Cons: "There was not enough room for my carryon for some reason and so I had to sit with my knees up and feet on my bag. Not the worst but there should be enough carry on space for everyone."

Cons: "delay of 1 hr."

Pros: "The staff were nice enough on the plane"
Cons: "They said we were pre boarding so we went and stood in line with our 2 year old. Finally after 15 minutes they actually started letting the line through when they could have just waited 15 minutes to even announce the pre-boarding line. Then we boarded the plane and it was late and another 30 minutes waiting to fly. There was no TVs.. and whatever, we brought our iPad We got to Edmonton and our car seat was quite damaged. West jet couldn’t give us anywhere near the car seat we have and not one that fits in my car."

Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"

Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "All good! No complaints!"

Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"

Cons: "I’m disappointed that west jet became such a budget airline, it used to be my favourite. Now there’s no monitors, you got to use up your own power from devices. I prefer to save my battery when travelling."

Cons: "cabin was too hot"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Seats are tooo small. Plane too warm and air nozzle pressure too weak. Shape of window made seat even more narrow. Wow!"

Cons: "No delays"

Cons: "The delay was ridiculous. Seats are the usual tiny ones so for a big guy they suck but over all great trip"

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: "Crew as always with air Canada were very accommodating. Always smiling!"

Cons: "The wifi never worked and the attendant did not really care"

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: "On time"

Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."

Cons: "Wifi didn’t work after I paid for it"

Cons: "Paid full fare ticket and boarding as a Zone 5."

Pros: "I like the service I receive ."
Cons: "I didn't like the walking to and from the plane."

Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"

Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"

Pros: "but only a few minutes late arriving ..."
Cons: "Boarded on time then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for the water truck."

Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "The seating on the airbus 319 in main cabin is very cramped. Prefer Westjet 737. Will use them in future."

Cons: "Hey there good Air Canada folks. I'm a full-time, working, touring musician. I enjoy flying your airline overall, but touring with an acoustic guitar and/or a banjo is constantly stressful. There are clear guidelines about your policies for musical instruments posted on your website, yet your employees never seem to know them. Please have something posted for them at the gates, so I don't have to convince them EVERY TIME that it's okay for me to carry on my instrument in a soft case. A side note: Since airlines started charging for baggage, people are desperate to carry on as much as possible. This means there is always a struggle now against people with a bunch of clothing and personal items in their rolling luggage, to fit the instrument that is my LIVELIHOOD on the plane. Please find a way to make touring with Air Canada easier for musicians. At least return to gate check policies."

Pros: "The landing of the aircraft was second to none when we landed in Calgary."
Cons: "The seats we were sitting in were uncomfortable. There seemed to be a ridge near the back of the seat cushion and it was very uncomfortable for the entire trip."

Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"

Cons: "See the above review"

Cons: "Too hot and cramped"

Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"

Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"

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: "Kayak did not allow us to reserve seats, and the seats we received were not together, even though we purchased the seats six months in advance. My seat was at the front facing rear wards, with a non-tilting seat and little foot room."

Pros: "Ample legroom and very pleasant and helpful onboard staff."

Cons: "The screen was not responding well"

Pros: "Everything was as scheduled"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Eventually they got us there."
Cons: "They cancelled the sat flite. Little communication . Left us after 6 hours and 11 pm to fend for our selves with no luggage. No compensation. It was awful."

Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."

Cons: "Engine noise unbearably loud French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"

Pros: "This was my third air canada rouge flight so I knew what to expect. Staff are always super courteous and good food options available."
Cons: "Almost 0 arm/leg room, flight was delayed and they tried bumping me off my flight onto another because they had overbooked."

Cons: "LGA Gate #6 and #7 to cold, people were freezing. Also, those two gates are like cattle barn."

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive when I did. I had to spend several hundred dollars on cloths for me and my niece so that we had what we needed for the two days it took to get our bags."

Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."

Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"

Pros: "NOTHING AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SERVICE"

Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"

Pros: "It was quick and easy and saved me a hour drive!"

Pros: "Every aspect of the flight was great."
Cons: "I have only marked food and comfort down due to my height (6ft 3), whilst more room than some aircraft, I was unable to get comfortable - not the airlines fault I can't fly premium or business class."

Pros: "good take off, land off"
Cons: "charge for checked baggage"

Pros: "Love the look of the Halifax Airport after its renovations , brighter than it used to be, Check-in and boarding went very quickly The plane took on extra fuel just n case we had a layover in Toronto because of poor weather but that didn't happen"
Cons: "The possibility of a layover in Toronto because of poor weather lol"

Pros: "Good service...plane clean....attendants very attentive to all passengers!"

Pros: "cabin crew was friendly enough"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour on the tarmac because an engine wouldn't start!"

Pros: "Great crew, fast boarding, nearly empty plane so I had the whole three seat row to myself."
Cons: "The hydraulic pump for the inboard flaps sounded like it was on it's last legs and howled whenever adjustments were made. The cabin pressurization system whistled so loud that I had to put ear buds in to protect my hearing (just on takeoff/landing). Proper maintenance is important!"

Pros: "Comfortable seat with plenty of hip & leg room."
Cons: "Charged $35. for luggage because I didn't know I could go online with the Flair Air website & pay prior to check in. They were friendly and advised me to do this in the future."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash like website and they did not charge $10 for printing off my boarding pass, as no one could with website down. Also, some budget airlines now only allow 40lbs in checked baggage, Looks like they allow 50lbs."
Cons: "Similar problem on the way home, could not book luggage online but could check in. Shop closes at 5 CST so could not call. Even though we told at checkout that it was because of the Christmas volume online, still had to pay Airport (extra) price to check-in baggage. They said I could perhaps get the penalty fee returned if I called in. Told her it's not worth 2 hours on a paid long distance call to get $20 back."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash like website and they did not charge $10 for printing off my boarding pass, as no one could with website down. Also, some budget airlines now only allow 40lbs in checked baggage, Looks like they allow 50lbs."

They said I could perhaps get the penalty fee returned if I called in. Told her it's not worth 2 hours on a paid long distance call to get $20 back."

Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "I was told by transat to down load an App. to watch entertainment only to be told by Flair Air that they did not provide the service and that I was given the wrong information. So no TV for 5 hrs."

Cons: "New leaf discontinued their Sunday Halifax to Hamilton flight which was to be my return flight home. They did offer me a full refund if I needed to cancel or to rebook on a different flight but I couldn't make the new dates work so I took the full refund. I booked the flights in December for a flight in Feb and they cancelled half way through January so there wasn't a lot of notice given"

Pros: "Everything about Newleaf was awesome."
