Pros: "Crew were accommodating. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "More elbow and leg room."
Cons: "Will never book a trip with you"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Terrible food and entertainment on the flight to and from Santiago. Felt squizzed like a sardine in the can in the middle row. I will never choose Boening 777 for overnight flights. Transfer in Toronto was confusing. Delayed arrival caused problems in retrieving luggage and made a stressful experience getting to Chicago flight on time - not mentioning sluggish US border check in Toronto. For my next trip, I would rather pick another airline and transfer airport."
Pros: "Great value for the money, friendly staff."
Pros: "Great fare. Prompt and friendly customer service on the phone."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and rebooked for the following day with the same itinerary, which would have defeated the purpose of going on my trip (a wedding). I called and Air Canada put me on a same day flight on Delta. That flip was delayed, and I would have missed my connection. Finally, I was rebooked again, but didn't get in until several hours later than I would have gotten in."
Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."
Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."
Cons: "i booked the flight in january and keyed in my passport expiration date several times online in the next several months...at the airport, i handed the air canada agent in miami my passport and she booked me and a checked bag through toronto to copenhagen...i went to board my connecting flight in toronto and was told my passport, which expires at the end of august, was no good as i needed to have 3 month left...so they refused to let me board and told me to go see customer service...so i go stand in line for several hours (was only one agent for the first 45 minutes and 10 people in front of me)...one woman going down the line to see what each person's issue was told me that it was my problem, not AC's...and that "we are only responsible for making sure your passport is valid for getting into canada"...i was on my own to find a hotel and a new flight...fortunately a supervisor saw me standing in a daze several minutes later and said that it was AC's mistake for not catching it in miami...so she booked me into a hotel, gave me the address to the US consulate and instructions on how to get an emergency passport...she said that it would be no problem as "this happens all the time"and went ahead and booked me on the next day's flight...so i was able to spend the next day getting the new passport and getting back to the airport to fly out that night, but i lost a day in copenhagen with my family...it seems to me that when flights are booked and passport info, including expiration date, are given, a simple cross check of dates would be easy, and, imho, incumbent upon the carrier taking you there, especially when "it happens all the time"...this was not done on 4 occasions between booking and my trip...there were other issues too which is why i will never fly air canada again and i will never travel though toronto...the return trip through that airport was a nightmare for many passengers."
Pros: "The people at the front desk in gander were great"
Cons: "There were delayed at every stop. I had a 9 hour delay because the flight attendant had food poisoning. How was there not a replacement?"
Pros: "The plane was obviously newer and in good condition. Entertainment options were good. Window dimmers were a cool touch."
Cons: "Service from the crew was generally bad. For a 5 hour flight, we were offered one drink. We had to sit with our pile of trash for 2.5 hours before they collected it. Crew was grumpy and unpleasant. My baggage was damaged."
Cons: "Our flight got canceled 12 hours before we were supposed to take off. They postponed our flight 24 hours. It took forever to change it so that we still arrived at our destination on the same day. I'm glad I checked my email before going to bed because otherwise I would have shown up to the airport not knowing my flight was canceled. That should not have happened. It almost ruined my trip."
Pros: "Crew noticed I was thirsty and gave me the can without asking"
Cons: "Crew said I wish they would hurry up and get off and I whipped my head around and she apologized. She meant no harm but that's not good service."
Cons: "Seats are to close. There is no leg room."
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled and we got home"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "When someone has a terrible experience with a single individual it's just an anomaly. When it came to our experience it's easy to see that it's systemic and come from the top down in that company. The lack of customer service training is apparent. It was rampant and the overall feeling was just plain rudeness exuding from every team member. I'll never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Had to have a visa for connecting flights. Not worth going through Canada."
Pros: "All was well. Thanks"
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Cons: "I haven't been on a plane with no tvs in more than 10 years. The least you could do is let people know prior to boarding. Like when you purchase the tickets or 24hours before!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers the best service and the most relaxing flights."
Pros: "We got home but later then expected."
Cons: "Coming home late. Going thru customs took too long. No one to help with directions at Toronto Airport"
Pros: "On board entertainment available and more room. Not a full plane"
Pros: "Flight was not full and reservstions mde some time ago but we were seated several rows apart. inexcusable!! Several others were also seated apart so we talked among us and people moved around so that family and couples were together, no thanks to airline. Service and food were second class at best."
Cons: "The fact that my ticket said something different from my itinerary and I spent far too long at the counter to get a seat assignment."
Cons: "Delays both on Det to Toronto and Toronto to Kingston"
Pros: "Size of plane allowing for aisle seating."
