I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "Staff were very good."
Cons: "We had an infant and in order to get a meal for the baby one of our paid seats did not get a meal. Very unsatisfactory for first class. The toddler meal provided was terrible.

Pros: "Everything was really great"
Cons: "I can’t no say anything bad"
Pros: "Waiting in the departure lounce was ok"

Pros: "Never got ticket or email or booking number. Called my bank they said charge still pending. I asked if they could cancel. Bank said yes.

Cons: "Flight attendants acted as though we were imposing. The service was quick though. If they had smiled at the passengers any, I would have given them 5 stars"

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."

Pros: "stewardess was exceptionally pleasant."
Cons: "it took 7hours due to storms"

Pros: "Quick flight. Quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "Snacks are kinda lame."
Pros: "Excellent pre Boarding service and announcements; reasonably comfortable seats; great landing;"
Cons: "There are never gluten free options in the snacks; there were no entertainment systems on the plane - that's not important to me but perhaps it is to others."

Pros: "Crew member who made announcements at boarding was funny."

Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Cons: "I missed the food"
Cons: "Head crew person was lazy and bad attitude. The rest were very good"
Pros: "An uneventful and comfortable trip, well.. as comfortable as any aircraft gets :)"
Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."
Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Cons: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."
Pros: "good value for money. Staff were helpful"
Cons: "A direct route from St John's to London."
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
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: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Cons: "Doing in flight entertainment via app is a fine idea. But your app requires way too many permissions so I won't use it. Otherwise, an excellent airline."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Flight left on time and arrived early."
Pros: "I'm trying real hard not to give WestJet a hard time but my seatmate had genuine mobility issues and the walk to the gate AND out to the plane which was unusually far from the terminal...little help here folks!"
Pros: "Complimentary drinks"
Pros: "I like West Jet over all and it is my preferred airline, as it flies direct between most cities I need to visit. The price is decent and the majority of time the in flight staff are reasonable. I had another flight recently where they were excellent."
Cons: "The flight attendants were a little dour. Whether due to the time of flight or that they were leaving Orlando, I don't know, but I was expecting a little more cheer or at least positivity from them. Also the flight was "running low" on drinks and so I they only came through the cabin once to offer soft drinks, which I needed as I had still to catch a red eye and function during my layover. I wasn't pleased with them. Lastly the West Jet connect app worked just fine for my ipad but despite advertising my wife was unable to get it to work on her computer (mac) despite multiple attempts. If TVs are no longer going to be standard on planes someone needs to be present to help with I.T. when the system isn't working as advertised."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment unless you download their app, however there was no signs or announcements to warn passengers of this. Flight was delayed and they lost my baggage even though it was a direct flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "While the flight took off 30 minutes late, the pilot made up the time in air."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and how accommodating they were of me and of their guests!"
Cons: "There was quite a delay on my flight and I didn’t get an email to let me know there was a delay. Because I happened to go to check in earlier, I happened to noticed the delay. I wasn’t happy about not getting an email. I called West Jet to find out about the delay and it took approximately an hour to speak to someone. When I did, the delay was explained as weather related and the reason for not getting an email was because they hadn’t gotten to it yet I believe. I wasn’t happy with that as a reply. The flight was then delayed again by several minutes. I would have appreciated some form of compensation as I was going to get a lift home from the airport and ended up having to pay for a taxi as I was coming in so late. In all other flights, I know west jet to be quite an accommodating airline. The crew was great, I simply didn’t appreciate how the delay was handled."
Pros: "WestJet Connect, food, fast service on board."
Cons: "Time to take off. A flight attendant told us to go back and register the car seat before boarding, but it was not necessary. Waste of time."
Pros: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Pros: "One flight attendant"
Cons: "Everything. I never right reviews but I fly everywhere and this was the worst experience ever. Delayed flights and bad instructions. Really horrible customer service"
Pros: "The staff were very good jumped in by running with me in a wheelchair till we met up with a cart then next team met up and took me again in a wheelchair down elevator made it just on time"
Cons: "Not having my rides there’s that I set up and almost late"
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant, not full, on time and seats had electrical outlets and USB ports."
Cons: "They destroyed my checked luggage and refused to give me an adequate replacement. They also refused to cover for the resulting damages to my items."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival"
Pros: "On the way back boarding started early and we left earlier than planned."
Cons: "Boarding has become quite the painstaking endeavor since all checked luggage is payed because now travellers try to fit everything in carry ons to save money which leads to everyone trying to put their stuff in the overhead bins. This isn't exclusive to one carrier though."
Pros: "Everything was great!!"
Pros: "Not long to go through checkin."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Flight was no more than average. On time,, clean, decent beverage service, OK landing.
Entertainment options were great! You had my tomato juice choice thank you. The boarding was so fast and efficient that we took off earlier than our flight time. Thank you for allowing a carry on and personal item without charging What could be better: on the flight to Florida both my cup and my friends cup broke and the juice from mine and water from hers leaked. The plastic is very fragile.
For the umpteenth time, the airlines did not pick-up my TSA Precheck on my app boarding pass
The pretzels were ok, but a wider assortment of snack choices would be better.
Cons: "Less Fully packed plane during Covid"
Cons: "Entertainment and food/drinks"
Pros: "The crew was great and separation of passengers unless traveling together was great as well!"

