Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was great although I needed to ask them for my meal cause they passed by me. They thought I had my meal already which I didn’t. I don’t think they did it on purpose so it was just misunderstanding. My flight was on SQ 38 from Singapore to LAX on October 30 2019 Other than that. All is amazing. I will still highly recommend Singapore Airlines to other people."
Cons: "I think I have nothing in mind about improvements because I can see they have been training very well. I would like to say keep up the good work"
Pros: "Flat bed is wide and comfortable. Cabin crew was excellent."
Pros: "Very comfortable; excellent service"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."
Cons: "The food was not too attractive, better variety of main meals"
Pros: "Crew , amenities and food"
Pros: "Amazing crew. On-stop flight. All premium economy for reasonable price."

Pros: "Amazing services and foods"
Cons: "The business class seat was great"
Pros: "Ok boarding, plane was new, entertainment system was up to date"
Cons: "Premium economy service is even worse than economy as crew is never around and busy in economy. Seats are bigger but not really comfortable. Food is same as economy. Doesn't worth it to buy premium economy."
Pros: "All crew members are very friendly and helpful, good service."
Cons: "All over flight i feel good time, i don't feel boring all friendly staff, good service choice of food i like."
Pros: "Staff was great as usual"
Cons: "Many entertainment monitors including my row of seats were stuck for a while. The “please fasten your seatbelt” was on the screen and made the monitor unusable for the first 1hr of the flight"
Pros: "Crew were very good. Cabin was also much better than Qantas premium economy cabin."
Cons: "Had premium economy seat. Not the most comfortable on the tailbone for some reason."
Pros: "Cabin crew knew how to work."
Cons: "So surprisingly, the cabin was dirty and the seat comfort was below expectation."
Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Cons: "Excellent flight service no"
Pros: "Five Star Singapore Service on board the aircraft."
Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."
Pros: "Movies selection was great."
Cons: "Food and comfort were not as great as I thought they would be. Not bad, but not worthy of the brand Singapore airlines."
Pros: "The comfort and caring staff"
Cons: "Food serve a bit slow with the no of pax and long queue for the washroom"
Pros: "They were polite."
Cons: "Not as attentive as ANA or China Airlines. I had to give 4-5 request to get what I want."
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "Very attentive, great food, quality aircraft"
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Cons: "Expected to have more indian movie choices."
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "United miles."
Cons: "Entertainment very poor, no selection, I took the flt in Jan and the movies and selection was sane in Feb. Bad. Food was so so."

Pros: "Excellent entertainment system even in economy with many movies including recent releases. Staff were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Economy seating is very tight for someone who is tall -- very little legroom. Food in economy was OK."
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "Personal Touch!"
Cons: "No such!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food not bad for airline food . It was clean."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Service was best in class"
Cons: "Planes are old. They never seem to use newer planes on the Brisbane leg."
Pros: "Great service with a smile and can do attitude"

Cons: "I didn't care much for the meals, but my husband loved them."
Pros: "Getting up at 4am on a Monday (post Singapore 7s) - couldn't have been a better timing for a free upgrade (as the plane was full). Travelling on Singapore Air is always a pleasure - but that made it even better....."
Pros: "Service was great, food was alright, was able to move from a middle seat to a window."
Cons: "The flight I was supposed to take from Nanjing to Hong Kong by Hong Kong Airlines in the afternoon didn't exist so I had to take a morning flight. Was given no warning and had to check on my own. The Singapore Airlines flight was on time though."
Pros: "Great food. Very fresh looking flight attendants. Awesome personal entertainment system."
Cons: "Service has faltered recently. I had asked fo Riesling, and the flight attendant said they would bring later. Never did. Also, they no longer offer various Crabtree and Evelyn products in bathroom, and my night pack didn't even come with a visor to cover my eyes for sleeping."
Pros: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."
Cons: "Food not so good"
Pros: "Everything else was good"

Cons: "One restroom was out of service"

Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Cons: "Very cramped seats on old plane."
