Cons: "Delayed flight for 2 hours, rude staff at the JFK airport and then v choppy flight, delayed even more by waiting for an arrival gate in FLL."
Pros: "The crew was polite, responsive and friendly. The food was very good and served hot. For a flight to Japan, I thought $1,000 round trip direct from Boston was an excellent price considering you got 2 complete meals and additional snacks. Much more than I expected. Would fly Japan Airlines again."

Cons: "seat was uncomfortable (cushion very hard)"
Pros: "This flight was part of a longer trip - I flew from Hartford, CT, USA on a different airline and connected to Japan Airlines in Chicago. I flew Chicago to Tokyo in JAL and then from Tokyo to Manila again on JAL. The service on first leg was very good and friendly of my JAL flights, food was good, seat was comfortable. Then on my second flight from Tokyo to Manila I was shocked but thrilled that I had been given an upgrade to first class. The whole experience was outstanding! The seat was incredibly comfortable and the food was phenomenal. The only problem, not that you could call it a problem, was that I was so comfortable with my fluffy pillow and fully reclining seat that I couldn’t stay awake to finish my movie! Thank you!"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "JAL made travelling with a toddler easy and the flight attendants were incredibly helpful and courteous."

Cons: "Movie Selection"
Pros: "I really loved the food they served on the airline, along with the entertainment and the stuardesses. It made for a very enjoyable trip."

Pros: "I was very impressed with the courtesy and efficiency of the pilots and crew. Staff were very helpful and polite. A very good experience overall."
Cons: "The stewardess making announcements overhead on the PA system speak very softly and can be very difficult to hear and understand in addition to their accent. I know the safety cards are available for that info but the "in-flight" announcements are the ones that I worry I'm missing important information due to my misunderstanding."
Pros: "Excellent service overall"

Cons: "I didn't like the way the personnel at the check in counter in Dallas. Hannah didn't seem too helpful. I don't know if she was new but she seemed reluctant to help me when I couldn't find my luggage tags. I told her I wanted a kid's meal for my son but she didn't process the request. He did not get a child meal."
Pros: "Seats are extremely comfortable even in economy. Service was attentive and very gracious. Both meals were above average for airline food. Made a 12 hour flight seem much shorter!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, polite crew, good selection of movies"
Pros: "All was efficient but no standout"
Cons: "Nothing was bad enough to mention this column"
Pros: "Great flight, great staff. The food wasn't bad either."
Pros: "The service Japan Airlines gives is always the best service possible.They treat you like they need you and not the other way around.I will fly with them again."
Cons: "Sorry, my seat really uncomfortable..."
Pros: "Very comfortable, good movie/entertainment choices, great crew"

