Service is excellent. The boys lanes are all old and outdated, that’s after 6 different flights. Food is ok, but definitely Turkish food. You must ask for alcoholic beverages, it is not given readily. We had a 14 hour layover and supposedly an overnight hotel was provided. That turned out to be a 3 hour fiasco at midnight which TA did not make easy or offer assistance.
Rude staff and very complicated boarding experience. Had passport checked 9 times.
Boarding was straightforward in IST, but security was strict (everyone's passport, boarding pass, and Covid tests were checked and re-checked 3 times within about 40 ft by 3 different sets of TK employees), with a final carry-on bag check with bomb nitrates swab for every passenger. And that was before boarding passes were scanned to step onto the plane. I first flew Turkish Airlines in 2005 and was extremely impressed. (The strict security process for flying to the US was much the same then as now, when they flew from the old Istanbul airport.) I have flown TK several times since and seen improvement, but not at the rate of its competitors, especially in the region. However, for my last trip (with a long leg between IST and LAX) they were half the price of other flagship carriers. Food quality, quantity and variety have declined, although that may be due to Covid restrictions. The lavatories remained clean but at least one ran out of TP & all other paper supplies half way to LAX. A couple of passengers (in economy, with me) took to using the business class lavatories and got into a dispute (real shouting match) with the flight attendants about it. (The passengers were in the wrong and escalating with unreasonable demands, but one flight attendant let his temper get the better of him. I didn't count but it seemed that there were fewer flight attendants on duty, with one being a fully robed "hygiene officer".) They did take Covid seriously, and distributed hygiene kits with masks, wipes, etc. to every passenger. If transiting through Istanbul before a long flight leg, consider using the airport hotel (YotelAir) within the terminal for international transfers (behind security). Reserve a room, as it was booked out when I last flew through. Otherwise, there are few places to sit down or rest once through to the International Transfers area.
Nevýhody: "Due to mishandling of the situation, we were not allowed to board the plane, despite the fact there was no restriction for us not to do so."
Nevýhody: "Better food options but that’s for all airlines!"
Nevýhody: "Good service no delayed"
Výhody: "I like everything about this airline... from the ticket prices, to their membership in Star Alliance, to their awesome customer service."
Výhody: "Very uncomfortable"
Nevýhody: "More cushion"
Výhody: "Entertainment package"
Nevýhody: "I paid extra money for the upgrade to sit the exit but only to be told after boarding that due to my size and age that I can’t sit on the exit aisle. Then I said okay, I’ll move if I get a refund and the the flight attendant said that they will. So then I swapped to a middle seat by the attendants directive all the way in the back. After the plane takes off, the flight attendant said that can not refund me the upgrade. I was extremely frustrated and felt discriminated because of my age and size. I demanded to sit back to my original assigned seat but they refused. Not to mention, the flight was delayed!! Unpleasant experience and a rip off."
Nevýhody: "Crowd highly liked company deserves crowd"
Výhody: "Never flown TK before and was satisfied. Very good crew, acceptable entertainment, good food."
Nevýhody: "Not their fault but 14-hour flights are exhausting."
Výhody: "Like flying first class"
Výhody: "I really liked the selection of food, beverages, and movies"
Nevýhody: "Economy is SO cramped for such a long flight."
Výhody: "The food was good and the entertainment was fine."
Nevýhody: "After missing our connecting flight in Istanbul on our Turkish Airlines flight on January 9th from LAX-Addis Ababa (due to a nearly 45 minute delayed flight), my sister and I had to spend 24 hours in Istanbul and still pay for a night in our 4 star hotel in Addis, despite the fact that we weren't there. So, in preparation for our flight back to LAX, I spent hours on the phone with a Turkish Airlines representative to ensure that we would not miss our connecting flight on the way back to LAX on January 29 (Jomo Kenyatta-IST-LAX). The TA representative spoke very little English and became incredibly frustrated with me when I expressed my concern about how closely scheduled our connecting flights in Istanbul were. The representative said she could "help us" by seating us at the back of the plane from Jomo Kenyatta-IST, as she was "mostly sure" that our plane would deboard from the back of the plane once we arrived in Istanbul and, in theory, we wouldn't have to wait behind all the other customers to exit. This was totally incorrect: our plane only deboarded from the front exit door and the seats she selected at the back would surely have caused us to miss our next flight were it not for the fact that the plane wasn't full and we arrived only a few minutes late. Still, by the time we got off the plane in IST, our connecting flight was already 15 minutes into boarding. We showed the TA attendants our boarding passes at the long security line, and at first they both said, "don't worry, it will be fine". I had to convince them to let us skip the line as we would clearly have missed our flight. Once we finally made it through security we ran through the ENTIRE Istanbul airport to get to our gate, as we could hear them calling the final boarding call for our flight to LAX. We literally ran as fast as we could for almost 20 minutes straight, with all of our bags, which ended up being over a mile, I would guess. When we got to our gate, we had to go through yet another security line - WHY??? Apparently there was a celebrity in front of us, and while we were sweating and nervous about missing our flight, the security agents were taking selfies with the celebrity. It was insulting and rude and totally unprofessional. The take away for me is that Turkish Airlines should NOT be allowed to sell flights to people that give them less than an hour to make international connecting, especially in an airport as large and disorganized as Istanbul, and especially when Turkish Airlines flights are often late or delayed. This was one of the most stressful flying experiences of my life."
Nevýhody: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"
Výhody: "Surprisingly good food. Great in flight movie selection."
Výhody: "Timeliness of flights. 3 of 4 planes modern and well appointed! VERY good food."
Nevýhody: "Good plane. Comfortable seats and entertainment system."
Nevýhody: "The crew blocks economy passengers from moving forward until all of first class has left. No other airline does this and its really annoying"
Výhody: "All was perfect"
Nevýhody: "Flight was delayed 2 hours before take off."
Výhody: "When I missed my flight from Belgrade to Istanbul due to plane being late 45 min.and I missed my flight to LA, they gave me a free accommodation and meals."
Nevýhody: "I didn't like the fact that nobody told me that Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is so big that you can not make to connect flight on time for an hour.Especially if you flight has been late to depart like mine from Belgrade due to the rain. I thought I will make it to the connect flight to LA but the gate was already closed. I was instructed to do multiple errands, to get Turkish visa, etc all on my expense to be able to exit the transit as an American citizen and be able to take Turkish airlines bus to the hotel.The hotel was fine and the meals. The problem was that they calculate bus traveling time wrong in the hotel and put people on the bus next day too late, so due to the traffic jam, we barely made it to the airport, and then we had to stress the officials to put us on the fast passport control lane due to boarding time."
