Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "There was absolutely nothing "first class" about this flight. Cramped seats, baggage fees, terrible boarding procedures... I've experienced better service on economy flights. Never again with Delta/Westjet."
Cons: "Overstuffed storage bins. Absolutely chaotic and abysmal boarding process"
Cons: "Better, healthier food choices would be nice."
Pros: "Crew was great. Delayed by mechanical issue. Weather was bad in Montreal so delayed again. Mechanical issue is a pain but I'd rather not crash so all in all very good. Really windy at landing, pilots did a great job. Respect!"
Cons: "Just a heads up, if you're a large person, weight wise, you may have a challenge using the rest room. It's pretty small."
Pros: "Handled the delay professionally with full transparency."
Cons: "If this flight was just cancelled from the beginning- a lot of time wasted and did not get a refund for the cancelled flight."
Pros: "No one disturbed me while sleeping and crew was helpful when I woke as bad needed refreshments."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Communication as to why we were promoted to premier seats and service."
Pros: "The crew worked hard to ensure that we had a good flight with minimal interruptions"
Cons: "Delays always hurt, the flight was delayed yet there were no notifications and additionally the delay was closer to an hour long since boarding only started 20 minutes late."
Pros: "Roomie seat. Professional curdious crew. Fast smooth flight. Westjet connect access for entertainment."
Cons: "Seamless flight. Great staff. Thank You."
Cons: "I booked a flight for Tuesday the eighth and you guys changed it to the seventh, this has never happened to me before I am furious!"
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."
Cons: "When tavelling with a child, which is always identified at the time of booking by providing child's age, every other airline was able to accommodate seating together. Even at the lowest fare class. Not Westjet, their automatic computer seating assignment gave us seats in separate rows !! When asked at the checkin and also again at the gate, we were told that the fare class that we paid for does not allow seat changes. They simply would not seat a parent and a child together unless we paid extra $25/person to change seats. This kind of gauging for money was shocking. Especially when there were 3 other rows behind us with free seats together !! This was clearly a case of wanting more money. At the lowest fare class parents travelling with children can expect the child to be sitting separately from them. Or pay up more."
Cons: "Sitting at departure gate waiting for two passengers to get kicked off, hard landing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The waiting area, lateness of the plane"
Pros: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"
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: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."
Pros: "paying for plus was a nice bonus on this flight, given it was sold out."
Cons: "Delays in getting airborne. Also, the 30 minute wait for our bags in Calgary was ridiculous"
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "trip was fairly smooth, flight was on time. Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Trying to carry travel on luggage up the aisles is very awkward when the plane is already full or half full of people. seating should be done in a bit more order. back 5 rows, next 5 etc. Crew should have a better knowledge of the land masses flying over."
Pros: "The female flight attendant and the pilot spoke reassuringly and with friendliness."
Cons: "This was the most negative experience I’ve ever had flying Westjet. The female flight attendant was wonderful, fun and friendly and professional. The two younger male attendants were incredibly rude, rolled their eyes, ignored me, put themselves first (at one point instead of making room for me to return to my seat the blond one insisted I let him pass when it was unsafe for me to do so and nowhere for me to go). I felt demoralized by these two men and it’s both surprised and disappointed me as Westjet staff have a reputation for friendliness. These two men will Discourage me from flying Westjet when travelling to LA again. Not pleasant. Again the women was lovely. I tried to catch the male names but they wouldn’t stop and face me for long enough for me to see their name tags. They seemed to have some inside jokes between them and gave me the sense my requests were not welcome or respected. I am a nervous flyer and this was such a difficult and uncomfortable Experience."
Pros: "I went through customs and then walked via escalators and moving walk ways to b4. It took me almost a hour. I was the last to board I am sure And had to collect my own luggage and take it from one point to another. I am 70. thank god, when I got on the plane I sat in 3a and was offered a free glass of wine. halleluya. I was exhausted Toronto airport is always a nightmare. I travel a lot and will avoid this airport if I can. I do like West jet but Delta /west jet connection means I have to take my bag from one place to another and I walked miles and could have missed my flight. I am tired. I am going to bed"
Cons: "How is it that in a 5 hours flight you don’t be get any food for free? You have to pay for every meal. And the entertainment system isn’t only available through the west je to app but i didn’t know that until I board the plane wtf"
Cons: "snow caused my flight to be cancelled instead of the direct flight to nyc i flew via Atlanta. due to the timings of the flight - landing at 2.30 am, leaving at 7.30 am - i had no option but to sleep on the airport floor i will try to avoid fliying with westjet in future - staying loyal to air canada - to avoid the risk of such a terrible flight diversion"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Cons: "No crew to load the baggage or guide us out of the terminal. After a day of cancellations and delays for my one flight, my baggage was lost. I felt like notifying us about delays and cancellations could have been handled more efficiently. Also, the staff was not helpful when my baggage was lost"
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: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Cons: "I was given a ticket with the seat 3A (one of the plus seats); I didn't ask for it or pay for it, I just got that seat when I was checking. After I found out it was a plus seat, I acknowledged to nearby the flight attendants and nearby passengers I didn't pay for this, that there was a mistake, and I could move if there was someone who did pay for it. What I received from the flight attendants are accusatory remarks/comments about how shouldn't be there because I didn't pay for it (after I acknowledged this before anyone even had an issue about it) and passive excuses that didn't make much sense when I asked them why there ws this issue in the first place. I was fine with moving seats from what I was initially assigned to, I was fine with being moved twice thereafter (first moving to 21E, then to 23E). What I was not fine with was 1. the accusatory tone by the flight attendants that I tried to take someone else's seat 2. even though I was given the seat by the person at the check-in desk when I didn't even ask for it and 3. after I was the one who initially brought up this issue in the first place and was willing to changet seats with he rightful passenger. Please learn to take responibility for your actions and mistakes and errors rather than blaming it on a passenger who just wants a safe flight home. Thanks."
