Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Great attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Everything was good in this flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew were friendly and courteous"

Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "MEL/AKL 7/7 FLIGHT CANCELLED. NO NOTIFICATION SENT. Online system down. .....try later. Had to call Philippines. Eventually got transferred to Air NZ 777.Great flight .... would never use Virgin again. AKL/MEL FLIGHT 13/7 CHANGED FROM 6:30 TO 7:50 TO 8:10. No advice. Online system down. Unable to get updated status. 20mins call to Philippines. No apologies.Ended up on an A330 800 .No USB points. Got a seat, but everything from cushions to Coke had to be paid extra. At be slightly cheaper, but no better than Tiger"

Pros: "Fast boarding, not a crowded flight, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Paid extra for my check in bag."

Cons: "One particular female member of crew could do with a refresher course in customer care service !!!!! I asked for water and she gave me something else, when I told her very nicely that I had asked her for water she began to argue with me that I hadn’t, I thought her very rude, (what happened to the customer is always right) I have been flying with Virgin for twenty years twice a year sometimes even three !!!! and never been spoken to like this from any other member of staff!!!!"

Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"

Pros: "Crew were great. EconomyX is a wonderful seating set up"
Cons: "Very strange boarding. They got us through the boarding process but then made us all wait in the bridge because the plane wasn’t ready. So now you have a plane load of people all crammed into the bridge. Very poor."

Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."

Pros: "I had a comfortable flight to Tobago. Staff was quite friendly and helpful"

Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."

Pros: "good plane and timing"
Cons: "meal was not served according to the request and no sound support from the staff"

Pros: "The flight was a good flight overall. I was able to relax on the flight because I had the option of paying for a seat with more leg space. The cabin crew was pleasant and quite helpful"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that I had to pay for extra leg space. I’ve travelled with other airlines and had to option to choose my seat without any additional charge"

Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"

Pros: "Boarding, flight and crew all great. Having the connecting security pass in the airport which is a lot less busy than the main area. Good info given for connection."
Cons: "Food (main meal) wasnt the best but great snacks and drinks. Having to check in again in gatwick even though jad boarding passes."

Pros: "Met expectations."
Cons: "Things out of your control - time !!"

Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"

Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."

Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"

Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."

Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"

Pros: "Not having to pay for a checked bag. The check-in process was very easy The bag drop-off line was pretty speedy."
Cons: "The airline stewardesses moved very noisy passengers next to me and talked to them the whole flight."

Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Leg space was cramped. Parking was very far.food"

Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."

Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"

Pros: "Didn’t make my flight"
Cons: "If the app didn’t send me a message saying my flight had been delayed when it was in fact on time."

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."

Pros: "The crew was doing best for the circumstances of old aircraft and greedy airline."
Cons: "Westjet planes operating on the London-Vancouver route have no screens at the back of the seats. The entertainment system provided over wifi is impossible to connect (spent almost 2 hours trying until giving up) and internet is not free too. There is only paid food on this flight (~ $15 / meal)."

Pros: "Crew was awesome, very friendly"
Cons: "10 hour flight, and you pay for gross food."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."

Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."

Pros: "On time, friendly staff and service."

Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."

Pros: "Sensible ticket price"

Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."

Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."

Pros: "The staff were super helpful and friendly, and the accommodations were clean and decently comfortable!"
Cons: "The food was very pricy and not that great. Also the boarding took a long time and seemed a little unorganized."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"

Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"

Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"

Pros: "I like the head rests that move and the GF options. The flight attendants were fabulous."
Cons: "No meal for a long trip. 9 hours is too long with out offering food no matter the ticket cost. Also, having entertainment at every seat would be more welcoming"

Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."

Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"

Cons: "Unable to hear updates from the crew. Sounded garbled"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"

Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Cons: "Long"

Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."

Pros: "Cancelled the flight and was utter chaos with no direction what so ever."
Cons: "Staff would not communicate with the passenger's."

Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"

Pros: "Thankfully our flight wasn't 100% full. Our baby got a seat to herself, which allowed her to sleep the whole trip, ans my legs didn't fall asleep from her weight. Blessing! The staff were very accomodating and friendly for parents travelling with young children."
Cons: "Internet was down so not entertainment whatsoever. Planes of any size or length of travel should have at least a few tv's so we can watch something to pass the time. Cookies are surprisingly delicious, but your choice between pretzels and cookies are very limiting (and boring). Another option would be much loved."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Let me see, waited over an hour for a flight to catch up from Ottawa. Now flight to Vancouver over an hour late, gets in about 10 minutes before flight to Hong Kong leaves. So they say will wait for us as flight not full. Nope, flight leaves without 7 of us. Got the " don't know what happened" look. So they give us a $60 dollar food voucher, and take us to hotel because now must wait 12 hours for next flight. Tell us to be in lobby at a certain time to catch shuttle back to airport. Time comes, sorry no room, and buggers off. They call taxis, when drivers find drive for vouchers, tell us to load own baggage! Not likely to fly West Jet again."

Pros: "The flight was ok and the customer service overall good."
Cons: "A bit disappointing that the flight didn’t even have monitors to watch movies , you got to use your own tablets or cell phones. I prefer to save batteries on my devices when I’m travelling :)"

Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."

Pros: "On time. Crew was great"
Cons: "Took a long time for the ground crew to set up the bridge which caused delay in deplaning"

Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."

Cons: "."

Cons: "I'm a bit disappointed by the services provided by Westjet: 1) I never received the confirmation of my fight/booking from Westjet; 2) I was not aware that the connecting from LA to SJ and SJ to LA were operated by different companies therefore I was not able to check in or even to check the gate information at the airport. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA in the early morning 3) at the SJ airport, I was not aware that the flight from SJ to LA was operated by Delta not American airline. However, the Westjet customer services 1-888 number listed in your Kayak confirmation was not a correct number. I even tried to look up another customer services number of Westjet by searching the Westjet website, the number I found was not in service neither. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA 4) At the LA airport I was told that I was not able to board the flight because I did not have the Canadian ETA. they said they would pull my checked luggages and flight them with my re-scheduled flight and will be shipped to the final destination Vancouver, Canada. when I arrived Vancouver, both suitcases were not arrived with my flight. One arrived with my original flight and the second were missing. The agent could not even tell me where the suitcase was. Moreover, the second did not arrive the time I was told it should arrive. My second suitcase was not allocated even before I left Vancouver to Europe one day after my travel. 5) No one responded to the luggage services number provided in the document. I could only successfully login to the link for the checking the status after I returned home in Brussels. 6) I was told that the second suitcase will be delivered to my home in Europe by another company. Currently I'm still waiting for my second suitcase."

Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"

Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"

Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."

Pros: "The crew and their attitude"
Cons: "The planes are worn out with the result that they often have mechanical problems. When the new promised planes arrive this will be a great service. The saving grace of the current service really is the personnel, unlike US carriers if they can help they will."

Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"

Pros: "staff was nice, plane clean"
Cons: "cheap airlines! They do not feed you on an international flight! You have to buy your seat ahead of time, or get assigned. You have to pay for all your luggage. They do not even give one bag on international flight. You can down load an app for entertainment, or rent their ipads. Many of us said, worst customer care ever, and never again"

Pros: "Nice crew, comfy seats, good communication from Captain, efficient boarding"
Cons: "It was all fine"

Pros: "I’m sure the flight was fabulous. You see, I wasn’t on it, didn’t book it and wasn’t even in London"

Pros: "Leg room was good"
Cons: "Food was lacking or you had to pay for it, not great on a long haul. Terrible films And tiny chairs"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Boarding was awful. One queue in a very small area for all passengers. Agent tried to charge us 150 GBP for 3 carry on bags which we had previously carried on for 2 other flights. Felt like extension until I pushed back."

Cons: "Newer aircraft"

Pros: "Exit row window seat with empty row beside me. Next to washroom. Got 2hours sleep. All I can ask for."
Cons: "Business class upgrade for free."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Couldn’t fit my carry on in their plane so I was forced to check it, plane was very cold, very little to no leg room"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Better on board entertainment"

Cons: "Luggage took an hour to get out... unacceptable"

Cons: "Old plane small cabin and seats hurt after 4 hrs."

Cons: "Not a lot of leg room, hectic boarding"

Cons: "The seats for Club class are not comfortable."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane noise was loud"

Cons: "I did not like that economy pax are limited to 1 checked in luggag. I think 2 in more ideal especially for an international flight."

Pros: "Movies."
Cons: "Two hour delayed take off. All waited on the plane. Not pleased."

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 - Friendly, polite, professional"
Cons: "Couldn't see TV screen Seat wouldn't recline Cramped and uncomfortable for such a long flight. When I arrived in Vancouver and picked up my luggage, the wheel and part of the suitcase were gone (broken off) . How do I make a claim for this? Thank you"

Pros: "The staff, the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable- cushioning badly needs replacing. Poor width of seat."

