Cons: "The plane didn’t have water in the bathrooms in the back of the plane so we had to use wet wipes to clean our hands afterwards. Entertainment system was slow. No complementary meals offered even though it was an international flight."

Cons: "Not enough washrooms for # of people. Denied us of from WR. Food carts blocked WR access to most people for long periods of time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment unless purchased. Seats were very tight -no leg room"

Pros: "It left on time"

Pros: "Everything, we were on time and everything was perfect."

Cons: "Flight delay"

Cons: "serious delays and the staff were not very friendly. Weren't willing to go above and beyond for travellers that had been sitting in airports all day! Probably one of the poorest crews i have encountered on Air Canada."

Pros: "Comfortable aisle seat"
Cons: "Better first class deals"

Pros: "I like that we made it safely."
Cons: "The crew seemed to not like their job and were very short with customers."

Pros: "Nothing stands out!"
Cons: "I don't like the idea of paying for a checked bag. I have been spoiled by Southwest. The crew appeared to be in a big hurry with their service and I received the smallest beverage cup. It looked more like a "shot glass" with no refills. Would have been better off to cancel this service. I used to be a big fan of Air Canada. No more! They have really changed for the worse."

Cons: "sitting in the middle seat unless you pay extra"

Pros: "Entertainment options were good and flight was pretty on time."
Cons: "All was ok. Would like more snack options."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight arrived about 30 minutes early. Also, it left a little late. For me, the less time on the plane the better."
Cons: "Guy next to wanted to charge phone a laptop in USB port in front of me b/c his was our of order. This worked out OK but in a small space it's not so good. He was bare foot too. Take of your shoes but wear socks, please....Plane was not hot, actual a litter chilly."

Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."

Pros: "The crew members were also friendly"
Cons: "The boardung gate was changed but no announcement was made"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not comfortable at all, seats are too crowded, and cabin was way too hot!! Some ppl had to undress their babies..."

Pros: "Flight from STL to YYZ was unremarkable, which isn't a bad thing when it comes to air transportation. Bit of a delay leaving, waiting for de-icing trucks to show up and do their work, but I'm not sure that's Air Canada's fault."

Pros: "The service was timely ,the flight was smooth, great views of NYC and also fast"
Cons: "Entertainment system and USB charging port were not functional. The crew did try to re-set the system but no luck."

Pros: "Air Canada ground crew where very good and helpful as where all staff"
Cons: "Plane was overly cramped, if you eliminate one set of seats and only had 8 across and less row, I think you would make great improvements to overall customer satisfaction if the seating was mad alittle more comfortable"

Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "1. Plane had "mechanical" issues and was delayed 2. Seats are horribly uncomfortable 3. No free snacks or food at all on a 6 hours flight This was my first flight, and unless AC is significantly cheaper than other airlines, I won't me flying AC again as a result of the above."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Flights were on time and all flight staff very nice and courteous. Planes were clean."
Cons: "On rerun fights had delays leaving. The flight from Toronto to Columbus did not have a bathroom to use Had used trash in the seat pockets on all flights. On the flight from Toronto was sitting by emergency exit door and flight attendant said to read the instructions located I seat pocket but there were none ."

Cons: "I was very disappointed that the airline served absolutely no food to passengers for such a long flight. Other airlines serve meals and beverages to their passengers on trans-Atlantic flights. I doubt I will fly Air Canada again for such a flight, due to the lack of interest and care provided the passengers."

Pros: "Aircraft was originally booked solid, but a last minute change of aircraft switched us to a larger aircraft so everyone could spread out and get a little more room. Crew was energetic, enthusiastic and pleasant. Overall the flight was above average, mainly due to the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is always an issue (I'm 6'4"). Thankfully this flight was not booked solid and there was no one sitting in that dread middle seat. The food was Mediocre at best. We ordered a pizza for lunch, the toppings apparently shifted in flight and the cheese and pepperoni slid off the crust and was sitting on one side of the box with the crust on the other... (Advice - Stick with sandwiches, crackers and cheese, etc. instead of the hot meals on Air Canada)."

Cons: "Seats are small and these are the regular seats"

Pros: "Reliable. Easy to board. On time!"

Pros: "the crew members were friendly"
Cons: "that you don't give any snacks for price of ticket. at least peanuts or pretzels. that's ridiculous. southwest reigns."

Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"

Pros: "I liked all the assistant they gave to make a person comfortable."
Cons: "That we had no choice for the seat on the plane"

Pros: "The staff were friendly"
Cons: "The flight ran late and we were not kept up to date on what was going on....... In addition I prepaid for my meal and when the trolly service got to me in row 33 they told me the food was finished but I could get some snacks. They then brought me a variety of snacks. It was my understanding that a meal would have been available to customers in flight once it has been prepaid.. This was very poor customer service"

Cons: "Someone else was sitting in our seats and when asked they said they had lost their boarding pass and hence don't know their seat number. I called the flight attendant for help and he checked our boarding passes and asked us to wait at the back of the plane. He stood there for another 10-15 minutes and we were not helped. Finally, another flight crew member came down to the back and asked us to sit in a row almost to the back with barely any legroom. I am 6'2" and was cramped into the seat. It was horrible!!"

