The professionalism. Nothing
Wonderful experience all around.
The agents at the desk at both airports were very helpful and friendly. The flights were really short and we arrived early to both of our destinations (going to Austin and returning home). The flight attendants were all very friendly and accommodating. Probably the best flights I've been on in a while. Keep up the great work.
The Alaska employee at my gate confirmed my luggage was on the plane, that was not true. I got to Seattle and my luggage never came they said it was still in LA. Not sure why he said it was on the plane, the international passengers on my flight before this one who just so happens to be on my connecting flight were all lining up at the luggage claim desk. None of luggage made it on the plane and the Irish man behind me in line said he also confirmed his luggage was the plane at the front desk at our gate.
Would have been great if they communicated better about the delays.
Pros: "Although departure was delayed, we arrived early!"
Pros: "The Pilot kept us safe XD"
Cons: "Pretzels!!! Instead of those cookies, bleh"
Cons: "Your premium seating snack were dry and boring. Second leg from Seattle to.Vancouver I was charged for free drinks, snack. Then flight was barely 35 mins, waste of money and looked no different from basic seating"
Pros: "They were really nice. The flight was delayed due to bad weather in DC and they let us deboard for awhile to stretch our legs, etc."
Cons: "Nothing. Even their legroom in coach was good!"
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."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, decent staff"
Cons: "Late takeoffs and delays both legs"
Pros: "On time departing and landing."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful Comfortable Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "All aspects were very good. Non-stop flight to STL a very good option for travel."
Pros: "The crew on both flights were excellent"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that when we returned to St Louis our luggage was not here. And to make matters worse there were no Alaska agents to assist us in any shape form or fashion. I made a call and left my name and flight information and hope someone will call me tomorrow with an update on my luggage and have it delivered to my home. Because as of right now we have been traveling almost 24 hours from Alaska to St Louis. Please call me if you need any additional information."
Pros: "Great staff - fun and casual . - price was great"
Pros: "Great newer 737-900"
Cons: "Temperature was too warm for the entire flight. Several asked for more air conditioning"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "I tried to get an aisle seat and was told that was what I was assigned when I checked in at Beijing. Even though it was in the Premium section with extra legroom, a middle seat is difficult for a 5' 11" person, especially after flying for as many hours as I flew. I was constantly bumping shoulders with people in the aisle and window seats."
Pros: "I did not feel well on this flight and had a great experience. The crew was very helpful and kind and attended to my needs."
Pros: "Punctual, professional and comfortable. This airline has never disappointed me. I appreciate the seat availability and the staff are always so very pleasant. Well done."
Cons: "My return flight has a child seated behind me. Not great."
Pros: "Price quick boarding. Great staff comped my checked bag. Not overbooked. Prompt beverages. Love it!"
Cons: "Nothing! I almost even signed up for the credit card lol"
Pros: "i got a good window seat"
Cons: "didnt like the hour delay, but what can you do"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hrs waiting for a crew member to arrive! The flight attendant was unpleasant."
Pros: "Boarding the flight was easier than most flights that I have been on and the crew was fairly helpful when it came to needing help with anything."
Cons: "The WiFi that is provided is horrible. One second it would work and the next it would not. Not a lot of choices when it comes to food for purchase on the flight and you get tired of the same thing being offered every single flight."
Pros: "It was a direct flight and quick boarding. Pilots did a great job being on time...Alaska Airlines made up 45 mins to and was on time from Portland, Or..."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, and the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "lost my baggage, huge pain in the butt. At least they said they'd cover everything. We'll see what happens."
Pros: "Customer service the people are always amazing! My 6 yr old daughter and I had assigned seats apart and they had no problem getting us together I appreciated it. Also when we had a delay they gave us food vouchers which helped me and my children out."
Cons: "3 hr delay but glad they got it all fixed. Also a little confusion when boarding they left out a few rows and skipped us but no biggie we all get on the plane."
Pros: "I love the boarding process. It only makes sense to board the back of the plane first. Finally! They have nice size overhead bins. Love the charging ports in the back of the seats. It seems like someone finally thought through the flight process. Even with a little turbulence the landing was smooth and just a little early."
Cons: "Not their fault, but not a fan of long layovers. Anything over an hour to an hour and a half is a pain."
