The seats were very comfortable with a fresh package of pillow/blanket and earphones waiting for us. A free meal, and snack. The take-off and landing were timely.

The bathroom was the worst I have ever seen. Old urine splattered on the seat (it had to have been left uncleaned from an earlier flight). There was no soap, The floor as still wet from urine and tp was still there. I was disguisted. Also there were only one bathroom in the back of the plane, which must have been a way to get more available seats. If other airplanes take that tactic, I'll stop flying altogether.

There were many babies and small children on this fight , the crew did a great job of assisting families . Also they really strived to assist any request

Once boarded completely we sat in an ice cold plane for 1 hour before takeoff told to stay seated and not use the bathrooms. More communication needed from cockpit for the delay, and when we might takeoff , passengers and crew were freezing...

More communication needed! I was randomly relocated and searched by airport security...fine, but at least some information should be provided to husbands or traveling companions. We are seniors, my husband is not going to leave me in a foreign country . My boarding pass was taken , after the search I was told to get on the plane. My husband was provided no information until it was his turn to board ,he was panicked... The airline should communicate with traveling companions the procedure ! I am an retired airline employee, we realize that airport security is not in your hands but communication would keep family members calm. We had a wonderful time in Columbia but this does nothing good for a Country that wants more Tourism.

At least from my experience, Air Canada is late half the time. This last leg was 6 hours late. No check-in availability notification on the second leg, and I got the flight delay notification after I landed (6 hours later)! Pretty useless. Everything is nickle and dimed with no included food except for the tiny snack thing on a 6 hour flight. It's pretty difficult to get their app to work for entertainment.

Nothing

This was probably the worst handled flight I have been on; there was first a slight delay, then a longer delay, then a much longer delay, all of which one could find out only after checking online; there were no announcements about the delay until after the scheduled time of departure; then there was another announcement that there was a mechanical problem and we'll be apprised of the situation at 7pm (the flight was scheduled at 6:25). The person at the counter disappeared. At 7:30, the gate changed to a different flight altogether--still no announcement, still no person at the gate. When a different person finally appeared and I asked her what happened to the Pittsburgh flight, she said, it's here, it'll be departing at this precise gate shortly. At that exact time, the PA system had an announcement that the flight to Pittsburgh is now scheduled at gate 86 at 7.01 (yes, 7:01, even though it was already after 7:30). When we went to gate 86, there, of course, was another flight there. After waiting some more, the woman at the first counter now appeared at gate 86 and said the flight was to be at gate 88. Until the very end when we boarded, gate 88 continued to say the flight was to Columbus. Absolutely abysmal customer service. (Even the boarding was handled badly, but at that time we didn't even care.) I am never recommending Air Canada.

We have been on 6 flights over the last 8 days, all with Delta and we have already started telling people how wonderful the service was. Sherry on this last flight was amazing, working so hard all by herself as our flight attendant. We were very impressed. And the pilots all came out to say goodbye and thank you.

Inexperienced crew. Had to circle the departure airport for 1.5 hours and then land again due to a mechanical issue. They didn't tell us what was going on exactly. Sat at the gate for another 40 minutes. Finally departed. Everyone on boar missed their connections. I personally missed a whole day of my European vacation due to this error. Stuff happens from time to time but it would have been nice for them to have handled it better.

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.

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.
