Pros: "Food OK, seating OK, crew professional."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Extremely delayed, and changed our seats to worse ones"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a bunch of varieties to keep you entertained for a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The delays were horrible!!! Had 4 flights with them. Seattle to Vancouver, Vancouver to Beijing, Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle. Seattle to Vancouver was delayed so long that we almost missed our connecting flight to Beijing. Because of that delay our baggage missed the Vancouver to Beijing flight and we had nothing for 2 days!!! It was a hassle to get some kind of compensation and just having to wear the same clothes for 2 days. Also the Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle flights were also delayed"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "I"
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Cons: "Food was grose. Seat was located on an emergency exit and supposed to be "preferred". Worst seat ever. Right next to the window is very uncomfortable since your stuck to the wall if the plane. Theres no window on that row. But this specific seat is awkward and very uncomfortable."
Cons: "No offer to have transportation to gate. I am disabled and had a very long walk."
Cons: "As soon as I got on the plane everything was fine but this flight was also delayed by an hour and I had my relatives waiting for me. On top of that they sent my bag to Buenos Aires which was the planes next destination. My bag was eventually brought to my home. Overall the experience with Air Canada has been horrible. And I lost 2 full days because of the airlines' delayed flights."
Pros: "plenty of room, media player, wifi, nice selection of snacks and meals."
Cons: "Party of 7, all split up in different seats. Aircanada was completely useless to help us out Big discussion on the plane with other passengers. Flight was delayed, lost our connection. 10 hours at toronto airport."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew took very good care of me. They made sure I had a comfort seat."
Cons: "No enough choice of movies"
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "Once again, they were late which meant that we missed our connection in Vancouver and had to overnight there."
Pros: "Nice to have free entreteinment"
Cons: "It was uneventful, nothing negative simply average"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entretainment system in this flight."
Cons: "Sits were way to small and the space is something to consider"
Pros: "Very good !"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "After a late flight from Halifax, found out that we had been bumped off our scheduled flight to Kingston. The next flight was more than three hours later - and this despite looking at our aircraft for another 10 minutes before it left the gate. We were told that the gate had been closed despite six of us on the same connection. When we asked about supper, we were given a $10 coupon - had some difficulty finding a place for dinner under $10 at Pearson."
Pros: "The crew members were polite and I know they were trying their best. I can't fault anyone individually for their performance."
Cons: "Although no-one specifically ruined the travelling aspect of my trip, being delayed, cancelled out due to weather, missing a whole day of my trip (out of a short 3 day vacation), never getting my baggage, and then damaging my baggage when I did everyday retrieve it, is unacceptable for an airline to get away with. They will certainly be getting a letter of complaint and a request for a refund."
Pros: "I thought the overall service was very good. I like how well the crew communicated with the passengers and how smoothly everything went."
Cons: "The food (dinner: chicken with rice, breakfast: eggs) was ok, maybe even a little yummy, but could've been better (eggs where a bit too wet). I also felt like the movie selection was rather disappointing. A lot of not so great hollywood blockbusters."
Cons: "I tried to call your airlines to reserve a spot for humanitarian supplies. I run a rescue for dogs in Cancun. I could never get through to anyone and there is no info on your tickets about the cost of a third bag. I was charged an extra $500.00 for two extra bags that were carrying donated supplies to help the animals. But your airline made it a useless endeavor because they ended up costing more than they were worth. The people at the gate were unbending and I'm so disappointed that it is more important to you to make money than help non-profit organizations. I have run Isla Animals for 15 years and have had much help from kind airlines, I won't be flying yours or recommending yours to any dog lovers."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food from McDonalds would have been 10 times better than food they served. I ate only 2 bites and it smelled bad and made me feel nautilus."
Pros: "Drinks were provided."
Cons: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Cons: "-very little leg room on rouge plane -do not own a device to watch movies etc -this is very exclusive and assumes that everyone has access to devices"
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air Canada Oversold my flight, the process of reaching my destination was incredibly painful and uncertain. For example -at one point an Air Canada service representative provided me with a ticket for my original flight with a seat assignment however when I tried to board the aircraft the gate agent confiscated the ticket and then destroyed it advising that I was not supposed to get a seat. Air Canada gate agents and check in staff were visibly struggling with the computer booking/reservation system at multiple points throughout this process. For example - at one point my bag was checked on a flight that I was not on and the gate agent openly expressed disbelief and concern that it was happening outside their control... very concerning."
Pros: "price"
Cons: "crew seemed very busy and did not care of passenger request, I had asked mote than 5 times for a cup of water for my 7 years old daughter and nobody came back with it. I had to be more directive to get it finally."
Cons: "As above I had two delays of three hours each"
Cons: "Even though we checked in early, and had a three hour layover, they managed to delay our bags. It will be also 36 hours until we have them."
Cons: "They lost my bag which was full of important clothing I needed for interviews this week."
Cons: "Not assigning a seat and giving me a stress of putting me on stand by for a ticket I had purchased!!!!"
Cons: "Did not have any monitors 9 hour flight with nothing to view"
Pros: "Everything was basically on time."
Cons: "Air canada should still give snacks like west jet."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "The fact that they changed the gate and didn't bother to let anyone know until after the flight was actually meant to leave. Also leaving nearly two hours late."
Pros: "There is not one thing that was good about this flight. Bad plane, bad service, bad food. That sums it up. Will talk to as many travelers as I can to tell them to avoid this nightmare."
Cons: "No entertainment on board. No complimentary drinks. A piece of cold banana bread literally thrown on the tray for breakfast. Called the airline when reservation was made and told it would have entertainment and complimentary drinks. The switch to Rouge was a bait and switch. Rouge is from the 1970s. Long flights to sit and stare at the back of seat. Crowded seat at that. NEVER WILL FLY AIR CANADA AGAIN"
Cons: "No complementary food"
Pros: "The flight on its own was just fine."
Cons: "We were delayed about five hours because of a mechanical issue, resulting in a plane change. Although it was apparent they knew about this well in advance, we were not told ahead of time. We could have spent way less time in the airport. The staff were all very friendly, but when it came to compensation we were only given a $10 meal voucher near the end of our five hour wait. Most people had eaten by then, so it felt like it was the very least they could do to make up for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "My husband being injured and in severe pain!!! It ruin our anniversary which was on the exact date of the accident, 4/8!! The sandwich had a razor thin slice of turkey on a big roll!! Shane on them!"
Pros: "view of the Andes was amazing."
