Pros: "My flight was canceled"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "No hot water available so no coffee or tea. CRJ on a "western commuter" route is highly unusual."

Cons: "I was made to pay for my carry on because of weight. I didn’t understand that when I booked. I am also certain that many other carry ones were more than 12 kilos."

Pros: "Overall, the experience is fine. The flight entertainment selection is extensive for a short haul."
Cons: "Given that the entertainment selection is extensive, the connection ports are not working properly. Not all USB charging port and the power outlet port works as expected. The seat that I sat at does not charge and/or provide proper power."

Pros: "The trip was a smooth and on time."
Cons: "The lack of finesse and discretion among the crew. The food quality was poor."

Pros: "Upgraded to business class."

Cons: "This was an overnight flight but for those of us in the back of the plane (near this staff hangout section) there was no rest. They were speaking loudly, sometimes over each other, as though at a house party for the duration of the 5 hour OVERNIGHT flight. This isnt the second time I have flown long distance with Air Canada and the 'frat party' in the back occurred on both flights. The first time was much worse-12 hours from Seoul to Toronto- with the party going on the entire time. LOW BUDGET service and attitude at major carrier prices."

Cons: "Flight was more than hour delayed. When it hit the turbulence zone it was insanely scary. I know it's nobody's fault but leaves bad felling about the flight."

Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."

Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."

Pros: "The flight arrived about 30 minutes early. Also, it left a little late. For me, the less time on the plane the better."
Cons: "Guy next to wanted to charge phone a laptop in USB port in front of me b/c his was our of order. This worked out OK but in a small space it's not so good. He was bare foot too. Take of your shoes but wear socks, please....Plane was not hot, actual a litter chilly."

Pros: "Service flight on time food"
Cons: "No movies for 7 hour flight"

Pros: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Air Canada used to be one of the best airlines in North America now I would rate them as one of the worst! Every since they started the air Canada rouge flights. Most uncomfortable seats in the business. Also staff from call center to check in are rude and act like they are doing you a favor."
Cons: "Direct flight"

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Horrible customer care"

Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."

Cons: "Our flight got canceled 12 hours before we were supposed to take off. They postponed our flight 24 hours. It took forever to change it so that we still arrived at our destination on the same day. I'm glad I checked my email before going to bed because otherwise I would have shown up to the airport not knowing my flight was canceled. That should not have happened. It almost ruined my trip."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "When someone has a terrible experience with a single individual it's just an anomaly. When it came to our experience it's easy to see that it's systemic and come from the top down in that company. The lack of customer service training is apparent. It was rampant and the overall feeling was just plain rudeness exuding from every team member. I'll never fly Air Canada again."

Cons: "Had to have a visa for connecting flights. Not worth going through Canada."

Pros: "I thought prices were reasonable."
Cons: "Didn't have some of the food."

Pros: "The media system TV shows were good and the seats were comfortable. The flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process was not good and seemed a bit disorganized. There were few movies offered on the onboard entertainment system."

Pros: "The courtesy of the attendants. Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The leg room."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"

Pros: "Staff was very accomodating"
Cons: "No snacks, and that on a long flight and a flight over the Christmas holidays. Although I was lucky to get a good price to fly to Maui with my adult daughter,, as a senior citizen and a person on GIS, a little snack goes a long way."

Pros: "everything was perfect"

Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers the best service and the most relaxing flights."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food not so good and far in between"

Pros: "i LIKE THE EARLY ARRIVAL....."
Cons: "i DON'T LIKE THAT ARRIVING AT THE GATE EARLY STILL MEANS A DELAY TO DISEMBARK. i'M SURE THEY MUST KNOW ONE OR TWO HOURS BEFORE LANDING THAT THE FLIGHT WILL BE EARLY. wHY CAN'T THE GATE BE READY TO APPROACH STRAIGHTAWAY?"

Cons: "it was a horrible experience and i will never fly with air canada again. best of luck"

Pros: "Smooth"

Cons: "Delays both on Det to Toronto and Toronto to Kingston"

Pros: "Plane was on time and flight was comfortable."
Cons: "There was no free food - that would be impossible in Europe."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"

Pros: "Our flight attendant, Aaron, was wonderful"
Cons: "Everything else was awful....I was taking an international flights, so arrived at the airport 3 hours early, as specified. There was no attendant at the desk until 1.45 hours prior to boarding. We almost missed the flight, and as a result, the connection to London. If possible, I will not fly air Canada again"

Pros: "I liked the streaming entertainment I enjoyed the friendliness of the crew I was pleased with the Canada air app allowing check-in and tracking of flight"
Cons: "The comfortability of the flight was poor. Both my wife and I were too uncomfortable to be able to sleep on out more than 9 hour flight. Leg room bad, seats uncomfortable."

Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "."

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."

Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"

Pros: "The person we sat next to. And the great flying of the pilots."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Requested a wheel chair from the curb . Upon arrival, no wheel chair. we waited and waited. Then my friend went and got a wheel chair for me. we then joined our two friends, who also had wheelchairs. however, they had first class and was taken immediately to the first class lounge. I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way. Air Canada mad sure of that. also Not a peanut unless we spent money!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything poor attitude bad manners and terrible demeanor"

Pros: "Attendants were polite. Flying get was smooth. Facilities were clean."
Cons: "The baggage check-in line was ambiguous and took 1 hour. No one to direct traffic, so people were cutting in line and were frustrated."

Cons: "Was delayed so long I almost missed my connecting flight."

Cons: "Staff was useless. Made all international connections via my cell phone."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did not bother to inform us! Ended up flying on United and arrived 6 hours later than planned."

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "BOARDED LATE AND IN GATES VERY FAR FROM CHECKING. The (solitary) crew member did not speak French. Everything she said in French was unintelligible- very offensive (and disturbing) for Francophone passengers such as myself. And for a Canadian carrier- This shows no respect for our pluralism. When we book online and try to pick priority seating, then find out that the plane is so small that the 9th row means 9 out of 12 or something, this feels like a con. Especially when we pay extra. Stop making people pay for seats that don't get them any priority boarding (Zone 3!) and offer no real advantage."

Pros: "I like every thing about that flight it was my best flight going to Jamaica.thanks again for such an awesome flight."

Pros: "Good flight and on time."

Pros: "Steward was funny"
Cons: "Small plane, wasn't told ahead of time that there was no carry on luggage and I had lap top I had to carry on and expensive camera equipment that had to be checked, would not have taken this flight if I knew this ahead of time."

Pros: "Better food like Emirates and clean like Air France/KLM"
