Pros: "Great crew support & well above the typical airline food."
Cons: "USB charging ports would been nice"
Cons: "There were several announcements to download the Air Canada app in order to access in flight entertainment. They must have been 5-6 announcements about this. WiFi access was to start after take off in order to use the app. but was never available."
Cons: "The fact I was delayed 2 hours. Missed my connection. Spoke with customer care about getting a flight out of Toronto the next morning because of connection issues instead of late that evening."
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "Such a small plane"
Pros: "Efficient and quick, no issues."
Pros: "entertainments - many choices"
Cons: "few cabin attandants were not easily likabke..."
Pros: "There is nothing to like about Air Canada anymore.. unless you happen to like the abuse and indifferent service. Employees seem disengaged."
Cons: "AC used to be mindful or customers with connections. This is the reason I booked all segments with air canada. Found out the hard way it is no longer the case. Lesson learned. Missed connection and ended up on stand by for the next flight ( no more protected seats folks). Was not even refunded the money paid for seat assignment on the missed connection."
Cons: "Would nice to have better and more movie choices"
Pros: "1 stewardess was great"
Cons: "Flights were delayed. Did not check boarding passes which was scary."
Pros: "-Great food -Great room -Great people"
Cons: "-Movies were the same; not much to pick from"
Pros: "Entertainment still free with behind each seat screens still."
Cons: "Only one security line to U.S. connections in Montreal Trudeau, which was slow and disappointing as both my wife and I are Nexus holders and usually enjoy relaxed screening in shorter lines."
Pros: "I got from point A to point B"
Cons: "I lost over a day of my trip because a flight was cancelled and wasted 6 hours trying to rebook with no help from the staff, who were extremely rude. Everyone on the canceled flight had to be aggressive at getting a new flight booked because there was no help. Every time you asked an associate from Aur Canada for help, the passed the problem off not taking any responsibility. If your name is on my ticket, then it's your responsibility. Worst experience traveling by far. Also lost over a day of my expensive trip that I've been waiting to go on for awhile and saved my money for a year. I lost hundreds of dollars in events and hotels. Avoid Air Canada if possible"
Cons: "They airline cancelled our return flight and booked us on another flight more than 2 hours later. We had an event to attend that night so we asked if they could book us on United so we wouldn't miss it. The agent outright lied and said there were no other United flights before then. As we were waiting for our flight, we heard the agents call the final call for a flight to Chicago. Truly disgusted with Air Canada - will never fly them again!"
Cons: "Had to book another flight"
Pros: "Plane was quiet enough to sleep"
Cons: "A couple people left their window blinds open so the midnight sun kept the cabin brighter than necessary"
Pros: "Polite and courteous staff."
Cons: "Seats were so u comfortable. If the person in front of you put seat back, it's literally on your face. Seats are too closely packed. So flying 3hours with an uncomfortable seat upright isn't pleasant at all."
Pros: "I don't like air canada"
Cons: "Check in crew was rude and awful. Flight cancelled without notification, thankfully the minute we noticed I called customer service. Waited an hour on hold before luckily grabbing 2 last seats on a flight going out the next morning."
Pros: "Enough empty seats that I could lay out to sleep. The price was very reasonable."
Cons: "Hard to believe in 2017 an airline can offer a 9-10 hour flight without any in-flight entertainment system."
Pros: "Clean well maintained aircraft, friendly staff"
Cons: "Not even SNACKS are free anymore on Air Canada!"
Pros: "Video screen in seat back so I could watch movies"
Cons: "I forced to check my carry on bag despite the fact that there was room in overhead compartments. Consequently my bag was damaged when loaded onto plane, or when unloaded onto baggage carousel. Disorganized loading of passengers onto plane."
Cons: "Lack of refreshment choice."
Pros: "The people at Air Canada were friendly and clear with what was going on."
Cons: "Flight was delayed even though the plane was at the gate."
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Cons: "Late boarding again with Air Canada."
