Airline reviews

Pros: "On time. Like the 787."
Cons: "The vegetarian evening meal."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Food is always the best. I had the butter chicken for dinner. It was very delicious."
Cons: "I think this was just a personal issue for me only, but I would say the atmosphere. I felt the plane was humid and often at times, I found it hard to breathe. On one occasion, a flight attendant attempted to take my food away without asking if I was finished or not. I was annoyed by their lack of manners. I also didn't like having two blankets. There was no room under the seat in front of me, to put it anywhere. It significantly reduced my comfort. The passengers sitting next to me also had no respect when they asked me to step aside and was rude in general. It made my mood worse throughout the flight but I hanged in there. It was okay."

Pros: ":)"

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"

Pros: "Good entertainment. Flight tracker kept breaking."
Cons: "They don't come around with beverages hardly ever (twice on 13 hour flight) and they tend to skip the window seats. They tried to kick me off an overbooked flight even though I paid extra for a picked seat and booked months ago. Mediocre food. Tiny seats and I'm only 5'5". Will never fly again."

Pros: "Everything was good except....."
Cons: "The departure gate lounge for connecting flight to Vancouver was terrible.... very overcrowded, making for an unpleasant wait and boarding experience."

Pros: "Amazing airline and seem less travel"

Cons: "It was over $450 to try and change the short segment fligt from Christchurch to Auckland. I could have bought a new ticket for 1/2"

Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"

Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"

Pros: "flight crew are good, other general categories are average."
Cons: "Boarding in both Sydney-Auckland & Auckland-Vancouver are disorganized. No clear indication of when & where to line up. No flight delay message to explain when boarding time was long overdue. In particular, for the Auckland - Vancouver flight, one ground staff was telling economy passengers (in rather rude express) they were in the wrong line except there was never announcement. Overall, disappointed."

Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"

Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."

Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"

Cons: "My ticket did not say that it was a no luggage,no meal ticket & I printed off the E ticket & no where on the E ticket did it state no luggage.....I think that needs to be shown clearly when we book. I had to pay for 1 bag & it would have been $250 but ANZ did work with me &changed the ticket for $125 name-Marjorie Kalama"

Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."

Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."

Pros: "there were extra blankets."
Cons: "Cold air blasting for 8 hours."

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: "We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right."

Cons: "I was "upgraded " to a seat facing a bulkhead, so leg room wasn't an issue. However, I missed the last half hour of my movie, because the screen had to be put back into the arm rest for landing."

Pros: "Short, friendly people and was on time. Awesome all around"
Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Unlike a trip on Air New Zealand several years ago, there is actually enough leg room now so knees don't push into the seat in front. That is a huge improvement! The airplane we flew in this trip was a nice new one, very well designed."

Cons: "They could have given the amenities, which I think they forgot"

Cons: "Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down. Also, we were forced to check our carry on bags bc they weighed at check in- though we had already checked in online, more than 7kg!"

Cons: "I could not check in to book my preferred seating because my flight connections was a mixed carrier flight. Website did not tell me what was the issue so I kept trying. Also would have preferred it if I could have checked in online for my emirates routes but that option was not available."

Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Cons: "They changed my pre reserved seat without telling me and I was by the bathroom. Super uncomfortable the entire flight."

Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"

Pros: "What I like is the food served, the entertainment, and the toilet."
Cons: "Their services has drop, which is quite sad. As I heard from my Friend that Emirates is the best, but it seems not."

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"

Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."

Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."

Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"

Cons: "Customer service from the cathy pacific crew are not good at all.. I flight business to and from asia to the USA at least 3-4 times a year.. cathy pacific was such a disappointment.."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."

Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."

Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Not sure why we left and arrived so late, but it was annoying to miss the last flight out of Vancouver to my destination and have to find a hotel and stay the night. I guess lesson learned on expecting flights to always be on schedule. Sometimes things happen and they’re not."

Pros: "The crew is amazing. Particularly the FA in our section was amazing."
Cons: "No outlet charging for smartphone. Only USB charging was available."

Cons: "My seat would not recline."

Pros: "the flight itself was fine. the crew is professional"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and 4 days later I still don't have it. They are not being very helpful at all in recovering it or taking responsibility for it"

Pros: "Seat and legroom ok. Seats are on the narrow side if you have a large person beside you. Supper was excellent. Breakfast so so."

Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach."

Pros: "The crew was nice. Seat space really cramped"
Cons: "On my return flight from Hing Kong to Vancouver, which is a long flight, the passenger in the seay next to mine slowly encroached on my seat space to an unusual extent. The seats in economy are really cramped!!"

Pros: "Really good flight, no complaints here. Friendly and efficient staff."

