Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."

Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."

Cons: "I didn't like how in the Munich airport I couldn't find a place to plug my phone in. they should make those more accessible"
Pros: "Finally good seats"
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Paid for business class on LOT. Somehow this was delivered on a low cost carrier. Not the same business class product at all, ancient plane, worn seats though they claim to be "new" on this 767. Multiple hours delayed departing, no reason given, and no updates, we just sat there for hours. I assume mechanical. Caused me to miss my connection and here I am having to pay huge for a last minute hotel. Not what was advertised to me which was a LOT flight not a codeshare on an old plane. Booked it through Kayak, will not be doing THAT again."

Cons: "Delayed by one hour"

Cons: "my pre-arranged seat was changed without notice."
Cons: "I had requested a wheelchair upon arrival in Warsaw and in Toronto but it was not provided."

Cons: "going through Warsaw border control took forever, long lines, bad set up for transit passengers."
Cons: "Poor quality of announcements in Warsaw for boarding times."
Cons: "Toronto airport disappointing. We arrived one hour esrly, but the gate the toronto airport told us to go to was broken so we had to wait for over one hour on the plane. Then the plane was moved aside and we walked to the bus that drove us to the airport. No luggage information given airport Toronto"
Cons: "Very poor English for rhe crew. Not all of us speak Polish. Unpleasant crew, like they are doing you a favor."
Cons: "They keep the cabin too hot! I was uncomfortably warm for the entire 9hr flight. And there were no personal airvents to mitigate this problem."

Pros: "Food/drink options"
Cons: "Boarding process. Flight delayed"
Pros: "30 minutes late on boarding. No communication for reasons"
Pros: "The Dreamliner is shiny new and comfortable. Good authentic Polish food. Great variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "On-time performance was so-so, take-off was delayed ~1hr because of connections, had to wait on the runway at the destination airport, had to wait an eternity for my bag. Whatever genius who designed the in-flight entertainment controls should be punched in the face. The on-screen buttons are so easily pushed by passengers making their way to and from the aisle that passenger assistance and reading lights always go off on their own throughout the aircraft."
Pros: "Everything was excellent with my flight!Flight crew was very polite and excused about delay.Delay was 30 minut,wich is ok.They helped everyone,who needed help.Food was nice,seats are comfortable.Thanks for everything!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was as expected. Luggage arrive safely and on time (was a little worried it would not show, because online checkin said I had to pick up luggage and recheck before flight) (Virgin tagged it to go all the way through). So did not gav any issue."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late. No food service or entertainment for this flight, but was as expected."
Pros: "Arrived to Toronto on time. Flight attendants provided excellent customer service."
Cons: "Nothing to mention."
Pros: "Could check my suitcase earlier (arrived at airport too early). I had a bit off over 23 kg but that did not pose any problem. Boarding was quiet fast and almost with timetable.

Pros: "crew was very good and friendly"
Cons: "vegetarian meal contained no protein"
Pros: "Service in business class."
Pros: "Flights ran on time."
Cons: "Slow cue at check-in. Boarding gate miles from Security, 25mim walk. Plane aged. No food, tea in a flimsy paper cup. No entertainment."
Cons: "Very unpleasant and unhelpful staff (apart from the ones in-flight)"
Pros: "Movie selection was decent as well as the service - the crew was more or less nice and professional with me."
Cons: "The fact that we took off 1 hour late and no apologies have been given. No drink service ha been provided while everyone was just sitting there and waiting for takeoff. Normally the plane would catch up the 1 hr delay but not this time. We arrived 1 hour late."
Pros: "food prices, all on time"
Cons: "Cheap airline that is priced like a major airline. They charge for checked in luggage on flights between different EU countries. Major airlines don't do that, so check the fine print before purchasing."
Pros: "Relatively new aircraft with not-bad room between the rows. Water, coffee and tea offered gratis, otherwise pay for snacks, but prices not bad. Good flight for a budget airline. Twi toilets for a full plane a bit ridiculous, but the flight was only 2 1/2 hours, so no big lines."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine. The food was decent. The entertainment selection was good. The flight attendants were pleasant. We got plenty to eat and drink."
