Cons: "the seats are horribly squished and uncomfortable. It’s the only thing that makes the flight not excellent"
Pros: "Thanks for the monitors."

Cons: "Departing on time"
Pros: "Delta crew is always great."

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Pros: "Everything about delta"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "Crew was grouchy and rushed past you without really trying to cater to your needs/ get you what you want."
Pros: "Airbus was nice"

Pros: "Good snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Great crew and plane arrived on time."
Cons: "No entertainment and no place to charge devices."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."
Cons: "But the seats are so tight that we were definitely elbow to elbow and once seated I was unable to access even the purse that was at my feet. There was no entertainment and the tray table was tiny, not even an indentation for a cup!"
Pros: "Extra leg room was great"
Cons: "Entertainment system was flickering"
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"
Cons: "Service in business class left a little more to be desired. I had to ask for food and drinks, because I feel off to sleep in the first round. Came to Gate early, but had to wait for agent to put the jet bridge. Only one person was available."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."
Cons: "Delta staff is not too friendly"
Pros: "Seating"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."
Pros: "Delta and Westjet staff are of great help to me."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "People"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Somehow we were double booked and double billed. We got to the airport 3 hours early and checked our bags. All 3 were lost and searched. Everything was put back precariously and there was shampoo and lotion everywhere."

Turbulence meant no beer/beverages on the way to DC. That's fine - but they could have refunded the money they saved from not serving it to passengers instead of just pocketing it.

Excellent behavior of pilot and crew Very good take off landing On time schedule Recommendation: Better to avoid charges on check in luggage

