Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "L’attente et la difficulté à contrôler la température dans l’avion"
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time, food was pretty good"
Cons: "Toothpaste on board"
Pros: "Early flight was not as crowded"
Cons: "But was very busy just the same. Weather was poor"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Pros: "Seats are cramped - spacing is too small. Will avoid Air Canada in future"
Pros: "The speed of the flight to Canada and then to Tokyo was excellent. The room and the boarding crew on the plane were all awesome. The only complaint I had was about the food. I think they were going for more of a regional food choice flying to Tokyo. But the "snack" of a Cup of Ramen noodles seemed like a slap in the cultural face. I'm American and felt a little offended by the Ramen Noodles. But other than that the experience was awesome!"
Cons: "The cheap American Ramen Noodles"
Cons: "Food was grose. Seat was located on an emergency exit and supposed to be "preferred". Worst seat ever. Right next to the window is very uncomfortable since your stuck to the wall if the plane. Theres no window on that row. But this specific seat is awkward and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "on-board service"
Cons: "Late departures (about 30 minutes each way) with corresponding late arrivals. On the flight LAX to Vancouver due to late arrival of the plane, on the return flight supposedly because of a delay in loading luggage (the flight was fully boarded for 30+minutes before loading was completed). The late arrival in Los Angeles led to further delay as there was no available gate to accept us so we disembarked 50+minutes after the scheduled time."
Cons: "Had to spend the night in Toronto for flight delay"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr 15 min late."
Cons: "Very tight seats in economy"
Pros: "Seat were comfortable (however the struggle is when you have someone with long legs behind you...)"
Cons: "Entertainment was using the app, they could have had a sign at the gate so those of us that didn't have it could have download it before boarding."
Cons: "Boarding gate very small"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."
Pros: "female captain"
Pros: "Im not impressed with air canada. Every time I fly with them there is ALWAYS a delay. I understand that they cant help weather. But when your flight gets delayed over an hour due to their own computer system failing on the way to newyork and to not be compinsated at all its not acceptable. Even on my way home from newyork we were supose to board at 7:55pm and ended up boarding at 9:40pm. they decided to pick and choose people to be boarded on the earlier flight that was right before mine. Not at all fair. I used my whole 30 minutes free wifi (that cuts in and out constantly)before we found out about the delay then I was left with nothing. Not cool when you cant contact anyone. Also REALLY ANNOYING. and the staff are rude if you ask them anything. Then on the plane i wasted 5 bucks trying to buy wifi since you guys dont even have it on your planes for free like delta does. Even then you pay for the worst wifi on the planet where your messages take a half hour to go through and over my whole hour and 10 minute flight i had 3 messages because of your horrible gogo wifi. Waste of money. Overall this whole air canada experience made me want to rip my hair out and stressed me out to the point that I dont want to fly again. I will more then likely not fly with you guys if it can be avoided"
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and I did not get my baggage when I arrive at Boston airport.. I had no clothes or anything to wear for three weeks when I got to Boston. I complain the very day I got to Boston airport. Up till now the bag I checked in at Toronto airport has not been given to me. The funny thing is after I checked in, it was not scan at any other place except Toronto. So it got lost at Toronto where I checked in. All that am told of is the baggage can not be located. Three weeks I spend at Boston, I had nothing."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "One of the attendants yelled at anyone who needed to use the bathroom whenever the seatbelt sign was on. Understandable when the plane was actually experiencing turbulence but most of the time it was a smooth flight. Know there are regulations concerning this but I feel she could have been a bit nicer in her tone. Thankfully there was an empty seat just outside the toilet so that I could sit but anyone who arrived after me was told to return to their seat. When nature calls, sometimes it's impossible to walk very far."
Pros: "The meal (pasta) was good. The seat was roomy enough. The crew offered water and other beverages frequently. The"
Cons: "The snack (cold sandwich with nothing else) was disappointing. VERY limited entertainment options: rent an iPad and hope it has a movie you want to see, or nothing. Not good for a long flight Also had to restock the lavatory myself"
Pros: "The flight was good and the attendants on it were nice. Wasn't too uncomfortable and in flight entertainment was pretty decent."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour which in itself is okay as I understand flights get delayed and these things happen but the way in which the staff controlled the situation was horrible. They made multiple announcements making it sound like certain groups should go to the counter to be boarded (children, people needing assistance etc..) yet when these groups of people showed up at the counter the staff acted irritable saying they would need to wait their turn and that they havent even started boarding yet. This led to massive confusion and a huge pile up of people at the counter."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Like to be able to pick my seat ahead of time without a charge."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."
Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."
Pros: "Convenience and ease of flying through Abbotsford. Ground staff was amiable and helpful in Abbotsford."
Cons: "Not enough leg room!! I'm 6'2" tall. I can't simply make my legs shorter. The food choices were limited. Please make the fruit and cheese platter available all day."
Pros: "There we delays and baggage transfer issues at Montreal for connecting flights. There were delays leaving from Rome."
Cons: "Delays and comfort"
Pros: "Almost everything about the flight. Easy check-in. Didn't loose my bag which is always a great thing."
Cons: "The new app entertainment for Air Canada wasn't really explained by the crew but so I just doozed off."
Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."
Pros: "This is the only part of my round trip with Air Canada that went without a glitch ... the plane was on time and the airport staff I encountered in Toronto was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "I got a larger than normal seat,"
Cons: "The idiots lost my luggage, and it took two full days and about 20 phone calls to get it back."
Pros: "The cabin attendents were excellent. They were courteous, patient, friendly, helpful, professional. When we were waiting for take off for two hours, they did everything they could to make the situation less awful. I would travel Air Canada again just because of the cabin attendants."
Cons: "I can't say I enjoyed waiting on the tarmac for two hours because of what reportedly turns out to have been a data entry mistake, and I would have liked different movies in the onboard entertainment selection."
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Cons: "They charged us 25 dollars for a carry on bag which was unfair. They didn't charge anyone else. When I came back I was not charged. I would like a refund. The people were very rude! I take that bag on trips weekly. I should have not been charged."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"
Pros: "Free snacks , on board entertainment, friendly warm crew."
Pros: "Clean, quick flight."
Cons: "cramped, not enough carry-on room."
Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."
Pros: "nothing was overpowering good, just an average flight there & back"
Cons: "the entertainment system was terrible"
Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."
Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"
Pros: "On time departure, good landing, arrived 5 minutes early."
Cons: "Seats were really uncomfortable and the engine noise was loud."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough. Leg room was good too"
Cons: "Showed up to hear that my flight was delayed for 5 hours. I was offered a credit with my boarding pass, but couldn't use it to buy a beer (which I think I was entitled to after learning about the delay) or anything from the convenience store. So basically my scheduled arrival time of 4pm ended up being 2am. Good thing I got to use my non-refundable hotel for a whopping 3 hours... After being told that this is apparently the normal experience for Air Canada, I don't see myself booking again anytime soon."
Pros: "Boarding and loading of the plane was fine until the generator didn't want to start."
Cons: "generator broken, waited/delayed IN plane 1.5hr+, no snacks or gift certificate given. Entertainment system kept restarting as a result."
Pros: "Most comfortable seat on any airplane I've ever been on, and it was coach!"
Cons: "Same as above! I don't even went to Toronto!"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional, and the food and beverage on the Lufthansa transatlantic sector were better than US carriers offer."
Cons: "The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat. I will avoid this aircraft if possible in the future."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, professional, and communicative."
Pros: "Comfort was fair"
Cons: "It was delayed - enough to miss the flight"
Cons: "The flight took off late due to baggage not being loaded in a timely manner and the wait on the flight when we arrived was much longer due to equipment not being handled properly; because of this my family and I missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "Everything was great. Flight attendants were enthusiastic and friendly."
Pros: "Not a crowded flight, Norfolk is usually a easy transit even when busy."
Cons: "Very cramped seating when your 6’ 260;"
Cons: "a coach class seat is a chair of torture!!!!"
Pros: "Early arrival. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Check in was confusing."
Pros: "Everything was excellent but the decent was probably the roughest I've ever experienced. The poor Stewart ran with bags and wet naps up to touch down. The beverage and pretzels were great."
Cons: "Everything was excellent. We did receive a beverage but no pretzels."
Pros: "The check in process"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Cons: "The delays and cancellations overwhelmed the gate attendant. She was not able to effectively manage the situation and quickly became chaotic"

Cons: "Tsa frisk"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "I hit the side of my foot on a sharp piece if metal that was exposed on the right side of my seat. I bled and took pictures"
Pros: "Flint got delayed"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged no longer usable"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Missed my 2nd flight. Stuck overnight at airport. Vacation ruined"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight without telling me and you made me miss my flight to Sydney. Your staff didn't help. I want to be compensated for my flight that I missed"
Cons: "Something was wrong with the plane and I miss work"
Pros: "Very little. Flight crews were nice"
Cons: "Flights were delayed by several hours on two occasions. Staff were less than helpful and generally unknowledgable."
Cons: "Near 5 hour delay at departure airport with very poor communication."
