Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"
Pros: "We got earlier than expected to our destination"
Cons: "Perhaps educate passengers on the new Delta process of boarding. Too many passengers where disorganized; the crew tried very cars to direct people"
Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "That I arrived safe."
Cons: "My seat didnt recline my back was in a lot of pain so was my neck. After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."
Pros: "Food Getting moved to the exit row for the extra leg room"
Cons: "Didn’t like having to wait so long to book my seat and ended up on the back row the worst seats on the plane"
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were non-existent since the flights were so short and on smaller jets.....so I guess 1star isn't really fair, but there was no option for N/A Flight attendants were friendly. VPS-ATL lead attendant was very sweet to a passenger in front of us who was on her first flight alone with her child to go to her fathers funeral in the Philippines. She also thanked a soldier for her service. Love these little touches."
Cons: "I'm so used to the nice screens with free tv games and flight tracker and really missed that on this trip. I'm glad I decided not to pay to upgrade to comfort + this trip for the first time in a long time."
Pros: "left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "no legroom even in first class."
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the food they served made my child sick. But hey, that is a given. Most airplane food sucks. But it shouldn't make a person sick. The flight staff was okay, but not nearly as professional and friendly as the crew flying to Lisbon. Thankfully none of them ran over my foot with the metal cart."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit rushed and the gate agent was visibly irritated by some passengers who didn’t check their bags."
Pros: "Everything was perfect and most of all ON TIME Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation, The crew sprayed me twice with the fizz from opening soda cans with no apology."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."

Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"
Pros: "every person who was not a delta employee, those people were kind and helpful."
Cons: "The gate agent was the opposite of professional. You might as well get a cardboard cutout. The gate agent was unable or unwilling to explain when and how I would get my seat assignment and with what group I should board with. A passenger helped me. I am a frequent flyer, primarily AA, I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "The free TV was nice."

Cons: "Leg room is never enough. I'm 6'1"."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible and check in can be more organized."

Pros: "I liked the fact that I was able to watch a movie on my phone."
Cons: "The flight was very rough at times."

Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Cons: "There were many empty seats, and when I moved from a cramped seat to a fully open row, the attendant rudely and humiliatingly admonished me for moving to a comfort+ from my "preferred" seat. It was unprofessional and extremely uncalled for. The seats were completely empty and there was no reason for him to admonish me loudly and rudely. I suffer from severe general anxiety disorder, fur which I take appropriate medications, but this incident caused an anxiety attack that lasted through the rest of the flight. Extremely disturbing that crew would behave so rudely and insensitively to anyone."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage.

I was seated when her collage pulled my back bag from the compartment to make room for a bigger luggage, left it on the seat next to me and said will take care later. With frustrating tone Staysy showed up and command me to put it under the seat. I told her to put it under and not to command me with this tone... as it was not my decision the bag to be there. She did put it under but kept making comments and even did not apologize. A frustrating flights - over 5 hours late with spicy flight attendant attitude."
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled . Re booked on a different flight , that one was delayed with no new time , with a threat that that flight would be cancelled , we were booked on a 3rd flight , to Toronto to connect to a delta flight to Atlanta . We were told that delta would give us our boarding pass to Atlanta at the delta desk in Toronto. At delta in Toronto we were advised that there were no available seats on the flight we were supposed to be booked on . Delta booked us to Detroit then on to Atlanta . Trip delay was over 9 hours and lots of stress and run around . Very disappointed with west jet . We have always used west jet and this was the first time we felt we were given very poor service .causing a very long and stressful day , arriving at our destination 9 hours later than planned , resulting in a 24 hour exhausting travel day."

Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
