Took off 3 hours late for 50 minute flight.
Large passenger next to me did not fit into small aircraft seat causing me severe discomfort.
Pros: "It was ok...I always find paris-jeddah better than Frankfurt-jeddah (in food service, plane size, entertainment...etc)"
Cons: "Food level need to improve...The chicken meal was not well prepared, and the chicken needed to be cooked well... flight attendent was nice and switched to a beef meal."
Pros: "The movies and outlets for charging things"
Cons: "Don’t allow screaming babies/kids on the flight next time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable and small space for the travelers"
Cons: "Air Canada continues to underwhelm me. We left the gate 35 minutes late despite having everyone on board. Then off to de-ice where we sat with a truck outside for ten minutes they did work. It was like they were having a coffee break. The flight and board service was exceptional. Baggage delay of a"
Pros: "Had to emergency reschedule the trip home due to a medical emergency in the family. Explained the situation and urgency to the AC client services rep. He got my wife and I on the next flight out (and first one in) from an alternate airport (Fort Myers instead of Tampa). They waived any rescheduling charges and billed flight differential charges of under $10 each. It was very much appreciated that in the middle of or crisis, we found a friendly and helpful response from an Airline that too often has received bad reviews. In my books, you folks are #1 when it counts. Thanks so much!"
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work after I paid for it"
Pros: "on time, courteous and helpful flight attendants. Good food in the right amounts."
Cons: "never easy to sleep properly, but was able to rest and sleep enough."
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable, cramped, didn't recline had to pay for entertainment no flight status information during flight food wasn't tasty"
Cons: "Entertainment choices limited compared to the past. Very few recent releases (they now have "new to Air Canada" releases and they can be decades old"
Cons: "Talking, crying 6 yr old next to me."
Pros: "The crew was great, the seat was spacious enough, food was decent (enough to make me happy and not hungry) and the movies were 9/10."
Cons: "Still don't understand why I can carry on my skateboard from candada but have to check it when I'm in Europe... this isn't very convenient and costs too much extra money."
Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."
Cons: "Have to pay for entertainment on such a long flight. Crew was very rude"
Pros: "It was aweful !!!...."
Cons: "Staff barely available . Entertainment, drinks charged ,why ? They were free flying to Europe ?!.Air Canada Rouge terrible in every possible way !!! Flight delayed by 2.5 hr....bathrooms dirty and when same mentioned ( no room to place more dirty towels in) staff indifferent !!! Lufthansa is shooting itself into foot by Air Canada alliance .Never again will I book my flight with Air Canada Airlines ( God forbid Rouge).Flight Toronto Vancouver ,disgrace ....freezing cold on board but staff wouldn't notice same because they were not present except giving off skimpy 2 servings of water/juice . Tea (old ,too strong,yak).Wake up people ,none of the passengers I spoken to had anything positive to say ! I liked my Lufthansa flight to Europe but for the sheer reason having to return with Air Canada I will avoid booking this flight .Thank You."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours, no information was provided on the delay and further delay at the gate waiting for the crew."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Pros: "I like the time this flight saved me. The food was good."
Cons: "Not a lot of choice in entertainment, but it still was fine."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "We didnt crash"
Cons: "We didn't crash"
Pros: "I arrived where I needed to be, safely."
Cons: "It might be possible to get good reviews for a flight that takes off two and a half hours late so that everybody misses dinner and gets to bed late (and forty-five minutes to get my bag didn't help matters). But you're not going to get them if you won't even tell your customers why the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Pros: "Ample leg room and the headphone jacks worked for the online entertainment."
Cons: "Grateful that the online entertainment works on the taxi as West Palm delayed our departure by over 30 minutes."
Pros: "My flight was on time"
Pros: "It was a short flight and there was entertainment on board."
Cons: "Missed my original flight due to the delay in the flight from Newark. Had to be placed on standby and this was the third available flight to Toronto I got on. Boarding took forever for some reason. People were in line for at least half an hour so they gave out free earphones to compensate. Otherwise you'd have to purchase it."
Pros: "The flight was exactly as scheduled."
Cons: "Poor room service, no TV for 10 h long flight, meals were small and not tasty, wine or beer has to be bought. Parents with little babies were sitting in all passengers area. I was hungry and tired after this flight."
Cons: "10+ hour international flight and there were no TV's and no free alcohol. There was an option to rent an ipad."