Very smooth take off and landing Excellent behavior of crew and pilots

Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "I could not get was the flight was delayed."
Cons: "12 hour delay to Toronto!!!"
Pros: "Bubbly flight personnel. Helpful front desk staff."
Cons: "Keep on going"
Cons: "The crew could have checked us in...we were 5 minutes late and had to book and pay for new tickets."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "So many delays which missed our connection. Very costly. It’s the next day and I’m still not to Montreal!"
Cons: "Was delayed by 1.5 hrs and only received 1 alert about the initial 30 mins delay."
Cons: "I paid $48 for a carry on bag at the airport, I was never informed about this fee at any point during my purchase of the flight. This is half of what I paid for the ticket originally, completely unacceptable. I will never buy again on Kayak's website if I get sneaky, last minute fees like this."
Pros: "Smooth flying. welcoming crew."
Pros: "The complimentary drinks make the flight better."
Cons: "The agent spents too much time attempting to rearrange the line up rather than help guests check-in, causing a backlog. When issues were brought to them, they seemed disinterested in solving the problem - water was spilled in line and when brought to the agents attention she seemed annoyed."
Pros: "Fly was good."
Cons: "My luggage was broken and I had to search for an agent and had them called overhead by the information to declare it. Inconvenient +++"
Cons: "No pude tomar mi vuelo, lo perdí por que nunca me llegó el código de confirmación de ETA de Canadá, ¿puedo reagendar mi vuelo para una próxima fecha?"
Cons: "Stay in the airplane for a long time after landing!"
Pros: "It is a great experience. No delays, Complementary offers . Easiest checking out from the plane and the airport I’ve ever seen in my life"
Cons: "Carry on luggage place in the plane was too small. But they took and I easily got it back from the carrousel free of charge"
Cons: "My flight on 8/18 was canceled last minute without any explanation. There was no customer support what so ever. I couldn't book any flight for the same day or the day after. They automatically booked me for 8/20, two days after my scheduled trip. It didn't work for my schedule. I had to canceled it and they offered credit for future trips instead of refund. can't get anyone to answer the phone and there is no way to get questions answered online."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays terrible longing rude flight attendants rude gate attendants"
Pros: "Good leg space, complimentary snacks soft drinks wine and beer."
Cons: "Service. Probably the only airline in North America to provide free alcohol on enconomy class."
Cons: "Free wine"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours and we only received an $8 food voucher. On my flight back to my original destination, the flight was overbooked and some has to volunteer to wait 9 hours for the next available"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, arrived in time to make a connecting flight, and sat on the runway for 30 minutes because all gates were full. Literally pushed the connecting flight out to depart so the plane I was on could disembark. Completely rude, booked me for the next day and left me in downtown Toronto at 10 pm with no place to stay. Cost 398 dollars at the cheapest nearby hotel, very nice hotel, but wtf? Customer service wouldn't even help to tell me how to get back out of the departure area."
Pros: "Porter Airlines did a great job overall."
Pros: "I flew many airlines in my life and Porter is one if the most human and attentive airline I experienced. Hopefully, will not grow to a greedy and bureaucratic corporations :)"
Pros: "nothing."
Pros: "Nice clean aircraft. Flight attendants were helpful and not rude. They tried to help."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with no explanation. No one called, the only reason I found out is because my phone has an app to monitor my flight. I was automatically rescheduled, also without anyone contacting me if this was okay and also without explanation. A few hours later that flight got cancelled as well. Again, no explanation. Again, no one contacted me. Again, the only reason I found out was because my phone told me. Again, I got rescheduled without anyone contacting me if this flight is in any way okay, or acceptable for me. This time around it wasn't. I tried contacting the airline, where no one ever picked up. I waited more than an hour on hold. Eventually I solved my own problem on the site, when someone rescheduled an earlier flight and I took the spot. Lucky me. As it turned out, I frequent the Toronto Islands area and someone there told me why my flights were cancelled: a dense fog. A pretty good reason. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, of course, there is a weather station right next to the airport and forecasts are readily available. Porter Airlines is unreachable, unreliable and disorganized: they had plenty of opportunities to assess and address the situation, contact me, and even plan for an alternative transportation for me. None of this happened."
Pros: "comfort"
