Cons: "This review is about Air Canada from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Our flight was cancelled the flight for technical reason, without a notice. We found out when we got to the airport with four children. We were put on a later flight that also left Los Angeles later than the scheduled time. We arrived to Vancouver so late that we could not make the latest BC Ferry to Victoria that left at 9:00 pm. We lost our hotel reservation in Victoria. We were stranded in Vancouver till we could find a hotel that cost us an extra $600 (US dollars), an extra reservation for the ferry and lost a precious half a day of our vacation. When we complained about this wasted time and money Air Canada did not utter not even a clear simple apology. It offered a lousy discount on our next flight with the company, believing that we may ever use such an uncaring company"
Pros: "Decent crew. Decent collection of movies."
Cons: "Overall, this flight service from Montreal for Los Angeles (6 hrs flight) service was worse than the interconnection flight I have experienced in Europe (2 hrs flight). There is no snack provided on this journey and you have to pay for everything (snacks and even the headphones). On the European flights, the snack was provided multiple times for short duration of the flight."
Pros: "Good leg room in coach"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, the boarding process was messed up and could not understand the person doing the announcements (was speaking too fast)..."
Pros: "Great service, staff very pleasant!"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."
Cons: "Only told after tickets purchased, that a visa was needed to change planes in Canada! This information needs to be provided prior to purchase. I paid one-third the cost of the ticket to cancel it and then had to book another ticket closer to departure which was more expensive. Have never heard of such a thing. I live overseas and but had a valid U.S. visa for my travel, but couldn't change planes without applying tor a temporary resident visa which takes longer to obtain than the time before I needed to fly. Very upset and disappointed. Will certainly avoid purchasing from Air Canada again."
Pros: "flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not of good quality, had too much spice and salt. Fruit was a little too hard to cut. Toilets trash was not cleaned from previous flight. She Asian movies were same as in the previous flight. Need to provide more choices on SE Asian movies."
Pros: "North American flights are definitely not as comfortable as in Asian flights"
Pros: "Was offered water frequently :-) at least didn't have to ask or pay for it. Entertainment was offered. Limited choices."
Cons: "There was no announcement for boarding and we found out only when we ASKED personally. Nothing on the board, nothing through speakers. Smaller aircraft for this leg of the journey, not to blame, but seats are old and need refurbishing. They're not torn or anything but not comfortable at all. Restroom very small and uncomfortable like a truck stop. Always a line at the door."
Pros: "All was good as it was not a Rouge plane."
Cons: "Needed a bandaid as got a paper cut but it took forever for the stewardess to get me one.Had to remind her again."
Cons: "From LA to Toronto & Montreal back to LA, was a 4-6 hr flight where they don't feed you or give you blankets. When I asked why blankets are not available, the crew said, "because that's all what we'll be doing is handing out blanket." The crew should realize that providing comfort for their passengers is a huge part of their service they should provide. This was my first time flying with air canada and I was very disappointed. Air Canada will definitely not be on my top airlines to fly next time."
Pros: "Extra care for passengers"
Pros: "Boarded late but quickly."
Cons: "Plane was very old and it showed"
Pros: "The flight was as expected. Nothing bad, nothing outstanding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, and boarding took forever. Why don't people's "carryons" get checked to see if they actually fit? Why are they not held to the stated rules for size, quantity and weight? It would make everything much faster. If you can't lift your luggage into the overhead bin, it probably should be checked."
Pros: "Nothing fantastic but it was a good flight even after being delayed a while. Our plane had something wrong so they took us off the plane and we had to wait until they found a new plane for us, thank goodness we were in Canada at the hub where there must've been extra planes."
Cons: "I could not understand one word the stewardess said. I'm not sure if it was an accent thing or a speak too fast too close to the microphone thing but had it been an important message I wouldn't have made it. The music on the entertainment"
Pros: "nice crew"
Pros: "There was a decent selection of in flight movies"
Cons: "-the aux plug for the headphones wasn't working properly. Resulting in me having to hold the headphones in place the entire flight -the first time the attendant went by with the food selections for purchase she walked right past me and went on to run out of food by the time I finally got her attention. -I had to ask the people behind me several times to please stop their child from kicking the back of my seat. Although the attendant made eye contact me one of the times she made no intervention on my behalf. - my return flight was in short: neglectful and arduous. I probably wouldn't recommend Air Canada after a flight like that."
