There were endless delays on all 3 flights, and there was little to no communication concerning the delay as it was happening, on our last flight (YYZ to SJU). One flight attendant was rude; needs retraining.
I would have liked to have been able to buy some food.
Long delay die to pet mix up. Also bags took forever to get to carousel
Pros: "Ran on time. Bags came out in a timely manner."
Cons: "Like all airlines it would be nice if there was an extra inch between the seats. Also, unfortunately the video wasn't working."
Pros: "They weren't fussy about carry on."
Pros: "Roomie seat. Professional curdious crew. Fast smooth flight. Westjet connect access for entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great, the seats suck."
Pros: "flight attendants were very good & compassionate for a blind passenger."
Cons: "Check-in crew on the ground needs an attitude adjustment. They were more interested in high 5ing one another than opening up to take care of waiting customers. the service culture was lacking."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working. I did not have anything to watch my entire 6 hours flight from Toronto to San Jose California. My connecting flight/airline was changed on the day of my flight. Not really a problem as the time was the same."
Pros: "Very nice crew, good snack and drinks."
Cons: "LGA, the start was delay because of traffic jam...we spent 1 hr in the plane taxing."
Pros: "Very comfortable. I was impressed with seat comfort, especially nice after being in cattle class with another airline on a 12 hour flight across the Pacific."
Cons: "It would have been nice for WJ to have an earlier flight from Vancouver to Winnipeg. But I understand it depends on demand."
Pros: "Always great people st Westjet! Flown with other airline providers, they dont give what Westjet does. Great service everytime!!"
Pros: "Arriving early!"
Cons: "Taking off late."
Cons: "I miss the wedding party I was the bridesmaid"
Pros: "Crew very kind and smily. Very punctual."
Cons: "Prices ridiculous, one coors light 7dollars and with 7 dollars you buy 12 coors light in Mexico!!!. Food really bad and prices worse. No entertainment."
Pros: "Always pleasant to find that in an 'ordinary' seat my knees are not embedded in the seat in front of me. The USB power at the seat is important - I know everybody has it now, but still worth saying."
Cons: "Elbow crunch by a passing service cart is an unpleasant way to awaken from a doze. Is there some way that service people can be a bit more aware of (living) obstacles?"
Pros: "Crew was nice enough and there was more leg room than on some flights I've been on."
Cons: "The power outlets didn't work and it was a long flight so my phone died and there was 0 entertainment provided, made for a long, boring flight. Ended up trying to sleep most of the time and missed the food service. The plane was also weirdly cold."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Pros: "We upgraded to Plus when we checked in and it was totally worth it. Extra space, food, drink. It was great!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "I think for a flight of that duration a light meal should be served."
Cons: "Economy too cramped."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"
Pros: "staff was unfriendly. no options for entertainment that don't cost. no blankets to keep warm. i understand airlines need to make money, but they're making it much less enjoyable. on the upside, my flight down had incredible staff who treated me and my mother very well. sometimes, people make all the difference ;)"
Cons: "the 40 minute delay in toronto.not so bad in middle of day but when the delay means we get home at 1:00am this is not so good"
Pros: "The flight was good but it was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The hour delay was an incomvience."
Pros: "All good,a little delay in my transfer as a result of original plane engine problem ,however they rectified that in a reasonable time frame. I will fly with you again no problem."
Pros: "Very kind and patient with seniors using wheelchair assist. She will only travel WJ when possible! Thank you."
Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."
Pros: "Crew & direct flight"
Cons: "Food selection & entertainment"
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: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"

Pros: "Crew was very nice, a good selection of entertainment and comfortable seating."
Cons: "Having to wait in the plane for an hour prior to takeoff due to a lock issue with the washroom."
Pros: "Boarding agents were welcoming and helpful. They offer to take an earlier flight. Check-in process fast and easy. They delayed the connection in Toronto, so We did not miss our flight."
Cons: "We had to wait about 2 hours in the plane before take off and 30 min. after landing because of weather and a lack of efficient communication. That was a very frustrating and exhausting flight. Not enough space and on westjet connect on board."
Pros: "That the flight was on time"
Cons: "That the person doing our pre boarding lost my partners visa"
Pros: "The view of the ocean and all the lakes and ponds coming into St. John's."
Cons: "You don't have any good connections from New Brunswick to St. John's."
Cons: "We flew from Toronto - Abbotsford with a stop in Edmonton. There was a 1 hour layover in Edmonton before the Edmonton - Abbotsford flight left. Unfortunately, the plane arrived in Edmonton 30 minutes late, and rather than wait 5 minutes for the passengers to disembark from the Toronto plane and board the Abbotsford plane, WestJet decided to leave all those passengers behind. There were no other flights available until the evening, and we were stuck for 8 hours at the Edmonton Airport before we were finally given a flight to Abbotsford. Never again will I book with WestJet."
Pros: "West Jet left on time. ."
Cons: "A 4 1/2 hour flight turned into close to 5 hours. Considering that a person has to be there well ahead of time, go through customs etc. a cup of coffee and 2 cookies and no entertainment anymore, it's a long and boring flight ."

Pros: "Excellent staff. I wish american carriers would take lessons from them."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a 5 year-old boy who had a hard time sitting and his mother had nothing for him to do. He kept kicking me, by accident, and was disruptive and noisy. Finally I decided on a counting game with his m &m's and that lasted for about half an hour. I know that West Jet had mo control over this situation."
Pros: "the crew are always great. the flight was on time and fast!"
Cons: "the whole "put your own tags on the bags and load them". we spent 5-10 minutes trying to figure it out. There was someone that came over to assist us and it was still not user friendly. there were not in flight television system. I guess I am spoiled now."
Cons: "Having to pay to watch a movie and ear plugs"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
