Toronto airport. WestJet is late again. Boarding too slow.Entertainment on the plane did not work. It is about time westjet to change something.
Well the flight and the crew were great, however a poor grade for making us stand and wait for luggage, then find out that my luggage was not on the plane, OMG! then the customs kicks you out of the baggage secure area and you have to fend for yourself to get information because WestJet does not have a Customer service help are to assist you, have to go wait in line at the check in area, then you can get some help, after waisting over an hour found out that bag was indeed not on plane and that we would be notified as to when/how we would be able to get bag. Need better customer relations, sure hope they will deliver bag to my house today??
Awful customer support. Never again
The seating was very uncomfortable the plane was overheated
The primary reason I am not happy is because we purchased seats for our original flight. When the flight was changed over the phone we were assigned seats with no leg room and no window. Typical WestJet. They no longer care about their customers.
Would’ve liked charging ports at the seats
Boarding in Toronto is an example of good boarding. On the other hand one flight attendant on the flight WS 652 wasn’t in good mood and she didn’t even try to hide it. Overall good trip.
On time. Flight was delayed. I think was poor planning on behalf of west jet. Flight crew had to go from one plane to next walking across the airport. They should have planned their timing better.
Took a 60 min flight to have no crew assist us to the gate and wait on the plane for over an hour!
Cons: "Flight delayed 1hr"
Cons: "I find the planes are far to compact and its really hard if you have a long flight. The body becomes stiff and really sore from not being able to move about much."
Pros: "Emergency exit seat row had so much room!"
Cons: "Chairs are not comfy and no entertainment"
Cons: "Itinerary changes including a late minue "cancelled flight" with one with "new" number and onl;y 6 minutes difference...very confusing. Overall electronic management system needs work"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The thermal control in the waiting area of the pearson airport before boarding was uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was late for over an hour."

Cons: "Nothing, I just hate flying"
Pros: "On time departure. Organized check in"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not provided. No in-seat entertainment. Late take-off on every single leg of my trip"
Pros: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute I had to buy another flight with Air Canada that cost me double the price and i was stuck at the airport all day !!!! The Air Canada flight was at 6.30pm ,and the West Jet was suppose to leave at 11.30am"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "It was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 hours and i received a 15 dollar voucher as compensation. Westjet can pound sand."
Pros: "westjet is the only way to go."
Cons: "We didnt have enough time to make the connection between the fly . We ran for all aeropuert and almost loss the fly to Lax"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great"
Cons: "No power chargers on the planes"
Pros: "Flying with west jet is always a great experience. The crew always make you feel welcome."
Cons: "They didn’t offer coffee on this particular flight."
Pros: "The room between the seats"

Pros: "Very spacious. Not an overfull flight Seems like they offer a lot"
Pros: "Yes we got home on time ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The flight was good but it was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The hour delay was an incomvience."
Pros: "Short, but sweet flight"
Pros: "The flight got me home safely"
Cons: "We boarded the flight on time, but for a delay for 45 minutes, we were asked to deplane. After deplaning, we were not notified of a new departure time since no one knew. There was no snowstorm, or extreme weather patients. At Toronto, it was somewhat gusty. I did not understand what the delay was for."
Cons: "We were delayed 45 minutes without reason, we asked to have our flights switched as we were nervous of missing our connecting flight and were told we could not switch. While we were waiting on the runway for over an hour I asked our flight attendant to check on the status of our connecting flight and she basically told us to hope for the best and that we would have to deal with it when we arrived in Toronto"
Cons: "The reasons that I book with Westjet are that the attendants joke with each other, appear to really enjoy their jobs, and provide over the top customer service. On this flight no one was jovial or smiling, the garbage sat on our trays for the majority of the flight. The attendants spoke to each other more than the passengers. Very disappointing!"
Pros: "I travelled alone with a baby and all the staff at Westjet wete so helpful"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Complimentary wine was a welcome surprise"
Cons: "West Jet connectivity would not work for my phone or ipad. There weren't able to fix the service."

