Cons: "Everything. I never right reviews but I fly everywhere and this was the worst experience ever. Delayed flights and bad instructions. Really horrible customer service"

Pros: "Co fomfortable seats"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1.5 hours because incoming plane did not arrive. Finally took off 2.5 hours late. Just in time to arrive in Charlottetown to a severe thunderstorm. Circled til low on fuel then flew to Moncton. Refuelled and flew back to Charlottetown, arriving at 3 a.m., four hours late. The weather delay was understandable but WestJet's poor scheduling created the problem. Worst of all, the airline never told anyone what was going on, not the passengers nor the people waiting for them at the airport. Total silence. Unbelievable but typical for airlines."
Pros: "Smooth, friendly and cost effective."
Cons: "The seats are appropriately spaced but still too narrow for anyone with shoulders. Friendly and helpful flight staff."
Pros: "There seats have exceptional leg room. I've never experienced it on any other planes."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. Luggage was delayed coming off the plane. I assume it was weather related. One piece of our luggage was damaged. Not able to connect to entertainment app."
Cons: "Flight back was OK but flight to Orlando was not. Travelling with s 94 yr old man in a wheelchair. Everything at Pearson is not conduscent to travel with a handicapped person. Poor layout, poor assistance, non caring people, long distances,, and final straw was air canada started boarding without calling for handicapped first. We had to stop them and then fight our way up the aisle with people all in the way. Terrible, just lousey. 3 and a half hours before flight we arrived and didn't even have a chance to get some lunch before flight. I give Toronto and air Canada the worst possible rating of any airport or airline I've ever dealt with. John O"Hearn"
Pros: "Flight actually left Orlando early once all passengers were on board"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight because an Air Canada representative insisted I could not use my visa debit card for the luggage fee. I then tried to pay cash, but he said that he didn't accept Canadian currency, so I would have to use the ATM to withdraw American cash. I did, and the fees were ridiculous. Then, he didn't have change to break the 40$ i withdrew into his $25 fee. I proceeded to follow him as he walked around for twenty minutes asking random people at the airport if they had change for a twenty. It was very embarrassing and stressful, as I already was in tears from saying goodbye to my partner. Boarding the plane wasn't a problem, but getting on a plane in Orlando, Florida with the air conditioner broken with a plane of 300+ was outrageous. It felt like a sauna in the airplane and the kids were screaming in discomfort, something a 20-something like myself wanted to do as well but had the control not to. It's a shame because we used Air Canada a lot to travel back and forth to visit each other, but with this last trip we will no longer be using this airline and will shop for alternatives who are worth the price of admission."
Pros: "Nothing horrible, but nothing especially good. Decent amount of space but nothing but room temperature beverage served."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing, this goddamn company has so little to compensate for the great inconvenience they provide in mismanaging our flights."
Cons: "I was delayed significantly for both flights on my round-trip and all Air Canada can offer is 15% off my next flight with them. What an embarrassment this company is to be the official airline of Canada. They should change their name to Air Rouge and allow some other company earn Canada in the name. What absolute trash honestly, if you like delays because the plane has a technical problem and they can't even sort out a back up plane within 6 hours, at their headquarters with all these hangers and planes at their disposal, then at least you'll get 15% off your next delayed flight with them."
Pros: "air temperature was comfortable, crew members were nice"
Cons: "needed a little snack for kids. delays too long!!!"
Cons: "Threat , people stoll my staff"
Pros: "Everything was great. Smooth, comfortable ride. I felt well taken care of"
Pros: "Of the five planes we were on, all but one had comfortable seating (I'm 6'1" tall)"
Cons: "The lady helping us through the Toronto airport between flights made my wife cry. We had to stop to go to the restroom on the way to our gate, and the lady complained when I waited to go in after my wife came out. I told her I was going to do that, but she was apparently pre-occupied when I told her, because she was looking right at me when I said it. I then told her that I had let her know that was my plan, but she denied it, then told my wife she was just one of a hundred people. This left my wife in tears. This was a stain on an otherwise good flying experience, but it' tarnished the whole."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "They only had two people at the counter to check in passengers for two flights that took off fifteen minutes apart. they closed the ticketing/ checkin counter downstairs an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off. the same people moved up stairs to work the counter at the gate. it took us an hour and ten minutes to get check our bags. Once we got to our destination, only one of two bags was with us. the airline won't even deliver the missing bag to us. they will only get it to the destination airport if they can find it."
Pros: "Service was great. Food menu has improved greatly."
Pros: "The in-flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "We avoid Air Canada and after this flight that will continue. First, they wanted $400 for the return trip to guarantee that my wife and I sit together. To guarantee that we sit together and that it would be safe for her 28in femurs it would be $800. Then the Orlando leg of our trip was delayed by two hours, guaranteeing that we would miss our connecting flight. They would not make arrangements prior to departure, nor would they respond to any enquiries from any of the passengers about their connecting flight arrangements. On arrival in Toronto, as we pulled up to the gate, they announced that they had found alternate connections for all but 4 passengers that we would get more information outside. There was nobody at the gate. There was noone at customs. We did not know if we had a connecting flight, or if we had to pick-up our luggage. Nobody from Air Canada gave us any information. We asked security at baggage if we should go on to connecting flights or wait for luggage and were only informed that once we leave the baggage area we couldn't return. When we got to the terminal entrance for connecting flights, we were told (by security) that we could not enter without a new boarding pass. THEY directed us to the line for Air Canada (no indication if we were in the right line, but other people in the line were in the same situation. We finally got to the counter and were informed that we were on the last flight of the night and given boarding passes. Thank heavens that my credit card has priority pass membership. Delays happen. The way Air Canada handles it turned a minor annoyance into a maximum-stress situation. We already avoid Air Canada because they took away almost 50,000 travel miles for not flying for one year. We will work even harder to avoid them in the future."
Cons: "Late boarding again with Air Canada."
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"
Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"
Pros: "Because of the snow storm in Canada, there were delay. Air Canada improved a lot since the last time I travelled with them maybe 3 years ago. They are nice and want to help us. Since there were a delay at MCO, I had less time to catch my flight at Montréal. Everyone was helping. They look at us and smile. We don't seem to disturb them like before. There were an exeption with the woman at the Air Canada desk (MCO)for the luggage and at boarding who was annoying by my question and demand. She was the only one like that. Other passenger also notice it Everything went well also when I travel on my way to Orlando Nov 30."
Pros: "Departure was right on time. Arrival was right on time"
Cons: "Flight was a bit bouncy! Only got a free drink, no free snacks like pretzels or something."
Pros: "Not certain the type of aircraft used for the flight from Orlando to Toronto, but it had more leg room and more comfortable seats that the flight to Orlando which was on an Airbus. The seats were a wee bit wider and the extra few inches of leg room made the difference between a completely unbearable flight and one that was "poor." (See comments about the crowding and heat.)"
Cons: "We were returning after a cruise, spent part of the day on a shore excursion before being dropped off at the airport 5 hours before our flight. There was no rep at the check-in counter until 3 hours before the flight which meant we had to sit in the terminal for two hours. If they could have had one rep on duty to check in early arrivals, we could have proceeded through security and spent time in the MCO Lounge which would have been more comfortable than the terminal. Once their check-in counter opened it took about 2 hours to clear that and security. Once on board the sold out flight, we were told it was too cold in the front of the plane; while in the back it was baking. For a flight departing Florida, I would expect the airline to have A/C running before we boarded."
Pros: "No snacks but love flying with Air Canada. Hope it continues."
Cons: "Have to bring my own snack."

