Pros: "Paid extra for more legroom"
Cons: "No Free WiFi"

Pros: "The dinner was decent"

Cons: "Bosrdunf staff at DCA. No communication in crowded area"

Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."

Cons: "Beyond pritzzels pls have other snack varieties"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"

Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "I did not like that the airline would not give a seat on an earlier flight so that I would not have to spend so many hours in the Chicago O'Hare airport. I did not like that the airport only allowed me thirty minutes of access to the internet. As a result, I could not work while I had to wait for my flight. Finally, I did not like that the airline lost or delayed my bag."

Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed with another 1 hour delay on the tarmac"

Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."

Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."

Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"
Cons: "NO seats available on booking, without paying extra. Never could sit together, even though booked together. Greedy but stupid."

Pros: "The price is competitive. On boarding was ontime. Though the flight was redirected to Omaha due to bad weather in Kansas City, it was only an hour late than the scheduled arrival to Kansas City."
Cons: "The WiFi was not as expected. In flight entertainment is null. Snack would have been better."

Pros: "Nice plane when we finally boarded it. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Endless advisories, the official explanation of the flight delay and estimated departure was constantly in flux."

Pros: "very good no problems.."
Cons: "all good thanks much"

Pros: "Flight was delayed but boarding at DCA was very efficient and quick"

Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Spacing is really tight"

Pros: "Customer service won't answer the phone"
Cons: "Customer service could answer the phone"

Pros: "The customer service phone number was impossible to get through on in order to take to someone within 24 hours of my flight in order to make my Special Meals request as I have Celiac's Disease. I was unable to make this selection at booking as when you book through a third party like Expedia, which I did, you cannot access the same internal tools required to make that selection. You can ONLY then call once you have checked in before the flight in order to let the airline know of your Special Meal needs. This is not only a terrible policy as it undercuts those who ARE ultimately still buying tickets to their airline, and that the airline is CHOOSING to sell. It provided me with an extremely subpar experience of the airline but left up to the last minute with doubts about my ability to board a 13 he international flight without the reassurance that I would have ANY meals aboard and no other options should that be the case. Right before my flight departed I was reassured that the information we had requested Expedia relay to the airline internally the day before, who we called when we couldn't get through to the airline, WAS able to convey this Special Meal request and I was going to have food on the flight, so I then did not purchase a bunch of snacks in the airport to have as options. The first meal in, no Special Meal was provided and I had to explain then entire situation all over again. They assured me they would figure it out and get me taken care of. However, no one who assisted me conveyed this to anyone else on the flight and every time food was dispersed, same situation. This was stressful and exhausting and the options provided me were modified to be gluten free, such as an entire plate of fruit for my snack, instead of the protein heavy snack everyone else received, because there truly wasn't extra for that type of dietary restriction. This was stressful and I was very hungry on the flight. One of the attendants got me a few chunks of cheese from first class, but otherwise, it wasn't great. I would advise travelers with Special Meal requests NOT to fly with AirCanada."

Cons: "if the Monitor would work and not 1 hr late"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."

Pros: "only The crew inside the airplane and the airoplane"
Cons: "Every one in Lufthansa are so rude expect the crew"

Pros: "Quick and easy"

Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."

Pros: "on time, easy to board"
Cons: "no snacks at all . would appreciate some peanuts with my drink or something."

Cons: "Very cold plane"

Pros: "Flight Attendants"
Cons: "Rouge shouldn't exist. Expected to use your own devices on 9 hour flight without power source ! My battery can't last. Since when is Canada to US not an international flight? 8.5 hours without anything but water ? No a peanut? Very uncomfortable seats and super tight! Super disappointing and will never fly AC again"

Cons: "No one told us the only inflight entertainment option was streaming via their app, until we were seated on the aircraft with no access to wifi."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive, always offering water and anything else we needed. The captain was very good about warning us about turbulence. Boarding the plane was quick and efficient."
Cons: "I felt the aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly. It's disheartening when your seat/area isn't clean and you're stuck there for 13 hours."

Pros: "There was nothing outstanding on this flight."
Cons: "We were delayed on boarding, they changed the gate number a number of times... it was all very disorganized. Both flights to and from LAX were delayed hours so they had to give us a voucher for 15% off our next flight."

Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"

Cons: "Big delay, causing me to miss my connecting flight."

Cons: "We were told our flight was delayed due to weather, and then due to mechanics. The weather was fine in both new york and toronto those days, and other toronto flights left on time. we ended up being delayed 6 hours in the airport, and other flights still went out ahead of us. furthermore, because our flight was delayed, they didn't seem to prepare for the new departure time, and we were held up for almost an hour on the runway before being able to take off, and almost 30 minutes on the runway once we landed too. better planning and customer service needs to be required in these situations."

Pros: "Good legroom and entertainment options, on time. Enjoyable overall."
Cons: "Food showed British heritage -- stodgy, boring, overcooked. The bathrooms were dirty and out of supplies after a while."

Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."

Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."

Pros: "The flight attendant helped me find my gate which wad nice seeing I didn't have a long layover."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, flight was delayed, in the back row so couldn't recline seat, sat right next to bathroom, and the only attendant was busy all it took a long time to get her attention."

Pros: "Flight timings were perfect for my schedule. Boarding and departure were timely as well."

