2hours delayed and didn't give notification right away 🤷‍♀️. I even lost my food to rush to go to the airport. Paid $60 for seafood plate ending just leave it almost halfway on my way to the airport find out the flight was delayed. I wish they have more accurate policy to let passengers knows for any problems about the flight as soon or as early they can

Pros: "Plenty of room."
Cons: "Heavier snacks."
Cons: "Delayed flight planning - would have been nice to delay the flight before boarding."
Pros: "I never boarding this flight."
Cons: "Better communication skills."
Pros: "Great crew!!"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow!"
Cons: "On board entertainment was inop, making for a long (4) hours flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 3 hrs. Ran out of food right before my row. I upgraded my seat but feel I got the short end of the stick."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "My 'window' seat had no window! Feeling was claustrophobic"
Pros: "The service by delta employees for this leg of my journey was beyond great. The leg room was above average."
Cons: "Leg room. Never can have enough leg room."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."
Pros: "Departing"
Cons: "More than 4.5 hrs in taxi waiting to take off. Due to “few rain” and after 3.5 hrs we needed to refuel when we were about FINALLY close to our turn for take off. Horrible service by DELTA. Never flying again with them"
Cons: "The pilot was a Daredevil"
Pros: "overall flight great,pleasant trip, courtious well informed crew"
Cons: "In flight entertainment screen down"
Pros: "This was a much bigger plane so my comfort lever was better."
Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"
Cons: "The landing was somewhat frightening."
Cons: "yet another oversold and crammed into a plane flight from delta. the crew were nice and all...but the passengers were all ready to be throw into a battle royal pit to actually get on the plane. Getting real tired of this"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and personable. Beverage service was consistent and efficient. Entertainment and free WiFi messaging were great perks."
Cons: "The positives don’t even come close to offsetting the misery of Delta’s seats. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so cramped and uncomfortable. I’m not an abnormally large man - 6 feet 200 lbs - and there was no room for my legs or my shoulders in an “upgraded economy” seat. I fly weekly for work on another major airline, and only took this one in a crunch. But I am quite certain this was my last Delta flight and I’ll be advising others similarly. The service and entertainment aren’t sufficient to mask an awful seat configuration."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Freezing flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was so polite and willing to help."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be looked at. Maybe creating better zone style lanes might work, it's always a hassle and always a pain in the a** trying to navigate my way to the boarding door."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was nice to have, and the rebooking was easy. Flight crew was great."
Cons: "Flight arrived a few minutes late and had to run to the next terminal to catch a connecting flight. Arrived in time, but the gate agent closed the gate early, causing me and several others to be stuck in ATL overnight. Ended up having to pay for a hotel and rental car that went unused."
Cons: "I didn’t like having to pay for bags and headphones."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Waited 45 minutes for de-icing"
Pros: "Service was great. Regular drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Best part of the flight was to experience the joy of talking to loved once from the cloud, thank you delta for providing free wifi in the cloud. You have won my heart!!"
Cons: "To pay for food and a drink!! Please bring them back!!"
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "delay delay delay"
Cons: "Food sold out and there was nothing left"
Pros: "Special staff great pilots snacks free movies safety"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Quick friendly service from crew and captain."
Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."
Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."
Pros: "It was whatever"
Cons: "I liked it all"
Cons: "I froze on the way to Las Vegas and there weren't enough blankets."
Pros: "The process was very quick and easy, from after security the process was smooth and fast."
Cons: "The gate that I was assigned to was a little overcrowded but I believe it could be because of the construction that is happening in the area. Also the security process was a little long."
Pros: "Nice courteous cabin staff."
Cons: "See comment above"
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Two out of three flights were delayed, customers service of the flight operated by Delta airlines is a nightmare and on top of it 2hours and 40min delayed. No drinks, no snacks, nothing."
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "We were traveling with a group of 8, only 3 of us had assigned seats when were arrived and the others were on standby. We asked the attendant at the gate desk if there was any chance that the rest of us on standby could be seated together... HE UPGRADED OUR WHOLE GROUP TO COMFORT and allowed us to all sit with each other. Greatest flight experience I've had and such great staff with Delta. Will fly Delta going forward whenever I have a a chance (flew Southwest the rest of our trip - service, cleanliness, friendliness didn't compare)."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Was ok"
Pros: "We arrived in Las Vegas"
Cons: "Even in first class, it appeared to me that the legroom has been decreased."
