Flight did not depart due to the weather! Was a stuff around plus the aircraft did not have enough fuel
Beverage service was lacking…
Another good flight newer plane therefore better seats. The landing was excellent!
Pros: "Good service amazing crew clean airplane good cleaning protocols"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "new plane good flight"
Cons: "seat space"
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing Best flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats are never excellent"
Pros: "The flight landed early. Check-in staff were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a debacle. Flight was oversold. Passenger had trouble boarding when their group was called."
Pros: "There was an available seat next to me"
Cons: "I had to walk from one end of Minneapolis airport to the other end all within 35 mins to catch a connecting flight, tram was not in service. Not fun!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Kat and the other stewards were very friendly."
Cons: "Maybe the option for free upgrade to first class if flight is not full??"
Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight not cancelled"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Pros: "Not crews fault that DELTA changed my flight at last minute!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Pros: "Good snacks"
Pros: "Extra leg room was great"
Cons: "Entertainment system was flickering"
Pros: "Enjoyed the ease of check in the spacious gate and the cleanliness of the planes cabin"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "I like flight comfort in air"
Cons: "Crew member were rude and pilot feels like never fly plane before , he landed in high speed and our plane jumped back in air , two passengers almost had heart attack ! We’re taken out on medical bases"
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Pros: "Being able to watch movies"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The staff were friendly, the flight fast and calm."
Cons: "Nothing that can be done, just tough being 6'5" in a connection plane."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."
Pros: "Delta and Westjet staff are of great help to me."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Liked choice of Biscuit, almonds or pretzel"
Cons: "I used mobile checking and did not get seat assignment till Boarding started"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Pros: "Nice power nap, quick flight!"
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "The gate agent helped half a dozen people (not including those described below) understand they were boarding with the wrong group."
Cons: "Fully one-quarter of the passengers boarded as disability or premium. This included a party of eight that boarded with one person in a wheelchair because "We're all together.""
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Somehow we were double booked and double billed. We got to the airport 3 hours early and checked our bags. All 3 were lost and searched. Everything was put back precariously and there was shampoo and lotion everywhere."
Pros: "i love the view from the window seats and that I was able to relax and the snacks."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable"
Cons: "In order to leave airport on time (plane came in late) they claimed overhead space was full and that remainder boarding passengers had to check their bags. (Bags to be picked up in baggage claim) When walked into plane saw plenty of overhead space for carryons!"
Airlines need to do more to help travellers with quick connections get off the plane first. Why do they board planes from the front? It makes more sense to start the boarding from the back.
It was awesome experience
Not having 2hr delays would be great
The staff at Frankfurt were incredibly rude telling passengers “I don’t have time for you”. I’ve never had a worse experience than with the ground staff Lufthansa in Frankfurt. Avoid at all costs.
Pros: "the crew were amazing. The food was good. 20 minutes late in a snowstorm, amazing. Seats were comfortable. I will definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Seat was both comfortable and spacious. Crew were very attentive and personable."
Cons: "Really great flight. Can’t say enough about it."
Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."
Cons: "A delay due to an electrical storm prevented us from taking off for over an hour which we had to wait to end on the plane."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "New planes have 9 sits in the rove (economy class) which affects the passengers comfort."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were geat and a great distraction from the seating arrangement and the horrible leg area."
Cons: "Not having a chair leg in the middle of the leg area. being able to sit next to my partner instead of having us split up. If we bought two tickets at the same time we should have been able to sit together. Lastly the huge delay that caused us to miss are final flight."
Pros: "Never seen such a large streaming movie library. Never seen live stream at seat from cameras (3) outside the plane."
Cons: "It was not clear this was a no-checked-baggage flight, seeing as I specifically searched with flights with luggage. I chose Lufthansa's flight counting on the fact that international flights always allow one checked bag. I had to pay on that way here. I"ll have to pay on the way home."
Pros: "very good on-board service , good LH crew while checking in i got an upgrade to premium economy very good food ....quite surprised easy check-in , no problem with suitcase that was a bit overweight"
Cons: "arriving in toronto , arrival gate at pearson was blocked by another plane ...so despite being a few minutes early , arrival at the terminal was finally 20min later than scheduled"
Pros: "The agent worked hard to find us another flight to rome"
Cons: "Our plane sat on turnac in Toronto waiting for a parking gate for 30minutes making us miss our connecting flight. Finally arrived but missed our train to Florence had to stay Saturday night in Rome while our villa in Lucca sat empty which was paid for"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and so welcoming! They did not flinch when they saw my three-year-old son and went out their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It was very nice to be greeted with such hospitality!"
