Food choices were not good and entertainment worse as the tv was not working

Lost my luggage for 4 days.

Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "There was no social distancing getti9ng on the plane or getting off. I flew jet blue because prior experiences have been amazing. This time it was shameful. People were standing in the walkway for almost 15 minutes because of wheelchairs that had to come of the plane. Disgraceful. And getting off was out of control. People jammed in the aisle to get off the plane. 1409 new york to fll."
Cons: "WiFi to work on the plane"
Pros: "Fast boarding, avoided an unplanned fuel stop which would have been a really big bummer. Jet blue still beats out every other airline for snacks and seats and space"
Cons: "The plane was pretty trashed. Headphone jack and video screen worked only intermittently. Seatback pocket was falling off."
Pros: "They were nice and professional"
Cons: "on this flight a bit more to eat"
Pros: "Everyone was boarded early so we departed early. Quick flight with pleasant flight attendants and nice snacks."
Cons: "The desk agent in Boston could be a little more pleasant."
Cons: "I pick Jetblue over other carriers because of the ability to watch TV. It wasn’t working today and the attendant was aloof and uncaring. What was worse was the bathroom in the back that was ‘out of order.’ Both of these made my flight less than I would expect and I will consider another carrier"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Quick check-in and boarding."
Cons: "The TV did not work. It would go out all the time and then do this annoying flicker almost the whole flight while the TV worked for both people in my row.The skipped us when they were doing drinks and snacks the first time. I was going to buy food as well and she just walked past ou seat in a rush."
Pros: "5 hour delay ruined my experience."
Pros: "Everything including the seating, in flight service and entertainment."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "I will be leaving Dublin to SFO today on Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Great end to end domestic product."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"
Pros: "Good legroom"
Pros: "Everything went as it should be but the inflight entertainment didn’t work. And the flight staff didn’t offer any form of compensation for the inconvenience."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment! And noncompensarion for the inconvenience."
Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"
Pros: "On Time and smooth."
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding, friendly staff, smooth flight, WiFi, lots of TV channels."
Cons: "I wish a non Carb protein snack were offered."
Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "Great flight on JetBlue from JFK to Nantucket. Easy boarding, quick flight and minimal interruptions. So much better than taking the forever ferry from the Lower East side or dealing with the hassle of driving to RI/Cape to catch a quicker ferry."
Pros: "The flight attendants and pilot kept us informed as they received information. All JetBlue employees truly did their best with the unfortunate circumstances."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight and had to spend as much on a rental car to reach my destination as I had spent on the ticket to begin with. Also, I'm fairly sure I'm the only passenger on the plane whose seat-back entertainment system was not functioning. Screen would turn on, say "loading," and then turn off again. Terrible luck!"
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "Flight was on time Leg room was good"
Pros: "By far, Jetblue is the best. Your coach seats are spacious. Customer service was phenomenal with a personal touch."
Cons: "I wish Jetblue flew to more airport hubs, this way I will use it more often."
Pros: "Quick boarding, plenty of snacks and beverages, and smooth flight. Very roomy compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Some of the in flight channels were unavailable."
Pros: "The light snack was adequate. My husband is a big guy and sometimes has issues flying due to size, found seats to be comfortable. Also, Jetblue gave us us a $50 credit for the inconvenience."
Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "Had to check my bag even tho there were a few spots still available."
Pros: "checking in could not have been easier"
Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Security was so backed up. I was not the only one who missed a flight, there were several people in line with me That also missed fights. They seemed very understaffed. When myself and other passengers asked them for help, they either ignore us or laughed."
Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."
Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"
Cons: "World‘s tiniest airplane toilet. I think munchkins built this for other munchkins. And I don’t mean big munchkins, but real real small munchkins."
Pros: "Most everything. Cookies were yummy"
Cons: "No entertainment. Once again it didn’t work"
Pros: "Loved LB Airport - also like all of the in flight channels"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by about 4 hours"
Pros: "Accommodated a change in our flight due to weather seamlessly. Saved our Christmas. Thank you!"
Cons: "They missed checkin bags and told me to collect tomorrow"
Pros: "I took different flight from NY to Turks and Caicos. I understand there could be other factor such as cloud wind etc. But I think JetBLue crew ke pilot could have announced prepared. Or look into better planning/route."