Pros: "Good entertainment with games for kids, movies etc."
Cons: "No meals (5+ of flying), need to buy earphones, no place for hand lauggudge"
Pros: "Not happy"
Cons: "I was given a hard time on getting my boarding pass printed. They made me waknback and forth twice to clear up this situation. Delta said I had to pay extra to cover the fare. Even the "special services" did not give any great service. Alex me think twice abotnbooking through this and delta.!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and polite!"
Cons: "My cell phone needed a charge but I did not realize that at my feet was a place to plug in a USB cable! This is great to have, when this is available it would be great to let the passengers know!"
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Boarding was good first time flying first class not happy with service when I wanted another Drink had to walk to very back of plane all the flight attendants were hanging in the back tiger no one was in the first class section. In the beginning of the flight took forever to get a drink I have had Reg class has better service. Flew Detroit to Vegas 4.5 hours"

Both flights delayed multiple times. Terrible customer service. Ever desk I went to thd refused to help and told me to go to another desk. I'll be contacting west jet today.

Cons: "Will never fly with WestJet again regardless of price."
Pros: "when you enter Canada and then travel through YVR for another flight it is a total waste. Not the fault of the airline but the way they do things with security"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could under the conditions"
Cons: "There was a broken toilet that was very loud and created long line ups because economy only had use of the 1 bathroom while the first class had 2 bathrooms for so few people"
Cons: "the boarding process was chaotic. not enough time was allowed for zone 1 passengers. the plane was old. the inflight entertainment didn’t work. the crew was friendly though. there was no hot food but the cold selections were ok. i would expect a much better customer experience for business class passengers."
Cons: "I don’t like the charge for checked bag. It encourages people to bring too many and too large bags onto the plane."
Cons: "Wake people up when serving anything.. I have seen in some other airlines that one is provided with a sticker to place on your seat to show if you can or cannot be woken up"
Pros: "over great job and service."
Pros: "Just a nice easy flight with zero issues"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost 4 hours, which we got notified over 12 hours prior departure time. Offer different flight options, or maybe switching the airline without an extra fee. Compensation!"
Pros: "Flight was excellent. Crew was very courteous and very friendly."
Cons: "The only thing I wish I had more was more other options for fluid besides water."
Pros: "Kayak is great for finding the right flights that fit my travel schedule. WestJet staff are very friendly and are very helpful getting you on board the plane."
Cons: "The WestJet BASIC fare restrictions are very anti-customer centric. I know the fare is about price only. However, prior to the change the airfares were the same, but the restrictions, like missed flights were less penalizing. This fare structure is a WestJet - Win; Customer - Lose."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Poor service before boarding."
Pros: "As always, great service and flight"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "I cancelled my trip back and I had to call 4 times to West jet just to get an answer to my request. And by the end nothing got done."
Pros: "Good legroom compared to other carriers"
Cons: "Almost 1 hour late leaving. No westjet connect, so no entertainment."
Pros: "The manager who finally helped me was friendly and listened the entire time even when I was angry. She was concerned and helped me the best she could. The stewards are always friendly"
Cons: "There was only one agent on to check tickets. I was in line for 45 minutes and when I got to her, she just said over and over, there is nothing I can do, your flight time was just cut off. I would have to wait until the flight the next day. Even though I had no bags and there was still 35 minutes before take off. I also told her I knew I would be late and so spoke to someone from Westjet he night before. She smiled like I was lying to her. Lines should not be so black and white. If she would have just processed my ticket I would have had 35 minutes to get to my gate instead of 10. When you are flying with half full planes there should really be better ways to manage customer service."
Pros: "Always a pleasure flying with Westjet! We even arrived 15 minutes early"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, uneventful which for a plane ride is great"
Cons: "Nothing really, plane was smaller than expected with limited overhead space but everything was able to fit in the bin"
Pros: "Love flying with westjet as the staff are always kind and going above and beyond for the guests."
Cons: "They did not serve coffee on this flight."
Pros: "Flight steward did a good job explaining safety procedure for exit door"
Cons: "One hour and ten minutes late. Arriving after midnight with one notification of a 30 minute delay not 70."