Pros: "Food quality was good, and movies had a great selection. Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "We did not request special meals because in the past there has always been an option without cheese. For both legs of the trip, everything had cheese. They tasted great, but left my husband eating only bread. At the first meal the crew just shrugged their shoulders. Second meal they brought him a snack from business class, but it had cream cheese on the sandwich. Drinks were only served during the meals on an 8 hour flight. When crew came back through at the first meal, they only had two bottles of wine in hand offering top offs (no cart, just physically carrying the bottles). We do not drink alcohol. During the second meal I did not even see them offering the top offs. All other airlines have at least come through a couple of times offering water or soda. Announcements were only audible half the time. Customs forms were confusing for people passing through Canada. This might have been explained over the intercom, but again, it was hard to hear."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff!"
Cons: "It was very cold"
Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
Pros: "The crew was organized and very polite. Even if it was a bit of delay the plane made it in time and luggage was readily available"
Cons: "One thing that everyone was complaining about was the temperature . It was very cold and nobody anted to do anything about it. Another thing that I found unwise was the entertainment. It was a large selection of movies with very explicit sexual content. I didn't travel with kids but I was thinking what I would've done if my kids were seated next to a person like I did who was watching this kind of movies.."
Pros: "I enjoy that their planes have more space, the food is delicious, and their caring and kind attitudes all through the experience!"
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was not working properly and kept stopping and would have to be reset."
Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"
Pros: "New planes, friendly staff, decent space even for economy, great food"
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was respectful and helpful."
Cons: "I couldn't get my tablet to work with the headphones. In order to watch and hear anything, I had to hold my headphones with a certain pressure and frequently spin the headphones in order to hear anything."
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Pros: "There was good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The food was barely edible. I'm glad to have brought a snack in my bag."
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Pros: "Very pleasant experience: comfortable airplane and helpful crew, timely departure/arrival, continuing support with information about baggage after arrival."
Pros: "I flew economy. Good plane, ok food, frequent meals, good coffee, free beers and wine, best flight crew I've ever had."
Cons: "economy: The chairs were ok but I've had better ones."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was flown through Air Canada, so this review doesn't reflect on other hosts. However the flight was the worst service I've ever had on an airline in every category."
Pros: "Entertainment system, food. Crew was great."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and artival to YYZ"
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "The crew was professional and cordial. For some reason the entire AV system needed to be rebooted which required at least 15 minutes."
Cons: "There was supposed to be a meal and a snack on this flight. There was a good meal but the "snack" was a pack of pretzels. I think Lufthansa's partner AC could do a little better. I think the drinks cart should precede the food cart. I did not receive my drink until 3/4 of the way through my meal."
Cons: "Not enough leg room I am 6ft 3 tall"
Pros: "The price was good and connections were well-timed. Lufthansa had great food and service. A glass of pear brandy after dinner? Yes, please! I've seen a few other negative reviews for Lufthansa, but I've always had great experiences with them. The crew and food are top-notch."
Cons: "We had two legs on Lufthansa and the third was Air Canada. Lufthansa was great; great service, great food. But on Air Canada there was no food on a 5-hr international flight, the video screen didn't work well, and the flight attendant was having a rough day. And we took off at least 30 minutes late due to a couple of technical issues."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Pros: "That there was a flight from Toronto to Minneapolis."
Cons: "It was really cramped and small. The gate was far away from everything and cold."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Pros: "The flight attendance were nice."
Cons: "One of worst EU to US flights ever. Food was Ick, entertainment?? (even if you paid for the premium the choices were bad)."
Cons: "We missed this connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "Attendents were very warm and friendly. The pillow, blanket, water and headphones at the seat were a nice welcome."
Cons: "No reading light that I could control."
Pros: "The upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
Pros: "Nothing, and I am suing you"
Cons: "Unprofessional, terrible, kayak does not response to mails and customers concerns"
Pros: "Brian at the desk in ft Lauderdale was fabulous great personality pleasant smile just delightful"
Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and efficient flight attendant. Smooth flight. Informative captain."
Pros: "The pursar was super. She joked around with the passengers to make them feel comfortable"
Pros: "The pilot got us to Toronto."
Cons: "Everything. Contrary to most of my experiences with WestJet over the past nineteen years, this was the worst, overall, trip I have ever had with them, from delays, to missing my connecting flight, to gross incompetence with the staff, to a failure to even empathize with our situation (with a baby!)."
Pros: "not much, not even close to the service and comfort I am used to flying."
Cons: "Keep planes in working order"
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours and not handled well by the airport staff. Boarding was a mess and disorganized. We were not kept informed of the reasons for delay."
Pros: "An hour and 40 minute delay which would've made me miss my connection.bfortunately for me the next flight was delayed so with that and running through the airport to get from one gate to the other I made it... But stressful experience overall."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The staff insisted on putting bags underneath seats for a 13 hours flight..."