Pros: "Kayak was great to book through. Very simple. Plane ride there was great."
Cons: "Plane ride home wasn't good due to the airplane propellers being louder then usual and noisy, a little unsettling."
Pros: "Due to a baggage check-in snafu, we were very late to arrive at our gate. But we made it! And the staff were still very kind to us even though we arrived so late and they didn't know why. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever been on, and the snack and beverage service was just fine - I loved that cookies were an option and not just pretzels. Overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "Very friendly, professional and entertaining crew."
Cons: "Delays Boarding: boarding from both doors: back door and front door, but no direction from the crew to anyone. Ended up with passengers trying to get in the front from the back and passengers trying to get to the back from the front. This created another extra 15 minutes delay when everyone were stuck in the middle...The rest of the passengers waited outside in Canadian winter cold. On a flight already late."
Pros: "I am mute and the staff did a good job of understanding that and accommodating the way I communicate. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight ever)"
Pros: "Staff on the ground and in the air were great - nice, polite and funny"
Pros: "I had 2 checked in bags, the charge a bit to high, When fly between Canada - USA, 1 allowable check-in luggage should be included in the fare. Please think about it."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful with my baby who was a little fussy."
Pros: "inflight entertainment was good and friendly staff"
Cons: "lots or turbulence and uncomfortable landing"
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: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"
Cons: "I downloaded the app but was disappointed that the aircraft had no Wifi. There were TV's on each seat back, but several weren't working, including mine. The flight attendant reset the satellite TV's on the whole aircraft, and mine began to work for about 15 mins. Then it stopped again. Very disappointing to be without wifi AND Tv. Esp since I read thru all my reading material on the way to Toronto."
Pros: "Haven't flown Westjet in years. Don't know why but I don't have sore kneecaps, was served great coffee, the stewards always smiled and had funny things to say, and the gate keepers were happy and honest. I'm going to be a frequent flyer now for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like....um....nope. no complaints"
Pros: "The snacks were good"
Cons: "They lost my checked sleeping bag which forced me to buy another one before my backpacking trip. They refused to refund me for it costing me an extra few hundred dollars to replace it. To include I paid an extra eighty dollars for my trip because apparently I requested window seats which I wasn't provided for my return flight home! Be prepared to lose your luggage and don't expect a refund!"
Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."
They came without any food or drinks… not even a glass of water for the whole flight… nothing
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "I can't think of a thing"
Cons: "The flight took off late, arrived late and we missed our connection to Salt Lake City. We had to change terminals and they were on the opposite side of the airport. Had to spend the night and have not yet started with Aer Lingus to get some satisfaction."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Forced to board a bus and sit in an empty terminal. Paid for priority boarding but wasn't called for it. Pretty disorganized. Good flight but gate crew needs work."
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Pros: "All good, excellent crew."
Cons: "After awhile Seats were a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful, food was great! Takeoff was a little delayed but they kept us informed and that was fine. Over all a wonderful experience"
Pros: "Flight was quick"
Cons: "Small seat no recline very crowded"
Pros: "fantastic customer service"
Cons: "wouldve loved to have been left breakfast while i slept"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "very friendly staff great flight with nice tech made trip fly by"
Cons: "Have to pay for a coffe"
Pros: "The service. Excellent"
Cons: "Pay for the food. LOL."
Pros: "Average flight to get you where you want to go. air hostess was helpful."
Cons: "Forgot my luggage in Toronto. This is the second time with aer Lingus in the past 8 month. Had to pay for my seat and baggage on top of ticket price, was unaware."
Pros: "Hate Ryanair! Cheap fools! Air Lingus are miles better. No pun intended."
