Pros: "seat was the worse, but ok overall"

Pros: "Premium seats were an amazing touch"
Pros: "Casual attitude."

Pros: "Seat wasn't great but on time boarding was awesome"
Pros: "Entire experience went smoothly. Right from when I booked by tickets to checking in at the airport. I was kept informed of changes to the flight itinerary and didn't have any trouble throughout the process."
Cons: "Nothing really could be improved other than typical airline problems that can't necessarily be solved. We did fly out of LAX on our way home and that was more of an unpleasant experience as there is not near enough seating for people waiting to board their flights."
Pros: "I lost my phone and when I went to the airport information, they already knew it is for me."
Cons: "It's all right for a short flight"
Cons: "I asked to pay for a better seat prior to my flight from Kelowna to Edmonton and was told there wasn’t any. When we boarded the flight attendant moved a couple 10+ rows up for no charge."
Cons: "Missed my connection"
Cons: "I missed the flight because the delay of the anterior connection and custom, and they didn't give me a new ticket, I had to buy a new one."
Pros: "Was a good flight. No troubles or delays"
Cons: "Baggage claim was down for a bit, had to wait about 29 min. Not the airlines fault"

Pros: "Everything about the flight was fine except the delay waiting for the new crew."

Pros: "Smooth ride all the way and picked up time with each flight."
Cons: "I was unable to change my flight more than 24 hours before flight without paying $330 extra even though I had insurance.I was told by west jet that I would have to claim the flight change later and see what amount the insurance company would reimburse me for. Not happy at all. I ended up with a layover in Calgary instead of a direct flight to Edmonton. I think that I should have been reimbursed on the phone and applicable price adjustments should have been offered to me at the time if the phone. I give Westjets service a 0 out 10 for handling this situation."
Pros: "Fun, friendly crew on a boring routine short haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down."
Cons: "Should have been home by midnight but ended up landing at 1:45 am."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Cons: "The wifi is paid.. no TVs"
Pros: "They were quick with the boarding and helped me board the plane first with my pet so that it is easier for me. I really appreciated that."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable. I spent the whole flight moving and trying to find a confortable way to sit. I also miss the time where we had meals in the plane. However, I don't mind paying for my meal but I wish there were more vegetarian options than just the hummus."
Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "All good! No complaints!"
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."

Pros: "Flight was good, crew was courteous and boarded on time. Cabin space was adequate and the entertainment provided through WestJet’s app is very good."
Pros: "My brother had a heart attack and I was traveling out Edmonton to be within and his family. It’s a stressful time and I meant to book for Nov 7 but booked Nov 9 by accident. The person at the checkin desk was wonderful. Changed my booking and checked my bag without any charge. It made a very stressful situation so much better, I really appreciate the staff who went out of her way to help me."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about this air line. Las 4 flight have been late..,,,,,,,,,"
Pros: "food, flight crew, leg room"
Cons: "crying babies"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Always delayed, this time because an international flight arrived when we were supposed to board, frustrating"
Pros: "The reliable, friendly crew"
Cons: "We flew from Toronto - Abbotsford with a stop in Edmonton. There was a 1 hour layover in Edmonton before the Edmonton - Abbotsford flight left. Unfortunately, the plane arrived in Edmonton 30 minutes late, and rather than wait 5 minutes for the passengers to disembark from the Toronto plane and board the Abbotsford plane, WestJet decided to leave all those passengers behind. There were no other flights available until the evening, and we were stuck for 8 hours at the Edmonton Airport before we were finally given a flight to Abbotsford. Never again will I book with WestJet."
Pros: "All good !"
Cons: "Like to see direct flight to Kelowna"
Pros: "This was my first time flying Plus and I don't think I can ever go back. Worth every penny."
Cons: "Seat space was too tight"

Cons: "There were no specific "hiccups" or negativity pertaining to the flight."
Cons: "The long delay, 2 kids crying continuous, no place to smoke, no one explained to me that I had to pick up my luggage in Toronto! So now my suitcase is delayed! I was told that it would go straight through to destination. I will never use Delta again! And I will not fly through Detroit or Toronto again!!!"

