Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Customs at AUA"
Cons: "After this experience with the airline Avianca it will be sometime until I travel with them again. Flights were delayed to my connecting flight and to NY. The airline personnel were barely communicative and seemed like they did not know what they were doing. I asked them twice if I was able to catch my originating flight to New York from Bogota after seeing it was also delayed on Google... but after waiting and standing for hours once I arrived the gate, they told me that I was kicked off my flight for a later one 7hrs later... no sign of compassion nor any attempt for accommodation.. truley a sad experience as i travel a great deal to Centeal Amarica.."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay to leave Roatan"

Cons: "2 delays. Arrived 2 hours later than I should have."
Cons: "Storm during flight"
Pros: "Decent plane. On time."
Cons: "Avianca overbooked the flight. We were put on standby with a 7month old baby. They were going to have us wait until the entire flight had checked in to see if any volunteers stayed. After I insisted, they checked us. Basically had us go thirty a miserable time for their mistake."
Pros: "The staff on the plane were extremely friendly and quick to assist when needed. Always checking in and making sure our flight was smoothly and we were happy."
Cons: "There was only one option for a snack on the way back after breakfast (Spanish quiche) and I wish there was another option for those that do not enjoy quiche."
Cons: "After one hour waiting to claim my bag, mine was the first to show up, but it was open. The airline staff broke the lock and took the jewels I had inside. Now, the airline is not assuming the responsibility for what they stole from me."
Pros: "Served a snack and had usb charging in headrest."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable and crew more friendly with Spanish speaking people."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane was late. Airport is the worst ever. My seat did not tilt back and staff was rude"
Pros: "very nice experience nice flight food and beverages"

Pros: "the TV!"
Cons: "the food and the selection of movie"

Pros: "All, except the entertainment. It's wasn’t nothing to watch"
Cons: "The entertainment. Poor."
Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "The staff in Bogota were oh so friendly compare to my previous experience in GYE. Same as when coming down from SJO. Beautiful. Keep it up! Friendly atmosphere just a delight, like it should be."
Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone! Pura Vida! Dave"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The entertainment system never work during he whole flight."
Cons: "Falta de respeto a los miembros Diamante."
Pros: "Excellent flight great flight attendants served alcoholic drinks with a delicious meals. I was greeted ny the crew when boarding and exiting the aircraft. Avianca was a wonderful experience."
Pros: "I like the crew, very friendly"
Cons: "I don't like the food"
Pros: "We just spent the last 3 weeks in South America including Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos. We took a total of 9 flights with Avianca including a couple of 50-55 minute connections. Flights were consistently on time and service was great. Amazingly, our luggage made it too despite the short connections. Service was very good. The crew was pleasant and they were always serving drinks and food/ snacks even on short flights although food is usual coach fare. All in all a very positive experience. Most of the North American airlines could learn a thing or two regarding punctuality, service and baggage handling."
Pros: "Good food and good service"
Cons: "Our flight was expected to arrive in San José at 3.55 pm with only one conecting flight in Bogotá. We arrived yo San José at 10.30pm with 1 extra stop un San Salvador and delayed flights un Madrid and Bogotá"

Cons: "Both flights were delayed! And one was a 6 hour delay! It was a bummer"
Pros: "The airline gives a good service to travel, always on time that's really good, but their staff don't have a good costumer service, food and entertainment is pretty good!!!"
Cons: "Some of the staff were so rude, specifically a guy was so rude and mean when a lady asked him for help to place his baggage on the compartment, he was so aggressive like mad because she asked for help and that kind of attitude feels so disappointed of them"
Flight was canceled due to damaged aircraft
Another good flight newer plane therefore better seats. The landing was excellent!

Pros: "There was an available seat next to me"
Cons: "I had to walk from one end of Minneapolis airport to the other end all within 35 mins to catch a connecting flight, tram was not in service. Not fun!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Kat and the other stewards were very friendly."
Cons: "Maybe the option for free upgrade to first class if flight is not full??"
Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Old airplane. Everything was worn out and stained. Entertainment system is ancient. Economy seats are so small you can barely get in and out."
Pros: "The Crew on this flight was great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3+ hours and Delta kept pushing the delay out further without giving any updates as to why it was so delayed, and when I inquired at the Delta desk at the gate the woman was very rude to me as she snipped that it was a mechanical issue."
