Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience with the airline was horrible"

Pros: "the crew was great and very friendly."
Cons: "I wish my return itinerary hadn't changed, that was a bummer. going from 10+ hours to something like 16+ hours was annoying."
Pros: "Excelente atención todos fueron muy amables y atentos."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable and did not recline. The movie was not accesible. Regardless of the confirmation, due to not been able to do the check in I lost my seat and was standby because Avianca sold more seats that what they had. I believe Avianca should keep a more international menu."

Pros: "Once you are inside, things are good."
Cons: "My experience with Avianca is to many delays flights. Today it was the same."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay to leave Roatan"
Pros: "Confortable sitting with better leg room than AA, Delta and most of the US airlines. The flight attendants are elegant, well spoken and very professional. The plane was clean and got hot food service in coach. Even through the rough weather the flight was uneventful although our flight was delayed Avianca moved us to another flight and transferred our luggage automatically without us having to do anything. That is the service you should expect. I was very pleased. Good job!"

Pros: "Great service, awesome amenities. Exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "No individual entertainmente system, food was not good, getting out of the plane climbing downstairs and then had to wait 20 minute in bus until people in wheelchair were taken downstairs and into bus, crazy! They should have a special bus for handicapped/ older people"
Pros: "Crew ❤️ and all attentions.."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, good entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing. everything was wrong. I had planned to stay one day in Bogotá and this did't happen"

Pros: "Everything was perfect."

Pros: "That the flights depart on time"
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive in Buenos Aires and the service to claim was not good or emphatic. I think that the luggage need to be tracked in all stages specially when you are travel doing connections."
Pros: "After decades of near weekly air travel, I had no expectation of being wowed by an airline. Until Avianca. What a refreshing experience! The seats were comfortable and clean; and their complimentary in-flight entertainment was first-rate. All that for a surprisingly reasonable fare."
Cons: "Falta de respeto a los miembros Diamante."
Pros: "We just spent the last 3 weeks in South America including Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos. We took a total of 9 flights with Avianca including a couple of 50-55 minute connections. Flights were consistently on time and service was great. Amazingly, our luggage made it too despite the short connections. Service was very good. The crew was pleasant and they were always serving drinks and food/ snacks even on short flights although food is usual coach fare. All in all a very positive experience. Most of the North American airlines could learn a thing or two regarding punctuality, service and baggage handling."

Cons: "me dejaron varada en bogota mi vuelo de 10 horas se transformo en 24 hs con 2 escalas un horror ME ESTAFARON"
Pros: "Crew, comfort, food and entertainment"
The check-in in Jamaica was a disaster
Shelly gave us good service. Check in however was another story. Quite the disappointment actuslly
Another good flight newer plane therefore better seats. The landing was excellent!
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the flight attendants Keddie deserves praise for bringing me snacks even after the main serving was over when I was sleeping."
Cons: "Boarding at JAC was done by walking to plane. Signage for the correct plane was absent, and some passengers were erroneously trying to board the wrong aircraft."
Pros: "The comfort of the seating, the flight crew, and the services Delta provides. I always have a pleasant time flying with them."
Pros: "new plane good flight"
Cons: "seat space"
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing Best flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats are never excellent"
Pros: "The flight landed early. Check-in staff were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a debacle. Flight was oversold. Passenger had trouble boarding when their group was called."
Pros: "There was an available seat next to me"
Cons: "I had to walk from one end of Minneapolis airport to the other end all within 35 mins to catch a connecting flight, tram was not in service. Not fun!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Kat and the other stewards were very friendly."
Cons: "Maybe the option for free upgrade to first class if flight is not full??"
Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Pros: "Everything except lack of internet connection AFTER paying $19.95"

Pros: "Enjoyed the ease of check in the spacious gate and the cleanliness of the planes cabin"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "This is the second flight in a row in which Delta has either cancelled or rescheduled my flight at the last minute. Last time I was stranded in the Atlanta airport overnight waiting literally all night for them to return my luggage (which never came, and then was late even to my final destination). I will not be using Delta in the future."
