Pros: "Great flight attendanta. Good food and beverage. Flight was on time"
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent flight overall"
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating and the bar was complimentary! The food was average but the entertainment provided was excellent. Anyone interested in current movies or TV shows will be pleasantly surprised by the selection available. 10 hours never went by quicker!"
Pros: "Awesome flight attendants"
Cons: "We paid extra dor two of the last seats but disnt get those seats and we didnt get refunded for them either"
Pros: "Best flight crew again - super professional and took the time to speak with passengers in economy - impressive!"

Cons: "More food would have been better"
Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."
Pros: "yes amazing crew! thank you so much!"
Cons: "perfect already!"
Pros: "Please read notes above -"
Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"
Pros: "Decent meals, complimentary drinks including alcohol, more room between seats than some carriers"
Cons: "Seats are not as well padded as some carriers which becomes important on long flights. Heathrow gates are very long distances for anyone with mobility issues and switching terminals is confusing if not done regularly. Onboard staff was helpful. On board entertainment was free and varied. No WiFi?"
Pros: "I could not fly back to the US pr the layover. I got stranded in Berlin. It was horrible."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flights back to the USA and the connecting flight. It was horrible customer service when I spoke to British Airways at the counter. Lady in TXL yelled at me to leave her desk and to call Air New Zealand. Air NZ said they cancelled flights then Flyus.com said to deal with Air New Zealand and said my flights got cancelled and that they could not get me another flight. I had to find out how to get out of Berlin. I had to fly to Spain to my cousin’s home because I haf no where to go and did not have money to pay for another flight from Berlin to LAX 1,200 euros. I am still in Europe stuck and it is Monday 4/30. My son needs me in Los Angeles! I will never use Kayak again. What happened to my $878 dollars????"
Cons: "Unlike other international flights, Air New Zealand only allows 1 check in luggage per person instead of 2. Most other international airlines allow 2 check in luggage. But otherwise it was good and the service was ok, not as much food selection as other airlines but the crew are very nice and the airline is very clean."
Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."
Pros: "The customer service is stellar, the planes comfortable. I will fly with them again in the future."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"
Cons: "Although I had mistakenly arrived many hours early for my flight and traveled with the airline back and forth across the Pacific, ANZ personnel would not admit me to their lounge to wait in relative comfort."
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and adjustable with tons of legroom. There was a bottle of water at our seat when we arrived, real pillows, and no more than two seats side by side. Bean bags to rest your feet on was a great touch."
Cons: "Touch screen system on entertainment system was very sluggish and unresponsive"
Pros: "Comfort, cleanless, crew availaibility."
Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"
Pros: "Great flight and most notable was kindness and attentiveness of flight attendabts."
Cons: "Everything was well done."
Pros: "Did get noticed that the flight was cancelled and appreciate keeping me informed on that."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Seats are unbelievably cramped. Not enough legroom or cargo room under the seats. It seems they put more seats in than the aircraft was meant to have. Made experience of 10 hour flight much more difficult."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"
Pros: "I really like Air Newzealand!"
Pros: "Liked just about everything. Paid extra for upgraded Economy seats but it was worth it. Seats 35 A & B. Flight both ways very smooth and flight crew very accommodating. Have already recommended New Zealand Air to all my friends."
Pros: "the movie selection"
Pros: "Lots of selections"
Cons: "Adult movies with many sexual scenes need to be avoided in the aircrafts! Children behind or sitting the next roll also watched it! Very concerned if I should book your airline with my 2 teenagers in the future..."
Pros: "I absolutely adored Air New Zealand. The airplane itself was a ball of fun with its purple lights. The flight crew was funny and charming, and quite attentive to people who wanted snacks and beverages. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "I hated that it costs $150 for an extra (2nd) checked in luggage. If you are flying international, typically you get 2 free checked in luggages. This caught me by surprise, and I wish it was brought to my attention before I went to the airport. The seats were okay, didn't recline as much as I would've liked. But overall I enjoyed my ANZ flight."
Pros: "New plane, direct flight"
Cons: "Outward flight had unfriendly staff. Return flight had staff that were invisible. You either get a mean mom or a negligent uncle, neither are optimal for flight crew."
Pros: "amazing accommodations and comfort with everything accessible for technology great staff, kosher means as i requested were on point, arrived late totally my fault, to both departing and arriving flights and they really did an amazing job making sure i get on the flight, international"
Cons: "Some of the crew were a bit pushy"
Pros: "Brand new plane, great leg room in coach. My next suggestion would be to buy "sky couch""
Pros: "The Air Canada flight to LA was fine. It was the second leg of the trip that wasn't all that good."
Cons: "The very long stop over in LA. The airport is not great."
Pros: "Timeliness, friendliness of flight crew"
Cons: "I had selected an aisle seat. But on the plane, the configuration of seats was different and it wasnt an aisle seat. Since its a seriously long flight, I was very upset that my selection had not been honored."
Cons: "To much time delay on flyith"
Pros: "This was my third flight with Air NZ.. Flight Crew excellent, entertainment excellent, food great. Especially enjoyed the morning tea after the long flight from London to LAX."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1 hour and gate was not posted until right before boarding causing us to rush clear across the airport. However boarding was quick and made up time in flight so all worked out."
Pros: "The crew were really awesome. They kept a smile the whole 11 hours."
Cons: "To be honest I had to pay for the five star entertainment and a small increase in comfort."
Pros: "A good amount of legroom (in economy!) and really pleasant staff."
Cons: "Paying $233 for an extra bag was ridiculous."
Pros: "Sat in a seat that can be a sky couch, used the footrest option even though I wasn't able to use the full sky couch. Very comortable. Great movies available, but I wish there were more episodes of Married at First Sight! :)"
Cons: "I purchased a preferred seat, which included preferred boarding. There was no preferred boarding announcement and I boarded with everyone else and fought for overhead bin space."
Pros: "Everything was good except"
Cons: "Seats were very crowded. Small walkway- difficult to get through with carry on baggage, difficult to pass, when attendants were helping and bent over to hand drink their body/ behinds were bumping into me"
Cons: "No vegetarian meal, lot of turbulance"
Pros: "Checkin was easy and fast. The lounge in Auckland was comfortable and well supplied."
Pros: "Service was good, lots of leg room and they even had in flight entertainment for free!, unlike all other domestic airlines where they always try to nickle and dime you. Great airline."
Pros: "The staff treated everyone like humans not a number!!!!"

Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Waiting on the runway for 45 minutes to de-plane"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The unexpected turbulence"
Pros: "They're organized, staff is super friendly and seats are clean and comfortable."
Cons: "I haven't flown a first class this poor ever. No blankets, we were not offered drinks until we were at cruising altitude, no magazines, felt very dirty and unkept. Food was less than desirable. Alaska needs to improve their overall service and cabins."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, from when we boarded the plane to when we got off. (:"
Cons: "We had to wait over 2 hours delayed our flight claimed it was mechanical reasons then change it saying it was paperwork they need to do so we would be able to make the flight wasted almost 3 hours I was sleeping the crew wakes me up for drinks like really !!bad experience!!!!"
Pros: "Air travel in the US is a disaster. People are cattle. Food is overpriced. Some airlines have policies that out to be criminal in how passengers are treated. The good news is Alaska and just a few other smaller airlines are far less terrible than the rest of the industry. The product is still cramped, unapitizing and not always smooth... but the crew is consistnetly awesome... and their policies are customer friendly"
Cons: "Selling the credit card on every flight for 15 minutes is torture. Force feeding us an informercial once is more than enough but if you have a round trip with connections it is 4 times. I was considering it but by the 4th time I was too annoyed to ever get your credit card"
Pros: "The crew and the service"
Cons: "The 30 min delay in takeoff"
Pros: "There was no entertainment since was a shorter flight but the staff was amazing, comfy seats, good selection of food and excellent coffee."

