Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant and it was nice to get a drink of water, a cookie and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant and it was nice to get a drink of water, a cookie and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat I had booked and was confirrmed was not available, double booked."
Cons: "I was turned away at the gate and was unable to board the plane. It was an awful experience!"
Pros: "I liked sleeping for 10 hrs & arriving in AKL ready to roll!"
Cons: "I paid for seats, but there is no record of my purchase at NZ air."
Pros: "Nicest crew on the planet. Restrooms stayed clean despite 12 hour flight"
Cons: "The landing was poor , almost to a point of dangerous . Too much turbulence during flight. And the drops should have been avoidable"
Pros: "slightly more roomy than most carriers"
Cons: "since it was a Friday during Lent, there could have been non-meat options on the meals. One lunch and one supper offered only chicken and beef both times."
Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."
Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"
Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"

Ok flight, except for the lack of a clean airplane. The obvious quick turn around in schedule means that Qantas hasn’t allowed enough time to clean the plane from previous flight. So food scraps and old packaging is nearly always found around the seat and seat pocket. Not to mention the walls and all fixtures.

No individual entertainment screens on this flight. Would have been nice to know beforehand.

Cons: "I got pulled aside and delayed my boarding because someone wanted to switch my seat. WHY do I have to be delayed for this? I felt it was very poor customer service. I. You can just print a list and ask at the aircraft's entrance."
Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."
Pros: "The crew for Qantas is normally pretty damn good. This trip was no exception."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue. The plane had sat on the ground for over 12 hours according to flightaware. They didn’t try to work on the mechanics issue till about an hour or two before boarding. This delay caused a lot of issues for so many passengers trying to make connecting flights."
Pros: "Crew was OK, slow to respond to requests"
Cons: "The whole check in process was a joke, had a line up of 15 people and one agent"
Cons: "They didn’t leave my food. They took it away."
Pros: "Lovely staff and great food"
Cons: "There was no in-seat entertainment and we weren’t advised of this in advance"
Cons: "The frittata and the spinach was not the best meal, but the rest seemed really good."
Pros: "Crew a was good - Seat was not so great. I tried to book my seat/boarding pass when you sent through the notice to do so in the morning but at that stage there was only 1 seat available to sit in?? Seamed a little odd to be completely booked out at that stage"
Cons: "Isle Seat"

Wider seats would be nice. Love the wine selection. Crew is superb. Need more movie / TV selections.

Pros: "On time, nice crew, clean aircraft."
Cons: "Check-in agt at bag drop was a sour puss. She could've been a bit nicer."
Pros: "Crew was so helpful"
Cons: "Food ...special ordered food didnt make it in any flight. And quality of food needs bit improvement"
Pros: "The people were great! And it was a smooth ride."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. I could not get comfortable and my tailbone just ached. I tried sitting on a pillow, but that did not help. And the cabin was too cold for me."
Pros: "super friendly crew making sure u had snacks and drinks ,smiling the whole time.!"
Cons: "maybe if i could hve plugged inmy own headphines but no big deal. thank you!"
Pros: "The crew had a good attitude for the flight."
Cons: "Felt like this being a 8 hour flight there would be some entertainment on the plane , just radio. Also there was no food options from what I saw available either."
Pros: "Coach seats reasonably comfortable. Coach bar service outstanding."
Cons: "Coach food quality, in-flight entertainment, and between meal snack service are average."
Pros: "We boarded and left on time, the service was good."
Cons: "The picture on the screen for the movie was very poor, although the selection of movies was really good."
Pros: "The crew were welcoming, friendly, and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane is old and had no screens, so there was no entertainment option."
Pros: "Pillow and blanket provided!"
Cons: "Flight attendants spoke very loudly during times when most passengers were sleeping, waking everyone around. A personal water bottle would have been nice."

On time departure with early arrivals. My last flight arrived 20 minutes ahead of schedule which was great due to my long commute home 3+ hours. The cabin crews on all 3 flights were great. See ya in 7 days Air Canada

We did not like it much. There were so many delays. From getting there to check in, to the delay on flights to get home. It felt so disorganized and it gave us a lot of anxiety and stress. We followed the instructions that were given to us but no one seemed to know what they were doing. We missed our first flight due to the poor management of the airline.

Left on time. Good flight. Good crew and decent plane.

