Pros: "We got there without crashing."

She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."

Instead of telling customers to arrive 3 hours before departure and it is their problems if they can make it, a better way to be helpful is to have representatives ready to spend 3 minutes to look at customers' status, offer feasible options and point people to the right directions right away. Be a part of the solution! Don't be such a pain when you can offer a helping hand."

I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Pros: "For some reason the seats didn't seem as cramped as usual. There were no long delays."
Cons: "We didn't get aisle seats. We didn't expect the food offerings to be great, and we weren't disappointed. We would have preferred that Trump not be president on our arrival. Maybe next time."

Cons: "Missed connection because of their computer issues. The hotel they arranged for us was a 30minute drive from airport. We passed 50 hotel alternatives on the way. Nobody greeted us at the gate to explain our options. My luggage never arrived"
Cons: "I wouldn't say the crew service was nice. It was just ok. They kept leaning over passengers more than just a bit. They were disorganized and even though the food was for sell, the selection was very very limited. It was not like "I would like this", it was more like "well, what do you have"?. Finally, the landing was pretty rough."
Pros: "the service was excellent"
Pros: "Tv options"
Cons: "I'm only 5'10" and my knees were digging into chair in front of me. Also, we had everyone boarded about ten minutes early (which is awesome) and we were told we would leave a bit early, but then sat there for about 15 minutes and departed even later due to long line for take off."
Cons: "Never made the flight and the only flight air canada is willing to put me on is 24 hours later. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."
Cons: "They wouldn't seat us together"

Pros: "Everything was great I had a Blast"
Pros: "Overall everything was good, i liked the customer service of the crew. Boarding was on time. Everything went smooth. Overall I was very happy according to the price i paid for the Tickets. Customer, Tanmay Bhatt"

Pros: "wonderful plane"
Cons: "NO WIFI!!!"
Cons: "Horrible to say the least Never made it to Toronto"
Cons: "it was delayed for 1 hour"
Cons: "Plane edges were rather dirty with lots of debris. A little gross."
Cons: "* Worst food I have ever had on a plane. The crew did not even know what was in some of the food, which is not comforting if you have allergies. * Entertainment system earphones were so bad they were unusable."
Cons: "The airport crew lacked professionalism & courtesy when relaying information on the flight being delayed. Bad attitude from airport crew & lack of communication with delayed flight."
Pros: "The trip was amazing, for the extremely prompt and organized Japan crew boarding to the great and smooth flying despite the long time it took to get to Torinto"
Cons: "The food onboard could use an improvement, it felt very poor and flavorless. The Toronto immigration processing was cumbersome and time consuming, took us about an hour plus to clear customs which left us just enough time to make it to the gate for our connection flight to EWR. The process could be improved to allow for us to decompress enough to allow for a more relaxed connection flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and then when we boarded, were told that the flight would be delayed again . . . and then informed that the flight was canceled. The staff did not know what was happening, and kept us on the plane for almost 2 hours, before letting us off and telling us there were no hotels available. It was a nightmare experience transferring in Toronto. The crew did what they could, but they were largely kept in the dark too."
Pros: "Efficient, vigilant and helpful crew"
Cons: "I found the seats quite uncomfortable which is unusual for me as I don't have back or neck issues. Once I was able to position the seat after take-off the comfort was improved."
Pros: "Staff was courteous"
