Pros: "Not satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Cons: "Poor Flight and worst food and bad staff from Doha Airport. Worst food in qatar flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "The seats could be more wide."

Cons: "Check-in service at Ahmedabad was very bad. The staff there seems to be very disorganized. Took an hour to check-in may be 10-12 passengers ahead of me."

Pros: "The comfort of the plane"
Cons: "The staff at Atlanta International Airport were terrible; not customer friendly. The supervisor at the check-in counter needs to be replaced. I am not one of your frequent flyers but travel internationally. However, based on his attitude I will think twice to select Qatar as my choice of airlines."

Cons: "Delay at landing"

Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."

Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"

Cons: "One restroom was out of service"

Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."

Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"

Cons: "THere was no wifi"

Pros: "Lost bag"

Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"

Pros: "Boarding and ticket counter crew were good."
Cons: "Business class passengers were not given a priority.The food was mediocre and didn't compare to other airlines. The crew was impolite and attend to passenger's needs. Local American airlines pay more attention to passengers even in economy class. Will not recommend traveling from Mumbai to Doha via Qatar airways."

Pros: "On time departures Good entertainment options Could charge my electronics"
Cons: "Food was ok Boarding was somewhat disorganized"

Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"

Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."

Pros: "The classy servieces in the plane..the plane it selfe is excellant"

Pros: "The food and service was great"
Cons: "The bathroom could be cleaner :)"

Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."

Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"

Cons: "Food choices could be better."

Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"

Pros: "No comense"

Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"

Cons: "Great flight!"

Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was polite and attentive the entertainment was good. Every thing else was pretty disappointing. The bathrooms onboard were pretty Dirty. The flight was delayed and no overhead baggage space. For such a long and delayed flight they gave me one pack of cheez it. Terrible value for money :("
Cons: "More snacks considering the delay. Maybe even a some sort of credit for my time wasted."

Pros: "Arrived almost an hour early, friendly and courteous service, smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "More efficient boarding process. Only 2 lines one short line for priority and a very long line for general boarding that wasn't organized by zones, etc."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was not comfortable and shaking as if it is about to explode"

Pros: "It was good organized. Staff were polite friendly and helpful. There was no craziness from the passengers. I loved the flight attendants were normal people. I saw older and plus size attendants. Given this diversity I am more likely to fly delta."
Cons: "Flight delayed 30 minutes on tarmac but holiday week so it could have been much worse. Slow deboarding process and air conditioning was not running and with the full flight it wS uncomfortable."

Pros: "Television"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"

Cons: "The schedule was not good and I was needed to take later flight than I ordered."

Cons: ". The flight was overbooked and I had to wait for last minute to find out weather I will be on board of the flight .My bags were left behind in Amsterdam which were delivered later than they were supposed to."

Pros: "Some of the cabin attendants were friendly and helpful. Others not so much."
Cons: "Even in "world business class" the pods are very small and cramped and there is no room to put a carry on bag even something as small as a headphone box. Also the business class bathroom was very small, very disgustingly dirty when we boarded (someone tried to clean it a bit) and dirty and small throughout the flight. The bathroom does not have ventilation and the toilet basically does not have any liquid for flushing!"

Cons: "-"

Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"

Pros: "Snack"
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"

Cons: "Rude stewardesses; I was traveling with 3 children onanovernight flight. I just wanted the simplest things- blankets and headphones for them. I cannot believe that an overnight flight wouldn’t be stocked with pillows and blankets. We froze al the way across the Pacific."

Pros: "Thanks for being so kind to me and my musical instrument. It’s how I make a living and your staff allowed me to keep it safe! I’m a huge fan!!"
Cons: "I didn’t like this question!! You guys are great!!"

Pros: "Landed Early at LAX"
Cons: "Having to go through 1 terminal to get bussed to another terminal & gate was at the opposite end. Having to ask the person next to me not to eat nuts Bc I was allergic. I disclosed this on my registration for my flight."

Pros: "It was short and fast."

