Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Passengers were told that the chief pilot was retiring following this flight. The second pilot described his very impressive career. Prior to arrival the plane was sprayed in honor of the pilot’s retirement."
Pros: "Crew very professional. Flight went smooth from start to finish. Traveling East the winds got us in almost an hour early."
Pros: "Quick boarding process and comfortable seats with small pockets attached to the big one on the back of the seats (great for small stuff like phone)"
Cons: "There is no outlet on the back of the seat to charge your electronics, which is pretty much a standard for most airlines nowadays."
Pros: "I would have liked watching free movies if I had known I needed to download an app BEFORE I got on the plane. I loved having an aisle seat."
Cons: "I did not like the 2 and a half hour delay. It wasn’t Alaska Airlines fault. Weather delay, thunderstorms in Boston. I did not like the pay to eat food choices. 5 hours is a long flight to only have a small sandwich or cheese plate."
Pros: "The crew was terrific"
Cons: "The long delay was miserable. Although we would rather be on aircraft that was running like it should. We were dead at that point in our journey and the long delay was very difficult."
Pros: "Even though there was no TV screen in the headrest, we were all provided with IPads to view. The controls on the IPad were quicker than the in headset TV's. The seats were comfortable and we all received a flight packet that included a toothbrush, eye shades, ear plugs and a pair of socks for our comfort! Blankets and pillows were in our seats when we arrived."
Cons: "I missed being able to see our flight path. On a long flight it's difficult to keep track of where we are and now much longer we will be in the air without the flight tracker. My baggage was misplaced, so I was delayed by needing to fill out forms for lost luggage. Thankfully, it was located before I reached my connecting flight."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Pros: "The flight attendant was friendly."
Pros: "The entertainment is great on Alaska."
Cons: "The flight got delayed a number of times, until it was 1:30 late. Then, since I have medical problems, and I was freezing (despite a sweater and a coat, I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and explained why, and she said flatly that there were no blankets on board. Just a terrible terrible red eye."
Pros: "Great attitude of crew. Very pleasant and attentive. Made the best of their way to take care of everything"
Cons: "Might want to look into refurbishment of the aircraft at some point soon. Lots of thing S worn out or not working"
Pros: "My two-year-old and I were assigned seats in different rows. She weighs under 25 pounds I didn’t want to have to buy a ticket for her in the first place. Obviously I couldn’t have her sit in row behind me. She had to sit on my lap anyway so I paid for an extra seat I couldn’t use. Ridiculous"
Pros: "I was on a red eye, upgraded to first, but there was no service almost at all on the flight. It was freezing, yet they had NO blankets or pillows, they brought only a little hummus, never checked in again the entire flight. No breakfast, no coffee, no roll, nothing served. But, no blankets in FIrst? that in itself is a FIRST for me!"
Cons: "No service in first, no blankets, uncomfortable seats on A320. Phone dropped inside the seat, could barely retrieve it from inside the seat."
Pros: "Organized crew, on time service, great entertainment choices (and I know enough to bring my own earphones and my smartphone is ok for watching movies), great to have power outlets at the seats (but not enough room to open a laptop), clean lavatory."
Cons: "I was asked to rate food and not given a “not applicable” choice. The only food included with the ticket I purchased was a few dry cookies. It’s a 5 1/2 hour flight, I pack a lunch and drag it along with me. Airline seating is notoriously very tight with barely enough space to move the legs and feet. Alaska is no better than the others. It’s a wonder more people don’t suffer stroke from blood clots that develop in the veins of immobile leg muscles."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Ran out of food VERY early Late out of the gate, later landing Old Virgin America cramped plane"
Pros: "When we landed"
Cons: "Delays. Pricing , pay for every amenity"
Pros: "Highly recommend premium seating on this flight, 4 extra inches of leg room make a big difference. Delicious food that was decently priced and a large assortment of beverages. Left early and landed early, which was helpful because I had a 44 minute layover between 2 flights."
Pros: "Alaska Air was AWESOME!"
Pros: "Lots of room for bags and legs. The outlet is easy to reach. And there are 3 bathrooms."
Pros: "Nice big aircraft for a comfortable flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "Late departure (and arrival) Apparent equipment issue."
