Cons: "I almost missed the flight because I didnt hear the announcement for boarding and I was sitting near another gate to charge my phone. Fortunately I heard the final call!!"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was the worst I’d ever seen! No structure, only 1 person was taking tickets to board and would stop every third person to go back to the counter and checkndomething, holding up the entire boarding process. We were supposed to start boarding at 8:05, but started at 8:35...."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Cons: "I couldn’t sleep in a chair... wish I could"

Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"

The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."

Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."

Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Clam flight Nice crew"
Cons: "No complaints, completely satisfied!"
Pros: "the Ground team from Israel to New York was amazing and very helpful."
Cons: "Arrived to the airport over 2 hours early and was told that my husband and I were put on standby because Air France overbooked the flight. I told them this was unacceptable - we had purchased a ticket and had seats reserved. And, typically if a flight is overbooked, the airline will offer a later flight option to everyone at the gate with an incentive to change it instead of randomly choosing passengers to bump off. They were rude and unapologetic and instead of putting us on the next flight 2 hours later, they made us stand at the counter for over an hour until they waited for all the other passengers to check in. Then 45 minutes before the flight took off, they told us that 2 seats opened and we would need to run through security and to the gate in order to get it on time. They also didn't have seats next to each other -- so the window and aisle seats that we had reserved were given away and we both had middle seats on opposite ends of the plane. Even though they acknowledged that we did everything right and they chose us at random, Air France was completely unprofessional and rude throughout the entire process."
Pros: "It's what I didn't like....as a Sky Miles member I should get a free bag. Small aircraft for a FL trip."
Cons: "Announcements were difficult to hear. ?static"
Pros: "Good onboard service, comfortable seat, flight was timely."
Cons: "Preposterous delay at check-in for a sky priority and business class passenger, fully disorganized boarding procedure that staff don't know how to handle, and one female flight attendant in particular who chatted way too loudly with her colleagues during takeoff and landing."
Pros: "I flew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours"
Cons: "Are flight was delayed 1 hr. Due to a issue at Newark, this would of been ok, except the gate manager announced it was due to low cloud ceiling and visiability. I'd think you would understand any one look to see the status of flights in Newark on their phone and see visibility was a few broken and visibility 10. So lying only puts distrust in paasangeners!"
Pros: "Kind and professional! They took care of me before I even realized I needed tending too! They also have a great complimentary earlier flight policy if you decide you need to jump on a earlier plane - which I did. Highly recommend"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say! Great experience"
Pros: "Customer service with flight attendants"
Cons: "Long lines"
Cons: "Air hostess were mean even with a empty plane. It was dirty and no one cleaned it."
Pros: "Best service"
Pros: "The plane got me to where I needed to go. The crew was nice. Complimentary snacks/coffee in the waiting area is cool."
Cons: "I knew I was running late for boarding so I had to reschedule tickets to a later flight. I was very upset over having to pay a $350 change fee so I could board a plane an hour later that was less than half full. If Porter had any decent customer service, they would've been happy to put me on another plane like any other airline with no fee."
Pros: "See above."

Pros: "Lounge, flight, flight service"
Cons: "90 min late take off."

Cons: "ALWAYS LATE! Or Cancelled. Total turn off"
Pros: "I love the Porter Lounge in Toronto and Newark."

Pros: "On time good service 5 stars"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was great and the steam whistle was delicious."
Cons: "Uhhhhh see above. Horrible horrible airline!"
Pros: "The flight was very quick. I appreciated that the flight didn't take off until a lot of us were on the plane because the outside traffic delayed a lot of us from gettin there on time."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was rude. He was very demanding, wanted things done at his pace. And his sarcastic tone when asking passengers to do things like move their bags, or take out headphones to listen to the safety procedures; etc. were very unnappreciated. I've also never been tapped on the shoulder by a flight attendant and asked to take my headphones out to hear safety procedures."
Pros: "Great waiting area"

Pros: "Service is always good not to mention great prices as well."

