It's ok flying ANA. I'm going to fly again with this airlines and endorsed them to my friends

Food from Philippines to Japan was excellent but served a little late. Food from Japan to USA WAS LOUSY and they only served hot food one time for breakfast which means 2 hours away from arrival. Hot food meal should have been served 2 hours after boarding in an airport where everything ia closed after 9 pm. Some of the connecting passengers did not have a hot meal for at least 12 hours or maybe more.

Pros: "Entire crew members, food, drink, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic & would have been better if I could get a aisle seat as I requested otherwise I didn’t have to wake up too often my both side passengers!! We were few Indian passengers missing our Hindi movies..."
Pros: "Great customer experience is what look for in any service, ANA delivers this in abundance."
Pros: "the ANA folks at the departure check-in went out of their way to get me on my flight. You see, I got to the airport right before boarding. Their response? They literally escorted me through security, waited for me at the immigration checkpoint, and brought me to the boarding gate! I love ANA! :)"
Cons: "If flight wasn’t delayed."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The boarding"
Cons: "It was a short hopper so didn't mind much. I actually slept on this plane."
Pros: "Everything was just perfect"
Cons: "1. Missed our flight connection in Chicago because of delayed take-off from Tokyo. We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later. 2. ANA flight attendants were not very well versed in the English language. Very hard to communicate our needs."
Pros: "Very comfortable flights. Exceptional crew on and off the planes. Great food and drink/snack options. Lots of entertainment options as well."

Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew did not accept tip. Food could be better."
Pros: "Staff were friendly from check in to disembark. Food was quite good. Boarded on time and people were accomodating of one another in the entry and exit process."
Cons: "I was travelling with my twin 11 yr olds one of whom has limited sight. They normally only allow early boarding of young children, but we need extra time as I have 2 children to organise and my daughters sight dictates that i have to assist her. Other passengers were not impressed. I would like the airlines to take the initiative to have all children boarded early as if we board with everyone else, the aisles will be blocked as my children try to get organised."
Pros: "The seats in business class are excellent. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. I'd fly ANA again especially on the 787."
Cons: "The entertainment is pretty limited , and the food selection is limited for western food."
Pros: "Good food and cabin service. Accommodating in connecting flight arrangements."

Pros: "Excellent food. Very nice service."
Pros: "Service was great."

Cons: "The premium economy seat was about average. Comfort okay but not the best for sleep."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "ANA is always on time and the crew is always attentive."
Cons: "The plane used for this flight was small for me. I am 6-4 and there's not as much leg room as in the larger planes. I always have to order fruit because the meals are only Asian style dishes. I would be happy with a sandwich."
Pros: "The stewardess constantly walked the aisle looking to assist the passengers...no disappearing act like one finds on other airlines. I was in business class, so the food was very tasty."
Cons: "Seats seem extra small, narrow and short. As a window seat there was very little room between the seat and the wall. Food and entertainment average to below average (compared with Qantas, Singapore Airlines)"
Cons: "Pretzels"
Pros: "Efficent, courteous and reliable."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"
Pros: "Aircraft was new and spacious"
Cons: "Crew forgot to ask us for drinks upon serving us meals. I also had to repeat my order 3 times."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean lavatory"
Cons: "Had a chance to select seats only for return flight Seats were too narrow"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "The flight was less busy than usual (it was an Easter Sunday departure) and so service was a bit more relaxed and friendly than usual instead of just efficient. Left gate a few minutes early and arrived 20 min early in Tokyo. Flight time is pretty good - 8pm departure which gives time for a relaxed day sightseeing in Dusseldorf before going to the airport in the late afternoon, Arrival in Tokyo is about 2pm which would be a good time to check in to hotels and relax. Food was good - dinner after take-off and a brunch-type meal a few hours before landing. Entertainment system is also very good although I'd flown a lot recently so seen the films I wanted to see already. Sometimes ANA are just "good" but this one was the best one I've flown recently."
Cons: "Surprised that their recently acquired 787s don't all have WLAN! Wanted to do some work ... but ... maybe enforced disconnection is a good thing sometimes :)"
Pros: "Messed everything up!!!"
