Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."
Pros: "Great service by crew!"
Cons: "Took too long to get on board."
Cons: "This is the second flight in a row in which Delta has either cancelled or rescheduled my flight at the last minute.

Pros: "customer siervice was great and welcoming was awesome"
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Pros: "On time departure; good updates by flight deck; luggage arrived unscathed."
Cons: "Once beverage service was complete, flight attendants retreated to the back of the plane. On a 4-hour flight, it would have been nice to have someone come by and ask if we needed anything, such as water, coffee, or juice. Granola bar was good."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, boarding went smooth and flight was on time... No complaints!"
Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."

Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"
Pros: "Great staff, quick service."
Pros: "I got home."

Pros: "Just to clean the cabin a bit more and the folding table tops. thanks!"
Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."

Pros: "Row to myself"
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: "Quick flight. Quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "Snacks are kinda lame."
Cons: "The gate in Calgary took approximately 45 minutes to allow off the plane . We arrived early but by the time we were able to leave the plane , boarding for our next flight had already begun.

Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "I missed the connection."
Cons: "Making my connection"
Pros: "Crew not attentive unless you were in club class"
Cons: "Didn’t really expect much it was okay"

Pros: "The staff on board made us completely forget we just experienced a terrible 6 hour experience in the hands of westjet from punta cana. The airport staff and security were efficient and all friendly. Helped us every step of the way. But again, a big thank you to the 4 flight attendants on the ws 254 to Halifax. Made our crappy day much better simply by being a friendly and happy face."
Cons: "Didnt like having to connect but understand that was to my own booking."
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Pros: "On time schedule"
Pros: "We were late getting to YUL because of traffic, and a West Jet employee went above and beyond to make sure we made it on our flight even though we missed the cut-off time."
Pros: "Smooth ride all the way and picked up time with each flight."
Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Pros: "I lol ke the crew !!"
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: "Good quick boarding, left on time. Quick luggage at destination."
Cons: "Getting told to leave the plus section while waiting for the washroom. Too cautious with the tiniest bit of turbulence and the seatbelt sign left on for probably 30 minutes too long."
Cons: "The waiting The late flight. Sat in TO Pierson for 3 hrs just to get this connection. That was after a 14 hr international flight."
Cons: "- Booked using points & not offered the option to pre-order a meal - only non perishable food choices on board - flight delayed, crew at gate not well informed"
Pros: "I liked how quickly the flight was. I believe they actually made better time than what was originally estimated. I was also able to get my checked luggage as soon as I got to the carousel."
Pros: "good looking crew members"
Cons: "ugly pilot"
Pros: "Food was OK and the crew were ok."
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave a t 1045. Half an hour before the flight was to depart we were told that the plane is her, but it is in the hangar and they are trying to get it to the terminal for loading. (can you believe) Once it miraculously got to the terminal the crew had to do a safety check etc etc and we boarded the flight 30 minutes after scheduled departure time. We were then informed that the plane had to be fuelled with 20,000 lbs of fuel while we were boarded. This took another 20 minutes. Then they had to de ice. We departed 1 hour after the scheduled time. They ran out of meals on row 14. The entertainment system did not work. When the fasten seat belt sign was on and an announcement came on to stay in your seats, people were wandering around aimlessly and the crew never enforced the announcement. All in all a less than satisfactory experience and an airline I would not fly again if I can help it."
Cons: "Generally announcemect is too fast and not clear, especially the boarding anouncement regarding the order of boarding is not clear. Please be more considerate for the aged and hard of hearing, infrequent traveller."
Pros: "Getting on in Palm springs and getting off in Winnipeg. Thanks WestJet"
Cons: "Not knowing to download The app until I was on the plane"
Pros: "Not much.... so..so"
Cons: "Crew. & entertainment ( why pay for it )"
Pros: "On time, clean, friendly staff."
Cons: "Crew missed me with the drink cart."
Pros: "I am mute and the staff was generally good at accommodating my communication methods. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight experience ever)"
