Pros: "Apart from the boarding process the trip was great."
Cons: "The airport had us board at a gate where we had to go outside in the rain without any warning. Many of the pasengers were families with small children and dressed for the sunshine and no coats or other protection from the elements. There was no warning from WestJet or the airport in the process from booking to checkin."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1hr"
Pros: "Quiet flight. Great landing. Excellent staff on board"
Pros: "Emergency exit seat row had so much room!"
Cons: "Chairs are not comfy and no entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was fabulous."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hard."
Pros: "We got stuck in a line up to check in and the line was over 2 hours long and by the time it was our turn, it was too close to departure ( an hour to go) and they wouldn’t let us board so we didn’t get to take our flight at all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 hours and i received a 15 dollar voucher as compensation. Westjet can pound sand."
Pros: "Always great people st Westjet! Flown with other airline providers, they dont give what Westjet does. Great service everytime!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great"

Pros: "We left on time and arrived on time! That's all I really ask!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was fine."
Pros: "Friendly service. On time"
Cons: "Not a direct flight"
Cons: "A little cold"
Pros: "Flying with west jet is always a great experience. The crew always make you feel welcome."
Cons: "They didn’t offer coffee on this particular flight."
Pros: "The crew was kind when they gave me an extra bag of pretzels to calm my rolling stomach on a flight that while over 4 hours long does qualify for even a decent sized bag of pretzels."
Cons: "I think the seats on westjet are ridiculous, are they smaller than other planes. I was practically in the lap of the person next to me. I'm 5'7 and I couldn't even rest my head on my knees to stop the extreme motion sickness. I couldn't even finish my flight today because I couldn't stand the nausea and I couldn't rest in a seat 2 sizes too small for a regular sized person. I had to lay down and when it didn't subside I had to find accommodation. I will never fly with westjet again. But thanks you know for the pretzels."
Pros: "The luggage was taken good care of"
Cons: "There wasn’t any complimentary gluten free snacks :3"
Pros: "Very spacious. Not an overfull flight Seems like they offer a lot"
Cons: "The wifi is paid.. no TVs"
Cons: "No headsets Ran out of several of the food items -- I was in row 10 and they served from the front.... A bit disorganized boarding process but it was Mexico ... Comfort? The seats are way too crowded, and the guy in front of me put his seat all the way back so it was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight was good but it was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The hour delay was an incomvience."
Cons: "Flight crew arrived late delaying take off"
Pros: "Short, but sweet flight"
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: "Selection of entertainment good."
Cons: "Last minute seat changes at loading time. Seats must have been randomly selected because couples previously seated together and on the same locator number were now separated. Many of the couples and family members were left to work with other travellers who were facing the same situation. Families with children?"
Pros: "Very good chicken baha salad meal but expensive."
Cons: "Had to change seats a few times to get a screen and sound that would work. Screens tgat had streaks or flicker and/Or sound that was dead or staticy.."
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."
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: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Equipment problems, flight delayed and equipment changed, bumped from a decent (preselected seat) to the back row next to the toilet. I respect mechanical and other problems happen and are not always in the control of the airline, but the customer experience certainly is"
Cons: "West Jet connectivity would not work for my phone or ipad. There weren't able to fix the service."
Pros: "Carousel number although we only had carry-on"
Cons: "Sat be side large man. Took up too much space."
Pros: "Overall flight and connections were good. Board process was smooth and flight departed and arrived on time. Watch for baggage delays when arriving in Fort McMurray as they can sometimes be excessive. No entertainment provided on the smaller planes but most people have some form of entertainment with them."
Pros: "A short haul flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Aisle seat and the crew was great!"
Pros: "West Jet employees for the most part went the extra mile to ensure eveyones comforts, needs and safety. The booking with Kayak was a recommendation from a friend who I can't thank enough. Made what was an uncomfortable journey much easier."
Cons: "the seats are a bit confining."
Pros: "I really appreciated the leg room that we had on all our flights. The seating was most comfortable. Staff most friendly."
Cons: "It was crowded on the flight, fully booked"
Pros: "It was on time and short"
Pros: "the connection time in Calgary was short, so overall the trip was verily quick. Generally, the flight was good, clean plane, good services."
Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "Friendly relaxed crew. Overall organized and efficient."
Cons: "Both flights were late"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
On this particular flight, the staff were quite unmotivated, the seat legroom was adequate, other than that the flight was uneventful.
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything is too cramped. The sound on the entertainment unit is terrible."
Pros: "Wasn't able to get my seats ahead of time, but was lucky to be put in an aisle seat."
Cons: "It would be very helpful if the person at the counter would remind International travelers to make sure that they get their VAT receipts stamped at the border/passport agent."
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: "Quick and organized airport and boarding"
Cons: "Old plane uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew and pilots were great"
Cons: "Dinner was just okay"
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: "Mostly everything"
Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."
Pros: "Nice clean plane! No luggage lost!"
Cons: "We could not check in 24 hours prior to our flight = we were unable to upgrade our seats = 6’4” husband with bakers cysts behind knees had more discomfort for 5 hours."
Pros: "We arrived alive."
Cons: "The water lines on the plane froze. The flights were delayed, but the staff still made us que up and stand in line for two hours."
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Pros: "Friendly and quiet crew! Good, because the only thing I could do on the flight was sleep."
Cons: "Was not told to download entertainment application until onboard and out of range for the wifi. They also didn't mention having ipads to rent, not sure if they were available."
