Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect"
Cons: "We were delayed for nearly 4 hours and were stuck on the plane while being lied to telling us “we’re up next to get de-iced then we can take off” then one hour goes by and the same announcement. Will never fly Alaskan again."
Cons: "Great. Easy"
Pros: "I was on a plane with leather seats and sexy red lighting. Clearly a plane aquired from Virgin during the merger. I had a handsome young gay flight attendant who gave me a big smile. And there was free Chardonnay for the beverage."
Cons: "My seat mates on either sides were both young millennial females who both had huge carryons they stuffed under the seat in front of them and both were gorging on food they brought with appetites that seemed to convey they hadn’t eaten in days. The plane was fine. The passengers not so much."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Took the same flight two weeks ago now they even stripped beverages to nothing. Water or oj. Asked if I could even buy something else and got a response with attitude that they don’t offer anything else on later flights. Disappointed"
Pros: "On time departing and landing."
Cons: "The staff was great and checking in was simple."

Pros: "Organized and on time!"
Pros: "Great staff - fun and casual . - price was great"
Pros: "Earlier arrival then scheduled Great service Complimentary drink"
Pros: "I liked nothing. TSA is a sad partner in the “Expidite your Line Wait for Cash” racketeering scam. They make Hundreds miss their flights because of lengthy wait times, then leave you only a couple options; Pay or miss your flight. Absolutely sickening."
Cons: "I liked nothing. TSA is a sad partner in the “Expidite your Line Wait for Cash” racketeering scam. They make Hundreds miss their flights because of lengthy wait times, then leave you only a couple options; Pay or miss your flight. Absolutely sickening."

Pros: "You just can’t beat the attention to service on alaska."
Cons: "WiFi was down and food was sold out... but who cares, an hour flight."
Pros: "Crew is always great. Their boarding process is horrible. Too many elite groups that push all over everyone else. Love their charging ports.. entertainment is great once you get it going. Lots of good choices."

Pros: "Comfort is always good as an Alaska MVP. Food is always good (fruit & cheese plate, yum!)"
Cons: "My bag was left behind in Seattle. First time that's happened."
Pros: "The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!"
Cons: "I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers."
Pros: "As the flight was delayed, staff made sure we had water and snacks in the terminal and kept us up to day. Kudos!"
Pros: "On-time departure and no hassle boarding policies."
Pros: "very comfortable seats and comfortable plane in general."
Pros: "The plane was modern and comfortable, including the adjustable side wings on the headrests. In flight free wifi and entertainment was a wonderdul way to pass the time. Crew was so friendly. Flights on time and luggage retrieval was very speedy."
Cons: "The seats had plenty of leg room but seemed incredibly narrow. I was definitely rubbing my neighbors and I am a petite lady."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was excellent, except the set cushions."
Cons: "New seats not as comfortable as the older seats."
Cons: "no chargers"
Pros: "They did what their jobs required. They were never rude. If they were they would be talked to. They did what they were suppose to do. What else can I say? It was only an hr flight. I hour flight Jeez!!!"
Cons: "Doesn't work with iPad mini. Unsupported"
Cons: "We picked our seats for both round trip flights well in advance and we ended up being assigned less desirable seating on both flights. On the first flight we we ended up in the very last row next to a lavatory and on the second flight we had seats where the backs did not recline also. Go figure!"
Pros: "I fly with Alaska Airlines a few times a year to visit my best friend and her family in Northern WA and I find that they are always on time (unless waiting on a plane to come in) and they're efficient to get people seated and ready for takeoff by the posted flight time. Always professional!"
Pros: "Staff and crew were very friendly and accommodating. Flight was good and on time."
Cons: "I had arrived from Ft. McMurray more than 3 hours before my connection, but was was paged for a search just 30 minutes before my flight boarded. Delays in security meeting me almost made me miss my flight. I didn't understand why they waited so long to do the search. It should have been done when I first got there."
Pros: "Alaska is efficient and friendly . The plane was new and clean. The plane left SF on time and landed lightly --perfect flying ."
Cons: "Because of the wind in Palm Springs, the flight crew wasn't able to do a real drink service. I look forward to a glass of cheap Alaska red wine on my Friday afternoon flights!"
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft. Makes sense to board back of plane first"
Cons: "I was offered water, wine or orange juice but told there wasn't time to offer full beverage options because the flight wasn't long enough. Though the cart was fully stocked. How could it take more time to pour ginger ale than water? Made no sense."
Cons: "If United can serve more than orange juice or water, so can you"
Pros: "It was great"
Pros: "The pilot introduced himself and kept us updated on the weather and turbulent."
