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."

Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Pros: "The seat was super uncomfortable and they switched out flights 3 times so the layovers were extremely long."
Cons: "Not switching our flights three times and not accommodating us like we had originally paid for."
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Cons: "Great flight. Would have been nice to have on board wifi."
Pros: "Good for a sheot flight"
Pros: "Great and attentive crew. Solid in-flight entertainment. Pilots got us to destination 20 mins early!"
Cons: "1) It's pretty standard to offer a small toiletries pack (eg. Eyecover, toothbrush/paste, etc) on long-haul flights for other airlines. 2) Felt ripped off paying $50 for "preferred economy" seats that looked/felt identical to standard economy seats. Should be marketed as just priority boarding."
Pros: "Crew good, seat pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Seating choice was unavailable and we were stuck with two middle seats in a row of 4 across. Air NZ tried to bribe us into staying overnight and taking a one stop itinerary the next day."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Foot rest and seat recline was broken. Food was also just okay."
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: "Nice seats in Business"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty so it was much more comfortable than the flight out. Movies were great"
Cons: "The food, economy has no room."
Pros: "Movie selection is good and food is pretty good."
Cons: "Very tight in economy. I’m 5’ & normal weight and felt cramped so if you’re any taller...you’ll hate it."
Cons: "Boarding and take off was delayed by about one hour, with no proactive communication from crew about the delay. Passengers waiting to board individually questioned why we had not started boarding yet when information screens in the airport displayed otherwise. We did not start boarding for a 12 hour international flight until ten minutes to scheduled take off. The first time we were informed about the delay as a group was after we had entered the aircraft."
Pros: "Have flown most carriers to Australia and NZ. Air NZ by far the best. I mean, I am flying cattle class, so its never going to be great. However, compared to the other carriers available, the seats are the most comfortable and have more legroom. If you can afford their sky couch, do so. Food is edible (and, to me, most airlines are not) and was nice to get WiFI all the way across for just a few air points."
Cons: "Would be nice if the seats had a foot rest, but this particular 777 did not. I have short legs."
Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."
Cons: "Movies"
Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Cons: "If the customer is given the option of special meal - 1. the special meal should be what one selects. I selected Hindu meal as per option and was being served Veg Jain Meal. 2. Should be made available. Though I booked the flight for both me and my wife and the special meal request was for both, the wrong Veg meal was made available only to my wife. Something is not right with their system. One you serve what you make us select and then the system is recording only for one passenger."
Pros: "staff was lovely"
Cons: "didn't have a second pillow in business class bed was too flat for me. no other extras given. disappointing"
Pros: "Skycouch a MUST for long haul flights."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."
Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
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."
Pros: "- Not a full flight, so empty seat next to me - Great in-flight entertainment - Great staff service"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "We made our connection, just barely."
Cons: "Faulty equipment presented as weather problems caused almost hour delay."
Pros: "Crew and plane are awesome"
Cons: "The flight itinerary as delayed"
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."
Pros: "Personal seat entertainment system, good choice movies& tv . My seat was comfy for coach, free wine was nice."
Cons: "I booked this in October and chose 2 seats with one being an aisle seat. I was moved with my wife to the two middle seats in a row of four, like a second class citizen. There was no meatless options for food. Cabin temperature varied wildly requiring several clothing changes in a cramped seat I didn't select."
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Pros: "already commented above, everthing about the same...staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."
Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."
Pros: "United Code share. Very poor boarding. Service is poor, food is poor. But compared to some US Airlines they are probably good."
Cons: "Well for every US airline. Improve everything."
Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight, good onboard entertainment. I liked the selection of movies and NZ tv programs. The food was delicious and I love that complimentary wine is served."
Cons: "My only complaint was in regard to the children's meals. We ordered children's meals ahead of time for our 2 kids. On our flight from SFO to AKL, no problem but on the return flight they only brought us one child's breakfast. I asked a crew member for the other one. She told us it would be brought over but never was. So my son had to wait until the regular meals were brought and have one of those. Not a big deal but it was a little annoying. Also, for the return trip dinner, they served delicious Kapiti ice cream with the adult meal but no ice cream with the kids' meals so my kids were super disappointed about that and my husband and I shared ours with them. Again, not a terrible offense, just a little annoying."
Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Loved the new planes"
Cons: "Too bright in the cabin, the pink lights were a little hard on the eyes"
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly, helpful and good humored. The in-flight video and audio choices were outstanding. Meals were good but not outstanding."
