“Can't rate 1/2 star - 1 out of 5 is generous.”

Written on: 29/11/2016 by AlianaSmith216 (1 review written)

Have travelled Air Canada several times only because there is no other option available. Inconsistent to what an allowable carry on size can be - bought suitcase based on their specs and still didn't 'fit' sizer. Never on time / rude - make you feel like they are doing you a favor / wait times for call and email responses unreasonable / lack of info on website and just overall very poor travel experiences with them. Avoid if at all possible… Read Full Review

“Worst airline ever”

Written on: 24/10/2016 by Peck1984 (1 review written)

Three flight delayed , canceled or mechanical issues. Took a day and half out of our vacation. It wasn't just one flight, but 3 and the worst was dealing with the customer service line/people to rebook once your flight is canceled. We stood there for 2.5 hours. The people were rude, slow, incompetent, unorganized and there was no management. The managers would call on the phone and talk to the workers, but not come down. The workers didn't care because they said they were getting overtime. They… Read Full Review

“Delayed 3 times. Do Not Fly Air Canada”

Written on: 29/07/2016 by LibertyHayes376 (1 review written)

Two day delay!!! We made our connection but they couldn't get the bag over in time, so we get bumped before we even landed (I would have told them to junk he bag and get me on the plane) but told nothing but go see customer service. We get to customer service, and (wait for it) - wait 3 HOURS in line!!!! 3 Hours!?!? No kidding, only to be told that there is nothing they can do and btw there is an event in town so there is not hotels within 45 mins of the hotel. Then we are told that we were… Read Full Review

“Won't Fly on Air Canada Again”

Written on: 20/07/2016 by KurtTheMerchant (1 review written)

I was in Narita Airport during the month of April waiting for my flight to Calgary. There was a delay of one hour shown on the airport. Two hours later no one at the gate knew what was going on. Hour three we were told our plane was in Nagoya and would arrive in about 1 hour. Four hours later we were still waiting. Water was passed out to customers. Five hours later we were told there was a continued delay due to the weather yet two previous Air Canada flights left so customers began to… Read Full Review

“Worst customer service”

Written on: 14/07/2016 by Zackary251 (1 review written)

I will never fly Air Canada again. In Toronto, Delays followed by a cancelled flight. Rebooked for the next day, but no hotel voucher, no airport food voucher. Nonsense! Customer service people are no help and not nice about it. They told me to go the third floor of the airport to sleep. Third floor has almost no carpeting and the benches have armrests. Similar story for my flight out, delays followed by an aircraft that took off and then we had to return to airport due to mechanical issue… Read Full Review

“Customer Service”

Written on: 11/01/2016 by erflorida (1 review written)

They customer service line is not very helpful at all!! They are very matter of fact about everything! Don't want to give the extra hand to help you figure anything out. Then they change all their sun destinations to Rouge which is not a comfortable and very good flight to say the least. They charge you the same money less room and no service!! Can't believe this at all!! Very disappointing!! It almost feels like they don't want to be there on that flight or totally hate their job!! When… Read Full Review

“Do not fly Air Canada”

Written on: 24/12/2015 by GlennPennington237 (1 review written)

I purchased an international ticket through Lufthansa which requires 1 connection in Germany. After couple of months, I received an email that one of the flights was cancelled. And guess what? The flight was operated by Air Canada. They automatically booked me on another flight but the connection were not good. So, I called Lufthansa to rebook it or cancel it. They told it will cost me $300 to rebook it because it is not their fault that the flight was cancelled. I called Air Canada and they… Read Full Review

“Air Canada cost me $$thousand of dollars due to delay ”

Written on: 17/08/2015 by McMahonsf277 (1 review written)

My family (15 of us) were returning to Orlando, FL from Athens, GR on Air Canada flight that was delayed four hours in Athens because of mechanical problems. Before I explain what generated costs for us, I would like to make you aware AC from Athens to Toronto (more than 10 hours), had NO entertainment at all- no movies, no television, no games, no radio, no electronics at all. We had 2 small children ages 6 and 7, and 5 teenagers from 15 yrs old to 18 yrs old. Air Canada offered to rent an… Read Full Review

“Never Fly Air Canada”

Written on: 08/07/2015 by alannahubert (1 review written)

