Boarding in Toronto is an example of good boarding. On the other hand one flight attendant on the flight WS 652 wasn’t in good mood and she didn’t even try to hide it. Overall good trip.
On time. Flight was delayed. I think was poor planning on behalf of west jet. Flight crew had to go from one plane to next walking across the airport. They should have planned their timing better.
Took a 60 min flight to have no crew assist us to the gate and wait on the plane for over an hour!
Not only was my bag not on the flight. They didn't notify me until 7pm where my bag was. My flight was at 10:35am. I was left for 2 days without a toothbrush and lotion, face cream and charger and clothing. I still haven’t actually received my bag but they say it’s on the next flight. Major hassle. So rude that they must have known right away my bag wasn’t on the flight but they failed to let anyone know. I thought my luggage was stolen at the baggage claim. Major stress. Messing up my vacation. They want me to submit receipts to compensate for me having to to buy replacement stuff but the damages were more than just having to buy a new toothbrush. It was the stress and anxiety that was the major problem.

Cons: "The reasons that I book with Westjet are that the attendants joke with each other, appear to really enjoy their jobs, and provide over the top customer service. On this flight no one was jovial or smiling, the garbage sat on our trays for the majority of the flight. The attendants spoke to each other more than the passengers. Very disappointing!"
Pros: "It was great experience once again. I always travel with WestJet as it is always on time."

