Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Kind and funny!"
Cons: "The weather, but pilots did great despite it."
Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Pros: "Their plane"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "They took care of you. Meals were good. Excellent airline"
Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding and take off was delayed by about one hour, with no proactive communication from crew about the delay. Passengers waiting to board individually questioned why we had not started boarding yet when information screens in the airport displayed otherwise. We did not start boarding for a 12 hour international flight until ten minutes to scheduled take off. The first time we were informed about the delay as a group was after we had entered the aircraft."
Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."
Cons: "I was not given a chance to make a seat assignment on the Alaska legs between Seattle and LA and ended up being stuck in a middle seat going both ways. There,was no option during booking to make a,seat selection. This was also true for the LA to Auckland outbound leg. This is an area needing improvenent."
Pros: "United flight crew was good. Check in was good and on time. Flight arrived early, smooth flight and landing was smooth."
Cons: "Recheck through LA TSA to domestic flight with United, was further hassle, might as well get naked to get through. Seat recline, too limiting (not asking much, just a bit further back). Pretzels were stale. Cabin crew seemed more friendly with dead heading pilots than passengers."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
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 very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Pros: "Two toilets in Premium Economy, comfortable seat with blanket, headphones, and large pillow"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "Cool temps in plane"
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"
Pros: "Foot rests, pillows, blankets, nice seats, and they had free in flight entertainment as well as dinner and beverages"
Pros: "Nearly always enjoy flying Air NZ and this was no exception. Friendly efficient service."
Cons: "Not getting a choice of meal due to being last row of seats."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."
Pros: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."
Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."
Pros: "already commented above, everthing about the same...staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."
Pros: "Very friendly and good service- price was very high for the distance/time"
Pros: "Flew from LAX to NZ and then to Tonga. Both flights were amazing with the best cabin crews. I would highly recommend Air NZ."
Pros: "I have not flown international in a long time. It was confortable and entertainment was great. The only thing I did not like is that with New Zealand air one can only check in 1 bag for free. We stayed in NZ for 18 days. The other airlines let you check in 2 bags. For an international flight 2 bags is only fair. Thanks."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat back did not recline, free still water not available on touch screen ordering"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "The pillow I was given smelled terrible, it seems they may change only the pillow case, but re-use pillows. They really should provide fresh pillows."
Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."
Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "breakfast, coffee"
Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."
Cons: "After a three hour delay and missed connection and rebooked flight, that is when the service declined. We went through 4 different lines in the Dallas airport, almost missed the rebooked flight due to miscommunications and shuffling of where we were supposed to be. And now delayed luggage."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful"
Cons: "The food must have been a bit off, though very tasty. Luckily had a 2 hou layover with nice lounge toilets"
Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"
Pros: "crew was nice. but we had massive delays and the attitude of the employees at the gate and on check in, was terrible"
Cons: "it was their fault that the plane was delayed (mechanical problems), when i asked to be transferred to jfk instead of newark, the employees at melbourne said it's not possible. basically it was their problem but refused to be accountable to it or to accommodate passengers"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"
Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"
Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."
Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"
Pros: "The on boarding process"
Cons: "The plan was in very poor clean conditions. The seats were discussing to sit."
Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"
Cons: "We did not make this flight"
Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"
Cons: "This is the worst travel i've ever had. Got stuck in sydney because the first flight was delayed. I booked emirates and payed more to be on an emirates flight and to avoid flying with qantas. As qantas operated the first delayed flight i missed all my connecting flights and i'm still teavelling right now. Still in sydney. Never going to book through here again!"
Cons: "Seats very cramped with 6 children sharing seats invarea"
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was very average for business class"
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."
Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."
Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."
Pros: "Good Food and ok services"
Cons: "2 hrs delay. Entertainment system froze and no sound from time to time. Dirty seats."
Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Business class seating is not of international standard. Time to put upgraded accommodation in business class on this sector. I will not be flying this sector again with Qantas."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful 5 stars."