Pros: "Quick, short"
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "The flight itself was great"
Cons: "The lines to get on the plane were insane. We waited for over an hour to check our bags because the kiosks weren’t working. Our luggage gate closed at 1115 and they waited until 1130 to call us out of the line because it was last call. Then they proceeded to tell us that our luggage may not make it because we didn’t push people out of the way and throw down grandmas? Unorganized."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The confort of thé seats. Way too tight for a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Very pleasant, competent, attentive, efficient crew."
Cons: "I did not like the delay in departing for Frankfurt-- missed the rental car and a meeting scheduled with a friend. Lufthansa for Frankfurt managed to depart on time. I know this may be out of your control."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "No complimentary free alcoholic drink with your meal on the Aer Lingus Flight."
Cons: "I was fine with a 5 hour delay I was fine with my bags not being on the same flight as me I am not fine with finally receiving my bags 24 hours later soaking wet. Everything it dripping. I still have nothing to change into now and there was no compensation offered whatsoever. Never flying with this airline again."
Cons: "Missed the flight."
Pros: "Good food, that’s it!!"
Cons: "Entertainment system is very very poor. There was no tissue paper in the business class toilets on the return flight. The Aer Lingus reos in Orlando were rude and unhelpful. Sat in business class and the seats are very annoying. They adjust using a sensor pad and the slightest touch off it,your seat starts shifting. I’ve had better experiences in economy class with other airlines. I just think it’s laughable that Aer Lingus class themselves as a 4* airline"
Cons: "Being charged $100 each way for checked baggage, no where on my itenerary did it mention that"
Pros: "I flew overnight from Toronto, Canada to Dublin and had a relatively pleasant experience. The food and drink trolleys came by quite quickly and frequently, and the food exceeded my expectations. The crew was friendly, for the most part. Boarding certainly could've been smoother... But overall, I'd fly Aer Lingus again for an overseas trip."
Pros: "Great seats plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The food... Yikes"
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight. From the price food and service. The layover was to long but it was a last minute booking"
Pros: "The crew was cheerful and the food was decent. It's a nice option for going from Europe to the US. Going through US customs in Dublin is much more convenient than waiting in line for 2+ hours in America after a 10+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit chaotic. Everyone had already lined up before they even started boarding business class. The seats and the on-demand IFE are a bit dated."
Cons: "they charged me 100 dollars to check a bag - nothing at all about this during my purchase. i am so mad at these guys."
Pros: "It got me there."
Cons: "Had to pay for sodas."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment selections are extremely limited and poor. Food is mediocre and not even comparable to other international Airlines business class standards"
Pros: "the timeliness of the airline in leaving and arriving at the ports, providing meals for the passengers,"
Cons: "breakfast was not given to some of us as the air hostesses said that they ran out of food"
Pros: "Fast and efficient crew"
Cons: "A going-through-the-paces flight and incredibly expensive beer and wine."
Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."
Cons: "The line for checking in was very long and the workers were very slow and not too friendly. The boarding was carried out in a first come first serve way. People started a line and instead of calling passengers by number groups, those in charge did nothing! So, my husband and I waited and noticed that people were boarding as is."
Pros: "Nothing. I flew with West Jet. Their review shall be posted on their forum"
Cons: "The abrupt cancellation"
Cons: "Weather delays. No water except for purchase"
Pros: "The service and food was great"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle of the row"
Cons: "We were surprised at check-in by a baggage charge for our 1st checked bag for each passenger. (We were led to believe that the 1st checked bag had no charge for each passenger before arriving at the airport.)"
Pros: "From the moment I arrived I felt very taken care of. Plenty of seating in lounge, with many of them facing runway. People were friendly and accommodating. Food was average. On aircraft, the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Staff at Frankfurt desk rude and dismissive. Spent hour and a half there...spent hour and a half today replacing clothes. Using faulty gps as you have lost my I-pad."
Cons: "Are Lingus is non responsive to their customers. When I called them about their change in my schedule, I was on hold for 45 minutes before someone answered the call. I explained my situation that because they changed my flight that I would now have to get a hotel, stay overnight and fly out the next day. They said there was nothing they could do and refused to pay for the hotel or meals that would be incurred as a result of their changing my flight. This was after I explained that I had originally paid more for the tickets on their airline so I would NOT have a long layover. Worst customer service I have ever encountered."
Cons: "------- we were very cold on the plane . ."
Pros: "Have traveled many long haul flights with various airlines in past 6 months. The Aer Lingus food was significantly better than the others. Very tasty."
Cons: "Not enough seating at gate in Dublin and the space needs updating. A complimentary beer or wine with the meals, as provided by other carriers, would be nice."
Pros: "What do you say about that loses you luggage both directions. It isn't reliable so that's it for me with aer Linus."
