Pros: "All excellent"
Cons: "Snacks without caffeine"
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Pros: "The stewardess accidentally spilled a little water on me but she was so nice about it and apologetic that she paid for my drink. Good people skills in bad situations make a huge difference."
Pros: "Flights arrived early, boarding was very smooth"
Cons: "Kids on the flight were extremely disruptive despite flight attendants’ attempts to get them settled down"
Pros: "They were very helpful and polite."
Cons: "Times have changed and they offer very little such as entertainment food options. but it was short trip and people need to adjust."
Pros: "Service is awsome"
Pros: "Nope. Just got me to where I was going..."
Cons: "Complimentary food, service (smile a little guys!), comfort."
Cons: "Timing. The flight was delayed by 1 hour and 15 mins."
Pros: "West Jet was well organized and very professional in helping travellers on a full aircraft reach Hobolulu. I was particularly impressed by the polite calm and efficient cabin staff. Will use this airline again."
Cons: "did not like having to go further west before heading back east wasted a lot of time. and no entertainment unless you pay for it, seriously?"
Pros: "Left on time, pleasant crew"
Pros: "The stewardess was awesome."
Pros: "The crew were so kind and friendly. Kept the spirit upbeat and served us well. The bulkhead was roomy enough for carry on bags, so they weren’t taken away from us to be checked, which happened to us on the same flight last year with another Canadian airline."
Cons: "I do miss personal screens in seats, although I understand it’s not really necessary anymore. If there were a ledge or place in seats to accommodate personal devices for better viewing, that would b amazing. No more neck cricks."
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Temperature on plane was way too hot"
Pros: "Sweet and short flight."
Pros: "Flight crew very attentive."
Cons: "Condition of bathroom at front."

Pros: "Flight crew humour"
Pros: "Good flight plenty of water."
Cons: "Very nice. Nothing"
Pros: "The friendly company of stranded passengers before and after boarding and crew who did their best not to get rattled."
Cons: "It took so long to get home and it is a long trip anyway."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "All good! No complaints!"
Pros: "Re-booked on Westjet after my WOW airlines was cancelled. Didn't know what to expect - pleasantly surprised, Great service from top to bottom leaving Gatwick Airport. Will make them my top preference in searching future flights out that way."
Cons: "Nothing - the entire experience (check-in, flight, deplaning) exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "The staff are super friendly. The prices are good and the travel times and locations are convenient and what we were looking for."
Cons: "Checking in was a bit of a pain - there was a WJ staffer helping us with the self serve kiosk. She obviously didn't know how to use it, and just hit the continue button and kept asking us to fill in the personal information on the screens. It was funny to laugh at afterwards but not at the time."
Pros: "Easy access to website. Flight was great and crew was very accommodating, friendly and hospitable."
Cons: "I had to try several times to pick the flight I wanted since the site seemed to refer me back to a flight I did not want. I ended up having to cancel the wrong flight on the carrier’s website after booking two incorrect flights. Everything went very well after that."
Pros: "WestJet was Great again.... Boarded promptly, and a smooth flight, with friendly staff"
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "Fast cheap flight"
Pros: "Very friendly flight staff; the peal of laughter throughout the plane that ensued when the staff offered us the inflight magazine in our seat pocket as an alternative to the defunct entertainment system."
Cons: "This is an old plane with an old entertainment system. No surprise it broke. At least it wasn't an engine."
Pros: "Order ahead food was easy and selection was tasty"
Cons: "Bring a book! Apps to have your entertainment on individual devices is a bad idea."
Pros: "Crew and staff very helpful and friendly. Everything on time. Safety considerations."
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "Super fast boarding and check in! Arrived early"
Cons: "The q400 is a terrible aircraft."
Pros: "Everything was streamlined and easy to understand. We made it on time and the staff were friendly, especially with our young son who is one Ana half."
Cons: "You have to pay for a meal even though it’s a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The people were all very helpful."
Cons: "The system was down. Had to stand in line for an hour. I had carry on and Global entry. But couldn't get my boarding pass without seeing an agent."
Pros: "All good !"
Cons: "Like to see direct flight to Kelowna"
Pros: "WestJet was fine."
