Cons: "At Xian Xiangyang Airport, I was asked to provid a address. They did not know how which is street name and which is city name. I taught them.

Pros: "great crew"
Cons: "3-4 hours flying and you just have cookies ? Coffee ? And the tablets to watch movies for real $30 bucks come on guys"
Cons: "The flights were fine, but I will never fly Alaska to Minneapolis and transfer to Iceland Air again. Transferring from the Main Terminal to the HumphRey Terminal was a huge, grossly unpleasant inconvenience. Fly direct, use a carrier that connects at the Humphrey terminal, but by all means do not connect with Iceland Air using Alaska in Minneapolis."
Pros: "My Flight was on time"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Comfortable and service"
Pros: "After a few years of being just shy of hitting annual MVP status I finally made it. To mark te occasion, Alaska Airlines bumped me up to first clas...my first real time ever.

From the full breakfast, great coffee and roasted, warm nuts...though very tired, I truly appreciated the recognition. Thanks!"
Pros: "Leg room in premium"
Cons: "No free food or entertainment"
Cons: "The food is just terrible and we sat in first class. There was an only one choice and if you're a vegetarian, forget it, you won't be eating. The choice was a chicken salad that had a fishy taste. Your choices are better if you purchase a meal."
Pros: "Comfortable flight did not look old like Sun Country haha. Clean seats and very friendly attendants."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff, clean plan, excellent service"
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Was a nightmare at Seattle to board for Minneapolis. Was delayed, didn't call for boarding and crew looked annoyed the whole time. Not the type of service I expect for the price I pay."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment options. Grew was pleasant and helpful. There was leg room!"
Pros: "Free movies!"
Cons: "Not enough time to finish the movie"
Pros: "The plane was modern and comfortable, including the adjustable side wings on the headrests. In flight free wifi and entertainment was a wonderdul way to pass the time. Crew was so friendly. Flights on time and luggage retrieval was very speedy."

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: "Took almost half an hour for bags to START coming. Grandma had to do 3 loops picking me up at airport"
Pros: "Great service friendly! Nice roomy seats. Clean. Great snacks and snack purchase boxes."
Cons: "2 seats, aisle, and two seats was hard with me and 2 kids but liked the space."
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: "Great costumer service and friendly and I will definitely by from this airline again."
Cons: "Offer free entertainment via wifi on flight, but will not work with Kindle or Nook devices."
Cons: "NOISY, OBNOXIOUS OUT OF CONTROL CHILD IN BACK OF ME"
Cons: "Only thing was we had to wait longer than 20 min for our luggage in mpls which was guarenteed. Will I get $25 gift card for future use. Will use AA again when I get the chance."
Cons: "They changed the departure gate 3 times and I missed my flight to MSP. I had to pay 600usd or a flight 13 hours later, spend the night in the airport and rearrange transport from MSP to my home in Duluth. I wonder if I could get reimbursed for the 600usd due to the irregularities in changing the departure gate so often; it caused me to miss the flight.."
Cons: "One hour delay was terrible"
Pros: "The attindent kept people seated till we stopped"
Cons: "The seats wouldn't recline."
Pros: "This was my 1st flying w/Alaska and the experience was wonderful. Boarding was fast and efficient, the flight attendants were courteous, and we arrived ahead of schedule. I'll fly sith Alaska whenever possible."
"There was a lady pilot. She helped an older lady get on and off the plane and she helped me with my crabby children get off the plane. It meant the world to me. One of the flight attendants was berating a family in front of me about the 2 year old child’s inability/willingness to wear a mask. I am all for wearing masks, but a little child who doesn’t understand why it’s important to wear a mask and is melting down - is it really that important. I understand the need to follow policy’s."
"I loved the hospitality of the crew, they were a great crew. What I didn’t like was how the airport I was going to be in for a layover closed down due to it raining in the area. I missed my connecting flight, and got put on a flight that departed 8 hours from the time I arrived to the airport. I also have no news on where my luggage is."

