Pretty quick and simple flight on a small plane
Cons: "They closed the check in counter early. No kiosk check in was available. No one was in their airport office and neither we, nor airport staff, were able to reach them via the onsite contact info provided. As a result we missed our flight."
Cons: "I don’t like the charge for checked bag. It encourages people to bring too many and too large bags onto the plane."
Pros: "The crew worked hard to ensure that we had a good flight with minimal interruptions"
Cons: "Delays always hurt, the flight was delayed yet there were no notifications and additionally the delay was closer to an hour long since boarding only started 20 minutes late."
Cons: "Did not serve food."
Cons: "I asked to pay for a better seat prior to my flight from Kelowna to Edmonton and was told there wasn’t any. When we boarded the flight attendant moved a couple 10+ rows up for no charge."
Pros: "The staff at the airport in Cancun are amazing! Wonderful service from the time you enter the terminal till you are checked in and through security. The flight on WestJet was excellent."
Cons: "Getting through YYZ is horrible. Two CBSA clerks checking the customs forms at the exit of the baggage area (twelve pickup areas). Really? Get a grip CBSA."
Pros: "Very friendly staff on the flight."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow us to check our bags online without charging baggage fees; Culdn't get electronic boarding passes; Took forever to check-in at airport. boarding passes and baggage tags had to be hand-written."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No entertainment on board"
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."
Pros: "The airline crew was amazing. The airport staff went above and beyond to help my mother through the airport."
Cons: "Old plane. No WiFi. Movie options were limited."
Pros: "Flight only took about 2&1/2 hours! Crew was humorous and very sweet. Got in early thank goodness or May have missed connection. Our baggage was checked through to the final destination which was great. No problems with reservations or baggage."
Cons: "Boarding seemed painfully slow. Download the WestJet app in advance if you like to watch movies or TV shows on your mobile device! I had a very tight connection to next flight and had to make it through immigration and to a far-away gate in leas than one hour. To make it worse we had to wait about 10 minutes for a customs agent to arrive so they could begin unloading the luggage and let us go through customs."
Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very expensive"
Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding was a good experience"
Cons: "The fact that the plane was supposed to land at 3.35pm and we actually landed at 4:40 and for some reason we waited to get off the plane with no apology from anyone. The service was not satisfactory and they broke our stroller."
Pros: "Everything from boarding early to funny safety announcement was awesome."
Cons: "I think they should remove the ability to have people lean back in their seats on the shorter flights. It’s clostraphobic when some feel they have to have a ‘lay back nap’ for such a short flight. It is like you have zero breathing room and feels like they are encroaching on my breathing space. People, the seats are already too close together must you lay back?"
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled . Re booked on a different flight , that one was delayed with no new time , with a threat that that flight would be cancelled , we were booked on a 3rd flight , to Toronto to connect to a delta flight to Atlanta . We were told that delta would give us our boarding pass to Atlanta at the delta desk in Toronto. At delta in Toronto we were advised that there were no available seats on the flight we were supposed to be booked on . Delta booked us to Detroit then on to Atlanta . Trip delay was over 9 hours and lots of stress and run around . Very disappointed with west jet . We have always used west jet and this was the first time we felt we were given very poor service .causing a very long and stressful day , arriving at our destination 9 hours later than planned , resulting in a 24 hour exhausting travel day."
Pros: "Great staff. Overall good considering the cheap flight."
Cons: "No free meal, the pizza ordered was terrible. No tv, only iPads for rent."
Pros: "Westjet service"
Cons: "Calgary International airport is one of worst airports in north america. Sad how badly planned a new airport could be."
Cons: "First flight on WestJet in 3 Years. Didn’t like not knowing I needed a tablet or laptop and an app to watch tv. Offered a drink and asked for water. Received about 2 ounces. Every body around me ordered soft drinks and got a 10 ounce can"
Pros: "Although you have to pay for food onboard, it was really good. WestJet Connect provided good entertainment- movies and Tv shows all free- that made the 7 hours pass relatively painlessly. Cabin crew were awesome."
Cons: "Nothing. Exceeded my expectations"
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly, super helpful. Wasn't as jam packed as most flights so it was nice to have some extra leg room."
Cons: "No in flight movie or distraction of some sort but was still a very calm quiet flight which is just as good."
