Pros: "OnLine Check-in worked intuitive and the Avianca-crew are in general good people"
Cons: "There were no movies avaible on the entertainment system. Only television-alike stuff. Was okay, but could be better"
Pros: "Way to go AVIANCA, changing the craft for a bigger one was a great idea!!!"
Pros: "The crew was ok, the seats just needed to recline a bit more"
Cons: "The crew gave the passenger across from me at least 4 glasses of liquor and he got drunk. This was an evening flight, the passenger was loud and I couldn't close my eyes and sleep"
Pros: "The service of the counter personnel"
Cons: "They delayed my flight added another stop didn’t get back to LA till midnight when I should have been home for dinner."
Pros: "It’s was all good great service and great stuff"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything...."
Pros: "I always try to book a flight with Avianca when traveling to Central America and South America .good food..excellent service"
Cons: "My luggage arrived damaged. Avianca told me they can reimburse me for US200 in miles for the inconvenience. My luggage certainly is worth more than US200 in miles. Certainly it is very hard to damaged a Samsonite ultralight (carbon fiber) and also certainly it is worth close to US 500. I am going to arrive to my final destination in Toronto with my claim and see what happened. I hope Avianca will honour me to either repair my luggage in Toronto or exchange it for another one similar."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very poor baggage drop, sandwiches were poor"
Cons: "Really bad experience with the airline. Changed flight without previous notice, plus after that all flights were delayed and they were not interested in helping uf"
Pros: "Service on time and on point"
Cons: "Nothing really, had a good experience"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and don’t want to travel with avianca any more, all the time it’s the same with avianca domestic flights, to many hours waiting"
Cons: "Old planes. Bad attitude of the crew. Remote unboarding"
Pros: "The planes are typically new"
Cons: "Departure time was 14:47. To be in waiting area 13:47. We started "boarding" (getting on the bus) at app 14: 17 or so. That's when the "fun" started. Bus arrives at plane, which apparently was all but ready for boarding (the stairs were not at plane. Must have waited (with two buses behind us) for half hour or more. Then the stairs were moved to the plane for boarding (or so we thought). Bus driver moved to the stairs, but cocky co-pilot found it more important to argue with bus driver. At certain point, we drove off again, with one bus following and other bus, believe it or not, went on plane. Back at the waiting room, absolutely NOBODY provided info. Police was brought into the waiting area for "comfort". Back to the plane at 16:00 or something. So far, no excuses, or explanations. At certain point the cocky co-pilot and captain were "exchanged" for new cockpit crew. At that time it seemed the announcement system wasn't working properly. Engineers on board etc. At 17:17, 2.5 hrs after scheduled departure, the captain welcome's passengers. As if NOTHING has happened, no apologies and/or explanations for 2.5 hr delay!!!! It is shocking how the crew dealt with this and the complete lack of respect for its passengers!!!!"
Pros: "The planes were nice."
Cons: "I had to run in San Salvador to make the plane"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No options for entertainment."
Pros: "Nos encanta el servicio al cliente de los que nos atendieron en el vuelo, excelentes"
Pros: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "The crew was absolutely horrible, both on ground and on board, they had no clue was customer service is, very unexpected from a big company like this..."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "The staff in the Cali airport were helpful in getting a new ticket for me when I couldn't make my connecting flight after the initial delay."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed minutes before boarding in Cali, Colombia and I wasn't going to make my connecting flight in Bogota so I had to be given a new flight."
Pros: "Nothing. We were unvoluntearly bumped off the plane as we were boarding. No one told us we were Standby."
Cons: "We waited for ever to be told when we would fly out again, our luggage was almost lost."
Cons: "The flight was delayed out of JFK for some unknown reason (definitely not weather or missing plane since it was the first flight of the morning). Several passengers were told their connecting flight would definitely be held for them. A few of us asked for a guarantee because we would rather pay to rebook another flight than get stuck, and the gate attendents at JFK said it was certain we would make our flights. Once we got to El Salvador we were told they never intended to hold our flights. Avianca agents there told the handful of us going to Cancun we we're rebooked on Copa Airline and would have to go to Panama first, then Cancun, and arrive around 10 pm instead of 11 am. Other passengers were stuck in El Salvador for even longer. For our trouble, they only offered a $70 voucher for Avianca which is essentially useless to most of us since it has extensive restrictions. On top of this, the plane seating was small and the food was terrible. When we got switched to Copa there was at least slightly more leg room and better food. Do not fly Avianca!!"
