Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and touch screen on TV was working but it took some work -- I had to press and hold and the little arrow would fly all over the screen"
Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."
Cons: "Connecting flight in Toronto late 4 HOURS!!!!! There is no excuse for such delay. Another plane should have been made available for the flight."
Cons: "After a delay on my first flight, I managed to get to the gate with a few minutes to spare and the door open. The desk agent refused to let me board the plane."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and capable."
Cons: "My first and last flight on the CRJ 9. It's much less comfortable than a prop plane, for a 90 minute+ flight."
Pros: "I would choose this route again--I liked the timing of the flight and transferring in Toronto."
Cons: "The kosher food was abysmal which may not have been Air Canada's fault. When a seating problem arose with an ultra orthodox man who refused to be seated next to me (a woman) the flight attendant told me, "I don't deal with that." Finally another flight attendant found the man a seat between two men."
Pros: "Crew was ok, entertainment was great"
Cons: "Seats in ac 787 are very soft, you will feel the knees of the passenger seating behind you, I couldn't fall a sleep, you feel a kick every time the passenger behind you moved his knees. Kosher food was terrible! Not eatible! Plane is very slow l, took 11.5 hours instead of 10 hours with the 747."
Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"
Cons: "Not enough leg room Cramped seating area in coach"
Pros: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow and back support non-existent."
Pros: "Overall, flights were ok"
Cons: "4 hour delay in Toronto for our connection."
Pros: "Really liked I have space for my legs."
Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment or a boarding pass for my connecting flight"
Pros: "Ease of booking"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "You fly a beautiful plane, the Boeing 787. Excellent entertainment, more comfortable seats, and just about everything on this plain was upgraded. It is a case study of how to do things right. The most impactful for me was air humidity. It was refreshing to fly and not feel like I've been in the Sahara desert at high noon. So, your starting point is really high, but you really need to look at your service."
Cons: "our flight was 40 minutes late in departing TLV. My connection in Toronto then was changed to a later flight, which was then delayed too by 50 minutes. all in all a 14 hour flight with connection ended up being close to 18 hours. My biggest two complaints about the flight itself is the food & the toilets. Your meals are the worst I've had in a major airline, and you should not serve customer frozen of close to frozen bread or sandwiches. If you are serving rolls, sandwiches or pitas, or bagels heat them up first. El-Al has been doing it for decades, go look at how they do it. But besides the bread/sandwiches issue, your meals are a really bad version of frozen supermarket meals. Just terrible all round. The other complaint is the bathroom. It was not cleaned frequently enough."
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: "The staff was helpful and courteous. I liked the tv selection especially the Canadian content."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of electric problems. The complimentary snacks aren't as good as other airlines."
Pros: "It was such a nice normal flight compared to the other flights on this trip."
Cons: "Still too much carry on to deal with before take off."
Pros: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Cons: "Everything Luggage no come on time This is the worst company"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and not bossy. Plane was not crowded. Pilot made up most of our lost time (see other box). Ground crew were friendly and efficient in Toronto, getting to me to my departure gate in time. I was pleased to be offered a food voucher."
Cons: "Departure delay of 3 hours from Tel Aviv. Unruly Haredim should be left on the ground in Toronto, not in London. Food voucher was usable at only one outlet, and Burger Ranch is a greasy spoon. Would more choice be too difficult to organize?"
Pros: "The flight was relatively empty, so there was a lot of room. Had it been full, I'm not sure I would have rated comfort so highly."
Pros: "Very accommodating with my seating requests; very kind staff and nice new plane"
Cons: "Got delayed in toronto for 24 hrs and there was a lot of waiting and disorganization"
Cons: "French annoying"
Pros: "The food was good, staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left an hour late with no explanation, causing us to miss our connecting flight in Toronto. They did switch our boarding passes to a later flight, but only 1 of 3 pieces of luggage arrived in chicago (as did also to 4 other families on our flight) it took 2 more days until we received them."
Pros: "The flight was on time!!!"
Cons: "I find over the past 25 years that I have been flying with Air Canada the customer service has really went to the dumps !!! Every body is rude and don't understand why."
Pros: "Liked being distracted by a free movie."
Cons: "AIr Canada lost my luggage and the return flight was late"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Fantastic service. I will use Air Canada again."
Cons: "The delay was unforeseen but acceptable."
Cons: "There was no information for the new rules of eTA and I've lost my flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto to my friends baby's baptism. Shame!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."
Pros: "the mounties rock, seriously"
Cons: "Flight was pleasant and food was good. I ordered veggie meal and for some reason I didn't get it on the second meal."
Cons: "We nearly missed a chance to disembark between storms because an idiot decided to grab his bags before we could move. None of the flight crew came to yell at the dummy who was holding us up."
Pros: "Price good; seat comfort OK."
Cons: "Late to board, late to take off, late to land: no explanations other than "We're third in line.""
Pros: "Great seat-back system, very good food and friendly, helpful service both in the air and on the ground. Very nice to let families board fairly early."
