Travelled in premium so my experience does not necessarily apply to economy....

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Food."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great job overall."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "It booked the wrong date and I had to repurchase the ticket. So all the savings were lost plus a ton more. Last time I use this service."
Cons: "The date and flight I picked were the right ones. I’m sure it was my own fault so it is what it is. I’ll just book through the airlines directly and pay the extra money and ensure the flight is the day I picked."
Cons: "The flight was full and my carry-on had to be checked due to other passengers bringing oversized carry-on. The beverage service did not occur until 10 minutes before landing. Options were limited to water only. The flight was extremely rough and the pilot slammed the plane on landing."
Pros: "Super helpful gate agents and smooth entry process back into the country."
Cons: "Crew on plane weren’t great. The male attendant wasn’t very understanding when a little girl had to use bathroom before we even left the gate. One of the women attendants ended up letting her go while taxing. Clearly the guy doesn’t understand kids. We could have ended up with a plane smelling like"
Pros: "friendly crew, free snack"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin"
Cons: "Westjet seating is tight"
Cons: "was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "Because of the discounted fare I was placed in rear seating at the very back of the plane and to change seats was to cost me $14"
Pros: "counter staff were friendly, courteous. helpful. Flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "prop- jet was loud & bumpy while on the ground at takeoff"
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."
Pros: "Excellent crew and customer service"
Cons: "The flight was 40 minutes late and boarding took 40 minutes."
Pros: "Not crowded. Nobody was beside me. USB power. Found space for my carry-on. What more can one ask?"
Cons: "For long flights, these seats are OK at best. Always come off with a stiff back. (What can you do about aging?)"
Pros: "We left on time and arrived on time! That's all I really ask!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was fine."
Pros: "We left late and after a six and a half hour flight with a 5 hour layover we were not impressed. The plane was a Boeing 737-600 and the rows were close together. The first plane was a Boeing 37-800 with a lot more legroom. WestJet should take these things into consideration when scheduling their flights."
Cons: "Didn't like leaving late, I don't care the reason. Rows close together."
Cons: "I’ve been at the airport since 9am, it’s almost 9pm now."
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "A little cold"
Pros: "No hassle boarding and smooth flight. Courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Wifi capability to watch movies was weak. I in fact paid for wifi on the way to Canada on June 28, but was not able to use the wifi at all. It could have been my laptops browser issue. All and all, great flight."
Pros: "Not a bad flight no incidences"
Cons: "Limited seating at the gate, restaurant backs up to the gate, flight was 40 minutes late. Seemed to be disorganized boarding."
Pros: "getting to Vancouver in short time."
Cons: "No movi"
Pros: "West Jet just runs a relaxed yet professional airline. They are just more laid back and accommodating. You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger. I really can’t complain....I had an entire row to myself....the best you can hope for, when riding on a plain for hours that’s like winning the lottery!"
Cons: "No complaints for sure"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, and despite us boarding late, we still made it to our destination on time."
Pros: "crew was exceptional"
Pros: "Short flight at a great price!"
Cons: "If you are not a US citizen, you must apply for an Eta. Canada charges $7 for citizens to enter the country. Did not know we needed this and had to apply online right before boarding our flight."
Pros: "Got a window seat Good deal on price from kayak"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hrs Lost my luggage and no word on when it will be returned Never told us about why delayed"
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."
Pros: "Had an empty seat next to me, the extra space made the flight one of the most comfortable I've ever been on"
Cons: "I checked into my flight 24 hours in advance, got my boarding pass and everything. 12 hours before, I double check the boarding time and my flight has been cancelled. I got no notification of this, luckily I happened to check on my own."
Cons: "Flight was late and kept getting later as the day wore on. Nobody seemed to know how late we were ultimately going to be and why. Missed my meeting."
Pros: "It was on time and short"
Pros: "I loved how the crew was so helpful."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "Friendliest crew, good entertainment system. Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Desperately need a lounge facility in terminal 5 Chicago"
Pros: "No food and no entertainment so can't offer a rating. As for the rest, efficient and well organized and comfortable seats with really decent leg room. I'll be looking o fly WestJet more often.i"
Cons: "I would have liked TV privileges. Had a window seat and the overhead light wasn't the best for reading."
Cons: "Not their fault but the flight was delayed leaving over an hour late. Delay was longer than flight."
Cons: "Good airlines"
Pros: "Efficient, friendly and excellent service. Very enjoyable flight, as per usual :) Keep up the great work!"
Cons: "It's too often people complain. We arrived safely and recieved excellent service. So no complaints"
Pros: "It was a little bit delayed but after the airplane arrived everything was very fast."
Cons: "I don't have any problem about the west jet, I know that some delays is complete normal because the weather or air traffic."
