Other passengers continue to be the hardest part of flying now.

Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled and rebooked with a connecting flight."
Cons: "After landing in Newar. One had to exit into the terminal and in order to connect, I had to go through TSA again, and the line was way too long. I had 2 hrs between flights and was able to make the connection, but I'm not sure if I only had one hour... I would have probably missed my connection."
Pros: "On time Nice crew Smooth flight"
Cons: "The movie selection was not very good. No recent movies available. Also in the beginning, about half and hour, the entertainment system did not work."
Pros: "Quick easy flight. Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The flight was so not packed. There were rows and rows of empty seats. I had a row to myself to sleep on, it was amazing."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Especially breakfast"
Pros: "Was confusing because united and air Canada were involved so had to triple check what airline and terminal we'd arrive in back in states."
Cons: "Hot day small hot plane for awhile"
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: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."

Cons: "limited leg room"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Easy flight good crew"
Cons: "Lost our baggage"
Pros: "All was well. Thanks"
Pros: "Check in was smooth"
Cons: "I find it unacceptable that 1 bag was free on the inbound flight, but I had to pay extra to check the same bag on my return."
Cons: "Air Canada also bumped our flight to 3 hrs earlier."
Pros: "Entertainment options were plentiful -- from TV to movies, podcasts, audio books and games. Boarding was easy and there were plenty of bathrooms aboard. Very, very smooth landing in Vancouver. Easily the best I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Leg room was average for these types of flights. Wasn't a huge fan of the food served; at least one meal was Korean fare."
Cons: "Not aconfortable plane"
Cons: "Food not included on long flights. I've travelled in third world countries where snacks have been provided on one hour flight. Had to wait for 1/2 hour to disembark."
Pros: "Boarding process was good"
Cons: "No free snacks offered"
Pros: "Service and comfort. Friendly and responsive staff"
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: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew."
Cons: "I was held aside at the customs area and had a difficult time figuring out what was going on. Signage was less than helpful, and staff were unaware of why I was being held. After over 30 minutes during which the gate staff could only tell me to wait and watch for my initials on the electronic board, the staff learned that some bags on my arrival flight had been accidentally diverted to Canadian customs rather than US customs, and passengers could not proceed to connecting flights until our bags were located. The customer service staff then worked very hard on our problem. I was instructed to re-book my flight, since by now the doors were about to close - but that customer service person could not re-book me, and I had to queue up again for another agent. When I got to the desk, that agent was able to get me approved to board my flight sans bag, ran me to the front of the Immigration line, and got me to my gate in time to board. I deeply appreciate her assistance, as my family was already on the plane."
Cons: "Minutes and minutes of ads on the app that you have to download on your own device. Flight attendants that manage to bump into your arm every single time they walk up the aisle even though you're using the arm-rest. None of the flights left on-time and they lost my luggage. Really got the "bare minimal effort" feeling from the crew."
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"
Cons: "Food can be much better and entertainment options as well."
Pros: "Very comfortable and a wide range of new films to keep me entertained the whole flight"
Cons: "Airplane food is hard to be better than okay. On par with other companies and the snacks handed out were welcomed, the hot meal was only edible."
Pros: "Air Canada is not a goo Air Lines for customer service."
Cons: "I do not like there customer service policy."
Cons: "Staff was rude. And I was seated next to an alchoholic"
Pros: "The good, each seat has a tv."
Cons: "Waiting over 72 hours and my bag has still not arrived. Both planes were delayed, even with the 2nd flight being delayed I still had to run in order to make it. Being on time is not something Air Canada has figured out."
Cons: "Not offered earphones"
Pros: "we made it"
Cons: "small plane and the noise"
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: "The idea of READ BOOKS via the in-plane entertainment system. Very limited book choices so not of interest, and often interrupted as the system kept dropping. Great opportunity though to expand Vs boring and mindless TV shows and low rated straight to video view movies."
Cons: "Delayed, food (best not to touch), seat PC power charge plugs didn't work, was NOT allowed to use wireless PC mouse !!! (1st ever in 20 years of off-line PC use to work on planes), the seats were old and smelled, the in-plane access to movies plug-in didn't work, the TV shows kept disconnecting, crew had no idea how to correct, Montreal airport was dirty and poorly maintained, the one restaurant with service had the worst food I ever ate with promised internet access and PC / Phone charging facilities NOT working. Amazing stuff !!. So awful it now seems funny !...Almost missed my days in and out Sanaa Airport in Yemen with Yemen Air !!!"
Cons: "Served dinner too late. Only one beverage offer on a 6 hour flight. My companions luggage was lost and it took CA more than 48 hours to deliver. Won't be seeking travel on AC anytime soon."
Pros: "Price and schedule."
Cons: "Price and schedule."
Cons: "Moving through security and customs in the Toronto airport was incredibly slow, with 4 or 5 checkpoints, all with lines. Staff were polite but there were not enough of them. We almost missed our connecting flight, and our bags apparently did miss it, because they have not yet arrived in Chicago (see previous comments). Air Canada should have seen the problem in terms of timing with the connecting flight and expedited better. Will try to avoid Air Canada in the future, especially if there are connections in Toronto."
Cons: "Canceled flight Toronto to vancouver BC missed our connecting flight, no option from airlines to provide accommodation or alter net transportation to final destination (Portland OR). Has to spend additional money and time traveling due to that. Supper inconveniences by it!"