Cons: "On the first leg Flight 720: 1. A Black man sitting behind me was challenged (and humiliated) by a Porter agent who came on the plane before leaving the gate, that he was sitting in the wrong seat. It turns out the agent was looking at his boarding pass for the NEXT next connection flight. That delayed the take off by 10 minutes. 2. Then while taxing away from the gate for takeoff, another Black man on the same flight whose mother tongue is not English nor French, did not understand that he had to remove his earbuds for the takeoff. He said he was confused by the instructions, so the the pilot decided he was "non-compliant" and returned the plane to the gate to have him removed from the flight, bring police on the plane. I am sure he lost a lot of money and will have future difficulty flying in North America. That delayed our flight another 40 minutes, and many of us missed our connecting flights in Toronto. I just have two wonder if a white passenger would have been given the benefit of the doubt."
Pros: "Porter Airline was amazing!! They use glasses instead of plastic cups! Nice, cheap, on time, and free wine!"
Pros: "Fast check in and customs lines in both airports"
Cons: "The chips are pretty bland. I appreciate the free refreshments, but would like a bit of choice"
Pros: "Kind flight attendants, everything went very smoothly"
Cons: "The toilet could be cleaner. The seats were also a bit dirty. I think the plane hadn’t been cleaned well at Dulles. Which is a shame because the flight, its timing and the service offered were all excellent."
Pros: "Unable to fly to Toronto. For anyone that does not have a Canadian passport, an electronic Travel Authorization needs to be completed when flying to Canada. As I was not aware of this form that needed to be completed prior to my travel I was not able to take the plane."
Cons: "I wished I had that information ahead."
Cons: "Massive delays!!"
Pros: "I worried about flying in a turbo prop plane but the flight was supriseingly pleasent. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay extra to pick my seat assignment but I understand that was only for the lower priced leg as there was no ectra fee for the "flexable" return leg."
Cons: "Small airport no amenities."
Pros: "The complimentary self-serve drinks in the boarding area which included sodas, water, espresso, coffee and many other coffee products."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing, great price and service!"
Pros: "On the whole the experience was good ."
Cons: "Took Too long at the check in counter."
Pros: "All of their flights are late, so you won't miss a connecting flight."
Cons: "All of their flights are late. No running water on one of my flights."
Pros: "The snacks and quick boarding was good. Flight attendants were okay."
Cons: "No kiosks to check in. You have to check in at the counter, but if you check in early online you still have to check in at the gate. They have all these policies about carry on bags, but their plans are too small to even carry them on. All rolling bags still have to go under the plane. My seat was dirty and worn out."
Pros: "Loved everything"
Cons: "Porter was very poor at managing our expectations and ultimately providing a quality service. Our flight was deleted several times before it was finally cancelled and we had to take a much much later flight. 3:50pm ended up 9:40pm, taking into consideration the need to be at the airport 2 hours before our flight because it was trans-border. He reason was also absolutely unacceptable - weather. Really? Where? It was great in Dulles Airport Washington DC and fine at Billy Bishop Airpot in Toronto. No offer of anything. No we weren't expecting something. But an offer would have been awesome. Not our first Rodeo."
Pros: "The convenience of flying to downtown Toronto is unbeatable. Plus, it was very easy to board and un-board such a small, cozy plane. I appreciated the generous carry-on policy and the affordable price."
Cons: "I wish there were AC outlets to charge devices. My biggest complaint however is that pens were not provided to fill out the Canadian customs declarations forms passed out on the flight, forcing passengers to find people to borrow pens from. An introvert's nightmare."
Pros: "That it was an hour flight and was late for more than hour."
Pros: "Flights delayed and no proper update provided."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival, no surprises."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Snacks on the plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Plane small and a little cramped. Overhead bin small, not enough space to place carry-on. Plane did not feel clean. Inside interior seemed old."
Pros: "Both the flights Landing Takeoffs were soo perfect,did not feel it took off and landing at the short runways were soo perfect. The crew meaning the air hostesses were soo hospitable with their great smiles on their faces to greet us, help us (especially me)being a handicapped.while serving don't know how to write how they took care, especially getting me to the wheel chair and the staff who took me in wheel chair to the next flight sevices were all 5 star and plus. I would for sure ravel with PORTOR AIRLINES if they go to the destinations I am going. Oh forgot the hospitality at the Toronto Airport was un believeable. Thanks to everyone even the owners of Portor Airlines."
Cons: "First checked bag too expensive at $37"

