Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Slightly delayed"
Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you I had to change 3 months ago. I won’t use kayak again."
Cons: "Siting at exit row gave more legroom thus more comfortable and more sleep. Disadvantage is that apurar must be stowed in bin overhead which is not within reach. It’s a bit of inconvenient and feeling insecure for important papers and $ inside."

Cons: "Better Seats"
Cons: "Did not like emergency exit seat."
Cons: "Lousy food taste bland out of date movies"
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane.

Thank You !!"

Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"
Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."
Pros: "The crew is so polite and attentive. Snacks are free, generous, and tasty. Food is pretty good for airplane food. Interior was very clean and kept clean during the flight."
Cons: "I suppose the food could be better."
Pros: "Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable planes. On time flights."
Cons: "I accidentally left an external battery in my check in bag and they stopped me to open my bag and remove it as I was boarding. This is obviously my fault but I wish they had called me up earlier to not disrupt the other passagers and slow the boarding process."
Pros: "The service from this airline is so great. Everyone is smiling and treats you like a valued guest."
Cons: "Obviously you will not get the best food on an airplane. The food is enough to keep you alive, but is not going to earn michelín stars."

Pros: "La puntualidad absoluta, la amabilidad de la tripulación y los baños impecables durante las 13 hr de vuelo."

Cons: "I asked to move my seat to an aisle seat in order to not disrupt a neighbor when needing to use the washroom and was kindly given another seat by the flight attendant but then was later asked to move back to my center seat. Having me move around caused confusion and made a ackward situation for me."
Pros: "Cabin crew was fine, nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Check in / gate crew would not help rearrange seats so my son and I could sit together. Just disappointed all they said that it was a full flight so they could not rearrange a couple of seats to allow us to sit together. This would never happen if it was a flight originating in Japan."

Cons: "Both meal A and B selections would have caused problems for people with shellfish allergies. One was a seafood doria so they have me the other meal. The other had a sauce with seafood extract in the ingredients. I can read Japanese so didn't eat it, but there wasn't any English information on it."
Cons: "The flight attendent name Yoka asked me what I want to eat??? But She give my food to someone else, and rold me they do not have it anymore."
Pros: "Excellent crew, comfortable seat, good food"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight attendants. The food were decent. The snacks through the flight were very good."