Pros: "Price, staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no padding, very hard. At Pearson you have to walk about half an hour to get to West Jet gate."
Flight canceled and rescheduled three times. The messed up the rescheduling and there wasn’t a customer service desk at the airport to help resolve. The rescheduled flight had such a tight layover that my baggage didn’t make it, and now I have no luggage. This after waiting an hour after deplaning with the rest of the passengers for our bags are baggage claim before the first bag came out. Again, no customer service counter. When I call, the IVR keeps saying go to the customer service counter at the airport, which they told me doesn’t exist at the airport, a frustrating catch 22. No one has answered after 20 min on hold. I will not fly with air Canada again.
Flight canceled literally last minute without any notice in advance
Communication needs to be improved. YUL was training a new x-ray operator. It took 45 minutes for 8 people to go through the security line. The airport was understaffed. Notifications that the Air Canada flight was delayed was not communicated to passengers waiting at the gate until after take-off time lapsed -twice. There are not enough Air Canada gate agents to staff counters. Boarding was slow as passengers who had complicated “issues” with documentation were dealt with one at a time instead of being “triaged”, holding up the single line of boarding passengers. The flight itself was fine. No one employee is at fault. There are systematic issues with Air Canada management that impact the customer experience. These problems represent management and leadership failures.
Cons: "The plane was delayed due to waiting for people to clear customs."
Pros: "Movie options were good. Nothing else."
Pros: "Air Canada is always a great travel experience."
Cons: "The food is terrible. It's the worst I've had from any airline."
Pros: "Crew was responsive"
Cons: "Late departure, sitting on the tarmack for hours, most uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Quick boarding and takeoff"
Cons: "The sound connections for the in flight entertainment was faulty. Bring your own device would be better. Seats were uncomfortable, they need replacing."
Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
Pros: "Exit seating with more leg room."
Cons: "No power plugs in a 4h+ flight is not acceptable. That should be standard for every passengers. Unclean seats. General abrasiveness from some of the staff."
Pros: "Free soft drinks /tea On time nice staff Clean cabin well organized"
Cons: "No free food Completely booked. no video monitors"
Cons: "flight cancelled. had to go down to ticketing. rebooked given a $10 food voucher and told we would get a hotel room when we got to Toronto since we were getting in real late because of the delay"
Pros: "Movie, but not a bit of food that we didn't have to pay for except for a tiny bag of pretzels."
Cons: "Not v99j.j on direct flight from Calgary to Toronto on our way home ad we were on our way out."
Pros: "The extra $50 seats were roomy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no one knew why!... Plane had been sitting ready at the airport for hours. Novice flight attendants, they each picked on different things others missed just before them. No consistency, seats left reclined during takeoff and landing for example. One way there was drink service once even though it was a smooth flight and the return had drink service twice even though it was bumpier! Entertainment does NOT work on androids, it is NOT the AirCanada app they tell you to download prior to the flight, it's an AirCanadaRouge.pk file that needs to be downloaded in flight! Which means we're stuck paying for the iPad and of course only with cc because there's no wifi for debit cards.... AC needs to stop this insanely mediocre and yet expensive monopoly."
Pros: "Crew is always courteous"
Cons: "I barely made it on time because my prior flight was delayed"
Pros: "We had a trip planned for Las Vegas on the Wednesday following the sad and tragic shooting at the Mandalay Bay hotel. We were planning to be at the Luxor next door. Because of this proximity to the horrible scene we could not see completing this trip. The Air Canada staff understood and accommodated our need change plans. They arranged for us to fly directly home rather than to our planned stop in Las Vegas."
Pros: "No built in entertainment systems. YES PLEASE. Built entertainment systems take up room, sometimes have screens that can't be turned off, and some generate a lot of heat. So glad they were removed. The built in streaming service is a much better solution. Crew was fine."
Cons: "Seats are just ridiculously close. This makes boarding take longer. I don't think emergency evacuation is feasible. Have seats this close been tested for evacuations? Knees-touching-the-seat-in-front close. Taller people can't sit with legs straight in front. Eat before your flight."
Cons: "Worst leg room I have ever seen and I fully over 20 + times a year!"
Pros: "I appreciated that the plane left as scheduled, had plenty of legroom, and was attended by professional and gracious personnel."
Cons: "THe previous flight that we took, on June 20th, from Las Vegas to Toronto, was cancelled at the last minute. As we had a tightly-scheduled flight to Amsterdam, we missed that connection. There was no notification given prior to the cancellation, just suddenly came up on the monitors at McCarren Airport. No explanation was offered. THe flight that we were transferred to arrived in Toronto too late to get us onto our Amsterdam flight, and so Air Canada personnel gave us vouchers for food and tried to book us a hotel room. We were ferried to 3 hotels, and turned away at all of them, an dwound up sleeping on the flor of the kid's area at TOranto Airport. we finally got to Amsterdam a day late.and had our trip upgraded to business class for our trouble. I have no quarrel with the treatment that we received from Air Canada personel. THey were very patient and gracious, in spite of a number of irate passengers in the same situation that we were in. However, the failure to have accomodations for stranded travelers was exemplary of poor planning on the part of administration, not personnel. I am really torn as to whether or not to use Air Canada again. WHen it is good, it is very good, but when iit is bad, it is the worst that I've ever experienced."
Pros: "It's Vegas, what's not t like!"
Cons: "Plane ride home after 4 nights in Vegas..."
Cons: "Even as a member and my status within the Aeroplan program (which I am allowed to have up to 3 bags checked free of charge) I was charged."
Cons: "Disgustlingly rowdy, drunk, loud, and vulgar passengers unchecked by the flight crew."
Pros: "Nothing. I spent the whole 5+ hour flight cursing (in my mind) the entire Air Canada executive team. This was my first, and will be my last trip on this horrible airline."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. I'm assuming that all Air Canada executives are either very short people, or they've never tested their product. I've never flown on such an absurdly uncomfortable airline seat configuration, and I fly over 100,000 miles a year worldwide (including discount airlines in China!). If you have long legs, and your flight is more that two hours, DO NOT fly Air Canada Rouge. You've been warned!"
Cons: "When I am willing to purchase overpriced food on a plane, please at least have what I would like from the menu. On my flight to Canada and from Canada to Las Vegas I ordered food and had to settle on what they had available because I was so hungry. As soon as I asked for food, the crew should know what is and isn't available. Food was ok, whoever shot the pictures for the menu did a fantastic job of making it look good. Chicken wrap was good."
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "I had a window seat and there really wasn't a lot of leg room because of how the body of the plane curves. Food was ok. Not a lot of elbow room to eat."
Pros: "It got to Vegas on time and my luggage was there, too."
Cons: "Rouge has less space per person than Spirit. I never thought that could be possible."
Pros: "I had leg room where I was seated. Short flight."
Cons: "I had to be moved a second time during my travel. No entertainment. So far, the most uncomfortable connection Ive had in my trip. The emergency door i was sitting next to was leaking water, which kinda worried me."
Cons: "Kayak failed to notify us of a change in our flight of four hours and change of route"
Pros: "I liked the flight"
Cons: "There was no space around your seats No free food or snacks offered, just soft drinks No big screens for watching movies Not enough bathrooms"
Pros: "Seats are confortable, meals good and the crew are very nice"

Arrived early for the flight at 6am in the morning and was told it wasn't going until 2.40pm that afternoon because of a maintenance issue. Was not notified, air canada said it was a non refundable ticket and I missed my meeting. Terrible service and they were not flexible at all. Only bought this new ticket because my existing ticket was not able to get me to my meeting on time, so it was a complete waste of money"
Pros: "I haven't flown in a while and used the USB and 120V outlet with was supplied."
Cons: "As the plane was changed, I needed to check my carryon bag as there wasn't enough space available."

Cons: "I have nothing to say about the flight, was good enough."
Cons: "Media player change wasn't advertised"
Pros: "good flight, no issues. Enthusiastic Air Canada rouge staff."
Cons: "The boarding format the people at the back of the plane board last therefor waiting for everyone to put there carry ins away and sit down creating a slower boarding"
Pros: "Got there safely."
Cons: "The seats are miserable small and uncomfortable. More options for snacks for the cost of the ticket!!!"
Cons: "Media entertainment selection"
Cons: "Bigger seats would've been better"
Pros: "The announcements for our flight was not good. When I asked the counter associate "if our flight was on time" she said yes. What she should have said was "yes we're boarding now". We almost missed out flight! Also once we were settled and was able to order our drinks, it took them so long to teturn"
Cons: "As soon as we got our drinks. We started descending which meant we has to drink fast. It was not enjoyable!"

