Very good service.

If the new movies/TV could be recycled more often, that would be appreciated! Thanks

Flight was 1 hour behind schedule.

Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "The flight attendants were cool"
Cons: "Lady who accepted boarding passes was rude, seats were snug"
Cons: "This sucks due to delay"
Cons: "Landing can be better."
Pros: "Everything good !"
Cons: "Cheaper"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Gate waiting area was far less commotion than the Southwest gates."
Pros: "Great crew, nice plane"
Cons: "More varieties of snacks"
Pros: "I liked that when due to a medical reason, I was able to be given the option of rebooking my flight even though there would be a penalty and extra charges and I would need to pay the difference."
Cons: "When I called to rebook my flight within the year and about 3 months in advance of the desired date, unfortunately Latam made multiple errors and also told me that rebooking flights only are eligible for more expensive flights. Even though there were other less expensive flights that I was able to find and see online, they insisted the only flight available had a price difference of $4,000+ dollars. the original ticket was around $550 so this was absurd. Not helpful at all, how frustrating."
Pros: "Crew kept a positive attitude, Moved passengers around if they wished so no one had to feel cramped."
Cons: "Half plane boarded. Mechanical problems. Every had to disembark. Hour delay before re-boarding. Then sat an extra hour waiting for crew to move plane for departure. Other airlines have offered discounts on future flights because of such delays. Alaska offered nothing. Overall, a 3 hour delay with lots of apologies."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed and delayed multiple times. I wa son the back and ice chips kept falling on me from above my head. Horrible."
Pros: "Even though there was no TV screen in the headrest, we were all provided with IPads to view. The controls on the IPad were quicker than the in headset TV's. The seats were comfortable and we all received a flight packet that included a toothbrush, eye shades, ear plugs and a pair of socks for our comfort! Blankets and pillows were in our seats when we arrived."
Cons: "I missed being able to see our flight path. On a long flight it's difficult to keep track of where we are and now much longer we will be in the air without the flight tracker. My baggage was misplaced, so I was delayed by needing to fill out forms for lost luggage. Thankfully, it was located before I reached my connecting flight."
Pros: "My flight was great. The flight attendants were very good. I How they enforced the rules. They did it in a professional way that was direct but not bossy. The pilots were great. The landing was so good. My son called it “buttering the bread”."
Cons: "My only complaint was that my complimentary alcoholic beverage was a very small pour. I had a glass of Chardonnay and for the price I paid to upgrade my seat to premium, it should have been a larger pour or at least a refill!"
Pros: "I appreciated the assistance getting to my connecting flight in time. Great service!"
Pros: "I splurged and purchased the first class upgrade as i am tall and it was a very long flight. Loved the legroom and service i received."
Cons: "Went through the boarding process and then we all waited in the line outside the plane for some time. They obviously were not ready to board the plane which was difficult for some of the elderly now standing in line. I had a planned dinner in sacramento which was a main reason i took this long layover and due to leaving 2 hours late i missed the dinner which had to be canceled. This was very important to me. The 75$ discount given to me on a future flight is not going to replace the time off work and the dinner which will now have to wait for anither trip to the mainland."
Pros: "The plane had far more leg room than typical airlines which was a pleasant surprise. It was newer than most, the flight attendants were polite and accommodating and the ride was smooth!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Would love phone charging capabilities at our seat."

Pros: "Flew Alaska air - Plenty of leg room and much more than any qantas domestic flight!"
Pros: "Staff is always helpful"
Cons: "seats too tight"
Pros: "I ended up with a free premium seat, which mean free wine and snacks. Free in flight chat on Facebook messenger was great, and I appreciated the extra legroom. It would be been worth the extra 30 bucks if I had paid for it."
Cons: "The change of gate for the boarding."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, courteous service. Different from other airlines, the flight crew did not seem exhausted and overworked."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Can’t really think of anything"
Pros: "It was smooth flying and made my wife at ease specially it was her very first time flying ever. Will fly Alaska airlines again."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Pros: "Seats weren't extremely comfortable but it was a short flight and it landed on time/early. Happy overall"
Cons: "It was pretty simple so there wasn't anything to not like. You get a drink and a package of cookies, so bring a snack if you're going to be hungry."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "Plane was on time flight was really good up and down from Sacramento to Portland on the way up. The pilot set down just a little rough but we made it light. Plane was on time flight was really good up and down from Sacramento to Portland."
