When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.
Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.
2hours delayed and didn't give notification right away 🤷♀️. I even lost my food to rush to go to the airport. Paid $60 for seafood plate ending just leave it almost halfway on my way to the airport find out the flight was delayed. I wish they have more accurate policy to let passengers knows for any problems about the flight as soon or as early they can

Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Cons: "My 'window' seat had no window! Feeling was claustrophobic"
Pros: "The service by delta employees for this leg of my journey was beyond great. The leg room was above average."
Cons: "Leg room. Never can have enough leg room."
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Pros: "overall flight great,pleasant trip, courtious well informed crew"
Cons: "In flight entertainment screen down"
Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"
Cons: "The landing was somewhat frightening."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and personable. Beverage service was consistent and efficient. Entertainment and free WiFi messaging were great perks."
Cons: "The positives don’t even come close to offsetting the misery of Delta’s seats. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so cramped and uncomfortable. I’m not an abnormally large man - 6 feet 200 lbs - and there was no room for my legs or my shoulders in an “upgraded economy” seat. I fly weekly for work on another major airline, and only took this one in a crunch. But I am quite certain this was my last Delta flight and I’ll be advising others similarly. The service and entertainment aren’t sufficient to mask an awful seat configuration."
Cons: "I didn’t like having to pay for bags and headphones."
Pros: "Service was great. Regular drinks and snacks."

Cons: "delay delay delay"

Pros: "Quick friendly service from crew and captain."
Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."
Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"

Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Cons: "I froze on the way to Las Vegas and there weren't enough blankets."

Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "The process was very quick and easy, from after security the process was smooth and fast."
Cons: "The gate that I was assigned to was a little overcrowded but I believe it could be because of the construction that is happening in the area. Also the security process was a little long."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."
Cons: "Two out of three flights were delayed, customers service of the flight operated by Delta airlines is a nightmare and on top of it 2hours and 40min delayed. No drinks, no snacks, nothing."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "We were traveling with a group of 8, only 3 of us had assigned seats when were arrived and the others were on standby. We asked the attendant at the gate desk if there was any chance that the rest of us on standby could be seated together... HE UPGRADED OUR WHOLE GROUP TO COMFORT and allowed us to all sit with each other. Greatest flight experience I've had and such great staff with Delta. Will fly Delta going forward whenever I have a a chance (flew Southwest the rest of our trip - service, cleanliness, friendliness didn't compare)."
Pros: "We arrived in Las Vegas"
Cons: "Even in first class, it appeared to me that the legroom has been decreased."
Pros: "Good entertainment with games for kids, movies etc."
Cons: "No meals (5+ of flying), need to buy earphones, no place for hand lauggudge"
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Cons: "I was not on this flight as a mistake was made by either Kayak or WestJet. I was not refunded my money which I think is unfair."
Cons: "We paid for transportation to cancun and it didn’t happen. We hope there will be compensation for the lost day. So disappointing."
Cons: "Getting from one flight to the other was a major hassle. How many times do they have to check your boarding pass?"
Cons: "Allow seat selection without a fee. Provide entertainment and more comfortable seats."
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating for a tall person. Cut out the drink and snack service. People can toughen up. Just offer water without using the snack cart."
Pros: "Westjet is just overall awesome"
Cons: "On both legs the seat was super uncomfortable. Really hard."
Pros: "Crew were genuinely always smiling"
Cons: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Great crew and great flight"
Pros: "An hour and 40 minute delay which would've made me miss my connection.bfortunately for me the next flight was delayed so with that and running through the airport to get from one gate to the other I made it... But stressful experience overall."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then at the gate boarding didn’t start till 10 mins before take off. Took off almost an hour after the delayed take off time."
Cons: "I missed the flight because the delay of the anterior connection and custom, and they didn't give me a new ticket, I had to buy a new one."
Cons: "I was told I had time to run to washroom before boarding, and 5 min later the boarding area was empty and I was locked out. Plane was ready to leave me because the guy at desk forgot to tell them I wasn’t there yet. Thankfully I was able to hunt someone down to let them know I was there."