Pros: "On time and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew were great. Cookie was good. Seat was comfy to sit in upright."
Cons: "Leg room was poor, flight was overcrowded, seatback wouldn't recline, there simply isn't enough width to the seats in the middle of each row. This should be a perk to balance the perk of a window on one side and extra leg room in the aisle on the other."
Pros: "The staff were lovely."
Cons: "no covid-19 precautions were taken. It was a packed airplane didn't feel comfortable"
Pros: "Plane was new and equipped"

Pros: "I had been travelling for 2 days with a bad back & everyone was so helpful with my situation."
Pros: "Crew was amazing once again. Friendly and engaging."
Cons: "Atlanta concourse and gates need more work for cleanliness! This is just respecting your customers safety and wellbeing. Unfortunately having customers not being respectful with how they leave the area they were sitting a mess can make your jobs that much more challenging. Trash cans are not far away!!!"

Cons: "No leg room on this plane"
Cons: "Loved it!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"

Cons: "I didn't flight because I was tested Covid-19 positive ! I am waiting for AeroMexico to contact me to get and flight back to Minneapolis !"

Cons: "Nothing I enjoy delta"
Cons: "This was a great short flight."
Pros: "Great crew."

Cons: "There was a lot of empty space on the plane I wish they would’ve spaced passengers out evenly."
Cons: "I fly regular this was an excellent flight"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Late pickup, then no gate at stopover causing is to miss our flight as we sat on the tarmac. Got on next flight, 5 hours later, the literal last row of the plane right in front of the bathroom, you know, those seats that don't recline? Travelling with a cranky two year old, made pains to select seats for maximum child comfort and it all flew out the window. Arrived at destination and sat, again, waiting for a gate. Signed up for sky miles previously based on good experiences, but this was one lane thing after another. Advice? Don't act like you're doing me a favor when asking people to check bags cause then it's "free"."
Cons: "After waiting patiently through a 3 hour delay we were inbound to Minneapolis. We were set to arrive at 9:45 pm and there were multiple 10 pm connections. Delta flew into the furthest gate away, didn't communicate with the connecting flights to give it 5 more minutes and didn't have transportation waiting to bring us top our connections. After ruining across the entire length of the MSP concourse I arrived at 9:58 only to be told they already left. Worst communication I've ever seen. Delta should be ashamed."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly service"
Pros: "With my little boy the seats were so uncomfortable cause of the engine. But the rest was great."
Cons: "Great crew this time."
Pros: "Seats were too cramped up, legroom was a problem. A device was under the seat was cramping the leg room. The entertainment selection was very very poor for a long flight."
Cons: "Better entertainment selection."
Pros: "Very good customer service on flight. Love the way they treat their customers."
Cons: "Was surprised by the $60 fee to check in a bag. I know i bought this through kayak, but it would have been nice to have told that up front, and even further, if they had let me check 1 bag for free like everyone else."
Pros: "Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system."
Cons: "Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights."
Pros: "My luggage never arrived in Munich"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, we had blankets and pillows and that was super comfortable."
Pros: "The Crew was very good. I was with my 84 year old father.And they handled his needs very well ."

