Pros: "Meal surprisingly good. Crew friendly, professional, and efficient."
Cons: "Small seats 4 abreast--too close for any comfort for transatlantic flight. Would not fly this particular airplane again if possible."
Cons: "were not served drinks"
Cons: "We paid $100 per person to choose our seats in advance and then when we boarded we had been bumped to a different location and my wife and I were sitting across the aisle from each other, unable to share a tablet to watch movies. The cabin crew was not helpful at all so we traded seats with another passenger who had also been bumped from his preferred seat. The entertainment system didn't work for an 11 hour flight.. are you kidding. We pressed the call button to see if it was just our inability to sign in but no crew member came. After 15 minutes the call light went off so we pushed it again, but the light was still on an hour later. We asked about it during the meal service and were very rudely dismissed. Long after meal service was finished we asked one more time to see if anything had changed and the crew member brought us a tablet to use that was loaded with movies. I'm not sure why they didn't do that earlier. Then 50 minutes before landing they literally pulled it out of our hands to store it away."
Pros: "There seems to have been improvements to the check in and boarding for disabled disabled passengers like myself at Pearson. Much easier to drop off luggage and move quickly to the wheelchair pickup area. Staff were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Spacing between seats continues to be a problem especially for disabled clients. Because I was travelling alone, I was asked if I would move to accommodate someone with a pet carrier that would not fit under the seat they were in. I declined but wondered how they were allowed to board with an oversized case. Also seemed strange to ask a disabled passenger to move."
Pros: "We got in on time and that matters most on an evening flight."
Cons: "The plane was freezing"
Pros: "Air Canada has one of the best buy on board menu's of any North American carrier. They even allow you to purchase Business Class meals (subject to availability of course). Flying on the older 767-300ER also has more shoulder and leg room than some of Air Canada's newer configurations for the 787 and 777."
Cons: "Air Canada's boarding process is a bit frustrating. On American Airlines and United Flight attendants make announcements over the PA to (a) step out of the aisle to let people pass, and (b) place larger suitcases in the overhead and smaller bags under the seat. That way they try to ensure there is enough bin space to accommodate everyone. Passengers on Air Canada stuff everything in to the overhead bin and nothing under their seat, leaving little for those boarding after and delaying the flight because flight attendants are looking for bin space. If they were more pro-active, it would speed things up."
Cons: "it took so long to taxi and get off the plane. it wasnt a full flight and it took 30 minutes to get off the plane after landing"
Pros: "The crew. The keg room is OK and so was the food."
Cons: "My luggage was lost for five days. The USB port on the seat back didn't work and the sound for the movies was so bad I couldn't watch anything. No boarding by zones, which we had on our outbound flight."
Pros: "Your customers are nicer than your staff."
Cons: "Firstly I will start with the lack of service we provided when trying to get seats together after checking in online. We rang and were told to try at the airport counter. Then at the airport counter we were told to try at the gate and then at the gate when I went to ask I was told to go get both tickets before they told us that there was no 2 seats together anyway rather than looking first. All whilst explaining this was our honeymoon and we would really like to sit together as husband and wife. Then once we boarded the guy sitting next to me was happy to swap seats with my wife as he had back problems and had asked for an aisle seat but was denied. Finally we are underway and I find that my entertainment touch screen doesn't work so even though it is one i can't select anything to watch. Plus to top it off the seat arm rest was broken. Obviously with a fairly full flight with no 2 seats together their wasn't much that could be done immediately but where is the maintenance and actual physical plane quality? Do your engineers or staff not check things? Overall dispite this being our national carrier I am ashamed to claim that. Many of our overseas visitors for the wedding from Australia and Europe also had similar complaints."
Pros: "No in flight entertainment system. I hate those things. They take up room and lots of times you can't even turn off the screens. Streaming to personal devices is a much better solution."
Cons: "Food for economy class 10 hour flight was: Dinner: a bowel of rice with a couple of shavings of meat, bread, and a brownie. Snack: pretlzes Breakfast: small loaf of bread with a tiny amount of meat filling. Absolutely eat before boarding this flight. All you will get are carbs. The foam on the seats was thin and not comfortable. This airline can be a bit cheaper than others but I don't think it's worth it."
Pros: "Efficient crew as with the first flight I had, consistent service."
Cons: "I don’t know if it’s the Vancouver-Mexico route or if it’s the seats but there’s just something difficult about it. First time I flew into Vancouver I was exhausted which makes sense as I had to fall out of bed at 3am, but this time I was awake and well rested and it still felt draining (which generally doesn’t happen to me with flights). Maybe it’s the leg space and the seats? Not sure. Could also be the odd time zone crossing."
Pros: "The Dreamliner was the latest version. Wonderful staff and Toronto is a great airport"
Pros: "Comfortable econom."
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Cons: "1, no food 2, pay for the luggage 3, very small leg room 4, too low temperature in the cabin and no blanket"
Cons: "I was on 4 Air Canada planes none of them were clean; the seats are not cleaned after use. The staff are pretty rude. The food was terrible."
Pros: "Comfort, decent entertainment selection, crew was pleasant and professional, boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Food = bland mystery meat entree."
Pros: "Not anyone's fault --- delayed due to Fog. Then on rout to Ottawa when they started selling food, they ran out of the main breakfast meals and or cheese plates by isle 19."
