Air Canada is a fine airline. They get alot of flack in Canada at the moment because they have a monopoly, but thier service is pretty good. Also to note that transport Canada has very strict rules so our planes are very safe.

Lynn, I have flown AC often over the past few years (domestically and internationally) and have found the service to always be adequate. Sometimes it is better than others. I don't know if you are flying coach or executive class but I am sure either way they will take good care of you. On a flight from London they will serve dinner after take-off and a breakfast prior to landing. You will also see two movies (no charge for the headsets) but I believe they charge for alcohol in coach.

When the merger between Air Canada and Canadian was going on I found the flight attendants and gate staff to be a little cranky at times. Now that the merger of the two cultures is complete I've found the staff to be quite nice.

Legroom is quite good on international routes. Service, as mentioned before, is up and down. Alcohol should be free on international routes.

Have a good trip!

I personally don't care for Air Canada (in comparison to many I have flown) but they certainly are adequate. If you have a complaint, you will find them less than adequate. JMHO.

On international flights, I have never been charged for a drink and the food is standard airline fair.
