Pros: "West Jet staff and crew are always great."
Cons: "My flight was delayed over an hour - we sat on the tarmac waiting for de-icing for over an hour. There is no entertainment on this flight (so no wifi or tv) and we were not really notified how long we would be delayed- causing delays for me in Saskatoon that I could not provide information for."
Cons: "Because of work had to change dates was told no changes no refunds. I spend at least 15000 a year on flights mostly west jet. Will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable Nice to have direct flight"
Cons: "No interaction from the cockpit about areas we were flying through. No duty free. Felt like a local flight and not a transatlantic flight....crew did not come around often enough to provide water, etc"
Cons: "Didn't end up on this flight!!!! :("
Cons: "Premium seat was just coach seat with middle seat blocked. But you're in the first 3 rows."
Pros: "The crew went out of his way to help us!"
Cons: "The landing was the worst I have ever experienced! Must be a student pilot or something! Been traveling for many years and never once vomit! I almost did in this flight! twice!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice.seats and storage better"
Cons: "Food choices too small, nothing hot, way to expensive"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and organized. The airport functions really well and the staff is very pleasant"
Cons: "Wish the movie selection had more recent variety! Lots to choose from but I found many were a mix of older movies"
Cons: "Late departure. No a/c in plane for an hour on tarmac. People fainting"
Pros: "Crew was good, bumpy flight. Landed well"
Pros: "Arriving early!"
Cons: "Taking off late."
Pros: "Smooth flight, staff are all friendly! Overall a great trip!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment require extra charge, although I understand that it is standard for short trips and smaller planes."
Cons: "The flight left without me"
Pros: "Snack service and in flight movies"
Pros: "Crew was nice enough and there was more leg room than on some flights I've been on."
Cons: "The power outlets didn't work and it was a long flight so my phone died and there was 0 entertainment provided, made for a long, boring flight. Ended up trying to sleep most of the time and missed the food service. The plane was also weirdly cold."
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Cons: "They kept us on the aircraft for 4 hours on the tarmac as opposed to let us sit at the gate"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "I think for a flight of that duration a light meal should be served."
Cons: "Economy too cramped."
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: "I had to travel with a wedding dress. Westjet does will NOT replace lost Wedding dresses therefore they MUST be carried onto the plane. once on the plane there is no where to hang the wedding dress. The flight attendant was kind enough to take it from me and STUFF it in the over head compartment :( I was furious!"
Pros: "Sweet and short flight."
Pros: "In the flight there was a crew member she was not polite ...As I want to use washroom urgently & I was not very much familiar where is washroom I asked her three times she did not reply back...Just walk away...if she does not understand me, she cam say pardon me...but she just left"
Cons: "Everything else was good...great help from Abbotsford staff...I really appreciate that"
Pros: "I loved flying West Jet and would happily do it again. The food was good (preordered) and we got to our destination safe and sound which is always much appreciated. Our flight was on time and we had no trouble boarding or any technical issues at all."
Cons: "I didn't like how internet/any entertainment had to be pre paid. We already pay a lot (even for the food...$9 wraps!), so to charge for literally everything seems a little much. Also not a fan of the reclining seats. We have zero leg room to begin with, I don't need some stranger crushing my knee because he wants to attempt to move back. I just shoved my knee into the back of the chair so he couldn't move back anymore."
Pros: "on time, quick boarding. NO LINES at TSA!!!!"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice"
Cons: "It was cold on the plane!"
Cons: "It did not happen. Being transfered to air canada in Toronto was a night mare"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "there was no movies to watch"
Pros: "Seats could be a bit bigger for tall people."
Pros: "The ticket price was great. The crew were nice."
Cons: "There is no monitor in front of you/in-plane, so bring your own tablet"
Pros: "I like that there is a route from northern Vancouver Island to northern Alberta."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked.................................."