Cons: "Same comment as the previous flight ref movies. I wont take Westjet again on a long flight without movie screens. Not all old people have Iphones or laptop computers. Mike C."
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Cons: "One can get free beer or wine but no tomato juice?"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min due to a broken gate. Had to tow the plane to a new gate."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The gate in LGW was one of the farthest in the aiport. The flight ia 8.5 hours and the ticket is not cheap. But you have to pay for everything. Even onvboard entertainment. The only free thing is the soft drinks and that is even rationed. I flew with worst airline and for long flight they at least give a free meal."
Cons: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Good flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed I had to wait for more than an hour"
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "We had a very good experience with Air canada and will use Air Canada again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delay led us to miss our connecting flight. Air Canada then lost our luggage for 6 days on our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Very short flight, not much to say"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice causing us to miss our connecting flight to Copenhagen. Air Canada then put us on a flight to London and then connecting to Copenhagen we arrived at 4 PM instead of 10AM ."
Cons: "They airline cancelled our return flight and booked us on another flight more than 2 hours later. We had an event to attend that night so we asked if they could book us on United so we wouldn't miss it. The agent outright lied and said there were no other United flights before then. As we were waiting for our flight, we heard the agents call the final call for a flight to Chicago. Truly disgusted with Air Canada - will never fly them again!"
Cons: "The seats are large, but they tilt forward. I'm 6'2" and have anxiety issues related to spinal problems. That forward pitch in the seat (half way up the seat) is an painful problem for people like me."
Cons: "Departure was late, causing me to have to run to the next gate"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "I thought Comcast service was bad. This was the worst. They cancelled my flight at the last minute, then escorted all passengers out of the gate, told us to go through customs then pick up our luggage. And said we had to call to arrange another flight, but the phones just left a message saying to call back in a few days. I was stranded with no phone, no hotel, and no flight home. Three days later, I still cannot get in touch with them."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "One kind guy at air Canada in Toronto who was very helpful considering the lack of help from every one else. Arrived at 2 in morning exhausted."
Cons: "Attitude of staff"
Pros: "The pilot seemed good and the staff on the plane were nice overall"
Cons: "Customer service from the group staff that checked us in was horrendous... (Lisa from Chicago ). We were not aware one of us needed eTA to fly through Canada and the agent was so belittling, rude and plane wrong with her information, that if it had not for our smarts, we might have not made it to our destination. I do not spend so much money to fly with an airline, whose agents treat it me like this! She really should be fired for her terrible manners and for giving customers wrong information..the second supervisor we talked to helped us, but the impression we got from the agent was so terrible, that it was hard to feel any good...no food on a flight during lunch hour, seems unfitting."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed by 3 hours, causing me to miss my connecting flight. Instead of arriving at 9:30 at my final destination I arrived at 1:30 am. Exhausted."
Pros: "I am sad to say I have little positive things to say about this experience."
Cons: "To begin, our flight was delayed an hour into Toronto. We asked the flight attendant about our connecting flight and they said they would find an answer. It ended up that we landed just as the flight was scheduled to leave. Why they could delay pur flight but would not hold another flight by 20 minutes is very questionable. Then we got to customer service, the rep told us that we could only get on the next flight going out tomorrow at the same time which meant 24 hours lost. Of our vacation- which hotels already booked and tours already booked. When I asked if there was anyway we could get in earlier the service person told me "I should be grateful because some people have had to wait multiple days to get to their destinations." When we finally did board the flight the next day we were not served any food, no snacks, and no drink for the entire overnight flight."
Cons: "There was a 90min delay on all flights going to toronto due to construction in toronto yet air canada (knowing this) boarded everyone on time anyway and made us sit on the runway for over an hour. They could have left us in the lounge until they were ready. Parents with babies do not appreciate such thoughtlessness. But hey, as far as air canada was concerned, they left the gate on time."
Pros: "In the airport Chicago to Montreal I met a nice person he made my boarding pass to me. I love the service !!!!!! Said Thank you so much for your time to getting. Dory Clothilde"
Pros: "I liked that we got a lot of food, and the movies were very good. Groups for boarding made sense and we boarded quickly"
Cons: "it was late and despite being 4.5 hours there were no free snacks or food. Only one toilet which we could never use bc of constant turbulence."
Pros: "Poor airline, always delayed, dreadful and unfriendly customer service. The only reason I flew with them this short trip was due to price"
Cons: "We were in Toronto for an entire week without our bag and Air Canada showed no concern at all for our well being. I travelled with my one year old son, I needed supplies for him and Air Canada gave me dead end numbers to call, websites that didn't work and even hung up on us when we were trying to find out about our bags. They treated us terribly. I will never fly them again."
