Cons: "Everything. Contrary to most of my experiences with WestJet over the past nineteen years, this was the worst, overall, trip I have ever had with them, from delays, to missing my connecting flight, to gross incompetence with the staff, to a failure to even empathize with our situation (with a baby!)."

Cons: "The flight was very delayed due to weather, which is fine. However, more information would have been really nice."

Cons: "No coffee"
Pros: "Super fast. All on time."
Cons: "I didn't like in a middle seat and being told that in order to move to an aisle seat I would have to pay $13.50. Normally with Westjet it was always free to change seats at Check in. It's frustrating when things change and you only find out at the time of check in rather than at time of booking."
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: "comfortable seats, wifi entertainment"
Cons: "Unable to upgrade delta flight because it was a westjet code share flight, westjet unable to upgrade delta flight because it was to be done on delta servers. I was finally able to upgrade at the delta check-in counter for a higher fee than usual (ontop of the perfered seat upgrade I already paid for). I waited 1.5hrs after takeoff before I called staff for a drink. Over 2hrs before they officially started serving main cabin drinks and snacks. There was some turbulence but they could have served people by hand without the cart. They had no problem serving first class before, during and after takeoff."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landed 17 minutes earlier. Bags arrived before I was in front of baggage area."
Cons: "I miss the wedding party I was the bridesmaid"
Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable seats.. easy boarding."
Cons: "No air conditioning til we took off, both on our outgoing and incoming flights. That was very annoying as I actually had trouble breathing!"

Pros: "Service on plane. Attendants were delightful."
Cons: "Sat on the runway and it smelled of exhaust, which made me nauseous."
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: "WE HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS AND THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL TO HELPING USE WITH ARE NEEDS THANKS SO MUCH IT WAS A PLEASURE TO FLY WITH WEST JET CHEERS monica formosa and josephine formosa thankyou to all west jet employees such wonderful kind hearted people"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, so I was going to miss my connector. They made some calls and got me booked on a British air flight straight to my destination. Thank you!"

Pros: "staff very pleasent"
Cons: "delays cancelled flights"
Pros: "Agreed to check bag at gate, early boarding in return. Great gift!"
Cons: "LaGuardia is terrible. They shrank departure lanes and we got stuck on the plane for an hour. I hate this airport. Something always goes wrong."
Pros: "very nice staff. comfortable seats"
Cons: "no ice for drinks. would have preferred in flight entertainment on seat backs"
Cons: "- The unprofessional way the staff "sorted us out". Especially the lady at check-in. Our flight was from NY to Toronto and then connecting after a nine-hour layover from Toronto to London. On all flights, we got the seats in the middle of the aircraft allocated, which is challenging when you are on crutches. - The second flight to London was in a terribly old machine where the overhead compartments were not well equipped to accommodate my crutches. The only way they fitted was at the very back underneath all the luggage. So when I asked the flight staff to help me get my crutch to go to the toilet, as I could not get it myself, he asked: "do you really have to use it?". I considered that very rude! - The selling of the entertainment systems took forever, which meant that the food sale was very late. Almost 4 hours into the flight on an overnight flight is really late! Especially when people would prefer to sleep. Due to my medication, I had to wait for food, but it took forever. All in all, not the best experience"
Cons: "Snack options..."
Pros: "Always friendly"
Cons: "No complimentary drink all of a sudden"
Cons: "Even though it was the first flight of the day, WestJet still left an hour late which meant I missed my connecting flight. That meant I also had to rebook my ground transportation an additional cost. Why they couldn't manage to get the first flight of the day out on time, I don't know. This stuff happens, and I am generally a patient and understanding person. That said, WestJet not only caused inconvenience and added expense, the airline had absolutely destroyed my snowboard bag. It was damaged so badly that I had to tape it up just so I could get out of the airport without losing my stuff everywhere. The WestJet employees didn't say anything about the damage, and clearly hoped I would just go away without making a claim. To make matters worse, they only pay part of the cost to replace my luggage."
Pros: "The flight was on time, there was enough room for carryons in the overhead bins"
Cons: "I did not have any food or use the entertainment options so that’s why I scored them low as I don’t know how good they were."
Pros: "I received adequate notification for check in and updates"
Cons: "There was a slight delay though we managed to arrive on time"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Free booze"

