  • Your nonstop flight from Ottawa to New York will land at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) if you’re flying with Delta, or at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) if you’re flying with United Airlines or Air Canada.
  • LaGuardia Airport has a bad reputation for delayed flights but is 30min from the city centre with good public transportation connections. Newark Airport is quieter and handles fewer flights than the other major airports in New York but knowing how long it will take you to reach the city centre is always dependent on how bad traffic is at Lincoln Tunnel.
  • In Newark, the AirTrain is the simplest way to travel between terminals, and from the airport to the city centre. From LaGuardia, it’s best to take a taxi or a rideshare like an Uber.
  • When booking your flight from Ottawa to New York, after you’ve chosen your favourite airport check your arrival terminal. At LaGuardia, you'll most likely land at Terminal C. At Newark Airport, you will arrive at Terminal C if flying with United Airlines and at Terminal A if flying with Air Canada.

I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."

They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Westjet's employees were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Delta told us we were flying out on a Delta flight, and gave us a Delta flight number. In reality it had placed us on a Westjet flight without telling us, and we had no idea we were to check in with a different airline. And because Delta unilaterally changed our flight time without telling Westjet, we were unable to check in online and were later told that we were booked on the wrong flight by Delta. Delta's communications with us and with Westjet were deplorable."

Pros: "Amy was outstanding, she provided excellent service."
Cons: "I wasn’t notified that the basic fare didn’t include carry-on baggage. It was disappointing having to pay for checked baggage without notification."
Pros: "I felt like I was taken advantage of by porter airlines"
Cons: "They didn’t tell me I had to pay 110$ to bring on carry on luggage! Unacceptable. I will never fly porter again."
Pros: "The cookies"
Cons: "They bumped our flight for no reason and we sat for 3 extra hours in Toronto as several flights to our destination passed"
Cons: "Perfect for what I needed."
Cons: "Our checked in bags did not come out on the carousel, instead they had been sitting on the ground beside another carousel - with no notification. There was a handful of us waiting 30+ mins for our bags and no one around to assist."
Pros: "The airport security was very fast"
Cons: "Have sprite on board"
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Pros: "I needed to use wheelchair service and was greeted by name as I boarded the plane. The flight attendant Barry then came and told me if there was anything he could do for me during the flight just to let him know. After the flight was over Barry asked me to wait till everyone deplaned so He could make sure my wheelchair was there and then carried my bag to them. Porter airlines is top notch. I will use them again next time I go to visit my daughter."
Cons: "Original flight cancelled. Missed connection in Toronto. Rebooked flight was delayed departing Ottawa. Layover of 2 hours in Toronto. Flight to Windsor delayed as arrival from Montreal was late. 7:30 pm departure now delayed to 8:15 pm departure. I could have drived Ottawa to Windsor in same amount of time. Total waste of money! Still waiting at lounge in Billy Bishop Airport as I write this. And the weather was perfect today! What’s going on?"

Pros: "The crew was very courteous! No one bumped my arms!"
Cons: "They didn’t let us know why our flight was one hour late,"
Pros: "My flight was delayed due to bad weather but they offered complimentary drink service at the airport and I really appreciated it. I would like to fly with Porter Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and the terminal in Toronto was nice. The food and drink service was more than I expected, and the checkin agents and terminal staff before security were helpful."
Cons: "My flight arriving into Toronto was cancelled and then my rebooked flight was delayed. While checkin staff were polite, gate staff were not overly helpful and no food vouchers were offered for rebooked passengers. On my return from YTZ to EWR, I received 6 delays to my flight but staff in the airport provided no information regarding the cause of the delay and did not provide updates on the flight in a timely manner. By the time my flight was delayed a 5th time, I was stuck in the terminal. Free drinks and snacks were available, but I had to pay for a sandwich during my 3 hour wait. I have received only a C$100 travel voucher. Needless to say I won't be using it."
