Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was an hour late to VANCOUVER causing me to miss my flight to PDX getting me in 4 hours late to PDX"
Cons: "First time flying with Air Canada, mixups from the start of the journey until I finally got on my connecting flight"
Pros: "In flight service was overall very good."
Cons: "Service counter at check in Vancouver was terrible and unprofessional. Poor to very poor. Flight delayed with no announcement until you ready to board then they inform you your flight has been delayed but wouldn’t give reasons. Twice. Both connections."
Pros: "The price, the service:)"
Cons: "Cancelled one flight, then delayed another one because they were waiting for a pilot. They offered very little help, citing that they couldn’t control the weather, meanwhile WestJet is finding & paying for rooms, shuttle buses and taxis to make the delay more tolerable and less stressful. We could only watch and wish we were flying WestJet."
Pros: "Crew is good, and as well as food and entertainment are good"
Cons: "The seat is small size and it may make for Asian people. Since the port of HK made the flight on the run way for a long time, that delayed arrival"
Pros: "Second time on this flight and cant say enough good about the crew and food, they are fantastic. The movies are great."
Cons: "How do you loose bags between the gate and customs Being tied up in customs because they lost my bags when we arrived in Toronto. One and one half hour wait and the bags never arrived at the final destination for two more days.? The seats on a fifteen hour flight could stand to be better."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a bunch of varieties to keep you entertained for a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The delays were horrible!!! Had 4 flights with them. Seattle to Vancouver, Vancouver to Beijing, Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle. Seattle to Vancouver was delayed so long that we almost missed our connecting flight to Beijing. Because of that delay our baggage missed the Vancouver to Beijing flight and we had nothing for 2 days!!! It was a hassle to get some kind of compensation and just having to wear the same clothes for 2 days. Also the Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle flights were also delayed"
Pros: "Entertainment system available at each seat."
Cons: "Tight seat space."
Pros: "The food and the crew."
Cons: "The choice of movies was not as many or as good as other airlines that fly between HKG and PDX, such as Delta and Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "The pod were set up well. The crew service was very responsive. All-in-all pretty good."
Cons: "Getting baggage to and thru US Customs cut it real close to connection to LaGuardia."
Pros: "Everything went smooth no hitches at all people very nice"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "The entertainment system was fine as far as selection goes."
Cons: "The stewardesses were ranged from okay to outright grumpy though I understand how difficult it is to always be pleasent when working long hours in a confined space in the customer service industry they still failed me on this."
Pros: "E mail confirmation , on time!"
Cons: "Food , not consumable. Limited water for a such a long flight. Poor choices for the entertainment. Crew semifreindly.washrooms are not maintained during the flight."
Pros: "good movie selection"
Cons: "The seats are small and I was wedged in the middle. There was little to no water service. Only one drink cart and as I was at the back it took 1 hour and 45 minutes into the flight to get a glass of water. Terrible."
Cons: "An hour delay and mix up at which loading gate. Received ten minutes of free wi fi as compensation. Food would have been better as wi fi didn't work."
Pros: "all good, air canada is so much better than any us airlines"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had to pay again for the priority seats on the rescheduled flights, but still have not gotten refund on the priority seats on the cancelled flights."
Pros: "Plane and crew were great"
Cons: "There's a strong reason why the Asian airlines have greater customer satisfaction. I flew Eva Air, Cathay Pacific and China Airlines before. Their flight attendants literally walk back and forth non-stop during most of the time in the air to serve the passengers. Their food are much better. Added benefit: their flight attendants are much younger and prettier!"
Cons: "We had a terrible time trying to get in contact with Air Canada. We spent literally hours on hold and multiple times we hung up without any answer. Customer service needs to drastically improve."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and prompt. They kept us informed and acted very professional."
Pros: "On time. Luggage arrived within minutes. Great Service."
Pros: "SEATS ARE VERY TIGHT"
Pros: "The entertainment/media center. The built-in digital movie, TV, music center was excellent! It was the only redeeming aspect of the flight. NOTE: one person in our party had a faulty unit that the volume went out of control when the crew spoke - she stopped using it as a result"
Cons: "The least comfortable flight I've taken for a long trip. My family complained constantly also, including my daughter that travels for pleasure more than I do. The seats seem impossible to get comfortable in. I'm 6 feet tall and 175 lbs and the seat is too narrow to try to do anything that sit up straight. The angle of the seat to the bottom of the seat in front make it difficult to find a comfortable position. Once I got my legs under the seat in front of me my own seat pad pushed into my thighs limiting the blood flow. The flight attendants on the flight there and the flight back seemed like they hated their job. Never cracked a smile and seemed to be trying to make it through their chores. They ALL seemed unhappy and stressed. The food was the worst we've ever had on any flight, domestic or international. The sandwich for lunch was TERRIBLE. Out of 5 people none of us finished it. We tore most of the puffy odd bread off of it which left the meat which lacked any discernible flavor - making it taste fake. Having visited a couple of 3rd world countries on this flight we felt more at risk of eating bad food on the airline than on the streets of Hanoi. First and last time we'll fly Air Canada."
