We , of course, had no entertainment. Good trip.

Pros: "Crew, efficiency, movie/show options"
Cons: "No alcohol, food options (vegan), tv screens in seats"
Pros: "the crew was not happy what so ever"
Pros: "Yes very accommodating and friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing it was a great flight!"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They were careless with our suitcases. When we got to Vancouver, we were missing wheels on our suitcases. 2 wheels on my husband's and 1 on mine. It made it horrible to pull the suitcases."
Pros: "I liked getting the $75 credit due to the extreme lateness of the flight."
Cons: "The passengers seemed a bit wound up after a 3 hour delay. When it was time for the safety review, several passengers were not listening to the attendants, and one attendant shouted "Hey, you need to listen. This is important. This is not a party bus." I understand her frustration, but her behavior was really unprofessional. I've been in customer service for years, and you never let your personal frustration show. She should have brought the behavior to the attention of the flight deck for the pilot to make an announcement, etc. Southwest attendants are always cool, calm and collected. I'll bear that in mind the next time I book."
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."
Pros: "The crew! And free WiFi!"
Cons: "Nothing! Was amazing"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Snacks"
Cons: "I missed the connection for a delay in Qantas for Melbourne."
Pros: "Mission accomplished—got from point A to B safely and with luggage intact"
Cons: "Plane smelled like the bathroom for the whole flight; no screens at the seats"
Cons: "No drink service - not even water."
Pros: "Flight attendants always willing to help passengers. As it was an international flight, announcements could be delivered not so fast in order foreign passengers may fully understand the instructions or announcements."
Cons: "It is hard to think if there was any detail I did not like. Everything on time and performed properly."
Pros: "Best flight we have had in a long time."
Cons: "We didn’t have any food."
Pros: "The service, The Flight attendant was sooo nice. The food was great and the seats were comfortable. The time flew by."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and free entertainment was available. Quick and easy boarding with my 2yo and rest of family. Food for purchase was also good Flight attendants were very helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "No headphones, not even for purchase... and we were not told about this until we left the gate.AND no CC for any movie Air smelled like jet fuel for a good 10 min when we were at departure and arrival gate one bathroom was covered in feces (literally) so the other 2 were always in use. There was also no announcement made stating there would be no more drink or good service after a certain point"
Pros: "Arrived on time and in one piece"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Everything else."
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed a flight that was short and sweet."
Cons: "Small cabin, little rougher ride, and small meal choices but understandable with cut backs."
Pros: "Always like Alaska flights"
Pros: "Nothing. Zero. You treated me so poorly. I will never use you again. Absolutely the worst experience of my life."
Cons: "Customer service. Customer service. Custoner service."
Pros: "Cheap air fares"
Cons: "Could not use airline websites to select seats due to using a third party agent like kayak. Had to call both Alaska Air and Air Canada before I could secure seats."
Pros: "We upgraded to first class and it was amazing! The staff was very friendly and it was a perfect end to our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Clean airplane. Seats are leather which I prefer to fabric ones. I like the adjustable head rest."
Cons: "Not crazy about having to take the shuttle to airport after deplaning."
Pros: "In Denver, the boarding process was well organized and directed by clear announcements and boarding lanes."
Cons: "In Seattle, the boarding process was chaotic and mismanaged. The ground staff gave confusing and ambiguous instructions that resulted in everyone forming a large, disorganized throng in front of the gate agent. It was as if they said "everyone get on the plane immediately, and we are only taking the first 30 people"."
Pros: "Great crew and good service"
Cons: "Flight was late. Seats were small and cramped. At LAX, had to wait on board 20 minutes for bus to immigration. Then had to stand on bus for 15 minutes while drivers chatted outside. Immigration was a nightmare at LAX. Never again."
Pros: "I liked it all"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Little cramped, but that's air travel"
Cons: "My only complaint is that after it was announced that internet was available, the next hour was spent with the internet going in and out. No big deal, but obviously not a perfect system."
Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"
Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."
Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"
Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."
Pros: "Alaska airlines is amazing. The free wifi and tv/movies was definitely a nice perk. And on top of that, the crew was so just so sweet and pleasant. Overall a great flying experience."
Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."
Cons: "Again, the size of the plane, interior."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "The staff at my connection in Seattle were not the friendliest."
Pros: "The person next to my wife was snoring for three and half hours and spilled coffee on her, besides that it was OK. I have had way better from your Alaska Airlines ..."
Cons: "I just told you..."
Pros: "Cheese & fruit, not full plane"
Cons: "Trying to connect to wifi"
Pros: "The crew was good. The flight was uneventful except for an FAA initiated delay."
Cons: "I booked these tickets several months in advance and did not get a seat next to my partner when traveling from Seattle to San Francisco. We were seated 7 rows apart. We were very disappointed with Alaska Airlines in this regard. This has never happened with any other airline that either of us has flown with. The flight to Seattle from Sam Francisco was perfect."
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Pros: "Best cheeseburger ever. Who would have thought..."
Cons: "The length of the flight. Maybe shorten it to less than 2 hours... >; ^) Ok... Really the only complaint was I was unaware of the non-reclining seats in front of the emergency row when booking the flight in. If the website notifies your when picking seats, it is very inconspicuous."
Pros: "Easy flight. No issues."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "Really good flight crew. They pointed the plane right at LAX."
Cons: "I wanted a cheeseburger but they sold out. Didn't see any movies that I wanted to watch."
Cons: "I booked the flight which goes from PDX to Vancouver and Vancouver to ICN. I was going to take the Alaska Airline to go to Vancouver, but I couldn't board the flight because I didn't have a visa for Cannada. You should notice me if I need the visa or not when I booked this flight. Because of this, I should change the flight which took extra charge. Moreover, I lost my baggage between this situation."
Cons: "Same comment on boarding procedures."
Pros: "We did not have any food on the plane, so I can't rate it. The fruit pack looked like a good choice someone had near me. The price of the food seems cheap compared to how much they charge to eat in the airports"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable for long trips and red eye flights. If I was able or knew better, I would've flown first class."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, from check-in to the flight attendants. Great service."
Cons: "Planes are always cold, but usually (other) airlines provide free blankets and/or pillows. I asked, but there were no blankets. Also, some rows didn't have windows! Not sure if this is for safety reasons, but it was not a Emergency row...Very odd, and when picking seats ahead of time, one wouldn't know! Imagine picking a window seat for the view and only to realize there isn't one."
Pros: "Great customer service and loved the $10 dollar deal with the tablets! Such a great incentive!"