Pros: "I was able to board early due to my premium status on American. The aircraft, a Boeing 737 was relatively new."
Cons: "The flight was over half an hour late, and we were told the airline was servicing the cabin while we waited at the gate to board. When I got on board, I was the first to arrive at my row and there was so much trash on the floor, in the seats, and in the seat pockets in front of me that I gathered what I could carry to the restroom to dispose of it before sitting down. There was still tons left. When I alerted the flight attendant, she just shrugged."
Cons: "@AlaskaAir I am completely disappointed and appalled at the lack of customer service I received tonight. It seems that someone who was manning your desks decided that they did not want to help us (and other passengers in the same situation) and sent my husband and I on a wild goose chase throughout SFOAfter speaking to many airport personnel, as well as Alaska Airlines baggage employees who were completely unhelpful and boarder line rude, we returned to the unmanned kiosk where we were no longer able to print our passes, nor were we able to speak to a representative. We were forced to stand there as our plane boarded and eventually took off. It is ridiculous that your airline would not staff their counters with someone while there are still flights departing. We are now embarking on a quite lengthy road trip which has cost"

Cons: "Broken plane. Why not take better care?"
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "One free beer"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times and they lost my suitcase"
Pros: "This is a super aircraft with many amenities. The flight was smooth for the most part. Loved the movie and the classical music. The crew seemed to work well with each other and was very friendly."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."

Pros: "Easy, fast boarding. We arrived early too."
Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "1. Great movie selection 2. Healthy food option 3. Craft beer was appreciated 4. Friendly crew"
Cons: "1. Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew was very rude."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "Most comfortable flight I have taken in some time. Spacious seat, power, good entertaiment, attentive flight crew. On time. Not usually a Delta flier, but times and destination made Delta the choice. Turns out a great choice."
Cons: "Short 30 minute delay; arrived 5 minutes late. 45 min flight doesnt allow for any food service."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "On time, courteous"
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfortable flight"
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Cons: "Airplanes are filthy; asked for Coke without ice & the flight attendant filled my cup halfway. Unbelievably cheap! I was afraid to ask for more, for fear that I'd get an up charge!"
Pros: "Great service and amenities for a low cost"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "Loved the onboard entertainment and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I travelled w/ one adult and two infants internationally and could not book the infants' tickets online had to do it over the phone. When we got to the airport we had to pay $255 for 5 bags, that's almost another ticket."
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Pros: "The crew wa very nice, food was very good for economy."
Cons: "The screen for the entertainment center wasn't working properly on the right side, but it was no big problem."
Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."
"See previous comments"
Pros: "Westjet crew are always amazing"
Pros: "Short and sweet."
Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."
Cons: "We paid for transportation to cancun and it didn’t happen. We hope there will be compensation for the lost day. So disappointing."
Cons: "More than an hour late departing. Added to that it was almost an hour before luggage appeared. Not West Jet’s fault but it made us even later resulting in some of our long drive of our drive to Grand Canyon being in the dark."
Pros: "The landing was perfect, in spite of snowy, icy weather"
Cons: "To be on time, delayed one hour"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly!"
Cons: "Westjet connect was not available on this plane!"
Cons: "baggage tag system at CDG Pairs was lame"
Cons: "The airplane is small... the seats are very small."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Westjet is just overall awesome"
Cons: "On both legs the seat was super uncomfortable. Really hard."
Pros: "Great job overall."
Cons: "Very poor customer service"
Cons: "Frequent American Airlines passenger. Found WestJet had far more leg room and plenty overhead storage. Plane was clean and flight attendants where attentive."
Pros: "Good food choices well prepared(even roll& breakfast croissant were excellent) An outstanding premium economy experience n stark contrast to Air France and other NA Carriers. Good wine list great service. Nice service touches like linen for table tops"
Cons: "Amenities on Asian carriers are more"
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Pros: "Airplane was comfortable."
Cons: "4.5 hr delay in Hong Kong airport."
Pros: "Crew was great, served us multiple times ! Even tho crew was late 25 mins. We have landed 10 mins early"
Cons: "Don't like having to download app for entertainment....some devices not current enough to download.. Not everyone has devices Kids disappointed..prefer Alaska monitors"
Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"
Pros: "I enjoyed every bit of the flight"
Pros: "noone booked in the seat beside me allowed for more room."
Cons: "food (ran out of items I wanted) seats are mediocre no entertainment stewardess forgot my cream for the coffee - too busy chatting with another passenger."
Cons: "Seats too narrow"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment option for longer flight?"
