Cons: "It was too hot on plane. Had all vents but still too hot and stuffy."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. So we reached almost at midnight to Vancouver."
Pros: "Actual flight went off without a hitch to Vancouver no delays in air."
Cons: "We were moved gates which is understandable, however once moved the estimated time of departure was constantly changed and missed. There was a reasonable cause for delay (cleaning up puke) but took abnormally long > 2hrs. Staff did not seem to be really giving it there all (understandable as it was late and they were probably tired)."
Pros: "Staff at WestJet are the best!"
Pros: "I liked that the pre-ordered food was given at the beginning of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time."

Cons: "Havent left Prince George yet still sitting on ground"
Pros: "Overall everything"
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."

Pros: "flight was on time and our baggage arrived with us. The pilot landed in miserable weather and did a very good job."
Cons: "the seat could not be adjusted for tilt and the air nozzles were not working properly in that the air flow was very weak and the cabin was quite hot. We asked the attendant what they would do if we passed out. She let the captain know but nothing could really be done to correct the air flow."
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "The snacks available in flight were very good. Overall the service was good."
Cons: "The baggage fees added up quickly, even flying across the country. You must download the entertainment app in advance of the flight."

Cons: "There were delays (3 times)"
Pros: "Good service and no delays"
Pros: "Great service, a lot of legroom"
Cons: "Not really happy about the food choices"
Cons: "Although we "upgraded" to a front row with supposedly extra legroom, the dividing panel in front was closer than a row of seating would be and there was no room to stretch legs. Painful!"
Pros: "Smooth, on-time flight and okay service."
Cons: "For relatively new aircraft, the comfort of AC’s 787-8 economy seats is not up to par. A frame cross member presses the back of the buttocks, there is minimal lower back support, and no protection from the hands and knees of passengers behind."
Cons: "This was a rebooked flight the next day, as we missed the flight the day before as TA was very late departing Istanbul"
Pros: "Good variety of movies"
Cons: "Flight was really late (2.5hrs), certain flight attendants were impolite and unhelpful (which, granted it was very late but also it's a job so?) The main thing was other passengers around me being extremely rude or disruptive toward other passengers"
Pros: "Generous leg room in coach class"
Cons: "Sat on the runway for almost an hour both to and from my destination"
Cons: "delay, changing the plane, no food"
Pros: "Boarded plane 1.5 late, then sat on plane at Gate for 2 hours. 4 hours late arriving in Vancouver from Montréal on AC 309."
Pros: "we caught the earlier flight to Vancouver, which was great!"
Pros: "It was a good plane ride. Comfortable, on time, and generally pleasant. Check-in was also smooth."
Cons: "The line up for security was gruelling. Why so many flights departing at the same time? And how do I rate food when there wasn't any? Not even a snack on a 5 hour ride."
Cons: "Our connecting flight was pushed to the following day and then we sat for an hour while the plane was deiced. We could have been told a later departure time. While we were not traveling further, those making connections again missed their flights. If they would only own up to the missed connections while still on the ground, alternate plans could be made. Not part of their business model."
Pros: "Crew, attitude, entertainment, everything"
Cons: "A bit cold on the flights and the first two legs of the flight you had pay for blankets."
Pros: "See previous"
Pros: "Lots of leg room! Quite and relaxing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for several hours, while the crew assured us it was on the way. When it landed they still said it was being prepped. Then at 10pm or so, they said it was cancelled. Then we waited another hour and a half to speak to representatives and get our hotels. Then another hour to the hotel to go to sleep. Because I had to be back at the airport in 7 hours to catch the next flight. It would have taken me 2 hours to drive to Seattle from Vancouver."
Pros: "No complaint"
Cons: "One of my three flights was unnecessarily delayed by two hours, enough that I missed my last connection and had to stay overnight in Vancouver. There were no technical complications or weather complications. It was simply because something had been misscheduled and the flight crew needed a longer rest time between flights. This is completely avoidable, and the attendent who checked me in even said so. While the hotel and shuttle were paid for, Air Canada only gave me a $7 breakfast voucher, which was only redeemable at the hotel's measly breakfast counter rather than anywhere in the airport. For the unnecessary delays I had to deal with, i should had received more credit. This was an utterly disappointing travel experience."
Cons: "There was no wifi available on the flight from Montreal to Vancouver."
Cons: "Have no blanket to passenger"
Cons: "Constant gate changes. Getting a seat number assigned was tedious"
Pros: "Everything about it, thank you for the service"

