Pros: "The room between the seats"
Cons: "The boarding The landing The delay"
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?"
Pros: "WestJet is by far the friendliest and most professional airline"

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."
Pros: "Price!"
Cons: "But who knew, that I was going to go to Toronto! I now understand your schemes. You gave a cheap deal, but did not tell me why. Never again Kayak."
Cons: "I checked into my flight 24 hours in advance, got my boarding pass and everything. 12 hours before, I double check the boarding time and my flight has been cancelled. I got no notification of this, luckily I happened to check on my own."
Cons: "It was late. They were waiting on a flight from Toronto so we could board. We board the plan and sat for what seemed like a very long time. We were not even offered a glass of water on the flight."
Cons: "My luggage got left in toronto"
Cons: "I had to pay for earphones. Even if I didn't want the earphones I couldn't shut off the tv screen which really bothered me. Will you, in he future,charge us for using the washroom facilities?"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and funny."
Cons: "The Westjet staff at the Sudbury airport was not exactly friendly. My flight was departing at 6am, and they ask to be there 45 mins before which would have been at 5:15am, I got there at 5:20am and the gate was closed. At 5:25am an employee came to check me in but still advised me to be 45 mins in advance next time. I was only 5 mins late and they weren't even at the gate on my arrival. The security at the airport was rude."
Cons: "No vegetarian stuff inflight. Plz suggest to westjet."
Pros: "a very calm flying experience. no bells and whistles but consistently friendly and mostly efficient"
Pros: "The roominess, service, food.....all excellent"
Cons: "It would have been so much better if there was a foot rest."
Pros: "very smooth flight and friendly staff"
Cons: "We were delayed by roughly two hours, sat on the tarmac with no internet or other entertainment, services etc. This made it difficult as I was looking to get home on time and complete work in the air."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and everyone was kind with me."
Cons: "Snacks were given, I wish there were more options."
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."
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "Check in was fast, on time, landed early, entertainment worked"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight left & arrived on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, more legroom than the American Airline flight"
Cons: "I prefer to have a TV to watch instead of downloading the App."
Pros: "Quickest flight ever."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice don't know who's fault it"
Cons: "Almost an hour to get any luggage out is not acceptable"
Cons: "It was a little warm and stuffy while loading."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Modern aircraft."
Cons: "Leg room, especially for a 6’3 person in the middle seat."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Staff, room, boarding process, flight schedule and more!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "At this stage, you cannot use such an old plane for an overseas 8 hour flight. The plane was so old it even had the cigarrete disposers on the arm rest and it didn't have TVs not power outlets."
Cons: "Flight was fine. Wanted to change ticket to allow more connection time between DCA and JFK and the first two sales representative sucked. I considered never flying American again. On board crew was great."
Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Cons: "We waited on the check - in line for 3 hours because only 2 customer service reps were there to check-in customers. In 3 hours, only 2 people were assisted, causing us to miss our flight. I was traveling with my infant daughter on her first flight, I wasn't able to nurse her or change her. What a terrible experience. Are you working with American Airlines to improve their customer service? Surely, because you offer their flights in your site you support their practices. I just wanted a comfortable and reliable flight for my family. It's been very frustrating so far..."
Pros: "Veggie Asian meal was great - curry."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Seven hours siting in a fridge. Asked stewardess to turn it up. She didn't."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."
Pros: "The stewardesses were very polite and helpful"
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Pros: "Beautiful design n great storage"
Cons: "Hard to get out of seat unless in fully upright biz class position"
Pros: "Check in staff were very good.Lots of entertainment choices. Very comfortable seating,was worth the extra price."
Cons: "I went to check in with Iberia airlines as the flight information said. Desk was closed. Went to American airlines as suggested by airport staff, which was correct. Completely different terminal,we were lucky we had 3 hours between connections, the whole process took over an hour. Very confusing. The plane was American Airlines, Iberia was not mentioned anywhere else,very confusing. Dinner was served within an hour of taking off at 11pm, which we didnt have, but then nothing until an hour before landing and very hurried. Staff had been very busy chatting in the galley. No snacks available. Had a group of rowdy and rude passengers near us, not alcohol related. I think staff shoud have had a word with them, it looked like they didnt want to know, another passenger finaly did after 5 patient hours. Arrived in London, our bags did not. Staff were good. They found the error straight away. They delivered them to our home the next day which was a very good service."
