Flight was cancelled. Better would have been communicating an alternative flight on the same day.
There were endless delays on all 3 flights, and there was little to no communication concerning the delay as it was happening, on our last flight (YYZ to SJU). One flight attendant was rude; needs retraining.
Westjet staff today came to my aid like everyone would hope for in a time of need. I was unwell on the flight and had to have assistance from the plane into the terminal. Caring and efficient is the best way to describe The staff who helped. Thank you
seamless experience, thank you.

Cons: "Could not recline seat in row 30"
Cons: "Poor service before boarding."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Delays are common yes, but the “system” to re-route or re book was a horrid FAIL. I’ve never encountered such inefficient system for something so common as a flight delay. Made a call to Expedia to make changes to hotel reservations and never got the call back for confirmation of requested changes."
Pros: "Short flight, great staff. No food or entertainment, so no rating"
Pros: "Pretzels, Biscott cookies still passed out along w free beverages. Free Entertainment on westjet wifi good too!!"
Pros: "Boarding etc was all fine."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "Excellent crew and customer service"
Cons: "The flight was 40 minutes late and boarding took 40 minutes."
Cons: "No sink in the bathroom...gross. Also, very very small seats."
Pros: "Friendly service. On time"

Pros: "We upgraded to Plus when we checked in and it was totally worth it. Extra space, food, drink. It was great!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Chicken salad was great."
Cons: "We are computer savvy but wasted an hour following instructions to see a movie. It just circulated around frustrating us. Didn’t see anyone watching either. 5 hour full flight and no entertainment. Stewards didn’t know how to help."
Pros: "Fun, friendly crew on a boring routine short haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down."
Cons: "So there was a problem with the aircraft. Some cargo nett8ng was broken so they had to move the baggage from the rear to the front hold. The pilot can on to inform us of what was happening, assuring us that our baggage would arrive with the flight. B7t not surprisingly they lied and about 30 ppl didn't get their luggage. It never made it on the flight and won't be until the following morning. So I have no clothes. No jacket for sub zero temperatures. It would great if they could at least tell us that there will be a problem. Not lie I'm not impressed. I'll do my best not to fly westjet again."
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Loading was an absolute disaster, never seen it so slow before"

Cons: "Changes, changes, changes and delayed one day"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient."
Cons: "No Entertainment system which was a huge deal for my partner, but I read my very good book and talked to my very nice seat partner."
Pros: "I like that it wasn't a huge plane"
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."
Cons: "Flight was late and kept getting later as the day wore on. Nobody seemed to know how late we were ultimately going to be and why. Missed my meeting."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have had. On time, Great service and excellent entertainment system. Plus seat had lots of room as well"
Pros: "It was a good flight. Comfortable and on time."

Cons: "Some of the announcements were a bit fuzzy."
Pros: "Airport Terminal waiting area was nice."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Bad landings"
On the bombardier Q400, and the seats have much more legroom than WestJet. Definitely get the aisle seats on these small planes.
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We were on the runway for one hour and Calgary was not notified so we could not make our connecting flight even though room on the plane. On the flight an hour later we were on the plane for three hours but the weather prevented takeoff. Now we are sleeping in the airport until 6 am. So I think communication needs to be improved"
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Pros: "gate crew had our small luggages checked-in even if there were tons of space available, flight crew chatted noisily hald the duraltion of the flight, video entertainment either kept crashing or playing the wrong episode, toilet had no water"
Cons: "overall service"
Cons: "Air Canada has completely gone down the tubes and super quickly."
Pros: "Nothing positive"
Cons: "I was stranded in TO for 12 hours without a hotel room because of Air Canada inefficiency and horrible customer service! I’m never flying AC again if there’s any other airlines flying to my destination"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Honolulu. This made Customs and Screening stressful...as there was only 45 minutes to get through and then to the gate. No one advised that there was another plane shortly, which would have reduced the feeling that we had to sprint down to the gate. Otherwise a very good flight"
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so I sat in my own row,?which offered spare leg room (I’m 6’2”). Time to fix the leg room issue on Rouge flights — it’s 2018."
Cons: "Crew seemed uninterested in general. On phones in back while people struggling to find luggage space. Coffee cups and plastic utensils, etc, stored in overhead bins so people at the back had to search for carry-on space elsewhere, again, without assistance from on board crew. Offered service only once and many were sleeping so didn’t get anything. The overall check-in process could be easier, as the app doesn’t always work as it should."
Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."
Cons: "First time flying with Air Canada, mixups from the start of the journey until I finally got on my connecting flight"
Pros: "My wife had injured her knee before our trip and was having difficulty walking. Air Canada provided wheelchair assistance every part of our airport transfers between Atlanta and Japan. Thanks so much !"
Cons: "Too short period between 2 flights, barely have time to pass the border, almost miss the next flight. No inventory of food."
Pros: "Getting off the plane!"
Cons: "They delayed the flight by almost 2 hours. Tried to make me check a carry on bag when the plane wasn't even at 50% capacity and one of the representatives was rude about it. Despite having a delayed flight and not many people on the plane, they still lost one of my bags. They also lied to me about taking care of my other friends who were coming from the same connecting flight as me but was hung up in customs. My friends were traveling with small children but were denied entry to the gate because they were a little behind. I could keep going but never again on Air Canada!!!! Never!!!"
Pros: "I liked the care, the kindness, and the help"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "if the connecting flight from Vancouver to Toronto was not 5+ hrs, and then told one of my luggege was lost, from Vancouver, to go though Security/Immigration and had to wait was not good. It was found and I was able to get to the gate but only 20 min. left... because the flight was late arriving from Montreal. Phew! Two customers had been waiting for a baggage for 24 hrs, there, totally frustrated. Compared to their ssituation, mine was not so serious? Two men at counter were not sympathetic, no emotions showing. Until I paid attention to their problem, a woman showed up, tried to amend the situation. AirCanada's corporate image was damaged by those two men."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane were excellent."
Cons: "The wireless entertainment system is slow and glitchy and did not work on an older iPad. The food was subpar but by airline standards was middle of the road."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, no in flight entertainment"
Cons: "They had nothing together. My first flight was delayed so I got in late and my connecting flight was rescheduled for 5 hours later. Their "free meal voucher" for rescheduling amounts to one slice of pizza and no drink. The airport then lost my checked bag and kept me waiting in one room for 4 of those hours to where I was still rushing to catch my next flight. Air Canada then forgot to assign a plane to my new second flight so I waited another 2 hours to board. Once boarded, the airline made us wait another hour while they loaded bags, then unloaded some of the wrong bags thy put on. They then tacked 25 minutes in the wrong direction and we went all the way back. I have never seen so many people rushing the customer service desks because they missed their connecting flights, throughout the entire time I was stuck in Toronto. Additionally, their "in flight movie system" doesn't work unless you rent one of their iPads. It prompts you to download Java Flash player even if you already have it instead of asking to run it. Then once you allow it, you get a 1-2 second animation then the movie breaks. There are similar errors with their music and tv show features, I tried all of these in my laptop and phone."
Cons: "1, no food 2, pay for the luggage 3, very small leg room 4, too low temperature in the cabin and no blanket"
Pros: "The crews were nice and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "There were so much miscommunication. Coming from Hong Kong it was late for 3 hrs , then I need to pick up my luggages and went thru immigration. Missed the flight to Toronto, checked at the counter and was told did not need to pick up my luggage until I got to Atlanta. Well at Toronto, my luggages didn't go through. I had to pick them up and went thru immigration on the USA side again. Missed my flight again! It was so frustrating except all the employees were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Crew were excellent, flight itself was comfortable once finally underway"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, never given an explanation. My bag did not arrive with my flight from Victoria to Toronto. I was never told why this happened, and I was refused entry through customs and forced to miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "no food no entertainment very bad management of boarding"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "Screaming kids right behind me for 3 1/2 of the 4 hour flight"
Cons: "Boarding Zones 3-5 is always a mess"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Touch screens were broken"
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Cons: "1시간이상 딜레이, 비행기를 타고서도 1시간쯤 있었던 것 같다. 그리고... 난 뒤에서 두번째 좌석에 앉았는데, 맨 뒷좌석에서 두 직원이 밥을 먹으며 얼마나 떠들어 대던지... 그리고 돌아다니면서도 주머니에 손을 넣은 채 거의 빼지 않고 말만 많은 젊은남자직원... 정말 건방져보였다. 착륙할 때 얼마나 급정거를 하던지 맨 뒤에 있었던 큰 물병이 떨어져서 맨 앞까지 굴러가더라. 다른 승객도 나와 눈이 마주친 후 무사히 착륙한 것을 축하한다고 쓴웃음을 지으며 농담을 했다. This is the Air Canada."
