Pros: "Very helpful and experienced crew, really good service! Thank you!"
Pros: "crew attentive the plane is very clean"
Pros: "The crew was professional. The process of sharing information about gate changes was very well organized."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable. Seat pockets were torn and poorly designed. Electrical connections were not working. Choice of entertainment is limited. Food choice ran out before service came to the end of the plane."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Nothing really of note. The plane was pretty basic and unexxceptional, but that was expected for the price."
Cons: "Boarding from Nairobi was ridiculous. The plan was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very comfortable. All very nice."
Pros: "The Crew was very good. I was with my 84 year old father.And they handled his needs very well ."
Cons: "The food of course was sort of mediocre at breakfast. The eggs tasted like they were man made.oh well maybe that’s really typical. Otherwise all was fine."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was diverse."
Cons: "Seats in economy were too cramped."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Pros: "Great Experience."
Cons: "Great Experience"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ac leaking water on my head. The seat not working properly, I had push it upright with my own hands to get it to be upright."
Pros: "I liked the crew and how friendly they were. Pilots were great too. Wished they would have taken the same consideration ind DFW. The lady at the counter sent me to the wrong gate and left me there for over one hour then told me oops I forgot to tell you the gate changed. You need to hurry your flight leaves out of terminal E17 I was in c37"
Cons: "When the employee made me miss my flight (accidentally). Also on our flight I couldn’t watch a movie because the electronics did not work."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The raisin muffin was very old"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane"
Cons: "Flight was 40min late, which can happen. Caused me to miss my connecting flight and all three employees from Lufthansa I dealt with had a total ‘I really don’t care attitude ‘"
Pros: "Crews are very friendly & nice service. Good and comfortable seat."
Cons: "It was freezing cold inside all the way to Atlanta."
Pros: "Efficiently loaded, competent crew."
Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."
Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Pros: "Everything. The flight was great and the staff were awesome. Thanks Lufthansa."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Cons: "There is too little leg room; knees hitting seat in front of me."
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
Pros: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."
Cons: "While missing a connection happens sometimes, Lufthansa was particularly dreadful in handling the situation. Hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of travelers were not informed about what was happening with their connections, or given any guidance. This all arose from around an inch of snow in Frankfurt. It caused bedlam at the Frankfurt airport, which the Lufthansa staff appeared utterly unprepared to deal with. This is our second very bad experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Food use to be better"
Cons: "Check-in process. Baggage fees."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Sitting in the exit row meant that we could not rest bags under our seat but no overhead was left for a single backpack between my partner and I (our only luggage for the flight). Additionally other passengers were rude regarding overhead and the crew was not communicative on who should put what sort of baggage in the overhead."
Cons: "Ease and concenience"
Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"
Pros: "No delay and the landing is smooth"
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful, even once we had a long delay"
Cons: "The cabin was very tight and the seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "every thing was good, so comfortable for a long flight"
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean. The service was great. Food was OK. I enjoyed the wine service. Lots of movie choices. HOW does one get "bumped up" to Premium Economy?"
Cons: "The seats in Economy were the most uncomfortable I have ever sat in for such a long time nine and a half hours. All six of us found them to be uncomfortable. No seat bottom cushioning. I had a back pain. Boarding started with the First Class and Business Class first. It took an additional 20 minutes for Economy class to start boarding. The line was very, very long and interfered with other travelers in the airport terminal. "boarding area to Frankfurt was cramped" When we arrived in Denver, only five Custom Agents were on duty to process our arrival passports, although there are 14 control stations at Denver. It appeared as though the Custom Agents were not aware of the arrival of the Lufthansa 747 nor the one that followed. All other Custom in Europe were much more efficient and move people through quickly. What a bad first impress made by the USA Customs people."
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"
Cons: "late 3 hr"
Pros: "Great crew and excellent service"
Cons: "No free Wi-Fi even on international flights."
Pros: "Lufthansa - The best."
