Pros: "A full complément of movies to choose from"
Pros: "I like the spaciousness in the front for your feet."

Pros: "good service good flight"
Cons: "everything"
Cons: "Change gate not done properly"
Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"
Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."
Pros: "More room in economy than other airlines. Thanks!"
Cons: "Still miss the live tv programs from Virgin America days."
Pros: "Half of the flight was empty. I asked of I could move to the row behind. I was told that was premium seating and I didn’t pay for that. I didn’t appreciate being addressed like that. And did ot really matter when nonoe is sitting there or plenty of other seats."
Cons: "She could have just let me sit there. I should have been told that the seat didn’t recline when the ticket was pirchase."
Cons: "Nothing - most excellent flight!"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "first class service"
Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."
Pros: "Crew Entertainment"
Cons: "Two hour delay"
Pros: "Both the ground crew and flight crew provided exceptional service. They were caring, attentive, and very helpful from the time we arrived at the airport in San Francisco until we landed at Washington Dulles."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."
Pros: "Flight was fine. Crew friendly. Seat comfort quite good. Movies etc great."
Cons: "Cabin very cold. Took 90 min for crew to come around for drinks and orders. Nothing to do with rough air."
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived half an hour before schedured"
Cons: "The plane is not clean, seat very small I am not a fat person"
Pros: "Roomy seats and all together comfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't anything we did not like."
Cons: "The gate was switched at the last hour for no apparent reason to a gate that had a delayed flight. My flight was delayed an hour as we waited for the first flight to depart and then my flight to deplane, get cleaned, load and depart. Not sure why this needed to happen."
Pros: "Boarding smooth"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were fantastic."
Cons: "The application I had to download had cookies."
Pros: "Nothing, didn’t fly"
Cons: "I purchased insurance in the event my circumstances changed and I couldn’t fly. My circumstances did change and I ended up not flying. When I contacted Alaskan, they “reimbursed” me for the flight but simultaneously charged me $125 as a change fee. The result was no benefit from the insurance, and a loss of my money as a result."
Pros: "The great selection of movies available on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed rude and not friendly."
Pros: "Also...spacious seating by coach standards"
Cons: "Never a fan of boarding zones but it was fine"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Our seats did not recline - this was a red-eye flight so not seats that do not recline is a problem. The plane was very cold and we kept our jackets on but it was still too cold. The flight attendant said it was warmer in the center of the plane. That's great for them but didn't help us since we were not seated in the middle."

Pros: "Flight was not crowded, so there was an empty middle seat. Arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and the seats were very comfortable. Overall very good experience."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"
Pros: "Premium seating has more leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system down. WiFi worked intermittently and was very slow. Without the system, food service was nonexistent. I actually asked for food to purchase only to have an attendant walk to ‘check’ and never return. Abysmal."
Cons: "We only had one drink for a 5 hour flight! Took two hours until we were finally able to get a glass of water."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional - friendly and took care of passengers, including helping an old lady with her bags etc."
Pros: "all was good trip and service nothing to criticize"
Pros: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"
Pros: "Usually we fly United on a direct flight to PDX. That flight is no longer available so we chose Alaska to Seattle. Their entertainment and internet actually works making them a better option than United. Flights were on time, crew was friendly, and the aircraft was clean. No complaints with Alaskan, and actually happy to change airlines after years of being with United even though it is not a direct flight to our destination."
Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."
Pros: "Alaska is great in all ways"

Pros: "The staff was really friendly, easy boarding, great fast baggage claim. overall great!"
Pros: "The person next to my wife was snoring for three and half hours and spilled coffee on her, besides that it was OK. I have had way better from your Alaska Airlines ..."
Cons: "I just told you..."
Pros: "I loved the free chat and free entertainment! It made such a long flight go so much better and goodbyes and travel easier knowing that I could communicate on the go! For someone with social anxiety, being able to talk to loved ones when I was going through things was the best experience ever! Thank you so much!"

