Cons: "Needs to be more clear that you have to pay to bring bag on."
Pros: "Wine and food on flight, nice crew"
Cons: "The people at the ytz airport missed our boarding call and then had to tell us in person to board and our flight was late."
Cons: "The crew could have checked us in...we were 5 minutes late for checkin and had to book and pay for another flight."
Pros: "Great folks by the check in that helped me with emptying my water bottle getting my checked bag through and through security , y’all guy with light blonde hair in a man bun was exceptional in helping me make my flight"
Cons: "After boarding had to deplane and go on another aircraft."
Pros: "Very convenient, non stops and airport is close to downtown"
Cons: "Captain said the 1 hour delay was due to bad weather in Washington DC but there was no bad weather in DC. He should have said the truth. I was in flight 729 from Toronto to Washington Dulles airport on 7/7."
Cons: "Like mentioned previously, long delays, followed by a snafu in the boarding process forcing a manual check in of all passengers. net outcome: 1.5h delay. First experience counts, in my case it was a mediocre one."
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "2 short hauls. Somewhat turbulent. No one can fix that,crept the Big Guy"
Cons: "Buyer beware! When you buy this basic package, they charge $37 for your first bag and another $50 for your carry-on. I just paid $97 for one piece of luggage and a carry-on! This practically doubles the cost of the ticket. Not only false advertising, but highway robbery!"
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "New no carry on bags rule was not clear at purchase. Was very frustrating."
Cons: "Was.not pleased I had to pay $44 to check my carry on!"
Cons: "1 hour delay due to weather"
Pros: "Nice quick flight - very comfortable."
Pros: "Clearing security was a breeze, the lounge is convenient, boarding easy and the plane was orders of magnitude more comfortable than what Air Transat offers."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for a while waiting to take off."
Cons: "Poor customer service."
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "Hot plane"
Cons: "After paying for bag check & being at the airport 3 hours early, the aIn-line was over weight so they removed my bag to the next flight, rather than the gate checked bags! They promised me the bags would be delivered right away, then after I checked, lied to me that they had been picked up by the delivery service."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "I appreciated how the staff took me in a wheet-chair all the way to the customs and waited with me while they checked me out. they were courteous, kind and genuine.Very refreshing in this day and age. God Bless all the staff at Porter Air Lines. thank you so very very much, Barbara Ann MacMahon-Firestone, Toronto,Ontario."
Cons: "3 houra delays and no storm!"
Pros: "Easy. Relaxed. Cheap. Great!"
Cons: "That the plane left late in Dulles and because they wanted to take the passengers who had a connection to Montreal, they left late in Toronto, but I was satisfied with the service, the crew, and everything else."
Cons: "it was the last connecting flight and it was cancelled."
Pros: "Small lines, great lounge with light breakfast and refreshments for all passengers, very pleasant atmosphere. Quick boarding and almost instantaneous takeoff... nice on board service, with a variety of free snacks and drinks (including alcohol...)"
Pros: "Read similar comment left for windsor to toronto flight."
Pros: "- Staff/crew are exceedingly pleasant, although not necessarily 100% helpful - Free beer and great snack options onboard are a nice departure (see what I did there??) from the usual in-flight experience. - When they significantly messed up my entire first day of travel, without complaint they sent me a voucher for future travel."
Cons: "- My first flight was delayed and I wasn't notified until an hour beforehand (even though the flight was delayed due to an incoming flight they knew well ahead of an hour beforehand would not be there). I could have arrived at the airport later and paid less for my parking. - I was told by a gate agent I would still make my very tight connection (spoiler alert - I did not), so I did not ask to be rebooked on a later connection immediately. - Once it became clear I would likely miss my connection due to being delayed after boarding, I asked again about it, this time of a flight attendant. I was told there were 23 daily flights a day to my connecting city (there are not) and it would be fine. We sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes after landing waiting for a gate and the last hope of making that connection was gone. - Upon arrival in Toronto it turns out my connecting flight was cancelled and everyone had to be rebooked. The very pleasant customer service rep told me not to worry! They automatically rebook everyone and I've been scheduled to leave 10 flights later - the following morning. At 12:45 p.m. their best solution was a flight at 8:30 the next morning (later canceled). When I calmly explained that was not ideal, I was immediately given the "last seat out today" on a 9:30 flight (later delayed then canceled). I'm not sure who they were saving that for, but it is unacceptable to rebook people for the next day when they have free seats. I was resigned to spending 9 hours in the terminal (literally just a room with a few snacks) because I was also on standby for every flight until then, and fortunately after checking in again 5 hours later, I was handed a ticket for the flight leaving in 15 minutes. If I had followed Porter's original plan, I have no idea when I would have made it, as I already mentioned both of those other flights were later canceled and I've already gone over how Porter rebooks passengers. - I found out after I spent $20 Canadian on a sandwich and chips via the Porter website that they are supposed to give meal vouchers in a significant delay, but I was not offered one. - On the way back, I saw myself being set up for the same rigmarole. My first flight was delayed more than a half hour, leaving me with a very tight connection. Thankfully, I arrived at the airport earlier and was able to catch an earlier flight because as it turns out, the connecting flight I would have missed due to the delay ended up being canceled. I can only imagine what the rebooking process would have been, so I am glad Porter is accommodating about switching flights. I imagine they do so to save them the rebooking later, but still, it is not something all airlines will do. - Both flights out to Montreal were incredibly hot. I tend to run cold and I was sweating. The flights home on a warmer day were fine, so I'm not sure what was going on there."
Cons: "Flight left without us despite being a connecting flight and the customer service rep was rude and useless. Future flights were cancelled or severely delayed. Had to cancel that flight and use Air Canada to get to Montreal"
Pros: "Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Delayed at the beginning with no explanation."
Pros: "The seat has enough leg room. The service was very nice on the plane with nice selections of snacks and soft drinks. It also offers wines and beers free of charge. The waiting area which offers complementary snacks and beverages is more comfortable than the one in the US with very comfortable chairs and outlets with USB to charge your phones, computers...It would be great if the US airlines copy their ideas."
Pros: "Complimentary refreshments. Not too much...just enough. Thank you, Porter!"
Cons: "My first time using Porter...certainly not my last."
Pros: "Free beer wine and other soft drinks. Flight crew spoke both French and English which was very helpful."
Pros: "The cordiallity and the service"
Cons: "See prior comment. Also, we were told that as 8 of us were making same connection that we'd make our connection. My wife was standing at the gate after running and they would not board her."
Pros: "Didn't like it I don't"
Cons: "Waiting seven hours after being bumped because my flight was oversold. Watched a flight to Montreak leave every hour sibce I have been here. Finding out my name is not on the voucher list and gaving to fight for it to be checked out. Paying $9 for a glass of mediocre wine. All this for a flight that will probably be canceled, if my past exoerience with Porter is any indication. I missed my grandmother's fuberal this past summer because of Porter. I am DONE!!!"
Pros: "Travel was seamless Flights were surprisingly punctual Staff was friendly and planes are comfy for short flights - Lounge is the best ! definitely the highlight of flying porter. They stand behind their slogan... " Flying Refined ""
Cons: "Flight delayed. Seems to happen often with Porter...for some reason."
Pros: "Being treated like a guest instead of cattle felt like the old days of flying. From the extra leg room to snack and complimentary wine and beer, it was such a refreshing change . Not to mention the staff of Porter Airlines, every person we spoke with was pleasant and extremely helpful. We will definitely fly Porter more often!!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing to complain about."
Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality experienced. It stood out to me and I fly 3x/ month. In addition, I liked the lounge area was comfortable."