Cons: "I suppose it is good marketing to make you walk past the amazing seats in business/premier class on your way past "Premium Economy" back to economy class on the Boeing 777 -- but it did make me wish I had a few thousand dollars to throw away on 13 hours of being pampered. Economy seats are pretty narrow. I am of average size and I was often bumping and being bumped by the passenger in the adjacent seat as well as by people walking up and down the aisle."
Pros: "Very attentive crew, layout, comfort"
Cons: "I enjoyed everything I wa"
Cons: "Would have been more exciting to land early if our gate was ready. Better to wait on the ground than their air I guess but after 11 hours on a plane the last thing you want to do is wait longer. Realize that's on the airport and not the airline, although there should be communication there."
Cons: "I was issued a ticket with a window seat as I had requested. However, when I boarded and sat in the seat I was assigned, I was moved because it turned out that the couple that was sitting next to me had purchased the seat so they could lay down. I was seated at another window seat, but it turned out the couple in that row had paid extra to have that seat empty as well. I was not only re-seated before the plane took off, but then I was re-seated THREE more times until finally being put in a middle seat after the flight was in flight. To top it all off, the plane was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to my final destination."
Pros: "Newer interior design, food was pretty good, entertainment system was touchscreen and had some nice new features, bathroom taps had a motion sensor (it's about time!), clean aircraft and modern led lighting."
Cons: "We had seats right next to bathroom doors. The design should make sure there are no seats in that location."
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "The distance between the seats in economy is inhumane."
Pros: "premium economy! excellent service in LAX by QF ground staff on transfer"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful, and the food options for vegetarians were great, and the entertainment selection was great."
Cons: "My seat did not recline, but I told a flight attendant and I was able to get a better seat."
Pros: "movie selection was good"
Cons: "air was stale, food was just okay"
Pros: "It's a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"
Pros: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "Not a lot to like. Some flight attendants were nice. Others not so much."
Cons: "Filthy toilets at the beginning of the flight. If they were ever cleaned they didn’t get behind the toilet or the walls. The walls stained with something dripping. Paint peeling in toilet. No room at all. I am small and with seat in front pushed back I couldn’t move."
Pros: "Generous & kind flight crew, lots of in-flight entertainment, and a smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."
Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."
Pros: "Crew member Trevor was funny and the perfect host. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and there is no privacy ... worst Business class facilities I’ve ever experienced. Seriously substandard might as well fly economy or better still use a different airline."
Pros: "We sat on the runway for an hour. The pilot communicated frequently about the delay. Efforts were made to connect passengers to their missed connections."
Cons: "Several of the flight attendants were rude. The food was not good. I should have known since the flight attendant serving me had not tried any of the options and couldn't recommend any to me. The plane does not have enough bathrooms for the number of passengers."
Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"
Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Pros: "The way your seats reclined: back/head your typical recline but add your seats bottom sliding forward. Best sleep I have ever had while in International economy. Sadly our plane to Australia from Los Angeles did not have the same seats. Entertainment selection excellent ! Great line up of brand new and older movies. I was able to use my noise cancelling headphones in your jack which was a big plus."
Cons: "Paying an extra $30-35 just to choose a seat. Enjoyed sitting in the back of the plane however meal selection was terrible as the front of the plane always fed first so by the one it was our turn there was only one option - terrible “southern chicken” Or the Greek Inlet Which was just ok."
Pros: "Food on Qantas is better than domestic U.S. carriers and it's nice to still experience good service."
Cons: "It is frustrating that most airlines never leave on time anymore. They should be required to pay each passenger $50 for every 15 minutes they are late. It's also terrible that seats have become so cramped. My biggest fear is to drop something at my feet because then I can never reach it. Sigh."
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "Terrible procedures in Sidney and Los-Angeles with uncertainty, broken schedule , chaos and wasting passengers' time."
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"
Pros: "Was able to quickly check in and get through security. The front counter staff were friendly and efficient. Minimal waiting to board."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. My seat was sticky and covered in what appeared to be food of some sort. Flight attendant wiped it off, but it wasn't clean by any means. The seat belts were twisted and had food and crud stuck to them. When I changed my clothes the next day, there was food and stains on my black pants from where I sat on the dirty seats."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "Great selection of movies, i liked that the economy cabin at the back of the top floor of the a380 was more personal than a larger economy cabin. Crew were happy to serve me drinks throughout the flight after the halfway point when i started drinking"
Cons: "I would love love love to see airlines recycling the majority of the waste generated during flight..."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"
Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was packed full of recent big movies. I was travelling with my partner on separate tickets due to us having different final destinations. The Qantas staff was able to re-arrange our seats together for the long flight over the Pacific. We also got to celebrate New Year's twice, since we crossed the International Dateline."
