Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "such a big difference in size of aircraft, very comfortable and great crew."
Pros: "Everything was easy"
Cons: "Business class seats are snug for big people compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Great crew. Very kind and efficient."
Cons: "American carriers seem to enjoy poor seat ergonomics."
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time and crew helped the boarding process go smoothly. It was nice to get a beer or wine at no additional cost."
Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."
Pros: "Comfortable seat. Great crew!"
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Cons: "There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered."
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "Comfort, service food and entertainment. What more can you ask for."
Cons: "Nothing. ]"
Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."
Pros: "Everything (with the exception of the subject below), thank you. One thing that really surprised me, though, is how much I liked the eggs (on both flights) and what went with the eggs, like the spinach and potatoes and bacon on this flight and the potatoes and sausage (and was there something else?) on the next flight. Kudos for making something that has got to be cheap taste good. Thanks."
Cons: "Come to think of it, there was one thing that I didn't particularly like, and that was how the headphones only worked on one side only (there was only audio on one side). At first I thought that maybe I had just gotten bad headphones, but the my next flight was the same: the headphones also only played audio on one side."
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"
Pros: "The crew was professional, responsive and friendly."
Cons: "The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws"
Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Pros: "Plane was about 30% full so plenty of room to stretch out. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight left 50 minutes late because they'd lost the paperwork and had to get new copies.... not very professional! I can understand a delay due to weather or technical issues but losing paperwork shouldn't happen. The food portion was very small for an international flight."
Pros: "Talk about an awesome experience. I loved the friendly staff and the accommodations were superb. I could ask for no better. Even the food was excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing but praise."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled on Christmas Day, but we had to stand in line to wait to get onto another flight on another airline. They were so slow that the flight they tried to put everyone left and then they offered ZERO assistance to get another flight and wouldn’t even refund my ticket, just told me after waiting 3 hours to call whoever I booked with for a refund."
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Pros: "Boarding, flight and crew all great. Having the connecting security pass in the airport which is a lot less busy than the main area. Good info given for connection."
Cons: "Food (main meal) wasnt the best but great snacks and drinks. Having to check in again in gatwick even though jad boarding passes."
Cons: "After 14 hours the seats were like sitting on spikes"
Pros: "Leg room in economy was good. Staff very professional and made a long flight bearable."
Cons: "At check in the name on my reservation read Ron, not Ronald which is on my passport. The second agent I was referred to was unpleasant and charging $100. Had same problem out of Seoul but there was no charge for the ticket change. My interaction with the second agent left a very bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "Good notification re a 30 Minute delay. Obtaining board passes was a breeze and love where I can save the passes to my wallet on my mobile device. Flight crews were helpful, cheerful and professional."
Cons: "With seats being so tight causing an issue when getting in and out of seats."
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "The Business - was The Business! Loved it."
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."
Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."
Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"
Pros: "Safe flight, good crew"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did a great job."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight."
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"
Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("
Pros: "Great service outstanding staff"
Cons: "Entertainment package needs to better emirates and qatar could be taken as examoles Delay un take iff 3 times now in last 12 months"
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
Cons: "Watch out for checked baggage fees on short haul international flights. If you buy their saver fare, VA charges you $130 to check a bag at the check-in counter. Highway robbery in my opinion! Make sure you add a bag beforehand. Corporate greed at its worst."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"
Pros: "Professional Cabin Crew Excellent "vera" entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedure in Cancun airport, although I accept that this is more of an issue with airport layout Removal of some of the "Virgin Atlantic" benefits such as free sports equipment will make me rethink my carrier of choice from next year. The 747 fleet is starting to feel old - when are the dream liners coming?"
Pros: "I liked entertainment options on your phone but at the same time there was nowhere to plug your phone if it ran out of battery."
Cons: "The boarding was good but we did not depart o time which did not cause us to be on time to our destination. It was international flight for almost 4 hours and there was no foodie snacks serve. Only tea or coffee. For a international flight more than 2 hours you should offer something else, soda juices and a snack at the very least. I guess the reason why I am feeling this ways is because I flew with virgin a couple years back to London and was so impressed by he service and the airline and the great quality modern vibe. It was the W hotels of the airlines industry and this time I really want impressed."
