Beverages were offered once from Vancouver to Toronto. I forgot to fill my water bottle so was quite thirsty.
Pros: "Fast flight Had a whole row to myself Distancing was good"
Cons: "People sitting in front of me would keep putting down their mask and didn’t listen to the flight instructions when being showed the demonstration. Flight attendant wasn’t as friendly as other flight attendants I’ve had"
Pros: "Crew is great!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "I didn’t fly out of Philadelphia because the flight was 5 hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Had to go get my luggage, go home and try to fly today! Terrible! All my plans screwed up!"
Pros: "Crew as always with air Canada were very accommodating. Always smiling!"
Pros: "Great ground and air crew"
Pros: "Crew was very professional but no explanation of why it took out 30+ mins overtime to depart nor why we were held from landing another 30+ mins."
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: "The staff and efficiency"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "we had to pay for everything"
Pros: "Friendly crew, onboard food was fairly decent and an okay price."
Cons: "Even a “preferred” seat on Rouge (27E, bulkhead on B767-300ER) has no legroom. This, combined with a short and low seat cushion means a dead butt. I’m only 5’11” too."
Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled and rebooked with a connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything except the snow in Canada"
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "It was a direct flight from Athens to Toronto. The wine was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "The plane was two hours late taking off. The small bit of extra leg room and service do not justify the extra price paid. The crew were not as friendly as normal on Air Canada flights and made little attempt at extra service."
Pros: "Direct flight - on time departure , arrived early"
Cons: "Grumpy crew, uncomfortable seating - tight & seating comfort poor, attendants came around once for drink & food - didn't return until end of flight"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work - it cut in an out, I had to restart a movie 3 times. As well, the seat felt damaged - it leaned to one side. Made for a very uncomfortable 8 hours. The leg room is getting worse"
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: "Everything. The plane was immaculate, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, the flight crew was friendly and professional. Air Canada's abillity to transit passengers from the US to international destinations is truly remarkable and must be best in class. I went from an inbound flight from Houston, through Immigration and to the gate for my flight to London in under 15 minutes!"
Pros: "Air Canada's crew is very professionnal."
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow and it made eating the meal a little difficult."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system had ads. Too many."
Cons: "Both Flights cancelled and was put on a later flight."
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: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cramped seating. Bare bones IFE that barely works. Not even a bag of pretzels for free. Gate agents seemed baffled by the boarding process."
Cons: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."
Cons: "we pre booked seats at #14 because our daughter cannot walk without help, we took her to and from the plane by wheelchair to make it easier, they bumped us to seat # 32 , the very last one, that is a long walk, at check in the woman there was rude when we told her of our situation and that we had seats, she said there was nothing she could do because the plane was full, she was not very helpful at all, and asked if we wanted to take another plane. Our whole family has been traveling with air Canada, but I think it's time for a change. Very disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The privacy of the person was honored"
Cons: "Having to stop. We were not told our luggage would not have to be transported through customs"
Cons: "There was no food served during the flight. Did not like that."
Pros: "Movies ok"
Cons: "Very very very cold and no blanket !!!!! Was a struggle"
Pros: "We boarded on time and made connecting flight with no issues."
Cons: "My son had no tv monitor (broken?0 the entire trip with no resolution to the issue. We asked flight crew several times to see what could be done and were told they would reset it. We have very little confidence that was done and no other resolution was pursued. The plane was not very clean and the smell of one of the bathrooms was terrible."
Pros: "Nice and professional crew."
Cons: "Customer service not very helpful. My luggage did not make connecting flight and was late arriving to destination. There was not any sense of urgency in getting my luggage to me quickly. I had to call several times for results. I did not have my luggage for more than 24 hours and nothing was done to compensate me in having to purchase basic necessities such as hygienic items."
Pros: "There are a variety of entertainments section."
Cons: "During transfering from air canada to delta an employee failed to transfer all my baggage. As a result I couldn't get one of my baggage yet. Moreover there was no reservation made for me and I missed the flight since I lost the time by going back and forth to Delta and Air Canada offices to fix the problem. As a result I spent the night at Detroit and take the next day flight."