Cons: "If you are going to code share, maybe work out the kinks in the system that should link the itinerary to the partner airline."
Pros: "Pleasant flight food and entertainment no used crew helpful and courteous comfort ... seats too close as always but plenty of bin space due to them asking people to check carry on luggage for free ...great idea"
Cons: "You had to have a computer / cell phone to see the movies. In their next fleet of aircraft Westjet should go back to big screens or back of seat screens and have the computer option there as well."
Cons: "Didn't know I needed to download Westjet app before the flight and bring my own device"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Cranky passenger"
Pros: "Drinks and snacks several times! Lots of movies!"
Cons: "Would prefer actual tv entertainment. Not having to have your own device or rent one."
Pros: "Amazing to get out of Winnipeg on time and arrive early. Had a nice exit row and lots of leg room. No complaints."
Pros: "Direct, Regina to Orlando Departure and arrival times (9:00 am and 2:30 pm) Price"
Cons: "Maybe a few more free food options for a 4 hour flight"
Online check in the night before made boarding easy. Free check in of luggage at the gate was also offered. Crew offered drinks twice. Wish they would give food like they used to instead of selling it. On board entertainment was good & worked well. Surprised that it was a full flight but it was comfortable. Boarding and deplaning was organized and check in luggage came out promptly!
Pros: "The crew were friendly & made us feel welcomed"
Pros: "Air Canada's fights to and from Regina to Milwaukee are way to long"
Cons: "Air Canada not even offering a snack on a 3 hour flight now. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."
Cons: "Plane delayed for 1 hour...lots of kids, very crowd"
Pros: "The empty seat beside me"
Cons: "Poor connections for movies and wifi- broken"
Cons: "Movie options were extremely limited"
Pros: "Amazing staff, service, comfort, food, entertainment! Already looking forward to our flight home - the cabin crew was hilarious and so great to have onboard. Love it!"
Cons: "Only thing I can complain about is that we sat on the ground for over an hour and left 1.5 hours late. We had a layover before our connecting flight so it wasn’t a problem for us."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket I thought it was air Canada but it was air Canada rouge so no food no entertainment tried to download air Canada app but took about an hour to get 10 percent done so flew with no entertainment no drinks no food nothing. Boarding was a pain had a three year old also had to pay extra 50 dollars for my baggage. Typical air Canada nonsense. Would not use them again."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours on New Years Eve and in return, we were given $10 food vouchers... only problem was most things were closed in the airport because it was New Years, and what was open the $10 barely covered it. In flight entertainment wasn’t working properly and frequently cut out. Eventually gave up."
Cons: "My flight was at 6 am and I fell ill with strep throat the morning of. I had not gotten flight cancellation insurance so I had no choice but to board the flight while feeling sick. The illness got rapidly worse and before I knew it I had a fever and was nauseous and dizzy and was overall feeling terrible. For the first half of the flight I tried to sit through it, but it became too much as I was squished into a middle seat and was overheating extremely due to the fever and started to get overwhelmed and felt claustrophobic. At this point I decided that I could not wait out the rest of the flight in this middle seat so I went to talk to the flight attendants to ask to be moved to a seat with more space. Now, I had not slept at all the night before (because I had to take the bus to the airport at 2 am) and felt very overwhelmed with being so sick and so when I went to talk to the flight attendant I started to cry and told them I was feeling claustrophobic and wished to be moved to a seat with more space because I was very ill. I emphasized that I was sick and had to repeat this many times, but the flight attendants seemed to think I was having an anxiety episode even though I repeated many times that I was very sick. It took them HALF AN HOUR to find me a new seat. I spent this time standing while I felt extremely dizzy like I was going to pass out. I feel the situation was handled very poorly. Two of your flight attendants started trying to counsel me on anxiety and seemed to completely disregard the fact that I was extremely ill and that was causing me to feel claustrophobic (to put things in perspective, I spent the next 3 days unable to move from my dads couch, unable to eat anything, and had to be taken to the hospital because I could not even drink water). The illness started right before I was getting on the plane and at the time of boarding I had no idea how quickly it would get so bad. As an example of how poorly this was handled, one of the flight attendants handed me a pen and told me to "name my anxiety, and why I was feeling anxious and to write reasons that this may make me feel anxious" it was ridiculous. Here I was, about to pass out I was so dizzy and it took them half an hour to find me a new seat (I understand that the flight was very full but there were empty seats available). I kept repeating, I feel dizzy, I feel nauseous, I'm very sick, I need to sit down, please find me a seat and they spent half an hour trying to give me a therapy session on anxiety. I am extremely unhappy with this experience and feel like it was dealt with terribly by the staff on board. When a customer says I'm very ill with a fever and it's causing them to feel claustrophobic and they need to be moved to a seat with more room, the staff should not spend half an hour trying to counsel them on anxiety while the customer is standing there about to pass out. This experience made me feel like I wish to avoid traveling with Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "The flight was good and the crew excellent."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for an hour waiting for a hanger and couldn't get up as we were on the runway."
