Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."

Pros: "Overall everything"

Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."
Pros: "The staff with West Jet are extremely helpful and friendly. I wish the American carriers would take lessons from them."
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"

Pros: "It was fast, friendly and over all made me impressed."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"
Cons: "6 hours delay"

Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and flight was excellent"
Cons: "A better snack option would be appreciated"
Pros: "Gate crew were very good at keeping us apprised of the status of the inbound plane and our estimate departure time. The flight crew were all very helpful and engaging. Not easy on a packed flight where too many people brought too many carry-on bags."
Cons: "I am a true-blue Air Canada customer but their checked baggage fees has created a disaster when it comes to boarding flights and getting planes in the air on-time. Many people had too many carry-on bags or very large carry-on bags so the time it took to board was ridiculous. Better rules need to be enforced with carry on (not that I blame people for trying, considering the increase in checked baggage fees) so that flights can be boarded more quickly and planes can take off on time."
Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Cons: "Took an hour to de-ice. The snow was forecasted. I understand it's the airport operations, not airline, but there should be a better way."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, excellent foods"
Pros: "Everything went almost smoothly and so I have little to complain about."
Cons: "There was a snow storm in Toronto that caused me to lose about an hour. This is obviously to the fault of no one, but it was annoying nonetheless. It ended up causing me to miss my initial flight to Kelowna."
Pros: "The flights are fine, on time."
Pros: "the staff very helpful , respectful, didn't feel rush they had their attention on helping me .Very grateful Thank you all"
Cons: "the turbulance but theres nothing that can be done for that."
Cons: "It was good"

Cons: "Bad experience."
Cons: "Narrow seats in business, insufficient recline, no extra pillows"
Cons: "The connection"
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."

Pros: "Check-in was smooth Air Canada were helpful as am travel with special needs"
Cons: "Nothing for now."
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus after our flight was delayed and we had to go back home for a night... Live 45 minutes from the airport and had to have a friend drop us off and come back to get us. Friendly staff for the most part. Some seemed a little stressed out, but its understandable as the job is probably stressful. Especially before christmas."
Cons: "Slow boarding, crowded plane when boarding- rushed to get us on the flight."
Cons: "Another long delay with Westjet"
Pros: "Seating and on time"
Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The Edmonton lounge is not sufficient. Minimal food. It is supposed to be above and beyond, but not worth trying to get points for."
Pros: "The trip to Edmonton was very smooth and right on time. Everything was very good.....including the baby behind us. I will fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I didn't like the change in gate at Edmonton to Vancouver. No one told us until boarding time. Even tho there was ample time to get there since it was the next door gate, I was in a wheelchair and if it had been any further, it could've been a disaster. We arrived right on time. I'd go Air Canada again."
Pros: "Free business class"
Cons: "Food and no entrainment available"

Pros: "Flight was on time. The landing was smooth, not bumpy."

Cons: "Delayed 3 hours !"
Cons: "Long time to get service."