Pros: "We flew - we landed"
Cons: "Six family members travelling together... you’d think you could sit together wouldn’t you! Coffee & pretzel/cookie for a 3hr flight. Landed just after 1700, waited for luggage for almost one hour... good thing it wasn’t an A380 or 747."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Gates were changed and I was not informed. Flight was almost an hour delay. My luggage was never even put on the plane. So I cam from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to Yuma, AZ and have no baggage, no clothes, toiletries, nothing! It is 9:14pm and won't have any luggage until MAYBE 7-8pm Monday night. It is Sunday night now. Not happy!!!!!!!! No food on the flight!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped, uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was very good. The crew was pleasant and entertaining"
Cons: "I don’t want to give an excellent review because it leads to higher fares. But these people are pretty darn good we like to fly with them as much as possible. Two things can be corrected, however. Firstly the amount and size of carry on. If a bag or bundle looks really too big it really is too big. These people are so accommodating though they just let it go. Secondly, sometimes we check in early on line and we have a bag allowance. However, when printing a boarding pass at the airport if we say we are checking a bag the machine wants to charge for it. We always have to ask an attendant to clear this. Perhaps it’s time to fix this little issue. Like I said, I hate to give them an excellent rating because it makes it harder to get a good seat. The company is great and the folks working there are really great. Sorry to say."
Pros: "The airplane being pretty small, boarding and getting off was fast. No issues or delays either."
Pros: "West Jet left on time. ."
Cons: "A 4 1/2 hour flight turned into close to 5 hours. Considering that a person has to be there well ahead of time, go through customs etc. a cup of coffee and 2 cookies and no entertainment anymore, it's a long and boring flight ."
Pros: "The service its good"
Cons: "One baggage did not arrived"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "For a flight that lasted close to five hours it seemed a long boring flight."
Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough, although I did overhear them talking negatively about some other customers out of earshot."
Cons: "The food options were pretty poor for an eight hour flight. I'm happy I brought some food with me because there were few options (snacks - biscotti and party mix, no meals). They also charged customers for checking a bag; most airlines allow the first checked bag to be free for international flights. Not the case here."
Cons: "Low-quality white wine. Good to encourage Canadian production but cheap choices do not help the airline's réputation."
Cons: "This flight is always late to leave and always gate changes. Maybe the time should be permanently changed. I have caught this flight 3 times and each time the same issue"
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled."
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"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. At the gate no one announced anything, agents were just standing there looking around. People had to approach them one by one to see the reason for the delay."
Pros: "It's a short flight. Crew was good."
Cons: "There were several announcements to download the Air Canada app in order to access in flight entertainment. They must have been 5-6 announcements about this. WiFi access was to start after take off in order to use the app. but was never available."
Cons: "2h delay because of technical issues"
Pros: "Took off early; landed early. Helpful crew and a good amount of food and beverages were served."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost 3hours and I missed my connecting flight in Toronto and had to wait another 3 hours. Air Canada did not seemed to care about my difficulties at all."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"
Pros: "Reasonable food"
Cons: "One suitcase did not arrive. Not sure when will arrive"
Pros: "Although late, boarding was smooth and ready for take off quickly."
Cons: "Late again taking off. The staff were unpleasant as most air canada staff have been in recent years. Uncomfortable seats for a 9hour flight and miserable low energy staff didn’t help the experience either."
Pros: "That we arrived in Toronto and got to get off the plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours. The rows are way too close together to be remotely comfortable, and the seats themselves are tiny and barely recline. Being 5 months pregnant, I was uncomfortable the entire flight. The "entertainment" that you have to download an app for didn't work, and particularly stung knowing how much we paid for the flights, and that other airlines simply put a TV on the back of each seat that is easy to connect headphones and view. The food on our previous flight had been so terrible we didn't bother on this trip, but it looked equally awful. My husband was in the aisle seat and the flight attendant repeatedly and without warning hit him with the cart. The flight attendants varied in level of friendliness, but the ones in our row rushed through service, and did not give us the options the other row had (ice in drinks, veggie or meat options). All in all, it was kind of a terrible flight experience."
