Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "I loved everything!"
Pros: "Everything, we were on time and everything was perfect."
Pros: "Generally, AC flights are OK to good, but they have a problem with SFO, especially from YVR."
Cons: "Six hours late. Mechanical problem. Boarding crew often incomprehensible but we got a food voucher. On board, two crew members in general seating were disinterested to the point of rudeness. I flew at least eight times this year in NA and Europe. These guys were the worst! It was like WE kept them late."
Pros: "Plesant ride"
Cons: "Flight took longer to depart due to boarding and de-icing"
Pros: "Comfortable aisle seat"
Cons: "Better first class deals"
Cons: "No video screens for entertainment. If you want to use in flight entertainment, you need to download the Air Canada app prior to boarding."
Pros: "I like that we made it safely."
Cons: "The crew seemed to not like their job and were very short with customers."
Pros: "Needs wifi"
Pros: "My group of five arrived to the airport late (one hour before the flight took off), but the crew worked together to quickly process all of us and get us through to ensure that we didn't miss our flight. We really appreciated it!"
Pros: "Clean well maintained aircraft, friendly staff"
Cons: "Not even SNACKS are free anymore on Air Canada!"
Pros: "The plane was really comfy and the service on board was outstanding"
Pros: "Overall it was a quick and painless flight. The crew was friendly and we had no problems!"
Pros: "On time, smooth, nice crew."
Cons: "I don't like the fakt you have to pay for food on not so short flight( over 5 hours). Addicionaly, pay machines are apparently old fashion because they only take Visa. I can pay with my Master Card anywhere else in the world but Air Canada."
Pros: "The trip from Kelowna to Vancouver was amazing. Quick very pleasant."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not comfortable at all, seats are too crowded, and cabin was way too hot!! Some ppl had to undress their babies..."
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Cons: "Actually I flew from Buenos Aires to Vancouver on Air Canada. I had paid to prebook my seats both on the B.A.-Torononto leg and also Toronto to Vancouver. Did not get either of the seats I had paid and prebooked. Therefore Air Canada is taking money but not providing the service or product...... technically this is stealing"
Pros: "Aircraft was originally booked solid, but a last minute change of aircraft switched us to a larger aircraft so everyone could spread out and get a little more room. Crew was energetic, enthusiastic and pleasant. Overall the flight was above average, mainly due to the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is always an issue (I'm 6'4"). Thankfully this flight was not booked solid and there was no one sitting in that dread middle seat. The food was Mediocre at best. We ordered a pizza for lunch, the toppings apparently shifted in flight and the cheese and pepperoni slid off the crust and was sitting on one side of the box with the crust on the other... (Advice - Stick with sandwiches, crackers and cheese, etc. instead of the hot meals on Air Canada)."
Pros: "Reliable. Easy to board. On time!"
Pros: "the crew members were friendly"
Cons: "that you don't give any snacks for price of ticket. at least peanuts or pretzels. that's ridiculous. southwest reigns."
Pros: "We needed a wheel chair assistance. From Toronto to the gate, it was very good."
Cons: "Much delay before take off without real announcement to that effect. Unbearably heat once we got on board and waiting to take off- afraid of fainting."
Pros: "When my food was late they refunded it"
Cons: "The boarding times were quite far behind The lack of TVs was unfortunate, and renting an ipad instead for more money is cheap."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and was quite organized."
Pros: "I liked all the assistant they gave to make a person comfortable."
Cons: "That we had no choice for the seat on the plane"
Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!"
Cons: "Someone else was sitting in our seats and when asked they said they had lost their boarding pass and hence don't know their seat number. I called the flight attendant for help and he checked our boarding passes and asked us to wait at the back of the plane. He stood there for another 10-15 minutes and we were not helped. Finally, another flight crew member came down to the back and asked us to sit in a row almost to the back with barely any legroom. I am 6'2" and was cramped into the seat. It was horrible!!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The food options were very limited. On such a long flight, I would recommend stocking up more."
Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "No food. Pretzels or cookies."
Pros: "quick enough flight"
Cons: "no in-flight entertainment, not power outlets, lack of leg room"
Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Pros: "Loved the leg room. Flight was on time and got our luggages on time, flight attendants were very nice and helpful! overall flight was very comfortable. will fly with Air Canada in the future again :)"
Pros: "Extra leg room even though I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "Long wait at the Claims Dept. because my luggage was broken."
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick, efficient, on time"
Cons: "Seats had least legroom of any plane I can remember. I'm not that tall and my knees were in the seat pocket the whole 5 hr flight. Also, the seats could stand to be a lot cushier. I felt like I was sitting on a piece of cardboard after the first 2 hours."
Cons: "My luggage got lost. That happens sometimes. It showed up in NY after 2 days, but did not arrive at my house until FIVE days later. And even then, the delivery company contracted by air canada would not bring it to my front door, so I had to leave my building to go meet them. With small kids in the house and being home alWhy is this my responsibility?"
Cons: "it was two hours late"
Pros: "Crew Only."
Cons: "AC website states for US and Canada allow 120 mins. We arrived to the airport 130 mins inadvance. We had no checkin bags but we almost missed our flight. (Many people did miss our flight). You need to allow at least 2 -3 hrs for US security checks. Because we almost missed our flight, we didn't have time to purchase food preboarding and the selection in the plane was very limited. My partner is 6'1 and the seat was extremely uncomfortable for him and it was not in our budget to upgrade. There was no free entertainment in the plane. You needed to rent a tableT!"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "The person we sat next to. And the great flying of the pilots."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Requested a wheel chair from the curb . Upon arrival, no wheel chair. we waited and waited. Then my friend went and got a wheel chair for me. we then joined our two friends, who also had wheelchairs. however, they had first class and was taken immediately to the first class lounge. I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way. Air Canada mad sure of that. also Not a peanut unless we spent money!!!"
Cons: "Misinformation on baggage allowance for Tango flights."
Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."
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: "AIR CANADA charged departure time after original reservation was made for our return trip to a later time that was inconvenient that resulted in a hardship driving for ( senior citizens) arriving home after a 4 hour drive from the airport to Ocala, FL.home arriving at 1 AM."
Pros: "as above"
Cons: "They charge for movies."