Cons: "On the way from Sacramento to Portland the pilot landed a little rough but it's a prop job what do you want."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 1/2 hours. Seats were hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Love Alaska, generally. Service is great, love that you get perks with their credit card."
Cons: "Our direct flight was canceled the night before (less than 12 hours prior to the flight. Did get rescheduled on an acceptable 1 stop flight plan, but I'm always upset there is never any sort of concession or discount or any sort of compensation for these types of inconveniences. Bad business -- this isn't a knock on Alaska, really, as it's true of all airlines, as far as I know. But it still sucks."
Pros: "Small plane and short flight. Not too much to expect other than get there on time which they did"
Cons: "No complains"
Cons: "$25 per checked bag then you offer people a chance to check them for free? now that I have been hoodwinked out of money, I'll know how to play the game"
Pros: "Great flight all around"
Pros: "We were in time, staff very friendly, very clean plane"
Cons: "Snack two slim cookie wafers. Would prefer choice of salty or sweet snack that is slightly larger than those offered."
Cons: "The return flight was late, the walk way to board the plan was wet, many people were asked to check their bags because the returning plane was smaller."
Pros: "Flight attendants were quick and efficient during a medical emergency."
Cons: "We had two hard landings (in Seattle and again in Ontario - same crew) and hit turbulence coming in toward Ontario that literally forced a flight attendant to her knees in the aisle."
Pros: "Loved the legroom! On a more serious note, there was a medical crises in First Class, and a badly behaved young woman under the influence. Both situations were handled quietly and professionally."
Pros: "This was one of the best flights I have taken! It was smooth start to finish, the plane was clean, and the staff was excellent! Thank you Alaska Airlines!"
Pros: "Alaska Airline personal are professional and helpful."
Cons: "TSA is a disgusting experience, though I understand it's importance in this unsafe time in history. But, the TSA personell often seem to be bickering among themselves while they are suppose to be working."
Pros: "After custom, I put my check-in luggages to connecting flight conveyer, I was told to go to gate without boarding pass. I was concerned about availability of seat. I was waiting more than 1 hour at gate but no crew showed up. It was about 1 hour before scheduled flight to Sacramento. So I asked nearby crew again, I was told then to go to Alaska Airline customer service. The crew was very helpful to give me a boarding pass there."
Pros: "Her flight in to Seattle from Sacramento went very smoothly."
Cons: "She missed her flight after several Alaska Airlines employees directed her to wrong lines to check her bags, she does not have a credit card so she just wanted to pay cash but no one seemed to know how to help her for over an hour. Just really put a damper on a Birthday trip to visit me."
Pros: "It was a great flight. The attendants were great. The captive was informative."
Cons: "They needed a little more space in the seats and the Isle could be a bit wider also. When the carts were going threw it did limit the restrooms. But overall it was a great experience."
Pros: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets available. Not enough communication about turbulence."
Pros: "Everything was quick and easy, both flights were on time (I had a layover), staff was very friendly, and had great complimentary services."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "On the ground ..TSA said I needed a new boarding pass..3 kiosck wouldn't. Work. Friendly re sent me to Alaska desk where they printed me a new boarding pass but when I went to TSA. I had no passport. Sooooo..back to t he Alaska desk and a wonderful rep named Diane helped me hunt through all my "stuff"...then began talking to all reps helping process passengers. She never gave up. And found my passport at the desk that had made me a new boarding pass. I was so upset I couldn't think straight but she did!, many thanks to this kind lady."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

It did not allow me to check in and left seats in advance or get a boarding pass. When specifically asked agent at gate for the row that had extra leg room, as my so. Is 6’4” she gives us a row where the seats do not even incline nor is there any extra room. Also the temp in Avon was high, making many passengers sweat Improve customer service !

👍

Pros: "Middle seat was empty"
Pros: "Safe, uneventful flight. Everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The turbulence. Poor california git lits of smoke."
Cons: "The flight was very hot. Passengers near me were sweating and we Hall had thick layers on because it was cold out. I understand trying to make it warm it there’s no need to turn up the heat that high."

Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Cons: "Never took it!"
Cons: "There was a LOT of turbulence and the landing was a rough one too. Plane was cramped with very little leg room and my seat back was broken."
Cons: "For a 3 hour flight no onboard entertainment. Such a let down"
Pros: "Anna from South Africa was funny, and super accomidatinf"
Cons: "it stink inside the plane, the seats in front of us were dirty and smelled bad!"