Pros: "Just I had flight."
Cons: "When I got bording pas I don't have sate number and zone number. when I ask many times just they told me wait.....I had many flights from different air lines but I didn't saw like that."
Pros: "The crew on board the plane was as good as can be expected. They were polite and tried to be helpful."
Cons: "From the time of booking the flight, we tried to sort out our profiles, provide passport and KTN, and frequent flyer info, as requested when we booked. Website problems were numerous, from being kicked off multiple times, to refusing to accept my info. I tried numerous times to call on the phone since the web site didn't work, but either didn't get through or was directed back to the web site. Eventually, I reached someone that told me it would be best to just sort it out at the airport. At the airport, I was told I should have set things up ahead of time. In the end, two of us traveling together, with work to do together over the course of the 13 hour flight, ended up sitting on opposite sides of the plane, and didn't get fed because they ran out of food. This shouldn't happen to anyone, but having paid for premium economy seats, you can imagine I was even angrier. We brought this up with a customer service rep in person when we landed and were told that she had no power to do anything and that we should call when we got home. And just to top things off, when I realized I couldn't get work done, I tried watching a movie and learned that the audio jack on my entertainment system was broken."
Pros: "The cree"
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and kind"
Cons: "6 hour flight delay missed a whole day of vacation when we called customer service we were redirected to a adult sex hotline by your staff all we got was a 10 dollar voucher for our trouble never flying air Canada again"
Pros: "The flight attendant helped me find my gate which wad nice seeing I didn't have a long layover."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, flight was delayed, in the back row so couldn't recline seat, sat right next to bathroom, and the only attendant was busy all it took a long time to get her attention."
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: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Cons: "Customer Service was horrible"
Pros: "Good flight once we got on board."
Cons: "Plane was about an hour late taking off, seems the maintenance guy lives 45 minutes from the airport and we all had to wait on him to get there to look at a paint chip on the nose, which took about a minute. They might want to have someone on hand."
Pros: "Take off was on time. Boarding was orderly and the flight an landing were smooth,"
Cons: "The closeness of the seats was unpleasant. For an early morning flight a cup of coffee or juice is not enough. a few crackers would have been welcome, especially since the stores open a little later."
Pros: "We were delayed a little over an hour (on the field) before take-off because of information from Toronto that fog was delaying the landing time of the planes. The crew handled this excellently by making sure that we were made comfortable and the pilot gave us several updates as he got the information about take-off for Toronto. On the flight to New York on September 28th, I experienced my first landing where not even a tiny bump was felt when the plane touched the ground."
Cons: "An international flight, yet no food, and had to purchase beverages and ear buds."

Pros: "service on craft was exccellent, friendly, enough time for the travel too."
Cons: "stupid automatic kiosk, they force us to take it even it wont work because of my name is too long. Have to wait in line and get bypass when using kiosk. Damn it we are in 2016, can you have smarter computer? I mean, I don't have a first name with 1,500 characters in it, when you FORCE us to take it, can it be useful one time?. And, the check-in was terrible improvising."
Cons: "There was no complimentary checked luggage. Not impressed because usually this is only done by the cheap budget airlines not a national airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I hate the new policy where you have to pay extra to reserve any seat whatsoever. I got stuck in the emergency exit row, with no right arm rest, which made the flight very uncomfortable. My earbuds supplied by air canada were of the poorest quality, and I could barely hear the movie. Finally, when it was time to order food, there were hot meals listed on the menu, but the flight crew had to check to see if they were available."
Cons: "1. Flight delayed for 2 hours 2. Lost our luggage 3. Luggage tracking is useless 4, So far 24 hours passed and they could not track our 4 bags"
Pros: "Flight and attendants great! A second offering of coffee would have been appreciated!"
Cons: "Lines were confusing to me. Kiosk machines for boarding passes clogged lines. Only 3 staff working security lines after a long weekend! 3 sets of married couples that I knew of couldn't be seated together! Airport personnel not very helpful and rather cranky!"
Pros: "All of the staff were upbeat, helpful and patient"
Pros: "Quality of food was pretty mediocre. Of course I am comparing this with airlines like KLM, Emirates or Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "Upon arrival at Madrid we found our suitcase in the checked luggage was badly damaged at two places. Who do we request for damages?"
Pros: "Movies were good. Landing was good."
Cons: "Ventilation was not great. And the Wrap was awful."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Pros: "Actually a very good flight, the flight was delayed by less than a half hour, but was really no bother. Slept very well and had enough leg room."
Cons: "The food was not even close to good or even average."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, plenty of overhead space for suitcase despite being the last boarding group"
Cons: "Information about passport presentation inconsistent with instructions received at online checkin. Seats are small and uncomfortable.Flight attendants monopolized aisles for more than half the 4 hr flight. Weren't flexible about allowing people to use the restroom and move back to seats."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Pros: "All services and most of all excellent customer services."
Pros: "Air Canada is a first rate provider. Their air rates are better than most other airlines, and the value for the money is exceptional."
Cons: "The plane was SO, SO COLD. The entire plane of people were miserable. I literally shivered all the way from Toronto to Istanbul, huddled next to the stranger next to me, who was also freezing. It was unreal how cold it was. People kept asking the staff to turn the A/C down, to no avail. I couldn't wait to get off that flight."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, staff were organized and efficient, luggage came out fast"
Pros: "Crew very attending, helpful."
Cons: "First time flying air canada and flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."
