Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."

Pros: "Entertainment System loaded with movies Optional WIFI at cost Aisle seat Air quality / temp control was comfortable Passport control through JFK was straight forward and short for USA citizens"

Cons: "It was completely unclear where to check in, Staff extremly unfriendly. At the check in counter, on my question if we can get two seats at the aisle the lady immediatly shouted to me I have to pay 93 $ per seat. In the end she gave us two diffrent seats in diffrent rowes and in the middle. In the plane ,enough seats were free so we got what we wanted in the end. Service on board was excellent. The onground service was so terrible and mean, that I will most certainly not fly AA if possible"

Cons: "The delay with American flights in LAX were frustrating to deal with after several hours of traveling prior."
Pros: "Wrong airline, sent me to wrong gate, almost missed the flight. If I wasn't lucky enough to need a wheelchair, I would probably still be in Phx! Not happy at all, to say the least. I had to grease the palms of about 7 different wheelchair pushers. A bad day all around."
Pros: "None at all. Poor customer service"
Cons: ". My flight from Maui to Phoenix was not good. I was at the back near where they store foods and drinks. I had a bad stomach pain. I requested a hot tea. Flight attendant declined. Was a horrible flight because of my stomach pain. If I only knew American Airlines flight attendant are very rude. I will not book this airline again. Very poor customer service. The flight attendant was white , male, older."

Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours. We missed our connection from Montreal to SFO. Air Canada rebooked us so we flew Montreal to Toronto then Toronto to SFO.. It was nice that Air Canada proactively rebooked people with connections."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight overall. That being said, I don’t mean nd turbulence, the air pockets really get to me. Great service though"
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "The bad stuff overshadowed the good stuff. Bad experience."
Cons: "We took off late and never made up for the time lost which resulted in me missing my connection in Denver. Had to be rerouted to Toronto that night and spent night in hotel. Next day, we took off late and that resulted in me missing my connection in Denver... It took me two days instead of one to travel to my last destination. Not happy with Air Canada, three out four flights took off late. I also almost missed my flight in Montreal to go to Paris if it was not for the friendly and helpful Canadian Customs people."
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "To pay American dollars for baggage on AC coming back to CANADA or to pay AT ALL for a bag"
Cons: "International service quite a bit better, still not lufthansa standard, but better than crossfair/swiss"

Pros: "I liked the comfort and the service"
Cons: "the long delay in Montreal"

Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
Pros: "Some of the members of the crew were so nice"
Cons: "SFO to Montreal: no complimentary food; not even nuts. I was forced to check in my bag because it wouldn't fit in the tiny sizer."

Cons: "A little bit colder than I expected."
Pros: "Boarding early"

