Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Cons: "Luggages did not arrive with the flight as it should be. It got lost in Sydney from Queenstown on flight SQ 6683 operated by Virgin Australia (VA 162)."
Pros: "Although business was full, it was quiet. Cabin chief was very helpfull and professional."
Cons: "food choices are not bad. TV screens are super bad. Resoulition is almost from 90's era first flat screens! One stewardess had friends in business. a couple sitting one after another in window seats. She spent most of her time chatting with them, taking photos while we were trying to sleep."

Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket.

Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."

Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest but it was adequate considering shirt trip"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."

Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."

Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"
Pros: "The flight attendants are professional, attentive, efficient. One suggestion, they didn't know to offer a nauseous passenger ginger ale. I let them know to give her some and she was very grateful. Also too much food! It's so much better than any other airline but very abundant and I feel bad when I only eat a small portion of the items on each tray. Otherwise great crew, plane, boarding, etc."

Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."

Cons: "The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."

Pros: "Awesome crew and food"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable.."

I really appreciated the check in service at Heathrow airport - amazing they checked our luggage and gave our passes through to Chch NZ. Chairs were comfortable. Good leg room. While we appreciate the lounge, they could have offered a wider range of options (a few more vegan options).

Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Pros: "The crew was lovely"

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "The attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "One of the poorest meals I have had in 50 years of flying do not like the seating configuration in business class"
Pros: "Very efficient trip."

Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "Solid friendly n professional flight crew."
Cons: "When checking in we asked about an exit row seat. The NZ official claimed the flight was full n nothing available. Once on the 2/3 full plane, 9 of the 12 exit row seats were empty. Bottom line was she was lazy and unprofessional in simply Lieing."
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
Pros: "My Dreamliner my seatmate the CREW! Flight attendant even made balloon for a little girl in shape of a dog!"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "The check-in process was extremely simple and easy. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. They didn't make a huge deal out of small problems, as so many seem to like doing."
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Cons: "I selected two bags on kayak but when I checked in at Air New Zealand they said I just had tickets. Was forced to pay the full price for the baggage."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."
Pros: "Watching movies made flt not being go by faster"
Cons: "Not being able to just order a beer....yes, I did on screen but still was not able to buy cuz said service was closed. This after flt attendant told me to use screen to order n pay. She eventually just gave it to me after trying to do it herself unsuccessfully."
Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"
Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."

Service

I've always preferred Qantas, and the service is still generally good, but someone has taken their eye off the food offering. Back from NZ it was noodles with a sauce in a cardboard box. No cheese and biscuits, no sweet. Air Tahiti/Air Cailin, etc.. give a decent meal while on International.

Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"
Pros: "Service from the moment of getting near the booking counter was excellent. Flight was on time and staff were great."
Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."
Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"
Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor legroom, felt very cramped for an international flight. The infotainment system in my seat, and some others didn't work."
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Pros: "the staff were exceptional. I was in a bright area trying to sleep. I had my beanie pulled over my eyes. the staff asked if they could suspend a blanket above my head between the two seats to shield the light."
Cons: "nothing, they were wonderful, on both flights."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."
Pros: "Wrote a story published in the Samoa News today"
Cons: "Never got my bag in Sydney and I am enroute to the Kingdom of Tonga now"
Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. Super considerate and very fun to talk to/be around especially on my first flight."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing! The entertainment was not necessary for such short flights and were still available. The pretzels were... well... pretzels so no complaint there. Overall great flight"
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Pros: "The flight actually arrived ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "Stewardess very rude"
Pros: "Yes, very satisfied"
Cons: "Provide more variety of snacks"
Pros: "Flight was on time. They fed us two meals."
Cons: "Seats in coach are incredibly cramped, and blankets are comically small. The food was pretty terrible and the vegetarian option not particularly nutritious."
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "Crew was kind & friendly. They found my wife and I empty seats where we could stretch out. Food was great too. No complaints."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Not a full flight"
Cons: "Not unhappy"
Pros: "Was with my husband and the crew was good"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "I would like that the seats were not so small I got 2 people with overweight and I was very uncomfortable the trip"
Cons: "in all the flight you did not have internet WiFi"
Cons: "Having to pay AGAIN for a seat choice. AND IBWAS MADE TO CHECK MY XARRY-ON BAG ALL THE WAY THRU TO ROME! WHY. WHY couldn't it only be checked to Philadelphia.?. That has taken place on other flights. Should not require checking a carry-on all the way thru on an international flight."
Cons: "I paid $10 for the WiFi service and it wouldn’t connect at all. I had a short flight so i never got to send my emails off. American Airlines should refund me my $10."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Communication"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving which caused me to miss my flight to Prague. The notifications about the delay and next steps for rescheduling the second flight were delayed and sent to the wrong email address."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Raleigh to Philly was cancelled so we missed the flight to Manchester. We booked , through Kayak, with British Air and paid extra for premium economy and the actual carrier, American, doesn’t know how to process a refund and no such seats are available on our rebooked flight 24 hours later so it has been frustrating."
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The flight was 30 minutes faster than initially scheduled. It was great."
Cons: "The flight left 10 minutes late, but on my positive comments, this was remedied in the end."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Pros: "Not over crowded and friendly crew."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All of abo e, many delays, no usb plug or refuse to show me, charge for luggage, no headphone."
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Cons: "Oh Gina, I would have checked my bag if only you had looked up from your phone for a second!"
Pros: "Smooth flight with no issues at all"
Cons: "delayed, missed connection, no assistance automatically booked for 24 hrs later connection, no accomodation travelling with infant, had to spend the night (total >12 hrs) at security post, no AA employee available to assist, horrible customer service actually AA does not know if there is such a thing as customer service exist!"
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"
Cons: "Flights out of RDU to Philly were late. AA will not let you get on another flight going to the same destination if your checked luggage has been committed to particular flight beforehand. You have to fly with your luggage."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"
Pros: "Love the direct flights from RDU to West Coast. Wish there were more cities on the list. The flight was delayed about 45 minutes after we boarded for take off. I hate sitting on planes idling. The seats are already uncomfortable, then add more time onto that to sit. But we made up the time in the air for an on time arrival. Hmmmm?"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight at dinner time and then the 3 hour time change, the snacks provided are not enough. You just have to remember to bring food on the plane and then risk annoying your fellow passengers with the food/dinner dining space. More checks of drinks would be nice too. Cost cutting measures, but minimal considering a packed flight and pretty high ticket price."
Pros: "- Great entertainment system and choices - Timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "- Marginal seat and leg room comfort for a 5'11'', 180lbs passenger"
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Short flight times, lovely staff , food and wine ok, not so crowded so more space"
Pros: "Everything was great. Comfortable seats & good service."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight was delayed because of a "problem with the plane"- we had to wait at the gate for 2.5hrs for the mechanics to work on it."
Pros: "Smooth, left on time. About an hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Pros: "The flight arrived on time with my luggage, and although I booked through BA, for the first time ever, they managaged to get my special meal request correct."
