Pros: "Movies I could plug in and go to sleep"
Cons: "Being woke up and asked if I want something to eat. I am sure others would disagree but I was exhausted and could not go back to sleep and I had already been up 30 hours."

Cons: "The flight and crew were very good. An hour late taking off with not explanation. Frustrating on an hour flight."

Cons: "I didn’t fly out of Philadelphia because the flight was 5 hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Had to go get my luggage, go home and try to fly today! Terrible! All my plans screwed up!"

Pros: "There were no hiccups and we arrived to the destination on time"
Cons: "Dirty seats, seemed like they had not been cleaned"

Pros: "People are couteous"
Cons: "Very cramped; big doing and dance about overhead room so I gate checked. There was empty overhead space and bags very slow to come out at baggage claim"

Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."

Cons: "I didn’t make it onto this flight because it was so delayed I needed to change flights while at the airport to make it onto the next one in time."

Cons: "Sound system on the in-flight movie was horrible. Headphones didn't work in the jack, static obscured the sound. Tried different headphones but had the same result. Not too much of a problem. Flight was short and wouldn't have had time to watch the full movie anyway. Everything else was great. Staff was amazing. Seats were comfortable. Boarding was fairly quick."

Pros: "Issues caused by weather, otherwise flight was fine."

Pros: "Everything went as expected"
Cons: "NOthing"

Pros: "Great service, and no issues to report."

Pros: "Service of staff"
Cons: "Lost my baggage and all of my flights where late causing me to miss one of my connections"

Pros: "CAs are very kind."
Cons: "CA skipped me for snack Last years trip to Japan I experienced same they skipped me. So, I try to bring own snack next time."

Pros: "Very confusing. United personnel running Air Canada ground operations. Took 30 plus minutes to check one bag because there were not enough staff checking passengers in. Then flight was supposed to be delayed 90 minutes. This meant missing connections so automatic rebooking took place. Flight was then not delayed and had to rebook on original flight. Naturally bag didn't make the trip."

Pros: "Our flight was cancelled. Rebooked for two days later, causing us to miss our cruise to Alaska! Never again with Air Canada.So disappointed in missing this trip we had planned for a long time."
Cons: "No help in getting us to our cruise on time."

Pros: "We did not make it to this flight since it was cancelled"
Cons: "We were rebooked on a flight with a short connection to London and they bumped us off that flight claiming that they could not get our bags in on time. Very poor customer service."

Pros: "Nothing - I didn't end up going to Toronto."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and I was forced to take a different flight. Ruined my plans in Edmonton that day. Last time I use air Canada."

Cons: "Did not reimburse new arrangements. Missed connection due to flight delays on Air Canada's behalf."

Cons: "I had to delay my whole trip one day as the fight was late by 5 hours. I had made specific plans to reach delhi on April 21. Since I am a physician, it wasn't easy to arrange coverage so I could make it to delhi for a particular event. And this delay in flight was a major disappointment and made all the effort futile."

Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, and the USB ports that allowed me to keep my iPad fully charged."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable."

Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. AC put us in a hotel for the night. Thanks for the $15 dinner voucher. Almost paid for the salad. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."

Pros: "Hi, even though i had online checked in, I had to wait 45 min in the queu just to leave my luggage. The reason for this increadable long queu was the insufficient crew. There were only three people were working on the desks for three different flights. It was really overwhelming!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "Air Canada over booked the flight from toronto to Montreal and approximately 10 pax were surprised - at the gate!!! - that no seat is available on the plane although we booked this flight months in advance. It is a shame. Although we recieved 200 dollar compensation check it does not cover damage has been done for me at this trip because of my late arrival to a very important business meeting. It is really not fare and shame."

Pros: "the flight was quick and the plane was comfortable"

Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The attendants on the flight were very unprofessional - they laughed the entire time during our boarding and safety demo. They were more interested in talking to the ground crew outside then welcoming the guests on their flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Small legroom, kinda hot inside the plane"

Pros: "We had to book our son on a flight from Phila to Toronto unexpectedly. We had lost our car keys in Canada and had no way to get new ones. (That's a long and complicated story.) our only option was to fly our son up with the spare key. Luckily he had just gotten his passport. He got a window seat and lived the adventure. The crew couldn't have been nicer."
Cons: "The last minute price if $1000 plus!!"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."

Cons: "Delayed Sat on a parked plane for 4 hours in PHL before taking off Missed Connection in Toronto No compensation/help with food or hotel"

Pros: "Thanks to the Air Canada for helping me take an earlier flight and make my connection in Vancouver"

Pros: "Space in economy Windows were great"

Cons: "No entertainment system. Very slow boarding."

Pros: "The crew treated me very well. I had reasonable leg room in economy class. The plane was beautiful, clean and super modern, one of the nicest aircraft that I have flown with in many years!"
Cons: "I ordered Asian vegan meals, but I was very disappointed with was presented to me. The food looked awful, tasted bland and insipid! I hope that that problem will be rectified on my return to the US."

Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. At some point we boarded the plane then asked to disembark it as we were still not ready for take off. They told us there were some weather issues in Toronto ... I looked at 3 different weather channels who said that the weather was mostly clear in Toronto with a few scattered showers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1. Flight left late. 2. After landing sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for gate. 3. After arriving at gate, had to wait 15 minutes to open door. 4. Poor service assisting me to get to connecting flight on other side of airport."

Pros: "I thought the service was excellent."
Cons: "There were some delays taking off, but I don't think it had to do with the airline"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "We did have a 30 minute delay, not a big deal but a delay none the less. And boarding was a bit of a mess as announcements were hard to hear."

Cons: "I had legal rights to, as I tried to explain to the agents. They dismissed and mocked me, until 3 hours later. By that time I had missed my flight."

Pros: "My flight was comfortable and without any issues. Good was great. The inflight entertainment should have more choices."

Pros: "The flight is not packed, so rather comfortable"

Cons: "My Mon couldn't fly because I never have noticed that she needed a Canadian Visa. She came from Mexico with her American visa and the experience buying a ticket with this airline was a nightmare."

Pros: "Space wine s"
Cons: "When service came to 40 they barely had anything but snacks. Long flight and only one round of service seems scanty. Flight half over when they came by. Difficult impossible to lower arm in middle seats"

Cons: "One of the flight attendants, Pasquale, was very brusque."

Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"

Cons: "Unable to access any of the movies/tv shows on the entertainment app. I was able to connect to app but there was an error message when trying to connect to any program."

Pros: "A very quick trip and the aircraft wasn't crowded at all. Very nice trip."

Pros: "The fact that they have on board entertainment for a short flight (and really good selection no less!) was awesome :)"
Cons: "The crew was a a bit snappy. Not rude necessarily, but not forgiving to infrequent fliers who don't know certain rules. I wish they were nicer."

Cons: "This site allowed me to book a CANCELED flight. I found out 20 hours before my scheduled flight that I was on an 11:20pm flight not a 7pm flight."
