Pros: "Gate crew was informative but the news they had to give us was extremely disappointing!!"
Cons: "It would have been better had the flight left for Calgary so we wouldn’t have missed our connection to Cancun and then had to drive to Vancouver and spend the night in a hotel and leave the next day ultimately loosing an entire day of our planned holiday."
Cons: "Hello, I just needed to voice my dissatisfaction with this fight. I’m not sure if every Westjet flight I was lucky and had amazing crew members or if the staff on this flight was having a bad flight. Our flight was delayed by 75min. The flight crew did not attend to any requests from the customers for the 75min we were on the tarmac. I asked for headphones and the crew member look agitated I asked made a remark about how nobody buys them so she didn’t know how much they are. She said she would come back with the price, and did not. I had to wait for the beverage cart and then order them again. Then I asked for an additional can of ginger ale. The gentleman said he’ll need to come back (as he was cleaning the garbage). He never came back. I had to hit the assistance button again and got the original woman. Once again agitated and when I asked she said to wait for the beverage cart again. After another 10-15min they started the beverage service again. On previous flights there were delays, shorter like 30min westjet crew members gave free headphones. And those are the kind of experiences I’ve come to expect from westjet. Not the free aspect but flight crew that care about the customers. The entire crew on this flight was agitated and annoyed from boarding and it definitely showed. Small things like even a smile or even sorry everyone, would’ve gone a long way. But when the crew doesn’t care the flight gets 10x longer, and when the flight is already delayed by 25% of the flight duration it comes to a point where you’re counting down the seconds to get out. The delay was unfortunate and out of the control of the company and crew but that doesn’t mean the crew couldn’t still make it into a memorable experience for the guests."
Pros: "The crew took care of my wife and I when our flights were accidently cancelled. Literally were the last people on the plane. It was unbelievable to see their efforts and patience. Completely grateful."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"

Pros: "West jet staff helpful on plane accommodating my husbands eed for more space."
Cons: "Our seats were pre booked by west jet in a window and center seat my husband is 6’5 and needs to have an aisle seat. We were charged to change these."
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: "On time"
Pros: "We took off on time and landed a little early. Crew were very nice. I couldn’t judge the entertainment as I didn’t have iPad with me to connect to the wi-fi and watch movie. Plenty of snacks. Worth the cost of the flight."
Pros: "The friendliness, the options through the app with movies etc"
Pros: "The overall experience was great"
Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and the staff were good."
Cons: "It was 30 minutes late to board because we were waiting for the crew to arrive from another WJ flight and to transfer to this one."
Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"
Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."
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."
Cons: "no entertainment I didn't order food so can't comment on this The seats are too close for comfort"
Pros: "Very smooth flight."
Pros: "Although you have to pay for food onboard, it was really good. WestJet Connect provided good entertainment- movies and Tv shows all free- that made the 7 hours pass relatively painlessly. Cabin crew were awesome."
Cons: "Nothing. Exceeded my expectations"
Pros: "All good,a little delay in my transfer as a result of original plane engine problem ,however they rectified that in a reasonable time frame. I will fly with you again no problem."
Pros: "Arrived early"

Pros: "Newer plane so more leg room. Left on time."
Cons: "No inseat entertainment."
Pros: "Great service all around."
Cons: "We sat across an aisle150 feet from the boarding gate and never heard any pre-boarding announcements. There is too much carry-on luggage, coats and backpacks in the overhead bins. No room left if boarding near the end."
Pros: "Standard things like cleanliness in bathrooms and friendliness of crew were good."
Cons: "It was definitely colder than usual on the plane."
Cons: "Of the four flights I took with WestJet this holiday, 3 were delayed. The flights were frigid. On this flight the agent at the gate was very rude when I asked about checking my bag, lecturing me about the size of the bag and insisting she would have to charge me if it was a full flight, which she said it wasn’t. It ended up fitting just fine in the overhead. Totally soured my experience. I will not use this airline again."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 3 hours."
Pros: "Westjet connect on board. Snacks. No problem to get our bags."
Cons: "The waiting on the tarmac ( 1:00) with a young child. We arrived 2:30 later, so the desk for rental cars was closed."
Pros: "WestJet was Great again.... Boarded promptly, and a smooth flight, with friendly staff"
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: "Staff friendly and efficient."