Pros: "We loved Jaimie and Dana with Delta, two super nice ladies working at check-in and bag drop counter. We were running late and a bit confused, both of the ladies helped us with the whole process, re-assured is that all will be well. They did so with a great genuine attitude. Thank you again Jamie and Dana :)))"
Cons: "More leg room wouldn’t hurt!"
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Jamaica security and boarding, despite a crowded airport and gate, was very quick. Appeared chaotic but was friendly and efficient. Boarding was orderly and efficient. Flight was smooth, seats luxurious (comfort+ aisle and window seats with an empty center!). Arrival into ATL half an hour early."
Cons: "Only one offer of beverage on 3 hr. flight. "Food" at dinner time was chips or crackers. Arriving 1/2 hour early we sat on tarmac for 50 minutes before reaching gate. 20+ minute walk to customs, 30 minute line."
Pros: "on time, good food, good films enough space to sleep in economy."
Cons: "the stewardess only went up one side of the plane offering eye shades and when i asked for one she seemed really miffed."
Pros: "A screen with free movies is nice."
Pros: "Staff. Beautiful excellent"
Cons: "Need more food"
Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."
Pros: "Delta and Westjet staff are of great help to me."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Pros: "Flight was quick, Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was older with no power connections"
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles."
Pros: "Upgrades, staff on and off the plane"
Cons: "The reservation system crash, it happened less than 24 hrs before our return flight to come home, fortunately it was resolved but it was a bit stressful"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Unsmiling, miserable staff. Seats like concrete. Cheap and nasty snacks"
Pros: "As always seats are spacious"
Cons: "They weren't selling food on this flight which is entirely too long to be without a meal"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
I travel with a Service Dog. Have a relief area please on both sides of security. With fake grass got the dogs and washing area so it will not smell of hog urine.
Pros: "The crew was great and good customer service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "One Cooa employ tried to force me to check my carry on. They did not ask if I wanted to check it. They told me I must. They ridiculously placed the bag on top of the carry-on measuring device and told me it was too big. I had just gotten off another Copa flight from Port of Spain where there was no issue at all."
Cons: "Food was bland and simple (Aeroméxico offers slightly better, would look to model after amazing Air Asia setup) and would add more movies to the inflight entertainment system. But overall, all good!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "No entertainment on board."
Pros: "I asked to be seated next to my travel partner at check and was told it was done. But I ended up in the last row and he was in row 17.....So much for being a frequent flyer on Copa. Plus there was no over head compartments in the back of the bus for carry one. The staff was not truthful not helpful."
Cons: "Much better treatment especially since I have Copa frequent flyer miles. The hombre that cheed me in did not try to seat my partner and I close."
Pros: "Seat comfortable. Staff accomodating"
Cons: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Business class is terrible value for money. 5 sogfyt chicken nuggets with a tiny bowl of lettuce. Disgusting waste of money."
Pros: "Our flight attendants seemed a bit distant. They got the job done but didn’t seem friendly."
Cons: "It was fine."
Pros: "It was a comfortable satisfying flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Delivery of baggage at SFO terminal"
Cons: "Blankets could have been clean. Crew could have been nicer, flight could have been without constant turbulence."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and routine - no problems"
Cons: "Really didn’t have any concerns."
Pros: "Everything was top notch!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient in performing their duties, the meal choices were very good and both flights departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Some form of entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent airline. Best to connect the America's."
Pros: "I liked the fact that we were able to get free meals and the first check in luggage free."
Pros: "staff/captain and flight attendants"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment selection was small, could have been bigger"
Pros: "Like the service of food"
Pros: "Atención muy buena y cómodo el avión"
Cons: "food was horrible. seats were uncomfortable. staff was barely attentive"
Pros: "Entretenimento, tripulação cordial e malas chegaram corretamente."
Cons: "O raio-x antes do embarque foi muito tumultuado. A comida não estava muito boa e como sentamos no final só sobrou uma opção. Não tinha cobertor para todos e nem travesseiro."
Pros: "Friendly staff always had a smile on. Good food and amazing service."
Pros: "Flight was on time. It was my connection flight, arrived from Mendoza ARG and continued to Toronto. In Mendoza I got boarding pass for second leg of flight (Panama - Toronto) with the gate number and boarding time. Everything was correct, not even gate number changed. Plane was new, crew OK, food OK. It was a pleasent flight."
