Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the leg room for a 5 ft 10 inch man was fine in the main cabin. Pre ordered food and that was good."
Cons: "If people understood how to get off the plane"
Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"
Cons: "No USB charger outlets in seats"
Pros: "Quick and simple flight. I appreciated the free beer to get me thru it"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable! Smallest prop plane ever. It rattled and bumped the whole way and seemed very old and busted. Not what I expect from Alaska"
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was clean. Appreciated the care of the phone agent when we needed to make a change."
Cons: "Husbands upgraded seat 6C was terribly uncomfortable. My row and one other were completely skipped with food services I’m mean completely, no cracker no offer of food for purchase nothing. When I asked if there would be an opportunity to purchase food I was told that there would be three more carts....nope just nope. First time I ever have needed to purchase something to eat and it was complete unavailable. When the last cart came by I asked again and was treated rather bruskly of course I was just too “hangry” to care. First truly horrid trip I’ve ever experienced. This was not a full flight. Not sure what the heck was up but I’ve never been so glad to get off a flight."
Pros: "Very simple and easy trip. The flight attendants even found a postcard my friend had left at the gate earlier in the day and gave it to me on the flight."
Cons: "Airlines are so scared to fly in inclement weather. I knows it’s safer but if it’s raining and there’s no sign of lightning it’s probably safe to leave."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Pros: "Was one of the best flights I’ve had. Service was really good and enjoyed the complimentary cocktails"
Pros: "Love Alaska. Good service"
Cons: "full flight, and Portland packed with commuters as usual"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "My flight was at 6:45 and so the first domestic flight out was much more crowded than I thought. People were cutting claiming they’re late. No staff other than at the entry. Voices were raised as one man refused to let two others to just cut and walk right past him."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "We would have loved more of a meal during the flight."
Pros: "The seats and stowage were expected in comparison to a 737-800. Boarding time was fairly quick and organized."
Cons: "Boarding announcement was localized using a small portable microphone/speaker combo. Not great if you were sitting in another gate where seating was available. Food was pay as you go. Soft drinks and water were free. No in flight entertainment in the seat. They use GoGo Flight and rent tablets for 10.00 USD. The videos would skip and you will miss key elements of a plot. I was underwhelmed by this airline and will likely not take them again for a 5.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The plane was limited in space to move around. Overhead baggage compartment was broken. Should provide more movies to economy class! Vegan meal wasn't actually vegan (yogurt is not) and it was poor quality."
Pros: "The free wine! It was on time, employees at airport and on plane were very nice. Flight and seats comfy."
Cons: "Wish there were more direct flight to SF"
Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"

Pros: "Smooth flight lovely flight attendant"
Pros: "Found the crew to be friendly and relaxed. The plane was fairly new. Overall, it went fine as long as you understood it was going to be simple offerings."
Cons: "Apparent aggressiveness to get as many carry on bags paid for by the ground staff measuring with a measuring tape all bags. I've never seen anything like it. My bag was fine. Then, when they started to take fees you had to come back and pay. It wasn't done right then. The ground staff was minimally helpful. Flight amenities or not, pay for headset and having more than 2 TV shows and 2 movies cost you an up charge even on an overseas flight. One choice for dinner.- pasta so it was vegetarian. Breakfast was a sad roll, one small piece of cheese and ham, and fruit that was that questionable. Overnight flight, pillow no blanket in Economy. Seats hard and leg room was tight. Their Economy plus and business looked a much better way to go."
Cons: "The flight that I booked is from Omaha to Guangzhou, but you guys gave me the ticket shows that there has one stop by Canada, and I don't have the ETA so that the stuffs wouldn't let me get in the flight and I can't make my trip on time! I don't think that is my bad because as a customer YOU( this APP) should be able to let me know I need to get the ETA to support me stop by Canada before I book the ticket from YOU GUYS, and I don't know that, so that I can't get in the flight which is make me feels really tough! And I know that it is not just happen to me but also it happen to other people, there has some people has the same problem as I do, so I don't think you guys should do that! DO NOT sales us the ticket that can't let us get in the flight! As a public APP. You guys should make the notes when you sale the ticket, say" there has a one stop by Canada, IF U don't have ETA, pls don't book it!" Let the people know so that we won't get any trouble OK?!?!"
