Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."

Cons: "Rough air"

Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."

Cons: "No free snacks. You had to pay for headphones."

Pros: "Boarding very fast"
Cons: "Very small plane. No snacks offered."

Cons: "I fly 5+ times a year and I always have to take Air Canada. It isn't by choice. There is ALWAYS a delay or something is broken or the inbound plan had an issue etc. It could be a lot worse but it could be a hell of a lot better."

Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff.

Pros: "The entire boarding process, takeoff, staff were all good."
Cons: "The entertainment system went down mid flight and I was unable to finish watching a show. Not happy about this."

Pros: "Finding my luggage and sending it to me was the best part of this flight."
Cons: "Weather was the issue in Toronto on December 29, 2017. However, We're in Canada, Toronto specifically and we've dealt with weather like this NUMEROUS times. For Air Canada to cancel flights 2 times in a row without any further communications with any of us... To tell us when we'd be rebooked, how, etc. is horrible. I work in the transportation industry which is American based and we can handle this much better than Air Canada. Awful... Wendell/Gate Agent said he couldn't rebook my flight until the 31st, but when I got home I called air Canada and she was able to rebook me on the 30th with no issues. Nonsense. Wendell didn't care, he was tired, yawned in our faces like it was acceptable. Awful service. I'm flying with Air Canada on my way from India in the next couple of weeks I hope I get better service. Otherwise, completion will be my only option."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"

Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"

Pros: "Quick easy flight. Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Kept us up to date and gave us a lunch voucher."
Cons: "We had a 4 hr weight in St John's"

Cons: "Connection was two short when flight was delayed 15 minutes would have missed next flight. Had to change to different later flight ended up getting into St. John at a very difficult time to try and find our way in a new place. Flew direct to St. John."

Pros: "There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok."

Pros: "No wasted time, they load you up and get you where you want to be."
Cons: "Be sure to gate check anything larger than a small backpack or purse. There is little room on board for carry-on's"

Cons: "Delayed, missed connection"

Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."

Pros: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working, so I had no entertainment for the ride."

Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."

Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"

Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Leg room was better than most airlines as was the food and entertainment choices."

Pros: "Boeing 767 is a great aircraft in every way!"
Cons: "A shame to connect in Toronto!"

Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "Everything was cool."

Cons: "My tv didn't work"

Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
