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!
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit chaotic"
Pros: "The head stewardess could not do enough."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1hr"
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
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"
Cons: "My other WestJet flights let me have access to wifi via the WestJet app and the entertainment console. I was disappointed to not have access on this flight."
Pros: "Cramped seats for someone 6 foot 5."
Cons: "Nothing, I just hate flying"
Pros: "Nope. Just got me to where I was going..."
Cons: "Complimentary food, service (smile a little guys!), comfort."
Cons: "I asked to pay for a better seat prior to my flight from Kelowna to Edmonton and was told there wasn’t any. When we boarded the flight attendant moved a couple 10+ rows up for no charge."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 hours and i received a 15 dollar voucher as compensation. Westjet can pound sand."
Pros: "West Jet was well organized and very professional in helping travellers on a full aircraft reach Hobolulu. I was particularly impressed by the polite calm and efficient cabin staff. Will use this airline again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great"
Cons: "No power chargers on the planes"
Pros: "The crew were so kind and friendly. Kept the spirit upbeat and served us well. The bulkhead was roomy enough for carry on bags, so they weren’t taken away from us to be checked, which happened to us on the same flight last year with another Canadian airline."
Cons: "I do miss personal screens in seats, although I understand it’s not really necessary anymore. If there were a ledge or place in seats to accommodate personal devices for better viewing, that would b amazing. No more neck cricks."
Pros: "The overall experience was great"
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
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: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Flight crew very attentive."
Cons: "Condition of bathroom at front."
Pros: "Easy check in and nice crew!!!! No complaints at all!!! I would fly them again!!! I would definitely recommend them to others!"
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly, super helpful. Wasn't as jam packed as most flights so it was nice to have some extra leg room."
Cons: "No in flight movie or distraction of some sort but was still a very calm quiet flight which is just as good."
Pros: "The flight was good but it was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The hour delay was an incomvience."
Pros: "All good,a little delay in my transfer as a result of original plane engine problem ,however they rectified that in a reasonable time frame. I will fly with you again no problem."
Pros: "Short, but sweet flight"
Pros: "... He was calm, comfortable, and extremely witty.... with a great sense of humour regarding Toronto’s weather in comparison to Curaçao’s. Going home after an awesome vacation always sucks but with WestJet and it’s fabulous crew on board, the transition back to reality really isn’t so bad."
Cons: "The plane was old... no tv screens to see the flight stats like altitude and location. I had a window seat and bought a couple of Ceasar’s so it all worked out just fine.... at the end of the day"
Pros: "Very disciplined and hard-working crew did their best to keep everything under control and moving on schedule. Boarding was busy but fairly well organized considering."
Cons: "Flight had an abundance of minors and babies at no fault of anyone, just unfortunate. Lots of crying, screaming, fidgeting and puking. Customers were pretty impatient in the early morning as well which didn't help the situation. Not sure if snacks or refreshments (other than water) we're handed out in a 4.5 hour flight as well."
Pros: "The staff are super friendly. The prices are good and the travel times and locations are convenient and what we were looking for."
Cons: "Checking in was a bit of a pain - there was a WJ staffer helping us with the self serve kiosk. She obviously didn't know how to use it, and just hit the continue button and kept asking us to fill in the personal information on the screens. It was funny to laugh at afterwards but not at the time."
Cons: "But who knew, that I was going to go to Toronto! I now understand your schemes. You gave a cheap deal, but did not tell me why. Never again Kayak."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
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!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. We missed our connecting flight so we are in a hotel in Toronto now at 1:30 am. And our flight out is at 5:50 am and we will need to get up by 4 to get to the airport by 4:50. Getting our hotel and food vouchers was long and painful and disorganized. Would not fly with them again"
Pros: "Order ahead food was easy and selection was tasty"
Cons: "Bring a book! Apps to have your entertainment on individual devices is a bad idea."
Cons: "West Jet connectivity would not work for my phone or ipad. There weren't able to fix the service."
Pros: "Carousel number although we only had carry-on"
Cons: "Sat be side large man. Took up too much space."
Pros: "Aisle seat and the crew was great!"
Pros: "Everything was streamlined and easy to understand. We made it on time and the staff were friendly, especially with our young son who is one Ana half."
Cons: "You have to pay for a meal even though it’s a 5 hour flight."
Cons: "the seats are a bit confining."
Cons: "It was crowded on the flight, fully booked"
Pros: "It was on time and short"
Pros: "The person giving the announcements was HILARIOUS. Made listening to the usual safety info much more fun."
Cons: "The French on the flight was a little wonky in that it kind of came in in chunks instead of one flowy message like it did in english"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Just felt to hot and uncomfortable. The seating is to cramped"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Pros: "westjet connect to watch a tv show or the news or something"
Pros: "Humor of the flight attendants #Joeneedsaraise"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lady at check in, Helen, at Pearson was TERRIBLE. No compassion for us travelling with a 2 month old baby, and then booked our seats with united in separate locations with no bassinet. I will never use air Canada Again."
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: "Plane delayed for 1 hour...lots of kids, very crowd"
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: "The empty seat beside me"
Cons: "Poor connections for movies and wifi- broken"
Cons: "Movie options were extremely limited"
Pros: "Amazing staff, service, comfort, food, entertainment! Already looking forward to our flight home - the cabin crew was hilarious and so great to have onboard. Love it!"
