Pros: "Seats are comfortable"
Cons: "Shouldn’t have to pay for snacks on trans US flight. And didn’t have entertainment system at dear, had to use phone, tablet"
Pros: "Flight was safe"
Cons: "I was not given a seat until about 10 minutes before boarding despite having arrived hours early; the flight was delayed, I was not able to charge my phone despite there being a USB outlet on the seat back (it didn’t work somehow), and no snacks except a cookie"
Pros: "The new seats are great - outlets and usb ports that actually work and seats that are comfortable. While I like having the entertainment screens provided, since I had a nice device to watch films, it was very pleasant. A couple of good films were available."
Cons: "I don't understand why the people who get seats in the rear of the plane have to board last. Not only do they have the discomfort of waiting to get on the plane and sitting in the back, but there is no room for carry on luggage by the time they get on. It seems like a double whammy."
Pros: "Quick, efficient, left on time and landed early. Seamless transitions and systems."
Cons: "Food/beverages are overpriced."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat. Received a middle seat on the day of the flight."
Cons: "I was not notified that my card was declined and this caused a ton of delays"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seats were comfortable. Premium class has lots of legroom."
Cons: "The 737-800 restrooms are tiny and cramped. The landing in Boston was a jolt."
Cons: "What have been nice if I was told that seat availability was nonexistent. I tried checking in each day without any information such as give it up you suck and you’re going to get the worst seed no better how much you try to avoid it…"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew."
Cons: "Very late in departure from Victoria. Long long delay in receiving oversize baggage. Incorrect directions by airport employees in Seattle, resulting in wrong floor, rescreening. But very helpful Alaska enployees to assist in unscrambling."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "We had a delay in departure"
Cons: "The flight was oversold and my husband did not have a seat assignment. The desk agent was helpful and was able to put us together"
Pros: "We left on time and arrived early with a smooth landing"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, almost no turbulence, pleasant and attentive staff, luckily had an extra seat so able to relax"
Cons: "Zipper pulls were broken on piece of checked baggage. Hard to imagine how this could have happened!"
Pros: "Would have been a great flight overall except...."
Cons: "Three flight attendants were socializing loudly to the point that it disrupted us from sleeping on an overnight flight. We had to ask THEM to keep it down. You’d think it would be the other way around on a red eye. Even after that they keep blabbering at the top of their voices! Surprised how inconsiderate they were. And yet, despite their gift of gab, they couldn’t make coherent announcements over the speaker. Food has two stars only because there was nothing to rate."
Pros: "I was so impressed with the genuine kindness and caring of the crew."
Pros: "TV monitors for every seat was great. The selections were good and varied."
Cons: "We sat in the back of the cabin and the two female flight attendants were talking during the whole 6-hour, red eye flight. Hard to sleep and hard to read to pass the time. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
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: "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."
Cons: "The seats are somewhat comfortable. They don’t have TV screens at each seat, but they do provide them for $10 or you can stream free TV or movies for free thru the Gogo app. Not bad, but would have rather had a screen"
Pros: "On time--early even. Planes seemed newer and cleaner than other airlines we usually fly. Friendly attendants. Very fast baggage claim. Despite it being more of a pain to get in and out ofBoston (vs. Manchester), we would fly them again."
Cons: "Boarding seems to take longer than other airlines."
Pros: "Short time to wait for my flight to Panama"
Cons: "To small, person seat next to me was to tall can't very fits"
Pros: "Power outlets, free entertainment, staff"
Cons: "Very full flight"
Pros: "The flight departure was prompt, and it was a very smooth flight overall! We got in earlier than expected as well."
Cons: "wished the seats leaned back a bit more, especially on a red eye"
Pros: "Left on time arrived early. No drama!"
Pros: "I missed my flight, but staff in Seattle helped me get on the next one with minimal fuss. Not sure if this is always the case, but very pleased with a situation that could have been very stressful."
Pros: "Movies on devices, free internet for t-mobile customers, friendly crew, USB chargers."

Pros: "From booking to the actual flight everyone made the process easy."

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"
Cons: "Should announce to download Gogo entertainment app before we get on the plane!"

