I never made it to calgary due to delays and missed flight
My mom & I were randomly chosen to sit in business class due to a weight imbalance in the plane. THANK YOU to the fight crew member that chose us. I know it was simply luck, but having that experience with my elderly mom, who’s never had that kind of splendor when taking a flight is something we’ll never forget!
Pros: "The agent was at the air Canada counter was amazing. He helped with getting my toddler a ticket, he walked us all the way to our gate because we were late boarding."
Cons: "My toddler should have been issued a ticket from the beginning if that’s the policy. It took forever to cross the airport and then i had to figure out where to get our tickets which took over an hour and then we had to go through tsa again. Thank God the agent helped us through. I ended up not having food nor water for my son nor myself and of course no service on the flight. It was a miserable day to say the least."
Pros: "quiet plane"
Cons: "2.5 hours delayed flight without prompt notifications. Honest and prompt flight-delay alerts. Updates for delay came *every* half-hour. No opportunity to schedule ANYTHING based truthful delay estimations and the lack of timely communication."
Cons: "Food at Air Canada. Very bad."
Cons: "This was a rebooked flight the next day, as we missed the flight the day before as TA was very late departing Istanbul"
Cons: "In 25 years of traveling I think this is the worst food I ever had in a airplane. Lucky that the butter and the bread were eatable"
Pros: "getting of the plane!"
Cons: "the bed bugs, no lights, no comfort, the cold, very limited service"
Cons: "There was a horrid family in the row in frony of me that absolutley refused to control their child at all, even when airline staff stepped in , so a really long flight was made to seem even longer and sleeping was out of the question."
Pros: "Once the flight left it was fine"
Cons: "Flight was late, gate was moved and no compensation"
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "except the snow in Canada"
Cons: "They charge us extra $140. Which they not supposed to. Your flight experience is very good. But airport experience was very Bad If possible please return our money which you taken On airport. Aircoditionar at thermal was bad too. They keep us (all passengers)stand around 30 min in that condition."
Cons: "Food is not appetizing, flight crews are just ok, entertainment are limited."
Cons: "Wirnessed a nasty discussion between crew member and passanger."
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: "OK, I get it, so they're not Southwest, I can't get credit on a future flight. But what's the advantage of giving me NO benefit for cancelling? I just didn't show up and they had a surprise empty seat at the last minute. Who wins?"
Pros: "Entertainment programes in TV is good"
Cons: "Seating leg space very congested"
Cons: "Longest check-in line I've ever waited in. Pure chaos and lack of organization. Plane boarded from both sides, creating boarding chaos. Unexplained hour delay on the runway."
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and kind"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "Every part of the experience was horrible from the lady who checked us in to the flight being cancelled after we were are the airport waiting for delayed flight. They did nothing to help us after and didn't rebook for almost 24hrs later when there were much better options to get us to our destination in time for the wedding we were going to. Horrible experience"
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked to Wednesday."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Pros: "Smooth sailing across the board."
Pros: "I was happy to be on the flight."
Pros: "The crew tried hard to give me more salad and bread since they didn't have a vegan option and meat was mix with the hot meal."
Cons: "In order to have a vegan or any special meal they ask you to call 48hs before. I've done online but the site I used for booking didn't pass the options requested. Then at checking counter they can't add it not even the return flight. This option should be able to be added anytime! Then why they can't put the meat aside for the hot plate so at least we could eat the rest. Also when preparing vegan or vegetarian meals you can just give cookies and cakes or white pasta! Any meal should be balanced, as for vegen meals it also have to have some vegetal complete protein combination."
Pros: "We had two different tickets, one on ANA and the other for Air Canada. The young lady at checkin linked them, checked our bags through Tokyo to Toronto AND got us boarding passes all the way. Without that help we would have missed our connection in Tokyo. Thanks SO much to ANA."
Pros: "This was a horrible experience throughout. From the start, we were told to board but left standing on the jetway for 15-20 minutes before we were allowed to board the plane and take our seats. Went downhill from there."
