Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."
Pros: "On time, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats are too tight. Board from the outsides in, not front to back. Windows seats in the back go first (after first class, ADA, etc), and fill the cheap seats back to front. As it is, literally everyone with an aisle seat ends up on first and overheads fill before people have a chance to know, requiring a lot of against-the-flow foot traffic and delays pushing away from gate."

Pros: "Apologetic crew"
Cons: "Massively delayed with no compensation"
Cons: "Just about everything but the crew"

Cons: "I could not check in online nor selecting a seat in advance. Getting the boarding pass and the seat was a nightmare. British neither American could not help me out. Horrible experience"
Pros: "We were very well looked after by a group of male flight attendants. The plane was clean, calm, quiet and we had all we needed."
Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving Chicago due to maintenance issues. Because of this we missed our scheduled train therefore I had to purchase more tickets."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Baggage took 40+ mins unacceptable"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in counter made fun of my surname. Bad start but not noteworthy unless combined with the rest of the experience. The flight was delayed causing me to miss another AA connection by minutes. Waited in line to be told I wouldn't get on a flight til the following day, they couldn't help with accommodation and I wouldn't receive my luggage until the following day. In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."
Cons: "Too many delays as usual"
Cons: "Too tight."
Pros: "Good food, kind staff, free booze"
Pros: "The flights were great"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work for me. When I called, I spent 40 minutes on hold before giving up. I went early to the airport to sort out the issue and the reps lied to me and then sent me to a different airline counter even though I booked through BA and was having an issue with the second leg of the flight which was indeed operated by BA. My issue wasn’t resolved until I spoke to a manager."
Pros: "The cabin crew was great at boarding and organizing the overhead bin space. Also, ground staff didn’t start check roll aboards before the overheads bins were full. There is nothing more frustrating than getting on after forced to gate check your bag to empty bin space (ahem, United at SFO)."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the entertainment to work."
Pros: "Staff did good jobn"
Cons: "No movie screens on overseas flight. I called day before departure and they couldn’t even tell me yes or no on that question."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "Best fligh I had in some time. Left on time, arrived early very attentitive crew (with smiles as they worked through the rear cabin - wish I had their names to give recognition for/to). Food rating should have had a ‘NA’ as I nor partner did not consume any food."
Cons: "Can’t think of one thing - unless a flying saucer could have delivered me like in about 5 minutes to Cabo! Ok - maybe one thing: charging for a checked bag on international flight seems rediculous (you asked)."
Cons: "The food options on the brochure were not available, flight attendants had bad attitude and negative vibe"
Pros: "Seats were comefortable"
Cons: "Didn’t serve proper meals. Sorry, a hot pocket is not dinner. Crew as ambivalent."
Pros: "The people were engaging in Friendly the flight was very quick it was fabulous that way"
Cons: "How could you have a 4 plus our flight without entertainment or videos in this world anymore?"
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Nothing unexpected."
Pros: "The economy seats were relatively spacious and had a full TV menu and outlet to charge devices."
Cons: "For a red eye they could perhaps ask people to turn off their lights, but it doesn't matter."
Pros: "American Airlines was amazing fed you a good meal fun crew good entertainment had 3 glasses of wine desert , and hot biscuits and coffee before landing was a great flight."
Pros: "We did not crash."
Cons: "American airline cares about on time push back and the JD Powers rating more then its passengers. So when you miss an American conection by under one minute they are keeping you on the ground while there on time performance "sores" . Then you enter the American over night accommodation Line and I don't have tell you how unpleasant that is but a 2 hour wait for a free shuttle to the hotel is one of them."
Pros: "Everything was very pleasant for myself and my four year old grandson. Have never had any problems flying with American Airlines. Thank you"
Cons: "Poor customer service and late departures."
Cons: "It was BLAH!"
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "everything went smooth"
Cons: "I boarded in group 2. A lot of the overhead space was already full due to the large number of priority passengers. This led to people having to go to the back to find space for bags. That creates a lot of jams at the end of the flight. Also, younger passengers often try to rush out of the plane rather than waiting for their row. This should be stopped."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant & helpful."
