Nice short flight. No problems!😀
Pros: "Customer service was excellent"
Cons: "I missed my flight and am still in Seattle! You should let people with connections which are already boarding off first. I could have made my flight. Customer service then refused to give me anything to eat and now I haven’t eaten all day."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and they really made the flight so much better. I loved how short the flight was - just 58 minutes from Vancouver to Portland."
Cons: "This is a turbo-prop commuter flight, so it's fairly noisy; also, there are no USB charge ports or entertainment system."
Pros: "I loved how accommodating the crew was for having a late departure."
Cons: "Maybe update the passengers as you find out the plane will be later than expected"
Pros: "The flight delayed but the crew was really helping! Huge thank to the lady served in the economy class AS2239 on March 4th from Vancouver to Seattle. I was not able to catch the next flight without her helping."
Cons: "Cause the flight was canceled I have to call the airlines to get the refund, which not 100% refund, it makes me disappointed"
Pros: "Great crew, nice plane"
Cons: "More varieties of snacks"
Pros: "I liked that when due to a medical reason, I was able to be given the option of rebooking my flight even though there would be a penalty and extra charges and I would need to pay the difference."
Cons: "When I called to rebook my flight within the year and about 3 months in advance of the desired date, unfortunately Latam made multiple errors and also told me that rebooking flights only are eligible for more expensive flights. Even though there were other less expensive flights that I was able to find and see online, they insisted the only flight available had a price difference of $4,000+ dollars. the original ticket was around $550 so this was absurd. Not helpful at all, how frustrating."
Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour and no one could explain why."
Cons: "Crew was late but not their fault. Crappy WiFi and Gogo app"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed, may of been beyond the pilots control. Scrambled seating arrangements."
Pros: "The crew was terrific"
Cons: "The long delay was miserable. Although we would rather be on aircraft that was running like it should. We were dead at that point in our journey and the long delay was very difficult."
Pros: "Even though there was no TV screen in the headrest, we were all provided with IPads to view. The controls on the IPad were quicker than the in headset TV's. The seats were comfortable and we all received a flight packet that included a toothbrush, eye shades, ear plugs and a pair of socks for our comfort! Blankets and pillows were in our seats when we arrived."
Cons: "I missed being able to see our flight path. On a long flight it's difficult to keep track of where we are and now much longer we will be in the air without the flight tracker. My baggage was misplaced, so I was delayed by needing to fill out forms for lost luggage. Thankfully, it was located before I reached my connecting flight."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Pros: "The flight attendant was friendly."
Pros: "The crew did their best to make a bad situation better. Alaska Air a very decent company and usually have good flights with them. They offered me a free cocktail after a family with 3 little kids took my seat to sit together. A cocktail at 9:55am doesn’t really appeal to me however. It was a 2 ½ hour flight so I could grin and bear the discomforts. Everything else went great ...baggage arrived an was in the carousel quickly although the $25 baggage fee slap is annoying on an already over priced flight. I still love Alaska"
Cons: "I am 6’2" and a difficult time with comfort in standard airline seats. Today’s flight with the family taking my assigned seat put me in the last row against the rear wall. Super scrunched for me then to have a very large couple flying non-revenue squash in next to me made it just that much more uncomfortable. I wish if you have kids you would go the extra mile and pre-pick seats like he rest of us .... not a hater people just like courtesy is all."
Pros: "The plane had far more leg room than typical airlines which was a pleasant surprise. It was newer than most, the flight attendants were polite and accommodating and the ride was smooth!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flew Alaska air - Plenty of leg room and much more than any qantas domestic flight!"
Pros: "Good seats. Nice entertainment options."
Cons: "No / limited good on such a long flight. Very limited stock of the desired items with a convenient and sorry we are out."
Pros: "Seats are ok."
Cons: "The flight schedule was delayed two times."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "When we arrived in Seattle it took over 20 min to get ramp to the plane. Long wait..."
Cons: "We can't get boarding pass in Taipei. Hence, we have to go through Canadian immigration process to obtain boarding pass, then enter US immigration zone for US immigration process before get on board."
Pros: "This airline offered gate checking for carry on baggage, made boarding a snap. The experience was crisp and efficient, but the crew were very pleasant to interact with, and no effort was spared for passenger comfort."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Can’t really think of anything"
Pros: "N/A. Because of bad weather on Vancouver Island, my flight to Vancouver was delayed two hours and I missed my 230p flight to Seattle. Alaska had no other flights available from Vancouver that would get me to San Diego and other later flights that day from other airlines were over booked. I stayed the night and flew out the next morning on a direct flight to San Diego. The flight was fine. The flight crew was nice, they offered us drinks and snacks and the air condition worked. The reason I included the AC is sometimes it doesn't work and that's miserable. There's not too much else to add."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and there was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was only an hour flight, so there was no entertainment. And the seats didn't recline."
