Worst experience ever. Stranded twice, coming and going. They refuse to complete the trip. I will go to court
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Rough weather. Stopped delivering water and snacks. Seat belt off and no attempt to continue water and snacks for 20 minutes. Then started back at front again to those who had already been served once. When got to me no snacks offered. Had to ask."
Pros: "Crew did their best."
Cons: "I'm writing this from the plane I'm still on because they didn't have anyone on shift to work the jetway. We've been on the ground for half an hour. Just a completely avoidable annoyance they didn't bother to avoid."
Cons: "The food could have been better. I don’t mind paying but some nicer, healthier choices would have been nice. It is airplane food so no real surprise. :)"
Pros: "excellent crew - seat is fine."
Cons: "screen monitor per seat."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on the flight."
Pros: "flight was fine and on time, this leg of my trip was easy"
Pros: "The crew were nice!"
Cons: "But this was like flying in an antique from the 20th century. No screens, AC not working well, tiny cabin. One of the bathrooms didn’t even have a sink."
Pros: "Good legroom in premium economy, power outlets at all seats"
Cons: "WiFi speed was terrible"
Cons: "We were on tarmac for an hour waiting to take off"
Pros: "On time and friendly crew, plenty of leg room as well."
Cons: "The flight was delayed to 8:50 from Vancouver to Toronto. I got to the check in counter at 8:00 but was denied to check in my luggage though the cut off time is 45 minutes. So I wasted my tickets."
Cons: "Delays left us in the plane for almost 1 1/2 hours before leaving Toronto."
Pros: "Great service and on time."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Nice staff."
Cons: "Poor entertainment. I usually watch movies on my iPad but there was no wifi and the available TV shows were not to my taste, the screens were small and not clear. The magazine was boring, no games to play. Flight delayed an hour for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "guess they are a budget airline, since Millar to Rouge, Air Transat etc. Didn’t realize they weren’t a real airline company. As said, this is our first time using WestJet."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The lady at the checkin desk volunteered me to check my carry on and told me that she would charge me if I didn’t comply. ( there was more than enough room on the plane for me to store it). The plane wreaked of poo the whole flight and it gave me a head ache, which my Tylenol was in my carry on that the lady forced me to check. And the flight was only supposed to be delayed 15 min, and we didn’t take off until 45 min later, which made us miss our connection. Very disappointing service/ flight from WestJet!"
Pros: "West jet always known for above and beypnd service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great"
Cons: "No power chargers on the planes"
Cons: "For some reason, the return was in Hamilton not Toronto. Unfortunately, I noticed after I paid. Not sure why the flight wasn't from Toronto."
Pros: "Did not even make the flight out of tulsa do to Frontier airlines"
Cons: "Read above"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Food cart passed us because we had our head down... they must have thought we were sleeping, gum stuck in magazine, the amount of ads before watching a show"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, so I was going to miss my connector. They made some calls and got me booked on a British air flight straight to my destination. Thank you!"
Pros: "The cabin crew were outstanding on WS709 today. This is my fourth trip with Westjet, and today stood above. Diane was beyond efficient and pleasant while maintaining a smile and grace, while a number of unattended children were onboard. My seat was changed, and that's fine - mostly because of the manner in which the crew at Pearson handled it. Then, I couldn't resist giving up my re-assigned (centre) seat so that two sisters could sit together. The two folk in my row were lovely, they talked more than I did, but when I joined in, it was a genuinely pleasant conversation. Three strangers, meeting per chance. The woman next to me had given her seat up for a family to sit together, so it really was a chance encounter! Diane needs to be promoted!"
Cons: "While things happen, I wonder why when I was readied a seat, it was missed that two children, sisters, were sitting in separate rows? Should they have automatically been assigned two seats together - they were unaccompanied. As happens, an 'aunt-like' woman was seated next to them, and again, Diane was an another in-charge auntie!"
Pros: "Good service but pretzel is not great good. Very Nice stewardesses."
Cons: "The seated are too small, a bus is more confortable."
