Pros: "Short and sweet."
Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Exit row, bringing on my own booze"
Cons: "Lots of things, the industry is broken"
Cons: "Like to have some reading materials"
Pros: "In flight live tv."
Cons: "Getting to the gate quicker after landing."
Pros: "All the staff from airport baggage area, boarding to during flight and then leaving were efficient and personal. Even the pilot spoke as a caring person."
Cons: "Storm at Toronto arrival resulted in a long delay in being able to pick up luggage which had visibly been exposed to dirt and moisture."
Cons: "One of the crew members seemed really bother by everything. She was not smiling or even looking at customers when handing drinks over."
Pros: "The crew was great, the seats suck."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, no snacks offered,"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then at the gate boarding didn’t start till 10 mins before take off. Took off almost an hour after the delayed take off time."
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Pros: "West jet always communicates"
Cons: "Waiting to board.. always a hassle"
Pros: "Great service and friendly employees!"
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: "The crew were friendly and worked to get us boarded quickly because it was cold outside on the tarmac. The flight was smooth with a good landing."
Cons: "WestJet’s WiFi, to allow passengers to connect to the WestJet entertainment app, was not available on this flight which was a surprise. I don’t always enjoy flying and have some anxiety, so entertainment like movies or shows helps get me through flights. This flight was harder because I didn’t know that option wouldn’t be available."
Pros: "We we’re late getting in from Halifax because of head winds. Walked from one plane to another and luggage arrived with us."
Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."
Pros: "We were on a Boeing 737-800 which had lots of legroom in economy seats. Great plane, and the pilot made up time on our flight. Arrived early. Crew was great."
Cons: "One flight attendant came through the cabin at the beginning of the flight with the offer to purchase food and that was that. Six and a half hours we got pretzels or cookies."
Pros: "Airport staff went above and beyond to get my mother through the airport. We had a tight transfer and they helped us make it to the gate on time."
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Baggage didn't get lost."
Cons: "Boarding gate attendant was rude. Announced boarding for infants, then got annoyed when me and my wife went up. Queue had formed for general boarding, she wanted to board that line first...for whatever reason. Onboard flight attendants were rude, I stood in the galley for 30 seconds to wait for my wife to change our baby in the washroom and was asked to move back to the cabin. Flight attendants were just eating their food back there, not working at the time."
Pros: "good value for money. Staff were helpful"
Cons: "A direct route from St John's to London."
Pros: "We upgraded our return flight to Plus. The extra space is great."
Cons: "Compared to our flight in, this was lacking a bit. We were only offered beverages one time, the flight attendants didn’t come to clear our waste. They were just sitting at the front in their seats and one was playing sudoku through a lot of the flight. If we hadn’t had such a great experience on the flight in, we may not have noticed the difference but this time it was noticably less attentive."
Pros: "On time. Efficient. No frills but perfectly fine!"
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay"
Pros: "The luggage was taken good care of"
Cons: "There wasn’t any complimentary gluten free snacks :3"
Pros: "Everything went well with the flight. There were some technical difficulties but nothing that was within West Jet's control."
Cons: "There was one crew member that was being really passive aggressive with a mom behind us who was just trying to keep her kids quite and happy. The other crew members were sympathizing with the mom, but this one woman was just being stubborn for what seemed like no reason. If the other crew members say something is ok, I see no reason why she had to be difficult other than being spiteful."
Pros: "Korean air is very efficient."
Cons: "We had to rent a car to get to Ottawa because West Jet had cancelled all their flights due to weather. All Air Canada flights were operating. We waited in line for 2 hours at the airport for West Jet to tell us that we needed to call them regarding a refund. We called them and were on hold for an hour and 45 minutes. Then we were told we had to call the travel agent...we on hold for 2 hours. We then called Korean air and they told us they couldn’t contact West Jet-no one knew what the value of the flight from Toronto to Ottawa was. We were only provided with a refund of $4 (for the taxes) when it cost us $280 to rent a car to get to Ottawa. I will never book a flight with West Jet again."
Cons: "- Booked using points & not offered the option to pre-order a meal - only non perishable food choices on board - flight delayed, crew at gate not well informed"
Pros: "I got to my destination with relatively no hassle and the crew were friendly and the coffee was good."