Cons: "We found out in Poland that my wife was missing an eTA number necessary for her to fly into Canada. With our previous flight delayed, the application did not process in time, and we missed our connecting flight. As a result, we were stuck in Poland for 24 hours, leading to lost sleep, added expense, and much frustration. Customer service in Poland was helpful but extremely slow. Many customers needed help and it took about an hour for each customer. We waited in line for hours. We were not charged for a new flight, but we did spend 10 exhausting hours in the airport before we had everything resolved and were able to leave and get a few hours of sleep."
Pros: "I like the food. Cabbage rolls on our wat back from Warsaw were unexpected. Such an excellent idea to serve Polish meals on the polish airline."
Pros: "The flight was smoothe"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess and is always a mess"
Cons: "No good meals available in the flight."
Pros: "Nice new plane (Dreamliner) with a lot of overhead space for hand luggage."
Cons: "There is less leg room than on other international carriers. I am tall and found it quite uncomfortable. I was also surprised by how bad the food was - worst airline food I have ever had on both trips. Sadly, also the most unfriendly air crew as well. Also, unlike international flights with Air Canada, you have to pay for alcohol (though the prices are pretty good)."
Pros: "Service, listening to my questions, overall!!"
Pros: "The entertainment on the plane was great. Large selection of movies, music, and TV shows to keep yourself entertained. The dinner was adequate. It was also nice having the overhead screens continually update our flight progress."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly cramped, by the end I was feeling seriously claustrophobic. It didn't help that we left late. The boarding process was a mess, nobody seemed to know what to do, and the announcements were all mumbled to the point where I was just guessing what to do. The second meal served was inedible as the bread was completely stale. Also, one of the toilets was broken and kept flushing, even when sitting on it. Like the boarding process, disembarking was sloppy and confusing. It took a very long time to open the door, and they only told people at the last minute that they needed to get their passports out."
Pros: "Very helpful staff during boarding very good dinner"
Cons: "breakfast meal - very dry sandwich with only one slice of cheese no internet access during flight inability to use headphones during take off and landing"
Cons: "Seats were too small."
Pros: "The 787 Dreamliner was nice, and the business class seats are roomy. And the ticket was priced right!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage in the outbound direction and no-one appeared to care. When I called the number that they provided frequently no-one answered. Even when I finally got through, no-one could provide me ANY information as to the whereabouts of my bag. It finally showed up on the last day of my stay, but it was delivered to another hotel (which I only figured out after about 10 phone calls). Also, they offer perhaps the worst in-flight video selection I have ever seen."
Pros: "Complementary headphones, drinks, and snacks. I flew economy as as a 6'3" guy I was generally comfortable -- though I would recommend you sit in the aisle seat. Food wasn't the worst."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "entertainment system did not work properly,food was worse than fast food,cabin crew was average at best."
Pros: "Got us home to Toronto from Warsaw in one piece and affordable."
Cons: "food was too simple. "Dinner" was so poor after 6 or 7 hours, we only received half a sandwich and a dessert. The seats did not give us a lot of movement. My husband could not even put down his tray table because woman in front pushed her chair back. In general, there was not a lot of English speaking from the stewardesses. Very strong Polish accents made it very hard to understand what they said on the speaker. Not too many choices of English movies."
Pros: "I could not fly. No return ticket on march 23, 2020. Justfly.com did not help me"
Cons: "It is always better to buy tickets through the airline."
Cons: "It was delayed on our way to destination. Also wish it was a direct flight to ponta delgado instead of going through lisbon. It was too much back and forth."
Pros: "nothing - they misinformed me left and right so I couldnt make properly informed decisions and then denied me boarding and told me to pay for a new flight after having spent over 750 and 3 days 2 nights at the airport due to the mishaps."
Cons: "staff that gives the correct information so u can properly plan for the check in and boarding procedures and compassion to advocate to let me onto the flight they made me jump thru hoops just to get onto."
Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Nasty people"
Pros: "The lady checking me in was nice"
Cons: "Items were stolen from my bag"
Cons: "The crew not sympathique"
Pros: "It was Okay"
Cons: "I m disappointed with the online deal I have booked my self with two checked bags & paid extra for that but I had to pay £ 80/-"
Pros: "Tap was great for the long flight"
Cons: "Hand luggage weighing queue delayed flight, Gatwick flights delays, missing luggage at Lisbon,"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "There was an undisclosed $120 baggage fee. The food was horrible and made me sick. We left nearly two hours late."
Pros: "A short but very pleasant flight and food was served, excellent in every category."
