Not only was my bag not on the flight. They didn't notify me until 7pm where my bag was. My flight was at 10:35am. I was left for 2 days without a toothbrush and lotion, face cream and charger and clothing. I still haven’t actually received my bag but they say it’s on the next flight. Major hassle. So rude that they must have known right away my bag wasn’t on the flight but they failed to let anyone know. I thought my luggage was stolen at the baggage claim. Major stress. Messing up my vacation. They want me to submit receipts to compensate for me having to to buy replacement stuff but the damages were more than just having to buy a new toothbrush. It was the stress and anxiety that was the major problem.
Cons: "I don’t like the charge for checked bag. It encourages people to bring too many and too large bags onto the plane."
Cons: "Getting from one flight to the other was a major hassle. How many times do they have to check your boarding pass?"
Pros: "The crew worked hard to ensure that we had a good flight with minimal interruptions"
Cons: "Delays always hurt, the flight was delayed yet there were no notifications and additionally the delay was closer to an hour long since boarding only started 20 minutes late."
Pros: "Very kind. Gave my daughter an extra snack because we had not had a solid meal in a while."
Cons: "Boarding process is never good. Obviously need to board the plane from the back to the front in reverse numerical order."
Pros: "On-time flight, satisfactory crew."
Cons: "Seat felt cramped (not helped by overweight guy next to me), plane was warm with very mediocre airflow, window seat was missing window."
Pros: "The crew went out of his way to help us!"
Cons: "The landing was the worst I have ever experienced! Must be a student pilot or something! Been traveling for many years and never once vomit! I almost did in this flight! twice!!"
Cons: "No explanation was given why flight left almost 2 hours late"
Cons: "Don't like having to download app for entertainment....some devices not current enough to download.. Not everyone has devices Kids disappointed..prefer Alaska monitors"
Cons: "Issue handling for delay"
Cons: "Can't expect anything from seat sale flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Nice staff."
Cons: "Poor entertainment. I usually watch movies on my iPad but there was no wifi and the available TV shows were not to my taste, the screens were small and not clear. The magazine was boring, no games to play. Flight delayed an hour for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Pleasant Staff Great flight"
Cons: "that i paid to get a seat next to my brother and the plane was not full and people got to sit where they liked. it cost me more money for nothing."
Pros: "Arriving early!"
Cons: "Taking off late."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Pros: "On time flight, great staff. Within Canada I will only fly Westjet."
Cons: "I assume the in flight entertainment was lame. Who uses that? Just give us a basic (no streaming) WiFi connection."
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: "Everything was superb. Westjet Rocks"
Cons: "Liked Everything"
Pros: "Easy check in and nice crew!!!! No complaints at all!!! I would fly them again!!! I would definitely recommend them to others!"
Pros: "Very enjoyable flight!! The crew was amazing and funny!! It was a great experience and will definitely fly WestJet again!!"
Pros: "The stewards were great however no TV anymore and meals because of cost cutting was where we thought it was lacking."
Cons: "Refer to above :"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but it was due to weather, so it is really out of westjets hands."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Pros: "The staff and comfort."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "While the flight took off 30 minutes late, the pilot made up the time in air."
Pros: "From my arrival to the airport until landing in Las Vegas everything was smooth. I arrived on time with no hiccups."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike. I have a great service and will fly with Westjet again. Highly recommended. No delays. No issues"
Cons: "The reasons that I book with Westjet are that the attendants joke with each other, appear to really enjoy their jobs, and provide over the top customer service. On this flight no one was jovial or smiling, the garbage sat on our trays for the majority of the flight. The attendants spoke to each other more than the passengers. Very disappointing!"
Pros: "It was great experience once again. I always travel with WestJet as it is always on time."
Cons: "That every time I travel I always get the farthest seat if not on #28 it's 24...wish next time I can get in the middle at least. Other than that all is good."
Pros: "New food items were good"
Cons: "boarding is still an adventure outside the gates. Jostled about 30 times by flight attendants in my aisle seat. Almost seemed intentional!"
Cons: "no entertainment at all. boarding proccedure at LGA absolutely sucked. the zone system was ignored and we were herded in like sheep. No need for that at all. uncaring staff at the counter."
Pros: "Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it."
Cons: "No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me."
Pros: "reasonably priced ticket for a no-frills short haul flight. no complaints."
Cons: "Slight delay, but not much communications re the incident"
Cons: "The media system barely worked."
Cons: "Not one complaint"
Pros: "I arrived early to insure that I didn't run into the same troubles as my previous flight when I missed my flight through no fault of my own. This flight was much better organized and went without any issues."
Cons: "I like the concept of boarding a plane by zone however if Westjet doesn't enforce it then the zone loading is nothing but theory. Time to put it into practice Westjet."
Cons: "Food options not much variety"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive. They still give away snacks too which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked about the flight other than the discomfort of the seats, but there is nothing they could have really done to change that!"