The walking distance was long but transportation was available which was great

Everything about this flight was terrible. It was delayed several times, but Air Canada was short-staffed and made no announcements (I found out about the delays via text). Air Canada changed gates several times as well, eventually moving passengers to an isolated gate at the far edge of the airport where we had to walk across the tarmac up a staircase to the plane. But the worst part was the boarding process: when Air Canada suddenly announced we were boarding, they didn't use zones or even priority boarding. It was absolute bedlam, with one Air Canada employee screaming at the crowd jostling to get on the plane. Finally, when the plane landed at LGA just before midnight, there was no gate for us and we had to wait another half-hour for the gate. I would never fly Air Canada again.

After landing in Toronto, we had to wait a full 30 minutes before taxiing to our gate. That made our arrival quite late.

Very small aircraft and a tight fit for most people. Luggage was put on another flight :(

I like that they keep you informed about flight boarding, etc by email. I don't like the fact that on one of the flights I wasn't able to use my entertainment service because the cursor on the screen didn't work, and worse, the tray table was broken.

Entertainment center only had a USB port, seats very uncomfortable

During boarding, the crew told us there was new room left in the overhead bins, so carry-ons that didn't fit under the seat needed to be checked. Barely half the passengers had boarded at that point. I left my carry-on case outside the plane for checking. When I got on the plane, I saw there was still plenty of space in the overheads, so I went back and got my case. Another complaint, there was literally no entertainment of any sort on this plane. No screens for movies, no headphone jacks for music, nothing. I could understand if it was a an hour-long commuter flight, but it was 3+ hours.

Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "There wasn’t much for social distancing. Was kind of disappointed."
Pros: "United Airlines is putting customers and employees at risk. It is an insane and absurd as it is disgraceful. During boarding you will see painted arrows on the ground urging you to be "6 feet apart" from fellow travellers. You will then enter a the plane and be 6 inches apart as the plane will be FULL. Fly Delta where they block off middle seats and social distance. United CEO Scott Kirby does not care about customers or employees. The absurdity of the juxtaposition between the "6 feet" signs in the boarding area and the COMPLETE ABSENCE of distancing on board tells you everything you need to know about United."
Cons: "Practice social distancing on the plane. There's a pandemic. This is the NUMBER ONE thing you should be doing to assure safety of passengers and crew."
Pros: "Crew nice. Had the row to myself so room to stretch out and made me feel safer from others germs"
Cons: "The flight departed over 3 hours late. Rather than communicating a realistic departure time, the flight was delayed 6 times in 20-40 minute intervals."
Pros: "The crew were all very friendly and very helpful; one gentleman even took time to help me figure out how to get around the airport before we landed since I had a very short amount of time to make a connecting flight."
Cons: "Honestly, this was the best flight I've ever been on. I've never had the pleasure of having an entire flight crew be so friendly, and since the flight wasn't full, it was very comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and I was comfortable during the flight."
Cons: "Touch screen could be a bit better. Sometimes I had to press to hard that I feel can bother a passenger that is in the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Smaller plane was awesome. Flight service great. Checkin easy."
Cons: "We are okay with seat area but would ask that united freeze seat backs. The inconsiderate bumpkins in front of us put seat back and then leaned forward the whole flight. we could not even put our tray table all the way down. Coke spilled all over us in turbulence as liose tabke bounced significantly more than if set in place. Give people rude, freeze saet so cant recline or remove tray tables so we dont hurt ourselves due to rude people."
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and courteous"
Cons: "The carry on policy, the seats, the completelack of information on how to connect with wifi. The "sorry you might miss your connecting flight because we're running behind, but once you get off this plane nothing that happens to you is our problem even if we caused it to happen" attitude."
Pros: "Crew and comfort were excellent."
Cons: "First, united cancelled my flight to OkC, their reasoning was because of the weather, if that was the case then, why weren’t other flights cancelled? Then after waiting in line for an hour to see a customer representative for another flight, they said it was at gate C2, we go there then the gate was changed to E10. After already have walking from gate F, to E, back to F, then C and finally back to E, was a little ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for HOURS! Would havepreferred to change flights. I had just flown from Italy, stuck in Chicago for hours, get on the plane, would have to pay for any food? That’s not right. Won’t fly United again."
