Cons: "It's all right for a short flight"

Pros: "Flight was on time. For once."
Cons: "Flight attendants were making ridiculous juvenile jokes over the intercom."

Cons: "Missed my connection"

Cons: "The non-ability to change seats to unoccupied seats with early check-in, without paying a $35USD upcharge! Plus the cost of checking a bag at $30. Ridiculous."

Cons: "did not like having to go further west before heading back east wasted a lot of time. and no entertainment unless you pay for it, seriously?"

Pros: "Left on time, pleasant crew"

Pros: "Everything about the flight was fine except the delay waiting for the new crew."
Cons: "The 90 minute delay taking off. The difficulty getting WestJet Connect entertainment software to work with my laptop. I finally gave up & watched tv on my phone."

Pros: "Staff were very friendly and efficient, no issues with boarding or in flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we were notified ahead of time so wasn't a problem."

Pros: "WestJet’s checkin online system is very quick, which save a lot of time. It’s so much better than air Canada in any aspects"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in the plane"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No wifi on the plane, entertainment system down"

Pros: "Fun, friendly crew on a boring routine short haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down."

Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."

Cons: "Crew was not the usual happy Westjet staff.Grumpy flight attendants.I don't think any of them ever cracked a smile for the entire flight."

Cons: "flights was delayed but for understandable reason. Medical emergency. Can't rate food. None reminded."

Cons: "So there was a problem with the aircraft. Some cargo nett8ng was broken so they had to move the baggage from the rear to the front hold. The pilot can on to inform us of what was happening, assuring us that our baggage would arrive with the flight. B7t not surprisingly they lied and about 30 ppl didn't get their luggage. It never made it on the flight and won't be until the following morning. So I have no clothes. No jacket for sub zero temperatures. It would great if they could at least tell us that there will be a problem. Not lie I'm not impressed. I'll do my best not to fly westjet again."

Pros: "Smiling faces and humor from the crews."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."

Cons: "No tv in back rowa"

Pros: "Loved the chopped leaf options for food. Had a tasty wrap and glass of wine :)"
Cons: "I wish the staff were more helpful regarding my infant carrier & stroller as I was travelling solo with a 3 month old & struggled to manage things. Eventually another passenger assisted."

Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "I traveled from Vancouver to Edmonton today on WS 320 and one of my luggage was delayed. I had to wait through many phone call queues to get in contact with an agent and none of them were very useful. I was informed that my baggage would arrive in Edmonton at 5pm and be contacted to arrange delivery options but I had not heard anything from them and it is already past 8pm. I had to stay at home to wait for the phone call which resulted me in canceling my evening plans. The luggage contains frozen home made goods and various food items I brought back from my recent trip to Taiwan. With the food not being in a freezer for over 12 hours at this point they've likely all gone bad. I am extremely displeased with the bagging service especially when I had PAID to get my bags checked. I was told that packing food in checked bags comes with a risk and is a game but everything in life is a risk and I find that excuse from an agent very unacceptable. I am also very upset that WestJet does not offer compensation for food damages because the foods in my luggage are definitely worth over $200 and some are not obtainable in Canada."

Cons: "I was given a ticket with the seat 3A (one of the plus seats); I didn't ask for it or pay for it, I just got that seat when I was checking. After I found out it was a plus seat, I acknowledged to nearby the flight attendants and nearby passengers I didn't pay for this, that there was a mistake, and I could move if there was someone who did pay for it. What I received from the flight attendants are accusatory remarks/comments about how shouldn't be there because I didn't pay for it (after I acknowledged this before anyone even had an issue about it) and passive excuses that didn't make much sense when I asked them why there ws this issue in the first place. I was fine with moving seats from what I was initially assigned to, I was fine with being moved twice thereafter (first moving to 21E, then to 23E). What I was not fine with was 1. the accusatory tone by the flight attendants that I tried to take someone else's seat 2. even though I was given the seat by the person at the check-in desk when I didn't even ask for it and 3. after I was the one who initially brought up this issue in the first place and was willing to changet seats with he rightful passenger. Please learn to take responibility for your actions and mistakes and errors rather than blaming it on a passenger who just wants a safe flight home. Thanks."

Pros: "Very good chicken baha salad meal but expensive."
Cons: "Had to change seats a few times to get a screen and sound that would work. Screens tgat had streaks or flicker and/Or sound that was dead or staticy.."

