Cons: "I'm tired of Delta making it IMPOSSIBLE to experience benefits of my loyalty. I flew literally AROUND the world in the past 6 months and it STILL doesn't qualify me for anything more than Silver elite? Seriously? When you use a voucher because of their error to lower your ticket price, but still pay cash for it, why does that then automatically exclude you from upgrades? Poor customer loyalty, in fact, non-existent these days."

The manager at the airport hid away until 15 minutes before boarding the late flight when he was due to come out with food vouchers, the catch, you had to leave and go back out through security to use them.

Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing.

Cons: "Hey there good Air Canada folks. I'm a full-time, working, touring musician. I enjoy flying your airline overall, but touring with an acoustic guitar and/or a banjo is constantly stressful. There are clear guidelines about your policies for musical instruments posted on your website, yet your employees never seem to know them. Please have something posted for them at the gates, so I don't have to convince them EVERY TIME that it's okay for me to carry on my instrument in a soft case. A side note: Since airlines started charging for baggage, people are desperate to carry on as much as possible. This means there is always a struggle now against people with a bunch of clothing and personal items in their rolling luggage, to fit the instrument that is my LIVELIHOOD on the plane. Please find a way to make touring with Air Canada easier for musicians. At least return to gate check policies."
