No water/drinks provided during the flight
We , of course, had no entertainment. Good trip.
Pros: "Check in and crew were friendly and helpful. Was in first class so of course was comfortable. Deplaning was quick and efficient."
Cons: "This flight required taking a shuttle from the gate to an offsite location. The distance to the offside was rather far and we were packed in a shuttle. We had to wait for two more shuttles for passengers that were in delayed connections. Additionally, someone apparently filled the plane with too much fuel, throwing off the balance of the plane and we had to wait for some of the fuel to be removed. During this wait, in first class we were only offered orange juice or coffee. I realize it was a very short flight, but a snack might have been a good idea."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They were careless with our suitcases. When we got to Vancouver, we were missing wheels on our suitcases. 2 wheels on my husband's and 1 on mine. It made it horrible to pull the suitcases."
Cons: "Great Boarding staff"
Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."
Pros: "Crazy fast lines at check in. Great space in the plane. Super nice staff."
Cons: "Keep it up!!! Great job!!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No drink service - not even water."
Pros: "Seats on Alaska seem larger to me. The star aligned and we were able to take off a solid 10 minutes early (which helped us arrive early)."
Cons: "If you don't pre-download their entertainment app you have to pay $10 to rent a tablet."
Pros: "Chargers at the seat, in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The taxi and wait to take off, but not necessarily the airline’s fault"
Pros: "Fruit and cheese"
Cons: "Could use more food variety eg single items like Pringle."
Pros: "Movie selection and food"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew did their best to make a bad situation better. Alaska Air a very decent company and usually have good flights with them. They offered me a free cocktail after a family with 3 little kids took my seat to sit together. A cocktail at 9:55am doesn’t really appeal to me however. It was a 2 ½ hour flight so I could grin and bear the discomforts. Everything else went great ...baggage arrived an was in the carousel quickly although the $25 baggage fee slap is annoying on an already over priced flight. I still love Alaska"
Cons: "I am 6’2" and a difficult time with comfort in standard airline seats. Today’s flight with the family taking my assigned seat put me in the last row against the rear wall. Super scrunched for me then to have a very large couple flying non-revenue squash in next to me made it just that much more uncomfortable. I wish if you have kids you would go the extra mile and pre-pick seats like he rest of us .... not a hater people just like courtesy is all."
Cons: "No tv for my child"
Pros: "Arrived on time and in one piece"
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed a flight that was short and sweet."
Cons: "Small cabin, little rougher ride, and small meal choices but understandable with cut backs."
Pros: "Always like Alaska flights"
Pros: "Nothing. Zero. You treated me so poorly. I will never use you again. Absolutely the worst experience of my life."
Cons: "Customer service. Customer service. Custoner service."
Pros: "Cheap air fares"
Cons: "Could not use airline websites to select seats due to using a third party agent like kayak. Had to call both Alaska Air and Air Canada before I could secure seats."
Pros: "Punctual, professional and comfortable. This airline has never disappointed me. I appreciate the seat availability and the staff are always so very pleasant. Well done."
Cons: "My return flight has a child seated behind me. Not great."
Pros: "We got lucky. Our next leg turned out to be on the same airplane. So we were already at the gate for the next flight. Another piece of luck was that the airplane was not full, so my wife and I had a row of 3 seats to ourselves."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and made our infants first flight smooth and memorable. Thank you!"
Pros: "In Denver, the boarding process was well organized and directed by clear announcements and boarding lanes."
Cons: "In Seattle, the boarding process was chaotic and mismanaged. The ground staff gave confusing and ambiguous instructions that resulted in everyone forming a large, disorganized throng in front of the gate agent. It was as if they said "everyone get on the plane immediately, and we are only taking the first 30 people"."
Pros: "Outlets in the planes!!!"
Cons: "Delay on one flight"
Pros: "The plane arrived on time and we even landed a bit early to our destination! The crew was very friendly and helpful!!"
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: "Everyone is very friendly!"
Pros: "The flight crew did a great job."
Cons: "a bit crowded but that's the norm it seems."
Cons: "Departure happened when we were supposed to arrive"
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: "Early areival"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were really worn. Not very comfortable at all."
Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled!"
Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."
Pros: "My first time on Alaska. I usually fly JetBlue or Virgin. They had great entertainment options (you have to use your laptop or cellphone) and free wifi for messaging. They staff were especially accommodating and hospitable."
Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."
Cons: "Again, the size of the plane, interior."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "The staff at my connection in Seattle were not the friendliest."
Pros: "easy check in. (emergency seat with no extra cost) kind staff. board on time. but not declined seat, new plane with two power outlet."
Pros: "Quick and easy experiences at the check-in counter, on-time flight boarding and departure, very clean planes, extremely helpful and thoughtful crew on board despite my husband and I walking around the entire flight calming our 7 month old girls, and quick luggage retrieval upon arrival at Newark. A great first experience with Alaska Air which I hope we can flight with again in the future!"
Pros: "I checked in two guitars, both guitars did not reach LAX. I waited at baggage claim for hours. Upon arriving in Nashville in the early morning, I was pleased to see they were waiting for me in baggage claim."
Cons: "I was told that I had to retrieve my baggage in LAX and carry them through security because the airline would not do that for me."
Pros: "Gina at Seattle Customer Service managed to get my on a flight back to my original Oregon location when it became evident that they couldn't get me to San Francisco as booked and I missed my appointments there."
Cons: "I never made it to San Francisco. After starting in Eugene they sent me to Seattle instead of Portland where I was way-laid for 5 and 1/2 hours Alaska posted a crew based delay on my flight to PDX and booked me on a flight an hour later to Seattle where I was going to have a 3 hour layover. The connecting flight was then delayed another 2 and 1/2 hours. I missed both my appointments in San Francisco and never made it to SFO. Also, they never sent me an SMS or email alert to the changes. The agent also had me wait at the wrong gate in Eugene. And they couldn't get me on any other flights to my original destination. I will reschedule my appointments in San Francisco and I will definitely be taking American Airlines or United Airlines."
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Pros: "Easy flight. No issues."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "Very smooth landing"
Flight attendants were excellent.
Cons: "Assigning seats at check in? Why was that a thing? Also why did we have to wait for almost an hour once we landed to be given a gate for us to unload? So stupid the whole thing."
Pros: "we could not get a seat until we arrived at the airport."
Pros: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Cons: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Cons: "Food. Phone charging at seat, entertainment screen."
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was amazing this round I got good seats"
Cons: "Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat, it was a very good experience overall."
Cons: "Unfortunately had flights delayed which forced me to arrive home much later than originally planned."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Delta does not transfer your luggage in Canada even if they say they do. It will not make it to your final destination"
Cons: "The flight attendants weee rude, and no bar service"
Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"
Cons: "so organais tritment so good everiding lovet"
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Very hot ride"
Pros: "After flight was cancelled, rebooking was easy and quick on the app."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. flight attendants were grumpy. One of the tightest seats I've flown in economy. No room in overheads so I had to stuff my winter coat between my legs with my backpack under the seat in front of me. Was basically wedged into the seat with my stuff."
Pros: "it was easy to navigate ."
Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."
Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats Oddly shaped overhead bins, unable to put standard sized bags overhead, meanwhile they fit in planes of other major airline companies such as American Airlines. No food options, only sweet biscuit which contains soy and milk."
Cons: "The flight was delay for 3 hours and they only give us chips and water. They didn't explain well what was the problem. The plane was dirty inside and the seats werent comfortable at all, the plane was making weird noises. There is no window in the 11A Window Seat. Really really bad service at all."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."
Pros: "Clean plan and efficient boarding procedure."
Cons: "Horrible delay. Took off almost two hours post originally scheduled time."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Pros: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."
Cons: "I could not check in on the kiosk and I had to go to two agents before they could find my reservation. The lines were extremely long and the customer service was poor."
Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
Pros: "The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport."
Cons: "Delayed for 5.5 hours."
Flight attendants were great! Seats were a bit small.
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I had to take a bus from my gate to the plane from the new D21-26 gates."
Pros: "The crew were awesome! Was comfortable"
Cons: "The USB ports were not charging"
Cons: "Great so far! Thnks"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or kind - acted burnt out and burdened"
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane and rather than taking off at 6 as planned we didn't leave until 8am!!! Making us 2.5hrs late for our wedding in Cancun."
Pros: "Departing & arriving at MSP T2"
Cons: "Paying extra for seats, Personal item carried on having to be stowed under the seat when there is a ton of overhead bin space available, crappy choices for on-board food purchase, no onboard entertainment (other than “renting” a device), & flight attendants that don’t seem to like their job."
