immigration was horrible. Long lines and non helpful staff made me miss my flight. I got to the door at 8:20pm after landing at 6:30pm, only to be told I was just taken off the flight. Horrible customer service and no help for connecting flights. About 8 passengers did not make the flight due to slow and incompetent immigration lines
Cons: For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline.
Flight attendant for first class is definitely not a morning person. Oh and the WiFi DID NOT WORK!
Not because the flight is going to Africa we can’t get better service on board
Pros: Friendly attendants; a lot of service available.
Cons: Movie selection was minimal and mostly outdated; food was small portions and less than interesting choices.
Pros: Standard flight
Cons: My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight.
The food selection has been better in the past but due to Covid it is understandable. This particular flight did not have any entertainment and the Air Canada App did not work to access movies.
