Cons: "Will never fly with WestJet again regardless of price."
Pros: "Departed early, landed early! Direct flight."
Cons: "Sound at my seat did not work so couldn’t watch a movie. (Well, could watch but not hear). Short flight. Not a problem."
Pros: "crew was very friendly"
Cons: "seat no so comfy"
Cons: "The plane was so cold that despite wearing jeans, a shirt, a sweatshirt and a jacket I was barely comfortable. Explanation from crew? Well, it was very hot in Phoenix so we had the AC jacked up. But at 35,000 feet that's no longer a problem, right? Neither is is necessary in 68-degree F Calgary."
Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"
Pros: "Seat okay. I have long legs so not enough leg room for me."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Arrived earlier than expected despite a later departure."
Pros: "Friendly staff; A relatively painless check-in and boarding procedure; Flight arrived a bit earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "No power outlet at seat on 4+ hour flight meant dead phone on arrival when used for in-flight entertainment; Now have to pay extra for basic seat selection even after check-in opens at 24-hours prior to departure (I opted not to pay, and got literally the worst seat on the plane... back row, middle seat by the lavatory); Even the for-purchase snacks taste terrible."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Pilot definitely had his passengers in mind. Landing in windy Regina was perfect"
Cons: "The cabin person upon entering sucked a lemon apparently"
Pros: "for that price I'll fly west jet every time"
Cons: "some water or something was falling from the ceiling on my brother in the window seat on take off at the back of the plane was pretty gross"
Pros: "Good movies...uuneventful flight and on time. Good service and funny steward."
Cons: "The ground crew in Calgary were slow getting boarding ramp onto aircraft. Little leg room in coach in rear seats."
Pros: "Ease of booking ,cost,dir eat flight,great departure times"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized a bit,seats a bit cramped. Entertainment not the best choices for seniors eg have some TCM choices."
Pros: "Was a good flight. No troubles or delays"
Cons: "Baggage claim was down for a bit, had to wait about 29 min. Not the airlines fault"
Pros: "I received great service and the flights were on time."
Cons: "no refund at all worst outcome"
Pros: "We left on time and arrived on time! That's all I really ask!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was fine."

Cons: "The snacks. The seats hardly recline. Baggage fees"
Pros: "Fairly standard flight. By checking in early was able to change seat closer to front."
Cons: "With baggage fees now in place, people are really over doing the carry-on & oversize bags aren't being caught by the airline."
Cons: "A little cold"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wheel chair services was horrible. 8 passengers needed assistance and there were 2 assistants to aid them. This took over two hours as they attended to passengers with connecting flights first. It was frustrating waiting 2hrs after the flight landed to collect luggage and leave airport."
Cons: "Crew was not the usual happy Westjet staff.Grumpy flight attendants.I don't think any of them ever cracked a smile for the entire flight."
Cons: "So there was a problem with the aircraft. Some cargo nett8ng was broken so they had to move the baggage from the rear to the front hold. The pilot can on to inform us of what was happening, assuring us that our baggage would arrive with the flight. B7t not surprisingly they lied and about 30 ppl didn't get their luggage. It never made it on the flight and won't be until the following morning. So I have no clothes. No jacket for sub zero temperatures. It would great if they could at least tell us that there will be a problem. Not lie I'm not impressed. I'll do my best not to fly westjet again."
Pros: "No hassles, friendly folks, on time and baggage wait ok"
Pros: "Boarding was Ok Full plane, which makes a difference"

Pros: "I enjoyed the WestJet app for movies. Really great for me and my daughter. Also the McDonald’s coffee ✅"
Pros: "The staff were nice enough on the plane"
Cons: "They said we were pre boarding so we went and stood in line with our 2 year old. Finally after 15 minutes they actually started letting the line through when they could have just waited 15 minutes to even announce the pre-boarding line. Then we boarded the plane and it was late and another 30 minutes waiting to fly. There was no TVs.. and whatever, we brought our iPad We got to Edmonton and our car seat was quite damaged. West jet couldn’t give us anywhere near the car seat we have and not one that fits in my car."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Left late but arrived on time!,"
Cons: "We sat across an aisle150 feet from the boarding gate and never heard any pre-boarding announcements. There is too much carry-on luggage, coats and backpacks in the overhead bins. No room left if boarding near the end."