Pros: "Affordable and timely."
Cons: "Hard seats, no room for carry-on luggage, and not even a free cracker."
Pros: "It made it to Athens smoothly & on time."
Cons: "There was no movies available to watch. Flight attendant said we need the app to watch movies however there wasn't enough time to download the app before the flight took off to download it in time."
Pros: "My good friend John came to pick me up even though it arrived at 1 am instead of 9 pm....."
Cons: "The wait for plane to be ready. There was a technical problem which delayed it. They gave us a discount coupon and I don't even know what kind of discount we will get. They should have just given us a free one way for a similar route."
Pros: "Flignt from Honolulu to Vancouver delayed. Return flight also delayed."
Cons: "Flight cancelled until the next day and then delayed again without sufficient notice . Air canada hasn't offered us anything worth making up missing a day out of our vacation"
Cons: "Flight delayed, did not leave Vancouver until after we were supposed to land in Portland. No tv or wifi"
Pros: "A special thanks to flight attendant Var for the superb service on this flight."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I avoid rouge at all costs and recommend others to avoid it too. I hate the lack of screens and zero complimentary food. A pretzel would impress me but I relate air canada rouge to delta or united and always have weak experiences compared to other aircrafts."
Pros: "Thanks for keeping us posted on the updates"
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."
Pros: "The in-flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "We avoid Air Canada and after this flight that will continue. First, they wanted $400 for the return trip to guarantee that my wife and I sit together. To guarantee that we sit together and that it would be safe for her 28in femurs it would be $800. Then the Orlando leg of our trip was delayed by two hours, guaranteeing that we would miss our connecting flight. They would not make arrangements prior to departure, nor would they respond to any enquiries from any of the passengers about their connecting flight arrangements. On arrival in Toronto, as we pulled up to the gate, they announced that they had found alternate connections for all but 4 passengers that we would get more information outside. There was nobody at the gate. There was noone at customs. We did not know if we had a connecting flight, or if we had to pick-up our luggage. Nobody from Air Canada gave us any information. We asked security at baggage if we should go on to connecting flights or wait for luggage and were only informed that once we leave the baggage area we couldn't return. When we got to the terminal entrance for connecting flights, we were told (by security) that we could not enter without a new boarding pass. THEY directed us to the line for Air Canada (no indication if we were in the right line, but other people in the line were in the same situation. We finally got to the counter and were informed that we were on the last flight of the night and given boarding passes. Thank heavens that my credit card has priority pass membership. Delays happen. The way Air Canada handles it turned a minor annoyance into a maximum-stress situation. We already avoid Air Canada because they took away almost 50,000 travel miles for not flying for one year. We will work even harder to avoid them in the future."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to mechanical issues. Can't be helped, but made for a long day."
Pros: "It was on time and very smouth"
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable - no legroom. Flight comong home delayed several hours because of maintenance problem."
Pros: "Check in was smooth"
Cons: "I find it unacceptable that 1 bag was free on the inbound flight, but I had to pay extra to check the same bag on my return."
Cons: "One attendant walked by offering water - nice that they offered water in the middle of the flight. But she didn't even give customers the chance to raise their hands bec she walked by so fast saying "water, water, water." I wasn't even dozing off and I couldn't catch her and I was sitting by the aisle. Dirty bathrooms with doors that don't lock - not just one particular stall but more than one stall."