Pros: "Attendant was fun."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, check in and security went pretty quick. The plane was clean and the ride was safe and smoothly"
Cons: "The plane door got stuck and delayed us for a while. It cost $30 to check my bag. They gave me 2 cookies to eat on, one on each flight. Anything else was $10 bucks or so. Even a bag of chips would have been an upgrade. I miss the days when everything wasn’t an extra fee."
Pros: "Flight arrived early. Stewardess although newer was attentive"
Cons: "Nothing the flight was great"
Pros: "Areas of schede with flights. No incidents."

Cons: "Delay wasn’t explained, crew/staff was mediocre"
Pros: "Food was so so on board BA flight"
Cons: "Personel of BA in general very arrogant and think they rule"
Pros: "Free movie. Informative announcements - friendlier than usual. They told us we were going to take off an hour late due to bad weather in Philly, but it turned out to be only 1/2 hour, and we arrived only 15 minutes late than scheduled. Not so bad."
Cons: "The seat seemed a little lumpy or uneven. I usually don't purchase meals, but thought I would this time. However, meals weren't available."
Pros: "Newer plane. Standard American amenities. Fast WiFi and live TV channels."
Pros: "Is not only the most convenient airport for our flying, but we always have a good experience. Loyalty paid. And we are AA clients for more than 25 years. ."
Cons: "I would like if they offer a better quality of drinks (wine, Prosecco) in first class. Now they can buy a French wines for a great Rices"
Pros: "Lots of food and wine/beer were provided at no additional cost and the first checked bag was free as is standard with British Airways. Basically I liked that American Airlines followed British Airways standards for the flight."
Cons: "There were no personal entertainment devices, just a central tv for everyone to watch, and there were no charging outlets. The plane was probably from a museum it was so old. After boarding we sat in the plane without moving to the runway for 30 minutes just making the 8 hour flight even longer. The gate at the Lisbon airport was overly small and restrictive with everyone crammed in and unable to leave after initially entering."
Pros: "Clean airplanes. Customer service at PBI was great. Fake smiles. Charging in economy"
Cons: "No entertainment (tv wasn't working), FAs doing the bare minimum. No help even when traveling with a small child."

Cons: "Took longer to take off than the flight to Buffalo."
Pros: "The flight overall very good and smooth"

