Pros: "It wasnt bad"
Cons: "I didnt like that you changed my flight last minute (20 hours before flying) from WestJet to Delta. And you changed it from a flight to Toronto to a flight to Seattle. Which made it an International flight, causing me to have to be at YVR airport earlier.."

Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "The fact that planes still aren’t loaded back to front slows down any chance of efficiency. You’re slowing your own business down by not using common sense. Lots of turbulence on both flights."
Pros: "West jet people are always so nice. The service is great. Our plane had no TVs which was a bit disappointing and my cup of coffee and pretzels were underwhelming, but then the price is good."
Cons: "There is little to not like. Would I like a bit more leg room? Yes!"
Cons: "The complimentary in flight movie would not run on my android device. It ran for 5 minutes then froze."
Pros: "The stewards were great however no TV anymore and meals because of cost cutting was where we thought it was lacking."
Cons: "Refer to above :"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but it was due to weather, so it is really out of westjets hands."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "Leg space, prompt on-board service"
Cons: "Boarding delays"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing about this extremely delayed flight"
Cons: "I was stuck at Pearson International for 5 hours before I was able to get on a different, direct West Jet flight which also ended up being severely delayed."
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "The staff are always super friendly on Westjet."
Cons: "The entertainment system is terrible. It does not work on my laptop and they sell out of ipads quickly."

Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."
Cons: "Arriving at Orlando, Real confusing and I'm not really old yet. Good thing we had people to meet us, I had no idea where to go."
Cons: "plane just stood and everyone just sat on the plane for a solid hour an a half. I almost missed my connecting flight with another airline."

Pros: "food, flight crew, leg room"
Cons: "crying babies"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Pros: "the connection time in Calgary was short, so overall the trip was verily quick. Generally, the flight was good, clean plane, good services."
Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Pros: "I enjoyed the extra space in the exit row."
Cons: "The flight attendants were nice but very nit-picky. The lady next to me had her jacket sitting on her lap. She was told to either put it in the overhead bin or stuff it underneath the seat until after takeoff which seemed absolutely ridiculous to me. I had a backpack under the seat in front of me and was told to push it even further under the seat which also seemed ridiculous. People are tired and not excited to be squished inside a flying tube like sardines, there is no need to pick at them for such tiny insignificant things. As usual, the general public has a poor understanding of common courtesy and basic manners but that's nothing new."
Cons: "To be honest, our stuartess was very abrasive. To everyone."
Cons: "Havent left Prince George yet still sitting on ground"
Pros: "Most things"
Cons: "Old 737-700, AC didn't work, no Westjet connect just the small screens that don't work very well and seats were very cramped. Sat on Tarmac for 45 min in 95 degree heat and AC was not working"
Pros: "Liked most but don't understand why a family of 3 was separated. Bought tickets together."
Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
Pros: "Boarding was handled efficiently."
Cons: "There wasn't much of a welcome aboard. Definitely not the WestJet of earlier years."
Pros: "It was a little bit delayed but after the airplane arrived everything was very fast."
Cons: "I don't have any problem about the west jet, I know that some delays is complete normal because the weather or air traffic."
