This Delta flight was operated by WestJet .. we didn’t know until after booking. Delta advertised free baggage check however WestJet charged us a total of 120 dollars for this. This also didn’t allow us to do online check in using WestJet app as there was an outstanding fee for baggage.. I had to hold for over an hour on our outbound flight to do this. Returning was the same although we decided to physically check in early to avoid this hold time. When we checked in the agent told us we had been put on the standby list and only just made the flight. So despite prepaying for the tickets and reserving the seats we still didn’t apparently have a guarantee of being on the flight.. very concerning. He assigned us other seats and then actually had to ask us if we had paid for our baggage.. again very strange. We paid and didn’t complain as it wasn’t his fault. We did over hear other travellers with the same issue though. Airlines need to be more organized in my opinion.. apps that need upgrading and the apparent overbooking of flights makes just the journey more stressful knowing that there is a possibility that you may not get on your flight despite prepaying and reserving and paying for seating and baggage.. what is going on?
Cons: "Less announcements about masks we get it We don’t need instructions on hand washing Drink service needed"
Cons: "No leg room on this plane"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"
Cons: "We read in the Delta onboard magazine about Delta’s commitment to women. Yet Delta coverups a rape by one male employee against a recent immigrant in a Delta vehicle. What say you?"
Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
Cons: "I adore delta! Great airline, I fly delta whenever possible"
Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"
Pros: "Everything except the delay was fine, not extraordinary."
Cons: "7-hour flight delay. If this was a European flight we would have been entitled to at least $250 for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything to compensate us for a 7hour delay, which was ridiculous."
Pros: "The gate crew were very responsive and told us accurate estimates about the delayed departure time. They even distributed snacks for us."
Cons: "The flight crew was subpar. We had been delayed by 2 hours and they did nothing to assuage anyone’s frustrations. Service was minimal and lacklustre. In flight WiFi didn’t work with any streaming service. Plane was noisy and old. Seat was about worn through. Truly the worst in flight experience I can remember having domestically."
Cons: "13 hour delay"
Pros: "Good service great aircraft"
Cons: "Takes along time to get off airplane with everyone getting their bags from the overhead bins"
Pros: "Delayed, packed, bought a sandwich! Good sandwiches!"
Cons: "Packed and delayed"
Pros: "The crew were nice."

Cons: "A Boeing 757 should not be used for a 6+ hour flight"
Pros: "Never made the connecting flight."
Cons: "Departure delayed by 1hr30"
Pros: "No surprises. On time. Courteous. I suppose the most amazing thing is their app. It tells you when your bags get on! Also I forgot that I had a knife in my pocket. I ran back to the desk and she went back, found my bag, put the knife in there. Wow. What service. Also I notice that Atlanta is a lot nicer than it use to be. Attendants are more friendly and loading is more organized. Way to go Delta."
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "It’s become a mediocre airline."
Pros: "I was very impressed with the flight attendants. They were very pleasant & very attentive to the guests. The premium seats were very comfortable. The only disappointment was the chicken dinner but the ice cream dessert & refreshments were wonderful."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."
Cons: "Can you make the seats any smaller? Cabin space is tight and for people who suffer from claustrophobia it makes it difficult traveling. More cabin space with raising the fares would be great!"
Pros: "Nicest staff"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Delta planes are typically nice and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times."
Pros: "The seat was comfy foe the whole 20 min flight"

Pros: "Good staff, plenty of room, comfortable flight, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some passengers behind me didn’t get snacks and drink"
Cons: "About 7 of 8 crew staff was ladies in their 60’s. Grumpy old women. In case of emergency I would help to help them instead of crew members helping me off the plane."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "I was rerouted."
Cons: "No one would reissue me a ticket for the next flight. Delta and West Jet kept saying the other company should do this, and in the end no one did and I had to purchase another ticket."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable"
Cons: "Had to check in my carry on because there was "no space" left but after me were some people who could go in with their carry ons"

Pros: "Loading process, seats and drinks were great"
Cons: "No TV on back of the seat but thankfully the ladies next to me were very entertained"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Pros: "Got grounded for five hours stuck on the plane."