Pros: "Crew was great. Tea or coffee would have been nice. Having to pay for everything is ridiculous"
Cons: "Three sets of crying children and parents who unable or reluctant to deal with them. Held everyone hostage."
Pros: "On bird staff"
Cons: "Pay for WiFi"
Pros: "Lacking social skills ! One on the flight attendants had numerous holes in her sweater. So unlike most West Jet employees!"
Cons: "Unprofessional! Lazy ! Very ungroomed ! I thought this was the worst two flight attendants l have ever seen with West Jet ! Had this been my first flight, I’d never return! Lots of options to fly with other air lines. That was flight from Toronto to Ottawa. Now the flight from Tampa to Toronto, the female flight attendant in the Plus section was an “ air head “ ! I had preordered the chicken salad & since l was in the plus section on the plane l paid more willingly and when l asked for the cheese & grapes container, she rolled her eyes, came back with the food & no knife and fork to eat the salad ! I tried to get her attention & since that didn’t work, I used the buzzer! I politely asked for a knife & fork to eat the salad! The young flight attendant had trouble processing the information so l very politely repeated my request! Lordie, it was training day at West Jet !"
Cons: "- The unprofessional way the staff "sorted us out". Especially the lady at check-in. Our flight was from NY to Toronto and then connecting after a nine-hour layover from Toronto to London. On all flights, we got the seats in the middle of the aircraft allocated, which is challenging when you are on crutches. - The second flight to London was in a terribly old machine where the overhead compartments were not well equipped to accommodate my crutches. The only way they fitted was at the very back underneath all the luggage. So when I asked the flight staff to help me get my crutch to go to the toilet, as I could not get it myself, he asked: "do you really have to use it?". I considered that very rude! - The selling of the entertainment systems took forever, which meant that the food sale was very late. Almost 4 hours into the flight on an overnight flight is really late! Especially when people would prefer to sleep. Due to my medication, I had to wait for food, but it took forever. All in all, not the best experience"
Pros: "Piot gave clear and timely announcements as flight was delayed do to weather,. In-flight crew were friendly and providing a relaxing environment. The include meal was very good."
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Bathroom was in terrible condition."
Pros: "There was a cute doctor and someone made a joke about the movie Alive. That was funny."
Cons: "There was a sick lady and she wouldn't stop coughing. That was gross"
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Pros: "The peace & quiet. Excellent flight attendants. Comfort was great"
Cons: "Nothing really was bad about the flight. The westjet connect had to be reset but that was the only issue. Flight was delayed 30 minutes."
Cons: "avoid the westjet encore flights. planes are small and noisy. if you sit next to a window it’s impossible to comfortably put both feet on the ground. if you pay for plus seating on an encore flight you’re basically paying to get on and off first. there’s no extra room and would be more fairly priced at $10."
Pros: "I liked how quickly the flight was. I believe they actually made better time than what was originally estimated. I was also able to get my checked luggage as soon as I got to the carousel."
Pros: "Leg space, prompt on-board service"
Cons: "Boarding delays"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is awful to non-existent. The wifi doesn't work especially on a laptop. On the return flight is wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!! The 20 schedule changes and very confusing schedule (they showed us on 2 separate flights from DTW on Dec 25th morning). I have no idea how that would happen. The gate agent at Delta (first leg) had a hell of a time sorting it out despite a long call to the WJ help desk."
Pros: "The westjet staff is wonderful!"
Cons: "the lack of information during the delay"
Pros: "One flight attendant"
Cons: "Everything. I never right reviews but I fly everywhere and this was the worst experience ever. Delayed flights and bad instructions. Really horrible customer service"
Pros: "Pretty quick boarding, although the boarding time was incorrectly mentioned to be too early."
Cons: "Had to de-ice so we left about 10 minutes later than expected, but somehow still arrived early… but our gate had another plane still using it. We ended up arriving at our gate 25 minutes late. That's unacceptable, especially on a flight that's just an hour long. The gate was so far from the public transportation (landed at Terminal 3, public transport is at Terminal 1) that I missed the bus - got home super late as a result."