Pros: "charging outlet"
Cons: "light delay. no service."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Wish there was a direct non stop flight to SMF from YVR"
Pros: "Small plane and short flight. Not too much to expect other than get there on time which they did"
Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "Flight attendants were quick and efficient during a medical emergency."
Cons: "We had two hard landings (in Seattle and again in Ontario - same crew) and hit turbulence coming in toward Ontario that literally forced a flight attendant to her knees in the aisle."
Pros: "The overhead bins seemed to have more space than usual for non-checked bags."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and the flight was late. This was already an evening flight, so the delay meant that I missed the last public transit train once I was home and had to pay for a cab."
Pros: "My snowboard didn't make the connecting flight, customer service had it delivered to my house the very next morning."
Pros: "Flight was quick with wonderful views of the San Juan islands"
Cons: "content with everything on this flight."
Pros: "Great customer service! The crew was super patient with me and a flight issue I had"
Cons: "I never like the drinks offered on a plane."
Cons: "Bag full of very expensive ski stuff lost in Vancouver somewhere---hoping I get it back!"
Pros: "Smooth flight and easy app to handle"
Cons: "Kiosks couldn't read any of my travel documents. Even thought I checked in and about my luggage 24 hours in advance I had to form the line and check in for help."
Pros: "time of flight"
Cons: "The plane was tiny. Everyone had to check standard carry-on luggage"
Pros: "Bad attitude, no info, then annoyed when we asked them anything. All the passengers kept cool and calm. Staff was terrible."
Pros: "The entertainment is the only few good things left, since it does not depend on service"
Cons: "Even thought, it arrive on time. It started with a delay. And it continue a second delay. If they would have let me know earlier, I would have just good time in the lounge. I have been trying to maintain status by flying with Alaska or its partner. But I kind of regret paying the extra. I should just pay the cheapest, because I've got the cheapest service anyway. They don't give me a free drinks, until I ask for it. And then when I request for a chocolate, they give me an either or choice. Well, if everything is on good timing, I would be fine. Since the delay, I thought they would make it up at the service ... Nah ... Oh well, next year, just find a better value airline. I hope Alaska would dump all their service, and adopt entirely virgin service. The only good thing about Alaska is probably its operation."
Cons: "This flight ended up being delayed because of an overhead bin door that wouldn't latch. I understand the rules, but it took 1.5 hours for the mechanic to arrive and assess the situation. Consequently, I missed my flight to Reno from Portland. The airline paid for my hotel (thanks!) and I arrive home with my luggage the next day. Mostly this was an inconvenience, and all turned out well. Just annoying when the problem seemed so minor. The time frame was too long for most passengers to make connections."
Pros: "The flight was quick and we arrived early. I had more seat room on this flight than on intercontinental planes. Very smooth landing, one of the best."
Cons: "No beverage service of any kind--trip was too quick!"
Pros: "the flight was so short that nothing mattered but it was still a good flight."
Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"
Made a lot of customers check in their bags at the gate. But the cabin space was half empty and all luggage would have fit. Doesn’t make sense.
Cons: "We paid for transportation to cancun and it didn’t happen. We hope there will be compensation for the lost day. So disappointing."
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment (using own tablet) both very good."
Pros: "over great job and service."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Cabin cleanliness. There were flies nesting in the window of the row in front of me."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Crew was great, served us multiple times ! Even tho crew was late 25 mins. We have landed 10 mins early"

Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Friendly crew and good snack options"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "I would expect that with a 5 and half fight that some sort of food besides ti terrible cookies and pretzel would've been offered!! A very long time to go without food!!!"
Pros: "Crew was good..flight went well"
Cons: "Don't like having to download app for entertainment ..some devices not current enough...disappointing to kids.."

Cons: "Plane smelled of sewage"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Shakespearean effort by staff"
Cons: "Little snack perhaps?"
Cons: "More than 1 drink served"
Cons: "I asked to pay for a better seat prior to my flight from Kelowna to Edmonton and was told there wasn’t any. When we boarded the flight attendant moved a couple 10+ rows up for no charge."
Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."
