Airline reviews

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: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More room"

Pros: "I did like the space between the seats, it felt roomier than other airlines. and the seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "I was never able to connect to the inflight movies on the flight even after downloading the app and following all the instructions. That was pretty frustrating."

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: "Seats were comfortable and did not feel confining. Takeoff and landing were very smooth."
Cons: "Having a male flight attendant wearing makeup was off-putting. A gluten free option for snacks would be nice."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was good on time it was good ."

Pros: "The crew staff was nice"
Cons: "First off they were late then when it's time to board they change the gate on us and we had to go across the airport to get to the next gate. Then flight was fine when we landed the flight was smooth. Then we had to wait for another 30 minutes to actually get off the airplane. Not happy at all."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "Efficiency"

Pros: "I specifically book with Alaska Airlines bc in all my flights I have never had bad service. Delta, Continental, not so much. The crew was great. We hit quite a bit of turbulence but everyone was calm and the pilot sounded in control so no problem."
Cons: "Tons of empty seats but airfare was still on the high side"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "No drink service - not even water."

Pros: "The service, The Flight attendant was sooo nice. The food was great and the seats were comfortable. The time flew by."

Pros: "I love the biscoff cookies. Smaller plane. I had legroom though!! Business as usual. Good flight decent take off and landing."
Cons: "You need a n/a choice. Bags were a little late. Seatac has a terrible congestion problem at curbside pickup Seat did not recline. Really full flight. Not Alaska’s fault that people get a little cranky."

Cons: "seats were a bit narrow and lacking legroom. Alaska airlines charging extra for more legroom? Seriously? Alaska airlines also charges for a meal? Alaska airlines charges for bags too? Seriously? Just nickel and dime the poor customer to death here. What entertainment? Alaska airlines wanted to charge for entertainment also. give it a break."

Pros: "Arrived on time and in one piece"

Cons: "none"

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"

Cons: "There was a dog sitting next to me...or should I say half on his owners seat and half on MY seat! Why??? I don't understand why pets need to be in the cabin. There was also a dog across the isle who cried the whole way off and on. Why is it necessary for pets to ride in the same cabin as their humans?? It was a very stressful trip!!"

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."

Cons: "Chargers didn't work on either flight"

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."

Cons: "After arriving at the santa rosa airport, an airport smaller than most bus stations, I tried to print my boarding pass at the kiosk, it told me to go the Alaska desk for assistance, easy enough considering theres only 1 desk in the entire airport, however there were no Alaska employees there. I waited, and waited, and started to panic as the flight time approached but knew the plane was literally 10 steps away so I did my best to remain calm. I tried to enter when people started to board, but despite my confirmation number, receipt for my flight and 2 forms of photo ID, the security team informed me that I must get a boarding pass from the non existent Alaska air employees. After waiting for 45 minutes and watching my plain board and fly away, an employee finally showed up and did his best to help me, but also told me its normal for Alaska to leave their assistance desk unmanned, and I should have used the kiosk... Which didn't work. After putting me on a bus to SF airport and assuring me they have a flight waiting for me with united. I was surprised to discover they actually shipped me to an airport 2 hours south, with no ticket waiting for me. After a 24 hour ordeal I finally made it to my destination, and all I was offered for their horrible customer service and "forgetting" to confirm the flight they claimed was waiting for me, was a 24$ food voucher!!!! Wow, a full day late for my cousins wedding, but I got a food voucher! I'm shocked and appalled at their lack of professionalism and will NEVER fly with Alaska again"

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: "Pleasant, happy, and gracious flight attendants. Informative geography highlights from the flight deck."

Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The turbulence"

Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."

Pros: "The fact that there is air service is great for someone who has disabilities. It is a shame you have to rely on assistance of train or coach staff that may be or not be there!"
Cons: "Due to so few fly it is expensive"

Cons: "Was placed on Stand by until the very end and everyone else had boarded. Kids (ages 9 and 4) were all separated from us and each other. Tix bought 6 months in advance, no excuses. Best they could they could do was get me on and next to the 4 year. Dad and 9 year old separated. Get on the he flight and the wifi is down so no on fl Got entertainment. Just really bad all the way around."

Pros: "Early take-off, friendly staff"
Cons: "everything was cool"

Pros: "They were kind, considerate and friendly."

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"

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."

Pros: "Love that my bag was check through to NAN and didn't have to offload in LAX."

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."

Pros: "Everything went on schedule once we were checked in. Great flight and curious crew."
Cons: "My experience with the two women checking in was not enjoyable. They were very short and curt and cranky. Why?"