Pros: "I fell asleep on the trip so that was nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable for tall people."
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Riws nuch too close together. There should be a notice in the boarding area for passengers to download app so they can access on board movies. Or even better this should be included with ticket."
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: "Everything went well, the crew was great."
Pros: "I would choose this route again--I liked the timing of the flight and transferring in Toronto."
Cons: "The kosher food was abysmal which may not have been Air Canada's fault. When a seating problem arose with an ultra orthodox man who refused to be seated next to me (a woman) the flight attendant told me, "I don't deal with that." Finally another flight attendant found the man a seat between two men."
Pros: "Crew was ok, entertainment was great"
Cons: "Seats in ac 787 are very soft, you will feel the knees of the passenger seating behind you, I couldn't fall a sleep, you feel a kick every time the passenger behind you moved his knees. Kosher food was terrible! Not eatible! Plane is very slow l, took 11.5 hours instead of 10 hours with the 747."
Cons: "Not enough leg room Cramped seating area in coach"
Pros: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow and back support non-existent."
Pros: "Overall, flights were ok"
Cons: "4 hour delay in Toronto for our connection."
Pros: "nice food great crew"
Cons: "the washrooms need more cleaning during this long flight messy boarding"
Pros: "Really liked I have space for my legs."
Cons: "the food"
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."
Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."
Cons: "Everything Luggage no come on time This is the worst company"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and not bossy. Plane was not crowded. Pilot made up most of our lost time (see other box). Ground crew were friendly and efficient in Toronto, getting to me to my departure gate in time. I was pleased to be offered a food voucher."
Cons: "Departure delay of 3 hours from Tel Aviv. Unruly Haredim should be left on the ground in Toronto, not in London. Food voucher was usable at only one outlet, and Burger Ranch is a greasy spoon. Would more choice be too difficult to organize?"
Pros: "The flight was relatively empty, so there was a lot of room. Had it been full, I'm not sure I would have rated comfort so highly."
Pros: "Very accommodating with my seating requests; very kind staff and nice new plane"
Cons: "Got delayed in toronto for 24 hrs and there was a lot of waiting and disorganization"
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: "Very friendly flight attendants. Great food!"
Cons: "AIr Canada lost my luggage and the return flight was late"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "My flight to Toronto arrived late which meant there would be no way for me to catch my connecting flight to North Carolina. An Airline rep was already waiting for me out of the terminal, with tickets for a new flight the next morning, a ticket for one night at one of the airport hotels(dinner included) and meal vouchers for the airport. This would have never happened with any US based airline."
Pros: "Fantastic service. I will use Air Canada again."
Cons: "The delay was unforeseen but acceptable."
Pros: "The service was very good and the flight felt safe and smooth."
Cons: "Very crowded plane with very little legroom (and I am 1.65m). The food could be improved. Entertainment was decent, but the design of the controls embedded in the armrest caused my neighbor to disrupt my programming often. It was inadvertent, but still annoying."
Cons: "There was no information for the new rules of eTA and I've lost my flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto to my friends baby's baptism. Shame!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."
Cons: "I did not like aircanada changed my sit without asking me.I did not like delays."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were very good."
Cons: "Air Canada Legs were excellent, but Rouge Sucks!"
Pros: "Staff was super nice to my surprise."
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful The food was good"
Pros: "New aircraft 787. Direct flight from Israel to Canada, no layover in Europe. That was nice. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The worst part was the airport in Toronto. Very confusing to get around in. And having to fill out custom papers for Canada when I wasn't staying in Canada or leaving the airport. Didn't like that. But the service of Air Canada makes up for the airport, I would use their service again."
Pros: "the mounties rock, seriously"
Cons: "Flight was pleasant and food was good. I ordered veggie meal and for some reason I didn't get it on the second meal."
