Pros: "Enjoyed the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "The media on this flight was a little outdated"
Pros: "Yes the crew was great."
Cons: "It was a short 2.5 hr flight. Jet blue provided packaged snacks and a soft drink at no additional charge. Other airlines charge for everything. A carry on and a handbag were also allowed which others don't. The seats are leather and have more room. Seems Jet Blue is the last one of those traditional airlines giving more for your money. Thank you Jet Blue ! I am sold."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Los asientos amplios"
Cons: "The snack bar, Couoh he better"
Cons: "Flight was 3 1/2 hours delayed. In-flight entertainment system didn’t function. They didn’t perform a beverage/snack service. Very poor overall. Disappointing."
Cons: "Two hour delay between boarding and then sitting on the runway."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed a grand total of 5 hours"
Cons: "They could’ve had a backup plane more readily available"
Pros: "Crew and seat were good."
Cons: "TV was broken."
Pros: "Smooth flight, early arrival, Nice crew, roomy seats, fun snacks, good movie choices."
Cons: "The touch screen on my seat didn’t work, but the side control did, so I could still watch movies."
Pros: "The seat was good, snacks is good."
Cons: "I wish the crew would did a little more to ask the people behind me stop playing the loud music and talking loud. Also rap music with bad language with children next to it is not a good idea. I actually like rap but not listening loud with the speaker on with kids in the plane is not considerate."
Pros: "Crew handled a health situation very well. Never lost their composure."
Cons: "Not having our luggage lost"
Cons: "Wasn't their fault but it was a pretty turbulent flight. It's winter and we flew NY to Costa Rica, this is expecteddue to the wind, in the winter, in warmer climates. you could tell the pilot was doing his best to avoid turbulence though & the staff were ultra professional."
Pros: "Aircraft nice, clean and modern"
Cons: "Entertainment had technical issues."
Pros: "Leg room and personal item room under the aisle seat is good. Crew was good. Flight was on time. There was room for carry-on bag this time."
Cons: "Wrong terminal info in JFK air train. Wrong gate info on JFK monitors. Wrong flight info on Gate monitor (bermuda instead of burbank). Seat TV stopped working. Narrow seats. Food sold before drinks, drinks should be first. Rear deplaning never worked due to some problem. Laptop space cramped."
Pros: "Plenty of room and empty seat next to me"
Cons: "Long walk from parking to terminal at JFK"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for like an hour"
Cons: "So first thing before takeoff one flight attendant told someone to turn there music down because it could be heard outside of the headphones, but then proceeded to talk extremely loud throughout the entire flight to the other attendants. It was a 6am flight and mostly everyone was trying to sleep, but she was so loud that I gave up after trying to. If you tell someone else to be quiet because of sleeping passengers, I recommend you follow your own advice."
Pros: "Legroom is better than most other airlines and crew was very nice"
Cons: "We were delayed on the runway after boarding for an hour and arrived in Burbank an hour late. My screen was broken and I was unable to access any movies or tv shows. Finally, they ran out of meals early on in the flight."
Pros: "Staffs was very attentive and sweet. They made sure I was ok, provided snacks and drinks. Pilot said hello to me and my sister and we had a short chat, I felt very happy with the staffs friendliness and attentiveness."
Cons: "Everything was great! There was a small delay, and that’s all."
Cons: "Once again, on this flight, I, my wife, and our 2-year-old were split up. This time, we were all placed in different rows. Way to go JetBlue! Thankfully, on this flight we had people who were decent enough to trade seats with us (probably because it was only two seats to an aisle, and therefore, no middle seats) so we could be together. Shouldn't have to do this though. PUT FAMILIES TOGETHER ON PLANES, ESPECIALLY IF THEY HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN."
Pros: "Ample leg space, super clean, very amiable staff, free media, all round excellent. Positive feel."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Flew to JFK from Jax and back and both flights left on time. Return flight landed 30 minutes early. Seats were comfortable enough. Movies were good. Flight crews attentive"
Cons: "Nothing was bad"
Cons: "Flight delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Free WiFi was great, but wish I could sign in with my Amazon account instead of setting up TrueBlue."
Cons: "The food cart rushed by without asking if we wanted anything. Also not clear until after food purchase that free snacks would be available throughout the flight."
Pros: "New plane with self service snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight one hour."
Pros: "Very impressed by JetBlues seats- feels bigger than seats for international flights!!"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment was relatively new and varied but remember to bring ur own headphones!! Esp those newer iPhone owners!!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Inadequate food service. Bad entertainment options. No power supply."
Cons: "Our prior flight arrived 30 minutes late and we had to run to the opposite side of the airport. We were there before the departure time but the staff gave us a hard time saying they were going to lock the doors on us. It wasn't until the flight crew ran up behind us that they finally didn't have an attitude and said we were fine. Online entertainment didn't work, no shows, the map doesn't have a time or useful info. My row was skipped by the crew for snacks. The guy came from behind first, which I didn't see and then one the way back, he didn't even look at my row or the row in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The boarding policy changes are confusing. No longer boarding from the rear of the plane and no explanation of how to board sooner without buying an extra space seat. Also the seats are less comfortable."