Cons: "There was NO entertainment at all.. no radio.. no movies.. no music channels nothing.. the fliplane did have WiFi.. but the catch was the WestJet app needs to be pre-downloaded. I’m"
Pros: "Friendly staff, superb landing in difficult weather."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. No WIFI or on board entertainment."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Everything went according to plan - left on time, arrived early, luggage arrived. What more can you ask? :)"
Pros: "Clean safe flight at affordable fares"
Cons: "Some in flight entertainment would be nice"
Pros: "The trip was uneventful........................................"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..............................................................."
Cons: "Transferring between distant terminals in LAX was a pain. I'm glad that I had a long layover between flights to make the journey that required leaving and re-entering security."
Pros: "On time, clean, friendly staff."
Cons: "Crew missed me with the drink cart."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped, uncomfortable."
Cons: "pilot should have informed us as soon as plane left gate that we would have extended delay due to missed take off window-we do expect some type of reimbursement!!"
Pros: "Comfort, friendliness and ease of travel with Westjet"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"
Pros: "The crew was patient and helpful and I know they were trying to make the best of a frustrating situation that was out of their control."
Cons: "There were multiple delays on my flight including us being boarded over a half hour late and then discovering the plane needed servicing so we had to be deboarded and delayed even further while they waited for a 2nd plane to become available."
Pros: "I arrived early to insure that I didn't run into the same troubles as my previous flight when I missed my flight through no fault of my own. This flight was much better organized and went without any issues."
Cons: "I like the concept of boarding a plane by zone however if Westjet doesn't enforce it then the zone loading is nothing but theory. Time to put it into practice Westjet."
Pros: "Friendly WestJet Staff."
Cons: "Long hike to the plane but the price of airport expansion."
Pros: "Finally sleeping in my bed in Montreal"
Cons: "Cramped seats , no elbow room , could not sleep , very difficult to sleep - muscle pain in shoulders lead to nerve impingement and numb arms . If westjet cared about their reviews they would offer an upgrade on my return to make a fair judgement again their product line"
Cons: "Staff was impatient and snappy when telling passengers to do something the first time. Smiles were forced and didn't seem genuine. Otherwise the flight arrived safely and early."
Pros: "Great atmosphere... entertaining staff, very pleasant."
Pros: "Luggage came fast. Car rental was great."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
The woman at check-in offered to put me in an earlier flight to Toronto. Was thrilled.
Air Canada should do their safety check then only invite the passengers on board
The crew were terribly disorganized. Constantly pushing carts back and forth like a bulldozer. Except this bulldozer was run by a 15 year old.
Cons: "Nothing significant"
Pros: "good leg room and seats staff was courteous"
Cons: "not even peanuts..."
Pros: "I landed safely"
Cons: "The infotainment system didn’t work. Headphones connection is faulty. Everything else was ok."
Pros: "The extra leg room that you have to pay for."
Cons: "Insufficient padding in the “premium” seats. No decent meal selections. The wrap that I had was primarily a tasteless piece of flat bread."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Sore all over and a lousy cough"
Cons: "Mix up with seating had boarding card reprinted twice and no one could explain why it happened. Staff otherwise were good."
Pros: "When I got sick, staff were friendly, helpful and soothing until the arrival of the ambulance. They made me feel much better during a very stressful situation."
Cons: "Air Canada declined to accommodate in next available flight even though the originating flight was on a single Ticket."
Pros: "Tv screens and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I paid 450 Euro for a return 2 hour flight & I didn't get a 20kg allowance. I don't expect a check in bag on a US or European budget airline but this is the national carrier. It's the first time I've paid for a checked bag in all my years flying with different national carriers. I.e. Qantas, Air New Zealand, Singapore to name a few. All in all. Air Canada charging like a national carrier but the baggage allowance policy of a budget airline. Not good enough in my opinion."
Pros: "No food given. Flight was delayed on the way there because a crew member called in sick -- making me miss part of my work conference. No entertainment on the way back to NL."
Cons: "Would have preferred Westjet but they do not offer a flight from NL to PEI."
Pros: "Japan airport departing on time."
Cons: "No backseat entertainment Entertainment streamed through Wifi which got cut off constantly. Seat is hard"
Pros: "Staff all friendly and helpful, both at desk and in plane. Seats were pretty comfortable with sufficient leg room (I am tall), but if you are a wide person (or next to one) it would have been pretty cramped. Neither of my flights (to Newfoundland) were full so we all had a bit of extra space. Food was adequate but could be improved with fruit instead of dessert."
Pros: "Kept us up to date and gave us a lunch voucher."
