Pros: "Full refund for cancelled flight"
Cons: "Frustrating but it’s a weather thing"
Pros: "The lady was calm at the gate, explaining that we wouldn’t be leaving and trying to help everyone flipping out. 1. Flight was delayed 2. More delayed, meaning we miss connections in Calgary 3. Canceled"
Cons: "While my flight was to Abbotsford, my final destination was to the US (Seattle). Canceling the flight meant I miss my 4 hour ride home from Abbotsford. When asking if I could change my final destination, only destinations in Canada would be allowed. I spent a fortune getting flights, planning rides, to make it home by the 26th and tend to responsibilities by the 27th. I realize weather delayed the flight, but once in Calgary, it would have been nice for WestJet to even scope the opportunity to get me home. #StrandedinCanada"

Cons: "More than one hour delay Unfriendly check-in"
Pros: "great price, direct flight, free checked bag, snacks on the flight, nice crew... this carrier is better than the competition in every single way except 1"
Cons: "Plane ride was a bit like a wooden rollercoaster, but the ol' boat held together. Thus the one thing I "dislike" is the age of the fleet."
Pros: "Head flight attendant who gave all the message was not friendly, rushed through her messages like she was not enjoying herself at her job."
Cons: "We left the gate late by 20 minutes only to stand in line with 8 or so other planes waiting to taxi to runway for take off. No explanation was given. However pilot did make up 30 minutes of that time in the air."

Pros: "Crew was good, flight itself was smooth and uneventful"
Cons: "Plane was full and very cramped. I am a small person and felt uncomfortable! A crying baby the entire trip and a screaming grade-schoolers who’s parents ( or crew) never told her to please stop screaming. A big headache when I arrived in LA. It felt like a 6 hour flight!"
Pros: "Seats had room. Entertainment options were quite good."
Cons: "WestJet has lost its Chutzpah. No longer knows it’s identity. Food choices were terrible for a 5.5 hour flight, and the couple of okay choices they were out of very quickly. Crew was friendly enough but no sparkle."
Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "No one would get a wheelchair to get to cart that was on different floor. Driver didn't volunteer to carry bags to cart."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was fine except the delay waiting for the new crew."

Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"
Pros: "Had a fantastic experience on my first round trip with WestJet. Very satisfied, would definitely fly them again. I also liked how we were able to clear Customers BEFORE we departed from YVR; made the arrival that much smoother when we landed at SFO"
Pros: "Uncomfortable, babies crying. Flight attendants disappeared after first drinks. No offers of head phones, snacks etc Delta Flight from Tampa to Minneapolis was excellent"
Cons: "Mentioned above"
Pros: "Really a pretty good trip in my opinion."
Cons: "Not too thrilled with the fact that only a couple of drinks and light snacks are free."
Cons: "Their check in was not a boarding pass which prevented me from using Quick Connect from Immigration. So I reached the terminal counter art the FAR end of the terminal with 15 minutes to apare. The agent told me that wss not enouhh time to make the flight. I had to wait almost 4 houts for the last flight if the night to get there"
Pros: "The check in staff are very helpful and kind especially Rachel! The service was excellent very happy and helpful staff during our flight. The pilots made such a smooth landing and we are so thankful to be home safely!"

Pros: "Easy check in and nice crew!!!! No complaints at all!!! I would fly them again!!! I would definitely recommend them to others!"
Pros: "It was a quiet flight. Quick loading. Got to sit with my friends."