Cons: "Same comment on boarding procedures."

Pros: "Boarding was simple."
Cons: "Seat was trash."

Pros: "The entertainer system was down all of the flight, could not charge my phone. Crew was polite but Curt."

Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"

Pros: "Very kind associate working at the gate. She helped me obtain my seat assignment and was a pleasure to speak with. Her happiness was contagious (even at 6am!). She put me at ease."
Cons: "The last travelers in boarding line (including myself) had to check their carry on luggage because “there was no more room in the overhead compartments”. However, while I was walking to my seat, I saw ample storage space as well as suitcases that were laying horizontally or flat and could easily have been adjusted to create even more space. Given that most people pack their most valuable items in their carry on bags (as well as anything fragile), I was a bit uneasy checking mine. The associate who helped check my bag on the tarmac was kind. I was grateful that my luggage had a hard shell case."

Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"

Pros: "Everything except the delay was fine, not extraordinary."
Cons: "7-hour flight delay. If this was a European flight we would have been entitled to at least $250 for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything to compensate us for a 7hour delay, which was ridiculous."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "13 hour delay"

Pros: "Good service great aircraft"

Pros: "Delta - best airline"
Cons: "Airbus - entertainment systems never work."

Pros: "Very attractive staff in flight"

Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "They changed my departure hours three times"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Pros: "Anna from South Africa was funny, and super accomidatinf"

Pros: "I was rerouted."

Pros: "On time with early arrival"
Cons: "Small plane Little communication from crew Security took forever to get through at RC airport"

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 minutes"

Pros: "The comfort and attention on the part of the cabin crew of the flight was quite good."
Cons: "What I did not like was the process to go to the assigned air terminal in El Salvador, the process was slow and we took the flight at the end of the last one. The same was the process from Los Angeles to Seattle that was our scale. Process too long and go back through security, the boarding gate was almost closed. I think that for these cases they should leave more time for the stopovers that come from international flights. For my part I did not choose this option, since I was traveling with a person with mobility problems and separated the group for admission to the process of entering the USA."

Pros: "The plane was really nice, food was good. I had a pleasant time."

Pros: "The flight attendant in Delta Comfort/Main Cabin was very nice and made for an excellent trip. Smooth ride and on time. I like that!"

Pros: "No complaints. A puddle-hopper to a yes."

Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"

Pros: "All that one would want."

Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"
Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."

Cons: "I liked it all"

Cons: "That we weren't automatically transferred to the next available flight to Burbank."

Pros: "Very nice do to Delta employees."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."

Pros: "on time. great flight attendnant"

Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."

Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."

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: "Flight was very smooth, and crew would actually smile. Coach Sears very cramp."
Cons: "Poor intercom. Could not hear pilot's announcements. Gate staff not very friendly. Sears assigned while boarding...didn't know until then if my wife and I would sit together."

Pros: "Copa provided us with food vouchers while plane was delayed."
Cons: "Plane delayed for about 5 hours due to wheather and and a lot of time spent by the crew trying to fit multiple and large carry-ons in the cabin."

Pros: "No delays, quick flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "They could have better snacks."

Cons: "It didnt have enough entertainment it needs more options pf movies I didn't like I couldn't seat with my grandchild we were separated"

Pros: "My luggage got lost with my medication in it. I am diabetic type 2"
Cons: "The airline staff has ZERO customer service skills. They treated me very poorly every time I asked them about my luggage. I have NEVER been treated this way while traveling -taking into consideration that I travel for work-"

Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."

Cons: ". The tem let me wait for ever in something I wanted to ask as a favor they said wait a second and never come back to ask what did I need."

Cons: "Flying Exonomy on such a long flight"

Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."

Pros: "Crew was very supportive. My son went to eat , but distance to food court was very far. It took him a long time to order , and almost missed our flight."

Cons: "flying from Medellin to Orlando, it will take in a direct fly 4 hours max. It took us 9 hours to get to Orlando. The waiting time in Panama was to long (4 hours, more than what it will take the whole fly if it was direct). When we land i took forever (25 min) to reach the point where we can get off from the airplane. Then it took 1 and half hour to get our suitcases."

Cons: "Too small airplane, there was no entertainment, and the breakfast was bad"

Cons: "The space for the legroom was to tight. I had to stand up several times to stretch my legs, they were getting cramps. I'm only 5'8"."

Pros: "Good food"

Pros: "Nothing in special"
Cons: "Even though I checked in online, had to go through a very bureaucratic process to check in the bags, reallybad process, lack of design thinking!"

