This was not a safe situation and was noted by several passengers."

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.

Pros: "Fast connection, friendly crew."

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to start at 10:20, but was delayed for at least 30 with no updates. In fact, they were still showing the flight as leaving on time up until the last second, which is not ok. Gotta keep the passengers updated folks!"

Pros: "The professionalism. The crew were wonderful. Thank you for the great service."
Cons: "The only problem we had with Westjet was the ramps from the plane to the terminal in Calgary. Pretty steep and my husband tripped on the metal platform on the carpet.

Pros: "The ticket price was great. The crew were nice."

Pros: "I just love WestJet"

Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"

Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"

Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable with enough leg room. Crew was fantastic!! They made it a very entertaining and enjoyable experience, especially the host."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work at all for me. I believe it was also not working for everyone else. The food was also not that great. Portions were tiny, taste was ok, but definitely leaves something to be desired."

Pros: "West jet is a clean and well run company"

Pros: "Flight not full"

Pros: "Being disabled I found everyone very helpful and friendly"

Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"

Cons: "Service in the plus was the worst ever. Extremely slow and we were half through the flight until someone finally came to collect garbage. The flight crew manager sat down most of the flight doing nothing at all. Good at the announcement part but nothing the rest."

Pros: "The male flight attendant on our travel from Vancouver to SFO on 9/4/16 at 7:35pm was hilarious, outgoing and thoroughly entertaining. He brought smiles to many faces and laughter is always appreciated! Great job! As the flight was delayed he also help to lift everyone's spirits."

Pros: "on time friendly comfortable"

Pros: "I ended up being at YV a lot earlier than originally planned, and was able to switch to an earlier flight for less than $80, which was a lot nicer than having to buy a while new ticket for over $300, which would have been my other option."

Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Staff is very pleasant"
Cons: "Where to start? Uncomfortable seats, one snack service, late boarding, late landing"

Pros: "Crew was great and very attentive. Seats surprisingly comfortable for economy."

Cons: "no food served"

Pros: "I liked the free entertainment app"
Cons: "I didn't like the delay but that seemed unavoidable"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The boarding gate person from Westjet was excellent in the way he dealt with my missed flight..........kudos to him"
Cons: "The security staff were not prepared to deal with the sudden increase in volume of passengers. Since there were around 300 people ahead of me I knew I was probably not going to make my flight. I felt as though I wanted to ask everyone there if they minded me going to the front of the line as I was probably going to miss the flight, but felt too intimidated. Of course my onboard bag was flagged for further inspection so when I asked the security agent that was being absolutely riduculas with the inspectioin of the mans belongings ahead of me if she could take a look at mine as I was probably going to miss my flight she just gave me this evil look and said im already looking at this mans things. (she didnt need to state the obvious but maybe a little common sense and tact in helping to resolve customers problems would go a lot further than projecting her power trip. Not impressed at all."

Pros: "Plane change last minute causing ~2 hr delay No voucher or apologies offered for that Baggages took more than one hour to arrive .. Total delay more than 3 hours for a flight that till last minute was supposed to be on time ... Missed my ride in Toronto ... Crew unfriendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew. Amazing seat not confortable"
Cons: "Very nice crew clean plane"

Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with the airline and its services."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This is insulting. I watched my flight pull off from the gate and was then asked to stay at a Holiday Inn. I spent thousands of dollars on my flight, then was forced to spend another $950 on a hotel, food, etc. I was supposed to be home 5 hours ago and still haven’t taken off."

Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "Boarding, it was organized chaos with having to show your passport verification then get in another line to board."

Cons: "They charged me extra 14 USD for checking in, I had never being charged extra for that."

Pros: "the service was great! lots of great movie options"
Cons: "VERY hard to hear important details from the captain. Nothing could be heard. Also, the gate numbers kept changing CONSTANTLY. I was given one then like 4 more at Mexico City. Lastly, our flight was delayed and even after everyone boarded it took about 40 minutes for the plane to take off."

Pros: "the seats do not recline and are uncomfortable"
Cons: "the seats do not recline and are uncomfortable"

Cons: "24hrs in advance, the flight was delayed over 6hrs"

Pros: "The flight from Vancouver to Mexico by Aeromexico was cancelled. I was assigned a different flight at 6am the next morning and we could not board in the last minute when we were at the door (it looks like the flight was overbooked)... Finally we are in Lima but our luggage is lost."
Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."

Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."

Pros: "It was a basic flight. Their check in system was down so they had to hand write boarding passes and baggage tags. They were professional and patient even when a customer started cursing because his bags could not be checked all the way to his final destination due to the computer issues."

