Pros: "Exit row, bringing on my own booze"
Cons: "Lots of things, the industry is broken"
Cons: "We lost an entire day of our vacation to managing flight changes that were poorly communicated to us. We received a number of mixed messages and our entire group spent hours on hold, on the phone, in line for literally hours at check in, and several mistakes were made with our party’s information."
Cons: "Cancun flight was delayed 24 hours in advance, westjet did not hold connecting flight despite advance notice, being expedited through CBS and reaching gate before departure time"
Pros: "Entire experience went smoothly. Right from when I booked by tickets to checking in at the airport. I was kept informed of changes to the flight itinerary and didn't have any trouble throughout the process."
Cons: "Nothing really could be improved other than typical airline problems that can't necessarily be solved. We did fly out of LAX on our way home and that was more of an unpleasant experience as there is not near enough seating for people waiting to board their flights."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Cons: "We wait on board so long."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Air canada late as usual in coming in and departure.air canada needs to improve their reliability"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Screaming crying children"
Pros: "Easy to change flight same day to one flight earlier."
Cons: "Forced me to check in my (undersized) duffel bag carry on. Then forgot To load the bag onto the plane. WestJet cited a questionable and unlikely reason, that the bag was not loaded due to baggage to passenger weight ratio for safety reasons, even though flight was far from full with multiple empty rows. Plus there was a grand total of only approximately 12 pieces of baggage at the carousel. Also the plane’s auxiliary power generator was broken, which meant no a/c while on the tarmac before and after takeoff. Cabin was warm though not intolerable, however led to delays at both origin and destination airport due to having to wait for an external power supply truck. No in flight service due to supposed turbulence. Which would have been fine, except there really wasn’t much turbulence. Didn’t affect me, but my neighbor’s entertainment system was broken. However, these multiple issues and the broken power generator makes me wonder about what other maintenance issues have been overlooked or not addressed. Most of all I was offended by the clear lack of honesty about my baggage. If there really was a weight limit safety issue despite the plane being far from maximum capacity, then there are much bigger issues with the plane that makes me never want to fly WestJet again. But don’t insult your passengers by lying to cover up your carelessness. My baggage arrived on the following (my original) flight, but that which was delayed by nearly two hours. I’ve flown on United, Delta, Southwest, JetBlue, WowAir, AA, Alaskan, Virgin, American Airlines, United Airways, China Air, EVA, and Air Canada. So far, WestJet has been by far my worst experience."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Cons: "I’ve been at the airport since 9am, it’s almost 9pm now."
Pros: "All it was good."
Cons: "We were 25 minutes late and they did not let us board."
Pros: "It was clean and on time"
Pros: "Always friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "Comfort and legspace"
Pros: "Flight steward did a good job explaining safety procedure for exit door"
Cons: "One hour and ten minutes late. Arriving after midnight with one notification of a 30 minute delay not 70."
Cons: "Should have been home by midnight but ended up landing at 1:45 am."
Pros: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
Pros: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"
Pros: "crew was exceptional"
Cons: "There was not enough room for my carryon for some reason and so I had to sit with my knees up and feet on my bag. Not the worst but there should be enough carry on space for everyone."
Pros: "The efficiency of boarding and de-icing, seating.arrangements and on time arrival plane was clean and my.tomato.juice was cold and delicious."
Pros: "... He was calm, comfortable, and extremely witty.... with a great sense of humour regarding Toronto’s weather in comparison to Curaçao’s. Going home after an awesome vacation always sucks but with WestJet and it’s fabulous crew on board, the transition back to reality really isn’t so bad."
Cons: "The plane was old... no tv screens to see the flight stats like altitude and location. I had a window seat and bought a couple of Ceasar’s so it all worked out just fine.... at the end of the day"
Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "All good! No complaints!"
Pros: "On time. Quick flight. Reliable"
Cons: "Food was cookies and coffee"
Pros: "We boarded on time, and when we were delayed by fog, we were kept informed."
Cons: "We were one hour late landing, couldn't be helped. But, it was a 45 minute wait for our luggage."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, a good selection of entertainment and comfortable seating."

Pros: "The crew was excellent !!! They were helpful and friendly. The plane was packed and they made it pleasant!"
Cons: "Lack of leg room. Fortunately ot was only an hour and ten minute flight."
Cons: "Too small of a plane. Using twin props instead of jets.. Depends on the time of departure. You pay for preferred seating and get jammed into this de Havaland jumper plane. Noisy and then the gate is at the end of the old part of the Calgary airport. Having to board and get off the plane in rainy weather. How bush for both airports. Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"

Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Cons: "Counter checking was not available when I got to airport, and I needed to wait to hand over luggage. Counter crew did not know if I could take an umbrella through security, so I sent it through with luggage and it arrived mangled. I would think crew should know about implications of taking an umbrella."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they never let us onboard even when I was able to make it to the gate before it was closed. After missing the flight the hotel vouchers was provided but we were asked to report in 2 hours (i.e 4AM) so think abou whole night was literally wasted. Finally next flight was 11AM in the morning which I ended up boarding and finally reach Toronto after 8 hours of delay."
Pros: "I had a 5 month old baby and the crew was super smiley and friendly. Also, the flight wasn't full so there was plenty of room. I really enjoyed my experience. Thank you Westjet!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight food and entertainment no used crew helpful and courteous comfort ... seats too close as always but plenty of bin space due to them asking people to check carry on luggage for free ...great idea"
Pros: "The courtesy of the flight crew, and above all, the smooth flight conducted by the Captain.T"
Cons: "There were no specific "hiccups" or negativity pertaining to the flight."
Cons: "The bag of treat I got with my coffee don't remember what it was but it had no taste. I tasted it and discarded the rest."
