Missed flight due the delays
Missed connecting flight and westjet did not take responsibility for there delay
I would have liked to have been able to buy some food.
Pros: "Short and sweet."
Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."
Cons: "It was a little hot in there"
Cons: "More than an hour late departing. Added to that it was almost an hour before luggage appeared. Not West Jet’s fault but it made us even later resulting in some of our long drive of our drive to Grand Canyon being in the dark."
Cons: "no food available to be purchased. we left almost 2 hours later than scheduled and were very hungry."
Cons: "The food could have been better. I don’t mind paying but some nicer, healthier choices would have been nice. It is airplane food so no real surprise. :)"
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline all. I felt like a sardine. Seat cushion the most uncomfortable that I have ever experienced."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed due to weather, which is fine. However, more information would have been really nice."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants. Comfort was great. Nothing really was bad about the flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of...."
Pros: "We arrived where we wanted to go"
Cons: "Separated my son and I into middle seats. Made us sit on the tarmac for 30 minutes due a completely predictable issue. We should have been allowed to stay at the gate. Seating is horribly cramped. Less that friendly flight attendants. Arrived late on a red eye in perfect weather. Otherwise delightfu"
Cons: "We never made it to our holiday destination. There were a handful of going to BDA from Pearson. Your inbound flight was late. Would it have killed you to hold it for 5 mins?"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not recling chair"
Cons: "Food options are terrible especially when you pay for them. Better quality needed"
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."
Pros: "The staff on board the westjet plane were nice but a bit short (except one blonde women flight attendant, she was lovely). The others seemed to be a bit short, likely due to heat or annoyance at punta cana airport"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was by far a complete failure. I understand we are held hostage by PUJ airport but westjet needs to step up their canadian staff there. Language by westjet staff basically Spanish only and rude. We waited on a bus to drive 10 feet to our plane and the driver seemed to enjoy letting us sit in a closed bus with babies and children and elderly. One day this will cause a serious medical issue and westjet will pay dearly. Again, I am aware we cant control that but having a canadian manager there to ensure common sense is used with their customers from gate to plane is a must. Until better I will never fly westjet from there again. On the plane they ran out of food. Again major organizational issues from the companies point of view. Also made me pay twice to pick my seats on my connecting flights. This is petty and cheap. I will be demanding a discount or rebate from westjet due to all the above. If not my story will continue."
Pros: "Room Sears in row 4"
Pros: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."
Pros: "Carrie (?) who looked after us in Plus was great. Was a nice flight - thx"
Pros: "Staff were very friendly and efficient, no issues with boarding or in flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we were notified ahead of time so wasn't a problem."
Pros: "Good schedule from Bermuda to Toronto, good price, early arrival, professionals!"
Pros: "Smooth ride all the way and picked up time with each flight."
Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "The screens were so old and bad that it would be a total waste of money to pay for the PPV channels. Seats were hard and unconfortable"
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: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"
Cons: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"
Pros: "getting to Vancouver in short time."
Cons: "No movi"
Pros: "WestJet does a good job of making you feel welcome. Boarding in Mexico City was a bit chaotic"
Cons: "My wife and I had specifically booked the flight to return home to Victoria in one day without a stopover in USA. Whilst in Mexico we were informed of a change in flight plan obligating is to briefly overnight in Calgary at significant experience and discomfort thus completely negating the choice of booking this particular flight"
Pros: "West jet people are always so nice. The service is great. Our plane had no TVs which was a bit disappointing and my cup of coffee and pretzels were underwhelming, but then the price is good."
Cons: "There is little to not like. Would I like a bit more leg room? Yes!"
Cons: "no entertainment I didn't order food so can't comment on this The seats are too close for comfort"
Pros: "Fight and everything else was fine."
Cons: "There was a huge problem with the paper work..Names were not filled out right ( middle names missing) and Last name Misspelled even though on our copy it was first spelled right."
Pros: "$200 WestJet dollar compensation"
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours to leave. Not checking for delays before boarding. 12 month expiry on WestJet dollars."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seating in the back"
Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers i Vancouver were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"
Cons: "I checked my little carry-on and it was in Calgary but didn't make it to Vancouver. Trust it will be delivered today."
Pros: "Hannah was a lovely accommodating woman thourghly enjoyed her service, i slept the whole way to Prince George. Crew was welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "Didnt know i bought west jet plus seats. Enjoyed my service though. May think of buying plus again some time soon on one of my up comming trips"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
Pros: "Honesty when informing us on our flight delay."
Pros: "Westjet connect on board. Snacks. No problem to get our bags."
Cons: "The waiting on the tarmac ( 1:00) with a young child. We arrived 2:30 later, so the desk for rental cars was closed."
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient."