Pros: "Good snacks"
Cons: "I got bumped from this flight a couple of hours before departing."
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "Extra leg room was great"
Cons: "Entertainment system was flickering"
Pros: "Enjoyed the ease of check in the spacious gate and the cleanliness of the planes cabin"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "Never got ticket or email or booking number. Called my bank they said charge still pending. I asked if they could cancel. Bank said yes. Told them to cancel and rebooked throught Delta website. Got eticet. But charge was not cancelled. At airport I had 2 tickets. Working with bank. Today gate agent gave me 1st ticket number. Used Kayak and delt never had this issue. Email not changed or misspelled."
Cons: "No eticket or booking number recieved."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Had to pay for bags"
Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."

Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."
Cons: "Signage is terrible. Delta sign out side is obscured as and too small. Construction is no excuse for the confusion. Delta is not readable on the overhead signs and airport is too dark at night. Everything is hard to find."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "to their Diamond Medallion customers"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "We flew 1st class and this was out first time on a 767. Wow! Amazing seats that recline as well as foot rests that extend. USB and electrical outlets, bigger tray tables, massaging seats, etc. I had a special meal request and the flight attendant was very professional and pleasant about it."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great!"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
I travel with a Service Dog. Have a relief area please on both sides of security. With fake grass got the dogs and washing area so it will not smell of hog urine.
Cons: "Some passengers bring two or more big carry ons and the airline should police its own rules better."
Cons: "If we were not forced to pass through Costumes and take our Luggages and go through security again, although we were in transit for couple of hours only. I lost my pierce and no one helped"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "A better movie and the check in was grueling. They did not have enough staff and one person spent 30 minutes helping someone repack at the check-in desk while we all waited. Pretty unacceptable."
Pros: "Excelente service both of my flights departed on time and arrived early to the destination!! For basic economy there was great seat space, entertainment and multiple meals for 4+ hr flight with alcohol included!! Will be flying with Copa again!"
Cons: "The seats were fabric instead of pleather."
Cons: "Food was bland and simple (Aeroméxico offers slightly better, would look to model after amazing Air Asia setup) and would add more movies to the inflight entertainment system. But overall, all good!"
Pros: "Food and drink were offered which was unexpected for such a short flight. Not the best but appreciated"
Cons: "A bit more space. A bit tight. First flight had general screens but second had individual screens although one screen was malfunctioning"
Pros: "I asked to be seated next to my travel partner at check and was told it was done. But I ended up in the last row and he was in row 17.....So much for being a frequent flyer on Copa. Plus there was no over head compartments in the back of the bus for carry one. The staff was not truthful not helpful."
Cons: "Much better treatment especially since I have Copa frequent flyer miles. The hombre that cheed me in did not try to seat my partner and I close."
Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "inflight entertainment was sorely lacking"
Cons: "Blankets could have been clean. Crew could have been nicer, flight could have been without constant turbulence."
Pros: "Excellent airline. Best to connect the America's."
Pros: "Outstanding service, good timing, and courteous flight attendants."
Pros: "Atención muy buena y cómodo el avión"

Pros: "All service is good"
Cons: "I don’t have problem"
Pros: "I like the fact the there was a entertainment system for each passenger."
Cons: "I didnt like that the airplane was small for a international flight, also didnt like that the aircraft did not have wifi."
Pros: "Flight was on time. It was my connection flight, arrived from Mendoza ARG and continued to Toronto. In Mendoza I got boarding pass for second leg of flight (Panama - Toronto) with the gate number and boarding time. Everything was correct, not even gate number changed. Plane was new, crew OK, food OK. It was a pleasent flight."
Pros: "The fact that you get business class service. Pick your seats. Free luggage. Actual meals, you can even specify: Vegitarian, Kosher, Gluten free. All drink options, even Alcohol are included."
Cons: "Entertainment options were non existent, however they are currently upgrading that."
Pros: "Great crew from Chicago to Panama City. Accommodating and attentive."
Cons: "Ah, the usual airline stuff that we just have to live with."
Pros: "The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. It seems like everyone spoke English and Spanish. Free drinks. A fine flight."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and informative. Even though it was a full flight it was very punctual."