Pros: "Buen entretenimiento."

Pros: "Got upgraded to comfort class it was comfy"

Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Turbulence was intense and scary. We didn’t get our drink service because it was unsafe for the flight attendant to walk the isle. The leg room seemed a lot smaller than expected."

Pros: "Great trips notifications"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."

Pros: "We didn’t order food and there was no online entertainment"

Pros: "The flight attendant in Delta Comfort/Main Cabin was very nice and made for an excellent trip. Smooth ride and on time. I like that!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the movie selection on my personal entertainment screen. The movies were New releases and there was a good selection. Staff was also very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cookies on the return flight with Delta were nice, but the mini meal on the flight down with Aeromexico was even better!"

Pros: "The entertainment is good; several new movies"
Cons: "The dirty seats, the awful food and wine"

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit backwards. They board by zones with the front of the plane going first, so if you're in the back you get stuck in the aisles waiting for these people to sit down. They should board the back of the plane first."

Pros: "Same as previous"
Cons: "Same as previous"

Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"

Pros: "I was automatically upgraded."
Cons: "I was upgraded, which I appreciate very much. However, I was upgraded to a window seat. With my bladder situation it was comfortable. This is why I only book aile seats."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and pleasant. Cabin crew was very kind."
Cons: "I flew on a 15 year old plane. After my excellent flight to LAS with AA, flying DL was a notable downgrade. No drinks and nuts/pretzels."

Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."

Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"

Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"

Pros: "We flew first class for the first time. Now I don't think I'll fly any other way!"

Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"

Pros: "Reminds of when air travel was a special event. The Salt Lake based crew was awesome. Cost to upgrade to 1st definitely worth it."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "So so food. Terrible delay leaving Beijing. Gatemoccupied in SEA."

Pros: "The most amazing service, good food and great steward"

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "Absolutely amazing service"
Cons: "No any healthy snacks like nuts or just dried veggies or biscuits with less sugar."

Cons: "Security check at the Frankfurt airport is illogical and terrible! It took 90 minutes to complete the security and go from one terminal to another!"

Pros: "Crew was professional, kind and capable. Everyone went smoothly and on time. The downstairs bathrooms were great: roomy, clean and FIVE of them so no waiting!"
Cons: "The food was just okay. A better choice of wine and more selection of spirits would be nice."

Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Connect flight time was cutting it short- sane scenario."

Cons: "I could not purchase transport for an extra bag on the website. I did purchase it at Larnaca Airport. There, I checked in, dropped off the bag, had to go to another counter to pay (long delay in them being able to generate a receipt). Then I had to run the receipt back to the ticket counter."

Cons: "Late, missed connection"

Cons: "40 minute delay in departure due to late arrival of incoming aircraft."

Pros: "Worst ever"
Cons: "Poor service"

Pros: "Loved the German touches like real silverware, good wine, and German movies with English subtitles! Also appreciated lots of liquids and never had to go searching for hydration."
Cons: "Everything was great until we landed and I stood up in the aisle. A woman two rows behind opened the overhead compartment and pulled her huge backpack out, landing it right on my head! OUCH! I scolded her and she apologized, but, REALLY? Perhaps the crew needs to reiterate how dangerous this is to do! My head still hurts a little on top, almost a week later. Ugh."

Pros: "Crew were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Se headline"

Pros: "Boarding was a bit hectic loading an A380 and that was probably the worst part. Service was very pleasant but a little scarce. Premium Economy was better than most. Food was not that good and ranked with the boarding."
Cons: "Food and boarding"

Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."

Pros: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Very well organized."
Cons: "Not Lufthansa but United."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "Clean, modern place. Professional staff."

Pros: "Needed to cancel trip - had insurance I thought was good"
Cons: "it sucked !!!!!! someone had to die before they covered cancellation"

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."

