Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "There was a delay. Moved my selected asile seat to a middle seat without notice."
Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."
Pros: "The flight attendants smiled from the moment we stepped on the plane until we stepped off. The flight was over 4 hrs long so that says a lot!I would like to especially mention Paula who went out of her way to make me comfortable. Also we were in the exit row so of course we had tons of leg room."
Cons: "Alaska Airlines is great to fly with, THE SEATTLE AIRPORT IS A NIGHTMARE TO TRAVEL THROUGH!!!Last week SEATTLE AIRPORT WAS UNPREPARED TO HANDLE the traffic,16 AIRCRAFT IN LINE WAITING FOR A GATE. Countless passengers Missed flights. Last night our pilot was instructed to Slow Down and still no gate!"

Cons: "No drink service - not even water."
Pros: "Leg room seems a bit more spacious than other flights. Very comfortable. Nice experience."
Pros: "Crew was nice, movies were fast"
Cons: "I could barley sit in my seat because the over weight man in the middle seat took a third of my seat with his body spilling over into my seat. I had to lean all the way to the right side so my back hurts really bad after I got off the plane. The angle I had to sit in is unacceptable and he should not be allowed to have a middle seat let alone one seat. He needed an extension just to buckle his belt."
Pros: "Nice comfy seats, leg room"
Cons: "Narrow aisles"
Pros: "Pilot was amazing- very smooth takeoff and landing. Food and drink service was prompt. We landed early."

Pros: "I liked the price / value. The plane was clean, flight attendants pleasant."
Pros: "Arrived on time and in one piece"
Pros: "Love the non stop flight. Wi Fi and ability to plug in were nice. and the plane wasn't fully booked, which made the flight more comfortable."
Cons: "the seats aren't comfortable. they sit too upright and don't recline enough to rest. by bottom and back became sore after about an hour, making the remaining several hours pretty tough."
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed a flight that was short and sweet."

Cons: "Customer service. Customer service. Custoner service."
Pros: "Cheap air fares"
Cons: "Could not use airline websites to select seats due to using a third party agent like kayak. Had to call both Alaska Air and Air Canada before I could secure seats."
Pros: "Super friendly staff, USB ports in every seat, didn’t have to wait for luggage."
Cons: "Gate change made close to boarding. One desk person acknowledged change & directed me to new gate. Never showed on big board. Then at gate 2 desk ladies insisted there was no change that morning & that I was just wrong. I barely made my flight."
Pros: "In Denver, the boarding process was well organized and directed by clear announcements and boarding lanes."
Cons: "In Seattle, the boarding process was chaotic and mismanaged. The ground staff gave confusing and ambiguous instructions that resulted in everyone forming a large, disorganized throng in front of the gate agent. It was as if they said "everyone get on the plane immediately, and we are only taking the first 30 people"."
Pros: "Boarding was so quick and easy"
Cons: "I paid for an upgrade seat with longer leg room, but it did not recline so was uncomfortable for the long flight. Note: there was no food or entertainment, so no rating"
Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"
Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."
Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"
Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."
Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."

Cons: "The staff at my connection in Seattle were not the friendliest."
Pros: "Love your direct flight to Santa Barbara.wish you had more than 1 daily."
Cons: "Long walk to terminal on return,glad it wasn't raining. I was in back . Crew was a little loud talking to each other on last stretch of flight. They kept opening and closing the overhead bins during the flight . I have no idea why ,but it was somewhat annoying."
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Pros: "Easy flight. No issues."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Cons: "I booked the flight which goes from PDX to Vancouver and Vancouver to ICN. I was going to take the Alaska Airline to go to Vancouver, but I couldn't board the flight because I didn't have a visa for Cannada. You should notice me if I need the visa or not when I booked this flight. Because of this, I should change the flight which took extra charge. Moreover, I lost my baggage between this situation."
The flight attendants were very helpful
Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "More seat room"

Cons: "Unfortunately had flights delayed which forced me to arrive home much later than originally planned."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow."
Pros: "Quick and smooth boarding. Crew was very pleasant and welcoming. Temperature was for the most part comfortable. Quick disembarkment"

Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"

Pros: "No wifi couldn’t do any work"
Cons: "Was looking forward to completing some work but the wifi never came on."
Pros: "it was easy to navigate ."
Pros: "Ind-atl flight was absolutely amazing i couldn’t find really anything wrong with the flight besides spacing for seats"
Cons: "Spacing with seats"
Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."
Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats Oddly shaped overhead bins, unable to put standard sized bags overhead, meanwhile they fit in planes of other major airline companies such as American Airlines. No food options, only sweet biscuit which contains soy and milk."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "Loved that they had access to connecting info on board"
Pros: "Clean plan and efficient boarding procedure."
Cons: "Horrible delay. Took off almost two hours post originally scheduled time."
Cons: "I could not check in on the kiosk and I had to go to two agents before they could find my reservation. The lines were extremely long and the customer service was poor."
Pros: "The costumer services."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Nice entertainment offerings on the Indy to MSP flight"
Cons: "My original flight from IND to LGA was cancelled due to weather and I was rebooked for the next day. I was forced to spend a night in a hotel near the airport. Then my flight the next day kept being delayed, first 5 min, then 20, then 40, etc until 2.5 hrs. Since the delays kept increasing, I decided to rebook on another flight with a very tight connection in Detroit--the only other option. When my flight arrived, the other fight was already boarding and I ran to make it. Luckily I got to the gate in time, just before the door closed. The original flight ended up with a 3.5 hr delay!!! That is unacceptable."
Pros: "Loved the onboard entertainment and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I travelled w/ one adult and two infants internationally and could not book the infants' tickets online had to do it over the phone. When we got to the airport we had to pay $255 for 5 bags, that's almost another ticket."
Pros: "Friendly service. On-time."
Cons: "No tv's in airplane."
Pros: "Frontline staff were nice."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled last minute. Instead of a direct flight to start vacation, we ended up with a five hour layover in Atlanta. And to top it all off, they tried to double charge us for a checked bag fee."
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly crew, great service"
Cons: "I liked it all!"
Missed flight due the delays
Cons: "Because of Boeing disaster did not go to Halifax but were sent by Westjet to TO and then on with Air France. Boarding areas in TO are a long way away (lot of walking) and customs in TO is frustrating and takes a long time."
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."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "We could have used more legroom between the seats."
Pros: "Great crew, very accommodating for a small and short flight"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and were having a good time during the flight, which was nice to see."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets supplied, luckily I had my own otherwise I would have been miserable. Worst surprise was that there was no food provided. On a long haul flight that was surprising, they should clearly say that on booking. There were snacks available for purchase, but not great."
Cons: "Total rip off. I won't be flying West Jet again if it can be avoided"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was very good."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have coffee on the flight. All they had to offer was a snack and a glass of water."