Cons: "I do not like nor eat your cookies. You could do better."
Pros: "Easy normal flight"
Cons: "Congestion in Chicago sat on runway 30 min"
Pros: "I was Happy with the free soda I got. That’s about it."
Cons: "Well my flight to Milwaukee was delayed 3 times and then canceled. Thankfully my moms flight with south west had open seats so I bought a ticket on that flight while everyone and there mom was at the ticket counter trying to change their flights. And then on the way back to Florida, my flight was delayed twice, and I almost missed my connecting flight. One of the worst experiences flying. Then I was Told I couldnt Get a partial refund for the flight that was canceled to Wisconsin"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight attends were slightly curt."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff was. All the attendance were helpful and always happy to help."
Cons: "I know this isn’t Kayak’s issue but American Airlines literally forgot to put fuel into the plane. We were delayed for over an hour and luckily I made my connection in Charlotte but only because they held the flight and it was not full. Had it been full I would have lost my seat."
Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "No legroom! Felt like a caged animal. No power for my devices."
Pros: "Smooth flight- communication from the pilot, free beverage, movies, what more could a person ask for"

Cons: "The aircraft was extremely too hot"
Pros: "The quick boarding and kind flight attendants"

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, new plane"
Pros: "flight left and arrived on time. Service was efficient and friendly."

