Boarding was seemless. As for the flight itself, we deiced the wings twice. Had to come back to check for mechanical issues leading to our flight arriving 3-hours late to destination. As for food choice, do not choose the pancakes as it was similar to eating sweet microwaved porridge.
The crew was very helpful.
Not to long of a trip, crew where very good.
Flight to Frankfurt was delayed,not enough time between the - flights- missed the Flight to Hannover Not happy !!
2.5hr delay and insufficient meal voucher
Pros: "We upgraded to business class so service was super attentive"
Cons: "Business class on AC was equal to premium economy on west jet but lwithout the amenities on west jet"
Cons: "L’attente et la difficulté à contrôler la température dans l’avion"
Pros: "Seats rotate during recline. Washrooms are nice and big. Window shades are electronic. Dims the cabin but you can still see out. Very comfortable. Very stable in the air, like a 747. Great entertainment package. Free wine."
Cons: "Pretty much the worst food I’ve had and I’ve travelled a lot, all over the world. You would think on a flight to Paris that the food would be excellent?!!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Honolulu. This made Customs and Screening stressful...as there was only 45 minutes to get through and then to the gate. No one advised that there was another plane shortly, which would have reduced the feeling that we had to sprint down to the gate. Otherwise a very good flight"
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight overall. That being said, I don’t mean nd turbulence, the air pockets really get to me. Great service though"
Pros: "Nice new aircraft. Very pleasant seating. Great entertainment"
Cons: "New aircraft was late arriving from toronto as usual and the toilet was busted meaning 25 people had to be shed from the flight to allow it to leave and we were then delayed and hour as baggage was transferred to another aircraft. Not AC's best performance."
Pros: "Not much. Crew was professional but that is about it."
Cons: "Tight spaces packed in like sardines. FAA seriously needs to look at how these airlines pack us into these seats. Can barely sit in the set, no room to stretch legs, tray table hits my stomach, and I don't even have a big belly. When the guy in front reclines, cannot even get out of my seat. Chaotic boarding process without any order or instructions or announcements, poor food and entertainment."
Cons: "Basic connection flight. Music was only entertainment."
Pros: "The desk staff were really helpful and unexpectedly accommodating."
Cons: "Seat pitch in economy is too tight to do work on a 14" laptop. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "The flight was so not packed. There were rows and rows of empty seats. I had a row to myself to sleep on, it was amazing."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Especially breakfast"
Pros: "787-9 Full Flat business class"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay."
Pros: "Quick little hop . . . I find that everyone (passengers and flight crew) tend to be in a good mood on these."
Cons: "We were disappointed we couldn't order from the flight menu."
Pros: "I was able to change my seat from a middle to a window. I also had an open seat next to me so I was not squeezed in. The person at the desk in Toronto was very pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Since I got a bike accident the day before I took off, I had difficulty doing simplest things, and, exceptionally, I had a lot of baggage. All employees, especially at boarding at FLL, helped me very kindly. Although I travel a lot, I rarely have used Air Canada for 30 years, since the time a steward dropped hot water on my thigh. From now on, I will use this airline again."
Pros: "Everything was quick and efficient in boarding and replanting, the captains spoke to us to tell us what was going on. Food was good."
Cons: "My tv screen was broken, meal service was pretty late and drinks were not served before, as a result the lights were only off in the flight for a very brief while."
Pros: "Air Canada is so willing to make changes at the last minute when I was at the airport. They put me on an earlier fight because I was there in very good time. Generally just a really lovely experience."
Cons: "I am not a large person, 5'4, size 8. I was uncomfortably cramped in my seat. How do they expect normal sized humans to fit here??"
