Pros: "I was given an exit row seat since there were so many open seats and it reminded me of flying before 9/11. I’m 6’6” and pre9/11 I was always ushered to an exit iris seat. So it was extremely thoughtful of the check-in agent to do that for me."

Pros: "Always like Alaska flights"
Pros: "Great flight, lots of attention by crew. Arrived early!"
Cons: "I upgraded seats for $99. Compared to Hawaiian Airlines upgrade for $80 return trip from Honolulu to Oakland, Alaskan was disappointing. One older stewardess with long blk/grey hair and glasses was rude. I asked her a question and she told me to sit down. I was waiting to use the restroom. Must have been a bad day for her.

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "The service the last time I called"
Pros: "Quick flight"

Cons: "Most of the plane was asked to use the back restrooms which caused quite a line for quite some time."
Pros: "Travel time, good flt crew and flt."
Cons: "Seats were to short"
Pros: "I'm glad it was a short flight!"
Cons: "It was hot. Really, really hot. They were talking about taking us back to our destination, but that call, positive or negative, should have been made before the flight as we didn't have equipment failure post-boarding. The idea that we'd go back is ludicrous if we'd already pushed from the gate. Get it together, Alaska."
Pros: "Extremely friendly crew and they were very apologetic for the delay. Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "There was a one hour delay and I really wish I had gotten an email telling me about it before I left"
Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"
Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."
Pros: "The boarding process was unhurried and they offered free checked bags to keep the overhead storage from overflowing."
Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."
Pros: "the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time."
Cons: "1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines has chargers at each seat! So convenient. They also have free messaging, and movies! They also de-board their luggage super quickly - I walked off the plane, grabbed my luggage, and was on my way as quickly as if I only carried-on!"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing the crew could do; weather conditions"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "There were several issues with my electronic boarding pass. Both on my way in for this flight and previously on another Alaska Airlines flight."
Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."
Cons: "Again, the size of the plane, interior."
Cons: "A long line for the aft toilets, and crew told us we couldn't use the empty toilet at the front because first class passengers pay more. This was TWO attendants making people wait when at least one other toilet was open up front on a five hour flight. Is this even legal? Very disappointed in lack of consideration for health and comfort. Thanks for listening."
Pros: "Fast and easy boarding even with a really busy holiday weekend. Clear communication with crew and staff who make sure to make things as easy as possible really made a potentially chaotic boarding really great! The type of plane is noisy, but I was still able to hear the flight attendants and they were patient with the passengers."
Cons: "I can't eat dairy so having a cheesy cracker snack is a bummer, but I my seat mates on both flights were really excited about them (I said they could take my crackers and they said their kids would be really happy) so I figure it's fine!"
Pros: "I like the announcement for every situation and weather and time. But people at the entrance do not say welcome and when you leave they don't say anything. Other wise it is very good."
Pros: "I am a flexible, thin, 5'0" person and had a hard time sitting on that plane! Ugh. I don't know how bigger people make it through the flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Crew kept bumping me in flight. Deplaning took too long."
Cons: "The man sitting next to me was coughing and not covering his mouth. I am especially concerned given the recent Coronavirus outbreak."
Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"
Pros: "Everything except the delay was fine, not extraordinary."
Cons: "7-hour flight delay. If this was a European flight we would have been entitled to at least $250 for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything to compensate us for a 7hour delay, which was ridiculous."

Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "After boarding the door was closed and the jet way was moved back. 5 minutes later they said they were going to bring the jet way back and open door to let more people on board. They broke 2 FAA regulations by doing this and we were delayed an hour because Deltas computer would not allow this."
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "The care and good food was much appreciated. There were plenty of excellent movies to watch to make the time pass in an enjoyable way."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. No issues. Friendly staff. We had to fill out customs declaration forms but didn’t have a pen. We asked stewardess for a pen and they didn’t have any left. She said to borrow from a neighbor which I thought was rude. We don’t know our neighbors. If a flight requires filling out a form, they should provide enough pens to do so."
Cons: "Not enough pens"
Cons: "Confusion with shuttle to terminal 4"
Pros: "Everything was really great"
Cons: "I can’t no say anything bad"

Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Cons: "I was good with the flight, my friend had some allergy problems with the ac."