Cons: "When we were about to take off we pulled to the side and sat there for 20 - 30 min before they told us there was an issue with the plane. Then we had to wait another 20 min before we got back to the terminal."
Pros: "Free wine I guess. They called security when they cancelled the flight. They knew everyone would be frustrated and annoyed. No refunds. No money for hotel. Terrible experience."
Cons: "You cancelled the flight saying it's because of weather but Air Canada was flying the same time with no problems. You should've let us know the last flight to montreal was cancelled long time ago."
Cons: "Because of work had to change dates was told no changes no refunds. I spend at least 15000 a year on flights mostly west jet. Will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Quiet flight. Great landing. Excellent staff on board"
Pros: "The stewardess accidentally spilled a little water on me but she was so nice about it and apologetic that she paid for my drink. Good people skills in bad situations make a huge difference."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."
Cons: "Communication from you all. I missed my flight because of the terrible instructions and communication"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. My mother needed a wheelchair on and off each time. And the staff was there to help her . That was a blessing"
Cons: "Not much. I know seating is limited on space, so that’s the only thing . Wish there was more space."
Cons: "After landing, we were waiting on the tarmac for sometime and I needed to use the restroom I was an allowed to do so. It would’ve taken me a short short time. I went to The rear of the plane to use the restroom and was told to get in my seat."