Cons: "The flight delay"
Pros: "Everything from boarding early to funny safety announcement was awesome."
Cons: "I think they should remove the ability to have people lean back in their seats on the shorter flights. It’s clostraphobic when some feel they have to have a ‘lay back nap’ for such a short flight. It is like you have zero breathing room and feels like they are encroaching on my breathing space. People, the seats are already too close together must you lay back?"
Pros: "Crew were wonderful."
Cons: "There was no westjet connect on the flight. Which is fine for a short flight, except that before west jet got rid of their TVs this flight had entertainment."
Pros: "Yes we got home on time ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Food and entertainment are not options on this short flight."
Pros: "friendly"
Cons: "unfair airport taxes...we really get screwed by our government"
Pros: "Lots of room and overall smooth flight. Watched the free wifi entertainment, not the most current but a good selection."
Cons: "It was chilly on the flight despite not having the vents turned on in my row and blankets are no longer provided without cost. I did not want to be cold but I also did not want to own a west jet blanket."
Cons: "Was delayed 3 times"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to start at 10:20, but was delayed for at least 30 with no updates. In fact, they were still showing the flight as leaving on time up until the last second, which is not ok. Gotta keep the passengers updated folks!"
Pros: "Our flight from Australia was delayed, resulting in our missing our connecting Westjet flight. Not only did Westjet get us on the next available flight, but the staff were friendly and very helpful. They made it seem like it was no problem at all, even though we were on the cheapest fare."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Left late but arrived on time!,"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "The people, the timeliness, the attitudes - all were great!"
Cons: "The choice of snacks could be more healthy - veggie cup and hummous maybe!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and the plane was not packed like the previous one, so it was good there was room to stretch out the legs."
Cons: "Having to board the plane walking outside.It was raining and there were puddles everywhere. Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The staff remained positive in a negative situation."
Cons: "The time delay was unfortunate. If we receive a reimbursement for out lost time, everyone will respect WestJet again."
Pros: "Clean safe flight at affordable fares"
Cons: "Some in flight entertainment would be nice"
Pros: "They tried"
Cons: "Too many delays. Somehow waiting party told flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "No wine to purchase this time"
Pros: "Staff were so friendly and helpful"
Cons: "No vegetarian stuff inflight. Plz suggest to westjet."
Pros: "The breezy, confident preflight announcements of the crew, including (from the Captain) "We are flying into Kelowna today, where the weather is always awesome even though it is a bit overcast and 5 degrees C..." and from the flight attendant on landing, "We have arrived in Kelowna. If you live here--Lucky You! You are almost home! And if you don't live here, welcome to the Okanagan! We hope you enjoy your stay." I was only disappointed that the sentence including 'lucky you' was not included in the French translation. C'est d'hommage..."
Pros: "Not much.... so..so"
Cons: "Crew. & entertainment ( why pay for it )"
Cons: "Cabin was too cold"
Pros: "Timing flights were on time."
Cons: "Baggage delay at vancuvour and as well as in calgary."
Pros: "All Good"
Cons: "After landing in Edmonton could of been on next flight to Kelowna ended up waiting 1 1/2 for second flight to Kelown"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, efficient boarding."
Cons: "The entertainment system crashed about 3 hours into the flight and had to be shut down"
Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."
Pros: "There were no issues whatsoever, all went as planned."
Pros: "We did not have to wait long in Calgary after landing and arriving at our luggage carousel. Our two bags were not only first off the belt but side-by-side and we were away in no time-- that never happens!"
Pros: "Got there"
Cons: "Way too expensive"
Pros: "Lovely staff, new plane, great entertainment options"
Pros: "The crew was average"
Cons: "It was an average flight ... nothing to complain about !"
Pros: "Good Flight"
Cons: "I was satisfied with all service"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "There is completely no free snacks, just drinks (excluding alcohol). The maintenance didn't sign some papers for the plane which cause the unnecessary delay."
Cons: "More drinks, snacks"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."
Pros: "The seat space was good and the flight ended without incident."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which happens, but there was no communication as to why or how long it would be or any other information. In flight the crew were barely visible as I had to ask for refreshments and then they brought it around for everyone. Next was cleanup which took way longer before it showed up."
Pros: "Beautiful new 787"
Cons: "Entertainment options could be more plentiful."
