Pros: "Everything went as planned."
Cons: "USB or power outlets."
Cons: "Flight delayed but good"
Cons: "If the flight is over Nigara , a brief commentary on Nigara will enthuse the passengers."
Cons: "Gate checked bags sent to baggage claim instead of given back at the gate safely because flight was 95 minutes late and they were in a hurry. Flight was 95 minutes late because of inability to balance weight. Spent 50 minutes on runway “burning fuel”. I will never fly Porter again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. It happens, I know. First time using this airline, ended up landing 1.5 hour later than planned. The boarding process in Toronto was bizantyne, with some discrepancy in the checks and balance forcing a manual check in of all passengers. Amateurish."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Stop charging for carry on baggage for outside of Canada flights."
Pros: "The cookies"
Cons: "They bumped our flight for no reason and we sat for 3 extra hours in Toronto as several flights to our destination passed"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I love the complimentary craft beer!"
Cons: "Plane had to return due to bad weather at destination. 90 minute delay."
Pros: "walker cookies"
Cons: "small plane, late"
Pros: "Flight attendants are among the most professional and refined I’ve come across traveling anywhere in North America. It’s a pleasure flying with them."
Pros: "we finally got there"
Cons: "first time we flew porter air. flight was one hour late, then connecting porter flight was also late. they ran out of snacks.....................ugh!! we were never told any info as to why flights were late, no announcements at all."
Cons: "Stay in the airplane for a long time after landing!"
Pros: "Great crew. Helped me move to a seat closer to the front as ones further back make me claustrophobic."
Cons: "I don’t like your new policy of not opening up fee free seats 24 hrs before the flight. You used to do that and now if you don’t pay the extra $25 you get stuck in the back row even though there are lots of available seats. You can do better than this Porter. Especially for loyal customers."
Pros: "Porter was great, bumped us up to an earlier flight because we had no checked baggage"
Pros: "I love the in-flight food and drink service and the airport terminal comfort and amenities."
Cons: "Porter is incessantly late every single time. I'm"
Pros: "After taking a chance on an airline I had never heard of, we were pleasantly surprised! Although there was a weather related delay, they accommodated us on an earlier flight."
Cons: "The plane was a bit loud"
Pros: "The service was incredible and efficient. Couldn’t ask for a better flight"
Cons: "To avoid additional headache when passengers are boarding the plane, I would recommend boarding the “first class” first then start with the back seats then make your way to the front seats. It will be a much smoother process when getting everyone onto the plan."
Cons: "Sandwiches in the Toronto airport were stale and not great. Coffee was decent."
Cons: "Sat behind two people who were treating a child pretty badly and were loud and rude to everyone else. Crew did nothing. It might seem cheap but you pay for everything. Seats. Bags. You get free wine but you’ll need it after trying to fly this airline."
Pros: "The service was great and fast"
Cons: "Both of my Porter Airlines flights were delayed. It seems they often delay / cancel flights"
Pros: "Fast check in and customs lines in both airports"
Cons: "The chips are pretty bland. I appreciate the free refreshments, but would like a bit of choice"
Pros: "On time. Provided snacks and drinks even on a short flight. Group lobby prior to boarding provided coffee, tea, snacks, water for free."
Pros: "The earlier flight departure times are really good, the traffic is not jammed yet on the 401 and GEW. Custom waiting times are basically non existing in comparison to Pearson. Planes are relatively on time (only flew 4 times with Porte), staff is friendly. The turboprop planes have more legroom than most others. I do like them, and do recommend Porter."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants, everything went very smoothly"
Pros: "Loved the Terra chips. Also the price!"
Cons: "Why did I have to take my headphones off during takeoff and descent? No other airline I’ve ridden has had that policy."
Pros: "Free drink, good snacks, nice in-flight magazine, fuel-efficient aircraft"
Cons: "Low door into plane, everyone hit their heads"
Cons: "Dirty toilet. Flight before us by Porter got delayed...all flights after also got delayed. ..poor logistics and no proper staffing at Newark airport."
Pros: "Seats were great. Staff was great"
Cons: "Landing was a little rough . Had to spin around again but the pilot got us on the ground safely."
Pros: "Nice crew, snacks and drinks, good price, calm experience."
Cons: "All flights delayed by 1 hour. Maybe equipment logistics could be better."
Pros: "Johnathan at the gate was very informative and gave us information. But it was very obvious how unorganized the company is run."
