Pros: "They had very bad service for 5 hours flight I asked two times I need a coffee but they didn’t give it for me and on that time I saw they serviced for two another guys just they said to me “we come back to you” but unfortunately they didn’t come back. No facilities for calling the crew. I am very angry for my flight Toronto to Vancouver specially the bad crews."
Cons: "See and train the crew and look for your services for 5 hours flight."
Cons: "Food could be improved by improving preperation"
Pros: "The food was very good."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the plane could be better, on the flights back from Venice to Minneapolis there were no personal screens for each seat. Instead you had to have a phone. Also, there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "Crew amazing"
Cons: "Nothing to do with the airline - a bit rough"
Pros: "Crew were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. Great entertainment system."
Cons: "The food is terrible, overcooked watery beefless beef dishes. Better ti brng your own food."
Pros: "Flight was great. Check in not so."
Cons: "On March 18, 2018 Joanne, Kevin, and Allison Sheridan were booked to go from SYD to YYJ and only Kevin took off. We went to the airport and my daughter Allison was too anxious to get on as she had to leave her father behind. After she calmed down we went to get on the flight and the lady at the check in, (Onwsha) said it was too late and we could leave the next day. She changed my tickets on the computer and said if we came on Monday, March 19th there wouldn't be a charge but if it was any other date it would be $150.00 per ticket/person. When I arrived to check in on March 19th I was charged the $300. I spoke to Sharon Smith who was with Air Canada Customer Service Coordinator and I explained I was told something different by the customer agent. I told her if I knew that and I was told by Onwsha I would have went on the flight on March 18th but would not have checked the bags and just taken carry on luggage as my husband was still at the airport and he could bring them when he came over. Sharon Smith said there was nothing she could do and we had to pay the $300.00. It really has left a bad taste for me with Air Canada especially how many seats were spare and I was told something different from Onwsha. Thank you for your time. If any other details are needed feel free to contact me."
Pros: "Horrible experience"
Cons: "Cancelled flight couldn't get another one through them until 2 days later."
Cons: "Late 1.5 hrs both ways Should announce if connecting flights are being held"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding procedure was quite confusing with one agent giving verbal instruction but intercom instruction was contradictory. The entertainment for a long haul flight was a bit disappointing, compared to Air New Zealand it is definitely lacking. The comfort was subpar as well with seats lacking adequate cushion. Needing to repeat everything in French!!"
Pros: "Luckily had an empty seat next to me. Good tv and movies to watch"
Cons: "Crew wasn't super friendly, missed 2 meals because we were asleep, time between food and drink offerings too long"
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 had this awesome trip to Oz planned via Air Canada, but it crashed and burned ( not literally) due to a legal matter. Liam was very helpful with cancelling the flight and assured me that I have no worries booking another with a bothersome penalty."
Cons: "Liam was down to earth and helpful"
Pros: "The flight crew went the extra mile to give good service. There were plenty of meals and snacks throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms are cramped, they are clean however. Seats are also very close together, others must get out if you are in a middle or window seat."
Pros: "The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "I wish they had pjs."
Pros: "The crew was friendly & nice. The flight went pretty smooth. I thought movie choices were good. There was a good mix of newer movies & older classics."
Cons: "Food was disappointing even for a plane food. Not very tasty. Airlines should switch to using compostable cups & silverware. Each flight uses so many plastic cups! I hope they get recycled but it’d be better to go an extra step & switch to compostable cups & silver to reduce the waste."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class."
Pros: "Able to get onto this earlier flight rather than waiting an additional 4 hours in the Toronto airport."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and cramped. Volume on the intercom system was extremely loud (startlingly so) and crew speak so quickly it was still difficult to catch. He actually sounded more like a Scottish auctioneer. The flight couldn't arrive soon enough."
Pros: "Helpfullness of Air Canada staff."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "We enjoyed our flight. The flight attendants were efficient. Jeanie was the nicest one of all."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rather rotund and, as I had an aisle seat, she frequently bumped my arm as she passed by. Not once during the flight from Sydney to Vancouver did she apologize. Otherwise, other aspects of the flight were fine. Air Canada is my number one choice of the airlines when traveling to Australia."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The movies, and the snacks!"
Cons: "There was 2 passport controls, and the plane was late ; therefore, we had to wait 6 hours for our next flight. Knowing that we had another flight to catch - why couldn't they have held up the one going to Seattle? Originally, it was 5 hours for the next flight, but, that flight was delayed. NEVER will we fly through Canada again. Honestly, we can drive from Vancouver to Seattle in 3.5 hours!"
