Code share experience.. Staff in Atlanta Not Knowledgeable at the gate . Movies selection disappointing and not refreshed .
WestJet caused several problems. They messed up my ticket and somehow added my daughter (infant in arms) twice. When we went to connect it caused a huge problem that too 2 hours to solve. (Missed our flight). To add insult to injury we boarded the plane and it sat at the gate for over an hour while they found a ground crew to load the luggage.
It was a short trip so I had reading material with me
Fine, crew very friendly but bag delayed (arrived about two weeks late).
Delayed because of late incoming , but once loaded, was a great flight.
Not only was my bag not on the flight. They didn't notify me until 7pm where my bag was. My flight was at 10:35am. I was left for 2 days without a toothbrush and lotion, face cream and charger and clothing. I still haven’t actually received my bag but they say it’s on the next flight. Major hassle. So rude that they must have known right away my bag wasn’t on the flight but they failed to let anyone know. I thought my luggage was stolen at the baggage claim. Major stress. Messing up my vacation. They want me to submit receipts to compensate for me having to to buy replacement stuff but the damages were more than just having to buy a new toothbrush. It was the stress and anxiety that was the major problem.
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "no food available to be purchased. we left almost 2 hours later than scheduled and were very hungry."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Chair didn’t recline"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could considering the delays."
Cons: "More information on the three-hour delay"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"
Cons: "Frequent American Airlines passenger. Found WestJet had far more leg room and plenty overhead storage. Plane was clean and flight attendants where attentive."
Cons: "We missed the connection between the two flights. They booked me for a flight the next morning. They did not provide voucher or reimbursement for food or lodging."
Pros: "Super helpful gate agents and smooth entry process back into the country."
Cons: "Crew on plane weren’t great. The male attendant wasn’t very understanding when a little girl had to use bathroom before we even left the gate. One of the women attendants ended up letting her go while taxing. Clearly the guy doesn’t understand kids. We could have ended up with a plane smelling like"
Pros: "For some reason, we found ourselves in the Premium section for our return flight from Palm Springs. So we got fed!! Which was nice. And we had a little more legroom, “spare seat” between us, etc."
Cons: "It was a short flight, only 2 1/2 hours, so you can’t really expect much. It’s the long flights where service really makes a difference."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours at Pearson Airport."
Pros: "Everything was fine with crew and food."
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 2hours due to technical snag"
Pros: "Entertainment system was easy to use"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, jammed, not that friendly."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great"
Cons: "No power chargers on the planes"
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Pros: "The airline crew was amazing. The airport staff went above and beyond to help my mother through the airport."
Cons: "Old plane. No WiFi. Movie options were limited."
Cons: "They told us a flight attendant called in sick and they had to get a replacement to drive in from the City. Put the whole full flight an hour and a half late leaving. Poor system to deal with sick crew. I am a teacher. When a teacher calls in sick. School still starts at the same time. No postponements."
Pros: "The cabin crew were outstanding on WS709 today. This is my fourth trip with Westjet, and today stood above. Diane was beyond efficient and pleasant while maintaining a smile and grace, while a number of unattended children were onboard. My seat was changed, and that's fine - mostly because of the manner in which the crew at Pearson handled it. Then, I couldn't resist giving up my re-assigned (centre) seat so that two sisters could sit together. The two folk in my row were lovely, they talked more than I did, but when I joined in, it was a genuinely pleasant conversation. Three strangers, meeting per chance. The woman next to me had given her seat up for a family to sit together, so it really was a chance encounter! Diane needs to be promoted!"
Cons: "While things happen, I wonder why when I was readied a seat, it was missed that two children, sisters, were sitting in separate rows? Should they have automatically been assigned two seats together - they were unaccompanied. As happens, an 'aunt-like' woman was seated next to them, and again, Diane was an another in-charge auntie!"
Pros: "It was clean and on time"
Cons: "Economy too cramped."
Pros: "This leg of the travelling was fine. I know I got fleeced on the price of the round trip to go home for a funeral but didn't realize just how bad until my seatmate told me he paid a third of what I did. Note to self: Don't ask the traveller next to you how much they paid for their ticket..."
Cons: "Boarding attendant demanded to see my passport for a domestic flight even though I had produced the government-issued photo ID required."
Cons: "The complimentary in flight movie would not run on my android device. It ran for 5 minutes then froze."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment unless you download their app, however there was no signs or announcements to warn passengers of this. Flight was delayed and they lost my baggage even though it was a direct flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seats were too narrow, plane was changed to what looked like a smaller plane. Everything else wasn’t WestJet’s fault. Red eye flight and jerk behind me left his light on the whole flight and giy beside me kept rib checking me, preventing me from sleep. By the time plane landed I had been up 23 hours."
Pros: "The information given by the pilot overhead was timely and well delivered. The flight was smooth and we arrived safely."
