Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."

Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."

Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Cons: "I'm not sure what to say about Delta and their maintenance program. On a three part trip, Delta cancelled two of the flights giving maintenance as the reason. So it appears they are flying planes until they breakdown. Besides making me not trust the flight worthiness, the cancelations turned my 8 and a half hour trip into a 25 hour trip forcing me to spend the night in the MEX airport."
Pros: "Free first checked bag, comfy seats"
Cons: "Would have liked more movie selection"
Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."

Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour resulting missing connecting flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "Delta has failed in trying to break into the Aspen market. Their "personal ground crew" was hapless. Half the passenger bags didn't make it on to the plane. When we checked in the ticketing agent was randomly stacking bags in a heap behind her, and not putting them on the conveyor belt. The flight attendant was loud and screechy, saying that it was easier to leave off the bags than take people off the plane. What?? How was this not accounted for before the flight. On the way out, they forgot to build in time to de-ice the plane. SMH"
Pros: "Apart from the boarding process the trip was great."
Cons: "The airport had us board at a gate where we had to go outside in the rain without any warning. Many of the pasengers were families with small children and dressed for the sunshine and no coats or other protection from the elements. There was no warning from WestJet or the airport in the process from booking to checkin."
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Pros: "more food choices"
Cons: "There's more snack."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."
Cons: "Wake people up when serving anything.. I have seen in some other airlines that one is provided with a sticker to place on your seat to show if you can or cannot be woken up"
Cons: "The baggage restriction was not good at least one Checking should be allowed"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"
Pros: "Premium seats were an amazing touch"
Cons: "Like all airlines it would be nice if there was an extra inch between the seats. Also, unfortunately the video wasn't working."
Cons: "The quality of the video streaming was really low. It was disappointing."
Cons: "Did not serve food."
Pros: "Casual attitude."
Cons: "better food option than a few dusty pretzels and a thimble of water."
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Gavin at check in was so great!! Amazing and professional!! Great clear concise announcements!"
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "I wish there were more food options"
Pros: "price efficiency"
Cons: "gate change last minute"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin"
Cons: "Westjet seating is tight"
Cons: "Way too cramped. Only 1 washroom."
Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "No one would get a wheelchair to get to cart that was on different floor. Driver didn't volunteer to carry bags to cart."
Cons: "Booked our seats 24 hours in advance and could not get seats together. Airline expects us to pay extra for reasonable expectations as that"
Pros: "Talia is an excellent stewardess—She takes good care of people"
Pros: "Haven't taken it yet"
Cons: "Well I'm not on the plane yet cause you left.me stuck in Vancouver"
Pros: "Really a pretty good trip in my opinion."
Cons: "Not too thrilled with the fact that only a couple of drinks and light snacks are free."
Cons: "Woman in seat beside should have taken 2 seats"
Pros: "New plane was nice."
Cons: "Snacks offered"
Pros: "I felt like the price was reasonable."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs and again the head rests didn't work. I also feel like the chairs don't recline as much as they use to. The good vibe and hospitality of Westjet was gone."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"
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: "Staff and aervice was great! No complaint!"
Cons: "We had to put our carry on bags a little far away from our seats"
Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Cons: "To the best of my knowledge I paid for a window seat on my trip to Montreal. It was the only option I elected to pay for, yet, I found myself in the middle seat. A personal life lesson we’ll learned and an experience to be remembered & considered, under advisement, on any future bookings."
Pros: "The people that work for WestJet are exceptional! I find everyone there is knowledge, helpful and happy. The last one is why I fly with WestJet. Its a real treat to be so well taken care of."
Pros: "I upgraded and that was definitely worth it."
Cons: "I don't like 2.5 hour flights in general. Just long enough to be annoying. But that has nothing to do with you and your airline."
Cons: "Not one complaint"
Pros: "Finally sleeping in my bed in Montreal"
Cons: "Cramped seats , no elbow room , could not sleep , very difficult to sleep - muscle pain in shoulders lead to nerve impingement and numb arms . If westjet cared about their reviews they would offer an upgrade on my return to make a fair judgement again their product line"
Pros: "The Pilot explained his Procedures thoroughly."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Being late into LA"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it."
Pros: "Smooth, friendly and cost effective."
Cons: "No entertain system"
Cons: "It had over 1 hour delayed no wifi no screen"
Cons: "West Jet personnel did not give any information about the customs process for connecting flights that I would face in Vancouver or the requirement to go through another security check between West Jet flights. I was told that I should simply go to the next gate to board the plane for Los Angeles -- and that I would do customs in the USA - so the info person sent me to retrieve my luggage (wrong info) and I ended with a 45 minutes anxious trek through the Vancouver airport! Once I found my gate, the West Jet personnel could not have been more kind."
Cons: "It was a little warm and stuffy while loading."
Pros: "Drinks and snacks several times! Lots of movies!"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "The onboard crew was rude and one guy actually grabbed me which to me is unprofessional. All because I had a poster tube that wasn't in my bag they wanted it in my bag. Then I asked for a seat change due to my size hard for ne to be in the middle and the lady was snooty about it."
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"
Cons: "American Airlines in Lima refused to accept my bags 50 minutes prior to departure (not my fault, due to a delayed flight) and caused me all sorts of headaches and problems. I almost had to sleep in a hotel over night. I missed my flight because AA were idiots."
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."
