Cons: "Food, food, food"
Pros: "Great and responsive crew, still-amusing WestJet wit. Very organized!"
Cons: "Some older (like 1940s-1950s) movies for in-flight entertainment would have been great."
Pros: "It booked the wrong date and I had to repurchase the ticket. So all the savings were lost plus a ton more. Last time I use this service."
Cons: "The date and flight I picked were the right ones. I’m sure it was my own fault so it is what it is. I’ll just book through the airlines directly and pay the extra money and ensure the flight is the day I picked."

Cons: "Timing. The flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Crew was fabulous."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and hard."

Cons: "Crying baby on board ..."
Cons: "Sitting at departure gate waiting for two passengers to get kicked off, hard landing"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Enough space for long legs."
Cons: "Need more variety in snacks on the longer trips."
Pros: "So poorly organized at boarding ! Staff on the ground that where lazy ! On board staff where lazy ! Waiting for luggage took over 40 mins. Horrible ! Good thing I've had other flights that where much better."

Pros: "crew was exceptional"
Pros: "Efficient, cost effective and chill flight process"

Cons: "Staff updated my status to Deaf passenger without my knowledge. I am not Deaf, my hearing is fine and I understand English perfectly. I have no problem understanding the safety messaging. I am mute, I can't talk, that's all. I try not to misrepresent myself so that I don't take resources from Deaf people, so this frustrated me. also, I guess WestJet changed food policy again, now MUST pre order food, because no food was available on the flight if not Plus."
Pros: "Westjet service and staff are friendly and helpful as always."
Cons: "The delay waiting to have the plane deiced before departure was a bit of a pain, but I also know this is out of control of the airline or the airport for that matter. It is something that can happen with the weather, so we just have to be patient."

Cons: "the seats are a bit confining."
Cons: "If it was noted that there would be luggage fees when I was booking I didn't see it."
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"

Pros: "On time & pleasant people."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Plus and I don't think I can ever go back. Worth every penny."

Pros: "Crew was excellent especially Taylor"
Pros: "Staff was kind as usual. Some channels didn't work so they gave us complimentary movies."

Pros: "Wonderful crew-from the gate to the plane! Everyone was polite and helpful. I will definitely fly WestJet again."

Cons: "The snack and drinks were not at the same standard as everything else. I expected to be better in prep economy. There was no entertainment also on board while the internet was not free"
Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."
Cons: "UNcomfortable seats. They don’t recline."
Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"

Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like"
Pros: "One of the crew members was excellent, kinder than most. My bag made it on the flight in spite of the delay and very tight connection."
Cons: "No plugs in regular economy class makes it hard to use the United app for entertainment."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay to get in the plane then we were told to sit on the tarmac for another hour. Pilots had no sense of urgency tying to make up any of the time. Flight attendant was extremely rude and condescending."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."
Pros: "My seat"
Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."
Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaos. By the time my group is called, an announcement is made about running low on overhead space and some may need to check in their carry ones. Happens on every United flight? On the flight from Vancouver, the wifi wasn't even working."
Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."
Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"
Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"
Pros: "Flight crew were very helpful."
Cons: "too many people on flights."
Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"
Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"
Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"
Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."
Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."
Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"
Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."
Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."
Cons: "The seats had no infotainment system No food Cramped"
Cons: "We were trying to print our boarding passes and computer didn't recognize our bar code. United employees were trying to help us and they couldn't print it either until we approched counter. We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and 45 minutes because engine did not start. Had us deplane. Caused us to miss our connecting flight and we had to wait 6 hours for another one."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"
Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."
Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays. That was after not noticing issues with the plane until after waiting for late passengers and taxiing out. We arrived 4hrs late for a 3hr flight. They also only had one agent to rebook flights and assign hotels at the end even though they had hours to know the connections would be missed."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Cons: "The plane is very old"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "This flight was delayed an hour as United had maintenance issues with the plane. United sadly has a bad reputation for deferred maintenance on its planes in order to cut costs. They don't care about customer satisfaction, just the bottom line."
