Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was very professional but no explanation of why it took out 30+ mins overtime to depart nor why we were held from landing another 30+ mins."
Pros: "The crew and pilots were great"
Cons: "Dinner was just okay"
Pros: "The comfort in side the plane and quiet drive"
Cons: "The 5 hours waiting time at the Toronto airport. It really was hard to endure."
Cons: "Again very disappointed. No food, no flight monitoring and no tv access. Felt very "cheep". Cop o see idea far far better."
Pros: "Crew was great! Seats small and terrible !"
Cons: "Flight was about 2 hours late, little food supplied to flight"
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "I was able to change my flight to an earlier one saving me from having to wait 6 hours. I did not have to pay extra for changing my flight."
Cons: "In-seat entertainment - screen not working"
Pros: "I watched incendies and lion and both were great films so I commend your film options. The crew were all pleasant and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "The chairs have no low back support. I rolled up my sweater and put it behind my low back because the chair is so poorly designed. It seems to encourage a slouched position. maybe you have it that was to encourage people to upgrade their tickets. I hope that's not the case as that would be cruel."
Cons: "Luggage didn't make it and it took 4 days (out of a 5 day holiday) to get it to me :-("
Pros: "This particular flight on this particular aircraft (July 15, 2017) was fine but the business class cabin of the plane itself is looking tired and out of date, especially when compared to the new pods on Air Canada's wonderful 787 DreamLiner aircraft. Customers will gladly pay for a consistently high level of service but that service should be consistent across the fleet."
Pros: "Love, love, love flying on a Dash-8. Perfect size plane provides flying without all the hassles. From check-in to baggage pick-up, our flight was perfect. Thank you Air Canada for an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "There was one announcement about preboarding and none after that -- only one announcement about delay of 20 minutes but we were more than an Hour late boarding. That was 1st impression. Then, when we got on the plane, it was very old so made me worry about safety."
Cons: "they should give a warning about downloading an entertainment app before an almost 5 hour flight. made no sense that our 1 and half hour flight had built in entertainment and the longer flight required an app"
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked to Wednesday."
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked on Wednesday. I could walk faster."
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and Air Canada staff was great. The food was okay but not as impressive as other international flights we've taken."
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: "Affordable fares"
Cons: "They ran out of the food, and many people were left with no choice for dinner. Food was just okay. Crews weren't very helpful when boarding. It was hard to find a spot for my carry on luggage. I waited for someone to come over and help me find the spot, but no luck."
Pros: "Flight timings were perfect for my schedule. Boarding and departure were timely as well."
Pros: "Great cabin crew - really friendly and helpful to passengers. Good selection of drinks. AMS-YYZ-YQG All nice enough - good leg room and nice to have a 2-4-2 seating configuration YQG-YYZ-LHR Nice to be on a 787."
Cons: "Food was bland, but as expected on a transatlantic route. Good selection of drinks. One of the suitcases missed the flight, but was promptly delivered the following day. It would have been nice if this could have been notified earlier, rather than having to wait for all passenger's luggage to be delivered before realising that our's was not there."
Pros: "waiting on the plane for hours after we arrived to LA wasn't to great. Also it was frustrating to watch the plane get delayed over and over again, the food wasn't too good, the seats felt like cardboard and it was too packed in the plane...but other then that, it was spectacular"
Cons: "it was an international flight, they should offer/include something to eat."
Pros: "Food was good and flight attendants were very professional. Our first time flying Air Canada and I was very impressed!"
Cons: "To pay so much for a transatlantic flight and have to pay $10 for an IPad on the 8 hour trip home??? It would be nice if even limited internet was included so we could use our own device. The worse experience was getting through customs at the airport in Barcelona on the way home. Only two agents available to stamp passports on a Sunday morning when the world's largest cruise ship (Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas) had docked earlier that morning? We arrived at the airport at 8:30 and no Air Canada agents were available to check us in until 9:00. After waiting to get through customs and we proceeded to our gate, our 11:45 flight was just beginning to load! Lots of shoving and people cutting line to avoid being late for their flight. I heard one person mention they had missed their flight, and I'm certain many others did as well. With the chaos and delay, I'm surprised altercations didn't happen. The airports/airlines need to work with the local authorities to avoid these delays and provide their customers better service."