Cons: "Worst airplane! No room at all!!! Flying year round and to date one of the most uncomfortable flights"
Pros: "Nice ppl and comfortable plane, great service all around"
Cons: "Passenger in window seat took 11/2 seats. Flight was full so there was no sense complaining Very uncomfortable on a 5 hour 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."
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."
Cons: "I reach at airport on time and report at customer service but it was for my surprise to to hear from the counter person that I was late and my flight is gone (though I saw same flight was there after about half an hour). Then they put me on later flight and charged me $25 for that. When I appealed the counter lady said "$25 is better otherwise you would have to pay $125.""
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: "No surprises except one non-flight related detail. On my way to Seattle, they lost my bag. They took down the details and told me that they would pay for any necessary items. The bag was delivered the next day. On my return flight, I stopped by the baggage desk with the receipts. I figured that they would mail me the check. Instead, they cut me a check right there and then."
Cons: "Nothing really. Usual boarding procedure, usual on plane routine, usual on time landing."
Pros: "Customer service was outstanding, plane was comfortable, on time...."
Pros: "Friendly attendant helped me get seats with my daughter together. Everyone was very nice and polite."

Pros: "The available movies were pretty good."
Cons: "The crew member serving the food was way too slow."

Cons: "Flight left 54 minutes late."
Cons: "One hour delay on plane. Over weight. Hot plane. Uncomfortable"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 4 times. We then sat on the runway for an extra 45 minutes because someone’s tv did not work. We missed our set transportation which was already rescheduled 4 times and had to pay $150 Uber to get home"
Pros: "JetBlue always offers great service, entertainment and snacks."
Cons: "Nothing except the weather. A little windy and bumpy. :)"
Cons: "They had to reset entertainment sets 3 times before they started working. This happens regularly on the SFO to BOS jetblue flight."
Cons: "We had a delay of 3 hrs which kept us waiting in the middle of the night"
Pros: "There was actual room for my legs."
Cons: "There could have been more legroom so that you could actually get out without almost sitting in someone else's lap. But it was easier than my last flight (on American Airlines). Having a meal available would have been nice on a flight of almost 6 hours."

Cons: "They really shouldn’t take 20 minutes to advertise their credit card mid flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, snacks, good price, nice & helpful were all the flight attendants and persons at the counter. Flight was 20 min late arriving at Denver, but our pilot got us to Boston on time-much appreciated. Free WiFi was great.seats and the next plane (my plane)o not"
Cons: "Could have taken an earlier flight from Boston to DCA, but there was $75 change fee even though the plane had lots of seats. But I do not hold this against JetBlue."
Pros: "We upgraded to the “extra legroom” seats and they were so comfortable. The free entertainment was very nice and made the flight time pass quickly. The crew was friendly, attentive, and kind. We are looking forward to flying with them again."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Red eye flight was delayed over an hour. Caused me to miss my connection in the AM, my two new options were an out of state airport or a six hour wait at the airport. Unfortunately the girl who sat next to me had panic attacks and ‘seizures’ the whole flight long, requesting medical personnel on board and the constant attention of the attendants. No sleep to be had. By far my worst experience flying all around."
Pros: "Very apologetic About the weather delay which they have no control over."
Cons: "The flight attendant wasn’t friendly and the airplane was 20 degrees I asked her to turn down the air a bit but it never happened"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late leaving Chicago. We sat on the plane for quite a while (over 30 min) shut up tight with little air circulation AND no information about why we were not leaving the gate. Flight crew were not very friendly - almost "marched" up and down the aisle and barked at people."
Cons: "Flight delayed from Raleigh to Boston due to weather. Flight time moved up slightly and we were told by Mike at gate C-8 that we would make our connecting international flight but we didn’t. Total nightmare. Incompetence everywhere’s we looked with this airline. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "is how comforting that the pilot spoke to us in a generous + friendly way \ 'twas reassuring as the flight attendant seemed disinterested + less able to exude a fruendly manner / I get it - short trip, wknd which she may wish she had had off BUT there may be one person really uncomfortable+not travel savvy that she couldve noticed...Also why review soda+salty snax?"
Pros: "Comp snacks and sodas, legroom, tvs, hot towelettes in coach."
Cons: "At end of flight (which touched down 1/2 hour early) we lost savings due to malfunctioning jet way. Twice this week this happened! What gives?"

Cons: "Delay/ nervous about missing bus home."
Cons: "Tiny TVs. Needed reading glasses to see programming."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Delay in getting bag"
Cons: "Security was so backed up. I was not the only one who missed a flight, there were several people in line with me That also missed fights. They seemed very understaffed. When myself and other passengers asked them for help, they either ignore us or laughed."