Cons: "No Entertainment system which was a huge deal for my partner, but I read my very good book and talked to my very nice seat partner."
Cons: "ran out of food only had 10 tablets to offer customers on a packed plane"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Equipment problems, flight delayed and equipment changed, bumped from a decent (preselected seat) to the back row next to the toilet. I respect mechanical and other problems happen and are not always in the control of the airline, but the customer experience certainly is"
Cons: "Snack was very minimal with no selection or option to purchase more."
Pros: "That flight left without delays"
Cons: "very old airplane, no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. they could update us before, while we were waiting, to download it, and not after we boarded. seats don't have much leg room, and not comfortable. they didn't give any food or drinks during the flight, and there was no button to call the crew and ask for it."
Pros: "Exact on time."
Cons: "Refreshment should have more choices"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Gates were changed and I was not informed. Flight was almost an hour delay. My luggage was never even put on the plane. So I cam from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to Yuma, AZ and have no baggage, no clothes, toiletries, nothing! It is 9:14pm and won't have any luggage until MAYBE 7-8pm Monday night. It is Sunday night now. Not happy!!!!!!!! No food on the flight!!"
Pros: "Everything except the delays. I like the new app on your phone or tablet to watch movies and TV (and it's free now to watch movies like on AC!). I approve of this change westjet. The staff are very good at informing customers to make sure they download the app before boarding. However because people generally suck and don't listen there is always someone complaining about not having the app on board afterwards."
Cons: "Unfortunately this flight number is always delayed, WS269 Friday YHZ to YYZ. This is the flight I always pick for work schedule compatibility, but have found it to be delayed 30 min to 2 hrs the last 4 times I've taken it in the last 3 months."
Pros: "New plane and friendly service."
Cons: "More leg room would be appreciated."
Pros: "Really great attendants. Friendly and humorous."
Cons: "They took the tablets pretty early it felt. 45 minutes before we landed. But other than that, great experience!"
Pros: "Both going and coming was excellent, even with a bit of a delay got in before time, good service, friendly, spacious, I cannot say that of any other airline when flown economy. I really enjoyed the flight and was impressed. I have to ask that you keep up the good work and you might just be NA best airlines, unlike Air Canada, they suck. LOVE WESJET-bit pricey at times LOL"
Pros: "Fortunately the plane was not crowded at 9pm and they made up for the 15 minute delay and arrived on time. Everything was pleasant and as expected."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not so much entertainment like music or movies to watch. Why do you need to download the west jet apps just to get something to watch doesn't make any sense..."
Pros: "How extremely nice the flight attendants were. They went above and beyond their scope of practice to ensure each person on the flight, felt as comfortable as possible. Thx #Nancy and #Heather"
Boarding was seemless. As for the flight itself, we deiced the wings twice. Had to come back to check for mechanical issues leading to our flight arriving 3-hours late to destination. As for food choice, do not choose the pancakes as it was similar to eating sweet microwaved porridge.
Buying a ticket and checking in does not guarantee you a seat. They allow you to check in early, but the no extra cost seat selection must be done within 24 hours of the flight. Otherwise, they put you on standby. They also put the details of this "in the fine print" according to the agent at the gate. When I checked in yesterday, the app said that seat selection was unavailable UNLESS you wanted to pay extra 🤬. Yeah, maybe make this automatic standby BS more visible to customers.
The landing was a little rough fit the size and weight of the plane we made it .
Cons: "Late departure as YVR would not allow us to land due to weather. Late arrival as YVR would not allow us to land as too many flights in the pattern."
Cons: "Flight was unable to land in Vancouver due to aircraft problem, and diverted to Seattle. Spent the night there; still waiting to get back the next morning. Serious disruption of business day for my wife and me as a result."
Cons: "Never made it to the flight..."
Pros: "Amazing crews"
Cons: "Less option in special request in online. Gates and planes are not updated when applied online"
Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Being 6' 4'' becomes an issue with modern seats."
Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "The plane was too small to ever be considered comfortable. AC needs to stop using this aircraft."
Pros: "There is no built in entertainment system. Download the app on your phone to be able to watch movies in flight."
Cons: "Not much room in economy class."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled due to wind. 35kts, didn't seem like a lot. They also said that Vancouver airport was experiencing bad weather too, but it seems like it was ONLY Air Canada flights that got cancelled that day. The next flight they wanted to put us on was 2 days later. We missed our connecting flight which cost us $3300 to change dates on."