Pros: "It boarded and arrived on time."
Cons: "There was no snack unless you paid for one."
Cons: "cost of luggage fees. You collect excessive fees for luggage and when you loose the luggage or it arrives on a later flight you should refund the fee. I was on a hunting trip and my firearm didn't come in on my flight necessitating my rebooking a later flight. You didn't mind collecting an extra $100 to handle the gun case but you didn't deliver on your end. I will never fly to Canada again on Air Canada."
Cons: "They need a better system for boarding. It took forever to get us all on board. And it was hard to hear which zone they were boarding since the passengers were so noisy. there should've been lanes for the different zones so they could usher us all in orderly. It was a chaotic mess without lanes. There was no entertainment if you didn't download their app onto your electronic device. No snacks were offered either. I didn't pay for a meal but it would've been nice to have some pretzels or something like that. The controls for the lights, and attendant call button were on the hand rest. It was very uncomfortable since it was a raised section, and more than once I turned on the light without meaning to do so. I won't fly Air Canada Rouge ever again, if I can help it."
Pros: "This was a horrible experience throughout. From the start, we were told to board but left standing on the jetway for 15-20 minutes before we were allowed to board the plane and take our seats. Went downhill from there."
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No space, "Entertainment" had one use their own device but no place to power the device. Audacity to charge $10 to use a rental device for entertainment when other airlines provide free of charge. No air-circulation on board. Screaming children the ENTIRE 6 hour flight. No complimentary snacks."
Cons: "at atlanta airport i was refused to board the flight because it was aircanada and i wasnt told anything about that infact i had to pay 130$ extra for rebooking my ticket wihout any reason and the airline person didnt talk properly it wasnt my fault that i was given a air canada flight i booked a turkish airline flight,infact i had to wait at the airport for like 24 hours!contact me back asap this is the worst ever experience i have had with you!i have been booking with you guys for a long time.i hope to hear from you soon!"
Pros: "Price was good and flights arrived timely"
Cons: "It's a typical new aircraft that is crowded when full"
Pros: "The whole experience was excellent."
Pros: "That there were no delays."
Pros: "From boarding to disembark net was ok"
Cons: "No refreshment on board"
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Cons: "From LA to Toronto & Montreal back to LA, was a 4-6 hr flight where they don't feed you or give you blankets. When I asked why blankets are not available, the crew said, "because that's all what we'll be doing is handing out blanket." The crew should realize that providing comfort for their passengers is a huge part of their service they should provide. This was my first time flying with air canada and I was very disappointed. Air Canada will definitely not be on my top airlines to fly next time."
Cons: "Engine noise unbearably loud French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. Everything was great but they stood out to me and my experience."
Pros: "Entertainment selections and accommodations for not being able to make my connecting flight do to delays were good."
Pros: "Wonderful crew, enjoyable flight!"
Cons: "Neighbor on flight was clueless to the rest of the world & left light on, video on, and used me as a pillow"
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: "Because they had horrible service"
Cons: "The plane was filthy. The leg room seemed smaller than usual. The crew wasn't very friendly."
Pros: "I'm happy the flight did continue and I arrived late but not cancelled. I have had numerous bad experiences with AC in last couple years with cancellations, being bumped, flight changes - you name it. A mechanically sound plane is worth the wait"
Cons: "Arriving to the airport thinking flight is 30 delayed only to have been dropped off and then find out I have a 2 hour delay. I live 3 minutes from the airport and then I have to sit in airport for 2 extra hours."
Pros: "There was nothing to like because I did not fly on Air Canada to Barcelona."
Cons: "For an unexplained reason, our first flight was delayed 45 plus minutes in Phoenix while cargo was moved from the forward cargo bay to the aft cargo bay. This caused us to miss our connection in Toronto. Air Canada then proceeded to rebook us on a flight leaving 2 days later. After an extended period of time, they finally rescheduled us for a flight to a different city in Europe and we had to catch another flight from there our final destination, Barcelona. The total additional travel time was extended by approximately 8 hours, causing us to lose the better part of our first day."
Pros: "The process from start to finish was very well coordinated. Crew kept passengers informed of situation as they arises due to matters beyond their control while maintaining the integrity of Air Canada."