Cons: "Nothing, it was the best short flight I've ever had. The staff were very attentive and did a great job of keeping everyone happy."
Pros: "The crew was generously serving me and the price was more reasonable than any other."
Cons: "I had a huge passenger next to me who took most of my space the whole time during the flight and ended up hurting my neck and back. I understand it had nothing to do with the crew, but not comfortable at all. Besides, there was no entertainment and even outlet available."
Cons: "The entertainment is very poor. The programs are not on demand and the screeen is old, small and very poor quality. The A330-200 I flew from Boston to Lisbon was excellent and had the new lie flat seats and on-demand entertainment. Big difference between the two airplanes."
Pros: "all staf in airport pleasant and quickly to across other place to connect"
Cons: "a lot of people they pass by preference, and late for star Alliance"
Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people. The food is better last year. Is good."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."
Cons: "I was rerouted to Madrid and did not have the correct timely information to cancel and rebook or to get a credit toward a future flight. There was no clear item on line to be used for my problem."
Pros: "Everything was going well. Confotable seats lovely air hostesses. Food wasn’t so great but I was surprised we even got something!"
Cons: "Unfortunately I had problems at airport security which wasn’t very pleasant!"
Cons: "The long delay, more than 1.5 hours."
Cons: "Very hot, gross food"
Cons: "Horrible Terrible airline Tap"
Pros: "I liked that the airline provided blankets pillows and headsets at no extra cost for our 8 hour flight. The crew were very nice and accommodating. The food was good."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay 75 Euro for one checked bag. That should Have been more clearly set out when booking a flight. The entertainment could have been better. Poor reception for some shows."
Cons: "75 euros per bag on an international flight is robbery. I was also on my honeymoon, which I know shouldn't guarantee anything, but wow did it leave a bad impression, particularly when I hear stories of free upgrades all the time and I couldn't even get a free bag."
Cons: "Stuardes don't have a sense of what costumer service is.. 6 hour flights and their plain aren't equipt with monitors to watch and entertain yourself Thank God I understood portugués but their translation to English was poor Food was not amazing I've been traveling since I was 6yrs old and I never felt so strongly about an airline... Not even easy jet"
Cons: "I was not informed my flight was cancelled until the day of the flight. I was able to get in touch with someone to pay for another flight but the communication was lacking."
Pros: "Good service, nice meal."
Cons: "No USB ports or movie choices. Entertainment screen very small."
Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The 2 hour turned 3 hour delay. Lack of organizational during check in. Had to show our documents 4 times within 10 meters."
Cons: "I had an awful experience. A flight attendant named Comissário Bruno denied me a second dessert when I asked for one. I was flying business class on flight TP059 on March 4 2018 and have Gold status on Star Alliance. Many passengers had declined dessert and I felt extremely embarrassed by having been denied food on a plane for the first time in my life. The attitude and lack of tact of Comissario Bruno on TP059 spoiled the whole flight experience for me."
Pros: "Professional and courteous crew from check in the disembarking. Excellent on board food."
Cons: "Entertainment system was wonky throughout most of the seven hour flight."
Cons: "No air conditioning. Lots of apps didn’t work on the entertainment device."
Pros: "Flight not full, I could lay down!!"
Pros: "Food was abundant and pretty good. I paid $91.95 US (think it was 75 euro) for the exit row and felt this was money well spent."
Cons: "They charged me $90 for my luggage. Several weeks or perhaps even months after I booked, I received an e-mail saying I had booked Super Cheap Economy or some such. It had a link to pay for 'additional services' but not luggage. At the time of booking, I checked and the price given was $35. So, I have protested the additional $55 with my CC company and will see what happens. BTW the luggage was not overweight. They turned off all the lights, including my personal reading lamp, so I could not read and had to just sit there doing nothing. That really blew big chunks. I only got two small glasses of wine."
