Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Pros: "Seats were pretty roomy in coach."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Flew Alaska Airlines back to back bright had food service. This flight was initially moved back 30 minutes from when I first booked and then delayed twice at the airport. Created a much longer layover and resulted I having to change other reservations at destination."
Pros: "The crew was polite and kind and prompt :)"
Cons: "a fluffy blanket! XD just kidding, that's asking a bit much :D"
Pros: "Pleasant trip"
Cons: "The ticketing agents were excessively slow."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "decent leg room and the headrest could bend to allow you to sleep upright."

Cons: "My seatmate was a snob but you couldn't control that!"
Pros: "New and clean aircraft."
Cons: "Very few movies available. Huge delay to get off ground."
Pros: "Plenty of space. Arrived early"
Cons: "Boarding process is too slow due to passengers stowing carry on bags. Need a improved boarding process"

Cons: "We were delayed 50 mins on the tarmat. We made up a lot of time in the air but was still frustrating."
Pros: "The cabin crew on Alaska Air was great. Efficient, helpful, and even on holiday flights! The food selection was average."
Cons: "Boarding would be so much easier if the ticketing agents,.gate agents or a person standing at the plane door would enforce the size of carry on bag rules, and take the bag from the passenger, before they board the plane. that would decrease the waiting time on the plane, significantly. Leave the flight attendants out of it, and make some one else, on the ground, "The bad guy". With all of the time standing around waiting to board, there would be plenty of time."
Pros: "Everyone super friendly no other complaints"
Cons: "Boarding delay. Also asked last minute before boarding for passport in a new line so had to wait in the back. Consider some of us are crunched for time when we get to destination (rental car before closing, etc)."
Pros: "Warm greeting at KCI airport from the attendants of Alaska Airlines. Short flight from Seattle to Portland."
Cons: "Changed flight status from a direct flight to a 2 hour layover in Seattle, especially with a small child. No soda for drinks, just alcoholic beverages and juice. Flight a little noisy."

Pros: "It was so easy to find my way around because everyone was so nice and helpful even though I was late I got there on time thanks to the staff. The flight was fast, smooth, very enjoyable. Thanks Alaska air:)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I picked a isle seat instead of a widow seat so I know better now because I will fly again"
Pros: "This is my first trip on Alaska Airlines and it is now my number 1 airlines. They were welcoming and everyone was smiling. Wow what a difference."

Cons: "Outlets only for first class. No hard alcohol, still had beer and wine, though."
Pros: "The flight price was very reasonable. There was a ton of leg room between your knees and the seats. The seats seemed thin when we got on the plane and I was worried at first but they were actually reasonably comfortable! The crew was very friendly and helpful! And free wifi for messaging services was awesome as I was able to iMessage my family during the flight! Didn't try any of the good while on board."
Pros: "The entire crew seemed very pleasant and helpful. I know their jobs are extremely stressful, but they all maintain a very professional demeanor. May God bless them and keep them safe on all their journeys."
Pros: "on time; (small) free snacks; enough room; modest free Internet capabilities (movies) -- download gogoinflight app before takeoff."
Pros: "Easy flight. Boarding was fine and the crew were friendly enough. The steward didn't come and see me much and I think I had one little snack and one beverage."
Cons: "No entertainment but I didn't really expect it on such a short flight."
Pros: "Boarding was a few minutes early (versus the typical few minutes late), it was easy, plenty of room/clearance for my stuffed roller carry on, comfy seats, great service throughout. I am not often flying into or out of cities that Alaska services but when I am, I almost always chose to fly Alaska :)"
Pros: "I need to give a shout out about the staff and the passengers. My two young grandsons flew for the first time. Due to plane size we could not all sit together. Several offered to switch seats to accommodate."

Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Pretty spacious"
Cons: "Guy next to me all up in my space"
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly flight attendants, and great amenities on board (charging stations at seats, free in-flight entertainment on your device, & affordable wifi)."
Pros: "Great new modern plane with power at every seat!"
Pros: "The gate agents and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "When I checked my bag. They had to hand write a slip for the next leg of my flight (Calgary to London). This added about 10 minutes of time. It's 2017, how can it still require paper write up??"
Pros: "On time departure & arrival! And love the ability to connect to wifi on board."
Cons: "Nothing it was great. I rather enjoyed my trips and the airline had the facebook messager on there wifi for free. Made it 2000% better."
Pros: "The flight was OK except that they ran out of food to sell and apparently you could order ahead of time but at least for us in the back of the plane was nothing left."
Pros: "i really liked everything about the flight. great meals, comfortable seats, friendly service from MCI to PDX."
Cons: "sadly my luggage/cargo which had fragile placards posted on it still got damaged. it was oversized (113 linear inches) and i tried to protect it as best as i could with cardboard and plastic wrap but somewhere between TSA manually inspecting it in kansas city and inflight, it got broken, so hopefully i find a way to fix it."
Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Lots of flights leaving the same time through side by side gates - and all delayed. yuck"
Cons: "Despite the staff who unloaded me in the isle chair having a great attitude, they were inexperienced."
Pros: "Decent leg room, very nice staff, the plane was in nice condition and we left on time. Also, I had no problems with my luggage. I didn't utilize your entertainment nor did I get food. Wish there had been an N/A option in the survey"
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I didn't like"
Pros: "Very pleasent and we'll up kept airplane with plenty of over head storage"
Pros: "I like flying Alaska because their employees are always helpful and professional. Checking in for my flight is effortless with the Alaska app on my phone. I really like that all I have to do is print my bag tag and drop my luggage at the desk. I don't ever have to wait in long lines except for security at PDX. I fly often and will continue to fly Alaska!"
Pros: "Inexpensive flight Nice desk people they did give us regular updates and clear expanation of why we were delayed"
Cons: "They took our small carry on bags planeside with a PROMISE to return planeside in Calgary - but didn't - they came through just like a checked back 25 minute wait in Calgary and one of the LAST bags off the flight! Plane was 20 minutes late leaving"
Cons: "I had two different trips planned with Alaska. I ended up staying in Kansas City, and Alaska cancelled my flight. Said the only option I had was to pay $500 for a new flight. I found a delta flight form $300. Not the kind of service I had expected from this airline"
Pros: "Nice plane. Nice people."
Cons: "Boarding slow. $17.95 Internet -- YOU KIDDING ME? This is 2016 people. You canceled my return flight and made me stay another day. Airport terminal too small and packed."
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Pros: "Plane was clean and roomy. Crew was awesome very friendly."
Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and took great care of us. The food was surprisingly good and our seats were comfortable. It was worth upgrading to Premium for the extra legroom and other little perks."
Cons: "I really can’t think of a bad part...the customer service at check in was so easy; our checked bags were automatically transferred in Calgary, the crew was very friendly, food was good as was the wine and beer."
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Cons: "Dinner service on the Calgary-London flight started very late and the cabin lights weren’t dimmed for several hours on this night flight."
Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"
Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"
Pros: "Great staff. Overall good considering the cheap flight."
Cons: "No free meal, the pizza ordered was terrible. No tv, only iPads for rent."
Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers at both the Mazatlan end and Calgary were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"
Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."
Pros: "THE YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Pros: "Folks are nice.."
Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."
Pros: "Always friendly and helpful...great to see and experience!"
Cons: "Computers down delayed checkin. Items stolen from checked bags. Flight delayed. Lost bag on a flight with no transfers."
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"
Pros: "Easy low volume airport palm desert"
Cons: "I am a tall person and the seating is just too darn close with absolutely no leg room for a tall person to fit comfortably in the seat. In fact, I could not even get the tray/table to come down level because my knees were too high and there was not enough distance between myself and the passenger seat in front of me to allow the tray table to come down completely and sit flat."
Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "Normal flight"
Pros: "It wasn't full and there was an open seat beside me"
Pros: "Always great crew members!"
Cons: "Power outage in Kamloops, causing a little boarding and seating issues, crew handled it well!"
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew pleasant and polite. Only complaint is being charged extras for baggage. I suffer from a handicap/ injury and as a result do not like to carry luggage on to the flight as it causes me issues. It is frustrating to buy a ticket and always have to pay an added fee when I get there. I would pay more or pick another airline if baggage was included for me."
Cons: "Pay for check baggage. Because of a handicap I prefer to not carry baggage onto the flight. See above."
Pros: "Direct flight and was cost effecient"
Cons: "Gate construction made it hard to find where to go"
Pros: "Crew was great! I've decided on flights over 5 hours, upgrading as much as you can is important."
Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"
Pros: "Roast beef sandwich was great"
Cons: "Just because the crew is having a bad day they shouldn't take it out on the customer"
Cons: "Did not get TSN for the entire flight, even after we entered Canadian airspace."
Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"
Cons: "We were 3 hours late taking of so I missed my connecting flight. The staff are summer staff so know how to do very little. We got poor advice on changing flights, interminable slow to hey through to west jet themselves. The manager at the airport hid away until 15 minutes before boarding the late flight when he was due to come out with food vouchers, the catch, you had to leave and go back out through security to use them. Seriously, who would do that 15 minutes before boarding? And then my bag didn't arrive. ..."
Pros: "I like the staff and services"
Cons: "It's all I like west jet"
Cons: "There was no entertainment. But wifi was available if that is what you consider entertainment."
Pros: "Love it. Friendly and nice. Thank for making this flight rock!"
Pros: "Great staff. Smooth flight. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Is any plane seat comfortable??? Need better ergonomics for knees and necks!"
Pros: "Staff were amazing. Friendly and helpful, having the TV's made the flight go by quickly. I don't fly well, I often get sick and claustrophobic so having that distraction was awesome"
Cons: ".nothing!! It was fabulous!!"
Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "No place to charge phone on any flights"
Cons: "Seating shoulder to shoulder with other passengers."
Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."
Pros: "After several eye rolls, I was offered taxi vouchers to and from our hotel - I had several bags and 3 sleeping children and i needed help getting to and from the hotel, more than what would have been offered with the shuttle service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no indication of the delays from the crew. I was emailed that we would be having supper on the flight - but myself and my 3 kids were told there were not enough meals and we were unable to eat anything other than some small snack items. We missed our connecting flight and given the late hour I would have appreciated some extra help with my 3 (sleeping) children exiting the plane - I asked for help but none was given."
Pros: "I was very disappointed to find out that wifi was not on my flight. The staff on the plane was very robotic. Came across as miserable"
Pros: "The crew, who were not West Jet crew members as we had to take another airline's plane, were very attentive and the food was good."
Cons: "The Plus seats were worse than the West Jet outbound flight. Plane was older, the seats hardly reclined (which is why I originally paid for a plus seat) and the plane was not cleaned well. I went to use the washroom before take-off and it was not cleaned properly and my tray table had food stains on it."
Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Cons: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The trip took about 48 hours. After a cancelled flight I got no hotel discount. Several flights were delayed or cancelled and in the end I ended up just going to a city 3 hours from where I live and renting a car to drive home. My luggage still hasn't arrived. This was the worst, most stressful travel experience of my life."
Pros: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"
Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."
Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."
Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."
Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"
Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"
Cons: "We got held up in Calgary due to the fact they lost everyone's checked bags then we finally got to LA they still had lost them. They told us they would have the bags to us in a matter of hours but it took 3 days."
Pros: "but only a few minutes late arriving ..."
Cons: "Boarded on time then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for the water truck."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."
Pros: "Crew was great!! Smooth landing!!"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"
Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"
Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."
Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Pros: "On time good staff"
Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours for Macanical problems (not weather). The plane itself was so small I couldn't even stand in it. No room for carry on bags and honestly was treated very poorly when asking questions about the delays. No one at gate check ins to talk to until 5mins before boarding time. Out of all my years traveling I've never been more poorly treated."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."
Pros: "Loaded quickly,"
Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"
Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."
Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"
Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"

Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Pros: "Traveling fast"
Cons: "To pricey"
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Kind flight attendants and quick early arriving flight"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was food"
Pros: "Got us here early, smooth ride"
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "The plane was flithy. The crevice between the seat and the wall of the plane was caked with filth. The beverage served was lukewarm water, with no other choices. The plane was uncomfortably hot."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Like all airlines, need to expand leg room and chair size"
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined in transit to Kansas City. The help desk basically asked me to leave my bag behind for three weeks to see if they can fix it. They had no means of looking after the contents. Was I suppose to carry my content???This was ever so frustrating since the suitcase was brand new. Then the lady told me that my warranty on the bag will cover the damage. It was obvious she was not willing to help and did not have a clue what she was doing thus I just logged the complaint and had by suitcase sorted out the San Francisco Airport. They were very helpful."
Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"
Cons: "there was no outlets on the flight for me to conduct business and to use my laptop to access wifi."
Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"
Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"

Cons: "I slept most the way. So which I had my pillow and blanket. Lol"

Cons: "Three gate changes prior to departure"
Pros: "On time!"

My whole trip was absolutely terrible, worst experience ever!!!!"

Cons: "Single older woman harassed by arrogant middle aged male TSA agent in Kansas City over something so simple as a can of hair spray! Had to return to ticketing to check my bag ($25!) and go through security twice. Everyone except this one man was very nice. (Suggest minor personnel adjustment?) Wait for baggage at Eugene was way too long considering we were the only flight arriving in the middle of the night and the airport was otherwise deserted."
Pros: "Everything ran on time. No weather or maintenance delays. It was a great experience to fly on Christmas Day!"