Pros: "Good entertainment system. Nice crew."
Cons: "Nothing specially. They run out of lunch choices very early"
Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Cons: "The four hour delay which made me miss my conecting flight causing me to spend an entire day at the airport waiting for a available flight making me miss a portion of the travel tour I booked"
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."
Pros: "Flight info from Kayak was excellent and up-to-date, more so than the airlines."
Cons: "Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful."
Pros: "There was an issue with my ticket, so they were kind enough to upgrade me AND my husband to business class for the flight. Absolutely my favorite airline for their superb service"
Pros: "Air qualtiy, room, cabin attendants, food were all very good."
Pros: "great airport and ease of check in and quickness on boarding flight."
Cons: "boarding everyone all at once creates long unnecessary lines when staggered boarding would help"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The food was not that great"
Pros: "Good crew, liked the food and service. Better aircraft interior."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, lines weren't well controlled. Ground crew needs better training in being proactive, assertive, communicate better with tired passengers who have had to wait for 5hours in the very staid, and outdated Frankfort airport. Same problems with the headsets."
Pros: "Plane confitions, food. Srvice"
Cons: "Seats are still uncomfortable le on Economy class."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight. Flight crew was amazing. Comfortable seats and lighting for an overnight flight. Food was good and stuffing."
Cons: "Headsets were collected half hour before landing (minor issue). Except for the recommendations for this flight, movie highlights were well hidden in the entertainment system."
Pros: "The food,Entertainment,was good boarding was awfull changed the terminal 2 times 55-60 min late, one of the crew member was rude."
Cons: "For a transatlantic flight, boarding was one mass stampede, seats were hard as a rock, tight, media "touch" screen had to be punched to work, worst selection of entertainment film & TV show options I can remember for an overseas flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, they said due to weather, but would not let me off the plane to make other arrangements. Terrible customer service by partner airline, United. The airline did NOTHING to help me out."

Cons: "Missing assigned flight (see previous flight comments), lack of crew service"
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."

