Pros: "Short and sweet."
Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."

Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."
Pros: "The crew members were professional."
Cons: "The seats could be better"
Cons: "Nothing really."
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: "Very attentive, friendly and efficient flight attendant. Smooth flight. Informative captain."
Pros: "staff did the best they could to assist"
Cons: "Flight change, would have like more options to reschedule flights. However good service from overall."
Pros: "The crew was great, the seats suck."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Westjet is always really friendly."
Cons: "I could not get through to westjet for days due to weather. Then when they called, they hung up on me as connected....back to another hour wait. Then an email. Then 5 days later to hear that despite all of their chaos there would be no changes."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute I had to buy another flight with Air Canada that cost me double the price and i was stuck at the airport all day !!!! The Air Canada flight was at 6.30pm ,and the West Jet was suppose to leave at 11.30am"
Pros: "Flight was excellent. Crew was very courteous and very friendly."
Cons: "The only thing I wish I had more was more other options for fluid besides water."
Cons: "Serving with patience. Not being late all the time for boarding and for off-boarding."
Pros: "West jet always communicates"
Cons: "Waiting to board.. always a hassle"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I booked a flight for Tuesday the eighth and you guys changed it to the seventh, this has never happened to me before I am furious!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "I missed the flight because the delay of the anterior connection and custom, and they didn't give me a new ticket, I had to buy a new one."
Pros: "So now we check in on line. Check in at Terminal 2 Then at the gate the West Jet staff do repeats calls asking for people to check in. The shuttle from Terminal 2 to 3 seems unnecessary, especially with the set of stairs to bus shuttle. A bit dangerous to line up on stairs especially for the elderly managing bags etc. Lower price on checked bags and you will not have to do repeated call out for volunteers."
Pros: "New plane more leg room Direct flight Orlando Winnipeg"
Cons: "Every time I fly WestJet they seem to need to reset the wifi entertainment wasting 15 minutes of movie watching"
Pros: "Plus section is very comfortable and service is very good. Food is so-so, but included in the Plus ticket price as are drinks. The flight attendants are always very accommodating and friendly and do a great job. I didn't use the entertainment system."
Cons: "Didn't care for the Turkey Crossient sandwich. All processed "Turkey" and very salty."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
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 over all star rating should have five stars. I mistakenly pressed something and it went to one And I could not figure out how to get it back to five. Everything was on time which I so appreciated."
Pros: "Flight attendants, movie on board, price"
Cons: "Plane was delayed and the baggage handlers in Denver were Atrocious!! I actually took video I was so shocked!"
Pros: "Great leg room...clean"
Cons: "All of the onboard staff was great except for one. She was visible grumpy. She was rude to an elderly couple sitting next to me. Her impatience with them ended up that she didn't get their drink order right. She challenged them on whether they really said they wanted milk and sugar or just sugar. Then she rolled her eyes and huffed and puffed about someone else waiting to get down the aisle after going to the bathroom. The client was had patience and was talking to those around her. The server was verbally frustrated and everyone knew by her words and facial expressions. There was an elderly lady with a cane who she was very brusk and impatient with. Her tone was condesending and dismissive."
Pros: "The luggage was taken good care of"
Cons: "There wasn’t any complimentary gluten free snacks :3"