Cons: "Food wasn't very enjoyable. Breakfast was very disappointing."
Pros: "Rerouted through London, added five hours to trip"
Cons: "Flight was late out of Toronto making eight people miss the Glasgow connection. Remaining Glasgow flights for the day were full. Aer lingus staff at customer service seemed confused on what to do with us. Finally, after talking to a manager they offered to route us through London to Glasgow. Very frustrating, not sure why they couldn't hold the Glasgow flight to accommodate all of us? It would of been a lot easier for us!!"
Pros: "Crew are great. Very professional."
Cons: "Can’t complain."
Cons: "Warm bus for the transfer from one plane to the next!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, I missed my connection flight and now they lost my luggage. Staff are very friendly, but they can't do much to help me. Icelandair is doing OK in handling the situation, but let's see...I am still in an uncertain situation"
Cons: "The seat bottom was just a bit on the hard side."
Cons: "In general, not good enough for an overnight flight. Our flight was late, we missed our connections which is the primary reason I am complaining"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was required to gate check a bag, previously okay to bring on board, and it was lost upon arrival."
Pros: "Free kids meal was nice. Good selection of kids shows."
Cons: "Seating was not as expected due to plane change. Screens did not work on first leg, and screen controlled seat recline & lights."
Cons: "Old equipment as Maxes had to be replaced. Very limited luggage space in cabin. Little leg room and airline making a bundle off passengers with carry-ons that were over weight and charging to put under plane. Maybe not an issue if they had the Boeing Max up and running."
Cons: "Everything was screwed up because the Boeing Air Max aircraft was grounded. Our2 leg flight became a 3 leg flight! And our return flight became a three-leg flight requiring us to book a hotel overnight. Not an acceptable change of itinerary! No compensation from Icelandair for the inconvenience."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The price was good, the crew was friendly, and the on-line check in process was smooth."
Cons: "Non-functional entertainment consoles..so we could not watch anything, use our reading lights, adjust the temp, or summon staff if we needed to. With a bar in the middle of my foot space, there was no space under my seat for my personal item; No food on an international flight also disappointing."
Cons: "We had a different plane with narrow seats - ok for me but not the person beside me. Nothing but tea or coffee - all food and beverage had to be purchased. My experience. Uncomfortable and hungry."
Pros: "Fly Saga business.... exceptional food and service."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Comfort in seating was lacking, also having the luggage sitting out in the rain for 20 minutes was not ideal."
Cons: "Definitely not a comfortable flight. And being that it’s an international flight, some free snacks would have been nice."
Pros: "I like that the flight was very comfortable & there was lots of options for entertainment!"
Cons: "Honestly it was probably the best flight I have ever taken!"
Pros: "Great crew, typical seats"
Cons: "Not having to pay for headphones on a long international flight"
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
Cons: "unexpected luggage charge for an international flight. $100 for each way!"
Cons: "When I booked this flight last March the booking info said 1 free bag. When we got to the airport we were told that we had to pay $94 Can per bag because we had Economy Light class. We had the same issue returning but the cost was $55 US. On top of that Iceland Air changed planes and bumped us from row 10 to 41 - the last row. Bizarrely there is no customer service desk at the Reykjavik Airport - they just give you a little card with the website for customer service. I don't understand how any airline does this! BTW, they blame the third party for the issues! That is you!!!"
Cons: "All the extra charges for anything other Seat on the plane. I don't blame Icelandair for this, I blame Kayak for it. Kayak really suck at informing customers about the services offered by Icelandair, I would have bought a better ticket if I was given all the info to make a informed decision"
Cons: "Icelandair! Didn’t switch us to the local airline wow had to use the lufthansa Which delayed us getting to our destination by eight hours"
Pros: "Getting off the flights! What a terrible experience. We will never fly or recommend this airline again"
Cons: "We will not fly Icelandic Air again. The baggage fees were incredible - $95 per bag to go from Boston and $110 per bag to fly home. That is over $400 in bag fees. This with practically no service, no snacks - we did get water and soft drinks and a ground crew in Iceland that does not communicate about boarding. There was no system to get people on the plane and no communication You expect a baggage fee but it should be well communicated. We looked up the fee online and saw an economy bag listed. What they do not list is that there are different economy baggage fees. The lower price you pay the higher the fee. Again I don't mind a fee - I just should be able to find that fee before I commit. Very deceptive advertising. I could have booked a flight with an airline for the same price and gotten better service, a few snack and airline miles."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Friend payed for additional luggage via phone call with Iceland Air but when we arrived the payment wasnt on file when we checked in. Even with a payment receipt for their luggage it was a hassle to get the airline to accept the luggage. Thought we were going to miss out flight but made it with little time to spare."
