The plane was late for 3 hours
The flight was late leaving by a half hour. Other than that it was excellent
I didn't get to take this flight due to delays and missed flight
Atleast along with water or juice they should give some snacks.
Better inflight entertaining, good quality food.
Short flight, food and entertainment.. not an issue..
Pros: "It was a small twin prop so there was only one cabin crew, but she was really pleasant."
Cons: "Instead of just staying on the plane we were required to deplane and take all of our luggage and haul it all through a long winding ramp and hallway into the airport. As soon as we got there, they said it was boarding immediately and we had to turn around and haul it all right back."
Pros: "Pro-free wine!"
Cons: "Can-food not the best..."
Pros: "Service was impeccable. In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was nothing special"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Pros: "We have been using Premium Economy on various airlines I’ve the last several years for our frequent travel between the USA and destinations in Europe and Asia. The Air Canada experience was one of the very best (along with Lufthansa). The entertainment system was superior, food was great, service was attentive and comfort was as anticipated. The availability of power for iPads and computers was more than sufficient. I’m sure that a lot of the satisfaction came from flying on a Dreamliner but Air Canada is still at the top in our minds (and future plans)."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that the cabin was quite cold on our return trip. I could have been better prepared myself so I need to take most of the blame. The cabin crew did take steps to adjust the temperature but it would be unreasonable to expect the aircraft to meet the comfort expectations of every passenger. Next time I will just bring a light weight hoodie."
Pros: "Good flight, great crew members. Seats were comfortable and there were good entertainment options."
Pros: "Getting off."
Cons: "I had a seat with a drip, probably condensation, that feel on my head and face throughout the flight. At one point during takeoff it was a steady stream of water. I sat with a napkin perched on my head and would mop up the water between events. That was a first! And with a long 14 hour flight, not welcomed."
Pros: "Competent stewards/stewardesses"
Cons: "No meal?"
Pros: "The quick route was good (that's the only reason I *might* consider choosing this Air Canada flight again in the future)."
Cons: "On a flight to India, full of people of Indian origin, Air Canada served TERRIBLE imitation-Indian food. The "naan" bread was like a thick cracker, and the vegetarian curry was unedible. Samosas were soggy (they should be crisp on the outside). The Sikh man next to me complained over and over to the flight attendant. Of all the types of food to serve, leaving Vancouver, why not showcase great Canadian seafood or cooking? Everyone going TO India will soon get to eat amazing local Indian food, so why risk making poor-quality imitation Indian food?"
Cons: "Originating flight got delayed . Air Canada simply declined to accommodate in the next available flight even though I had single ticket with Air Canada and AIr India completing the final sector from Delhi to Bhopal and back."
Pros: "Very good flight experience"
Cons: "good planes, good services"
Pros: "I liked the exit row leg room. Not a big fan of the dreamliner layout, but they were very affordable."
Cons: "There was a 12-year-old seated next to the exit door. They tried to exchange his seat with other people in the exit row, but no one agreed to it. However, there were various open seats in other rows, some with 2 empty seats side-by-side. It baffles me that he could not move to another row."
Cons: "Too long to board and a little disorganized at boarding"
Cons: "Selection of movies was not up to par.The movies were all old with few new ones.Hoping the section would be better next year. Crew at front desk should be more organised in the boarding procedures at both toronto and delhi."
Pros: "Easy , on time, friendly"
Cons: "We got held up in Calgary due to the fact they lost everyone's checked bags then we finally got to LA they still had lost them. They told us they would have the bags to us in a matter of hours but it took 3 days."
Pros: "The comfort and the free entertainment."
Cons: "The food seemed average."
Cons: "The food on the flight to/from Delhi was too spicy to my taste. I'm generally allergic to certain spices and ended up eating next to nothing during the flight."
Cons: "I was unable to board that flight since I did not have transit visa for Canada and no where it was mentioned anywhere on Kayak's website. Nor on confirmation email as well. I was not aware of the same despite having travelled to states couple of times in the past. I had to purchase ticket from another carrier at the last moment on the airport."
Pros: "My onward journey was great. Return was not so. As a gold member I would have appreciated an upgrade. In a long flight I would have appreciated more water served regularly."
Pros: "Crew friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "First time on Rouge. Really bare bone travelling. Entertainment replaced by flight attendants who have become travelling sales people. I"
Cons: "and unexpected change of flights led to cancellation of flighs. Never ever Air Canada or related airlines"
Pros: "Comfort of the flight."
Cons: "Food was too spicy and had too much salt. Food quality needs improvement. Asked crew about the name of a food item and they didn't know."
Pros: "The direct flight was good time saver. The food was alright and the crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. In the same class, Lufthansa was more comfortable..."
