Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was good. Now fast but good."
Cons: "The food was pretty basic."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants was very rude & keep harassing me about my emotional support dog, I was a real animal hater, the complaint is to long to list here, never experienced such a rude flight attendant in all my years of flying , I filed a official complaint with delta."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment, speed of flight"
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "-forgot to charge me for wine"
Cons: "-chair was broken -tray was broken -had to spend $33 for wifi that didn't even work -didn't have everything they say they offer to guests on the flight"
Pros: "Plane clean."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding at LGA."
Pros: "The tv on the back of the headrest was great."
Cons: "Too much chatter over the intercom."
Pros: "i got to Atlanta safely"
Cons: "what can cookies and a cup of juice do for me with all the delays ? i was hungry and tired. Seriously DELTA, it was a horrible time. i deserved a compensation from Delta for the entire day."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating and friendly."
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"
Pros: "I have not traveled on Delta for years. And this experience was great checking to boardING then the service was great. But I have to back up. The customer service on the phone that helped me adjust my flight, she was great. So I have to say delta was great"
Cons: "The first class food was okay for the length of the flight."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Flight was fast and direct."
Cons: "Flight left 45 minutes late because the crew wasn't there."
Pros: "I loved getting an email with my baggage claim number."
Cons: "The food was the same snack they give in the evening and afternoon, even though it was morning- pretzel, peanuts, or cookies."
Pros: "flight itself was fine"
Cons: "When we arrived in LGA, the luggage conveyor belt was broken and luggage was piled up and driven to another terminal. As a result half of our luggage did not arrive on our flight but arrived on subsequent flight. However, one bag was nowhere to be found and Delta staff could not clarify the issue. They did find it next day and delivered to the FLL airport, but we had to get a cab and go to the airport to pick-up as we could not take a chance of it not making it to us before the cruise departure. I am extremely disappointed"
Pros: "i didn't get on the plane"
Cons: "flight was delayed, so i would have missed connection in NYC. Delta agent said she could get me to boston the next day, in the afternoon. i drove my rental car to boston that night, instead of flying"
Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat even though I bought my ticket a while back. Seat assignments were given at the gate and we were never given a real reason for this. I ended up in a middle seat sandwiched between people, and the man at the end slept the entire time, making it difficult to get up and walk around which I need to do as I am prone to DVTs."
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."
Pros: "I have difficulty walking, the crew made sure that I got to my seat on the plane safely, and made sure that I had wheelchair support."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, advertised Gogo Wifi not working."
Pros: "Smiley flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed. Over booked by 11 people. Staff was cold and rude with no apologies. Turbulence the entire flight. They did the beverage service after two hours of flying. Worst Delta flight to date."
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"
Cons: "We had to gate our roll-aboard because we were told that there was no more space, but there was plenty of space in the overheads when we boarded. Crew was great! There was no in-flight entertainment available."
Pros: "Crew was great! Everyone I dealt with from Delta was very kind, professional and helpful."
Cons: "Hour and forty-five minute flight delay."
Pros: "we arrived earlier than the time listed"
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendant was phenomenal."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was smooth. Gate agent was excellent"
Pros: "Delta may not be the best however you can tell that they are always striving to be better each and everyday."
Cons: "There's always some personnel who slips through the cracks. I was told to please use the restroom located at the back of the plane versus the one closet to me at comfort class which is right behind first class. Didn't appreciate that much."
Cons: "On the run way for 1 hour in line to take off"
Cons: "Purchased these tickets over a month ago and I was never able to select my seats. I am a Delta frequent flier, and despite logging on and checking in, was told at the airport counter that I would be assigned a seat at the gate. Of course we were assigned to the last row of the antiquated MD 88, right next to one of the engines. As if the lack of reclining seats was bad enough, the engine noise and vibration was almost unbearable on the flight that was delayed one hour on the Tarmac. The crew was understanding and we did get to Orlando safely...a big plus."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding was very fast."
Cons: "I did not dislike anything about my flight it was amazing."
Pros: "Everything, but especially upgraded seating due to delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight."
Cons: "Lost time to destination (vacation) due to delayed flight then missing our layover flight. Upgraded to Comfort+ was appreciated but time lost was time lost."
Pros: "Arrived at destination 30 mins earlier than expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a little late and slow. But it smoothed itself out since we arrived at our destination 30 mins earlier than expected."
Cons: "Boarding at JFK was fine. In Halifax the flight did not pull up to an enclosed ramp but ended on the tarmac. We deplaned onto the tarmac and then walked in the open to the terminal. Our arrival should be into an enclosed ramp directly into the terminal. This is Canada and winter is coming."
