Too many delays from start to finish of the trip
Pros: "It is a no frills airline. Cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "This was an older plane with no upgrades including no Internet and the very small poor quality Monitors in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. The seats were very uncomfortable. The transfer in Vancouver after customs involved going outside in the cold to and from the bus. There was no warning. The customs area red jacketed help personnel told us that it was just as fast to go throught the general customs are instead of using our Nexus cards and this turned out to take forever. So very disappointing."
Cons: "Better communication at all levels. Remember that the overall strength of a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and this trip had many weak links for us making it a challenge."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Crew was great . Seats not so much,"
Cons: "Maybe a movie for everyone."
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"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Hard landing,cramped seats"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was the first time in 37 years that I have flown so i had a little motion sickness but that has nothing to do with your crew or airline. This experience was very good thank you"
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost 4 hours, which we got notified over 12 hours prior departure time. Offer different flight options, or maybe switching the airline without an extra fee. Compensation!"
Pros: "Seats comfy, crew excellent"
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seat was ok. A little cramped."
Cons: "Super slow boarding and entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then at the gate boarding didn’t start till 10 mins before take off. Took off almost an hour after the delayed take off time."
Pros: "This is a no frills flight that does not offer food or entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are always uncomfortable as it is a smallplane"
Pros: "Check in was quick and easy. Boarding and flight was right on time!"
Pros: "I had an unexpected upgrading to a premium seat, that was great for food, wine, & comfort."
Cons: "It was cold, I wish they offered blankets. We also had a delay once we landed, watched another plane come in & disembark while we waited. And there was a huge luggage delay of 45 minutes while we all waited at the carousel for our bags. I’ve never had to wait that long before."
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: "Sensible ticket price"
Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was orderly, I got a window seat."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable (very little leg and arm room, chairs didn't recline at all), WiFi was unavailable."
Pros: "Great service when checking in. Flight on time and comfortable."
Pros: "I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong. They said it will board at x hour and flight Mie is 4 hrs 20minutes. That makes one think departure plus flight time equals arrival. NO ONE MENTIONED OVE 1 hour taxi time. Getting in four hours late, BTW the rain delay was not really accurate. There was no rain until after we were due to depart! Not enough fuel as loaded so after circling the had to land inYYZ ZTO REFUEL. Seats were uncomfortable, with hard spots like springs that did not give.I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong.

Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."
Pros: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Pros: "Fairly smooth itinerary. Clean plane and friendly workers. Cramped seats, no entertainment system, three pretzel snack and not enough overhead space with everyone trying to cram too many personal items onboard makes for a frustrating experience. Not enough competition amongst Canadian operators. Expensive flight for such a short trip yet still a nickel and dime operation. Hopefully service will improve."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "staff was unfriendly. no options for entertainment that don't cost. no blankets to keep warm. i understand airlines need to make money, but they're making it much less enjoyable. on the upside, my flight down had incredible staff who treated me and my mother very well. sometimes, people make all the difference ;)"
Cons: "No headsets Ran out of several of the food items -- I was in row 10 and they served from the front.... A bit disorganized boarding process but it was Mexico ... Comfort? The seats are way too crowded, and the guy in front of me put his seat all the way back so it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The washrooms had no water from their taps"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride, wished it was cancelled. I was motion sick the entire ride, and no water was provided until four hours in, and while I understand it was due to turbulence, perhaps if it is too bumpy to serve water for the first four hours we should not be flying at all. Also very little food is provided for a 5.5 hour trip, two biscuits is not sufficient and as we landed near midnight there are not many options to acquire quick food either."
Pros: "The flight and the seating was comfortable. Food served was fine too."
Cons: "Well, they mixed up my check-in luggage during transit. As a result it got delayed and I had to spend the night without it. Although, I was informed about this miss when I landed in Vancouver, the team did not seem to feel particularly bad about it. Also, the process of getting reimbursed for the predefined expenditure allowance needs to be more efficient. Ideally, in such cases, the airlines should not only refund the check-in fee, but also provide a prepaid card to make any urgent purchases. Their current process requires one to bear the expenses initially, scan/click and send the original receipts and await a response from their baggage team. I am waiting to hear back from them on my submission."
Pros: "I liked the stewardess. She was very friendly and funny. I was booked for row 2 isle seat, first on first off.. No one else with me , had the row to myself. Comfortable seats. It was the Plus seats."
Cons: "No entertainment on board. You had to have already down loaded West Jets app. Didn't know that. Last time I flew WJ there was intertanment. I asked before I left Canada if there was in flight duty free. From LAX to YVR. I was told yes. So didn't purchase any. Only to find out, a big fat no. Haven't for quit awhile.Super. Landed at YVR, went to WJ to find out about luggage. Told me I have to get a hold of Qantas. They had nothing to do with it. Went to Qantas was sent to a place that was closed. Two days later got a call from WJ asking why I didn't pick up my luggage. I told him the story. He kept saying why didn't I go to them. Because I was told it was Qantases fault. Got luggage 2 days later, damaged. I'm thinking maybe the case fell off the conveyor belt while loading in Melbourne ."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Everything mostly went smoothly."