Pros: "This was a horrendous experience."
Cons: "I've had flights canceled before, but clearly American Airlines/ JFK is not equipped to manage. American Airlines online hung up on me after 24 minutes of being on hold. I waited in line for 2 hours to get on another flight home and the attendant first suggested to fly me to Charlotte then Cleveland where I would arrive a day late after I'd been traveling with my elderly parents for 24 hours. Additionally, once we changed flights and had to go to Newark, it took an hour to print (yes, print) our new itineraries for United and then when the cab should have arrived immediately, we waited 45 minutes. I was displeased."
Cons: "My flight back home was cancelled without any notice and so we had to spend an extra night. The flight the next day went without a hitch, so it sort of made up for it."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Cons: "Very old plane. Small seats. No individual TV screen."
Pros: "Plane and staff were great. Very easy boarding process and we landed early in Dublin airport after an hour delayed take off. Food and staff service was very good, no complaints."
Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Cons: "Small seats. No entertainment old plane"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, was able to get rest on an overnight flight with my wife, good selection of movies."
Cons: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation. We understand that Things happens and the airline takes precautions to make sure everything is okay before take off. However, I'm very frustrated and disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Big lines for the kiosks to print out the boarding pass, after that another line to drop off the lauggages. We left late. Horrible food. Uncomfortable sits. NO INDIVIDUAL TV."
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to multiple mechanical malfunctions that should have been checked previous to boarding. Held on the plane for 4 hours, another 4 hours in terminal of the closed airport once allowed to deplane, no communication, no food or water, put up in a hotel an hour and half away despite this being NYC, terrible customer service, no compensation, unable to get tofinal destination earlier than 24 hours later missed events in final destination overall financial and personal losses due to the inadequacy of the airline."
Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Pros: "Staff very courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Old plane did not have individual screens."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."
Cons: "Very!! Dissatisfied & disappointed with AA. Finally took off over 3 hrs late. At that point everyone was thrilled that we were going versus being canceled. Had food in business class which tasted like it had been overcooked for three hours"
Pros: "The free cookies were very good and the service was great the flight was smooth and quick"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed by 4 hours so I automatically missed my connection. i called american to reschedule my flight for the next day in order to spend the night at my house and not have ro ask for hotel, they said no problem. when I go to she counter to explain they said that they would put me on a later flight and that they where sure I would make it. when I arrived miami I had missed my connection and they did NOT cover the hotel expenses they rebooked me for the next day at 5pm. no food no hotel no nothing. the next day I arrived at the airport counter the people at the american airline's counter did not want to let me thorugh because I had a one way ticket... after explaining for over 25 minutes they let me go.... the miami gloght to Bermuda then was also delayed for a total of 2 hours and they changed gates 8 times from one end to thw other and so on.... the worst service ever........"
Cons: "I was involved with the re routing to Utah -circled there for a few hours and then drop off in Ontario. there was a 7 hour delay, missed a day of work and was only given a voucher for a taxi.... the crew was sweet but didnt give ANY info on what was happening.. Absolutely pitiful."
Pros: "The crew were beyond excellent and tried to help with the seats. They were also very apologetic for the seat issue."
Cons: "Our seats had no power and couldn't adjust. The crew manually did it for us but we never got it to go close to flat. We were on an old 757 which is such an embarrassing product for AA compared to the new or refurbished planes."
Pros: "The Boeing 777 200 was refurbished with the new business class pods"
Cons: "Modern cabin space"
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "3 hour delay in take off and landing, malfunctioning door not weather caused the delay Moved to other gate and plane with blasts of cold air on passengers Stood on plane after landing Stood on bus waiting to be driven to exit point in terminal Missed the train that I had ticket for, bought online, so I lost the money and lost the day planned around the train schedule (plane was supposed to arrive at 7:10 and it landed after 10:00. I moved as quickly as possible through all stages, with no checked bags, cash in hand, but I missed a 12:30 train and failed to meet the guide lined up to meet me"
Pros: "The flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "They don't really explain the safety procedures and the FA's were a bit rude at times."