Pros: "3 seats each side of isle. Too cramped for comfort"
Pros: "smooth, quiet flight, as comfortable as a red eye can be in economy. i like that they bring you water and are accessible to give you more whenever you need it."
Cons: "The new seat backs are very uncomfortable to put your head against"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Wish there was a direct non stop flight to SMF from YVR"
Pros: "Small plane and short flight. Not too much to expect other than get there on time which they did"
Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "arrived earlier"
Pros: "I picked that flight because it was the only direct flight that fit my schedule. Wish I could take JetBlue."
Cons: "Seat is so small and uncomfortable. Flight attendant somehow only offered the two guys next to me the whole can of soda but just ignored me. I found it very odd. She had many cans of coke...It's not that I care about a 50 cents of a soda but I felt totally discriminated. I don't want to pull the minority card, but just didn't make sense to me when she did that. I know it's tedious but it really hurt my first experience with this airline. I will avoid flying with them in the future."
Pros: "Got home"
Cons: "Turned around 20" in flight, and board a new plane. Therefore arrived 2 and 1/2 hrs later than scheduled. As recompense they give a $100 discount on next flight, which will probably never be used as they have so few flights from Boston. Practically not a useful thing for me."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Nothing. Our trip was changed without notice."
Cons: "We originally booked our flight back from Maui because it had a 13 hour layover And we were visiting our friends in Seattle for the day for their housewarming party. Well much to our surprise we get to the airport in Maui to leave and by sure luck because we had to get there early for our rentL car return , realized our flight was boarding in 30 minutes. It got bumped up by 4 hours with absolutely no notification. Also our nice long layover that we had purposely planned was now only 4 hours. So not only did we almost miss our first flight but we had to miss our friends party. We were never notified. I checked my spam mail, junk mail, and regular Mail. Alaska airlines did nothing for us as far as compensation for our aggravation. We usually love using kayak but if this is what will be happening from now on we will be taking our business elsewhere."
Pros: "the flight was so short that nothing mattered but it was still a good flight."
Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"
Pros: "Excellent flight crew"
Cons: "The charges on the entertainment ststem using a personal device semmed high compared to other carruers which provide the same service included in the price of the ticket. The hot food choice seems like a nice idea poorly executed."
Pros: "Timeliness of aircraft and the friendliness of staff."
Cons: "Seats too cramp and very little leg room. Could not get comfortable on plane. Seats do not recline for comfort. Minimal food service"
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "I don't particularly care for the cookies they hand out."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and courteous to me. I felt very comfortable and respected."
Cons: "My checked bags were not handled very well. I had some broken items when I reopened them at my destination."
Pros: "Too cold!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable"
Cons: "I have never been asked to leave a plane. They made some outrageous claims with no real reason. Saying I smelled like acohol so that was reason enough to remove me from the plane. I was happy smiling and talking with other people in the row about families. I gave no reason for them to remove me from the flight. Not one time during boarding or waiting at the gate was I talked to about behavior or anything that might be reasons for removal off the plane. Crappy customer services I don't think they handled this very well at all."
Pros: "Customer service was outstanding, plane was comfortable, on time...."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly & professional from boarding to in flight. I had ordered a cheese plate & while my transaction completed-someone further down sold the last one. The lovely flight attendant (didn't get her name-brunette on the 5/9 8:35a from San Diego) refunded me on the spot & offered a tapas instead complimentary. Great customer service!"
Cons: "Seats weren't the most comfortable & in flight movies only available on your personal device or a rented tablet (for $10 I believe)."
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane clean. Took off on time, landed on time. leg room was decent. Seat profile is thinner with a hard foam, not uncomfortable but different, this is what improved the leg room."
Cons: "This was a redeye with 180 or so other people. The guy in front of me had his seat back all flight even when the crew said raise the seat backs for takeoff and landing. Seats were difficult to sleep in, head rest while adjustable is thin and gave no real head support, at the end of the flight my neck felt like it had whiplash. No food, on a 5+ hour flight, it was overnight, but the seat head rests made sleeping difficult."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "lack of leg room"
Pros: "Window seat; frequency of being offered items"
Cons: "Person in seat next to me basically was touching me the entire flight"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful, flew coach so slightly cramped but it was as expected excellent service fit great value."
Pros: "Flights are on time, boarding is reasonably efficient. More people should have to check bags, though. Flight itself was excellent."