Pros: "Great service. Great seat."
Cons: "Again not enough to padding in seats"
Pros: "The customer service phone number was impossible to get through on in order to take to someone within 24 hours of my flight in order to make my Special Meals request as I have Celiac's Disease. I was unable to make this selection at booking as when you book through a third party like Expedia, which I did, you cannot access the same internal tools required to make that selection. You can ONLY then call once you have checked in before the flight in order to let the airline know of your Special Meal needs. This is not only a terrible policy as it undercuts those who ARE ultimately still buying tickets to their airline, and that the airline is CHOOSING to sell. It provided me with an extremely subpar experience of the airline but left up to the last minute with doubts about my ability to board a 13 he international flight without the reassurance that I would have ANY meals aboard and no other options should that be the case. Right before my flight departed I was reassured that the information we had requested Expedia relay to the airline internally the day before, who we called when we couldn't get through to the airline, WAS able to convey this Special Meal request and I was going to have food on the flight, so I then did not purchase a bunch of snacks in the airport to have as options. The first meal in, no Special Meal was provided and I had to explain then entire situation all over again. They assured me they would figure it out and get me taken care of. However, no one who assisted me conveyed this to anyone else on the flight and every time food was dispersed, same situation. This was stressful and exhausting and the options provided me were modified to be gluten free, such as an entire plate of fruit for my snack, instead of the protein heavy snack everyone else received, because there truly wasn't extra for that type of dietary restriction. This was stressful and I was very hungry on the flight. One of the attendants got me a few chunks of cheese from first class, but otherwise, it wasn't great. I would advise travelers with Special Meal requests NOT to fly with AirCanada."
Cons: "Check in was just awful. Then a three hour delay and no one was forthcoming."
Pros: "I don’t usually complain, but this was probably my least comfortable flight. Not much that I liked about the flight."
Cons: "Compensation or at least an apology for tv screen and air conditioning not working. The flight was hot and boring."
Cons: "Attendee is very rude."
Pros: "Most of the flight there was strong odor of suer smell"
Cons: "This was a direct flight from DFW to Vancouver. 3.5 hours. Upon arrival in Vancouver we were paged to baggage claim and informed that our bags were taken off the plane and would arrive later in the night. Problem was, we were leaving on a cruise at 4:30PM. Our bags had two cruise luggage tags on each bag. When our bags were delivered to us 2.5 days later in Ketchikan, Alaska - The cruise tags had been torn off our bags. There were a minimum of 8 vacant seats and corresponding luggage not on this plane. I believe Air Canada had a chance to load more cargo and removed our luggage to make more room for the cargo. I will never fly this airline again. I had nothing good to say to anyone on our cruise regarding this airline. Terrible passenger service. The guest services said that 16 bags were delivered in Ketchikan from Air Canada."
Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."
Pros: "The flights went smoothly overall. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The movie selection on the tv was limited."
Pros: "The ease of boarding the plane and the crew wa attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Food was not great, but was edible. Leg room was not as good on the long flight as the shorter connector."
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Lack of in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "I didn't really care for to much, I was just thankful I made it safely!"
Cons: "By far the WORST experience I have ever had flying international as well as the most costly due to flight changes and delays with your airline.I WILL NEVER fly air Canada again!!!!!!"
Pros: "No water in washroom No coffee , Coffee machine do not work Food is for purchase and the whole menu is not available except one item only crew are not friendly No head phones for entertainment I will NOT fly with Air Canada again unless I am forecd to do so"
Pros: "Overall a great experience."
Pros: "crew was very helpful polite nice and welcoming"
Cons: "food was not fresh, hot meal was pretty terrible in both 2 flights"

Pros: "Constant supply of food"
Cons: "No entertainment on seats"
Pros: "Plane was quite comfortable for a smaller model."

Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Dallas due to crew members arrived late."
Pros: "Decent movies."
Cons: "4+ hour flight with, no snacks, lukewarm drinks, out of food items, charged for headphones, crappy sound, unfriendly staff. Flight was NOT cheap. Drop the rates and offer no service; that would be far preferable to what is going on now."
Pros: "Short and easy checkin"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "I liked my seatmates on the flights."
Cons: "I didn't like that we only get one drink and no snacks."
Cons: "when boarding they didn't have a seat assigned for me so I had to wait till everyone was in there seats ! I was not impressed"
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled (still in toronto now) and confusion over the boarding pass made me think it was another 24 hours til we flew out."
Pros: "There was no outstanding feature to mention."
Cons: "The delay, but not a big deal."
Pros: "I was able to change my seat from a middle to a window. I also had an open seat next to me so I was not squeezed in. The person at the desk in Toronto was very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to mechanical issues. Can't be helped, but made for a long day."
Pros: "Good service hassle free"
Pros: "I like the prompt service by Air Csnada ticketing at DFW . I got immediate attention and wheelchair staff was very gentle and friendly. Very smooth process passed TSA."
Cons: "When arriving YYZ, don't mind to be the last passenger to get off, but I was waiting inside the plane for wheelchair about 30 mins after everyone has gone. Perhaps the staff should be managed better the timing. Lucky yyz is my destination, otherwise i would have missed the connecting flight. Waiting for 30 mins is too long. Also the staff stopped for another 10 m in ns to take care of something else. I thought one staff should only take care of one passenger at a time. It showed unprofessional gesture. Btw I didn't get ckeck in email for my return flight to YYZ."
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Cons: "Waiting over 72 hours and my bag has still not arrived. Both planes were delayed, even with the 2nd flight being delayed I still had to run in order to make it. Being on time is not something Air Canada has figured out."
Pros: "I enjoyed the selection of movies that they had."
Cons: "Seats are wildly uncomfortable and cramped. I guess that is what you come to expect from flying, but man does it suck. Longer flights, over 4 hours, should include a complimentary snack. It is a long while to go without food, and paying 5 bucks for a small pack of candy is a bit ridiculous."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth but then the flight was not full"
Cons: "The crew looked bored and surly. They missed giving me my pre ordered meal. When they finally found it it was given without the water bottle. I had to ask for tea twice only to be told that all hot beverages had been poured out."
Pros: "At least we had movies and a book."
Cons: "The checkin staff were not at there designated area on time and the flight was delayed for over an hour causing us to not be able to board our connecting flight from Toronto to Milan."
Pros: "We got in a little early. More room than many in regular economy. All employees encountered pleasant and competent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind other than the normal air travel has led of security."
Cons: "They over sold the flight and we couldn't board the plane."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful, and the flight was uneventful (which is good). Some of the staff went way over and above their function to make up for the chaos."
Cons: "My mother had booked a dairy-free meal and wheelchair assistance. The meal was booked on the flight to London, but the booking didn't carry through to the return. The wheelchair assistance was provided, but there were only three agents booked to manage 12 wheelchair passengers. They tried their hardest, but we still ended up missing our connecting flight. If the crew and agents hadn't been wonderful, it could have been a stressful trip!"
Pros: "Loved the great GPS display."
Pros: "Everything was good, just a small plane... 2 seats on each side of the row and being tall, there just isn't room for my legs!"
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."
Cons: "I booked this particular flight because it was the shortest route available. But the Air Canada flight from Dallas was delayed for an hour and then we experienced computer problems causing further delays. I therefore missed my connection in Toroto and was told by the ground staff I could only get out 2 days later. I was also told there were no hotels available. There were long lines of angry people complaining, and they were from different flights, One couple complained they missed 2 days of their honeymoon. The plane did have seats in business class which they refused to hand out. Eventually they found me a hotel and redirected me through Frankfort the next day. It turned out to be a 27 hour trip. Huge disappointment."
Pros: "Nice aircraft. Good direct flight without the hassle of a layover"
Cons: "Seat comfort not so good. The cabins a bit dated with the seats needing to be tightened."
Cons: "Food was very poor compared to other international flights I've been on. The staff was not very friendly I'm sorry to say!"
Pros: "Movie options were decent. Good was good."
Cons: "More (new release) movie options would be better."
Pros: "Great flight crew, amazing plane, nice food and drinks, entertainment system, and pillows + blankets offered! A+"
Pros: "Service, flight, food"
Cons: "Lost my luggage, two days before it was returned."
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew. They worked really hard with what little they have to work with."
Cons: "Old planes, aisles way too narrow and too long, made drink service take forever!! Dicey for a diabetic, even when I brought my own water on. Food was yuck. Plane smelled, but the bathrooms were stinky! Can't you put up a sign asking men to sit down?! Urine on the floor, as always. Window blinds were sticky. Will never fly Air Canada again if I have any other option!"
Cons: "The flight needed canada transit visa and you guys dint even said me. Moreover when I contacted vayama as my bookings were proceeded by them even they dint helped me and then I had to cancel my ticket. I expect you to refund my money because of your fault I could not board the flight and had a horrible experience"
Cons: "As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result."
Pros: "Leg room was sufficient"
Cons: "Touchscreen monitors were not the best."