Pros: "As always great service and flight"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "People were cramped in the plane, hardly any room for bags. People from other seats were packing their bags on top of other peoples stuff"
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: "Crew very kind and smily. Very punctual."
Cons: "Prices ridiculous, one coors light 7dollars and with 7 dollars you buy 12 coors light in Mexico!!!. Food really bad and prices worse. No entertainment."
Pros: "Amazing Service at the registering counter at the airport. One for the two flight attendants was very nice. Unfortunately, he was not the one assigned to my section."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was incredibly dismissive. “Forgot” to ask for my order to get lunch, so needed to call him so he could take my order (he was already in the middle of eating his own food) and of course by then what I asked for was not available, and the options for food were bad. On top of that, the trash from the top of my table was not cleared for a long, long, long time (even though everyone else’s in my section were clean). First time this happens to me in all my years of flying, specially in upper economy class."
Pros: "As it was a red eye flight, we didn’t utilize the food options. My answer is better identified as ‘n/a’."
Pros: "Flight crew humour"
Cons: "I was in row 2 and they did not have the food item I wanted. Seriously?"
Pros: "The service of the crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No food included just water and Coke."
Cons: "Paid good money for this flight to Cancun, no wifi, and no movies etc... This is unacceptable and I'm very disappointed as a long time WestJet flyer"
Cons: "The crew on the plain was extremely rude!!! Very very dissapointed!"
Pros: "Great service and atmosphere! The crew was so helpful!"
Cons: "I wish you could make the seat space bigger..."
Cons: "Friendly. And a nice quick/smooth flight."
Pros: "The friendly service and prompt boarding!"
Cons: "The snack options. Veggies and hummus would be nice!"
Cons: "airport did t have air conditioning and there is no room in the overhead compartments propeller planes are unreasonable loud"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "We were not sitting together...we are both seniors and my husband has only flown 2 before....our seats were booked together and I am assuming due to our flight cancelled on Jan 8 and rescheduled on the 9th that could be why. No room to stretch your legs, for those of us who have circulation problems...."
Cons: "I checked into my flight 24 hours in advance, got my boarding pass and everything. 12 hours before, I double check the boarding time and my flight has been cancelled. I got no notification of this, luckily I happened to check on my own."
Cons: "Having to divert to Calgary for broken radio. I’m positive there is enough redundancy in radio system to be down 1 radio."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and we arrived in Cancun early which was great."
Cons: "The cabin was freezing. I fly often and I always pack a sweater and a blanket but even that couldn’t keep me warm because the cabin was so cold Also, my meal that I purchased on the flight was frozen all the way through. It was literally like biting into a popsicle. My teeth hurt for the rest of the flight after just one bite. I asked for another sandwich which took a while because they were busy with other passengers. My replacement sandwich felt just as cold but it wasn’t frozen solid like the first one. It seems like a minor inconvenience but it became quite frustrating."
Pros: "Staff are friendly"
Cons: "The on board menu only caters to rabbits and squirrels. I get some people like to eat that way but what about the other 80 percent of the population????"
Pros: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Crew overworked but pleasant and doing their best. Self check in works well with assistance"
Cons: "Management decisions meant assigned crew arrived after our flight supposed to depart. Needed 1 more person to service passengers. We waited a long time after serving started to get served. We did not know that food could be preordered online and served soon after takeoff. No TV screens on back of chairs...had to rent device to see movies. Have app but not able to book and get points. Wrote to WJ for help but oo response"
Pros: "A short haul flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Was on time and i was upgraded at no charge. The westjet staff is always friendly."
Pros: "Everything was streamlined and easy to understand. We made it on time and the staff were friendly, especially with our young son who is one Ana half."
Cons: "the Airline was pretty cramped but it was a short flight so it wasn’t too bad."
Pros: "Great flight easy booking"
Cons: "Paying for baggage"
Pros: "Staff at WestJet are the best!"
Pros: "Flight on time and professional crew"
Pros: "Comfortable plane."

Pros: "The flight was fast and with no delays"
Cons: "They charged me extra 14 USD for checking in, I had never being charged extra for that."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Smelly WC and crew"
Pros: "The flight from Vancouver to Mexico by Aeromexico was cancelled. I was assigned a different flight at 6am the next morning and we could not board in the last minute when we were at the door (it looks like the flight was overbooked)... Finally we are in Lima but our luggage is lost."
Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."
Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."
