Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "Food/Snack options Ability to connect Bluetooth to television"
Cons: "JetBlue is awful. TVs don’t work. Staff isn’t friendly"
Cons: "First time flying with JET BLUE Loved It"
Pros: "I generally love JetBlue snacks"
Cons: "Flight was freezing (like they wanted us to buy blankets from them). We sat on the runway for 1.5 hours and they wouldn’t let us go to the bathroom or give us an update on what was going on until just before we took off. The crew were generally rude and obnoxious. Awful service."
Pros: "Having WiFi onboard the plane,"
Cons: "The crew, when I was boarding the plane one of the flight attendants a Caucasian women was saying hello, greeting everyone before me when I got in front of her she made a head gesture to say hi but didn't say hello. It felt like racial profiling to me."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, main reason I like this airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The screens on the back of the seats are showing their age and the controls on the armrests are causing your neighbor to change your channel or the brightness of the screen. Letting everyone stream content to their own devices would probably be a better option, with safe charging available."

Cons: "Two hour delay given in minute increments. What was the problem I’m 76. Two big women sat next to me. I never found the remote until end of flight because the woman next to me covered the entire arm rest with her body. Seats not big enough for large sized people. I’m not skinny but thin enough to occupy one seat. An expensive seat for one way air fare over $300+ Orlando ti Newark. Left hotel at 11:30 am and landed after 8:00pm. Home just before 10:00 pm. A long. day"

Pros: "Great unlimited snacks, full can of soda, friendly crew, on time with take off times from gates."

Pros: "Leg room on Jet Blue is very nice especially when you have over a four hour flight. New movies to watch, and plenty of shows to choose from."

Pros: "Easy process going through customs."
Pros: "Easy boarding, free wifi, TV options, open seat next to me, there was room for my bag in the overhead bin"
Cons: "TV kept having problems"

Cons: "Delayed for weather ok but then we arrived but didn't deplane for almost 1.5 hours!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and courteous"
Cons: "The boarding was delayed and the boarding area was crowded, Boarding was delayed due to high number of wheelchair passengers. I was seated in an Even More Space seat, yet was placed beside a woman who was obviously suffering from some degenerative condition, and was slumped over towards my seat. The result was that I was uncomfortable the whole way back to Kingston."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I wish your staff could be more definite when they need passengers to gate check bags. While we left on time, the wait to board was stupid as flight attendants struggled to fit more in the best ma until they final insisted on gate checking the last few passengers’ bag."
Pros: "The fact that I arrived at my destination. Leg room seemed above average."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 40 minutes for no stated reason. The plane was antiquated with broken screen controls on the arm rest and tiny, low-quality screens. My buttons didn't work so I couldn't even turn the screen off for the duration of the flight let alone gain access to entertainment. I had to use my night mask so that I atleast didn't have to stare at Amazon advertisements for 5 hours straight on a broken screen. This was not a good introduction to JetBlue, and I would likely not fly them again. Not competitive to the quality or amenities of a major carrier. I wish I had read reviews of this company because delays and non-working equipment seem the norm for JetBlue."
Pros: "Boarding efficient, even if a bit officious Seats comfortable, even though, as with other airlines, a bit too close together."
Cons: "My wife had finished her cheese by the time the wine arrived Resent having to pay for a checked suitcase -- can't do less for a 9-day trip"

Cons: "No blue chips!!"
Pros: "Never again will jet blue get a penny from me - worst flights ever !!!!!"
Pros: "Communication, space"
Pros: "People were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months."
Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Pros: "The staff were helpful. The entertainment had good variety. Adjustable head rest was useful."
Cons: "The seat was a little lumpy. More leg room would always be appreciated."
Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and effiecent. Had weather delays, bag got left, but got it the next day."
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "For starters our cabin crew were the worst. The first service I had ask for a snack and no napkins. Dinner service was like just chucking food down in front of you. Then a stewardess looks me dead in the face and passed me for the drink service, then she said she thought I was asleep."
Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Pros: "modern comfortable plane, in flight entertainment was good, service was outstanding."
Cons: "food was meh at best, seats in economy are tight and there is no legroom"
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!"
Cons: "The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l."
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Cons: "the child got the same food as us due i did not make clear i need a child food, now i am asking : is not clear that in that seat is a child of 4 years old ?"
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
"I was not allowed to board flight since I have Indian passport, why was a ticket been issued if people with Indian passports are not allowed to board a flight."
