Airline reviews

Pros: "I booked Cathay pacific but they changed to China Southern without any notification."

Pros: "No delays flight arrived ahead of schedule"

Pros: "The friendliness, the options through the app with movies etc"

Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"

Cons: "The flight delay"

Pros: "This leg of the travelling was fine. I know I got fleeced on the price of the round trip to go home for a funeral but didn't realize just how bad until my seatmate told me he paid a third of what I did. Note to self: Don't ask the traveller next to you how much they paid for their ticket..."

Pros: "It's a way to get from point A to point B."
Cons: "It's like taking the bus, it is what it is. Not great but it gets you there."

Pros: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"

Pros: "I like everything"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortable.trays were stained and dirty looking."

Cons: "I was told they don't help you store your carry on. At 66 and 5 feet tall this seems like an impossible feat likely to create issues as it falls on my head."

Pros: "Good quick boarding, left on time. Quick luggage at destination."
Cons: "Getting told to leave the plus section while waiting for the washroom. Too cautious with the tiniest bit of turbulence and the seatbelt sign left on for probably 30 minutes too long."

Pros: "Crew was good as usual."
Cons: "Thought the flight may have been delayed due to issues with ice rain in Toronto. From what was said, it wasn't that, some other issue with the plane and a cancelled flight in the west. No email in advance, no apologies, no freebies (like even a stupid sandwich). You sit an extra 2 and a half hours in an airport with a 5 year old before a 4 hour flight, and see how much the lack of anything grates. And paying for the first bag on the flight. And the emails they did send were after we were already at the airport-in no time to do any good. I Usually like West Jet , but losing my faith in them. Wonder how flair is..."

Cons: "Can't rate food. None provided."

Pros: "Both planes departed late and reason given was staff has not yet arrived . First plane could not rationalize the number of people on board ."
Cons: "Service was slow and staff seemed to be very casual about the fact we would be an hour late"

Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."

Pros: "Folks are nice.."

Pros: "Quick and direct. Great staff"
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Direct flights to mazatlán!!"
Cons: "We are all customers paying to fly from one place to another. Give us all the same service. I’m guessing the ceo’s of WestJet are getting paid enough to care about us."

Pros: "Great service all around."

Pros: "Everything was exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Pros: "The trip to Vancouver was good.....flight attendants very courteous and friendly as usual."

Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"

Cons: "Of the four flights I took with WestJet this holiday, 3 were delayed. The flights were frigid. On this flight the agent at the gate was very rude when I asked about checking my bag, lecturing me about the size of the bag and insisting she would have to charge me if it was a full flight, which she said it wasn’t. It ended up fitting just fine in the overhead. Totally soured my experience. I will not use this airline again."

Cons: "One of the crew members was not careful enough while taking something out of the overhead cabinet and dropped something on my head while I was asleep. The crew apologized but it should not have happened in the first place while the aircraft was flying smoothly and there was no turbulence of any kind at that time."

Cons: "Delays Boarding: boarding from both doors: back door and front door, but no direction from the crew to anyone. Ended up with passengers trying to get in the front from the back and passengers trying to get to the back from the front. This created another extra 15 minutes delay when everyone were stuck in the middle...The rest of the passengers waited outside in Canadian winter cold. On a flight already late."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff were friendly as they had to deal with many annoyed customers. I thought the staff handled the constant delays and cancellations well."
Cons: "My flight to Calgary never happened. In fact due to weather conditions, many, many flights were delayed, some cancelled. No more flights to Penticton, so I had to take a flight to Kelowna after 6:00pm or fly the next day. I met a couple to share a ride to Penticton once I reached Kelowna. My luggage was lost in Calgary and so I went on to Penticton, to Osoyoos. The next day, West Jet delivered my suitcase to me. I appreciate the voucher I was given to buy a few things and the promptness of my luggage. We live in Canada, the weather in the winter can be quite an annoyance and so it was last week."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful."

Pros: "Seamless boarding"

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."

Cons: "No internet and therefore no in flight entertainment."

Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."

Pros: "It was quick and efficient"

Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."

Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient"

Pros: "Good service. Really nice smooth flight."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "The woman checking my boarding pass before I was going to get on the plane was not very friendly. Because of the full flight they were asking that large carry-ons be checked. I was fine with that especially since I saw it was a smaller plane and I could not maneuver the steps with both my carry-on and my personal item. I asked if I could also check my computer bag and she said no. The fact that I have trouble walking and maneuvering and she wasn't willing to help me out just seemed like very poor customer service. Had I known about trying to maneuver the stairs I would have been more prepared."

Pros: "everything ran very smooth . friendly staff."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat not enough space."

Pros: "everything was good Always enjoy flying with West Jet"

Cons: "Very long wait for bags"

Pros: "They promised a taxi voucher"
Cons: "The customer school was closed and the phone car was snide."

Cons: "Cramped seating"

Pros: "Being disabled I found everyioine very helpful and friendly"

Pros: "row to myself"
Cons: "no free wine!"

Pros: "I was replaced with a new suitcase (not as good quality)"
Cons: "My third suitcase was destroyed while flying with west jet"

Pros: "Liked the choice of free beverages."
Cons: "The departure time was repeatedly postponed at the Halifax airport and was the only plane that experienced any delays that morning/afternoon. No explanation was given until we asked an agent who said that it was because there had been fog over Halifax airport and so the original plane had landed in Moncton instead. Something just doesn't add up right."