Cons: "Food soggy. Legroom is my biggest bug bear. Really appalling."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and lots of entertainment choices on the flight"
Cons: "I checked the flight prior to going to Auckland airport and all showed on time, by the time we cleared immigration and were in the airport we were notified of a six hour delay due to mechanical issues. I realize these things happen, but earlier notification would have prevented an 8 hour stay in the airport. The seats are pretty close together for a 3.5 hour flight. After hearing a lot of positive comments about Qantas, this was not a great first impression"
Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."
Cons: "2 hours late leaving"
Pros: "Loved the leg room, kind attendants, great meals."
Cons: "The technology malfunctioned the entire flight. It was less than ideal."
Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."
Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."
Pros: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."
Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful, the crew were all very polite and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "Good crew, spacious seats for economy. Good food."
Cons: "I wish they let us pick our seats, but they were assigned."
Cons: "There are too many announcements on the screen before you can start watching entertainment. It takes about 15 minutes."
Pros: "Really enjoy flying first class."
Pros: "New aircraft was more comfortable"
Cons: "I think they did excellent"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat with insufficient legroom wouldn't recline. Inadequate overhead storage (full flight)"
Cons: "The seat went back three inches. I was about to spasm after 4 hours. No movement whatsoever. The flight crew could have moved me but I suppose they were told not to as I had a cheap ticket."
Pros: "It was standard AA service"
Cons: "After flying in Delta Comfort+, American’s forward economy section is just nothing."
Pros: "Crew was tight, friendly, flight comfortable & painless."
Cons: "Not allowed unleashed dogs to take my seat or be in my flight"
Cons: "Sat waiting for gate for 30 min"
Pros: "Horrible staff at LAX boarding gate. Been treated horribly by incompetent and rude AA staff."
Cons: "Hire only friendly people for this type of job. Hire people knows basic math. Train their well on how to communicate with people."
Cons: "There was literally no entertainment for over three hour flight and our flight was delayed an hour while we were on the plane."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The gate change was not announced on my phone app (changed from E7 to D49). I hate leaving out of Terminal E at MIA. There is no point to having TSA Pre-Check if you have to stand in line with people who don't have it. I have to remove my liquids and laptop. It's such a shabby, run-down terminal."
Cons: "American Airlies no longer partners with T-Mobile for free WiFi. :-("
Pros: "Crew was good, flight was on time"
Cons: "Old plane, no TVs"
Pros: "Jesus, the flight was phenomenal! He lightened up the atmosphere with his wit and grace."
Pros: "Pretty standard flight"
Cons: "Inconvenient timing and overcrowded with obnoxious children sitting on laps. No attempts made to change their behavior by crew or parents."
Cons: "Ran out of food that I like"
Pros: "Love FLIGHT WITH AMERICAN AIRLINES."
Cons: "I hate Americans boarding process"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tight seating leg room non existent."
Pros: "Landing and deplaning"
Cons: "Literally everything else"
Cons: "Didn't like the two hour delay, especially when I was notified only a half hour before boarding! This seems to be a normal thing for American Airlines."
Pros: "Great service in first class"
Pros: "They got us there quickly."
Pros: "Ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Seats were too tight and too close together."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Outlet did not work"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding. Excellwnt service in first class. Comfortable ride."
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent travel experience."
Pros: "The crew was amazing - agreeing to work extra because it was Christmas eve and they wanted us all to get to our destinations for Christmas. They were very gracious and helpful."
Cons: "We were over an hour late to leave. I understand the reason for the delay because of weather. What I was disappointed in is that the delay was not announced until our actual scheduled time to leave. It meant people coming to pick me up didn't get the change information in a timely manner."
Pros: "The first leg had awesome pasta.Then, on the 2nd leg, Philly to Denver, they had a "pay for meal" option for turkey with Chutney sandwich - again, delicious. I should add that the service was very good as well."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Seats were really uncomfortable up and reclined. Overhead baggage was full by the time I boarded and there was no enforcement of the carry-on baggage sizes... This needs to be addressed and contributed to our lack of comfort, noting this was the last leg of an 18 hour journey. My body still hurts today after a good nights sleep."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment selection was excellent; great movie selection, wifi connection, and flight details. A winner! So much so that I chose to binge watch movies and not sleep!!"
Cons: "the new seats are awful"
Pros: "Tv and power outlets"
Cons: "This one attendant didn't get her name but was very cold to me"
Cons: "I felt like cattle. Horrible for long haul flights."
