Pros: "Westjet crew are always amazing"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Short and sweet."
Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."

Pros: "NA"
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: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly!"
Cons: "Westjet connect was not available on this plane!"

Cons: "The airplane is small... the seats are very small."

Pros: "Great job overall."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful"

Pros: "Boarding was fast."

Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"

Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."

Pros: "Loved the trip"

Pros: "The flight didn’t get cancelled. We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because it came from Toronto and it needed to be cleaned."

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."

Pros: "Excellent all round. Good price. Nice seats. Excellent staff. Good boarding and disembarking. Highly recommended."
Cons: "It does not have free food and entertainment, but for the price this is acceptable."

Pros: "Had seats in row six -- plus there was room for both our carry-ons!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed taking off from Winnipeg 90 minutes with no explanation given. Made us late getting to Saskatoon and missed our daughter's scheduled ride to pick up our two cars as a result. Had to pay an extra two hours parking at airport, etc etc etc."

Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."

Pros: "The plane was one of their most recent to their fleet of planes. Lots of overhead luggage space and extra leg room. Nice looking on the inside"
Cons: "I like the overall feel to the inside."

Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "A little cold"

Pros: "Great service when checking in. Flight on time and comfortable."

Pros: "I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong. They said it will board at x hour and flight Mie is 4 hrs 20minutes. That makes one think departure plus flight time equals arrival. NO ONE MENTIONED OVE 1 hour taxi time. Getting in four hours late, BTW the rain delay was not really accurate. There was no rain until after we were due to depart! Not enough fuel as loaded so after circling the had to land inYYZ ZTO REFUEL.

Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"

Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "The screens were so old and bad that it would be a total waste of money to pay for the PPV channels. Seats were hard and unconfortable"

Pros: "Westjet crew is fantastic!"
Cons: "Wish it could have been a longer flight to enjoy the WestJet crew’s hospitality longer"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours, missed connectionplus an hour on the tarmac"

Pros: "Smiling faces and humor from the crews."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "It is always an adventure flying into Lethbridge....maybe I should leave it at that. The crew both inside the terminal and on the flight were great, the service is great. It’s a very loud ride....if you have noise triggered headaches....I’m sorry. You’re in a flying cigar tube....up close with every other passenger and the open cockpit is a new experience....but totally fascinating too. The pilot and co-pilot are young but very compitant. The weather has a huge impact on your flight because if there is any wind you will get tossed around and the landing in Lethbridge is more of a roller coaster ride. Let me sum it up like this....if your not good with REALLY loud noise, or claustrophobic, or have any motion sickness issues.....rent a car and drive!!!"
Cons: "Don’t need to get there the 90 mins ahead as AC states is the policy, especially if you are on the 5 am flight because they aren’t. I made that mistake arriving at 3:30 am for my 5am flight and no one showed up til after 4am. It was really annoying to not know that ahead of time."

Pros: "Overall service on the flight."
Cons: "The management of carry on luggage on the flight. It seems that there is no control over the placement of carry on luggage in relation to seat selection. many people entering the aircraft drop of luggage in the bins close to the front of the cabin even when they are sitting at the rear... Simple solution would be to assign luggage based on zone. Zone A to Be Window seat. Zone B to be a centre seat and Zone C to be Aisle seat. Designate a portion of the overhead bin to be A, B and C like the seats. Ensure that baggage is transported to the seat designated."

Pros: "There is no entertainment so why ask.this question repeatedly and I understand on longer flights that is valid but on these flights it is not applicable"

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: "Friendly Staff Flight delayed departing but pilot made up the time ."

Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."

Cons: "Of the four flights I took with WestJet this holiday, 3 were delayed. The flights were frigid. On this flight the agent at the gate was very rude when I asked about checking my bag, lecturing me about the size of the bag and insisting she would have to charge me if it was a full flight, which she said it wasn’t. It ended up fitting just fine in the overhead. Totally soured my experience. I will not use this airline again."

Pros: "I travelled alone with a baby and all the staff at Westjet wete so helpful"

Pros: "Friendly staff 8"

Cons: "Seats were so crammed together. When the person in front mived their headrest back my knees were crushed and I xould not sit comfortably. I am 5'10. Not super tall. Nees more leg room."

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: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."

Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."

Pros: "Clean Plane and pleasant crew."
Cons: "No movies or TV"

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: "Provide complimentary movies West Jet. Parading around tablets to rent for $6 is a bad look."

Pros: "Before taking this flight, I was very nervous because of all the bad reviews on here and other sites. The only good reviews seemed to be by people from Alberta (not really trustworthy, as they seem to support anything that's from Alberta, and note that Westjet is based in Alberta...). But I was blown away by how organized Westjet was and how nice they were. All the flights were on time (I had a few layovers), the staff was helpful....I really have no complaints. Sure, they don't have a plethora of great in-flight entertainment such as movies, etc. But when I fly, I'd rather pay less, have the staff be nice/organized, and just bring a darn book to entertain me. It was a great first flight with this company. I would fly with them again....and I can't remember the last time I said that about any other airline. So do yourself a favor: Don't listen to the bad reviews on here (unless you're obsessed with in-flight entertainment and big-butt first class seats)."
Cons: "The movie and T.V. show selection was bad. But that's not a big deal for me...."

Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"

Pros: "Enjoyed the flight on WestJet."
Cons: "I did not like Kayak, and will not use them again."

Pros: "Crews"
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"

Pros: "Regular seating on this West Jet flight was great, very comfortable with ample room."

Pros: "I liked what my dog liked. She always came out of her hard big kennel wagging her tail. She is small. Her hard kennel is like a hotel room. Iced water. Iced peanut butter. Soft daily blanket to sleep on. The kennel is strapped shut. WJ. Brings me a tag that shows me my dog is on board. I love flying Weat Jet with my dog. Be sure your dog is in a hard covered kennel with lots of room to stretch. Make sure it's strapped solidly shut. Weat Jet gives you plastic straps to do that. DO IT. Don't be lazy about it. Your dog depends on you to make it safe."

"Plus seating"

"There is no in-flight entertainment or food on this flight but for the price it was perfect - direct flight, on time, easy check in and boarding experience"

"You get what you pay for. It was all good."

Cons: "Was very late. Could not sort out simple boarding issues"

Pros: "Flight once it got to Edmonton was ok"
Cons: "Communications with travelers...5 hour delay! Meal vouchers were given with only one restaurant open and maxed out on space and good items...just a bad situation."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Pricing is great"
Cons: "Seats, complimentary food, timing of flight"

Pros: "That it was cheap when we booked it online."
Cons: "Apparently it wasn’t that cheap of a flight after all. We had to pay for our luggage instead of a carry on. And the plane was empty not full with passengers. That to us was a ripoff. Don’t Deceive passengers to fly cheap with you when you’ll make them pay you for carry on when it’s not needed."

"Brand spanking new planes and amazing crews."

Pros: "cabin crew was friendly enough"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour on the tarmac because an engine wouldn't start!"

Pros: "Great crew, fast boarding, nearly empty plane so I had the whole three seat row to myself."
Cons: "The hydraulic pump for the inboard flaps sounded like it was on it's last legs and howled whenever adjustments were made. The cabin pressurization system whistled so loud that I had to put ear buds in to protect my hearing (just on takeoff/landing). Proper maintenance is important!"

Pros: "Comfortable seat with plenty of hip & leg room."
Cons: "Charged $35. for luggage because I didn't know I could go online with the Flair Air website & pay prior to check in. They were friendly and advised me to do this in the future."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash like website and they did not charge $10 for printing off my boarding pass, as no one could with website down. Also, some budget airlines now only allow 40lbs in checked baggage, Looks like they allow 50lbs."
Cons: "Similar problem on the way home, could not book luggage online but could check in. Shop closes at 5 CST so could not call. Even though we told at checkout that it was because of the Christmas volume online, still had to pay Airport (extra) price to check-in baggage. They said I could perhaps get the penalty fee returned if I called in. Told her it's not worth 2 hours on a paid long distance call to get $20 back."

Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "I was told by transat to down load an App. to watch entertainment only to be told by Flair Air that they did not provide the service and that I was given the wrong information. So no TV for 5 hrs."

Cons: "New leaf discontinued their Sunday Halifax to Hamilton flight which was to be my return flight home. They did offer me a full refund if I needed to cancel or to rebook on a different flight but I couldn't make the new dates work so I took the full refund. I booked the flights in December for a flight in Feb and they cancelled half way through January so there wasn't a lot of notice given"

Pros: "Everything about Newleaf was awesome."

Pros: "Everything about Newleaf was awesome."

"Worst airlines ever used"

"Air Canada crews are very professional. I am a long time customer and keep going back becausr of how i am treated"

Cons: "it took a very long time for take off, and de freezing. That should have been done prior because it made our flight very late arriving in toronto"

Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"

Cons: "First plane was newer, 2nd plane was older."

Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"

Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Slight departure delay - no big deal"

Cons: "Air Canada continues to underwhelm me. We left the gate 35 minutes late despite having everyone on board. Then off to de-ice where we sat with a truck outside for ten minutes they did work. It was like they were having a coffee break. The flight and board service was exceptional. Baggage delay of a"

Cons: "Seat didn't recline and touch screen on TV was working but it took some work -- I had to press and hold and the little arrow would fly all over the screen"

Pros: "Nice new aircraft. Very pleasant seating. Great entertainment"
Cons: "New aircraft was late arriving from toronto as usual and the toilet was busted meaning 25 people had to be shed from the flight to allow it to leave and we were then delayed and hour as baggage was transferred to another aircraft. Not AC's best performance."

Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."

Cons: "After a delay on my first flight, I managed to get to the gate with a few minutes to spare and the door open. The desk agent refused to let me board the plane."

Cons: "This leg was so late...I was waiting in Calgary almost 7 hours... they put me on a different flight so I would make my connector in Toronto to Windsor....I originally had a 2 hour window. The second plane was so late, by the time I landed in Toronto, I had 10 minutes. Needless to say, after starting out in Kamloops at 6 am, that was missed also. Last leg missed as well, and had to wait another 4 hours for the last flight out. Just an incredibly frustrating trip"

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: "Flight was late leaving and I had a connection flight - they changed my seat so I could be at the front and get my bag easily and run to get my connecting flight. Everyone was very helpful."