Pros: "The cancelled my reservation the day of the flight. It took me 24 hours to get home and I had to re-book my own flight and take united airlines."
Cons: "The food was horrible and the seats need to be redone"
Pros: "The flight left on time and was smooth."
Cons: "-The staff was very rude -I wanted to sit at my gate, but it required a second check in. Right before that I bought a sparkling water for the flight, which they wouldn't let me bring in. Because we weren't allowed to bring fluids over 3 ounces, I had no water bottle for the 6.5 hour flight and was very thirsty the whole time. The drinks served are very small."
Pros: "Straight forward, no BS. Love it"
Pros: "There really isn't much to complain about with Copa as they're prompt and efficient. I usually fly on their Embraer E190ARs which are pretty spartan when it comes to additional amenities as compared to the Boeing 737 fleet. However the business class seats are comfortable have a reasonable recline for such a small aircraft."
Cons: "If you're flying on a flight operated by Copa Colombia, be prepared for business class being European styled with regular economy class seats except on the E190 there is no middle row to block off."
Cons: "Old episodes of series. Need newer movie options"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and informative. Even though it was a full flight it was very punctual."
Cons: "How people are randomly pulled of flights and stuck in countries and cities they dont want to be in due to the airlines overselling policies. It doesnt provide security or comfort as a flyer with the airline and makes me think twice about buying again with airlines that can do this type of things to their customers."
Cons: "select a seat when you buy your ticket, and make sure you checkin and get your boarding pass as soon as possible."
Pros: "Ontime departure!"
Cons: "Conecting flight to Guatemala was over sold"
Pros: "You did not have a category for these persons"
Pros: "I've always had a great experience when I travel with Copa!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I got bumped. Needs to be ther for work very inconvienant"
Pros: "All was. Ganythingood"
Cons: "Everything was below standard"
Cons: "Did not ask for volunteers and gave preference to people who di on line check in. Ridiculous joke of an airline."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Food, craft, seats, entertainment, costumer service... everything horrible"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "We liked everything. It was short but great."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food."
Cons: "Cheap earphones provide very bad quality of sound. I barely could hear anything. I had to use my personal earphones."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the service excellent."
Cons: "Copa charged me for luggage on the way back that didn't charge me on the way to. They told me it was a mistake, they should have charged me, but it was YOUR MISTAKE, not mine. I wouldn't have take it if I had to pay. Customer service was AWFUL. Stick to your mistakes, value your customers."
Really different experience sitting in business! Comfortable and great service.
There wasn’t an option for not applicable under food. No food on this flight. Good coffee though.
Pros: "was just ok, nothing spectacular"
Cons: "west jet customer service reps in mobay are no good. they need customer service training"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process"
Cons: "due to weather a pile of flights were cancelled, we had to call West Jet and get re-routed"
Pros: "They weren't fussy about carry on."
Cons: "After checking in 24 hours prior and receiving my boarding passes when we got to the airport we found out our seats were changed and only one of them was confirmed if not for one empty seat on the plane we would have had to stay behind this is unacceptable That we were not informed of these changes"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and no on board entertainment"
Cons: "The cabin was a bit warm"
Pros: "The wide variety options of movies/shows to watch."
Cons: "The food wasn't the best"
Pros: "Lots of leg space"
Cons: "Poor communication on the reason for the delay"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Nice staff."
Cons: "Poor entertainment. I usually watch movies on my iPad but there was no wifi and the available TV shows were not to my taste, the screens were small and not clear. The magazine was boring, no games to play. Flight delayed an hour for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The lady at the checkin desk volunteered me to check my carry on and told me that she would charge me if I didn’t comply. ( there was more than enough room on the plane for me to store it). The plane wreaked of poo the whole flight and it gave me a head ache, which my Tylenol was in my carry on that the lady forced me to check. And the flight was only supposed to be delayed 15 min, and we didn’t take off until 45 min later, which made us miss our connection. Very disappointing service/ flight from WestJet!"