Pros: "friendly agent."
Cons: "Poorly marked boarding times and announcements. Bottom line, I didn't get on the flight and had to take a flight on an alternative airline."
Pros: "The crew seemed ok."
Cons: "It was very late. One runway was closed so that made it even later. We were to land at 7 and it was around 9."
Pros: "No delay"
Cons: "There are nothing I do not like."
Pros: "Crew provided great service."
Cons: "My seat's TV screen had a terrible picture that got worse during the flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "ON TIME! TV Comfortable Seats Leg room (though I am by no means tall)"
Pros: "I have never had an issue with JetBlue, and I only fly with them now. This was a price capped flight to get me out Florida, and I couldn't appreciate it more. The crew was great, and it was the smoothest landing I've ever had!"
Pros: "Great trip, but the mini tv wasn't working which was a bummer."
Cons: "It was a little hot in there"
Pros: "Overall not bad at all :)"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "This was an older plane with no upgrades including no Internet and the very small poor quality Monitors in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. The seats were very uncomfortable. The transfer in Vancouver after customs involved going outside in the cold to and from the bus. There was no warning. The customs area red jacketed help personnel told us that it was just as fast to go throught the general customs are instead of using our Nexus cards and this turned out to take forever. So very disappointing."
Cons: "Better communication at all levels. Remember that the overall strength of a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and this trip had many weak links for us making it a challenge."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. The seat was not very comfortable - it had a very firm seat cushion. The flight time was about 5 hours so it was OK. I adjusted to the feel of the chair. We had seats next to an exit door so we had more leg room which was nice."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable. The seat cushion was quite firm. I sat for 15 hours on a Qantas seat which was quite a bit more comfortable. There was no onboard entertainment unless you had a cell phone and could download the West Jet app. I was spoiled by my flight with Qantas from Vancouver to Sydney. They had touch screens on the backs of the seats so you could choose movies, radio, games, and flight info and the seats were much more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating as they were able to get me a wheel chair on short notice....thank you, thank you. The seat was not the best because the seat-back did not recline (we were seated in front of the EXIT row)....not good."
Cons: "A service of H20 should have been offered...especially when leaving very dry Palm Springs."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "Crew were genuinely always smiling"
Pros: "Crowded"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Hard landing,cramped seats"
Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Male attendant rude. For some reason refused my request for water in addition to cup of orange juice during beverage service. First time ever I was refused water by an airline."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was the first time in 37 years that I have flown so i had a little motion sickness but that has nothing to do with your crew or airline. This experience was very good thank you"
Pros: "Seats comfy, crew excellent"
Pros: "ON TIME."
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seat was ok. A little cramped."
Cons: "Super slow boarding and entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then at the gate boarding didn’t start till 10 mins before take off. Took off almost an hour after the delayed take off time."
Pros: "This is a no frills flight that does not offer food or entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are always uncomfortable as it is a smallplane"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "First flight got cancelled. Mind you it was a 830am flight so I left to the airport at 5am. The moved me to 10am flight, then I get to the gate and get notified that I was put on the 1145 flight. The longest day for me in a long time for travel."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Cons: "No headsets Ran out of several of the food items -- I was in row 10 and they served from the front.... A bit disorganized boarding process but it was Mexico ... Comfort? The seats are way too crowded, and the guy in front of me put his seat all the way back so it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Very bumpy ride, wished it was cancelled. I was motion sick the entire ride, and no water was provided until four hours in, and while I understand it was due to turbulence, perhaps if it is too bumpy to serve water for the first four hours we should not be flying at all. Also very little food is provided for a 5.5 hour trip, two biscuits is not sufficient and as we landed near midnight there are not many options to acquire quick food either."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Pros: "WestJet has very good hard shell seats on the 737-800. These are well contoured and padded, and far enough apart to offer decent legroom (row 8). The seating experience was vastly better than being in a “preferred” bulkhead row on an AC Rouge B767-300. Boarding was efficient so we were able to leave the gate slightly early."
Cons: "Pre-purchased meals are delivered with the first service after take off, which was awkwardly early on a five hour flight that departed at 3 pm."
