Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Ease of checking in, timely announcements and updates. Smooth ride"
Pros: "There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok."
Pros: "No wasted time, they load you up and get you where you want to be."
Cons: "Be sure to gate check anything larger than a small backpack or purse. There is little room on board for carry-on's"
Cons: "Delayed, missed connection"
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"
Cons: "Seriously? No free snacks? It's ridiculous that you want us to purchase snacks. Something small should be complimentary. Staff was in ok moods but a little edgy. The air was too cold."
Cons: "Half hr late"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Cordial service."
Cons: "Seemed understaffed to serve customers quickly on a short flight"
Pros: "The plane was obviously newer and in good condition. Entertainment options were good. Window dimmers were a cool touch."
Cons: "Service from the crew was generally bad. For a 5 hour flight, we were offered one drink. We had to sit with our pile of trash for 2.5 hours before they collected it. Crew was grumpy and unpleasant. My baggage was damaged."
Pros: "EVERY efficient boarding. The plane was almost an hour late to our gate, but we were done boarding only 15 minutes after the original takeoff time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Flight was scheduled to take off at 1210 pm, delayed to 1510, delayed again to 1700 then delayed to 2110 and hen finally boarded at 2230 but the flight did not take off for an additional 2 hours making the total flight delay 12+ hours. My mom did not speak English and the staff at the boarding gate would not provide her a translator nor where they willing to talk to us over the phone to assist her. I understand that delays happen but the lack of assistance and multiple delays was alarming (with clear weather). Air Canada device over the phone was unprofessional as well when I called to discuss the lack of assistance we received."
Pros: "Fast and friendly check-in, flight was on time, service on board was good, flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and empathetic. Was not their fault for the delay."
Cons: "First plane that was after a 4 hour layover broke down. Took over an additional 9 hours to get a new plane. And all we were given was a voucher for a discount on a Canada Air trip and headphones."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."
Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"
Pros: "The pilots were professional, got us there on time and did a wonderful smooth landing."
Cons: "The flights attendants uniforms were wrinkled and old, tired and worn out looking, their behaviour was the same. They were pretty much tired and disinterested in their job. Time to hire new blood, get new, fresh looking uniforms, and there definitely should be a weight limit, I have seen flight attendants who have to turn sideways to get down the aisle comfortably, what on earth would they do in an emergency. Yes size does matter. Look to JAP airlines for style and dignity in the job. Having said that I love Air Canada and fly it as often as possible home."
Cons: "See above. I didn't fly as I had scheduled."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."
Cons: "Everything costs extra: picking seats, pillows, blankets, no Economy Plus for Star Alliance elites, any food, etc."
Cons: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"
Pros: "Great fast flight"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated and not functional"
Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
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: "Very nice people, seats large enough"
Cons: "impossible to work on my computer, plug without enough power turn off automatically"
Pros: "Full flight operated professionally and politely. Good range of food and drink for purchase only."
Pros: "I enjoyed the efficiency and friendliness of the crew and the timliness of the flights themselves as well as the boarding process."
Cons: "First flight: My headphones didn't work with the entertainment system and the only other option to watch what was on the tv was to purchase headphones. Also, the movie skeleton was somewhat limited. Also, it was a longer flight but there was no free food option"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight needed canada transit visa and you guys dint even said me. Moreover when I contacted vayama as my bookings were proceeded by them even they dint helped me and then I had to cancel my ticket. I expect you to refund my money because of your fault I could not board the flight and had a horrible experience"
Cons: "As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result."
Pros: "Free TV."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Guy behind me was loud and kept kicking/pushing my seat."
Cons: "your app is useless because it didn't even notify me on the changes to my flight."
Cons: "The complimentary earphones provided on the flight were the worst ear buds I have ever worn and were extremely uncomfortable. If you're going to make it so passengers cannot use their own earphones without the sound being distorted, then please upgrade your earphones to something more comfortable. My ears were sore the whole flight trying to readjust the ear buds."
Pros: "We checked in late and therefore weren't able to get seats together. At the ticket counter, we asked to get put together and were able to get these seats."
Cons: "As with all coach seats, they were cramped."
Pros: "Friendly responsive flight attendants."
Cons: "Dinner not so great."
Cons: "They kept us in the airplane 3 hours before"
Cons: "At the Montreal Airport we needed to connect to our flight to Boston MA. Unfortunately the turn to get to the USA connections is not marked very clearly especially for the travel weary! Please ask them to put a up a brighter sign. Thanks!"
Pros: "Air Canada has decent movie/TV options — I like that they have interesting, older movies available (and it's all free)."
Cons: "If you're sitting near the front of economy, and you don't have elite status, be prepared to gate check. The plane they use on this flight (Airbus A320) has terribly-designed luggage compartments that hold about 2.5 bags over 2 rows of seats — not enough for every passenger. Passengers seated near the rear of the plane board first, so consider sitting farther back so you can find a spot for your carry-on suitcase."
Pros: "i got a whole row of seats to myself. so i sat side ways and put my legs up."
Cons: "was completely ignored by drink service. but they bothered to awaken me to get me to take off my headphones for takeoff, which was delayed by 15 minutes because something needed to be re-checked."
Pros: "Upgrade your seat and it makes a huge difference. Staff were very polite, service was great and leg room was fine as long as you upgrade."
Cons: "Another delay, minimal update. For older passengers this is difficult to understand whats being announced."
Pros: "My first name was misspelled by air Canada. This made me nervous. Air Canada rep refused to correct my first name on the boarding pass. My kayak itinerary had my name correct."
Pros: "Efficient, polite and I enjoyed the entertainment. I always prefer air Canada to domestic airlines."
Cons: "There was no notice given about my seat, but it was locked from reclining so I got squished when the person in front of me did recline. I should have asked to check if the person behind me had one of those anti reclining device clipped on my seat."