Pros: "747-8"

Pros: "The wellcoming on board."
Cons: "The Long bus drive from the Airport building to the aitcraft."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible experience. Stranded for 3 hours inside stationary flight, 4 hours in a long queue. Very very poorly managed. I slept on a chair in the cold weather. Atleast make arrangements for bad situations, apparently I was booked on another flight but they made me stand in a 4 hour long queue to find that out. Kiosk outside showed I was put in no flight. One of my worst experiences and rest assured if I’m given a chance I will never choose Lufthansa again."

Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "They ran out of food- I didn’t have dinner on that flight. We were almost 2 hours late to Dubai. I was irritated to say the least."

Pros: "Nothing, really; the seats—even those in business class–have a no-frills design, with hardly any recline to speak of. Okay for flights as short in duration as this one (about 50 minutes)."
Cons: "The delay in boarding, much of which was due to the fact that the plane wasn't ready for boarding in time because the tech service was delayed. It would seem this was at least in part something within the sphere of factors the airline is able to control. Also, there was an irritating, rumbling noise, sounding almost like an old propeller engine, during much of the plane's ascent. You'd think there would be some maintenance necessary."

Pros: "Exenent.."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Nothing special just a typical early morning domesric flight no entertainment on board food was a tad bit better going back to the states then coming to europe and at least we boarded at the gate not like when we flew Frankfurt athens where we took a bus like we were in the 80s like cattle that was embarrassing at this time and age"
Cons: "Just happy to have made it safely but nothing special to boast"

Pros: "Was no flight"

Pros: "Excellent service. Everybody from the crew up had smile. Very good atmosphere. I would definitely fly with up guts again"
Cons: "I'm 6'2 230 seat was tight for me but that is it"

Cons: "This was a very tight confection. When selling international connections the layover needs to allow enough time to exit the plane, cross a huge airport and go through passport control. Boarding starts early and this connection was barely enough time."

Cons: "It wasn't Lufthansa"

Pros: "Clean plane tho old 747. Great crew."
Cons: "Of course really tiny seats. Meals can only ever be mediocre but better than American carriers."

Pros: "I am 6'1 so I wish could have afforded 1st class, but I am grateful to the desk staff who made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Great movies. Good food."
Cons: "The tightness of the seats!"

Pros: "Having own TV moniter and many options for entertainment. The meals were good and staff friendly."
Cons: "Every seat was taken and the flight was cramped. But the plane was configured so you could get up and walk around every few hours."

Pros: "Friendliness of crew, punctuality of flight; complimentary plum cake; good selection of drinks. We were able to check in and choose seats online."

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Munich airport ground crew did an exceptional job to transport pasangers From delayed flight from Lviv."
Cons: "Every thing was very proffasionally managed with very good customer service and smiles."

Pros: "Staff seemed super friendly and happy to help. Also got plenty of drinks!"

Pros: "Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good."

Pros: "entertainment and food was good"
Cons: "My wifes luggage was lost, no followup at all from Lufthansa (main) or in Seville which was our destination. We had to call to find out any information. Once the bag was found and delivered to Seville, Lufthansa personnel again did not tell us nor would they deliver the bag to our hotel as the driver had already left. We then had to wait another day to have the bag delivered to Granada. Terrible customer service, the bag was missing for four days causing us to spend time shopping for clothes rather than experiencing the city."

Pros: "short hop--good"

Pros: "We liked everything about the flights: the crew was friendly and helpful, the food service for economy class was excellent, and the flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "...being bumped from row 26 to row 47; but we still retained seats H and K."

Cons: "They scheduled our connection flight from Munich to Dulles Wash DC to close to our arrival. For example, the flight from Athens landed just four minutes before boarding started for our connection and we had to go through German customs. Luckily for us there were many passengers on the Athens flight that were also going on Dulles flight the airline waited for the passengers. This scheduling issue caused unnecessary stress that could have been avoided."

Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats and comfort was heavily compromised in economy class"

Cons: "No any form of inflight entertainment Uncomfortable chairs Food was below average I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water"

Cons: "Missed this flight"

Cons: "There was a 4.5 hr delay due to "technical difficulties". We had to switch planes. This caused me to miss my flight to Tucson out of LAX. When I asked them to help rebook my flight that Lufthansa caused ne to miss, i was told there is nothing they can do. Seeing as how that last flight was not booked through Lufthansa. This is absolutely ridiculous! There were no Lufthansa flights into Tucson so I had no choice but to go with another carrier! So after a long grueling 4.5 hr delay and 11+hr flight now I have to stay in a hotel because my flight out via Southwest was the last one out for the day and The only nonstop flight departs at 12:35 tomorrow. Thank goodness Southwest booked me on another flight at no charge! They take care of their customers. It was not their fault I missed the flight. It was dur to the "techincal difficulties" with Lufthansa. And every hotel within a 8 mile radius has been sold out. And at one point I booked online only to find out upon my arrival, after paying for taxi and havig him leave, thAt this hotel is sold out and should not have allowed me to book online. So after landing at 7:15 pm at LAX I am just now in bed at a hotel after searching and paying for cabs etc. And on my dime! Absolutely ridiculous !!"

Pros: "Professional flight crew. Good leg room. Smooth flight."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Very accommodating crew as we were traveling with my elderly grandmother."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."

Pros: "Everything operated according to schedule."

Cons: "Stewardesses were grouchy except the one Oriental stewardess. Boarding was late. Reclining seats need to be eliminated!!! I paid $100 extra for additional 6 inches of legroom which was lost when person in front of me reclined. Kona Airport is nasty."

Pros: "I liked that they were on time (mostly) I liked the movie choices.. Crew were very nice....."
Cons: "Wasting money on their part for the silly little bags of pretzels......hardly worth the effort......could be a little more generous on a five hour flight.........."

Pros: "Landed in one piece despite weather."
Cons: "WiFi was down"

Cons: "Crew was not attentive. Temperature was cold."

Pros: "Crew good seat was better than than the last. Food really good"
Cons: "Shorter fly time"

Pros: "The crew was amazing but I was on a United flight since American was late leaving Athens. AA booked me on a later flight from Chicago to San Francisco on United. They issued separate inside seats for my wife and I. United showed me their kindness by putting us together in economy Plus."
Cons: "I don't blame American for being late but putting me on a United flight and splitting up my wife and I seperate seats was a little under the bar."

Cons: "Food quality"

Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."

Cons: "Getting the crew to fly on original date of 12/31 instead of having to scramble to find hotel on other side of BI in Hilo on New Years eve. 24 hour delay and then giving the last row of seats with a screaming baby that another group kept walking back to our section to "grace" us with such melodies!"

Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"

Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."

Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "No customs forms on board. Big inconveny"

Pros: "Service, food and the cleanliness. Also the help we got in transfer, from one flight to the other."
Cons: "Nothing really much!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The Flight crew was courteous and took care of us despite a series of extremely unfortunate circumstances."
Cons: "Due to a computer malfunction we were stuck on the tarmac for some time, when it was decided to find a new gate to return to. /The tech crew eventually gave the all clear and upon returning to the tarmac, the same computer malfunction occurred, and again we had to return to the gate. This was all totaled 2.5 hours on the Tarmac. Finally, some 5 hours late we departed Miami in a different plane. Upon arrival in Phoenix, the captain wearily announced that there was no ground crew awaiting us, so we had to wait some time on the tarmac there to disembark. Never before had I heard a airline captain encourage the passengers to write a letter of complaint to his employer."

Pros: "Appreciated the friendliness of the flight crew, compared to two other international flights I have taken in the past year and a half on other airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seating, as I suppose is the norm on most airlines nowadays. But feels torturous on a long flight. Also, had to pay extra to choose seats. I think that’s outrageous."

Pros: "Ample leg room, and a comfy, wider seat than British Airways."
Cons: "No food on nearly 6 hour flight. Attendant would purposely bash me with drink cart every time he passed to remind me my arm was in HIS aisle. No entertainment at all on flight. At least the seats are bigger than BA."