Pros: "Entertainment"
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"

Pros: "Everything else was fine/standard."
Cons: "Not all ground staff are crosstrained on how to accept manual payment for extra luggage and had to wait an extra half hour for the only person who can process a debit transaction. Does not make sense..."

Pros: "The staff - they're always pretty good. The food is also very decent - lot's of jokes about airline food but it's not bad."
Cons: "The seats need some sort of engineering redesign - like maybe they all recline in a row. Airplane seats are never comfortable. Also, for entertainment, they offer USB and AC power which is good, but they should also look into upgrading all the tablets and running linux on them or some operating system with less overhead - the movie displays are really slow and unwieldy."

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: "I was reading so much about how cramped and uncomfortable the seats on Air Canadas 787's, but I don't think their product is any worse than most other economy class products out there."
Cons: "Their "continental breakfast" was a dry piece of banana bread and yoghurt. No jam, butter cheese or other spreads to compliment with your bread. Most disappointing "continental breakfast" I have had on a plane!"

Cons: "The plane was late and caused me to miss my connecting flight and my very important doctor's appointment."

Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"

Pros: "Great staff on plane"
Cons: "Plane was overweight due to the plane carrying luggage from a previous flight. This is poor logistics planning on Air Canada. We were delayed by an hour and waited inside the plane on the tarmac while they removed the extra luggage to reduce weight."

Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment or a boarding pass for my connecting flight"

Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."

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: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."

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."

Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."

Pros: "This flight was cancelled; I don't have any remarkably positive comments about it."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for several hours after we had already boarded (due to maintenance, I think), then was unexpectedly cancelled. Air Canada staff did not communicate with us clearly about the cancellation. We asked several staff members for help and some of them simply walked away; seemed like staff did not know what was going on. We over 90 minutes for in-person assistance, only to be directed to a telephone to re-book our flight. We missed an entire day of our trip to Japan. I'm very disappointed in my experience flying Air Canada."

Pros: "Ease of booking"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Once again, being on time was important to me. Crew members were nice."
Cons: "I wish they would've offered free snacks on this flight given how long it was. It would've also been to nice to have been forewarned about needing to go through security again, as I had a U.S. connection from Toronto. That takes a lot of time, even with a bit of a layover."

Pros: "Good leg room in coach"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, the boarding process was messed up and could not understand the person doing the announcements (was speaking too fast)..."

Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours, half and hour in the airport and another 1.5 hours on the tarmac (probably why I got sick just days after, sitting in the germ tube for that long) Seat did not recline, but was supposed to... No pretzels or peanuts offered like other airlines, just drinks Missed my connecting flight in LAX because of delay, but not after running frantically to my gate clear on the other side of LAX, customer service offered nothing to compensate for the flight we had just missed or any solutions for getting us home."

Pros: "It was such a nice normal flight compared to the other flights on this trip."
Cons: "Still too much carry on to deal with before take off."

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were narrow and sitting in aisle seat you were constantly hit every time cabin crew took trolley up / down aisle. Woke up by cabin crew banging into me."

Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours, however the boarding was efficient and the crew were very friendly."

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."

Cons: "The lady who checked us in caused a major problem with seating. The person I was traveling with was blind and I was her guide. We specifically asked to be seated together and the lady told me we were. I even confirmed with her and she told me yes again. When we boarded we found out our seats were 17 rows apart. I found out that she did this for the connecting flight as well (not as far apart but still not together) this caused a great deal of stress as I couldn't help her when I needed to."

Pros: "This flight ended up arriving at the final destination a day later instead of first thing in morning last thing at night."

Pros: "Having the leg room of the emergency aisle"
Cons: "29f is marked as a window seat, it is not. It's an emergency exit. No outlets were provided so I had nowhere to charge my phone. My on flight entertainment system was stuck in the out away position. I was very sick and the emergency exit had a terrible draft upon landing"

Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."

Cons: "I had a last minute seat assignment (middle seat) in both legs of my flight. AC lost my bags and a day later only retrieved one of them. Still waiting for my second bag."

Cons: "Too many people with more than two bags. You have to force more people to put there bags in the plane storage not overhead. Two many carry-on bags and people had back packs with another bag, some computer bags. It takes too long to board the plan"

Pros: "Super fast and easy process. Glad I flew air Canada"
Cons: "I had to pay for the food for my 4hr flight. It use to be that you were provided the food at no additional cost."

Pros: "I liked the fact that I did not have to pick up me luggage for my connection flight & I have priority sitting and receiving luggage at NYC"
Cons: "You let too many people on with multiple bags and it is a struggle to get them stored in the overhead compartments."

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: "Price good; seat comfort OK."
Cons: "Late to board, late to take off, late to land: no explanations other than "We're third in line.""

Pros: "They had a wheelchair accessible for me and delivered me to my waiting party."

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."
