Long flights in economy class are more often than not a painful exercise. However, we recently had a great flight on Air Canada from London Heathrow to Toronto. What made it truly a pleasurable flight was that it was on one of the new Boeing 787 planes. The plane has comfortable seats, decent legroom, a great entertainment system with plenty...

The staff is wonderful, they are very attentive and giving of themselves. Always helping with a smile even when they are busy handing out breakfast and dinner. Check-in is a breeze. I have not had to use baggage claim yet. I am hoping it too will be a good experience. The seats are comfortable even on a 11 hour flight...

Air canada let me down, Canadians are often friendly and always prompt to help, not the case in Air canada, crew rude and uninterested, plane a little shabby, ground staff did not treat well non canadian passport holders, I understand they need to pay attention on the visa issue but that was too much. You pay for everything on board...

I've flown trans-Atlantic on Air Canada twice (8 legs total) with Toronto as the connecting city, and have always had a disappointing experience. While the flights themselves are fine once they're in the air, ultimately the disorganization of the airline and poor booking/check-in experience drags their rating down. All flights I've flown have been late. The latest one, due to...

On Air Canada. The airplane was new with really uncomfortable seats. Unfortunately it's not going to make people happy. The Flight crew was friendly and competent. United Airlines upgraded my wife up to business class. When we arrived at the airport Air Canada wanted her to pay an additional $55.

It was an evening flight. We got to the airport at the designated time and were told to go through to the departure lounge and wait. Flight time came and some of the flight personnel were waiting there too. Long after departure time people were going to the person at the podium and asked what was going on only to...

For such a long flight the seats were comfortable. The ambient mood lighting in the plane was terrific.The lighting would change to allow you to sleep and then later to wake up slowly. All seats have touch screen screens for music, movies and games and there is a power port to charge phones and tablets. Food was decent. The staff...