Cons: "More water and a tv like air Canada"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "The airport staff was horrendous."
Pros: "noone booked in the seat beside me allowed for more room."
Cons: "food (ran out of items I wanted) seats are mediocre no entertainment stewardess forgot my cream for the coffee - too busy chatting with another passenger."
Pros: "Quick, easy, comfortable. No complaints"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin."
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work on laptop - only on phone or tablet. Westjet seating is tight."
Pros: "The crew was great overal. Great sport and attitude with humor."
Cons: "The flight in Ottawa was delayed twice which made me change my plans twice. The plane was also a little cold heading to Toronto. Otherwise the help from Paul getting checked in was fantastic. He made the bad situation of a delay worth it just talking with him and apologizing for the delay with true empathy . Thank you Paul"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "That westjet q400 is an awful aircraft with terrible slimline seats"
Pros: "Crew and staff are pleasant."
Cons: "There was a typo in my reservation (either a WJ problem or a Kayak problem). As a result I couldn't do an online checkin and ended up getting a middle seat at the airport."
Pros: "counter staff were friendly, courteous. helpful. Flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "prop- jet was loud & bumpy while on the ground at takeoff"
Pros: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and efficient"
Cons: "The plane is cramped and a noisey propeller model."
Pros: "The friendliness, the options through the app with movies etc"
Cons: "Need more leg room on board"
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: "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: "I went through customs and then walked via escalators and moving walk ways to b4. It took me almost a hour. I was the last to board I am sure And had to collect my own luggage and take it from one point to another. I am 70. thank god, when I got on the plane I sat in 3a and was offered a free glass of wine. halleluya. I was exhausted Toronto airport is always a nightmare. I travel a lot and will avoid this airport if I can. I do like West jet but Delta /west jet connection means I have to take my bag from one place to another and I walked miles and could have missed my flight. I am tired. I am going to bed"
Pros: "Korean air is very efficient."
Cons: "We had to rent a car to get to Ottawa because West Jet had cancelled all their flights due to weather. All Air Canada flights were operating. We waited in line for 2 hours at the airport for West Jet to tell us that we needed to call them regarding a refund. We called them and were on hold for an hour and 45 minutes. Then we were told we had to call the travel agent...we on hold for 2 hours. We then called Korean air and they told us they couldn’t contact West Jet-no one knew what the value of the flight from Toronto to Ottawa was. We were only provided with a refund of $4 (for the taxes) when it cost us $280 to rent a car to get to Ottawa. I will never book a flight with West Jet again."
Cons: "Boarding outside with no notice or warning"
Cons: "Our hour-long flight home from Toronto to Ottawa was delayed by two days. WestJet provided a hotel voucher and food vouchers for one day but refused to refund us for a car rental that would get us home in time. While we made our own way home, we were emailed to say that our flight home was delayed twice more."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and how accommodating they were of me and of their guests!"
Cons: "There was quite a delay on my flight and I didn’t get an email to let me know there was a delay. Because I happened to go to check in earlier, I happened to noticed the delay. I wasn’t happy about not getting an email. I called West Jet to find out about the delay and it took approximately an hour to speak to someone. When I did, the delay was explained as weather related and the reason for not getting an email was because they hadn’t gotten to it yet I believe. I wasn’t happy with that as a reply. The flight was then delayed again by several minutes. I would have appreciated some form of compensation as I was going to get a lift home from the airport and ended up having to pay for a taxi as I was coming in so late. In all other flights, I know west jet to be quite an accommodating airline. The crew was great, I simply didn’t appreciate how the delay was handled."
Pros: "Got a window seat Good deal on price from kayak"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hrs Lost my luggage and no word on when it will be returned Never told us about why delayed"
Cons: "Didn't fly on the day I was supposed to fly due to delays. I had to figure out for myself that I wasn't going to make my connection and thus I went back home. We agreed to itinerary for the next day that had a 2+ hour wait at la Guardia and yet I still almost missed the N.Y. to Tampa flight due to delays out of toronto. Had to sprint from one terminal to the other. In Toronto we sat on the tarmac for 90 mins, and this was after dealing with security and other issues with checkin before i even got on the plane. For example, it was difficult to explain that i had already paid for my checked bag the day before. As a result I never got a chance to eat the entire day. And then my bag didn't get to Tampa until later that night anyways. Although the individual staff members were all very nice, there were institutional flaws that made two days very frustrating. I have some sort of debilitating delay on more than half my flights over the last few years, and rarely is there ever an explanation or compensation."
Pros: "Kayak was great to book through. Very simple. Plane ride there was great."
Cons: "Plane ride home wasn't good due to the airplane propellers being louder then usual and noisy, a little unsettling."
Pros: "Friendly people+ great service"
Pros: "It was on time. Quick to board."
Cons: "I’m used to entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment selection is lacking."
Pros: "Quick, efficient and funny friendly staff"
Cons: "Delays Boarding: boarding from both doors: back door and front door, but no direction from the crew to anyone. Ended up with passengers trying to get in the front from the back and passengers trying to get to the back from the front. This created another extra 15 minutes delay when everyone were stuck in the middle...The rest of the passengers waited outside in Canadian winter cold. On a flight already late."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "I like that I got the plus seat for no extra charge."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Multiple delays totalling up to 2.5 hours but only updated 15 minutes as it reached the time of take off. Minimal heads up prior"
Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Flight staff"
Cons: "Had to disembark. So left and arrived much later than planned."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. However it was not really within their control."
Pros: "Always on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Better snacks like porter"
Cons: "No entertain system"