Pros: "They didnt loose my luggage this time."
Cons: "do your self a favor and find a different airline. When i got home and talked to others about my travels the said " what did you expect, i wont fly air canada" I wish i would have know before i booked my flight."
Pros: "Reaching my destination, that's the only thing I was happy about"
Cons: "The plane is old and seat are close to each others, it wouldn't hirt if they make extra space, afterall it's a long flight!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. had to spend night in Vancouver next day flight delayed had run fast to catch connecting flight to Deer Lake. Appalling that you guys are so useless with a flight on a major route such as Vancouver to Toronto. Will fly West Jet next time."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to washington"
Pros: "Nothing the flight was cancelled and delayed 19h"
Cons: "Nothing the flight was cancelled and delayed 19h. I haven't even gotten on the plane while writing this."

Pros: "It got me home"
Cons: "Long day of travel"
Pros: "I liked flying in a small plane; with few people aboard; very uncomplicated."
Cons: "Bathroom on the plane was very small; although clean there was a bad odor, not sure it was from a previous occupant, the water or something, but it was most unpleasant."
Pros: "Very good individual entertainer system in seat backs of new boeing dream liner."
Cons: "Called in advance re special veg meal but they didn't have it at mealtime."
Cons: "How can you operate a plane with no operable washroom? I left the plane in pain. I hope Air Canada execs have the same pain one day! Shame on you!"

Cons: "Waiting area at Rome were mediocre and boarding via a bus cumbersome."
Cons: "One flight left 47 minutes late, but it didn't matter because we had a long layover anyway."

Pros: "AIR CANADA MAKES YOU FEEL TO BE A SPECIAL BEING, OFFERS INFORMATION, FACILITIES AND AID YOU."
Pros: "Crew was terrific"
Cons: "Cabin was a little cool"
Pros: "Got seated at row 2 so practically I was the first one to disembark. There's only one stewardess who took care of us and she did very well."
Cons: "The plane is so small that I don't have above head compartment so I had to put all my stuff under seat in front and I don't have space to put my leg."
Cons: "Very very delayed. Made traveling home difficult on me and my family."
Cons: "The airline cancelled my return flight home from a Venice without notifying me because they said I was. “No show” on my previous flight over. This was absolutely not true. To cancel someone’s flight and not alert them is highly unethical."
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Cons: "Nothing. It was what you expect. Comfortable transportation and no crashes."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very cramped and uncomfortable seats in Economy. 2 hours late arriving in KansasCity."
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "No compensation, no manager available because they were dealing with the same issue at another gate. Where is the customer service?"
Pros: "Departure was on time. Surprisingly, had row to myself, allowed for more leg room. Flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "One beverage service only. My flight to Sf had two services which included free pretzels. Attendant did not return down aisle to check on passengers after first beverage service. Seats of plane in both directions for non stop flights very uncomfortable. With no lean back seats hard to find good sleep position. I tend to sleep through early morning flights."
Pros: "Comfortable, quick, and great service."
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "I had to gate check my bag and then waited 45 minutes to get it back."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Seats very dirty sticky Not clean at all"

Pros: "I paid extra for Economy Plus. That should be the standard seating."
Cons: "Any flight where passengers have no chance to eat should provide more than a cookie."
Pros: "We made it home alive, so that's the main thing."
Cons: "Three hour delay, which wasn't clearly explained. From others waiting with us, we gathered that flights were delayed fur to some travel plans for POTUS. Does that always happen? I can't imagine it does."
Pros: "Captain was communicative before departure and during flight Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "After aircraft was parked a strange loud noise could have been heard for 30 seconds. Would be nice if a crew member (flight attendant or captain) assured passengers that it was normal. Noise didn't seem normal and I was very concerned. No infotainment options."
Cons: "Kansas City airport is in need of a complete remodel."
Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The crew was again nice enough to find an empty seat next to mine."
