I prepared myself for the 4 hour flight, but if you had access to tv or radio maybe.
Cons: "There was absolutely nothing "first class" about this flight. Cramped seats, baggage fees, terrible boarding procedures... I've experienced better service on economy flights. Never again with Delta/Westjet."
Cons: "Tiny seats with limited legroom. No entertainment provided."
Pros: "Flight was cramped and plane was small, but the crew were nice."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Seat were comfortable."
Cons: "Could of had a better selection of moves."
Cons: "due to weather a pile of flights were cancelled, we had to call West Jet and get re-routed"
Pros: "Good food choices well prepared(even roll& breakfast croissant were excellent) An outstanding premium economy experience n stark contrast to Air France and other NA Carriers. Good wine list great service. Nice service touches like linen for table tops"
Cons: "Amenities on Asian carriers are more"
Pros: "We arrived where we wanted to go"
Cons: "Separated my son and I into middle seats. Made us sit on the tarmac for 30 minutes due a completely predictable issue. We should have been allowed to stay at the gate. Seating is horribly cramped. Less that friendly flight attendants. Arrived late on a red eye in perfect weather. Otherwise delightfu"
Cons: "More than 1 drink served"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was friendly"
Cons: "Nothing. All good for a low cost fligh"
Pros: "The service was excellent and got help with the infant, friendly staff"
Cons: "Your website did autofillmwith the passenger name and I had to pay extra to get the bame changed. Pretty bad. Not using your site ever. Thanks"
Pros: "The crew members were very nice and wonderful to speak with. Food was great for airplane food."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi/electronics was down on the plane so we couldn’t watch any movies, but I know that’s not really anyone’s fault. No big deal."
Cons: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."
Cons: "no refund at all worst outcome"
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "Airport staff went above and beyond to get my mother through the airport. We had a tight transfer and they helped us make it to the gate on time."
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"
Pros: "It was clean and on time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Pros: "On bird staff"
Cons: "Pay for WiFi"
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wheel chair services was horrible. 8 passengers needed assistance and there were 2 assistants to aid them. This took over two hours as they attended to passengers with connecting flights first. It was frustrating waiting 2hrs after the flight landed to collect luggage and leave airport."
Pros: "Good quick boarding, left on time. Quick luggage at destination."
Cons: "Getting told to leave the plus section while waiting for the washroom. Too cautious with the tiniest bit of turbulence and the seatbelt sign left on for probably 30 minutes too long."
Pros: "trip was fairly smooth, flight was on time. Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Trying to carry travel on luggage up the aisles is very awkward when the plane is already full or half full of people. seating should be done in a bit more order. back 5 rows, next 5 etc. Crew should have a better knowledge of the land masses flying over."
Pros: "Loaded plane quickly and efficiently. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Had long wait at gate in Calgary"
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "One of the flight attendents was rude. The head rests on the chairs didn't work. The chairs where uncomfortable. The plane was delayed. The drink selection was poor. The overall general westjet hospitality was just way below average and I felt like the company is turning so cheap I was worried they may have double sold my seat on the plane."
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Cons: "The snacks were awful."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Very disciplined and hard-working crew did their best to keep everything under control and moving on schedule. Boarding was busy but fairly well organized considering."
Cons: "Flight had an abundance of minors and babies at no fault of anyone, just unfortunate. Lots of crying, screaming, fidgeting and puking. Customers were pretty impatient in the early morning as well which didn't help the situation. Not sure if snacks or refreshments (other than water) we're handed out in a 4.5 hour flight as well."
Pros: "Liked that boarding was easy and fast."
Cons: "That the plane didn’t have TVs on all the headseats"
Pros: "Boarding agents were welcoming and helpful. They offer to take an earlier flight. Check-in process fast and easy. They delayed the connection in Toronto, so We did not miss our flight."
Cons: "We had to wait about 2 hours in the plane before take off and 30 min. after landing because of weather and a lack of efficient communication. That was a very frustrating and exhausting flight. Not enough space and on westjet connect on board."
Pros: "The flight was delayed several times. We spend all day at the airport and the airline only gives us really bad excuses. I will never again flight with this airline. The flight from hell.."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat- no padding"
Pros: "The staff are always super friendly on Westjet."
