Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("
Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"

Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."

Cons: "I didn't like how my flight was delayed for 3 hours because of rain that wasn't in the area of where I was or going. FOR BOTH OF MY FLIGHTS! I didn't like how I was offered a $50 voucher for being diverted to Hamilton after all that time, which I was originally told that was good for a year and then found out it is only good for 6 months and non-transferable.

Cons: "The boarding process was unorganized. Once your ready to board you should call out seat numbers starting from the back of the plane to the front and if someone tries to board before their seat has been called they should have to wait.

I don’t think I will travel WestJet ever again."
Cons: "Everyrhing was great"
Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."
Cons: "3 hours early for international flight, which was then delayed 3 hours. Then another hour at LaGuardia waiting for 2 $40 taxis to take 5 of us downtown. Ugh.

LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"

Pros: "The boarding was good and effective, Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew did not pay attention to my requests for beverages and forgot to bring me what I have asked."
Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
