Direct flight canceled. Rebooked on another for same day with a layover in Montreal. Arrived in Montreal to discover the second leg was cancelled and no options to rebook until Tuesday (original travel was for Sunday).
Charlottetown airport is wonderful. Montreal was a bit confusing & overwhelming but the Air Canada staff were helpful, patient & kind. I’d fly with them again..
Flight was cancelled. Rebooked via Toronto. Total delay to get to my final destination was in excess of 12 hours. Simply unacceptable.
Short trip and the service was great and courteous. I slept through most the trip so that helped that I wasn’t disturbed. Good wasn’t necessary.
Pros: "Crew is ok."
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The cabin announcements were rapidly spoken and hard to understand. The seats are too close together. The flight was overheated, stuffy air, too hot."
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Cons: "I was sitting right in the front near the first class area, and I needed to use the washroom, I was refused and ordered to use only the other 2 available ones at the back of the plane. It’s not much to say, but it’s weird to have only 2 stalls for the whole plane, and one stall for only about a doze"
Pros: "Slightly frayed due to weather- we were kept up to date"
Cons: "Very crowded in the seat...."
Pros: "I had requested assistance which was excellent."
Cons: "The small seats"
Cons: "The worst flight I have ever had. I am tall and this large plane was fit only for dwarfs. My knees were jammed into the seat in front of me and I could not move during the 3.5 hour duration. As a result of this experience I will NEVER fly air canada again. From now on it's whatever airline can treat it's customers with dignity."
Cons: "Flight left two hours late and provided difficulty in Toronto"
Pros: "Everything except the earbuds"
Cons: "Earbuds sucked; acoustics off."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me more accurate info about the luggage proces. Information at check-in was incorrect."
Cons: "1) incorrect luggage info in LIR 2) very late flight"
Pros: "I liked how the crew was helpful and wanted to help everyone with their luggage. they didn’t disturb me in my sleep and didn’t walked around a lot. The flight timing was on time and it landed on time as well so that was very satisfying."
Cons: "I didn’t like the sitting of the airplane. It looks more like sitting in a local bus and its not very spacious. On an average these days most people in Canada are tall and above the height of 5’7 feet. I didn’t like how seats are small and have less space for legs and plus the next person to me keep disturbing me cuz he was as tall as me and we both hardly fit in the seat. I am only 6 feet and slim and still had issues. I mean for domestic flight that’s only two hours I can manage sitting in a uncomfortable position but if it was a long flight then i would definitely not be happy and won’t fly with Air Canada again."
Pros: "Air Canada Rouge is last airline choice I would make"
Cons: "direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge is a nasty way to travel. In a standard seat, there is enough room for a very small adult/ child. If you are 6ft tall or more, you are going to be in trouble. If Air Canada gave an extra 3 inches of space for your knees between the seat in front of your own seat, everything else would be bearable. Corporate greed drives jamming in as many seats as humanly possible to ensure that you know how a sardine in a can feels. I am not sure why Air Canada feels justified in charging extra money for a bulkhead seat just so a customer can have a "normal" experience travelling. I would recommend every Air Canada exec goes for a ride on a Rouge Cattle Car to see how enjoyable it is."
Pros: "flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "not even peanuts! seats seemed even more crammed together than usual"
Pros: "Superb flight and landing"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delayed, missed connection"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Boarded on time."
Cons: "No more free drink."
Pros: "plenty of room, media player, wifi, nice selection of snacks and meals."
Pros: "Handled well despite delays"
Cons: "Connection was slow and ground team seemed over whelmed in pre clearance."
Cons: "No entertainment no snacks no checked in luggage. You have to pay to rent iPad to watch inflight movies as pay for earphones. Air Canada has become a premium priced airline with extra low cost /no frills service. Sad and disappointing. Last time I am flying with AC. Rather book cheaper airlines and know what to expect than pay a premium and get even less than the low cost option. Boarding staff was rude pushing people etc"
Cons: "After taking Air Canada to Toronto, this Air Canada flight from Toronto to Orlando was a shock- no back-of-seat tv screens, no entertainment choice, no meals provided, less space, less comfortable."