Cons: "The leg room under the seats is impeded by the seat support structure. This is not such a problem on other planes."
Pros: "The landing..."
Cons: "Left late and overall once again did not find the staff to be exceptionally helpful."
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "We were missing some of our luggage and now 7 days later are no closer to getting it than we were .We haven't gotten much help or satisfaction."
Pros: "I like that the seats have tv's and seats are comfortable There is also a great selection of things to watch Including Indy Canadian content So great! Crew was great as usual I very much prefer to fly air Canada over the American carriers"
Cons: "There was a build-up of delays for domestic flights, namely from Toronto to Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary (the ones I heard). I was on the Toronto to Calgary flight, which was supposedly delayed from 16:45 till 18:55 EST, but the actual boarding time was closer to 19:45 EST. Once all the passengers were boarded, the crew informed us that the pilot was missing. Another 20 minutes went by before he was located, at which point we were informed that the first mate was missing as well. By the time the pilot and first mate were both on the aircraft, it took another 30 minutes for them to get the aircraft ready. My flight from Toronto to Calgary was supposed to arrive at 19:40 MDT, the actual arrival time was 23:00 MDT. As a passenger, I am annoyed to say the least."
Pros: "Helpful crew. Seats seemed to have a little more room. The "red eye" flight was quiet and dark. All in all, pretty good."
Cons: "My movie/tv screen was broken on one flight."
Pros: "we sat on the airplane for over 3 hrs , waiting for someone to clean the waste water from the plane.! it was very alarming the lack of service , never seen anything like that before !"
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was great from Montreal to Toronto on wide body plane."
Cons: "The airport in Toronto where they crammed about 10 gates together in a small area with no air conditioning (it seemed). Also flight was delayed about an hour so had to wait in horrible conditions with no seats for a long time."
Pros: "Everything was great I had a Blast"
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Strong stink coming from bathroom. We were seated toward he back (maybe 2-3 rows from the restroom and it was strong smelling at times."
Pros: "Very kind & attentive crew made my flight to Europe enjoyable. Baggage check-in & pick-up was quick. It was one of the most affordable flight options. For the price, I was very satistied with my experience."
Cons: "Seats were smaller."
Cons: "Food was mediocre Entertainment movies outdated"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I hate the new policy where you have to pay extra to reserve any seat whatsoever. I got stuck in the emergency exit row, with no right arm rest, which made the flight very uncomfortable. My earbuds supplied by air canada were of the poorest quality, and I could barely hear the movie. Finally, when it was time to order food, there were hot meals listed on the menu, but the flight crew had to check to see if they were available."
Cons: "My flight was delayed all the way up until 11:40pm."
Pros: "Very smooth landing!"
Cons: "PA volume was bit loud"
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "Leg room is comfortable"
Cons: "Flight had one and half hour delay. I did not get E-mail reminder for Check-in, for my return flight from Toronto."
Pros: "The only thing I liked is the fact that I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I did not like the three house delay in Toronto. And, of course, we were always told, it will be just a few more minutes each time so for three hours we were stuck, milling around @ the gate.....well actually between two gates because they kept changing gates.......waiting for the flight. If I'd know it was going to be 3 hours, I would have maybe gotten some food and wandered away to find a place that had a spot to sit. Instead, standing on one foot and then the other, hungry for three house while Air Canada got their #@%*# together and found a plane that actually functioned appropriately."
Pros: "Oddly, entertainment options vastly superior on this 50-minute flight than on the 7-hour flight."
Cons: "Couldn't get ahold of anyone at the airline to reschedule"
Pros: "Flight, crew, and entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. The worst part was the disorganized mess at the US border checks in the Toronto airport. There were hours of wait and surely many international passengers came very close to missing their connections. The officers promised us that they will hold our connecting flights since they know we're already in the lines. However, be prepared for the stress of waiting in lines where there are not even restrooms."
Pros: "New plane, nothing was run down, the seats and tvs were in good repair."
Cons: "The board in and baggage drop of in Rome were a bit hectic and disorganized"
Pros: "The crew was nice look above. Cramped seating, bad food and no inflight entertainment unless you download their app."
Pros: "Food service was well timed, every time we got hungry, a new meal or snack arrived. Movie options were good."
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre. Boarding in Istanbul was a circus with our passports being checked 5 times and a supposedly "random" search of carry-on baggage, but almost all passengers were subjected to it. User interface of entertainment screens was slow and not helpful ( I have to click on each movie to even see the title? Terribly time consuming. ). Flight was in the middle of the day, but windows were darkened to make it look like night time almost the whole way. Why can't we control our own Windows?"
Pros: "For the most part all crews were courteous and friendly. Early boarding for a disabled person traveling with our family was problematic on each leg of the trip."
Cons: "Not being informed of the reasons for the delay of almost four hours in the Toronto to Amsterdam leg was a major disappointment. Legroom on both transatlantic legs was a problem as well."
Pros: "Price, international legs were good"
Cons: "Canadian domestic flight"
Pros: "Tat everyone was so friendly"
Cons: "Couldn't sleep"
Pros: "The plane was not full so there was lots of room to stretch out, very nice."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The delay at the airport due to the ice."
Pros: "The seats were decent - not too hard and not too cramped."
Cons: "The food was awful. The entertainment system didn't work properly which is not acceptable for a 13 hour flight. The staff didn't seem to care - rarely saw them."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
