Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Gate agent told me it wasn't his job to quickly verify if my luggage had made it on the plane after my 10 minute sprint in PHX. I know at my job, I don't get the luxury of telling customers "it's not my job", especially when the customer has had a bad experience with us."
Pros: "Enough leg room. Free movies"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that, I was ask to help a non English person, whom spoke French find their way to the departure area from check in. I could not understand their broken English. That I feel is the job of the person or staff trying to check them in."
Pros: "Crew aircraft and was given an exit window seat no charge"
Pros: "Excellent. on Time. Friendly crew"
Pros: "Planes were punctual and smooth flight"
Cons: "don’t know! didn’t get to phoenix because of plane issues"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed and was not cleaned at all, may be because of short of time, but minimized the further delay, so acceptable."
Pros: "Everything was very adequate, nothing special about this flight."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed about 35 minutes just due to traffic on the runway. Out of all the flights on our international trip, the only issues we experienced were with American airports. You would think an issue like this would be readily solved by foreplanning, but instead we sat on the tarmac just waiting for our turn to take off. Some form of entertainment on the plane would've been nice. Or at least a place to charge electronics. Our bags arrived at our destination before we did, and although I immediately received a text alerting me to this fact, I was dismayed to find out they were in an entirely different terminal of the DFW airport. After 24 hours of travel and very little sleep, instead of just walking off the plane and retrieving our bags, our group of 20 weary souls had to first determine where our luggage was, catch a bus to a different terminal ( because of the size of our group we couldn't all fit on the first bus, so had to wait for the second bus), and then track down our bags. American Airlines did absolutely nothing to help make this experience any easier for us. Five of our party were in wheelchairs due to various levels of exhaustion or ailment, and all we were told is "I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do." This little adventure delayed us about an hour."
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Pros: "Personell at Bagage drop was nice"
Cons: "First the time between connection flights was very short. Then after just making the. Innextion sat for almost 2 hours on board . Missed introductory lunch for my new summer job at my college -"
Cons: "Essentially a bus ride with the comfort of a wooden bench."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "I could never sync in the entertainment app and wifi"
Pros: "The Check In Agents were so kind and helpful especially when they found out we were having a rough time with a family situation.....So blessed to have those two ladies working for such a magnificent airlines"
Cons: "you have become like the rest of the wolf pack......charges on everything! Try become like Pan Am of days of old!"
Cons: "Servicio a bordo; un sandwiche viejo y agua!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Gate agent told me my bag would fit under seat but when I got on board found it would not and had to do gate check."
Pros: "The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane seats are EXTREMELY cramped. We were early but had to sit for 15 minutes waiting for the plane in our spot to leave."
Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."
Pros: "The flight attendant lady from 1st class/Business held my suit jacket for me to grab on the way out. Simple thing, but very thoughtful and kind. Love it."
Cons: "The negatives are puny compared to what made me happy in this trip. Thanks AA! Please thank that nice lady for me!"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "No leg room, tight."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "How spacious it felt and there were film selections"
Cons: "My film kept stopping randomly."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding is typical disorderly. Seating us getting smaller."
Pros: "TV and on time flight"
Cons: "delay missed my connection.."
All good but wish they had offered ear phones.
Pros: "Crew is great!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "Air Canada changed our seating on day of travel. I had ordered tickets over a month in advance and scheduled seating for my wife and I on our 3 leg flight. Air Canada changed our seating on the 1st and 3rd leg and we were no longer sitting together."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "It’s a crowded plane with tiny seats. The passengers in my row who had not been able to bathe did not make the 5 hours go by quickly."
Pros: "The seat is reasonably comfortable. One of the flight attendants was full of smiles and very friendly, which was so nice."
Cons: "The audio jack for the entertainment system was not working. The food was basically only a cup of beverage and mini pretzels."
Cons: "2 hour delay because of rain west jet and porter were on time but air canada delayed My seat was apparently broken had a window seat with no one else in my row and then I was placed ina Center seat although other options were open The attendant comes on the air and says they need to manually start the engine one by one because the electric start to make it easy was not working All and all not a pleasant experience at all"
Cons: "Dirty plane, garbage stuffed in seat pocket. Tray table disgusting!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived a bit early, excellent trip"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats the the very rear"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive staff. Good service. My toddler, husband and I boarded first because of our child, so we had plenty of time to get comfy on the plane. The flight attendants served sufficient drinks and snacks for the 1 hour flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours so my toddler and I had significantly longer to wait, which is not too fun. However, I understand this is unavoidable sometimes."