Pros: "Crew was really nice"
Cons: "Tv did not work"

Pros: "Nice flight, exited the plane quickly"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was in Class D, I boarded the plane after many people and there was zero space for my carry on- which contains medical equipment, and I was forced to put it below. The overhead compartments are teeny tiny, and when other people shove all their bags in there, there's no room for other people's single carry ons."
Pros: "They were very efficient on getting people on the plane"
Cons: "I had gotten sick on a flight....just a little and did not receive alot of help from staff as there was no bag for me in my seat. I had to clean up the area. I also found there was not spray if needed for this sort of accident. Other issue - which is just a general is people who bring the big suitcases and people who have smaller cannot get it in overhead due to the size. Also the fees for a second bag is ridiculous and it was unfortunate that I had to pay as if I did not then I would have been over. either way....lose lose"
Pros: "Quick and efficient: boarding, service, connections = as good as it gets for the money."
Cons: "Screen didn't work well so I couldn't choose what I wanted to watch. Also, the volume kept bumping all the way up all of a sudden and hurting my ears so had to turn it off. No real food for sale."

Pros: "easy boarding, plenty space, kind and helpful crew"
Cons: "delayed flights both ways, very cold air conditioning (which a flight attendant did adjust after I asked), sound didn't really come through headphones - very scratchy"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."

Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Pros: "Seats are fine. Ordering system is up to date."
Cons: "After the first two hours of my flight (which I sleep through) I couldn’t buy a drink a soda or anything."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."

Cons: "Seats won’t stay reclined."
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."

Cons: "Only negative thing she could say was her flight was delayed an hour. But that isn’t terrible considering all the holiday travelers."
Cons: "Wheelchair shortage on arrival, although I had one reserved. Waited for a while then walked. Not ideal. Very long wait for bus to rental car center."
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"

Pros: "No delay and friendly crew!"
Cons: "Not much leg room and the coffee was horrific."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Flight itself uneventful"
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality.

Cons: "They didn’t have wine in such a long flight"
Pros: "Happy to get an earlier flight - and was put in ComfortPlus"
Cons: "Small plane, no entertainment (movies, music)"

Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "Friendly crew with modern plane"

Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Food available was good."
Cons: "Very tight space- could not reach floor when person in front of me moved seat into recline position. Could not get out of seat to go to bathroom when my seat mates were sleeping. Tough to load- tight spaces."
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."

Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "For a quick hop boston to toronto it was ideal"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats are comfortable. The waiting time is horrible...they are always late!"
Cons: "I like landing at Billy Bishop, it is very convenient and not too crowed but lately the common lounge has gotten so crowed that you can only seat on the floor. The flights are usually 2 hrs delayed sometimes 3 or 4 hrs delayed! so never plan on having a connecting flight on the other side of your tr"
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: "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!"
Pros: "Good airline for going. Out of the country and direct flight from Boston"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The beverages that was served"
Pros: "Solid and professional connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was very very helpful. Excellent flight"