Cons: "Messed everything up!!!"
Pros: "A transfer flight was delayed but ANA did some special logistics behind the scenes that made us catch our transfer. Very happy/impressed."
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane."
Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Pros: "I liked the plane! Beautiful and new, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was a pleasure to ride in. Staff was as pleasant and helpful as they always are on ANA and despite the long delay due to an engine repair, the ANA staff conducted themselves incredibly professionally."
Cons: "It wasn't such a bad experience for me but the plane did have a mechanical failure and the part was not in stock in Cambodia so had to be flown in. That resulted in a 24 hour delay. The ANA staff were excellent and did take care of us well."
Pros: "My Marine son and I traveled ANA from Okinawa to Hiroshima. We had to be bussed out to our plane but it was so worth it because we were on a Star Wars plane."
Cons: "My son and I had made separate reservations and they lost his. however he was able to get on the flight and they sat us together."
Pros: "Great service, everyone was happy to do their job"
Pros: "Entertainment system, comfort of the seats, staff, food, basically everything!"
Cons: "It said that the plane was capable of WiFi, but the flight didn't have it, probably just because the route is too short."
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The captain failed to update the passengers and crew of significant change in flight path and delay. The flight flew off course for almost 30 minutes, while the flight attendants required everyone to remain seated due to supposed turbulence. We felt no turbulence for almost 25 mins. No update was given to passengers while we flew far off course. I motioned to the flight attendant, who was seated due to turbulence warning, to ask why we were off-course, but she could not get up. Many passengers were pointing to the flight path animation, to point out that we were flying straight north, instead of southeast. The flight attendant then called the captain for an update, and then the captain finally made an announcement about weather delays around shanghai."
Pros: "I would like to never fly through China again"
Cons: "I had a 9 hour layover in Beijing and they still couldn’t get my bag on the plane to Seattle"
Pros: "For the price, Hainan is a good value."
Cons: "I find that hainan just isn’t as “polished” as perhaps other air carriers in Asia are such as Cathay, Thai or Singapore"
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Taking-off and landing were very smooth. The crew are friendly and polite. They even served lunch for this two hours flight. I like the windows that changes color. You can have a good nip even during the day."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than two hours. Upset with it."
Cons: "Kiosks in Guangzhou would not accept passport, perhaps because I am a foreigner. This forced me to wait in line with checked bag customers, though I only needed a boarding pass."
Pros: "I did not like it."
Cons: "Don't offer a flight for an overseas destination that you cannot fly to. my flight was canceled so I did not need this connecting flight and had to wait two months for the ticket money to be fully refunded, after many phone calls."
Pros: "787 Plane, leg space, polite and beautiful staff + service."
Cons: "Need to improve on food"
Pros: "Seating was Comfortable."
Cons: "Cancel the day of the flight. Had to leave the next day."
Pros: "Great crew. Food. Lay flat bed."
Pros: "You get what you pay for with the cheap tickets. That’s all I can say about it. Comfort was OK when you sit in the premium economy. Nobody next to me and not crowded like the back of the plane."
Cons: "You’d think someone on board would speak English. The crew were just morons. They also lost my bags in the connection. Good luck dealing with baggage claim...."
Pros: "Was not told that I needed a visa for connexting flightsbin China so I was not allowed to board and had to buy a last minute $2400 ticket"
Cons: "Was not told that I needed a visa for connexting flightsbin China so I was not allowed to board and had to buy a last minute $2400 ticket"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be more friendly and more eye contact."
Pros: "crew service was good and friendly"
Cons: "baggage unloading was very slow."
Pros: "flight crew is pleasant. cabin and toilets are clean."
Cons: "I missed my connection to Washington DCA. Had to rebook for another overnight flight on United, which gets me into IAD in the morning. That is an extra expense for me. Hainan Airlines would not provide overnight accommodation in Seattle. poor selection of English language movies/TV"
Pros: "Direct flight with cheap price. Good entertainment program selection."
Cons: "Small seat. Only serving two meals during a 14 hour flight."
