Pros: "Overall not bad at all :)"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and efficient. The flight was uneventful"
Cons: "Free drinks. More options for free snacks"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating for a tall person. Cut out the drink and snack service. People can toughen up. Just offer water without using the snack cart."
Cons: "Chairs are not comfy and no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew took care of my wife and I when our flights were accidently cancelled. Literally were the last people on the plane. It was unbelievable to see their efforts and patience. Completely grateful."
Pros: "Everything was fine with crew and food."
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 2hours due to technical snag"
Pros: "Crew was fine...but, 2nd trip with WestJet and 2nd time my luggage didnt arruve with me. Beyond inconvenient."
Cons: "Having my luggage!!!"
Cons: "Sat in Plus. Horrible service. No hot towels. Had to ask for 2nd drink and was refused a coffee and Baileys with at least an hour left in flight. No snacks offered or served. The attendant spent most of her flight hiding in her seat and reading a novel. Brutal!"
Pros: "Not much, other than it got us to our destination about 15 minutes ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The food on WestJet is atrocious when you purchase Plus seats. If you are on a flight less than 2.5 hrs you get cookies or pretzels and poor wine. If you are on a flight over 2.5 hrs you get some hot in a box. I had an egg and bacon fajita. The fajita was like warm cardboard."
Pros: "Our l;uggage did not make it to palmSprins, our final destination It seems they found it, but has not delivered to as as of 11:00am, 1/5//2019. We arrived Palm Springs 1/4/2019. 12:20am. Still waiting!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided great service."
Pros: "No entertainment (short flight)"
Cons: "Check in was quick and efficient"
Pros: "More leg room in seat than expected."
Cons: "I’ve been at the airport since 9am, it’s almost 9pm now."
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Pros: "Kayak and the WestJet app are a great combination. Overall the trip was excellent. No food (just a light snack from Toornto to Montreal) and no entertainment, but the flight was pleasant."
Cons: "No food, no usb for charging."
Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"
Pros: "Flight right on time"
Cons: "No free food was offered on a 8 hour flight. I won't choose Westjet again."
Pros: "The basics were all up to standard, the flight was very full and because it's such a long flight it is expected to have a few discomforts from time to time..."
Cons: "TURN DOWN THE VOLUME on the announcements, it was so loud I could feel the book I was holding in my hands literally vibrating. I had to plug my ears to tolerate the blasts over the PA. I requested the volume be turned down repeatedly but it was never changed... from London to Calgary. More frequent offers for food/beverage would be appreciated, there were only two rounds made for the entire flight of almost 9hrs. It's just nice to have a bit more flexibility..."
Pros: "The service of the crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No food included just water and Coke."
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Phoenix was even worse than Air Canada. No food available to purchase. Cramped seating. Entertainment system was difficult to navigate...the buttons didn't work half the time, the movies were already playing and all the "bad" words were edited out which changed the entire movie. Waste of time. Would not fly WestJet again based on this experience. And what's the point of checking in online when you're called to verify id again at the check in counter."
Pros: "The lady beside me"
Cons: "The plane"
Pros: "THE YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Pros: "Fast connection, friendly crew."
Pros: "My first trip started on a poor note; I got to airport about an hour before boarding, only to find out that my flight was rescheduled from 9:30am to about 6:15pm ( or so) on that same day without prior notice. I went up to the counter and asked for confirmation for the switch and inquire if there was an issue, which may have affected my original flight. Turned out that the change was due to weather conditions at Toronto (makes sense). I had suggested that it would have been nice to receive some sort of notification, before starting that day way too early and inconvenience of going to pickup my car from the airport parking, only to come back again. The attendant sympathized with my plight and compensated me with a lunch voucher (which was nice of him and WestJet). Matter was resolved; I came back to catch my flight and the trip was wonderful :)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight was rescheduled without receiving any notification from Westjet."
Cons: "The entire flight's baggage never were received. The stewardess even promised that all bags would be received within 20 min. We waited 1 hour until we went to go talk to someone to inquire about the delay. They opened up a baggage claim, but the claim status only ever says open or closed, which says nothing about the status of the bag."
Cons: "Not any bodys fault the crew were trying to be supportive. multiple babys all around the area beside accros and a few rows down. maybe set them all to teh back would be better"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and professional; the flight was safe--by far the top priority!"