Pros: "We didn't crash so that's a bonus."
Cons: "Well first off it was a connector flight from Toronto to Reykjavik to Oslo to Tromso, Norway. The first leg was delayed and then they lost my baggage, which happens, I get it. But then due to the delayed flight and lost baggage I missed my connection to Tromso. Then apparently neither airline can do anything to help me so I lose my entire flight cost because I booked through a third party. So I had to rebook a new flight at a premium cost just to get where I needed to go or risk losing my whole vacation. On top of that the baggage they lost is my backpack...hard to go backpacking across Norway with no backpack. Then they ship the backpack to the wrong airport, incorrectly wrote down my wrong cell number so they couldn't even call me...one cluster f*ck after another."
Pros: "You feel like they like you and want your business"
Cons: "Q line for boarding"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Pros: "Efficient short connection in Reykjavik. Also the luggage made it to the next flight."
Cons: "The bag check in process was unorganized. The bag belt was not working and out bags were left outside of the counter. They were not scanned in and did not make the flight even though we arrived at the airport 3 hours before boarding. It is very disappointing to get to Iceland and not have clothing to go explore. We are hopeful the bags will arrive before we leave."
Pros: "Flight was punctual"
Pros: "staff statues of the plane interior of the plane space touch screen entertainment program"
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Cons: "No food served at all, only drinks. The cabin got incredibly hot. The flight staff were friendly so that’s a plus. Seats were very uncomfortable and when the person in front of you reclines their seat, the back of their seat is right in your face. Also, boarding was a pain. Boarded 30 mins later than the scheduled time."
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "Having more leg room. Smaller plane. Short transit time."
Cons: "Being charged for a $10 meal after paying $100s for a ticket"
Pros: "Boarding was good and crew were pleasant"
Cons: "All bathrooms were out on the plane for the final 2 hours. You have to pay for any food you would like."
Pros: "Size, prices, flight attendants."
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"

Pros: "Assistance was available"
Cons: "Poor system. Caused excessive delay"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding at Reykjavik was very inconvenient. The airport building is old and needs upgrading."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Pros: "Iceland Air's stayover option is brilliant and it's great that two bags are free, however..."
Cons: "Entertainment options are slim. Of the ~75 movies, maybe half are from the Eighties, with only a half dozen newer releases. Coffee, water, and juice are free, but I hadn't read the fine print that the small meals all require an expensive inflight purchase."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. There were no surprises."
Pros: "There were movies available."
Cons: "The only thing offered was one drink and this was an international flight. The flight was delayed which resulted in us arriving only fifteen minutes before boarding our next flight which was also delayed. You had to pay for internet unless in their premier club."
Pros: "Enough space for foots."
Cons: "The flight started one hour late, the entertainmant system was broken. No free food included. What I liked? We just landed safely again and no luggage was missing (as with the last flight)."
Pros: "staff was very nice and helpful. clean plane. I asked for a can of soda and did receive a full can it was very much appreciated. I was glad the plane was on time and it was a good flight. The last time I booked a flight the service was terrible I was very happy for all improvements."
Cons: "Had to purchase food for the trip. Thought a meal was still going to be served. Also did not like that we were not able to pay with cash."
Pros: "From Toronto to Warsaw we flew with Air Belgium even though we paid a ticket for Polish Airlines and everything was horrible. We waited an hour without any explanation before boarding and another hour and half after boarding. The seats were very uncomfortable and there was no leg room. Flight from Warsaw to Belgrade was a lot better, however 2 out of my 3 luggages were lost. Crew on both flights were lovely."
Cons: "Food was almost cold.... I was in the back section of the planet...."
Pros: "Nothing to like in this Lufthansa flight."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 40 minutes. Flight delayed by almost an hour. And after departure crew informed us that they has some issues with catering and they will not provide with a regular service. Even tee was not available (they offerred juice, coke). They gave sandwich in a business class!"
Pros: "The crew was great, but my seat wasn’t that comfortable."
Cons: "I would probably like them to be on time because I almost missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming and helpful"
Cons: "Drinks serving could be more frequent. Food serving to have some options. Seats were somewhat not comfortable for tall people as they were lacking head support."
Pros: "Informative to the very minimum."
Cons: "NEED Leg room. Better air conditioning. It felt like a sardine box for 3 and a half hours."
Cons: "Soft drinks should be free of charge"
Pros: "Everything went good."
Cons: "Movie or general didn't provide closed caption or subtitle for an English language."
Pros: "Seat on aisle"
Cons: "Not being late for my second flight"
Pros: "I am fine with everything"
Cons: "Yes, I agrèe it could be"
Pros: "The crew was friendly but it was obvious they were poorly trained."
Cons: "Everything needs improvement for this airline to measure up to western European standards. I will avoid them as much as possible fro now on."