Pros: "The staff on board the westjet plane were nice but a bit short (except one blonde women flight attendant, she was lovely). The others seemed to be a bit short, likely due to heat or annoyance at punta cana airport"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was by far a complete failure. I understand we are held hostage by PUJ airport but westjet needs to step up their canadian staff there. Language by westjet staff basically Spanish only and rude. We waited on a bus to drive 10 feet to our plane and the driver seemed to enjoy letting us sit in a closed bus with babies and children and elderly. One day this will cause a serious medical issue and westjet will pay dearly. Again, I am aware we cant control that but having a canadian manager there to ensure common sense is used with their customers from gate to plane is a must. Until better I will never fly westjet from there again. On the plane they ran out of food. Again major organizational issues from the companies point of view. Also made me pay twice to pick my seats on my connecting flights. This is petty and cheap. I will be demanding a discount or rebate from westjet due to all the above. If not my story will continue."
Cons: "I was told I had time to run to washroom before boarding, and 5 min later the boarding area was empty and I was locked out. Plane was ready to leave me because the guy at desk forgot to tell them I wasn’t there yet. Thankfully I was able to hunt someone down to let them know I was there."
Pros: "Easy to change flight same day to one flight earlier."
Cons: "Forced me to check in my (undersized) duffel bag carry on. Then forgot To load the bag onto the plane. WestJet cited a questionable and unlikely reason, that the bag was not loaded due to baggage to passenger weight ratio for safety reasons, even though flight was far from full with multiple empty rows. Plus there was a grand total of only approximately 12 pieces of baggage at the carousel. Also the plane’s auxiliary power generator was broken, which meant no a/c while on the tarmac before and after takeoff. Cabin was warm though not intolerable, however led to delays at both origin and destination airport due to having to wait for an external power supply truck. No in flight service due to supposed turbulence. Which would have been fine, except there really wasn’t much turbulence. Didn’t affect me, but my neighbor’s entertainment system was broken. However, these multiple issues and the broken power generator makes me wonder about what other maintenance issues have been overlooked or not addressed. Most of all I was offended by the clear lack of honesty about my baggage. If there really was a weight limit safety issue despite the plane being far from maximum capacity, then there are much bigger issues with the plane that makes me never want to fly WestJet again. But don’t insult your passengers by lying to cover up your carelessness. My baggage arrived on the following (my original) flight, but that which was delayed by nearly two hours. I’ve flown on United, Delta, Southwest, JetBlue, WowAir, AA, Alaskan, Virgin, American Airlines, United Airways, China Air, EVA, and Air Canada. So far, WestJet has been by far my worst experience."
Cons: "Poorly organized departure lines had plane boarding late, resulting in a long wait on apron for takeoff slot. Late arrival in Toronto meant waiting for a gate, and then customs delay due to multiple arrivals at once"
Pros: "Left on time or mighty close to it. Arrived on time. Safe and mostly smooth flight. Flight attendants and pilot was friendly. Liked the price for a direct flight."
Cons: "Tight squeeze in the seats in terms of having the back of the passenger in front of you right in your face practically."
Cons: "The flight was 5 hours 40 min late The Flight attended (her name was if not mistaken Staysy or start with S) was staying at the door as a security guard in a detention center without formal greeting “welcome on board”, no smile at all and later jumped on me regarding my bag. I was seated when her collage pulled my back bag from the compartment to make room for a bigger luggage, left it on the seat next to me and said will take care later. With frustrating tone Staysy showed up and command me to put it under the seat. I told her to put it under and not to command me with this tone... as it was not my decision the bag to be there. She did put it under but kept making comments and even did not apologize. A frustrating flights - over 5 hours late with spicy flight attendant attitude."
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."
Pros: "The cabin crew were outstanding on WS709 today. This is my fourth trip with Westjet, and today stood above. Diane was beyond efficient and pleasant while maintaining a smile and grace, while a number of unattended children were onboard. My seat was changed, and that's fine - mostly because of the manner in which the crew at Pearson handled it. Then, I couldn't resist giving up my re-assigned (centre) seat so that two sisters could sit together. The two folk in my row were lovely, they talked more than I did, but when I joined in, it was a genuinely pleasant conversation. Three strangers, meeting per chance. The woman next to me had given her seat up for a family to sit together, so it really was a chance encounter! Diane needs to be promoted!"