Cons: "Couldn't turn on reading lights the entire 8 hour flight to Hawaii! 8 hour flight and only a wrap to eat. Not even food offered for purchase in the last 7 hours of the flight"
Cons: "The gate agents were rude. So happy with their ‘power’ over passengers who are loaded like cattle onto the plane. They barked at every other passenger that their carry on bag was too big and wouldn’t even listen to train when bags would fit into the size checking stand."
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."
Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."
Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."
Pros: "On time and very professional"
Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "American Airlines was amazing fed you a good meal fun crew good entertainment had 3 glasses of wine desert , and hot biscuits and coffee before landing was a great flight."
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me ＄50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."
Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."
Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Pros: "Seats reclined, beverage service."
Cons: "Wish movie would have been a better movie, not animated."
Pros: "2:30 h late!"
Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"
Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."
Pros: "The chairs where comfortable and there was a free movie"
Cons: "The sound for the movie didn't work, the atenders dI'd not do any thing tI make uo for it. There was no complimentary snack. Loading on was a mess, not organized well."
Cons: "I am not a large person, 5'4, size 8. I was uncomfortably cramped in my seat. How do they expect normal sized humans to fit here??"
Pros: "Everything on time"
Cons: "After crossing in a 787 from Zurich this small older jet to Austin looked and felt like 15 years ago. Bathroom was bad for a 6'2" guy."
Pros: "It got to Vegas on time and my luggage was there, too."
Cons: "Rouge has less space per person than Spirit. I never thought that could be possible."
Pros: "Not really stands out as a positive."
Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."
Pros: "Ample legroom and very pleasant and helpful onboard staff."
Cons: "They didn't even let me check in. Spent 12 extra hours at the airports to get home."
Pros: "Traveling back to the US have Global Emtey or Nexus Like the free movies watched half of movie on the way to acanandr and half on the way back. Thank you"
Cons: "Last time I traveled to Canada I probably used a passport. BUT I never knew that I needed it I thought u could travel with my drivers lisence. Remind travelers to take their passport"
Cons: "delay after delay after delay. And the boarding location is shameful."
Pros: "We loved watching the movie "Keanu" together on the rented iPad. The soundtrack was hard to hear on the earbuds though."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "The gate area was horribly crowded, extremely chaotic and hot."
Pros: "On time and short! Everything was good"
Cons: "it was delayed for 1 hour"
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "Delays,multiple gate changes, poor waiting areas for express flights!!!"
Cons: "The system from the beginning was so unorganised ...went 2 hrs earlier even after online check in and it said u need to be there just an hour ..still had to run till the end.. Seat was so uncomfortable ..to add to the agony my luggage didn't arrive and had to wait till evening"
Cons: "1h15 late"
Pros: "This is the only part of my round trip with Air Canada that went without a glitch ... the plane was on time and the airport staff I encountered in Toronto was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Long time to get service."
Pros: "It left ontime and got me to where I needed to be."
Cons: "Pretzels are gross and dry. Jet Blue has much better snack choices. Overheard bins were really small on this small aircraft."
Pros: "Air Canada worked hard to get people where they needed to be but security was somewhat difficult although understandable"
Cons: "Same as above. everything was bad. from service and communication."
Cons: "Very bad cabin pressure -- lots of ear pain."
Cons: "The movies selection is not good"
Pros: "The trip from Toronto to San Francisco was better than the San Francisco trip because the return trip was on a Boeing 747 and a much more comfortable than the Airbus."
Cons: "The Airbus red eye going to Toronto was too cramped so it was not very relaxing. The planes are not clean. I'm glad I have wipes to clean the table tray because it was messy."
Pros: "All flying may have weather issues. At almost 1 am there was a wonderful ticket agent that was in charge of all of the rescheduled flights in the "basement" area of the Toronto airport. Thanks to her for her pleasant attitude."
Cons: "Lack of communication: 1. There were gate changes that just showed up on the board with no verbal announcement. 2. There were a large number of rescheduled flights on July 1, 2016. We were all "herded" into a small, hot area. It seems like this time of day has a number of late flights that don't seem to have a good plan. 3. We landed in Greensboro and the pilot walked in to tell us after the fact. Come on, an announcement before the actual landing would have been good communication."
Pros: "Customer care hotline service over the phone was great! They took care of all my problems and was very nice."
Cons: "Customer service at the airport needs to improve tremendously!"
Pros: "Nothing to expect more"
Cons: "The amount of snacks served should be increased"
Pros: "Amazing legroom!"
Cons: "Poor selections of snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Seats were wide and very comfortable"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable even with an empty seat beside me. Vegetarian meal was not good at all. The general pancake option was gone before it even got to where I was sitting and the omelette was old school flights.. Which in this case was really bad."
Cons: "The rest room did not work"
Pros: "Efficient. tv on back of screen didn't work"
Cons: "It was very cold!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable airplane. Old."
Cons: "This plane was very late! I understand this happens a lot."
Cons: "The announcement about turbulence were to much. Could have been way more subtle or shorter"
Pros: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."
Pros: "Terrible, only one spot open, long lines. We missed boarding and were forced to wait 4 hours after already 10 hours travel. No help and no mercy at the custom area."
Cons: "Use all airport customs agent's desks after a large plane arrivals."
Cons: "Overall good"
Cons: "No complimentary small snack at all, must pay for everything"
Pros: "It was fine. No frills, but that is what I expected. We arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "Had a delay Getty to the gate, but I think that was an issue from Charlotte airport."
Cons: "Stewredess who did it did not apologise Had smelly shirt and wet jesns for 3 hours"
Cons: "Media player change wasn't advertised"
Cons: "Your unprofessional staff"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