Cons: "There were too many things to mention, but I must say the customer service is not a strong point neither is a customer first mindset. The airlines apparent made several changes between my trip and I was threaten with additional bag fees when my ticket was very clear for two carry-ons and to checked bags, which also confirmed when I confirmed my seat request. After I was required to check my bags, I realized my earbuds were in the bag and the flight attendant did not give me a pair and actually told me I could purchase a pair...REALLY!I just did a 15 hour flight from Dubai, you were delayed by 2 hours on my last connecting flight and you can't comp a pair of .25 cent earbuds."
Pros: "The price was decent."
Cons: "I was travelling with a 13 yr old and expected to be seated together when I booked. I didn't know I needed to pluck my seats if I didn't want to pay extra. The woman at boarding moved our seats, however, closer at boarding, which I thought was pretty considerate."
Pros: "They have television screens"
Cons: "Boarding pathetic, crew not friendly, only paid alcoholic beverages, poor food, landing worst of all flights that I had."
Pros: "Crew was surly overall on flight. On ground they looked bored-one on first leg of flight seemed hung over"
Cons: "Changed my flight home do my layover went from 1 hr 30 min to 5 hours!"
Pros: "The space I had for my feet and legs"
Cons: "The lights that had to stay on during a red eye flight"
Pros: "The customer service desk at Lufthansa/Air Canada did help us set up additional flights for the next day."
Cons: "Since we missed our first flight to Toronto, we missed this flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "bad service and didnot tell customer some critical information"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."
Cons: "Three hour delay. Getting into Atlanta at 2:00am"
Pros: "Very fast flight"
Cons: "In flight Audio didn't work"
Pros: "Mu mil was ver y please with the trip"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 4 hours due to Air Canada needing a mechanic to check and sign off on the tire tread on one of the wheels, the ground staff enforced the carry-on bag size arbitrarily and inconsistently, and the entertainment system froze up and reset itself at least 3 times on the flight. Apart from the captain, the rest of the Air Canada staff exhibited the usual bureaucratic and defensive behavior I have unfortunately seen multiple times before. They're expensive (with a nasty computer algorithm that raises the price by over $100 each time you browse flights. The first time I checked, it was $300+; by the 3rd time it was over $600. When I used a VPN, the price magically went down to $300 plus, which was still a lot) and the experience is generally unpleasant. I have to brace myself for their lack of common sense behavior every time I deal with them. If I didn't have to fly with them, I wouldn't."
Pros: "I bought Business Class because the rate was very competitive. Seat was comfortable enough. Flight departed nearly an hour late, but arrived early at the destination, which helped."
Cons: "The flight attendants in first class honestly seemed overworked and had no time for anyone. A request for a mixed whiskey beverage brought a Diet Coke instead. The attendant didn't seem to care at all when the mistake was pointed out, nor did she fix it. Snacks and drinks were essentially flung at us with the care of throwing slop at farm animals. Which pretty much describes the quality of the meal."
Pros: "Amazing legroom!"
Cons: "Poor selections of snacks and drinks"
Pros: "This was the usual flight. Nothing exceptional. The flight crew were very nice."
Cons: "The worst flight i ever had.We payed so much money and the service in the flight was poor.No snacks, no breakfast,no moister towels to clean our selfs like other companys do.Got in Athens ok went to get our luggages no luggages to get.It took me about one hour to get everything straight.I had to leave for my island because the Taxi was waiting for me.I got my luggages after 3 days delivered in my home.I will not travel again with AIR CANADA."
Pros: "Leg room was sufficient"
Cons: "Touchscreen monitors were not the best."
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
Pros: "Great service (Business Class)"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours due to fueling issue in YYJ (not Air Canada's fault) Breakfast (business class) never varies and is getting somewhat boring"
Cons: "In flight movie wouldn't even go full screen!!! Had to squint"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, flight on time, service and staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding should be from the rear of the aircraft to reduce congestion in the aisles. Need more vegetarian food options."
