Pros: "Again, the crew was extremely polite and accomodating. I’d fly with them again!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, eager to help. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "This is just a poor airline in which I will never fly on again. I will blame it a lot on miscommunication but seats are horrible and need way for cushion especially if you are on a 11 hour flight."
Pros: "The seat is very comfotable. But on the fright from Japan to Bangkok very upset me and my husband. We sat seperated, but on the plane we saw 2 seats available, I asked woman crew that can we move to that seats. She went to talk with the guy who sat on the aisle seat. I heard he said he reserved"
Cons: "The seat beside him for his friend. And the crew said to me she so sorry I couldn't move to sit with my husband. But later no body beside him and he lay down 3 seats all the way. And the crew do nothing for us. We very dissapointed."
Cons: "On time is always nice. Overbooked someone in my seat when boarding. On arrival sat for a while to get into the gate on a flight that was already 90 minutes late"
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
Pros: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."
Cons: "A pair of babies wailed and cried for almost the entire 10 hour flight. Was this ANA’s fault? Of course not, but they could’ve suggested to the parents ways to help with their children."
Pros: "I was lucky the flight was not full and the seat next to mine was empty allowing me to relax and sleep well."
Pros: "I like the service. I love the food,"
Cons: "Nothing for complaining, everything is good"
Pros: "Service was impeccable, as usual, from check-in to boarding. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. Seems there is no way to adjust temperature /individual air flow on a 777-300."
Cons: "I was seated at the exit isle, ample of leg room, but the seats were very narrow. I barely fit into the seats. I noticed the seats behind had smaller arm rests so they had more space. The movies on board need upgrade."
Pros: "The flight attendents were very attentive. I started to havecan upset stomach on decent and the attendent checked in on me to see if I needed any help, she got me a botte of water and checked in on me again once we had fully landed. I really appreciated the concern and care they showed."
Pros: "Clean plane, comfy seats and great staff"
Cons: "Everything was good didn’t hate anything"
Cons: "1. Missed our flight connection in Chicago because of delayed take-off from Tokyo. We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later. 2. ANA flight attendants were not very well versed in the English language. Very hard to communicate our needs."
Pros: "The crew are all nice and helpful"
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and exceptionally polite and attentive. Possibly the best I have encountered on an international flight."
Pros: "crew and food was great"
Cons: "seat cushion was a bit on the dead side I found myself trying to figure how to fit as many folks in the same space more comfortably. Maybe swapping every other seat to face backward so we have more arm / shoulder room? Idk"
Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, the crew was very accommodating and it was very comfortable."
Pros: "crew very helpful from check in to deplane..i would suggest when arranging seat for couples or mother abd child make sure its to gether at first check in not later at another airport which was fine they did in manila..but from chicago they cant do it have to wait in japan and almost not done"
Cons: "the smell inside the airplane"
Cons: "Coming from Kulalampur to Japan I missed flight from Japan to Chicago Ground crew refused to rebook me to next flight and then argument only booked up to Chicago and I had to call USA and my daughter to help There should be ground crew at gate for people who has short time to catch to facilitate There was no body and I was couple mts late In international flights they should rebook and give hotel I was traveling business class Poor in help Comfort and flight was ok Food not much choices"
Pros: "On time. Flight attendants don't shy away from helping passengers put their carryons in the cabin compartments. They were there in a split seconf to assist you - ANA flight attendants only. Food was great in ANA airlines. Toilet is clean. Boardinh was orderly."
Cons: "More frequent offer of drinks to passengers"
Pros: "Big TV screen. Food."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, I was especially impressed when the flight attendants would intermittently clean up the restrooms- something that definitely doesn't happen on US airlines. Good food as well."
Cons: "Again, would prefer a larger selection and more change with movie choices."
Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
Cons: "It was way to hot on the plane, I actually couldn't even sleep because I was sweating so much. They give out blankets so I would think it would skew to the cool side so people can adjust themselves. Nothing you can do when it is too hot other than suffer."