Pros: "Good service from the crew and the boarding process was made quick and punctual."

Cons: "I find my luggage broken, I need my luggage replace. I was told at airport to file online I've been tryin to file a claim online on AVIANCA'S website but I was not able to find a link to follow a claim. Please help me. Thank you! Olga Noriega 202.409.4830"

Cons: "I was completely rerouted at the last minute to take 3 flights instead of just one and completely missed all of my other connections. Avianca forced to to travel for over 36 hours and continued to have all of my rerouted flights delayed.

Pros: "Due to their overbooking I was almost foreced to stay, I was told that I was travelling at my own risk: please give me a break!"
Cons: "The pushy attitude of the check in hostesses"

Cons: "It would be nice to have food options that do not include meat. However, in general the food was poor."
Pros: "Poor attitude by crew members. Upon arrival back to the USA, found luggage had been broken and items lost. I spent 1 hour filing paperwork with Avianca- two months later and I have not heard from them. Unbelievable. Will not fly Avianca again."

Seatback unit very difficult to make work.

Worse experience ever

The check-in boarding counter only had 1 employee, the flight was running 20mins late.

Delayed departure. Made me have to pay more for parking and had to call out of work.

Flight was overbooked and we didn’t leave on time.

Appears to have been delayed to wait for other crews to get to Miami, its tough now but schedules missed count

Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.

Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Pros: "See previous comments"
Cons: "See previous comments"
Cons: "Temperature control. Information about the delay"
Cons: "Delta Comfort isn’t so comfortable. Seats are too skinny."
Cons: "Check your planes thoroughly before placing passengers on it. The pressurized cabin almost killed us!!"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "Fawn on our flight from Atlanta to Newark was amazing."
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Our seats were assigned at the gate. Somehow we were given the comfort + seats. Very nice! Thank you!"
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Pros: "We landed safely - crew was nice enough."
Cons: "Heard one crewmember make snarky comment about another passenger (A stranger). Had to wait on the ground for about 30 min for 6 crewmembers that “needed” to be in MN. Yeah, that was awesome with a 2 yo and 4 yo..."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was courteous, I asked for a blanket and a banana (I saw some being passed to delta select (?) passengers), and got both, no one snapped at me like on an earlier flight.5"
Cons: "The flight was 3.5 hrs late. (Had it been on time, I would have missed it entirely though because Atlanta airport passport control was complete chaos, I heard the airport wa closed earlier for weather related reasons). Enough said."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Going to Denver was delayed and now return trip delayed We were give 3 separate reasons. Poor communication. Just telling me a flight will be delayed is not communication. Lack of a free snack was disappointing. May have to rethink flying Delta next time."
Cons: "The service was horribly they dilate my flight 24 hours and I lose my flight yesterday because from Washington to Atlanta the flight was late and from Atlanta to Tegucigalpa leave early"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were great- comfortable seats, got to watch a couple of movies with headphones provided by Delta; forgot mine so I assumed I would be miserable thru the whole 4 hour flight. so glad I was wrong! Would definitely take another flight with Delta... looking into the frequent flyer program as we speak"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Comfortable temperature in cabin!"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "The airline crew seems to be getting better, although I can't say that they are super helpful"
Cons: "The seats, just water offered, the bathroom, no Wifi, extremely crowded and small plane. Seriously, I don't understand what is all the money payed used for since I just heard that the crew members might be actually underpaid"
Pros: "When we landed and I was able to get off the plane"
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclining his sea before take off and the crew not correcting him so I had to which I did. He told the crew "he had the right" Crew refused to correct him because he was on a buddy pass so the rules didn't apply to him."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "Free movies/TV is a great amenity. Overhead bins were full by the time I boarded, so I gate-checked my bag. The staff was helpful and accommodating, which made that process quick and easy."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. There's got to be a more efficient way than zones."
Cons: "See above description"
Pros: "GRU to ATL to LEX - all was fine. The plane from GRU to ATL was one of the nicer jets I have ridden in. The ratings above reflect my overall trip of going to Sao Paulo and returning to Lexington, even though the first part had to be re-booked on United."
Cons: "LEX to ATL to GRU did NOT happen because the LEX flights were delayed to the point of missing the ATL connection. While Delta re-booked me on United, my flight arrived 3 hours later than scheduled (so transportation plans had to change), my bag did not successfully move from the Delta flight to the United flight (and was thus delayed in getting to GRU) AND once the bag was received, 4 shirts had been stolen. While a delay/theft claim has been filed with United, this could all have been avoided if the Delta flights had been on time."
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Prefer access"
Cons: "Schedule, we got late at Panama AirPort"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Limited selection of entertainment, but adequate (barely) for the flight time. Food was decent."
Cons: "Don't transfer through Panama; worst experience with ill-trained gate security agents taking personal property for no reason, broken toilets, no real dining options. Just use another transfer city like MIA or skip COPA altogether if you have to transfer in Panama."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food selection very good as well"
Pros: "inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The price I paid for the ticket was outstanding, and that I am not charged for my checked bag."
Cons: "Yesterday, COPA "did not have a system" so they were doing everything MANUALLY. I almost missed my connection because we were supposed to leave San Jose at 11:23, but did not get off the tarmac until almost noon!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. The attendant did not inform us at all. We were questioned to a level that is acceptable on why we could not change our flight times. No vegetarian options to meals.