Pros: "Seats and the crew"
Cons: "Checking in takes a long time"
Pros: "The boarding process was organized and quick. The pilots, Robert and Patrick flew so well and we landed like a dream."
Cons: "it was very good"
Cons: "Toronto connection takes forever!!"
Pros: "The fly is in time"
Cons: "A bit of disorganization in the row where they reviewed documentation and the suitcases of three machines to print passages only served 1"
Cons: "The bag of treat I got with my coffee don't remember what it was but it had no taste. I tasted it and discarded the rest."
Pros: "Crew was good, the flight landed 30mins early - however the airport wasn't ready for us to be so early."
Cons: "I sat in coach and always feel like a sardine stuffed into my seat."
Pros: "I liked the pilot who flew the 6.35 WS 1512 on Jan 3 rd to Toronto, which was delayed, and finally left at 7:19. It is the first time I flew on an airplane and barely felt any pain in my ear. The take off and the landing were professionally done. Kudos to that female pilot! The crew were quite hospitable and friendly as well. Thank you so much."
Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."
Pros: "I was very appreciative that the cabin crew went through the cabin prior to take off to check that everyone was wearing a mask properly (covering mouth AND nose). I flew United a few weeks ago and had to politely ask the person next to me both on return and departing flight to make sure the mask covered thier nose. A lot of people in the cabin weren't wearing masks properly and the crew didn't seem to care."
Pros: "The middle seat was left unoccupied to ensure social distancing."
Cons: "The sound wasn't working on the 2nd leg of my flight so I wasn't able to enjoy the music."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly American again"
Cons: "Better customer service at the gate."
Cons: "there was no social distancing"
Cons: "Lady at the gate barely paid any attention to the line. I had to ask her whether or now I can proceed"
Pros: "Yes the crow was good"
Cons: "The wifi should be free to use without paying for it"
Pros: "One member of the crew who focused on the back of the plane was pleasant and kind during a one hour delay on the tarmac."
Cons: "One member of the crew who focused on first class passengers complained about having to pick up trash, having to stay in Birmingham, and was just unpleasant. The AA system was down in Charlotte which effected everything. The attendant at the gate was very, very short with several passengers. There was not enough AA ground crew at our destination to allow us to embark. They couldn’t move the jetway and unload bags at the same time so we just had to sit there for 30 minutes. At 12:30am."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"
Pros: "I pay $30 more for my bags"
Cons: "I pay $30 more for my bags,"
Cons: "Phoenix airport is horrible for on time departures. Always."
Pros: "Most was pretty standard. We did arrive 30 minutes early, which was nice."
Cons: "My bag was checked at the gate, and I was told I could pick it up in Sint Maarten, my final destination. I arrived in Sint Maarten to learn that AA had left my luggage at Charlotte Airport, despite having landed 30 minutes early."
Pros: "More space in these seats than in other flights I’ve taken"
Cons: "Waited on the tarmac for over an hour before departure with very little explanation."
Cons: "Service was excellent"
Pros: "I like that I made it home alive."
Cons: "Everything about Departing and arriving was a Poor experience. I might not be using this particular airline again. 4 Airlines now on my list of do not use."
Pros: "No need to drive from OKC!!!"
Pros: "Fast and easy service"
Cons: "In 2 weeks, my husband and I had 4 flights with American and none of them went as planned. We endured flight cancellation, incomplete rebooking with another airline, rude customer service agents, multiple flight delays as well as multiple day lost luggage. Finally, it cost $2K more to get to my destination. Obviously not flying American again."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "At the end of three flights to obviously be understaffed and to have luggage take an hour and fifteen minutes is disrespectful and shows how AA is callous about it’s passengers needs."
Pros: "Entertainment streaming was decent."
Pros: "Rude staff at the check in counter both flights. Very disappointed in American"
Cons: "Rude agent at first check in and again at second check in"
Pros: "American did transfer us to another flight after several hours' delay."
Cons: "Lack of scheduled flight crew caused a 2 hour delay causing American to re-route us via Chicago in lieu of Phoenix. Still, arrived 2 hours later..."
Pros: "I like the cookies. Any flight that safely lands is a good flight. I didn't have to hear the inflight "entertainment". There was room for my backpack, and I was in group 6 on a nearly full flight."
Cons: "I hate having media flashed in my face. The srewardesses misses me when serving beverages, which is hard to imagine, and rarely happens. We had a particularly bumpy landing. I've flown a fair amount, and I thought our bouncing and jostling was unusual, but then weather is unpredictable - still... I've seen navy pilots stick landings of small planes in worse weather."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No personal space or legroom. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Great attendants. Easy ride. Easy take off, easy landing."
Cons: "We departed late due to something going on in the runway. No free wifi option."
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "I liked the seating on the first part of the flight and the snacks"
Cons: "The exit row seats were very confining g..way to narrow due to type of seat used..had the tray in the arm"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"
Cons: "I took a flight in 2016 from Newark New Jersey four times and I only went to Florence South Carolina one time. I ended up in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, another time in Columbia South Carolina and the last time in Charlotte North Carolina. Each time I departed I had to pay to come back to Florence South Carolina."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "1 hour on the runway for a 1 hour flight"
Pros: "No lines at checkpoints..on time departure and arrival!"
Cons: "The boarding calls seem excessive. So many specialty groups! Military in uniforms, people with this or that credit card, people in this or that club."
Cons: "The airline was rude and unaccommodating. They refused to let me get on a flight that was not leaving for 45 minutes. Then they try to tell me that I had to wait in the airport for five hours to get another flight. I booked passage with JetBlue"
Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Pros: "Stroopwaffles, TVs"
Cons: "They made me check my bag which was ridiculous. It’s been on numerous flights and was smaller than any other bag in the overhead bins"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly on board. The gate crew were a little curt, but it was a full flight and they were really trying to get everyone on board quickly so I can't be too upset about that."
Cons: "Few entertainment options - direct TV unavailable for about half the flight, WiFi also unavailable for the same."
Pros: "The transportation..."
Cons: "There's absolutely no leg room it's the smallest amount of room I have ever experienced on a plane - even the first class is eh - mediocre at best. I am slim and fit and I had very little to no room. Consider someone overweight and they would have to buy 2 seats... united is definitely not my favorite airline..."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Cons: "Airline did not provided information ahead of time related to carry on being checked on the gate bc of size. My carry on was small and still was checked at the gate because the aircraft did not have space for it. I was not provided with that information ahead of time"
Cons: "They didn't event get drinks out to the whole cabin from Newark to Boston. Paying for Internet was ridiculous for all the other fees I had to pay. There was NOTHING to o on the plane at all with out paying for it."
