Airline reviews

Pros: "The check-in process was very easy and friendly. The flight attendants seemed nicer than other airlines."

Pros: "Good humoured , polite and attentive crew"

Pros: "As always, great service and flight"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Pros: "left on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are worn out"

Pros: "Flight crew were all smiles."
Cons: "Delayed because something was frozen to the plane. Then delayed again getting de-iced."

Cons: "Delayed over a hour"

Pros: "The friendliness, the options through the app with movies etc"

Cons: "Security took way to long to clear."

Pros: "The airline crew was amazing. The airport staff went above and beyond to help my mother through the airport."
Cons: "Old plane. No WiFi. Movie options were limited."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "WestJet app to watch movies and tv not available. Only old screens in back of seats."

Pros: "It was smooth and uneventful."
Cons: "It was all fine."

Pros: "I really enjoyed"

Cons: "Due to the fact that my trip to was not clearly indicated as non stop it is the first time in thirty years of regular travel that I did not have a direct flight to Calgary. Then I was not able to change my flight at the airport even though there was room available on a direct Westjet flight leaving as close to the same time. But the worst part as after landing we waited for a very long time for the plane to pull up to a gate (unnecessarily burning fuel and poluting the environment). And finally we waited another very long time for the doors of the plane to be opened for disembarkation. More than 3/4 of an hour waiting on the ground after a one hour flight very late in the evening. As a result I hat to take a cab home from the airport. Now I will try my best to not fly Westjet."

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: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"

Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."

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: "Il serait bien d'avertir plus à l'avance les passagers au sujet de l'application nécessaire pour l'entertainement ou permettre de l télécharger via le wifi de westjet"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Overall everything"

Cons: "It was freezing cold, and blankets now cost $4.00! So I spent the whole red eye shivering, even in my sweater! I could feel the cold air hitting me the whole flight. The boarding was confusing, with no organized lines or anything. Some of the announcements were too quiet to hear."

Pros: "The crew and staff were great on the plane. Could use more staff at the checked bags area but overall good experience"
Cons: "More agents at the check in desk"

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."

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

Pros: "WestJet staff and crew fantastic"

Pros: "Attendants made the flight very enjoyable I hope you honour them for their amazing service."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Luggage came fast. Car rental was great."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."

Cons: "The long wait to get my baggage."

Pros: "Staff was kind as usual. Some channels didn't work so they gave us complimentary movies."

Pros: "Everthing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seamless boarding"

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."

Pros: "Timeliness of the boarding"
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"

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: "It was quick and efficient"

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: "Very friendly, laidback staff - both in the terminal and on the flight. The onboard wifi was also great and quite affordable!"
Cons: "Upon arrival, we waited quite a long time for our baggage to be unloaded without an updates."

Pros: "Food was good and prompt."
Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes"

Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Cons: "They didn't let us know ahead of time and there wouldn't be televisions. If you hadn't downloaded the WestJet app you couldn't watch TV. You had to rent a tablet for seven dollars or buy an Internet package to download the app. That's fine just frustrating"

Pros: "Crew did their best."
Cons: "Lost time on a short holiday by the delay and by the lost luggage. Shopping took time and cost me money."

Pros: "My first flight with WestJet. Lots of legroom. Very comfortable."

Pros: "Too many delays."

Cons: "The flight didn't provide free upgrades although the seats were empty for premium class."

Pros: "Good service. Really nice smooth flight."

Pros: "everything ran very smooth . friendly staff."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat not enough space."

Cons: "It was all excellent."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Stewardess never smiled once! She was approx age 45 and should know by now how to be professional. Not the start to a vacation anyone would want."

Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."

Pros: "The ✈️ and timing"
Cons: "Amounts of food is ridiculously little for someone who gets hungry fast"

Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The five hour delay of departure was not fine."

Pros: "Airplane, entertainment and food was ok"
Cons: "Air canada service is terrible as usual. Service with an attitude. No drinks served!"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Being 6' 4'' becomes an issue with modern seats."

Pros: "The pods were great on 777"
Cons: "Couldn't plug in CPAP"

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Paid extra for a little bit more leg room and ONE free drink which I had to remind them it was free. My seat didn't recline. My Tuscan Wrap was tasteless -- no it tasted like sawdust, and the food was not even complimentary with the "plus" charges like it is on Westjet. No preboarding traveling with a pet. ☹️"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing so far, thanks."

Cons: "JustFly did not release my coupon to Lufthansa or Air Canada, and so I was nearly prevented from flying."

