Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Cons: "I find the planes are far to compact and its really hard if you have a long flight. The body becomes stiff and really sore from not being able to move about much."
Cons: "baggage tag system at CDG Pairs was lame"
Cons: "The airplane is small... the seats are very small."
Pros: "All was good, also of note is the flight was not full"
Cons: "Entertainment aka movies.. this was an older plane - should have brought a book as I’m used too movie screens"
Pros: "crew was very friendly"
Cons: "seat no so comfy"
Pros: "Crew was great. I was able to watch my favourite CBC shows due to the screen on the seat in front."
Cons: "Nothing really, I paid $500 for the return flight and feel I got fair value for the cost."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Brand new plane."
Pros: "Nope. Just got me to where I was going..."
Cons: "Complimentary food, service (smile a little guys!), comfort."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute I had to buy another flight with Air Canada that cost me double the price and i was stuck at the airport all day !!!! The Air Canada flight was at 6.30pm ,and the West Jet was suppose to leave at 11.30am"
Cons: "Better food options!"
Pros: "Great crew, on time, could charge my iPad, 2 beverage services, just an awesome job! Oh biggest - NONSTOP!"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything!"
Pros: "West Jet was well organized and very professional in helping travellers on a full aircraft reach Hobolulu. I was particularly impressed by the polite calm and efficient cabin staff. Will use this airline again."
Pros: "Boarding, flight, and deplaning great.our seats were pre booked by West Jet and were the window and aisle seat. My husband is 6’5” and needs an aisle seat. We prefer to book our own seats at no cost. Fortunately our seat mate wanted to change too."
Pros: "The staff on board made us completely forget we just experienced a terrible 6 hour experience in the hands of westjet from punta cana. The airport staff and security were efficient and all friendly. Helped us every step of the way. But again, a big thank you to the 4 flight attendants on the ws 254 to Halifax. Made our crappy day much better simply by being a friendly and happy face."
Cons: "Didnt like having to connect but understand that was to my own booking."
Pros: "Flight was on time and WJ does provide quite a lot of leg room on their jets."
Pros: "Crew were great, service was spot on."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."
Cons: "When landing on final approach close to the ground, the pilot pulled up and passed the airport. It was almost 10 minutes before he got on the intercom and told us what was going on. Apparently traffic control told him there was a backup and to circle around. Not knowing what the situation was, was very nerve racking. It would have been nice to hear an announcement of the situation sooner."
Pros: "The crew were so kind and friendly. Kept the spirit upbeat and served us well. The bulkhead was roomy enough for carry on bags, so they weren’t taken away from us to be checked, which happened to us on the same flight last year with another Canadian airline."
Cons: "I do miss personal screens in seats, although I understand it’s not really necessary anymore. If there were a ledge or place in seats to accommodate personal devices for better viewing, that would b amazing. No more neck cricks."
Pros: "The ease of boarding with very nice staff!"
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No tv screens"
Pros: "I always use Kayak to book my flights! The website is user friendly and the prices you see are round trip. WestJet is fantastic! Service is great, the seating is spacious for the price. Always seems to be on time or early arrival."

Pros: "Staff and aervice was great! No complaint!"
Cons: "We had to put our carry on bags a little far away from our seats"
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: "The staff are super friendly. The prices are good and the travel times and locations are convenient and what we were looking for."
Cons: "Checking in was a bit of a pain - there was a WJ staffer helping us with the self serve kiosk. She obviously didn't know how to use it, and just hit the continue button and kept asking us to fill in the personal information on the screens. It was funny to laugh at afterwards but not at the time."
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "It my first time with westjet, it surprised me with feee upgrade to plus seat, the service is expectacular ! Looking more flights with them in the future"
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "Order ahead food was easy and selection was tasty"
Cons: "Bring a book! Apps to have your entertainment on individual devices is a bad idea."
Pros: "I like that it wasn't a huge plane"
Pros: "Everything was streamlined and easy to understand. We made it on time and the staff were friendly, especially with our young son who is one Ana half."
