It’s disappointing that WestJet still doesn’t offer food on board. However the flight attendants were very nice and the flight was quick.
Really different experience sitting in business! Comfortable and great service.
Pros: "The crew was very patient to get all the passengers' needs from gate-to-gate. The flight was very smooth, landing to takeoff, and arrived on-time!"
Cons: "If the flight just got cancelled from the get-go and if the airline reimbursed us or gave us flight credit."
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Smiling and friendly. Food for purchase was expensive but pretty reasonably for airplane prices"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment made for a long flight"
Cons: "Everything, this is the fist and last time we flight with you guys, flight delayed, my husband was not in the system, lost connection, and in our way back same thing, worse experience ever"
Cons: "The quality of the video streaming was really low. It was disappointing."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew, plenty of leg room as well."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not provided. No in-seat entertainment. Late take-off on every single leg of my trip"
Cons: "Can't expect anything from seat sale flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed to 8:50 from Vancouver to Toronto. I got to the check in counter at 8:00 but was denied to check in my luggage though the cut off time is 45 minutes. So I wasted my tickets."
Cons: "Lavatory was too small"
Cons: "very poor customer service boarding and in flight."
Pros: "Crew are always the best on WJ:) All smiles, real people, love it :)"
Cons: "On board entertainment not working :("
Pros: "The legroom in economy was good. The staff were very pleasant and they even tried to comfort/distract a crying toddler."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours which meant that it didn't arrive in Toronto until 2:40am, this made it difficult for being picked up. I wasn't aware that this was a basic ticket (I bought it through 3rd party website) which meant that I couldn't prebook my seat. After checkin online and paying for the seat it also meant that the seat couldn't be changed even though there were several available seats. There were no entertainment centres at each seat which was also a real surprise. I didn't have the Westjet app therefore I couldn't have access to the movies as I didn't want to have to pay for internet."
Cons: "Way too cramped. Only 1 washroom."
Cons: "Aisle seat in the last row...what a miserable experience. Unpleasant smell whenever someone does a number two in the lavatory. People hovering over you as they wait to use the lavatory, and constantly bumping into you as they walk by (an unfortunate consequence of the obesity epidemic). The area where parents bring their babies to cry. Seat does not recline so no relief on my back. Seat in front reclines so even less space for me. One of the last to leave the plane...particulary slow on my trip as suggested by the comments made by flight attendants."
Pros: "It wasnt bad"
Cons: "I didnt like that you changed my flight last minute (20 hours before flying) from WestJet to Delta. And you changed it from a flight to Toronto to a flight to Seattle. Which made it an International flight, causing me to have to be at YVR airport earlier.."
Cons: "Booked our seats 24 hours in advance and could not get seats together. Airline expects us to pay extra for reasonable expectations as that"
Cons: "I had safety concerns on the flight from YVR to Toronto because seated in the exit row were two individuals who were brought to the gate assisted on a cart and had to wait for assistance to get on and off the flight. They had very poor ambulation which made me nervous as these people have agreed, by sitting in the exit row, that they are able and willing to help in the case of an emergency evacuation. This was not a safe situation and was noted by several passengers."
Pros: "Care by crew"
Cons: "Premium seat a disappointment for the money $120 Awful food cold and spongy sandwich"
Pros: "Crew were friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited to what was being broadcast on regular cable channels. No movies or on demand content were available. Assigned seats were different than what was reserved during booking."
Pros: "The crew were very amiable and one member in particular was quite funny during the seat belt demonstration. First one I've paid attention to the entire time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold and seats were quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "One thing that was thoroughly entertaining and unique was magic mory our flight attendant. She was brilliant and fun making jokes or comments when she made announcements. I have never heard anyone like that before and loved it. It was no like the nonchalant speaking that no one wants to listen to because they’ve heard it so many times before. When Magic Mory spoke, she made sure she was entertaining us, cared cause she knows we listened to it who knows how many times. Thanks for the authentic experience on west jet Magic Mory! I personally love how she also made a little song dedication and sung over the intercom. Thanks for a memory experience!!"