Pros: "arrived very close to on time staff were quite pleasant"
Cons: "small child (3-4y) climbing on seats - standing with one foot on each seat , straddling the aisle, and walking in aisle - at times when both seat belt sign was on and off (zero attempt by parents to have them stop - laughing at the antics and/or dad playing video games) I could not get the gogo app to work to watch the "free streaming" movies"
Pros: "the digital boarding pass is great. The food tasted good but was costly."
Cons: "it was hot on the plane. a 4 hour flight and you have to pay for food?"
Pros: "I did not eat on flight , just had the drink that was offered. Also did not use the entertainment offered. It was nice that both were available."
Pros: "Completely full flight but loaded quickly and attendants were great!"
Pros: "The crew was great! Humorous, courteous, and helped passengers feel relaxed. Coffee and biscoff cookies are awesome. Also enjoy when they come by a second time to see if you'd like more to drink."
Cons: "Seating was tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Loved the charging ports..My fruit and cheese tray was actually fabulous. Boarding was done fairly quickly and we even left a few minutes early."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the free wifi so I could text my husband to let him know that I was going to be landing a little bit early!"
Pros: "The flight from St. Louis to Seattle was delightful. The crew were top notch and provided good food, snacks & drinks. All of which I endulged. We landed on time..... but that's where the good times come to an end."
Cons: "55min wait on the after landing. Another hr to get bags. Roughly 2 hr delay. Also, having the return to SeaTac after taking off due to mechanical failure. Rrrr! 4 cancellations thanks to the snow and the port of Seattle with their "Regulations""
Pros: "it is too short time to catch this flight between two flights.so i didn't catch it,but they give next flight to stlouis,unfortunately the flight time is too late.hope next time can have a longer time between the two flights.because they saled together,it is good to think about the foreign passengers."
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."
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."
Pros: "Smooth, clean, on time, ease of all!"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I was able to get an earlier flight."
Cons: "Did not buy food. Don't think I was offered tablet for movie."

Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"

Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. We had the emergency exit row so leg room was awesome! Kind bar and soda we good."
Cons: "Flight delay due to the older aircraft and lack of a pilot that knew how to fly it. Bathroom needed some tending to"
Pros: "Equipment felt a bit dated. No entertainment system, which was fine with me. Skipped the offered snack. Just had water. Flight was onntime."
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "I love the in-flight movies!"
Cons: "This wasn't pertaining to the flight or airline; but the TSA line was ridiculously slow."
Cons: "Direct flight, on time arrival"
Pros: "i fell asleep until we arrive to STL."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"
Cons: "Temperature was too cold"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Pros: "For a short-haul flight on a small CRJ, it was the most pleasing and comfortable flight. No delays and everyone was pleasant from ground staff to flight crew."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Pros: "Did not eat or use entertainment."

Pros: "Excellent flight. Nice new aircraft."
Pros: "I had a good flight and the Captain kept us informed of our flight delay in departing. S"
Cons: "A male flight attendant is showing me where in the bin to put my carry on and didn't even make an attempt to help me even though I'm an older woman. Sometimes the passengers are more helpful."
Pros: "Average comfort compatible with all airlines"
Cons: "WestJet is a good airline"
Cons: "The food could have been better. I don’t mind paying but some nicer, healthier choices would have been nice. It is airplane food so no real surprise. :)"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly!"
Cons: "Westjet connect was not available on this plane!"
Pros: "I like that my original flight was rescheduled but I needed to arrive in Vancouver for my connection so I'm happy they moved me to an earlier flight. Very accommodating!-"
Cons: "Entrainment on flight"
Pros: "Crew were fairly attentive, have experienced better. Liked the Canadian entertainment options, even if very limited."
Cons: "Seats were okay, the plane is really showing it's age. Movie selection was very limited, and very dated."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Frequent American Airlines passenger. Found WestJet had far more leg room and plenty overhead storage. Plane was clean and flight attendants where attentive."
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: "Dry accommodating staff all around. Thank you"
Cons: "More space between people. Not much you can do I understand that. So overall great"
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."

