The other option was I needed to go to the airport to change it and pay supplement. Luckily it was only a 30min taxi ride from my hotel. The desk staff could see the issue and resolved the problem within 20mins - extremely helpful. A shame this could not be sorted in UK by phone and email"

Pros: "I'm very dissapointed with avianca specially.now that I have a few trips coming up. When I was at the airport I asked the clerked for specific information ,I asked him how much it would cost to take my surfboards if it was going to be to expensive I would just leave them home ,he said no problem that there would be a charge of.$120_150 and it cover the trip until denpasar ,I asked are you sure?he said YES that he would put it on the note and that if I had any problems in NY to just show them the receipt well no need to say.that.when I arrived in NY I was charged again ,the cs rep of the other airline said they wouldn't have charged if avuanca would have put that the surfboard was going until denpasanr when we said that he had done it we looked stupid because he had just checked our bags on the tag until Bali but not the surfboard. So now I have to return and I'm working if I will have.to.end up paying.$1000 in.total.just for my surfboard.when this could have been avoided from the start if the cs rep of Avianca would have told.me the truth or know how to do his Job.

I would fly TACA over Spirit to Latin America whenever possible, that's for sure! I also found it kind of curious how the passengers from El Salvador to Miami on this flight were rather snobish and conceited.

Pros: "The poor cabin stewardess was working the whole time as it was a short flight."
Cons: "This is a horrible route, they charge you more than flying to Europe and give you a one hour ride in a cramped plane where you can't even bring in a carry-on. The cost is insane but is one of the reasons Wall Street loves Delta as they are racking in the profits for very little service."
Cons: "If you can get it he people at the desk to stop making announcements while there are announcements being made over the airport PA system that would be great. Especially when the person chosen to speak has a heavy accent and it’s competing with other announcements. My over 50 ears can’t make it out."

Pros: "So apparently I was told I was 1 min too late and the computer would not let them print a backache check. Further they were tellin me I couldn't get in my flight and have my luggage go later, but I understand because of security reasons. Finally it was 10 min til my flight left, I asked how about if I walk my bags through security check point; have TSA examine them and then they get placed in the plane like oversized carry ons normally do? Ding I struck a light bulb and they said yea why not. After a few phone calls later I was walking with my bags through TSA. It took me to think this up for Delta. A minute too late was the original response from the first agent. 1 minute! Not 10 not 5 she said the computer just got locked out. I was going to miss my flight for 1 min time restraint. The first agent didn't care and just blew me away. Thankfully the next agent tried. I had to throw away all my toiletries because TSA wouldn't let them through."

Pros: "They served a meal and it left on-time."
Cons: "I bought my ticket through Kayak and it included a layover in Panama City. However, it was being run on two separate airlines (United and Copa). Because of this, I could not check-in online. I arrived in San Jose to check in early since I had a 4am flight and was planning to sleep in the terminal. However, the Copa crew did not show up until 2/2:30am to begin checking people in at the counter. There was no other way I could get my ticket ahead of time and I probably would have stayed at a hotel and left early rather than arriving at 8pm and waiting for 6 hours in the open part of the airport."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Row 22 was not a charme. We did not get any drinks at all. Should not happen on a flight. No entertainment"

Pros: "Well considering I lost my wallet on the way to the airport and was unable to check in. I would have to say I didnt like it"
Pros: "Entertainment options for a long flight. Room seats."
Cons: "Only one crew member ensured passengers had plenty of hydration. A couple crew spent time on their phones & casually chatting while the one was doing her job.

Cons: "Boarding time was slightly late"
Cons: "Tightest seat I have experienced 90 minutes to get luggage at carousel Offered drinks only once"
Pros: "That I got to my destination safely and on time."
Cons: "There were two people working Sun Country desks so I almost missed my flight. Flight attendants were cranky. No food offered and I don't think they recycle.