Cons: "We sat for 4 hours on the runway. Aside from 1 crew member, they were impersonal, rude, and unaccomodating. They pilot spoke overhead very pleasantly and apologetically and encouraged walking around and using the restroom but they crew gave everyone a hard time. There was no offer of complementary food service or compensation for anyone despite being on the plane for double the amount of time planned. Finally, the in flight entertainment worked for maybe half hour of the actual flight with no explanation or acknowledgement."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Pros: "Quick and direct. Great staff"
Pros: "The destination is great"
Cons: "I missed my tee off time as we ended up being late and I could not get to my resort and then to course"
Pros: "Seat was great"
Cons: "Snacks could been better"
Pros: "We flew - we landed"
Cons: "Six family members travelling together... you’d think you could sit together wouldn’t you! Coffee & pretzel/cookie for a 3hr flight. Landed just after 1700, waited for luggage for almost one hour... good thing it wasn’t an A380 or 747."
Pros: "Friendly , helpful staff . Who know what they are doing and try to accommodate you with minimum fuss ."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind this trip"
Cons: "Some more food options"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I like that I got the plus seat for no extra charge."
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: "Very friendly crew !"
Cons: "It was delayed because they couldn't find the stewardess. So made me late for my plans , but other then that it was good . The crew was excellent on both flights"
Cons: "Seated @ the back & disembarking at the back door. Quick, easy on a bright sunshine day."
Pros: "Efficient and Friendly Service. Clean Aircraft. Snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Window seat is very cramped due to curve of the aircraft. Effectively no room to stretch both your legs."
Pros: "On the way back boarding started early and we left earlier than planned."
Cons: "Boarding has become quite the painstaking endeavor since all checked luggage is payed because now travellers try to fit everything in carry ons to save money which leads to everyone trying to put their stuff in the overhead bins. This isn't exclusive to one carrier though."
Pros: "Pleasant flight food and entertainment no used crew helpful and courteous comfort ... seats too close as always but plenty of bin space due to them asking people to check carry on luggage for free ...great idea"
Pros: "Staff were super friendly and welcoming"
There are few if any glutten free snack or meal choices.
need to update their movies selection for long haul flights!
The 2 seat exit row seats are much narrower than any other seat on the plane. I paid extra to be in an exit row and it was extremely uncomfortable.
Everything could have been better. The customer service was horrible! My flight got delayed and that lead to domino effect of loosing reservations in my vacations.
Very think on time and a very nice flight, even arrives early.
Pros: "I like the service ,the food in thos fliggt back. Excelent"
Cons: "Better rules for people who put the seat back while we eating ,some crewmembee could say something"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The disappointing issues were with the airport process."
Cons: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "Aeromexico reopened the flight for us after we arrived late from another flight. This was hugely appreciated especially since we were traveling with three small children. We will now only fly Aeromexico Instead of Interjet or volaris"
Cons: "Great flight and airline"
Cons: "The staff were pleasant and professional - the online check in was efficient. Really excellent and no recommendations for improvements."
Pros: "The plane works"
Cons: "Delta is very nice"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and we received a nice breakfast."
Pros: "It was a basic flight. Their check in system was down so they had to hand write boarding passes and baggage tags. They were professional and patient even when a customer started cursing because his bags could not be checked all the way to his final destination due to the computer issues."
Cons: "The layover was very long but Detroit is a very nice airport."
Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"
Cons: "Asked for orange juice and got sweetened orange water, you can do better."
Pros: "Nothing. I couldn’t even fly. I arrived 1.5 hours early and chose a seat directly in front of the gate. And fell asleep accidentally. Woke up two minutes after plane took off. T"
Cons: "The staff said they called my name many times. I don’t believe this for a second. I am a light sleeper, especially at airports. I know international airports are busy places, but when a man is asleep right in front of the staff calling his name, you think maybe just maybe they would wake me and say “are you benjamin”. But they didn’t. Now I am forced to by a brand new round trip ticket. Immensely unhappy."
Pros: "Everything was according to plan, I had no bad experience"
Cons: "They are changing their procedures and there was a bottle neck to do the check in. In previous years it was ok, this time it was terrible."
Pros: "On time , even early. Free drinks and snacks (peanuts)."
Pros: "Brand new plane"
Cons: "All the announcements are in Spanish which makes it hard for everyone else to understand. Flight departure was delayed as well."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "In general very poor customer service"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and missed my connecting flight, they had me going all over LAX and took 3 hours to finally put me in a standby. Aeroméxico and Delta kept blaming each other and obviously I was really frustrated."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Pros: "Great service, people are excellent at what the do."
Cons: "Paying too much for luggage. I can't believe that a second piece is more than double."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin crew was late, delaying the flight over an hour. When we arrived at the gate the ground crew acted like this was the first plane they’ve seen. Scrambling all over, everyone talking frantically on their cell...keystone cops"