Cons: "Have to pay to watch anything on long flight, use one device. Storage bins filled and I had checked my roller to be s good citizen but still no room for my small bag in overheads."
Pros: "The guy that checked us into our flight was very nice and very helpful. He had a great attitude, better than most airlines I've flown."
Cons: "Not impressed. The flight was way oversold and people were practically being begged to bump to a later flight. My girlfriend and I had a short layover and deliberetly purchased seats near the front of the airplane in order to get off quicker and catch our layover. When I checked in online I noticed that our seats were not only changed to the complete rear of the airplane, but we were separated as well. When we got to our final destination our luggage did not make it with us."
Pros: "There was one nice customer service agent that tried to help me"
Cons: "Canceled flight due to flat tire Missed all connections. Arrival 5 hours late. Not ideal after having major surgery"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "They ran out of hot meals."
Cons: "This flight was probably great but I was not on it"
Pros: "Short flight just snacks. Was able to get a seat on standby for an earlier flight cutting my total travel time down by a couple hours. Very helpful gate agents"
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: "Clean and good size sears"
Cons: "Slow boarding, crew tires and it showed, pretzels no nuts,"
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Pros: "Modern plane from ATL to BOS. On board games were a fun distraction."
Cons: "The fact that booking with kayak wouldn't let me pick my seats and traveling with 2 kids under 4 it made it very stressful trying to figure out how we could sit together or even the same end of the plane."
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Cons: "The tsa is worthless"
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Pros: "Very professionals"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Due to bad weather they kept us well informed. One hour late but not their fault."
Cons: "A little chilly in the waiting are."
Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"
Cons: "Smooth and easy"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful. The food was exceptional."
Cons: "The infotainment system was a little spotty."
Cons: "Boarding in LA was. Mess"
Pros: "It was my husband's birthday and the stewardess (red dress, long brown hair) went out of her way to make him feel special by bringing champagne, cookies and even chocolate once we were getting off the plane. I was very touched."
Cons: "The guy next to me was kind of smelly but was very nice."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "No complaints! I had a perfect diet coke and pretzels while I watched tv."
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Pros: "I'm surprise that Delta airline serves free dinner for domestic flight, which is definitely a compliment. I would travel with Delta airline again"
Pros: "Pilot got us back safe through some bad turbulence, the flight was shaky from start to finish. They gave extra snacks, were attentive to any needs. Would definitely trust Delta pilots again. Also with this being a connecting flight, it was nice that the group of five I was in was given an entire row to ourselves."
Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."
Cons: "Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Lots of seat space even in economy, I felt very comfortable and not cramped on my flight. Food was decent and flight attendants were very attentive. My flight was kind of an outlier experience as someone on my flight fell very ill and needed immediate medical attention. The KLM employees on board did a very good job of taking care of the situation and making sure everyone else on board still had a calm flight experience."
Cons: "My connecting flight was scheduled too close to my landing time."
Cons: "No TVs for int'l flight, disorganized and chaotic boarding process, limited snack options"
Pros: "Bulkhead seats - logos legroom"
Cons: "Very long boarding process - security checks and a long walk from connecting flight"
Cons: "No tvs."
Pros: "Entertainment good. Service good."
Cons: "Disembark a disaster with broken jetway"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Very little legroom."
Pros: "Delayed flight so water and snacks distributed before the flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped! Cabin crew not particularly friendly."
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: "Great stewardesses, good food"
Pros: "We had 35 minutes from landing in MSP to takeoff for BOS. We came in on gate C20 and our departure was for C5. The gate person could not confirm the gate so we hailed a vehicle to take us. The driver added 2 more to our cart which slow us down appreciably. We got to the gate and they hadn't started boarding. My wife went to the Ladies Room and I walked over to the desk. The boarding flight was going to LA!! Our flight was going out C11! I had to ask a woman to go into the restroom and yell for my wife to get moving! We made it but I don't know how. Typical Delta!!!!"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was on-time and most often overlooked (but most important) we got there safely."
Cons: "The seat on this 737-800 was uncomfortably narrow. This was likely due to the table-tray being in the seat armrest. I had to remove everything from my side pants pockets and even then was not particularly comfortable. This is particularly annoying because I usually avoid this by flying comfort plus. However, on this itinerary, Delta would not allow me to give them money for Comfort plus, because it was a domestic leg on an itinerary including stops in Asia. Such a baffling policy!?!?"
