Connection to Toronto was terrible. Needed an escort to the connecting flight. Baggage-never made it to connecting flight. We barely made the connection to Toronto. Never going WestJet again:(
Coffee left a lot to be desired
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Hello, I just needed to voice my dissatisfaction with this fight. I’m not sure if every Westjet flight I was lucky and had amazing crew members or if the staff on this flight was having a bad flight. Our flight was delayed by 75min. The flight crew did not attend to any requests from the customers for the 75min we were on the tarmac. I asked for headphones and the crew member look agitated I asked made a remark about how nobody buys them so she didn’t know how much they are. She said she would come back with the price, and did not. I had to wait for the beverage cart and then order them again. Then I asked for an additional can of ginger ale. The gentleman said he’ll need to come back (as he was cleaning the garbage). He never came back. I had to hit the assistance button again and got the original woman. Once again agitated and when I asked she said to wait for the beverage cart again. After another 10-15min they started the beverage service again. On previous flights there were delays, shorter like 30min westjet crew members gave free headphones. And those are the kind of experiences I’ve come to expect from westjet. Not the free aspect but flight crew that care about the customers. The entire crew on this flight was agitated and annoyed from boarding and it definitely showed. Small things like even a smile or even sorry everyone, would’ve gone a long way. But when the crew doesn’t care the flight gets 10x longer, and when the flight is already delayed by 25% of the flight duration it comes to a point where you’re counting down the seconds to get out. The delay was unfortunate and out of the control of the company and crew but that doesn’t mean the crew couldn’t still make it into a memorable experience for the guests."
Cons: "Better, healthier food choices would be nice."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Seats where uncomfortable. They didn't have the adjustable padded headrest even though we did coming to Winnipeg. You can no longer change your seat selection 24 hrs before you're flight without a fee. There was also no entertainment coming from Winnipeg even though there was entertainment going to Winnipeg."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable Nice to have direct flight"
Cons: "No interaction from the cockpit about areas we were flying through. No duty free. Felt like a local flight and not a transatlantic flight....crew did not come around often enough to provide water, etc"
Cons: "i would love to seat beside passenger who doesn’t snore bery loud."
Pros: "So much leg room!"
Cons: "The entertainment option doesn’t work on laptops"
Cons: "Communication from you all. I missed my flight because of the terrible instructions and communication"
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Pros: "They were very helpful and polite."
Cons: "Times have changed and they offer very little such as entertainment food options. but it was short trip and people need to adjust."
Pros: "The staff are what made the flight great."
Pros: "Newest 787 plane in the fleet. Really comfortable seats and terrific in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "flight attendants were very good & compassionate for a blind passenger."
Cons: "Check-in crew on the ground needs an attitude adjustment. They were more interested in high 5ing one another than opening up to take care of waiting customers. the service culture was lacking."
Cons: "For customers without hand held devices, there are no options for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were not comfortable."
Cons: "Slightly wider seats."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding, on-time flight, friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."
Pros: "Very low ticket prices, everything went smoothly (no delays), lots of leg room!"
Pros: "On time, free coffee, free pretzels"
Cons: "Going home."
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: "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: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Cons: "Checking in at Airport very slow, I had a terrible experience even thought I spoke to them several times at checking counter. And missed my ride home as a consecuencia of arriving late."
Pros: "The over all star rating should have five stars. I mistakenly pressed something and it went to one And I could not figure out how to get it back to five. Everything was on time which I so appreciated."
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Cons: "Due to the fact that my trip to was not clearly indicated as non stop it is the first time in thirty years of regular travel that I did not have a direct flight to Calgary. Then I was not able to change my flight at the airport even though there was room available on a direct Westjet flight leaving as close to the same time. But the worst part as after landing we waited for a very long time for the plane to pull up to a gate (unnecessarily burning fuel and poluting the environment). And finally we waited another very long time for the doors of the plane to be opened for disembarkation. More than 3/4 of an hour waiting on the ground after a one hour flight very late in the evening. As a result I hat to take a cab home from the airport. Now I will try my best to not fly Westjet."
