The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board.

Baggage fees and leg room.

Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it.

No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me.

The plans wasn’t chock-a-block full making it more comfortable for all of us

The customs process at Abbotsford International Airport was ridiculously slow with only 2 boarder guards & several others seemingly standing around

My first trip started on a poor note; I got to airport about an hour before boarding, only to find out that my flight was rescheduled from 9:30am to about 6:15pm ( or so) on that same day without prior notice. I went up to the counter and asked for confirmation for the switch and inquire if there was an issue, which may have affected my original flight. Turned out that the change was due to weather conditions at Toronto (makes sense). I had suggested that it would have been nice to receive some sort of notification, before starting that day way too early and inconvenience of going to pickup my car from the airport parking, only to come back again. The attendant sympathized with my plight and compensated me with a lunch voucher (which was nice of him and WestJet). Matter was resolved; I came back to catch my flight and the trip was wonderful :)

I didn't like the fact that my flight was rescheduled without receiving any notification from Westjet.

Crew was friendly. Plane appeared clean.

Flight was delayed twice. Luggage was delayed coming off the plane. I assume it was weather related. One piece of our luggage was damaged. Not able to connect to entertainment app.

MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund

Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department.

My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?

We sat across an aisle150 feet from the boarding gate and never heard any pre-boarding announcements. There is too much carry-on luggage, coats and backpacks in the overhead bins. No room left if boarding near the end.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in CAD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