Pros: "Constant supply of food"
Cons: "No entertainment on seats"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very economical; bland minimal food; no complimentary wine. Flew with Air NZ to auckland in April; food and wine offered throughout flight. Flight attendants didn't smile or engage with passengers; treated service like a job they had to do"
Cons: "Every flight was late. If we didn't have long layovers between flights we would have had problems"
Cons: "No entertainment and poor seat selection process"
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flights"
Cons: "limited leg room"
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."
Pros: "Seats were ok but a bit cold all the way."
Cons: "One hour late leaving, no reason or information given. Food was awful with green sauce on chicken and celery bits in milk for salad, the connecting flight was cancelled and the option was another flight in two days. The only flight going later that evening was full and the next day was full also they said. An hour later a bus service was offered leaving in ten minutes which many of us raced to catch on our own with no one to show us how to get to the bus. The bus we were told to look for was the wrong bus. Of course our luggage didn't make it and that took another hour to register at our destination as every one else on the bus didn't get their luggage either. Bus driver got lost but passengers were able to show him the way. This is the third time in four flights Air Canada has lost our luggage. The worst was the NO ONE ever smiles, we were watching for it, and certainly NO ONE ever says we are sorry you are inconvenienced which would go a long way to make the delays and changes more tolerable."
Pros: "Good flight overall - the Air Canada Rouge entertainment was not bad, but didn't work on one of our phones and I couldn't get it to work on my tablet (driver wouldn't load - and couldn't check for driver til we got on plane, so that was frustrating). No issues with the other phones and my ipad. Food was good."
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Entertainment and food were nice. There were two meals, one would have been fine, but both were great."
Cons: "The check in counter in Dublin was horrendous. I was forced to check a luggage that was my carry-on on the outgoing flight so there was no reason it was not going to fit on the upper compartment, but the counter agent forced me to check it anyway, even with it being under weight limit. The line was huge and there were 5 counter agents, but 3, and at times 4 agents, at a time, were only pulling from the priority boarding line. We had to wait more than one hour to check in. Than to the boarding, the same people from the counter were the boarding agents. The boarding was extremely slow and again unorganized."
Cons: "Took off too late and missed next flight"
Cons: "The anxious flight crew. Would like more variety on the player and I shouldn't have to watch a 4 minute commercial after every 20 min episode, especially when it's my own device."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful when we missed our connection to Vancouver due to fog in Toronto. Also,it's good that you delay landings for safety purposes.The on board meal was good also."
Cons: "Being in the middle seat in the middle row was not very comfortable. The 767 maybe should be used on shorter flights."
Pros: "While I do just like to have my legs fit in the seat, the room makes for a much nicer seven hour flight. The provided iPad setup is good for entertainment and the good is fine."
Cons: "They boarded early while our connecting flight was late. They told us they could not allow us in even though we arrived 1 hour before. Had to purchase all new tickets."
Pros: "I liked the vegetarian options for food."
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 and a half hours early, and thank goodness: check in took forever and they obviously didn't have enough staff, and never fixed that. Had to rush through everything else. Crew was unhelpful for those of worried about missing our connecting flights since the plane was late: those on board said they had no way to know and to ask the gate agent when we landed, the gate agent scoffed at us saying they had no way to know. I've been on flights where the crew kindly gave out connection information, so this is lazy on Air Canada's part."
Pros: "Planes were clean, relatively comfortable & flight attendants were polite. Flights that had individual screens on the seatbacks offered good movie choices."
Cons: "Ugh. Delays of 1-2hrs each on 3 of 4 flights for one trip. Missed connecting flight in Toronto. Baggage was a disaster. No communication between staff, was told something different by each person I spoke with. Flew to London & didn't get my bag for 3 days. Flight delays put me in to London a day late, wearing same clothes without access to my bag & lost 4 more hours of site-seeing time following day calling the airline & trying to meet up with courier delivering my bag. Then on my 7hr midday flight back to the states our plane had no screens at all for in flight entertainment. Security and Customs check process was ridiculously long. Waiting in line after line, and the automated kiosks processing passports were fickle delaying lines & leading to further follow up by staff. Very confusing and overheard several passengers talking about missing connecting flights. I highly recommend not flying Air Canada until they become more organized."