Cons: "Bring your own entertainment. Not even sure what is on board but appeared to be not much to choose from."
Pros: "The airport in bogota is amazing great staff indeed avianca needs more organization skills when it comes o boarding people in other words making sure the staff controls the situation indeed te overall experience flying with avianca was amazing"
Pros: "The route, not much waiting time, the food."
Pros: "La atención y su comida"
Cons: "Que mis maletas las 4. no llegaron a Guayaquil y me quedé en ascuas por que son muy importantes. Espero que mañana 28/917 me la envíen como lo Acordado."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours lost conection to Istanbul and change the business for economy in the last fly"
Cons: "El sistema de check in es muy malo, demoran mucho en cada pasajero y están mal organizados, con poco personal disponible, y en una sola fila con mal sistema de llamado. En esto deberían seguir el benchmark de Latam."
Cons: "I never got to my destination on the date I want it"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Much better flight: bigger plane, more spacious interior, didn't feel claustrophobic at all, managed to nap"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "We had a 6 hour delay after traveling all day and being up all night. The actual flight, when we finally got on, was packed and uncomfortable. Our seats didn't recline and were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "On Time, Great Staff"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour late"
Pros: "I like the comfort measures of this ~2.5 hour flight each way trip without being "nickel and dimed" like what happens on the so-called "economy" airlines."
Pros: "Good airplane and service"
Cons: "Avianca charged my account twice for the cost of the ticket, now the bank says I have to talk to Avianca and Avianca says I have to talk to the bank. It's very annoying to spend hours listening to endless messages in both ends, the bank and the airline, and not being able to get me money back!"
Pros: "Flights were on time regardless of weather conditions, very corteous crew, the meals were delicious. A very comfortable experience."
Pros: "Everything was great..."
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "We landed in Ny around 8:33 pm, I was able to get my bags out of the carrousel at 10:10 pm!! Unbelievable how slow it was!"
Cons: "We had to wait too long in the bus in front of the airplane, before we could get in!! The bus was packed, so that was very uncomfortable!!"
Pros: "The seat (space, comfort, cleanliness) was good"
Cons: "The crew (flight attendants) need to be trained much better if Avianca hopes to be a international airline. The attendants spend too much time sitting in the back of the plane and not enough checking for excess trash, customer comfort and general visibility. During the in-flight meal I found an object that looked like a piece of a plastic tie. I gave it to the flight attendant but she appeared unconcerned and indifferent to the situation, making no apology what so ever."
Pros: "The staff, including the gtound staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Nothing! On the flight back I was sick and couldn't walk to take the connection and they left me.. Made come back on a flight next they and made me pay an additional cost! What a unhuman Arline!"
Pros: "everything is just perfect, is like flight on executive class without pay the extra money from an economy class."
Pros: "The flights were on time, with great service."
Cons: "No entertainment system"
Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
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."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Flight was on time/ early."
Cons: "Have hot water for coffee and outlets for phones"

Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"
Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "Temperature was too cold"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
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!"
Entertaining was limited for such long flights. The crew was good
Pros: "good crew. great seats."
Cons: "I would like to have tv screens in flights from Bogota to Panama. No entertainment at all. But from Panama to Miami it was perfect."
Pros: "Employees so so not friendly"
Cons: "More professionally"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable for long flights."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The only entertainment option is the mini screen every three rows."
Pros: "The information provided prior to the flight and online booking experience."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants Rude gate / entry attendants No tvs in the seats. I am vegetarian and was not given a vegetarian option! Very Inconsiderate of this airline."
Pros: "Excellent flight. So fast"
Cons: "There should be tv screens on each chair and the choice to choose what we want to watch."