Pros: "I liked the overall experience of flying with air canada this was my first time using air canada before this I used westjet a lot a friend of my suggested air canada so I gave it a try and happy to have doNE it"
Cons: "The only issue that I have is the fact of the charge for the charge of the suitcase and the carryon as so much that when we get to the plane there is not enough room for all of the carryons"

Cons: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."

Cons: "We did not make this flight due to the first flight being over an hour late. This caused us to miss our connection to St. Louis. While they rerouted others on the flight, they did not reroute us because we didn't check any luggage! Their reasoning was we had a chance to make the connection. But they made us wait in a line for 10 minutes to be told that despite our requests to go to the gate. By then it was too late. We then had to fly stand by to Chicago and stand by again to get to St. Louis."

Pros: "Flight was ok, the aircraft was in excellent condition. The food was also very good."
Cons: "The flight information stated that the flight was a Lufthansa flight when it was actually an Air Canada flight. That caused some confusion and possible delays at the Madrid airport."

Pros: "Boarding and crew were very good."
Cons: "Air Canada Legs were excellent, but Rouge Sucks!"

Cons: "Actually I flew from Buenos Aires to Vancouver on Air Canada. I had paid to prebook my seats both on the B.A.-Torononto leg and also Toronto to Vancouver. Did not get either of the seats I had paid and prebooked. Therefore Air Canada is taking money but not providing the service or product...... technically this is stealing"

Cons: "The last leg of our entire trip, and it was late. We left about 1.5 hours late and they had trouble getting the gate to the plane when we landed. A long trip home was made even longer. I was very surprised that there were so many issues with timeliness on AC flights. In our outbound to Athens, two of the three flights left late, and they had to rebook part of our trip to accommodate. And the return trip was more of the same. I expected AC to be world-class and it was more like a regional airline in terms of performance."

Cons: "Didn't like not having a screen on the back of the seat in front of me, that I would have to pay $10 to rent an ipad."

Cons: "It's hard to believe, but Air Canada did not offer wifi on our international - 9 hour - flight. I had intended to work and my daughter intended to do her homework and entertain herself online. They may have advertised no wifi, but I missed it. Additionally, our outbound and inbound planes were grounded for more than 30 minutes due to mechanical issues. It might be time for Air Canada to upgrade its international fleet!"

Pros: "The flight was great, friendly staff, great food, new plane, lots of options on the new AC entertainment system. The new Star Alliance terminal (T2) at Heathrow is also so fast and efficient! No complaints at all!!!"

Pros: "Airline attendants were fantastic. Boarding was efficient. I never tried the food so I can't attest to that."
Cons: "Space was so cramped it was crazy - I had a prior Air Canada flight experience that was very comfortable, but if I was 6" taller in this flight I would have been pissed."

Pros: "There are a variety of entertainments section."
Cons: "During transfering from air canada to delta an employee failed to transfer all my baggage. As a result I couldn't get one of my baggage yet. Moreover there was no reservation made for me and I missed the flight since I lost the time by going back and forth to Delta and Air Canada offices to fix the problem. As a result I spent the night at Detroit and take the next day flight."

Pros: "Breakfast and lunch filling and tasty with good options. Attendants came around often."
Cons: "Multiple glitches in flight- Some entertainment systems did not work, so the pilot had to do a reboot of whole system for 20 minutes. One overhead compartment would not close, had to divert bags somewhere else. Planes need a major upgrade to entertainment equipment. view screens are 20 years old, the touch screens don't work on the first try because its such old underpowered tech. Safety demonstration props missing."

Cons: "Overall it was terrible. Really bad customer services. I never want to take Air Canada airplanes in my life."

Cons: "Poor"

Cons: "Flight attendant was awful My seat assignment was the same seat designated to crew and my flight attendant treated badly inspite of the error"

Pros: "Nothing to like about this airline. Horrible people especially in toronto, really unhelpful, extremely rude."
Cons: "Air line decided they didn't want me to take my connecting flight. Removed my luggage without consulting with me. Offered me a disgusting hotel. Forced me to pay out of pocket for food, taxis, transfers and my own hotel choice. Staff were so rude. No explanation to why they removed my bags. I made it in plenty of time for my connecting flight but airline had just decided. No staff member was interested in answering my questions or helping. They all just wanted to sod off home. they just didn't care."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Everyone was pleasant and respectful."

Cons: "Long line and not much organization during boarding"

Pros: "Movie selection Crew was kind"
Cons: "Check in was over 45 min Space between seats: I'm 6" 3" and leg space was a problem Food was mediocre"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything was basically on time."
Cons: "Air canada should still give snacks like west jet."

Pros: "I liked flying in a small plane; with few people aboard; very uncomplicated."
Cons: "Bathroom on the plane was very small; although clean there was a bad odor, not sure it was from a previous occupant, the water or something, but it was most unpleasant."

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."

Cons: "Ontime and the flight was comfortable."

Pros: "Nothing to expect more"
Cons: "The amount of snacks served should be increased"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable seating. Blanket better than recent trip with another carrier. All entertainment equipment functioned; entertainment choices adequate but not outstanding. Food was tasty for airline food. Staff was kind and professional While not overly friendly."
Cons: "Slice of banana bread for light continental breakfast sure was light. Last food I received for hours because of my schedule. Crew communicated and updated us well. Required documentation was not explained at all. Many passengers were confused."

Cons: "It was very cold!"

Pros: "There is nothing I liked about air Canada"
Cons: "Everything sucks"