Cons: "The layover was very short. Fortunately, the gates were very close together. However, since I didn't have time to get lunch in the terminal, I had a snack box for lunch, too. This was rather monotonous. There aren't enough chocolate choices on the snack menu. There were no limes for my beverage. There was no in-flight entertainment available. I had hoped to finish the movie I started on the first leg."
Cons: "I understand aircraft safety is paramount, but 2 hour delay also meant we missed dinner reservation at destination on Mother's Day"
Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "on schedule even though ORD had some weather issues but yes good flight.."
Pros: "The free internet and movies"
Cons: "The delayed flight"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats with no leg room."
Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"
Pros: "First class it was owsome"
Pros: "Though the airplane arrived late for boarding (due to inclement weather and air-traffic), the airline worked fast to make sure that the plane was clean and ready to board. The hostesses were very kind and helpful."
Cons: "There were no gluten-free options for snacks. There was no entertainment, which isn't really a problem for shorter flights."
Pros: "Flight delayed for a short time, explanation given- satisfying. Delayed flight info sent via text very helpful. Flight attendants and staff, very attentive, courteous, professional and informational. Over all satisfied with United airlines, thank you for my sucressful trip to Kansas City to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday!"
Cons: "Waited at the kiosk at the gate desk, took about 20 minutes for an agent to appear and help with customer service."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 40 minutes because of "paperwork" according to the pilot. We boarded the plane on time however had to sit on it during the delay. We were not informed of what was going on until we had already been waiting for 30 minutes. When they informed us of the delay they offered everyone free direct TV in flight to make up for the delay. Once we finally took off they announced that the direct TV was not actually working. The flight attendant making the announcements was not sincere and rather unprofessional. Luckily the pilot flew fast so we ended up arriving only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "Long boarding and delayed flight, lots of walking"
Cons: "We have to pay for food on a 2 hour flight? Just snacks, no meal even though it was dinner time. The stewardess doing announcements was obnoxious. She had an odd way of speaking with strange pauses, she kept calling it Kansas instead of Kansas City, and she made condescending remarks about it."
Cons: "It was a small, commuter plane and everyone was to gate check any carry-on that wouldn't fit under the seat, like rolling bag. My neighbor did not check his and took up more than half of my leg room. He was NOT friendly and I was not willing to anger him by complaining. But he should not have been allowed to bring it on board. This was a United flight, not Lufthansa."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 4 hours, there was no clarity on what was going on. They made us change aircrafts, the ground staff was mean at best. In spite of the 4 hour wait they didn't even bother serving food or made any announcement to handle passenger anxiety and concerns. Delays are sometimes unavoidable and I have had experiences in the past but none that was handled this unprofessionally"
Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."
Cons: "When I boarded the plane, I noticed crumbs and grease marks on my seat and crackers all over the floor at my feet. Rather than clean my area, the stewardess handed me wet wipes."
Cons: "We were delayed, no big deal. Then we got on the plane and set there on a hot plane for over 30 minutes waiting."
Pros: "Delayed in Denver"
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Didn't have a plane for us. Over 3 1/2 hour delay. Every time I fly this airline there is an issue with the flights."
Pros: "Went smoothly & on time"
Cons: "Didn't see any flying monkeys going over Kansas. They promised me flying monkeys..."
Cons: "At the boarding gate, there was really really mean crew operating the boarding. There was one guy on standby, was told to wait so he did but he didn't get the seat . I understand that could happen but how she spoke this guy was absolutely rude and she did say " that's not my fault! That's your fault!!" And slam the door ... When we asked her for adding miles , she did as complaining " I am here for the flight to Ommaha ." Even though she was not , she is working for United airlines , isn't it her job ??? She was like that to every customer and that presents your company's value ... When the gate was for us , she was back at the gate ...... I am so disappointed for this poor customer service. Even though if I mention here , I know nothing would change and I hope this one voice will reach to the company somehow and make some change ."
Cons: "After sitting for a 8 hour layover, the boarding gate was changed. The announcement of this change was poorly done, and we were not aware. Fortunately, I questioned why our flight was not announced and found this change. With less than 30 minutes until flight take off, we had to hurry to ...not only another gate, but a completely different terminal. I feel there should have been better informative announcements of this change."