Pros: "Free cookies"
Cons: "The flight crew seemed like they all hated their jobs"
Cons: "Though they have a lounge it was not in good shape. Trash cans overflowing, seat cushions filthy. I appreciate that they provide food for economy passengers in the lounge but, if you provide good in plastic containers you need someone to empty the trash-at the least."
Pros: "One of the most pleasant flights I ever had!"
Pros: "Comfortable experience. Porter Airport offered great city views of Toronto."
Pros: "I liked that there were free snack in the lounge and wine on the plane. The ticket agent was very helpful when the customer service phone line failed terrible. She saved me from writing in a scathing letter on how terrible my experience with customer service."
Cons: "I didn't like how my flight was delayed for 3 hours because of rain that wasn't in the area of where I was or going. FOR BOTH OF MY FLIGHTS! I didn't like how I was offered a $50 voucher for being diverted to Hamilton after all that time, which I was originally told that was good for a year and then found out it is only good for 6 months and non-transferable. Now I have a voucher I'm not gonna use in the specified time frame nor gan I give it to someone who frequents the airline."
Cons: "I was originally booked (booked flight on Feb 1) with a half hour layover and then had a flight change ( mid June) to a 4 hr layover taking off in a different plane. When I got off in Halifax, new passengers boarded to go to Ottawa...? Why remove an Ottawa bound passenger so you can replace with a different Ottawa bound passenger? Not cool Porter...."
Pros: "Free drink"
Cons: "Old dirty plane, very noisy, poorly maintained, late"
Pros: "Overall it was great"
Cons: "2 1\2 hours late on an 1 1/2 flight"
Pros: "Thank god, I found a gentleman at a different counter to help me. The lady at the counter said "not my problem as I did not cancel your flight, its the airline" !!!! Totally unprofessional"
Cons: "I booked an emergency ticket in the morning for a late flight to get in to newark for my sister's surgery the next day. The flight got cancelled, no email sent to me even though service counter people kept saying that they did. I am at the airport in a long line with only one counter open and the rep not even bothering to help me. I am a 60 year old from another country and have knee problems. Thankfully someone took mercy on me and helped me out to catch another flight so I could leave. Its unfortunate that flight cancellations happen in such a way without making sure the passengers are all contacted and alternatives made for them. it is also unfortunate the airport only does porter airlines and there are no other flights that can be made available when flights get cancelled"
Pros: "Free snacks, drinks."
Cons: "Nearly 2 hour delay :("
Pros: "Service was very good. Air hostess was courteous"
Pros: "I love that you are maintaining a classy trip, complete with leg room for all and glasses for beverages!! I am so impressed."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Our takeoff was delayed 3.5 hours because the plane was 'too warm to board.' This meant that I was stranded in Billy Bishop airport, which is a very small airport without much to do, while waiting for updates. Updates typically consisted of, "We should be able to board in about 10-15 minutes once the plane cools down." and then we would wait another hour for an update. We were offered a $50 food voucher for the small cafe 5 minutes before the cafe closed up shop. We were also offered a $50 voucher on Porter Airlines, which is an airline I have never flown before and don't intend to fly again."
Pros: "Speed and chips"
Cons: "Newark airport...."
Pros: "The complimentary coffee and water were a nice touch; just a very civilised way of treating passengers. Your lounge is terrific; the view great. Pleasantly surprised by the fact that you offer complimentary spirits on your Toronto-NYC flight -- an astonishing outlier in North America!"
Cons: "REALLY don't like the fact that international passengers who aren't US or Canadian passport holders can't web check in and reserve seats online. Couldn't you at least allow us to reserve a seat, if not actually web check in in advance? That way we wouldn't get relegated to crappy, leftover seats after everyone else has had a go at them! Finding power plug outlets for laptops in your Toronto lounge is a challenge. Elderly people have to bend down, peer under chairs, if they're lucky to see an outlet. Please consider designing accessible outlets that don't require strenuous bending, and a larger number of them. Disappointed that you don't as yet have European and Southeast Asian airline frequent flier network tie-ups. Qantas is good, but limited."
Pros: "The service, crew, complimenatry snacks, and everything about flying with a non u.s. company is just great."
Pros: "Price, Quality of refreshments, complementary alcohol, staff attitude. Billie Bishop airport is a gem - glad you fly there."
Cons: "Tickets are non-refundable."
Pros: "Travel from Canada to the US went fine. Please see the bad for my comment about the one angel gate agent."
Cons: "Travel home was a nightmare. I checked in. Went through security. Went to board and a glitch happened in their system with my layover. They checked me in 5 times and on the 6th a total meltdown. I was now a security issue. I've never been arrested or even have the slightest past. I am a thin woman carrying a banana bread and bagels, which I offered to relinquish as my personal item. They couldn't figure out the glitch in their system and didn't want the plan to be delayed so they started to let it begin the take off process. I asked, "WHAT ABOUT ME???" They said they'd put me on the next flight out. I knew it was canceled, so I told them that was a bad plan. They knew as well, but were trying to let the plane go without me. The main agent was awful. So rude and did not care if I was stuck in Canada all night for their technical issue from a 1pm flight. Some angel flight attendant overheard, put her foot down, hand wrote me a ticket and ran me on the plane. Got to my layover in Toronto. Spoke with a manager about the issues, she said they were all cleared up. Tried to board the plan, same thing happened again. No one in either airport knows why, but they all admitted it was an issue in their computer system and not actually with me."
Cons: "Need to use your own device for entertainment, no screens in flight."
Pros: "The plane was nice and quiet, and the crew was lovely."