Bad service

Cons: "Cheaper price"
Pros: "It wasn’t"
Cons: "Why are you selling the food now ? It supposed to be included in the price when you purchase the flight, the attendant didn’t want it to give me a pillow or neither a blanket , I’m really disappointed with my experience..."
Pros: "I loved everything abt this experience...from the check in, my one luggage at no charge, the seats were absolutely comfortable and for some reason they felt bigger than any other airline. The crew was professional and friendly...the plain was on time and I believe it arrived about an hr before scheduled."
Cons: "Not one thing...everything was perfect! Will never go on any other airline. Thank you!"

Pros: "Fairly comfortable seats, prompt service"

Cons: "All 3 flights were delayed or oversold! I had to sprint to school connection barely making it and my third flight was oversold so I had to stay at a hotel for 5 hours and return only to do a put it had been delayed another 4 hours! My luggage also did not follow so I have no toiletries or changes of clothes etc. I am tried and hungry and very inconvenienced!! I was hoping for a free plane ticket? This trip was stressful and no idea when my luggage will b found"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold. I had to complain strongly and asked to see the manager. Finally I was able to fly, but after much arguing and stress. Poor experience."
Pros: "Service Departure on time Entertainment"
Cons: "I have no issues"
Pros: "We left early and landed early. Nice staff and attentive. Snacks. (better get rid of the terrible so called barittos-they were awful. Cookies not bad and the snack.

Cons: "Avianca overbooked the plane and failed to notify us in advance. While the agent ultimately found us seats on another flight that worked with our connecting US flight, it took a very long time. We were able to make the "new" flight only because other travelers let us cut to the front of the line. Very upsetting."

Cons: "Late with no information"
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"

Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."