Pros: "I live the employee that took me to the lounge. I thought the lounge was great. The flight was fine."
Cons: "No one met me at the gate in Toronto. All the passenger for IAD were hearted down a hall to a lounge. One that we could not enter. We were all told to stand against a wall. A fellow passenger noticed me struggling with my bag and offered to help. After a long delay which wasn’t explained, someone came with a wheel chair to take me to my flight."
Pros: "Convienent to downtown."
Cons: "Check in process was awful. They were short staffed and their self check in terminals offer no functionality."
Pros: "In combination of the friendly Porter crew and the best value for the money, Porter really is the best way to get from one major, fast-paced city to another fast-paced metropolitan area!"
Pros: "The service was incredible and efficient. Couldn’t ask for a better flight"
Pros: "Simple, easy, fast."
Cons: "Small waiting area."
Pros: "Entertainment is realism N/A. Overall good value. Too bad about Newark and not NY"

Pros: "On time. Provided snacks and drinks even on a short flight. Group lobby prior to boarding provided coffee, tea, snacks, water for free."
Pros: "The lounge. The shortbreads."
Cons: "The wait for departure. The arrival gate in halifax is a long walk to bags and rentall cars. 81 yr mom wirh me."
Pros: "Porter is by far the best airline. The staff is great, they're always accommodating and the airport is so convenient. they're delayed frequently but I continue to seek out porter above all airlines first."
Cons: "Often delayed, I fly porter a lot and they're rarely on time."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Carry on luggage is handled by crew staff - makes boarding much easier as passengers aren't struggling to find space for the carry on bags. The bags are ready for pickup upon exiting the aircraft. Would highly recommend Porter and would use again."
Cons: "Flight was approx. 10 minutes late, but the time was made up during the flight."
Pros: "The service both on board and in the airport was wonderful. This helped make my trip that much more enjoyable, and can't imagine picking another airline to Canada - I will always pick Porter Airlines!"
Pros: "the lounge was great in toronto. loved the free lattes."
Cons: "plane was delayed."
Cons: "Horrible!"
Cons: "the flight was delayed many times with no real explanation. i tried calling customer service to get on an earlier flight, wait time was 75 minutes, and i found out that the earlier flights had been over sold so there were no openings... and they cancelled other flights later in the day which is why the earlier flights were overbooked. Also, the flight attendants seem to be militant about everything during take off and landing (this is not a good thing). If a customer wants to land with headphones in, i do not see a problem. this seems to be a change from every other porter flight ive been on."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was very poor I will never be flying .Porter Airlines again My flight was cancel I sat at the airport for 8 hours before I could get on a flight. Mind you this was after being rebooked for the next day with no notification. The security agents are the one who inform me of the cancellation. NOT PORTER ."
Cons: "3 different delays. Sat on runway for over 3 hours in Toronto and then Newark. The one bathroom on the plane was full and started to overflow so we were sitting on runway for an hour and a half with no bathroom and could not get off."
Cons: "3 different delays. Sat on runway for over 3 hours in Toronto and then Newark. The one bathroom on the plane was full and started to overflow so we were sitting on runway for an hour and a half with no bathroom and could not get off."
Pros: "They didn't know when the flight will take off and when I went to ask she ask me to set down until she find out after an hour delay I had to pay double for the service care for this hour because I wasn't able to notify them of the delay"
Cons: "Are flight was delayed 1 hr. Due to a issue at Newark, this would of been ok, except the gate manager announced it was due to low cloud ceiling and visiability. I'd think you would understand any one look to see the status of flights in Newark on their phone and see visibility was a few broken and visibility 10. So lying only puts distrust in paasangeners!"
Pros: "My layover in Toronto was less than 15 minutes because there was a delay in landing due to a minor reason. However, as soon as I arrived Washington, my baggage was the first thing I saw at the baggage claim- inspire of the very short time to transfer the luggage."