Cons: "Food was bad,"
Pros: "Great seat-back system, very good food and friendly, helpful service both in the air and on the ground. Very nice to let families board fairly early."
Cons: "Entertainment choices could have been a bit better. Would have preferred to be able to get seats more than 24 hours in advance as a group of 4 (without paying exra). I think we got the last 4 seats together."
Cons: "Having to pay for changing return date. You should have an open ticket option for extended stays"
Pros: "Arrival times for principle flight..."
Cons: "Long walks at Toronto..."
Pros: "The 787 is avery comfortable airlplane."
Pros: "Air Canada is a first rate provider. Their air rates are better than most other airlines, and the value for the money is exceptional."
Cons: "The plane was SO, SO COLD. The entire plane of people were miserable. I literally shivered all the way from Toronto to Istanbul, huddled next to the stranger next to me, who was also freezing. It was unreal how cold it was. People kept asking the staff to turn the A/C down, to no avail. I couldn't wait to get off that flight."
Pros: "Love the new planes and choose aircanada for all my Tel Aviv flight because of this"
Cons: "Food is terrible and it's always very cold. Near the end of the flight the A/C started leaking water from the ceiling."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"
Pros: "The crew appeared overworked and understaffed. I feel that there should have been at least 2 to 4 more to help with the large number of passengers on the plane. It appeared to be more than full and perhaps extra seating was added."
Cons: "The plane was overcrowded. Seating was extremely uncomfortable and much too narrow. I am a relatively thin person but the person to my right was large and kept on pushing into me during the entire flight. Plus it took us over an hour and 30 minutes before we left the airport because we had to wait until the entire plane off boarded before a wheelchair could be brought for my wife. After the wheelchair was brought and we picked up our luggage, (2 bags), which by the way were the last 2 on the carousel, there was only one line through customs for people with special needs. By the time we left the airport I spent at least 45 minutes trying to find the cab which had been sent from Rochester, NY to pick us up and when I finally found him he wasn't allowed to stop in the taxi lane to pick us up in the taxi lane because he wasn't an authorized cab in spite of the fact that I told the security person that my wife was in a wheelchair and the weather was close to 0 degrees celsus and it was snowing."
Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."
Pros: "Friendly staff, not as crowded as most airlines"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like -- they might need a few more rest rooms for the coach classes"
Pros: "This was my first Air Canada flight, and I was beyond impressed with the service overall. The plane was extremely nice and very spacious. The flight crew was very attentive and helpful, and had great attitudes. I had trouble with my entertainment screen early on, and a flight attendant went out of her way to reset and make sure it was working for me. The 12 hour flights both ways were comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "I honestly can't say anything negative about this experience!"
Pros: "Nice crew & good entertainment app"
Cons: "No space at all. Despite 5-hour length, no complementary food. Will not willingly choose Rouge unless it is the only option"
Pros: "Would defently will choose AC again"
Pros: "Everything the Dteamliner experiance"
Pros: "Crew was making an effort...."
Cons: "A newer plane. First class was old and uncomfortable. Bins were small and didn't fit much."
Cons: "Less full"
Pros: "Got a row to Myself"
Cons: "No Masks really enforced"
Pros: "GREAT SEATS AND SERVICE"
Cons: "other than free flights, nothing"
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: "Premium economy was great"
Cons: "Toilets were broken"
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: "A horrific, frustrating and humiliating experience at the Tel Aviv airport. United airlines did not inform me about the security process for transit passengers. I was subjected to humiliating search and with my bag still at the Tel Aviv, because they didn't have enough times Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "I liked the lounge."
Cons: "The boarding process could've been better (no excess of gate changes, overbooking the flight, and kicking people out of their seats). Additionally, the food on board could've been better. My chicken was not chicken and lastly the airline's hard product could've been better, no IFE is a big no-no."
Cons: "Pilot didn’t show up, we waited 2.5 hours for him."
Pros: "Non stop flight. The crew went out of their way to help us enjoy the flight. Food was available during most of the flight. The crew was friendly and enjoyed helping us get to our vacation"

Pros: "Enough legroom in economy. Crew friendly and helpful. Kosher food good."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."