Cons: "The check in counter was a mess. Though we had checked in online, it still took forever to check in at the counter as the machines could not print out the bag tags, then there was another line up for dropping off the bags. Those machines also could not read foreign passports though Canadian ones were fine. So we had to wait for our friends who were from overseas. The stewardess doing the announcements went so fast you could not hear her except for a few words, and she had a very strong French accent so it sounded like she was speaking in French all the time. But at least she was better than the pilot, whom we could not hear at all. The only word we heard was "cloudy"."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down and for a 5-hour flight after a previous 11-hour flight, that was quite a disappointment. No food was offered."
Pros: "The boarding process at Gatwick was seamless! So wonderful"
Cons: "The plane was cramped and provided absolutely nothing by way of entertainment. We traveled Europe so we packed light - no iPads or computers. There were no TVs on the planes (unless you wanted to pay $10 to borrow an iPad). I refuse when the flight itself was $500! This left us to do nothing for 8.5 hours. Not my idea of fun."
Cons: "When boarding the plane in Rome, there was not rhyme or reason. Seats towards the back should have been urged to use the back stairs. Two way traffic down the aisle of a plane does not work with suitcases, backpacks, etc, in tow."
Pros: "It's been a long time since I flew Air Canada . Great flight, blanket and pillow provided - seats, movies and and a lot of snacks. Worth the money for a long flight :)"
Cons: "Seat pitch is non existent, so are free food or drink options. Very uncomfortable seats, glad my flight was only 2.5 hours. Avoid this airline...go Westjet instead."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Safety belt actually fit around my waist - I am a bigger person"
Cons: "I was on isle staff kept on bumping into me (not purposely) They need to take time to ensure they are not bumping clients"
Pros: "The food was airline food, the movies worked"
Cons: "Given customs form in German, when asked for English flight attendant said they were out. asked another later and she brought it immediately. After herded through security (again) and customs, with no explanation on what to expect, our connecting flight's gate was in the basement. It looked like a third world bus station. No place to sit, totally packed, could not understand announcements, only bagel place to eat that was out of most everything. I will avoid Air Canada and Toronto airport if at all possible."
Pros: "It was an average flight."
Cons: "The food was terrible! The alcohol wasn't free for my international flight. The crew was a little snobby and unkind."
Pros: "In seat entertainment console with recent movies. Only food for purchase."
Pros: "Ok so I download the app and horrible content. Not alot of options and then you have to rent an iPad? They should b giving.those.out free"
Cons: "For the price, the length and the fact that it was an international flight. I would have expected not to be required to paid for luggage and to have some food been provided to us. In particular, after the return flight was delayed considerably due to airplane issues."
Cons: "No leg room, no tv's and no chargers."
Pros: "- At Rome FCO, one of the Air Canada representatives pulled out of the line to get us into the business class check-in line since we had 2 kids - we totally loved this focus on families and respect the attention to detail! - The flight from FCO to YYZ was awesome! great food, great service, constant flow of drinks and the dessert was awesome! my kids are picky eaters and even they enjoyed the food - Movie and entertainment selection was awesome - Lastly, appreciated the prompt service for getting child stroller at the door of the aircraft at all times (from FCO-YYZ-PDX)"
Cons: "- The new designed aircraft are meant to pack more passengers which means the aisle for rolling the trolley is very narrow - poor flight attendants were having a challenge and bumping trolley into seats (not their fault at all) - given likelihood of injuries and lawsuits, I highly recommend AIR CANADA management to do something about this narrow aisle before it is too late (i.e. major lawsuit filed by future passenger on account of injury sustained because of getting hurt by food trolley)"
Pros: "I liked my seat in the back, the crew, the movies, and the food."
Cons: "The two different technical issues they had that made us leave almost two hours late and caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Food was really good and they passed drinks a few times as well as walking through with water. Staff was friendly"
Pros: "Liked the smile in the faces of the crew as they served the snacks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Cons: "My biggest complaint regarding air Canada is the poor service and indifference typically exhibited by their service staff."
Cons: "Cramped very crowded plane."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and helpful. Montreal is a very manageable airport. Staff there was also courteous and efficient. Food was very good for airline fare. Renting an IPad for $10 to watch movies in-flight was a reasonable option for distraction on a 9 hour flight. We were quite pleased with Air Canada and will not hesitate to book with them again."
Pros: "Entertainment choices on this flight/with this plane were endless, and you didn't have to pay extra for them like you do with Condor, for instance. The seats were relatively comfortable, in comparison to the way you are packed into some planes these days. Particularly liked the headrests that were adjustable side to side. It helped in this particular case the flight wasn't completely full, and so I had the seat next to me free."