Cons: "Over 11/2 hour late with no explanation."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept kicking out & had to start over. Gave up"
Pros: "The extra leg room that you have to pay for."
Cons: "Insufficient padding in the “premium” seats. No decent meal selections. The wrap that I had was primarily a tasteless piece of flat bread."
Pros: "Boarding easy & fast"
Cons: "Plane lat, extremely hot, & only 1 explanation with no updates"
Pros: "I liked that they didn't make a fuss when boarding that I wasn't in the section but needed to board earlier due to a knee injury."
Cons: "That they didn't really stop long enough for me to ask for a snack. They asked the other side but as I was on the window seat, I couldn't seem to get their attention."
Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing so far, thanks."
Cons: "Very long delay not fair to passengers"
Pros: "We got home early by about a half hour and the flight was smooth and quick."
Cons: "Didn’t find the crew to be as friendly as I have had in the past. They wanted us to pay for headphones. Was travelling alone with an infant makes coordination etc hard. Didn’t offer help or anything."
Pros: "Food was great"
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Cons: "Aircraft was switched for maintenance. Incredibly late arrival"
Cons: "Flight late (30 minutes) as mostly with Air Canada, fortunately not cancelled this time as also common with Air Canada short distance flights Not enough space in overhead compartments for carry on. The lady at the boarding makes it sound like that is the passengers fault."
Cons: "That there was no meal included. Only ordering extra through the cafe catalog"
Cons: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."

Pros: "Decent movie selection on one of my flights"
Cons: "I had booked my Air Canada trip and had a single stop-over while I switched to a different plane. Both of these planes were Air Canada. I Even though I made it through Customs in the shortest time possible, and back through security, I still managed to narrowly make my second flight. They were final-calling my name and actually taking off earlier than expected. Had I been 2 more minutes late, my flight would probably have taken off. I didn't check any bags either, so had I checked one, I don't think I would have made my second flight."
Pros: "Got free internet for their troubles."
Cons: "They boarded us already a half hour late on our plane. Then after we were all boarded they decided to tell us that the pilots had not even landed from their previous flight yet. Once the pilots finally got on board the aircraft they still took another 40 minutes to do their routine checks. Almost two hours later we finally took off."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Cons: "Late leaving. Plane packed full. Cramped seating, overhead bins full. Carry on baggage seems unregulated. Air Canada does little to make flying pleasant. Cramped seating getting worse and worse. If you are tall, be prepared to suffer."
Cons: "I found the crew members more involved in there own personal conversations rather than the guests.... Trying to get there attention was virtually impossible...."
Cons: "Too hot and cramped"

Cons: "Flight was one and a half hours late leaving."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"
Pros: "Leg room on a wide bodied airplane and movie equipment working well. Stewards were by more than once offering food or refreshment."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "Tv screens were bigger and alot more newer than west jets."
Cons: "I always flew with west jet and herd people say good things about air canada. So I decided to try them out. I had a 4 hour flight and I did not like the seats.. they were not comfortable at all.. the padding felt very thin and could feel the plastic she'll of the seat.. it wasn't just that plane.. i had a return flight with 1 lay over. I would go back to flying west jet. They had the same size planes and way more comfortable seats."
Pros: "On time/boarding by zone prevents unnecessary gathering at the boarding area."
Cons: "Air Canada Boarding agent was rude when I inquired about taking an earlier flight. Her reply was, "The boarding for this earlier flight has now closed- even if I were able to get you on, you would be paying a change fee". I'm tired of the attitude of many of the Air Canada boarding agents."
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Pros: "Seat was broken, you can not recline seat. Flight was full, I was told so you have to sit on same seat. Secondly, there was one kid who keep crying yelling like hell, big time headache. It was about 6 early morning flight came at airport by 3:00am thought will sleep on air. On boarding, only drinks was offered, not even cookies or snacks there."
Cons: "Broken Seat No cookies or nuts, only drinks For kids or infants- airline should give them last seats or offers Air buds."
Cons: "No cookies or pretzels."
Cons: "Flight attendant was awful My seat assignment was the same seat designated to crew and my flight attendant treated badly inspite of the error"
Pros: "Crew members were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We were delayed another hour on the tarmac for refuelling. Seems like they should have delayed boarding."
Cons: "Air Canada has the worst customer service. Hate flying with them"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, and then they lost my baggage, when I landed in Chicago, no bag. A person from United Airlines called me at 7:00 AM the next morning and said that they had my bag. He directed it to GRB that day. Thanks to him I got my bag back!"