Pros: "Crew was polite and helped a lot."
Cons: "Confusing information about the terminal in Miami. Terminal C does not exist."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Cons: "Never took the flight because BA would not rebook me on a later flight after delays on their side caused me to miss my original flight, even though there were seats available on the later flight. This cost me a lot of time and money, but BA made out like bandits -- selling my original seat, and then selling out the next flight (because the delay!). Nice rip-off."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Bag travelled free."
Cons: "No legroom for tall people. Stuffy cabin."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly"
Cons: "The first class cabin was abysmal, is it was only marginally better than economy whilst the price was far more. Very dissipated with BA’s idea of what’s considered to be acceptable."
Cons: "there's no screen. hence there's no chance of entertainment. a cup of water or just a juice box should be free/standard."
Pros: "Friendly FA, good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seat density BA has put on the 787 is ridiculous for a long haul flight. Impossible for a grown adult to get comfortable with the narrow seat pitch on this aircraft."
Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."
Pros: "On time. Nice scenery. Cordial crew. All food costs extra. Completely full. Glad it was only 2 hrs."
Cons: "All food costs extra. Seats cost money (no thanks, I’ll stand). Every seat booked, so i suspect some didn’t make it."
Pros: "The Business Class accommodations and staff were excellent. The boarding process was on-time and painless and made a very long trip enjoyable. Despite my poor experience checking luggage, see the dislike comments, there were two employees who did go out of their way at the end of my poor check-in experience to help me. I did not get their names, but their good service was greatly appreciated. The plane crews were also awesome!"
Cons: "1.Outdated website information: I have a small travel guitar that fits in the overhead bins and I always take it with me when I travel, with no issues. It counts as my overhead carry-on. I checked the British Airways website prior to leaving the U.S. and it said small instruments were okay. I was able to board from San Jose, USA, with no issues. However, I was told at Heathrow that no stringed instruments were allowed at all, under no circumstances, ever, no matter the size, even Business Class, even First Class, even if other airports were not enforcing the rules. The rules that ARE NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE 2. Poor customer service: Due to the above, at Heathrow airport, I had mixed signals everywhere and had to check-in THREE times, twice to oversize, I was sent back and forth all over the place, finally having to go all the way through the airport to pay to have my item boxed. Most of the folks along the way were extremely unpleasant and rude and acted as if it was the craziest thing in the world that I would have a carry-on travel guitar. TRAVEL guitar, small, not full size, not needing any special treatment. Most of the agents, who knew I was struggling with this, did not help me, for example, I had to wait in line all over again, twice! There was one woman that tried to help me and put me to the front of the line on one occasion and the last agent was helpful as well. I did not get any names, which I should have, because at the end, I FINALLY had those two staff members who helped me (see liked comments). I still had to check my box, but the final agent really went out of her way to make me feel better about the experience because she could see that I was given the runaround. But the folks at Oversize and the pre-Security line, were absolutely horrible and rude. No excuse for it at all. None."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and the aircraft was in good condition."
Cons: "Everything costs extra, even water. The flight was long enough that an entertainment system would have been welcome. Finally, it landed at Heathrow—a terrible place to make a connection."
Pros: "Crew was bery good and entertainment package helped passed the time"
Cons: "Economy seats too small and no leg room. Dinner was a disappointment even for airline food."
Cons: "Theres no entertainment and I had to run to my gate because the connection time is so short."
Pros: "The crew are friendly and do help where possible."
Cons: "Choice of food is poor, not having a full service and having to pay for checked baggage from what was once “the world’s favourite”"
Pros: "Nice crew, short flight, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Only a small carry-on allowed and one SMALL purse. Also, there is a charge for beverages unless you are in first class."
Pros: "Crew were good , food was ok."
Cons: "Flight delayed again so both flights to USA and return were delayed... not a great experience . Entertainment took a cou0le of hours to sort, they had to keep resetting it"
Pros: "updated plane, clean and nice"
Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"
Cons: "Never got on the flight. the delay in the previous flight did not allow me to board this one."
