Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour. We still managed to make our scheduled rendezvous."
Cons: "The flight was late arriving, so consequently we had to pay a taxi to hotel, as shuttle had finished for the night. Air Canada staff let people know 10 mins prior to boarding that we needed the app to view movies in-flight. Most people couldn't download quick enough, & airport Wifi was not optimal"
Cons: "Ran out of the best meal option in Business Class..."
Pros: "Thank goodness there was lots of room on this plane, makes it much nicer"
Cons: "Old plane, and business class is just ok. So sad that Air Canada is only flying this route with Rouge... they just are ok. Boarding was a gong show - they blocked off the area with little posts to keep people organized and were boarding a big flight to Tokyo right beside us. Horrible."
Cons: "They wouldn’t wait 10 minutes for us to arrive on our incoming flight."
Pros: "Everything was cool. Great staff and got there in time good movies and snacks. No complaints."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Confort of the plane in general and the personal device for entertainment."
Cons: "The procedure to board."
Cons: "Again very disappointed. No food, no flight monitoring and no tv access. Felt very "cheep". Cop o see idea far far better."
Pros: "Flight was ok overall. Staff were nice."
Cons: "I don't think there was enough crew on board to serve all the passengers. Water was only offered once. I did get to watch free movies from Vancouver to Toronto. However, you had to pay for entertainment from Toronto to Costa Rica"
Cons: "Delay in YUL...5 mins turned into 60...almost missed travel in SJO to final destination"
Pros: "Once on plane all OK"
Cons: "Check in unhelpful to being rude by ignoring people and avoiding getting advice from higher ups. Worst service I Have experienced in 60 years of air flight three times a year ,at least"
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "No movies"
Pros: "Disable passenger here. They were very helpful and accommodating"
Pros: "We were given a $10 meal voucher in Toronto for the 2hr delay, nothing was done for us in windsor after waiting close to 5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Windsor to Toronto for hours the. Again from Toronto to San José."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Crew on flight from Toronto to San Jose were friendly. Crew on home flight very aloof."
Cons: "Did not know you should pre book food. They ran out. Very frustrating. Said they had breakfast food and snacks. All that was left by the time they got to our seats were chips and nuts. And they didn’t seem to care. Entertainment worked better on way back. Could not get it going on way there, even with crew assistance. Line ups for check in in San Jose were crazy. Over 40 minutes."
Pros: "we had a very good seating distance in row 15"
Cons: "the cabin service was simply bad: very limited meal offerings, drinks were not cold, flight attendants were pretty arrogant."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Air Canada has one of the best buy on board menu's of any North American carrier. They even allow you to purchase Business Class meals (subject to availability of course). Flying on the older 767-300ER also has more shoulder and leg room than some of Air Canada's newer configurations for the 787 and 777."
Cons: "Air Canada's boarding process is a bit frustrating. On American Airlines and United Flight attendants make announcements over the PA to (a) step out of the aisle to let people pass, and (b) place larger suitcases in the overhead and smaller bags under the seat. That way they try to ensure there is enough bin space to accommodate everyone. Passengers on Air Canada stuff everything in to the overhead bin and nothing under their seat, leaving little for those boarding after and delaying the flight because flight attendants are looking for bin space. If they were more pro-active, it would speed things up."
Pros: "The Embraer jet was newer and roomier. Nice to have a movie"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Can't keep to their schedule. I was supposed to arrive home at 15:50 pm. Try 1 am. Every time our plane came in they sent it to another city or switched our gate. All if their flights were delayed. Customer service was non existent. We were treated worse than animals."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "We flew premium economy, and it was so much better than regular economy. Seating just two across made my wife's and my journey much easier. The crew was attentive when they needed to be, and the food was quite good. I managed to sleep several hours, which is about as good as it gets on a long haul flight."
Cons: "I was surprised at the selections available for movies and TV; not much that was appealing. Took a Singapore air flight a few days later and felt like the selections were better. But we brought an iPad and had downloaded House of Cards, so we were OK. Besides, I got to sleep."
Pros: "Clean well maintained aircraft, friendly staff"
Cons: "Not even SNACKS are free anymore on Air Canada!"
Pros: "A great flight!"
Pros: "The plane was really comfy and the service on board was outstanding"
Pros: "I appreciated the early flight, that it was a direct flight, ability to make connection and then complete my journey in one long day. It was on time, smooth flight. Appreciated the offer of water regularly during the flight."
Cons: "Surprised that there is no longer even a small complimentary snack offered."
Pros: "Seat were comfortable (however the struggle is when you have someone with long legs behind you...)"
Cons: "Entertainment was using the app, they could have had a sign at the gate so those of us that didn't have it could have download it before boarding."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew courteous."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "I find the seats on the plane very uncomfortable."
Cons: "the staff at Toronto airport are awful. all of them gave me different instructions when my reservation between Toronto and Newark was cancelled. they left my checked in my suitcase at Toronto and delivered to my apartment 2 days after. I don't want to use them again!"
Cons: "This is not an Air Canada flight, is a Rouge flight, meaning there is no service, no screens, not even blankets on board. I didn't know that until after confirming my reservation, and it makes all the difference. For a low cost flight, the service is ok, but it shouldn't be advertised as Air Canada at all."
Cons: "After making if through a very busy customs and security line i make it to my gate only to find out that they lost my bag and they can't let me on my flight. I have been waiting in line for 3 hours to know what they are going to do to fix it and i'm still waiting.... i have flown with them before and it was fine but this is just ridiculous."
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Cons: "Air Canada over booked the flight from toronto to Montreal and approximately 10 pax were surprised - at the gate!!! - that no seat is available on the plane although we booked this flight months in advance. It is a shame. Although we recieved 200 dollar compensation check it does not cover damage has been done for me at this trip because of my late arrival to a very important business meeting. It is really not fare and shame."
Pros: "Spacious flight Cozy environment Comfortable sitting"
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Pros: "As usual the crew aboard the plane was fantastic. I enjoy the flight from Calgary to Toronto. The planes have the onboard entertainment systems with newer movies for free. Free wifi should be a thing."
Cons: "Few cookies or something snack like would be nice"
Pros: "Loved the premium economy seat! Would definitely fly again with Air Canada. The first meal was very good. The snack wasn't too exciting. Skipped last meal."
Cons: "Complimentary earphones! They hurt and the sound quality was horrible. I couldn't hear the words when I tried to watch a movie. I ended up having to borrow my kid's kiddie headphones. I would tell anyone flying w AC to bring their own ear/headphones!"
Pros: "I really liked that there were free in-flight movies/tv and that everyone had their own screens so you could choose what to watch or you could have a map pulled up on the screen to show you how far you have travelled and how much further you have left to travel."
Cons: "There wasn't any food offered, no free peanuts/pretzels or food to buy. It wasn't the end of the world or anything but it seemed kind of odd to me. It's also a good thing that I had a movie option because if I didn't then my entire flight would have been filled with the sounds of some children's show that was blasting from a parents laptop and could be heard throughout the entire plane. I was really surprised that none of the flight attendants either asked them to turn it down to a reasonable volume or requested that they give the child headphones."
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to every single person that asked for anything on the flight. Even someone asking for a simple glass of water was given attitude. I booked my seats over the phone and they were not the seats they told me they were. Aweful service"
Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "No food. Pretzels or cookies."
Pros: "Everything was great in the premium seats (first row)."
Cons: "The seats could use a foot rest to help passengers sleep better."
Pros: "Clean and new airplane"
Cons: "boarding process missing baggages unfriendly crews"
Cons: "Misinformation on baggage allowance for Tango flights."
Pros: "Crew was very kind and courteous."
Cons: "Air Rouge app is awful. I'm fairly certain there are 11 year olds designing better apps on their parents PCs. Very slow, a lot of stopping, poor control over music and movie. Also, a piece of overly sweet banana bread does not a continental breakfast make."
Pros: "A clerk of ANA was awesome."
Cons: "The flight to Tokyo was changed at the airport because Air Canada had overbooked and the seats were fully checked-in. So I could not get on my booking flight and had to wait for them to arrange new flight from another air company, to check in it and board for more than 5 hours in the airport!"
Cons: "Staff don't understand the rules clearly"
Cons: "Sound wasn't working on TV set."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Trouble at gate landing. Took a long time to off load"
Cons: "My wife & I sat apart for the entire trip b/c Air Canada did not allow us to pick our seats till 24 hrs before the flight, except by paying a fee!"