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Cons: "There was a build-up of delays for domestic flights, namely from Toronto to Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary (the ones I heard). I was on the Toronto to Calgary flight, which was supposedly delayed from 16:45 till 18:55 EST, but the actual boarding time was closer to 19:45 EST. Once all the passengers were boarded, the crew informed us that the pilot was missing. Another 20 minutes went by before he was located, at which point we were informed that the first mate was missing as well. By the time the pilot and first mate were both on the aircraft, it took another 30 minutes for them to get the aircraft ready. My flight from Toronto to Calgary was supposed to arrive at 19:40 MDT, the actual arrival time was 23:00 MDT. As a passenger, I am annoyed to say the least."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and organized. Checking process was fast."
Cons: "Seat was a little to tight for a long flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."
Cons: "Will never fly air canada again. Missed connection and the staff does not care to accommodate for a flight to my are on another airline."
Pros: "I liked the atmosphere and organization but lack of good food and drinks is frustrating"
Cons: "1 free checked bag and I small free meal"
Cons: "Poor entertainment selection for such a long flight. Very little food for Sydney/ Vancouver leg and I am small eater."
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: "The ice cream and the one woman in customer service that actually seemed to care."
Cons: "My husband and I were flying to Italy, on the first leg of our flight neither of our screens worked so we had six hours with no entertainment. They gave us a card to make it up to us but (wisely) don't tell you what it is for. It turned out to be for 10% off your next flight if you book it through their website within a year. Useless. On our return flight we were delayed on the tarmac for over an hour with no air conditioning, they originally said they were waiting for a signature but then said that there was something wrong with the engines that help us take off, then the cabin filled with a fuel smell, then they said they had brought the wrong item for the repair and we were waiting for the correct one. When we finally took off my husband's screen didn't work yet again and this was a 9 hour flight. The flight attendant said that some of the screens hadn't worked for a while ( probably cheaper to hand out useless discounts than to fix them.). We received another 10% off card, which we cannot combine or transfer, again useless. We missed our connection because of the delay, they booked us on another flight but because they didn't tell us that we had to pick up our luggage or where (it was on a different carousel than the rest of the luggage from our flight) and that we had to go through customs we (and many others) missed that flight too. We finally got a flight out the next morning and they put us up at a hotel. We both had to miss another day of work and it was quite an ordeal. My husband's screen worked for almost all of that last flight before it seized up. We didn't bother to report it that time since another 10% off coupon wasn't going to do us any good. Overall it is concerning that Air Canada doesn't seem to be maintaining their planes in optimal condition and that their idea of compensation involves them making even more money from me. Never again."
Pros: "Flight was on time.service good ."
Cons: "Flight attended was not great .Too much walking in the terminal."
Pros: "TV screens and entertainment were nice."
Cons: "I would like to have the two meal options be one with meat and one without. The quality of the meal could have been better."
Cons: "didnt like the cabin crew attendants. Only 1 I interacted with gave off the impression of friendly. When they canceled the flight, the information they sent to me was inaccurate and during the rescheduling process people were short with me and it took forever. When inquiring about a refund so I could find a faster flight home, they told me they couldnt confirm the amount I might be refunded, but it would be hardly anything. Therefore, forcing me to be almost a day late getting home."
Pros: "The staff at boarding and flight crew very friendly, attentive and efficient. Good fare for return ticket."
Cons: "Food had no taste or imagination."
Pros: "Crew was great; polite, friendly, tolerant."
Cons: "Could have larger selection of films. Bathrooms get very dirty during long flight."
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff, fuss-free boarding, good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Plane could have been slightly cleaner (eg replace old, ratty in-flight magazines). Food was reasonable but a bit bland."
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "Everything was cool."
Cons: "Flight and hospitality"
Cons: "We nearly missed a chance to disembark between storms because an idiot decided to grab his bags before we could move. None of the flight crew came to yell at the dummy who was holding us up."
Pros: "Got us home safely. Confortable seats."
Cons: "Left one piece of luggage behind. Had to wait for it to be sent on next flight."
Cons: "You put me on Delta once I got to Detroit. Confusing and exhausting when you're not use to different airports and flying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed Missed the connecting flight food was terrible on plane baggage was damaged reached London in two days instead of one so much restlessness missed important family gathering at the destination"
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: "Nothing at all actually"
Cons: "Old tiny plane, delayed two hours because of what seemed like sheer stupidity. I mean we had to wait an extra 30 mins on top of the regular delay time because they loaded the bags wrong. I had already been traveling over 24 hours due to the time zone differences and this last flight was just intolerable. Certainly it could have been worse, but this was just terrible already."
Pros: "They boarded anyone carrying a musical instrument early."
Cons: "No snack; not even peanuts!"
Pros: "Had to change initial flight due to passport problem. Customer support was excellent. The man who rebooked our flights (air canada representative) did an excellent job."
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: "TV, music, and Movies were available at no additional charge. The passed out headphones also at no charge. All of the movies were available with subtitles in many languages. The were snacks, a dinner and breakfast plus a beverage service in between. Pillows and blankets were provided."
Cons: "I would suggest travelers bring their own headphones. Although the ones given out were functional the sound quality was poor."
