Not a lot

It took two air hostesses two hours to service the entire cabin. There is a training issue. I would not fly air canada again.

Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound.

Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected.

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?

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.

Crew overworked but pleasant and doing their best. Self check in works well with assistance

Management decisions meant assigned crew arrived after our flight supposed to depart. Needed 1 more person to service passengers. We waited a long time after serving started to get served. We did not know that food could be preordered online and served soon after takeoff. No TV screens on back of chairs...had to rent device to see movies. Have app but not able to book and get points. Wrote to WJ for help but oo response

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in CAD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
