Pros: "Great flight crew and smooth landing"
Cons: "Pretzels are not a good snack"

Pros: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"

Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"

Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."

Cons: "Not enough movie options"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "My wife’s screen did not work. The pitch between the seats was too narrow for a transatlantic flight. Older plane that needed to be cleaned and updated."

Pros: "Convenient quick. No stop overs"
Cons: "could have used more room"

Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful."

Pros: "Smooth as you like"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."

Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."

Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"

Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."

Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"

Pros: "They allowed us to make an earlier connection without any fee. That was very kind. Thank you."

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."

Pros: "Short flight so can't say much. Lol"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."

Pros: "I'll like it when i board."
Cons: "The fact i haven't boarded yet."

Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."

Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."

Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"

Cons: "N/c"

Pros: "On time Excellent take off and landing Good service"

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Cons: "They lost our checked baggage. Luckily we did get them back within 20 hours."

Pros: "Seats were pretty comfy, snack provided even though the flight was short"
Cons: "Cabin could have been a little cleaner before boarding"

Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"

Pros: "Everything on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."

Pros: "Air Canada is not a goo Air Lines for customer service."
Cons: "I do not like there customer service policy."

Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."

Pros: "Airbus 380"

Pros: "Same as anove"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Cons: "No good movies or music"

Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."

Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."

Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"

Cons: "There was no access to movies."

Pros: "as above"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Space and meals"
Cons: "Entainment"

Pros: "Comfortable and large plane with tvs"

Pros: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."

Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"

Pros: "The plane was fairly modern and the seating had more leg room than many other economy flights I have taken. The flight attendants were friendly and courteous. All-in-all a very good flight. I was especially appreciative of the concessions made for skiers when it came to luggage. Also, the luggage fees were very reasonable."
Cons: "I was a bit surprised that no snacks were offered free of charge. I can understand that meals are not included in economy, but nuts, cookies or some pretzels would be nice."
