Cons: "fitst leg was late. no communication about the connection. was not not clear whether we're going to make the connection - too much stress"
Pros: "i didn't like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed and everything else since boarding was a mess. It was hard for the fly hostess to keep her calm and we knew she was stressed, as much as many passengers who lost their connection or who had really tied ones. I noticed also that it wasn't the only flight delayed so I am not sure if this is usual with Air Canada."
Pros: "Food and comfort were okay."
Cons: "My first plane sat on the Tarmac for 45 min, thus I missed my flight to"
Pros: "Seating in two's very good."

Pros: "On time. Luggage arrived within minutes. Great Service."
Pros: "The staff was accommodating."
Cons: "The flight had two legs: from Boston to Toronto and from Toronto to New Delhi. The layover was 1 hr 6 min, which was tight. After checking in our bags, we found out that the first leg of our flight is 2 hours late, so obviously we couldn't take the second flight. Looking at the TV monitors, I noticed that pretty much ALL Air Canada flights are seriously delayed. Luckily, there was an earlier flight to Toronto (which was scheduled to have already left, but it did not leave because that was delayed, too). The staff put us on that flight and double promised to make sure that our checked in baggage gets transferred to this alternate flight. The checked bags did not get transferred. When we arrived at Delhi, after an exasperating 1.5 hour delay after a 20 hour flight, the airline told us, and many others in the same situation, that our baggage did not arrive, and we have to come the next day to pick them up. The issue was, we were not staying in Delhi, just transiting through it. No luck, the airline said, because the customs have to be cleared at the port of entry. We are still waiting for our baggage. Oh, and if that was not enough, the airline allocated well separated seats for all the members of our family. I'd think it would be a common sense that people who have been booked on the same ticket must be assigned consecutive seats. But apparently Air Canada does not have much common sense. NOT flying with them ever again!"
Cons: "Late and overbooked Toronto Airport Dodd is bad. --- no veggie optional"
Cons: "The waiting room in Boston was awful and behind security, hot, small crowded. Delayed"
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfortable cabin."
Cons: "I have no criticisms to offer."
Pros: "The crew at the gate and onboard were exceptional! At the gate they made sure I could get on this flight even though the computer auto booked me for 2 days later."
Cons: "My bags didn't make it on the flight because of a close connection. Then I was rebooked on a flight 2 days later. This is unacceptable. I was expected to stay in Toronto for two days."
Cons: "crew are polite but cold and strict. it was a night flight and they were very noisy when serving the food."
Pros: "Bos->Toronto Good Air Canada at Boston Logan airport has there own gate area with only 3 gates. This reduces the security line for faster security check. However this also causes problems with PreCheck. See below."
Cons: "Bad There is only one line for security at Air Canada Boston Logan because of the small volume at this check point. Because of this, PreCheck passages need to hold onto there bording pass as they go through security. The first security person who checks ID and boarding pass only told my wife not to take off her shoes. He did not tell her to hold on to her boarding pass, so she put it into the bin for x-ray stuff. So later security personnel then told her to take off her shoes and gave her a body scan because her boarding pass was already in the x-ray machine. I always hold on to my boarding pass thru security but had to take my computer out of my carry-on."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "great hotel paid for by Air Canada"
Cons: "5 hours late - missed connecting flight"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. It had starwars, that was a big plus."
Cons: "The seating accommodations were terrible l. No leg room, and no room beteween passengers. I Could not relax for a 12hr flight. Im debating of booking a new flight altogether home. WHyde do all converges have to be spring ruxe ("
Pros: "Everything at the airport and while flying went great!"
Cons: "When my flight got cancelled, the staff on the phone was not helpful. Also the email notification on the cancelled flight was poorly explained. I wish the Air Canada explained the situation more fully in the email. If they had, I wouldn't have worried as much as I did about my international traveling."
Cons: "Air canada just didn't even show up, I had to take a different plane to Japan which made me late for my last flight so I had to stay in a hotel and wait til the morning to catch a new plane. So ya, not impressed."
Pros: "Short flight, as expected on smaller older plane"
Pros: "getting to my connecting flight on time"
Cons: "There was nothing to hate"
Pros: "Got on as standby - very helpful staff"
Pros: "This is 15 minutes so not much ever goes wrong. Get to altitude and then start decent."
