Pros: "I booked Cathay pacific but they changed to China Southern without any notification."
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Pros: "This is a no frills flight that does not offer food or entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are always uncomfortable as it is a smallplane"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff and service."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."
Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."
Pros: "The staff were super helpful and friendly, and the accommodations were clean and decently comfortable!"
Cons: "The food was very pricy and not that great. Also the boarding took a long time and seemed a little unorganized."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"
Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"
Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "Thankfully our flight wasn't 100% full. Our baby got a seat to herself, which allowed her to sleep the whole trip, ans my legs didn't fall asleep from her weight. Blessing! The staff were very accomodating and friendly for parents travelling with young children."
Cons: "Internet was down so not entertainment whatsoever. Planes of any size or length of travel should have at least a few tv's so we can watch something to pass the time. Cookies are surprisingly delicious, but your choice between pretzels and cookies are very limiting (and boring). Another option would be much loved."
Cons: "Let me see, waited over an hour for a flight to catch up from Ottawa. Now flight to Vancouver over an hour late, gets in about 10 minutes before flight to Hong Kong leaves. So they say will wait for us as flight not full. Nope, flight leaves without 7 of us. Got the " don't know what happened" look. So they give us a $60 dollar food voucher, and take us to hotel because now must wait 12 hours for next flight. Tell us to be in lobby at a certain time to catch shuttle back to airport. Time comes, sorry no room, and buggers off. They call taxis, when drivers find drive for vouchers, tell us to load own baggage! Not likely to fly West Jet again."
Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."
Pros: "On time. Crew was great"
Cons: "Took a long time for the ground crew to set up the bridge which caused delay in deplaning"
Cons: "I'm a bit disappointed by the services provided by Westjet: 1) I never received the confirmation of my fight/booking from Westjet; 2) I was not aware that the connecting from LA to SJ and SJ to LA were operated by different companies therefore I was not able to check in or even to check the gate information at the airport. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA in the early morning 3) at the SJ airport, I was not aware that the flight from SJ to LA was operated by Delta not American airline. However, the Westjet customer services 1-888 number listed in your Kayak confirmation was not a correct number. I even tried to look up another customer services number of Westjet by searching the Westjet website, the number I found was not in service neither. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA 4) At the LA airport I was told that I was not able to board the flight because I did not have the Canadian ETA. they said they would pull my checked luggages and flight them with my re-scheduled flight and will be shipped to the final destination Vancouver, Canada. when I arrived Vancouver, both suitcases were not arrived with my flight. One arrived with my original flight and the second were missing. The agent could not even tell me where the suitcase was. Moreover, the second did not arrive the time I was told it should arrive. My second suitcase was not allocated even before I left Vancouver to Europe one day after my travel. 5) No one responded to the luggage services number provided in the document. I could only successfully login to the link for the checking the status after I returned home in Brussels. 6) I was told that the second suitcase will be delivered to my home in Europe by another company. Currently I'm still waiting for my second suitcase."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
Pros: "The crew and their attitude"
Cons: "The planes are worn out with the result that they often have mechanical problems. When the new promised planes arrive this will be a great service. The saving grace of the current service really is the personnel, unlike US carriers if they can help they will."
Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Cons: "Could not get the Westjet Connect Panasonic video plug-in to install properly on my upgraded Windows 10 laptop. Had to watch movies on my tiny mobile phone screen."
Pros: "Flight was mostly comfortable"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work so there was no inflight entertainment on a 5 hr flight."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Being disabled I found everyioine very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "row to myself"
Cons: "no free wine!"
Cons: "During my booking I ended up with my return flight being on the same day as my departing flight. I was surprised that this was not noticed as I would not have even reached Vancouver before I was scheduled to return. My fault too as I did not look at the tickets when I printed then off before we left Fortunately there was only a 120.00 charged to change our tickets. I am just thankful my husband noticed the day before we got to the airport to come home as the flight was totally booked."
Cons: "tow ticky packs of snaks in 5 hours flight"
Cons: "When we were checking in, they told us we had not payed for our seats and the flight was full so we could not sit together? I did not understand that. Long overnight flight so I was counting on my wife and I leaning on each other to get some sleep so that was no so good."