Cons: "New aircrafts, the chairs are falling apart n"
Pros: "Crew was great and boarding easy"
Cons: "Copa Airlines has the worse entertainment system. I flew business and the food was pathetic. If you are sitting at the last two rows (out of four), they might run out of options for dinner and you are left without choices. I feel sorry for the crew that have to come to you and say "I only have left chicken ". Very cheap airline overall. I can't believe this is Star Alliance."
Cons: "Some food"
Pros: "COPA offers excellent service! Their newer aircrafts have individualized monitors on each head rest for added control of what one wishes to view. Clean and spacious aircraft. Nice crew and bountiful beverage/ meal service. Fair luggage allowance and flight options will keep us coming! Keep it up!"
Cons: "Panamanian TSA has a second checkpoint at each gate. This means you get the general check we are all used to, but at the gate there's a second patdown and x-ray where liquids purchased inside the terminal are discarded or you have to exit the gate area to drink it! People had to give up their sealed, duty free bags and we had to give up our cans of soda we had just purchased. Fuller disclosure- in Spanish and English- should be given to patrons at stores and BEFORE entering the gate to avoid displeasure. We know drug traffickers are slick, but innocent people don't appreciate the inconvenience. My son's blunt tip, plastic, safety scissors were also taken at this airport because of the thin "blade" affixed to the plastic, but it left the USA in his school pencil case without any issues on our way there."
Pros: "They serve a meal on most flights."
Cons: "When something goes wrong, like when our flight was oversold, the customer service is deplorable at best."
Pros: "We were 7 people traveling together with 4 kids and the system gave us the emergency exit seats, the check in took over one hour (both ways) once inside I have to ask passengers to change seats with my kids because the crew didn’t do it"
Cons: "Nothing, plane is old."
Pros: "Lo mejor fue la atencion de la azafata colombiana el avion era peque aunque prefiero q sea de 2 butacas de cada lado ... Lo mejor fue el precio Kayal gracias."
Cons: "No es un servicio sobresaliente"
Cons: "Lost luggage and lost connecting flight"
Pros: "The service was good, and food tasty. Legspace was good."
Pros: "They offer food and free alcohol. This is not common any longer in the US."
Cons: "In Panama City during a layover, we had to go through security a second time."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. I was "upgraded" to exit row at the counter without asking, so the extra legroom was appreciated. Counter personnel and air crew were uniformly pleasant and helpful. The COPA manager in Boston pitched in during the busy check-in time and was very supportive of his staff."
Cons: "Food was mediocre quality, though cold things were cold and hot things hot."
Pros: "The welcoming and attentive service"
Pros: "Good service and love not having to change airlines"
Cons: "Food wasnt good and there was no entertainment"
Pros: "Business Class service in Economy! Free checked luggage. Warm meals for dinner. Sandwiches for Breakfast and Lunch. You can even choose different options: Vegan, Gluten free or Kosher. ALL drink options ...., even ALCOHOL !"
Cons: "No Entertainment at all! No individual Screens in seats. Could not replace with my own due to No power for my devices"
Pros: "I liked that this airline still feeds it's travelers a good meal during flights."
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Cons: "Entertainment options were not that great. The cabin service takes really long."
Cons: "My seat would not recline and when I mentioned this to the flight attendant, she said it was because it was an aisle seat. Safety was her reason. Other aisle seats I have had did recline. The result, was back pain. I have repeatedly tried to have my last two trips to Chile and Colombia register frequent flyer miles on Copa. I was not able to figuire out how to do this on the web site. When I asked for help at the Copa counter, I was told it can only be done on the web site. Fortunate, my recent trip to and from Ecuador did register frequent flyer miles."
Pros: "Service was sastisfying"
Pros: "The pilot was great st explaining the flint and not where we were."
Cons: "They forgot my gluten free meal and didn’t tell me until I was on the plane. Can we count on you to feed us? Apparently not. How can an airline forget a meal for a passenger? Especially in such a long flight?"
Cons: "Didn’t like the options available, reduced"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."
Pros: "The service, the food, the Copa Club"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Small airplane with no updated entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 45 minutes until pilot decided to say that it was for high density traffic in the airport not believable same traffic as every day there was an employee that boarded about half hour after everyone had boarded . No entertainment system only overhead for commercials"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "One of my bags (which had gone missing for 24 hrs on a previous COPA flight from Chicago to Panama) had items missing when it finally arrived in Belize. This WAS NOT theft but rather some rough handling causing items to fall out. This I understand will be down to the baggage crews and not the airline itself."
