Flight was cancelled. Better would have been communicating an alternative flight on the same day.
There were endless delays on all 3 flights, and there was little to no communication concerning the delay as it was happening, on our last flight (YYZ to SJU). One flight attendant was rude; needs retraining.
Westjet staff today came to my aid like everyone would hope for in a time of need. I was unwell on the flight and had to have assistance from the plane into the terminal. Caring and efficient is the best way to describe The staff who helped. Thank you

Cons: "Could not recline seat in row 30"
Cons: "Poor service before boarding."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Delays are common yes, but the “system” to re-route or re book was a horrid FAIL. I’ve never encountered such inefficient system for something so common as a flight delay. Made a call to Expedia to make changes to hotel reservations and never got the call back for confirmation of requested changes."
Pros: "Short flight, great staff. No food or entertainment, so no rating"

Pros: "Fun, friendly crew on a boring routine short haul flight."

Cons: "So there was a problem with the aircraft. Some cargo nett8ng was broken so they had to move the baggage from the rear to the front hold. The pilot can on to inform us of what was happening, assuring us that our baggage would arrive with the flight. B7t not surprisingly they lied and about 30 ppl didn't get their luggage. It never made it on the flight and won't be until the following morning. So I have no clothes. No jacket for sub zero temperatures. It would great if they could at least tell us that there will be a problem. Not lie I'm not impressed. I'll do my best not to fly westjet again."
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Loading was an absolute disaster, never seen it so slow before"
Cons: "Late landing as usual and YEG's ground crew wasn't ready ... also as usual."

Pros: "I like that it wasn't a huge plane"
Pros: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."
Cons: "Flight was late and kept getting later as the day wore on. Nobody seemed to know how late we were ultimately going to be and why. Missed my meeting."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have had. On time, Great service and excellent entertainment system. Plus seat had lots of room as well"
Pros: "It was a good flight. Comfortable and on time."
Cons: "I rated food low as there wasn't any nor did I expect it. No problem."

Cons: "Some of the announcements were a bit fuzzy."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff exceptional !!"

Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Bad landings"
Pros: "Great pilots, helpful & friendly crew. Appreciate WestJet humour. Smooth fast ride."
Cons: "Plane could use a good cleaning. Windows and table smudged and dirty."
Tha table was dirty. I had to ask a crew member to clean it up.
Late to board late to depart captain gave inaccurate information
Cons: "The crew was so rude"
Cons: "In flight entertainment wouldn't work despite following the instructions, so I gave up after about 45 minutes."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew was nice."
Cons: "Need something more substantial for food in first class on a cross-country flight."
Pros: "Crew wuz gööd"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "One attendant looked and acted,like she had just gotten up after a rough night. Never smiled, watched people put jackets and even a fast food bag in the overheads without ever saying a word."
Pros: "Quiet, evening flight."
Cons: "Departure was delayed 30 minutes due to customs inspection of the aircraft. Not American's fault."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "There were no power ports on this flight."
Pros: "Not much. I did arrive to my destination with my bags!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed boarding and.leaving the runway! There was very choppy communication as from the airlines as things changed. I arrived and hour late from an already late flight! The attitude of the attendants was not the best either. They seemed to be tired and it showed in their service."
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of another flight before ours and there was poor communication."
Pros: "Pleasant and attentive crew"
Pros: "Normal expectations were met"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "The pilot made up for a lot of time. The flight was said to be 1 hr 40 minutes about but we touched down after about only 1 hour in the air. Deboarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. We eventually boarded and then spent another 30 minutes waiting to taxi. Another narrow plane with not much room."
Cons: "The seats were SO uncomfortable and my legs were cramped up into one position because there wasn't enough room for legs and knees."
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Cold no food"
Pros: "Crew were ok Captain was informant"
Cons: "Delay Heat on plane at 98 degrees upon boarding"
Pros: "The boarding and flight were both good"
Cons: "Paid $10 for WiFi that wouldn’t even allow me to stream some music or open a web page"
Cons: "The flight and the entire process with American was just fine. What bothered me most was the rude treatment from security staff in Philadelphia. Compared to security staff overseas, the U.S. rates the lowest of the 55+ countries I've visited. It does not reflect badly on American Airlines, but it does give travelers a bad lasting impression. As an American, I'm embarrassed by their behavior."