Pros: "friendly service. Both ground staff and attendants"
Pros: "First time to travel with Westjet, overall Very nice experience"
Cons: "Where to begin, the flight was continually delayed with no good explanation and ended up being about 3 and a half hours late, the seats are uncomfortable, the screens are tiny, you have to pay for each movie, no meals are included, have to pay for ANY checked baggage... What is this, Ryanair. No coupons or anything for them being so late, and we were moved to different seats. STAY AWAY FROM WESTJET. Never flying with them again ever."
Pros: "How nice the staff are"
Cons: "Landing was abit rough"
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally clean (looked almost new) and the flight attendants were pleasant and a bit funny. Really great experience."
Pros: "I am Military so you will undert Atand when I say I travel a lot. Westjet offers free checked bags for Military. Everyone down the line acts like they are interested in you as the customer. Line they know you, the customer, is why thier business exists. The seats even had plugs to charge devices rather that screens and thier in-flight app had all the content you normally get from the screen. That is a simple and cost efficient way to solve in flight entertainment. Everyone is already carrying a good screen with them, or several. Why provide one?"
Cons: "If you have ever flown with Air Canada, or know someone who has, you can appreciate Westjet."
Cons: "Free beer. O, wait you had that!"
Pros: "Actively? The crew was fairly attentive. Not much else."
Cons: "Very little refreshment. No entertainment on a 5.5 hour flight."
Cons: "our flight originated on Delta atKCI. WE reseved seats on West Jet, but they told us Delta would issue our boarfing passes. Delta issued those passes for the eats requested from West Jet. At the boarding gate West Jet indcated they needed a different form(cardboard) , but they split up our party of three into three different locations. Never will I fly West Jet again and will tell others thinnking of doing so what they did to us. The flight itself was O.K."
Pros: "Airbus is clean and new. Depart on time."
Pros: "The food is terrible no choices you can tell nothing is fresh they did not even have enough white wine"
Cons: "My baggage got destroyed and they did not wanted to refund it. (I am not sure if it was the correct flight). I submitted a claim but thet rejected it."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Ground staff need tourist training"
Cons: "9 hour delay"
Pros: "The large plane that I was on was great. Comfortable and a smooth ride. Movies were good. Drinks good."
Cons: "Food could be a little better."
Pros: "Nothing at all, we were left in Mexico with an under 2 years old boy. Reason, apparently we were late but we were not and simply Aeromexico probably oversold tickets and put others in our seats"
Cons: "To resolve our problem. Supervisor was so disrespectful and treated us so badly we had to get ao mad at them so we could get at least a hotel to spend 17 hours until our next flight which they wanted to provide"
Pros: "Entertainment on the long haul was good, no entertainment on the fight from Mexico City to La Paz"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes"
Pros: "Crew on board is nice, price is good"
Cons: "A lot can be improved, the food is bad, counter personal in NY is not empathic at all. I prefer not to pay for that food and bring mine. Your seats should be declared torture instruments"
Cons: "Attendants were rude or looked at me like I was inconviniencing them. Not good service at all."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was mediocre."
Pros: "Enjoyable flight with great crew!!!"
Cons: "Flight delayed. They were moving us from door to door. My connecting flight was delayed too. The flight was supposed to leave at 1am when ended up leaving and hour past that plus a lot of children were traveling in that flight and I don’t think it was okay to be moving all these families around from door to door. It was 2am this children needed to be sleeping on Thebes plane that was supposed to leave at 1am. Really disappointed."
Cons: "So late all the time"
Cons: "Delayed our flight and we missed our connection. They made us pick up our bags and wait overnight outside the terminal. It was cold (no doors). Only concrete slabs to sit on. It’s our honeymoon...no compensation given. Not even a blanket"
Pros: "The cabin was kept quiet, dark and orderly for the night flight."
Cons: "Same as above. The seat in economy is truly an endurance test. No way to go to sleep."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and staff are very nice"
Pros: "The food, space and movies!"
Pros: "the aircraft was incredible nice and clean. I loved it!"
Cons: "hello, the only thing I did not like was the air conditioner. It was too high and my eyes got very dried and irritated. From that everything was very good. thank you"
Pros: "COmfortable seats and great staff. Food was the most bland that I have experience on Aeromexico but they all can't be home runs."
Cons: "Entertainment system had malfunction and was down for half the flight. Leaving me halfway through a film (pet peeve)."