Pros: "flight was good not problems"
Cons: "I don't think anything could have been done better"
Pros: "Flight was early and bags came out before scheduled arrival"
Cons: "Plane smelled of sewage"
Pros: "Flight and ground crew handled a cancelled flight perfectly, with good communication with the passengers, efficient handling of bag retrieval and hotel accommodation. “Rescue” flight following day was appreciated."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours at Pearson Airport."
Pros: "The attendant didn’t take any chance on rainy whether condition and got me on an earlyer flight to make sure I wasn’t goinig to miss my connections flights. It worked out perfectly."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thank you"
Pros: "The crew was ok and the service acceptable"
Cons: "The got us a terminal in Toronto (for connection flight to Montreal) which took us 1 hr and 10 mins to switch. It is Air Canada which is sabotaging this good airlline. Is it unacceptable and Air Canada Rouge service is worst. Never fly ever again with Air Canada. I will give another chance to WestJ"
Pros: "Was the crew amazing, seriusly, we loved."
Pros: "The staff on board the westjet plane were nice but a bit short (except one blonde women flight attendant, she was lovely). The others seemed to be a bit short, likely due to heat or annoyance at punta cana airport"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was by far a complete failure. I understand we are held hostage by PUJ airport but westjet needs to step up their canadian staff there. Language by westjet staff basically Spanish only and rude. We waited on a bus to drive 10 feet to our plane and the driver seemed to enjoy letting us sit in a closed bus with babies and children and elderly. One day this will cause a serious medical issue and westjet will pay dearly. Again, I am aware we cant control that but having a canadian manager there to ensure common sense is used with their customers from gate to plane is a must. Until better I will never fly westjet from there again. On the plane they ran out of food. Again major organizational issues from the companies point of view. Also made me pay twice to pick my seats on my connecting flights. This is petty and cheap. I will be demanding a discount or rebate from westjet due to all the above. If not my story will continue."
Pros: "Left on time or mighty close to it. Arrived on time. Safe and mostly smooth flight. Flight attendants and pilot was friendly. Liked the price for a direct flight."
Cons: "Tight squeeze in the seats in terms of having the back of the passenger in front of you right in your face practically."
Cons: "Luggage left behind due to a troubled fire alarm system in the baggage dept of the plane This maintenance issue delayed us 4 hours The ground crew had to push one of their loading tractors out from under the plane after unloading the luggage. Perhaps the PEI airport crew are lacking in maintenance procedures. It's always a little things that get you into trouble and cost lives."
Cons: "I had safety concerns on the flight from YVR to Toronto because seated in the exit row were two individuals who were brought to the gate assisted on a cart and had to wait for assistance to get on and off the flight. They had very poor ambulation which made me nervous as these people have agreed, by sitting in the exit row, that they are able and willing to help in the case of an emergency evacuation. This was not a safe situation and was noted by several passengers."
Pros: "WE HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS AND THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL TO HELPING USE WITH ARE NEEDS THANKS SO MUCH IT WAS A PLEASURE TO FLY WITH WEST JET CHEERS monica formosa and josephine formosa thankyou to all west jet employees such wonderful kind hearted people"
Pros: "The crew were very amiable and one member in particular was quite funny during the seat belt demonstration. First one I've paid attention to the entire time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold and seats were quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was easy getting through the line and onto the plane. The seat was on the window, which I wouldn't normally sit in, and was comfortable enough for me to get an hour of sleep on an overnight flight; I'm content with that."
Cons: "The fee for changing my assigned seat, thus the window seat, and one of the flight attendants was very impolite; though overall the flight attendants were pleasant enough."
Pros: "It was clean and on time"
Cons: "Five hour flight delay due to a flight attendant not showing up on time, not taken care of in any way"
Pros: "Crew was good as usual."
Cons: "Thought the flight may have been delayed due to issues with ice rain in Toronto. From what was said, it wasn't that, some other issue with the plane and a cancelled flight in the west. No email in advance, no apologies, no freebies (like even a stupid sandwich). You sit an extra 2 and a half hours in an airport with a 5 year old before a 4 hour flight, and see how much the lack of anything grates. And paying for the first bag on the flight. And the emails they did send were after we were already at the airport-in no time to do any good. I Usually like West Jet , but losing my faith in them. Wonder how flair is..."
Pros: "Agreed to check bag at gate, early boarding in return. Great gift!"
Cons: "LaGuardia is terrible. They shrank departure lanes and we got stuck on the plane for an hour. I hate this airport. Something always goes wrong."
Cons: "Yea missed the connection due to taking an obviously not sick young woman off flight from Jamaica I am a doctor"
Pros: "No much.."