Pros: "Initially things were smooth. Boarding was on time."
Cons: "But then they deboarded the plane and everything went south fast. They didn't tell us what was happening or where to go or what to do. Instead we were directed to different service centers. We were told conflicting things. Sometimes they told us to exit the airport through passport control, but without any information on what to do next. They reopened the terminal but then redirected us to a service center. That center was overloaded and we ended up waiting in line for service/information for the entire day. Once I was near the service center they dissipated the line. They told us there was another service center in a different part of the airport and that this one we have waited for was closing. We went there and it was also closed instead they had beds without blankets or pillows limit the halls. Alia we were in line for hours before they offered any water or food. Food was really late. Information was the problem here. We were not told what we should do except to check with the service center. Eventually a few of us tried to get through passport control and check the service center out front. This worked much better. I was able to get a hotel and a standby ticket. That flight went much better but getting that far was a mess."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time, fast boarding"
Cons: "Food. Couple of screens not working."
Cons: "I am writing to you because of the poor service that I experienced with your Operations Manager in Vienna, Paola Contestabile. I travel internationally four to five times a year for the past decade and I have never had such awful service as for my Lufthansa Flight 2329 on Jun 14th under confirmation #62RZK3. I was on my return flight to the US with the exact same carry on baggage that I had left the US with a week earlier- a roller carry on and a backpack for my laptop. This is my standard everywhere in the world that I travel and have never had an issue. I bought a painting on my trip and checked it in. With regards to my carry on, Ms. Contestabile was insistent that I could only have one piece for carry on. I told her to get the baggage rules and I would read them to her. I am a trained lawyer and value the meaning of words and rules. I explained that I am allowed one carry on and a personal item. She argued that my backback is not a personal item and that only a "laptop" is a personal item. I again explained that my personal item was my laptop bag, the same way a purse is a personal item for a lady. She finally relented and allowed me to pass through security and passport check. I assumed that this was the end of her confusion. Little did I expect that while sitting by the gate waiting to board the plane, Ms. Contestabile would emerge again and declare in front of all of the passengers that I would not be allowed to board the flight if I did not check my backpack. I told her this is unacceptable, since she had already cleared me. She said she had changed her mind. I found this response to be ridiculous. When I asked to speak with her manager, she refused to allow it, stating "I am the manager today." Ms. Contestabile even went to the pilot of the plane and convinced him that I was a "safety concern" because I wasn't following her ridiculous interpretation of the rules. This is a pure abuse of power and a threat to true safety when a ground crew member can make such a false and baseless accusation. Luckily, a woman passenger overhearing Ms. Contestabile told me that she could not believe the way she was treating me and offered to carry my bag for me. I am requesting a formal investigation into her actions and appropriate disciplinary procedures to ensure Ms. Contestabile is not allowed to threaten another passenger again."
Pros: "Please do it more easy for the costumers"
Cons: "The people who have baggage for check in can do it since the beginin the travel gol and back"
Pros: "Good take off and landing. Crew was thoughtful and polite."
Cons: "Could improve on boarding. Perhaps start with the people that have seats in the back of the plane first to make it easier to board and not block the aisles, instead of having everyone board at once. Also need more comfortable seats."
Pros: "The staff was attentive and concerned when my husband became a little dehydrated on board. They brought him fruit and water and came back to check on him."
Cons: "App is terrible. Messed up our selected seats. Airline did not offer to help change our seats or provide any other accommodation. My traveling companions are over 6 feet tall and were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "After we realized our flight was cancelled we were trying to reach Lufthansa but couldn't for a long time. It was very frustrating. There was nothing we could do on their website either. No alternative flights were offered, no additional information about how and when we can fly home. We had to stay one extra day on Salzburg since this was the only option given to us by Lufthansa when we finally spoke to them the next day. This experience with Lufthansa was absolutely disappointing and we will probably never book with them again."
