Cons: "Plane was many hours late. Departure time not on terminal screen. Extreeeme delay on shuttle from United terminal. Sidewalk closed for construction. TSA Prechk not on boarding pass printout. No shuttle behind security from Term B to Term A. Plane left earlier than announced on notification apps. DCA website=6:25pm Final call at 5:47pm only word DELAY on term screen with 4:10time."

Pros: "Very good. No issues"

Pros: "Overall, the experience is fine. The flight entertainment selection is extensive for a short haul."
Cons: "Given that the entertainment selection is extensive, the connection ports are not working properly. Not all USB charging port and the power outlet port works as expected. The seat that I sat at does not charge and/or provide proper power."

Pros: "On time; efficient; great aircraft."
Cons: "A child threw up in flight behind my wife and the crew let the parents clean it up. I thought the crew should have been more proactive."

Pros: "Staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "everything went by fast, a lot of turbulence but the pilot kept us in check the entire time."

Pros: "That we survived and finally got our luggage the day after we arrived."
Cons: "1) That we went to Toronto, but our luggage went to Montreal. 2) That my wife had to stay up the whole night calling everyone in their call center to find out what happened to our luggage. 3) We were charged for selecting our seats in the flight reservation process. 4) We were misdirected by an Air Canada rep for our return flight and this caused us to miss our connecting flight as well. 5) We ended up spending more than 12 hours at the airport for flying from Toronto to Washington DC."

Cons: "The aircraft was so small there was not enough room for even most standard size carry-ons. The crew were not patient and gave passengers attitude for trying to bring their carry-ons onboard. On the way back from Toronto, we were sitting on the runway for more than one hour waiting for "de-icing". If this is a recurring thing, why not time the arrivals and departures better to avoid making people sit there, disconnected from everything and waiting? Also the screen on my "entertainment center" was broken but thankfully I had my own book to read. Air Canada has not had the most welcoming crew or most up to date fleet in my experience; I fly with them mostly because of their cheap fares. I guess "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch"."

Pros: "I usually have a smooth experience with Air Canada. Haven't had any problems on board. Unfortunately I had a bad experience with my baggage."
Cons: "The check-in person said my baggage (oversized, and a keyboard) would make it through to my final destination even though I had another flight on a separate reservation. I specifically asked because I wanted to know if I needed to pick it up when I landed after the first leg in Toronto. He said I'd only have to go through customs and my bag will make it all the way home to Vancouver. Well, I felt weird about it and when I got off in Toronto I noticed that my baggage receipt said Toronto on it (not Vancouver). I decided to forego the connections gate because I was unsure. Lucky that I did because lo and behold, my keyboard bag was waiting for me at baggage claim. Had I trusted the check-in guy, I would've possibly lost over $1000 worth of equipment. That's not something that can easily be forgiven."

Cons: "Narrow seats in business, insufficient recline, no extra pillows"

Pros: "Crew very friendly. In-flight refreshments & Entertainment provided."
Cons: "Cramp seats."

Pros: "No built in entertainment systems. YES PLEASE. Built entertainment systems take up room, sometimes have screens that can't be turned off, and some generate a lot of heat. So glad they were removed. The built in streaming service is a much better solution. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Just stop serving "food." Just stop. Rice, bread and brownies is really not gonna work. Just stop. Admit that any protein or fat is out of budget. Eat before your flight. Seats are not the most comfortable."

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the crew are super friendly. even on a little plane from DC-Toronto they had entertainment options which i wouldn't have expected. boarded quickly and landed on time. nobody bats an eye at my wife's weird beverage requests."
Cons: "the cabin of the plane on the return flight didn't have any air conditioning running during boarding and it was uncomfortably hot because it was about 85F outside. the crew only bothered to inform us of the issue when a poor hungover guy behind me asked about it because he was suffering... as were we all. plane didn't get comfortable until over 30 minutes in, at which point we were beginning our descent anyway."

Pros: "Ludovic was fantastic!"

Pros: "Nothing stood out as being too great. I was too pissed off from the delay to really notice any good."
Cons: "We were delayed about 2.5 hours. Ridiculous."

Pros: "Nothing! Unpleasant unhelpful crew at gate, no better onboard, absolutely moist cramped seating ever! Disorganized and late- boarding, departing, waited to disembark at arrival, 25 min before first bag off baggage......dreadful no one cares"
Cons: "Thank you for choosing Air Canada- smiles and goodbyes- where's all that Before you leave? They treat you like problem cattle to be dealt with, you're anonymous and valueless until you leave then they look at you and thank you?! Missing sincerity And service!"

Cons: "charged me for my bags; employees were surly."

Cons: "The plane was sitting at the gate for about an hour before we boarded (for a flight delayed by over an hour). Yet Air Canada didn't bother to go through the cabin and pick up garbage left in seat back pockets. The water in the washroom didn't work."

Pros: "Crew on the flight were very patient, understanding and friendly. Ground staff were the exact opposite. Agitated, temperamental and unwilling to help or find solutions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily the crews fault. But frustrating as our flight both to and from Washington was delayed both ways."