Pros: "Very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "My inflight entertainment system didn’t work."
Pros: "The crew was fine and we were very comfortable. This is because we were in Premium seats. The experience is entirely different in economy, which we did while flying the other direction."
Cons: "The Westjet employees working on the ground as we disembarked in Calgary we’re not good. It took forever to get out stroller off the plane, and one employee was being really rude to all the people waiting for their strollers."

Cons: "Rush through US customs going down do to late flight held plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour which isnt horrible but then had to sit on the plane an additional hour waiting for take off. I barely made my connecting flight in Calgary.

Cons: "One flight attendant came through the cabin at the beginning of the flight with the offer to purchase food and that was that. Six and a half hours we got pretzels or cookies."
Cons: "Checking in at Airport very slow, I had a terrible experience even thought I spoke to them several times at checking counter. And missed my ride home as a consecuencia of arriving late."

Cons: "The delay of the return flight was a bit of an inconvenience, however the flight crew was very professional about it."

Pros: "Easy access to website. Flight was great and crew was very accommodating, friendly and hospitable."
Cons: "I had to try several times to pick the flight I wanted since the site seemed to refer me back to a flight I did not want. I ended up having to cancel the wrong flight on the carrier’s website after booking two incorrect flights. Everything went very well after that."
Cons: "Not any bodys fault the crew were trying to be supportive. multiple babys all around the area beside accros and a few rows down. maybe set them all to teh back would be better"

Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "Friendliest crew, good entertainment system. Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Desperately need a lounge facility in terminal 5 Chicago"
Cons: "Too small of a plane. Using twin props instead of jets.. Depends on the time of departure. You pay for preferred seating and get jammed into this de Havaland jumper plane. Noisy and then the gate is at the end of the old part of the Calgary airport. Having to board and get off the plane in rainy weather. How bush for both airports. Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"

Pros: "Comfortable seats; attentive crew."
Cons: "Cabin temperature; too cold."
Pros: "The crew on the actual flight was excellent."
Cons: "The staff at the Toronto airport was rude The baggage policy was unclear and they had trouble answering our questions. We could have saved a good amount of money if the baggage policy was more clear and the staff could explain it. Using the term "Economy" for all flight categories is not helpful."
Pros: "We were upgraded to premium economy for free at check-in. The crew was very kind"
Cons: "We did not enjoy the entertaining system as the headphones were not complementary. The food was quite okay but quantity was sparce and no cheese provided. Also service was slow. Drinks were served 10 minutes after meal ☹️"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Travelled from Toronto,CA to Lyon, FR and wasn't pleased with service, food, no coffee available plus drinks were limited.

Cons: "Stroller was not at the gate. We had a connecting flight. Had to go out and check in again to collect the stroller."
Cons: "Had to pay 100$ for an extra bag because I was 4kg over weight then also had to transfer my bags myself during my layover. There was no entertainment on a long haul flight from London to Toronto. And zero space on the lonhaul flight. The least space on a plane I’ve ever had and I fly almost every week. I will never fly air transat again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "The pilot was honest and concerned with the safety of the aircraft. That was most appreciated."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. There was no liquor or even a small snack provided. Minimum service by the flight crew. Most disappointed!"
Cons: "Seats are smaller than other airlines, terrible experience. I felt I was being squeezed the whole time"
Cons: "2 hour delay with very little communication as to why. Plane was way too big for a short domestic flight (boarding and departure took longer than the flight itself). Parked at far end of the airport so 15+ mins walk to arrivals. All around one of the worst flight experiences I’ve had in years!"
Pros: "The flight was brief."
Cons: "Cramped, very poor landing, insufficient information as to how to get to the flight with my luggage. I couldn’t find my luggage at the other end."

Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "Flights were grounded due to high winds, then AT had problems replacing crews coming to the end of their max duty hours. Flight scheduled to depart 6pm. Flights were grounded until 7pm. It took AT another 4hrs to find new pilots and board. We could have driven to Montreal faster!"
Pros: "The crew were professional and helpful. Most impressive! It was clear that they genuinely cared about the comfort of the passengers."
Pros: "Personnel serviable et professionnel"
Cons: "One jour late on schedule"
Pros: "Loved the updates on my flight"

Pros: "Airline staff were very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable for a transatlantic trip- difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The Air Transat crew and ground staff at the airports were friendly, considerate, helpful, smiling and excellent representatives of Air Transat. I am a large man, nearly 2 meters tall, with a history of two separate incidents of Deep Vein Thrombosis resulting in Pulmonary Embolisms (documented in a letter from my physician). My medical condition can be exacerbated by reduced circulation due to prolonged periods seated in a confined space, and in a worse case scenario, this can be life threatening. The ground staff and flight attendants listened to this concern, and found seating situations that allowed more leg room in the emergency exit aisle on the flight over from Montreal to Marseille. On the way back, the flight attendants gave that emergency row to other passengers (allowing me to have the three seats behind the emergency row seats, albeit with les leg room, but room to spread out and move my legs). Very kind! and attentive! Food was good, and the offers of food and drink were frequently made."
Cons: "Like all planes, I find the seating is too tight for anyone over average size. That said, I think Air Transat's seating is a bit more generous that other airlines."
Pros: "IT went up and down at the proper time."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. My feeling is they were designed to be in the reclining as the headrest can not be reached comfortably in the upright position."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 12 hours. They didn't offer hotel rooms so we had to sleep on the floor of the airport (hundreds of passengers, including elderly and children). No communication. One person managing multiple delays, so rarely anyone at the desk to answer questions. Appalling."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient as Option Plus board right after first class. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating: the worst I have experienced. Terrible in-flight entertainment system; poor video quality; everybody views the same movie as it was in the 80s unless you think to bring your own tablet. Barely passable food (warm sandwich) and breakfast consisted of a slice of cake."
Pros: "The Check in staff was very helpful, professional and friendly. Cabin crew very friendly. Food is good."
Cons: "No entertainment. The tv was not seen properly from my seat. I had 7 hrs with no entertainment. One of the toilets was not working. The other needed the door to be repaired."
Pros: "Good service!"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude (young brunette Quebecoise). She really needs a lesson in customer service when she represents a company as reputable as Air Transit."
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Pros: "the aircraft was much more comfortable than my seat with WOW air. and the monitor with the entertainment was actually working (was not on WOW air) and I had ear phones which worked with it so I actually could watch it. They gave us free water twice while we were delayed. WOW air charged for their bottle of water!"
Cons: "Most passengers could not take advantage of the entertainment on board. The steward/stewardesses did not come around and offer ear phones even at a price. I pressed a call button to get some water for to take a pill... three times and no one came. I would have gone back to where they were seated and asked personally but the seat belt sign was on... I did not sense there was any tumbulence but who knows. I flew from Paris to Montreal with an hour and a half layover in Montreal so I can connect to a flight to Toronto. Not the airlines fault ... our flight from Lyon was delayed.. but they (WHO the Canadian government) insisted my baggage had to be collected from the Lyon flgiht by myself and re-checked in for the Toronto flight, and thus I had to race across the huge airport to do that. Then I had to go through customs and then security (line ups of about two hundred people and waits of about 20 minutes) . Then I was supposed to catch my connecting flgiht at Gate A67 ... that is the 67th gate of 68 gates at this terminal. By the time I got out of the security line i was hearing the ominous " final boarding call for Air Transat Flight 276 to Toronto"!!!! I am 62 year old semi-fit woman with two bags running the posted "8 minute walk: to that 67th Gate. I made it with three winded young people who similarly were begging the Air Transat staff not to take off without the others of us who were still in the security line but booked on that flght. They waited. Then we could not get clearnance to land in Toronto... and so... we were delayed going to Toronto to... and $30 in parking later... my son got me home. Surely the Montreal Airport needs and "express line" through customs and security for people needing to catch connecting flghts or any flght about to take off! Also the Airport should be providing a trolly or something for passengers who have to board planes in those gates so very far from the security entrance to A gate!!! i am happy to walk it when I was not time pressured but in situations like this one... running could cause someone in poorer health a heart attack."