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Cons: "Late by 2hrs"
Cons: "I was told I had time to run to washroom before boarding, and 5 min later the boarding area was empty and I was locked out. Plane was ready to leave me because the guy at desk forgot to tell them I wasn’t there yet. Thankfully I was able to hunt someone down to let them know I was there."
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "The screens were so old and bad that it would be a total waste of money to pay for the PPV channels. Seats were hard and unconfortable"
Pros: "Westjet crew is fantastic!"
Cons: "Wish it could have been a longer flight to enjoy the WestJet crew’s hospitality longer"
Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"
Cons: "I accidentally seem to have picked a middle seat instead of the window"
Pros: "It is always an adventure flying into Lethbridge....maybe I should leave it at that. The crew both inside the terminal and on the flight were great, the service is great. It’s a very loud ride....if you have noise triggered headaches....I’m sorry. You’re in a flying cigar tube....up close with every other passenger and the open cockpit is a new experience....but totally fascinating too. The pilot and co-pilot are young but very compitant. The weather has a huge impact on your flight because if there is any wind you will get tossed around and the landing in Lethbridge is more of a roller coaster ride. Let me sum it up like this....if your not good with REALLY loud noise, or claustrophobic, or have any motion sickness issues.....rent a car and drive!!!"
Cons: "Don’t need to get there the 90 mins ahead as AC states is the policy, especially if you are on the 5 am flight because they aren’t. I made that mistake arriving at 3:30 am for my 5am flight and no one showed up til after 4am. It was really annoying to not know that ahead of time."
Pros: "Considering the winter snow storm in effect at the time of the flight, I think WestJet did well!"
Pros: "The plane was clean, and seating is very comfortable with enough leg room. Its one of the best domestic rides I had."
Cons: "- Booked using points & not offered the option to pre-order a meal - only non perishable food choices on board - flight delayed, crew at gate not well informed"
Pros: "There is no entertainment so why ask.this question repeatedly and I understand on longer flights that is valid but on these flights it is not applicable"
Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "I travelled alone with a baby and all the staff at Westjet wete so helpful"
Pros: "The overall experience on my westjet trip was great. Everything west jet does - and all the groups in the airport are fantastic !"
Pros: "The West Jet reps everywhere were calm, cool, and friendly. I thought they were terrific. In Edmonton, the women from West Jet did their best to help and keep the waiting disgruntled passengers informed. In Kelowna, when I discovered my luggage was still in Calgary, the West Jet rep was cheerful and helpful. How could I possibly be annoyed?"
Cons: "Wrong. I ended up in Kelowna."
Pros: "Safe and peaceful flight"
Cons: "A little bit late"
Pros: "Full disclosure, I did not partake in food or entertainment. But I had no issues. The staff was polite, I got on the plane, I got off the plane, end of story."
Cons: "The seats are to small, but that is every economy section that I fly on these days."
Pros: "I really liked the service with West Jet. The people were so friendly and helpful, and that was huge since we were not as familiar with Canadian procedures. After we got on board the flight, I do not remember much since I literally got on the plane and went to sleep. But I was comfortable enough to sleep!"
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: "Excellent staff. I wish american carriers would take lessons from them."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a 5 year-old boy who had a hard time sitting and his mother had nothing for him to do. He kept kicking me, by accident, and was disruptive and noisy. Finally I decided on a counting game with his m &m's and that lasted for about half an hour. I know that West Jet had mo control over this situation."
Pros: "Not often do you feel like you really "welcomed aboard." This was not the case on our flights to and from Calgary. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. That was refreshing. I did like the Westjet Connect feature. You don't have a TV screen in the back of each seat. You download the app and you get to watch TV, Movies, News all on your own device for free. A nice plus is that you can change all your devices with USB power port at each seats you never run out of a charge."
Cons: "The only thing that I did dislike was on the return we flew a 737-600 which did not leg room like the 737-800 we flew on first. The under seat storage is skimpy in the middle seat where an entertainment server is located"
"Love flying with them."
"Everything went perfectly. Check-in, bag drop, etc. The flight and crew were excellent."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "Customers service, politeness and general helpfulness"
Pros: "Seat room is limited, especially when you are in the middle seat."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Cons: "Charlotte lost my bag and will not answer"
Cons: "Flightleft 2 hours late and then an extra hour waiting at the next gate."
Pros: "The coffee was hot?"
Cons: "Communication was awful. Make flight attendant had less personality than a dusty brick. Idiot behind me was leaning on my seat so I couldn’t recline. It was just probably one of the worst experiences I’ve had flying."
Cons: "Getting a flight"
Cons: "American Airlies no longer partners with T-Mobile for free WiFi. :-("
Pros: "Deplaning in White Plains"
Cons: "Boarding the way there, they did not honor my AA Advantage card to board earlier because my boarding pass did not say so. Even after seeing it said so in the computer system, they refused to honor it. So this time, I gave up and boarded with the last group. No prior warning was given that this plane would not allow for carry on luggage in overhead bins. Further were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."