Cons: "seats not giving good lumbar support"
Pros: "Was an average flight, nothing bad happened and nothing exceptional happened."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Pdx tsa...very rude"
Pros: "That I was finally able to go home."
Cons: "My first flight to Alaska was delayed and my flight leaving was cancelled completely. I called customer service and was told I would be given a refund for all the trouble my cancelled flight was causing making me late for work and my ride being unable to pick me up at the new landing time. I never received a refund and my rebooked flight got cancelled. I almost didn't get home on that flight either, but the customer service agent found me a seat. I never received a refund and I missed out on pay at work. I never want to fly Alaska again!"
Cons: "charged for ipads, wifi didnt work,"
Pros: "George Yoo"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early. The crew was friendly and offered drinks on an hourly basis. The egg scramble breakfast was pretty tasty; surprisingly it was made with real ingredients not an ounce of foam egg insight."
Cons: "Nothing worth complaining about."
Pros: "Crew was fine and great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then we had to sit on the runway after boarding for about 45 minutes before takeoff. Arrived to LA over 1.5 hours late."
Pros: "Flight was okay, uneventful until landing"
Cons: "After landing at LAX we were made to sit on tarmac for 45 min because there was no gate available. This isn't rocket science folks, we were a scheduled flight coming into a major hub. Disappointed."
Pros: "I recently moved from Baltimore to LA in February. I love Alaska Air! The crew is always friendly and as a 6'3 guy I appreciate the legroom in the aisles."
Cons: "I was rebooked on a non-direct flight for tomorrow. They overbooked the flight."
Pros: "Being stra"
Pros: "I liked the captain's communication about the delayed departure and how he made up time to get us to the destination on time."
Cons: "There was no need for us to have taken off late. The plane was on the ground but at the wrong gate and it was brought around to the correct gate more than a half-hour late."
Pros: "Early take-off, friendly staff"
Cons: "everything was cool"
Pros: "The whole air experience is so egregious now, I'm committed to first class and only a few airlines. Just can't do it anymore. I'm not a herd animal and I don't want to do it their way. Period. On Air Alaska it's a clean cabin, they leave on time, they maintain the planes. Amen."
Pros: "Leaving on time, arriving on time."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, too small, even for a small person like me. Person next to you takes up 1/4 of your seat."
Pros: "very little except the price"
Cons: "well it wasn't Qantas that's for sure"
Pros: "Friendly people, clean new plane, ease of check in and baggage drop."
Cons: "Sold out of the fruit and cheese pack by the 20th row!"
Pros: "Great pilot and flight attendents, clean plane"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Pros: "From the staff that went above and beyond to get me the seats I wanted on an extremely crowded flight, to the efficient process of boarding those without overhead bags earlier, to the comfortable flight - my experience was excellent."
Pros: "Staff very warm."
Cons: "Food selection paltry. Vodka from Seattle? Hopefully you will take Virgins food selections and liquor. Alaska can use an overhaul. Also aisle too tight."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "We had a six hour layover in LAX and our luggage still didn't get transferred to our next flight and so our first 3 days in Ecuador was without luggage!"
Pros: "Pilot told us it would be 10 mins really took an hour to taxi and park plane."
Cons: "Pilot lying"
Pros: "It was actually an American Airlines flight I asked for a seat change from window to an aisle seat and even though the flight was fully booked, according to the staff, they kindly obliged and I got an aisle seat"
Pros: "It was on time,"
Cons: "On going efforts by all the airlines to squeeze as many people as possible in as tight and uncomfortable seating as they can get away with."
Pros: "I felt like I had enough room & was comfortable"
Cons: "Would like to have some form of free entertainment (music, TV show, movie) without renting a tablet"
Cons: "Checked baggage fees"
Pros: "Boarding went very well. The credit was extremely helpful and responsive."
Cons: "Not enough room for individuals with broad shoulders. I felt as though I were either invading my neighbour's space or hanging out in the aisle."
Cons: "I didn't get a blanket or pillow"
Cons: "I had tried multiple times to get a seat at the ticket counter and at the departure gate...when I was finally able to get a seat there were no aisle seats available...that was not helpful as I am required to get up every 1.5 hours and walk around the cabin because of health issues Beverage service was once and no snacks..I am used to this so brought along some snacks but it would have been nice to have peanuts and not only a cold drink but then some coffee."
Pros: "Great crew, on time flight!"
Cons: "The only thing that I didn't like was the airplane, it was an old one and not comfortable at all ;("
Pros: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight so long that I finally gave up and went back home. Missed my little grandson's birtheday which I was completely bummed about.. Sometimes I sense that they operate on a very fragile shoe string! No advance notice that the delays were occuring."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. Great flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats for sleeping/built in headrests. Free entertainment. American codeshare plane."
Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Pros: "We had comfort class and it's very nice"
Cons: "Both Crews at airport and on flight aren't very friendly, I guess this is the nature of all American flight after seeing how customer being treated from the United incident"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight leader was entertaining and sounded well versed on the speakers. I really like that it was not a full flight. A little extra room to work with."