Cons: "The toilet"
Pros: "Lounge in Toronto had comfortable seating and complimentary coffee was served in actual cups and saucers, very nice!"
Pros: "Great private airline which offer ultimate comfort in their lounges and plane. You can really unwind before boarding."
Pros: "The flight was very quick. I appreciated that the flight didn't take off until a lot of us were on the plane because the outside traffic delayed a lot of us from gettin there on time."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was rude. He was very demanding, wanted things done at his pace. And his sarcastic tone when asking passengers to do things like move their bags, or take out headphones to listen to the safety procedures; etc. were very unnappreciated. I've also never been tapped on the shoulder by a flight attendant and asked to take my headphones out to hear safety procedures."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "As I was waiting at my gate for my flight, I notice that It's almost time to board the plane & there is no plane at my gate. I walk over the the lady's at the stand and ask if I'm at the right gate and this is when I'm told that my flight had been CANCELLED and no one thought to inform me. One of the ladies goes "You should have received an email" but I know that I'm not the only who was unaware of the flight cancellation as I found out later that 3 other people had been going through the same thing. On top of the terrible communication, once I finally got booked on the next flight out, I was sat beside the most obnoxiously loud & irritating person I have ever met. He was swearing and raising his voice the whole flight and the flight attendants completely ignored it. There was a small girl in front of me with her father and he tried to confront this man and tell him to lower his voice & still, the crew payed no mind. Also, I am an 18 year old girl flying by myself for the first time... This man kept poking me in the arm and leg trying to get my attention and was trying to get all this personal information out of me. This is harassment and if I had flown with a bigger airline, this dude would have been off the plane before it even took off. I was petrified the whole flight as he kept telling people that if the plane didn't take off in 30 seconds, it was going to CRASH. I had one of the worst anxiety attacks of my life & the whole situation was ignored by the crew. I WILL NEVER FLY WITH PORTER AGAIN."
Cons: "Though they have a lounge it was not in good shape. Trash cans overflowing, seat cushions filthy. I appreciate that they provide food for economy passengers in the lounge but, if you provide good in plastic containers you need someone to empty the trash-at the least."
Pros: "One of the most pleasant flights I ever had!"
Pros: "Comfortable experience. Porter Airport offered great city views of Toronto."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit chaotic"

Cons: "Overstuffed storage bins. Absolutely chaotic and abysmal boarding process"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Handled the delay professionally with full transparency."
Pros: "the crew was great"
Cons: "reason for delays could have been communicated earlier"
Pros: "Crew and staff at gate fantastic. Accommodated me sitting with partner on both legs (booked flights separately)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."
Pros: "Very kind. Gave my daughter an extra snack because we had not had a solid meal in a while."
Cons: "Boarding process is never good. Obviously need to board the plane from the back to the front in reverse numerical order."
Pros: "flight was fine and on time, this leg of my trip was easy"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly on this short flight"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew should serve passengers better and nicer."
Cons: "No more delay."
Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All westjet workers are amazing. Starting from the people at the front desk, the crews on the plan and the people that give direction."
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Cons: "The flight was full and my carry-on had to be checked due to other passengers bringing oversized carry-on. The beverage service did not occur until 10 minutes before landing. Options were limited to water only. The flight was extremely rough and the pilot slammed the plane on landing."
Cons: "Delays left us in the plane for almost 1 1/2 hours before leaving Toronto."
Cons: "The delays, better coffee brand"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Sitting at departure gate waiting for two passengers to get kicked off, hard landing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The waiting area, lateness of the plane"
Pros: "There was adequate leg room on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn’t print my boarding pass ahead of time as the West Jet Website was down."
Pros: "It was smooth right from booking online uptil reaching destination"
Cons: "As it was an early morning flight I would suggest a better snack something like sandwich keeping in mind if giving option for veggie"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy. Boarded among the first passengers in the last zone group to board the aircraft. All overhead bin space already gone. Sat with my knees up around my chin for whole flight. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was in row 2 and they did not have the food item I wanted. Seriously?"
