Cons: "Not delay the flight for 3+ hours"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Pros: "Was gud"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."
Pros: "Comfy seats, quick service."
Cons: "If you are in Zone 3 or 4 you pretty much have to check in your bag back there is no more room. Which I don’t understand and is highly incovienent."
Pros: "Service by the Delta team"
Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"
Pros: "great service, easy to get on and off, snack options and drinks were all great"
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"
Pros: "Service; security gate in NY close to departure gate."
Cons: "Arrival Gate in San Jose far from exit."
Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Pros: "Hot towel was a plus"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."
Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."
Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"
Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."
Pros: "As always, the crew and amenities were first rate."
Cons: "We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced."

Cons: "No tv but understanding"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."

Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"

Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."
Cons: "No trash bag in my seat for puking or bubblegum"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"

Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"
Pros: "The check-in process was very easy and friendly. The flight attendants seemed nicer than other airlines."

Cons: "When landing on final approach close to the ground, the pilot pulled up and passed the airport. It was almost 10 minutes before he got on the intercom and told us what was going on. Apparently traffic control told him there was a backup and to circle around. Not knowing what the situation was, was very nerve racking. It would have been nice to hear an announcement of the situation sooner."
Pros: "Smooth flight, staff are all friendly! Overall a great trip!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment require extra charge, although I understand that it is standard for short trips and smaller planes."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "no refund at all worst outcome"
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"
Cons: "WestJet seems unable to stick to a schedule. Three of my four flights were delayed and a connector flight through Toronto was cancelled altogether just after midnight, leaving me stranded at Pearson Airport. The ground crew were disorganized and unable to provide clear answers – other than their complete assurance that WestJet bore no responsibility for providing hotel accommodation."
Pros: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"
Pros: "Before taking this flight, I was very nervous because of all the bad reviews on here and other sites. The only good reviews seemed to be by people from Alberta (not really trustworthy, as they seem to support anything that's from Alberta, and note that Westjet is based in Alberta...). But I was blown away by how organized Westjet was and how nice they were. All the flights were on time (I had a few layovers), the staff was helpful....I really have no complaints. Sure, they don't have a plethora of great in-flight entertainment such as movies, etc. But when I fly, I'd rather pay less, have the staff be nice/organized, and just bring a darn book to entertain me. It was a great first flight with this company. I would fly with them again....and I can't remember the last time I said that about any other airline. So do yourself a favor: Don't listen to the bad reviews on here (unless you're obsessed with in-flight entertainment and big-butt first class seats)."
Cons: "The movie and T.V. show selection was bad. But that's not a big deal for me...."
Pros: "Easy check-in, bag drop off even with elderly person traveling with us. Great staff at the airport."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant it just gets a bit too hokey!"
Cons: "Calgary airport for a transfer between Canada and the US is like a bad episode of Monty Python! It takes far too long and is far too dependent on the efficiency of silly tram drivers, baggage handlers who are phantoms and computer efficacy! All I care about at the airport, and all I want from airport staff is ruthless efficiency. Anything besides ruthless efficiency is just obnoxious and wastes my time!! No wifi on the aircraft nothing decent to eat on a flight scheduled during the dinner hour"
Cons: "Hate to have to buy the food!! No entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and took another 45 min to leave once boarding was complete"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Small seats. Nonexistent food and entertainment option are all self provided"
Cons: "Being late into LA"
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to download an app for vieweing movies burning flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and boarding took forever (much longer than usual and I fly pretty often)"
Pros: "Flight attendants were super friendly. The plane was very nice and spacious, the flight was smooth and the landing was excellent!"
Cons: "I was able to download the WestJet Connect app on my phone which gives you access to tv shows and movies to watch on your own device during the flight. The app was free and easy to use and there was a decent selection. However, the wifi on board is not free so even though you could watch the tv show/movie - the sound did not work unless you paid for it. There are many other airlines that offers everything for free - it would have been a more pleasant if we were able to actually utilize the service."
