Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Electronic shades!"
Cons: "Timing of meals. The first meal was 2 hours after take off."
Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Sick people coughing and crying babies. :D"
Cons: "Air Canada sucks. Not only did they delay our flight by 2.5 hours, it took them nearly an hour to get our baggage claim!"
Pros: "Kind, friendly staff, boarded on time"
Pros: "The staff was positive, the plane had a movie to watch (although quite a dated system), but there was only drinks given so not much to write home about there."
Pros: "The staff was kind and courteous. Food was ok and they gave us snacks"
Cons: "The seats on the air rouge plane’s were tiny. I’m 5’2 and I was ok because my seat-mate was also small, but if you’re tall or wide, these flights will be uncomfortable. Note: this was an international flight(8hrs). Small seats and no in-flight movie. There was a flight delay due to weather (40 mins) on the way home. I get it. On the way to our destination there was a 4 hour delay due to a problem at the airport. Though frustrating, probably not air canada’s Fault."
Cons: "Stewardess seems very annoyed with flight. There was turbulence so the passengers needed to stay seated - a gentleman next to me asked for a glass of water since there was no refreshment service - the stewardess was very short with him. It’s not the passengers fault. I was surprised - usually the staff is a lot more professional than that."
Pros: "When I got sick, staff were friendly, helpful and soothing until the arrival of the ambulance. They made me feel much better during a very stressful situation."
Cons: "4 hours delay to YYZ from MSP, 2 hours delayed to MSP from YYZ."
Pros: "Crew is good, and as well as food and entertainment are good"
Cons: "The seat is small size and it may make for Asian people. Since the port of HK made the flight on the run way for a long time, that delayed arrival"
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "Video screen loose and no volume control, so Oud I couldn't watch. No food-na more applicable. Seats uncomfortable and tight."
Cons: "weather grounded non stop flight... required my finding a hotel for overnight... loss of MSP hotel, and two days rental car, too... costly and not reimbursable because "act of nature"... earliest way to MSP they said was via Nashville w/long layover... then connecting to Delta upon arrival in MSP, checked bag didn't arrive... it was filled w/medical equipment and AC couldn't tell us where it was... Delta bent over backwards to assist... AC was non-commital and not helpful at all... waited for incoming flights at the airport MSP for 8 hours... no bag... finally, Delta gave us vouchers for dinner and put us in a hotel... when it as really Air Canada's fault... etc, etc..."
Pros: "Flights attendants were very attentive and helpful on flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was quite outdated and not user friendly, but it was nice to have it offered."
Pros: "Love the individual entertainment & the friendly staff team"
Cons: "Felt like a budget flight. We've flown air Canada in the past and this flight seemed like their low end fleet"
Pros: "The flight was half empty so was able to have a role to myself"
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge should be renamed Air Canada Rude. Employees are very un-friendly; Seat design on the plane is the most uncomfortable of any airline out there. Very close to each other and very little padding on cushion of seat. Dirty plane; don’t think they serviced it between flights, garbage in each seat pouch. Very cold on flight, crew did not regulate the climate control. Too many unnecessary announcements both in English then French. Each announcement seemed like it lasted about 10 minutes which no one listen. So much for trying to watch a movie that pauses every time the crew feels the needs to talk. Sat at gate for 30 minutes pass departure time without any explanation until right before we departed (waiting on passengers from late arriving flights). At lease they could have told us. Anyhow this is not the Air Canada of old. Air Canada Rouge shows no signs that they care about the comfort of their passengers."
Cons: "International service quite a bit better, still not lufthansa standard, but better than crossfair/swiss"
Cons: "I wish Air Canada sent check-in emails for flights in as well as out. I didn't get a reminder check-in email when I was flying out and that worried me a bit that there may be something wrong with my reservation. It also irritated me that because I had booked my flight through Kayak and not Air Canada directly I was not able to make any changes to the reservation online - I had to call their reservation phone number (from another country) and be put on hold for 20 minutes (so needless to say it was an expensive phone call)."
Pros: "Staff was really friendly, the flight attendant was even wearing a little witch hat for Halloween, which I really liked. Due to an underbooked flight, we had free choice of seat, because I originally was booked on an aisle seat, I could change to a window seat, that was nice. Since it was a small machine from Toronto to Minneapolis (a little more than 1,5h flight), there was no entertainment system, besides the nice view out of the window. And who likes to start a movie during such a short flight, to not be able to finish it? They also ask you to hand in your carry-on before you enter the plane, because there is not enough space for it inside, which I liked, no wiggeling along the aisle with a little trolley, I just fetched it outside the plane after we landed."
Cons: "Unfortunately, Air Canada didn't serve gluten-free snacks on any of my flights yet (I had good gluten free food though). This is not meant as a negative review, because as an allergic you're usually prepared. It's more a suggestion for gluten-free snacks, peanuts or m&m's work as well as most gummy bears or chocolates :)"
Pros: "they food I did purchase was pretty good."
Cons: "no snack at all, was all food for purchase. The inflight entertainment was nothing if you didn't have their Air Canada App."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Tell the complainers that they should try flying Aeroflot."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say other than passengers should seriously re-consider taking babies and toddlers on the red-eye flights. Let your kids have a good night sleep and fly during the day."
Pros: "We got home but later then expected."
Cons: "Coming home late. Going thru customs took too long. No one to help with directions at Toronto Airport"
Pros: "- On time performance - Friendly crew - Comfortable flights"
Cons: "The gate facility at the Toronto airport was worse than a bus terminal. It was over-crowded and chaotic. Again, we boarded through the tarmac and not through a walkway."
