Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew, prompt take-off and boarding / de-planing"
Cons: "Seats were dated and uncomfortable"
Cons: "AC would always delay"
Cons: "Boarding in the rain is definitely not a good experience! The flight delayed so long that some of us who had connecting flights had to run from gate to gate (including clearing Canada customs) within 20 mins. Last but not least, Taipei Taiwan should NOT be listed as China."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lady at check in, Helen, at Pearson was TERRIBLE. No compassion for us travelling with a 2 month old baby, and then booked our seats with united in separate locations with no bassinet. I will never use air Canada Again."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable some of the crew were nice though not all"
Cons: "The food was horrible. Entertainment was limited. The boarding process is terrible. Staff needs to learn to smile more."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt stay reclined. I spent the hole flight pressing the button back. During the night I needed the assistance of the flight atendent. I had to press the button three times so that anyone could come to me. Didnt find the crew very willing to repeat some needed information about the food too. The airplane was full and simply there werent enough toilets for this amout of people there. Honestly, it was a terrible experience."
Pros: "Liked legroom in the emergency row and the quality of the new entertainment system."
Pros: "If there is good weather, everything will run smooth and on time."
Cons: "Be aware of the snow... My flight from YUL (Montreal) to FLL was delayed 4 hours!! The inbound flight was diverted to Toronto just because of ONE inch of snow in Montreal Airport."
Pros: "Our connecting flight was cancelled due to weather. That is truly out of the airline’s control. What is in their control is communicating the status of the flight with us. When we checked in they took email addresses and cell phone numbers for status updates. We never received any updates. Consequently we didn’t know the flight had been cancelled until it was too late to make an adequate adjustment. On top of that we had to deal with the worst customer service rep in the world at the ticket booth when we struggled to make alternate plans. Completely unsatisfactory experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, kind, and friendly."
Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"
Cons: "Power outlet's didn't work"

Pros: "I watched incendies and lion and both were great films so I commend your film options. The crew were all pleasant and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "The chairs have no low back support. I rolled up my sweater and put it behind my low back because the chair is so poorly designed. It seems to encourage a slouched position. maybe you have it that was to encourage people to upgrade their tickets. I hope that's not the case as that would be cruel."
Cons: "I don't remember anything from sleeping too much."
Cons: "They made me sky check my small second roller bag. Not a problem for me as I had a three hour layover in Copenhagen. But others had tight connections and got the same treatment. There was lots of available overhead room in the 'business class' area. The seats suck. They are not business class. Exactly the same as economy just at the front of the aircraft."
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked to Wednesday."
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked on Wednesday. I could walk faster."
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly"

Pros: "Professional fight attendants, very nice."
Cons: "The flight took off late but most of the lost time was made up during the flight time."

Pros: "service, friendly attendants, amenities"
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. AC put us in a hotel for the night. Thanks for the $15 dinner voucher. Almost paid for the salad. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."
Pros: "Flight timings were perfect for my schedule. Boarding and departure were timely as well."
Pros: "Liked being distracted by a free movie."
Cons: "- Delayed from take off for over two hours. During this time, pilot and flight attendants shared minimal information with passengers. - At one point, I asked a flight attendant for water because I had a migraine and wanted to take some Advil. He told me he couldn't right now because the pilot wanted everyone in their seats, but he would get it for me as soon as possible. When I followed up 45 minutes later, the same flight attendant apologized and said that it was because he didn't want everyone asking for waters. We were stuck on that plane for over two hours, and you can't get people water? - Gate check was not available, meaning that I had to check my carry-on when there was no more space available (my bag met the carry-on size requirements)."
Cons: "Flight was from FLL to YUL."
Cons: "No legroom. None. Feels like spirit airlines."
Cons: "it was a horrible experience and i will never fly with air canada again. best of luck"