Pros: "Missed the flight. Money was not refunded."
Pros: "No excuse on a night flight does the temperature to be 80 plus degrees on the plane."
Cons: "The plastic seats and extreme temperature was brutal. They shut the AC off of down somehow."
Pros: "The crew were as nice and accommodating as they could be considering the situation."
Cons: "Three planes with "maintenance" issues and not able to fly? Including flights that weren't ours. Boarding, re-boarding, leaving four hours late and waiting an hour for bags in Denver."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Cons: "Dinner was cold, seats cramped, toilets ran out of paper, flight attendants were not nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats Crying child"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3.5 hours while the crew cleaned up a fuel spill and we waited for a different co-pilot."
Pros: "I fly this route with American pretty often. The cabin crew was good. Everything else seemed sub par."
Cons: "Our take off was delayed, officially due to fueling the plane, but if the plane wasn't fueled ahead of time, someone failed to do their job properly. Also, while I'm starting to think that A320s just suck mechanically for landing (they always seem to land harder than a 737), this one seemed a little extra rough."
Cons: "The food was awful. Fish was rubbery and smelled bad, eggs were a gloppy mess, everything was too salty."
Cons: "When your on your honeymoon it sure would be nice to have a seat next to my husband like we requested."
Pros: "Food was great and the service!!"
Perfect flight, crew, and landing.
Easy getting to boarding waited a hour in the plane before takeoff, made us miss our next connection
Flight delayed. Baggage missing
Did not have available earbuds to use the inflight entertainment... food offered was gross and could not be eaten.
Air Canada personnel were so patient and helpful during our COVID test validation and checking our bags. Thanks, Air Canada
I did not use this return flight as I was going to Europe for work. The flight coming to Montreal 7 days prior was flawless. There was a 50 min delay that was not unexpected. Nothing wrong on Kayak or Air Canada about this flight.
Pros: "Food and beverage service was great. Wine/beer and hot meals provided on the long flight were really appreciated. Excellent restrooms on the 787."
Cons: "Not enough leg room etc. for the long flight."
Pros: "The crew that greeted us (and sorted out seats) was excellent."
Cons: "We had booked seats together two months before our trip; when we checked in (both legs are Star Alliance, but Air Canada—one leg both directions—did not allow any on-line seat choice or changes), we had been separated to different rows altogether (and since it took two Air Canada trips to get from Vancouver to Denver; the first had mechanical difficulties an hour into the trip and had to return), and there was no way to change it online or at the airport."
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Was almost three hour late..."
Cons: "I was made to pay for my carry on because of weight. I didn’t understand that when I booked. I am also certain that many other carry ones were more than 12 kilos."
Cons: "Terribly small seats"
Pros: "new airplane, some juice offered, good entertainment, staff was ok on the return flight (first class)"
Cons: "nothing to eat, no leg room, poor wifi, hidden fees for checked luggage, damaged baggage on the return flight. I asked for some more water on the first flight, and the guy gave me a look as if I had asked him about his soul."
Cons: "Small plane, no room for cabin luggage"
Cons: "boarded and closed gates 30 min early without warning. almost missed it"
Cons: "Never been on a smaller plane. I've traveled private planes with more room!! Air was so bad, even the food smelled bad and couldn't even think of purchasing any. With a flight that long and people waiting for stand-by, you'd think a larger plane might be in order."
Cons: "My flights were so behind I missed my connection for Toronto to Tel Aviv and was rerouted to London and then Frankfurt but the plane was late getting there as well. Air canada had no crew on the ground and over and hour wait for customer service on the phone so i had no way to find out what my reticketing status was. I was passed off to numerous other airlines and sent through the airport to the incorrect terminals in heathrow causing another missed flight. Air canada did not accept the responsibility to maintain my reservation and get me to my destination efficiently. Even when I spoke with a phone representative the person was rude and never sent confirmation of my flights so I had no reference point for flight numbers or air lines. All of his added up to more than 13 hours of delays on what was already a 24 hour trip. Worst travel experience of my life."