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!)"
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."
Cons: "4:30 flight delayed and then cancelled around 6. I booked the 8:30 flight on my own because they automatically put everyone on the next day's flight without consulting us. The 8:30 flight too was delayed and we boarded the plane at 9:45. The we were asked to deplane. They made us board a different flight at 10:45. These people should not be running an airline--it is dangerous! And what a nightmare!"
Pros: "Nice snacks and espresso in lounge in Toronto"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours due to heat and not good communication to passengers about flight status - plane was tiny. Landing was bumpy. also lounge in Toronto was over crowded"
Cons: "After paying for bag check & being at the airport 3 hours early, the aIn-line was over weight so they removed my bag to the next flight, rather than the gate checked bags! They promised me the bags would be delivered right away, then after I checked, lied to me that they had been picked up by the delivery service."
Cons: "Every flight was delayed at least 30 minutes and the boarding and deplannaning process was close to a third-world country airline. Terrible."
Pros: "flight crew members were polite and helpful; the little freebies are a nice touch (water, cookies, etc.);"
Cons: "navigating porter's boarding process is somewhat difficult for people new to YTZ... the lounge where porter warehouses its passengers is overcrowded given the traffic and it's hard to know where / when to proceed to board. One unfortunate feature of low cost airlines across the continents seems to be the need to have read an instructional manual on how they *do things* prior to leaving for the airport ..."
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: "The flight was great. Left on time and arrived on time. Great service from the flight attendants."
Pros: "Bishop airport in Toronto is great. Comfy, small, and super close to downtown - I walked to the airport!"
Pros: "Arriving and calling someone to help me with the wheelchair was good. The women were so friendly and helpful. But when you're "stuck" in a chair and I arrived early, it would be nice for someone to check to see if you had to go the washroom. And I had to flag someone down to get me to the aircraft. No one came by and offered. But overall fantastic experience. I would fly porter again."
Cons: "Wish their was more food on the flight. Even though it was a short one."
Pros: "Great service. Efficient."
Cons: "there was a delay due to congestion in logan. they shouldn't have boarded us. we stayed in that tiny plane for an hour"
Pros: "Thankfully I fell asleep a few minutes after take off."
Cons: "Crew was trash talking people as they were passing by during boarding. "I'm going to go check on some of these rows, given how this flight boarded, I'm not hopeful we'll get going soon." Lots of muttering under breath and eye rolling."
Pros: "Great crew ... friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."
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."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "-quick connection and lounge -having real glass to drink out of on the flight is a real treat"
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: "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: "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: "40 minute flight delay with clear weather conditions"
Pros: "The porter lounge in Toronto offered complimentary snacks, coffee, tea, bottled water, and a few varieties of soda. If you wanted something a bit more there was a mini food cafe to supplement what wasn't offered in the complimentary area. Free wifi, and ample seating made the wait for a flight bearable."
Cons: "Although the wifi was free it was limited to non streaming sites. No Netflix while you wait."

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."
Cons: "Missed my flight and i had to buy a new ticket to Saskatoon."
Pros: "Downloaded WestJet app in Toronto while waiting to board the next flight. Enjoyed the selection of free movies and TV shows. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The connecting flight to Halifax was a long haul at the end of B terminal. Same airline, just really far away! Maybe it has to be that way due to the international arrival, but it was stressful. Wear tennis shoes! Flight attendants were efficient but not as friendly as the Toronto folks. The advertised “power at every seat” did not work."

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.

Cons: "There was nothing to dislike. I have a great service and will fly with Westjet again. Highly recommended. No delays. No issues"

Pros: "Flight attendants Snacks Entertainment options"
Cons: "No screens; but the options were provided"
Pros: "All the crew"
Pros: "The flight over all was good. Service, and delivery of the expectations were good. Even though the items listed in the dislike are 3 in number, and added to an uncomfortable experience, some of them are identifiable as beyond control, yet others are within the control of system set up or process."
Cons: "small items that I didn't like were : 1) Temperature, and 2) wifi 3) waiting for electrical. 1) Temperature: When boarding the plane the Temperature of the cabin was extremely warm. The pilot advised of the condition, this was not something that could have been fixed and I think they handled it well. I just didn't like the 90+ temperature 2) Wifi: was intermittent, I ensured the Westjet app was the only one running, but the movie I was watching was pausing every 15 minutes to buffer. So it was a constant reminder of dial up.... 3) waiting for electrical: Upon landing and taxi-ing to the ramp, the pilot was advised that there was no electrical to support the plane after he turned off the engines. So good that he waited, thank you pilot, and not so good as it was another unpleasant item on the plane ride."
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: "Seats were roomy. The biscoff was tasty. No issues boarding or during the flight."
Cons: "The westjet app wouldn't let me sign in so no entertainment but I brought my own so no biggie. This flight was fully booked And they needed people to check their bags. One flight attendant seemed kind of snippy about it to another passenger but I understand her frustration."
Pros: "Fight left on time, crew was friendly, entertainment system worked."
Cons: "Cramped seats made worse by reclining passengers seated in front of me. Couldn't pre-order my meal even though I tried 24 hrs before ( 2 days is apparently the requirement)."

Cons: "Late leaving, hot in plane, sat on tarmac for 40 mins"
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"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1.5 hours because incoming plane did not arrive. Finally took off 2.5 hours late. Just in time to arrive in Charlottetown to a severe thunderstorm. Circled til low on fuel then flew to Moncton. Refuelled and flew back to Charlottetown, arriving at 3 a.m., four hours late. The weather delay was understandable but WestJet's poor scheduling created the problem. Worst of all, the airline never told anyone what was going on, not the passengers nor the people waiting for them at the airport. Total silence. Unbelievable but typical for airlines."
