Cons: "Some sort of entertainment. More comfortable seats."
Cons: "No Food to buy available on board. We thought we could buy something. The coffee was good."
Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."

Cons: "Aisle seat did not recline on my first flight"
Pros: "Great crew and great flight"
Pros: "On time departure. Organized check in"

Pros: "Left on time or mighty close to it. Arrived on time. Safe and mostly smooth flight. Flight attendants and pilot was friendly. Liked the price for a direct flight."
Cons: "Tight squeeze in the seats in terms of having the back of the passenger in front of you right in your face practically."
Pros: "The ease of boarding with very nice staff!"
Pros: "Crew was nice enough and there was more leg room than on some flights I've been on."
Cons: "The power outlets didn't work and it was a long flight so my phone died and there was 0 entertainment provided, made for a long, boring flight. Ended up trying to sleep most of the time and missed the food service. The plane was also weirdly cold."
Pros: "Airport staff went above and beyond to get my mother through the airport. We had a tight transfer and they helped us make it to the gate on time."
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Cons: "WestJet seems unable to stick to a schedule. Three of my four flights were delayed and a connector flight through Toronto was cancelled altogether just after midnight, leaving me stranded at Pearson Airport. The ground crew were disorganized and unable to provide clear answers – other than their complete assurance that WestJet bore no responsibility for providing hotel accommodation."
Pros: "We upgraded to Plus when we checked in and it was totally worth it. Extra space, food, drink. It was great!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant."

Pros: "I loved flying West Jet and would happily do it again. The food was good (preordered) and we got to our destination safe and sound which is always much appreciated. Our flight was on time and we had no trouble boarding or any technical issues at all."
Cons: "I didn't like how internet/any entertainment had to be pre paid. We already pay a lot (even for the food...$9 wraps!), so to charge for literally everything seems a little much. Also not a fan of the reclining seats. We have zero leg room to begin with, I don't need some stranger crushing my knee because he wants to attempt to move back. I just shoved my knee into the back of the chair so he couldn't move back anymore."
Cons: "the 40 minute delay in toronto.not so bad in middle of day but when the delay means we get home at 1:00am this is not so good"
Cons: "Asked to have the opportunity to have an empty seat between us in order to accommodate our 11monrh old daughter. Many others were allowed the opportunity to switch. We were forgotten about and not allowed to switch. Would have been more enjoyable for all had we been given this opportunity."

I saw a lady were coming back from England and she was tired and had another connecting flight that was worry will lose it , Another lady was coming from Nairoobi .Her kids were waiting for her . It was very bad publicity for your flights. But your staff and flight was very good. I hope you can solve Luggage problem. Thank you."
Cons: "Waiting a long time for my suitcase to arrive."
Pros: "Very disciplined and hard-working crew did their best to keep everything under control and moving on schedule. Boarding was busy but fairly well organized considering."
Cons: "Flight had an abundance of minors and babies at no fault of anyone, just unfortunate. Lots of crying, screaming, fidgeting and puking. Customers were pretty impatient in the early morning as well which didn't help the situation. Not sure if snacks or refreshments (other than water) we're handed out in a 4.5 hour flight as well."
Pros: "The little snacks we had"
Cons: "Losing my luggage"
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: "The view of the ocean and all the lakes and ponds coming into St. John's."
Cons: "You don't have any good connections from New Brunswick to St. John's."
Pros: "West Jet left on time. ."
Cons: "A 4 1/2 hour flight turned into close to 5 hours. Considering that a person has to be there well ahead of time, go through customs etc. a cup of coffee and 2 cookies and no entertainment anymore, it's a long and boring flight ."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "For a flight that lasted close to five hours it seemed a long boring flight."
Pros: "Personable and professional staff. Great service"
Pros: "Staff tried to do what they could but unable to really do anything. They only repeatedly messed up boarding passes causing me to miss flights."
Cons: "The planes were not in working order. The first plane had a hole in it from hitting something the flight was completely cancelled only one out of the two people at the counter was helping a line of people, but due to a system error people were not checked in . I had to get 4 different print outs of my boarding pass. the second aircrafts air conditioner didn't work, the third plane the back door would not close. I spent over 12 hours in the airport and couldn't get home till the following day . The airline did not have a hotel reservation ready as promised and had to wait an additional 15 minutes while they were telling me I was responsible for my own room. Eventually they got me a room and gave me a voucher. I would never fly or recommend West Jet i just don't feel safe."
Pros: "Crew were all very welcoming and polite"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were pretty pricey."
Pros: "the crew are always great. the flight was on time and fast!"
Cons: "the whole "put your own tags on the bags and load them". we spent 5-10 minutes trying to figure it out. There was someone that came over to assist us and it was still not user friendly. there were not in flight television system. I guess I am spoiled now."
Pros: "westjet connect to watch a tv show or the news or something"
Cons: "They automatically gave me the window seat"
Pros: "The lounge was fairly comfortable. The staff was very nice, however, our flight was delayed 5 times! We were supposed to leave at 3:30 but we didn't leave until 7:00. Crew on the plane was super friendly and I think the pilot was great too. Skilled and always kept us informed of what was about to happen. Was only just over a 2 hour flight so no real food was needed nor was there entertainment. The 'in flight' menu was reasonably priced. Staff on the other end was helpful as well."
Cons: "Small plane, seats and aisles. But hey, you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Bell's live TV is probably the best feature!"
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."