Pros: "Tve crew on the aircraft. Is ver friendly"
Pros: "It was much easier than I thought switching from one airline to another. Everyone coordinate together very well and it went very smoothly."
Cons: "Very rude"
Pros: "attendants were very friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "Business class seats were really economy seats in a closed section (this is the norm on flights operated by Copa Columbia)."
Pros: "Agent issued boarding passes and luggage ticket but somehow didn't process payment. After waiting 4 hours for boarding we were denied entry into plane. Somehow agent overrode the safeguards and was able to issue boarding pass. Very lax security and agent even denied seeing credit card given to them."
Cons: "Ticket counter personell"
Cons: "They wasnt any meal for vegetarian person."
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived in Panama City on time which was great for our connection. In- flight movies were good as was the food and drinks. Leg space was better than some airlines. Plane was nearly full."
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"
Pros: "Attentive crew members."
Pros: "Punctuality and service were great!"
Cons: "All was well"
Cons: "I liked the food but I think the second meal should have vegetables"
Too many delays from start to finish of the trip
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Overstuffed storage bins. Absolutely chaotic and abysmal boarding process"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding and great crew!!"
Cons: "Hello, I just needed to voice my dissatisfaction with this fight. I’m not sure if every Westjet flight I was lucky and had amazing crew members or if the staff on this flight was having a bad flight. Our flight was delayed by 75min. The flight crew did not attend to any requests from the customers for the 75min we were on the tarmac. I asked for headphones and the crew member look agitated I asked made a remark about how nobody buys them so she didn’t know how much they are. She said she would come back with the price, and did not. I had to wait for the beverage cart and then order them again. Then I asked for an additional can of ginger ale. The gentleman said he’ll need to come back (as he was cleaning the garbage). He never came back. I had to hit the assistance button again and got the original woman. Once again agitated and when I asked she said to wait for the beverage cart again. After another 10-15min they started the beverage service again. On previous flights there were delays, shorter like 30min westjet crew members gave free headphones. And those are the kind of experiences I’ve come to expect from westjet. Not the free aspect but flight crew that care about the customers. The entire crew on this flight was agitated and annoyed from boarding and it definitely showed. Small things like even a smile or even sorry everyone, would’ve gone a long way. But when the crew doesn’t care the flight gets 10x longer, and when the flight is already delayed by 25% of the flight duration it comes to a point where you’re counting down the seconds to get out. The delay was unfortunate and out of the control of the company and crew but that doesn’t mean the crew couldn’t still make it into a memorable experience for the guests."
Cons: "It was 30+ mins late and they didn’t keep us updated. Missed my connection"
Pros: "Crew was great. Delayed by mechanical issue. Weather was bad in Montreal so delayed again. Mechanical issue is a pain but I'd rather not crash so all in all very good. Really windy at landing, pilots did a great job. Respect!"
Cons: "Just a heads up, if you're a large person, weight wise, you may have a challenge using the rest room. It's pretty small."
Cons: "Flight left late. Sat on tarmac almost 1.5 hours with little explanation. No water until in the air. Poor allocation of overhead space for luggage - free for all by passengers. A miserable experience."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly on this short flight"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Newest 787 plane in the fleet. Really comfortable seats and terrific in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "Having media provoded to my device"
Cons: "Could not select seat after checking in - could, for. A $45 fee"
Cons: "When tavelling with a child, which is always identified at the time of booking by providing child's age, every other airline was able to accommodate seating together. Even at the lowest fare class. Not Westjet, their automatic computer seating assignment gave us seats in separate rows !! When asked at the checkin and also again at the gate, we were told that the fare class that we paid for does not allow seat changes. They simply would not seat a parent and a child together unless we paid extra $25/person to change seats. This kind of gauging for money was shocking. Especially when there were 3 other rows behind us with free seats together !! This was clearly a case of wanting more money. At the lowest fare class parents travelling with children can expect the child to be sitting separately from them. Or pay up more."