Pros: "Helpful staff. Never felt rushed if I had a question. The special meal (VLML) was excellent. Tasty, filling and nutritious Plenty of foot room in economy."
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"

Pros: "Crew professional and courteous"
Cons: "5 flights cancelled, poor communication, total chaos in rebooking, lines 5 hrs long to get rebooked."
Pros: "I rated entertainment as 1* as there is no N/A option. Flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Cons: "My seating. Location. We checked in 22 hrs before the flight and received C4 c5"
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."
Pros: "the flight crew made our flight very comfortable and pleasant. One flight attendant ( didn't spot her name) had such a gentle sense of humour while serving us-it was nice. Flight attendants at times seem like strict teachers - so it was nice to smile and laugh - especially now with such fear of flying due to COVID-19"
Cons: "Boarding process could be a little smoother and less frantic"
Pros: "It is a no frills airline. Cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"

Pros: "Well organized. Helpful & courtesy."
Pros: "Quick smooth flight. We even landed early. No delays no problems. I even had seated in an empty row"
Cons: "I don’t like the charge for checked bag. It encourages people to bring too many and too large bags onto the plane."
Pros: "Crew accommodated seat change. All courteous and friendly staff"
Pros: "I like that my original flight was rescheduled but I needed to arrive in Vancouver for my connection so I'm happy they moved me to an earlier flight. Very accommodating!-"
Cons: "Entrainment on flight"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat space was a bit tight"
Cons: "Little more space and leg room"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable because of the head rest that is attached to the seat. However the staff and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "The crew was polite, even with the numerous delays. Other than that, the multiple delays (3; 8:30 -> 11:30, 11:30 -> 13:05, 13:05 -> 15:30) rubbed me the wrong way and lessened my experience with West Jet. Kayak was very responsive and reliable on their end."
Cons: "West Jet; the delays which took around 6 hours from my weekend trip."
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost 4 hours, which we got notified over 12 hours prior departure time. Offer different flight options, or maybe switching the airline without an extra fee. Compensation!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and good snack options"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Pros: "For some reason, we found ourselves in the Premium section for our return flight from Palm Springs. So we got fed!! Which was nice. And we had a little more legroom, “spare seat” between us, etc."
Cons: "It was a short flight, only 2 1/2 hours, so you can’t really expect much. It’s the long flights where service really makes a difference."
Pros: "Swat was okay, crew was great"
Cons: "Wifi no work, loading was a bit of a joke"
Pros: "Super friendly, fun crew!"
Cons: "Seats are so small"
Cons: "Always a ‘full flight’ and they run out of spacein the overhead storage"
Cons: "Serving with patience. Not being late all the time for boarding and for off-boarding."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than expected despite a later departure."
Pros: "The flight left on time and the crew were pleasant and efficient. Best of all, we had ample legroom in our economy seats. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "While we were waiting to board, we heard an announcement by American Airlines, allowing currently serving military members and their families to board with the VIPs. I think that is wonderful idea!"
Pros: "Check in was quick and easy. Boarding and flight was right on time!"
Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the walk from Gate 4 to Gate 41 TWICE when the departure gate was changed. We are in our 80’s and it was quite a trek!"
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: "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."
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!"
Cons: "They tried for force us to pay for a different ticket because we had gotten a cheap initial ticket!"
Pros: "The crew was kind when they gave me an extra bag of pretzels to calm my rolling stomach on a flight that while over 4 hours long does qualify for even a decent sized bag of pretzels."
Cons: "I think the seats on westjet are ridiculous, are they smaller than other planes. I was practically in the lap of the person next to me. I'm 5'7 and I couldn't even rest my head on my knees to stop the extreme motion sickness. I couldn't even finish my flight today because I couldn't stand the nausea and I couldn't rest in a seat 2 sizes too small for a regular sized person. I had to lay down and when it didn't subside I had to find accommodation. I will never fly with westjet again. But thanks you know for the pretzels."
Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardess were fantastic."
Cons: "Its a little cramped in the seats."
Pros: "It's a way to get from point A to point B."
Cons: "It's like taking the bus, it is what it is. Not great but it gets you there."
Pros: "I like everything"
Pros: "Was nice clean short flight. Pleasant stewardesses. Food was lacking but normal now for short flight"
Cons: "Entertainment only with app loaded devices"
Pros: "staff was unfriendly. no options for entertainment that don't cost. no blankets to keep warm. i understand airlines need to make money, but they're making it much less enjoyable. on the upside, my flight down had incredible staff who treated me and my mother very well. sometimes, people make all the difference ;)"
Cons: "It took several hours for the decision to be made to cancel our original flight from PV to Van, and when the final decision was made, the complete lack of sympathy or communication came as a shock. No one informed us why we were moving to another terminal or that our flight had actually been cancelled and we would be staying another night in Mexico for another two hours. Getting our hotel voucher and transportation to the venue took another several hours. (Sorry Westin, but you also receive poor marks on your food services. Your front desk people were great though!) The following morning we were not informed that there would be no food service on the flight, so my kids were starving by the time we touched down in Vancouver. The ordeal was exhausting and when we finally arrived in Vancouver we almost missed our connecting flight because of a huge error in off-loading our luggage. It shouldn’t take over an hour to receive your luggage. Again, the communications break down led to hightened anxiety and stress. The whole horrible journey home with WestJet made the loveliness of my actual holiday pale into the background. I was very disappointed in WestJet as I’ve had fabulous experiences in the past. If possible, I will avoid flying with them again any time soon."
Pros: "Short flight at a great price!"
Cons: "If you are not a US citizen, you must apply for an Eta. Canada charges $7 for citizens to enter the country. Did not know we needed this and had to apply online right before boarding our flight."
Pros: "That we could sleep during the flight. The attendants left us alone when we were sleeping."
Pros: "Staff are always fun and efficient, but the drinks came very late. In Asia, even if the flight is only 1 hour, they have the time to serve a lunch and clean up....."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Cons: "Took 45min to bag check (3 agents and only 3 families ahead of me) and when I did bag drop, I’d already checked in online, the agent tagged my luggage to Calgary not vancouver and put it under someone else’s name. It’s been over 34 hours and still no word from westjet. Calgary is an 1 1/2 hr flight to Vancouver. Not impressed."
Pros: "West jet employees worked hard to fix the mess they caused. Eventually getting me a ticket for another airline."
Cons: "Changed my flights with less than 3h notice. I’d payed extra to reduce wait times as I was flying with a child just over 2. Originally had me coming in to Vancouver at 9 am and leaving at 5:40pm. Not cool with a young child. Allmost missed the 1st flight getting it fixed, they also didn’t book my child in adjacent seats, despite pre-booking the seats on the flight days before."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "I just cannot understand why WestJet cannot seat six people travelling together together. I mean really folks, it can’t be that hard... especially since five of those passengers have the same surname! Finally, is a cup of coffee and cookie and a glass of water really sufficient for a 5hr 9min flight, which adds to well over six hours with boarding and alighting time included."
Pros: "It was a comfortable experience, the flight crew were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The lack of space beneath the seat in front of me can be frustrating, especially when one is required to push their small bag underneath it."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This older plane had tiny seats in the seat backs. My phone screen was bigger. Thought we might get a meal on a flight of this length and at this time of day."
Pros: "It was a great flight . It wasn't full so there was a lot of room . It was on time and the Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Go from point a to point b"
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
no mask requirement will be even better.
Flight from Chicago to Vancouver was 5 hours delayed, not even for weather. Canadian Transportation Authority requires $400 CAD compensation for each ticket flying into Canada for this level of delay. This was not offered by the airline to us.
