The plane was comfortable and clean. The entertainment system was great. The staff at the check in line and the gate were rude and unhelpful. I bought a basic fare for a 90 minute flight that Air Canada oversold so I was on standby to fly. It’s ridiculous that you pay for a flight and you aren’t assigned a seat unless you pay more. Flyers be aware. I would not book another basic fare on Air Canada. Flair and Lynx treat customers better and provide better service on a very short flight.
Atleast along with water or juice they should give some snacks.
Cons: "If it wasn’t 3 hours late."
Cons: "Cramped seats. No IFE. Chaotic boarding. Luggage missed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Almost missed my conection. Never on time."
Cons: "Food could be improved!"
Cons: "Although we "upgraded" to a front row with supposedly extra legroom, the dividing panel in front was closer than a row of seating would be and there was no room to stretch legs. Painful!"
Pros: "Airplane, entertainment and food was ok"
Cons: "Air canada service is terrible as usual. Service with an attitude. No drinks served!"
Pros: "Gate crew were very good at keeping us apprised of the status of the inbound plane and our estimate departure time. The flight crew were all very helpful and engaging. Not easy on a packed flight where too many people brought too many carry-on bags."
Cons: "I am a true-blue Air Canada customer but their checked baggage fees has created a disaster when it comes to boarding flights and getting planes in the air on-time. Many people had too many carry-on bags or very large carry-on bags so the time it took to board was ridiculous. Better rules need to be enforced with carry on (not that I blame people for trying, considering the increase in checked baggage fees) so that flights can be boarded more quickly and planes can take off on time."
Cons: "Never happened. See above"
Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so I sat in my own row,?which offered spare leg room (I’m 6’2”). Time to fix the leg room issue on Rouge flights — it’s 2018."
Cons: "Crew seemed uninterested in general. On phones in back while people struggling to find luggage space. Coffee cups and plastic utensils, etc, stored in overhead bins so people at the back had to search for carry-on space elsewhere, again, without assistance from on board crew. Offered service only once and many were sleeping so didn’t get anything. The overall check-in process could be easier, as the app doesn’t always work as it should."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants (potentially a French Canadian or maybe just plain French) was amongst the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life. She was a little mean, but I'm willing to let it slide. In fact, I'm willing to let a lot of the negative things about the flight slide because of her (sorry, got to give credit where credit is due)."
Cons: "Got diarrhea from the waffles. The seats did not recline. No entertainment, but hey, this flight was damn cheap so I'm not complaining! Also, see positives."
Pros: "Flight was mercifully short."
Cons: "Air Canada canceled other short haul flights and jammed the overflow passengers onto our flight which resulted in our flight being late and overcrowded. Passengers that came from the canceled flight complained that this wasn't the first time Air Canada had done this."
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: "Easy comfortable flight from yvr-sfo. Landed early do can’t complain."
Pros: "Friendly staff. The 777-300 ER has high ceilings. Individual outlets available for electronic devices. Clean washrooms."
Cons: "Vegan menu needs improvement. No toothbrush or slippers issued. Movie collection was outdated and contained more Asian content."
Pros: "One of the crewmembers (regrettably, I did not catch his name) was incredibly kind when I moved seats to accommodate a couple that wanted to sit together. He really made this flight great."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable but the row I moved to did not allow me to recline."
Pros: "That they give you ear phones"
Cons: "Delay 1 hour"
Pros: "the app so you can choose your own movies"
Cons: "very crowded. snacks werent very good or healthy"
Cons: "Flight late (30 minutes) as mostly with Air Canada, fortunately not cancelled this time as also common with Air Canada short distance flights Not enough space in overhead compartments for carry on. The lady at the boarding makes it sound like that is the passengers fault."
Cons: "delayed. no explanation for a long time. no agent at gate for alot of the time."
Pros: "Fast and friendly check-in, flight was on time, service on board was good, flight was comfortable."
Cons: "First it was delayed because of the aircraft, then it was delayed some more because of the bags on the plane but no passengers - bag owners . Then it was delayed because the ramp crew could not be found to remove the bags. Then it was delayed because of the weather ..."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Cons: "Our flights were switched twice. Ended up paying for seats on an added interim flight to Chicago. Not good. Do not like surprises."
Pros: "I never got in my flight home for my aunts funeral and to get back to work because nothing on your website warned or notified me that I needed a visa just for a connecting flight on Air Canada so not only did I lose my money I was denied my flight denied the chance to be at my aunts funeral and get back to work. So my honest opinion is that I am extremely disappointed and deeply saddened by this evtire ordeal now I have to spend more money to purchase another ticket with another airline to go home. Thanks for the hassle! Aslim Hosein."
Cons: "Seriously? NOTHING AT ALL and I wish I could select no stars"
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "No food!!"
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to fill up sons water bottle as we had to empty it before we went through security and I forgot to refill it. Flight attendant was very rude and made a big deal out of having to fill it. Just felt her reaction was over board and quite uncalled for."
Pros: "Comfortable ride and on time"
Cons: "Compared to the flight over with Lufthansa, the food, drinks and treatment by the flight attendants was not nearly as good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 45 mins. The Toronto Airport Terminal B was hellascious. No AC. Then we had to turn around after we were half way to Nashville and change planes. Not a good way to end a great trip back from Europe."
Pros: "The crew was great, the flight was fast, the plane was very comfortable. Other than the time delay, the flight was great."
Cons: "Flight was again delayed (over 1.5 hours)."
Pros: "The crew is top notch. The plane was in great condition, the pilots had good landings. Would definitely fly Air Canada again. Both flights there and back departed on time, never had any set backs."
Cons: "The movie selection is so limited, this should definitely be expanded. Also the controls while you're watching a film do not allow for quick return to main menu, maybe there is but it should be quite obvious how to do that. I'm not someone who cannot handle technology, so it should be easier than whatever mechanism there is at the moment. Good should be included."
Pros: "Crew was nice though not very professional."
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Pay for food- embarrassing"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Cons: "Delays,multiple gate changes, poor waiting areas for express flights!!!"
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: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."
Pros: "Clean airplane Helpful crew Overall great experience"
Pros: "Cabin crew were pleasant and flights on time."
Cons: "Food awful, had to pay for food on the SFO to Toronto leg of journey. The food provided on Toronto to Glasgow journey was of poor quality and had to pay for a glass of wine, this is free when flying with BA. I did not even receive a bag of peanuts. I paid for extra leg room in an exit row thinking it was the same exit row as a BA plane.... The extra legroom I paid for was negligible, minimal difference noted."
Cons: "Lost bag. Took two days to return. Very bad customer service while trying to recover."
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: "In flight entertainment was great - good selection of movies and TV shows. Attendants worked hard. Food suprisingly good. Very reasonable fare - drove to Toronto from Cincinnati to save $1000 per person vs. flying out of Cincinnati and $700 per person out of Atlanta."
Cons: "Music selections limited for someone who grew up in 60's and 70's."
Pros: "Spacious seating and friendly staff"
Cons: "Media center was outdated and lacked options. Food was bland and lackluster for vegetarians"
Cons: "The announcement about turbulence were to much. Could have been way more subtle or shorter"
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. Lady at the counter was not helpful at all. Although my main carrier for the international flight allowed 2 checked baggage free of charge, Air Canada only allowed one free baggage and 2nd baggage for $100 for the connection."
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: "Left on time, arrived on time, staff were organized and efficient, luggage came out fast"
