Due to a brief delay departing Edmonton, and another delay on the tarmac in Calgary, we had a short connection in Calgary. We barely made it (there were 9 passengers making the connection for the flight to Gatwick), and were told our luggage would be on the flight. All the bags from Edmonton did not make the connection. So here I am I London with just my carry on bag. Hopefully my checked luggage will be along today or tomorrow.
Delays and baggage was lost and sent to wrong carousel.

Cons: "Timing. The flight was delayed by an hour."
Cons: "Sat in Plus. Horrible service. No hot towels. Had to ask for 2nd drink and was refused a coffee and Baileys with at least an hour left in flight. No snacks offered or served. The attendant spent most of her flight hiding in her seat and reading a novel. Brutal!"

Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
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."
Pros: "Liked that personnel are diverse and inclusive."
Cons: "Personnel at West Jet counter did not communicate clearly and loud enough for passengers to hear compare to other persons from other airlines like Delta wherein person spoke clearly. Suggest further training on communication skills."

Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful.i"

Pros: "Crew was courteous and the plane was not packed like the previous one, so it was good there was room to stretch out the legs."
Cons: "Having to board the plane walking outside.It was raining and there were puddles everywhere. Flight was delayed"
Cons: "We got stuck at the airport for 20h because of westjet not having a pilot."
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: "Direct flights...friendly staff...well kept aircraft..."
Cons: "Long wait to board due to people checking in on line and having to show passports at the last moment...delaying boarding for everyone else..."
Pros: "I liked the ease in getting through security."
Cons: "Indidn’t Like that that the flight was delayed by more than 1 hour. I really do mean t believe that it was because the pilot was late. I think that it was a way to arrive at the Regina airport when other planes arrived to save airport fees."
Cons: "No wine to purchase this time"
Pros: "Overall flight and connections were good. Board process was smooth and flight departed and arrived on time. Watch for baggage delays when arriving in Fort McMurray as they can sometimes be excessive. No entertainment provided on the smaller planes but most people have some form of entertainment with them."
Cons: "It took an hour and a half for the flight attendant to reach the fifth row to offer refreshment an then announced they had run out of red wine. Apparently she failed to check the stock before departure."
Pros: "Always a good experience travelling with west jet"
Pros: "Comfortable newish aircraft. No entertainement, but it is ok for a short flight; same with food."
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage, I received it about 36 hours later. Most important: they never called me for updates (contrary to their own information sheet). I had to call several times; their online follow-up is badly set up, too."
Cons: "Took 30 minutes from push-back to runway in TO. Cabin was unpleasantly hot."
Pros: "Crew fun"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Cons: "3 hours early for international flight, which was then delayed 3 hours. Then another hour at LaGuardia waiting for 2 $40 taxis to take 5 of us downtown. Ugh. WestJet terminal crew were flustered and uninformed. Terminal 3 at Pearson had inadequate seating. Sitting on the floor for hours isn't appreciated."
When I arrived in Calgary I discovered my plane was reassigned to a more profitable route and I was left stranded in Calgary. I had to rent a car and drove 8 hours to get home at my own expense. 2 of my last 3 flights with Air Canada were cancelled and the 3rd one was delayed 2 hours. Air Canada is an unreliable airline. Choose another airline if you can!
Cancelled with no options
The stewardess was cheerful and always had a smile!!!!!
Was kinda tight in the seats no leg room. Seats uncomfortable. Maps cpuldnt keep up Allot of ports not working. But was an amazing ezperience.
Long time for luggage to show up. I know pearson is short staffed but it was a long time.
They rebooked my connecting flight even though I made it to the gate on time. Then my rebooked flight was delayed 6+ hours. They gave me terrible seats even though I paid premium for my original seats. I missed the first day of my vacation and I arrived exhausted.
Make sure that is everyone wants comfort but packing the travellers like sardines into spots that they can not have their total comfort (leaning the seat back, etc) should be a courtesy things especially when it is a full flight and there is nothing to do to allow everyone to be comfortable.
The flight attendants were very very helpful Very efficient Boarding was very smooth Very good experience
Cons: "The plane was loaded front to back and unloaded without any disipline i.e. the usual uncontrolled mob. Neither is a good idea in this time of covid-19."
Pros: "On-time performance, upgrades, staff"
Pros: "Our plus seats were very comfortable. The service & demenour of the crew was mediocre. The evening meal was quite good although We were never offered a second glass of wine with our dinner."
Cons: "The breakfast was terrible. The pastry was soggy & was served with a bottle of Yop. That was it. No coffee or anything else."
Pros: "nice crew, very attentive"
Cons: "no movies, charge for food"
Pros: "chairs and plane service was good and friendly ."
Cons: "the food was not good"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Pros: "N A"