Cons: "To start.. due to your company combining two out going Toronto flights in Vancouver and then being late off the ground in Vancouver because if that we missed our connecting flight in Toronto to Ottawa. This in turn made us miss a very important appointment in Ottawa. I’m sure the company loves that they saved money by combining those flights however you flunked the test with me. All the corporate could care less about me missing my flight after they look at the bottom line but I will be taking my $1600 plus money elsewhere in the future because of the aggravation, frustration and I don’t care attitude that your company has provided me. I’ll I want to do is get back to Vancouver in my return flight hopefully put most likely on time with my two girls and forget that your company does exists. Thanks for the headaches and goodbye.."
Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"
Cons: "The stewardess (Stephanie was her name I think) grabbed my arm and pushed it out of her way rather than asking me to move. While it may sound dramatic, I am certainly not accustomed to a stranger putting their hands on me and it was hugely inappropriate and ruined my flight. This was my first WestJet flight after flying countless times with Air Canada. The whole experience was soured and I will never look at WestJet the same again."
Pros: "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 :)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight was rescheduled without receiving any notification from Westjet."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"
Pros: "The flight was average. Not great but not bad"
Cons: "I was forced to pay 50 dollars for our first piece of checked luggage on our return flight. This was not indicated to me when purchasing the ticket and absolutely horrible policy of weet jet and kayak by affiliation. How can you be selling tickets and not clearly indicating whether or baggage is not included. Also when we checked in it did not indicate this fee. It wasn’t until we got to the airport were we notified. Not that it makes a difference because obviously if we checked bags original departure we would obviously need to bring them back. The whole thing seems sleazy. Otherwise the service was pretty good."
Pros: "Westjet scheduled me for the next available flight for free, unfortunately, it was the next morning."
Cons: "The Halifax airport security took so long that I missed my flight and had to check into a hotel."
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."
Pros: "The attendants are nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for abiut 2 hrs and when we boarded the plabe the auxillary power supply tyat provides the plane with power when it's parked in the terminal was broken which meant the plane was freezing cold, where we were basically forced to sit for another 45 minutes due to some baggafe issue, before the plane finally turned on its engines and warmed up the cabin. This happened in Toronto during winter (-15 degrees Celsius).... Westjet service has been terrible."
Pros: "Quick flight, boarding in Vancouver easy, close to security, it crowded."
Cons: "Connection in Toronto was tight. The flight to bos boarded late so we didn’t miss it but we cleared security and customs to US and ended up there 5 min after scheduled pre boarding time."
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Pros: "I am mute and the staff was generally good at accommodating my communication methods. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight experience ever)"
Cons: "Staff updated my status to Deaf passenger without my knowledge. I am not Deaf, my hearing is fine and I understand English perfectly. I have no problem understanding the safety messaging. I am mute, I can't talk, that's all. I try not to misrepresent myself so that I don't take resources from Deaf people, so this frustrated me. also, I guess WestJet changed food policy again, now MUST pre order food, because no food was available on the flight if not Plus."
Cons: "We were delayed by two hours and didn’t take off until 10 m which was a huge inconvenience"
Pros: "Flight attendants were so nice."
Cons: "There was no info about the visa requirement and that made me stressed out once I tried to check in. Seats were too small"
Cons: "Need a check on Canadian flights when booking to see if the person needs a visa now that the rules have changed. I spent an hour at the airport filling out the on-line visa application unsure if I would be able to make the flight... just glad that the process took an hour and was approved. Please add a box to check if not a US citizen to refer to ETA site for visa needs.... less stress"
Pros: "The fact that air Canada had a flight around the same time"
Cons: "Kept delaying with no clear idea of when we'd actually take off"
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive in Pisa. No big concern expressed or info given in support of what I could spend to get essentials. Poor communication. Need an English speaking BA employee to sort these messes out. My luggage was to go from Londod ON Canada to Toronto Canada to Heathrow UK to Pisa. Made call in evening and part of info I had given at airport as to my hotels to receive luggage when found was not communicated in the computer.Luckily I called."
Pros: "I thought the flight was a smooth and comfortable one, the pilots are amazing at what they do. In my opinion they have one of the most under-appreciated jobs on the planet. They got everyone home safe and sound, and at the end of the day that's the most important thing."
Cons: "When people travel, as a professional airline you would think that luggage and food is something that would be provided for its passengers. People very rarely travel empty handed. You would think that after spending so much money on a ticket, one small meal and 1 piece of baggage would be included. It really turned me off when I realized that I had to pay extra for this. Ask yourself one question, would you travel empty handed? Would you feel comfortable paying $10 for a meal that should cost $5? I get that it's a money grab, but c'mon your company already makes millions (possibly billions) atleast provide people the option to bring one piece of luggage and a meal. I will NOT be using westjet to fly to Trinidad anymore. The flight was good, but many other airlines provide a smooth and confortable ride as well. That being said, things like that can cause people to stop using your airline and go somewhere else. Just something to think about... Caribbean airlines provide the samething your company provides, except they give you food and allow you to bring luggage woth no hassle."
