Pros: "Airport services were excellent. Wait at check in and security were very little, just a few minutes. We had an awesome experience on both Calgary and Montreal sides"
Cons: "I had safety concerns on the flight from YVR to Toronto because seated in the exit row were two individuals who were brought to the gate assisted on a cart and had to wait for assistance to get on and off the flight. They had very poor ambulation which made me nervous as these people have agreed, by sitting in the exit row, that they are able and willing to help in the case of an emergency evacuation. This was not a safe situation and was noted by several passengers."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited to what was being broadcast on regular cable channels. No movies or on demand content were available. Assigned seats were different than what was reserved during booking."
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"

Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Cons: "I had to pay for earphones. Even if I didn't want the earphones I couldn't shut off the tv screen which really bothered me. Will you, in he future,charge us for using the washroom facilities?"
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "You pay for what you get. WestJet staff are always wonderful. The fligh is a flight."
Cons: "Was't a problem with WestJet. However if ever departing from Vancouver don't rely on the wait times provided in the airport. Give yourself ab addition 30 mins extra."
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "on time and couteous"
Cons: "cramped and the seat was not padded"
Pros: "Finally sleeping in my bed in Montreal"
Cons: "Cramped seats , no elbow room , could not sleep , very difficult to sleep - muscle pain in shoulders lead to nerve impingement and numb arms . If westjet cared about their reviews they would offer an upgrade on my return to make a fair judgement again their product line"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "No food, flight attendants were okay but not especially friendly"
Cons: "theres a problem with the connecting flight so we had to run threw few terminals to board and almost missed the flight"
Pros: "I had never heard of WestJet and only booked the flight because it was the least expensive ticket I could find. I was shocked when I was given my boarding pass because I got a first class seat. A comfortable seat is such a blessing on an overnight flight because you can sleep fairly comfortably. Also, the food and especially the wine were excellent. The flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend WestJet to anyone."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with enough leg room. Crew was fantastic!! They made it a very entertaining and enjoyable experience, especially the host."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work at all for me. I believe it was also not working for everyone else. The food was also not that great. Portions were tiny, taste was ok, but definitely leaves something to be desired."
Pros: "Quality of food was good Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work No WestJet Connect Fair amount of turbulence"
Pros: "Quick boarding, friendly crew, on time departure"
Pros: "usual excellent/good service"

Pros: "I liked the free entertainment app"
Cons: "I didn't like the delay but that seemed unavoidable"
Pros: "The flight attendants were not only polite and courteous (as expected), but were funny, as well. Great service!"
Pros: "The boarding gate person from Westjet was excellent in the way he dealt with my missed flight..........kudos to him"
Cons: "The security staff were not prepared to deal with the sudden increase in volume of passengers. Since there were around 300 people ahead of me I knew I was probably not going to make my flight. I felt as though I wanted to ask everyone there if they minded me going to the front of the line as I was probably going to miss the flight, but felt too intimidated. Of course my onboard bag was flagged for further inspection so when I asked the security agent that was being absolutely riduculas with the inspectioin of the mans belongings ahead of me if she could take a look at mine as I was probably going to miss my flight she just gave me this evil look and said im already looking at this mans things. (she didnt need to state the obvious but maybe a little common sense and tact in helping to resolve customers problems would go a lot further than projecting her power trip. Not impressed at all."
Pros: "Plane change last minute causing ~2 hr delay No voucher or apologies offered for that Baggages took more than one hour to arrive .. Total delay more than 3 hours for a flight that till last minute was supposed to be on time ... Missed my ride in Toronto ... Crew unfriendly"
Pros: "The service was at the level that I was expecting. And there was the usual casual, yet professional upbeat vibe that the crew exhibited."
Cons: "The flight was slightly delayed... not sure if it was due to mechanical issues or not. Since I didn't have any connections at the end of this flight, all was good."
Pros: "The all male flight crew were the best! Polite, efficient, funny!"
Cons: "1 hr delayed departure!!"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, not sure what happened and they're not going to tell me so whatever. If this changes I will update my review."
Cons: "Check in agent very rude"
Pros: "That I made the flight"
Cons: "That the departure time was pushed 1.5 Hours which was emailed to me 4 hours prior to boarding. As I was arriving at YVR I got an email says the departure time had been moved up 25 minutes. I barely made the flight and was last person on. Would have been VERY upset to have missed the flight due to this runaround."
Cons: "We parked at the furthest possible gate in international. Ridiculous walk!!"
Pros: "No carry on space, no leg room for a 6’4” individual"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Continue not to crash. Thank you."