Cons: "Nothing for now."
Pros: "Nice service by flight attendants"
Cons: "Late departure due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment system was very good with movies on the back of the seat in front of you that you could choose from. The plane was pretty big and had decent legroom."
Cons: "They boarded late, and while there were free beverages offered no free food was given out at all."
Cons: "had to pa for poor selection (the cheese "platter" ran out quickly :( )"
Cons: "7 hours flight delay"
Cons: "Vancouver B.C. customs routing and clearance long (distance), slow (we nearly missed our PDX flight). Once in PDX, the baggage handler dropped my wifes bag in a puddle and left it there for a full five minutes. Not the type of air travel we are used to."
Pros: "The seevice of the staff was impeccable."
Cons: "There was no food served during the flight. Did not like that."
Pros: "This flight was so much better than my nice to Montreal flight. It seems like nicer planes should be used for international flights."
Cons: "It'd be nice to have snack and blanket included on a 5 hour flight. We paid $6 for the cheapest blanket ever so my daughter could nap."
Pros: "It was on time - no delays"
Cons: "Would have liked some snacks along with the drinks offered."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that the airline served absolutely no food to passengers for such a long flight. Other airlines serve meals and beverages to their passengers on trans-Atlantic flights. I doubt I will fly Air Canada again for such a flight, due to the lack of interest and care provided the passengers."
Pros: "The crew was very nice on this flight as well."
Cons: "It was a full flight, so not alot of room to move around. My entertainment screen froze up 1/4 of the way into the flight. So I could not watch any movies to pass the time. Didn't buy any food."
Pros: "Staff 5 stars!!"
Cons: "Flight from Montreal to Vancouver was long with uncomfortable seats no pillow and no meals."
Cons: "on march 13/ 2016 booked my tickets on kayak.com so end up getting it with vayama.on july 28 missed my flight for a family raison called vayama and explained the situation they said they will help me just they need to confirm with the airlines (air canada) and they will give me new tickets.no body called me back ,called air canada said: we have ticket but you need to get it from vayama.called vayama again he said sorry about that i will let everyone know and he promise me that i will get help a.s.a.p.did't hear from them left with my wife and two kids in morocco for a week end up buying new tickets from laufthansa"
Cons: "No food for 5 hours No dimmed lights No blankets"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "I was disappointed that there was no meal served on the plane."