Pros: "Great legroom. Rare intodays airplane flight"
Cons: "No food for long haul flight"
Pros: "Haven't taken it yet"
Cons: "Well I'm not on the plane yet cause you left.me stuck in Vancouver"
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: "Woman in seat beside should have taken 2 seats"
Pros: "Very spacious. Not an overfull flight Seems like they offer a lot"
Pros: "The lady beside me"
Cons: "The plane"
Pros: "No much.."
Cons: "To start.. due to your company combining two out going Toronto flights in Vancouver and then being late off the ground in Vancouver because if that we missed our connecting flight in Toronto to Ottawa. This in turn made us miss a very important appointment in Ottawa. I’m sure the company loves that they saved money by combining those flights however you flunked the test with me. All the corporate could care less about me missing my flight after they look at the bottom line but I will be taking my $1600 plus money elsewhere in the future because of the aggravation, frustration and I don’t care attitude that your company has provided me. I’ll I want to do is get back to Vancouver in my return flight hopefully put most likely on time with my two girls and forget that your company does exists. Thanks for the headaches and goodbye.."
Pros: "Snacks and service. Left on time."
Cons: "Seats didn't have charging slots."
Pros: "I felt like the price was reasonable."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs and again the head rests didn't work. I also feel like the chairs don't recline as much as they use to. The good vibe and hospitality of Westjet was gone."
Pros: "There was a cute doctor and someone made a joke about the movie Alive. That was funny."
Cons: "There was a sick lady and she wouldn't stop coughing. That was gross"
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: "Quick flight, boarding in Vancouver easy, close to security, it crowded."
Cons: "Connection in Toronto was tight. The flight to bos boarded late so we didn’t miss it but we cleared security and customs to US and ended up there 5 min after scheduled pre boarding time."
Cons: "flight was delayed and missed my connection. no flights to atlanta for 2 days."
Pros: "I preordered a Chopped Leaf salad and would do again. I like that West Jet loads back of plane first."
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t available from Vancouver to Toronto."
Pros: "Westjet probably has the best crew in the industry. Always so helpful and genuinely interested, caring and having fun."
Cons: "No plugins, and a pretty cramped plane in general."
Pros: "I loved having the econnect so that I was able to control my own entertainment. The app is good for tracking the flight status. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "Nothing was bad. I am Very impressed and looking forward to the return flight."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff were polite and nice."
Cons: "Everything on a WestJet flight is extra and only the bare minimum is offered. There are no TVs in the seats and the seats themselves are small and jammed close together."
Pros: "The staff was very nice they got me water right away when I had to take my puffers as someone had perfume on"
Cons: "2cookies and a drink of orange juice on a 5 hour flight is food and no movie for five hours I could of got that on air Canada but one hour difference I took this flight comb"
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: "The people that work for WestJet are exceptional! I find everyone there is knowledge, helpful and happy. The last one is why I fly with WestJet. Its a real treat to be so well taken care of."
Pros: "It was a safe and clean flight"
Cons: "Having to rent a tablet to view movies"
Pros: "Air hostess’ were really nice"
Cons: "No snacks offered"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seat wasn't reclining and was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Air Transat was awsome"
Pros: "The flight was without a hitch. One of the washroom in the plane was out of service but it was a non-issue. My vegetarian meal was the same from my departure flight but still ok. The mac and cheese for kids meal was also not bad. Entertainment was also good. There were a lot of choices for all ages."
Cons: "We waited for a few minutes at the corridor for the shuttle to take us to the plane. Maybe there was only 1 shuttle instead of 2 to take the passengers."
Cons: "To have known that you had to do security twice without leaving the boarding area."
Pros: "Crew is nice."
Cons: "Had to wait 15 mins because our gate was in use. Seats are old and hard."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "Food was terrible. The seat was hard and uncomfortable."
