KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to Canada.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to Canada is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to Canada with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to Canada up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.

Cons: "Free food"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian options. Staff slightly inattentive and rushed when dealing with clients."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "This was the second leg of flight from Gatwick, short stay at St Lucia, only a short flight, didn't leave the plane there so boarding and food comments don't really apply to this flight. Crew changed over here - new crew as good as first leg, excellent, never had problems with this on BA."
Cons: "Entertainment poor, limited choice and mediocre screens. Is the Boeing 777 fleet due a refurb? If so, don't spoil the seats and legroom, but do update the in-flight entertainment system!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "It is ridiculous to have elderly passengers made to carry heavy luggage up and down multiple steep stairways. This happened in Dublin, Edinburgh and of all places, Heathrow was the worst. There is no excuse not to have level walkways and Entrances to these large planes. Totally unacceptable given the prices we pay to travel."
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "Flight being changed three times and delayed multiple times. Not weather related. To top it off, the airline decides to leave my bag in the states because the flight was changed and I didn’t notify them; which of course is ignorant because they changed the flight and didn’t even notify me."
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."
Pros: "The way the crew interacts with passengers one has the feeing that we were all one big family! Special hats off to Freedy who worked on this flight on my way to Canada and was very interactive with us , he made us felt really welcoming , as long as he has to give us his service , Staff keep up the good work. All of you did a fantastic job . Pilot did a great job a few pot holes that was out of his control but all in all a great flight"
Pros: "It was an uneventful flight."
Cons: "My seat didn’t seem to go back as much as the seat next to me. That made sleeping a bit harder."
Cons: "Check in was slow. There was a long line, only 3 counters were open and then one person behind one counter chose to chit chat with a co-workerwho stopped by for about 10 minutes unmindful of the people lined up and waiting to check in."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to a thunderstorm, something out of the control of BA or LHR Airport, but the crew never seized to deliver a superior service with a warm smile on their face even when the heat was unbearable coz the AC wasn’t working. The captain frequently gave us updates and even walked around the plane to answer our questions! Superior customer service..."
Cons: "My biggest complaint was that there was no AC while we were stuck for almost one hour on plane! BA should ensure that their planes are properly prepared for similar situations"
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked even though we booked the flight 2 months ahead of time"
Pros: "Got Home day later , slept on airport floor. Meal was poor , no more vegetarian food left . Wrap was given with chicken & maynosie where as Asian / Hindu veg meal was ordered ."
Cons: "Same as above ."
Pros: "I was a good trip, except for one thing."
Cons: "I was very upset when travelling from Mumbai to London, Heathrow, because the crew in Mumbai did not send my baggage directly to Toronto and I had to go through the whole process of checking in Montreal to travel to Toronto, which was my last destination."
Pros: "Economy plus was great. Economy was a little rough for me as seating was much less comfortable"
Pros: "Flight wasn’t full so it was great to be able to stretch out!"
Cons: "One older cabin female attendant was quite arrogant - otherwise all good!"
Cons: "After an 11 hours wait to connect my flight, they still managed to leave one of my bags behind. Not cool"
Pros: "generally clean, good crew"
Pros: "Not much to say about this. Really the experience was not so good and I think the only good thing to say is that their planes still work."
Cons: "First they they over sold the flight and as we had our previous flight delayed they didn't allow us to cross the gates as they said we couldn't make it on time rather than telling us the truth. The staff didn't do anything to help us to catch the flight and insisted in putting us on the next flight. Thankfully I noticed that the flight was delayed and I crossed the gates despite that the staff didn't want us to do it. Once in the plane, the flight entertainment was poor, didn't work and staff said it was too busy to help us out in putting our stuff on the overhead compartment or even giving us the beer we wanted despite having our choice In front of us."
Cons: "Don't you even know that correspondences were missed?"
Cons: "Three hours late."
Pros: "The craft, the crew, the food was excellent"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Staff (cabin crew Tony, in particular). Hand luggage allowance. Finally, food and water on a BA flight (unlike connecting EDI to LHR flight)."
Cons: "Method of boarding, with a mass of economy passengers boarding st once at the end. I NEVER get my preferred seat (= window), and object to being charged extra to select a seat (unlike other airlines I use more frequently nowadays). Crowded economy section, with little legroom, passengers squashing bags at feet, etc."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Many lengthy transfers at Heathrow. Exhausting."
Pros: "Was able to get a bulkhead seat. Wheelchair staff were very efficient at LHR and TPA. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The there was not a legroom class (or bulkhead seat)that could be pre-specified. I do not really care about other extras extras for premium economy. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front."
Pros: "The food was good and enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We had to buy coffee, water, or anything other non-alcohol beverage we wanted to drink. Not sure why on one flight we didn't get free beverage service when all of the other BA flights provided it. When we got to London, we purchased drinks at the airport because we wanted to be prepared for our next flight and then we didn't need it because we had free beverage service."
Pros: "The crew and assistants were excelent"
Pros: "There really wasn't much to like for yet another terrible BS flight situation."
Cons: "Late boarding. Taxied out. Held is on runway for 2 hrs and taxied back in. Made us wait in terminal for 3 hours before boarding a seprrste plane. Arrived in nyc 130am instead of 8pm. No apologies from ba. As usual."
Pros: "Easy online Check in. Nice crew."
Cons: "Very tight space on flights."
Pros: "easy boarding, land at T5 which is a very well designed terminal"
Cons: "check is was horrendous. Long queues of people, long wait and not enough people to man the check in counters. Sitting down in my seat my kneeds immediately banged on the seat in front of me. Its clear that this aircraft has less leg space that then usual. And now you have to pay for all food and drink. £9 for a sandwich and G&T."

