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
The gnocchi (and the tomato sauce) was dry !
Need to be able to afford 1st class.
First time flying business and it was perfect!
Pros: "Got there"
Cons: "Way too expensive"
Pros: "The crew that greeted us (and sorted out seats) was excellent."
Cons: "We had booked seats together two months before our trip; when we checked in (both legs are Star Alliance, but Air Canada—one leg both directions—did not allow any on-line seat choice or changes), we had been separated to different rows altogether (and since it took two Air Canada trips to get from Vancouver to Denver; the first had mechanical difficulties an hour into the trip and had to return), and there was no way to change it online or at the airport."
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: "The flight was late arriving, so consequently we had to pay a taxi to hotel, as shuttle had finished for the night. Air Canada staff let people know 10 mins prior to boarding that we needed the app to view movies in-flight. Most people couldn't download quick enough, & airport Wifi was not optimal"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Pros: "Thank goodness there was lots of room on this plane, makes it much nicer"
Cons: "Old plane, and business class is just ok. So sad that Air Canada is only flying this route with Rouge... they just are ok. Boarding was a gong show - they blocked off the area with little posts to keep people organized and were boarding a big flight to Tokyo right beside us. Horrible."
Cons: "They wouldn’t wait 10 minutes for us to arrive on our incoming flight."
Cons: "Again very disappointed. No food, no flight monitoring and no tv access. Felt very "cheep". Cop o see idea far far better."
Pros: "Flight was ok overall. Staff were nice."
Cons: "I don't think there was enough crew on board to serve all the passengers. Water was only offered once. I did get to watch free movies from Vancouver to Toronto. However, you had to pay for entertainment from Toronto to Costa Rica"
Cons: "Delay in YUL...5 mins turned into 60...almost missed travel in SJO to final destination"
Pros: "Once on plane all OK"
Cons: "Check in unhelpful to being rude by ignoring people and avoiding getting advice from higher ups. Worst service I Have experienced in 60 years of air flight three times a year ,at least"
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "No movies"
Pros: "Disable passenger here. They were very helpful and accommodating"
Pros: "We were given a $10 meal voucher in Toronto for the 2hr delay, nothing was done for us in windsor after waiting close to 5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Windsor to Toronto for hours the. Again from Toronto to San José."
Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Crew on flight from Toronto to San Jose were friendly. Crew on home flight very aloof."
Cons: "Did not know you should pre book food. They ran out. Very frustrating. Said they had breakfast food and snacks. All that was left by the time they got to our seats were chips and nuts. And they didn’t seem to care. Entertainment worked better on way back. Could not get it going on way there, even with crew assistance. Line ups for check in in San Jose were crazy. Over 40 minutes."
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: "we had a very good seating distance in row 15"
Cons: "the cabin service was simply bad: very limited meal offerings, drinks were not cold, flight attendants were pretty arrogant."
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: "nothing was impressing about Air Canada"
Cons: "Seats was not comfortable."
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: "Seat were comfortable (however the struggle is when you have someone with long legs behind you...)"
Cons: "Entertainment was using the app, they could have had a sign at the gate so those of us that didn't have it could have download it before boarding."
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."
Cons: "This is not an Air Canada flight, is a Rouge flight, meaning there is no service, no screens, not even blankets on board. I didn't know that until after confirming my reservation, and it makes all the difference. For a low cost flight, the service is ok, but it shouldn't be advertised as Air Canada at all."
Cons: "- No drink service offered on the second flight - Hard seat in coach, very uncomfortable flight, won't fly Air Canada ever again"
Pros: "Air Canada Cancelled the flight, which would have been ok, but their representatives left the airport instead of sticking around to help people reschedule. Their phone line was flooded with so many calls that you couldn't even stay on hold. And their email service takes at least 24hrs before you get a response. So effectively the entire airline was unavailable, even after canceling many people's vacations. I'll never fly AC again."
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: "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: "The saftey"
Pros: "short flight with a good seat. fast baggage service"
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"
