good leg room, pillow and blanket are provided and food was pretty good too."
Pros: "Got the seats we wanted. If you are travelling with an infant this is top priority and they delivered"
Cons: "Flight delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Seats reasonably comfortable, service decent"
Cons: "3 of my 4 flight legs were considerably delayed, my luggage not making the connection for one of them. A friend also flying Korean also had delays making me think they are unreliable and extremely disorganized. I don't know what they'll do when they're really busy for the Olympics. Entertainment OK but ANA has much more."
Pros: "Once we were on board. the service was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 24hrs which is not the fault of Korean airlines however Boarding was so disorgainsed with no information on the process, almost no priority boarding. We were told that people with boarding passes of the original flight date had to wait for more recent passes. This led many to think that they would be kicked off the flight after waiting 24hrs. Once we did finally board we found that they had made a mistake and had to deboard a passenger resulting in an extra hour delay"
Pros: "The new plane was amazing on my way back from Singapore to Chicago. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was good which included some traditional Korean food options and some western cuisine."
Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We boarded the airplane and took us 2.5 hrs to take off...the kept saying oh 15min longer, then 20min...ect...for the entire time...waiting for “documents” then refueling the plane which they couldve been doing before we boarded and while we were waiting for so, called documents..."
Pros: "I liked that the captain was very informative. We were on the plane for awhile and captain let passenger know why and when the plane was going to take off. The crew were very friendly and ready to assist."
Pros: "On time, clean, friendly, comfortable, helpful."
Pros: "Seat and space friendly workers."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "The staff was excellent."
Cons: "Food was blah and the seats were on the smaller side."
Pros: "Korea Airlines is the best!"
Pros: "Boarding, food, airplanes"
Pros: "Politeness, cleanliness and food."
Pros: "Everything went well. Crew were helpful."
Cons: "There was no onboard entertainment system."
Pros: "The food was really good, the crew was always kind and taking care of me all the time, the aircraft was nice and comfort, flights were always on time and the connection in Seoul was fast. I love the service. I would totally recommend it and whenever I have the chance to fly with Korean Air, I would do it"
Pros: "Good service and on time"
Pros: "A380 is great plane (this coming from a real Boeing enthusiast). Very Quiet! Coach had more leg room than I expected, especially for a non-US carrier. Good service and great inflight entertainment. The airline is not a US domestic carrier so flight staff might not understand every English word of a request but they try very hard. Most US carriers would not try as hard if I were speaking Korean! The whole world does not speak your language and remember that coach is coach for a reason $$$. Customs procedures are out of the control of carriers so comments about that."
Cons: "No individual control for air vent and it was a bit warm for me but most people were comfortable."
Pros: "Service was excellent, as always on KAL flights, top notch airline food."
Pros: "Acceptable legroom. Appreciated the cups of water and juice served regularly. Very good breakfast."
Cons: "Hostesses could have redistributed passengers to empty seats so everyone could have been more comfortable, especially for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Everything was so excellent. An absolutely amazing airline to fly with."
Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."
Pros: "Stewerdesses were great"
Pros: "Stewardess are courteous."
Cons: "Bathroom floor is not maintained properly. Always wet."
Pros: "Great service and entertainment"
Cons: "Food was no good"
Pros: "Since this was a connecting flight it was decent turbulence was more felt."
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean facility, good food and good entertainment selection."
Cons: "The long waiting line at ticketing area."
Pros: "The plane was not full and it was a quiet flight. Time past quickly."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable and the meals could use some improvement."
Pros: "Nice airport and huge"
Pros: "They are good. Nice short flight to Asia. Good selection on food and entertainment. Overall will fly with Korean air again :)"
Cons: "Had some delayed issues in Korean to BKK. But still decent overall"
Pros: "Nothing special to like but overall I don't have any complaint"
Cons: "I wished airline mentioned to me that my neighbor passenger is injured that the person needs special help from crews. I had a little issue to go bathroom and while seated i couldn't moved much freely."
Cons: "The landing was poor , almost to a point of dangerous . Too much turbulence during flight. And the drops should have been avoidable"
Pros: "The crew was fine. the seats were not so comfortable in the economy."
Cons: "More comfortable seats."