Pros: "It started with a unclear check-in process, proceeded with a multi-hour delayed flight with several reasons given for each return back to gate. Ended with us getting off the plane 4 hours after we were originally due to take off, a further hour delay before they said we could board again but then midway through that boarding we were told the flight was cancelled and no hotels were available and we'd need to return to check-in area to find out next steps. All this with our exhausted 4-year olds. Ended with us leaving the airport at 3 am. I truly never wish to fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Check-in, communication, the plane (I can't recall the last time we flew in a 757 plane (3 and 3 in each row) with no TVs for a transatlantic flight! Finally the multi delays ending with a cancelled flight with no alternate flight immediately offered to all."
Pros: "The initial price. Difficult flight."
Cons: "I did not get what I paid for and check in took two hours to figure out. I bought tickets on Kayak through Justfly.com for a Finnair flight and added an American Airlines (affiliate) frequent flyer number.and reserved my seats early.as I usually do and everything was confirmed by Justfly.com. No problems, right? I did not receive a check in notification. I used the Finnair trip number on my email but it said there was no flight found. I could not initially get hold of Just fly.com. when I did, they said I had to check in through American Airlines. That didn't work initially either. After getting a new trip number I was able to check in but our seats were changed and it was a red eye. When trying to get seats I noticed there are very few seats left. The seats I had selected were now open and would coat another $120 plus. I couldn't even get those. We wound up with some exit seats which seemed fine until my wife couldn't recline her seat. It was uncomfortable for both of us because she had to use my legs to prop hers onto. Im still on vacation so I haven't contacted American for a refund yet."
Pros: "It was fine. I don't really like to fly because I tend to get queasy. The pilot missed all of the pot holes. There were not any crying children or loud talkers. Bonus! If I could have propped up my legs on the seat back in front of me it would have been perfect!"
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Cons: "The plane took off much later than it was supposed to, so we were already behind. Once we got onto the runway, the plane turned around and went back for three people who had missed the flight. I suppose if I had barely missed the flight, I would want the plane to turn around. However, those three people held up a plane that was completely full and had standby passengers. Through the entire flight, there was an issue with the seating and there was a man standing up at the front because he had nowhere to sit. It was one of the most bizarre flights I've ever taken... and I fly about 15-20 times a year."
Pros: "Can't much think of anything. Gave the crew a break with the 'ok' only because I'm pretty sure none of this is their fault. They still smiled their way through this s*** assignment."
Cons: "We were assigned a Boeing 767. The seats were barely comfortable, even though I paid $129 to get "up to 6" more legroom" and snagged a bulkhead seat. (Is it me or do you want to start a revolution when you are just on the other side of the curtain where those on the other side are being served champagne, have large tv screens and fully reclining sleeper beds?). The food mediocre/unremarkable but heh, it's an airplane , the crew ok but uniforms dated and drab. The real letdown was the entertainment system. Or I shoudld say lack thereof. I was psyched that the seat was designated as having a charger. Yeah, if I'm carrying my car charger with me! Yikes!!! So, strike one. Then, NO ON DEMAND service of any kind, since this plane is not equipped with wifi, which would have given us the ability to watch on an iPad or other device. Strike two. And THEN, when you think, no this can't get worse, there are a strong of three 2ND RATE movies shown back to back. No choice, no watch when you want, in other words, no ON DEMAND. Oh, and did I mention the really really REALLY old pull-out remote control with a credit card phone on the flip side? STRIKE THREE! This was a Finnair booking through Kayak, but on an American Airlines code share. The gate at JFK was changed no less than 4 times, the final time, one hour before departure, from Gate 14 to Gate 45. Good thing I had left myself plenty of extra time! The check-in process at Finnair counter no less than a nightmare. Stood in line for 30 minutes, then told we had to go to "Line 1" and use one of the kiosks to print our boarding passes (we checked in online but were not given phone-board passes) and check our bags. This area was nothing short of pandemonium with agents yelling at us to form straight lines. Many of the kiosks were not working not working and there were not enough agents to help the throngs."
Pros: "I liked nothing about the flight or services of the staff."
Cons: "My flight was scheduled hours before I was scheduled. I checked in very early because I was coming in from another flight. At check-in the flight was still indicated as on-time. When I arrived shortly to the gate it indicated that the flight had been cancelled. I was assigned to the flight before which was delayed. We were not served beverages because we were told that the ride www short. I observed the flight attendant talking abruptly to other passengers When we arrived in DC, we were told that another plane was parked at our gate. We sat on the runway for almost an hour. I was told when I arrived that my bag had been accidently sent to Charlotte. Unbelievable!!"