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Very fast service as well."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and attentive. Lavatory was kept clean. Good choice of movies."
Pros: "Free alcohol on international flights is always a plus."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as expansive as I've seen previously."
Pros: "They had a lot of Great Movies! I was able to catch up with Kong, James Bond, The Great Wall and much, much more!"
Pros: "The ANA stuff at Chicago airport is nice and helpful"
Cons: "My mom has to stay seated "90 degree" the whole time from Tokyo to Chicago (NH12). The seat is broken and she cannot adjust it to a comfortable position"
Pros: "Good experience. Crew are kind and friendly!"
Pros: "The stewardess are the most polite and helpful I've travelled with"
Pros: "Nice crew, clean lavatory"
Cons: "Had a chance to select seats only for return flight Seats were too narrow"
Cons: "Nippon kept the planes uncomfortably warm. Also, we were not in an exit row, but our seats still didn't recline."
Pros: "As long as I didn't fly on united"
Pros: "Great service, accommodating staff. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent. Meals were perfectly portioned and delicious!!!"
Pros: "Whenever given the choice, I choose United flights operated by ANA over thiose operated by United because the ANA planes are generally newer, cleaner, have far superior on board entertainment (important for 12 hour flights) food is better and crew is more responsive/ solicitous."
Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Cons: "Flight were shaking badly several times and I feel dizzy"
Pros: "pleasant service. no surprises, delays , etc. thank you."
Cons: "why would they call it a 'hindu meal' if it includes meat?! pilot & crew a bit hard to understand when they spoke english - thick accent."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient the crew was polite, professional and helpful, seats were comfortable, and the food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Service and so much free drink."
Pros: "Excellent service and flight experience!! Thank you."
Pros: "The food was great. Very responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Could have been slightly cooler in the cabin."
Boarding instructions on one leg of my journey were not well communicated at the gate (Melbourne to Auckland)
Pros: "Turboprop, smaller plane, boarding stairs - always fun."
Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."
Pros: "very comfortable reclining seats for sleeping. It was a lot of work for the attendants setting up each bed and then taking it apart. But for me, it was much more comfortable than the flight from SFO to ACK."
Cons: "Movies did not change from November to December. I watched 3 on the way to NZ in Nov and they were still the only 3 to interest me on the return flight. Disappointed."
Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Pros: "The crew, as always, was fantastic. Very helpful and always kind. The seats are comfortable enough, considering it was a long flight, and the excellent entertainment helped the time pass quickly."
Cons: "The boarding was inconvenient. LAX has just been updated. Gerri g a bus out to the tarmac is something I expect in Africa. Can Air NZ move to a different terminal?"
Pros: "Airline is pretty good"
Cons: "I had a horrible experience booking with Kayak because normally I should be allowed two bags to check in but I was only allowed one because I booked through kayak."
Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Auckland to Chicago was fine. Chicago to Minnesota was horrible. The departure plane showed up late due to weather which is understandable. Once the plane showed up we waited for over 4 hours for a pilots to show up. Our flight could have bee managed much better, poor job by United!"
Cons: "Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "They don't greet me only the people in front and behind me. I didn't receive a meal she skipped me i don't know if you have to pay or not but the person on the left of me got one and the person the right got one"
Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Pros: "Entertainment was great, food was great, and the overall flight experience was better than the first time travelling this airline. Airhosts/esses we’re very polite as well. Would try it again soon!"
Cons: "Airhosts/esses took a long time to pick up our trays after our meal."
Cons: "Please check your visa requirements is your flight is just a stopover in NZ to AUS (or elsewhere) as I could not return due to unfair transit visa issues in NZ. Have to book another one way flight and pay. completely nuts. I was not warned anywhere till I reached the airport."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "The flight was good. The plane is very nice. The in-flight entertainment was good, but you have to pay for most shows/movies. The flight attendants were very nice. The landing was a bit rough. The plane kind of swayed/slide down the runway. But it was raining so it was understandable."