Pros: "Fast abs friendly, knowledgeable staff."
Pros: "Alecarte and free wine."
Pros: "Fast service, very professional and great customer service! Overall, a very pleasant flying experience."
Pros: "$25 meal voucher. Helpful staff who made sure everyone made connecting flights or were rerouted"
Cons: "Repeated delays. 5+hrs in airport."
Pros: "I think you need to adjust the cabin pressure as my legs and feet swelled and they've never done that on another flight. I even hydrated and tried exercises prior and through the flight. Please look into - I really think there is something to investigate. Thank you."
Cons: "It took me 2 days to get the swelling to subside. Not something I've EVER had to think about let alone do. I'm wearing compression tights...dreading the flight home tomorrow."
Pros: "Wine flys free is amazing!!!"
Pros: "Alaska airlines was a super flight, great staff"
Cons: "Portland TSA...horribly rude. A major incident waiting to happen with that kind of aggressive behavior"
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, clean plane"
Cons: "Slow drink service"
Pros: "I was checking in in a fluster and trying to attach my bag tags. A agent came over and helped me (for some reason I had taken the entire sticky back off ha!) and then he took my bag for me right from the kiosk. I was super impressed"
Pros: "My flight attendants were sooooo friendly. Also really enjoy the complimentary glass of wine!"
Cons: "no music. no wi-fi. nothing to enhance the experience. check out jet blue."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment tablet I rented ($10) was really nice. It had some very new movies, fun games and more on it. Most of the flight crew was kind and polite, minus one woman who seemed to hate her job and the airline. I was pleased that the flight wasn't canceled as many others into PDX had been that day due to an ice storm. Felt safe even with turbulence and threat of a slippery landing."
Cons: "One crew member, an older woman, seemed really bitter. She openly expressed frustration with Alaska in front of passengers on multiple occasions and was very rude and brusque with us customers. She made me feel like a nuisance for even just being on the flight. Otherwise the seats were just so small and uncomfortable. It was a long flight to feel smushed and have a sore tailbone from the total lack of padding."
Pros: "We arrived half an hour early! Bags on time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome!"
Pros: "Crew is friendly and very efficient. The flight attendant came to tell me that I would be on the same plane for the continuing flight to Sacramento so not to worry about short connection. This was very considerate. Free wine. SMOOTH landing."
Cons: "The sound system is VERY loud to the point of being piercing. I was on four of your planes and this was consistent."
Pros: "The crew is genuinely friendly and helpful. It was a very short flight so there is not much to note. It was on time, and I caught my connection easily. I am very glad they serve the Redmond Oregon to Portland route."
Cons: "This does not apply."
Pros: "Check in easy, comfortable seating, friendly staff,on time flight."
Pros: "The crew was hysterical. There were clearly some regulars on this flight and the crew knew them. Made the "shuttle" fun."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "How loud it was inside as was a smaller plane."
Pros: "Crew members, ease of boarding, Alaska App."
Cons: "Plane is small and very noisy. Hard to hear on your own device, or to take a nap etc. Small seats, tight fit - rubbing elbows with the person sitting next to you."
Cons: "Good one"
Pros: "Professional. Bumpy ride expected this time of year in the Northwest."
Pros: "It was everything nice from the take off to the landing"
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late. We were the 1st flight in the morning. There was no beverage service on the first flight and by the second flight they then charged for alcohol when there was supposed to be a free drink on the first flight. No entertainment offered for a 5+ hour flight. I was initially excited to fly with Alaska and took a longer flight duration to do so and paid more because the company used to offer the customer more. I now see that is a thing of the past and will book with other airlines that still hold this value."
