And the online payment for bags was not user-friendly Venice should have a bus shuttle for the older folks from the Water Taxi to the terminal and one person to monitor the security at this location at all times. A few more signs in multiple languages at the security checkpoint would have made the line go faster. Same thing at the ticket check-in counter."
Pros: "Selection of movies in the entertainment section. Food"
Cons: "I AM A HANDICAPPED CUSTOMER. MY FIRST FLIGHT FROM BOLOGNA TO FRANKFORT WAS FINE. NO PROBLEMS. WHEN WE LANDED IN FRANKFORT THEY WOULD NOT LET ME OFF THE PLANE SINCE THERE WAS AN ERROR HAVING A WHEELCHAIR AND A LIFT TO MEET THE PLANE. I SAT ON THE PLANE FOR 45 MINUTES BEFORE THE ISSUE WAS RESOLVED. I GOT TO THE TERMINAL AND WE WATCHED AS THE PILOT CLOSED THE DOORS OF OUR CONNECTING FLIGHT 35 MINUTES PRIOR TO TAKE OFF. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE MISSED THAT FLIGHT. WE WERE BOOKED ON A LATER FLIGHT WITH UNITED. THIS CREATED MORE PROBLEMS THAN I HAVE SPACE TO WRITE. I AM 70 YEARS OLD AND HANDICAPPED. YOUR INCOMPETENCE CAUSED MY WIFE AND I NUMEROUS PROBLEMS I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. I KNOW THIS WILL FALL ON DEAF EARS. I WOULD APPRECIATE A RESPONSE."
Pros: "The flight was on-time and very smooth. Check-in and baggage drop were incredibly easy. I also liked the self-scanning of the boarding passes to board. Great number of options on personal entertainment screen - including movies, tv shows, and music that people actually want to listen to! Great flight overall."

Pros: "Good flight good staff. Captain explained the route which is nice."
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "Good service and no delays"

Pros: "This is hands down the best airline to fly to and from Canada."
Cons: "I wish the food for purchase options had better vegan and vegetarian selections."

