Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Cons: "The boarding process was unorganized. Once your ready to board you should call out seat numbers starting from the back of the plane to the front and if someone tries to board before their seat has been called they should have to wait.

Pros: "Easy booking, great flight, good choices of airlines, keep up your good work Many thank"

I don’t think I will travel WestJet ever again."
Cons: "Everyrhing was great"
Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."
Cons: "3 hours early for international flight, which was then delayed 3 hours. Then another hour at LaGuardia waiting for 2 $40 taxis to take 5 of us downtown. Ugh. WestJet terminal crew were flustered and uninformed. Terminal 3 at Pearson had inadequate seating. Sitting on the floor for hours isn't appreciated."
Pros: "Everything was on time considering the heavy Holidays travels."

Pros: "It was good. They did their job adequately."
Cons: "Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"

Pros: "Business class is very good"
Pros: "Great entertainment system."
Cons: "Over an hour late."

Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "Did not get to sit with family"
Cons: "No AC or USB charging ports, no individual entertainment screens."
Cons: "Practically no food was served."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The overhead bin space of this airplane was too small. My suitcase, which fits on every other type of plane, could not fit on this one. I had to check it and then go grab it at baggage claim, therefore having to go through security again. This was not the most convient for a tight connection."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "given that Air Canada's computer had crashed and flights were cancelled (including our own), the lack of information was astounding. Why, e.g., didn't anyone go along the queue handing out numbers so people could get food then reclaim their place in line? Why weren't we told, ditto, how long this mess would take to clear up? why weren't we offered o/n stays, etc, etc. Could have done an awful lot better if some manager had spent two minutes thinking!!"
Cons: "Again we boarded and because LGA was going to be full, we had to sit in the plane in Toronto for an hour. If you just let us stay in the terminal at least we can be more comfortable. Why is this allowed? It’s unacceptable"
Cons: "The airline crew keep on pushing back the departure due to bad weather. No discipline while boarding passengers. Delay after landing to open the door. No clear instructions about the delays"
Cons: "Not impressed with luggage fees that were not indicate but hidden in price - and all the nickle and diming on every little thing.. ruins the overall experience"
Cons: "Our luggage didn't scan in the system so we couldn't go to the gate until it was found & scanned in the system. Fortunately we were early so this wasn't an issue but kept us waiting at "step 2" until an actual photo could be found. We also had a delay after boarding while they changed a tire. It all worked out ok."
Pros: "Excellent accommodation/service"
Cons: "sitting in the middle seat unless you pay extra"
Pros: "Had to rebook and was oven wrong information when I caked . Ended up paying for a new ticket"
Cons: "Delayed as always"
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "Plane was old"
Cons: "Why have automated checkin and then still have to wait in massively long line to drop off your luggage. Do it like Jet Blue or Virgin or any of the other airlines.......you show up, auto check in, bag tags, separate line for smart efficient people to drop off their bags and get on with it. Its just so inefficient and puts a complete damper on the trip......maybe curbside checkin also."
Pros: "I brace myself every time I fly Air Canada. Things often go wrong or are frustrating in some way. So I prepare myself mentally. Although there was a takeoff delay and the boarding procedure was confusing, this flight went fairly smoothly, compared to other fiascos I have had with Air Canada."
Cons: "Air Canada has an opportunity to be excellent and they keep hanging on to mediocrity. I think it is either a corporate culture that does not see things from the customer perspective, or a morale problem that shows up as ground staff who do not want to be there. Also, Terminal 1 is a hassle. You check in at the kiosk, only to have to line up for 30 min. to drop your bag off. If I could, I would only fly WestJet."
Cons: "Lack of refreshment choice."
Cons: "Never again"
Pros: "that we landed safe"
Cons: "that the plane was delayed snd we were keept in side like sardines"
Cons: "Fact that when my flt was delayed it was too late notice and then when it got cancelled no communication. Poor customer service. ."
Pros: "Seats Comfortable. Drink service was effiicient."
Cons: "An hour to get a gate upon landing. Unacceptable. Crew did not push passengers to get luggage stowed. They did not seem very concerned about boarding efficiently. Cup size on drinks is stingy."
Pros: "I've flown air Canada probably 6 times. I've been delays 3 times"
Pros: "Hour and a half late. Uneventful other than that."
Pros: "Would have liked something other than pretzels."
Pros: "It was on time and very smouth"
Cons: "- Delayed from take off for over two hours. During this time, pilot and flight attendants shared minimal information with passengers. - At one point, I asked a flight attendant for water because I had a migraine and wanted to take some Advil. He told me he couldn't right now because the pilot wanted everyone in their seats, but he would get it for me as soon as possible. When I followed up 45 minutes later, the same flight attendant apologized and said that it was because he didn't want everyone asking for waters. We were stuck on that plane for over two hours, and you can't get people water? - Gate check was not available, meaning that I had to check my carry-on when there was no more space available (my bag met the carry-on size requirements)."
Pros: "The flight was relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Air Canada has a policy where they will automatically put you on stand by if you do not check in an hour before your flight time. This policy was not stated in any of the emails we received. We were put on stand by and then removed from a flight we had paid for and checked in to."
Pros: "One of the wort scariest flights ever"
Cons: "Delayed because of mechanical issue"
Pros: "Nice interior. Free movies."
Cons: "Air Canada is always delayed."
Pros: "I liked that the boarding process was quick and easy. There were no hiccups."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat space, boarding process every second barding pass is shown"
Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"
Cons: "FLIGHT DELAY FOR TOO LONG. DHANRAJ"
Pros: "Traveling back to the US have Global Emtey or Nexus Like the free movies watched half of movie on the way to acanandr and half on the way back. Thank you"
Cons: "Last time I traveled to Canada I probably used a passport. BUT I never knew that I needed it I thought u could travel with my drivers lisence. Remind travelers to take their passport"
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Initial plane had mechanical problem before we boarded, so we were delayed and sent to a different gate. Delays became incrementally longer, announcements were not as quick as they should have been -- e.g. I learned of the gate change from another passenger rather than the crew at the gate. Then, the flight we did catch was delayed in the air due to congestion at LaGuardia. AC was too cold for me. Admittedly some of these problems were well outside Air Canada's control, but the communication weaknesses were their fault."
Pros: "On time and short! Everything was good"
Cons: "flight cancellation without overnight accomodation"
Cons: "That we were 50 mins late taking off and it wasn't weather related."
Pros: "They took off and landed on time"
Pros: "Clear communication"
Cons: "45 minute delay"
Cons: "We lost our connection by 20min because of waiting at customs were placed on the next available flight, bourded and them waited for over an hour inside the plane for a couple of customers that where stuck at customs."
Pros: "There seems to be more space at my seat in this plan and I received my luggage at the front of the line in LGA"
Cons: "LGA airport is a mess, they closed garage B at your terminal and I have to walk at least 1/2 mile to pick up me car."
Cons: "3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Very poor communication and co-ordination when flight was delayed and then cancelled. Rebooking was only available via the phone, even when at the airport, with a 45 minute hold time. Everyone kept passing the buck to another, and no supervisors were around. Terrible customer service!"
Pros: "No problem"
Cons: "No problem"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, boarding could have been delayed to avoid sitting on the tarmac for such a long period of time in the plane. That is EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE for travellers. If Air Canada knows the departure will be delayed, boarding of the aircraft should be delayed"
Cons: "They could have rushed more to get us off the ground quicker."
