Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The flight was less than half full, first time in years I’ve had that experience. Everyone had space to be comfortable. Crew AND passengers were all polite and relaxed. Cheese and fruit tray was delicious. Free texting and entertainment for your own devices."

Pros: "Great crew! On time professional Food average. Excellent pitch for the Alaska Mileage plan and credit card"
Cons: "for a 1 hour flight, you could add more frequent services from Reno to SJC. This will help remove traffic from the roads during long weekend and encourage more travel to Reno/Tahoe area from those of us who don’t prefer driving in traffic"

Cons: "Care taker"
Pros: "The short flight."

Pros: "Great seats, excellent crew, food and drinks were great..."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't good. Stuck outside on the jetway / tarmac in 90F heat for 10+ minutes in Cabo. Bad for kids and elderly - better to have everyone wait inside with the AC on until the plane is ready!"

They told me that I wasn't allowed and that I would 'have to' book another flight for another $125!!!! I feel like I was robbed! By the time I made it to the gate of the other flight I was 'forced' to buy it was 5:48...plenty!!!!! of time to board my previous flight! I will NEVER fly with alaska again! Bunch of thieves!!!!!!"

Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Had a window seat, and the "wall" by the window was ice cold. I was wearing a windbreaker and was shivering the entire time. My feet were in thick wool socks and leather boots, and even so they were freezing! This did not happen on my previous flight with Alaska, so I hope this is an isolated experience just for this particular plane."
Pros: "Friendly, charging outlets at every seat"
Pros: "This was my first time flying on a big commercial plane and having to deal with big airports. All in all, I had a great first time experience. The whole process made sense, it was fast, easy, everyone was friendly. I never had any hiccups or got lost. So thank you for making my first time so easy and for all the hard work all of you do to make that possible for everyone!"
Cons: "The plane left late but still arrived on time so I really don't count that as a criticism. If that's the worst thing you've done, then keep doing what you're doing because I have no problem at all with it haha. I will definitely be a repeat customer!"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful"
Cons: "the crew, especially the guy was so busy talking to the other crew members that he was just going through the motions of taking care of the people. I asked him what mountain that was outside the window. His response was "I don't know" and kept right on talking to his other helper. If a patron asks a question he should at least not give the impression that I was interrupting his talk with the other steward while serving"
Pros: "I liked customer service . punctuality"
Pros: "I like that they allowed active duty to board along with first class etc.."
Cons: "The movie players had no power so it took a while for the crew to get them to us."

Cons: "Flight was cancled"
Pros: "I called to change seats for my wheelchair dad and was cheerfully well accommodated by customer service."

Pros: "Flew to Seattle in the morning in a Southwest Cattle Car. Flew back on one of Alaska's new 737's. Really liked the cabin design. Cabin lighting was very impressive and very easy on your eyes. Well done Alaska!"
Cons: "I'm 6'-6", so more legroom would always be appreciated."
Pros: "Very friendly service. Attendants have God attitude. You can tell the employees are happy and paid well"
Cons: "The bean burrito they give out is just ok. I think it will be better if they just gave a small bag of potato chips or something else. It's free, so all you can do is not eat it if you don't like it I guess."
Pros: "I liked the selection of short films from SIFF, the crew was good."
Cons: "The cabin was a bit too chilly"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "That you charge for the miles credit card"