Cons: "There wasn't any food to purchase other than a few snacks. That's just not good enough for a 6 hour flight, Really poor."
Pros: "Food vouchers in Calgary for the 6 hour flight delay due to WesJet computer issues on Toronto plane. $100 credit Bag pick up Minmico at WS Care Centre tried hard to arrange a seat on an earlier flight due to my inquiry; let me call home twice on her phone to advise husband of flight changes. She tried to organize my bag to be put on the earlier flight at the last minute although she was unsuccessful."
Cons: "Passengers are crammed into small seats."
Cons: "Boarding was not enforced by zones. When people line up it is better staff announce zones and force people to not get in line"
Cons: "A little cold"
Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"
Pros: "Westjet is a good carrier with good equipment , friendly, and on time or early"
Cons: "After paying for an upgrade on seating, I found a dog as my neighbour. I am allergic to dogs but was told to sit down and when plane was full I may find another seat. I sat in my original seat in 14F for the trip so the $60.00 upgrade was wasted and told it is not refundable"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seats were too narrow, plane was changed to what looked like a smaller plane. Everything else wasn’t WestJet’s fault. Red eye flight and jerk behind me left his light on the whole flight and giy beside me kept rib checking me, preventing me from sleep. By the time plane landed I had been up 23 hours."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight Late by Over 1 Hour due to deicing which they should have built into their boarding time schedule and two passenger did not show up causing further delays."
Cons: "- Booked using points & not offered the option to pre-order a meal - only non perishable food choices on board - flight delayed, crew at gate not well informed"
Pros: "My first trip started on a poor note; I got to airport about an hour before boarding, only to find out that my flight was rescheduled from 9:30am to about 6:15pm ( or so) on that same day without prior notice. I went up to the counter and asked for confirmation for the switch and inquire if there was an issue, which may have affected my original flight. Turned out that the change was due to weather conditions at Toronto (makes sense). I had suggested that it would have been nice to receive some sort of notification, before starting that day way too early and inconvenience of going to pickup my car from the airport parking, only to come back again. The attendant sympathized with my plight and compensated me with a lunch voucher (which was nice of him and WestJet). Matter was resolved; I came back to catch my flight and the trip was wonderful :)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight was rescheduled without receiving any notification from Westjet."
Pros: "The Wet jet staff were very accommodating and lovely. The on board staff and on ground staff did their best to be very accommodating during very problematic weather issues related to Toronto."
Cons: "We were given wheels up time twice due to delays in Toronto for freezing rain. I ended up changing my flight to a direct from Calgary to London. The amount of time spent in the airport was definitely a negative."

Cons: "Sitting on edge wondering if the flight was going to take off as so many flights were delayed or cancelled."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Internet was faulty"

Pros: "I am mute and the staff was generally good at accommodating my communication methods. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight experience ever)"
Cons: "Staff updated my status to Deaf passenger without my knowledge. I am not Deaf, my hearing is fine and I understand English perfectly. I have no problem understanding the safety messaging. I am mute, I can't talk, that's all. I try not to misrepresent myself so that I don't take resources from Deaf people, so this frustrated me. also, I guess WestJet changed food policy again, now MUST pre order food, because no food was available on the flight if not Plus."
Pros: "The overall experience on my westjet trip was great. Everything west jet does - and all the groups in the airport are fantastic !"
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Pros: "The West Jet reps everywhere were calm, cool, and friendly. I thought they were terrific. In Edmonton, the women from West Jet did their best to help and keep the waiting disgruntled passengers informed. In Kelowna, when I discovered my luggage was still in Calgary, the West Jet rep was cheerful and helpful. How could I possibly be annoyed?"
Cons: "Wrong. I ended up in Kelowna."
Pros: "Westjet service and staff are friendly and helpful as always."
Cons: "The delay waiting to have the plane deiced before departure was a bit of a pain, but I also know this is out of control of the airline or the airport for that matter. It is something that can happen with the weather, so we just have to be patient."
Cons: "Delayed in taking off and inaccurate information provided about the landing of the flight."
Pros: "I flew through the air in a metal container across the country in the time it would have taken me to drive 400 km, so that's pretty neat."

Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"
Pros: "Fortunately the plane was not crowded at 9pm and they made up for the 15 minute delay and arrived on time. Everything was pleasant and as expected."
Pros: "I am eternally grateful to both the airport and flight staff for letting my boyfriend and I catch this plane. We arrived very late to the airport, very close to the cut off time, and the staff let us try and catch the plane regardless. It was my mothers birthday dinner that night, so I am extremely grateful they let us through to try and make our flight. Thanks WestJet!"
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Regular seating on this West Jet flight was great, very comfortable with ample room."
Pleasant flight. Everyone was on the same page. Efficient boarding and nice checkin experience. Bags were delivered to baggage claim quickly in Las Vegas.
Aside from the 5-6 texts for the flight changing the flight was pretty comfortable
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "No gate when we landed."
Cons: "Unexplained 3 hour delay. They couldn't be bothered to automatically rebook me to an earlier flight (other airlines do this). They also couldn't put me on standby over the phone?! I had to wait for someone to arrive at the gate and then get on standby."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "The entertainment on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew and seats super comfy"

Cons: "Got there safe!"
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Pros: "At Least the Staff was keeping us updated."
Cons: "No good-faith gesture was offered for the long delay. My associate and I completely missed an important dinner meeting with the rest of our team! Our team takes this trip each year and we have always drove. It' short and I then have transportation when I arrive. This year we decided to fly because it's even easier. This particular flight from Phoenix to Vegas took us longer then if we were to drive and I then spent more in RideShare. I won't be doing it again next year."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Seats were narrow"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers brought hot food on board at Dallas. McDonalds and KFC odours were overwhelming for first 30 minutes."
Cons: "When I️ went to the gate to Ben seated they said there was overbooking, but 10 min before departure they allowed me to fly"
Pros: "Oh the crew was very pretty. They spent more time on themselves their hair their make up and on their phones than they did the entire first class. Check our flights and miles. We fly AA ALOT for ourselves and other. WCB4350 Shipman. We don’t complain ever. But when you spend what we do and only just get your first drink with your dinner in the air is utterly ridiculous. Never got a clean up or a second drink. Had to interrupt the glam squad from their phones and make up bringing them our dirty glasses and trash asking for a second drink. Not impressed with this crew at all! Normally AA IS TOP KNOTCH. So it sets the standard that we’ve been accustomed to however complete and total letdown on this flight"
Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time."
Pros: "Customer service people were nice."
Cons: "American Airlines broke my carry on luggage handle and was told that I couldn’t claim it even though I was told that I had to check it in. Airplane was cramped, felt really uncomfortable"
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."
Pros: "The crew for the most part was nice."
Cons: "It just wasn't a comfortable flight and then a extremely bumpy ride all the way from LA to NYC."
Cons: "Boarding complete chaos. Looked like Bangladesh. Very unorganized. No airline has ever explained why they do not board from the window seat out. Would reduce much confusion. Too much to handle."
Pros: "Good preferred seat."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The door team was all over the place creating a chaos at the time for boarding the plain. I've notice several people in front of me were complaining due to the boarding dynamics. (Not smooth boarding)"
Cons: "Seat 17F is very short on leg room for a 6 foot man. Flight attendants didn't care and rough landing; pilot needs more practice."
Cons: "Being led to pay to select seats on flight that was only 50% full"
Pros: "Plane was clean; staff professional; no issues."
Pros: "None at all. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Very poor customer service. Flight attendant name Daryl H. Colored male , declined to help me put my carry on luggage onto the over head bin. Instead he scolded me not to bring carry on luggage if I can't put it in. The bin wax too high for me . I'm 4'10 inc tall and unable to reach the over head bin. And Daryl H, was sitting on my paid chair. A nice passenger offer his help and put the carry on to the bin. I will not book this airline again."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, gate changed, no free food"

Pros: "On time flights."
Cons: "Middle seat."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Then we all were told to re-ticket at customer service. Waited on the line for 2 hours to get a stand by ticket for the next flight. Luckily I was the second from the last that got the seat, or else I would have to wait for the next flight which would take even longer than just drive to Vegas myself. I asked customer service to accommodate me with some food coupon since I had to wait for the next flights...they said they don't have that kind of accommodation, really?!!!"
Pros: "The crew was nice enough , app updates are nice"
Cons: "To many technical issues with this airline , everytime for the last 2 years there's a mechanical problem or issue with a plane blocking runway . Honestly I've never been on time with an American Airlines flight . I could have taken a bus and gotten to my destination faster, communication is poor , had to walk from terminal 4 to 6 because they have gates at both but didn't post the correct terminal to my ticket , so I walked from 4 to 6 ... Then the delay made me walk back to 4 because of a gate change . Then we waited on the plane for another half hour . All in all its not really the staff but more so the actual operation of the airline that I'm not willing to work with anymore ."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and attentive. Smooth flight and clean."
Pros: "Professional attitude of the crew"

Pros: "Crew was reasonable, seats not great."