Pros: "Left on time. Quick, smooth flight. Arrived early. Couldn't have been better!"
Pros: "The customer service was amazing!"
Cons: "The flight was about an hour delayed."
Pros: "Great service, delightful crew, flight went in a smooth and timely manner. Very satisfied."
Cons: "Although the seat had enough of leg space, the folding table in a back of the chair in front of me was malfunctioning, crooked and unstable to a certain degree; I could not push the back seat down. But over all my experience was good"
Pros: "the extra room"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to weather (understandable) but jet blues customer service desk was very unfriendly and not helpful"
Pros: "extra leg room that I purchased."
Cons: "gate personnel were rude. called passengers by group, then told them they were blocking the way for other passengers! flight attendants had no personality and didn't interact with passengers I will not fly with this company in the future."
Pros: "They got us on quickly, and the flight arrived quicker than expected."
Cons: "The line for security was poorly managed, tried talking to multiple employees and they all ignored me, and on the plane there was no wifi, and I tried to flag down a flight attendant for water but they never came to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Flight attendant relocated me to exit aisle (see below)."
Cons: "My seat's headphone jack didn't work. Annoying for a long flight --they should be frequently checked and maintained."
Cons: "First off the TSA line was changed right in the middle of waiting in it. They combined two lines into one giant line, putting the other line in front of my line. I know part of this is TSA, but JetBlue has some pull/say in how their terminal works. This doubled my TSA wait time resulting in a 1hr 15 min wait for security. Second, the flight was 20 minutes delayed. Not the best JetBlue day."
Pros: "There was a delay on my flight from Dubai to New York... as a result I missed my flight to Rochester. Now I am being told to rebook the flight and pay full price. I am getting the short end of the stick here. This is totally rip off"
Cons: "Flight departed 2 hrs late. No jet blue personnel were at the gate for hours, and offered no assistance with connections or alternate arrangements. Never had such a poor experience."
Cons: "Tv, internet did not work majority of the flight, air was not that high."
Pros: "The check in process with Jet Blue is always seamless and quick. Great communication. I enjoyed the free wi-fi and under-the-seat outlets. Also love how refreshments are available to grab at anytime."
Cons: "The sound on the movies, etc. is terrible! And half the time the screens don't work."
Pros: "Space. Courteous service."
Cons: "Lack of charging/recharging for cell phones etc. unable to take advantage of in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Everything Entertainment Early landing"
Pros: "The flight was one of the best domestic flights I have ever taken. Amazingly helpful and courteous cabin crew, excellent customer service, great add-ons like free wifi and snacks. I think I will only be taking jet blue now, especially if the price remains somewhat similar to other carriers. It is simply the best."
Pros: "The snacks were fresh"
Cons: "Several delays, long wait time AFTER we were COMPLETELY boarded, non-communication between staff & passengers regarding WHY we sat on plane for at LEAST an HOUR after boarding, and flight personnel not double checking to make sure that all passengers had something to drink after the snacks were given. JetBlue needs to get it together!!! I will DEFINITELY avoid them in the future!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were good, helpful , awesome ,"
Cons: "The staff at the kiosks. One lady was rude and impatient and after encountering a problem chose to send me to the counter , I went to another who was patient and we succeeded. The baggage handjers were terrible as well. They're getting paid to lift bags, I had to lift my bag and weigh it on the carousel myself"
Pros: "The crew is always friendly at Porter. The free wine is awesome."
Cons: "There’s no entertainment."
Pros: "Efficient check in. Liked the shuttle bus service from subway to airport."
Cons: "As expected this is a commuter flight so very stripped down in terms of amenities. Tight plane seating and those overhead bins just barely accommodate the carry on."
Pros: "Wine and food on flight, nice crew"
Cons: "The people at the ytz airport missed our boarding call and then had to tell us in person to board and our flight was late."
Pros: "The crew was good and boarding was super efficient"
Cons: "No entertain on the plane. Since when YTZ offered no more complimentary drinks and some snack?"
Cons: "Fees, space , training their employees"
Pros: "Very convenient, non stops and airport is close to downtown"
Cons: "Captain said the 1 hour delay was due to bad weather in Washington DC but there was no bad weather in DC. He should have said the truth. I was in flight 729 from Toronto to Washington Dulles airport on 7/7."
Cons: "I was required to pay for my carryon, which I was never informed during my booking."
Pros: "I felt like I was taken advantage of by porter airlines"
Cons: "They didn’t tell me I had to pay 110$ to bring on carry on luggage! Unacceptable. I will never fly porter again."
Pros: "Porter airlines is efficient and the customer service is the best I have experienced."
Cons: "I miss the free amenities that they used to offer at the Billy Bishop airport, but the newly renovated airport is nice!"
Cons: "Our checked in bags did not come out on the carousel, instead they had been sitting on the ground beside another carousel - with no notification. There was a handful of us waiting 30+ mins for our bags and no one around to assist."
Pros: "The airport security was very fast"
Cons: "Have sprite on board"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Was not offered a flight back to Ottawa, had to find a ride from Toronto to Ottawa once we landed .6 hours driving. See above."
Pros: "Solid and professional connecting flight."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and even roomy, compared to many other airlines."