Cons: "We had a 4 hr weight in St John's"
Cons: "there were no complimentary snacks"
Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"
Cons: "Seriously? No free snacks? It's ridiculous that you want us to purchase snacks. Something small should be complimentary. Staff was in ok moods but a little edgy. The air was too cold."
Pros: "The flight arrived about 30 minutes early. Also, it left a little late. For me, the less time on the plane the better."
Cons: "Guy next to wanted to charge phone a laptop in USB port in front of me b/c his was our of order. This worked out OK but in a small space it's not so good. He was bare foot too. Take of your shoes but wear socks, please....Plane was not hot, actual a litter chilly."
Pros: "Food on board"
Cons: "Waited 50 mom for delay. Arrived and delayed on tarmac 1hr and long wait into duties."
Cons: "We ran to the gate to make our connection and reached the gate on time while the flight was still boarding. They offloaded our luggage assuming we will be late!!!!"
Cons: "4 hour departure delay"
Cons: "Everything. Plane was ready to leave on time but had a delay of almost an hour due to construction in Toronto. Connecting flight was held in Toronto and despite getting to gate almost an hour before departure, they changed passengers to another flight causing total delay of four hours. Air Canada staff were indifferent and uncaring. Unfortunately with no real choice in airlines to Newfoundland we are stuck with Air Canada."
Pros: "The most outstanding part of the trip was the Check-In Agent. My original flight was cancelled and the very lovely lady at Check-In was so nice, very professional and just gr at to work with. On the whole AC is just, well, better than average and a great outlook on the people perspective."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Pros: "Good leg space very comfortable sitting and entertainment television."
Pros: "One of the flight attendant saw I needed help holding my second big bag while I was putting my carry on in and she held it for me without me asking and helped me find my seat, it was very stress relieving for me, and I really appreciated that. She was also very nice to everybody."
Cons: "I had a sprite and the amount was very little, I feel like the cups have got smaller. But that's not a big deal"
Cons: "The horrendously long lines going through security!! I am 77. My husband is 81. Standing in those very long lines was extremely fatiguing. To the point we are rethinking ever flying again. They were bad bookends to an otherwise great trip."
Pros: "Trouble free"
Cons: "Very costly - then we were hit with an extra $172 in baggage fees for 1 bag each."
Pros: "Drinks were provided."
Cons: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Flying in the air"
Cons: "Promising the mob my first born son to pay for a flight home"
Pros: "Boarding was on time. Comfortable sheet."
Cons: "Food was horrible, and table was dirty and looked like it wasn't cleaned. Poor music and movie selection."
Pros: "The price of the flight was excellent and the service totally reliable."
Cons: "Small aircraft for a fairly long overnight flight. Made it difficult to rest as the flight was full."
Pros: "Let the announcements be delivered in both language successively."
Cons: "5 hours late with no info"
Cons: "Being stranded in Toronto for 24 hours with Air Canada unwilling to rebook us on other carriers to get us home sooner. Given our prediction of the missed connection and request for rebooking before our first leg of travel, it was particularly irritating that they would not help us get home the most efficient way."
Pros: "Great, new aircraft, entertainment system much improved"
Cons: "Business class boarding was slow, behind the people pretending to need advance boarding (but who recover on the plane and spring to their feet (vs waiting for assistance) at the destination and charge off unassisted. AC is pinching pennies (e.g., to save 2 cents/breakfast they omit the tomato relish that used to keep the omelette from seeming dry)."
Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."
Cons: "Kid crying and yelling the whole flight"
Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."
Cons: "Again, more delays."
Cons: "very comfortable flight with free movies."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "everything was smooth / great service"
Cons: "AC was too cold for 6am in the morning. very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was respectable and the food was good."
Cons: "The policy of having to check-in in order to have a seat is ridiculous and borderline racketeering. If one pays for a flight, they should get the ticket they paid for. It should not be based on whether they check-in because Air Canada wants to make more money on selling their seat because they didn't check-in. This is unacceptable. Since it's a company policy, my wife and I would enforce our own policy in response: we will choose not to fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I find it very strange that you have to pay extra to ship a bag. Air Canada advertises that all fees are included in their fares. However you are getting hit at the back end after you make your booking. Just about everyone travels with a bag to ship. After having to Leave fort Mcmurray due to loosing our home we had to pay an extra fee to ship three bags. It does not do much for the image of Air Canada be a leader in the industry and be up front all the way."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Cons: "Air Canada service"
