Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I missed the flight because the delay of the anterior connection and custom, and they didn't give me a new ticket, I had to buy a new one."
Cons: "Late by 2hrs"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Smiling faces and humor from the crews."
Pros: "Very smooth flight."
Pros: "Smiling staff. Very helpful"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly as were the security agents."
Cons: "west jet did a poor job of scheduling maintenance staff."
Pros: "Before taking this flight, I was very nervous because of all the bad reviews on here and other sites. The only good reviews seemed to be by people from Alberta (not really trustworthy, as they seem to support anything that's from Alberta, and note that Westjet is based in Alberta...). But I was blown away by how organized Westjet was and how nice they were. All the flights were on time (I had a few layovers), the staff was helpful....I really have no complaints. Sure, they don't have a plethora of great in-flight entertainment such as movies, etc. But when I fly, I'd rather pay less, have the staff be nice/organized, and just bring a darn book to entertain me. It was a great first flight with this company. I would fly with them again....and I can't remember the last time I said that about any other airline. So do yourself a favor: Don't listen to the bad reviews on here (unless you're obsessed with in-flight entertainment and big-butt first class seats)."
Cons: "The movie and T.V. show selection was bad. But that's not a big deal for me...."
Pros: "Everyone was kind and helpful. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Trip was too short."

Pros: "Crew are always pleasant it just gets a bit too hokey!"
Cons: "Calgary airport for a transfer between Canada and the US is like a bad episode of Monty Python! It takes far too long and is far too dependent on the efficiency of silly tram drivers, baggage handlers who are phantoms and computer efficacy! All I care about at the airport, and all I want from airport staff is ruthless efficiency. Anything besides ruthless efficiency is just obnoxious and wastes my time!! No wifi on the aircraft nothing decent to eat on a flight scheduled during the dinner hour"
Cons: "i ordered food but it wasnt provided. i havent checked to see if money was withdrawn from my account. i also would have prefered to have westjet connect. there is better selection and i could use my bluetooth headphones"
Pros: "Excellent staff. I wish american carriers would take lessons from them."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a 5 year-old boy who had a hard time sitting and his mother had nothing for him to do. He kept kicking me, by accident, and was disruptive and noisy. Finally I decided on a counting game with his m &m's and that lasted for about half an hour. I know that West Jet had mo control over this situation."

We arrived very late to the airport, very close to the cut off time, and the staff let us try and catch the plane regardless. It was my mothers birthday dinner that night, so I am extremely grateful they let us through to try and make our flight. Thanks WestJet!"

