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
Like most Air Canada (AC) flights, it was delayed. And in this case, there were luggage problems. Somehow someone else's luggage got assigned to my ticket so that created some confusion but was easy to resolve and I ended up having a nice visit with the people who's luggage was attached to my ticket. This is touchy subject for me as AC has lost my luggage many times (or the airport, I'm just not certain who to point at as I don't know) In flight was pretty standard, one lady was wonderful and the rest seemed mediocre in comparison. We landed in Toronto and had to wait on our gate, then pulled into our gate and spent an additional 30 minutes waiting for a ramp to get off the plane. I don't know who was at fault here, Pearson's horrible organization and terrible management or if AC didn't plan to have it there. To do better, more attention in the bag drop process would be good. Then hold the airport accountable for the lost luggage (I'm looking at you Pearson from the time you sent my domestic flight luggage to Turkey).
Need to be able to afford 1st class.
Flight was cancelled as soon as I landed in the airport. Had to scramble to find another flight home.
First time flying business and it was perfect!
Pros: "Got there"
Cons: "Way too expensive"
Cons: "All was as good as expected"
Pros: "I like the app to tell me where is my baggage. Thanks"
Cons: "More drinks, snacks"
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"
Cons: "Boarding not organize properly Letting passengers go from front to back not good"
Pros: "Overall it was a pleasant flight, satisfied"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Pros: "Riws nuch too close together. There should be a notice in the boarding area for passengers to download app so they can access on board movies. Or even better this should be included with ticket."
Cons: "Never been on a smaller plane. I've traveled private planes with more room!! Air was so bad, even the food smelled bad and couldn't even think of purchasing any. With a flight that long and people waiting for stand-by, you'd think a larger plane might be in order."
Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
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"
Cons: "Amenity kit in Premium economy sub par. Ear buds inadequate. Need noise cancelling headphones for the entire plane. On line "best price guarantee" is hogwash and completely untrue when tested."
Pros: "Size of seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Late leaving, slow baggage claim"
Pros: "Being the first passengers to exit the cabin after a 5 and a half hour flight is definitely a perk, as well as getting one's luggage (a priority tag is attached to them) immediately upon getting to the carousel, an other. Leg room and more space is also great."
Cons: "The only board menu was not exhaustive, considering one pays over $500 USD to move up to business class."
Pros: "Customs and immigration happens in Canada, not US"
Cons: "Delays, computer malfunction during boarding"
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
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: "Everything else."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled (still in toronto now) and confusion over the boarding pass made me think it was another 24 hours til we flew out."
Cons: "Terrible costumer service in toronto. Rude and yelling to people. 4 hours waiting on the line."
Cons: "The flight left almost 1 hour late because paperwork wasn't signed off"
Pros: "I flew in and out of Montreal to see if it was better than Newark or Philadelphia from upstate NY. It was all right. The food on Air Canada is not good AT ALL. The crew were very nice and had a good sense of humor. They were the best part. And at least I got an aisle seat--in the very last row of the huge plane. There must have been 500 people on board, and it was full to the gills."
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: "Flight attends were very attentive to all passengers. I especially liked that they kept everyone hydrated by offering drinks every couple of hours."
Pros: "Flight attendant, as with all the AC flights, was great!"
Cons: "Seats were old. Not great for business but it was a smaller plane and older, so understandable. My United Frequent Flyer number was not used on this flight and the counter agent did not know how to add my number so I never got credit for the miles."
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: "entertainment system was very good. Crew were fine. The flight itself was fine as well, no issues with weather, etc so it was just long."
Cons: "The boarding at Rome was chaotic. They give you a "zone" assignment but they never used it. People were just milling around trying to figure it out. Weird."
Pros: "The saftey"
Cons: "Crew absent at gate in Montréal on return flight which caused a 25 minute + delay. Entertainment system earjack was broken and I needed to hold my "earphone plug" higher in order to hear proper sound, otherwise nothing."
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"
Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"
Pros: "service in general"
Cons: "no covid separation at seats"
Cons: "The Florence Airport has difficulty with baggage. Had to wait for over an hour."
Cons: "Maybe the entertainment choices"
Cons: "Plane left without me. My record indicated 9am departure, but at 845 when I landed (late). The attendant confirmed that I had missed the plane."
Cons: "Departure was slightly late (passengers still exiting the plane when gate was called)"
Cons: "It was hard to keep the washrooms clean despite the effort"
Cons: "There is no entertainment which is ok. You had to pay for everything in flight. Their carry on luggage size allowance is smaller than any airline I’ve ever flown"
Pros: "Brussels airlines business class seats were the most comfortable I have sat in."
Cons: "The United airlines business class seats were too crowded with no privacy. You have to climb over your neighbor to to use the rest room."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Late boarding, had to check the bag, had to wait forever when landed in the plane"
Pros: "This particular flight was parked at the closest bay to immigration at Heathrow. So a late boarding and arrival was made early through not having a mile long walk to passport control."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding with the plane load of people huddled around the entrance to the boarding area. No guidance from the crew on how to efficiently pack the overhead bins efficiently with passengers helpless to put their treasures into the overhead bins."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight from Toronto to Houston. No reason given for late arrival. Yes, they gave me another flight...six hours later! Will be asking for compensation. At least for spending money on airport food. After arriving in Houston, i had already planned on renting a vehicle to my final destination. Because of first delay, i had to drive in the middle of the night and finally arrive at finat destination at 4 am on Oct 5. Im going to bed now."