Pros: "Alot of empty seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Very basic not so comfortable seats"
Cons: "Dirty airplain, 12h flight, the food a disaster, crew that don’t know to smile, restrooms dirty the igienic paper and a lot more...."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful. The entertainment system is good and fairly modern. The entertainment over WiFi is a great option."

Cons: "food was terrible"
Pros: "Lots of leg room!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flight was on time and fantastic!"

Pros: "Even though we took off late, the flight landed early. We were served two meals and a snack. Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "It's a 12 hour flight. It's exhausting"
Pros: "I am only 5'4" but the seat in front of me was broken. I had NO leg room. If you are going to squeeze your passengers in like sardines, the very least that you could do is make sure what little room you have left us isn't compromised by faulty equipment."
Pros: "the crew was great, flight was not overcrowded - smooth sailing the entire flight."
Pros: "I purchased a seat with extra legroom and It was comfortable, the staff was accommodating, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food was not good, salad was old, and overall not good."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "The comform of the seats was very poor. Entertainment only worked half way. Stewards did not ask if I wanted to eat or not. Only pessengers on the alley seats were asked. Very little attention was given to make passengers comfortable."
Cons: "I couldn't believe they did not have no tv or some type of food for 6 hour flight"
Pros: "Noisy intrusive spoiled crying screaming kids kicking seats shaking rattles and crew was helpless"
Pros: "We enjoyed the ability to have beer and wine included. We thought the meals going to Tel Aviv and on the return were very tasty, good portions, and served at the appropriate times. We loved the choices of movies/tv that were updated and new and also included."
Cons: "The only issue we had was getting up to go to the bathroom midflight. There was some slight turbulence and the attendants demanded we sit down for safety (it wasn't too bad though) yet once we got back to our seats the turblence was fine, and we got up to go again and the same thing happened. There were long lines for the bathrooms. I'm not sure if that can be avoided though."
Pros: "the flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We weren't happy about not being able to pick our seats before hand. Very frustrating not knowing if we had sets or not when checking in at the airport."
Pros: "Everthing, except the typical cramped quarters."
Cons: "The cramped seating"
Pros: "Non stop to Cabo"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and leg room. $200 fee each way fro surfboards. Lost the surfboards on the way home."
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "Did not appreciate the flight attendants at all. VERY rude staff. Not considerate by making everyone wait a LONG time to serve food, which was not served in a friendly manner at all. It was quite obvious they did NOT care about our comfort or experience. Would NOT recommend unless I'm desperate and feel like being around people who hate their job and want me to know it."
Cons: "Strange how the staff at lax just kept updating us...after we all got the update on our phones...in a non engaged manner as if it was acceptable and normal that the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Instead of just giving a cup of the beverage of choice, they gave us the whole can. I liked the snack they handed out much better than the pretzels on the trip out. The wheelchair assistance was wonderful."
Cons: "You ask us to rate the entertainment, but there isn't a n/a box and there really isn't any unless you use an electronic device."
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "i wish i have something to say"
Pros: "I liked the movies,they have many movies and I can choice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the employees of the front desk don't help anything. The service was worse."
Cons: "The crabbiest crew I've ever encountered - they even barked at each other."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "the staff was extremely pleasant, and so nice. the flight was ok"
Cons: "The gluten free menu wasn't very good, and also there were no gluten free snacks. 1% of the population has celiac, I expected more these days..."
Cons: "Not enough good movies"
Pros: "I liked that we made it to Cabo in a timely fashion"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to download an app to get free wifi."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Cons: "Some moron decided that passengers shouldn't be allowed to bring drinks on the plane. This means that after passing security and customs, after buying an overpriced cup of latte, you are told to spill it or else. And that's in a country that lives on security. Unacceptable. Unjustified and unheard of."
Cons: "The food was terrible"
Pros: "More space than El-al. No delays"
Cons: "Food. We ordered 4 special meals and got only one!"
