Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Pros: "Quick boarding and takeoff"
Cons: "The sound connections for the in flight entertainment was faulty. Bring your own device would be better. Seats were uncomfortable, they need replacing."
Pros: "Our flight attendant on this flight was really great. He was so friendly and upbeat."
Cons: "Our plane for this flight made an unexpected stop in Detroit and we were told that they did not know "if the plane would be leaving Detroit or if another plane could be found for us". We honestly thought the flight would end up being cancelled and we would have to find somewhere to stay that night. They ended up finding another plane an hour and a half later and our gate was changed four times during our wait."
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: "Great attitude of the crew & staff! Similar feel to SW personable ,professional people."
Cons: "Thrifty Canucks are cheap on the snacks, both size & quality, but then it's a two-hour-nap-flight so no big deal"
Cons: "4 hours delay to YYZ from MSP, 2 hours delayed to MSP from YYZ."
Pros: "Left 30 minutes late but made up time and arrived roughly 5 minutes off original time. Ample leg room in coach. Nobody in the seats in front. Crew pleasant. Quiet ride."
Cons: "People behind coughing/sneezing all the way."
Pros: "Lowest fare"
Cons: "Online checkin failed, airport kiosk couldn't handle how names are written on Japanese passports (it's English) and had to wait 2 hours on the line to check in because they were down to 1 agent toward the end. Made it to the gate just as boarding started. Very limited entertainment options for modern day airlines. Uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "No surprises."
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."
Pros: "Boarding was a smooth and easy process and crew was pleasant."
Cons: "I'm only 5'2" rouge is advertised as comfort and the seats felt slightly cramped. Not sure how someone taller could be comfortable."
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..."
Pros: "Friendly folks"
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then cancelled, and there wasn't even bad weather at either airport. I still don't know why the flight was cancelled. My alternate flight had to be from a different airport and that flight was also delayed. I went from a non-stop flight to a flight with a layover... a 7 hour layover. Was not fun sleeping at the airport. On top of that, I had paid to select my seat and it wasn't honored on the flight back. Somehow I was unassigned because of the flight change during departure but I was still charged."
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"
Cons: "We were crammed in with no room to move. no way to get comfortable. Seats not comfortable. Very tight space and not pleasant."
Pros: "We made it to Vancouver"
Cons: "Aircraft was late. At least two gate changes in LA. Flight crew did not take away trash, just told us to stick in seat pockets. Entertainment system was down much of flight."
Cons: "I flew from YEG -YYZ and the flight was delayed. It's a good thing that the 2nd flight was delayed or else I would have missed it and no AC employee was interested in helping me make my connection. There were several people on the flight that had connections and were trying to rush off the plane."
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)."
Cons: "cost of luggage fees. You collect excessive fees for luggage and when you loose the luggage or it arrives on a later flight you should refund the fee. I was on a hunting trip and my firearm didn't come in on my flight necessitating my rebooking a later flight. You didn't mind collecting an extra $100 to handle the gun case but you didn't deliver on your end. I will never fly to Canada again on Air Canada."
Pros: "Lufthansa was amazing food, entertainment, condition of plane, service, etc... Compared to Air Canada! We had a Aur Canada ticket but it was Lufthansa operated. However, Lufthansa comfort not as good as we were cramped in small seats and couldn't see out on the long daytime flight because the window passenger closed all the windows (it was like being cramped in a cardboard box for ten plus hours... Thank heavens for the great drinks, food, water, and entertainment."
Cons: "Small seats. Window shades down all day on a daytime flight."
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."
Cons: "I literally walked for 40 minutes across YYJ to make this connection. Security was a breeze, the airport was empty late at night, it was all smooth sailing. This is not a whine about hardship - I was just continuously astonished that I'm still walking! It was amazing! The slightest delay on your incoming flight and you're sunk with that much travel time in between... In this day and age...basically making a US to CA domestic connection is better done through another airport. -Cheers!"
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: "Same plane as the one I flew on the way to Toronto. It's a really nice plane."
Cons: "Canada Airlines lost my luggage and I still don't have it."
Cons: "The flight attendants were overwhelmingly rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "Good Crew The crew was sharp, efficient, attentive and very good."
Cons: "Better Food Needed Even though this was a short flight, the meal could have been better. The small amount of smoked salmon was inadequate. This meal has been served over and over. Increasing the amount of smoked salmon would at least be a step in the right direction."
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: "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: "I liked nothing, the flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours and was notified when I arrived 2 hrs before flight . The Airlines were not helpful at all. Then when I got to my seat on this late 3 1/2 hour delay my seat was broken and uncomfortable for the rest of the flight which was three hours."
Cons: "Did not enjoy the flight or your flight attendants They were rude and did not satisfy me as a customer at all Would not recommend Air Canada rouge to anyone and will avoid booking with Air Canada again"
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: "Direct flight from Toronto to Budapest was awesome"
Cons: "There was no air vent, poor movie entertainment selection and no free alcohol for transatlantic flight"
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: "Toronto is a lovely airport, and it's a short hop to Europe from there, which is why Air Canada Rouge is ok for the trip. It's important to remember that their no frills approach means no TVs. Sleep or plan accordingly."
Pros: "The service was friendly, eventhough I was forced to check in my carry on."
Cons: "I checked in 5hrs early to find out that I had to check in my carry on. To my disappointment, as I finally boarded, I noticed that LOTS of people had carry ons that were either the same size or larger. As we landed, the passenger next to asked me to help take her carry on down from the top storage area (as it was extremely heavy). Her bag could've been 50lbs! The plane was over burdened with people's carry ons. What disappoints me the most is that I checked in early, but my carry on did not make it aboard the plane while other people's carry on did!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The connectors for the headphones were not working properly for several seats."