Cons: "Having to divert to Calgary for broken radio. I’m positive there is enough redundancy in radio system to be down 1 radio."

Pros: "The staff was outstanding from the minute we arrived in Hamilton till we got to Edmonton. So impressed with the customer service."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Staff were so friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Crew overworked but pleasant and doing their best. Self check in works well with assistance"
Cons: "Management decisions meant assigned crew arrived after our flight supposed to depart. Needed 1 more person to service passengers. We waited a long time after serving started to get served. We did not know that food could be preordered online and served soon after takeoff. No TV screens on back of chairs...had to rent device to see movies. Have app but not able to book and get points. Wrote to WJ for help but oo response"

Pros: "food, flight crew, leg room"
Cons: "crying babies"

Pros: "Charisma and fun is the name of the game! Good work WJ"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that we had to continue to show our travel documents when asked to check in on the app. Make me scan my passport so there is an image on your server. You can verify that way or make everyone check onto a kiosk. Which you had not enough of."

Cons: "Late boarding and then late departure After landing, baggage delayed as well"

Pros: "The reliable, friendly crew"

Cons: "We flew from Toronto - Abbotsford with a stop in Edmonton. There was a 1 hour layover in Edmonton before the Edmonton - Abbotsford flight left. Unfortunately, the plane arrived in Edmonton 30 minutes late, and rather than wait 5 minutes for the passengers to disembark from the Toronto plane and board the Abbotsford plane, WestJet decided to leave all those passengers behind. There were no other flights available until the evening, and we were stuck for 8 hours at the Edmonton Airport before we were finally given a flight to Abbotsford. Never again will I book with WestJet."

Pros: "It was a good flight. Comfortable and on time."
Cons: "I rated food low as there wasn't any nor did I expect it. No problem."

Pros: "The snacks were good"
Cons: "They lost my checked sleeping bag which forced me to buy another one before my backpacking trip. They refused to refund me for it costing me an extra few hundred dollars to replace it. To include I paid an extra eighty dollars for my trip because apparently I requested window seats which I wasn't provided for my return flight home! Be prepared to lose your luggage and don't expect a refund!"

Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"

Cons: "My flight was not actually booked going to Edmonton and I had to rebook it at the airport to go home. Coming back to Fort McMurray my flight was also cancelled without telling me and I had to buy another ticket."

Pros: "Food, attendants, comfort, entertainment"
Cons: "Manual boarding and missing one of my luggage"

Pros: "Regular seating on this West Jet flight was great, very comfortable with ample room."

Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "Baggage handling"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Thank you Sohiwe"

Cons: "Way to small seating area"

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Flight was very late (about 90 minutes). Not good, especially after a long flight to Van from New Zealand."

Pros: "Crew was great. Especially Reagan"
Cons: "Poor choice of movies"

Cons: "Over 11/2 hour late with no explanation."

Pros: "The extra leg room that you have to pay for."
Cons: "Insufficient padding in the “premium” seats. No decent meal selections. The wrap that I had was primarily a tasteless piece of flat bread."

Pros: "Boarding easy & fast"
Cons: "Plane lat, extremely hot, & only 1 explanation with no updates"

Pros: "I liked that they didn't make a fuss when boarding that I wasn't in the section but needed to board earlier due to a knee injury."
Cons: "That they didn't really stop long enough for me to ask for a snack. They asked the other side but as I was on the window seat, I couldn't seem to get their attention."

Pros: "Staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."

Cons: "Very long delay not fair to passengers"

Pros: "We got home early by about a half hour and the flight was smooth and quick."
Cons: "Didn’t find the crew to be as friendly as I have had in the past. They wanted us to pay for headphones. Was travelling alone with an infant makes coordination etc hard. Didn’t offer help or anything."

Cons: "Our flight got cancelled in toronto Lester B Pearson Airport due to a snow storm and we were stuck in the airport for almost 24 hours and we werent even offered a hotel for the night. So we decided to book a hotel for the night through Kayak and paid over $200. Went to the hotel and were told there were no more rooms available until the next day. We called kayak customer support and they wouldn't refund our money!! Horrible experience never again! Never flying Air Canada again !!"

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"

Pros: "on time"

Cons: "Aircraft was switched for maintenance. Incredibly late arrival"

Pros: "I watched incendies and lion and both were great films so I commend your film options. The crew were all pleasant and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "The chairs have no low back support. I rolled up my sweater and put it behind my low back because the chair is so poorly designed. It seems to encourage a slouched position. maybe you have it that was to encourage people to upgrade their tickets. I hope that's not the case as that would be cruel."