Pros: "Decent on flight entertainment"
Cons: "1 hour delay in the flight"

Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"

Cons: "Food too salty"

Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"

Pros: "flight on time, arrived on time. Everyone friendly."
Cons: "As with most airlines, lots of waste with food packaging. Don't need food and with drinks fill cups that can be re-used. Didn't realize our seats in emergency seating don't recline. This was very uncomfortable."

Cons: "No food, no entertainment"

Pros: "Overall great experience."

Cons: "The person in Aeromexico balcony didn't have training to attend clientes in the best way. She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."

Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."

Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"

Pros: "Well organized boarding and time efficient"
Cons: "Food mediocre"

Cons: "On of the meals was cheese flavored mush with boiled green beans."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours and it was never communicated to the passengers through the monitors. None of the flight info was updated on the monitors and we had no idea about: 1. which gate the flight was supposed to depart from 2. the correct time of the new departure since the flight was late 3. whether the flight was canceled all together The monitors showed the flight was on time until the actual time of departure. I almost missed my flight because I was never notified about the information above. The Aeromexico agents at the airport were not helpful at all: they did not know anything about the issue with the flight. I had to stay in a long line just to have them look up the flight in the computer and tell me that the flight was delayed. No other information was given to me. Terrible experience, especially after a long stopover."

Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."

Cons: "Aeromexico's conditions of carriage allow them to cancel your flight rebook you days later with no liability. They pay no compensation for delays that last days . Take at your own risk, I learn the hard way."

Cons: "The heater on the plane were to high"

Pros: "liked the seat and the space. a blanket provided without asking"

Pros: "Everything. Flight was great."
Cons: "That delta operated the flight back to NY"

Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."

Pros: "People in Mexico are very nice."
Cons: "The Mexico DF airport us very crowded and you will be delayed. Avoid it if you can."

Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."

Pros: "Price! And aervife"
Cons: "La aerolinea nondeja documentar ni una maleta en viaje internacionaybesones fuera de lanley ybdijeron q estan amparadoos a esa ley"

Pros: "food was good"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Faster boarding. Decense and luggage arrival."

Cons: "The plane had to go back to Guadalajara after 1hour of flight due to mechanical problems, they had to put us on another plane ,it was scary."

Pros: "Aeromexico stole my money and never let me board a flight. My initial flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after a 3 hour delay in the airport. At this point it was 3AM and all passengers were told to call Aeromexico's support number to re-book their flights. Aeromexico staff does not speak English well and when I asked them to speak slower I was cursed at and hung up on. I finally called again and was given 2 options: agree to a flight that would DESTROY my vacation or get a refund. Scared and exhausted, I told them I didn't understand, and the flight didn't work, and guess what, they re-booked me anyway, and said that since I was re-booked any change to my ticket would entitles them to my entire $1,100 fare. Aeromexico is a criminal enterprise. Never book with them! Kayak, you should cut all ties with this airline!"

Cons: "I'm stuck in this huge airport because the connection time between Mexico City and my next flight to Leon was vastly underestimated. In Vancouver I was assured that one and a half hours would be sufficient but when I saw the line through immigration I realized what a joke that was. That process alone took well over two hours, followed by another hour to pick up my bag, find the correct spot to drop it off again and then re-enter the boarding area. Meanwhile, the shuttle I arranged to pick me up in Leon have one and gone. So, here I sit, exhausted, frustrated and weary, waiting for the next flight, and not knowing how I will get to my destination in the dark hours of the night. I could do with back rub and a shoulder to cry on."

Pros: "Costumer service"
Cons: "If u over weight there make u go back to the end of the line and not for all the passengers"

Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "when I ask for something and they told me they gonna give the forms on the airplane,then they said we are out of this forms?you can get in in the airoport"

Cons: "Been non discriminatory"

Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"

Pros: "awesome"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."

Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."

Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"

Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."

Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."

Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"

Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"

Cons: "Didn’t fly"

Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."

Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"

Cons: "It was an old plane (with short First class) and they changed various time the departure time without explaining until letting us wait without news for an hour on the plane before takeoff... and arriving at Miami without a door available, we had to wait further 30+ minutes in the plane"

Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."

Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."

Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."

Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."

Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."

Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived earlier than expected. Great job by the flight attendants as well! I thoroughly enjoyed my flight back home."

Cons: "No food"

Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."

Cons: "Very cold airplane"

Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""

Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."

Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Cons: "Cero entretaintment"

Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."

Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"

Pros: "Pretty efficient."

Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"

Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."

Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"

Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."

Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."

Cons: "I was so sick of waiting for the delay and remembering my horrible previous flight that I opted to meet my friend who lives in North Carolina and will be driving home to Richmond instead."