Cons: "The entertainment system is terrible. It does not work on my laptop and they sell out of ipads quickly."
Pros: "Plane was comfy and on time"
Cons: "No west jet connect or in seat entertainment. Had to rent. Seems like a money grab"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The plane was old so no entertainment, food was not good, could not sit in area waiting for flight, no chairs left and I was 5ere. Very early. Travelling is not great anymore, the crew try’s their best I know."
Pros: "The crew were polite friendly great customer service"
Pros: "The most amazing flight crew. The flight was very cold and one of the flight attendants surprised me with a tea to make sure I was warm. I fly frequently with many different airlines and West Jet ALWAYS has the best flight crew."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Pros: "Flight on time and friendly service."
Cons: "It was freezing cold, and blankets now cost $4.00! So I spent the whole red eye shivering, even in my sweater! I could feel the cold air hitting me the whole flight. The boarding was confusing, with no organized lines or anything. Some of the announcements were too quiet to hear."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"
There was no entertainment or even a glass of water. But to be fair it was a short flight . I just remember the good old days when service was a lot better.
all good seemless boarding
friendlier flight attendants.
By the time we got to our gate after check in, our flight had been delayed enough for us to miss our connecting flight. I attempted to rebook our flight via the AA app, but it wouldn’t let me choose a flight until the following day. I went to the desk to ask for help, (there was no one else at the desk that needed help and there wasn’t a flight boarding at the time) and when I explained what was going on I was very curtly told “Don’t do that! Call this number!” and she threw a postcard with a phone number on it at me. When I tried the number, it wouldn’t connect, I only got beeping on the other end. I returned to the desk, where fortunately, another employee was able to get me seats on a flight later that evening. When we landed, our original connection was also so delayed that we were able to catch it and fortunately, the employee there was super helpful in getting us seats on that flight again. However, I continued to get notifications for the evening flight that we would have taken and it too, was very delayed.
Connecting through CLT has become the new ATL. For whatever reason going through Charlotte is causing delays. We got to do better!
Cons: "Notified better for the reason why the flight was cancelled."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding. I have always thought they should load the back of the plane first, but I don't think that will ever happen!"
Cons: "We get it about the masks! Between the airport and the airline we hear it 100 times. Taking it down to 50 would be nice."
Cons: "Passengers need to DISTANCE 6' and keep their masks on. Which I realize is put of the hands of American. Appreciate the fresh white bag with a bottle of water and crackers. Thank you."
Pros: "A little more leg room than the next leg of our flight."
Cons: "The seat from DFW to SLC was designed for people who have a sever slouch. Very uncomfortable seating position that isn’t anatomically correct."
Pros: "crew kept hitting my arm with cart and butt. imnot obese at all...…..they never apologized. too small...…………...squeezed in"
Pros: "The idea of having inflight entertainment."
Cons: "1. Crew moved my luggage without asking, 2. Sat in window seat and it was easily 85 degrees, 3. Seat is not made for someone 6’2”. Neck support falls at shoulders which was super uncomfortable, 4. Inflight entertainment worked for a bit then didn’t."
Pros: "Crew was courteous; greeted entering and departing the plane. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Increase leg room and widen seating- way too narrow in width and uncomfortable. Flight, although it arrived on schedule, was unable to taxi to the to dock at gate due to lack of ground crew. I have experienced on-time arrivals only to wait on the tarmac until ground crew arrives is unacceptable."
Pros: "Most people had movies and other things to entertain themselves with via rear seat displays."
Cons: "My rear seat display never worked, though I complained about it at least 6 times during the flight. Nothing was offered to aid or fix the problem besides the stewardess saying she'd reset it several times."
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle and the plane was extremely uncomfortable for a 4 hour flight"
Cons: "Flights got delayed"
Cons: "The crew was great, but AA needs to step it up with comfort and amenities!"
Pros: "Quick flight once departed"
Cons: "Maintanence delay led to plane switch"
Pros: "on time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "small seating, freezing cold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The 1st class flight attendant refused to bring a glass of champagne, I was sitting five feet away so I could see she was just fiddling with things with her back to me. I asked the other flight attendant to relay my request to her, again she ignored me. This was ten minutes before takeoff..."
