Cons: "Entertainment screen in my seat didn’t work. Old plane."
Cons: "My flight was late arriving in Toronto no fault of mine then the aircanada security took over an hour to get through then they had been paging me and were rude when I finally made it to the plane again not my fault. Did not deserve the attitude!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 14 hour. No one at the gate to inform on transit passengers. Air Canada office were couldn’t care less. I booked Lufthansa flight and Air Canada was very unfortunate partner. Would never recommend Air Canada and wouldn’t use them by choice"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful on a very full airplane. They did their best to check on connections to let us know if we were going to miss our flights or not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly an hour causing a very tight connection in Calgary."
Pros: "Took off early; landed early. Helpful crew and a good amount of food and beverages were served."
Cons: "AC was late causing a missed connection to YXE. They were unable to rebook us to Saskatoon for two or three days! They offered standby or Edmonton as our only options. We flew to Edmontonand then drove 6 hours in order to get home for work with no sleep. Unimpressed."
Pros: "I liked everything. The crew was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"
Pros: "Reasonable food"
Cons: "One suitcase did not arrive. Not sure when will arrive"
Pros: "That we arrived in Toronto and got to get off the plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours. The rows are way too close together to be remotely comfortable, and the seats themselves are tiny and barely recline. Being 5 months pregnant, I was uncomfortable the entire flight. The "entertainment" that you have to download an app for didn't work, and particularly stung knowing how much we paid for the flights, and that other airlines simply put a TV on the back of each seat that is easy to connect headphones and view. The food on our previous flight had been so terrible we didn't bother on this trip, but it looked equally awful. My husband was in the aisle seat and the flight attendant repeatedly and without warning hit him with the cart. The flight attendants varied in level of friendliness, but the ones in our row rushed through service, and did not give us the options the other row had (ice in drinks, veggie or meat options). All in all, it was kind of a terrible flight experience."
Pros: "The flight crew, the price and the bags arrived."
Cons: "While the flight crew was great, the rest of the employees on the Toronto side were awful. Our plane was delayed from Dublin so most of the plane missed their connecting flight. Once off the plane they only had 2 people working rebooking and 2 working bag issues even though there was plenty employees around. After an incredibly long line, the gate agent was very rude. He barely acknowledged me, wouldn't look at me and just shoved my new ticket at me and said next. I tried to talk to another while waiting an extra 4hrs for my next flight and all she did was shove a business card with numbers and said if I had a problem to call one of those numbers and then rolled her eyes and started talking to her friends again. I saw another couple from my flight being passed around and getting rude treatment as well. Another I talked to said they will never fly Air Canada again. I know it wasn't their fault our flight was late but a little compassion and good customer service goes a long way. I had to spend $15 on dinner that I wouldn't if I had made my flight but they gave another couple from my flight $10 vouchers for food. So inconsistent! I also paid $100 extra on my ticket to sit closer to the front of the plane since I knew I had a short layover (which didn't make a difference) but they just gave the same seat to the girl next to me for the same reason. When I asked for a refund on the seat cost they just blew me off. To sum it up, the flight crew was great and very friendly but all the ground employees were awful and really need to improve on their customer service skills."
Pros: "the app so you can choose your own movies"
Cons: "very crowded. snacks werent very good or healthy"
Pros: "Constant supply of food"
Cons: "No entertainment on seats"
Cons: "Poor airflow on plane."
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Empty seat between us"
Cons: "No movies. Had to load app for entertainment. Then WiFi never worked"
Cons: "No entertainment and poor seat selection process"
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flights"
Cons: "limited leg room"
Pros: "Nothing because it didn't happen"
Cons: "When I got to the airport, the attendant notified me that my flight had been exchanged. No one notified me of this and I was still under the impression that my flight was scheduled as my itenerary in my latest email. It took two hours to figure out that United had changed my flight and booked me on a different one. Once again, without notifying me. Thank god they changed my flight to a later one or I would have missed it. By the time we figured out what flight I was on, I had to sprint to a different terminal because check in was closing in 20 mins. I arrived at the check in kiosk with less than 5 mins to spare. The experience was terrible and customer service from each Kayak, United and Air Canada. I also injured my back while sprinting between terminals wearing a heavy backpacking backpack. Would not book through Kayak again."