Pros: "The Delta terminal at La Guardia was amazing I felt like I was back in Singapore , I had my choice of really good food ranging from Italian , German , Japanese and some American places all of which sounded good the prices were a bit expensive but that is just airports !"
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "I flew first on delta to Miami. Short trip, but was very disappointed in today's service. Instead of the normal solid good flight crew, I found a surly crew who congregated in the galley on this short flight and sat around eating in lieu of working the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in the back was so noisy ,I will try not to take Delta .First time flying Delta,"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, boarding went quickly, and the crew were nice. We'd taxied to the runway when takeoff was delayed by an incident ahead of us with another plane, and the flight attendants didn't give anyone a hard time about getting up to go to the restroom while we waited for the situation to be cleared, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "It was hot on the flight. The air vent on my seat wouldn't open. The seats seemed smaller than usual. (Even for modern day airline seats.) I flew to NY on American Airlines, and was relatively comfy, but was looking forward to my Delta flight back to Nashville, because I've been more pleased with Delta in the past. Maybe because the plane was smaller than I usually fly on or something (?), I spent the whole flight crammed into the corner, trying not to bump into the lady next to me (and she wasn't taking up too much space, btw - neither of us was overweight and neither of us used the shared armrest, we were both just wedged into our seats. Very uncomfortable)."
Pros: "The crew couldn't have been better--polite and efficient"
Cons: "The light was so weak that I could not read. Also, it was uncomfortably warm."
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault but we were delayed. That’s the only thing that could have been better"
Pros: "Bunch of crooks gave me the wrong time. Missed my flight"
Cons: "Getting correct to information"
Pros: "Crew perks and helpful staff"
Cons: "Short time between transfers and delay"
Cons: "Canceling flights with no notice and rescheduling made me lose a day"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Stop charging for carry on baggage for outside of Canada flights."
Cons: "I was caught off guard to find out at time of check-in that I had to pay a substantial amount for carry-on when I had specifically asked for a carry-on not just a personal item when booking my reservation. I ended up paying more than saving where I could gone with another company.VERY DISAPPOINTED"
Pros: "I very much enjoyed the ease of traveling on Porter. It was essentially hassle free. It was also a nice change to have a choice of snacks."
Cons: "We experienced a turbulent ride which of course was no fault of Porter. There was no entertainment."
Cons: "Was late going to NewYork and coming home. We were able to get an early flight which was great. Island Aurpirt is wonderful. Price fantastic!"
Pros: "Porter was great, bumped us up to an earlier flight because we had no checked baggage"
Pros: "Cheaper than other airlines though the flight attendants are really great"
Cons: "Well you get what you pay Small plane, not as confortable seats"
Pros: "Was offered a earlier flight that was available when we arrived for check in"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for baggage in advance but obviously there was a glitch in the payment process so HATED the cost for 2 bags. We traveled with 6 other airlines within Europe and none charged this exorbitant amount... NOT VERY PLEASED Check in person wasn’t very pleasant to deal with. I think she was having a bad day!!! All other staff and flight attendants were pleasant and good to deal with."
Pros: "After taking a chance on an airline I had never heard of, we were pleasantly surprised! Although there was a weather related delay, they accommodated us on an earlier flight."
Cons: "The plane was a bit loud"
Pros: "The courteous and helpful nature of both the ground staff and the crew. The Coffee was super."
Cons: "No Complaints whatsoever"
Pros: "Snack selection and free alcohol is good and unique; Porter is great for these short trips."
Cons: "I like the comfortable seats and the 2-2 configuration (no middle seats) but hate the no overhead space."
Cons: "Flight took off 30 min late"
Pros: "Everything . Great flight crew and even with a slight delay over all was a great flight !"
Cons: "Dirty toilet. Flight before us by Porter got delayed...all flights after also got delayed. ..poor logistics and no proper staffing at Newark airport."
Pros: "I didn't like taking a bus to Toronto instead of a planr"
Cons: "Being told my flight was cancelled as I approached the counter. No email, call, or text."
Pros: "It a nightmare experience. The flight was cancelled as we stood in line for boarding. I missed the second part of my flight to Quebec. It was the last flight out 12:30 pm!. There was no help. Come back go borrow was the.answer."
Cons: "The way the agents refused to help. Come back tomorrow is an incredible response when you ask for help."
Pros: "porter gives clients a civilized treatment because of its smallness and amenities"
Pros: "Great service! Attentive staff. Fabulous free lounges with drinks and snacks. Cappuccino in real cups in Toronto. Free wine and beer on flights. Real glasses on flights and in Toronto lounge. Gate agents were friendly and so helpful. Nrwark had a nice smaller lounge. Lots of legroom on flights."
Cons: "You have to be aware that these are props, so flights do get delayed or cancelled due to weather. Both of our flights were delayed. But they were very up front about it. Also put us on earlier flights automatically which was nice."
Pros: "- Staff/crew are exceedingly pleasant, although not necessarily 100% helpful - Free beer and great snack options onboard are a nice departure (see what I did there??) from the usual in-flight experience. - When they significantly messed up my entire first day of travel, without complaint they sent me a voucher for future travel."