Pros: "The gate and air crew were very friendly. Flight right on time."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
If we could get the wireless working on these flights that would be awesome
Cameron who checked our luggage was very nice and helpful.
Had 4 flights, all of them got delayed
Everything went very well. The crew and flight attendants were awesome. A 1hour and 20 minute flight. Enjoyed it, one step closer to home! 😃
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full, they allowed everyone to spread out in the plane"
Pros: "They were fine. Seemed really short with a mom and her children but other than that, average."
Cons: "Well, my flight was delayed for an hour and a half and it seemed like the airlines mistake, not weather. It's going to make me over 2 his late to a concert, which is the main reason I came here. So hopefully they let me in, or I just spent $300 for nothing."
Pros: "The entire crew and the landing"
Pros: "I liked that the armrest came up and that the walkway was a bit wider than other airplanes."
Cons: "Larger seats"
Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom, but passenger in next seat allowed small child to run back and forth in the legroom. Nothing was done when observed by crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant was outstanding. Flexible. Good sense of humor and very professional"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay outbound and a 9 hour delay inbound. On the inbound flight I was put up in a nice hotel for the day and given a $30 meal voucher. However I missed my connecting flights and had to be put up when I got back to the States. Despite getting in at 10pm I was put on a 5am flight."
Cons: "Late. Again. For no good reason."
Cons: "More leg room, more attentive to customers with disabilities"
Cons: "Well the flight was delayed out of Indy and then due to some emergency at Ohare, we taxied for at least 30 minutes causing me to be late for my connecting flight and now I'm still here waiting for my new flight which is delayed."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The lady behind me was a bit of a crank / wouldn’t allow me to recline the seat / kept pushing it up. REALLY , that 3 inches was affecting you . SMH"
Cons: "The plane was not full. I sat in row 32 with two people on either side of me. In the row in front of me there were no people in it. What’s up with that? We also sat on the tarmac at the time that we were supposed to be deplaning. We were waiting on another plane to back out of the gate for 10 minutes. What’s up with that?? American Airlines, get your act together!!!!!"
Pros: "Row to myself. Big plane."
Cons: "Still need more wgroom as someone over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Super great flight attendant in first class. Very friends and beautiful smile. Nice to see on stressful days traveling. Nice job!"
Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"
Pros: "Boarding the plane was incredibly fast. As for the crew, I got an iffy energy from one of the crew members whom I felt was trying to play on my intelligence."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight took off and landed close to the time it was supposed to."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable, first check d bag could be included instead."
Pros: "It was as good as one has gotten used to"
Cons: "It was only as good as one has gotten used to"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The snack selection and lack of entertainment"
Pros: "I got to sneak into the economy plus seats and no one said anything."
Cons: "Flight attendants clearly did not like each other and argued constantly. Sub-par coffee (even by international standards)."
Pros: "On time, even with de-icing. Very empty flight, so lots of room to spread out."
Cons: "The older md80’s that AA is still flying are really showing their age. It will be nice when they update their fleet."
Pros: "I did like that "new plane" smell. Good pretzels."
Cons: "Plane was too new; computer system hadn't been set right. Left 45 minutes late, though made up some lost time in the air. Very rude passengers (obviously not the airline's fault, I know). Everyone thinks they should be the first to get off the plane!"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Would you like a beverage? Not unless you asked and that was only if you could get her attention. Truly felt like a second class citizen in this fight"
Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."
Pros: "Quick boarding and luggage pickup."
Cons: "Mediocre staff. In my experience United is more friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"
Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."
Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."
Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"
Cons: "Flight was late, no info why, when landed in DCA NO GATE AVAILABLE - and that is past 10 PM."