Pros: "Great service and on time flight. Got a good comfortable seat with nice leg room."

Pros: "The crew was great, the entertainment options were plentiful (if you bring your own earphones) and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I'm only 5'7" and normal build, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow with no room to partially straighten even my short legs. The life vest box under each seat also doesn't leave much room for the personal item you're supposed to stow under there."

Cons: "Ticket was never issued."

Cons: "Avianca cancelled our original flight forcing us to leave a day early. Next they cancelled our return flight forcing us to come home a day early. Finally, when we arrived, they had oversold the flight and were short one seat and almost didn't get on at all. Will NEVER fly Avianca again."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and our party was stuck for 2 days without a returning flight."

Pros: "American Airlines was fantastic. The plane was new and nice. The crew was wonderful. No problems."
Cons: "Never will I book through a third party again. I was not able to choose my seats or upgrade my seats until I got to the airport. Also, I was not able to get a boarding pass for my 2nd flight until I got to the 2nd airport which caused a minor problem at immigration. DO NOT BOOK WITH WEBJET!!"

Pros: "Boarded in a timely manner."

Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"

Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The seats are terrible. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. Awful all around."

Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to be given a boxed Snack on our overnight flight from Kona to Dallas."
Cons: "The ride was a little bumpy but not too bad. Can’t think of much we didn’t like."

Pros: "In spite of adverse situations the counter staff was extremely helpful"

Cons: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""

Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."

Cons: "Our audio did not work for movies. The food was super cheap"

Cons: "I really can't believe that this flight didn't have in headrest screens or USB power to keep you devices charged. This was a 6 hour flight across the US. If they don't provide entertainment, at least let the people charge their devices."

Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"

Pros: "We're hustling and hard working."
Cons: "Having to fly from Hawaii back to lax to fly to Australia."

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "delays"

Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."

Pros: "Quick flight, no pressure issues in flight."
Cons: "There were two delays."

Cons: "I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it."

Pros: "Plane was good. Not jammed too tightly to be comfortably."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Baggage took a ridiculous amount of time to come down."

Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."

Cons: "Frankfurt was rebooked by AA to PHL connecting to LGA. LGA leg was cancelled. They wanted us to take a flight to LGA the next day. We got ticketed to DCA connecting to LGA same day. Finally arrived home after 18 hours of travel. NOT HAPPY. We don't blame AA for weather cancellation but it was not an easy trip home."

Cons: "A little bumpy"

Pros: "I was traveling with an infant and the staff was so helpful. I will definitely fly AA again."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "entertainment did not work"

Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."

Pros: "Nothing. My fight from San Juan to Miami on Friday Oct. 7 was cancelled because of hurricane Matthews, since I didnot buy a roundtrip with AA they did not reimburse or offer me a credit for my returning flight. I contacted AA in two ocassions and both times their personnel were impersonal and even rude to me with the whole situation. I ended up losing $250 because of choosing American Airlines. I will do my best to avoid traveling with American ever again, and I will spread the word, as well. I felt robbed, so unfair."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew did the best with what they had"
Cons: "Four hour delays with little to no updates along the way are inexcusable"

Cons: "No luggage space"

Pros: "Customer service won't answer the phone"
Cons: "Customer service could answer the phone"

Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was on time. This was a newer plane"
Cons: "it was great"

Pros: "There's nothing to like about Air Canada's Rouge service!"
Cons: "Seat comfort."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"

Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."
Cons: "The main meal was pretty dreadful. Grilled chicken with what I think was mashed potato, but it was difficult to be sure. Watery and tasteless. Accompanied bizarrely by a tomato sauce (which did taste of something). Hard to identify the ethnicity."

Pros: "Crew was polite within their constraints for food, drinks and entertainment system."
Cons: "- Long delay (3+ hrs) due to technical problems - Food was mediocre at best - Entertainment system was not working for a 10-hour flight - No personal screens, you had to use your phone or tablet, downloading the app did not work and the charging outlet for my phone was not working."