Pros: "Great crew, easy flight no turbulance easy boarding."
Cons: "Probably the same as everyone but more leg room would have been great. Sore on landing"
Pros: "We got here."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever"
Cons: "The flight down from msp was an hour late, flight from phx to msp was 1 1/2 hours late taking off. New charges for carry ons and luggage are unreal! Rip offs! Going to find a different airline!"
Pros: "We departed on time and arrived early. The flight crew was friendly, attentive and communicative. Everything from the boarding process to deplaning ran smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "30 minutes late, that time was spent sitting in my uncomfortable seat onboard at the origin airport. No free snack and one drink - discount airline norm anymore. Oddly very hot on the plane despite the normal vents."
Cons: "It took 45 min for our bags to come out"
Pros: "Nice stewardesses - very polite and helpful"
Cons: "When I checked in online the day before, I was only given seats that I had to pay an additional charge! I had already paid for my tickets when I booked the flight. This is ridiculous to check in and be expected to pay an additional charge just to get a seat! No snacks unless you pay for them - also ridiculous."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable for a three hour flight."
Cons: "I was traveling with a lap infant and the flight was more than half empty. The middle seat was empty next to me but the gate agents still would not allow me to bring my FAA approved carseat on board because I had not purchased a seat. Carseats make life so much easier for parents traveling with infants. Additionally it is safer for the infant. Finally, its better for fellow passengers because infants in their carseat can be better pacified while flying. Many other airlines allow carseats carried on when their flights aren't full (for free) and this is why I won't be flying Sun Country again."
Cons: "Waiting almost two hours for agents for boarding to appear!!"
Pros: "And the people who serve the cookies are nice!"
Pros: "The flight staff was great!"
Pros: "Pleasant staff Complimentary drinks Arrived early"
Cons: "Plane seemed old No room in seat when person ahead reclined"
Pros: "5+ hours Minneapolis to Anchorage was great"
Cons: "Seats a bit small"
Pros: "More friendly cabin crew a must for sustaining the airlines business.!!!"
Cons: "The toilets needs to be cleaned at more freqfrequency."
Cons: "We were in the last group to board and were forced to check our bags (with one other person), as the gate agent claimed there was not any remaining overheard storage space. Not only were there several spots for bags once we got on the plane, the overhead bins directly above our seats were practically empty. I don't mind cooperating when these things happen, but it's extremely frustrating when they happen completely unnecessarily."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "Good budget-friendly airline through MSP. Overall good experience and would fly with them again given the opportunity."
Cons: "Flight crew wasn't the most personable I've experienced."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "I found it absolutely ludicrous that me and the person I was traveling with weren't able to upgrade to 1st class at the gate for a reduced price. We boarded, departed and the seats still weren't filled. So you're telling me you would rather have $0 from 2 $129 upgrades instead of $150 from 2 $75 upgrades. Sun Country must be a non-profit."
Pros: "Price was the lowest air fare at the time"
Cons: "Old plane, no USB or outlets for charging devices,"
Pros: "Flew first class because it was a 6 hour flight. The flight attendants were not helpful and didn't pickup trash, empty cups etc from anyone in the first class cabin. Never made eye contact to see if anything else was needed. Disappointing service."
Pros: "Flew down Tuesday and back Wednesday - all flights were on time and everything went smooth."
Pros: "Ticket agents were fabulous, bulkhead seats perfect for my husband who has an injured leg, crew helpful and efficient"
Cons: "Had a neighbor who talked A LOT! And three crying babies on the plane. Nothing you could do, but it was far from relaxing!"
Pros: "We arrived in Manila this morning April 11 from Minneapolis and we didn't get our luggage up to this time, they said that Suncountry didn't check in our luggage to China Airlines which is our connecting flight to Taipei. This is unacceptable to me, all our clothes and gifts are there, now we still don't know when will our luggage arrive."
Cons: "Arrived at check in at 6:00 for a 6:40 flight, was told it was too late to check in and board so I did not get on the flight! There was no other Sun Country flight until the next day and there was no attempt made to accommodate the fact that I had to get back to D.C that night.... and I was not offered any partial credit for the ticket! I realize I should've arrived much earlier but I did try to check in online prior to arriving at the airport however their online check in process only gave me the option of paying an additional $15 fee to choose my seat, which I did not think I should have had to since I'd already paid for the flight and didn't care where I sat. I ended up buying a one way FULL PRICE ticket on another airline and it took less than 5 minutes to go through security and arrive at the gate by 6:25"
Pros: "Everything was great flight"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me with an infant was forced to wait from 9am until the 1135 pm flight because he was in traffic and only checked in 35 minutes early. No exceptions for a small baby. Sad!"
