Took off 3 hours late for 50 minute flight.
Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."
Cons: "Connecting flight in Toronto late 4 HOURS!!!!! There is no excuse for such delay. Another plane should have been made available for the flight."
Pros: "Flight wasn't crowded and it was a quiet flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but baggage arrived fine."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "Everything went well, the crew was great."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for the first two hours"
Pros: "Good legroom and entertainment options, on time. Enjoyable overall."
Cons: "Food showed British heritage -- stodgy, boring, overcooked. The bathrooms were dirty and out of supplies after a while."
Pros: "You fly a beautiful plane, the Boeing 787. Excellent entertainment, more comfortable seats, and just about everything on this plain was upgraded. It is a case study of how to do things right. The most impactful for me was air humidity. It was refreshing to fly and not feel like I've been in the Sahara desert at high noon. So, your starting point is really high, but you really need to look at your service."
Cons: "our flight was 40 minutes late in departing TLV. My connection in Toronto then was changed to a later flight, which was then delayed too by 50 minutes. all in all a 14 hour flight with connection ended up being close to 18 hours. My biggest two complaints about the flight itself is the food & the toilets. Your meals are the worst I've had in a major airline, and you should not serve customer frozen of close to frozen bread or sandwiches. If you are serving rolls, sandwiches or pitas, or bagels heat them up first. El-Al has been doing it for decades, go look at how they do it. But besides the bread/sandwiches issue, your meals are a really bad version of frozen supermarket meals. Just terrible all round. The other complaint is the bathroom. It was not cleaned frequently enough."
Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Everything Luggage no come on time This is the worst company"
Pros: "The flight was relatively empty, so there was a lot of room. Had it been full, I'm not sure I would have rated comfort so highly."
Pros: "The food was good, staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left an hour late with no explanation, causing us to miss our connecting flight in Toronto. They did switch our boarding passes to a later flight, but only 1 of 3 pieces of luggage arrived in chicago (as did also to 4 other families on our flight) it took 2 more days until we received them."
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants. Great food!"
Pros: "Food good Choice of movies pretty good"

Pros: "Fantastic service. I will use Air Canada again."
Cons: "The delay was unforeseen but acceptable."
Cons: "There was no information for the new rules of eTA and I've lost my flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto to my friends baby's baptism. Shame!"
Cons: "Not on time. I missed my connecting flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."
Cons: "I did not like aircanada changed my sit without asking me.I did not like delays."
Pros: "Food need to improve it's no taste and stank of meat"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were very good."
Cons: "Air Canada Legs were excellent, but Rouge Sucks!"
Pros: "Staff was super nice to my surprise."
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful The food was good"
Pros: "New aircraft 787. Direct flight from Israel to Canada, no layover in Europe. That was nice. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The worst part was the airport in Toronto. Very confusing to get around in. And having to fill out custom papers for Canada when I wasn't staying in Canada or leaving the airport. Didn't like that. But the service of Air Canada makes up for the airport, I would use their service again."
Pros: "the mounties rock, seriously"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating."
Cons: "There could have been a bit more on the entertainment selection side."
Pros: "I loved the 787 with the mood lighting and humidified air. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive. I loved the warm towels after take off and before landing!!!"
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Toronto. Could have done with a much shorter layover. A Dr. Pepper as a soda selection would be nice but not essential."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The seats are too tight"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "The food was not good"
Pros: "Great customer service great people"