Cons: "Minutes and minutes of ads on the app that you have to download on your own device. Flight attendants that manage to bump into your arm every single time they walk up the aisle even though you're using the arm-rest. None of the flights left on-time and they lost my luggage. Really got the "bare minimal effort" feeling from the crew."
Pros: "The Dublin Airport has a great security system. Very smooth, easy and helpful staff at every point"
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for a very long time, causing us to miss our next flight. This is not an Air Canada issue. The system in Toronto required another trip through security, lines and lines and lines. Technology that no one understood - very little guidance from Toronto staff except - "go here". It took almost an hour which caused us to miss our MSP flight. If you have an international flight through this airport leave yourself more than 2 hours. We had a two hour window and didn't make it in time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was great, the flight was fast, the plane was very comfortable. Other than the time delay, the flight was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over thirty minutes, which was very inconvenient going through customs with a connecting flight."
Pros: "Extra leg room seats were good, expensive."
Cons: "Poor boarding procedures. We paid extra for extra leg room seats, but had to wait until last to board, hat to stow our carry ons 5 and 8 rows behind us."
Pros: "I liked the gate agents."
Cons: "Where to start? How about, the planes are so old and so poorly maintained that our plane was almost three hours late taking off while they fixed something. At least two other flights from Dublin to Toronto took off around us, but we were never offered to be switched over to other planes so we could make our connecting flights. As a result, a plane full of angry people hassled by a serious lack of customer service focus landed in Toronto and had to, AGAIN, get in a huge line to be processed with all of the missed flights. They knew we were coming--WHY weren't there more preparations made for a much smoother transition?? I hate Air Canada and will never again knowingly book that airline. They need to change out the entire fleet of old, crappy, smelly, falling-apart planes."
Cons: "Absolute joke of an airline with zero customer service. I would never travel with them again and would recommend anyone else not too."
Cons: "The flight was fine, but when I got home, I had two charges on my credit card from Air Canada. When I called, the woman didn't know what they could be for, so she told me to email Air Canada flight feedback. I still haven't heard from them."
Pros: "We arrived at our destination safely."
Cons: "Our flight departed from the gate late and then needed to return to the due to a door malfunction. After a 4 hour delay we were on our way. Bathrooms were closed before takeoff but no announcement was made that they would be open during the delay. No beverages were offered during the delay. Not all of the bathrooms were functional during the flight. The entertainment system is available through your iphone, ipad or computer. If you haven't downloaded the app prior to departing you can't use it and you then need to rent an ipad for $10 to watch movies."
Cons: "Being bumped off of our connecting flight home after a long international flight due to overbooking (even though we had checked in all the way through from our departure city). We got split up going home and the $800 voucher that we were promised was decreeased to $400. They also lost our bag due to the changes. The reason we didnt get priority for seats on our connection is because our first flight landed at the last minute and by the time we got to the gate, all but 1 seat were claimed on a furst come first served basis. All staff treated the entire thing as an "oh well tough luck". No empathy because they suck so bad, they're used to seeing angry customers."
Pros: "Flight crew were fine. Flight itself was uneventful."
Cons: "Flights were all over booked. People were being bumped, flights delayed. We were in the Toronto airport for 8 hours. We missed our connection in Denver. The Air Canada people on Toronto said someone would be waiting to help us get a hotel and a new flight when we reached Denver. In realit, the stewards on the flight just gave us a card with a customer service number, said call this number and they will get you accommodations. So no one was at the gate to meet us and no one ever answered the phone!! We were on hold for 48 minutes. We were stuck in the airport for ten hours, through the night, until another flight could be arranged. We had to find someone on United to get us on a new flight. My daughter and I were at the end of 24 hours of flying and expected that what we were told would be carried out. I was not impressed with the way this was handled and no apology or compensation from Air Canada for the delays and sleeping on the airport floor!!"