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."
Cons: "Purchased tickets for three of us weeks in advance. Purchased seat upgrades for all three of us for all four legs of our flight. Flight delayed for two hours. When boarding, one pass failed scan. They immediately printed another without comment. While in line to board my friend noticed they changed her seat from 4D to 36F. We returned to complain. They said that seat or middle seat in row 29is only choice. I said we paid for upgrade. They said to ask for a refund at LAX when landing at midnight. Asked passenger in 4D when he got his seat assignment - SAME DAY as flight, paid nothing for upgrade. I signed up for frequent flier program two weeks ago. Will be cancelling when card is received."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite."
Pros: "Getting there safe and sound"
Cons: "We didn't fly FinAir, it was American Airlines"
no booze being served in cattle class; there is no valid reason for this, just lazy flight attendant's union. only in biz class!
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable!but love the direct flight eben though it was almost 2 hrs late"
Cons: "Not enough space. Tv was glitchy. Seat uncomfortable."
Cons: "Being near the back of the plane we missed out on all the food options except for the chicken wrap which was horrible. You ran out of everything else."
Pros: "It was too hot in the airplane, and we were sweating. No leg room, no screens, I asked for water and didn't get"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. Crew was disorganized & inefficient. Announcements were repetive & not helpful. Waited 2-1/2 hours on plane before departure because crew was terribly ineffective boarding passengers that were re-routed from another flight. No weather or mechanical issues, bad decisions."
Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."
Cons: "The main meal was pretty dreadful. Grilled chicken with what I think was mashed potato, but it was difficult to be sure. Watery and tasteless. Accompanied bizarrely by a tomato sauce (which did taste of something). Hard to identify the ethnicity."
Cons: "I fly 5+ times a year and I always have to take Air Canada. It isn't by choice. There is ALWAYS a delay or something is broken or the inbound plan had an issue etc. It could be a lot worse but it could be a hell of a lot better."
Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff. Took into consideration who was travelling together and left a positive impression! Plane boarded early and was loaded and ready to roll AHEAD of scheduled take off time."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and still late, I missed my pick up and had to get home by taxi. It was raining when we arrive, and they was no taxi available at 3am.so we were standing outside the terminal in the cold."
Pros: "Finding my luggage and sending it to me was the best part of this flight."
Cons: "Weather was the issue in Toronto on December 29, 2017. However, We're in Canada, Toronto specifically and we've dealt with weather like this NUMEROUS times. For Air Canada to cancel flights 2 times in a row without any further communications with any of us... To tell us when we'd be rebooked, how, etc. is horrible. I work in the transportation industry which is American based and we can handle this much better than Air Canada. Awful... Wendell/Gate Agent said he couldn't rebook my flight until the 31st, but when I got home I called air Canada and she was able to rebook me on the 30th with no issues. Nonsense. Wendell didn't care, he was tired, yawned in our faces like it was acceptable. Awful service. I'm flying with Air Canada on my way from India in the next couple of weeks I hope I get better service. Otherwise, completion will be my only option."
Cons: "Flight back was OK but flight to Orlando was not. Travelling with s 94 yr old man in a wheelchair. Everything at Pearson is not conduscent to travel with a handicapped person. Poor layout, poor assistance, non caring people, long distances,, and final straw was air canada started boarding without calling for handicapped first. We had to stop them and then fight our way up the aisle with people all in the way. Terrible, just lousey. 3 and a half hours before flight we arrived and didn't even have a chance to get some lunch before flight. I give Toronto and air Canada the worst possible rating of any airport or airline I've ever dealt with. John O"Hearn"
Pros: "I was not given a seat assignment on an early 6:30am flight but was given a first class seat...that was a bonus because I was travelling with my dog so I had ample space."
Pros: "No food given. Flight was delayed on the way there because a crew member called in sick -- making me miss part of my work conference. No entertainment on the way back to NL."
Cons: "Would have preferred Westjet but they do not offer a flight from NL to PEI."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight because an Air Canada representative insisted I could not use my visa debit card for the luggage fee. I then tried to pay cash, but he said that he didn't accept Canadian currency, so I would have to use the ATM to withdraw American cash. I did, and the fees were ridiculous. Then, he didn't have change to break the 40$ i withdrew into his $25 fee. I proceeded to follow him as he walked around for twenty minutes asking random people at the airport if they had change for a twenty. It was very embarrassing and stressful, as I already was in tears from saying goodbye to my partner. Boarding the plane wasn't a problem, but getting on a plane in Orlando, Florida with the air conditioner broken with a plane of 300+ was outrageous. It felt like a sauna in the airplane and the kids were screaming in discomfort, something a 20-something like myself wanted to do as well but had the control not to. It's a shame because we used Air Canada a lot to travel back and forth to visit each other, but with this last trip we will no longer be using this airline and will shop for alternatives who are worth the price of admission."