Výhody: "Comfort, food, staff, everything"
Výhody: "They are literally the BEST airline I have every flown! All the crew are so nice and it is their policy to give you all of the comforts - pillows, blankets, headphones, drinks (including alcohol), movies, musics, games, meals, snacks and probably more! I don't think they have a way to take money! This was the best flying experience I have ever had! The plane itself was also very nice. There was touchscreen in front of me with all kinds of entertainment plus a USB charger for my phone. They also made sure the closest connecting flight folks had gate attendants waiting for them. The service is phenomenal all the way around!"
Výhody: "Eat fare , amazing customer services . Turkish airlines s pretty good. And affordable .."
Nevýhody: "Nothing , it was all good"
Výhody: "The in-flight entertainment was good and the flight attendants were very nice. They offered us small sandwiches and drinks during the flight so it was comfortable to fly with them."
Nevýhody: "You need to buy a visa if you want to enter the country and they only accept USD, Euros or GBP. The only currency exchange is on the other side of passport control so you have to use one of the ATMs and they only give you $100. The staff is unprofessional and seems clueless when you ask them for help. The kiosks are a nightmare and working with them is worse than working with the people. They freeze, and glitch and many of them just flat out don't work. Probably one of the worst airports I've ever been to."
Výhody: "The comfort of the seats, entertainment, & food were great as always. The only Turkish Airlines flight I had during this trip that was not delayed, however needed to be due to the previous flight. The crew did hold the flight for all of us from the delayed flight from Athens."
Nevýhody: "An elderly woman was booked in a window seat and she insisted she take my aisle seat without any additional available aisle seats. However, this would be better handled when she requested for assistance during her booking process. The crew should've anticipate her needs and booked an aisle seat, or even be the ones to ask me or another passenger if I would be willing to trade. I was placed on the spot and no courtesy was shown to me. My legs were completely swollen and in pain because I wasn't able to stand periodically. I too booked my flight early and requested my seats appropriately for my health needs."
Výhody: "Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids."
Nevýhody: "Flight attendants are rude and food was terrible! No menu and no selection to choose."
Nevýhody: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."
Výhody: "Flight crew was pleasant."
Nevýhody: "When I check-in for flight from Rome to Istanbul and Istanbul to Los Angeles, only the first leg of trip was confirmed correctly. For the leg from Istanbul to Los Angeles I confirmed a window seat when I checked-in online. However, when I arrived at the airport I has a middle seat and could not change it and the 15 hour flight was miserable. I also asked to be upgraded to business class and told it would be $3,500.00, which was ridiculous."
Výhody: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Nevýhody: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Výhody: "The food was pretty good"
Nevýhody: "The seats were too close so you could hardly move when the seat in front reclined. They didn't clean the bathroom during an entire 13 hour flight and it needed it."
Výhody: "Nothing in particular"
Nevýhody: "The food service was really bad. Not happy with the meal choice."
Nevýhody: "Two hours delayed, missed my connection flight. Very poor if any communication from crew to passengers. Although I had a business ticket, I was provided with no service for two hours from boarding to take off. Not even a glass of water. Thank you Turkish Airlines."
Nevýhody: "The flight was cancelled due to weather conditions, that's fine! I never found out till I had to contact the airlines and verify of this piece of information after I heard it from news. Kayak never notified me, nor offered any alternatives!! Poor service!"
Výhody: "Service by the onboard crew was flawless. Food was excellent, and fully reclining seats in Business Class made a 13+ hour flight very comfortable."
Výhody: "Service on board was terrible..."
Výhody: "Everything was good except the airplane.. i was on row 13 and the cabinet was warm and air-condition was not working fine.. i reported this ti the flight attendant. She confirmed the temp was set to 23 C however it was definitely not less that 26C .. also it took long time to serve the hot meal although we were on rhe plane and the flight depart8 got delayed for 90 minutes due to technical problem. On the other hand, seat were comfortable and flight attendants were so nice and friendly.. also Turkish lounge and airport were good"
Výhody: "The flight was empty so got 3 seats to myself"
Nevýhody: "Vegetarian meals were not good. Its a 13 and half hour leg and when in the middle of that long journey when asked for a snack, the crew was not aware of the options that were listed on their very own menu. They ended up telling me that they must have run out of one of the options listed in the menu which they were not aware even existed 2 minutes ago."
Výhody: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Nevýhody: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."
Výhody: "Food; power outlet."
Výhody: "Good food Good service very good entertainment"
Výhody: "The food, the service and entertainment!"
Výhody: "Everything was good except the food wasn't good"
Nevýhody: "The food wasn't good"
Výhody: "A lot of food and drink, toothbrush, slippers, etc."
Nevýhody: "The first leg of my trip had a tiny, cramped airplane for 10 a plus hour flight."
Výhody: "Professional services especially from crews. Boarding/comfort/food/entertainment are good too."
Nevýhody: "It is better that the food has Turkish style."
Výhody: "that we got to check in 2 bags"
Nevýhody: "-lost one of my bags"
Výhody: "Two really good meals and there were snacks in the back for the time inbetween. The crew was friendly. This was the best flight I've experienced in a few years."
Nevýhody: "Too little leg room. My knees touched the seat in front."
Nevýhody: "This is one of the worst airlines I have flown with. I travel internationally frequently, I had used Turkish Airlines on a domestic flight in Turkey back in the 90's. It was a decent experience. So I decided to book my flight to Athens with Turkish Airlines. I bought a nonstop flight from LAX to with one and a half hour layover in Istanbul and then flying to Athens on the same day. I was assigned bulkhead seats on the way over. On the day of the Parcher at the Turkish airline counter in LAX I was informed that my seat assignments were changed. The agent could not/ would not give me a satisfactory answer as to why! During the course of the same conversation I was also informed that my layover Istanbul is not 1 1/2 hours, instead it is seven hours and I will be flying out to Athens The following day. My flight was randomly changed to a later flight without my knowledge! After a long wait at the ticketing counter, the manager switched us back to the original itinerary. Sadly it doesn't end here. The take off was about an hour and a half delayed. This was about exactly the same amount of time I had as layover Istanbul airport. I asked several flight attendants about how will Turkish Airlines will handle this delay as my connection to Athens was in jeopardy. Again not one flight attendant could give me a straight answer. Some said "well hopefully you will make it to the next flight". One said "the pilot we will make up for the lost time". I also noticed that my original bulkhead seat assignments were given to three ladies who were friends of a first class flight attendant! it was really annoying to watch the flight attendant bring them treats from the first class kitchen area. It was clear that our seats were intentionally switched as a special favor. Long story short, upon arrival we were told that the our connecting flight is at gate 501 only to find out there was no plane at the gate!! We never found out what happened to our original connection to Athens, but we ended up waiting an additional 5 1/2 hours in the airport for then next day flight. No explanation given, no accommodations provided, no apologies!"
