Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."

Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."

Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."

Pros: "The plane was nice and quiet, and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "It was so cold!!"

Pros: "I did not make it on the flight as the time was given was 5:35 and the flight left at 4:00."
Cons: "I was not given correct information and being a very novice traveller did not check the information."

Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"

Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."

Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"
Cons: "didn’t love the lights coming on in the middle of the night"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."

Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"

Cons: "The food was extremely mediocre for an $18 meal."

Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was orderly, I got a window seat."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable (very little leg and arm room, chairs didn't recline at all), WiFi was unavailable."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"

Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"

Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."

Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"

Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"

Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."

Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."

Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"

Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"

Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."

Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."

Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."

Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"

Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."

Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."

Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."

Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"

Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"

Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"

Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."

Pros: "Helpful polite staff. Many great movies and tv shows to select from."
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an uncomfortable, small, non reclining seat."

Pros: "The flight is decently cheap"
Cons: "Everything else is not really pleasant for a long distance travel. I've never felt more uncomfortable in my life during a flight. But i suppose you get what you paid for."

Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."

Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."

Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""

Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."

Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."

Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"

Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"

Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"

Pros: "The service was okay and departed on time."
Cons: "I didnt like not having entretainment (no TV or free wifi). Meals not included on economy class."

Pros: "The crew were very nice overall but one flight attendant in particular was incredible. I didn’t get a name but he was friendly, welcoming, and kind."
Cons: "I sat in an emergency row with an empty seat to my left and really did not like how the passenger in the row behind me kept getting up and walking into my row to get his stuff from the bins."

Pros: "Sleeping and being left alone"
Cons: "Food, Service by cabin crew because they never smiled"

Pros: "Amazing punctuality, both on the way out to Lisbon and on the return to London."
Cons: "Cannot really think of anything that needed attention on these flights."

Pros: "Super friendly"
Cons: "Maybe a hot meal?"

Pros: "Pillows, blankets and earphones waiting on the seat and it was a lovely crew. Hurricane Dorian made us late for our connecting flight but we were impressed with the efficiency of a waiting rebooked boarding pass upon arrival."
Cons: "Even with an upgraded seat purchase they were uncomfortable and hard to sleep in. This is an ongoing problem on most airlines. One would think that with technology, a better system could be designed..."

Cons: "Punctuality"

Cons: "If baggage claim was faster"

Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I have taken in a very very long time. The ride was smooth but the seat was so terribly uncomfortable. I was in pain on arrival."

Cons: "So many delays, no real info provided. When we had to stay overnight they didn’t mention it would take 4 hours to get our bags which actually never came. Airline industry sucks and deltas one of the worst."

Cons: "Not cancelling it"

Pros: "flight was more than 4 hours late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "flight was more than 4 hours late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Cons: "Passport control in Lisbon was awful and many people missed their flight in spite of them being made aware of the issue."

Pros: "clean and fast"
Cons: "use airport finger in Lisbon airport"

Pros: "First time flying with TAP PORTUGAL and it was a great experience"

Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."

Cons: "3:30 hrs delay lost my convection no one to talk to or any help they gave me nothing I had to stay overnight at my expense n pay new ticket hotel food taxi etc nobody will help or respond for anything"

Cons: "bumping and no coffee"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Surprised and delighted to be served a tasty sandwich and fruit drink plus glass of wine on a 3 pm 2 + hr flight from Lisbon to London"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"

Pros: "Clean modern aircraft"
Cons: "Left 35 minutes late; had to take a bus to the plane in Lisbon (no gate)"

Cons: "Our tickets were economy class Y for all of our flights, and we each checked a bag free on the outbound trip. But, returning we had to pay 170 euros for our 2 checked (1 each) bags. TAP (Air Portugal) in Toulouse said our outbound flights were "Basic" fares while our return flights were "Discounted" fares. Discounted fares do not include checked bags while Basic fares include 1 free checked bag. We paid $3,106.36 for the round trip for both of us, which hardly seems like a discounted fare, before paying an additional 170 euros on the return flight. I will be looking into filing a Class Action suit trying to recover all overcharges on behalf of all passengers."