I booked our vacation package specifically because the flight attached to the Gran Bahia was flying with Air Canada and I expected to be impressed with this airline. Unfortunately, everything on Air Canada’s end was abysmal. Our flight (AC-1812), scheduled to depart from Toronto at 4:35pm was delayed five hours thus we arrived at our hotel at 5:30am and lost a huge part of the first day on our trip. We heard that the plane had mechanical problems in Cancun and was thus delayed. After 4.5… Read Full Review

I was supposed to be in a DIRECT FLIGHT from Newark to Calgary on June 4. Flight was at 8 am, have checked in the night before already.. I was carrying a huge box and a luggage which I both checked in and paid the charges.. in the airport they instead booked me to a connecting flight from Toronto,issued two separate boarding passes and informed me that I have to claim my two heavy luggage in Toronto and check them in again for Calgary!! Can you imagine the hustle that I went through?, I had a… Read Full Review

“Poor, poorer, poorest”

Written on: 09/06/2015 by O'Reillyiq379 (1 review written)

Air Canada "lost" my son's luggage, causing us to miss our flight. A reputable airline would have GIVEN A FOOD VOUCHER to us, since we missed a 4:50 p.m. flight and weren't rescheduled until 8:55 (and then moved to 3 different gates and 3 different departure times--without notification of the first change!) We did not even hear an APOLOGY for causing us to miss our flight. Aside from soup, the cheapest thing we found on the menu at the nearest restaurant in the terminal (always expensive)… Read Full Review

“Avoid Air Canada”

Written on: 15/04/2015 by PaxtonBuckley281 (1 review written)

I am a Star Alliance frequent traveler. I recently had one of the worst experiences in my more than 3 decades of frequent travel. I tried to resolve the issues with Air Canada but received no no response for the longest time and then just a cursory email rejecting any responsibility for their disruption of travel. I must say that my recent trip with Air Canada was disappointing to the extreme. We were traveling back to Shanghai from Portland where we had gone for my mother-in-law's funeral… Read Full Review

“Horrible experience”

Written on: 19/03/2015 by Pepper101 (1 review written)

Flying Air Canada was not a good experience. We were flying from Indianapolis to Toronto to Hong Kong to catch a Crusie to SE Asia. The first thing that happened was our flight from Indianapolis to Toronto was cancelled with no warning. When we arrived at the airport, there was no one at the checkin counter. No one taking this flight was contacted about the cancellation. There was a United agent there handing out a card with Air Canada customer service numbers. I called customer service and… Read Full Review

“Avoid using Air Canada”

Written on: 06/01/2015

My flight was canceled due to weather in St. John's Newfoundland on 27-12-2015. AC never notified me. I found out when I got to the airport. AC did not automatically rebook my flight. It took three calls of 45 minute hold time to finally rebook myself . First 2 agents refused to reroute me or give me a free upgrade although seats were available in business class. My flight was canceled on a Monday and the first agent I contacted said I had to wait until Friday to leave. Would not reroute me… Read Full Review

“Abysmal Customer Service”

Written on: 21/11/2014

Unfortunately, I have flown with AC a few too many times but it has mostly been because of lack of flight options to the province I normally travel to. However, after the most recent awful experience, I will go out of my way to avoid them. Each of my international business class flights have been awful experiences. In one, one of the flight staff loudly complained about the passengers and I could clearly hear her because I was situated in a seat close to their cubby. The most recent awful… Read Full Review

“Dreadful experience, will never fly Air Canada again!”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by Leroyi433 (1 review written)

Having never flown with them we assumed Canada's national carrier would be good - wrong!! On return from Orlando to London via Toronto we were informed in Orlando that we couldn't fly on booked flights but would have to reroute via Ottawa. We protested but were refused boarding on the Toronto-Heathrow flight. On arrival in Toronto we discovered that we had not been booked any connection from Ottawa to London and that the next flight was at 10.30 the following night. We also discovered that we… Read Full Review

Avoid like the plague. Air canada cancelled my 14 hour flight from rome to SFO and put me on a 23 hour flight back with 4 connections. That is not the product I ordered -- that should be illegal or ground for full reimbursement. Flying is horrible these days… Read Full Review

“Bad luck and bad service?”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by JovanniQuinn1958 (1 review written)

Bad management equal bankrupted airline service that screwed many flyers. Combines this with ruthless guidelines that if you show up 40mins before the flight actually flies, your cut off! existing tickets? nah, you'll need to fork out more money for them. This happened to me 3 times too many, just go with WestJet… Read Full Review