Pros: "Having window seat"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Too many delays from start to finish of the trip

Pros: "It is a no frills airline. Cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "This was an older plane with no upgrades including no Internet and the very small poor quality Monitors in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. The seats were very uncomfortable. The transfer in Vancouver after customs involved going outside in the cold to and from the bus. There was no warning. The customs area red jacketed help personnel told us that it was just as fast to go throught the general customs are instead of using our Nexus cards and this turned out to take forever. So very disappointing."
Cons: "Better communication at all levels. Remember that the overall strength of a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and this trip had many weak links for us making it a challenge."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "Crew was great . Seats not so much,"
Cons: "Maybe a movie for everyone."
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable because of the head rest that is attached to the seat. However the staff and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Crowded"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Hard landing,cramped seats"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was the first time in 37 years that I have flown so i had a little motion sickness but that has nothing to do with your crew or airline. This experience was very good thank you"
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost 4 hours, which we got notified over 12 hours prior departure time. Offer different flight options, or maybe switching the airline without an extra fee. Compensation!"
Pros: "Seats comfy, crew excellent"
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seat was ok. A little cramped."
Cons: "Super slow boarding and entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then at the gate boarding didn’t start till 10 mins before take off. Took off almost an hour after the delayed take off time."
Pros: "This is a no frills flight that does not offer food or entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are always uncomfortable as it is a smallplane"
Pros: "Check in was quick and easy. Boarding and flight was right on time!"
Pros: "I had an unexpected upgrading to a premium seat, that was great for food, wine, & comfort."
Cons: "It was cold, I wish they offered blankets. We also had a delay once we landed, watched another plane come in & disembark while we waited. And there was a huge luggage delay of 45 minutes while we all waited at the carousel for our bags. I’ve never had to wait that long before."
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was orderly, I got a window seat."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable (very little leg and arm room, chairs didn't recline at all), WiFi was unavailable."
Pros: "Great service when checking in. Flight on time and comfortable."
Pros: "I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong. They said it will board at x hour and flight Mie is 4 hrs 20minutes. That makes one think departure plus flight time equals arrival. NO ONE MENTIONED OVE 1 hour taxi time. Getting in four hours late, BTW the rain delay was not really accurate. There was no rain until after we were due to depart! Not enough fuel as loaded so after circling the had to land inYYZ ZTO REFUEL. Seats were uncomfortable, with hard spots like springs that did not give.I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong.

Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."
Pros: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Pros: "Fairly smooth itinerary. Clean plane and friendly workers. Cramped seats, no entertainment system, three pretzel snack and not enough overhead space with everyone trying to cram too many personal items onboard makes for a frustrating experience. Not enough competition amongst Canadian operators. Expensive flight for such a short trip yet still a nickel and dime operation. Hopefully service will improve."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Cons: "Long"
Cons: "No headsets Ran out of several of the food items -- I was in row 10 and they served from the front.... A bit disorganized boarding process but it was Mexico ... Comfort? The seats are way too crowded, and the guy in front of me put his seat all the way back so it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Very bumpy ride, wished it was cancelled. I was motion sick the entire ride, and no water was provided until four hours in, and while I understand it was due to turbulence, perhaps if it is too bumpy to serve water for the first four hours we should not be flying at all. Also very little food is provided for a 5.5 hour trip, two biscuits is not sufficient and as we landed near midnight there are not many options to acquire quick food either."
Pros: "The flight and the seating was comfortable. Food served was fine too."
Cons: "Well, they mixed up my check-in luggage during transit. As a result it got delayed and I had to spend the night without it. Although, I was informed about this miss when I landed in Vancouver, the team did not seem to feel particularly bad about it. Also, the process of getting reimbursed for the predefined expenditure allowance needs to be more efficient. Ideally, in such cases, the airlines should not only refund the check-in fee, but also provide a prepaid card to make any urgent purchases. Their current process requires one to bear the expenses initially, scan/click and send the original receipts and await a response from their baggage team. I am waiting to hear back from them on my submission."
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: "I liked the stewardess. She was very friendly and funny. I was booked for row 2 isle seat, first on first off.. No one else with me , had the row to myself. Comfortable seats. It was the Plus seats."
Cons: "No entertainment on board. You had to have already down loaded West Jets app. Didn't know that. Last time I flew WJ there was intertanment. I asked before I left Canada if there was in flight duty free. From LAX to YVR. I was told yes. So didn't purchase any. Only to find out, a big fat no. Haven't for quit awhile.Super. Landed at YVR, went to WJ to find out about luggage. Told me I have to get a hold of Qantas. They had nothing to do with it. Went to Qantas was sent to a place that was closed. Two days later got a call from WJ asking why I didn't pick up my luggage. I told him the story. He kept saying why didn't I go to them. Because I was told it was Qantases fault. Got luggage 2 days later, damaged. I'm thinking maybe the case fell off the conveyor belt while loading in Melbourne ."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Everything mostly went smoothly."
Cons: "Cannot use the in-flight entertainment system due to not having the WestJet app. Not able to download the app in flight. WestJet should at least provide a $0.99 internet option for 5 minutes, or allow free internet access to the App store for a few minutes to download the WestJet app."
Pros: "We took off, we flew, we landed and walked away."
Cons: "5hrs and 9min flight time. Add boarding and alighting at the other end - adds up to over 6 hours travel time. WestJet will supply you with a coffee or tea and a cookie, pretzel or cheese stick packet. Wow! You get to watch fair selection of movies etc on your own phone or tablet - IF you have downloaded the app BEFORE you leave the terminal.Wow! If you need to wait for the bathroom the stewardess tells you to wait in the aisle behind row 3... really? So I can't just stand here in the galley and wait... no sir, behind row 3. Best advice - fly Air Canada - these guys do not deserve your money!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The pilot on the Honolulu flight to Vancouver left some documents at the hotel and he had to go back to get them therefore delaying our flight to vancouver. This caused a lot of passengers connection flights delayed and rebooked to another flight later on that day. No apologies or compensation of time wasted was given. Food vouchers would have been nice. The new boarding passes provided also pushed most of us passengers back to the last seats at the back of the plane.. which was a very uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding"
Cons: "No tv screen"
Pros: "Good flight, got in early"
Cons: "Ticketing in Kauai was extremely slow. Was worried some psssenegers wouldn’t make it into the flight from how slow it was."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Friendly relaxed crew. Overall organized and efficient."
Cons: "Both flights were late"
Pros: "Haven't flown Westjet in years. Don't know why but I don't have sore kneecaps, was served great coffee, the stewards always smiled and had funny things to say, and the gate keepers were happy and honest. I'm going to be a frequent flyer now for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like....um....nope. no complaints"
Cons: "Staff was impatient and snappy when telling passengers to do something the first time. Smiles were forced and didn't seem genuine. Otherwise the flight arrived safely and early."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Cons: "I'm a bit disappointed by the services provided by Westjet: 1) I never received the confirmation of my fight/booking from Westjet; 2) I was not aware that the connecting from LA to SJ and SJ to LA were operated by different companies therefore I was not able to check in or even to check the gate information at the airport. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA in the early morning 3) at the SJ airport, I was not aware that the flight from SJ to LA was operated by Delta not American airline. However, the Westjet customer services 1-888 number listed in your Kayak confirmation was not a correct number. I even tried to look up another customer services number of Westjet by searching the Westjet website, the number I found was not in service neither. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA 4) At the LA airport I was told that I was not able to board the flight because I did not have the Canadian ETA. they said they would pull my checked luggages and flight them with my re-scheduled flight and will be shipped to the final destination Vancouver, Canada. when I arrived Vancouver, both suitcases were not arrived with my flight. One arrived with my original flight and the second were missing. The agent could not even tell me where the suitcase was. Moreover, the second did not arrive the time I was told it should arrive. My second suitcase was not allocated even before I left Vancouver to Europe one day after my travel. 5) No one responded to the luggage services number provided in the document. I could only successfully login to the link for the checking the status after I returned home in Brussels. 6) I was told that the second suitcase will be delivered to my home in Europe by another company. Currently I'm still waiting for my second suitcase."