Pros: "The return flight was acceptable. seats were comfortable. Would recommend on spending the extra $$ on get extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Flying out on December 24, the airline kept us at the airport for 6 (including 2 hours on the plane) hours before cancelling the flight because they could not get water pressure to the washrooms. We were supposed to leave for London (LHR) at 8:35pm and were notified of the cancellation at approx 2am on December 25. The only other flight that would be available would be on December 25 at the same time the 24th flight was supposed to leave. The service desk was not taking any requests for finding or re-booking flights, we were supposed to call their support number at 7am on the following day. We were offered cab fare accommodation from and back to the airport. They offered hotel stay which I passed on. They provided $60 of airport food that could only be used at certain restaurants, not compatible to purchase chips or drinks (non-alcoholic) from other stores. The coupons as compared to Air Canada, which are valid for a year were only valid for 24 hours. In the end the only "monetary" compensation I got from WestJet was 250 westjet dollars that expire in 12 months."
Pros: "The crew were attentive and accommodating. They identified my bad situation and rectified it quickly. 5 stars. No complaints"
Pros: "The crew was great for both flights that I took.The flight that I was able to use WestJet Connect was very nice to be able to watch movies & also track the flight's progress."
Cons: "It should be made more clear in the email correspondence the importance of downloading the app before the flight. I read the email briefly but the most important information was that there was not to be an Note 7s on the plane. It was less clear that the only way to get movies on the flight was through the app & by the time I realized this I was already on the plane & unable to download it fast enough before departing. However the flight home I had the app & that was lovely."
Pros: "The Consistency!"
Cons: "Location of the gates in Charlotte are always so far away from one another!"
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: "Stewardess forgot to give me my coffee"
Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seats. It was a fairly smooth ride."
Pros: "The crew was good in first but ooor in baxk"
Cons: "More room for bags"
Pros: "Pilot did great job, superb smooth landing."
Cons: "The two male flight attendants could have been a bit more friendly."
Cons: "No wifi no movie."
Pros: "I hated the whole experience"
Cons: "I’ve never flown American Airlines and the flight was on time."
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: "Much better flight in 1st class than in cattle car. Not happy about the extra cost just so not to be misrtsble."
Pros: "Not happy having to spend the extra money to fly 1st class because the flight from Phoenix was so terrible."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs - but no fault of the airline."
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
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: "Service for wheelchair was excellent with staff at checking counters"
Pros: "I was in first class thanks to an upgrade. The flight attendant was very nice. But the amenities are total garbage - no seatback in-flight entertainment, no power."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment except on your own device. No power, ensuring your device will die on a long flight. The old US Airways fleet from the Northeast is awful."
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: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Cons: "Too many delays that made me miss the original time I was to catch my connecting flight. Missed my appointment in Spain as a result..."
Pros: "On time. Quick boarding."
Cons: "The delay out of Charlotte but the staff did a great job keeping us informed and boarding as quick as possible."
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: "It was a small plane so the crew pulled larger totes and packed them separately. It worked very efficiently given the circumstances."
Cons: "Very tight quarters, but ok for short flight"
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: "excellent flight. on time and no issues"
Pros: "Entertainment, seating room"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. It was Christmas so the flight was not full."
Cons: "It was a short flight, so it was fine."
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."
Pros: "On-time arrival; competent crew"
Cons: "Nothing; the flight was OK."
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: "Good movies"
Cons: "not enough food"
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 ok"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat but had to sit in different spot. Set in isle seat"
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: "Passengers were kept well-informed by staff on flight status. Boarding process was efficient. Gate agents and crew were professional and friendly. Appreciated the in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and claustrophobic. I'm only 5 feet tall and my legs were stiff after a 90 minute flight. "Snacks" were kind of pathetic - tiny bag of pretzels. The worst part was the crowded gate area at Boston. It made me feel like a cattle holding pen. Since we're told to get there two hours early, it would be nice to have more than a tiny little snack bar with overpriced pre-made sandwiches and salads that have been sitting out for who knows how long. Crappy lukewarm coffee. Starbucks is right outside security, but of course we can't bring liquids through."
Pros: "Vegetarian food needs lots of improvement"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Pros: "I am 6ft 1 / 185cm and the leg room was OK for an economy flight. Food was OK for airplane food. Staff were very friendly. Overall very happy."
Pros: "Movies available. Food available for purchase."
