Charles de Gaulle airport sent us to 3 different gates and then delayed the flight by two hours, only to move it back to the original gate
Cons: "They need to make more leg room in ALL planes"
Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Pros: "The flight was safe and efficient."
Cons: "The seats on the 787 Dreamliner proved to be uncomfortable AGAIN this trip. 2 years ago we flew the 787 overnight and the seats were the same. Hard cushions, tight seat pitch, and little room to move about."
Pros: "The croissants were great!"
Cons: "Working USB ports. On time departure."
Pros: "The ability to charge my cell phone via USB ports. Also the movies on long flights is really nice"
Cons: "Quicker way to get off plane"
Pros: "Very helpful flight crew."
Cons: "A little unexpectedly bumpy."
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Cons: "If my baggage arrived"
Pros: "Good access to charging, good food"
Cons: "More space:)"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We reserved exit row seats and when they changed the plane they gave our exit row seats to others."
Pros: "Empty seats direct into Indy."
Cons: "Rough landing."
Pros: "Having the whole center three seats to myself. The food and beverages were really good as well."
Cons: "Both flights were significantly late to depart. Also the WiFi on the transatlantic flight was out."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "A bit warm and the B777 blowers not in the easiest location to reach."
Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Cons: "It was too cold on the feet during the night. The blanket was not enough. The food lacked good vegetables. The asparagus was too tough. If you wanted to avoid sugar, you could not eat breakfast."
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Pros: "It is good to be able to go straight to Paris without connecting."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow."
Pros: "Food was okay. Everything else was great!"
Cons: "Did not serve the food we asked Limited choice of movies"
Pros: "The food was good The crew was fantastic, friendly and accommodating Flight was on time"
Cons: "I was near the bathroom.. stank a bit"
Pros: "Food and service was amazing."
Cons: "My luggage is lost."
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "The food and the service"
Cons: "Drab interior. This was a Jet Airways flight."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Good food. Great service"
Cons: "Small seats. Crowded."
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Cons: "No check in to Minsk from Paris"
Pros: "I love how attentive the crew was. Food and beverages we’re always available and I even had the chance to rest."
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable-very close quartered"
Pros: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Cons: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."
Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Seat was ok. Meal was ok. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Long wait at immigration in Paris (not Delta's fault)"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."
Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."
Cons: "I didn't like: While transition from Mumbai to Hyderabad, i was told to collect the luggage in Mumbai and check-in again which made so worried and confused."
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."
Pros: "I liked the croissants they gave us."
Cons: "it was a small, older plane, so it wasn't very comfy and had no entertainment options. it was a short trip though, so not a huge deal. we were also stuck on the runway for a long time before it was our turn to take off, which is never fun."
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Not having 2hr delays would be great
Cons: "There was loud, annoying static over the intercom off and on."
Pros: "Nice crew short flight."
Cons: "Not much flight was too short to say"
Cons: "We were delayed thirty minutes due to slow service. Zero entertainment and only a brownie for a snack"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, adequate legroom; clean aircraft, polite and professional crew."
Cons: "Super crowded gate -- but that's more the CDG problem than Norwegian's one."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I’d honestly pay more for childless flights"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."
Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient. Moved very well around sleeping passengers sprawled feet. The shortcomings of the flight had to do with being in a tail section of an economy class in a packed transoceanic flight."
Cons: "At the beginning of the long flight the cabin was chilled, which made me happy I had my hooded sweatshirt with me, but at the end it was hot and stuffy. There was no air regulation available from the seat, only light."
Cons: "Improving customer service during delay but overall good"
Pros: "Brand new very nice/comfortable planes. Great routes and flight departure/arrive times. Really great value."
Cons: "They’re a budget airline so they nickel and dime you for food and beverage. They are not a member of “sky team” so if they have a flight delay or cancellation they will not book you on another airline."
Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."
Pros: "entertainment was good"
Cons: "the flight attendants were mostly absent. The flight attendants on the other side of the aisle were much more attentive and nice"
Cons: "Few toilets for two sections and seats too close, if it is not uptight the seat in front of you. You can not enjoy and watch movies."