Pros: "lay flat bed in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"
Cons: "United is a poor carrier, there's nothing more to say. I struggled with my check in (I had just had a spine procedure done 48 hrs prior).... and by the time I got help from an agent it was 7:03 am, so... They wouldn't give me a boarding pass for my 8 am flight. Add to that an extremely rude ticket agent who couldn't care less about helping me, and almost seemed to enjoy my predicament, and that sums up my experience with this airline. I will never fly with them again, that's for sure; there's so many other airlines that actually care about their customers, this is not one of them."
Pros: "Crew abs entertainment were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 10 hours. We were notified when we were already at the airport, no real reason for the delay was given to us."

Cons: "JFK baggage claim long delay"

Cons: "More space and larger selection of movies and shows."
Cons: "Did not actively watch the movie that was offered, but it seemed awful."
Cons: "For international flights every passenger should be allowed to bring one suitcase for free, I am traveling with my children for family of 6 they charge $70 dollars per person and the grand total charges for suitcases came to $350 dollars. Too much and unfair"
Cons: "Food, WiFi on airplane."
Pros: "The service, cleans and crew was great. The food and beverage was very good. The sits are comfortable."
Cons: "The time between flights was too long which. made the overall experience less attractive."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Ordered kosher food, meh. Could have used a little more leg room because I am 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Nothing except that it got me safely to my destination"
Cons: "Food was terrible and there was a long human hair in my beef. Entertainment was one thing only, and it was in Hebrew with Hebrew subtitles. Bathroom was out of TP, not very clean. Crew was abrupt and service was very limited, with one having to walk to the galley for coffee or tea after the meal."
Pros: "nice plane, cheery staff"
Cons: "Flight was 40 minutes late"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Great value for money."
Cons: "The meal of yaman bread was tasty but a bit heavy."
Cons: "The middle seats cannot accommodate an adult properly. I sat for 11 hours with a strange persons body pressed against my arms and legs I couldn't get any sleep whatsoever Those seats should only be assigned to kids or passengers that are traveling together and want to sit together"
Cons: "Delay, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Seating atrocious. Considering there first. Was given row 40 then at boarding was moved to 55. 6 rows from back. As domeone who suffers epilepsy and cancer and other health issues it was unpleasant sitting amidst lots of noisy children. I asked hostess if there were two seats up front was told “absolutely not” during flight i went and sat at back on crews seat just to make it easier was told to get off not permitted. Then i gave up. I fly a lot for work but wont be flying Thai again. Sorry disappointing. Ps I told crew member anout health issues and she was not interested. So cheers."
Cons: "Storage is too small for trolley or even a computer bagpack"
Pros: "Crew and boarding and price"
Cons: "Charging got coffee is a bit much. NO foot room"
Pros: "the part I liked was that the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "other than the pilot doing his job, the experience of flying on this flight (operated by Arkia) wasn't up to any basic standards. this began when the boarding started - we were escorted to our busses which was to take us to the plane itself. however there was no bus. apparently the bus was right around the corner but its perfectly aligned stop near the doors was hindered by a truck that took about a third of the spot. so for some reason instead of simply allowing passengers to walk 3 meters, we had to stand in a small inclosed area for about 15 min with no seats for the older people. once we actually boarded it was chaos. people stuffed their luggage in the overheads in such a way that they didn't close, couldn't find their seats and we're stuck in the isle waiting for others to find a place for their luggage. this happens, sure, but there was no staff in sight to assist and instead they were on the microphone telling people to clear the isle and sit down, like we're on a bus... why not have people board the plane in groups and areas? the bus did two rounds of bringing people to the plane anyway, why not do this smartly and devide passengers into boarding groups, for our and the staffs ease? Finally everyone were in their seats and the plane took off. this is a very short flight of 45 min. and I understand it's a low cost company but during almost half of the flight you just hear the staff on the speakers reading out commercials, offering to buy cigarettes and whatever, telling how they have the best prices(!). finally we land, and instead of requesting everybody remain in their seats until the doors open, like the staff does on every single flight I've ever been on in my life, the guy on the mic says some stupid joke. TLDR : the whole flight felt like it was operated and staffed by teenagers, and not the responsible and bright kind. I am very happy we arrived safe because the staff made me doubt the pilots abilities as well. nothing to say about the passengers, they're israeli so anyone who has flown with them know what it feels like. just put your headphones in, it'll be over soon."