Cons: "There was a sick lady and she wouldn't stop coughing. That was gross"
Pros: "The ticket price was great. The crew were nice."
Cons: "There is no monitor in front of you/in-plane, so bring your own tablet"
Pros: "Our flight from Australia was delayed, resulting in our missing our connecting Westjet flight. Not only did Westjet get us on the next available flight, but the staff were friendly and very helpful. They made it seem like it was no problem at all, even though we were on the cheapest fare."
Pros: "Staff and aervice was great! No complaint!"
Cons: "We had to put our carry on bags a little far away from our seats"
Pros: "Nice flight crew."
Cons: "Ground crew couldn’t get luggage on plane fast enough because of lack of staff so we sat on tarmac for 2 hours."
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is awful to non-existent. The wifi doesn't work especially on a laptop. On the return flight is wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!! The 20 schedule changes and very confusing schedule (they showed us on 2 separate flights from DTW on Dec 25th morning). I have no idea how that would happen. The gate agent at Delta (first leg) had a hell of a time sorting it out despite a long call to the WJ help desk."
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: "Flight crew was excellent. Very attentive to passenger needs and requests."
Cons: "Food choices were limited and they ran out of basic choice. Had very limited wine from menu - should really restock before a long flight like YVR to KOA."
Cons: "Generally announcemect is too fast and not clear, especially the boarding anouncement regarding the order of boarding is not clear. Please be more considerate for the aged and hard of hearing, infrequent traveller."
Pros: "Flight was good, crew was courteous and boarded on time. Cabin space was adequate and the entertainment provided through WestJet’s app is very good."
Cons: "We left late and had a very hard landing"
Pros: "Charlotte and Johnny spiced up the safety brief with some humor, it definitely made the flight more enjoyable and to have a friendly, funny and relaxed flight crew."
Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"
Pros: "Short flight. Home on time."
Cons: "To the best of my knowledge I paid for a window seat on my trip to Montreal. It was the only option I elected to pay for, yet, I found myself in the middle seat. A personal life lesson we’ll learned and an experience to be remembered & considered, under advisement, on any future bookings."
Pros: "The person giving the announcements was HILARIOUS. Made listening to the usual safety info much more fun."
Cons: "The French on the flight was a little wonky in that it kind of came in in chunks instead of one flowy message like it did in english"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great and the only positive part of my experience."
Cons: "I was put into the long line to check my luggage with 75 minutes to take off. Of course I missed my direct flight as I was put into a long line. The man who listened to me complain was very kind and empathetic and the only good part about being forced to miss my flight. "We stop loading X amount of minutes before take off" I can't remember the exact number but there was ten minutes to spare before said time when they stopped loading. Dealt with it. Not happy but at least my luggage wasn't lost. Will I fly with WestJet again? Probably. Will I expect some sort of hang up and/or inconvenience? Definitely."
Cons: "crew could have been more professional, the signs for boarding were confusing"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and the crew was excellent. The boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "My center seat, which was assigned, put me in an extremely uncomfortable position physically for the entire 14 hour flight. My two seatmates extended physically into my space, and minimal legroom meant by knees were pressed against the seat in front. I was not happy at the lack of seat choice."
Cons: "Embarked late. Sat on runway for 30 minutes waiting to disembark. Missed ride to Eugene Or. Not happy."
Pros: "Liked the comfort of the plane, on time, and smooth touchdown"
Cons: "Food was dried out, crew was extremely slow to dispense beverages and food"
Pros: "Great plane B 787"
Cons: "Paid online for food and most choices gone Overpriced"
Pros: "Good service, surprisingly good food, smooth and efficient."
Cons: "The premium seating we paid extra for because we need leg room (my partner and I are 6'+) was the first row behind the 1st class seperation wall...so no way to extend legs by placing feet under the seat in front. Not very comfortable or worth $100 IMO."
Cons: "No potable water on board meant no tea or coffee."
Cons: "Luggage took forever to get in Halifax"
Pros: "nice crew, very attentive"
Cons: "no movies, charge for food"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the flight. The flight had some nice"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food options, Air Canada used to have tasty food!"
Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seat was kind of tight."
Cons: "Started off by being 40 mins delayed. Not bad, compared to the 4 hour delay I had going to Vancouver. Flight was super uncomfortable. Upon arrival to Toronto. The gate had ice on it. So we had to wait in the plane for over an hour before we could get to a gate and off the plane. And then the entire plane of people (300-400 people I believe?) had to wait for our bags to come out for TWO HOURS! Meanwhile flights from Vancouver that we’re supposed to leave after us , left before us, got there before us, and got their bags before us. Horrible trip. I could not believe how unprofessional and unprepared Air Canada and the Toronto airport was during the holidays!"
Cons: "Why did I have to pay to select my seat? Isn't that the point of purchasing a seat at all? Silly."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "Food was not as good time"
Pros: "Air Canada has one of the best buy on board menu's of any North American carrier. They even allow you to purchase Business Class meals (subject to availability of course). Flying on the older 767-300ER also has more shoulder and leg room than some of Air Canada's newer configurations for the 787 and 777."
