Cons: "I didn't understand why it took us so long to board and take off. The weather was fine; no explanation was offered for our 90-minute delay in takeoff.

Cons: "Better food options!"

Pros: "Everything was done orderly."
Cons: "After all was boarded, there was a sick pssenge on board. It took them 45 min to decide she should get off. Dont know why it took so long."

Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at sarapascual@hotmail.ca"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "45 min delay at LAX"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, and despite us boarding late, we still made it to our destination on time."

Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Staff was good"

Pros: "Friendly staff, superb landing in difficult weather."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. No WIFI or on board entertainment."

Cons: "No entertainment on board. You had to have already down loaded West Jets app. Didn't know that. Last time I flew WJ there was intertanment. I asked before I left Canada if there was in flight duty free. From LAX to YVR. I was told yes. So didn't purchase any. Only to find out, a big fat no. Haven't for quit awhile.Super. Landed at YVR, went to WJ to find out about luggage. Told me I have to get a hold of Qantas. They had nothing to do with it. Went to Qantas was sent to a place that was closed. Two days later got a call from WJ asking why I didn't pick up my luggage. I told him the story. He kept saying why didn't I go to them. Because I was told it was Qantases fault. Got luggage 2 days later, damaged. I'm thinking maybe the case fell off the conveyor belt while loading in Melbourne ."

Cons: "The flight got delayed by 4 hours. No separate accomodation or food was provided. Unhappy with the delay with no compensation"

Cons: "Took 45min to bag check (3 agents and only 3 families ahead of me) and when I did bag drop, I’d already checked in online, the agent tagged my luggage to Calgary not vancouver and put it under someone else’s name. It’s been over 34 hours and still no word from westjet. Calgary is an 1 1/2 hr flight to Vancouver. Not impressed."

Cons: "flight delayed 2 hours. Updates on app were slow (notifications)."

Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"

Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."

Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."

Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"

Cons: "There were so many delays"

Pros: "Check in and boarding was done very efficiently. Economy seats were way more comfortable and roomy than any other airline I've flown. Will definitely check out West Jet's loyalty program and flight schedules from now on. In fact am flying West Jet to Florida in February."

Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"

Cons: "The breakfast croissant filling was disgusting!"

Pros: "I like that we were on time for departure"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Good service, boarded quick and landed early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "easy"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Long delays, little communication, stuffed into a hot bus before the plane was cleaned - not allowed off the bus, no air conditioning and kids crying whilst we were trapped for a while in the bus."

Cons: "No complimentary hookers, whisky or cocaine"

Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Too many follow ups No response and same updates when u check for one"

Pros: "Nothing. Not one redeeming thing to say. What a shame."
Cons: "Everything. Massive delay, but not that much as it was JUST before the threshold (by 5 minutes), cheats. Radio failure was the excuse, followed by crew change - yeah, right, not buying that one - more like radio was fine, but crew wanted to chip off work early and avoid last flight (common tactic for a demoralised/unionised workforce). Border is still broken at LGW. THIS is Broken Brexit Britain."

Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible catering Seat comfort horrible worse than low cost Lounge overcrowded with no seat and no food left"

Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"

Pros: "The flight was one hour delayed however the captain was extremely good in 1)explaining in details the reason for the delay (air traffic control and parking slot issues) 2) allowing us to take pics in the cockpit! It turned out to be a memorable experience! In terms of customer care, it doesn't get any better, thanks captain!"

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and polite. Energetic, good ambassadors for BA."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. My tray table hadn't been wiped down in a long time, and the prior passenger's used flight socks had not been removed from the drawer. The pillow was laughable - - flat as a pancake. . One of the business class lavs was out of service. . This was an overused 777 desperately in need of a refurbishment. And don't get me started on the ridiculous 2-4-2 seating in business class. How does BA think it can get away with it, when competitors offer 1-2-1?"

Cons: "Very bed I will never use this service iny more"

Pros: "Clean plane, efficient cabin crew, very slick boarding."

Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time. Went up and came down again without any fuss. Cabin crew were efficient."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. Whilst I was travelling posh at the front of the aeroplane, why not fill it up from the back? I would be quite happy to be the last one on board."

Pros: "Polite considerate staff and more comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "Shame there are no free snacks or drinks on board anymore."

Pros: "Checked in online and very quick bag drop at MCO."
Cons: "Awful food both for dinner and breakfast. Choice of chicken curry or cheese and tomato pasta but had already run out of chicken by the time we were served. Menu doesn't seem to change from one year to the next.Bread bun like a rock, salad uninspiring. Breakfast equally disappointing with a dry bagel and a couple of breakfast bars."

Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."

Pros: "Seat was good position."
Cons: "Check in system down again meaning manual check in and causing 2 and half hour delay. This is too common with BA now and ended costing me a lot of money due to missed connections."

Pros: "Crew and check-in staff were welcoming. My wife walks with the aid of a stick and we were offered priority boarding at Gatwick without having to ask."
Cons: "Seats in the 777 were not that comfortable, in-flight entertainment system is showing its age and the food continues to be mediocre in Economy, at least it wasn't all spicy this time. Breakfast consisted solely of an uninspiring dry bagel and a crunchy bar. Taking to bringing food onto the plane with us as a substitute/supplement."

Pros: "The lounge at San Diego was good. Plane was punctual and only took 30 minutes from touching down to get to the long stay car park."
Cons: "Plane was very old. Entertainment system slow and live maps would not work. Its a pain having people stepping over you to get out of their seat in business class. Toilet was pretty disgusting at the end of the trip after one passenger was sick."