Cons: "Snacks aren't free. They ran out of food before they got to the back section of the plane. Most of the in-flight entertainment is not free."
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."
Pros: "It was operated by air New Zealand so the service was top notch once I was able to resolve all other issues boarding."
Cons: "We had a flight bought on virgin Australia and operated with air New Zealand. The air New Zealand part was all great plane boarding etc, the horrible part is that we bought baggage allowances with virgin and they never transferred the information to air New Zealand. So there I am from the USA in a foreign country boarding a flight being asked to pay 500 nz dollars for a few kilos when I had already paid for it. Having to produce emails and payment information on something I had done months in advance. Overall I won’t recommend virgin next time I’d book directly with air New Zealand"
Pros: "The seats are super comfy and the staff are lovely and very attentive to ones needs. The only down fall would be that I had to pay for movies and a meal wasn’t included with my flight, but that’s minor. Also, baggage cost me 120.AUD for one bag! I thought that was pretty outrageous for one check in bag. But the pilot was very good and informative as the overall flight was smooth. Thanks again air New Zealand."
Cons: "Over priced check in bag. Due to it not being according to weight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Cons: "I selected two bags on kayak but when I checked in at Air New Zealand they said I just had tickets. Was forced to pay the full price for the baggage."
Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Pros: "Smooth operation once onboard"
Cons: "Boarding sequence mix-up"
Pros: "The crew and plane was tops"
Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Economy was too squished. Hard to eat with people next to you."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and book seats. That was a bummer."
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Airplane to cold. Had to wear a sweatshirt and cover up with a blanket the whole flight."
Pros: "Boarding from last row first"
Cons: "Food was just okay."
Pros: "I liked having the pilot tell us about the mountains as we passed over them."
Pros: "Fabulous! Again, the Flight crew are so friendly. helpful and always smiling. The overnight flight went very fast. The dinners and hot breakfast served were beautiful. Complimentary wine with dinner was lovely."
Pros: "The food and service was great"
Cons: "Would have been more exciting to land early if our gate was ready. Better to wait on the ground than their air I guess but after 11 hours on a plane the last thing you want to do is wait longer. Realize that's on the airport and not the airline, although there should be communication there."
Pros: "Great crew, great entertainment"
Cons: "Wasn't a fan of the dinner but no big deal"
Pros: "After finding it in the airport everything went extremely well. Able to find the flights and get to the gates with plenty of time. I did not have access to my email, but did see all the notices and appreciate that. Will travel with email access in the future."
Pros: "Everything :)"
Pros: "Good with kids Clean new planes"
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: "The crew was super friendly and accommodating. They found solutions for any questions or difficulties we had. They checked any excess luggage before you boarded. Boarding the plane was done back to front which was nice in loading bags and passenger without waiting for people in front of the plane. Meal service was promptly served so complimentary alcohol. Both meals were appreciated on such a long flight."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be bottles of water that you can keep refilling."
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: "The accommodations were unexpected and amazing!"
Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
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"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
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: "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: "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: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were nice and informative, and everything was on time"
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
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: "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."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
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"
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: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
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: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
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!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, half the time the staff did not use the PA system. They were not clear on who needed to do a passport check. Started to read names off then just gave up and said "a lot of you""
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Nice people to travel with
Porter is always amazing. I feel like a VIP when I fly with you!
Cons: "Porter declined re-booking the flight due to weather conditions and forced us to purchase new tickets. Reservations made through anything other than Porter are treated poorly, service can be declined due to overbooking."
Pros: "Efficient check in. Liked the shuttle bus service from subway to airport."
Cons: "As expected this is a commuter flight so very stripped down in terms of amenities. Tight plane seating and those overhead bins just barely accommodate the carry on."
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "For a quick hop boston to toronto it was ideal"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and everything was on time."