Cons: "I was hungry but there was nothing to eat"
Cons: "It was difficult to get our seat assignments."

Cons: "Flight was late and I missed my connection."

Cons: "I felt the plane was not very comfortable for a 5 1/2hr flight. I will not fly this plane never on transatlantic it just not cozy like big airbus or b777. Air Canada should invest in big planes if it want to cash out on the passengers connecting their pacific flights."

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The process was ridiculous to get booked for a flight that morrow and get to hotel"
Cons: "I was unable to board that flight since I did not have transit visa for Canada and no where it was mentioned anywhere on Kayak's website. Nor on confirmation email as well. I was not aware of the same despite having travelled to states couple of times in the past. I had to purchase ticket from another carrier at the last moment on the airport."
Cons: "my flight was late leaving midland and therefore I missed my flight from houston to toronto NO one at the Houston United airport counters would help me I stood in line at customer service for an hour and a half just so they could tell me to go see some one at the Air Canada to confirm my rebook and that my flight was delayed an hour anyway and I probably could have made it!!"
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."

Pros: "This flight was so much better than my nice to Montreal flight. It seems like nicer planes should be used for international flights."

Pros: "the crew were very friendly and helpful. the onboard entertainment was great. The food was good."

Cons: "Couldn't watch movies unless on iPhone"
Cons: "Waiting for an hour on Tarmac upon arrival in LA"
Cons: "1h15 late"
Cons: "The crew was fine but not overly friendly or helpful. They got the job done. I know that your coach seats are fairly standard in the industry. I just find the leg room to be too tight for a long distance flight."
Cons: "Flight and hospitality"
Pros: "One Time. A very polite staff!"
Cons: "Finding an overhead luggage compartment was difficult. Some peoples luggage is over sized, and some stow two items."