Pros: "Good guidance"
Cons: "There's no boarding zone?"
Pros: "Great assistance to elderly"
Pros: "Crew did the best with what they had"
Cons: "Four hour delays with little to no updates along the way are inexcusable"
Pros: "The crew that greeted us (and sorted out seats) was excellent."
Cons: "We had booked seats together two months before our trip; when we checked in (both legs are Star Alliance, but Air Canada—one leg both directions—did not allow any on-line seat choice or changes), we had been separated to different rows altogether (and since it took two Air Canada trips to get from Vancouver to Denver; the first had mechanical difficulties an hour into the trip and had to return), and there was no way to change it online or at the airport."
Pros: "Space on airplanes are getting smaller and smaller , not more comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work, frustrating."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and tight. Leg room is not existent."
Pros: "The gate agents were polite and the boarding was relatively smooth. Food was fine and flight attendants were Excellent!!!"
Cons: "First point of contact was incredibly rude. First she told me she couldn't find my reservation. Once she did, she gave me a lecture about my married name. Next she refused to let me take my carry on bag saying it was too large even though it fit on all flights to Montreal. Once I proved it would fit with the luggage sizer she had moved on to another customer and ignored me for 10 minutes while I stood there even though my boarding passes were printed. When I got to the flight, I found it could have been gate checked but there was no need as the flight was NOT FULL and my bag fit with no problem at all in the overhead bins. In 35 years of flying this was the worst experience I've ever had."
Cons: "Air Canada did everything wrong except for the actual flying of planes. Repeated delays and cancellations with NO organization or communication to the passengers. I made it to my final destination 24 hours later than original itinerary, almost all of which was spent in airport lines. My bag didn't arrive until 5 days later...on the wrong porch."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Dallas due to crew members arrived late."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was small, seats not very comfortable, entertainment system was down. After traveling 24 hours it was not pleasant. Additionally, coming from Vancouver on a late arrival, no one helped expedite me to the flight. I had to leave International, clear immigration and Customs, then enter immigration and US Customs. When I told anyone I was possibly missing my next flight it was met with a shrug, as if it was just my problem. Not a good way to treat customers."
Cons: "Going through 6 stages of security!!!! I understand to be safe, but good grief! I bought a bottle of liquor in the duty free at the Budapest airport thinking doing it this way I would not get harassed. Wrong!!! They freaked out and held us up even longer! We almost missed our last flight because of all the security steps we had to go through!!! And so did many other people. It's a ridiculous system, it should all be done at once with only having to stay in the long line ONCE! And to scan our own passports and waiting to see our name on some board to be able to leave that particular room just to be met with even longer lines afterwards is insane. I am not a tech savvy person, as I am sure a lot of others are not either, and I got barely any help to show me how the heck to do all of that! Unacceptable!! And to top everything off, an item was stolen out of my daughter's suitcase somewhere along the way!! Replacing it cost me about $40!!!"
Cons: "Screaming kids right behind me for 3 1/2 of the 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding, flight on time, nice crew."
Cons: "The only thing they serve is water. Still or sparkling. And chocolate bar. Anything else is paid. It's not low fare airline and this should not be happening."
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "my flight was late leaving midland and therefore I missed my flight from houston to toronto NO one at the Houston United airport counters would help me I stood in line at customer service for an hour and a half just so they could tell me to go see some one at the Air Canada to confirm my rebook and that my flight was delayed an hour anyway and I probably could have made it!!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight left really late, which meant that we had to rush to the next terminal when we arrived in Chicago for the transfer flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "That I was able to play it on my phone"
Cons: "Flight attendants passed by me without asking if I would like to buy lunch and when she finally she came by they didn't have anything else"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding is horrible. Fees for taking bags cause everyone to carry-on and with too much on board an everyone has to wait while they transfer excess bags to beneath the plane. Food is poor. seats are cramped."
Pros: "Online booking,boardong pass, alerts"
Pros: "II was disappointed with the food. Last May when I used AC it was much better, even edible. I left my IPad on the flight and it was not only retrieved and properly identified but was delivered to me on my connecting flight. Most grateful."
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "It was uncomfortably hot onboard for the entire flight. I couldn't wait to deplane and cool down."
Pros: "Good legroom in economy"
Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."
Pros: "-Staff was friendly and helpful. -The food is pretty good, and comes frequently enough -Cheap! -The flight was delayed, but at least Air Canada automatically rescheduled my next flight for me (which also ended up being delayed, but I'm happy this issue was resolved well before going through customs with a ticket for an airplane which had already begun boarding/departed)."
Cons: "-Air Canada baggage drop only open after 1pm -The aircraft was delayed, forcing my next flight from Toronto to have to be rescheduled. That flight was also delayed, so although I was supposed to be in Boston at 7:25, I arrived at around 11:25. All that extra time was spent waiting at Narita and Toronto. -Although I was seated next to a bathroom, I was at a window seat and thus had no good access to it for the whole 12 hour flight -- most of the time the way out was blocked by tray tables. Overall space was somewhat limited."
Pros: "Once again great airline!!"
Cons: "Food is meh at best but is reasonably price for quality"
Pros: "On time and short! Everything was good"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."
Pros: "I liked the service. I dont like flying much but the stewdardes made me feel comfortable so it was a good flight"
Pros: "It was on-time, left enough time to reach connections and my bag arrived."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed boarding in NYC but it wasn't a long delay and we left on time."
Pros: "all went well -timely flight, smooth, courteous and efficient staff."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about my flight to Dublin was the fact that we arrived in the correct city."
Cons: "Once again I found the air Canada staff unaccommodating, un-attentive and basically indifferent to the aircraft's guest. In addition I tried 4 electrical outlets on the aircraft before finding one that worked and the reading lights never did work. I would never recommend this airline."
Pros: "Entertainment system might have been nice if the earphone plug worked."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat of all time because it was broken but the flight attendant didn't care."
Pros: "We eventually got here...6 hours late"
Cons: "Bottom line is that they appear to NOT service their planes well and Captain made poor decisions. Only flight on the board listed as "delayed" on a sunny cloudless day in Orlando. Never a raindrop and instead of leaving at noon, we left at six. 1. Took them 45 minutes to change a tire on the nose. 2. According to captain " a strange item was beside his cockpit seat and that took an hour. I assume he didn't recognize his empty Oreo box. How do you allow someone to drop a strange box in the cockpit. 3. Taxi out and a switch won't work. Sit there for 45 minutes. "We were able to reset it." Go 100 yards. Stop. "Need to do another reset." Doesn't work. Takes corporate 30 minutes to decide what to do. Return to terminal for maintenance on phantom problem. 4. Sit at terminal for a couple hours. No one allowed off. Beverages are all warm. Crew serves warm water and crappy sugar-bomb pretzels. Passengers get sick. Won't let anyone off. 5. Finally gets in the air. Crew has nothing but snacks; no real food. Beverages are warm. 6. EVERYONE misses connections."
Pros: "The flight is not packed, so rather comfortable"
Pros: "This flight was okay since United Airlines operated it for Air Canada."
Cons: "You had to pay to watch movies."
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "Seat where very roomy. Service was amazing.."
Cons: "There was a mess inside terminal 1 April 25 at 8pm when we arrived perhaps the pilot could have gave us heads up. Very confused as to what was going on."
Cons: "Left very late, bumpy ride and bathroom was broken."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Assigned a seat that did not recline, no onboard entretainment, tiny snack. The flight was operated by United. The wifi did not work so no movies."
Pros: "Very organized ,clean planes"
Pros: "Despite the original delay with the flight boarding staff was efficient at getting us on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "The second part, from Toronto to Houston was the pitts. First of all they called me to the gate way before the boarding time and so I was a bit worried but when i got there there was nothing, they just confirmed I arrived from Montreal. This was strange and so I got a bit stressed as to why they had a called me and made me rush in the first place. Anyway, minor compared to the rest of the experience. The flight boarding was late, then an unscheduled stop in memphis for extra gas, then a tech problem that needed maintenance kept on on the ground. We finally made it to our destination 2 hours late. Most fellow passengers missed connecting flights and because we got out of the airport after midnight needed to get a cab to our accommodations. While I appreciate the attention to safety (and the curteous crew who obviously felt bad and were taking a lot of shit) we what was supposed to be a 3 hour flight ended up being 5 and there were no meals for sale,very limited snacks. We got one complimentary ,half can of juice and a bag of tiny bag spicy trail mix (labelled ranch) that i could not eat. After the delays we got an extra glass of complimentary cranberry juice. Which was amazing, but really did not cut it (from 5:15- midnight). By the end I was uncomfortable and starving! This was a radically disappointing experience in compared to the Ari Canada portion of the trip."
Pros: "Great food and overall service for premium economy. Seats were more comfortable than economy I've had in the past."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment computers are extremely laggy compared to modern tablets. Air Canada should make friends with the Google and Apple's of the world. Should try to include more episodes of the tv shows rather than just a select few episodes."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Very poor service. Staff a little weird and not helpfull at all."
