Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Extremely cold on the plane"
Pros: "Had an empty middle seat between my window seat and my friend's aisle seat which was nice on such a long flight."
Cons: "This was my first intercontinental flight on Air Canada and I was surprised at how meager their meal and entertainment offerings were. Every other airline I've flown between North America and Asia gives bigger meals and more free entertainment to help pass the considerable flight time."
Pros: "The entire boarding process, takeoff, staff were all good."
Cons: "The entertainment system went down mid flight and I was unable to finish watching a show. Not happy about this."
Pros: "I appreciate the upgrade to the first class."
Cons: "Taking a bus for boarding"
Pros: "Everything except food."
Cons: "Food. It's edible but the quality of the food is very poor."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Pros: "Good food, great entertainment. The extra for economy plus was well worth it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but most of the delay was recovered during the flight."
Pros: "They fed us several times."
Cons: "No wifi. The seats are really uncomfortable. Delays."
Pros: "I liked nothing except disembarking the aircraft after a horrible experience."
Cons: "On my departure flight from Vancouver to Isaka it was cancelled. They created a new flight for us the next morning but nobody from AC staff knew about it until very late. AC information desk said that AC counter in airport opened normally at 7:45 am but our departure flight was scheduled for 8:30 and we were at airport at 5a. It was utter confusion by AC"
Pros: "The food is horrible and movies not a lot of selection"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Decent video selection, staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Maintenance issues rendered all three of my flights delayed on my trip back from Japan. Last delay was 3 hours behind :( Food selection was subpar even for airline food."
Pros: "TV on back of seat. Free movies. Okay food"
Cons: "I had to wait 2 hours for my bags"
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Food not enough"
Pros: "-Staff was friendly and helpful. -The food is pretty good, and comes frequently enough -Cheap! -The flight was delayed, but at least Air Canada automatically rescheduled my next flight for me (which also ended up being delayed, but I'm happy this issue was resolved well before going through customs with a ticket for an airplane which had already begun boarding/departed)."
Cons: "-Air Canada baggage drop only open after 1pm -The aircraft was delayed, forcing my next flight from Toronto to have to be rescheduled. That flight was also delayed, so although I was supposed to be in Boston at 7:25, I arrived at around 11:25. All that extra time was spent waiting at Narita and Toronto. -Although I was seated next to a bathroom, I was at a window seat and thus had no good access to it for the whole 12 hour flight -- most of the time the way out was blocked by tray tables. Overall space was somewhat limited."
Cons: "Our entertainment system was broken."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late departing."
Pros: "Fast boarding and unboarding"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight and Air Canads charged me $300! They said thy had some 'peak days' fee (August) and a 'weekend' fee, which covers Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 3 day weekend??! Come on, what a scam. Just charge me the flat change fee not all these bullshit greedy add-ons."
Pros: "Space between seats in economy class"
Cons: "The customer service when our flight to Boston (connection) was atrotious. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "A fine flight, considering how small the plane was."
Cons: "Boring food. Better than none at all, I suppose. I had the vegan option. Perhaps they are trying to discourage vegetarians from eating on the plane at all? It took half an hour on the phone to even arrange it."
Pros: "Crew was fairly friendly and a little hands off. Food was the best I've had flying abroad thus far. Seats were okay. Was in economy so I can't expect too much but I would love if there was a little more room especially for people stuck in middle seats. Seats were fairly comfortable. There was a lot more leg room than I have before which made the 10+hr flight better!"
Cons: "Boarding didn't go well for me as I almost missed my flight due to delays (but that didn't make me feel upset towards Air Canada, just bad circumstances that I had to be honest about). Crew was fairly friendly - a little hands off (which is good) but I wasn't wowed by them. Wasn't a lot of movie options. I realize you can't get a TON but a few more current movies would have been nice."
Pros: "Comfortable flight and attentive crew."
Cons: "Other than delays and gate changes, flight was fine."
Pros: "Boeing 767 is a great aircraft in every way!"
Cons: "A shame to connect in Toronto!"
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "My seat on my first leg coming back to New Tork from Tokyo to Toronto."
Cons: "I booked my flight 8 months in advance and pre ordered a vegetarian meal a week before leaving for my trip. They "forgot" one of my meals (breakfast meal) on my return flight home. Hey also gave me a tuna sandwich for my snack, which means they also didn not have a vegetarian sandwich for me in between my dinner and breakfast meals. It was the first time every traveling overseas that they've made an error with my meal plan after flying on multiple airlines. My connection was a nightmare as I had to wait to go through security and customs which took over an hour and then my second flight was delayed. I will never fly through Canada again from the U.S. To another destination country."