Cons: "Cramped seating. No entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The seats were ridiculously small. It was so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Significant delays in the flight. I seem to always have poor on time service with Air Canada. And not one apology, which is the least you would expect from a company in the service industry."
Cons: "Missed the connection in Toronto. Had to spend the night there. My skis arrived one day late to my destination."
Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."
Cons: "Flight was late departing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 30 minutes-1 hour on tarmac prior to takeoff for deicing"
Cons: "we took off 3 hours after our actual take off time due to the cargo door not closing. we sat on the plane and they kept the exit door open causing very cold air in the plane. the door should have been closed to keep the heat in. for the 3 hours we were not given or even asked whether we might want coffee or something to drink or some kind of snack, they gave the business class something tho."
Cons: "Flight back was OK but flight to Orlando was not. Travelling with s 94 yr old man in a wheelchair. Everything at Pearson is not conduscent to travel with a handicapped person. Poor layout, poor assistance, non caring people, long distances,, and final straw was air canada started boarding without calling for handicapped first. We had to stop them and then fight our way up the aisle with people all in the way. Terrible, just lousey. 3 and a half hours before flight we arrived and didn't even have a chance to get some lunch before flight. I give Toronto and air Canada the worst possible rating of any airport or airline I've ever dealt with. John O"Hearn"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and tight. Leg room is not existent."
Cons: "Power outlet's didn't work"
Pros: "Quick services"
Cons: "Entertainer system overload twice - without move the key"
Pros: "On board food acceptable"
Cons: "Entertainment system wifi connection kept dropping. Crew were oblivious to the issue and unable to address."
Pros: "Great service, multiple meal/snack services and staff was friendly and helpful when needed,"
Cons: "The customer service line through telephone was not very helpful and seemed to cause more worry when we ran into a problem with our flight."
Pros: "The staff and crew were just amazing, I traveled with my 83 yr old mom who's in a wheelchair and the staff was with us from arrival to boarding and once boarded, the air crew was helpful and checking up on her often during the flight. The plane was full load of people so it was really hot but the crew came by often with water refill. A lady besides me was coughing a lot and sure enough the stewardess came by with water and to ask if anything she could do without having been summoned. We rented tablets to see movies and I'm not very technological but the stewardess was very patient with me and took time to help me set up and she showed me how to go about in your application. The flights to and from Las Vegas were perfect and all thanks to the wonderful crew you have, even the pilot was standing at the entrance to greet us when we boarded which was great as I got to see who I was entrusting my life to during this 4h38 min flight, quite reassuring. Anyways, UA, Transat and AA take a back seat to Air Canada any day of the week!"
Cons: "the heat was real bad, even with he little air vents on the ceiling, it was still really hot. the leg room was cramped but it felt like the seats were a little roomier than my last flights with Transat, UA and AA but that could be my imagination."
Pros: "Able to get onto this earlier flight rather than waiting an additional 4 hours in the Toronto airport."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and cramped. Volume on the intercom system was extremely loud (startlingly so) and crew speak so quickly it was still difficult to catch. He actually sounded more like a Scottish auctioneer. The flight couldn't arrive soon enough."
Cons: "Rouge entertainment system is crappy"
Pros: "on-board service"
Cons: "Late departures (about 30 minutes each way) with corresponding late arrivals. On the flight LAX to Vancouver due to late arrival of the plane, on the return flight supposedly because of a delay in loading luggage (the flight was fully boarded for 30+minutes before loading was completed). The late arrival in Los Angeles led to further delay as there was no available gate to accept us so we disembarked 50+minutes after the scheduled time."
Pros: "This was not a Luftansa flight!! It was Air Canada Rouge which is a budget airline that doesnt compare to Luftansa"
Cons: "The fact that it said thia was a luftansa flight when in fact it qas not"
Cons: "2 hour delay, lack of connecting ticket made me have to go through security all over again, the "entertainment" is an app for your smartphone/tablet."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and empathetic. Was not their fault for the delay."
Cons: "First plane that was after a 4 hour layover broke down. Took over an additional 9 hours to get a new plane. And all we were given was a voucher for a discount on a Canada Air trip and headphones."
Pros: "Once I made my flight (the next day) everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Online checkin does not inform passenger if their passport is suitable for travel. Although my online checkin was successful, once at the airport the attendant would not allow boarding because expiration was within 6 months of travel - a requirement for certain countries. It would be much more efficient - for airline and passengers - if the online check in system can catch this before arrival at the airport."
Pros: "The food was pretty good!"
Cons: "*The in-flight entertainement required you tonise your own mobile devices, but locks "premium" content (movies) and forces you to install an app to view it - which you can't do once your on the plane and have no wifi. Also, there's no way my iPad would've lasted 7h without a charging port anyways..."
Cons: "Everything. Plane was ready to leave on time but had a delay of almost an hour due to construction in Toronto. Connecting flight was held in Toronto and despite getting to gate almost an hour before departure, they changed passengers to another flight causing total delay of four hours. Air Canada staff were indifferent and uncaring. Unfortunately with no real choice in airlines to Newfoundland we are stuck with Air Canada."
Pros: "Air Canada accommodated me on an earlier flight saving me 3 hrs."
Pros: "The trip from Kelowna to Vancouver was amazing. Quick very pleasant."
Pros: "The experience was par for the course. No frills, no pleasantries, only water and juice on offer, but the A330 was great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Everytime I have flown air canada they are behind schedule and so unorganized with boarding and their snack suck not everyone likes pretzels. Other air lines I have flown with Opperator much more smoothly offer pretzels or cookies and are on time"
Cons: "Small legroom and poor selection in the entertainment provided via wifi"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "service on craft was exccellent, friendly, enough time for the travel too."
Cons: "stupid automatic kiosk, they force us to take it even it wont work because of my name is too long. Have to wait in line and get bypass when using kiosk. Damn it we are in 2016, can you have smarter computer? I mean, I don't have a first name with 1,500 characters in it, when you FORCE us to take it, can it be useful one time?. And, the check-in was terrible improvising."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Like to be able to pick my seat ahead of time without a charge."
Pros: "- At Rome FCO, one of the Air Canada representatives pulled out of the line to get us into the business class check-in line since we had 2 kids - we totally loved this focus on families and respect the attention to detail! - The flight from FCO to YYZ was awesome! great food, great service, constant flow of drinks and the dessert was awesome! my kids are picky eaters and even they enjoyed the food - Movie and entertainment selection was awesome - Lastly, appreciated the prompt service for getting child stroller at the door of the aircraft at all times (from FCO-YYZ-PDX)"
Cons: "- The new designed aircraft are meant to pack more passengers which means the aisle for rolling the trolley is very narrow - poor flight attendants were having a challenge and bumping trolley into seats (not their fault at all) - given likelihood of injuries and lawsuits, I highly recommend AIR CANADA management to do something about this narrow aisle before it is too late (i.e. major lawsuit filed by future passenger on account of injury sustained because of getting hurt by food trolley)"
Cons: "No food for 5 hours No dimmed lights No blankets"
Pros: "Their 787 is indeed a dream to fly! The flight felt much shorter than on other airplanes."
Cons: "Their website didn't work for checking in, then their offices were closed most of the time, with no 24 hr support, leaving me high and dry on several occasions when I needed to check in, and when I needed to make a special meal request."
Pros: "Flight and attendants great! A second offering of coffee would have been appreciated!"
Cons: "Lines were confusing to me. Kiosk machines for boarding passes clogged lines. Only 3 staff working security lines after a long weekend! 3 sets of married couples that I knew of couldn't be seated together! Airport personnel not very helpful and rather cranky!"
Pros: "Roomy preferred seats"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Very fast flight"
Cons: "In flight Audio didn't work"
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "We actually arrived alive."
Cons: "We arrived into London so late that we were forced to take a taxi at a huge expense. During the 3 hr delay the only food provided was a small bag of pretzels and water."
Pros: "that the crew was friendly"
Cons: "food was awful"
Cons: "No viewing screens and fewer selections of movies from air canada app compared with selection from vancouver to tokyo. I don't know why our return trip was so different."
Cons: "Toronto staff was not helpful in aiding us at the gate. We had to wait u tip anther staff member showed up. We boarded and then sat on the plane for 30 minutes while waiting for crew to bring luggage. The entire Toronto experience of customs was unpleasant and chaotic. We will try to avoid flying through Toronto again on an international flight."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