Pros: "Very delayed flight that resulted to missed my flight going to davao"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."

Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to book seats until checkin"

Pros: "The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with."
Cons: "Would be amazing to have a little more room in the economy seats!"

Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hours"

Pros: "Staff was welcoming, everything was well organised, food was good. Journey was comforatable ."
Cons: "More choices foe veg meals"

Cons: "Didn’t like the seating arrangement. The check in counter was unwilling to accommodate us, even when we tried to check in four and half hours prior departure. We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."

Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Average flight. Nothing special. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed."

Pros: "Nice plane, roomy seats, good food. Much better than other carriers in economy."

Cons: "Typically cramped seats (I know its what I paid for, but still)"

Pros: "They were able to provide drinks and food at a timely matter"
Cons: "The long flight"

Pros: "First time ever taking a roundtrip across the country with this airline and I am ~TO THE MOON~ excited over my experience. Comfortable seats, excellent food, excellent service, excellent movie choices on board. I can't wait to continually book with this airline on every flight I take across the country!"

Pros: "The food - best in the sky"
Cons: "Cathay's business class seats are not as wide at Singapore Airlines'' business class seats"

Pros: "Smooth, delay-free travel from take-off to (smooth) landing on the tarmac! The pilot has some skill to make it like a gliding landing without bumps!"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific does not participate in TSA PreCheck."

Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Another passenger request me move to a window seat from a front row with leg room seat and it was hard for a big guy to go to and from washroom. Plane was hot and sweat throughout the flight making it very uncomfortable. Ran out of food choices for breakfast really fast."

Cons: "I did not like paying more than the advertised price for my airline ticket... Straight after clicking the confirmation button , I received a call and was informed that the advertised price had increased by $50. It was still affordable so I agreed to this extra charge. Even after 24hours had past, the flight price had not changed online. I was lied to!"

Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"

Cons: "late boarding."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Professional, cheerful, willing to help. from take off till landing"
Cons: "Seating was atrocious. I specifically asked whether I could get an exit row seat (i am 6'4"). I was even willing to pay the extra 200$ for my partner and myself. I was told that there were no open exit row seats. But on boarding, the entire exit row was empty. It stayed that way through the flight. Super annoying."

Cons: "Though nothing completely egregious, my interaction with crew on the flight were the worst I have ever experienced when traveling. The first was after attempting to go to the bathroom mid-flight. This was an 11 hour flight. I'm not sure whether the captain forgot to turn off the seatbelt sign during the middle of the flight or if he anticipated turbulence, but the seatbelt sign was on for at a minimum, 45 minutes. After waking up I had the urge to go to the bathroom and walked back to try to get there. Once close to the bathroom a flight attending pointed in the other direction and said "sit down and put your seatbelt on." I expressed that I had to go to the bathroom and he again just repeated "go put your seatbelt on." I stood for another few seconds in disbelief that I would really be turned away from using the bathroom in the middle of a flight and during this short time of standing there he again repeated: "go put your seatbelt on." I would like to stress that there was absolutely no turbulence at this time. Whether or not this is protocol and any attendant would have told me the same, the attendant could use lessons in how to properly speak to people by having a better tone AND saying please. Explaining the situation would also be helpful instead of just using your power to command another adult to do something. After returning to my seat, I saw multiple other people also try to get up to go, who received the same fate, so it was obvious he was trying to adhere to the rules, but clearly if the fasten seatbelt sign has been on for over an hour at that point, you should be able to be an adult and put the situation in context; people need to use the bathroom on a long flight. My second poor interaction was at the conclusion of the flight. I was listening to music on my phone and hadn't heard the captain announcement that we should begin to prepare for landing. On ANY other flight I have EVER been on, the crew will come around and verbally ask people politely to put their seat up, return trays to their stored position, and unplug any USB electronics. One of the crew, without asking me first or even making eye contact, came up and unplugged my phone from being plugged in and manually put my seat up to upright position and walked away. This might seem like a simple thing, but you should NEVER touch someone else's property. Further, to place me upright without warning was extremely rude. If this flight had been the only flight I had with Cathay Pacific, I would never fly with this airline again, because it would have seemed to me that your crew lack social skills, are impolite, and may have language barriers. Luckily, my trip was round trip from NY to Bali and as such there were multiple connecting flights, and I had good experiences on all the rest. I really wish I had gotten the name of the 2 individuals I had a poor experience with, as I don't think they will help you in securing future customers."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and the entertainment was great"
Cons: "The other guests were loud and rude on the flight and none of the staff seemed to care."