Pros: "Crew is nice."
Cons: "Had to wait 15 mins because our gate was in use. Seats are old and hard."
Pros: "I liked having an empty seat next to me?"
Cons: "As a big guy, the person in front of my was reclining, and literally dug into my knees. I'm 6'3" so I'm not like abnormally large, but yeah. If there was someone sitting next to me this flight would have been absolutely horrendous. Also, no radio? No TV, what is this? the 80s? Earlier?"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "As wheelchair handicapped female why put me in a window seat? near constantly screeming and crying and unruly children? Most unhappy and stressful experience..."

Cons: "Thought they were a well oiled machine."
Pros: "It is already bad to travel overnight. When flight is late, that makes it really bad"
Pros: "Hassle free and easy. Since our airport arrival was ddlayed by rush hour traffic, the check jn process was made easier by the Air Transit attendant's assistance to be processed through fast track security clearance."
Cons: "The Food and Entertainment raiting above should be understood as Not Applicapble"
Cons: "2 hour delay with very little communication as to why. Plane was way too big for a short domestic flight (boarding and departure took longer than the flight itself). Parked at far end of the airport so 15+ mins walk to arrivals. All around one of the worst flight experiences I’ve had in years!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfy seats, in flight entertainment and charging stations at every seat"

Cons: "Departure delay. Delay on receiving luggage. Aircraft is not so clean."
Pros: "Crew professional despite longest flight of my life"
Cons: "The personal screens weren’t working, not even the USB chargers! We knew right away upon boarding but crew likely lied to us telling us they would come on above 10,000ft. They never did, electrical problem apparently. Unacceptable on a transatlantic flight. To add insult to injury some teenager got separated from his parents in the confusing Rome terminal, likely in the bathroom. Was 30 minutes late boarding and because his suitcase was on board we couldn’t leave until they found him or his bag. We therefore missed our takeoff window and left 70 minutes late! So a 9 Hour flight with no infotainment or WiFi or charging became a 10 Hour flight from hell with terrible food to boot."

Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "Flights were grounded due to high winds, then AT had problems replacing crews coming to the end of their max duty hours. Flight scheduled to depart 6pm. Flights were grounded until 7pm. It took AT another 4hrs to find new pilots and board. We could have driven to Montreal faster!"
Pros: "Didn’t get to use my tickets"
Cons: "I will never again book a flight with just fly. Poor customer service. Refuse to cancel or partially refund flight within allotted time the airline allowed. Had to fly earlier as brother health condition worsened"
Pros: "The crew were professional and helpful. Most impressive! It was clear that they genuinely cared about the comfort of the passengers."
Pros: "Personnel serviable et professionnel"
Cons: "One jour late on schedule"
Pros: "I hope the Air Transat stop cheeting and the coverlet punish it"