Cons: "No Entertainment system which was a huge deal for my partner, but I read my very good book and talked to my very nice seat partner."
Pros: "I like that there is a route from northern Vancouver Island to northern Alberta."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked.................................."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful, very welcoming, and cheap air service!!"
Cons: "ran out of food only had 10 tablets to offer customers on a packed plane"
Pros: "Getting on in Palm springs and getting off in Winnipeg. Thanks WestJet"
Cons: "Not knowing to download The app until I was on the plane"
Pros: "Good snacks $"
Cons: "Title says it."
Pros: "Complimentary drink."
Cons: "People bringing large items as carry on and thus making the overhead bins too full."
Pros: "The people were all very helpful."
Cons: "The system was down. Had to stand in line for an hour. I had carry on and Global entry. But couldn't get my boarding pass without seeing an agent."
Pros: "Great crew, West jet connect worked fabulously"
Cons: "Cramped space and airplane food"
Pros: "Both going and coming was excellent, even with a bit of a delay got in before time, good service, friendly, spacious, I cannot say that of any other airline when flown economy. I really enjoyed the flight and was impressed. I have to ask that you keep up the good work and you might just be NA best airlines, unlike Air Canada, they suck. LOVE WESJET-bit pricey at times LOL"
Easy Covid check in. Excellent onboard service.
Pros: "seats were pretty cramped in economy"
Cons: "AC lost one of our suitcases and it did not arrive until late afternoon of the next day. Filled out a missing luggage report."
Cons: "Being near the back of the plane we missed out on all the food options except for the chicken wrap which was horrible. You ran out of everything else."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "It would be better if the checked-in luggage is included everytime we book our flight via air canada so it will be hustle free for all the passengers."
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "they boarded zones 3, then 4, then 5.. utter chaos. When I asked a male flight attendant the premise for this he was rude and aggressive. My wife phoned CA to book a gluten free meal the day before. The process was so complex she gave up. 9 hours no food. I was reminded again why I hate this airline"
Cons: "They didn’t put enough fuel in the tank and the pilot only noticed when we were next in line to take-off so that led to a 30 minute delay. Some terrible seat designer put the call button and light control on the armrest exactly where your elbow rests so every few seconds you would here a call bell."
Pros: "Amazing crews"
Cons: "Less option in special request in online. Gates and planes are not updated when applied online"
Pros: "They have the best blankets! I always get cold but the blankets are nice and thick. The entertainment system was easy to use with a wide variety to choose from. The seats are comfortable and easy to sleep in. Overall just a great comfortable trip!"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "My wife’s screen did not work. The pitch between the seats was too narrow for a transatlantic flight. Older plane that needed to be cleaned and updated."
Cons: "The food. Skip the cup of noodles."
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
Pros: "The crew was lovely!"
Cons: "Please feed people on international flights! Don't charge passengers for crappy samdwiches. Please figure out how to make the online check in work, I was sent an email telling me to do it and the websites did not work, even though I tried several times from different devices. Please fix that!"
Cons: "Flight back was OK but flight to Orlando was not. Travelling with s 94 yr old man in a wheelchair. Everything at Pearson is not conduscent to travel with a handicapped person. Poor layout, poor assistance, non caring people, long distances,, and final straw was air canada started boarding without calling for handicapped first. We had to stop them and then fight our way up the aisle with people all in the way. Terrible, just lousey. 3 and a half hours before flight we arrived and didn't even have a chance to get some lunch before flight. I give Toronto and air Canada the worst possible rating of any airport or airline I've ever dealt with. John O"Hearn"
Cons: "They charge us extra $140. Which they not supposed to. Your flight experience is very good. But airport experience was very Bad If possible please return our money which you taken On airport. Aircoditionar at thermal was bad too. They keep us (all passengers)stand around 30 min in that condition."
Pros: "I would choose this route again--I liked the timing of the flight and transferring in Toronto."
Cons: "The kosher food was abysmal which may not have been Air Canada's fault. When a seating problem arose with an ultra orthodox man who refused to be seated next to me (a woman) the flight attendant told me, "I don't deal with that." Finally another flight attendant found the man a seat between two men."
Pros: "Flight crew attitude was excellent, comfort in premium class was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment, choice very limited, bring your own. Space for carry on luggage limited. They should not allow passengers to have more than 1 carry on."
Pros: "Staff all friendly and helpful, both at desk and in plane. Seats were pretty comfortable with sufficient leg room (I am tall), but if you are a wide person (or next to one) it would have been pretty cramped. Neither of my flights (to Newfoundland) were full so we all had a bit of extra space. Food was adequate but could be improved with fruit instead of dessert."