Cons: "Long lines for security in Auckland, so I barely made the flight to Chicago. There were delays in Chicago due to the weather."
Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"
Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"
Cons: "There was only approximately 13 inches for the aisle between seat sections. It was mostly women with big wide hips who kept me awake most of the 12 hour and 34 minute flight, as they brushed my shoulder disturbing my ability to rest."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."
Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."
Pros: "Good seat, very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment so can't score that. Basic snacks"
Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."
Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
Pros: "Air New Zealand is one of the best air experiences we've had. Employees seem to enjoy their jobs and are usually happy. Very service oriented. Ground staff and check in terrific. Why can't USA folks and TSA figure this out? Updates from flight deck were good and pilot seemed to avoid some expected turbulence. Cabin crew friendly, competent, helpful. Food was very good, nice touch with comp wine. Entertainment options were many and good variety. Hope to fly ANZ again someday."
Cons: "A little weird, to go out of secured concourse and go back through security, again, in Auckland. Safety, I suppose. At least process was fast and efficient and folks were friendly."
Pros: "Great customer service. We flew on Air New Zealand and United, and the contrast was big. ANZ stewards showed much higher level of pride in serving their passengers."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"
Pros: "The crew, entertainment, and food were all great!"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. This puts a huge damper on our honeymoon."
Pros: "the fare is so cheap ,service is excellent"
Pros: "Really great service from the flight crews - smiley, polite and we were served drinks twice from a 2.5 hrs flight. Entertainment program was great with better leg space. Overall it was a pleasant experience! Thanks"
Cons: "No free movies"
Cons: "Crew forgot to serve us our meal."
Pros: "The seats are super comfy and the staff are lovely and very attentive to ones needs. The only down fall would be that I had to pay for movies and a meal wasn’t included with my flight, but that’s minor. Also, baggage cost me 120.AUD for one bag! I thought that was pretty outrageous for one check in bag. But the pilot was very good and informative as the overall flight was smooth. Thanks again air New Zealand."
Cons: "Over priced check in bag. Due to it not being according to weight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "The crew were always smiling and helpful. We were allocated the SkyCouch seat which was pretty nice"
Cons: "I double booked the flight on Nov 27 to Sydney from Queenstown through Kayak while I had another flight booked on the same date to Christchurch from Auckland for the same 2 people and Kayak did not warn me that I had already booked the flight on the 27th. It was my fault but I would appreciate if Kayak warned me. Otherwise all is good. Thanks"
Cons: "Missed the flight because of a very late connection. Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia kept handing me off to each other since it was booked as virgin Australia but on an air New Zealand flight. Neither wanted to help at first. Finally virgin Australia ticket agent took pity and helped me rebook for the next day. This was after I was told by air New Zealand that I had to call the booking number for virgin Australia. I’m traveling from the US and didn’t have a cell phone that worked in Australia... which I explained and asked how I could call the number without a phone. Was promptly told to go over to Virgin Australia ticket counter where I made the one remaining agent who was closing the desks help me. However the airport lost my luggage and could not find where it was. I ended up spending three hours in the airport and still no luggage with the baggage company saying they have no record of it anywhere. Very frustrating trip."
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Really quite comfortable seat and space wise Good to see entertainment still in the back seat"
Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."
Pros: "Happy helpful crew"
Cons: "Slow to board and no gate on arrival. Had to be bused to terminal and waited ten minutes for the bus to arrive."
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was running about a half hour late"
Pros: "The capitan spoke and explain that was perfect taking into account that was a cloudy day."
Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."
Pros: "Food, space, service. Arrived much more rested than in economy."
Pros: "The best service I've ever had with seamless rebooking and escorted followthrough to make my return flight. Even my luggage made it throughout the short interval layovers!"
Pros: "Everything was on time, comfortable & smooth, online checkin was clear & easy. Helpful, responsive staff at every level. A million times better than my other travel leg with United (but that's nothe saying much...)"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "Seats were more cramped than usual"
Pros: "All flights were on time and all worked well. The booking of the flight via kayak and payment via vayama was a week long process that involved lots of calls to their customer service which couldn't help their poor website and in the process the flight price rose 3 times, so next time, I'll better book directly with Lufthansa and save some nightmares."
Cons: "Full plane, no options to spread out."