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No space, "Entertainment" had one use their own device but no place to power the device. Audacity to charge $10 to use a rental device for entertainment when other airlines provide free of charge. No air-circulation on board. Screaming children the ENTIRE 6 hour flight. No complimentary snacks."
Pros: "The 767 can be a nice plane when you don't try to cram almost 300 outdated seats onto it."
Cons: "Purchasing airline tickets is about the only thing I know of where the customer is not told what he is buying. This plane had no entertainment system and the bare minimum in legroom. I expect better from Air Canada. I will not book a long flight on Rouge - or Air Canada again. I am sick of the constant disappointment."
Pros: "Please post meal intentions on-line so I can plan for the possible need to bring food on board. I had repeated instances when my elbow would hit the buttons on the arm rest, thereby changing video/lights/call for help, etc. Poor ergonometric placement."
Pros: "Overall, it was a smooth flight and the staff was helpful throughout this long flight."
Cons: "My flight from Munich to Toronto did not have the ability to recharge technology in my seat. It was a 9 hour flight, and this would have been helpful. The flight data would not display in my seat. This would have been nice to have the ability to track our progress. It was displayed i some of the monitors, however not all of them."
Cons: "I had to pay for Internet despite being a Superelite customer (top Tier flyer on their program). The service was expensive and slow so I only used 30 minutes for $4. Having curtailed my work, I looked for news feeds and Rio Olympic coverage. There was neither. It spoilt an otherwise great experience"
Pros: "politeness and helpfulness of crew"
Cons: "boarding was very slow--people went to the gate unprepared -eg boarding passes misplaced and were not asked to step aside"
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Cons: "There were many delays, and I was put on an entirely different connecting flight making me several hours late to my final destination. My checked baggage was also lost and hasn't been found for two days now."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The crew member wasnt letting me on my connecting flight which i was late for because of delays Air canada caused for the previous flight. Even though my connection was grounded for an additional hour. Worst airline ive ever been on."
Pros: "First flight I've taken in a long time where there were any empty seats. The Manchester to Toronto leg was on time and there were no hassles or problems. The crew did a good job on the meal service and were attentive for drink service throughout."
Pros: "The entertainment/media center. The built-in digital movie, TV, music center was excellent! It was the only redeeming aspect of the flight. NOTE: one person in our party had a faulty unit that the volume went out of control when the crew spoke - she stopped using it as a result"
Cons: "The least comfortable flight I've taken for a long trip. My family complained constantly also, including my daughter that travels for pleasure more than I do. The seats seem impossible to get comfortable in. I'm 6 feet tall and 175 lbs and the seat is too narrow to try to do anything that sit up straight. The angle of the seat to the bottom of the seat in front make it difficult to find a comfortable position. Once I got my legs under the seat in front of me my own seat pad pushed into my thighs limiting the blood flow. The flight attendants on the flight there and the flight back seemed like they hated their job. Never cracked a smile and seemed to be trying to make it through their chores. They ALL seemed unhappy and stressed. The food was the worst we've ever had on any flight, domestic or international. The sandwich for lunch was TERRIBLE. Out of 5 people none of us finished it. We tore most of the puffy odd bread off of it which left the meat which lacked any discernible flavor - making it taste fake. Having visited a couple of 3rd world countries on this flight we felt more at risk of eating bad food on the airline than on the streets of Hanoi. First and last time we'll fly Air Canada."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay and this seems fairly standard with this airline. Going to Toronto we had two long delays and one cancelled flight."
Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Pros: "Captain kept the interested customers informed of how the Toronto Raptors game was progressing. Friendly crew. Upgraded to an economy premium rouge seat and was very comfortable."
Cons: "Checked in online but wasn't able to pay for luggage fee. Tried at Kiosk at Barbados airport and was directed to counter service which was a very long line. Selection of TV shows on AC app could be more current."
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant, upbeat, and excited to be back at Dulles. They will be offering 3 direct flights daily to Toronto which will be great!"
Cons: "We boarded over an hour late and departed over an hour and a half late and the plane only arrived about 10 minutes behind schedule. The staff seemed very new and was unable to get us out of the airport in a timely fashion which caused a few people to miss their international connecting flights."
