Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Cons: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."
Pros: "Had seats in row six -- plus there was room for both our carry-ons!"

Cons: "Lots of kids on the flight. Parents did a great job coupled with the staff. I very grateful! I needed a nap ! Iol"

Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Tiny chairs"
Pros: "West Jet just runs a relaxed yet professional airline. They are just more laid back and accommodating. You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger. I really can’t complain....I had an entire row to myself....the best you can hope for, when riding on a plain for hours that’s like winning the lottery!"
Cons: "No complaints for sure"
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: "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: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Who decided that seats should be shaped that way? Always gives me a backache."
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: "Crew was fun and helpful. Was extremely accommodating in helping me switch to an earlier flight"
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: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."
Pros: "Best WestJet flight ever!"
Cons: "No issues."
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: "fair bit of leg room. fairly relaxing flight, as i am not a frequent flyer. good and safe landings as well as 'lift off' all staff was good on flight"
Pros: "safe flight comfortable seats but not much room"
Cons: "limited leg room"
Pros: "Clean plane, entertainment, crew...WINE! This has been my best flying experience in Economy for a long time. Good leg room."
Cons: "The checkin agents couldnt help me to merge two itineraries for easier transfer between two WestJet flights."
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."

Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!

Pros: "Smooth flight overall, no major issues"
Cons: "Older plane, limited entertainment options"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."
Cons: "They skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Dirty cabin, chairs, and trays. The stewards clearly find it want to be there and it showed in their lack of professionalism, appearance, and service delivered. First class is more like budget class but you board first. Dishes were dirty and and blankets full of hair."
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: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Cons: "The flight was canceled and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "United delayed my flight so I physically couldn't make the next plane, furthermore they didn't compensate my expenses from my extended airport stay which was 12 hours"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled, we were then placed on another flight and when we got to the gate that flight had been cancelled also!"
Pros: "Food was good, entertainment was excellent, comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was delayed several times and we didn't leave Denver until 7:43 pm and it was scheduled to depart at 5:19 pm"
Pros: "The flight was good and we arrived on time, despite the fact we left Denver late. Didn't buy any food."
Cons: "The Entertainment choices on this flight were lousy...I also didn't like the fact that I had to buy Economy Plus because my wife and I were not only not assigned seats together after booking, we were not assigned seats at all. When I booked the flights I was only allowed to choose seats for the first flight - Charlotte to Houston...but not for the other three legs of our Charlotte to Seattle trip. The only two seats together from Houston to Seattle were in the very last row. And, on our return flight we had to purchase Economy Plus in order to sit together."
Pros: "Left on time and landed early"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "It was the worse. She is 80 years old. Had wheelchair assistant and the person who take care of her did no have idea where she was flying,"
Cons: "Thanks god after 5 hours one of the crew helped her to sit on the right area to take the flight to Charllote and contacted me ."
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."
Cons: "back of lane smelled like lavatory - ugh"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 5 hrs. I was supposed to arrive in Charlotte, NC around 10pm. I didn't get there until almost 3am. My flight was due to leave at 630pm didn't leave until 1130pm. I called united airlines to try to get another flight but the agent said there were no other flights to Charlotte. I had to change terminals from B to E. while waiting there were many flight delayed by United Airlines. The pilot said that our flight was delayed due to crew issues/not enough leaving Mexico. We were also delayed from leaving IAH because we had to wait to board because there was not enough flight attendants. This trip was a inconvenience of my time. I should be compensated. This was ridiculous! I will never fly United Airlines again. #getittogether #hostageairlines"
Cons: "Severe delays"
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."
Cons: "There was a guy that seemed to be a United employee but he was dressed in baggie jeans, a sloppy oversized shirt, had crazy unkempt hair and smelled bad. Not sure what his position was but he was walking the aisles informin us.the flight was delayed and was directing people where they could place their luggage....not a very professional representative for the aitline"
Pros: "At the gate while we were waiting for 3 hours the United Crew brought out snacks for us to have for free because of the wait."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours, and didn't get in until 2:00am"
Pros: "The stewertesses were very kind."
Cons: "One of the united crew men threw my luggage around and and actually caused severe damage to my items inside and on the exterior. He had actually broke my luggage from rough use and being thrown around. I will never fly united again."
Cons: "It delayed an hour for no reason. It was very late flight and then it delayed one hour which was very inconvenient."
Pros: "On time and good service. Nice seats. United mobile app is the best."
Pros: "Everything was fine except I barely made the flight in Chicago.when arriving in Charlotte I had to wait about 10 or 15 minutes for a wheel chair to get off the plane."
Cons: "Having to wait on a wheelchair so long in Chicago I almost missed my flight and having to wait so long for a wheelchair when I arrived in Charlotte."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight was on time."
Cons: "I couldn't get the wifi to connect to united.com. I was disappointed after paying $40 for the upgrade to economy comfort that the seats were hard as a rock and the upgrade didn't provide you anything additional - free drinks and snacks - like it does on Delta. The extra inches of leg room is not worth $40."
Pros: "Professional and timely"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"
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. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Cons: "I do not appreciate spending several hundred dollars on a connecting flight with initially a 10 hour layover, and a delay of almost two hours."
Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."
Pros: "I enjoyed the free United wifi because I could follow the flight progress in real time."
Cons: "They need free wifi!"
Cons: "Will never fly United again if I can help it. Friday afternoon out of CLT was cancelled and rescheduled for Sat afternoon, we had a Friday night wedding and had to get to Chicago. Agents were completely unhelpful over the phone, went to the airport agents at ticketing counter were also unhelpful and threw up their hands like there was nothing they could do to help us. Finally had to switch to Delta and got to Chicago at 1AM EST, missed the wedding."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We waited all evening for a flight that kept being changed and then finally canceled. We were given several reasons from bad weather, mechanical problems, and crew out of hours. We should hv been transferred to another plane sooner without having to stay overnight with no change of clothes or personal items."
Pros: "Nice clean plane, very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The hour delay."
Pros: "To have better service and put on the correct timeframe"
Cons: "Never told and delayed 5 hours. I had to call United and they switched me to American ..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight ran ahead of schedule and the crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant woke me up to ask if I wanted a drink."
Cons: "Service is not what it used to be!"
Pros: "First off - thank you for putting food back onto what you offer when people fly united. It's a drink and a small snack. It's not much to ask, so I appreciate them putting that back in. I also liked the wifi which allowed me to check where my flight was in the air for free. Overall, I will say united is much improved from where it was - though I'd appreciate some free entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit of a mess with our flight. We had a LOT of people on standby that were standing in the boarding lines because no one was communicating to them where they should be and where to go. This is something that should be worked on by them."
Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."
Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."
Pros: "The plan took off and landed. Not much positive about united."
Cons: "Feel like a number. Crowded zone two line (Platinum and below and all the darn credit card holders. Flight was delayed for no crew, then in was maintenance issue, which could not be addressed until the pilot was there. Ugh. Inefficient."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First, when I got to the booth AFTER checking in, they told me that there isn't any more seats on the flight. The attendant proceeded to tell me "just go to JFK and see what happens" obviously I was furious. United will be lucky if I ever fly on them again"
Pros: "Flight was not only on time, but early both ways."
Cons: "Gate change at Newark."
Pros: "Kayak did a great job with updates."
Cons: "United has failed me once again. Delayed flights, no information, the crew didn't know a thing..didn't leave out until 2am and was suppose to leave ar 855"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."
