Pros: "Crew is always polite and friendly"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin"
Cons: "Westjet seating is tight"

Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "No one would get a wheelchair to get to cart that was on different floor. Driver didn't volunteer to carry bags to cart."
Cons: "Later flight from Toronto delayed multiple times, finally to 2:40 am and then canceled at midnight. Way too late to find an affordable hotel, had to stay at expensive airport hotel instead."
Pros: "We were late getting to YUL because of traffic, and a West Jet employee went above and beyond to make sure we made it on our flight even though we missed the cut-off time."
Pros: "Had seats in row six -- plus there was room for both our carry-ons!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed taking off from Winnipeg 90 minutes with no explanation given. Made us late getting to Saskatoon and missed our daughter's scheduled ride to pick up our two cars as a result. Had to pay an extra two hours parking at airport, etc etc etc."
Pros: "I like everything else except no entertainment"
Cons: "I wish there is TV or newspaper, magazine to read or watch that helps."
Pros: "great on board crew, very friendly and getting the impression the company execs under value them. PAY YOUR STAFF BETTER WESTJET."
Cons: "older equipment often means what you’re accustomed to is missing. specifically, not being able to plug in and charge proved problematic on this flight. in-flight entertainment was the old back-of-seat and did not work until the final minutes of the flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours, missed connectionplus an hour on the tarmac"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and friendly. Enjoyed their jobs. Seats very comfortable didn't arrive stiff and sore."
Pros: "Overall service on the flight."
Cons: "The management of carry on luggage on the flight. It seems that there is no control over the placement of carry on luggage in relation to seat selection. many people entering the aircraft drop of luggage in the bins close to the front of the cabin even when they are sitting at the rear... Simple solution would be to assign luggage based on zone. Zone A to Be Window seat. Zone B to be a centre seat and Zone C to be Aisle seat. Designate a portion of the overhead bin to be A, B and C like the seats. Ensure that baggage is transported to the seat designated."
Pros: "STAFF WAS GREAT"

Pros: "Friendly Staff Flight delayed departing but pilot made up the time ."
Pros: "Not over crowded this time"
Cons: "Liked it better with in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Of the four flights I took with WestJet this holiday, 3 were delayed. The flights were frigid. On this flight the agent at the gate was very rude when I asked about checking my bag, lecturing me about the size of the bag and insisting she would have to charge me if it was a full flight, which she said it wasn’t. It ended up fitting just fine in the overhead. Totally soured my experience. I will not use this airline again."
Pros: "I love this direct flight from Palm Springs to Winnipeg Thank you WestJet"
Pros: "The leg room"
Cons: "They didn’t have wifi so couldn’t watch anything"
Cons: "WestJet needs more checkin machines and shorter security lines. I arrived at the airport with a boarding pass and it took over an hour to get to the gate"
Cons: "Seats were so crammed together. When the person in front mived their headrest back my knees were crushed and I xould not sit comfortably. I am 5'10. Not super tall. Nees more leg room."
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Cons: "If it was noted that there would be luggage fees when I was booking I didn't see it."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. There was no delay in any areas."
Pros: "The flight over all was good. Service, and delivery of the expectations were good. Even though the items listed in the dislike are 3 in number, and added to an uncomfortable experience, some of them are identifiable as beyond control, yet others are within the control of system set up or process."
Cons: "small items that I didn't like were : 1) Temperature, and 2) wifi 3) waiting for electrical. 1) Temperature: When boarding the plane the Temperature of the cabin was extremely warm. The pilot advised of the condition, this was not something that could have been fixed and I think they handled it well. I just didn't like the 90+ temperature 2) Wifi: was intermittent, I ensured the Westjet app was the only one running, but the movie I was watching was pausing every 15 minutes to buffer. So it was a constant reminder of dial up.... 3) waiting for electrical: Upon landing and taxi-ing to the ramp, the pilot was advised that there was no electrical to support the plane after he turned off the engines. So good that he waited, thank you pilot, and not so good as it was another unpleasant item on the plane ride."
