I have Million Mile status so always receive good service
Boarding, crew knowledge/experience, waiting time on a bus (in Lisbon) to our gate, poor directions and lack of staff to direct travelers through customs once landed in Toronto.
Thé flight was on time and the hostess was very nice,helpful and friendly.
They cancelled my flight and had nothing else available at the time I needed to fly, so I had to book with another airline that was $200 more for the
Airplane arrived late at the gate. Staff was not prepared to board a passenger with disabilities. Boarding was long. Crew member treated without respect a passenger that was worried about missing a connection. It took longer than expected ro get a gate at the airport.
Flight delayed by four hours
Small seats means other passengers thoughtlessly take up your space. At least it’s a short flight.
Cons: "Bathroom was disgusting. Sink and toilet clogged and filled with paper"
Cons: "WiFi connection and thereby any information and entertainment did not work. Long wait for luggage."
Pros: "We got here"
Cons: "Not being 2 hours late"
Pros: "Good Flight"
Cons: "1.5 hr delay in aircraft while waiting for Take off Slot No Coffee (hot drinks) or Alcahol (wine, scotch) on flight"
Pros: "There was one crew member was passive aggresive and doing his best to annoy the whole trip, I had to get other crew involved, he was hitting on my friend as well....."
Cons: "This was a United flight sold as Air Canada to me and Lufthansa to my friend. This made check in twice as long since we went to the wrong counters. The quality was horrendous for an international flight and the entertainment system was broken. I paid atleast 50% more than I should have. Never fly UA"
Cons: "My wife was denied boarding the flight because of some confusion with her documentation. This "kid" that was an Air Canada representative took it upon himself to deny her boarding because of what he claims as documentation not good enough to travel through Canada into the United States. My wife, who's green card is pending has travel authorization by USCIS that expires in Oct. 2018 that permits her to travel back and fourth from Peru to the US. She also has a special stamp from USCIS in her Peruvian passport. We tried our best to make this guy understand. He clearly did not understand the rules regarding her situation. He didn't even bother to get a manager. Furthermore, we were treated terribly by the Air Canada staff at the Lima Airport. They could see I was visibly furious. I had to leave my wife there at the airport not knowing for sure if she was ever going to get out of Peru. When I went to check in my bags, they tried to charge me $250 because both my bags were overweight. One of the gate agents tried to coax me into a fight just so they could call security. The whole thing left me shaken. Not only that, I had to make another reservation for my wife on United Airlines which costs me $1700. She had no problem boarding that flight with her documentation. I find that interesting don't you?"
Pros: "The food and service were very good."
Cons: "The entertainment system is a bit outdated and had to be rebooted more than once. But this was only a minor inconvenience."
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: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow and back support non-existent."
Pros: "The vegan meal was tasty"
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. My partner’s entertainment screen would not work so I was not in a position to use mine. Air Canada doesn’t understand vegan. Offered us egg and cheese for a snack. Typical air travel. Long live the train."
Pros: "All was great on this flight from Gatwick to Toronto. We liked the food they served."
Cons: "I don't recall not liking anything."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Broken headphone for TV screen"
Pros: "lay-flat bed for red-eye flight to Toronto"
Cons: "The entertainment system was down for 45 minutes on the flight from toronto to vancouver, and the air crew didn't seem to be bothered by it until many people complained / asked to move."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Cons: "Late flight No info given to passengers"
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "The boarding process"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, no entertainment except dated material, crowded, overhead luggage does not fit a 20in bag except sideways, very inefficient use of space. Given the choice a rouge flight would be my last choice."
Cons: "I was unable to board that flight since I did not have transit visa for Canada and no where it was mentioned anywhere on Kayak's website. Nor on confirmation email as well. I was not aware of the same despite having travelled to states couple of times in the past. I had to purchase ticket from another carrier at the last moment on the airport."
Pros: "The cost is to high especially not coming with a meal"
Pros: "My flight was on time"
Pros: "Quick easy and painless boarding and de boarding. It's been a while since I flew Air Canada and I was pleasantly surprised by the upgrades, including the tinted windows!"