The flight was fine. Legroom on this airline is not as good as others, but we were saved by the fact the flight was not full and two of us were able to stretch out over three seats. I found some interesting movies to watch. The TV show selection was rather lacking. Food was ok.
Výhody: "Check in was swift"
Nevýhody: "Friendlier approach from the crew"
Výhody: "The crew. The punctuality."
Výhody: "The cleanest of the airport and the airplane"
Nevýhody: "The 15 hours layover"
Výhody: "Entertainment players"
Nevýhody: "Organization when boarding (a line vs. a mob of people from all different boarding groups) not organized at all. Ended up leaving about 45 minutes late."
Nevýhody: "My wife and I were separated by six rows. Unacceptable!"
Nevýhody: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."
Výhody: "I was able to get good seats, front of the plane. 3rd row for all my flights. pretty decent leg room"
Nevýhody: "flight was delayed, 2nd Austtian flight delayed in the same day"
Nevýhody: "Terrible food and service"
Výhody: "Nothing at all."
Nevýhody: "Couldn’t get on the flight due to two cancellations of prior connecting flights. Utterly, totally unacceptable - and no explanation of why."
Výhody: "Nothing. See below."
Nevýhody: "Original flight cancelled so rebooked ojba floght five hours later - then with one hour to go until that second flight, that was cancelled as well. Totally unhelpful ground staff, who were oblivious to the fact that I had a work commitment the next day so couldn’t overnight in some random hotel at an airport to suit Austrian’s policies. Eventually routed via Lisbon which meant literally flying all night to arrive at 0600. Lufthansa and Austrian have some serious faults to correct."
Nevýhody: "You sold wrong tickets to customers. I booked economy tickets but I got Econony lite ticket. Had to pay extra charges. You shouldn’t make money to sell lower class tickets as regular."
Nevýhody: "There was a mix up about my reservation/ticket. Was stuck at the ticket desk for 45 min"
Výhody: "This is always a pleasant airline to travel with."
Nevýhody: "I felt like the airlines deliberately cheated me. I purchased a flight that was listed as "economy" , which means I am authorized one suitcase. When I got to checkout they said I had pay for the suitcase. Turns out my flight was economy 'light' flight and I had to go the Austrian airlines desk and pay euro 40 for my suitcase. Wish that would have been clear when I purchased the ticket. Also there is no clear info on what the cost is for your bag at what point in the check-in process."
Výhody: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"
Výhody: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Nevýhody: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"
Výhody: "Crew was nice enough, entertainment was ok. Food was ok. The plane was old and a little dirty."
Nevýhody: "Boarding was incredibly chaotic, seats were old and uncomfortable."
Výhody: "Polite crew. The food was much better that on any airline these days. The boarding process was organized fine."
Nevýhody: "As on any airline these days the leg space in economy class is very limited. The movie selection was OK but not great."
Výhody: "Staff was friendly, flight was on time"
Nevýhody: "No snacks on flight of 12h 20min?! I was offered the appetizer (pretzel or biscuit - both of 14gr of product inside). This is unacceptable - overseas flights have to have some snacks No eye mask or ear plugs, nor socks for economy class Outdated entertainment"
Výhody: "Austrian Airlines does it right— service, food, cleanliness. This was a really terrific experience. They even boarded efficiently, having those with seats in the back board first."
Nevýhody: "This was a great flying experience."
Výhody: "Great food. Exceptional service. Clean airplane and toilets. The whole flight was smooth and comfortable. And we were in coach!!!"
Nevýhody: "All was great."
Nevýhody: "We landed so close to our boarding time, by the time i got through everything, i was notified that i had to go to gate 11 for a special security check...it was stressful since my flight was boarding...i found it really frustrating . Ultimately the plane waited and it worked out, but the process was long and VERY stressful."
Výhody: "Not a long run."
Nevýhody: "Seats too too tight. Uncomfortably tight."
Výhody: "Short flight, no major issues."
Nevýhody: "A319 is inherently a badly arranged seating layout. Was in Row 30, no recline, and 3 full grown men for a 3 1/2 hour flight. I wonder if squeezing in the extra 3 or 6 seats is a payout when looking at people's likelihood to fly again?"
Výhody: "After flight to Vienna was cancelled, we were put on a flight to Frankfurt instead."
Nevýhody: "Kayak sent me an email at 5:16am for an 8:15 am flight titled, "Austrian Airlines flight #704 from PRG on time". It was in fact cancelled. Unfortunately we missed the connection for the flight to Newark, which we were expressly told would be held for us... they shut the door 30 seconds before we arrived, with the plane still at the gate. Had to then go to the only counter in the terminal to see if we could get on standby. Finally got on a flight to JFK instead at 5:15pm."
Výhody: "The rep was able to get me on Air France instead."
Nevýhody: "This flight switch added a layover and 8 hrs to my journey home. Not to mention I was in a middle seat on the. 11 hr leg when I had originally booked a window seat."
Výhody: "Seats were comfortable Bathrooms clean"
Nevýhody: "Crew wasn't very helpful and didn't ensure my stroller was delivered at the aircraft exit Had trouble closing my suitcase into the overhead compartment and called for assistance, to which i got reprimanded for opening it in the first place Requested coffee because i couldn't get it myself, being with a sleeping toddler, to which i got a horrible answer: the flight attendant told me i had to get it myself in the kitchenette"
Výhody: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Nevýhody: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Nevýhody: "Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient"
Výhody: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Nevýhody: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"
Nevýhody: "Nothing to dislike"
Výhody: "see above"
Nevýhody: "see above"
Výhody: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Nevýhody: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."
Výhody: "Good service, nice staff (better than US carriers easily)"
Nevýhody: "2.5 hours to receive baggage - this might be on LAX"
Výhody: "Good food, lots of movies, flight attendants friendly"
Nevýhody: "We paid to pre-book our seats and when we got on the plane they had been given away. We heard several different reasons, none of which made is feel better about the two middle seats we were told we had no choice but to take, while people who had NOT prepaid sat in our aisle seat. It was offensive to be forced to pay to select our seats in advance on a major international airline in the first place, and then to not have those honored just made it worse."
Nevýhody: "no entertainment at all Chairs are not comfortable at all no cushions to ease the back pains"
Výhody: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"
Výhody: "Expertise and effiency of the flight crew."
Nevýhody: "I have the 'Economy Class' on the tickets. At check-in at the airport we wrote "economy light" on the boarding pass and want to pay for the first baggage. I check it on the original receipt I received by e-mail, there is ECONOMY CLASS and 1st baggage free of charge, another for a fee. So I do not understand and for two tickets I have paid 2 x 30 €."
Výhody: "The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!"
