Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "It would be better if the checked-in luggage is included everytime we book our flight via air canada so it will be hustle free for all the passengers."
Pros: "Crew, seats and entertainment. Unfortunately a rude passenger in front that put their seat back too far and refused to compromise so didn’t have much leg room over a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ran out of half the food options halfway down the plane."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Seat size"
Cons: "We didn't fly directly from Montreal to SFO. See above."
Pros: "People are couteous"
Cons: "Very cramped; big doing and dance about overhead room so I gate checked. There was empty overhead space and bags very slow to come out at baggage claim"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable seats, good, easy to use entertainment. Everything you would want on a flight. I have never flown air canada before, but definitely will again!!"
Pros: "Flights were very good. I was concerned about the buy food on board option but it worked well. The food was good and it cost less than buying in the airport and bringing on board. Using the charge card to pay wend smoothly and seemed not to slow the process at all. Good job Air Canada."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled due to wind. 35kts, didn't seem like a lot. They also said that Vancouver airport was experiencing bad weather too, but it seems like it was ONLY Air Canada flights that got cancelled that day. The next flight they wanted to put us on was 2 days later. We missed our connecting flight which cost us $3300 to change dates on."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats the the very rear"
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "The seats were tired and worn out. I could literally feel the metal bar in my back. They moved the magazines up to above the tray table and took the extra inch out. If there is an accident we are all going to eat magazines. I would rather deal with TSA than Air Canada"
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Pros: "Not a thing. Not a single thing. Truly no reason to encourage this airline."
Cons: "Absolutely awful experience. Zero entertainment options, save for BYOD which didn't even work for me - never was able to watch more than the first 30 seconds of anything, provided it would work at all. Also the film selection, had it worked, was wretched. Food was bland even by airline standards. Flight was delayed. I'm used to sleeping on these flights, even flying economy, but these seats were even more cramped than I'm used to. Perhaps all this would be forgivable had my flights been cheap, but no - it was about the most expensive trans-Atlantic flight I've had in recent memory."
Cons: "Employees seemed somewhat disorganized. There was not enough space in front of counter for people and there luggage. I ticketing agent would yell from far down the counter "Next...Next!) and finally walk closer so people in line could see/hear them. Then, often that next customer could not get to the counter in front of the agent because of the pillars and other people were blocking them. The space was too cramped. At boarding, Instructions over the loudspeaker were not clear and the video screens contained incorrect information about boarding. At one point the agent came out and yelled at everyone to "get out of line!, we are not boarding yet". I have never seen this process handled so poorly and I fly quite a bit."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Pros: "The crew at the gate were courteous and handled my inquiry professionally. Did not experience much because I slept through the whole thing. But the seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Air Canada receptionist (a blonde lady) at Logan took care of luggage poorly while checking in. She was impatient and threw my luggage like it was trash."
Pros: "I really liked how the crew on our leg to Heathrow made sure we were comfortable and asked often if we wanted more drinks (water, etc). We had a delay in landing due to weather but we were able to make our connection because they called ahead to customs and we were able to go to the front of the line. That's service!"
Cons: "Bathrooms got kinda dirty about halfway through the long flight from Toronto to Heathrow."
Pros: "Very friendly staff at airport. Saw we were flying with children and were able to put us on stand by to fly sooner."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but overall trip was good"
Cons: "7 hours flight delay"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours, plane A/C not working. Waited for another plane. They tried to fix the first plane but they just delayed getting another plane."
Cons: "If you are going to make people download things in order to watch movies or tv on a nine hour flight. You shouldn't charge people that don't have the devices to use one that you have on board. Also, making your entertainment app only available to apple customers and not android seems very unfair."
Pros: "On flight the flight and service was great. They need to work on the onboard section a lot."
Cons: "It was delayed for 2 hours not only they were late they didn't know the gate, I had to stop by the customer service they told me a wrong gate twice they didn't even announce. The most lower customer care I ever experience."
Cons: "Horrible to say the least"
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "The gate area was horribly crowded, extremely chaotic and hot."
Cons: "We had a hard time reserving seats in advance"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely and on time."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Seriously? No TVs for an international flight?? They should at least tell you that in advance so you can download movies and bring your chargers. We didn't get drink service until about 2 hours into the flight. Terrible. Food was boring and bad. Finally- we had to pay for wine and beer. On a $1000 flight? I have traveled internationally at least 15 times and this was by far the worst flight yet."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Pros: "Despite weather travel delayed I was taken care of very well. Comfortable seats. More leg room. Friendly, calm crew."
Cons: "We were not given the option to change our flight out from Chicago when we knew we wouldn't make the connection in Montreal due to weather."
Pros: "Air Canada made a last minute change on my iteniary which resulted in an 8 hour layover in Canada. Coming off a ten hour flight from Seoul this was not appreciated."
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick, efficient, on time"
Cons: "Seats had least legroom of any plane I can remember. I'm not that tall and my knees were in the seat pocket the whole 5 hr flight. Also, the seats could stand to be a lot cushier. I felt like I was sitting on a piece of cardboard after the first 2 hours."
Pros: "I bought Business Class because the rate was very competitive. Seat was comfortable enough. Flight departed nearly an hour late, but arrived early at the destination, which helped."
Cons: "The flight attendants in first class honestly seemed overworked and had no time for anyone. A request for a mixed whiskey beverage brought a Diet Coke instead. The attendant didn't seem to care at all when the mistake was pointed out, nor did she fix it. Snacks and drinks were essentially flung at us with the care of throwing slop at farm animals. Which pretty much describes the quality of the meal."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"
Cons: "Not a single flight during my entire trip, including flying back home, departed on time."
Pros: "On time, excellent flight."
Cons: "There was only a very limited choice of movies to select from."
Pros: "Flight was ontime! Attendants were corteous"
Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
Pros: "The crew had a problem passenger in first class (I was sitting a few rows back on the other side of the curtain. I noticed that the flight attendant was quickly dealing with something in front but kept her calm and didn't disrupt the overall experience of the passengers. When we landed the police boarded and arrested the man. The people around me didn't even notice anything was going on. I congratulate the Air Canada crew for keeping their cool and they obviously get good training to help them out in these situations."
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Pros: "Good attention by the crew. Cleaner than airlines rom the US in recent years. Good entertainment assortment."
Cons: "The buttons on the screen in economy seats for controlling the entertainment are less effective. too small, and sometimes a bit off. Tying to control during a light chop takes quite a bit of effort (A330)"
Pros: "My air Canada app. Worked great for entertainment"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for over an hour before we could take off The plane needs a good cleaning. Small size bits of garbage on the floor next to the wall. It's getting missed ... Needs to be vacuumed"
Pros: "I will fly Air Canada again but will probably drive to Toronto to catch a plane, rather than take the connecting plane out of my own city.There's a Tim Horton's at the airport!"
Cons: "Flight from our small city was late leaving and we didn't find out about the delay until close to the take off time. The reason given to us was that there was too much air traffic in Toronto. Couldn't this have been planned better? Not the fault of Air Canada."
Pros: "Seats were as comfortable as it could get for long haul economy flight. Food was decent everything was clean."
Pros: "This flight always takes off and lands on time, and has a friendly flight crew."
Pros: "Everything the Dteamliner experiance"
Pros: "The staff on the flight was very attentive and helpful. Food was great, entertainment selection was fantastic, and the entire flight was smooth and comfortable. Absolutely would fly Air Canada again!"
Pros: "My flight was cancelled suddenly and my luggage are lost. I stayed at the airport until 4.am."