Pros: "Friendly , helpful staff . Who know what they are doing and try to accommodate you with minimum fuss ."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind this trip"
Pros: "Very helpful and friendly staff."
Cons: "Having to leave Costa rica"
Pros: "i Liked the ginger ale, and that we made it safe to Canada."
Cons: "Said it was boarding at 3:30 - didn’t board until 5 minutes before take off. Also it was a delayed flight."
Cons: "Wi fi didn't work"
Pros: "Two snacks, even if the snacks were a little on the small side;"
Cons: "A little cramped; small TV screens; the attendants ran out of hot water"
Pros: "West Jet flights have little to no leg room. They also let ok much overhead baggage per person so boarding and getting off plane takes too long."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Staff tried to do what they could but unable to really do anything. They only repeatedly messed up boarding passes causing me to miss flights."
Cons: "The planes were not in working order. The first plane had a hole in it from hitting something the flight was completely cancelled only one out of the two people at the counter was helping a line of people, but due to a system error people were not checked in . I had to get 4 different print outs of my boarding pass. the second aircrafts air conditioner didn't work, the third plane the back door would not close. I spent over 12 hours in the airport and couldn't get home till the following day . The airline did not have a hotel reservation ready as promised and had to wait an additional 15 minutes while they were telling me I was responsible for my own room. Eventually they got me a room and gave me a voucher. I would never fly or recommend West Jet i just don't feel safe."
Pros: "Service up to standards"
Cons: "Delay because of “not enough fuel on the aircraft” while ready on the runway for takeoff... 2 hours delay..."
Pros: "The airline gave each passanger free dinner prior to the flight for being delayed. The in flight attendants were very friendly and helpful. Very efficient with their tasks and security checks."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours due to a thunderstorm in toronto."
Upon arrival at the Guadalajara airport, we waited for the luggage for more than 1 hour because "there was no staff available to transfer it to the band", all the passengers were very upset.
Didn’t like that we purchased first class seats over 5 months ago to be moved out of our seats, receive a message that we could up grade back into first class and when I call to talk with someone in the airline be told that we been but on a different plane with no first class and must accept what we are given. Then we board and find out there was first class with empty seats and we weren’t allowed because we agreed to be moved to a lower class prior to boarding.
Respect the offers they make. speed up boarding
I lost a luggage on the plane and auromexico has not been helpful

Pros: "All in time"
Cons: "Size of sits"
Pros: "The boarding was made very comfortably. The staff was nice."
Cons: "1h late departure, but we arrived at the expected time. Seats were not very confortable, but everyone had an individual tv. We bought a flight Montreal-Mexico-Panama City, but for some reasons, it was impossible to get boarding passes for the second part of this flight... We had to check-in again in Mexico city."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "The food was very bland, we had to wait 25 min on the tarmac waiting for take off."
Cons: "Disaster of a flight - two hours late and blew connections in Mexico City for 11 people in our group."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to my destination on time, Barely. The crew was professional but not too involved, mostly hung out in the back of the plane having personal conversations. Pilot was very dry, and I really didn’t feel welcome to be a passenger."
Cons: "The boarding process is ridiculous, rush everyone to a bus and just to sit on a plane for an hour?! That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen experienced during a flight. What were the flight attendants doing?? Nothing. Didn’t offer any water or a misery of a snack while we waited. The pilot didn’t tell us anything, like where we were in line for departure, or what the hold up was. Very poor flight experience. I will avoid Mexico City airports and Aeromexico for a while...please contact me for more details. Thank you."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Our group of 11 missed our connecting flights in Mexico City because the plane was two hours late. Cost us thousands of dollars and a day of our time."