Never took the flight. I booked this back in November because I needed to make a connection in Calgary. Air Canada canceled my flight unilaterally and never provided a better alternative that could fit my schedule. I would never flight Air Canada based on that experience.
No hay nada de comer incluido ni una galleta
It was very bad experience, this is was my first time experience and will be last one, all flights going and coming to USA, were late, one of my luggage didn’t arrive yet, the counter disk services were not helpful and …,, more other reasons
A very convenient, direct flight with no issues and comfy seats.
Pros: "Boarding/ticketing/getting off the plane was all super efficient and quick. All the staff was super friendly and helpful. Made traveling so easy and stress-free."
Pros: "There was one crew member was passive aggresive and doing his best to annoy the whole trip, I had to get other crew involved, he was hitting on my friend as well....."
Cons: "This was a United flight sold as Air Canada to me and Lufthansa to my friend. This made check in twice as long since we went to the wrong counters. The quality was horrendous for an international flight and the entertainment system was broken. I paid atleast 50% more than I should have. Never fly UA"
Pros: "lots of leg room and entertainment program has lots more choices to choose."
Pros: "I liked the food"
Cons: "Crew could have been more available. Once we took off, rarely to be seen."
Cons: "Main meal was the worst I have had in over 10 years on a plane. I got the pasta. There were no vegetables or color other than yellow/orange in the dish. The side was a potato salad, which is also not very nutritious. Then you get a brownie and a roll. The breakfast/snack was also a pumpkin slice of bread. The overall food options were not very diverse in terms of the food groups. I thought plane food had improved in the last decade or so, but not on this flight."
Pros: "Quick and organized airport and boarding"
Cons: "Old plane uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Food was OK, entertainment good"
Cons: "Paid almost $500 to upgrade to Premium economy - electronic window shades were not functional and was sitting on the South side getting full sun for all the flight. Eventually tore out pages from magazine and stuck them in the window to get some shade. This is the second Air Canada flight in 2 months with electrical issues that I have experienced."
Pros: "Worst seats of any airline"
Cons: "Worst seats of any airline"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hrs! Crew not particularly great."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours so I missed my connection. Flight attendants not kind. Could not sleep due to flight attendants chatter standing next to my seat."
Pros: "Good flight, great crew members. Seats were comfortable and there were good entertainment options."
Pros: "I liked the crew on the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process. There were parents with children who were not seated because of their group numbers. Why not board parents with children first, regardless of boarding group?? Especially those of us who were traveling with babies/toddlers. Air Canada can do better. Disappointed."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean plane."
Cons: "One of the crew members seemed a bit out of sorts, didn't smile much and was curt with another passenger when she was asked to take his garbage."
Pros: "Flight was fine. Staff was fine. No complaints."
Cons: "Although the food was abundant and tasted good, it was rather heavy. Lots of starch (and chocolate!). That kind of food may be fun and satisfying, but it's not really the best thing for middle-aged adults who are sitting on an airplane for 10 hours! If you can work in more fruits and veggies or light desserts, that would be great! Regarding entertainment: We could not connect to the entertainment system, so we watched a DVD that we brought along with us."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "nice lie flat beds."
Cons: "it was all good."
Pros: "Very nice crew and a quick flight to the states."
Cons: "The seating area in the gates was extremely crowded as passengers waiting to board. This is definitely the worst part of the Toronto airport. This section could offer more space, more seating, and more food and beverage options."
Pros: "Very friendly staff at airport. Saw we were flying with children and were able to put us on stand by to fly sooner."
Pros: "It got me where I needed to be."
Cons: "Temperature was very cold at times."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight left really late, which meant that we had to rush to the next terminal when we arrived in Chicago for the transfer flight."
Pros: "Very accommodating with the seating, flights on time"
Cons: "Due to maintenance, the flight was cancelled."