Cons: "Two minor drawbacks: (1) In the Porter lounge, where I was stuck between connecting flights, the cost of food was too high. (2) The weather buffets these small planes more than would be the case with jetliners."
Pros: "I needed to use wheelchair service and was greeted by name as I boarded the plane. The flight attendant Barry then came and told me if there was anything he could do for me during the flight just to let him know. After the flight was over Barry asked me to wait till everyone deplaned so He could make sure my wheelchair was there and then carried my bag to them. Porter airlines is top notch. I will use them again next time I go to visit my daughter."
Pros: "1) Snacks and beverage at Toronto airport 2) Very clean and comfortable inside the aircraft"
Cons: "1) I wasn’t allowed to check in online because I’m not an American or Canadian citizen. Never heard of that before on any other airline. 2) Flight delays too often and the notification is sent just an hour before (by then we’ve already checked in!)"
Pros: "City Center airport and staff at Porter was great"
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed without explanation or rescheduling. Each "new" time had already passed when it was set, e.g., "The new departure time is noon" when it was already 12:15."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and the terminal in Toronto was nice. The food and drink service was more than I expected, and the checkin agents and terminal staff before security were helpful."
Cons: "My flight arriving into Toronto was cancelled and then my rebooked flight was delayed. While checkin staff were polite, gate staff were not overly helpful and no food vouchers were offered for rebooked passengers. On my return from YTZ to EWR, I received 6 delays to my flight but staff in the airport provided no information regarding the cause of the delay and did not provide updates on the flight in a timely manner. By the time my flight was delayed a 5th time, I was stuck in the terminal. Free drinks and snacks were available, but I had to pay for a sandwich during my 3 hour wait. I have received only a C$100 travel voucher. Needless to say I won't be using it."
Cons: "Worst delays! 5 consecutive delays which amounted to over 3 hours!"
Pros: "Nice snacks and espresso in lounge in Toronto"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours due to heat and not good communication to passengers about flight status - plane was tiny. Landing was bumpy. also lounge in Toronto was over crowded"
Cons: "After paying for bag check & being at the airport 3 hours early, the aIn-line was over weight so they removed my bag to the next flight, rather than the gate checked bags! They promised me the bags would be delivered right away, then after I checked, lied to me that they had been picked up by the delivery service."
Pros: "Simple, easy, fast."
Cons: "Small waiting area."
Cons: "the snack (chips) I recieved was expired and had a smell to it!"
Pros: "The check in process was very easy. The boarding process was very easy. The flight attendants were very pleasant."

Cons: "3 houra delays and no storm!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were fairly smooth, the crew were friendly and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Told that due to turbulence, no cart service would be available. There didn't seem to be a whole lot of turbulence that would prevent cart service. We did get a bag of terra chips and a small water."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Carry on luggage is handled by crew staff - makes boarding much easier as passengers aren't struggling to find space for the carry on bags. The bags are ready for pickup upon exiting the aircraft. Would highly recommend Porter and would use again."
Cons: "Flight was approx. 10 minutes late, but the time was made up during the flight."
Pros: "the lounge was great in toronto. loved the free lattes."
Cons: "plane was delayed."
Pros: "It was fine. Flight was delayed 30 minutes without warning, but not a big deal."
Pros: "It was an easy flight but the checking in was slow."
Cons: "Kiosks would not scan US passports.This info was not given to US CITIZENS upon arrival at check in counter.A few of us wasted lots of time trying to make it work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about 4 hours then canceled on a Sunday night and I wasn't rebooked until Wednesday morning. Porter staff said I would only be refunded the "pro-rated" fare for the leg that was canceled. This makes no sense as I had to buy my own ticket home from another airline and I didn't get to pay a "pro-rated" fare because I was halfway home. They also put us up in an extremely sketchy hotel that was unsafe, unclean and had an active prostitution ring going on."
Pros: "Small lines, great lounge with light breakfast and refreshments for all passengers, very pleasant atmosphere. Quick boarding and almost instantaneous takeoff... nice on board service, with a variety of free snacks and drinks (including alcohol...)"
Pros: "complimentary wine and beer"
Cons: "Constant delays!!! Supposed to arrive in Sudbury at 5:25 - arrived at 10:00 PM!"
Pros: "-quick connection and lounge -having real glass to drink out of on the flight is a real treat"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I arrived an hour late and missed my pick up ride.I had to spend an extra $50 to get home."
Pros: "They didn't know when the flight will take off and when I went to ask she ask me to set down until she find out after an hour delay I had to pay double for the service care for this hour because I wasn't able to notify them of the delay"
Pros: "The seat has enough leg room. The service was very nice on the plane with nice selections of snacks and soft drinks. It also offers wines and beers free of charge. The waiting area which offers complementary snacks and beverages is more comfortable than the one in the US with very comfortable chairs and outlets with USB to charge your phones, computers...It would be great if the US airlines copy their ideas."
Pros: "Complimentary refreshments. Not too much...just enough. Thank you, Porter!"
Cons: "My first time using Porter...certainly not my last."
Cons: "I've flown Porter every week for the past 3 months and this was the first bad experience I've had. The flight attendant was the rudest person and treated me with the most disrespect. He should take off two weeks and then quit, has given this great airline a bad reputation."