Pros: "Kind, courteous and helpful staff"
Cons: "It was good overall"
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: "The flight staff were very friendly and helpful upon boarding. Once landed even the pilot was standing in view and say good bye. Thanks again!"
Cons: "Calgary airport we thought was terrible, half hour walks between gates We had to go through security again between flights. Worst airport in the country"
Pros: "West Jet just runs a relaxed yet professional airline. They are just more laid back and accommodating. You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger. I really can’t complain....I had an entire row to myself....the best you can hope for, when riding on a plain for hours that’s like winning the lottery!"
Cons: "No complaints for sure"
Pros: "I like West Jet over all and it is my preferred airline, as it flies direct between most cities I need to visit. The price is decent and the majority of time the in flight staff are reasonable. I had another flight recently where they were excellent."
Cons: "The flight attendants were a little dour. Whether due to the time of flight or that they were leaving Orlando, I don't know, but I was expecting a little more cheer or at least positivity from them. Also the flight was "running low" on drinks and so I they only came through the cabin once to offer soft drinks, which I needed as I had still to catch a red eye and function during my layover. I wasn't pleased with them. Lastly the West Jet connect app worked just fine for my ipad but despite advertising my wife was unable to get it to work on her computer (mac) despite multiple attempts. If TVs are no longer going to be standard on planes someone needs to be present to help with I.T. when the system isn't working as advertised."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment and food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
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"
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: "I liked the fact that all the movies food and beverages were included in my Plus seat."
Cons: "This was my first time booking a PLUS seat and never realized that row 2A seat sucks. Its a bulkead row seat that is by the window. This seat was worse to sit in than any other seat on the plane. This seat is located were the plane starts to curve in toward the front of the plane reducing the seat width, I have a 33" waist and it was tight. The arm wrests in this row don't come up as they stow your table, as well the leg room is only as good as a regular seat because of the bulkhead location. So FYI do not book this seat on a long flight."
Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers at both the Mazatlan end and Calgary were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"
Pros: "There was one nice, friendly flight attendant. Nice to have a variety of beverages and pretzels offered (I feel I don't expect this anymore from domestic flights-- usually just expecting the coffee or water option)."
Cons: "The seats were up there with the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced--mostly due to the lack of ability to recline. I feel a four hour flight is sufficiently long enough to provide people some space to relax. We were delayed for whatever reason, lack of communication from staff to the passengers that were boarded really quite early (perhaps too early). One of the staff, while nice enough, was being a bit snarky to people as they were trying to, what I thought was helpfully, give them their garbage."
Pros: "They looked after us very well there was voter fraud hotel and meals"
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: "Selection of entertainment good."
Cons: "Last minute seat changes at loading time. Seats must have been randomly selected because couples previously seated together and on the same locator number were now separated. Many of the couples and family members were left to work with other travellers who were facing the same situation. Families with children?"
Pros: "I like that there is a route from northern Vancouver Island to northern Alberta."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked.................................."
Pros: "The staff were friendly as they had to deal with many annoyed customers. I thought the staff handled the constant delays and cancellations well."
Cons: "My flight to Calgary never happened. In fact due to weather conditions, many, many flights were delayed, some cancelled. No more flights to Penticton, so I had to take a flight to Kelowna after 6:00pm or fly the next day. I met a couple to share a ride to Penticton once I reached Kelowna. My luggage was lost in Calgary and so I went on to Penticton, to Osoyoos. The next day, West Jet delivered my suitcase to me. I appreciate the voucher I was given to buy a few things and the promptness of my luggage. We live in Canada, the weather in the winter can be quite an annoyance and so it was last week."
Pros: "- Flight was on time - Friendly crew"
Cons: "- My flight was from Montreal to Seattle with a connection in Calgary but the agent at the check in in Montreal was unable to confirm whether my luggage would be transferred directly to Seattle or if I had to collect it in Calgary and check in again. The crew should know or be able to verify the information in their database or somewhere at the departure not only when I arrive in Calgary! It adds a stress to the customer not knowing. - Flight of 4.30 hours and no free meals. - Impossible to use my hear phones in the plane so I couldn't hear the TV channels. I was also expecting movies and series like in Delta."