Pros: "-Direct flight -The boarding by sections. Less of a stampede."
Cons: "When I arrived to my seat, the overhead compartment was full. I had no room for my carry-on. I mentioned it to the flight attendant. He just shrugged and told me to put my carry-on under the seat in front of me. So, #1, I guess some people bring more carry-on and the staff lets them. And #2, I guess it wasn't tight enough in those seats and even though I'm over 6 ft, the staff had to make it tighter. Also, when it was time to land, I thought my seat was all the way up. It was not fully all the way up. I was half asleep, and all of sudden, instead of telling me, one of the flight attendant pushed on the button to raise my seat. I would've appreciated him telling me. The landing was delayed, but that's no ones fault at rouge. I am trying to be as objective as I can. Hopefully, when (and if) someone at Air Canada-Rouge reads this, he or she has enough "pull" at the company to ask the proper authorities:"what kind of company are we? Are we a bargain basement flight company that offers just basic flights for extremely low prices? Or are we an average flight company that offer great value for the money the customer pays?" Because, from my perspective as a customer who is at his second experience with Air Canada-Rouge, the feeling that I get from flying with you guys, is that your company offers basic flights that doesn't offer great value for the money. It's more a company that "plays on both fields", taking what suits them, and leaving what doesn't , regardless of their customer. I understand that a company has to make money. It's normal. But, at a certain point, don't you have to think about your customers? To be honest, the only reason I flew with Air Canada-Rouge is that I was stuck with no other choices but to fly with you (schedule, cost, etc.) And I know for a fact that I'm not the only one. The feeling that I get, is that your company counts on customer like me. Customers that are "stuck", with no other alternatives. If your company wants to offer many "cheap direct flights" like Ryanair and Easyjet offer in Europe, I have 2 suggestions: #1: lower your prices. #2 :your staff should be more customer friendly savvy. Because those 2 companies, that's what they offer. Always remember: you can put a lot of maple syrup on a pile of sh***t, it still won't taste like pancakes. Thank you."
Pros: "luggage intact and well kept"
Cons: "No good refreshment on flight"
Pros: "I liked waiting to fly until weather was good."
Cons: "I disliked the long delay, no time for the drink cart."
Cons: "Flight departing Toronto to Amsterdam was cancelled without adequate compensation. Flight was supposed to depart at 8:45. Was delayed repeatedly then cancelled at 11pm. Air canada wasn't able to get us a hotel voucher until 1:45 am and hotel check in at 2 am. Complete disruption of travel plans. Customer service at Toronto airport was terrible."
Pros: "Like? Not really."
Cons: "I asked a flight attendant for help to put my hand luggage over head, but she advised me me next time to bring lighter bag and walked away!!! Nice! The bag was 4,5 kg! A gentleman from next seat kindly helped me without asking."
Pros: "The staff were apologetic and understanding. Everyone felt bad for the staff because they had nothing to do with the nightmare."
Cons: "Not only that I missed my connecting flight, when I was actually able to board 24 hours later the boarding experience was a complete nightmare with long lines and completely disorganized boarding system. I am curious to see whether I will get compensated for the missed hotel accommodations in Amsterdam. Keeping my fingers crossed. All to say, my last trip with Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours."
Pros: "Food was really good and they passed drinks a few times as well as walking through with water. Staff was friendly"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. The cabin was very comfortable to fly in although the headrests were unnecessary since a small pillow was provided. Thank you for the pillow and blanket - that made the night flight much more comfortable. The crew were all professional and friendly. I appreciated how quickly we boarded and exited the plane. The staff made this very quick and efficient."
Cons: "Every time the male attendant walked by he brushed his hand along the overhead luggage compartment. This woke me up from my sleep over a dozen times. It was fine once or twice but became very annoying. The zones at the gate were very crowded and too close together. They were also right beside the food vendors and made it nearly impossible for other people in the terminal to easily walk by. The seating area was overcrowded and had more seating with computer hookups than without. It was also not kept tidy. Compared to other airports this was by far the most disorganized and least clean."