Pros: "arrived 15 early crew was very efficient & nice"
Cons: "plane was older 767-300 older version still comfortable but lot less then the newer airbus 330 on my yvr to yul"
Pros: "Nice crew, comfy seats, good communication from Captain, efficient boarding"
Cons: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Free snacks."
Cons: "The staff did not want to accept my ticket purchased through kayak, told me that should have bought a ticket directly through air transat, and they told me to buy a new ticket elsewhere if I wanted to travel on that day. So I had to buy a same day ticket with air canada for an additional $900 CAD, and my ticket bought through kayak was useless, making me waste the entire cost of the ticket purchased through kayak."
Pros: "Leg room was good"
Cons: "Food was lacking or you had to pay for it, not great on a long haul. Terrible films And tiny chairs"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No entertainment system!"
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: "Crew amazing. Passengers great"
Cons: "Seats are way too small. Aisles way too tight. Recent acquisition by air Canada must improve passenger comfort."
Cons: "Newer aircraft"
Pros: "Exit row window seat with empty row beside me. Next to washroom. Got 2hours sleep. All I can ask for."
Cons: "Business class upgrade for free."
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: "Nice flying, nice crew, nice jet"
Cons: "Luggage took an hour to get out... unacceptable"
Cons: "Flught was 90 mins late leaving becuse of equipment failure. Missed my meeting."
Cons: "It took almost an hour from landing for our luggage to make it to the belt. For a domestic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Smallest seats I've been in in a while. Very poor on board entertainment (one 10" screen for every 4 rows, damaged audio ports, annoying movie choices). Very limited cabin storage."
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."
Cons: "Old plane small cabin and seats hurt after 4 hrs."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfy seats, in flight entertainment and charging stations at every seat"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room, hectic boarding"
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.)"
Pros: "Staff - Friendly, polite, professional"
Cons: "Couldn't see TV screen Seat wouldn't recline Cramped and uncomfortable for such a long flight. When I arrived in Vancouver and picked up my luggage, the wheel and part of the suitcase were gone (broken off) . How do I make a claim for this? Thank you"
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Pros: "Great video system."
Cons: "Seats and legroom are insufficient."
Pros: "Good flight, no incidents. Liked the food"
Cons: "Audio was not working, no personal tv screens"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from 10:30pm until 2:30am. Horrible experience. No personal entertainment, food was disgusting!"
Pros: "Loved the see and simplicity of booking with kayak. One of my fastest flight booking with minimal headaches"
Cons: "Ability to check in with the airline through the kayak app. At least through a link to the airlines website with the information required prefilled"
Pros: "Nothing I don't take Air Transat anymore and not recommend to anymone"
Cons: "Transat taking advantage of passengers by charging fees for luggage on return flight I was charged $35US for 2nd luggage on return flight (no charge for same luggage on departure flight). Poor customer relations of staff. Aisle seating was requested and was very uncomfortable. During check-in, Transat staff was not helpful in handling luggage. Poor service and very bad customer service from staff."
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."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "You can only purchase meals and snacks. There should be, at the very least, a snack provided with this flight."
Pros: "Staff were professionnel, the plane clean and confort were good"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late"
Pros: "Great service nice crew We received a C$20.00 vouchers to grab lunch at YUL airport Delays happen Air Transat handled the situation efficiently"
Cons: "4 hours delays because of mechanical problem but from fed and n reasonable time"
Cons: "the delay 9 hours"
Cons: "Antiquated electronics use procedures"
Pros: "One ground staff member was nice"
Cons: "Ignorant flight attendant, and didn't provide any instructions on how to travel with the baby Served drink, no snacks in whole 5 hour flight, no screens Tight legroom"
Pros: "Seats are very narrow a normal person cant fit in an aisle seat without having a portion of their shoulder sticking into the aisle which means constant bumping. Food was ok at least their was some which was really welcomed. Busy busy flight. Loved that it was a direct flight"
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Helpful flight attendants and comfortable enough seats for the price."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but the woman in front of me reclined her seat 100% and was in my lap the entire flight: made for leg cramping and discomfort for the 8+ hours in the air. The sand which I received also had soggy bread after warming.. I got the vegetarian and was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "Seats were alright"
Cons: "Lost luggage and no communication since we landed"
Pros: "The crew, the plane, and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Not anyone's fault but the plane was filled with crying babies...the overnight flight was difficult."
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."
Cons: "We flew Air Transat from Vancouver to London and back as a family of 3. The seats were some of the most cramped that we've been in. Small space for leg room (and I'm only 5'3"), and the placement of the rigid boxes for the life jackets towards the front part of the seat made it impossible to rest your foot on the bar underneath. The arm rests went up, but not all the way back, so that further restricted room and made it awkward for my son to lean against me to sleep. The entertainment selection was OK, however it was the same for both directions, so the way home offered us a much smaller selection."
Cons: "No individual screens for entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly staff , comfortable flight"
Pros: "Quick baggage drop at counter , very nice crew ..."
Cons: "Seat configuration 3 3 3, no power outlets for charging your devices..."
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: "I like The flight it's on time and it's good!!"
Cons: "No food & 1 hr delay"
Pros: "the flight arrived and left on time!"
Cons: "I didn't like the food - could only eat one thing on the menu. More wheat free choices are needed. Crew were not quick to pick up trash or provide drinks of juice and water, tea etc. Seating is very narrow (and I am small -don't know how large people manage)."
Pros: "Nice smooth"