Výhody: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Nevýhody: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."
Výhody: "This time it seems I had a little bit more leg room. Which makes a big difference!"
Výhody: "The pilot did a great job landing the plane in high winds."
Výhody: "Staff are pleasant and competent."
Nevýhody: "My flight to JFK on August 31 was cancelled. And they didn't provide me ticket same day. They gave ticket for next day. I had problems at work and other issues because of that."
Nevýhody: "Policies on bringing stroller differed between each trip. And they were not polite about it."
Výhody: "The coffee was excellent. It was like something from a fancy coffee shop, not a plane"
Nevýhody: "Chicken w mashed potatoes plus potato salad? Too much potato in the dinner meal"
Výhody: "Everything was great - service, food, boarding"
Nevýhody: "More food choice would be great"
Nevýhody: "The worse experience ever. I booked the flight and then they canceled it, i tried changing the dates but the website was giving me an error so i called them, after being on the phone for 2 hr some guy answered who seemed very tired and not thrilled working for LOT. Rood and not helpful, told me to try FB messenger and online changing again. Failed to get a voucher, refund or change the dates online, was still getting an error. on messenger they answered and told me i can get a voucher, i told them i don't want it and after that they stopped replying all together. good thing i got my money back by filing a dispute with my credit cart company."
Výhody: "Crew. seat. Quality of flight"
Nevýhody: "Just keep as is"
Výhody: "Good food, good service and arrived before schedule."
Výhody: "Plane was newer and the cabin crew were courteous."
Nevýhody: "Gate people suck. I can’t even describe how rude and useless they were. There was a lot of them and none of them would have been better. I also was almost bitten by a large pit bull while waiting to board the plane."
Nevýhody: "The loading was a mistake. We were bused out to the plane but they didn’t start until the planned 30 mins before departure and it took 90 mins so we left over an hour after we were scheduled. Landing so late that a number of people couldn’t make their connections"
Výhody: "Comfortable plane, good entertainment and very good food."
Nevýhody: "The plane departed over 2 hrs late and didn't make up any time during the long flight. Most of the other airlines flying long distances make up the time if the departure is delay."
Výhody: "Crew was great."
Nevýhody: "I had to switch seats due to recliner and tv remote did not work. Also, my baggage did not arrive on my flight. I had a 14 hour layover in Warsaw which was plenty of time to transfer onto plane. This also occurred on my flight to Germany."
Výhody: "The entertainment selection"
Nevýhody: "Seats were brutally uncomfortable. It was unbearably hot the entire flight because the air was not turned on. And there was not the advertised amount of legroom."
Výhody: "Generous service, excellent vegetarian meals (my special order), excellent telephone help prior to flight."
Nevýhody: "Delayed boarding time with no information or updates provided, touch screen didn't work, bathrooms dirty toward end if flight."
Výhody: "There was in-flight entertainment. It was the cheapest flight."
Nevýhody: "The food was the worst I have had in over 10 years on EU-Asia flights. They missed two connections, causing over 11 hours of delay, and arrived at a different airport. We spent 4 hours dealing with visa procedures and luggage rechecking in Beijing without staff assistance. Deplorable."
Nevýhody: "Luggage did not arrive in Los Angeles. Representatives not sympathetic. Luggage was delivered to my home the following day. I will probably not use this airline again."
Výhody: "Crew provided great service."
Nevýhody: "Seat was not stable and moved when I moved. In the toilet the cover of toilet was falling down constantly. There was no Wifi (what is now quite ussual)"
Nevýhody: "Boarding went chaotic and slow, this resulted in at least a half hour delay. People were allowed to bring to nuch hand luggage into the cabin."
Výhody: "the crew was really amazing!"
Nevýhody: "Boarding process was terrible, delayed for 3 hours and I have missed my other flight"
Výhody: "OK small flight to warsaw from Lviv"
Nevýhody: "Took too long the flight to Lviv and my luggage never made it on the flight."
Výhody: "Overall it was a good flight"
Nevýhody: "Some passengers arrive late 1 hour from transfer flight, but meantime plane crew started relocating existing passengers to different seats without checking if the seat is available, and that created chaos."
Nevýhody: "Food and not enough entertainment"
Výhody: "It took me to Warsaw"
Nevýhody: "Very small, uncomfortable plane. Late."
Výhody: "All in all, the seats had more legroom than I expected for economy. Much more than American airlines (AA, United, Delta). Love the direct flight as it saves so much time."
Nevýhody: "This was the 4th flight I have taken between LAX and Warsaw...but was the first time that there were no beer nor wine available in between meal services. On a 12-13 hour flight, this was a definite disappointment compared to my other experiences on LOT. The other concern was there were only two meals, and no snack service on a very long flight. This again stood out in contrast to the previous flights I have taken on LOT."
Výhody: "Business Class on LOT Flight No. 21 from Warsaw to Los Angeles is excellent! The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a beautiful plane and the Business Class seats are very comfortable. The food was pretty good and the flight attendants were extremely nice!"
Nevýhody: "There was a two and a half hour delay for technical problems for our flight from Warsaw to Los Angeles on Tuesday July 24, 2018. There had been a two-hour delay for my flight in from Warsaw to Moscow, also for technical problems, on Friday July 13, 2018. Obviously, LOT needs to insure its planes are safe, but it needs to do so sufficiently in advance of take-off so that its passengers are not inconvenienced by lengthy delays."
Výhody: "Very friendly crew member."
Nevýhody: "If you book a afternoon flight with LOT, you should be aware your plan will mostly arrive late"
Výhody: "Not much."
Nevýhody: "This is about as budget as you can get. Entertainment systems didn’t work, drinks were warm. Food was mediocre. Bathroom doors didn’t work, and the toilet seat wouldn’t stay up while using it! Yuck! Had to shuttle EVERYWHERE between flights, before and after. Crew was not attentive, and not so friendly either. Only good note was the young lady who checked our bags in Warsaw and helped get our seats together (after the airline messed the seat assignment up in the first place). Ugh. Worst airline I’ve been on."
Výhody: "The multilingual, very professional crew is one of the best we've traveled with. All of them are willing to help, accommodate, which was extremely important for us due to my husband's medical issues. Much obliged."
Výhody: "Good food and service."
Nevýhody: "Tv is very difficult to see at that distance. Poor choices of films."
Výhody: "Flight on time... arrived on time.... food was great...."
Výhody: "In Frankfurt it went through Lufthansa and the extra suitcase costed me $40 more as I’ve been told on the LOT website. Paid €107 where the web page of lot said $75"
Nevýhody: "After check in luggage I had to wait one hour to take care of the luggage price so I get my tickets. All this should have been do e before without going to different counter. Also I didn’t liked that I had to check in on the automated machine."