Pros: "Customer service was great"
Cons: "They change schedule day before we flight, the change schedule 2 time while were flighting"
Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"
Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
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: "Ability to change planes with a 30 minute layover."
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."

Cons: "Only minimal snacks available due to shorter flight."
Pros: "Cormfortable and brief"
Cons: "A screaming spoiled three year old that started acting out in the boarding area and progressed to screaming for things at the boarding gate and didn't stop until we were almost there. At the top of her lungs screaming!! This was no child with ear issues, this was a child with parents that don't say no! Bad towards the front, I can't imagine how it was for the poor people seated in the back. Geez!!!!"
Cons: "Will never fly with WestJet again regardless of price."
Pros: "when you enter Canada and then travel through YVR for another flight it is a total waste. Not the fault of the airline but the way they do things with security"
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Cons: "The plane was so cold that despite wearing jeans, a shirt, a sweatshirt and a jacket I was barely comfortable. Explanation from crew? Well, it was very hot in Phoenix so we had the AC jacked up. But at 35,000 feet that's no longer a problem, right? Neither is is necessary in 68-degree F Calgary."
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: "Just a nice easy flight with zero issues"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was very good."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have coffee on the flight. All they had to offer was a snack and a glass of water."
Pros: "Flight was excellent. Crew was very courteous and very friendly."
Cons: "The only thing I wish I had more was more other options for fluid besides water."
Cons: "Serving with patience. Not being late all the time for boarding and for off-boarding."
Pros: "Kayak is great for finding the right flights that fit my travel schedule. WestJet staff are very friendly and are very helpful getting you on board the plane."
Cons: "The WestJet BASIC fare restrictions are very anti-customer centric. I know the fare is about price only. However, prior to the change the airfares were the same, but the restrictions, like missed flights were less penalizing. This fare structure is a WestJet - Win; Customer - Lose."
Cons: "Poor service before boarding."
Pros: "As always, great service and flight"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Amazing Service at the registering counter at the airport. One for the two flight attendants was very nice. Unfortunately, he was not the one assigned to my section."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was incredibly dismissive. “Forgot” to ask for my order to get lunch, so needed to call him so he could take my order (he was already in the middle of eating his own food) and of course by then what I asked for was not available, and the options for food were bad. On top of that, the trash from the top of my table was not cleared for a long, long, long time (even though everyone else’s in my section were clean). First time this happens to me in all my years of flying, specially in upper economy class."
Pros: "The manager who finally helped me was friendly and listened the entire time even when I was angry. She was concerned and helped me the best she could. The stewards are always friendly"
Cons: "There was only one agent on to check tickets. I was in line for 45 minutes and when I got to her, she just said over and over, there is nothing I can do, your flight time was just cut off. I would have to wait until the flight the next day. Even though I had no bags and there was still 35 minutes before take off. I also told her I knew I would be late and so spoke to someone from Westjet he night before. She smiled like I was lying to her. Lines should not be so black and white. If she would have just processed my ticket I would have had 35 minutes to get to my gate instead of 10. When you are flying with half full planes there should really be better ways to manage customer service."
Pros: "good value for money. Staff were helpful"
Cons: "A direct route from St John's to London."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, uneventful which for a plane ride is great"
Cons: "Nothing really, plane was smaller than expected with limited overhead space but everything was able to fit in the bin"

