Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."

Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."

Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Pros: "Movies- pro staff"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable"

Pros: "The two ladies who were initially boarding passengers were excellent. They had wonderful people skills, were smiling, and extremely personable. I loved the interaction."
Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"
Pros: "Both planes departed late and reason given was staff has not yet arrived . First plane could not rationalize the number of people on board ."
Cons: "Service was slow and staff seemed to be very casual about the fact we would be an hour late"
Pros: "Folks are nice.."
Pros: "Everything was exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Cons: "One of the crew members was not careful enough while taking something out of the overhead cabinet and dropped something on my head while I was asleep. The crew apologized but it should not have happened in the first place while the aircraft was flying smoothly and there was no turbulence of any kind at that time."
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so as a result my carry-on baggage ended up in the cargo hold. And they treated me like it was my fault. Because of that I had to wait for it at the baggage carousel and I missed my Ferry. Pretty pissed about that."

Pros: "Overall everything"
Pros: "The staff with West Jet are extremely helpful and friendly. I wish the American carriers would take lessons from them."

Pros: "It was quick and efficient"
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."

Cons: "The flight was late leaving and most of the passengers needed to catch connecting flights, so there was some anxiety as the crew didn't have any information as to whether or not we'd be able to connect."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "How late the flight was but they gave us a coupon to make up for it"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful, lucked out with exit aisle."
Cons: "Boarding took way too long. Typically an airline will ask people to voluntarily check their overhead luggage free of charge if they know it's a full flight, not on this flight. Instead, they tried to get everyone to board with luggage in hand, then once they realized there was not enough space they asked people to hold on to their luggage while they came through the plane to tag it and stow it below - very inefficient and made the boarding process crazy as people tried to make their way around luggage that was sitting in the aisles."
Pros: "The crew was excellent despite the fact that we were delayed 3 hours due to a broken fuel pump. They were also nice enough to give us a free dinner due to the inconvenience, and let us come off the plane to stretch our legs while we waited. Overall, excellent job handling something that was out of their control."
Cons: "Was not very pleased with the fuel pump being broken. Not sure how far ahead they knew it was broken, but if they were able to tell me my flight would be delayed 3 hours earlier, I could have extended my vacation. Additionally, the selections on the Air Canada entertainment app are far worse than the Westjet ones."
Cons: "Missed the connection in Toronto. Had to spend the night there. My skis arrived one day late to my destination."
Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."
Cons: "Put on Turkish air landed 12 hrs late lggage still missing"
Cons: "Flight was late departing"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "One Stu artist who was a older women she was very grumpy, there was little to no turbulence the whole flight and if you got up to go to the washroom and we’re waiting and seatbelt light came on she would make u sit down immediately even if it wasn’t that rough, she made a girl wait for the washroom for 45. Minutes was kinda pathetic, when she was on her shift break not one person had a issue with any of the other flight attendants only her"

Cons: "Employees very poorly trained in dealing with problems. While our flight was okay, the previous flight was overbooked and a number of transferring customers were bumped because their flight was late. I understand this is common practice, but the employees handled it VERY poorly, even yelling at the passengers when they voiced their dismay at what was going to be a very long layover after a very long international flight."
Cons: "Rouge entertainment system is crappy"
Pros: "I got upgraded to business. I was very happy, because my day in Atlanta was exhausting, and that made the whole thing excellent. Harry Giles"
Pros: "That it got us to Italy."
Cons: "Crew was outright rude, seemed to go out of their way to be disrespectful and unhelpful, no information ahead of time to download the app to get the then subpar entertainment. No wifi option.
