Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Decent food on long-haul flight, and good entertainment."

Spent over 27 hours in airport before I finally began flying. WAS NOT COMPENSATED FOR MY HASSLE and lost money on hotels and lost wages."

Cons: "The 4 hour delay to leave Roatan"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was switched. Seats given away. Were placed on other flights arriving to our destination 7 hours after we were suppose to. Horrible experience. We didn’t travel through city we were suppose to. Worse flying experience in years. Our seats had been confirmed upon booking which apparently means nothing."

Pros: "Flight crew EXCEPCIONAL The lunch was delicious Service perfect"
Cons: "With over an hour in line to enter the International portion of the airport everyone was extremely stressed. Immigration personal were very snappy and rude (Not Avianca, Colombia). We had over an hour wait to get inside then it was a long run to get the the gate on time. The problems that Avianca is having with its flights, on time percentage and upset passengers is very Sad. Normally Avianca is the best airline in the American Zone! They need to fix their internal problems quickly or their bottom line will get punished."

Pros: "The seat was very spacious"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great crew, flight and, onboard service."

Pros: "Flat bed. New plane. Amenities such as a Tumi bag given out were good"
Cons: "We had seats in 6th row which was right behind the galley area where the flight attendants had their seats. One sat in left side of plane and one on right side. They talked talked talked to each other the entire flight. Not good. They we’re not next to each other so their voices were quite raised. This was th case on all our connecting flights"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I don’t even know how and where to start.. Avianca has given me issues in the past and I have decided a few more times to give them a chance. Avianca has a culture of rude and “take advantage of people” culture. I went through hell on my last flight. Left us on our connection flight in Cali, Colombia made us (15 passengers) wait for our bus we all had to pickup and carry our luggage’s out to the streets rcause they don’t have enough money to pay for a cart when we were actually in that situation because for them. Next day we were transported (they show up 2 hours later from the promised time) we were transported to the airport to actually catch a flight to another different city to then arrive wait 4 more hours to catch a plane to our final destination... a 3 hours and 45 minutes flight from Miami turned into a 4 different city, hotel and nightmare, luggage’s were broke and everybody turned out to be rude rude rude rude!!!!!!... I am still waiting for my $200 promised Boucher. This is my last time flying with AVIANCA. I am a frequent flyer and have made the decision to fly AA from now On... Actually just purchased a ticket which was actually $100 more than Avianca... nothing like great service and respect towards your clients... I’m also making sure NOBODY flys with AVIANCA."

Cons: "2 hours waiting at the check in with just two counters open fot most of the time. Poor English of the staff. A lot of people jumped the queue both at check in and while boatding. Total chaos and disorganization. Staff unhelpful, lax and passive."

Pros: "The price was much cheaper than other airlines so it was worth the hassle."
Cons: "Check-in at Lima was awful. The line was extremely long snaking back probably a few hundred feet. Stood in line for well over an hour. This resulted in a very rushed boarding process. Our breakfast tasted awful. I had called customer service ahead of time to check on luggage policies and everything they told me differed from what I actually experienced. The flight attendants were helpful though. Bags were handled fine."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. We were given an exit row so space was wonderful. Plane left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "great selection of movies...outstanding crew"
Cons: "Earphones were pretty bad, could hardly hear...good thing I had brought my own"

Pros: "We just spent the last 3 weeks in South America including Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos. We took a total of 9 flights with Avianca including a couple of 50-55 minute connections. Flights were consistently on time and service was great. Amazingly, our luggage made it too despite the short connections. Service was very good. The crew was pleasant and they were always serving drinks and food/ snacks even on short flights although food is usual coach fare. All in all a very positive experience. Most of the North American airlines could learn a thing or two regarding punctuality, service and baggage handling."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Staff in Santiago deliberately lied regarding status of connecting flight in Bogota. When I asked for clarification the supervisor was dismissive. No update on flight delay provided at gate. In flight entertainment for our row did not work on a 5 hour flight! Flight crew made no effort to compensate for the huge inconvenience."

Cons: "They overbooked the flight from Santiago to Bogota so I had to travel for 15 more hours."

Pros: "Clean and professional"
Cons: "Food was lacking."

Pros: "I would say the crew is nice and boarding process was easy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours in Santiago while on the runway due to technical difficulties. This caused my missed connection in Lima, therefore I had to wait from 10:45am to 5:30pm in Lima airport for a flight to Bogota, then after that catch another flight to Miami. I lost a whole day I had planned in Miami, arrived at 2:30AM when nobody could pick me up. Avianca didn't give me a voucher for food or transportation or even access to VIP lounges in Lima. I will never fly Avianca."