Pros: "The flight staff was excellent!"
Pros: "flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services."
Cons: "The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen."
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat between two fellow passengers who were large individuals. For a flight duration of over ten hours, it was terrible to repeatedly have to negotiate space with them as they were spilling into my chair space. I also had to insist they not extend their legs into my foot well."
Pros: "Nothing really. Seats are very uncomfortable, crumbled together with little space. Food quality is poor, selection of movies are very limited, tv screens are old, outdated screens. Poor selection of alcohol drinks, coffee is very poor. To be short, Typical american airline like delta or american airline with nothing good or special for transcontenintal flights. Does not allow 2nd luggage to check in without fee. For $1000 ticket I would expect more. There are a lot of companies who provide much better service for international flights: like Virgin Atlantic, British airways, Aeroflot, etc. I don't even want to mention Asian and Gulf company with much superior service. Boarding is nightmare, they make you stand for half an hour to board! Total rip off!!!"
Cons: "Stuardess and stuards were nice but nothing Else worth to mentioned. Quality of service poor to average at best."
Pros: "It was UA. Not Lufthansa."
Pros: "Thai chicken dinner was good"
Cons: "Cold breakfast sandwich. It said on the package it was "oven able", the spread was rock hard, bread hard, would have been better warmed up. Leg room is tight"
Pros: "Great plane Great food Great movies"
Pros: "The staff was not friendly at all. For international flight, especially long ones the seats should be able to go back further and not feel like a board, the seats were uncomfortable and small. The area between first class and the back of the plane had air issues, and I was sweating and so hot it woke me up, so on a 10 hour flight I got 1 hour of sleep. Ruined my first day of vacation."
Cons: "Everything was aweful except for the movie selections."
Cons: "My tv screen stopped responding 6 hours into the flight so that I could not watch it for the remaining 2.5 hours"
Pros: "The agent at the counter was very very helpful and accommodated us to an earlier flight. That saved us lot of time."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating (a first for me) they really did an outstanding job to make sure we were comfortable...they seemed to be actually enjoying what they were doing :) The food tasted amazing and was plenty..this is also a first for me, I had never said that the food on a flight was good before. The crew walked around the cabin many time throughout the long flight with drinks on their trays (not just the usual drink service) which was much appreciated. Overall they get a 10 from me! This was my first time flying with Lufthansa. I will most definitely fly with them again and recommend to all my friends."
Cons: "the selection of movies could have been a bit better. Although much to choose from such as tv shows etc., more recent movies would have been a plus."
Pros: "Better than my other Lufthansa flight m, which was canceled, or the SA legs because those planes were old."
Cons: "Everything else about buying the ticket with Kayak. Canceled flights and lost luggage with Zero help from Kayak. Kayak didn't even answer customer service lines when I rang for 2 hours in one go."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "Lufthansa gave us the wrong departure time missed our flight and lost 2 days of our vacation. Didn't get any compensation Except a we will try to get you on another flight at no additional cost. Hmmm for your mistake you act like your doing me a favor! Got yelled at by the rep on the phone I had to tell them to calm down I'm the one stuck in a place I don't know with my family waiting for me in another country. NEVER AGAIN!! Sorry that was horrible service!!!!"
Cons: "I had ordered muslim meal but was served vegetarian (meatless) meal instead. Muslim meals can be served with halal beef,chicken, mutton or fish / seafood. Food served was substandard and tasteless."
Pros: "Everything is excellent."
Cons: "As mentioned above."
Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"
"Really different experience sitting in business! Comfortable and great service."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "when you enter Canada and then travel through YVR for another flight it is a total waste. Not the fault of the airline but the way they do things with security"
Cons: "i would love to seat beside passenger who doesn’t snore bery loud."
Pros: "Fast efficient process through security. Well labeled and helpful airport staff. Plane wasn’t very full. Had a row to myself which was great. Entertainment available on smartphone, iPad or lap top."
Cons: "Really fast connection. 20 minutes from landing from LAX to clear customs and find connection before boarding call. Not much menu options for purchase and too quick a connection to buy anything. Luckily I travel with snacks."
Pros: "Casual attitude."
Cons: "better food option than a few dusty pretzels and a thimble of water."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew, plenty of leg room as well."
Pros: "Crew was nice.seats and storage better"
Cons: "Food choices too small, nothing hot, way to expensive"
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Cons: "very poor customer service boarding and in flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The night skyline from above as you fly into LAX is simply awe inspiring with the miles and miles of lights everywhere you look. Quick flight and no hassles."
Cons: "The 3 rows of clubs seats ahead me were catered to quite well, but maybe a current dividing that and economy is necessary so you don’t feel so 2nd class."
Pros: "The flight didn’t get cancelled. We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because it came from Toronto and it needed to be cleaned."
Pros: "The legroom in economy was good. The staff were very pleasant and they even tried to comfort/distract a crying toddler."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours which meant that it didn't arrive in Toronto until 2:40am, this made it difficult for being picked up. I wasn't aware that this was a basic ticket (I bought it through 3rd party website) which meant that I couldn't prebook my seat. After checkin online and paying for the seat it also meant that the seat couldn't be changed even though there were several available seats. There were no entertainment centres at each seat which was also a real surprise. I didn't have the Westjet app therefore I couldn't have access to the movies as I didn't want to have to pay for internet."