Flight attendants were great! Seats were a bit small.

Pros: "My special needs son wasn’t seated with us, crew was very kind and accommodating. And even though we managed to shuffle the rest of the family ourselves, they came back to check to make sure he wasn’t by himself."
Pros: "The crew were super nice even though we were a little late leaving, we made up time."
Cons: "For a stripped down airline I was still very pleased with the trip. It really reminded me of a Southwest Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable the whole time. No room to move, or get up to use the restroom.drinks were flat."
Pros: "Timely departure and before time arrival"
Cons: "Extra charge for cabin luggage"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and patient despite setbacks. Really appreciate how hard the whole Sun Country crew worked."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues, which ended up having us get caught in a storm in Orlando. We ultimately de-planed 4.5 hours later than planned."
Pros: "They got us safely to our destination."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to check in the night before our flight, only to find out that the only way you can do that is to pay money to select your seat. So, we checked in at the airport, only to find out that the cost for a checked bag is now $25 instead of the $20 it would have been to check in early online. Not to mention the fact they charge your for a carry-on which is $30 if you check-in ahead of time, but $40 if you check-in at the airport!! Clearly they want to try to give people an incentive to check-in early, which is fine, but then making you pay extra just to select a seat!! What a joke! We will NEVER fly Sun Country again!"
Cons: "There is none"
Pros: "Nothing about this flight went well. We landed in Orlando at 4am. And we’re stuck on the plane for 6 hours."
Cons: "No USB ports to charge devices. No tv. No compliementary food while we waited."
Pros: "We got our luggage quickly."
Cons: "Wish it wasn't so expensive to carry on my luggage."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. When I tried to eat my salad my head bumped into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Direct flight. Being on time."
Cons: "No food or entertainment. Not much leg room. Baggage policy"
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance"
Pros: "Nice Staff"
Cons: "They charge for everything the planes are a bit outdated, boarding is backwards they load middle bank then front very weird."
Pros: "Everyone and everything was extremely efficient. I particularly enjoyed the pre-recorded timed announcements."
Cons: "My flight time was changed multiple times, the final change was not communicated and myself along with other passengers missed the flight. Employees refused refunds, failed to apologize and/or provide a phone number to reach Sun Country. Did not offer to reschedule or assist in finding another flight. Overall seemed unorganized, unhelpful, and common courtesy for customers was not exhibited. Never flying with Sun Country again,"
Pros: "Sun country people honestly seem to like their jobs and their customers. It shows in their work. I hope they can continue to make enough money being nice."
Pros: "Flight staff were friendly. We actually felt like we had more room. On-time."
Pros: "So comfortable and clean!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "no snacks"
Pros: "We got exit row seating for free"
Cons: "We didn't know if we would be seated together and I reserved seats in advance and I think was upgraded to exit row but not sure. Also not sure how to reserve return flight seats to make sure we are together."
Cons: "The way the mechanical delay of a broken windshield wiper was poorly communicated, the 4 hour delay before even ordering the part (confirmed to me by a family member working for the airport) and total delay of 15 hours for the flight proves to me that Sun country is unreliable and will never receive my business again"
Pros: "On time, professional crew"
Cons: "The canned safety audio"
Pros: "Very friendly, efficient , clean, comfortable and reliable"
Cons: "Which there was more flights to Boston vice versa"
Pros: "Left on time, landed early. Comfortable seats. What more can you ask for on a flight."
Pros: "short wait lines to check in and security"
Pros: "Sun Country checked my bag for free since they were short on space. The seats were comfortable and they offered drinks and snacks often. The staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We took off late due to a mechanical but were not updated regularly."
Pros: "I liked on the way there that the pilot came on a few different times with announcements with is very calming to get updated. This used to be a given; however, it isn't anymore so this was nice. plenty of seat room."
Cons: "turbulence was pretty bad on our flight both ways. Pilot on the way back began descent and all standard announcements were made by flight crew, several minutes later he finally announced he was landing. The price"
Cons: "the fact they didn't tell us what was going on...we sat there waiting to board for over and hour with no explanation."
Pros: "Everything moved along swiftly. Check in, boarding, and departing the plane."
Cons: "No in flight snacks without purchase."
Pros: "Crew friendlinesss"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew friendly"
Cons: "The check-in counter was limited in ability to serve frequently telling customers to call the 1-800 number which didn't pick up for anyone. Not helpful."
Cons: "Flight was continuously delayed, had to take a packed bus from the gate to the airplane... not sure why because nothing was explained, everything was a surprise. Had to board the plane in the windy, cold outdoors then sat on the plane for another hour waiting to take off. No free beverages were offered - not even water or blankets or eye masks to make the late night flight somewhat managable after all the delays."
Pros: "Landing."
Cons: "My Flight was delayed. Hard to check in and know updates without an app Available."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, I checked a bag and was able to pre board. We arrived slightly early."
Cons: "Didn't get a free snack (so I can't rate the food or the entertainment as there was none), couldn't check in online"
Pros: "You cannot checkin online without joining Ufly.....but no one ever told me that......this is ridiiculus"
Pros: "Flight attendants very helpful and accommodating."
Pros: "The staff helped get a full flight underway in a timely fashion without being rushed."
Cons: "Checking in was smooth however the loading was not organized."
Pros: "Easy access to loading helpful customer service checking in great service on plane . The attendants were so pleasant. Loved the whole experience."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Cost to check bags was only $20 for the first bag! The staff was helpful and polite"
Cons: "No entertainment options or food available to purchase, so be sure to bring your own food and entertainment."
Pros: "I like that SunCountry flys directly to my most important locations,"
Cons: "Can't spring for a bag of pretzels or something?"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and friendly"
Cons: "I thought that for the amount of money that this flight costs, there should at least be a free snack; especially if there is a delay"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and pleasant. I was very satisfied."
Cons: "Changed gates 3 times with gates far apart. Changes came with claims of soon boarding, only to delayed again on arrival at gate. Tried this airline, won't again."
Pros: "Crew, on time, wheelchair service"
Cons: "Cramped seating, food"
Pros: "The 2+2 seating in first class is a very nice change from coach. The employees are very nice and knowledgeable. The price break between checked bag fee and free checked bags of first class make it an easy decision to fly first class."
Cons: "The seats while having more room were uncomfortable for a 6'4" tall person (headrest digging into my shoulders and an odd lumbar section that seemed to be designed to give you back pain. However, the return flight seats on a different plane were incredibly nice and reclined more."