Pros: "Flight went well. Even though a bit of weather delayed takeoff the plane reached PDX ahead of schedule. Flight attendants were thoroughly professional. Food was good. No complaints. Of course, I was on business and had only a briefcase and a rollaboard, but on the whole the trip was good. Also, the gogo wifi worked well, and having good internet connectivity is the most important quality of any of my flights since work does not stop even when I am flying..."
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Seat size in Comfort+ was still cramped. The person sitting next to me(in the middle was a fairly large (height not weight) and his arms and shoulders were pretty much flowing into my seat( I sat by the window). Leg room of course was fine. Very cold draft coming from the airplane(window?)"
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
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."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Pros: "Timely flights , plenty of good food and disciplined serving Amsterdam: good layover Modern plane Better entertainment system Good flight to travel to India , Mumbai ."
Cons: "Windows weren't clean for stargazing"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "everything except in flight internet."
Cons: "Gogoinflight hasnt woked as it said it would on any flight on any airline for a year."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, half the time the staff did not use the PA system. They were not clear on who needed to do a passport check. Started to read names off then just gave up and said "a lot of you""
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time. Signage at PDX is good. Easy to find where you need to be"
Cons: "Layover, confusing mob line at checkin."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "I have never had a problem with this airlines. This flight was no exception"
Cons: "More space, but I am in economy and that's just life! I expect my hips to hurt after, again my problem not there's, if I wanted more room I would buy first class but I won't for a short trip."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Cons: "I thought I stated this before about the flight (5), Treatment (5) all the rest (5), but Atlanta Airport does not support disabled people using scooters to get from one plane to another. With more people using these, only a matter of time until a reporter males this an ISSUE. Meanwhile I will make every effort NOT to use ATLANTA HARTSFIELD. This includes my wife, also using a scooter."
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Cons: "I showed up 2 hrs before the flight. Was told the flight from Toronto to Minn was delayed 30 minutes and go stand in line to speak to an agent. There were approx 20 in line yet only 2 gate agents at 4:30pm. One of the gate agents kept helping the Premium members and bypassing the standard line. The other agent was in a coma as his average person at counter was 10 min. Finally get to counter and they hand me a boarding pass going via Salt Lake in 30 minutes. But has a 3 hrs layover in SL. I then get to US Custom check for US residents re-entering and the line was a good 30 minute wait. You would think the Delta folks would have accounted for that line. I had to ask everyone in front of them if I could skip in front as the plane was now departing in 10 min. I had to then run on a bum knee and was the last to board. The agent at gate was saying we were calling your name but did they think I could have been stuck in customs? On that short of a window they should have walked me through Customs to make sure I got on a flight they wanted me to take versus my scheduled flight."
Pros: "crew was very respectful and kind"
Cons: "Flight was moved to a different gate, then delayed. We were given the absolute last seat in the plane that could not recline- not the seats I had selected before hand."
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Cons: "Did not have the fruit and cheese plate."
Pros: "Reachung my destination"
Cons: "I can appreciate the stress on everybody's mind but this was the worst time i had flying. Short story, 10am thursday-7pm friday. Less short story, 4 airlines, 3 security screenings and 2 customs stop points.7 delays, 2 cancels and 1 miss. It was a ping pong nightmare and 2 times it was suggested i take a bus...after i spent the money on a plane ticket with no offer of compensation, food vouchers or hotel accommodation. Delta has to convince me to come back to them."
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Cons: "Need more legroom"
Pros: "Loved everything, the meal was good, spacious seats and friendly staff."
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."
Pros: "Pilot was hot."
Cons: "4 hour maintenance delay. Arrived at 2 am, after boarding a different plane."
Pros: "Ditto from above"
Cons: "Ditto from above"
Pros: "Flight was the best we sat right behind first class so it wasn't a long wait to deplane. In flight entertainment was great to with a wide selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "Nothing was bad about the flight sorry"
Pros: "Great crew and aircraft"
Pros: "Again, despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Again, Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."
Pros: "Good experience given that it was a long flight."