Pros: "Direct flight from my hometown of Palm Springs Ca to Vancouver Canada"
Cons: "Left late and I arrived 35 min late had to go through customs and didn't make it from international to domestic. Rebooked a flight 3 hours later for $75."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Pros: "Amazing crew who made us feel very comfortable as we traveled with our 9month old daughter. Westjet stands out because of their commitment to service"
Pros: "Nobody bugged me"
Cons: "I like attention"
Pros: "Comfy seats onboard Good selection of movies Decent food from MEX to SFO"
Cons: "I purchased ticket stating business class for both legs, but the first leg of my trip did not have a business class cabin at all. I did not get what i paid for!!!! My seat back IFE did not work at all. Boarding experience was terrible and took forever. The lounge MEX was overcrowded with non-functioning wifi"
Cons: "My baggage got destroyed and they did not wanted to refund it. (I am not sure if it was the correct flight). I submitted a claim but thet rejected it."
Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "Na"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing at all, we were left in Mexico with an under 2 years old boy. Reason, apparently we were late but we were not and simply Aeromexico probably oversold tickets and put others in our seats"
Cons: "To resolve our problem. Supervisor was so disrespectful and treated us so badly we had to get ao mad at them so we could get at least a hotel to spend 17 hours until our next flight which they wanted to provide"
Pros: "The ove"
Cons: "Entertainment selection was mediocre."
Cons: "Flight delayed. They were moving us from door to door. My connecting flight was delayed too. The flight was supposed to leave at 1am when ended up leaving and hour past that plus a lot of children were traveling in that flight and I don’t think it was okay to be moving all these families around from door to door. It was 2am this children needed to be sleeping on Thebes plane that was supposed to leave at 1am. Really disappointed."
Pros: "Everything' was great on this flight... on time, pleasant crew, tasty snacks and drinks, great onboard entertainment!!"
Cons: "Seats are tight.. space with three adults shoulder to shoulder is uncomfortable...and leg space between seat in front of me and my seat makes it difficult to reach my bag under the sear in front. Aisles are also mighty tight.... Honestly when I waa boarding the flight one of the thoughts I had was how in the heck would people shuttle out of the plane if an emergency landing was necessary."
Cons: "missing luggage for 2 days now. not Good!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."
Pros: "The cabin was kept quiet, dark and orderly for the night flight."
Cons: "Same as above. The seat in economy is truly an endurance test. No way to go to sleep."
Pros: "Ease in ticketing."
Cons: "The hardest part was the long layover. I didn’t dress warmly enough, so I had to keep moving!"
Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."
Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."
Pros: "COmfortable seats and great staff. Food was the most bland that I have experience on Aeromexico but they all can't be home runs."
Cons: "Entertainment system had malfunction and was down for half the flight. Leaving me halfway through a film (pet peeve)."
Pros: "Love the comfort and room of the seats. A plus to have charger station in your seat"
Cons: "Staff not so friendly. Not giving us enough attention"
Pros: "Was all good even saw a couple get in the toilet for the mile high club!"
Pros: "Flight had no major inconveniences or mishaps."
Cons: "Paid $150 more for AM Plus. Not worth it."
Pros: "Mileage was credited to my account of SKY TEAM immediately. Many movies are available."
Cons: "The shelf between two seats were not clean. I asked a young steward to clean the shelf. He cleaned it later."
Pros: "Good hot meal"
Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"
Pros: "Fast boarding, decent seat space (AM+), fast, courteous staff"
Cons: "I paid $14USD for internet assuming the USB charging ports worked, only to find that they did not, getting only 15 minutes of my 6 hour flight!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad service!"
Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
Pros: "Overall planes were ontime Staff pleasant. Tv entertainment was certainly adequate"
Cons: "Food was terrible Both trips a bun with mystery meat and cheese And a pudding on the side My last overnight trip my seat didn’t recline making sleeping almost impossible"
Cons: "The crew was very rude, since the counter not helpful at all. The boarding was late."
Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."
Cons: "Delayed hours, both on my flight to Managua and from Managua. Going through customs and having to pick up your luggage and the go back through security is annoying. What do they think has changed since the last security check? The seats are small if you have long legs. The food is not good, but I guess what airline's is?"
Pros: "It wasnt crowded, staff was always available, and made it on time !"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, lots of movies and kids shows to choose from on the plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connecting flights, very little communication about delays etc. Terrible turbulence for 3 hours, food was not good at all. Don’t eat breakfast"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The screen at my seat did not work. Nobody told me why or mentioned it to me. While I was sleeping a flight attendant took away my tray of food before I was finishing eating."
Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"
Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."
Cons: "Stated "free wifi" on plane by the door entrance. But once seated and trying to log in. You have to pay. So it is not "free" In my opinion that sigh is false advertising."
Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."
Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."
Pros: "Help from attendants"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Good legroom"
Cons: "The fly was delayed for more then 30 minutes with no explanation,I paid for the Saturday rate and end flying on Sunday what I thing is not fear . Why I have to pay more? About the food we didn't receive a meal ,they give us only some peanut and cup of water since I am a diabetic person I need to eat frequently,"
Pros: "Crew members are ok"
Cons: "Poor management"
Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."
Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"
Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Everything was great other than it would've been nice if they had cut me some slack on the new flight i needed after i missed mine (my fault)"
Cons: "Old plane slow crew. Seemed like they never were around j. Business class"