Pros: "I was most impressed with the lovely flight attendants who were friendly and very kind and caring with my young adult daughter who has flying anxiety. They were so fantastic and really made a difference to her flight."
I've always preferred Qantas, and the service is still generally good, but someone has taken their eye off the food offering. Back from NZ it was noodles with a sauce in a cardboard box. No cheese and biscuits, no sweet. Air Tahiti/Air Cailin, etc.. give a decent meal while on International.
Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Free checked Bags"
Cons: "If we could have a free select seat after booking."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Pros: "It was our first time flying on Qantas. everything was above expectations."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"
Pros: "Service from the moment of getting near the booking counter was excellent. Flight was on time and staff were great."
Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."
Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"
Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Cons: "My headphone jack did not work so i could not watch anything on the TV for the entire flight"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor legroom, felt very cramped for an international flight. The infotainment system in my seat, and some others didn't work."
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."
Pros: "Wrote a story published in the Samoa News today"
Cons: "Never got my bag in Sydney and I am enroute to the Kingdom of Tonga now"
Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"
Pros: "Good entertainment on seatback screens, pretty good food for an airplane (dinner, breakfast and lots of snacks and drinks), clean and good sized bathrooms."
Cons: "Seat comfort sucked obviously!"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Speedy boarding. Helpful crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment"
Pros: "nothing. Plane never left."
Cons: "Airlines that actually fly. We ended up renting a car and driving the 3.5 hours from Charlotte to Savannah and actually beat the flight that finally left after 11 pm and landed 1 am. We should have gotten the car much sooner and driven instead of sitting at the airport for 8 hours."
Pros: "The attendant for my area was amazing. I was in the back of the plane and he was friendly. He helped me look for my power cord. He is an outstanding member of your team!"
Cons: "Nope, this was a great flight!"
Cons: "I've flown American airlines twice this year. The service and flights have been very good. One thing I'd like to see is a variety of snack options."
Pros: "Trip went smoothly"
Pros: "Equipment was adequate. I liked the on board emergency instructions!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic—no lines, just a mass of people all trying to get to the same place.The crew did their job but weren’t particularly friendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Made sure I made my connection. Even tried to get me a better placement so I could quickly exit and head to my next flight."
Cons: "It wa super cold on my second flight. Small plane, rather loud."
Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Cons: "The security check line was about a mile long at the Terminal 1, but that's not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. The plane was clean and comfortable and the food was great for airplane food."
Pros: "Generally, the stewardess are new (slow service), but very kind and considerate."
Cons: "I take this flight quite a lot. These comments are for this flight (MIA/MSP) - but not necessarily only for this exact flight that I took on 10/1. To be clear - the crew says "this is not AA", it is Republic Airlines". Well, they must think of themselves very poorly. Their food in first class is always changing - oh, I meant only the names for the same exact meal change. "Grilled Chicken with Couscous", "Grilled Chicken with Risotto", etc.. - all cold meals as they do not have an oven/microwave? on the plane. They are charging first class international prices for economy domestic service. For this amount of money, they should have better meals and a more modern airplane. The first class is always freezing (even in summer) while the rear cabin where the crew stays when not working, is hot. So if they make the first class happy with the correct temperature, they cook in the back. I have also observed more people than usual coughing and getting colds - both ways - than any of the other flights I take regularly (over 115,000 miles on AA this year). I would suggest that AA make it clear that Republic must offer better service to their customers - especially for the large airfares they are receiving."
Pros: "They seem to have more time for the passengers then other airlines do"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Delayed for some unknown reason"
Pros: "Let's see - I was in first class. The flight itself was fine - and only one hour + late!"
Cons: "Food - Served the "breakfast" (when it was called a protein plate) I had coming (into MSP). for "lunch" on the way back (called it a meat plate for lunch. One slice turkey, one slice jamon, one egg, cinnamon roll and fruit. Just because they don't want to serve bread - they call it a protein plate? I'm not on a protein diet. Food was pretty sick for the amount I paid for the fight. Stewardess said it was against Republic's rules to give a customer a can of tonic water (so I could add to the small amount of vodka) - she also told me that it was against Delta's, American's and United's rules to give a can - strange? First Class seat did not recline. First Class was freezing per every flight on this segment (the stewardesses sit in the back and don't want to be uncomfortable - if they make the front warm - the back is too hot for them (not joking on this one). So many things to list - that I will finish on the AA site."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Waiting for maintenance, leaving late, running through the airport. No help from airport staff. They really seemed like that they didn’t care a bit if people made there flights. We barely made our connection to London. People who are 59 should NOT have to run through a huge airport! We spent a lot of money and planned this trip for nearly a year. There were no updates from Kayak. I will use Expedia from now on."
Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."
Pros: "Comfortable and simple flight"
Pros: "Called 1-800 hotline and got a new flight"
Cons: "Was at gate onntime for flight. At boarding time passengers were informed if there was an issue with the plane and maintenance is on their way to check out the problem. 30 minutes later we were still till that maintenance is on their way. One hour later there is still no information as far as when the fight will leave but they kept updating the boarding time. There was only one person of the counter who could help re-assign passengers to different flights due to their layovers. After waiting in line for 40 minutes and the line making no movement I called the airline 1-800 hundred number and explain my situation to the American Airlines Airlines representative. they really give me a new flight that left 20 minutes later after my call if I did not call I would not mean it that flight nor any other fights that morning because they're all in the afternoon."
Cons: "Only served half people beverages. No entertainment"
Cons: "Bathrooms didn't work delaying initial departure an hour. Ran to connecting flight and made it prior to door being closed. 12 passengers in total were told that we would be boarded and then were abrubly told none would be boarding our final leg to the Caymans even though our seats were available. Horrible company culture not focused on customers."
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "was seated between 2 to very overweight persons, the person in the aile side, extrememly heavy needed extension belt, plus removing the arm rest next to me and using great part of my seat. not a very comfortable situation and the plane was FULL, no empty seats"
Cons: "eh. not enough space, like most airlines these days. Flight wasn't long enough to hate it though."
Pros: "Wider seats."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Cons: "I left an expensive Bose head set in my seat that could not be found....or did smobody decide it was better in their possession.?"
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."
Cons: "delayed 2 hrs in perfect weather"
Pros: "straight through flight no connection. Crew was friendly and smiled."
Cons: "I do not like that you have to pay to choose a decent seat. Our flight was slightly delayed in boarding, and was not communicated."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Airlines have an industry wide problem. They INTENTIONALLY make every part of flying miserable so that passengers will pay anything to make it less painful. For example... if you want to make boarding quicker, build the cost of checked luggage into ticket prices so that you don't have people carrying everything on and clogging up the process. Or use the existing and publicly available research to improve boarding mechanisms... but that would mean you lose an opportunity to squeeze extra cash out of people for 'priority boarding'. This phenomenon is real, and currently be investigated by congress. Call your senator."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and flights were on time."
Cons: "Crew could have been a little more friendly and the planes were a bit dated...although I know AA is in the process of replacing their fleet."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Pros: "Quick board and exit, fast check-in"
Cons: "Wi-Fi onboard free for all T Mobile customers, cramped seat room for a smaller adult even"
Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."
Pros: "The flights left on time and arrived early. It reminded me of the old days when everything ran like clock-work."
Cons: "The leg room was barely enough for me and I'm 5'4". I can't imagine people much larger than me being comfortable at all. Also, the chair made my back hurt, so I did a lot of sitting up straight as opposed to being "in the chair". I noticed that you had snacks for purchase on the flight, but the free snacks were cookies and pretzels. It would be nice to offer a trail mix or dried fruit. Pretzels are good for people who might be a little sick at their stomach, but better snacks are a nice option. I ordered coffee and it was perfect. Overall, the flight was a good flight, just a little tweaking and it would be great. Thanks for asking."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Cons: "The wheel chair assistance that was requested for the passenger was not provided in Dallas and London."
Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew was nice and courteous"
Cons: "Seats seem quite narrow standard fare of biscuits to go with drink"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, food was fine, entertainment was okay."
Cons: "There was an unexplained delay of over an hour. More than that, I found the crew to be extremely rude for no reason. They were short with all responses and showed no care for passengers at all. I was very disappointed in their efforts"
Pros: "Crew was nice, drinks"
Cons: "Ended up landing in Oklahoma, no hotel available even with the voucher, no food in airport,"
Pros: "Food and beverage service was great, especially the the wine/beer and hot meals on the long flight."

