I missed that flight because Air Canada did not send my luggage which caused delays at Customs
Audio system in the seat was not working. The entire flight WiFi was not working.
1.5 delay leaving SLC and no option to make right. Stood in line at customer service for 1hr, and could have made a connecting flight to get me to my final destination same day if customer service was adequately staffed
Staff were lovely. My only beef is can't anyone offer snacks that don't have corn in them?! Especially pretzels, which don't even need it!!!
Never took the flight. I booked this back in November because I needed to make a connection in Calgary. Air Canada canceled my flight unilaterally and never provided a better alternative that could fit my schedule. I would never flight Air Canada based on that experience.
Same difficulties as before - late, little to no explanation, inattentive staff, very late take-off, standing in long lines. Much better with other airlines.