Pros: "West Jet never disappoints..."
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Pros: "WestJet staff is always friendly and I like the comedy slant they use on the announcements"
Pros: "WestJet was great. I had assistance this flight and they took great care of me"
Cons: "Totally full flight so squished in my seat"
Cons: "We were told not to take the late flight to TO as Westjet would not hold the connecting flight (TO to Gatwick) for us. This meant our TUI connection in Gatwick to Chambery would have been wasted along with bus transfers. West jet did not offer us AC flights that were available to keep us near to our schedule. We ended up cancelling the Westjet flights and buying AC flights to Heathrow at a cost of $3300 + $300 taxi to gatwick + abandoned bus to Gatwick Westjet did offer us a flight on Sunday ! In the end, we are not sure if booking thru Kayak was part of the problem as Wesjet staff said ..... Oh you booked thru a 3rd party Comments ?"
Cons: "The entire flight's baggage never were received. The stewardess even promised that all bags would be received within 20 min. We waited 1 hour until we went to go talk to someone to inquire about the delay. They opened up a baggage claim, but the claim status only ever says open or closed, which says nothing about the status of the bag."
Pros: "Price!"
Cons: "But who knew, that I was going to go to Toronto! I now understand your schemes. You gave a cheap deal, but did not tell me why. Never again Kayak."
Cons: "2 hour delay, small plane, rude crew"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. We missed our connecting flight so we are in a hotel in Toronto now at 1:30 am. And our flight out is at 5:50 am and we will need to get up by 4 to get to the airport by 4:50. Getting our hotel and food vouchers was long and painful and disorganized. Would not fly with them again"
Pros: "Pretty quick boarding, although the boarding time was incorrectly mentioned to be too early."
Cons: "Had to de-ice so we left about 10 minutes later than expected, but somehow still arrived early… but our gate had another plane still using it. We ended up arriving at our gate 25 minutes late. That's unacceptable, especially on a flight that's just an hour long. The gate was so far from the public transportation (landed at Terminal 3, public transport is at Terminal 1) that I missed the bus - got home super late as a result."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Gate change"
Pros: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Food v"
Pros: "Over all the flights were great. On time, smooth and friendly staff."
Pros: "Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it."
Cons: "No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me."
Pros: "The granola as the in flight snack."
Cons: "There was not enough options if you wanted more water, or juice. There was not even a soda option available."
Pros: "Complimentary wine - friendly staff"
Cons: "Late departure- disorganized boarding"
Pros: "Flight was for the most part on time"
Cons: "Flight attendant was mean and nasty. She asked me to take my headphones off, to which I complied but shook my head as I took them off. The flight attendant then started shouting at me as to why I shook my head and she got loud and confrontational for no apparent reason. I just looked at her in disbelief without saying a word. I don’t think I will travel WestJet ever again."
Pros: "Personable and professional staff. Great service"
Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."
Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."
Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Pros: "the diverse amount of films"
Cons: "the food could have been better."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "That we had to pay for checked bagage on the return flight (Copenhagen to Newark) was an unpleasant and expensive surprise. In the 25+ years I have flown trans Atlantic with SAS, this is the first time that I’ve had to pay for luggage. No pre-warning .... :-(."
Cons: "When we checked in for the return flight in CPH we learned that our return ticket was “light” ie it did not include luggage. we were not informed about this, we did not request a ‘light” return ticket, and...why would we when we checked luggage flying over? We’d like the usd100 refunded"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seat was better then usual."
Cons: "Don’t make us pay for our drinks."
Pros: "The food was amazing"
Cons: "The seats could have more space"
Cons: "Don't remember this flight"
Pros: "Great food, excellent crew, pillow, blanket, water bottle... what more could i ask for?"
Cons: "Mildly annoying advertisements for the in- flight shopping during the movies and overhead"
Pros: "Love the service on Alaska. Crew were incredibly nice!"