Cons: "I was forced to chance airlines, because, AA knew about an issue with the plane but still tried to used it."
Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Pros: "1) Puntuality in departing and arrival times 2) Very pleasant crew members"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."
Cons: "The gate changes...........and no information in 3 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Pros: "Like the new plane, clean seats, good leg room in premium economy. But attendants are beyond rude. No idea why but they even make you feel bad for asking for water."
Pros: "The flights didn't have any delays"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "I liked having the built in screen on the a321. Americans streaming service has lots to offer but the built in screens have more choices. I get why they want to just offer the streaming but I appreciate all the choices! There was a group number enforcer at the gate to make boarding more organized! She was polite but told the mobs that try to use the premium line to wait their turn."
Cons: "I asked for upgrades to and from Chicago. I’m a gold member and fly for leisure fairly often. There are so many people looking for an upgrade these days that you’re rarely getting the opportunity"
Pros: "I took American's first direct flight between Philadelphia and San Antonio. It was a nice plane, good service, and amenities for a cost. Love that the plane had plugs!"
Cons: "We had to wait almost two hrs on the plane before take off."
Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"
Cons: "After flying 24 hours one of four bags got put on a later flight. The line at baggage service was so long that by the time I waited for the bag it arrived on another flight 2 hours of wait! Unbelievable! Disappointing. And by the way if a passenger is assigned to a seat that doesn’t recline it should be heavily discounted. Heavily as in half price of a normal seat. It really is sad that airline industry is not more service focused and more efficient."
Pros: "The selection of music and movies to watch was extensive and wide ranging. All the Star Wars movies as well as great Disney movies as well."
Cons: "Felt very rushed when eating. Once the food/drinks were dropped off, it seems right away the staff was ready to pick up and clean."
Pros: "The flight left on time, there wasn't a lot of fuss about overhead space and we arrived early."
Cons: "They didn't offer any snacks...no pretzels or cookies."
Pros: "Food & Entertainment were good. Thankfully the crew seemed to have waited for us."
Cons: "We were late, so some guy took my seat. Attendant was annoyed that I didn't just take any open seat. I wanted the seat I purchased, near my wife. The other passenger didn't gain anything by taking my middle seat as he travelled alone."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival - friendly crew"
Cons: "No own movie screen."
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."
Pros: "The male server was great. The ice cream for dessert was magnificent."
Cons: "First class was awful- no drink service for far too long, didn't have my food order that I selected ahead of time, the female asian flight attendant was not friendly at all, the seat reclined at the back only there was nothing for your feet, the blankets were awful, and movie selection was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Pros: "Pretty much on time departure and arrival. Comfortable, larger aircraft than usual."
Cons: "n/s as only a 40 minute flight"
Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Pros: "Surprisingly the seats were not cramped as on other airplanesI have benn on"
Cons: "I wished there was no delay in Miami each way. Miami to Washington an overcrowded runway caused the delay"
Cons: "The landing gate in Palm Springs."
Pros: "Had window seat. Seat to close tho bulkhead wall. Shoulder literally resting on the side of wall the whole flight."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The planes were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't get a boarding pass for my third flight."
Cons: "Delay otherwise average"
Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Cons: "Lengthy delay due to a broken seat. Missed connection then the next plane had an equipment issue. Had to deplane after 40 min and wait on a new plane. Every flight has had an equipment issue causing a major delay. I'll never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "No seemed happy at all."
Pros: "It was great!"
Cons: "The original flught flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. So we never ended up going to Phoenix. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and then cancelled. We were given new flights the next day 8/20/16 and that was delayed for a few more hours. We wasted a day and a half at the airport and our hotel for the first night could not be refunded."
Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"
Pros: "We upgraded to business class so service was super attentive"
Cons: "Business class on AC was equal to premium economy on west jet but lwithout the amenities on west jet"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No free snacks just drinks! Its a four hr flight. We left late due to slow boarding and they were slow to load baggage. The legroom is just too small for a flight over 2 hrs"
Pros: "Premium economy service and seat."
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Slight departure delay - no big deal"
Pros: "Considering the thousands of passengers who saw their flights cancelled because of the grounded 737 Max’s the fact that I was on hold for only 30 minutes and then got rerouted for the next day is amazing! Thank you Air Canada."
Pros: "Early flight was not as crowded"
Cons: "But was very busy just the same. Weather was poor"
Pros: "Overall, the experience is fine. The flight entertainment selection is extensive for a short haul."