Pros: "All went well"
Cons: "After a grueling 14 hour flight back to the states from Asia, got notification that my Delta flight was further delayed an additional 3.5 hrs from the layover of 2hrs, so I was at the airport for a good part of the day and did not get home till midnight. Altogether 24+ hrs of no real sleep. To add insult to injury, a Delta representative called and apologized, offering a $100 voucher or gift certificate. Raised expectation that they might actually do the right thing. I then received a Delta email that says "Your day just got better", except there was nothing but ads and enter to bid for things. Overall bad experience when I really needed them to get me home on time."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."
Pros: "They switched me to better seats"
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."
Pros: "Very enjoyable trip."
Cons: "no food. no entertainment"
Pros: "Fast boarding the plane! Great snacks! Great flight attendants."
Cons: "We sat in the plan for 45 minutes before taking off and arrived 20 minutes late."
Cons: "Horrible customer service. One plane was not fit to fly so delayed 30 minutes to get another ready, then after flying 30 minutes, had to return to airport because the plane had mechanical issues. Then after an hour being held without bathrooms at gate outside lounge, we flew and landed 4 hours late."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Also enjoyed the legroom."
Pros: "Flight was good!"
Cons: "Especially international flights do not price basic fares, who travels from USA to Canada without clothes and then you end up charging $39 each way. It’s just totally a scheme. It’s a shameful practice and only spirit airlines and you do this. You guys were one of my favorite but now you are last"
Pros: "Porter is a terrible airline. I was not able to change flights due to a schedule conflict with or without fees. I booked another flight through a different carrier. I will never fly Porter Airlines again. Their customer service is unbelievably poor."
Pros: "Porter airlines is efficient and the customer service is the best I have experienced."
Cons: "I miss the free amenities that they used to offer at the Billy Bishop airport, but the newly renovated airport is nice!"
Cons: "Heads up to US citizens coming in from Canada: customs took 45 minutes, on a week day morning when there were very few of us."
Pros: "Good airline for going. Out of the country and direct flight from Boston"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The beverages that was served"
Cons: "No WiFi!"
Pros: "Quick check in and security. Good choice of on board service."
Cons: "The new US$35/direction checked bag fee is much higher than other airlines on the route, and makes porter the more expensive option. Some of the amenities at ytz (free coffee and drinks) are now gone."
Pros: "Leg room is adequate Seating at the gate is comfortable"
Cons: "I was shocked that my ticket didn’t allow carry on bags and I ended up having to pay 115$ for 2 Carry on bags. The person on check in counter was unpleasant and uncooperative which didn’t help. Very unfortunate situation."
Pros: "The crew was very very helpful. Excellent flight"
Cons: "Justfly.com is awful and I wish kayak would stop sending customers to it. I will no longer use kayak because this is the second time my ticket has ended up being purchased through justfly."
Pros: "1) Snacks and beverage at Toronto airport 2) Very clean and comfortable inside the aircraft"
Cons: "1) I wasn’t allowed to check in online because I’m not an American or Canadian citizen. Never heard of that before on any other airline. 2) Flight delays too often and the notification is sent just an hour before (by then we’ve already checked in!)"
Cons: "late and no apologies"
Pros: "Significant delays"
Cons: "5 hours delay for 1.5 hour flight"
Cons: "Everything - outbound flight was 5+ hrs late and would have been stranded at the airport at 1:30 am. Made other arrangements at another airport. Kayak, justfly and Porter would not refund fares. Hours on the phone, put in WMS less hold. Don’t use kayak - didn’t stand behind product or their customer."
Cons: "Weather delays were compounded by Porter's incompetence at plane maintenance (plane was too hot when it finally arrived), crew scheduling (and then crew timed out) and finally boarding, which was a nightmare as attendants sent irate passengers who had been waiting in an overcrowded lounge for hours back and forth between podium and counter unnecessarily while ignoring protests and the fact that contradictory directions were being given. As a result, I missed my flight to a critical business event - this could have been avoided if Porter was prepared for bad weather on the East Coast (a fairly frequent occurrence) and had good contingency plans in place and customer service reps who actually knew what they were doing and how to respond to changing circumstances and customer frustration."