Cons: "Queue time in L.A to secure a gate. (Minor)"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "The entertainment units were terrible. Touch screens effectively impossible to operate in this 737-800."
Pros: "They got us from A to B without any problems."
Cons: "Efficient to the point of robotic."
Pros: "The plane looks nice from the outside."
Cons: "Was not made aware check in closes AN HOUR before flight. Missed entirely. No one to help me at desk."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No cell charger. The return policy should match swa, I'll never prefer delta until the return policy matches swa. No fees. Credits can be split between flights. One year to use credit."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and appreciate gate agent's enforcement of the two personal bags per person."
Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Cons: "Went from LA to Guangzhou, China. My family checked 6 bags in. Only 5 arrived in China. My bag with ALL my clothes and ALL my meds was the one missing. I had nothing to wear (and that includes underwear) and no meds for 2 freakin’ days. Worst experience EVER!!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."
Pros: "The cockpit crew waited to turn the plan off until the Footbal playoff game was finished. I thought that was very considerate of them."
Cons: "Seats were right but that I guess is to be expected these days."
Pros: "Perfectly fine first class trip"
Cons: "Breakfast meal was awful"
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "My wife's pre-check was not added to her ticket. Plane was extremely late taking off. No entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I liked the check-in kiosk, but only because I had no bags to check. I liked being able to choose my own seat. I liked that the flight was uneventful. I liked the staff at all stages, they were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They made me shove my purse into my knapsack to fit within their two bag policy. That's a first for me. My Delta flight did not do that."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."
Pros: "I like that if you're willing to gate check your bag, Delta allows you to check in with Zone 1 boarding. Seats did have plugs, which is a huge plus."
Cons: "Touch screens on the in-seat TV were not sensitive enough, technology on board was somewhat outdated."
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with pleasant staff. I slept most of the way."
Cons: "I was satisfied with this flight and did not experience and discomfort during it"
Pros: "Friendly people and clean plane"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, I hope it shows up shortly"
Pros: "Sitting in middle isle, just get elbowed a lot."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Pros: "Delta flight attendants ultimately removing the passenger."
Cons: "The man that called the mother and her son a "F***** b****"."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."
Cons: "No free meals."
Pros: "The crew was professional and efficient. This includes the ground personnel that had to cope with a grossly overbooked flight. I was upgraded to comfort+ at the gate."
Cons: "Fed up with the .4 oz pretzels. The arrival in LAX was chaotic. We had left on-time and were told that we would arrive approx. 20 minutes early. Ha! First landing attempt had to be aborted, the landing not being cleared by the control tower. Then we cruised, circling over the Ocean, and the lights of the city again. Finally we landed. Taxiing on the tarmac was interrupted many times, and took overall 30 minutes. The pilot kept informing us. I was probably not the only passenger that had and urgent need to reach a bathroom... Of course, Delta should not be blamed"
Pros: "Very easy flight & process"
Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."
Pros: "We were a head of time for both flight! I never experienced this with delta. It used to be always late. I stopped flying with them for that reason. I was gladly surprised."
Cons: "The seat are very small. We were not comfortable at all."
Pros: "I fly frequently and overall the flight was great. My biggest complaint is that as a paying customer (vs non rev) I think it is kind of crazy that I did not have an assigned seat until I walked onto the plane. I really disliked tjis process. I found it to be an unnecessary stress. When I asked the gate agent about it I didn't get a clear answer as to where I will be sitting. I'd much rather know what my seat number is before I board the plane. Other then this bizarre process. Everything was great."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and not helpful. The checkin counter at the Sydney airport is hidden. Better signage would be helpful in locating the area"
Pros: "Delta is one of the best airlines I've flown with. Staff is very helpful, and customer service and amenities are tip notch."
Cons: "For some reason , we we did not have seat until the day we left, they ended up placing us in the back. Not that I mind sitting in the back, it was just a scary thought that we didn't have assigned seat when I bought the tickets- I remember picking my seat"
Pros: "Nice flight. Early arrival. Had a complementary beer onboard. Luggage in less than 20 mins."
Pros: "EVERYONE WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "NOTHING ON THIS PART TRIP WAS FINE"
Pros: "Crew are nice people"
Cons: "Not very comfortable and food are not good"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Same all the crew were just on point."
Pros: "I liked that this airline still feeds it's travelers a good meal during flights."
Pros: "Everything but the bathroom."
Cons: "The bathroom situation. Long line to use the bathroom and they will not let you used the one in first class."
Pros: "Crew members were polite, the food was good, more entertainment options"

