Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Entertainment and comfortable seats"
Cons: "They could have given us some snacks or something"
Cons: "Really doesn't fit into the "didn't like" category but my boarding pass said Zone 6, however there was no Zone 6 called nor signage for it. Even the person checking our boarding passes was surprised. Just a comment really!"
Cons: "The customer service was disgraceful. Air Canada has set the bar very, very low."
Pros: "This was a very pleasant flight. The attendants were excellent. The plane was clean. The food was fantastic . The entertainment system made the flight go by better. Over all an excellent experience"
Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Missed the connection in Vancouver in which crew could not be found and were not helpful. Ended up using another airline's counter for help to catch another flight out. Luggage was left in Vancouver. Eva Airline helped with luggage location and shipping to final destination."
Pros: "There was nothing unpleasant"
Cons: "Long walk from terminal F and it wasn't well maked"
Cons: "I made a mistake on my reservation. I thought I made it for July 30tb , but it was for August 30th . They charged over $600.00 to fly home , which is a lot of money to me ."
Pros: "Very kind crew, comfortable seats, good movies"
Cons: "I was never notified by text or email that the flight was delayed 2 hours! There was never an announcement made about options to standby for earlier flights. I had someone waiting for me at the airport for 3 hours! The flight home was very chaotic."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "When I spoke to one of the stewardesses about how this was the second time in a week that Air Canada failed to prepare a vegetarian meal for me, she listened to me and somehow pulled something together. All other employees were courteous, as well."
Cons: "On both my departure and return flight, Air Canada insisted I did not tell them ahead of time that I was a vegetarian. I am sure I did it for the departure, and I am absolutely certain I did it on the return. I contacted them because I didn't want to go hungry on another 10+ hour flight. I think, what happened was, another vegetarian who didn't order ahead requested a vegetarian meal and got mine. I was told I had to verify 48 hours before my flight. Why? Could I have become non-vegetarian in that amount of time? You should have to say it only once. I have never had this problem on any other airline, and it happened the only two times I've flown Air Canada. The light positions are terrible; my neighbors' light shown directly into my face the entire flight."
Pros: "Flights were on time and very comfortable"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours, no information was provided on the delay and further delay at the gate waiting for the crew."
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours but no one was in much of a rush to get it going"
Pros: "One flight attendant in particular stood out to me. She was extremely friendly and pleasant the whole flight. Flying is not always the easiest experience, especially during a 12 hour journey. Her positive attitiude definitely made it more bearable. Excellent customer service!"
Cons: "Certain members of crew did not offer the best flying experience. Ranged from being rude and curt with customers, and not being friendly and accommodating - need an attitude adjustment."
Pros: "Surprisingly roomy seat. Fine staff."
Pros: "When you plan travel over the Holiday season you expect hiccups and huge crowds and a lot of grumpy people in unrealistic hurries....his the me was not like that at all. Everyone was great except for security in Calgary!!! Don't know what the deal was but they set a record for the slowest I have EVER been in. It took so s almost an hour and there were not that many people in line...it was epic"
Cons: "My bag did not make it. After dealing with this airline I was not surprised. They told me to call back in 3 days."
Pros: "I loved the free movies on the chair in front of me and also the map that let you know how far away the plane was from the destination. The flight was on time and the crew were lovely and friendly"
Cons: "My headphones didn't work well in my armrest. It had some kind of shortage so it kept going in and out."
Cons: "The flight was very cold, even though everyone in my row had their air vents closed."
Cons: "An international flight, yet no food, and had to purchase beverages and ear buds."
Pros: "Th flight attendants were nice. The entertainment system was working and the movies were good."
Cons: "My flight from Milan was 1 1/2 hr late but before landing it was announced that our seats on the connecting flight was "protected". I got to my gate 40 min. before takeoff (it was 15 min. delayed). Upon boarding I was told my seat was given away. They assumed I would miss my flight. I had to wait another 4 hr. to board a flight to Vancouver BC leaving 11pm. I had to go to a hotel at 2 am and take a 8:50 am flight to PDX. Before boarding I was again stopped because my ticket didn't have the proper security stamp. The agent there was extremely rude and condescending. This was a terrible experience!"
Cons: "Cramped, bathroom smelled and no mvies unless you brought your own tablet or rented one which they didnt inform us of ahead of the flight"
Pros: "The crew was great, the flight was fast, the plane was very comfortable. Other than the time delay, the flight was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over thirty minutes, which was very inconvenient going through customs with a connecting flight."