Cons: "Difficult to cancel flight. Could not do on line and when I called I went through a menu that said that no one was available and to call back later. Didn’t even state what later meant. Subsequently ended up not canceling in advance since very little ability to call back once into work day."
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "air temperature was comfortable, crew members were nice"
Cons: "needed a little snack for kids. delays too long!!!"
Cons: "I made a mistake on my reservation. I thought I made it for July 30tb , but it was for August 30th . They charged over $600.00 to fly home , which is a lot of money to me ."
Pros: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."
Cons: "USB socket broken and non-functioning. Plastic fork snapped and shed tines. A truly ghastly movie selection."
Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "They only had two people at the counter to check in passengers for two flights that took off fifteen minutes apart. they closed the ticketing/ checkin counter downstairs an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off. the same people moved up stairs to work the counter at the gate. it took us an hour and ten minutes to get check our bags. Once we got to our destination, only one of two bags was with us. the airline won't even deliver the missing bag to us. they will only get it to the destination airport if they can find it."
Cons: "Boarding always seems a bit of a jumble. Everyone stands around for what seems like an age. They announce zones 1 and 2, then people with children, then everyone else, but we are all standing around and then trying to queue for a long time."
Cons: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"
Cons: "Paying for checked luggage. You should include that in the ticket price for ease of getting through check in. Plus there was not alot of wickets open during the check in period causing a mass buildup of flyers."
Pros: "Great fast flight"
Pros: "Service, entertainment and comfort were the best features about flying first class when we had actually bought a regular fare ticket!"
Pros: "Streaming movies"
Cons: "Pretty much everything. From boarding late, rudeness of crew, tight space of seats, no airvents etc. 1hour late as well."
Pros: "In wheelchair, traveling alone. Perfect service from gate to gate. Moved my seat to a large one in front, took my carryon for free. All staff nice, great persons."
Cons: "No movies without app and no publicity to download app in advance."
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
Cons: "My daughter has a peanut and nut allergie and air canada still serves them on a plane. I found 2 nuts in my seat ..I had to wipe down my seat as well as my daughters"
Pros: "The in-flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "We avoid Air Canada and after this flight that will continue. First, they wanted $400 for the return trip to guarantee that my wife and I sit together. To guarantee that we sit together and that it would be safe for her 28in femurs it would be $800. Then the Orlando leg of our trip was delayed by two hours, guaranteeing that we would miss our connecting flight. They would not make arrangements prior to departure, nor would they respond to any enquiries from any of the passengers about their connecting flight arrangements. On arrival in Toronto, as we pulled up to the gate, they announced that they had found alternate connections for all but 4 passengers that we would get more information outside. There was nobody at the gate. There was noone at customs. We did not know if we had a connecting flight, or if we had to pick-up our luggage. Nobody from Air Canada gave us any information. We asked security at baggage if we should go on to connecting flights or wait for luggage and were only informed that once we leave the baggage area we couldn't return. When we got to the terminal entrance for connecting flights, we were told (by security) that we could not enter without a new boarding pass. THEY directed us to the line for Air Canada (no indication if we were in the right line, but other people in the line were in the same situation. We finally got to the counter and were informed that we were on the last flight of the night and given boarding passes. Thank heavens that my credit card has priority pass membership. Delays happen. The way Air Canada handles it turned a minor annoyance into a maximum-stress situation. We already avoid Air Canada because they took away almost 50,000 travel miles for not flying for one year. We will work even harder to avoid them in the future."
Pros: "Once we got underway it was fine."
Cons: "6 hrs delay! The flight delays were mostly unannounced and we were sent from gate to gate multiple times without explanation of what was happening. We arrived at 3am."
Cons: "No food options, only beverages. Checked luggage is extra. It's a shame we're constantly losing services with flights but the costs remain the same."
Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"
Pros: "Better than driving 19.5 hours home comfort wise but much more expensive for 4 people. Would have driven if our stay was more than 10 days."
Cons: "- Overhead storage was occupied by someone else sitting in a seat rows away so I had to store my carry on under the seat in front of me reducing my leg room even more than the cramped seat."
Pros: "Crew met all the neccessary requirements at check-in counter and in- flight.."
Cons: "Seating was not comfortable and didn't want to pay extra to secure the appropriate seating.. Ihave travelled with Air Canada Jumbo jet in the past and found it was much better..."
Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."