Cons: "They go above and beyond to make you happy."
Pros: "Crew and service was great."

Cons: "We"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. Crew was ok."
Cons: "Lousy food. Small, old aircraft (737). No individual screens, no phone chargers, asked for a repeat hot dish and was told yes, but never got it. It lacks behind many other carriers. I was expecting much better."

Cons: "more interactive global map showing the route, change it up a bit"

Pros: "The price was really good, was the best way to returned yo Nicaragua."
Cons: "the entertainment for my seat was not working. I switched to the seat next to me and i was experiencing the same problem. I was told by the flight attendant they would re start it but they didn´t."
Cons: "The boarding and departure took extremely long. I understand that there was a Power outage the day prior to this flight and that this cause major delays and issues throughout the following days."
Pros: "The electricity went out at the airport in Panama which caused cancellations and delays. Copa did not handle the situation well. They did not put extra staff to deal with all the people who missed their flights. It was a total mess. I had to wait hours to get a new flight."

Cons: "10 hr delay in San José. A nightmare!"
Cons: "Both ways we had to sit and wait on board for over 2 hours on tarmac prior to take off. Captain said needed more fuel and to fix problem or to lessen weight. Tried to get bottle of water because I was dying of thirst and staff could not sell a bottle of water. Only give a 3oz cup full. Which was gone in 2 seconds."
Pros: "In flight staff was very friendly and attentive. Especially Miguel who put forth extra effort trying to help us find transportation options to our hotel at the time of day we arrived."
Cons: "The only thing that was inconvenient was that because of the mode of travel (private flight) we used to get to San Jose, we had to sit at the airport for almost 5 hrs and even though there were at least three other Copa flights to Panama City, they were all overbooked and we Were not able to change to an earlier flight."

Cons: "We were faced with many difficulties throughout the process including delays at every stage (plane boarding, takeoff, bus shuttles, etc.) of four different flights. The flight to Panama City was a significantly more enjoyable experience, but the return trip was absolutely miserable. After being boarded, we waited on the runway with no explanation for over a half hour. Then the flight staff came through with a very mediocre dinner and drink; however, they never came back for anything else until the customs form, and any attempts to flag them down were fruitless. When I finally got their attention, I requested water, and never received it. It was an incredibly frustrating and thirsty experience."