Cons: "- My first flight was delayed and I wasn't notified until an hour beforehand (even though the flight was delayed due to an incoming flight they knew well ahead of an hour beforehand would not be there). I could have arrived at the airport later and paid less for my parking. - I was told by a gate agent I would still make my very tight connection (spoiler alert - I did not), so I did not ask to be rebooked on a later connection immediately. - Once it became clear I would likely miss my connection due to being delayed after boarding, I asked again about it, this time of a flight attendant. I was told there were 23 daily flights a day to my connecting city (there are not) and it would be fine. We sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes after landing waiting for a gate and the last hope of making that connection was gone. - Upon arrival in Toronto it turns out my connecting flight was cancelled and everyone had to be rebooked. The very pleasant customer service rep told me not to worry! They automatically rebook everyone and I've been scheduled to leave 10 flights later - the following morning. At 12:45 p.m. their best solution was a flight at 8:30 the next morning (later canceled). When I calmly explained that was not ideal, I was immediately given the "last seat out today" on a 9:30 flight (later delayed then canceled). I'm not sure who they were saving that for, but it is unacceptable to rebook people for the next day when they have free seats. I was resigned to spending 9 hours in the terminal (literally just a room with a few snacks) because I was also on standby for every flight until then, and fortunately after checking in again 5 hours later, I was handed a ticket for the flight leaving in 15 minutes. If I had followed Porter's original plan, I have no idea when I would have made it, as I already mentioned both of those other flights were later canceled and I've already gone over how Porter rebooks passengers. - I found out after I spent $20 Canadian on a sandwich and chips via the Porter website that they are supposed to give meal vouchers in a significant delay, but I was not offered one. - On the way back, I saw myself being set up for the same rigmarole. My first flight was delayed more than a half hour, leaving me with a very tight connection. Thankfully, I arrived at the airport earlier and was able to catch an earlier flight because as it turns out, the connecting flight I would have missed due to the delay ended up being canceled. I can only imagine what the rebooking process would have been, so I am glad Porter is accommodating about switching flights. I imagine they do so to save them the rebooking later, but still, it is not something all airlines will do. - Both flights out to Montreal were incredibly hot. I tend to run cold and I was sweating. The flights home on a warmer day were fine, so I'm not sure what was going on there."
Pros: "I missed my flight. In checking desk, my ticket transferred to the next flight for free :) Good selection of free drinks and snacks on board"
Cons: "- one and half hour delay - I left many necessary stuff behind to be under 9 kg carry on bagges which never get weighted. However, many people brought heavy backpacks full of stuff on board."
Pros: "Cancelled with no reason automatically booked to another flight day later with 6 hour layover. No one to call as they send this out at 11 pm. Original flight was early AM"
Cons: "Only 1 Agent at check in. Took a while to get through the line. Flight delayed."
Pros: "Friendly accommodating crew, always great service"
Cons: "Delays - there are always delays with porter"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew. Also I had plenty of leg room & a real surprise was free drinks even on a short flight."
Cons: "Each of my flights was late."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight and they did not help me find a place to stay as it was all their fault. Worst customer service!"
Cons: "Delayed for 60 min. Thought I was miss my connecting flight but it was also delayed...by 90 min!!!!"
Cons: "We've been sitting on the ground in Toronto for an hour. When we landed they said no gates were available, which is moronic."
Cons: "All flights were backed up for more than 1and half hours. Thank God that I was able to get out on a earlier flight that got me to my destination my regular scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "Friendly, nice"
Cons: "Had to wait for luggage"
Cons: "Very bumpyyyyyyyyyyy"
Pros: "Everything was on time ,the flight was comfortable,snacks were also good . The attendants were very friendly and couscous. I'll fly with Porter air again . Edward"
Cons: "No entertainment on board ."
Pros: "Our 1 hour flight to Toronto City was delayed by 2 hours due to weather issues in Newark, but we got to enjoy the Porter lounge (free drinks and crackers)."
Pros: "They served beverages in REAL glasses, in their waiting room they serve FREE coffee"
Pros: "One of the hostesses from Toronto to Halifax was one of the sweetest and caring people. She was the younger of the two women (for lack of her name) and I wish I had taken her name to be able to let Porter know how nice she was! She really made the whole trip so pleasant."
Cons: "The lack of in flight entertainment/"
Pros: "Friendly and extremely helpful staff. There was no fuss and boarding was calm and smooth. Great flight and Billy Bishop is a much easier transition to Toronto downtown."
Cons: "Seats did not recline at all"
Pros: "My trip was excellent.Coulb not ask more. Thank you."
Cons: "After my flight with porter airline my souvenirs that were glass were smashed.. I have been on many flights around the states with those exact souvenirs and nothing. I don't think they treat your bags with care at all"
Pros: "I was allowed to go on an earlier flight which enabled me to go out to dinner with my husband for his birthday."
Cons: "I didn't like the pressurization of the cabin. I find that I have a hard time with my ears pressurizing on Porter flights. I flew earlier in the day with no problem with my ears then I take the Porterr flight and my ears won't clear at all. I feel this type of aircraft doesn't pressurize well."
Cons: "We were unable to rebook or use flights as s credit so when plans changed even though it was months away we were just out the money"
Pros: "Availability and check in service"
Cons: "Flight to US was late, returning to Canada flight crew seemed like not courteous and too noisy in side of the flight."
Pros: "Overall great experience after a hectic weekend in New York City! Very relaxing, check-in to Uber"