This flight never happened. We were not even in the airport because the connection was delayed hours past when this one was supposed to leave. Everyone knew it would be. But United didn’t say anything until they canceled it at it’s departure time.

East Peasy

Pros: "Comodidad en el avión"
Cons: "Hay desorden en la coordinación de los vuelos, atrasos, yo tuve un atraso de 11 horas, otros perdieron conexión, y no es tampoco porque se paga barato, porque los pasajes están caros"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Pros: "On time, nice stewardesses who kept after drinks, offered refills, good snack(maple cookie) pilot again commented. Comments on turbulence especially calming. Also like a little geography like what river we are over. Deveops personal relationship"
Cons: "It was a fine flight but let me talk about boarding in general. After your special groups seems like you should load back of plane first? Window seats first? Boarding is a series of hurry up and wait experiences. I do not like feeling like cattle waiting in gate ramp or walk then in aisles. Must be better way. Please don't let people bring on 3 personal items and carryon. Make them check carryon or?"
Pros: "Kept getting bumped into"
Cons: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Cons: "Need more leg room and more movie options. Also crew needs to be a little nicer lol"
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "Lovely helpful crew."
Cons: "Fee for WiFi & for any kind of entertainment. Also mild confusion with boarding- -stood outside plane for several minutes. Difficult to hear when we were supposed to board."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "The AC did not work so we had to dboard and then get back on. Other than that, it was a good flight"
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Cons: "Hours and comfort was horrible"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."
Pros: "There really wasn't anything good about this flight!"
Cons: "We were delayed about 4 hours leaving, first delayed, then cancelled, then reinstated with a stop in Chicago so switch crew. The plane's AC didn't work on the ground so it was hot while we sat there. Arrived in SFO about 8-9 hours late, missed all connecting flights home and then they wanted us to spend the night. It was less than a 2 hour drive home so I ended up renting a car and doing that!"
Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I didn't like anything ppl were rude."
Cons: "I didn't like that both my flight were delayed. One was"
Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
