Made a lot of customers check in their bags at the gate. But the cabin space was half empty and all luggage would have fit. Doesn’t make sense.
Cons: "We paid for transportation to cancun and it didn’t happen. We hope there will be compensation for the lost day. So disappointing."
Pros: "This was an older plane with no upgrades including no Internet and the very small poor quality Monitors in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. The seats were very uncomfortable. The transfer in Vancouver after customs involved going outside in the cold to and from the bus. There was no warning. The customs area red jacketed help personnel told us that it was just as fast to go throught the general customs are instead of using our Nexus cards and this turned out to take forever. So very disappointing."
Cons: "Better communication at all levels. Remember that the overall strength of a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and this trip had many weak links for us making it a challenge."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could considering the delays."
Cons: "More information on the three-hour delay"
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment (using own tablet) both very good."
Pros: "Your crew was very helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Crew was great, served us multiple times ! Even tho crew was late 25 mins. We have landed 10 mins early"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The staff insisted on putting bags underneath seats for a 13 hours flight..."
Pros: "Our stewardess was amazing. Took very good care of us. My son was sick and made sure a wheelchair was available for him total take us to transportation. Made our trip. Thank you!!"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "I would expect that with a 5 and half fight that some sort of food besides ti terrible cookies and pretzel would've been offered!! A very long time to go without food!!!"
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable"
Cons: "We missed our runway and had to quickly ascend and retry. Disembarking the plane took 40 minutes due to the YYC skywalk being frozen. During this all communication with the passengers was minimal."
Cons: "Because of the discounted fare I was placed in rear seating at the very back of the plane and to change seats was to cost me $14"
Pros: "Flight was on time and WJ does provide quite a lot of leg room on their jets."
Cons: "There wasn't any food to purchase other than a few snacks. That's just not good enough for a 6 hour flight, Really poor."
Pros: "Crew very kind and smily. Very punctual."
Cons: "Prices ridiculous, one coors light 7dollars and with 7 dollars you buy 12 coors light in Mexico!!!. Food really bad and prices worse. No entertainment."
Pros: "Amazing Service at the registering counter at the airport. One for the two flight attendants was very nice. Unfortunately, he was not the one assigned to my section."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was incredibly dismissive. “Forgot” to ask for my order to get lunch, so needed to call him so he could take my order (he was already in the middle of eating his own food) and of course by then what I asked for was not available, and the options for food were bad. On top of that, the trash from the top of my table was not cleared for a long, long, long time (even though everyone else’s in my section were clean). First time this happens to me in all my years of flying, specially in upper economy class."
Pros: "The overall experience was great"
Pros: "Clean planes, positive and a bit funny attendants, easy in boarding. Service that is wonderful."
Cons: "Electrical was out so not able to charge my device"
Pros: "En tiempo y algo cómodo"
Cons: "Que no hay aperitivos para ser un vuelo internacional de 4 horas."
Pros: "As it was a red eye flight, we didn’t utilize the food options. My answer is better identified as ‘n/a’."
Cons: "I was in row 2 and they did not have the food item I wanted. Seriously?"
Pros: "The service of the crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No food included just water and Coke."
Pros: "Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Paid good money for this flight to Cancun, no wifi, and no movies etc... This is unacceptable and I'm very disappointed as a long time WestJet flyer"
Cons: "The crew on the plain was extremely rude!!! Very very dissapointed!"
Pros: "Great service and atmosphere! The crew was so helpful!"
Cons: "I wish you could make the seat space bigger..."
Pros: "The flight comes into Vancouver at a very good time."
Cons: "Friendly. And a nice quick/smooth flight."
Cons: "Every leg of our trip with Westjet was late, VERY late - to the point we missed our connection. Rough landings. Crew was subpar. Will fly another carrier next time."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "The trip was uneventful........................................"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..............................................................."
Cons: "Everything! Staff were horrible"
Cons: "My luggage got left in toronto"
Pros: "Great crew services, as usual. Nice, smooth flight."
Cons: ""We're waiting for a pilot," doesn't exactly scream, "well oiled machine". How do you rate a bag of pretzels as " Food?""
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and we arrived in Cancun early which was great."
