It sucks when you have the last seat on the plane and it doesn’t recline. You should at least get a complimentary drink to ease the pain.

I usually don’t go out of my way to make comments but on my united flight from Washington walles airport to Minneapolis Flight number UA2274 on the 31st of August I had excellent out of this world service from one of the flight attendant name Jared I believe the work of this employee should be praised as I never experience such a smiling and friendly service from any flights I took and I fly with different companies a lot This guy should be rewarded somehow or given a promotion His partner Mick was also very nice but Jared went off of his way to make people happy

When baggage misses the connection, it can be helpful to call when it's in, allowing customer to come get it or wait.

Air Canada did a fantastic job of making sure our plane was safe to fly in. We witnessed the de-icing procedure while on the runway and were very impressed.

The only issue that I had was 8 hour layover in Sao Paulo.