Cons: "The flight was canceled without notice."
Pros: "I liked that all flights were on time"
Cons: "I ordered a special meal but for some reason, I was not on the list. The crew decided that I had not ordered one."
Pros: "I liked the quality of the food and seat comfort. Crew were nice and worked efficiently."
Cons: "The delay. And entertainment. Poor selection and unit got cut off each time there was a turbulence. My unit stopped working and when I checked the other seat unit it was working. Luckily none was sitting there."
Cons: "The flight was almost two hours delayed. If my connecting flight were closer, I would have missed it. Otherwise everything was good. The 787 Dreamliner was new and very comfortable."
Pros: "The Dreamliner is new and shiny, and the bulkhead seat I happened to get had a lot of leg room."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment monitor was not working half the time, apparently because of some faulty wiring in the joint that connects the monitor to the seat. And guess what, when it does not work, the reading light and passenger assistance do not work either. Morale: only get bulkhead seats if you plan to sleep through most of the flight."
Cons: "Having to arrive 6 hours later than scheduled"
Pros: "Very nice new Dreamlianer , very clear , nice staff friendly and cooperative, food quality good, entertainment list very good , nice flight for very reasonable price , much better then LH"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind and pleasant. Meal service and entertainment were more substantial than expected."
Cons: "Extreme delay supposedly as a result of a lightning strike to the plane. About 9 hours delay and a missed connection. The only compensation given for this dealy was a voucher for a 20 Euro meal at the airport restaurant of my choice. I know planes get hit by lightning on average of once a year, but it typically does not take 3 to 4 hours to inspect and confirm the safety of the plane's electrical system. But perhaps better safe than sorrry!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "At check in the website did not allow me to purchase checked baggage. I arrived at the airport and paid 80 Euros to check in my 12kilo bag. I bought I would be proactive and pay for the baggage for my return(only 20 euros). I received only a receipt for the 20 euros, but paid 63,250 drams. Something is shady and I feel duped. The flight was over an hour late with no explanation. There was a plane at the gate when we landed, which added to the tardiness of arrival. They were so non Chalant about so many people missing their connecting flights. It was like they already knew they were going to put us on Lufthansa 2 hours later... polish airlines Is awful- the airport personnel even worse. No one respects standing in line. Airport officials kept cutting into the security lines which literally cost me the 5 minutes that I could have made the flight. I am very diasspointed and kayak should not advertise this airline."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to warsaw by 2 hours, then delayed flight from Warsaw to Rzeszow by 7 hours due to no room on the plane."
Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seat"
Cons: "Flight was delayed (again) so I missed my train. Taxing and bus takes 30min as they do not take bridge :("
Pros: "Comfortable, civilized"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Professional pilots. Variety of movies."
Cons: "Food is junk. Arrogant rude flight attendants. No desire to do their job."
Pros: "The food and entertainment"
Cons: "I did not like the terrible services!"
Cons: "They delayed the departure"
Cons: "The flight was late, almost 45 minutes"
Cons: "I travel internationally regularly on business. Lot Airlines was hands down the worst airline I have ever flown with. They charged me twice for the same exact tickets and then would not refund me the entire fare. The deducted $300 to process back the credit. Personnel, at both the airport and in flight, were curt, uncommodating and lacked customer service. On my return flight from Warsaw there was a large, disruptive group with a number of unruly children & airline staff did nothing to address the children running across seats, screaming and wreaking havoc for over 8 hours. Passengers could not sleep & the noise was unbearable."
Pros: "Lots of movies, food was great and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Even though it was a long haul flight, alcohol needed to be purchased separately."
Pros: "Professional crew."
Cons: "Late boarding, aircraft was full and the seats had very narrow width making the trip very uncomfortable for the passengers. Food was only served for extra payment (I didn't buy budget airline ticket at least the price didn't reflect that!). Parking in Frankfurt far away from the terminal, the busses were waiting long till start fully packed with people very frustrating."
Pros: "We didn't even really fly this route. Had to go to Hamburg then Frankfurt."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled. Employees lied to us about other flight information. Other passengers received food and water as a small compensation and we received nothing, even though our same flight was cancelled. They had to rebook us twice due to their mistake and no one even apologized. Barely made any effort into helping us from their own mistake."
Pros: "The transatlantic plane was great."
Cons: "No alcohol 2/2 flights delayed"
Pros: "I was boarded very professionally. I have a heart condition that requires medication. I explained this to the gate agent to request assistance in boarding and they complied with my request."