Cons: "The ride was a bit rough at the end if the flight."
Pros: "The crew is lovely"
Cons: "Porters flights out of Toronto have been significantly delayed every time I’ve flown"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "All ok"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Fast and convenient"
Pros: "First time in 10 flights in 3 months flying with Porter in time - what a miracle!"
Pros: "Free bar nuts while delayed 10 hours"
Cons: "Kicked us out of the airport when connection cancelled, NEVER fly Porter!!!! The horror stories are true as could be"
Cons: "Justfly.com is awful and I wish kayak would stop sending customers to it. I will no longer use kayak because this is the second time my ticket has ended up being purchased through justfly."
Pros: "Once we got on the flight it was fine."
Cons: "Worst issues was official announcement that flight was cancelled and then no announcement that it was actually not cancelled. Many people went home or were standing in line waiting to rebook when the flight left. We just barely made it on because we overheard staff talking to another couple!! Not acceptable. They should have made announcements over the speakers and should have called passengers by name to come to check in. Porter had flooding problems that meant many people crowding into small space and it prevented passengers from food or drinks. They eventually handed out water. They should have provided vouchers or brought in other food and beverages."
Pros: "It was hassle free. Trace and arrival times were perfect. Thank you for caring."
Pros: "Efficient, punctual, polite and reliable"
Pros: "The service is very good. In flight snacks and drinks are complimentary."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours."
Cons: "Got to Billy Bishop, only to find out flight is delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Convenient, easy boarding, snacks and free wine on leg from toronto to chicago"
Cons: "Major delays that were poorly handled."
Cons: "no TSA precheck"
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Very small overhead compartment. Boarding procedure was chaotic."
Cons: "The flights were cancelled after everyone was already waiting for a long time for their delayed flights. Then the rebooking process took way too long after the staff at the airport said it would take 20 minutes. The website is extremely confusing about which flight you are rebooked, confirmed or on standby. After waiting at the airport for five hours, I still ended up having to spend the night in Toronto. I flew back the next day after my flight was rebooked four times... I filed a claim for hotel reimbursement, but no responses after three days...."
Pros: "I liked the lounge"
Cons: "There were a lot of people and not enough outlets"
Pros: "The service both on board and in the airport was wonderful. This helped make my trip that much more enjoyable, and can't imagine picking another airline to Canada - I will always pick Porter Airlines!"
Pros: "Onboard crew was very nice"
Cons: "Crew didn't answer any of my questions, were snappy, and rude."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Would like a sandwich instead of nuts"
Cons: "Late flight"
Pros: "Small airport. Easy to find everything. Ferry ride fun. Staff did not seem happy to be at work nor did they smile or acknowledge me. I asked 2 staff questions and was barked at: red line! And was told to get into a line that was non existent outside of security."
Cons: "I asked if I was supposed to leave my luggage in the rack that was just outside of the plane because I saw that's what everyone was doing. I was told it was my choice but that if it didn't fit in the overhead I would have to come back out and put it on the rack. I was very dismayed when I got off the plane to see that I had to wait in the hallway for quite a while until my luggage appeared. It was a real traffic jam of people. I really wish I had put my luggage in the overhead. Also, minutes before boarding we were told to go and verify our passports. It was quite a rush to run to the other end of the room, wait in line and then get to the boarding gate. I barely made it back in time even though I had been waiting there for nearly an hour ."
Cons: "If Porter was a budget airline the dreadful customer service might be partially understood, but it's not. Somebody needs to put passenger considerations into operational planning for situations where travel plans are disrupted, especially when they are because of mechanical or airline problems."
Pros: "Quick and convenient boarding, terrific airport, generous terminal lounge for relaxing pre-flight."
Cons: "Louder than a usual commercial flight, probably due to being a turboprop aircraft."
Pros: "There were mechanical delays, so Porter gave an $8 voucher to spend in the airport, which was a nice touch since I had never received that from other airlines who also had mechanical delays."