Pros: "The crew were very nice and tried to help."
Cons: "Boarding was long. Waiting in the plain fir over an hour d’oies open a/c not working and waiting to decide how many cases of peppers they should load. At landing we were told we should be thankful cause it could of been much longer. Like it’s ok to be late. I’ve had better flights with you."
Pros: "Great service, decent food, wonderful staff!"
Cons: "Flight delay, seemed it could have been avoided. Whenever you hear technical reasons it becomes non descriptive and reasons for waiting another 60 min are questionable."
Pros: "The Air Transat crew and ground staff at the airports were friendly, considerate, helpful, smiling and excellent representatives of Air Transat. I am a large man, nearly 2 meters tall, with a history of two separate incidents of Deep Vein Thrombosis resulting in Pulmonary Embolisms (documented in a letter from my physician). My medical condition can be exacerbated by reduced circulation due to prolonged periods seated in a confined space, and in a worse case scenario, this can be life threatening. The ground staff and flight attendants listened to this concern, and found seating situations that allowed more leg room in the emergency exit aisle on the flight over from Montreal to Marseille. On the way back, the flight attendants gave that emergency row to other passengers (allowing me to have the three seats behind the emergency row seats, albeit with les leg room, but room to spread out and move my legs). Very kind! and attentive! Food was good, and the offers of food and drink were frequently made."
Cons: "Like all planes, I find the seating is too tight for anyone over average size. That said, I think Air Transat's seating is a bit more generous that other airlines."
Pros: "We had a issue at boarding and nobody could help Nobody is in charge, they use this technique to avoid helping anyone. You go from manager to manager and they claim tht the person who could have helped is not here and you can t reach her on the phone either So they didn t help us! Pathetic technique. After the scandal in Ottawa. I am not surprised this airline has such a bad reputation. I don t recommend it. Also blankets and headsets cost 9 dollars each. Thanks for putting strong AC!!!"
Pros: "I already commended your crew member Trieste, for her outstanding help and consideration."
Pros: "It was a mediocre flight, what can I say: minimal leg room, right isle spaces and not nearly enough room to be comfortable. The in flight accommodation was a nice touch. No snacks but free soda/juice/water provided"
Cons: "Nearly zero personal space. The leg room was so minimal for a woman of 5'6 that when the lovely person in front of me reclined I had no choice but to invade the person next to me. There were no snacks provided and overall an uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "The Check in staff was very helpful, professional and friendly. Cabin crew very friendly. Food is good."
Cons: "No entertainment. The tv was not seen properly from my seat. I had 7 hrs with no entertainment. One of the toilets was not working. The other needed the door to be repaired."
Pros: "Good service!"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude (young brunette Quebecoise). She really needs a lesson in customer service when she represents a company as reputable as Air Transit."
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful, and when we ran into problems they were confident and professional."
Cons: "The plane was an old Airbus 310 with no entertainment systems in the seat backs. Instead, it was equipped with the old-style system where everybody watches the movies on a few screens. The choice of movies was poor: the "feature film" was a nature documentary made by Disney where they gave the animals names and talked about their feelings. The food on the flight was awful. We were told there would be be a choice of chicken, beef, or vegetarian noodles. But apparently there were only 5 chicken meals placed on the plane, so the only non-veg option was the beef. This consisted of 3 small pieces of beef in a gravy, and a pile of mashed potatoes with an unfamiliar texture. It was also oozing some sort of orange fat. Not very appetizing. Due to weather, the flight was unable to land in Montreal, and had to be diverted to Plattsburgh, NY. I don't blame Air Transat for this. We sat on the tarmac for 2.5 hours in Plattsburgh, but at least we had air conditioning, and the crew served us water. (This is better than the planes that were diverted to Ottawa that day.) We were assured by the crew that, while we surely missed our connections (to Toronto in my case), the Air Transat agents were well aware of the situation, and they would rebook us and we would arrive home that night. Upon arrival in Montreal, nobody from Air Transat seemed aware of the situation. I was with ~50 other passengers trying to get to Toronto, and the agents had no idea what to do. They sent us to a gate, and told us there was a flight leaving at 9 pm. (The flight was originally scheduled for 5:45, but, again, I don't blame them for the weather.) When we got to the gate at 8:45, there were no Air Transat agents anywhere. Passengers became agitated, and we tried looking for Air Transat agents at other gates, again with no luck. Some passengers even tried calling the Air Transat call center, but they couldn't get through. There was one Air Transat employee present, but when she saw the group of 50 of us, she hid behind the door to the jetway. (She said she was off duty.) By 9:30, some agents arrived. They were just as confused as us about the flight, and did not know what was going on. In particular, they thought there should be a flight crew present, but they couldn't find any. Eventually, at 10 pm, they announced that the plane would be leaving at 12:30 am for Toronto. Restaurants were closed at this point, of course, but at least a bar was open. By 1:30 am we eventually departed, after waiting for passengers to arrive from Ottawa. I have never seen so many sleeping people on a plane before it even took off. Total transit time from when I boarded in Barcelona to landing in Toronto was 20 hours."