Cons: "LOT is not an airline that impressed me in any way. When I flew from Los Angeles to Warsaw, my bag was weighed, and I was told it was over limit. This, in spite of the fact that I weighed this bag on a calibrated scale prior to entering the airport, and my luggage was 5 pounds BELOW the limit. This seemed a blatant attempt to gain additional money from me, because I know the bag was not overweight. The food selections were average at best. Leaving Warsaw traveling to Los Angeles, we left almost an hour past our original scheduled departure do to the need to obtain additional supplies. On my next trip to Europe, I will look for alternate flight providers."
Pros: "Appreciate the heads up on flight changes"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the food wasn't terrible"
Cons: "4 hours late with no explanation and terrible updates left us sitting at the gate the whole yimr"
Cons: "one of our seats did not work properly (3D) and the crew constantly had to manually adjust the seat. It never would go into a full reclining position. Food was good but they did not serve everything that was listed on the menu. My wife ordered the pancakes with berries for breakfast and they said they did not have any. After they told us they did not have this item, another passenger from Russia sitting in 3A started complaining and they miraculously found the pancakes for this passenger. this leaves a bad impression about the service and not what you expect when you buy a business class ticket."
Pros: "very good service"
Pros: "I like everything food and the chaires very comfortable thanks"
Cons: "Nothing to complain Everithing is excellent easy flight Thankyou"
Pros: "The trip was on Boeing 787, good legroom, and decent seat recline, food was ok and the flight was on time given that most transatlantic LOT Polish Airlines flights are delayed."
Cons: "The aircraft (B787) was a bit run down. Some of the cabin crew were unprofessional, at at times rude to passengers. No wine/beer offered during the dinner service. They offer "gourmet" cafe on-board for purchase, but one has to go all the way back of the plane to make a purchase, the flight attendants refuse to bring it to the passenger, which I found to be strange."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable"
Pros: "I liked every thing the crew was exelent"
Cons: "Dislike to crowded"
Pros: "I liked that the food was better by comparison with food served on other airlines (part of Star Alliance)."
Cons: "I think it would be nice that staff /crew addresses the passenger in both Polish and English. Most of the time they used only Polish, did not try to ask in English at all.Of course, if I asked for something in English, they can understand and respond. Also, did you always charge for wine and beer? Otherwise, I appreciated it was not as expensive as on the airport or on other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was great, good leg room, comfortable seats, pleasant crew"
Cons: "all good"
Cons: "WAR -FRA Flight cold air blew in all the time. LOT should use no buses for that flight all the time"
Small seats means other passengers thoughtlessly take up your space. At least it’s a short flight.
Cons: "Food is awful if you compare with other major airlines products. Very old plane"
Pros: "The flight was on time, it was overnight - very convenient"
Cons: "I had very noisy neighbours, but it is hardly airline's fault"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "During serving food-i was sitting on the aisles in the middle chairs-some times they served me from the far away."
Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."
Pros: "lots of leg room and entertainment program has lots more choices to choose."
Pros: "The ✈️ and timing"
Cons: "Amounts of food is ridiculously little for someone who gets hungry fast"
Pros: "Flying with Lufthansa as usual was another great experience! The staff at Pearson was helpful. The crew was awesome. Overall happy. But NOT with Kayak."
Cons: "The booking with Kayak was a disappointment! After booking, kayak informed me that I will receive confirmation from LH. I did. There it said 1 piece of luggage is free. However, at the airport I was told that bc I booked with Kayak there are other regulations. The LH receipt where it said FREE didn't count. I paid 60$ per luggage per person. I was mislead!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Being 6' 4'' becomes an issue with modern seats."
Pros: "The pods were great on 777"
Cons: "Couldn't plug in CPAP"
Pros: "I liked the movie selection, the service, and food/drinks."
Cons: "With a 20 minute layover, I barely made the flight and my checked bags/luggage did not make it. This had a horrible influence on my trip and I am heavily disappointed in Air Canada."
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Pros: "The tvs are awesome! They are new and have touchscreens that are actually well designed and can scroll etc. Resolution and sound are great, so I actually feel like I watched my movie and didn't just look at moving blurs with half the dialogue missing. Also the USB ports are great. And the brownie with the meal was delicious."
Cons: "Only one meal on a >9 hour flight, plus one snack which was an uninspiring-looking rectangle of cold pumpkin loaf (it tasted good, but after 7.5 hours in the air it'd be nice to get something more appealing). Other airlines give two meals. It's ridiculous that Air Canada insists on being so stingy with the food."
Pros: "Quiet night flight, friendly service and ok entertainment."
Cons: "No surprise but food definitely nothing special, disliked big fees for baggage."
Pros: "I was reading so much about how cramped and uncomfortable the seats on Air Canadas 787's, but I don't think their product is any worse than most other economy class products out there."
Cons: "Their "continental breakfast" was a dry piece of banana bread and yoghurt. No jam, butter cheese or other spreads to compliment with your bread. Most disappointing "continental breakfast" I have had on a plane!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and that's understandable, my luggage however was lost and I was not fully informed about the delayed luggage process with Air Canada. Now I will be at least 4, maybe even 5 days without my luggage at an international destination."