Cons: "This event refers to my TAP flight from Lisbon to Heathrow on 21-Jan-2018. We arrived to the airport nearly 2 hours before departure time, waited 35min in the security checks and my girlfriend was held 20min in the passport control. While she was queuing for the 2no police officers to check her passport, an airport assistant came to the queue and asked who was due to board in TP364 to Heathrow. She was made aware that my girlfriend was there due to board that flight. In the meantime I made my way to the gate to make the gate assistants aware that she was held in the passport checks and was already on her way to the gate. Having said that, the zealous assistants in the gate have closed the gate in front of me, 18min before scheduled departure time and - "very kindly" - told me that I wouldn't be boarding that flight anymore even though my girlfriend have arrived in the meantime. One can imagine the frustration I felt finding out that the flight departure was delayed and that the flight actually departed 40min late. At that time I was already suffering the extortion of the customer service from TAP, claiming from me circa 400Eur from each of us for a one way ticket in the next flight to London. Therefore... until I remember this... I AM NOT FLYING TAP ANYMORE... I am very proud of being Portuguese but in similar situations that occurred with me flying British Airways, Lufthansa or Air Italia, I have always been treated with much more respect and customer care!"
Pros: "I love flying TAP because I love having extended layovers in Lisbon. Lisbon itself, including the airport, is easy to navigate. The food is great and the culture and architecture is gorgeous. For shorter trips TAP doesn't have as many amenities as other airlines, but on this trip the typical video screens with movies, music, etc. was available."
Cons: "In this particular flight there was a male airline attendant who was fabulous and who could speak many languages, including German. I noticed the other airline attendants seemed to be giving him a really hard time and weren't friendly at all. In fact, I rang a bell to ask for attendant help at one point and no one came to help. I was just a seat back from the area where the helpful airline attendant was available. I think that overall TAP flight staff could be a bit more open to being friendly. However, on the ground in Lisbon I've found the staff to be amazingly helpful."
Pros: "Though it was a short flight, they did offer food and left mine on my table since I was sleeping. I woke up super thirsty and hungry so that was a nice surprise."
Cons: "TAP is perpetually delayed. It’s annoying."
Pros: "The head stewardess was so helpful and nice! I was traveling alone with a 3-month-old baby and was very stressed out. The head stewardess helped me so much, gave me a more comfortable seat, a private place to breastfeed and a bassinet for the baby! She was amazing and I owe her so much for making my experience better. I also received a baby gift package that had a much needed pacifier clip! The flight was also the smoothest flight I've ever had across the Atlantic!"
Cons: "No movie was shown on the shared TV in the first row. Had to only listen to music. Long stressful wait to board."
Pros: "Very friendly personnel at gate."
Cons: "Arrogant crew. Hid in galley behind curtain for most of the flight. For several hours not even the offer of a cup of water! No possibility to charge electronics in economy class. Charge of $ 75.00 for first bag on an international flight?!? We're not talking about a budget airline, but THE airline of Portugal!"
Cons: "Flight was delighted and service staff was slow"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 7 month old so boarding was made easy by the crew. Most of the crew were quite pleasant during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system hand piece failed so you were unable to select channels, turn the over head light off or ever call for assistance. We had to get another passenger to do that for us. Ultimately the light bulb had to be removed from the fixture. During the flight, we asked for more refreshments and were told we could only have water by a flight attendant. Upon arrival at our destination with a child in hand, our stroller was not unloaded at the gate so we had to carry our child and all that travels with him to the baggage area. For anyone travelling internationally, you will know this is generally quite a distant from the gate in major airports. The strollers and car seats arrived in baggage 30 minutes after the main luggage. When staff were approached they were short and appeared very disinterested in helping. TAP failed on this flight home."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the flight hours."
Pros: "Hot food and real utensils Good entertaining selection Very nice staff"
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Check-in and baggage drop was fast. Food was good. Cabin crew did their job. Economy plus seats are comfortable and leg room was ok (I'm 1,84m tall). So, smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "We arrived with 20 Minutes delay...and it was just the first shuttle of the day... could have been better"
Cons: "Bad system to board"
Pros: "Plane and comfort"
Cons: "Food and entertainment needs to be better. The transfer over to cologne from Portugal was a bit hectic due to customs and we just made it in time for our flight. Need a better system to verify the passports."
Pros: "I did like the crew and food were great!"
Cons: "I am very unhappy as I paid extra for my seat selection and did not get a window seat. I will be following up about my complaint"
Pros: "I was able to easily store my carryon which is the maximum size you can bring in the overhead compartment and store my large zippered bag underneath the seat with still plenty of space for my legs."
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the flight was fast and easy."
Cons: "New seats are very cramped."
Pros: "Boarding process and customer service"
Cons: "Food could have been better and seating comfort"
Pros: "The crew was very accomodating and the entertainment was nice"
Cons: "It is too crammed on this type of plane. Having three columns of three seats, four seats, and three seats is a bit too much. It seemed this type of plane is going for quantity instead of quality."