Pros: "Los empleados de.mostrador solucionaron rápidamente cada consulta y la tripulación fue muy simpática. El avión estaba en muy buenas condiciones y limpieza. Pude elegir el asiento en el checkin online lo que fue genial para.mi gusto. Una compañía que trabaja en simpatizar con sus clientes.

Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day.

Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."

Cons: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."

"The entertainment was a bit limited considering how long of a flight we had. The crew was excellent"

Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "The crew should be bilingual, not leaving an hour late and avoiding being the 6th plane to take off"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "They completely damaged my luggage bags, so much for paying to check in to have it returned broken, thorn and without wheels. I want a reimbursement for the ticket or the cost of 2 new suitcases."

Pros: "Friendly crew, good food."
Cons: "AC in the plane didn't work on the ground (during boarding and taking off). It had been extremely hot and sweaty before we took off. Cheap earphones provide very bad quality of sound. I barely could hear anything. I had to use my personal earphones."

Cons: "very cold on flight and no blankets"

Cons: "I traveled with my family from San Francisco to Brazil We were told that we should get the Yellow Fever vaccine even before we leave San Francisco. We called Copa and every time each of us talked to Copa we were given a different instruction. Very confusing and stressful. We decided not to get the vaccination, taking into consideration the cost of it, $159.00 for each family member!!!"

Pros: "Attendants were polite and helpful food was good"

Cons: "I bought a ticket economy plus but cops gave economy seat. I said several times that I purchase economy plus but cops ignored it. It is so bad and rude."

Pros: "Once I boarded the flight, everything was pretty standard. They had charging ports in the seats."
Cons: "Unlike other airlines like Delta or United, Copa doesn't ask people if they want to take a later flight for travel credit when a flight is over booked. They randomly select people who get pulled out of the boarding line, even though I already had an online boarding pass. They cite something in the fine print that says you can get kicked off a flight if you don't check in at the front desk with the gate attendants 90min. before the flight. Again, I already checked in and had a boarding pass on my phone. After getting kicked off, the service continued to be poor and they blamed those of us who got kicked off for being 'late.' All of us were there in the terminal well before boarding."

Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"

Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"

Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"

Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"

Cons: "The attitude from the crw"

Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"

Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"

Pros: "Crew was very experienced."

Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."

Pros: "Crew was personable and proactive in settling families in and helping with luggage. Funny and helpful. Movie choices were great! We were early to gate."
Cons: "It was a very long check in process in Madrid, and 45 minutes more to gate. I think it may just be layout of Madrid airport, but I would suggest to anyone getting to airport a minimum of 3.5 hours before flight."

Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."

Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."

Pros: "Quick takeoff and landing. Very smooth ride and friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Had a 630am flight. Did curb side checkin so always quick when I do do that. The security checkpoint had NO priority line so that was inefficient. Good otherwise."

Pros: "Taking the exit door makes a difference in having enough leg room. Everyone was nice an helpful."

Pros: "Great boarding, crew and seating space"
Cons: "Bathroom line for some reason was always long. Entertainment via wifi was just ok. Older movies only. New movies on the tiny screens that come down every 4 rows or so."

Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"

Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"

Cons: "Extremely old plane"

Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"

Cons: "No food no entertainment so that's the only reason I gave 1 star to those"

Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."

Cons: "Crew member had poor attitude. Not all just one seem to be having a bad day"

Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."

Pros: "Due to my missed connection, American booked me on the earliest flight to Dayton the next morning via United."
Cons: "The United flight's aircraft was cannibalized for another flight as our plane was only slightly more than 1/2 full. Our later aircraft were cannibalized twice more, until we finally got a spare aircraft after a two hour delay."

Pros: "TV movies"
Cons: "More popular movies"

Pros: "hilarious crew and they were very helpful"

Pros: "I liked the 2-3-2 seat configuration so my husband and I could sit in a 2 seat row without being crowded in with anyone else. Those seats are tight!"
Cons: "Everything could have been better. Boarding was terrible. Apparently the Air Canada devices did not work at this gate? Because boarding was so delayed, we lost our spot to depart. We were stuck on the tarmac for an hour. The seats were too crammed together and very uncomfortable for a 4+ hour flight. Food service did come through, but they were out of most things. It’s advertised you can buy a meal/snack/drink combo but the drinks did not come through at the same time and that was a mess. There didn’t seem to be any air vents above the seats so the flight was very stuffy. We will never fly Rouge again."

