Pros: "Took way way to long"
Pros: "We were happy to be seated in the exit row which gave us additional space. Although it was a direct flight, they offered drinks and snacks twice, when normally when flying I only see then come by once. I noticed Aiden seemed really friendly and kept a smile. Also when dropping off our luggage beforehand was a fairly speedy process."
Cons: "Seats don’t lean back."
Cons: "Boarding was not enforced by zones. When people line up it is better staff announce zones and force people to not get in line"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. Good leg room."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours. There was a change in gates and aircraft. The gate was too small for the amount of people boarding. Families were separated due to the change of aircraft. Few updates of the situation while waiting."
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay"
Pros: "The staff are very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Doing in flight entertainment via app is a fine idea. But your app requires way too many permissions so I won't use it. Otherwise, an excellent airline."

Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Pros: "Ginger ale, normally a great flight but had my first turbulant flight and boy that was scary!"
Cons: "Turbulence and the woman who would stop talking beside me"
Pros: "Our flight from Australia was delayed, resulting in our missing our connecting Westjet flight. Not only did Westjet get us on the next available flight, but the staff were friendly and very helpful. They made it seem like it was no problem at all, even though we were on the cheapest fare."
Pros: "The flight was average. Not great but not bad"
Cons: "I was forced to pay 50 dollars for our first piece of checked luggage on our return flight. This was not indicated to me when purchasing the ticket and absolutely horrible policy of weet jet and kayak by affiliation. How can you be selling tickets and not clearly indicating whether or baggage is not included. Also when we checked in it did not indicate this fee. It wasn’t until we got to the airport were we notified. Not that it makes a difference because obviously if we checked bags original departure we would obviously need to bring them back. The whole thing seems sleazy. Otherwise the service was pretty good."
Cons: "flight was delayed and missed my connection. no flights to atlanta for 2 days."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, a good selection of entertainment and comfortable seating."
Cons: "Having to wait in the plane for an hour prior to takeoff due to a lock issue with the washroom."
Pros: "Westjet connect on board. Snacks. No problem to get our bags."
Cons: "The waiting on the tarmac ( 1:00) with a young child. We arrived 2:30 later, so the desk for rental cars was closed."
Pros: "Fantastic flight!"
Pros: "Friendly staff 8"
Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."
Cons: "Arriving at Orlando, Real confusing and I'm not really old yet. Good thing we had people to meet us, I had no idea where to go."
Cons: "I downloaded the app but was disappointed that the aircraft had no Wifi. There were TV's on each seat back, but several weren't working, including mine. The flight attendant reset the satellite TV's on the whole aircraft, and mine began to work for about 15 mins. Then it stopped again. Very disappointing to be without wifi AND Tv. Esp since I read thru all my reading material on the way to Toronto."
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant, not full, on time and seats had electrical outlets and USB ports."
Cons: "They destroyed my checked luggage and refused to give me an adequate replacement. They also refused to cover for the resulting damages to my items."
Cons: "It was freezing cold, and blankets now cost $4.00! So I spent the whole red eye shivering, even in my sweater! I could feel the cold air hitting me the whole flight. The boarding was confusing, with no organized lines or anything. Some of the announcements were too quiet to hear."
Pros: "Screaming movies"
Cons: "Arriving over a hour late then staying on the tarmac in Orlando for another 45 minutes as the gate wasn't working when there was plenty of other gates available."
Pros: "Start the flight a bit earlier than scheduled, so we arrive a bit earlier too. The flight is smooth."
Pros: "I got motion sickness and they helped me bringing ice to put on my neck. It helped a lot. They were amazing!"
Pros: "Actually a good flight. Uneventful!"
Cons: "I didn't know how to get the entertainment offered so it would be nice if there was some info on how to go about getting it."
Pros: "When I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to AA failure at the gate. The woman at the westjet gate was super friendly and kind to me. She gave me a good seat and meal vouchers to get me through the night. Unlike AA who could not care less."
Cons: "I missed my flight but that not your fault."
Pros: "I thought the flight was a smooth and comfortable one, the pilots are amazing at what they do. In my opinion they have one of the most under-appreciated jobs on the planet. They got everyone home safe and sound, and at the end of the day that's the most important thing."