Cons: "Signed up for txt notifications, but not informed of flight dep delays; told repeatedly of 'full flights at del gate but not the case, lots of empty seats; delayed again on arrival, waiting for 'assigned' berthing to open up, which was assigned to another plane; had to walk 'miles' to get to security once inside terminal - why doesn't AirCanada get decent treatment in assigned berthing at Pearson, especially after midnight when there must be hardly any flights arriving..."
Pros: "Flight was nice and quick."
Cons: "Not sure if the plane was fully clean (had an old smell to it); plane was also packed."
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "We paid extra for bulkhead seats at the front of economy. One of the stewards working in business class repeatedly came to get something out if the compartment over my head. The noise woke me up over and over. I finally asked him what he was getting and he told me it was his lunch! Irritating."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Overall experience with kayak was too poor and I paid a fortune just to have my flight changed, spent 8 hours in Frankfurt transiting no advise from kayak and no way to contact kayak"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "This was a +10 hour trans Atlantic flight. We walked on and immediately noticed there were no TV screens. I expected that the crew would be handing out portable screens instead which would have been ok but pretty inconvenient. This was not the case. We asked the crew and were told that to have entertainment for the flight we would have to download the Air Canada flight into our OWN devices and connect to the airplane wifi. They also explained that you can't download the app while connected to the airplane wifi so anyone who wanted entertainment had to scramble to download the app while we were still on the ground and Use cellular data! at this point 300 people were either panicking because they didn't have a personal device with them, didn't have a charger for their device and so would have power issues or were forced to use up roaming data because they had non Canadian phone plans!!! At the very least staff should have told passengers about this setup while they were waiting at the gate, so that people would have time to download the app with airport wifi! add to all this the fact that the app was extremely low quality and the options for movies/show were disappointingly dated and limited. This was not officially a cheap low cost flight for my family but the service we got certainly would categorize it as such. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Air Canada used to be one of the best airlines in North America now I would rate them as one of the worst! Every since they started the air Canada rouge flights. Most uncomfortable seats in the business. Also staff from call center to check in are rude and act like they are doing you a favor."
Cons: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."
Pros: "Great gluten free meal. Calling ahead of time to order was well worth it."
Cons: "Why not board front to rear. It would save mega aisle clog during boarding!"
Pros: "Able to board in advance of pilots arriving."
Cons: "Due to construction work on one of the runways, pilots were delayed as well as takeoff."
Pros: "Not certain the type of aircraft used for the flight from Orlando to Toronto, but it had more leg room and more comfortable seats that the flight to Orlando which was on an Airbus. The seats were a wee bit wider and the extra few inches of leg room made the difference between a completely unbearable flight and one that was "poor." (See comments about the crowding and heat.)"
Cons: "We were returning after a cruise, spent part of the day on a shore excursion before being dropped off at the airport 5 hours before our flight. There was no rep at the check-in counter until 3 hours before the flight which meant we had to sit in the terminal for two hours. If they could have had one rep on duty to check in early arrivals, we could have proceeded through security and spent time in the MCO Lounge which would have been more comfortable than the terminal. Once their check-in counter opened it took about 2 hours to clear that and security. Once on board the sold out flight, we were told it was too cold in the front of the plane; while in the back it was baking. For a flight departing Florida, I would expect the airline to have A/C running before we boarded."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "The credit was not polite and quite unfriendly."
Cons: "Flight was late. The status screens in the Toronto airport depicted incorrect information."
Pros: "The crew was nice and understanding"
Cons: "I was stuck up against the back galley with no armrest on the aisle but that was only the beginning when the guy in front reclined his seat the seat back it was dangerously close to my head. In the event of turbulence it would have been easy to sustain a massive blow to the head from the seat in front of me during a whiplash type motion. The person that approved this seating arrangement should be terminated."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "This flight is a step off the path."
Cons: "Horrible to say the least"
Cons: "Was an overnight flight and not very comfortable but didn't expect anything different."
Pros: "The on board crew was excellent - very patient and forthcoming. I could not say the same thing about the ticketing agents or the boarding procedure."
Cons: "The seating on on this plane was the most uncomfortable I have experienced in a long time - with the exception of my outbound flight which featured the same type of plane. Air Canada tries to charge you for every little thing and I guess that I am one of those people that does not appreciate being nickled and dimed. I will look for other airlines the next time I book a flight to Canada. What a disappointment!"
Cons: "People could be friendlier"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was great!"
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Pros: "Crew was efficient, and the plane was on time."
Cons: "The seating and luggage storage was a bit cramped."