Pros: "Everything borded on time. Cabin crew was very accommodating in allowing me to move seats to an empty row."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"
Pros: "Speed of Service"
Cons: "Wish flight attendants were demonstrated more interpersonal skills."
Pros: "No issues"
Cons: "Rough landing and held up the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Food v"
Pros: "Over all the flights were great. On time, smooth and friendly staff."

Cons: "Trip from Toronto to NYC should not be so long. Between boarding getting delayed to finding a gate in NY laguardia, it was just extremely exhausting."
Pros: "the crew are always great. the flight was on time and fast!"
Cons: "the whole "put your own tags on the bags and load them". we spent 5-10 minutes trying to figure it out. There was someone that came over to assist us and it was still not user friendly. there were not in flight television system. I guess I am spoiled now."

Cons: "No food and very warm on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 mins. We waited another 20 mins at the gate because there was another plane there. We only got cheetos as a snack."
Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."
Pros: "The women at the boarding kiosk were very good as they helped me to avoid the lineup for rebooking my flight. It was fast and rebooking through the website. Avoid calling them."
Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."
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: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"

Pros: "A few days before our flight to Halifax which was originally scheduled with a stop over in Toronto, we received an email from Westjet that they were putting us on the direct flight. This enabled us to avoid the Toronto bottleneck and get to our destination on time. Thank you Westjet."
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."
Pros: "Friendly crew, efficient"
Cons: "Delayed boarding."
Pros: "They were very accommodating. I used the call back feature a few times. All agents were courteous and made it easy to complete transactions. Our family was travelling for my grandmother's funeral we called several times over the course of a few days to book for various family members."
Cons: "There was no communication/correspondence when the flight was delayed. They took contact numbers plus there was an email provided, yet nothing."
Pros: "It was a little tight seated in plus row but i should not complain because you don't get to sit beside anyone. Would like that they served tea since I was dying with a bad cold. Staff were professional and the head flight attendant took charge of the plane very professionally. I'll fly again with west jet because air Canada crew can be miserable."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 30 minutes"
Pros: "Many things were great, the crew especially. I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing was horrible about the trip."
Cons: "There was a delay that was weather related. The entertainment system was good, but old, and had some glitches."
Pros: "Not much. Was happy to finally get home. Really smooth landing in Regina from Calgary. Flight crew was jovial and entertaining"
Cons: "Absolutely hate the seats!!!!!"
Cons: "Reservation went smoothly as dealt directly with WestJet to book flight. Staff all very friendly and helpful. I do find the food is less than desirable for snacks. Could there not be some recycling on all the waste generated on a flight?"
Pros: "He was funny, thorough, and a very fluent bilingual guy."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, roomy seats, arrived on time."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great!"
Pros: "The flight crew puts you at ease especially knowing that the weather might have been rough"

Cons: "No food, needs improvement"
Pros: "everything was good Always enjoy flying with West Jet"
Pros: "Flight crew gave all passengers complimentary beverage upgrades for the flight delay, and I enjoyed the wider selection of drinks throughout the flight."
Cons: "Okay, so there was a delay due to a weather issue, but there is no reason for the counter agent to give me the attitude when I asked if there was an earlier flight as my flight was already delayed. I had to wait at the airport for hours without any sort of compensation. I feel WestJet's customer service is in par with that of budget airlines such as Ryanair or Spirit airlines."
Cons: "The only real qualm had to do with delays which is not the fault of the airline...I think."