Cons: "It was crowded in the back of the aircraft. Many vacant rows were available, but my advance check in and seat change / upgrade was not available on line. I would have paid to have moved up to an un-occupied section of the aircraft if I could have. My mistake. I should have got up and walked around looking for these vacant seats. Despite the captain announcing that WIFI Internet was available for purchase. There was no WIFI on this aircraft. I am a tech guy. The flight attendant said just use your credit card. NO there was no WIFI available."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"
Pros: "Our connecting flight was cancelled due to weather. That is truly out of the airline’s control. What is in their control is communicating the status of the flight with us. When we checked in they took email addresses and cell phone numbers for status updates. We never received any updates. Consequently we didn’t know the flight had been cancelled until it was too late to make an adequate adjustment. On top of that we had to deal with the worst customer service rep in the world at the ticket booth when we struggled to make alternate plans. Completely unsatisfactory experience."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online and therefore wasn’t able to update with my dietary requirements which meant I couldn’t really eat anything that was given. I was told at the airport that it needs to be submitted 24 hrs before the flight and there was nothing they could do. Really unfair and not on."
Pros: "The staff were great!! Always helpful and very friendly! The added flight from Ottawa to Toronto had fantastic staff as well. Would've been nice to have someone waiting for us at the Ottawa gate as we all missed our flights."
Cons: "The day was extended by 10 hours. It seemed like each time I was redirected including the added flight to Ottawa I was set up to miss a flight. I was sent to Ottawa because there wasn't enough oxygen on the flight to Toronto. 15 passengers missed our flight to Toronto because we left Fredericton late which put us on a new flight 2 hours later, that had mechanical issues so again a missed flight. I am happy they do their due diligence with safety, but it created a long day. They also had to stop food service before they got to me so I wasn't able to get food."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"
Pros: "I got from point A to point B"
Cons: "I lost over a day of my trip because a flight was cancelled and wasted 6 hours trying to rebook with no help from the staff, who were extremely rude. Everyone on the canceled flight had to be aggressive at getting a new flight booked because there was no help. Every time you asked an associate from Aur Canada for help, the passed the problem off not taking any responsibility. If your name is on my ticket, then it's your responsibility. Worst experience traveling by far. Also lost over a day of my expensive trip that I've been waiting to go on for awhile and saved my money for a year. I lost hundreds of dollars in events and hotels. Avoid Air Canada if possible"
Pros: "Ease of boarding - no long queues. Offer to put hand luggage in the hold with no charge."
Pros: "As a professional musician, flying with my viola is one of the most nerve wracking experiences, as if it is forced to be checked due to insufficient room for overhead baggage, it could be completely destroyed. As stated in Air Canada's online policy, passengers traveling with musical instruments that fit as carry on baggage are allowed to change to earlier boarding zones. After approaching a staff member with my viola, I wasn't simply assigned an earlier zone, but rather I was allowed to board first. On this principle alone I will be flying Air Canada again. Thank you!!!"
Pros: "That we arrived in Toronto and got to get off the plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours. The rows are way too close together to be remotely comfortable, and the seats themselves are tiny and barely recline. Being 5 months pregnant, I was uncomfortable the entire flight. The "entertainment" that you have to download an app for didn't work, and particularly stung knowing how much we paid for the flights, and that other airlines simply put a TV on the back of each seat that is easy to connect headphones and view. The food on our previous flight had been so terrible we didn't bother on this trip, but it looked equally awful. My husband was in the aisle seat and the flight attendant repeatedly and without warning hit him with the cart. The flight attendants varied in level of friendliness, but the ones in our row rushed through service, and did not give us the options the other row had (ice in drinks, veggie or meat options). All in all, it was kind of a terrible flight experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern aircraft"
Cons: "Extreme delays on my return flight which made me miss my connection and get rebooked on another flight for the next day. We were delayed on departure, then on the tarmac, then in the air, and finally when getting off the plane. I am glad that I was rebooked and was given a hotel to stay at, but I did not like the way I was treated by Air Canada staff at customs. I passed through customs only to be sent back into Canada after having crossed through security because the staff decided to close. We were told by other staff members that it was up to them to decide when they were done and to talk them. I ran through the whole airport with about 7 other people to make it. Why make us cross through security only to send us back? There was no one there to guide us on what to do. I had to go through the whole thing again the following day only to have my face cream taken away (it is technically cream, not a liquid) and then be detained. None of this happened AT ALL the day before. I'd give more details but it was a complete mess."
Pros: "Pretty standard flight...nice crew, free drink, left and arrived on time for the most part. Liked that I could check in early to arrange a seat."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable. Had a couple knees in my back."
Pros: "The pilots were professional, got us there on time and did a wonderful smooth landing."