Cons: "I order a vegetarian meal in the hope I will get something edible. This was the worst airline food I have ever had. The plane was old so the economy class seats were larger than normal. There was, however, no in-seat entertainment. On the upside, I'm glad I didn't fly business class. Compared to the standard set by other airlines, the seats appeared to be from the 80's."
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Cons: "Flight attendants barely made eye contact and certainly didn't make us feel welcome in business class."
Pros: "The aircraft was not well maintained, middle holds were small and could not accommodate a normal hand bag. A side hold had to be taped to close it."
Pros: "Worst customer service I have ever experience"
Cons: "They canceled my flight to Florida due to hurricane then refused to refund my return flight ticket. How can I fly back if I never made it there. Bunch of thiefs kept my money and they never got me to my destination."
Pros: "Upon leaving Raleigh, N.C. Our plane was carrying a fallen soldier and a marine who accompanied him . They announced this and gave the other passengers the opportunity to walk to an area to watch the very solemn ceremony. It was all done with respect and handled timely. The flight still left as scheduled and arrived on time. Not that this was the most important part. Even if it had caused me to miss my connecting flight, the ceremony for the fallen hero was more important."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was great, especially the the wine/beer and hot meals on the long flight."
Cons: "Not enough leg room etc. for the long flight. Cushions and blanket were nice."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean flight"
Pros: "Super comfortable business class seats"
Cons: "Didn't take this flight because it was late and would have caused me to miss my connection. I got rebooked on a different flight that delayed me 10+ hours."
Pros: "Zone boarding"
Cons: "Very hot terminal quite sweaty"
Pros: "movies"
Cons: "food is never miss so nad"
Cons: "The flight got cancelled way in advance and nobody neither airlines nor webjet.com informed us about it. Also, nobody could replace our tickets for the next day either. So our flight didn't happen and we had to drive to Washington DC to find a flight from there. So we will never buy any tickets from Kayak or Webjet.com! Extremely poor service"
Cons: "Cancelled one flight, then delayed another one because they were waiting for a pilot. They offered very little help, citing that they couldn’t control the weather, meanwhile WestJet is finding & paying for rooms, shuttle buses and taxis to make the delay more tolerable and less stressful. We could only watch and wish we were flying WestJet."
Pros: "Food, service, seat (Business class), aircraft"
Cons: "No internet connection"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over an hour prior to takeoff due to "refuelling difficulties - plane fault. No coffee on a 6 am flight!!! No offer of water, snack whilst waiting on plane."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Great trip very easy very quick! Seats where comfy I had a good flight"
Pros: "Son enjoyed seeing Niagara Falls from the air"
Pros: "We got to Toronto"
Cons: "Those seats are tight. Also, the crew at the Toronto airport seemed to get mixed up a bit showing us where the transfer queue was."
Pros: "The upgrade with the food, and the entertainment"
Pros: "Crew on the flight were very patient, understanding and friendly. Ground staff were the exact opposite. Agitated, temperamental and unwilling to help or find solutions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily the crews fault. But frustrating as our flight both to and from Washington was delayed both ways."
Pros: "politeness of staff"
Cons: "all was great"
Pros: "The flight attendant were good and professional."
Cons: "There was an overbooking, so I gave up my place for someone else to travel in exchange of compensation. The flight back to Toronto from Atlanta was delayed by 2 hours and a half, which put me in risk to miss my connection flight. The plane was small and there was not enough space for mid size people."
Pros: "The service on the flight was fine."
Cons: "Wasn't able to check in to my flight before hand, so I had to wait in line to get checked in at the airport -- stressful!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The overall service was poor. One male flight attendant was very rude and disrespectful to two elderly passengers. It was NOT David. Charging $10 for entertainment was is terrible!!! Restrooms were filthy!!!"
Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seats were so close to together that whenever the person behind me moved, I got hit in the back. Anything that was dropped on the floor was hard to get since they were so close together which also made it hard to get in and out of the seats. The main meal was fine, but the second meal was mediocre."
Pros: "New plane with comfortable seats, good food, and decent entertainment selection"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew: food and comfort as good as it gets these days in Economy."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. Announcements were difficult to hear in the terminal; there was a step requiring all passengers to queue up as if boarding but instead it was a passport/boarding pass check. The two queues were not labeled, there was much line-switching, and the passport-check lines blocked the terminal for travelers for other flights... The incoming plane was late; we wondered why this passport check could not have proceeded while we waited instead of delaying our boarding once our plane arrived."
Cons: "Gate 91 was allocated on boarding pass. It was switched to 95 Android did not inform anyone of the 10 pax waiting at gate 91. We were informed by one of the passenger that went to figuer out how Come that only 10 pax waiting at gate 91"
Pros: "Only enjoyed entertainment"
Cons: "Quality & type of food Boarding sprocess Lack of carry on space Unprofessional crew Old plain- didn't realize still in operation Small seats Little to no leg room Fact you actually had to pay for rental of iPads Terrible entertainment system"