Cons: "Got the worst seats on the plane. Didn’t have an option to select seats while booking. If the reason for a good flight price is bad seats it should be stated up front. ‘No seat selection’"
Pros: "They found an aisle seat for me even though I said it wasn't all that important....very nice of them, plane and service were great, stewerdesses were very nice. Plenty of leg room!!"
Cons: "nothing, all was very professional"
Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Pros: "I liked the landing that put me out from my misery of the awful experience"
Cons: "I will never fly with them again , 2 hours of security at 5 AM in israel ! And 2 and half hours of screening us in italy just because im a Jew and my wife is not , theu seperetaed us and ask us question to proof our 7 years of marriage for an hour and a half ! Then open our bags , and went throw item item for another hour , touching our underwear and dildos infront of everyone in the airport, hello!!!! Humiliation!!!! "Lucky" we came 3 hours before our flight , obvieslly had no time to shop at duty free. The food (blinches if you can call it food) was descusting! Nasty , took 1 bite and it was nasty , The airplain was old and was playing 1 movie in Hebrew, what the hell !!!"
Pros: "On time fabulous service great processes"
Cons: "Should serve beer"
Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Cons: "El Al has a draconian carry on limit of 8 KG, which they enforce strictly. The also do not allow a personal item in addition to the carry on. This is extremely inadequate and will prevent me from flying El Al in the future."
Cons: "Check in was inefficient. I was assigned a seat and I was flying with my mom and we asked to be placed together and they said we'd have to pay to sit together. Boarding started on time but then on the plane was a disaster. It took an inordinate amount of time to board and get everyone seated. I was sitting the back of the plane and there wasn't enough overhead cabin space for bags since they back areas were filled with other equipment. The seats were horribly uncomfortable - between by legs getting smashed because of non existent leg room and with the chair itself just being awful. The room was so inadequate that the person sitting next to me was basically in my space unintentionally. There was no entertainment for a 4 hour flight which was awful. It was overall one of the worst flying experiences."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Pros: "צוות הדיילים היה נהדר, סבלני, חייכן ומסייע"
Cons: "מערכת ההקרנה היתה מקולקלת. הסאוונדנלא מסונכרן עם הוידאו. לכן אי אפשר היה לצפות בסרט"
Cons: "The check-in line and counters were not divided by flights, it was chaotic, and I almost missed my flight. The crowd was disrespectful and the staff not helpful. Only when it was clear that people would miss their flights, did a staff member help them to get through. I almost missed my flight, and had an unpleasant experience. I will make every effort to avoid flying with El Al"
Pros: "I dont normally complain and almost never give a negative review but to many things went wrong on my round trip flying elal. Firstly i took a backrow seat hopeing for some more space unfortunately the way the plain was set up there was an obstical behind my chair and i could recline there was no leg room and the seat was dirty i fell asleep and missed all the meals and the screen on my chair was broken so no entertainment. On the flight back i made sure to get a exit seat but i was aganist the window and the bottem of the plane door gave me less room than a normal seat the tray is stowed one the side of the seat and it was in a filthy compartments sorry guys i dont ever want to fly with you guys again 9 hours of this was just to much."