Cons: "Weather, plane and crew delays. Poor communication."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful with the situation and delay"
Cons: "The seats feel old and have a lot of wear in them. The plane does not seem clean. They joke about the fact that the delays happen often and they update delays very slowly."
Pros: "once we took off it was okay."
Cons: "all the delay due to airport issues, thunderstorms, timing of plan landing slots. could have comped us snacks or something for waiting multiple hours and missing dinner time, didn't get compensated in any way for inconvenience"
Cons: "Every flight was delayed at least 30 minutes and the boarding and deplannaning process was close to a third-world country airline. Terrible."
Cons: "30 minute delay. No notice"
Pros: "Awesome crew and in flight communication and beverages"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Crew is very polite and helpful. The truffles are awesome!"
Cons: "Frequent delays"
Pros: "Bishop airport in Toronto is great. Comfy, small, and super close to downtown - I walked to the airport!"
Pros: "Great crew ... friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."
Pros: "Timeliness & Efficiency."
Cons: "Lack of intetests at the lounge."
Pros: "Once they were up and running, Porter was a great airline. Flight was short so i didn't expect anything fancy on the food menu anyway"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 5 times. Not a great first experience. Had an eerie likeliness of Spirit, which we all know is just not a real airline. not sure if I would fly again if that is the general perception of Porter airlines. I could care less about comfort as long as I get to where I am going on time, which I did not."
Pros: "Got a seat up front didn't have to walk much. after forgetting to pre-boarding they did a good job of getting me on board."
Cons: "Flight was very late. I was in a wheelchair and should have been pre-boarded. Had to wait a long time getting thru immigration."
Pros: "Free espresso in waiting area"
Cons: "Flight delay. Hot plane. Small overhead bins. Dirty plane."
Pros: "My past 4 Porter flights over a few months have had at least 40 minutes of delays. They all also had the annoying pattern of announcing that the delay would be extended a few times, then saying no more delays, then not boarding until after the newest departure time while claiming no more delays. Toronto airport is cute but wifi is pretty bad and hasn't worked at all a few times. Recently gate area has been ridiculously overcrowded, people sitting all over the floor. Free food/drinks is nice but still very limited options and unsurprisingly people make a big mess of the free food area. Overall I prefer a large clean airports where wifi always works well and you can always find a seat for the 30+ minutes you wait for your flight."
Cons: "Wifi Crowded gate Delays Bad communication/dishonesty about delays"
Pros: "Easy and smooth boarding , considerate pleasent service , Nice snacks No entertainment on short 1:40 hour flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "-quick connection and lounge -having real glass to drink out of on the flight is a real treat"
Pros: "Walker's shortbreads in lounge! Pike's Place coffee was tasty."
Cons: "Confusing 'group' transfer from domestic flight to Porter lounge for US flight. Maybe the guide could carry a little sign that says "follow me!""
Pros: "The amazing recovery of my iPhone left in the seat pocket A huge thank you to the finders Helpfull in flight staff and checkin staff"
Cons: "LONG WALK IN AIRPORT FOR CONNECTION"
Cons: "HATED having to take a bus from the plane to the terminal. I had to pee really bad and it took forever. I'm sure there was a reason but it wasn't clear to me, and I was super uncomfortable and unhappy. But I'm not blaming Porter Airlines for that either."
Pros: "The lounge before boarding was very diverse and qas definitely a nice treat. Info about entertainment is irrelevant since these are small planes for short distances. All in all very organized and comfortable airline."
Pros: "Small airport. Easy to find everything. Ferry ride fun. Staff did not seem happy to be at work nor did they smile or acknowledge me. I asked 2 staff questions and was barked at: red line! And was told to get into a line that was non existent outside of security."
Cons: "I asked if I was supposed to leave my luggage in the rack that was just outside of the plane because I saw that's what everyone was doing. I was told it was my choice but that if it didn't fit in the overhead I would have to come back out and put it on the rack. I was very dismayed when I got off the plane to see that I had to wait in the hallway for quite a while until my luggage appeared. It was a real traffic jam of people. I really wish I had put my luggage in the overhead. Also, minutes before boarding we were told to go and verify our passports. It was quite a rush to run to the other end of the room, wait in line and then get to the boarding gate. I barely made it back in time even though I had been waiting there for nearly an hour ."