Pros: "Quality of food was good Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work No WestJet Connect Fair amount of turbulence"

Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."

Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."

Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"

Pros: "Extra legroom but I paid for that"
Cons: "Not getting the meal I prepaid for and the curtain of business class constantly hitting me it was not good."

Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"

Pros: "Just I had flight."
Cons: "When I got bording pas I don't have sate number and zone number. when I ask many times just they told me wait.....I had many flights from different air lines but I didn't saw like that."

Pros: "The flight was good, on time, and comfortable. Crew was polite and informative."
Cons: "The sound did not work on my screen, even after trying 3 different sets of headphones."

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "They allowed us to make an earlier connection without any fee. That was very kind. Thank you."

Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."

Cons: "My bag was delayed and I end up paying to buy a pant from sports chek and now when I am trying to connect with Air Canada flight to make a claim, they are not even responding to my request."

Pros: "The crew on board all flights were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "When I arrived at my destination I found that the item I had gate checked had been damaged- an instrument case I was no longer able to close. The zippers had both been busted off. Due to time constraints I was invited to write a review and email which I intend to do. The item itself was gate checked for safety - and to me the damage says that still somehow it is unsafe to fly with an instrument which as a professional musician is frustrating. In addition flights have very limited food options that accommodate persons with gluten/dairy allergies."

Pros: "Short flight so can't say much. Lol"

Pros: "Two full drink services was nice"
Cons: "USB outlet didn't work, and my seat didn't have a normal AC outlet"

Pros: "The staff and service were excellent!"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Pros: "Didn't actually take this flight due to a missed connection."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."

Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."

Pros: "Not anyone's fault --- delayed due to Fog. Then on rout to Ottawa when they started selling food, they ran out of the main breakfast meals and or cheese plates by isle 19."

Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."

Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."

Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"

Pros: "It was on-time, left enough time to reach connections and my bag arrived."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed boarding in NYC but it wasn't a long delay and we left on time."

Cons: "No good movies or music"

Pros: "Air Canada front desk people were wonderful and helpful."

Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "The plane was very old and delayed for too long. Way overpriced air fares."

Pros: "Everything was really good"

Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Lack of sleep"

Cons: "There was no access to movies."

Pros: "I like the comfort of the seats and how fast the boarding and take off was."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not offered peanuts during my flight. The last time they offered free peanuts"

Pros: "as above"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."

Cons: "Crew not overly friendly"

Cons: "Overbooked the plane and tried to get me to leave. No food. No drinks. No good"

Pros: "Hourly flights in a Boing 676. Comfy economy class seats with leather headrest (cleaner than fabric). Ample overhead space for carry ons. Individual TV monitors with entertainment (I prefer leaving it on flight itinerary status while reading a book). Good bretzels & tomato juice served by a multilingual flight staff. Boarding, departure & arrival on time to the second. Can't ask for more."

Cons: "The luggage requirements are ridiculous - my bag was 5 pounds over and I was asked to be $100. The cost for an overweight bag should be the same as a an extra bag ...."

Pros: "Flight attendant very caring and friendly."
Cons: "Gate attendant very rude - made my daughter cry Her seat was way at the back. Baggage handlers lost a luggage strap - sturdy one 7 boarding pass The gate was changed to one at the end farthest from original gate It was supposed to be two flights - she ended up with 7 boarding passes in the end. Second really unpleasant flight with Air Canada in less than a year. Will avoid Air Canada from here on."

Cons: "Salty pretzels!"

Pros: "Nothing lost my luggage we had a delay on Dec 29 from Montreal got to Toronto 15min later we missed the connection plane and there was nothing y'all could of done no hotel rooms no coupon for food telling us that it was all booked wen we didn't not asked to be on the delay and me coming back on west jet on Dec 30 I've lost my luggage and kno body there knows were it's at"

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "not even a little snack served with the drinks and the amount of legroom was minimal and I'm not tall"

Pros: "The crew actually enforced the zones when boarding, which often isn't the case and tends to slow things down."
Cons: "This connecting flight was worse, as we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour and were not provided with so much as a single beverage the entire time we were waiting or flying. Apart from the great in-flight entertainment system, the whole experience was brutal."

Pros: "Luggage arrived a late"

Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."

Pros: "Gate assignment was only 44 minutes before take off and with the size of LHR got there after boarding had started. Confusion as right beside it was an AC direct flight to Toronto also boarding so lines were mixing. A hot meal provided which was good except for a stale roll and awful "salad". A hot wrap provided later in flight that was awful, should have used pizza pockets. Good crew and good flight. Always carry active noise cancelling ear buds or headphones."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "this was the first leg to Phx. Offering a seat sale, then cancelling the flight, and arbitrarily rerouting us on a milk run! After calls to AC was able to make more acceptable arrangements, with their code share United. Then United did cancelled our flight the night before and rerouted us. Bottom line, we choose AC because of the seat sale and overall time of our travel. I will likely avoid using AC in the future even if I have to pay more!"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food, comfort"

Cons: "The outfitter canceled us so we did not go. It was out of our hands that the outfitter canceled us for certain reasons such as whether poor infrastructure, but we are still going to have to pay a Re-booking fee and Processing fee for each passenger."

Cons: "I work at an isolated mining camp and could not fly out due to weather and when I tried to reschedule or cancel my flight with Canadian north the cancellation fees, rebooking fees were more than the cost of purchasing a new flight straight through air canada. I will never use this service again."