Cons: "One hour and ten minutes late. Arriving after midnight with one notification of a 30 minute delay not 70."
Cons: "The flight delay"
Pros: "Crew were wonderful."
Cons: "There was no westjet connect on the flight. Which is fine for a short flight, except that before west jet got rid of their TVs this flight had entertainment."
Cons: "Check in process was brutal. Two different pieces of advice from two different agents. Boarding from front to back of plane is inefficient. Creates clogged aisles."
Cons: "Food and entertainment are not options on this short flight."
Cons: "unfair airport taxes...we really get screwed by our government"
Cons: "no entertainment I didn't order food so can't comment on this The seats are too close for comfort"
Cons: "First leg of flight was cancelled. Plane didn't come in at midnight as scheduled, so was not available for departure at 6:20 AM. WestJet did not inform anyone - including Kayak. Apps westjet & kayak said departure was on time, but there was no plane."
Pros: "This flight had individual screens!"
Pros: "Got upgraded to 1st class with Julie and Jackie with ur outstanding cabin steward Fabricio who served us with grace & charm for our 5+ hour flight from Cancun to Calgary which literally flew by. Brilliant marketing strategy. I love WestJet!"
Pros: "WestJet staff is always friendly and I like the comedy slant they use on the announcements"
Pros: "Lots of room and overall smooth flight. Watched the free wifi entertainment, not the most current but a good selection."
Cons: "It was chilly on the flight despite not having the vents turned on in my row and blankets are no longer provided without cost. I did not want to be cold but I also did not want to own a west jet blanket."
Cons: "Was delayed 3 times"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to start at 10:20, but was delayed for at least 30 with no updates. In fact, they were still showing the flight as leaving on time up until the last second, which is not ok. Gotta keep the passengers updated folks!"
Pros: "Our flight from Australia was delayed, resulting in our missing our connecting Westjet flight. Not only did Westjet get us on the next available flight, but the staff were friendly and very helpful. They made it seem like it was no problem at all, even though we were on the cheapest fare."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Left late but arrived on time!,"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "The people, the timeliness, the attitudes - all were great!"

Cons: "Having to board the plane walking outside.It was raining and there were puddles everywhere. Flight was delayed"
Pros: "While the flight took off 30 minutes late, the pilot made up the time in air."
Pros: "The staff remained positive in a negative situation."
Cons: "The time delay was unfortunate. If we receive a reimbursement for out lost time, everyone will respect WestJet again."
Pros: "They tried"
Cons: "Too many delays. Somehow waiting party told flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Direct flights...friendly staff...well kept aircraft..."
Cons: "Long wait to board due to people checking in on line and having to show passports at the last moment...delaying boarding for everyone else..."
Cons: "No wine to purchase this time"
Pros: "The breezy, confident preflight announcements of the crew, including (from the Captain) "We are flying into Kelowna today, where the weather is always awesome even though it is a bit overcast and 5 degrees C..." and from the flight attendant on landing, "We have arrived in Kelowna. If you live here--Lucky You! You are almost home! And if you don't live here, welcome to the Okanagan! We hope you enjoy your stay." I was only disappointed that the sentence including 'lucky you' was not included in the French translation. C'est d'hommage..."
Pros: "Timing flights were on time."
Cons: "Baggage delay at vancuvour and as well as in calgary."
Pros: "All Good"
Cons: "After landing in Edmonton could of been on next flight to Kelowna ended up waiting 1 1/2 for second flight to Kelown"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, efficient boarding."
Cons: "The entertainment system crashed about 3 hours into the flight and had to be shut down"
Pros: "I really liked the service with West Jet. The people were so friendly and helpful, and that was huge since we were not as familiar with Canadian procedures. After we got on board the flight, I do not remember much since I literally got on the plane and went to sleep. But I was comfortable enough to sleep!"
Pros: "Kayak is cool. Westjet is meh."
Cons: "Both departure and return flights delayed by over an hour. All I hear is the same reason over and over again. Figure it out."
Pros: "There were no issues whatsoever, all went as planned."
Pros: "It was quick and efficient"
Cons: "It was a little warm and stuffy while loading."