Cons: "Nothing to add"
Pros: "Crew members are great and always willing to help"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable"
Cons: "We could have left on time, not an hour 1:35 hrs late. The passenger next to me could have taken a shower to kill the super strong body odor. My seat could have reclined and The entertainment could have worked. But none of there happened so it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "It was a basic flight. Their check in system was down so they had to hand write boarding passes and baggage tags. They were professional and patient even when a customer started cursing because his bags could not be checked all the way to his final destination due to the computer issues."
Pros: "The warmth service that made me feel at home"
Cons: "No pude tomar mi vuelo por un error entre su plataforma, la de priceline y la de Aeromexico en el que finalmente salí afectada yo.. Es la peor experiencia que he tenido y no volveré a utilizar sus servicios."

Cons: "They over sold my flight did not let me board"
Cons: "My personal hand bag was taking away from me. I couldn’t carry with me and it was open and stolen my new pair of Jordan shoes Thanks"
Cons: "On the first leg of my trip, the time shown on the boarding pass was the time I needed to be at the gate. For this leg of the trip, the time on the boarding pass was the time the plane left. I arrived at the gate at the time the boarding pass said and the plane had already left. I am traveling to my father's funeral and the only option I had was to rebook for an additional cost of $600. Extremely upset."
Pros: "I loved the food and the movies"
Cons: "The pilot landed really bad i almost return all mu food"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment center and the staff service"
Cons: "They don’t put something to eat between meals Like other airlines that you could get up and grab"

I don't understand why they couldn't let me through or hold for me. It ruin my ground transportation reservation which I had to reschedule. The whole thing was frustrating and cost me more money that what i thought i was saving."
Cons: "There is no veg food option. The staff at airport (mexico city) were very rude and not helpful at all. They tried to take money from us for a stupid reason about my dog. They deliberately took so long that I missed my flight. They gave me ticket in the next day flight and that too in 1st class that costed me almost the whole fair of the trip. I had too much hassle to deal with by booking hotel, taxi etc."
Pros: "The service was extraordinary since the first moment I checked in. Crew was super attentive, professional and over standing. The service in airport was fast and efficient and in the plane crew and services totally exceed my perspectives. Thank you!"

Cons: "our departure flight was delayed for over 1 hours and our return flight was delayed for over 2 hours.

Aeromexico flights were the only ones being delayed for long periods of time."
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Flight 1: bathroom bigger. Flight 2: good service. In flight 2, the service was better. We could sit next to each other. Flight 2 had better entertainment, more choice of movies and better screens."
Cons: "In flight 1, from São Paulo to Mexico City, my husband and I were separated. It was suggested by the stewardess for him to move to another seat 20 rows away due to his size. Instead of separating two people, why not ask the single person if she would rather have more room. But the steward said only one of us could move, me or my husband. The reason he was moved was that there were two empty seats, so he could sit comfortably; however, no one told the woman sitting in the three seat aisle that he would be sitting there. So she basically took over her seat and the neighbouring one. The crew should have been the one to inform her the reason for his move there. It was a horrible and unnecessary experience. Because of my husband's size, I am needed to help him with his tray and I had his medication."
Pros: "boarding and leaving plane, the wheel chair service, nice helpful crew, flight departed and landed on time, snack and beverage."

Pros: "Smooth and professional"
Pros: "The convenience of the direct flight"
Cons: "it is a shame that for an international trip, with a "superspecial rate" of almost 700 USD. We still had to pay to register 1 piece of luggage.

Pros: "On time. Easy travel"
Cons: "The lady in the counter at Leon was very nasty, She was very mean and unhappy. I wish I had her name but you should talk to the employees of Leon, Gto. México. For the unprofessional way to talk to the family ravelers."
Pros: "The flights to and back from Mexico City were not packed so boarding was quick and easy and obviously there was enough carry-on baggage room. But I really cant complain too much because the price was great for a roundtrip."
Cons: "The flight to mexico was delayed about 30 minutes, it a late flight as it is but arriving at 11:30PM to mexico city is not a good thing."

Ticketing and check-in agents at American were rude and in terrible moods and very unhelpful.