Pros: "Liked the fact that I flew out of Toronto Islands airport, was fast and easy with complimentary snacks while waiting at the gate. I had an early morning flight and so beat the traffic, as I'm sure that picks up later in the day. Online checkin was easy and simple. I did not have any check-in luggage, only carry-on, suspect that also made it easier. The Porter airlines support call center was very helpful and friendly There were complimentary coffee and snacks at the gate... was a really nice feeling. Liked the waiting area at the gates, comfortable seating. Plane was on time. No issues"
Cons: "I had an early morning flight, so traffic was very light, but suspect that later in the day. So taking a later flight on Porter may be problematic as getting to the airport would be more difficult. The language in the email ticket confirmation made me a little concerned, as it mentioned having to re-confirm the booking and being at the airport at least 3 hours ahead even though the flight time was only 1:05 hours etc. But after calling in to the support center, the concerns were cleared up."
Cons: "Coming back through customs as an American citizen and a member of the United States Military, treated like another scumbag coming back to the US"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "Cozy, friendly staff, free snacks and drinks at gates. A thousand times better than Pearson airport"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Cons: "Trip was cancelled within one hour of boarding"
Cons: "lack of inflight wifi"
Pros: "Love the ease of flying into Billy Bishop, the staff, the complimentary snacks at the airport lounge. All great!"
Cons: "Your pricing now is almost not distinguishable from AC's"
Cons: "It was 30+ mins late and they didn’t keep us updated. Missed my connection"
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "Full flight, so the usual boarding slowness, but the ground and flight crews were very good and made things easy."
Cons: "Boarding. But that’s the reality of travel these days."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Communication as to why we were promoted to premier seats and service."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat space was a bit tight"
Cons: "Little more space and leg room"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The thermal control in the waiting area of the pearson airport before boarding was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Didn’t make my flight"
Cons: "If the app didn’t send me a message saying my flight had been delayed when it was in fact on time."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "Consistencies on bagage claim info, and changes in boarding gates."
Cons: "Inconsistencies, on my way back to montreal from the philippines, i was informed that baggage would be claimed directly to final port of destination but didnt, when i arrived at toronto i had to take my bagage and drop it off again, although my next flight would be with west jet airlines, korean air was not able to communicate well with their airline partners as to bagage claim and changes in boarding gates."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working. I did not have anything to watch my entire 6 hours flight from Toronto to San Jose California. My connecting flight/airline was changed on the day of my flight. Not really a problem as the time was the same."
Pros: "organic bars, hot green tea in real mug, friendly staff"
Cons: "no entertainment or WiFi and seats did not recline."
Cons: "I asked for special Assistance and No records of it"
Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."
Pros: "Crew was funny."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 times, ended up being a 4 hour delay after a delay on our first flight already. No help at terminals until just before flights. Employees seemed spread thin. Need more help."
Pros: "I got the executive treatment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to a tire change. That’s no big deal, but the crew did not accurately keep us updated on the actual loading time in order for me to arrange my pickup upon arrival in Winnipeg."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. Good leg room."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours. There was a change in gates and aircraft. The gate was too small for the amount of people boarding. Families were separated due to the change of aircraft. Few updates of the situation while waiting."
Pros: "very nice."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "Efficient service - boarding and arrival were on time."
Cons: "No crew to load the baggage or guide us out of the terminal. After a day of cancellations and delays for my one flight, my baggage was lost. I felt like notifying us about delays and cancellations could have been handled more efficiently. Also, the staff was not helpful when my baggage was lost"
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "A 2.30 pm flight got in the air at 8 pm. The weather was beautiful at 2.30 and the weather was it turned terrible at around 7. At which point we were skeptical to fly."
Cons: "All my plans were ruined. When we got to Logan, our luggage was missing."
Pros: "Speed of Service"
Cons: "Wish flight attendants were demonstrated more interpersonal skills."
Pros: "Ground staff was very good about keeping us informed."
Cons: "Unfortunate that plane was late arriving - weather problems I expect."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."
Pros: "It was overall ok , but over all disappointing that west jest became such a budget airline."
Cons: "I’m disappointed that west jet became such a budget airline, it used to be my favourite. Now there’s no monitors, you got to use up your own power from devices. I prefer to save my battery when travelling."