Pros: "Love that Billy Bishop airport and its free cappuccino!"
Pros: "No issues. Made it easy for me."
Cons: "Nothing. -all good"
Pros: "Lounge in Toronto had comfortable seating and complimentary coffee was served in actual cups and saucers, very nice!"
Pros: "Porter is a generous and comfortable airline, with kind and helpful staff."
Cons: "It might have been the weather, but both flights were extremely turbulent during landing."
Pros: "Free beer and snack"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours. Waited on tarmac in Ottawa because of frozen equipment. In total I was delayed about 2 hours from scheduled arrival in Ottawa."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Seems to happen often with Porter...for some reason."
Cons: "40 minute flight delay with clear weather conditions"
Pros: "due to weather then mechanical difficulty, we were quite delayed in take off, but the boarding area was comfortable and the airline did everything they could make our connection possible and we though delayed landed in Sault Ste. Marie that day. Not ideal, but admirable."
Pros: "It is a no frills airline. Cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "Average comfort compatible with all airlines"
Cons: "WestJet is a good airline"
Pros: "Well organized. Helpful & courtesy."
Pros: "Quick smooth flight. We even landed early. No delays no problems. I even had seated in an empty row"
Pros: "Crew accommodated seat change. All courteous and friendly staff"
Pros: "I like that my original flight was rescheduled but I needed to arrive in Vancouver for my connection so I'm happy they moved me to an earlier flight. Very accommodating!-"
Cons: "Entrainment on flight"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Communication from you all. I missed my flight because of the terrible instructions and communication"
Pros: "Crew was excellent !! They ran a tight ship!"
Cons: "Seats need to be replaced ... no padding!"
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat space was a bit tight"
Cons: "Little more space and leg room"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable because of the head rest that is attached to the seat. However the staff and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "The crew was polite, even with the numerous delays. Other than that, the multiple delays (3; 8:30 -> 11:30, 11:30 -> 13:05, 13:05 -> 15:30) rubbed me the wrong way and lessened my experience with West Jet. Kayak was very responsive and reliable on their end."
Cons: "West Jet; the delays which took around 6 hours from my weekend trip."
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good snack options"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Pros: "For some reason, we found ourselves in the Premium section for our return flight from Palm Springs. So we got fed!! Which was nice. And we had a little more legroom, “spare seat” between us, etc."
Cons: "It was a short flight, only 2 1/2 hours, so you can’t really expect much. It’s the long flights where service really makes a difference."
Pros: "Swat was okay, crew was great"
Cons: "Wifi no work, loading was a bit of a joke"
Pros: "Super friendly, fun crew!"
Cons: "Seats are so small"
Cons: "Always a ‘full flight’ and they run out of spacein the overhead storage"
Pros: "Arrived earlier than expected despite a later departure."
Pros: "The flight left on time and the crew were pleasant and efficient. Best of all, we had ample legroom in our economy seats. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "While we were waiting to board, we heard an announcement by American Airlines, allowing currently serving military members and their families to board with the VIPs. I think that is wonderful idea!"
Pros: "Check in was quick and easy. Boarding and flight was right on time!"
Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "We didn’t appreciate the walk from Gate 4 to Gate 41 TWICE when the departure gate was changed. We are in our 80’s and it was quite a trek!"
Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."
Pros: "The staff were super helpful and friendly, and the accommodations were clean and decently comfortable!"
Cons: "The food was very pricy and not that great. Also the boarding took a long time and seemed a little unorganized."
Cons: "Gate arrival and boarding delayed."
Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"
Cons: "They tried for force us to pay for a different ticket because we had gotten a cheap initial ticket!"
Pros: "The crew was kind when they gave me an extra bag of pretzels to calm my rolling stomach on a flight that while over 4 hours long does qualify for even a decent sized bag of pretzels."
Cons: "I think the seats on westjet are ridiculous, are they smaller than other planes. I was practically in the lap of the person next to me. I'm 5'7 and I couldn't even rest my head on my knees to stop the extreme motion sickness. I couldn't even finish my flight today because I couldn't stand the nausea and I couldn't rest in a seat 2 sizes too small for a regular sized person. I had to lay down and when it didn't subside I had to find accommodation. I will never fly with westjet again. But thanks you know for the pretzels."
Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardess were fantastic."
Cons: "Its a little cramped in the seats."
Pros: "It's a way to get from point A to point B."
Cons: "It's like taking the bus, it is what it is. Not great but it gets you there."
Pros: "I like everything"
Pros: "Was nice clean short flight. Pleasant stewardesses. Food was lacking but normal now for short flight"
Cons: "Entertainment only with app loaded devices"
Pros: "staff was unfriendly. no options for entertainment that don't cost. no blankets to keep warm. i understand airlines need to make money, but they're making it much less enjoyable. on the upside, my flight down had incredible staff who treated me and my mother very well. sometimes, people make all the difference ;)"
Pros: "Boarding was Ok Full plane, which makes a difference"
Cons: "Was there an entertainment progress? One trip for rood and drinks. Delay in boarding, which the crew made up."