Cons: "Need more space"

Cons: "Delayed missed connection arrived many hours late"

Cons: "Don’t get the egg salad breakfast sandwich. It’s got more turkey and cheese than egg salad."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Email flat attend it was very rude to a handicapped gentleman."

Pros: "plane was very nice and roomy, crew were friendly and good service"

Cons: "Connecting flight was delayed over 3 hours for system failure on original plane, after boarding. Gate was changed 4 times after that."

Cons: "Seat pitch was too tight, especially when the person in front of me pushed their seat back."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Seats are too narrow We paid extra to sit in the exit row so leg room was good Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats too narrow...would like to see wider seats to be included when you pay a premium for leg room"

Pros: "Honestly. Nothing."
Cons: "Internet was down and no entertainment on a transcontinental flight. That’s absurd. Overhead luggage packing was not regulated so made intentionally difficult. Assignment of bags to be checked should be based on size not who is last. Grossly disappointed with service"

Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."
Cons: "Small space once passenger in front of you lowers their seat back. Difficult to get in and out of my seat like that"

Cons: "3 of the crew Members were extremely rude... snarky remarks when asking very simple questions... We are supposed to have a good experience as a costumer. Not my fault the crew might be tired or having a bad day."

Pros: "Free tv which is rare"
Cons: "I had selected my seats ahead of time and they weren’t kept. Day of I tried to buy a seat and it told me there were tech issues and I had to go to a front desk to check in/purchase. Well all that got me was the very last row, middle seat. No recline and seriously no leg room or breathing room once the person in the row ahead leans back. Crew was not helpful. Not to mention, the security line was outrageously long and I got to my flight just before it left only to find out my seating arrangement and be presented with more disappointment. Took over an hour where I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes in this airport (I fly often). Didn’t have time to go to BR or grab a snack Then my second flight was (again another middle seat) way too warm. The attendants said “there’s nothing we can do”. I was so nauseous and uncomfortable the whole time."

Cons: "delayed/not on time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, bumpy and staff didn’t look for headphones"

Pros: "Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "Pilot's skill level and ability - lots of maneuvering and a very poor landing"

Pros: "The flights didn't have any delays"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."

Cons: "Surprised to see they charge $50 carry on fees at the gate."

Pros: "Courteous staff! Very accommodating."
Cons: "The company did great, no complaints."

Pros: "The flight was great--good food, good service, good entertainment, on time."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. Four people traveling together arrived in Phnom Penh, but our luggage didn't. It took almost 2 days to be reunited with our luggage."

Cons: "Racist gate agent made me check my baggage even though it fit."

Cons: "The crew looked very bored."

Pros: "Staff at SAN was good helpful. Check in was seemless."
Cons: "Wishing that they would serve something to drink — even if I would have to pay for it. Flight attendant gave me wrong directions and I left for another terminal while my carry on luggage (which had to be checked) was still at the gate. I had to wait until it arrived at baggage claim."

Pros: "Take-off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "Was not able to track the progress of the flight on the monitors No entertainment Seats do not provide comfortable leg room"

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Not accessible. The tv wasn’t captioned"

Pros: "Flight was great. Seats were roomy and comfortable. There was a free in flight movie. It was easy to go to the restroom."
Cons: "No space in overhead cabin near my seat. I had to go to the back of the plane to find room for it."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful and friendly, the seats are so comfortable and the free tv is such a perk!"
Cons: "I wish the flight crew could more strongly enforce the storage issue. When I have to check my bag, adding another 40 mins to my airport experience, because someone puts their purse in the overhead storage it peeves me a bit."

Pros: "Service in coach was nice and attentive."

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No food or beverage service"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "De-boarding was slow"

Pros: "Flt time!"
Cons: "Boarding announcer was rude"

Pros: "On time departures and arrivals. This domestic first leg of the flight had fairly good leg room and seat width."

Cons: "Seat was awkward. Staff didn't respond to 2 calls of with the button. Air seemed exceptionally dry and was oddly warm."

Pros: "Excellent service! Nice, smooth flight. Recommended!"

Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses to transfer from AA to PAL."

Cons: "No choice in food. Flt attended said he would try to find a sandwich or snack left over from coach but he never offered anything."

Pros: "we had all the necessary conditions for work, rest, sleep and eating. The level of service has increased"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good."

Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Chicago went well. We left on time and arrived a little earlier than expected. I was worried about the weather delaying our flight once we go to Chicago but we encounter different problems. as I will explain next."

Pros: "First class was Super. Good food and nice service."
Cons: "No screens on a new plane"

Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"

Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable seats ever"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The customer service and the lack of assistance from the airline ground staff was horrible ."

Pros: "Seats reclined, beverage service."
Cons: "Wish movie would have been a better movie, not animated."

Pros: "Flight was pretty much what you'd expect, pretty basic"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight I woulda been nice to have more than just two cookies for a snack. Luckily I brought me own. Also there's no entertainment except for 1 magazine, so again, if you're flying American you better supply yourself with whatever you'll want before boarding"

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."

Cons: "Fat ads sitting next to me should have purchased 2 seats"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There was a ton of turbulence"

Pros: "The flight was great. There was free in seat entertainment with tons of movies! The flight attendant gave me free fruit & cheese plate to go with my wine. Great service, easy fast boarding & the flight was early!"
