Play is a great budget airline. There are no TVs or chargers in the seat but there was more legroom than expected. Boarding and all staff that I interacted with were great. You have to pay for any and all drinks or snacks you might want on flight.

Blood sucker budgeted airline. Charging after and after. No one should busy air ticket in this airline. Completely a scam and sucking blood.
The cabin crew very kindly arranged a change of seats for us due to a distressed passenger
There was no food or entertainment. That was fine, not a problem. I paid for “priority boarding” ( and a cabin bag) but there was no “priority boarding.” That was disappointing and falsely advertised so perhaps that could be adjusted.
Check in could have went faster and more smoothly
No frills airline. Excellent service. Very good leg room for passengers compared to other "full service" airlines. Crew was very friendly. No entertainment system other than flight information display which was surprising as I thought it would be another revenue stream for them. Overall a surprisingly excellent experience.
Great new carrier to Europe. Lots of leg space and friendly crew
Worst seating -- by several orders of magnitude -- on any aircraft in sixty years of flying regular and budget airlines. The seats are cramped from side to side, barely padded, short from back to front. Tightness was at first absurd and then actually painful for a five-to-six hour flight. Pitch between rows is so small that even turning to stand up to get into the aisle is difficult. And I'm a slender guy, 5'9", 170 lbs. Website for booking held many "mysteries" like hidden access to payment portal. Though one screen said my booking and payment were complete, I learned at the airport that "complete" was not true. Had to work with helpful supervisor at the check-in desk Online I was able to change my flight booking from Saturday to Friday, But also I learned at the airport (too late) that the carry-on bag fee from the Saturday flight did not automatically shift onto the Friday flight. I had to pay the much higher at-the-airport charge, 49 euros. I will try to get an adjustment.
The booking was for the new Icelandic budget airline Play, but Kayak keeps sending check-in information about India's Star Air.

Cons: "West jet has got to figure out a better way to board the plane- the "zone" model is a nightmare."
Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Cons: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."

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: "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."

Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."

Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Pros: "Flight attendants Snacks Entertainment options"
Cons: "No screens; but the options were provided"
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"
Cons: "To be honest, our stuartess was very abrasive. To everyone."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the pilots also cared about being on time."
Cons: "A couple checked their bags and for some reason ended up not flying with us. So the airline staff spent an hour searching for the bags and delaying the flight as everyone sat on board the plane. No entertainment was available on the plane and the flight attendants were also quite rude. This review is coming from someone who rarely complains or gets mad. If you have the opportunity to fly another airline, I would recommend it."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff exceptional !!"
Pros: "Liked most but don't understand why a family of 3 was separated. Bought tickets together."
Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