Pros: "Love the comfort and room of the seats. A plus to have charger station in your seat"
Cons: "Staff not so friendly. Not giving us enough attention"
Pros: "Was all good even saw a couple get in the toilet for the mile high club!"
Cons: "They stole about $3500 dollars from my suitcases. I called Aeromexico, but I can’t get no were. I will also not be using Kayak, until the drop Aeromexico"
Pros: "Good food and good entertainment."
Pros: "Flight had no major inconveniences or mishaps."

Pros: "The cabin attendants were very professional, bilingual and smiled."

Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
Pros: "Overall planes were ontime Staff pleasant. Tv entertainment was certainly adequate"
Cons: "Food was terrible Both trips a bun with mystery meat and cheese And a pudding on the side My last overnight trip my seat didn’t recline making sleeping almost impossible"
Cons: "My flight was changed..."
Pros: "Flight attendant were very nice, great prices,"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like"
Cons: "Delayed hours, both on my flight to Managua and from Managua. Going through customs and having to pick up your luggage and the go back through security is annoying. What do they think has changed since the last security check? The seats are small if you have long legs. The food is not good, but I guess what airline's is?"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, lots of movies and kids shows to choose from on the plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connecting flights, very little communication about delays etc. Terrible turbulence for 3 hours, food was not good at all. Don’t eat breakfast"
Pros: "The service was extraordinary since the first moment I checked in. Crew was super attentive, professional and over standing. The service in airport was fast and efficient and in the plane crew and services totally exceed my perspectives. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The screen at my seat did not work. Nobody told me why or mentioned it to me. While I was sleeping a flight attendant took away my tray of food before I was finishing eating."
Pros: "The arraivile bean early than than a espect at :"
Cons: "Food :;("
Cons: "Stated "free wifi" on plane by the door entrance. But once seated and trying to log in. You have to pay. So it is not "free" In my opinion that sigh is false advertising."
Pros: "Great airplane"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no personal tv screen. And the seats were very uncomfortable. No space felt trapped in the middle seat with no room."
Pros: "Seats had the television screen in the seats instead of the monitors that come down from the ceiling. Everyone could choose what they wanted to watch. Good selection of movies and television shows. Airline stewards were nice."
Cons: "All three of our flights were delayed. It was stressful trying to get to new gates and not sure if we would make our flights or not. No explanation why there was delays. However, this worked out to our advantage or we would have missed our flights."
Cons: "For starters, the air conditioning either wasn't working or was super slow making the flight uncomfortably hot. This is the second flight on this trip where a flight has been delayed and there is just TOO much confusion. You guys don't have enough employees guiding us to the right direction. Which caused me to miss my flight. Making me spend an awful night over night at the airport, missing work, and overall just an INCONVENIENCE. Delayed flights seem to be a common thing with your airline son ADD MORE STAFF! So ridiculous, the staff in Mexico City are useless at helping people out!!! I'm not one to complain but this was so unprofessional!"
Pros: "Help from attendants"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Excellent legroom, no hidden charges, nice friendly service, on time arrival, great price"
Pros: "snack and drink, flight departures and arrivals on time, wheelchair service at departures and arrivals, the crew were helpful and efficient, price for round trip (L. A. - Guadalajara and return) was very reasonable, landing back at L. A. was a bit rough. Overall rate +/- 9.0"
Cons: "the new $25.00 dl charge for luggage, found out about it at airport check-in"
Pros: "It is a good airplane very modern"
Cons: "Delayed. We wait almost three hours in the airplane."
Pros: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "We didn't know the gate number until after boarding time. We boarded very late. Couldn't get comfortable in the seats"
Pros: "The man who eventually offered to change seats with me"
Cons: "The stewardess screaming at me. Their overall lack of understanding that I suffer from a severe fear of flying and amclaustrophobic on planes. Seated me in a middle seat in emergency row, which completely freaked me out and then moved me to a seat with solid metal armrests that my larger body could not fit into, then yelled at me and embarrassed me in front of dozens of passengers until a man offered to change seats with me. Completely unprofessional staff and terrible experience. Not only did I arrive to TJ 5 hrs late, I was traumatized."
Pros: "Loved the movie selections."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Cons: "Business class for 4.5hrs overnight without flat seats!! Zero entertainment!"
