Neither of these was true. despite asking 2 airport employees only the 3rd, right before we boarded told us that the "screens were not updated." For an experienced traveler even, this was misleading and confusing. I also wish the attendants escorted people off row by row and not all the pushing of people from the back trying to exit first. Chaos."
Cons: "Not only did they not let me board the plane because I was in the bathroom but then they charged me an outrageous amount for a new ticket to get out of Lima. Their transit staff were completely unhelpful and couldn't care less about my situation. I will NEVER fly them again."

Pros: "Very professional service, nice people, newer airplane, plenty of entertainment options, got my luggage where it needed to go despite 2 connections."
Cons: "I was put in a seat before the exit row, meaning my chair did not recline for a 5 hour flight. In addition, the seat in front of me was at least 3-5 inches closer than any other seat on the plane. I understand there are these seats on the plane, I just wish I would have known prior or been given the option to change seats."

Cons: "I was not informed of having to pay $150 extra for having a surfboard, very disapointing"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Pros: "I was originally booked through jfk with an 80 minute layover. When I told a delta.help desk employee i feared it was too tight (I flew out through jf k and that was enough to convince me...) he booked me through Atlanta with a.comfortable schedule. Thank you!"

Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "We had exit row seat, most uncomfortable ever, video devices both broken. Will never sit in exit row again would have been better off in basic economy"

Pros: "I had the chicken beans and rice which was good, the chicken burrito was a little soggy and had to peal it out of the box but taste ok."
Cons: "The choice of the movies were either action or kids movies, i would like to see some sports movies, auto race, football or espn. All of the was energetic with great smiles and service except for one that never smiled and lacked enthusiasm. I wondered why she was on the plane."
Pros: "In rescheduling us they only charged us $54 per person"
Cons: "Reminder came 20 min beforehand and because I didn’t pre check in we missed the flight even though the plane had not even arrived.... terrible experience in Paris and impacted our life in a large way.... not a good experience using kayak"
Pros: "Free wine and spirits and food really not too bad in economy Very large movie and tv show library - something for everyone Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Overhead bins a bit small on this older 767-300"
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "I hate the biscuits and water... really? On a 3hrs and 30 minutes flight. You guyz can do better"
Pros: "The food and enterntaibment are always nice. The captain was super friendly and opportune with his communications. Seating was as fast as possible and boarding was swift."
Pros: "On the first leg I liked the entertainment options. There were plenty of current content to watch and the screen was good enough. I still resorted to my iPad after a while but it was more because I wanted to watch something specifically rather than I had to. The food was decent but as usual the good stuff runs out before you get your turn. Order special food next time."
Cons: "I don’t like any airlines boarding process in general. They always seem inefficient and slow. I didn’t like the free headphones they passed out. They’re so awful that they really ruin whatever you’re trying to watch."
Pros: "They had available seats on an earlier flight and I was able to get home super quick! My checked bag also made it which was great!"
Pros: "Loved the roomy seats and the upgrade wasn't terribly expensive"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"
Pros: "Friendly staff. :)"
Cons: "Longer flight with no WiFi or video. :("
Pros: "Please see above. Sherry was amazing"
Cons: "Plane was small and older but it was a short flight"
Pros: "All wonderful."

Pros: "They hade entertainment"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Felt agents held me back at the check-in counter resulting in me missing my initial flight and voiding my complete routing. Had to fly on a flight 7hrs after my booked flight because Delta had no other option (very untrue as there were other airlines flying to my final destination. Delta just didn't bother providing good customer service"
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm throughout the three hour flight."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Like ALL planes today, too crowded."
Pros: "The crew did a great job of dealing with delays beyond their control and made sure we - and our luggage - made a connecting flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "Columbus airport is very nice. Security was quick. Boarding the plane was smooth and no problems. Staff was very nice too!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "This flight was on a Transavia codeshare with Delta and a real downer after coming from a Delta One business class segment. An uncontrolled mass boarding, crammed in seating, no amenities and charges for a drink of water made this a pretty crappy flight. The crew was nice though."
Pros: "Clean plane, friendly crew. Ahead of schedule arrival, pilots did beat to keep in smooth air."
Cons: "Took a bit to get first beverage. Thy ran out of KIND granola bars before reaching the back of the plane."
Pros: "First time flying Delta. And let's just aay, now I know why it's so cheap. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."
Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Pros: "Painless"
Cons: "Price of food"
Cons: "Probably the roughest, bumpiest landing over ever experienced. The brakes were grinding very loudly during taxi (I overheard several other passengers comment on this). The plane was very cramped and the air smelled. Thank God it was such a short flight."
Pros: "Westjet's employees were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Delta told us we were flying out on a Delta flight, and gave us a Delta flight number. In reality it had placed us on a Westjet flight without telling us, and we had no idea we were to check in with a different airline. And because Delta unilaterally changed our flight time without telling Westjet, we were unable to check in online and were later told that we were booked on the wrong flight by Delta. Delta's communications with us and with Westjet were deplorable."

