Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"

Pros: "The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?"
Cons: "The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant."

Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."

Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."

Pros: "Entertainment, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "nice screen, but need to bring your own earplugs or pay to get a pair. toilet was clean, seat was quite comfortable for economy class"
Cons: "the reading light from next seat passenger was disturbing me a lot, spotting on my head & arm and it was really warm.. no room to store bag below front seat"

Pros: "In flight Game of Thrones!!"
Cons: "The lines at YVR were horrendous."

Pros: "the accommodation of the carry on in the compartments, it is absolutely disturbing and dangerous; specially and such of huge plane like the one I flew. Passengers should have the right to have a least 1 registered for free luggage to avoid such of chaos, possible injuries and delays. i feel horrible for the flight attendants for such of task of carrying and moving so many luggages."
Cons: "The fact that traveling International for so many hours, I was treated like I was flying Domestic. No, food, no drinks. In the past airlines complained about cost of fuel, gas, but now is cheaper and we PASSANGERS never have any consideration flying. Another fact is the seatis are too small, I had to share my seat with two overweight women and they occupied part of my space, I was so uncomfortable, I requested for another seating and was not possible due to the fullness of the plain. I standed up many time not rubber and feel the heat of that person on my left side. overweight people should be suggested to buy double seating."

Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."

Pros: "Same plane as the one I flew on the way to Toronto. It's a really nice plane."

Pros: "the crew was super nice. very friendly and caring. the entertainment was perfect. boarding was easy and timely."
Cons: "the seats offer little to no lumbar support. this was midigated a little with the pillow and blanket, it didnt really do much. for someone who has lower back issues, this was a big problem, a reason i am dreading my flight home. on top of that, it was my first time flying internationally, so i had no clue i had to hunt down my flight via flight time board."

Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."

Cons: "Missed the flight"

Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."

Cons: "Wasn't offered a drink or food for 2 hours into the flight. Then when they reached me, all the options were sold out. I had crackers and hummus for lunch. I am pregnant and travelling alone with a toddler and was told by a flight attendant they were suppose to help me lift my bag. Nothing major, but left an unpleasant experience compared to Westjet."

Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."

Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."

Cons: "Baggage misplaced"

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."

Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."

Cons: "I almost missed my connecting flight due to AC delaying departure in Vancouver. I received no solid information from the stewardess on the flight on whether the connecting plane in Toronto would wait. I mean, really. There was never any explanation as to why the Vancouver flight was late either."

Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."

Pros: "I liked that the flight was not completely full. we had a hard touchdown"
Cons: "1. These days, I have come to expect a complimentary in-flight entertainment system on international flights. This flight had nothing whatsoever. This is ok, but the customer should be warned when making the flight reservation so they can choose whether to bring an ipad along. 2. Food and service were not as good as a recent Air Canada return trip from Roma to Vancouver which had a first rate crew, food, and complimentary beer. 3. The plane was much older than the recent return trip I had and the air was much more dry."

Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants, especially Theresa, were fantastic. Theresa was very attentive, fun, and made each passenger feel special. The flight crew Supervisor greeted us each by name and leads a spectacular crew. The seat, amenities, entertainment, and food were just amazing."
Cons: "Business class did not have it's own boarding call."

Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy which made a big difference. Lots of leg room, a menu, pre flight drinks."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."

Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pretty terrible for an international airline, charge for drinks, earbuds, no inflight entertainment without pre downloading their crappy app, which was full of ancient, terrible movies. Lots of stuff broken on plane, reading light would turn on/off randomly. Very annoying. Charger did not work, had to use the row next to us"

Pros: "Friendly crew very helpful. Not as loud as the last flight."
Cons: "So many people crammed into a small space. Needed more leg room and shoulder room."

Pros: "Very good individual entertainer system in seat backs of new boeing dream liner."
Cons: "Called in advance re special veg meal but they didn't have it at mealtime."

Pros: "I always like to fly Air Canada for long international flights. Everyone has their own TV, where you can choose what movie/TV show you want to watch, or what game you want to play. You can also pause, fast forward, and rewind at any point, which is not always possible on other airlines. The food was also very tasty. We were served two full meals and a sandwich. The alcohol was free, which was lovely too. The staff were nice and there was plenty of leg room. Overall, it was a great flight."

Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."

Cons: "Pushed call button twice as I could not get entertainment system in business class to work, never came"

Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."

Pros: "At least there was food tho only banana bread for breakfast"
Cons: "No movies or entertainment for overnight flight"

Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."

Cons: "Bread dry and no choice . Fresh fruit would be refreshing"

Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "We waited nearly two hours AFTER WE BOARDED THE PLANE for a flat tire to be changed, or so we were told. In typical airline fashion, we were told several times that the delay would probably take about 15 minutes, turning into nearly 2 hours. In combination with the change I described above and the 9.5 hour flight to Tokyo, we were completely done in for 2-3 days after we got to Tokyo."

Pros: "As a 6'5" guy, I was worried about spending ten hours on a plane. Air Canada made the flight enjoyable with comfortable seats (even in the economy class) and high quality flight attendants."

Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "We are retired adults and seated with at least a dozen young children around us, it was so loud. The two year old next to me kicked me off and on the whole flight."

Pros: "The plane was fairly modern and the seating had more leg room than many other economy flights I have taken. The flight attendants were friendly and courteous. All-in-all a very good flight. I was especially appreciative of the concessions made for skiers when it came to luggage. Also, the luggage fees were very reasonable."
Cons: "I was a bit surprised that no snacks were offered free of charge. I can understand that meals are not included in economy, but nuts, cookies or some pretzels would be nice."

Cons: "The flight attendants are extremely rude. Even when the passengers were sweet to them. In general horrible horrible horrible customer service. For that reason I don't think I'd fly on air canada again."

Pros: "Friendly staff - clean, newer plane."
Cons: "Sound/video system kept rebooting in both of our seats and volume would randomly increase/decrease. Arm rest controls easily bumped (does not seem to be the reason video system was problematic)."