Pros: "Not certain the type of aircraft used for the flight from Orlando to Toronto, but it had more leg room and more comfortable seats that the flight to Orlando which was on an Airbus. The seats were a wee bit wider and the extra few inches of leg room made the difference between a completely unbearable flight and one that was "poor." (See comments about the crowding and heat.)"
Cons: "We were returning after a cruise, spent part of the day on a shore excursion before being dropped off at the airport 5 hours before our flight. There was no rep at the check-in counter until 3 hours before the flight which meant we had to sit in the terminal for two hours. If they could have had one rep on duty to check in early arrivals, we could have proceeded through security and spent time in the MCO Lounge which would have been more comfortable than the terminal. Once their check-in counter opened it took about 2 hours to clear that and security. Once on board the sold out flight, we were told it was too cold in the front of the plane; while in the back it was baking. For a flight departing Florida, I would expect the airline to have A/C running before we boarded."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late departing."
Pros: "Space between seats in economy class"
Pros: "Crew's smiles and helpful"
Cons: "Very small seats"
Pros: "Flight was early"
Cons: "Drink serve very slowly not that it is important"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Horrible smelly crampy cloth seats, awful food, they don't offer complementary wine and beer for international flights like other carriers, no tvs in the headrest. The flight crew works slower then I have ever observed in my over 200 flights. Took them 1hr 40min to serve what they called "dinner", Delta and others knocks it out in 30!!! And don't get thirsty, You'll die of dehydration before you get a drop of water. They treat ice like its gold. 2 cubes for each drink. If u ask for more u get one more cube. Lol. It was just a horrible experience! I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Cons: "One of the bags came after 5 days as it was not loaded on our departure flight. What was worse, we were unable to get any information. Each time we called we were given conflicting information."
Pros: "Affordable and on time"
Cons: "Bizarre cabin crew announcements and chaotic boarding"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Limited movie selection"
Pros: "The plane was on time. Crew was informative."
Cons: "Could be more careful loading the luggage. Watched one of my bags drop out of the plane while loading and damaged the bag. Not impressed!"
Pros: "The flight was without a hitch. One of the washroom in the plane was out of service but it was a non-issue. My vegetarian meal was the same from my departure flight but still ok. The mac and cheese for kids meal was also not bad. Entertainment was also good. There were a lot of choices for all ages."
Cons: "We waited for a few minutes at the corridor for the shuttle to take us to the plane. Maybe there was only 1 shuttle instead of 2 to take the passengers."
Pros: "Flight,crew, meal and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost on our connecting flight in Montreal. Not happy with that. However, it was delivered to our home 2 days later."
Pros: "Crew amazing. Passengers great"
Cons: "Seats are way too small. Aisles way too tight. Recent acquisition by air Canada must improve passenger comfort."
Cons: "Exit seat wasnt a full exit seat just a slightly larger row and did not recline. Seats were smaller than usual too."
Cons: "We boarded late and arrived late."
Cons: "The only thing Air Transat could do better is punctuality. They do everything else very well and then spoil it with late arrivals and departures."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. It was nice that the crew was overheard offering the emergency seating to passengers with very long legs. And to be honest, our flight into Orlando was fantastic. It was just our flight back to Toronto that we had problems with."
Cons: "Plane smelled. Seats were way too close together. No leg room at all. Also, I know it wasn't air transat 's fault but there was a toddler behind me kicking my seat for three hours. I am also irritated that we had to bring both our passports and our nexus passes because air transat won't take nexus."
Pros: "The crew was professional and did a great job making sure everyone was informed and well looked after."
Cons: "Never made it on the flight and have no help getting any refund or compensation. Unable to make connections to Toronto."
Cons: "absolutely no leg room for an average sized man. and forget about it when the person in front of you puts their seat back. ugh, and the food.....not good and expensive."
Pros: "Contrary to some reviews, I had an excellent experience with Air Transat. I would highly recommend."
Cons: "Thought they were a well oiled machine."
Cons: "It took almost an hour from landing for our luggage to make it to the belt. For a domestic flight, this is really poor."
Cons: "flight was delayed in both directions; very few announcements; the crew were ok, but there was not much service in the hour we waited foe the plane to take off and during the flight"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, sweet and accommodating. I had a seat by the exit which I luckily didn't have to pay extra for and the leg room was ample and really helpful on a long flight. The meal was pretty good, but I really wished airlines would stop wasting so much plastic - I think there should be a way we can support the environment better when flying."
Cons: "I didn't realize Air Transat was a bare-bones airline (not that my flight was cheap in cost) - we didn't have pillows or blankets for the flight (10 hours) and had to pay for them! Seems like that should be standard on a long haul flight. The seats are very narrow with poor back support, and my back started to hurt 5 hours in. Many people were standing in the aisles as it was so uncomfortable. I was very cold throughout the flight, which was another uncomfortable aspect. One of the bathrooms was out of order which resulted in everyone using the same one - you can imagine how smelly and messy it got."