Cons: "Sitting at departure gate waiting for two passengers to get kicked off, hard landing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The waiting area, lateness of the plane"
Pros: "Amazing Service at the registering counter at the airport. One for the two flight attendants was very nice. Unfortunately, he was not the one assigned to my section."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was incredibly dismissive. “Forgot” to ask for my order to get lunch, so needed to call him so he could take my order (he was already in the middle of eating his own food) and of course by then what I asked for was not available, and the options for food were bad. On top of that, the trash from the top of my table was not cleared for a long, long, long time (even though everyone else’s in my section were clean). First time this happens to me in all my years of flying, specially in upper economy class."
Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."
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: "Great leg room...clean"
Cons: "All of the onboard staff was great except for one. She was visible grumpy. She was rude to an elderly couple sitting next to me. Her impatience with them ended up that she didn't get their drink order right. She challenged them on whether they really said they wanted milk and sugar or just sugar. Then she rolled her eyes and huffed and puffed about someone else waiting to get down the aisle after going to the bathroom. The client was had patience and was talking to those around her. The server was verbally frustrated and everyone knew by her words and facial expressions. There was an elderly lady with a cane who she was very brusk and impatient with. Her tone was condesending and dismissive."
Pros: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "Overall service on the flight."
Cons: "The management of carry on luggage on the flight. It seems that there is no control over the placement of carry on luggage in relation to seat selection. many people entering the aircraft drop of luggage in the bins close to the front of the cabin even when they are sitting at the rear... Simple solution would be to assign luggage based on zone. Zone A to Be Window seat. Zone B to be a centre seat and Zone C to be Aisle seat. Designate a portion of the overhead bin to be A, B and C like the seats. Ensure that baggage is transported to the seat designated."
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: "I went through customs and then walked via escalators and moving walk ways to b4. It took me almost a hour. I was the last to board I am sure And had to collect my own luggage and take it from one point to another. I am 70. thank god, when I got on the plane I sat in 3a and was offered a free glass of wine. halleluya. I was exhausted Toronto airport is always a nightmare. I travel a lot and will avoid this airport if I can. I do like West jet but Delta /west jet connection means I have to take my bag from one place to another and I walked miles and could have missed my flight. I am tired. I am going to bed"
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"
Cons: "snow caused my flight to be cancelled instead of the direct flight to nyc i flew via Atlanta. due to the timings of the flight - landing at 2.30 am, leaving at 7.30 am - i had no option but to sleep on the airport floor i will try to avoid fliying with westjet in future - staying loyal to air canada - to avoid the risk of such a terrible flight diversion"
Pros: "I liked the fact that all the movies food and beverages were included in my Plus seat."
Cons: "This was my first time booking a PLUS seat and never realized that row 2A seat sucks. Its a bulkead row seat that is by the window. This seat was worse to sit in than any other seat on the plane. This seat is located were the plane starts to curve in toward the front of the plane reducing the seat width, I have a 33" waist and it was tight. The arm wrests in this row don't come up as they stow your table, as well the leg room is only as good as a regular seat because of the bulkhead location. So FYI do not book this seat on a long flight."
Pros: "The information given by the pilot overhead was timely and well delivered. The flight was smooth and we arrived safely."
Cons: "We sat for 4 hours on the runway. Aside from 1 crew member, they were impersonal, rude, and unaccomodating. They pilot spoke overhead very pleasantly and apologetically and encouraged walking around and using the restroom but they crew gave everyone a hard time. There was no offer of complementary food service or compensation for anyone despite being on the plane for double the amount of time planned. Finally, the in flight entertainment worked for maybe half hour of the actual flight with no explanation or acknowledgement."
Pros: "There was one nice, friendly flight attendant. Nice to have a variety of beverages and pretzels offered (I feel I don't expect this anymore from domestic flights-- usually just expecting the coffee or water option)."
Cons: "The seats were up there with the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced--mostly due to the lack of ability to recline. I feel a four hour flight is sufficiently long enough to provide people some space to relax. We were delayed for whatever reason, lack of communication from staff to the passengers that were boarded really quite early (perhaps too early). One of the staff, while nice enough, was being a bit snarky to people as they were trying to, what I thought was helpfully, give them their garbage."