Pros: "The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay"

Pros: "I love the hot meal they serve."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"

Pros: "Good service. Love that you can have wine with dinner! Good size blankets provided."
Cons: "They called us to board early and then we stood there for about 10 minutes before they actually started letting people through the gates."

Pros: "We travel quite a bit and use different airlines. Actually we had never heard of Cathay Pacific but loved the whole experience. The aircraft was CLEAN, the people were so friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased-also it was price friendly."
Cons: "The seatbelt buckle is at a weird angle so ones arm is on it."

Pros: "Nice service!"

Pros: "Great staff. Very friendly and helpful for those in need :) i wasn't in need but I've watched them help passengers every flight I've taken with Cathay pacific"

Pros: "Liked the added legroom and seating of ecomomy preferred."

Pros: "Service, Food, and every aspect of the flight was the best I've experienced in a long time."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say at all."

Pros: "Beautiful plane and it was well kept. Nice service. Very soft landing."

Cons: "The entertainment system constantly plays media you can't control during the full takeoff and landing times, you can't even turn off the screen. This was particularly annoying during a nighttime landing. Also most of the movies had their content edited."

Pros: "Mechanics of aircraft. Boarding."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Not enough staff for such a large plane. Food was not good and took a long time to get our first meal. Could not understand English announcements because she was not very fluent. Probably would not fly China air again."

Pros: "I had the economy XL seat and was quite comfortable"
Cons: "Other than earphone (one ear) not working, all others are good. That was the 2nd pair with the same malfunction, so I suggest changing the earphones."

Pros: "Good staff and very helpful"
Cons: "Not much variety of food in a long flight"

Pros: "Absolutely Fabulous Crew, very attentive to Passenger Needs."

Pros: "The staff was friendly, fast, and the on boarding was organized. Not like other airline, China Airlines has made an impressive impression with their staffs friendliness, organized policies, and great movies to watch."
Cons: "I got economy, the seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Very enjoyable and comfortable flight"

Cons: "The food from Canada was very Canadian, but on the way back way more traditional chinese"

Pros: "Food, crew, handicap assistant, stewardess"
Cons: "No screen/tv"

Pros: "Honestly the turbulence really did not make this an enjoyable ride. I actually could not wait for us to late. It was rather petrifying."
Cons: "The food was not great and again the seldom announcements about turbulence made this a difficult ride."

Cons: "Ontario Airport for international arrival is confusing. I think this has to do with more the airport than the airline...although the airline could have helped too. There is no one to ask questions once you exited the security area. The signage is incorrect for airport shuttle to the parking lots. In order to get to the parking lot, one would need to first take a rental car shuttle to the regular terminal and then change to an airport shuttle."

Cons: "Dirty"

Cons: "I dropped my fork on the floor. The 1st crew, who did not understand Mandarin came back with salt and pepper,even I asked for the fork in English. I asked her again, but she impatiently told me each meal plate came only with one set of utensils."

Pros: "They used a more modern plane for the longer haul part of our two flights home from Bali and appreciated the slightly bigger seats for the longer flight. Good inflight entertainment options."
Cons: "Terrible food."

Pros: "The flight was 40 minutes faster than expected"
Cons: "The economy seating in this airline are trash"

Pros: "Good entertainment choice"
Cons: "Average economy plane food"

Pros: "The air line reported 2 of my luggages as delayed and I still have not heard news on my 3rd missing luggage"
Cons: "How can u loose a luggage"

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Late Boarding."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The English of the crew wasn't fantastic"

Pros: "The food and entertainment was excellent. Thr crew are friendly and luxurious plane comforts make it worth the trip paid for."
Cons: "Not enough fresh air, breathing quality was poor before take off. We had fumes from jet gases leaking in through the air conditioning, but once the plane departed the quality improved."

Pros: "The boarding by zones is a great way to do it and they implemented it efficiently. The crew were outstanding - pleasant, smiley and courteous and made me feel welcomed. Meals were delicious."

Cons: "Seat cushions were VERY hard."

Pros: "Lovely gracious Staff."
Cons: "One negative employee. Not so comfortable seat on new plane."

Cons: "I need, wheelchair service for this trip but very disappointed the service. I carried my bag to find my seat by my myself. The crew only helped me to put up the bag and my umbrella stick until I asked."

Pros: "If you're seated on a row with collapsible monitor that stows like a tray as opposed to a monitor on the back of the seat in front of you, then you must end your entertainment or whatever movie you're watching earlier as the plane descends. The other monitors are played right up until the plane comes to a complete stop."
Cons: "My luggage was unlocked but the combination was locked when it landed; therefore I couldn't open the luggage."