Cons: "Our family of 3 was split up and couldn't sit together and there wasn't much help trying to help our situation. No snacks? Not even pretzels?? First time I have seen that."
Pros: "The staff at Toronto were very professional"
Cons: "We have not received our luggage. We have been told it was given to transportation company and nothing yet. Called back and told company did not have drivers to deliver! We were assured luggage would be with us on the next day flight after being put up by airline."
Pros: "Arriving and getting off the plane."
Cons: "They boarded and the moment everyone was seated, de-borded to change planes, resulting in a 2 hour delay. The crew was inattentive taking and delivering drink orders, which took an astounding length of time after payment, about 1 hour."
Cons: "Everything. I called air canada for three days straight and the lines are busy. I waited for over an hour and thirty minutes to speak to someone at their terminal and they couldn't help. Everything is delayed, they don't care about their customers. I would never fly again!"
Pros: "Stewardess were kind and helpful."
Cons: "Ug the food - Pizza, sushi were awful - hard & tasteless. They were out of cheese and crackers and salad by the time they got to us."
Pros: "On time. Clean. Efficient"
Pros: "Staff were great"
Cons: "Air conditioning malfunctioning until the plane took off meant that the cabin was extremely hot and humid. My headphone jack didn't work so I couldn't even watch a movie. Otherwise everything was fine"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "Plane sat on Tarmac for 45 mins Flight attendant was busy chatting personal matters non-stop and was loud, when passengers were totally annoyed from waiting 45 mins to deplane"
Cons: "Flight was over two hour late. Customer service did nothing to help. Suggested I figure out my connection in Los Angeles. Get on the plane and the entertainment system not working. No one willing to help. Land in Los Angeles and had to wait 20 minutes for a gate. So not only did I miss my connection flight, I have to wait until tomorrow to see if I can get on a flight"
Pros: "Good movie selections and a personal screen as opposed to needing to use a personal device."
Cons: "It was much warmer in the middle of the plane than towards the front of the plane. I had requested the assistance of the crew several times by pushing the button [which lit up the light above my seat] but there was never a response. Only when they passed by my seat would I be able to get their attention by flagging them down. My seat was broken and trouble shooting was not an option for the crew."
Pros: "No food service from Toronto to LA. And when I asked for item to purchase, it was not available."
Cons: "No food service - only purchase"
Pros: "More leg-room."
Cons: "Stewardesses were not as friendly or interactive with passengers; quite cold."
Pros: "Safe and on time. I liked the opportunity to check in my carry on luggage."
Cons: "TV's did not work and the flight attendant bumped into me every time she walked down the aisle. Earphone plugs did not function properly. Outlet to charge my phone was missing."
Pros: "We were delayed for 2+ hours. Not sure why. Thankfully I was sleep deprived and slept the entire way so it didn't bother me as much."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi onboard is silly."
Pros: "I liked coming back home on time as scheduled."
Cons: "My flight to Vancouver was delayed and i was not even notified by email or any means. I arrived there very late and it cost me money when I had planned to take the train which was no longer running when I got there!"
Pros: "Loved the movies and fairly comfortable seat with good legroom."
Cons: "I wish there were movies available to watch or purchase to watch. It was a 3 hour flight and I feel at that length of a flight a movie would help to pass the time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat, bad entertainment."
Pros: "crew was polite"
Cons: "when i bought the tickets we weren't told that the baggage and food wasn't included and I had to pay for it (US$100 or the baggagge alone) we were changed to a different craft and could't choose my seats in thiis craft they seat us all separated, when i had already chosen our sits in the former craft they didn't sit us together when we asked for it at the counter we were 1.5 hours waiting inside the airplane , so i lost my bus to Santa Barbara we weren't given any snack for the delay"
Cons: "Extremely tight space."
Pros: "Why did we have to pay for head phones?? No included food what so ever!! Not even peanuts or a cookie. Why try to make me buy everything after I paid a full price?? The seats were crowded, every person walking in the aisle brushed against my shoulder. Air Canada, never again"
Pros: "Tv screens. On time arrival even though we left late. Not Stingy on beverages."
Cons: "Ineffecient boarding process. Walk to ticket counter from parking was a distance Walk from ticket counter to checked in luggage drop off was ridiculously long Seperated my wife and kids and myself on the plane even though we booked together. I had to ask people to switch seats with us on the flight. Refused to help with this. Money making ploy. Not classy or respectful. I don't care if we don't get to pick out seats but at least set us up together."