Pros: "On time efficient friendly helpful crew"
Cons: "Expensive food choices, small seats , small seat back pockets to store my stuff !"
Pros: "Everything went well with the flight. There were some technical difficulties but nothing that was within West Jet's control."
Cons: "There was one crew member that was being really passive aggressive with a mom behind us who was just trying to keep her kids quite and happy. The other crew members were sympathizing with the mom, but this one woman was just being stubborn for what seemed like no reason. If the other crew members say something is ok, I see no reason why she had to be difficult other than being spiteful."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "there was no movies to watch"
Cons: "airport did t have air conditioning and there is no room in the overhead compartments propeller planes are unreasonable loud"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Staff were great"

Pros: "The pilot was awesome and the crew."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Internet was faulty"
Pros: "The crew on the plane were very friendly"

Cons: "I was not given the prepurchased food item I ordered"
Pros: "As always, the staff and crew were great. Left on time, arrived on time they go their best to deal with the shortcomings of the company."
Cons: "The entertainment system (or lack thereof...) not nearly enough iPads to rent and it never works on laptops."
Pros: "We had to walk a long long way. I have a cane. No assistance offered. International flights with connector had to collect luggage. And clear customs then go through security again. It was more like third world service."
Pros: "Excellent. Again staff was very courteous and caring. Smooth comfortable flight all the way."
Pros: "I had 2 checked in bags, the charge a bit to high, When fly between Canada - USA, 1 allowable check-in luggage should be included in the fare. Please think about it."
Pros: "The airplane being pretty small, boarding and getting off was fast. No issues or delays either."
Cons: "pilot should have informed us as soon as plane left gate that we would have extended delay due to missed take off window-we do expect some type of reimbursement!!"
Pros: "We liked how friendly the staff was. Liked the priority boarding, food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats. My bum hurt at the end of our flight. Also we paid for our wifi and it was incredibly slow at loading any website. Very frustrating."
Pros: "You pay for what you get. WestJet staff are always wonderful. The fligh is a flight."
Cons: "Was't a problem with WestJet. However if ever departing from Vancouver don't rely on the wait times provided in the airport. Give yourself ab addition 30 mins extra."
Pros: "No food and no entertainment so can't offer a rating. As for the rest, efficient and well organized and comfortable seats with really decent leg room. I'll be looking o fly WestJet more often.i"
Cons: "I would have liked TV privileges. Had a window seat and the overhead light wasn't the best for reading."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The online entertainment was not working."
Cons: "Food options not much variety"
Pros: "This was my first time flying Plus and I don't think I can ever go back. Worth every penny."
Pros: "mostly everything that an airline can offer is always on par !"
Cons: "seat sealction - I've booked in advice but seat selection is always a headache. I prefer to have front seats (closes to front in econly class, emergency area) but I got stuck all the way in the back by the washrooms. It would be amazing if on my way back to Calgary I can have a better option?"
Pros: "Price, staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no padding, very hard. At Pearson you have to walk about half an hour to get to West Jet gate."
Pros: "Entertainment TV worked well Free beverages"
Cons: "Bigger space between seats Food or snacks offered"
Pros: "The answers were defaulted with a star selection and I could not change it. Our air Canada flight for Vancouver to Maui was just OK. It was an Air Canada Jazz flight. Very uncomfortable seats (and we were in business class). The flight was uneventful and the service was great. I would change my answers above to 1 star for comfort; zero stars for entertainment. The movies were old and it was very hard to hear the shows with the ear buds they provided."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Convenient quick. No stop overs"
Cons: "could have used more room"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour then cancelled last minute, rebooked on a flight the next day that didn't leave until noon, had to call into reservations to get on an earlier flight on another airline"
Cons: "Rouge set up of the plane. Bring back air canada please"
Pros: "On time flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "No food unless you bought it, minimal service."
Pros: "Competent stewards/stewardesses"
Cons: "No meal?"
Cons: "I don’t like the head games air Canada plays when they know the flight is probably not going to leave for three hours and they purposely don’t update the flight details. Only update every 20 minutes for a three hour delay...."
Pros: "No entertainment Little to no food or drinks Some crew were rude"
Cons: "For the trip to finish"
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Cabin Crew did not provide water to hydrate the passengers but, one time on the flight from Toronto to San Francisco."
