Flight was canceled last minute and no re-booking was offered. Had to buy a same day flight from another carrier at double the price. I’ll never fly WestJet again.

Flight was canceled last minute and no re-booking was offered. Had to buy a same day flight from another carrier at double the price. I’ll never fly WestJet again.

Don’t actually know how this flight would have been since we missed it.

It was fine. I had a lot of trouble trying to buy a seat. The Westjet website charged me and then didn’t give me my seat. I ended up keeping the seat I was assigned and hope that the charges didn’t go through.. they didn’t. But this problem with the website (trying to purchase a seat at check in) has happened a few times before. But overall the flight was good.

Terrible! Delayed three times, landed at some corner of airport, walked in bitter cold night, took a bus, bad experience

My wife and I had an uncomfortable experience with your WestJet ticket counter rep at the WestJet Priority Member ticket counter at YYC (Calgary) on May 15, 2024. I not knowing this individual’s exact name, however, in order to easily identify her, she was one (of only two at the time) ticket counter reps at your Priority members ticket counter check-in, upon our arrival around 12:15 p.m. She was a Caucasian woman with blonde hair, and wore spectacles, approximate age being probably somewhere in her 30’s or 40’s. Background: After arriving in to the West Jet terminal in Calgary (YYC), I asked a terminal employee where the West Jet check-in ticket counter was. He told me, “Column 16”. My wife and I continuing to walk through the terminal, we finally arrived at the Column 16 area, i.e. this woman’s ticket counter area, which we discovered later was the Priority Member ticket counter. However, I was simply going by the directions given to me by the previous employee, i.e. “Walk to column 16.” Standing in her line (my wife and I being the only people in her line at the time), I tried to get her attention, and I then gestured to her, motioning to her as if to ask her if I should then possibly leave the waiting line in order to then proceed to walk up to her ticket counter. She never really motioned me to come forward. I sort of had to figure this out on my own, as my wife and I then finally decided to walk forward to her station. From this point on, after I arrived at her ticket counter, never once did she ever look me in the eye. She was always looking at her computer screen, or down at the ground, as she and I occasionally exchanged conversation with one another in order for me to be able to acquire my boarding passes from her. Shortly after she began servicing us, she commented that her work section is for Priority members only. Fair enough. I did not realize this at the time. Wishing to be polite, I then mentioned to her that, if I should, I could then walk over to the regular West Jet check-in ticket counter in order to complete the check-in process. She remained quiet, never responding to this goodwill gesture of mine. She continued to work in order to print out my boarding passes, and then finally handed them to me, never at all the entire time looking at me. I told her, “Thank you.” Never once did she respond. My wife and I then walked away. Even my wife commented to me afterward that this woman absolutely never looked at us. I cannot say that this attendant was outright rude. However, she certainly was not at all warm, congenial, nor friendly. Additionally, … After getting on the plane, we then discovered that she had needlessly assigned us seats in the very last row of the plane, these being the seats adjacent to the restroom back wall, thus, unfortunately not at all reclinable. I think that the row number of this last row of seats was 30. [However, I am not sure.] How strangely awkward that we were assigned these uncomfortable row of seats when in fact the row immediately ahead of us, i.e. I think that was row 29, had two vacancies, which could have otherwise easily seated my wife and me. That is, my wife and I could have easily been assigned these more comfortable seats, which would be reclinable, and then row 30 could have otherwise had instead our two vacancies. After our flight departed, and the fasten seatbelt sign was turned off, my wife and I had hoped to “jump seats”, that is, to leave row 30 and instead sit in row 29 to utilize the reclinable seats. However, another couple apparently had the same idea as us. That is, these other two people, for whatever reason, decided to leave their previously assigned seats, and instead, seat themselves in row 29. Thus, my wife and I were stuck with these miserably cramped row 30 seats for the entire 3.5 hour flight. To reiterate, the WestJet rep we originally encountered, knowledgeable of the plane lay-out as it appeared on her computer screen, could have easily assigned us the more comfortable row 29 seats, instead of the non-reclinable row 30 seats.