Cons: "poor entertainment choices. Reading lights didn't work. I traveled with my wife, we were unable to read because reading lights didn't work."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew helped make the situation better but a 3 hour delay made my experience unpleasant."
Pros: "Arriving safely. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "The same issue regarding no bottled water. Very turbulent flight. My bag and contents were damaged and Air Canada agent is stating that it is NOT covered!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Pros: "The staff were great!! So friendly and helpful although it was an hour wait to get to customer service she was very helpful in getting me on a flight hours earlier than the one I was booked on. She was very empathetic to the fact I was supposed to be in Calgary at 10:30am and the flight I was booked on wasn't going to get me there until 11:30pm"
Cons: "All day I had been reset for flights I were going to miss. When I fianally made it to Toronto and I get put on the 3rd flight to leave for Calgary...thankfully for the last noted above. In the end I missed my ride from the airport and had to rent a car. It made for a very long day!! Although the staff were friendly I just felt shuffled all day"
Pros: "its was smooth"
Pros: "Quick flight. Great fare pice."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The trip took about 48 hours. After a cancelled flight I got no hotel discount. Several flights were delayed or cancelled and in the end I ended up just going to a city 3 hours from where I live and renting a car to drive home. My luggage still hasn't arrived. This was the worst, most stressful travel experience of my life."
Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."
Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "Crew were likeable, worked hard and very friendly."
Cons: "However, waiting for a pilot, no snacks included, and an entertainment system that didn't work turned this flight from routine to a disaster."
Cons: "There was a build-up of delays for domestic flights, namely from Toronto to Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary (the ones I heard). I was on the Toronto to Calgary flight, which was supposedly delayed from 16:45 till 18:55 EST, but the actual boarding time was closer to 19:45 EST. Once all the passengers were boarded, the crew informed us that the pilot was missing. Another 20 minutes went by before he was located, at which point we were informed that the first mate was missing as well. By the time the pilot and first mate were both on the aircraft, it took another 30 minutes for them to get the aircraft ready. My flight from Toronto to Calgary was supposed to arrive at 19:40 MDT, the actual arrival time was 23:00 MDT. As a passenger, I am annoyed to say the least."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "I had a very large man behind me and couldn't recline my seat an ounce therefore I couldn't sleep the entire flight. I think if your a certian size you should have to buy a seat with more room instead of make everyone else uncomfortable. The food was almost inedible, and there wasn't much more than chips or chocolate bars to pick up in That section of the Airport before flying out :( Entertainment choices were excellent though!"
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "I had my checked baggage held up in Calgary for one day. Then on the way back it was held up again in Calgary. This time it took 6 days,and no one could tell me where it was. It will be my first and last Air Canada flight."
Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Pros: "Staff were very nice"
Cons: "2 out of 4 of my meals were incorrect. I had asked for vegan meals and 2 of them were clearly not vegan."
Cons: "Missed the flight due tot eh first delay then the next one got delayed too"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and helpful!"
Cons: "This was the last leg of a 24 hour journey from Venice to Seattle for my sister and me. After having a 3 1/2 hour layover, our plane was supposed to leave at 6:30 PM and kept getting delayed. One of the biggest frustrations was the lack of communication by the staff! We could see them at the counter where our gate was but no one would come out and talk to us! Our plane finally got off the ground at 8:30 PM!"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Everything was as scheduled"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Pros: "Wifi was a bonus (not free, but was good to have, and worked well). Staff was friendly."
Pros: "On time, excellent flight."
Cons: "There was only a very limited choice of movies to select from."
Cons: "It was late arriving in from TO. We had to pre board due to a handicapped companion and there was no time to settle with all the rest of the passengers shoving to get on due to the lateness. The majority of the flight was through turbulence. No one helped with placing bags for the handicapped in the overhead. They did not call for the wheelchair at arrival nor was there an attendant att arrival to push the chair up the ramp."
Cons: "The boarding crew did a poor job of giving direction. In spite of the fact that boarding by zone was not specified, I was reprimanded by staff for boarding when I did. I found it very disrespectful that the staff reprimanded me for their own error. When I pointed out that they had not called a zone the ground staff lied and said they had called the zone. I strongly recommend staff receive remedial customer service training. This was an incredibly negative experience - not to mention undermined the otherwise decent experience that the Air Canada flight team provided."
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: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