Cons: "During a short flight there is not much to experimented and less to comment."
Pros: "crew was awesome"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible."
Pros: "The flight from DC to Toronto was late around four hours and after we got on the plane We went back and we were waiting at the airport while get more fuel and which repaired the fault on the plane. so I was late for my next flight to FrankfurtSo I was put on a flight to Frankfurt with a connection in Lisbon.In the end, my suitcase was lost and I got it only two days later. Never I will no longer use AirCanada small planes !"
Pros: "The aircraft was very new and the food was good for airline food and they had vegetarian options."
Cons: "The boarding process was very unorganized. Roughly 20 people were not assigned seats and had to receive their seats at the gate. However when we all stood in line, the crew did not help anyone but talked with one another and then only one helped for about two minutes before disappearing. I was second in line and I stood there for over 30 minutes. Then once we boarded the flight, the crew was very rude when speaking to customers. Overall the crew was very unorganized and extremely rude."
Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Entertainment console didn't work"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and didn't even tell me a reason. They couldn't even make reservation for hotel. Hotel sent me back to airport because i didn't have voucher which AIr Canada guys said they can't make one? Everything didn't make sense. And they told me not to come again. They took like... whole day to book another flight. And i had hard time understanding what they were saying."
Pros: "On the whole it was a pleasant experience despite the flight being late."
Cons: "I thought that the flight being delayed by almost 2 hours was terrible. That should not have happened."
Pros: "Nothing - they were immature, unprofessional, nervous, unhelpful, and visibly shaken by relatively side problems."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours but not technically cancelled, which the ground crew blamed upon the flight crew and vice versa. The failure to cancel caused us to be unable to rebook, and subsequent avoidable delays arising from Air Canada's ineptitude caused us to be two,days late for arrival. The problem was solvable with some simple rebooking, but the ground,crew failed to assist, then the flight crew, when we finally left five hours late, was Impersonable, unhelpful, uninformed, and utterly unprepared. It was a terrible, second rate, poor quality experience and I would not recommend Air Canada to anyone. Your airline needs serious training in Professionalism and responsiveness."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating and the flight itself was great"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay and almost missed our connection"
Cons: "1. Flight left late. 2. After landing sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for gate. 3. After arriving at gate, had to wait 15 minutes to open door. 4. Poor service assisting me to get to connecting flight on other side of airport."
Cons: "I was not able to board this flight. And it was such a disappointment and a shocking first for me. I reached the airport and on being checked at the counter, I was told that I cannot board because I don't have a Canadian visa. It was shocking to learn that I needed visa for a 1.5 hour layover. The website should give a prompt or should share the requirements. And all my ticket money got wasted."
Pros: "The ground crew were always nice and friendly. They worked hard to deal with delayed flight, missed connection, and tight alternate connection. Flight crew were also friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Four-hour flight delay released in one hour increments without announcement -gate displayed "on time departure" for the duration of the delay. Our hassles were compensated with meager meal vouchers given too late, There was no pre-boarding on our flight (just one big cattle call) which made boarding with child and gear extra awkward,"
Cons: "Seating is too tight"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed and we were not kept informed. In fact, the airport boards still displayed that this flight was on time, which was not correct. I kept getting emails of a change in schedule, but no reason was given by personnel at the gate. This was really a bad situation for me as I was meeting my daughter in Toronto who was flying alone with her infant son and she needed my help."
Cons: "Worst shittiest experience! Delayed by 3 hours"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "Crew, leg room, and entertainment."
Cons: "We had to be redirected because the plane's instrument landing system (ILS) failed. We were redirected to another airport where they had to make repairs and then fly back from Geneva to Zürich Switzerland. It made for a very long flight."
Pros: "No e service"
Cons: "Food was not included entertainment was not include at that price"
Pros: "Rebooked me a nonstop flight to my destination!"
Cons: "Delays. O'Hare. United. Storms and air traffic control. Looking all across the board, it didn't look like anyone was leaving Chicago anytime soon."
Cons: "loudspeaker was way too loud - my hearing was fine before the flight...."
Pros: "I was returning from an international flight, and had carried my smallish rollerboard +1 personal bag all through (including outbound) with no problems. Just on the last leg, IAD to RDU, the gate agent forced me to check the bag, even though the flight was not full, and the bag could easily fit in the overhead bin. I was in Group 3."
Cons: "Forced to gate check rollerboard for no reason."
Pros: "every seat come with tV"
Cons: "Disappointed that few come with closed caption. Lousy choice of menu"
Cons: "Extremely noisy inside the smaller jets. Can't hear anyone or anything."
Pros: "My daughter was given assistance when needed."
Pros: "No delays, everything went smooth"
Cons: "I bought tickets for a Lufthansa flight with a Lufthansa flight number and confirmation notice, only to wait in line to find that it was a United flight and United didn't list the baby's ticket number that was in the Lufthansa confirmation! lost an hour resolving ticket issues. When I pay for Lufthansa tickets, I expect to have a Lufthansa flight with their great service."
Pros: "Did a good job of keeping us hydrated during the flight"
Cons: "The seltzer water is plain not lemon flavored as advertised in the magazine"
Cons: "1. Delayed flights- I took a round trip SFO-IAD. Both my flights were delayed by 3 hours each. Reached my destination at odd hours and was never compensated. 2. Not apologetic !"
Cons: "Flight delayed in Washington, then after we boarded sat on a hot plane for an hour while flight crew did "training". United never apologises for delaying flights, seems like they don't care for the customers at all."
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "The flight was on time and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and it became one of the most chaotic ordeals to get from Newark to Seattle."
Cons: "Late full lounge bad food"
Pros: "Crew was great and accommodating due to hour delay"

Cons: "It is outrageous that those seats and that legroom is legal. Something has to change!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours. In 15 minute increments so we kept thinking we were leaving and then it kept getting delayed. Almost missed my brother's graduation from basic training. Not pleased. I would like some kind of compensation for this. Also I am flying back now and my flights have been very delayed and I will arrive at least seven hours later than planned."
Pros: "I didn't like anything. The only positive was the polite crew . The flight was terrible. The conditions was very bad."
Cons: "Bad conditions. Bad flight. Delayed and the airport is terrible . Thank you for the safe flight. But please upgrade the services"

Cons: "Late departure."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."

Pros: "I loved how quickly we departed and arrived at each destination!"

Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "same comments as above"