Cons: "Not getting new business configuration"

Pros: "The planes were fantastic, wish all other airlines provided the same amenities. There was ample leg room (even in the economy peasant class), there were innovative changes in the pullout tray, beverage holder, convenience of charging devices, a mirror, specific pockets for books/glass cases/snacks. And a very comfortable headrest which made snoozing easier."
Cons: "Contacting TAP Customer Service was a nightmare. It took forever before anyone answered the phone &, when they did, it was VERY difficult to understand their English. Forget reaching ANYONE after 9 pm; ditto for trying to do anything online, e.g., checking in, picking seats, modifying reservations, etc. If you are forced to do anything at night, prepare yourself for total frustration."

Pros: "Pretty unremarkable flight in an Embraur jet. On time"
Cons: "Basic food but wasn't expecting anything so it was a nice surprise"

Cons: "Without notice, we were put on “standby” line, all of the workers told us all of the flights for the remainder of the day and that we could wait by the gate all day or just “take a taxi” from Lisbon to Porto.... a 3 hour ride. Ridiculous! We finally begged our way into being squeezed into a flight to Porto. But of course our bags didn’t make it with us and they could not locate where they were or track what time they would get to Porto... we sat at the airport for hours waiting for our bag until they finally offered to deliver them at a later time, which we are still waiting. We missed a full day of our vacation to Portugal because of this situation and are still hoping that our bags will make it to our destination..."

Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Cons: "The boarding process was nutz. We had to take a bus away from the terminal to board the plane. The flight was delayed. I was not very happy to have to spend $92 to check 2 bags."

Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the chairs are so close together. When passenger wanted to incline their chairs it would be too far back to be comfortable for the person behind. And to sit on the plane for a long fight in this uncomfortable position is not good. They need to make sure all chairs a fixed and now obstructing passengers comfortable manner"

Pros: "Flight on time and safe Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Cramped seating Boarding dreadfully slow"

Cons: "We booked flight several months ago and it included seating assignment, so we choose our seats. Then when we check-in they had changed them to the last row of the plane. We had received a couple of emails asking for us for option to pay for advance seating. Assume they had changed their policy and now were charging. We had a close connection at LHR and being last off, we almost missed connection. Horrible"

Pros: "On time, easy boarding"

Cons: "The delay on the take off"

Cons: "We had to postpone our first leg from London to Lisbon by a day and then they cancelled our return flight without telling us!!! So, we were trapped in Lisbon with no flight to return home. We called them and they said, "we cancelled your tickets and only have business class seats available for you and your toddler." We said no thank you. If we were going to spend 1k on a return flight, we were going to take British Airways. TAP, never again."

Cons: "The service was below average, nobody seems to be eager to assist. The food that was offered on the flight was below expectations. The company should work on improving customer care"

Pros: "Decent staff on the plane"
Cons: "Could not move my seat the plane was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Plane was delayed. Crew made no effort to keep us informed. Had to stand in the hot sun for almost an hour."

Cons: "They cancelled the flight, losted the baggage and couldn't help to resolve the problem. They also lied about the flight they wanted to replace to solve the problem which even didn't exist in their company. So, I will never ever take the flight from this compound again."

Pros: "Crew friendliness and attention"
Cons: "They ran out of diet coke and coke zero literally right after takeoff which is a joke!"

Pros: "The staff was very nice. Only bad incident was the misinformation on getting the D Tax. We went early to the airport to do it but could not get it because of erroneous information form the check in agent."
Cons: "When we checked our bags the check in agent did not let us take out bags after getting the boarding pass so we could get the D Tax refund at Customs. She said it was not necessary. She was wrong. French customs wanted to see the merchandise which we no longer had. When we complained at TAP we were told do it in Lisbon. Again in Lisbon we could not get the D tax because that custom agent wanted to see the merchandise which was being transferred to our Lisbon - Newark flight. We loss refunds of over $400. This problem ruined a perfect trip."

Cons: "The lady changed my 11H seat for another seat (29B) when I claim that this is not fear , a man said to me that if I insist in this matter he will not let me in Or flight , for me this was an abuse"

Pros: "Slept the entire way there. Comfy seats"

Pros: "Everything was perfect! The staff was friendly and the food was nice. I found that there was more leg room than on other airlines."
Cons: "I used TAP to depart beautiful Portugal."

Pros: "Easy check in and bag handling"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Not much. Lunch"
Cons: "We paid to check the bag In and when we arrived the girl could not see this. We showed her clearly the paper then she charged ya and realised she had made a mistake but couldn't refund us. Terrible experience. Don't use the."