Cons: "They ran out of most food selections"
Cons: "Free snacks."
Pros: "Absolutly, they let me switch seat"
Cons: "No leg room,"
Cons: "The staff did not want to accept my ticket purchased through kayak, told me that should have bought a ticket directly through air transat, and they told me to buy a new ticket elsewhere if I wanted to travel on that day. So I had to buy a same day ticket with air canada for an additional $900 CAD, and my ticket bought through kayak was useless, making me waste the entire cost of the ticket purchased through kayak."
Cons: "To have known that you had to do security twice without leaving the boarding area."
Pros: "Crew amazing. Passengers great"
Cons: "Seats are way too small. Aisles way too tight. Recent acquisition by air Canada must improve passenger comfort."
Cons: "Newer aircraft"
Pros: "Exit row window seat with empty row beside me. Next to washroom. Got 2hours sleep. All I can ask for."
Cons: "Business class upgrade for free."
Pros: "Air Transat provide excellent service with affordable prices. I have arrived late to check-in desk due to unexpected traffic but Air Transat team was very supportive, even helped us to cross the customs in no-time until the gate of the plane without interrupting the flight time. Highly Recommended."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Seats were tiny"
Cons: "Checking site was down Boarding was delayed because of crew forgot to tag Cary-on luggage for passengers, we had to all go off the plane to identify our luggage’s No space on the airplane, didn’t get to sit beside my wife. Would not recommend Pay the extra to go with a reputable airline."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Couldn’t fit my carry on in their plane so I was forced to check it, plane was very cold, very little to no leg room"
Pros: "Nice flying, nice crew, nice jet"
Cons: "Luggage took an hour to get out... unacceptable"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane. All on time . Good experience."
Pros: "the crew was great,"
Cons: "The aircraft was crappy and old. The leg room was smaller than normal, timing delayed by hours, no comp given, still all refreshments needed paying for"
Pros: "It’s hard to write a review when flight was supposed to leave at 6:30 and didn’t until midnight, but due to weather. It was frustrating for all but staff and pilot kept us informed at all times so that was appreciated. There wasn’t much to do but to wait out the weather."
Cons: "For the weather to be better and to have left on time - but obviously that is out of everyone’s control."
Cons: "Flught was 90 mins late leaving becuse of equipment failure. Missed my meeting."
Cons: "It took almost an hour from landing for our luggage to make it to the belt. For a domestic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Smallest seats I've been in in a while. Very poor on board entertainment (one 10" screen for every 4 rows, damaged audio ports, annoying movie choices). Very limited cabin storage."
Pros: "It left fairly promptly. Service was efficient. The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed flight, my seat was bumped from an aisle to a window seat although I checked in online and secured the Seat 24hrs prior to departure. The excuse I was given by staff is that the person sitting next to me is a “big” person so it’s for my benefit. Well the row I had planned to sit in had two people with an empty seat in between. And they were not “big” as was said. my seat I was moved to had sick children behind my seat whom were coughing and kicking the back of my seat and the row was completely full. An aweful experience and to top it off, the planes entertainment program was broken so we were provided with no entertainment, video or audio."
Pros: "Great price! For the price, we didn't expect much, just travel and get there safe - NO FRILLS. We paid a little extra for legroom and are happy this was not an inflated price. Paying in advance for our bag and getting a small discount was also appreciated. "Get what you pay for" without feeling "nickled and dimed" is what we consider economical and fare treatment."
Cons: "Again "you get what you pay for" is considered. However if I was to be critical, the choice of movies was a little stressful and one sided. (Star Wars and The Avengers). I brought my own entertainment but I felt bad for the Older generation who may have preferred something a little more relaxing and less CGI explosions. Also the interior decor and hardware of the plane was seriously aged and worn, which could use for an upgrade soon."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane noise was loud"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged and it was not handled well at the airport and I have not heard back from the Airline"
Pros: "Convenient time ,food was ok and no delay."
Cons: "No plug ,no inflight entertainment ,uncomfortable sits and crew was not overly friendly"
Pros: "Staff - Friendly, polite, professional"
Cons: "Couldn't see TV screen Seat wouldn't recline Cramped and uncomfortable for such a long flight. When I arrived in Vancouver and picked up my luggage, the wheel and part of the suitcase were gone (broken off) . How do I make a claim for this? Thank you"
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Cons: "Delayed 2 h for waiting for a passenger. Service onboard is quite limited. No water served!! Food is quite basic."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No room. It was clastertphobic. The seat in front was so close you couldn’t move. The screen for the movie was small and far from the seat and everyone’s head was in the way. Difficult for short people like me to see anything. Not very clean. Not enough washrooms."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, boarding disorganized, very little legroom, only one beverage service for a 5 hr flight, no snacks (pretzels, peanuts etc)."
Pros: "On time,I could charge my mobile"
Cons: "The curser of the smart screen was hard to use"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable- cushioning badly needs replacing. Poor width of seat."
Cons: "3 hours late due to technical issue on the plane. Stuck in the airport for 3 hours. Crew was very apologetic. Wish more could have been done for us waiting in the dark."
Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
Cons: "the delay 9 hours"
Cons: "Antiquated electronics use procedures"
Pros: "I was crammed into the middle seat between two obese men. I could hardly move my legs or arms. They offered bistro but when I asked for a bistro item they said they had no more."
Cons: "Late boarding, no assigned seating, virtually no options for buying food on board (and the small sandwich that was given for free was not good), no entertainment system, and no outlets for charging electronics."
Cons: "Our flight from Barcelona was late and we had to rush across the airport to get the connection to Toronto. By the time we landed it was almost time for the Toronto flight to depart. No information was given to the passengers when we landed informing them that the Toronto flight was waiting for us. No information was given by the ground staff either, just told to drop your checked bag off and get to the gate and hope the flight was still there. Would have been a lot less stressful if someone had said "don't worry, the Toronto flight is waiting for you""
Pros: "Once I finally got boarding it was quick and staff were helpful"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable I have back problems and found it difficult to sit when I had to use my seat belt. Once again staff making faces at each other showing their impatience with customers. Staff slammed overhead lockers and sighed clearly showing how unimpressed they were."
Pros: "They gave us water when we had to wait an hour before take off. It was not their fault we were delayed. They did wait for the 30 of us who were delayed from Lyon and did not take off without us."
Cons: "They did not answer my call (s) for water to take a pill. They never offered anyone earphones. There were no services at all on this flight as the seat belt sign was on the whole time."
Pros: "Super friendly crew from my seat area, clean plane and kind service"
Cons: "Lack of films available on the plane that we're appealing to a variety of audiences."
Pros: "For a traveller since I was a kid, this is one of my worst experiences"
Cons: "The line for the registration was sooo long! The staff never smiles, if you ask a question they loook at you as you were crazy, they are just hurrying up so they can go sit and chat together The bathroom were disgusting, my bladder almost popped The place is app small, i only weight 105lbs and I was in discomfort The tv, reminds me of the 1990's when you have one big tv for everybody or TV's in the middle of the row"
Pros: "Friendly crew. A couple of very recent movies. Individual screen."
Cons: "Narrow space, especially for my legs, but also my arms. Too much selling of duty free. That woke me up when I finally slept."
Pros: "It was well heated because often airplanes are too cold, I get sick and also notice that some passenger start coughing, and also me after some hours. The personal was friendly and I knowticed that they tried to please everybody. Unfortunately there was a baby who cried most of the time and her mother simply was not able to calm her. I also travelled with two babies and small children every year long distances but mine always fell asleep and never cried. I know this is beyond your control"
Cons: "The food was not too good, I think I will order vegetarian the next time."
Pros: "Crew were courteous and professional."
Cons: "The seating was extremely cramped, food wasn't fit for consumption, and entertainment..not worth mentioning. These things have nothing to do with the crew, but is directly related to the management and their willingness to annoy and test the tolerance of their customers. Just reflects the tastelessness and cheapness of the airline. Will select other airline next time."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Lighting was terrible, movie selection was not up to date and the food was bad. It took over an hour to be served a microwaved vegetable sandwich"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay at 7:30AM?"