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Pros: "Staff on the ground and in the air were great - nice, polite and funny"
Pros: "It was very enjoyable all round."
Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Pros: "The Crew was excelent, WestJet has the best crew, very courteous and helpful unlike disgruntal AA crew. They also have the best price deals available. I highly recommend this airlines. Thanks"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you buy one of their tablets. Unerstandable given the type of fleets they use."
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Pros: "The flight is decently cheap"
Cons: "Everything else is not really pleasant for a long distance travel. I've never felt more uncomfortable in my life during a flight. But i suppose you get what you paid for."
Pros: "Very professional and dilligent staff helping th elderly with utmost care. the flight was clock work on time and well aided by the cabin crew. Overall aces high !!! Keep it flying"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"
Pros: "They were quick and efficient gwttong everyone ready for a on time depature and we actually arrived a bit early too."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."
Cons: "theres a problem with the connecting flight so we had to run threw few terminals to board and almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Plus seats reasonable price and very comfortable"
Cons: "No lounge access"
Cons: "1h late departure, but we arrived at the expected time. Seats were not very confortable, but everyone had an individual tv. We bought a flight Montreal-Mexico-Panama City, but for some reasons, it was impossible to get boarding passes for the second part of this flight... We had to check-in again in Mexico city."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, very helpful, and professional!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The food was bland. It doesn't have to be a five course meal, but something with a little more taste."
Pros: "The lunch was good, the team was nice and the flight went well!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made my mom feel welcomed and special."
Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "Horrible and first flight was 1h45min late which made me miss my connecting flight. The transit airport was also a horrible experience to spend many endless hours in."
Pros: "I was afraid I my not be able to recline my chair but thankfully it worked, i was so much more confortable than the firts flight."
Cons: "to much use of plastic for the food. The planet is full of plastic. By the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. AEROMEXICO can do something about it, be part of the solution, just by changing the cups to paper cups and the forks,spoons and knifes to reusable ones."
Pros: "the crew was very gentle."
Cons: "I could not get my chair in a more confortable position to sleep, it did not work. Because of that my 6 hour and a half trip was very long and unconfortable and i ended up with pain in my lower back."
Cons: "In the counter people were rude (as always) and the first guy that helped us didnt found us. A lot of time wasting and not much staff to check-in."
Cons: "I lost days without my luggage and.trying to get it!!!"
Pros: "They are on tume, corteoyse, provide nice food and drinks, and I feel safe and well-cared-for in the air."
Pros: "Perfectly on time both ways!"
Cons: "Crew was less than friendly"
Pros: "All other things working including air above my seat which was needed for a long flight."
Cons: "It was very frustrating to have WiFi available but not working the entire trip!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and clean lots of selections for entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding delay and having to go from terminal to bus and then Wait again and thenwalk with your bag up the stairs onto the plane"
Cons: "I got kicked off my return flight, and had to buy an expensive new flight for the next day."
Pros: "the entertainment system isn't bad and you get a free headset"
Cons: "if you choose a seat in the last row, they will move you so that the crew can take breaks there and relax. I think its totally unprofessional to see crew eating food from first class right next to you, while you didn't even get a meal choice because you were in the last row. Also, some of them heat up their personal food which makes the cabin smell. If you had a mediocre pasta dish because there was no chicken left and then you start smelling chicken after, it's really not nice."
Pros: "we flew clase premier and really enjoyed it. there was cheese and wine to start, then a chicken breast with potatoes along with a courgette salad and then asparagus on the side. the movie selection was good, the seats were comfortable... we were very happy with it."
Pros: "ease, no delays, friendly staff, free movies and especially getting treated to a meal on the flight! Wonderful!"
Cons: "Paying an extra $25 per flight to book our seats in advance!! :("
Cons: "Aeromexico did not offer alternative accomodating flights until I waited about 40 mins to take to a supervisor/manager. Then the agent I was dealing with suddenly called herself the supervisor. Only then she was able to put me on a 7am flight with 2 additional stops to make it home in the evening."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, there was variety in the entertainment options, and there was a vegetarian food option (pasta) available without having to have requested it, which I always appreciate."
Cons: "I think the first piece of checked luggage should be included in the price of the flight."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning the whole flight. It was warm, this have never happened before."