Pros: "Not often do you feel like you really "welcomed aboard." This was not the case on our flights to and from Calgary. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. That was refreshing. I did like the Westjet Connect feature. You don't have a TV screen in the back of each seat. You download the app and you get to watch TV, Movies, News all on your own device for free. A nice plus is that you can change all your devices with USB power port at each seats you never run out of a charge."
Cons: "The only thing that I did dislike was on the return we flew a 737-600 which did not leg room like the 737-800 we flew on first. The under seat storage is skimpy in the middle seat where an entertainment server is located"
Cons: "I was able to download the WestJet Connect app on my phone which gives you access to tv shows and movies to watch on your own device during the flight. The app was free and easy to use and there was a decent selection. However, the wifi on board is not free so even though you could watch the tv show/movie - the sound did not work unless you paid for it. There are many other airlines that offers everything for free - it would have been a more pleasant if we were able to actually utilize the service."
Pros: "Start the flight a bit earlier than scheduled, so we arrive a bit earlier too. The flight is smooth."
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: "Flight was late leaving ywg"
Cons: "Service was cursory"
Cons: "The plane was delayed due to waiting for people to clear customs."
Pros: "Movie options were good. Nothing else."
Pros: "Air Canada is always a great travel experience."
Cons: "The food is terrible. It's the worst I've had from any airline."
Pros: "Did not board because you screwed up my reservation"
Cons: "Not screwing up my reservation!"
Pros: "Crew was responsive"
Cons: "Late departure, sitting on the tarmack for hours, most uncomfortable seats"
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: "Exit seating with more leg room."
Cons: "No power plugs in a 4h+ flight is not acceptable. That should be standard for every passengers. Unclean seats. General abrasiveness from some of the staff."
Pros: "Convenient quick. No stop overs"
Cons: "could have used more room"
Pros: "The flight boarded quickly and even though we were at the back of the line there was still overhead bin space for our carry on luggage. The in-flight entertainment worked well on our iPads (no need to rent one) and the stewards always had smiles on their faces. The flight left on time and landed a few minutes early which is a bonus when you are on vacation."
Pros: "Free soft drinks /tea On time nice staff Clean cabin well organized"
Cons: "No free food Completely booked. no video monitors"
Pros: "The extra $50 seats were roomy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no one knew why!... Plane had been sitting ready at the airport for hours. Novice flight attendants, they each picked on different things others missed just before them. No consistency, seats left reclined during takeoff and landing for example. One way there was drink service once even though it was a smooth flight and the return had drink service twice even though it was bumpier! Entertainment does NOT work on androids, it is NOT the AirCanada app they tell you to download prior to the flight, it's an AirCanadaRouge.pk file that needs to be downloaded in flight! Which means we're stuck paying for the iPad and of course only with cc because there's no wifi for debit cards.... AC needs to stop this insanely mediocre and yet expensive monopoly."
Pros: "Crew is always courteous"
Cons: "I barely made it on time because my prior flight was delayed"
Pros: "We had a trip planned for Las Vegas on the Wednesday following the sad and tragic shooting at the Mandalay Bay hotel. We were planning to be at the Luxor next door. Because of this proximity to the horrible scene we could not see completing this trip. The Air Canada staff understood and accommodated our need change plans. They arranged for us to fly directly home rather than to our planned stop in Las Vegas."
Pros: "No built in entertainment systems. YES PLEASE. Built entertainment systems take up room, sometimes have screens that can't be turned off, and some generate a lot of heat. So glad they were removed. The built in streaming service is a much better solution. Crew was fine."
Cons: "Seats are just ridiculously close. This makes boarding take longer. I don't think emergency evacuation is feasible. Have seats this close been tested for evacuations? Knees-touching-the-seat-in-front close. Taller people can't sit with legs straight in front. Eat before your flight."
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Cons: "Worst leg room I have ever seen and I fully over 20 + times a year!"
Pros: "I appreciated that the plane left as scheduled, had plenty of legroom, and was attended by professional and gracious personnel."
Cons: "THe previous flight that we took, on June 20th, from Las Vegas to Toronto, was cancelled at the last minute. As we had a tightly-scheduled flight to Amsterdam, we missed that connection. There was no notification given prior to the cancellation, just suddenly came up on the monitors at McCarren Airport. No explanation was offered. THe flight that we were transferred to arrived in Toronto too late to get us onto our Amsterdam flight, and so Air Canada personnel gave us vouchers for food and tried to book us a hotel room. We were ferried to 3 hotels, and turned away at all of them, an dwound up sleeping on the flor of the kid's area at TOranto Airport. we finally got to Amsterdam a day late.and had our trip upgraded to business class for our trouble. I have no quarrel with the treatment that we received from Air Canada personel. THey were very patient and gracious, in spite of a number of irate passengers in the same situation that we were in. However, the failure to have accomodations for stranded travelers was exemplary of poor planning on the part of administration, not personnel. I am really torn as to whether or not to use Air Canada again. WHen it is good, it is very good, but when iit is bad, it is the worst that I've ever experienced."
Pros: "It's Vegas, what's not t like!"