Cons: "How people are randomly pulled of flights and stuck in countries and cities they dont want to be in due to the airlines overselling policies. It doesnt provide security or comfort as a flyer with the airline and makes me think twice about buying again with airlines that can do this type of things to their customers."
Cons: "Plane was late in starting barely made our connection to FLL"
Cons: "I was put on standby both time I used this airline and today I wasn’t put in my flight that I have PAID for just because they want to make more money ?!? I am apauled with this service and way of treating paying customers ! Simply the worst company. Ever !"
Pros: "I've always had a great experience when I travel with Copa!"
Pros: "The call center was not accured The fligh atendent did'nt pay any attention"
Pros: "I arrived in one piece."
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket from Costa Rica to Panama in order to comply with laws stating non-resident aliens must leave Costa Rica every 90 days for a period of at least three days. When it came time to return to Costa Rica, I understood that I had not purchased ANOTHER ticket to "prove" my intent to leave Costa Rica again three months in the future. I told the ticket agent I wishes to purchase a "fully refundable" ticket for a future flight, but she was (or professed to be) unable to assure me the ticket she was selling me was refundable. Upon return to Costa Rica, as before, immigration did not ask to see any such proof nor did they even ask my intentions. Isn't this called fraud? I did not need the ticket and, of course, in contacting Copa Airlines, I would have to return to Panama in order to even get a partial refund, which they won't guarantee. Not doing this again."
Pros: "All was. Ganythingood"
Pros: "The service, the food, the Copa Club"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food."
Cons: "Cheap earphones provide very bad quality of sound. I barely could hear anything. I had to use my personal earphones."
Cons: "No announcements when boarding. The speaker system was not used once"
Pros: "Staff was great, plane was clean, seats were spacious. I was overall very comfortable and pleased with my copa airline experience"
Cons: "The food wasn't great, but can't expect much from airline food these days."
Cons: "Waited for two hours on tarmac prior to take off."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, service was prompt and the cabin crew was friendly and spoke fluent English."
Cons: "Not really a complaint but flights marked Operated by P5 Arrorepublica are done using Copa Columbia metal whose business class on the E190 uses a smaller seat type that's 4 across as opposed to 3 across in the Copa Panama E190 s, however it's the same great service."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "FLL's airport is much less congested"
Cons: "Only two Baggage return conveyor belts in FLL the monitors are not accurate as to which of the belts the flights will be unloaded."
Pros: "Overal a good experience"
Cons: "There's no vegetarian options"
Pros: "Smooth friendly service"
Pros: "Clean, well run airline"
Pros: "It's the best airlines customer service , good price ,"
Pros: "The service and employees"
Pros: "Everything moved smoothly"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "all was good except few personal feeling. thou i didn't receive my luggage at the Toronto airport. i don't think this has any thing to do with the efficiency of the airlines, as the connecting flight was delayed due to bad weather."
Cons: "-one of the crew member was kinda disconnected with friendly and smiley face, which we always like to see in our hostesses. -food choice was not available by the time cart reached the middle of the plane."
Really different experience sitting in business! Comfortable and great service.
There wasn’t an option for not applicable under food. No food on this flight. Good coffee though.
Pros: "They cancelled the flight"
Cons: "How about a refund?"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process"
Cons: "due to weather a pile of flights were cancelled, we had to call West Jet and get re-routed"
Cons: "After checking in 24 hours prior and receiving my boarding passes when we got to the airport we found out our seats were changed and only one of them was confirmed if not for one empty seat on the plane we would have had to stay behind this is unacceptable That we were not informed of these changes"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and no on board entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Nice staff."
Cons: "Poor entertainment. I usually watch movies on my iPad but there was no wifi and the available TV shows were not to my taste, the screens were small and not clear. The magazine was boring, no games to play. Flight delayed an hour for no apparent reason."
