Air Canada is a reputable airline, dedicated to supporting customers.
Seats were uncomfortable. Otherwise a good flight overall.
Not much… woman's bathroom was Disgusting at airport. AirCanada has become the worst ever. No respect at all for peoples luggage, throwing/smashing suitcases. Some employees need to find new jobs, their rude and not happy….. Not too mention AirCanada cannot seem to maintain any schedules at all… constantly changing flight times, gates, etc. It’s time that AirCanada either a) close the business b) replace all rude and luggage beating employees or 3) replace AirCanada’s upper management.. other words revamp it. I will drive and/or fly out of the USA for future flights until they get their company in order.
Plane was over an hour late.
Even with upgraded seat width is so small that overweight passengers next to me invaded what space I had. Difficult for a long flight.
Cons: "The plane was delayed due to waiting for people to clear customs."
Cons: "There were several announcements to download the Air Canada app in order to access in flight entertainment. They must have been 5-6 announcements about this. WiFi access was to start after take off in order to use the app. but was never available."
Pros: "Standard flight"
Cons: "Actually prepare the plane properly for take off"
Pros: "The stewardess was top-notch, professional and friendly"
Pros: "The flight was running late due to technical difficulties but they did take good care of us. Even the rescheduling of the connecting flight was easy."
Pros: "I was first in zone three to enter the craft. Still overhead bins!!"
Cons: "Worrying about overhead bins!"
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."
Cons: "Air Canada knew we were going to miss our connection, as the flight was delayed over and over, yet the staff on the ground insisted all connections would be made, there had been no missed connections all day. As soon as we got to Montreal, we were told due to ice in Montreal Air Canada had been cancelling flights and many connections couldn't be made all day. By that time it was too late to call Vancouver and set up alternative plans for the following day, which is when we would finally leave Montreal."
Pros: "Flight actually left Orlando early once all passengers were on board"
Cons: "few movies"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and a pleasure to have on board"
Cons: "Everything else. No entertainment unless you download their app, food is lower quality, and there was over 4 hours delay in departing! Never flying again with A.C. Rouge"
Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment or a boarding pass for my connecting flight"
Pros: "Good flight from Toronto."
Pros: "Considering it was a tiny aircraft the flight went very smoothly."
Cons: "It was a red eye so I tried to sleep but it was cold in the plane and they had run out of free blankets. They still had other blankets but they cost $17. We were offered water once on an 8 hour flight. The plane was not equipped with TV monitors.."
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "One flight attendant in particular stood out to me. She was extremely friendly and pleasant the whole flight. Flying is not always the easiest experience, especially during a 12 hour journey. Her positive attitiude definitely made it more bearable. Excellent customer service!"
Cons: "Certain members of crew did not offer the best flying experience. Ranged from being rude and curt with customers, and not being friendly and accommodating - need an attitude adjustment."
Pros: "Really good experience Was very happy with the service and the stuff Would definitely do my next flight with air Canada Keep up the good work guys."
Cons: "I was near the back of the plane and by the time the food cart came by, a lot of the items were sold out."
Pros: "Decent seats, crew was nice"
Cons: "Delays. Both on my outgoing and return trips. Air Canada was also extremely unorganized at Laguardia."
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
Pros: "Nothing !!!"
Cons: "My luggage did not arrived until 4 days in to my trip. I was told that some of my luggage ended up in China. It messed up the wedding ceremony that I went for. Gifts that I bought all got broken, the bag all torn. Air Canada refuse to upgrade my flight as a compensation. All their representatives did not help or provide any support. Other than stating "we are sorry". I and my family and friends will never fly with air Canada again."
Pros: "Prompt, efficient and friendly."
Pros: "Direct flight at convenient hours"
Cons: "Limited good entertainment Crew was not very friendly on that flight Service was minimal"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."
Pros: "Loved the premium economy seat! Would definitely fly again with Air Canada. The first meal was very good. The snack wasn't too exciting. Skipped last meal."