Pros: "Flights were on-time, planes were clean/newer, snacks were good."

Pros: "The flight was fine, no issues. Plane was fine, no WIFI or entertainment. Served a small meal. For the price, excellent trip."
Cons: "All was good."

Cons: "Made me check luggage once about to board and luggage with my medicine never made it to my final destination"

Pros: "Meal was good, and they gave us a snack since it was a long, trans-Atlantic flight. Crew was friendly."

Pros: "Ask persons for veg or non veg snacks before u served please."

Pros: "Lots of flight options."
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights late, no real explanation for inbound. Boarding on inbound was chaotic."

Cons: "I had food poisoning from the ricota pasta I ate in the plane."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "One of the Worst flights for punctuality 3.5 hours of delays ! Missed all my connections ! Over 24 hours in waiting ! Will try not to use air Canada again!!!"

Pros: "Great gluten free meal. Calling ahead of time to order was well worth it."

Pros: "The flight crew were great and very accommodating."
Cons: "A majority of the passengers on flight either barely caught, or missed, their connecting flight due to this flight being so delayed."

Pros: "We flew to Toronto on the rebooked flight and we were treated very badly by the gate agent who simply told us: Go see customer service, you are not on this flight' without even an attempt to explain why we could not get on to the flight to London. I think they do not respect their customers. Very disappointed with Air Canada' service."
Cons: "Nothing about our trip to London on Air Canada was positive. We had requested vegetarian meals for all our flights. They did not provide us any food on the flight because they did not have our names on the list for Vegetarian meals on the rebooked flight. Our experience with Air Canada was everything that is the worst in airline travel and customer service."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful and nice, plane was new and in a very good condition. Flight was not fully booked so we could move around and take even 4 seats to lay down and fly comfortably."
Cons: "Boarding was over an hour later than it supposed to be. Toronto always has some " surprises" for passengers. Food could be better."

Pros: "Everything was quick and efficient in boarding and replanting, the captains spoke to us to tell us what was going on. Food was good."
Cons: "My tv screen was broken, meal service was pretty late and drinks were not served before, as a result the lights were only off in the flight for a very brief while."

Cons: "Unhelpful crew,dreadful entertainment and dire food!"

Pros: "tout était bien - very good"
Cons: "all was good"

Pros: "Flights left on-time. Leather seats reclined comfortably. Crew offered plenty of food & drink throughout the flight. I would definitely consider booking again with Air Canada"

Pros: "Smooth"

Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."

Pros: "The plane, which was American-made. Smooth ride in the air, no baggage issues."
Cons: "The crying children in front of me, the hour and a half delay, and the late dinner service. Dinner came at 8:30, after staring at those with special meals eat and finish an hour before everyone else, they should wait with the rest of us. Breakfast was pretty lackluster. Their online app and check in is awful- they should hire new coders and UX designers to increase functionality."

Pros: "Flight attends were very attentive to all passengers. I especially liked that they kept everyone hydrated by offering drinks every couple of hours."

Cons: "Flight delayed due to engine problems..10 hours was a bit long though when you have limited vacation time."

Pros: "Very attentive crew, nice to have food on real china, very nice meal, very comfortable seats"
Cons: "Early impressions of good food were ruined by a dreadful "chicken" sandwich wrapped in cling film. What a terrible last impression. Unfortunately our flight was delayed 85 minutes. A pity that the apology never includes an explanation."

Cons: "Was put on plane to France, 5 hour layover. Still waiting for my luggage to arrive. Frustrating in extreme."

Pros: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."

Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"

Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy which made a big difference. Lots of leg room, a menu, pre flight drinks."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."

Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."

Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The stewardesses don't smile."

Pros: "Arriving early Leaving on time"

Pros: "Friendly crew very helpful. Not as loud as the last flight."
Cons: "So many people crammed into a small space. Needed more leg room and shoulder room."

Pros: "Good movie selection."
Cons: "3-4-3 economy seating in a 777 that was originally designed for 3-3-3 (2-5-2) makes for really cramped seating. This is in keeping with industry trends, but is regrettable. No brandy/cognac for alcohol selections."

Pros: "Great food and they gave us blankets and even free wine with dinner! I was also able to watch to new movies!"

