Departure delay on a late night flight. Made us even later. Tired but got home.

Westjet forced me to put my carry-on baggage in check-in probably because I was assigned seat 23A (the last row seat), which had no cabin space, which is unfair. I wanted to carry on my luggage so that I don't have to wait at the airport for my luggage. Also, because there was no cabin space, I was forced to keep my laptop bag under the seat, which I didn't want to as I was carrying 2 laptops and charger. The airline should basically tell people that if you are assigned a last row seat, then you are not allowed a cabin baggage or a personal item.

We were late boarding, but it all worked out. So, no problem.

Very efficient crew. Plane was newer and clean. Would have liked gluten free snack options.

Everything was good except check in was not. I expect long lines but only 2 people at counter, sign for people with passes and without but only 1 line. Took well over a hour to check in.Flight and staff on plane were awesome.

It was good but not comfortable seat with the long legged persons.

No problems here. WestJet does a good job, even on their short haul flights

I didn't like anything, Westjet cancelled the flight the morning we were to leave.

Flight was cancelled, no follow up on what to do, crew was grumpy and not friendly. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

I will definitely book another west jet flight again. In fact, I just booked more flights with WestJet and I booked some for my friends.

Nanaimo to Vancouver was fine but flight from Vancouver to SFO was not so hood. Major problem besides 7 hours of weather delay was the fact they let 4 very drunk men on the plane into first class. They were awful! They should never have been allowed on.

For such a series of long flights the crew was attentive and professional. I would fly Air Canada anytime I get the opportunity.

This website (despite selling a Canadian flight to a Canadian resident, me) didn't indicate the prices were in $USD.

I used to fly aeromexico yvr to sjo c.rica. they charged me extra $450 can when they messed up my flight as stuck in mex city . Their plane broke down 5 hrs delaying flights . I decided next time ,as this time air Canada to c.rica vacation . I rate my trip as excellent overall. I only wish there was an option to pay for meals on booking the trip. 4 or 5 hours long time no food only drinks free. Therefore please give option for a better meal like I'm used to . I am going to flair Canada 100% next trip . Thanks geaciss David Allan of Langley bc . .

We cancelled our flight a week ago. Kayak should know that before spamming guests asking how their trip went. Do better.

I got my dates wrong but becuase I bought through Kayak there was nothing Air Canada would do and there was nobody to talk to / contact / or even email to get a refund even with my dates being off by more than a month.

Not hold up plane for one passenger who didn't get there on time so the rest of a full flight has to be concerned about connecting flight, me, and run to catch flight 😑

Removed from my chosen seat 8weight distribution I in 8D moved to 17D A biger ma assigned my origanalt I s

Stop selling airphones. Give them for free. NO snacks . That's ridiculous for 4 hour journey.

Coldest flight I’ve ever been on. The crew noticed as well but weren’t able to fix the situation. It was like camping in late fall when you sleep with a toque and sleeping bag but you still freeze your nose off!

Flight was 3 hrs late and another 2 hrs wait for baggage to arrive on carousel and a $7.00 food voucher that arrived as we were boarding our flight.

Seat rows so close together no one dares to put their seats back. Knees pressed against the seat in front, had to find a position putting my legs under the seat in front. But for 6 hours keeping that one position was ridiculous. All savings on the purchase price are taken back through charge backs for luggage $200 each way, Seat selection $44 per seat or you are seated by a computer randomly. Wife sat 5 rows away. Would avoid Flair in the future

The flight was safe (priority). Everything else is low-cost: too hard, delays, mediocre boarding, cost for carry-on and checked luggage.

Flair flight was 4 hours late due to not having a crew and the plane was filthy. Just water service Terrible experience flight 1513

Flair did not notify you when they changed gate number!

Can't be happy with a 5 hour delay. Only given $10 voucher for food and still EVERYTHING was an upcharge during the flight.

TThe first time I have ever flown with flare and both ways sucked

There was no entertainment There was no food or beverage service , not even a glass of water The plane door could not be opened upon arrival

I try to buy water the cabin crews told me I had to wait for them to come around with the trolley I waited over 2 hours !!!!! Literally 2 hours I was so thirsty .

Lots of leg room in the front rows. Wish water was free.