Cons: "Only thing I can complain about is that we sat on the ground for over an hour and left 1.5 hours late. We had a layover before our connecting flight so it wasn’t a problem for us."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket I thought it was air Canada but it was air Canada rouge so no food no entertainment tried to download air Canada app but took about an hour to get 10 percent done so flew with no entertainment no drinks no food nothing. Boarding was a pain had a three year old also had to pay extra 50 dollars for my baggage. Typical air Canada nonsense. Would not use them again."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours on New Years Eve and in return, we were given $10 food vouchers... only problem was most things were closed in the airport because it was New Years, and what was open the $10 barely covered it. In flight entertainment wasn’t working properly and frequently cut out. Eventually gave up."
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."
Pros: "Loved how the ride was dead so I was able to get a whole row to myself and stretch out. Food was excellent! Flight attendants were very nice!"
Pros: "Affordable and timely."
Cons: "Hard seats, no room for carry-on luggage, and not even a free cracker."
Cons: "Checked carry on from Montreal to RDU. Bag was never entered in the system (customer service at Toronto stop could not find record for the claim tag we were given), which caused a problem with customs. Bag did arrive with rest of luggage at destination, however."
Pros: "2 of the 3 flight attendants were pleasant. The third, male, I didn't find very helpful, especially when storing my carry on in the overhead compartment."
Cons: "The male flight attendant's customer service skills could use some work. When I booked this flight on Kayak, one price was listed but when paying there was an additional cost for the seat and I wasn't given the option of paying for a less expensive seat."
Cons: "Getting charged Air Canada rates for Air Canada Rouge comforts. 9 plus hours with zero entertainment. Basically stealing money. If this is the service offered should be at cheapo airlines price."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."
Cons: "Party of 7, all split up in different seats. Aircanada was completely useless to help us out Big discussion on the plane with other passengers. Flight was delayed, lost our connection. 10 hours at toronto airport."
Pros: "My good friend John came to pick me up even though it arrived at 1 am instead of 9 pm....."
Cons: "The wait for plane to be ready. There was a technical problem which delayed it. They gave us a discount coupon and I don't even know what kind of discount we will get. They should have just given us a free one way for a similar route."
Pros: "Flignt from Honolulu to Vancouver delayed. Return flight also delayed."
Cons: "Flight cancelled until the next day and then delayed again without sufficient notice . Air canada hasn't offered us anything worth making up missing a day out of our vacation"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "I was very impressed today when one of the airline stewardess went back into the Terminal waiting area to get a passenger's phone charge she left behind. We were all seated when the passenger noticed she had forgotten it and to her credit she walked back to the front of the plane to ask about retrieving the charge. She was particularly concerned because she had just bought it. She came back to her seat and was told they would see what they could do. To our surprise after the doors were closed, the stewardess came back to hand the passenger her charger. She was very grateful! Well done Air Canada."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the electric/USB outlets made all the difference! By the end of the flight, my phone was charged and I was ready to see Montreal!"
Cons: "Paying for seats."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I avoid rouge at all costs and recommend others to avoid it too. I hate the lack of screens and zero complimentary food. A pretzel would impress me but I relate air canada rouge to delta or united and always have weak experiences compared to other aircrafts."
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to mechanical issues. Can't be helped, but made for a long day."
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: "Flight attendants friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable - no legroom. Flight comong home delayed several hours because of maintenance problem."
Cons: "My bag did not make it. After dealing with this airline I was not surprised. They told me to call back in 3 days."
Cons: "One attendant walked by offering water - nice that they offered water in the middle of the flight. But she didn't even give customers the chance to raise their hands bec she walked by so fast saying "water, water, water." I wasn't even dozing off and I couldn't catch her and I was sitting by the aisle. Dirty bathrooms with doors that don't lock - not just one particular stall but more than one stall."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the number of in-flight entertainment options."
Cons: "There was an upset child that could not be calmed down."
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: "They need a better system for boarding. It took forever to get us all on board. And it was hard to hear which zone they were boarding since the passengers were so noisy. there should've been lanes for the different zones so they could usher us all in orderly. It was a chaotic mess without lanes. There was no entertainment if you didn't download their app onto your electronic device. No snacks were offered either. I didn't pay for a meal but it would've been nice to have some pretzels or something like that. The controls for the lights, and attendant call button were on the hand rest. It was very uncomfortable since it was a raised section, and more than once I turned on the light without meaning to do so. I won't fly Air Canada Rouge ever again, if I can help it."
Cons: "Worse pizza ever! A 5 hour flight with not even a free snack. Shame on Air Canada. You should fly KLM or Air France to learn what food should be like on an airline, and customer service. Within Europe or overseas, no charge for great food, free alcohol and smiling staff."
Pros: "This was a horrible experience throughout. From the start, we were told to board but left standing on the jetway for 15-20 minutes before we were allowed to board the plane and take our seats. Went downhill from there."
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No space, "Entertainment" had one use their own device but no place to power the device. Audacity to charge $10 to use a rental device for entertainment when other airlines provide free of charge. No air-circulation on board. Screaming children the ENTIRE 6 hour flight. No complimentary snacks."
Pros: "Great pilot(s). Took off in storm and had probably the best landing..."
Cons: "Delayed 55 mins, delayed 5 more mins, delayed 20 more minutes by the time we boarded zone 5 they weren't even checking passports. Just scanning boarding passes and letting everyone on. I found most issues with the Orlando airport itself."
Pros: "Price was good and flights arrived timely"
Cons: "It's a typical new aircraft that is crowded when full"
Pros: "That there were no delays."
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."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. Everything was great but they stood out to me and my experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and nothing to drink was provided."
Cons: "Because they had horrible service"
Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. The leg room seemed smaller than usual. The crew wasn't very friendly."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!"
Cons: "You need to tell people what to expect on Air Canada Rogue - NEVER AGAIN!!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, staff were organized and efficient, luggage came out fast"
