It was a smooth flight, comfortable surroundings
Cons: "Too many pasengers had carryons. Lots of confusion on the plane for storage"
Pros: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"
Cons: "2,5 hours delayed. Econ seats are tiny with zero legroom."
Pros: "compliance in the boarding"
Cons: "in general the male flight attendant was very disinterested in resolving nonconformities such as that the light of the chair did not turn on or request for support in completing Customs form and uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Good service, surprisingly good food, smooth and efficient."
Cons: "The premium seating we paid extra for because we need leg room (my partner and I are 6'+) was the first row behind the 1st class seperation wall...so no way to extend legs by placing feet under the seat in front. Not very comfortable or worth $100 IMO."
Cons: "baggage delayed at least 48 hours"
Cons: "Air Canada try their best to charge you for anything and everything! Including services that I just take for granted on other airlines (such as entertainment). Never booking AC again"
Pros: "Not much, plane was full and felt like a sardine even after paying extra for more room"
Cons: "Air Canada is trying to grab every nickel it can wring out of flyers"
Pros: "90 minutes"
Cons: "90 minutes"
Pros: "I had requested assistance which was excellent."
Cons: "The small seats"
Pros: "Good variety of movies"
Cons: "Flight was really late (2.5hrs), certain flight attendants were impolite and unhelpful (which, granted it was very late but also it's a job so?) The main thing was other passengers around me being extremely rude or disruptive toward other passengers"
Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff. Took into consideration who was travelling together and left a positive impression! Plane boarded early and was loaded and ready to roll AHEAD of scheduled take off time."
Pros: "the asian guy steward was the best he made my 12 year old happy by providing the pizza and food that she ordered perfect its just the professional way he serve it was exceptional a kind word"
Cons: "Zone 5 boarding even after I had pre checked in online."
Pros: "Professionalism Pilot kept us informed"
Cons: "No free snack (like peanuts) was offered. It would be nice to be able to nibble on on a snack along with the one free drink."
Cons: "5 h delay in MDT and 10 h delay in Toronto. Absolutely terrible"
Pros: "It was overall a good experience, cannot complain about the service as it was great."
Cons: "The weather caused a bumpy return flight but that is not the airlines fault."
Cons: "OK, I get it, so they're not Southwest, I can't get credit on a future flight. But what's the advantage of giving me NO benefit for cancelling? I just didn't show up and they had a surprise empty seat at the last minute. Who wins?"
Pros: "They provided bags, napkins and were very understanding every trip down the aisle to the lavatories"
Cons: "Baggage pick-up facilities at Newark Airport"
Pros: "the team helpful"
Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."
Cons: "They had nothing together. My first flight was delayed so I got in late and my connecting flight was rescheduled for 5 hours later. Their "free meal voucher" for rescheduling amounts to one slice of pizza and no drink. The airport then lost my checked bag and kept me waiting in one room for 4 of those hours to where I was still rushing to catch my next flight. Air Canada then forgot to assign a plane to my new second flight so I waited another 2 hours to board. Once boarded, the airline made us wait another hour while they loaded bags, then unloaded some of the wrong bags thy put on. They then tacked 25 minutes in the wrong direction and we went all the way back. I have never seen so many people rushing the customer service desks because they missed their connecting flights, throughout the entire time I was stuck in Toronto. Additionally, their "in flight movie system" doesn't work unless you rent one of their iPads. It prompts you to download Java Flash player even if you already have it instead of asking to run it. Then once you allow it, you get a 1-2 second animation then the movie breaks. There are similar errors with their music and tv show features, I tried all of these in my laptop and phone."
Pros: "Great service! Drinks, water, snacks and attendants came by so often. They were all attentive and had great communixation!"
Pros: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Cons: "At first, due to condensation issue, a lot of water was dripping from ceiling to passenger seats and crews were just passing tissues and saying its natural and they cannot avoid this issue... I fly a lot through out the year and never seen this happening before. Okay, this can happen but how crews dealt with the issue was so unprofessional. Also, on my way back from ICN-YVR, my seat was right beside the washroom and the door of this washroom was not fully closed when it was not in use. Therefore, it lighted up all the time and smelled all the time as well. I complained this to one of crews and told her to close the door at least whenever she was passing by. She didn't do at all haha. Cannot believe this is one of Canada's major flight companies..."
Pros: "Nothing. I spent the whole 5+ hour flight cursing (in my mind) the entire Air Canada executive team. This was my first, and will be my last trip on this horrible airline."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. I'm assuming that all Air Canada executives are either very short people, or they've never tested their product. I've never flown on such an absurdly uncomfortable airline seat configuration, and I fly over 100,000 miles a year worldwide (including discount airlines in China!). If you have long legs, and your flight is more that two hours, DO NOT fly Air Canada Rouge. You've been warned!"
Pros: "The flight itself was great, smooth and quiet and we arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "The boarding was way too slow"
Pros: "People working at the check-in counter in Sydney were friendly"
Cons: "Delayed departure and while I was rebooked for the possibly missed connections already in Sydney it was a premature decision as I would have made the connection in Vancouver. Food on a long flight is important - lousy meals and worst sandwich ever!"
Pros: "B777-300ER WAS A VERY COMFORTABLE NEWER AIRPLANE."
Cons: "CONNECTING AT THE TORONTO AIRPORT WAS SO LONG AND INCONVINIENT. I NEVER WANT TO FLY THROUGH TORONTO AGAIN"
Pros: "The staff was very professional and quite helpful. The flight was good. I would recommend it to everyone."
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: "I haven't been on an Air Canada flight that haven't been delayed at least 4 hours."
Pros: "Airplane features like the comfortable seating, leg room and window dimming capability. Head rest entertainment center and Flight Info graphics were great."
Cons: "Overall the crew seemed bored and tired with their job. On-board announcements sounded disinterested, and crew seemed tight and not overly pleasant."
Cons: "Food can be much better and entertainment options as well."
Cons: "Horrible to say the least"
Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"
Pros: "On time, nice crew, decent leg room"
Cons: "Nothing much to eat if you are vegan or vegetarian."
Cons: "Courteous staff"
Pros: "Great crew and service. Seats were comfortable for tall people."
Cons: "Delays for both international flights. Food made us sick."
Pros: "Good pilot. Take off and landing were very good. Clear announcements. plane was a comfortable temperature."
Cons: "Not organised on boarding procedures. Anyone could have gotten thro. Flight attendants wouldn't come by to pick up trash often enough. No movies or TV to watch on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "* Worst food I have ever had on a plane. The crew did not even know what was in some of the food, which is not comforting if you have allergies. * Entertainment system earphones were so bad they were unusable."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time Nice crew"
Pros: "Superb! Great flight, great food, great service! Will definitely fly Air Canada again!"
Cons: "No food. Beverage only."
Pros: "The staff offered a hotel and voucher for for 24hr delay but I was still unable to make up for lost travel time."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight to Dublin because the plane was delayed nearly three hours. I received a new ticket for 24hours after my oringial connecting flight. When I arrived in Dublin my baggage had been placed on the wrong flight."
Pros: "Flight was delayed three times, gate constantly changing too. Money even replaced croissants/pastries in the Vancouver business lounge with toast to save money; the only hot breakfast now at 9.30 is a vat of porridge."
Cons: "The plane itself was in good condition, and the crew were capable and pleasant. The in-air experience was much better than the on-the-ground experience."