Pros: "I booked Cathay pacific but they changed to China Southern without any notification."
Pros: "No delays flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "It was easy getting through the line and onto the plane. The seat was on the window, which I wouldn't normally sit in, and was comfortable enough for me to get an hour of sleep on an overnight flight; I'm content with that."
Cons: "The fee for changing my assigned seat, thus the window seat, and one of the flight attendants was very impolite; though overall the flight attendants were pleasant enough."
Pros: "Great airport, friendly and helpful staff. Onto e departure and arrival and very little baggage wait in Vancouver"
Pros: "It was smooth and uneventful."
Cons: "It was all fine."
Pros: "I really enjoyed"
Cons: "Due to the fact that my trip to was not clearly indicated as non stop it is the first time in thirty years of regular travel that I did not have a direct flight to Calgary. Then I was not able to change my flight at the airport even though there was room available on a direct Westjet flight leaving as close to the same time. But the worst part as after landing we waited for a very long time for the plane to pull up to a gate (unnecessarily burning fuel and poluting the environment). And finally we waited another very long time for the doors of the plane to be opened for disembarkation. More than 3/4 of an hour waiting on the ground after a one hour flight very late in the evening. As a result I hat to take a cab home from the airport. Now I will try my best to not fly Westjet."
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,"
Pros: "Everybody was nice. It was my second time flying and they sure do make you feel comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like. It was great all around!"
Cons: "The flight delay"
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: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "We didn’t like having to take the red eye to meet our Costa Rica connection. We"
Cons: "Crew are not that friendly and not polite."
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"
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."
Pros: "Overall flight and connections were good. Board process was smooth and flight departed and arrived on time. Watch for baggage delays when arriving in Fort McMurray as they can sometimes be excessive. No entertainment provided on the smaller planes but most people have some form of entertainment with them."
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."
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."
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so as a result my carry-on baggage ended up in the cargo hold. And they treated me like it was my fault. Because of that I had to wait for it at the baggage carousel and I missed my Ferry. Pretty pissed about that."
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: "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."
Cons: "Very long wait for bags"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Being disabled I found everyioine very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "Nothing much to write home about, but I didn't worry about anything in particular during my 4hr flight from Edmonton to Toronto."
Cons: "The crew were not too courteous, but I've come to expect a little bit of cheery happiness from them after flying porter. Not sure I'd complain about this, though. The food was the highlight. The only vegetarian option was mac-n-cheese, and it was horrid. I didn't even try finishing it."
Pros: "Great crew. Thanks Kizel"
Cons: "No delays"
Pros: "Great crew. Very pleasant & friendly."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and flight was excellent"
Cons: "A better snack option would be appreciated"
Pros: "Entertainment, service"
Cons: "30 minutes of delay at least."
Pros: "Service Director n Business class was excellent"
Pros: "Gate crew were very good at keeping us apprised of the status of the inbound plane and our estimate departure time. The flight crew were all very helpful and engaging. Not easy on a packed flight where too many people brought too many carry-on bags."
Cons: "I am a true-blue Air Canada customer but their checked baggage fees has created a disaster when it comes to boarding flights and getting planes in the air on-time. Many people had too many carry-on bags or very large carry-on bags so the time it took to board was ridiculous. Better rules need to be enforced with carry on (not that I blame people for trying, considering the increase in checked baggage fees) so that flights can be boarded more quickly and planes can take off on time."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "The lunch was average at best. Comedy show selections were terrible (in my opinion). I miss the days of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development."
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: "For 2 1/2 hours the baby was kicking the back of my seat. I Thurber around a few times, said something once the the so called parents were not willing to help. I mentioned it to the flight attendednt but being a full flight there were no seat. Changes available. The parents even switched seats but only with each other, they kept the baby behind me. I can only hope they have a baby kicking their seat in the future"
Pros: "Everything went almost smoothly and so I have little to complain about."
Cons: "There was a snow storm in Toronto that caused me to lose about an hour. This is obviously to the fault of no one, but it was annoying nonetheless. It ended up causing me to miss my initial flight to Kelowna."
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."
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"
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: "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: "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: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Pros: "Nothing. This was the least pleasant flying experience I've ever had."
Cons: "1. They scheduled me for an overnight layover FOR NO REASON when there were multiple flights leaving earlier to my ultimate destination. 2. The airplane food gave me food poisoning and I had to spend the night in the ER. 3. My flight the next morning was delayed by 3hrs. Meanwhile, other flights to the same destination were taking off with no problem."
Pros: "Check-in was smooth Air Canada were helpful as am travel with special needs"
Cons: "Nothing for now."
Cons: "I flew from YEG -YYZ and the flight was delayed. It's a good thing that the 2nd flight was delayed or else I would have missed it and no AC employee was interested in helping me make my connection. There were several people on the flight that had connections and were trying to rush off the plane."
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus after our flight was delayed and we had to go back home for a night... Live 45 minutes from the airport and had to have a friend drop us off and come back to get us. Friendly staff for the most part. Some seemed a little stressed out, but its understandable as the job is probably stressful. Especially before christmas."
Cons: "Slow boarding, crowded plane when boarding- rushed to get us on the flight."
Pros: "Lost bag"
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
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."
Cons: "Another long delay with Westjet"
Pros: "Seating and on time"
Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The Edmonton lounge is not sufficient. Minimal food. It is supposed to be above and beyond, but not worth trying to get points for."
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: "Free business class"
Cons: "Food and no entrainment available"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Tell the complainers that they should try flying Aeroflot."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say other than passengers should seriously re-consider taking babies and toddlers on the red-eye flights. Let your kids have a good night sleep and fly during the day."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight attendants were pleasent."
Cons: "Flight was delays from anotjer air company i had to paid 160$ to get on the next one.."
Cons: "No breakfast offered for a four hour flight"
Pros: "The crew was inviting, helpful, and very kind."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. No WIFI on the plane (which was, admittedly disclosed upon ticket purchase, so it was no fault of air canada). Chairs were very uncomfortable and the individual in front of me reclined fully for the entire trip."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
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."
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: "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."
Cons: "Lack of sleep"
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."