Pros: "Business class seat"
Cons: "2hour delay!"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Below average company"
Cons: "I was stuck in another city because a connecting flight was canceled so I never got on my flight to Rome. I didn't get a refund or credit or anything for my flight."
Pros: "The overall experience was so bad, that it is hard to think of anything positive.....oh, one thing. The beer they originally served me was room temperature and the kind stewardess went out of her way to get me a cold one."
Cons: "First off there was a 3 hour delay in the terminal at YYZ. Once on board, we sat at the gate for another hour (4 hour delay in total). Finally worst of all, since they are a "discount" airline, they fit in 9 seats per row as opposed to the usual 8 in an airbus 330, and I am sure more rows as well. (3x3x3 vs 2x4x2) I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and I had an aisle seat! The guy next to me was an elderly, portly Portuguese man, and because the seats are so narrow, he was spilling over into my seat (no fault of his own). Neither of us could nap And the fare was not particularly cheap at $580 one way. It was truly horrible. I arrived exhausted and am still recovering from jet lag"
Cons: "Wish we knew to download the app before the flight to benefit from streaming movies"
Pros: "Super new and clean planes. Crew extremely nice and the best entertainment package included!"
Pros: "Great hostesses very friendly"
Cons: "Very poor meals and entertainment"
Cons: "1 hour delay while sitting inside the plane. No snack nothing to eat"
They cancelled my flight and had nothing else available at the time I needed to fly, so I had to book with another airline that was $200 more for the
Airplane arrived late at the gate. Staff was not prepared to board a passenger with disabilities. Boarding was long. Crew member treated without respect a passenger that was worried about missing a connection. It took longer than expected ro get a gate at the airport.
Flight delayed by four hours
Small seats means other passengers thoughtlessly take up your space. At least it’s a short flight.
We had to run to catch our flight. An announcement should have been made that they would wait for us. When we were departing our flight from Hfx. There was commotion became the flight attendants asked for passengers to wait that weren’t connecting to another flight,a passenger yelled out for everyone to SIT DOWN that weren’t connecting. I feel that the air craft should be exited the same way as is boarded,by zones.Also,if people are connecting then those passengers should be exited first,an announcement to suggest that people wait DOES NOT WORK. So much for social distancing!
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Cons: "We parked at the furthest possible gate in international. Ridiculous walk!!"
Pros: "I learned not to fly with air Canada again"
Cons: "Stop lying to passengers Give little care to travelers with infants Telling us that there are so many infants traveling and no bassinet seats are available then find out that air Canada had sold themSellig for $100... Is a decisive act and careless"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 75 mins. We were at Newark longer than we were on the flight."
Pros: "No food , no entertainment options ."
Cons: "Have the option to purchase food on a 5 hour flight ."
Cons: "I used Kayak to find my ticket and fill out my information (all kayak logos on top of the page and so on). However, when my confirmation email and e-ticket came in, they were issued by Budgetair.com. I had no experience with them and took it to be a reliable website since they were working with Kayak. However, I had to change/cancel my flight because of delayed passport delivery, and this is when everything turned very Ugly! I had to spend an hour over the phone to get connected to an agent with BudgetAir, who disconnected the line within 2 minutes saying: “please hold so I can pull up your information”. This game went on for 6 hours. I tried to connect with the airline directly to make the change, which was not possible since Budgetair had placed a restriction on this ticket. After 6-7 hours, which meant no work for me or lunch because I was sitting behind my desk with a phone on my hand, I got through an agent who was rude and impolite. He took 15 minutes to find flights for the new dates (I did it in 2 minutes on their website), and then told me to pay $315 in extra fess. When I inquired that the prices on your website for the exact same ticket is way cheaper than my original ticket price, he got angry and aggressive. Basically implying that I have no choice to take their offer as is, or let go of my original ticket price of over $2000. Long story short, DO NOT buy from BudgetAir if you like having a peace of mind!"
Pros: "Seats and plane condition"
Pros: "The flight was running late due to technical difficulties but they did take good care of us. Even the rescheduling of the connecting flight was easy."
Pros: "Most of the flight there was strong odor of suer smell"
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Cons: "Again, very rude staff, not helpful at all."
Pros: "Cancelled my original flight plus 2 hour delay. Crew not exactly nice either."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew."
Cons: "Awful headphones"
Pros: "There was no entertainment !"
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude no food or drinks No entertainment of any sort for long trips"
Pros: "Clean plane. On time departure and arrival. Transport service as expected. This is the INTL review."