Cons: "Mix up with seating had boarding card reprinted twice and no one could explain why it happened. Staff otherwise were good."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"

Pros: "Air Canada's business seat is one of the best out there, and the crew on this flight was super friendly. Extra props to the service director, Joseph."
Cons: "Boarding was slow for business class joining after zone 2 announced. Despite being parked at a gate with two jetbridges, only one was used. AC could use a refresh on its entertainment selection - hasn't changed much over the summer."

Pros: "The attendants were friendly. The air conditioning was on point. Good music. I listened to the new slowdive for the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I remember not liking. It was great."

Pros: "Great gluten free meal. Calling ahead of time to order was well worth it."

Pros: "This flight was cancelled; I don't have any remarkably positive comments about it."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for several hours after we had already boarded (due to maintenance, I think), then was unexpectedly cancelled. Air Canada staff did not communicate with us clearly about the cancellation. We asked several staff members for help and some of them simply walked away; seemed like staff did not know what was going on. We over 90 minutes for in-person assistance, only to be directed to a telephone to re-book our flight. We missed an entire day of our trip to Japan. I'm very disappointed in my experience flying Air Canada."

Pros: "Nice new plane Decent food Very clean Friendly staff Ok entertainment"
Cons: "People had a lot of bags, and their zone boarding concept means I got on last and little to no room for my one average carry on..."

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."

Cons: "To small of plane."

Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"

Pros: "Flights left on-time. Leather seats reclined comfortably. Crew offered plenty of food & drink throughout the flight. I would definitely consider booking again with Air Canada"

Cons: "Carry on bags of 2 delayed seating of people"

Cons: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."

Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "TV didn't work Not snack or snack/food options even asked Got offered a drink much too late in the flight"

Pros: "Attractive and competent flight attendants What a soft landing"
Cons: "Water tasted off Leg room inadequate for 6'1" person French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"

Cons: "Lost my bag, I had to wait an hour and a half and missed a meeting."

Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Entertainment console didn't work"

Pros: "friendly prompt service, comfortable seats - free tv and movies"
Cons: "had to circle for about an hour before we were able to land due to a storm but that wasn't the crews fault - just bad luck"

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."

Pros: "Entertainment system might have been nice if the earphone plug worked."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat of all time because it was broken but the flight attendant didn't care."

Pros: "It was excellent!"

Pros: "Decent movie and game selections."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unhappy, sassy and got frustrated easily."

Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"
Cons: "Return flight delayed. No Reason given"

Cons: "Being next to toilets at bulkhead. People queing for bathroom in the extra leg space. I was on the outside seat and people constantly brushed past me and often grabbed hold of the moveable TV set in the dark to steady themselves knocking it. I paid extra money and had more problems. Listened to constant bathroom flushing and odors. Not ideal!"

Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue. The food was horrible. I will never fly Air Canada again."

Cons: "No complementary food"

Cons: "Q400 noisy, lack of storage space"

Pros: "It was a short flight so even if it was bad I wouldn't have minded that much but the plane was clean and smelled nice. Flight was very uneventful which is good."
Cons: "I have no complaints."

Cons: "The ticketing/gate staff in Calgary are some of the rudest I've ever encountered."

Pros: "everything is Ok."
Cons: "space is too small."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Service. Rude workers"

Pros: "Run by united but more efficient than a recent Air Canada flight."
Cons: "3 hour flight and had to pay extra for entertainment. Only two biscuits given for food. Cramped seats for anyone 6ft tall."

Pros: "Although I had to fast forward to get to the end of the movie I did enjoy it."

Pros: "Overall it was good. The crew was very friendly. The plane was small and it was a short flight, so everything else was average as expected for a short flight."

Pros: "Just awful"

Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"

Pros: "No entertainment beyond ipod rental..."
Cons: "Not enough time (1 hr.) for connection in Calgary... very stressful in USA Customs line and subsequent USA security line... baggage did not make flight and still not received in 38 hours... difficult start to vacation."

Cons: "It was cancelled"

Cons: "Tech delay out of London made me miss the connection to Kelowna. Was transferred to Westjet"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food, comfort"

Cons: "The outfitter canceled us so we did not go. It was out of our hands that the outfitter canceled us for certain reasons such as whether poor infrastructure, but we are still going to have to pay a Re-booking fee and Processing fee for each passenger."

Cons: "I work at an isolated mining camp and could not fly out due to weather and when I tried to reschedule or cancel my flight with Canadian north the cancellation fees, rebooking fees were more than the cost of purchasing a new flight straight through air canada. I will never use this service again."