Cons: "It took several hours for the decision to be made to cancel our original flight from PV to Van, and when the final decision was made, the complete lack of sympathy or communication came as a shock. No one informed us why we were moving to another terminal or that our flight had actually been cancelled and we would be staying another night in Mexico for another two hours. Getting our hotel voucher and transportation to the venue took another several hours. (Sorry Westin, but you also receive poor marks on your food services. Your front desk people were great though!) The following morning we were not informed that there would be no food service on the flight, so my kids were starving by the time we touched down in Vancouver. The ordeal was exhausting and when we finally arrived in Vancouver we almost missed our connecting flight because of a huge error in off-loading our luggage. It shouldn’t take over an hour to receive your luggage. Again, the communications break down led to hightened anxiety and stress. The whole horrible journey home with WestJet made the loveliness of my actual holiday pale into the background. I was very disappointed in WestJet as I’ve had fabulous experiences in the past. If possible, I will avoid flying with them again any time soon."
Pros: "Short flight at a great price!"
Cons: "If you are not a US citizen, you must apply for an Eta. Canada charges $7 for citizens to enter the country. Did not know we needed this and had to apply online right before boarding our flight."
Pros: "That we could sleep during the flight. The attendants left us alone when we were sleeping."
Pros: "Staff are always fun and efficient, but the drinks came very late. In Asia, even if the flight is only 1 hour, they have the time to serve a lunch and clean up....."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Cons: "Took 45min to bag check (3 agents and only 3 families ahead of me) and when I did bag drop, I’d already checked in online, the agent tagged my luggage to Calgary not vancouver and put it under someone else’s name. It’s been over 34 hours and still no word from westjet. Calgary is an 1 1/2 hr flight to Vancouver. Not impressed."
Pros: "West jet employees worked hard to fix the mess they caused. Eventually getting me a ticket for another airline."
Cons: "Changed my flights with less than 3h notice. I’d payed extra to reduce wait times as I was flying with a child just over 2. Originally had me coming in to Vancouver at 9 am and leaving at 5:40pm. Not cool with a young child. Allmost missed the 1st flight getting it fixed, they also didn’t book my child in adjacent seats, despite pre-booking the seats on the flight days before."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "I just cannot understand why WestJet cannot seat six people travelling together together. I mean really folks, it can’t be that hard... especially since five of those passengers have the same surname! Finally, is a cup of coffee and cookie and a glass of water really sufficient for a 5hr 9min flight, which adds to well over six hours with boarding and alighting time included."
Pros: "It was a comfortable experience, the flight crew were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The lack of space beneath the seat in front of me can be frustrating, especially when one is required to push their small bag underneath it."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This older plane had tiny seats in the seat backs. My phone screen was bigger. Thought we might get a meal on a flight of this length and at this time of day."
Pros: "It was a great flight . It wasn't full so there was a lot of room . It was on time and the Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Go from point a to point b"
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Pros: "The staff did their best with controlling passengers who were a bit difficult. Overall a good experience."
Cons: "Implement the row by row getting off the plane. The flight back to Vancouver people were standing in the middle isle grabbing their carry on and waiting to get off the plane."
Pros: "Air hostess’ were really nice"
Cons: "No snacks offered"
Pros: "Very well organized on check in..."
Cons: "They ran out of most food selections"
Cons: "The staff did not want to accept my ticket purchased through kayak, told me that should have bought a ticket directly through air transat, and they told me to buy a new ticket elsewhere if I wanted to travel on that day. So I had to buy a same day ticket with air canada for an additional $900 CAD, and my ticket bought through kayak was useless, making me waste the entire cost of the ticket purchased through kayak."
Pros: "Leg room was good"
Cons: "Food was lacking or you had to pay for it, not great on a long haul. Terrible films And tiny chairs"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No entertainment system!"
Pros: "Crew amazing. Passengers great"
Cons: "Seats are way too small. Aisles way too tight. Recent acquisition by air Canada must improve passenger comfort."
Pros: "Exit row window seat with empty row beside me. Next to washroom. Got 2hours sleep. All I can ask for."
Cons: "Business class upgrade for free."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Seats were tiny"
Cons: "Checking site was down Boarding was delayed because of crew forgot to tag Cary-on luggage for passengers, we had to all go off the plane to identify our luggage’s No space on the airplane, didn’t get to sit beside my wife. Would not recommend Pay the extra to go with a reputable airline."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Couldn’t fit my carry on in their plane so I was forced to check it, plane was very cold, very little to no leg room"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Better on board entertainment"
Pros: "Nice flying, nice crew, nice jet"
Cons: "Luggage took an hour to get out... unacceptable"
Pros: "the crew was great,"
Cons: "The aircraft was crappy and old. The leg room was smaller than normal, timing delayed by hours, no comp given, still all refreshments needed paying for"
Pros: "Seats had decent space."
Cons: "Only had limited food so when the staff came, they had nothing left except for junk. Pretty pathetic considering we have to pay for it too. They prefer to let their passengers starve. No entertainment. Wouldn't take air Transat again unless I had no choice."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful. Kudos to the pilots."
