Pros: "So much leg room!"
Cons: "The entertainment option doesn’t work on laptops"

Pros: "Was given a quick connection paper which helped expedite things. Customs was fairly quick but got some mixed messages from airport staff as to which line(s) to go in. Fairly smooth process and very glad I travel with only a carryon. Getting my bags would have been a real rush. Entertainment available on smartphone, iPad or lap top."
Cons: "It was a tight transfer to get from one flight to another. Had to take a bus from the tarmac and then walk all the way to terminal two to check in with westjet and then back to terminal three to board after going through customs. Had time for a bathroom break and that was it."

Pros: "Shortest flight in my life"

Pros: "The crew were nice!"
Cons: "But this was like flying in an antique from the 20th century. No screens, AC not working well, tiny cabin. One of the bathrooms didn’t even have a sink."

Pros: "Good legroom in premium economy, power outlets at all seats"
Cons: "WiFi speed was terrible"

Pros: "Crew were nice, everything was on time."
Cons: "Need to use your own device to watch entertainment. No screens."

Cons: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."

Cons: "The entire plane smelt like the washroom, and a mix of engine fuel. I wasn't extremely thrilled about that."

Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"

Pros: "The crew members were very nice and wonderful to speak with. Food was great for airplane food."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi/electronics was down on the plane so we couldn’t watch any movies, but I know that’s not really anyone’s fault. No big deal."

Cons: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."

Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and worked to get us boarded quickly because it was cold outside on the tarmac. The flight was smooth with a good landing."
Cons: "WestJet’s WiFi, to allow passengers to connect to the WestJet entertainment app, was not available on this flight which was a surprise. I don’t always enjoy flying and have some anxiety, so entertainment like movies or shows helps get me through flights. This flight was harder because I didn’t know that option wouldn’t be available."

Pros: "The crew are always great."
Cons: "The past few times my flight has been delayed"

Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."

Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."

Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Food cart passed us because we had our head down... they must have thought we were sleeping, gum stuck in magazine, the amount of ads before watching a show"

Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."

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

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "On time, courteous staff"
Cons: "Seat does not lean back"

Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."

Cons: "Five hour flight delay due to a flight attendant not showing up on time, not taken care of in any way"

Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "No entertainment no food crew m.i.a."

Pros: "Great atmosphere... entertaining staff, very pleasant."

Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"

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."

Pros: "Flight attendants were so nice."
Cons: "There was no info about the visa requirement and that made me stressed out once I tried to check in. Seats were too small"

Pros: "Kayak is cool. Westjet is meh."
Cons: "Both departure and return flights delayed by over an hour. All I hear is the same reason over and over again. Figure it out."

Pros: "Nothing. Lame service."
Cons: "Delays and no compensations"

Pros: "The staff were very kind while still being efficient. It was a pleasant and smooth flight."

Pros: "Friendly people!"

Pros: "Everything was great!!"

Pros: "No stops,"
Cons: "Cramped."

Pros: "Nothing at all. Boarding time changed 3times. Nothing nothing nothing good."
Cons: "Boarding time changed 3 times. 2 hours later than original schedule. Terrible pilot went around city for no reason. Terrified and poor landing skill. I've never had experience like this. Now i only have 3 hours sleep before work."

Pros: "Not long to go through checkin."
Cons: "Everything was good."

Pros: "I forgot sparge photo on the plane and only realized this when i was picking up my checked bag. A crew member was able to get it off the plane and bring it to arrivals for me. I was very thankful."
Cons: "Seating was tight; I was a little too close for comfort to the passenger on my left."

Cons: "Hour+ delay"

Pros: "Cleaniness and timing the most."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better since this is not a short flight."

Pros: "Crew wonderful, cheery and helpful"

Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."

Cons: "I felt a little like a sardine. I didn't eat or watch the entertainment."

Cons: "New plane so there was no internet and I had work I needed to do."

Pros: "I took delta from salt lake to Calgary."

Pros: "People were friendly"
Cons: "Feels like there was no schedule - delayed in LA and the waiting for a gate in TO"

Cons: "The check in area is awful and then you have to go back outside and down the sidewalk to get to security....especially difficult with grandkids. Just when we were about to board, our gate was changed, which also led to a flight delay. I don't order the food as I haven't found it good. And I preferred when you had the TVs to watch. Not all of us are techies. It was also cold on the plane."

Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "LAX is not a user friendly airport. Staff do not know which terminals guests need to go to"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "The best flight I ever had. Seat 1h is the best!!"

Cons: "Connection was two short when flight was delayed 15 minutes would have missed next flight. Had to change to different later flight ended up getting into St. John at a very difficult time to try and find our way in a new place. Flew direct to St. John."

Pros: "Flew Business Class from LAX to YYZ and the flight attendant was great."
Cons: "Flew on an A320-200 and the cabin is a bit dated compared to its US competitors. The inflight entertainment system is dated and needs an upgrade and the food offered was mediocre."

Cons: "evry thimg on time"

Pros: "There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok."

Pros: "There was nothing outstanding on this flight."
Cons: "We were delayed on boarding, they changed the gate number a number of times... it was all very disorganized. Both flights to and from LAX were delayed hours so they had to give us a voucher for 15% off our next flight."

Pros: "movies"
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: "No wasted time, they load you up and get you where you want to be."
Cons: "Be sure to gate check anything larger than a small backpack or purse. There is little room on board for carry-on's"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, old tv screen difficult to use. Awkward seating behind economy plus."

Cons: "Delayed, missed connection"

Cons: "The agents in LAX did not make announcements about a 30 minute flight delay, left a man in a wheelchair in front of where people were exiting, and changed the order of lines 2 minutes before the flight. Rest of flight was very good."

Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."

Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the airplane was really cold. The flight was delayed to the point where we would not have made our connection if our second flight was not delayed. The sound quality of the entertainment was very poor."

Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"
Cons: "Seriously? No free snacks? It's ridiculous that you want us to purchase snacks. Something small should be complimentary. Staff was in ok moods but a little edgy. The air was too cold."

Cons: "Flight back to LAX was delayed an hour and a half. They didn't give us anything like peanuts, cookies, etc. like other airlines do. Just mediocre."

Pros: "Flight crew was nice and accommodating."
Cons: "They should be more thorough in the economy clad cabins to make sure that passengers have their bags put away way before we leave the gate. Flight crew hardly walked through the aisles in economy and were attending to th other cabins more."

Cons: "Had to book another flight"

Pros: "I liked the friendly crew members"
Cons: "1. Could not reserve seat on the return flight and still got charged for it. 2. My seat did not have the new outlet for phone jack and USB charger. I had to use old headset outlet on the arm-rest which did not work. 3. Planes delayed on both directions."

Cons: "We had a 5 hour delayed flight. We received no notification that our flight would be delayed so we were stuck waiting on the airport for 5 hours, which forced us to cancel evening plans with friends that night because the flight landed in Vancouver at 3am the next morning and we didn't get to our Airbnb until around 4-5am. The crew seemed disorganized."

Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."

Pros: "I hated both my trips with Air Canada. I payed extra for a better seat and the one I got was dirty. The tv was NOT working. On top of the 5 hours delay, I hated all the experience. The attendants messages is never clear and focus. It's like Air Canada is employing teenagers with NO work etics or professionalism. I am a frequent flyer and will NEVER flew with Air Canada again. The cheap ticket is not worth the cheap aircraft and cheap service I received."

Cons: "Employees seemed somewhat disorganized. There was not enough space in front of counter for people and there luggage. I ticketing agent would yell from far down the counter "Next...Next!) and finally walk closer so people in line could see/hear them. Then, often that next customer could not get to the counter in front of the agent because of the pillars and other people were blocking them. The space was too cramped. At boarding, Instructions over the loudspeaker were not clear and the video screens contained incorrect information about boarding. At one point the agent came out and yelled at everyone to "get out of line!, we are not boarding yet". I have never seen this process handled so poorly and I fly quite a bit."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight was 5 hours late"

Pros: "grest plane. Comfortable seats even in coach. Good entertainment offering"
Cons: "No food offered (was a red eye so a bit understandable although a bag of peanuts would have been nice). Had to ask for water twice/ crew seemed like they had checked out and not interested in serving anyone... usually foreign carriers are much better than us carriers. Not the case with air Canada (this is our first and most likely last time we'll fly w them -unless they offer really cheap seats)"

Cons: "See above. I didn't fly as I had scheduled."

Cons: "Approx 2 weeks after booking, my flight was cancelled and rescheduled with a 6 hour layover in Newark. I did not fly to Toronto. I contacted Air Canada and was rescheduled again but arriving hours later than originally scheduled. I flew to Newark and connected to Halifax, my destination."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing stands out"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed from lax but we just made the connection to Delhi but our luggage did not arrive with us and was delayed for two days . It was however delivered to our home base in Delhi."

Pros: "courteous, helpful cabin crew on-flight entertainment gave abundant options"
Cons: "flight delayed because departure gate usurped by a Virgin America flight. inadequate seating area; too few seats; passengers boarding VA flight entered through seating area instead of directly."

Cons: "My experience with red-eye flights is that the lights go off, the crew disappears and everyone tries desperately to get some sleep. Not so with these guys - lights on and crew regularly pushing the drinks cart down the aisle. And a lack of free snacks as well (not even pretzels??)."

Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."

Pros: "Email notifications for checking in and delayed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not enough space for over head compartment."

Pros: "There's more leg space and better programming on Air Canada flights"
Cons: "Staff were rude, my headphone jack was broken on our way home, we boarded very late both directions."

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."

Pros: "Team was accommodating and helped with my4 year old kid to make the travel experience easier."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for bags. Policy wasn't clear when purchasing tickets, and was surprised to pay $25 per bag."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food on a 5 hour flight. Carina the flight attendant was the biggest rudest bitchiest women my friend, the people around us and myself have ever met. Never again!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"

Cons: "The landing"

Cons: "The temperature fluctuated like crazy. Upon entering it was fire hot. Then became ice cold then fire hot again. It felt like there was something wrong with the plane. The plane also lqasnt cleaned before we boarded. It just landed with another flight then we boarded."

Pros: "Easy flight good crew"
Cons: "Lost our baggage"

Pros: "Great fast flight"

Pros: "Flight staff was very professional and very helpful to those who asked or presented a need"
Cons: "When arrived I was told flight was oversold. Told person at desk if needed I could offer my seat as I did not have a definite reason to be home . I was SHARPLY addressed by her that there was no other flight that day so not necessary. WHAT?? made no sense and if seat not needed she could have just said thank you. Proper PR"

Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"

Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated and not functional"

Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."

Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "The didn't include a meal or any wine/beer as most international flights do."

Pros: "Leg space, arrival on time"
Cons: "Had to pay for food and cheap earbuds"

Pros: "the flight was on time, without any delay"
Cons: "Variety of movies needs to be improved asap A bag of Pretzels or any type of snack would be a plus"

Cons: "They wouldn't offer me any change of the flight unless I paid more than double what I originally paid for the airfare. I just lost an entire airfare because they're change fee's are too much, and they are also not allowing me to change the flight to cheaper prices that I've found available on both Kayak and Air Canada. I will never fly Air Canada again."

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."