Pros: "Boarding/ticketing/getting off the plane was all super efficient and quick. All the staff was super friendly and helpful. Made traveling so easy and stress-free."
Pros: "quiet plane"
Cons: "2.5 hours delayed flight without prompt notifications. Honest and prompt flight-delay alerts. Updates for delay came *every* half-hour. No opportunity to schedule ANYTHING based truthful delay estimations and the lack of timely communication."
Pros: "The staff are friendly"
Cons: "They didnt say any information to the passengers who had connecting flights. No one us that all passengers with connecting flight need to check out their luggages and check it in again. Now my luggage is lost.."
Pros: "Great service, easy boarding, good flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats, like everyone."
Cons: "Air Canada sucks. Not only did they delay our flight by 2.5 hours, it took them nearly an hour to get our baggage claim!"
Pros: "Everything went well From boarding to exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "Late 1.5 hrs both ways Should announce if connecting flights are being held"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew helped make the situation better but a 3 hour delay made my experience unpleasant."

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."
Cons: "No video screens for entertainment. If you want to use in flight entertainment, you need to download the Air Canada app prior to boarding."
Pros: "Liked my seating which I paid for dearly"
Cons: "No entertainment at all!"
Pros: "Clean and friendly"
Pros: "Easy to board and pass through customs on the way to Canada. Crew was nice. Overall a pretty average flight."

Pros: "Drinking water abudant , foods good"
Cons: "for God sake, too many seats"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, no in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather where the arriving plane was coming from. Apparently no other planes or crew were available to fill in. Interestingly, my daughter in Minneapolis knew before we did that our flight was cancelled. Poor communication. My son who was traveling with me was able to get help from Fatima on the "white phone". She got us to Winnipeg on a midnight flight and we then booked a $1400 Delta flight to Minneapolis from there. We needed to be there by 10 am to attend the legal adoption ceremony of my daughter's infant son. It was very close but we made it. Sorry to say but flying is no longer a pleasurable, exciting experience. Janet Davis"
Pros: "This flight was not full, so it was a pleasanter experience than expected. Actually, I slept through most of it."
Cons: "flight was delayed, but only by 2 hours, which doesn't even seem that bad. The gate was changed TWICE, which really wasn't awesome, and the 3rd gate did not have enough places to sit down."
Pros: "The crew were polite and friendly."
Cons: "It was a 3-hour flight, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "It's Vegas, what's not t like!"

Cons: "The entertainment system was very old and kept freezing. It was difficult to use."
Pros: "It was a fast flight."
Cons: "Leg room."
Cons: "Bumped off a direct flight from Toronto to Fort lauderdale with 6 other people. We all booked back in february. They are overbooking 5 to 10 percent now and kicking off the people who paid the least. There is no advantage to booking early only to be bumped. At the gate the AC employee said we would be credited 3 to 4 hundred dollars but we had to run to the customer service desk and then hop on an AC flight to Houston connecting with United Airlines to Fort Lauderdale. At the customer service desk a herd of people waited anxiously to be re booked and compensated. When they started handing out notice that they would send us 200 in the mail there was an uproar that fell on deaf ears. We then ran to get on the houston flight only to find out that flight was overbooked as well. We had to wait to see if they had any no shows. Fortunately I was able to stay on the plane. Upon arriving in Houston we were quickly ran to the United airline gate only to find out that Air Canada had dropped the ball again. We were not booked on the flight. Five of us had no seats booked , while I was booked to depart on a morning flight the next day with no accomodations arranged? Fortunately for us United Airlines picked up the ball and some how got us on the plane to Fort Lauderdale. Upon arriving around 1140pm! should have arrived at 5:20pm direct! we quickly ran to the AC terminal to get our luggage that was originally checked on the first flight. We were told that it would be there. AC employees with no concern at all told us it's not here and it would have been on the united flight that we just arrived on. After I explained that we werent even scheduled to be on the United flight by air canada, so there's no way it made it onto the plane. They looked at us like we were idiots, closed thier office doors and walked away. We ran back to the other terminal( shuttle buses stop at 11pm in Fort Lauderdale?) only to find no luggage again. Fortunately United picks up the ball again and traces our luggage back to Toronto, AC pulled it and left it sitting there. Because of Air Canada's inept employees I missed my rental car reservation and had to buy new clothes for the wedding the next day. They said they'd have the luggage to me by 11 am , it arrived at 11:30 pm the next day. Save yourself the hassel, fly any other airline other then the iconic continually bailed out by the federal goverment airline. If you know, no matter how bad your company and service is ,you will always be bailed out would you work hard? Probably not, hence the atrocious attitude and poor performance of this dead horse airline."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. For the most part crew was friendly."