Pros: "Service was excellent, food was good, everyone was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Everything was OK."
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "Quick, efficient, relaxing."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Excellent take off and landing. Liked the extra legroom in coach for a bit more $$. Super friendly & professional crew. PA system was very difficult to understand."
Cons: "the food was a bit bland. Selection of movies very limited"
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I missed a hot moist towel to refresh my face before I got off of the plane after an 8-hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Pros: "The flights were on time, we made a 1 hr 5 min connection with no fluster. Dinner was one of the best airplane meals, breakfast a little less so"
Cons: "You cancelled. Cost me lost lodging, missed connecting flights and a day of my trip."
Cons: "Beware. Frankfort to Paris A321 Business class is coach with an empty middle seat. Uncomfortable even for a short flight. Very disappointing following excellentvbusiness class on first leg of trip Orlando-Frankfort"
Pros: "Enough space for my legs, cabin crew okay"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew greeted every passenger with a smile on entry and exit! So nice. Delicious, large cookie for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was poor. Did not board back of aircraft first like Lufthansa does on other flights. Felt sardined almost because of a full flight"
Pros: "Although clearly an older plane, it was clean. Gate personnel re-assigned me to a seat in a row with no-one in it."
Cons: "The gate of departure moved twice before departure. The last change was to a completely different building. Apparently the equipment was changed and I did not learn that I would need a seat re-assignment until I scanned my boarding pass during boarding. (However, the gate agent was quick to accommodate)."
Pros: "It was quick and smooth. Snack provided. Baggage arrived quickly."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Pilot told us we would arrive on time anyway, but we were very late and our luggage did not make the connecting flight."
Pros: "Title says it all Short flight"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment part: movies are good, crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "I didnt like the boarding process bacause it wasnt in order, also airplane crew started feeding passangers in 3 hours!!! after we took off. I started thinking that it is not included in my ticket!"
Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I don't understand why there isn't an arrival scan and how airlines don't take more responsibility for bags"
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"
Pros: "Very accomdating crew"
Pros: "I really appreciated the hostesses bringing around glasses of juice or water especially during the night . The selection of movies to watch was excellent. I liked a lot that the restroom was on a different floor and there was plenty of space outside. Thank you."
Cons: "The egg omelette for breakfast was not really tasty. The steward collected the earphones before we landed, a bit too early. I could have watched my movie 10 minutes longer."
Cons: "thet lost my bag. two days later still not reunited. pasta dinner was horribly pasty"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and pleasant crew"
Cons: "It was a short flight so no food was given out."
Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"
Pros: "The wide selection of content to watch, food was good."
Cons: "45 minute flight delay due to a discrepancy with the engine."
Cons: "From the boarding to the landing this crew could not have been more rude. Flashlights in the eye when trying to sleep, rude comments, rude attitude. They are clearly not here to make our flight easier."
Really different experience sitting in business! Comfortable and great service.
Pros: "when you enter Canada and then travel through YVR for another flight it is a total waste. Not the fault of the airline but the way they do things with security"
Cons: "Flight experience was the way air travel use to be."
Cons: "i would love to seat beside passenger who doesn’t snore bery loud."
Pros: "Fast efficient process through security. Well labeled and helpful airport staff. Plane wasn’t very full. Had a row to myself which was great. Entertainment available on smartphone, iPad or lap top."
Cons: "Really fast connection. 20 minutes from landing from LAX to clear customs and find connection before boarding call. Not much menu options for purchase and too quick a connection to buy anything. Luckily I travel with snacks."
Pros: "Casual attitude."
Cons: "better food option than a few dusty pretzels and a thimble of water."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew, plenty of leg room as well."
Pros: "Crew was nice.seats and storage better"
Cons: "Food choices too small, nothing hot, way to expensive"
Cons: "Can't expect anything from seat sale flight."
Pros: "It was the last leg of my journey back home."
Cons: "Not much more could be done on such a short flight."
Cons: "very poor customer service boarding and in flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The night skyline from above as you fly into LAX is simply awe inspiring with the miles and miles of lights everywhere you look. Quick flight and no hassles."