Worst thing - I jumped through all the hoops so my small bag could be carried on instead of checked, and I then had to pay $40 to carry on instead of the $25 to check."
Cons: "There is none"
Cons: "This airline is impossible to contact both for reservation changes and their credit card service"

Cons: "I didn’t like the 40 minute wait in the freezing temperatures. The ticketing counters appeared to be under staffed. Very long lines"
Pros: "The crew was really great! The flight attendants were all very kind, courteous, and entertaining. It was really windy when we landed, so the landing was rough. The captain joked about it. We were seated right behind first class, so we had tons of room. All in all, a good flight"

Cons: "They delayed the flight (very first one of the morning) by over an hour, caused me to miss my connecting flight, which meant I had to stay overnight and take another flight. Extremely frustrating as they did nothing to help reschedule or reimburse. Use old planes, which don't have entertainment or outlets. Overall, very frustrated with the experience. I don't want to fly sun country again! (The flight on sun country going was terrible as well)"
Pros: "It was fast!"
Cons: "Flight delayed, customer service not very communicative"
Cons: "Three hour delay, had us sitting in the plane at the gate for an unreasonable amount of time, and took almost an hour to get my bag from baggage claim. I was supposed to be in New York at 11:30 and didn't leave the airport until 3:00 in the morning, so I got home closer to 4:00. The airport was empty, so I don't know why it would take so long for baggage claim. Complete lack of communication and service."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, friendly and helpful."
Pros: "the flight was fine."
Cons: "you charge for EVERYTHING including water?! really? and the food--- wow! expensive and not good. a little bitty half a sandwich Jimmy John with wilted lettuce... baggage fees? ridiculous!"