Cons: "Entertainment or WiFi being available"
Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"
Cons: "Two one way tickets were purchased to Cancun. The layover was 2 hours... but since the first carrier was late, it caused us to miss our connecting flight. Because the 2 tickets were from different carriers, the airline charged us $1600 to buy new tickets. I would never buy tickets this way again."
Pros: "Perfect timing, pilots throttled up to catch up on a delayed departure, absolutely bang on. Cabin crew were great. Comfortable seats with recline."
Cons: "Inside could do with a clean, but it was an older 737 workhorse, typical wear & tear. I paid more than expected but I did get a good reliable service."
Pros: "I enjoyed it"
Cons: "Good overall service"
Cons: "El vuelo salió atrasado . Teníamos acientos en AM+. Incómodos El sistema de entretenimiento no funcionó. Pedimos que lo vean para arreglarlo. Nadie nos acercó con respuesta. Mal trato del personal a bordo"
Cons: "The plane is in terrible shape"
Pros: "On time. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Food too salty"
Cons: "Your customer service center is useless. The representatives do not help, they are mean and patientless."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of snacks, prefer chips"
Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."
Pros: "Quick flight, ease going through customs"
Pros: "Overall great experience."
Pros: "I didn't have a seat and was upgraded to first class, which was AMAZING."
Cons: "Horrible customer service and delayed all our plans"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Cons: "The person in Aeromexico balcony didn't have training to attend clientes in the best way. She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."
Pros: "We made it"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours. The flight was cold and miserable and today I’m sick."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."
Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"
Pros: "Surprise first class!"
Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Aeromexico was unable to provide the boarding pass for our second flight on the itinerary (operated by Delta) when we checked in in Mexico City (our checked bags were tagged all the way to Minneapolis though). They informed us that we would need to go to the Delta ticket counter when we arrived in Cancun (with a short layover). This is an unacceptable level of service."
Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable"
Cons: "Que solo tengan cacahuates y el avión no tenía pinta de haber sido aseado antes de abordar"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"
Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing."
Cons: "The seats, my Gawd...felt like I was sitting on marbles. And this priority board issue. Why say you have priority boarding and be the third zone???"
Pros: "attendants heard your grievances."
Cons: "i got there around 5am for a 7am flight. it took those 2 hours to check me in. and then ran to the plane so i would not miss it."
Pros: "liked the seat and the space. a blanket provided without asking"
Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "Late boatding"
Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."
Cons: "Missed flight due to my connection flight being iver one hour late"
Pros: "Everything - the excellent service continued."
Cons: "That our flight was finished."
Pros: "Price! And aervife"
Cons: "La aerolinea nondeja documentar ni una maleta en viaje internacionaybesones fuera de lanley ybdijeron q estan amparadoos a esa ley"
Pros: "Excellent legroom, friendly service, on time"
Pros: "It appears not many pay for the upgraded seats between MEX And CUN. My husband and I had 6 seats to ourselves to stretch out on! Boarding priority was non existent and in flight entertainment was for children, but overall it was a comfortable flight."
Cons: "I'm stuck in this huge airport because the connection time between Mexico City and my next flight to Leon was vastly underestimated. In Vancouver I was assured that one and a half hours would be sufficient but when I saw the line through immigration I realized what a joke that was. That process alone took well over two hours, followed by another hour to pick up my bag, find the correct spot to drop it off again and then re-enter the boarding area. Meanwhile, the shuttle I arranged to pick me up in Leon have one and gone. So, here I sit, exhausted, frustrated and weary, waiting for the next flight, and not knowing how I will get to my destination in the dark hours of the night. I could do with back rub and a shoulder to cry on."
Pros: "Fast flight Social distancing A whole row to almost every person"
Cons: "The vegetarian meals, they were not enjoyable, we actually couldn’t eat them. I wish we had not gotten vegetarian meals as the regular breakfast was a choice between pancakes or omelet with fresh fruit, which where both vegetarian. They need to make a difference between vegetarian and vegan."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, has good entertainment program. Uncomplicated easy boarding."
Cons: "Food for 9 h wish to be better: dinner was cold (you could feel that chicken was warmed in microwave, but pasta was just taken from fridge), breakfast was pathetic. In last seats to many overhead compartments was secured for equipment or occupied by crew"
Pros: "The zone system seems to work well for boarding and the cabin crew on my flight to London were superb, helpful and polite to myself and others, despite a few impatient passengers."
Pros: "Take off and landing smooth and relatively smooth in between."
Cons: "6 hour flight no food included. Came by twice for beverages. No entertainment. Probably the first time in 10 years I've been on a flight without any screens for entertainment. Goes without saying, no USB plug in."
