Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good service."
Cons: "The size and quantity of carry on luggage needs to be restricted. The actual size and number of pieces needs to be enforced. The serving of liquor to passengers should be better monitored."
Pros: "Boarding in Frankfurt was pretty good as all zones had their own gates- somethinh I am missing at YYZ."
Cons: "Legroom is getting tighter and tighter in the Economy class and meals are getting smaller and smaller as the trays are apperaing bigger and bigger..."
Pros: "Kind, friendly staff, boarded on time"
Pros: "The staff was positive, the plane had a movie to watch (although quite a dated system), but there was only drinks given so not much to write home about there."
Pros: "The staff was kind and courteous. Food was ok and they gave us snacks"
Cons: "The seats on the air rouge plane’s were tiny. I’m 5’2 and I was ok because my seat-mate was also small, but if you’re tall or wide, these flights will be uncomfortable. Note: this was an international flight(8hrs). Small seats and no in-flight movie. There was a flight delay due to weather (40 mins) on the way home. I get it. On the way to our destination there was a 4 hour delay due to a problem at the airport. Though frustrating, probably not air canada’s Fault."
Pros: "That we got back safe during a snow storm."
Cons: "The staff were not friendly. I politely tried to give two flight attendants my garbage as they were collecting and because they already passed me they looked at me and ignored me. It’s also crazy that you pay so much for a flight and then have to pay for luggage and a meal when it’s a 4-5 hour flight. Flight was delayed twice. Which I can understand due to weather."
Cons: "4 hours delay to YYZ from MSP, 2 hours delayed to MSP from YYZ."
Pros: "The food and service were very good."
Cons: "The entertainment system is a bit outdated and had to be rebooted more than once. But this was only a minor inconvenience."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "Video screen loose and no volume control, so Oud I couldn't watch. No food-na more applicable. Seats uncomfortable and tight."
Cons: "Flight was more than hour delayed. When it hit the turbulence zone it was insanely scary. I know it's nobody's fault but leaves bad felling about the flight."
Cons: "weather grounded non stop flight... required my finding a hotel for overnight... loss of MSP hotel, and two days rental car, too... costly and not reimbursable because "act of nature"... earliest way to MSP they said was via Nashville w/long layover... then connecting to Delta upon arrival in MSP, checked bag didn't arrive... it was filled w/medical equipment and AC couldn't tell us where it was... Delta bent over backwards to assist... AC was non-commital and not helpful at all... waited for incoming flights at the airport MSP for 8 hours... no bag... finally, Delta gave us vouchers for dinner and put us in a hotel... when it as really Air Canada's fault... etc, etc..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed both lengths. We have been offered one cup of water and no other drinks on 8 hours flight from Toronto to Budapest! There were no flight attendants asking us if we need anything. We had to wait 1 hour and 20 minutes at Budapest airport for our luggage."
Cons: "cramped no food"
Pros: "Flights attendants were very attentive and helpful on flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was quite outdated and not user friendly, but it was nice to have it offered."
Cons: "Felt like a budget flight. We've flown air Canada in the past and this flight seemed like their low end fleet"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "-majority of tvs were shorted out and not working -plane was heavily delayed so didn't make second transfer flight -one attendant gave us wrong directions to next gate at LAX -LAX airport was under heavy construction which delayed gating gate to gate -Customer service offered no options to how to get to San Diego -now we are in debt with a car rental, gas, and having to go back to the airport twice for the baggage -most likely won't be using United Airlines again"
Cons: "I wish Air Canada sent check-in emails for flights in as well as out. I didn't get a reminder check-in email when I was flying out and that worried me a bit that there may be something wrong with my reservation. It also irritated me that because I had booked my flight through Kayak and not Air Canada directly I was not able to make any changes to the reservation online - I had to call their reservation phone number (from another country) and be put on hold for 20 minutes (so needless to say it was an expensive phone call)."