Long delay die to pet mix up. Also bags took forever to get to carousel

Cons: "Be on time!"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could under the conditions"
Cons: "There was a broken toilet that was very loud and created long line ups because economy only had use of the 1 bathroom while the first class had 2 bathrooms for so few people"
Pros: "Good connections, short layover but long enough."
Cons: "Last minute gate changes, not announced."
Pros: "Crew and staff at gate fantastic. Accommodated me sitting with partner on both legs (booked flights separately)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."
Pros: "flight was fine and on time, this leg of my trip was easy"
Pros: "All westjet workers are amazing. Starting from the people at the front desk, the crews on the plan and the people that give direction."
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Pros: "Friendly crew, informative captain."
Cons: "Nothing- it was a very short flight, didn’t need anything else."
Pros: "Our stewardess was amazing. Took very good care of us. My son was sick and made sure a wheelchair was available for him total take us to transportation. Made our trip. Thank you!!"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "It was all good."
Cons: "More room"
Cons: "Delays left us in the plane for almost 1 1/2 hours before leaving Toronto."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above please"
Cons: "No entertainment service."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Pros: "Horrible check in"

Cons: "Food not so great Also wanted music. Was none"
Pros: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "Joesph air host was amazing! Took care of numerous people with kindness & professionalism on our morning fright from Toronto to Vegas!"
Cons: "Lots of kids on the flight. Parents did a great job coupled with the staff. I very grateful! I needed a nap ! Iol"
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "So poorly organized at boarding ! Staff on the ground that where lazy ! On board staff where lazy ! Waiting for luggage took over 40 mins. Horrible ! Good thing I've had other flights that where much better."
Pros: "Affordable, great service, and easy"
Cons: "The internet and TV service were both broken on the flight. I missed out on much of the work I had to do. I was very disappointed that we were only told just minutes before boarding. I was not prepared to spend 5 hours on a flight with a screaming baby, unable to work or watch tv."
Pros: "I would like to see more spacious and comfortable seating. They rest is inconsequential. Besides that, no complaints. Thank you."
Cons: "We did not like feeling cramped. This part of the world is breeding much bigger humans than before. Please make allowance for that. I had a tough time breathing...2 big guys side by side is a sorry sight in that limited space."
Cons: "I was in row 2 and they did not have the food item I wanted. Seriously?"
Cons: "The crew on the plain was extremely rude!!! Very very dissapointed!"
Pros: "West Jet never disappoints..."
Pros: "Extra leg room, staff very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No tv screens on back of seats, liquids should be offered more"
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 YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Pros: "WestJet was great. I had assistance this flight and they took great care of me"
Cons: "Totally full flight so squished in my seat"
Cons: "We were told not to take the late flight to TO as Westjet would not hold the connecting flight (TO to Gatwick) for us. This meant our TUI connection in Gatwick to Chambery would have been wasted along with bus transfers. West jet did not offer us AC flights that were available to keep us near to our schedule. We ended up cancelling the Westjet flights and buying AC flights to Heathrow at a cost of $3300 + $300 taxi to gatwick + abandoned bus to Gatwick Westjet did offer us a flight on Sunday ! In the end, we are not sure if booking thru Kayak was part of the problem as Wesjet staff said ..... Oh you booked thru a 3rd party Comments ?"
Cons: "The entire flight's baggage never were received. The stewardess even promised that all bags would be received within 20 min. We waited 1 hour until we went to go talk to someone to inquire about the delay. They opened up a baggage claim, but the claim status only ever says open or closed, which says nothing about the status of the bag."
Cons: "Lack of attention from aeromexico in customs to ensure making the connection. Sevice is a joke."
Cons: "2 hour delay, small plane, rude crew"
Pros: "The reservation was quick and effective"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. We missed our connecting flight so we are in a hotel in Toronto now at 1:30 am. And our flight out is at 5:50 am and we will need to get up by 4 to get to the airport by 4:50. Getting our hotel and food vouchers was long and painful and disorganized. Would not fly with them again"
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: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it."
Cons: "No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me."
Pros: "Very helpful employees letting us know procedure of bosrding"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Personable and professional staff. Great service"
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Pros: "Reaching my destination"
Cons: "Wish the emails/alerts came sooner. I waz always in transit when i was told my flights had been delayed or cancelled. I wont blame people for weather but it was the most annoying trip i have yet to take. I dont mind dissapointment but please dont waste my time."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "No issue at all"
Pros: "same as above."
Cons: "same as above."
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "My boarding was no so good. However all went well."
Pros: "safe flight comfortable seats but not much room"
Cons: "limited leg room"
Cons: "Paid for reservation of a particular seat. At check-in was offered my choice of another seat without regard to the fact that I had paid for seat selection. Westjet employee did not honour paid-for selection or offer refund."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Pros: "The 777 is excellent. Service very friendly. Food is good. One leg flight is super good"
Cons: "Apparently the pilots are allowed to smoke on these long flights. In this trip it was not bad but on previous flights it was really bad"
Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Pros: "On time and pleasant staff"
Pros: "Breakfast was excellent"
Cons: "TV screen were too dark"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Flight was smooth once airborne"
Cons: "Delayed Flight Seats seemed very small for an Air Canada Plane"
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "It took two air hostesses two hours to service the entire cabin. There is a training issue. I would not fly air canada again."
Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and pilot was knowledgeable"
Cons: "My tv screen didn't have sound !"
Pros: "Normal flight, short, nothing special about it to mention."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not so bad..."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was broken which for a 5.5 hour flight is quite difficult. The only compensation the air flight attendant offered was a glass of wine,which I couldn't drink due to being on medication. I had purchased 3 meals and 2 snacks so she could have comped one of them. This is the second time I experienced this on Air Canada with little to no appropriate service recovery. I had my iPad~an offer of free wii fii would have also been an option"
Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Pros: "- plane had more legroom than the usual - plane left and landed on time, an always welcome outcome for an AC flight - in flight movie selection was good"
Cons: "- plane was overbooked, and boarding took a while - staff only offered drink refreshments (ex. coke, coffee, etc) once, rather than the usual twice. The other time they just came by with water, which the flight attendant accidentally over-poured and spilled some on the middle passenger between me and the attendant. Good thing it was only water... - more turbulence than usual, but out of the control of the pilot"
Cons: "Audio jack for entertainment weren't working."
Cons: "Flight was delayed forced us to stay in Ottawa an extra night. Only compensation we received was a $10 meal voucher!!"
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "Tv screens were bigger and alot more newer than west jets."
Cons: "I always flew with west jet and herd people say good things about air canada. So I decided to try them out. I had a 4 hour flight and I did not like the seats.. they were not comfortable at all.. the padding felt very thin and could feel the plastic she'll of the seat.. it wasn't just that plane.. i had a return flight with 1 lay over. I would go back to flying west jet. They had the same size planes and way more comfortable seats."
Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"
Cons: "Delayed flight, nearly missed connection, lost luggage, inconsiderate staff"
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was NO complementary food for a 5 hour flight. I didn't have a credit card to purchase anything"
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."
Cons: "Very slow service"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."