Pros: "When the flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues my flights from Victoria to Cancun was rerouted through Toronto with free hotel where my brother and I shared a bottle of wine at Air Canada's expense..."
Pros: "The flight was on time check in was simple and quick Staff on board friendly and professional Inflight movies fab Plenty of room on seats clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing all great"
Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "We got there without crashing."
Cons: "Checking in and luggage drop off was chaos. One useless staff person failed to tell people where to line up to drop bags off until the end. She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Pros: "Will use again"
Cons: "Airline food has always been poor no matter which airline you travel. Be more liberal with the drinks trolley."
Pros: "Good leg room. Staff friendly and helpful. Really great flight."
Cons: "Horrible customer service from check in through to the flight attendants. Needed to download app on my phone for an international flight in order to watch movies. Was very unimpressed with the experience."
Pros: "It was average"
Cons: "My connections were tight from the start. Then when the flight from Vancouver was late leaving, it caused me to come very, very close to missing my CVG connection. I had to find & clear customs before I could even go to my gate. Getting thru customs was like being in a maze. I showed my passport 4 times in the process & finally someone helped me to fill out the electronic form. I made it to my gate in the nick of time just as they were ready to close the door. They radioed ahead to let 2 more people on that plane. Then I get on and someone is sitting in the seat that I previously purchased. The flight attendant didn't make them move either. Air Canada's practices suck! I will never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "This review is about Air Canada from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Our flight was cancelled the flight for technical reason, without a notice. We found out when we got to the airport with four children. We were put on a later flight that also left Los Angeles later than the scheduled time. We arrived to Vancouver so late that we could not make the latest BC Ferry to Victoria that left at 9:00 pm. We lost our hotel reservation in Victoria. We were stranded in Vancouver till we could find a hotel that cost us an extra $600 (US dollars), an extra reservation for the ferry and lost a precious half a day of our vacation. When we complained about this wasted time and money Air Canada did not utter not even a clear simple apology. It offered a lousy discount on our next flight with the company, believing that we may ever use such an uncaring company"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No TV monitors and food was bad"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."
Cons: "Air Canada offers this flight DAILY. Yet somehow the boarding was the most excruciating tedious I’ve had to endure. Passengers who needed assistance boarding seemed to have to deal with haphazard organisation, and the fact that they seemed surprised so many people brought carry-on luggage that the bins filled up is laughable. Changed my return flight to Alaska Air."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by 45 minutes which made me miss my connecting flight. I asked the flight attendants if they could help me get to the front of the plane to see if I could catch my connecting flight and they wouldn't help me. Due to this I had to wait over 4 and a half hours at the airport wheee another 350 people were waiting for accommodations. I was in the airport until 4:30 in the morning because there weren't enough air cansas representatives. In addition, they were working really slowly because they kept getting up to chat with eachother."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Clearing immigration in Vancouver is very convenient"
Cons: "Food choices are limited and expensive."
Cons: "Instructions on Air Canada's website when you Google "how early should you get to the airport flying Canada to USA" say you should get there 3 hours ahead of time. For a 6:40 flight I got to the airport at 3:40, as instructed, and checkin wasn't even open. Per Air Canada's website "You should arrive at the airport three (3) hours before your flight's scheduled departure time. Pre-board security screening for departures to the U.S. opens at 3:00 AM. Exception: 20 minutes for flights departing from Toronto City Airport (YTZ)." Check in staff told me I should have gotten there 2 hours ahead. This is very conflicting. Considering I was heading to a 10 hour trade show, believe me that hour of sleep I lost between 2:30 when I had to get up for this flight and 3:30 when I could have gotten up sure was missed. Correct and consistent instructions to passengers go a long way."
Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."
Pros: "Overall very very good - could offer more water throughout flight."
Cons: "Pressed the service bell mutiple over 30 minutes, no one came. Had to get out of my seat and walk to the back of the plane where I found all the attendants having a chat. Not even a sorry from them."
Cons: "Customs detained my girlfriend and I for an hour causing us to supposedly miss our flight. We spoke to a Air Canada Rep and they told us our flight had left and they couldn't hold it for us. That is fine but they said they would not provide us with a hotel for missing this. Ok that is there policy but we ran to the terminal E95, for our Flight to Portland which had actually had not left and they were actually holding it for another person. So Air Canada lied about our flight leaving and that there was not another one till the next day. Overall I will never go to this airport nor will I use Air Canada ever again."