Pros: "My company on the plane was lovely: an older Peruvian woman sharing her experiences in the country."
Cons: "The plane took off 40 minutes late because we were waiting on folks: Can this be a normal standard?! The food was difficult to stomach. But worst of all, the attendants were not kind or particularly helpful. They seemed hurried. At one point when offering drinks down the aisles, the 2 attendants even commented that they were going to beat the other cart down the aisle this time. Furthermore, there was a blind man near us across the aisle. I couldn't see much of what was going on, but the woman next to me seemed rather distraught that so little help was offered to him. When food was served, he couldn't find his cutlery and ate with his hands. When he needed to use the bathroom, he pressed the button for assistance but no one came. Others stepped in to help. When asked if someone would help the man at the gate, an attendant rather condescendingly answered that of course, every handicapped guest will be assisted through the airport. The flight primarily consisted of Peruvians. I can only hope this poor service was a reflection of all of Air Canada, and not what the people of Peru receive regularly. It was as if the attendants were trying to discipline. There were no niceties. Perhaps the language barrier was too much."
Pros: "Staff was really friendly, the flight attendant was even wearing a little witch hat for Halloween, which I really liked. Due to an underbooked flight, we had free choice of seat, because I originally was booked on an aisle seat, I could change to a window seat, that was nice. Since it was a small machine from Toronto to Minneapolis (a little more than 1,5h flight), there was no entertainment system, besides the nice view out of the window. And who likes to start a movie during such a short flight, to not be able to finish it? They also ask you to hand in your carry-on before you enter the plane, because there is not enough space for it inside, which I liked, no wiggeling along the aisle with a little trolley, I just fetched it outside the plane after we landed."
Cons: "Unfortunately, Air Canada didn't serve gluten-free snacks on any of my flights yet (I had good gluten free food though). This is not meant as a negative review, because as an allergic you're usually prepared. It's more a suggestion for gluten-free snacks, peanuts or m&m's work as well as most gummy bears or chocolates :)"
Pros: "they food I did purchase was pretty good."
Cons: "no snack at all, was all food for purchase. The inflight entertainment was nothing if you didn't have their Air Canada App."
Pros: "We got home but later then expected."
Cons: "Coming home late. Going thru customs took too long. No one to help with directions at Toronto Airport"
Pros: "- On time performance - Friendly crew - Comfortable flights"
Cons: "The gate facility at the Toronto airport was worse than a bus terminal. It was over-crowded and chaotic. Again, we boarded through the tarmac and not through a walkway."
Cons: "Though not in your control, we had a two hour late start. The gate area was crowded with too little seating. It was so far from the main airport area that refreshments were hard to get. The airline did give some snacks but nothing very substantial. Our 8:30 something flight didn't get off until after 10."
Cons: "The boarding gate for small aircraft is very far away from the terminal. There was not enough seating for all those waiting for flights"
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Strong stink coming from bathroom. We were seated toward he back (maybe 2-3 rows from the restroom and it was strong smelling at times."
Pros: "Really enoyed the personal entertainment system. 12 hours is a long flight and the entertainment really helped pass the time away. It was fun seeing the flight status on the monitor and watching movies. We were fed very well. I believe we had 3 meals and a snack. Attendants came by to see if we needed more to drink too."
Cons: "It was a huge plane with about 500 people on board. Not a lot of space for getting up an walking much. Not a lot of space between seat rows. I guess that's just the way things are. Had a huge issue with checked baggage [see below] but don't know which airline was at fault although the AIr Canada employee who checked our baggage in Washington, DC said we wouldn't see our bags again until we arrived at Hirochima, our final destination."
Cons: "The flight attendants were overwhelmingly rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "Delayed baggage took 3 days to get to my home. Flight attendant had assured me that the bag (sports equipment) made the connection which it hadn't."
Pros: "Able to check carry on before boarding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and the lounge was not large enough to accommodate all of the passengers in Toronto."