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "Flight arrived early!!"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Pros: "Get a day in NYC"
Cons: "Two daytime flights booked so can't get to Bangor until the 9:00 pm flight tonight. Aitline only coveted one night at the hotel. Had to buy a second night so we don't have to carry our bags around all day."
Pros: "I was able to do my check in and seat picking fast with no problem"
Cons: "A lot of the airport employees and staff negative and Grouchi mean attitude but does not take away nothing with the airline company staff very helpful and positive people"
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Pros: "The Economy seats with added space Plenty of space Cheerful crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Pros: "Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "I didn't have an assigned seat though I booked months in advance."
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."
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!"
Pros: "Flight was late, crew didn't do anything to expedite boarding and it took the longest I have ever seen to board a plane."
Cons: "Boarding process was slow and chaotic"
Cons: "Like all airlines it would be nice if there was an extra inch between the seats. Also, unfortunately the video wasn't working."
Pros: "The crew members were extremely kind and caring"
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Boarding time. Flights on time"
Cons: "Amazing"
Pros: "The Crew was great"
Cons: "Let my golf clubs fly at no charge. Seat update at check in at no charge."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Good leg room clean airplane"
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "very poor customer service boarding and in flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight didn’t get cancelled. We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because it came from Toronto and it needed to be cleaned."
Pros: "On time, free coffee, free pretzels"
Cons: "Going home."
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: "Super Cold airplane and it’s not the only west Ket that was freezing. the crew kept skipping my row for drinks for some reason. the landing was rough."
Pros: "Wonderful friendly and helpful ground staff and crew."
Cons: "1 hour delay in boarding due to mismanagement of scheduled maintenance. If more time was needed, please do not schedule/post early flight time. I could have used that time to roam Vancouver."
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: "The manager who finally helped me was friendly and listened the entire time even when I was angry. She was concerned and helped me the best she could. The stewards are always friendly"
Cons: "There was only one agent on to check tickets. I was in line for 45 minutes and when I got to her, she just said over and over, there is nothing I can do, your flight time was just cut off. I would have to wait until the flight the next day. Even though I had no bags and there was still 35 minutes before take off. I also told her I knew I would be late and so spoke to someone from Westjet he night before. She smiled like I was lying to her. Lines should not be so black and white. If she would have just processed my ticket I would have had 35 minutes to get to my gate instead of 10. When you are flying with half full planes there should really be better ways to manage customer service."
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: "Everything was fine with the flight except for the substantial delay of an hour in taking off."
Cons: "It was late taking off without too much explanation except they were waiting for a delivery of fuel it seems. We just sat in the plane for all that time. I wish they could have informed us earlier so we could have just waited at the airport."
Cons: "They used the rough air condition story to hip us out of full service, The conditions were fine . I bought the plus and did that because of a food option. They ripped me off Thanks Bryan ELLIOTT Previous flyer Lost my trust"
Pros: "I was given a nice seat with plenty of leg room by the emergency exit ."
Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."
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: "Hannah was a lovely accommodating woman thourghly enjoyed her service, i slept the whole way to Prince George. Crew was welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "Didnt know i bought west jet plus seats. Enjoyed my service though. May think of buying plus again some time soon on one of my up comming trips"
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: "Crew was courteous and the plane was not packed like the previous one, so it was good there was room to stretch out the legs."
Cons: "Having to board the plane walking outside.It was raining and there were puddles everywhere. Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
Pros: "Flight was delayed hours. Met the most amazing man on the flight ahead of me to Calgary. He waited at the airport for my flight to land. Sometimes delays are just meant to be. Lots of commuting travel in our future..."
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."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "I had to pay for earphones. Even if I didn't want the earphones I couldn't shut off the tv screen which really bothered me. Will you, in he future,charge us for using the washroom facilities?"
Pros: "On time departures and arrival."
Cons: "Internet didn’t really work."
Pros: "Staff were so friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, ample room, ability to charge devices. On time"
Cons: "Appalled that I was approached by two flight attendants separately to turn off my light in order to accommodate another passenger as the light was bothering them on a night flight. I pay premium pricing for the Plus seat so I have extra room to work. I chose not to turn off light in order to work, then flight attendants allowed the passenger to approach me. Really unacceptable to put me in uncomfortable interaction, making me play bad cop. I was sitting behind passengers talking loudly who were using profanity. My solution? Earphones. This is a commercial flight - offer passengers eye covers, some solution, or tell them to deal with it, or tell them to charter a private plane. Don’t tell us to sacrifice what we pay for, because you can’t do your job. Lost a loyal customer."