Cons: "The seat was broken and did not recline. Old plane. Dirty."

LOT booked me this flight without my knowledge allowing them to avoid refunding me a flight which they themselves canceled. Low morality in this company

Pros: "The food, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was completely awful"
Pros: "Ground crew (checkin counter) was very nice."
Cons: "Better seats (business is just a middle seat unoccupied), better food. No entertainment at all, not even music."

Pros: "The airplane is 737 dream liner Bombardier and is well ventilated and operated smoothly. Looks very new. Flight staff are excellent."
Cons: "The layout of the airport is not conducive to walking around before boarding. Could not use the airport lounge as a result."
Cons: "Passenger next to me was too large and encroached on my limited space Stewards did not respond to light or request for drinks until I went to the back of plane Staff was curteous"
Pros: "Crew!"
Cons: "Small air craft"
Pros: "Nice plane. Crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding in Chicago was late and seemed confused; partly because of gat configuration. Not much choice in entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At check in the website did not allow me to purchase checked baggage. I arrived at the airport and paid 80 Euros to check in my 12kilo bag. I bought I would be proactive and pay for the baggage for my return(only 20 euros). I received only a receipt for the 20 euros, but paid 63,250 drams. Something is shady and I feel duped. The flight was over an hour late with no explanation. There was a plane at the gate when we landed, which added to the tardiness of arrival. They were so non Chalant about so many people missing their connecting flights. It was like they already knew they were going to put us on Lufthansa 2 hours later... polish airlines Is awful- the airport personnel even worse. No one respects standing in line. Airport officials kept cutting into the security lines which literally cost me the 5 minutes that I could have made the flight. I am very diasspointed and kayak should not advertise this airline."
Pros: "The plain was delayed more than three hours"
Pros: "Overall everything was good - I have travelled frequently with LOT in the past few months and this was perhaps the best experience so far. Boarding was easy enough - the flight was not fully booked so there wasn't the usual Central European pushing and anxiety during boarding. Flight crew are informative, cabin crew attentive and kind. Service and food were good."
Cons: "Comfort on these long haul flights is not expected in economy - the seat next to me was free which came in very useful as the person in front of me reclined almost immediately and kept throwing himself about in his seat in vain attempts to get comfortable - I was able to move over so I wasn't disturbed by his person. Why they have reclining seats is a mystery - it doesn't make it appreciably more comfortable for the person reclining and it reduces leg room for the person behind, makes it more difficult to watch the screen (despite the tilting feature) and means that the tray table is resting on your knees during meal times."
Pros: "Good price. The in-flight meal was hot and delicious!"
Pros: "my flight canceled from WAW to EWR"
Cons: "my flight canceled from WAW to EWR"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew very nice. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The Warsaw-Newark leg took 10 hrs and a half, as opposed to 9 and a half. The Economy seat, although a little better than on other planes, is so small, and I’m average size! The announcements are so difficult to understand."
Pros: "I can't give any review, because I cancelled my flight."
Pros: "The staff serve nice"
Cons: "Chronic failure in flight schedules"
Pros: "Very slow and long line for passport control and security check at Chopin Airport in Warsaw. Nerve wrecking last minute check in....plane delayed"
Cons: "No drinks onboard for close to 11 hour flight. Crew was very stingy with the water and non alcoholic drinks. Plane delayed , landed 45 min. after scheduled time."
Pros: "Had been provided free taxi from and to airport on departure day. Free hotel with 3 meals. But still waisted 3 days"
Cons: "All 160 passengers where rescheduled only in 3 days for a replacement flight"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "It was very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Crew atmosphere"
Cons: "I'm still on this roller coaster! Initial flight delayed 3 hrs. Missed connection in Warsaw. Got on another flight with its own connection Munich then Sofia and about to miss that connection too because this flight is also delayed for no reason. Lot app doesn't work. Customer service is horrificly slow and their phone number had me on hold for over 40 min after which dropped my call"
Pros: "Smooth plain driving"
Cons: "Diner meat to spicy, poor breakfast meal,"
Pros: "they were not very late - within one hour."