Extremely clean plane. Friendly and professional service.
Everything was great except for before I boarded I was being told I was supposed to pay extra for a ticket that I already paid for so I was a little confused about that but when I showed them my fare and that my inbound was first class so should be my outbound they said OK sorry about that so I found that to be a little strange
Bumpy nearly the entire way.

Cons: "Every time I fly out of Scranton I’m delayed horribly this time it was so bad I’m stuck in a hotel for the night."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."
Pros: "Crew was great."

Cons: "i wasnt able to select a seat when I checked in. they couldn't give me a better seat before bording and the fact that Im the one approaching then to have a seat selection, no one called my name."
Pros: "Both flight were on time and the crews were delightful"
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."

Cons: "It was canceled and our trip has been delayed a day."
Pros: "On time if not early. Clean."
Cons: "Considering this was a domestic internal flight the crew member doing the pa’s did not speak English well enough for me to understand their content. Other crew members were clearly past retirement age that I seriously doubted their ability to assist anyone in an emergency. In fact it would be highly likely they would be a hinderence and I would have to assist them."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Left a tiny bit late but not a big deal really"
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"

Pros: "The agent at the desk helped seat us together after our disastrous 1st flight. Crew was friendly & upbeat, great service."
Cons: "Old plane No entertainment No place to plug in/charge devices."
Cons: "It was advertised that one can see entertainment through WIFi, but from my iPad, i can't connect to this WiFi. I tried several times until I just gave up."
Pros: "Quick short flight efficient, got from A to B for the same comfort for the price I paid so I’m happy"
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "Entertainment and creature comforts are great on these planes."
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Cons: "Felt sufforcation again and flight was delayed"
Cons: "No power outlets. A bag of chips in 1st class is pretty weak. Compared to Europe flights we can from, aircraft felt like 1960's Aeroflot."
Pros: "Was quick once we figured out what airline to check into."
Cons: "We arrived at the Finnair desk to find no one. Wasn't told to go to a American Airlines desk until standing in line for awhile. Could've miss s our flight due to this miscommunication. Also, could not check in online through Finnair, nor American. The whole process was very confusing."
Pros: "We boarded on time and arrived early. What more can ya ask for? Fairly easy ride. Free entertainment on board, movies and shows! Awesome."
Cons: "The speaker that the pilot used was static-y, hard to understand. No free wifi option. Rough landing."
Pros: "Courteous and professional crew"
Cons: "Delay taking off, due to technical issues with aircraft. Seat area is much too small for an adult."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Pros: "I must say the in-flight crew, 2 gents and 1 lady for the first class were so friendly and ..... Happy!!!!"
Cons: "It's cold in Ohio"
Our luggage wasn't checked through but no one told us until we had gone through the luggage area in Toronto. Then it took Air Canada 30 minutes to figure out IF we had to pick up our bags. Then another 40 to "escort" us back to pick up our bags. By which time we had missed our connection. The entire time, they tried to tell us it was our fault for forgetting to pick up the luggage. Oh, and when they rebooked us on the next flight...one of our suitcases was left behind in Toronto. Worst experience in air travel in a long time.
Pros: "Boarding process and customer service"
Cons: "Food could have been better and seating comfort"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could"
Cons: "Flight was super delayed with no explanation"
Cons: "i got to the airport 2.5 hours befor my flight to play it safe and waited at the check in for about a hour befor a air canada employe even showed up. vary poor service on the airlines part i will never fly with air canada again."
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "Nice clean plane! No luggage lost!"
Cons: "We could not check in 24 hours prior to our flight = we were unable to upgrade our seats = 6’4” husband with bakers cysts behind knees had more discomfort for 5 hours."