Pros: "Liked the comfort of the plane, on time, and smooth touchdown"
Cons: "Food was dried out, crew was extremely slow to dispense beverages and food"
Cons: "Just take a trip with. Jet am or Japan airline and clearly see the difference in how a customer should be addressed and service., politeness and how the flight attendants provide that extra mile in terms of customer experience."
Pros: "It was roughly on time."
Cons: "There was no food, including snacks, that were complimentary, you had to pay for anything (even tiny pretzel packets) except water."
Cons: "crew was rude and unhelpful with delayed flight"
Cons: "No snacks at all on a five-hour flight, and only a few beverage services. Food was available to purchase but of course it's expensive. All other airlines at least give out pretzels or something, and I even got a full meal on a 1.5 hour flight from a different airline -- everything else was fine, but the lack of food really ruins the experience for me."
Pros: "I love the variety of entertainment, it never fails."
Cons: "I didnt like how snacks werent included for my 6 hour flght. Also the amount of waste made with all those plastic cups is astonishingly ridiculous. Switch to a more green solution!!!"
Pros: "Quick boarding, staff friendly and helpful. Flight attendants ensured those with connecting flights deplaned quickly when we arrived at the gate in Montreal."
Pros: "N time"
Cons: "Food. Chicken wrap was just okay"
Pros: "They arrived on time. Not much else."
Cons: "Over 4 hour flight. No food (not even pretzels). A few old movies. Flight delay with no communication. I only noticed when I was checking in at the kiosk and noticed that my one hour layover was now a 5 minute layover. Rebooked. When I arrived at destination, no notice that next flight was delayed, even though it was over 3 hours late. Thought I only had 1 hour to go through US immigrations and customs. Ran to the other end of the airport to be on time. Aircraft wasn't even at airport and flight was over 3 hours late. They couldn't have posted that so we didn't have to run across the airport? Changed gates, but no announcement. One other flyer was looking at the board and called out to the group waiting that there was a gate change. Left Vancouver at 8:00 am, arrived in Boston at 1:30 am. Won't fly with Air Canada again."
Cons: "Horrible to fly Air Canada"
Cons: "dirt and stuff on floor between floor and wall, bad, never seen that before in a nearly new plane"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "The plane was late of 2 hours and 22 mins to board was late and once we got one sat there for an hour to board our bags. Ridiculous most poor service ever."
Pros: "Loved the plane."
Cons: "I tried to get business class it was full. In general, I don't spend for business class because AC BC is so poor (horrible food, iffy seats, broken entertainment systems). But this plane was different, unfortunately I couldn't get on."
Pros: "Very fast"
Cons: "YVR airport's Air Canada staff was extremely unprofessional. First, they cancelled my original itinerary and moved me to a flight 3 hours later. Now I understand it was holidays so I was okay thus far. I got to the airport 2 hours before the departure time and even though I had check-in online, I was requested to get into "Check-in assistance" line instead of the "baggage drop". The "Check-in assistance" line had multiple people rebooking their flights when at the counter (on an average each person was being held for 15 minutes by the slow staff). By the time I reached the counter, I was told that the gate had been closed and I will have to rebook. The staff said at that point that it was "just the way it is" and their terms and conditions have this clause saying they don't guarantee people will be boarded. Well, sure, don't board them if they're late but don't delay them on purpose and then strike them off the boarding list. Very Very disappointed."
Cons: "Electrical plugs not working on both flights, so I couldn't use my laptop."
Cons: "They picked randomly who gets in the flight and who didnt"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and direct flight"
Cons: "Problem with heating and no blankets"
Pros: "Helpful crew. Seats seemed to have a little more room. The "red eye" flight was quiet and dark. All in all, pretty good."
Cons: "My movie/tv screen was broken on one flight."
Pros: "crew was helpful and nice, especially in the terminal which is hard for mom to get around. If you need a wheelchair remember to ask beforehand. We hadn't so we had to wait sometimes while they located one for us. As we had long layovers (so mom could rest) this wasn't a problem for us, but with shorter turn around times it could be an issue."
Cons: "people were rude. couldn't lean seat back and it was a red eye so I had no sleep for 25 hours. WAY too NOISY for a red-eye flight which also didn't help with rest."
Cons: "Not offered earphones"
Pros: "Nice, polite and helpful bilingual crew. Apologetically when trouble started and we had to do two unscheduled stops in Calgary. THe second crew was also very nice but not very bilingual."
Cons: "The fact that we were over 6 hours late, and even with my old age, I went 24 hours without sleep. I missed my ride to the apartment where I was supposed to stay and had to rent a room at an hotel nearby, adding to the costs of the flight."
