Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "IT TOOK 50 minutes to get our suitcase on arrival in Vancouver"

Pros: "The crew were very accommodating as they were able to get me a wheel chair on short notice....thank you, thank you. The seat was not the best because the seat-back did not recline (we were seated in front of the EXIT row)....not good."
Cons: "A service of H20 should have been offered...especially when leaving very dry Palm Springs."

Pros: "Quiet flight. Great landing. Excellent staff on board"

Cons: "Because of Boeing disaster did not go to Halifax but were sent by Westjet to TO and then on with Air France. Boarding areas in TO are a long way away (lot of walking) and customs in TO is frustrating and takes a long time."

Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."

Pros: "The food was good and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "We could have used more legroom between the seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Always delays with this airline, hope their service improves now they have been bought out by Air Canada. Staff need training on how to deal with their delays, rather than the "I know as much as you" answer. Their staff have always pleaded blind ignorance when disruptions occur. AVOID."

Cons: "Food, food, food"

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and were having a good time during the flight, which was nice to see."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets supplied, luckily I had my own otherwise I would have been miserable. Worst surprise was that there was no food provided. On a long haul flight that was surprising, they should clearly say that on booking. There were snacks available for purchase, but not great."

Cons: "Total rip off. I won't be flying West Jet again if it can be avoided"

Pros: "For some reason, we found ourselves in the Premium section for our return flight from Palm Springs. So we got fed!! Which was nice. And we had a little more legroom, “spare seat” between us, etc."
Cons: "It was a short flight, only 2 1/2 hours, so you can’t really expect much. It’s the long flights where service really makes a difference."

Pros: "Yes, the crew was very good."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have coffee on the flight. All they had to offer was a snack and a glass of water."

Pros: "Staff was lazy"
Cons: "Horrible check in Rude Not sure if I’ll fly WestJet Luggage was wet when it arrived Luggage took forever to come to terminal"

Cons: "More water and a tv like air Canada"

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "The crew was fine. The seat was ok. A little cramped."

Pros: "Quick, easy, comfortable. No complaints"

Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Cons: "Seats were a very strange shape. They forced me to sit in a hunchback position the entire time. next to no leg room. A very tight uncomfortable space. The three hour flight was about the most I would have been able to handle. Worst seats I’ve seen in a while."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Rush through US customs going down do to late flight held plane"

Pros: "The crew was great overal. Great sport and attitude with humor."
Cons: "The flight in Ottawa was delayed twice which made me change my plans twice. The plane was also a little cold heading to Toronto. Otherwise the help from Paul getting checked in was fantastic. He made the bad situation of a delay worth it just talking with him and apologizing for the delay with true empathy . Thank you Paul"

Pros: "Pleasant and helpful stewardess. When they found out how stressful our day was with delays and being bumped around they offered us a free drink. Nothing crazy but it was kind of them."
Cons: "When our flights were delayed then changed we were left with no options other then being left with a 19 hr layover in Vancouver and missing the wedding. No apologies or vouchers offered. Air Canada gave $200 for a two hour delay to our friends, we were screwed over and offered nothing. So disappointed. We ended up flying to Vegas and renting a car and driving through the night to be on time. So sad!!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "That westjet q400 is an awful aircraft with terrible slimline seats"

Pros: "Crew and staff are pleasant."
Cons: "There was a typo in my reservation (either a WJ problem or a Kayak problem). As a result I couldn't do an online checkin and ended up getting a middle seat at the airport."

Cons: "prop- jet was loud & bumpy while on the ground at takeoff"

Pros: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."

Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"

Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"

Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."

Pros: "Helpfullness of Air Canada staff."

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry.

The boarding process was not good."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Pros: "Not anyone's fault --- delayed due to Fog. Then on rout to Ottawa when they started selling food, they ran out of the main breakfast meals and or cheese plates by isle 19."

Cons: "The fact i haven't boarded yet."

Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."

Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."

Pros: "When you plan travel over the Holiday season you expect hiccups and huge crowds and a lot of grumpy people in unrealistic hurries....his the me was not like that at all. Everyone was great except for security in Calgary!!! Don't know what the deal was but they set a record for the slowest I have EVER been in. It took so s almost an hour and there were not that many people in line...it was epic"

Pros: "Airbus 380"

Pros: "Same as anove"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."

Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."

Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Cons: "No good movies or music"

Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."

Cons: "Communication about the delay at SFO was really poor."

Cons: "It was excellent!"

Cons: "3 hour delay due to weather in SF. First time we heard about the reason was just prior to boarding."

Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."

Pros: "Cabin crew from Palm Springs to Bozeman superior. Flight attendant deliberate, kind, welcoming, attentive."
Cons: "Cannot wait for the day that each seat will have outlets for devices. So tired of having to figure out what device to charge in the very few outlets in the terminal, and then boarding with no outlets in seats. silly in 2019. And floor in entryway wasn't very clean when we boarded."

Pros: "Clean plane, nice staff"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight to SFO landed 7 min late. Wouldn’t let us on connecting flight to MRY. We were put on a land shuttle to MRY and now I’m car sick. Horrible day!"

Pros: "crew very friendly"
Cons: "cramped seating"

Pros: "Kayak provided excellent info during the trip about flights timings ! Marvelous !!!!"

Cons: "My seatmates and I were frozen for the whole flight, especially our feet - even with socks on."