Cons: "Boarding, took very ling, apparently waiting for a first official"
Pros: "A few seat empty xso we all could stretch"
Pros: "attention, meal with wine, on time"
Pros: "Amazing airline ! Great everything."
Cons: "Worst customer service, ticket reps are rude and lack any kind of sympathy. Flight attendants were rude and inattentive. I will never fly Aeromexico. I will avoid it like the plague. If you can go through another airline."
Pros: "Quick boarding, takeoff and loading off the plane."
Cons: "I paid additional fee for preferred seating and my seat did not recline."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about my experience."
Cons: "I booked round trip ticket's to Cancun from NYC. I had a change of plans . I needed to add my 2,4yr old to my trip.The Aromexico agent wanted to charge me over 1000.00 for the two children, to travel with me even though online the tickets were $200.00.They would not let me book my tickets online because the children were minors even though my ticket was already bought. I ended up purchasing tickets on delta to get to Cancun. However I was under the impression that I would return with Aeromexico on the round trip ticket I had already bought.NO! according to Aeromexico even though you buy a round trip ticket if you fail to use 1 leg of the trip you loose both ways WHAT! Then they refused to allow me to speak to a supervisor it was hands down the worst experience I have ever had with an airline in the 30 yrs that I have been traveling internationally. I would paddle boat rather than use this air again."