Pros: "Super polite crew"
Cons: "I could not see anything because I didn't know that I had to install the app on my laptop"
Pros: "I was landing in Montreal around 2am and my next flight wasn't until 18 hours later. I talked to the crew about suggestions for finding food, a good place to wait, and suggestions for seeing the city. They were fantastic. Suggested the 747 bus so I could see Montreal and helped point me in the right direction for where to be comfortable as I waited for the city to wake up. Thank you all so much!!"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "This was the greatest flying experience I've had in a long time. The crew was very pleasant and helpful. The in flight entertainment was spot on and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend them to anyone flying abroad. They were efficient in the boarding process as well. I will be flying them again!"
Pros: "I liked the flight coming back. The plane was very big and there was not many seats taken so the space was more than enough. Food was good."
Cons: "The employees were great on the plane but the boarding people didn't smile and was not able to help us out adequately."
Pros: "I am happy that Air Canada is unionized; the personnel are fine. I also like the tvs on the backs of the seats, with their wide range of shows. Particularly, I like Portlandia, though there was only one episode of that."
Cons: "I would not take Air Canada from YWG to the States ever again. It's not the right airline for that trip. AC doesn't offer any direct flights, as far as I can tell, between the small-market Prairie province and the US, and I had to go through security with my checked luggage twice (Canadian & American) each way. These factors leave open infinite possibilities for missing connections and enduring unexpected and grieviously long travel days. To go to Miami, for example, is a trip that took my Minneapolis sister $200 RT + a total of 6 travel hours. For me, from Winnipeg, it took $700 and (unexpectedly) 2 full days, into the wee hours, of flying (I missed a connection because my first flight was delayed, putatively because they switched the gate and wanted to wait for confused passengers, but also something, the pilot said, about maintenance and documents). AC's not especially affordable, even though oil prices are low--I expect because the Canadian dollar is so low. And finally, AC does not compensate for its uncompetitiveness by being any more accommodating of middle class holiday consumers than any other airline business model today. If they treated consumers with the humanity they used to 15 years ago, there might be some reason to endure the costs. As is, there's just no reason to take Air Canada to the US ever."
Pros: "I liked the crew and their service, boarding definitely made sense unlike other airlines. Of course they let the first class on first and then loyal members but after which they boarded the rear of the plane and worked their way up. More airlines should follow their lead, it makes the boarding process a lot easier when you aren't waiting on someone in the front to get settled in when your seat is in the back."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that arriving and departing I encountered the same issue, no wifi. Not sure if this was an issue that affected the whole fleet but this was disappointing for a 3+ hour flight both ways. This would have definitely been a higher rating if wifi was available."
Pros: "Short flight, as expected on smaller older plane"
Cons: "over 1 hour to check-in? what is the point of printing our boarding passes in advance? poor planning to have 2 flights checked in at the same time"
Pros: "The AC agent at the airport got me on a direct flight to Toronto -- even without me asking for it. Now that's what I call service! And the seat was at an emergency exit so I had LOTS of leg room. :-)"
Cons: "It was unfortunate that the wi-fi wasn't working but I had some reading material."
Pros: "They did beverage service and gave pretzel snacks. They had a cool map in the seat back in front of you so you could see where you were."
Pros: "The Crew was friendly enough, the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The crew "was" friendly enough, but didn't respond to the Call Attendant button (twice) when it was pushed, as my daughter was hungry. I had to go to the back of the plane and open the curtain and ask: "is it possible to get something to eat"? Our plane ticket costs an exorbitant amount, AND we are forced to pay for our meals....service would be the very minimum that we could expect.... ALSO: Although there was no charge for baggage on our flight out, and nothing written anywhere about a baggage charge, yet on the return flight we were hit with a $90 baggage fee!! The flight was already too expensive but that was just adding insult to injury"
Cons: "Crew barely friendly No food provided, had to pay a fortune for very bad food Had to pay for earphones"
Pros: "The crew which was very nice and always attentive. The entertainment center for its quite large offer in termed of recent releases and classic movies."
Cons: "The delayed departure which made me miss my connection flight. The middle seat in a crowed plane. The food which could be so much better (no taste, too greasy ...)"
Cons: "It was difficult to navigate the international arrival passages in Toronto. The only saving grace was to follow those who had been there before."
Cons: "I was stuck on a plane for 7 hours for a one hour flight"
Pros: ""Wen," the check in agent at LGA on 12/31/15 was absolutely wonderful. She is the kind of face every corporation needs to the public. She was caring, thoughtful, personable and cheerful. In addition, she got me sorted and checked in incredibly fast. Crew on board were great too, the tall blonde woman (sorry don't know name) was particularly gracious (ran out of champagne for purchase so she created her own fun new years drink and apologized profusely)."
Cons: "Movies only available if you rent an ipad or have your own laptop. Flight was on time boarding but half hour late departing."
Pros: "Nothing lost my luggage we had a delay on Dec 29 from Montreal got to Toronto 15min later we missed the connection plane and there was nothing y'all could of done no hotel rooms no coupon for food telling us that it was all booked wen we didn't not asked to be on the delay and me coming back on west jet on Dec 30 I've lost my luggage and kno body there knows were it's at"
Pros: "Crew had an attitude and my luggage still hasn't arrived."
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight. Only bought food, no snacks."
Pros: "2 hours delay, crew was not helpfull"
Cons: "What a joke this is ... I pay 25 $ to put my luggage in the suite . Apparently people who work at the gate don't seem to know that is 1 bag and one purse .... Too many people carrying all they luggage in the plane which make way less room for everyone and nobody at air canada say anything . please respect the rule that you have put in place ."
Cons: "Delayed, almost missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Good flight good price. I see negative reviews I feel those ppl are bitchin on a regular if everything isn't to Hollywood standards! The only thing I agree is that the entertainment should be included,BUT WHO CARES YOUR IN THE FREAKIN AIR! HOW THIS TECHNOLOGY BEING TAKEN FOR GRANTED IS CRAAAZY, ppl bitchin about their business class seats lmao!"