Pros: "We liked how friendly the staff was. Liked the priority boarding, food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats. My bum hurt at the end of our flight. Also we paid for our wifi and it was incredibly slow at loading any website. Very frustrating."
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."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "Start the flight a bit earlier than scheduled, so we arrive a bit earlier too. The flight is smooth."
Pros: "online checkin, fast boarding (a total of only 27 passengers undoubtedly made boarding much quicker), had extra space due to the sparse flight; smooth flight, good refreshments, pilot did a good job of keeping us updated on runway/gate status"
Cons: "on board crew didn't seem interested; empty cup was never picked up; upon leaving the aircraft (after a 30 minute delay due to a problem at our gate) none of the crew said as much as goodbye or thanks. I know it was a late flight with very few passengers, many of whom may have slept, but as such I thought the crew should have been more attentive and friendly at departure. A disappointing experience."
Cons: "West Jet personnel did not give any information about the customs process for connecting flights that I would face in Vancouver or the requirement to go through another security check between West Jet flights. I was told that I should simply go to the next gate to board the plane for Los Angeles -- and that I would do customs in the USA - so the info person sent me to retrieve my luggage (wrong info) and I ended with a 45 minutes anxious trek through the Vancouver airport! Once I found my gate, the West Jet personnel could not have been more kind."
Pros: "Late departure, later arrival. Seats did not recline. Staff insisted we would not be late, no need to contact awaiting family, no updates (even as we missed boarding time by 20+ minutes and plane still required de-icing)... end result 1 hour 40 minutes late"
Pros: "Nothing. Literally nothing."
Cons: "EVERYTHING!! Packed like sardines with ZERO distancing for a four hour flight. Flight attendants were horrible and did nothing to mandate mask wearing. Literally watched a guy sleep nearly the entire flight with his mask off and the FA walked by him multiple times without saying anything. Will never fly with American after their abysmal attempt to keep us safe. I did not feel safe for a second on that horrendous flight. Definitely getting a COVID test and I will know where I got it from if I test positive. Also the seats are uncomfortable and it was a very bumpy flight (I understand that part cannot be avoided). I don’t understand how you cancel flights and bump people to other flights only for them to be SUPER packed. I thought at the rate of cases rising airlines should be doing a better job at taking safety precautions. Not American. Why do they think it’s a safe idea at this time to have my wife and I packed in with a total stranger for four hours? No social distancing whatsoever! Overall I cannot say a single good thing about this flight. Worst in my entire life"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed because there was a mechanical issue on the plane. We sat and waited on the plane for 1 hour while the Maintenance crew tried fixing the problem. After sitting there for one hour, they told us the problem wasn’t fixed and we have to change aircrafts. The other aircraft was all the way in terminal D (we were in terminal A) and the boarding process took a long time. Overall it was an awful flight and experience with American Airlines. I missed my mother’s birthday party because of the 2 hour delay."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"
Pros: "Horrible !!!"
Cons: "Be on time !!!!"
Pros: "I didn’t interact with the crew but they seems nice."
Cons: "The trip from HonoluIu to Los Angeles was too warm."
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: "Be on time. Plus we were in first class and it would be nice if the center counsel was smaller giving the passenger more seat room."
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: "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."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The carrier was supposed to be Alaska it turned out to be American Airlines and with that comes the confusion checking in with the wrong confirmation number. On a separate note, this was a bundled itinerary and the Thrifty Car shuttle was so infrequent and slow to the terminal I nearly missed my flight... I am not sure if I would bundle my travel plans again..,,also Thrifty car rental was short on cars in Liz Angeles on arrival"
Pros: "It was on time, no delays"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "Made it to destination"
Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"
Cons: "Late on hour"
Cons: "I had a delay of 4 hours. Got home very late. Not what I had planned on."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff by 1 hour waiting for a crew to fly in. Upon crew arrival, new crew member states that there are standby crew available and he's not sure why they didn't call on them. Then we continued to wait for 3 more passengers who were delayed and now had a chance to board our flight. Once landed, gate was occupied by yet another flight running late so we waited for 15 minutes to get to the gate."