Pros: "Pretty much everything was good on the flight and afterwards, even with a delay it was a pleasant experience...."
Cons: "The only problem we're the gate agents in Newark, they disappeared for 20 minutes and no one was at the gate even after the original boarding time had come and gone. When she finally came in there was neither an apology or even an acknowledgement that I was there. 5 min after after she Arrived I had to get her to stop what she was doin to ask if si would make my other flight , all she said was " not sure" no sign of even wanting to help. She was awful"
Cons: "The crew were mostly great except one female flight attendant who was unnecessarily rude on two occasions on the short flight."
Pros: "Small airport"
Pros: "I especially love Porter's lounges - free coffee, cappuccino, espresso, cookies, soda, water, free Wi-Fi,.. I checked in unintentionally early, and was asked if I wanted to be put on an earlier flight, at no charge - any other airline that's offered me that in the last few years has always imposed a surcharge. Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing not to like!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."
Pros: "The pilot got us to Toronto."
Cons: "Everything. Contrary to most of my experiences with WestJet over the past nineteen years, this was the worst, overall, trip I have ever had with them, from delays, to missing my connecting flight, to gross incompetence with the staff, to a failure to even empathize with our situation (with a baby!)."
Cons: "due to weather a pile of flights were cancelled, we had to call West Jet and get re-routed"
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed due to weather, which is fine. However, more information would have been really nice."
Pros: "Crew were nice, everything was on time."
Cons: "Need to use your own device to watch entertainment. No screens."
Cons: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."
Cons: "The entire plane smelt like the washroom, and a mix of engine fuel. I wasn't extremely thrilled about that."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed 17 minutes earlier. Bags arrived before I was in front of baggage area."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Pros: "Easy to change flight same day to one flight earlier."
Cons: "Forced me to check in my (undersized) duffel bag carry on. Then forgot To load the bag onto the plane. WestJet cited a questionable and unlikely reason, that the bag was not loaded due to baggage to passenger weight ratio for safety reasons, even though flight was far from full with multiple empty rows. Plus there was a grand total of only approximately 12 pieces of baggage at the carousel. Also the plane’s auxiliary power generator was broken, which meant no a/c while on the tarmac before and after takeoff. Cabin was warm though not intolerable, however led to delays at both origin and destination airport due to having to wait for an external power supply truck. No in flight service due to supposed turbulence. Which would have been fine, except there really wasn’t much turbulence. Didn’t affect me, but my neighbor’s entertainment system was broken. However, these multiple issues and the broken power generator makes me wonder about what other maintenance issues have been overlooked or not addressed. Most of all I was offended by the clear lack of honesty about my baggage. If there really was a weight limit safety issue despite the plane being far from maximum capacity, then there are much bigger issues with the plane that makes me never want to fly WestJet again. But don’t insult your passengers by lying to cover up your carelessness. My baggage arrived on the following (my original) flight, but that which was delayed by nearly two hours. I’ve flown on United, Delta, Southwest, JetBlue, WowAir, AA, Alaskan, Virgin, American Airlines, United Airways, China Air, EVA, and Air Canada. So far, WestJet has been by far my worst experience."
Cons: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Cons: "I miss the wedding party I was the bridesmaid"
Pros: "The crew are always great."
Cons: "The past few times my flight has been delayed"
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "The cabin crew were outstanding on WS709 today. This is my fourth trip with Westjet, and today stood above. Diane was beyond efficient and pleasant while maintaining a smile and grace, while a number of unattended children were onboard. My seat was changed, and that's fine - mostly because of the manner in which the crew at Pearson handled it. Then, I couldn't resist giving up my re-assigned (centre) seat so that two sisters could sit together. The two folk in my row were lovely, they talked more than I did, but when I joined in, it was a genuinely pleasant conversation. Three strangers, meeting per chance. The woman next to me had given her seat up for a family to sit together, so it really was a chance encounter! Diane needs to be promoted!"
Cons: "While things happen, I wonder why when I was readied a seat, it was missed that two children, sisters, were sitting in separate rows? Should they have automatically been assigned two seats together - they were unaccompanied. As happens, an 'aunt-like' woman was seated next to them, and again, Diane was an another in-charge auntie!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Cons: "- The unprofessional way the staff "sorted us out". Especially the lady at check-in. Our flight was from NY to Toronto and then connecting after a nine-hour layover from Toronto to London. On all flights, we got the seats in the middle of the aircraft allocated, which is challenging when you are on crutches. - The second flight to London was in a terribly old machine where the overhead compartments were not well equipped to accommodate my crutches. The only way they fitted was at the very back underneath all the luggage. So when I asked the flight staff to help me get my crutch to go to the toilet, as I could not get it myself, he asked: "do you really have to use it?". I considered that very rude! - The selling of the entertainment systems took forever, which meant that the food sale was very late. Almost 4 hours into the flight on an overnight flight is really late! Especially when people would prefer to sleep. Due to my medication, I had to wait for food, but it took forever. All in all, not the best experience"