Pros: "Seats were ok but a bit cold all the way."
Cons: "One hour late leaving, no reason or information given. Food was awful with green sauce on chicken and celery bits in milk for salad, the connecting flight was cancelled and the option was another flight in two days. The only flight going later that evening was full and the next day was full also they said. An hour later a bus service was offered leaving in ten minutes which many of us raced to catch on our own with no one to show us how to get to the bus. The bus we were told to look for was the wrong bus. Of course our luggage didn't make it and that took another hour to register at our destination as every one else on the bus didn't get their luggage either. Bus driver got lost but passengers were able to show him the way. This is the third time in four flights Air Canada has lost our luggage. The worst was the NO ONE ever smiles, we were watching for it, and certainly NO ONE ever says we are sorry you are inconvenienced which would go a long way to make the delays and changes more tolerable."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old, without entertainment. Most of the crew were unenthusiastic. The food was less then average. A very different experience then flying from Toronto to London the week before, so quite disappointing."
Pros: "Good flight overall - the Air Canada Rouge entertainment was not bad, but didn't work on one of our phones and I couldn't get it to work on my tablet (driver wouldn't load - and couldn't check for driver til we got on plane, so that was frustrating). No issues with the other phones and my ipad. Food was good."
Cons: "Took off too late and missed next flight"
Pros: "I liked the vegetarian options for food."
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 and a half hours early, and thank goodness: check in took forever and they obviously didn't have enough staff, and never fixed that. Had to rush through everything else. Crew was unhelpful for those of worried about missing our connecting flights since the plane was late: those on board said they had no way to know and to ask the gate agent when we landed, the gate agent scoffed at us saying they had no way to know. I've been on flights where the crew kindly gave out connection information, so this is lazy on Air Canada's part."
Pros: "Planes were clean, relatively comfortable & flight attendants were polite. Flights that had individual screens on the seatbacks offered good movie choices."
Cons: "Ugh. Delays of 1-2hrs each on 3 of 4 flights for one trip. Missed connecting flight in Toronto. Baggage was a disaster. No communication between staff, was told something different by each person I spoke with. Flew to London & didn't get my bag for 3 days. Flight delays put me in to London a day late, wearing same clothes without access to my bag & lost 4 more hours of site-seeing time following day calling the airline & trying to meet up with courier delivering my bag. Then on my 7hr midday flight back to the states our plane had no screens at all for in flight entertainment. Security and Customs check process was ridiculously long. Waiting in line after line, and the automated kiosks processing passports were fickle delaying lines & leading to further follow up by staff. Very confusing and overheard several passengers talking about missing connecting flights. I highly recommend not flying Air Canada until they become more organized."
Pros: "organized crew & good service"
Cons: "there was no check in luggage with the ticket, I have to pay for both my check in luggage while flying back from Toronto to Saskatoon. Atleast one check in luggage should be there."
Pros: "The Dublin Airport has a great security system. Very smooth, easy and helpful staff at every point"
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for a very long time, causing us to miss our next flight. This is not an Air Canada issue. The system in Toronto required another trip through security, lines and lines and lines. Technology that no one understood - very little guidance from Toronto staff except - "go here". It took almost an hour which caused us to miss our MSP flight. If you have an international flight through this airport leave yourself more than 2 hours. We had a two hour window and didn't make it in time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants and captain were wonderful. The food wasn't bad either"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable and I paid for extra leg room. My lower back was hurting so bad after."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and I was very stressed that I wouldn't make my flight home"
Pros: "I liked the gate agents."