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: "I liked the streaming entertainment I enjoyed the friendliness of the crew I was pleased with the Canada air app allowing check-in and tracking of flight"
Cons: "The comfortability of the flight was poor. Both my wife and I were too uncomfortable to be able to sleep on out more than 9 hour flight. Leg room bad, seats uncomfortable."

Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Loved the leg room. Flight was on time and got our luggages on time, flight attendants were very nice and helpful! overall flight was very comfortable. will fly with Air Canada in the future again :)"

Cons: "It is Air Canada Express. It has long delay hours both to and from for us traveling from Chicago O'Hare to Japan. No explanation. Made us missed out flight in Tokyo and had to stay at hotel. Air Canada did not honor our flight mileages because of their delay, they had to put us to UA. UA was bad too."

Pros: "Good movie selections and a personal screen as opposed to needing to use a personal device."
Cons: "It was much warmer in the middle of the plane than towards the front of the plane. I had requested the assistance of the crew several times by pushing the button [which lit up the light above my seat] but there was never a response. Only when they passed by my seat would I be able to get their attention by flagging them down. My seat was broken and trouble shooting was not an option for the crew."

Cons: "no movie screens and I didn't have a device to watch anything on :{"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick, efficient, on time"
Cons: "Seats had least legroom of any plane I can remember. I'm not that tall and my knees were in the seat pocket the whole 5 hr flight. Also, the seats could stand to be a lot cushier. I felt like I was sitting on a piece of cardboard after the first 2 hours."

Pros: "Crew Only."
Cons: "AC website states for US and Canada allow 120 mins. We arrived to the airport 130 mins inadvance. We had no checkin bags but we almost missed our flight. (Many people did miss our flight). You need to allow at least 2 -3 hrs for US security checks. Because we almost missed our flight, we didn't have time to purchase food preboarding and the selection in the plane was very limited. My partner is 6'1 and the seat was extremely uncomfortable for him and it was not in our budget to upgrade. There was no free entertainment in the plane. You needed to rent a tableT!"

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "The person we sat next to. And the great flying of the pilots."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Requested a wheel chair from the curb . Upon arrival, no wheel chair. we waited and waited. Then my friend went and got a wheel chair for me. we then joined our two friends, who also had wheelchairs. however, they had first class and was taken immediately to the first class lounge. I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way. Air Canada mad sure of that. also Not a peanut unless we spent money!!!"

Pros: "The ground staff were vl.ery helpfull"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable that I have sat in in my 60 years of flying. It was a nearly full plane and they ran out of some of the breakfast food by rhe third row was being served. I would not fly on Air Canada Rough again."

Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Lack of services in Air Canada is disappointing. I asked for an iPad, which, i was asking to rent to watch a movie and no one got back to me."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment and service was great. The Toronto airport waiting area was also good."
Cons: "The luggage drop line was terrible. Only few stations were open and they worked incredibly slow. At the Toronto airport, we were made to fill up customs forms even though we were set for international transfers. None of the questions on the form made any sense since we were not entering Canada but rather leaving for other international destinations. Because of this formality, we had to pass another line which took another 30 minutes. Furthermore, they denied me at the counter because my original check in crew was unable to print my second boarding pass for some technical reason. But, there was noone at the customer service desk to print a boarding pass for me. I had to wait another twenty minutes just for this! All of this happened in a "neverland" section of the airport that didn't even have any restrooms! This could really turn into a nightmare scenario."

Cons: "Small plane, seated in very back row, unable to tilt seats back. no food no service."

Cons: "Delays can happen but gate changes were way too much. And the lady at the gate desk was very unkind. When I ask some info she almost yelled at me! She said she just announced, but some ppl might have been at the gate and some might have not. God, I was not there to get a lecture."

Cons: "It's too bland and they charge you for your luggage. The ticket wasn't cheap to begin with."

Pros: "The accuracy"
Cons: "The chairs"

Cons: "They held us on the plane from Indy to Chicago for so long that most of us knew we were going to miss our flights. I ran all the way to my gate to discover that the plane took off 10 minutes earlier than it was supposed to. I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour. I was grateful but at the same time I was kind of displeased that he didn't offer that to me originally."

Cons: "They lie about carry luggage space. The somehow don't want the overhead space to be full and force your luggage to be checked in when boarding. You'll end up spend possibly 20 more minutes waiting for your luggage after arrive."