Pros: "The friendliest crew ever!"
Cons: "Hard seats no padding extrely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great crew, West jet connect worked fabulously"
Cons: "Cramped space and airplane food"
Pros: "No stops,"
Pros: "I travel on plus and the person who was in charge of our sección was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "what i don't like is that i had to wait for my luggage an hour . causin incomvinience for me later."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seats"
Pros: "Everything was excelente very nice personal."
Cons: "It was as if the baggage fell of somewhere from the plane and came in contact with water."
Pros: "My daughter ordered the tickets for us but she didn't pick seats. We forget to pre checked in, either. Our flight was very full so We are so lucky got the first class seats! This is the first time in our life with first class experiences! It was on the July 4th and saw a lots of fireworks in the airplane! We are so exciting! Thank you for West Jet Airline!"
Cons: "1+ hour before we took off after getting on the plane. 1+ hour before we got off the plane after landing."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving ywg"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, more legroom than the American Airline flight"
Cons: "I prefer to have a TV to watch instead of downloading the App."
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."
Pros: "Awesome crew, chill experience !"
Pros: "Nice Staff. Easy process."
Cons: "Would prefer actual tv entertainment. Not having to have your own device or rent one."
Pros: "Amazing to get out of Winnipeg on time and arrive early. Had a nice exit row and lots of leg room. No complaints."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment application, and the selection of movies. The crew was courteous."
Cons: "The price was high for the calibre of flight, and the luggage overage charges are just silly."
Pros: "Comfy legroom (for someone who is 6'5") and comfortable seat."
Cons: "Late take off, late arrival at gate, late baggage delivery."
Pros: "Good flight. Had internet access for low cost."
Pros: "Comfortable seat - great service"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The leg room"
Cons: "This review is about Air Canada from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Our flight was cancelled the flight for technical reason, without a notice. We found out when we got to the airport with four children. We were put on a later flight that also left Los Angeles later than the scheduled time. We arrived to Vancouver so late that we could not make the latest BC Ferry to Victoria that left at 9:00 pm. We lost our hotel reservation in Victoria. We were stranded in Vancouver till we could find a hotel that cost us an extra $600 (US dollars), an extra reservation for the ferry and lost a precious half a day of our vacation. When we complained about this wasted time and money Air Canada did not utter not even a clear simple apology. It offered a lousy discount on our next flight with the company, believing that we may ever use such an uncaring company"
Pros: "Decent crew. Decent collection of movies."
Cons: "Overall, this flight service from Montreal for Los Angeles (6 hrs flight) service was worse than the interconnection flight I have experienced in Europe (2 hrs flight). There is no snack provided on this journey and you have to pay for everything (snacks and even the headphones). On the European flights, the snack was provided multiple times for short duration of the flight."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Pros: "Overall it was a quick and painless flight. The crew was friendly and we had no problems!"
Pros: "Great service, staff very pleasant!"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."
Cons: "Only told after tickets purchased, that a visa was needed to change planes in Canada! This information needs to be provided prior to purchase. I paid one-third the cost of the ticket to cancel it and then had to book another ticket closer to departure which was more expensive. Have never heard of such a thing. I live overseas and but had a valid U.S. visa for my travel, but couldn't change planes without applying tor a temporary resident visa which takes longer to obtain than the time before I needed to fly. Very upset and disappointed. Will certainly avoid purchasing from Air Canada again."
Pros: "flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not of good quality, had too much spice and salt. Fruit was a little too hard to cut. Toilets trash was not cleaned from previous flight. She Asian movies were same as in the previous flight. Need to provide more choices on SE Asian movies."
Pros: "North American flights are definitely not as comfortable as in Asian flights"
Pros: "Was offered water frequently :-) at least didn't have to ask or pay for it. Entertainment was offered. Limited choices."
Cons: "There was no announcement for boarding and we found out only when we ASKED personally. Nothing on the board, nothing through speakers. Smaller aircraft for this leg of the journey, not to blame, but seats are old and need refurbishing. They're not torn or anything but not comfortable at all. Restroom very small and uncomfortable like a truck stop. Always a line at the door."