Cons: "Tried to indicate vegan/vegetarian when I checked in online, but was already too late. This doesn’t make sense!"
Pros: "The staff/flight crew was amazing. Films and music selection were great and best of all free. Food and drinks came around at the perfect time."

Pros: "Crew was excellent and very kindly..."
Cons: "The waiting area was too crowded..."
Pros: "Leaving the plane when it landed."
Cons: "Second time in a five day span where i didn't have a seat because they overbooked and over sold. The first time resulted in a two day delay and they tried to blame my connecting flight when , in fact, they had oversold the flight. The reps at LAX were horrific. The only She was awful. manager refused to talk to me about the issue as she had other customers to take care of...devil spawn. No help. I had to call the online number to get another flight and they tried numerous times to talk to her but she refused. Yet, I would see devil spawn on her phone laughing and joking and talking... but too busy to help the consumer. She was awful. Horrible."
Pros: "The service was ok but they seemed like young jokers who were there just for their job (money) and less to make our experience good. They were always hanging out and laughing in the back."
Cons: "Someone should remind people in English and Spanish that the screens on the back of the seats are light touch. The lady behind me kept pounding in it until I asked her nicely not to and I think she didn't speak English so she just looked angry and shrugged me off. It was quite a problem for me."
Pros: "Food wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Crew didn't know what food was being served. Poor variety of movies to choose from. Not enough options of movies and TV shows to watch. The temperature on the cabin was freezing."

Cons: "We spent 20 minutes after reaching the gate in LAX for a jetway to deplane. There was not only a security checkpoint in PTY transferring from David to the LAX flight, but another security checkpoint AT THE GATE! Having just overpaid $3 for a bottle of water past the 1st checkpoint, I then had to pour it out at the gate checkpoint. Nothing to indicate that there was a 2nd checkpoint with the same liquid restrictions."
Pros: "Service ok and pty airport efficient"
Cons: "Little space in between the seats. Would like Wi-Fi on the plane. With headed to Los Angeles"
Cons: "The most unprofessional crew I have ever encountered."
Pros: "The crew was hospitable, and were all men.. It was refreshing as opposed to women who seem to be more impatient. It was a good crew."
Cons: "It smelled like urine. Perhaps one of the seats were urined on, and it just reeked. I did not like that they ran out of the only thing i could eat. I do not recall ever being asked what food allergies I have. I was unfortunately seated in the back and did not have the luxury of choosing my meal. Also, my seat would not recline on one of my flights.. the port to connect my USB did not work either."
Pros: "The internal crew at the airplane."
Cons: "I bought a duty-free bag at the Colombian airport specifically for storing liquids (namely two bottles of alcohol) and was told this was standard procedure. The bag was not to be opened until my final destination (Los Angeles). Long story short, when I arrive at the Panama airport they insist that they are going to have to throw the alcohol away despite the fact that I bought it in a duty-free zone at another airport and had not left said zone in this airport. It was also obvious the alcohol had not been tampered with as the bag I purchased was sealed tightly (some sort of glue). I had to take my son's personal carry-on (a backpack), take all of his things out of it, and check the bag as checked-in luggage. The Panaminian airport staff claimed I would still have issues in Los Angeles. They were completely wrong - no officer made any sort of comment about it since the alcohol was still in the sealed bag with a notice that said it would not be opened until the final destination. Incredibly unprofessional behavior."

Pros: "Timely, good food, good staff, free alcohol"

Pros: "its was very, very good. all the personal was nice. Congratulations in the future a thing fligth with copa."
Pros: "The crew was very nice onboard. Good entertainment"
Cons: "The airline personnel doing security check-in in Panama made up a TSA rule that doesn't exist and confiscated an *empty* plastic bottle from me that I was purposely saving, kinda irritating. The bathrooms were once again completely disgusting, eww."
Cons: "I liked the food but I think the second meal should have vegetables"
Pros: "Great service. Good food and drinks. Very polite."
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "the crew and the food"
Pros: "Good interteiment. U atención good."
Pros: "How nice not to be charged for every little thing!! The food was great and plentiful. The movies were current and various. Service was excellent!"
Pros: "Not much to brag about unfortunately. Best part was that the flight was quick."
Cons: "To start, the flight was overbooked and of course groups 4-5 had to check their luggage. So frustrating. One of the attendants scanning tickets told me I had to check my bag and it wouldn't fit the standard size anyways. So ridiculous because my bag absolutely fit and meets the checked baggage size for most all planes including United/copa. She was so rude in her delivery of the information which was uncalled for. Quick flight but drink and snack service didn't get started until very late. Last 5-6 rows didn't get served. Flight attendants seemed off their game. Not super friendly, snappy, and they were very rushed. Tons of turbulence and not a lot of context given from the captain on what was going on. Happy to get off the flight safely but quickly; I wasn't a fan."
Pros: "The food was OK."
Cons: "Bad customer service. I asked the flight attendants for a blanket and none response to my request and gave me no explanation.. very disappointin. When checking in online I was assigned a different seat and it took forever to get confirm.. need to improve online check in service."
Cons: "I bought a wine and it got lost"