Pros: "Crew performed as expected."
Cons: "Entertainment systems down entire flight No support on headrests. Usually on long flights the head rests can be used to sleep, not on this plane."
Pros: "Comfortable plane!"
Pros: "staff is still largely your best feature..."
Cons: "i seriously miss not getting a real meal especially when I travel a long distance... these pay as you go meal packs really are not attractive and not tasty... surely you can organize a full meal like we used to have even if we have to preorder it and pay for it... everything just feels like a shabby cash grab... and the tv/movie screens are subject to malfunction... tapes get off tracked and make the viewing anything impossible as you can't hear the soundtrack..."
Pros: "Food from Montreal to London."
Cons: "Food from Vancouver to Montreal."
Pros: "comfort of the plane airbus 330 the staff were funny"
Cons: "zone boarding is always difficult because traveller ahve a Pavlov reflex if they see people line-up they have to join it"
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness of the plane and how the crew were kind and helpful. I liked that it was a direct flight, but I had to pay around $150 more than other flights available because this one worked best for me for my timeline of travelling."
Cons: "I did not like how the lights were kept on for the entire red eye flight. I flew to China last year on a different airline and the plane was kept dark once we took off so people could sleep. I would have preferred if the crew also only gave drinks at the beginning of the flight after take-off and the end before we landed, rather than in the middle of the flight, interrupting people's sleeps. The flight was more expensive than many I saw available and wasn't worth it other than the fact it was a direct flight."
Cons: "I did not like that I could not use my own ear phones to watch movies during my flight. Also they do not offer visa debit on flights so I was not able to purchase ear phones. Which made the 4.5 hour flight long. And my head rest was very uncomfortable, I am short and it pushed my head forward too much which hurt my neck. It would be nice to have the option to remove it. Also on a 4.5 hour flight they should offer free little snack like peanuts or a fruit cup."
Pros: "Decent movie selection. Didn't lose my bag."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours, no complimentary food on board - not even a cookie or nuts. The cart didn't come very often. Movie selection was alright but the sound was really bad and kept going on and off."
Pros: "Only liked the salads, buns, deserts and drinks."
Cons: "The main courses have too much unusual sauce on the rice and/chicken."
Pros: "The flight was direct and the food service was good and spaced at timely intervals. The crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Lengthy flights are tiring."
Cons: "Long check in line Having to pay for each piece of luggage Flight delayed 3 hrs Having to buy food Old flight attendant who should be retired Air Canada resembles a LCC. I would avoid having to fly AirCanada within North America if I can with this awful service."
Cons: "The flight attendants are extremely rude. Even when the passengers were sweet to them. In general horrible horrible horrible customer service. For that reason I don't think I'd fly on air canada again."
Pros: "The Crew was friendly enough, the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The crew "was" friendly enough, but didn't respond to the Call Attendant button (twice) when it was pushed, as my daughter was hungry. I had to go to the back of the plane and open the curtain and ask: "is it possible to get something to eat"? Our plane ticket costs an exorbitant amount, AND we are forced to pay for our meals....service would be the very minimum that we could expect.... ALSO: Although there was no charge for baggage on our flight out, and nothing written anywhere about a baggage charge, yet on the return flight we were hit with a $90 baggage fee!! The flight was already too expensive but that was just adding insult to injury"
Pros: "Friendly staff - clean, newer plane."
Cons: "Sound/video system kept rebooting in both of our seats and volume would randomly increase/decrease. Arm rest controls easily bumped (does not seem to be the reason video system was problematic)."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "It was a packed flight and it felt like I couldn't breath on the flight at times. I was stuck between two very big people."
Pros: "The crew members were fabulous."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive when I did. I did not see my personal belongings for three days. When the second leg of my journey was cancelled, I was book on a flight with a short connection. Therefore, my luggage remained in Canada while I went on to Japan."
Pros: "2 hours delay, crew was not helpfull"
Pros: "Exit seat. Leg room"
Cons: "Breakfast too small. Plane leaked on me during take off and landing. 3 hour delay on plane before take off. Stewardesses ignored people looking for water."
Pros: "Each seat had it's own entertainment station. Where you could watch movies, play games, and listen to music. We received two in flight meals. While they were small, they were still enough."
Cons: "We had a delay to leave. Only an hour so it wasn't so bad. We also had a small delay when it was getting close to landing time. We did two circles to delay before we got there."
Pros: "There wasn't any aspect of this flight not too like."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. I loved every detail of this trip."