Pros: "My flight was canceled"

Cons: "Food could be improved by improving preperation"

Cons: "Toilets were dirty and not enough toilet papers"

Pros: "Tre crew was fantastic"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waited on aircraft for over one hour after boarding Flight attendants did not provide any updates or compensation for passengers sitting and waiting See tweets from other passengers on aircanada who experienced the same confusion, lack of updates, inattentive staff, pilot made very few updates and did not instruct flight attendants to do anything to make situation easier Delayed over an hour after we were told flight would be departing Offered pretzels Bathrooms were not cleaned after previous flight (garbages over flowing, stench, water everywhere) No air conditioning in flight Did not turn on wifi for the flight Will be filing a formal complaint and requesting a refund."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and did a good job."
Cons: "The entertainment on this flight was non-existent unless you paid extra for the iPads or internet. There were no tv screens on the back of the seats, which was not very pleasant for a 9 hour flight. We tried connecting to the plane's wifi and watching movies on our phones through the Air Canada app, but the wifi was so slow that the movies never even loaded. Additionally, not every row of seats on the sides has a window, and we were in a row that had a wall instead. The plug in our row did not work either so we couldn't charge our phones with it."

Pros: "Every thing expert the food"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Service was impeccable. In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was nothing special"

Pros: "This was my first time flying Air Canada. Our flight was delayed by 4 hours because they had to deice the plane. Yes it was frustrating but I would much rather have a flight of upset passengers then risking our lives. The captains and the crew went out of their way to make sure that we were the most comfortable. They gave us food and drinks as we waited and were extremely patient. Upon arrival many passengers had missed their connecting flights, including myself. They put us on the next flight out and gave all passengers a hotel and meals for the night. I would definitely recommend Air Canada. The plane itself is also pretty spacious so don’t be afraid to fly economy."
Cons: "Nothing really. They were great. I mean, definitely wished my flight wasn’t delayed. Although It wasn’t their fault that they needed to deice the plane, that’s something that should’ve been accounted for way before our flight was supposed to take off."

Pros: "Vegetarian food needs lots of improvement"

Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."

Pros: "I am 6ft 1 / 185cm and the leg room was OK for an economy flight. Food was OK for airplane food. Staff were very friendly. Overall very happy."

Cons: "Ran out of food.."

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: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"

Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online and therefore wasn’t able to update with my dietary requirements which meant I couldn’t really eat anything that was given. I was told at the airport that it needs to be submitted 24 hrs before the flight and there was nothing they could do. Really unfair and not on."

Pros: "Seat selection."
Cons: "The meals didn't taste that great."

Pros: "Well designed comfortable sleeping Pods"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "no entertainment"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"

Pros: "Ease of boarding - no long queues. Offer to put hand luggage in the hold with no charge."

Pros: "It was average"
Cons: "My connections were tight from the start. Then when the flight from Vancouver was late leaving, it caused me to come very, very close to missing my CVG connection. I had to find & clear customs before I could even go to my gate. Getting thru customs was like being in a maze. I showed my passport 4 times in the process & finally someone helped me to fill out the electronic form. I made it to my gate in the nick of time just as they were ready to close the door. They radioed ahead to let 2 more people on that plane. Then I get on and someone is sitting in the seat that I previously purchased. The flight attendant didn't make them move either. Air Canada's practices suck! I will never fly Air Canada again."

Pros: "Friendly crew, modern aircraft"

Cons: "Extreme delays on my return flight which made me miss my connection and get rebooked on another flight for the next day. We were delayed on departure, then on the tarmac, then in the air, and finally when getting off the plane. I am glad that I was rebooked and was given a hotel to stay at, but I did not like the way I was treated by Air Canada staff at customs. I passed through customs only to be sent back into Canada after having crossed through security because the staff decided to close. We were told by other staff members that it was up to them to decide when they were done and to talk them. I ran through the whole airport with about 7 other people to make it. Why make us cross through security only to send us back? There was no one there to guide us on what to do. I had to go through the whole thing again the following day only to have my face cream taken away (it is technically cream, not a liquid) and then be detained. None of this happened AT ALL the day before. I'd give more details but it was a complete mess."

Pros: "Pretty standard flight...nice crew, free drink, left and arrived on time for the most part. Liked that I could check in early to arrange a seat."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable. Had a couple knees in my back."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't travel with children, but if I had done they would have needed entertaining. The crew offered iPads (to rent) for the entertainment of children and adults alike. Why can these not just be given to passengers, better still BRING BACK SCREENS IN SEATBACKS!!!"

Pros: "Very comfortable and clean aircraft. Friendly crew. Seats at the front of Economy had excellent legroom. Helpful flight announcements from the captain."
Cons: "Air Canada has only one gate at Houston, which appears to be in constant use, at least in the early afternoon. If one flight is delayed in departure, it causes a backup with other flights."