Pros: "Were very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment only worked sporadiaclly, crew tried toreaet it numerous times"
Pros: "Great plane - new and quiet"
Cons: "Cramped in the back. Ridiculously so"
Cons: "Seats are way too tight. Plane itself was very loud."
Pros: "Because we missed our connecting, British Airways did provide us with food and hotel."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight because somebody checked in and checked bag for our incoming flight, but did not get on the plane. It delayed us an hour. The problem was when we got to Heathrow 45 minutes before flight left, but they had already bumped us from the flight. We could’ve easily made the flight, but they blamed it on the computers, and we had to get on a flight the next day. I think we need to quit relying so much on computers, and use our actual brains!"
Cons: "No thigh support"
Pros: "I loved the side compartment next to my seat in the upper deck of the airbus. This was an amazing airplane to fly in and I hope someday to afford the opportunity to experience First class. The cabin crew was very attentive and our attendant, in particular, was helpful. He made sure that we had our special meal and the whole staff was very attentive."
Pros: "Excellent service all around. Would definitely fly Iberia again"
Cons: "We learned the connecting flight from BWI TO PHL was canceled when we tried to pull boarding passes.This started a five hour panic for our party of four which was a leisure travel nail biter. We lost a day, flew into JFK and had to make other arrangements to avoid canceling our trip."
Pros: "The flight was bad I lost my luggage"
Pros: "Easy no hassle trip home"
Cons: "BA will receive a specific letter regarding our out bound experience from San Jose CA, and I would hope to get to speak to a BA representative about our experience as well."
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not a part of this flight. Rating of 1 star means I could not evaluate it."
Pros: "It was open skies British air."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Wheel chair assistance was very very bad. Airport crew made my parents to walk around 2 miles while changing the gates in London airport."
Pros: "The long walk in the airport to get to dinner next flight it's too long"
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Food was ok"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."
Pros: "We started to board a bit late at Heathrow and finally took off 1 hr and 15 minutes late due to some technical malfunction. The flight attendants's supervisor was very rude. Everyone else I interacted with was nice."
Pros: "The departures were on time or close to it"
Cons: "On the return flight back from London to Las Vegas, I sat at an economy class aisle exit seat on a 747. The flip up TV set wasn't working. One flight attendant initially offered to move me to a cheaper less desirable seat, which I declined. I asked for at least an exit row seat of any sort. A second (more senior) flight attendant then promised he will either fix the TV (by resetting it) or find an acceptable alternative so I "won't need to go the entire flight with a TV." But he never returned and the TV never worked. I didn't fuss because I slept and read instead, but I thought this was a poor follow up and follow through on his part."
Pros: "Politeness, precision, correctness."
Cons: "It was a little bit hard to understand the words of the pilots because of the noise."
Pros: "Crew was good and mostly attentive."
Cons: "Had to move seat three times because the audio/video didn’t work in my seat. Was very frustrating"
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES DURING A PANDEMIC. They were not keeping folks distanced from each other, they did not make sure that all the passengers had masks (I understand that people might take them off in flight briefly to drink etc but there were people that walked right on without masks on at all) The flight was FULL. They did a full drink/snack down the aisle thing ensuring that everyone packed into that small space would all be taking off their masks at the same time (if they still had it on in the first place). I did not feel safe at all."
Pros: "I got there safe!"
Cons: "I f plane had slowed downed during turbulence."
Pros: "I got an unexpected box lunch. Food was good. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats were cramped. A little more elbow room would be welcome."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "plug ins"
Cons: "The flight had an emergency oxygen failure an hour into the flight, so we had to turn around and go back to the departure city for 4 hours. Extremely annoying on an overnight flight."
Pros: "On Time Departure / Early Arrival. Pleasant Crew"
Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."
Pros: "It was a safe flight back to the Phoenix thank you."
Cons: "More ethical vegan options."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, decent entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "No AC, and after boarding there was an issue with the; we had to deboard and wait nearly an hour to load onto another plane."