Cons: "The cabin was freezing. I fly often and I always pack a sweater and a blanket but even that couldn’t keep me warm because the cabin was so cold Also, my meal that I purchased on the flight was frozen all the way through. It was literally like biting into a popsicle. My teeth hurt for the rest of the flight after just one bite. I asked for another sandwich which took a while because they were busy with other passengers. My replacement sandwich felt just as cold but it wasn’t frozen solid like the first one. It seems like a minor inconvenience but it became quite frustrating."
Pros: "Staff are friendly"
Cons: "The on board menu only caters to rabbits and squirrels. I get some people like to eat that way but what about the other 80 percent of the population????"
Pros: "Friendly , helpful staff . Who know what they are doing and try to accommodate you with minimum fuss ."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind this trip"
Pros: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "A short haul flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "Very little to no leg room."
Cons: "Too small of a plane. Using twin props instead of jets.. Depends on the time of departure. You pay for preferred seating and get jammed into this de Havaland jumper plane. Noisy and then the gate is at the end of the old part of the Calgary airport. Having to board and get off the plane in rainy weather. How bush for both airports. Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"
Pros: "The crew so nice and helpful"
Cons: "I was traveling with a piece of artwork and had to check it in oversized luggage, but as I was going through customs, I wasn't allowed in, because the Westjet team couldn't find it. I was escorted to their waiting zone, where I spent 1.5 hours waiting in limbo trying to figure out what I could do. Thank goodness the flight was delayed 80 minutes, because I was finally able to make the flight with 2 minutes to spare after running to the gates. The flight time, 65 minutes. I find it hard to believe the flight got delayed an entire flight. To couple that, when the plane landed in LGA (where I am as I write this), we're stranded on the runway because we don't have clearance to pull into our taxi area."
Pros: "New plane and friendly service."
Cons: "More leg room would be appreciated."
Pros: "Efficient and Friendly Service. Clean Aircraft. Snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Window seat is very cramped due to curve of the aircraft. Effectively no room to stretch both your legs."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Being taking advantage of"
1st flight was late by 19 mins. Due to immigration and customs we missed by 5 mins and 2 even 2 flight was delayed my 20 mins still they did not took us. We had to Wait at airport for 4 hours. Really bad experience.
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour. We still managed to make our scheduled rendezvous."
Pros: "There is no built in entertainment system. Download the app on your phone to be able to watch movies in flight."
Cons: "Not much room in economy class."
Pros: "There seems to have been improvements to the check in and boarding for disabled disabled passengers like myself at Pearson. Much easier to drop off luggage and move quickly to the wheelchair pickup area. Staff were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Spacing between seats continues to be a problem especially for disabled clients. Because I was travelling alone, I was asked if I would move to accommodate someone with a pet carrier that would not fit under the seat they were in. I declined but wondered how they were allowed to board with an oversized case. Also seemed strange to ask a disabled passenger to move."
Pros: "TV in seat, new plane. I liked nothing else about this crappy airline."
Cons: "Delayed because they couldn't fit the luggage on the plane, had to pay extra for my family to sit together, worst service ever on board, the slowest old ladies pushing the cart, 90 minutes late in perfect weather, took forever to get the baggage."
Pros: "Take off and landing smooth and relatively smooth in between."
Cons: "6 hour flight no food included. Came by twice for beverages. No entertainment. Probably the first time in 10 years I've been on a flight without any screens for entertainment. Goes without saying, no USB plug in."
Pros: "When the flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues my flights from Victoria to Cancun was rerouted through Toronto with free hotel where my brother and I shared a bottle of wine at Air Canada's expense..."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and professional. The trip to the Maple Leaf Lounge always a great experience!"
Cons: "For a business class ticket, the food was not the best. There was no service of any kind until we got in the air. Most airlines in business class will at least give you a drink while u are waiting for everyone else to board."
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "Entertainment Was limited. Ran out of options for food because of flightbdeparture delay we were over 6hours on flight and many were hungry."
Pros: "The crew was so nice and helpful. They are all wonderful people at LAX and Regina, SK."
Cons: "The plane was hot and cramped. The air didn’t work right causing the flight to be warm and sweaty. My tray table was broken and wasn’t able to hold food and drinks flatly."
Pros: "Seats in business."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."