Pros: "Timing. Getting to Delhi in 14 hours is really a timesaver. The seats have good space too, even when I am 6 feet tall, there is adequate leg room."
Cons: "Awful food Horrible boarding Terrible service and really no treats Seriously stingy about weight."
Cons: "-very little leg room on rouge plane -do not own a device to watch movies etc -this is very exclusive and assumes that everyone has access to devices"
Pros: "When my food was late they refunded it"
Cons: "The boarding times were quite far behind The lack of TVs was unfortunate, and renting an ipad instead for more money is cheap."
Pros: "The boarding was painless. We could board early since we were in Zone 1."
Cons: "Not enough space for overhead luggage. The crew looked overworked and stressed. Had to ask the stewardess 3 times for the same order. The seats weren't really an upgrade, it was just a Window and Aisle seat with a table in between. The service was not any better than economy. The Upgrade didn't feel like an upgrade. We will definitely think twice before booking with Air Canada."
Pros: "The meals provided from London to Montreal were delicious! Best food I've had on a plane before."
Cons: "there really isn't much room in between seats. You can't even lean down in front of you to pick up something with out having your neighbors move."
Cons: "service was not that great"
Pros: "Friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Although entertainment choices were very good but there was only one hindi movie. I was expecting better bollywood choices for a flight starting in Delhi."
Cons: "My carry on bags were checked in till Toronto and NOT lax ??? Checkin crew not helpful caused me lot of grief- I had to get the bags out from customs at Toronto and then take them on board for the flight to LAX- Customs and immigration- unnecessary hassle!!"
Cons: "Ontime and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "In my flight to India, I was asked to check in my hand baggage at Calgary. This bag got left behind in Toronto and I received it in India after 2 days. This was a big inconvenience. I wish Air Canada had compensated me for this inconvenience. On my way back, my checked in baggage was badly damaged. I realize that the airline is not responsible for this and it is the airport crew. Overall a good experience. I will definitely take this flight again, but will not check in my hand baggage. The crew is very friendly and helpful - great service."
Pros: "I like the service s over all"
Pros: "the flight was on time, without any delay"
Cons: "Variety of movies needs to be improved asap A bag of Pretzels or any type of snack would be a plus"
Pros: "the seats reclined better than most in my experience"
Cons: "it was too hot. the vegetarian food was vegan. it was not filling - very small portion and no protein or fats to make you full for dinner! flight was delayed about 1 3/4 hours"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant, there was in-flight entertainment, and even refreshments. All 3 of these are rare these days so I was happy about that."
Cons: "There was a delay but that's ok."
Pros: "No real issues...nice direct flight...on time too! Good movie selection."
Cons: "Connection of headphones was not good...monophonic sound"
Cons: "The rates that were on Kayak were different than what we were charged on our credit card. Kayak kept sending us canned response for charging us $1500 extra and when we reached out to Air Canada, they kept mentioning that they are not responsible for what rates were displayed by Kayak and they charged us $3000. I am Just FRUSTRATED by the way I have been conned between 2 systems and They wanted me ( the customer) to go and figure out what went wrong. TERRIBLE SERVICE. Don't buy from KAYAK"
Cons: "While checking in online for the boarding pass I was asked for information like my nationality, residence, passport number, but yet I wasn't informed that I would be needing a transit visa to take a connecting flight from Toronto. I was issued a boarding pass and assigned a seat on the plane. But when I went to board the flight I was not allowed to. I had to go back home with all my luggage and book another flight. No compensation of any kind was provided for the inconvenience and harassment that I had to go through. Not only did I not get any money back I also had to pay for another expensive ticket. I believe it is the airlines responsibility to ensure that the passenger doesn't miss such an important requirement such as the transit visa. They should have check points/pop up messages on their website during the booking of the ticket or during the issuance of the boarding pass that informs or at least directs the costumer to such specific and vital requirements. When I fly by Air France they always direct me to a page that helps me locate the requirements to travel through a country. No such thing was there on Air Canada's website. This was the first time I was flying with Air Canada, but thanks to them I never did. And now I never will."
Pros: "Individual employees at the gate seemed like good people who got stuck in a bad situation."
Cons: "The check-in process was needlessly difficult. We had to check in less than 12 hours before our flight because the website would not allow access. We could not choose our own seats until very late in the process. Our family was split up (we encountered 8 other families also split up, including single parents with young children). When most of us fixed this problem ourselves on the plane, we got lectured by flight attendants about the "wisdom" of checking in early. Boarding was very delayed because of overbooking and confusion; some people did not make it aboard even though they had been guaranteed a seat. Crew was apathetic, at best. The food was deplorable."
