Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seats. Terrible food."
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:)"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, inflight entertainment was solid. Flight attendants were great all around."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours, caused me to miss my connecting flight in Vancouver. I landed at 6pm and they told me my flight would leave at 8am the next day even through multiple flights were available to get me to portland that evening."
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: "Cheap tickets at short notice."
Cons: "Inability to check in online and via machine in transit. Cheap flight gets you cheap service. My entertainment console did not work and had to ask crew to reboot it. Many others had same problem. Food is below meh. My travel was Air Canada all the way but portions provided/partnered with Alaska Air. I was not able to check in for both portions of my travel from HKG to YVR to SEA."
Cons: "Amenity kit in Premium economy sub par. Ear buds inadequate. Need noise cancelling headphones for the entire plane. On line "best price guarantee" is hogwash and completely untrue when tested."
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: "The long flight had 2 meals and a snack."
Cons: "some turbulence."
Pros: "Entertainment system available at each seat."
Cons: "Tight seat space."
Pros: "Interior of the air craft basically clean. Arrangements To air craft are in order."
Cons: "Air circulation and air conditioning is lower than Normal. Is kind of humid. My section are lower Than other sections."
Pros: "Staff remember special requests"
Cons: "Generally not friendly, bathrooms were filthy from the time we got on the plane. Everything is dirty bad smells everywhere. Delayed, no space, no good food, no fruit, so many little things missing, limited entertainment options. LBP airport is the most inefficient airport in the world, always wait forever for my luggage with lots of rude staff everywhere. Some 400-600 people were trying to leave the airport through two lines to pass off the last sheet which is unnecessary. They should take a lesson from other airports like Hong Kong and Singapore. Absolutely despise going through Toronto airport as well as Air Canada gates when departing."
Cons: "THe food as usual on AC flights is only passable. . The warm rolls as advertised are ice cold. Some of your flight attendants can often be rude to customers and many could benefit from attending Weight Watchers as they can scarcely make it down the aisles and often bump into customers."
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: "The plane is new."
Cons: "Meal needs to improve. All Nippon airways served much better meal."
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 blankets and pillow provided to every single customer. The food was actually pretty good except for the breakfast meal could have been a little better."
Cons: "Pretty much just the breakfast meal and the buttons on the armrest, the person to our right kept accidentally turning on my light and changing my volume with her elbow."
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 flight was long, but fine. Meals were very good."
Cons: "I had to buy a one-way ticket. It was $900. + It would have been great to be upgraded for that price!"
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."
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: "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"
Cons: "Q400 noisy, lack of storage space"
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: "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: "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."
