Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."
Cons: "No other airline I flew to Germany with every charged extra for movies. That was really disappointing. We also didn't get our luggage until two days later (which happens, and I completely understand). But what I absolutely didn't understand was that nobody could ever tell me when we would get it."
Pros: "Always happy ... thank you."
Cons: "It was really cold"
Pros: "Flight was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Airline stewards we're not very attentive"

Pros: "Found the crew to be friendly and relaxed. The plane was fairly new. Overall, it went fine as long as you understood it was going to be simple offerings."
Cons: "Apparent aggressiveness to get as many carry on bags paid for by the ground staff measuring with a measuring tape all bags. I've never seen anything like it. My bag was fine. Then, when they started to take fees you had to come back and pay. It wasn't done right then. The ground staff was minimally helpful. Flight amenities or not, pay for headset and having more than 2 TV shows and 2 movies cost you an up charge even on an overseas flight. One choice for dinner.- pasta so it was vegetarian. Breakfast was a sad roll, one small piece of cheese and ham, and fruit that was that questionable. Overnight flight, pillow no blanket in Economy. Seats hard and leg room was tight. Their Economy plus and business looked a much better way to go."
Pros: "The flight was great and nothing to complain about The stewards were very professional, we travelled business and the snacks and the light lunch was perfect Of course the star of the flight was Terence ( I hope I got his name right?) He was the first time someone made feel so welcome on a flight. The guy is so funny and managed to have the entire flight in a happy mood before landing Well done"

Cons: "Flight attendants where great and beautiful"
Pros: "Crew give me feel comfortable!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was cleaned."

Pros: "Direct flight at that time."
Cons: "Seat 32A was freezing! Food? really you are asking about food on airlines. If so can you put negative stars? No one expects good food or even ANY food on airlines anymore. That ship has sailed."
Pros: "Felt a bit dupped. Alaska is amazing. This flight was run by American. I hate flying American. Rude personnel. Older seats. Ugly terminals. Gaps for our feet were not set below the chairs evenly. I had the middle seat but my floor space went into what should have been the aisle seat's space. I felt bad for the guy. Chair support landed right were his foot would have naturally slide forward."
Pros: "We were delayed in LAX about 6hrs. due to a mechanical problem. I know this happens, but when one has a connecting flight to make, it is disconcerting that no one from Alaska addresses that problem. We found out after the fact there were many other flights to Seattle that we could have transferred too and arrived at our final destination somewhat on time..... not at for AM the next morning, 12 hours late!"
Cons: "SORRY, PLEASE SEE "WHAT DID YOU LIKE" Also, luggage was lost in Seattle, bound for Wenatchee, did not have change of clothes for TWO DAYS. Had to purchase extra "stuff". Would have been to have been told about other flights from LAX to SEA-TAC."

Pros: "The staff is awesome and kind and made arrangements quickly."
Cons: "But our flight was altogether cancelled and we had to be routed through Seattle, spend the night there, before heading to our final destination the next day. We'd just been traveling internationally, so this sucked big time, and we went from a total travel time of 20 hours to 40 hours. I would have felt better if they'd given me a voucher for a free flight or something."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Didn't even get a glass of water. What has happened to US domestic. The plane and staff were old and exhausted."
Pros: "Everything was smooth beginning to end. Thanks Kayak"

Pros: "The crew did their job. Some attendants were very kind, helpful."
Cons: "Food could be better. Old aircraft, old style seats. Other airlines have improved this very, very much. Delta is lagging behind."
Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."
Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."
Pros: "- flying business was great. Comfortable chairs that lay flat. - entertainment options are amazing. Worthy of any international flight."

Pros: "Food and service was amazing."

Pros: "All that one would want."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Cons: "No space."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "Booked as Delta but flew WestJet. Crew was amazing!"