Cons: "Flight late (30 minutes) as mostly with Air Canada, fortunately not cancelled this time as also common with Air Canada short distance flights Not enough space in overhead compartments for carry on. The lady at the boarding makes it sound like that is the passengers fault."

Pros: "Buying wine was a good idea. It's a good cure for frustrations."
Cons: "I had trouble checking in online AND printing boarding pass at kiosk. Plane left 45 minutes late. Boarding was chaotic. Headphones did not work with entertainment system. Drink order was incorrect... I just had to pretend I was on crappy public transport for two hours for a one hour journey. I laughed out loud when they announced on flight that Air Canada was voted best North American airline. Riiiiight."

Cons: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."

Pros: "Video screen in seat back so I could watch movies"
Cons: "I forced to check my carry on bag despite the fact that there was room in overhead compartments. Consequently my bag was damaged when loaded onto plane, or when unloaded onto baggage carousel. Disorganized loading of passengers onto plane."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Poor snack options"

Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."

Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid 14$ for wifi and it kept kicking me off all the time. Also when we landed in Edmonton we circled their airport for half an hour then finally landed and we were stuck on the Tarmac for additional 45 min while we waited to get towed to our terminal. All in all terrible first time flying with air Canada and will never do it again. West jet flight I took to my destitnation was awesome"

Pros: "There was a hour delay but once on board the crew and flight was excellent."

Pros: "Decent movie selection on one of my flights"
Cons: "I had booked my Air Canada trip and had a single stop-over while I switched to a different plane. Both of these planes were Air Canada. I Even though I made it through Customs in the shortest time possible, and back through security, I still managed to narrowly make my second flight. They were final-calling my name and actually taking off earlier than expected. Had I been 2 more minutes late, my flight would probably have taken off. I didn't check any bags either, so had I checked one, I don't think I would have made my second flight."

Pros: "Got free internet for their troubles."
Cons: "They boarded us already a half hour late on our plane. Then after we were all boarded they decided to tell us that the pilots had not even landed from their previous flight yet. Once the pilots finally got on board the aircraft they still took another 40 minutes to do their routine checks. Almost two hours later we finally took off."

Cons: "I found the crew members more involved in there own personal conversations rather than the guests.... Trying to get there attention was virtually impossible...."

Cons: "Plane way too cold, seat would not recline"

Pros: "The service was fantastic flying over night is never fun but the staff made the plane very comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was very cold"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."

Cons: "So uncomfortable"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"

Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."

Cons: "Six hours stuck at an airport with no where to get decent food and ended up sleeping on the floor. There should not be a stop to flights at night time."

Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."

Pros: "On time/boarding by zone prevents unnecessary gathering at the boarding area."
Cons: "Air Canada Boarding agent was rude when I inquired about taking an earlier flight. Her reply was, "The boarding for this earlier flight has now closed- even if I were able to get you on, you would be paying a change fee". I'm tired of the attitude of many of the Air Canada boarding agents."

Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."

Pros: "Seat was broken, you can not recline seat. Flight was full, I was told so you have to sit on same seat. Secondly, there was one kid who keep crying yelling like hell, big time headache. It was about 6 early morning flight came at airport by 3:00am thought will sleep on air. On boarding, only drinks was offered, not even cookies or snacks there."
Cons: "Broken Seat No cookies or nuts, only drinks For kids or infants- airline should give them last seats or offers Air buds."

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "No cookies or pretzels."

Cons: "Air Canada has the worst customer service. Hate flying with them"

Cons: "They lost my bag which was full of important clothing I needed for interviews this week."

Pros: "Liked the smile in the faces of the crew as they served the snacks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour"

Pros: "Linda the Air Canada check in Agent at the Priority desk in Calgary was the best Check in Agent I have ever dealt with in over 20 years of business travel. I was with my family and she even made a special effort with my two Granddaughters that they are still talking about today. She is the reason Air Canada still has ALL of my business every year"

Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "Fast boarding"

Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride. Small plane size did allow for quick retrieval of bags at final destination."
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and pleasant . The crew is friendly and acoomodating. the fligt back to Edmonton was on time. Boarding was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Flight to Vancouver was delayed for half an hour. It's a good thing I didn't have a connecting flight to catch."