Pros: "The service was fantastic. It always is. I always use west jet and have never had any issues. Friendly staff very helpful. I will continue to use west jet. My parents live in Calgary and I travel a lot for work so you will see me again."
Pros: "WestJet was fine."
Cons: "If you are going to code share, maybe work out the kinks in the system that should link the itinerary to the partner airline."
Cons: "Counter checking was not available when I got to airport, and I needed to wait to hand over luggage. Counter crew did not know if I could take an umbrella through security, so I sent it through with luggage and it arrived mangled. I would think crew should know about implications of taking an umbrella."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."
Pros: "Everything was clean and new feeling"
Cons: "Food on offer was uninspiring."
Cons: "Personal monitors. Free food."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seats were comfortable, no complaints about the flight."
Cons: "We got to the gate and I had to use the bathroom, we waited for the jet bridge to be place but there was a malfunction. I had to get up despite the plane not parked at the gate."
Pros: "the crew was amazing and the seats were awesome"
Cons: "on this trip nothing"
Cons: "Normal los azafato tienen que estar más pendiente ala tripulación que anda con nenes chiquitos los papas se se duermen y los salvajitos se creen que están en un campamento de verano.y quieren romper el avión más pendiente a eso"
Pros: "Super comfortable"
Pros: "Not expecting high end services but not even mediocre service was done."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hrs, unorganized, seats uncomfortable, over crowded. Almost missed my layover flight."
Cons: "It was OK, no big issues or concerns."
Pros: "Old aircraft. Ucomfortable seat."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Great service and on time flight. Got a good comfortable seat with nice leg room."
Cons: "Flight delayed because the crew arrived late the night before. This created a chain of events that got me to Newark 7 hrs later than scheduled."
Pros: "SJU counter crew, in flight crew and flight was SUPER on time!!!"
Cons: "Nothing wrong."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendant had some attitude as if they were not enjoying their work."
Pros: "New onboard entertainment"
Pros: "The crew are always excellent."
Cons: "The comfort is horrible. Airline companies keep shrinking the seats and charging more. Also they keep serving less food. And flight changes."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and attentive"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and was too late to make connection. Had to rebook and now getting home much later than anticipated"
Cons: "My screen was not responsive most of the time"
Pros: "Í like al the fligth ."
Pros: "Arrived 30 minutes early"
Cons: "We had to wait 40 minutes in the runway before parking at the gate."
Pros: "I like it was fast and smooth"
Cons: "Not too much space in the plane"
Pros: "That I arrived at my destination"
Pros: "We were on time. Traveled safely. Uneventful."
Cons: "Comfort is in the past... seats are uncomfortable. No space. we are always crammed in like sardines. Seats were in poor condition and did not appear clean. Video equipment at my seat did not work. Did not seem to have enough crew. . . took forever to get the limited service - - crew seemed complacent - no enjoyment in their jobs - doing what they always do. Having enjoyed five years with Delta - I enjoyed my job and the people. No one seems to like their job now. Shame. Takes even more fun out of flying these days. It's a job - more people - more coffee - more sodas.... Don't LIKE it. . . give someone else the chance to fill that position. Flying Should be Fun. . . it's special!! every time."
Pros: "Ok time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work in all stops"
Pros: "He crew. They were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The delay and the plane was old"
Pros: "Large plane, and helpful crew."
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight attendant was arrogant. This is her job... just for $$$"
Pros: "The Crew was nice ."
Cons: "They displayed for three hours something on TV, but the entire plane had no sound. When asked the crew will tell you to listen on channel 13 or 14. I told them there was no sound. I was sitting in First Class and went to check with a friend that was way back in Economy, same thing. So i told the that to the crewmember who just told me, sorry nothing I can do about. Which I can understand. What I don't understand is why they continued displaying a mute TV set for three hours. Why not just shut it off? BTW, my daughter flew from LA to Boston that same day and exactly the same thing happened on her plane."
