Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Pros: "best meal ive had in so long service was great the captain anniuncements were clear and detailed"
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Cons: "Nothing really could be improved other than typical airline problems that can't necessarily be solved. We did fly out of LAX on our way home and that was more of an unpleasant experience as there is not near enough seating for people waiting to board their flights."
Cons: "Better food options!"
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Leaving Montreal"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "guess they are a budget airline, since Millar to Rouge, Air Transat etc. Didn’t realize they weren’t a real airline company. As said, this is our first time using WestJet."
Pros: "So now we check in on line. Check in at Terminal 2 Then at the gate the West Jet staff do repeats calls asking for people to check in. The shuttle from Terminal 2 to 3 seems unnecessary, especially with the set of stairs to bus shuttle. A bit dangerous to line up on stairs especially for the elderly managing bags etc. Lower price on checked bags and you will not have to do repeated call out for volunteers."

Cons: "It would be nice to have a few different options. Possibly fruit or vegetables or chips and dip. Mixed nuts or a granola bar."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Cons: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."
Pros: "good value for money. Staff were helpful"
Cons: "A direct route from St John's to London."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."

Pros: "helped me find my bag when another airline lost it."
Cons: "delayed, again"
Pros: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."

Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"

Pros: "Friendly people!"
Cons: "Not enough space. Tv was glitchy. Seat uncomfortable."
Cons: "The attendants could have been more hospitable"
Cons: "Should enforce limits on carry on items which causes boarding delays and inconveniences. Some people with large personal items and backpacks and carry on take multiple storage spaces in overhead bins."
Cons: "2,5 hours delayed. Econ seats are tiny with zero legroom."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Rough air"
Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."
Cons: "The main meal was pretty dreadful. Grilled chicken with what I think was mashed potato, but it was difficult to be sure. Watery and tasteless. Accompanied bizarrely by a tomato sauce (which did taste of something). Hard to identify the ethnicity."
Cons: "Zone 5 boarding even after I had pre checked in online."
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "Kept us up to date and gave us a lunch voucher."
Cons: "We had a 4 hr weight in St John's"

Cons: "The landing"
Pros: "We had requested special meals and they showed up fine on the reservation page o. AirCanad's web site. Then they changed the itinerary (again) with a minor improvement after we had upgraded to Business class. Somehow Air Canada deleted the special meals. Not just lost with the change but actively deleted according their rep. So no meals."
Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"
Pros: "We were already delayed by alot"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "1. Boarding arrangement was very poor. 2. No zone number on our boarding passes. Although we were seated in seats 22,23, we were automatically pushed to zone 5 and forced to board last. 3. My wife and I were assigned two middle seats in two separate rows. 4. We were forced to check in our cabin baggage saying that there was lack of overhead space, but when we boarded among last passengers, there were a number of empty overhead bins. We could easily have saved 45 minutes in Toronto airport without having to wait for our bags."
Cons: "Losing my bag, someone took it by mistake, but all turned out well."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Cons: "I paid to upgrade seating and on other airlines you get priority boarding and can store your bag in the overhead bin. Not the case with air canada...not great customer experience compared to delta or united."
Cons: "Lavatories didn't flash properly. No tap water"
Pros: "Your service was good."
Cons: "The outcome was not. They would not allow me to board the plane b/c I didn't have a valid passport. I grew up in Canada & over the years have crossed the border in both directions & never needed a passport. Could you be more diligent in letting people know this."
Pros: "Space between seats in economy class"
Pros: "Yes, I like it"
Cons: "We could not book for large group, so we have to separate"

Cons: "The idiots lost my luggage, and it took two full days and about 20 phone calls to get it back."
Cons: "Delayed by 45 minutes, but there were no official announcements or information from Air Canada until boarding started. As usual, Air Canada does not seem to respect it's clients enough to bother informing of information regarding their flights."
Cons: "the egg sandwich had a really bad sauce on it."

Cons: "no pre-check line or priority access line through security. There's not even advance warning when you buy a ticket that its anything but business as usual at LAX. They are renovating the lounges too so some are closed with no mention on the website. It's really inexcusable to not mention the state of affairs when considering traveling on the airline"

Cons: "The boarding process is a bit chaotic. I honestly think the wi fi should be free."