Cons: "Horrible, the most uncomfortable plain I ever been to"
Cons: "Lost our luggage in Toronto both times in and out. Had to sit to wait to pass customs for 2 hours and almost missed our connecting flight. Was released 15 minutes before boarding and couldn't enjoy dinner at the airport"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Things Beyond your control as an airline... Two kids next to me vomiting for the last hour. And holy moly, Canadians from the Montreal area can talk! The entire flight was filled with passengers non stop talking. Not kidding. And apparently the norm is to say something and then repeat it four times just to be sure. I thought Americans were the most annoying talkers, turns out we have competition."
Pros: "I arrived where I needed to be, safely."
Cons: "It might be possible to get good reviews for a flight that takes off two and a half hours late so that everybody misses dinner and gets to bed late (and forty-five minutes to get my bag didn't help matters). But you're not going to get them if you won't even tell your customers why the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The flight was half empty so was able to have a role to myself"
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge should be renamed Air Canada Rude. Employees are very un-friendly; Seat design on the plane is the most uncomfortable of any airline out there. Very close to each other and very little padding on cushion of seat. Dirty plane; don’t think they serviced it between flights, garbage in each seat pouch. Very cold on flight, crew did not regulate the climate control. Too many unnecessary announcements both in English then French. Each announcement seemed like it lasted about 10 minutes which no one listen. So much for trying to watch a movie that pauses every time the crew feels the needs to talk. Sat at gate for 30 minutes pass departure time without any explanation until right before we departed (waiting on passengers from late arriving flights). At lease they could have told us. Anyhow this is not the Air Canada of old. Air Canada Rouge shows no signs that they care about the comfort of their passengers."
Cons: "it was an international flight, they should offer/include something to eat."
Pros: "everything was perfect"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating of the negative situation my boyfriend was in. He was suffering from food poisoning from the previous flight and was unable to hold it in before the plane took off. They were very gracious with making sure that he had sufficient vomit bags and after the fasten seat belt light turned off, they allowed him to move seats in order to sit closer to the bathrooms. While this was a very difficult journey for him, the crew made it slightly more bearable."
Cons: "The cabin was dirty. The staff was not friendly. The cabin was freezing cold. The checking in system was not pleasant. We got the the airport 2.5 hours early and barely made it to the gate on time."
Cons: "Overbooked and was removed from flight without notice. Was flown to Newark, NJ instead. The next plane was broken and had to disembark. Got home 8 hours late, after 2am, and had to pay for transportation from airport because prearranged transportation was no longer available. Plane was dirty and staff was rude."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Didn't realize AirCanada Rouge didn't have entertainment, which allowed me to get work done...but you know, movies are cool too. Also the seats are super close together and make it a bit clostrophobic."
Pros: "I slept on this leg which I appreciated and we also got into Orlando early. Very excited about that."
Cons: "They charge for all snacks. I think for a three hour flight a small snack would be in order. A cookie or pretzels would work."
Pros: "Got upgrade"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour , totally full"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "flight attendants were not very helpful."
Pros: "All of our luggage arrived at our destination in a timely manner. Staff was helpful."
Cons: "Checking in our suitcase took exceptionally long."
Pros: "My passport was stolen in the airport and aircanada was very good to me."
Cons: "I loved everything"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "ROWS OF SEATS ARE SO TIGHT, TOO TIGHT"
Pros: "Understaffed flight Crew, extremely slow crew , took 1 hour and 45 minutes to distribute drinks. Horrible customer service and horrible smelly cloth seats so cramped your knees hit the little pouch on the sit in front of you. Worse airline ever. Only perk was the cost of the flight $1100 from Orlando to Nice. They had the best price for a last minute flight. But not worth it. My god I have to say this is really the most unorganized airline I've ever flown."
Cons: "Understaffed flight Crew, extremely slow crew, horrible customer service and horrible smelly cloth seats so cramped your knees hit th e little pouch on the sit in front of you. Worse airline ever."