Cons: "The entire entertainment system was down the entire 6 hour flight. Crew attempted to reboot the system several times with no luck."
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Pros: "Good entertainment. Gate agents friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and fast"
Pros: "Flight was only 25% full. Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats are cramped. No noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time. Modern plane. Got the sense that careful aircraft maintenance is always a high priority. Courteous attendants. Large choice of movies."
Cons: "Blankets but no pillows on this long red-eye. We need a pillow! Wrap was a bit doughy. no choices."
Pros: "Efficient, nice crew."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Terrible situation for a long flight."
Pros: "The first class service was excellent."
Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"
Pros: "When the lettuce looks like the salad you forgot to put away last night you know it has been around and about too long! Pity!"
Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Cons: "My luggage was inexplicably placed on a later flight which arrived an hour after my flight arrived."
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Cons: "Employees seemed like they didn’t like working for American. Flight was delayed and nobody informed us about it until it was past the past the boarding time. Missed connecting flight and booked on flight 5 hours past original departure time. Sat in an aisle seat and stewardess kept bumping my arms."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Pros: "The flight left on time - I do appreciate that."
Cons: "We were forced to check our Uppababy Vista stroller at EWR departures that we hoped to check at the gate. Needless to say this made it difficult to get our toddler through security. At baggage claim only half our stroller was there - they had disconnected the seat from the wheels. Luckily we spotted what looked like a similar frame to ours at the gate when we landed. It then took another forty minutes for the baggage claim office person to go through security, to the arrival gate and back to baggage claim."
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Cons: "My seat was broken and wouldn't recline very much at all."
Pros: "The entertainment was a new release movie - liked that. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, especially for a 7 hour trip! My tray table broke and would not close. I informed a stewardess and she apologized for the inconvenience and did her best to duct tape it shut (twice). It's an old plane, I would not recommend for a flight more than 2 hours. Wasn't greeted at boarding. Had to interrupt staff to ask which side of plane I should walk down to get to my seat. I paid extra for 12th row - waste of money!"
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Pros: "On time, no issues, friendly and professional staff."
Pros: "Boarding and baggage."
Cons: "This was a long non-stop flight from Miami to Denver. Over 4 hours. So I took the plunge and bought first class. I always fly first class on any flight over 2 hours. However, I was disappointed. The food was so-so and insufficient. The drinks were also not enough. The video displays were small and poorly located for the movie. The seats seemed uncomfortable. All and all I have come to expect a better experience from American Airlines in First Class. The ticket was expensive."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and movie selection was excellent. They did not provide headphones however. Boo."
Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."
Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"
Pros: "I was lucky to get an upgrade to business class. It was fantastic, of course, as business class should be. Great crew, great space."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies. Or maybe I'm just old and grumpy and not interested in dozens of superhero movies!"
Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
Pros: "TV and on time flight"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."
Pros: "Considering the thousands of passengers who saw their flights cancelled because of the grounded 737 Max’s the fact that I was on hold for only 30 minutes and then got rerouted for the next day is amazing! Thank you Air Canada."
Pros: "Crew, seats and entertainment. Unfortunately a rude passenger in front that put their seat back too far and refused to compromise so didn’t have much leg room over a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ran out of half the food options halfway down the plane."
Pros: "Timely. Best entertainment."
Cons: "Very disappointed with the seat. Then placed us next to women with children. No rest for us at all. Also no blankets provided. Others had."
Pros: "On time and new plane"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Honolulu. This made Customs and Screening stressful...as there was only 45 minutes to get through and then to the gate. No one advised that there was another plane shortly, which would have reduced the feeling that we had to sprint down to the gate. Otherwise a very good flight"
Pros: "Slight delay due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "By the time the food cart got to the rear of the plane their was none of the good entrees left for my family including my to young boys who had already licked out what they wanted, but got nothing they liked."
Cons: "24 hour delay due to mechanical issues"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite but didn’t go out of their way to help out."
