For the price I paid I didn’t expect anything more.
knowing beforehand which terminal at SFO is pretty critical. there was no pre check-in available online thru air canada, and googling just led to three different answers as to terminal. thankfully my cabby somehow knew what was up
Was a bit late but arrived nearly on the. Overall a good experience
Business class seats provide quite good privacy - good for when traveling alone
優點： "Air Canada crews continue to be friendly, polite and proactive, and definitely earn their best-in-North-America ranking."
缺點： "I haven't flown AC in a while, but I remember this flight having dinner service and cookies + ice cream. While the printed menus themselves have improved, I would have preferred dinner service over breakfast especially as those with connecting flights get another breakfast no matter how short."
優點： "Everything was great. From food to entertainment was great."
優點： "Crew was amazing and flight was excellent"
優點： "Crew is very friendly and helpful. Leg space is bigger than other flights."
缺點： "Food is not as good as before. I could smell the restroom from my seat (41H). Hopefully Air Canada flights can depart and arrive on time."
優點： "Surprised with an upgrade to premium economy. Food and service was good. Entertainment system was good and worked well."
缺點： "Some folks should not be allowed on airplanes...for some reason this flight had more than its fair share of ignorant, slovenly passengers."
優點： "Liked legroom in the emergency row and the quality of the new entertainment system."
優點： "ok, seating but good movies"
缺點： "not enough space for luggage"
缺點： "flight cancelled. had to go down to ticketing. rebooked given a $10 food voucher and told we would get a hotel room when we got to Toronto since we were getting in real late because of the delay"
優點： "They did feed us and provided cover and small pillow"
缺點： "every thing including service is minimum."
優點： "Better than expected"
優點： "Te tightest seat ever, and I'am 75 Fair treatment by the crew Seatwise am not looking forward yo my return in a month Food os fair"
缺點： "Steward. & meals"
優點： "Everything you would expect for a budget flight. Comfortable seats with a decent amount of leg room. Quick boarding time and landed on time."
缺點： "Entertainment only available for purchase with a tablet rental. Corners of the floor were a little dirty."
缺點： "We were delayed for several hours. I could’ve and should’ve driven to Toronto because I would’ve made it there a lot quicker. The crew members were rude and clearly unhappy to be working. None of them were accommodating. It was a very unpleasant way to start my trip."
優點： "Seats were comfortable. Food was OK."
缺點： "Our connecting flight was pushed to the following day and then we sat for an hour while the plane was deiced. We could have been told a later departure time. While we were not traveling further, those making connections again missed their flights. If they would only own up to the missed connections while still on the ground, alternate plans could be made. Not part of their business model."
缺點： "Flight was delayed for 3 and half hours."
缺點： "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."
優點： "We had a trip planned for Las Vegas on the Wednesday following the sad and tragic shooting at the Mandalay Bay hotel. We were planning to be at the Luxor next door. Because of this proximity to the horrible scene we could not see completing this trip. The Air Canada staff understood and accommodated our need change plans. They arranged for us to fly directly home rather than to our planned stop in Las Vegas."
缺點： "Didn't board as I missed the connection."
缺點： "No vegetarian options"
缺點： "The way I was treated upon my landing in Toronto. When I missed my flight I had to stay at the airport from 10:30pm until 9:30am and there was nothing offered. No place to sleep or any compensation for food. I spoke with others that had food vouchers and others got toiletries. I'm not impressed."
優點： "Great timing of flights to arrive in afternoon. Also liked flying on the 787. Service was great as there was always someone checking to see that you were comfortable."
優點： "Food, service, seat (Business class), aircraft"
缺點： "No internet connection"
優點： "Their sympathy for our atrocious wait was, free pop and water, and some pretzels. $30 meal vouchers at the limited options gate area, which could only be used towards a meal (really? no where else?). Here's a were sorry email and a discount on your next flight with us. I have yet to see how much the significant cost for that discount but my expectations of Air Canada are very low."
缺點： "That delay was horrendous, I spent 10 hours at an airport. I woke up so god damn early to get there because of news spreading the worries of people waiting at customs immigration to the U.S. it only took us 40min to get through and the flight delay notice was given an hour and a half before departure. We couldn't even sleep on any benches because they were all designed for individuals to sit. It wasn't until our gate location moved to the end of that area was there any carpeted floor space to sleep on. On the flight, economy seating was very tight with limited leg room, and best of all our seats had no window, literally every other row in our section had a window. Air Canada handled this stressful event very poorly, once they figured out bringing a new air craft hours later, and everyone moved to the new gate area, all the attendants had left from their gate post until 40min before the flight which was hours later."
缺點： "I booked this flight a couple months ago to find no seat assignment which should be booked at Chechen but was not. Then I was given the back seat against the wall which does not recline. There were standby people on the flight who got much better seating than I. I seemed to get the last consideration. I am treated much better on other airlines with much less early booking. also later after take of it was made known to me there were empty seats further up in the cabin. When I email Air Canada they said they would get back to me within 30 days about my concerns."
優點： "The young kids really enjoyed the multi-player video games that were offered on the plane. The windows were really cool too! The amount of light/color coming from the windows were adjustable with the press of a button. It was the first flight for the younger kids, and they loved it!"
優點： "Nice to see some older flight crew members."
缺點： "First meal was frozen. Bread, veggies and brownie cake were frozen while the chicken and rice wasn't appetizing. Flight crew should be more aware of the first row seats when pushing their food carts down and now bumping into passengers tvset."