Cons: "How about meal service on the 5hr flight from Atlanta to Portland? The food for purchase options left much to be desired."
Pros: "Clean, and ultimately fine. Ultimately unremarkable."
Cons: "The agent at check-in was a little cranky, the lack of food (even for purchase) is disappointing, can't seem to spare more than the little cup of soda for beverages. No power in seats, so why use the wifi on battery? Ultimately fine though, just no amenities. We got where we were going on time."
Pros: "On time, new airplane and good entertainment system"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See abo e"
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "Full flight, so the usual boarding slowness, but the ground and flight crews were very good and made things easy."
Cons: "Boarding. But that’s the reality of travel these days."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Communication as to why we were promoted to premier seats and service."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat space was a bit tight"
Cons: "Little more space and leg room"
Pros: "Didn’t make my flight"
Cons: "If the app didn’t send me a message saying my flight had been delayed when it was in fact on time."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"
Cons: "didn’t love the lights coming on in the middle of the night"
Pros: "Consistencies on bagage claim info, and changes in boarding gates."
Cons: "Inconsistencies, on my way back to montreal from the philippines, i was informed that baggage would be claimed directly to final port of destination but didnt, when i arrived at toronto i had to take my bagage and drop it off again, although my next flight would be with west jet airlines, korean air was not able to communicate well with their airline partners as to bagage claim and changes in boarding gates."
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: "organic bars, hot green tea in real mug, friendly staff"
Cons: "no entertainment or WiFi and seats did not recline."
Pros: "Punctuality and smooth flight"
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."
Pros: "I got the executive treatment"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. Good leg room."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours. There was a change in gates and aircraft. The gate was too small for the amount of people boarding. Families were separated due to the change of aircraft. Few updates of the situation while waiting."
Pros: "very nice."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "Efficient service - boarding and arrival were on time."
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "Speed of Service"
Cons: "Wish flight attendants were demonstrated more interpersonal skills."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."
Pros: "It was overall ok , but over all disappointing that west jest became such a budget airline."
Cons: "I’m disappointed that west jet became such a budget airline, it used to be my favourite. Now there’s no monitors, you got to use up your own power from devices. I prefer to save my battery when travelling."
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Pros: "It was very enjoyable all round."
Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Pros: "The Crew was excelent, WestJet has the best crew, very courteous and helpful unlike disgruntal AA crew. They also have the best price deals available. I highly recommend this airlines. Thanks"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you buy one of their tablets. Unerstandable given the type of fleets they use."
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
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: "The flight is decently cheap"
Cons: "Everything else is not really pleasant for a long distance travel. I've never felt more uncomfortable in my life during a flight. But i suppose you get what you paid for."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"
Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."

Pros: "Plus seats reasonable price and very comfortable"
Cons: "No lounge access"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful"
Pros: "simple no frills plane crew was polite (they are canadians after all!)"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight, cost me a day's work. Didn't get notification, had to rush through Pearson only to find out my flight had already left."
Pros: "They promised a taxi voucher"
Cons: "The customer school was closed and the phone car was snide."
Cons: "The only real qualm had to do with delays which is not the fault of the airline...I think."
Cons: "During my booking I ended up with my return flight being on the same day as my departing flight. I was surprised that this was not noticed as I would not have even reached Vancouver before I was scheduled to return. My fault too as I did not look at the tickets when I printed then off before we left Fortunately there was only a 120.00 charged to change our tickets. I am just thankful my husband noticed the day before we got to the airport to come home as the flight was totally booked."
Pros: "Quick boarding, friendly crew, on time departure"
Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "No food"

Cons: "Change the charges for the luggage when it is international and provide good quality food!!!"
Cons: "Everything very poor"
Cons: "The flight Mexico-Merida was delayed"
Pros: "Great plane with great service!"
Cons: "They pushed the first leg of my flight forward 15 hours, but only told me 5 hours before my flight, and they didn't even change the second leg. Was on the phone for an hour trying to get a new flight, and there were very few options. Very stressful."