Cons: "You have to pay for a meal even though it’s a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Actual flight went off without a hitch to Vancouver no delays in air."
Cons: "We were moved gates which is understandable, however once moved the estimated time of departure was constantly changed and missed. There was a reasonable cause for delay (cleaning up puke) but took abnormally long > 2hrs. Staff did not seem to be really giving it there all (understandable as it was late and they were probably tired)."
Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "No meal included in 7hrs oversea trip. They had 3 services - two snacks and one coffee only.othereise, food was for purchase only. No checked luggage included."

Cons: "They automatically gave me the window seat"
Pros: "Bell's live TV is probably the best feature!"
Pros: "Everything was good, haven't used westjet in a long time as I live in the states now. Will use them as often as I can."
Pros: "We did not have to wait long in Calgary after landing and arriving at our luggage carousel. Our two bags were not only first off the belt but side-by-side and we were away in no time-- that never happens!"
Pros: "There was enough leg room and boarding was done reasonably quickly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 15 minutes without explanation."
Cons: "The flight itself was great but it was very late in starting due to technical problems with the aircraft."
Pros: "Only check in and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "I lost my luggage in the final distention (Riyadh city, Saudi Arabia). I reported it, but no replay until now."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good service."
Cons: "The size and quantity of carry on luggage needs to be restricted. The actual size and number of pieces needs to be enforced. The serving of liquor to passengers should be better monitored."
Cons: "Not enough washrooms for # of people. Denied us of from WR. Food carts blocked WR access to most people for long periods of time."
Cons: "My flight was late arriving in Toronto no fault of mine then the aircanada security took over an hour to get through then they had been paging me and were rude when I finally made it to the plane again not my fault. Did not deserve the attitude!!!"
Cons: "Air Canada has completely gone down the tubes and super quickly."
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful."
Pros: "Staff put in awful position to deal with upset clients Dealt with it as best as can be expected."
Cons: "Every time we have travelled from Chicago to Toronto, the flight gets cancelled. Had to leave 0230 to get to airport only to find that flight at 0800 was cancelled. Ugh!"
Pros: "I hadn’t been on a plane in almost 10 years. People were very helpful at the airports. The plane ride was comfortable. The crew was nice both ways. I would. The price was excellent!"
Pros: "We were put on an earlier connection flight to be able to make our flight back home on the same day. Weather conditions brought delays to flights that day. It was nice that the person was proactive and met us as we were exiting the airplane. We really appreciated it"
Cons: "Delay leaving We booked our flights many months ahead and ended up getting separate seats. People shouldn't be forced to reserve seats and have to spent more money for their flights. The airline should respect the booking and seat two people together"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to ATC"
Cons: "lack of real breakfast and few drinks even in premium economy"
Cons: "No one told us the only inflight entertainment option was streaming via their app, until we were seated on the aircraft with no access to wifi."

Pros: "Dinner was ok, Breakfast and coffee were horrrible"
Cons: "Very rude staff, would not do anything I asked and responded with attitude"
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Pros: "The food, wine and service were all great."
Cons: "Was surprised not to have screens in the seats to watch movies on an international flight."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"

Pros: "I changed my booking from MSY to IAH due to I don't have transit visa to Tranto . Any how my trip was excellent"
Cons: "Every thing was great"
Cons: "- Delayed from take off for over two hours. During this time, pilot and flight attendants shared minimal information with passengers. - At one point, I asked a flight attendant for water because I had a migraine and wanted to take some Advil. He told me he couldn't right now because the pilot wanted everyone in their seats, but he would get it for me as soon as possible. When I followed up 45 minutes later, the same flight attendant apologized and said that it was because he didn't want everyone asking for waters. We were stuck on that plane for over two hours, and you can't get people water? - Gate check was not available, meaning that I had to check my carry-on when there was no more space available (my bag met the carry-on size requirements)."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Sabrina, was fantastic. Quite friendly and helpful. You can tell she loves her job. She patiently answered questions and made the flight really pleasant."
Pros: "Smooth sailing across the board."