Pros: "No entertainment beyond ipod rental..."
Cons: "Not enough time (1 hr.) for connection in Calgary... very stressful in USA Customs line and subsequent USA security line... baggage did not make flight and still not received in 38 hours... difficult start to vacation."
Pros: "No leg room. Very stiff seats"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "Linda was quite rude and aggressive. She would often hush me with her finger or ignore me when I would talk to her. It made me reconsider flying with air Canada"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything extra."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment so I really can't rate either of those things"
Cons: "flight was late to arrive. waited 15 mins to talk to gate attendant and about the connecting flight. was told it was ok. when we arrived had less then 20 mins to run from terminal 7 to 2 and go thru security all over again. no one at the gate to help direct."
Pros: "we boarded on time, and the flight was uneventful. David's Tea is now avaialble for purchase. great price and although small good selection."
Cons: "All items are now up for purchase- except for soft drinks and juice."
Pros: "Seats was ok not very comfortable . They don’t understand English . Before food served there is announcement for apologies for not choice. I ask her about food , what is this she said I don’t know. They don’t know what they are serving. It taste was horrible. That was the desert with food."
Cons: "They have to learn English and serve the better quality of food."
Cons: "Comfort was not rated as high because space between me and seat in front of me was extremely tight and I'm not a big person. Otherwise flight was good, food better than expected and actually pretty good and entertainment had plenty of options"
Cons: "I missed my flight and had to pay more money to book another flight. I read the time wrong, it was in military time and I missed my flight"
Pros: "This connection has been changed and it was too early for my flight, it got changed and i was told I don't hv a connecting flight.. ca7265"
Cons: "This connection has been changed and it was too early for my flight, it got changed and i was told I don't hv a connecting flight.. ca7265"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Had electrical outlet between seats on one of my international flights (not the return flight). Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats felt close together. Crew doesn't really return smiles. Food wasn't great. English movies that weren't "B" level were few on my first flight, better on my return flight. Not much refreshment in the 7 or so hours between meals. Did not have electrical outlets between seats on one of my international flights. English translations of announcements were difficult to understand."
Pros: "The flight crew’s polite attitude was the only redeeming quality."
Cons: "They kept telling us before the inflight meal that there may not be enough food. And “sorry”. Luckily there was enough for my partner and I, but it was unsettling. Most importantly we found our luggage ransacked when we arrived at our destination. There were zip ties wrapped around both our suitcases that were cutting into the fabric. When we opened our luggage we found numerous items missing and broken. We will be filling a complaint with the airline as well as a claim with travel insurance. Finally, I will do my best to avoid connecting through Beijing airport. Most restaurants didn’t start serving food until 11:30am and our next flight boarded at that time. We arrived at 6am and we were starving. So our only real option was soup."
Pros: "Food, especially the hot entrees and the salmon salad and the matcha cake"
Cons: "I repeatedly asked for upgrade options, was told 1) Gimpo airport can't process upgrades 2) wait until cabin door closed 3) flight is too full, no seats available when I could see an entire business class section empty. Was charged $110 to check an extra bag. Only one bag of three received upon landing. Airline staff was completely unapologetic and disingenuous, saying my bags would arrive on the next flight at 11 (there was no flight arriving at 11) and then treating me like I was inconveniencing them by needing to leave the airport two hours after my flight landed instead of continuing to wait indefinitely for my bags."
Pros: "Flights ran on time. Fares were very low."
Cons: "Service was minimal. No way to get help at the gate. Minimal service on board. Beverage service twice on a 13 hour flight. No snacks. Terrible food. Limited choices on entertainment system."
Cons: "No updates on reason for 2hr delay of flight."
Pros: "Good flight, clean, good service and great price"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians is not that great. Carry your own food. English is definitely a problem for the crew but everything is manageable."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Pros: "Business class section very good and clean. Cabin crew very attentive. Good value for a business class flight."
Cons: "Being a Chinese airline, it lacks the variety of US inflight entertainment choices compared to an airline such as Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "this long flight was made much more difficult by the 10 hour layover in cold airport 11F outside while we had no cold weather clothes (since we were in 90F Thailand previous). We should have had short layover but flight got cancelled and terrible rebooking had us waiting 10 hours in middle of our trip at Beijing. The food on the flight was poor and the crew never came around to offer water."