Cons: "Plane ride home after 4 nights in Vegas..."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "No flight attendant came during the entire course of the flight, even after I had pressed the button for one. One flight attendant was extremely hostile. Horrible experiencing flying to Vancouver from Vegas."
Cons: "There was a very long line to check in, the gate was changed prior to the flight, we couldn't get to the gate because the doors were locked, we had to stand there waiting for 30 minutes, and the flight was delayed by 90 minutes"
Cons: "Disgustlingly rowdy, drunk, loud, and vulgar passengers unchecked by the flight crew."
Pros: "Nothing. I spent the whole 5+ hour flight cursing (in my mind) the entire Air Canada executive team. This was my first, and will be my last trip on this horrible airline."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. I'm assuming that all Air Canada executives are either very short people, or they've never tested their product. I've never flown on such an absurdly uncomfortable airline seat configuration, and I fly over 100,000 miles a year worldwide (including discount airlines in China!). If you have long legs, and your flight is more that two hours, DO NOT fly Air Canada Rouge. You've been warned!"
Cons: "When I am willing to purchase overpriced food on a plane, please at least have what I would like from the menu. On my flight to Canada and from Canada to Las Vegas I ordered food and had to settle on what they had available because I was so hungry. As soon as I asked for food, the crew should know what is and isn't available. Food was ok, whoever shot the pictures for the menu did a fantastic job of making it look good. Chicken wrap was good."
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "I had a window seat and there really wasn't a lot of leg room because of how the body of the plane curves. Food was ok. Not a lot of elbow room to eat."
Pros: "It got to Vegas on time and my luggage was there, too."
Cons: "Rouge has less space per person than Spirit. I never thought that could be possible."
Pros: "I had leg room where I was seated. Short flight."
Cons: "I had to be moved a second time during my travel. No entertainment. So far, the most uncomfortable connection Ive had in my trip. The emergency door i was sitting next to was leaking water, which kinda worried me."
Cons: "Kayak failed to notify us of a change in our flight of four hours and change of route"
Pros: "The personnel were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "AC Rouge domestic flight was horrible. Tiny seats that reclined about 1.5 inches jammed together. Not that size plane's original configuration I'm sure. Absolutely miserable. The personnel were all very nice and competent--I felt sorry for them having to work in such an environment. I've been in small African airline's planes which were small but not that uncomfortable."
Pros: "Airline attendants were fantastic. Boarding was efficient. I never tried the food so I can't attest to that."
Cons: "Space was so cramped it was crazy - I had a prior Air Canada flight experience that was very comfortable, but if I was 6" taller in this flight I would have been pissed."
Cons: "Spending the entire flight with my knees wedged into the the back of the seat in front of me was painful. I'm 6'2" which is not unusually tall. So greedy and careless for Air Canada to put the seat rows so close, selling an extra row of seats while causing pain for all the tall passengers."
Pros: "I liked the flight"
Cons: "There was no space around your seats No free food or snacks offered, just soft drinks No big screens for watching movies Not enough bathrooms"
Pros: "The flight was on time and efficient"
Cons: "The seats have gotten so small and the rows are so close together that you feel like so many sardines in a can. The airlines have added extra rows to these planes to increase their revenues at the expense of the customer."
Pros: "food and beverage service"
Cons: "Lack of organization at boarding; zones need to line up in specific areas and board sequentially. Boarding was chaos."
Cons: "No leg room, no tv's and no chargers."
Pros: "Attractive and competent flight attendants What a soft landing"
Cons: "Water tasted off Leg room inadequate for 6'1" person French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Pros: "Plane was on time and flight was comfortable."
Cons: "There was no free food - that would be impossible in Europe."
Pros: "I wish I would have been entitled to check at least 1 luggage without a charge"
Cons: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "There was no TV on plane , the seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "They were on time. We weren't told of any mechanical issues with the plane that could cause delays. Stewardess were helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Clean airplane Helpful crew Overall great experience"
Pros: "Fast and easy check in"
Cons: "The security at the airport kept calling me a prostitute and verbally harassed me at the secondary inspection room. They looked down on my because I'm an orphan. Plus my luggage got lost as soon as I landed on Vegas, the staff were rude to me and gave me attitude."
Cons: "Bought this trip last minute as I had a meeting to get to the next morning and there had been an issue with my other flight. Arrived early for the flight at 6am in the morning and was told it wasn't going until 2.40pm that afternoon because of a maintenance issue. Was not notified, air canada said it was a non refundable ticket and I missed my meeting. Terrible service and they were not flexible at all. Only bought this new ticket because my existing ticket was not able to get me to my meeting on time, so it was a complete waste of money"
Pros: "I haven't flown in a while and used the USB and 120V outlet with was supplied."
Cons: "As the plane was changed, I needed to check my carryon bag as there wasn't enough space available."
Cons: "Time it took to board"
Pros: "no entertainment no food (or to pay snacks , but cannot call that food ) seat designed for kids price average , even not cheap"
Cons: "I have nothing to say about the flight, was good enough."
Cons: "Media player change wasn't advertised"