Pros: "The food was fine"
Cons: "Terribly delayed, they could do better informing people about why we got so many hours delayed. When we got to Shanhai there was not HAinan support at all for the lodging the airline provides for the connection."
Pros: "Service was awesome"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment has a limited selection"
Pros: "Crew of airplane serve with good skills."
Cons: "Everything is good except Wuhan Tian He airport the Hai nan airline check in few people need improve the knowledge and also attitute."
Cons: "We arrived from O'Hare to Seattle and needed wheelchair assistance as I am disabled. When we approached the gate to ask for wheelchair assistance down the ramp to board the plane I was asked if I really needed the wheelchair. I thought that was an odd question to someone that walks with a cane and could be seen walking from the restroom to the gate which would have been a quick one minute jaunt for me 5 years ago but took at least ten minutes from the restroom to the gate. I was trying to figure out in my head how I was going to attempt this long walk while other travelers would have been quickly boarding ahead of me. This was my first of many trips to China to see family but will definitely be my last trip with Hainan. I was extremely disappointed in the way I was treated - is this the way all passengers with disabilities are treated?"
Pros: "The space and the full flat layout was great for getting through an11 hr flight after an overnight 5 hr flight that was followed by a 4 hr flight. The cabin service was very good and their English was very good. They also did all that was possible to get us to our connection which was a short change."
Cons: "The only downside was we couldn’t have the bags checked through SEA and boarding passes had to be issued at Seattle changing airlines. The connection was only 1:50, with getting back in the country that’s too short. With the express connection cards for the lines good people at customs we still had jogged th last 150 yards after hearing last call to board."
Pros: "Product was good; single seats in the aisles, full recline, lots of storage."
Cons: "Terrible movie selection, food was mediocre with only one dumpling served but tons of noodles."
Cons: "Flight from beijing to seattle was delayed so missed fight to salt lake city. Now have to take midnight flight"
Cons: "My remote didn’t work so I could see show but the headphones didn’t work either so I could hear them. I asked the flight attendant about this and got a “sorry, it’s broken” response. This also meant that my reading light was in operable as well as the flight attendant call light so I had to borrow my neighbors. Not the best experience or resolution."
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to check in online, and so couldn't get a good seat"
Pros: "The flight went smoothly, once we began."
Cons: "Letting passengers bring 3 carry on bags crowding me on a middle seat for over 12 hours"
Cons: "The checkin counter experience was not good. I had business class tickets but was checkin at an Economy counter resulting in my boarding pass not being for business class so when I went in to immigration lines and throughout the rest of the process I did not receive priority that Business class should have received. In addition when I enquirer about TSA preaplroval at the counter I was told Chicago does not have preaplroval at Terminal 5 but in reality passengers with TSA-pre were being sent through the lines without having to take off their shoes and laptops etc. overall the checkin process should have been much more informative."
Pros: "The friendly staff and the smooth trip."
Cons: "All the plastic waste created by the lunch."
Cons: "I dint know i needed a chinese visa to travel to shanhai, My flight began on denver then seattle and from seattle i wasnt able to fly to china. I received no help at all, all they did was cancel my booking not received any kind of refund and i got stuck in seattle, i had to buy new tickets to go back to denver after losing my flights and not getting a dime back, this is unacceptable!"
Pros: "Flight crew was very considerate in taking care of my father so that he had a safe, happy flight back to China."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful"
Cons: "Headphones provided didn't work very well"
Cons: "No good movies Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The lounge in Beijing is spa like. Set up with lots of personal spaces and delicious food.Nespresso latte machine.On the plane, Wide, Fully flat seats. Quilted comforters instead of thin polyester sheets. They even offer pajamas and bed making! Choices for food were very broad to fit all palates. Great selection of international films from all over the world. Our plane had a dedicated chef (!) preparing food fresh both ways. At the end, she helped with cleanup. Bathrooms were cleaned frequently. Flight attendants were very attentive. Best sleep I have had on a plane"
Cons: "You are not allowed to use your smartphone on the plane, even in airplane mode. Apparently this is a Chinese airline rule. I had downloaded books from the library to listen and read, but could not. However did see some great movies"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment, and the food."