Cons: "The flight attendants were jerks. Why can't I listen to my headphones before takeoff? Because of the safety speech? Are deaf people not allowed to fly? I was asked to take my headphones off during the safety speech, which I did. I put them back on after the speech and was yelled at. The lady in front of me had a dog. The lady across from me was talking on her cell phone. And the kids behind me were playing games on their iPad with no headphones and the sound on. No one said anything to them. Screw this airline."
Pros: "Food ok crew and staff very helpful"
Cons: "YVR airport's Air Canada staff was extremely unprofessional. First, they cancelled my original itinerary and moved me to a flight 3 hours later. Now I understand it was holidays so I was okay thus far. I got to the airport 2 hours before the departure time and even though I had check-in online, I was requested to get into "Check-in assistance" line instead of the "baggage drop". The "Check-in assistance" line had multiple people rebooking their flights when at the counter (on an average each person was being held for 15 minutes by the slow staff). By the time I reached the counter, I was told that the gate had been closed and I will have to rebook. The staff said at that point that it was "just the way it is" and their terms and conditions have this clause saying they don't guarantee people will be boarded. Well, sure, don't board them if they're late but don't delay them on purpose and then strike them off the boarding list. Very Very disappointed."
Pros: "screen and interface"
Cons: "back of seat/head rest uncomfortable, average food in very small quantities films not refreshed fast enough, same in and out flights"
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Pros: "Everything came on time. Staff was professional during a difficult situation"
Cons: "Air Canada seems to lack organization or any coordinated effort through out the organization. They have a fully booked flight and instead of making people with hard case luggage check them they crowd them in on the same flight where there are delays trying to get peoples luggage to fit into the bins. Also through the 4 Air Canada flights flight attends were constantly running down the aisle and hitting customers shoulders and not apologizing. it was also disruptive when people were trying to sleep (these were the 3 flights going to hawaii through calgary and vancouver and then back through vancouver. Probably will not fly with Air Canada again till corporate starts considering clients."
Pros: "I'm glad Air Canada took appropriate precautions to ensure our safety, however..."
Cons: "On the flight from Portland to Vancouver, someone was allowed to board the plane and then leave, with no explanation, no accompaniment, and no way of contacting him. Consequently, our flight was delayed 3 hours while police and bomb squads checked the plane and all the baggage. Why was this person allowed to disembark in the first place? This occurred during boarding, so there should have been attendants there to stop him or at least ask him where he was going. And once he did disembark, why was no one able to track where he went? Seems like an odd security breach and, ultimately, a huge inconvenience for the passengers who remained on the plane."
Pros: "The flight was good and the attendants on it were nice. Wasn't too uncomfortable and in flight entertainment was pretty decent."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour which in itself is okay as I understand flights get delayed and these things happen but the way in which the staff controlled the situation was horrible. They made multiple announcements making it sound like certain groups should go to the counter to be boarded (children, people needing assistance etc..) yet when these groups of people showed up at the counter the staff acted irritable saying they would need to wait their turn and that they havent even started boarding yet. This led to massive confusion and a huge pile up of people at the counter."
Pros: "Aircraft was very comfortable and up to date"
Cons: "Both dinner and breakfast were so bad as to be a joke. Tasteless chicken on pasta with a miserable little salad for dinner. Breakfast far worse, the 'continental breakfast' being a slice of banana loaf or something similar in plastic film and a pathetically small yoghurt. Crew didn't even serve pour row coffee or tea, totally overlooked us. My next flight was with SAA to Johannesburg - infinitely better food and attitude. Not that I expect this eeview to make any imnpression on Air Canada. THey are beyond help and frankly I don't care as I won't fly with them again."
Pros: "Comfortable, well maintained aircraft. Good entertainment. Friendly crew. Boarding process was well conceived. They separated seating zones into different queues, and turned back people who attempted to board out of order."
Cons: "Breakfast was underwhelming for an international flight. Dinner was just average. The crew seemed to have trouble responding to things like...people using restrooms late during the descent, passengers making themselves a little too "at home" and thereby disturbing their neighbors, and repeated chimes due to an errant elbow on a call button...the little things. They are things you don't notice when a crew is highly attentive, as you find on Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, or Air New Zealand. The crew were friendly, but not quite in charge."
Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything I liked, other than the plane arriving and leaving on time."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment is a joke, it's a 14 hour flight so why are there only 3 episodes of any tv show? The food was inedible, and beverages were limited to 3 choices coffee, water or juice. I was trying to sleep on the plane but every time a flight attendant would walk past me they would run into me (and I was very much within my seat) and wake me up. They also woke me up to ask if I wanted food twice. The seats were so uncomfortable. I'm an able bodied 20 something and if I am in this much physical pain from flying I can't imagine what an elderly person must feel like after flying Air Canada. The pillow that was provided gave me no comfort what so ever, it wasn't think enough to even offer some back support."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight - had the luxury of a row to myself in economy. Food and drink service was great and the crew were very friendly. The 787 is a pleasure to fly on."
Cons: "More movies and TV - flew with Air Canada 6 times in 6 weeks so I was starting to run out of entertainment options."
Pros: "There was a decent selection of in flight movies"
Cons: "-the aux plug for the headphones wasn't working properly. Resulting in me having to hold the headphones in place the entire flight -the first time the attendant went by with the food selections for purchase she walked right past me and went on to run out of food by the time I finally got her attention. -I had to ask the people behind me several times to please stop their child from kicking the back of my seat. Although the attendant made eye contact me one of the times she made no intervention on my behalf. - my return flight was in short: neglectful and arduous. I probably wouldn't recommend Air Canada after a flight like that."
Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats being marked @ $ 16 and $42 upto 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "food choice are awful. I am allergic to bell peppers and avocado, so there is little I can eat"
Cons: "this was my second flight in two weeks that was delayed out of Vancouver. Last week to Newark we were delayed 4 hours due to a tire needing changing, got into New York 4 hours late. Yesterday, the flight was again delayed for 90 minutes while mechanical repairs were needed. Several people missed connections. It is making me think that I cannot trust the timing of your flights and as I am going to Paris through Montreal on Sept. 25th, I feel I should change my flight to give myself more time to make my flight to Paris. I currently have 1 hour and 5 minutes to make the flight. Do you think I should change my flight and will I be charged for it. Please advise."
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
Cons: "Not much leg room (and I’m only 5’8’’)."
Pros: "- Boarding was efficient - The food was good"
Cons: "- The male flight attendant in Business Class was rude. - The movie options were very limited, dated and unappealing"
Cons: "Friendlier service."
Pros: "On time flights"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "Slow with drinks and food, late departure"
Cons: "The WiFi for the personal entertainment system wasn’t working properly"
Pros: "I finally arrived."
Cons: "More communication about delay and lost luggage."
Cons: "A mechanic issue with a fan in the cargo hold kept us from boarding for 40 minutes. Once we boarded and got out onto the tarmack they discovered an issue with the GPS. We sat for 2 hours before going back to the gate. Maintenance came on and fixed it. Then we took off.. 3 hours late"
Cons: "Everything. We were incredibly delayed which happens but none of the staff knew what was happening. Different passengers were told different things and when we tried to ask questions they were far from helpful. It was not a good experience at all."
Cons: "Plane had no entertainment"
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class for free"
Cons: "I was very happy with this flight!"
Cons: "Limited entertainment, in main cabin food and bags cost extra even in international flights. United airlines is like flying budget airlines even when u pay for main cabin premium seats."
Pros: "Whole trip to Cancun without wifi"
Cons: "The seats are more crammed side to side and frontto back than EVER. No room to crack open a laptop.... iPad yes but not a keyboard."
Cons: "... before takeoff necessitated return to gate from runway for technical inspection and approval before flight. That, plus de-icing, put us about one hour behind on departure."
Pros: "Happy with everything!! Upgraded to business class-from boarding, breakfast, blanket and exiting the plane-all was well:)"
Cons: "Because we missed our connecting flight with United, we had to fly American from Dallas to Cancun."
Cons: "The seats were super close , I felt like a sardine . My legs were cramped and it hurts so bad. The WiFi didn’t work as good as it was supposed to. They gave us a little bag of mixed snacks as if we were toddlers. $425 spent on a flight to be treated like that ? Never again"
Pros: "Crew. Club soda. Safe landing."
Cons: "Pay for movie. Delayed plane that landed 10 minutes after boarding for connecting flight which was last flight of the night."
Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."
Cons: "7.99 to watch DTV with very limited Choice you get more from Jet Blue Free The sound jack was worn out so I had to jiggle it to find the spot it worked and then hold it for 5 hrs They appear to be cutting corners"
Pros: "No delays. No problems"
Cons: "There should be more free food."