Cons: "While things happen, I wonder why when I was readied a seat, it was missed that two children, sisters, were sitting in separate rows? Should they have automatically been assigned two seats together - they were unaccompanied. As happens, an 'aunt-like' woman was seated next to them, and again, Diane was an another in-charge auntie!"
Pros: "It was clean and on time"
Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."
Pros: "Crew was good as usual."
Cons: "Thought the flight may have been delayed due to issues with ice rain in Toronto. From what was said, it wasn't that, some other issue with the plane and a cancelled flight in the west. No email in advance, no apologies, no freebies (like even a stupid sandwich). You sit an extra 2 and a half hours in an airport with a 5 year old before a 4 hour flight, and see how much the lack of anything grates. And paying for the first bag on the flight. And the emails they did send were after we were already at the airport-in no time to do any good. I Usually like West Jet , but losing my faith in them. Wonder how flair is..."
Pros: "The staff providing excellent service and kindness for my mother as she requires assistance in boarding and disembarking. She advised she was well taken care of. On time, friendly."
Cons: "Yea missed the connection due to taking an obviously not sick young woman off flight from Jamaica I am a doctor"
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: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"
Cons: "Even though it was the first flight of the day, WestJet still left an hour late which meant I missed my connecting flight. That meant I also had to rebook my ground transportation an additional cost. Why they couldn't manage to get the first flight of the day out on time, I don't know. This stuff happens, and I am generally a patient and understanding person. That said, WestJet not only caused inconvenience and added expense, the airline had absolutely destroyed my snowboard bag. It was damaged so badly that I had to tape it up just so I could get out of the airport without losing my stuff everywhere. The WestJet employees didn't say anything about the damage, and clearly hoped I would just go away without making a claim. To make matters worse, they only pay part of the cost to replace my luggage."
Cons: "I flew Toronto-Calgary-Palm Springs and then Las Vegas back to Toronto. Only the Calgary-Palm Springs flight (the shortest leg) had seat back entertainment including satellite TV (although it cut out half way there). West Jet should have such entertainment available on all of their longer flights (consistent with the likes of Jet Blue that has had it for years). I would also point the disaster at the West Jet recommended Airport Lounge i Toronto. I almost missed the flight because there was A. No flight information available in the lounge like everywhere else B. The TV available in the lounge was on the information channel which included the time but froze up at some point (I checked the time and though I had about an hour before the flight and had hour til boarding. When I looked up again about twently minutes later the time was exactly the same. C. The Lounge was 20 minutes from the gate and this distance was a total surprise. I provided my boarding pass and the receptioist said nothng about the distance (unlike other airport lounges that I have visited). Note that I stopped into the Chinook Lounge in Calgary to see if they had addressed all of the complaints. I asked how far away my gate was and what steps I had to go through to get there and they had no clue. It turns out that one must take a shuttle bus, go though security again and then go through US customs so bottom line is that one needs the adviised three hours and the Chinook Lounge is essentially useless for travellers connecting to a US destination in Calgary. I would suggest that perhaps your CEO or senior staff should go through the experience of using the above Lounges and believe me this would result in A. Demanding significant improvements or B. Recommending Alternative Lounges or C. Advising that these lounges not be used (and certainly not featuring them on your web site). One additional comment. I arranged to meet someone on your Toronto-Vegas flight at McCarron (last Tuesday nite). There are 26 different luggage carousels so I positioned myself in the middle and monitored the flight arrival information. Officials at McCarron Airport failed to indicate that your plane had arrived. As a result, I was delayed in making my way to meet the individual at Carousel 26 and we missed making contact. Most Toronto passengers were already leaving with their luggage so I approached one of your staff who to put it lightly was useless (not sure why she was there). She would not tell me if my party was on the flight or even when it landed or provide any solution. The McCarron Flight Info Board still did not indicate arrival of your flight even after basically all the luggage was gone. I finally got someone who worked at McCarron to contact the PA Announcer and ask my party to meet me at Carousel 26. The PA Announcement came over a few minutes later ... but said to meet at Carousel 16. Gross incompetence all the way around. Dennis Egan 519-513-1025"
Pros: "Tall dark haired flight attendant from Prince Edward Island was very accommodating is very professional. He had his jacket the whole time and it made flying on west jet seem sophisticated and like we were important enough to dress up for. Also the female flight attendant that did the announcements was great. She made the announcements in a friendly, slightly humorous way rather than sounding bored and businesslike and "let's just get through this" manner."