I sat near a man who continually took his mask off. He was told to put it on 3 different times. He would say “ oh sorry” then remove it as soon as they walked away. By the end of the flight they had given up and they all walked by him “maskless” and didn’t say anything. He coughed and sneezed throughout the flight

All is well

Price was good. Boarding was terrible. Perhaps it was on the airport authority. No food and no entertainment, as expected. No tunnel for boarding and getting off (inconvenient)

Cons: "We ran into a hiccup at the airport and my wife left her purse in the bathroom near security. Since the gate was over 1km away we ended up arriving 5 minutes before departure time but the gates were closed and they would not let us on.Gate staff were very unhelpful, and the next day the manager at Halifax was very rude about returning our checked luggage. We will fly with WJ/AC from now on."

On time, friendly staff

Plus seating

There is no in-flight entertainment or food on this flight but for the price it was perfect - direct flight, on time, easy check in and boarding experience

You get what you pay for. It was all good.

Cons: "Was very late. Could not sort out simple boarding issues"
Pros: "Flight once it got to Edmonton was ok"
Cons: "Communications with travelers...5 hour delay! Meal vouchers were given with only one restaurant open and maxed out on space and good items...just a bad situation."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Pricing is great"
Cons: "Seats, complimentary food, timing of flight"
Pros: "That it was cheap when we booked it online."
Cons: "Apparently it wasn’t that cheap of a flight after all. We had to pay for our luggage instead of a carry on. And the plane was empty not full with passengers. That to us was a ripoff. Don’t Deceive passengers to fly cheap with you when you’ll make them pay you for carry on when it’s not needed."

They make you pay for everything:- hand carriage, seat, check-in and don't even offer you a cup of water! It turnout much more expensive than AC !

I didn’t like It at all cause of delays and cancellations last minutes? No entertainment not even charging points in plane ..and I noticed when one flight landed from flair’s air plane the reuse that plane which is fine but no safety protection no sanitary nothing .

Flight was late

Brand spanking new planes and amazing crews.

Pros: "cabin crew was friendly enough"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour on the tarmac because an engine wouldn't start!"
Pros: "Great crew, fast boarding, nearly empty plane so I had the whole three seat row to myself."
Cons: "The hydraulic pump for the inboard flaps sounded like it was on it's last legs and howled whenever adjustments were made. The cabin pressurization system whistled so loud that I had to put ear buds in to protect my hearing (just on takeoff/landing). Proper maintenance is important!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat with plenty of hip & leg room."
Cons: "Charged $35. for luggage because I didn't know I could go online with the Flair Air website & pay prior to check in. They were friendly and advised me to do this in the future."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash like website and they did not charge $10 for printing off my boarding pass, as no one could with website down. Also, some budget airlines now only allow 40lbs in checked baggage, Looks like they allow 50lbs."
Cons: "Similar problem on the way home, could not book luggage online but could check in. Shop closes at 5 CST so could not call. Even though we told at checkout that it was because of the Christmas volume online, still had to pay Airport (extra) price to check-in baggage. They said I could perhaps get the penalty fee returned if I called in. Told her it's not worth 2 hours on a paid long distance call to get $20 back."

Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "I was told by transat to down load an App. to watch entertainment only to be told by Flair Air that they did not provide the service and that I was given the wrong information. So no TV for 5 hrs."
Cons: "New leaf discontinued their Sunday Halifax to Hamilton flight which was to be my return flight home. They did offer me a full refund if I needed to cancel or to rebook on a different flight but I couldn't make the new dates work so I took the full refund. I booked the flights in December for a flight in Feb and they cancelled half way through January so there wasn't a lot of notice given"
Pros: "Everything about Newleaf was awesome."