Pros: "Had to cancel due to flooding at my house. Air Canada was super kind and offered me a credit. Thank you!"
Cons: "we took off 3 hours after our actual take off time due to the cargo door not closing. we sat on the plane and they kept the exit door open causing very cold air in the plane. the door should have been closed to keep the heat in. for the 3 hours we were not given or even asked whether we might want coffee or something to drink or some kind of snack, they gave the business class something tho."
Cons: "Late flight the crew did.t care and many people missed connections. The customer service at the airport desk was understaffed slow and rude. They we're not helpful in trying to get new flights booked and I felt like it was asking a huge favor even though it was Thier delayed flight that made me miss my connection."
Cons: "Why no food or snacks?"
Pros: "No food, an hour late"
Pros: "The gate agents were polite and the boarding was relatively smooth. Food was fine and flight attendants were Excellent!!!"
Cons: "First point of contact was incredibly rude. First she told me she couldn't find my reservation. Once she did, she gave me a lecture about my married name. Next she refused to let me take my carry on bag saying it was too large even though it fit on all flights to Montreal. Once I proved it would fit with the luggage sizer she had moved on to another customer and ignored me for 10 minutes while I stood there even though my boarding passes were printed. When I got to the flight, I found it could have been gate checked but there was no need as the flight was NOT FULL and my bag fit with no problem at all in the overhead bins. In 35 years of flying this was the worst experience I've ever had."
Pros: "on time, friendly staff"
Cons: "never on time, late flying both way's"
Cons: "Headphone socket broken on this older airplane. Only purchased food available so n/a."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Why not due the security briefing while we are sitting there delayed?"
Cons: "Left our luggage in Montreal!"
Cons: "The time that I need to wait for my connections....I was traveling by myself with my two daughters 6 and 2 years old. And been honest wast pretty hard. Also, nobody told me about the permit that I need to have to go to Canada. I did the process online at the airport. Was fast but pretty stressful."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The plane was old and looked like it was going to fall apart. My seat was torn and the back of the seat in front of me was broken. Not my favorite airline by far."
Pros: "No complaints about the flight attendants"
Cons: "Seating very tight and uncomfortable. Luggage handling is the worst I have ever seen. Out of 6 in our group, 2 had lost luggage and 2 had misplaced luggage. Airport customer service didn't care if items were lost or misplaced. Very unprofessional all the way around!"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "Crew was rude and poor communicators."
Pros: "Th flight attendants were nice. The entertainment system was working and the movies were good."
Pros: "good fast flight with great flight crew"
Cons: "food was mediocre"
Cons: "Minimal cabin service. Plane arrived late. Almost missed connection. Officious cabin attendant."
Pros: "Air Canada personnel made sure I made the connecting flight from Paris to Denver through passport control and the repeated safety checks in Montreal. The small aircraft was spacious even in economy."
Cons: "A male flight attendant was unwelcoming when I finally got to the plane (being late was not my fault). Did not want to help looking for a spot for my normal size carry on. When I pointed out one above him, he left my bag there and just walked away. I am 69 years old, 5'1"."
Cons: "previous flight was late so we had to be rebooked. The line was insane with 3 agents. The 3rd said go to the other 2 lines. The second went on break leaving one agent. A manager came down and gave the sorry here is our corporate email speech to two girls in line but left without acknowledging all the rest of us waiting. It was a mess. When I got my ticket she was like here you go without explaining anything or a sorry. When I asked for a few details like am I in a hotel overnight or when do I leave she gave me an eye roll. When I got to the plane after traveling all day and waiting extra hours there was an empty row right in front of me. I tried to lay down but the attendant made me move because I hadn't booked comfort plus even though the flight I booked I would have been in Denver hours ago. Things happen but it's all how you deal with it and air canada does not deal well."
Pros: "Prompt and courteous. The Embraer was not new, but in good shape. Entertainment was minimal - especially in comparison to the Dreamliner we flew from Europe to Toronto. The flight from Toronto to Denver was about 4 hours long, but the only included refreshments offered were sodas, water, or juice. Air Canada could do better on the food front. (Other food was available for purchase.)"
Pros: "Again, the entertainment options were the best part of the flight."