Pros: "I've been taking this flight for many years. The flight times, crew, and boarding process are all excellent. The food is always very good for a plane flight with plenty of options. When awake, the new seats are a pleasure and I especially appreciate the extra storage areas."
Cons: "By definition, this flight is long-haul with the necessity to sleep on it. In executive class, they have recently changed the "seats". The old ones were too cramped (narrow) for a 6 ft guy. The new ones are not only narrow but the table that telescopes down restricts the vertical height when the seat is fully down. It is literally impossible to lay on your side. This was a horrendous design and unacceptable for a sleeping flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in bulkhead, large overhead cabin space, friendly staff, lots of water offered"
Cons: "No extra blankets available. Would have preferred more Asian cuisine on HK/Toronto flight. Staff too busy with full economy cabin, so not responsive when pressed call button. Movie and TV selection not as extensive as Cathay, though kids same games much better."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, flight was smooth and the service was great!"
Cons: "I don't have anything negative to say about this flight!"
Pros: "flight was late"
Cons: "it was late"
Cons: "Food not good, and entertaiinment center did not work"
Cons: "Did not pay attention when serving meal to the people passing by not asking until call them back"
Pros: "Aircraft too crowded, travelling last year on Air Canada from Vancouver to Sydney on a Boeing 777, seating was 3 - 3 - 3, very pleasant in economy class. Flight from Vancouver to Hong on a Boeing 777, seating was 3 - 4 - 3, very crowded, narrow seats, almost everyone shoulders touching, aisles very narrow. On the inbound journey a few hours our of Hong Kong the announcement was made, that all the toilet holding tanks were almost full, please do not go to the toilet unless one had too, Where else could one go?. Would think some than twice to travel on this flight again. Cathay Pacific use same aircraft Boeing 777, seating was 3 - 3 - 3, aH that's better."
Cons: "Staff were very friendly"
Pros: "Prem. Economy class is pretty decent, love it!"
Cons: "food can improve some"
Pros: "It was part of Star Alliance (although they should be ashamed to claim it.)"
Cons: "Air Canada SQUEEZES 10 seats across on this 777 (I've never had more than 9 on any other airline) and it is very cramped and uncomfortable (you'd better like your seat mates because you will be rubbing elbows and shoulders with them for many hours, especially on this 12 hour flight. They have very little leg room as well. This is the most miserable long haul airplane I have ever flown on, and I fly a lot. Discount airline planes are more comfortable than this one. It was over an hour after we had our meal until they got around to picking up our trays."
Pros: "The plane was not full so there was lots of room to stretch out, very nice."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were professional and polite and took exxtremely good care of us."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing and the gate agents were extremely rude. I attempted to upgrade and the gate agent couldn't figure out the price diiference in fares. I offered to pay a flat rate per ticket which was much more than I had paid to upgrade on the way to Hong Kong and they said the computer wouldn't let them. The comfort of the plane was terrible. I had the same seats on Cathy Pacific and had at least 2" more leg room."
Cons: "Bad service"
Pros: "Got on as standby - very helpful staff"
Pros: "The crew is very friendly and accommodating. Food was decent. We got thier latest plane with great little pods in business class. Overall it was pleasant."
Pros: "Seats were pretty wide and comfy."
Cons: "I was traveling overseas over a 10 day period. The inbound and outbound entertainment was exactly the same. It's pretty slim pickings when it's over 12 hour flights....."
Pros: "aircraft was new 787 - very spacious with excellent head and leg room. Plane ride was smooth and with very little roughness even during turbulence. Take off and landing extremely smooth."
Cons: "As a rule airplane food is not the best. Having the rolls warmed would be nice."
Pros: "Had heard a lot of negative comments about Air Canada online. There was no evidence of it."
Cons: "Food. The quantity was less. Even an eleven year old child was feeling hungry."
Pros: "This is 15 minutes so not much ever goes wrong. Get to altitude and then start decent."
Pros: "It is my first time to fly 15 hours. It is a bit challenging"
Cons: "Some crew members have porker face all the time, not friendly."
Pros: "Boarding and on-time performance"
Cons: "Media absolutely sucked. Seat was not fully functional. Air crew was not on top of their game."
Pros: "I was given an awesome seat with leg room. Slept like a baby the whole time!"
Cons: "The seats with leg room are usually given to couples with a baby, but I slept through with earphones on and did not notice a single cry."
Pros: "12 minute flight"
Cons: "After waiting several hours in Kamloops for a plane to arrive, we found the same situation in Vancouver. We waited 30 minutes for a 12 minute flight."
Pros: "The seat was to tight."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable space, good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Breakfast options were not good."
