Cons: "Have kinder staff. Be more customer oriented. Be more like Westjet."
Pros: "Meal/drink service excellent, friendly crew."
Cons: "Boarding process confusing as groups 3-6 all lined up together. No air at seats."
Cons: "Entertainment screen in my seat didn’t work. Old plane."
Pros: "Crew was great, there was nobody sitting beside me so that was a big bonus. Smooth flight and the wine was pretty good."
Cons: "My flight was late arriving in Toronto no fault of mine then the aircanada security took over an hour to get through then they had been paging me and were rude when I finally made it to the plane again not my fault. Did not deserve the attitude!!!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful on a very full airplane. They did their best to check on connections to let us know if we were going to miss our flights or not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly an hour causing a very tight connection in Calgary."
Pros: "The onboard flight crew were very friendly."
Cons: "We were traveling with an infant and there was no pre boarding call. They took wheelchairs and then just started zone 1. The seats are so uncomfortable, it feels like a lot of the padding has been removed for weight. I am 6’2” and there is just not enough room to sit comfortably in a 3 seat row. If we can avoid flying Rouge , we do."
Pros: "Smooth from beginning to end, from checking bags, boarding and exiting. The crew was very pleasant and professional and I liked the option to watch movies on the trip"
Cons: "I paid for wifi and it didn't really work"
Cons: "AC was late causing a missed connection to YXE. They were unable to rebook us to Saskatoon for two or three days! They offered standby or Edmonton as our only options. We flew to Edmontonand then drove 6 hours in order to get home for work with no sleep. Unimpressed."
Pros: "The crew to San Francisco"
Cons: "canada rouge"
Pros: "The young competent Air Canada staff at the gate and her supervisor were kind enough to give me the last seat for the 11:45 am flight to Toronto on Dec 18th, 2017. After more than 24 hours stranded in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport due to power outage on Dec 17th, 2017, I was so relieved as I sat on my seat, when an air hostess asked if I would like a seat in business class. She said they randomly upgrade passengers to business class when seats are available. So it all ended well, I got home to Toronto safely in (business) class. Thank you Air Canada !"
Cons: "There were no Air Canada personnel to help us, inside the international terminal during the power outage at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport on Dec 17th 2017. It would have really helped, even if only one personnel showed up at the gate to provide support and some reassurance."
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I almost missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "I was able to change my flight to an earlier one saving me from having to wait 6 hours. I did not have to pay extra for changing my flight."
Pros: "I liked everything. The crew was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent."
Cons: "English subtitles for movie collections"
Cons: "the entertainment system on this leg of the flight didn't work at all! Give me a break!"
Pros: "the app so you can choose your own movies"
Cons: "very crowded. snacks werent very good or healthy"
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "The return flight to Orlando was just shy of 2 hours delayed. It was delayed 30 minutes prior to boarding. Then we sat on the plane, at the gate for over an hour. The plane was absolutely filthy. There was food on the seats, on the floor, smears on the window. It was disgusting and I could not wait to get if that plane. I will not be choosing air Canada in the future."
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Staff was extremely pleasant."
Cons: "Being charged for seat selection when I could not even select a seat. My seat didn't even have an outlet with USB jack next to the monitor like other seats. I had to use the old worn-out headset input jack on the armrest. Flights were delayed both directions."
Pros: "We had to sleep on floor of Toronto airport all night"
Cons: "Bumped from flight no compensation"
Pros: "Great crew, great food, seat was amazing."
Pros: "I don't like air canada"
Cons: "Check in crew was rude and awful. Flight cancelled without notification, thankfully the minute we noticed I called customer service. Waited an hour on hold before luckily grabbing 2 last seats on a flight going out the next morning."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"
Pros: "You fly a beautiful plane, the Boeing 787. Excellent entertainment, more comfortable seats, and just about everything on this plain was upgraded. It is a case study of how to do things right. The most impactful for me was air humidity. It was refreshing to fly and not feel like I've been in the Sahara desert at high noon. So, your starting point is really high, but you really need to look at your service."
Cons: "our flight was 40 minutes late in departing TLV. My connection in Toronto then was changed to a later flight, which was then delayed too by 50 minutes. all in all a 14 hour flight with connection ended up being close to 18 hours. My biggest two complaints about the flight itself is the food & the toilets. Your meals are the worst I've had in a major airline, and you should not serve customer frozen of close to frozen bread or sandwiches. If you are serving rolls, sandwiches or pitas, or bagels heat them up first. El-Al has been doing it for decades, go look at how they do it. But besides the bread/sandwiches issue, your meals are a really bad version of frozen supermarket meals. Just terrible all round. The other complaint is the bathroom. It was not cleaned frequently enough."