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to mechanical issues. Missed our connection to LAX in Toronto due to the delay. Poor communication from on the ground staff regarding the rebooking. When we actually got our rebooked flight, it was for two days later. Took multiple calls to booking line to get a more reasonable flight out the following day. The hotel they put us up in was over 40 minutes away too. To add insult to injury, when we finally got to LAX, our luggage didn't make it and didn't get delivered until two days later. Overall very poor experience."
Cons: "I didn't travel with children, but if I had done they would have needed entertaining. The crew offered iPads (to rent) for the entertainment of children and adults alike. Why can these not just be given to passengers, better still BRING BACK SCREENS IN SEATBACKS!!!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My wife and I were seated in different rows."
Cons: "One of the worst overall flight experiences. Flight attendants ignored assistance light, no entertainment ( only option was paying for an ipad), and blankets had to be paid for!!. Flight was so booked that we were late taking off. Poor flight attendants were obviously understaffed. Will avoid this airline when possible"
Cons: "Boarding gate very small"
Pros: "friendly helpfull staff"
Cons: "luggage took to long to get"
Cons: "International service quite a bit better, still not lufthansa standard, but better than crossfair/swiss"
Pros: "The Air Canada staff in Austin was wonderful. The flights from Ottawa to Toronto and back were fine."
Cons: "Problems that were, to be sure, not entirely the airline's fault. The trip from Toronto to Austin was delayed because someone had taken the flight attendant's bag from the overhead. We had to wait until either the bag was recovered or a new flight attendant was brought in. On the return flight, the first officer had ruptured her eardrum, and the plane could not leave Austin until a new pilot was flown in from Toronto. It took hours for the airline to arrange for hotel rooms. The airline then offered vouchers when we arrived in Toronto, but their representative brought enough for only about 2/3 of the passengers."
Pros: "About as good as a modern sold-out flight can get."
Cons: "Lufthansa crew was abrupt and demanding."
Pros: "Normal quick flt."
Cons: "Nothing really, pretty standard."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew."
Cons: "I was held aside at the customs area and had a difficult time figuring out what was going on. Signage was less than helpful, and staff were unaware of why I was being held. After over 30 minutes during which the gate staff could only tell me to wait and watch for my initials on the electronic board, the staff learned that some bags on my arrival flight had been accidentally diverted to Canadian customs rather than US customs, and passengers could not proceed to connecting flights until our bags were located. The customer service staff then worked very hard on our problem. I was instructed to re-book my flight, since by now the doors were about to close - but that customer service person could not re-book me, and I had to queue up again for another agent. When I got to the desk, that agent was able to get me approved to board my flight sans bag, ran me to the front of the Immigration line, and got me to my gate in time to board. I deeply appreciate her assistance, as my family was already on the plane."
Pros: "Great pilot(s). Took off in storm and had probably the best landing..."
Cons: "Delayed 55 mins, delayed 5 more mins, delayed 20 more minutes by the time we boarded zone 5 they weren't even checking passports. Just scanning boarding passes and letting everyone on. I found most issues with the Orlando airport itself."
Cons: "Missed the flight due tot eh first delay then the next one got delayed too"
Pros: "I liked the airport design at Montreal."
Cons: "the whole process in Montreal seemed cold. Not really friendly compared to our domestic flight from Los Angeles to Montreal. The crew weren't very friendly at all. It's as if we were bothering them to ask a question or for them to give a smile once in a while."
Pros: "I missed my flight because of traffic and they changed my flight free of charge."
Cons: "I tried calling the airline while stuck in traffic and could not get through to anyone. The recording said it would be 30 minutes before someone would answer. DEPLORABLE!"
Cons: "Very poor communication and co-ordination when flight was delayed and then cancelled. Rebooking was only available via the phone, even when at the airport, with a 45 minute hold time. Everyone kept passing the buck to another, and no supervisors were around. Terrible customer service!"
Pros: "Plane seats were comfortable with decent headrests and reclining. First class looked roomy, but I was in economy."
