Cons: "For the second time I traveled with Air Canada there was a 4 hour delay in Toronto. I will not be traveling with Air Canada ever again"

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: "We didn't fly directly from Montreal to SFO. See above."

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

Pros: "Three meal provided. Polite crew. Good customer service. More limited weight for the carry on. Generous for the excess size or weigh the baggage."
Cons: "Not enough Asian movie since this fight is to Hong Kong. Seat and space is not big enough."

Pros: "Everything was good, that day was to much therbulans. Thank you air Canada"

Cons: "not even peanuts included on a 6h flight is remarkable"

Pros: "In flight Game of Thrones!!"
Cons: "The lines at YVR were horrendous."

Pros: "Having empty seat next to me made for comfortable trip"
Cons: "Broken headphone jack made trip feel very long and boring because couldn't watch TV."

Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"

Cons: "Flight from SFO to YYZ left late"

Cons: "Flights delayed both there and back, with no advance warning and no reason given. Online & airport signage said flight "on time" the whole time. Asked Air Canada Customer Service desk in Toronto to change signage to accurate time, they were SUPER snooty and treated me like an idiot. Signage did not change, my husband came to airport "on time" to pick me up and then had to sit there 1-1/2 hours. They are inconsiderate jerks."

Pros: "All crews were nice and friendly."
Cons: "Would have been great if I had a Entertainment (movies, TV etc) screen on my seat for my Vancouver - KIX flight."

Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."

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."

Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"

Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."

Pros: "Nothing.."
Cons: "Air cananda made me go crazy... They didn't prepared anything after I missed my flight. Because of immigration. They just said to me that was not their fault. But you know, I arrived at air port 5am. My flight time was 8am. I asked aircanada clerks to get into gate quckily. But they had me wait for a long time, and they said everybody was waiting, so that's not problem. But when I got into gate at 8:45, My plane already had gone. And I went to Air canada service center, I had argued for 5hours... because they just prepared my flight from Toronto to San Francisco. They didn't care about Connected air plane was Asiana. So I Had to call three company.. Asiana, Kayak, air canada... that was horrible time. Air canada didn't want to have responsibility about missing air plane. That's why I had to contact with Asiana...the first time Asiana didn't want to prepare air plane for free... I had to try to explain my situation and problem three times.... Finally I got a ticket for free from Asiana. I could departure at 9pm from Toronto. I stayed in Pearson air port for 15hours... because of Air canada's GOOD!! customer service v^^v..... I will never use Air canada !!"

Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."

Pros: "It was a short flight so even if it was bad I wouldn't have minded that much but the plane was clean and smelled nice. Flight was very uneventful which is good."
Cons: "I have no complaints."

Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Terrible boarding and awful transfer connection at the Toronto airport."

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"

Cons: "air canada moved the flight time up an hour earlier, so I missed the check-in cut-off. I never received an email from kayak or air canada that my itinerary had changed. On top of this, air canada wanted $150 to book me on a later flight (which, after protest, was rescinded). My guess is that air canada is vastly overbooking some flights, and this is a technique to shake some passengers loose and force them onto less-full flights. Shady."

Pros: "Really flight was very good, but seats to family member given separate seperate."

Pros: "On time and great service"
Cons: "liked everything"

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"

Pros: "It was a nice flight-- the seats were comfortable and relatively spacious. The cabin crew was very friendly and accommodating. They offered us water multiple times throughout the trip in addition to the normal drink service, which was much appreciated. Also, the AirCanda gate in Toronto was ridiculously nice-- many of the seats came with a desk, phone and laptop outlets, and an iPad!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes, the boarding process went quite slowly, and our bags were slow to arrive at baggage claim on the other end (which probably was the airport's fault rather than AirCanada's). But these were only minor inconveniences."

Pros: "They give you earbuds if you forgot yours."
Cons: "I have been on several Air Canada flights and only ONE has taken off on time. Who has an international flight and does not serve any food? Not even one peanut or pretzel!! Entertainment system has the absolute worst tv shows. Or you need the app and PURCHASE the privilege to use it. The people boarding move at a snail's pace"

Cons: "This flight reservation used another carrier. It was confusing to know which check in counter to go to. When I finally made it to UA counter there was a problem with duplicate reservation. Annoying. Flight was delayed 4 hours with minimal updates and no food voucher. Did not get my flight off to a good start."

Pros: "We found out that United had canceled the flight while in line about to undergo security screening, leading to mass confusion on the part of the screening agents on even where to send us. The next several hours were anxiety filled as we try to hop onto other flights going to our destination as we were stuck in the US area of the Vacuver airport, as we could neither leave the airport or had a way out. In the end, we had to be rerouted to a different airport and take another connection, which in standard United style was delayed by yet another 4 hours. And upon arrival, all of our bags were lost, not unsurprisingly. The worst part was that for the next 4 days, no one knew where the bags were and we were without our checked bags for 5 days until they finally arrived. As an experienced traveler, this was the worst flight I had ever taken and will never fly United or Air canada ever again."

Cons: "Movie choices are poor. Food was not good, especially breakfast egg."

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: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight delayed by three hours without any explanation from the company. They did not even respect the rescheduled time, the flight delayed once more after the first delay - again, without any explanation or excuses from the company."

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."

Cons: "Poor legroom Flight sat for 1 hour on the runway"

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."

Pros: "It was short!"
Cons: "Being in the midle seat"

Pros: "Crew were pleasant and efficient. Flight was on time or early. Landing was great - very smooth."
Cons: "Food isn't free. Entertainment required an extra device. Seats are uncomfortable, not enough room to fit a healthy person (BMI 20)"

Pros: "Seat was great. Food offerings were good."
Cons: "Charging for two bags."

Pros: "I volunteered to be bumped and was well compensated. Crew was friendly, Halifax airport staff even more so."
Cons: "No food was offered. Quality of entertainment was mediocre. Although it was asked that we put on our seat belts, it was never confirmed we were going into ordinary turbulence. You don't want to feel like it's urgent."

Pros: "Short flight! Attendants friendly on plane & quick to make you comfortable."
Cons: "Long Line up to check in. Kiosks not working. Attendant was multitasking & hopping from computer to computer. She mistagged my luggage & put another customer's tag on mine. My luggage was not sent straight to NZ as planned but ended up being left in San Fran. The only hope of identifying it was the blue ID travel tag that thankfully I put on there myself, as Air Canada's tags were all wrong & were for a male customer going to Honolulu, HI. Still waiting for my luggage to show up. No clothes, no sandals....all day... Next time I will ensure I do NOT bring any luggage items for checking in! Instead I'll stick to a carryon even if it is a 3 wk trip across the world...."

Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth. Boarding and disembarkation went smoothly. Few interruptions by the flight crew during the flight."
Cons: "Seats are crowded, not enough leg room. Food is for purchase, which is a bummer. The entertainment is inconvenient"

Pros: "Air Canada is probably the worst company I used to fly with Only thing they didn't charge extra is going to washroom, that will change, I'm pretty sure, very soon."
Cons: "The only thing I liked about flying with Air Canada is that we finally got to the destination"

Pros: "crew was good"
Cons: "takes too long to board and disembark the plane because o all the stupid carry ons"

Pros: "A 10:20 AM flight didn't left the gate at 15:30. Destroyed my day."
Cons: "The flight!!!!"