優點： "There was good food and entertainment"
缺點： "I'd like better vegetarian options for food though"
缺點： "I don't have any complain about the flight. It was average or a little above average. I just couldn't sleep well probably because the head rest is too high or what. But I'm 5 feet 7. The pillow can be improved as well (firmer)."
優點： "Difficult to find employees in the Toronto airport. Security needed to help me locate someone after my plane was delayed causing me to miss my connection. On the way back had a delay again lucky if was my final leg."
優點： "I've always had adequate flights with AC. No one goes over and beyond, but everything is as you would expect. A smooth flight."
缺點： "I could not travel due to the fact that Im pregnant and it is of really high risk and the airline did not help me. I lost my money and could not even get a credit to travel later."
缺點： "They changed our chosen seats so we had to sit in the middle. No complimentary food or snacks served on a 5 hour flight. It would have been good to know that ahead of time so we could have brought something to eat for lunch."
優點： "I can't say there is much in the way of customer service provided during this entire flight."
缺點： "They wouldn't let us upgrade even though there is tons of empty seats in first class, and the flight crew wouldn't even make eye contact or answer call lights the entire flight! Was one of my worst experiences with Air Canada."
優點： "The cost is to high especially not coming with a meal"
優點： "All was well. Thanks"
優點： "I thought the overall service was very good. I like how well the crew communicated with the passengers and how smoothly everything went."
缺點： "The food (dinner: chicken with rice, breakfast: eggs) was ok, maybe even a little yummy, but could've been better (eggs where a bit too wet). I also felt like the movie selection was rather disappointing. A lot of not so great hollywood blockbusters."
優點： "the staff was wonderful"
缺點： "no entertainment on flight 10 hours bored to death"
優點： "Food was not included in a 5 1/2 hour flight. Which it should be."
缺點： "Entertainment system did not work. No free snacks."
優點： "The meals provided from London to Montreal were delicious! Best food I've had on a plane before."
缺點： "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."
No headphones to watch movies on a 6h flight
No one at the counter could help me fill out the forms to enter Taiwan. I got errors but the were in Chinese! Somehow I managed to get it done after spending about 2 hours asking for help! And the ticketing agent had the nerve to tell me to get back inline!!
優點： "Why put a 6ft plus 200lb person between two smaller strangers. By far the worst part"
缺點： "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"
優點： "Quick boarding, no delays."
缺點： "The control for the entertainment system is strangely located on the armrest, so the person next to me was constantly changing my system's volume and channels by simply using the armrest."
缺點： "This was a red-eye from Costa Rica to Chicago. I sat in the very back row, so I really felt the turbulence back there. But I had no chance of sleeping through it because my seat would not lean back; in fact it was so far upright that I was almost leaning forward. I can normally sleep on any flight but this was like sitting in a tiny cage designed to prevent me from finding any remotely comfortable position or getting any rest at all. They should not be allowed to sell a seat like this."
缺點： "Where should I begin? Incoming flight was late, so UA 1560 was delayed. After boarding, IFE was not working. Crew could not get it to work. Snack options were NON-existent for a 5-hour flight. Upon arriving at Newark, the gate was not available. Come on United this is your hub. Final straw, the baggage took about 50 to 60 minutes to arrive."
優點： "nothing in particular"
缺點： "cold, inattentive crew, United premium economy product is not worth a pretty penny it charges"
優點： "The pilot and crew were friendly and helpful."
缺點： "The flight had a THIRTEEN hour delay. The plane was very old and broken (we couldn’t fly because of a broken fuel gauge)."
優點： "Crew can be nicer"
缺點： "Food and crew"
缺點： "Sits not suitable for long distance travel"
優點： "Since there was an empty seat next to me, I was able to spread out a bit."
缺點： "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."
優點： "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
缺點： "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"
缺點： "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."
優點： "The variety of TV shows."
缺點： "The flight attendants just didn't seem to care The food was so salty. The air conditioning made me cold and sick."
優點： "I didn't die."
缺點： "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."
優點： "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
缺點： "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"
優點： "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
缺點： "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."
優點： "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
缺點： "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"
缺點： "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"
缺點： "Checked baggage fees!!"
優點： "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
缺點： "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"
優點： "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
缺點： "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."
優點： "I enjoyed the crew and the service... Top notch"
缺點： "No tv on plain no free wifi like it was advertised"
優點： "fast take off and good service."
優點： "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
缺點： "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."
優點： "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
缺點： "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."
缺點： "No entertainment screen on each seat, just old TV far away. Very boring on this trip"
優點： "Early arrival"
缺點： "Waiting for docking spot."
缺點： "For a long flight, it's inexcusable to have no wifi working for both my flights. I'm very dissapointed as this was very uncomfortable to fly internationally. While they did play a movie on the communal screen, was hard to see from my seat. Would of much rather paid more to fly with a nicer service"
缺點： "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"
缺點： "Flight kept being delayed"
缺點： "中文廣播人員結結巴巴都在亂翻譯，太不專業了 服務人員一直玩，講話好大聲，讓人不能休息，很不舒服 大家下飛機時，每間航班都會很有禮貌一直謝謝搭乘，UA871我沒感受到。"
優點： "Movies on personal device"
缺點： "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."
缺點： "Sleeping in the airport"
優點： "Updates on delays were helpful."
缺點： "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."
優點： "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
缺點： "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."
優點： "Absolutely nothing."
缺點： "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
優點： "It got me to my destination."
缺點： "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."
缺點： "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."
優點： "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"
優點： "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."
缺點： "The flight from Newark was delayed and caused me to miss my flight from SFO to TPE. The gate staff on arrival did nothing to help ensure that I would make the flight. I chose United because i expected reliable service, instead I got the worst ever experience with an airline."