Cons: "4:00 pm Flight from Charlotte to Richmond was cancelled; Was unable to reconnect on another flight until 11:00 pm. Waited in airport for over 8 hours. No voucher for food or beverage while waiting. Nothing was even provided on plane not even water"

Cons: "Airline didn't take customs for an international flight into account when scheduling the flight. We had to wait over an hour for "customs" to attend to the arriving flight."

Pros: "I got where I was going and it was cheap. Flight was fine. Attendants where all friendly."
Cons: "Rescheduled to increase my layover in Toronto by a few hours. Layover was long enough that I had to get baggage from carousal and couldn't pass back through security until 4h before my flight. This broke up night even more and the outside of Pearson airport security is not the nicest place to wile away hours."

Pros: "They provided bags, napkins and were very understanding every trip down the aisle to the lavatories"
Cons: "Baggage pick-up facilities at Newark Airport"

Pros: "I liked the fact that they provided beverages and food."
Cons: "I hated how there was NO entertainment. Honestly on a 12 + hour flight this was a bit ridiculous. No tv, or movies... no screen on the seat at all. Not even a big one for everyone to enjoy! It was horrible... The seats were so cramped and the staff seemed a bit unprofessional and sloppy looking. The food was pretty bad as well. I've had my fair share amount of flights and honestly this was probably the worse one i've gone on with the amount of hours it took to get to our destination. I wouldn't have mind too much if there was no entertainment on a 2 or 3 hour flight..."

Pros: "I liked how they provided beverages"
Cons: "the seats were too close together, the staff seemed a bit unprofessional, and the big one for me was having to buy ear phones to be able to watch a movie... seriously?"

Pros: "lay-flat bed for red-eye flight to Toronto"

Cons: "My seat assignment was changed without my knowledge. There was a charge for my one suitcase. Most other airlines do not charge for a suitcase unless it is more then one."

Pros: "Needs wifi"

Pros: "This time around around the crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "There used to be meals on longer flights. Now, not even a bag of peanuts."

Cons: "This flight was delayed by 45 minutes which made me miss my connecting flight. I asked the flight attendants if they could help me get to the front of the plane to see if I could catch my connecting flight and they wouldn't help me. Due to this I had to wait over 4 and a half hours at the airport wheee another 350 people were waiting for accommodations. I was in the airport until 4:30 in the morning because there weren't enough air cansas representatives. In addition, they were working really slowly because they kept getting up to chat with eachother."

Cons: "I have taken 6 flights with your company in the last two weeks. Each has had a minimum of 45 min delay. Your seats are very small. Your planes seem dated and have no entertainment system on board, oh unless I want to pay another $10 bucks for an Ipad.. Food , what food. You did not have half of the items on your own menu.. and when I bought some cheese and crackers, I had to remind the lady that cashews were in the picture too. You have a mediocre airline, nothing to brag about here."

Pros: "Flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Only able to board because someone missed flight. Delayed flight by over 30 minutes."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"

Pros: "Buying wine was a good idea. It's a good cure for frustrations."
Cons: "I had trouble checking in online AND printing boarding pass at kiosk. Plane left 45 minutes late. Boarding was chaotic. Headphones did not work with entertainment system. Drink order was incorrect... I just had to pretend I was on crappy public transport for two hours for a one hour journey. I laughed out loud when they announced on flight that Air Canada was voted best North American airline. Riiiiight."

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"

Cons: "1. Too cold 2. Patron behind me was tall and his knees repeatedly pushed into my back through a paper thin seat back 3. Waited 45 minutes on tarmac AFTER landing to deplane"

Pros: "Late departure due to an incompetent airport crew (the guys who fuel the plane) . The pilot keep us well informed about the delay. Since we left Vancouver late, we arrived late and had to sit on the runway for 30 minutes until we could get a gate at LAX. Again the pilot keep us informed and apologized for the inconvenience, The staff was very friendly."

Pros: "on-board service"
Cons: "Late departures (about 30 minutes each way) with corresponding late arrivals. On the flight LAX to Vancouver due to late arrival of the plane, on the return flight supposedly because of a delay in loading luggage (the flight was fully boarded for 30+minutes before loading was completed). The late arrival in Los Angeles led to further delay as there was no available gate to accept us so we disembarked 50+minutes after the scheduled time."

Pros: "It was amazing and super easy. I cant wait to go back."
Cons: "I wish they had a meal and free checked luggage. Not the worst, but not the best part"

Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."

Pros: "Flignt from Honolulu to Vancouver delayed. Return flight also delayed."