Cons: "I’m still on the plane and there’s this poor sick dude across from me who is sneezing and snorting and spewing phlegm everywhere!!! I feel so sorry for him bc he’s got muscular dystrophy or something and it’s uncontrollable. But I also feel sorry for the poor little girl next to him! I am about to puke it’s so gross and he’s 4 peeps away from me! Ugh, I HATE germy planes!!!!! Not sure people should be allowed to travel without masks in this condition."
Pros: "No complaints honestly. Crew was friendly, boarding was painless, and flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was old, but it didn’t really impact my flight at all."
Pros: "Polite. Clean. Nice business class."
Cons: "Would like more Western food."
Pros: "Roomie seat"
Cons: "Made me Put my purse in back of plane"
Pros: "Comfortable seat and environment, great food, smiling helpful staff"
Pros: "Quick time in boarding and exiting plane in Charlotte."
Cons: "Frustrating to pay extra for priority boarding so they don't require that my carry on be checked which requires me to take half of my luggage and shove it in my backpack to make sure that it lands with me."
Cons: "Having my 5am oneway flight cancelled 3 hrs before flight time resulting in rebooking with layover and tripple the time it would have taken to get to my destination"
Pros: "Stewardess was really nice, friendly. Made me feel welcome and took good care of us"
Pros: "Smooth ride."

Cons: "Crew a little slow flight departed later all wwll"
Pros: "Snacks and beverage"
Pros: "The plane was late and we could not catch our other flight connection so we had to wait 2 1/2 hours from the one"
Cons: "Tight seating. Stewardess over the speaker was very hard to understand. Not a smooth landing."
Cons: "Nothing, really"
Cons: "The parking garage is confusing, but worth the extra money to park there."
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight so I had more legroom, since I didn't have a person sit beside me on both flights. The flights arrive on time. Boarding was organized, quick and effective."
Cons: "Flight attendant provided a snack to everyone and forgot to offer a snack to me. There were children on both flights, kicking my seat through 60% of the flight. There was not entertainment provided for brief flights and the snack selection was mediocre."
Pros: "The boarding agent in Jacksonville, FL was a spirited, beautiful woman. She had everyone in the terminal cheer all the soldiers on our flight. And was very helpful to me getting a seat closer to the door as I was having horrible spasms in my back. She is what AMERICAN Airlines should be to all customers. Gate B47 on 9/30."
Pros: "Over all wonderful!"
Pros: "Easy not very busy airports makes boarding easy. Pay extra for seat but I can choose where to sit+++ Cost was very favorable for flight"
Pros: "That it finally took off and landed."
Cons: "Everything else! American is getting worst by the day."
Pros: "Plenty of room for carry-on bags"
Cons: "Charlotte airport was a zoo due to delays of slights coming in but all outgoing flights were on time so many connections including mine were missed"
Pros: "well, everything was fine but it was a tiny plane so there wasn't any entertainment and it was a short flight so there wasn't any food."
Pros: "Great flight crew."
Cons: "Being charged at the ticket area for one bag and finding out at the gate it is complimentary."
Cons: "I've been waiting a total of 6 hours so far. My plane was delayed yesterday and they sent me home, which was a 2 hour drive plus car rental. I came back this morning only to find I'm delayed again for another 4 hours. I'm a patient man but this was a bit to much even for me. This is my first written complaint I've ever had with any business"
Cons: "I tooka trip to Jacksonville Florida and the flight was 2 hours late because they had no flight crew. Guess what on my return flight it was also late about 2 hours. Is this the new standard."
Truly dreadful. Low cost and low quality.
Cons: "Food service was awful. They ran out of options and only had one choice by time got toward middle /back of the plane. This happened both ways. So if your seated toward the rear bring your own food and snacks if needed."
Pros: "Crew good, plane clean."
Cons: "Seats very cramped."
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Cons: "Error on kayak.com resulted in me losing approx. £600 and having to take the issue to the small claims court."
Pros: "It was just on time."
