Cons: "Late boarding"

Pros: "The crew and comfort."
Cons: "The food does not taste good at all."

Cons: "All of our luggage was lost and did not arrive in Prague"

Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "Yes,very helpful"

Pros: "Organized, clean"
Cons: "Kinder crew, better headphones"

Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket because they said I was not on my earlier flight two weeks prior. This was absolutely not true. I had taken the flight and also checked bags. For an airline to cancel someones tickets and not notify them is highly unethical."

Cons: "Highly recommended for efficiency"

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: "Standard German efficiency. Neither good nor bad."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "breakfast food"

Pros: "coffee"
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"

Pros: "Good, friendly crew"

Pros: "The airline crew was responsive and professional. The flight was also very smooth."
Cons: "The boarding process was like a buffet: first come first served."

Pros: "Plenty of room in both the cabin and the bathroom- more than we have ever experienced. Food was very good. Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic for economy, with everyone mobbing around the entrance. Having people board in subsets, beyond just 1st class and people needing assistance would be helpful. It makes the entire airport gate areas hard to maneuver around for other people as each plane loads, and it stresses out the group waiting to get on the plane."

Cons: "More movie choices and more music choices"

Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"

Pros: "The crew again was great. The cheese sandwich was also excellent. I wasn't expecting a sandwich on a 2 hour flight and this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, but that was a product of having to bus everyone out to the plane for boarding. They also crammed way too many people onto the bus. Would have been more efficient to load quickly and go as another bus was already waiting."

Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"

Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."

Pros: "The service was excellent along with the flight being very comfortable."
Cons: "A little more options in entertainment in the hindi language would be much better for people who do not like to watch English entertainment. Along with that free wifi would be kind of good to have for people who need to work on the flight or check out important emails."

Cons: "They made me sit next to a special needs person and did not warn me. I didn’t signup to keep helping the elderly."

Pros: "Over crowded"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Frankfurt Airport is awful! Finding how to go thru immigration and being sent to three different places. Trying to figure out how to get to baggage claim. And the. Sorting out trains into the city. Worse than Charles de Gaul and I thought that was the real rock bottom."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was clean, food was good, entertainment worked (except WiFi, but I didn't need it anyways)"
Cons: "One crew member oversaw me several times when distributing beverages because the gentlemen next to me ordered two, and she assumed he's ordering for me (which he didn't). She explained herself, but didn't apologize but made it sound like it was my fault. When I ordered 2 beverages (wine and water), she said she doesn't have time to hand out two beverages to each passenger."

Pros: "Good attitude"

Pros: "Brand New plane. Great German entertainment. Crew were very efficient but didn't show up with drinks as often as in the past but still more often than other airlines. Overall a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Took two hours to start dinner service without a reason. Turbulences and a passenger with long legs were impeading my sleep but not Lufthansa's fault."

Pros: "No delay and the landing is smooth"

Pros: "The best in-flight service I have ever had on the Lufthansa flight from Denver to Munic!"

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."

Cons: "Flight was late leaving Munich and it caused me to miss my connection. And just my luck my rebooking was 2.5 hours delayed."

Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by the leg room for economy class--albeit I'm of small stature"
Cons: "Being on-board at the gate for an hour, due to a technical issue not meeting flight captain expectation"

Cons: "The vegan meal. No airline appears to know how to make a healthy and tasty meal."

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: "LOVE the premium economy class - i have long legs & was traveling with two kids - we were all very comfortable!!!"
Cons: "would like to see a movie category called : academy award winners"

Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly and efficient."

Pros: "Entertainment and food were good."

Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"

Pros: "The first leg of our flight came in late, but the staff at the airport already had someone waiting for us by the gate to escort us to the connecting flight. And the staff was extremely organized and transported our luggage so that it made it to the final destination with us. All this happened in under 30 minutes. Great service"

Pros: "Crew was very good. Pilots, definitely, were high level professionals."
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled - I found it at DME.. An email, which Lufthansa Moscow promised to send me, had never come. My carry on, while weighted 7 kg, and was, I believe of standard size was not approved. Again, there was an unnecessary on my mind, second TSA-like check at FRA. Lufthansa could just bring me by bus to the departure gates. I believe that police officers with openly carried machine guns INSIDE of TSA secured zone at FRA is too much (though I am not a law enforcement person)."

Cons: "I AM A HANDICAPPED CUSTOMER. MY FIRST FLIGHT FROM BOLOGNA TO FRANKFORT WAS FINE. NO PROBLEMS. WHEN WE LANDED IN FRANKFORT THEY WOULD NOT LET ME OFF THE PLANE SINCE THERE WAS AN ERROR HAVING A WHEELCHAIR AND A LIFT TO MEET THE PLANE. I SAT ON THE PLANE FOR 45 MINUTES BEFORE THE ISSUE WAS RESOLVED. I GOT TO THE TERMINAL AND WE WATCHED AS THE PILOT CLOSED THE DOORS OF OUR CONNECTING FLIGHT 35 MINUTES PRIOR TO TAKE OFF. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE MISSED THAT FLIGHT. WE WERE BOOKED ON A LATER FLIGHT WITH UNITED. THIS CREATED MORE PROBLEMS THAN I HAVE SPACE TO WRITE. I AM 70 YEARS OLD AND HANDICAPPED. YOUR INCOMPETENCE CAUSED MY WIFE AND I NUMEROUS PROBLEMS I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. I KNOW THIS WILL FALL ON DEAF EARS. I WOULD APPRECIATE A RESPONSE."