Cons: "I didn't like that I felt invisible and had to remind the staff for a simple glass of juice. When giving out snacks and food they looked over me several times and didn't even ask after they had served the other two people if I needed anything. I even asked in Chinese. Just was weird and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Loved that they showed season 1 of "Atlanta" in its entirety!"
Pros: "This was my second experience with H.A., the first being in February. The entertainment selections are quite extensive and I enjoy them, and they do a good job boarding people. Plus I like the comfort bag (sleep mask, ear plugs, toothbrush and toothpaste, etc.) that H.A. provides."
Cons: "I found this trip lacking. First, the gate at which we were to wait for the airplane did not have enough seats and so many people had to look elsewhere. Further, the lights were out, giving a shadowed, unused-like quality. Fortunately boarding took place relatively quickly, but I was very disappointed with the arrival at the gate. I look forward to the meals that H.A. provides during the flight, but neither the dinner nor the breakfast main meals were tasty. I've had four trips now -- to and from China twice -- and this was by far the worst. I hope it is not repeated, H.A. really did a good job on my flight to the U.S. in January 2017. Further, the seat felt cramped and it was hard to relax. But the main problem was that H.A. actually ran out of soda towards the end of the flight, which was a real negative given that many of us were thirsty at that time. I found the show of sympathy from the Chinese flight attendant rather forced on this issue. NOT good."
Pros: "The service was wonderful, the food good and the entertainment package very diverting. Made the long flight seem short."
Pros: "Very good service.Much Better than American Air ,Air Canada .KLM or Lufthansa"
Pros: "I like the 5 hours wait in Shanghai and missing my flight to Kiev. Thank all those employees who did nothing but pushing responsibilities around."
Cons: "EVERYTHING HOW BOU DAT?"
Pros: "The seat was okay, and the food was nice."
Cons: "Plane arrive very late, and I have to wait quite a long time for lift off. Due to late arrival, they ask me to wait 24 hour to take next flight to Bangkok. They bring me to free hotel, but the hotel was not good. Also, Hainan Airline is located in Terminal 2, not 3 which is quite old and ticketing and translating was annoying... this was my worst flight experience ever....."
Pros: "It is free."
Cons: "The access seats are limited for free users and it can be discontinued. It is not good for someone to use it for the job or trading stock. It is ok if we can pay small fee to use it."
Pros: "Love their sweet service!! The seat is comfortable."
Cons: "My chair is somehow broken since the earphone cannot plug in. Not allowed to use the mobile phone and no wifi."
Pros: "Seat pitch better than many others in economy. Free inflight WiFi was great!"
Cons: ""Hollywood" and "New Releases" sections were empty, so only two English language movies for a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "The food it good"
Pros: "The plane chosen was good spacious model."
Cons: "The choice of food was bad for me because I am a vegetarian. They had dishes with all meat through it. :-("
Pros: "Great! Love this flight,"
Pros: "Every aspect was top notch for an economy seat. The staff was attentive, the flight was super smooth, the entertainment decent and the seats comfortable. On time and hassle free! Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "The fight were really crowded; the crew were so busy; the restroom was not available most of time"
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable seating and reasonable variety of food."
Cons: "No information about transfers, had to transfer own luggage. On the flight back it was rescheduled the night before but not enough time for transfer and so I and many others missed our connection flights and were stranded at the airport for six hours. There weren't enough staff to handle the situation and rebook or help with customers who were clearly stressed and drum up. This was really disappointing."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, but what spoiled it totally was the fact that the itinerary was changed from my booking and I had to stay 12 hours in Shanghi airport and be 5 hours late to my work on the next day. I will never book through your website again, very disappointing."
Pros: "They reimbursed us 500RMB for the flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 10 hours. During this time, the only food we received was a hot pocket and some cookies. They offered no explanation for the delay and did not even alert us of the delay through email or any other communications, so I did not find out until I landed in Seattle from New York."
Cons: "Air Canada needs to update it's entertainment systems. On flights to and from my destination both the audio jack and screen were broken. Also, the flight did not receive any salads, leaving this vegan with slim pickings. Get it together, Air Canada!"
Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"
Pros: "Staff are very nice"
Cons: "Delay in flight of more than 45 minutes"
Pros: "Boarding was good and fast"
Cons: "The audio jack was not good thus I had to keep it steady with my hand to be able to listen to movie"
Cons: "if the flight is on time. I was delay more than 10 hours"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Please train this guys for customer service and fix there attitude."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Very organized crew for the boarding on instructing passengers with carry-ons etc for the overhead storage compartments. Flight left on time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen was malfunctioning. Very frustrating trying to watch a movie to the point I turned it off & read a book . If you are going to offer the the service make sure it works."
Pros: "The tvs were nice."
Cons: "The people in front of us reclined their seats and there was no leg room. The flight was severely delayed by an hour and a half making us miss our connection."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Not enough time to the flight from Halifax to west plam beach"
Pros: "LITERALLY NOTHING Trashiest airline in the world"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly with this flight. It boarded on time. The crew were all very friendly. I enjoyed the entertainment selections and found a tv show that I had been wanting to see. I managed to watch 2 episodes and look forward to watching more of the same show on my flight back. I ended up having the 2 seats to myself which was great. Extra legroom. I have no complaints at all."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."
Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "When the flight was already late (it arrived late), they delayed takeoff so that many people, including me, missed their connections."
Cons: "When there is a delay, even when weather related, show some empathy and feed stranded passengers!"
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Almost 2 hour delay in Halifax until 1:30 am but Air Canada lounge closed at 11 anyway."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Kayak did not allow us to reserve seats, and the seats we received were not together, even though we purchased the seats six months in advance. My seat was at the front facing rear wards, with a non-tilting seat and little foot room."
Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Seating in a double rather than triple layout."
Cons: "Delay of almost an hour on the runway because of a mechanical problem, after being asked to turn off cell phones and so we couldn't notify those meeting us. Our flight arrival did not appear on the board at Pearson , thus complicating our communication with those meeting us. Baggage was slow being unloaded. Will seriously consider flying to Hamilton with West Jet next time we return from Halifax."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
Pros: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Pros: "The t flight was completely uneventful-the best kind."
Cons: "Our flight from Halifax to Los Angeles via Toronto should have left at 3:15 on Sunday so that we could arrive back in Los Angeles by 10:14 pm. Instead the flight was delayed and left 200 people stranded and waiting in line for customer service. Because I did not have cell service in Canada, I was forced to wait 2 hours in line only to have the agent at the counter make me talk to an agent on the phone. Prior to that, we were shocked that one of the only two agents at the counter left the counter to talk to people in line behind us instead of servicing the customers first come first serve. When I asked him to please return to the counter to help the next person in line, he mumbled that that was not what he wished to do. Meanwhile, all flights out of Toronto were fully booked that night. The delayed flight finally left at 1:30 am. Had Air Canada notified its customers about the 10 hour delay, we could have spent that time in Halifax. Both my husband and I were very disappointed in how AC handled the whole situation. Both the counter agents and the phone agent were unhelpful in offering us options."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

Pros: "when I landed"
Cons: "First off the the plane was mid takeoff and stopped which terrified the passengers and crew. Then we learned the plane had technical issues which lead to a 50 minute delay, then air canada did nothing as in terms of compensation. My audio jack for the entertainment system was broken, seat 19F on flight 617 by the way... Then I got up to use the washroom and when I came out I had to wait 30 minutes at the back of the plane standing until the servers were done serving drinks and snacks/food. Then the landing was terrifying as the plane was swooping/shaking much more than normal, even the board crew looked a bit worried. Could NOT wait to be done of the flight, one of my worst ever."
Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
Pros: "chairs a little bigger"
Cons: "the staff are indifferent to a point of being rude. The food is dismal and their cost cutting measures really reflect how bad it has become. It functions like a budget airline now. Try to learn a thing or two from the airlines like Cathay Pacific, Singapore airlines and Qatar airlines."
Cons: "I asked a crew member to find me a empty space near me so that i don't need to store my luggage in the way way back, and she said she was too short to open and close those overhead bins. SERIOUSLY, HOW DID YOU GET THE DAMN JOB"
Cons: "The entertainment very bad the tv was yellow"
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