"Nothing! everything could have been better. again, the tsa workers were horrible. They had bad attitudes, cursing passengers and a general LACK of professionalism. In my future travels, I will not be transitioning through london, and none of my future travel plans will include london. If there agenda was to prevent Americans from visiting there, they succeded."
Cons: "British Airways is always amazing"
Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Cons: "For me,everything is okay."
Pros: "Crew is very attentive and working hard during trying times."
Cons: "My chairs screen in particular was very difficult to use because the touch screen was not working 90% of the time."
Pros: "The staff was amazing. Took care of the flight well."
Cons: "The seats that I purchased were “premium economy” the only thing premium was the price I have flown premium with other airlines and there is a difference in leg room and seat size. There was none on this flight. The seats were the same size and room as regular economy. Not what I paid for. I will never fly BA again."
Cons: "American airlines connections were terrible"
Pros: "Great !"
Cons: "Kosher meal a bit hard to open"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good"
Cons: "Flight was terribly cold. Better AC management required"
Pros: "AMAZING CREW! Excellent food, clean bathroom, comfortable, good movie selection. Fantastic experience!"
Cons: "Better food better seats and bad movies. Nothing good to pass the time"
Pros: "The crew were above friendly, calling you by name and were very accommodating."
Cons: "Plane was older, seats were grungy and the onboard entertainment was not updated, i.e: small screens with poor visibility, some screens did not even work for some passengers, limited amount of movies/entertainment for a 10 hour flight this was disappointing and seriously makes me reconsider flying British Airways ever again."
Pros: "Fantastic customer service!"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding. They were regularly passing by with water & juice throughout the flight and were very friendly. A+ Also notably, they kept the cabin comfortable instead of the sweat lodge from my previous flight."
Cons: "I get that it’s Heathrow and not BA, but the random extra inspection process is super annoying. Nothing happens while you’re waiting in the terminal, then they pull you aside from group 2 as you board and before you know it you’re boarding back in group 5. If security used the time wisely, they could check 10x more people and not screw up the boarding process."
Pros: "Comfortable economy seats. Excellent experienced staff."
Cons: "Food was so so. Entertainment system is old and a bit slow."
Pros: "This trip I used BA and Virgin Atlantic business class. I would rate AA had the best layout of business class. AA I WOULD LOVE TO FLY IN BUSINESS CLASS ON YOU 777-300 Any where. Bonus: Bose noise canceling headphones. BA and VA did not have the quality head phones as AA did"
Pros: "Crew did a great job!!"
Cons: "Due to the age of the plane there was no outlet to plug in your phone."
Pros: "Hospitality from Crew members. Food."
Cons: "24 hrs delay for boarding this flight. No wheel chair provided though I booked."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, the meals and entertainment were good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Old plane,panels falling apart,looked unkempt"
Pros: "I arrived safely and on time.....good movie selection"
Cons: "Breakfast out of London was not appealing - eggs not tasty and potatoes mushy and lacking in taste."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Crew and service"
Cons: "Bad food Poor entertainment choices Poor TV touch screens"
Pros: "Good amount of legroom, no issues with boarding etc. Food was fine and lots of snacks available if you knew where to look for them."
Cons: "Not the friendliest crew. Large film selection but not the best choice of new releases. Quite action focused."
Pros: "Nothing. Just about delivered the minimum of what is expected of an airline, but did not over achieve. Definitely not the wow experience that BA advertises"
Cons: "BA / Heathrow staff at the gate were rude, barely could understand what they were saying. The plane was an old 747 that needs an upgrade. Cabin crew were disorganized and seemed out of their depth"
Pros: "VERY GOOD"
Pros: "The services in general."
Cons: "Not of anything that I saw."
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Make sure you buy food before your board. Business class seats are too narrow and you can extend out properly because the leg area turns sharply. The TVs must be 20 years old on the plane."
Pros: "Checkin was effortless. Seats were comfortable and there was plenty of overhead storage so nothing under the seat but my feet. I didn't use the online entertainment as I had my kindle with me but my daughter said hers was good with a lot of choices. Food a bit too spicy for me but everyone else seemed to love it and I'm very picky and plain with what I eat. Loved the foot rests on the seats. Can;t complain. I'd use them again."
Cons: "the food but that is just my pickiness."
