Pros: "- Flight was on time - Friendly crew"
Cons: "- My flight was from Montreal to Seattle with a connection in Calgary but the agent at the check in in Montreal was unable to confirm whether my luggage would be transferred directly to Seattle or if I had to collect it in Calgary and check in again. The crew should know or be able to verify the information in their database or somewhere at the departure not only when I arrive in Calgary! It adds a stress to the customer not knowing. - Flight of 4.30 hours and no free meals. - Impossible to use my hear phones in the plane so I couldn't hear the TV channels. I was also expecting movies and series like in Delta."

Pros: "Everyone was cordial"
Cons: "Entertainment system, especially the sound was poor"
Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."
Cons: "Mechanical Maintenance"
Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
Pros: "The team was very professional and friendly"
Pros: "Crew was very professional but no explanation of why it took out 30+ mins overtime to depart nor why we were held from landing another 30+ mins."

Pros: "It was on time - no delays"
Cons: "Would have liked some snacks along with the drinks offered."
Pros: "This was an economy flight for the weekend. Everything was perfect except I believe the airlines policy of charging for checked baggage is leading people to take advantage. We were delayed briefly just for people trying to get way too much carry on baggage into the overhead compartments."

Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "Free snacks."
Pros: "Absolutly, they let me switch seat"
Cons: "No leg room,"
Cons: "Seats low on padding, no movie options other than the one offered on the public screen"
Cons: "To have known that you had to do security twice without leaving the boarding area."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The seat space was very narrow for an international flight."
Pros: "Air Transat provide excellent service with affordable prices. I have arrived late to check-in desk due to unexpected traffic but Air Transat team was very supportive, even helped us to cross the customs in no-time until the gate of the plane without interrupting the flight time. Highly Recommended."
Pros: "L’équipage très serviable à l’ecoute et souriant"
Cons: "Pas d’ecran dans les appuie tête devant pour l’entertainment. Le siege n’a aucun ajustement pour la tête Et aucune prise usb pour charger nos appareils"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Seats were tiny"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Old plane... not much room for legs and seating are uncomfortable! No personal entertainment système! Poor flight"
Cons: "Checking site was down Boarding was delayed because of crew forgot to tag Cary-on luggage for passengers, we had to all go off the plane to identify our luggage’s No space on the airplane, didn’t get to sit beside my wife. Would not recommend Pay the extra to go with a reputable airline."
Pros: "There was not much to like... we boarded quickly that was about it."
Cons: "For starters, they should offer water and juice on all flights. On my outbound trip they only offered water and it took them a long time to offer the water. Also, on my inbound trip they turned on the lights after take off and had them on for a while. Seats are also SMALL."
Pros: "It’s hard to write a review when flight was supposed to leave at 6:30 and didn’t until midnight, but due to weather. It was frustrating for all but staff and pilot kept us informed at all times so that was appreciated. There wasn’t much to do but to wait out the weather."
Cons: "For the weather to be better and to have left on time - but obviously that is out of everyone’s control."
Pros: "It left fairly promptly. Service was efficient. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Great price! For the price, we didn't expect much, just travel and get there safe - NO FRILLS. We paid a little extra for legroom and are happy this was not an inflated price. Paying in advance for our bag and getting a small discount was also appreciated. "Get what you pay for" without feeling "nickled and dimed" is what we consider economical and fare treatment."
Cons: "Again "you get what you pay for" is considered. However if I was to be critical, the choice of movies was a little stressful and one sided. (Star Wars and The Avengers). I brought my own entertainment but I felt bad for the Older generation who may have preferred something a little more relaxing and less CGI explosions. Also the interior decor and hardware of the plane was seriously aged and worn, which could use for an upgrade soon."
Pros: "Boarding started from the back to the front. Which, I always thought it's the correct way to embark and it was the first time I saw it done that way."