Cons: "The 3 rows of clubs seats ahead me were catered to quite well, but maybe a current dividing that and economy is necessary so you don’t feel so 2nd class."
Pros: "The flight didn’t get cancelled. We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because it came from Toronto and it needed to be cleaned."
Pros: "The legroom in economy was good. The staff were very pleasant and they even tried to comfort/distract a crying toddler."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours which meant that it didn't arrive in Toronto until 2:40am, this made it difficult for being picked up. I wasn't aware that this was a basic ticket (I bought it through 3rd party website) which meant that I couldn't prebook my seat. After checkin online and paying for the seat it also meant that the seat couldn't be changed even though there were several available seats. There were no entertainment centres at each seat which was also a real surprise. I didn't have the Westjet app therefore I couldn't have access to the movies as I didn't want to have to pay for internet."
Pros: "On time, free coffee, free pretzels"
Cons: "Going home."
Cons: "Super Cold airplane and it’s not the only west Ket that was freezing. the crew kept skipping my row for drinks for some reason. the landing was rough."
Pros: "Crew very kind and smily. Very punctual."
Cons: "Prices ridiculous, one coors light 7dollars and with 7 dollars you buy 12 coors light in Mexico!!!. Food really bad and prices worse. No entertainment."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time, friendly Westjet crew as always."
Cons: "Tiny TV screens, no real food, seat cushion was so compacted it was uncomfortable."
Pros: "We took off on time and landed a little early. Crew were very nice. I couldn’t judge the entertainment as I didn’t have iPad with me to connect to the wi-fi and watch movie. Plenty of snacks. Worth the cost of the flight."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited to what was being broadcast on regular cable channels. No movies or on demand content were available. Assigned seats were different than what was reserved during booking."
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"
Pros: "The crew were very amiable and one member in particular was quite funny during the seat belt demonstration. First one I've paid attention to the entire time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold and seats were quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Pros: "WestJet’s checkin online system is very quick, which save a lot of time. It’s so much better than air Canada in any aspects"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in the plane"
Cons: "They used the rough air condition story to hip us out of full service, The conditions were fine . I bought the plus and did that because of a food option. They ripped me off Thanks Bryan ELLIOTT Previous flyer Lost my trust"
Pros: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."
Pros: "It was a quiet flight. Quick loading. Got to sit with my friends."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Less leg space, price of bags to high, too many people bring on over-sized carry on taking up all the overhead bins. No entertainment options for flight"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in the plane for 4 hours when 20 minutes into the delay the flight attendants knew they weren't going to be able to fly with us, and instead of cancelling the flight 20 minutes into the delay we sat on the plane for 4 hours while the crew knew we were not going to take off. There were a handful of infants and children (my 10 month old nephew included) and for the crew to keep the passengers on the plane for 4 hours when they knew the flight was going to be cancelled is unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew ok."
Cons: "Was told need to fix my ticket from Bangkok. So after waiting over an hour to get ticket fixed, found out didn't need to. Then a rush through security . Lucky Westjet flight delayed (usual) And made flight by running to gate. Then get to sit on plane for an hour. AGAIN. Two flights on Westjet and two delayed and two sat in the plane an hour. First time missed my connecting to Hong Kong and Bangkok. I know nothing perfect, but this seems to be the norm. Next time will try to find someone else to fly with."
Pros: "No much.."
Cons: "To start.. due to your company combining two out going Toronto flights in Vancouver and then being late off the ground in Vancouver because if that we missed our connecting flight in Toronto to Ottawa. This in turn made us miss a very important appointment in Ottawa. I’m sure the company loves that they saved money by combining those flights however you flunked the test with me. All the corporate could care less about me missing my flight after they look at the bottom line but I will be taking my $1600 plus money elsewhere in the future because of the aggravation, frustration and I don’t care attitude that your company has provided me. I’ll I want to do is get back to Vancouver in my return flight hopefully put most likely on time with my two girls and forget that your company does exists. Thanks for the headaches and goodbye.."