Cons: "Food was not that good"
Cons: "the trip started out with the rude padding down at the gate. When I inquired about the continued delay of the boarding time, I was told coldly and with great impatience that there was nothing to worry about, they would get me to the next flight in Toronto. Then the plane arrived over two hours late in Toronto, missing my connecting flight to Shanghai by 10 minutes, over ten of the passengers on my plane were trying to make the same flight to Shanghai, but that flight never waited, taking off on time. So we were rerouted to Beijing, then to Shanghai on a much later flight. Once again, that caused me to miss my last leg of the trip to Xiamen from Shanghai. I overnighted in Shanghai, and did not arrive in xiamen until 48 hours later. The whole time, I could not get in touch with any AC personnel, and was completely left to my own device. No one picked up the hotel expenditure, or compensated for my last leg of the trip. It would be hard to imagine what one would do if he/she could not speak the language while in China The luggage was another horror story. It lingered in Toronto for a couple of extra days before getting on a flight to Shanghai, taking a total of a week to get to Xiamen, where I had to skip part of my event in order to pick it up in person at the airport. In my decades of international flights around the world on numerous airlines, this one has to be the worst. The absence of my luggage completely ruined the highlight events of my trip. Air Canada people was completely absent throughout the ordeal, completely absent once I arrived in China, as their representatives are so scarce in these cities, leaving you at the mercy of their STAR alliance Chinese partners who don't have any direct responsibilities to clean up AC's acts. It's a horror all and all. I have all the boarding tickets to prove this nightmare, and am still recovering from it, literally, physically."
Pros: "The on board personnel were very patient and very helpful."
Cons: "I requested wheelchair assistance but I had to walk up the ramps from the plane and had to wait for assistance. A wheelchair was not available and we had to wait for an attendant to find one Nd bring it to me."
Pros: "The extra legroom for economy plus seats"
Cons: "The food was tiny and not good"
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Cons: "Serving something substantial to eat would be nice."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Salmon and rice."
Cons: "Tvs not working and staff pretending as if they would fix it but actually the problem been going for a while with that airplane. The pizza should not only be a vegetarian one ."
Pros: "Honestly, don’t care for this airline. There’s always some hiccups with boarding, ride staff, mediocre cabin, etc."
Cons: "Why do they always want to check bags that are your everyday carryon items (large purse, medium backpac, etc.), but allow people to carryon their larger carry on suitcases filling up the overhead bins. Those are the people they should be making check their “carry-one.” And then be rude about it on top of that."
Cons: "There HAS to be a different snack choice than just salted pretzels, right? Not everyone is a fan of those. And although it may have been a last-minute issue, learning that there was no WiFi as we ascended 10,000’ into the air was quite disappointing. No techie around to troubleshoot that while we were boarding? Otherwise, the flight was uneventful and the crew was pleasant enough."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Only a couple delays."
Cons: "The ease of travel."
Pros: "Great. they upgraded us to First since my husband was silver premier"
Pros: "For an extremely late gate arrival, United personnel were very accommodating."
Cons: "One flight attendant was more than curt and impatient when taking food orders. Cabin announcement told passengers to check menu in setback pocket. There was no menu. Attendant didn't offer one until another passenger who overheard conversation requested menu. As a frequent United traveler BOS > SFO, normally a 5-6 hour flight, attendants always seem to be rushing, brusque."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Full flight, we got on smoothly and took off on time. The plane was clean and the pilots during abbouncekents were easy to understand and funny."
Cons: "I had to wait over 1.5 hours to use the bathroom because of the food and drink carts. The flight attendant would not let me use first clsss and told me I had to wait. That was way to long to make someone wait."
Pros: "Typical intercontinental flight in coach. Plenty of movies to watch, bin space and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I have a severe food allergy and despite requesting and confirming my special meal multiple times I was only offered a banana for the entire trip."
Cons: "Honestly, I am not a big fan of United right now and their airline policies. The flight was delayed for a hour. But at least I wasn't dragged off the plane or stuck in 95 degree weather for 5 hours."
Cons: "The bathrooms were dirty out of toilet paper. The food was mediocre at best. The delight wasn't delayed hours and no one informed us about the status at any point in time. Overall I did not like airchina and I would not choose them again if"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "How they wouldn't even hand out a cup of water to anyone....."
Cons: "Flights was delayed and connection was unable to be made. My younger brother is now im limbo in newark nj and is not getting much help at all. Very dissapointed in united. He may have to spend the night in the airport they said. Smh"
Cons: "Our plane departed on time, 6:05 AM. About 6:40 A E turned back towards Boston. There was a problem with the wing. It got repaired. We deplaned. And waited. And waited. Then we needed fuel to be removed. And we waited. And waited. Then we got back on board, got to the runway, and the RIGHT ENGINE didn't start. So they tried to repair it, couldn't (didn't want to fly on that old, broken plane anyway at this point), and we had our flight canceled. All told, I spent 10+ hours at Logan Airport. It was an absolute disaster."