Pros: "Nothing stood out as being too great. I was too pissed off from the delay to really notice any good."
Cons: "We were delayed about 2.5 hours. Ridiculous."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, the boarding easy, the flight pleasant, good views."
Cons: "Plane employees did not explain what the declaration card was meant to serve. I left mine on the plane by mistake, partly due to complete ignorance of its purpose. Please either put the purpose on the card or have your flight staff explain what passengers will need the card for, once they get to the next inspection point. Don 't take this for granted!! The long walk from the point of deplaning to the center of Pearson Airport was unexpected."
Cons: "Seats are to close. There is no leg room."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Don't like having to walk outside in the cold snow to board the plane"
Pros: "all the staff was very pleasant"
Cons: "I couldn't use my laptop with Windows to watch a movie because the airline didn't have the app that works for Windows"
Pros: "Seats, entertainment"
Cons: "We had to change planes, after boarding the original aircraft, and were delayed almost an hour. We thought the airline (Air Canada) could have recognized the inconvenience with a free drink or extra snack."
Pros: "Tv screens were cool"
Cons: "Because of snow my flight got moved 5 hours later with no notification. We boarded around 6pm. I was very hungry as its dinner time. When i tried to buy food they said they had no more meals available. So i went hungry. I was very unimpressed"
Pros: "I really liked the entertainment. Not knowing the Toronto airport I did ask a few crew for help where to go for customs and continuing flight. We got a ride to get closer to customs. After going through customs we asked again where to go for continuing flight and finally got to our location and they were just starting to board. Felt a little too rushed no time for bathroom break."
Cons: "Leg room not very much with bag in front under the seat in front of you. Legs fell asleep and knees locked really needed more room for legs."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but only for an hour"
Pros: "Flights all deprt s and arrived on time which allowed us to make our connections. A bonus is the flight attendant was pleasant Air Canada Concierge was a real help this entire trip"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive with us."
Pros: "Attendant Wendy was fantastic in service and friendliness."
Cons: "Once again big guy put into seat 33F. Seat doesnt go back and no legroom."
Pros: "Everything came on time. Staff was professional during a difficult situation"
Cons: "Air Canada seems to lack organization or any coordinated effort through out the organization. They have a fully booked flight and instead of making people with hard case luggage check them they crowd them in on the same flight where there are delays trying to get peoples luggage to fit into the bins. Also through the 4 Air Canada flights flight attends were constantly running down the aisle and hitting customers shoulders and not apologizing. it was also disruptive when people were trying to sleep (these were the 3 flights going to hawaii through calgary and vancouver and then back through vancouver. Probably will not fly with Air Canada again till corporate starts considering clients."
Pros: "Cabin crew were really nice."
Cons: "The media selection was minimal."
Pros: "Drinks were provided."
Cons: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Pros: "luggage intact and well kept"
Cons: "No good refreshment on flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room, was actually painfull"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Felt like spam in a can."
Pros: "Got to spend the night in Toronto unexpectedly."
Cons: "Due to Air Canada's I missed my flight to Amsterdam. I missed out on a day of sightseeing and having fun and Amsterdam instead I spent a day in Toronto. I was able to get on a flight 24 hours later. This missing connection happens routinely with Air Canada, for some reason they have not managed to fix the error."
Cons: "Flight delayed half hour, rush through all the steps, we are the first one get to the plane. But all the other people can not make it because we sit at near front and started the rush earlier. However, all of our checked luggage so can not make it. We are waiting for delivery on the next day. This type of short connection of international flight should not be arranged as we told you and AC when you told us the original booking was changed due to AC flight modification."
Cons: "Mine and my wife's legs did not fit. The seats were spaced much closer together than is standard, and this made the flight unbearable. I stood in the isle for most of the flight. To make things worse on this 5 hour flight, there was no video available to distract me."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "I was put in overbooking, and was concerned about not being able to get on the flight. Everything worked out fine in the end, but still did not appreciate this. Given the risk of not being able to board, I will likely not use this airline in the future."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 4 hours due to Air Canada fault, no crew at the gate to provide updates, forced to gate check all carryons, missed connection AND rebooked connection. Canada was lovely, too bad I can't say the same about Air Canada."
Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"
Cons: "We were delayed because the plane was late from Toronto, and were told this when we all began to check in up front. When the staff finally did come to the desk at the gate, they still maintained (and rather rudely to some of the other passengers) that the plane would be there by 7-- turns out the plane got there about 7:30, rebooking flights that were going to be missed was like pulling teeth for some of the passengers, and we took off about 8 (1 hr 40 mins late)."
Pros: "Overall not a bad flight. Comfortable enough, good movie options. Food tasted could, but did not agree with my body."