Cons: "Though not in your control, we had a two hour late start. The gate area was crowded with too little seating. It was so far from the main airport area that refreshments were hard to get. The airline did give some snacks but nothing very substantial. Our 8:30 something flight didn't get off until after 10."
Cons: "The boarding gate for small aircraft is very far away from the terminal. There was not enough seating for all those waiting for flights"
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Strong stink coming from bathroom. We were seated toward he back (maybe 2-3 rows from the restroom and it was strong smelling at times."
Pros: "Time of the flight was quick."
Pros: "The only thing good was the aircraft was clean and nice and a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "The crew was rude, the seat couldn't lean back and I couldn't sleep for the entire duration of the trip, the food was awful and a small amount for such a long trip."
Cons: "The flight attendants were overwhelmingly rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "Delayed baggage took 3 days to get to my home. Flight attendant had assured me that the bag (sports equipment) made the connection which it hadn't."
Pros: "Able to check carry on before boarding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and the lounge was not large enough to accommodate all of the passengers in Toronto."
Pros: "Crew and staff on board aircraft were very friendly"
Cons: "Checking in process in Toronto was a mad house. No organization and extremely slow! The aircraft was very crammed and very stuffy. I'm allergic to dust and I coughed the whole 2 and a half hour flight. The legroom is horrible. I'm 5'7" and my knees were pressed up against the seat in front of me. Definitely first and last time flying w/ Air Canada"
Cons: "Overly crowded in the are awaiting for flight. It was not organized well and you could tell staff was getting on edge from customers asking about boarding. The departure times should be spread out to avoid this."
Pros: "Nothing at all actually"
Cons: "Old tiny plane, delayed two hours because of what seemed like sheer stupidity. I mean we had to wait an extra 30 mins on top of the regular delay time because they loaded the bags wrong. I had already been traveling over 24 hours due to the time zone differences and this last flight was just intolerable. Certainly it could have been worse, but this was just terrible already."
Pros: "Pros: The onboard crew was nice. The entertainment was good (nice selection of television and movies) There is an entertainment touch screen for each individual."
Cons: "Cons: They moved the gate THREE times! We had to walk all over the airport because they were so unorganized. The seats were VERY uncomfortable. It was difficult to sit for even a few hours. There are no snacks unless you pay. The entertainment touch screen is of poor quality."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good and the staff did reasonably well even though most of the customers were clearly unhappy."
Cons: "A majority of flights run by Air Canada to the US were delayed. If this had been due to weather, fine, but at least our delay was caused by mechanical malfunction. Our flight was delayed for 5 hours due to multiple different mechanical issues including that the bathroom would not function during the entire flight, the wing flap had issues and the door would not seal correctly. The flight immediately preceding ours to Minneapolis was also delayed by over 4 hours. Surprisingly the flight before that also had a bathroom malfunction that prevented customers from using the bathroom. If this was the exception we could understand, but looking at the history of our flight, it's only on time 23% of the time. The poor customer service people must hate their lives. Something needs to change."
Pros: "Customer care hotline service over the phone was great! They took care of all my problems and was very nice."
Cons: "Customer service at the airport needs to improve tremendously!"
Pros: "We got upgraded into the Elite section, which we excitedly thought would be business class with a nice full recline, as we had been up for more than 24 hours when we left Seoul, but were disappointed. It was more like the Economy Plus on United. A forward cabin with wider seats with a bit more legroom and maybe little bit more recline as a result. On one meal we were served fon china like from business, but on the breakfast, I got china and my husband got the typical plastic and foil square trays. The restroom for the cabin was foreward and was not crowded, which was nice."
Cons: "What I really disliked about the special Elite section was that the arm rests are immovable and the trays embedded in the arms, just like when you are in a bulkhead seat. That's one reason why I avoid the bulkhead seats. So, even though I was sitting next to my husband, it meant that we couldn't remove the 4-6 inches of hard chair arms between us. i could not curl up with my head or feet in his lap, the way we could in a regular economy seat. Therefore I did not sleep on the flight the way I had on the comparable trip outbound."
Pros: "Not much can go wrong on a flight shorter than 90 minutes."
Cons: "3 delays that added up to 1 hr, but counter personnel kept us informed."
Pros: "It was short, thank goodness since our flight was delayed twice."
Cons: "The small claustrophobic feel of the plane. Every time the steward pushed the cart up,the aisle he bumped into me and was kind of rude."
Pros: "I was changed to a new flight which gabe me 5 minutes to nake my conn cting flight! So they then changed me to an earlier fliight. In order to get there, I had to rush to the airport in an expensive taxi instead of by public transport as I had planned. Then on arrival, my bag did not arrive!"
Cons: "I will never choose Air Canada again."
Pros: "Tv in all seats, individual air controls, the crew was nice and I offered up my bag to go on the checked bags when asked and it was the first one out on the bagged claim"
Cons: "I'm 5'8 and my legs hardly fit when sitting straight in the seat"
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Crew was strangely inflexible about rules that I had not encountered before- being only in ticketed seat until at altitude (the flight was very empty), only specific headphones during takeoff & ascent, no headphones or electronic devices at all during final descent and landing."
Pros: "Got me to minneapolis"
Cons: "Boarded via small rickety stairs. Flight delayed over an hour."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, so nothing to ratr"
Cons: "Left very late, bumpy ride and bathroom was broken."
Pros: "Same as first flight."
Cons: "Boarding at terminal was crowded. 4 flights leaving at same time made process difficult."
