Plane could have been on time alonost 2 hours delayed then air on tarmac for another hour customs delay
Cons: "Some sort of entertainment. More comfortable seats."
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, and we travelled with a lap infant - we really appreciated that they blocked off row for us."
Cons: "The food is a scam. It’s overpriced, made poorly, and it’s the only option if you didn’t pack anything onto the plane with you."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1hr"
Cons: "Allow seat selection without a fee. Provide entertainment and more comfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew were nice!"
Cons: "But this was like flying in an antique from the 20th century. No screens, AC not working well, tiny cabin. One of the bathrooms didn’t even have a sink."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours without updates"
Pros: "Newest 787 plane in the fleet. Really comfortable seats and terrific in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly crew, informative captain."
Cons: "Nothing- it was a very short flight, didn’t need anything else."
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Pros: "Decent flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Also they said there is USB sockets at your seat but there were none."
Cons: "The landing was a little bit too hard."
Pros: "More leg room in seat than expected."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "Great flight. It was like the plane wasnt even moving !!"
Pros: "Airport counter staff v helpful. Crew were great. Helped lady with 2 kids. Looked after 1 while mom changing other."
Cons: "Need more seat room. No entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was kind"
Cons: "8 pm flight was delayed for 3.5 hours . I had early work meeting . I landed st 2 am and not 10 pm like planned. Need airline to compensate. Not sure if I will fly this airline again."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Pros: "Crew was good as usual."
Cons: "Thought the flight may have been delayed due to issues with ice rain in Toronto. From what was said, it wasn't that, some other issue with the plane and a cancelled flight in the west. No email in advance, no apologies, no freebies (like even a stupid sandwich). You sit an extra 2 and a half hours in an airport with a 5 year old before a 4 hour flight, and see how much the lack of anything grates. And paying for the first bag on the flight. And the emails they did send were after we were already at the airport-in no time to do any good. I Usually like West Jet , but losing my faith in them. Wonder how flair is..."
Pros: "Flight time, attendant"
Cons: "New food is terrible and ground crew is Maui is beyond slow"
Pros: "Agreed to check bag at gate, early boarding in return. Great gift!"
Cons: "LaGuardia is terrible. They shrank departure lanes and we got stuck on the plane for an hour. I hate this airport. Something always goes wrong."
Pros: "crew was exceptional"
Pros: "The stewards were great however no TV anymore and meals because of cost cutting was where we thought it was lacking."
Cons: "Refer to above :"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but it was due to weather, so it is really out of westjets hands."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Internet was poor, my movie kept stopping and restarting."
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "Lots of room and overall smooth flight. Watched the free wifi entertainment, not the most current but a good selection."
Cons: "It was chilly on the flight despite not having the vents turned on in my row and blankets are no longer provided without cost. I did not want to be cold but I also did not want to own a west jet blanket."
Pros: "Explained why flight was delayed Helped a young lady find her cell phone"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Some crew members seemed aggressive while walking through the aslie Food was dry for the price"
Pros: "The Crew and Boarding was fine"
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 4 hours. No separate accomodation or food was provided. Unhappy with the delay with no compensation"
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "Was very windy when leaving Hamilton but the captain handled the flight so smoothly that I was able to sleep through most of it!"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding from the minute we arrived in Hamilton till we got to Edmonton. So impressed with the customer service."
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was fine."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed"
Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."
Cons: "Arriving at Orlando, Real confusing and I'm not really old yet. Good thing we had people to meet us, I had no idea where to go."
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."
Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"
Pros: "The staff were so helpful to travellers with small children and elderly travellers. They looked like they really enjoyed their jobs...Well Done Christine S North Vancouver"
Pros: "food, flight crew, leg room"
Cons: "crying babies"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
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: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Cons: "To be honest, our stuartess was very abrasive. To everyone."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they never let us onboard even when I was able to make it to the gate before it was closed. After missing the flight the hotel vouchers was provided but we were asked to report in 2 hours (i.e 4AM) so think abou whole night was literally wasted. Finally next flight was 11AM in the morning which I ended up boarding and finally reach Toronto after 8 hours of delay."
I sat near a man who continually took his mask off. He was told to put it on 3 different times. He would say “ oh sorry” then remove it as soon as they walked away. By the end of the flight they had given up and they all walked by him “maskless” and didn’t say anything. He coughed and sneezed throughout the flight
Price was good. Boarding was terrible. Perhaps it was on the airport authority. No food and no entertainment, as expected. No tunnel for boarding and getting off (inconvenient)
Cons: "We ran into a hiccup at the airport and my wife left her purse in the bathroom near security. Since the gate was over 1km away we ended up arriving 5 minutes before departure time but the gates were closed and they would not let us on.Gate staff were very unhelpful, and the next day the manager at Halifax was very rude about returning our checked luggage. We will fly with WJ/AC from now on."
There is no in-flight entertainment or food on this flight but for the price it was perfect - direct flight, on time, easy check in and boarding experience
You get what you pay for. It was all good.
Cons: "Was very late. Could not sort out simple boarding issues"
Pros: "Flight once it got to Edmonton was ok"
Cons: "Communications with travelers...5 hour delay! Meal vouchers were given with only one restaurant open and maxed out on space and good items...just a bad situation."
Pros: "Pricing is great"
Cons: "Seats, complimentary food, timing of flight"
Pros: "That it was cheap when we booked it online."
Cons: "Apparently it wasn’t that cheap of a flight after all. We had to pay for our luggage instead of a carry on. And the plane was empty not full with passengers. That to us was a ripoff. Don’t Deceive passengers to fly cheap with you when you’ll make them pay you for carry on when it’s not needed."
