Pros: "Flight services were good. Staff friendly. food was good"

Specifically a staff member name Michelle was unprofessional and did not care much about passengers who waited for hours at the Group line because there was no indication that it is a group line. No one from the airliner bothered to explain or advise the passengers who were waiting and after more tan hour waiting when they eventually got to the head of the line they were told to go and stand in other lines. This was insane Long waiting times confusion Flight was late hence almost missed connection"
Pros: "The overall flight wads excellent."

The breakfast on the flight needs improvement.
Flight was late departed 30 late. Bagged claim took forever waited over an hour to get bag.
Missed our connection due to delayed. Ended up with a replacement flight with connections getting us in really late and annoying..
Excellent Airline..very pleased..
The flight attendants were rude, and then our connection got canceled and we were offered nothing in return for missing work because of it.
Pros: "not much; very crowded; feel bad for the crew too;"
Cons: "put more flights and give people some room; or put less seats; over booking and over crowded flights are not fun. basically, i am expecting some improvement either from you or from other companies"
Pros: "Not much maybe just the boarding"
Cons: "The staff needs to be retrained a lot like many police personal and subsequent Police departments. The first class is literally coach with a slightly nicer seat. They treat you like cattle at American Airlines. If you have another option take it."
Cons: "Me and my husband traveled with my infant son and thebstaff was very accomodating. They evn allowed us to change seats to ensure my son was not next to another person."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "They need sub titles for the movies for deaf people !!!and they need to work on there social distancing way more smh delta has no one sitting in the middle seats but American Airlines just packs the whole plane out! Smh"

Cons: "Actually leave and arrive on time."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Muy bueno el viaje y las atenciones"
Pros: "The crew looked tired and somewhat friendly. We were delayed about 45 mins and they really didn’t communicate much the Captain did. On the ground we had to wait 20mins for the jet bridge and the door to open and no one said anything. The plane was shut down and turned on again too."
Cons: "More communication with the passengers would have been a bit better !!"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "It was changed from British Air to American Air, which would have been my last choice to fly with. Bad choice!!!!!"
Cons: "No American Airlines! I have trouble with them every time I have used them. Usually their plane breaks down or requires maintenance, which happened again this trip. It made use have to run from customs to the other end of the airport in 10 minutes to make the connection ."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "At Miami check in, American had 40-60 automated terminals available for self check, but only had EIGHT open for use. Caused a needless bottleneck and the transition from there to the bag drop was also poorly laid out and did not provide a logical nor efficient route from one to the other. fix it!"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "Better weather"
Cons: "I lost my connection flight to Denver in Miami because of the delay luggage"
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Pros: "Made it home."
Pros: "Our seat was in a row with more leg space and this was wonderful for my husband who is tall. Also the entertainment system was great and the crew very nice."