Pros: "The privacy of the person was honored"
Cons: "Having to stop. We were not told our luggage would not have to be transported through customs"
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me; the flight wasn't full, so I was able to stretch out more comfortably. The crew was very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize I needed the app to access entertainment, and I had no way to download it when I got to the plane. I saw that a leg of my journey was on Rouge, and assumed it would be a shorter leg, not the longest. It was disappointing."
Pros: "fast and easy boarding, spacious"
Cons: "No food offered, staff not approachable"
Pros: "Flight was on time.Seats were comfortable with adequate leg room."
Cons: "There was no snack offered, just food for sale, and it was a long flight. Also there were several movies listed in the entertainment guide that were not available on the entertainment system. There were not many movies available at all."
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything I liked, other than the plane arriving and leaving on time."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment is a joke, it's a 14 hour flight so why are there only 3 episodes of any tv show? The food was inedible, and beverages were limited to 3 choices coffee, water or juice. I was trying to sleep on the plane but every time a flight attendant would walk past me they would run into me (and I was very much within my seat) and wake me up. They also woke me up to ask if I wanted food twice. The seats were so uncomfortable. I'm an able bodied 20 something and if I am in this much physical pain from flying I can't imagine what an elderly person must feel like after flying Air Canada. The pillow that was provided gave me no comfort what so ever, it wasn't think enough to even offer some back support."
Pros: "Boeing 767 is a great aircraft in every way!"
Cons: "A shame to connect in Toronto!"
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: "Overall good. A bad delay and boarding process. I can't fill out the above rating cause my computer dos'nt let me."
Pros: "I thought that things ran very smooth and efficientlt"
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"
Pros: "Nice airplane and very friendly staff once finally on board."
Cons: "Please read previous comments (copied and pasted below) I should never have been sold the flight. The connecting time was too short - even under normal circumstances without delay I was told that I had a solid chance of missing the flight. Furthermore, once I finally made it into Montreal for my connecting flight, no one did anything to expedite my experience. They tried to get me to my final destination 24 hours after I was supposed to be there - they had a packet of accommodations for hotel and flight already prepped (mind you, I had only missing my flight by 10 minutes so clearly my seat was sold to someone else), and they didn't want to accommodate me in any other way. Explaining that I was meeting a friend who had taken another flight, I was told that the problem was not his and there was nothing I could do. Even though I found flights on Kayak and on Air Canada site for an alternate flight getting me out to Europe a few hours later, I was told "no can do." I asked him to speak to a manager and suddenly he was on the phone and (successfully) accomodating me. BUT. The flight was a connecting flight (connection in Rome to final destination Barcelona) - and he hadn't booked me the Rome to Barcelona portion. i was told - "go see the stand in Rome and they will have your ticket ready to go." They didn't have anything on their record but did tell me that this flight should not have been booked for me without having a ticket for my final destination. This was a hellish experience and I will be writing reviews and contacting Air Canada further to discuss this whole process."
Cons: "7 hour delay combined with the most rude airline staff I have ever met."
Pros: "The plane was a large one so it makes my trip comfortable with my 2 years and 2 months baby"
Cons: "it seems to be expensive to pay full ticket price for a 2 years and 2 months baby in addition to 1 small bag for the 2 of us."
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: "staff polite"
Cons: "Flight attendant speech over intercom unintelligible. She held the mic too close and spoke much too fast."
Pros: "3 1/2 hours late cramped stuffy with a very strong chemical disinfectant odor that was gagging passengers . Cabin was too hot and poorly ventilated. Only flight landing in Pittsburgh late Tuesday night and we were still forced to walk him from the very end of the concourse . Once we got to the landside terminal we had to walk past all the unused baggage claim area to the very end carousel. Pittsburgh airport management should be ashamed of themselves . No wonder there tax finance Taj Mahal is a ghost town !"
Pros: "I flew Air Canada from Copenhagen to Toronto in June of 2016. Air Canada personnel are friendly, polite, treat everyone as a welcomed guest. Of all the major airline carriers, Air Canada demonstrates consistent exceptional customer service and have set a standard other carriers should yake note and master."