Pros: "Porter Airlines is the best I've been on within North America. Delighted that my 2nd flight was still Porter."
Pros: "Breakfast, bars, etcnithin"
Pros: "Lounge with free drinks (soda, coffee, water) and cookies/snacks! Glass drinks glasses on the plane! And leg room!"
Cons: "I fly weekly for work, but last week I got to fly to Toronto for pleasure to see my fiancé. In all of my years of traveling, I have missed a flight maybe 5 times due to traffic, weather, or other uncontrollable factors. It happened to be that on my way to Chicago Midway, there was an accident on the road that stopped traffic dead for 40 minutes. When I arrived at the airport, I begged for people to help me out by letting me cut security lines so that I wouldn't be late, but alas...others were also rushed and the TSA agents weren't too helpful. I arrived at the gate for my flight about 3 minutes late in defeat. Oh well - it happens! What was really unpleasant was that nobody would help me out. I was charged $150 to "change" my flight instead of just getting rebooked on the next one the way any other airline would happily do. And to top it all off, I was given the runaround with 3 different Porter employees diffusing responsibility. I will be moving to Toronto after the wedding but will still work out of Chicago - which means that I could provide business to Porter Airlines for the next few decades! Because of this poor service, you have lost my business. I would rather fly with another airline where customer service is a priority. Losing years of a customer's weekly business over a $150 fee seems to me to be a rather poor business model and I am sorry that the bureaucratic rules in this case could not be bent."
Cons: "The fee for my bag was too high!"
Pros: "Not sure if this is Porter Airlines or the airport, but the lounge at Billy Bishop Airport is fantastic. Free water, coffee, and snacks - it is so home-y in there, which is amazing when you are away from home :)"
Cons: "Porter lost my baggage despite such a short and easy flight for them to track. Let's see how long they take to get the luggage back to me in what condition"
Pros: "Departing from Billy Bishop is amazing. Incredibly quick and convenient. Complimentary nacks and drinks in the gate area?!"
Pros: "Porter lounge in Toronto"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The flight deleyed"
Pros: "Service. Location of both Toronto Island and Chicago Midway are closer to downtown than the bigger airports in each city."
Cons: "Porter was a nice, small, well-kept secret. Now they have expanded quite a bit and the lounge is always full, to the extent that people are sitting all over the ground. Flights are almost always late to take-off. I guess all good things must come to an end."
Pros: "Free alcohol and snacks! They don't skimp on drinks - you get a full water bottle, full can of soda, fairly large glass of wine, full can of beer - whatever you choose. Crew was extremely pleasant, kind and helpful."
Cons: "Planes were small propeller planes. Not a bad thing, just not my first choice."
Pros: "Excellent. Polite service, free (and tasty) food + beverages, (dry and otherwise) comfortable seats, other customers polite, bilingual announcements, fast + efficient. Really impressed! Good price too."
Cons: "Nothing, really! No in-flight entertainment besides a magazine, but all short flights anyway."
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "There was absolutely nothing "first class" about this flight. Cramped seats, baggage fees, terrible boarding procedures... I've experienced better service on economy flights. Never again with Delta/Westjet."
Cons: "Overstuffed storage bins. Absolutely chaotic and abysmal boarding process"
Cons: "Better, healthier food choices would be nice."
Pros: "Handled the delay professionally with full transparency."
Cons: "If this flight was just cancelled from the beginning- a lot of time wasted and did not get a refund for the cancelled flight."
Pros: "No one disturbed me while sleeping and crew was helpful when I woke as bad needed refreshments."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Communication as to why we were promoted to premier seats and service."
Pros: "The crew worked hard to ensure that we had a good flight with minimal interruptions"
Cons: "Delays always hurt, the flight was delayed yet there were no notifications and additionally the delay was closer to an hour long since boarding only started 20 minutes late."