Cons: "Where to start? How about, the planes are so old and so poorly maintained that our plane was almost three hours late taking off while they fixed something. At least two other flights from Dublin to Toronto took off around us, but we were never offered to be switched over to other planes so we could make our connecting flights. As a result, a plane full of angry people hassled by a serious lack of customer service focus landed in Toronto and had to, AGAIN, get in a huge line to be processed with all of the missed flights. They knew we were coming--WHY weren't there more preparations made for a much smoother transition?? I hate Air Canada and will never again knowingly book that airline. They need to change out the entire fleet of old, crappy, smelly, falling-apart planes."
Cons: "As above I had two delays of three hours each"
Pros: "We arrived at our destination safely."
Cons: "Our flight departed from the gate late and then needed to return to the due to a door malfunction. After a 4 hour delay we were on our way. Bathrooms were closed before takeoff but no announcement was made that they would be open during the delay. No beverages were offered during the delay. Not all of the bathrooms were functional during the flight. The entertainment system is available through your iphone, ipad or computer. If you haven't downloaded the app prior to departing you can't use it and you then need to rent an ipad for $10 to watch movies."
Cons: "Being bumped off of our connecting flight home after a long international flight due to overbooking (even though we had checked in all the way through from our departure city). We got split up going home and the $800 voucher that we were promised was decreeased to $400. They also lost our bag due to the changes. The reason we didnt get priority for seats on our connection is because our first flight landed at the last minute and by the time we got to the gate, all but 1 seat were claimed on a furst come first served basis. All staff treated the entire thing as an "oh well tough luck". No empathy because they suck so bad, they're used to seeing angry customers."
Pros: "Flight crew were fine. Flight itself was uneventful."
Cons: "Flights were all over booked. People were being bumped, flights delayed. We were in the Toronto airport for 8 hours. We missed our connection in Denver. The Air Canada people on Toronto said someone would be waiting to help us get a hotel and a new flight when we reached Denver. In realit, the stewards on the flight just gave us a card with a customer service number, said call this number and they will get you accommodations. So no one was at the gate to meet us and no one ever answered the phone!! We were on hold for 48 minutes. We were stuck in the airport for ten hours, through the night, until another flight could be arranged. We had to find someone on United to get us on a new flight. My daughter and I were at the end of 24 hours of flying and expected that what we were told would be carried out. I was not impressed with the way this was handled and no apology or compensation from Air Canada for the delays and sleeping on the airport floor!!"
Cons: "My biggest complaint regarding air Canada is the poor service and indifference typically exhibited by their service staff."
Pros: "Friendly employees at each turn"
Cons: "Change food to more palatable. Improve entertainment options to rival Delta and Aer Lingus"
Pros: "the whole process was great. staff at the airport and in flight were all friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Good crew. Spacious seats"
Cons: "Needed the app to watch Player movies which you don't know about until you're onboard and its too late to download the app"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Flight got in early which is always nice."
Cons: "Outlets on the plane didn't work so I couldn't keep my phone charged. Kayak sent me an email indicating both my flights were on Air Canada but my flights to and from SFO were on United. I was unable to change my seats online with no explanation."
Cons: "Flight to Columbus cancelled....cheap vouchers for meals"
Pros: "Flights were all on time, crew and staff was very nice. Food was better then other flights I've been on."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable, smaller and did not recline as much as other air canada airplanes I have been on. There was no entertainment for the almost 7 hour flight unless you uploaded the app prior to boarding which we were not told and could not because our devices, or you rented a tablet (which for this long of a flight it shold be included). The cabin was warm and stuffy with not much airflow which made my motionsickness worse and the plane was all on one setting so I could not control anything."
Cons: "The hard seats were torture on a three plus hour flight. After one hour I just wanted it all to end."
Cons: "Food was not very good. Could not identify the green stuff and the eggs were interesting."
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"
Cons: "Entertainment was very poor"