Cons: "For three of us we had only one bag to check. They charged us 70 euro for that bag. All their flights were 30-60 minute late."
Pros: "On time and a comfortable flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The initial flight was delayed and they sent an agent to escort us quickly through the airport and ensure we didn't miss the flight."
Cons: "We orderd the two tickets with 1 luggage for each person. When we got to the airport they told us that the luggage is not included and we had to pay additional 91 dollar per each luggage. They just tricked us."
Pros: "The price was fair."
Cons: "They were very fussy about the weight of my carryon"
Pros: "The food available were quite delicious."
Cons: "There was no window shades to block the sunlight."
Pros: "The economy premier seating is outstanding. Plenty of room, friendly service, actually pretty good food. Don't know how it was for the regular economy seating - it looked pretty tight."
Cons: "There are not very many bathrooms for the size of plane. It seemed there was always a line."
Cons: "had to delay the plane to board us due to the first plane being late, spent hours in the airport. After almost 40 min looking for my luggage, I found out was still in Poland"
Cons: "Air Canada needs to update it's entertainment systems. On flights to and from my destination both the audio jack and screen were broken. Also, the flight did not receive any salads, leaving this vegan with slim pickings. Get it together, Air Canada!"
Pros: "Staff are very nice"
Cons: "Delay in flight of more than 45 minutes"
Pros: "Boarding was good and fast"
Cons: "The audio jack was not good thus I had to keep it steady with my hand to be able to listen to movie"
Cons: "if the flight is on time. I was delay more than 10 hours"
Cons: "My flight was an early morning flight 8 am. I needed to get up at 5 am to get ready for this flight. AC notified me 5:05 am that my flight delayed 3 hrs to 11am. I wish they told us the night before so no need to get up that early."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Please train this guys for customer service and fix there attitude."
Pros: "Smooth as you like"
Pros: "Very organized crew for the boarding on instructing passengers with carry-ons etc for the overhead storage compartments. Flight left on time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen was malfunctioning. Very frustrating trying to watch a movie to the point I turned it off & read a book . If you are going to offer the the service make sure it works."
Pros: "The tvs were nice."
Cons: "The people in front of us reclined their seats and there was no leg room. The flight was severely delayed by an hour and a half making us miss our connection."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Not enough time to the flight from Halifax to west plam beach"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly with this flight. It boarded on time. The crew were all very friendly. I enjoyed the entertainment selections and found a tv show that I had been wanting to see. I managed to watch 2 episodes and look forward to watching more of the same show on my flight back. I ended up having the 2 seats to myself which was great. Extra legroom. I have no complaints at all."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, leg room adequate. Crew helpful."
Cons: "The young child that screamed for the first two hours of the flight. The man in the seat behind me that coughed loudly constantly for 5.5 hours. No sleep on an overnight flight. Gluten free options not available for me and my wife. We tried to book these before the flight but we're not allowed access for this. Flight entertainment system froze and had to be reset, resulting in blank screens for the first 30 minutes or so."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "When the flight was already late (it arrived late), they delayed takeoff so that many people, including me, missed their connections."
Cons: "When there is a delay, even when weather related, show some empathy and feed stranded passengers!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Almost 2 hour delay in Halifax until 1:30 am but Air Canada lounge closed at 11 anyway."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
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"
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
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: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "They didn't give out free nuts/pretzels. The entertainment system was off for half the flight even through they said it would reboot in 10 minutes. Loading the plane was the slowest I have ever seen."
Pros: "Seating in a double rather than triple layout."
Cons: "Delay of almost an hour on the runway because of a mechanical problem, after being asked to turn off cell phones and so we couldn't notify those meeting us. Our flight arrival did not appear on the board at Pearson , thus complicating our communication with those meeting us. Baggage was slow being unloaded. Will seriously consider flying to Hamilton with West Jet next time we return from Halifax."