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."

Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."

Pros: "Espaço para as pernas na classe econômica foi suficiente para mim, a tripulação foi cordial, o avião era novo à parte de entretenimento foi boa."
Cons: "Quando embarcamos, quase todos os espaços para as malas já estavam ocupados, o espaço lateral das poltronas era muito apertado, a reclinação era péssima, praticamente inexistente. Quando decolamos, começou a cair água na nossa cabeça. O funcionário responsável disse que era do ar condicionado e era normal. A comida era ruim, sem gosto e com acompanhamentos que não combinavam, por exemplo no meu caso era frango com uma salada de vagens e pepino. Fora o horário das refeições, quase não era oferecido bebidas em um voo de 10 horas."

Cons: "Delayed for more than two hours on both the trips to and from Canada. This is a common thing with Air Canada i heard. Flights always get delayed."

Cons: "Very rude air crew who treats you as a bus passenger, does not completely listen to your requests, on business class. I also had my return connection flight cancelled and moved 6 hours ahead of the original one, which made me just wait that long at the airport."

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: "Poor airline, always delayed, dreadful and unfriendly customer service. The only reason I flew with them this short trip was due to price"

Cons: "A three and a half hour flight with a fruit juice and not even a pack of peanuts . Air Canada that was pathetic !"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada pricing is same as other non budget airlines like British airways, Lufthansa but service is on par with budget airlines like Ryan Air. I'm amazed how they get away with it."

Pros: "Planes were clean, relatively comfortable & flight attendants were polite. Flights that had individual screens on the seatbacks offered good movie choices."
Cons: "Ugh. Delays of 1-2hrs each on 3 of 4 flights for one trip. Missed connecting flight in Toronto. Baggage was a disaster. No communication between staff, was told something different by each person I spoke with. Flew to London & didn't get my bag for 3 days. Flight delays put me in to London a day late, wearing same clothes without access to my bag & lost 4 more hours of site-seeing time following day calling the airline & trying to meet up with courier delivering my bag. Then on my 7hr midday flight back to the states our plane had no screens at all for in flight entertainment. Security and Customs check process was ridiculously long. Waiting in line after line, and the automated kiosks processing passports were fickle delaying lines & leading to further follow up by staff. Very confusing and overheard several passengers talking about missing connecting flights. I highly recommend not flying Air Canada until they become more organized."

Pros: "Crew and Confort"

Pros: "Had a great conversation wih a guy from Switzerland an it really helped to pass the time."
Cons: "I didn't like that they either started boarding too early or we waited a long time to get off the runway as it seemed we were on the plane a long time before we actually left. Also we just received our snack and our drink and as soon as we received them, a stewardess told us to all put our tables up and I do believe that it was because we were descending to land. It seemed like forever before we received our snack and then we're told we couldn't use our tables. I think they should have started the snacks earlier as it was quite a big plane and it probably would take quite a long time to serve everyone and the worst part of it all was that I had asked for a can of pop, so I had to hold my can of pop, my glass pop and try to get my snack out of the package which was not easy at all."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"

Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."

Pros: "Flight was delayed several hours with no compensation given"

Pros: "They surprisingly didn't lose our bags...on this flight."
Cons: "Where to start?! Air Canada is by far the worst airline I have ever flown on. initially there was no information on what gate we were supposed to go to. The timeline of when the gate was going to be told ended up being 45 minutes later than initially projected which turned out to be an hour before the flight was supposed to take off, which didn't leave much time to make it through passport control and to the correct gate. The flight was then delayed over an hour before we were able to board. Once we boarded the flight, we were delayed again an additional hour. We finally took off and landed in Toronto to be delayed yet again before we could go to our gate. Once we go to our gate (close to 30 minutes after landing) the gate would not work and we were stuck on the plan an additional 30 minutes. What was supposed to be about a 9 hour flight turned into almost 12 hours of misery. I will never fly air canada again. The best part about air canada is how every canadian I talked to say "oh yeah, they are such a "terrible" or "shitty" airline."

Cons: "The departure time for the flight was 6:00am and there was no one in the check in counter until 4:15am. There was a long queue for the check in. Not a pleasant waiting time for the check in"

Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew. Good food. Smooth flight."
Cons: "No seatback screens. Hire charge for iPads to access entertainment. Can use own iPad but need Air Canada app to make full use of entertainment (which would have been useful information to communicate BEFORE the flight, since there is no way to download app once on board!)."

Cons: "My daughter got destroyed by a cup of coffee a passenger behind her was holding when turbulence struck quiet bad,neither he or the airline apologizes for either."

Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