Pros: "The flight and the seating was comfortable. Food served was fine too."
Cons: "Well, they mixed up my check-in luggage during transit. As a result it got delayed and I had to spend the night without it. Although, I was informed about this miss when I landed in Vancouver, the team did not seem to feel particularly bad about it. Also, the process of getting reimbursed for the predefined expenditure allowance needs to be more efficient. Ideally, in such cases, the airlines should not only refund the check-in fee, but also provide a prepaid card to make any urgent purchases. Their current process requires one to bear the expenses initially, scan/click and send the original receipts and await a response from their baggage team. I am waiting to hear back from them on my submission."
Pros: "Our flight boarded on time, flew on time, with great crew service."
Cons: "Landing was delayed by weather and we circled for 45 minutes after a speedy, early flight."
Pros: "Excellent from phone courtesy to every aspect of travelling with them."
Cons: "Well organized. Courteous at every step. Other airlines should emulate them in every way. Travelled all over the world and would rate them as best so far."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
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: "Westjet connect on board. Snacks. No problem to get our bags."
Cons: "The waiting on the tarmac ( 1:00) with a young child. We arrived 2:30 later, so the desk for rental cars was closed."
Cons: "I was given a ticket with the seat 3A (one of the plus seats); I didn't ask for it or pay for it, I just got that seat when I was checking. After I found out it was a plus seat, I acknowledged to nearby the flight attendants and nearby passengers I didn't pay for this, that there was a mistake, and I could move if there was someone who did pay for it. What I received from the flight attendants are accusatory remarks/comments about how shouldn't be there because I didn't pay for it (after I acknowledged this before anyone even had an issue about it) and passive excuses that didn't make much sense when I asked them why there ws this issue in the first place. I was fine with moving seats from what I was initially assigned to, I was fine with being moved twice thereafter (first moving to 21E, then to 23E). What I was not fine with was 1. the accusatory tone by the flight attendants that I tried to take someone else's seat 2. even though I was given the seat by the person at the check-in desk when I didn't even ask for it and 3. after I was the one who initially brought up this issue in the first place and was willing to changet seats with he rightful passenger. Please learn to take responibility for your actions and mistakes and errors rather than blaming it on a passenger who just wants a safe flight home. Thanks."
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Everything mostly went smoothly."
Cons: "Cannot use the in-flight entertainment system due to not having the WestJet app. Not able to download the app in flight. WestJet should at least provide a $0.99 internet option for 5 minutes, or allow free internet access to the App store for a few minutes to download the WestJet app."
Cons: "Didn't fly on the day I was supposed to fly due to delays. I had to figure out for myself that I wasn't going to make my connection and thus I went back home. We agreed to itinerary for the next day that had a 2+ hour wait at la Guardia and yet I still almost missed the N.Y. to Tampa flight due to delays out of toronto. Had to sprint from one terminal to the other. In Toronto we sat on the tarmac for 90 mins, and this was after dealing with security and other issues with checkin before i even got on the plane. For example, it was difficult to explain that i had already paid for my checked bag the day before. As a result I never got a chance to eat the entire day. And then my bag didn't get to Tampa until later that night anyways. Although the individual staff members were all very nice, there were institutional flaws that made two days very frustrating. I have some sort of debilitating delay on more than half my flights over the last few years, and rarely is there ever an explanation or compensation."
Pros: "We took off, we flew, we landed and walked away."
Cons: "5hrs and 9min flight time. Add boarding and alighting at the other end - adds up to over 6 hours travel time. WestJet will supply you with a coffee or tea and a cookie, pretzel or cheese stick packet. Wow! You get to watch fair selection of movies etc on your own phone or tablet - IF you have downloaded the app BEFORE you leave the terminal.Wow! If you need to wait for the bathroom the stewardess tells you to wait in the aisle behind row 3... really? So I can't just stand here in the galley and wait... no sir, behind row 3. Best advice - fly Air Canada - these guys do not deserve your money!"
Pros: "Kayak was great to book through. Very simple. Plane ride there was great."