Pros: "Everything went according to plan - left on time, arrived early, luggage arrived. What more can you ask? :)"

Pros: "Excellent. Again staff was very courteous and caring. Smooth comfortable flight all the way."
Pros: "Charisma and fun is the name of the game! Good work WJ"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that we had to continue to show our travel documents when asked to check in on the app. Make me scan my passport so there is an image on your server. You can verify that way or make everyone check onto a kiosk. Which you had not enough of."
Pros: "How extremely nice the flight attendants were. They went above and beyond their scope of practice to ensure each person on the flight, felt as comfortable as possible. Thx #Nancy and #Heather"

Pros: "Great service on time and as expected"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "How late the flight was but they gave us a coupon to make up for it"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "It was incredibly cramped on the plane. Also, despite our ticket saying boarding starting at 2:05, we got there at 2:08 and were among the last people on the plane so there was no room for our luggage."
Pros: "Worst seats of any airline"
Cons: "Worst seats of any airline"
Cons: "Rude staff , flight was delayed, child sitting next to me kept kicking me and his mother wouldn't say anything to him staff also didn't do anything."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Timing of flight from Phoenix"
Pros: "Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable generally. No water on the plane. Cold coffee and tea. Just a bad experience."
Pros: "the hostesses were friendly. safe flight"
Cons: "they always start at first class with drinks and food , by the time they reach further back your flight is half over, can they not do one cart from front and one from back. I realize we were not in first class but please don't ignore us"
Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."
Pros: "Entertainment unit and comfort were standard 5/5 for both"
Cons: "Boarding a massive 777 is difficult but some how other airlines do it smoother. Not sure how boarding 3 zones at once makes sense, which created a long que. Plus a delayed plane didn’t help the matter Unnecessary comments by one crew member while passengers were putting away their luggage were over heard and provided no value to the situations. Cup of noodles and a 3 tiny pieces of beef plate were provided for dinner which was very disappointing. While a typical egg breakfast and snack were also provided. Hot beverages were generally not served due to turbulence and water service during the 12hr flight was minimal."
Pros: "We did finally get to our destination."
Cons: "Late flights, missed connection, no ground service"
Cons: "Staff was rude; they seemed more interested in talking to themselves than assisting customers. Air Canada never treats customers properly."
Cons: "The flight from Phoenix to Vancouver was good except for the poor wifi when we were connected to the air canada wifi. Since there is no mini TVs on the back of the seats, you have to connect to their wifi to access shows and movies from your own device which is fine if it works. Tried to watch a movie which had huge problems connecting and the loading signal was on for a large amount of time. Once it had connected to the movie, it had restarted to the beginning about 25 times during watching it. Very disappointing and made it very unenjoyable. Also, right after we boarded, the pilot went on the intercom to tell us the ground crew had a gas spill and had to take extra time to clean it up which led us to sit on the plane for an extra 45 minutes and that led us to miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "It’s Rouge. ‘Nuff said."
Pros: "The pilot made the flight a fast time. The airfare was a good price."
Cons: "The seat leg room was too cramped and the plane was older with a noisy cabin in the rear third area"
Pros: "Airport security was great and the airport pane was clean with a great crew!"
Cons: "Didn’t depart on schedule and then had to wait in Calgary to depart as the gate wasn’t available"
Pros: "Got a seat. Made it on the flight."
Cons: "My original flight (booked in January) was changed to the following day and there was no notification. So though the first leg was fine, the second flight (Toronto to London) i had to scramble in Toronto to book the flight and get a seat. (50K elite member)."
Pros: "The crew was fairly friendly. A glass of beverage was offered and water was offered a couple more times."
Cons: "Mddle seat is never fun and is one of my dislikes but I didn't hate it. The choice to opt out of the rating of the food and entertainment is not an option on this survey therefore I give 3 stars because they were only available for purchase and I did not purchase any."
Pros: "Didn't like much about this flight. Only benefit was the price and I wish I would have paid more to fly with someone else."
Cons: "Flew Air Canada to the east coast for a vacation. They lost my bag on the way over. Understandable. Things happen. I reported it missing at the airport. My vacation has come and gone and still no bag. Here we are 9 days later and no update or anything. Their baggage center is a NIGHTMARE. I wait on hold for over an hour each time only to be greeted by someone who couldn't care less about my issues. Every person has told me something different. It is beyond frustrating. Highly doubt I will ever see that bag again."
Pros: "The overall process was painless and the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Seats were very close to the seat in front of you. If you're over 6 foot 1 inch don't fly with them."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "No leg room, very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable seats with enough leg room."