Cons: "I bought the tickets two months in advance, but they put us on standby list when we got to the airport. They over sold. I couldn't believe that. We were told that we should have paid to choose our seats!!!"
Pros: "Everything was okay to good, industry standard these days flying from Northern America."
Cons: "Banana bread for breakfast?"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. The in flight movies are good."
Cons: "Boarding was a little hectic and unorganized. And although my luggage made it to my second flight, my friends luggage was left in Toronto. Now we are in Amsterdam and she has no clothes. My head phone jack was also broken and could barely be used."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants and ground crew. Made the experience easy."
Cons: "Leg room on Air Canada Rouge flight was less than I expected."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, and the flight procedures were very efficient."
Cons: "I have no criticisms to offer."
Pros: "I got a larger than normal seat,"
Cons: "The idiots lost my luggage, and it took two full days and about 20 phone calls to get it back."
Pros: "Although I had to walk quite a way to get to my seat, once I got there, I had a very comfortable and enjoyable flight. The food was good, the bathrooms were close and easy to get to, the crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I wish there were more wholesome movies or audio books to choose from."
Pros: "A clerk of ANA was awesome."
Cons: "The flight to Tokyo was changed at the airport because Air Canada had overbooked and the seats were fully checked-in. So I could not get on my booking flight and had to wait for them to arrange new flight from another air company, to check in it and board for more than 5 hours in the airport!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and nice. I saw some passenger asked a sort of unreasonable request (she wanted to switch chicken to beef after she already had several bites), but our flight attendant dealt with her very well."
Cons: "Air Canada: We didn't have a TV screen. We are suggested to use our cell or tablet to use apps. but I only had cell phone. Selection of movie is so poor. I wanted to watch Japanese movies, as I always catch Japanese movie on the way to there, but the selection of movies was mainly kids movie and not targeted to adults."
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: "Flight attendants were great, very nice, professional, accommodating. I woke up in the middle of the night and they politely gave me a glass of water, good food and drink service. I was so tired, I chose not to eat the dinner, so I can't speak to that, but the breakfast was juice, coffee and a slice of banana bread which was very good. Pilot was great, easy flight, easy landing. No complaints!"
Pros: "Not much. This first experience with Air Canada left me thinking it must be a severe-discount carrier."
Cons: "By the end of Group 4 boarding they were already taking carry-on bags at the jetway to check into the baggage compartment. We had a 1:05 connection in Toronto to catch our flight to London. They could give us no assurances that our luggage would make the connection. Thankfully we were able to talk our way onboard and found space to store our bags. When I was finally seated I had to warn the person seated in front of me to please not recline. Sitting with my back flush to the seat, my knees were literally in contact with the chair in front of me. There was ZERO room for that passenger to recline without causing me great pain. I sat on our five hour flight in great discomfort. Adding to my discomfort was a lack of food and zero entertainment. Paying for food is fine and I did it but on such a long flight it seems abusive. Food should be provided on longer journals. That all all I could do was read was also fine but video and Internet are increasingly expected and this flight had neither. I'll have doubts about ever flying Canada Air Rogue again."
Pros: "Nothing. I'm happy that it wasn't worse."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Unhelpful ground staff. I missed my connecting flight due to bad weather and the attitude of the Air Canada staff was total indifference. I was told by the ground staff in Philadelphia that someone will be there to help us to quickly get to our connecting flight. Not only was no one there , but the quicker route to the gate closes after 11pm making us take the long way, therefore ensuring that we would miss the connecting flight. The two employees making new reservations took more than an hour to deal with 7 passengers. If you're economy class not only do they not pay for a hotel, they do not help in any way whatsoever other than handing you a card with a phone number to call to make your reservations (at a discounted price). After arriving at the hotel at 3 am in the morning, checking out at 1pm and spending 10hrs at the airport I finally got on my flight and spent another 14 hours in an uncomfortable seat before arriving in Delhi. Overall a terrible experience. I will never fly Air Canada again. You can only truly judge a business by seeing how it behaves when something goes wrong. Air Canada failed miserably!"