Cons: "3 hours late due to technical issue on the plane. Stuck in the airport for 3 hours. Crew was very apologetic. Wish more could have been done for us waiting in the dark."

Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing."
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: "Very friendly flight crew. The aircraft was very clean and new. It made the flight pleasant."
Cons: "I think a better variety of movies would have made the flight better. I paid $9 for ear buds that were perhaps not worth the money. Most airlines provide free of charge. However the flight cost was less expensive than the competition, so I have no complaints. I will fly again with Air transat"

Pros: "One ground staff member was nice"
Cons: "Ignorant flight attendant, and didn't provide any instructions on how to travel with the baby Served drink, no snacks in whole 5 hour flight, no screens Tight legroom"

Pros: "i think the price was reasonable and it was a reliable and on time .We didn't had to pay extra for our meals and suite case."
Cons: "the seat was too close not enough leg room ."

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: "meals, attendants were pleasant and informative."
Cons: "cramped seating"

Pros: "Seats are very narrow a normal person cant fit in an aisle seat without having a portion of their shoulder sticking into the aisle which means constant bumping. Food was ok at least their was some which was really welcomed. Busy busy flight. Loved that it was a direct flight"

Cons: "We flew Air Transat from Vancouver to London and back as a family of 3. The seats were some of the most cramped that we've been in. Small space for leg room (and I'm only 5'3"), and the placement of the rigid boxes for the life jackets towards the front part of the seat made it impossible to rest your foot on the bar underneath. The arm rests went up, but not all the way back, so that further restricted room and made it awkward for my son to lean against me to sleep. The entertainment selection was OK, however it was the same for both directions, so the way home offered us a much smaller selection."

Pros: "Air transat is a great airline. Everything from the food to the service was amazing. Would 100% recommend them for your next holiday."

Pros: "Friendly staff , comfortable flight"

Pros: "Nice new plane with entertainment"
Cons: "Pizza not great. Too many annoying unnecessary announcements"

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: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Lighting was terrible, movie selection was not up to date and the food was bad. It took over an hour to be served a microwaved vegetable sandwich"

Pros: "the flight arrived and left on time!"
Cons: "I didn't like the food - could only eat one thing on the menu. More wheat free choices are needed. Crew were not quick to pick up trash or provide drinks of juice and water, tea etc. Seating is very narrow (and I am small -don't know how large people manage)."

Pros: "U. Guys do a GOOD JOB GREAT CUDTOMER SERVICE"

Pros: "The flight was not full so I had lots of extra space. Really great value for the plane ticket price."
Cons: "The emergency exit seats were very slimmer than other airplanes. There was a lot of leg room, but at the waist it felt like someone was holding me. (36 inch waist, male). Overall not bad."

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed that the plan was not full and you had room to move."

Pros: "Cramped seating. Cost for every thing except coffee, water, and soft drinks."

Pros: "The crew was professional and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 2.5 hours. They ran out of vegetarian meals before getting around to all passengers with the meal cart, only to have tons of extra meat-based meals they were trying to give away afterward. Very little space for an international flight as well."

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "The plane sat at the gate for nearly an hour before we left."

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."

Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive. Service was also excellent."

Pros: "Quick chech in."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Cushion material Vinyl is hard to sit on. Armrests are plastic and vinyl which were hard on the elbows. Air Canada and other Airlines serve much better food. Tea / Coffee were bad taste."

Pros: "Overall a good and relaxing flight. Crew members were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "No entertainment unless had already preloaded the app."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Air Transat treated us to a very good flight. Flying economy for hours is never the most pleasant of experiences but the return flight was a pleasure. The Airbus plane appeared to be practically new - very clean and comfortable. The flight crew was a nice mix of experienced and fresh - I heard one crew member welcoming her colleague to her first flight. They were cheerful, helpful and gracious. I was able to move to a center row of three empty seats and stretch out to my hearts content and my partner then had two seats for her comfort. We expected a budget flight with no service but instead were offered drinks, a sandwich and a snack. One of the best international flights I can remember."
Cons: "The usual stuff - reclining seats really squeeze your space, fussy babies that after fifteen minutes you wish would just go to sleep..."

Pros: "The flight was a great value"
Cons: "The toilets were very unsanitary by halfway through the 9 hour flight"