Pros: "There seems to have been improvements to the check in and boarding for disabled disabled passengers like myself at Pearson. Much easier to drop off luggage and move quickly to the wheelchair pickup area. Staff were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Spacing between seats continues to be a problem especially for disabled clients. Because I was travelling alone, I was asked if I would move to accommodate someone with a pet carrier that would not fit under the seat they were in. I declined but wondered how they were allowed to board with an oversized case. Also seemed strange to ask a disabled passenger to move."
Pros: "Take off and landing smooth and relatively smooth in between."
Cons: "6 hour flight no food included. Came by twice for beverages. No entertainment. Probably the first time in 10 years I've been on a flight without any screens for entertainment. Goes without saying, no USB plug in."
Pros: "When the flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues my flights from Victoria to Cancun was rerouted through Toronto with free hotel where my brother and I shared a bottle of wine at Air Canada's expense..."
Pros: "OK service"
Cons: "was not offered a direct flight to Vancouver when it was obvious that I would miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "Entertainment Was limited. Ran out of options for food because of flightbdeparture delay we were over 6hours on flight and many were hungry."
Pros: "The crew were really great and very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The plane on departure was extremely cold for almost the entire flight. The in-flight entertainment system didn't work on any of my electronic devices (3 cell phones and a tablet we're all attempted but none worked)"
Pros: "The air crew was absolutely fabulous coming home. Couldn't of been nicer or kinder. Excellent work gang. Very much appreciated. This applies to Toronto to tokyo crew likewise. AC has very special people representing them. Thanks."
Cons: "Well, food was iffy. But provided, free and good intentions. I just gave it away to grateful seat mates."
Pros: "Seats comfortable"
Cons: "No overhead bin for centre section of row that my seat was in made it very inconvenient. It seemed to take far too long to offload the plane at the gate; we waited over 10 minutes for the door to open."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Crew were good."
Cons: "We left Rome over an hour late due to a computer problem that had to be reset. The pods in business class were the old style and not very comfortable for sleeping."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "Being crammed into a tiny seat without any outlets or monitors. Being hit with a ton of extra fees for seat selection and baggage. If you dont pay to select your seat and wait 24 hours before the flight to do so you risk losing your spot on that flight, such BS. Im surprised they didnt charge me a seatbelt usage fee."
Pros: "I really liked the entertainment. Not knowing the Toronto airport I did ask a few crew for help where to go for customs and continuing flight. We got a ride to get closer to customs. After going through customs we asked again where to go for continuing flight and finally got to our location and they were just starting to board. Felt a little too rushed no time for bathroom break."
Cons: "Leg room not very much with bag in front under the seat in front of you. Legs fell asleep and knees locked really needed more room for legs."
Pros: "Old plane, high changing fees. Air Canada sucks"
Pros: "The entertainment options were free"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, boarding was a mess. We waited around and took a bus to a small area. Upon boarding the flight attendant slammed a overhead container door on my head, the flight landed late and the bags took an hour to come out. Overall a negative experience for us. We expected this out of westjet."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The crew was absolutely terrible and very rude"
Pros: "On time. Clean plane"
Cons: "Miscommunication with luggage No food included but at extra cost No entertaining at all! Only through wifi in your own device and you have to download an app BEFORE boarding for it to work but yet, no one tells you"
Cons: "I tried to call your airlines to reserve a spot for humanitarian supplies. I run a rescue for dogs in Cancun. I could never get through to anyone and there is no info on your tickets about the cost of a third bag. I was charged an extra $500.00 for two extra bags that were carrying donated supplies to help the animals. But your airline made it a useless endeavor because they ended up costing more than they were worth. The people at the gate were unbending and I'm so disappointed that it is more important to you to make money than help non-profit organizations. I have run Isla Animals for 15 years and have had much help from kind airlines, I won't be flying yours or recommending yours to any dog lovers."
Pros: "Excellent service throughout the flight"
Cons: "it was an old plane, the bathrooms were without water. No individual screen. Flight was delayed, I lost my connection flight. They gave one three hours later."
Pros: "I had leg room where I was seated. Short flight."