Cons: "I was not a fan of the A380 prior to my flight, and was even less of a fan after. The boarding in Melbourne was chaotic- for some unexplained reason, Qantas felt the need to quarantine the seating area around the gate. This led to a minor stampede as all 5,000 passengers thought the flight was boarding. The Qantas staff at Melbourne, from the check-in desks, to the boarding crew were all apparently over-whelmed. It wasn't any better upon arrival at LAX- the baggage area was chaos as our arrival apparently caught the LAX baggage handlers by surprise. I had a four-hour layover in LAX, yet still managed to miss my connecting flight after an excessive delay getting our checked bags, the line through customs, and rechecking in through the TSA - and that was WITH an expedited screening pass."
Cons: "The food was terrible. By the time the meal cart came to ou row, all the got meals was out and we have no choice and was served with the cold ham salad that looks like left overs, both my son and I lost our appetite looking at it. The crew didn't apologize and gave the impression that we either take it or too bad. Won't be recommending this airline."
Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"
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: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for food in American Airlines codeshare flight."
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Cons: "The entertainment screen stopped working twice and I had to ask the crew to fix it for me twice. They were helpful and fixed it, but it was a bit of a hassle."
Cons: "Because of an equipment problem, we missed our connection. Qantas booked us on an American Airline flight six hours later for the LAX to JFK segment. It was a much smaller plan, no food included, and the seats we paid for were not provided."
Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible."
Pros: "The crew manager worked tirelessly to move rows of passengers to other seats because the entertainment system didn't work for a bank of passengers on the long haul flight."
Cons: "Our entertainment system didn't work and we had to split up to move seats."
Pros: "Great service as always!"
Pros: "check in, boarding, and baggage claim was relatively quick"
Cons: "online check in did not work at 9pm before the flight- i was unable to select a seat woman at the check in counter was not friendly. i also asked if it was possible to have a window seat and she said " i dont think there are any available" *prints boarding pass* rather than "let me check" *checks seats* food options were limited- in past experiences with qantas i wouldve assumed meal was chicken or beef and a vegetarian option. this flight was fish pork or beef. fish and pork are polarizing proteins for many people. fish is also malodorous."
Pros: "Leg room plus space between window and aisle seat"
Pros: "Food is good which is being served hot , even the bread is being served hot . The food is of the right portion .The crew is doing what they need to do for the passengers , quiet efficient , smile quite a lot thus making them feel more comfortable . The toilets are being kept clean . Keep it up !"
Pros: "The inflight service was very friendly. Flight was good, smooth."
Cons: "Flight late arriving c. 30 mins. Could not get the entertainment working on a 5+ hour flight."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good, that was about it."
Cons: "Service was so poor. Being in economy they treated you like you were more of a nuisance to them then a customer. Got one drink served to me, 3 hours in, on a 14 hour flight. Our first meal was 3 hours in, and was served 30 min after the people next to me. Trash and dishes were not picked up and when we asked attendant he asked us to bring them to the cabin ourselves! after sitting with them in front of us for an hour after dinner. Window screens left up during flight omitting sun glare making It hard to sleep. been making the LAX to Brisbane or Sydney flight to 8 years now, Qantas has progressively got worse while Virgin customer service remains as a high standard. Looks like sales on Qantas will no longer entice me, I'll be sticking with virgin"
Pros: "Great price Service was great Updated on everything from gate change to flight on timen"
Cons: "Didn't book through Kayak on my previous flights"
Pros: "Excellent service in every aspect on the Qantas flight! The time on board was just over three hours, and still we received a full meal, blankets and headphones, and had personal tv screens where it was possible to watch the latest movies. Well done!"
Cons: "The headphones were bad quality, it was difficult to understand what was being said in the movie."
Pros: "The flight was on time and very comfortable with tons of food and snacks and great entertainment options."
Pros: "Friendly attendants; a lot of service available."
Cons: "Movie selection was minimal and mostly outdated; food was small portions and less than interesting choices."
Cons: "The ticketing experience almost cost me missing my connection. I did not get my con# or my second boarding pass so after customs I was forced to go back out and wait for a bus to get to a different terminal. I waited 30 min. Very poor handling."
Pros: "The plane was new and clean. The crew was so friendly and welcoming. Anything we needed on our flight they were more than happy to oblige and always did it with a smile"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were really limited. Movie options were mostly older movies."
Pros: "Some crew members are excellent and some are flat."
Cons: "Food is kind of bad"
Pros: "Crew great. Seat was a major let down, too small."
Cons: "Just the seats really."