Cons: "Complimentary earphones! They hurt and the sound quality was horrible. I couldn't hear the words when I tried to watch a movie. I ended up having to borrow my kid's kiddie headphones. I would tell anyone flying w AC to bring their own ear/headphones!"
Pros: "Comfortable, quiet, fantastic technology"
Cons: "There was a delay in take off for more than an hour. The gate staff did not give any updates and one of them was particularly rude to a mother and her disabled teenage son. The son was becoming quite agitated because he did not understand what was going on and the gate staff person told the mother to keep him under control as if he wasn't there. It was poorly handled."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to engine problems..10 hours was a bit long though when you have limited vacation time."
Cons: "Wasn't offered a drink or food for 2 hours into the flight. Then when they reached me, all the options were sold out. I had crackers and hummus for lunch. I am pregnant and travelling alone with a toddler and was told by a flight attendant they were suppose to help me lift my bag. Nothing major, but left an unpleasant experience compared to Westjet."
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The food options were very limited. On such a long flight, I would recommend stocking up more."
Cons: "Only in Canada they make you remove headset for takeoff and landing."
Pros: "The airline personnel in Montreal was accommodating when several of us missed our connecting flights, automatically providing a hotel room and food vouchers for each of us."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because of a miscommunication with the refueling truck in Montreal before the flight came to Bradley. Then, we sat almost another hour on the tarmac at Bradley Airport because the flight plan was not approved. This caused me and several travelers (out of a small flight of approx. 20 people) to miss our connections in Montreal. Miscommunication seems to be normal for AirCanada, at least in Montreal (almost missed my connection on the way home, too). I will not fly again with this airline in the foreseeable future."
Pros: "The price, kayak beat every other website. Glad my friend suggested I try using it."
Cons: "Sometimes a little bit confusing for which airline im suppose to go when there was a connecting flight."
Pros: "The seating was alright."
Cons: "When we arrived at SFO the computer system was not working and it took forever to check in. Then we had delays after that. Our entertainment screens were also not working on our way there."
Cons: "11:45pm flight delayed by over two hours! Boarding was unorthodox and time consuming given the arrival of the delayed flight. Due to the delayed arrival of the aircraft at Los Angeles, the gate assignment was given to another aircraft and we had to board a bus and be ferried to a remote field at LAX that was literally 15 minutes a way by bus in order to board the flight to Toronto. The boarding process was incredibly time consuming and inconvenient. Flight ended up departing Los Angeles at 2:15am."
Pros: "Contacted by AC that flight from Hartford late leaving and only option for connection to Moncton was through Toronto instead of Montreal-agreed to this change"
Cons: "Plane arrived on time in Toronto but unable to approach terminal for 20 minutes since other plane in designated spot. Delay of 10 minutes to disembark once at terminal because of unexplained problem. Once at security gate D line of approx.. 30-40 people at dead standstill for 25 minutes (security issue?) . Missed connecting flight to Moncton because of above. Overnight stay in Toronto with hotel and meals approx. 35..00-400.00 extra cost. AC unwilling to pay for hotel. Lost following day's employment. Very disappointed in AC service in Toronto."
Pros: "I had not paid attention to know this was going to be such a tiny plane - 18 seats! Transborder flight, 1:20 hours, single seats so both window and aisle, two fantastic pilots (no flight attendants) who did everything, young, friendly and in charge, smooth trip, and I was in seat 2 and looking directly ahead seeing the pilots' view! I didn't need snacks or other entertainment. Will not hesitate to take this flight / Air Canada / small planes again."
Pros: "Efficient, vigilant and helpful crew"
Pros: "It got there"
Cons: "The Beechcraft 1900 is truly uncomfortable but the crew are usually very good. The bilingual safety announcements go on and on and on and on, truly tiresome and too loud."
Pros: "Comfortable Seating. Great Entertainment System. Watched some great shows and before I knew it. It was time to get off the plane. Great value for the amount paid."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Outrageous price for short trip zero amenities turbo prop"
Cons: "The flight was delayed because the inbound aircraft arrived late, but United didn't notify me until I was already at the airport. They would have known about the delay for hours already by that point, so I could have rebooked on a different flight. Instead I had to spend the night by the airport in Hartford or risk missing my connection and being stranded in Chicago."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable.. the service was responsive and friendly!"