Cons: "Foods really mediocre at best. They serve food in heated plastic packaging!"
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "there were two really rude flight attendants....almost like they didn;t want to serve you. One of the ladies even literally threw a drink onto my tray. thank god it was sealed. Air canada needs to do a better job of dealing with this type of behaviour. It happens far too often with their staff"
Pros: "good food and support for wheelchair but have to wait longer then expected"
Cons: "my beg missing and take 3 hr at airport just to find out that i am not getting my beg and its 4 days now no reply or update from anyone....."
Cons: "baggage delayed at least 48 hours"
Pros: "Exept food everything was awesome"
Pros: "The crew were very good. In any case, I shall fly with AC again."
Cons: "Lining up to check in with bags. The customers were "sorted" but I finished up on a very long line with only one person serving; after 30 minutes, that person just wandered off, presumably for a break. We, on the queue waited for 15 minutes for a new person to return. When it was my turn to check in the process took no more tan 30 seconds whilst for others it had taken 10 minutes and more. Dreadful experience. The choice of entertaining films was limited on my flight; normally AC has a wide choice."
Pros: "The food was ok. Movie selection was decent and the screens are a lot better than on jet airways."
Cons: "Boarding was a little delayed. Service was a little slow, but the crew was courteous and did their best."
Pros: "I am 6ft 1 / 185cm and the leg room was OK for an economy flight. Food was OK for airplane food. Staff were very friendly. Overall very happy."
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"
Pros: "Air Canada is a respectable airline but the plane is not spacious at all. I mean, yes you pay for what you get, but damn the aircraft seats are so small. Then for people taking the morning flight, who probably haven’t eaten breakfast, you give them a measly omelet with a nasty side of spinach ? for the entire flight ? and a measly bag of pretzels ? Your starving the people which isn’t nice at all. Getting through baggage and getting in the flight was quite smooth and the air hosts were excellent. Entertainment was ok, there’s way to many Asian inspired films on there that I find are uninteresting, but hey, to each his own. Now coming back however was far better, the food was good, although can we stop putting soggy food into the mix, I know the food is premade but the mash potato is always so soggy and the vegetable mix has no flavour. Drinks are always great on the flight, entertainment was the same, hosts were great, pilot knows how to fly the plane, thank goodness, and overall it was a good flight back. Make the tiny adjustments I suggested and you’ll be at the top of your game Air Canada ! Merci !"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online and therefore wasn’t able to update with my dietary requirements which meant I couldn’t really eat anything that was given. I was told at the airport that it needs to be submitted 24 hrs before the flight and there was nothing they could do. Really unfair and not on."
Cons: "The crew was very friendly and efficient and the flight boarded, departed, and arrived on time."
Pros: "The crew. The keg room is OK and so was the food."
Cons: "My luggage was lost for five days. The USB port on the seat back didn't work and the sound for the movies was so bad I couldn't watch anything. No boarding by zones, which we had on our outbound flight."
Pros: "Everything went very very well."
Cons: "High cost Toronto Airport meals and beverages."
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Cons: "Old movies. Nothing recent"
Cons: "Toronto international airport was very crowded. too many people , not enough facilities. You have to line up to do anything, even buy a bottle water."
Cons: "Why not board front to rear. It would save mega aisle clog during boarding!"
Pros: "Very professional but also pleasant. Clean, good food."
Pros: "I really liked how the crew on our leg to Heathrow made sure we were comfortable and asked often if we wanted more drinks (water, etc). We had a delay in landing due to weather but we were able to make our connection because they called ahead to customs and we were able to go to the front of the line. That's service!"
Cons: "Bathrooms got kinda dirty about halfway through the long flight from Toronto to Heathrow."
Pros: "There were a couple guys sitting behind us who kept asking the stewardesses for more beer and more wine. And the stewardesses kept giving them for what they asked (free). These guys became loud - as drunks do. It was annoying as we couldn't hear the movie we were watching because those guys were so loud. Any alcohol being served out of meal time either should be charged or put a limit of two max."
Pros: "Really good experience Was very happy with the service and the stuff Would definitely do my next flight with air Canada Keep up the good work guys."
Pros: "The entertainment was first rate. Seats -although snug and with no room to spare (like all other flights) declined nicely with seat adjusting too. Seems like on other airlines this isn't the case. Outbound flight - staff were friendly, smiling, warm and welcoming."