Pros: "Clean Plane and pleasant crew."
Cons: "No movies or TV"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight on WestJet."
Cons: "I did not like Kayak, and will not use them again."
Pros: "Price, staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no padding, very hard. At Pearson you have to walk about half an hour to get to West Jet gate."
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"
Pros: "Quickest flight ever."
Pros: "Boarded easily, took off and landed early. What's not to like?"
Cons: "Was offered beverage once, water once. Flight was 4.25 hours long. Would have liked first service to offer snacks besides cookie-- usually ask if you want food for purchase."
Pros: "Great service and flights were on time."
Cons: "The lounge should offer more variety of foods ."
Pros: "Flight was good and on time. I agree with many other comments about legroom as many tall people have trouble with being comfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendents were friendly."
Cons: "The seats weren't comfortable at all which meant i was constantly shifting around in my seat. We were in the emergency exit seats which meant the chairs didn't recline. Not a very comfortable section."
Pros: "Flight was good, crew were courteous."
Cons: "Seat spacing is to tight."
Cons: "Paid for reservation of a particular seat. At check-in was offered my choice of another seat without regard to the fact that I had paid for seat selection. Westjet employee did not honour paid-for selection or offer refund."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. They related well tothe children on board, and they made the safety presentation into a comedy show. They were awesome and all seemed to get along really well"
This was an excellent flight with very few people on board. Only issue was the 30 minute departure delay and this was communicated well so we weren't left hanging. Traveler communications in Cancun airport aren't the best, but that isn't AC's fault.
Cons: "Air Canada is by far the worst airline ever! Lost our connection flight and arrived super late after being relocated in another flight."
Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Slight departure delay - no big deal"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and touch screen on TV was working but it took some work -- I had to press and hold and the little arrow would fly all over the screen"
Pros: "The flight was short . Food was pretty good"
Cons: "That we were waiting to take off and the explanation of the technical delay was not too clear and forthcoming"
Cons: "Flight was two hours delayed and we missed our connection in Toronto and had to wait another three hours. AC did put us on the next available flight."
Cons: "After a delay on my first flight, I managed to get to the gate with a few minutes to spare and the door open. The desk agent refused to let me board the plane."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and capable."
Cons: "My first and last flight on the CRJ 9. It's much less comfortable than a prop plane, for a 90 minute+ flight."
Pros: "The flight to Santiago was good.. everything flowed well and there were no mess ups from air canada."
Cons: "on the way home from Santiago to Toronto, Air Canada made an error and did not check my bags al the way through to my final destination and made me go back through security and customs and re check my bags.. making it so I missed my connecting flight home and lost my job! I had to work that day and the mishap completely threw mms schedule off and costed me my job."
Cons: "Very sub par service and you have to pay extra to reserve a seat."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Terrible food and entertainment on the flight to and from Santiago. Felt squizzed like a sardine in the can in the middle row. I will never choose Boening 777 for overnight flights. Transfer in Toronto was confusing. Delayed arrival caused problems in retrieving luggage and made a stressful experience getting to Chicago flight on time - not mentioning sluggish US border check in Toronto. For my next trip, I would rather pick another airline and transfer airport."
Cons: "delayed by 5 hours"
Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"
Pros: "The crew was so attentive and respecful! Kept pouring wine as we wanted (without saying a qorf or requesting it) this is how business class should be. I love air canada business class. Super hyper recommended. Food was ok, in spite it eas a short flight. Crew was very very nice. ❤️"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Being delayed for mechanical issues seems to happen more often now, which gives pause. Obviously we want a safe aircraft and I'm glad they deal with the issues, but why are these issues popping up more frequently now? Also, the seats are very uncomfortable for a tall person - no lumbar support"
Cons: "Delayed without notice and broken sound system for tv screen."
Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment or a boarding pass for my connecting flight"
Pros: "Ease of booking"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew members were also friendly"

Pros: "It was such a nice normal flight compared to the other flights on this trip."
Cons: "Still too much carry on to deal with before take off."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent, and the screen worked really well."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat sloppy in their service of meals and drinks."