Pros: "The staff on board the westjet plane were nice but a bit short (except one blonde women flight attendant, she was lovely). The others seemed to be a bit short, likely due to heat or annoyance at punta cana airport"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was by far a complete failure. I understand we are held hostage by PUJ airport but westjet needs to step up their canadian staff there. Language by westjet staff basically Spanish only and rude. We waited on a bus to drive 10 feet to our plane and the driver seemed to enjoy letting us sit in a closed bus with babies and children and elderly. One day this will cause a serious medical issue and westjet will pay dearly. Again, I am aware we cant control that but having a canadian manager there to ensure common sense is used with their customers from gate to plane is a must. Until better I will never fly westjet from there again. On the plane they ran out of food. Again major organizational issues from the companies point of view. Also made me pay twice to pick my seats on my connecting flights. This is petty and cheap. I will be demanding a discount or rebate from westjet due to all the above. If not my story will continue."
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: "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."
Cons: "Poorly organized departure lines had plane boarding late, resulting in a long wait on apron for takeoff slot. Late arrival in Toronto meant waiting for a gate, and then customs delay due to multiple arrivals at once"
Pros: "Left on time or mighty close to it. Arrived on time. Safe and mostly smooth flight. Flight attendants and pilot was friendly. Liked the price for a direct flight."
Cons: "Tight squeeze in the seats in terms of having the back of the passenger in front of you right in your face practically."
Cons: "The flight was 5 hours 40 min late The Flight attended (her name was if not mistaken Staysy or start with S) was staying at the door as a security guard in a detention center without formal greeting “welcome on board”, no smile at all and later jumped on me regarding my bag. I was seated when her collage pulled my back bag from the compartment to make room for a bigger luggage, left it on the seat next to me and said will take care later. With frustrating tone Staysy showed up and command me to put it under the seat. I told her to put it under and not to command me with this tone... as it was not my decision the bag to be there. She did put it under but kept making comments and even did not apologize. A frustrating flights - over 5 hours late with spicy flight attendant attitude."
Pros: "The crew were very amiable and one member in particular was quite funny during the seat belt demonstration. First one I've paid attention to the entire time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold and seats were quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything borded on time. Cabin crew was very accommodating in allowing me to move seats to an empty row."
Pros: "The cabin crew were outstanding on WS709 today. This is my fourth trip with Westjet, and today stood above. Diane was beyond efficient and pleasant while maintaining a smile and grace, while a number of unattended children were onboard. My seat was changed, and that's fine - mostly because of the manner in which the crew at Pearson handled it. Then, I couldn't resist giving up my re-assigned (centre) seat so that two sisters could sit together. The two folk in my row were lovely, they talked more than I did, but when I joined in, it was a genuinely pleasant conversation. Three strangers, meeting per chance. The woman next to me had given her seat up for a family to sit together, so it really was a chance encounter! Diane needs to be promoted!"
Cons: "While things happen, I wonder why when I was readied a seat, it was missed that two children, sisters, were sitting in separate rows? Should they have automatically been assigned two seats together - they were unaccompanied. As happens, an 'aunt-like' woman was seated next to them, and again, Diane was an another in-charge auntie!"
Pros: "It was clean and on time"
Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."
Pros: "Crew was good as usual."
Cons: "Thought the flight may have been delayed due to issues with ice rain in Toronto. From what was said, it wasn't that, some other issue with the plane and a cancelled flight in the west. No email in advance, no apologies, no freebies (like even a stupid sandwich). You sit an extra 2 and a half hours in an airport with a 5 year old before a 4 hour flight, and see how much the lack of anything grates. And paying for the first bag on the flight. And the emails they did send were after we were already at the airport-in no time to do any good. I Usually like West Jet , but losing my faith in them. Wonder how flair is..."
Cons: "Yea missed the connection due to taking an obviously not sick young woman off flight from Jamaica I am a doctor"
Pros: "No much.."
Cons: "To start.. due to your company combining two out going Toronto flights in Vancouver and then being late off the ground in Vancouver because if that we missed our connecting flight in Toronto to Ottawa. This in turn made us miss a very important appointment in Ottawa. I’m sure the company loves that they saved money by combining those flights however you flunked the test with me. All the corporate could care less about me missing my flight after they look at the bottom line but I will be taking my $1600 plus money elsewhere in the future because of the aggravation, frustration and I don’t care attitude that your company has provided me. I’ll I want to do is get back to Vancouver in my return flight hopefully put most likely on time with my two girls and forget that your company does exists. Thanks for the headaches and goodbye.."
Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"
Cons: "Even though it was the first flight of the day, WestJet still left an hour late which meant I missed my connecting flight. That meant I also had to rebook my ground transportation an additional cost. Why they couldn't manage to get the first flight of the day out on time, I don't know. This stuff happens, and I am generally a patient and understanding person. That said, WestJet not only caused inconvenience and added expense, the airline had absolutely destroyed my snowboard bag. It was damaged so badly that I had to tape it up just so I could get out of the airport without losing my stuff everywhere. The WestJet employees didn't say anything about the damage, and clearly hoped I would just go away without making a claim. To make matters worse, they only pay part of the cost to replace my luggage."
Pros: "The peace & quiet. Excellent flight attendants. Comfort was great"
Cons: "Nothing really was bad about the flight. The westjet connect had to be reset but that was the only issue. Flight was delayed 30 minutes."
Cons: "I flew Toronto-Calgary-Palm Springs and then Las Vegas back to Toronto. Only the Calgary-Palm Springs flight (the shortest leg) had seat back entertainment including satellite TV (although it cut out half way there). West Jet should have such entertainment available on all of their longer flights (consistent with the likes of Jet Blue that has had it for years). I would also point the disaster at the West Jet recommended Airport Lounge i Toronto. I almost missed the flight because there was A. No flight information available in the lounge like everywhere else B. The TV available in the lounge was on the information channel which included the time but froze up at some point (I checked the time and though I had about an hour before the flight and had hour til boarding. When I looked up again about twently minutes later the time was exactly the same. C. The Lounge was 20 minutes from the gate and this distance was a total surprise. I provided my boarding pass and the receptioist said nothng about the distance (unlike other airport lounges that I have visited). Note that I stopped into the Chinook Lounge in Calgary to see if they had addressed all of the complaints. I asked how far away my gate was and what steps I had to go through to get there and they had no clue. It turns out that one must take a shuttle bus, go though security again and then go through US customs so bottom line is that one needs the adviised three hours and the Chinook Lounge is essentially useless for travellers connecting to a US destination in Calgary. I would suggest that perhaps your CEO or senior staff should go through the experience of using the above Lounges and believe me this would result in A. Demanding significant improvements or B. Recommending Alternative Lounges or C. Advising that these lounges not be used (and certainly not featuring them on your web site). One additional comment. I arranged to meet someone on your Toronto-Vegas flight at McCarron (last Tuesday nite). There are 26 different luggage carousels so I positioned myself in the middle and monitored the flight arrival information. Officials at McCarron Airport failed to indicate that your plane had arrived. As a result, I was delayed in making my way to meet the individual at Carousel 26 and we missed making contact. Most Toronto passengers were already leaving with their luggage so I approached one of your staff who to put it lightly was useless (not sure why she was there). She would not tell me if my party was on the flight or even when it landed or provide any solution. The McCarron Flight Info Board still did not indicate arrival of your flight even after basically all the luggage was gone. I finally got someone who worked at McCarron to contact the PA Announcer and ask my party to meet me at Carousel 26. The PA Announcement came over a few minutes later ... but said to meet at Carousel 16. Gross incompetence all the way around. Dennis Egan 519-513-1025"
Pros: "Tall dark haired flight attendant from Prince Edward Island was very accommodating is very professional. He had his jacket the whole time and it made flying on west jet seem sophisticated and like we were important enough to dress up for. Also the female flight attendant that did the announcements was great. She made the announcements in a friendly, slightly humorous way rather than sounding bored and businesslike and "let's just get through this" manner."
Cons: "Lack of ice for drinks and snacks. Also, I have noticed that on many flights now, they start with paid service and then free beverage service and often that is about 2 hours into the flight. I realize you probably do that to keep those who need booze from getting anxious or angry, etc. and to make money, but it makes me, who paid the same for my ticket, feel iike steerage class. It would be nice if those of us who aren't puchasing booze (which also includes those who want booze) could get served first, then do the paid. These are little things, but would distinguish you from others. If I knew when I flew with West Jet I could have several packs of crackers or cookies or a small cheese and cracker pack along with ice in my drink and quick soft drink service along with flight attendants that were allowed to be friendly and have a sense of humor, I would consider West Jet more often and even pay a little more. I would pay to be treated a little better than the others."