Cons: "Nice crew. Newer airplane"
Pros: "I was excited to come back to the USA after a long vacation. When we arrived at the airport, the security started asking me questions immediately even before I checked in. They demanded I show them the ticket before it was even printed. When I explained that I was trying to check-in for the first time. They told me I was going to be reviewed upstairs and put a sticker in my passport. I proceeded to check in and just walked thru the normal security measures. After scanning my bags in security, I discovered there was no security meeting and proceeded to my gate. After the gate, everyone in line was subjected to a second security screen. This was a manual search and all articles were removed and repacked again. Then we proceeded to the plane entry where everyone needed to verify passport and ticket again. Later in the flight, I was having indigestion problem from my documented medical acid reflux problem and asked for a cup of water. He said sure and walked away. He never came back again.10 minutes later, I pressed the attendant call button again. 10 minutes later and no one came over. 15 minutes after that Albert came back over and said, "I see you have your call light on, please put your seat back up again." I can complied and he immediately turned off the light and walked away. 10 minutes later, Albert came by with the water cart and parked it right behind my seat. He proceeded to hand out water to everyone behind my seat. 30 minutes later the water cart arrived and I finally received my water (75 minutes after I asked!) Thanks Albert, I'll be following up with your management to see that disciplinary action is taken."
Cons: "See above. The above problem caused me discomfort, pain, stress."
Pros: "Ilana, the attendant at the check in was so amazing!!! She went out of her way to find our friend a seat close to us. We just loved everything and everyone about Fiji airways. THANK YOU!!"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Breakfast was pretty average"
Pros: "Food, comfort & on board entertainment not the best but for the price of the flight it was well worth it. The flight crew and those on the ground in Nadi were amazing. Fantastic service all round. Don't forget to use the Premier Lounge in Nadi if you're there for a few hours. FJ$100 for full lounge access. It was an absolute pleasure. Best way to get to the USA from NZ."
Pros: "Nike complaints good food everything was on time"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "We did not get any notice as we were in the flight from figi! When we arrived we were just told flight has been cancelled and we should make our own hotel arrangement as next available flight is tomorrow"
Pros: "Didn't like anything, meal service was terrible"
Cons: "Never liked anything and will make sure not to take that flight ever again"
Cons: "IF it weren’t for the freezing cabin temp, I wouldn’t have needed. blanket that smelled like everyone’s feet had been wrapped in it. The breakfast was lukewarm, and some parts were even still cold that should hve been hot."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job."
Cons: "Security at Fiji was rude and redundant. Never have I had my bags searched 5 times before boarding a plane."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food"
Cons: "Very limited leg room"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Liked seats, leg room, customer service and TV."
Cons: "It was freezing cold during the 10 hour flight !!!!"
Pros: "Had my backpack searched 4 times....one on the walkway on a folding table they set up...as I unhooked my bag (due to them breaking the two zippers in an earlier search) i asked what they were searching for and she saod "we search all American's bags" I said "just Americans?" she responded "Indians too"...then said "go ahead" after I mentioned the zipper issue.....destroyed any chance this would be an enjoyable flight or that I would ever return to Fiji, shame beautiful islands."
Cons: "Fiji airways lost about a third of the baggage on our flight and no representatives would give us any information. Then when we were sent to file a claim for lost luggage, no one was at the office for another hour. While I understand things happen, the way that they handled this situation was completely awful."
Cons: "Curry, breakfast sausage, amount of leg room."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and efficient. it was a pleasure to fly with them."
Cons: "The entertainment system had EXACTLY the same movies/shows we had on the flight over. Since we flew like 14 hours, we saw everything we wanted to see the 1st time. Maybe offer different choices on southbound and northbound itineraries."
Pros: "Same as above.."
Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"
Pros: "We got sone roomy seats it was nice"
Pros: "As always, the crew was great. The friendliest in the sky."
Cons: "The food options were less than stellar, but still ok."
Pros: "Previously took 4 other Air NZ flights on this trip and loved them - great entertainment, very pleasant and helpful crew. The long flight from Fiji back to the US was partnered with Air Fiji and it was just a bit above average compared to our typical experience with Air NZ. The boarding experience was really good and much more organized than most airlines, which was nice. Plenty of bathrooms available, they came around with water frequently, which is a must on these long flghts, and every seat had their own screen for entertainment, which is very nice."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, not much leg room especially for such a long red eye. Movie and TV selection was limited compared to typical Air NZ flights. Half the crew was somewhat unpleasant and overlooked passengers trying to give them trash and even charitable contributions when they were going around collecting specifically those things. (The other half of the crew was the more typically amazing, customer oriented attitude.) Not sure if Air Fiji just over works its crew or what, but it was not as pleasant. The food was also back to typical just ok airplane food, not normal for Air NZ which has great food and lots of it. We also were not able to pick our seats for this flight, which was not ideal for comfort or location."