Cons: "The plane needed a jump start before we could leave Vancouver (this was during daytime, sunny skies, about +1°C), which didn't inspire confidence in the plane's airworthiness and which delayed our departure by almost an hour. But evidently the crew followed the required procedure and we arrived safely in Calgary. Better to be a bit late than to have an unsafe flight."
Pros: "Nice staff as usual, but rather disorderly boarding, late departure, and very slow baggage delivery at destination."
Cons: "Figure out how to reduce the number of times people have to yank out their passport and boarding pass. Having mechanized baggage machines is much slower. People flow was poorly designed so you got in but had to go against traffic to get out—and overall takes twice the time that waiting in line for an agent took."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Had an aisle seat but was disturbed 4 times throughout the flight. Not impressed"
Pros: "Staff were great"
Cons: "Waited almost half an hour upon arrival to Calgary for a port"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Flight was on time. No overbooking."
Pros: "JP the flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process Too warm"
Pros: "that the pilot was good, the staff witty but not really helpful."
Cons: "the airline staff don't seem to care about the passenger. I needed help because I can't walk far. We had to get our own wheelchair and my son had to ask for a gate pass so that he could take me down to the gate as the airline staff didn't seem to want to take me there. Going through security was okay but not much else was. Was glad to arrive in Kamloops and get to my family."
Pros: "Free booze"
Pros: "Actual flight went off without a hitch to Vancouver no delays in air."
Cons: "We were moved gates which is understandable, however once moved the estimated time of departure was constantly changed and missed. There was a reasonable cause for delay (cleaning up puke) but took abnormally long > 2hrs. Staff did not seem to be really giving it there all (understandable as it was late and they were probably tired)."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, Crew was nice, competent and friendly. The Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "1. Unexpected 25$ checked baggage fee 2.No meal: They only served drinks, pretzels and hard cookies. Extra food needed to be paid for. 3.Older aircraft so no entertainment options other than TV and Movies. (no way to start, pause or end any movies or programs."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "For a flight that lasted close to five hours it seemed a long boring flight."
Pros: "Flight and crew were good. Overall no complaints, just preferences..."
Cons: "Food - wish there were more options. Entertainment - I'm not big on downloading an app to watch tv/movies on wifi and feeling exposed using a public wifi. I'd rather it was a tv like JetBlue has on back of seats. Again, not a complaint, just a preference. I was happy with flight...ended up sleeping since no tv, lol."
Pros: "Fight left on time, crew was friendly, entertainment system worked."
Cons: "Cramped seats made worse by reclining passengers seated in front of me. Couldn't pre-order my meal even though I tried 24 hrs before ( 2 days is apparently the requirement)."
Cons: "Hard seats no padding extrely uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving ywg"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Flight attendant was a little pushy"
Pros: "Quickest flight ever."
Pros: "Great service! Crew was very friendly and happy. Flight was online and landed early"
Cons: "No screen on the back of the chairs"
Pros: "There was a particularly long delay to my flight (6+ hours) and a large degree of uncertainty over whether there would be a flight out that night. However, WestJet staff and crew were particularly helpful and accommodating given the circumstances."
Pros: "Arrivals were on time and airports were comfortable to wait in."
Cons: "Flights were very full and with the small seats it felt cramped."
This was an excellent flight with very few people on board. Only issue was the 30 minute departure delay and this was communicated well so we weren't left hanging. Traveler communications in Cancun airport aren't the best, but that isn't AC's fault.
Pros: "Fast flight Social distancing A whole row to almost every person"
Cons: "AC changed departure lounges and nearly missed flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats. No IFE. Chaotic boarding. Luggage missed flight."
Cons: "I didn’t fly out of Philadelphia because the flight was 5 hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Had to go get my luggage, go home and try to fly today! Terrible! All my plans screwed up!"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Flight was very late (about 90 minutes). Not good, especially after a long flight to Van from New Zealand."
Pros: "Great staff!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing horrible flight"
Cons: "We were delayed 1hour and 45 minutes leaving Vancouver. As a result we missed our flight to Tokyo. We were promised by the flight attendant that our flights would be rebooked upon arrival in SAN Francisco and they were not."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "plane was too small and there was 1.5 hour delay departing"
Cons: "They changed planes and the seats I paid for at reservation were different on the new plane. No warning!!"