Cons: "The seats are very small hence not comfortable at all."
Pros: "The crew were very nice. Liked the food."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that there was no Wi-Fi access. Seat 40 DEFG doesn't feel comfortable because people were just walking in front of us."
Pros: "Very special kind flight attendant went out of her way to help us catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Missed my connection to Amsterdam in London because flight was delayed in New York. Flight from Amsterdam cancelled the night prior to departure. Rebooked on a flight that was highly inconvenient. No compensation from BA for stress, inconvenience and wasted time."
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELED"
Pros: "Wonderful flight! Excellent, extremely friendly service! Could not have been better!"
Pros: "Have providee upstairs seat unfortunately need pay for it. Ice cream so delicious."
Cons: "Food. Uncomfortable seat for 11+hours flight."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. They had no confirmation of the booking even though it had been done a month earlier. Called the customer service and they kept directing me to go figure things out with the airport staff. It was a very frustrating experience. Took almost 4 hrs to confirm that the flight had been paid for."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We got delayed for 2h. Also,I traveled with BA before and I received an eye sleeping mask and a thooth brush, but this time those items were not provided. The blanket was smelling quite bad."
Cons: "Announcement was made that flight was delayed for at least two hours and that delay might be longer or might be cancelled. Desk staff specifically said they would not help rebook until the 2 hour delay had passed. I bought a ticket on Delta amd actually flew to London."
Pros: "Good food and service once on flight and again fixed connections before landing"
Cons: "Terrible boarding experience. Rude gate workers and almost two hour delay because of it"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Cons: "I really couldn't move with the two fat pigs seated next to me as I had a window seat."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In Dubai, British Air won't allow you check in more than three hours prior to flight time. Since you can't check in, you can't go through security. Since you can't go through security, you can't get to the actual terminal (where all the stores, restaurants, lounges, etc are). Therefore, if you arrive at the airport too early. you're stuck in the outer holding area prior to the check in area. Nothing to do. Nowhere to go. Still weighted down with all your bags. A real bummer. Once you're allowed to check in, it takes about 30 minutes to get to the real terminal (check in, emigration, security, train ride, etc). The flight starts boarding one hour prior to departure. This leaves about 90 minutes to make it through the entire terminal and get to the gate. Any extra time can be spent looking at all the things you could have enjoyed if you could have checked in earlier. Since nobody including British Air told this in advance, we ended up twiddling our thumbs for eleven hours in the outer holding area."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. The pilot offered a look at the flight deck which made my husband so happy."
Cons: "I wanted a little more leg room. When the chair in front of me was declined I could barely move."
Cons: "The entertainment system is outdated and the touchscreen was poor"
Pros: "Oh my gosh.... I had the best flight ever. I wanted to be in Business Class, but the flight was so full, but when I sat down, there was an EMPTY SEAT next to me. What a beautiful thing. Flight was great, quiet and comfortable. Boarding was great and I enjoyed the my flight. Thank you:)"
Cons: "There was no food from the declared list. One bacon bun took 40 min to prepare."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "No refreshments (not even coffee or tea) on an international flight. I expect that from EasyJet but not BA."
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "It is a very good flight i seen. The flight was timely. Landing was very good."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. Service was wonderful and the food was good."
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized with only signs showing for priority boarding. In flight entertainment did not work for first half of flight. Once it began to work a little, there was no notification on how to use it since it was still not working properly."
Pros: "The entertainment was about all that was good"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Seats were uncomfortable and very dirty Cabin crew was short staffed Food was the worst I've ever had on BA and they ran out of chicken before getting half the plane fed. Cabin crew that was there was rude to passengers to the point some just ignored the cabin crew. Only served drinks 3 times on a 9 hour flight I've flown BA multiple times and this was by far the worst flight I've ever had with BA. Very disappointed they have gone downhill so much"
Pros: "Whenever they transferred me to Iberia airways"
Cons: "Departure ticket problem (they were never issued) - delayed flight from Madrid to London -missed my connection -delayed flight from London to atl -sadistic and uninformed staff at the London airport, they literally laughed at my face! -stuck in D.C. For the night because there are no more connections to atl due to (again) delayed flight. -outdated aircraft. -no available internet -not even phone chargers. Never will fly with British airways or buy ticket through kayak."