Pros: "Food was good and staff did the best they could."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment needs a massive upgrade - Its like poke screen for every action. Boarding and check-in took an eternity Cramped seats No charging ports No Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Having a little bit more room, footrest and legrest do really make a difference on the long haul flight. The little touches like being greeted with a glass of wine or water, having proper silverware with the main meal really mitigate the general misery of long haul flying. The main meal is really quite delicious as well. You also get provided with socks, toothbrush, mask and nice headphones."
Cons: "Honestly, the seats are really quite hard and could use a little more padding! They give you a little cushion which I ended up sitting on to relieve pressure on my tailbone. The coffee that came with the box lunch was fine but if you wanted cream you were out of luck. Instead a tiny amount of milk was provided. At least you got some caffeine!"
Pros: "Very friendly and good flight attendants. Pilots talked to passengers and kept us updated throughout the flight."
Cons: "Crying Children!"
Pros: "The food was really good, and we were served tea with scones, clotted cream and jam towards the end of the flight. VERY friendly and nice crew."
Cons: "Cramped seats - unsuitable for this 6' tall girl"
Pros: "I liked the variety of entertainment selections. The crew kept us hydrated."
Cons: "Boarding process for coach from London to Dallas was chaotic. After all the various special groups were loaded in an orderly fashion the other 80% were called en masse which was disorderly. We had a lot of turbulence which the captain never addressed. I get he has to fly the plane but he could give folks a heads up on how long it was anticipated to last. It's scary at times and a word from the expert would be calming. Bathrooms ran out of toilet paper."
Pros: "Good service and refreshments all the way from excellent crew"
Cons: "Old jumbo has poor screen and very limited entertainment compared with modern planes"
Cons: "crew not very friendly ,I had to ask for water 2 or 3 times before it was given to me"
Pros: "Since online check-in did not work, my daughter and I were a little nervous that we had not been able to reserve seats together. Imagine our worry when we were told at the airport that we did not have seats at all! However, the BA agent calmly worked to get us seats .... and my daughter and I enjoyed business class for the first time in our lives! What an experience! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing -- it was fantastic!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The replacement plane was very old. The entertainment screen was actually smaller than my phone, with just 4 low definition movie selections that started at preset times. My phone had 45 HD movies that started whenever I wanted them to. Toilets were dirty and in poor condition."
Pros: "The service was wonderful."
Cons: "The seats are too cramped. There is not enough room on such a long flight. Some seats have a box under the seat in front of them, like mine (48K) and therefore no room for my bag or feet."
Pros: "Nicer and cleaner airplane, food was above average and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, stewardess hit me with the food cart while I was seated and didn't apologiza and looked at me in a very rude manner."
Cons: "23 kilos for the large luggage is NOT enough for an international flight. When tickets cost SO much money you should be able to have a bit more weight!!"
Cons: "I usually like plane food, but the gluten free meal just was not good. The chicken was very tough. I got a bottle of vinaigrette, but no salad!? Initially, I got no GF snack. Very shortly before landing a received a cold fritata in a box with warning "the contents may be hot" or not..."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent, the crew was very professional, overall the flight was very pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late on the take off"
Pros: "The service was excellent and I loved the unlimited movies!!! Great perk!"
Cons: "Landing was rough. Very rough."
Pros: "Entertainment consul for the long flight was excellent with lots of choices. Entertainment negative is when the person in front of my put their seat back I needed to also otherwise I would not be able to see my screen, only my knees which just about touched the screen."
Cons: "We bought a British Airways flight only to learn after we purchased that they were selling us 2 American Airlines flight which consisted of 90% of our travel time and a 1 short BA flight each way. American space was tighter then tight. Preordered specialty meals for long distance flights did not happen in 75% of the cases. Given allergy and other issues I found this very shitty. Fortunately I brought my own back up food."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the flight was fast and easy."
Cons: "New seats are very cramped."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good service."
Cons: "The size and quantity of carry on luggage needs to be restricted. The actual size and number of pieces needs to be enforced. The serving of liquor to passengers should be better monitored."
Pros: "Crew as always with air Canada were very accommodating. Always smiling!"
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."
Pros: "Really nice comfortable seats, amazing windows larger then usually with new technology. Food was ok. It was nice that crew constantly was offering drinks"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "The crew were very good. In any case, I shall fly with AC again."