Pros: "Attendants were polite and helpful food was good"

Pros: "The crew is very nice. The flights were on time. Direct flights from Panama to Brasilia- Brazil. There was enough room for carry ons. Free alcooholic drinks."
Cons: "The airport crew spoke Spanish to me, even after seeing my Brazilian passport. I understand Spanish, but their gate and check-in crew should be trained to speak English to avoid confusion with non Spanish speaking passengers. The seats are hard and I never got a pillow. One movie option and long time with nothing playing on tv."

Cons: "One hour ddelay no piñots"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "El abordaje"

Pros: "The boarding process was efficient. The food was warm."
Cons: "-I didn't received a web check access email. -my bag is currently missing, I was frustrated because I wait a long time (over 1 hour) to get a claim form completed."

Pros: "El vuelo salio a tiempo La tripulacion es muy amable"
Cons: "mejorar la comida Hacer mas confortables los asientos"

Cons: "No hay comida para vegetarianos"

Pros: "Thank you for allowing instrument , guitar, in cabin. Richard"
Cons: "Food only ok ! Metal forks & spoons great! I think it is better to load the plane from the back foreword ."

Pros: "Good interteiment. U atención good."

Cons: "the only "bad" thing is the little amount allowed in bagagge"

Pros: "It was absolutely horrible customer service. not to mention we arrived with 20 minutes until take off and they still would not let any of us try and catch our flight that was two gates down and very easily obtainable. especially with no checked luggage. I tried to get on an overnight to get me to New Orleans early the nextmorning so i would not miss the festival I already bought tickets for and they would only comp us a new flight with one connection when it was THEIR fault. as we were figuring out new flights, I heard the final boarding call for my flight....it was absolutely terrible. the customer service reps did not have answers for most of our questions. Then when we were leaving to go to hotel the shuttle was a junk show. one of the drivers walked off and was arguing with a copa airlines representative. when he finally came back some peoples bags were mixed in other shuttles and we had to all get out and get on another larger shuttle and put all the luggage on the smaller ones. The only perk was that the hotel was nice for the 9 hours we had there. I am not sure I will ever fly Copa again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Drink service only came twice in 6 hours! Entertainment was broken. Food was overcooked and bland. Attendants were unhelpful. Terrible airline."

Cons: "There's not enough monitors to all the passengers"

Pros: "Food"

Cons: "Boarding at Panama was a mess. Completely disorganized chaos. So bad on the other end there were immigration people screaming at the crew "Copa - help your passengers a little"."

Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "nothing was bad"

Cons: "I didn't like the food... it was either chicken with pasta or meat with rice.. I know there are vegetarian options, but then you never get to eat pasta..."

Pros: "Overall it was good experience. Fast boarding, good in-flight food and beverage selection. The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "For some reason this airline for the Miami flight uses their older aircrafts and being this such a popular route they should consider on using their newer model that have more space, individual entertainment and overall are more comfortable."

Pros: "The food and service was good."
Cons: "I was not impressed with the overall movie selection. More choices would have been good."

Pros: "Normal"
Cons: "Normal"

Pros: "Muy bien"

Pros: "I didn't fly because I needed to extend my stay....I tried to reschedule my flight fot Return in Aug. but it cost more to reschedule that one way flight than I can buy a R/T ticket. for. How is that? You tell me. My initinal flight with Copa from SF to PC was great and I will fly Copa again...."

Cons: "This is the worst plane I have ever flown on. The space between seats is so small I couldn't even sit straight. I am a tall man and thankfully the flight was not full because I was forced to sit sideways the whole time. I will try in the future to never take a copa airlines plane for any amount of time for any trip."

Pros: "Everything ran on time, quick flight considering how far SFO is from Panama City, comfortable seat for sleeping."

Pros: "Flight times and connections were good for me. No long layover"
Cons: "No complaint"

Pros: "Puntuality"

Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Food could be better, but then again, we should have low expectations from all airplane food (regardless of carrier). Boarded about 10-15 minutes late so our take off was about 30 minutes late."

Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "captain must of thought we needed to freeze, extremely cold"

Pros: "boarding"
Cons: "transit"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."

Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"

Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"

Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"

Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."

Pros: "On time, arrived even half an hour early on the way back. Staff in flight and checking in at YVR amazing. Overall, good spacing for knees between rows, staff awesome, flight on time sharp... great experience so far!"
Cons: "Staff at checking in kiosk at LAS wasn't so friendly."

Pros: "Overall everything"

Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."

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."

Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."