Cons: "Always a ‘full flight’ and they run out of spacein the overhead storage"
Pros: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute I had to buy another flight with Air Canada that cost me double the price and i was stuck at the airport all day !!!! The Air Canada flight was at 6.30pm ,and the West Jet was suppose to leave at 11.30am"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Having my luggage. 2nd flight and 2nd time my luggage didn’t arrive with me."
Pros: "A little late on take off but made up time in the air. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed a bit tighter seating than other WestJet flights I've been on. Still it was fine for a 3 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "That I had to pay $30 for one checked bag, would have thought the first one was free!"
Cons: "For some reason, the return was in Hamilton not Toronto. Unfortunately, I noticed after I paid. Not sure why the flight wasn't from Toronto."
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Cons: "Gate arrival and boarding delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great. Tea or coffee would have been nice. Having to pay for everything is ridiculous"
Cons: "Three sets of crying children and parents who unable or reluctant to deal with them. Held everyone hostage."
Pros: "Excellent service and smooth flight!"
Pros: "WestJet great airline"
Cons: "YYC new Gate “C” poorly organized"
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: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"
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"
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."
Pros: "I travelled alone with a baby and all the staff at Westjet wete so helpful"
Pros: "The trip was uneventful........................................"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..............................................................."
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."
Pros: "The plane was less busy so many people had an empty seat next to them. It was great for leg room and I slept the whole flight!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Flight was on time. No overbooking."
Pros: "Not much.... so..so"
Cons: "Crew. & entertainment ( why pay for it )"
Pros: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."
Pros: "The plane wasn't full."
Cons: "The crew was late."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable . Good price and no delays. I like buying just what you need (food, movies, internet) at a very decent price."
Pros: "On time, luggage arrived even with yer short connect in Calgary"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they never let us onboard even when I was able to make it to the gate before it was closed. After missing the flight the hotel vouchers was provided but we were asked to report in 2 hours (i.e 4AM) so think abou whole night was literally wasted. Finally next flight was 11AM in the morning which I ended up boarding and finally reach Toronto after 8 hours of delay."
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"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
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"
Pros: "staff was great, left and arrived on time and we stayed up in the air!"
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Pros: "If I could choose my seat"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Cons: "Delayed three hours with no communication or compensation. Poor customer service"
Cons: "Person in front of me had seat reclined from take off to landing. Nobody checked. Nobody told him it had to be upright during takeoff and landing. I believe that is a safety issue. Isn’t that why the flight attendants are there?"
Cons: "The wifi signup process not seemless with Android."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating, even on short flight"
Cons: "Good - no complaints."
Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Old aircraft, ok flight, on time"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew. On time."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost two hours due to crew staffing issues."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was as expected. 1 star on entertainment as there was none. Would have liked to have been able to get 3 seats together without extra charges."
Cons: "It was nice. And boarding was good too."
Pros: "This flight is the normal nonstop from Mia to StL. The seating is tight but not completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "I just had knee replacement 4 1/2 months ago. It was difficult to fully extend my leg under the seat in front of me because the space between rows has shrunk to include more seating."
Cons: "the fly got delayed for more than 3 hours."
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"
Cons: "There was just an announcement that the refreshments will be served shortly but there were no refreshments. Take off and landing was horrible. Flight was shaking way more than usual."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "It was easy to travel"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"
Pros: "The middle seat was empty I had an aisle seat. That was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi screens for books or movies but I had my iPhone."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The hour delay due to maintenance and fueling."
Pros: "I liked having a window seat."
Cons: "My screen was broken, so for 6 1/2 hours, I was unable to watch any movies and didn't see the safety video either."
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding numbers"
Cons: "Seemed to be an unnecessary delay in departing a half hour late"
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Pros: "Nothing to expect from Domestic fight."
Pros: "Plane was ancient"
Pros: "Entertainment, 110 plugins for devices, internet."
Cons: "only free meal option was cinnamon cookies."
Pros: "All flights were on time Greatly enjoyed the trip"
Pros: "On time, arrived early."
Cons: "Seats too close in front of you."
Cons: "Again out of snacks and she skipped our row for drinks. Again small issues but what else are they doing?"
Cons: "The flight was fine, but the aircraft arrived 3 hours late. That’s a long wait."