Pros: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Cons: "Long line and few staff at immigration. Need twice number of clerks"
Cons: "French annoying"
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and professional. Comfortable flight, given it was 10+ hours long."
Cons: "I have never flown an airline that served dinners without offering a vegetarian (typically pasta) option as a standard meal. Had no idea that I would need to request this, so I did not have dinner on the flight, as the meals were either chicken or beef. At this point in the 21st century, a meatless diet is a widespread life choice, for either ethical or health reasons. I would really like to see a pasta option as a default. Thanks for taking feedback."
Pros: "The flight was on time!!!"
Cons: "I find over the past 25 years that I have been flying with Air Canada the customer service has really went to the dumps !!! Every body is rude and don't understand why."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Meals came out at great times. Food was good but not great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and started late, making our flight delayed, which made us miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Liked being distracted by a free movie."
Pros: "The food was not really good."
Cons: "Boarding by zones is an excellent idea; but it does not work very well. Peole still making lines and standing in front of the gate when their zones have not been called out. Making boarding very difficult and confusing."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "I did not get airline miles credit on my United account as requested. I would like to be contacted about this."
Pros: "Quick easy, I hate that I have to go through sercurity again... but oh well."
Cons: "Refer to last one."
Pros: "The crew tried hard to give me more salad and bread since they didn't have a vegan option and meat was mix with the hot meal."
Cons: "In order to have a vegan or any special meal they ask you to call 48hs before. I've done online but the site I used for booking didn't pass the options requested. Then at checking counter they can't add it not even the return flight. This option should be able to be added anytime! Then why they can't put the meat aside for the hot plate so at least we could eat the rest. Also when preparing vegan or vegetarian meals you can just give cookies and cakes or white pasta! Any meal should be balanced, as for vegen meals it also have to have some vegetal complete protein combination."
Cons: "Flight was 45 min late leaving & I only had 1 hr between the next flights. Because Winnipeg is a small airport, I just made the next connection but no time to go to the restroom."
Pros: "It was about as good as you can hope for in cattle class. Middle seat in the bulkhead row is not worth paying extra for."
Cons: "Power outlet at my seat did not work."
Pros: "Smooth flying, great pilots, pleasant stewards."
Cons: "The food Santiago - Toronto good. Food Toronto - Santiago poor!"
Pros: "We checked in online and were able to very quickly and efficiently check our bags and board."
Cons: "We did not have in flight entertainment. We had to pay $10 to rent an iPad."
Pros: "My scren was´t working ok, and the screen of my sister seat was in ¨wait please..¨ half of the trip. The boarding wasn´t on time but the crew memebers where really nice. Overall okey"
Cons: "We nearly missed a chance to disembark between storms because an idiot decided to grab his bags before we could move. None of the flight crew came to yell at the dummy who was holding us up."
Pros: "Price good; seat comfort OK."
Cons: "Late to board, late to take off, late to land: no explanations other than "We're third in line.""
Cons: "Connecting from London through Toronto to Winnipeg couldn't be accomplished in a 2.25 hr layover. Long line for immigration and and enormous line to go through security again meant I missed my flight and the next one was full. It gave me 5 hours to think of all the reasons why I won't connect through Toronto again."
Cons: "Flight left almost one hour late"
Cons: "air canada overbooks their flights....consequently, i wasn't able to be on the flight that i had booked with kayak. they have flex seating which gives business people who fly alot preference to change their flights at a moment's notice. bad policy for the rest of us."
Cons: "gate was changed without an announcement flight was twice delayed"
Pros: "Organized boarding and in flight service"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Long, but uneventful flight."
Pros: "I am happy that Air Canada is unionized; the personnel are fine. I also like the tvs on the backs of the seats, with their wide range of shows. Particularly, I like Portlandia, though there was only one episode of that."
Cons: "I disliked that the airline forced me to miss my connection (inevitable, I suppose, given the excessive security and the lack of direct, affordable connections between Manitoba and the US) and I had to take a later flight to Toronto and didn't get home until 2 am."