Cons: "My luggage got lost. That happens sometimes. It showed up in NY after 2 days, but did not arrive at my house until FIVE days later. And even then, the delivery company contracted by air canada would not bring it to my front door, so I had to leave my building to go meet them. With small kids in the house and being home alWhy is this my responsibility?"
Pros: "service was wonderful and I appreciated the assistance in handling my luggage in Dublin"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "convenient direct flight"
Cons: "both restrooms were in poor shape (as compared to typical airline restrooms) and it seemed that they had not been thoroughly cleaned in a while."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but not overly helpful. There was a nice selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "The food was horrible and made me throw up. The flight was freezing and the seats hardly reclined making it very uncomfortable. Especially since we were on the plane an extra 2 hours from a delay. The flight delay caused me to miss my connection flight. And then I wasn't put on the next available one, I had to wait around in the airport for a very long time, 4 hours to fly home. My baggage was lost. And my credit card was charged twice for my checked bag. The customer service employees in the airport refused to help me with either issues. I am extremely unsatisfied with my experience on Air Canada and will never be flying with it again."
Cons: "We were stranded on the plane for 4 hours in Dublin without ever moving, they had to many checked bags and it took them that long to figure it out, there was no food and we had hungry kids, they would not allow us to de plane..... It was very frustrating. We are still in route and plan on arriving at our destination 20 hours late, they have no options available to get us home sooner"
Cons: "Air Canada ROUGE to Dublin was a nightmare. Small seats. Could not hear the announcements. When I asked the staff to repeat the information, I was assured that they would. They did not. Since the flight was late on takeoff and connections were lost this was critical. Overhead latches were not checked prior to landing. One opened during landing. Only because the pilot landed gently, nothing fell on the people in the seats. Entertainment!! nothing. You need to have downloaded an app to use your electronic device or rent an Ipad. More money in their pocket."
Cons: "The flights were booked much too close together to get through Customs in Canada. If we had arrived on time we would have had only 1 hour and a half to make it to our next flight. However, our flight was late leaving Dublin. It was extremely stressful and we had to literally run through the airport to try to get through customs and to our next gate. if that flight hadn't also been delayed, there was no way would have made it"
Cons: "Flight to Columbus cancelled....cheap vouchers for meals"
Pros: "That we made it there."
Cons: "Delays, old plane requiring app for entertainment, more delays, terrible low class food, the worst of any overseas flight, no drinks, though I don't drink much."
Pros: "Good service flight was a little delayed but taken care of with no big set backs."
Pros: "The in-flight meal was excellent!"
Cons: "I'm tall 6'6" and was stuck in the middle of the center row. I was uncomfortable from the moment I sat down which included extra delay time on the ground."
Pros: "Flights were all on time, crew and staff was very nice. Food was better then other flights I've been on."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable, smaller and did not recline as much as other air canada airplanes I have been on. There was no entertainment for the almost 7 hour flight unless you uploaded the app prior to boarding which we were not told and could not because our devices, or you rented a tablet (which for this long of a flight it shold be included). The cabin was warm and stuffy with not much airflow which made my motionsickness worse and the plane was all on one setting so I could not control anything."
Pros: "Schedule ok"
Cons: "Pitch was miserable Attendant said bit was a low cost carrier so no tv in seat We are over 6 feet so never again"
Pros: "The only positive was the initial price, but even after opting for a price increase to lessen travel time failed with the delays and flight changes."
Cons: "3 out of 4 flights were either delayed, changed, boarding radically changed. An attendant actually had the audacity to sarcastically ask who I was voting for (president) once he new I was American. The customer service rep in Toronto further blamed us for not checking flights 48 hrs in advance, although I checked in 20 hrs earlier and received false flight info. The crew also stated in flight "that those continuing on the the USA, did NOT have to complete customs declaration forms" ....WRONG!"