Awful customer support. Never again

Pros: "Short and sweet."
Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."
Pros: "All was good, also of note is the flight was not full"
Cons: "Seat assignments. My husband and I were not assigned seats together, however we were able to sit together because the seat next to me was empty."
Pros: "The check-in process was very easy and friendly. The flight attendants seemed nicer than other airlines."
Pros: "staff did the best they could to assist"
Cons: "Flight change, would have like more options to reschedule flights. However good service from overall."
Cons: "From Vancouver to Los Angeles no screen seats no Entertainment"
Pros: "The entertainment made the time go by fast."
Cons: "More food purchase options"
Pros: "The bathroom was extremely cramped! No TV available on long flight."
Cons: "I signed up for a wheelchair when I purchased my ticket. There was a delay getting me a wheelchair in San Jose to get to my gate. After landing in Toronto there was not a wheelchair waiting at the plane exit. There was a wheelchair inside the airport - but no one available to push it!"
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "crew very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The attendant didn’t take any chance on rainy whether condition and got me on an earlyer flight to make sure I wasn’t goinig to miss my connections flights. It worked out perfectly."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thank you"
Cons: "Had seat that didn’t recline and not in an exit row. My fault for not changing"
Pros: "The service was excellent and got help with the infant, friendly staff"
Pros: "westjet is the only way to go."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow us to check our bags online without charging baggage fees; Culdn't get electronic boarding passes; Took forever to check-in at airport. boarding passes and baggage tags had to be hand-written."
Pros: "Good movies...uuneventful flight and on time. Good service and funny steward."
Cons: "The ground crew in Calgary were slow getting boarding ramp onto aircraft. Little leg room in coach in rear seats."
Pros: "comfortable seats, wifi entertainment"
Cons: "Unable to upgrade delta flight because it was a westjet code share flight, westjet unable to upgrade delta flight because it was to be done on delta servers. I was finally able to upgrade at the delta check-in counter for a higher fee than usual (ontop of the perfered seat upgrade I already paid for). I waited 1.5hrs after takeoff before I called staff for a drink. Over 2hrs before they officially started serving main cabin drinks and snacks. There was some turbulence but they could have served people by hand without the cart. They had no problem serving first class before, during and after takeoff."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Poor service before boarding."
Pros: "Always great people st Westjet! Flown with other airline providers, they dont give what Westjet does. Great service everytime!!"
Cons: "No information"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "Liked that personnel are diverse and inclusive."
Cons: "Personnel at West Jet counter did not communicate clearly and loud enough for passengers to hear compare to other persons from other airlines like Delta wherein person spoke clearly. Suggest further training on communication skills."
Pros: "Direct flight good sale price"
Cons: "Westjet connect doesn't work well. Plane very full and stuffy. Return flight delayed 1 hour"
Cons: "Lazy flight attendant. Only got served once during the entire flight"
Cons: "Coffe was soooo bad!"
Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful.i"
Cons: "I was told at the ticket counter in Boston that my checked bag would go straight thru to Vancouver and I would not need to pick it up in Montreal. when I got to Montreal I was told to go to baggage claim and pick up my bag, which I did."
Pros: "Westjet service"
Cons: "Calgary International airport is one of worst airports in north america. Sad how badly planned a new airport could be."
Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy. Boarded among the first passengers in the last zone group to board the aircraft. All overhead bin space already gone. Sat with my knees up around my chin for whole flight. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I like West Jet over all and it is my preferred airline, as it flies direct between most cities I need to visit. The price is decent and the majority of time the in flight staff are reasonable. I had another flight recently where they were excellent."
Cons: "The flight attendants were a little dour. Whether due to the time of flight or that they were leaving Orlando, I don't know, but I was expecting a little more cheer or at least positivity from them. Also the flight was "running low" on drinks and so I they only came through the cabin once to offer soft drinks, which I needed as I had still to catch a red eye and function during my layover. I wasn't pleased with them. Lastly the West Jet connect app worked just fine for my ipad but despite advertising my wife was unable to get it to work on her computer (mac) despite multiple attempts. If TVs are no longer going to be standard on planes someone needs to be present to help with I.T. when the system isn't working as advertised."
