Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew except one were friendly. Best landing ever in St. John’s. Flights on time."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. No food selection on last flight and flight attendant was reluctant to be helpful about it."
Cons: "Air Canada continues to underwhelm me. We left the gate 35 minutes late despite having everyone on board. Then off to de-ice where we sat with a truck outside for ten minutes they did work. It was like they were having a coffee break. The flight and board service was exceptional. Baggage delay of a"
Pros: "The Toronto to Victoria service was a good one earlier but now with Air Canada Rouge service is not very comfortable and the best choice given that it a long flight. No Onboard entertainment, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The plain was not full and my section at the back was quite empty so I had seats to my self and was able to lay down. The plane had been recently refurbished and everything was clean and new."
Cons: "Very rushed boarding, this happened last time too. They called for my section to board and I immediately got into line. They made two more call where the staff sounded quite annoyed. "We're still missing passengers" " If you are in section 3 you need to come to the gate right away" he made the second call when there was one person infront of me in the line. Like everyone was in line we just hadn't been processed yet. I don't know why we need to be rushed onto the plane by impatient staff. My entertainment device stopped working in the middle of a movie and didn't work for the rest of the flight."
Cons: "Probably not an Air Canada issue but we went to departures and were well through the process when we were told that our bag would have to be checked (which was obvious). The lady acted like it was my fault that the other person had let me through with a cart and a full sized suitcase. A second young lady was a bit more sympathetic and helpful. Thankfully we arrived at the airport well in advance."
Pros: "The crew to San Francisco"
Cons: "canada rouge"
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Cons: "No lights working.Could not get on to entertainment on devices"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice causing us to miss our connecting flight to Copenhagen. Air Canada then put us on a flight to London and then connecting to Copenhagen we arrived at 4 PM instead of 10AM ."
Pros: "The flight was good, on time, and comfortable. Crew was polite and informative."
Cons: "The sound did not work on my screen, even after trying 3 different sets of headphones."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the airplane was really cold. The flight was delayed to the point where we would not have made our connection if our second flight was not delayed. The sound quality of the entertainment was very poor."
Pros: "The staff was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Cons: "service desk unable to reroute me on a different flight even though there are seats"
Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."
Pros: "Managed to arrive on time in spite of leaving 1 hr 15 min late."
Cons: "Air Canada connecting flight from LA was 1 hr late coming in and no indication was given whether the flight to Milan would wait, nor any help was given in getting us to the gate. We barely made it through crowds at the adjacent gates and only because we heard our name called before closing the gate. A bit of coordination and desire to help would have gone a long way in helping navigate access through a long and less than walker-friendly set of terminals."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "I got to my destination an hour after I was supposed to"
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I really couldn't believe that I had a 13 hour flight on a brand new B787 with no WiFi capability. I travelled economy class and it was full, but it was obvious that 14 of 28 business class seats were empty. Well no wonder. If I were travelling 13 hours on business and couldn't connect, while on business it would be a time resource wasted. You should rethink your business plan. I suspect your losing fares to different carriers. Even travelling coach I will look for other carriers to compare to on future long haul flights. Too bad, you did everything else great. Robert Howell - firstname.lastname@example.org"

Pros: "Narita airport ground crew were very enthusiastic Air line crew were nice as well"

Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "The price for a round trip flight Philadelphia to Barcelona was fantastic. Unfortunately, this was a case of you getting what you pay for. Both my husband and I were very unhappy with the entire experience."
Cons: "Airplanes were very uncomfortable, flight crew was unfriendly (smiles were scarce and you felt you annoyed them if you wanted anything), service took too long (perhaps not enough personnel for number of passengers), plane was extremely warm, food was only fair -- all other international flights I've taken have had much better food and comforts). We had long layover on return flight in Toronto and airport and Air Canada personnel were not very helpful or accommodating. When we asked for a suggestion on where we could go in the airport to kill several hours (eating, drinking, watching TV), were were told by many that the airport is bad and we're given conflicting or poor answers. Intimately the advice given put us having to go thru security and Custims again (even though we already had) and that process was extremely disorganized and time consuming."
Pros: "Boarded promptly. In flight entertainment on AC is always great."
Pros: "Choices of movies were nice . Food was good ."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour, making it almost impossible to catch our connecting flight in Montreal. Thankfully, the flight out of Montreal was delayed and we were able to make the flight by the very last minute."
Pros: "In seat entertainment console with recent movies. Only food for purchase."
Pros: "Once again great airline!!"
Cons: "Food is meh at best but is reasonably price for quality"
Pros: "Direct flight and good schedule"
Cons: "The price was higher than Delta direct flight but I chose AC because of my top tier status on AC. That got me a complimentary upgrade but the entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "-very little leg room on rouge plane -do not own a device to watch movies etc -this is very exclusive and assumes that everyone has access to devices"
Pros: "We arrived on time and safely."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess. This is due more to the Toronto airport than Air Canada. Passengers standing in front of the entrance to the gate made cueing up to enter when your zone was called impossible. Drinks were offered only twice on the 5 hour flight. Bathrooms were filthy."
Pros: "I liked the streaming entertainment I enjoyed the friendliness of the crew I was pleased with the Canada air app allowing check-in and tracking of flight"
Cons: "The comfortability of the flight was poor. Both my wife and I were too uncomfortable to be able to sleep on out more than 9 hour flight. Leg room bad, seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "Although the air planes are newer, the seats are uncomfortably smaller which makes long distance flights very unpleasant."
Pros: "The crew treated me very well. I had reasonable leg room in economy class. The plane was beautiful, clean and super modern, one of the nicest aircraft that I have flown with in many years!"
Cons: "I ordered Asian vegan meals, but I was very disappointed with was presented to me. The food looked awful, tasted bland and insipid! I hope that that problem will be rectified on my return to the US."
Pros: "The flight attendants, especially Theresa, were fantastic. Theresa was very attentive, fun, and made each passenger feel special. The flight crew Supervisor greeted us each by name and leads a spectacular crew. The seat, amenities, entertainment, and food were just amazing."
Cons: "Business class did not have it's own boarding call."
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "No tv working. Surprise"
Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and crew was friendly"
Cons: "The chairs are not very adjustable and are too tall for me (feet don't reach floor and no footrest that could work). The selection of movies was good, but a bit small."
Pros: "Crew, entertainment, food was 3/5 not many options (I liked it more than not)"
Cons: "No wifi, food selection wasn't really optional and it felt like school lunches"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "No complimentary snacks and all available food extremely expensive. Would not use this airline again if others were an option."
Pros: "On time with nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding a bit of a mess"
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."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."