Pros: "I got motion sickness and they helped me bringing ice to put on my neck. It helped a lot. They were amazing!"
Pros: "Constant thanks from crew for the passenger patience with delays due to flight crew, and then weather delays - 2 hrs total Liked the captain came out to speak, clearly I might add, to explain the weather delays and provide updates..."
Cons: "Can't complain about what was beyond my control, but flight crew needing to come from another flight and then the other side of the airport to set up, resulting in hour delay - seems like alternative should have been available or system needs a process review to improve efficiency"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and the meal I pre-ordered was very nice. Snacks and beverages were complimentary."
Cons: ""Engine trouble" so off the plane and back to the gate. Not much information conveyed to us. Just sitting and waiting. Took off about 2 hours late. No entertainment. $6.99 for a tablet."
Cons: "Was too hot"
Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing so far, thanks."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Great staff on plane"
Cons: "Plane was overweight due to the plane carrying luggage from a previous flight. This is poor logistics planning on Air Canada. We were delayed by an hour and waited inside the plane on the tarmac while they removed the extra luggage to reduce weight."
Pros: "I watched incendies and lion and both were great films so I commend your film options. The crew were all pleasant and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "The chairs have no low back support. I rolled up my sweater and put it behind my low back because the chair is so poorly designed. It seems to encourage a slouched position. maybe you have it that was to encourage people to upgrade their tickets. I hope that's not the case as that would be cruel."
Cons: "No offer to have transportation to gate. I am disabled and had a very long walk."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Calgary airport first and foremost went above and beyond for me. The flight then after was the same, friendly attendants, great smooth flight. 5 stars for staff."
Cons: "The headphones are bad, i had my own headphones so it was fine. I did go w the air canada ones first just out of convenience, but they were fuzzy, probably would have ruined the movies."
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "Flight late (30 minutes) as mostly with Air Canada, fortunately not cancelled this time as also common with Air Canada short distance flights Not enough space in overhead compartments for carry on. The lady at the boarding makes it sound like that is the passengers fault."
Cons: "Many connecting flights jammed together F terminal at YYZ. SOME thing caused delay after delay. This really messed up baggage people. Once we boarded after like - 10 delays and a gate change, there were NUMEROUS whole-flight mixups with luggage - so many similar flight numbers traveling to same destination and whole flights awaiting their luggage. Our party of four had our luggage spread through THREE different planes. WTH? No customer service at DTW once we arrived and there were so many livid people. Absolutely awful. We were supposed to arrive at 5PM and it's now 3:11AM. My son just completed filing a luggage claim loss. And we are off to drive home to Grand Rapids two hours away. Nightmare."
Cons: "The temperature, it was cold and asked an agent to turn up the heat atleast and got ignored. The seats were extemely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly service by captain and crew. Frequent information provided abut flight."
Cons: "Food was available for purchase. Only small beverage served with mini sized snacks."
Pros: "Buying wine was a good idea. It's a good cure for frustrations."
Cons: "I had trouble checking in online AND printing boarding pass at kiosk. Plane left 45 minutes late. Boarding was chaotic. Headphones did not work with entertainment system. Drink order was incorrect... I just had to pretend I was on crappy public transport for two hours for a one hour journey. I laughed out loud when they announced on flight that Air Canada was voted best North American airline. Riiiiight."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "The crew to Calgary was wonderful. Flights were on time. Airbus was comfortable and quiet."
Cons: "The crew from Calgary to Toronto was average - not pleasant...."
Cons: "For an overnight flight I would have expected the lights to be turned off, or at least dimmed. My plan to sleep and enjoy my day of return did not go ask planned."
Pros: "Seat is not too crowded"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "That there was no meal included. Only ordering extra through the cafe catalog"
Cons: "Late arriving because of out delay from the original flight and missedvout on our hotel booking"
Cons: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."
Pros: "loved the free movies"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Pros: "Great food, attentive service and comfortable seating"
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Pros: "Video screen in seat back so I could watch movies"
Cons: "I forced to check my carry on bag despite the fact that there was room in overhead compartments. Consequently my bag was damaged when loaded onto plane, or when unloaded onto baggage carousel. Disorganized loading of passengers onto plane."
Pros: "The flight back to Newark was good. Boarding was smooth and crew kept walking around with water to keep everyone hydrated."
Cons: "The plane was old and cramped and entertainment system had issues. Movie choices were not that great."
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "small flights"
Cons: "Screaming kids right behind me for 3 1/2 of the 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "Littled staffed"
Cons: "I had to leave"
Pros: "Once again, being on time was important to me. Crew members were nice."
Cons: "I wish they would've offered free snacks on this flight given how long it was. It would've also been to nice to have been forewarned about needing to go through security again, as I had a U.S. connection from Toronto. That takes a lot of time, even with a bit of a layover."
Pros: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "Flight was late by over an hour."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid 14$ for wifi and it kept kicking me off all the time. Also when we landed in Edmonton we circled their airport for half an hour then finally landed and we were stuck on the Tarmac for additional 45 min while we waited to get towed to our terminal. All in all terrible first time flying with air Canada and will never do it again. West jet flight I took to my destitnation was awesome"
Cons: "Constant gate changes. Getting a seat number assigned was tedious"
Pros: "I arrived safely with my children"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "-majority of tvs were shorted out and not working -plane was heavily delayed so didn't make second transfer flight -one attendant gave us wrong directions to next gate at LAX -LAX airport was under heavy construction which delayed gating gate to gate -Customer service offered no options to how to get to San Diego -now we are in debt with a car rental, gas, and having to go back to the airport twice for the baggage -most likely won't be using United Airlines again"
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Cons: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"
Pros: "Linda the Air Canada check in Agent at the Priority desk in Calgary was the best Check in Agent I have ever dealt with in over 20 years of business travel. I was with my family and she even made a special effort with my two Granddaughters that they are still talking about today. She is the reason Air Canada still has ALL of my business every year"
Cons: "The person checking me in to getting seat assignment must have been having a bad day. She was downright rude."