Pros: "The space and entertainment was good"
Cons: "2 hrs delay"
Cons: "Air attendant is disruptive and throwing her own opinions at people without listening and disrespectfulness. But it was a good chance for me to debating in English."
Pros: "The plane was not very full...that made the experience so nice. All passengers were there early and boarded quickly allowing us to leave the ground ahead of schedule. They offer entertainment using their app on your phone or notepad."
Pros: "Pleasent crew"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed for an excessive amount of time before the flight was finally Cancelled. Got stuck waiting for over 7hrs before the flight was eventually cancelled. Barley made it home in time for my grandfather's funeral as a result."
Pros: "Free wifi, snack was yummy"
Pros: "I had not been given a choice of gluten free meal before boarding so I declined the food offered, and the attendant, without my asking her to , went and found something gluten free."
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work well."
Cons: "Food,crew could be better"
Pros: "Pilot did a great job tried to hit as little turbulence as possible. Smooth landing. Flight attendants were very nice from Norfolk to Newark"
Cons: "Both planes were late, and you sent this questionnaire before flight had even arrived in Omaha"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Went with another airline. Waited 1:20 to get assistance"
Pros: "Onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "United terminal gate crew at Norfolk International was horrible."
Pros: "All flights on time. Always I used the same apps for my tickets!!"
Pros: "The people were really nice. We left on time or early on most flights which was also nice. Like the variety of liquor and prices for beverage that's offered."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment doesn't compare to delta. Our last plane was getting retired so it didn't have any in flight entertainment and the snacks tasted really old. The other flights had spotty connection at best and was hard to connect to their movies."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "I don't think it's fair that you don't any money back of you cancel your plane ticket. It shouldn't matter what type of ticket it was. You should at least be allowed a voucher for the amount of the ticket at a later date. Even if it's a percentage off, you should be allowed something. How is it that you can buy a car worth thousands, and be allowed to return it under the Lemon Law. When a company called can make billions of dollars doing this, it's just taking advantage of the little people."
Pros: "wheelchair and cart to get to my plane because of a knee injury"
Pros: "Norfolk is always good and professional"
Pros: "The flights were on the empty side so there was an open seat next to me"
Cons: "The first flight got delayed so I missed my connection. My connecting flight got delayed about five times and sat on the runway for over an hour. I ended getting home at eleven PM when I was anticipating getting home st 9:45 AM"
Cons: "Our flight had a "mechanical delay" which drug on for several hours (every 30 min there would be another 30 min delay). This eventually meant we would miss our connection to Munich and had to be rescheduled to the following day. The next day we had another round of "mechanical delays" and just barely made the connection."
Cons: "Typical horror story... Lied to by gate attendants... Hours late to destination with no apologies... Essentially got totally screwed without reimbursement."
Pros: "Absoluteky nothing. I mean literally NOTHING. I take that back, a pilot for another flight who saw my predicament and tried his best to help me figure which flight to take in the morning. Also, as far as floors go, the airport terminal was maybe only the ninth worst I've slept on. Kudos!"
Cons: "Wretched customer service. Flight delayed multiple hours after my ride departed and stranded at airport for fourteen hours with no food or beverage comps, or even kindness from the their agents. Was told "oh well, weather". I had left my remaining cash (and didn't bring my card) with my lady friend to get the kids some nice things (she is driving back on a seperate day and was already two hours away by the time we found out flight wasn't happening in time) and absolutely zero compassion given by United. Also, required to add an 80 dollar uber when I get home because there will be no ride as my orginal ride can't make it. May also have to call out of work. Not even an offer to bump my seat on next flight to close to the cabin or exit row. Two hours on phone with customer service with no offers of even slight compensation even when this entire situation is explained. I get it. I agreed to terms of service, but your service sucked and is costing me an armful of money at this point, wouldn't it be in the slightest interest of theirs to give me a meal, or a room or even a lousy coffee?"
Cons: "After getting pushed back 3 times it finally got canceled and left me and 4 other strangers to drive back home so I wouldn't miss work. Another not being late to work in the military is not good to go."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and snacks were average"
Cons: "The seat back was very uncomfortable but this was a short flight with a small plane. Not terrible but below average."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A miserable 13 hour flight. The wifi did not work the entire trip and the movies shown on the large screens kept "skipping" as well. There were no screens on the seat backs to watch movies. (And since wi fi wasn't working I couldn't watch movies on iPad either.). The food was overcooked and inedible."
Pros: "Fast, friendly, on time"
Pros: "I was thankful that my flight was on time leaving both stops"