Cons: "On the air canada website it said food included on international flights but when I got on the plane they said Panama - Toronto was not covered as International. ...really?"
Pros: "Very smooth landing!"
Cons: "PA volume was bit loud"
Pros: "The entertainement system was great, unfortunately some of the movies were said to have english subtitles, but no matter how hard I tried... None."
Cons: "I wish I could of had a vegetarian meal, but there was no flexibility and I don't believe I was offered the choice during check-in...."
Cons: "Overly crowded in the are awaiting for flight. It was not organized well and you could tell staff was getting on edge from customers asking about boarding. The departure times should be spread out to avoid this."
Pros: "You got me home"
Cons: "I think I had the only seat on the plane with a broken audio port for my ear buds"
Pros: "Nothing at all actually"
Cons: "Old tiny plane, delayed two hours because of what seemed like sheer stupidity. I mean we had to wait an extra 30 mins on top of the regular delay time because they loaded the bags wrong. I had already been traveling over 24 hours due to the time zone differences and this last flight was just intolerable. Certainly it could have been worse, but this was just terrible already."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good and the staff did reasonably well even though most of the customers were clearly unhappy."
Cons: "A majority of flights run by Air Canada to the US were delayed. If this had been due to weather, fine, but at least our delay was caused by mechanical malfunction. Our flight was delayed for 5 hours due to multiple different mechanical issues including that the bathroom would not function during the entire flight, the wing flap had issues and the door would not seal correctly. The flight immediately preceding ours to Minneapolis was also delayed by over 4 hours. Surprisingly the flight before that also had a bathroom malfunction that prevented customers from using the bathroom. If this was the exception we could understand, but looking at the history of our flight, it's only on time 23% of the time. The poor customer service people must hate their lives. Something needs to change."
Pros: "Customer care hotline service over the phone was great! They took care of all my problems and was very nice."
Cons: "Customer service at the airport needs to improve tremendously!"
Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
Pros: "Crew was respectable and the food was good."
Cons: "The policy of having to check-in in order to have a seat is ridiculous and borderline racketeering. If one pays for a flight, they should get the ticket they paid for. It should not be based on whether they check-in because Air Canada wants to make more money on selling their seat because they didn't check-in. This is unacceptable. Since it's a company policy, my wife and I would enforce our own policy in response: we will choose not to fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "It was short, thank goodness since our flight was delayed twice."
Cons: "The small claustrophobic feel of the plane. Every time the steward pushed the cart up,the aisle he bumped into me and was kind of rude."
Pros: "The Boeing airplane was either new or upgraded with plenty of in flight entertainment. In addition it was clean and fresh. The seats seemed to have more legroom than some I have flown. I could actually use my notebook on the tray stand. I was traveling on the same plane with my wife but we could only get separate seats. I decided to ask before boarding if they could put us together for such a long flight and they took my boarding pass and actually tried. The lady I checked in with was extremely gracious. She passed our info along to the head attendant on the flight who came and found us and told us she had found seats together. We had already done some seat switching with the kind people around us and managed to get together. The head attendant was happy for us."
Cons: "Long flight, when we got close to Tel Aviv, a guy attendant who wasn't on my side yelled at me from the other ailse and scolded me for not being locked in 30 minutes ahead of time and threatened to write me up. He was red faced. The head flight attendant made a call over the intercom, I jumped up and started stowing my computer and he comes by 30 seconds later and literally yelled across the plane. He must have had to clean a bathroom up that someone let loose in. I looked on the flight time register on the screen when I was locked in and we were 35 minutes out. Not quite a rule breaker was I."
Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, flight on time, service and staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding should be from the rear of the aircraft to reduce congestion in the aisles. Need more vegetarian food options."