Cons: "Delay with boarding for about hour without a good explanation. All monitors in airport shows plane on time when it actually was not. Boarding process also took a bit of time perhaps due to many elderly on the flight. Seating was also confusing as the middle seats did not correspond with aisle seating. This caused delays as passengers had to figure out where they were sitting. Checked in luggage at gate since flight was full and we were asked to volunteer to check-in luggage. At baggage claim, bag delay to retrieve luggage after already hour delay in departure. Bags was not labeled or categorized correctly causing an extra half hour delay to claim bags."
Cons: "Delayed Sat on a parked plane for 4 hours in PHL before taking off Missed Connection in Toronto No compensation/help with food or hotel"
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"
Pros: "The crew in the flight from Rome were marvelous. I was sick during the flight and they were helpful"
Cons: "The flight was horribly delayed and my plans and onwards transit was seriously affected. I missed my connecting flight from Toronto to New York and as a result, my plans to proceed to Boston was destroyed. When I spoke to the agent in Toronto, to route me to Boston, she told me that Air Canada's contract with me is to a place and not necessarily at a particular time. That was unbelievable. I arrived New York stranded, at 1:30pm, with no ability to continue to Boston. I had to spend so much money to get me to Boston. It was a horribly long day. Over 25 hours on the road, counting when I arrived Rome airport and when I finally got home."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Aaron, was wonderful"
Cons: "Everything else was awful....I was taking an international flights, so arrived at the airport 3 hours early, as specified. There was no attendant at the desk until 1.45 hours prior to boarding. We almost missed the flight, and as a result, the connection to London. If possible, I will not fly air Canada again"
Pros: "great seats much roomier than other airlines"
Cons: "Not offered earphones"
Pros: "Friendly staff and movies for children"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"
Cons: "Everything poor attitude bad manners and terrible demeanor"
Cons: "Was delayed so long I almost missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Staff was useless. Made all international connections via my cell phone."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did not bother to inform us! Ended up flying on United and arrived 6 hours later than planned."
Pros: "Business class was very nice, once we finally were somewhat compensated for the airlines errors."
Cons: "Had to settle for flying into Heathrow even though we ultimately needed to get to Brighton and had been originally booked on a Luftanza flight to Gatwick. We needed to get to a conference that began Wednesday 3pm, but didn't get in until midnight that night, so we missed the first day of the meeting. The Air Canada service desk didn't exist, so we had to go through two different managers before we finally got an upgrade to business class. After that, the flight was very enjoyable. Once we got to Heathrow at 9pm, we ended up having to pay 60 pounds per person to get to Brighton, finally arriving at our hotel at midnight. Needless to say, we will be contacting the Air Canada customer service and lodging a very large complaint by email...apparently the only way to contact them."
Pros: "The boarding process, with a child is good. They allow you to board earlier than your designated zone."
Cons: "The check in process took over 30 minutes with a desk agent and the "system wasn't working properly." There were no food options from the menu available. The crew did not appear as knowledgeable as other crews I've flown with."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "BOARDED LATE AND IN GATES VERY FAR FROM CHECKING. The (solitary) crew member did not speak French. Everything she said in French was unintelligible- very offensive (and disturbing) for Francophone passengers such as myself. And for a Canadian carrier- This shows no respect for our pluralism. When we book online and try to pick priority seating, then find out that the plane is so small that the 9th row means 9 out of 12 or something, this feels like a con. Especially when we pay extra. Stop making people pay for seats that don't get them any priority boarding (Zone 3!) and offer no real advantage."
Pros: "I like every thing about that flight it was my best flight going to Jamaica.thanks again for such an awesome flight."
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "Steward was funny"
Cons: "Small plane, wasn't told ahead of time that there was no carry on luggage and I had lap top I had to carry on and expensive camera equipment that had to be checked, would not have taken this flight if I knew this ahead of time."
Cons: "Food was awful I was in row 51 so no choices left when the food got to me. They did find me something else I think from first class. Cold next to the window glad I brought my own blanket. It was a direct flight."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The fact that 10 minutes before we were suppose to originally board the staff at DTW was trying to get people to give up seats because they oversold the flight which should have taken care of before that. It also doesn't help that the flight was late arriving and unboarding so that it could be reboard by new customers and updates were unhelpful and useless when attached to the plea for someone to give up their seats. 0 out of 5 stars...would NOT recommend."
Pros: "They had brand new film releases."
Cons: "I got bumped. Even though, I made my flight on time AND had chosen my seat over a month ago, air Canada decided to bump me from my international flight. I was able to get a seat but not the seat I would have chosen (I'm six foot, I can't sit by the window). Since it was so crowded, I couldn't stretch my legs or use the loo. Finally I PAID for the seat I was bumped from; no one can tell me when I'll get reimbursed."
Cons: "nonexistent in-flight service. They offered a drink. nothing more in 3 h fly duration Crew not professional"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, and air canada staff worked hard to get me to my destination with a different connecting flight."