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."
Cons: "Hour delay"
Pros: "Everything happy and in time. Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Because of airline delay and increased immigration wait time, we missed our flight. No compensation but we were connected to another flight to Sac. 1-1/2 hours later, which worked out okay, except we got home very late at night."
Pros: "It was o k."
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "It was generally ok"
Cons: "The tourbulance was crazy The fact I received my bag in Sacramento and it was damaged upset me a lot"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Pros: "The flight out was really comfortable but the flight back was a little cramped. The crew was great."
Cons: "The return flight"
Cons: "Very cold airplane"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "The long delay was terrible"
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
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: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"
Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Pros: "THAT i WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GET TO MY DESTINATION."
Cons: "WITH A CODE-SHARE, THE TICKET SHOULD SPECIFY WHICH CARRIER I WILL ACTUALLY FLY WITH. THIS WAS NOT DONE AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT BECAUSE ALASKA AND AMERICAN ARE IN 2 DIFFERENT - VERY DIFFERENT TERMINALS. THEN THE LOBBY AGENT COULD NOT LOCATE ALASKA FLIGHT ON THE AMERICAN TERMINAL - ANOTHER DELAY. POOR EXPERIENCE OVERALL."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."
Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline"
Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"
Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."
Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"
Pros: "everything"
Pros: "I like the updated airplane were we all had our own Tv's to watch whatever we wanted"
Cons: "Had to switch planes twice late boarding food sucks it what to freaking hot in the plan seat where Uncomfy no freaking movie on our way back I'm not sure if I'll fly again with AA to many complains from people"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag in to baggage claim instead of at the gate. The airport staff were extremely rude and disrespectful."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "I could not change the flight with less payment so I missed the flight and booked another one."
Cons: "That there is no internet"
Pros: "Empty middle seat so more room."
Cons: "Need more room. Not enough space. Tv was glitchy and didnt work properly . seat uncomfortable"
Pros: "Air Canada is always a great travel experience."
Cons: "The food is terrible. It's the worst I've had from any airline."
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"
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: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Terrible food, plane was overbooked, they only offer 'in-ear' headphones, they have squeezed maximum seats into this plane to increase their profit. Would absolutely NEVER fly Air Canada long haul economy or premium economy again."
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: "Will use again"
Cons: "Airline food has always been poor no matter which airline you travel. Be more liberal with the drinks trolley."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
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."
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: "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: "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."
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."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the least pleasant flying experience I've ever had."
Cons: "1. They scheduled me for an overnight layover FOR NO REASON when there were multiple flights leaving earlier to my ultimate destination. 2. The airplane food gave me food poisoning and I had to spend the night in the ER. 3. My flight the next morning was delayed by 3hrs. Meanwhile, other flights to the same destination were taking off with no problem."
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."
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: "Food ok crew and staff very helpful"
Pros: "waiting on the plane for hours after we arrived to LA wasn't to great. Also it was frustrating to watch the plane get delayed over and over again, the food wasn't too good, the seats felt like cardboard and it was too packed in the plane...but other then that, it was spectacular"
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."
Cons: "They need a better system for boarding. It took forever to get us all on board. And it was hard to hear which zone they were boarding since the passengers were so noisy. there should've been lanes for the different zones so they could usher us all in orderly. It was a chaotic mess without lanes. There was no entertainment if you didn't download their app onto your electronic device. No snacks were offered either. I didn't pay for a meal but it would've been nice to have some pretzels or something like that. The controls for the lights, and attendant call button were on the hand rest. It was very uncomfortable since it was a raised section, and more than once I turned on the light without meaning to do so. I won't fly Air Canada Rouge ever again, if I can help it."
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: "Good seats"
Cons: "Luggage was lost from Vancouver to Seattle with absolutely no communications and I had to chase it's whereabouts the next day"
Pros: "The plane, which was American-made. Smooth ride in the air, no baggage issues."
Cons: "The crying children in front of me, the hour and a half delay, and the late dinner service. Dinner came at 8:30, after staring at those with special meals eat and finish an hour before everyone else, they should wait with the rest of us. Breakfast was pretty lackluster. Their online app and check in is awful- they should hire new coders and UX designers to increase functionality."
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"
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: "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!!!"
Pros: "On board facilities and service"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "That i showed up in maple time and the plane was oversold, then they put me on another flight which made my pick up at another airport costly!"