Cons: "When the boarding was finallly finalized the airplane was ready to take off on the track for about an hour and a half and no one was told why we weren't taking off. I decided to ask and the flight attendant said that "it took long to embark all the luggage and that it won't be very long". To which, I didn't understand what one thing had to do with the other since that shouldn't be the cause to why we are paralized on the track but I just left it like that. Instantly after she walks to the back, they announce that they there was a problem with the A/C and that we had to wait to have a spot near a gate sothat we could go back and and a mecanic could come and fix it. After it took for ever... they finally fixed it but now we had to wait for gas. At this point, whitin those three hours, only one glass of water was offered to us and no appology. Thankfully, we finally took off, 3 three hours and a half behind schedule. They started to serve food and drinks to first class people and were completely taken care of but no attention to all the other passengers. At this point it's been 5 hours that we are on this plane and it seems that the service was extremly slow to get us hydraded or been offered anything to eat. My flight was 4hours away from Montreal to Calgary initiallyT And this whole event made it an 8hour travel with, the fact being completely ignored by the crew and nothing being offered for customer satisfaction. The pilot only said a small "we apologize" after we had already landed. It isn't the first time that I fly with this company and I find that it used to be one of the top companies in Quebec but the service and the quality have deteriorated overtime. There is always something negative that happens when I fly with them and I've noticed that the customer service isn't really present. It's okay but since it doesn't seem to matter to them, I will no longer fly with this company. (P.S.: this whole event caused me to miss the last bus to my final destination and have to wait at the airport until the next day at 9:30am to take the first bus in the morning... luckily I only work in the afternoon.)"
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Cons: "Delayed 2 h for waiting for a passenger. Service onboard is quite limited. No water served!! Food is quite basic."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No room. It was clastertphobic. The seat in front was so close you couldn’t move. The screen for the movie was small and far from the seat and everyone’s head was in the way. Difficult for short people like me to see anything. Not very clean. Not enough washrooms."
Pros: "This was a standard flight.... I slept most of it so it's hard to rate....."
Pros: "Great video system."
Cons: "Seats and legroom are insufficient."
Pros: "On time,I could charge my mobile"

Pros: "Good flight, no incidents. Liked the food"
Cons: "Audio was not working, no personal tv screens"
Cons: "2.5 hr on tarmac before departure"
Pros: "It was an easy process"
Cons: "Some lady was screaming there was not enough space for her luggage overhead."
Pros: "Possibly of direct flight. Had to book earlier flights due to deteriorating health of brother who fied tbis week thus had to pay for 2 flight"
Cons: "Having pushed to just fly for reservations and no warning that this company doesn’t allow for change if plan as brothers health took for the worst andhad to fly earlyier to see him before he died. I will never again use just fly for any bookings and have told my family members and friends about this company poor customer service. Buyer beware if you use just fly. Air transat said they would havé refunded us but it was up to just fly that we had to go through. Never again just fly."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I am still at the airport in Montreal looking for a flight to leave Montreal. I came 3 hours before the flight, I tried the machine I couldn't find my reservation. I thought the problem was with the machine, went to the agent same problem. they gave me that number +18553331101 to chek with the air transat customer care, they couldn't find the reservation either, I tried then to call the number provided on the reservation confirmation +18774964815, no answer, even the flight was delayed for almost 30 minutes, I still couldn't get on board. Now I'm still at the airport looking for a flight to leave. my question now is after all of that are you guys still going to charge my card that $226.43?"
Pros: "Staff were professionnel, the plane clean and confort were good"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late"
Pros: "There are no leg room at all for tall people."
Cons: "Too small"
Cons: "the delay 9 hours"
Cons: "Antiquated electronics use procedures"
Pros: "I was crammed into the middle seat between two obese men. I could hardly move my legs or arms. They offered bistro but when I asked for a bistro item they said they had no more."
Pros: "Lot of room, friendly staff."
Cons: "Food was ok from Prague to Montreal. However, from Montreal to Prague we received a hot sandwich ??? and a slice of vanilla cake for breakfast? On top of that they were promoting some chef Vezina at an extra charge of 25$ thinking that people would buy a standard meal at a surcharge rate? This is really bad publicity for airtransat, never had I witnessed such poor food on an 8 hour flight. Waving the standard meal at a surcharge rate is truly uncool. Offering the hot bun as a standard meal to fulfil the long flight hot meal standard is a low blow, that's all I can say."