Pros: "the chairs was comfortable , staff was friendly and service in general was good"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "Entertainment unit and comfort were standard 5/5 for both"
Cons: "Boarding a massive 777 is difficult but some how other airlines do it smoother. Not sure how boarding 3 zones at once makes sense, which created a long que. Plus a delayed plane didn’t help the matter Unnecessary comments by one crew member while passengers were putting away their luggage were over heard and provided no value to the situations. Cup of noodles and a 3 tiny pieces of beef plate were provided for dinner which was very disappointing. While a typical egg breakfast and snack were also provided. Hot beverages were generally not served due to turbulence and water service during the 12hr flight was minimal."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment did not work. This 5 hour flight did not even offer a snack. Flight was late to leave, and then sat on the runway for 40 min on arrival. The Captain announced a "10 min wait". This was misleading."
Cons: "No food for an international flight"
Pros: "Crew very friendly. In-flight refreshments & Entertainment provided."
Cons: "Cramp seats."
Pros: "Air Canada has one of the best buy on board menu's of any North American carrier. They even allow you to purchase Business Class meals (subject to availability of course). Flying on the older 767-300ER also has more shoulder and leg room than some of Air Canada's newer configurations for the 787 and 777."
Cons: "Air Canada's boarding process is a bit frustrating. On American Airlines and United Flight attendants make announcements over the PA to (a) step out of the aisle to let people pass, and (b) place larger suitcases in the overhead and smaller bags under the seat. That way they try to ensure there is enough bin space to accommodate everyone. Passengers on Air Canada stuff everything in to the overhead bin and nothing under their seat, leaving little for those boarding after and delaying the flight because flight attendants are looking for bin space. If they were more pro-active, it would speed things up."
Cons: "The movie selection was not very good. No recent movies available. Also in the beginning, about half and hour, the entertainment system did not work."
Pros: "Not much. The entertainment choices were good, but other than that, things were mediocre at best."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Seating was crammed. No priority was honored (being silver members who always get boarding on Zone 2, we were put in zone 4. The food was mediocre to poor, and beer or wine were not complimentary, even though this was an intercontinental trip."
Pros: "Your customers are nicer than your staff."
Cons: "Firstly I will start with the lack of service we provided when trying to get seats together after checking in online. We rang and were told to try at the airport counter. Then at the airport counter we were told to try at the gate and then at the gate when I went to ask I was told to go get both tickets before they told us that there was no 2 seats together anyway rather than looking first. All whilst explaining this was our honeymoon and we would really like to sit together as husband and wife. Then once we boarded the guy sitting next to me was happy to swap seats with my wife as he had back problems and had asked for an aisle seat but was denied. Finally we are underway and I find that my entertainment touch screen doesn't work so even though it is one i can't select anything to watch. Plus to top it off the seat arm rest was broken. Obviously with a fairly full flight with no 2 seats together their wasn't much that could be done immediately but where is the maintenance and actual physical plane quality? Do your engineers or staff not check things? Overall dispite this being our national carrier I am ashamed to claim that. Many of our overseas visitors for the wedding from Australia and Europe also had similar complaints."
Cons: "Previous flight got delayed and Air Canada did everything possible to prevent me from taking my first available connecting flight. They always prefer that we wait!"
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding on this flight."
Cons: "We were delayed on boarding, they changed the gate number a number of times... it was all very disorganized. Both flights to and from LAX were delayed hours so they had to give us a voucher for 15% off our next flight."
Pros: "The flight crew, the price and the bags arrived."
Cons: "While the flight crew was great, the rest of the employees on the Toronto side were awful. Our plane was delayed from Dublin so most of the plane missed their connecting flight. Once off the plane they only had 2 people working rebooking and 2 working bag issues even though there was plenty employees around. After an incredibly long line, the gate agent was very rude. He barely acknowledged me, wouldn't look at me and just shoved my new ticket at me and said next. I tried to talk to another while waiting an extra 4hrs for my next flight and all she did was shove a business card with numbers and said if I had a problem to call one of those numbers and then rolled her eyes and started talking to her friends again. I saw another couple from my flight being passed around and getting rude treatment as well. Another I talked to said they will never fly Air Canada again. I know it wasn't their fault our flight was late but a little compassion and good customer service goes a long way. I had to spend $15 on dinner that I wouldn't if I had made my flight but they gave another couple from my flight $10 vouchers for food. So inconsistent! I also paid $100 extra on my ticket to sit closer to the front of the plane since I knew I had a short layover (which didn't make a difference) but they just gave the same seat to the girl next to me for the same reason. When I asked for a refund on the seat cost they just blew me off. To sum it up, the flight crew was great and very friendly but all the ground employees were awful and really need to improve on their customer service skills."