Cons: "they have the worst customer service."
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Pros: "It was a comfy plane ride."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, professional & kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues so I only had 40 min layover to get to my next gate. Also when we arrived we were on the ground for a long time before we could pull up to gate to unload. I have a 3 yr old & 5 yr old & had to run to make it. We made it but luggage didn't. My first luggage was delivered quickly, the 2nd luggage arrived 3 days after we arrived home."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Cons: "Unreliable wifi."
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess with an adjacent gate exiting at the time of boarding creating a melee of people crossing queues. You have a carry-on baggage policy - stick to it. I wasn't carrying any roll-ons or large items but many of my fellow passengers were carrying multiple items in the hope of either getting them on or having them checked for free. Complete shambles with later boarders running up and down the aisle trying to fit their carry-ons into overhead lockers. Solution: Enforce one item only; Apply free checked items at the gate early. Apply a fee for items that don't fit and were not offered up for checking."
Pros: "Boarding was consistent and timely"
Cons: "Older, worn interior, especially if seats are pushed back"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Bathrooms weren't working, huge lines in aisle, lackluster service. Overhead bins were full by Group 3. late takeoff."
Pros: "Did get last seat in business class!"
Cons: "The seat assigned online not valid because of change of equipment. Did result in upgrade to business. Very happy outcome."
Pros: "Broading was seamless"
Pros: "Very satisfied."
Pros: "I liked how the flight attendants treat people in this flight. Thank you all."
Cons: "I didn't like how long the flight was, but that is not up to anyone to decide. I liked my stayed in the airplane."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Plane aisle was a tight squeeze with carry on bag plus seats were very close together, and I'm a small person at 5'1". Otherwise flight was good."
Pros: "Instead of a 4 hour layover in Denver, I was easily able to get on an earlier flight to slc thank you to such a wonderful front desk agent. Even the crew members on board were so pleasant you could tell they truly enjoy their job and want to make for an enjoyable flight. Thank you United!! Will be flying with you again!!"
Pros: "We were bumped up to economy plus where there are outlets available. Outlets are nice. The entertainment options were very good."
Pros: "Boarding was well organized"
Cons: "Crew is not very kind and the food is a bad joke. Not talking about quantity, just quality. Even if it's a small snack there should be better options"
Pros: "The complimentary movie, and the incredibly nice service."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable. Flight service was good."
Cons: "Flight was extremely delayed and an accurate timetable was not communicated well."
Pros: "we got there safely despite quite a bi of turbulance"
Cons: "turbulance and it took soooo long for the gate check luggage to be brought to us, several of us almost or did miss their connections. that was the first time it took soooo long."
Pros: "The airplane itself was great but the rest was not so good. United tries to sell you everything and the seating was miserable. We are back to JetBlue at first opportunity."
Pros: "Quality plane Clean"
Cons: "Seats too close together. My shoulders were squeezed against my neighbors"
Cons: "all the televisions were going on and off, on and off, doing this thing that said "searching" and they would go black, and then turn on again in a sequence that I can only describe as a blinking Christmas light pattern all over the plane. It gave me a huge migraine, and the woman next to me covered here TV with a scarf that barely blocked out the light in her face. It was extremely distracting and I couldn't even nap."
Pros: "I liked it was steady and smooth for the most part. Good service and entertainment."
Cons: "On the way back, last 20 minutes made me feel nauseous and the return flight also didn't have T.V."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "4 hours in line to get my tickets changed 6 hours on hold to talk to a rep No available flights for 4 days when canceled due to weather Very disorganized staff in Boston no one knew where to go"
Cons: "Crew member that was boarding us promised my bag was on the plane but, it wasn't so it got lost."
Pros: "Arrived early. Friendly crews. :)"
Cons: "I'm used to quality service from JetBlue and Virgin America, so this was awful. Nothing was free--not even peanuts! I got a tiny cup of coca-cola for free and that was about it. The staff was curt and not very friendly, the flight was long and uncomfortable, and there was absolutely no on-board entertainment. For a $300 flight that normally costs $150 with other airlines, I don't know what I'm paying for."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The reading light was so weak that it was impossible to read."
Pros: "Still waiting to get there.....canceled flight.....next option 6 days after my original date"
Cons: "The arm rests didn't got back, only affected row 37 (our row)"