Cons: "Lining up to check in with bags. The customers were "sorted" but I finished up on a very long line with only one person serving; after 30 minutes, that person just wandered off, presumably for a break. We, on the queue waited for 15 minutes for a new person to return. When it was my turn to check in the process took no more tan 30 seconds whilst for others it had taken 10 minutes and more. Dreadful experience. The choice of entertaining films was limited on my flight; normally AC has a wide choice."
Pros: "Beautiful new 787"
Cons: "Entertainment options could be more plentiful."
Pros: "The food was ok. Movie selection was decent and the screens are a lot better than on jet airways."
Cons: "Boarding was a little delayed. Service was a little slow, but the crew was courteous and did their best."
Pros: "I am 6ft 1 / 185cm and the leg room was OK for an economy flight. Food was OK for airplane food. Staff were very friendly. Overall very happy."
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"
Pros: "Air Canada is a respectable airline but the plane is not spacious at all. I mean, yes you pay for what you get, but damn the aircraft seats are so small. Then for people taking the morning flight, who probably haven’t eaten breakfast, you give them a measly omelet with a nasty side of spinach ? for the entire flight ? and a measly bag of pretzels ? Your starving the people which isn’t nice at all. Getting through baggage and getting in the flight was quite smooth and the air hosts were excellent. Entertainment was ok, there’s way to many Asian inspired films on there that I find are uninteresting, but hey, to each his own. Now coming back however was far better, the food was good, although can we stop putting soggy food into the mix, I know the food is premade but the mash potato is always so soggy and the vegetable mix has no flavour. Drinks are always great on the flight, entertainment was the same, hosts were great, pilot knows how to fly the plane, thank goodness, and overall it was a good flight back. Make the tiny adjustments I suggested and you’ll be at the top of your game Air Canada ! Merci !"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online and therefore wasn’t able to update with my dietary requirements which meant I couldn’t really eat anything that was given. I was told at the airport that it needs to be submitted 24 hrs before the flight and there was nothing they could do. Really unfair and not on."
Pros: "The hot dinner was good"
Cons: "The pudding was poor, it was just a wrapped cookie. The movie selection was terrible! Most of the films were very old!"
Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"
Pros: "its was smooth"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Due to late arrival of earlier flight employees were on hand to personally assist with our boarding. Plenty of liquids offered to keep hydrated. Lactose free meal had plenty of fresh fruit. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. On time flight made further connection easy."
Cons: "Bathrooms tend to get very dirty with the over use on longer flights. The bathrooms need the occasional inflight cleaning."
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Cons: "Old movies. Nothing recent"
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: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Pros: "Large comfortable seats."
Cons: "You now have to pay for drinks on British Airways flights"
Pros: "The movie selection was fantastic, the check-in and security was quick, the accommodation for my kosher meal was much appreciated."
Cons: "The plane was cramped with very little legroom."
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: "Not much"
Cons: "Being held up for more than an hour while they tried to figure out if certain passengers were going to board or not; when they decided not to let them on board, then their luggage had to be removed from the flight. LONG DELAY and I missed my connection in Montreal, had to spend the night and had to argue with them to get them o pay for hotel. Ground staff in Montreal were wonderful, especially Antonella, but the whole experience was VERY stressful."
Pros: "Roomy, professional, friendly. Very efficient. Beverages, meals and snacks were timed well, so that the long flight felt like it went much quicker. I'm not particularly picky or spoiled, so me rating the breakfast and lunch as great, may not be the same fOr others. But my meals were delicious to me. I would definitely fly Canada air again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "Meal -"
Cons: "My traveling partner - Giovanni Medina - was given ill properly prepared food. He ended up getting food poisoning. We had a connecting flight in Montreal to Orlando (our final destination and home), he was suffering during the 2 hour lay over with an ill stomach and then had to suffer 3 more hours on a flight home. He was stopped from being able to go to the bathroom before takeoff because they needed him seated, but he immediately started vomiting right before we took off. He then spent the rest of the ride sick, they allowed him to move to the back in order to use the bathroom rather than the vomit bags, but he was not comfortable at all. He spent the rest of the night after landing in the bathroom continuing to vomit. We chose this airline because of the rave reviews of the food, entertainment, and hospitality of the crew. The latter two were certainly true. We definitely wanted to make sure that you knew of situation because this was a seriously uncomfortable situation for him and we would not want this to happen to anyone else. He had the chicken meal and the meat pastry on the flight."