Cons: "Aircraft was switched for maintenance. Incredibly late arrival"
Pros: "Clean well maintained aircraft, friendly staff"
Cons: "Not even SNACKS are free anymore on Air Canada!"
Pros: "The plane was really comfy and the service on board was outstanding"
Pros: "I brace myself every time I fly Air Canada. Things often go wrong or are frustrating in some way. So I prepare myself mentally. Although there was a takeoff delay and the boarding procedure was confusing, this flight went fairly smoothly, compared to other fiascos I have had with Air Canada."
Cons: "Air Canada has an opportunity to be excellent and they keep hanging on to mediocrity. I think it is either a corporate culture that does not see things from the customer perspective, or a morale problem that shows up as ground staff who do not want to be there. Also, Terminal 1 is a hassle. You check in at the kiosk, only to have to line up for 30 min. to drop your bag off. If I could, I would only fly WestJet."
Pros: "Seats comfortable"
Cons: "No overhead bin for centre section of row that my seat was in made it very inconvenient. It seemed to take far too long to offload the plane at the gate; we waited over 10 minutes for the door to open."
Pros: "Seats very hard to sit in for 5 hrs."
Pros: "Good entertainment system and comfy seats for a regional flight."
Cons: "Confusion at boarding, delays and turbulence the whole ride so they did not serve beverages."
Pros: "Crew on the flight were very patient, understanding and friendly. Ground staff were the exact opposite. Agitated, temperamental and unwilling to help or find solutions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily the crews fault. But frustrating as our flight both to and from Washington was delayed both ways."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Pros: "That I was able to play it on my phone"
Cons: "Flight attendants passed by me without asking if I would like to buy lunch and when she finally she came by they didn't have anything else"
Pros: "I like that Air Canada provides entertainment and its flight attendants are really good."
Cons: "I rarely fly these partner airlines without experiencing major delays, and the delays are always announced after I have cleared security, forcing me to spend hours at the airport. The claims of "weather" are specious: they don't fly enough planes and they don't properly maintain the planes they do fly."
Pros: "Friendly crew, the male FA was especially helpful! It was a smooth, direct, on time flight! Captain was friendly, informative, and great pilot!"
Cons: "At check in the ground agents were slow and uncertain. The lady who was training them was not friendly. She said 300 pesos or 25 U.S., and when I told her to charge my visa in pesos, she said it was going to be charged in U.S, which comes out to more. She never gave me a receipt for the charge. When she was checking my boarding pass and passport, she didn't even look at me or acknowledge me."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The crew was absolutely terrible and very rude"
Pros: "On time. Clean plane"
Cons: "Miscommunication with luggage No food included but at extra cost No entertaining at all! Only through wifi in your own device and you have to download an app BEFORE boarding for it to work but yet, no one tells you"
Cons: "I tried to call your airlines to reserve a spot for humanitarian supplies. I run a rescue for dogs in Cancun. I could never get through to anyone and there is no info on your tickets about the cost of a third bag. I was charged an extra $500.00 for two extra bags that were carrying donated supplies to help the animals. But your airline made it a useless endeavor because they ended up costing more than they were worth. The people at the gate were unbending and I'm so disappointed that it is more important to you to make money than help non-profit organizations. I have run Isla Animals for 15 years and have had much help from kind airlines, I won't be flying yours or recommending yours to any dog lovers."
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Pros: "First time flying on the largest airline in Canada and had a positive experience. From the online check in process to returning home it was a smooth trip"
Pros: "Trouble free"
Cons: "Very costly - then we were hit with an extra $172 in baggage fees for 1 bag each."
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Pros: "I had a five year old and an eleven year old traveling with me and was able to board early and get them settled before everyone else got on."
Cons: "We didn't see much of the flight attendants and my grandson became ill. We could have used more water throughout the flight as that may have prevented him from getting sick."
Cons: "I missed the flight"
Pros: "Once I actually got on the rebooked flight, everything went great."
Cons: "I get it, weather happens, but airlines should have figured out by now how to make any issues that come from that as painless as possible. Air Canada did not have it together. There was little communication and coordination. People had to wait multiple times in ungodly long lines while agents spent way too much time with each customer. There was misinformation and lack of information given by agents and at times no one to help at all. When there's weather it should be all hands on deck until the effected customers get to where they need to be. Otherwise it's an aggravating and nearly intolerable experience. Commercial airlines have been around for 60+ years - figure it out already."