Cons: "We boarded late and arrived late."
Pros: "There was an empty seat next to mine so could stretch my legs..."
Cons: "Late departure, late arrival... Had to use a ptv which took forever. Had to run for connection flight."
Pros: "Boarding was almost on time. Crew was good."
Cons: "Why did I pay additional $200 dollars to check 1 bag? $70 Canadian there, $50 pounds back (converted to $100 on my bank app.) Ridiculous won't be flying this airline again. Food was terrible - didn't eat. The crew didn't turn off the plane lights to MCR overnight flight, didn't sleep even 1 minute."
Pros: "The crew service was polite and efficient. As I have long legs, the distance between seats means I can't move around much."
Cons: "Travelling in economy class means the food is okay but not great. It used to be better a few years ago before the intense competition between airlines for passengers."
Pros: "Nice crew. Nice flying."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. It was nice that the crew was overheard offering the emergency seating to passengers with very long legs. And to be honest, our flight into Orlando was fantastic. It was just our flight back to Toronto that we had problems with."
Cons: "Plane smelled. Seats were way too close together. No leg room at all. Also, I know it wasn't air transat 's fault but there was a toddler behind me kicking my seat for three hours. I am also irritated that we had to bring both our passports and our nexus passes because air transat won't take nexus."
Pros: "The crew was professional and did a great job making sure everyone was informed and well looked after."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane. All on time . Good experience."
Pros: "It is already bad to travel overnight. When flight is late, that makes it really bad"
Cons: "Flught was 90 mins late leaving becuse of equipment failure. Missed my meeting."
Cons: "It took almost an hour from landing for our luggage to make it to the belt. For a domestic flight, this is really poor."
Cons: "flight was delayed in both directions; very few announcements; the crew were ok, but there was not much service in the hour we waited foe the plane to take off and during the flight"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, sweet and accommodating. I had a seat by the exit which I luckily didn't have to pay extra for and the leg room was ample and really helpful on a long flight. The meal was pretty good, but I really wished airlines would stop wasting so much plastic - I think there should be a way we can support the environment better when flying."
Cons: "I didn't realize Air Transat was a bare-bones airline (not that my flight was cheap in cost) - we didn't have pillows or blankets for the flight (10 hours) and had to pay for them! Seems like that should be standard on a long haul flight. The seats are very narrow with poor back support, and my back started to hurt 5 hours in. Many people were standing in the aisles as it was so uncomfortable. I was very cold throughout the flight, which was another uncomfortable aspect. One of the bathrooms was out of order which resulted in everyone using the same one - you can imagine how smelly and messy it got."
Pros: "Hassle free and easy. Since our airport arrival was ddlayed by rush hour traffic, the check jn process was made easier by the Air Transit attendant's assistance to be processed through fast track security clearance."
Cons: "The Food and Entertainment raiting above should be understood as Not Applicapble"
Pros: "Food was better than on my flight to Porto"
Cons: "There was no water in the washrooms from the start of an 8 hour flight!"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Didn’t leave on time"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient, and made all the difference."
Cons: "Since we booked online, we were told that we couldn’t pre-book our seats for this flight. So even though we arrived more than three hours ahead, we couldn’t sit together for this nine hour flight. After having the same thing happen on the way to Barcelona, it was really disappointing."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and the flights were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was catastrophic, just mush."
Pros: "On time,I could charge my mobile"
Cons: "The curser of the smart screen was hard to use"
Pros: "Worse experience, air hostess don’t wear gloves while serving food and beverages. They usually had there fingers in everything. When told air hostess was rude and never responded"
Cons: "Worse experience, air hostess don’t wear gloves while serving food and beverages. They usually had there fingers in everything. When told air hostess was rude and never responded"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 2 hours and there was no notification about it so that I could've planned my journey better. Even though the flight was delayed - the airport boards also showed the flight to be on time. Due to that I showed up on time of the original flight time and had to wait a long time at the airport."