Cons: "Staff updated my status to Deaf passenger without my knowledge. I am not Deaf, my hearing is fine and I understand English perfectly. I have no problem understanding the safety messaging. I am mute, I can't talk, that's all. I try not to misrepresent myself so that I don't take resources from Deaf people, so this frustrated me. also, I guess WestJet changed food policy again, now MUST pre order food, because no food was available on the flight if not Plus."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Quick boarding and quick to disembark."
Cons: "tiny! you get what you pay for with a turbo prop."
Pros: "Excellent flight got in half hour early. Which was quickly eaten up by ground staff at airport not being prepared broken people movers and waiting for luggage. But the flight was half hour early LoL."
Cons: "Man claimed he didn't like flying and this was an excuse to get drunk! Please be more smart serve concious. People staying at the same hotel in Barbados claimed he was fished out of the pool twice! And he got on the park and fly bus"
Cons: "It took an hour and a half for the flight attendant to reach the fifth row to offer refreshment an then announced they had run out of red wine. Apparently she failed to check the stock before departure."
Pros: "They brought the movie thingy out right away and managed to watch 2 movies made the whole trip thanks west jet"
Cons: "Always the food seems like every sandwich has cheese in it or sausages. Meat both have dairy and I have dairy allergies it makes it hard how about a good old tuna sandwich (not old) u just get a well made sticker and put it on the old menu"
Pros: "Canadian airlunes are the worst nothing good about them"
Pros: "mostly everything that an airline can offer is always on par !"
Cons: "seat sealction - I've booked in advice but seat selection is always a headache. I prefer to have front seats (closes to front in econly class, emergency area) but I got stuck all the way in the back by the washrooms. It would be amazing if on my way back to Calgary I can have a better option?"
Pros: "WestJet staff and crew fantastic"
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed other then that was great"
Pros: "Smoot boarding on time leaving earlier they were we supposed to be everything will be smooth"
Pros: "My daughter ordered the tickets for us but she didn't pick seats. We forget to pre checked in, either. Our flight was very full so We are so lucky got the first class seats! This is the first time in our life with first class experiences! It was on the July 4th and saw a lots of fireworks in the airplane! We are so exciting! Thank you for West Jet Airline!"
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!"
Pros: "The crew and staff as a whole were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing to be honest was a great experience"
Pros: "WestJet staff very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "Toronto airport needs clearer signage - very confusing"
Pros: "A few days before our flight to Halifax which was originally scheduled with a stop over in Toronto, we received an email from Westjet that they were putting us on the direct flight. This enabled us to avoid the Toronto bottleneck and get to our destination on time. Thank you Westjet."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "First time WestJet flyer - I flew four segments - each one was late leaving and arriving."
Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Seat space is too cramped"
Pros: "The crew was very accomodating and the entertainment was nice"
Cons: "It is too crammed on this type of plane. Having three columns of three seats, four seats, and three seats is a bit too much. It seemed this type of plane is going for quantity instead of quality."
Cons: "We had a 5:35 am flight and the plane was 1/2 hour late to gate. By the time it got there, we spent over 1 hour sitting at gate loaded up waiting for weather to clear. It was fine when it was supposed to be there. Therefore, this was not initially a weather issue. Our connecting flight is 12 hours after Our schedules flight. I have a 1 year old toddler. Customer service rep less than sympathetic personality."
Cons: "Curt and rude"
Cons: "2h delay because of technical issues"
Pros: "got an upgrade to Business Class but on those small flight - meh"
Cons: "The recline didn't work nor did the sound on my TV."
Pros: "Convenient quick. No stop overs"
Cons: "could have used more room"
Pros: "The seating is well laid out and the service aboard the flight was excellent. Wonderful duck entree."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "This flight was overbooked and even though I booked in November for this Dec 30th flight I was given a seat 30 cm across from the bathroom. The crew area for meal Preparation etc was also directly behindmy seat. Needless to say, I got no sleep on this eight hour flight, had to endure disgusting smells from the bathroom and people hitting my seat every time they passed by bc this is an area where there is not usually a seat. Everyone waiting for the bathroom was in my bubble. To add salt in the wound, the TV and light for reading also did not work. This was the worst flight I've ever had and I feel Air Canada put these 2 seats there as a money grab. No one should ever have to sit there, especially when paying full price."
Pros: "I like that we made it safely."
Cons: "The crew seemed to not like their job and were very short with customers."
Pros: "This flight did have in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was only 2 hrs. So nothing to complain about"