Pros: "Enjoyed everything about my flight.Awesome service from the crew most welcoming.Plenty of leg room and comfortable seating.I have already recommend this airline to family and friends."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Older entertainment system and still decent"

Pros: "They got us there. Good movie selection. Good wine"
Cons: "Normal Chinese airline seats are small and hard just lick setting on a rock. Didn't eat the food."

Cons: "Horrible seating, entertainment needs to be updated. Customer service at counter not so good."

Cons: "Food was not that great. I expected more in premium ecconomy"

Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "We had a free movie on a 3.5 hour flight but not on the 6 and 9 hour flights. It's time to step it up for long haul flights!"

Pros: "Service of the staff. Not as attentive as I would have liked, but definitely wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment was poor, comfort was horrible (may be my own fault as i'm tall, but i don't recall getting an option to pick a seat prior), and boarding could have been better."

Cons: "The crews were unorganized and rude. The food has no taste."

Pros: "The flight was fast. Seating super tight. Food was mediocre. But because flight was fast, didn't have to suffer tight economy seating for more than 11 hours."

Pros: "They should be concerned about food hygiene"

Pros: "Checking In - Easy and Fast Staff - Spoke some English and business like. Entertainment - Good selection of movies and games."
Cons: "Seats are made for smaller passengers... if you are a larger frame, you will have a tough flight."

Pros: "everything was good including leg room"

Cons: "No entertainment for kids, no toes, TVs were not functioning and several times I asked the crew that kids bored and want to play or have something to watch but nobody cared. My children didn't liked the food at all, as there was no fish or egg or veg meals, only pork at breakfast. I had two young kids with me, but were treated as regular passengers and we lined up for long time for boarding and kids got very tired. At washrooms there was no soap, tissue or towel papers."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Comfort was horrible! We were cramped in like sardines there was absolutely no room! To walk to rest for 13 hour flight. Crew is stiff a feels like they're paid to smile."

Pros: "Cabin crew was great. Good service"
Cons: "Boarding was poorly organized."

Pros: "This flight was great and the attendants were very good and professional...awesome time..."

Pros: "Attentive staff, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding, very cramped seating"

Pros: "The customer service and the food."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. 1.5 hrs was barely enough to get through baggage claim, customs, baggage recheck, customs again, subway ride to Denver United terminal and sprint 30 gates only to make it 1 minute before the gate closed."

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "So incredibly cramped and no seat screens to watch movies. Bumpy that that’s no ones fault."

Pros: "The professionalism and attitude of staff was excellent. Also in Prem Economy the leg room was good."
Cons: "The snack and drinks were not at the same standard as everything else. I expected to be better in prep economy. There was no entertainment also on board while the internet was not free"

Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."

Cons: "UNcomfortable seats. They don’t recline."

Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"
Cons: "Didn't love the wait on the bus to get to the planeb but I guess that is unavoidable"

Cons: "Awful. Recieved flight delay info then recieved another email hour before flight moving it back tonoriginal time. Based on your emails my wife and daughter missed their flight. Total disaster. Makin me reconsider wver using kayak again"

Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."

Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"

Pros: "Left on time. Employees were competent and friendly, and kept us appraised of things in flight (turbulence, etc)."
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like"

Pros: "One of the crew members was excellent, kinder than most. My bag made it on the flight in spite of the delay and very tight connection."

Cons: "Missed my flight."

Pros: "No entertainment and have to pay extra for any eats."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"

Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"

Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."

Pros: "My seat"

Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"

Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."

Cons: "The boarding process is chaos. By the time my group is called, an announcement is made about running low on overhead space and some may need to check in their carry ones. Happens on every United flight? On the flight from Vancouver, the wifi wasn't even working."

Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."

Pros: "Tv, food, outlet to charge phone."
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly and seats were small and uncomfortable for a 4.5h flight."

Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"

Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"

Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"

Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."

Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"

Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"

Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."

Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."

Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"

Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."

Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."

Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."

Cons: "The seats had no infotainment system No food Cramped"

Cons: "We were trying to print our boarding passes and computer didn't recognize our bar code. United employees were trying to help us and they couldn't print it either until we approched counter. We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and 45 minutes because engine did not start. Had us deplane. Caused us to miss our connecting flight and we had to wait 6 hours for another one."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"

Pros: "I gave it a four because the airline put safety first. Though we had to change plane due to some funny sound made by the engine, the wait was worth it. The crew were helpful and the actual flight was smooth."

Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays. That was after not noticing issues with the plane until after waiting for late passengers and taxiing out. We arrived 4hrs late for a 3hr flight. They also only had one agent to rebook flights and assign hotels at the end even though they had hours to know the connections would be missed."

Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."

Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Cons: "The plane is very old"