Pros: "It's been a long time since I flew Air Canada . Great flight, blanket and pillow provided - seats, movies and and a lot of snacks. Worth the money for a long flight :)"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew."
Cons: "I was held aside at the customs area and had a difficult time figuring out what was going on. Signage was less than helpful, and staff were unaware of why I was being held. After over 30 minutes during which the gate staff could only tell me to wait and watch for my initials on the electronic board, the staff learned that some bags on my arrival flight had been accidentally diverted to Canadian customs rather than US customs, and passengers could not proceed to connecting flights until our bags were located. The customer service staff then worked very hard on our problem. I was instructed to re-book my flight, since by now the doors were about to close - but that customer service person could not re-book me, and I had to queue up again for another agent. When I got to the desk, that agent was able to get me approved to board my flight sans bag, ran me to the front of the Immigration line, and got me to my gate in time to board. I deeply appreciate her assistance, as my family was already on the plane."
Pros: "The boarding process was confusing. The flight attendant did not bring me my food when she was serving the same row. The pastry snack was not good at all."
Cons: "International connection was delayed and we had to skip lines and run from gate to gate. There should be unboarding priority to people with connections."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "We lost one of our bags"
Pros: "The flight crew seemed very helpful and friendly. The pasta meal was good."
Cons: "Too many people are allowed to bring too much carry-on baggage on board. I saw a family of 3 with 7 large bags using all of the overhead storage space on 2 sides of the aisle. Women were bringing on 2 carry on bags plus their huge, oversized purses. The limits should be strict and enforced- one bag, one personal item. Their selfishness causes problems for other passengers and the flight crew."
Pros: "Beautiful Planes , the rouge line is cheap on their international flights but only first class gets free entertainment . I was first class but my friend was economy and luckily had her own iPad or would not have been able to use anything , that being said the movies for her were still not free . The food was good as well and their regular planes from Europe are very large and beautiful"
Cons: "Worst experiences I've had with customer service . The flight crew were fine but all ground service appeared overwhelmed and unable to assist customers . I had a flight to Athens that was in final boarding my friend still has not arrived the first person I asked said she didn't have time to look if she was still on the flight , the second told me it was private info and finally a 3rd let me know she had been rerouted and would arrive 8 hours after me in Athens and that her bag though made my flight . She did last minute make it via running to our plane but in that time they had given her seat away, she had to prove that she paid did and deserved a flight . The way home from Athens all of my aid Canada flights were delayed and late . I had a 3.5 hour layover in Seattle to switch carriers to make it home , my flight out of Vancouver was 2.5 hours delayed that they continually said was only another 10 minutes , versus being upfront that it was severely delayed . Long story worst experience I've had ."
Pros: "The meals provided from London to Montreal were delicious! Best food I've had on a plane before."
Cons: "there really isn't much room in between seats. You can't even lean down in front of you to pick up something with out having your neighbors move."
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "The fact that I could charge my i phone..."
Cons: "The lax attitude to service and customer satisfaction there was a problem with the entertainment system, took over an hour to get attention... But no positive resolution..."
Cons: "When boarding the plane, they called the zones too quickly. Then there was an Air Canada representative giving bad directions to the passengers as to where to get in line. Then she got annoyed and was disrespectful to the passengers as they were trying to get in line. She needed to give better directions or change the way they called the zones. Air Canada knew the flight to Montreal was delayed when we left London. They changed our reservation to Toronto to a flight that we still couldn't connect with because of timing. It would have been easier if they were more realistic with the timing of the flight and booked us on a later flight to Toronto."
Pros: "The customer service folks at Air Canada. They worked very hard to get us on the second flight. Running through the airport with us, pleading with TSA to move along, trying to talk sense to some guy who eventually allowed people to get off a flight, but wouldn't let us on. I guess its easy to make those decisions when he makes the call from some office via a phone and doesn't have to face customers. All other Air Canada employees we worked with were exceptional!!! Kudos to them."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hrs from London. Once in Montreal the systems that Air Canada uses to correct the situation are horrible. There was no way we would be able to catch our rescheduled flight in the time it takes to deboard, go through customs, get bags, recheck bags, go through security. We didn't. We missed the next flight too despite the heroic efforts by the staff (excpetion - TSA security. They moved very very slow to the point that they seemed passive aggressive to our situation). This is the second time it has happened. I probably won't fly Air Canada again, if possible."
Pros: "Love the new 787, don't know how I can fly in another airplane again now."