Cons: "We were delayed going from Newark to Montreal (both legs), as well as Montreal to Newark. The reason given for the delays was "there is an international pilot shortage" by a Porter gate women, meaning that Porter books more flights then it has hired Pilots. Probbaly one of the most unorganized and unprofessional business models in the industry. The lounge does not even have food for purchase, the refrigerator shelves are empty and no where to go get food. Has been an awful experience."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The check in process was good, attendant there was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the employee shouting out which rows were able to board. We couldn't get close enough to hear and they didn't have a microphone or loud speaker. The flight attendant who was working our flight was very abrasive and rude. We were asking if there was any additional bag storage and she said she didn't have time to help us."
Pros: "The lounge at Billy Bishop was lovely, and thee flight attendants are very pleasant."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because they said there was something with their fuel, and my connecting flight — which Porter told me would be held for the many of us relying on it — took off 10 minutes beforee we got in."
Pros: "Excellent cabin service"
Pros: "All of their flights are late, so you won't miss a connecting flight."
Cons: "All of their flights are late. No running water on one of my flights."
Cons: "Disorganized lounge and very late updates on flight that was 90 minutes late."
Pros: "I missed my flight. In checking desk, my ticket transferred to the next flight for free :) Good selection of free drinks and snacks on board"
Cons: "- one and half hour delay - I left many necessary stuff behind to be under 9 kg carry on bagges which never get weighted. However, many people brought heavy backpacks full of stuff on board."
Pros: "Flight delays paired with rudeness."
Cons: "The staff wouldn't utter an apology nor were they accommodating."
Pros: "Crew and organization"
Cons: "Smaller space but whatever"
Pros: "When we went to check in counter we were early enough to get on the flight before ours and we arrived hour and half earlier Make sure your carry on bag is 9kgs or less or you will have to pay to check it"
Pros: "Friendly accommodating crew, always great service"
Cons: "Delays - there are always delays with porter"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew. Also I had plenty of leg room & a real surprise was free drinks even on a short flight."
Cons: "Each of my flights was late."
Pros: "Lounge and snacks at Toronto were great. Staff were excellent. Flight was enjoyable."
Cons: "Delays mainly. Flight from Toronto to Montreal was almost jeopardized due to lateness of first leg (Newark to Toronto). Understandably there was heavy rain that day. Return journey, (Montreal to Newark via Toronto) the connecting flight was delayed by an hour. In general, on-flight food could be more substantial, considering the time between Newark and Montreal."
Pros: "They served beverages in REAL glasses, in their waiting room they serve FREE coffee"
Pros: "Seats were not cramped, plane was not full. Billy bishop airport is very easy to negotiate. Nice lounge with complimentary snacks. And they're even kosher!"
Pros: "The convenience of flying to downtown Toronto is unbeatable. Plus, it was very easy to board and un-board such a small, cozy plane. I appreciated the generous carry-on policy and the affordable price."
Cons: "I wish there were AC outlets to charge devices. My biggest complaint however is that pens were not provided to fill out the Canadian customs declarations forms passed out on the flight, forcing passengers to find people to borrow pens from. An introvert's nightmare."
Cons: "I had problems with the check in, looks like they don't have experience or something is wrong with their system because we were 3 people with the same issue and there were only one guy helping us. I almost lost my flight. Then, the landing was awful, all of the passangers were scared, we didn't know what was happening and they never told us."
Pros: "Porter is fantastic. Was shocked by the lounge in Toronto -- felt like first class, just by having such spacious areas and free food. Service on the plane was great -- loved the glass cups and generous snacks."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "On time flights & good flight crew"
Pros: "Average comfort compatible with all airlines"
Cons: "WestJet is a good airline"
Cons: "The food could have been better. I don’t mind paying but some nicer, healthier choices would have been nice. It is airplane food so no real surprise. :)"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly!"
Cons: "Westjet connect was not available on this plane!"
Pros: "I like that my original flight was rescheduled but I needed to arrive in Vancouver for my connection so I'm happy they moved me to an earlier flight. Very accommodating!-"
Cons: "Entrainment on flight"
Pros: "Crew were fairly attentive, have experienced better. Liked the Canadian entertainment options, even if very limited."
Cons: "Seats were okay, the plane is really showing it's age. Movie selection was very limited, and very dated."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Frequent American Airlines passenger. Found WestJet had far more leg room and plenty overhead storage. Plane was clean and flight attendants where attentive."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Dry accommodating staff all around. Thank you"
Cons: "More space between people. Not much you can do I understand that. So overall great"
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Pros: "Crew was great, served us multiple times ! Even tho crew was late 25 mins. We have landed 10 mins early"
Pros: "The entertainment made the time go by fast."
