Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The flight and crew were very good. An hour late taking off with not explanation. Frustrating on an hour flight."

Pros: "Service of staff"
Cons: "Lost my baggage and all of my flights where late causing me to miss one of my connections"
Cons: "Half hr late"
Pros: "Very confusing. United personnel running Air Canada ground operations. Took 30 plus minutes to check one bag because there were not enough staff checking passengers in. Then flight was supposed to be delayed 90 minutes. This meant missing connections so automatic rebooking took place. Flight was then not delayed and had to rebook on original flight. Naturally bag didn't make the trip."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled. Rebooked for two days later, causing us to miss our cruise to Alaska! Never again with Air Canada.So disappointed in missing this trip we had planned for a long time."
Cons: "No help in getting us to our cruise on time."
Pros: "We did not make it to this flight since it was cancelled"
Cons: "We were rebooked on a flight with a short connection to London and they bumped us off that flight claiming that they could not get our bags in on time. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "Nothing - I didn't end up going to Toronto."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and I was forced to take a different flight. Ruined my plans in Edmonton that day. Last time I use air Canada."
Cons: "Did not reimburse new arrangements. Missed connection due to flight delays on Air Canada's behalf."
Cons: "I was on AC A333 from YYZ to MUC. The audio system for my seat didn't work and made for a long flight. Lucky I had downloaded some movies from Nextflix to my mobile device. The only thing I was able to use is the flight tracker on my seat screen."
Cons: "I had to delay my whole trip one day as the fight was late by 5 hours. I had made specific plans to reach delhi on April 21. Since I am a physician, it wasn't easy to arrange coverage so I could make it to delhi for a particular event. And this delay in flight was a major disappointment and made all the effort futile."
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: "Very friendly service, good food, good entertainment selection, comfortable seats and ample room for carry-on luggage"
Cons: "My headphone jack didn't work so it was hard to use the entertainment system as I had to hold the headphones in the right position for the entire flight - not a huge deal of course just inconvenient. My flight was also delayed and I could not make my connection..I understand delays happen but I don't understand why there was such little time between my first flight and my connection...seems silly. Luckily I was put on the next flight which I am very appreciative of."