Cons: "Had 2 plane tickets to Puerto Rico for my mom funeral But all the sudden my dad passed away one week before the date Iso a have to change the date They did charge me $200 and the other ticket was for my friend was my support he couldn't go cause he's job So I call and they said yes that they gonna help me with the refund all I need is a dead certificate so I send it the papers by email Now they telling me that they can't gave me the refund All my brothers and sisters didn't have no problem with South west air line and other airlines they understood the problem And they did everything without problems Worst service ever Not flying with them ever again"
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time departure"
Cons: "I traveled with this carry on for numerous flights and for the last three legs of this trip w/of having to check it. For some reason they made me check it. because I had to spend time at the baggage claim carousels I almost missed the last train of the night back home. Fortunately all is fine, but it caused unnecessary stress."
Pros: "I had a great experience overall. I don't give 5 stars because there is always room for improvement no matter how good your service is."
Cons: "Size of the snacks"
Pros: "New plane, great entertainment. Good service! Clean plane ."
Pros: "More confortable seats."
Cons: "20 min delay at Dallas International"
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "My stroller was taken right before boarding (as expected), when it was returned after the flight it was broken. We were delayed when leaving PR, after a slow boarding process. Then delayed once more when arriving."
Pros: "The flight to Miami was changed to Chicago but it was still comfortable. The seats were nice and having overhead tv was still nice."
Pros: "Todo estubo muy bien"
Pros: "Easy booking, Great prices"
Cons: "Arrived to the airport as suggested based on my departure time; only to find out that my flight was going to be delayed. Delays happen, i understand; however this delay impacted me catching my next connecting flight. There were no attendant at the designated gates to help me in Puerto Rico and calling directly was a nightmare. Never made it to Miami or to lax. Instead I was put on an even longer flight, San Juan to Philadelphia."
Pros: "My experience with American Airlines was horrible I was on flight 1357 and me and my husband started boarding the plane my husband stopped so put the bag in his seat the flight attendant Sonya #695655 taliago Portuguese was very nasty rude and disrespectful and came off very racist she told my husband to sit down and move out the house as he was placed in his bag on top of his seat then when my husband told her he was placing his bag up over the seats she asked to see his pass his boarding pass then he told her he just wanted to put his bag up over the other seat because there was no more bathroom over his seat she argue with my husband after my husband left the situation alone she then comes in with another flight attendant who was more Ruder than her it was a 20-minute delay with the both of them yelling at us and threatening to kick us off the plane then didn't offer us any drinks or snacks she kept giving my huaband nasty looks the whole 4hours she was very racist and I would never take American Airlines again experience was horrible"
Cons: "This is my first time flying American Airlines and my last time I'm a human being I am African American and Puerto Rican and just because of the color of my skin I was going to get put off the plane bad experience"
Pros: "The videos"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Cons: "If it wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "Got there"
Cons: "Way too expensive"
Pros: "The crew was average"
Cons: "It was an average flight ... nothing to complain about !"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "There is completely no free snacks, just drinks (excluding alcohol). The maintenance didn't sign some papers for the plane which cause the unnecessary delay."
Cons: "The flight was late leaving and most of the passengers needed to catch connecting flights, so there was some anxiety as the crew didn't have any information as to whether or not we'd be able to connect."
Pros: "Everyone was cordial"
Cons: "Entertainment system, especially the sound was poor"
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Sick people coughing and crying babies. :D"
Pros: "The seat space was good and the flight ended without incident."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which happens, but there was no communication as to why or how long it would be or any other information. In flight the crew were barely visible as I had to ask for refreshments and then they brought it around for everyone. Next was cleanup which took way longer before it showed up."
Cons: "The plane are old. The over head bends are smaller than any plane built recently. The enteratianment system has issues and the headphone noise comes out blurred (I overheard other people having the same problem), the staff is rude, the food was awful, and I was late arriving on both flights (we never left on time)."
Pros: "Flights were very good. I was concerned about the buy food on board option but it worked well. The food was good and it cost less than buying in the airport and bringing on board. Using the charge card to pay wend smoothly and seemed not to slow the process at all. Good job Air Canada."
Pros: "Beautiful new 787"
Cons: "Entertainment options could be more plentiful."
Cons: "poor entertainment choices. Reading lights didn't work. I traveled with my wife, we were unable to read because reading lights didn't work."
