Pros: "terrific video entertainment, excellent and affordable food choices"
Cons: "cramped no food"
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."

Cons: "i was unlucky to get young noisy kids behind me and in my row each flight. but that is nothing Air Canada can do anything about."
Pros: "Nice selection of media. 767-300 is comfortable."
Cons: "Late boarding due to plane's turnaround issues. Unusually long delays at baggage claim...may have been lack of coordination on part of the airport."
Pros: "The gate agent was extremely helpful and was able to accommodate me standby on this flight vs a later flight."
Pros: "Crew quite courteous and helpful. Smooth flight and landing. Pleased overall."
Pros: "Great crew and was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was expensive"
Pros: "friendly staff, good food in bus. class. great smooth landing at SFO"
Cons: "long wait for luggage at SFO"
Pros: "Clearing customs in Canada"
Cons: "Over priced food"
Pros: "I enjoyed the pleasant crew and the constant water being given."
Cons: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. However it was unexpected that no food would be provided on a 5 hour flight. If not a small meal then a snack was expected. The crew did provide water consistently which was very nice. My personal entertainment screen was very unresponsive and then the head phone jack wasn't working for sound, I had to hold it at a certain angle to hear bits of sound. Since the head phone jack was located at my thigh it was very uncomfortable and when I shifted I broke my headphones :("
Pros: "It was a short flight so even if it was bad I wouldn't have minded that much but the plane was clean and smelled nice. Flight was very uneventful which is good."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The crew are all very polite and easy going. They displayed a certain candor that is lost in todays customer service. I've always enjoyed flying United and will continue to do so."
Cons: "Several of the passengers had connecting flights. On plane that size, it takes time to get off the plane. It would be nice if the crew would allow those with connecting flights to disembark first. An easy fix in my mind, though I know I don't see the whole picture."
Cons: "air canada moved the flight time up an hour earlier, so I missed the check-in cut-off. I never received an email from kayak or air canada that my itinerary had changed. On top of this, air canada wanted $150 to book me on a later flight (which, after protest, was rescinded). My guess is that air canada is vastly overbooking some flights, and this is a technique to shake some passengers loose and force them onto less-full flights. Shady."
Pros: "Really flight was very good, but seats to family member given separate seperate."
Pros: "On time and great service"
Cons: "liked everything"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I waited in the Fort McMurray airport for 15 hours until I was able to get a flight the next morning. I was only provided a $10 meal voucher."
Pros: "It was a nice flight-- the seats were comfortable and relatively spacious. The cabin crew was very friendly and accommodating. They offered us water multiple times throughout the trip in addition to the normal drink service, which was much appreciated. Also, the AirCanda gate in Toronto was ridiculously nice-- many of the seats came with a desk, phone and laptop outlets, and an iPad!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes, the boarding process went quite slowly, and our bags were slow to arrive at baggage claim on the other end (which probably was the airport's fault rather than AirCanada's). But these were only minor inconveniences."
Pros: "They give you earbuds if you forgot yours."
Cons: "I have been on several Air Canada flights and only ONE has taken off on time. Who has an international flight and does not serve any food? Not even one peanut or pretzel!! Entertainment system has the absolute worst tv shows. Or you need the app and PURCHASE the privilege to use it. The people boarding move at a snail's pace"
Cons: "This flight reservation used another carrier. It was confusing to know which check in counter to go to. When I finally made it to UA counter there was a problem with duplicate reservation. Annoying. Flight was delayed 4 hours with minimal updates and no food voucher. Did not get my flight off to a good start."
Pros: "We found out that United had canceled the flight while in line about to undergo security screening, leading to mass confusion on the part of the screening agents on even where to send us. The next several hours were anxiety filled as we try to hop onto other flights going to our destination as we were stuck in the US area of the Vacuver airport, as we could neither leave the airport or had a way out. In the end, we had to be rerouted to a different airport and take another connection, which in standard United style was delayed by yet another 4 hours. And upon arrival, all of our bags were lost, not unsurprisingly. The worst part was that for the next 4 days, no one knew where the bags were and we were without our checked bags for 5 days until they finally arrived. As an experienced traveler, this was the worst flight I had ever taken and will never fly United or Air canada ever again."