Pros: "crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Westjetconnect (the plane's Wi-Fi) was down, so there was no means for entertainment on the plane."
Pros: "Hannah was a lovely accommodating woman thourghly enjoyed her service, i slept the whole way to Prince George. Crew was welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "Didnt know i bought west jet plus seats. Enjoyed my service though. May think of buying plus again some time soon on one of my up comming trips"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to start at 10:20, but was delayed for at least 30 with no updates. In fact, they were still showing the flight as leaving on time up until the last second, which is not ok. Gotta keep the passengers updated folks!"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "I traveled from Vancouver to Edmonton today on WS 320 and one of my luggage was delayed. I had to wait through many phone call queues to get in contact with an agent and none of them were very useful. I was informed that my baggage would arrive in Edmonton at 5pm and be contacted to arrange delivery options but I had not heard anything from them and it is already past 8pm. I had to stay at home to wait for the phone call which resulted me in canceling my evening plans. The luggage contains frozen home made goods and various food items I brought back from my recent trip to Taiwan. With the food not being in a freezer for over 12 hours at this point they've likely all gone bad. I am extremely displeased with the bagging service especially when I had PAID to get my bags checked. I was told that packing food in checked bags comes with a risk and is a game but everything in life is a risk and I find that excuse from an agent very unacceptable. I am also very upset that WestJet does not offer compensation for food damages because the foods in my luggage are definitely worth over $200 and some are not obtainable in Canada."
Pros: "Flight was delayed hours. Met the most amazing man on the flight ahead of me to Calgary. He waited at the airport for my flight to land. Sometimes delays are just meant to be. Lots of commuting travel in our future..."
Pros: "Honestly, I slept on my flight so I miss all the perks. I’d assume everything was fine since they let me sleep. They also let me board early since my foot was in a cast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but not by much."
Cons: "I dislike that westjet tried to get me to pay for my seats when I initially bought the ticket, only to discover later that the seats are free if I choose them at check in. I didn’t pay the seat charge but there is a breach of trust in them trying to con me that makes me not want to fly with them again."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "As always, the staff and crew were great. Left on time, arrived on time they go their best to deal with the shortcomings of the company."
Cons: "The entertainment system (or lack thereof...) not nearly enough iPads to rent and it never works on laptops."
Pros: "Staff were so friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The breezy, confident preflight announcements of the crew, including (from the Captain) "We are flying into Kelowna today, where the weather is always awesome even though it is a bit overcast and 5 degrees C..." and from the flight attendant on landing, "We have arrived in Kelowna. If you live here--Lucky You! You are almost home! And if you don't live here, welcome to the Okanagan! We hope you enjoy your stay." I was only disappointed that the sentence including 'lucky you' was not included in the French translation. C'est d'hommage..."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. There was no delay in any areas."
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Pros: "Crew were really nice and good entertainment."
Cons: "Paying for food and alcohol was a bit of a downer."
Pros: "I had never heard of WestJet and only booked the flight because it was the least expensive ticket I could find. I was shocked when I was given my boarding pass because I got a first class seat. A comfortable seat is such a blessing on an overnight flight because you can sleep fairly comfortably. Also, the food and especially the wine were excellent. The flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend WestJet to anyone."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "I can't think of a thing"
Cons: "Flight was late due to earlier mechanical error. These things happen but still annoying when they do. Crew didn’t seem too bothered."
Pros: "Everything about this booking was a disaster. Not the least of which is that my bags are still on London and are total travel time will end up being about 24 hours returning."
Cons: "Forced to board a bus and sit in an empty terminal. Paid for priority boarding but wasn't called for it. Pretty disorganized. Good flight but gate crew needs work."
Pros: "Seats were better than the international leg."
Cons: "Everything. Offer at least a drink - all drinks were a charge. Staff was rude. Also they lost our luggage."
Pros: "Quick boarding, kind crew"
Cons: "All food and drinks for a cost. I had to run to make it to my gate which was quite a distance and a shuttle ride away."
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Pros: "All good, excellent crew."
