Fee for check-in luggage is expensive ($25 for 1st piece and $35 for 2nd piece). In-flight food for purchase didn't look very appetizing. Overall I wasn't really expecting much for a short flight on a subsidiary of Air Canada.
Crew was good. Flight was early, which is good. Announcements and information were good - there was going to be a lot of turbulence and the crew made sure the passengers knew when to expect it and let us know when to get up and get necessary things done.
Food isn't free. Entertainment wasn't free. Seats are uncomfortable, not enough room to fit a healthy person (BMI 20). Customs documentation came out way too late - during the descent.
Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result.
The crew was excellent. Very attentive and witty. One flight attendant in particular went out of her way to take my 4 year for a walk to get snacks to give her something else to do. We also boarded the plane first as we had young kids which gave us ample time to settle our carry-on luggage and the kids before the rush of other travelers.
Not enough legroom in coach for families dealing with young kids where these kids invariably want to be in your lap and then ppl in front of you want to recline.....it is just uncomfortable. The other thing is that my trip to Barbados did not have the in seat TV and try as I might to download the plug in to my Surface so that I could watch from their Westjet connect it would not work so that made it difficult to help with passing the time with my kids. I am also a strong advocate for a decent meal on any flight more than 3 hours. I should not have to purchase meals after spending all that money on a plane ticket.