Cons: "No tv screen"
Pros: "Aisle seat and the crew was great!"
Pros: "Super fast boarding and check in! Arrived early"
Cons: "The q400 is a terrible aircraft."
Cons: "It took an hour and a half for the flight attendant to reach the fifth row to offer refreshment an then announced they had run out of red wine. Apparently she failed to check the stock before departure."
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: "Complimentary wine - friendly staff"
Cons: "Late departure- disorganized boarding"
Cons: "the seats are a bit confining."
Cons: "It was crowded on the flight, fully booked"
Pros: "It was on time and short"
Air Canada lost both of my pieces of luggage including all my medication which required me to return home early. Spent one whole day in an airport trying to see if they could locate it, only to be told a firearm I had packed and had gained a Non Resident firearms permit at my point of entry had been seized. Canadian Customs and Border confirmed it had not been seized and this was strictly the fault of the airline. Complete nightmare, will never fly on Air Canada again.
Entertainment system didn’t work.
Flight canceled literally last minute without any notice in advance
Everything was great other than the delay in leaving Saskatoon
professional , efficient & liked French spoken on flight in addition to English
Cons: "Nothing significant"
Pros: "Quick boarding and takeoff"
Cons: "The sound connections for the in flight entertainment was faulty. Bring your own device would be better. Seats were uncomfortable, they need replacing."
Cons: "Took an hour to de-ice. The snow was forecasted. I understand it's the airport operations, not airline, but there should be a better way."
Cons: "flight cancelled. had to go down to ticketing. rebooked given a $10 food voucher and told we would get a hotel room when we got to Toronto since we were getting in real late because of the delay"
Pros: "Movie, but not a bit of food that we didn't have to pay for except for a tiny bag of pretzels."
Cons: "Not v99j.j on direct flight from Calgary to Toronto on our way home ad we were on our way out."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Pros: "Very happy with my trip"
Cons: "My lineup in USA entry line was ridiculous and I missed my boarding time because it was as hard to get the air Canada attendants attention so I ended up waiting 40 minutes anxious about missing my plane. Their kiosks weren’t working proper hence the longer line."
Pros: "The movies and entertainment offered in the screen were alright."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour because flight got in late from Halifax, I get it, stuff happens. Then once boarded we sat there for another 45 minutes. The pilot comes on over the speaker and explains we aren't leaving because the crew didn't have the proper paper work in the cabin..."
Cons: "7:05am Flight got cancelled and they saw fit to rebook us on a 20:30pm flight.. decided to reroute us to anotjer city in canada and down to a different airport in DC Lost my luggage from time i checked it it at 0500am yo time dflight was cancelled and rebooked at 0700. And to fike claim and travrl without jt. Worst experience ever."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Pros: "The flight crew, the price and the bags arrived."
Cons: "While the flight crew was great, the rest of the employees on the Toronto side were awful. Our plane was delayed from Dublin so most of the plane missed their connecting flight. Once off the plane they only had 2 people working rebooking and 2 working bag issues even though there was plenty employees around. After an incredibly long line, the gate agent was very rude. He barely acknowledged me, wouldn't look at me and just shoved my new ticket at me and said next. I tried to talk to another while waiting an extra 4hrs for my next flight and all she did was shove a business card with numbers and said if I had a problem to call one of those numbers and then rolled her eyes and started talking to her friends again. I saw another couple from my flight being passed around and getting rude treatment as well. Another I talked to said they will never fly Air Canada again. I know it wasn't their fault our flight was late but a little compassion and good customer service goes a long way. I had to spend $15 on dinner that I wouldn't if I had made my flight but they gave another couple from my flight $10 vouchers for food. So inconsistent! I also paid $100 extra on my ticket to sit closer to the front of the plane since I knew I had a short layover (which didn't make a difference) but they just gave the same seat to the girl next to me for the same reason. When I asked for a refund on the seat cost they just blew me off. To sum it up, the flight crew was great and very friendly but all the ground employees were awful and really need to improve on their customer service skills."
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow and it made eating the meal a little difficult."
Cons: "Even as a member and my status within the Aeroplan program (which I am allowed to have up to 3 bags checked free of charge) I was charged."
Pros: "They afford a civil and enhanced trip on an Express flight. Something AA and other airlines consistently fail to do."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, considering there were just over two hundred passengers to manage. The crew was excellent: responsive, courteous and proactive. Entertainment: Overall plenty of options though some were dated. Food: surprisingly good, and COMPLIMENTARY. Didn't have to pay extra."
Cons: "Coach is CRAMPED. And on a 14-hour flight, that's important.."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Pros: "The plane was clean and fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for no apparent reason. We were not told of this delay until 45 minutes after boarding time was supposed to begin. Good communication would have helped with this issue."
Pros: "Good flight once we got on board."
Cons: "Plane was about an hour late taking off, seems the maintenance guy lives 45 minutes from the airport and we all had to wait on him to get there to look at a paint chip on the nose, which took about a minute. They might want to have someone on hand."
Cons: "There was only one snack option and I couldn't eat it because it contained gluten."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Announcement was made at the last minute. There wasn't enough space for carry-on luggage, mostly because the flight crew let people hog space leaving less for everybody else."
Pros: "Easy flight to DC."
Cons: "First time at Pearson Airport needed some help finding my way around the airport"
Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."
Pros: "Transatlantic flight with charge for a beer? No free entertainment, not even audio? $10 for iPad rentals? Macaroni & Cheese as main dish?"
Pros: "Seats are confortable, meals good and the crew are very nice"
Cons: "There was no complimentary checked luggage. Not impressed because usually this is only done by the cheap budget airlines not a national airline."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Pros: "Once I actually got on the rebooked flight, everything went great."
Cons: "I get it, weather happens, but airlines should have figured out by now how to make any issues that come from that as painless as possible. Air Canada did not have it together. There was little communication and coordination. People had to wait multiple times in ungodly long lines while agents spent way too much time with each customer. There was misinformation and lack of information given by agents and at times no one to help at all. When there's weather it should be all hands on deck until the effected customers get to where they need to be. Otherwise it's an aggravating and nearly intolerable experience. Commercial airlines have been around for 60+ years - figure it out already."
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to washington"
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for more than 3 hours and there was not even a drink offered for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great with children."
Cons: "Multiple confusing security processes at airport. Huge lines. Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Pros: "Very good individual entertainer system in seat backs of new boeing dream liner."
Cons: "Called in advance re special veg meal but they didn't have it at mealtime."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."
Pros: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient. The entertainment consoles were nice, having games and movies and flight tracking."
Cons: "Not notified about long flight delay until 5 mins before scheduled boarding. Happened once with my flight and twice with my daughter's."