Cons: "Captain's announcements were inaudible from the wing seats. Seats very cramped - I'm only 5 feet tall and barely had room for my legs. Also, unable to see safety demonstration as the seat backs were too tall for a short person to see anything but the back of the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Nothing fantastic but it was a good flight even after being delayed a while. Our plane had something wrong so they took us off the plane and we had to wait until they found a new plane for us, thank goodness we were in Canada at the hub where there must've been extra planes."
Cons: "I could not understand one word the stewardess said. I'm not sure if it was an accent thing or a speak too fast too close to the microphone thing but had it been an important message I wouldn't have made it. The music on the entertainment"
Pros: "Flight crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Got to the airport in plenty of time to check in only to be told there was no seat for me because the flight was overbooked. The ground crew in Bermuda were not very professional. The agent couldn't explain what was happening and said I had to wait for the supervisor to explain. The supervisor was rude and pretty much ignored my daughter and me and then finally called our names to be checked in. Still no apology or explanation. I got the feeling I was a bother to them. That was pretty much the icing on the cake! On our way to Bermuda they asked if we would check our carry on bags as the flight was full. We obliged and did not get ours bags for two days after we arrived in Bermuda. Still no explanation nor apology. No one we talked to could even tell us where our bags were. It was a very disappointing experience for my family. I really expected much better customer service from Air Canada"
Pros: "Got to the airport at the same time as my son, he got on and I didn't. They said the flight was closed by the time i checked in."
Cons: "Baggage misplaced"
Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "No food. Pretzels or cookies."
Pros: "We arrived at our destination safely."
Cons: "Our flight departed from the gate late and then needed to return to the due to a door malfunction. After a 4 hour delay we were on our way. Bathrooms were closed before takeoff but no announcement was made that they would be open during the delay. No beverages were offered during the delay. Not all of the bathrooms were functional during the flight. The entertainment system is available through your iphone, ipad or computer. If you haven't downloaded the app prior to departing you can't use it and you then need to rent an ipad for $10 to watch movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, boarding could have been delayed to avoid sitting on the tarmac for such a long period of time in the plane. That is EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE for travellers. If Air Canada knows the departure will be delayed, boarding of the aircraft should be delayed"
Cons: "I booked this particular flight because it was the shortest route available. But the Air Canada flight from Dallas was delayed for an hour and then we experienced computer problems causing further delays. I therefore missed my connection in Toroto and was told by the ground staff I could only get out 2 days later. I was also told there were no hotels available. There were long lines of angry people complaining, and they were from different flights, One couple complained they missed 2 days of their honeymoon. The plane did have seats in business class which they refused to hand out. Eventually they found me a hotel and redirected me through Frankfort the next day. It turned out to be a 27 hour trip. Huge disappointment."
Cons: "My daughter got destroyed by a cup of coffee a passenger behind her was holding when turbulence struck quiet bad,neither he or the airline apologizes for either."
Cons: "Misinformation on baggage allowance for Tango flights."
Pros: "Loved the airplane! Seats better, window auto shading was wonderful, I felt more rested after landing."
Cons: "We had a short time between flights. Custom wasn't to bad but having to get through security again was a mess. The security guard at first location told us the floor above was moving faster and had more doors. We were in a hurry and changed lines and the other was worse we walked up to gate right in time."
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Pros: "The crew was typical, the seat was on the aisle, which I prefer, but kind of in the way and I kept hitting my head."
Cons: "The snacks are not good at all, next time I'll take my own. They should just quit serving them and charging us for them."
Cons: "Missed All connecting flights because plane was delayed 5 hours at place of origin thanks to United Airlines. Needed an "O ring" for maintenance. A very simple part yet had to locate one in another city. Very poor. Wasted 1 day. Went back home. Rebooked for tomorrow. $20 meal voucher. Pathetic."
Pros: "Crew was great. Little bumpy but can’t control weather."
Cons: "Gate changed 3 times."
Pros: "Friendly crew Friendly Gate Staff Super fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats were tight Overpriced upsell for “preferred” seating"
Pros: "getting bumped up to economy plus and being in an exit row."
Cons: "Again crew seemed annoyed with people. The flight was delayed 2 hours. The person giving info and safety demonstration talked so fast no one could understand them."