Cons: "flight delayed, gate busy when we got there, took train to next terminal and gate, plane was there for another 20 minutes but...door was closed and couldn't board...rebooked to different airport"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane. The entertainment was not working."
Pros: "The crew was great except the steward making announcements was difficult to understand at times. She sounded as if she had laryngitis. I hope she is doing better."
Cons: "Entertainment cold have been provided for the clients"
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane itself seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "Food was better than I expected, but still airplane food"
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Crew was great, boarded quickly."
Cons: "San Antonio has connection from different terminals requires security recheck without any assistance from staff. Nearly half my flight missed it's connections due to slow security."
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours due mechanical issue Missed connecting flight Waited in line for 2 hours for a hotel comp. had to pay 20$ to get to hotel because there was no shuttle Still stuck in Dallas. Never made it to Sam fran. Extremely disappointed I expect compensation"
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Pros: "Food, staff and entertainment was good. However, the touch screen on one of our systems did not work, and had to use the remote control."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms, and the one on our side got dirty fast. Also, give yourself lots of EXTRA time to get through the airport in Madrid. It takes forever to get out to the gate, and you have to go through Security, Immigration and sometimes a second more intense security (which we did). If you need to get your VAT refund on purchases, add at least ONE hour. 30 minutes to get the approval stamp in one line, and 30 minutes in another line to get your refund."
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."
Pros: "boarding and checkin bags"
Cons: "Co-pilot didn’t Board the plane and flight got delayed for 2 hrs. Most probably AA knew that co-pilot didn’t arrive and they still boarded everybody only to be left stranded on tarmac. that’s totally unacceptable. And we all could have waited in the terminal. Hope they fix that problem for future purposes. Similar major delay by 6 hrs with a previous travel and they finally cancelled the flight. It’s just getting worse with AA delays."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. Flight crew arrived late further delaying trip. Connecting flight missed. Promised hotel reservation by American were non-existent when arriving in Dallas. Had to try to sleep in airport. Will never willingly fly American again"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. They kept us well hydrated."
Cons: "I expected more from the in-flight entertainment on a 6 hour flight. If I had known I would have brought my own tablet and watched the free in-flight movies that were offered via free Wi-Fi."
Pros: "Good legroom, nice crew, temperature was comfortable, arrived ahead of schedule even though we sat on the departure tarmac for at least 30 min after we left the gate."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac and no individual screens on one flight."
Pros: "Timely upgrade. Great service."
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "The flight attendant from Pensacola having a good sense of humor."
Pros: "The plane was clean, leaving on time, with fewer passengers there was much room and the service was surprisingly friendly for an American Airlines flight."
Cons: "The crew had a light task with the fewer passengers on board and they made the best of it... not neglecting the passengers, but definitely looking out for themselves and that was a bit obvious by creating small cabins for them to stay in using the curtains near the door exits and encouraging people to move to empty rows to clear the back rows for them to sleep on. Not bad, but just a bit obvious."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Cons: "The aircraft was hot. Barely any A/C. It felt like 78 degrees. Uncomfortably hot."
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "Their service is useless. Processes are in need of a major overhaul. They have become too big for themselves and have not adopted the customer-centric value that prevailing companies have incorporated and are implementing. I predict that they will not be around in the next 10 years if changes are not made."
Cons: "Kayak should be more particular who they partner up with as being more selective will bring more value to your brand."
Cons: "Due to what had happened in Alicante and having to purchase a new ticket for Rosario IBERIA told us they could not issue a boarding pass due to the fact that the flight from Madrid to JFK was on American Airlines. Once we arrived in Madrid it was very nerve wrecking because we had to go to several places in and explain everything and we needed to do a lot of running in order to make it to our flight on time, all this with two small children and people that were so unwilling to help"
Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit messy"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary, which for plane flights is about as good as it gets. No delays, no scares, no extra inconveniences."
Cons: "It's a transatlantic plane flight, not anything I'd describe as a fun experience."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment was appreciated. Flight was smooth and landed early. There was just no offer of food unless for purchase and I was hungry and look forward to that. Even just a bag of pretzels!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Pros: "Nothing except leaving American"
Cons: "Changed to a smaller plane from Chicago to Dublin Paid extra for seats on original and didn't get them Flight late because of catering difficulties"
Pros: "Good seat back entertainment system. Plenty of movies I wanted to watch. Good to have an AC power outlet, too, to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "Charging more for some seats is a crappy business practice. Never enough room. Warmer than I'd like. Guy behind me kept stretching out his legs so much that he'd hit my feet unless I also stretched out."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendly and helpful and the plane was recently remodeled so the seats were nice."