Pros: "Entertainment on the long haul was good, no entertainment on the fight from Mexico City to La Paz"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes"
Pros: "Enjoyable flight with great crew!!!"
Pros: "No complaint at all, I am very satisfied."
Cons: "Gate no printed on boarding passes. I understand that gate no are subuject to change, but at least it would point me on the Wright direction"

Pros: "They are very efficient"
Pros: "My seat assignment was changed, and I was in an empty row."
Cons: "I had a very difficult time hearing the p.a. announcements...and I'm not hard of hearing. Also, with the exception of one or two of the flight attendants, smiles were at a minimum. It didn't effect my safety, but it sent a message of indifference."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for along time. One piece of luggage was missing and was returned with holes. In other words, destroyed"
Pros: "Trip was fine, food was good. Loved we each had our own tv and headphones."
Cons: "Lost my luggage. It was sent to Los Angeles instead of Portland. Very very disappointed."

Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Airplane was hot and airless. Tray table was broken."
Pros: "The food, space and movies!"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that the airplane seats in both airplanes were comfortable."
Cons: "Their system says one thing but in the airport they charge you otherwise. I had purchased my ticket with 2 checked bags allowance only to go to the airport and pay 235 because apparently I didn't!. And I had called not once but SEVERAL times to confirm that I had that 2 checked bags allowance. Furthermore, they told me I would have to wait for my bags and transfer them to the connection band, but guess what? I waited an entire hour for my bags only to be told my an airport employee not even a Aeromexico one, that most likely my bags already went to their destiny. My flight was in 1 hour from then and I almost lost it thanks to them giving incorrect information to their customers."
Pros: "diret fly from mexico to portland"
Cons: "long trip no entertainment"
Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment was excellent. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "“Cheese plate” was dried out cheese with 3 hard cracker/bread things and 2 grapes! Really 2 grapes?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Beverage selection so so"
Pros: "Crew was excellent . Food was good. Flight was long, but I was well aware of this ahead of time."
Cons: "Loud kids next to me"
Pros: "Our ~5 hour lay over in Benito Juarez airport was not good."
Cons: "Airport was very warm no AC. Crowded. Poor variety for sit down restaurants. They too were crowded and poor service and expensive."
Pros: "Food and crew are good."
Cons: "The information in the web site it's confusing. I check in online, and still had to wait 30 minutes to check in my baggage. The seat I was assigned, it's the worst seat I ever had. It doesn't make sense to check in 3 hours early and get 30C in an airplane with 30 been the highest number. In top of it, your staff receving the baggage needs better training and more help. They get overworked and discharge their frustration with the customers."
Pros: "Plane staff was friendly, onboard entertainment options were good and the fare was reasonable."
Cons: "Plane noise was very loud and cabin temperature was so warm I was sweating and my wife ended up feeling naseaus towards the end of a 5.5 hour flight. Also, not a big fan of advertising being played over the TV and cabin speaker system."
Pros: "Nice to have free food, good movie selections"
Cons: "Seats are so vertical! Uncomfortable... Departure back to the US was disorganized-our flight was delayed so two flights were leaving simultaneously from the same gate."
Pros: "I really enjoyed this subsidiary of Delta Airlines and was happy that the level of service from the flight attendants was top notch. None were snarky nor annoyed to attend to the passengers. All the flight attendants were very nice and gave me good vibes about their flight crew.I will be flying AeroMexico again."
Pros: "we upgraded to emergency row for free which gave us a lot of extra legroom. The flight attendants were always available. Basic drinks were complementary. The meal was complementary also."
Cons: "Aeromexio did not include my name in the passenger list. And it cost me 2 hours detained upon arrival in Portland"
Pros: "The dinner was amazing. Best meal I had on a plane."
Cons: "The flight was 2 1/2 hours late. The information provided by the people on the gate always change. There were people on line, and other flight was asigned to the same gate. Confusing and tired. The people on the gate were stressed out, I believe, because they were not very kind."