At this point it was 3AM and all passengers were told to call Aeromexico's support number to re-book their flights. Aeromexico staff does not speak English well and when I asked them to speak slower I was cursed at and hung up on. I finally called again and was given 2 options: agree to a flight that would DESTROY my vacation or get a refund. Scared and exhausted, I told them I didn't understand, and the flight didn't work, and guess what, they re-booked me anyway, and said that since I was re-booked any change to my ticket would entitles them to my entire $1,100 fare. Aeromexico is a criminal enterprise. Never book with them! Kayak, you should cut all ties with this airline!"
Pros: "I like the service on my way back home. The movies were up to date."
Cons: "On my way to mexico wasn't as pleasant because i wasn't served anything to drink. The flight attendant asked me but then walked away and never returned."
Pros: "Vegan vegetarian food option. Ability to pay extra for more legroom in coach."
Cons: "After the announcement at the gate to prepare to board, we went to wait on line (Group 2). However boarding did not begin until more than 45 minutes later. I did not appreciate standing in line for that long. There were no announcements from the gate staff about the delay. This seemed disrespectful to the many people waiting on line."
Cons: "I had purchased a ticket to fly from Puerto Escondido to Mexico City on Thursday, November 24. When I arrived at the airport, I came to an airport that was "shutdown". According to a few people I spoke to, it was because of a protest. I was not emailed or notified that I was wasting my time and money trying getting to an airport that wasn't flying out any planes that day. I was very distraught and disappointed because I am a foreigner and there was no representative front the airport or airline that this was happening and what's are the next steps I should take to get on the next plane back to United States. I spent hours and hours calling Aeromar about rebooking my flight for tomorrow so I can get out of this city. It was a nightmare on the phone because it was like the employees were trained not to help. I was told it wasn't their fault, and I need to call aero Mexico to get this straightened out. Not one employee from the many I spoke to consistently throughout the day tried to rebook my flight. They wanted me to pay for another flight which is absolutely ridiculous. I missed my flight because of some protest, something not in my control, and i kept being told too bad. I did not get offfere one solution by your staff. I was left to figure what I was going to do by myself. I didn't leave Puerto Escondido until 24 hours after I was suppose to and it was not by the help of your staff. Because of this, I will highly consider not buying tickets from this airline of their is any other option because it was an awful experience. One of He aero Mexico employees told me to stop acting childish because I was upset about missing my flight for reasons i didn't control. The customer service for aero Mexico was worse then aeromar. They kept blaming aero mar and kept saying they need to figure everything out, yet these two airline work together. Aero Mexico is the one that helps get the flight to other smaller cities. All around I had a miserable day and not one person I called from aero Mexico, like aero mar helped me or offered a solution."
Cons: "Food was bland and 1st class was similar to a domestic flight to Fort Lauderdale from NYC"
Cons: "Seats felt very small"
Pros: "The seats were extremely comfortable. They provided free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was fine and our luggage went straight Through to New York."
Pros: "Aeromexico is the worst airline ever!!! I will never fly with this airline ever again! They made me pay another flight to get back home because of a mistake from one of their staff!! They are so incompetent and they take advantage of the fact that we have to go home..... so disappointed!!"
Pros: "On time. Comfortable. Curtious."
Cons: "No pillows and blankets provided on flight. Flight was extremely cold. No option to book seats upon booking flight."
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight was outstanding. Spacious, nice temperature, and good movie selections."
Cons: "The boarding process wasn't the greatest. They only had 2 or 3 kiosks available for bag check-ins but they had 3 international flights all around the same time. The line was ridiculous."
Pros: "Great flight, comfortable"
Pros: "I enjoyed that my kids had a great movie selection and food."
Cons: "I absolutely found it ridiculous how they board the plane. They did it both times coming and going. They didn't call anyone by zone they just allowed anyone to board at any time so I was in row 9 and people in row 20 boarded before me. What sense did that make."
Pros: "the only good service is the way the crew treats you"
Cons: "All the flights in on the round trip were delay. on the first flight going to my destination, the airline switch gates twice. the seat on the plane were uncomfortable. had to get back massage once i got home. on my way back to new york. A 80 minute layover in mexico city turn into a 230 min layover."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed but we got to our destination early. Lots of turbulance but the pilot flew in such a way that you barely felt it."
Cons: "Took 2 hours for the bags from our plane to get to the belt. Landed at 10:30pm and didnt get our luggage until about 12:45. There was 2 planes that landed right after us and all their baggage was on the belt within 10 minute!"
Cons: "We were stuck for appx 2 hours on the tarmac before deplaning. Then the baggage took another 2 hours to start unloading after our flight waited with no notice as to what was happening with our belongings."
Pros: "Aeromexico sucks"
Cons: "Flight information for our connecting flight at Mexico City was ridiculous. Almost missed flight to NYC due to no display of: departure time, which section of Terminal 2 to be in, gate number displayed on departure screen. We were also mis-directed by Aeromexico employees MULTIPLE TIMES WE ASKED that we were in the "right place" when our actual flight was in a DIFFERENT section of the terminal. NO INFORMATION about gate # was displayed in the section we were in. HOW CAN THAT BE WHEN WE WERE IN THE SAME TERMINAL?!!!! No markings noting which area (M? S?) in the terminal. Flight crew not very friendly. Very brusque manners."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good service, convenient schedule, personal entertainment available"
