Small seats means other passengers thoughtlessly take up your space. At least it’s a short flight.
Pros: "Kind, friendly staff, boarded on time"
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked Flight left early & arrived early No delays from AC"
Pros: "Flight and crew were good . Not even peanuts or pretzels served , sat on plane for 5.5 hours ."
Cons: "Air Canada customer service on ground is horrible .my original flight I booked for my son’s wedding was cancelled and I was told they will put me on another flight a day later or I could get a refund.... not professional , not caring ."
Pros: "The food was ok. Movie selection was decent and the screens are a lot better than on jet airways."
Cons: "Boarding was a little delayed. Service was a little slow, but the crew was courteous and did their best."
Cons: "No regard to passengers schedules I was supposed to be home 4 hrs ago. Still waiting for the flight home. Family informed me that the weather is great back home. So not an excuse!"
Pros: "Great Service."
Cons: "2 hours delayed and we waited 45 minutes for our luggage to arrive."
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: "Entertainment system has a bunch of varieties to keep you entertained for a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The delays were horrible!!! Had 4 flights with them. Seattle to Vancouver, Vancouver to Beijing, Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle. Seattle to Vancouver was delayed so long that we almost missed our connecting flight to Beijing. Because of that delay our baggage missed the Vancouver to Beijing flight and we had nothing for 2 days!!! It was a hassle to get some kind of compensation and just having to wear the same clothes for 2 days. Also the Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle flights were also delayed"
Pros: "No tv"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "Friendly staff, scent collection of media on offer."
Cons: "Size of the seats, baggage fees, insulting attitude of the baggage check in staff in MTL."
Pros: "I got from point A to point B"
Cons: "I lost over a day of my trip because a flight was cancelled and wasted 6 hours trying to rebook with no help from the staff, who were extremely rude. Everyone on the canceled flight had to be aggressive at getting a new flight booked because there was no help. Every time you asked an associate from Aur Canada for help, the passed the problem off not taking any responsibility. If your name is on my ticket, then it's your responsibility. Worst experience traveling by far. Also lost over a day of my expensive trip that I've been waiting to go on for awhile and saved my money for a year. I lost hundreds of dollars in events and hotels. Avoid Air Canada if possible"
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "Was confusing because united and air Canada were involved so had to triple check what airline and terminal we'd arrive in back in states."
Cons: "Hot day small hot plane for awhile"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and that's understandable, my luggage however was lost and I was not fully informed about the delayed luggage process with Air Canada. Now I will be at least 4, maybe even 5 days without my luggage at an international destination."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Horrible customer care"
Cons: "Food, no leg space."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment videos do not have closed captioning. This is highly discriminatory towards the hearing impaired. I am really disappointed that Air Canada has so blatantly neglected the comfort of passengers with hearing disabilities."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Cons: "Air Canada should stop using these old planes. They are uncomfortable noisy and crowded"
Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"
Pros: "My 55 min flight ended up taking nearly 3 hours since there were about 9 people that needed to gate check their bags. Air Canada needs to figure a better way to gauge the carryon situation. People had giant bags that just couldn't fit in the overhead. Also- there were far too many people with carry one. I paid to check my bag... then got stuck with my backpack under my feet and jacket in my lap for 2.5 hours as we sat on the runway."
Cons: "To be honest, nothing specific stands out. The whole ordeal was pretty much a nightmare. We were offered some pretzels and water while we sat on the runway for hours."
Pros: "Flight was good on time ..flight crew good as well coming to toronto from trinidad ..however from toronto was a totsl disaster..long lines with confusion with 3 flights being checked in at once ..sent to other line 1 person checking in people then sent back again across hall to check in baggage ..was ridiculous aa such a big airline n chaos to get on flight ..also left more than an hr later with all the confusion"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Great gentle landing (so accustomed to being jolted in my seat on some other airlines when wheels touch down)."
Cons: "Tray was broken and wobbly. Some sort of yogurt or something had dried on the back of the seat and seat did not look very clean."
Pros: "On-time and quick boarding."