Cons: "Plane delayed for 1 hour...lots of kids, very crowd"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times, got on the plane, everything seemed fine and then maintenance crews were on the plane, the door was left open so it was freezing on the plane. Then we were told at 12:30am that it was cancelled. We had to go back through customs, pick up our luggage and find an agent who gave us a voucher for a hotel room. Never made it to the hotel until 1:30am, had to get up at 5:30am, go back to the airport, check our baggage, go through security and customs which the lines were extremely long and get on a 9:30am flight. Horrible!!!!!"
Pros: "Surprise.....on time , have luggage, fabulous crew, large aircraft."
Cons: "That this has not been MY past experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed I had to wait for more than an hour"
Pros: "Quick flight. Great fare pice."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Wirnessed a nasty discussion between crew member and passanger."
Cons: "Very cramped space. Once boarded on air Canada rouge we were told we should have loaded an app while in the airport so we could watch movies etc on our own devices. Too late once you're on the plane!!!! Now an 8 hour flight without ANY entertainment. Would not fly Rouge again."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Why not due the security briefing while we are sitting there delayed?"
Pros: "Nice and safe flight with little turbulence"
Cons: "Not enough room! And stuck between two fidgety guys. One drank six little bottles of whiskey."
Pros: "Awesome crew, very attentive"
Cons: "Air Canada is horrible! They have terrible customer service. Our flight was delayed, and we were on the phone for three hours trying to get things sorted out so that we got to our tour in Egypt on time. I had a few questions on our flight, so I emailed them and received a form letter that I would get a response in 25 business days. If you have any other choice, take it over Air Canada. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "We landed on time."
Cons: "Flight attendant asked if I needed headphones and I said yes,her reply : I need a credit card"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times without any explanation or update from Air Canada at all. Everyone was at the gate ready to board at 6:50. The screen didn't indicate that it was going to be delayed. There was no one from the crew or AC at all at the gate until 8:30. No announcement, whatsoever. Then when we finally arrived at SFO, the plane was circling above SFO in a storm for another one hour and fifteen minutes..."
Pros: "9 hr Flight from London to Vancouver was great, we were in Economy and the plane was half full so we both had 3 seats to sleep, on pretty decent for an economy ticket! Seats in the 777 seem to have more room."
Cons: "Service was good, offered us a 2nd glass of wine, but the food was mediocre."
Pros: "Honestly, can't expect to be ridiculously comfortable being a 6'2 female on an airplane. The staff was friendly, running about doing their jobs. The plane was clean, temperature was a bit chilly but hey, it's all good. Overall, it got me from point a to point b. And that's really all you can ask for. Thanks everyone!"
Cons: "Air was chilly. Leg room obviously because I'm so tall. Other than those two things, it was as enjoyable as it could have possibly been."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Short flight. Great service (got a soda and pretzels on a 30 minute flight)"
Cons: "Small, worn plane."
Pros: "Everything except food."
Cons: "Food. It's edible but the quality of the food is very poor."
Cons: "There was 3 hour delay on the first flight, that made me miss my connecting flight then they booked another flight which was not a direct flight but with an additional stop. I reached Toronto 7 hours later than my original landing time"
Pros: "Seat width was good. Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Canada Air website was malfunctioning, could not check-in, pay for luggage etc. the night before. Said I had an horrible seat when I paid for preferred. 45 minutes on hold only to be told my seat was indeed preferred. Computer problems with the website, she said. Got to check in counter the recommended 3 hours early, no one there till 6 am. Then the check-in desk's computers were all malfunctioning. another 20 minute wait. Plane was small and very old. Didn't know those planes were still in the air. Not good in general for flying. the windows leaked condensation, the computer controlling the flushing of the toilets failed 45 minutes out from our destination. They did get it working just before we landed. The plane had some problem before takeoff and left late, landed late. I WILL NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE AGAIN. Kayak, you need to end your partnership with them."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very polite. One of them spilled one of the dinners right next to me and hardly cleaned it up. I waited for her to come back to clean it but a few hours later, I just cleaned it myself (even though she spilled all of it)."
Pros: "The Seat"
Cons: "The fact that no food was planned for a flight around noon."