Pros: "They've replaced the ridiculous entertainment system with a much better one."
Cons: "Unwise cost-saving efforts in the Vancouver Maple Leaf Lounge - obscure magazines only, croissants/pastries replaced with a loaf of bread, etc."

Pros: "Excellent and varied entertainment, very responsive crew"
Cons: "Boarding in Toronto was late, chaotic, poorly managed. Food was meagre, tiny servings of bland food for dinner, a slice of banana bread for breakfast. Hard to believe they couldn't do better."

Cons: "Bread dry and no choice . Fresh fruit would be refreshing"

Cons: "Like riding in the back seat of a corvette."

Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "Seat size made sitting a suffering, as I am quite tall, and was unwilling to pay the extra $100 dollars, which I felt discriminatory (as I have no control over how tall I am)."

Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."

Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "food, no warm towels"

Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."

Pros: "New 787 dreamliner, live up to the hype."
Cons: "Its hard to sleep as the seat is very bench like. Air Canada's food isnt as generous as it use to be, but their fares are quite low so i guess its a tradeoff."

Pros: "Very pleased, the plane was very clean and new, entertainment options were great. The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The food wasn't great. I had the pancakes and then a chicken sandwich, both of which were very average."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Being next to toilets at bulkhead. People queing for bathroom in the extra leg space. I was on the outside seat and people constantly brushed past me and often grabbed hold of the moveable TV set in the dark to steady themselves knocking it. I paid extra money and had more problems. Listened to constant bathroom flushing and odors. Not ideal!"

Pros: "Entertainment choices on this flight/with this plane were endless, and you didn't have to pay extra for them like you do with Condor, for instance. The seats were relatively comfortable, in comparison to the way you are packed into some planes these days. Particularly liked the headrests that were adjustable side to side. It helped in this particular case the flight wasn't completely full, and so I had the seat next to me free."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor food choice and quality , comfort of seats"

Pros: "Most things where fine. Food decent for airline food, slight delay in boarding but still made our connection."
Cons: "Tried to signal stewards for another beverage but got no response. Lack of customer service."

Cons: "Please, Toronto: if you're going to have two planes scheduled to depart at the same time, DON'T put them right next to each other. We boarded at the same time as an Air Canada Rouge flight to Dublin, and not only was it chaos trying to figure out which line you were in, but the staff working the London side of the desk weren't paging over the loudspeaker which group was next to board. It was a mess."

Cons: "Because the flight was delayed, the car rental company let the car go to another customer. A substitute was provided after another 2 hour wait."

Pros: "The flight was more pleasant than I had expected because there was plenty of leg/knee room for me."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The movie selection...and that is about it really..."
Cons: "The fact that they tried bumping me from my flight without giving a reason. My connector flight (also an Air Canada flight) was delayed so much in Detroit that we got to Toronto with just enough time to board and deal with the bumping issue. Also, my luggage was already on the plane to head to London which noone was worried about if they wouldn't have been able to get me a seat. There was little communication between staff members and nobody seemed bothered by this especially with a late arriving plane that they should have known about and had a way to deal with this issue. The crew on the plan keep bumping into me even though I wasn't in the aisle and never apologized. Totally would give a zero or 1 star (at best if it would let me). Totally will not recommend to anyone and will try to not fly with them again if possible."

Cons: "Never made it. Would have missed my parents 30th anniversary if I hadn't bought a fresh ticket on another airline."

Pros: "Food was good, flight attendants were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Once in Toronto couldn't find anyone at the gate counter, flight delayed for 2 hours ( suppose to load at 11:15 and didn't even start loading tell 12:30). The flight didn't push from gate till 2am and flight crew kept saying that we were ahead of schedule. Poor service of the five different airlines I have flown"

Pros: "Wasnt a terrible amout of leg room for coach, and they had Star Wars: The Force Awakens as one of the in flight movies. Food was okay, although they didn't serve it until 1a.m. which was a bit annoying. Good service, very kind workers, and the alcohol was free! Not too many complaints."
Cons: "Didnt serve dinner until 1am. Kind of ridiculous."

Pros: "Been flying Air Canada trans-Atlantic since 2005 and must say that the airline has maintained its service and quality if not improved. Except for food all aspects were good from check in to boarding to inflight service!"
Cons: "Food was boring even though I was in business class!"