Pros: "Tickets are cheap"
Cons: "Poor food, rude crews, small seats"
Cons: "I was really upset that I found out the baggage handling broke my luggage even though I specifically marked fragile."
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
Pros: "The fact that I could charge my i phone..."
Cons: "The lax attitude to service and customer satisfaction there was a problem with the entertainment system, took over an hour to get attention... But no positive resolution..."
Pros: "Our attendant was great-- really funny and friendly guy !!"
Pros: "Staff in Tokyo were very nice. Couple flight attendants I felt were rude to some passengers."
Cons: "See above. Very uncomfortable seats. Food was not very good."
Cons: "The two meals served on board were cheap. Very small portions and cheap containers were used."
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful--just what I like!"
Cons: "There was nothing that I can think of.."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Aircraft was nice."
Cons: "Our flight time was changed several times on the flight. The original seat map that I was able to choose seats from was wrong, forcing me or my son to sit in the middle seat. This was unacceptable."
Cons: "Delayed by 45 minutes, but there were no official announcements or information from Air Canada until boarding started. As usual, Air Canada does not seem to respect it's clients enough to bother informing of information regarding their flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
Pros: "Nice helpful staff, kept bringing by a water bottle to fill my water up."
Cons: "Legroom - amazingly cramped, and I'm only 5'10""
Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."
Pros: "Comfortable pod seats on the 787"
Pros: "Quite comfortable for economy. The food was good and they had new movies available. The Dreamliner is a great plane."
Cons: "Too many announcements. That's my only complaint."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Good games and movies; smooth flight; food was ok;"
Cons: "Had to wait for check in which hampered my plan to shop at Narita. I was told check I. Started at 1640 and I arrived at the airport at 1600. The seats were tight and not very comfortable in economy;"
Pros: "The economy seats were pretty comfortable and the movie selection was decent. I liked the auto-dimming windows and the light meant to mimic the sunrise. The staff on board was excellent and accommodating."
Cons: "The scheduling for this flight was terrible. We ended up leaving 20 minutes late due to a busy airport, but that wasn't so bad. We were told that upon arrival in Canada we would have to get our luggage from baggage claim and recheck it through customs. I understand that is the policy, but only a 1 hour layover was planned! If we were rushing straight to our next flight, this would have been fine, but when I booked I was unaware of the customs policies. Air Canada knew this and should not have booked flights so closely together. We missed our next flight, which caused us to miss our second flight, which meant we were stuck in Toronto for two days."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Cons: "I couldn't sleep due to lack of legroom, but its what's expected for a window seat"
Cons: "The front desk in Vancouver, Canada did not allow me to board the plane to Tokyo. I am supposed to attend the memorial service of my Mom who passed away two days before."
Cons: "I got two basic economy seats and no seat assignment until after other passengers had already started boarding. The gate agent showed up late so it was a hassle to get to the counter and find out where I was sitting. Then there was a long backup on the gang way, and we still couldn't get on the plane. We were delayed sitting on the tarmac for an extra hour, the crew could have given us drinks or snacks then."
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "More tv selection"
Pros: "Space and time efficiency"
Cons: "Cleaner lavatories, it smelled like urine."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food was literally inedible. The breakfast of mushroom omelette and sausage was so unsavory, I could see the line where the outter “eggy” shell covered the inside, decidedly less eggy and hidden section. I had to stop eating it after 3 bites. Very disappointed with food quality."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good. Food was good."
Cons: "The flight attendants were terrible. Rushed, cranky, and fake. Didn't want to share what was actually in the Pasta or Chicken. As if anyone wants to just choose pasta or chicken without knowing what the hell is on it. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Crew members was nice,"
Cons: "Seat was okay and plane was a bit delay."
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "It got us to London. My bags were quickly available."
Cons: "The seats were SO. UNCOMFORTABLE. I didn't sleep at all and have a headache because of them. Absolutely atrocious. The food was meh. One of the flight attendants was so rude I dreaded every time she headed over. I'll be flying with Delta in the future."
Pros: "Food was way better than I expected."
Pros: "Professionalism and kindness"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early. I'm usually apprehensive about connecting on a domestic travel, but things went perfectly!"