Pros: "Pleasant flight food and entertainment no used crew helpful and courteous comfort ... seats too close as always but plenty of bin space due to them asking people to check carry on luggage for free ...great idea"

Pros: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"
Cons: "no vegan options on the plain no tv screens"

Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"

Pros: "Kayak is cool. Westjet is meh."
Cons: "Both departure and return flights delayed by over an hour. All I hear is the same reason over and over again. Figure it out."

Pros: "Staff"

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: "Crew was excellent especially Taylor"

Cons: "This flight is always late to leave and always gate changes. Maybe the time should be permanently changed. I have caught this flight 3 times and each time the same issue"

Pros: "Soft voice of flight attendants with such an early flight."
Cons: "Paying for food. Paying for luggage. Movies in a loop, not on demand. Missed beginnings of all movies I watched."

Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."

Pros: "The flight was great. Especially because the WestJet agents named Kelsea and Sarah who were a pleasure to deal with. They successfully accommodated my request to sit with my new wife! Thank you so much!!"

Pros: "The staff were very kind while still being efficient. It was a pleasant and smooth flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was fast, friendly and over all made me impressed."

Pros: "Smooth, cost effective and friendly staff."

Cons: "The seats are appropriately spaced but still too narrow for anyone with shoulders. Friendly and helpful flight staff."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not so much entertainment like music or movies to watch. Why do you need to download the west jet apps just to get something to watch doesn't make any sense..."

Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."

Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"

Pros: "Everything was shipshape and organized. Every crew membe r we talked with seemed knowledgeable and friendly. Good value."

Pros: "Polite crew"

Cons: "Hour+ delay"

Cons: "You had to have a computer / cell phone to see the movies. In their next fleet of aircraft Westjet should go back to big screens or back of seat screens and have the computer option there as well."

Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."

Cons: "6 hours delay"

Pros: "The flight was pretty good specially during landing"

Pros: "Check-in agent in Kelowna was nice as were gate agents. The seats were fine even though we were in the back of the small plane. Flying in and out of Kelowna brought back memories of flights long ago: no jet ways and prop planes. It was nice they had a ramp rather than stairs."
Cons: "Short flight so only water to drink and pretzels or cookies if desired."

Pros: "On time, smooth and amazing views of snow capped mountains."

Pros: "Great service! Crew was very friendly and happy. Flight was online and landed early"
Cons: "No screen on the back of the chairs"

Cons: "Was too hot"

Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."

Pros: "When I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to AA failure at the gate. The woman at the westjet gate was super friendly and kind to me. She gave me a good seat and meal vouchers to get me through the night. Unlike AA who could not care less."
Cons: "I missed my flight but that not your fault."

Pros: "Crew did their best."
Cons: "Lost time on a short holiday by the delay and by the lost luggage. Shopping took time and cost me money."

Pros: "Got me to Vancouver on time"
Cons: "Economy seating really sucks"

Cons: "Had to follow behind other planes to get our turn to take off. I almost threw up because of the smell of exhaust. And it was a very wobbly take off."

Pros: "Good leg rooms, compared with the airlines, good services."
Cons: "Wifi was down on the way back to Vancouver. It is a first with WestJet for me. But overall was ok."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Food options"

Pros: "staff was nice, plane clean"
Cons: "cheap airlines! They do not feed you on an international flight! You have to buy your seat ahead of time, or get assigned. You have to pay for all your luggage. They do not even give one bag on international flight. You can down load an app for entertainment, or rent their ipads. Many of us said, worst customer care ever, and never again"

Pros: "El avión estaba súper limpio y en excelentes condiciones"

Pros: "US based airlines should take a lesson from AeroMexico - reasonable prices and the services we used to receive without additional charges: snack, food, 1 bag checked without fee, leg room! Thank god I Iive just south of Vancouver and can floy out of there instead of an American airport with greedy American-based airlines."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with my experience"

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."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1he from Guatemala and flight from Mexico was canceled."

Pros: "No"
Cons: "Be on time,safety, and honest"

Cons: "This is Aeroméxico’s B-team from Mexico City to LAX"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food, entertainment"

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 crew was amazing. Made my mom feel welcomed and special."

Pros: "Love the crew. Full meals. And early arrival!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I got home and the price was right."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and my tailbone hurt. The food was bad. I lost my personal earphones, asked flight attendant for plane earphones and he did not bring them. I had to get up, go to the back of the plane and pick them up in person."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the seats very comfortable (we traveled in business class)."
Cons: "We'd like to receive a couple of food options instead of only one. For example this was an early flight and the offered only fruits with yogurt for breakfast when they could've included an omelette or bread with ham & cheese."

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: "I liked the little sandwich and coffee. It’s nice to get food on such a short flight."
Cons: "Hardly any leg room. If the person in front of you reclines their seat, it feels like they are sitting in your lap. No entertainment."