Cons: "No room to store carry on and nobody seemed to care that all space was taken close to our seats. We felt penalized because others abused the system while we were trying to follow the rules."
Pros: "getting of the plane!"
Cons: "the bed bugs, no lights, no comfort, the cold, very limited service"
Cons: "Meals & steward"
Pros: "we had to pay for everything"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 40 till we pulled out n to the gate."
Pros: "Seats in business."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "They have good entertainment system and library"
Cons: "The plane delayed for almost 90m due to a mechanical issue. Of course, we missed our connection in Vancouver. Upon arriving in Vancouver, there was no help at all or guidance. Customer support desk was manned by one agent even in the presence of long queues."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, always offering water and anything else we needed. The captain was very good about warning us about turbulence. Boarding the plane was quick and efficient."
Cons: "I felt the aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly. It's disheartening when your seat/area isn't clean and you're stuck there for 13 hours."
Pros: "The waiting room before boarding was big and comfortable. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Children running around because there wasn't anything to do. Passengers ignoring no food and drink signs. A passenger had a nut allergy so no food could be eaten or served with nuts. I understand this serious health risk, but passengers need to be handed out free of charge crackers or cookies if they were counting on eating their own snack. Passengers were putting both their carry on and personal item in the over head storage and therefore there wasn't enough storage for those would only wished to store one item."
Pros: "friendly flight attendants good entertainment options"
Cons: "it was fine. I was pleasantly surprised after the first leg of my trip from Seattle to Toronto, where the staff were much less professional."
Cons: "I only had one gripe about this flight and my one other flight on Air Canada Rouge; the overhead bins are very poorly designed. I purchased a carry on bag specifically to meet their regs, yet it had it go in the bin longways, taking up a ton of room. The bins are tall, which is wasted space, when what they really need is another 1-2" in depth."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there was some extra space....ie empty seats"
Cons: "The flight was 1.5 hours late in departing. Fortunately we just made our connecting flight in time."
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."
Cons: "Check in was slow and confusing."
Pros: "The food was good, staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left an hour late with no explanation, causing us to miss our connecting flight in Toronto. They did switch our boarding passes to a later flight, but only 1 of 3 pieces of luggage arrived in chicago (as did also to 4 other families on our flight) it took 2 more days until we received them."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, and the boarding and de-planing process went smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was really cold, and we were told that they couldn't adjust the temperature, but we could have a blanket - at a cost. We have heard from other people who travelled Rouge about how cold their flight was, too. I also didn't realize that there wouldn't be in-flight movies - unless you rented an i-pad, etc. That was a bit disappointing for a 6-hour flight. I think that I would rather have paid a little higher fee for the flight and have some of the things built into the ticket than have to keep paying out money for all the different things."
Pros: "On time Excellent take off and landing Good service"
Pros: "Lufthansa was amazing food, entertainment, condition of plane, service, etc... Compared to Air Canada! We had a Aur Canada ticket but it was Lufthansa operated. However, Lufthansa comfort not as good as we were cramped in small seats and couldn't see out on the long daytime flight because the window passenger closed all the windows (it was like being cramped in a cardboard box for ten plus hours... Thank heavens for the great drinks, food, water, and entertainment."
Cons: "Small seats. Window shades down all day on a daytime flight."
Cons: "A totally unremarkable experience. There is no wifi and no extra legroom option. This is a very "economy" level of service for an international flight. Packed in like sardines, offered gross food, hardly anything to entertain you and they literally never stop walking up and down the aisles with carts so good luck going to the bathroom. (that could be said of almost any flight nowadays)."