Cons: "Check in was just awful. Then a three hour delay and no one was forthcoming."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Would have liked some better movie choices."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything about this flight, except that we arrived safely. I had the last seat, next to the toilet, and that container or whatever it is, was dirty. Every time someone flushed, I was bathed in the smell of urine. It was raining in Toronto; consequently, my checked bag was wet through. I’m glad I was coming home rather than arriving at a vacation destination, where all my stuff would’ve been wet. I’d like to see some effort put into keeping my bag dry. Also, the passengers had to slog through the rain to get on the plane!"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful, lucked out with exit aisle."
Cons: "Boarding took way too long. Typically an airline will ask people to voluntarily check their overhead luggage free of charge if they know it's a full flight, not on this flight. Instead, they tried to get everyone to board with luggage in hand, then once they realized there was not enough space they asked people to hold on to their luggage while they came through the plane to tag it and stow it below - very inefficient and made the boarding process crazy as people tried to make their way around luggage that was sitting in the aisles."
Cons: "AC was late causing a missed connection to YXE. They were unable to rebook us to Saskatoon for two or three days! They offered standby or Edmonton as our only options. We flew to Edmontonand then drove 6 hours in order to get home for work with no sleep. Unimpressed."
Pros: "That we eventually got a flight home."
Cons: "Being stuck in Boston and Ottawa for 2 extra days and adding around $1200 on to our trip in hotels alone (I was travelling with 4 kids on a school trip and my wife). Additionally, we didn’t find out the flights were cancelled until we arrived at the airport. Apparently, they had been cancelled 2 hours before but there was no notification. Air Canada offered no help whatsoever and the guy at the “service” desk in Boston literally said there was nothing he could do to help. Not even find a new flight. Spent 90 minutes on the phone trying to re-book, plus re-booking hotel along the way."
Pros: "It really sad to know on a 5 and a half hour flight they only offer coffee tea or soda ☹☹ . Never knew about the changes in purchasing a meal or snack.."
Cons: "Should have been informed somewhere about the changes in purchasing a meal."
Cons: "Why no food or snacks?"
Cons: "Food not included with insane flight costs"
Cons: "The television screen with on-board entertainment options didn't work properly, so I was unable to watch movies/television or play games. This was disappointing as it was a fairly long flight."
Pros: "Plane was nice Crew was great"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and comfortable seats"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Pros: "Flight crew was vey nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. AC put us in a hotel for the night. Thanks for the $15 dinner voucher. Almost paid for the salad. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."
Cons: "There were too many things to mention, but I must say the customer service is not a strong point neither is a customer first mindset. The airlines apparent made several changes between my trip and I was threaten with additional bag fees when my ticket was very clear for two carry-ons and to checked bags, which also confirmed when I confirmed my seat request. After I was required to check my bags, I realized my earbuds were in the bag and the flight attendant did not give me a pair and actually told me I could purchase a pair...REALLY!I just did a 15 hour flight from Dubai, you were delayed by 2 hours on my last connecting flight and you can't comp a pair of .25 cent earbuds."
Cons: "Kiosk option wasn't supporting the baggage check policy, resulting in passenger were unable to print baggage tag and had to wait in long line over 1.5 hrs to check bag with staff. They also understated. It took me over 2 hrs to get throug check in process, not counting 45mins + through security check and custom. I had asked staff to expedite the process. C my flight was boarding. Staff could care or less and walked away. I had to run to my gate and almost miss my flight. Also, I was told that 1st checked bag was complimentary as this is a express aircraft. Staff wouldn't honor that. Come to find out as I entered the aircraft that they made many passengers do the complimentary gate check anyway. Rude and unaccompdating staff."
Pros: "the service was excellent"
Cons: "I wish Air Canada sent check-in emails for flights in as well as out. I didn't get a reminder check-in email when I was flying out and that worried me a bit that there may be something wrong with my reservation. It also irritated me that because I had booked my flight through Kayak and not Air Canada directly I was not able to make any changes to the reservation online - I had to call their reservation phone number (from another country) and be put on hold for 20 minutes (so needless to say it was an expensive phone call)."