Pros: "people work in PEK is very helpful, but delay is way too much to handle."
Cons: "miss flight, miss flight, miss flight"
Pros: "Having an empty seat between myself and the other passenger. There was also a plug between each seat to charge devices."
Cons: "We couldn’t use any devices and had to rely on in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Trip was comfortable Ticket prices excellent"
Cons: "Air china is thinking about Asian people only, but not others..food just for Asian, what's about others? Nothing for me, I was so hungry for all trip because I didn't like that food that gave to me, and no choice. That's shame.. air china should have to announce that only Asian can travel with them so we can understand better.."
Cons: "First time flying Air China - it was cheap and I mistaken it for China Airlines. Newer seats with touch screen TV, but the seating, screen and tray table were dirty and not properly wiped down. Lack of entertainment - no new movies, just a bunch of old released. Food was ok, minimal drink options. At time very difficult to understand crew members. It was the cheapest flight, and now I know why. The flight back to the US was significantly better than the flight from LAX to Beijing. That flight there was in an old Boeing with old dirty uncomfortable seats that I had to first drape with a blanket before sitting down and extremely dirty tray area that I scrubbed down with some wet wipes myself. The only saving grace was that it was an empty flight and I had the entire row to myself. Worst, we had a 7-hour delay in Beijing where the ground members did not speak English and could not give anyone an explanation as to why there was a delay. My family in Thailand came to the airport twice because they went back home the first time since they were waiting for too long and the airline could not give them an estimate of when the flight would take off. Never flying Air China again. Would recommend spending more a little more and fly EVA air or something else."
Cons: "The food options"
Pros: "I enjoyed my journey from L.A. to Beijing. I haven't traveled in a while but it was fun. Thank you Air China for getting up and back safely."
Cons: "See the above comment regarding the music and television selections."
Pros: "Was worried about losing my luggage originally but everything turned out fine."
Pros: "The air crew (in the airplane flying) were really good. Good food."
Cons: "The ticketing agents in San Francisco were very rude in the check in process. No online check in or Kiosks so you have to talk to a rude person. Then the same people go board the plane which started to board at the same time it is supposed to leave (its a 747 so there is a lot of people it is not a 10 min board) this makes it very difficult if you have a connecting flight. Every flight that I took with them (4 total) left late and my luggage did not arrive in LA on my way back to the USA. Their baggage office was not helpful and when I tried to call them over the next several days they never answered or responded to messages left on the machine or via email. The in flight is good on the ground it is terrible."
Pros: "Movie selection was okay, could have been better but there was enough to make a 12 hour flight passable."
Cons: "Traveling from Bangkok we were required to go through security twice more at Beijing from some reason, and then again prior to boarding our carry-ons were checked again and all water/liquids taken from us. This became a problem because after the initial meal and drink service there was no service for more than six hours. For at 12 hour flight only two meals were offered. The flight attendants were scarce and unwilling to help people, even closing the curtains to their work areas. My girlfriend is on medication and shouldn't become dehydrated so I was forced to "acquire" a bottle of water from the service area when the attendant left. The food was atrocious, far worse than when we flew from San Francisco to Beijing for some reason. I believe the crew was understaffed and tired. Overall it was extremely disappointing and I will do my best never to fly with them again, or through Beijing airport."
Pros: "Flight went very smoothly"
Cons: "Loved that I was able to pick up where I left off on my in flight movie when I transferred planes. The flight went well!"
Cons: "Rude rude rude!!!"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and always on top of things. The food was also excellent and I appreciate how often thet provided water."
Cons: "The seats were cramped to the point where it was awfully hard for me to sit properly. The entertainment touch screens also froze quite often."
Cons: "Departure delay of more than an hour due to air traffic. Prolonged sitting was not good for circulation of blood."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were courteous and bilingual. They served two dinners and offered complimentary beverages, even beer and wine at no extra cost. There was also a complimentary blanket, pillow and headsets in every seat. Also great movie selections."
Cons: "On the returning flight guy from Beijing to LA my headphones only worked on one side. There was no way to fix it."
Pros: "New plane, 2 good meals and beverages. Flight staff friendly and helpf"
Cons: "The crying baby seating behind us for 12 hours"
Cons: "Had to take a shuttle to get to the plane. Beijing international airport is too busy."
Pros: "The only good thing was punctual arrival of flights to all the destinations."
