Pros: "On time, crew was cheery!"
Pros: "It was canceled"
Pros: "Comfortable seat - great service"
Cons: "2,5 hours delayed. Econ seats are tiny with zero legroom."
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Pros: "Crew was polite within their constraints for food, drinks and entertainment system."
Cons: "- Long delay (3+ hrs) due to technical problems - Food was mediocre at best - Entertainment system was not working for a 10-hour flight - No personal screens, you had to use your phone or tablet, downloading the app did not work and the charging outlet for my phone was not working."
Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "There wasn't anything that stood out that I could say I liked."
Cons: "I didn't care for the attitudes if the stage working in the Toronto airport. Things really aren't clear there for first-timers and much of the staff was acting like I should already know to do a lot of things when there weren't any clearly posted signs saying so. There is also a huge lack of organization."
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: "Comfortable seats, friendly crew."
Cons: "Almost two hours delay each way."
Pros: "Nice crew and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Exceptionally small seats and warm temperatures made overnight flights challenging. They do not offer free alocohol on international flights. But the worst part of the flight was the entertainment situation. There are no tv screens on the plane. They wait to tell you until after you've taken off that you can download the air Canada app to stream their selection of tv and movies to your personal devices. Once you do, they'll explain to you that it's really hard to get the streaming to work properly because so many people are trying to use it at the same time, but don't worry - they have preloaded iPads available ... for rent. It feels like a blatant cash grab on top of an already disappointing flight experience."
Cons: "Grouchy attendants....even though I did my best to stay out of their way or interact positively, they were determined to be brusque and uncooperative. I understand they have a tough job to do, but pushing past people who are in the process of getting out of their way (even holding a baby!) is uncalled for. This happened not once, but 3 or 4 times in the course of the flight to my traveling companion and me."
Pros: "Fast boarding, no delays."
Cons: "I always fly Air Canada but I guess I wasn't aware that Air Canada Rouge was a completely different species. No entertainment at all. When we got on the plane, the sun was shining through the window & floating in the air was a mind-boggling amount of dust, feathers, etc.. flying all around... like the air was completely FILLED with them.. you couldn't get a breath of oxygen. This irritated my respiratory system immensely. They also had children helping out the flight attendants which was cute, until the one girl who had just served water to the entire plane broke out into an awful fever. They were putting ice packs on her head, giving her meds, & eventually she had to get carried through the airport. This was 5 minutes after serving water to an entire plane of passengers. I ended up getting extremely sick & missed almost a week of work. Not sure if this was the cause, but it makes sense. I will make sure 100% to never fly air canada rouge again. For $400 a ticket... doesn't make sense to experience this."
Pros: "We flew to Toronto on the rebooked flight and we were treated very badly by the gate agent who simply told us: Go see customer service, you are not on this flight' without even an attempt to explain why we could not get on to the flight to London. I think they do not respect their customers. Very disappointed with Air Canada' service."
Cons: "Nothing about our trip to London on Air Canada was positive. We had requested vegetarian meals for all our flights. They did not provide us any food on the flight because they did not have our names on the list for Vegetarian meals on the rebooked flight. Our experience with Air Canada was everything that is the worst in airline travel and customer service."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat"
Cons: "The plane sat on the runway in Denver for over an hour because they couldn't figure out their furling situation. Many people nearly missed connections because of this. The crew never let us get up to go to the bathroom on an international flight because of some small turbulence."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Pros: "at least we wereat a part of the wedding"
Cons: "first flight scheduled april 20 at 12:05pm cancelled. second flight for 4:15pm to laguardia cancelled. excuses for cancellation were given but not to our satisfaction. as a result we missed a good portion of the wedding we attended in new jersey"
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: "We been flying discount airlines out of Bellingham for the last few years. How ever with the exchange rate now we decided to fly Air Canada this time. OMG what a difrence great seats more room and great service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, no delays"
Cons: "The food was so awful and very unhealthy! No TV for entertainment on our 9 hour international flight was absurd. Lastly, we purchased the tickets together, when we checked in, our seats were not together on both the flight to and from Italy, thankfully other people switched seats with us. When we asked the flight crew at the desk to switch seats, they couldn't both times. We definitely will not be flying Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "The flight left almost 1 hour late because paperwork wasn't signed off"
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: "The crew treated me very well. I had reasonable leg room in economy class. The plane was beautiful, clean and super modern, one of the nicest aircraft that I have flown with in many years!"
Cons: "I ordered Asian vegan meals, but I was very disappointed with was presented to me. The food looked awful, tasted bland and insipid! I hope that that problem will be rectified on my return to the US."
Pros: "good"
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."
Cons: "The final leg of our travel boarded over 2 hours late. No compensation given for that. Two planes were declared not fly worthy-low confidence. While not Air Canada's responsibility, Toronto's Pearson Airport was awful. We went through many airports on our travels and this stood out as the worst. Constant security checks that seemed unnecessary. Poor line management. Not enough security/immigration kiosks. Very expensive food. During our 2+hour delay for boarding, we observed constant gate changes for other flights. Flight organization seems poor."
Pros: "You want comfort? this is the way to go."
Cons: "Entertainment on short flight was limited."
Cons: "Same movies"
Pros: "I usually fly United via Newark, but this entirely made me rethink my strategy! Great service, food, luggage delivered on time, even the pain of going through CA immigration was avoided by a smart detour of transit passengers."
Cons: "Very long lines for US security, rude US personnel."
Pros: "The saftey"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "They are so incompetent that they had us arriving in Germany on May 3 and connecting on May 2. We had to have the ticket rewritten TWICE."
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: "I liked the Air Canada flight crew. They were all helpful and friendly. The flight was late leaving Toronto due to Florida weather issues and the crew did a good job keeping us informed and as comfortable as possible during the wait."
Cons: "Very little room in the seats. I am a man 5' 9" tall so I am average height. I barely had leg room and even less so when the person in front of me reclined his seat. Made the 3 hour trip feel a little uncomfortable. I miss the "back of the seat" entertainment system although the option through Air Canada's app worked fine,"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "On time or early"