Pros: "Hey feed you well and offer movies even it's just an hour long flight."
Pros: "No complaints about the flight attendants"
Cons: "Seating very tight and uncomfortable. Luggage handling is the worst I have ever seen. Out of 6 in our group, 2 had lost luggage and 2 had misplaced luggage. Airport customer service didn't care if items were lost or misplaced. Very unprofessional all the way around!"
Cons: "Not enough food for passengers on board. Flight attendants were visibly upset, rude, unable to handle the passenger load, uncommunicative when problems arose."
Cons: "There was 3 hour delay on the first flight, that made me miss my connecting flight then they booked another flight which was not a direct flight but with an additional stop. I reached Toronto 7 hours later than my original landing time"
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Pros: "Attendants came around multiple times to help. Great pay menu items. Service desk explained the plane would be full and I should check my bag so I could not stress about finding space in a compartment."
Cons: "Ran out of some pay menu items. one headphone jack was loose and didn't function correctly. Wide attendants are too used to there jobs and just plow through aisles bumping anyone a bit too close to the walkway instead of moving sideways. More concerned with corralling bodies and going through the motions."
Cons: "Even though we checked in early, and had a three hour layover, they managed to delay our bags. It will be also 36 hours until we have them."
Cons: "Only in Canada they make you remove headset for takeoff and landing."
Pros: "We got there safe."
Cons: "Got to airport in morning only to find out flight delayed 3.5 hours. No prior notification so instead of waiting in my comfortable home I got to wait at airport. Check in lady was a witch - sorry I made you do your job. Bounced my luggage for being 3 lbs over. Lame excuse of plane mechanical problems for delay. My girlfriend flew same flight 10 days earlier and had same thing happen. If Air Canada has that many mechanical issues I'm not feeling warm and fuzzy about them."
Cons: "Plane was broken. Air condition did not worked. Flight was 2.5 hours late. Missed our connection to Budapest."
Pros: "Food was decent, beverage service was frequent"
Cons: "Service alarm button is in armrest, dings constantly during flight when people sleep on it"
Pros: "Flights on time and cabin crew pleasant."
Cons: "Where do I begin? I flew round trip SFO to Glasgow via Toronto , a route I do frequently. Usually use British Airways, but tried AC this time. Very unimpressed! Transatlantic portion of journey worse, food and entertainment awful!"
Cons: "Without notice, flight was delayed more than 3 hours."
Pros: "The entertainment options were decent. Food wasn't bad. The crew courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The booking and ticketing department for Air Canada messed up quite a bit with our trip overall. It wasn't just one narrow event: even after the delayed flight, and 6 hour phone call to get rebooked, we had to use international roaming charges at the Shanghai airport to call and get them to correct an error they made with our flight out of Shanghai. The flights themselves were alright, but I want to use every opportunity I have to complain about the booking and customer service process."
Cons: "10:30am flight delayed for three hours. They moved my flight to 7:30am and no one told me. Someone claims they did not have my email address. The thing is, I received at least three emails prior to the flight from AirCanada, one was my itinery. So whoever couldn't find my email address must be looking on another planet or something."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, offered plenty of water to drink, entertainment consoles worked on this flight. Suitcases didn't take long to be unloaded."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Attendant told us to come back tomorrow and we could get on the same flights just a day later. Really?? not that stupid. Had problems getting a room overnight - management said we weren't in the system. Gentleman at air canada desk very rude - even told his partner in front of us he couldn't stand this part of his job."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Pros: "The meal provision and drink service was very speedy, seats were relatively comfortable. No on-board video was available only wifi service through personal devices."
Cons: "We had a delay for 1 hour 20 minutes after boarding with no air conditioning. My other Air Canada flights also had no air conditioning while awaiting takeoff, and it was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. The crew tried to make it better by bringing cold water around as we waited but it was unbearably hot for a solid 30 minutes."