Výhody: "With expectations set record low by flying United Airlines this was pleasantly neutral."
Nevýhody: "Limited beverage choice"
Výhody: "I can't give any review, because I cancelled my flight."
Výhody: "No water was served between the first and last meal. Some people were dehydrated and had developed a headache. One person have been calling the flight attendant five times and no one responded. Very sad."
Výhody: "I am not sure where to start from but each lot employee I talk with had poor English and not the tinyest willing to help just to move , I had a flight back from cezh republic to JFK with a stop in Warsaw When I got to the front desk in the air port to print my ticket the Liady ( work at Sation 236 ) was very rude and anti costumer service she print me only my first fly ticket and when I ask why she " I don't know " I said ok so when u get there you know which get I go or where I will print the other ticket she say I don't know Ok and then I ask her can u check if it a room I. My flight from Warsaw to JFK in business it this moment she tell me I can switch sit and ask me to go I was shocked but this was only the bigining when I got to Warsaw I ask in the gate counter where should I go to print my ticket after I try to explain him 10 times what I mean ( he didn't speak English at all ) he told me to go pass the passport check and in gate 21 they will print it to me I fly a lot so I ask him if he sure becuse I am petty sure I will need my ticket the guy at the desk repeat imhim self so I want and waited 25-30 min in the line so the police officer in the passport check will tell me I need to go print my ticket So after the officer from the passport desk call someone he direct me to go to hate 26 and there they will print my ticket I want them and again wait for 15 min to print my ticket ( it was only me this is the sad thing I don't know what tool 15 min to print a ticket ) and it amazing how unsocial and 0 in customer service the lot polish employees I meet And this is without talking about the delay in my coming flight for 2-3 hrs ( a delay it something that happen a lot yes but the way they handled it again 0 in costumer service )"
Nevýhody: "The flight attendant was very nice and professional but it was business class so u can't really compare I will definitely will not recommend ppl to fly with them"
Výhody: "Price of tickiet"
Nevýhody: "I travel internationally regularly on business. Lot Airlines was hands down the worst airline I have ever flown with. They charged me twice for the same exact tickets and then would not refund me the entire fare. The deducted $300 to process back the credit. Personnel, at both the airport and in flight, were curt, uncommodating and lacked customer service. On my return flight from Warsaw there was a large, disruptive group with a number of unruly children & airline staff did nothing to address the children running across seats, screaming and wreaking havoc for over 8 hours. Passengers could not sleep & the noise was unbearable."
Nevýhody: "No free alcohol"
Výhody: "From check-in to boarding went as smooth as possible. 5 star service."
Výhody: "Great cabin crew, everything on time, love 787 Dreamliner on long flights. Good food"
Nevýhody: "Slow and hectic boarding in Warsaw"
Výhody: "Flight was on time, the crew was very pleasant. No complaints"
Výhody: "Decent new airplane. Nothing else really stands out"
Nevýhody: "Economy class is not as comfy as Turkish. Food is decent, not good. No free beer :'( Too few movies and some equipment doesn't function well"
Výhody: "I was boarded very professionally. I have a heart condition that requires medication. I explained this to the gate agent to request assistance in boarding and they complied with my request."
Nevýhody: "LOT is not an airline that impressed me in any way. When I flew from Los Angeles to Warsaw, my bag was weighed, and I was told it was over limit. This, in spite of the fact that I weighed this bag on a calibrated scale prior to entering the airport, and my luggage was 5 pounds BELOW the limit. This seemed a blatant attempt to gain additional money from me, because I know the bag was not overweight. The food selections were average at best. Leaving Warsaw traveling to Los Angeles, we left almost an hour past our original scheduled departure do to the need to obtain additional supplies. On my next trip to Europe, I will look for alternate flight providers."
Výhody: "It was very pleasant flight"
Nevýhody: "Crew atmosphere"
Výhody: "I liked the new modern Dreamliner, the in-flight food, the entertainment, and the comfort."
Nevýhody: "I was I could have stayed on vacation longer."
Výhody: "I got to Warsaw safely."
Nevýhody: "The flight was delayed 3 hours."
Výhody: "On time"
Nevýhody: "Baggage charge and hot plane"
Nevýhody: "Check in staff was unprofessional and extremely rude."
Výhody: "I like everything, except toilets."
Nevýhody: "Toilets were too dirty. Crew must clean them continuously during the fly. But they didn't. They was unhappy about this duty. When we landed there were toilet paper on the floor even outside the toilets."
Finnair and the country of Finland are vegan friendly! My daughter enjoyed her meals! Thank you
Výhody: "Crew was attentive - the service from SJC is much better than SFO - less crowded etc. New 787 and Premium Econ is great."
Výhody: "Quick access to the airport and gates"
Nevýhody: "Free food on board"
Výhody: "Crew was great given the circumstances that British Airways had significant systems issue that caused significant delay and missing of connecting flight"
Nevýhody: "Trip was a disaster"
Nevýhody: "Free snack and tea and coffee"
Nevýhody: "Our baby has broken leg with plaster cast and Cathay didn’t deliver our stroller to Hongkong so we had to carry him on the hands whole afternoon...this was unpleasant experience...also when we arrived from HongKong to Denpasar Bali we found that one of our suitcases was damaged broken :/"
Výhody: "The air hostesses were first class. Pleasant, efficient and professional."
Nevýhody: "The tv selections. Could have had more variety"
Nevýhody: "flight was delayed and we never got any information by the pilots or crew to let us know that we were delayed and no information on the new arrival time. Almost lost my connection at LAX"
Nevýhody: "The cabin was extremely hot for almost the entire flight. I had my pants rolled up to try to stop sweating. I asked for some ice water to help cool down and although promised, it never arrived. I was not able to sleep as a result."
Nevýhody: "3 canceled flights and lost luggage.... bad communication by employers and absolutely no help ... we were sent all over the airport several times to the wrong places and felt that no body cared in this process .... I would like compensation and something to make this right ... we also lost our upgraded seats I lpaid for and the vegan meals we ordered in advance"
Výhody: "The flight crew was amazing. The entertainment system was great"
Nevýhody: "Landed almost an hour late. Food was HORRIBLE. worst pasta of my life. The crew while kind, we busy chatting in the galley most of the flight. Never came around (besides the initial drink cart and the meal) to offer water or check on passengers. They forced me to close the window while we were flying and I bought a window seat so i could look out. The boarding process was very slow and disembarking took ages. Problems with loading the baggage led to an issue at baggage claim where they were stuck."