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Horrible smelly crampy cloth seats, awful food, they don't offer complementary wine and beer for international flights like other carriers, no tvs in the headrest. The flight crew works slower then I have ever observed in my over 200 flights. Took them 1hr 40min to serve what they called "dinner", Delta and others knocks it out in 30!!! And don't get thirsty, You'll die of dehydration before you get a drop of water. They treat ice like its gold. 2 cubes for each drink. If u ask for more u get one more cube. Lol. It was just a horrible experience! I will never fly Air Canada again."

Pros: "Flight wasn't full so could spread out a bit"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you had your own device"
Pros: "I thought the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly small and uncomfortable. No snacks were offered."
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "In flight entertainment sucked."
Cons: "No complimentary snacks and all available food extremely expensive. Would not use this airline again if others were an option."
Pros: "Movies were great."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for a window or an aisle seat."

Pros: "Prompt, courteous staff, clean ."
Cons: "Don't love having to watch movie on a phone. Would prefer screens on plane."
Pros: "flight crew were professional, polite, well groomed and personable."
Cons: "plane was dirty"
Pros: "The crew in Orlando was efficient and kind to waiting passengers. We were boarded and in the air in record time. Surprisingly, my baggage was unloaded in Toronto in record time. I would hope that that it always the case."
Pros: "new plane, premium economy was very good. chicken dish was excellent. better than expected."
Cons: "Flight delayed no information coming from them. Slow boarding with over a dozen wheelchairs and only one porter to load them. AC did not board children first but started with zones till one mother with 5 kids complained and then they announce young children can board. Girl at the gate chewed gum while dealing with passengers. No free cookies and only offered purchasable food. Free drink was a half full glass of warm ginger ale. No announcement about what to do with missed connections. AT the airport luggage was lost and only one person at the desk to handle dozens of people. Sent in circles looking for someone to help and causing me to pass 3 times through security even though I was never out of the building. This caused a major panic attack and not one employee came ask if they could help me. I was forced to hide in a washroom crying my eyes out and fighting the panic. Finally found out from another passenger that I could get a bus to Kingston. Went to an AC agent to inquire and told to go down stairs and ask them. I had 5 minutes to catch the bus but was told I would have to go back up stairs to purchase a ticket but would miss the bus. I found the driver who was awesome he let me purchase ticket on bus but I only had US dollars and they took it at par. Cost a lot for someone who has little. Luggage finally arrived 2 days later."