Pros: "The flight itself was very good The plane was quite new. Very comfortable seats and plenty of leg room with nothing obstructing the foot space. Good inflight entertainment and complimentary earbuds. Flight attendents were capable and friendly, food service better than average."
Cons: "Check-in at the Air Canada counter was chaotic, a long lineup with only one agent available to direct the crowd. She coped well considering there were multiple people asking questions at the same time. There was a small sign instructing persons who had obtained boarding passes and luggage tags to go to baggage drop but no signs or separate lanes to indicate where that was. Very disorganized. At the gate it was the same scenario. Agents at adjacent desks were calling boarding instructions for multiple flights at the same time. Our Vancouver flight was never actually announced but passengers all started lining up because the stated boarding time had passed. It was impossible to tell which flight was calling for which boarding zones and everyone was wondering out loud "what is going on here?" Once finally aboard we sat on the runway, our flight left an hour late and we missed our connecting flight in Vancouver which, I realize happens. However..."

Pros: "Space for my legs, good movies and food. Smooth ride. It was my first trip with the airline and i loved it"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 hour to get my bag back. They were having trouble to find it. Because i waited an hour they gave me a $10 voucher to eat at the airport"
Pros: "The crew was so attentive and respecful! Kept pouring wine as we wanted (without saying a qorf or requesting it) this is how business class should be. I love air canada business class. Super hyper recommended. Food was ok, in spite it eas a short flight. Crew was very very nice. ❤️"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The attendant at the checking was very friendly and courteous, the website information on the luggage weight was incorrectly worded and we had to transfer some of the clothing to a carrying on bag. The wheelchair attendant was very friendly and courteous she made my mother feel relaxed since it was her first time traveling alone as a disabled person."
Cons: "A snack should have been served. Only juices were served. An announcement should have been made for layover passengers to purchase food at the airport if they are unable to purchase on board with a card."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Departure was orderly and staff interactions good"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Love a direct flight into/out of Budapest! Rouge flights have an app you can use on your device with a small playlist of entertainment options. Otherwise, you're stuck with whatever you brought with you."
Cons: "Wish there was a notice of our flight progress somewhere. I felt embarrassed to ask the flight attendants who had to do calculations on the spot instead of being able to just check it on the app."
Cons: "On the way to Barcelona, We didn't have access to any online media during the flight because their wifi wasn't working properly and we couldn't download the app. On the return, we downloaded the app prior to boarding but the app failed to work properly!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "They only had two people at the counter to check in passengers for two flights that took off fifteen minutes apart. they closed the ticketing/ checkin counter downstairs an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off. the same people moved up stairs to work the counter at the gate. it took us an hour and ten minutes to get check our bags. Once we got to our destination, only one of two bags was with us. the airline won't even deliver the missing bag to us. they will only get it to the destination airport if they can find it."
Pros: "All was well. Thanks"
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Cons: "Not aconfortable plane"
Pros: "Boarding process was good"
Cons: "No free snacks offered"
Pros: "The ONLY part of flying Air Canada that I used to like was your partnership with SAS, over the past ten years I have lost more airtravel points through Star Alliance troubles than I could have made in the decade before. Luckily when I fly from my birth place of St. John's NL, you're ground staff are the absolute best! I can give "shout outs" to each and every one of them. From those ready for retirement to the new staff just in from "who knows where", they get the whole "customer service" priority that your airline needs to focus on. Your management in Halifax "Sharon" is out of this world too, other than that whether through Lufthansa, Air Canada or anywhere I would travel, seeing that red leaf on your wing would make me ashamed to be Canadian."