Pros: "On time, free coffee, free pretzels"
Cons: "Going home."
Cons: "Super Cold airplane and it’s not the only west Ket that was freezing. the crew kept skipping my row for drinks for some reason. the landing was rough."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, friendly Westjet crew as always."
Cons: "Tiny TV screens, no real food, seat cushion was so compacted it was uncomfortable."
Pros: "We took off on time and landed a little early. Crew were very nice. I couldn’t judge the entertainment as I didn’t have iPad with me to connect to the wi-fi and watch movie. Plenty of snacks. Worth the cost of the flight."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited to what was being broadcast on regular cable channels. No movies or on demand content were available. Assigned seats were different than what was reserved during booking."
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"
Pros: "The crew were very amiable and one member in particular was quite funny during the seat belt demonstration. First one I've paid attention to the entire time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold and seats were quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Pros: "WestJet’s checkin online system is very quick, which save a lot of time. It’s so much better than air Canada in any aspects"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in the plane"
Cons: "They used the rough air condition story to hip us out of full service, The conditions were fine . I bought the plus and did that because of a food option. They ripped me off Thanks Bryan ELLIOTT Previous flyer Lost my trust"
Pros: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."
Pros: "It was a quiet flight. Quick loading. Got to sit with my friends."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Less leg space, price of bags to high, too many people bring on over-sized carry on taking up all the overhead bins. No entertainment options for flight"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in the plane for 4 hours when 20 minutes into the delay the flight attendants knew they weren't going to be able to fly with us, and instead of cancelling the flight 20 minutes into the delay we sat on the plane for 4 hours while the crew knew we were not going to take off. There were a handful of infants and children (my 10 month old nephew included) and for the crew to keep the passengers on the plane for 4 hours when they knew the flight was going to be cancelled is unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew ok."
Cons: "Was told need to fix my ticket from Bangkok. So after waiting over an hour to get ticket fixed, found out didn't need to. Then a rush through security . Lucky Westjet flight delayed (usual) And made flight by running to gate. Then get to sit on plane for an hour. AGAIN. Two flights on Westjet and two delayed and two sat in the plane an hour. First time missed my connecting to Hong Kong and Bangkok. I know nothing perfect, but this seems to be the norm. Next time will try to find someone else to fly with."
Pros: "No much.."
Cons: "To start.. due to your company combining two out going Toronto flights in Vancouver and then being late off the ground in Vancouver because if that we missed our connecting flight in Toronto to Ottawa. This in turn made us miss a very important appointment in Ottawa. I’m sure the company loves that they saved money by combining those flights however you flunked the test with me. All the corporate could care less about me missing my flight after they look at the bottom line but I will be taking my $1600 plus money elsewhere in the future because of the aggravation, frustration and I don’t care attitude that your company has provided me. I’ll I want to do is get back to Vancouver in my return flight hopefully put most likely on time with my two girls and forget that your company does exists. Thanks for the headaches and goodbye.."
Pros: "crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Westjetconnect (the plane's Wi-Fi) was down, so there was no means for entertainment on the plane."
Pros: "Hannah was a lovely accommodating woman thourghly enjoyed her service, i slept the whole way to Prince George. Crew was welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "Didnt know i bought west jet plus seats. Enjoyed my service though. May think of buying plus again some time soon on one of my up comming trips"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to start at 10:20, but was delayed for at least 30 with no updates. In fact, they were still showing the flight as leaving on time up until the last second, which is not ok. Gotta keep the passengers updated folks!"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "I traveled from Vancouver to Edmonton today on WS 320 and one of my luggage was delayed. I had to wait through many phone call queues to get in contact with an agent and none of them were very useful. I was informed that my baggage would arrive in Edmonton at 5pm and be contacted to arrange delivery options but I had not heard anything from them and it is already past 8pm. I had to stay at home to wait for the phone call which resulted me in canceling my evening plans. The luggage contains frozen home made goods and various food items I brought back from my recent trip to Taiwan. With the food not being in a freezer for over 12 hours at this point they've likely all gone bad. I am extremely displeased with the bagging service especially when I had PAID to get my bags checked. I was told that packing food in checked bags comes with a risk and is a game but everything in life is a risk and I find that excuse from an agent very unacceptable. I am also very upset that WestJet does not offer compensation for food damages because the foods in my luggage are definitely worth over $200 and some are not obtainable in Canada."
Pros: "Flight was delayed hours. Met the most amazing man on the flight ahead of me to Calgary. He waited at the airport for my flight to land. Sometimes delays are just meant to be. Lots of commuting travel in our future..."
Pros: "Honestly, I slept on my flight so I miss all the perks. I’d assume everything was fine since they let me sleep. They also let me board early since my foot was in a cast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but not by much."