Cons: "After a sprint through the aiport, saw the flight was delayed an hour once at the counter. Meaning my connection in Copenhagen would most probably be missed. Entertainement system issues on flght. Luggage was left behing in Copenhagen"
Pros: "Got me to minneapolis"
Cons: "Boarded via small rickety stairs. Flight delayed over an hour."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, so nothing to ratr"
Pros: "Crew nice. Had the row to myself so room to stretch out and made me feel safer from others germs"
Pros: "Better comfortable seats. And snack options"
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Cons: "The next time I'm going to drive to Chicago to save $500.00 or more on my trip to South America or use a different airline."
Pros: "I booked the basic economy and I was pleased that I had a row to myself. I was nervous it was going to be a tight flight because of the smaller plane. Also I enjoyed the onboard movies available on our personal devices."
Cons: "I wish I knew I couldn't bring my carry on with me!!! United is always finding ways to screw the passenger's experience. I have a wedding to go to and needed my small duffle carry on with me and because I got a "basic economy" ticket, this was not possible. Some forewarning of this insanity would have been helpful! Really so annoyed!"
Cons: "There was a very large couple sitting in seat to my right. I'm 6'3 250 so not small. It had a rear bathroom and I had people banging on me the whole flight!!!!!! She could have moved some people around!!!! The worst flight of my life!!!! It's about customer service."
Pros: "I was so happy to find a cheap one way flight at the last minute. Was able to get my son home for the weekend. Otherwise he would hace had to stay in Chicago for the night. Super easy and efficient."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and quickly, (e.g. check in, baggage, seat and storage) Staff were helpful and friendly."
Pros: "First of all, the crew was amazing. I had just been traveling for about 20 hours and I had a seat towards the back of the economy section. After traveling that long, I was getting antsy to be at my destination, and I asked the gate agent if she could bump me to a row towards the front of economy- thankfully the plane wasn't full, and she was able to! It's the little things like that, that are what make me fly United. Also, the cabin crew on the flight was great! Of course, the economy section of the plane wasn't an ideal amount of space, but come on- it was an hour flight, and they did a good job of trying to spread people out so that the rows weren't packed."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer because the plane was being cleaned. I believe they said the overnight flight got in a little late and they still had to clean the plane. We boarded late, but still got to our destination early. Negative turned into a positive- you can't beat that!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Good legroom. I was at an exit row. Crew was cheerful. Plane seemed pretty new and clean."
Cons: "Delayed departure. And had to sit on tarmac on arrival in Minneapolis waiting for other plane to leave our gate."
Pros: "Was given a couple of blankets that I asked for. Everyone was very professional. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Departure time changed at least six times. Gate and plane were both unbearably cold - passengers were all complaining. Departure gate at EWR was gross, run-down, and did not have working outlets."
Pros: "This flight was very relaxing as it could be. I do not like to fly but the crew made it very easy to relax and get comfortable."
Pros: "This was a nonstop flight with Air Canada, in cooperation with United Airlines"
Cons: "A small plane, crowded and full, for a non stop, international flight. Obviously, United prefers to use the larger, more comfortable planes for flights through their hub in Chicago- which is always a hot mess!"
Pros: "The Crew. Honestly I hope United doesn't mess up the one thing going for them."
Pros: "The flight attendant, Elizabeth, was great! She was friendly and helpful. She made our flight more enjoyable."
Cons: "The ranch snack mix was kinda spicy and had a couple of weird things in with the pretzels. I would've liked it better if it was just regular pretzels. In fact, both my boyfriend and I only ate the pretzels part of it, because we didn't like the other parts."
Pros: "How a passenger emergency was handled. We were kept very well informed"
Pros: "It was my grandson's first plane ride. They let us board early because I was managing two carry on suitcases. The flight was smooth and he loved the apple juice. He learned so much by looking out the window and seeing the ground and the clouds."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. My seat was taken by someone else but crew helped me find another seat. (Which was fine by me). Pilot kept passengers in formed of weather conditions and bumpy ride."
Cons: "I didn't get what I paid for and the person next to me got more than they paid for. I expect a refund."
Pros: "The landing was not good as we had turbulance. Other than that, everything was good."
