Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."
Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Flight was smooth once airborne"
Cons: "Delayed Flight Seats seemed very small for an Air Canada Plane"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Cons: "No movies to watch, they told us to download their app and we would be able to watch movies. Tried to download the app on my phone without success, then tired to download the app on my laptop, again no luck. The staff had no clue how to help me, really old plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. The dinner was similar to business class but the breakfast was just a slice of bread."
Cons: "The leg room was too small and the seat did not recline enough to have a decent sleep."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Bad food, no entertainment. Uncomfortable plane"
Pros: "Plenty of room in economy for my 6'3" frame, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Everything was great - more selection on the movies/tv would be a plus"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "This was a +10 hour trans Atlantic flight. We walked on and immediately noticed there were no TV screens. I expected that the crew would be handing out portable screens instead which would have been ok but pretty inconvenient. This was not the case. We asked the crew and were told that to have entertainment for the flight we would have to download the Air Canada flight into our OWN devices and connect to the airplane wifi. They also explained that you can't download the app while connected to the airplane wifi so anyone who wanted entertainment had to scramble to download the app while we were still on the ground and Use cellular data! at this point 300 people were either panicking because they didn't have a personal device with them, didn't have a charger for their device and so would have power issues or were forced to use up roaming data because they had non Canadian phone plans!!! At the very least staff should have told passengers about this setup while they were waiting at the gate, so that people would have time to download the app with airport wifi! add to all this the fact that the app was extremely low quality and the options for movies/show were disappointingly dated and limited. This was not officially a cheap low cost flight for my family but the service we got certainly would categorize it as such. Very disappointed."
Cons: "No room. Cramped, impossible to sleep on an overseas flight"
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Pros: "Professional and polite crew"
Cons: "Did not realize Air Canada Rouge did not have screens at every seat, made the 10 hour flight a little longer. Not a deal breaker and was overall pleased with the flight."
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "The crew, that it all"
Cons: "The plane was clearly an older plane, there was NO on board entertainment for a 12 hr flight. The food was not good and there was no free wine - which is not normal for international"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "The gate crew was instrumental in helping us board our flight when the first leg was delayed and or connection time was only 30 minutes."
Cons: "Of all the international airlines I have flown, this was by far the least well equipped for a long haul flight. There was no entertainment (we had to download an app to your personal device beforehand, which we were not informed about until already onboard). There were iPads for rent, but not nearly enough for the number of passengers requesting. The dinner was a good size, but there were no additional snacks, only small sized drinks offered, and alcohol was not complimentary, and a smaller size than what's provided while in N America for the same price. Overall, I was quite unimpressed with Air Canada, and will avoid flying with them in the future, when possible."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Pros: "Served edible food (not the best quality)"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; No source of entertainment; No functional charging ports; charges for snacks; some staff seemed rude"
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Cons: "Delayed flight, nearly missed connection, lost luggage, inconsiderate staff"
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. Crew was courteous. Streaming service was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Food was not good, and there was little food and drink service. Having to pay for an emergency exit seat."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I've never experienced an international flight with so many children who were up until all hours running up and down the aisles. 2 of the people in my group sat in front of two older children (ages 12 & 10, about) who kept kicking their seats. Eventually, they told the father, who separated the girls, but was just as antsy as his daughters. All lights were left on, making sleeping impossible. The crew took FOREVER bringing food and drinks out. The plane was so disgustingly messy - it looked like a small explosion happened on the plane. It was hot and uncomfortable. The flight experience made us nervous for what to expect in Greece when we arrived. Luckily, Greece was cleaner than the flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Food, seating and entertainment was poor overall. No tvs/ entertainment of any sort"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was typical."
Cons: "What a horrible experience. Thanks for spreading out the screaming children evenly (really nice on a long flight). No entertainment at all. Getting off the plane was a God send, till I found out my luggage was separated/lost in 2 different parts of the world , none of which was were I was, it showed up 3 days later, 1 damaged."
Cons: "It was an Air Canada Rouge flight sold as Lufthansa. Bait and switch."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Not clean aircraft. My luggage left behind in Toronto.No entertainment unless you knew by chance that you need to download an application and having your own device.."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "The 2-3-2 seat configuration is better for travelling as a duo. We were provided with blankets and pillows for the 9 HR flight. Food was quite tasty for airline meals."
Cons: "Host staff made very few trips up and down the aisles. Have not before been on an Air Canada flight where there are no seat back screens, so it was a surprise not to have any in flight entertainment."
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Cons: "On the Montreal-Athens leg the meal was free but of poor quality and quantity. Breakfast was just a piece of banana bread... No entertainment system in the aircraft. Had to rent iPad with very poor quality earphones (struggled to listen to the movies) Also some of the movies were not adjusted for the iPad which translated into using only a portion of the iPad screen."
Cons: "Their entertainment system relied on customer iPads! Software proved nearly impossible to install. Food service very slow."
Cons: "The worst flight i ever had.We payed so much money and the service in the flight was poor.No snacks, no breakfast,no moister towels to clean our selfs like other companys do.Got in Athens ok went to get our luggages no luggages to get.It took me about one hour to get everything straight.I had to leave for my island because the Taxi was waiting for me.I got my luggages after 3 days delivered in my home.I will not travel again with AIR CANADA."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not cater to the passengers. Every international flight I've been on, the crew members always ask if we want more snacks or drinks. I was never approached. Also, I asked for an extra blanket and was told no."
Cons: "No free alcohol. I know it sounds like a stupid complaint, but alcohol makes these flights way easier to handle. Also, no tv screens of any kind. You have to download the Air Canada app before hand so you can stream only their enabled content on their in flight wifi. It felt like I was flying the international version of Southwest."
Pros: "Service was fair"
Cons: "Lst 2 of 3 suitcases, no entertainment in seatback, personal device entertainment was very limited and dated, wine is not complimentary with meals on a long flight, screaming babies, overhead light would not work for the right side or middle of plane. As an Alliance member, you failed miserably. We will be seeking partial refund for you sendng one bag to Athens, one to Zurich and one to Munich."
Pros: "Nothing worth writing home about"
Cons: "Need own (Apple only) device with downloaded app to get entertainment. That's infuriating. From what l saw, many who tried to do that still didn't/couldn't get it. Tan out of devices fir rent, not that l ever wanted to rent one."
Pros: "Cheap and direct to Athens from Toronto."
Cons: "Tiniest seats ever, no plugs, no screen for a 10 hour flight, and I always get the shits after eating the food on air Canada rouge."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "Decent service."
Cons: "I paid 100$ for my seat, for more leg room. It happened that the seat next to me was unoccupied. I thought it would give me an opportunity to stretch out a bit to sleep on the Atlantic crossing. Another passenger's tv didn't work so one of the stewardess told him he could sit next to me. He got more leg room for free. I was cramped and could not sleep because of muscle spasm. The Legal age made it more comfortable but it is not worth 100$"
Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."
Cons: "Buttery pretzels in both directions that are way too buttery. Crew is never overly happy to be there."
Pros: "I was very kindly provided an upgrade and seat beside was empty, it was a great flight. thank you!"
Cons: "i was not able to travel with my spouse. the seat allocation process did not allow me to set this up prior to the flight or at the airport"
Pros: "The complimentary snack"
Cons: "That my seats were not together"
Pros: "Everything was as expected"