Pros: "Modern aircraft. Leg room was ok. It was a busy flight."
Cons: "Boarding was late but made it in time. Need better seat selections."
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged and it was not handled well at the airport and I have not heard back from the Airline"
Pros: "Staff was helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No room. It was clastertphobic. The seat in front was so close you couldn’t move. The screen for the movie was small and far from the seat and everyone’s head was in the way. Difficult for short people like me to see anything. Not very clean. Not enough washrooms."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, boarding disorganized, very little legroom, only one beverage service for a 5 hr flight, no snacks (pretzels, peanuts etc)."
Pros: "Club class was worth the upgrade purchase. Friendly staff. Continual service. Comfortable. decent movie selection."
Cons: "Screaming baby. But can’t do much about that."
Pros: "Awesome flight and service"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Timeliness. Took off and arrived early. Wonderful bonus."
Cons: "Expensive soggy sandwiches. Cramped seating. One small glass of warm water to drink on a long flight."
Pros: "The plane smelled like vomit from boarding to landing. Seats were uncomfortable. Had to pay $9 for headphones. Food was served at odd times for time zone we were leaving and lights were left on far too much of the time for an overnight flight. I’ve had much better service on other airlines. Staff were pleasant but very impatient."
Pros: "Didn’t get to use my tickets"
Cons: "I will never again book a flight with just fly. Poor customer service. Refuse to cancel or partially refund flight within allotted time the airline allowed. Had to fly earlier as brother health condition worsened"
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "County check-in online and delayed 1.5 hours"
Cons: "Way too cramped a plane, horrible food, crew were not very pleasant. The entertainment system was broken and there was nothing offered to customers. At least give everyone a free drink or something. They told us they tried to fix it but that was obviously not true. And they tell us once were in the air, which is unfortunate because some of us could of downloaded things in advance had we known. Just handled exceptionally poorly. I will not be flying with Air Transat again after this experience. Once was enough."
Pros: "I hope the Air Transat stop cheeting and the coverlet punish it"
Cons: "I would like never to remember Air transit since it is a cheering organization The cause me to loose my very appointment and Let me in Avery bad situation Once I arrived the checking counter they said sorry The time is over. Although I was there one hour before departure time"
Pros: "Comfy seats!"
Cons: "Folding tables were a little dirty."
Pros: "Much more comfortable than our outbound flight, better seats and more space. Movies were available this time versus the outbound flight that did not have an entertainment system. Main meal was nice. We flew "Option Plus". Flight landed on time."
Cons: "Main meal was quite nice but pre-landing snack was awful; pastry with a thin coating of tomato paste and veg."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was well organised."
Cons: "We boarded in time to fly at 10:05pm, however 7 passengers didn't turn up until almost 11pm. We weren't offered any snacks or drinks whilst waiting. Our 7 year old son spent most of this time desperate for the toilet but we weren't allowed. We all just wanted to go to sleep after a long day, I wanted to get to sleep because I faced 4 hours drive home after landing in London. We were served food and drinks at around midnight... I was asleep and was woken by a stewardess shouting "Would you like a drink" (not sure if she was speaking to me - but to be honest on a night flight I expected the aircrew to be a little more tactful). The cabin lights were eventually dimmed at about 1:30 for perhaps a couple of hours, when they were turned back on and we were served a slice of carrot cake for breakfast. The whole trip felt very bizarre, the opposite of the outbound trip where everything felt very special. After landing we retrieved our luggage only to find our cases were badly damaged, we've traveled with the same cases for the last five weeks during which time they have survived without a scratch."
Pros: "Boarding was done efficiently"
Cons: "The seats were awful. Our luggage was severely damaged"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Customer service. My travel companion was seated in a different row, and mid-way through the nearly full flight, the people he was seated with claimed they felt ill and wished to lay down. My companion was asked to stand for 4 hours during the flight with nowhere else to sit while the passenger next to him took up two seats to lay down in to 'recover' rather than recline her seat like the rest of us! That was awful!!"
Pros: "the aircraft was much more comfortable than my seat with WOW air. and the monitor with the entertainment was actually working (was not on WOW air) and I had ear phones which worked with it so I actually could watch it. They gave us free water twice while we were delayed. WOW air charged for their bottle of water!"