Pros: "It was a mostly empty flight, so there was plenty of space."
Cons: "The only bathroom was locked for landing, which I understand is a policy, however a woman sitting next to me REALLY had to go, and being at the back of the plane while everyone was leaving, could not go ask for it to be unlocked. I felt bad for her... Also, it was not clearly written or easy to understand where our gate was at Cleveland Hopkins. It was a small flight, but it could have been clearer."
Pros: "Since I got a bike accident the day before I took off, I had difficulty doing simplest things, and, exceptionally, I had a lot of baggage. All employees, especially at boarding at FLL, helped me very kindly. Although I travel a lot, I rarely have used Air Canada for 30 years, since the time a steward dropped hot water on my thigh. From now on, I will use this airline again."
Pros: "The Air Canada staff in Austin was wonderful. The flights from Ottawa to Toronto and back were fine."
Cons: "Problems that were, to be sure, not entirely the airline's fault. The trip from Toronto to Austin was delayed because someone had taken the flight attendant's bag from the overhead. We had to wait until either the bag was recovered or a new flight attendant was brought in. On the return flight, the first officer had ruptured her eardrum, and the plane could not leave Austin until a new pilot was flown in from Toronto. It took hours for the airline to arrange for hotel rooms. The airline then offered vouchers when we arrived in Toronto, but their representative brought enough for only about 2/3 of the passengers."
Pros: "Service was good and people were nice."
Cons: "Almost no room if someone puts their seat back, food was not good, made an emergency landing when passenger said he was fine and caused everyone to be delayed."
Pros: "On flight the flight and service was great. They need to work on the onboard section a lot."
Cons: "It was delayed for 2 hours not only they were late they didn't know the gate, I had to stop by the customer service they told me a wrong gate twice they didn't even announce. The most lower customer care I ever experience."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The crew was fabulous and the flight smooth."
Cons: "Not a single complaint from me!"
Pros: "organized crew & good service"
Cons: "there was no check in luggage with the ticket, I have to pay for both my check in luggage while flying back from Toronto to Saskatoon. Atleast one check in luggage should be there."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to pick my seat. I love the exit row."
Cons: "Being woken up. But it was for a good reason. Personal safety."
Cons: "Tell customers beforehand that they need to download the AirCanada app to use wifi. One is unable to download the app in flight, and so we are without internet."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I was flying Premium Economy, so it was tolerable, but my daughters were flying economy with very hard seats, very little room, no snacks and no entertainment. It was the Gulag! I can't imagine it being worse for them. On a short domestic flight, it may be tolerable, but for a long international flight across the pond, it was a nightmare! Also, please stop serving those hot pockets as a snack and please stop charging for potato chips and snacks unless you plan to serve a substantial meal! A 400 calorie meal is not going to keep anyone satisfied for 10 hours!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasent."
Cons: "Plane is so small my knees are in the back of the chair in front of me. I'm tall but this is the only airline I've had this issue with and I have flown a lot over the past 5 years."
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Free entertainment even though the flight was only three hours."
Cons: "Small, cramped plane with no free snacks."
Cons: "The system from the beginning was so unorganised ...went 2 hrs earlier even after online check in and it said u need to be there just an hour ..still had to run till the end.. Seat was so uncomfortable ..to add to the agony my luggage didn't arrive and had to wait till evening"
Cons: "Video screen was not working both times. And was charged for check in bag. $25. I didnt get it why i was charged even after paying $510 for a flight. I did web checking for inbound flight n had to pay $25 again. Not happy with that at all."
Cons: "My bags were lost and no one would give me contact information for how to track them down. The only number I was give has not had anyone answer after I have called many times over the last several hours"
Pros: "the whole process was great. staff at the airport and in flight were all friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Movies!! Newer plane too."
Cons: "The fact there was no entertainment system available for a 6hr international flight is a crime. Apparently there is some sort of app you need to download on a mobile device or computer BEFORE the flight, Would have made a huge difference knowing that."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Nice to be able to recharge mobile devices while seated."
Cons: "I made a round trip to Japan from Boston with Air Canada, flying out in mid-June and returning in the beginning of July, and I was rather disappointed to find that the choice of movies was more or less the same both ways, at least I did not see much change in new releases. I was expecting new movies to be added on my return flight from Japan since the month has changed from June to July but I did not find new movies, so I just read on my iPad. It would have also been nice if there was an option for inflight WiFi access."
Cons: "Cramped very crowded plane."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Not even a pretzel with a soft drink or coffee. Also coffee was lukewarm."