Pros: "Everything from boarding early to funny safety announcement was awesome."
Cons: "I think they should remove the ability to have people lean back in their seats on the shorter flights. It’s clostraphobic when some feel they have to have a ‘lay back nap’ for such a short flight. It is like you have zero breathing room and feels like they are encroaching on my breathing space. People, the seats are already too close together must you lay back?"
Pros: "The service of the crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No food included just water and Coke."
Cons: "There was not much food to offer when they came to us."
Pros: "Our boarding agents were very helpful, courteous, and kind. They have a tough job, especially with all of the delays and fussy people. We were given quality service each time there was an interaction."
Cons: "We missed our layover flight due to a luggage error. Despite of this error, the agents we dealt with were very helpful. They got us on the next immediate flight with ease."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seats were too narrow, plane was changed to what looked like a smaller plane. Everything else wasn’t WestJet’s fault. Red eye flight and jerk behind me left his light on the whole flight and giy beside me kept rib checking me, preventing me from sleep. By the time plane landed I had been up 23 hours."
Pros: "Efficient service - boarding and arrival were on time."
Pros: "Easy boarding. The crew helped me with the car seat that was blocked with the seat belt. We got all our luggages in a short time and in good condition."
Cons: "WestJet connect not available on that flight. Bad weather in Montreal (scary landing)."
Pros: "The trip was uneventful........................................"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..............................................................."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. Very attentive to passenger needs and requests."
Cons: "Food choices were limited and they ran out of basic choice. Had very limited wine from menu - should really restock before a long flight like YVR to KOA."
Pros: "On time, clean, friendly staff."
Cons: "Crew missed me with the drink cart."
Pros: "Canadian airlunes are the worst nothing good about them"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "pilot should have informed us as soon as plane left gate that we would have extended delay due to missed take off window-we do expect some type of reimbursement!!"
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Pros: "The crew was patient and helpful and I know they were trying to make the best of a frustrating situation that was out of their control."
Cons: "There were multiple delays on my flight including us being boarded over a half hour late and then discovering the plane needed servicing so we had to be deboarded and delayed even further while they waited for a 2nd plane to become available."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Friendly WestJet Staff."
Cons: "Long hike to the plane but the price of airport expansion."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Late leaving, hot in plane, sat on tarmac for 40 mins"
Pros: "Crew was excellent especially Taylor"
Pros: "From check-in to cabin crew, everyone seemed helpful and knowledgeable. Flights on time, cabins clean and pleasant, seats comfortable, with good leg room."
Cons: "Entertainment a bit limited."
Pros: "We did not have to wait long in Calgary after landing and arriving at our luggage carousel. Our two bags were not only first off the belt but side-by-side and we were away in no time-- that never happens!"
Cons: "Didn't know I needed to download Westjet app before the flight and bring my own device"
Pros: "Easy boarding and unboarding"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth,the crew was excellent, and a very smooth flight."
Cons: "we sat in row 17 which was the last row to be served refreshments, when they finally got to us there were no sandwiches left and very little else to purchase."
Pros: "Liked the price and small airport in Abbotsford. No complaints."