Cons: "A broader selection of new movies releases would be great"
Pros: "Great service from Aeromexico staff, & good food Tech friendly (charging station for phone/tablet) tvs. Comfy Seats"
Cons: "The only complaint I have about Aeromexico is the overlay. The time you have to spend waiting for your connection flight is a little to much. Otherwise my trip was great"
Pros: "I liked it because the fly was on time"
Cons: "The part I didn't like was that my fly had a connection in Monterrey Mex. and I had to wait for about 11 hrs on my fly from Monterrey to my destination ( Mexico City)"
Pros: "Overall the service was nice. It's a shame that the negative had to detract so severely from what was an otherwise nice trip."
Cons: "I'd been warned that Aeromexico is notorious for baggage weight overages. When returning to JFK from Mexico City, I was lucky with my checked bag, but when boarding the flight, an employee had me put my carry-on, my purse, the heavy wool coat I had removed during security, along with a 1.5L bottle of water and other items I'd purchased in the terminal, on a scale, then declared my carry-ons were 4 kilos over the airline's allowance. I then had to head down the terminal to a customer service desk to pay ~$60USD so I'd be allowed to board and not miss my flight. I was the last person on-board. They didn't do this at JFK on my 1st leg of the trip, as I suspect they know they'd never get away with this in the States. I spoke to employees aboard the flight, then at JFK upon arrival, and also on the phone. No luck yet regarding a refund for highway robbery."
Cons: "The JFK airport has no connection between terminal 1 where the domestic flight arrives with terminal 4 where the international flight zone is. I had to take a train from terminal 1 to 3 and then go outside the airport, walk on the street for 3 blocks and get into the airport again. Once inside terminal 4 nobody could help us (we were 20 people doing the same connection) and we went from one person to other asking what to do next and nobody knew. We were so afraid of losing our flight. Finally one police person helped us and we had to pass check point again when we had to take our shoes and be scanned again. Then we had to run because the plane was leaving. This was the worst traveling experience in my whole life. I tweet about it and I had no response."
Pros: "Quiet engines and tinted controlled windows"
Pros: "Clean and modern cabin. There seemed to be more leg room than on other aircraft, maybe due to the fact that the seats were not as bulky. Flight crew very nice and professional. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not check in online or at the check in kiosk at the airport terminal. My family and I travel with carry on luggage only, but we still had to wait on a long check in line to get boarding passes even though we were not checking any luggage."
Cons: "My flight was an early morning flight 8 am. I needed to get up at 5 am to get ready for this flight. AC notified me 5:05 am that my flight delayed 3 hrs to 11am. I wish they told us the night before so no need to get up that early."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Please train this guys for customer service and fix there attitude."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good and seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing because there were few or no announcements of which zone was boarding, and it wasn't clear exactly which desk to proceed to for boarding"
Cons: "given that Air Canada's computer had crashed and flights were cancelled (including our own), the lack of information was astounding. Why, e.g., didn't anyone go along the queue handing out numbers so people could get food then reclaim their place in line? Why weren't we told, ditto, how long this mess would take to clear up? why weren't we offered o/n stays, etc, etc. Could have done an awful lot better if some manager had spent two minutes thinking!!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, leg room adequate. Crew helpful."
Cons: "The young child that screamed for the first two hours of the flight. The man in the seat behind me that coughed loudly constantly for 5.5 hours. No sleep on an overnight flight. Gluten free options not available for me and my wife. We tried to book these before the flight but we're not allowed access for this. Flight entertainment system froze and had to be reset, resulting in blank screens for the first 30 minutes or so."
Cons: "Not impressed with luggage fees that were not indicate but hidden in price - and all the nickle and diming on every little thing.. ruins the overall experience"
Cons: "Our luggage didn't scan in the system so we couldn't go to the gate until it was found & scanned in the system. Fortunately we were early so this wasn't an issue but kept us waiting at "step 2" until an actual photo could be found. We also had a delay after boarding while they changed a tire. It all worked out ok."
Cons: "When there is a delay, even when weather related, show some empathy and feed stranded passengers!"
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "It was a short flight and I shared my seating with average weight people. The crew members and the pilots were very informative."
Cons: "During a short flight there is not much to experimented and less to comment."
Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "A 12 hour delay is not okay. The hotel comp was nice but they split my group of 5 into different hotels. The breakfast voucher did not work. The dinner voucher barely covered the cost at the designated restaurant. Customer service was extremely unaccomadating."
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: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Cons: "The service"
Cons: "They could have rushed more to get us off the ground quicker."
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Free snacks , on board entertainment, friendly warm crew."
Cons: "Workers never helped to get us on our flight even though the delay was caused by Air Canada's technology errors. Had to pay $200 for a rebooking fee , rather than accommodating us for Air Canada's error. Highly disappointed after hearing such great things about this airline."