Cons: "9 hour flight and only a few shared tiny screens to watch films on. Terrible and outdated"
Pros: "meals, attendants were pleasant and informative."
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "Stewardesses were great..... Very Helpful"
Cons: "Plane was dated ..... Bathrooms not clean."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly attendants."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold."
Cons: "They ran out of food on both trips"
Pros: "It was a mediocre flight, what can I say: minimal leg room, right isle spaces and not nearly enough room to be comfortable. The in flight accommodation was a nice touch. No snacks but free soda/juice/water provided"
Cons: "Nearly zero personal space. The leg room was so minimal for a woman of 5'6 that when the lovely person in front of me reclined I had no choice but to invade the person next to me. There were no snacks provided and overall an uncomfortable experience."
Cons: "Sitting in Toronto for three hours past scheduled boarding, minimal information. Missed my train out of Gatwick and only two pieces of luddage out of three."
Cons: "Last week lost my luggage on a direct flight. Flight to Toronto would not let me print my boarding pass after I had checked in online and had no checked baggage to be delivered. Missed my flight due to this as the company was debating to print my pass"
Pros: "Good variety of food and snacks-and free! Long flight with good leg room. Only issue was strike that was taking place that prevented us from disembarking immediately."
Pros: "Great, smooth flight and landing!"
Pros: "We paid extra for the options plus on this flight, which meant that we were able to choose our seats, we were given snacks, bottles of wine with our meal, blankets, pillows, face masks and headphones. Everyone else had to pay for these items on flight (if they wanted them). As a result we felt like royalty."
Cons: "Unfortunately you can never escape the family with the screaming baby..."
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours in he plane, on the Tarmac waiting to leave. Why can't passengers remain in the airport until the plane is ready?"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "No space between seats and food could be better when flying over 8 hours."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and mine wouldn't recline. There was no leg room . I sat by a larger woman and had no body space . I was touching her the whole time . I couldn't sleep the whole time. It was like torture."
Pros: "extra leg room extra luggage allowed priority boarding because I had option plus on the international leg of the journey"
Cons: "No individual TV screen. No option plus offered No movies staff a little irritable when I asked to buy food as they were all attending to club class. staff much more pleasant on the international leg of the journey"
Cons: "Having bigger seats/personal space would be nice for such long flights."
Cons: "Older, tight space plane with a kids movie on overhead screens."
Pros: "I upgraded. What a difference!! First time travelling by Air Transat but hopefully not my last!! Great experience from start to finish."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great! Wish we could give more than 5 stars to some of the categories. The crew were amazing!!"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Deboarded at farthest terminal, they misplaced some of our luggage, moved location of luggage retrieval to further away after making us wait for over an hour. Took forever to finally have luggage arrive."
Pros: "We were able to select our seats and got front row with amazing leg room - we are both tall so it really made our trip! Staff were attentive and friendly and in flight entertainment options were awesome - lots of shows and movies and games to select from. Our flight departed and arrived perfectly on time. We will 100% be travelling with Air Transat again!"
Cons: "Typical airline food however other options were available for additional cost. I have no real complaints!"
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive. Food much better than expected on any airline these days."
Cons: "Boarding in Venice was a disaster. NO FAULT of Air Transat's! This was complete incompetence in Venice with shuttle busses. The on board entertainment on this particular type of Airbus is antiquated. Also NONE of tour Android devices could make the downloadable entertainment app work. It always crashed on starting a movie or show."
Pros: "Empty middle seat so more room."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything is too cramped. The sound on the entertainment unit is terrible."
Pros: "Air Canada is always a great travel experience."
Cons: "The food is terrible. It's the worst I've had from any airline."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "The vegetarian meals, they were not enjoyable, we actually couldn’t eat them. I wish we had not gotten vegetarian meals as the regular breakfast was a choice between pancakes or omelet with fresh fruit, which where both vegetarian. They need to make a difference between vegetarian and vegan."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, has good entertainment program. Uncomplicated easy boarding."