Cons: "It was a short flight, but it was still very cold. I didn't ask for any changes because of my previous experience, so I just wrapped up as well as I could and bore the chilliness. The crew was less than friendly."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The gate changed 4 times and there was confusion at final boarding. The Toronto airport TSA agents have absolutely no manners and need to be retrained or fired. Traveling has become very stressful and try make it worse. There was a Hispanic girl, heavy set with curly hair yelling at us to approach the scanners. I talked to her asking her to be gentle with us because we'd just flown for 7 hours and are suffering from time zone changes. Another yelled at my seatmate about his travel size after shave. She was a black Caribbean. She snapped at me about the importance of security and that he was rude for saying he didn't care that she'd throw his stuff away. I told her that he said he didn't care because he's tired and quite frankly, a trail sized aftershave that she doesn't approve actually doesn't matter and is nothing for her to get worked up about. Her colleagues were all staring at her as she started throwing her weight around and making unprofessional nonverbal noises. Then there the room where you weight for your name on the screen to appear if your number is 1 or 2. The people in there are extremely gruff. There was only one Hispanic woman who took my slip of paper that had my pic who said please and thank you. Then when you go to customs to get your passport signed, the guy at counter 10 starts arguing with me for no reason. I put 1 family member on the customs form. He asked if anyone is traveling with me. I said no. He clarified that one should mean an additional person and not just me traveling. I said it wasn't clear and I didn't know. But he decided to get argumentative with me about it until I said ok and walked away. Your TSA process is a nightmare. I did not experience that at Heathrow, Vienna, Or Tel Aviv (all places that have recently experienced terrorism). I didn't even experience it in my arrival town Denver. Toronto TSA is very very poor."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was great!"
Cons: "I didn't like that there were no screens to watch and I didn't know I needed the app on my phone to watch movies until I was already in e plane and too late download it."
Pros: "That I eventually got to Denver"
Cons: "Poor planning no backup aircraft I knew status via apps before staff did"
Pros: "Their was a two hour delay, the planes cabin was at about 55-60 degrees and due to bumpy ride...service was delayed (obviously not the fault of anyone). Just overall, uncomfortable experience!"
Pros: "On time, courteous, great movie selection for the very long flight. Food was decent."
Pros: "Nothing to like or not like. Classic small (Embraer) flight for 3 hours. Nothing special one way or the other."
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Pros: "Wonderful flight.... great crew!"
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "A quick flight between the two cities."
Cons: "After we all boarded the plane, there was an issue to be resolved. This meant we were stuck on the plane, mostly in our seats, for an hour before we took off. This meant there were numerous people on our flight who either missed or had to run to their next flights."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "My flight was severely delayed."
Pros: "I liked the ticket price."
Cons: "The seat was very narrow with absolutely minimal leg space, and a carry-on bag was not included in the fare."
Pros: "The crew was so polite and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing could be improved for this short flight!"
Cons: "Delta Global Services is the contract company for UA and Delta in MISSOULA. After a great flight to MSO from Denver, we have been sitting in the plane while DGS tried to figure out how to get us off the plane. No management is here to make decisions. Horrible company that is managing United’s flight"
Pros: "The captain was wonderful"
Cons: "The crew were jerks"
Pros: "These people have no idea who or what United Airlines is. They work for Delta, and make sure they tell everyone about it."
Cons: "See above. The flight itself was fantastic. Larger planes are the best! Thank you!"
Cons: "Over two hours delayed. Had to carry on carry off my bags that were heavy. Messed up my schedule. Had to incur extra charges at San Diego destination due to the inconvenience."
Cons: "Delayed flights leading to incredibly tight connection times, staff inconsistent with messaging re the source of the delay, zero compassion for customers, offering $700-$1,400 to get off the plane when you charge $200 to change a flight 2 weeks in advance is especially galling! Will not fly with United again whenever there is a viable alternative to my destination."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Horrible uncomfortable plane"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed out of Mpls 2 hours so we had to rebook everything since we would miss our connection in Denver to Honolulu. The process of rebooking was terrible -- took almost 2 hours standing in line and the booking agent wasn't knowledgable Had to make an additional stop in LAX and arrived in Honolulu 5 hours later than we were supposed to. VERY disappointing experience all around!"