Cons: "There was water/condensation dripping from the roof onto my lap while I was sleeping, and I woke up with my entire thigh drenched. I was able to move to an open seat, but the "gentleman" (coughjerkcough) next to me obviously wasn't happy about the encroachment, so he coped by elbowing me in the side throughout the entire 5-hour flight. Every movement of his was an opportunity to punch me in the arm or shoulder, and I don't even take up that much space, so he was literally reaching over into my seat to do this. And, this portion of the plane was in a cold zone. I and the other passengers were cold (I heard others complAining about it too)."
Pros: "Never thought Canada air is so bad in international air services. Would never use Canada Air for my international travel in the future."
Cons: "Bad food, worst attitude of crew combined with no entertainment in flight during almost 10 hours of flying time."
Pros: "I was not expecting much from the small aircraft, but there was so much leg room that my very tall husband actually fit in the seat and his knees didn't touch the seat in front of him like usual. And, there was an in-flight entertainment system, also unexpected. Kept the kids happy."
Cons: "I gave 1 star for food because there wasn't any. Air North has cookies."
Cons: "We sat at the back with no windows and there was no entertainment except for an app available through wifi on our phones."
Pros: "3 1/2 hours late cramped stuffy with a very strong chemical disinfectant odor that was gagging passengers . Cabin was too hot and poorly ventilated. Only flight landing in Pittsburgh late Tuesday night and we were still forced to walk him from the very end of the concourse . Once we got to the landside terminal we had to walk past all the unused baggage claim area to the very end carousel. Pittsburgh airport management should be ashamed of themselves . No wonder there tax finance Taj Mahal is a ghost town !"
Pros: "Flight from Vancouver to Frankfort was perfect. All crew members and gate members were pleasant to deal with."
Cons: "Flight to Columbus cancelled....cheap vouchers for meals"
Pros: "Good food. Easy flight"
Cons: "2hrs delayed and no explanation the reason. So my arrival time in Toranto 2am instead of 10:45pm."
Pros: "One of the crew went above and beyond. I ordered a vegetarian hindu meal but somehow was not on the list. Luckily one of the meal options was vegetarian. However he came back to get my information and sent a message to Zurich so that I would be sure to have the meal on my return flight. I thought that was really thoughtful and kind! I do not know his name but he worked in that included row 25 on the A side and I would have loved to be able to mention his name so that he gets a great review. Economy seats we very comfortable for me."
Cons: "It would be so nice if everyone could have the business class pillows. It makes such a difference not to have to use the little "pillows" that economy offers."
Pros: "Organized boarding and in flight service"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant, there was in-flight entertainment, and even refreshments. All 3 of these are rare these days so I was happy about that."
Cons: "There was a delay but that's ok."
Pros: "The choice in entertainment The flight attendents New plane"
Cons: "Flew on a new BOEING 777-200LR. They decided to maximize the amount of passengers per flight by adding additional seats to each row causing very cramped conditions. I am only 5'8" at 160 lbs and was extremely uncomfortable the entire trip. I may have had an extra inch of room from my knee to the chair in front of me. I couldn't stretch my legs out at all."
Pros: "Efficient and pleasant cabin crew. Smooth flight home - Vancouver to Sydney. Reasonable leg room in Economy section. Hassle free boarding procedures - we used electronic boarding passes. Food was served hot & in a timely fashion - reasonable quality for airline meals. The frequent offers of beverages was appreciated. A variety of recent release movies available. Good cross section of music."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, no leg room"
Cons: "This site allowed me to book a CANCELED flight. I found out 20 hours before my scheduled flight that I was on an 11:20pm flight not a 7pm flight."
Cons: "Meals were tiny and tasted like they were prepared in a lab, not a kitchen."
Pros: "Prompt departure and arrivals very good crew"
Cons: "The chair comfort"
Cons: "My flight had been cancelled, and I missed an important meeting!"
Pros: "The flight and the service:"
Cons: "Price wise I felt I was taken advantage of. It was anxious flight and I needed to get there for Christmas with my son and his family. I ended up paying a whopping $1350 with Insurance cancellation. I am a senior 72 years of age, live strictly on a fixed income of $1500. and would appreciate a discount. Especially as I know others who paid as little as $800. Also I didn't or couldn't afford a meal coming or going. Thank you."
Pros: "It was a good enough flight. However, for a 6 hour flight, it would have been nice if food or entertainment were offer."