Cons: "the usual garbage AA flights on CRJ's with poor on-time performance and frequent maintenance issues..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "AA has nine boarding groups, which queue up in two lanes. Each of the two lanes hold about 5 people, at most. This is ridiculous. It creates enormous crowds of people jockeying to be near the tiny lanes for when their number is called 5 or 10 minutes down the line. AA needs to reduce the number of boarding groups, lengthen the lanes, and provide more of them. No other airline boards this way. That's because this boarding method is stupid. Unsurprisingly, our plane took off late because they couldn't get everyone boarded in time."
Pros: "Much more room in seats than expected"
Pros: "It was great! I got an entire row to myself."
Pros: "I got here."
Cons: "Everything else. American cancelled my first flight from MSP to ORD. And when I got to Chicago, it cancelled my next flight to Nashville. The flight I managed to get on departed two hours late. There was no explanation for each of these cancellations/delays. There was virtually zero inclement weather anywhere, save for most of the country’s temperature being nearly equivalent to the surface of Neptune. And, the surly, clueless Chicago-based gate agent was the coupe de grace in my search for a reasonable explanation after which I waited impatiently for this episode to conclude. American get your act together."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on and pay for it. I was not charged on my way to lax or my trip to Hawaii. Sad. And person was rude"
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Pros: "It was on time. Nashville airport is sparkling clean with very happy and warm staff throughout the facility. As opposed to Philthydelphia the city of Unbrotherly Love."
Cons: "We boarded an hour late and then sat in the runway for ever. Flight was scheduled to arrive in Nashville at 1137p we arrived at 148a! Ridiculous"
Pros: "Most things."
Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Cons: "First hearing news of my flight being severely delayed I asked the ticket agent if I should just drive down to DFW from Lawton he reassured me that the plane would get there with time I had to make a split decision to drive down very rapidly"
Cons: "I didn't get home til 1am bc of this flight delay. A lot of the passengers were on the final leg of overseas travel, so we had a really hard time with the delays. Boarding was inefficient. Cree counted us like 6 times. Why is that necessary? Plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The male server was great. The ice cream for dessert was magnificent."
Cons: "First class was awful- no drink service for far too long, didn't have my food order that I selected ahead of time, the female asian flight attendant was not friendly at all, the seat reclined at the back only there was nothing for your feet, the blankets were awful, and movie selection was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Never boarded plane cause dates were wrong"
Cons: "Now me owning up to mistake costing me $500+ extra"
Cons: "The boarding was seemed unintelligent. Why would a passenger in a window seat have to wait until the other middle and aisle passengers board. I got on the plane and had to wait for the other two passengers get up and step into the aisle so I could take my window seat. I was in group 7 and apparently they were in a lower number group that was allowed to board before me."
Cons: "COULDN'T GET ON THE SECOND LEG BECAUSE DIDN'T MAKE THE FIRST LEG"
Pros: "Overall friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Arrived on time, left on time."
Cons: "It was inconceivable to me that I could not get a seat assignment until I actually checked in at the gate. While AA offered the option of paying extra for additional legroom, if you declined the offer, you could not obtain a seat. I know that it is getting unusual to have any sort of enjoyable experience on an airline, but the lack of transparency ("group two" for boarding is actually the fifth group to enter the aircraft) is totally unnecessary."
Cons: "That i booked a flight that departed 6:20pm on Alaska Airlines and found out i was put on a red eye American Airlines flight that left at 11:50 pm. In addition did not reciveve any notification of the change. Had to leave the airport because i thought i was leaving at 6:20 pm :("
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "It was a very quick flight! I got some great rest and went right into work, ready for the day."
Cons: "They checked my carry on, and it ran me a little late leaving from Nashville waiting at baggage claim."
Pros: "I was welcomed and make right at home"
Cons: "Did not like having to stay overnight in Charlotte but weather can do that to a traveler."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seats.. The crew working for American Airlines are polite and nice. From the very time to get the boarding passes and my luggage handling and all the hospitality, am really looking forward to fly more on American Airlines."