Pros: "Extra empty seats. Good entertainment. Decent service."
Cons: "Non stop noise. Flight attds did nothing to allow sleep througout long flight. Kosher breakfast was a sweet snack- not a meal or even sandwich."
Cons: "Late boarding, no assigned seating, virtually no options for buying food on board (and the small sandwich that was given for free was not good), no entertainment system, and no outlets for charging electronics."
Pros: "Boarding was done efficiently"
Cons: "The seats were awful. Our luggage was severely damaged"
Pros: "Seats were alright"
Cons: "Lost luggage and no communication since we landed"
Cons: "Our flight from Barcelona was late and we had to rush across the airport to get the connection to Toronto. By the time we landed it was almost time for the Toronto flight to depart. No information was given to the passengers when we landed informing them that the Toronto flight was waiting for us. No information was given by the ground staff either, just told to drop your checked bag off and get to the gate and hope the flight was still there. Would have been a lot less stressful if someone had said "don't worry, the Toronto flight is waiting for you""
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The fkight was delayed and they worked very hard."
Cons: "The plane was very outdated. I had an emergency exit seat and the air coming in from the door was freezing. Not worth the money I spent."
Pros: "Great, smooth flight and landing!"
Pros: "Once I finally got boarding it was quick and staff were helpful"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable I have back problems and found it difficult to sit when I had to use my seat belt. Once again staff making faces at each other showing their impatience with customers. Staff slammed overhead lockers and sighed clearly showing how unimpressed they were."
Pros: "They gave us water when we had to wait an hour before take off. It was not their fault we were delayed. They did wait for the 30 of us who were delayed from Lyon and did not take off without us."
Cons: "They did not answer my call (s) for water to take a pill. They never offered anyone earphones. There were no services at all on this flight as the seat belt sign was on the whole time."
Pros: "Super friendly crew from my seat area, clean plane and kind service"
Cons: "Lack of films available on the plane that we're appealing to a variety of audiences."
Pros: "For a traveller since I was a kid, this is one of my worst experiences"
Cons: "The line for the registration was sooo long! The staff never smiles, if you ask a question they loook at you as you were crazy, they are just hurrying up so they can go sit and chat together The bathroom were disgusting, my bladder almost popped The place is app small, i only weight 105lbs and I was in discomfort The tv, reminds me of the 1990's when you have one big tv for everybody or TV's in the middle of the row"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Good movie selection for kids."
Cons: "Not enough food. My kids wanted Pizza they couldn't have- not enough My kids are registered to kids club- they had nothing more.... no extras no difference. Dirty toilet."
Pros: "On time, inexpensive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable space, narrow seats and corridor, poor food"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good entertainment selection available and drink provided on short flight."
Cons: "Delay and disorganization at airport left passengers frustrated with at least 3 changes to gate prior to departure. Added to this was the incorrect announcement on P.A. System at 6:55pm a change of gate to leave at original time (7pm), only to have a stampede of passengers arrive at newly assigned gate to have no airline representative there and soon a new/revised departure time of 21:05 instead. Hopefully, those clients with international connections were able to make it, but I suspect that several had their plans changed with this > 2 hour delay."
Pros: "It was well heated because often airplanes are too cold, I get sick and also notice that some passenger start coughing, and also me after some hours. The personal was friendly and I knowticed that they tried to please everybody. Unfortunately there was a baby who cried most of the time and her mother simply was not able to calm her. I also travelled with two babies and small children every year long distances but mine always fell asleep and never cried. I know this is beyond your control"
Cons: "The food was not too good, I think I will order vegetarian the next time."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay at 7:30AM?"
Cons: "Possibly the tightest pitch of any airline seats that I've ever flown on. I'm short but I felt cramped, so I'm sure the 182 meter man next to me was really suffering."
Cons: "The seats are made for people measuring 5.4 feet Max. I'm only 5.8 and my legs hit the seat in front. The width is even worse. No entertainment. Just few screens like old days. Food? Just coffee or pops. Not even peanuts. You can be cheap but not that much."