Pros: "comfortable leg space"
Pros: "So so"
Cons: "But connecting flight is just 30 minutes delayed schedule because of airline benefits. I have to run the gate and I can make it but I heard 2 passengers didn't. I didn't hear this situation. When I ask staffs how about connecting flight to Nice, staffs just told me your flight is ok."
Pros: "Great wheel chair service"
Cons: "Polite customer service agent"
Pros: "The on board staff was very nice. That's pretty much the only thing that I liked."
Cons: "Just about everything. Not only were both flights delayed, one without notice, both the check-in and boarding processes were obscenely long with no obvious reason. On board, the staff was very pleasant but took almost 20 minutes to respond to a page and I only paged them one time. The screens for entertainment had a lot of trouble reading touch for both my seatmate and I and the selections were very limited. My seat did not recline which made for a very uncomfortable flight as I had hoped to be able to sleep. They lost one of my bags and somehow still have not found it more than 36 hours later."
Cons: "Very disappointing, Lufthansa airline sold my return ticket to another customers with out notifying me, so i’m stuck in here now and i have to find another ticket. And of course the flight is not refundable."
Pros: "They have the funniest and engaging safety video I have ever seen"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Beside for the music and movies, you should give us the possibility to make a search and find what we want to watch or listen"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and plane was comfortable."
Cons: "There were no free food or beverage options."
Pros: "Departure and arrival was on time"
Cons: "Very narrow and very uncomfortable seats. Didn't have any free snacks or drinks. I asked about free water, the crew even didn't offer to bring it. For free water you have to go to the back of the airplane to get a small cup. Didn't have any entertainment."
Cons: "I was not allowed to get on board even though the plane was sitting at the airport still and it was the airlines delay that I made me late."
Cons: "The flight was late. I was late for all my possible transport"
Cons: "Poor customer service."
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "I'll begin with the order of sequence of all that went wrong: 1. A huge queu while we were waiting for checkin in Rome (waited for more than 30 minutes) 2. The steward didn't agree to take a gymnastics hoop to the aircraft, despite its being super light. By the way, the inbound flight the hoop was taken into the aircraft; 3. We (family of 3) were seated separately, what made a huge stress to our small daughter. 4. There were no AC socket in Brussels airport (there were, but not charging) during transfer. 5. Our baggage was not delivered, which is very unpleasant :("
Cons: "Complete desinfprmation. No announcements and lack of support stuff. Worst airline experience ever"
Pros: "Problem was, my luggage didn't arrive. I am now in front of lost and found desk, expecting it will come one of next days. My additional problem is, I am traveling on Wednesday in remote area by car and need desperately my luggage!"
Cons: "I never flew to Florence because the airline missed my connection and the next flight to Florence was not until nearly twelve hours later, so now I'm on my way to Rome instead. This ruined my rental car and lodging reservations, and I'm now fighting both those agencies because of this botched flight and poor service. Additionally, the plane was ungodly hot. So much so that the crew apologized for our over the PA. Nothing was done to fix it, but it was blamed on the plane only being on auxiliary power while we were parked on the tarmac for the hours. That would've been understandable, but it didn't get better when the jet engines were on, so that excuse turned out to be just so many lies."
Cons: "This is a low cost airline. No food, no entertainment, At least the crew was polite."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the crew was friendly. Legroom was very good."
Pros: "The food served was wonderful, as well as service."
Cons: "What a surprise when our United Airlines codeshare on Brussels Airline did not even allow us a drink of water free on our two hour flight. They charged for everything including water. Shame on them! And shame on United Airlines to codeshare with a carrier with such poor customer service."
Pros: "Leg room seemed above average. Food was very good."
Cons: "Having games on the monitor is not a good idea because people are constantly pushing on your headrest!"
Pros: "The plane took off a few minutes late but arrived on time."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport at 4:30 for 6:25 flight and there were only 3 open windows to check baggage for 4 different airlines. There were over 200 people in line extending out the door and no one was present to explain what was happening. Soon additional clerks arrived and the line began to move, but it took 45 minutes. The gate area was not large enough for all the passengers and there were seats for only a few while we waited and waited."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Bathroom got gross"
Cons: "they lost one of my carry on bags and haven't been found"
Pros: "The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "My bag was lost. I was in Africa for 4 days before it finally came in. During the flight, there were several hours that we were never checked on or asked if we wanted something to drink."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "1st time on Brussels. Wonderful overall trip."
Cons: "The meal home was not so good."
Pros: "The service was only exceptional l, there weren't too many good movies selections.overall The turbulence made made the trip worse although the whether was very.l clear. There was also a weird background noise. Boarding was terrible had to wait an hour in a long line"
Pros: "The entertainment system is great and they provide a lot of food. The crew is very available and efficient."
Cons: "We had delays in Brussels because of a communication issue and because we were waiting on a vehicle to help us push off from the gate, which was a bit odd. The movie selection was good but a little outdated."
Cons: "It was ok flight - not full airplane - good"
Pros: "I liked the crew. They were really nice and spoke many languages. Even though my seat was in the middle I still was able to see out of the window."
Cons: "There was nothing:)"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "3 hour flight to Athens would have been much better if they at least offered water at no charge!"
Pros: "My flight was cancelled at midnight. It was delayed at least five times before we were notified it was cancelled. The staff was rude and mon accomidating. I had to cancel work. I'm tired and angry."
Cons: "United airlines"
