Pros: The cabin crews professional, kind, and helpful attitude all the time during the flight.
Cons: 1- The boarding, was very late as well as the departure. 2- The captain’s departing and landing technique, I had a feeling the plane was going to dismantle due to his harsh landing!. 3- The food’s quality.
Flight attendant for first class is definitely not a morning person. Oh and the WiFi DID NOT WORK!
Pros: Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out.
Pros: Everything was fast, smooth and easy.
Cons: Hong Kong Air wouldn’t give me my boarding pass until I had booked an onward flight leaving Thailand. I wish I had foreseen this, it’s annoying having to book a flight in 5 minutes when you don’t know your travel plans.
Pros: Standard flight
Cons: My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight.
Pros: Seat is comfortable.
Cons: Very nice airplane. Ride is comfortable. Processing in immigration is very fast. In 30min you are in the parking lot already.
Pros: Everything! From ticketing agent to all the crew on our flight back were awesome. Thank you!
The food selection has been better in the past but due to Covid it is understandable. This particular flight did not have any entertainment and the Air Canada App did not work to access movies.
Cons: The flight attendants would forget me when tending to everyone