Pros: "The fly is in time"
Cons: "A bit of disorganization in the row where they reviewed documentation and the suitcases of three machines to print passages only served 1"
Pros: "Hilarious crew member. Great Canadian jokes"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful but no refreshments because of turbulence. Flight was low so very interesting to be below clouds and just above. Good notice of flight delay in time to stay home for two hours.... thanks!!"

Pros: "Everything was great!!"
Pros: "No stops,"
Pros: "Not long to go through checkin."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "I forgot sparge photo on the plane and only realized this when i was picking up my checked bag. A crew member was able to get it off the plane and bring it to arrivals for me. I was very thankful."
Cons: "Seating was tight; I was a little too close for comfort to the passenger on my left."
Cons: "The bag of treat I got with my coffee don't remember what it was but it had no taste. I tasted it and discarded the rest."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Flight attendant was a little pushy"
Pros: "Cleaniness and timing the most."

Pros: "Crew wonderful, cheery and helpful"
Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."
Cons: "I felt a little like a sardine. I didn't eat or watch the entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and then cancelled due to bad weather. Crew don't handle well the discomfort of the passengers that has to wait about 8 hours for the next flight."
Cons: "Delta should give some kind of support in this kind of situation."
Pros: "I liked the pilot who flew the 6.35 WS 1512 on Jan 3 rd to Toronto, which was delayed, and finally left at 7:19. It is the first time I flew on an airplane and barely felt any pain in my ear. The take off and the landing were professionally done. Kudos to that female pilot! The crew were quite hospitable and friendly as well. Thank you so much."
Pros: "Seats are roomy, service was great"
Cons: "It was delayed by an hour"

