Reviews/ What Users Have to Say
“As always great service with Air Canada. Seats very comfortable on Boeing 777 – in economy, but plenty of legroom for my wife and I. At seat service as always good. Flights were punctual. Did feel sorry for the flight cabin crew – passengers bringing on cabin bags bigger than my checked luggage and then expecting it to be fitted in an overhead bin. (Traveled November 2016) says WorldTravellor1983.
“Flew Toronto to London on Air Canada’s new 789 Dreamliner. Everything from check in to making my connection in London was well handled and professional and service from the flight steward was very good. Food on board was pretty good, not the best nor the worst I had, but I wasn’t flying that route for the food. I would use Air Canada again.” (Traveled December 2016) says ScottB.