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "Littled staffed"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Departure lunge has bizarre layout. Most seating is in cafe's. No separate seatin area for boarding meant a melee around the gate blocking th path of people walking passed. Premium Economy seats were hard and uncomfortable, meals were below par and the entertainment system sound was shot. I tried three seats and each were unintelligible. Crew was less than stellar."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I was rebooked even though I could have make the connection. I had only a carry on so the luggages were not an issue."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable cabin"
Cons: "Brusque nature of some of the attendants"
Pros: "The staff is old school and very hard on single travelers who are not white Very rude when I asked some questions ,,.. They seem to think low bout the bout their Indian customers .. They need to be educated some of the Indians can be law abiding and decent people who Can be citiEns of Europe or the US Their thinkng is very racial or prehistoric Only reason I didn't make a scene of it is because I was jet lagged Be careful next time or just don't give me a ticket !!"
Cons: "Racist MF staff"
Pros: "Nice new plane Decent food Very clean Friendly staff Ok entertainment"
Cons: "People had a lot of bags, and their zone boarding concept means I got on last and little to no room for my one average carry on..."
Pros: "We got exit row seats and had tons of room - without an upcharge. We even got a hot breakfast in economy for free. Our first bad was free too - love Lufthansa (who operated flight fir air canada)"
Cons: "Need bigger coffee cups!"
Pros: "Easy flight , no late"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "There we're many open seats due to a problem with connecting flights, so my son was able to stretch out across the middle chairs to sleep."
Cons: "the food portions we're small, and we only had a small muffin towards the end of the flight. Ive never left an international flight hungry before. I was shocked that we did not have an actual meal at the end of the 8 hour flight."
Cons: "The seats were VERY cramped, especially for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Pros: "good entertainment choices"
Cons: "I was on a transatlantic flight overnight, and in coach. Not enough room to get comfortable."
Cons: "I paid for a flight on a Lufthansa plane, not an Air Canada plane. There was a two hour delay on the flight that I was not informed about. There was also no organization for boarding the plane, and you had two flights going to the same place boarding at the same time."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The boarding was a serious problem as there were no well defined waiting areas for over 400 people to board, blocking the way for other people to walk around the gates. The Toronto airport decided to board two flights to Frankfurt by two different airlines directly next to each other at about the same time, leading to lots of confusion. My frustration was increased by the fact that the airline managed to forget my luggage at transfer, while my travel companions was "just" delayed. during flight while the service was good, the quality of food was very low. The frustration was even further increased , the through the delay of the plane and the luggage problems our rental car reservation was expired as they only hold cars for 1 hour after scheduled reservation. The later not the fault of the airline, but i will certainly consider other airlines and rental car companies in my future Travel consideration unless the return trip experience changes my mind."
Cons: "We left 2 hrs. late. I had only 45 min. to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Had to run through that huge airport with a broken toe!"
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."
Cons: "Delay in Our connection in Toronto caused us to miss the connection in Frankfurt - not because we couldn't run, but because it left before our delayed plane arrived. Then they gave us Stand By tickets for their problem. No exaggeration: The crew rolled a beverage cart in front of the restroom while I was in there. I couldn't leave for about 4 minutes The food made me vomit. That's why I was in the restroom when they blocked me in My headset jack was broken. 500 movies aren't worth anything if I can't hear them"
Pros: "The selection of current movies was varied enough (the content got a little staler on the return trip). The hot food tasted good and was hot. The crew was not stingy with the drinks, which I always like even if they come around fewer times"
Cons: "How hard it is to be comfortable/sleep in the tiny seat."
Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
Cons: "They are so incompetent that they had us arriving in Germany on May 3 and connecting on May 2. We had to have the ticket rewritten TWICE."
Pros: "Crew very attending, helpful."
Pros: "Lost luggage. Delayed flight. Routed via two stops. Requested for not provided. List is long"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Delayed flight. Routed via two stops. Requested for not provided. List is long"
Cons: "Was upgraded, so higher level of satisfaction"
Pros: "Nice for a long flight - attendants and entertainment was as nice as possible"
Cons: "What else can be said for airline food that has been left untold"
Cons: "Impossible to reserve seat when booking my f not booked on the air ananda website Very cheap food and no food selection on board ( intercontinental flights) I fly 25/30 intercontinental per year... I had never happened to find such a poor company around. very disappointing"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "We are retired adults and seated with at least a dozen young children around us, it was so loud. The two year old next to me kicked me off and on the whole flight."
Cons: "My passport was still valid but didn't have the 3-6 months left on it (a rule I didn't know about) and was told about this at the air canada counter without any concern or direction. Was in shock."