Pros: "Smooth"
Cons: "Pay for food"

Cons: "Flight cancelled until the next day and then delayed again without sufficient notice . Air canada hasn't offered us anything worth making up missing a day out of our vacation"

Cons: "Took us 13 hours total to get from Vancouver to Toronto"

Pros: "Love the individual entertainment & the friendly staff team"

Pros: "An incident the day of our flight left us with a pet with nowhere to go but come with us. Usually you need to give a fair bit of notice to bring a pet into the cabin but the staff couldn't have been more helpful in getting all of us to our destination. They turned an incredibly stressful day into an easy and relaxing one."

Pros: "Are they ever friendly? Concerned about their customers? It's unreal how indifferent they are to your time and comfort!"

Pros: "They arrived on time. Not much else."
Cons: "Over 4 hour flight. No food (not even pretzels). A few old movies. Flight delay with no communication. I only noticed when I was checking in at the kiosk and noticed that my one hour layover was now a 5 minute layover. Rebooked. When I arrived at destination, no notice that next flight was delayed, even though it was over 3 hours late. Thought I only had 1 hour to go through US immigrations and customs. Ran to the other end of the airport to be on time. Aircraft wasn't even at airport and flight was over 3 hours late. They couldn't have posted that so we didn't have to run across the airport? Changed gates, but no announcement. One other flyer was looking at the board and called out to the group waiting that there was a gate change. Left Vancouver at 8:00 am, arrived in Boston at 1:30 am. Won't fly with Air Canada again."

Cons: "Horrible to fly Air Canada"

Pros: "Enough empty seats that I could lay out to sleep. The price was very reasonable."
Cons: "Hard to believe in 2017 an airline can offer a 9-10 hour flight without any in-flight entertainment system."

Pros: "A wider seat due to equipment change."
Cons: "No blankets offered on a red eye flight."

Cons: "We ran to the gate to make our connection and reached the gate on time while the flight was still boarding. They offloaded our luggage assuming we will be late!!!!"

Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I avoid rouge at all costs and recommend others to avoid it too. I hate the lack of screens and zero complimentary food. A pretzel would impress me but I relate air canada rouge to delta or united and always have weak experiences compared to other aircrafts."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "No flight attendant came during the entire course of the flight, even after I had pressed the button for one. One flight attendant was extremely hostile. Horrible experiencing flying to Vancouver from Vegas."

Cons: "a long 5 hr flight, they just give you a drink!!!!(they cant afford even a little bite?) Even at the time of the drink they bypass my line and we had to ask and she said sorry!! We did,nt get the usual boarding notification by e-mail 24hrs before??"

Pros: "Friendly staff n helpful. Good seats, movies available"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything even the headphones. The seat, the luggages n not even a small peanuts snack they give you. Flight are very expensive for you to pay all extra."

Cons: "We got held up in Calgary due to the fact they lost everyone's checked bags then we finally got to LA they still had lost them. They told us they would have the bags to us in a matter of hours but it took 3 days."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Poor snack options"

Pros: "Got seats beside washroom so they don't recline. Makes it a tiresome journey. Fast check in, great pilot"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by roughly 2 hours allegedly due to construction at the Toronto Pearson airport. I recognize that this was possibly not Air Canada's fault but the delay was still unforeseen."

Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was sat next to a dementia patient who were urinating on himself and the seat all over. I endured the smell for 10 hrs. The crew gave me a mask for it. No accommodations. I did not eat or drink obviously. He had been given special accommodation or sat with a caretaker"

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."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"

Pros: "Generally the flight was just fine."
Cons: "Nothing stood out as being a problem."

Pros: "Loved the plane."
Cons: "I tried to get business class it was full. In general, I don't spend for business class because AC BC is so poor (horrible food, iffy seats, broken entertainment systems). But this plane was different, unfortunately I couldn't get on."

Pros: "Attentive crew - offering beverages repeatedly (which didn't happen at all on my flight Toronto to Vancouver two weeks earlier)"
Cons: "Crammed seating - felt much tighter than would I am used to from other international airlines."

Pros: "Getting me from point A to point B in one piece is most important, so top marks there."
Cons: "- was told to switch gates twice for the same flight (while lugging my stuff along with me) - both flights were late - flight tracker didn't work from LAX to Vancouver - just a note: on flight from Vancouver to LAX, passenger behind us was talking 5X louder then literally anyone else on the plane. I bought headphones just to drown out his life story."

Cons: "Flight was late so I missed my connection. Then my luggage was delayed by five hours behind me. Generally poor service."

Cons: "Had to pay for seat assignments when reservation made or no seat reservations. Not true on all airlines. Delta let us pick seats for free when the reservation was made. Husband had wanted a window seat and ended up with a middle seat. No free snacks just drinks"

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"