Pros: "The we flight itself was fine. 787, good selection of onboard entertainment. Seats were a bit cramped but not too bad."
Cons: "Hour and a half late arriving. New flight plan, more fuel."
Cons: "The flight attendants were inconsiderate of the wishes and comfort of the passengers. Food and drink were offered for sale in tourist class shortly after takeoff in the morning. Since I had just had breakfast, I asked if the food and drinks would be available later. The answer was probably not, which indeed was the case. This was on a five hour flight. When I did want food and drink, I had to go to the attendant at the back of the plane. I was able to have a drink delivered to purchase a drink, but the one food item I wanted was not in stock. (This was from the beginning, and was also the case on the outgoing flight a week earlier. I was informed that I could not use my noise cancelling headphones, designed and purchased largely for flying during takeoff and landing, but had to use ear buds, which I did not have, do not like, and as a senior with hearing aids find uncomfortable. Thus, I missed the benefit of their noise cancelling feature and much of the movie I was enjoying. On the earlier flight, one of the two toilets was unavailable, causing long waits, but the attendant in the front of the plane refused to allow me to use that toilet, which was available. When I protested, she answered the same way perpetrators of crimes against humanity did "I am just following orders." Where is the concern for the humanity of a senior citizen? Also the previous flight connections was scheduled too closely so that with security and border clearance, I was barely able to board at the last minute, thus causing a great deal of stress, no time to ear or use the toilet at the terminal, once again unhealthy stress and discomfort, no concern for the humanity of the passenger."
Pros: "Business class compartments. Excellent by all standards"
Pros: "Wheelchair service arrived very late yet the flight attendants and the Captain remained with me until the wheelchair arrived. Outstanding attention and care for passengers."
Cons: "Rouge was the problem here. Unlike regular Air Canada flights, the seats are extra cramped and there are no seat-back TVs or power outlets. (Also, the crew didn't seem to include any French speakers - weird for Air Canada.) I preferenced AC for this flight. Next time I would avoid them if it's Rouge."
Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."
Pros: "At least there was food tho only banana bread for breakfast"
Cons: "No movies or entertainment for overnight flight"
Pros: "Quick flight, well-done!"
Cons: "Poor food choice and quality , comfort of seats"
Cons: "Had requested assistance for my mother and air canada passed the buck putting the responsibility to the airport when in fact it should be the carriers responsibility to make arrangements with the airport staff to provide the assistance between gates for seniors with mobility issues at both the Pearson and Tampa airports. Very disheartening how they treat seniors and vets"
Pros: "Service, Food"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment console(having to pay for ipad) ,small and tight seating for long flight."

Pros: "Crew was good. Food was ok."
Cons: "Athens check and security processes caused huge delays resulting in our missing our connection in Toronto and having to spend the night. NONE of the entertainment systems worked on the flight. We were rebooked without an opportunity to make our original flight which was possible. Agent also unkind"
Cons: "The plane was old and tired. The seats are just a step up from a park bench. There was virtually no entertainment system to speak of."

Pros: "It’s ok. The airplane is not comfortable. It’s old and small"
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "United 737-800 seats are cramped. The flight was severely delayed due to weather, and United did not do well in communicating that well. We had to wait 38 minutes after arriving in Toronto for baggage to start arriving in the baggage hall. United did not provide customs cards prior to arrival."
Cons: "We were delayed not once, not twice, but 3 times. Changed our gate 3 times. They changed planes twice. Then, only one agent at the gate to do everything!! I will not fly United again unless I have to!!"

Cons: "Late departure. Poor food sale selection"
Pros: "The flight captain made up the total time that the flight was delayed, good take off & good landing, got us to Toronto on time. Thanks."

Cons: "The flight leaving Houston was delayed by over an hour due to some problems finding another captain for the flight thus extending the layover time by at least four hours. As a result I didn't get back to Toronto until around 12:30 in the morning. Otherwise everything else was fine."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and very helpful and kind. The flight was delayed but the crew was positive and boarding was very fast and efficient."

Pros: "Even though we boarded late, things moved along and we got out just a few minutes late."

Pros: "I like the entertainment screen"
Cons: "The mini pretzel.,,"
Cons: "Flight delayed until 8pm then sat on the plane in Toronto for 45 minutes waiting for a gate and because we were sent to a parking area with numerous other planes and ended up getting boxed in and couldn’t get to our gate earlier.

Pros: "Attendants were friendly"
Cons: "They could not find our flight in their system which was very nerve wracking."
Pros: "Great service and fed well!!"