Cons: "Entertainment choices could have been a bit better. Would have preferred to be able to get seats more than 24 hours in advance as a group of 4 (without paying exra). I think we got the last 4 seats together."
Pros: "Arrival times for principle flight..."
Cons: "Long walks at Toronto..."
Pros: "Air Canada is a first rate provider. Their air rates are better than most other airlines, and the value for the money is exceptional."
Cons: "The plane was SO, SO COLD. The entire plane of people were miserable. I literally shivered all the way from Toronto to Istanbul, huddled next to the stranger next to me, who was also freezing. It was unreal how cold it was. People kept asking the staff to turn the A/C down, to no avail. I couldn't wait to get off that flight."
Cons: "gate was changed without an announcement flight was twice delayed"
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"
Pros: "The crew appeared overworked and understaffed. I feel that there should have been at least 2 to 4 more to help with the large number of passengers on the plane. It appeared to be more than full and perhaps extra seating was added."
Cons: "The plane was overcrowded. Seating was extremely uncomfortable and much too narrow. I am a relatively thin person but the person to my right was large and kept on pushing into me during the entire flight. Plus it took us over an hour and 30 minutes before we left the airport because we had to wait until the entire plane off boarded before a wheelchair could be brought for my wife. After the wheelchair was brought and we picked up our luggage, (2 bags), which by the way were the last 2 on the carousel, there was only one line through customs for people with special needs. By the time we left the airport I spent at least 45 minutes trying to find the cab which had been sent from Rochester, NY to pick us up and when I finally found him he wasn't allowed to stop in the taxi lane to pick us up in the taxi lane because he wasn't an authorized cab in spite of the fact that I told the security person that my wife was in a wheelchair and the weather was close to 0 degrees celsus and it was snowing."
Pros: "Organized boarding and in flight service"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Friendly staff, not as crowded as most airlines"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like -- they might need a few more rest rooms for the coach classes"
Pros: "This was my first Air Canada flight, and I was beyond impressed with the service overall. The plane was extremely nice and very spacious. The flight crew was very attentive and helpful, and had great attitudes. I had trouble with my entertainment screen early on, and a flight attendant went out of her way to reset and make sure it was working for me. The 12 hour flights both ways were comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "I honestly can't say anything negative about this experience!"
Pros: "I am happy that Air Canada is unionized; the personnel are fine. I also like the tvs on the backs of the seats, with their wide range of shows. Particularly, I like Portlandia, though there was only one episode of that."
Cons: "I disliked that the airline forced me to miss my connection (inevitable, I suppose, given the excessive security and the lack of direct, affordable connections between Manitoba and the US) and I had to take a later flight to Toronto and didn't get home until 2 am."
Pros: "Would defently will choose AC again"
Pros: "Everything the Dteamliner experiance"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Everything was piss poor."
Cons: "Everything. First I wish my flight wasn’t canceled a d then received notice on the same day"
Pros: "The seat was terrible"
Cons: "If I had gotten my luggage at the end of the flight"
Pros: "Smooth flying so got some sleep"
Cons: "Clearer back-to-front boarding process"
Pros: "Punctuality and professionalisms were at the best"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Loved everything! Including the food."
Cons: "I’m not sure if there was WiFi, i wished that would’ve been advertised. If possible can you advertise the drinks and snacks selections. I booked my flight with Lufthansa but it was operated by another company which made it difficult to find"
Pros: "Paid for Business , got a minor economy service ."
Cons: "Almost no advantages for business ticket traveller"
Pros: "Made up tons of time en route."
Cons: "Usual 737 narrow-ish seat issues. Turbulence, but not a problem anyone could control."
Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "lack of service, very unfriendly stewardess"
Pros: "Very good service! Friendly and happy staff!"
Cons: "The food; I didn't like the sandwich and the snacks"
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Not business treatment, the boarding que, the seats, the food"
Cons: "Choice of food was very limited as they were missing the food in catalog."
Pros: "At least it was a flight"
Cons: "Noisy, no complimentary snacks nor drinks, no legroom"
Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We didn’t have assigned seats, we tried to pick the night before. Anyway they sat us very near each other. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "Not particularly airline crew Limited movie choices Chaotic check-in"
Cons: "We got zero offer of beverages during our flight, even a cup of water! Glad we bought our own. It seemed like one of the flight attendants was in a flight with a customer during boarding."
Pros: "Ok flight."
Cons: "My luggage bag was lost, which contained my entire life."
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "The safety instructions movie was entertaining the first time. The crew was friendly overall."
Cons: "Both my luggage items were lost on the way there and one on the way back. No free food or drink although the flight price is not that low."
Cons: "It was late both going to Prague and coming back. Then on this flight the stewardess tried to tell me that I could not put my bag on the bin on top of my head - she was reserving it for other passengers! Then she realized that her comment might sound racist (so she apologized), then she told me that I could not put my small bag under the chair. Finally I told her that she is certainly looking for a way to get me off the flight to which she answered "I can certainly find something!!!" Cultural sensitivity is needed with these stewardesses who are racist like I don't understand and I was certainly polite!"