The woman at check-in offered to put me in an earlier flight to Toronto. Was thrilled.

Generally friendly. Entertainment system did not work for entire flight.

Old plane

The problem was this trip was held due to connection from Halifax. My issue is with the Halifax leg which was delayed due to "cosmetic"problem on outside of plane. No communication to passengers about missing connecting flight in Toronto

In-flight temperature is just nice. It is difficult for passangers who are shorter to place their luggage into the overhead compartment. Sometimes, it is hard to find a space in the overhead compartment too. The flight attendants could be more helpful in finding a space and placing the luggage into the overhead compartment.

Pros: "I liked the 2-3-2 seat configuration so my husband and I could sit in a 2 seat row without being crowded in with anyone else. Those seats are tight!"
Cons: "Everything could have been better. Boarding was terrible. Apparently the Air Canada devices did not work at this gate? Because boarding was so delayed, we lost our spot to depart. We were stuck on the tarmac for an hour. The seats were too crammed together and very uncomfortable for a 4+ hour flight. Food service did come through, but they were out of most things. It’s advertised you can buy a meal/snack/drink combo but the drinks did not come through at the same time and that was a mess. There didn’t seem to be any air vents above the seats so the flight was very stuffy. We will never fly Rouge again."
Pros: "Amazing crews"
Cons: "Less option in special request in online. Gates and planes are not updated when applied online"
Cons: "Seats are always a pain in the butt Wifi has never worked for me -slow and keeps dropping"
Pros: "Flight delayed and changing of gates"
Cons: "To far from one gate to the other, you need a shuttle"
Pros: "Convenient quick. No stop overs"
Cons: "could have used more room"
Cons: "The food. Skip the cup of noodles."
Cons: "I fly 5+ times a year and I always have to take Air Canada. It isn't by choice. There is ALWAYS a delay or something is broken or the inbound plan had an issue etc. It could be a lot worse but it could be a hell of a lot better."
Pros: "The flight crew went the extra mile to give good service. There were plenty of meals and snacks throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms are cramped, they are clean however. Seats are also very close together, others must get out if you are in a middle or window seat."
Pros: "Friendly welcome onto the plane. Lots a of over head bag storage space. Fair movie selection. Comfortable and short dlight from YVR to YYZ."
Cons: "There's never anything that looks that appetizing on the menu for the those prices. I brought my own food onto the flight."
Pros: "On board entertainment"
Cons: "No real food for purchase"
Pros: "Flight pretty much on time"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "After my checking-in, I was told I was not allowed boarding without an eTA, which was never informed me before. And I could not get an eTA at that time. Terrible! I am seeking for a compensation from Air Canada. If only you could help."
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
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: "any such long flight is not really enjoyable"
Pros: "Are they ever friendly? Concerned about their customers? It's unreal how indifferent they are to your time and comfort!"
Pros: "Considering it was a tiny aircraft the flight went very smoothly."
Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."
Pros: "The flight attendant helped me find my gate which wad nice seeing I didn't have a long layover."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, flight was delayed, in the back row so couldn't recline seat, sat right next to bathroom, and the only attendant was busy all it took a long time to get her attention."
Pros: "nithing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour, and a number of passengers lost connecting flights. The customer service was very uncooperative in rescheduling flights for us. in my case again the rescheduled flight was inoperative in the next day. Air Canada has been very disappointing in service. I really hope that I will be able adhere to my promise to myself not to fly with Air Canada in my life."
Pros: "The ever wonderful Air Canada cancelled a bunch of the flights that I had originally booked 2 months before I left and marooned me in the Toronto airport for an 8 hour layover on my way home. Unacceptable. No reason given, no apology made, nothing."
Pros: "When you plan travel over the Holiday season you expect hiccups and huge crowds and a lot of grumpy people in unrealistic hurries....his the me was not like that at all. Everyone was great except for security in Calgary!!! Don't know what the deal was but they set a record for the slowest I have EVER been in. It took so s almost an hour and there were not that many people in line...it was epic"
Cons: "AIr Canada lost my luggage and the return flight was late"
Cons: "N/c"
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: "they made a bunch of people check bags for plane which normally in my past experience has just gate checked larger bags. i'm not sure why they needed to check the bags, and we got away with not having to do that, but it seemed unnecessary"
Pros: "Food was not included in a 5 1/2 hour flight. Which it should be."
Cons: "Taxied to runway, but had to go back to terminal due to one seat not staying in upright position. Flight was about an hour late then."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "Ease of using in air entertainment w my own device"