Cons: "Very full flight. Did not like boarding process in Toronto - b fore filtering into zones it was crowded and felt a little like we were cattle being herded - unpleasant! On return flight staff were robotic - nothing warm or personal. Food was bland, poorly prepared and presented - but no different to any airline I've flown on. Late take off but we were kept informed by pilot. I"
Pros: "The boarding went smooth. The seats are very comfortable and there was a lot of leg room. The food was delicious and the service was great. I loved the selection of movies."
Pros: "Roomy, professional, friendly. Very efficient. Beverages, meals and snacks were timed well, so that the long flight felt like it went much quicker. I'm not particularly picky or spoiled, so me rating the breakfast and lunch as great, may not be the same fOr others. But my meals were delicious to me. I would definitely fly Canada air again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "There were no problems. I had an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Nothing. There were no problems. The screen did lock when I tried to look at the map."
Pros: "Easy boarding process and the entertainment selections were good."
Cons: "The flight crew were not attentive and rude at times. The one guy even rolled his eyes a few times. He would ask what you wanted to eat or drink and before you could answer he was walking past you to the next row. I had to call him back several times just to get a soda or water."
Pros: "On time flight best customer service"
Pros: "Getting through customs was very easy."
Cons: "The wine is awful ."
Cons: "Horrible to say the least"
Pros: "The flight crew seemed very helpful and friendly. The pasta meal was good."
Cons: "Too many people are allowed to bring too much carry-on baggage on board. I saw a family of 3 with 7 large bags using all of the overhead storage space on 2 sides of the aisle. Women were bringing on 2 carry on bags plus their huge, oversized purses. The limits should be strict and enforced- one bag, one personal item. Their selfishness causes problems for other passengers and the flight crew."
Cons: "Different treatment for persenger. Equal things should be treated equally."
Pros: "The crew was kind, helpful and expedient in their work"
Pros: "Great, new aircraft, entertainment system much improved"
Cons: "Business class boarding was slow, behind the people pretending to need advance boarding (but who recover on the plane and spring to their feet (vs waiting for assistance) at the destination and charge off unassisted. AC is pinching pennies (e.g., to save 2 cents/breakfast they omit the tomato relish that used to keep the omelette from seeming dry)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed Missed the connecting flight food was terrible on plane baggage was damaged reached London in two days instead of one so much restlessness missed important family gathering at the destination"
Cons: "Everything from customer service to flight."
Cons: "Lost bag. Took two days to return. Very bad customer service while trying to recover."
Pros: "Clean environment and temperature was pretty constant and comfortable. Staff helpful. The entertainment equipment worked well. This was not the case for for a number of passengers on another carrier's long flight within the past 9 months."
Cons: "There was a nice balance of food, beverages and snacks. However, the food quality was not the same as my previous flight. One meal included mashed potatoes and potato salad and I feel a green salad would have been a better balance. Taste was lacking a bit. Movie choices felt limited. This was "the" trip with the noisy, screaming 2yo sitting directly in front of me. I feel for the child and parents and feel some of the issue was the parent. Crew seemed to mostly ignore the situation. I'm a grandma so usually patient but others around me we clearly annoyed."
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier, food was lacking, flight left an hour late."
Pros: "The process through Heathrow was easy and efficient. Boarding was fairly quick for an international, large flight. The staff were always accommodating and friendly. I was comfortable in the seat, I am a small person but I did notice that the seat was significantly larger than other flights I have been on, and appreciated the entertainment, which had a great selection of movies."
Cons: "The meal served was very nice. The snack served after was a spicy chicken wrap and I really must question the wisdom of serving anything spicy in an enclosed environment with a limited number of toilets."
Pros: "Entertainment system was nice and I had a good seat on the aisle with no one in the middle, which was lucky."
Cons: "Getting checked in London was a pain. Air Canada had changed my original flight over (a change I wasn't happy with) and then when I got to LHR had marked my record for a change fee! Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Crew was generally inattentive, absent, and hardly friendly. At one point I was instructed how to load my (tiny) food tray properly after the meal. I am sorry but you are working for the airline and I am paying for service, which I didn't get."
Pros: "Generally OK Food quite good, relatively"
Cons: "30 mins delay Cramped even for Economy"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was wonderful. Great plane, food, staff, entertainment."