Pros: "I liked how quickly the flight was. I believe they actually made better time than what was originally estimated. I was also able to get my checked luggage as soon as I got to the carousel."
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. Comfortable aircraft with good legroom: Boeing 737-800"
Cons: "Was stuck in the aircraft for over 1 hour after landing at Toronto Pearson International, close to Terminal 3. Due to no available Ground Crew to receive us."
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Cons: "It was very bumpy ride and scary landing"
Pros: "Friendly , helpful staff . Who know what they are doing and try to accommodate you with minimum fuss ."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind this trip"
Cons: "Sat be side large man. Took up too much space."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Flight delayed departing but pilot made up the time ."
Pros: "Everything except the delays. I like the new app on your phone or tablet to watch movies and TV (and it's free now to watch movies like on AC!). I approve of this change westjet. The staff are very good at informing customers to make sure they download the app before boarding. However because people generally suck and don't listen there is always someone complaining about not having the app on board afterwards."
Cons: "Unfortunately this flight number is always delayed, WS269 Friday YHZ to YYZ. This is the flight I always pick for work schedule compatibility, but have found it to be delayed 30 min to 2 hrs the last 4 times I've taken it in the last 3 months."
Pros: "Everything was very good. The crew was pleasant and entertaining"
Cons: "I don’t want to give an excellent review because it leads to higher fares. But these people are pretty darn good we like to fly with them as much as possible. Two things can be corrected, however. Firstly the amount and size of carry on. If a bag or bundle looks really too big it really is too big. These people are so accommodating though they just let it go. Secondly, sometimes we check in early on line and we have a bag allowance. However, when printing a boarding pass at the airport if we say we are checking a bag the machine wants to charge for it. We always have to ask an attendant to clear this. Perhaps it’s time to fix this little issue. Like I said, I hate to give them an excellent rating because it makes it harder to get a good seat. The company is great and the folks working there are really great. Sorry to say."
Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Pros: "I arrived early to insure that I didn't run into the same troubles as my previous flight when I missed my flight through no fault of my own. This flight was much better organized and went without any issues."
Cons: "I like the concept of boarding a plane by zone however if Westjet doesn't enforce it then the zone loading is nothing but theory. Time to put it into practice Westjet."
Pros: "Free wine and beer."
Cons: "Our flight for Toronto on Sept. 5 , # WS589 was delayed of about 1 and half hour; so, me and about 20 other passengers missed our connection in Toronto. The crew said that Pearson airport was on a shut down due to severe thunderstorms. But the weather was nice and sunny when we arrived Toronto; in fact my connecting flight ( Hainan airlines HU 7995 had left 20 min. earlier- on time- for Bejing. The crew in Westjet plane told me that all airlines were delayed in Toronto airport due to bad weather , and so that I would not miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were so nice."
Cons: "There was no info about the visa requirement and that made me stressed out once I tried to check in. Seats were too small"
Cons: "We had a connecting flight through Toronto to Vancouver. First the flight was deleted from Charlotte resulting in a missed connection. In Toronto the WestJet agent directed us back to the Departure counter which required us to go back through security. There was three gate changes and the flight to Vancouver was late. Our transit to the hotel was closed resulting in an extra expense with taxi fares. Not a good experience overall."
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Pros: "The fact that air Canada had a flight around the same time"
Cons: "Kept delaying with no clear idea of when we'd actually take off"
Pros: "I thought the flight was a smooth and comfortable one, the pilots are amazing at what they do. In my opinion they have one of the most under-appreciated jobs on the planet. They got everyone home safe and sound, and at the end of the day that's the most important thing."
Cons: "When people travel, as a professional airline you would think that luggage and food is something that would be provided for its passengers. People very rarely travel empty handed. You would think that after spending so much money on a ticket, one small meal and 1 piece of baggage would be included. It really turned me off when I realized that I had to pay extra for this. Ask yourself one question, would you travel empty handed? Would you feel comfortable paying $10 for a meal that should cost $5? I get that it's a money grab, but c'mon your company already makes millions (possibly billions) atleast provide people the option to bring one piece of luggage and a meal. I will NOT be using westjet to fly to Trinidad anymore. The flight was good, but many other airlines provide a smooth and confortable ride as well. That being said, things like that can cause people to stop using your airline and go somewhere else. Just something to think about... Caribbean airlines provide the samething your company provides, except they give you food and allow you to bring luggage woth no hassle."