Pros: "The staff was great and helpful"
Cons: "Main connecting flight no screens but could use my iPad for to access entertainment. It would be lot useful to supply means peering your pad, even an USB port would be good. Felt sorry for the passengers who didn't have one, but had rent one for $10 to for the entertainment Also from experience the choices was not outstanding"
Cons: "There was a thunderstorm & a wreck that morning, so even though we planned to arrive 90 minutes before boarding we ended up not making it until avout 62 minutes before flight time. They only had one gate agent and she stepped away before we could check in. Assuming she'd be right back, we waited for her instead of checking in by terminal. By the time she returned it was too late to check in and they wouldn't let us board. Air Canada didn't have another flight until the next day, so we had to spend $5000 to re-book our flight on a different airline."
Cons: "my luggage and my baby's car seat was delayed. I arrived at 10 pm and my luggage and baby's car seat was missing. I was told they will deliverer it to me the next day, but I have not received my stuff now its been two days"
Pros: "Entertainment and Food on Board was better than US carriers. Campbell Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup was not hot enough and not enough broth, Cheese was ok."
Cons: "We had yet another weather delay. Why put us on the Aiplane just to sit on the runway, Ground Stiop! The Custom process is not well explained and takes far too long. Very Bad! Because of all the delays for weather and a tight connection at Toronto we lost our Luggage. One day later at 11:00 pm we finally have our luggage. Bad!"
Pros: "The high tech of the airplane."
Cons: "I was situated in between 6 screaming kids. As you can imagine. Not fun."
Pros: "The Air Canada agents and staff were very helpful and accommodating to the best of their ability. I hugged one female AC Agent in TO as she was so kind and helpful, and told her she was the highlight of my day."
Cons: "The processing of Air Canada passengers to the connecting Gates and through Customs for USA international flights was a nightmare. It was very disorganized, with hundreds of passengers herded like cattle, poor communication, customs slips not provided on the AC Flight before landing so as to be completed in advance. There was staff shortage, and not done in a timely manner so as to make your connecting Flight. It has truly been a most stressful experience for me this and each time I have to go through Toronto to make a connecting flight , and I will avoid this flight plan in the future at all cost."
Pros: "In spite of the issues with the equipment (screens & lights) he crew was very reactive and listen to our request."
Cons: "The screens of an entire row didn't work at all making it impossible to watch movies, listen to music or watch the flight's info. On top of that, when I wanted to read, I figured the light above my seat did not work either."
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Food, seating and entertainment was poor overall. No tvs/ entertainment of any sort"
Pros: "The staff and service"
Cons: "Movie options from yul to lax"
Cons: "Staff were unhelpful when I had to reschedule my flight due to delays from the airlines; it was a nightmare trying to get on another flight. The staff at the counter kept saying all flights are overbooked and that I had to go on next day flight to get home. Then I called customer service and was able to find plenty of seats for the same day. I hate the experience with this u helpful staff. Would never fly air canada again."
Pros: "They were on time. We weren't told of any mechanical issues with the plane that could cause delays. Stewardess were helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Flight got in early which is always nice."
Cons: "Outlets on the plane didn't work so I couldn't keep my phone charged. Kayak sent me an email indicating both my flights were on Air Canada but my flights to and from SFO were on United. I was unable to change my seats online with no explanation."
Cons: "Served dinner too late. Only one beverage offer on a 6 hour flight. My companions luggage was lost and it took CA more than 48 hours to deliver. Won't be seeking travel on AC anytime soon."
Pros: "I really liked how updated the plane was. The wine selection was very good. The entertainment had plenty of things to do - movies and TV shows were updated. I enjoyed the ice cream, that was a very nice treat!"
Cons: "I thought the food was not as good as the flight over to the UK - the mashed potatoes didn't look or taste like it had any real components at all and the bread was a little stale."
Cons: "No screen to watch movies, had to download their app to watch anything on my phone, which I was not made aware of beforehand."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were very good, lots of water, good at cleanup. I was in a preferred seat behind the exit row--thought I was getting the exit row--but with no one in the middle seat there was room to move."
Cons: "Preferred seats really don't seem to offer much over the standard cattle class seat, and this Airbus 321 does feel like cattle class."
Pros: "2 seats together"
Cons: "no wine with dinner awful service felt we were bothering the staff movies on AC app were awful food was awful damaged brand new luggage and said they didn't cover the damage awful awful awful"
Pros: "On time good staff"

