Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Crew could be friendlier."
Pros: "Seats too small. Lousey food was lae"
Pros: "Comfortable and a very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Terrible layover in Vancouver. There was not need to make us leave the plan for 3 hours and get back on the same plan"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Nice 787"
Cons: "Very cramped no room to move. I can't believe the meals that were served. Very small portions. A slice of bread for breakfast. No butter just dry bread and coffee!!"
Pros: "They were very kind and helpful when my daughter became unexpectedly ill during the flight, bringing cold wash cloths, ice etc, and they checked in on her regularly until landing. Much appreciated!"
Pros: "Issues caused by weather, otherwise flight was fine."
Cons: "First time flying with Air Canada, mixups from the start of the journey until I finally got on my connecting flight"
Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."
Cons: "My flights were so behind I missed my connection for Toronto to Tel Aviv and was rerouted to London and then Frankfurt but the plane was late getting there as well. Air canada had no crew on the ground and over and hour wait for customer service on the phone so i had no way to find out what my reticketing status was. I was passed off to numerous other airlines and sent through the airport to the incorrect terminals in heathrow causing another missed flight. Air canada did not accept the responsibility to maintain my reservation and get me to my destination efficiently. Even when I spoke with a phone representative the person was rude and never sent confirmation of my flights so I had no reference point for flight numbers or air lines. All of his added up to more than 13 hours of delays on what was already a 24 hour trip. Worst travel experience of my life."
Cons: "There was a horrid family in the row in frony of me that absolutley refused to control their child at all, even when airline staff stepped in , so a really long flight was made to seem even longer and sleeping was out of the question."
Cons: "Power outlet's didn't work"
Pros: "The crew was exceptionallly good. They knew the passengers were annoyed because of the delay in takeoff and they made it up to us with Extra care and attention. Very pleasant people"
Cons: "The flight was about 40 minutes late taking off."
Pros: "Boarding, service, entertainment we're all good."
Cons: "Early morning flights from Toronto to Boston are a bit bumpy usually. Pilots do their best to maneuver around those."
Pros: "Airfare is very reasonable. Food on the planes are average. Service is average."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Vancouver to Portland"
Pros: "On board food acceptable"
Cons: "Entertainment system wifi connection kept dropping. Crew were oblivious to the issue and unable to address."
Pros: "I liked the care, the kindness, and the help"
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "Not a thing. Not a single thing. Truly no reason to encourage this airline."
Cons: "Absolutely awful experience. Zero entertainment options, save for BYOD which didn't even work for me - never was able to watch more than the first 30 seconds of anything, provided it would work at all. Also the film selection, had it worked, was wretched. Food was bland even by airline standards. Flight was delayed. I'm used to sleeping on these flights, even flying economy, but these seats were even more cramped than I'm used to. Perhaps all this would be forgivable had my flights been cheap, but no - it was about the most expensive trans-Atlantic flight I've had in recent memory."
Cons: "Flight was 1h late"
Pros: "Flight was good, decent food and drink"
Cons: "the delay caused ua to miss connection and had to be rebooked"
Cons: "Needed to reschedule got no help from Air Canada"
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: "Airplane, legroom, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "Had 2 delays, one at gate for 40 minutesand secind after already boarding - for an hour!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "The credit was not polite and quite unfriendly."
Pros: "Had screens and movies available. Crew was nice and flight wasn't overly packed."
Pros: "Staff were very nice"
Cons: "2 out of 4 of my meals were incorrect. I had asked for vegan meals and 2 of them were clearly not vegan."
Pros: "Flight was on time with easy boarding and exiting"
Cons: "The peddling of food drink and duty free alcohol was not pleasant plus not given with a smile"
Cons: "Kayak failed to notify us of a change in our flight of four hours and change of route"
Pros: "crew was helpful and nice, especially in the terminal which is hard for mom to get around. If you need a wheelchair remember to ask beforehand. We hadn't so we had to wait sometimes while they located one for us. As we had long layovers (so mom could rest) this wasn't a problem for us, but with shorter turn around times it could be an issue."
Cons: "people were rude. couldn't lean seat back and it was a red eye so I had no sleep for 25 hours. WAY too NOISY for a red-eye flight which also didn't help with rest."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No air conditioning made it uncomfortable"
Cons: "Small, older plane = not much room and very little comfort Arrived late because?!?!?!?"
Pros: "The crew was doing the best they could and was professional."
Cons: "Where to start, I have taken Air Canada 1 time before to Regina and you lost my luggage, luckily it was on the flight home. This time check in was very disorganized and unprofessional (I got scolded when my luggage bumped the post that forms the line that was set up after half the passengers were there making the last to show up first in line.) The flight was delayed and hour for a broken air mask upon departure . The monitor screens were hard to see and harder to hear. Upon arrival we sat for 30 minutes because they couldn't shut the engines down. Customs was a breeze but the walk from terminal to customize to the next terminal had me winded, luckily my connecting Air Canada flight was late also . And this was the better part of my experience. My flight to Athens was miserable ( lots of screaming children spread out through the plane). And when I thought it was over my luggage was separated and lost for 3 days. I should send you the underwear as a reminder of my experience"
Pros: "Great crew. But aircraft had mechanical issues."
Cons: "Stuck on plane for 90 minutes before take off."
Pros: "The plane wasn't too bad; comfortable and plenty of movies to choose from; the only thing headsets and volum didn't work as well."
Cons: "Airport was a complete mess; I would say I will never fly out of Rome. Air canada wasn't too bad here since we didn't run into any issues with rebooking flights"
Cons: "Spending 90 minutes going through security and immigration is horrendous. I never experience this when travelling with WestJet. Considering I have not traveled with Air Canada for some time I will not be booking with them again in the near future."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Very slow boarding."
Cons: "Limited selection in entertainment"
Pros: "Nice attendants."
Cons: "Air Canada website says some complimentary spirits in Economy but such is not the case. Only entertainment via iPad but no GPS display and not good selections for movies or shows. Low quality dinner and one slice of banana bread for breakfast."
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "I lucked out and got an isle seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed confused and very unorganised when serving. Very slow."
Pros: "I loved the 787 with the mood lighting and humidified air. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive. I loved the warm towels after take off and before landing!!!"
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Toronto. Could have done with a much shorter layover. A Dr. Pepper as a soda selection would be nice but not essential."
Pros: "Everyone was super polite"
Cons: "Food quality was extremely poor. Cup noodle for lunch and rice porridge for breakfast is not what we paid for!!! In addition, Japanese crew cannot announce in proper Japanese She must have forgotten polite Japanese expressions ... Sad."
Pros: "Flights were on time and the crew was friendly. Each seat had its own TV with many movies. I liked that the on board menu for food had many options including buying a first class meal."
Cons: "I wish they would give out even little cookies for free or something. Everything is pay for purchase."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed a couple hours, customs was "full" at Pearson causing more delays"
Cons: "No complementary food"
Cons: "Food was not very good. Could not identify the green stuff and the eggs were interesting."
Cons: "The flight was chaneed gates and not announced that it had been done, we just noticed that it had been reassigned. Not a big deal but it was a 10 minute walk to the new gate and could have resulted in a missed flight if we hadn't been paying attention. The flight was also delayed over an hour and still listed as an on time boarding for the original boarding time, people can make choices about eating or restroom breaks if they know they have an extra hour, also when travelling with a toddler it helps with planning feedings and naps so that the baby doesn't scream the whole flight."
Cons: "Meals were tiny and tasted like they were prepared in a lab, not a kitchen."