Cons: "Air Canada's boarding process is a bit frustrating. On American Airlines and United Flight attendants make announcements over the PA to (a) step out of the aisle to let people pass, and (b) place larger suitcases in the overhead and smaller bags under the seat. That way they try to ensure there is enough bin space to accommodate everyone. Passengers on Air Canada stuff everything in to the overhead bin and nothing under their seat, leaving little for those boarding after and delaying the flight because flight attendants are looking for bin space. If they were more pro-active, it would speed things up."
Pros: "The flight was underbooked, so there was extra seat space. Our delay was cut from 90 min to just 30 min"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to fog in San Francisco"
Pros: "good to have 3 meals for this long haul flight"
Cons: "Flight delay more than 1 hour ! Took very very long to board Poor choice of movie. Too few, Too old"
Pros: "Customs and immigration happens in Canada, not US"
Cons: "Delays, computer malfunction during boarding"
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Lack of in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Your customers are nicer than your staff."
Cons: "Firstly I will start with the lack of service we provided when trying to get seats together after checking in online. We rang and were told to try at the airport counter. Then at the airport counter we were told to try at the gate and then at the gate when I went to ask I was told to go get both tickets before they told us that there was no 2 seats together anyway rather than looking first. All whilst explaining this was our honeymoon and we would really like to sit together as husband and wife. Then once we boarded the guy sitting next to me was happy to swap seats with my wife as he had back problems and had asked for an aisle seat but was denied. Finally we are underway and I find that my entertainment touch screen doesn't work so even though it is one i can't select anything to watch. Plus to top it off the seat arm rest was broken. Obviously with a fairly full flight with no 2 seats together their wasn't much that could be done immediately but where is the maintenance and actual physical plane quality? Do your engineers or staff not check things? Overall dispite this being our national carrier I am ashamed to claim that. Many of our overseas visitors for the wedding from Australia and Europe also had similar complaints."
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "After a bad connection, it was nice to have a smooth flight."
Pros: "The crew was always as good as can be expected BUT THE DELAYS AND LACK OF COMMUNICATION WAS THE ACTUAL LOWEST LEVEL OF AIR FLIGHT WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. TIME AFTER TIME DELAY AFTER DELAY RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS BOTH WAYS!!!"
Cons: "PLEASE SEE WHAT WE DID LIKE HOWEVER AGAIN TO REPEAT THE NUMBER OF DELAYS RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS WAS ABOVE AND BEYOND BELIEVABLE. NO COMMUNICATION BETWEEN GATE AGENTS AND INCORRECT INFO ON FLIGHTS AND DEPARTURE TIMES WAS TRULY BEYOND BELIEF"
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "delayed by 4 hours - had to miss my onward flight & have only 1.5 hours instead of 8 hours"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, one of the ladies was rude and I did not get window, even though I requested with enough time."
Cons: "dirt and stuff on floor between floor and wall, bad, never seen that before in a nearly new plane"
Pros: "I liked having Nexus get me through air Canada's malfunctioning Website to airport chaotic check-in otherwise may have missed my flight! Actual flight was smooth,quick and comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. Airplane interior open and bright. Bathrooms clean and well supplied."
Cons: "Customer's time is valuable too! Air Canada website check-in malfunctioning causes anger, frustration and chaos at home and continues through airport check-in. HUNDREDS of angry, frustrated customers paid for their tickets, tried to check-in online and arrived early all converged into one CHAOTIC crowd. ADDRESS these issues, FIX YOUR WEBSITE, TREAT YOUR HARDWORKING, PAYING CUSTOMERS with DIGNITY and RESPECT they DESERVE. Competing Airlines are waiting for your dissatisfied customers."
Pros: "We didnt crash"
Cons: "We didn't crash"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "I am not an especially large person and felt squeezed into my middle seat without any room to move without bumping into either of the people beside me, who were also small to normally sized. Very uncomfortable! I will avoid this airline again if possible, it was not a pleasant experience. I also didn't have enough room to put my backpack under the seat in front of me and was further confined."
Cons: "Airline oversold seats for my son's flight -- even though I bought my ticket back in April for a flight in November. This is absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "I know it's a growing practice, but to charge for food is a policy that I think is short-sighted."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."
Pros: "The crew were helpful & friendly. The flight arrived on time."
Cons: "The rows of seats were too close together for comfort."
Pros: "That there were no delays."
Cons: "TV was frozen, meaning nothing to do for 5 hours, no alternate option. flight was full, no room for overhead baggage. Spent entirely too much money for these conditions."
Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."
Pros: "Drinks were provided."
Cons: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, and then they lost my baggage, when I landed in Chicago, no bag. A person from United Airlines called me at 7:00 AM the next morning and said that they had my bag. He directed it to GRB that day. Thanks to him I got my bag back!"
Cons: "Missed it due to our first flight being delayed- ended up with ANA air. SCORE!"
Pros: "Clearing customs in Canada"
Cons: "Over priced food"
Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, and actual seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The canbin temperature was kept far too low; unless you are forced to buy some over priced blanket"
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I would have to say Air Canada offered the "best" service, flight, crew and environment I have ever experienced in Business Class."
Cons: "Food could be improved"