Pros: "Prompt, friendly!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. Had an aisle seat."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL."
Cons: "THE SEATS SEEM BROKEN- THE PAD SLIDES AROUND. IS THERE A SOLUTION TO THAT CRAPY WIRE THAT HOLDS THE SEAT BACK POCKET CLOSED? IT HITS US TALL GUYS IN THE KNEES AND IS A TRUE DETRACTION EVERY TIME. THE SEAT PAD WAS SOOOO FLAT- NO CUSHION LEFT."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and well done. Plane was clean."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. It started late and the gate agents (one in particular) seemed grumpy and frustrated. I have seen before that SunCounty boards First Class before families will strollers/infants. However, this was a flight to Florida so full of small kids. It would speed up boarding to get those people into the plane to set up car seats, small kids etc. Also, the boarding was hectic enough that the gate agent forgot to board small children, they did pre-boarding, first, exit row, then started with rear seats. There was confusion and all the families rushed the gate. could have been managed much better."
Pros: "Non-Stop to Liberia, Costa Rica! No more Delta flights through Atlanta for me! It was a fast 5 1/12 hr flight into Costa Rica. Overall Excellent experience with Sun Country to Costa Rica. The boarding was easy-no hassle- They were on time. Crew was mostly great and respectful. I was in coach-so can't speak for first class, but overall a great experience."
Cons: "Of course - have to pay for luggage now. But I was able to do all that online prior to going to the airport. Was hungry on the flight- had to buy $5 breakfast sandwich that wouldn't break them to give out. Similar to a Holiday Gas Station sandwich. It got me through. Lion's Tap burgers for purchase on the way home -not bad- again microwave gas station burger for $5. Better than a $10 salad in the airport. Don't they get people feel ripped off when charged more in the airport for the same thing cheaper outside the airport?? It's not highway robbery-its runway robbery. But all the airports and airlines do this. Not Sun Country exclusively. But hey- Sun Country-you could do this different!! Be the leader!!"
Cons: "I'm used to a meal on a flight of 3 hours or more. When booked it said 1 free bag. We were charged."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "IT TOOK 50 minutes to get our suitcase on arrival in Vancouver"
Pros: "Crew was great, boarded on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "Really miss the inflight tv screens, seats very narrow."
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"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants. Comfortable seating. Nothing really was bad about the flight. Attendants at departure as well as arrival were helpful and attentive to our needs."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Crew was fabulous."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hard."
Cons: "Crews were good"
Pros: "crew very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was friendly"
Cons: "Nothing. All good for a low cost fligh"
Pros: "The flight was short, and the flight attendant was quick to try to help."
Cons: "Checking in took forever, as did boarding, so we left ten minutes late. No big deal. However, the flight was hot. The air coming from the nozzles was warm and light. I spoke to a flight attendant and agreed it was hot, but all she could do was bring me water."
Pros: "The crew filled up my reusable cup instead of using a single use one for my drink. They were very friendly and great."
Cons: "A lot of single use plastics are used on the flight for food and such. It is very wasteful. It would be great is WestJet could find a way to lessen their plastic foot print"
Pros: "Pleasant staff great flight"
Cons: "that i paid to get a seat next to my brother and the plane was not full and people got to sit where they liked. it cost me more money for nothing."
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."
Cons: "Because of the discounted fare I was placed in rear seating at the very back of the plane and to change seats was to cost me $14"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed 17 minutes earlier. Bags arrived before I was in front of baggage area."
Pros: "- Great customer service - Positive energy - Friendly staff"
Cons: "- extensive delays - no leg room - crowded - no food on my flight"
Cons: "Super Cold airplane and it’s not the only west Ket that was freezing. the crew kept skipping my row for drinks for some reason. the landing was rough."
Cons: "Delayed over a hour"
Pros: "Everything!!! I loved!"
Cons: "Checking in at Airport very slow, I had a terrible experience even thought I spoke to them several times at checking counter. And missed my ride home as a consecuencia of arriving late."
Pros: "I like everything"
Pros: "All else was great."
Cons: "It was too hot on plane. Had all vents but still too hot and stuffy."
Pros: "Crew good, service good"
Cons: "Both flights delayed over 2 hours, missed connection so it took so I was in airports 13 hours instead of 6"
Pros: "What can you say -They were their usual great !"
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: "Good amount of leg room. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Not enough space in the overhead bins. Early morning flight offered no breakfast style foods, just lunch type."
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: "Not very much"
Cons: "West jet delay caused me to miss air cananda connection. They offered no help in rebookong/hotel vouchers"
Pros: "I love this direct flight from Palm Springs to Winnipeg Thank you WestJet"
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: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about this air line. Las 4 flight have been late..,,,,,,,,,"
Pros: "No movies, not sure whether I needed to Dow load something Did not have food"
Cons: "Very little to no leg room."
Pros: "The airplane being pretty small, boarding and getting off was fast. No issues or delays either."
Pros: "Staff at WestJet are the best!"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Cons: "Seated @ the back & disembarking at the back door. Quick, easy on a bright sunshine day."
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant, not full, on time and seats had electrical outlets and USB ports."
Cons: "They destroyed my checked luggage and refused to give me an adequate replacement. They also refused to cover for the resulting damages to my items."
Pros: "Flight and crew were good. Overall no complaints, just preferences..."
Cons: "Food - wish there were more options. Entertainment - I'm not big on downloading an app to watch tv/movies on wifi and feeling exposed using a public wifi. I'd rather it was a tv like JetBlue has on back of seats. Again, not a complaint, just a preference. I was happy with flight...ended up sleeping since no tv, lol."
Cons: "1.2 hr Late departure. Everything else OK."
Cons: "Il serait bien d'avertir plus à l'avance les passagers au sujet de l'application nécessaire pour l'entertainement ou permettre de l télécharger via le wifi de westjet"
Pros: "Free wine and beer."
Cons: "Our flight for Toronto on Sept. 5 , # WS589 was delayed of about 1 and half hour; so, me and about 20 other passengers missed our connection in Toronto. The crew said that Pearson airport was on a shut down due to severe thunderstorms. But the weather was nice and sunny when we arrived Toronto; in fact my connecting flight ( Hainan airlines HU 7995 had left 20 min. earlier- on time- for Bejing. The crew in Westjet plane told me that all airlines were delayed in Toronto airport due to bad weather , and so that I would not miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "mostly everything that an airline can offer is always on par !"
Cons: "seat sealction - I've booked in advice but seat selection is always a headache. I prefer to have front seats (closes to front in econly class, emergency area) but I got stuck all the way in the back by the washrooms. It would be amazing if on my way back to Calgary I can have a better option?"
Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."
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)."
Pros: "Luggage came fast. Car rental was great."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
Cons: "I was really tired. Long line getting into the USA section. Argh. Let's just say I was grumpy and wanted to get home. Staff wss really nice."
Cons: "They automatically gave me the window seat"