Pros: "kind staff"
Cons: "small plane"
Cons: "Departure was late causing one member of group to miss a connecting flight. However, upon arrival a new boarding pass for the next flight was already waiting."

Cons: "Had to wait 15 mins because our gate was in use. Seats are old and hard."
Cons: "Travelled from Toronto,CA to Lyon, FR and wasn't pleased with service, food, no coffee available plus drinks were limited. And on top of that when I arrived in Lyon, my baggage wasn't delivered from Toronto (was told at baggage claim desk). I paid $70 dollars for something that didn't get delivered."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, even for economy"
Cons: "It was cold the whole flight"
Pros: "Nice crew. Nice flying."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "No charging outlet for tablets or cell phones"
Cons: "Had to pay 100$ for an extra bag because I was 4kg over weight then also had to transfer my bags myself during my layover. There was no entertainment on a long haul flight from London to Toronto. And zero space on the lonhaul flight. The least space on a plane I’ve ever had and I fly almost every week. I will never fly air transat again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Hassle free and easy. Since our airport arrival was ddlayed by rush hour traffic, the check jn process was made easier by the Air Transit attendant's assistance to be processed through fast track security clearance."
Cons: "The Food and Entertainment raiting above should be understood as Not Applicapble"
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was good and the seats were quite roomy"
Cons: "I don’t have anything to complain about"
Pros: "Entertainment system worked this time."
Cons: "Departure delay. Delay on receiving luggage. Aircraft is not so clean."
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew. Direct flight from Venice was much appreciated."
Cons: "Old aircraft, let's hope they spend more on maintaining the engines than the cabin..."
Cons: "Video system was broken, including ability to charge devices. Seats are too small for adults."
Pros: "Club class was worth the upgrade purchase. Friendly staff. Continual service. Comfortable. decent movie selection."
Cons: "Screaming baby. But can’t do much about that."
Pros: "Extremely friendly staff and wonderful service"
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "Awesome flight and service"
Pros: "No food or snacks on 5-hour flight, but you get what you pay for!"
Pros: "IT went up and down at the proper time."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. My feeling is they were designed to be in the reclining as the headrest can not be reached comfortably in the upright position."
Pros: "The food was decent and the movie selection was good"
Cons: "The seats were small and the armrests were uncomfortable"
Pros: "It was a mediocre flight, what can I say: minimal leg room, right isle spaces and not nearly enough room to be comfortable. The in flight accommodation was a nice touch. No snacks but free soda/juice/water provided"
Cons: "Nearly zero personal space. The leg room was so minimal for a woman of 5'6 that when the lovely person in front of me reclined I had no choice but to invade the person next to me. There were no snacks provided and overall an uncomfortable experience."
Cons: "Sitting in Toronto for three hours past scheduled boarding, minimal information. Missed my train out of Gatwick and only two pieces of luddage out of three."
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Pros: "Friendly service, modern aircraft"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "No space between seats and food could be better when flying over 8 hours."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and mine wouldn't recline. There was no leg room . I sat by a larger woman and had no body space . I was touching her the whole time . I couldn't sleep the whole time. It was like torture."
Pros: "extra leg room extra luggage allowed priority boarding because I had option plus on the international leg of the journey"
Cons: "No individual TV screen. No option plus offered No movies staff a little irritable when I asked to buy food as they were all attending to club class. staff much more pleasant on the international leg of the journey"
Pros: "The rest of the journey was fine, and the crew were great."
Cons: "I felt that the Rome airport manager on duty acted punitively towards me. I was admittedly trying to bring a carry on bag that was perhaps just slightly too large. But as soon as she saw me with it, she walked over the agent who was helping me and inserted herself in my check in process. This ended up in 35 minutes of phones between herself and U.S. an Canadian immigration, where I was forced to send travel documents for the whole of the 2014 and asked which countries I travelled to in 2004. She then told me my passport had been declared stolen but that I would be allowed to board my flight. I don't know what the story is, but I guarantee if I hadn't caught her eye by being a bit cheeky with my bag, none of those phone calls would have ensued. It was a deeply upsetting and unecessary experience and I plan to request a formal explanation of how the situation escalated so drastically."
Cons: "Older, tight space plane with a kids movie on overhead screens."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Deboarded at farthest terminal, they misplaced some of our luggage, moved location of luggage retrieval to further away after making us wait for over an hour. Took forever to finally have luggage arrive."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortably seated and quality entertainment."
Cons: "Should consider providing meals to children under 12yo first (for coach seating) so that they have choice of meal. My 10 year old daughter was the 3rd last served her meal on this flight when only 1 option was left. She was Ok with it, but likely because she was so hungry by then. I can see how such a situation could have been potentially very stressful for a family..."