Cons: "After awhile Seats were a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "fantastic customer service"
Cons: "wouldve loved to have been left breakfast while i slept"
Pros: "very friendly staff great flight with nice tech made trip fly by"
Pros: "The service. Excellent"
Cons: "Pay for the food. LOL."
Pros: "Average flight to get you where you want to go. air hostess was helpful."
Cons: "Forgot my luggage in Toronto. This is the second time with aer Lingus in the past 8 month. Had to pay for my seat and baggage on top of ticket price, was unaware."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The confort of thé seats. Way too tight for a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "No free food or drink service."
Cons: "The chairs are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "No complimentary free alcoholic drink with your meal on the Aer Lingus Flight."
Cons: "I was fine with a 5 hour delay I was fine with my bags not being on the same flight as me I am not fine with finally receiving my bags 24 hours later soaking wet. Everything it dripping. I still have nothing to change into now and there was no compensation offered whatsoever. Never flying with this airline again."
Cons: "Missed the flight."
Pros: "Timeliness of flight and service on board."
Cons: "We upgraded 7 travelers for priority boarding. However as we got through check in, 2 of us were told we had to check our carry on. Mind you our carry on was the same size (exact same suitcase) as 2 others in our party who did not have to check in their bags? "Priority Boarding is now only €4.99. Be the first on board to store your cabin bag and relax in your seat before take-off." I believe I am entitled to a refund based on the info on above taken directly from the Aer Lingus website."
Cons: "Being charged $100 each way for checked baggage, no where on my itenerary did it mention that"
Pros: "I flew overnight from Toronto, Canada to Dublin and had a relatively pleasant experience. The food and drink trolleys came by quite quickly and frequently, and the food exceeded my expectations. The crew was friendly, for the most part. Boarding certainly could've been smoother... But overall, I'd fly Aer Lingus again for an overseas trip."
Cons: "Free-for-all boarding was less than ideal. Boarding by seat rows as on Boston to Dublin flight would have been better."
Pros: "Great seats plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The food... Yikes"
Cons: "Missing connecting flight"
Cons: "No free alcohol on an international flight?!?!"
Cons: "they charged me 100 dollars to check a bag - nothing at all about this during my purchase. i am so mad at these guys."
Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Dublin airport is cold. Security between plane in correspondance area to crowded and unnecessary."
Cons: "The good part was that I paid for what i received. So anyway why do I complain."
Cons: "Short flight so N/A on food and entertainment. Crew were much nicer and friendly than our first leg of the trip."
Cons: "It was like squeezing everyone into a cattle truck and airport crew double book seats of a few passengers on a full flight so there was confusion on board"
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment selections are extremely limited and poor. Food is mediocre and not even comparable to other international Airlines business class standards"
Pros: "the timeliness of the airline in leaving and arriving at the ports, providing meals for the passengers,"
Cons: "breakfast was not given to some of us as the air hostesses said that they ran out of food"
Pros: "On time delivery"
Cons: "How many seats can you cram in to an airline cabin? So tightly packed it indicates a base level of disregard by the company for their customers. And nothing offered that didn't cost (no coffee, water...)"
Pros: "Fast and efficient crew"
Cons: "A going-through-the-paces flight and incredibly expensive beer and wine."
Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."
Cons: "I can't actually make a comment on the food since u have to pay for it and I didn't want to. Nothing appealed enough to pay for it. Entertainment wise, there was no entertainment so I have it one star"
Cons: "Too cold"
Cons: "Not even free water"
Pros: "Nothing. I flew with West Jet. Their review shall be posted on their forum"
Cons: "The abrupt cancellation"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing a week after my flight arrived and no news about it. I can't get in touch with anyone from the airline or who can help me. Pretty terrible experience."
Cons: "We arrived at Dublin airport two hours before our flight--as instructed--and had to enter an enormous line. Finally, we were instructed to leave the line after almost an hour and a half and were then informed that our tickets had been sold to someone else (we were bumped!). Aer Lingus tried to "normalize" this by explaining that they always "overbook" by 10%. How irresponsible! Instead of arriving in Paris at 4:30 PM (a direct flight) we had to take a flight to London and then to Paris and arrived at 11 PM exhausted (the bus service to Paris had closed down and we had to take a taxi). We will never fly Aer Lingus again. Aer Lingus created the long line to create this very situation!"