Cons: "I'm 5'2" med. built and felt the seats cramped with little leg space. My seat had cold water dripping down onto my head and neck from the vent above the window. The flight attendant's response was "it will stop after a little bit". Disappointing."
Cons: "I found the crew members more involved in there own personal conversations rather than the guests.... Trying to get there attention was virtually impossible...."
Cons: "Leg room is insanely tight. Sure i'm 6ft but this is the first time I felt my legs were swollen when I finally stood up to deplane."
Cons: "Unhelpful crew,dreadful entertainment and dire food!"
Pros: "The service on the flight was fine."

Pros: "Being transported safely to yyz"

Cons: "Small plane. Poor service. rough landing"
Pros: "Good entertainment"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Felt like spam in a can."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so badly that I missed my connection to Paris and arrived a day late, which was NOT nice."
Pros: "nothing It was the worst flight I ever took . Plane was ice cold like a freezer everyone on plane was very uncomfortable. It was 3 hours late after we killed ourselves running through the hellish toronto airport. The us terminal was very hot stuffy and seats were limited as well as food options. the great canadian bakery was not adequate for a 3 hour wait and burnt bagel smell was sickening"
Cons: "nothing other than our bags made it"
Pros: "Pros: In flight entertainment is excellent (lots of movies, games, television, etc..) Food is pretty decent on international flights They offer free headsets on international flights There is no checked bag fee"
Cons: "Cons: The check in staff is slow and very unhelpful. They need additional staff to help with the long lines. They do not seat you with your family. (Many people on board were separated from their group unnecessarily and they make no attempt to put you together unless you ask at the gate. They refuse to do it before then.) They also overbook flights and put you on standby even if you pay full price and book your flight 6 months in advance AND get to the airport 4 hours in advance."
Pros: "The staff offered a hotel and voucher for for 24hr delay but I was still unable to make up for lost travel time."

Cons: "Small basic meals"
Cons: "Flight was great. Kayak was a nightmare to work with."
Pros: "Decent flight"
Cons: "Delays are part of travel, but they're ridiculous and I am unhappy with the delay leaving Minneapolis. It caused all sorts of problems down the line because it caused me to miss my connection, take different flights, and come into Munich much later than I had expected. Also, you Canadians don't have Sudoku in your magazines. Why?"
Pros: "3 1/2 hours late cramped stuffy with a very strong chemical disinfectant odor that was gagging passengers . Cabin was too hot and poorly ventilated. Only flight landing in Pittsburgh late Tuesday night and we were still forced to walk him from the very end of the concourse . Once we got to the landside terminal we had to walk past all the unused baggage claim area to the very end carousel. Pittsburgh airport management should be ashamed of themselves . No wonder there tax finance Taj Mahal is a ghost town !"
Pros: "that the crew was friendly"
Cons: "food was awful"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was nice, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "Our first Air Canada flight was 2hr delayed due to mechanical error. After a 2hr delay, we finally flew for 1hr, had awful turbulence on the way down, and got to Toronto only to find out there was no customer service desk. We missed our connection with Luftanza and had to fly Air Canada again. First off, we couldn't get on another flight until the next morning. Then the desk never called the hotel they gave us the voucher for, so when we showed up at midnight the hotel was fully booked and had no room for us. We had to fly into Heathrow instead of Gatwick (final destination was Brighton for an international conference). We missed the entire first day of the meeting and had to rent a car for 65 pounds each to take us to Brighton from Heathrow, finally arriving at our hotel by midnight. The customer service was non-existent for Air Canada. We literally are going to have to email them."
Cons: "Food was not very good. Could not identify the green stuff and the eggs were interesting."