Pros: "put us up in decent hotels gave food vouchers the crew didn't do anything to make it horrible Large selection of movies/tv on board comfiest seats out of all the major airlines I've flown"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed bc of mechanical problems, and then eventually cancelled. They rebooked everyone on new flights, but it took an extra stop in Toronto before getting us to Montreal. Once it was rebooked for the morning, it took off a little late. Plus the pretzels they gave us were stale. This was the first of two flights I took this trip that had mechanical issues, so they obviously need to fix their planes better or get new ones, because two Air Canada flights in one day that have mechanical problems leaves me worried that the planes aren't in optimal condition. It took me over 24 hours to get from Tucson, AZ to Montreal, Canada when normal travel takes less than 8 hours including layovers."
Pros: "The people at the front desk in gander were great"
Cons: "There were delayed at every stop. I had a 9 hour delay because the flight attendant had food poisoning. How was there not a replacement?"
Cons: "Several hours late due to repairs, despite the plane originating from Air Canada's hub. Seems they should have had a spare available to not delay us the several hours that they did. As I live 2 hours from the airport, it was not until I got there to check in that I was aware of the delay."
Pros: "That at least, the plane eventually did take off and landed safely."
Cons: "Fly time each way from NY to Toronto is approx an hour but they added an extra hour of a delay going and and an hour and a half delay further on the flight back home."
Pros: "Service was kind."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for over an hour before take-off and were therefore late arriving in Toronto. Economy seats were cramped, as expected, and there were children screaming most of the flight. Food was pretty awful."
Pros: "Onboard attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "No apology for lateness, flight boarded late, took off 40 min late, arrived 35 minutes late but we sat at gate waiting for someone to open it ?!, then another 15 min before bags started to unload Ridiculous but indicative of airlines You are not their valued guest or even their customer, you are a problem that needs to be solved and are consequently met with preloaded annoyance and a readiness to dismiss, placate at the best of times but definitely not please, impress, sympathize or satisfy. There is no evidence that it's even in their lexicon- not a part of their recruitment or selection process or training, ever! They're main focus and only positivity is saved for themselves. There may be a long line of concerned and anxious travelers but their priority is getting coffees for the battle ahead! They break their focused indifference only for each other and enthusiastically leave their post to satisfy each other's needs and attention. This has got to change! Why do we put up with such awful service for which we are the paying customer? Why are we, their customers, not valued? This airline makes record profits, provides less, charges for everything and increasingly delivers bad service, sometimes offensively bad! It doesn't cost more to hire a customer centric pleasant person, or incorporate guest experience into training or at the very least be friendly and smile! What if an airline just did that?! They'd differentiate themselves and develop a positive customer centered culture. Don't we deserve that, at the very least?!"
Pros: "It was okay, but I feel no one really cares anymore it is just a Job....... on my flight from Canada to Florida on Feb 8 th it was a horrible experience. We were almost 4 hours late due to no crew or pilots. This is my last time flying with Air Canada. Way to much stress for people who have so much stress in there everyday lives. This should be a no stress way to fly. Just sayin"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Forcing us to check carry on bags, and not very courteous about it."
Cons: "Overall everything was great, but they lost our luggage going to our destination and coming back."