Cons: "The food,rude staf ,small and uncomfortable seats,outdated entertainment system. A staff member had the nerve to tell me to let a first class customer go before me to the restroom (although I was in line to use my assigned restroom) because “he was first class and his assigned restroom was occupied.“"
Pros: "The landing at LAX was the best landing I experienced in years (I make about 60 flights/year). Cabin crew (like all Fijians) was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "For your very long flights better seating in the economy (something like BA Economy +) would be very much appreciated, even if the cost of the flight was higher. Otherwise the only option is to fly business class, which is more than 3x costlier."
Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I like the friendly service, the food is good and.they are very accommodating"
Cons: "The air conditioning is quite extensive so it is rather freezing. And the boarding seems very disorganized"
Cons: "No free entertainment, no food, unfriendly staff"
Pros: "Movie Selection was great"
Cons: "Boarding was a disorganized mess. Different groups in lines and no clear announcement. Food was plastic, even in Business, to the point that I just stopped and snacked on breakfast bars. Crew was uninspired, at best. Lots of shoulder shrugging during any discussion on issues. One even complained about the flight length (we were not delayed). Landed and waited for 10 minutes for jetway to a bus then a 10 minute ride to customs. Good thing they are a near monopoly."
Pros: "Excellent service from crew members. Genuine Fiji hospitality"
Cons: "Angled seats and limited IFE"
Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."
Cons: "Same as above comment. Plus something needs to change about bringing water bottles on to the plane from Fiji airport. It's just dumb to put people on a flight for 10+ hours with no water. Not happy with this experience."
Pros: "As comfortable as an air flight can be. Friendly staff"
Pros: "Service provided was nothing less than desirable! They were great!"
Cons: "Boarding but that was due to the passengers. They don't listen"
Cons: "Boarding passes were not properly issued causing us to miss connection in LA. Flight left Nadi an hour late and although pilot indicated time would be made up, a 10+ hour flight resulted in less than 15 minutes of time made up. There is no possible reason a flight of this length could not make up the entire deficiency. We were told customer service reps would be available for passengers with tight connections. The customer service rep basically told us there was nothing she could do since we had to go thru customs. Will never fly this airline again. Fly to New Zealand previously on Air New Zealand and will use them in future. Price difference is not worth the service deficiencies."
Pros: "Time of arrival"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Leg room I paid for actually feels like room on my normal domestic flights. Need more 'leg room'. The food is so processed, it's beyond horrible. It was not edible to me. Boarding was chaotic and unorganized. Too cold on the plane."
Pros: "The meal was nice and the crew was pleasant. The flight was relatively smooth and there were no mix-up or problems with my luggage after the initial issue of having to pay to check in my carry-on due to being overweight."
Cons: "Cramped seating a bit much for such a long flight. The attendants were a little slow to pick up the rubbish from snacks, drinks and meals."
Pros: "Loved the friendly staff and the food was surprisingly tasty, although some meals were considerably nicer than others. There was plenty to do - great options of movies and shows - and the electronics worked perfectly."
Cons: "Wished WiFi was available and eye masks were offered."
Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Everything was great! Can't wait to go back."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The entertainment onboard"
Cons: "For the last couple of times I have used Fiji airways they are horrible. So strict! Would let me bring on grey goose which I bought a duty free in Los Angeles... They made me throw it out. Then they try to find any little thing wrong if it's with your bag, or carry whatever they try to make you pay for EVERYTHING! they were about to take away my 3 liquids which was less than 3 ounces because it wasn't in a plastic bag. ALL OF THE OTHER AIRLINES I HAVE USED HAVE NEVER DONE THIS! So I had to leave security go back outside. Come back in and get a plastic bag. If your bag is even a pound over weight, regardless of the fact if you really can't pay it. They won't be nice and help you out at all like some other airlines do for example Air New Zealand, AA, I could go on. Also, more than half of the staff are so condescending and rude, they like refuse to be nice and help out a passenger. If I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO AND AS A LAST RESORT then I would use Fiji. But for right now I will NEVER USE THEM. And I will suggest to my family and friends not to use the airline!!"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Very accommodating crew as we were traveling with my elderly grandmother."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Fast and easy flight"
Cons: "It’s was very good flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew all the way around"
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant."
Cons: "Free food options were basic (pretzels or a cookie)."