Cons: "Cold air blowing on our seats that apparently could not be turned off - we asked twice. Very crowded in terminal with several flights boarding at same time, didnt know when we were being called up and didnt know which line to be in- very confusing"
Pros: "Seats very hard to sit in for 5 hrs."
Pros: "The seating on the airbus 319 in main cabin is very cramped. Prefer Westjet 737. Will use them in future."
Cons: "We were crammed in with no room to move. no way to get comfortable. Seats not comfortable. Very tight space and not pleasant."
Pros: "Staff were courteous. No problem there."
Cons: "The plane was old and there was little leg room. Should retire it."
Pros: "Everything went well with this trip home, the service was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. A real improvement from earlier Air Canada flights. Flights left on time, a bonus."
Pros: "Good flight everything was pleasant but..."
Cons: "My bag did not arrive for close to 2 hours after we landed. About 15 bags were released on the carousel at an appropriate time and over an hour later the rest of the plane's bags arrived. The staff were not overly concerned. They announced a number of times that the bags were coming, it was almost comical. I have dealt with this before at Pearson I don't understand why it takes large amounts of time to unload bags from the plane? Or why a few bags arrived and the others took 2 hours? I am not sure if Air Canada has any control over this or if it is Pearson's responsibility but I would appreciate if you could forward this complaint to the appropriate folks. Thanks."
Pros: "There was drinks but no snacks like cookies or pretzels. There was no form of entertainment on the plane The lines on the airport was way too long and it was overcrowded"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Meals came out at great times. Food was good but not great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and started late, making our flight delayed, which made us miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "The landing of the aircraft was second to none when we landed in Calgary."
Cons: "The seats we were sitting in were uncomfortable. There seemed to be a ridge near the back of the seat cushion and it was very uncomfortable for the entire trip."
Pros: "Boarding is very slow and disorganized. Plane was unusually noisy. Rouge seats are the WORST very little legroom even by economy standards."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable ride and on time"
Cons: "Compared to the flight over with Lufthansa, the food, drinks and treatment by the flight attendants was not nearly as good."
Cons: "No movies or muisc on the plane. No snacks to eat on the plan journey. No entertainment at all!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight,and all the rest was okay."
Cons: "My seat was damaged and it was hard on my neck,unable to rest it as the top part was jutting out."
Pros: "at least a packet of crisps with your drinks of juice and water"
Cons: "no movies and music-earphones"
Pros: "The pilot got us through some pretty heavy turbulence. Good job!"
Cons: "We were waiting in the plane for a couple of hours. They had us then disembark for half an hour and board again. I missed my connection. Air Canada needs to revisit the timetables from Toronto, all the transatlantic flights leave after 16:00, that creates long queues in the airport security and huge delays in cases like mine. I arrived 20 hours after my original flight because of this schedule. Additionally, they did not offer us any food, while the whole process took more than 10 hours. We arrived in Toronto at midnight local, when everything had already closed for the day."
Cons: "Kid crying and yelling the whole flight"
Pros: "Flight had lots of empty seats, so it was easier to get comfortable. Flight attendants were kind and helpful."
Cons: "In air entertainment is supposedly through an app, so I can't speak to the quality because by the time I was in he plane I didn't have service to download it. It makes for a pretty long flight overseas when you have no movies to occupy you."
Pros: "The entertainment was great though the sound quality was lacking. The movies with subtitles were better."
Cons: "The did was pretty dire. Cup of noodles was not a good lunch at all and they ran out of the breakfast and lunch options."
Cons: "Did not fly Air Canada from Phoenix to Toronto; flew much cheaper version "Rouge". Flight was delayed more than 40 minutes in Phoenix while cargo rearranged, making us late for connection in Toronto (1.5 hour layover initially). Stewardess told us we could make flight if we ran through airport, but when we got to the gate, we were told that we had been rescheduled on another flight 2 days later! Crew on flight did not tell us this. We did manage to get another flight to Frankfurt 2 hours later on Air Canada, then to Barcelona on Lufthansa, arriving 8 hours later than originally scheduled. Rouge flight had fewer amenities than Southwest and less legroom. Did not know what were getting when booked flight -Will never fly Rouge again!"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about the flight, other than the fact that the crew was compatent."
Cons: "As far as I'm concerned , I didn't fly Air Canada, I flew Air Canada Rouge. Air Canada Rouge is a VERY poor representative of the Air Canada brand. There is NO legroom!!! My seat mate, who is Canadian told me that they reduced the distance by 3 inches from the Air Canada standard. I am not a tall person, I only have a 30 inch inseam, but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Anyone over 6 feet tall would be VERY uncomfortable."
Pros: "Competent staff."
Cons: "Packed in."