Cons: "The layover at Toronto. There were several areas of the airport that we had to go through like customs, immigration for the US and to then find the plane to the US. I had two children with me too. I had staff in the airport either not be willing to point directions for me; rather chat with their fellow employees; or give me wrong directions, then change their mind. It made it more stressful and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent New releases offered for in flight entertainment."
Cons: "That the plane was delayed and thus missed my connection and spent 10 hours on airport hell. The ground representatives were nice and tried to get me back home. The flight attendants on the flight itself were very busy."
Pros: "Crew tried hard"
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic. Seemed to be a new process that involved multiple checks and was not well organised. Entertainment system had not been loaded with the latest films and we're still from previous month."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, many whom seemed to enjoy their jobs and wanted to make everything a pleasant experience. Was used to Delta Airlines for over 20 years and they became the nightmare airline for Cincinnati. Best of luck to Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Food was no where near as good as the service, needs work in this area."
Cons: "Air Canada was poor in staying on schedule which caused me to miss my connection. They did not have anyone in the airport to to guide me to where I needed to go to reschedule. It took 2 hours to claim my checked luggage before I could go to the hotel. Then when I called that night to reschedule my flight I was informed that I was already scheduled for the next day. It would have been nice to leave the airport with my boarding pass. Then in the morning had to stand in line for an hour before I could get a boarding pass for a flight that was again delayed. Luckily it was the last leg of my return trip."
Pros: "Air hostess’ were really nice"
Cons: "No snacks offered"
Pros: "Crew amazing"
Cons: "Nothing. Always accommodating."
Pros: "The flight was without a hitch. One of the washroom in the plane was out of service but it was a non-issue. My vegetarian meal was the same from my departure flight but still ok. The mac and cheese for kids meal was also not bad. Entertainment was also good. There were a lot of choices for all ages."
Cons: "We waited for a few minutes at the corridor for the shuttle to take us to the plane. Maybe there was only 1 shuttle instead of 2 to take the passengers."
Cons: "We were fee'd to death. For example, this is the first time flying Air Transat where we had to pay extra for luggage and the cost was incredibly high! I feel ripped off."
Cons: "To have known that you had to do security twice without leaving the boarding area."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Boarding was awful. One queue in a very small area for all passengers. Agent tried to charge us 150 GBP for 3 carry on bags which we had previously carried on for 2 other flights. Felt like extension until I pushed back."
Pros: "Exit row window seat with empty row beside me. Next to washroom. Got 2hours sleep. All I can ask for."
Cons: "Business class upgrade for free."
Cons: "We boarded late and arrived late."
Pros: "Boarding arrangements."
Cons: "The only thing Air Transat could do better is punctuality. They do everything else very well and then spoil it with late arrivals and departures."
Cons: "Better notification that I was going to be charged £50 for each piece of luggage"
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "Seats can be a little more spacious"
Cons: "Flught was 90 mins late leaving becuse of equipment failure. Missed my meeting."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful. Kudos to the pilots."
Cons: "Our flight from YEG to YYZ was delayed by over an hour. Normally this wouldn't bother us, as we did not have a chance to get flight, however, we felt we were deceived and lied to by Air Transat at the gate. Specifically, the staff at the gate indicated that our flight would be delayed "intentionally" according to airline policy, to take advantage of favourable tailwinds to get the flight to YYZ on time. This explanation maked no sense, and was unfounded from a cursory Google search. When we finally boarded an hour later, the captain on the flight indicated that the plane was actually LATE arriving to YEG from a previous flight. I'm not expecting any specific reimbursement for the inconveniences to us or our family picking us up, but we and other customers should NEVER be decieved. If the flight is late, tell us, and indicate whether connecting flights (for those that have them) will be withheld or not or to make appropriate arrangements if otherwise not possible."
Pros: "It left fairly promptly. Service was efficient. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and the flights were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was catastrophic, just mush."
Cons: "I did not like that economy pax are limited to 1 checked in luggag. I think 2 in more ideal especially for an international flight."
Pros: "Reliability and flights departed and arrived as scheduled"
Pros: "Great video system."
Cons: "Seats and legroom are insufficient."
Pros: "The staff, the entertainment."
Cons: "The washrooms were a disaster"
Pros: "On time,I could charge my mobile"
Cons: "The curser of the smart screen was hard to use"
Pros: "Flying with Air Transat is pretty painless and stress-free. Check-in is quick and the service onboard is quite good."
