From the check in process problems to the actual check in at the airport, this was the worst airline compared to Qatar, Swiss and Qantas to name a few. The airline will not even let you purchase an upgrade unless you buy from their site, also if they pick you for a security check at the boarding gate they make...

I enjoyed flying Air Canada, I usually upgrade my seat if I fly Rouge just to get more of a comfortable experience. Most of the time there are seat sales so I get a great deal. the staff are attentive and provide a great service.

If you don't have priority check-in, be prepared to enter a mess of unorganized long queues with no instructions or help to distinguish between check-in assistance and bag drop. Otherwise, the actual counter check-in process is smooth and fast. The seating of Prem Econ is definitely much better with much more leg room available and reclined space. There is zero...

We had a horrible experience with AirCanada. On our departure, when we arrived to check in our bags, they told us it was first day that the EVA electronic visa thing for Canada was obligatory. My boyfriend is American so it didn't effect him, but for me, a french citizen, it was required. Note, they never said anything in any...

Food is awful but what do you expect? Slightly cramped, its economy (so what do you expect?)but every single time this one flight crew walked by her butt would hit me, every single time(....every single time...) One thing that I found frustrating is the lack of attention with having to help customers with overhead bins. I don't know how many...

I can't see why anyone would need to pay extra for business class when Air Canada has such large seats and much more leg room than you'd find on most airlines. We were pleasantly surprised, after having traveled to Italy via United and Lufthansa.

I really have bad motion sickness and airplanes are absolute worst for me. I usually pack some motion sickness tablets but I ran out and the airport wasn't selling any. So I politely asked one of the male attendants for a motion sickness pill before we take off, and he only responded with; "you don't need it" and had the...
