Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."

Pros: "Overalll the flight was okay and the company crew is very helpful!"
Cons: "The only problem is if you need to go in the first flight at 6am to Hong-Kong.... they will only open the check in at 4:30 and usually you find a big waiting line. You won’t have time to do anything stead check in, go directly to inspection, after to migration to finally go straight ahead to the gate to hopefully have time to enter in the flight... to tide"

No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."

Pros: "service excellent"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."

Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"

Cons: "Food was awful flight and cr"

Pros: "Stewardesses were nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Plane seemed a bit older for an international flight. Not much legroom, poor entertainment options no games and there were no adjustable air vents."

Pros: "The cabin crew were great. Very helpful and they professional."
Cons: "Dubai was foggy, they diverted us to Alfugaire. Supposedly for an hour time but we stayed for 4 hours and almost missed our connection. Not nice."

Pros: "The service and quality are absolutely OK, the airline is awesome!"

Pros: "Service was ok"
Cons: "I booked my reservation with kayak and pick out choice seats , when I check in was told by Cathay that they do not honor seat reservation from a 3rd party. I also paid for the exit seats so We have open space.. Very disappointed."

Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia. Staff need to take control of the plane and have people prepare for take off a lot quicker than they do. I only experience this with Cathay and not other Asian airlines."

Pros: "many choices of movies, tv and music program. great service on board"
Cons: "delay for one and a half hours"

Pros: "Everything went very well with the very good service of Cathy Pacific."
Cons: "Maybe a map of document control areas."

Pros: "Everything! Even coach was a great experience"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was very pleasant and the crew exemplary."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hours and I just missed check in for my connecting flight. I was not allowed to board by British Airways. Unfortunately this was a separate ticket and resulted in me having to purchase a new ticket at a very higher cost. While I accept the delay was beyond Cathay's control I would have make the check in on the connecting flight in time if they had provided assistance in transiting through the airport. Unfortunately no help was provided and after I missed the check in and spoke to the Cathay Pacific representative they only advised me I would have to find another flight."

Pros: "Food was good and service was satisfying. Staffs are really nice and polite."
Cons: "Seat is a little bit too small, probably cuz im too tall. But still u guys should have a specific section for people 6ft1 and above xD"

Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Not enough leg room, don't recline enough."

Pros: "service, organized, seats, movie options, temperature"

Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything is too cramped. The sound on the entertainment unit is terrible."

Pros: "Nothing good to say for this flights overall."
Cons: "Spent over two hours on the plane/tarmac waiting for take off. Air Canada sucks."

Cons: "Food could be improved by improving preperation"

Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"

Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "My wife’s screen did not work. The pitch between the seats was too narrow for a transatlantic flight. Older plane that needed to be cleaned and updated."

Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."

Pros: "Flight was great. Check in not so."
Cons: "On March 18, 2018 Joanne, Kevin, and Allison Sheridan were booked to go from SYD to YYJ and only Kevin took off. We went to the airport and my daughter Allison was too anxious to get on as she had to leave her father behind. After she calmed down we went to get on the flight and the lady at the check in, (Onwsha) said it was too late and we could leave the next day. She changed my tickets on the computer and said if we came on Monday, March 19th there wouldn't be a charge but if it was any other date it would be $150.00 per ticket/person. When I arrived to check in on March 19th I was charged the $300. I spoke to Sharon Smith who was with Air Canada Customer Service Coordinator and I explained I was told something different by the customer agent. I told her if I knew that and I was told by Onwsha I would have went on the flight on March 18th but would not have checked the bags and just taken carry on luggage as my husband was still at the airport and he could bring them when he came over. Sharon Smith said there was nothing she could do and we had to pay the $300.00. It really has left a bad taste for me with Air Canada especially how many seats were spare and I was told something different from Onwsha. Thank you for your time. If any other details are needed feel free to contact me."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding procedure was quite confusing with one agent giving verbal instruction but intercom instruction was contradictory. The entertainment for a long haul flight was a bit disappointing, compared to Air New Zealand it is definitely lacking. The comfort was subpar as well with seats lacking adequate cushion. Needing to repeat everything in French!!"

Pros: "I had this awesome trip to Oz planned via Air Canada, but it crashed and burned ( not literally) due to a legal matter. Liam was very helpful with cancelling the flight and assured me that I have no worries booking another with a bothersome penalty."
Cons: "Liam was down to earth and helpful"

Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"

Pros: "The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "I wish they had pjs."

Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."

Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"

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

Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."

Pros: "Short flight so can't say much. Lol"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."

Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."

Pros: "We enjoyed our flight. The flight attendants were efficient. Jeanie was the nicest one of all."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rather rotund and, as I had an aisle seat, she frequently bumped my arm as she passed by. Not once during the flight from Sydney to Vancouver did she apologize. Otherwise, other aspects of the flight were fine. Air Canada is my number one choice of the airlines when traveling to Australia."

Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"

Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"

Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."

Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."

Cons: "Poor entertainment selection for such a long flight. Very little food for Sydney/ Vancouver leg and I am small eater."

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"

Pros: "TV screens and entertainment were nice."
Cons: "I would like to have the two meal options be one with meat and one without. The quality of the meal could have been better."

Cons: "didnt like the cabin crew attendants. Only 1 I interacted with gave off the impression of friendly. When they canceled the flight, the information they sent to me was inaccurate and during the rescheduling process people were short with me and it took forever. When inquiring about a refund so I could find a faster flight home, they told me they couldnt confirm the amount I might be refunded, but it would be hardly anything. Therefore, forcing me to be almost a day late getting home."

Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."

Pros: "Airbus 380"

Pros: "Great service, friendly staff, fuss-free boarding, good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Plane could have been slightly cleaner (eg replace old, ratty in-flight magazines). Food was reasonable but a bit bland."

Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"

Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."

Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."

Cons: "* Worst food I have ever had on a plane. The crew did not even know what was in some of the food, which is not comforting if you have allergies. * Entertainment system earphones were so bad they were unusable."

Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."

Pros: "Leg room was great."
Cons: "The pilot wasn't that good. It wasn't a smooth landing at all."

Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."

Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"

Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"

Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"

Cons: "We flew out of Sydney at 12 pm to land in Vancouver at 2 am Sydney time. We were only served a lunch at 2 pm and a breakfast at 1 am. WHAT ABOUT DINNER????? As well, extremely rude flight attendant (woman wearing blue eyeliner)."

Cons: "The original AC flight left an hour late with no explanation. I literally ran to catch my connecting flight. Though the plane was still sitting there and still connected, they would not let me board. The AC rep was extremely rude and uncaring. He acted as though it was my fault. He rudely said the next flight is at 8:00 that night. It was currently 7:30 in the morning! And I had another flight to catch. He just kept telling me to sit down. Another rep eventually got me on a flight via standby, but I had to reschedule my next flight and it was a race to catch the last flight home. Very stressful day with little concern from the airline. I'll do everything possible to avoid them in the future."

Pros: "Professional but 'distant' service from both crews who are the Air Canada almost ready to retire gang, since this route is popular with AC staff who are loaded with seniority. Nevertheless, all of our needs were met with efficiency and the very good entertainment program helped pass the time. Would take them again to Sydney."
Cons: "The odd smile wouldn't hurt"

"The flight was EXACTLY on time and a pleasant flight. All Covid safe practices were in effect."

Pros: "So few people aboard. Allowed for great service by flight crew."
Cons: "Catering in COVID era leaves a lot to be desired."

Cons: "There was supposed to be wheelchair assistance at Richmond upon our arrival. Waited as long as I could. When no one came with a chair or any assistance, I had to walk ! struggling! so as not to fall to the baggage claim area, claim my luggage without any help, and then to my get myself and my luggage outside to meet ground transportation."

Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"

Pros: "Entertainment was plentiful. Impressive library of movies."
Cons: "The noodles for breakfast were way overcooked and tasted awful."

Pros: "Cabin was not cold"
Cons: "Respect passenger seat selection - we were downgraded from economy plus to economy with non reclining seats! Flight crew rude - referring to passengers as “bodies”!!! Entertainment system not working. Internet does not work on most of the flight!!"

Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."

Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"

Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."

Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Poor service in first class. Made me feel like I was bothering her"

Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."

Pros: "Kayak provided excellent info during the trip about flights timings ! Marvelous !!!!"

Pros: "I LIKE THE SERVICE ON BORD OF THE PLANE"
Cons: "NOTHING"

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"

Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."

Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "We arrived earlier than expected, the flight crew was attentive and friendly. The gate staff was really helpful in helping to sort out a last minute dilemma"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I rebooked on another flight very easily! That was excellent"

Pros: "United preferred has great leg room. Entertainment is through app on your own device which worked perfectly."
Cons: "Snack and drink portion was a bit small. Took a very long time to get my bags and stroller after the flight. Didn't end up getting out of the airport until 2.5 hours after landing."

Pros: "The stuff were accommodating and fun"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "The employees"
Cons: "The delay of 3 hours."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Super delayed. 4 hours plus for a less than 2 hour flight. Unacceptable. Arrival at 3:15 am vs 11 pm."

Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."

Pros: "It was a pretty standard flight. Nothing stands out."
Cons: "We were delayed due to mechanical issues, had to wait for a new plane...took a long time - 90+ minutes. However, they kept us in the loop and we knew exactly what to expect. Handled as well as can be expected."

Cons: "Paying for entertainment, it was free from SFO to EWR."

Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."

Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"

Cons: "My seat"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."

Cons: "Ko"

Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."

Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"

Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."

Cons: "Lack of leg room"

Pros: "Terrible my two young daughters flight to Pasco from Denver got canceled Sending them to Seattle tonight delayed And to Pasco tomorrow morning Missing school ;("

Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"

Pros: "Perfec"

Pros: "It was a small plane and it made up for some lost time in the delayed departure. The one air stewardess was also nice."
Cons: "Waiting for hand luggage on arrival slowed me down to catch my connecting flight. The flight was delayed to start with."

Cons: "I never feel you stay alert to make sure the earlier people don't take up all the overhead bins . It is not right the way you allow them to overload have too many big carryons"

Cons: "They take to different cities end up flying more than 24 hours I will never flight with united"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It wasn't on time to board"

Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."

Pros: "Helpful crew"

Pros: "For the past two years my travel has increased tremendously. United is the preferred airline: On Time Smooth check-in Friendly Leg room Wifi"
Cons: "United Airline's App could be more user friendly. Challenging to add my mileage to the MileagePlus program. Eventually had to go to the main website and navigate my way around."

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."

Pros: "Boarding was well organized. Crew was great."
Cons: "Magazine was old with torn out pages including the inflight food list. Connecting to the in-flight entertainment system on my Apple Mac was confusing and took too long -- it could have been explained better vis-a-vis browser caveats, etc. -- which is too bad because I found a movie I wanted to watch but missed the end as it had taken so long to load the proper software. Seats were too small and cramped."

Cons: "Separation of family on our tickets"
