Airline reviews

Pros: "Consistent experience that gets you from A to B while providing nice perks (free stame-day standby on the old Rapidair routes)."

Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."

Pros: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"

Pros: "All the crew we encountered were very efficient and helpful. The food was hot and really good, and we were well looked after, particularly on the Heathrow to Ottawa leg of the journey."

Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."

Pros: "Service counter staff was helpful to confirm seating although I did not like being put on standby. This happens too often with Air Canada."
Cons: "Stop the overbooking!!!!!"

Cons: "Not enough movie options"

Pros: "Smooth as you like"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."

Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."

Cons: "By the time the food cart got to the rear of the plane their was none of the good entrees left for my family including my to young boys who had already licked out what they wanted, but got nothing they liked."

Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"

Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"

Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."

Pros: "Helpfullness of Air Canada staff."
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"

Pros: "They allowed us to make an earlier connection without any fee. That was very kind. Thank you."

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."

Pros: "Not anyone's fault --- delayed due to Fog. Then on rout to Ottawa when they started selling food, they ran out of the main breakfast meals and or cheese plates by isle 19."

Pros: "I'll like it when i board."
Cons: "The fact i haven't boarded yet."

Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."

Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."

Cons: "The crew didn't finish the inflight service so a bunch of us didn't get drinks or snacks. This was all the more frustrating when the flight then circled Ottawa for 20 minutes before landing."

Pros: "When you plan travel over the Holiday season you expect hiccups and huge crowds and a lot of grumpy people in unrealistic hurries....his the me was not like that at all. Everyone was great except for security in Calgary!!! Don't know what the deal was but they set a record for the slowest I have EVER been in. It took so s almost an hour and there were not that many people in line...it was epic"

Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"

Cons: "N/c"

Pros: "Comfortable aircraft - 767"
Cons: "What food? Salt pretzels are not even truly safely edible!"

Pros: "On time Excellent take off and landing Good service"

Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."

Pros: "Everything, good food, good people, good times"

Pros: "same as above"

Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."

Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"

Pros: "I was asleep."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped."

Pros: "The entertainment is amazing. Did not expect it. Just download the UA app and it is connected to your device"
Cons: "Not their fault but we were detailed total of 3 hrs from Ontario to SFO and SFO to HNL due to aie traffiv in SFO. They handled it well"

Pros: "Have seatback TV and arrived on-time"
Cons: "Sitting in window seat"

Pros: "The crew was so polite and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing could be improved for this short flight!"

Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."

Pros: "Flight attendants tried but could not change situation"
Cons: "I losr one of two days- moving furniture Have to stay up another night to getready"

Pros: "Easy, convenient and everyone is nice and accommodating. We always get to SFO under an hour"

Pros: "The fact that I got fully refunded, even though I still lost out on $500+."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 12, and all that Kept happening was me receiving text messages about delays pushing my departure time back to 5:35pm. I missed a big birthday event I was throwing for my class that I teach, lost out on money spent for the event and missed out on all the memories made that night. I never got to leave, ended up cancelling my flight. What a waste of time. Seems to always happen when I fly through United."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air Canada flight from Ontario to SFO was operated by United. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and we ended up missing our connection. The customer service on the phone from both Air Canada and United would not take responsibility and continued to advise to call the other company to reschedule the flight. Not only did we miss our connection but our checked bag was rerouted onto another flight with no formal notification."

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "I liked how quick and easy the flight was; from boarding to exiting the plane in SFO."
Cons: "The size of the plane."

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "Upon arrival at my gate departing to Durham with a 2 year old handful. I was excited to hear the attendant call for travelers with small children to board first. The thought of boarding at the same time as everyone else was giving me anxiety."
Cons: "Once I shuffled through tons disgruntled travelers because of my "child privilege" the attendant rolled her eyes and took a deep breath at the amount of time it took me to get to my ticket. Mind you, it makes sense I would have it somewhere convenient, but like I said single traveller, 2 year old handful. She scanned my ticket and flogged her hair in the air telling me take my stuff to the front of the plane. While the other attendant tagged all my items."

Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."

Pros: "What did I like like that the pilot let us know what was going on on every moment and the stewardess was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable last flight 30 minute flight took an hour if not more and not knowing what gate my next flight is until I get there"

Pros: "This was a short flight. The only issue was the boarding. Took a while for me to get to my seat."

Cons: "The plane landed to San Francisco earlier than scheduled, but we could not get off the plane due to the gate not available. We were stuck on plane for about half an hour and I really worried about making my connection. I hope such arrangements are conducted more smoothly."

Pros: "nothing totally a rip off"
Cons: "I paid 125 for my hockey bag. Flight was delayed but no email or anything. Changing my flight was miserable staff so rude and people on phones can barely speak"

Cons: "TSA took forever, other than that. My flight boards at 0540 and I got there exactly at 0545. The plane already made its way to the runway and wouldn't wait an extra 10 mins for passengers to enter."

Pros: "2.5 HR layover lost bag"

Pros: "Plane was delayed over 2 & 1/2 hours for no apparent reason"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice."
Cons: "The flight was expensive and they wouldn't let us or anyone place carry ons in the over head bin. It was an expensive ticket and didn't include checked bags ($25 more). Carry-ons wound up being "stowed". It would have been nice to know before I bought the tickets that I needed a smaller carry on."

Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."

Cons: "I paid good money to be back by 6am however I was delayed and had flights cancelled which made me get home 10 hours later than I should have. This was an overnight flight, so all the places to buy food were closed- United didn't offer snacks or blankets or really anything for the troubles. There were kids also stranded."

Cons: "The cramped conditions. By the way, please add a "N/A" or "not relevant" or "not interested" option to your rating selections. Or allow categories to be left not rated. There was no entertainment on my flight and even if there was I probably wouldn't use it. I don't want to leave a rating at all for that but there's no way not to."

Pros: "It was on time And very convenient"

Pros: "We were not given seats together..."
Cons: "Busy and not well managed and we bought seats well in advance"

Cons: "Received several text messages announcing further delays in flight..."

Cons: "They over booked my flight, so I would have missed it had someone not gave up their seat for me. This was extremely disappointing begin that I had booked months in advance. I even picked my seats!"

Pros: "Once on the plane, the crew were great."
Cons: "not much leg room"

Cons: "Ticket agents did not communicate with passengers on why there was a delay and weren't willing to help passengers find alternate routes to their destination."

Cons: "They crushed my luggage but replaced the carry on after."

Pros: "Nice, respectful & very helpful attendance tall man @ the gait in SF prior boarding time. He help us getting the right seat for the trip. He was awesome help."
Cons: "Ontario delayed trip of almost 2 hrs. We could use that time more productively. Then, the other trip was a rush to made in time for Orlando. No entertainment in the plane."