Cons: "Given that the entertainment selection is extensive, the connection ports are not working properly. Not all USB charging port and the power outlet port works as expected. The seat that I sat at does not charge and/or provide proper power."
Cons: "Sitting around Calgary airport for 7plus hours, Late arrival in Toronto at 6am - meetings start at 8:30. Second major delay (mechanical) in 3 weeks - losing confidence in AC"
Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing so far, thanks."
Cons: "JustFly did not release my coupon to Lufthansa or Air Canada, and so I was nearly prevented from flying."
Cons: "My seat was wet and i had to wait quite a while for it to be rectified. I asked to sit on a crew seat at the back of the plane and was told that i would break it. I found this rather disgusting . Seating plan is very crammed like sardines"
Pros: "The staff - they're always pretty good. The food is also very decent - lot's of jokes about airline food but it's not bad."
Cons: "The seats need some sort of engineering redesign - like maybe they all recline in a row. Airplane seats are never comfortable. Also, for entertainment, they offer USB and AC power which is good, but they should also look into upgrading all the tablets and running linux on them or some operating system with less overhead - the movie displays are really slow and unwieldy."
Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"
Pros: "I was reading so much about how cramped and uncomfortable the seats on Air Canadas 787's, but I don't think their product is any worse than most other economy class products out there."
Cons: "Their "continental breakfast" was a dry piece of banana bread and yoghurt. No jam, butter cheese or other spreads to compliment with your bread. Most disappointing "continental breakfast" I have had on a plane!"
Cons: "No offer to have transportation to gate. I am disabled and had a very long walk."
Pros: "crew was very helpful polite nice and welcoming"
Cons: "food was not fresh, hot meal was pretty terrible in both 2 flights"
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "Seat is not too crowded"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "Late arriving because of out delay from the original flight and missedvout on our hotel booking"
Cons: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."
Pros: "loved the free movies"
Pros: "The flight back to Newark was good. Boarding was smooth and crew kept walking around with water to keep everyone hydrated."
Cons: "The plane was old and cramped and entertainment system had issues. Movie choices were not that great."
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours, half and hour in the airport and another 1.5 hours on the tarmac (probably why I got sick just days after, sitting in the germ tube for that long) Seat did not recline, but was supposed to... No pretzels or peanuts offered like other airlines, just drinks Missed my connecting flight in LAX because of delay, but not after running frantically to my gate clear on the other side of LAX, customer service offered nothing to compensate for the flight we had just missed or any solutions for getting us home."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were narrow and sitting in aisle seat you were constantly hit every time cabin crew took trolley up / down aisle. Woke up by cabin crew banging into me."
Cons: "We had no tv couldn't charg my cell no one told as y it wasn't working"
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: "They wouldn't seat us together"
Pros: "Having the leg room of the emergency aisle"
Cons: "29f is marked as a window seat, it is not. It's an emergency exit. No outlets were provided so I had nowhere to charge my phone. My on flight entertainment system was stuck in the out away position. I was very sick and the emergency exit had a terrible draft upon landing"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Cons: "Can't believe not even pretzels"
Cons: "Carry on bags of 2 delayed seating of people"
Cons: "waiting times"
Pros: "Boarded late but quickly."
Cons: "Plane was very old and it showed"
Cons: "Too many people with more than two bags. You have to force more people to put there bags in the plane storage not overhead. Two many carry-on bags and people had back packs with another bag, some computer bags. It takes too long to board the plan"
Cons: "Lost my bag, I had to wait an hour and a half and missed a meeting."
Pros: "Super fast and easy process. Glad I flew air Canada"
Cons: "I had to pay for the food for my 4hr flight. It use to be that you were provided the food at no additional cost."
Pros: "Everything was satisfactory. I wasn't expecting to pay for my light suitcase"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "friendly prompt service, comfortable seats - free tv and movies"
Cons: "had to circle for about an hour before we were able to land due to a storm but that wasn't the crews fault - just bad luck"
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Too much delay"
Cons: "The biggest problem was a late arrival resulting in missing the gate and need to wait a hour on the taxiway until a gate cleard."
Cons: "I found the seats quite uncomfortable which is unusual for me as I don't have back or neck issues. Once I was able to position the seat after take-off the comfort was improved."
Pros: "AIR CANADA MAKES YOU FEEL TO BE A SPECIAL BEING, OFFERS INFORMATION, FACILITIES AND AID YOU."
Cons: "Q400 noisy, lack of storage space"
Pros: "I got to where I was going."
Cons: "Air Canada acts like a European low fare airline when it is actually just a major domestic carrier that nickels and dimes for everything and charges full cost."