Pros: "Roomie seat. Professional curdious crew. Fast smooth flight. Westjet connect access for entertainment."
Cons: "Seamless flight. Great staff. Thank You."
Pros: "Crew was fabulous."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hard."
Cons: "I booked a flight for Tuesday the eighth and you guys changed it to the seventh, this has never happened to me before I am furious!"
Pros: "Consistencies on bagage claim info, and changes in boarding gates."
Cons: "Inconsistencies, on my way back to montreal from the philippines, i was informed that baggage would be claimed directly to final port of destination but didnt, when i arrived at toronto i had to take my bagage and drop it off again, although my next flight would be with west jet airlines, korean air was not able to communicate well with their airline partners as to bagage claim and changes in boarding gates."
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: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"
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: "It was good no complaints about the crew or flight"
Cons: "The snack they give is pretzels or two tiny cookies and the tv didn't work for most of the flight I know this isn't really something they should be criticized for but that's all I had to complain about"
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: "paying for plus was a nice bonus on this flight, given it was sold out."
Cons: "Delays in getting airborne. Also, the 30 minute wait for our bags in Calgary was ridiculous"
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 email@example.com"
Pros: "trip was fairly smooth, flight was on time. Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Trying to carry travel on luggage up the aisles is very awkward when the plane is already full or half full of people. seating should be done in a bit more order. back 5 rows, next 5 etc. Crew should have a better knowledge of the land masses flying over."
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"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
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"
Cons: "No crew to load the baggage or guide us out of the terminal. After a day of cancellations and delays for my one flight, my baggage was lost. I felt like notifying us about delays and cancellations could have been handled more efficiently. Also, the staff was not helpful when my baggage was lost"
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
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."
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: "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: "Due to a baggage check-in snafu, we were very late to arrive at our gate. But we made it! And the staff were still very kind to us even though we arrived so late and they didn't know why. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever been on, and the snack and beverage service was just fine - I loved that cookies were an option and not just pretzels. Overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "Very friendly, professional and entertaining crew."
Cons: "Delays Boarding: boarding from both doors: back door and front door, but no direction from the crew to anyone. Ended up with passengers trying to get in the front from the back and passengers trying to get to the back from the front. This created another extra 15 minutes delay when everyone were stuck in the middle...The rest of the passengers waited outside in Canadian winter cold. On a flight already late."
Pros: "I am mute and the staff did a good job of understanding that and accommodating the way I communicate. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight ever)"
Pros: "Staff on the ground and in the air were great - nice, polite and funny"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful with my baby who was a little fussy."
Pros: "inflight entertainment was good and friendly staff"
Cons: "lots or turbulence and uncomfortable landing"
Cons: "We flew from Toronto - Abbotsford with a stop in Edmonton. There was a 1 hour layover in Edmonton before the Edmonton - Abbotsford flight left. Unfortunately, the plane arrived in Edmonton 30 minutes late, and rather than wait 5 minutes for the passengers to disembark from the Toronto plane and board the Abbotsford plane, WestJet decided to leave all those passengers behind. There were no other flights available until the evening, and we were stuck for 8 hours at the Edmonton Airport before we were finally given a flight to Abbotsford. Never again will I book with WestJet."
Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"
Cons: "I downloaded the app but was disappointed that the aircraft had no Wifi. There were TV's on each seat back, but several weren't working, including mine. The flight attendant reset the satellite TV's on the whole aircraft, and mine began to work for about 15 mins. Then it stopped again. Very disappointing to be without wifi AND Tv. Esp since I read thru all my reading material on the way to Toronto."
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 had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."
Pros: "The snacks were good"
Cons: "They lost my checked sleeping bag which forced me to buy another one before my backpacking trip. They refused to refund me for it costing me an extra few hundred dollars to replace it. To include I paid an extra eighty dollars for my trip because apparently I requested window seats which I wasn't provided for my return flight home! Be prepared to lose your luggage and don't expect a refund!"