Cons: "Misinformation and poor scheduling caused us to miss connecting flights both ways! Luggage was delayed for 2 days. Flights were late and cramped. I had to buy one way ticket on another airline or be stuck in Montreal for 3 days."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats are extremely small and cramped. Temperature was too cold during the flight and there wasn't even a fan on so it was the cabin temperature which couldn't be adjusted. In addition No blankets or cushions were provided. The leg room was horrible. I'm only 5'5" and I felt cramped, so I can't imagine how it would feel for someone taller. also, no one checked bags due to the newly imposed fee so everyone crammed their luggage into the overhead compartments and many of us had no room to store our carry-ons and had to put it below our seats, causing even less leg room. the Hawaiian airport also locked out the waiting area for international flights back to Vancouver due to some policy that the area must be locked down until the plane has arrived and everyone is off the plane. Many of us were sitting on the ground outside in the non-air conditioned hallway in front of the stores like homeless people for over 2 hours. Luckily seniors were sitting on wheelchairs and did not have to wait while standing or sitting on the ground. They finally let us in 20 minutes before boarding but really by then it made no difference."
Cons: "They didn't let me board because I changed the original return ticket paying with a different credit card (still mine)...although they processed the payment and sent me a confirmation ticket"
Cons: "Not even one single snack for free"
Pros: "Crew is quite young and friendly.. good service. Boarding was quick and easy. Blanket and neck pillow package were comfy and worth the $7"
Cons: "The plane was FREEZING and the seats are a bit cramped."
Pros: "Comfort and Entertainment were great. They were punctual as well."
Cons: "The overall checking process was horrible. Nobody to provide help in Mexico City. We ended up spending extra time on line even though we did online check-in. One of our bags never made it. Which was very frustrating since we were traveling with two kids and were the last to leave waiting for the bag that never made it. At Newark, the lady that handled our missed bag claim had little customer service skills. All she said was that it was common for stuff like that to happen. Just that experience might make this the first and last time I use Air Canada again."
Cons: "Plane was 3 hours late. 10$ meal voucher was all I was given. Had to run to make my connection to europe. Causing lost luggage for 3 days."
Pros: "Service, attendants."
Cons: "Food for charge."
Cons: "There was little seating space. I was unable to fully recline back because the person sitting behind me was too tall. Also had broken/uneven food tray."
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Horrible seats"
Pros: "Short flight, crew is friendly, and easy boarding process."
Cons: "I find the Air Canada flights between Toronto and Newark are frequently delayed."
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."
Pros: "entertainment system was pretty good"
Cons: "Air Canada generally charges too much and jacks up their prices way too much."
Pros: "Everything was average."
Cons: "Not all food available on the food catalog menu."
Pros: "Plane was late due to Stewart missing the bus from their hotel?...seriously unprofessional and the check in staff lying to customers to accommodate others customers from an undeparted flight from the night before?...attempting to change my flight due to this?...seriously need to do better Air Canada...and to top it all off you are served by a snotty unprofessional group of stewards?....a huge JOKE!....won't be flying this airline again and I will be spreading the word!"
Pros: "Good crew. Spacious seats"
Cons: "Needed the app to watch Player movies which you don't know about until you're onboard and its too late to download the app"
Cons: "The food was awful! Dinner was barely ok and don't over advertise your "light breakfast." A cold piece of banna bread slapped down on my tray barely can be called a snack! The seats on the seemingly very old 767 were painfully uncomfortable. The 320 had better seating. And what entertainment?????"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "The entertainment options seem quite limited for a flight that long. Most of the movies and television episodes offered were dated."
Pros: "Wide seats."
Cons: "Small leg space. No window by seat. The seating map did not make this known, otherwise I would have chosen another seat."
Pros: "The crew did a fine job after a hard day."
Cons: "The monitor showed delay after delay--finally at 2 1/2 hours--and no one ever made any announcement. Customer service desks were closing and there was no agents at the gate. Customers did not get any information about why they were leaving at 23:25 rather than 20:55. Finally one agent started to fill us in but no announcements in gate area. This was a really unpleasant delay situation. We needed a lot more information and gate agents to help out. I will strongly try to avoid Air Canada in the future. Overall two thumbs down on the experience."
Pros: "The staff in Toronto were very helpful with special boarding."
Cons: "See above note. Staff were also rude during the deplanning process for wheelchair passenger."
