only issue was the flight delayed by 3 hours
The flight got delayed for 4 times while everyone was waiting for hours and hours and finally got cancelled!
There was lots of room on the flight.
We were happy with everything.
Cons: "Seats were very tight compared to other airlines"
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment screen. Would have liked one on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "Exceptional & friendly service."
Cons: "For a 4+ hour flight they may consider offering some free snack & drink."
Cons: "My 5-hour flight was delayed 5 hours. Missed all my scheduled events. I had planned for up to 3 hours of issues (delays, traffic, luggage issues, etc.) and it was still not enough to allow me to make my meeting on time. Additionally, the in-flight entertainment system linked to my seat was defective and only provided sound in one ear."
Pros: "Friendly crew, direct flight to my destination, took extra time to de-ice properly...thank you."
Cons: "No pre check-in with Kayak...annoying! Extremely narrow seats, delay boarding because some people were allowed on before the wheelchair travelers and the aisle got clogged, snarky comments at check in.. “.too many seniors on this flight “ yes, it’s January and it’s going to Florida!"
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Pros: "Had an aisle seat."
Cons: "I thought boarding was more difficult than normal with the gate configuration. Hard to hear announcements."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "except the snow in Canada"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Airplane was old, uncomfortable and no screens"
Pros: "Direct flight - on time departure , arrived early"
Cons: "Grumpy crew, uncomfortable seating - tight & seating comfort poor, attendants came around once for drink & food - didn't return until end of flight"
Pros: "I liked the care, the kindness, and the help"
Pros: "nothing was impressing about Air Canada"
Cons: "Seats was not comfortable."
Cons: "Why have automated checkin and then still have to wait in massively long line to drop off your luggage. Do it like Jet Blue or Virgin or any of the other airlines.......you show up, auto check in, bag tags, separate line for smart efficient people to drop off their bags and get on with it. Its just so inefficient and puts a complete damper on the trip......maybe curbside checkin also."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Cons: "While checking our bags at the counter we were given the wrong boarding pass (someone else's name on both) so we had to go through security twice. The flight was super cold. When I asked for a blanket for my wife, the flight attendant said it was $7."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism and friendliness of the AC information staff inside the gate area,especially when I was offered an earlier flight by almost two hours. The boarding process went smoothly. The flight crew was friendly, accommodating and efficient."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system had ads. Too many."
Pros: "Nothing because ..."
Cons: "It didn't happen. I booked myself on Delta for an am flight at my own expense. I will not fly air Canada again. This was the worst customer service experience I've had in 35 years of flying. I'm a multi millions mile flyer and will fly to Calgary a lot going forward, but not AC"
Pros: "seats felt like they were bare to the metal"
Cons: "Pleasant a/c employees"
Pros: "the seat i chose, on the aisle, was a good one, and the flight stewards were excellent, seeing to the needs of passengers."
Cons: "Old planes,limited food"
Cons: "Seat pitch is non existent, so are free food or drink options. Very uncomfortable seats, glad my flight was only 2.5 hours. Avoid this airline...go Westjet instead."
Pros: "Only 30 minutes late, nice landing."
Cons: "Pitch between seats, filth all over seat back and tray table, mass rush to board when zone three is called, no free snacks, limited drink choices, etc."
Cons: "not even peanuts included on a 6h flight is remarkable"
Pros: "Good food, great entertainment. The extra for economy plus was well worth it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but most of the delay was recovered during the flight."
Cons: "I usually drink 2 or 3 beers on a flight like this. I bought a beer for myself and girlfriend. Beer hot and was told they had no way to keep cold. That's how it comes. 13.50 wasted. Sat there for 3 1/2 hours with nothing to drink. Had nothing on way back. Kind of ruined my flying experience. Have to think about flying air Canada again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were GREAT. The seats are crammed so close together that I had trouble getting my under the seat suitcase wedged in. On other airlines, the suitcase fits very nicely underneath the seat, allowing me to rest my feet on the suitcase. I am on the short side, so having the suitcase to rest my feet really helps. On the flight to Toronto, my daughter had to do it for me. On the return flight, the sweet flight attendant put the bag in and took it out for me. I really appreciated that"
Cons: "I know that all airlines have reduced the seat size and spacing. But it seems like Air Canada is worse than most."
Pros: "Superb experience all around....comfortable, clean, good entertainment, on-time, good food curteous crew!"
Cons: "Nothing- we will definitely travel with you again!"
Pros: "Flight left on close to on time and landed early/ right on time."
Cons: "#1 Boarding was total mayhem. Why do airlines insist on boarding the plane from front to back? Wouldn't it make sense to start at the back and work your way forward? People are NOT able/aware that they need to get out of the wispy and it creates a bottleneck. If the BACK becomes 'zone 1' and you progress forward, boarding passengers are out of the way and boarding can progress smoothly! Worth a try? #2 cart blocked the aisle for 90% of the flight and it was impossible to get to the bathroom. An elderly gentleman had gotten up before service began, and he was stuck out of his seat for close to 45 minutes as the flight attendants wouldn't back up to let him pass. Perhaps the timing of this could be adjusted in the future."
Pros: "The flight attendants tried their hardest to keep issue minimal."
Cons: "The second engine needed for take off had issues so the airline tried to get second engine replaced. Unfortunately the second engine also controlled the air conditioning. We waited through 3 engine replacement tries in the hot Italian summer inside a hot cabin with approximately 150 passengers. Almost an hour later, engine was replaced but damage was done. Many transfer flights had to be rescheduled for later flights. Where was the reimbursement???? Just a million thanks for our patience. Time is money"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Polite staff."
Cons: "Check-in person did not attach priority tag to luggage (business class) until i argued with her. This is the second time Air Canada has done this. We paid a lot extra for this service and should not have to quibble with staff in order to receive it. There was no lounge in Charlottetown, but that's not the airline's fault. However, the Air Canada lounge at Pearson was shabby and poorly outfitted. Shameful."
Cons: "Mine and my wife's legs did not fit. The seats were spaced much closer together than is standard, and this made the flight unbearable. I stood in the isle for most of the flight. To make things worse on this 5 hour flight, there was no video available to distract me."
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "The plane was very old and delayed for too long. Way overpriced air fares."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "Nothing to like or not like. Classic small (Embraer) flight for 3 hours. Nothing special one way or the other."
Pros: "Punctuality. Take off and landing was to schedule, and the return flight was actually 20+ minutes early landing"
Cons: "Extra charges for baggage; no food whatsoever unless you bought it; staged boarding meant that when we finally were allowed on board other passengers had pinched our overhead cabin space, NOT IMPRESSED; no in flight entertainment unless you had downloaded the AC Rouge player in advance; no recharging socket for tablet devices - so you might just see half a movie anyway. If I pay a lot of money for a ticket, even if it's a budget airline, I expect more."
Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed a couple hours, customs was "full" at Pearson causing more delays"
Pros: "short flight with a good seat. fast baggage service"
Pros: "flight was mostly empty so I can go sit somewhere else"
Cons: "I am only 6 feet tall, and my legs do not fit in those seats there is not physically enough room between the back of the seat and the back of the next seat for my legs to fit there"
Pros: "Extra leg room but paid for it."
Cons: "Very turbulent. Entertainment system was okay on iPad but selections were poor, lots of old stuff. Really dislike Rouge."