Pros: "The checked baggage came through all the way from CTS-HND-YYZ-DCA. It was great I didn't have to pick them up even once. Thanks."

Cons: "Seats are torture"
Cons: "There should have been food for purchase."
Cons: "Able to choose own seats"

Cons: "Old plane overall"

Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Food selection is not very good.."
Pros: "Good equipment. Pilots communicative."
Cons: "First class food choices were both heavy ( meat ravioli or braised beef tips). I had a nice grilled chicken wrap from Coach. Flight attendants were pleasant and professional but not very attentive."
Cons: "THere was no entertainment"
Pros: "We flew for only 45 minutes on a flight that had been scheduled for 1.3 hours."
Cons: "The long delay seemed strange, as the plane had arrived from Costa Rica. Why would an airline schedule the same plane for an international flight and then a short hop from Newark to DC without adequate time in between? The departure gate at Newark was absolute chaos! Announcements were overlapping and not understandable. There was inadequate seating."
Cons: "The crew were harsh and abrupt. The seats were uncomfortable and tilted too far toward to be able to sit in the upright position. The "reclined" position was a more reasonable upright position."
Pros: "Super nice crew and kept us informed of the unfortunate delays."
Cons: "Delay leaving. Relatively hot flight. Also see previous comment for the flight the day before."
Pros: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"
Cons: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"

Cons: "Bag didn't arrive on my flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time."

Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
Pros: "No food or drink was served on the 35 min flight. Staff was friendly. Bag check at the walkway was very slow, but it is what it is."
Cons: "This was horrible. There was a delay and there was no announcement in the terminal. If I had not been checking my email I would have had no idea. I kept getting emails from UA with different times and they were all wrong."
Pros: "It was a quick flight. The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "Never got there canceled for weather."
Cons: "Crew did not communicate well with ground crew on maintenance issue, causing us to sit on plane for 2:20 hours."

Pros: "I slept"
Cons: "Provide real food. Board back to front, window to aisle"
Pros: "The plane is new and it was spacious and comfortable."

Cons: "The other customers were the only probably. The flight attendants need to be able to control the passengers more."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "We arrived with 10 minutes to make our next flight at ORD. The flight crew could have requested that folks who did NOT have tight connections wait a few minutes so the rest of us could get off the plane efficiently. This did not happen. Folks who lived in Chicago just took their sweet time gathering their stuff while we waited."
Pros: "Able to sleep the whole way"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "It's was a very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Long waiting time to get luggafe"
Cons: "After three on-time flights from the other side of the world, I was stuck in Chicago for a 3 hour delay. The flight finally arrived at Reagan 2 minutes after the runway closed so we were rerouted to a different airport where we finally landed 4 hours late."