Cons: "No lounge access"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful"
Pros: "simple no frills plane crew was polite (they are canadians after all!)"
Cons: "During my booking I ended up with my return flight being on the same day as my departing flight. I was surprised that this was not noticed as I would not have even reached Vancouver before I was scheduled to return. My fault too as I did not look at the tickets when I printed then off before we left Fortunately there was only a 120.00 charged to change our tickets. I am just thankful my husband noticed the day before we got to the airport to come home as the flight was totally booked."
Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."
Pros: "Very polite & nice !!"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working. I did not have anything to watch my entire 6 hours flight from Toronto to San Jose California. My connecting flight/airline was changed on the day of my flight. Not really a problem as the time was the same."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "More leg room in seat than expected."
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"
Pros: "Great flight. It was like the plane wasnt even moving !!"
Pros: "Nothing nobody"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats! No access to music movies or kindle though it said it has free entertainment. Nobody knew how to get access to the movies. Instructions are wrong and loop around with no results. Attendant said she’d comp a drink but didn’t . Boarded late and disorderly. Mean gate lady. Left an hour late. Home an hour late."
Pros: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Cons: "Check in process was brutal. Two different pieces of advice from two different agents. Boarding from front to back of plane is inefficient. Creates clogged aisles."
Pros: "On time Flight. Nice and friendly staff. Assistant at the check in Kiosk."
Cons: "Inattentive baggage security and check personnel."
Pros: "Good amount of leg room. The children were well behaved."
Pros: "The female flight attendant and the pilot spoke reassuringly and with friendliness."
Cons: "This was the most negative experience I’ve ever had flying Westjet. The female flight attendant was wonderful, fun and friendly and professional. The two younger male attendants were incredibly rude, rolled their eyes, ignored me, put themselves first (at one point instead of making room for me to return to my seat the blond one insisted I let him pass when it was unsafe for me to do so and nowhere for me to go). I felt demoralized by these two men and it’s both surprised and disappointed me as Westjet staff have a reputation for friendliness. These two men will Discourage me from flying Westjet when travelling to LA again. Not pleasant. Again the women was lovely. I tried to catch the male names but they wouldn’t stop and face me for long enough for me to see their name tags. They seemed to have some inside jokes between them and gave me the sense my requests were not welcome or respected. I am a nervous flyer and this was such a difficult and uncomfortable Experience."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but it was due to weather, so it is really out of westjets hands."
Pros: "Nice service and efficient boarding since the plan shed Of us at the terminal was delayed for weather reasons. Tasty food, the wrap was great."
Cons: "For a newer plane, it seemed like tighter seat space. Surprisingly harder to get comfortable compared to other plans and it seemed like the seats Space even betwee me and another passenger was tighter than the many other times I flew."
Cons: "How is it that in a 5 hours flight you don’t be get any food for free? You have to pay for every meal. And the entertainment system isn’t only available through the west je to app but i didn’t know that until I board the plane wtf"

Pros: "The ticket price was great. The crew were nice."
Cons: "There is no monitor in front of you/in-plane, so bring your own tablet"

Cons: "delayed 2 hours and I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Both flights were a half hour late in taking off, and arrival."
Cons: "I dislike that westjet tried to get me to pay for my seats when I initially bought the ticket, only to discover later that the seats are free if I choose them at check in. I didn’t pay the seat charge but there is a breach of trust in them trying to con me that makes me not want to fly with them again."
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "The stewardesses were very pleasant and helpful..."
Cons: "Generally announcemect is too fast and not clear, especially the boarding anouncement regarding the order of boarding is not clear. Please be more considerate for the aged and hard of hearing, infrequent traveller."
Pros: "Was very windy when leaving Hamilton but the captain handled the flight so smoothly that I was able to sleep through most of it!"