Pros: "Service of staff"
Cons: "Lost my baggage and all of my flights where late causing me to miss one of my connections"
Cons: "Flight was more than hour delayed. When it hit the turbulence zone it was insanely scary. I know it's nobody's fault but leaves bad felling about the flight."
Cons: "1. Too cold 2. Patron behind me was tall and his knees repeatedly pushed into my back through a paper thin seat back 3. Waited 45 minutes on tarmac AFTER landing to deplane"
Pros: "Love Air Canada. Great service and good entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing because it didn't happen"
Cons: "When I got to the airport, the attendant notified me that my flight had been exchanged. No one notified me of this and I was still under the impression that my flight was scheduled as my itenerary in my latest email. It took two hours to figure out that United had changed my flight and booked me on a different one. Once again, without notifying me. Thank god they changed my flight to a later one or I would have missed it. By the time we figured out what flight I was on, I had to sprint to a different terminal because check in was closing in 20 mins. I arrived at the check in kiosk with less than 5 mins to spare. The experience was terrible and customer service from each Kayak, United and Air Canada. I also injured my back while sprinting between terminals wearing a heavy backpacking backpack. Would not book through Kayak again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I was rebooked even though I could have make the connection. I had only a carry on so the luggages were not an issue."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."
Pros: "Flight was on time, direct, and uneventful."
Cons: "The seats are very tight. They ran out of the lower priced drinks. No leg room."
Pros: "No issues with the plane or service itself but we were stuck waiting for a replacement plan for a late night flight and departed 4 hours after schedule."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "No snacks offered. Checked bag fees."
Pros: "Tv options"
Cons: "I'm only 5'10" and my knees were digging into chair in front of me. Also, we had everyone boarded about ten minutes early (which is awesome) and we were told we would leave a bit early, but then sat there for about 15 minutes and departed even later due to long line for take off."
Pros: "The trip to Edmonton was very smooth and right on time. Everything was very good.....including the baby behind us. I will fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I didn't like the change in gate at Edmonton to Vancouver. No one told us until boarding time. Even tho there was ample time to get there since it was the next door gate, I was in a wheelchair and if it had been any further, it could've been a disaster. We arrived right on time. I'd go Air Canada again."
Pros: "More comfortable but because we payed $200 to fly emergency exit"
Cons: "That we had to pay $200 for emergency exit"
Pros: "Quietness of the airplane"
Cons: "The seat back was not comfortable for my back."
Pros: "Superb experience all around....comfortable, clean, good entertainment, on-time, good food curteous crew!"
Cons: "Nothing- we will definitely travel with you again!"
Cons: "All three Air Canada flights that I had to take on this itinerary were late including the 2nd one which was six hours late. Air Canada personnel on this 2nd flight did not do a good job of communicating information to the customers during the delay. Air Canada booked be on a 3rd night that lead me to only get 3 hours sleep in a hotel. AC does not work with the customers when booking flights. they just make changes after the previous flight has left the ground."
Pros: "Friendly airport and flight attendants. Ease of checkin."
Cons: "Absolute joke of an airline with zero customer service. I would never travel with them again and would recommend anyone else not too."
Pros: "crew was awesome"
Cons: "that people can recline their seats in coach. very uncomfortable and there's really not enough room to do this."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. It was one of the least comfortable flights I've been on in th past few years."
Cons: "Certain Crew Members were a bit rude and abrasive"
Cons: "Moved to another flight despite the fact we were on time to make the flight through security."
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to every single person that asked for anything on the flight. Even someone asking for a simple glass of water was given attitude. I booked my seats over the phone and they were not the seats they told me they were. Aweful service"
Cons: "No monitoring of travel route"
Cons: "Child behind me kicking seat entire time!!!"
Cons: "Flight was over two hour late. Customer service did nothing to help. Suggested I figure out my connection in Los Angeles. Get on the plane and the entertainment system not working. No one willing to help. Land in Los Angeles and had to wait 20 minutes for a gate. So not only did I miss my connection flight, I have to wait until tomorrow to see if I can get on a flight"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment best I guess, it's very difficult to be comfortable in those horrible long flights. The crew was nice"
Cons: "So cramped, I know you want the highest profit margin possible but I don't appreciate spending 1800$ to feel like a prisoner. The food was barely food."
Cons: "Same as above. everything was bad. from service and communication."
Pros: "Once the plane finally took off, the flight was fine. The plane is a commuter jet, and so the seats aren't very comfortable. But the flight is only a little over an hour; so the comfort level is okay."
Cons: "At first the plane was listed as delayed for 30 minutes. Then it changed to an hour, then two hours, then four hours, and finally five hours. The delay was weather related, and Air Canada can't control the weather; but I wish they would have been honest about the length of the delay instead of stringing us along with anticipated departure times for five hours."