Pros: "Nice Crew. Very accommodating."
Cons: "The input for the headphones were not working properly at my seat location on the flight. Seat #10c on a A321 Airbus from Miami to L.A."
Pros: "Nice crew. Newer comfy seats"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "That the flight attendant took pity on me when she could see how flustered I was boarding and let me move up to the business class section."
Cons: "The gate agent was awful! She decided that my bag was too big to go onboard even before I put it in the measurement thing. I did have to rearrange some items - but then it fit! Regardless of the fact it completely fit on my first leg of the trip."
Cons: "Changed my flight time bc of Max 8 which ruined my meeting schedule. Then the outlets in my row were not working so I could not do work or watch entertainment."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. Seats were ultimately uncomfortable. Not helped by the backs being loose."
Pros: "The crew was probably the only positive thing of the flight."
Cons: "Late boarding because of downsizing plane and overbooking, than sitting on a plane for an additional hour after boarding completed while it was very hot inside. Departed and landed with a delay. Very old airplane with no individual fans above the seats, no outlets to charge devices and no entertainment system."
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Amazing flight..,......... Great service"
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers bringing hot food on plane. KFC and McDonalds odours major in first 30 minutes"
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Cons: "I was expecting this to be a flight by Japan Airlines but it turned out to be an American Airlines flight. I was expecting and wanted to experience a flight from another airline."
Pros: "The entertainment factor of people with huge bags being told they have to check them at the gate!"
Cons: "Middle seats!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment. Delayed"
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All. Disappointed to see Etihad airlines declining so rapidly. What used to be my preferred airlines, not anymore and definitely can predict the downfall."
Pros: "i loved everything but there should be more variety of food and snacks"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Pilot was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional (as usual), everything ran smoothly and on time."
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to board from the front of the plane backward. I know this is not an AA thing, but a way to make customers paying more feel more special by having the privilege of sitting on the plane longer...but it's really silly."
Cons: "Had a middle seat and didn't have the option to pick another seat without paying over 250 USD"
Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "The check in process with the kiosks. It was very easy."
Cons: "They ran out of sandwiches that we had to pay for. We didn't have to do that on the Aer Lingus flight, which was for the same amount of time. In the other flight we had choice in entetainment."
Pros: "The entertainment system was good. It took mind mind off the 4 delays that occurred with the flight."
Cons: "4 delays that occurred with the flight. 45 minutes to board. 30 min to leave the gate. 30 min to takeoff and 30 min to get to the gate when we landed."
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Pros: "This airline is evil."
Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient service."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Very small niggle but it could be very frustrating for people. I watched the Hobbit trilogy on the flight. The films appear in the menu alphabetically. Viewing them this way leads to a 1,3,2 order.... There is no indication (that I saw) for the order they should be viewed."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed overnight in Las Vegas, which was hassle but unavoidable due to weather and pilot flight hours restrictions. But the ground crew and American Airlines worked very hard to compensate all the passengers: gave us each a voucher for hotel, 2 meals, round trip shuttle ride for hotel and airport. Good work to make up for a bad situation."
Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."
Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."
Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "AA has been good to me--- Gold card a big help."
Cons: "The LAX concourse could at least 2 more coffee shops in addition to Starbucks.The wait was 40 minutes at Starbucks to get a cup of coffee!!! Get on the ball LAX!! We need our caffine in the morning."
Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "Once again my flight was delayed, this time 50 minutes!! . Last time i had to stop in Vegas I got stuck there overnigh because my flight had been delayed and to mKe things worse they also managed to Miss my flights connection in Miami after they had booked me a new flight.. With a window seat that had no window. I old the flight attendant that I needed help stowing my backpack in the overhead bin, not because it was that heavy or big, but because the previous flight had been 5 hrs long and after being stuck in the middle seat my back was killing me and lifting my bag over my head would have triggered a muscle spasm. I have a back condition and they refused to help me. She would not even hear me out and insisted on me to check my bag, which I refused to because my laptop and tablet were in there without propper padding to protect them. The same flight attendant had already yelled at a passanger and was making a scene that made several other passengers uncomfortable. i understand the flight was full and they were delayed enough, but the airline clients should not have to pay for the airline's mistakes."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable. The seats were very roomy. Boarding process was seamless. Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I had asked for a vegetarian meal when I booked the tickets - this request didn't come through on my booking. I asked again at check-in, they informed me I should have called 24 hours before and organised it. Luckily the flight had vegetarian meal options onboard so I did not starve. The movie selection was not the best. The entertainment unit itself was really good however."