Cons: "Air Canada changed this flight to a red eye. And didn't let us know until months later by then we had booked our accommodation they don't allow refunds so we had to go regardless. But let me tell you we would have cancelled if possible"
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. We were delayed and rerouted to Toronto but not given enough information. We spent an average for an hour waiting for take off each time."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"
Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "The landing of the aircraft was second to none when we landed in Calgary."
Cons: "The seats we were sitting in were uncomfortable. There seemed to be a ridge near the back of the seat cushion and it was very uncomfortable for the entire trip."
Cons: "There was a build-up of delays for domestic flights, namely from Toronto to Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary (the ones I heard). I was on the Toronto to Calgary flight, which was supposedly delayed from 16:45 till 18:55 EST, but the actual boarding time was closer to 19:45 EST. Once all the passengers were boarded, the crew informed us that the pilot was missing. Another 20 minutes went by before he was located, at which point we were informed that the first mate was missing as well. By the time the pilot and first mate were both on the aircraft, it took another 30 minutes for them to get the aircraft ready. My flight from Toronto to Calgary was supposed to arrive at 19:40 MDT, the actual arrival time was 23:00 MDT. As a passenger, I am annoyed to say the least."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "I had a very large man behind me and couldn't recline my seat an ounce therefore I couldn't sleep the entire flight. I think if your a certian size you should have to buy a seat with more room instead of make everyone else uncomfortable. The food was almost inedible, and there wasn't much more than chips or chocolate bars to pick up in That section of the Airport before flying out :( Entertainment choices were excellent though!"
Pros: "Honestly, can't expect to be ridiculously comfortable being a 6'2 female on an airplane. The staff was friendly, running about doing their jobs. The plane was clean, temperature was a bit chilly but hey, it's all good. Overall, it got me from point a to point b. And that's really all you can ask for. Thanks everyone!"
Cons: "Air was chilly. Leg room obviously because I'm so tall. Other than those two things, it was as enjoyable as it could have possibly been."
Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Pros: "Staff were very nice"
Cons: "2 out of 4 of my meals were incorrect. I had asked for vegan meals and 2 of them were clearly not vegan."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and helpful!"
Cons: "This was the last leg of a 24 hour journey from Venice to Seattle for my sister and me. After having a 3 1/2 hour layover, our plane was supposed to leave at 6:30 PM and kept getting delayed. One of the biggest frustrations was the lack of communication by the staff! We could see them at the counter where our gate was but no one would come out and talk to us! Our plane finally got off the ground at 8:30 PM!"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Everything was as scheduled"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Eventually they got us there."
Cons: "They cancelled the sat flite. Little communication . Left us after 6 hours and 11 pm to fend for our selves with no luggage. No compensation. It was awful."
Pros: "A fine flight, considering how small the plane was."
Cons: "Boring food. Better than none at all, I suppose. I had the vegan option. Perhaps they are trying to discourage vegetarians from eating on the plane at all? It took half an hour on the phone to even arrange it."
Pros: "Safe landing. Rescheduled and was only 1.5h behind"
Cons: "Our 6:30am flight was cancelled without any notice, no phone call, no email to tell us. Took over an hour to get through on the phone to see if we could reschedule to the next available flight"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Pros: "On time, excellent flight."
Cons: "There was only a very limited choice of movies to select from."
Cons: "It was late arriving in from TO. We had to pre board due to a handicapped companion and there was no time to settle with all the rest of the passengers shoving to get on due to the lateness. The majority of the flight was through turbulence. No one helped with placing bags for the handicapped in the overhead. They did not call for the wheelchair at arrival nor was there an attendant att arrival to push the chair up the ramp."
Pros: "Food has to be paid for on board- and the quality is not that great. Friendly staff willing to please"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost an hour from Calgary to Toronto (technical - computer issue). On the return flight from Toronto, the flight was also delayed (seat issue)."
Cons: "The boarding crew did a poor job of giving direction. In spite of the fact that boarding by zone was not specified, I was reprimanded by staff for boarding when I did. I found it very disrespectful that the staff reprimanded me for their own error. When I pointed out that they had not called a zone the ground staff lied and said they had called the zone. I strongly recommend staff receive remedial customer service training. This was an incredibly negative experience - not to mention undermined the otherwise decent experience that the Air Canada flight team provided."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride"
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer. Did provide a $10 meal voucher. Good to know Air Canada values my total trip delay time at $2/hr"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Flight landed earlier than scheduled making my connecting flight much easier"
Pros: "Nice big plane, good movies, good overhead storage"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "Amazing crew and good seats."
