When doing our own check in the machine only printed one of our boarding passes and if someone would like to upgrade prices should be more reasonable
I liked the staff. They were helpful despite all the delays. Pearson Airport needs to find a way to be better organized. Not sure how the current problems get solved, but very few flights are leaving on time. It seems like Air Canada is doing it’s best but it’s struggling to keep up with plane maintenance, baggage, and having enough staff for each flight.
Took off 3 hours late for 50 minute flight.
TV’s kept rebooting so almost impossible to watch anything. The announcements were impossible to understand in headphones and I was using nice Bose. Flight was over 4 hours late leaving
Large passenger next to me did not fit into small aircraft seat causing me severe discomfort.
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Smoothly flight"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable as I had the exit row"
Cons: "Flight was late by an hour taking off from DXB."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly. They were very accommodating and genuine."
Cons: "The washrooms should be cleaned during the flight."
Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and toilet was wet and stinky"
Pros: "Customer service rep was able to move us to an earlier flight"
Cons: "The flight we moved into got delayed after boarding. My wife watched an entire movie before takeoff. This all after having our flight cancelled the night before. I understand delays from weather but I felt air Canada’s communication was kacking"
Cons: "Flight delayed, rescheduled and didn't apologize and didn't compensate for the inconvenience. Staff is rude"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked so I was on standby even though I paid 1 week in advance Bag was missing. Shitty experience"
Pros: "Entertainment excellent for a short flight"
Pros: "I liked the clean cabin, decent service during meals and overall amenities offered. The plane itself was quite nice and more comfortable than most."
Cons: "The food seemed to be quite a small portion. The chicken entree was normal size, but lacking in taste. The side was also bland in flavor but a good mix of veggies. I would have enjoyed another small snack, such as cheese and crackers or some such. The movie list was fairly good with somewhat recent items. The TV list was lacking in choices, it seemed. However, that may be the content of modern TV. Access to the toilets were often hindered by staff, especially in the rear of the cabin. We were 45 minutes late. I was already booked on a flight 5+ hours later, which was nice. However, I was given a only a food voucher of 31CHF. The amount was wonderful, but they offered this at a time when I had already eaten on the plane and was not hungry at all. I could only buy a few things to eat or take with me, and the rest of the amount was wasted. Alternatives, could have been a partial refund, a visa gift card, an upgrade on my flight back, etc."
Cons: "There was a 90min delay on all flights going to toronto due to construction in toronto yet air canada (knowing this) boarded everyone on time anyway and made us sit on the runway for over an hour. They could have left us in the lounge until they were ready. Parents with babies do not appreciate such thoughtlessness. But hey, as far as air canada was concerned, they left the gate on time."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
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!!"
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Cons: "I called customer service to ask questions about the meal options, and for both flights (14.5 hrs) they signed me up for the wrong meals! The staff on the first flight was extremely rude and unhelpful, and refused to let me eat any of the extra meals. Making matters worse, I had asked customer service when I called if they sell food on the flight, which I was told yes. This turned out to be untrue. I had to survive the 14.5 hour flight by only eating 3 tiny bags of pretzels. I sent an email to customer service to complain about this (can't do this over the phone), and didn't hear back for more than a month. On my return international flight, I was AGAIN signed up for the wrong meal (vegan) even though I specifically went over my dietary preference (vegetarian, eats eggs and dairy). Then my luggage was left in Vancouver while I made my way to Sydney, so I had to wear the same clothes for over 72 hrs while the airline "apologized" with giving me only $50. I finally got someone to respond to my complaints when I tweeted them, and their response was that I selected the vegan food option...NOPE, and that's not an apology. I will not fly them again. (PS: they don't give eye masks or toothbrush/toothpaste on international flights even though other airlines do, and their selection of movies/TV shows is about half of other airlines)"
Cons: "My flight was canceled. And i have to spent about 9hours at airport."
Cons: "I had a special service request and it was not honored, not sure if it was due to flight delays or just not good customer service, I was disappointed because my flight changes three times before the trip and I placed two calls to the airline prior to trip to ensure my special needs were requested and confirmed."