Výhody: "Seat was comfortable"
Nevýhody: "Crew. Crew was very rude. I understand their day was difficult due to the delay, but it made it worse for passengers, many of whom missed or were about to miss connections"
Výhody: "Flight was fine, staff friendly and caring"
Nevýhody: "Transfer in Heathrow - they dont return your gate checked stroller at gate, they dont have loaners, lines are long and distances huge and with no stroller this is super tiring They dont even give free water or cold drinks on this flight and we were lare late due to air traffic at Heathrow"
Výhody: "We waited an hour to board with a wheelchair and were the last on and I had to push. Gate personnel were inattentive and dismissive."
Nevýhody: "Food was pretty mediocre"
Výhody: "Entertainment was adequate."
Nevýhody: "The plane was freezing for 11 hours. Flight attendant said it would be adjusted but it never was. We were against a wall and seats did not recline. Very little room."
Výhody: "The boarding and crew were fine."
Nevýhody: "I did not like the lack of complementary coffee or other drink for a two hour flight, especially at that time of the morning. Coffee was available, but only for a price, as were other food items. This was unexpected and certainly not appreciated."
Výhody: "On-flight entertainment. Great selection of movies, TV, music. Timely boarding and early arrival."
Nevýhody: "The flight attendant who served me apparently doesn't like Americans. She was very cold to me although I was as polite (or even more so) than others. When I handed her used service items she snatched them out of my hands."
Výhody: "Comfortable seats, good selection of food/drinks from the menu and courteous staff"
Výhody: "My luggage made it to LA"
Nevýhody: "The food quality was poor and the service left a lot to be desired. I asked for some water and she told me she’d be back. I waited almost an hour, then called and no one came. When I called on the second time she came with a cup half full and seemed irritated. I didn’t even bother asking for more water. They didn’t let me check in early enough to request roomier seats, even if we’d have to pay more given that my husband has knee surgery and needed the extra room. When I was finally able to ask, they were fully booked."
Nevýhody: "Nothing wrong"
Výhody: "Very little."
Nevýhody: "Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry."
Výhody: "Great crew!"
Nevýhody: "Late catering delayed flight. Fix ground services."
Výhody: "The chicken and cheese risotto meal was excellent. One of our flight attendants, Sharon, stood out from the others with her service and friendliness, however all crew was good. Airbus A380 was the smoothest flight I've ever been on."
Nevýhody: "The pepperoni pizza wrap snack was not good."
Výhody: "smooth flight"
Nevýhody: "no dairy free food options"
Výhody: "The crew was great! Very friendly and helpful."
Výhody: "I loved the side compartment next to my seat in the upper deck of the airbus. This was an amazing airplane to fly in and I hope someday to afford the opportunity to experience First class. The cabin crew was very attentive and our attendant, in particular, was helpful. He made sure that we had our special meal and the whole staff was very attentive."
Nevýhody: "I added a quick trip to Austria while I was in Europe and timed it so I would fly back to London and then back to LA on the same day. London had a huge wind storm on 10/21 so my flight from Austria landed 1 hour late, with that I missed my London-LAX flight on BA (that I purchased via Kayak). The BA agents tried to help me but were not able to use my Kayak ticket to re-book me or at least recover some of my investment. There was no phone number provided on my reservation and after an hour of trying to help me, they said I have to buy a brand new ticket. The cost for my return and my seat reservation both were lost and my new ticket was $1,600 (and I had to spend the night in a hotel at Heathrow as at that point all US flights left for the day). I usually book directly with the airlines because I want to avoid situations like this, so it is too bad that the one time I come to Kayak I end up having to buy a new ticket that was twice as expensive as the original one. Ina Watkins firstname.lastname@example.org 646-594-3593"
Výhody: "Flight on time"
Výhody: "Plane was comfortable. Seats were not bad. Spent most of the flight asleep."
Nevýhody: "Part was a code share with AA. When BA transfered the data to AA, they lost the seat assignments which I found out about at the last minute and ended up spending almost $400 to get acceptable seats. Could not get boarding passes at our origin in Rome and had to wait in line at LHR. Boarding seemed very disorganized."
Nevýhody: "Staff where very rude. I asked if me and my partner could move as the person in front had there seat back therefore my knees got damaged and grazed they simply said we can't move you and left I asked a number of times I was ignored"
Výhody: "Excellent service and the crew was very friendly"
Výhody: "As always, a great flight."
Nevýhody: "Nothing I can think of."
Výhody: "In flight entertainment, food and everyone was great!"
Nevýhody: "No issues"
Výhody: "Staff was exceptional."
Nevýhody: "First a large number of the flight was flagged for special screening which meant that they had to do additional procedures and were very understaffed as many of us talking near 100 people had to stay behind and wait for over an hour as three employees screened us in detail. This while the rest of the plane was already boarded. Thus the flight left late and arrived very late to LAX. Secondly the refrigeration on board for food was broken thus spoilong the food so we only received one meal on an 11 hour flight which we were starving and not what we paid for during this flight. They did offer snacks but when not having a full meal as paid for it is a huge let down. Thirdly why is Wi-Fi not offered on this flight. Due to the late departure and late arrival we missed my connection to TUS and was not able to make calls or email during the flight. Not acceptable. Very unhappy and will never be flying with British Airways again. I WILL ALSO NEVER LET FRIENDS AND FAMILY FLY WITH THEM. An airline as prestigious as BA needs to work better at ensuring the minimum on offering wait we the customer pays for and this did not happen. Staff was amazing and very friendly but we were very dejected and felt that your brand suffered a lot with this experience. I do hope to hear from airline about this incident as my wife and I travel constantly."
Výhody: "The plane"
Nevýhody: "The crew was rude and almost didn't seem like they wanted to be there especially this one person called Byron."
Nevýhody: "Please fix the boarding process."
Výhody: "Arrived 30 minutes late after problem at gate with the Jetway not retracting. Ground staff were pleasant. In-flight staff were friendly and helpful. Food was okay."
Nevýhody: "Having to pay to select your seats is bargain carrier behavior. My family of four had to pay nearly $400 extra to select our seats in advance instead of having them assigned to selecting them the day of the flight. Seats were cramped and not too comfortable. I flew Air France on a previous trip to Europe and it was much more comfortable seating. The in-flight entertainment system kept freezing up and had to be reset multiple times. The touch screen (which is the method of navigation through the system) did not work. On a 5 hour flight that would be an inconvenience - on an 11 hour flight it is a bit more of a problem."
Výhody: "Landed ahead of schedule"
Nevýhody: "Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight"
Výhody: "Decent leg room, crew and entertainment."
Nevýhody: "Upon landing late in London from Rome there was no one to bring the walkway to the plane so had to wait on the plane when we were already behind schedule on a tight connection. THEN having to go through second security check in London when changing planes and security in terminal C was closed so had to transfer to terminal B for security and back to C to catch flight barely making it! Luggage did not make connection. Promised it will be delivered today."