Pros: "We were able to select our seats and got front row with amazing leg room - we are both tall so it really made our trip! Staff were attentive and friendly and in flight entertainment options were awesome - lots of shows and movies and games to select from. Our flight departed and arrived perfectly on time. We will 100% be travelling with Air Transat again!"
Cons: "Typical airline food however other options were available for additional cost. I have no real complaints!"
Pros: "Great hostesses very friendly"
Cons: "Very poor meals and entertainment"
Cons: "After the family and priority boarding, there was absolutely no organization of which rows would be lining up to board the shuttle to the tarmack. My ticket and my boyfriend's ticket also both read as "Unable to board" and with a few clicks on the computer off to the side, we were fine but got no explanation as to why that occured."
Pros: "bel atterrissage smooth, staff gentils. Vraiment bien."
Cons: "Un peu froid dans l'avion. Je ne filais pas cela n'a pas aidé mais les autres passagers aussi ont mis un manteau."
Pros: "Non-stop Lots of movie choices Two meals/snacks were free On time departure"
Cons: "Unable to confirm return flight online from Paris Seating is just soooooo cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag that all other airlines allow as carry on"
Pros: "Options plus upgrade respected during boarding. Food served during flight was decent. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Few update announcements at gate. Almost 2 hours onboard before being offered a beverage. Too many interruptions in-flight (i.e. snack, drink, meal, customs forms, headsets, another snack, captain announcements). Cabin lights turned on and snack served 2 hours before landing (corresponding to a time of midnight at the departure airport)."
Pros: "Great service. Departure on time. Decent food. Ambient lighting to allow for sleeping or focused reading."
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Cheaper?? Worth it???"
Cons: "Food is terrible. The kids won't eat the soaked sandwiches. Only candy and sweet juices available for kids. No window on row 8 and 9 in these planes!!! I alone travel with 2 kids!!! Doesn't every kid want a window seat? Nice move checkin team to put us on these row on each flight segment!! Rude old people flying in row ahead of us. Of course THEY know how to raise kids. Of course they will not change seats with us... their comfort is too precious."
Pros: "The plane They were on time. Way better than Air Canada!!!"
Cons: "Didn't like the food that much Some crew members weren't very polite."
Pros: "Landings! Seriously the pilots did a great job."
Cons: "Seats too close together. Could not get comfortable for sleep"
Pros: "Decent movie selection. Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "POOR HYGIENE: I was seated next to the toilets. Some people used the toilet before takeoff. I saw that all the hand towels fell INTO the toilet bowl after takeoff. I changed seats, but when I went to that same toilet, someone (a flight attendant, I assume), put all the damp hand towels back and people were using them after washing their hands! UGH. BAD FOOD: Also, food was awful. All they had was junk food for purchase."
Pros: "The flight from YUL to CDG was fine."
Cons: "We had a flight into CDG from Split that arrived 2 hours before our flight was set to leave. Because of the size of CDG and the long wait for our baggage from the Split flight on Easy Jet, we arrived at the Air Transat desk 5 minutes after it closed. We then had to pay MORE than our round-trip tix to get a one-way to Quebec, then taxis and Bus to Montreal, where our car was. We could have gotten on our plane if you were just a tiny bit more understanding and flexible; we were willing to jettison anything in our bags that needed checking in order to bring them as carry-on. Not happy!! The agent who re-booked us said we are at least entiltled to a refund on the trip taxes for the tix we did not use. We were travelling with another couple, Lee and Betsy Lynd, who shared our experience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice staff."
Cons: "Flight delayed one day. All hotel booking got cancelled and tour that I arranged. Several hundred dollars are wasted, since it is less than one day notice. No refund. Flight ticket was cheap, but ended up pay more eventually. Also lost precious one day of my dream vacation. Airtransat do not pay back EU regulated fine to passengers. They gave us $200 credit only can use to purchase Airtansat ticket. Which will not be happen with me again. Hope Kayak seriously consider for future relationship with them. I also disappointed with kayak too, no delay or flight cancellation e-mail received from you."
Pros: "Nothing wish I had other options at the time of booking to get to Montreal form Toronto."
Cons: "After waiting 6 hours for our connecting flight my husband and daughter had to witness the check in lady having a heated argument of how she had announced seating in both French and English when she did not announce it in English. Transat was terribly tardy on their check in so people was just increasing in number and the check in crew did nothing to assist with let folks know who was to board the plan first. It was just a mess, it really stressed out my daughter this was her first international flight and wished she had a more positive experience."
Cons: "Airline lost my flight information"