Cons: "I didn't like that the security/passport control was the slowest of any airport I have ever been in! We almost missed our flight because security was looking through (literally) every single bag and then the passport control only had 2 people for each visa/passport holders. Then, after running to catch our flight, the flight was delayed an hour AFTER they had already let everyone board the plane. People were telling them they had alerts on their phone, while boarding, yet still let everyone board. Overall, bad experience."
Pros: "Fantastic service. I will use Air Canada again."
Cons: "The delay was unforeseen but acceptable."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was friendly"
Cons: "Old airplanes, not very clean"
Pros: "The crew were effective and efficient. We boarded promptly and departed on time. They were polite and friendly."
Cons: "Long wait as usual to get on board. Delayed an hour."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Plane delayed by an hour without explanation. No seat selection or room for cartons due to it being oversold"
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, very tie space between seats, very slow to get off from the airplane in the arrival. Cero entertainment video center."
Pros: "Other than the rude employee in Vancouver's ticket and baggage counter, I'd fly Air Canada all the time if I could. SO much better than any of the other commercial airlines."
Cons: "We had a 10 hour layover in Vancouver, which would have been fine except that we had to get our luggage and recheck it the following morning. This left us outside of security, unable to go anywhere to rest. No one expects to be comfortable when you spend the night in the airport, but this was worse. No where to sleep, no decent chairs to rest in. We weren't sure why, since our connecting flight to Seoul South Korea was also Air Canada, our luggage had to be picked up at baggage claim, held on until the following morning, then rechecked. The clerks at the Air Canada ticket and baggage counter were supposed to be opened at 9, but an incredibly rude employee snapped at me that he didn't have time to talk to me, that I'd just need to wait until 9:30 when they opened."
Pros: "They were on time and the flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats and the plane was just too small for such a long flight."
Cons: "* No animation screens during the flight * Available tablets but you had to pay * The electricity plugs weren't working so i couldn't recharge my computer"
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Customer service was awful and the gate attendant was untrained. We were unable to board the plane."
Pros: "I liked the meal that was served and that if you didnt want to pay for the ipad, you could access TV on your phone."
Cons: "I didnt like that there were not individual TVs for my 10 hour fllght. I would have appreciated the entertainment on such a long flight, especially the movies which I could not access without the app. I also felt that more snacks should have been provided."
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Cons: "The flight attendants were inconsiderate of the wishes and comfort of the passengers. Food and drink were offered for sale in tourist class shortly after takeoff in the morning. Since I had just had breakfast, I asked if the food and drinks would be available later. The answer was probably not, which indeed was the case. This was on a five hour flight. When I did want food and drink, I had to go to the attendant at the back of the plane. I was able to have a drink delivered to purchase a drink, but the one food item I wanted was not in stock. (This was from the beginning, and was also the case on the outgoing flight a week earlier. I was informed that I could not use my noise cancelling headphones, designed and purchased largely for flying during takeoff and landing, but had to use ear buds, which I did not have, do not like, and as a senior with hearing aids find uncomfortable. Thus, I missed the benefit of their noise cancelling feature and much of the movie I was enjoying. On the earlier flight, one of the two toilets was unavailable, causing long waits, but the attendant in the front of the plane refused to allow me to use that toilet, which was available. When I protested, she answered the same way perpetrators of crimes against humanity did "I am just following orders." Where is the concern for the humanity of a senior citizen? Also the previous flight connections was scheduled too closely so that with security and border clearance, I was barely able to board at the last minute, thus causing a great deal of stress, no time to ear or use the toilet at the terminal, once again unhealthy stress and discomfort, no concern for the humanity of the passenger."
Pros: "friendly staff, not a full flight which was nice to stretch out"
Cons: "the food was not great, would have been nice for TV to have hockey championships game available to watch- another airline had this option on a flight during a Steeler game and it was nice."
Pros: "We were very impressed with Air Canada and would highly recommend flying with them to any destination!"
Cons: "Organized, friendly, polite staff. Everything ran very smoothly, especially the actual flight."
Pros: "GOOD LEG ROOM"
Cons: "THE FOOD STILL SUCKED."