Cons: "The frustrating portion was the airline's lack of desire to fix our problems. The first flight was late because of mechanical issues and then Air Canada was not at all forthcoming in getting us rebooked on the next flight. Something that should have been quite simple involved me having to fight with workers just to get put on a new flight -- nobody wanted to actually do the work."
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: "Once my flight was delayed, it caused much confusion, missed connections, and rerouting"
Cons: "My 10:10 flight got cancelled snd AC put us on an earlier flight so that my layover was over 6 hours in Toronto to catch my flight to Tokyo Haneda. That was very painful."
Cons: "Over 1 hour waiting on phone and disconnected. Terrible. Check-in people didn't even say one single word of apology. they suggested call Air Canada."
Cons: "They put two people in one seat flight attendant was rude , I was traveling with my mother who has an artificial knee and they did not sit us together. The flight attendant laughed at us and said that it wasn't her fault . Awful awful awful"
Pros: "The amount of awesome free entertainment. And the standard economy seat was roomy."
Cons: "Would like a snack on trip since it was 4 hours long. But otherwise pretty good."
Pros: "United canceled this flight."
Cons: "If United didn't cancel this flight and then rudely answer questions about a full refund."
Cons: "Less crowded, with better two-bag carryons enforcement forces coach and more latitude for First Class."
Pros: "Kind, attentive crew who were very professional"
Cons: "The armrest control for the TV embedded in the seat in front of me from Pittsburgh to Denver didn't work, so I was forced to watch sports-ball while trying to read a book/work on my laptop. There's so little space between seats that it felt like an intrusion into my personal space."
Pros: "Meh. Once we took off it was fine."
Cons: "It was almost 6 hours late. Performed brilliantly like a classic United delay updated in 30 minute increments? Could have taken the next two flights and left earlier. Could have driven and got there earlier. Luckily we were able to get three really crappy seats on a later connection to Frankfurt"
Pros: "The crew was very good and the seats were also fine"
Pros: "Delayed but we arrived almost on time"
Cons: "Terrible that United charges for Carry on bags!!! Most airlines don’t do that but this is almost getting like flying in other low cost airlines. The price was not super competitive and on top they give you mediocre Seats, they split your family members just to push you to pay for the upgrades."
Cons: "Gate crew was grumpy. Treated passengers as children"
Pros: "Boarded a little early and everything was moved along smoothly and efficiently. Quick and painless. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "Small seat space"
Pros: "United and American Airlines are subpar at best. I had a poor experience with rude staff and the seats were VERY uncomfortable."
Cons: "United and American Airlines are subpar at best. I had a poor experience with rude staff and the seats were VERY uncomfortable."
Cons: "I saw your email informing me that departure would be delayed almost an hour, that was sent 50 min after its scheduled departure. By then I was out of the airport, picking up my car in long-term parking, and making my miserable way back home. It was a 3 and a half hour drive to get there."
Pros: "I liked the staff at united in Pittsburgh who helped solve the real mess with my reservation"
Cons: "I did not like having my flight to Düsseldorf changed to flight to Frankfurt without being told of the change. That flight was late so I missed my connection to GVA- Frankfurt is a dreadful airport"
Pros: "Flight was very smooth - landed early!!"
Cons: "They lost our luggage"
Cons: "No drinking water was offered on the plane from Pittsburgh to Washington DC."
Pros: "Smooth flight, kind of cramped but overall not bad."
Cons: "Snacks only available for purchase, cramped seats with limited room."
Cons: "Delay in departing Pittsburgh and also in landing in Newark. Boarding in Newark was put in a corner and United personal at the alternate counter was not polite. Delay landing in Venice and apparently at higher speed than normal, which created alarm at the firefighting statin in Marco Polo's airport."
Cons: "There was a gate change and I did not receive notification. There was no email, text or app change nor was it announced over the loud speaker. I had to get a hotel for the night and I'm flying standby in the morning."