Cons: "Declined !!!! So long"
Pros: "I didn't really like breakfast but I am glad we had it."
Cons: "While the plane was circling in a holding pattern our luggage was left out in the snow for over an hour. My one bag was wet when I got it and my other bag didn't arrive. And because there were no Air Canada workers at the desk in Philly no one could tell me where my bag was. It was a very stressful end to a long series of flights."
Pros: "there was an incident before take off with a man and woman arguing on the plane. she seemed drunk and he ended up punching her in the head. the crew called security and they were asked to leave. never saw them again. excellent handling by Air flight attendants and security"
Cons: "no access to news channels on tv"
Pros: "I paid a nominal fee to get an exit row. I have a perpetually sore hip and I had a pain-free flight."
Pros: "Good price for flight ticket"
Cons: "Pressed the service bell mutiple over 30 minutes, no one came. Had to get out of my seat and walk to the back of the plane where I found all the attendants having a chat. Not even a sorry from them."
Pros: "The flight was on time!!"
Cons: "I find over the past 25 years that I have been flying with Air Canada the customer service has really went to the dumps !!! Every body is rude and don't understand why."
Cons: "I had a special service request and it was not honored, not sure if it was due to flight delays or just not good customer service, I was disappointed because my flight changes three times before the trip and I placed two calls to the airline prior to trip to ensure my special needs were requested and confirmed."
Pros: "Staff communicated delays well, and they were polite once we got going. In flight entertainment offered was good, but heard some passengers having trouble with their screens not working."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. Theme of my vacation. When we arrived in Dallas we had no idea what baggage claim we were supposed to be at. There was no announcement, flight information displays didn't say anything."
Pros: "Very accommodating and friendly staff. Very attentive to our needs."
Cons: "The selection of entertainment onboard to pass the time (eg movies, TV shows, etc..). It could of been better."
Cons: "There was a yappy dog on the flight which the owner kept outside of the kennel for much of the flight. This is a serious security and health safety breach. One of the flight attendants said "I have a dog so I understand" and let he continue to kee the dog outside the kennel. Flight from hell."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and helpful!"
Cons: "This was the last leg of a 24 hour journey from Venice to Seattle for my sister and me. After having a 3 1/2 hour layover, our plane was supposed to leave at 6:30 PM and kept getting delayed. One of the biggest frustrations was the lack of communication by the staff! We could see them at the counter where our gate was but no one would come out and talk to us! Our plane finally got off the ground at 8:30 PM!"
Pros: "I was barred from traveling, because Air Canada did not specify that an in-transit visa was necessary for South Africans traveling through their country to the US (where I am a graduate student at the University of Chicago). This blatant discrimination nearly caused me to be arrested and deported from China. It is also utterly unacceptable that Air Canada at no point tried to arrange an alternative flight and told to "just get another direct flight" as if buying plane tickets is in fact like taking the bus."