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: "Everything! From check in to boarding it was smooth"
Cons: "Don’t have anything to say I didn’t like it!"

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: "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!"

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"

Pros: "I was able to watch free movies. It was a 4-hour flight and usually, I cannot sleep the whole flight. I definitely loved that I was able to watch a movie at no charge. I made my flight feel a lot shorter than my other flights."

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: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Delay, gate change, reissue of boarding pass. It was confusing. Mostly airport issues, not Aeromexico."

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: "Again, the seating is more than adequate. I discovered a person who couldn't read her ticket stub correctly had taken my seat, but instead of insisting that she move, I asked if I could have an emergency exit row seat and was told "Yes," I could. I had to whole row to myself. Those seats, while as comfortable as the rest, made the screen mounted on the back of the seat ahead of me a little hard to see because of the greater than usual distance between the seats. But there certainly was a lot of legroom!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was an aspect not totally in Aeromexico's control - the disembarkation system and the ugly process of Mexican immigration. The plane was left parked on the tarmac somewhere in nowhere'sville, making a trip to the terminal by bus necessary. The bus waited and waited and waited for a wheelchair to arrive from the main terminal to allow two elderly passengers to be removed from the plane. All in all that process took more than a half-hour (making the two-hour connection time more anxiety producing). Then the bus sat outside the terminal for another 10 minutes with no explanation being provided to the passengers worried about making their connection. To top it off, once the bus doors opened the passengers were ushered into a large hall filled with hundreds of passengers all having to get through Mexican immigration - during lunch hour or something, for there were only six officials actually asking questions and several empty inquiry windows that could have been operational. I finally got to an immigration clerk just 15 minutes before my connecting flight was to take off - breezed through the interview and got the passport stamped, and then had to run to dump the luggage onto another conveyor belt leading I hoped to the connecting flight. An Aeromexico staff person asked me "Seattle?" and when I answered "YES!" was ushered to a waiting electric golf cart that whisked me close to the ramp to Gate 57. Without that additional help I'd never had made the flight. Mexico City is NOT a place to try to do a plane connection in less than 3 hours!"

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."

Pros: "Great service inside the plane"
Cons: "Rude people checking in bags"

Cons: "I didn't like that Aeromexico didn't want to change my flight I had an family emergency and they don't care they just told me they cannot change my flight at all"

Pros: "Plain was comfortable."
Cons: "Food again, just a bar full of sugar!"

Pros: "Help from attendants"
Cons: "Too crowded"

Pros: "i like everything"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly we got through customs quickly in Mexico. I like the fact that they gave us food and drink."

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: "I loved the fact that I never used this airline before and I'm so amazed they were on time and even before schedule, thank you kayak and thank you aeromexico!!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, good overall flight"
Cons: "Please offer a vegetarian food option. Many people would enjoy it. It's healthier, tastes better. Simple veg sandwich or bowl of rice and beans? There are many options for a simple vegetarian meal. Only option to eat is white bread with a piece of processed meat. People take it but many people would love another option"

Pros: "Great customer service and nice flight"
Cons: "It took a while to board"

Cons: "The airplane was really old"

Pros: "The Flight was on Time , good crew , good Food"

Pros: "One team member per airport was halway nice"
Cons: "I called aeromexico 3 times in last month to get special meal. They said they cant over phone. Not over internet. No where. get to my flight without a meal. No voucher even when i said i was allergic. No money for bag of chips. Worse than being mean, they lied and said nothing cN be done. Like it was 1930s wihout a massive food court. Ask them to call ahead to next flight, they said they need 48 h, disregarding what i said about my calls a month before NOR aplologising OR being nice abiut it. Everything was someone else's fault or a 3rd party that had nothing to do with aeromexico. Whats the point of paying for a flight if the airline doesnt care 2 shits about you? ???"

Pros: "The only positive factor about this specific flight was the staff who is very diligent and attentive to everyone."
Cons: "Once we got on the plane, the pilot mentions there is a delay due to the AC not functioning but they are fixing it. We took off and the AC apparently was never fixed because it was out for the whole flight. On top of that there was basically no entertainment on flight. Those two things are basic when flying."

Pros: "My husband's knees were pressed against the seat in front of him so much so as to cause indentations in his legs. fortunately the flight wasn't full and we were able to spread out over 3 seats. It was still quite an uncomfortable flight for him."

Pros: "The entertainment system... Although had my own.. The screen was large and selection was good from what I saw around me."
Cons: "Nothing much. Was full flight but nothing they can do about that"