Cons: "More food purchase options"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "The airport staff was horrendous."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Always a ‘full flight’ and they run out of spacein the overhead storage"
Pros: "I received great service and the flights were on time."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "That I had to pay $30 for one checked bag, would have thought the first one was free!"
Cons: "For some reason, the return was in Hamilton not Toronto. Unfortunately, I noticed after I paid. Not sure why the flight wasn't from Toronto."
Pros: "Good legroom compared to other carriers"
Cons: "Almost 1 hour late leaving. No westjet connect, so no entertainment."
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Cons: "Gate arrival and boarding delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great. Tea or coffee would have been nice. Having to pay for everything is ridiculous"
Cons: "Three sets of crying children and parents who unable or reluctant to deal with them. Held everyone hostage."
Pros: "WestJet great airline"
Cons: "YYC new Gate “C” poorly organized"
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Was boarding at C70 but only saw signs for 71 and C73. Asked Westjet staff where we were boarding and they told me (and others) that even though we were booked to take off from C70 we’d be departing from the gate labeled C73 and also labeled for a flight to Regina. Still got to Hamilton though."
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."
Pros: "I travelled alone with a baby and all the staff at Westjet wete so helpful"
Pros: "The trip was uneventful........................................"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..............................................................."
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."
Pros: "The plane was less busy so many people had an empty seat next to them. It was great for leg room and I slept the whole flight!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Flight was on time. No overbooking."
Pros: "The flight and crew were great, great flight. Arrived earlier then stated. I still enjoy flying in and out of Hamilton. Great airport. If I can book West jet again, I will, great airline. Took some great pictures from the aircraft. Thank you !!!!"
Cons: "Security, too much, even when we arrived, customs twice."
Pros: "Not much.... so..so"
Cons: "Crew. & entertainment ( why pay for it )"
Pros: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."
Pros: "Main stewardess was very pleasant. Not full flight so I moved back and had a seat to myself."
Pros: "The plane wasn't full."
Cons: "The crew was late."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable . Good price and no delays. I like buying just what you need (food, movies, internet) at a very decent price."
Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."
Pros: "I flew through the air in a metal container across the country in the time it would have taken me to drive 400 km, so that's pretty neat."
Cons: "Provide complimentary movies West Jet. Parading around tablets to rent for $6 is a bad look."
Pros: "On time, luggage arrived even with yer short connect in Calgary"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they never let us onboard even when I was able to make it to the gate before it was closed. After missing the flight the hotel vouchers was provided but we were asked to report in 2 hours (i.e 4AM) so think abou whole night was literally wasted. Finally next flight was 11AM in the morning which I ended up boarding and finally reach Toronto after 8 hours of delay."
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"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
Pros: "Not often do you feel like you really "welcomed aboard." This was not the case on our flights to and from Calgary. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. That was refreshing. I did like the Westjet Connect feature. You don't have a TV screen in the back of each seat. You download the app and you get to watch TV, Movies, News all on your own device for free. A nice plus is that you can change all your devices with USB power port at each seats you never run out of a charge."
Cons: "The only thing that I did dislike was on the return we flew a 737-600 which did not leg room like the 737-800 we flew on first. The under seat storage is skimpy in the middle seat where an entertainment server is located"
Pros: "staff was great, left and arrived on time and we stayed up in the air!"
Cons: "I was able to download the WestJet Connect app on my phone which gives you access to tv shows and movies to watch on your own device during the flight. The app was free and easy to use and there was a decent selection. However, the wifi on board is not free so even though you could watch the tv show/movie - the sound did not work unless you paid for it. There are many other airlines that offers everything for free - it would have been a more pleasant if we were able to actually utilize the service."
Snacks. Water is pretty basic.
Pros: "Very well organized on check in..."
Cons: "They ran out of most food selections"
Pros: "Yes for thé seat"
Cons: "Bene avisé for thé Velay and ont at thé airport 6hrs lost"
Cons: "Air Transat was awsome"
Pros: "Crew was accommodating and kept me and my family comfortable in the flight. Food was good"
Cons: "Free stuff like headphones and blanket which can be collected at the end of the flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Limited movie selection"
Cons: "There was a delay of 4 hours to board from Montreal to Paris. with not any justification or valuable reason from the crew."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No entertainment system!"
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; attentive crew."
Cons: "Cabin temperature; too cold."
Cons: "To have known that you had to do security twice without leaving the boarding area."
Pros: "I liked having an empty seat next to me?"