Cons: "Lack of ice for drinks and snacks. Also, I have noticed that on many flights now, they start with paid service and then free beverage service and often that is about 2 hours into the flight. I realize you probably do that to keep those who need booze from getting anxious or angry, etc. and to make money, but it makes me, who paid the same for my ticket, feel iike steerage class. It would be nice if those of us who aren't puchasing booze (which also includes those who want booze) could get served first, then do the paid. These are little things, but would distinguish you from others. If I knew when I flew with West Jet I could have several packs of crackers or cookies or a small cheese and cracker pack along with ice in my drink and quick soft drink service along with flight attendants that were allowed to be friendly and have a sense of humor, I would consider West Jet more often and even pay a little more. I would pay to be treated a little better than the others."
Pros: "My first trip started on a poor note; I got to airport about an hour before boarding, only to find out that my flight was rescheduled from 9:30am to about 6:15pm ( or so) on that same day without prior notice. I went up to the counter and asked for confirmation for the switch and inquire if there was an issue, which may have affected my original flight. Turned out that the change was due to weather conditions at Toronto (makes sense). I had suggested that it would have been nice to receive some sort of notification, before starting that day way too early and inconvenience of going to pickup my car from the airport parking, only to come back again. The attendant sympathized with my plight and compensated me with a lunch voucher (which was nice of him and WestJet). Matter was resolved; I came back to catch my flight and the trip was wonderful :)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight was rescheduled without receiving any notification from Westjet."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The flight was average. Not great but not bad"
Cons: "I was forced to pay 50 dollars for our first piece of checked luggage on our return flight. This was not indicated to me when purchasing the ticket and absolutely horrible policy of weet jet and kayak by affiliation. How can you be selling tickets and not clearly indicating whether or baggage is not included. Also when we checked in it did not indicate this fee. It wasn’t until we got to the airport were we notified. Not that it makes a difference because obviously if we checked bags original departure we would obviously need to bring them back. The whole thing seems sleazy. Otherwise the service was pretty good."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome"
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Pros: "Friendly , helpful staff . Who know what they are doing and try to accommodate you with minimum fuss ."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind this trip"
Cons: "Sat be side large man. Took up too much space."
Pros: "Everything except the delays. I like the new app on your phone or tablet to watch movies and TV (and it's free now to watch movies like on AC!). I approve of this change westjet. The staff are very good at informing customers to make sure they download the app before boarding. However because people generally suck and don't listen there is always someone complaining about not having the app on board afterwards."
Cons: "Unfortunately this flight number is always delayed, WS269 Friday YHZ to YYZ. This is the flight I always pick for work schedule compatibility, but have found it to be delayed 30 min to 2 hrs the last 4 times I've taken it in the last 3 months."
Pros: "Everything was very good. The crew was pleasant and entertaining"
Cons: "I don’t want to give an excellent review because it leads to higher fares. But these people are pretty darn good we like to fly with them as much as possible. Two things can be corrected, however. Firstly the amount and size of carry on. If a bag or bundle looks really too big it really is too big. These people are so accommodating though they just let it go. Secondly, sometimes we check in early on line and we have a bag allowance. However, when printing a boarding pass at the airport if we say we are checking a bag the machine wants to charge for it. We always have to ask an attendant to clear this. Perhaps it’s time to fix this little issue. Like I said, I hate to give them an excellent rating because it makes it harder to get a good seat. The company is great and the folks working there are really great. Sorry to say."
Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Pros: "I arrived early to insure that I didn't run into the same troubles as my previous flight when I missed my flight through no fault of my own. This flight was much better organized and went without any issues."
Cons: "I like the concept of boarding a plane by zone however if Westjet doesn't enforce it then the zone loading is nothing but theory. Time to put it into practice Westjet."
