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."

Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"

Cons: "delayes again....."

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: "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 flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."

Cons: "Audio jack for entertainment weren't working."

Cons: "Flight was delayed forced us to stay in Ottawa an extra night. Only compensation we received was a $10 meal voucher!!"

Pros: "The entertainment system was fine as far as selection goes."
Cons: "The stewardesses were slow in doling out beverages, so much so that they didn't even get half the plane. As well as I was told they don't do free snacks on the linger flights and this being a shorter flight and should have therefore given out pretzels or whatever."

Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."

Cons: "Crew were very rude"

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: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."

Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."

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."

Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."

Cons: "Delayed flight, nearly missed connection, lost luggage, inconsiderate staff"

Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."

Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."

Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"

Pros: "Leaving and never coming back!"
Cons: "Psychotic and delusional crew that take bad customer service to a whole new level!"

Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."

Pros: "Movies!! Newer plane too."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."

Pros: "Staff mice"
Cons: "Delayed , causing delays and missed apt at destination"

Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"

Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."

Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"

Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"

Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"

Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"

Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."

Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"

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: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"

Pros: "The complimentary snack"
Cons: "That my seats were not together"

Pros: "Everything was as expected"

Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"

Pros: "The crew was nice enough. Leg room was good too"
Cons: "Showed up to hear that my flight was delayed for 5 hours. I was offered a credit with my boarding pass, but couldn't use it to buy a beer (which I think I was entitled to after learning about the delay) or anything from the convenience store. So basically my scheduled arrival time of 4pm ended up being 2am. Good thing I got to use my non-refundable hotel for a whopping 3 hours... After being told that this is apparently the normal experience for Air Canada, I don't see myself booking again anytime soon."

Pros: "Everything was handled very efficiently, and although it was a commuter jet it was more comfortable than those I've flown on domestically."

Cons: "When we checked in we were told everything was on time. When we should have been boarding, we were told there was no pilot. That took just over an hour to rectify. When we finally landed at Lauderdale, we were told there was no gate - surely they would have known this when we took off from Ottawa!? We sat waiting for at least 45 minutes before having access to the gate. Beyond frustrating when we were already late and inconvienced!"

Cons: "It's my 3rd time flying with this airline, and all 3 flights were delayed without a decent reason."