Cons: "As a big guy, the person in front of my was reclining, and literally dug into my knees. I'm 6'3" so I'm not like abnormally large, but yeah. If there was someone sitting next to me this flight would have been absolutely horrendous. Also, no radio? No TV, what is this? the 80s? Earlier?"
Pros: "Boarding was almost on time. Crew was good."
Cons: "Why did I pay additional $200 dollars to check 1 bag? $70 Canadian there, $50 pounds back (converted to $100 on my bank app.) Ridiculous won't be flying this airline again. Food was terrible - didn't eat. The crew didn't turn off the plane lights to MCR overnight flight, didn't sleep even 1 minute."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Couldn’t fit my carry on in their plane so I was forced to check it, plane was very cold, very little to no leg room"
Pros: "The seat was nice"
Cons: "Seat options could be better"
Pros: "We enjoyed flying out of FLL instead of MIA and the time of the flight."
Cons: "Our stroller wasn’t delivered to us at the gate at arrival. Even though we left it at the door of the plane when we got in the plane. We addressed the issue with 3 staff members and the answer was that “we “ failed to requests it. This was a first for me!"
Pros: "Boarding arrangements."
Pros: "Nice flying, nice crew, nice jet"
Cons: "Luggage took an hour to get out... unacceptable"
Pros: "Nice crew. Nice flying."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The food literally gave me food poisoning"
Pros: "Great price! For the price, we didn't expect much, just travel and get there safe - NO FRILLS. We paid a little extra for legroom and are happy this was not an inflated price. Paying in advance for our bag and getting a small discount was also appreciated. "Get what you pay for" without feeling "nickled and dimed" is what we consider economical and fare treatment."
Cons: "Again "you get what you pay for" is considered. However if I was to be critical, the choice of movies was a little stressful and one sided. (Star Wars and The Avengers). I brought my own entertainment but I felt bad for the Older generation who may have preferred something a little more relaxing and less CGI explosions. Also the interior decor and hardware of the plane was seriously aged and worn, which could use for an upgrade soon."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfy seats, in flight entertainment and charging stations at every seat"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room, hectic boarding"
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "There were no personal TVs and the small TV in the overhead was hard to see and only played 1 movie. The seats were really small and space was tight."
Pros: "Convenient time ,food was ok and no delay."
Cons: "No plug ,no inflight entertainment ,uncomfortable sits and crew was not overly friendly"
Pros: "Most areas were OK.."
Cons: "They have no control over babies crying but it was quite annoying. The left armrest was broken."
Cons: "No chance to change or reschedule flight. No understanding with a bit of compassion the situation."
Pros: "Nothing - why would you get your clients to use it?"
Cons: "everything- take a look at my review on the App Store"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable- cushioning badly needs replacing. Poor width of seat."
Pros: "Wine, seats, food"
Cons: "Complete scam . Thought I was booking through kayak and was duplicitously sent to justfly.com which is a complete fraud."
Pros: "The plane smelled like vomit from boarding to landing. Seats were uncomfortable. Had to pay $9 for headphones. Food was served at odd times for time zone we were leaving and lights were left on far too much of the time for an overnight flight. I’ve had much better service on other airlines. Staff were pleasant but very impatient."
Pros: "Good staff / crew. Had option Plus. Good value."
Cons: "Seats are brutal. long legs have no where to go. Seats should not be allowed to recline. Rude to do it."
Pros: "Was pleased without our Option Plus flight. The sandwich was very good . Just unusual that they did not offer , water or coffee during the mid part of the flight."
Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
Pros: "Airline staff were very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable for a transatlantic trip- difficult to sleep."
Cons: "They ran out of food on both trips"
Pros: "Boarding was done efficiently"
Cons: "The seats were awful. Our luggage was severely damaged"
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Helpful flight attendants and comfortable enough seats for the price."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but the woman in front of me reclined her seat 100% and was in my lap the entire flight: made for leg cramping and discomfort for the 8+ hours in the air. The sand which I received also had soggy bread after warming.. I got the vegetarian and was a bit disappointing."
Cons: "Last week lost my luggage on a direct flight. Flight to Toronto would not let me print my boarding pass after I had checked in online and had no checked baggage to be delivered. Missed my flight due to this as the company was debating to print my pass"
Pros: "Good service and professional transit."
Cons: "The cabin was unreasonably cold. I was surprised that this was not remedied once it became apparent that the great majority of passengers were piling on extra layers of clothing. I think the choice to sell earphones and blankets is a petty one that only serves to diminish customer perception of an otherwise excellent airline. I hope that the decision to set the temperature so cold did not relate to interest in selling blankets!"