Pros: "suppose to be Delta but operated by West Jet"
Cons: "My seat choice was ignored on one flight"
Pros: "The quiet so I could sleep"
Cons: "Changing my seat last minute. Had to ask two women to move to get into my seat. Loading the plane first with passengers that have nothing to store above would expedite the experience for me. My seat belt disconnected from the back of the seat. The tray was broken and could not be lowered into a writing or eating position."
Pros: "I liked that I had a vacant seat next to me."
Cons: "Small, narrow seats and way too cramped. Absolutely no leg room or much space to the seat in front. Terrible for a long haul international flight compared to other airlines. No free alcohol on an international flight!"
Pros: "Flight was very good. We look at t.v. and watch movies to make the flight short."
Cons: "I didn't like when I call and ask about the delayed when told that they were waiting on equipment, then when we get to the airport was told that the flight was a international flight that was running late. The Lies!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was 5 hours delayed. Finally rebooked and still missed all connections because that flight was late departing. All legs of this trip on delta were delayed. Lousy service ast attempting to resolve situation. Given a choice, I do not choose Delta as a first choice airline to fly."

Cons: "NOTHING IT WAS GOOD AND THANK YOU"
Pros: "Smooth, nice flight. Excellence service, they tried to make up for the late pioltes, allowing to broad befriend they arrived."

Pros: "I didn't fly from LA to Indianapolis"
Pros: "Smooth, quiet"
Pros: "Got me to my destination safe and on time!"

Pros: "Excellent from curb to curb 5minutes- curb drop off and check in w curbside skycab, one bag and one bike case! 8minutes - thru TSA! Flight comfort, food,drinks, cleanliness - excellent! The time it took to walk to baggage, my bag was in the carousel and my bike case was at the oversize location, 20ft from the carousel. I was there to compete in the XTerra World Championships, you couldn't ask for a better stress free flight and service, Thanks!"

Cons: "If we have something to watch."
Pros: "I booked Cathay pacific but they changed to China Southern without any notification."

Pros: "The service was excellent and got help with the infant, friendly staff"
Pros: "No delays flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "left on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are worn out"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."

Cons: "It's like taking the bus, it is what it is. Not great but it gets you there."
Pros: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"
Pros: "I like everything"
Pros: "Good quick boarding, left on time. Quick luggage at destination."
Cons: "Getting told to leave the plus section while waiting for the washroom. Too cautious with the tiniest bit of turbulence and the seatbelt sign left on for probably 30 minutes too long."
Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."
Pros: "The trip to Vancouver was good.....flight attendants very courteous and friendly as usual."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "Thankfully our flight wasn't 100% full. Our baby got a seat to herself, which allowed her to sleep the whole trip, ans my legs didn't fall asleep from her weight. Blessing! The staff were very accomodating and friendly for parents travelling with young children."
Cons: "Internet was down so not entertainment whatsoever. Planes of any size or length of travel should have at least a few tv's so we can watch something to pass the time. Cookies are surprisingly delicious, but your choice between pretzels and cookies are very limiting (and boring). Another option would be much loved."
Cons: "Let me see, waited over an hour for a flight to catch up from Ottawa. Now flight to Vancouver over an hour late, gets in about 10 minutes before flight to Hong Kong leaves. So they say will wait for us as flight not full. Nope, flight leaves without 7 of us. Got the " don't know what happened" look. So they give us a $60 dollar food voucher, and take us to hotel because now must wait 12 hours for next flight. Tell us to be in lobby at a certain time to catch shuttle back to airport. Time comes, sorry no room, and buggers off. They call taxis, when drivers find drive for vouchers, tell us to load own baggage! Not likely to fly West Jet again."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
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: "I got off in Edmonton changed gates, and was back on the plane for the last leg of my journey home. Staff again were very helpful! Thanks again WestJet! Christine S North Vancouver"
Pros: "On time. Crew was great"
Cons: "Took a long time for the ground crew to set up the bridge which caused delay in deplaning"
Pros: "Overall everything"
Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."
Cons: "I'm a bit disappointed by the services provided by Westjet: 1) I never received the confirmation of my fight/booking from Westjet; 2) I was not aware that the connecting from LA to SJ and SJ to LA were operated by different companies therefore I was not able to check in or even to check the gate information at the airport. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA in the early morning 3) at the SJ airport, I was not aware that the flight from SJ to LA was operated by Delta not American airline. However, the Westjet customer services 1-888 number listed in your Kayak confirmation was not a correct number. I even tried to look up another customer services number of Westjet by searching the Westjet website, the number I found was not in service neither. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA 4) At the LA airport I was told that I was not able to board the flight because I did not have the Canadian ETA. they said they would pull my checked luggages and flight them with my re-scheduled flight and will be shipped to the final destination Vancouver, Canada. when I arrived Vancouver, both suitcases were not arrived with my flight. One arrived with my original flight and the second were missing. The agent could not even tell me where the suitcase was. Moreover, the second did not arrive the time I was told it should arrive. My second suitcase was not allocated even before I left Vancouver to Europe one day after my travel. 5) No one responded to the luggage services number provided in the document. I could only successfully login to the link for the checking the status after I returned home in Brussels. 6) I was told that the second suitcase will be delivered to my home in Europe by another company. Currently I'm still waiting for my second suitcase."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."
Cons: "No internet and therefore no in flight entertainment."
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Made the connection (no luggage) as signified in the SMS notice of a delayed departure but they had given preferred seat to stand by. No problem just another 90 minutes after a previous 3 hour delay out of Calgary. Not impressed!"
Pros: "Plenty of space. Attentive crew. Food was acceptable."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "I love the new Boeing 787 planes! This was the smoothest flight ever, both from Vancouver to Tokyo and back again. The new planes have the dimmable windows, which are so cool! And, each seat has it's own screen with free movies, TV, flight info, etc. Also, the flights were on time!"

