This was an excellent flight with very few people on board. Only issue was the 30 minute departure delay and this was communicated well so we weren't left hanging. Traveler communications in Cancun airport aren't the best, but that isn't AC's fault.
Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Slight departure delay - no big deal"
Pros: "Crew, seats and entertainment. Unfortunately a rude passenger in front that put their seat back too far and refused to compromise so didn’t have much leg room over a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ran out of half the food options halfway down the plane."
Pros: "Timely. Best entertainment."
Cons: "Very disappointed with the seat. Then placed us next to women with children. No rest for us at all. Also no blankets provided. Others had."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and touch screen on TV was working but it took some work -- I had to press and hold and the little arrow would fly all over the screen"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Honolulu. This made Customs and Screening stressful...as there was only 45 minutes to get through and then to the gate. No one advised that there was another plane shortly, which would have reduced the feeling that we had to sprint down to the gate. Otherwise a very good flight"
Pros: "Slight delay due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "24 hour delay due to mechanical issues"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite but didn’t go out of their way to help out."
Cons: "No room to store carry on and nobody seemed to care that all space was taken close to our seats. We felt penalized because others abused the system while we were trying to follow the rules."
Pros: "getting of the plane!"
Cons: "the bed bugs, no lights, no comfort, the cold, very limited service"
Cons: "After a delay on my first flight, I managed to get to the gate with a few minutes to spare and the door open. The desk agent refused to let me board the plane."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and capable."
Cons: "My first and last flight on the CRJ 9. It's much less comfortable than a prop plane, for a 90 minute+ flight."
Pros: "we had to pay for everything"
Pros: "Seats in business."
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Being delayed for mechanical issues seems to happen more often now, which gives pause. Obviously we want a safe aircraft and I'm glad they deal with the issues, but why are these issues popping up more frequently now? Also, the seats are very uncomfortable for a tall person - no lumbar support"
Cons: "Delayed without notice and broken sound system for tv screen."
Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment or a boarding pass for my connecting flight"
Pros: "The waiting room before boarding was big and comfortable. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Children running around because there wasn't anything to do. Passengers ignoring no food and drink signs. A passenger had a nut allergy so no food could be eaten or served with nuts. I understand this serious health risk, but passengers need to be handed out free of charge crackers or cookies if they were counting on eating their own snack. Passengers were putting both their carry on and personal item in the over head storage and therefore there wasn't enough storage for those would only wished to store one item."
Cons: "I only had one gripe about this flight and my one other flight on Air Canada Rouge; the overhead bins are very poorly designed. I purchased a carry on bag specifically to meet their regs, yet it had it go in the bin longways, taking up a ton of room. The bins are tall, which is wasted space, when what they really need is another 1-2" in depth."
Pros: "Ease of booking"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew members were also friendly"
Cons: "The boardung gate was changed but no announcement was made"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and courteous. I liked the tv selection especially the Canadian content."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of electric problems. The complimentary snacks aren't as good as other airlines."
Pros: "It was such a nice normal flight compared to the other flights on this trip."
Cons: "Still too much carry on to deal with before take off."
Pros: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Cons: "Check in was slow and confusing."
Cons: "French annoying"
Pros: "The flight was on time!!!"
Cons: "I find over the past 25 years that I have been flying with Air Canada the customer service has really went to the dumps !!! Every body is rude and don't understand why."
Pros: "Liked being distracted by a free movie."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, and the boarding and de-planing process went smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was really cold, and we were told that they couldn't adjust the temperature, but we could have a blanket - at a cost. We have heard from other people who travelled Rouge about how cold their flight was, too. I also didn't realize that there wouldn't be in-flight movies - unless you rented an i-pad, etc. That was a bit disappointing for a 6-hour flight. I think that I would rather have paid a little higher fee for the flight and have some of the things built into the ticket than have to keep paying out money for all the different things."
Pros: "Quick easy, I hate that I have to go through sercurity again... but oh well."
Cons: "Refer to last one."
Cons: "Flight was 45 min late leaving & I only had 1 hr between the next flights. Because Winnipeg is a small airport, I just made the next connection but no time to go to the restroom."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats are extremely small and cramped. Temperature was too cold during the flight and there wasn't even a fan on so it was the cabin temperature which couldn't be adjusted. In addition No blankets or cushions were provided. The leg room was horrible. I'm only 5'5" and I felt cramped, so I can't imagine how it would feel for someone taller. also, no one checked bags due to the newly imposed fee so everyone crammed their luggage into the overhead compartments and many of us had no room to store our carry-ons and had to put it below our seats, causing even less leg room. the Hawaiian airport also locked out the waiting area for international flights back to Vancouver due to some policy that the area must be locked down until the plane has arrived and everyone is off the plane. Many of us were sitting on the ground outside in the non-air conditioned hallway in front of the stores like homeless people for over 2 hours. Luckily seniors were sitting on wheelchairs and did not have to wait while standing or sitting on the ground. They finally let us in 20 minutes before boarding but really by then it made no difference."
Pros: "We checked in online and were able to very quickly and efficiently check our bags and board."
Cons: "We did not have in flight entertainment. We had to pay $10 to rent an iPad."
Cons: "Not even one single snack for free"
Pros: "Crew is quite young and friendly.. good service. Boarding was quick and easy. Blanket and neck pillow package were comfy and worth the $7"
Cons: "The plane was FREEZING and the seats are a bit cramped."
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Horrible seats"
Cons: "We nearly missed a chance to disembark between storms because an idiot decided to grab his bags before we could move. None of the flight crew came to yell at the dummy who was holding us up."
Pros: "Price good; seat comfort OK."
Cons: "Late to board, late to take off, late to land: no explanations other than "We're third in line.""
Pros: "Plane was late due to Stewart missing the bus from their hotel?...seriously unprofessional and the check in staff lying to customers to accommodate others customers from an undeparted flight from the night before?...attempting to change my flight due to this?...seriously need to do better Air Canada...and to top it all off you are served by a snotty unprofessional group of stewards?....a huge JOKE!....won't be flying this airline again and I will be spreading the word!"
Cons: "Connecting from London through Toronto to Winnipeg couldn't be accomplished in a 2.25 hr layover. Long line for immigration and and enormous line to go through security again meant I missed my flight and the next one was full. It gave me 5 hours to think of all the reasons why I won't connect through Toronto again."
Cons: "Flight left almost one hour late"
Pros: "Wide seats."
Cons: "Small leg space. No window by seat. The seating map did not make this known, otherwise I would have chosen another seat."
Cons: "air canada overbooks their flights....consequently, i wasn't able to be on the flight that i had booked with kayak. they have flex seating which gives business people who fly alot preference to change their flights at a moment's notice. bad policy for the rest of us."
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Cons: "gate was changed without an announcement flight was twice delayed"