Pros: "Guess what, we took off and arrived on time!"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, cleanliness of cabin, actual cod fish (not tilapia/suay) etc. For dinner. Good Swedish scotch too"
Cons: "the staff constantly refused to help when they could and provided wrong information that caused me to miss my flight. i will never book through kayak because of this experience."
Pros: "Business class lounge excellent. People who helped with the wheelchair were excellent."
Cons: "In a wheelchair. Check in was terrible and rude. The fact that SAS did not allow us to bring my electric chair directly to the gate was absurd (only airline in the world that did that). The fact that it was not at the gate when we arrived in Newark surprised even the SAS Gate agents. Had to go to baggage and collect it in oversize baggage. Will not fly SAS again until that policy has changed."
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "Flight was on time with friendly crew"
Cons: "Backup plane from the 90s had broken entertainment system"
Pros: "Good movies and food good. Seats wide enough and mostly enough bathrooms."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was wonderful except baggage claim, in BOTH directions."
Cons: "It could have been the perfect trip, but I am not sure why SAS baggage handling is so mediocre. In both the flights from EWR to OSLO and back, every aspect of the trip was super, except for the wait for baggage. In Oslo, I estimate having waited at least a half an hour at the carousel before the bags started showing up, and the same in Newark. We had long cleared Immigration, which normally is not a speedy process, and yet still had to wait at least 20 minutes for the FIRST bag to appear on the carousel. Most annoying, particularly after a relatively long flight, and especially for transfer passengers who needed to recheck their bags to continue to other destinations."
Pros: "On time, movies, service staff"
Pros: "Staff efficient."
Cons: "Leg room is tight. No free alcohol. Dinner was very good. Lunch snack was tasteless."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable for economy. Crew was pleasant, attentive and efficient. Good seatback entertainment system."
Cons: "Once passengers do final passport check and enter secure gate area on this flight to the US, there’s no bathroom available. On the transatlantic flight, no complimentary glass of wine as on other airlines."
Cons: "The crew passed by me TWICE while serving food and I was not sleeping at that time. I had to go and ask for food myself. Also there was a delay about 40 minutes when taking off in CPH (CPH-EWR) because of a fuel-screen malfunction or smth. The pilot was very nice and kept us informed all the time. I still didn't make my connection flight due to the delay and SAS rebooked me which made my already long trip 8 hrs longer."
Pros: "Food was good and so was the entertainment on board"
Cons: "Issues with boarding due to problems with brakes so flight was delayed by 3 hours. No food or drinks were offered"
Cons: "Horrible. They claim "free wifi" but it didn't work. 8.5 hour flight without wifi is ridiculous."
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Smooth flight, good food and friendly crew."
Pros: "Seat was much more comfortable than the first flight, flight attendants were more polite, food was ok, entertainment was adequate, overall not bad."
Cons: "No major complaints on this flight."
Cons: "Didn't make connectingflight due to a bomb alert at airport. sAS didntgive any support with either food or hotel. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "Free water bottles, headphones, blankets and pillows for all passengers. Two meals (one full, one small). TVs in chairs. Flight felt roomy. A relatively pleasant experience."
Cons: "No free booze!"
Pros: "They were very accommodating to alternate diets. All staff were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Comfy seats. Good good service. Great video options."
Cons: "SAS staff seems sort of cold and cranky."
Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "No entertainment. They didn't notify us that there was no wifi until 5 minutes before we boarded. Being older than the electronic age, I did not have movies or games on my phone. Had we had earlier notice, I would have had time to hit the book store. Since the flight was delayed an hour, they had plenty of time to notify us earlier than just before boarding. An 8.5 hour flight without entertainment made the experience unpleasant."