Pros: "Not individual screens on every seat... i am traveling with 2 young kids so they need some entertainment to keep them calm during a 4 hour flight. My kids are in the Kids club... no difference in whatsoever.... no free chips...no nothing.... I bought chocolates and they made me pay for. The cabin AC was way too cold my daughter was freezing. I asked a blanket for her they told me it was $11. 00 O said ok fine. They forgot me after 45 minutes she remembered and she felt bad so she gave the blanket for free."
Pros: "the aircraft was much more comfortable than my seat with WOW air. and the monitor with the entertainment was actually working (was not on WOW air) and I had ear phones which worked with it so I actually could watch it. They gave us free water twice while we were delayed. WOW air charged for their bottle of water!"
Cons: "Most passengers could not take advantage of the entertainment on board. The steward/stewardesses did not come around and offer ear phones even at a price. I pressed a call button to get some water for to take a pill... three times and no one came. I would have gone back to where they were seated and asked personally but the seat belt sign was on... I did not sense there was any tumbulence but who knows. I flew from Paris to Montreal with an hour and a half layover in Montreal so I can connect to a flight to Toronto. Not the airlines fault ... our flight from Lyon was delayed.. but they (WHO the Canadian government) insisted my baggage had to be collected from the Lyon flgiht by myself and re-checked in for the Toronto flight, and thus I had to race across the huge airport to do that. Then I had to go through customs and then security (line ups of about two hundred people and waits of about 20 minutes) . Then I was supposed to catch my connecting flgiht at Gate A67 ... that is the 67th gate of 68 gates at this terminal. By the time I got out of the security line i was hearing the ominous " final boarding call for Air Transat Flight 276 to Toronto"!!!! I am 62 year old semi-fit woman with two bags running the posted "8 minute walk: to that 67th Gate. I made it with three winded young people who similarly were begging the Air Transat staff not to take off without the others of us who were still in the security line but booked on that flght. They waited. Then we could not get clearnance to land in Toronto... and so... we were delayed going to Toronto to... and $30 in parking later... my son got me home. Surely the Montreal Airport needs and "express line" through customs and security for people needing to catch connecting flghts or any flght about to take off! Also the Airport should be providing a trolly or something for passengers who have to board planes in those gates so very far from the security entrance to A gate!!! i am happy to walk it when I was not time pressured but in situations like this one... running could cause someone in poorer health a heart attack."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "No space between seats and food could be better when flying over 8 hours."
Pros: "booked the flight based on price and we got more than we paid for. We live in Michigan and could have flown from Detroit, but by driving to Toronto we paid literally half of what some others paid who flew from Detroit. Also found a hotel which offered free parking for 10 days (our return flight got in at 9pm so we needed to stay overnight in Toronto anyway. had plenty of legroom (choose the rear with 2-seats across), food was decent."
Cons: "video screens were small and only over the center row of seats, so it was difficult to see."
Pros: "Super new and clean planes. Crew extremely nice and the best entertainment package included!"
Pros: "Non-stop Lots of movie choices Two meals/snacks were free On time departure"
Cons: "Unable to confirm return flight online from Paris Seating is just soooooo cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag that all other airlines allow as carry on"
Pros: "Options plus upgrade respected during boarding. Food served during flight was decent. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Few update announcements at gate. Almost 2 hours onboard before being offered a beverage. Too many interruptions in-flight (i.e. snack, drink, meal, customs forms, headsets, another snack, captain announcements). Cabin lights turned on and snack served 2 hours before landing (corresponding to a time of midnight at the departure airport)."
Cons: "First plane was newer, 2nd plane was older."
Pros: "Fairly new plane... new and much improved entertainment system..."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to mechanical issue sitting on the tarmac."
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Made the connection (no luggage) as signified in the SMS notice of a delayed departure but they had given preferred seat to stand by. No problem just another 90 minutes after a previous 3 hour delay out of Calgary. Not impressed!"
