Cons: "There were several announcements to download the Air Canada app in order to access in flight entertainment. They must have been 5-6 announcements about this. WiFi access was to start after take off in order to use the app. but was never available."
Cons: "Everyone on the plane was freezing and the crew could not do anything about it"
Cons: "- flight departed late but been told there would be no problem catching short connection - connection plane was there and still connected - could not board : tickets were cancelled while we were in the air in previous flight! - next flight left actually ... 1 min early. We could have boarded - been told it was because of luggages that could not connect. Lie. - clear case of over booking - disguised so Air Canada wouldn't pay for it"
Cons: "Air canada regularly delayed. It’s their trademark"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours on New Years Eve and in return, we were given $10 food vouchers... only problem was most things were closed in the airport because it was New Years, and what was open the $10 barely covered it. In flight entertainment wasn’t working properly and frequently cut out. Eventually gave up."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Having to pay for baggage on an international flight and no better snacks available without purchasing them."
Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment or a boarding pass for my connecting flight"
Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."
Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."
Cons: "I have taken 6 flights with your company in the last two weeks. Each has had a minimum of 45 min delay. Your seats are very small. Your planes seem dated and have no entertainment system on board, oh unless I want to pay another $10 bucks for an Ipad.. Food , what food. You did not have half of the items on your own menu.. and when I bought some cheese and crackers, I had to remind the lady that cashews were in the picture too. You have a mediocre airline, nothing to brag about here."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My wife and I were seated in different rows."
Cons: "No leg room, no snack. I had requested wheelchair service and was not met with a wheelchair as I exited the plane. Had to walk up the jetway. No onboard entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight got canceled 12 hours before we were supposed to take off. They postponed our flight 24 hours. It took forever to change it so that we still arrived at our destination on the same day. I'm glad I checked my email before going to bed because otherwise I would have shown up to the airport not knowing my flight was canceled. That should not have happened. It almost ruined my trip."
Pros: "Each had own entertainment screen per passenger"
Cons: "My luggage was left in Houston and that was very inconvenience. And it took a day and a half before it came."
Pros: "at least we wereat a part of the wedding"
Cons: "first flight scheduled april 20 at 12:05pm cancelled. second flight for 4:15pm to laguardia cancelled. excuses for cancellation were given but not to our satisfaction. as a result we missed a good portion of the wedding we attended in new jersey"
Pros: "Didn't actually take this flight due to a missed connection."
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "When someone has a terrible experience with a single individual it's just an anomaly. When it came to our experience it's easy to see that it's systemic and come from the top down in that company. The lack of customer service training is apparent. It was rampant and the overall feeling was just plain rudeness exuding from every team member. I'll never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Had to have a visa for connecting flights. Not worth going through Canada."
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers the best service and the most relaxing flights."
Cons: "Flight left gate on time then had a power failure. Pilot said can't fly the plane without power. Had to pull in, reboot all computers (and add fuel????). It doesn't really make any sense. Also does not inspire confidence in the plane. Only thing I can think of is they weren't done fueling and pushed back to protect their "on time" stats. If true, that's lame."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that because the flight from Bradley to Toronto was late I almost missed my Tokyo flight.. It would not have been such a big deal if I wasn't going all the way to-Tokyo. And had to go through customs. The commuter plane was delayed getting to Bradley. I got to Toronto, and again we had to wait on the tarmac. They knew we were coming and were late as it was. Canadian air also knew I had to catch a flight to Tokyo. I thought my connection times were to close and I was right. No one told me that I had to go through international customs. So, I was in the wrong place.When I made that discovery I literally ran to customs and asked to cut in line. Again I ran to get to the gate. They were boarding when I arrived. Why I say did you put me through all that when it was avoidable? Then on the way back after a 14 hour flight I had a 6 hour delay to get back to Hartford. Why was that I ask? The same thing happened last year. And you didn t fix it yet? Nightmare. And lets not even talk about the food on the plane. I make sure I eat before the flight if I have time.In this case there was no time. I also had to change flight dates. I was on the phone for 1.5 hours on hold. Only to be told that I was calling the wrong place. So, that's my Air Canada experience. Some sort of cash or check rebate should be in order. Not a voucher to fly with them again."
Cons: "Delays both on Det to Toronto and Toronto to Kingston"
Cons: "Not everyone travels with a portable computer. Upgrade your fleet to provide free in flight entertainment that you don't have to download an app for. Who wants to watch a movie on their tiny smart-phone screen? I'm not a five-year-old."