Cons: "When people travel, as a professional airline you would think that luggage and food is something that would be provided for its passengers. People very rarely travel empty handed. You would think that after spending so much money on a ticket, one small meal and 1 piece of baggage would be included. It really turned me off when I realized that I had to pay extra for this. Ask yourself one question, would you travel empty handed? Would you feel comfortable paying $10 for a meal that should cost $5? I get that it's a money grab, but c'mon your company already makes millions (possibly billions) atleast provide people the option to bring one piece of luggage and a meal. I will NOT be using westjet to fly to Trinidad anymore. The flight was good, but many other airlines provide a smooth and confortable ride as well. That being said, things like that can cause people to stop using your airline and go somewhere else. Just something to think about... Caribbean airlines provide the samething your company provides, except they give you food and allow you to bring luggage woth no hassle."
Cons: "Seats with more room and more padding. Snacks."
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: "Flight nearly on time. Good legroom."
Cons: "Food was so-so. Don’t like having to pay for a drink on an international flight costing $1000."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable seats, good, easy to use entertainment. Everything you would want on a flight. I have never flown air canada before, but definitely will again!!"
Cons: "The agent in Miami suggested I needed to eat something. He was calling me fat, and my daughter picked up on it. He also kept us waiting at the front of the economy check in line for well over 40 mins. When we asked him why he said the computer would not allow him to pull from our line. The flight itsself was delayed for over 2 hrs and was discusting. Dirty aircraft. I despise Air Canada"
Cons: "The seating in economy is becoming ridiculous. At 5'6" 110 lbs. I am not a "big" person. I feel jammed in the seat and, with passengers behind complaining when my seat is reclined, my bad back threatened to leave me to hobble off the plane. The continuing reduction in seat size and leg room is becoming ludicrous."
Cons: "No food options they were out of food. Crew never helped a bit when I asked for water. Landing was very scary. Delayed for nonsense reason and missed the next flight. Rebooking next flight after 10 hours they didn’t even provide any comfort other than 10 euro vauchar."
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: "There was nothing unpleasant"
Cons: "Long walk from terminal F and it wasn't well maked"
Cons: "No offer to have transportation to gate. I am disabled and had a very long walk."
Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."
Cons: "One hour late"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."
Pros: "Ground personnel"
Cons: "The overall service on board"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Cons: "See above. I didn't fly as I had scheduled."
Pros: "Crew noticed I was thirsty and gave me the can without asking"
Cons: "Crew said I wish they would hurry up and get off and I whipped my head around and she apologized. She meant no harm but that's not good service."
Pros: "The price for the flight was right. Nothing can be done about the seat size. Food was ok. Comfort of seats ok. Not easy to recline. The etertainment helped me fall asleep, a Good Thing. Crew was pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "Pearson Airport is a miserable experience for travelers. Security there is very badly managed. Long, long long lines of people waiting without reasons given, getting lost because signage is poor, unable to understand the English of the employees, weeping exhausted children and innumerable check points for showing documents. GET ORGANIZED, Canada!"
Pros: "The cabin service was amazing, the staff was so prompt and courteous, I am a frequent flyer on Air Canada and I love flying Air Canada."
Pros: "It was okay, but I feel no one really cares anymore it is just a Job....... on my flight from Canada to Florida on Feb 8 th it was a horrible experience. We were almost 4 hours late due to no crew or pilots. This is my last time flying with Air Canada. Way to much stress for people who have so much stress in there everyday lives. This should be a no stress way to fly. Just sayin"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the least pleasant flying experience I've ever had."
Cons: "1. They scheduled me for an overnight layover FOR NO REASON when there were multiple flights leaving earlier to my ultimate destination. 2. The airplane food gave me food poisoning and I had to spend the night in the ER. 3. My flight the next morning was delayed by 3hrs. Meanwhile, other flights to the same destination were taking off with no problem."
Cons: "The tv in business class weren't really working... stopping the movies by it self and I had to always restart them until I gave up on watching a movie!"