Cons: "Food for 9 h wish to be better: dinner was cold (you could feel that chicken was warmed in microwave, but pasta was just taken from fridge), breakfast was pathetic. In last seats to many overhead compartments was secured for equipment or occupied by crew"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "The zone system seems to work well for boarding and the cabin crew on my flight to London were superb, helpful and polite to myself and others, despite a few impatient passengers."
Pros: "The flight was on time check in was simple and quick Staff on board friendly and professional Inflight movies fab Plenty of room on seats clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing all great"
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Pros: "The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?"
Cons: "The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant."
Pros: "Will use again"
Cons: "Airline food has always been poor no matter which airline you travel. Be more liberal with the drinks trolley."
Pros: "Good leg room. Staff friendly and helpful. Really great flight."
Cons: "Horrible customer service from check in through to the flight attendants. Needed to download app on my phone for an international flight in order to watch movies. Was very unimpressed with the experience."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No TV monitors and food was bad"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."
Cons: "Air Canada offers this flight DAILY. Yet somehow the boarding was the most excruciating tedious I’ve had to endure. Passengers who needed assistance boarding seemed to have to deal with haphazard organisation, and the fact that they seemed surprised so many people brought carry-on luggage that the bins filled up is laughable. Changed my return flight to Alaska Air."
Pros: "My good friend John came to pick me up even though it arrived at 1 am instead of 9 pm....."
Cons: "The wait for plane to be ready. There was a technical problem which delayed it. They gave us a discount coupon and I don't even know what kind of discount we will get. They should have just given us a free one way for a similar route."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Clearing immigration in Vancouver is very convenient"
Cons: "Food choices are limited and expensive."
Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "Overall very very good - could offer more water throughout flight."
Cons: "Pressed the service bell mutiple over 30 minutes, no one came. Had to get out of my seat and walk to the back of the plane where I found all the attendants having a chat. Not even a sorry from them."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Pros: "Food ok crew and staff very helpful"
Pros: "The plane was on time, boarding was orderly and smooth, service was excellent, and they did a good job on the weather. As a pilot, I would rate it an all around excellent flight."
Pros: "screen and interface"
Cons: "back of seat/head rest uncomfortable, average food in very small quantities films not refreshed fast enough, same in and out flights"
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."
Pros: "Comfortable, well maintained aircraft. Good entertainment. Friendly crew. Boarding process was well conceived. They separated seating zones into different queues, and turned back people who attempted to board out of order."
Cons: "Breakfast was underwhelming for an international flight. Dinner was just average. The crew seemed to have trouble responding to things like...people using restrooms late during the descent, passengers making themselves a little too "at home" and thereby disturbing their neighbors, and repeated chimes due to an errant elbow on a call button...the little things. They are things you don't notice when a crew is highly attentive, as you find on Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, or Air New Zealand. The crew were friendly, but not quite in charge."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight - had the luxury of a row to myself in economy. Food and drink service was great and the crew were very friendly. The 787 is a pleasure to fly on."
Cons: "More movies and TV - flew with Air Canada 6 times in 6 weeks so I was starting to run out of entertainment options."
Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats being marked @ $ 16 and $42 upto 24 hours before flight"
Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."
Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."
Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
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."
Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."
Pros: "Crew was nice and very helpful.. Nice selection of movies.."
Cons: "Food could be improved.. no flavor and it looked over cooked.. Drinking cups could be switched to paper cups.. or recycled one's.. Packaging and overall rubbish could also be reduced. 777 seats were to narrow.. bigger seats are a must for such long flights. Internet access could be free.. with a limit of course.."
Pros: "The person we sat next to. And the great flying of the pilots."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Requested a wheel chair from the curb . Upon arrival, no wheel chair. we waited and waited. Then my friend went and got a wheel chair for me. we then joined our two friends, who also had wheelchairs. however, they had first class and was taken immediately to the first class lounge. I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way. Air Canada mad sure of that. also Not a peanut unless we spent money!!!"