Pros: "Service and entertainment on board was excellent."
Cons: "Flight did not leave on time."
Cons: "The gate wasn't posted on any screens (which I realize may be the airport's issue, not the airline), the plane were on had very old, worn, and uncomfortable cotton seats (there was a permanent dip where people had been sitting, and my husband's seat cushion wasn't held down in any way - as in, he could remove it completely). On our flight down, we all had our own TVs allowing us to watch whatever, but on this flight there was only the drop down TVs, and there were a lot of crying children (which I also realize is completely out of your control, but didn't help in adding to our experience)."
Pros: "First class was nice onboard the plane, but too tired to enjoy it since it was a 1am flight."
Cons: "The counters did not open until 10pm, only 2hrs B4 "the flight closed at 12 midnight), even though they say arrive 180 minutes early. The "SkyPriority" line was the slowest line. At the outset two agents weren't even helping guests. This was a very frustrating experience. Unfortunately, I had to pickup and recheck my bag and ended up waiting outside security for several hours because there was no where to drop the bag after passing immigration from my connecting flight. I suggest AM get another airline's baggage handler to recheck bags for early arriving customers so at least they can wait inside security where amenities abound."
Pros: "Entertainment, crew, personal USB charger"
Cons: "no wine (not even for purchase)"
Pros: "Seemed fine!"
Pros: "Best entertainment"
Cons: "I believe Aero Mexico had four flights going from LAX to Mex City in the matter of two hours when we arrived so the line to check in was huge. Not a big deal until the staff began pulling people from the back of the line to check in for flights that left at the same time as ours, which put us on a time crunch to get to our gate on time. Once we arrived at the gate, there was no indication that our flight had been delayed and no announcement regarding its status. We simply had to wait and wait, then we finally took off an hour late. The staff on board the plane was less than helpful in getting our customs paperwork to us as well. Not a great experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a day. I had to spend a night on Mexico. They changed my flight so I lost a day traveling."
Cons: "My flight ended up being cancelled from San Jose to Mexico City back to Portland OR. Aeromexico told me there was no way they could get me home that day and that they would pay for my hotel, food etc. i cried my eyes out and begged to get me back to America. Somehow after about 30 minutes of back and forth, Austin Lopez with Aeromexico saved the day!! He got me several connecting flights back to Oregon and I was home the next morning very early. He was very sweet and caring. I wish I could tell his boss how amazing he was! Thank you again Austin!"
Pros: "Punctuality, good film selection."
Cons: "Food was extremely bad."
Cons: "The worst airline now a days"
Cons: "No internet service available."
Cons: "Aeromexico's conditions of carriage allow them to cancel your flight rebook you days later with no liability. They pay no compensation for delays that last days . Take at your own risk, I learn the hard way."
Pros: "The airplane had entertainment choices. It was a nice entertainment system with recent movies."
Cons: "There was an hour delay on one of the flights and we were not notified. We had to ask around to find the information we needed."
Pros: "Good service. Friendly flight crew. Everything went well."
Cons: "I didn't ask but it seemed like there were no food options for people with dietary restrictions, like a simple salad. However, I was surprised they had food in the first place."
Pros: "Very good experience"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "We still haven’t left Dayton."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Freezing, one hour wait on the tarmac before takeoff meant one hour delayed arrival. No TVs in seats, no meals on six hour flight."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "Had terrible seats with no reclines and near the bathroom. They charge extra for better seats, they should offer something in return for below average seats."
Pros: "The pilot was very apologetic about being delayed but we were able to catch the flight because it was delayed for about more than 2 hours."
Cons: "It was cold in the beginning of the flight. We were delayed at the first flight and when we got to the gate there were no one available at the gate to check us in. We had to go to customer service to get on board."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and efficient. Everything was on time."
Cons: "Cramped seats with zero leg room."