Pros: "i didn't like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed and everything else since boarding was a mess. It was hard for the fly hostess to keep her calm and we knew she was stressed, as much as many passengers who lost their connection or who had really tied ones. I noticed also that it wasn't the only flight delayed so I am not sure if this is usual with Air Canada."
Cons: "There was a screaming child and nothing was done about it the entire flight."
Pros: "I liked the service. I dont like flying much but the stewdardes made me feel comfortable so it was a good flight"
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "smooth flight, great pilots"
Cons: "Flight attendants unprofessional, airport stuff unpleasant"
Pros: "On time, courteous, great movie selection for the very long flight. Food was decent."
Pros: "Over all I love air canada"
Cons: "Food too tight on giving you anything"
Cons: "Toronto staff was not helpful in aiding us at the gate. We had to wait u tip anther staff member showed up. We boarded and then sat on the plane for 30 minutes while waiting for crew to bring luggage. The entire Toronto experience of customs was unpleasant and chaotic. We will try to avoid flying through Toronto again on an international flight."
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."
Cons: "That i showed up in maple time and the plane was oversold, then they put me on another flight which made my pick up at another airport costly!"
Pros: "Trip was fine. Staff were nice. Nothing special, though. Best part is we arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight staff was good; staff person I talked to on the phone the day before was impolite until I came right out and asked him not to be. Then, he changed and was much better helping confirm my flight info. THE AIRPORT IN TORONTO IS RIDICULOUSLY BIG. IT NEEDS A SHUTTLE OF SOME KIND. Elderly people and folks with disabilities would be exhausted, even with help from golf carts."
Cons: "Not social distanced full flight"
Pros: "Flight attendant was good"
Cons: "Everything else needed improvement"
Pros: "Free snacks and water while we waited for delayed flight. Not the best snacks, but better than nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2+ hours"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the first most important part is to depart on time keeping in mind the customers schedule as well that are travelling with the airline. No communication between the airline and ground department, was not happy at all and probably not fly unites again. Also they charge bags?"
Cons: "Delayed by 15mins"
Cons: "The seats are incredibly cramped. Also, they want $10 for 4.5 oz of cheese and crackers. Rip off."

Cons: "Late to board. Slow to run through safety. Late late late"
Pros: "Everything ran on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Although there was a slight delay, the flight was pleasant and the service very nice. We got twice something to drink and a snack. For the short flight, quite remarkable."

Cons: "San Francisco to Ontario Delay for 10 min Then another dealy for 30 min After we board we had to waite inside the air craft for Cataring company to delever food for first classe"

Cons: "Bag was sent LAX. I have very important documents and items in my bag. Still waiting on it to arrive..."
Cons: "Kept me keep waiting for aircraft for 4 hours and toward the end told me that the flight got cancelled. Then they scheduled me to the 10:45pm flight, and the aircraft didn't come in till 12:40am. I've been waiting at the airport for more than 13 hours"
Cons: "the plane was cold early in the morning. I was feeling cold in the plane."
Cons: "It was a very small plane."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and fast. Great crew!"
Cons: "The food is terrible! Why give out anything?"
Cons: "Plane got super delayed last minute without notice until arriving there at the gate."
Pros: "Having a ride from the east coast to the west coast."
Cons: "Going west to Chicago - no attendant personnel ready to fly out of Chicago. Flight delay. Chicago to SFO - inflight toilet equipment failure resulting in a 3 hr delay. How long does it take to check the toilet while the plane is on the ground?"
Pros: "Awesome stewardess Donna gave me the opportunity to find a clear row to myself for more room being a wider guy and was an all around class A attendant. Excellent hospitality, thank her much. And thank the crew for such a smooth flight!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was nice."
Cons: "The délayer that was due to The weather"

Cons: "have no idea if I'll even make it thru the day."
Pros: "Staff seemed lively and created good atmosphere; thank you."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional in spit of all the grumbly passengers."
Cons: "First boarding was aborted and passengers were sent back up jetway to waiting area. This was due to a mechanical issue with the plane, which I am glad they noticed and took care of. However, getting to the plane's door and then being told to go back to the waiting area was unpleasant."
Cons: "Yet another delay.."
Pros: "Google service on United Airlines not pleasant in the flights were delayed all the time"
Cons: "Bad experience flying with United Airlines sorry"
Pros: "When I arrived in Ontario my bags were there."
Cons: "The plan to San Fran was packed. I had the window seat in the last row. It was terrible. From SanFran to Ontario the flight was a very small plan and the stewardess was not very helpful. Just doing her job."
