Good welcome at the registration desk, departure On time, pleasant flight
Small seats means other passengers thoughtlessly take up your space. At least it’s a short flight.
Everything when without a hitch
Pros: "I had a row to myself which was pleasant , the crew was very attentive and did assist when needed ... the ride was smooth"
Cons: "Snacks should at least be offered I came prepared but young children and teens tend to get hangry ... maybe more options for drinks as that’s all we get served?"
Cons: "The flight itself was great but it was very late in starting due to technical problems with the aircraft."
Pros: "There was more legroom than I expected."
Cons: "Departure was delayed by hours due to the Air Canada computer systems going down. That made it an even later redeye, but the cabin crew insisted on waking everyone up to serve dinner at 2am. Boarding in Toronto was a mess, and the details about what was wrong were very sketchy."
Pros: "Seats too small. Lousey food was lae"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Coach seats have okay room compared to some other carriers."
Cons: "At least from my experience, Air Canada is late half the time. This last leg was 6 hours late. No check-in availability notification on the second leg, and I got the flight delay notification after I landed (6 hours later)! Pretty useless. Everything is nickle and dimed with no included food except for the tiny snack thing on a 6 hour flight. It's pretty difficult to get their app to work for entertainment."
Cons: "Flight attendant announcements were painfully loud causing me to have to cover my ears on 3 occasions."
Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Cons: "Air Canada changed this flight to a red eye. And didn't let us know until months later by then we had booked our accommodation they don't allow refunds so we had to go regardless. But let me tell you we would have cancelled if possible"
Cons: "We were delayed for several hours. I could’ve and should’ve driven to Toronto because I would’ve made it there a lot quicker. The crew members were rude and clearly unhappy to be working. None of them were accommodating. It was a very unpleasant way to start my trip."
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: "The flight was so not packed. There were rows and rows of empty seats. I had a row to myself to sleep on, it was amazing."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Especially breakfast"
Pros: "My postponed flight was fine and flight attendants great."
Cons: "I missed my original flight because there were no staff at BWI airport counter or secret Air Canada office 55 minutes from flight time. Flight was delayed 35 minutes, but no way I could check a bag or get to gate."
Cons: "Our direct flight to Montreal was canceled due to mechanical issues. The rebooking process was discombobulating and we ended up arriving at our destination after the rerouting that was stressful and ensured that we lost a whole day of our vacation time. Our flight back the entertainment system in our seats did not function."
Cons: "Longest check-in line I've ever waited in. Pure chaos and lack of organization. Plane boarded from both sides, creating boarding chaos. Unexplained hour delay on the runway."
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."
Cons: "flight was cancelled after being loaded and pulled away from the terminal. waited for over 2 hours on the tarp and then they said the crew had run out of time and could not fly. They took us off of the plane and did not rebook us. It took everyone over two hours to get rebooked for the next day or even two days later. They almost had a revolt on their hand since they did not have a representative talk to us until the passengers started yelling at them. Very poor customer service. Just horrible."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."
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 flight was smooth and on time. For the most part crew was friendly."
Cons: "I'm 5'2" med. built and felt the seats cramped with little leg space. My seat had cold water dripping down onto my head and neck from the vent above the window. The flight attendant's response was "it will stop after a little bit". Disappointing."
Pros: "Roomy, professional, friendly. Very efficient. Beverages, meals and snacks were timed well, so that the long flight felt like it went much quicker. I'm not particularly picky or spoiled, so me rating the breakfast and lunch as great, may not be the same fOr others. But my meals were delicious to me. I would definitely fly Canada air again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "food was fairly good. crew very nice."
Cons: "The selection of movies was poor. not enough current releases. would have liked to have an alcoholic drink for free. (one would be nice)"
Pros: "short trip"
Cons: "delayed but didn't update the screen as delayed even though it was delayed an hour it still said on time."
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Cons: "Entertainment system. Spacious seating for economy class."
Pros: "The gate crew was instrumental in helping us board our flight when the first leg was delayed and or connection time was only 30 minutes."
Cons: "Of all the international airlines I have flown, this was by far the least well equipped for a long haul flight. There was no entertainment (we had to download an app to your personal device beforehand, which we were not informed about until already onboard). There were iPads for rent, but not nearly enough for the number of passengers requesting. The dinner was a good size, but there were no additional snacks, only small sized drinks offered, and alcohol was not complimentary, and a smaller size than what's provided while in N America for the same price. Overall, I was quite unimpressed with Air Canada, and will avoid flying with them in the future, when possible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "You really need to make those seats somewhat more comfortable. I'm an average sized person I think, 5'6" and 150 lbs, but I found the seats very hard and generally small. Also, please stop serving those hot pockets as a snack and please top charging for potato chips!"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "Convenience and ease of flying through Abbotsford. Ground staff was amiable and helpful in Abbotsford."
Cons: "Not enough leg room!! I'm 6'2" tall. I can't simply make my legs shorter. The food choices were limited. Please make the fruit and cheese platter available all day."
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."
Cons: "2 little kids, kicked the back of my seat the whole flight"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, and checkin was a breeze."
Pros: "Wow these guys balance MANY flight changes and seat changes with professional and humor that all the passengers appreciated"
Pros: "Got back home."
Cons: "Air Canada messed up new luggage process in YYZ for our BDA flight. Some connections qualify for baggage transfer with no pickup in Customs. BDA does not qualify. AC spent over an hour trying to figure out what to do with the luggage. Poor communication and inconsistent messaging didn't help. We made our connection but only because it was otherwise delayed arriving due to weather."
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."
Pros: "Departure was on time. Flight was fine on 777 aircraft."
Cons: "Food was OK but they came through with food and drinks too often to get any sleep on a long flight."
Pros: "New and spacious"
Cons: "The food wasn't great but then again it's just getting you where you want to go"
Pros: "The selection of current movies was varied enough (the content got a little staler on the return trip). The hot food tasted good and was hot. The crew was not stingy with the drinks, which I always like even if they come around fewer times"
Cons: "How hard it is to be comfortable/sleep in the tiny seat."
Cons: "No food on a five hour flight. Had to buy food this is nickeling and dimming people. They made me miss my connecting flight we sat around in tarmack and no explanation given."
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 was really great"
Cons: "No tvs, which I had on my connecting flight for each individual seat and then the 7hoir flight didn't have any? Also not having individual air control is very claustrophobic! Thank goodness I paid extra for premium seating, but the lady I sat next to said she didn't pay any extra :| also the seat in front of me where I had to place my bag had a bar under it so my bag didn't fit correctly"
Cons: "everything-the food is horrible, no space, no monitor so what do you do on an 8 hour flight overseas? When we booked, we were not told that we would be flying Air Canada Rouge, but were told we would be flying a different type of plane with amenities. Talk about Bait and Switch. Will avoid Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Flight overbooked. Told I didn't have a seat until 45 minutes before departure. Staff were rude and unhelpful when tried to ask why i didn't have a seat, No food on flight and generally poor service."