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Got to see The Shape of Water from DFW to PDX in advance of the Oscars! Nice clear image and sound. Thanks American, you've upped your game from a few years back!"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Pros: "Everything, crew, plane was clean, service was better than the previous international flight. Nont"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Pros: "I liked the way the Pilot (Captain) addressed the passengers before and after the flight."
Cons: "The wait at the customer service counter in the terminal at LAX."
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Nothing. Had a family emergency"
Cons: "I had a family emergency and had to buy a ticket to Pittsburgh to get home instead of going to Portland."
Cons: "American completely missed the mark. AA did not successfully change our reservation when the initial leg of our trip was delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue, which caused us to miss your connection in Chicago. Since American partners with Alaskan Airlines, American should have changed my reservations with regards to Alaska Airlines, but they failed to do that. I stood at the Alaskan Airlines counter as the plane left the gate with our empty seats because there was not a ticket. American Airlines did not change a reservation successfully and so although we had boarding passes with our names and seats and the flight number, the plane left without us. I was stranded and Seattle airport at midnight with a child and an infant with one diaper and one bottle left and it was a terrible experience with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying American they cannot get it together when problems happen with delays."
Pros: "We really enjoyed our flights with American Airlines. From the counter to the stop on the plane everyone was great to work with and very friendly"
Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "The agent at the desk helped seat us together after our disastrous 1st flight. Crew was friendly & upbeat, great service."
Cons: "Old plane No entertainment No place to plug in/charge devices."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and friendly during beverage and snack service Seats were clean and recently reupholstered"
Cons: "Two people got removed from the flight for seemingly no particular reason prior to departure, and looked quite unhappy although there were no strong words. Very small seat pitch Long delays for maintenance and runway Annoying ads for AA credit card over the intercom prior to landing No USB ports"
Pros: "Comfortable first class seats for a regional airline, although no food or entertainment. Flight attendants were great, very friendly and they checked up on us often. On time departure and early arrival. American Airlines has always been great for me. Will be back"
Cons: "No food in first class, but it was only a 2 hr flight on a regional"
Pros: "Flight was moved from Philadelphia to Dalllas...no problem"
Cons: "scanty food from Dallas to Porltand"
Pros: "The boarding was super fast as well as exiting, WOW!"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between."
Cons: "I think this was the most cramped airplane I have been on. It was so uncomfortable and I would think that they would take this into consideration since it was a red eye flight."
Pros: "I got there safe and there was some entertainment"
Cons: "seats small and not real comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was apologetic."
Cons: "PHL ground stop no known reason. Good weather. Even pilot was at a loss. 4 hours total delay, 3 of which spent in tarmac."
Cons: "Only airline we flew that didn’t have pre boarding for families with small children."
Pros: "We did not take this flight when its schedule was moved back, instead taking one LHR-SEA that would get us home at a reasonable hour."
Cons: "The change by British Air in flight departure/arrival times. The resulting adjustment was costly and we were unable to get "extra" seating on the long leg of the trip by the time we were notified of the changes."
Pros: "The check in process with the kiosks. It was very easy."
Cons: "They ran out of sandwiches that we had to pay for. We didn't have to do that on the Aer Lingus flight, which was for the same amount of time. In the other flight we had choice in entetainment."
Cons: "our flight was delayed, and no other options"
Pros: "On schedule and met all my expectations."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."
Pros: "Nothing unexpected happened"
Cons: "Narrow seats . No plug in for music or phone .. Bare minimum for same cost as better flight"
Cons: "Booked flights together yet sat apart.. kid kicking back of away just uncomfortable"
Cons: "Terminal at LAX requires a bus."

Cons: "Cancelled and put me on a flight over a day later with no hotel voucher"
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Limited snack options."
Cons: "Having to pay extra 24 hours in advance for a seat. There were no available "free" seats 24 hours before flight time."

Cons: "It seems you could have given me some extra miles or a free flight for all rhe hassles ov missing flights both going to Toronto and the return trip as well as missing my luggage for two days on the return!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight delayed for two hours and then eventually cancelled!"