Pros: "Clean environment and temperature was pretty constant and comfortable. Staff helpful. The entertainment equipment worked well. This was not the case for for a number of passengers on another carrier's long flight within the past 9 months."
Cons: "There was a nice balance of food, beverages and snacks. However, the food quality was not the same as my previous flight. One meal included mashed potatoes and potato salad and I feel a green salad would have been a better balance. Taste was lacking a bit. Movie choices felt limited. This was "the" trip with the noisy, screaming 2yo sitting directly in front of me. I feel for the child and parents and feel some of the issue was the parent. Crew seemed to mostly ignore the situation. I'm a grandma so usually patient but others around me we clearly annoyed."
Pros: "The bilingual announcements. The movie selections."
Cons: "Most of the staff were rude and made me feel like an inconvenience any time I needed something. Due to delays leaving Heathrow and arriving in Ontario, my 2 1/2 hour layover was reduced to 30 minutes. And because I was transfering to a flight to the US, I had to sprint through 6 security checkpoints. I made it to my flight, but my bag did not. My bag was not delivered to me until 1 am the following day."
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier, food was lacking, flight left an hour late."
Pros: "I LOVE the individual entertainment screens - those are great! The crew was very helpful and nice."
Cons: "Again, my seat assignment was changed to a middle seat when I checked in (I wonder if this is because I'm traveling alone?), even though I specifically purchased a window seat 3 months ago."
Cons: "The fact that because I was late for my flight, my reservation was cancelled. I was not given the opportunity to change my flight at all, I just lost out on the return portion of my travel. I would have been willing to pay a fee to change my return, but not given the opportunity. Had I booked directly with the airline, they would have had no problem making a change. Buyer beware!!! If you don't book directly with an airline, you may suffer the same fate as me! This was an almost $1,300 dollar learning experience. Do not use third party online booking agents! You do not have the same protections as dealing with the airlines directly."
Cons: "The person next to us was too heavy to fit in her seat, so she flowed over into my husbands, making the whole trip uncomfortable. In addition she had a smell. Not sure what can be done about it, but it made a long trip really uncomfortable. Service and food was also much better on the South African airlines portion of the trip."
Pros: "I really liked how updated the plane was. The wine selection was very good. The entertainment had plenty of things to do - movies and TV shows were updated. I enjoyed the ice cream, that was a very nice treat!"
Cons: "I thought the food was not as good as the flight over to the UK - the mashed potatoes didn't look or taste like it had any real components at all and the bread was a little stale."
Pros: "Entertainment system was nice and I had a good seat on the aisle with no one in the middle, which was lucky."
Cons: "Getting checked in London was a pain. Air Canada had changed my original flight over (a change I wasn't happy with) and then when I got to LHR had marked my record for a change fee! Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Crew was generally inattentive, absent, and hardly friendly. At one point I was instructed how to load my (tiny) food tray properly after the meal. I am sorry but you are working for the airline and I am paying for service, which I didn't get."
Pros: "Generally OK Food quite good, relatively"
Cons: "30 mins delay Cramped even for Economy"
Pros: "spaced out"
Cons: "there was no food alergy alternatives (Gluten Free)"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Higher Priced seating was left empty and people were not spaced properly in the cheap seats in the back despite the extra room on board at takeoff."
Pros: "Not so many passengers so we're all spread out and enjoyed the space and privacy. Got free upgrade to Premier Plus."
Cons: "There flight was a bit on the long end (9.5 hours). There was at least one baby crying pretty much most of the flight."
Pros: "We arrived safe. The crew was courteous."
Cons: "There was an entire row empty which could have been used to spread out. What a waste!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Leaving on time"
Cons: "More space on the flight"
Pros: "Was able to get an Economy Plus seat, which is nice - great legroom for an almost 6' tall person and power plug is very handy. Entertainment & screens on the 787 is very good. Regular distributions of water was very helpful since I wasn't able to fill up my bottle before getting on the flight."
Cons: "Not a great amount of food available, and one of the larger cabin crew members kept brushing my arm as she walked past, which didn't help me get any sleep."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "Came close to missing flight because of gate delay because of connecting flight, but one of the flight attendants saw I was flustered and sweaty and gave me a cup of water before the flight even took off. Very thoughtful and nice."
Pros: "The flight itself was adequate"
Cons: "We sat in the plane for over two hours for mechanical reasons, then re-filing of flight plans, then the need to take on more fuel. Missed our connection and were put on a later flight that was also delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."
Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "If our flight took off on time. If United would’ve been more organized when it was time to board. My flight took off over an hour behind schedule with no explanation as to why. It landed late as well. I almost missed my connecting flight,i I hadn’t of ran I would’ve been stuck!"
Pros: "Helpful crew and loads of space on bulkhead with bassinet (had to pay extra for the seats though but worth it when travelling with five month old)."
Cons: "Misinformed about luggage being checked all the way to Auckland - like other US airports all luggage must be collected and handed over again for onward journeys. Also travel cot was lost in transit."
Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"
Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."
Pros: "the pilot is a pro"
Cons: "a restroom was shut down by the crew making everybody share one restroom"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"
Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."
Pros: "United seems to have simplified how it separates the boarding groups, so getting on the plane was well organized. The 787 aircraft was spacious and comfortable, which seems to put both passengers and crew in a good mood. Lots of entertainment options were available, so the three hour flight flew by. And we arrived early! A great experience on United."
Pros: "I received excellent treatment and will definitely use Kayak again"
Pros: "All and all is was a satisfactory experience"
Cons: "Actually we flew on United Airlines, so it was a bit of a disappointment as we were expecting luftansa."
Pros: "The leg room and comfort in economy, for a 767, were surprisingly good but the quality of screen and entertainment was lacking. The screen on my iPhone is bigger than the screen on the seatback which if compared to other airlines is not up to the mark. The lack of facilities to charge things like ipads or iPhone was disappointing."
Cons: "The seat comfort was good as was the legroom in economy. The crew were friendly and helpful and I found the overall experience good. If Unitied could build on that and just offer power (even usb) and larger screens they would be onto a winner."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Cons: "Fellow passengers; too many howling kids with clueless parents"
Pros: "all smooth"
Pros: "The movies, the crew, the flight itself."
Cons: "The food was horrible. Also, all of my ticket information said Brussels Airlines but there's no such thing. It made it very confusing because on my departure I was looking for Brussels, but it was actually United I needed to look for."
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly from start to finish"
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."
Pros: "bad movie choices"
Pros: "Crew was attentive....lot's of water rounds.... temperature and information while inflight...good"
Cons: "Food was really bad....though didn't expect much"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Was all good"
Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful especially with delayed flights etc"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old, bad food, lack of entertainment, poor tv and hard to use, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"
Pros: "Boarding and checking in was great.."
Cons: "there where some issues with the airplane from the beginning we were inform that the seat belt and cigarette icons lights were no working . but then they have to call technicians to do a recheck on the plane so there more issues no just about the lights we have to stay in the plane until fixed some people lost their connection flights. the terminal where we landed was a long walk to customs then pick up bags and transport to the next terminal no enough time to eat between flights. to stressful ."
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Cons: "Entertainment was awful. You have to watch movies on your phone and then the wifi/app doesn't even work!"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable flight and good service (for coach!!)."
Cons: "Would be nice to have some of snack mid flight. It's a long long way!"
Pros: "The space of the plane since I volunteered to be at the emergency door I felt comfortable..."
Cons: "Not giving me my seat number because my ticket was not a standby ticket and I seem to think that the agent thought that I was on standby but I have to go to him several time to make him understand that my ticket had a confirmation number and I did a reserve and I needed a seat number it was not on standby when he checked it he said okay and I also explained to him that I was a military personnel ... The agent should treat us with respect you should have gave me a better information and just throw me away then going back to him several times for the correct solution..."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The ticket staff. The only thing about the Harlingen airport is that it needs more than a couple of exray machines ....the Valley is woefully behind in staff training and technology. It took forever to get through the short lines...it was too long of a wait."
Cons: "The way that a couple of young AA men who were biligirent, combative and vulgar upset about their seat assignments. I told one of the young men to stop using vulgarity and no way to treat the lady that was doing her job, she continued treating them with courtesy and they kept mumbling under their breath God knows what. So young and already so bitter. They were towering over her and took a confrontational stance...she finally called security. I would not allowed them on the plane. I commend the young lady there in Harlingen."
Pros: "Safe landing in windy conditions."
Cons: "Air-con failure delayed departure. No complimentary food or OH. Poor legroom. Nothing"
Cons: "Ended up sitting on the tarmac for 30-40 minutes. Many people almost missed or did miss flights."