Pros: "Arrival times for principle flight..."
Cons: "Long walks at Toronto..."
Pros: "The 787 is avery comfortable airlplane."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and caring"
Cons: "My vegetarian food choice did not transfer from my United Airlines profile"
Pros: "Love the new planes and choose aircanada for all my Tel Aviv flight because of this"
Cons: "Food is terrible and it's always very cold. Near the end of the flight the A/C started leaking water from the ceiling."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"
The plane didnt arrive so we were transferred to Elal -Thank God
Great service and adequate food on inter continental flight, but inter-Europe flights they charge for EVERYTHING including water!!
Only 4.5 hrs flight, regular commercial flight. Not crouded at all which was great! But - No entertainment whatsoever. No food or drinks. Even water. I would gladly pay for food, whereas every thing written in the menu wasn't available, but snacks. Not funny guys!! We were in 2 hour lines before boarding. We were not aware that the 400 us dolarla tickets are without food and drinks. We were tired and we were hungry and thirsty. And here it was: a very appetizing menu that we can't buy anything on it.... Again, not funny at all.
Pros: "service in general"
Cons: "no covid separation at seats"
Pros: "The seat was terrible"
Cons: "If I had gotten my luggage at the end of the flight"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "economy seats...Space!"
Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "lack of service, very unfriendly stewardess"
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Not business treatment, the boarding que, the seats, the food"
Pros: "Good priority boarding"
Cons: "Choice of food was very limited as they were missing the food in catalog."
Cons: "Delay, nothing to eat, poor service !"
Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "We got zero offer of beverages during our flight, even a cup of water! Glad we bought our own. It seemed like one of the flight attendants was in a flight with a customer during boarding."
Cons: "Delay boarding,delay riching destynation,poor crew service"
Pros: "They have the funniest and engaging safety video I have ever seen"
Cons: "1,5 hour delay flight from Brussels to Venice and no service with hot tea or coffee for appologize :("
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "The safety instructions movie was entertaining the first time. The crew was friendly overall."
Cons: "Both my luggage items were lost on the way there and one on the way back. No free food or drink although the flight price is not that low."
Cons: "It was late both going to Prague and coming back. Then on this flight the stewardess tried to tell me that I could not put my bag on the bin on top of my head - she was reserving it for other passengers! Then she realized that her comment might sound racist (so she apologized), then she told me that I could not put my small bag under the chair. Finally I told her that she is certainly looking for a way to get me off the flight to which she answered "I can certainly find something!!!" Cultural sensitivity is needed with these stewardesses who are racist like I don't understand and I was certainly polite!"
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that I landed safely in Brussels."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with seats that didn’t recline, head rests that didn’t move, no in-flight entertainment, no pillows or blankets, and unfriendly and somewhat rude, jaded flight attendants. The most uncomfortable international flight I’ve been on"
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "It was a small plane with only 1 bathroom which was not available for the flight due to long lines. There was no food or even a drink of water without payment. there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "They dropped our connection. Took 3 hours to straighten it out"
Pros: "Long flights are never fun It helped that the crew was helpful and pleasant Food was ok but there could have been more offered It was an 8 hour flight and there was one meal an hour after take off and then just a very small snack and drink an hour before Not enough water was offered throughout the flight"
Cons: "Complete desinfprmation. No announcements and lack of support stuff. Worst airline experience ever"
Pros: "The team was nice, the flight took off on time and arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Even though I'm a star Alliance frequent traveler status holder, and the status grants an extra bag on economy class I was forced to pay for my first checked in bag. Furthermore, since I assumed I'll be getting my checked in luggage for free (as it states on the miles and more website) I didn't pay for it in advance a fee of 35$, meaning they made me pay 65$ in the airport."
Pros: "Nice equip and staff, comfortable and on-time"
Cons: "Veg meal requested but not processed."
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "The fact that we had to wait on the tarmac for a set of stairs to arrive which lasted quite long."
Cons: "The flight was similar to a low-cost airline but I was not informed of this when booking. Uncomfortable seats with very little legroom, and food was only available by purchase. Not worth paying the cost of a regular flight for a 5 hour flight!"
Cons: "There was a very long wait checking in and boarding and there was no kosher food available on the flight."
Pros: "The seats in the plane were amazing. Maybe older but better than the new ones."
Cons: "No infotainment screen"
Cons: "They didn't board me. The airport closes. An I need avisa ti get out. No body mention that to me!!"
Pros: "Did not like airline so much."
Cons: "Staff did not allow access to lavatories when they were serving drinks and the long waits after were ridiculous"
Pros: "I've love Kayak for many years. Booked my ticket directly with Kayak this year. Great service with timely travel updates. First time flying Brussels Airlines. Great planes, wonderful staff and service. Would absolutely recommend Thank you"

Pros: "Very old planes No entertainment Very nice stewardess"
Pros: "On time and quick."
Pros: "Good flight schedules to where I need to go in West Africa. On time generally. Leg room is average or better."
Cons: "The Brussels/Lufthansa economy thinly padded seats are brutal. I was awoken to a sore behind over and over. You can feel the crosswise metal rod underneath. I sympathize with lack of catering options coming out of developing countries, but the economy meal for the red-eye return to Brussels was hard to swallow, too."
Pros: "I eventually got home"
Cons: "I didn't get to sleep as I had to spend hours booking a new flight."
Pros: "The fight was fine. No issues."
Cons: "My biggest disappointment was that no one on the flight was informed that ALL the luggage checked in on the aircraft did not arrive in Budapest. Everyone (about 70-80 passengers) stood for a long while at Budapest Airport for baggage pickup, then went over to talk to Hungarian lost luggage personnel to file their baggage. Why didn't the airline tell us upon check-in, or even announce to the passengers on the aircraft that the bags had not been loaded? This would have saved everyone 10 hours later to try to figure out what happened."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. The food wasn't great and even on a flight that was at 75% capacity they ran out of food options."
