Check in process was absolutely horrible. I've never had such a bad experience. They were say8ng I needed to complete a form rhey didn't even know what it was or what it was for. Then another Staff member was extremely rude to me for no reason. Started almost yelling at me and told me to stand back. I was not talking loud or rude at all and she just treated me terribly. I heard her treat others with attitude as well. Another one said we needed to all get on our flights on time so they didn't have to work overtime again!! As someone who works in Healthcare where you can be mandated overtime and redeployed I found this very unprofessional and unnecessary to tell all the customers this!!
It was a great flight did not eat a meal on the plane
Need to be able to afford 1st class.
Not to buckle and dime passengers with fees, check bag fee, aisle fee, etc. I paid for tixs with mileage plus business card and I should have gotten 1 free bag per person but was charged 30 per bag and they were small bags
First time flying business and it was perfect!
Pros: "Got there"

Pros: "On time, great cabin crew"
Cons: "Q400 is cramped, noisy and awful overhead storage"
Pros: "On time, crew was cheery!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat - great service"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The overhead bin space of this airplane was too small. My suitcase, which fits on every other type of plane, could not fit on this one. I had to check it and then go grab it at baggage claim, therefore having to go through security again. This was not the most convient for a tight connection."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "Cancelled one flight, then delayed another one because they were waiting for a pilot. They offered very little help, citing that they couldn’t control the weather, meanwhile WestJet is finding & paying for rooms, shuttle buses and taxis to make the delay more tolerable and less stressful. We could only watch and wish we were flying WestJet."
Cons: "I don’t like the head games air Canada plays when they know the flight is probably not going to leave for three hours and they purposely don’t update the flight details. Only update every 20 minutes for a three hour delay...."
Pros: "Plesant ride"
Cons: "Flight took longer to depart due to boarding and de-icing"
Pros: "Size of seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Late leaving, slow baggage claim"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "This was a +10 hour trans Atlantic flight. We walked on and immediately noticed there were no TV screens. I expected that the crew would be handing out portable screens instead which would have been ok but pretty inconvenient. This was not the case. We asked the crew and were told that to have entertainment for the flight we would have to download the Air Canada flight into our OWN devices and connect to the airplane wifi. They also explained that you can't download the app while connected to the airplane wifi so anyone who wanted entertainment had to scramble to download the app while we were still on the ground and Use cellular data! at this point 300 people were either panicking because they didn't have a personal device with them, didn't have a charger for their device and so would have power issues or were forced to use up roaming data because they had non Canadian phone plans!!! At the very least staff should have told passengers about this setup while they were waiting at the gate, so that people would have time to download the app with airport wifi! add to all this the fact that the app was extremely low quality and the options for movies/show were disappointingly dated and limited. This was not officially a cheap low cost flight for my family but the service we got certainly would categorize it as such. Very disappointed."
Cons: "As soon as I got on the plane everything was fine but this flight was also delayed by an hour and I had my relatives waiting for me. On top of that they sent my bag to Buenos Aires which was the planes next destination. My bag was eventually brought to my home. Overall the experience with Air Canada has been horrible. And I lost 2 full days because of the airlines' delayed flights."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Cons: "I booked my flight from Vancouver to Kiev The first flight it's to Toronto then to Kiev.. and when Went to the counter in Kiev they said sorry but Turkish airline didn't send my booking to kanda airline so I missed all my flight schedule I didn't wait I bought another ticket to Kiev in the same date on Lufthansa airline And it cost me like 1945c$"
Pros: "Overall it was a quick and painless flight. The crew was friendly and we had no problems!"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "Late departing and on arrival the ground crew wasn't available so we were stuck on the plane awaiting their arrival. I can't understand scheduling issues that end up leaving jets stranded."
Pros: "Very pleased from take off to landing"
Pros: "Good leg space very comfortable sitting and entertainment television."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and efficient. I like the personalized TVs"
Cons: "We left a bit late due to mechical difficulties. My light didn't really shine in the right direction. - too dark to read."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Being blasted through my headphones by the captains announcements indifferent cabin crew. How poorly boarding was managed by AC. There was absolutely no effort made to enhance a boring flight with food or drink unless you paid for it.I guess AC does not consider it an international flight from the US to CA and visa versa which saves them a lot of money and works only in their favor. Why I,m even bothering to fill this in."
Cons: "They boarded early while our connecting flight was late. They told us they could not allow us in even though we arrived 1 hour before. Had to purchase all new tickets."
Cons: "The flight left almost 1 hour late because paperwork wasn't signed off"
Pros: "Nothing in particular. We got here safely. That's good."
Cons: "1 bathroom for long flight. Ridiculous. Very tight and uncomfortable seats. No pillows, blankets, food and drink service only 1 time in long flight and all food is purchased. Basically, an exercise in human torture for 5+ hours. Should not be permissible to treat people this way."
Cons: "The plane was too old Did not prepare enough food No free snacks"
Cons: "2h and 4h30 h late"
Pros: "Seating was fine on their "normal" flights."
Cons: "Regarding Air Canada Rouge service: If you are over 6' in height your knees will not fit in the assigned space."
Pros: "cruising slightly high to avoid turbulence, the way from Toronto to Winnipeg we were flying on altitude 26,000 and then 30,000 feet. on west jet we were flying on altitude 39,000 feet with less turbulence. thanks"
Pros: "Leg room is comfortable"
Cons: "Flight had one and half hour delay. I did not get E-mail reminder for Check-in, for my return flight from Toronto."
Pros: "They've replaced the ridiculous entertainment system with a much better one."
Cons: "Unwise cost-saving efforts in the Vancouver Maple Leaf Lounge - obscure magazines only, croissants/pastries replaced with a loaf of bread, etc."
Pros: "The saftey"
Pros: "Check in was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was 4 and half hours late for weather and mechanical reasons. Airline responded very well but such a long delay is annoying"
Cons: "The aid line lost one bag of mine, should have back today..."
Pros: "Crew was great very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better movie and tv show choices would be good for long flight"