Cons: "Did not realize this flight was operated by American"
Pros: "Everyone was nice. Flight left on time an landed early."
Cons: "The front row for the exit is too small. The diagram i looked at said it was an exit row on the 2nd leg of my flight. It wasnt!! Uncomortable for my legs. Im 6'3"
Pros: "The people that worked the airline were very nice. The flight was quick and no turbulence."
Cons: "I didn’t like that my flight was delayed twice."
Pros: "Crew was nice and gave my son Captain Wings"
Cons: "Left 50 minutes late, only provided sugar cookies as food"
Cons: "They damage my luggage both of my suitcases broken and the airline doesn't give me an answer and doesn't want to reimburse me the money I paid for the suitcases. Airline good for nothing."
Pros: "Immigration in Dallas was amazing, so quick and no fuss."
Cons: "If you are running late you might struggle to get from terminal to terminal"
Cons: "There were no available snacks and drinks between meals in a long international flight. In other airlines, they have continous supplies of snacks and drinks at the food area for passengers to enjoy at their leisure."
Pros: "Free movies and tv"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "Timely I have no complaints. The flight went well."
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
Pros: "It was an ok airplane, entertainment system worked"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.15 hours and didn't even offered water or anything, after a while they said if we wanted we could go out of the plane... really bad!"
Pros: "The guy in the middle seat left and never came back. Smooth flight. Good crew. Got both pretzels and cookies, as well as 2 cups of ice, with no problem."
Cons: "Entertainment system had some quirks. I choose my flights in an attempt to make sure I can watch a movie during the flight, so that's important to me. This one stopped once in the middle of the movie, but worked one I started it again. Didn't have buttons for fast forward or rewind, so had to guess on the timeline when I wanted to see something I missed. Then the flight map kept resetting to a mode other than what I wanted. I know these are first world problems, and they in no way affected the safety of the flight, but I expect more."
Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit messy"
Pros: "The fact that the lady at the counter was able to change our seats and put us all together."
Cons: "the movie screen being so far away"
Pros: "The food was okay, and the flight attendants were lovely. That's about all the positive things I have to say about that."
Cons: "The entertainment was high my list, only because you're stuck on a flight for many hours. Although I was exhausted because I had a 8 hour layover in Manchester, it would have been nice to have a couple of entertainment options. On my flight on British Airways from New York to Gatwick, we had so many movie and series options. These things are important on a long flight, otherwise the flight becomes torturous because you run out of things to do. On this flight, we had no choices, only what was given to us to watch. This made my flight unbearable."
Pros: "On time, smooth check in, great customer service at the gate and on board."
Cons: "Snacks should improve"
Pros: "THAT i WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GET TO MY DESTINATION."
Cons: "WITH A CODE-SHARE, THE TICKET SHOULD SPECIFY WHICH CARRIER I WILL ACTUALLY FLY WITH. THIS WAS NOT DONE AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT BECAUSE ALASKA AND AMERICAN ARE IN 2 DIFFERENT - VERY DIFFERENT TERMINALS. THEN THE LOBBY AGENT COULD NOT LOCATE ALASKA FLIGHT ON THE AMERICAN TERMINAL - ANOTHER DELAY. POOR EXPERIENCE OVERALL."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "Good space, the seats reclines almost flat, very close to a dreamliner."
Cons: "The tablet entertainment is complicated."
Pros: "Every single crew member was extremely helpful and friendly. Also the leg room was acceptable compared to similar airlines. Comfortable seats and smooth flight. We were even 20 minutes early to BCN!"
Cons: "The plane was very old and the entertainment was okay... That's if your screen worked, which mine did not. An 8 hour flight without entertainment is not the best scenario. Also, I know it wasn't just my screen that wasn't working."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable!but love the direct flight eben though it was almost 2 hrs late"
Cons: "Not enough space. Tv was glitchy. Seat uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "I got charged for bags from Fort Lauderdale to Toronto than Toronto to Halifax"
Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."
Cons: "The main meal was pretty dreadful. Grilled chicken with what I think was mashed potato, but it was difficult to be sure. Watery and tasteless. Accompanied bizarrely by a tomato sauce (which did taste of something). Hard to identify the ethnicity."
Cons: "I fly 5+ times a year and I always have to take Air Canada. It isn't by choice. There is ALWAYS a delay or something is broken or the inbound plan had an issue etc. It could be a lot worse but it could be a hell of a lot better."
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."
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"
Pros: "No food given. Flight was delayed on the way there because a crew member called in sick -- making me miss part of my work conference. No entertainment on the way back to NL."
Cons: "Would have preferred Westjet but they do not offer a flight from NL to PEI."
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."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "great crew."
Cons: "no wifi on a transatlantic 12 hour flight!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for the first two hours"
Cons: "Delayed, missed connection"
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."
Cons: "USB socket broken and non-functioning. Plastic fork snapped and shed tines. A truly ghastly movie selection."
Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."
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."
Cons: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
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: "Once we got underway it was fine."
Cons: "6 hrs delay! The flight delays were mostly unannounced and we were sent from gate to gate multiple times without explanation of what was happening. We arrived at 3am."
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."
Cons: "AIr Canada lost my luggage and the return flight was late"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working, so I had no entertainment for the ride."
Pros: "Fantastic service. I will use Air Canada again."
Cons: "The delay was unforeseen but acceptable."
Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
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."
Pros: "Everything was amazing! On time and nice flight!"
Cons: "I lost my book, if someone can contact me of where to retrieve it, that would be great! Thanks"
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late departing."
Pros: "the mounties rock, seriously"
Pros: "Space between seats in economy class"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and attentive crew."
Cons: "Other than delays and gate changes, flight was fine."
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."
Pros: "Boeing 767 is a great aircraft in every way!"
Cons: "A shame to connect in Toronto!"
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
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: "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: "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."