Cons: "Our flight from YEG to YYZ was delayed by over an hour. Normally this wouldn't bother us, as we did not have a chance to get flight, however, we felt we were deceived and lied to by Air Transat at the gate. Specifically, the staff at the gate indicated that our flight would be delayed "intentionally" according to airline policy, to take advantage of favourable tailwinds to get the flight to YYZ on time. This explanation maked no sense, and was unfounded from a cursory Google search. When we finally boarded an hour later, the captain on the flight indicated that the plane was actually LATE arriving to YEG from a previous flight. I'm not expecting any specific reimbursement for the inconveniences to us or our family picking us up, but we and other customers should NEVER be decieved. If the flight is late, tell us, and indicate whether connecting flights (for those that have them) will be withheld or not or to make appropriate arrangements if otherwise not possible."
Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Smallest seats I've been in in a while. Very poor on board entertainment (one 10" screen for every 4 rows, damaged audio ports, annoying movie choices). Very limited cabin storage."
Pros: "It left fairly promptly. Service was efficient. The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed flight, my seat was bumped from an aisle to a window seat although I checked in online and secured the Seat 24hrs prior to departure. The excuse I was given by staff is that the person sitting next to me is a “big” person so it’s for my benefit. Well the row I had planned to sit in had two people with an empty seat in between. And they were not “big” as was said. my seat I was moved to had sick children behind my seat whom were coughing and kicking the back of my seat and the row was completely full. An aweful experience and to top it off, the planes entertainment program was broken so we were provided with no entertainment, video or audio."
Pros: "Great price! For the price, we didn't expect much, just travel and get there safe - NO FRILLS. We paid a little extra for legroom and are happy this was not an inflated price. Paying in advance for our bag and getting a small discount was also appreciated. "Get what you pay for" without feeling "nickled and dimed" is what we consider economical and fare treatment."
Cons: "Again "you get what you pay for" is considered. However if I was to be critical, the choice of movies was a little stressful and one sided. (Star Wars and The Avengers). I brought my own entertainment but I felt bad for the Older generation who may have preferred something a little more relaxing and less CGI explosions. Also the interior decor and hardware of the plane was seriously aged and worn, which could use for an upgrade soon."
Cons: "Old plane small cabin and seats hurt after 4 hrs."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfy seats, in flight entertainment and charging stations at every seat"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room, hectic boarding"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane noise was loud"
Cons: "Two hour delayed take off. All waited on the plane. Not pleased."
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged and it was not handled well at the airport and I have not heard back from the Airline"
Pros: "Crew and main dish"
Cons: "Seating is incredibly uncomfortable. Too tight for legs or elbows. Terrible cushioning for the back. The temperature was also WAY TOO COLD. Movie selection was absurd and very limited."
Pros: "Staff - Friendly, polite, professional"
Cons: "Couldn't see TV screen Seat wouldn't recline Cramped and uncomfortable for such a long flight. When I arrived in Vancouver and picked up my luggage, the wheel and part of the suitcase were gone (broken off) . How do I make a claim for this? Thank you"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, boarding disorganized, very little legroom, only one beverage service for a 5 hr flight, no snacks (pretzels, peanuts etc)."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable- cushioning badly needs replacing. Poor width of seat."
Cons: "3 hours late due to technical issue on the plane. Stuck in the airport for 3 hours. Crew was very apologetic. Wish more could have been done for us waiting in the dark."
Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
Cons: "Way too cramped a plane, horrible food, crew were not very pleasant. The entertainment system was broken and there was nothing offered to customers. At least give everyone a free drink or something. They told us they tried to fix it but that was obviously not true. And they tell us once were in the air, which is unfortunate because some of us could of downloaded things in advance had we known. Just handled exceptionally poorly. I will not be flying with Air Transat again after this experience. Once was enough."
Pros: "Airline staff were very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable for a transatlantic trip- difficult to sleep."
Pros: "One ground staff member was nice"
Cons: "Ignorant flight attendant, and didn't provide any instructions on how to travel with the baby Served drink, no snacks in whole 5 hour flight, no screens Tight legroom"
Pros: "Seats are very narrow a normal person cant fit in an aisle seat without having a portion of their shoulder sticking into the aisle which means constant bumping. Food was ok at least their was some which was really welcomed. Busy busy flight. Loved that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Cons: "We flew Air Transat from Vancouver to London and back as a family of 3. The seats were some of the most cramped that we've been in. Small space for leg room (and I'm only 5'3"), and the placement of the rigid boxes for the life jackets towards the front part of the seat made it impossible to rest your foot on the bar underneath. The arm rests went up, but not all the way back, so that further restricted room and made it awkward for my son to lean against me to sleep. The entertainment selection was OK, however it was the same for both directions, so the way home offered us a much smaller selection."
Pros: "Air transat is a great airline. Everything from the food to the service was amazing. Would 100% recommend them for your next holiday."
Pros: "Friendly staff , comfortable flight"
Pros: "Nice new plane with entertainment"
Cons: "Pizza not great. Too many annoying unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "Crew were courteous and professional."
Cons: "The seating was extremely cramped, food wasn't fit for consumption, and entertainment..not worth mentioning. These things have nothing to do with the crew, but is directly related to the management and their willingness to annoy and test the tolerance of their customers. Just reflects the tastelessness and cheapness of the airline. Will select other airline next time."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Lighting was terrible, movie selection was not up to date and the food was bad. It took over an hour to be served a microwaved vegetable sandwich"
Pros: "the flight arrived and left on time!"