Pros: "Loved the in flight direct tv in the seat backs"
Pros: "That I made it"
Cons: "The delays, the long standby lists, the 4 hour late arrival"
Cons: "The movie not updated. No chinese movie. Love the pillow and blanket at business flight."
Pros: "I was able to leave Burlington before the storm."
Cons: "When you travel the friendly skies, it is a cattle call. Travel is just not fun via any of the airlines. My experience was decent and that is all that I can say."
Cons: "Boarding process makes no sense to the flying public and is just another money making deal for the airline."
Cons: "Had to pay to pay extra to watch t.v. was $7.99 for a 2 hour flight. Could go to a theater for those prices. Everyone in my group complained about it"
Pros: "The check in process"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Decent flight made it there I time. Flight attendants were very nice and helpful"
Pros: "My flight was delayed multiple and had to get a taxi to LAX which we even missed that flight because the gate attendants waited so late to make a decision. We are still traveling as we speak and are looking to arrive in Raleigh after 3pm. Which is 8 hours later than our orginal flight."
Cons: "Air Canada sold the flight to United Airlines - and United moved the flight later and later and later. Six times. When this was combined with a weather delay, we ended up boarding at 11 PM and landing well after midnight. This is not what we signed up for and not what we wanted."
Cons: "Having a medical issue, requested for an isle seat but unsuccessful."
Pros: "They had many movies selection."
Pros: "Airline rebooked me to a more convenient flight at no charge. The service was excellent. Seats were comfortable. The crew were upbeat."
Pros: "Took off late but landed on time"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. Hot on board."
Pros: "Night quiet flight fast"
Cons: "Tight seats super full"
Cons: "No one could get their story straight and actually lied! I was sent a text (I was already at the airport) that the flight would be delayed due to "aircraft maintenance". Not true in the least bit. Then when we finally landed in Denver (nearly every person on that flight missed their connecting flights) we were told the system said the delay was "due to weather". Another lie. Then they announced there would be gate agents to meet us when we got off the plane to assist with connecting flights. First gate agent said "I have no information you have to go to gate 56". The person at gate 56 said "I don't open for another 15 minutes so you have to go to gate 39"! The real story? They made us change gates 5 times in Fargo! The gate attendant was using the "F-bomb"! It wasn't aircraft maintenance or the weather. They couldn't get the walkway to work! In the end, we still left from the original gate and had to walk outside on the tarmac to board the plane. Why didn't they just opt for that to begin with and avoid all the missed flights? My measly voucher isn't nearly enough compensation and if United ever expects me to fly with them again I am expecting a full refund (as other passengers received- I witnessed the manager in Denver authorize a full refund for another passenger but only offered me $50)"
Cons: "The seating is cramped but to be expected in coach. No big deal."
Pros: "I was able to board early since I have a United MileagePlus Explorer card."
Cons: "The seats in economy has very limited legroom and the large and over weight Caucasian seating next to me frequently took the arm rest and cross over into my space. The airplane did not have individual monitors. And trying to watch a movie on my phone over United's wi-fi was a terrible experience since the signal keeps dropping."
Pros: "Much better flight from HOU-PTY. Crew was more friendly. Option to qatch free movies on my personal device is great."
Cons: "4 hour flight and only a small pouch of savory snacks and some mints! Leg room is very limited."
Pros: "ANA operates 787s which have much nicer cabins and entertainment systems than the older 777s operated by United."
Cons: "The food on United leg is pretty bad after an ANA operated flight. I'm always going to ask for the Vegeteraierain option going forward. Why waist an animal on that feed stuff they give you to eat."
Cons: "No leg room, seats uncomfortable and tiny. Wifi is expensive. Plane took off late due to a flight attendant being late. And now we're 40 late to put destination."
Pros: "Good non.stop to Costa Rica."
Cons: "Best flight to Costa Rica out of the tristate area."
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"

Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "The flight was a head of schedule and very smooth."
Cons: "It was freezing cold. I was wearing a sweater and was freezing."
Pros: "The welcoming feeling that I received from the flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a drunk man on the flight. He kept making so many disruptions."
Cons: "The United Terminal at Newark is hideous and United should be ashamed to be associated with this poor quality. The airport is a construction zone at best. The aircraft is tiny, cramped and inadequate."
Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"
Pros: "I was very happy with the attendants. Very friendly and helpful. The crew was very professional and informative."
Cons: "No place to charge your phone Location"
Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