Cons: "Cannot use the in-flight entertainment system due to not having the WestJet app. Not able to download the app in flight. WestJet should at least provide a $0.99 internet option for 5 minutes, or allow free internet access to the App store for a few minutes to download the WestJet app."
Pros: "We took off, we flew, we landed and walked away."
Cons: "5hrs and 9min flight time. Add boarding and alighting at the other end - adds up to over 6 hours travel time. WestJet will supply you with a coffee or tea and a cookie, pretzel or cheese stick packet. Wow! You get to watch fair selection of movies etc on your own phone or tablet - IF you have downloaded the app BEFORE you leave the terminal.Wow! If you need to wait for the bathroom the stewardess tells you to wait in the aisle behind row 3... really? So I can't just stand here in the galley and wait... no sir, behind row 3. Best advice - fly Air Canada - these guys do not deserve your money!"
Cons: "The pilot on the Honolulu flight to Vancouver left some documents at the hotel and he had to go back to get them therefore delaying our flight to vancouver. This caused a lot of passengers connection flights delayed and rebooked to another flight later on that day. No apologies or compensation of time wasted was given. Food vouchers would have been nice. The new boarding passes provided also pushed most of us passengers back to the last seats at the back of the plane.. which was a very uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding"
Cons: "No tv screen"
Pros: "Good flight, got in early"
Cons: "Ticketing in Kauai was extremely slow. Was worried some psssenegers wouldn’t make it into the flight from how slow it was."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Friendly relaxed crew. Overall organized and efficient."
Cons: "Both flights were late"
Pros: "Haven't flown Westjet in years. Don't know why but I don't have sore kneecaps, was served great coffee, the stewards always smiled and had funny things to say, and the gate keepers were happy and honest. I'm going to be a frequent flyer now for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like....um....nope. no complaints"
Cons: "Staff was impatient and snappy when telling passengers to do something the first time. Smiles were forced and didn't seem genuine. Otherwise the flight arrived safely and early."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
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."
Pros: "Direct flight from my hometown of Palm Springs Ca to Vancouver Canada"
Cons: "Left late and I arrived 35 min late had to go through customs and didn't make it from international to domestic. Rebooked a flight 3 hours later for $75."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Pros: "Amazing crew who made us feel very comfortable as we traveled with our 9month old daughter. Westjet stands out because of their commitment to service"
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.
I lost a luggage on the plane and auromexico has not been helpful
Cons: "No veg option on overnight flight No orders of special meal online Keep changing gate Had to put bag up when fit under seat"
Cons: "Disaster of a flight - two hours late and blew connections in Mexico City for 11 people in our group."
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: "AeroMexico offered a great service!"
Cons: "My baggage got destroyed and they did not wanted to refund it. (I am not sure if it was the correct flight). I submitted a claim but thet rejected it."
Pros: "Crew members gave out extra snacks toward the end of the flight."
Pros: "Crew were very kind. Seat space from BOG-MEX not so good"
Cons: "Food could be a little better."
Pros: "Nothing at all, we were left in Mexico with an under 2 years old boy. Reason, apparently we were late but we were not and simply Aeromexico probably oversold tickets and put others in our seats"
Cons: "To resolve our problem. Supervisor was so disrespectful and treated us so badly we had to get ao mad at them so we could get at least a hotel to spend 17 hours until our next flight which they wanted to provide"
Cons: "Entertainment or WiFi being available"
Cons: "Entertainment selection was mediocre."
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."
Cons: "Flight delayed. They were moving us from door to door. My connecting flight was delayed too. The flight was supposed to leave at 1am when ended up leaving and hour past that plus a lot of children were traveling in that flight and I don’t think it was okay to be moving all these families around from door to door. It was 2am this children needed to be sleeping on Thebes plane that was supposed to leave at 1am. Really disappointed."
Cons: "When you have a family emergency the last thing you ever want to hear is that you are "completely full and you will need to wait until the next available flight". This ticket was purchased last minute due to an unexpected death in the family so it was the only option we had to get my uncle to LA asap in order to be with the family during such tragedy. We even bought the insurance on the flight to assure nothing went wrong but yet he was still left behind hours to wait for another flight and see IF THAT ONE had room. How is this even possible? Why would you even let us book if there was no room and why was he the one to be asked to stay behind? Is it because it was booked though you? because it was a third party booking and not direct? If so then it's not even worth the few dollars we saved if it means the flight will be unreliable and the insurance means absolutely nothing through you guys. Ultimately, truly disappointing and I know that we can not depend on booking this way again if in your policy it states this ist ok to do and not even compensate one bit for making your travelers go though this."
Pros: "The cabin was kept quiet, dark and orderly for the night flight."
Cons: "Same as above. The seat in economy is truly an endurance test. No way to go to sleep."
Pros: "The meals and flights attendance were great"
Cons: "The AC on flight 748 for some reason it wasn't cold enough. No entertainment on the seat. Maybe is older air plane."
Pros: "Very comfortable. Good service in general."