Cons: "We were delayed by complicated connection from Vienna train station to Vienna airport, by the time we arrived, we missed our flight. We called your customer service, and a recording stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We contacted website customer service and it stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We needed immediate assistance from a HUMAN BEING to change our reservation, that was impossible. We were forced to purchase new tickets, the cost was $2,500, we had to stay overnight in a nearby hotel, the cost was $220. We are returning one day later than planned all because we could not reach you."

Pros: "The new plane entertainment features and the bigger toilet room space... but... seat space SUCKS... I'd rather have a more comfy seat than bigger toilet room space"
Cons: "The person behind me kept pushing my seat back.. guy next to me kept elbowing me. Seat space is way to small, need more room to move. I'm only 130 lbs. can hardly wonder how a bigger person can handle those tiny seat spaces. Also, those seats are so uncomfortable with the way they contour one's back. No support and very very uncomfortable, I had mid back tension pains the entire 12 hour flight."

Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Seats had extra legroom which was very nice."
Cons: "Screens were on by default and hard to figure out how to turn off. Ads are very annoying."

Cons: "Costumer service was really BAD crew was really bad I asked one of stuff that get some drink she said ok but when she was saying ok I got that she was not going to bring it anyways couple of time I try to even eye contact and with voice I said excuse me but she didn't care She was keep passing my seat I was really upset and thirsty"

Pros: "Like the idea of getting on & having access to decent films from when you get of to when you get off. Cheaper than other flights - by approx. $ 300 - short booking due to funeral."
Cons: "Plane delayed 2hrs, then changed gate & delay reduced to 1hr. Bit of a rough landing. Auto darkening windows - nice idea unless you have the window seat and the sun still coming in when flying above the clouds"

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some problems and seats seemed a bit uncomfortable"

Cons: "Staff Curtsy and overall gestures!!"

Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."

Pros: "More space in business class (777-300) than many other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment very limited. No adjustable air vents in this aircraft"

Pros: "Amasing crew"

Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."

Cons: "Boarding clusterf..."

Pros: "crew great comfortable"

Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"

Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"

Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours with no explanation"
Cons: "Asked for wheel chair assistance and was not met in Paris. Had difficulty and barely made my flight. A gentleman who worked at airport assisted me"

Cons: "make passengers from Nigeria to feel respected and important. Imagine no entertainment in the aircraft in addition to a very poor food."

Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"

Pros: "Most of the crew tired especially hard to keep everyone comfortable and safe. The food was absolutely amazing."
Cons: "Other members of the crew were snarky to passengers and dismissive of questions from passengers during the early stages of the delay. We were all trapped on board for about 4 or so hours without much communication from the crew or captain which made me very anxious. We arrived 5 hrs late and it put my whole trip in jeopardy. Based on this experience, I eont be inclined to use this airline again for future trip planning. This airline will need to work hard to earn my trust back because i felt physically and emotionally unsafe throughout the experience, many times."

Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"

Pros: "Good selection of movies"

Cons: "Old plane."

Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"

Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."

Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"

Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"

Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."

Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."

Pros: "The space and the people"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My seat was changed without my permission. Very unprofessional staff at Mumbai airport"

Cons: "no vegeterian sandwiches very disappointed"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "very old planes we waited 1 hour to drop our bags as their belt had an issue we had to pay extra 70 pounds to reserve a baby cot on the plane"

Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Cons: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."

Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"

Pros: "All of the crew were friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."

Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."

Pros: "Flight arrived safely."
Cons: "Air France offered no help rebooking missed connection at JFK due to delay of more than 2 hours in arrival."

Cons: "Too crowded"

Pros: "tool me safe from one airport to another"
Cons: "wait time, food"

Pros: "I like service of AF"

Pros: "Spacing was ok"
Cons: "Scents. Perfumes. Products that have scents that irritate airways. Not good for asthma and allergies."

Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."

Pros: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room, we were able to have a window seat which was great for my sister since before we didn't have the window seat option. The snack was good also."
Cons: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room."

Pros: "This plane was the nicest plane I had ever been on. Very comfortable and the entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Airplane food is airplane food I guess."

Pros: "Warm and elegant service"

Pros: "Air France seems to have improved since the last time I flew."
Cons: "At able to select seats prior to check in."

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: "Entertainment system was good and seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing because there were few or no announcements of which zone was boarding, and it wasn't clear exactly which desk to proceed to for boarding"

Cons: "Dirty plane, garbage stuffed in seat pocket. Tray table disgusting!"

Pros: "Nice flight"

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: "Exiting the plane and terminating my transaction."
Cons: "Delayed. Missed layover. Lost luggage. Poor communication. Agents had attitudes."

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."

Pros: "Air Canada couldn’t have been better, I missed a flight they waived their fees and got me on the next direct flight home. Wonderful service !!"

Cons: "Delayed"

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

Pros: "Airline provided a flight to Toronto, with reasonable amenities and boarding process."
Cons: "Had to load my own suitcase on the luggage belt - I am elderly, with back issues, traveling alone. Attendant was courteous and helped me, but stated that staff "doesn't do it any more" because of safety issues. No help will be given in the future. Plane left two hours late - I missed my connection. Was given a stipend for an overnight stay, but no explanation was given about the delay. Staff couldn't tell me if my checked baggage was on the plane the next morning. I probably won't fly Air Canada again."

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"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours but no one was in much of a rush to get it going"

Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"

Cons: "Too hot and cramped"

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."

Pros: "When our flight was delayed 7 hours due to a maintenance issue, air canada did find another plane"
Cons: "The plane was dirty, smelly, 7 hours late. We sat in the Tarmac for 4 hours with one bag of pretzels and a small water. Completely unacceptable. Never again."

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: "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."

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"

Cons: "This site allowed me to book a CANCELED flight. I found out 20 hours before my scheduled flight that I was on an 11:20pm flight not a 7pm flight."

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."