Cons: "The flights attendants uniforms were wrinkled and old, tired and worn out looking, their behaviour was the same. They were pretty much tired and disinterested in their job. Time to hire new blood, get new, fresh looking uniforms, and there definitely should be a weight limit, I have seen flight attendants who have to turn sideways to get down the aisle comfortably, what on earth would they do in an emergency. Yes size does matter. Look to JAP airlines for style and dignity in the job. Having said that I love Air Canada and fly it as often as possible home."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Pros: "Seats were ok but a bit cold all the way."
Cons: "One hour late leaving, no reason or information given. Food was awful with green sauce on chicken and celery bits in milk for salad, the connecting flight was cancelled and the option was another flight in two days. The only flight going later that evening was full and the next day was full also they said. An hour later a bus service was offered leaving in ten minutes which many of us raced to catch on our own with no one to show us how to get to the bus. The bus we were told to look for was the wrong bus. Of course our luggage didn't make it and that took another hour to register at our destination as every one else on the bus didn't get their luggage either. Bus driver got lost but passengers were able to show him the way. This is the third time in four flights Air Canada has lost our luggage. The worst was the NO ONE ever smiles, we were watching for it, and certainly NO ONE ever says we are sorry you are inconvenienced which would go a long way to make the delays and changes more tolerable."
Pros: "The people at Air Canada were friendly and clear with what was going on."
Cons: "Flight was delayed even though the plane was at the gate."
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Pros: "Entertainment and food were nice. There were two meals, one would have been fine, but both were great."
Cons: "The check in counter in Dublin was horrendous. I was forced to check a luggage that was my carry-on on the outgoing flight so there was no reason it was not going to fit on the upper compartment, but the counter agent forced me to check it anyway, even with it being under weight limit. The line was huge and there were 5 counter agents, but 3, and at times 4 agents, at a time, were only pulling from the priority boarding line. We had to wait more than one hour to check in. Than to the boarding, the same people from the counter were the boarding agents. The boarding was extremely slow and again unorganized."
Pros: "Food was good and flight attendants were very professional. Our first time flying Air Canada and I was very impressed!"
Cons: "To pay so much for a transatlantic flight and have to pay $10 for an IPad on the 8 hour trip home??? It would be nice if even limited internet was included so we could use our own device. The worse experience was getting through customs at the airport in Barcelona on the way home. Only two agents available to stamp passports on a Sunday morning when the world's largest cruise ship (Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas) had docked earlier that morning? We arrived at the airport at 8:30 and no Air Canada agents were available to check us in until 9:00. After waiting to get through customs and we proceeded to our gate, our 11:45 flight was just beginning to load! Lots of shoving and people cutting line to avoid being late for their flight. I heard one person mention they had missed their flight, and I'm certain many others did as well. With the chaos and delay, I'm surprised altercations didn't happen. The airports/airlines need to work with the local authorities to avoid these delays and provide their customers better service."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada pricing is same as other non budget airlines like British airways, Lufthansa but service is on par with budget airlines like Ryan Air. I'm amazed how they get away with it."
Pros: "Both planes were nice. Attendants were pleasant. Food and entertaining were great."
Cons: "Flight from Paris to Toronto was delayed 4 hours. That automatically caused us to miss our connecting flight from Toronto to Nashville. The 1st flight turned out to be more than 4 hours late. The 2nd flight was delayed as well. Not to mention we were directed many places throughout the Toronto airport trying to locate a boarding pass for the 2nd flight in hopes to make it to Nashville that day. All members of the Air Canada staff were helpful, however traveling for over 20 hours majority of which was spent in foreign airports made for a long and unpleasant day. It would have been different had it been our fault for being late or missing a flight, but we were very early for our international flights which simply added to the amount of time we had to sit, wait, and hope. A coupon was given to us, however being that I live in a different country I don't know how quick I will be able to redeem this."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew: food and comfort as good as it gets these days in Economy."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. Announcements were difficult to hear in the terminal; there was a step requiring all passengers to queue up as if boarding but instead it was a passport/boarding pass check. The two queues were not labeled, there was much line-switching, and the passport-check lines blocked the terminal for travelers for other flights... The incoming plane was late; we wondered why this passport check could not have proceeded while we waited instead of delaying our boarding once our plane arrived."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "The crew was doing the best they could and was professional."
Cons: "Where to start, I have taken Air Canada 1 time before to Regina and you lost my luggage, luckily it was on the flight home. This time check in was very disorganized and unprofessional (I got scolded when my luggage bumped the post that forms the line that was set up after half the passengers were there making the last to show up first in line.) The flight was delayed and hour for a broken air mask upon departure . The monitor screens were hard to see and harder to hear. Upon arrival we sat for 30 minutes because they couldn't shut the engines down. Customs was a breeze but the walk from terminal to customize to the next terminal had me winded, luckily my connecting Air Canada flight was late also . And this was the better part of my experience. My flight to Athens was miserable ( lots of screaming children spread out through the plane). And when I thought it was over my luggage was separated and lost for 3 days. I should send you the underwear as a reminder of my experience"
Pros: "My seat on my first leg coming back to New Tork from Tokyo to Toronto."