It is also utterly unacceptable that Air Canada at no point tried to arrange an alternative flight and told to "just get another direct flight" as if buying plane tickets is in fact like taking the bus."
Pros: "Prompt and courteous. The Embraer was not new, but in good shape. Entertainment was minimal - especially in comparison to the Dreamliner we flew from Europe to Toronto. The flight from Toronto to Denver was about 4 hours long, but the only included refreshments offered were sodas, water, or juice. Air Canada could do better on the food front. (Other food was available for purchase.)"
Cons: "A lady threw up on my hardcover book. And I had to move from a windo to a middle seat. Overall it was not a nice experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed - no problem. But. Then kept getting delayed til I knew my connecting flight was missed. Talked to gate attandent who could care less. Told me and many others not her problem. Need to talk to someone in Toronto. Fortunately in Toronto they took care of things"
Pros: "Was moved to a nonstop Flight when my original two segment flight was delayed!! Arrived and hour before scheduled."
Cons: "There was a technical problem and Air Canada kept us inside for 1h and 30m! Horrible! Also when the service came to my row there was not much food option to choose from"
Pros: "Great attention from staff towards patrons."
Cons: "The late boarding, the delay to liftoff"
Pros: "Super sweet and chatty flight attendant and check in agent the second day."
Cons: "Not the airline's fault but our flight got cancelled once we were already in the take off track due to bad weather in NYC (heavy rain!!!???) Having gone through US customs and the long way of security and check in and all. We were carrying 7 big bags as we were moving into the US and handling those many bags was a nightmare, we had to do it two days in a row!!! I lost a night booked in a hotel in NYC as I didn't know if we were getting a later flight until just too late to cancel. Very confusing to get to the right place to rebook, even Air Canada employees seemed confused. Rebooking agent took ages. We had paid for preference seats and finally we got terrible last row seats in the rebooked flight. We haven't been refunded since!! Delays and more delays on the rebooked flight again."
Pros: "In spite of the issues with the equipment (screens & lights) he crew was very reactive and listen to our request."
Cons: "The screens of an entire row didn't work at all making it impossible to watch movies, listen to music or watch the flight's info. On top of that, when I wanted to read, I figured the light above my seat did not work either."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"
Pros: "Nothing, this was the worst flight ever. Delays, no communication, lacked proper updates, ground time,.."
Cons: "Everything, the plane left late. So my bags got lost. The person loading the bags, which I could see from my window, moved at an incredible slow pace and seemed like it took an hour till he was done loading the bags"
Pros: "May eventually get home."
Cons: "Damn Turkey political instability!"
Pros: "Good food for transatlantic flight"
Cons: "The headline says it all. Even though our bags met the carry-on size conditions, we were told we must check them because they were overweight. We've never had them weighed before, including the Air Canada trip to Dublin from the states. "It's ok, they'll be there when you get there." We've been home about 24 hours and they haven't located the bags yet, so no word on when they will be sent to us. Very poor online and phone customer service."
Cons: "No TV on an eight hour flight. Food was terrible!"
Pros: "2 seats together"
Cons: "no wine with dinner awful service felt we were bothering the staff movies on AC app were awful food was awful damaged brand new luggage and said they didn't cover the damage awful awful awful"
Cons: "Did not fly Air Canada from Phoenix to Toronto; flew much cheaper version "Rouge". Flight was delayed more than 40 minutes in Phoenix while cargo rearranged, making us late for connection in Toronto (1.5 hour layover initially). Stewardess told us we could make flight if we ran through airport, but when we got to the gate, we were told that we had been rescheduled on another flight 2 days later! Crew on flight did not tell us this. We did manage to get another flight to Frankfurt 2 hours later on Air Canada, then to Barcelona on Lufthansa, arriving 8 hours later than originally scheduled. Rouge flight had fewer amenities than Southwest and less legroom. Did not know what were getting when booked flight -Will never fly Rouge again!"
Pros: "flight was mostly empty so I can go sit somewhere else"
Cons: "I am only 6 feet tall, and my legs do not fit in those seats there is not physically enough room between the back of the seat and the back of the next seat for my legs to fit there"
Pros: "The flight attendants and pilots do as much as they can to mitigate a truly awful travel experience."
Cons: "There is nothing about the experience that can be recommended. The seat layout is cramped and awful, the entertainment options are half-baked. Even the food is several notches below what you'd get on a normal Air Canada fight. This version of the airline is a national embarrassment."
Pros: "Effective. Good crew. No (bad) surprises."
Pros: "Nice crew & good entertainment app"
Cons: "No space at all. Despite 5-hour length, no complementary food. Will not willingly choose Rouge unless it is the only option"