Cons: "Limited snacks available throughout the flight, only nuts."
Pros: "COmfortable seats and great staff. Food was the most bland that I have experience on Aeromexico but they all can't be home runs."
Cons: "Entertainment system had malfunction and was down for half the flight. Leaving me halfway through a film (pet peeve)."
Cons: "No personal entertainment. The plane was too old. No previously allowed to choose seat."
Pros: "Love the comfort and room of the seats. A plus to have charger station in your seat"
Cons: "Staff not so friendly. Not giving us enough attention"
Pros: "Was all good even saw a couple get in the toilet for the mile high club!"
Pros: "Flight had no major inconveniences or mishaps."
Cons: "Paid $150 more for AM Plus. Not worth it."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful. They gave us food which I was not expecting. They had an in-flight movie as well which was unexpected."
Pros: "huatulco airport is small and easy to navigate. only needed to arrive 50 mins before departure even with luggage. the flight was comfortable and less than an hour with a complimentary drink (soft drinks, coffee/tea, alcohol)."
Pros: "Mileage was credited to my account of SKY TEAM immediately. Many movies are available."
Cons: "The shelf between two seats were not clean. I asked a young steward to clean the shelf. He cleaned it later."
Pros: "Fast boarding, decent seat space (AM+), fast, courteous staff"
Cons: "I paid $14USD for internet assuming the USB charging ports worked, only to find that they did not, getting only 15 minutes of my 6 hour flight!"
Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
Pros: "Overall planes were ontime Staff pleasant. Tv entertainment was certainly adequate"
Cons: "Food was terrible Both trips a bun with mystery meat and cheese And a pudding on the side My last overnight trip my seat didn’t recline making sleeping almost impossible"
Cons: "Delayed hours, both on my flight to Managua and from Managua. Going through customs and having to pick up your luggage and the go back through security is annoying. What do they think has changed since the last security check? The seats are small if you have long legs. The food is not good, but I guess what airline's is?"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, lots of movies and kids shows to choose from on the plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connecting flights, very little communication about delays etc. Terrible turbulence for 3 hours, food was not good at all. Don’t eat breakfast"
Cons: "I bought a Business fly, they change the aircraft, no motive in advance. And they del did not offer nothing. Moreover, they try to hide it and denide, to see if you do not react."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The screen at my seat did not work. Nobody told me why or mentioned it to me. While I was sleeping a flight attendant took away my tray of food before I was finishing eating."
Cons: "They would not let me board the plan even though I made 30 minutes early. Our connecting flight was late. My bags made the flight and I wasn't allowed on."
Cons: "I couldn't watch movies so I asked flight attendant she said " watch next screen ". But there was someone sitting! How can I do that!!! They didn't say sorry"
Pros: "They gave me an emergency row seat and being tall that's great, the food was pretty good and we got free beer."
Cons: "Boarding took along time."
Cons: "Stated "free wifi" on plane by the door entrance. But once seated and trying to log in. You have to pay. So it is not "free" In my opinion that sigh is false advertising."
Pros: "This company is obviously dedicated to providing a quality product."
Pros: "Inside the plane the food (COLD SANDWICH) has a horrible and monotonous taste . Outside the plane the service is poor. You meet aggressive people without any clue of courtesy. I saw disable passenger without any attendance when wheelchair was requested.They don't have any idea that you are part of a business industry with many competitors. I will never recommend in my community to use your services. You are the worse of the third world."
Cons: "I experience an incident that affected emotionally my family. One hour after depart from Mexico City, the fly attendance announce that we need to land in Guadalajara for safety/security reason. You removed a youth passenger without any strong and fair reason, because he was unlucky this day: He was accommodated together with 2 members of a middle east family that was logically to be filled by the 3. he touch friendly the kid near him and his father that was in different place??? react negative against this normal gesture of the youth passenger. Why you didn't put the entire family together from the beginning?"
Pros: "crew, entertainment and food."
Cons: "I paid too much money for my luggage (one suitcase) without any explanation at the moment. The lady sent me to paid while she weighted my suitcase. Later, I saw a label that said overweight. (I could take stuff out of it if I knew. I could safe $400 pesos)"
Cons: "Flight left almost an hour late."
Pros: "Help from attendants"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Friendly crew and smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late, very simple tasteless food with little choices of beer that was not cold."
Pros: "punctuality, crew, both at the airport and on the plane"
Cons: "Nothing, it was really good."
Cons: "Need confirmation number on calendar to help with check in"
Cons: "Proceso de check in no es de lo mejor, después no tiene servicio de entrenimientos, pero ofrece un refrigerio que otras compañías aéreas no brindan."
Pros: "The flight was ok, but it was delayed for long time :("
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 2 hours."
Pros: "Bought two tickets weeks in advance but for some reason was put on Standby, was almost not allowed on my flight. Caused a high degree of stress."
Cons: "Staff gave no explanation as to why I was put on Standby even with Elite Plus status. When I called the airline they said I shouldn't be on Standby."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time. Cockpit crew did amazing job landing in windy conditions. Thanks to all"