Pros: "Reaching my destination, that's the only thing I was happy about"
Cons: "The plane is old and seat are close to each others, it wouldn't hirt if they make extra space, afterall it's a long flight!"
Pros: "Good Crew The crew was sharp, efficient, attentive and very good."
Cons: "Better Food Needed Even though this was a short flight, the meal could have been better. The small amount of smoked salmon was inadequate. This meal has been served over and over. Increasing the amount of smoked salmon would at least be a step in the right direction."
Pros: "Great service good food and drinks love it!"
Cons: "There was a baby kept crying the whole trip but I know that's something you can't help. Hahaha but everything else was good"
Pros: "There is an on-board entertainment system. Stewards are very courteous. Things are very on-time. Decent selection of drinks."
Cons: "The entertainment system is pretty antiquated. The movies and shows on are pretty dated and also the touch screen is not very user friendly or sensitive. The USB port didn't work either on the outbound or inbound routes."
Pros: "The crew were extremely friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "I wasn't offered a meal preference, and was disappointed they couldn't accommodate me with a vegetarian meal. I also didn't enjoy the fact that the plane didn't have an integrated entertainment system, and that you have to pay extra to receive a tablet to watch movies..."
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to rush to connecting flight with only 25 min to spare from Toronto to tel aviv... Baggage is missing as well"
Pros: "Flying out RDU, it was delayed for 3+ hours without any reason. Took close to an hour to change flights at RDU with a very grumpy agent. I was told that I could delay a day and fly the same route the next day, or fly to Toronto, stay there a night paid by Air Canada. Was advised to stay at Toronto since the flight from RDU to Toronto delay excessively with high frequency (and it was delayed 6+ hour the next day). Flied to Toronto, was shuffled through different lines without getting anything. At 10:40PM, after arrived 1 hour 40+ minutes, sent to a line with more than 100 people in front of me..... :-( It's a horrible experience!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "A wonderful agent named Danyelle Mariner in Raleigh did an excellent job finding us an alternative flight when she saw that we would not make our connecting flight in Toronto. Thanks"
Cons: "There seems to be a problem with the Toronto flights in the afternoon. If they are all being rescheduled change the plan."
Pros: "- Friendly and helpful crew - No turbulence - No major concerns"
Cons: "- Flight was delayed for over 20 minutes"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a non-stop flight."
Cons: "There were so many things I didn't like. First of all, the departure time was delayed by 30 minutes. Not cool. Secondly, the plane itself felt very small and old. It was very cold inside the plane which made the ride very uncomfortable. Thirdly, there was absolutely no in-flight entertainment on this flight, making it a very boring experience. I would not recommend this kind of air travel!"
Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "I had legal rights to, as I tried to explain to the agents. They dismissed and mocked me, until 3 hours later. By that time I had missed my flight."
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, very nice, professional, accommodating. I woke up in the middle of the night and they politely gave me a glass of water, good food and drink service. I was so tired, I chose not to eat the dinner, so I can't speak to that, but the breakfast was juice, coffee and a slice of banana bread which was very good. Pilot was great, easy flight, easy landing. No complaints!"
Pros: "t"
Pros: "Air Canada has the best food, most leg room for economy class and super efficient. I will be using Air Canada often in the future."
Cons: "The flight was chaneed gates and not announced that it had been done, we just noticed that it had been reassigned. Not a big deal but it was a 10 minute walk to the new gate and could have resulted in a missed flight if we hadn't been paying attention. The flight was also delayed over an hour and still listed as an on time boarding for the original boarding time, people can make choices about eating or restroom breaks if they know they have an extra hour, also when travelling with a toddler it helps with planning feedings and naps so that the baby doesn't scream the whole flight."
Pros: "Great food and overall service for premium economy. Seats were more comfortable than economy I've had in the past."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment computers are extremely laggy compared to modern tablets. Air Canada should make friends with the Google and Apple's of the world. Should try to include more episodes of the tv shows rather than just a select few episodes."
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "This flight always takes off and lands on time, and has a friendly flight crew."
Pros: "Replacement flight was fine but third time original flight in early afternoon to LGA cancelled in the last eighteen months."
Cons: "Flight ac714 was cancelled. Put on AC716 which put me at LGA in evening rush hour."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable. Good service. But small overhead baggage space. Had to put my carry on under a seat. For those francophones, you'll find that the flight attendant's (there's only one) bilingualism is rather poor. YYZ Toronto Pearson Airport however disappointed me: very poor indications for connecting flights and gate areas."
Cons: "delayed every flight ,lost luggage"
Pros: "Nothing lost my luggage we had a delay on Dec 29 from Montreal got to Toronto 15min later we missed the connection plane and there was nothing y'all could of done no hotel rooms no coupon for food telling us that it was all booked wen we didn't not asked to be on the delay and me coming back on west jet on Dec 30 I've lost my luggage and kno body there knows were it's at"
Pros: "Available with little notice"