Pros: "The process from start to finish was very well coordinated. Crew kept passengers informed of situation as they arises due to matters beyond their control while maintaining the integrity of Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight was originally delayed by 30 minutes.. reasonable considering the high winds in both NYC and Toronto. Things started going wrong after we boarded the airplane and then were told the flight crew had not yet arrived from LGA. There is simply no excuse for airlines not keeping sufficient standby crew capacity to minimize these issues. This is a clear case of the airline under staffing at the expense of its customers. By the time the flight crew arrived we were just barely able to make the 8:45 wheels up time for our clearance. The flight to LGA was uneventful until we landed. We were then told our gate was occupied by another plane, a delay that was initially forecast to be a few minutes turned into what seemed to be close to an hour. As a result, I arrived home to my Manhattan apartment at least two hours later than I should have. Flight delays happen, I accept them when they are for reasons that cant be avoided... I look for other airlines (such as united) when they occur for entirely preventable reasons and result in back pain from being trapped in an airline seat for 3+ hours instead of the 1hr 15 or so I should have been stuck in the seat."
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: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
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."
Pros: "Once, on board everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not being made aware of the real departure time ahead of time."
Pros: "Replacement flight was fine but third time original flight in early afternoon to LGA cancelled in the last eighteen months."
Cons: "Flight ac714 was cancelled. Put on AC716 which put me at LGA in evening rush hour."
Pros: "Love the look of the Halifax Airport after its renovations , brighter than it used to be, Check-in and boarding went very quickly The plane took on extra fuel just n case we had a layover in Toronto because of poor weather but that didn't happen"
Cons: "The possibility of a layover in Toronto because of poor weather lol"
Pros: "Good service...plane clean....attendants very attentive to all passengers!"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
Pros: "The friendly service."
Cons: "When my baggage arrived a zippered pocket was open and a an antique compass that my father (who just passed away) left me was taken. I contacted Air Canada who said that they couldn't do anything about it, they only allow claims for lost baggage. I was heartbroken, and there is nothing Air Canada can do about securing passengers baggage from thieves. Very disappointed with the lack of support with this issue."
Pros: "I arrived home safely. I needed"
Cons: "I needed assistance as I have a broken ankle. Waited, waited and waited some more for assistance. Handed off 5 times until I got to the gate. Given a seat first in the exit row and naturally had to have that changed as I could not assist others. Placed even further back in the plane. It took the full three hours plus since deplaning the Austrian Air flight to get to the Air Canada gate."
Cons: "We were not on this flight. We ended up being routed through Ottawa. See comment above."
Pros: "My flight was cancelled suddenly and my luggage are lost. I stayed at the airport until 4.am."
Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."
Cons: "Delayed flight rough landing"
Pros: "The gate crew and the ticketing crew tried hard to be helpful. The Air Canada system did not support them. At 4:50 pm, after over an hour of delay, it was announced at the gate that the flight was cancelled, that we had to pick up our luggage, and that we needed to talk with a ticket agent. At 5 pm I talked to a ticket agent who said that something was being done to accommodate us but that there was no information on the computer system. I should come back at 5:30 pm. I did and people were being told the same thing. At 6:00 pm, after having discovered that there was a WestJet plane leaving at 7 pm, I was told by the ticket agent that the system was still not showing me. I left an bought a ticket on WestJet and arrived in Toronto at 8 pm eastern. I am now looking for a refund."
Pros: "Comfort, service, flexibility"
Pros: "I volunteered to be bumped and was well compensated. Crew was friendly, Halifax airport staff even more so."
Cons: "No food was offered. Quality of entertainment was mediocre. Although it was asked that we put on our seat belts, it was never confirmed we were going into ordinary turbulence. You don't want to feel like it's urgent."
Cons: "It was a very hot flight"
Pros: "Crew were great and friendly."
Cons: "Delayed flight. My 3rd delayed flight with Air Canada since July."
Cons: "Don't understand why we were forced to board the plane even though it was clear we couldn't fly out. Sitting in the plane for 3 hours was not fun considering the flight itself is 1 hr!"
Pros: "Flight was late both going and coming back"
Pros: "Plane/equipment condition"
Cons: "The Aur Canada ticket counter and gate agents in Toronto are consistently the rudest employees in the travel industry"
Pros: "Customer service was polite and diligent (although it took 35 minutes)."
Cons: "We booked a pair of tickets to fly YYZ-LGA. Only problem, my wife got bumped from the outbound flight(I swapped with her). This was despite having booked more than a month in advance, checking in the night before and arriving 2 hours early. To make it worse, we were told that I'd be able to get on the next flight out. So I sent my wife ahead and was then told that I couldn't make it on the next flight, or likely the flight after. Not ideal when you are heading to a wedding. They printed me a ticket for the 2pm flight (our orig flight was 8am). Through a stroke of luck I was able to get in the last row of the 12pm flight. I was offered compensation, but am miffed that our party was broken up (one was bumped), the staff at the gate gave me the wrong information and I wasn't able to be put onto an earlier flight. Further, I was told that if I paid for advanced seat selection, I would've made it on the flight."
Cons: "Excellent service on time and friendly workers"
Cons: "Unable to do advance seat selection unless you book directly with AC. Kayak needs correct this. AC doesn't recognize the Kayack file Numbers. Next time I'll book directly with AC"
