Short flight. Too many announcements (occupied half the flight duration!!!!!)
Cons: "Missed connecting flight to El Paso and had to wait for hours in the airport on standby"
Pros: "The captain was very professional"
Cons: "Departure was late because of problem with thrust reversers. Once the plane started to push back after 1,5 hours delay, we had to return to the gate for another 30 mins because of an error on the maintenance logbook entry."
Cons: "Had to wait over 30 minutes for my bag. Crew was unpleasant at best. Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "Seat room is limited, especially when you are in the middle seat."
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Cons: "Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night."
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."
Pros: "Phoenix based First Class flight attendant Kathleen Brown was very positive and called me by name...gave her an “above and beyond” voucher."
Cons: "No electrical outlets at seat."
Cons: "I was forced to chance airlines, because, AA knew about an issue with the plane but still tried to used it."
The food was horrible It was too crowded An hour delay sitting on the plane before a 12 hour flight A morning flight, flying all day long in the dark as if we could sleep again after a night sleep
Staff was not attentive to the needs of the passangers. We have tried to call Air Canada for over a week with no answer.
It will be good to have Duty Free on board, as it was before COVID.
You had to pay to select a seat even 24 hours before. Unfriendly crew. Over priced food.
Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."
Cons: "Connecting flight in Toronto late 4 HOURS!!!!! There is no excuse for such delay. Another plane should have been made available for the flight."
Pros: "nice food great crew"
Cons: "the washrooms need more cleaning during this long flight messy boarding"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for the first two hours"
Pros: "Service on the plane was good"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and the plane took off an hour late due to boarding inefficiencies)"
Pros: "You fly a beautiful plane, the Boeing 787. Excellent entertainment, more comfortable seats, and just about everything on this plain was upgraded. It is a case study of how to do things right. The most impactful for me was air humidity. It was refreshing to fly and not feel like I've been in the Sahara desert at high noon. So, your starting point is really high, but you really need to look at your service."
Cons: "our flight was 40 minutes late in departing TLV. My connection in Toronto then was changed to a later flight, which was then delayed too by 50 minutes. all in all a 14 hour flight with connection ended up being close to 18 hours. My biggest two complaints about the flight itself is the food & the toilets. Your meals are the worst I've had in a major airline, and you should not serve customer frozen of close to frozen bread or sandwiches. If you are serving rolls, sandwiches or pitas, or bagels heat them up first. El-Al has been doing it for decades, go look at how they do it. But besides the bread/sandwiches issue, your meals are a really bad version of frozen supermarket meals. Just terrible all round. The other complaint is the bathroom. It was not cleaned frequently enough."
This trip was a Christmas gift to our family. We were flying from Lexington to Palm Springs. When we were checking in the ticket agent said one bags was over weight by 4 LBS. We were flying first class which has baggage weight of 70 LBS per bag, one bag was 54LBS. We then had to take items from one bag to another. The agent also saw we had a dog with us. Once on the plane we were seated with the dog in the carrier. The United ticket agent came in the plane with two other people, I believe one was TSA and the other some security officer. The United agent said we had not paid for the dog ticket. We had paid for the ticket when we purchased our tickets. She did not give me time to find the email receipt. She then threatened all three of us with either I come with her or she would have all three of physically removed from the plane. I left the plane to pay for another ticket. She had to take my credit back to where we checked in. She acted as if it needed to be done immediately. She said we had 3 minutes. We then sat at the gate for approximately another 45 minutes. This was so embarrassing…to be threatened to be removed from a plane that we paid for all tickets including the dog. The flight attendance on the next leg of our trip were not very attentive to the passengers. On the plus side all the flights were on time. All in all, this was a miserable way to start a holiday vacation. United Airlines showed no compassion towards the whole incident. I feel we were purposely neglected.
Pros: "Crew was making an effort...."
Cons: "A newer plane. First class was old and uncomfortable. Bins were small and didn't fit much."
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "Basic Economy forces you to check bags for a fee and prohibits carry on luggage. I was not prepared for this when checking in. Luckily, we were able to downsize into one suitcase which we checked in."
Pros: "On time, rare for a full flight."
Cons: "A little quicker on the baggage upon arrival would have been nice."
Pros: "Enough legroom in economy. Crew friendly and helpful. Kosher food good."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "My video monitor was loose and I had to hold it up the whole time I was watching it. I told the flight attendant but they said they didn’t have a screw driver. The food wasn’t good."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful. The entertainment system is good and fairly modern. The entertainment over WiFi is a great option."
Cons: "There's no Premium Economy cabin. The Economy Plus seats are as narrow as regular economy seats. The food is fairly basic, and many other airlines serve better."
Pros: "the entertainment program was good, and the plane in good shape"
Cons: "food was terrible"