Cons: "This was a direct flight from DFW to Vancouver. 3.5 hours. Upon arrival in Vancouver we were paged to baggage claim and informed that our bags were taken off the plane and would arrive later in the night. Problem was, we were leaving on a cruise at 4:30PM. Our bags had two cruise luggage tags on each bag. When our bags were delivered to us 2.5 days later in Ketchikan, Alaska - The cruise tags had been torn off our bags. There were a minimum of 8 vacant seats and corresponding luggage not on this plane. I believe Air Canada had a chance to load more cargo and removed our luggage to make more room for the cargo. I will never fly this airline again. I had nothing good to say to anyone on our cruise regarding this airline. Terrible passenger service. The guest services said that 16 bags were delivered in Ketchikan from Air Canada."
Pros: "Flight was great. Check in not so."
Cons: "On March 18, 2018 Joanne, Kevin, and Allison Sheridan were booked to go from SYD to YYJ and only Kevin took off. We went to the airport and my daughter Allison was too anxious to get on as she had to leave her father behind. After she calmed down we went to get on the flight and the lady at the check in, (Onwsha) said it was too late and we could leave the next day. She changed my tickets on the computer and said if we came on Monday, March 19th there wouldn't be a charge but if it was any other date it would be $150.00 per ticket/person. When I arrived to check in on March 19th I was charged the $300. I spoke to Sharon Smith who was with Air Canada Customer Service Coordinator and I explained I was told something different by the customer agent. I told her if I knew that and I was told by Onwsha I would have went on the flight on March 18th but would not have checked the bags and just taken carry on luggage as my husband was still at the airport and he could bring them when he came over. Sharon Smith said there was nothing she could do and we had to pay the $300.00. It really has left a bad taste for me with Air Canada especially how many seats were spare and I was told something different from Onwsha. Thank you for your time. If any other details are needed feel free to contact me."
Cons: "Air Canada Check In staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. My flight was at 7pm and I arrived at 6:10pm because I got stuck in traffic. I had already checked in online, all I needed was to get my baggage tags and drop my bag off. Instead of telling me where to print out my tag, they made me stand in line to talk to the check in staff at the counter. By the time I got to the counter, it was 7:40 and there was zero chance of my bag being checked in for this flight with the staff showing me attitude. When I told him that all I was here before the drop-off time and all I wanted were tags and that his other staff just told me to line up without helping, he just said "you can buy another ticket for the next flight or leave your bag here and pick it up when you return from your trip." Honestly, the worst customer experience I have ever had!"
Pros: "The plane was clean and seemed very new. The boarding process was streamlined in an organized way. The entertainment system was okay."
Cons: "The plane was a huge B787 Dreamliner and the airline didn't allot enough boarding time to accommodate the hundreds of passengers that needed to get on and settle in. Because of this, the flight was delayed by almost an hour and many people missed their transfers. It seemed like an unreasonable lack of foresight to schedule only the standard half hour before takeoff to board ~300 passengers.On top of that, the flight was roughly four hours long (five with the delay) and no complementary food, even a small snack or two, was offered. The seats in coach were made to be decently comfortable padding-wise, but I felt more packed in like a sardine with the people next to me than on other planes. The flight attendants seemed extremely stressed and overworked, and I couldn't blame them."
Pros: "Movies available. Food available for purchase."
Cons: "It was crowded in the back of the aircraft. Many vacant rows were available, but my advance check in and seat change / upgrade was not available on line. I would have paid to have moved up to an un-occupied section of the aircraft if I could have. My mistake. I should have got up and walked around looking for these vacant seats. Despite the captain announcing that WIFI Internet was available for purchase. There was no WIFI on this aircraft. I am a tech guy. The flight attendant said just use your credit card. NO there was no WIFI available."
Pros: "Great food and good space for economy"
Pros: "Plenty of space. Attentive crew. Food was acceptable."
Cons: "My seat was wet and i had to wait quite a while for it to be rectified. I asked to sit on a crew seat at the back of the plane and was told that i would break it. I found this rather disgusting . Seating plan is very crammed like sardines"
Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"
Pros: "The hot dinner was good"
Cons: "The pudding was poor, it was just a wrapped cookie. The movie selection was terrible! Most of the films were very old!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"
Pros: "Constant supply of food"
Cons: "No entertainment on seats"
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "Baggage hasn't arrived after 45 minutes"
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Cons: "We had no tv couldn't charg my cell no one told as y it wasn't working"