Pros: "Everything on time"
Pros: "The meal (pasta) was good. The seat was roomy enough. The crew offered water and other beverages frequently. The"
Cons: "The snack (cold sandwich with nothing else) was disappointing. VERY limited entertainment options: rent an iPad and hope it has a movie you want to see, or nothing. Not good for a long flight Also had to restock the lavatory myself"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "There was 3 hour delay on the first flight, that made me miss my connecting flight then they booked another flight which was not a direct flight but with an additional stop. I reached Toronto 7 hours later than my original landing time"
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The plane was not clean, there was debris on all the seats. It was hot and smelly. I'm not sure if passengers brought food but very overpowering and gross. I wanted to vomit the entire flight."
Cons: "The plane was too old Did not prepare enough food No free snacks"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The attendants on the flight were very unprofessional - they laughed the entire time during our boarding and safety demo. They were more interested in talking to the ground crew outside then welcoming the guests on their flight."
Cons: "One of the crew member was so rude to petition. We were surprised and very unpleasant to watch her attitude and way she talked to people. So bad! And your costomer service phone lines are terrible!!!!! Never answer the phone and waiting time is over 30min! What kind of airline customer service line is this horrible?"
Pros: "I was able to use my iPhone, good thing I had an iPhone"
Cons: "I wasn't told to download the app before I got on the plane. It was a ten hour flight with limited entertainment on my iPhone. I was rebooked on SAS with my flight to Europe. SAS Entertainment and Food was much better than AirCanadas Entertainmnet and Food on the long flight from Montreal to Copenhagen."
Pros: "The flight from DC to Toronto was late around four hours and after we got on the plane We went back and we were waiting at the airport while get more fuel and which repaired the fault on the plane. so I was late for my next flight to FrankfurtSo I was put on a flight to Frankfurt with a connection in Lisbon.In the end, my suitcase was lost and I got it only two days later. Never I will no longer use AirCanada small planes !"
Pros: "Same. I was well taken care of despite the weather delay. Crew was friendly but more stressed and a little slow. Seats were comfortable and there was more leg room than normal."
Cons: "Not enough time with the lights off so we could sleep easier during the long flight."
Cons: "I bought the tickets two months in advance, but they put us on standby list when we got to the airport. They over sold. I couldn't believe that. We were told that we should have paid to choose our seats!!!"
Cons: "The movies selection is not good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not cater to the passengers. Every international flight I've been on, the crew members always ask if we want more snacks or drinks. I was never approached. Also, I asked for an extra blanket and was told no."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. Lady at the counter was not helpful at all. Although my main carrier for the international flight allowed 2 checked baggage free of charge, Air Canada only allowed one free baggage and 2nd baggage for $100 for the connection."
Pros: "No problems, friendly crew. I brought my own ear plugs because it was a prop plane, but it would be nice if they handed them out. It's loud in the cabin."
Pros: "My first flight on Air Canada ever. It was a short flight from Newark to Toronto. The flight was full and there wasn't enough room for all passengers' carry ons fit. The cabin crew worked cortiously, diligently and expeditiously to check those carry ones that could not fit."
Pros: "Good fight and crew was very good."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, decent entertainment choices."
Cons: "One the first part of my journey, our Air Canada flight was running over an hour late, which caused us to miss our connection in Zurich by about 3 minutes. The gate agents weren't all that helpful, and then the re-bookng desk in Zurich (not Air Canada's fault) was horrifyingly bad. We ended up missing a whole day in Barcelona. Then, the flight back from Barcelona to Toronto was also late, causing us to again miss our flight home to Houston. Again, the gate agents were completely confusing, leading us to initially believe we could make our flight, so we ran with suitcases only to learn that we hand't made it and that we might not even get out that night (we ultimately did). Our final flight was also late."
Pros: "Overall fair experience."
Cons: "First time flying air canada and flight was delayed 1 hour"
Cons: "Plane was very hot!"
Pros: "We booked the wrong date, no help given...."
Cons: "We booked the wrong date, the 200$ u.s. Change fee per person and the change fees were more than the tickets,....Why can't we get good customer service , something like let me help you..?. Could of kept us customers for life, now I will tell everyone I know to never use this company. To rebook the next day was another 550 Canadian"