Cons: "There is not much to not like American Airlines as I don't have any bitter experiences till date and I don't wish to encounter too lol I would like more snacks beside Pretsels too and I wish to have a very good hot Fliter coffee or even green tea's during my flight ☺️"
Cons: "Seeing as this flight was cancelled and we had to wait as two elderly people until 3pm the next day to get another flight and American Airlines would not compensate in anyway. I would say that we will never fly American Airlines again nor will my family. This was not the only delay or cancellation because of American either. We spent 48 hours traveling because of delays and cancellations and still American would do nothing for us. I'm 66 and my husband is 72 (who also has had back surgery for five slipped discs) and we had to sleep on concrete floors and had very limited money to buy food. It was by far the worst experience of my life and I would encourage everyone to not travel with them."
Pros: "Service and friendliness"
Cons: "Person sitting next to me smelled awful. Several passengers asked to move because of how awful the smell was. This individual should not have been allowed to board for basic sanitation reasons."
On the bombardier Q400, and the seats have much more legroom than WestJet. Definitely get the aisle seats on these small planes.
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Cons: "Eliminate an acceptable two and a half hours delay in take off time due to catering planning issues."
Pros: "Food OK, seating OK, crew professional."
Cons: "Air Canada, whose flight this was, was understaffed and disorganized in Milan. No kiosks for self service, no identification of which line to wait in for what, lines spilling over into common area with >100 people and their luggage waiting. Waited almost an hour just to get a boarding pass."
Cons: "Problems with the emergency lightning caused the flight to depart two hours late"
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "Such a small plane"
Cons: "Air Canada has completely gone down the tubes and super quickly."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Upon landing, we made it through customs. Each step of the way when our tickets were scanned, we we told our flight had already departed... Even though we had a 4 hour layover. Even the boards showed the 8:55 pmflight had already departed.... At 5pm. Finally made it to customer service and they gave us the gate number and confirmed the flight didn't leave until 8:55. Then the flight got delayed 20 minutes. No problem, but after boarding we sat in the cramped and poorly cushioned seats for 45 minutes before takeoff because the plane needed servicing. Air jets would not turn off and my husband, who had a window seat, was freezing due to cold air constantly blowing around his feet. When we got off the plane he could barely feel his feet."
Pros: "It’s not everyday that you get a meal for free on an airline in addition to friendly service. Even though the flight was 7 hours, it was a smooth and enjoyable one."
Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."
Pros: "The service was terrible, the crew did not care about anything and not willing to help or resolve issues."
Cons: "I did not like the Air Canada service."
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so I sat in my own row,?which offered spare leg room (I’m 6’2”). Time to fix the leg room issue on Rouge flights — it’s 2018."
Cons: "Crew seemed uninterested in general. On phones in back while people struggling to find luggage space. Coffee cups and plastic utensils, etc, stored in overhead bins so people at the back had to search for carry-on space elsewhere, again, without assistance from on board crew. Offered service only once and many were sleeping so didn’t get anything. The overall check-in process could be easier, as the app doesn’t always work as it should."
Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."
Cons: "This is my 4th time getting my flight cancelled with air Canada for no apparent reason. The food was horrible and the service was worse. Never again."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "The crew were really great and very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The plane on departure was extremely cold for almost the entire flight. The in-flight entertainment system didn't work on any of my electronic devices (3 cell phones and a tablet we're all attempted but none worked)"
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane were excellent."
Cons: "The wireless entertainment system is slow and glitchy and did not work on an older iPad. The food was subpar but by airline standards was middle of the road."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, no in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Rude staff, delays both to and from Toronto on my flight and numerous others."
Cons: "1, no food 2, pay for the luggage 3, very small leg room 4, too low temperature in the cabin and no blanket"
Pros: "Crew were excellent, flight itself was comfortable once finally underway"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, never given an explanation. My bag did not arrive with my flight from Victoria to Toronto. I was never told why this happened, and I was refused entry through customs and forced to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "We were missing some of our luggage and now 7 days later are no closer to getting it than we were .We haven't gotten much help or satisfaction."