Pros: "All was well. Thanks"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "1. Boarding arrangement was very poor. 2. No zone number on our boarding passes. Although we were seated in seats 22,23, we were automatically pushed to zone 5 and forced to board last. 3. My wife and I were assigned two middle seats in two separate rows. 4. We were forced to check in our cabin baggage saying that there was lack of overhead space, but when we boarded among last passengers, there were a number of empty overhead bins. We could easily have saved 45 minutes in Toronto airport without having to wait for our bags."
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."
Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not aconfortable plane"
Pros: "Short trip, nothing too much to complain about or sing about."
Cons: "the entertainment system not functioning tjhat well."
Pros: "Got an upgraded seat without asking for it due to overbooking."
Cons: "Checking was more complicated than necessary. Was asked to use the machine to check in even though I made it clear I wanted to use the counter and there were only a few people waiting. Didn't get to watch a movie as I wasn't told you need to download the apps before getting on the plane."
Pros: "Boarding process was good"
Cons: "No free snacks offered"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and tried to get people with large luggage to check it."
Cons: "It took forever to load as people carried on huge bags that wouldn't fit in the overhead bins or under the seats. It took an extremely long time to get through American customs, and they were very rude, not caring if people missed connecting flights. They wouldn't add workers. Some almost missed the flight. P"
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: "The staff was very friendly. The flight attendants were attentive and very nice."
Cons: "There wasn't much to like. They left an hour late with no explanation and forced us to run through the airport to catch our connection, they lost my baggage, the in flight entertainment was awful. The Rouge Player had no current movies or TV and the food portions were very small for a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Everything excep boarding on return flight."
Cons: "Delay on return & boarding was really slow! Not sure if it was the computers or attendants."
Pros: "the plane crew were pleasant and kept us posted as to what was happening and causing us to be even later to leave."
Cons: "The staff on the ground were disorganized, uninformed, frazzled, dismissive and boarded us 1 hour late with no updates on why we were not boarding on time. Our flight was just sitting there on the ground. when people asked they blew us off. we were also crowded into the last, very narrow, terminal area in the Toronto airport (F89-F99 area). Too many flights departing at the same time, created limited space to sit/stand. One passenger pasted out, and had a seizure upon hitting the floor face first, because of the stuffed space, and lack of air movement and available seats. They did have a fan in the area but it didnt do much to circulate air. Once we boarded an hour late, the ground crew were nowhere to be found. We waited 30min on the plane for crew to board our luggage. We were told they left the area to work somewhere else, and would be back soon. Ugh! I would not fly Air Canada again, esp through Toronto again."
Cons: "Staff was rude. And I was seated next to an alchoholic"
Pros: "The beef and rice meal was really delicious and there were some good movies available for viewing. I enjoyed the cup noodles given during the flight."
Cons: "The USB port only worked for a few seconds at a time so my mobile phone would not charge in either my screen nor my neighbor's screen. Luckily I had my laptop to plug my phone into. During lift off I found someone's used headphones and a candy wrapper along with my neighbor's magazine's in my seat pocket."
Cons: "Missed my conection flight Bitirsh airline miss id someone at boarding process , let fly under my name to budapest. Huge securty mistake. I stock in London for 6 hours. My luggage was not locatible for the airlines. No compensation was offered"
Cons: "Nothing was free. Cmon we are traveling on a long leg from Paris to Sfo and this was only one part of the trip but food costs money, earphones cost money. Give me a break!!"
Pros: "Clean plane, attentive efficient staff, easy boarding."
Cons: "Flight staff forgot to pass out customs forms upon landing in Toronto - caused some confusion at customs entry."
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."
Cons: "Not sure if this is an Air Canada or a Toronto Pearson Airport issue, but the gate we flew out of was in a very small area with very limited seating. Long delay and no staff to assist or inform the passengers of the schedule delay. We will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "I liked flying in a small plane; with few people aboard; very uncomplicated."
Cons: "Bathroom on the plane was very small; although clean there was a bad odor, not sure it was from a previous occupant, the water or something, but it was most unpleasant."
Pros: "Good service, helpful flight attendants."
Cons: "Food was meager and not delicious. Need to download Air Canada app for movies caused some turmoil before the flight."