Pros: "Everything was great...but there was a medical issue on board and it would be good to hear that the guy who got 'ill' is ok and that it was nothing serious that anyone else could have contracted from him. Paramedics boarded the plane when we landed, I assume it's nothing serious but would be nice to hear from air Canada to confirm. Other than this unfortunate event ... everything was great starting with the staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "We were very unhappy that the flight was delayed by 35 minutes in Munich causing us to miss our connecting flight by 15 minutes… We only had an hour to get through customs and get to our next flight that should've been accounted for by kayak"
Cons: "Airline oversold seats for my son's flight -- even though I bought my ticket back in April for a flight in November. This is absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "It's on time"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No leg room, no snack for a 5+ hour flight, a bit messy, no entertainment, not too comfortable"
Pros: "Video monitor did not work on ATL YYZ leg"
Pros: "Service on the flight is always good and the transfer in Toronto was seamless."
Cons: "The departure area in Boston is dreadful. no room and no amenities. Straight out of the 60's."
Pros: "The staff were friendly even though the flight was completely full"
Pros: "Apart from food there was nothing great about the flight"
Cons: "The staff is the worst, the air hostesses are rude and treat you bad. The service is very poor."
Pros: "Air Canada is a wonderful airline for the price!! Seats are comfy staff is excellent. Food is decent."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but what do you expect it's on a airplane."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."
Cons: "Every air Canada flight I had on this trip had horrible turbulence and rough landings. The turbulence may or may not be the pilot's fault, but the landings are probably the pilot's fault. Also, the in-flight movie selection was horrible, probably due to the fact that they had so many Canadian films (which apparently is required in Canada)."
Pros: "I liked how you had movies to watch although they were outdated. The bathrooms were okay."
Cons: "You have to download an entertainment app and if no one tells you to then you are screwed. The food was awful, like baby food for adults. The chairs need to be able to move back more. The flight delays are just wrong."
Cons: "Their choice of movies are exactly the same as my first flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver. Does it offer the same things for the other longer flights too? This is outrageous: you have to pay for the headphone."
Cons: "Services. Not even water is served during 5 hours flight from Toronto to Seattle. 6 -8 hours of delay with no advanced notice."
Cons: "The food was the worst. Did not feel it was even edible. For an 11 hour international flight there were zero amenities. If you wanted to watch a movie, you had to pay $10 per person for an iPad. You could not even use your own & link to their wifi unless you are in their earned points program."
Pros: "People were nice wHen airline made them available to us. But business lounge, special services, and other services were not available in Toronto when we wanted them."
Cons: "Connecting flight was repeatedly delayed. Then finally cancelled because no crew was provided by the airline. Since this was only announced so late - after midnight - hotel rooms were no longer available we had to try to sleep on the floor in the departure hall. Maybe ok for 20 year old travelers. Not for 75 year olds like me who paid business class fare so as to hopefully avoid some of the rigors of travel. I managed to catch up on some sleep the next day in the business lounge while eating for my rescheduled connection. Still it has taken an additional period to physically recover from this experience."
Cons: "Worst customer service. They closed the check in line as we stood there and than asked us to book another 3000$ flight!"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment and service was great. The Toronto airport waiting area was also good."
Cons: "The luggage drop line was terrible. Only few stations were open and they worked incredibly slow. At the Toronto airport, we were made to fill up customs forms even though we were set for international transfers. None of the questions on the form made any sense since we were not entering Canada but rather leaving for other international destinations. Because of this formality, we had to pass another line which took another 30 minutes. Furthermore, they denied me at the counter because my original check in crew was unable to print my second boarding pass for some technical reason. But, there was noone at the customer service desk to print a boarding pass for me. I had to wait another twenty minutes just for this! All of this happened in a "neverland" section of the airport that didn't even have any restrooms! This could really turn into a nightmare scenario."
Pros: "Things were very good. Staff was freindly."
Cons: "The internet wasn't working but not a problem for a 1 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was delayed three times, gate constantly changing too. Money even replaced croissants/pastries in the Vancouver business lounge with toast to save money; the only hot breakfast now at 9.30 is a vat of porridge."
Cons: "The plane itself was in good condition, and the crew were capable and pleasant. The in-air experience was much better than the on-the-ground experience."