Cons: "I had to be moved a second time during my travel. No entertainment. So far, the most uncomfortable connection Ive had in my trip. The emergency door i was sitting next to was leaking water, which kinda worried me."
Pros: "I am glad to have this opportunity to express what I was thinking when I got off the plane on Sunday. That was one of the best flights I have ever had. The flight was so smooth, take off, during flight and landing. Koodoo sto our captin! Also, I noticed the sir quality was great. I'm didn't feel dry or irritated by the sir as can sometimes happen. The crew were pleasant and I liked my seat. Hope the flight back is as enjoyable."
Cons: "Nothing of import."
Pros: "No entairtainment of any kind on an oversee flight ??? Flight attended had s bad attitude"
Cons: "No entairtainment of any kind on an oversee flight ??? Flight attended had s bad attitude"
Pros: "I had a five year old and an eleven year old traveling with me and was able to board early and get them settled before everyone else got on."
Cons: "We didn't see much of the flight attendants and my grandson became ill. We could have used more water throughout the flight as that may have prevented him from getting sick."
Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."
Pros: "Customer service was bad. I had to wait long line to check in bags. they took like 20 minutes to handle one transaction. I had to line up some where else to pay cash for my baggage after I checked in my bags. When I lined up somewhere else, a lady told me her computer was down and her printer was not working and told me to go to the next line. I lined up and waited for 20 minutes on the next line. after she finished, she told me to wait for one minute. I told her i can't wait or i would be late for the flight. she helped me and when i realized if i lined at immigration i would miss the flight. i was smart enough to ask for passengers in front of the line to let me cut. i was lucky enough they let me and i made it through."
Cons: "Captain's announcements were inaudible from the wing seats. Seats very cramped - I'm only 5 feet tall and barely had room for my legs. Also, unable to see safety demonstration as the seat backs were too tall for a short person to see anything but the back of the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The boarding was painless. We could board early since we were in Zone 1."
Cons: "Not enough space for overhead luggage. The crew looked overworked and stressed. Had to ask the stewardess 3 times for the same order. The seats weren't really an upgrade, it was just a Window and Aisle seat with a table in between. The service was not any better than economy. The Upgrade didn't feel like an upgrade. We will definitely think twice before booking with Air Canada."
Pros: "The flight number was changed, but the new flight got in 45 mins earlier which is always a good thing. Every seat had a screen which kept me entertained."
Pros: "Flight crew including cockpit were kind, courteous, professional, appreciative and much appreciated."
Cons: "Ground crew - grouchy, uncooperative and down right unprofessional!!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The food options were very limited. On such a long flight, I would recommend stocking up more."
Pros: "Nothing to like about this airline. Horrible people especially in toronto, really unhelpful, extremely rude."
Cons: "Air line decided they didn't want me to take my connecting flight. Removed my luggage without consulting with me. Offered me a disgusting hotel. Forced me to pay out of pocket for food, taxis, transfers and my own hotel choice. Staff were so rude. No explanation to why they removed my bags. I made it in plenty of time for my connecting flight but airline had just decided. No staff member was interested in answering my questions or helping. They all just wanted to sod off home. they just didn't care."
Pros: "Really took advantage by jacking the prices on return flight changes caused by their cancellation of outbound due to weather Because I had two one way flights, the changes required for the return flight were my problem"
Cons: "Ripoff 500 and two hours of hold time to get acrewed"
Pros: "all went well -timely flight, smooth, courteous and efficient staff."
Pros: "Their was a two hour delay, the planes cabin was at about 55-60 degrees and due to bumpy ride...service was delayed (obviously not the fault of anyone). Just overall, uncomfortable experience!"
Pros: "My air Canada app. Worked great for entertainment"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for over an hour before we could take off The plane needs a good cleaning. Small size bits of garbage on the floor next to the wall. It's getting missed ... Needs to be vacuumed"
Pros: "The flight left on time. The crew were polite and professional. The pilot didn't hit any bumps in the air."
Cons: "I don't like flying in general. It is one long hassle from what you can carry in your luggage to the cramped quarters. It is still faster than driving."
Cons: "My passport was still valid but didn't have the 3-6 months left on it (a rule I didn't know about) and was told about this at the air canada counter without any concern or direction. Was in shock."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We did not know about having to download the App for the entertainment option. This would have been good to know before hand"
