Pros: "Full refund for cancelled flight"
Cons: "Frustrating but it’s a weather thing"
Pros: "The lady was calm at the gate, explaining that we wouldn’t be leaving and trying to help everyone flipping out. 1. Flight was delayed 2. More delayed, meaning we miss connections in Calgary 3. Canceled"
Cons: "While my flight was to Abbotsford, my final destination was to the US (Seattle). Canceling the flight meant I miss my 4 hour ride home from Abbotsford. When asking if I could change my final destination, only destinations in Canada would be allowed. I spent a fortune getting flights, planning rides, to make it home by the 26th and tend to responsibilities by the 27th. I realize weather delayed the flight, but once in Calgary, it would have been nice for WestJet to even scope the opportunity to get me home. #StrandedinCanada"

Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."

Cons: "Announcement from the flight crew inaudible. Much too fast and with lack of ununciation"
Pros: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"

Cons: "I found the rows a bit tight together leading to a little less legroom then I would like but this is standard with almost any airline."
Cons: "I checked into my flight 24 hours in advance, got my boarding pass and everything. 12 hours before, I double check the boarding time and my flight has been cancelled. I got no notification of this, luckily I happened to check on my own."
Pros: "Getting into Victoria befor evening"
Cons: "Delayed, no pilot, no communication."
Cons: "The overhead bins are now too small for a large number of carry on luggage that meets the criteria of carry on. If you wheel your now over sized carry on to the gate they will stow it below for free. If you check it they charge you $26.00 knowing it won't fit in the bins anyway."
Cons: "Having to divert to Calgary for broken radio. I’m positive there is enough redundancy in radio system to be down 1 radio."
Pros: "Crew overworked but pleasant and doing their best. Self check in works well with assistance"
Cons: "Management decisions meant assigned crew arrived after our flight supposed to depart. Needed 1 more person to service passengers. We waited a long time after serving started to get served. We did not know that food could be preordered online and served soon after takeoff. No TV screens on back of chairs...had to rent device to see movies. Have app but not able to book and get points. Wrote to WJ for help but oo response"

Cons: "The flight back was an hour late to begin with, flight itself was good landing was probably the worst landing I've ever felt in my 20-25 flights, was an extremely tough landing. Smoke alarms went off in he airport so we had to wait for a bridge and luggage"
Pros: "Staff were super friendly and welcoming"
Pros: "Check-in agent in Kelowna was nice as were gate agents. The seats were fine even though we were in the back of the small plane. Flying in and out of Kelowna brought back memories of flights long ago: no jet ways and prop planes. It was nice they had a ramp rather than stairs."

Pros: "On time, smooth and amazing views of snow capped mountains."

Cons: "Maybe not steal passengers stuff?"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 2.5hr and all they did was give meal vouchers for $10 CAD while we were shut in the airport since it closed around us."
Cons: "The flight was late leaving and most of the passengers needed to catch connecting flights, so there was some anxiety as the crew didn't have any information as to whether or not we'd be able to connect."
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."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Overhead bin storage too small for 70% of passengers. Crew had an attitude that was not pleasant"
Pros: "The onboard flight crew were very friendly."
Cons: "We were traveling with an infant and there was no pre boarding call. They took wheelchairs and then just started zone 1. The seats are so uncomfortable, it feels like a lot of the padding has been removed for weight. I am 6’2” and there is just not enough room to sit comfortably in a 3 seat row. If we can avoid flying Rouge , we do."
Pros: "The Toronto to Victoria service was a good one earlier but now with Air Canada Rouge service is not very comfortable and the best choice given that it a long flight. No Onboard entertainment, uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Both Air Canada flights were late The agent responsible for boarding was an angry person"
Cons: "Missed the connection in Toronto. Had to spend the night there. My skis arrived one day late to my destination."
Cons: "Flight was late departing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 30 minutes-1 hour on tarmac prior to takeoff for deicing"
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."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and tight. Leg room is not existent."
Pros: "Crews attention and ease handling medical travel"