Cons: "Not being made aware of the real departure time ahead of time."
Pros: "Crew was excellent seat was as usual"
Cons: "Something to Fill your tome a little more"
Pros: "..."
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."
Pros: "Avaiability"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "empty"
Cons: "food"
Cons: "Better snacks"

Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Pros: "The arrive time was excellent. Courtesy and smile faces of the Crew in Business Class"
Cons: "The boarding process was ugly, in disorder and it is a big lie you have with your business class ticket the priority option. The food was very poor. I had to avoid continue eating because I felt the food was not fresh."
Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"
Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"

Cons: "No variety of snacks options"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They don’t care about their passengers one bit"
Cons: "This is the fourth time that I've been bumped off of a flight because United overbooked. I'm in the military and each time I was trying to get home to family or fly family to me. I will never fly with United again."
Pros: "The service at the automated counter was very good"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing! It was there that I found out my plane was delayed and I would miss my baby’s ceremony. Things went downhill from there."
Cons: "The fact that I’d depart an entire day later. Was given a complimentary hotel but my luggage had already made it to Honolulu. No clothes and my medicine was in my luggage. I can’t explain the disappointment I feel simply because I know United Airlines doesn’t care about their customers. Like I’ve been told it’s corporate America and all that matters is the money. So sad because it’s the customers that have to suffer!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew on ground and in air. Flight was on time departing and arrived ahead of schedule into SF. Nicely done!"
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Cons: "As common as this might be, I think 4 hours delay is the worst advertising for an airline. I completely understand things can happen but, what would happen if I show up 4 hours late? will you be ok with that. We gotta be fair. I think passengers deserve a compensation for this"

Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Pros: "Awesome Illy coffee and stroopwaffel cookie for my flight to Guatemala for my first medical mission trip on a snowy cold morning was a welcome snack. It was so much better than the snack mix or nut packs that you usually get."
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Pros: "Schedule"
Cons: "My bag didn't came with came, it was a direct flying. The air conditioned was too cold"
Pros: "the layover waiting time was relatively fast! Also, the united airlines staff was very helpful in answering any questions I had."

Cons: "Didn't ride. Stuck in Chicago overnight."
Pros: "We landed."

Pros: "Perfect, the service is great !!"
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa.

Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"
Pros: "Kind men beside me"
Cons: "I will never accept the last row of seating EVER!!! I have a bruised knee and double sprained ankles and could not lean back. It was the most awful flight of my like. I could barely get out of the row. I sat in 39A. Horrible I tell you."
Pros: "Kindness of crew"
Cons: "Flights were delayed, no entertainment... Only pay-per view... No free food..."

Better from FLL to KW."