Cons: "In my experience everything was great."
Pros: "Airplanes, entertainment, boarding, check in"
Cons: "Food, conections"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Pros: "Crew was nice friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Free food. This was a three hour and 55 minute flight. You could at least give a sandwich. I don’t fly often but, I was with a group of us. I take snacks everywhere I go so I was not humbug it would have been nice."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for more than 4 times, I lost the transport and I will have to spend the night with my brother at the airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 4 times, I lost the transport and I will have to spend the night with my brother at the airport."
Pros: "My economy plus seat was good (once I finally got it) and for all the hassle they did free tv for the whole plane. THey found a new plane FAST!"
Cons: "They changed gates last minute - plane was in for maintenance and slight delay - then cancelled that plane - did the series of 15 minute additional delays. They found a new plane - changed the gates (big distance) again - and 'the computer' had reseated 1/2 the plane. DISTASTER to fix."
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "Basically realized that I won’t fly again if it’s not first class ."
Cons: "When the flight attendant was serving the food, he hit my knee with the cart, I got mad of course because it made no sense that he was pushing the car from behind towards he back of a plane. That can’t happen. I can’t “seat back and relax “ if I need to be worried about getting my knee hurt."
Cons: "It took a very long time and multiple stops to get to my destination which should not have taken so long. Also it was extremely expensive for such a difficult itenerary to go from SJU to PVD."
Pros: "Really disatisfied"
Cons: "the poor attempt to help me when they canceled my flight 3 times"
Pros: "Traveling from SJU to GSP, my mom got to the airport in SJU for her 1am flight. To find out it had been canceled. No call or email before hand, the had to wait until 2am to change the flight and get a hotel voucher. After that, next day they board the plane and de-board the plane due to mechanical problems. Another night and just a couple of 10 vouchers. She never received an explanation or recompense for loosing part of her trip in the san juan airport. This is the second time ahe has gone thru this in the same year with United. Awful experinece."
Cons: "No warning for cancelation. No explanation of what is happening and no effort to make it better."
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "The personnel was very rude. They charged me for my Service Dog which is illegal. Personnel yelled at me for having my service dog with me in the seat. They changed our seats, even though we picked them when buying them for a reason and my boyfriend and I ended up sitting in different lanes. Horrible experience. Landing and take off of the plane felt horrible. They double charged for one service dog. Even though I provided the Dr's note and her service dog tag."
Pros: "The crew Personnel was courtesy and there were friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like the process of me having either laptop or some kind of computer to see the TV set because I can't afford that and that's why I had to be looking side-to-side to watch TV also changing to Gates when I got to Chicago I had to change three gates C24 B6 and B2 it was too much changes in a short time that has to be improved."
Cons: "Boarding. Board by inside seat to outside seat and it'll go much faster."
Pros: "The attention of the captain with the passengers and that we arrived 10 minutes before"
Pros: "The crew were very polite and friendly"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the seat were to small."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "The flight attendant was super rude an racist to one of the passengers"
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Layover for every flight, technical problems with plane, boarding & unboarding the plane, uncomfortable, never again"
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Cons: "I have never flown United before. This being mg first time attempting to, has lead me to believe that I will never choose united airlines. After boarding my early morning flight from San Juan to Houston, all passangers were seated we were at a stand still for 2hrs before being instructed to depart the plane. We were sent back to the service desk for rerouting. This line was also an hour and 1/2 long . Fortunately I was able to transfer to another airline, but this overral experience with United was horrible."
Pros: "It was quick to checkin but considering we were one of the few flights it should have been that way."
Cons: "No snacks were given to my kids cuz they were sleeping, the plane was freezing took a lil while until someone finally listened to the complaints and turned the heat up. No one was able to give us direction at San Juan airport all information desk were closed. It was a very stressful frustrating time at the airport. We were flying with 2 young kids at 2am and there was no body there to help, anyone we asked question we were given the wrong info not pleased one bit."