Pros: "Staff was great, and the few delays that occurred were fairly minimal and it was clear that the staff/pilot did their best to keep things timely"
Cons: "These seats and spaces are incredibly small, my body is so sore! Also the internet costs money? I've travelled with other airlines that include Wi-Fi for free"
Cons: "I didn't like buying a ticket for a flight with an ANA number and advertised as ANA but then flying United. I don't want to fly united."
Pros: "It was a sparsely populated flight, I was able to lay down and sleep, very nice!"
Cons: "No problems, al was fine and I slept very well. No complaints!"
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers"
Pros: "Very annoyed to pay for luggsge and that I keep the weight so strict if a bit over! Will not fly u again As it's not worth it - sorry - greed is rife!"
Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."
Cons: "Awful service,"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "The attendants were absolutely wonderful and made our flight tolerable. Thank you again to the crew for working so hard and making our flight so much easier."
Cons: "Lack of communication - after we had checked in at the airport (under 2 hours before our international flight time) we were notified that our flight was delayed by an hour and 45 minutes. After waiting about 4 hours everyone started lining up in their respective rows and that's when the terminal United employees decided to inform us all that all passengers need to get in line at the desk first in order to get their passports inspected and get an approval stamp before lining up. Could have easily been done in the hour and 45 minutes of delay time we had. It's now 11:30 am, 2 hours past the original flight time and 15 minutes past the original delayed time, and we were all still in our respective lines to board the plane. The delay was due to the catering cart that had not yet arrived. So we were all waiting for about 30 minutes in line just to board the plane. During this time United decided to promote their Entertainment onboard and alcohol available for purchase once we are airborn. Finally when we were on board and about to be airborn is when the first apology was heard from the crew. This could have been managed much more effectively and professionally."
Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "On time, great crew"
Cons: "Small plane, last row of seats are the pits"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Your refund or rescheduling policies."
Pros: "Was quick enough and on time."
Cons: "Please start charging obese customers more money for their tickets. Seat I was in had me squished because the other passenger was so big. Its not fair that I have to give up half of my seat."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "No free snacks"
Pros: "Crew and services"
Cons: "in flight movies were not free while most other airlines offer passenger free in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"
Cons: "Did know till we got on the flight that if we wanted entertainment that we had to down load a appt. so that was annoying."
Cons: "For an international flight, we had to pay for meals and for entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately I am writing this letter to express my concerns and frustrations toward your stewardess on flight 1050, they were aggressive and condescending. A customer ask if they were serving drinks the male stewardess waved his hand and seemed quite annoyed and stated " mam what do you want to drink". In addition he would walk down the aisle and give you three wafer cookies , I'm wondering why three???? That's because he wanted me to pass them down as if I was in an assembly line rather than handing each customer a cookie. He walked through the aisle with water and never asked if anyone if they would like water. It was almost like he was annoyed at everyone in sight . I have never experienced such behavior on flight. I flew Unites AIrlines plenty of times and NEVER experienced this. The other customers in my row expressed their frustration with the unkindness of treatment during the flight. I understand it's a very hectic weekend with the holiday but there was absolutely no reason to experience such behavior. My party will not be looking forward to using united again!"
Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We accidentally left our Camera on the plane and didn't realize it until we got to our hotel. They had found it and returned it directly to our hotel. They saved our honeymoon."
Cons: "We had checked in early and selected seats together because this trip was our honeymoon. We or an alert saying our plane was changed as well as our seats and we were seated on OPPOSITE SIDES of the plane. We were then charged over $200 in order to sit next to each other. I even called United directly and they said there was nothing they could do. That's pretty inexcusable and ridiculous. If the customer service representatives are not Empowered enough to rectify such an egregious inconvenience, then why do they exist?"
Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."
Pros: "On time Skilled pilots Smooth landing Accommodating staff Pleasant"
Pros: "Majority of flight staff were rude and unhelpful. Gate changed 3 times, one gate being a literal half mile walk from the other. No in flight entertainment on board."
Cons: "Majority of flight staff were rude and unhelpful. Gate changed 3 times, one gate being a literal half mile walk from the other. No in flight entertainment on board. Have taken this route at least 6 other times with other airlines. Will never flight United again."
Cons: "Overall becoming frustrated with paying airline inflated seat prices not reflecting current fuel prices, smaller space, fees for every little extra, no food even for international flight, not enough overhead storage even for one per seat, switching of payed for Isle seat to middle at last minute, not a clean flight_ trash in seat pocket when I boarded and overall feeling of just being a revenue stream and not a person."
Cons: "Our flight arrived 20m late, as did my wife on the same flight three nights earlier."
