Airline reviews

Cons: "I didn’t fly out of Philadelphia because the flight was 5 hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Had to go get my luggage, go home and try to fly today! Terrible! All my plans screwed up!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 hour delay because of rain west jet and porter were on time but air canada delayed My seat was apparently broken had a window seat with no one else in my row and then I was placed ina Center seat although other options were open The attendant comes on the air and says they need to manually start the engine one by one because the electric start to make it easy was not working All and all not a pleasant experience at all"

Pros: "90 minutes"
Cons: "90 minutes"

Pros: "I loved everything about this flight, from take off to landing. Our pilot was amazing and he flew so smoothly esp at landing."

Pros: "Quick and easy"

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"

Pros: "The extra seating room on the plane"
Cons: "The booking times from kayak to air canada did not match. Air canada shows times in hundred hours and kayak shows them in am/pm."

Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"

Cons: "delayes again....."

Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Way too long of a flight not to be able to recline much, stretch your legs much or get comfortable. Miserable"

Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"

Pros: "My group of five arrived to the airport late (one hour before the flight took off), but the crew worked together to quickly process all of us and get us through to ensure that we didn't miss our flight. We really appreciated it!"

Cons: "While booking the tickets I was told that my luggage will be checked in till my final destination but I had to collect them at Narita airport. I had to cancel my plans of sight seeing at Tokyo downtown due to this."

Pros: "Son enjoyed seeing Niagara Falls from the air"

Cons: "Boarding Zones 3-5 is always a mess"

Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked to Wednesday."

Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."

Cons: "No end to delays."

Pros: "Oft times Air Canada crews can be a bit less than friendly/hospitable but this crew were smiling, friendly and I thought very above average for an Air Canada crew"

Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."

Pros: "Decent flight. Sadly the audio on my inflight entertainment system did not work. Regular seats are cramped as per usual."

Cons: "Not getting home when I needed to."

Cons: "I did not like aircanada changed my sit without asking me.I did not like delays."

Pros: "The crew were attentive"
Cons: "This is an old plan that desperately needs upgrading: it's visibly worn down, the seats are old and uncomfortable, bathrooms were gross, etc. I was also surprised to have to pay for food on a nearly 6 hour, international flight. But even with that said if you're going to make people pay have a decent menu and make sure you have everything available that's on the menu. Amazing how different this flight was from our Munich to Toronto flight."

Cons: "There was a yappy dog on the flight which the owner kept outside of the kennel for much of the flight. This is a serious security and health safety breach. One of the flight attendants said "I have a dog so I understand" and let he continue to kee the dog outside the kennel. Flight from hell."

Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."

Cons: "The flight attendants were overwhelmingly rude and unhelpful."

Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."

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: "Must have been a newer plane. Very quiet engine comfortable seats. I didn't use any onboard entertainment except my own."

Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."

Pros: "Amazing"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."

Pros: "Actually a very good flight, the flight was delayed by less than a half hour, but was really no bother. Slept very well and had enough leg room."
Cons: "The food was not even close to good or even average."

Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."

Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"

Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"

Pros: "GOOD LEG ROOM"
Cons: "THE FOOD STILL SUCKED."

Pros: "able to get a whole row to myself"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment unless you had your own laptop or other device"

Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."

Pros: "nothing was overpowering good, just an average flight there & back"
Cons: "the entertainment system was terrible"

Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."

Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Typical noisy turbo prop plane. It was an hour late."

Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"

Pros: "aircraft was new 787 - very spacious with excellent head and leg room. Plane ride was smooth and with very little roughness even during turbulence. Take off and landing extremely smooth."
Cons: "As a rule airplane food is not the best. Having the rolls warmed would be nice."

Pros: "Great service"