Cons: "I don't have a problem with a flight being delayed for any reason. That is simply one of the hazards of flying. However, the PIT->ORD flight was delayed multiple times for unknown reasons. If the airline would have given a realistic timetable, customers could have managed their time much easier. Instead, United Airlines kept delaying takeoff for 15-20 minutes, multiple times. When they finally get the customers into the boarding process, they act like they're doing you a favor. Poorly managed, customers manipulated."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Everything great"
Cons: "Missed the lufthanza flight by 5 minutes. United should have coordinated to have Lufthansa wait for 6+ passengers making the same connection or should have had an airport cart expedite us across terminals and gates to make the flight."
Cons: "Stuck in last row by bathroom no head or leg room. Had picked seats on exit roe and agent moved us without asking. Weather delayed flt 3x ! Very turbulent and choppy, crew was great handled it like pros even when same person threw up repeatedly on the plane, and people kept getting up when told not too."
Cons: "They kept delaying the flight. It stressed me out."
Pros: "On time; good legroom"
Cons: "Paid an up charge for a seat that didn't recline; guy next to me was farting all flight long"
Pros: "It was in time. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "It was crowded."
Cons: "the wifi connection did not work."
Cons: "Not many updates, very delayed, no drinks given out. Crew very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough legroom for someone 6'5"."
Pros: "On time good service very clean"
Pros: "Leaving and arriving on time Comfortable head rest Option to watch tv for free"
Cons: "Inefficient boarding process led to confusing lines at the gate and slow movement on the plane."
Pros: "Nothing, as you sent this prematurely and my flight hasn't even left yet and was delayed by more than two hours."
Cons: "Being told we could stretch our legs and leave the plane, only to be told a minute later "never mind" because it should be "just a few minutes". That was an hour ago."
Pros: "After boarding late, e erroneous finally got seated. Then announcement that due to weather delays (snow flurries) Newark, we were delayed and had to deplane! So, everyone gets off, slowly. Long story short we were late by about just an hour. The crew, the plane were fine, just tough to have to spend so much time at the airport sitting around and then to be delayed ( on, off and on again) is what made it a just ok trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Cons: "My father is 89 and our whole family went to see him off. My husband, 3 children and myself. When I went to the ticket gate to check him in, the ladies did not issue a family pass to us. They said only 1 member of our family can go with him to wheel him to the gate. So my husband went since my father had 2 carry on luggage plus he wheeled my father. So the ladies were not very understanding. At that age I do hope he makes it back in 6 months for us all to see him again! We've been issued passes before and their only excuse was it was busy which it was not at all, no lines anywhere."
Pros: "This leg home had nice United staff but bumpy. I got seasick but the cabin folks were kind. The leg out in a small plane was bad with one surly female cabin aide. I will tell United in a separate correspondence."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by handled quite well"
Cons: "Overpriced food that didn't look good and very expensive entertainment options"
Pros: "Economy+ seats were very nice. The stroopwaffel snack beats Delta hands down. Check-in was smooth and we had no hiccups."
Cons: "The boarding lines were not clearly delineated. It seemed like there were gate check offers, but audio systems at the gate were not very coherent. Paying for Direct-TV is so-so."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Lining up is about getting overhead space. It gets brutal and awful atmosphere."
Pros: "The onboard crew was lovely, I especially appreciated them asking those who were not transferring to another plane to wait until those who were got off as we were 45 minutes late"
Cons: "The male gate agent in pittsburgh was the rudest and least helpful person I have every met in all my travels. When flight was delayed for weather reasons, and looking like we might not connect in ORD he could only say 'call united'"
Cons: "Recent airline corporation consolidation has greatly reduced consumer choice. The surviving major airlines, in their effort to cut costs, sacrifice quality control and assurance. Pittsburgh's status as "no longer a major hub" was on full display here. United needed to have customer service agents available on site, but they did not. The review could easily turn into an essay on United's complete failure (ask the remaining passengers who were supposed to be on the PIT-IAD), but such a review would not change the state of affairs in the airline industry. I will be contacting United reps to lodge an official complaint."