It was very, very cold extremely uncomfortable almost unbearable I was sitting at the front of the cabin

Was the longest flight I have ever taken to Orlando. Not Westjet’s fault necessarily. There was a traffic issue in Orlando. We sat in the airplane for about 2 hrs before leaving Calgary on a 5 hour flight was just a little long to be stuck in the plane. Once we arrived in Orlando we were stuck in traffic on the ground for another 30min. I guess maybe the flight could be delayed so boarding would have been later so we wouldn’t have to have the discomfort of being on the plane so long.

Airport monitors did not give the gate for our flight returning Detroit to Vancouver Juice served from glass storage containers are a far more healthy alternative for people. And would also minimize the need for recycling plastic or aluminum containers

I wish that seats closer to the front of the plan were available, but when I booked the flight the seats were VERY expensive so I did not book seats at that time. The day before flying only seats at the back of the plane were available. It takes so long to board the plane and empty the plane on arrival due to SO many roller bags.

Good flight. No I’m seat entertainment. But my phone worked just fine on the west jet app.

The check-in and passport submission was complicated and repetitive, due to the poor communication between Air Canada and United. There should have been a single set of instructions and a single questionnaire that provided the data for both airlines.

-The cabin was ice cold - When we arrived in Houston there was no gate available -We had to wait 90 minutes for our luggage to arrive.. In the future I will avoid flying with Air Canada at at costs

How would you rate my experience when I was stuck in YOW without being offered a cup of water by the airline?

There was no screens on board AND the WiFi didn’t work. My seat was broken and couldn’t recline so I couldn’t even sleep. The flight attendants didn’t offer anything to make it more comfortable. It was such an old cramped plane, when the person in front of me reclined I couldn’t even open my tray table. All the United ads talk about guaranteeing everyone gets a screen!

Marked by flight delays on all segments of the trip. Food in first class cabin was mediocre and overhead cabin storage was not adequate. Overall, the premium charge for first class cabin was poor and over hyped. This will be our last flight with UA.

We enjoyed that we boarded and took off on time. We didn’t like that our connection flight was a twenty minute walk through the airport with only one hour in between flights.

It was good! Appreciated that it was very on schedule so it made the connecting flight less stressful

Two flights,both poor. No entertainment. Cramped and uncomfortable seats, little space, the rest was OK. Staff were acceptable good.

The crew was doing their best on an old plane needing updating. Chairs that creaked and wouldn’t stay in position. My tray table was unusable as was on-board entertainment due the audio needing usb earphones (that were not provided). Prior to boarding in Toronto and despite being scheduled for a wheelchair and assistance, we were dropped off by clubcar without a wheelchair which I found myself by a gate. Due to no boarding gate assigned at that time we waited and when it was, it subsequently was moved from 64 to 95. No help could be found so I pushed my husband’s chair to that furthest gate in the airport at the highest speed possible for a 73 year old. And by that I mean I ran. It was a very stressful experience.

Wifi wasn't working on one of the UA flights after boarding.

My luggage was lost and didn't arrive on my flight

On the final leg of my flight the male attendant was very difficult to understand while making announcements in both English and French. It’s good I already know the safety procedures as I couldn’t understand him at all. My seat mate agreed. When the women attendants spoke they were clear and spoke at a good rate making them very easy to understand. This is a safety issue.

The nicest thing I can say about Air Canada is that they are consistent. Consistent delays plagued our trip. We never had one leg of the journey as scheduled.

Assistance with wheelchair was very good. leg room was comfortable

It would’ve been very helpful to have people directing traffic when we got off the plane at the Toronto airport however, the person who appeared to be having that responsibility was sitting on a chair playing on a cell phone instead of doing their job

El, the trans actions indicated that the purchase and flight was by Air Canada. I over when I get to the airport. Air Canada says no that’s a United airline ticket. I was redirected to the United airline counter to check in. It was impossible for me to check in prior to the airport because Air Canada and recognize my reservation or ticket number.

Cancelled flight 2 hours before and rebooked my on a flight 3 days later. Trash airline

Flight was delayed for 3 or 4 hours. Then the plane drove around for 45 minutes without taking off (maybe not Air Canada's fault, but communication could have been better). Then, my bags didn't make it to my destination.

2 hour delay and no one informed us about it. They left us sitting in the plane for an hour and a half without even offering us water.

Not so good. Got seat no 12 e. Squeezed between two people. No entertainment, hard to move around. Did not enjoyed that flight.