Pros: "Comfort, service and entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "The staff was kind and flight was smooth"
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. I could barely bend down to get my bag from under the seat in front of me and I'm tiny. I can just imagine how bigger people felt."

Pros: "the service"
Cons: "the server"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, attendants were great."
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my tiny seat. They are small and awful."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great crew. Enjoyed the random jokes."
Cons: "Long taxing"
Cons: "The crew allowed an excessively foul smelling person on the plane who was obviously Intoxicated on some illicit drug and smelled so bad that it made the entire area unbearable."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "United Airlines for a change did a decent job flying back to LAS unlike our flight from BUF to EWR which got canceled and we had to drive to Newark which was not only disappointing but to witness customer service uncaring even more distressing."
Cons: "We may not choose UA for our family from now on. Quite a bit of confusion even when trying to reach customer service over phone, the hold time is 15 to 20 min?"
Pros: "We got let in first because we had a baby under 2. A stewardess felt bad for our seating at the end and gave us a free blanky for baby and a free shot for me."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. The back seating was horrible. One crew member made fun of my sister for walking too slow on the way out. Like seriously we were the last seats on plane and had a baby. So yes we were slow!!!"
Pros: "Kayak notified me of the delays before United. Crew was nice. Ramp agents worked hard to get everyone on board quickly"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour and 42 minutes. First delay notice too close to incoming aircraft arrival so you knew it wasn't an accurate adjusted departure time."
Pros: "The space in this seat I had, was awesome. The boarding crew was rather pleasant and I loved how my gate was right next to my next gate."
Cons: "The attitudes of the flight attendants on this particular flight; they seemed highly agitated, probably because they looked tired, but who knows? Their performance reflected their attitudes."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Got stuck with the last row of seats. I never previously had the last row for a flight but to be honest it was definitely the worst seats on the plane. What makes it worse was these were not tickets I bought last week but on united economy they only give you seat selection just days prior and no explanation as to why you are placed in a particular row. Stuck near the bathroom and the seats do not decline at all though they deceptively provide the button to recline your seats. Horrible experience and one more reason to not fly United."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to a nonsense delay from Charlotte. Arrived at the gate 1 minute after scheduled take off and the plane was gone. Not even an attempt to waiting as I ran, 5 months pregnant, through the airport. I was rebooked to arrive in Las Vegas at midnight. 12 hours after the original time. I bought a flight from Southwest. I will never fly united again"
Pros: "Crew was nice, did their best to help."
Cons: "14 hours late"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great customer service"
Pros: "I would like to give a rating lower than zero for this airline"
Cons: "Again a full flight and this time I was seated next to an Asian male. I'm deal thy allergic to fish and what did he bring to eat, yep you got it. While I know it's a right for him to do so, I spent the flight with puffed eyes and throat issues. Again, the flight was overbooked"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were unkind"
Pros: "United is always a great way to fly. The crew is always nice and even through my delayed flight back to Vegas the captain stood between the walkway and plane an apologies and spoke to everyone which was new for me. Thanks united flight 455 to Vegas from SFO 10:44.."
Pros: "I liked that it was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants are rude and cranky. The plane was hot and over booked."
Cons: "after transferring from terminal B after a long walk then another long walk to transfer to Terminal C and another walk to baggage claim for a 70 yr.old woman and no transport available is intolerable and unacceptable! It is so disgusting that I am a frequent flyer via United Airlines and getting more and more dissatisfied cause of the troubles I'm encounterring flying with United Airlines! I should think twice,the next time I'm booking with the airline for my next flight!"
Cons: "Time on planes"

Pros: "The view and legroom was nice."
Cons: "I collect disability each month so I am on a very tight budget. The Spanish speaking woman that pushed my wheelchair told me that I can bring my water bottles full of water through the metal detectors. I asked if she could take me somewhere to pour them out and refill them on the other side. They threw them away at the metal detector. So I had to buy a new bottle for my medicine that I have to take. You would think she would have got it by me carrying these bottles around but nope. She actually said to me that I can give her gratuity now if I wanted. I gave her $1. She then replied in a sarcastic voice " Thankyou you are soooo generous. I don't like feeling obligated to tip somebody because I am disabled and have a bullet in my head."
Pros: "It was nice. We were able to watch TV which made it go by quickly. Everyone was very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but not to long"
Pros: "Attention from crew."
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight, instead of a glass of coke or juice, I should get the whole can. Need an alternative to a cookie. some people have 'sugar problems'."
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "Two hours delayed two hours on the tarmac."
Pros: "The flight overall was great, easy to board and de-board, and a smooth process from start to finish."