Pros: "What can you say -They were their usual great !"
Cons: "Snack options..."
Pros: "Tall dark haired flight attendant from Prince Edward Island was very accommodating is very professional. He had his jacket the whole time and it made flying on west jet seem sophisticated and like we were important enough to dress up for. Also the female flight attendant that did the announcements was great. She made the announcements in a friendly, slightly humorous way rather than sounding bored and businesslike and "let's just get through this" manner."
Cons: "Lack of ice for drinks and snacks. Also, I have noticed that on many flights now, they start with paid service and then free beverage service and often that is about 2 hours into the flight. I realize you probably do that to keep those who need booze from getting anxious or angry, etc. and to make money, but it makes me, who paid the same for my ticket, feel iike steerage class. It would be nice if those of us who aren't puchasing booze (which also includes those who want booze) could get served first, then do the paid. These are little things, but would distinguish you from others. If I knew when I flew with West Jet I could have several packs of crackers or cookies or a small cheese and cracker pack along with ice in my drink and quick soft drink service along with flight attendants that were allowed to be friendly and have a sense of humor, I would consider West Jet more often and even pay a little more. I would pay to be treated a little better than the others."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Over crowded seating. Over head music that you had to talk over. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Cons: "this flight was cancelled after we boarded and no other flights were available until two days later - completely unacceptable for a 1-hour flight for which most people travel for a weekend, particularly when other airlines sent flights safely in the same conditions (Air Canada later that night, Porter early the next morning)"
Pros: "Not over crowded this time"
Cons: "Liked it better with in flight entertainment"
Pros: "It was great experience once again. I always travel with WestJet as it is always on time."
Cons: "That every time I travel I always get the farthest seat if not on #28 it's 24...wish next time I can get in the middle at least. Other than that all is good."
Pros: "It was priceless as we were taxiing down the runway, the entire outside crew were lined up waving a holding a banner. And the crew person who made all the announcements had such a wonderful sense of humour. It was a very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The pilot on the Honolulu flight to Vancouver left some documents at the hotel and he had to go back to get them therefore delaying our flight to vancouver. This caused a lot of passengers connection flights delayed and rebooked to another flight later on that day. No apologies or compensation of time wasted was given. Food vouchers would have been nice. The new boarding passes provided also pushed most of us passengers back to the last seats at the back of the plane.. which was a very uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "I am mute and the staff was generally good at accommodating my communication methods. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight experience ever)"
Cons: "Staff updated my status to Deaf passenger without my knowledge. I am not Deaf, my hearing is fine and I understand English perfectly. I have no problem understanding the safety messaging. I am mute, I can't talk, that's all. I try not to misrepresent myself so that I don't take resources from Deaf people, so this frustrated me. also, I guess WestJet changed food policy again, now MUST pre order food, because no food was available on the flight if not Plus."
Cons: "Rough landing and held up the taxiway for an hour"
Cons: "Small aircraft, not enough leg room. Makes sleep impossible."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming."
Pros: "Screaming movies"
Cons: "Arriving over a hour late then staying on the tarmac in Orlando for another 45 minutes as the gate wasn't working when there was plenty of other gates available."
Pros: "Direct flight from my hometown of Palm Springs Ca to Vancouver Canada"
Cons: "Left late and I arrived 35 min late had to go through customs and didn't make it from international to domestic. Rebooked a flight 3 hours later for $75."
Pros: "Comfortable newish aircraft. No entertainement, but it is ok for a short flight; same with food."
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage, I received it about 36 hours later. Most important: they never called me for updates (contrary to their own information sheet). I had to call several times; their online follow-up is badly set up, too."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Pros: "I love the leg room on this airline as well as the fact that entertainment/internet is free."
Cons: "Seat pockets could be a bit bigger but the ample floor space makes up for it."
Pros: "Staff were wonderful, funny and accommodating"
Cons: "flights were late leaving"