Pros: "Every thing was on time. I really like booking with kayak...so simple"
Cons: "Air canada doesn't give a snack with your drink...where as west jet does."
Cons: "When I checked in at Ottawa they gave me a ticket for the Toronto to Orlando flight but there was no seat #. They said get it when you are at the gate. They knew all along there would be no seat # ever as they had overbooked by 12 passengers but didn't have the decency to tell me or apologize and explain. I was in line-ups for the 3 1/2 hrs I was in Toronto trying to get a seat and not knowing till the very last minute that I had one. The very back row next to the toilet. I will never recommend to fly Air Canada."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and orderly."
Cons: "Could prove in-flight entertainment options"
Pros: "Pretty comfortable"
Cons: "No monitors for inflight entertainment"
Cons: "No screaming babies but that’s out of their hands ;)"
Cons: "If you choose basic economy and have only a personal item (packing lite), they will not let you check in online ahead of time."
Pros: "Crew were very hospitable. Seating and take off moved at a good pace"
Cons: "Entertainment was limited. Smaller plane / less space"
Cons: "More outlets / usb charge ports"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "There was no WiFi or TVs"
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "So crowded, seats uncomfortable, wifi not working completely, screaming children."
Pros: "Pilot was nice with his opening annoucement."
Cons: "The AC was not blowing very hard or cold. Shared my negative experience and she did nothing to chance the experience."
Cons: "I had to check my bag at the desk which I had not anticipated. When I checked in at the kiosk I was told I could only take a personal item - no carry-in size bag - because of my ticket classification. Very disappointed to have to spend $30 I did not plan on."
Cons: "Delayed for like 12 hours.... I ended up just going home! This flight was important to me and it's sad the service I got. Crew didn't even offer water when we were in plane for 3+ hours. We we're in the plane with no ac. Huge dissapointment"
Pros: "More leg room than the International flight. Reported may luggage missing...the rep. was excellent. Too bad I din`t get her name. According to united I will get my luggage tomorrow before noon on June 2nd 2018"
Cons: "Lost my second luggage wishes I paid $60 for it and no one couldn’t help"
Pros: "It was a good flight, no turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times by 15 minutes. Not sure why they could not tell us how long the flight would be delayed all at once. They track the flight and know when it will land, don’t they?"
Pros: "They actually checked sizes of some “carryons.” Of course, it’s a cash cow for the carrier. The checkers should get 20% of the fee collected for checking oversized carryons at the gate."
Cons: "There are faster, more efficient ways to load and unload passengers."
Cons: "Delayed Swiss flight 8 tue 12 dec 2017 led to catastrophe"
Pros: "Great flight experience thank you United."
Pros: "Having a direct flight across the country was a good thing. That was about the only positive, well that & we did land safely."
Cons: "Ticket agent said I could take my bag on the plane. Gate agent told me my bag not I were going on the plane unless I paid $50 to put the bag below if I wanted to get in the plane. Very matter of fact & rude. I was just about the last person they let board so there really wasn't a chance to discuss with them. No WiFi on a cross country plane, lame. No access to the headrest video screen w/o paying for it, lame. Snotty unconcerned flight attendants as well. Overall one of the worst flights I've had in memory. I would pay more next time to fly another airline."
Pros: "love united"
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "Not much, the staff was ok."
Cons: "Boarding passes were a nightmare. Airline claimed we bought the basic ticket which doesn't allow you a seat choice, or boarding passes without a checked bag and there was no mention of this basic ticket upon the purchase. Then after you take off they explain you need the United app to watch their entertainment, but you can't download it without purchasing a $24. WiFi. They charge higher prices but act like a discount airline. My last trip with them."
Pros: "Great price, speedy flight"
Cons: "Don't remember having to be in lines for so long for reserved seats - awful technical delay (1.5 hrs)"
Pros: "Free Entertainment options"
Pros: "I slept through whole way. So it was fabulous. Clean and fast trip."
Pros: "It is really bad the seat to small for average person not leg room at all it is a flying school bus."
Pros: "Staff members were courteous."
