Other passengers continue to be the hardest part of flying now.
Great flight, arrived early.....perfect
Cons: "Bathroom was disgusting. Sink and toilet clogged and filled with paper"
Pros: "they gave me the special food"
Pros: "This is hands down the best airline to fly to and from Canada."
Cons: "I wish the food for purchase options had better vegan and vegetarian selections."
Cons: "Umm let me see. Oh yeah they lost my luggage and still haven’t found it. Pretty much ruined my whole trip."
Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Don't let kids sit by the dreamliner windows. They play with them too much and the change in lighting wakes people up. Food was ok."
Cons: "Flight was about 2 hours late, little food supplied to flight"
Pros: "The seating was good and the pilot was friendly."
Cons: "There was not a good movie selection and there was not a lot of information regarding the altitude and there was not very much warning during turbulence."
Cons: "crew was rude and unhelpful with delayed flight"
Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled and rebooked with a connecting flight."
Pros: "We did finally get to our destination."
Cons: "Late flights, missed connection, no ground service"
Cons: "Food is not appetizing, flight crews are just ok, entertainment are limited."
Pros: "From NGO to Vamcouver arrived after City's tours left 30 min. earlier, but back to Vancouver to Tronto too early for a good visit of City, when ariving Toronto at 1:30 am, and no connecting flight till 7:00 am. Agents at Toronto gate was not nice, which was unfortunate because all othr AirCanada agents were nice and flights were smooth."
Cons: "Connecting flights were not convenient. First time AirCanada, and Kayak. Seemed I got a bad set of flights returning. Going was good. Got tricked. Suggeston of flights may have been available but did not know. Need more research in next trip. Agents, contracted agents at ticket counter in Atlanya, were very helpful. They were superve in helping me when a traffic accifent shut doen for 2 hrs and I was late on arriving at Atlanta airport."
Pros: "This was a direct flight from LAX to Montreal. The flight crew was both professional and friendly."
Cons: "Through no fault of the flight crew we were delayed almost two hours on the tarmac due to lightening storms in the area."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and accommodating."
Cons: "They should be more thorough in the economy clad cabins to make sure that passengers have their bags put away way before we leave the gate. Flight crew hardly walked through the aisles in economy and were attending to th other cabins more."
Pros: "Ground personnel"
Cons: "The overall service on board"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."
Pros: "Quick boarding, flight on time, nice crew."
Cons: "The only thing they serve is water. Still or sparkling. And chocolate bar. Anything else is paid. It's not low fare airline and this should not be happening."
Pros: "Nothing because ..."
Cons: "It didn't happen. I booked myself on Delta for an am flight at my own expense. I will not fly air Canada again. This was the worst customer service experience I've had in 35 years of flying. I'm a multi millions mile flyer and will fly to Calgary a lot going forward, but not AC"
Pros: "The flight was on time!!!"
Cons: "I find over the past 25 years that I have been flying with Air Canada the customer service has really went to the dumps !!! Every body is rude and don't understand why."
Cons: "- hour delays on both flights at the gate once we boarded -first plane leaving late made it hard to get to my connection on time, almost missed my flight. no actions were taken by staff to make the transition easier although the plane leaving late was Air Canadas issue -window seat was extremely uncomfortable. felt like i was packed like a sardine. the window seat on my second flight had more room and was more comfortable."
Pros: "All was well. Thanks"
Pros: "The plane was nice and spacious. A CA agent stationed by customs helped about five of us get to the front of the line, so we'd make our next flight."
Cons: "1. After playing 20 questions at the check-in kiosk, it was unable to print our documents. 2. So we played 20 questions again and the second machine failed to check us in. 3. The flight was delayed about an hour (due to weather, not your fault), so our connection was tight. We alerted the agent at the gate (along with several others). She didn't help at all. She just told us to go to the gate. Well, we had to go through customs, so that wasn't helpful. What we were asking is if she could alert the gate agents at the next flight that we were running as fast as we could. 4. So five of us get to the next gate as they're paging us that the doors are closing. 5. Our bags didn't make the flight, which wasn't unexpected, but it was worrisome when the agent at our final destination told us she couldn't tell where they were."
Pros: "Hard to find positive when your knees are hard pressed to metal bracket of the seat in front of you. They should be ashamed squeezing that many seats in to make an extra buck. Shame on you Air Canada."