Cons: "The metal boxes below the seats mean that the little space allowed to a person is now all the more clipped. My backpack wouldn't even fit under the seat. My knees are already pressed up against the chair in front of me, now there's nowhere for me to stuff my feet even."
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable. Again, no free wifi in the XXI century. Hello !!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants really are nice folks"
Cons: "1. Bought ticket via kayak chicago to prague, so I got outgoing trip on British airways but they codeshare it out to Aer Lingus. Unfortunately, these dumbos haven't figured out that no matter what the gyrations they do, I still want to be able to pick my seat beforehand. Nada. Not possible online. And forget calling aer lingus 800 number. called twice and was on hold for 30 min each time, they dont bother answering. 2. At airport, I was willing to pay extra for a good seat because of the issues above, so they said they would help me out. Ha - the manager who purportedly was helping me out gave me a seat up front next to a shrieking infant and behind a bassinet (he knew exactly what he was doing but didnt care). They really lie and think we're idiots. 3. Same thing for flight from dublin to prague. This time last row next to toliets Dont fly aer lingus if you dont book directly with them, same for british airways I looked at BA's website - they do let you book a seat in advance but you must pay something for every single seat. Crazy. There are no free seats"
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
Pros: "The seats on this little plane were more comfortable than the huge double decker plane."
Cons: "Seats on 747 recline back way too far. Could not enjoy my flight back from London with the guy in front of me reclined back so far. Was forced to recline my seat all the way back as well if I wanted to watch anything. I guess it's OK if you are on an overnight flight and just want to sleep. Everything else was great though."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Pros: "I have nothing more to say about British Airways, What I have to say about British Airways is Excellent.In terms of customs services they are number one in the whole world."
Cons: "The diabetic meals lacked variety and there was no choice. I was given a chicken dish with potatoes and mushrooms for the first meal and then given another chicken dish with rice for the second . Unlike other passengers I was not offered a choice. Both meal had a high carbohydrate load as they came with a separate bread bun . The first meal had peaches for dessert but my second meal offering had no substitute for the cake given to other passengers. The snack box contained sweet and salty popcorn,salted crisps and malteasers which are to be avoided by diabetics . Overall my dietary needs were poorly serviced by BA on this flight."
Pros: "crew was great, entertainment was also great and service was solid."
Cons: "seats, while roomy, were a bit hard"
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "No access to any lounge services. Food selection and quality significantly behind competitors. Does not just the price charged."
Pros: "flight departure and arrival were early. check in was easy even though I arrived at the airport late due to weather."
Cons: "extra baggage and overweight fees are excessive"
Cons: "Only frustrating thing was that i missed my flight due to traffic and poor uber service. When i got to the airport i wasn't allowed to check in. This caused me to be charged a $275.00 late fee for my ticket and my friends. Since i lost my phone when it fell out of my pocket onto the train tracks as i entered the heathrow express i wasn't able to transfer funds to pay for the $550.00 worth of ticket transfer fees. It was a huge issue but eventually it was sorted. Not knowing if you will be able to get back to your county or not is a very stressful experience. Wish i could get my $550.00 back. I thought those charges were pretty steep. My name is Joseph A. Iaquinto Jr. My flight was originally booked for 6pm from london heathrow to JFK on 12/12/2016. My email and paypal are both firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "The journey was quite good, and so was the crew. Always with a smile. The seats were comfortable and broad. Nothing had that aeroplane smell. The inflight entertainment was also pretty basic and good."
Cons: "They took forever to start the boarding. The flight was atleast 40 mins late."
Pros: "Airplane used on the way back home trip (LHR-DFW). Much newer and clean and better seats confort"
Cons: "Airplane and crew on the trip from CUN to LGW. Looked old, crew was not very helpful and polite and food was well below average."
Pros: "On time and nice."
Pros: "Easy flight to Athens"
Cons: "Rude agents on the ground in London were very unprofessional making comments about American travelers."
Cons: "Very very late. So much for British punctuality."
Cons: "Seating was not comfortable."