Pros: "The pleasant, helpful Sun Country employees - curbside check-in, gate agents, flight attendants - Thank You! Being able to check a bag, free of charge, at the gate. My window seat with an empty seat next to me :)"
Cons: "The screaming, crying kids on my flight to Seattle (not the airline's fault...) My middle seat on aforementioned flight."
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "No ashtrays."
Pros: "Good fare, on time, courteous crew."
Cons: "The flight was an hour-and-a-half delayed, which meant a 12:30 a.m. arrival into Minneapolis, the seats are uncomfortable (even the $25-extra exit row seat I paid for), and they don't even serve peanuts or any kind of minimal snack, not even when they're an hour and a half late!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "I have never been so cold on a flight. I thought I was going to loose feeling in my feet. I had to put on socks and stuff my feet in my carry on under the seat in front of me. I had to warm up my shoes between my legs before putting them on to disembark."
Pros: "I like how quickly we can get from point A to B."
Cons: "I HATE the pay for your seat stuff. I HATE the fact that you cannot choose your seat when you have physical difficulties like back trouble. I HATE that you seat obese people in the seats. Your flight attendants are pretty stoic."
Pros: "I liked the time and direct flight from MSP to Boston."
Cons: "From the time we were waiting for the plane, the attendants at the airport gate came across rude / and threatening when asking for people to check their carry-ons. While we had no carry-ons it was very striking as I have never heard this kind of communication in decades of traveling with different airlines. While on the plane, we sat in the absolute back seat, and also caught "attitude" of attendants when they communicated to one another about the carry-ons they were holding for the agent. Eye-rolling and tone. These frustrations should not be aired to customers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "not enough people at boarding desk to answer questions & do upgrades."
Cons: "Their indifference to passengers inconvenience due to flight delay was unacceptable."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "the seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "We were delayed and the pilot openly communicated the plan with the passengers. The staff was kind and considerate."
Cons: "No snacks, not even a small bag of peanuts, were offered."
Cons: "It was a little hot in there"
Pros: "Overall not bad at all :)"
Cons: "All was good"
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: "The crew were excellent. The seat was not very comfortable - it had a very firm seat cushion. The flight time was about 5 hours so it was OK. I adjusted to the feel of the chair. We had seats next to an exit door so we had more leg room which was nice."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable. The seat cushion was quite firm. I sat for 15 hours on a Qantas seat which was quite a bit more comfortable. There was no onboard entertainment unless you had a cell phone and could download the West Jet app. I was spoiled by my flight with Qantas from Vancouver to Sydney. They had touch screens on the backs of the seats so you could choose movies, radio, games, and flight info and the seats were much more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating as they were able to get me a wheel chair on short notice....thank you, thank you. The seat was not the best because the seat-back did not recline (we were seated in front of the EXIT row)....not good."
Cons: "A service of H20 should have been offered...especially when leaving very dry Palm Springs."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Crew were genuinely always smiling"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Hard landing,cramped seats"
Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Male attendant rude. For some reason refused my request for water in addition to cup of orange juice during beverage service. First time ever I was refused water by an airline."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."
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: "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"
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: "First flight got cancelled. Mind you it was a 830am flight so I left to the airport at 5am. The moved me to 10am flight, then I get to the gate and get notified that I was put on the 1145 flight. The longest day for me in a long time for travel."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
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: "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"
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: "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: "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: "WestJet has very good hard shell seats on the 737-800. These are well contoured and padded, and far enough apart to offer decent legroom (row 8). The seating experience was vastly better than being in a “preferred” bulkhead row on an AC Rouge B767-300. Boarding was efficient so we were able to leave the gate slightly early."
Cons: "Pre-purchased meals are delivered with the first service after take off, which was awkwardly early on a five hour flight that departed at 3 pm."