Cons: "Movie choices are poor. Food was not good, especially breakfast egg."
Pros: "Flight was normal"
Cons: "Booked on August 20th and flight time was changed 4 times between that date and date of travel:... I was not notified of any change from flight network or air canada until I went to check in within 24 hrs before.... If I knew about the change at any point I would have cancelled for a different flight or travel day.... I fly with west jet every 14 days and never have issues... This was the first flight I booked with air canada in 2015.... And now the last forever.... Unless someone takes accountability for the errors and lack of communication I received..."
Cons: "Flight delayed by three hours without any explanation from the company. They did not even respect the rescheduled time, the flight delayed once more after the first delay - again, without any explanation or excuses from the company."
Pros: "Our incoming international flight was late; the generously held the flight for us and gave us water after we boarded...we were parched from running!"
Cons: "The interior of the A321 was dated and the seatback monitor had low resolution compared to newer products."
Cons: "Poor legroom Flight sat for 1 hour on the runway"
Pros: "Seat was great. Food offerings were good."
Cons: "Charging for two bags."
Pros: "Short flight! Attendants friendly on plane & quick to make you comfortable."
Cons: "Long Line up to check in. Kiosks not working. Attendant was multitasking & hopping from computer to computer. She mistagged my luggage & put another customer's tag on mine. My luggage was not sent straight to NZ as planned but ended up being left in San Fran. The only hope of identifying it was the blue ID travel tag that thankfully I put on there myself, as Air Canada's tags were all wrong & were for a male customer going to Honolulu, HI. Still waiting for my luggage to show up. No clothes, no sandals....all day... Next time I will ensure I do NOT bring any luggage items for checking in! Instead I'll stick to a carryon even if it is a 3 wk trip across the world...."
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth. Boarding and disembarkation went smoothly. Few interruptions by the flight crew during the flight."
Cons: "Seats are crowded, not enough leg room. Food is for purchase, which is a bummer. The entertainment is inconvenient"
Pros: "Air Canada is probably the worst company I used to fly with Only thing they didn't charge extra is going to washroom, that will change, I'm pretty sure, very soon."
Cons: "The only thing I liked about flying with Air Canada is that we finally got to the destination"
Pros: "Seats are quite comfortable. Also the new pretzels are great, good mildly buttery taste."
Cons: "Woud like to see Visa-debit cards as acceptable payment for inflight food stuffs"
Pros: "crew was good"
Cons: "takes too long to board and disembark the plane because o all the stupid carry ons"
Pros: "A 10:20 AM flight didn't left the gate at 15:30. Destroyed my day."
Cons: "The flight!!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, small kid sized cup to drink from that was mostly ice, small crowded seating."
Cons: "Only "snacks for sale" offered for food, although they did provide free beverages. The earbuds also were not free, although they had been free on our prior Air Canada connecting flight. And the entertainment screen blacked out during the latter part of the flight."
Cons: "Extremely cramped and uncomfortable seats, air cabin hot and uncomfortable (no air) while boarding. Snack and beverage service was abismal. Will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to make traveling with an infant easier, and the agent at the desk upgraded us to seats with more legroom when we asked to sit together!"
Cons: "The movie selection was a bit limited."
Pros: "The crew were struggling to win us back, after the shock of discovering we were not seated together. Anything they tried was seen against the backdrop of that major disappointment."
Cons: "When a booking is made six weeks prior for two passengers, it is assumed that the seating assignments will be made together. This airline chooses to put all seats up for grabs to those who will pay more, and ignore those who don't access the option of paying out more than the basic fare."