Pros: "Staff friendly & efficient Price was good."
Cons: "Tiny seats -- no leg room."
Pros: "I liked getting to board first because I volunteered to have my carry on taken as a checked bag."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount of space I had. But that can be expected, so not a big deal."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, there were extra seats on the plane which gave us room to stretch out. Easy experience all around."
Cons: "Apparently (from the conversation behind me), the cheese/cracker platter ran out on the flight, which I had on a previous flight. Its awesome, but if this is worth writing about, then I cant really complain."
Cons: "It was a little hot in there"
Pros: "Overall not bad at all :)"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "This was an older plane with no upgrades including no Internet and the very small poor quality Monitors in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. The seats were very uncomfortable. The transfer in Vancouver after customs involved going outside in the cold to and from the bus. There was no warning. The customs area red jacketed help personnel told us that it was just as fast to go throught the general customs are instead of using our Nexus cards and this turned out to take forever. So very disappointing."
Cons: "Better communication at all levels. Remember that the overall strength of a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and this trip had many weak links for us making it a challenge."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. The seat was not very comfortable - it had a very firm seat cushion. The flight time was about 5 hours so it was OK. I adjusted to the feel of the chair. We had seats next to an exit door so we had more leg room which was nice."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable. The seat cushion was quite firm. I sat for 15 hours on a Qantas seat which was quite a bit more comfortable. There was no onboard entertainment unless you had a cell phone and could download the West Jet app. I was spoiled by my flight with Qantas from Vancouver to Sydney. They had touch screens on the backs of the seats so you could choose movies, radio, games, and flight info and the seats were much more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating as they were able to get me a wheel chair on short notice....thank you, thank you. The seat was not the best because the seat-back did not recline (we were seated in front of the EXIT row)....not good."
Cons: "A service of H20 should have been offered...especially when leaving very dry Palm Springs."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "Crew were genuinely always smiling"
Pros: "Crowded"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Hard landing,cramped seats"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was the first time in 37 years that I have flown so i had a little motion sickness but that has nothing to do with your crew or airline. This experience was very good thank you"
Pros: "Seats comfy, crew excellent"
Pros: "ON TIME."
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seat was ok. A little cramped."
Cons: "Super slow boarding and entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then at the gate boarding didn’t start till 10 mins before take off. Took off almost an hour after the delayed take off time."
Pros: "This is a no frills flight that does not offer food or entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are always uncomfortable as it is a smallplane"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "First flight got cancelled. Mind you it was a 830am flight so I left to the airport at 5am. The moved me to 10am flight, then I get to the gate and get notified that I was put on the 1145 flight. The longest day for me in a long time for travel."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Cons: "No headsets Ran out of several of the food items -- I was in row 10 and they served from the front.... A bit disorganized boarding process but it was Mexico ... Comfort? The seats are way too crowded, and the guy in front of me put his seat all the way back so it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Very bumpy ride, wished it was cancelled. I was motion sick the entire ride, and no water was provided until four hours in, and while I understand it was due to turbulence, perhaps if it is too bumpy to serve water for the first four hours we should not be flying at all. Also very little food is provided for a 5.5 hour trip, two biscuits is not sufficient and as we landed near midnight there are not many options to acquire quick food either."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Pros: "WestJet has very good hard shell seats on the 737-800. These are well contoured and padded, and far enough apart to offer decent legroom (row 8). The seating experience was vastly better than being in a “preferred” bulkhead row on an AC Rouge B767-300. Boarding was efficient so we were able to leave the gate slightly early."
Cons: "Pre-purchased meals are delivered with the first service after take off, which was awkwardly early on a five hour flight that departed at 3 pm."
Pros: "left on time."
Pros: "Due to a baggage check-in snafu, we were very late to arrive at our gate. But we made it! And the staff were still very kind to us even though we arrived so late and they didn't know why. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever been on, and the snack and beverage service was just fine - I loved that cookies were an option and not just pretzels. Overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "JP the flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process Too warm"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Westjet service and staff are friendly and helpful as always."
Cons: "The delay waiting to have the plane deiced before departure was a bit of a pain, but I also know this is out of control of the airline or the airport for that matter. It is something that can happen with the weather, so we just have to be patient."
Pros: "Flights were on time and luggage arrived safely."
Cons: "I couldn't access inflght movies as I didn't realize I had to have the WestJet App downloaded prior to the flight. In any event I like having a screen in front of me rather than looking at a tiny Android screen. Also on a 5 hour flight it seems we should get a hot meal rather than having to pay extra for meals."
Pros: "Friendly relaxed crew. Overall organized and efficient."
Cons: "Both flights were late"
Pros: "Stewardess let me change seats to a cooler part of the cabin at the back of the plane."
Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."
Pros: "The most amazing flight crew. The flight was very cold and one of the flight attendants surprised me with a tea to make sure I was warm. I fly frequently with many different airlines and West Jet ALWAYS has the best flight crew."
Pros: "Haven't flown Westjet in years. Don't know why but I don't have sore kneecaps, was served great coffee, the stewards always smiled and had funny things to say, and the gate keepers were happy and honest. I'm going to be a frequent flyer now for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like....um....nope. no complaints"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"
Cons: "no vegan options on the plain no tv screens"
Pros: "Direct flight from my hometown of Palm Springs Ca to Vancouver Canada"
Cons: "Left late and I arrived 35 min late had to go through customs and didn't make it from international to domestic. Rebooked a flight 3 hours later for $75."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
Pros: "Amazing crew who made us feel very comfortable as we traveled with our 9month old daughter. Westjet stands out because of their commitment to service"
Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."
Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."
Pros: "When I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to AA failure at the gate. The woman at the westjet gate was super friendly and kind to me. She gave me a good seat and meal vouchers to get me through the night. Unlike AA who could not care less."
Cons: "I missed my flight but that not your fault."