Cons: "No toilet paper or Kleenex on the 2nd flight with American"
Pros: "Flights are on time, and the information on the app was accurate and timely"
Cons: "Not much... it was the easiest flight I’ve taken in some time!"
Cons: "Seating in Economy plus is tight. No electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Cons: "To hot in the back of the plane"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Pros: "Legroom, flight crew"
Cons: "Management of flight delays, especially the lack of announcements - confusion was rife"
Pros: "Free tv to distract me from my state of misery"
Cons: "Too warm on flight. Was so nauseated the whole time."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment so the rating there doesn't mean anything. Flight was delayed 1 hour due to a mechanical issue. Part of the delay included AA trying to get the flight crew to show up at the gate. The flight was oversold so there was a long list of standbys which added to the crowd waiting at the gate."
Cons: "Leaving MKE was organized and orderly. No problems noted. Once in PHL, flight was delayed due to no crew. After an hour or so, boarded the plane. Was on the plane for 45 minutes with no explaination from the crew. It was an electrical problem. Had to inboard and wait 45 more minutes. Allow weld to rehoard again. Waited another 20 ministrations before leaving. I am all for safety, but communications need to improve."
Pros: "British Airways seats"

Cons: "If the exit row seats are completely vacant, ask the flight attendant EARLY in the boarding process if you can move into them. I asked a good 10 min. prior to departure from the gate and was told I couldn't do it then. The FA let me move after takeoff and the obligatory "You're in exit row seating ..." briefing."
Cons: "air conditioning did not work well. heat was coming into the plane from the windows."
Pros: "Crew was very polite."

Pros: "The plane was very nice and very comfy. Not a whole lot of leg room where I sat (economy) but it was a cheap ticket so I can't complain."
Cons: "Overbooked flight made storing carryons annoying and hard."
Pros: "Really?! After all these years, you can't manage the boarding process or even attempt to create and/or keep ques? This part I have to say is not rocket science. Also, if you are going to offer carry-on baggage, then make sure you can honor it!No one took charge Or do we get to charge you $60 for the luxury of being able to check our bags to their final destination?"