Cons: "I didn't like the food - could only eat one thing on the menu. More wheat free choices are needed. Crew were not quick to pick up trash or provide drinks of juice and water, tea etc. Seating is very narrow (and I am small -don't know how large people manage)."
Pros: "U. Guys do a GOOD JOB GREAT CUDTOMER SERVICE"
Pros: "Cramped seating. Cost for every thing except coffee, water, and soft drinks."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "The plane sat at the gate for nearly an hour before we left."
Pros: "The staff were really great, they were friendly, attentive and professional. We were flying with an infant in a car seat and they rearranged people's seats so that nobody sat ahead of her (because they wouldn't be able to recline their seats), of the 4 flights on the trip that we had, this was the only one where they did that. Snacks and drinks were solid, pizza could have been better. Sandwich options were good. Change table in some washrooms was great."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a bit light on options for a 9 hour flight but had quality stuff."
Cons: "Should enforce limits on carry on items which causes boarding delays and inconveniences. Some people with large personal items and backpacks and carry on take multiple storage spaces in overhead bins."
Cons: "Check-in was bad. Too few staff for too many people."
Pros: "Great service friendly crew"
Pros: "The flight itself was very good The plane was quite new. Very comfortable seats and plenty of leg room with nothing obstructing the foot space. Good inflight entertainment and complimentary earbuds. Flight attendents were capable and friendly, food service better than average."
Cons: "Check-in at the Air Canada counter was chaotic, a long lineup with only one agent available to direct the crowd. She coped well considering there were multiple people asking questions at the same time. There was a small sign instructing persons who had obtained boarding passes and luggage tags to go to baggage drop but no signs or separate lanes to indicate where that was. Very disorganized. At the gate it was the same scenario. Agents at adjacent desks were calling boarding instructions for multiple flights at the same time. Our Vancouver flight was never actually announced but passengers all started lining up because the stated boarding time had passed. It was impossible to tell which flight was calling for which boarding zones and everyone was wondering out loud "what is going on here?" Once finally aboard we sat on the runway, our flight left an hour late and we missed our connecting flight in Vancouver which, I realize happens. However..."
Pros: "Ride was comfortable and the entertainment was great even thought i slept the whole ride."
Cons: "flight delayed due to late flight attendents"
Pros: "Typical Air Canada flight. Not great but not horrible (surprisingly)"
Cons: "The entertainment systems were broken on our seats but they did give us a small discount voucher."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Delayed Flight, barely made it onto my connecting flight."
Cons: "Zone 5 boarding even after I had pre checked in online."
Pros: "One of the crewmembers (regrettably, I did not catch his name) was incredibly kind when I moved seats to accommodate a couple that wanted to sit together. He really made this flight great."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable but the row I moved to did not allow me to recline."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean plane."
Cons: "Major delays due to poor maintenance. Maintenance is done with passengers on board. No issues with inconveniencing passengers. If you call to complain and ask for compensation, I’ll hey tell you to submit an email and they will respond 3-5 weeks or longer. Will never fly Air Canada again. Will tell everyone on my social media how awful this airline is to customers."
Pros: "Seemed to be more leg room than I recall from past flights."
Pros: "That they give you ear phones"
Cons: "Delay 1 hour"
Pros: "Everything was great. The food was tasty and the flight was comfortable."
Pros: "The friendly staff! Very accommodating and as simple as a smile goes a long way. Kiddos to Air Canada staff!"
Cons: "evry thimg on time"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, old tv screen difficult to use. Awkward seating behind economy plus."
Pros: "Flew economy from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Aircraft looked like a newer Airbus A320 with the new Air Canada branding (black lettering against white fuselage). Air Canada check in process has passengers use self service kiosks first and then take the tags and luggage to the counter. The employees at check in were all very efficient and made sure the line didn't get too long. The flight left on time. Every seat had personal entertainment system, and mine worked great. The flight attendants themselves were very professional."
Cons: "The in flight magazine was water damaged and somewhat soiled (probably from prior passenger's drink). I wish the on ground cleaning crew would take the time to inspect the seat back pockets."
Cons: "We had a 5 hour delayed flight. We received no notification that our flight would be delayed so we were stuck waiting on the airport for 5 hours, which forced us to cancel evening plans with friends that night because the flight landed in Vancouver at 3am the next morning and we didn't get to our Airbnb until around 4-5am. The crew seemed disorganized."
Cons: "Employees seemed somewhat disorganized. There was not enough space in front of counter for people and there luggage. I ticketing agent would yell from far down the counter "Next...Next!) and finally walk closer so people in line could see/hear them. Then, often that next customer could not get to the counter in front of the agent because of the pillars and other people were blocking them. The space was too cramped. At boarding, Instructions over the loudspeaker were not clear and the video screens contained incorrect information about boarding. At one point the agent came out and yelled at everyone to "get out of line!, we are not boarding yet". I have never seen this process handled so poorly and I fly quite a bit."
Cons: "Baggage hasn't arrived after 45 minutes"
Cons: "the flight was 5 hours late"
Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."