Pros: "The gate agent was in a really good mood, and I made her laugh, so she bumped me into business class. The flight crew was awesome."
Cons: "Old, sad, smelly, loud, poor upholstery, seat structure so old and so stressed the guy in front of me was almost in my lap."
Pros: "At least it was fast.."
Cons: "No space, no tv, no food, no music, no blanket, no water, nothing. Pack everything you need or bring your credit card"
Cons: "They need bottled water. Flight was so dry and they were serving tap water. How cheap"
Cons: "I had to pay for Internet despite being a Superelite customer (top Tier flyer on their program). The service was expensive and slow so I only used 30 minutes for $4. Having curtailed my work, I looked for news feeds and Rio Olympic coverage. There was neither. It spoilt an otherwise great experience"
Pros: "I really liked that there were free in-flight movies/tv and that everyone had their own screens so you could choose what to watch or you could have a map pulled up on the screen to show you how far you have travelled and how much further you have left to travel."
Cons: "There wasn't any food offered, no free peanuts/pretzels or food to buy. It wasn't the end of the world or anything but it seemed kind of odd to me. It's also a good thing that I had a movie option because if I didn't then my entire flight would have been filled with the sounds of some children's show that was blasting from a parents laptop and could be heard throughout the entire plane. I was really surprised that none of the flight attendants either asked them to turn it down to a reasonable volume or requested that they give the child headphones."
Pros: "Everything on the international flight was great."
Cons: "Toronto to SLC was horrible. You have to pay extra for everything, even blankets."
Cons: "Moved to another flight despite the fact we were on time to make the flight through security."
Pros: "My scren was´t working ok, and the screen of my sister seat was in ¨wait please..¨ half of the trip. The boarding wasn´t on time but the crew memebers where really nice. Overall okey"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "LGA Gate #6 and #7 to cold, people were freezing. Also, those two gates are like cattle barn."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours !"
Pros: "The flight crew and the ground staff were nice enough."
Cons: "The new policy of charging $25 a flight just for a seat assignment means that it now costs $100.00 just to sit next to your travel companion. I understand charging extra something extra, like a service class upgrade or even some more legroom, but not just to get a seat next to your partner when you booked your flight months in advance. Bottom line: We didn't pay and ended up not just in different rows but in different boarding groups. However, now that we are at our destination, with the $100.00 we saved I'm going to sit next to my spouse at a very nice restaurant, enjoying a fine dinner! Seems like a better use of our money."
Cons: "My flight with Air Canada from Barcelona to the final destination of Atl was an awful experience. Our flight was delayed for no apparent reason causing my friend and I to miss our connecting flight. The Air Canada crew did re-book our connecting flight, however there was so much confusion on whether or not we had to go through customs since we landed in Montreal and our new flight was with Delta not Air Canada, that we ended up rushing through lines after lines of customs in the Montreal airport only to learn we could have avoided it all. On top of that, we were told multiple things about our baggage. To be safe we tried to go through customs and pick up our bags to be rechecked, but our bags weren't there. When we asked they said they had been put on our Delta flight, however in actuality they were stored in a closest. Needless to say, our bags did not travel with us and my friend and I had to spend hours at the Atl airport trying to locate our bags and arrange to have them flown to Atl and delivered to us. The flight itself was okay but their in flight entertainment options were awful. You either have to download the Air Canada app (which wouldnt download) or rent an Ipad for $10. The food wasn't great either. The crew members were nice but a little impatient and the bathrooms were gross. Overall, I won't fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Pros: "Paid for extended legroom, which was adequate."
Cons: "The plane in the middle in front areas was very, very warm. On a six hour flight, everyone sweated the whole way."
Pros: "The process through Heathrow was easy and efficient. Boarding was fairly quick for an international, large flight. The staff were always accommodating and friendly. I was comfortable in the seat, I am a small person but I did notice that the seat was significantly larger than other flights I have been on, and appreciated the entertainment, which had a great selection of movies."
Cons: "The meal served was very nice. The snack served after was a spicy chicken wrap and I really must question the wisdom of serving anything spicy in an enclosed environment with a limited number of toilets."
Pros: "Nothing. Simply don't buy off of kayak"
Cons: "Liars. Flight lost my baggage. Left gate late as usual. Awful flight with shitty crew"