Pros: "I didn't fly from Calgary to Vancouver."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to fill up sons water bottle as we had to empty it before we went through security and I forgot to refill it. Flight attendant was very rude and made a big deal out of having to fill it. Just felt her reaction was over board and quite uncalled for."

Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."

Pros: "Comfort of seats and spaciousness of the plane"
Cons: "Agent off loaded me and only me from return flight with zero reason. Second flight I was put on was delayed 2 hours. Sat for 5 hours in the airport for a 1 hour domestic flight. Customer service was terrible. Emailed Air Canada 4 days ago and have yet to recover any response."
Pros: "The flight attendant in Business class was absolutely fantastic. Very friendly, attentive, and fun. She made the trip special."
Cons: "Business were regular seats, but for such a small plane I understand."
Cons: "Why is it that Air Canada is the only airline that makes you take off your earphones during take off and landing? Are they stuck back in the 1950's?!"
Cons: "The biggest problem was a late arrival resulting in missing the gate and need to wait a hour on the taxiway until a gate cleard."
Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"
Cons: "Return flight delayed. No Reason given"
Cons: "The person checking me in to getting seat assignment must have been having a bad day. She was downright rude."
Cons: "I was NEVER TOLD I would need a transit visa to fly through Canada. I was denied boarding in Entebbe by British Air and had to rebook and pay for another flight on a different airline that didn't fly through Canada. Who has another $1,700 in their pocket to cover such expense? A terrible financial hardship. I will NEVER use Kayak again to book travel."
Pros: "Free TV."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Guy behind me was loud and kept kicking/pushing my seat."
Pros: "This flight was okay since United Airlines operated it for Air Canada."
Cons: "You had to pay to watch movies."
Cons: "your app is useless because it didn't even notify me on the changes to my flight."
Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."
Cons: "They wouldn't offer me any change of the flight unless I paid more than double what I originally paid for the airfare. I just lost an entire airfare because they're change fee's are too much, and they are also not allowing me to change the flight to cheaper prices that I've found available on both Kayak and Air Canada. I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "The crew and boarding is always efficient."
Cons: "It is a must to upgrade your seat if traveling longer than 3 hours."
Cons: "The complimentary earphones provided on the flight were the worst ear buds I have ever worn and were extremely uncomfortable. If you're going to make it so passengers cannot use their own earphones without the sound being distorted, then please upgrade your earphones to something more comfortable. My ears were sore the whole flight trying to readjust the ear buds."
Pros: "I'm happy the flight did continue and I arrived late but not cancelled. I have had numerous bad experiences with AC in last couple years with cancellations, being bumped, flight changes - you name it. A mechanically sound plane is worth the wait"
Cons: "Arriving to the airport thinking flight is 30 delayed only to have been dropped off and then find out I have a 2 hour delay. I live 3 minutes from the airport and then I have to sit in airport for 2 extra hours."
Pros: "Amenable and friendly staff."
Cons: "Getting there really early and being in a late boarding zone."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, flight on time, service and staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding should be from the rear of the aircraft to reduce congestion in the aisles. Need more vegetarian food options."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfy seats, good communication from Captain, efficient boarding"
Cons: "It was all fine"
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."
Cons: "Good tasted so bad, you should try to improve it."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No entertainment system!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; attentive crew."
Cons: "Cabin temperature; too cold."
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: "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."
Cons: "Old plane small cabin and seats hurt after 4 hrs."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane noise was loud"
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Pros: "This was a standard flight.... I slept most of it so it's hard to rate....."
Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Laying $9 for a pillow when they blast the AC. Waiting over 2+ hours to serve the meal when our boarding time was almost 10 pm, and how unhelpful and unpleasant the flight attendants were. The plane was uncomfortable and noisey. For over $1400 for my ticket I shouldn't be made to feel bad for asking for more juice. Just awful service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, boarding disorganized, very little legroom, only one beverage service for a 5 hr flight, no snacks (pretzels, peanuts etc)."
Cons: "would not turn down the AC and charged 10 dollars for a blanket."
Pros: "Nothing - why would you get your clients to use it?"
Cons: "everything- take a look at my review on the App Store"
Pros: "Wine, seats, food"
Cons: "Complete scam . Thought I was booking through kayak and was duplicitously sent to justfly.com which is a complete fraud."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wind caused chaos. Very late notification of delay, confusion at gate."
Cons: "Food was misrepresented in the menu to what was served. Staff were not friendly or accommodating. There was no individual air flow or total cabin air flow."
Pros: "Can’t think of anything except my window seat"
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"
Pros: "Boarding was done efficiently"
Cons: "The seats were awful. Our luggage was severely damaged"
Cons: "We missed connection In Amsterdam to Southampton and in turn missed out cruse!"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The fkight was delayed and they worked very hard."
Cons: "The plane was very outdated. I had an emergency exit seat and the air coming in from the door was freezing. Not worth the money I spent."
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: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Charge for a blanket, limits on carryon were unrealistic,no ice in drink, a crew member was cranky throughout flight,"
Pros: "Air transat is a great airline. Everything from the food to the service was amazing. Would 100% recommend them for your next holiday."
Cons: "The flight is a night flight, so most of us are trying to sleep but we were woken up two hours before landing to be given a piece of cinnamon loaf...I would rather sleep!"
Pros: "Business class seat"
Cons: "2hour delay!"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Below average company"
Pros: "Friendly staff , comfortable flight"
Cons: "I was stuck in another city because a connecting flight was canceled so I never got on my flight to Rome. I didn't get a refund or credit or anything for my flight."
Pros: "There was plenty of room in the overhead bins"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very loud throughout the flight. We expected and overnight flight would be calm, quiet, and with lights lowered. It wasn't at all that way. The overhead lights were on the majority of the flight and it seemed like the flight attendants were always making rounds and loudly talking. We expected to sleep but due to all the noise and commotion were not able to do so. Also, the seats are so tiny it is hard to be comfortable on such a long flight."
Pros: "Super new and clean planes. Crew extremely nice and the best entertainment package included!"
Pros: "They made us feel special. They thought about details."
Pros: "Nice new plane with entertainment"
Cons: "Pizza not great. Too many annoying unnecessary announcements"
Cons: "1 hour delay while sitting inside the plane. No snack nothing to eat"
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: "Direct flight, lines moved relatively fast,the free entertainment on the computer screens"
Cons: "The advertisements on the screens Everytime you changed between catagories"
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: "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: "Air Transat treated us to a very good flight. Flying economy for hours is never the most pleasant of experiences but the return flight was a pleasure. The Airbus plane appeared to be practically new - very clean and comfortable. The flight crew was a nice mix of experienced and fresh - I heard one crew member welcoming her colleague to her first flight. They were cheerful, helpful and gracious. I was able to move to a center row of three empty seats and stretch out to my hearts content and my partner then had two seats for her comfort. We expected a budget flight with no service but instead were offered drinks, a sandwich and a snack. One of the best international flights I can remember."
Cons: "The usual stuff - reclining seats really squeeze your space, fussy babies that after fifteen minutes you wish would just go to sleep..."
Cons: "We boarded then waited 1.5 hours on the tarmac for a couple of passengers who were late from their connection. I don't mind waiting a reasonable amount of time but that was unreasonable and it was hot with no air conditioning. The whole plane shouldn't be delayed that long for a couple of people. Also, no in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Crew not helpful. Uncomfortable seats. Bad food. Will never travel with Air_Transat again."