Cons: "Not enough leg room - similar to most airlines."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They made me gate check bag because it wouldn't fit in bag sizer. Most bags wouldn't fit in sizer but I was singled out for no good reason."
Pros: "While I do just like to have my legs fit in the seat, the room makes for a much nicer seven hour flight. The provided iPad setup is good for entertainment and the good is fine."
Pros: "I was last on the plane. The crew was welcoming."
Cons: "Not very clean bathroom. Not unusual for airplanes."
Pros: "They fed us several times."
Cons: "No wifi. The seats are really uncomfortable. Delays."
Pros: "Ample legroom and very pleasant and helpful onboard staff."
Pros: "The flight was great, friendly staff, great food, new plane, lots of options on the new AC entertainment system. The new Star Alliance terminal (T2) at Heathrow is also so fast and efficient! No complaints at all!!!"
Cons: "We were late getting into Chicago and I missed my connection to Albuquerque. I was scheduled to arrive at my destination at noon and because we were late, I didn't get home until almost midnight."
Pros: "First time flying on the largest airline in Canada and had a positive experience. From the online check in process to returning home it was a smooth trip"
Cons: "I have no gripes with the airline. Only the process of customs and security"
Pros: "It was a fine flight all around"
Pros: "Fast boarding and unboarding"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight and Air Canads charged me $300! They said thy had some 'peak days' fee (August) and a 'weekend' fee, which covers Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 3 day weekend??! Come on, what a scam. Just charge me the flat change fee not all these bullshit greedy add-ons."
Cons: "It was cancelled."
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: "No free meal on 6 hours flight, small plane, chanel gates..."
Pros: "Checking our luggage at the gate and how courteous everyone was Maureen"
Cons: "paying for extra seats was fine but our zone was the last to call. Maureen"
Pros: "I got lucky and got a very good seat. that was great. The plane was kept at a very decent temperature - a little cold but not an ice box."
Cons: "the food was really of a poor quality. that was quite surprising. even the dessert was inedible."
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: "It got cancelled and the service was horrific"
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "Again, great crew."
Cons: "Boarding was misdirected and confusing, as Gate designation kept changing and airport staff was not very helpful."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was nice, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "Our first Air Canada flight was 2hr delayed due to mechanical error. After a 2hr delay, we finally flew for 1hr, had awful turbulence on the way down, and got to Toronto only to find out there was no customer service desk. We missed our connection with Luftanza and had to fly Air Canada again. First off, we couldn't get on another flight until the next morning. Then the desk never called the hotel they gave us the voucher for, so when we showed up at midnight the hotel was fully booked and had no room for us. We had to fly into Heathrow instead of Gatwick (final destination was Brighton for an international conference). We missed the entire first day of the meeting and had to rent a car for 65 pounds each to take us to Brighton from Heathrow, finally arriving at our hotel by midnight. The customer service was non-existent for Air Canada. We literally are going to have to email them."
Pros: "The Boeing airplane was either new or upgraded with plenty of in flight entertainment. In addition it was clean and fresh. The seats seemed to have more legroom than some I have flown. I could actually use my notebook on the tray stand. I was traveling on the same plane with my wife but we could only get separate seats. I decided to ask before boarding if they could put us together for such a long flight and they took my boarding pass and actually tried. The lady I checked in with was extremely gracious. She passed our info along to the head attendant on the flight who came and found us and told us she had found seats together. We had already done some seat switching with the kind people around us and managed to get together. The head attendant was happy for us."
Cons: "Long flight, when we got close to Tel Aviv, a guy attendant who wasn't on my side yelled at me from the other ailse and scolded me for not being locked in 30 minutes ahead of time and threatened to write me up. He was red faced. The head flight attendant made a call over the intercom, I jumped up and started stowing my computer and he comes by 30 seconds later and literally yelled across the plane. He must have had to clean a bathroom up that someone let loose in. I looked on the flight time register on the screen when I was locked in and we were 35 minutes out. Not quite a rule breaker was I."