Pros: "Free wine and beer."
Cons: "Our flight for Toronto on Sept. 5 , # WS589 was delayed of about 1 and half hour; so, me and about 20 other passengers missed our connection in Toronto. The crew said that Pearson airport was on a shut down due to severe thunderstorms. But the weather was nice and sunny when we arrived Toronto; in fact my connecting flight ( Hainan airlines HU 7995 had left 20 min. earlier- on time- for Bejing. The crew in Westjet plane told me that all airlines were delayed in Toronto airport due to bad weather , and so that I would not miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were so nice."
Cons: "There was no info about the visa requirement and that made me stressed out once I tried to check in. Seats were too small"
Cons: "We had a connecting flight through Toronto to Vancouver. First the flight was deleted from Charlotte resulting in a missed connection. In Toronto the WestJet agent directed us back to the Departure counter which required us to go back through security. There was three gate changes and the flight to Vancouver was late. Our transit to the hotel was closed resulting in an extra expense with taxi fares. Not a good experience overall."
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Cons: "Vegetarian meals are really tasty and nice"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Adequate space on the shuttle to transport persons to the aircraft"
Pros: "Quick baggage handling. Fast check In"
Cons: "Less delays. Staff was too loud and constantly disturbed with advertisements and sales pitches. Rushed meal services."
Pros: "Crew was ok, only they missed a very important detail. A passenger traveling with a baby and did changed the baby's PAMPERS right there on the seat which automatically put a putrid odor in about 10 seat perimeter that lasted for a LONG time and the crew didn't say anything until everyone complained"
Cons: "Better food and an entertainment center with movies. It's a 6 hour international flight after all."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "The crew did not serve the guest enough water. They were heard laughing at the back. I will not fly Caribbean Airlines agaim"
Pros: "Amazing flight and superb landing. Staff was friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "If beforehand passengers knew to download the airline app for In flight entertainment would have been better for a lot of people. Lucky I saved some movies to my phone otherwise it would have been a crazy boring trip"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The ticket i purchased didnt allow me to carry at least one luggage which i only learnt when i arrived at the airport. The crew was late so we left late The seat next to me was broken Only one toilet was in operation so there were always long lines The sandwich was dry You had to pay for a blanket"
Pros: "Left on time, smooth flight, easy immigration & customs in Granada. 30 min flight so no food or drink service."
Cons: "A Caribbean promotion video played with audio over speakers, just quiet enough to be unintelligible but loud enough to be irritating. Most passengers were trying to sleep."
Pros: "Priviledged to be on a flight with a female captain"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence on descent"
Cons: "We were not given at least a hot beverage on that short trip."
Cons: "Made us take another yellow fever shot (500$) although we told them we already had one. Just did not have the certificate on hand. If we returned home to get same would miss flight"
Pros: "Promt timing ."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for luggage."
Pros: "Lovely crew. Polite. Welcoming."
Pros: "We got to the check in desk in time for our flight and the attendant told us we were late so we had to be put on standby for no reason.And she also had a bad attitude in the way she handled the situation.We called Caribbean airlines and they told us there was nothing we could do about the attendant,so we won't be flying with them anymore."
Pros: "Upgraded to First Class, and the service during the flight was impeccable."
Cons: "- Flight was delayed every other hour, without reason. Staff didn't communicate what was going on. - Elderly people on wheelchairs were delayed in-transit for over 6 hours and no one attended to them until the final hour before the flight. - Staff did not want to give any reason why flight was delayed. - Flight was not even posted on the "Flight Status Board" and no one had a reason why. - Upgraded to First Class to experience it - the lounge had a few sandwiches that seemed to be sitting there for hours."
Pros: "The washroom was kept clean. Please keep this up as it is one of my concerns when I fly CA. Intermittently the flight attendants should clean it like it is done in Cathay Pacific. It makes the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats are hard and uncomfortable Food is blah, staff are fine, TV screens are small and hard to see (didn't watch movie, but glanced up occasionally) Seats are hard and uncomfortable making the whole experience miserable."
Pros: "It was spacious and we got hot meals on both legs of our round-trip flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "When I went to check in at the airport, the agent was at first saying there were no seats. This after I bought my ticket months in advance."