Cons: "Even coach class international flights typically have full food and beverage service, as well as in flight entertainment. There was ZERO in flight entertainment. And the beverage service consisted of coffee, tea and water. That's it. It would be useful to provide more details at time of booking."
Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT DIDN'T HOLD MY CONNECTION - MISSED BY JUST 15 MIN SEATS NOT COMFORTABLE - PREMIUM ECONOMY NOT WORTH THE EXTRA COST"
Pros: "Friendly folks"
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then cancelled, and there wasn't even bad weather at either airport. I still don't know why the flight was cancelled. My alternate flight had to be from a different airport and that flight was also delayed. I went from a non-stop flight to a flight with a layover... a 7 hour layover. Was not fun sleeping at the airport. On top of that, I had paid to select my seat and it wasn't honored on the flight back. Somehow I was unassigned because of the flight change during departure but I was still charged."
Pros: "I hated both my trips with Air Canada. I payed extra for a better seat and the one I got was dirty. The tv was NOT working. On top of the 5 hours delay, I hated all the experience. The attendants messages is never clear and focus. It's like Air Canada is employing teenagers with NO work etics or professionalism. I am a frequent flyer and will NEVER flew with Air Canada again. The cheap ticket is not worth the cheap aircraft and cheap service I received."
Cons: "dirt and stuff on floor between floor and wall, bad, never seen that before in a nearly new plane"
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Pros: "Managed to be on a big plane with leg room. So paid cheap and didn't have to compromise on anything."
Pros: "Easy flight good crew"
Cons: "Lost our baggage"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly...quick and easy flight"
Pros: "I had an exit row seat so the extra room was much appreciated."
Cons: "Aircanada's method of multi zone boarding is a mess. Everyone queues up and blocks whatever zones actually can get on. The seat next to the exit door was freezing. The food was horrible. I understand airplane food is bad but this is some of the worst I have had. Our flight our was fine. There was no inflight entertainment for an 8+ hour flight - you had to rent iPads which is crazy these days. We were late to takeoff due to airport traffic which isn't the airlines fault but then because the customs baggage scanning system went down at Montreal my husband missed his connection - was eventually put on my flight after two trips to ticketing and three calls to aircanada but his bag never arrived in Chicago. We are still waiting for it."
Pros: "Food is okay. No delay on time flight I enjoyed it"
Cons: "So far nothing flight attendants are very nice"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "NO LEG ROOM!!!"
Cons: "it was a horrible experience and i will never fly with air canada again. best of luck"
Pros: "The food on Air Canada is horrendous. Bring your own food! The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The Montreal airport is a zoo. I hoped it would be better than other places because it's smaller, but it wasn't. And I didn't fill out the correct customs form. The crew said that we should request a form from the USA if we were Americans, so I did. I have filled out that form many times, so I felt fine--until I got into the Customs area of the airport and learned that I needed to fill out a Canadian form too. So I had to do that before picking up my luggage. You would think that an Air Canada crew would know which forms I had to fill out and give them to me or at least ask questions so that I could be prepared when I went into the incredibly complicated maze to go through customs."
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Cons: "crew seemed very busy and did not care of passenger request, I had asked mote than 5 times for a cup of water for my 7 years old daughter and nobody came back with it. I had to be more directive to get it finally."
Pros: "The way back there was nobody beside us. Nice to have extra room."
Cons: "On the way back there was only one person in business class. Nobody got bumped up"
Pros: "Crew were very nice and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so badly that I missed my connection to Paris and arrived a day late, which was NOT nice."
Pros: "The staff was generally helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "The airport kiosks were down save one. This created unnecessarily longer wait times for everyone,me specially those that were only looking to get a printed Boarding Pass."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food is awful and the seats are the most uncomfortable I have ever encountered!"
Pros: "Good onboard entertainment"
Cons: "Overhead cabin extremely small compare to US planes"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was not as good as american carriers and there were no movies. Also, no one told us that we would have to retrieve our bags and put them on belt so we had to go through line twice"
Pros: "You had the latest HBO shows"
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude in at check in to get onboard as I was one of the last passengers to board the plane."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Cons: "Staff needed assistance in folding stroller - whereas this has never been a concern on porter. - stroller was thrown on the floor at landing and retrieval."
Pros: "Plane are amazing! Enough room for each person and service was amazing, both at the checkin gate and on the plane."
Pros: "Had the good fortune of an under-booked flight, allowing more space to spread out."
Cons: "Flight departed about 75 minutes behind schedule, but if that was necessary to ensure a safe flight, I'm fine with the delay. We still make our connection, thanks to prompt assistance at the airport."