Pros: "check in process was easy"
Cons: "Our 2 carry-on bags were moved to checked in just before we got in. We were told that it was because it was a full flight. So what do I see in the overhead bins? 2 carry ons with "crew" tags. What bulls**t. This was a very good airline 20 years ago. Not anymore"
Pros: "The flight was so short that the food and entertainment part of this survey are. It applicable. They did serve food for purchase though and they had some good choices"
Pros: "From the moment I arrived I felt very taken care of. Plenty of seating in lounge, with many of them facing runway. People were friendly and accommodating. Food was average. On aircraft, the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "------- we were very cold on the plane . ."
Pros: "Have traveled many long haul flights with various airlines in past 6 months. The Aer Lingus food was significantly better than the others. Very tasty."
Cons: "Not enough seating at gate in Dublin and the space needs updating. A complimentary beer or wine with the meals, as provided by other carriers, would be nice."
Pros: "What do you say about that loses you luggage both directions. It isn't reliable so that's it for me with aer Linus."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was too close! My knees touched for 7 hours. Plus, computer and seat support take up foot space. Very very uncomfortable for a moderately tall person (6'2")"
Cons: "I remember Aer Lingus being a quality airline that treated passengers well. Now charging for tea and water, and exorbitant fees for bags? Felt like Ryanair. If I want to feel like bottom of the barrel I'll just take them next time!"
It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better.
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Pros: "Food was good and again, staff were friendly and professional. Flight was on time and efficient dis-embark mentioned."
Cons: "Slight issue with headphone connection, was not the only passenger."
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Cons: "Plane left 45 minutes late. No reason given either when waiting or after late boarding. I didn't eat as I tried to sleep byt narrow seats meant being woken constantly by fidgety neighbour. Fortunately the plane made up most of the lost time and I got my next Air France flight. This one was 50 minutes late departing."
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Pilots made up some of departure delay time in the air between NCE & CDG."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process and minimal info or announcements regarding delay. Failure to respect SkyPriority status at boarding were disappointing. (Staff allowed it to be a bit pushy and chaotic and people were able to force their way in line, ahead of those who had been waiting in line.) Seats were okay but no recline and underseat storage was small. (Backpack wouldn't fit underseat and had to be stored in overhead.) Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Pros: "I didn’t actually liked the entertainment"
Cons: "I just didn’t enjoy the entrainment."
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "My seat was changed without my permission. Very unprofessional staff at Mumbai airport"
Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Pros: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"
Cons: "Some toilet facilities out of order and some slow service"
Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Pros: "Boarding and punctuality."
Cons: "Lagos boarding with rather annoying wait due to repeat hand check. Perhaps added security carried far."
Cons: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "Staff was responsive, effective and pleasant; Nice selection of digestifs too. Food was decent and, in airline level, even good."
Cons: "The audio system is outdated with unreliable touch-screen that makes it frustrating to navigate."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "Good seat near the front."
Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."
Pros: "The flight was good overall. Friendly crew good attention."
Cons: "There was a delay due to technical dificulties in previous flight. This caused a delay in take off and no AC while waiting in the plane for 40 minutes."
Cons: "Wheel chairs for my ill and aged parents was not provided"
Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Very small plane."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long check in wait in Dubai. Food was shocking - inedible!"
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Cons: "Boarding more than 15 minutes late. Departure on time, though"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment wad quite nice, even though the screens were old."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was tasteless. I expected way more."
Pros: "Due to delay in flight of amost 2 hrs, the in flight staff was kind enough to offer drinks and snacks while the passengers were waiting in the plane."
Cons: "Terrible communication by the staff on the cause of delay. Also once we landed in Paris, the ground staff was not aware whether all the luggage has landed or not."
Cons: "We waited quite a while to check in our luggage at the Birmingham airport. Staff showed up at the counter only 2 hrs before the flight."