Terrible airline. Completely disorganized and incompetent check-in process. 2+ hour flight delay and total lack of communication by their staff to the passengers. I missed my connecting flight as a result and was forced to reroute to Panama through Copa airlines in order to return to Bogotá, which took almost 10 extra hours. I would never fly GOL again.

I missed it because of the delay in the other flights. Attendants in the airport sent me from one side to the other many times due to poor information.

Too much delay in the first two flights, so I lost the connection to the final destination.

Pros: "Comfortable seats, all on schedule, and kind team"
Cons: "Extremely messy boarding, confusing guidance, no social distance. I suggest you board from the back of the plane, up to the front, after accommodating special needs passengers. Thank you!"
Cons: "No masks. I didn't like it."
Pros: "Crew was nice and organized, easy check-in."
Cons: "Had the last seat, so could not recline - lady in front of me had a chair that went super far back and was practically in my lap, turbulence was crazy landing!"

Pros: "Aeronave"
Cons: "Serviço de bordo"
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."

Cons: "nothing crosses my mind now."

Pros: "Traveling from JFK TO GRU. Fight got delay by 2 hrs. Arrived at GRU 8:28. Got the luggage in 20-25 mins. Run like crazy to the check in 15 min. Got there by 9:15 only to find out it’s been closed for checking bags. I beg , implore and there’s nothing to be done. Pay extra for 2 extra bags, for what? Nothing. Lost about $75 altogether non refundable. SUCKS."
Cons: "What’s to like? Because of 30 they couldn’t added mire luggage. Begging imploring it didn’t matter. Ok I didn’t like loosing $75. Who’s gonna refund? Nobody. SUCKS"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Pros: "The crew. They are very careful."
Cons: "They charge me by my baby stroller! They lost part of my bag. Never more I will travel by GOL."
Pros: "No primeiro trecho que fiz (Salvador - Congonhas) a aeronave era nova e bastante confortável. O voo chegou ao destino em menos tempo do que previsto."