Pros: "Extraordinary efforts to accommodate bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable, they force you to slouch. They should support your lower back instead."
Cons: "Meals served was not so good"
Pros: "crew was patient and efficient"
Cons: "3+ hour delay leaving CVG due to delayed plane out of ORD"
Cons: "One crew member. Female middle aged woman. Not polite."
Pros: "Multiple passengers were assigned the same seats so we had to do some shuffling once everyone had boarded. There were however enough seats for everyone."
Cons: "The staff was very pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Noisy intrusive kids-clueless parents no help from crew"
Pros: "That i got there safely"
Cons: "5 hour wait time NO FREE WIFI NO POWER OUTLETS"
Cons: "You had to pay to watch tv. It's free to watch movies on American Airlines!"
Pros: "Not much. We did arrive alive, which is the best part of it."
Cons: "First flight of the day took off late because of a mechanical issue. Couldn't they fix it during the night?"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Uncomfortable.. not enough leg room, seats don't lay back enough"
Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."
Pros: "Friendly staff Easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight had no snacks. The seats werent comfortable."
Cons: "Near 5 hour delay at departure airport with very poor communication."
Cons: "I would never pay for movies.it is too tacky that everything is for sale"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service."
Cons: "Not really flight related, but having the call buttons located on arm rests was terrible and interrupted sleep for everyone whenever someone's arm would bump a button and set it off."
Pros: "the large Wide body plan"
Pros: "On time smooth flight, goof landing."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Seats are entirely too small and close together."
Cons: "Maybe it is real or maybe it is my imagination, it seems like the leg room has decreased. My son is around 6' and was not very comfortable. I could not reach my shoes to loosen my shoe laces."
Cons: "During the flight, I went to ask for a glass of water. The flight attendant in the galley was doing a crossword puzzle, and when I made my request, she turned around and pointed to a pitcher of water, and went back to her puzzle. Unbelievable."
Pros: "I liked my attendants. It was around Spring Break with a lot of Delta's passengers trying to get on our flight. They handled the rush well and didn't neglect their already booked passengers in the process."
Cons: "Although our tickets were purchased together, my husband and I were not seated together. And the flight was very crowded. I think it's a little unprofessional for a company to overbook a flight and then bribe passengers with money to wait for another flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful, courteous, and welcoming."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Got to destination safely"
Cons: "Don't fit in the seats at all I am 6'7" tall Person in front can't recline And I don't fit at all"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Pros: "Staff was very kind and genuine"
Cons: "the plane was absolutely freezing cold!"
Cons: "economy seats so small. also can't even access flight maps if you don't buy the directv package."
Pros: "There was nothing good to like about this leg of my trip."
Cons: "I paid for first class and It was the worst flight I have ever been on, sat in the plane at the gate for over an hour with a huge women that was brought up to1st class from economy, she smelled, she was a lush. There was a child that did not quit crying the entire flight, I could not get off the plane fast enough, there was nothing1st class about the flight, we needed fuel after we boarded, then it was a cargo issue,and then it was airport, we should not have been on the plane until the plane was ready for flight.very poor planning you should be embarrassed about the flight."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, we chose seats but when we checked in they said we had never chosen seats and split up myself and my husband. To watch anything it was $7.99."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Late out of ORD"
Cons: "Changed our flight and also seats against our desire. Had to move back to the last row by the toilet in order to sit together."
Pros: "The complimentary snacks and beverages were nice."
Cons: "I don't like when Direct TV is the entertainment option as it isn't free."
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Pros: "The United Airline staff was very helpful. Our evening flight from another airline was cancelled and we booked the next available United flight departing early the following morning. Recommendations from the staff made our unplanned stay much more comfortable. It was greatly appreciated."
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "My seat was a tad bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, professional & kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues so I only had 40 min layover to get to my next gate. Also when we arrived we were on the ground for a long time before we could pull up to gate to unload. I have a 3 yr old & 5 yr old & had to run to make it. We made it but luggage didn't. My first luggage was delivered quickly, the 2nd luggage arrived 3 days after we arrived home."
Pros: "It was a great experience overall"
Pros: "That it was quick and had good company during the flight. There was wine."
Cons: "2 hour delay, and given the wrong wine."