Cons: "I would like a flight map to follow the flight and have more information"
Pros: "Good landing ahead of scheduled arrival time"
Cons: "Airplane is Too small :)"
Cons: "An hour delay"

Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "The plane was not at its original time"
Pros: "Easy on and off"
Pros: "Airport customer support was okay."
Cons: "Phone customer support was awful. My 1st flight was delayed so I was going to miss my connection. I needed to work with United to get re-routed. They were useless in finding flights, starting looking at flights starting in other states, took forever. I ended up getting help once I got to the airport"
Pros: "The attendant was nice about it"
Cons: "They tried to still get me home on the same day. They even put me on a different airline. It did not work. I am in Chicago for 24 hrs with one $12 meal voucher. A burger at the hotel is $17"
Cons: "They delayed so long that I had to reschedule for another day. This is after watching planes to other possible locations take off before United would switch peoples tickets. This was after a 4 hour layover completely disappeared. They should have been able to reroute planes or something after the first 2 hours of delays since it was for a weather phenomena that gives tons of warning (at least 24 hours)."
Pros: "Thanks for the free cocktail"
Cons: "My United connecting flight was delayed. I rushed to arrive at the gate prior to the departure time to be told the plane had left early and I had been rescheduled to the next morning at 7am. However, there were no vouchers available for me to stay in a hotel or get food. So, I was able to get a flight on American that got me home the same night. By the way, the American flight was delaying takeoff to wait for passengers who had been delayed on their connecting flights."
Pros: "Forthright on giving out informatiom"
Pros: "Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "Seat hurt after around three hours"
Pros: "Security was quick and easy to get through."

Cons: "Not enough room!"
Pros: "Agent at check-in was very, very helpful and accomadating"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by mechanical difficulties and weather in Newark. Boarding was confused, and the announcements in KC were muffled. Once in the air, The crew was exceptional, explaining what the strategy was for avoiding as much turbulence as they could."
Pros: "Great flight! On time. Pleasant crew. Good snacks"
Pros: "Traveling fast"
Cons: "To pricey"
Pros: "The flight crew tried to make the best of a bad situation."
Cons: "We paid good money for first class tickets expecting to get a hot dinner meal on the flight so we had not eaten. By the time the flight was allowed to take off, the dinner onb the flight had sat too long and they were not allowed to serve it. They gave us a coupon for $20 buck to eat dinner at San Francisco airport upon arrival but of course no restaurant is open at 2:00 am."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Free movies/TV with an app"
Cons: "Very small plane, felt every bump as well as every passenger that walked by"
Pros: "Online movies and TV"
Pros: "Easy to board friendly"
Cons: "The snack food selection, price on wifi"
Cons: "A passenger had to move because of an allergy to the "emotional support dog" in the seat next to her. They moved her before the rest of the flight had boarded, so the seating got messed up and took quite a bit of time to sort out. The flight crew seemed to be extremely put off by the whole scenario and couldn't seem to keep their displeasure professionally under control. I ended up volunteering to move because the passengers who caused the problem refused to bend. For all the crew's displeasure, they didn't handle the passengers, the passengers handled them."
Pros: "No turbulence. Easy-in, easy-out"
Cons: "Not much leg room or seat space. Also for over 2 hour flight, no food was offered."

Pros: "Both flights were delayed."
Pros: "Got us here early, smooth ride"
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "The plane was flithy. The crevice between the seat and the wall of the plane was caked with filth. The beverage served was lukewarm water, with no other choices. The plane was uncomfortably hot."
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined in transit to Kansas City. The help desk basically asked me to leave my bag behind for three weeks to see if they can fix it. They had no means of looking after the contents. Was I suppose to carry my content???This was ever so frustrating since the suitcase was brand new. Then the lady told me that my warranty on the bag will cover the damage. It was obvious she was not willing to help and did not have a clue what she was doing thus I just logged the complaint and had by suitcase sorted out the San Francisco Airport. They were very helpful."
Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"
Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"
Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome on both trips!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, completely obliterating my whole purpose for travel."
Pros: "Mostly nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, not a lot of information conveyed to passengers. The aircraft landed more than 4 hours late, could've gone to Kansas City and come back twice in the same amount of time. No apology by the crew for the delay"
Pros: "Considerate crew"
Cons: "Late, plane problem, replacement needed hasmat, blood, missed connection, sent to hotel, two hours sleep before I had to spend $60 for taxi to get back to airport, baggage mishandled, baggage arrived two days late."
Pros: "When l got to airport I was advised my flight had been canceled. Rerouted on United airlines thru Washington Dulles. Waited on Tarmac 2 1/2 hours due to bad weather, etherwise everything was good."
Cons: "the flight attendeds werent friendly"
Pros: "It eventually ended"
Cons: "Spent almost an hour before actually taking off. Terrible service. No"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Flight delay. Some flights have phone chargers-This flight did not. no pillows"

Pros: "The new planes are great."
Pros: "It was seamless. Everyone excellent and flights on time."