Pros: "Very efficient and friendly crew"
Cons: "The seat next to me looked like it was falling off. So was the magazine compartment. We had a long flight and there were no reading materials to purchase at the airport so we were really looking forward to watching a movie and were so disappointed to find that you couldn't see anything but shapes moving on the screens in front of us. im not sure why you would even offer a movie if half of the people on the plane can't even see the screens."
Cons: "Had to fly to a different island first. Hate this island hopping."
Pros: "I will continue to always shop from Kayak.com, this is my 5th trip while buyin the ticket from this site & im well pleased."
Cons: "There was a moment when i wanted to change my return flight just to catch a later one & was told i couldnt change it at the airline."
Pros: "The pilots did an excellent job in take off and landing the plane,,,"
Cons: "So smooth !!!"
Pros: "The only challenge I have is with the leg room on the flight. My experience generally was quite good."
Pros: "All went well and staff was nice."
Cons: "I wish they had better movies to watch."
Pros: "Food was great. The flight was arrived on time and the services given by the flight attendantschedule was excellent. I love flying with Caribbean airlines. That's the only airline I travel on going to and fro via Trinidad. Looking forward to fly again soon"
Pros: "i lied absolutely nothing service was extremely poor"
Cons: "i didnt like everything about this flight from food to the poor service and the rude flight attendants"

Pros: "The crew members very hosoitable."
Cons: "Judith, the pilots excellent flyers."
Pros: "Meals, easy check-in, smooth flight, pleasant staff."
Cons: "The first few pages of the website."
Pros: "My mother was provided wheelchair assistance as requested. This expedited the check in procedure. The staff was very accommodating at check in. However the flight crew was less than friendly. They asked that we remove our headphones for landing. This was very strange as we have traveled numerous times and kept our headphones on during flight."
Cons: "The smell on the late flight was unbearable. The aircraft smell of urine which permeated the air throughout the flight. I guess this being a local flight there are different standards meted out to the locals. Thank goodness that it was a quick flight."
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Number of connections, layover Time, need to go through customs three times, no food on flights"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Checking in was good, staff was very accomodating."
Cons: "We had to wait in the rain until someone with a wheel chair was lifted into the aircraft. The Airline on rainy days, should AT LEAST have active staff with umbrellas out to assist passengers. None of the staff thought it best to either have the wheelchair bound passenger board separately (before or after), or ask passengers to hold on at the side until she was lifted. Instead, passengers with children were waiting in the rain while the staff shoddily loaded the poor woman (in the rain without so much as a raincoat) into the aircraft, and with no apology to her or the now soaking wet passengers."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Nothing more than expected."
Cons: "The sound quality for the movie was terrible. Now, the Ft. Lauderdale-Piarco leg was another matter. We left 1.5 hours late, and there was so much chatter and announcements from multiple airlines, we didn't hear when ours was finally called. Several people had to come running to make it!"
Cons: "Plane problems caused three hour delay. Wauting in warm waiting room not enough seats."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was great, however the woman at the check in counter was very rude and unpleasant, even going thru security everyone had a bad attitude"
Pros: "I love everything, it was an amazing flight."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. Wasn't informed. Got no text, email or phone call. Got to the airport and had to wait 8 hrs for the next flight. Just ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "The sandwich they served was very sloppily made... Just couldn't eat it"
Cons: "Our luggage didn't even arrive in the our country until 2 days later. Luckily we were able to borrow some stuff from family in the area, but it is just crazy, they didn't even tell anyone before we got there, which meant an hour wait just to let them know we didn't have luggage, like everyone else on the flight."
Pros: "The crew was great, very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "4 hr delay due to malfunctioning AC during this time we were offered a free lunch in the airport to either KFC or Subway. Except I spent my own money buying lunch because KFC ran out of chicken, kind of funny actually. Once we finally boarded there was another delay taking off because at least a dozen customers had duplicate seating arrangements which caused a nightmare on board. Upon landing at JFK we remained on the runway for an hour and a half waiting for a gate to open up.. exhausting flight. The plane also is outdated. My recline was not functioning and the tv was small, far away and not the sharpest.."