Cons: "The actual flying part was smooth.. and all that flying can be expected.. my only problems were with flying thru Chicago.."
Pros: "Nice attendant."
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "What happened to complimentary snacks?!"
Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal!!!! So attentive and professional. Great customer service"
Cons: "Check in was with a new trainee and she was not sure how to put in our TSA - we got sent around to other people quite a bit. Plane was late and we almost did not make our connection in Dulles"
Pros: "getting to my destination"
Cons: "How does a 700 mi flight take 14hrs to accomplish. Fly United and find out."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."

Cons: "No frills. It wasn't needed but gotta think of something to put here."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seat and the empty seat between myself and the other passenger in my row. Staff were lovely and very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours.... missed my next flight, too dc, then rerouted to Philadelphia,and transferred to another airline, got to Dayton at 5 pm. I haven't had a vacation in four years, this was not the way I wanted to start. This was a trip from hell."
Pros: "Staff at the ticket counter was friendly enough to me personally, although was extremely reactionary to the restless crowd. I am glad that I was able to be rerouted to another destination where I could be driven home within three hours. Good food boxes on the plane (I had the Tapas). Friendly crew onboard."
Cons: "No offer for any sort of compensation for significantly altered travel. Even just a stock email acknowledgement would have been nice. Expensive wi-fi options on the plane, electrical outlets for only half of the plane."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Delays due to staffing issues led to missed connection and 7 hour wait for next available flight."
Pros: "I did not like any part of the trap maybe when they offered us some preferences that was included in the fly that's about it"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed the text message updates said we're not accurate"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled three times before they finally switched us to Delta. We missed an entire 2 days of our vacation that we haven't got reimbursed for. One of the agents that worked for United Airlines put her hands on my friend that I was traveling with and the police got involved. It was an horrible experience and no one was trying to accommodate us for our troubles what's so ever. I will NEVER fly United again. A waste of time and money."
Cons: "No complementary food is provided. Just some mini snacks."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was stuck between two very large men on a flight where there was apparently no air conditioning. I could barely breathe for how hot it was."
Pros: "I could not find anyplace on the United reservation to enter my TSA Pre check number. As a result, even thought I am 80, I had to wait in line and disrobe at Hartford CT airport."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no snack choices."
Pros: "I liked that I personally wasn't beaten in the face"
Cons: "I don't like United. They can suck a fat one."
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Poor service, not pleasant attitude from flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."
Pros: "Short lines, rapid boarding, on time, & courteous agents!!!"
Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."
Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "late which made me run to my next flight which was quite a hike"
Cons: "Plane was small ... Wifi not available on one flight"
Pros: "It was overall a wonderful flight"
Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No leg room even for a short person like me!"
Pros: "The United Wi-Fi that I paid for with my frequent flyer miles and the free entertainment via the United App"
Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "Was told no flights for two days after flight was cancelled. Then was told we needed to switch airports via taxi on our own. Then switched to Delta airlines where I had to pay another $60 to check my bags."
Cons: "Flight was delayed therefore missed my connection"
Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."
Pros: "I ended up going through Chicago. My return flight was delayed and I missed the connecting flight and had to stay in a hotel overnight. I am still waiting for the next flight home."
Pros: "Flight crew apologized for delayed flight and minimal amount of food / drink available on flight."
Cons: "Plane several hrs. late. Missed connecting flight to Sacramento. Flying to attend my Father's funeral. Ended up flying to SFO so I could be within reach of drive to Fresno. Now have had to pay for hotel near SFO because of late arrival. Also having to pay $200 extra for rental car because return flight departs from Sacramento and not able to return rental car from originating rental location."
Cons: "Unbearable to be on board, to be told that the plane had to carry more fuel so it was too heavy and that 5 people had to get off on 24th December!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Stayed on hold for over 2 hours to rebook."
Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived on time, not much to complain about"
Cons: "Not much in the way of leg room, only one drink and no peanuts/pretzels."