Výhody: "Flight crew is the most helpful and genuine I've experienced of all carriers. I've had bad experiences with Lufthansa, United, American, and Delta. Everything we asked of BA was taken care of quickly and they truly seemed to care more. They are especially attentive to children. The A320 storage space overhead is huge and seemed to have room to spare with a fully booked flight."
Nevýhody: "Seats are so uncomfortable for people 6 foot tall and above. Why can't they make a seat that adjusts for taller people."
Výhody: "Regardless of many flights, this was my first experience with BA on transatlantic flights. And I was pleasantly surprised. Very well mannered crew, politeness, help, all... Food was great as well. Overall great first impression and definitely will fly again with BA."
Nevýhody: "In general, it was ok, can't complain."
Nevýhody: "We flew with BA from Prague via Heathrow to San Diego on May 30 just day after they started operating normally after computer glitch. From Prague we were on time, When boarding in London started we were told to sit down again claiming Boeing 777 had equipment problem and they were waiting for parts to fix it. Our departure was delayed by 1 hour. Seats in economy class are really cramped so when seats are declined person behind can not eat without banging head into the back rest. Difficult to get in and out of seat as well. Arm rests do not come all the way up so one has to squat to avoid being hit by arm rest. Not very pleasant on 11 hour long flight. Joe"
Nevýhody: "That the flight was delayed and we had to run to make our connection. The flight attendant reassured us that we were making up the lost time in the air and there was going to be no issues."
Výhody: "Entertainment selection."
Nevýhody: "The air was stale. No circulation. It made me sick."
Výhody: "Across to entertainment helped pass the time"
Nevýhody: "On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible"
Výhody: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Výhody: "Boarding went smoothly."
Nevýhody: "the seats are horrible! I expected more comfort on an airbus. there was less room on the international flight than on domestic flights on other carriers!"
Výhody: "I liked the extra compartment and arm rest by the window seat."
Nevýhody: "The crew wasn't too observant. I had my blinker button on for 40 minutes because I realized I was never given a headphone to watch tv. As I patiently waited, I saw the flight attendants in the back doing nothing but chatting. So I tried clicking again in hopes they would head and come to assist me. But nothing. So I had to hail one over for headphones. They also kept the curtains open the entire flight even though people were trying to sleep. I had to put a jacket over my face to block the light and so did the person sitting next to me."
Nevýhody: "Online check in was not accessible."
Nevýhody: "Entertainment system issues throughout the entire aircraft. The audio jacks in my entire row were inoperable."
Nevýhody: "They didn't offer any compliment food, no water to wash hands in bathroom (had to ask for sanitizer), staff seemed grumpy"
Výhody: "No problems on the flight. Attendants were nice."
Nevýhody: "It was unusual that we had to go through another security station when changing planes. The home made jam I transported from Paris made it through the Paris security, but was confiscated by the American security. It made my trip home upsetting."
Výhody: "I like that the pilot to managed to take off in the snowy conditions and arrived our destination LA our time. The crew was amicable. That was it really."
Nevýhody: "I felt the plane was not very comfortable for a 5 1/2hr flight. I will not fly this plane never on transatlantic it just not cozy like big airbus or b777. Air Canada should invest in big planes if it want to cash out on the passengers connecting their pacific flights."
Výhody: "Not much"
Nevýhody: "Lady at check in, Helen, at Pearson was TERRIBLE. No compassion for us travelling with a 2 month old baby, and then booked our seats with united in separate locations with no bassinet. I will never use air Canada Again."
Výhody: "I had an episode of anxiety over very minor turbulence which I sometimes get and both ladies who happened to be on duty were very reassuring and sympathetic to me. I had my 6 year old daughter also on the plane who is not anxious at all, so I was able to speak to one of the staff in French so as not to transfer my anxiety to my daughter who doesn't understand French. This was great. Over half way through the flight they gave me some earphones and suggested I watch a movie. This helped so much."
Výhody: "time and straight flight"
Nevýhody: "on time is Key"
Výhody: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."
Nevýhody: "Seats extremely narrow and back support non-existent."
Nevýhody: "In-seat entertainment - screen not working"
Výhody: "I liked the fact that they provided beverages and food."
Nevýhody: "I hated how there was NO entertainment. Honestly on a 12 + hour flight this was a bit ridiculous. No tv, or movies... no screen on the seat at all. Not even a big one for everyone to enjoy! It was horrible... The seats were so cramped and the staff seemed a bit unprofessional and sloppy looking. The food was pretty bad as well. I've had my fair share amount of flights and honestly this was probably the worse one i've gone on with the amount of hours it took to get to our destination. I wouldn't have mind too much if there was no entertainment on a 2 or 3 hour flight..."
Výhody: "A woman in Toronto at the customs area for air Canada helped us get seats when we didn't realize we were on standby. She was very kind and helpful!"
Nevýhody: "Air Canada did everything wrong except for the actual flying of planes. Repeated delays and cancellations with NO organization or communication to the passengers. I made it to my final destination 24 hours later than original itinerary, almost all of which was spent in airport lines. My bag didn't arrive until 5 days later...on the wrong porch."
Výhody: "Late departure due to an incompetent airport crew (the guys who fuel the plane) . The pilot keep us well informed about the delay. Since we left Vancouver late, we arrived late and had to sit on the runway for 30 minutes until we could get a gate at LAX. Again the pilot keep us informed and apologized for the inconvenience, The staff was very friendly."
Výhody: "on-board service"
Nevýhody: "Late departures (about 30 minutes each way) with corresponding late arrivals. On the flight LAX to Vancouver due to late arrival of the plane, on the return flight supposedly because of a delay in loading luggage (the flight was fully boarded for 30+minutes before loading was completed). The late arrival in Los Angeles led to further delay as there was no available gate to accept us so we disembarked 50+minutes after the scheduled time."
Výhody: "That even though there is a delay, we still made it around the same time"
Nevýhody: "That there was a delay in the first place"
Výhody: "Good leg room in coach"
Nevýhody: "Flight was late leaving, the boarding process was messed up and could not understand the person doing the announcements (was speaking too fast)..."
Výhody: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Nevýhody: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Výhody: "The flight itself was good. Service at the end of the flight was the worst ever."
Nevýhody: "They got in late to lax. Made no apparent effort to get us on alternative airlines or flights. I was rebooked on a flight 24 hours out No help finding hotels, meals or even terminal. It was a codeshare with united but neither would united help in any way because it was booked through air Canada."
Výhody: "No snacks with drinks"
Výhody: "friendly pilot"
Nevýhody: "Delayed 25 minutes, and threatened to fly without 15 passengers due to strong headwinds and need to reduce weight. Never heard that one before."