Cons: "I wish ther were more meal options."
Pros: "The flight was only half full so we got to spread out and have room to stretch out. The crew were very good and the pilot’s comments were appreciated. The crew offered water frequently throughout the flight."
Cons: "My hot meal was lukewarm and the salad was not very good. The snack at the end of the flight was not good. Would have been better to have a muffin and some fruit or yogurt."
Pros: "Excellent baggage drop off and boarding in London. A surprise, quite pleasant meal. Good film choices. What's not to like?"
Cons: "One bathroom down meant the others were overworked."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "County check-in online and delayed 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew. The aircraft was very clean and new. It made the flight pleasant."
Cons: "I think a better variety of movies would have made the flight better. I paid $9 for ear buds that were perhaps not worth the money. Most airlines provide free of charge. However the flight cost was less expensive than the competition, so I have no complaints. I will fly again with Air transat"
Cons: "Antiquated electronics use procedures"
Pros: "i think the price was reasonable and it was a reliable and on time .We didn't had to pay extra for our meals and suite case."
Cons: "the seat was too close not enough leg room ."
Pros: "Much more comfortable than our outbound flight, better seats and more space. Movies were available this time versus the outbound flight that did not have an entertainment system. Main meal was nice. We flew "Option Plus". Flight landed on time."
Cons: "Main meal was quite nice but pre-landing snack was awful; pastry with a thin coating of tomato paste and veg."
Pros: "meals, attendants were pleasant and informative."
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "Stewardesses were great..... Very Helpful"
Cons: "Plane was dated ..... Bathrooms not clean."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly attendants."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold."
Cons: "Sitting in Toronto for three hours past scheduled boarding, minimal information. Missed my train out of Gatwick and only two pieces of luddage out of three."
Pros: "We paid extra for the options plus on this flight, which meant that we were able to choose our seats, we were given snacks, bottles of wine with our meal, blankets, pillows, face masks and headphones. Everyone else had to pay for these items on flight (if they wanted them). As a result we felt like royalty."
Cons: "Unfortunately you can never escape the family with the screaming baby..."
Pros: "I upgraded. What a difference!! First time travelling by Air Transat but hopefully not my last!! Great experience from start to finish."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great! Wish we could give more than 5 stars to some of the categories. The crew were amazing!!"
Pros: "20min early and excellent crew"
Cons: "Wifi entertainment went offline 30mins and and never restored. So no movies"
Pros: "Absolutely terrible experience"
Cons: "Boarding was a little challenging but that was more a function of updating and construction at Faro airport."
Pros: "U. Guys do a GOOD JOB GREAT CUDTOMER SERVICE"
Pros: "The flight was not full so I had lots of extra space. Really great value for the plane ticket price."
Cons: "The emergency exit seats were very slimmer than other airplanes. There was a lot of leg room, but at the waist it felt like someone was holding me. (36 inch waist, male). Overall not bad."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed that the plan was not full and you had room to move."
Pros: "They asked me to check in my cabin lugguage for free. :) everything was great - great price, great connectivity."
Cons: "Possibly the tightest pitch of any airline seats that I've ever flown on. I'm short but I felt cramped, so I'm sure the 182 meter man next to me was really suffering."
Pros: "The crew was professional and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 2.5 hours. They ran out of vegetarian meals before getting around to all passengers with the meal cart, only to have tons of extra meat-based meals they were trying to give away afterward. Very little space for an international flight as well."
Pros: "Nice smooth"
Pros: "Good leg room, comfortable seats, altogether a pleasing experience"
Cons: "The food was poor, so we didn't bother, but given the price of the tickets we couldn't complain"
Cons: "Bathrooms had no water, for toilet flushing or washing your hands. They knew before they took off. Wouldn't give us bottles of water to wash our hands with, could only use their squirt bottled of hand sanitizer. When I asked why they couldn't just give us water bottled, they told me they could only bring enough water to drink. The flight was half empty."
Pros: "Variety of things to keep you entertained."
Cons: "I found the crew un helpful with basic needs and with problematic situation onboard. And frankly rude."
Pros: "Plane was clean and entertainment system was decent"
Cons: "No frills, everything is extra charge, feel like you are being nickel and dimes over "free" snacks with coffee even ... tendency to up-sell you on things"
