Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing crew and Ground staff. Check in and bag check in was really smooth and fast."
Cons: "Maybe some more options of snacks. In flight entertainment was not working so can’t say much about it."
Cons: "Crowded and no food"
Pros: "It's a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"
Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"
Cons: "You should offer free wifi! Air Canada should lead the way and be above the rest!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to provide a good service."
Cons: "Wider seats and more leg room. The return trip from Ottawa to Vancouver was over $1200. I think that’s quite pricey given that any food or alcoholic beverage had to be purchased at an extra cost."
Pros: "Great staff!"
Pros: "The 777 is excellent. Service very friendly. Food is good. One leg flight is super good"
Cons: "Apparently the pilots are allowed to smoke on these long flights. In this trip it was not bad but on previous flights it was really bad"
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Pros: "On time and pleasant staff"
Pros: "Breakfast was excellent"
Cons: "TV screen were too dark"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Flight was smooth once airborne"
Cons: "Delayed Flight Seats seemed very small for an Air Canada Plane"
Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "It took two air hostesses two hours to service the entire cabin. There is a training issue. I would not fly air canada again."
Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."
Cons: "Late departure"
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: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Cons: "Not so bad..."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"
Cons: "On a 4+ hour flight, I was really surprised that there were no snacks or food included in the ticket; only paid "cafe" options."
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"
Cons: "There was NO complementary food for a 5 hour flight. I didn't have a credit card to purchase anything"
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Very slow service"
Pros: "Leaving and never coming back!"
Cons: "Psychotic and delusional crew that take bad customer service to a whole new level!"

Cons: "Delayed , causing delays and missed apt at destination"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "We were dehydrated and the flight attendants were stingy with WATER."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "I was rebooked so my new flight AC 705 was directed straight to Toronto. Only thing I disliked was that gentleman who was left at the gate for my original flight at 8:30am. He was rude!!!!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Unable to buy food or drinks on plane without a credit. I don't have one !!!"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."
Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."
Cons: "2 hour delay."
Pros: "Things were new"
Cons: "Seats were smaller, legroom was less, seatbacks when fully upright push your heard forward so when I fell asleep, my head kept falling, NO FREE ENTERTAINMENT. They tell you to download the app mid-flight to get free entertainment, but you need to pay for wifi to access the app store."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The persons sitting next to me"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "delayed 2.5 hrs, stood in jetway for 15 mins while crew fixed seatbelt issue. snack was poor; limited options for soda, small pour & only pretzels as snack!"
Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Cons: "Had a one hour delay on thtarmac waiting for de-icing...weather related."
Pros: "Good progress info in-flight from cockpit"
Cons: "TSA lines at SFO Terminal 3 are a zoo, precheck included. United gates had no facilities available to plug in a charger. C'mon folks, it's 2017, one wall outlet with two kids sprawled on the carpet next to it isn't enough. The 'grab a snack' box had one crumpled cellophane package of peanut butter crackers. Yum."
Cons: "I appreciate the in-flight entertainment idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired."
Cons: "Personal entertainment did not work. Most first and business class airlines have a screen to see the movies."
Pros: "Flight was late"
Cons: "Thirty minute delay with pushback in San Francisco"
Cons: "some folks didn't use ear phones watching shows so i had to hear annoying entail mentioned selections. I had ear plugs fortunately :) didn't find anything I'd watch in entertainment. enjoy learning/science/documentaries"
Pros: "The attendants tried to be cheerful in a difficult situation."
Cons: "Once we were boarded we waited for a long time in a crowded stifling hot plane. Requests to the crew were met with helplessness on their part!"
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"
Pros: "Really fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The flight was really bumpy which I realize isn't anyone's fault but I couldn't wait till we landed...also they announced that as soon as we were at a certain altitude they would begin beverage service....which I was really looking forward too , and then ten minutes later they announced that they were cancelling beverage service."
Pros: "We arrived on time and I had no problems ."
Cons: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned."
Cons: "nothing to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "It was on time and I had no problems whatsoever."
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Pros: "The crew was polite and courteous. Aircraft was clean. The flight even landed way ahead of schedule. Overall a great return flight"
Cons: "The food seemed overpriced for what it was. I passed as it didn't look very appealing."
Pros: "Only good thing was the flight was fast and on flight staff friendly."
Cons: "Flight to Denver was supposed to leave from Albuquerque at 9:55. Screen said flight was on time. No rep at desk and screen changes to Houston and only way we found out our flight was delayed because the plane was diverted to Durango is because another passenger called United. Finally at a quarter till 11am the screen at the gate changed back to Denver but still said 9:55am departure flight on time but united's website stated flight delayed till 11:55am. Upon return to Albuquerque from Denver bag was not on my flight so I had to hang out in Albuquerque although, I live an hour away because I have prescription meds in my checked bag I need to take 4 times daily. Would not fly United again"
Pros: "Again, great staff at the gate and crew aboard. Short flight but very comfortable."
Cons: "It was freezing!"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and kept us up to date."
Cons: "I did not like that both planes they put us on were broken. We were very delayed"
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Pros: "On time both ways"
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight and the departure and arrival times were just perfect. I really liked the cookies they had. If I had wanted to use it, there was WiFi available."
Cons: "We took off late due to mechanical problems and I think the practice of allowing first class passengers to board first and then get in the way of other people trying to board later is inefficient."
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Cancellation policy is just abusive !!"
Pros: "The flight was safe, the crew courteous. Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
Cons: "Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
Pros: "Okay crew."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seating. Departure time and gate changes."
Cons: "When traveling with a service animal, it's kind of a given that I would be seated where there would be room for my dog. My dog is 70 pounds. There was no room for him to sit in front of me. The flight attendant just says "he can't sit in the isle". I asked her where would you like him to go? She says "not in the isle". A 2nd attendant was able to move me to a front row where there was space for him to sit on the floor in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the food was good and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable, and the WiFi was expensive. Plus, when I got to my destination, my suitcase has been damaged and a few items were missing."
Cons: "Is a seatback tv too much to ask for?"
Pros: "No problem flight"
Cons: "Announcements from cockpit inaudible"
Pros: "Left and got into destination early"