Cons: "When I passed a crew member and asked him where to put my bag because there was no more space in the overhead compartments, he replied with a snarky and cocky attitude that was not appreciated in the least."
Pros: "Flight was 15 minutes early, which helped with a tight connecting flight. Crew was very kind and understanding to this fact."
Cons: "My seat was switched to a middle seat with no reason or justification."
Cons: "We had a confirmed reservation on tickets that I bought months ago. However, when we went to get our seats, the flight had been oversold. We were involuntarily booted off the flight- even though one on standby got a seat, and another person did not show up- we could have gotten on the flight! We were heavily compensated and the staff were as generous as they could be, but it was completely frustrating and upsetting when you have to go through that, after ahead time planning to be booted off a flight like that."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take off yet. The flight was cancelled. I got 5 hrs sleep and had to be back at the airport, so I can have the longest day ever, but I guess that doesn't matter, because nobody does anything except shuffle you along"
Pros: "Pittsburgh International Airport's wheelchair service was excellent (provided separate from United Airlines)."
Cons: "I was traveling for the first time in crutches. As soon as I approached the check-in counter, the lady at the counter asked me rudely "Are you checking in any luggage?". I first told her that I requested assistance getting to the gate and asked if it would be by a wheelchair or a cart. She didn't answer the question, and repeated the same question. Since I had one carry-on size bag, I asked if I need to check it in, or if I can bring it with me when they help me get to the gate. To which she replied in a very irritated tone, "I'm asking you if you need to check it in! Can you bring the bag on-board and put it away in the overhead bin YOURSELF WITHOUT ANY HELP?", hinting that no one will provide any help... At this point, I went ahead and checked in my bag. Thank God the wheelchair service is provided by a separate vendor, because he was wonderful and helpful. While we waited to board, the flight was delayed a few times. I could not hear the announcement from where I was sitting, but I noticed people started to make a line by the central info counter. 4:42pm, I received the cancellation notice via email. Because of my injury, I was unable to wait in line for long, so I chose to sit and wait next to the counter, until the line got shorter. 1 hour later, the line was growing even longer. 6pm, I re-booked a new flight for the next day via iPhone app, however, it was still showing the old boarding pass that I was automatically re-booked for. I still had to talk to someone from United to confirm, also to ask for wheelchair to get back to the main building, so I continued to wait. At one point, one of the United employees moved to the side counter to make a call re: another flight that arrived. I went and stood right in front of her and said "Excuse me, I have a quick question about wheelchair service". She looked at me right in my eyes, but she started talking to the other person on the phone. After she hung up, she ignored me and went back to the center counter, leaving me confused as to what just happened... At this point, I did not even want to make another attempt to ask for help. 7:20pm, the line went down to 3 people; a gentleman with a bad knee, another gentleman with a bad leg and myself on crutches... Am I the only one to think there is something wrong with this picture? 7:40pm, I was finally on the way back to the main building with a wheelchair service, which by the way is run by a group of amazing people. I am not complaining about the delays and cancellations. I understand it happens. I am not expecting that someone like me with temporary disability automatically receives first place in line. I do, however, wish United was more aware of some people who are in need of assistance, while being fair to other passengers. I cannot imagine how difficult it is for people with disabilities to travel with United Airlines."
Pros: "Because my flight was delayed for three hour from Pittsburgh to Chicago and sit there for eight hours until my next flight to Sacramento and I was not happy"
Cons: "Customer service would not let me take flight home from reservation and only resolution was an additional 200 fee plus the price difference in cost of ticket There is no logical reason why the airline would attempt to charge additional fees in this circumstance as my first leg I allowed an open seat for standby passengers which benefited United monetarily should this have been a non rev passenger and essentially the cost I paid for round trip I was only asking to use for one way due to emergency circumstances. I strongly suggest having a valid reason outside of taking advantage of people by overcharging because the customer is at the airlines mercy. Simply wrong!"
