Pros: "Horrible check in"
Cons: "Rude staff"

Cons: "When landing on final approach close to the ground, the pilot pulled up and passed the airport. It was almost 10 minutes before he got on the intercom and told us what was going on. Apparently traffic control told him there was a backup and to circle around. Not knowing what the situation was, was very nerve racking. It would have been nice to hear an announcement of the situation sooner."

Cons: "Food not so great Also wanted music. Was none"

Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."

Cons: "Tiny chairs"

Pros: "Option to watch movies on your device"

Cons: "Crew was not the nicest, especially when asking for non purchase items like water."

Pros: "Staff and aervice was great! No complaint!"
Cons: "We had to put our carry on bags a little far away from our seats"

Cons: "I dislike that westjet tried to get me to pay for my seats when I initially bought the ticket, only to discover later that the seats are free if I choose them at check in. I didn’t pay the seat charge but there is a breach of trust in them trying to con me that makes me not want to fly with them again."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Who decided that seats should be shaped that way? Always gives me a backache."

Cons: "Transferring between distant terminals in LAX was a pain. I'm glad that I had a long layover between flights to make the journey that required leaving and re-entering security."

Pros: "Good service easy boarding luggage came out as soon as we were off the plane when you are on vacation last thing you need is to wait for your bags great job all around"

Pros: "Pleasant staff, ample room, ability to charge devices. On time"

Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"

Cons: "Appalled that I was approached by two flight attendants separately to turn off my light in order to accommodate another passenger as the light was bothering them on a night flight. I pay premium pricing for the Plus seat so I have extra room to work. I chose not to turn off light in order to work, then flight attendants allowed the passenger to approach me. Really unacceptable to put me in uncomfortable interaction, making me play bad cop. I was sitting behind passengers talking loudly who were using profanity. My solution? Earphones. This is a commercial flight - offer passengers eye covers, some solution, or tell them to deal with it, or tell them to charter a private plane. Don’t tell us to sacrifice what we pay for, because you can’t do your job. Lost a loyal customer."

Pros: "The plane wasn't full."
Cons: "The crew was late."

Cons: "Too many delays."

Pros: "Very helpful employees letting us know procedure of bosrding"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "No TV screens, but there was an alternate"

Pros: "I upgraded and that was definitely worth it."

Cons: "Being late into LA"

Cons: "if the Monitor would work and not 1 hr late"

Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"

Cons: "They didn't even let me check in. Spent 12 extra hours at the airports to get home."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."

Pros: "Attendants came around multiple times to help. Great pay menu items. Service desk explained the plane would be full and I should check my bag so I could not stress about finding space in a compartment."
Cons: "Ran out of some pay menu items. one headphone jack was loose and didn't function correctly. Wide attendants are too used to there jobs and just plow through aisles bumping anyone a bit too close to the walkway instead of moving sideways. More concerned with corralling bodies and going through the motions."

Pros: "I liked how we got there safely."

I ran all the way to my gate to discover that the plane took off 10 minutes earlier than it was supposed to. I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour. I was grateful but at the same time I was kind of displeased that he didn't offer that to me originally."