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours in he plane, on the Tarmac waiting to leave. Why can't passengers remain in the airport until the plane is ready?"
Pros: "They gave us water when we had to wait an hour before take off. It was not their fault we were delayed. They did wait for the 30 of us who were delayed from Lyon and did not take off without us."
Cons: "They did not answer my call (s) for water to take a pill. They never offered anyone earphones. There were no services at all on this flight as the seat belt sign was on the whole time."
Cons: "The flight is a night flight, so most of us are trying to sleep but we were woken up two hours before landing to be given a piece of cinnamon loaf...I would rather sleep!"
Pros: "Checkin attendant set us up on our own bench given the flight wasn't full. Much appreciated rather than playing games with premiums. Nice, new aircraft. Good basic flight services, though the meals were nothing fancy."
Cons: "No pillows available, and blankets for purchase. Airline certainly didn't go to any lengths to facilitate passenger comfort on an international overnight flight. Flight schedule was also kind of weird. Turned the lights on 2.5 hours out from destination for a pass-out-packaged-biscuit meal service. Was not a restful flight"
Cons: "Having bigger seats/personal space would be nice for such long flights."
Pros: "Friendly crew. A couple of very recent movies. Individual screen."
Cons: "Narrow space, especially for my legs, but also my arms. Too much selling of duty free. That woke me up when I finally slept."
Pros: "Great crew, food and complimentary wine."
Cons: "Cramped seating, but not moreso than other airlines."
Pros: "The rest of the journey was fine, and the crew were great."
Cons: "I felt that the Rome airport manager on duty acted punitively towards me. I was admittedly trying to bring a carry on bag that was perhaps just slightly too large. But as soon as she saw me with it, she walked over the agent who was helping me and inserted herself in my check in process. This ended up in 35 minutes of phones between herself and U.S. an Canadian immigration, where I was forced to send travel documents for the whole of the 2014 and asked which countries I travelled to in 2004. She then told me my passport had been declared stolen but that I would be allowed to board my flight. I don't know what the story is, but I guarantee if I hadn't caught her eye by being a bit cheeky with my bag, none of those phone calls would have ensued. It was a deeply upsetting and unecessary experience and I plan to request a formal explanation of how the situation escalated so drastically."
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Slight departure delay - no big deal"
Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."
Pros: "Fairly new plane... new and much improved entertainment system..."
Cons: "I used Kayak to find my ticket and fill out my information (all kayak logos on top of the page and so on). However, when my confirmation email and e-ticket came in, they were issued by Budgetair.com. I had no experience with them and took it to be a reliable website since they were working with Kayak. However, I had to change/cancel my flight because of delayed passport delivery, and this is when everything turned very Ugly! I had to spend an hour over the phone to get connected to an agent with BudgetAir, who disconnected the line within 2 minutes saying: “please hold so I can pull up your information”. This game went on for 6 hours. I tried to connect with the airline directly to make the change, which was not possible since Budgetair had placed a restriction on this ticket. After 6-7 hours, which meant no work for me or lunch because I was sitting behind my desk with a phone on my hand, I got through an agent who was rude and impolite. He took 15 minutes to find flights for the new dates (I did it in 2 minutes on their website), and then told me to pay $315 in extra fess. When I inquired that the prices on your website for the exact same ticket is way cheaper than my original ticket price, he got angry and aggressive. Basically implying that I have no choice to take their offer as is, or let go of my original ticket price of over $2000. Long story short, DO NOT buy from BudgetAir if you like having a peace of mind!"
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The five hour delay of departure was not fine."
Cons: "Seats are always a pain in the butt Wifi has never worked for me -slow and keeps dropping"
Pros: "Early flight was not as crowded"
Cons: "But was very busy just the same. Weather was poor"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Being 6' 4'' becomes an issue with modern seats."
Pros: "It was 10 minutes early"
Pros: "ground crew were friendly"
Pros: "Plenty of space. Attentive crew. Food was acceptable."
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "flight was late"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. Westjet is better."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
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."
Pros: "The attendants were friendly. The air conditioning was on point. Good music. I listened to the new slowdive for the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I remember not liking. It was great."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"

Pros: "Great food, attentive service and comfortable seating"
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "small flights"
Cons: "I had to leave"
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
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"
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Cons: "4.5 hour delay. 30 mins to try and use a voucher (???)"
Pros: "I didn't fly from Calgary to Vancouver."
Cons: "To small of plane."
Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"
Pros: "This flight is a step off the path."
Pros: "Air Canada is not a goo Air Lines for customer service."