Pros: "left on time."
Pros: "Due to a baggage check-in snafu, we were very late to arrive at our gate. But we made it! And the staff were still very kind to us even though we arrived so late and they didn't know why. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever been on, and the snack and beverage service was just fine - I loved that cookies were an option and not just pretzels. Overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "JP the flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process Too warm"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Westjet service and staff are friendly and helpful as always."
Cons: "The delay waiting to have the plane deiced before departure was a bit of a pain, but I also know this is out of control of the airline or the airport for that matter. It is something that can happen with the weather, so we just have to be patient."
Pros: "Flights were on time and luggage arrived safely."
Cons: "I couldn't access inflght movies as I didn't realize I had to have the WestJet App downloaded prior to the flight. In any event I like having a screen in front of me rather than looking at a tiny Android screen. Also on a 5 hour flight it seems we should get a hot meal rather than having to pay extra for meals."
Pros: "Friendly relaxed crew. Overall organized and efficient."
Cons: "Both flights were late"
Pros: "Stewardess let me change seats to a cooler part of the cabin at the back of the plane."
Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."
Pros: "The most amazing flight crew. The flight was very cold and one of the flight attendants surprised me with a tea to make sure I was warm. I fly frequently with many different airlines and West Jet ALWAYS has the best flight crew."
Pros: "Haven't flown Westjet in years. Don't know why but I don't have sore kneecaps, was served great coffee, the stewards always smiled and had funny things to say, and the gate keepers were happy and honest. I'm going to be a frequent flyer now for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like....um....nope. no complaints"
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: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"
Cons: "no vegan options on the plain no tv screens"
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."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
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: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
Pros: "Amazing crew who made us feel very comfortable as we traveled with our 9month old daughter. Westjet stands out because of their commitment to service"
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: "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: "The meals and the consistent drink service was great"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "For Air Canada to go bankrupt."
Pros: "Crew were accommodating. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "More elbow and leg room."
Cons: "First plane was newer, 2nd plane was older."
Pros: "All the staff were very helpful, even having boarding passes ready for us for our Vancouver connection to Portland."
Cons: "I'm 6' 7", so for me, economy-class seats are usually the closest I come to being tortured. The food was just OK - not what I normally eat but I'm sure it's fine for others."
Pros: "Crew was great, especially Terrace to Vancouver part, very rough landing in Edmonton, which I know is not the airlines fault."
Cons: "More leg room, when the people in front laid back their seat, it was crowded."
Pros: "Air Canada is consistently a great overall experience."
Cons: "The food is terrible. It's the worst of any airline I've ever taken."
Pros: "Crew, seats and entertainment. Unfortunately a rude passenger in front that put their seat back too far and refused to compromise so didn’t have much leg room over a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ran out of half the food options halfway down the plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to mechanical issue sitting on the tarmac."
Pros: "Crew were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. Great entertainment system."
Cons: "The food is terrible, overcooked watery beefless beef dishes. Better ti brng your own food."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."
Pros: "Really nice comfortable seats, amazing windows larger then usually with new technology. Food was ok. It was nice that crew constantly was offering drinks"
Cons: "This was a direct flight from DFW to Vancouver. 3.5 hours. Upon arrival in Vancouver we were paged to baggage claim and informed that our bags were taken off the plane and would arrive later in the night. Problem was, we were leaving on a cruise at 4:30PM. Our bags had two cruise luggage tags on each bag. When our bags were delivered to us 2.5 days later in Ketchikan, Alaska - The cruise tags had been torn off our bags. There were a minimum of 8 vacant seats and corresponding luggage not on this plane. I believe Air Canada had a chance to load more cargo and removed our luggage to make more room for the cargo. I will never fly this airline again. I had nothing good to say to anyone on our cruise regarding this airline. Terrible passenger service. The guest services said that 16 bags were delivered in Ketchikan from Air Canada."
Pros: "In flight attendance was excellent and we were nearly overfed with plenty of drinks, snacks and meals. It was nice to see both young and elderly ladies as air hostess. This is a strong statement in non discrimination on Account of age in employment. To see a red Indian lady among them was very refreshing."