Cons: "I dislike that westjet tried to get me to pay for my seats when I initially bought the ticket, only to discover later that the seats are free if I choose them at check in. I didn’t pay the seat charge but there is a breach of trust in them trying to con me that makes me not want to fly with them again."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "As always, the staff and crew were great. Left on time, arrived on time they go their best to deal with the shortcomings of the company."
Cons: "The entertainment system (or lack thereof...) not nearly enough iPads to rent and it never works on laptops."
Pros: "Staff were so friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The breezy, confident preflight announcements of the crew, including (from the Captain) "We are flying into Kelowna today, where the weather is always awesome even though it is a bit overcast and 5 degrees C..." and from the flight attendant on landing, "We have arrived in Kelowna. If you live here--Lucky You! You are almost home! And if you don't live here, welcome to the Okanagan! We hope you enjoy your stay." I was only disappointed that the sentence including 'lucky you' was not included in the French translation. C'est d'hommage..."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. There was no delay in any areas."
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Pros: "Crew were really nice and good entertainment."
Cons: "Paying for food and alcohol was a bit of a downer."
Pros: "I had never heard of WestJet and only booked the flight because it was the least expensive ticket I could find. I was shocked when I was given my boarding pass because I got a first class seat. A comfortable seat is such a blessing on an overnight flight because you can sleep fairly comfortably. Also, the food and especially the wine were excellent. The flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend WestJet to anyone."
"Check-in was a nightmare. At least half the self-serve kiosks were out of printer paper so were out of service. It was chaos. No one was directing traffic, so you had to hope you were in the right line. We finally got to a kiosk and checked in, and printed one bag tag for checked baggage. We were in line to drop off the checked bag, and the lady working that station just walked away and didn’t come back. After we waited a bit, another person in line went to ask at the nearby counter if the bag check person was coming back, and she wasn’t, so we had to find a new line and wait all over again. Once we got our bag dropped off and our tickets, the rest was easy. The security line went quickly, and the terminal was clean and nice. Our flight was great and the flight crew was excellent. I think if someone had kept up with the kiosk printers, a lot of the check-in headaches and stress would have been solved."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "We were packed in during coronavirus. I am never flying American again. Profits over health"
Cons: "Made it a smaller flight. It was a lot of people on the plane! We could not practice social distancing"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "Crew was professional and accommodating, everything went smooth and quickly"
Cons: "App continued to crash. Couldnt watch movies."
Pros: "The was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty unfriendly."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow and we were director the wrong carousel."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Cons: "MY LUGGAGE GOT TRANSFERED TO CHICAGO INSTEAD OF MINNEAPOLIS IN WASHINGTON"
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Very comfortable, affordable, nice staff! On time. Will fly AA again."
Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"
Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."
Pros: "Crew; snacks are okay, but could be better."
Cons: "Coffee is always burnt; overhead compartments too small; too little space for legs."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and provided good service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Boarding process could be improved. Seems some people board out of sequence and it screws up the process of stowing luggage and getting to your assigned seat. These same people bring in large over sized bags that will not fit in the above compartment or underneath the seat. Charging these individuals for these violations would deter them from engaging in this behavior. You might also want to add to your instructions how to disembark the plane, some individuals think their schedule is more important and rush up the isle in front of others who are trying to get their carry on luggage from the overhead compartment. Losers!!"
Cons: "I find this fairly serious! All people were boarded on the plane In a timely manor. We were then informed that one flight attendant had not made to the flight and we were to wait until the flight attendant arrived. We waited over 20 minutes for the employee to arrive to work rather late. This put out over 200 people for one irresponsible employee. In my business that employee would of been fired unless there was a very serious reason. So a full plane of passengers were inconvienced as well as many people that were helping the passengers what maybe 300 + for one employee! Doesn't make sense!"
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."
Pros: "I found this flight to be very efficient and the crew very professional and friendly. After a previous 15 hour flight I was very tired and this flight was a welcome ending to my journey."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "More spacious seating."
Cons: "All ofd the overhead bin carry on luggage left no room atg all by the time we boarded So hence the leg room was very crowded. When will the airlines stop the ridiculous over use and abuse of carry on unchecked bags?"
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "Why because my flight was delayed did I get moved to the last boarding group???? I was group 2 on my original flight... I feel as though I should've kept that status. Subsequently... I was forced to check my roll on carry-on. I also was forced to wait at baggage claim in msp. I purposely traveled with carry-on items to avoid this issue! Not happy..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Uneventful, except for a malfunctioning getaway in MSP which caused a very brief delay."
Pros: "Hospitality, service, flight, and crew!"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."
Cons: "Two hour delay due to mechanical issue was a showstopper."
Cons: "My flight was canceled."