Pros: "the team helpful"
Pros: "Air Canada's business seat is one of the best out there, and the crew on this flight was super friendly. Extra props to the service director, Joseph."
Cons: "Boarding was slow for business class joining after zone 2 announced. Despite being parked at a gate with two jetbridges, only one was used. AC could use a refresh on its entertainment selection - hasn't changed much over the summer."
Pros: "I love the new Boeing 787 planes! This was the smoothest flight ever, both from Vancouver to Tokyo and back again. The new planes have the dimmable windows, which are so cool! And, each seat has it's own screen with free movies, TV, flight info, etc. Also, the flights were on time!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was helpful when I had a personal health issue."
Cons: "Pay for snacks on a 5 hour flight? What do you really get for a ticket that cost over $500. US? I paid for noodle soup. They gave me a fork to eat it after they bumped into me and spilled the hot liquid on my sleeve and slacks. Then when I went to eat it I realized that the noodles were not cooked through. they were rubbery. the liquid was tasty, but with a fork how much can you taste. Ended up giving it back after eating about 1/4 of it. Seats had no leg room even though was a larger plane. Had restless leg from the very beginning. Legs were in pain the whole time."
Pros: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "Flight was late by over an hour."
Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."
Pros: "Air Canada accommodated me on an earlier flight saving me 3 hrs."
Pros: "The trip from Kelowna to Vancouver was amazing. Quick very pleasant."
Pros: "The experience was par for the course. No frills, no pleasantries, only water and juice on offer, but the A330 was great."
Pros: "Great crew and helpers on the ground too! Loved the entertainment too! :)"
Pros: "The airline was aware we were held up in the transit from the boston flight to the victoria flight and made some effort to hold the gate open for us. We made it with one minute to spare."
Cons: "The airport security were helpful in the end, but our our struggle to get from the boston flight to the victoria flight was a nighmare. We had to beg at each intersection to get through lines so that we could get to our flight. Is ther no way to streamline this process? It colours the journey with stress beyond belief. I cannot send my mother on any such trips because of this."
Cons: "A new 150$ bottle of perfume was stolen from my checked in luggage."
Pros: "No real positives"
Cons: "Bag check a mess, late departure, so, so food and service."
Cons: "It's hard to believe, but Air Canada did not offer wifi on our international - 9 hour - flight. I had intended to work and my daughter intended to do her homework and entertain herself online. They may have advertised no wifi, but I missed it. Additionally, our outbound and inbound planes were grounded for more than 30 minutes due to mechanical issues. It might be time for Air Canada to upgrade its international fleet!"
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: "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: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Like to be able to pick my seat ahead of time without a charge."
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"
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!"
Cons: "My trip was suppose to have two stops from Saint John to Louisville (one in Toronto and one in Chicago) but instead it ended up being a one stop flight from Saint John to Toronto to Cincinnati because I had to change my whole itinerary due to delays in air canada flights that caused me to miss my other connections. This made me to fly into an entirely different city and have my reception drive to get me for the only other option I was told by an air Canada representative was to take the delayed flight and miss my last connection and overnight Chicago (one of my original connections) and then fly to Louisville the next morning. This was not something I planned on doing and didn't have the time to do so had to find an alternative arrangement to get me close to where I needed to be. The first flight I was on from Saint John to Toronto was also delayed causing the flight to be late upon arrival at the Toronto airport. Not only that but then had to wait in line at the customs center for over an hour for only one customs officer was there to clear over 100+ passengers. Even if my other flights were on time I would have missed them due to the delays all around. Over all I was very displeased with how the day progressed, how I wasn't given much help from the air canada representatives at the airport other than them saying "there's nothing we can do" and for how the day continued to get worse with delays and problems all linked to air Canada."
Pros: "On time. Luggage arrived within minutes. Great Service."
Pros: "Crew Only."
Cons: "AC website states for US and Canada allow 120 mins. We arrived to the airport 130 mins inadvance. We had no checkin bags but we almost missed our flight. (Many people did miss our flight). You need to allow at least 2 -3 hrs for US security checks. Because we almost missed our flight, we didn't have time to purchase food preboarding and the selection in the plane was very limited. My partner is 6'1 and the seat was extremely uncomfortable for him and it was not in our budget to upgrade. There was no free entertainment in the plane. You needed to rent a tableT!"
Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride"
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer. Did provide a $10 meal voucher. Good to know Air Canada values my total trip delay time at $2/hr"
Pros: "Movie & t.v. Selection Most staff were friendly and did a good job"
Cons: "The amount of interruptions for snacks, food, seat belts, etc. Limited space for sitting and moving around Crying children"
Pros: "Got on as standby - very helpful staff"
Pros: "The menu says aperitif will be served before the meal but you have to ask and the attitude is oh ok but it's really not our role to serve you. Ask for a pizza or hot dog after eight hours of the 15 hour journey and its sorry we don't have any - yeah really!!! Lost one of our ski bags coming back and one bag going to Vancouver - after 5 days missing - not our problem mate call central baggage! I had three bags coming home - I'm gold stays no excess baggage - going there we stopped overnight in Vancouver - BAM $251 excess baggage charge - they are inconsistent and won't respond to emails or phone calls. Fly United and save yourself the misery of poor service."
Cons: "Customer service in flight, baggage services, quality of entertainment, thank god got the larger 380 seats"
Pros: "This is 15 minutes so not much ever goes wrong. Get to altitude and then start decent."
