Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Pros: "It's a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."

Pros: "Breakfast was excellent"

Cons: "Delayed Flight Seats seemed very small for an Air Canada Plane"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
Pros: "The usual smooth short flight"
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized - staff should make sur only the people in the zones called are in line. Not everyone from all zones. The zones 3-5 line isn't helpful. They should change it to "boarding" and indicate only thsoe called to board should be there. Otherwise, they need separate lines for EACH Zone."
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and pilot was knowledgeable"
Cons: "My tv screen didn't have sound !"

Cons: "Not so bad..."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"
Cons: "Air Canada staff appear to wear their job dissatisfaction on their sleeves. They don't smile enough and often when they do its to each other like there's an inside joke we don't know about."
Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Pros: "- plane had more legroom than the usual - plane left and landed on time, an always welcome outcome for an AC flight - in flight movie selection was good"
Cons: "- plane was overbooked, and boarding took a while - staff only offered drink refreshments (ex. coke, coffee, etc) once, rather than the usual twice. The other time they just came by with water, which the flight attendant accidentally over-poured and spilled some on the middle passenger between me and the attendant. Good thing it was only water... - more turbulence than usual, but out of the control of the pilot"
Cons: "Audio jack for entertainment weren't working."
Cons: "Flight was delayed forced us to stay in Ottawa an extra night. Only compensation we received was a $10 meal voucher!!"
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"
Cons: "There was NO complementary food for a 5 hour flight. I didn't have a credit card to purchase anything"
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Very slow service"

Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."

Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "I was rebooked so my new flight AC 705 was directed straight to Toronto. Only thing I disliked was that gentleman who was left at the gate for my original flight at 8:30am. He was rude!!!!"
Cons: "Many other travelers were not wearing their masks and the flight was completely packed."
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Crew very professional and provided excellent service."
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was nice friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Free food. This was a three hour and 55 minute flight. You could at least give a sandwich. I don’t fly often but, I was with a group of us. I take snacks everywhere I go so I was not humbug it would have been nice."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Cons: "Unending crying children, non reclining seats,"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Pros: "all was very good"
Pros: "Can’t think of anything nice to say..."
Cons: "On a cross-country flight from San Francisco to DC, you would think United could provide more than one snack option that is void of any nutritional value, and perhaps they could provide alternatives for their patrons with allergies. Is fresh fruit really too much to ask for on a 6-7 hour flight??"
Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled because connection was missed due to United"
Cons: "My seat was changed without my knowledge or consent and no one was able to tell me why or fix it. I spoke with a united customer service supervisor and have yet to hear from anyome about it."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive"
Cons: "Slow boardidng, delayed departure, overcrowded flight, no overhead space"
Pros: "There were five flights out of our gate and we couldn't hear who was supposed to board because three people would be cross talking at the same time. All united flights."
Cons: "Delayed departure and several gate changes"
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Pros: "My wife and I arrived at airport in Tampa and tried to check our bags in and United ticket counter wasn't working properly. It was malfunctioning. A United agent helped my wife and I very professionally and got everything back to working like it was supposed to."
Cons: "The check in machine not working properly."
Cons: "Inspire of making it clear all through booking, check-in and seat assignment, I was assigned a seat in an emergency exit. I told crew before I boarded that I could not open the emergency exit at assigned seat, due to an injury. I had to board almost last waiting for them to find someone who would take that seat. Then they put me in a non-reclining seat. I was given the wrong free beverage and the crew never came back. So I had nothing to drink on a 4+ hour long flight."
Pros: "I liked kayak, recommended by a friend and my new booking application. Thank you."
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Pros: "I was wirried about making the connection. Enddd up with an hour which was ample."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "Crew was great. Comfort was only good for me because I was in an exit row."
Cons: "United wouldn't open the doors even though the plane was right there, didn't pay for my accommodations because it was Lufthansa's delay that caused me to miss the flight, then couldn't book my family on anything earlier than the same flight the next day, which they then overbooked and almost couldn't get us on the plane again. I had to sit separately from my family."
Cons: "missing USB charger had to "burn fuel" prior to take-off not enougb space for carry-on"
Pros: "Fantastic minus the fact this flight was canceled without any notification."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that my flight was cancelled until I tried to check in online a few hours before. Then I was booked on a terrible next day combination. I had to book with another carrier for $400. I missed out on time and money."
Cons: "The boarding process is ridiculous. Takes forever because it is totally irrational and driven by favoritism. Plus they don't enforce the baggage size rules."
Pros: "Nice people."
Cons: "No entertainment. The snacks tasted old and I wasn't even sure what some of the things in the mix were. The flight seemed really long."
Pros: "Nothing I cuold think off"
Cons: "Too many delays, change of gates, maintenance check is too overwhelming. My Houston flight is unbelievable. We stayed were delayed for almost 5 hours . Wifi is not working"
Pros: "Friendly service, very professional."
Cons: "The seat back in front of me had not been cleaned. Had soda all over it. I didn't really care tho. Had to sit in worse places."
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Coach seats only recline an inch at best Knees were up against the seat in front, no room to move. Seats were as hard as rocks Boarding group 5 has no luggage space $25 for checked bags seems a bit much for the first bag. Requires app to see anything."
Cons: "No free tv to watch during the flight"
Cons: "We were in Cleveland and our flight got cancelled. We confirmed a flight out of Canton. Drove the hour only to find that flight to be cancelled also. Drive from Canton to Chicago and arrived at about 2 in the morning. We had tried to change our flight to leave two days earlier. The fee for changing flights was more than the tickets were initially but when you cancel it its tough break for us."
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Cancellation policy is just abusive !!"
Cons: "Is a seatback tv too much to ask for?"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Two and a half hour delay. We sat on the plane for over an hour with no information at all for the vast majority of our delay. No apologies, nothing. Only text message updates let me know that the departure time was being pushed back over, and over again."
Cons: "3 hour delay out of Albany. My flight was canceled out of Newark and had to wait about 23 hours for next flight. I wasn't offered hotel, food or lounge to accommodate such a lengthy delay. Airport's should be able to accommodate delayed passenger's with better entertainment and comfort."