Cons: "Most passengers could not take advantage of the entertainment on board. The steward/stewardesses did not come around and offer ear phones even at a price. I pressed a call button to get some water for to take a pill... three times and no one came. I would have gone back to where they were seated and asked personally but the seat belt sign was on... I did not sense there was any tumbulence but who knows. I flew from Paris to Montreal with an hour and a half layover in Montreal so I can connect to a flight to Toronto. Not the airlines fault ... our flight from Lyon was delayed.. but they (WHO the Canadian government) insisted my baggage had to be collected from the Lyon flgiht by myself and re-checked in for the Toronto flight, and thus I had to race across the huge airport to do that. Then I had to go through customs and then security (line ups of about two hundred people and waits of about 20 minutes) . Then I was supposed to catch my connecting flgiht at Gate A67 ... that is the 67th gate of 68 gates at this terminal. By the time I got out of the security line i was hearing the ominous " final boarding call for Air Transat Flight 276 to Toronto"!!!! I am 62 year old semi-fit woman with two bags running the posted "8 minute walk: to that 67th Gate. I made it with three winded young people who similarly were begging the Air Transat staff not to take off without the others of us who were still in the security line but booked on that flght. They waited. Then we could not get clearnance to land in Toronto... and so... we were delayed going to Toronto to... and $30 in parking later... my son got me home. Surely the Montreal Airport needs and "express line" through customs and security for people needing to catch connecting flghts or any flght about to take off! Also the Airport should be providing a trolly or something for passengers who have to board planes in those gates so very far from the security entrance to A gate!!! i am happy to walk it when I was not time pressured but in situations like this one... running could cause someone in poorer health a heart attack."
Pros: "Business class seat"
Cons: "2hour delay!"
Pros: "Checkin attendant set us up on our own bench given the flight wasn't full. Much appreciated rather than playing games with premiums. Nice, new aircraft. Good basic flight services, though the meals were nothing fancy."
Cons: "No pillows available, and blankets for purchase. Airline certainly didn't go to any lengths to facilitate passenger comfort on an international overnight flight. Flight schedule was also kind of weird. Turned the lights on 2.5 hours out from destination for a pass-out-packaged-biscuit meal service. Was not a restful flight"
Pros: "booked the flight based on price and we got more than we paid for. We live in Michigan and could have flown from Detroit, but by driving to Toronto we paid literally half of what some others paid who flew from Detroit. Also found a hotel which offered free parking for 10 days (our return flight got in at 9pm so we needed to stay overnight in Toronto anyway. had plenty of legroom (choose the rear with 2-seats across), food was decent."
Cons: "video screens were small and only over the center row of seats, so it was difficult to see."
Cons: "Having bigger seats/personal space would be nice for such long flights."
Pros: "The overall experience was so bad, that it is hard to think of anything positive.....oh, one thing. The beer they originally served me was room temperature and the kind stewardess went out of her way to get me a cold one."
Cons: "First off there was a 3 hour delay in the terminal at YYZ. Once on board, we sat at the gate for another hour (4 hour delay in total). Finally worst of all, since they are a "discount" airline, they fit in 9 seats per row as opposed to the usual 8 in an airbus 330, and I am sure more rows as well. (3x3x3 vs 2x4x2) I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and I had an aisle seat! The guy next to me was an elderly, portly Portuguese man, and because the seats are so narrow, he was spilling over into my seat (no fault of his own). Neither of us could nap And the fare was not particularly cheap at $580 one way. It was truly horrible. I arrived exhausted and am still recovering from jet lag"
Pros: "On time, inexpensive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable space, narrow seats and corridor, poor food"
Pros: "I upgraded. What a difference!! First time travelling by Air Transat but hopefully not my last!! Great experience from start to finish."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great! Wish we could give more than 5 stars to some of the categories. The crew were amazing!!"
Pros: "Crew were courteous and professional."
Cons: "The seating was extremely cramped, food wasn't fit for consumption, and entertainment..not worth mentioning. These things have nothing to do with the crew, but is directly related to the management and their willingness to annoy and test the tolerance of their customers. Just reflects the tastelessness and cheapness of the airline. Will select other airline next time."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "They asked me to check in my cabin lugguage for free. :) everything was great - great price, great connectivity."
Pros: "Cramped seating. Cost for every thing except coffee, water, and soft drinks."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "The plane sat at the gate for nearly an hour before we left."
Pros: "Options plus upgrade respected during boarding. Food served during flight was decent. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Few update announcements at gate. Almost 2 hours onboard before being offered a beverage. Too many interruptions in-flight (i.e. snack, drink, meal, customs forms, headsets, another snack, captain announcements). Cabin lights turned on and snack served 2 hours before landing (corresponding to a time of midnight at the departure airport)."
Cons: "Bathrooms had no water, for toilet flushing or washing your hands. They knew before they took off. Wouldn't give us bottles of water to wash our hands with, could only use their squirt bottled of hand sanitizer. When I asked why they couldn't just give us water bottled, they told me they could only bring enough water to drink. The flight was half empty."