Pros: "Reasonably spacious seating in economy. Entertainment system worked and there were adequate options. Plane was clean and all facilities adequate in number and cleanliness."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not polite or helpful, sometimes rude. Food service was minimal and passengers were left hungry and thirsty for many hours (6+)."
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: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Pros: "The food was good for plane food and there was a variety of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "We did have a 30 minute delay, not a big deal but a delay none the less. And boarding was a bit of a mess as announcements were hard to hear."
Pros: "The t flight was completely uneventful-the best kind."
Pros: "Crew was fine, should serve at least a cookie with the drink..."
Cons: "Didn,t like the service I received getting off the plane.. Cannot walk any distance..Didn,t order a wheelchair, because I didn,t know I had too. Asked for a ride on the golf carts, got told to walk around the corner, and one will pick me up!! Never saw one yet!!! Took awhile but managed to walk to the luggage, but had to sit for half hour with the pain in my legs.....No thank you Air Canada, next tine it will be different air lines....."
Cons: "Our flight from Halifax to Los Angeles via Toronto should have left at 3:15 on Sunday so that we could arrive back in Los Angeles by 10:14 pm. Instead the flight was delayed and left 200 people stranded and waiting in line for customer service. Because I did not have cell service in Canada, I was forced to wait 2 hours in line only to have the agent at the counter make me talk to an agent on the phone. Prior to that, we were shocked that one of the only two agents at the counter left the counter to talk to people in line behind us instead of servicing the customers first come first serve. When I asked him to please return to the counter to help the next person in line, he mumbled that that was not what he wished to do. Meanwhile, all flights out of Toronto were fully booked that night. The delayed flight finally left at 1:30 am. Had Air Canada notified its customers about the 10 hour delay, we could have spent that time in Halifax. Both my husband and I were very disappointed in how AC handled the whole situation. Both the counter agents and the phone agent were unhelpful in offering us options."
Pros: "when I landed"
Cons: "First off the the plane was mid takeoff and stopped which terrified the passengers and crew. Then we learned the plane had technical issues which lead to a 50 minute delay, then air canada did nothing as in terms of compensation. My audio jack for the entertainment system was broken, seat 19F on flight 617 by the way... Then I got up to use the washroom and when I came out I had to wait 30 minutes at the back of the plane standing until the servers were done serving drinks and snacks/food. Then the landing was terrifying as the plane was swooping/shaking much more than normal, even the board crew looked a bit worried. Could NOT wait to be done of the flight, one of my worst ever."
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
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: "Ok"
Cons: "Food was terrible, I got sick. It was really bad"
Pros: "Good service...plane clean....attendants very attentive to all passengers!"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
Pros: "The friendly service."
Cons: "When my baggage arrived a zippered pocket was open and a an antique compass that my father (who just passed away) left me was taken. I contacted Air Canada who said that they couldn't do anything about it, they only allow claims for lost baggage. I was heartbroken, and there is nothing Air Canada can do about securing passengers baggage from thieves. Very disappointed with the lack of support with this issue."
Cons: "We were not on this flight. We ended up being routed through Ottawa. See comment above."
Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."
Pros: "The gate crew and the ticketing crew tried hard to be helpful. The Air Canada system did not support them. At 4:50 pm, after over an hour of delay, it was announced at the gate that the flight was cancelled, that we had to pick up our luggage, and that we needed to talk with a ticket agent. At 5 pm I talked to a ticket agent who said that something was being done to accommodate us but that there was no information on the computer system. I should come back at 5:30 pm. I did and people were being told the same thing. At 6:00 pm, after having discovered that there was a WestJet plane leaving at 7 pm, I was told by the ticket agent that the system was still not showing me. I left an bought a ticket on WestJet and arrived in Toronto at 8 pm eastern. I am now looking for a refund."