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled after already waiting through a 3.5 hour delay. The inbound flight was delayed due to weather, and as a result, there was no crew available for our flight. This left us stranded at Pearson at 3am with no Air Canada agents available for assistance. After a two hour wait on hold with Air Canada customer service, we were told the earliest flight we could get on was two days later. Unacceptable. We ended up having to buy tickets with WestJet. Weather delays are understandable. Not having sufficient customer service agents available for assistance nor having enough crew on call is inexcusable and incompetent."
Pros: "I had a wonderful service. The airline changed flight for me when my scheduled flight delayed. So I could arrive in Vancouver on time. Thanks."
Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."
Pros: "I didn't fly from Calgary to Vancouver."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to fill up sons water bottle as we had to empty it before we went through security and I forgot to refill it. Flight attendant was very rude and made a big deal out of having to fill it. Just felt her reaction was over board and quite uncalled for."
Cons: "The check in counter was a mess. Though we had checked in online, it still took forever to check in at the counter as the machines could not print out the bag tags, then there was another line up for dropping off the bags. Those machines also could not read foreign passports though Canadian ones were fine. So we had to wait for our friends who were from overseas. The stewardess doing the announcements went so fast you could not hear her except for a few words, and she had a very strong French accent so it sounded like she was speaking in French all the time. But at least she was better than the pilot, whom we could not hear at all. The only word we heard was "cloudy"."
Pros: "No issues with flight. Went as expected."
Cons: "Online checkin the night before the flight. The Web app has some major problems. Entering/selection of dates did not work well. Took much trial and error to get data entered/selected."
Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"
Cons: "Video display didn't accept touch input so didn't work at all."
Pros: "It was good experience."
Cons: "Snacks could be improved."
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "We lost one of our bags"
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff, fuss-free boarding, good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Plane could have been slightly cleaner (eg replace old, ratty in-flight magazines). Food was reasonable but a bit bland."
Cons: "Hair in my breakfast and they wouldn't give me another meal also by the time they reached me all the options but the overlooked egg was available they didn't explain just dumped the meal on my tray table and when I asked for the other option was told straight out no... I've flown on many airlines and that was by far the most foul meals I've ever had budget airlines do better won't fly ac anytime again.... My original flight was delayed 5 hours to connect so I was transferred to another flight and my bags didn't make it so I went 4 days without luggage also"
Pros: "Entertainment system is good"
Cons: "Crew was an hour late arriving at airport so flight was delayed. No food, not even a snack, on a 5+ hour flight is not acceptable."
Pros: "Everything about the flight went very smoothly. The take off was right on time the boarding was quick and efficient and all the workers on the plane were very kind."
Cons: "Only thing I had a issue with was my headphone jack was a little loose so I had to hold the headphones in a certain spot so I could hear all the audio."
Pros: "Comfort of seats and spaciousness of the plane"
Cons: "Agent off loaded me and only me from return flight with zero reason. Second flight I was put on was delayed 2 hours. Sat for 5 hours in the airport for a 1 hour domestic flight. Customer service was terrible. Emailed Air Canada 4 days ago and have yet to recover any response."
Pros: "The flight attendant in Business class was absolutely fantastic. Very friendly, attentive, and fun. She made the trip special."
Cons: "Business were regular seats, but for such a small plane I understand."
Pros: "service staff were nice"
Cons: "didn't like that bags cost USD25 extra. USD10 should be the cost."
Cons: "Why is it that Air Canada is the only airline that makes you take off your earphones during take off and landing? Are they stuck back in the 1950's?!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable..."
Cons: "Plane windows were really dirt... staff was a bit rude..."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well. Only watched one movie so not sure in selection. Nice to find entertainment included in the ticket price."
Cons: "Plane was 50 minutes late leaving Toronto, luggage took between 30 to 40 minutes to come out at Vancouver airport. Three flights were assigned to one carousel, while a nearby carousel had only one flight assigned to it and was not yet in use, presumably because the flight had not arrived and another nearby carousel was broken. Why not have at least one other flight use the unused, working carousel?"
Cons: "The biggest problem was a late arrival resulting in missing the gate and need to wait a hour on the taxiway until a gate cleard."
Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"
Cons: "Return flight delayed. No Reason given"
Pros: "I got to where I was going."
Cons: "Air Canada acts like a European low fare airline when it is actually just a major domestic carrier that nickels and dimes for everything and charges full cost."