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Aaron, was wonderful"
Cons: "Everything else was awful....I was taking an international flights, so arrived at the airport 3 hours early, as specified. There was no attendant at the desk until 1.45 hours prior to boarding. We almost missed the flight, and as a result, the connection to London. If possible, I will not fly air Canada again"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."
Cons: "Only in Canada they make you remove headset for takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Delayed 20 minutes"
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"
Cons: "Everything poor attitude bad manners and terrible demeanor"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so could spread out a bit"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you had your own device"
Cons: "Was delayed so long I almost missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Staff was useless. Made all international connections via my cell phone."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did not bother to inform us! Ended up flying on United and arrived 6 hours later than planned."
Cons: "I was freezing - I was told the blankets where for medical use. Meanwhile they were giving them away. When we were about to land they gave me a blanket. Horrible."
Pros: "Plane are amazing! Enough room for each person and service was amazing, both at the checkin gate and on the plane."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "BOARDED LATE AND IN GATES VERY FAR FROM CHECKING. The (solitary) crew member did not speak French. Everything she said in French was unintelligible- very offensive (and disturbing) for Francophone passengers such as myself. And for a Canadian carrier- This shows no respect for our pluralism. When we book online and try to pick priority seating, then find out that the plane is so small that the 9th row means 9 out of 12 or something, this feels like a con. Especially when we pay extra. Stop making people pay for seats that don't get them any priority boarding (Zone 3!) and offer no real advantage."
Cons: "Food offerings were really mediocre and poor quality. For the staff and crew, I did not get the feeling that they had a service oriented mentality in their communications and attitude. It felt more like I was being processed- just one of any number of faceless people that needed to be dealt with as quickly as possible."
Cons: "AIR CANADA charged departure time after original reservation was made for our return trip to a later time that was inconvenient that resulted in a hardship driving for ( senior citizens) arriving home after a 4 hour drive from the airport to Ocala, FL.home arriving at 1 AM."
Pros: "I like every thing about that flight it was my best flight going to Jamaica.thanks again for such an awesome flight."
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "Steward was funny"
Cons: "Small plane, wasn't told ahead of time that there was no carry on luggage and I had lap top I had to carry on and expensive camera equipment that had to be checked, would not have taken this flight if I knew this ahead of time."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The fact that 10 minutes before we were suppose to originally board the staff at DTW was trying to get people to give up seats because they oversold the flight which should have taken care of before that. It also doesn't help that the flight was late arriving and unboarding so that it could be reboard by new customers and updates were unhelpful and useless when attached to the plea for someone to give up their seats. 0 out of 5 stars...would NOT recommend."
Pros: "They had brand new film releases."
Cons: "I got bumped. Even though, I made my flight on time AND had chosen my seat over a month ago, air Canada decided to bump me from my international flight. I was able to get a seat but not the seat I would have chosen (I'm six foot, I can't sit by the window). Since it was so crowded, I couldn't stretch my legs or use the loo. Finally I PAID for the seat I was bumped from; no one can tell me when I'll get reimbursed."
Pros: "I was landing in Montreal around 2am and my next flight wasn't until 18 hours later. I talked to the crew about suggestions for finding food, a good place to wait, and suggestions for seeing the city. They were fantastic. Suggested the 747 bus so I could see Montreal and helped point me in the right direction for where to be comfortable as I waited for the city to wake up. Thank you all so much!!"
Pros: "price was good, considering to china it's 13-1/2 hours"
Cons: "seems like the seats are narrower and tighter (fore & aft) then before"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, and air canada staff worked hard to get me to my destination with a different connecting flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough movie or TV selection for 15 hour flight"
Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."
Pros: "Seat good, boarding good"
Cons: "It was terribly cold, was not even offered snacks, the one steward was chomping on his gum very unprofessional on checking in"
Cons: "I didn’t even make this flight!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for the luggage to arrive at the carousel, and they sent it to the wrong carousel. Not sure if it was at the other one the whole time, or just took that long."
Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Pros: "All I got was a $20 food voucher for a 9 hour delay and missed meeting."
Cons: "All I got was a $20 food voucher for a 9 hour delay and missed meeting."
Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to family illness. And I guess that is not acceptable to United Airlines for a refund or reschedule without a fee that I could actually buy a new ticket for the cost of their fee. So I am losing out $578.00 Not happy."
Pros: "The flight was fine. Nothing that should have been positive stands out as missing."