Pros: "Even though I change my date of flight everything was good, very good customer service100 percent."
Pros: "It was an over night flight and I usually fall asleep on those, but sometimes I have to wake up due to noises etc. This wasn't the case. Thanks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we have to pay for the entertainment what it's that One of flight attendant was getto, saying bad words and unhelpful The guy at the gate unhelpful in other airlines if my family and I have seats away from each other they will help you to be together specially if you have children. In united the guy didn't even bother to look in the system and just told me that that's the only thing he has I asked again and he's told me no because if he help me the flight will be delayed and I laugh and then I said are u serious so I told him that the only thing that he needs to do it's to call the person that has the seat next to my family and ask if he or she can switch seats with me that's all and he just walked away. Very unprofessional most of the staff. I'm a ARMY VETERAN 90% disabled and my wife ssg Ayala active duty the flights that we took on our deployments were smoother than the united airlines flights"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "Nothing to eat"
Cons: "I was upgraded to first class. This was the first time this has happened to me, and I was excited. I had a great experience there and am grateful for it! The trip was quick, with low turbulence and no air pockets. I felt good. Thanks."
Pros: "I like the boarding process and the confort."
Cons: "My birthday was yesterday, August 22, and we were traveling to Atlanta, and at the San Juan airport the flight to Chicago was delayed so we upgrade to first class because we don have enough time to get birthday diner in the stop in Chicago to Atlanta, so the thing was that they didn't have enough meals for the costumers, they were 2 meals short , my husband couldn't eat so we ask for other options and they only had 2 thing that my husband couldn't eat, because they were horrible. So that brought my husband mad, so it was not enjoyable because every time he tried to do something to feel calm again but they couldn't do anything to help us calm down. They keep telling us that it was her mistake that she miscounted and that they didn't give them enough snacks, we didn't had snacks for the rest of the flight it was stressed full. Tomorrow i have to travel again back to Puerto Rico, and im scared that tomorrow will be a horrible day traveling with United, with no space for being comfortable with no food for 9 hours, im worried that the flight is delayed again and that a lost my flight back home, were my dogs are in a hotel till that night so im scared to have to pay another night for my dogs, and I wouldn't be able to pay it. I hope you could help me to figure something out to make this experience more enjoyable my phone number is 7876440442 Zaimee Esteves and Gian K Cruz"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks Well think it was only water or orange juice available"
Cons: "I have no complaints so far"
Pros: "The crew members during boarding were sensitive and very urgent in the process."
Cons: "The only delayed flights were the ones fron United, all the other airlines were on time. The attendant was stubborn and made comments not appreciated I lost my connecting flight in Houston and had to stay 8 hour in the airport until 6M Horrible experience"
Cons: "Having to pay for food and WiFi access."
Pros: "Nothing. I'm aprecciate if they call me because we have so many problems with the fly. 787-688-5109"
Cons: "The service was bad. Im never fly again with united air line. Never recommended hider"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and professional."
Cons: "I wouldn't know since I wasn't on it and I'm still in the airport waiting for my flight. I have to try to get comfortable on the floor right now."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The space between the seats, so small. Every time someone next to you needs to get out you have to get up too. So annoying. And the restrooms were not clean."
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the video entertainment was top notch, bathrooms were very roomy compared to other planes and flight attendants were nice to us. I only want to ride on these style planes from now on. They also were quick to connect the gate bridge which is important to me. I couldnt believe that I actually wanted the flight to be longer to watch more movies."
Cons: "Im not sure when this happened, but in an effort to add another row or two of seats - you are no longer able to put your seat back. It almost feels like you are actually leaning forward in your chair, 4 hours later, it equals the most uncomfortable flight of my entire life. In addition to one measly snack package, no drinks, charging for a movie... conclusion is I will NEVER fly a united flight again. Please Beware flyers, this might only be worth it if your flight is under 1 hour..."
Pros: "Liked that the airline paid the Hotel expense"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled for maintenance reasons but many other airlines did the flights that night"
Pros: "The crew was great. Nice and very polite and was a very nice landing."
Cons: "Delats delays and more delays, also I'm a 6'5 guy who needs his space, very little leg room."