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"
Cons: "They did not let my mom board the flight because she didn't know she was supposed to get a transit visa just for passing through Canada. Since, other countries don't do that shouldn't they warn it when somebody is buying a ticket. The ticket was bought online and the questionnaire clearly asked nationality!"
Pros: "Crew was super nice."
Cons: "Bathroom was horrible and smelled very bad. Flight was delayed and delayed."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "Smooth landing!"
Cons: "Late 30”"
Cons: "Delayed from another flight but this crew tried their best to get us up in the air"
Pros: "Respect and support"
Pros: "Still made it home on schedule."
Cons: "Delays. Original schedule from SFO to MSP was changed without alternatives."
Pros: "I appreciated that the airline put us up in a hotel, gave us vouchers for food and bumped us to first class, however not all of us even got on this plane. My wife is on standby while my daughter and her friend go with me at 6:20 AM, my work de is scheduled for 7:45 flight. We’ll see but I’m not holding my breath."
Cons: "See above..."
Pros: "Standard beverage and small snack service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a half hour. No one announced anything about the delay until we were almost leaving. It would have been nice to at least share what was happening and when we could expect to leave. Delays are always frustrating but especially so late at night and when no information is given."
Pros: "Our family was able to sit together"
Cons: "The flight left late It arrived late and we sat out away from the gate for 15-20 minutes before getting up to the gate to deplane."
Pros: "Standard, quick domestic flight home. Nothing special."
Cons: "The flight was late, which I realize isn't any one person's fault, but it was annoying. We were actually taxiing almost as long as we were in the air! The part that was really frustrating was that my infant's car seat was damaged, but United refused to acknowledge that they did it because it hadn't been something severe like being run over by a forklift. The good news is that I now know to avoid flying United."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Pros: "Was clean and nice"
Cons: "Everything was good"
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: "Everything went well, landed early, crew were helpful. Could ask for better."
Cons: "Nothing to say here."
Pros: "The plane did not crash. That was the part I liked."
Cons: "No one cares what coach customers think of "their in-flight experience" so im not sure why I'm bothering. I got a cheap ticket and packed a tiny backpack. Was reminded of my lowly state by being made to wait till the last second to board. Last row of plane. 2 inches of leg room. Leave it to United to figure out a way to create a class of customer so low that you envy all the other cattle. MOOOOO!"
Pros: "2 flights today. Both delayed. Both with no free entertainment or any attempt to make up for the horrible problems. Service was non existent on the first and limited on the second."
Cons: "There is very little to like about united. Instead of taking the opportunity to offer some free comps to the passengers on either flight for the delays they just brushed it off as business as usual. Poor choice when a little hospitality goes a long way."
Pros: "Their waffle cookie is the best 'freebie' in the air. I also liked the access to the wifi for entertainment on my own device."
Pros: "I got some unexpected exercise running to three different gates that turned out to be wrong yet UAL sent the entire plane to each gate only to send us back to the initial gate."
Cons: "Apparent lack of planning and coordination on part of UAL when confronted with mechanical problem in initial plane."
Pros: "Didn't crash"
Cons: "Booked two seats at same time and they weren't by one another. Plane was not full so asked ticket counter if they find two seats together but did not want last row because seats don't recline. Clerk said those were only seats together so she she said she'd move us to exit row (still separate middle seats). However, seats were not actually exit row and they did not recline. So we simply got moved to separate middle seats in a different, a row that didn't recline."
Pros: "I survived."
Cons: "Just before takeoff we had to abort and the crew slammed on the brakes. It was entirely frightening. We sat on the runway for a long time after that while the crew did not have clear answers for what was happening or why. Several things happened while we were on that plane that were unnerving for the passengers. So much so that at least one passenger threw up. Very scary. We did end up taking that plane on to our destination two hours later, but it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Pros: "Email alerts, day before check in, efficient and friendly boarding experience."
Cons: "Tight seating, sat next to bathrooms."
Pros: "Never took it"
Cons: "Never took this flight"
Cons: "It was a 3 hr. flight. They gave us no food, just a small bag a snack mix. I asked for tomato juice to drink and I asked if I could keep the can and the flight attendant said NO, because someone else may want tomato juice. UNITED is out on my list of airlines,"
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "We were not seated together and had to pay 84 dollars to get preferred seating together and this was booked 2 mos ago???"
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Rock hard seats"
Pros: "I had long waiting time for my flight from ORD and asked at stall if i can get early flight and the person at desk checked the system and get me early flight with no charge in cooperative and helpful manner with smiley gesture ."
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: "The crew was very considerate and nice to all passengers."
Cons: "It took forever to board and people had to move because the plane was unbalanced. That shouldn't happen in 2016."
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."
Pros: "The Crew. Honestly I hope United doesn't mess up the one thing going for them."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, beautiful safe take offs and landings"
Cons: "Worst seat cushion I have ever had. EvER. Behind and back are so sore .......even with the short flight. You can do better here...."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the in cabin experience went smoothly."
Cons: "It took over half an hour, for the plane to depart from the runway. In addition, the gate was changed three times without overhead announcements from O'Hare."
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."
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 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: "That the plane actually took off and landed fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours. I booked this flight on this airline as my previous flight on a different airline was delayed over 7 hours."
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."
Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Newer plane. Very nice staff"
Cons: "Floor around seat was dirty. Lot of exaggerated braking. Suggested a new pilot perhaps?"
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"