Pros: "The 1.5 hours they turned the lights down and stopped the crew from going constantly up and down the aisle."
Cons: "We were traveling from 11 pm local time to 10:30 am local. However they kept all the lights on for nearly the whole flight. In addition, the crew was constantly going up and down the aisle with food or beverages. It made sleep impossible. To make matters worse I’m allergic to dairy and I tried to prebook an appropriate meal but couldn’t and everything had cheese."

Cons: "You cancelled our flight & then made the rebooking process a hastle & did not provide all available options."

Pros: "The crew was excellent despite the fact that we were delayed 3 hours due to a broken fuel pump. They were also nice enough to give us a free dinner due to the inconvenience, and let us come off the plane to stretch our legs while we waited. Overall, excellent job handling something that was out of their control."
Cons: "Was not very pleased with the fuel pump being broken. Not sure how far ahead they knew it was broken, but if they were able to tell me my flight would be delayed 3 hours earlier, I could have extended my vacation. Additionally, the selections on the Air Canada entertainment app are far worse than the Westjet ones."

Pros: "Flight and crew were good . Not even peanuts or pretzels served , sat on plane for 5.5 hours ."
Cons: "Air Canada customer service on ground is horrible .my original flight I booked for my son’s wedding was cancelled and I was told they will put me on another flight a day later or I could get a refund.... not professional , not caring ."

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "I wish the entertainment system had had closed captioning, and/or that the inflight wifi had worked."

Pros: "The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?"
Cons: "The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant."

Pros: "Was on time both take off and reached"
Cons: "They served frozen food."

Cons: "Food was too expensive in related to its quality."

Pros: "Service of staff"
Cons: "Lost my baggage and all of my flights where late causing me to miss one of my connections"

Pros: "They allowed us to make an earlier connection without any fee. That was very kind. Thank you."

Cons: "Bad service"

Pros: "Flight crew was vey nice and flight was on time."

Cons: "Seats just aren't comfortable and they ran out of iPads so no entertainment. This was on an 8.5hr flight from Berlin."

Pros: "Delays"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "They were on time and boarding went quickly"
Cons: "Even though I checked in online they didn't have 2 seats next to each other for us despite us having booked together under a single booking as couple etc. the food was small portions and mediocre / blunt taste."

Pros: "I was able to be on standby for an earlier flight to Newark."

Cons: "There was a build-up of delays for domestic flights, namely from Toronto to Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary (the ones I heard). I was on the Toronto to Calgary flight, which was supposedly delayed from 16:45 till 18:55 EST, but the actual boarding time was closer to 19:45 EST. Once all the passengers were boarded, the crew informed us that the pilot was missing. Another 20 minutes went by before he was located, at which point we were informed that the first mate was missing as well. By the time the pilot and first mate were both on the aircraft, it took another 30 minutes for them to get the aircraft ready. My flight from Toronto to Calgary was supposed to arrive at 19:40 MDT, the actual arrival time was 23:00 MDT. As a passenger, I am annoyed to say the least."

Pros: "All passengers and crew arrived alive. Flight attendants were very helpful and nice. Price for this trip is much cheaper than comparable flights with other airlines."
Cons: "Extra charge for any checked bags at all is awful. Couldn't get a meal on flight, even for a price. Just miserable tiny snacks. Flight left late and arrived late, apparently because schedulers didn't bother to make allowances for deicing at previous stop. In-flight Air Canada app didn't work either on my ipAD OR MY LAPTOP."

Pros: "Flight crews were great."
Cons: "Ground crews and Air Canada's booking system caused no end of trouble. Weather started the problem but human error meant an incredibly stressful rebooking, requiring three agents at ticketing plus the IT help desk just to figure out what the agent I had reached over the phone had done. In Quebec City not nearly enough agents to check bags; huge lines, people being shunted to the front so they wouldn't miss their flights."