Cons: "I booked my flight 8 months in advance and pre ordered a vegetarian meal a week before leaving for my trip. They "forgot" one of my meals (breakfast meal) on my return flight home. Hey also gave me a tuna sandwich for my snack, which means they also didn not have a vegetarian sandwich for me in between my dinner and breakfast meals. It was the first time every traveling overseas that they've made an error with my meal plan after flying on multiple airlines. My connection was a nightmare as I had to wait to go through security and customs which took over an hour and then my second flight was delayed. I will never fly through Canada again from the U.S. To another destination country."
Cons: "The departure time for the flight was 6:00am and there was no one in the check in counter until 4:15am. There was a long queue for the check in. Not a pleasant waiting time for the check in"
Pros: "We got there safe."
Cons: "Got to airport in morning only to find out flight delayed 3.5 hours. No prior notification so instead of waiting in my comfortable home I got to wait at airport. Check in lady was a witch - sorry I made you do your job. Bounced my luggage for being 3 lbs over. Lame excuse of plane mechanical problems for delay. My girlfriend flew same flight 10 days earlier and had same thing happen. If Air Canada has that many mechanical issues I'm not feeling warm and fuzzy about them."
Cons: "Plane was broken. Air condition did not worked. Flight was 2.5 hours late. Missed our connection to Budapest."
Cons: "Without notice, flight was delayed more than 3 hours."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but not overly helpful. There was a nice selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "The food was horrible and made me throw up. The flight was freezing and the seats hardly reclined making it very uncomfortable. Especially since we were on the plane an extra 2 hours from a delay. The flight delay caused me to miss my connection flight. And then I wasn't put on the next available one, I had to wait around in the airport for a very long time, 4 hours to fly home. My baggage was lost. And my credit card was charged twice for my checked bag. The customer service employees in the airport refused to help me with either issues. I am extremely unsatisfied with my experience on Air Canada and will never be flying with it again."
Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."
Cons: "My daughter got destroyed by a cup of coffee a passenger behind her was holding when turbulence struck quiet bad,neither he or the airline apologizes for either."
Pros: "The entertainment options were decent. Food wasn't bad. The crew courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The booking and ticketing department for Air Canada messed up quite a bit with our trip overall. It wasn't just one narrow event: even after the delayed flight, and 6 hour phone call to get rebooked, we had to use international roaming charges at the Shanghai airport to call and get them to correct an error they made with our flight out of Shanghai. The flights themselves were alright, but I want to use every opportunity I have to complain about the booking and customer service process."
Cons: "10:30am flight delayed for three hours. They moved my flight to 7:30am and no one told me. Someone claims they did not have my email address. The thing is, I received at least three emails prior to the flight from AirCanada, one was my itinery. So whoever couldn't find my email address must be looking on another planet or something."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Attendant told us to come back tomorrow and we could get on the same flights just a day later. Really?? not that stupid. Had problems getting a room overnight - management said we weren't in the system. Gentleman at air canada desk very rude - even told his partner in front of us he couldn't stand this part of his job."
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

Cons: "The frustrating portion was the airline's lack of desire to fix our problems. The first flight was late because of mechanical issues and then Air Canada was not at all forthcoming in getting us rebooked on the next flight. Something that should have been quite simple involved me having to fight with workers just to get put on a new flight -- nobody wanted to actually do the work."
Pros: "Generally OK Food quite good, relatively"
Cons: "30 mins delay Cramped even for Economy"
Pros: "Not much. This first experience with Air Canada left me thinking it must be a severe-discount carrier."
Cons: "By the end of Group 4 boarding they were already taking carry-on bags at the jetway to check into the baggage compartment. We had a 1:05 connection in Toronto to catch our flight to London. They could give us no assurances that our luggage would make the connection. Thankfully we were able to talk our way onboard and found space to store our bags. When I was finally seated I had to warn the person seated in front of me to please not recline. Sitting with my back flush to the seat, my knees were literally in contact with the chair in front of me. There was ZERO room for that passenger to recline without causing me great pain. I sat on our five hour flight in great discomfort. Adding to my discomfort was a lack of food and zero entertainment. Paying for food is fine and I did it but on such a long flight it seems abusive. Food should be provided on longer journals. That all all I could do was read was also fine but video and Internet are increasingly expected and this flight had neither. I'll have doubts about ever flying Canada Air Rogue again."
Cons: "Once my flight was delayed, it caused much confusion, missed connections, and rerouting"