Pros: "When there were unforseen delays. They just said too bad, here is a phone number you can call. It then took 2 hours to try and get someone on the phone. Once I finally was talking with someone, they said it would cost $200 to rectify the problem. I then got put on hold. When they came back they said it would be over $2000 to get home. Talk about trying to cash is on people's hard situations. I ended up flying WestJet. They were amazing."
Cons: "My flight was changed and I wasn't informed - I cleerly checked my information beforehand but it would be nice if flights were to change by two hours, to know in advance so arrangements could be made"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was late from Barcelona to Mintreal by an hour. I needed a wheelchair - didn't show up! Then pulled a muscle trying to get through customs and they barely held my flight to Chicago. Made it, with No Help. Late into Chicago and still no wheelchair. There was no one from whom to get help. Finally a United Airlines employee took pity on me and got a wheelchair to me and got me to the flight - again, just barely. Over 20 hours in the air, no assistance and poor food. I will never fly air canada again - ever. Not worth the savings. I've spent an entire week recovering and spent the savings on physical therapy due to the damage to my legs."
Cons: "horrible"
Pros: "short trip"
Cons: "delayed but didn't update the screen as delayed even though it was delayed an hour it still said on time."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "The head phone slot did not work. Then the TVs went out which did not matter because I could not listen to them anyway."
Pros: "When I had to reschedule they were very nice about making sure that I had the information I needed and they gave me great seats on the way to London."
Cons: "My flight was Delayed and I had to reschedule that was unfortunate."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Great Pilots The pilots were great! The weather was not optimal, but they did a great job of making us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Better Quality Food Needed The salted plate served was sub-standard. Also, it was full of salt and poses health risk for many people. In the past, better food was served including a pot pie. Also, the staff should be more aware of the wines to be served. And there is not enough attention paid to service in the executive cabin as the attendant runs back and forth between both cabins."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The plane boarded early and the food was not good. The pasta was over cooked and essentially a mash."
Pros: "Everyone I came in contact with was amazing and super helpful!"
Pros: "Nothing to like about this airline. Horrible people especially in toronto, really unhelpful, extremely rude."
Cons: "Air line decided they didn't want me to take my connecting flight. Removed my luggage without consulting with me. Offered me a disgusting hotel. Forced me to pay out of pocket for food, taxis, transfers and my own hotel choice. Staff were so rude. No explanation to why they removed my bags. I made it in plenty of time for my connecting flight but airline had just decided. No staff member was interested in answering my questions or helping. They all just wanted to sod off home. they just didn't care."
Pros: "The plane was new and pretty clean"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Crew was useless. No organization."
Cons: "The departure time for the flight was 6:00am and there was no one in the check in counter until 4:15am. There was a long queue for the check in. Not a pleasant waiting time for the check in"
Pros: "Must bring your own electronic device"
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was Frigid, even with blanket, 2 pairs of socks my coat & scarf I was freezing!"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Left late so missed connection. Was put up in a mediocre hotel."
Cons: "Deplaning and entering the terminal was delayed substantially."
Pros: "This is awful flight coz I brought it from kayak"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to plane defect. Stayed in plane for more than 5 hours. Baggage lost. Never made it on time"
Cons: "No free alcohol. Lights didn't turn off ever so I could get some sleep."
Pros: "the crew was great, food was alright, and overall I enjoyed my flight"
Cons: "the only entertainment was able to connect to apple products or a renatble iPad. I don't have an apple product so that was a bit annoying"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was nice, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "Our first Air Canada flight was 2hr delayed due to mechanical error. After a 2hr delay, we finally flew for 1hr, had awful turbulence on the way down, and got to Toronto only to find out there was no customer service desk. We missed our connection with Luftanza and had to fly Air Canada again. First off, we couldn't get on another flight until the next morning. Then the desk never called the hotel they gave us the voucher for, so when we showed up at midnight the hotel was fully booked and had no room for us. We had to fly into Heathrow instead of Gatwick (final destination was Brighton for an international conference). We missed the entire first day of the meeting and had to rent a car for 65 pounds each to take us to Brighton from Heathrow, finally arriving at our hotel by midnight. The customer service was non-existent for Air Canada. We literally are going to have to email them."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. Entertainment choices were varied and generous."
Cons: "o'Hare needs an upgrade."
Pros: "How quick it waz"
Cons: "How close the seats were"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Very smooth flight. Easy to navigate terminal."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew was good!"
Cons: "I wished that there were opportunities given for beverages. I also would have liked more explanations on how to connect to the entertainment."
Pros: "I like having the trip map in front of me so I can track progress. Usually I don't get it on flights this short."