Cons: "We did not make this flight due to the first flight being over an hour late. This caused us to miss our connection to St. Louis. While they rerouted others on the flight, they did not reroute us because we didn't check any luggage! Their reasoning was we had a chance to make the connection. But they made us wait in a line for 10 minutes to be told that despite our requests to go to the gate. By then it was too late. We then had to fly stand by to Chicago and stand by again to get to St. Louis."
Pros: "Super nice crew!"
Cons: "Inaudible boarding"
Pros: "The price :)"
Cons: "Wasn't able to play the videos on my iPhone."
Pros: "The Air Canada ground and flight crews did the best they could in a bad situation."
Cons: "Where do I start? Maybe by saying that I'm really not a complainer. I'm really not. I know there are understandable, although not always pleasant, occurences and situations that cause or contribute to things. But this shuttle flight was a disaster of poor airline planning. The 1.5 hour flight kept getting delayed again and again and again. The assigned gate got changed 4 times and we found ourselves having to walk with our bags from one to another. It finally took off at 12:30 at night with an ORIGINAL departure time of either 8:40 or thereabouts. You're talking about a 4 hour delay. Weather? Raining, but nothing that was serious. It was just, well, raining. No explanation was ever given for the delay although, uhh, complimentary bags of pretzels were handed out. I felt bad for the ground and flight crew. They had to deal with us less-than-pleased passengers and, really, the delay was beyond their control. Which leads me to believe poor scheduling by Air Canada of available planes was a reason. It was all very, very bad and, given a previous flight 10 days ago that took 5 hours instead of the scheduled 1.5, we'll never use Air Canada again."
Pros: "North American flights are definitely not as comfortable as in Asian flights"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Broken toilet for this flight"
Pros: "The food was airline food, the movies worked"
Cons: "Given customs form in German, when asked for English flight attendant said they were out. asked another later and she brought it immediately. After herded through security (again) and customs, with no explanation on what to expect, our connecting flight's gate was in the basement. It looked like a third world bus station. No place to sit, totally packed, could not understand announcements, only bagel place to eat that was out of most everything. I will avoid Air Canada and Toronto airport if at all possible."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Didn't realize AirCanada Rouge didn't have entertainment, which allowed me to get work done...but you know, movies are cool too. Also the seats are super close together and make it a bit clostrophobic."
Pros: "It was a short flight and I shared my seating with average weight people. The crew members and the pilots were very informative."
Cons: "During a short flight there is not much to experimented and less to comment."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Flight was on time. What i didnt like was the crew. The flight from Toronto to Los Angeles was five hours. They had the fasten seat belts light on the entire trip because they said the turbulence was bad. I have been on alot of flights and let me tell you that the turbulence was not bad at all. After three hours prople decided enough was enough and started going to the restroom. The crew would get all bent out of shape and get on the PA yo please stay in your seats and not use the restrooms at this time. Really!! Well that didnt happen. The only thing they give you is one free drink. No penuts, cookies or pretzels. If you want food you have to pay for it. I sat by the window and my window was all greasy. I couldent really see out of it. I did use the rest room and it was pretty clean."
Cons: "Flight was on time and the restroom was clean"
Pros: "At least it was fast.."
Cons: "No space, no tv, no food, no music, no blanket, no water, nothing. Pack everything you need or bring your credit card"
Cons: "As expected with Air Canada, the service is awful with bitchy stewardesses, the food is poor, the plane is falling apart. Midway through the flight, the plane looked like a pigsty with garbage everywhere. When serving the meals, the stewardess just said to everyone, "You want it or not" and moved quickly with many people wondering why she was behaving so rudely. In addition, we couldn't get clear information about the baggage allowance. This is partially due to booking through Kayak where they don't tell you the baggage limit and some of the flights were code share flights even though all were with Air Canada. Couldn't tell if we had 1 or 2 bags included. This didn't help with our packing. In the end we had 2 bags and wish we bought more stuff."
Pros: "The Air Canada agents and staff were very helpful and accommodating to the best of their ability. I hugged one female AC Agent in TO as she was so kind and helpful, and told her she was the highlight of my day."