Pros: "The crew were very kind and attentive without being overbearing. They were helpful."
Cons: "I did not like how my boarding pass for a ticket I had paid for long in advance had a 'see us' note about my seating. The counter attendent waltzed in after boarding had already started and treated the issue like it was a joke. I ended up seated in between two hot messes of people which made the flight seriously uncomfortable, there were no other options supposedly for me. There weren't even options for me to pay the outrageous pick a seat option when I was doing my preflight check in 24 hours in advance."
Pros: "Loved the movies"
Cons: "The flight was delayed two hours because of the arrival of the plane"
Pros: "Although the flight was cancelled due to the hurricane i got my money back."
Pros: "I liked 2 of the 10 people I asked for help getting my 78 year old mother to our gate and making the flight"
Cons: "I felt it Ridiculous that I had to get checked luggage, go out of secure zone and come back through. There was NO interest in helping us make our connection; had one person actually say, "I am sorry, it is United, they could care less". No one was helpful, no one cared, and the experience was horrible"
Pros: "Very cramped seats."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly. One man was brusque when I asked for water to fill my small bottle. Rare since most crew members I've experienced have been very pleasant. Snacks were pretty paltry. Ned to serve some biscotti."
Cons: "I was thoroughly disappointed when I realized that I had to pay to get any type of entertainment on the in-flight screen. That feels like zero effort on the part of the airline to make my flight enjoyable."
Cons: "After United made me miss my connecting flight, I got an alternate flight to a different airport, but not apology, no offer to upgrade, nothing. Already frustrated, and with my knees hitting the seat in front of me because the seats are too close together, a flight attendant scolded me when I dared put my leg in the aisle (which I often do on other airlines without incident). Once on the ground, I went straight to United's baggage office to see if my bag had followed me, and encountered two of the rudest people, cutting me off whenever I said anything more than they needed to enter into their computer. If your job is in customer service, be friendly, apologize when things go wrong, understand that your customers are your reason for being in business, and be helpful."
Pros: "It was a short ride"
Cons: "I was forced to change seats"
Pros: "Everything thing from checking in to landing was great. Had to change flight due to bad weather conditions and Lynn was extremely helpful."
Cons: "The carry-on luggage has gotten out of control. More and more people and bringing carrying to avoid the baggage fee.. just incrude in price of ticket.. it slows down the process at TSA, boarding amd getting off the plane.."
Pros: "Flight time was good."
Cons: "No snacks. TV was PPV only. Not enough room in seat."
Pros: "After being so delayed, movies were free."
Cons: "We were delayed over 3 hours. I don't think I've ever flown with United and not been delayed. Plus they never offered us food on the flight, only whatever was complimentary. Just not a great experience."
Pros: "Ground and flight crew were all pleasant and professional"
Cons: "This flight is always fully booked - book your seat early if you can."
Pros: "Crew members were very nice despite the delay they were able to bounce back with warm smiles"
Pros: "The flight attendant were super nice. Really nice people"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 2 hours. Then the guy on the front desk was really rude .. Maybe because I'm Latino? I mean he was super friendly with a white guy and a African American girl .. But with me .. Rudeness and bad service .. I said "hello , how are you?".. He didn't answer .. I told him when I did my checkin my boarding pass had "See agent" in the seating section .. He just took the ticket and gave me the last sit available on the plain even though I arrived almost 3 hours before the original departing hour .. I don't know .. It might be the only available sit or it was just a racist thing .. Who knows .. Really disappointed with United. I'll go back with Ameican Airlines."
Cons: "Kayak failed to alert me that MCO has an A & B bagge pickup areas and did not indicate which area I would find my luggage."
Cons: "Flight was late Unacceptable"
Pros: "Snacks on board - but not always available. Liked that the flight was direct."
Cons: "Didn't like middle seat, but had no option. Didn't like having to pay for movies so I didn't. Didn't like restrictions on luggage and having to pay to check in a bag. Didn't think the staff were friendly or helpful at all. Wouldn't recommend this airline to my friends because of those reasons. Need more improvements."