Cons: "The check in was incredibly slow. The way that WestJet does their onboard entertainment is absolutley absurd. What is wrong with the satellite tv they used to have. Now if you dont have a tablet or dowload their app you just sit there. It is terrible that they charge even more for their flights and then they now charge you to rent a tablet to watch movies etc.... I do not understand where this airline is headed but it seems to be headed in the same direction as Air Canada. West\jet use to be such a good airliine but they to have succumbed to the all powerful dollar leaving its customers in the dust. We need another airline in Canada to serve us properly!!!"
Absolutely horrible check in process leaving Aruba. Arrived 3 hours early. Line stretched from inside to out of airport. No movement in 1 hour. Two hours left. Much less than 1/2 to desk with one hour left and multiple security and customs checks (both Aruba and US). Two flights from Aruba leaving to Miami with American a only couple of hours apart. No one came through trying to determine who had the earlier flight to make sure no one missed it. If not for my “pushy” wife who moved us into “First Class” line to bypass others, we would have missed flight as obviously most people waiting around us did as they did not board the plane. Not enough American Airlines staff working at counters. Very slow check in process. The extensive Verifly process we did to document our immunizations and vaccines we were told was not working so they wanted to see documents. They wanted to charge us for checked bag despite we had a checked bag included. Same story from others who actually made the flight.
For auch a short flight it is annoying the number of announcements, mainly because you have a 30 to 35 mins flight and you music or movie stop for every announcement. They announced a drink service that never happened (understandable for such a short flight, but don’t bother me from sleeping or listening to music or watching a movie with and announcement we have to disregard) The crew was good… I feel bad for them having to push the credit cards so hard (also annoying) I did like the video of the safety features better than the old fashioned presentations
Nothing everything was very good🙌🏻
Cons: "the wifi is awful"
Pros: "The plane ride was quick and easy!!!"
Pros: "Flying portion was fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed for mechanical issues.... then upon landing trapped in cabin filled with exhaust then again trapped in a locked hallway."
Pros: "Pilot did great job, superb smooth landing."
Cons: "The two male flight attendants could have been a bit more friendly."
Pros: "comfortable plane."
Cons: "Kay&k was awful. Never use them again."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
Cons: "The flight from Miami was delayed and the plane was very hot during the flight."
Cons: "4 hour delay is unacceptable"
Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."
Pros: "Service for wheelchair was excellent with staff at checking counters"
Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "The cleaniless of the flight can get better"
Cons: "Delays, not helpful staff, not even a meal for a 5+ hr flight. No headphones available. All of this after American Airlines delayed flights and caused us to miss connecting. A whole night delay with no luggage because not one American Airlines staff could step up and help us. It was easier for them to be lazy and say “I know how you feel”. Never Again American Airlines"
Pros: "Flying AA. Excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "The flight promised internet but wasnt available jntil the last 90 mins forna 4.5 hour flight..smh"
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "Great Wifi! After reading bad reviews it was actually ok. Flew business on the A319 (single aisle plane) and it reminded me of qantas 737. I think for a short haul day flight I may just put up with economy instead for the price. Food is ok. I think with AA you have to pick your aircraft, it makes a difference what plane you fly as to what you get in business class. FA's were great. Overall I'd fly them again. Food was ok."
Cons: "They asked everyone to put the window shades down but I fly window seat because I like looking out! It was a day flight too! LAX T4 lounge is being refurbished so you need to go to T5 and make sure it's not the regional lounge!"
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Cons: "Old plane and the movie app kept cutting out"
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew gave no information that we weee diverted to SJC instead of SFO. Very poor communication and. It much of an apology. Seems to me the plane was under weight on fuel."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Cons: "Flight has to stop over to refuel (unplanned on a "non-stop" flight). TV entertainment was bad, inappropropriate and boring. Personal entertainment monitor did not work for the first leg of the flight. Got to final destination 2hrs after schedule. No food for international flight, even considering an additional 2hrs on top of the 6.5 hr flight."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "This flight was comfortable and the crew was very nice"
