I'm just going to keep this report short also because I lost half of my pictures!
My flight was delayed by two hours that day from 6 to 7, but because of the supposed typhoon in Tokyo that day, other flights delayed so we didn't actually leave the gate until almost 8:30 pm.
The information about the delay was posted ahead of time so it did not cause as much of an inconvenience.
FOOD Taking AC before, right after the flight takes off, they usually serve some mixed nuts but not this time. The first meal they serve was the main meal.
Snack: Nissin Cup noodles (not worth taking picture of) Breakfast: Omelettes that were nasty (not worth taking picture of)
The options were beef or fish and I chose fish. The fish was actually tasty compared to the picture but I feel like year after year, the portions are getting smaller and smaller.
The dessert was really good too! For drinks, they have a wide variety available from pop to wine.
The washrooms weren't anything special, some were clean, some were not, but the worst was when one of the passengers went out and opened the door, it smelled like crazy inside the cabin!
In Flight Entertainment
In terms of content, I thought AC's offerings were excellent compared to other Airlines! Although the screen was not as responsive compared to Emirates' and Cathay's, there were a lot of movies and shows to watch! The biggest annoyance for me though is that my Map wasn't working. I like to know where I am and it really bugged me how I had no clue where we were in the world and how many hours left before landing.
Flight Crew I think this is where Air Canada I believe is on the tipping point of 4-star to 3-star. In some flights, you get EXCELLENT flight crew such as my flight from Hong Kong to Toronto last year. The flight crew that time could rival the ones in Cathay or Singapore Airlines. In this flight however, although there were ones who were amazing, it only takes one to ruin all of that. There was one old lady serving who acted like she was wayyy above that job and could not even ask, would you like a coffee? When she was serving drinks, she literally just stopped the cart and looked at us waiting for us to say what we want. Another one also conveniently forgot to serve my row meals.
The best part of Air Canada is: Mood Lighting
They really helped in making passengers fall asleep and wake up!
Tokyo - NRT
Toronto - YYZ
Overall I would rate Air Canada 3.5/5 In terms of North American Airlines, I think it's still the way to go but I am still waiting on the day for Asiana and ANA to come to Toronto because when that happens, I'll never ever have to use Air Canada ever again.
