“Short flight”
Review of Air Canada


Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Left Vancouver on time Bombardier 900 was very cramped and full, staff did relocate two taller passengers so that was a plus for them, only a 2 hour flight and we were offered free drinks and a pretzel and we arrived on time.
Had to pay extra to reserve seats though !

    • Seat comfort
    • Customer service (e.g. attitude, care, helpfulness)
    • Legroom
    • In-flight entertainment (WiFi, TV, films)
    • Value for money

First of all the flights were booked for us by the Scenic tour group, left UK bang on time 10.05 on a 787 Dreamliner very smooth and uneventful flight with a meal and snack included, in flight entertainment was OK, landed in Vancouver on time and connecting flight 2 hours later was a rickety old Dash 8 twin prop, flight was 11 minutes so over before it began.
My only gripe is having to pay extra to reserve two seats together a ruse to screw more cash from our pockets, no such shenanigans on Singapore Airlines my previous airline of choice.

We recently flew from Toronto to London Heathrow on Air Canada 858. With departure time just before midnight, we took advantage of Air Canada’s Signature Suite at Toronto Pearson to enjoy dinner before boarding the aircraft, thanks to helpful check-in staff who alerted us to this new amenity. Pre-flight dining allowed one of us to fall asleep shortly after take-off, maximizing the sleep portion of the flight, while the other enjoyed seemingly every film available on the inflight entertainment system. Staff were courteous and professional as always. The Boeing 777 was spacious and comfortable and touched down smoothly on time at Heathrow.

It is an expensive flight but it is the only direct flight. I have taken other connecting flights and almost always have issues. Flight has always been on time & great staff. The amount of time it saves is worth the extra cost.

My friend's luggage was completely destroyed and didn't get a refund. Terrible "entertainment" selection. Food was not good and many things were not included in a long flight. Simply put, terrible.