Pros: "Free movies and TV shows through the United app"

Pros: "Our flight attendant was super kind and efficient."
Cons: "With such an early flight, our only "breakfast" option was one cheese and cracker food box for purchase. The aircraft was too cold. Even with my winter coat. Upon arrival at Denver, we had to remove our own luggage from the luggage shelf. On previous flights, an airline employee handed them out to us."

Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Pros: "I was happy to be able to get a flight on a flight that offered free entertainment through the United Mobile app. I just don't understand why your airline doesn't offer free internet and entertainment. It seems like a small price to pay to keep your passengers comfortable. Get with the program and the rest of the industry."
Cons: "Once again, United first changed my flight which increased my layover from a little over an hour to three hours, and then our flight was delayed by three hours, making our total layover time over six hours. United does this more than any other major airline. I am actually considering switching my United Mileage plus credit account to one of your competitors."

Cons: "the wait time. Sitting on the tarmac for 20-25 minutes in PSP waiting for LAX reaffix to clear. The worst is arriving at LAX at 8;39AM which is earlier than anticipated and not getting a gate opened until 9:25AM (approx) sitting on the runway not being told what is going on and when the captain does make an announcement it is to tell us he apologizes for the delay but then proceeds to announce that he and the crew have to go back and to PSP and LAX four more times. I found that inappropriate to tell us about his work schedule when Im trying to get to the gate for my connecting flight"

Cons: "First flight was late, so missed my connection. Waited 5 hours for next flight. United just doesn’t have the capacity to cover unexpected glitches."

Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "What brand of service is this? Are we actually customers? Why do I feel like the enemy every time I fly? Airlines are making record profits and we, THEIR customers are getting the shaft."
Cons: "There was a non rev captain who took it upon himself to move my overhead bags back six rows to accomodate a non rev flight attendant's bags...... almost missed my connection. WTF"

Cons: "Very limited leg room, very expesive entertainment - even for flight information ($US4/hour), no need to follow TSA rules (number and size of carry-on, placing carry-on under the seat, storing bags in overhead close to where you sit, etc.)."

Cons: "Seats were much too close. The passenger in front of me reclined his seat and his head was only a few inches from me."

Pros: "Easy, fast service. Arrived early."
Cons: "Sweet snack wasn't as good as savory snacks in the past."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Super delayed. 4 hours plus for a less than 2 hour flight. Unacceptable. Arrival at 3:15 am vs 11 pm."

Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "The fact that they over sell their flights but when you order them they say there are 3 seats left. So you show up to the airport and your flight lands with way more then enough time to get to work that day and younprint your ticket to find out you have no seat. That's because they sold more seats than they have incase someone didn't show up. But everyone did show up. So of course they find you another flight in LA which is a good 3+ hours away so you can spend another 3 hours to get to your gate to wait 2 more hours to go to take of so you can reach your destination making you late for work and making you call out. Just because they wanted to make sure every single seat was filled."

Pros: "Nobody in middle seat ...yay! Left on time arrived early. Passengers behaved"

Pros: "Charging availability for my devices on board."
Cons: "No wifi available!"

Cons: "No tv"

Pros: "Very nice crew, Clean and efficient. On time!"
Cons: "No movie screen."

Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Delayed leaving PSP. Delayed landing at SFO. THREE AND A HALF HOUR delay leaving SFO!!! FINALLY landed in RDD at 7:30 PM!!! Rental car counter CLOSED AT 5:30! STRANDED AT AIRPORT TIL AFTER 9 PM, when hotel shuttle could come get me! Missed seeing my mother, who is in a Skilled Nursing Facility here -- THE ENTIRE REASON FOR MY TRIP! And now I can't see her this morning either, because I have to take the hotel shuttle BACK TO THE AIRPORT to pick up the rental car that I PAID IN ADVANCE TO RESERVE BEGINNING YESTERDAY!!!"

Pros: "Generally it was ok. Travelling is so horrible these days that "ok" seems pretty great."
Cons: "My bag was lost but my husband's, checked at the same time, made it."

Pros: "That I made it alive"
Cons: "That the seats were very small and the person next to me could not fit into their seat"

Pros: "After reading ratings of the US Airlines, I wasn't expecting much of United. The only drawback to a 5 star run was the boarding process. The crew, food, and entertainment were all top notch."

Pros: "Friendly crew and easy boarding. Handled. Rude obnoxious passenger very well"
Cons: "Old, rundown feeling. Not real comfortable"

Cons: "Rude gate agents. Ryder flight attendants"

Cons: "Delayed!!!!!!"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Big delay due to weather but flight was good"

Pros: "Isle seat as empty but when i asked to move they told me i would have to pay over $100 and we were ready to take off so no one ever used the seat and i was smushed by the window the whole time."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "United did very little to accommodate our cancelation"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Original delay due to FAA rules regarding rest. Then plane wasn't fueled causing additional delay which cause us to miss our connection! Got to our destination over 5 hours late!"

Pros: "Crew and staff were great!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours so we had to move to next day."

Pros: "No complaints as both legs of my flight went very well. Smooth sailing the entire trip. No entertainment on flights and did not eat so can't truly rate this."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It wasn't on time to board"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Cons: "No help to reroute."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "comfortable seating."
Cons: "Having to pay for one piece of luggage Plus on small plane announcement should be made to watch heads when getting out of seat. I got up from window seat and smacked my head hard on overhead bulkhead. Got a big sore bump from that."

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."

Pros: "ease of into airport"

Cons: "Nothing in.patticular"
