It had nice leg room and plenty of space for luggage and carryon items. The bathrooms are nice and plenty of little snacks if you want. they are on time.

The food was just ok. Cold food was way too cold and hot food wasn't very hot. Butter was solid so you can't really spread it on your bread. The drinks are in tiny cups and they don't have cans, so you have two sips and have to hunt for more. The movie selections are limited and it is the same coming and going. Also it was really dumb to not allow us to have water boarding the plane as we just filled up our water bottle right by the boarding gate and you have to go through another bag search and no water? Like I said, with the little cups they give you, I really needed my water bottle. Also nobody was watching the shuttle bus, they keep sending people to board like sardines.

The extra $50 seats were roomy.

Flight was delayed and no one knew why!... Plane had been sitting ready at the airport for hours. Novice flight attendants, they each picked on different things others missed just before them. No consistency, seats left reclined during takeoff and landing for example. One way there was drink service once even though it was a smooth flight and the return had drink service twice even though it was bumpier! Entertainment does NOT work on androids, it is NOT the AirCanada app they tell you to download prior to the flight, it's an AirCanadaRouge.pk file that needs to be downloaded in flight! Which means we're stuck paying for the iPad and of course only with cc because there's no wifi for debit cards.... AC needs to stop this insanely mediocre and yet expensive monopoly.

Everything was good

One Stu artist who was a older women she was very grumpy, there was little to no turbulence the whole flight and if you got up to go to the washroom and we’re waiting and seatbelt light came on she would make u sit down immediately even if it wasn’t that rough, she made a girl wait for the washroom for 45. Minutes was kinda pathetic, when she was on her shift break not one person had a issue with any of the other flight attendants only her

I think the air quality on the flight from Toronto to Seoul was bad. I felt really neaseous for most of that flight and thought I would be sick on the landing. the illness went away completely once I landed and I didn’t experience it on the Asiana flight from Seoul to Phuket

Decent boarding group, same snacks, same flight attendants (who were very nice)

My only gripe is that paying for an assigned seat is only allowed 48 hours before takeoff and costs at least $30, twice what Spirit charges to allow you to select a seat during booking, so it is worse. No one watched us to ensure that we didn’t use the overhead bins (a stipulation of the fare) but we did comply anyway. We chose to take our chances and were assigned seats at the gate 16 rows apart and both in the middle seat.

You have personally screens with a pretty good selection of entertainment options which was a plus considering the length of our flight. They serve you alcohol, including hard liquor, which was another great perk especially if you want to pound a few and sleep for your trip. Not sure if this is offered for every flight, we were on a 12 hour international flight.

Crew members did not have good attitudes, and it was clearly written on their faces. Crew needs to be better trained in service, not once did I see them smile when a passenger requested something. Seats were uncomfortable - for any flight over 5 hours, you will definitely feel aches for a few days. Boarding was slow and our flight to our destination was delayed 4 hours. Really need to improve their boarding process.

Business class. New airplane. The flight arrived reasonably on time. Pleasant staff.

Business class. Staff not experienced, not trained, Incapable of delivering the service on an orderly basis. Staff had to be constantly reminded of Order. I have written to the company. It is interesting that the company gets a B787 but buys seats that are two generations ago. Not as comfortable as the competition outside mainland China.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