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that I landed safely in Brussels."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with seats that didn’t recline, head rests that didn’t move, no in-flight entertainment, no pillows or blankets, and unfriendly and somewhat rude, jaded flight attendants. The most uncomfortable international flight I’ve been on"
Pros: "They gave us a pillow and blanket so we could sleep. They offered a good selection of movies and other entertainment. The airline staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seating was cramped but all airlines treat their three class clients like cattle."
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "It was a small plane with only 1 bathroom which was not available for the flight due to long lines. There was no food or even a drink of water without payment. there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "They dropped our connection. Took 3 hours to straighten it out"
Pros: "Long flights are never fun It helped that the crew was helpful and pleasant Food was ok but there could have been more offered It was an 8 hour flight and there was one meal an hour after take off and then just a very small snack and drink an hour before Not enough water was offered throughout the flight"
Cons: "Delayed and JFK wasn't ready for us. So more delay"
Pros: "I had an aisle seat."
Cons: "No entertainment provided, except for the option to connect to their wi-fi. However, if you didn't have a wi-fi capable device, you were screwed. The food was disgusting - the worst I have ever experienced on a flight."
Cons: "The special meal that I had requested was not available. In fact the only meals on the Brussels to Washington leg were chicken/fish. No vegetarian meal was provided."
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay"
Pros: "The team was nice, the flight took off on time and arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Even though I'm a star Alliance frequent traveler status holder, and the status grants an extra bag on economy class I was forced to pay for my first checked in bag. Furthermore, since I assumed I'll be getting my checked in luggage for free (as it states on the miles and more website) I didn't pay for it in advance a fee of 35$, meaning they made me pay 65$ in the airport."
Pros: "The airline insisted I check my bag because it was 2lbs over the weight, but it was an empty flight. We had a transfer in Brussels where some how the tags on the bags were not there and we were without a luggage for 5 days. I feel that the Venice airport claim was horrible as they seem to misplace luggage alot and on our transfer flight they fave us the wrong carousel. The service on the plane was great. But that was it."

But that was it."
Cons: "The flight was similar to a low-cost airline but I was not informed of this when booking. Uncomfortable seats with very little legroom, and food was only available by purchase. Not worth paying the cost of a regular flight for a 5 hour flight!"
Cons: "There was a very long wait checking in and boarding and there was no kosher food available on the flight."
Pros: "It was on time, almost."
Cons: "They needlessly took our carry on luggage and checked it in, even though the dimensions were alright, and there was enough vacant and unused overhead space in the flight. The luggage took forever to arrive on the carousel, much to drones anxiety. Also, the gate information wasn't displayed on the TV screens.. Even though they knew it."
Pros: "The seats in the plane were amazing. Maybe older but better than the new ones."
Cons: "No infotainment screen"
Pros: "The plane was clean and on time."
Cons: "They charged for water! I couldn't get regular water on the plane. I had spent down all my euro, so I didn't have the 3 euro for a bottle of water. They would not accept American money either. After a while, I had to take a medication and needed water so went to one of the crew in his station to ask for it, explaining the situation. He gave me some water, but pretty much shamed me in the process. He was saying it was hard for the crew to have to charge, but they were made to do it now, and what would it look like if other passengers saw him giving me the water and not charging?! OMG!"
Pros: "USB socket and decent selection of movies, music etc."
Cons: "No wifi and no electrical socket. By row 43, they ran out of blankets and dinners other than beef. The check-in website looked like it was from the 1990s. When I had to pay for a second bag at the airport (IAD) on the outbound flight, it took 15 minutes. When I came (BRU), they told me to wait in 3 different lines, wasting 30 minutes, before I got to the correct line. Then board the flight to return was a 45 minute delay. It's like these guys were totally new to the airline business."
Pros: "Did not like airline so much."
Cons: "Staff did not allow access to lavatories when they were serving drinks and the long waits after were ridiculous"
Cons: "Departure delayed for unspecified reasons, most of the passengers like me had connecting flights and it was stressful"
Cons: "I have no words flew not honored and I had to buy a ticket at the airport. Thank you for your service!"
Pros: "good service clean"
Cons: "waiting a long time for luggage"
Pros: "Very old planes No entertainment Very nice stewardess"
Pros: "I eventually got home"
Cons: "I didn't get to sleep as I had to spend hours booking a new flight."
Cons: "I didn´t like arriving to Sevilla with no luggage and no explanation of its whereabouts. I appreciate finally getting it 4 days later but I was not happy about me having to spend time and money going back to the airport to get it myself since your company was unable to deliver it to me. I expect full compensation"
Pros: "Nice flight and very good Smoot Landing."
Cons: "I like Everithing. It was amazing. Ilove it. Thanks.Dr. Moctar Bayor,M.D."