Cons: "We sat at the gate for a long time (aside from the line of planes), we were sitting at the gate with little communication from the captain or crew. We ended up leaving an HOUR after our scheduled take off time, causing us to have to run to make our connecting flight."
Cons: "Was not happy that the plane did not have individual screens for entertainment on the long flight."
Pros: "tickets price was excellant"
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "I upgraded to AM PLUS so that I could take advantage of the EASY CHECKING. WIDER SEATS. BE AMONGST THE FIRST TO GET LUGGAGE. ALL THIS ITEMS WERE PROMISED BY YOU WEBSITE. non of these things happened. I was instructed to email to request a refund. Took ten days to here back and was denied. You guys have a perfect procedure for not giving refunds. Can’t talk to anyone by phone then take 10 days to deny. By that time most will just give up. I am a frequent flyer that will NEVER fly with you again and neither will the employees of my company."
Cons: "Departure was late."
Pros: "Overall trip was ok"
Cons: "Having to check in my carry-on because the plane is full. Lost a meeting because I had to wait for my bag at my final destination."
Cons: "My luggage wheel was broken :("
Pros: "The food and drink"
Cons: ". . . because of delays. Cannot comment but see above."
Pros: "They seemed to know what they were doing there."
Cons: "Our only checked bag didn't come until 2 days later. We had 3 bottles of tequila in that bag and the 2 high end bottles were stolen. We will never fly AeroMéxico again, and to top it off the last flight was on Delta. It's a joke that they even partnered up with AeroMéxico. I'm not happy that Kayak would even suggest this airline. Even though we are fluent in Spanish it didn't matter because the employees didn't know what they were doing anyways."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"
Cons: "No veg option in food menu"
Pros: "Why after paying my ticket i had to pay for my checked in bag. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Pay for it"
Pros: "On time and smooth boarding"
Pros: "I have accommodations paid after having my flight canceled."
Cons: "Lack of organization and information which caused delays to passengers after having the flight canceled."
Pros: "Hello, I checked in a dog in Detroit, The crew was great once they found out they can accept a dog. At first they were saying no because of partner with delta. I explain I booked the dog already and give all my required documents. Once in Mexico the documents were given to the authorities and when the crew in Detroit made copies they kept the originals and gave me the copies and they made me pay 1800 pesos for a vet to come and sign the paper.. I spoke to aeromexico in Mexico City and they said they are sorry but nothing can be done... This cause me my traveling money and 3 hours of very stressful times for me and my dog who had to stay in the box the whole time. Robin Martin"
Cons: "Included in the first box"
Pros: "I will not fly in this airline never."
Cons: "Dalay,boarding not very well organized."
Cons: "That we got delayed because of weather but that isn't anyone's fault"
The service was good during the flight, but booking process was arduous due to mysterious partial cancellation (on the return leg), which took me 1 whole day to connect to the RJ’s NYC ticketing department to straighten it out. The reservation line of RJ customer service said they did not have the authority to un-cancel it, nor refund the ticket. To undo, I would have to email the NYC office and wait 5-6 days for reply, while my departure is 5 days away. Then the NYC phone number given (and I also found on their website) had no one answering, until I got someone in accounting or HR department to transfer me to ticketing dept. Then the seat upgrade at the gate only takes cash, no CC. From speaking with other tour mates, other airlines were given them the similar headache too - cancelling part of the trip without rescheduling options.
We took off 1.5 hours late without ever receiving an explanation.
Paid quite a bit of money for tickets. Significant turbulence (NOT AA’s fault) made for a bumpy flight without drinks and snacks.
We will fly American again
Plane was EXCEPTIONAL CLEAN. SEATS SPACIOUS. CREW FRIENDLY, EFFIVIENT. WELL GROOMED
Cons: "Seats are thick but zero lumbar. Back too short at shoulders and I'm only 5'8""
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours because they had No crew to operate the flight! Such poor customer service on Americans part as well. No answers and rude agents when you tried to ask any questions"
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late. I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."
Cons: "I tried to mark all EXCELLENT, but I couldn't get the circle to color in the circle excellent."
Pros: "Service and flight was excellent"
Cons: "They were great"
Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"
Pros: "I have been flying American for 50 years, as a million miler."
Cons: "Another passenger asked for a drink. The passing crew member replied "i dont work first class." Very kindly the passenger asked again for a cocktail. The AA member then said "how many have you had?" Wow would be an understatement. We had been gate tied due to maintenance for over 30 minutes."
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"

Pros: "Friendly, professional, polite, perfect."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."
Pros: "On-time, 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"
Pros: "Overall, my experience aboard America Airlines was great!"
Cons: "There was nothing not to like!"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"

Pros: "Great staff"

Pros: "Everyone was nice, and accommodating. It was our 3 and 5yr olds first flight. Thank you very much American Airlines!!"

Cons: "no comment."
Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."

Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"
Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"
Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"