Cons: "For the second time I traveled with Air Canada there was a 4 hour delay in Toronto. I will not be traveling with Air Canada ever again"
Cons: "Total commotion at gate. Two flights jammed into one small gate area. Rep was surly and embarrased many who were confused in the commotion and ynclear communication from the boarding agent. Tv didnt work for 4 hrs."
Pros: "The flight was underbooked, so there was extra seat space. Our delay was cut from 90 min to just 30 min"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to fog in San Francisco"
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Plane was nice Crew was great"
Pros: "Good leg room. Staff friendly and helpful. Really great flight."
Pros: "Entertainment excellent for a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On tiime"
Cons: "Has to wait an hour and a half at the gate to park in sanfransico"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with good entertainment system"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Everything I'll do the same next trip!!"
Cons: "No complaints!!"
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Pros: "The gate agent was extremely helpful and was able to accommodate me standby on this flight vs a later flight."
Pros: "I was able to change my seat from a middle to a window. I also had an open seat next to me so I was not squeezed in. The person at the desk in Toronto was very pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Entertainment and staff were good as expecte"
Cons: "over 3 hours delayed. no compensation for drinks/food no communications re: options and timing. I would have rather forfeited my seat on yesterday's flight (which didn't leave until after 10pm - scheduled for 7) and taken the first flight out of YVR today. Super frustrating - Have greater expectations from Air canada."
Pros: "Flight attendants were rude had to check my carry on since there was no room overhead cabin. This happens frequently with Air Canada"
Pros: "The crew on board were good."
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in online or through the kiosk to my flight and then had to wait in a 2 hour line to check in at the counter. After I get to the counter the ground staff grumbles and says I'm just going to make it to my flight!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times without any explanation or update from Air Canada at all. Everyone was at the gate ready to board at 6:50. The screen didn't indicate that it was going to be delayed. There was no one from the crew or AC at all at the gate until 8:30. No announcement, whatsoever. Then when we finally arrived at SFO, the plane was circling above SFO in a storm for another one hour and fifteen minutes..."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The flight was outrageously hot the entire time. There were no A/C vents above the seats, probably because the dated plane may have been built before temperature control. It was honestly almost unbearable."
Pros: "Flight crew were relatively friendly."
Cons: "On my outgoing flight, the audio jack was broken at my original seat, so they offered for me to move to the only available seat. Unfortunately, that TV broke after about an hour. I noticed that there were several TVs around me that also were having issues. On a long flight- 5+ plus hours, a TV with movies can be extremely helpful! If the technology had been kept functional, it would have been a much more tolerable flight."
Pros: "Super nice crew!"
Cons: "Inaudible boarding"
Pros: "Not much other than smiling faces of air hostesses"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage on an international flight. Besides making advance booking, was unable to secure an Aisle or a Window seat."
Cons: "The staff is always hit or miss"
Pros: "This plane had entertainment on each seat and seats were more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "The plane was full and was running out of over head storage for people sitting toward the back and people already seated were being very rude about us slightly moving their bags to try to fit in ours. Some angry Spaniards were litterslly shouting at us for us moving their luggage a few inches at best! No help from the plane crew on this matter. They should really arrange boarding from both ends."
Pros: "Cabin crew were really nice."
Cons: "The media selection was minimal."
Pros: "Was not delayed"
Cons: "On the way back from Quebec City to Montreal we were asked to check our carry-ons as luggage, because "there is no room' on the plane. It was an empty flight. ALL overhead compartments were empty. Both flights - Quebec to Montreal and Montreal San Francisco were late. As the result, we have to spend 1.5 hours in the baggage claim area, because "there are no baggage agents in SFO available". THAT WAS THE WHOLE REASON WE ONLY HAD CARRY-ONS! By far, one of the worst flight experience in the last 10 year."
Pros: "Size of plane allowing for aisle seating."
Cons: "Delay with boarding for about hour without a good explanation. All monitors in airport shows plane on time when it actually was not. Boarding process also took a bit of time perhaps due to many elderly on the flight. Seating was also confusing as the middle seats did not correspond with aisle seating. This caused delays as passengers had to figure out where they were sitting. Checked in luggage at gate since flight was full and we were asked to volunteer to check-in luggage. At baggage claim, bag delay to retrieve luggage after already hour delay in departure. Bags was not labeled or categorized correctly causing an extra half hour delay to claim bags."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "Flight left two hours late. They split my wife and I up despite having our tickets for two months and checking in well before the flight and then lost our luggage and delivered it a full day later than they told us."
Cons: "The fight had intercom problems and that delayed us for 5+ hours with no decision as to the resolution. We finally got home at 4 AM ...."