Flight departed 2 hours late and arrived and landed but did not deplaned the passengers until 30 minutes later which made it impossible to make my connection that left before deplaning
Pros: "The pilot kept us well informed after boarding of delays, etc."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic with no concern for social distancing. Speaker system in gate area was so distorted it was very difficult to understand the gate attendants announcements. Cabin attendant acted as if he were bored and would rather be home in bed; he gave no acknowledgement or greeting to passengers upon boarding."
Pros: "Fast. Arrived early."
Cons: "More room."
Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."
Pros: "I flew first class, I really enjoyed my flight and the people and crew. I also ended up speaking with one of the pilots for a while."
Cons: "Our flight attendant was most definitely very new and didn't know hardly at all what he was doing, even during the safety briefing. I wasn't concerned for my safety, I just thought it was odd."
Cons: "Flight delayed twice and then had to wait on runway for take off"
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 10 minutes. :("
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Pros: "One of the ladies working was very unhappy with life. The other lady was kind and delightful."
Cons: "The air vents did work. So very hot on board. Timing of boarding and landing was great. Some turbulance during flight. Here's the kicker my first fight was delayed and my luggage was stuck in Dallas! My luggage did appear at my house in the middle of the night. Is that a good use of resources?"
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "The flight crew was terrific, and the pilot provided good information on the cause of the delay, and expected deoarture and arrival."
Cons: "We were 80 minutes late leaving Portland. Fortunately I did not have a connecting flight and the late arrival was a nuisance and not a problem."
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Cons: "The stewards on American Airlines are literally scary to talk to; rude and unprofessional."
Pros: "Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight arrived PHL early and no jetway as typical at PHL"
Pros: "The plane was not busy so services took about 5 minutes, everyone had 2 seats minimum and generally quiet. Had it been busy, it would have been different in that seats were not very wide, aisles very small, if the seat in front reclines and you don't, you can't see your screen and not a lot of space in general."
Cons: "If you want to select your seat, be prepared to pay £175 per flight. This is ridiculous! Second meal was a very bare bbq beef pie or sweet potato pie... On their own with nothing else and it arrived 30 minutes before we landed so very rushed. On a 9.5hr flight the 2nd meal needed to be an actual meal and come sooner than it did."
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Cons: "Delayed for mechanical."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Turbulent flight, little leg room, old plane, delayed, no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was pleasent and helpful"
Cons: "Didn't get my bag, on either end"
Pros: "The seats on this little plane were large and comfy (which I never thought I'd say about a plane again). The crew was great, and the flight was hitchless."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour and a half. Not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things, but it still puts a cramp in my day."
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "We received an upgrade for our seats, during the flight the staff were very attentive to us. The flight was quiet and calm."
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "CRJ900 is a small plane. no WiFi"
Cons: "The flight I booked was misrepresented. I thought I was booking a BA flight only to find it was American Airlines. This changed the terminal I was to go to and the gate in which our Italian non-english speaking driver was to meet us at. This impacted seating selection, as well. Was forced to buy a premium seat when I realized the seating chart did not appear when I purchased the tickets. Also, flight was three hours late upon arrival. I understand safety is paramount and am grateful we eventually were able to find another plane, but it begs to speculate if things would have been smoother on a BA plane."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Some glitch said the flight was delayed, when it wasn't. Good thing I checked with the Check In Counter."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant and arrival earlier than expected"
Cons: "There was nothing not to like. We took off on time, had no turbulence, friendly service and landed early."
Cons: "the new seats are awful"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."
Pros: "Liked that one of the flights ha a usb connection to charge my phone"
Cons: "It was slightly more cramped in the seating and it was very warm for the duration of the flight"
Pros: "Clean, quiet, nice staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Commuter flight, got me where I needed to go. The crew and staff where really friendly, even with all the confusion of trying to move a couple with a young child out of the emergency row."