Cons: "The first class flight attendant (male) was the worst. No interest in being on the plane, didn't bother to speak clearlybon the announcements. United should pull this person off of flight duty and deal with this person. The second is a terrible parent who let their kid cry the whole flight and afterwards in the jet way. This wasn't an infant had to be 4-5 years old and there was no parenting at all. The kid was old enough to be talked to. If you're kids can't handle flying, you don't get to fly."
Pros: "I think was a zero-drama, one-hour flight from DTW to IAD. Can't ask for anything better than that (seriously)."
Pros: "Better than driving to Chicago. But if you want to get there, best be early!"
Cons: "DTW is a busy airport on a Saturday morning. Even with TSA Pre-check it took an hour to get through security ... but keep us safe!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "That you had to pay for your entertainment--after all the fees and extra charges you pay when you buy the ticket, you would think the entertainment/TV would be free, or at least just the flight map."
Pros: "The timeliness was the best part of the trip. Stewardesses were friendly too."
Cons: "The seats felt like hard plastic; I actually felt some sort of pain for sitting on the 62 minute flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Cons: "Flight delayed only received a text about a rescheduled initial flight not my connecting flight waited in line for 2 hours only to find out I did have a connecting flight"
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"
Pros: "The touch down was smooth."
Cons: "Revise your website to state accurately of the luggage allowance. I watched the people in distress because their carry on was a little too bulky."
Pros: "Safe flight. Short."
Cons: "I was unable to load on to the plane after trying to confirm my conferirmatiojn. I was scheduled for a flight from Detroit to Newark New Jersey . I had received a hematoma at the airport directly prior to the flight at the counter in Detroit. It was essential that I be on the flight because my aunt died the next day and was extraordinarily ill. This was all explained to the agent. They did nothing to help in this mess. I ended up flying to Washington DC on a different airline. They did nothing to try to help. I want a refund for this flight. There is no reason the airline could have helped out in some way. I have emergency room bills and death notices. Thanks for your help."
Pros: "Smooth and friendly efficient crew."
Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"
Pros: "That I was able to get out of the ide seat"
Cons: "Because my flight was delayed I got re-routed so I no longer was. In preimier section and had to leave even later, and I was placed in a middle seat."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "It is uncomfortable, you can´t select a decent seat and there´s no entertainment, you hae to pay for it. There's suppose to be an option with mobile devices but when you make the ticket purchase it only says that entertainment is included in longflights and it is not. I paid for the entertrainment system but you have only some options and the movies start according to their own schedule so you can't really pick what you want to watch. And the directv remotes are not set in a good place, the are in the arm rest, so everytime the person next to you moves the wrong way they change your channel or turn the volume down or something else. For such an expensive and long flight the tiny space between chairs and entertainment lack is unacceptable."
Pros: "They changed my flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but they did put me on an empty flight leaving earlier but never switched my luggage to the new flight"
Cons: "It cost me money to rent a hotel to stay overnight and get here in the morning and my flight was still delayed because there was no body to tow the the plane and bring it to the gate . Miss work , miss appointments , etc . Pharmacy about to shortdown because of this poor notifications . Could have gotten an American Airlines direct flight to Dallas in the morning and minimize the situation"
Pros: "Everything was smooth from boarding to deplaning. On-time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Wish seats reclined and electrical outlets present for charging."
Cons: "My flight got hit with a fuel tankard and I had to stay in a hotel for the night. I didn't get to fly home that night and it messed up my entire schedule for the weekend."
Cons: "It was so late it left me in the lurch and ruined my week"
Pros: "Smooth flights"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. Staff seemed uninterested in passengers. Not compassionate."
Cons: "More leg room and on time!"
Cons: "There was only one person rescheduling and we got a faster reroute get plan on the phone. It was all pretty awful and we did not get to our destination until many hours after scheduled. Not at all a good trip."
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and clearly well trained. The seats had plenty of leg room. For being an early flight I was able to take a nap on the plane comfortably."
Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."
Cons: "No cash food and beverage"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
Cons: "Delay n missed my 2nd flight Then a 50 min flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew was always striving to make sure the flight was as comfortable as possible. They have me a couple perks for being in the military and that made my flight very enjoyable. I will definitely start flying with United more often"
Cons: "No bad comments on my behalph"
Pros: "friendly crew and good flight,,"
Cons: "why load the plane front to back,,Hassle getting by everyone,,A little common sense would go a long way,,,"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Cons: "Unbearable to be on board, to be told that the plane had to carry more fuel so it was too heavy and that 5 people had to get off on 24th December!"