Pros: "I liked the flight was a fast one from San Antonio to Denver and that it wasn’t too crowded."
Cons: "I didn’t like all the excessive noise from the plane and kids."
Pros: "Flight was on-time; no delays; great crew! I also liked the fact there was a person at the gate to let us know where our connecting flight gate was - that was really helpful!"
Cons: "In flight entertainment (archived TV/Movies) not provided (other than through personal electronics); but that didn't bother me - flight between Santa Barbara and Denver isn't that long."
Pros: "The flight got us back home alive."
Cons: "mechanical delays in Tokyo with only fair communication especially after we were in the plane."
Pros: "Crews were great, customer service was great! Rescheduled several times due to weather."
Cons: "Sitting on the ground at the wrong airport for fuel to wait out the fog in Denver."
Cons: "The aircraft was full and they had a nonworking lavatory. And I asked the flight attendant that the lavatory was broken and he told me no there was somebody in there and he lied."
Pros: "Check in was super easy. Seats are tiny. The screens on the backs of the seats are annoying, with nothing worth watching."
Cons: "An hour late which made me have to run to the next gate which is not pleasant for a 70 year old with a bum knee."
Pros: "a little bit more foot-room than my previous flight on a different airline."
Cons: "My family was made to suffer due to United's inability to get all passengers off the plane in a timely manner. We all suffered for 25 minutes in a hot plane. We got nauseous from the heat . We ad to sleep on the floor of the airport in CO because we could not get a flight for that night. We missed an important Military graduation that is once in a Lifetime Experience. Your lack of customer service is appalling and I hope That I never have to experience that again."
Pros: "Staff was great, and the few delays that occurred were fairly minimal and it was clear that the staff/pilot did their best to keep things timely"
Cons: "These seats and spaces are incredibly small, my body is so sore! Also the internet costs money? I've travelled with other airlines that include Wi-Fi for free"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are tight, food is a few pretzels."
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience all around. Didn't get home till midnight"
Cons: "Kayak sent me a push notification saying flight was delayed. Arrived at airport, it was scheduled for on time. Airline wouldn't let me or my bag on the flight meaning I had to wait in the airport for 4 hours until the next flight out."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "The flight out went very well and the United staff were all friendly, very helpful individuals in all positions."

Pros: "The crew were pretty quick and responsive and the seats were pretty good."
Cons: "The dinner was alright but the breakfast was awful. The breakfast was the worst I ever had on a flight and the only thing I found edible were the little cookies that came with it. I had the omelette meal and it made me sick taking even one bite of it and the smell was pretty bad too."
Cons: "I think United is all about themselves and not the customer that group boarding is the worse and I travel first class and there was no food on the plane they had the nerve to announce it did not get a meal I do not think that is fair for $159 the company that I work for is about fifty of us and I will not be recommending any of them to you guys your special seats is only about who wants to pay for it like I said only about yourself United"

Pros: "Flight back was delayed 10 hours and my daughter was stuck at airport and had very little sleep . Upset about this experience and won't fly united ever again"

Pros: "Crew and staff were great!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours so we had to move to next day."

Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding went smoothly. I'm glad that they now offer complementary small snacks."
Cons: "I can never get the entertainment to work on my personal device and the seating is always tight in economy class."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class on our connecting flight and my husband and i sat together. That made up for the first flight, because our seating separated us three, which I didn't like."
Cons: "Delayed flight to Denver and our seats were not together."
Pros: "The communication via Kayak was great in notifying me there was a 25 minute delay."
Cons: "Not seating with my kids but they loved the sense of independence."
Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Pros: "My connecting flight was way late, but the plane was held for me and a few others in Denver. Because it was the last flight of the evening I don't know what I would have done if left at the airport indefinitely. I am grateful the plane was held. And regret any inconvenience this may have caused others."

Pros: "WiFi was awesome"
Cons: "Wish the TV preview was continuous & pay for movies but watch regular TV work no charge"

Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "There isn't anything I would say that I didn't like. I just would have to say it was overall a good experience"