Cons: "Had to be rebooked due to safety issue on my departing flight and lost my connection in Washington DC. Hours of sitting."
Cons: "I was going to miss my flight and so I called the AA and they would not credit, reschedule or do anything for me. I had to just waste the money as the change fee would be just as much as buying a new ticket. Teaches me a lesson for every straying away from Southwest."

Pros: "generally on time"
Cons: "Had to reschedule to a later flight."

Pros: "Fast flight with no delays"
Cons: "Very old entertainment unit, slow touch screen, confusing interface. Very tight seats that were not very padded. Overall uncomfortable"
Pros: "As a professional musician, flying with my viola is one of the most nerve wracking experiences, as if it is forced to be checked due to insufficient room for overhead baggage, it could be completely destroyed. As stated in Air Canada's online policy, passengers traveling with musical instruments that fit as carry on baggage are allowed to change to earlier boarding zones. After approaching a staff member with my viola, I wasn't simply assigned an earlier zone, but rather I was allowed to board first. On this principle alone I will be flying Air Canada again. Thank you!!!"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "The airline failed to mention transit visa rules. Really poor customer service. Irrespective of what time of the day you call, the average wait time is 30 min. Who can wait for 30 min to receive his/her call. That's stupid for a premium air line. Even when someone answered they failed to provide a solution and were unsympathetic to my cause"
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
Cons: "2 and a half hour delay"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed about an hour and a half because of earlier delays in the day and the ground crew and pilot kept us fully informed of the situations as they evolved.

Cons: "- Flight was delayed for over 20 minutes"

Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help.

Cons: "They charged us 25 dollars for a carry on bag which was unfair. They didn't charge anyone else. When I came back I was not charged. I would like a refund. The people were very rude! I take that bag on trips weekly. I should have not been charged."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice"
Cons: "When I went to Check in there was alot of problems with the process on line By the time I was able to enter my information the session had timed out. It was so frustrating because I had to wait 51 minutes for an Air Canada representative to confirm I had checked in eventhough I didn't have my boarding pass on my I5 phone. I really like your planes and service providers,but your website is awful."
Cons: "The Toronto airport was ill-equipped for an international transfer. I barely made it despite a 90 minute layover. Air Canada was OK, not great."
Cons: "Very long line to get to security"
Pros: "Free snack"
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"

Pros: "TVs in each head rest with movies."
Cons: "No communication or care. Sat on plane in Toronto for 4hrs - no offer of beverage or snack. To announce flight cancelled. 90% of flights going same location was cancelled from gate. No reason to assume our flight would have special us president clearance to fly. And doesn't take 4hrs to figure that out. Then was not giving any assistance or comms on new flight. When called told best chance is 2 days for flight and was not providing any hotel voucher. We ended up driving from Toronto to NYC. We were irate!!!!!"
Cons: "I had 21Inch suitcase. but who helped me check in staff , he said my suitcase looks littlebit big charge me seccond luggage fee $35.... my suitcase 21Inch..it is cabin size...even I didnt use extendingzipper, when I see other people suitcase same size with my suit case or more ticker what I got more mad is my new suitcase got scratched, cracked.

Cons: "I was stuck on a plane for 7 hours for a one hour flight"
Pros: ""Wen," the check in agent at LGA on 12/31/15 was absolutely wonderful. She is the kind of face every corporation needs to the public. She was caring, thoughtful, personable and cheerful. In addition, she got me sorted and checked in incredibly fast. Crew on board were great too, the tall blonde woman (sorry don't know name) was particularly gracious (ran out of champagne for purchase so she created her own fun new years drink and apologized profusely)."
Cons: "Movies only available if you rent an ipad or have your own laptop. Flight was on time boarding but half hour late departing."