Pros: "Food was ok, cabin crew friendly, price is reasonable"
Cons: "1. Boarding was through the bus under the rain 2. Departure was delayed because bus driver couldn't get to the boarding position due to poor coordination with ground crew 3. Total flight delay was 1.5 hours (missed connection) 4. Some passenger announcements (including connection information) were made only in Hebrew (had to ask for English translation) 5. The only El Al lounge in TLV closes at night (even though no "business hours" posted) and you can't get there if you come early or have long connection in TLV 6. El Al ticketing desk in AMS refused to help with changing ticket caused by _delay of their flight_ and sent me to the connecting airline (I had single connecting ticket)"
Cons: "Took an hour to get stewardess's attention. Finally when did get attention, was told not during being served that someone would return after. No one ever did. Called over supervisor to notify that 6 of thirteen video channels had sound only, no picture. She said she would see what she could do. She left and never came back. There were 2 aggressive passengers on the flight that I saw and they got what they asked for. Is that what this airline would like to pride themselves in improving. Other issues too, but do not want to state a list of grievences. " Tired and disappointed.""
Pros: "The seats are all worn out... we had special food ordered. On the way there it was messed up. On the was back they didn't give it to me all together."
Pros: "Direct flight from tel aviv to new york, great security, handicapped check in"
Cons: "No USB port at seat, limited entertainment, unresponsive crew-requested more tea and never received it. Tight seating, didn't leave on time"
Cons: "The light was out at my seat, & I couldn't read, & the staff said they couldn't fix it. There was no menu for the tv, & the majority of the movies were in French with Hebrew subtitles, unwatchable for this English-only person. This was a 15 hour flight. They fed us a tiny tasteless breakfast as soon as we got on & brought nothing around for seven hours! Just before they served dinner, I walked back to ask when they were serving & found they had tuna sandwiches in the galley, However, THEY NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT!!! I fly to Israel twice a year, & this was my first unpleasant trip with El-Al. I think I deserve compensation. Thank you. Harriet"
Pros: "Food was okay; make any diet"
Cons: "The worst part of this whole ordeal is that we paid for an El Al flight but were serviced by a completely different airline; very disappointing and deceptive. The airline "Prestige operated our flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv. The air plane and the crew were NOT el Al. The airline Prestige had an older aircraft with no TVs, entertainment for kids, the crew was not El Al for an overseas transatlantic flight VERY poor...on the return flight from Tel Aviv the same airline and aircraft operated by Prestige airlines was utilized and this time the ordeal turned into a nightmare. During take off from Tel Aviv as the plane was gaining speed to go into the air one of the tires blew and we almost had a catastrophe on the runway. We were on the runway for 2 hours and then deboarded; waited in TLV airport for 8 hours before taking flight on an actual El Al plane. The point that needs to be made is to verify that you are taking an actual EL Al plane NOT a partner airline....the airplanes on an actual El AL fight are accommodating and offer good service, food and entertainment (which is much needed on a transatlantic flight; especially if traveling with children)."
Pros: "Standard service on the plane"
Cons: "So, if you have an idea of when you would like to travel, and you purchase a ticket based on your desired time, BEWARE! Long story short, they decided to assign a different plane to my flight, consisting of less seats, and BOOT ME OUT. I arrived at the airport only to find out that I am leaving well past my original time, with no one able to give a rhyme or reason. Wrong gate printed on the ticket. Complete chaos! IF YOU WANT TO LEAVE AND BE ON TIME, STAY AWAY FROM THIS LIKE A DISEASE."
Pros: "Price was good"
Cons: "1. No organization to boarding, I e: everyone boards at the same time without a line 2. Very little leg room and reclining room 3. Hardly any choices for entertainment"
Pros: "Schedule, direct flight."
Cons: "Entertainment is antiquated, hot meal was soggy, lavatory ran out of toilet paper."
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."
Cons: "El Al is the main airline at TLV airport, yet the line for check-in for them is the worst-organized line i have ever witnessed. They should do what every other airline is doing to improve queues, instead of abandoning passengers to a chaotic process."
Pros: "flight was two hours delayed, then waited at taxiing for another hour and a half. TV screen did not work, earphone plug did not work. it was an unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Good smooth flight,good landing"
Cons: "All of the above,very bad registration/boarding experience, the flight and the credit is great"