Cons: "We were delayed taking off. We boarded on time but then had to sit and wait in the plane for almost an hour before taking off. We had a connecting flight in Toronto and thankfully made it but some people missed their flights."

Pros: "Entertainment, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "lack of seat/leg room...."

Pros: "we sat on the airplane for over 3 hrs , waiting for someone to clean the waste water from the plane.! it was very alarming the lack of service , never seen anything like that before !"

Pros: "Spacious flight Cozy environment Comfortable sitting"

Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "NO LEG ROOM!!!"

Pros: "The flight was pretty good. The flight attendants were very nice. The seats are pretty roomy and Im about 6'3. The seat backs have a nice screen and a usb port as well as a standard electrical plug."
Cons: "Checking in was terrible there and back. On the way to vancouver we showed up 2 hours early but the computers went out about 20 minutes after we arrived and stayed off till after our flight. No apologies, no responsibilities taken. That day was part of our small vacation. We got put on standby for the next flight 7 hours later. My family layed around the terminal without 100% surety that we'd get the next flight. We did but they split us up. I switched seats with someone and we all sat in the very rear seat of the plane, which was hard on my long legs and just added to a terrible experience. Ruined a whole day of vacation. Coming back the check in was just rudeness. A stark difference from the flight itself."

Pros: "The onboard crew were excellent with dealing with the numerous irate flyers."
Cons: "Severe delays, little to no information about the whereabouts of the incoming flight, confused estimations and incomplete announcements. 3 hour late take off."

Pros: "Boeing 767 is a great aircraft in every way!"
Cons: "A shame to connect in Toronto!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent with helping everyone and answering peoples questions."
Cons: "I had a 2 year old with me and boarded early. The flight was already delayed and more delays after everyone was aboard due to cargo not being on. I found this shocking for a red eye flight. This caused me to miss my connecting flight and having to wait 4 hours for the next flight with a 2 year old. our TV's seemed to skip even after they rebooted them so I wasn't even able to enjoy a movie or play any games."

Pros: "Flight crew including cockpit were kind, courteous, professional, appreciative and much appreciated."
Cons: "Ground crew - grouchy, uncooperative and down right unprofessional!!"

Cons: "AC373 on 07/23/16 - need I say more? Having an airline background and now the HR mgr of a very large hotel chain, I understand many things that are out of a companies control, ie: weather etc, but....never have I witnessed airline staff YELLING at passengers "it's not our fault and the agents need to leave so they don't go into overtime?" Yes, some passengers were difficult, but it's part of the industry. If you can't handle w/care and service - don't choose as a profession. Very unimpressed with AC's customer service, guest recovery - they made it seem like it was more of an inconvenience for them. Can't imagine "choosing" to fly AC again!"

Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The food options were very limited. On such a long flight, I would recommend stocking up more."

Pros: "Safe and efficient."
Cons: "Poor seat room. Food quality mediocre."

Cons: "Flight delayed, service with discrimination, pride, specially male crew, this is a really bad flight experience."

Pros: "aircraft was large and there was one nice stewardess that tried to help us figure out which way to go and if we would make our connection"
Cons: "it was delayed causing us to panic because we had a connecting flight and had a long walk from gates . There is no one to help you find your way or tell you which way to go also we had to go through several long lines even though we had already done security twice"

Pros: "Everyone was super polite"

Cons: "We sat at the back with no windows and there was no entertainment except for an app available through wifi on our phones."

Cons: "100 US dollars for preffered seating and get less room then normal seat because of emergency exit door is unacceptable"

Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment, bad service"

Pros: "Staff fun and competent."
Cons: "Staff were overworked, and when did they stop offering a meal on long haul flights? Instead an ala carte system that TOOK FOREVER. Any crummy entertainment. Very disappointing..."

Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"

Pros: "The crew members were very nice, hospitable and all of them have had professional approach to passengers, me included. I think they were doing their best"