Pros: "Great service, good window seat, smooth flight"
Cons: "No music/radio at my seat"
Pros: "The flight attendants on both flights were very friendly"
Cons: "They changed my flight without telling me about it. My first flight was at 8 but my plane was late. When I went to the ticket counter they changed my flight and didn't tell me when I was getting to my destination"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "American has gone to these thin seats so that they can cram more cattle into the back. They are absolutely the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit in, and unless you're willing to pay even more for "premium" seats, you won't even have enough space to sit. I will never, never, ever give American Airlines another penny."
Cons: "I didn't like how we were 20 minutes early yet after 1.5 hours of sitting on the Tarmac that I missed my connection by a few minutes. I wish the crew hadn't falsely informed the passengers onboard that the other planes would be delayed with the communication issue @ Reagan (DC)."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Pros: "The crew on board the air craft was great"
Cons: "The Indianapolis to JFK trip was the first of three legs. My bags were only checked to JFK. I have a badly broken ankle and needed a wheel chair. I could not manage my luggage and crutches. It forced me to take a taxi to the international terminal, then ask strangers for help with my luggage once I got there. I am extraordinarily displeased!!!! I will not fly American again."
Pros: "Easy boarding, im about 6'3 so i was a bit uncomfortable being in the middle seat (not airlines fault) overall good first experience."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to sit by my spouse being my first time on an airplane. Wasnt an option?"
Pros: "As always, the staff was courteous and efficient. I never have any problems when I fly American Airlines. I often book my flights specifically for American Airlines when I can."
Pros: "Made it to LGA"
Cons: "Didn't make it home"
Cons: "Very narrow seats. I am not very tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me"
Pros: "I liked the smooth ride, and engaging captain. We didn't hit much turbulence, even if it is uncontrollable. Takeoff and landing was smooth and put my worries about flying to rest."
Pros: "Fast entry... Great crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, crew in general was disorganized, most usb charging ports weren’t working, touchscreen is very outdated"
Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"
Pros: "Great flight crew and smooth landing"
Cons: "Pretzels are not a good snack"
Pros: "Nothing good to say for this flights overall."
Cons: "Spent over two hours on the plane/tarmac waiting for take off. Air Canada sucks."
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."
Pros: "Service counter staff was helpful to confirm seating although I did not like being put on standby. This happens too often with Air Canada."
Cons: "Stop the overbooking!!!!!"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"
Pros: "Super easy flight with no hiccups"
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Cons: "Mechanical issue with the plane. Sat on the tarmac for 2 hours without regular updates or any information. Missed connection as a result. Have been traveling for 19 hours still not in Amsterdam"
Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"
Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."
Pros: "Access to their entertainment (movie, tv) channels was appreciated. I did not have this option on my departing flight which was the same duration."
Cons: "The plane cabin was surprisingly hot when we boarded and for most of the flight, though it did become bearable. Had to struggle to take my jacket off when seated (as did others)."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."
Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."
Pros: "Everything, good food, good people, good times"
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew are very proffesional."
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Pros: "Same as anove"
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."
Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"
Pros: "A United Airlines employee assisted me by answering questions that I had. This same employee actually came to find me when the Air Canada ticket gate opened early and knew I was waiting to get my boarding pass. Greatly appreciated.."
Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."
Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."
Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"
Cons: "There was no access to movies."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the seats and how fast the boarding and take off was."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not offered peanuts during my flight. The last time they offered free peanuts"
Pros: "The flight was right on time, which meant that we made our connection to London with time to spare, and our checked bags made the connection, too."
Cons: "Air Canada canceled our originally booked flight and substituted a terrible connection. But we contacted viama and suggested an alternative, which viama got Air Canada to accept. So, in the end, everything worked out beautifully."
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"
Pros: "For someone that hasn't flown for 10+ years, the airports at Toronto and Indianapolis were extremely easy to navigate, the staff pointed me in the right direction, and the flights had no delays"
Cons: "The only available flights were tiny planes, but they weren't very long trips, so it didn't matter much."