Cons: "My husband’s wheelchair was returned to us bent and disassembled. The crew at Logan and the airline ground crew could see us struggling to put it back together and then to fix it but offered absolutely no help until the very end, when we had already gotten the chair to a workable state and help was no longer needed. The crew in Mexico was not helpful upon boarding either, I had to take my husband down the ramp because there was no one to help us. We had no such problems in our outgoing flights so were surprised at the lack of care and utter disinterest on the way back."
Cons: "The gogoinflight internet service didn't work, despite following instructions provided. I was able to connect to wifi, but the server would not respond. As a result, I was not able to complete the work I needed to do."
Pros: "Good legroom. Staff, food, boarding. Landed ahead of expected time."
Cons: "The temperature varied rather; hot on the ground cold over the arctic. One toilet door was faulty. The entertainment system occasionally played up."
Pros: "Good service and good price"
Pros: "Puntuality and service"
Pros: "Aeromexico's fare was competitive, and they got me to my destination on time."
Cons: "Aeromexico's online check in system needs a total revamp. Trying to check in online was a nightmare. I eventually gave up. Also, they charge extra for checked luggage, like most airlines today. What's different is that they make it really difficult to pay for your bag. After I waited in line to check in and the agent confirmed my reservation, I was sent across the concourse to a separate Aeromexico office to pay for my bag, rather than simply paying at the check in desk. I was lucky I had the extra time to make it to the gate to catch my flight."
Pros: "nice and friendly"
Cons: "not enough English speakers to help around"
Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "late boarding"
Cons: "Kayak diverted me to FlightNetwork, which charged me for the ticket but did not provide the ticket. I am seeking a refund."
Cons: "Gate was changed before bording, gates closed before plane departure time regardless of not all passengers present. Missed the flight and Aeromexico made us pay to grab another flight while it was Aeromexico personel that refused to allow us in even though it was not yet departure time and said plane doors were closed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, both at the airport and in the air. It was nice to have meals served, even on the very short flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport to find that they had overbooked the plane and our family's 4 seats were in jeopardy. We had to wait until they had processed everyone else in line, even though we had gotten there first, because either they were in the "sky priority" line or because maybe they had pre-bought their seat assignments. After a tense 20 minutes of waiting, they closed the flight and let us have our seats. Then, at the gate, they confiscated two of our most important carry on bags and checked them because they said that children are not allowed a carry on item -- despite paying full freight for their seats! It was very nerve-wracking at our arrival destinations as these two items were not padlocked and were the very last to come on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "Good flight, excelent schedule"
Cons: "Flight Over sold (20 people)."
Pros: "All the movies And tv shows"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable chairs and a long boarding process"
Cons: "As all the comment I have put, the crew occupied the front passenger baggage space, that really hurt the feeling of the passenger because people seems bring a lot off baggage from Mexico. So please think about the passenger in the first place! The other bad experience is when I arrive Austin my baggage didn't come out as priority baggage! I need to wait almost 20min which cause me more time to go though custom."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"
Cons: "No veg option in food menu"
Cons: "Confort, FOOD"
Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."
Pros: "First class"
Cons: "Seats no that comfortable"
Pros: "Meals provided on plane. TV on every seat, flight crew very good"
Cons: "Waited from scheduled boarding to when the flight was cancelled- 3 hours and then little help from Aero Mexico to rebook to final destination in a reasonable time. Was promised a full refund of cancelled booking with Aero Mexico and as of 4/17- 0"
Pros: "I like the non stop flight."
Cons: "I honestly don't see the point in having so many terminals to check in. I had my reservation code I was even able to pay for my bag and wouldn't print out the boarding pass so I had to go to the assistance counter. There was one one person helping out with this issue and took me close to 30 mins to be able to get a boarding pass"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Able to take off and land in Boston in poor weather (snow). On time."
Pros: "Convenience Service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time. Cockpit crew did amazing job landing in windy conditions. Thanks to all"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Nice little meal and complimentary tequila, and nice flight crew."
Cons: "I asked the agent to find us seats with Legroom as i am over 6'2 and mostly legs. he charged us $40 extra per ticket. the seat #'s were 10 E and F so we assumed it was a comfort plus seat.. NOPE! knees against the sat in front of me.. in the CENTER of a 9 seat row. the flight was sold out.. now place to Move.. FURIOUS and feeling ripped off!"