Pros: "Flights on time"
Cons: "The flight to Sweden was very very bumpy. Lots of turbulence very scary"
Pros: "Good legroom good food in early"
Cons: "Waiting area at gate to small not jalf as much seating as needed"
Pros: "Real meals"
Pros: "Super"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed well over an hour. I was unable to check in the night before. I was finally able to check in online the afternoon of the flight, but no seats were left, so had a boarding pass with no seat assignment. Got to the gate and they sent me and about 25 other folks with no seat assignment to wait for a "colleague" who finally appeared after almost everyone else had boarded. I did get a seat, but I was one of the last to board. They ran out of salmon dinners, so the stewardess plopped a chicken dish in front of me--didn't eat since I am vegetarian. The stewardess did give me a free mini bottle of wine, which is normally free on Lufthansa. I am just not all that impressed with SAS. I will try to avoid them in the future."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and well maintained. The food was very good. The crew was professional and friendly. Based on my experience this is a top-notch airline."
Pros: "SAS is the best airlines !!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "A bottle of water along with the standard pillow and blanket at each seat. Never had a long line for the bathroom (dumb luck?)"
Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Cons: "I didn't.t like your movies selection? Not very current. the food was awful. Not being able to book a seat until I arrived from Amsterdam."
Pros: "as advertised - premium economy"
Cons: "no complaint or concern"
Pros: "The entertainment system is top notch. And the food was actually good. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't use the WiFi without paying extra, even on an international flight. The seats are among the most uncomfortable I have ever flown in. There is so little room that it is virtually impossible to sleep, even on an 8-hour flight. The purser's English was atrocious, nearly incomprehensible, and he didn't seem to care whether anyone understood him or not."
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "Food good; nice drinks selection; no food available on demand"
Cons: "Inattentive service; few entertainment options"
Cons: "Wasn't assigned a seat and had to stand in a long line to wait to confirm that I had a seat for a flight I booked over 3 months earlier."
Pros: "Everything was great, food, blanket & pillow, movies, friendly service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for landing. Had a 2 hour drive home from the airport, hard to stay awake. So tired for work the next morning."
Pros: "Crew was super sweet!"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Connecting flight from Hamburg was late so gate personnel graciously gave me an upgrade."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "I had the same seat as I originally chose, but my husband's seat was changed without any consent and he had to change from the isle seat to the middle seat. Due to this, he could not sleep at all in 8-hour flight. I bought the ticket well in advance and chose the seats, and that was all in vain. I have no idea why it happened, and we are very disappointed."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "Great ground and air crew"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Cons: "Lack of communication. Crew was unattentitive and seemed to not know protocol or appear to have things under the control."
Pros: "Where do i start? It’s a short flight to be sure but air canada planes never feel like many Other airlines’ mini planes or puddle jumpers. they seem new, spacious, seat back Entertainemnt, just great. Also, there is no scrimping on Service. How many Delta or united or American flights have i taken on this route only to be told “coffee or water” and sometimes no coffee “the flight is too short”. Nonsense! Granted I was in business, but I had a full hot breakfast served and a full array of beverages offered. It AC can do it, everyone can. The flight attendant was lovely."
Cons: "The flight was too short :)"
Pros: "squeeze me into an earlier flight"
Cons: "Everything good."
Cons: "I was disappointed that for the first time since I have been flying, they did not allow my carry-on with me. It was not that bad though because by the time I got through customs and made it to the baggage carousel the bag was waiting for me."
Pros: "This time I didn't have to pick up my luggage in Toronto, it was lucky!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The condescending flight attendant at the gate who wouldn't assign me a seat and gave me guilt for not paying for extra leg room or preferred seating when Air Canadas site wasn't working"
Pros: "Service was on time & staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight back, we had to wait on the airplane for a good hour before we could disembark. But that was due to heavy traffic at the airport and not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "The flight was no cancel because the weather"
Cons: "Waiting too much after landing in LGA"
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Cons: "Delay was not explained, gate change was not communicated. Poor communication overall."
Pros: "TV entertainment even for a short flight"
Pros: "I've flown air Canada probably 6 times. I've been delays 3 times"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not so bad..."