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat to ensure leg room, all I got was ear ache! The flight - although half empty had no place for my briefcase, but I was "ordered" to push my sealskin bag under the dirty greasy seat in front of me. When I requested they store it upfront for take-off & landing - the french female steward started flirting with the man sitting next to me and didn't even offer a response. When drinks came around - I was handed a half empty glass with juice on it's exterior and borrowed a napkin from the next seat. Later I did get a napkin "thrown gently" over the person she enjoyed speaking with. I was happy to wait until connecting passengers disembarked before the local traffic, but was appalled when the more senior female steward stopped a local passenger who I know has anxiety about flying - to insist she let the other passengers off first. Air Canada needs to be educated on what human behaviour entails, before they can graduate to customer service. Together with my first name, you can know my last name is Floyd"
Pros: "It's been a long time since I flew Air Canada . Great flight, blanket and pillow provided - seats, movies and and a lot of snacks. Worth the money for a long flight :)"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and I had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No snacks offered with drink. Boarding wasn't well organized. Toronto airport is horrible... long lines at customs and security caused me to miss my connection for the second time in a row."
Pros: "we sat on the airplane for over 3 hrs , waiting for someone to clean the waste water from the plane.! it was very alarming the lack of service , never seen anything like that before !"
Pros: "Air canada needs a serious serious overhaul of the way they treat their customers especially those working at the Toronto airport I find their employees have an "entitlement" mentality that other carriers do not Customer service seems to be a priority not talking to your coworkers about the weekend while serving your customers"
Cons: "There was one employee who suggested to take an earlier flight and was very helpful Little things go along way"
Cons: "Spending the entire flight with my knees wedged into the the back of the seat in front of me was painful. I'm 6'2" which is not unusually tall. So greedy and careless for Air Canada to put the seat rows so close, selling an extra row of seats while causing pain for all the tall passengers."
Pros: "Timely departure. Great landing. Fantastic flight crew."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. And the navigation system should be more intuitive."
Cons: "Staff was rude. And I was seated next to an alchoholic"
Pros: "All was good as it was not a Rouge plane."
Cons: "Needed a bandaid as got a paper cut but it took forever for the stewardess to get me one.Had to remind her again."

Pros: "Smooth flight and on time"
Cons: "No extras (free alcoholic beverages, movies, music. Kind of like flying in a military contract flight"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and didn't even tell me a reason. They couldn't even make reservation for hotel. Hotel sent me back to airport because i didn't have voucher which AIr Canada guys said they can't make one? Everything didn't make sense. And they told me not to come again. They took like... whole day to book another flight. And i had hard time understanding what they were saying."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Very slow boarding."
Pros: "Movie selection Crew was kind"
Cons: "Check in was over 45 min Space between seats: I'm 6" 3" and leg space was a problem Food was mediocre"
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Friendly and helpful staff. Smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "We didn't like all the walking to get to and from the plane in Terminal 2, Heathrow. Anywhere else in the world would transport people by bus if it was going to be a twenty minute walk to the departure gate."
Cons: "They try to board by groups but unfortunately they get the entire plane trying to stand in there group lines and don't load anyone for 15 to 20 mins. It congested all the walkways and people just change to the shortest line"
Pros: "My family and I flew Air Canada to Narita in Japan and back. The service was outstanding, the flight was without delays and the cabin and restrooms were clean."
Cons: "The food could improve, not asking for gourmet but a but more quality in their offering"
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "Delays--nearly an hour with both flights. AC was not working well on CMH-Toronto leg. We were told one unit was out."
Cons: "My Mon couldn't fly because I never have noticed that she needed a Canadian Visa. She came from Mexico with her American visa and the experience buying a ticket with this airline was a nightmare."
Cons: "From LGA to Toronto the input jack for the headphones was all messed up and I kept having to fiddle with it to get good sound."
Pros: "Way better then driving."
Pros: "the short flight"
Cons: "the comfort and location of seats ran around for days acquiring a doctors note for easy access seating. grateful for the refund but would've rather paid and actually been accommodated."