Cons: "In coach you only receive a drink a cookies."
Cons: "They had the wrong flight times which made my connection impossible so they had to book a later flight for my wife and I, Did not get the seats we paid for and initially did not have us even sitting together until we insisted."
Cons: "After we got to the airport we found out our flight would be delayed three hours. Couldn't change us to an earlier flight. Changed gates four times but they did provide a sandwich and drink."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
Pros: "good attention"
Pros: "Staff was accommodating throughout the trip"
Cons: "We were delayed on every leg of the flight - even sitting on the tarmac for 1.5 hours. No nursing rooms available in the airports."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"
Pros: "Very good on time, comfortable."
Pros: "Liked legroom in the emergency row and the quality of the new entertainment system."
Pros: "The flight was average. Small plane, short flight, no food or beverage service. Pretty average and nothing to complain about."
Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Pros: "Staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "The food. Skip the cup of noodles."
Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."

Pros: "the flight crew offered us as many drinks as we'd like which was nice."
Cons: "the seats were quite uncomfortable even though it was a 5 hour flight. there was no food on flight other than for purchase, too expensive."
Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."
Pros: "Flight was quick, service was great, clean lavatories."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."
Pros: "I've always had adequate flights with AC. No one goes over and beyond, but everything is as you would expect. A smooth flight."
Cons: "6 hour flight delay missed a whole day of vacation when we called customer service we were redirected to a adult sex hotline by your staff all we got was a 10 dollar voucher for our trouble never flying air Canada again"
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Pros: "Meals were good and I do like the premium economy seats."
Cons: "One issue that the premium economy seats have is that they recline button is very stiff to push. Then when you have final pushed it in then push back on the seat it falls to the full recline position, potentially surprising the passenger behind. I thought this was isolated to this flight but have now encountered in 2 subsequent flights in AC premium economy."
Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I liked that we got a lot of food, and the movies were very good. Groups for boarding made sense and we boarded quickly"
Cons: "it was late and despite being 4.5 hours there were no free snacks or food. Only one toilet which we could never use bc of constant turbulence."
Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."
Cons: "4 hours delay with no explanation and the least of apologies."
Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"
Pros: "The flight was excellant. Something that horizon air needs to aspire too."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight, unless you are flying first class it's not going to be amazing."
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Pros: "From the views read I cannot say I had the same experience. Crew was helpful & kind. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
Pros: "Air Canada has treated me excellently every time I've flown with them. However, this connection was through United, which, on my flight to LAX, was delayed 3 hours. I should have known how this would go."
Cons: "Since this flight was delayed, I would not make my connecting flight to Tokyo. Flights with Air Canada to Tokyo were all booked that day, and several days afterward. I canceled my flight and am awaiting refund. I booked with another airline. I am severely disappointed with United's behavior. I've flown out of several countries from various airlines, and the US and US-based airlines are the only flight with consistent delays. It's honestly embarrassing. And I suppose, while I'm complaining, I'll add--as someone with a severe peanut allergy, it was important that this flight was with Air Canada, who actually cares about my safety. That I had to miss my flight and book with another, potentially dangerous airline, added to my dissatisfaction."
Pros: "Asian flavored snack mix was way better than stale peanuts. Check in, gate, and attendant staff were A+."
Cons: "International flight over 6hrs, yet food not included on flight?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Service. Rude workers"
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Delayed, emergency landing, 3 hrs late arrival"
Pros: "The Air Canada crew were great."
Pros: "Comfy flight, nice staff and great food!"
Pros: "I was given an awesome seat with leg room. Slept like a baby the whole time!"
Cons: "The seats with leg room are usually given to couples with a baby, but I slept through with earphones on and did not notice a single cry."
Pros: "Connections were easily changed."
Cons: "We waited several hours for a plane to arrive from Calgary. This was our only option. We watched 3 westjet flights come and go, on time which was extremely off putting. Next time we will fly west jet."