Cons: "- Delayed from take off for over two hours. During this time, pilot and flight attendants shared minimal information with passengers. - At one point, I asked a flight attendant for water because I had a migraine and wanted to take some Advil. He told me he couldn't right now because the pilot wanted everyone in their seats, but he would get it for me as soon as possible. When I followed up 45 minutes later, the same flight attendant apologized and said that it was because he didn't want everyone asking for waters. We were stuck on that plane for over two hours, and you can't get people water? - Gate check was not available, meaning that I had to check my carry-on when there was no more space available (my bag met the carry-on size requirements)."
Pros: "Air Canada was kind enough to give us a hotel voucher."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and we weren't informed until we arrived at the airport. An email was supposedly sent, but I didn't receive it. We had to fly out the next morning and missed half a day of work. Fortunately, we didn't have anything important scheduled."
Pros: "No issues with the plane or service itself but we were stuck waiting for a replacement plan for a late night flight and departed 4 hours after schedule."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and welcoming. The aircraft was very visibly clean, and my seat was comfortable. Most importantly the flight was on time and the boarding process was properly supervised."
Cons: "I'm 65 years of age and have been travelling by air since I was 5. (You know back when airplanes had piston engines and propellers). So the tings I don't like are what you might expect. I don't like that I have to pay extra for a seat with adequate legroom. I don't like being charged for the most basic of Wi-Fi connections. (Delta's and Amtrak's are free). Although this was a very short flight, the passengers could have been offered the option of either cookies or pretzels, instead of everyone being stuck with pretzels."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "The credit was not polite and quite unfriendly."
Pros: "Nice interior. Free movies."
Cons: "Air Canada is always delayed."
Cons: "Mad dash thru Monteal airport to make connection after 30 minute delay. Rep just before customs had a bad scanner and couldn't scan my boarding pass on my phone. Sent me back to find an Air Canada rep in customer service. That rep's scanner worked, and then they had a five minute discussion about it. Had to go back thru passenger scanning. Flight's gate was changed. Finally got to gate, flight was delayed, no updated information. Another 30 minute wait on the tarmac. Flight attendant in business class didn't do a cabin check before take off, man next to me continued phone convo during taxi-to-take-off whilst two gentlemen in front of me had their seats back for take-off. Bad service."
Pros: "Flight was on time.service good ."
Cons: "Flight attended was not great .Too much walking in the terminal."
Pros: "The crew were effective and efficient. We boarded promptly and departed on time. They were polite and friendly."
Pros: "On flight the flight and service was great. They need to work on the onboard section a lot."
Cons: "It was delayed for 2 hours not only they were late they didn't know the gate, I had to stop by the customer service they told me a wrong gate twice they didn't even announce. The most lower customer care I ever experience."
Pros: "Spacious, leg room"
Cons: "Temperature, cold. Needs interior upgrade."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "It was a short flight and I shared my seating with average weight people. The crew members and the pilots were very informative."
Cons: "During a short flight there is not much to experimented and less to comment."
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: "On time and short! Everything was good"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "The staff was so kind and outgoing! They made sure the flight went smoothly!"
Pros: "They took off and landed on time"
Cons: "extreme delays and not a lot of updates"
Pros: "Great short flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "No problem"
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "We set on the runway for over 4 hours."
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems and then agent got me in a other flight to Newark which was the last one to NY and then there was a delay of at least 1hr to take off. Most likely, I will not travel with air canada again and I'm not recommending to friends since they are always delay with their flights."
Cons: "The service"
Pros: "Leaving and never coming back!"
Cons: "Psychotic and delusional crew that take bad customer service to a whole new level!"
Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"
Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."
Pros: "ok"
Cons: "Workers never helped to get us on our flight even though the delay was caused by Air Canada's technology errors. Had to pay $200 for a rebooking fee , rather than accommodating us for Air Canada's error. Highly disappointed after hearing such great things about this airline."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