Cons: "The flight was at least 1/2 late leaving. We were told we had to detour to Toronto to refuel as the plane couldn't hold enough fuel to make it to Los Angles. This caused us to make an unplanned stop which added a total of another 2 3/4 hours to our trip. Really not enough fuel to make a trip we paid for. The cabin was very warm, and we had already eaten our food we brought. Many people missed connections... Not pleased with Air Canada"
Pros: "I like the options for entertainment and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food options were terrible"
Cons: "I know it's a growing practice, but to charge for food is a policy that I think is short-sighted."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and seemed willing to help."
Cons: "The cabin was very cold during the 12+ hour flight, and the food was not very good."
Cons: "we pre booked seats at #14 because our daughter cannot walk without help, we took her to and from the plane by wheelchair to make it easier, they bumped us to seat # 32 , the very last one, that is a long walk, at check in the woman there was rude when we told her of our situation and that we had seats, she said there was nothing she could do because the plane was full, she was not very helpful at all, and asked if we wanted to take another plane. Our whole family has been traveling with air Canada, but I think it's time for a change. Very disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "We boarded on time and made connecting flight with no issues."
Cons: "My son had no tv monitor (broken?0 the entire trip with no resolution to the issue. We asked flight crew several times to see what could be done and were told they would reset it. We have very little confidence that was done and no other resolution was pursued. The plane was not very clean and the smell of one of the bathrooms was terrible."
Pros: "customer services"
Pros: "crew was awesome"
Cons: "that people can recline their seats in coach. very uncomfortable and there's really not enough room to do this."
Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."
Pros: "great seats much roomier than other airlines"
Pros: "Food was mediocre. Clean."
Cons: "The flight attendants were late, delayed boarding."
Cons: "When boarding the plane, they called the zones too quickly. Then there was an Air Canada representative giving bad directions to the passengers as to where to get in line. Then she got annoyed and was disrespectful to the passengers as they were trying to get in line. She needed to give better directions or change the way they called the zones. Air Canada knew the flight to Montreal was delayed when we left London. They changed our reservation to Toronto to a flight that we still couldn't connect with because of timing. It would have been easier if they were more realistic with the timing of the flight and booked us on a later flight to Toronto."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "My flight was re-routed due to weather then. We had to wait a couple of hours for fuel then the pilots had to switch. It was horrible. The crew asked us to remain on the flight so we could leave faster which was lie. The smaller airport had food they didnt want us to go down and eat. It was an aweful experience. I paid extra money to get to cali earlier and ended up later than I wouldve if i had gone with the cheaper flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I like the individual movie screens."
Cons: "Flight left at least an hour and a half late thought they said it would be 39 minutes."
Cons: "No TVs on a 10 hour flight, check-in got messed up but nobody kept us informed and I had to run to the gate with no time to get water or snacks, trash service was very slow so my trash kept piling up, meal was not very good"
Cons: "Bathroom needed more attention to cleanliness"
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: "Great flight, entertainment system, flight staff made me feel at home"
Cons: "For some reason, I was not allowed to check-in on line."
Pros: "I'm happy the flight did continue and I arrived late but not cancelled. I have had numerous bad experiences with AC in last couple years with cancellations, being bumped, flight changes - you name it. A mechanically sound plane is worth the wait"
Cons: "Arriving to the airport thinking flight is 30 delayed only to have been dropped off and then find out I have a 2 hour delay. I live 3 minutes from the airport and then I have to sit in airport for 2 extra hours."
Cons: "I did not like that I could not use my own ear phones to watch movies during my flight. Also they do not offer visa debit on flights so I was not able to purchase ear phones. Which made the 4.5 hour flight long. And my head rest was very uncomfortable, I am short and it pushed my head forward too much which hurt my neck. It would be nice to have the option to remove it. Also on a 4.5 hour flight they should offer free little snack like peanuts or a fruit cup."
Cons: "delayed due to computer malfunction, food awful, missed my connection, had to wait for 6 hours"
Pros: "The service was good on the flight."
Cons: "The delay... I don't think that was air Canada's fault though. The weather had an effect on that."
Pros: "Better food like Emirates and clean like Air France/KLM"