Pros: "cruising slightly high to avoid turbulence, the way from Toronto to Winnipeg we were flying on altitude 26,000 and then 30,000 feet. on west jet we were flying on altitude 39,000 feet with less turbulence. thanks"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs from Pearson. Scheduled to depart at 645, didn't show up at gate till 730. Headset plug didn't work, full flight, nowhere to switch."
Cons: "Same movies"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working and in one of our seats the Audio was not working"
Pros: "Easy boarding n Nice friendly crew - offered refreshments often n was on time - got lucky with extra empty seats - food option was pretty good for flights"
Cons: "The Entertainment monitor on some seats are erratic n movies don't come on - they need to check them all"
Pros: "GOOD LEG ROOM"
Cons: "THE FOOD STILL SUCKED."
Cons: "Changed the non stop flight on me to stop in TO from Montreal. Really lame and added 3 extra hours to my flight back to Los Angeles."
Pros: "The saftey"
Pros: "Check in was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was 4 and half hours late for weather and mechanical reasons. Airline responded very well but such a long delay is annoying"
Cons: "I could not checkin online and had to arrive really early at the airport so the agent could do it at the counter because Air Canada's system screwed up my ticket."
Pros: "On time or early"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, no leg room"
Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"
Pros: "everything is Ok."
Cons: "space is too small."
Pros: "very quick ride. Service was fast and efficient,"
Cons: "those who had carry on bags and had no room to store in the overhead had their bags loaded in cargo at no cost This is very annoying for those of us to pay for luggage. I see this all the time and very frustrated about this issue."
Cons: "Up to the last minute didn't advise flight was to be delayed. We board the plane late . Then brought bak to gate because of mecánical problem. Flight reschedule at 7.30 next morning. Had to organize on my own amother flight more acceptable and will leave 2 days late. No support for cab to go back home No voucher issued. The worst service ever. Was traveling with a pet."
Cons: "I wish there were movies available to watch or purchase to watch. It was a 3 hour flight and I feel at that length of a flight a movie would help to pass the time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat, bad entertainment."
Pros: "crew was polite"
Cons: "when i bought the tickets we weren't told that the baggage and food wasn't included and I had to pay for it (US$100 or the baggagge alone) we were changed to a different craft and could't choose my seats in thiis craft they seat us all separated, when i had already chosen our sits in the former craft they didn't sit us together when we asked for it at the counter we were 1.5 hours waiting inside the airplane , so i lost my bus to Santa Barbara we weren't given any snack for the delay"
Cons: "Extremely tight space."
Pros: "Why did we have to pay for head phones?? No included food what so ever!! Not even peanuts or a cookie. Why try to make me buy everything after I paid a full price?? The seats were crowded, every person walking in the aisle brushed against my shoulder. Air Canada, never again"
Pros: "Tv screens. On time arrival even though we left late. Not Stingy on beverages."
Cons: "Ineffecient boarding process. Walk to ticket counter from parking was a distance Walk from ticket counter to checked in luggage drop off was ridiculously long Seperated my wife and kids and myself on the plane even though we booked together. I had to ask people to switch seats with us on the flight. Refused to help with this. Money making ploy. Not classy or respectful. I don't care if we don't get to pick out seats but at least set us up together."
Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"
Pros: "No entertainment beyond ipod rental..."
Cons: "Not enough time (1 hr.) for connection in Calgary... very stressful in USA Customs line and subsequent USA security line... baggage did not make flight and still not received in 38 hours... difficult start to vacation."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "No leg room. Very stiff seats"
Pros: "The flight was great."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything extra."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment so I really can't rate either of those things"
Cons: "flight was late to arrive. waited 15 mins to talk to gate attendant and about the connecting flight. was told it was ok. when we arrived had less then 20 mins to run from terminal 7 to 2 and go thru security all over again. no one at the gate to help direct."
Pros: "we boarded on time, and the flight was uneventful. David's Tea is now avaialble for purchase. great price and although small good selection."
Cons: "All items are now up for purchase- except for soft drinks and juice."
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Pros: "They Valet my carry on bag at the boarding gate and it was at the carousel by the time I got there."
Cons: "The actual size of a carry on seems to be in dispute. To fit one into the "measurer" at the airport is so tight, but there has been no problem and plenty of room in the overhead bin. I guess they are trying to force people into the $25 charge for a checked bag, not a surprise."
Pros: "On Time departure. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortable"