Cons: "Dimming of the windows was not user friendly and we had to put up with bright reflected lights from clouds. On ground both in Calgary and Vancouver the wheel chair attendance was not at the same level as in Frankfurt where it had been given with paramedic competence."
Pros: "Flight departed on schedule, and landed early."
Cons: "Due to the checked baggage fee, everyone brings massive, heavy carry ons that clearly are oversized and then overhead bins get full fast. I don't understand why airlines don't check people's carry on luggage for size and weight."
Pros: "Flight was great. Check in not so."
Cons: "On March 18, 2018 Joanne, Kevin, and Allison Sheridan were booked to go from SYD to YYJ and only Kevin took off. We went to the airport and my daughter Allison was too anxious to get on as she had to leave her father behind. After she calmed down we went to get on the flight and the lady at the check in, (Onwsha) said it was too late and we could leave the next day. She changed my tickets on the computer and said if we came on Monday, March 19th there wouldn't be a charge but if it was any other date it would be $150.00 per ticket/person. When I arrived to check in on March 19th I was charged the $300. I spoke to Sharon Smith who was with Air Canada Customer Service Coordinator and I explained I was told something different by the customer agent. I told her if I knew that and I was told by Onwsha I would have went on the flight on March 18th but would not have checked the bags and just taken carry on luggage as my husband was still at the airport and he could bring them when he came over. Sharon Smith said there was nothing she could do and we had to pay the $300.00. It really has left a bad taste for me with Air Canada especially how many seats were spare and I was told something different from Onwsha. Thank you for your time. If any other details are needed feel free to contact me."
Cons: "Air Canada Check In staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. My flight was at 7pm and I arrived at 6:10pm because I got stuck in traffic. I had already checked in online, all I needed was to get my baggage tags and drop my bag off. Instead of telling me where to print out my tag, they made me stand in line to talk to the check in staff at the counter. By the time I got to the counter, it was 7:40 and there was zero chance of my bag being checked in for this flight with the staff showing me attitude. When I told him that all I was here before the drop-off time and all I wanted were tags and that his other staff just told me to line up without helping, he just said "you can buy another ticket for the next flight or leave your bag here and pick it up when you return from your trip." Honestly, the worst customer experience I have ever had!"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Pros: "The plane was clean and seemed very new. The boarding process was streamlined in an organized way. The entertainment system was okay."
Cons: "The plane was a huge B787 Dreamliner and the airline didn't allot enough boarding time to accommodate the hundreds of passengers that needed to get on and settle in. Because of this, the flight was delayed by almost an hour and many people missed their transfers. It seemed like an unreasonable lack of foresight to schedule only the standard half hour before takeoff to board ~300 passengers.On top of that, the flight was roughly four hours long (five with the delay) and no complementary food, even a small snack or two, was offered. The seats in coach were made to be decently comfortable padding-wise, but I felt more packed in like a sardine with the people next to me than on other planes. The flight attendants seemed extremely stressed and overworked, and I couldn't blame them."
Pros: "Great food and good space for economy"
Pros: "Getting off."
Cons: "I had a seat with a drip, probably condensation, that feel on my head and face throughout the flight. At one point during takeoff it was a steady stream of water. I sat with a napkin perched on my head and would mop up the water between events. That was a first! And with a long 14 hour flight, not welcomed."
Pros: "The flight crew went the extra mile to give good service. There were plenty of meals and snacks throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms are cramped, they are clean however. Seats are also very close together, others must get out if you are in a middle or window seat."
Cons: "There was a horrid family in the row in frony of me that absolutley refused to control their child at all, even when airline staff stepped in , so a really long flight was made to seem even longer and sleeping was out of the question."
Pros: "Arrived at destination"
Cons: "Ground crew were horrible and unnecessarily rude It’s difficult to deal with hoards of people, I get it, but we were pleasant and cheerful and were treated with harsh indifference, decided to seek another agent and he was dismissive Everyone was treated like they were annoying and troublesome children! If AC would just find nice people who have a hint of compassion we’d accept being late and squashed"
Pros: "The hot dinner was good"
Cons: "The pudding was poor, it was just a wrapped cookie. The movie selection was terrible! Most of the films were very old!"
Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"
Cons: "Someone was in my seat (and feigning sleep). Not a big problem, I just sat in another seat, but kind of uncool. Cabin crew were never aware, which is odd"
Pros: "Constant supply of food"
Cons: "No entertainment on seats"
Cons: "Baggage hasn't arrived after 45 minutes"
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Had to pay for food but it was quite good so I didn't mind. Supposedly the crew were short staffed but I found them attentive and helpful and to be honest I believe the people who complained may have been a little precious."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so one of the flight attendants let me and my three other friends each have our own personal row in the back of the plane. This made it very comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "Not having any free food options was a bummer, as we had to run to catch this flight and had no time to stop for food in the airport before."
Pros: "Flight was good. Left a bit late but made up time"
Cons: "Security took nearly an hour to get through even though it didn't look very busy."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled after already waiting through a 3.5 hour delay. The inbound flight was delayed due to weather, and as a result, there was no crew available for our flight. This left us stranded at Pearson at 3am with no Air Canada agents available for assistance. After a two hour wait on hold with Air Canada customer service, we were told the earliest flight we could get on was two days later. Unacceptable. We ended up having to buy tickets with WestJet. Weather delays are understandable. Not having sufficient customer service agents available for assistance nor having enough crew on call is inexcusable and incompetent."
Pros: "Very helpful crew and staff assisting with golf buggy ride"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."
Pros: "Air Canada ground crew where very good and helpful as where all staff"
Cons: "Plane was overly cramped, if you eliminate one set of seats and only had 8 across and less row, I think you would make great improvements to overall customer satisfaction if the seating was mad alittle more comfortable"
Cons: "had to pa for poor selection (the cheese "platter" ran out quickly :( )"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system including film festival movies and shorts to pass the time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Very poor pre-boarding area in San Francisco, but I don't think it's Air Canada's fault. Poorly organized seating in the pre-boarding"
Pros: "I thought the overall service was very good. I like how well the crew communicated with the passengers and how smoothly everything went."
Cons: "The food (dinner: chicken with rice, breakfast: eggs) was ok, maybe even a little yummy, but could've been better (eggs where a bit too wet). I also felt like the movie selection was rather disappointing. A lot of not so great hollywood blockbusters."
Cons: "Vancouver B.C. customs routing and clearance long (distance), slow (we nearly missed our PDX flight). Once in PDX, the baggage handler dropped my wifes bag in a puddle and left it there for a full five minutes. Not the type of air travel we are used to."
Cons: "The check in counter was a mess. Though we had checked in online, it still took forever to check in at the counter as the machines could not print out the bag tags, then there was another line up for dropping off the bags. Those machines also could not read foreign passports though Canadian ones were fine. So we had to wait for our friends who were from overseas. The stewardess doing the announcements went so fast you could not hear her except for a few words, and she had a very strong French accent so it sounded like she was speaking in French all the time. But at least she was better than the pilot, whom we could not hear at all. The only word we heard was "cloudy"."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "We lost one of our bags"
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff, fuss-free boarding, good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Plane could have been slightly cleaner (eg replace old, ratty in-flight magazines). Food was reasonable but a bit bland."
Cons: "Hair in my breakfast and they wouldn't give me another meal also by the time they reached me all the options but the overlooked egg was available they didn't explain just dumped the meal on my tray table and when I asked for the other option was told straight out no... I've flown on many airlines and that was by far the most foul meals I've ever had budget airlines do better won't fly ac anytime again.... My original flight was delayed 5 hours to connect so I was transferred to another flight and my bags didn't make it so I went 4 days without luggage also"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty smooth and crew was ok."
Cons: "It was very cold in the airplane and if you wanted a blanket you had to pay for it. Also no free food was served. The plane was slightly delayed (~10 minutes)."
Pros: "Entertainment system is good"
Cons: "Crew was an hour late arriving at airport so flight was delayed. No food, not even a snack, on a 5+ hour flight is not acceptable."
Pros: "The crew is always very kind and welcoming"
Cons: "The flight was delayed without any notification. 1. I could have arrived at a later time at the airport as not to wait so long. 2. It cost me a taxi because I missed the train as planned."
Pros: "service was wonderful and I appreciated the assistance in handling my luggage in Dublin"
Cons: "Nothing really"