Cons: "Lights, reading, did not work in our row. Very disengaged attendants stats yes that they needed to be reset. When we asked the 3 rd time she said she'd get us a light to use, never did. When requesting extra water and coffee we were directed to the rear of the plane to get our own refills. Toilet not clean paper empty. Crew on long, raucous break. Finally crew seen taking coffee pots into lavatory. What on earth? There was a distinct lack of engagement from the crew, in general with passengers , not just my husband and myself."
Pros: "Prompt and friendly service, comfortable and clean."
Pros: "When my food was late they refunded it"
Cons: "The boarding times were quite far behind The lack of TVs was unfortunate, and renting an ipad instead for more money is cheap."
Pros: "The crew was doing the best they could and was professional."
Cons: "Where to start, I have taken Air Canada 1 time before to Regina and you lost my luggage, luckily it was on the flight home. This time check in was very disorganized and unprofessional (I got scolded when my luggage bumped the post that forms the line that was set up after half the passengers were there making the last to show up first in line.) The flight was delayed and hour for a broken air mask upon departure . The monitor screens were hard to see and harder to hear. Upon arrival we sat for 30 minutes because they couldn't shut the engines down. Customs was a breeze but the walk from terminal to customize to the next terminal had me winded, luckily my connecting Air Canada flight was late also . And this was the better part of my experience. My flight to Athens was miserable ( lots of screaming children spread out through the plane). And when I thought it was over my luggage was separated and lost for 3 days. I should send you the underwear as a reminder of my experience"
Pros: "My scren was´t working ok, and the screen of my sister seat was in ¨wait please..¨ half of the trip. The boarding wasn´t on time but the crew memebers where really nice. Overall okey"
Cons: "This was an absolutely terrible flying experience. Our flight from Toronto to Vancouver was delayed by almost 5 hours, which meant I missed my connection to Victoria. Almost no information was given about what to expect about our onward travel connections in Vancouver (most people had connections). I was told that not only would AC book me on an alternate flight, but there would be an agent to meet us with information about baggage, hotel stays, etc. There was no such agent. An agent was only available for folks connecting long-haul to Sydney, Australia, but for no other destinations. I tried to call the airline directly to get information, and kept being told "you will have to speak to someone at the airport". No information was given about where my bags where, whether they would be at the airport or about my connecting flight. I was also told that if I chose to stay in a hotel I would need to pay out of pocket and then seek reimbursement. Unwilling to take the risk of not getting reimbursed, I, like many of my fellow travellers, chose to suck it up and sleep on the floor at the airport. They also failed to tell me that I would need a brand new boarding pass, so after waiting 30m to get through security, I then was sent back to wait another 30m to "check in" yet again and get another boarding pass. This was absolutely one of the worst flying experiences I've had recently, and it utterly frustrates me that AC has a near-monopoly on Canadian air travel. I live in Victoria and will likely go back to what I did in the past, which was take sea travel to Seattle and fly from there just to avoid Air Canada."
Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."
Cons: "My luggage got lost. That happens sometimes. It showed up in NY after 2 days, but did not arrive at my house until FIVE days later. And even then, the delivery company contracted by air canada would not bring it to my front door, so I had to leave my building to go meet them. With small kids in the house and being home alWhy is this my responsibility?"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great."
Cons: "No snacks."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst customer service. They closed the check in line as we stood there and than asked us to book another 3000$ flight!"
Pros: "The flight crew were nice and friendly, though they weren't very on top of trash pickup, but they were chipper and that's always better than grumpy crew that are super-efficient. Also, our luggage made it with us despite a tight connection."
Cons: "53 minute hold time to call center (before my call was even answered) to order vegetarian meals for flight (the day before flight) -wish that could be done online, vegetarian meal request not transferred to new flight after we missed our initial flight due to first flight delay, lights not working properly for half of flight (sleeping child under spotlight), the pasta dish, collecting garbage in my seat throughout flight (particularly after meal service), cramped seating, lack of entertainment, and they are now charging for alcoholic beverages on international flights. I'm not a big drinker, but I still enjoyed that perk."
Pros: "Things were very good. Staff was freindly."
Cons: "The internet wasn't working but not a problem for a 1 hour flight."
Pros: "Food for purchase options and entertainment."
Cons: "Crew is so slow!!!"
Pros: "Did like the crew but didn't like the food at all.was really bad. It was cold very cold and the screen didn't work so I couldn't see the movies."
Pros: "Flight was delayed three times, gate constantly changing too. Money even replaced croissants/pastries in the Vancouver business lounge with toast to save money; the only hot breakfast now at 9.30 is a vat of porridge."
Cons: "The plane itself was in good condition, and the crew were capable and pleasant. The in-air experience was much better than the on-the-ground experience."
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride"
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer. Did provide a $10 meal voucher. Good to know Air Canada values my total trip delay time at $2/hr"