Pros: "The staff on the plane were very good."
Cons: "The flight was oversold which apparently gave the employee at the gate a reason to be rude. Also the plane was freezing. People were pulling out blankets and covering themselves with anything available."
Pros: "Economy plus was worth the extra $25."
Pros: "Decent leg room, newer looking air plane"
Cons: "Surly crew didn't allow me to board as an elite member."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and kind, even with the issues with our departure."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over and over again due to "late crew" and after 2 hours, when we finally did board, we sat on the plane for over an hour before taking off."
Pros: "Price was good. Flight attendant was particularly good and promptly checked and verified I had a wheelchair secured for Mpls. Alll flight attendants held positive personable attitude. Arrived on time"
Cons: "No wifi. No movie."
Pros: "A good selection of recent movies to watch"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because we didn't have a pilot? They did get a pilot quickly though and the flight was shorter than originally stated so we got there about the same time we were originally expecting."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "The price was great"
Cons: "The inability to choose a seat without paying a premium price left me in the last row without a reclining seat. I'm 6'3" and those seats should be considered torture"
Pros: "Flight was very quick and comfortable once we took off."
Cons: "Delay once boarding was finished with a long taxi period. Plane was over-fueled and had to be defueld while we were already seated."
Pros: "Boarding and deplaining went smoothly"
Cons: "Rear seats didn't recline and we're not as comfortable as other passengers"
Pros: "The flight staff were really nice"
Pros: "Nothing. The flight didn't exist."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled for aircraft maintenance with very little notice (waiting at the gate) and the next available flight didn't leave until the next day. Got put up in a $75 airport hotel room WITHOUT my luggage and was provided a $10 food voucher for meals. Are you kidding me??? So, I must pay for your problem? This was ridiculous and extremely inconvenient."
Cons: "Had to change plans because the septic line wasn't taken care of so the lines were frozen. The plane wasn't warmed up for us to board. We were told to exit the plane and go to another terminal but never explaned to take the shuttle . I took the Tran and had to go back through security and almost missed the plane. I was the last person to board. This was my 1st time traveling to that airport. No way to know that the Tran would require me to pass through security checkpoint again. Get better communication with people. The lady at the desk was just saying go to terminal A! They should have had a person directing all of us to go to the shuttle and bussed us to the terminal."
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable. ...no entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "3 seperate broken or missing parts on planes? How could I be comfortable with United moving forward? I've never had that problem on any other airlines."
Pros: "We flew to Minneapolis via Atlanta due to snowstorm that severly impacted Newark."
Pros: "Flying with a guitar has never been so easy. Thanks United for being musician-friendly!"
Cons: "the trip from san fran to Minneapolis was good but sitting on the tarmac landing in Minneapolis being told that we could not park at the gate to unload due to snow was inaccurate and frustrating"
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great and helpful. The plane was spotless and looked brand new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Everything went well and was on time"
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hr late due to misplaced equipment and paperwork."
Cons: "Everything seemed to go smoothly until we landed & there was no gate for us to deplane. At first we sat for 45 mins is what the pilot said, then he chimed on again & he said 1 hour, then after an hour it was 45 mins. Then 10 more mins which turned to 30. I had missed my ride & I had to find child care for my 5 kids that were waiting for me to pick them up. Landed in time but couldn't get off."
Pros: "The plane had very nice seats and I wasn't squished as usual on other airlines planes."
Cons: "When it came time to board my flight the person told me to go ahead and I was in wheelchair and had to push wheelchair with my bags to the plane myself. Very rushed and not good for me at all. I felt I had no choice in the matter and she was not a nice person to me. She rushed me and scowled and told me to just go.... This survey asks about food and entertainment which there was none off yet I have to answer."
Pros: "The flight there was better than the flight back. Everyone was friendlier and more attentive, but overall I wouldn't say there is anything that I didn't like."
Cons: "Major delays for flight, changed twice."