Cons: "There is zero legroom in the seats! At 6'3" my knees literally jammed the seat in front of me. Sad to see profit has created the need for this much discomfort."
Cons: "Not aconfortable plane"
Pros: "Boarding process was good"
Cons: "No free snacks offered"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Having to pay to have a bit of extra comfor while traveling with a 14 months old"
Pros: "The ONLY part of flying Air Canada that I used to like was your partnership with SAS, over the past ten years I have lost more airtravel points through Star Alliance troubles than I could have made in the decade before. Luckily when I fly from my birth place of St. John's NL, you're ground staff are the absolute best! I can give "shout outs" to each and every one of them. From those ready for retirement to the new staff just in from "who knows where", they get the whole "customer service" priority that your airline needs to focus on. Your management in Halifax "Sharon" is out of this world too, other than that whether through Lufthansa, Air Canada or anywhere I would travel, seeing that red leaf on your wing would make me ashamed to be Canadian."
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat to ensure leg room, all I got was ear ache! The flight - although half empty had no place for my briefcase, but I was "ordered" to push my sealskin bag under the dirty greasy seat in front of me. When I requested they store it upfront for take-off & landing - the french female steward started flirting with the man sitting next to me and didn't even offer a response. When drinks came around - I was handed a half empty glass with juice on it's exterior and borrowed a napkin from the next seat. Later I did get a napkin "thrown gently" over the person she enjoyed speaking with. I was happy to wait until connecting passengers disembarked before the local traffic, but was appalled when the more senior female steward stopped a local passenger who I know has anxiety about flying - to insist she let the other passengers off first. Air Canada needs to be educated on what human behaviour entails, before they can graduate to customer service. Together with my first name, you can know my last name is Floyd"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and I had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No snacks offered with drink. Boarding wasn't well organized. Toronto airport is horrible... long lines at customs and security caused me to miss my connection for the second time in a row."
Pros: "Air canada needs a serious serious overhaul of the way they treat their customers especially those working at the Toronto airport I find their employees have an "entitlement" mentality that other carriers do not Customer service seems to be a priority not talking to your coworkers about the weekend while serving your customers"
Cons: "There was one employee who suggested to take an earlier flight and was very helpful Little things go along way"
Pros: "There are a variety of entertainments section."
Cons: "During transfering from air canada to delta an employee failed to transfer all my baggage. As a result I couldn't get one of my baggage yet. Moreover there was no reservation made for me and I missed the flight since I lost the time by going back and forth to Delta and Air Canada offices to fix the problem. As a result I spent the night at Detroit and take the next day flight."
Pros: "Free entertainment. Big, spacious plane"
Cons: "Food was disgusting and crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Staff was rude. And I was seated next to an alchoholic"
Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."
Pros: "Crew was fairly friendly and a little hands off. Food was the best I've had flying abroad thus far. Seats were okay. Was in economy so I can't expect too much but I would love if there was a little more room especially for people stuck in middle seats. Seats were fairly comfortable. There was a lot more leg room than I have before which made the 10+hr flight better!"
Cons: "Boarding didn't go well for me as I almost missed my flight due to delays (but that didn't make me feel upset towards Air Canada, just bad circumstances that I had to be honest about). Crew was fairly friendly - a little hands off (which is good) but I wasn't wowed by them. Wasn't a lot of movie options. I realize you can't get a TON but a few more current movies would have been nice."
Cons: "The two meals served on board were cheap. Very small portions and cheap containers were used."
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Friendly and helpful staff. Smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "We didn't like all the walking to get to and from the plane in Terminal 2, Heathrow. Anywhere else in the world would transport people by bus if it was going to be a twenty minute walk to the departure gate."
Pros: "It was on-time, left enough time to reach connections and my bag arrived."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "Great wifi ap entertainment feature"
Cons: "Being delayed twice- once for late passengers then for door problems"
Pros: "I LOVE the individual entertainment screens - those are great! The crew was very helpful and nice."
Cons: "Again, my seat assignment was changed to a middle seat when I checked in (I wonder if this is because I'm traveling alone?), even though I specifically purchased a window seat 3 months ago."
Pros: "On time both on departure and return trips."
Cons: "Crew could have come round looking for disposals sooner rather than at the end. No one came by to check if seat belts were fastened properly."
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and accommodating."