Cons: "Terrible flight. I should have driven instead. Flight was suppose to land at 12:30pm but due to computer malfunction we landed at 7pm."

Pros: "It was a good experience flying on Air Canada. The flight was on schedule, smooth flight, flight attendants were friendly."

Pros: "Love these guys. Moved a whiny baby away to a another row ;)"

Pros: "We got to destinations safely"
Cons: "I was worried that we won't make it to the land. I guess it was windy, but the plane was shaking too much"

Pros: "I loved the whole experience. The food was decent and the flight attendants were great and accommodated me with all my necessities. I also enjoyed the entertainment that was accessible on our personal screens and the entire flight was smooth."

Pros: "Nice and relaxing."

Cons: "Flight was delays from anotjer air company i had to paid 160$ to get on the next one.."

Pros: "nothing particularly spectacular. The entertainment on the place is much better than most (since most don't have it) for such short flights."
Cons: "The place was delayed for over an hour for a 'maintenance issue' - what I dislike is lack of information being shared from the plane to people at the gate. Also when we are delayed for the airlines fault - customers should be given something - anything - a small voucher, or even a drink ect., this is not a weather issue. I think airlines have too much power making most terrible at customer service - air Canada is one of the worst ones."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. Professional and attentive."
Cons: "The only real complaint I had was the over head compartment was much too high and I was too short to reach."

Pros: "Excellent service on board, and excellent neighbor passengers"
Cons: "Being unable to check in on line and being assigned a middle seat."

Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Terrible service."

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't as friendly or willing to accomodate"

Cons: "The flight from Vancouver to Seattle on the 31st of July was delayed by two and a half hours, the return flight on August 5 topped that by one hour resulting in a delay of more than three and a half hours and a missed connection flight to Port Hardy. I had to stay in Vancouver over night and my husband had to pick me up in Campbell River. This meant a car drive to and back Campbell River of six hours instead of one hour to Port Hardy."

Pros: "We got in a little early. More room than many in regular economy. All employees encountered pleasant and competent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind other than the normal air travel has led of security."

Pros: "Great route! I went to Italy and this has been by far the best route and airline choice. Friendly staff, nice layove in Toronto"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Had a technical difficulties 3 times in a row. Had to be cancelled and put on the next day and again same thing over and over. So missed all my connections. Cut short my vacation. Will never flight air Canada again."

Pros: "The food was very good and hot for being served last. We got blankets and pillows that was a plus."
Cons: "I was disappoint that we were not informed that we had to have wifi to use the entertainment system or rent iPads for $10.00. That is not right and your app. sucks to use. Please redo or get a new web person. So overall it was long a trip for people with children because they also had nothing for them to do. Fix this problem soon."

Pros: "First time on Air Canada - I was pleasantly surprised on how well my flight went... I will definitely travel on Air Canada in the future..."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Lines werent too bad, staff well-trained and great attitude to passengers, had entertainment system."
Cons: "There could be better access to snacks and drinks - came trhough twice on a long flight.entertainment system was so dark, hard to see."

Cons: "Not giving us an update on why the flight was delayed"

Pros: "Super polite crew"

Pros: "Same as stated above"

Pros: "Food and service."

Pros: "As thecflt time was short, i cannot say much but the leg room was ok."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything went well including the smoothness of the flight."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No leg room. No entertainment."

Pros: "The flight was canceled very close to departure time and I was bumped to a flight leaving five hours later. Missed my train connection in Montreal and had to rent a car and drive to Quebec. Since I go to Canada only rarely, I ended up essentially losing the money I spent for train fare and having to pay another $145 for the rental car. Got to Quebec at 11:30 p.m. instead of 3:55 p.m. Not happy."

Pros: "1) Skycap service for boarding at Reagan National was exceptional. I requested wheelchair assistance for this return flight and the attendant gave 100% service, getting me through security and on to the boarding gate lounge area in short order. He was very pleasant and very helpful. 2) The pilots did a good job of flying, The flight was smooth as was the landing. We left Reagan a few minutes late but arrived at Pearson 16 minutes early. I liked that!"
Cons: "1) I paid extra money for a "preferred seat" because my recent hip replacement surgery required that I have ample leg room while sitting. Leg room for the first row econonomy seat I got was barely adequate. I felt cheated out of the $15 I paid for the seat (which should have been complimentary, in my opinion 2) Food service was terrible. For a 1 o'clock flight, having to get to the airport 2-3 hours ahead of departure, meant that I was in need of some serious food, not the tiny package of pretzels and the cup of tea I got. Even a couple of cookies or a muffin would have been a better offering. 3) The wheelchair assistance that I requested did not materialize for me on arrival at Pearson. I felt so cramped from sitting that I was eager to get up and try to walk, no matter how slowly, the distance to Customs and through to the exit gate to wait for my ride home. That's what I did, and I never saw a wheelchair attendant coming with a wheelchair as I exited. That is poor service! I am comparing this to the excellent service I got with American Airlines on the first leg of my trip from Toronto to DC."