Cons: "If you are going to make people download things in order to watch movies or tv on a nine hour flight. You shouldn't charge people that don't have the devices to use one that you have on board. Also, making your entertainment app only available to apple customers and not android seems very unfair."
Cons: "Video display didn't accept touch input so didn't work at all."
Pros: "1. Pilot kept plane informed which is great especially when there is potential turbulence."
Cons: "1. No entertainment on the flight. Not even opportunity to see where the plane is in flight and when we will arrive. No USB charger on the flight. Very outdate plane. 2. The plane was very dirty - trash in between the seat 4. The food was the worst I ever tried on the plane 5. I was very surprised at the very disappointing service. I must say, with all the travel I do, apart from 1 young lade, the flight attendants acted like they loathed being there. It is so disappointing especially b/c I am Canadian so it is a bit embarrassing that Air Canada seems to have such terrible service. 6. The flight attendants were out of a lot of things, I heard them mention several beverages they were out of throughout the flight. I also heard them say that there will be no hot beverages while seatbelt sign is on (which it was a lot). I guess that is reasonable, however, it is the first time I have encountered that on the place. Instead they directed to passengers to come up to the back of the plane to get a hot beverage when the seatbelt sign was off. I did a few times - 1st time they said they were out of cups and to stop by later. But 2nd time had the cups. Did these cups get magically delivered midair or perhaps maybe they just needed to bring cups from the storage on the place and could have given me an option to wait while they retrieve them. 2nd time when I stopped by to try to get a hot beverage, a lady with black hair just gave me an empty cup. The whole experience with this flight was confusing - some attendants seemed not to understand fully what passengers were asking."
Pros: "There was enough legroom, as compared to airlines like Cathy Pacific."
Cons: "All the flight attendants seemed a bit frazzled; I felt guilty for asking for wine with lunch, and you had to either use your own device or pay $10 to access the in-flight entertainment. Even then, I could only watch TV shows on my laptop --you need an app to see movies. Very strange and felt like being in a domestic flight."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly and very attentive, since they realized the passengers couldn't get any peace or comfort due to the screaming child problem."
Cons: "Nine hour flight from Warsaw to Toronto, 7 hours of on and off ear-piercing screaming two year old child. Even though it was a daytime flight, most passengers wanted to sleep due to early morning wake up and previous connections. Even for somebody who wished to stay awake, there was nothing pleasurable about this situation. The airlines are going to have to figure out how to deal with this ever-increasing problem on long-distance flights, like a closed door quiet space for the parent and child. It was like being trapped in a torture chamber. If an adult had created that much commotion and misery on a flight, they would have been forcefully subdued and probably arrested. A few minutes of a crying baby can be excused, but this was non-stop disturbance by an unruly child and complacent parent(s)."
Pros: "Good leg room even is coach."
Pros: "with more than two hours delay and they changed the gates with little or no notice."
Pros: "Very nice crew! Kids were given a pilot's cabin tour. Good selection of food and drinks. Good on-board entertainment. On-time :)"
Pros: "Young air hostess was very goid"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Efficient flight got us there on time."
Cons: "Food was expensive."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was enjoyable was able to stream music and shows on my phone which helped the time fly by. Comfortable flight relatively smooth and comfy seats."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for a blanket or pillow? That's something I've never heard of. Crew was inattentive as I asked for someone to come by and collect my trash but no one ever came."
Cons: "Child behind me kicking seat entire time!!!"
Cons: "it was two hours late"
Pros: "You had the latest HBO shows"
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude in at check in to get onboard as I was one of the last passengers to board the plane."
Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."
Pros: "Arrival times for principle flight..."
Cons: "Long walks at Toronto..."
Cons: "It was very cold!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable airplane. Old."
Pros: "The meal provision and drink service was very speedy, seats were relatively comfortable. No on-board video was available only wifi service through personal devices."
Cons: "We had a delay for 1 hour 20 minutes after boarding with no air conditioning. My other Air Canada flights also had no air conditioning while awaiting takeoff, and it was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. The crew tried to make it better by bringing cold water around as we waited but it was unbearably hot for a solid 30 minutes."
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride. Small plane size did allow for quick retrieval of bags at final destination."
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer."
Cons: "Lost my luggage no food only 1 juice' lost my luggage Robbed me (tsa toronto) of some gifts they thought dangerous"