Pros: "Delay of 1-2 hours (first plane was at the wrong gate, and then technical issues) Montreal customs was very confusing, probably contributing to the overall crankiness of everyone on the flight. Purchased a beer, which was warm and disappointing, even though I knew it was a tasty beer normally."
Pros: "The pilot set an expectation of an early arrival (30 min) that was not met."
Pros: "The flight number was changed, but the new flight got in 45 mins earlier which is always a good thing. Every seat had a screen which kept me entertained."
Cons: "Flights delayed both there and back, with no advance warning and no reason given. Online & airport signage said flight "on time" the whole time. Asked Air Canada Customer Service desk in Toronto to change signage to accurate time, they were SUPER snooty and treated me like an idiot. Signage did not change, my husband came to airport "on time" to pick me up and then had to sit there 1-1/2 hours. They are inconsiderate jerks."
Pros: "Was really tired as just arrived from Tokyo, but it went well. Folks nice."
Cons: "Airport signage and boarding was a bit confusing, as our announcements overlapped with the gate next door and couldn't tell difference easily."
Pros: "The fact that the plane landed safely"
Cons: "The service was horrible. They kept changing boarding gates on us. Luggage didn't arrive. A little delay. The service was poor as well"
Pros: "Great airline. Highly recommend them"
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
Pros: "The crew members tried their best in the unfortunate circumstance and the choices of movies was okay but it was better than nothing."
Cons: "I chose to fly directly to save time, and I spent the extra $100 for choosing this option over flights with a layover. I ended up waiting an additional 2 and a half hours before the flight took off -- in this time I also requested for a blanket since the air craft got cold. There was an extra charge for this as well. It is ridiculous considering, the purpose of my flight choice was to ensure that I saved time and in return I paid for the convenience, ironically it didn't work out that way. There was no form of compensation."
Pros: "Bags were checked all the way through, Canada to US and I didn't have to recheck them before connection into US."
Cons: "That they make you take your headphones off during takeoff and landing - ear buds only makes no sense."
Pros: "The trip from Toronto to San Francisco was better than the San Francisco trip because the return trip was on a Boeing 747 and a much more comfortable than the Airbus."
Cons: "The Airbus red eye going to Toronto was too cramped so it was not very relaxing. The planes are not clean. I'm glad I have wipes to clean the table tray because it was messy."
Pros: "Very soft seat and it have a thing kind of a iPad is very fun."
Cons: "It has nothing to eat when you are getting a fly is 1:00 to 2:00"
Pros: "the boarding process was smooth and organized."
Cons: "food should be part of the ticket and not extra payment. In a 5 to 6 hours of flight there should be at least some snacks offered."
Cons: "Food offerings were really mediocre and poor quality. For the staff and crew, I did not get the feeling that they had a service oriented mentality in their communications and attitude. It felt more like I was being processed- just one of any number of faceless people that needed to be dealt with as quickly as possible."
Pros: "Nothing.."
Cons: "Air cananda made me go crazy... They didn't prepared anything after I missed my flight. Because of immigration. They just said to me that was not their fault. But you know, I arrived at air port 5am. My flight time was 8am. I asked aircanada clerks to get into gate quckily. But they had me wait for a long time, and they said everybody was waiting, so that's not problem. But when I got into gate at 8:45, My plane already had gone. And I went to Air canada service center, I had argued for 5hours... because they just prepared my flight from Toronto to San Francisco. They didn't care about Connected air plane was Asiana. So I Had to call three company.. Asiana, Kayak, air canada... that was horrible time. Air canada didn't want to have responsibility about missing air plane. That's why I had to contact with Asiana...the first time Asiana didn't want to prepare air plane for free... I had to try to explain my situation and problem three times.... Finally I got a ticket for free from Asiana. I could departure at 9pm from Toronto. I stayed in Pearson air port for 15hours... because of Air canada's GOOD!! customer service v^^v..... I will never use Air canada !!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "That i showed up in maple time and the plane was oversold, then they put me on another flight which made my pick up at another airport costly!"
Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."
Pros: "It was a short flight so even if it was bad I wouldn't have minded that much but the plane was clean and smelled nice. Flight was very uneventful which is good."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "air canada moved the flight time up an hour earlier, so I missed the check-in cut-off. I never received an email from kayak or air canada that my itinerary had changed. On top of this, air canada wanted $150 to book me on a later flight (which, after protest, was rescinded). My guess is that air canada is vastly overbooking some flights, and this is a technique to shake some passengers loose and force them onto less-full flights. Shady."
Pros: "It was short!"
Cons: "Being in the midle seat"