Pros: "Due to a baggage check-in snafu, we were very late to arrive at our gate. But we made it! And the staff were still very kind to us even though we arrived so late and they didn't know why. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever been on, and the snack and beverage service was just fine - I loved that cookies were an option and not just pretzels. Overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "JP the flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process Too warm"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Westjet service and staff are friendly and helpful as always."
Cons: "The delay waiting to have the plane deiced before departure was a bit of a pain, but I also know this is out of control of the airline or the airport for that matter. It is something that can happen with the weather, so we just have to be patient."
Pros: "Flights were on time and luggage arrived safely."
Cons: "I couldn't access inflght movies as I didn't realize I had to have the WestJet App downloaded prior to the flight. In any event I like having a screen in front of me rather than looking at a tiny Android screen. Also on a 5 hour flight it seems we should get a hot meal rather than having to pay extra for meals."
Pros: "Friendly relaxed crew. Overall organized and efficient."
Cons: "Both flights were late"
Pros: "Stewardess let me change seats to a cooler part of the cabin at the back of the plane."
Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."
Pros: "The most amazing flight crew. The flight was very cold and one of the flight attendants surprised me with a tea to make sure I was warm. I fly frequently with many different airlines and West Jet ALWAYS has the best flight crew."
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"
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."
Pros: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"
Cons: "no vegan options on the plain no tv screens"
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."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
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"
Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."
Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."
Pros: "When I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to AA failure at the gate. The woman at the westjet gate was super friendly and kind to me. She gave me a good seat and meal vouchers to get me through the night. Unlike AA who could not care less."
Cons: "I missed my flight but that not your fault."
Worst airline experience of my life, depending on how the rest of my “customer service” experience goes I may never fly american airlines again.
Pros: "Liked we actually made it."
Cons: "Another delayed American Airlines flight where the temperature in the cabin was as the overall apathy of the employees."
Cons: "the wifi is awful"
Pros: "You sold my seat , now I am sleeping in the airport it is no nice"
Cons: "Yes if you keep my seat"
Pros: "Flying portion was fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed for mechanical issues.... then upon landing trapped in cabin filled with exhaust then again trapped in a locked hallway."
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."
Pros: "Crew professional and competent"
Pros: "Clear communication on flight boarding"
Cons: "Attendant could have been more friendly."
Cons: "Due to missed connection, computer booked me on later flight, but in the wrong class (i.e., not first class as ticketed). Very helpful agent at O'Hare was able to remedy this though (didn't get her name. 6/25/19 at help desk near O'Hare gate L4, 7PM)"
Pros: "Pilot did great job, superb smooth landing."
Cons: "The two male flight attendants could have been a bit more friendly."
Pros: "comfortable plane."
Cons: "Kay&k was awful. Never use them again."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
Cons: "4 hour delay is unacceptable"
Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "didn't get my flight you said booking was guaranteed refund 24 hours but when i call to change or refund you said the airline would not change or refund. you didn't live up to your end. if you refund i would consider tat but for now. i would never use kayak again and will post my experience"
Cons: "you could have change my return when i called 2 hours after or 18 hours after now i have to pay 500 to get home you should live up to your rules and refund my money"
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff"
Cons: "Check bags online for all flights"
Pros: "Service for wheelchair was excellent with staff at checking counters"
Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Very confused as to why I am receiving messages regarding confirming flight and post flight review when I did not purchase this flight. I watched it, did NOT book it. I should not be charged for it."
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "Departure was on time"
Cons: "Really hard seats, no phone charger outlets, on board WiFi didn’t work"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Cons: "Someone stole an ipad and that forced us the be delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."
Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "We took off and arrived on time. That was the only thing they did right."
Cons: "The service was terrible. The stewardess was clearly doing exactly what she needed to in order to not get fired."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "Great Wifi! After reading bad reviews it was actually ok. Flew business on the A319 (single aisle plane) and it reminded me of qantas 737. I think for a short haul day flight I may just put up with economy instead for the price. Food is ok. I think with AA you have to pick your aircraft, it makes a difference what plane you fly as to what you get in business class. FA's were great. Overall I'd fly them again. Food was ok."
Cons: "They asked everyone to put the window shades down but I fly window seat because I like looking out! It was a day flight too! LAX T4 lounge is being refurbished so you need to go to T5 and make sure it's not the regional lounge!"
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing special, nothing wrong. On time."
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "My business class seat was comfortable"
Cons: "4hr boarding delay and no entertainment system whatsoever on a 6hr flight."