Cons: "Boarding: bad, I couldn't check-in online because of some error which apparently only I faced. I still don't know the reason Customer care: horrible, either there are no reps with Air China or they just don't pick their phones. Tried calling them on various occasions for various things but wasn't answered even once (except for booking the meals). Baggage care: irresponsible, my luggage couldn't be loaded on time despite a good 3 hour layover at Beijing airport. I stood at the baggage belt for a good 45 mins (on the edge of crying) before the person responsible to inform me that my luggage hasn't arrived yet showed up. After that as well, I wasn't given a file reference number through which I could track my luggage. Also, nobody picks the phone at baggage claim office unless you call repeatedly for 50 times. What's with the distance between their phones and reps? Inflight crew: impolite, just one word for them. Food: boiled veggies for Hindu vegetarian meals, I mean I wouldn't place a special request for a meal like this. Seats: uncomfortable, the small monitor hangs so frequently that you give up watching even your favourite movie inside a boring flight."
Pros: "There were nobody to help me with my flight."
Cons: "The price."
Cons: "Food a bit blah, entertainment a bit sparse. But hey, it was cheap!"
Cons: "Worst experience ever... All of my negative feedback applies to this entire airline and trip to/from. Air China is not even worth my time anymore... So will not go in to much detail. They treated us like dirt... Will never fly with them again... And to be perfectly honest, will likely never book through kayak again. This was my first time booking with kayak and will probably be my last as this experience was beyond terrible"
Pros: "There was nothing special about the flight"
Cons: "It was late taking off from Beijing and the ground crew did not inform the passengers what was going on. The food was mediocre, there was no breakfast and the video/monitor attached to my seat did not work!!!!"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Rude crew, unprofessuonally managed company, lost luggage"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Crews were oddly rude. It felt as if it was normal, not personal"
Cons: "Transit, boarding, service..."
Pros: "Choice of movies was decent."
Cons: "Food for vegetariansw as disgraceful. To the flight crew - please know basic English if you're serving a flight going to the US. And it would be nice if you weren't so racist towards Indians....just sayin'."
Cons: "There were no sign where the gate was located.. when asked no one was able to help..."
Pros: "The boeing 747 was a great plane with lots of entertainment options for the long 13 hour flight back to the US. The boarding was efficient and the plane left on time."
Cons: "The food was better compared to other Air China flights I have taken but it is still not delicious compared to other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was attentive, professional and well mannered. *I would use this airline again if it meant saving $500-$600 dollars...just pack your lunch!"
Cons: "The food was the worst that I have ever had in a flight. Absolutely terrible. My husband and I travel 2-4 times a year so we have quite a bit of experience. I only a piece of bread and some watermelon in a 12.5 hour flight. The cabin crew, although very polite, did not have control of the passengers who were not sitting when required, pulling their bags out of the overhead compartments when getting ready to land and customers helping themselves in the flight attendant alcove. You are not allowed to use your cell phone at all during the flight and are not permitted to bring any liquids on the plane even after you clear customs and security. They inspect your bags before boarding AGAIN!"
Pros: "Cabin crew, seat comfort, cabin cleanliness were all excellent in business class."
Cons: "Food quality was poor. Available snacks between meal service were limited to fruit, candy, and dehydrated noodle soup. Only instant coffee, no brewed coffee was available. Luggage was prompt to arrive on the carousel, but despite the priority tag on my bag, hundreds of non-priority tagged bags were delivered before mine. Beijing business class lounge offered very low quality and extremely limited food."
Pros: "The price was only reason we took this"
Cons: "Broken bathroom , limited food, no snack when requests . Attitude on the staff and entertainment system always freezes or no sound , poor good quality , hard chairs"
Pros: "Staff was professional!"
Cons: "The smoked salmon was spoiled in the salad!"
Pros: "Crews are all polite and attentive."
Cons: "The guys that pushed our wheelchair refused $5 tip for each. They want double. We gave $10 each. My husband is disabled and i got heart issues. No more wheelchair at time of boarding. We walked slowly from Gate 30-gate 51. Then we have to climb the stairs of the aircraft. Almost had heart attack."
Pros: "Leg room was pretty good Decent movies selection"
Cons: "Could be cleaner in bathrooms Chinese rules - no phone even in airplane mode any time Announcement in "English" incomprehensible with accent Once came to a wet seat for some reason (they washed it?) and they just gave me a towel to sit on and is all"