Cons: "The processing of Air Canada passengers to the connecting Gates and through Customs for USA international flights was a nightmare. It was very disorganized, with hundreds of passengers herded like cattle, poor communication, customs slips not provided on the AC Flight before landing so as to be completed in advance. There was staff shortage, and not done in a timely manner so as to make your connecting Flight. It has truly been a most stressful experience for me this and each time I have to go through Toronto to make a connecting flight , and I will avoid this flight plan in the future at all cost."
Cons: "We got a hotel in St. Louis so we'd be plenty early for our morning flight. Got to the airport more than 2 hours early, checked in and waited. They announced over the overhead speakers that our flight was delayed due to mechanical issues. Then delayed again. Then cancelled. We were on the phone with both the airline and priceline ASAP. By "on the phone" I mean "holding for the next available representative...", which was more than an hour wait for both. The airline didn't have another flight they could fit us on until next week. We asked priceline to get us on the next available flight. We held, were disconnected, held, held more, disconnected, held more...until the day was gone. That evening they finally said they booked us on a 6:15 a.m. flight. I asked for an email confirmation and when it didn't arrive several hours later I called back. "Please hold" was the catch phrase of the day. Eventually a rep came on the line and said that we had a 6:15 a.m. flight, gave me the flight number, etc. and said the email would arrive shortly. We went to bed feeling good. We got up at 3 a.m. to get to the airport by 4 a.m. The airline didn't have anything on us. We had two hours to get this straightened out so we weren't TOO worried. "Please hold" When the priceline rep finally came on the phone she said we had reservations and the airline should let us on. Even though it was 5 a.m. now there was a long line at the airport check-in. When we got to the front of the line the guy dug deeper into his system, said he could find our reservation, but that priceline just hadn't purchased the tickets. I told this to the priceline rep on the phone. "Please hold" We watched as our flight left. We spent the day trying to get priceline to get us on a flight, but I was never able to speak to someone able to get us on a flight."
Cons: "You put me on Delta once I got to Detroit. Confusing and exhausting when you're not use to different airports and flying."
Pros: "The 2-3-2 seat configuration is better for travelling as a duo. We were provided with blankets and pillows for the 9 HR flight. Food was quite tasty for airline meals."
Cons: "Host staff made very few trips up and down the aisles. Have not before been on an Air Canada flight where there are no seat back screens, so it was a surprise not to have any in flight entertainment."
Pros: "It was nice of airline to set up an extra flight in the afternoon so we didn't need to spend even more time in Toronto airport."
Cons: "My first flight had free snacks and movies to watch yet it was only an hour in the air. This flight was much longer with no movies and having to pay for snacks. Seems a tad backwards."
Cons: "Mine and my wife's legs did not fit. The seats were spaced much closer together than is standard, and this made the flight unbearable. I stood in the isle for most of the flight. To make things worse on this 5 hour flight, there was no video available to distract me."
Pros: "Crew very polite and professional."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at destination, so this caused a bit of a problem for me as Philadelphia was not my final destination. I had to take a bus the next morning at 7AM to Pittsburgh. My luggage finally was delivered to me within 48 hours, so that was great."
Cons: "Rouge was the problem here. Unlike regular Air Canada flights, the seats are extra cramped and there are no seat-back TVs or power outlets. (Also, the crew didn't seem to include any French speakers - weird for Air Canada.) I preferenced AC for this flight. Next time I would avoid them if it's Rouge."
Pros: "Flight was short. Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not much to like in a short hop in a small plane."
Pros: "friendly staff, not a full flight which was nice to stretch out"
Cons: "the food was not great, would have been nice for TV to have hockey championships game available to watch- another airline had this option on a flight during a Steeler game and it was nice."
Pros: "Food was great. Inflight entertainment needs work."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment needs more updated options ."
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "older small plane. It is what it is."
Pros: "Flight crew as great. Our flight was a third full and after 2 weeks of traveling together they allowed us to separate so that we could both stretch out and have some breathing room."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and next day flight was delayed for 3 and half hours."
Pros: "Air Canada is very good at what it does. The plane was boarded in a timely and efficient way, and the flight was very comfortable."
Cons: "I travel with a briefcase, and although I was among the first people on the plane all of the first class overhead bins were already full. Consequently I had to place my briefcase under the seat in front of me, which left little room for my feet."
Pros: "They were pleasant n nice."