Pros: "Flight staff was very professional and very helpful to those who asked or presented a need"
Cons: "When arrived I was told flight was oversold. Told person at desk if needed I could offer my seat as I did not have a definite reason to be home . I was SHARPLY addressed by her that there was no other flight that day so not necessary. WHAT?? made no sense and if seat not needed she could have just said thank you. Proper PR"
Cons: "Really, pulling me off a flight .no explanation are you serious . I am having my lawer look into my legal rights. Expecting a reply. Never in my life have I been treated so badly . I will never fly on Air Canada"
Pros: "- Air Canada reps are nice, just super unhelpful - Friendly team, but not empowered to really help and quick to pass you off to others"
Cons: "- We tried to check in online and got an error message. When we got to the airport 2 hours before our flight, we were told by customer service rep #1 to join a line. At the front of the line, same rep told us "Oh it's probably that now you need a visa." - Why not tell people when they try to check in why there is an error? The new rule went into effect in December, and we hadn't been to Canada since needing a visa. Once we had been accepted, we were passed off to another employee who couldn't figure out why he couldn't check us in. Then another, who said "I'm only helping you because your flight is delayed, the flight should have closed by now." (Not exactly comforting, and considering it took them 2 hours to help, not super helpful either.) - When we ran to the gate, the people running the gate told us that the aircraft hadn't even landed, but weren't communicative in timing, didn't update the time on the boarding screens, etc."
Pros: "Good leg space very comfortable sitting and entertainment television."
Pros: "Flew through custom and was comfortable on the flight. Flight attendants were nice and attentive and made sure i had what i needed. I was happy with everything overall and intend on flying again soon!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was clean & the crew was courteous"
Cons: "There was no decaf coffee or tea, very limited food to buy on board, & no free cookies, crackers or nibbles. Definitely a no frills flight!!"
Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "I'm tired of all your flights being late. Out of my last 4 flights, 3 were late. If you have to land at a domestic terminal and then come around to international-just change your flight time so people actually know when they will be later. Your movies and music are from another planet - is that because you have to include French? Not even a measley bag of peanuts. I will be flying on another airline whenever possible"
Cons: "I paid to upgrade seating and on other airlines you get priority boarding and can store your bag in the overhead bin. Not the case with air canada...not great customer experience compared to delta or united."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "Pre-boarding wait is extremely long with all the different groups. Seems you always have a problem with carry on luggage so those in Group 5 will always be forced to check-in unwillingly. Staff taking ticket is unfriendly at gate - i was YELLED at because I had a thin garment bag along with my small international carry on and purse. it was considered 3 bags .... since when does a dress inside a garment bag warrant a full other carry on? It could have folded into my carry on but the purpose of a garment bag is so you do not have to wrinkled it in your luggage. He moved me to the side and told me I needed to check it in, I was NOT allowed to hang it in the plane b/c i'm not a business passenger. WTF. After 10 min of waiting on the side I folded up my garment bag and shoved it in my purse - after another 5 min he gave me my luggage and told me to head toward the plane. Worst. Flight. Ever"
Cons: "Lavatories didn't flash properly. No tap water"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Comfy seats, awesome new movies to watch. Great staff, very helpful"
Cons: "No free snacks, I mean they came around with drinks but you had to pay for all of the food"
Pros: "It was a safe landing"
Cons: "The flight was late The movies are not current There wasn't even a bag of peanuts Basically no service from the flight attendents"
Pros: "Staff was extremely nice and the plane itself was comfortable- loved the leg ."
Cons: "Flight to Vancouver: Upon arrival I was told that the luggage from my flight 557 was misplaced and put on plane 775. I had to wait an extra two hours for luggage in customs. I was late to the wedding festivities in Whistler that evening. Flight to Los Angeles: The plane was 30 minutes late. We board the plane and discover there is a sensor issue. We wait 30 minutes. then another 30 and then another 30 as more and more news comes about that the problem is not fixable. We de-board and have to wait in a long line at the complete opposite end of the airport. By 1:00am the line has barely moved and all hotel vouchers has been used. I have to spend the evening on a bench in the airport as a single woman- not comforting. I missed important meetings the next day as I am on the flight home. I understand accidents happen but it happened on both my way there and back. My flight home should have been refunded as it put me in a very insecure position and effected my work performance."
Pros: "Smiley and kind crew. Smooth take off and landing in both ways. Clean and organized craft. Being on time. Could not be better. Thank you Air Canada"
Cons: "I am disappointed that all air lines cut the meals"
Cons: "Child behind me kicking seat entire time!!!"
Cons: "The food was not fantastic."
Pros: "Boarding and customs were fine, and the crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Way too little food for the flight. My teenage daughter was starving by the time we got to London. If you are flying Air Canada, bring along extra food/snacks."
Pros: "service staff were nice"
Cons: "didn't like that bags cost USD25 extra. USD10 should be the cost."
Pros: "A clerk of ANA was awesome."
Cons: "The flight to Tokyo was changed at the airport because Air Canada had overbooked and the seats were fully checked-in. So I could not get on my booking flight and had to wait for them to arrange new flight from another air company, to check in it and board for more than 5 hours in the airport!"