Nevýhody: "After making if through a very busy customs and security line i make it to my gate only to find out that they lost my bag and they can't let me on my flight. I have been waiting in line for 3 hours to know what they are going to do to fix it and i'm still waiting.... i have flown with them before and it was fine but this is just ridiculous."
Výhody: "waiting on the plane for hours after we arrived to LA wasn't to great. Also it was frustrating to watch the plane get delayed over and over again, the food wasn't too good, the seats felt like cardboard and it was too packed in the plane...but other then that, it was spectacular"
Výhody: "the seat beside me was open"
Nevýhody: "they made us rush through customs while yellig at us nd being very condescending then we waited an hour to board because the airport door wouldn't open for the crew"
Výhody: "The plane was on time, boarding was orderly and smooth, service was excellent, and they did a good job on the weather. As a pilot, I would rate it an all around excellent flight."
Výhody: "Getting me from point A to point B in one piece is most important, so top marks there."
Nevýhody: "- was told to switch gates twice for the same flight (while lugging my stuff along with me) - both flights were late - flight tracker didn't work from LAX to Vancouver - just a note: on flight from Vancouver to LAX, passenger behind us was talking 5X louder then literally anyone else on the plane. I bought headphones just to drown out his life story."
Nevýhody: "Air Canada failed to transfer my bag from flight 1 to connecting flight 2. This not only happened to me but to other people traveling on the same connecting flight as well. My bag was delivered later then the promised time, it was also returned damaged. It is now almost one week since I have taken my flight and I am unable to process a claim because they have not updated my file via their Bag Tracer program. It is clear that they still have a lot of work to do to be considered a real commercial air line company"
Nevýhody: "Had to pay for seat assignments when reservation made or no seat reservations. Not true on all airlines. Delta let us pick seats for free when the reservation was made. Husband had wanted a window seat and ended up with a middle seat. No free snacks just drinks"
Nevýhody: "The port for the earphones didn't work 100% You had to jiggle it to get it to work"
Výhody: "Everything was fine"
Nevýhody: "J have never seen before the company charge for food on international flights"
Výhody: "Entertainment on this flight was comparatively better than the flight we took from LAX to Toronto...Snacks was also better on this flight than the LAX to Toronto flight which really confuses me as to why?"
Nevýhody: "The wait time though for our flight was 6 hours and there were 2 or 3 other earlier flights to LAX that day.."
Výhody: "Besides a french men close to us that doesnt know what is a deodorent , everything was fine for the travel : ontime, friendly staff, no problem at all. Always recommend air canada for its quality standard. Complimentary drinks ok"
Nevýhody: "Pay-to-eat only, no little crackers like before , come on!"
Výhody: "They were quick to bring meals and snacks. Friendly and accommodating flight crew."
Nevýhody: "For a 9 hour flight, I would have preferred a heads up that there is no in-flight entertainment and you need to have a charged device of your own with the Air Canada app pre-installed. And if you didn't get that memo and you have an Apple device, you're out of luck. Otherwise you can rent an iPad for $10. The chairs were thin and flimsy making it difficult to sleep. And unfortunately we got a "window seat" that did not have a window. It was very disappointing."
Výhody: "I liked how we got there safely."
Nevýhody: "I did not like the fact I was cramped."
Výhody: "The flight was pretty good. The flight attendants were very nice. The seats are pretty roomy and Im about 6'3. The seat backs have a nice screen and a usb port as well as a standard electrical plug."
Nevýhody: "Checking in was terrible there and back. On the way to vancouver we showed up 2 hours early but the computers went out about 20 minutes after we arrived and stayed off till after our flight. No apologies, no responsibilities taken. That day was part of our small vacation. We got put on standby for the next flight 7 hours later. My family layed around the terminal without 100% surety that we'd get the next flight. We did but they split us up. I switched seats with someone and we all sat in the very rear seat of the plane, which was hard on my long legs and just added to a terrible experience. Ruined a whole day of vacation. Coming back the check in was just rudeness. A stark difference from the flight itself."
Nevýhody: "my luggage and my baby's car seat was delayed. I arrived at 10 pm and my luggage and baby's car seat was missing. I was told they will deliverer it to me the next day, but I have not received my stuff now its been two days"
Výhody: "All was good as it was not a Rouge plane."
Nevýhody: "Needed a bandaid as got a paper cut but it took forever for the stewardess to get me one.Had to remind her again."
Nevýhody: "From LA to Toronto & Montreal back to LA, was a 4-6 hr flight where they don't feed you or give you blankets. When I asked why blankets are not available, the crew said, "because that's all what we'll be doing is handing out blanket." The crew should realize that providing comfort for their passengers is a huge part of their service they should provide. This was my first time flying with air canada and I was very disappointed. Air Canada will definitely not be on my top airlines to fly next time."
Výhody: "Extra care for passengers"
Výhody: "The staff at Toronto were very professional"
Nevýhody: "We have not received our luggage. We have been told it was given to transportation company and nothing yet. Called back and told company did not have drivers to deliver! We were assured luggage would be with us on the next day flight after being put up by airline."
Výhody: "Arriving and getting off the plane."
Nevýhody: "They boarded and the moment everyone was seated, de-borded to change planes, resulting in a 2 hour delay. The crew was inattentive taking and delivering drink orders, which took an astounding length of time after payment, about 1 hour."
Výhody: "Clean aircraft."
Nevýhody: "Seats being marked @ $ 16 and $42 upto 24 hours before flight"
Výhody: "great seats much roomier than other airlines"
Výhody: "Upgraded unexpectedly"
Nevýhody: "Got delayed for almost 2 hours. Unacceptable"
Výhody: "On time. Clean. Efficient"
Výhody: "Staff were great"
Nevýhody: "Air conditioning malfunctioning until the plane took off meant that the cabin was extremely hot and humid. My headphone jack didn't work so I couldn't even watch a movie. Otherwise everything was fine"
Výhody: "We arrived nearly on time."
Nevýhody: "They changed our gate three times and boarding was inefficient (it took them almost an hour to load a small plane) and led to a late takeoff. The customs process was ridiculous. Crew did not seem to care. No food was provided on a 6 hour flight that boarded at 6pm. Most people would not have thought that they needed to eat dinner before the flight. You had the option of purchasing snacks. The people in the rear of the plan did not receive the honor of buying snacks (or even getting a cup of water) until 3 or 4 hours into the flight. Uncomfortable seats. Avoid Air Canada until they get their act together or they lower their prices to reflect their new status as a discount airline."
Výhody: "Safe and on time. I liked the opportunity to check in my carry on luggage."
Nevýhody: "TV's did not work and the flight attendant bumped into me every time she walked down the aisle. Earphone plugs did not function properly. Outlet to charge my phone was missing."