Cons: "Plane ride home wasn't good due to the airplane propellers being louder then usual and noisy, a little unsettling."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and we arrived in Cancun early which was great."
Cons: "The cabin was freezing. I fly often and I always pack a sweater and a blanket but even that couldn’t keep me warm because the cabin was so cold Also, my meal that I purchased on the flight was frozen all the way through. It was literally like biting into a popsicle. My teeth hurt for the rest of the flight after just one bite. I asked for another sandwich which took a while because they were busy with other passengers. My replacement sandwich felt just as cold but it wasn’t frozen solid like the first one. It seems like a minor inconvenience but it became quite frustrating."
Cons: "I had to pay for internet to download the app to watch movies"
Pros: "Lots of room- great aircraft"
Pros: "Staff on the ground and in the air were great - nice, polite and funny"
Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"
Pros: "Haven't flown Westjet in years. Don't know why but I don't have sore kneecaps, was served great coffee, the stewards always smiled and had funny things to say, and the gate keepers were happy and honest. I'm going to be a frequent flyer now for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like....um....nope. no complaints"
Cons: "I was traveling with a piece of artwork and had to check it in oversized luggage, but as I was going through customs, I wasn't allowed in, because the Westjet team couldn't find it. I was escorted to their waiting zone, where I spent 1.5 hours waiting in limbo trying to figure out what I could do. Thank goodness the flight was delayed 80 minutes, because I was finally able to make the flight with 2 minutes to spare after running to the gates. The flight time, 65 minutes. I find it hard to believe the flight got delayed an entire flight. To couple that, when the plane landed in LGA (where I am as I write this), we're stranded on the runway because we don't have clearance to pull into our taxi area."
Pros: "At 6’9” tall, it was decent"
Cons: "Not on the flight"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Pros: "Everything was on time considering the heavy Holidays travels."
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Cons: "I got assigned seats but when we got our boarding passes we were seated several rows apart, not in the seats I got when tickets were purchased months earlier. So we got reassigned to near back of plane, not at window seats, near several families with small loud children!! Not pleasant!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Pros: "No amazing crew, just average. The should airline should have follow through on a specific request, but the airline's computer wipes out such things."
Cons: "Airlines should listen to the requests of the passengers."
Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Pros: "Fast boarding, flight relatively smooth, got to my destination pretty quickly as well."
Pros: "Seating was comfy with techy was to entertain yourself."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to the plane not being ready. Baggage handling absolutely destroyed my wife’s new luggage. Her suitcase came with a cover to help keep it clean. The cover was ripped in several locations and the whole side of her suitcase was blown out. We will have to purchase new luggage."
Cons: "Typical tight seating, aircraft showing age."
Cons: "The wifi signup process not seemless with Android."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the flight attendant was very helpful with all the questions I had, thanks for the wonderful first time flying."
Cons: "Nothing give a 10/10"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Pros: "Even thou flight was delayed we arrive at a decent time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours due mechanical issue Missed connecting flight Waited in line for 2 hours for a hotel comp. had to pay 20$ to get to hotel because there was no shuttle Still stuck in Dallas. Never made it to Sam fran. Extremely disappointed I expect compensation"
Cons: "The drink service came a little late in the flight... but that is a suggestion more than a complaint."
Pros: "Crew on and off plans were helpful and nice."
Cons: "Delayed for hours for a short one hour flight with multiple gate switches."
Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."
Cons: "KTerrible coffee. Tasted stale"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Pros: "good price and a good route"
Cons: "This turned out to be a 'code share' flight operated by American Airlines. As such, neither Qantas nor American Airlines would allow me to buy premium seats so we could have extra leg room. They said the 'code share' blocks seat sales! Be ware Also found out that American Airlines does not serve meals on flights from Toronto to LAX. I was told they only serve meals on "international flights" but that I could buy a sandwich or snack. Unfortunately they only had 4 sandwiches on board , which sold within the first 2 rows of the plane!"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"
Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."
Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"
Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"
Pros: "I liked having a window seat."
Cons: "My screen was broken, so for 6 1/2 hours, I was unable to watch any movies and didn't see the safety video either."