Pros: "descent leg room. overall pleasant flight,"
Cons: "overhead light didn't work. entertainment requires ipad rental or own device. I tried using my own laptop, but it requires plugin installation and the video would freeze. purchased food is low quality: tasteless cold chicken wrap"
Pros: "No food in a flight of 5hours ? SEriously? This is the first and last time, I ll choose emirates or etihad next time. for sure Air Canada will be my last choice for a flight of 4-5 hours. We could pay for poor sandwiches but no thanks ticket was already expensive. Crew was nice and flight was on time."
Pros: "Food was great, seat was comfortable, bathrooms much better designed. Overall cleaner and nicer aircraft."
Pros: "On time, good service at the airport and at the plane."
Pros: "Over 2 1/2 hrs late. Missed my connection."
Cons: "The flight was very late so even though we made our connection in Vancouver, our luggage did not. Not a peep of an apology from Air Canada either."
Pros: "The flight itself was pretty good - we had our 9 month old on his first flight and the crew made a point to outline some recommendations for carry position as well as some points for what to do in an emergency that are not outlined in the safety video."
Cons: "From when I checked in, I had booked in premium economy and was looking forward to having a pair of seats for my family. However, my plane was changed, and we ended up from having a pair of premium economy seats, by a window, to being placed in the centre section at the back of the airplane. I would have liked an alert of some sort to my phone that would alert me of the change. Additionally, it would have been good to have some sort of acknowledgement/apology, because of the inconvenience - especially since we pre-booked these seats well in advance, versus doing the selection at check-in."
Pros: "The seat was to tight."
Pros: "Food was horrendous and staff for the most part ok but occasionally surly and unhelpful. not prepared to go the extra mile. Super uncomfortable chairs barely recline."
Pros: "No muss no fuss. Flight left 5 minutes early"
Pros: "It was only 1 hour."
Cons: "It was only 1 hour."
Pros: "courteous crew; partially empty flight so lots of space to move and lay out Food and entertainment good Air Canada is always a great airline to fly"
Cons: "Delay in SF departure attributed to "weather" resulted in missed connection and a 5 hour wait in Vancouver. Transfer from international flights to Canadian at YVR is quite cumbersome and involves much walking."
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating, wishing more crews were as great and friendly."
Cons: "Non business class passengers were constantly using the business class bathroom, curtains were not drawn."
Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "So incredibly cramped and no seat screens to watch movies. Bumpy that that’s no ones fault."
Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"
Pros: "They held the plane in order for me to catch it after my late flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The crew member promised my $60 in checked bags would still follow me, but when I arrived In Vancouver I was Informed they were still in Chicago. My seat did not recline and my reading lamp was broken after paying $80 for the upgraded seat. The flight attendant was a bit grouchy about it. The WiFi was very sporadic and didn’t work for the majority of the trip.. which I wasted 900 miles on. Not impressed this time around."
Pros: "The bar is pretty low with United. Even being a 1K member, I am usually just hoping the flight arrives on time. This time it didn't. The crew was polite, which isn't always the case."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."
Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"
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: "Offered drinks and snacks."
Cons: "My suitcase's handle was damaged by the time it reached baggage claim. I will need to buy a new suitcase now."
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."
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
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: "Tv, food, outlet to charge phone."
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly and seats were small and uncomfortable for a 4.5h flight."
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: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"
Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."
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: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."
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: "Informative Captain. Made up time in transit."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not exist and a fee was charged to access content online. This does not meet industry standards. During boarding, airline agent told me my one allowable carry-on item had to be checked because of limited space in overhead bins. Upon boarding the plane, there was clearly room for more luggage to be stored overhead. One flight crew member served complimentary beverages by serving the entire can. The other served by pouring only some of the can into a cup. Again, this does not meet industry standards, from the perspective of a reasonably well-traveled flier."
Pros: "I gave it a four because the airline put safety first. Though we had to change plane due to some funny sound made by the engine, the wait was worth it. The crew were helpful and the actual flight was smooth."
Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."
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."
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."
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."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding on and off the plane was very easy"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortably. We had a nearly 6 hour flight with no tvs which wasn't great either."
Cons: "Hasnt even left yet. 3 hours late"
Pros: "On time. The crew was good."
Cons: "Could not pick seats online. Party of 3 seated in 3 different rows"
Cons: "Online check in was ambiguous and I wasnt sure if I as checked in or not. The gate did not have scanners for the boarding passes on the united mobile app."
Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."