Cons: "Poor boarding by zone number which all customers just block the lineup old plane outbound"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "We never got on this flight because we were delayed due to an emergency landing. Couldn't get anyone to help us get home sooner than 24 after when we were originally scheduled to be home in Nashville."
Pros: "Planes were clean, relatively comfortable & flight attendants were polite. Flights that had individual screens on the seatbacks offered good movie choices."
Cons: "Ugh. Delays of 1-2hrs each on 3 of 4 flights for one trip. Missed connecting flight in Toronto. Baggage was a disaster. No communication between staff, was told something different by each person I spoke with. Flew to London & didn't get my bag for 3 days. Flight delays put me in to London a day late, wearing same clothes without access to my bag & lost 4 more hours of site-seeing time following day calling the airline & trying to meet up with courier delivering my bag. Then on my 7hr midday flight back to the states our plane had no screens at all for in flight entertainment. Security and Customs check process was ridiculously long. Waiting in line after line, and the automated kiosks processing passports were fickle delaying lines & leading to further follow up by staff. Very confusing and overheard several passengers talking about missing connecting flights. I highly recommend not flying Air Canada until they become more organized."
Cons: "We left late in a plane with little air, got to Nashville and had to sit for an hour on the runway in a hot plane due to hate not ready. Clearly not staffed properly as there were multiple open gates in plain sight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 45 mins. The Toronto Airport Terminal B was hellascious. No AC. Then we had to turn around after we were half way to Nashville and change planes. Not a good way to end a great trip back from Europe."
Pros: "Food was much better than I've had on a plane in years"
Cons: "touch screen was very finicky"
Cons: "One of the crew member was so rude to petition. We were surprised and very unpleasant to watch her attitude and way she talked to people. So bad! And your costomer service phone lines are terrible!!!!! Never answer the phone and waiting time is over 30min! What kind of airline customer service line is this horrible?"
Pros: "The price was decent."
Cons: "I was travelling with a 13 yr old and expected to be seated together when I booked. I didn't know I needed to pluck my seats if I didn't want to pay extra. The woman at boarding moved our seats, however, closer at boarding, which I thought was pretty considerate."
Cons: "The flight to Frankfurt was an hour late, so my bags didn't make the next flight to Warsaw"
Pros: "Crew was surly overall on flight. On ground they looked bored-one on first leg of flight seemed hung over"
Cons: "Changed my flight home do my layover went from 1 hr 30 min to 5 hours!"
Pros: "The space I had for my feet and legs"
Cons: "The lights that had to stay on during a red eye flight"
Pros: "comfortable seats and friendly staff"
Cons: "no problems with this flight"
Pros: "Very fast flight"
Cons: "In flight Audio didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 4 hours due to Air Canada needing a mechanic to check and sign off on the tire tread on one of the wheels, the ground staff enforced the carry-on bag size arbitrarily and inconsistently, and the entertainment system froze up and reset itself at least 3 times on the flight. Apart from the captain, the rest of the Air Canada staff exhibited the usual bureaucratic and defensive behavior I have unfortunately seen multiple times before. They're expensive (with a nasty computer algorithm that raises the price by over $100 each time you browse flights. The first time I checked, it was $300+; by the 3rd time it was over $600. When I used a VPN, the price magically went down to $300 plus, which was still a lot) and the experience is generally unpleasant. I have to brace myself for their lack of common sense behavior every time I deal with them. If I didn't have to fly with them, I wouldn't."
Pros: "the flight attendant was nice at least on this flight"
Cons: "the flight was delayed for an hour in a terminal where 4 other flights were scheduled to take off at the same time. the flight was delayed for an hour, and then I sat in the plane for another hour. The staff in the airport were super rude and didn't seem like they cared at all. There was nothing express about this flight."
Cons: "No TV on an eight hour flight. Food was terrible!"
Cons: "It was late arriving in from TO. We had to pre board due to a handicapped companion and there was no time to settle with all the rest of the passengers shoving to get on due to the lateness. The majority of the flight was through turbulence. No one helped with placing bags for the handicapped in the overhead. They did not call for the wheelchair at arrival nor was there an attendant att arrival to push the chair up the ramp."
Pros: "The meal provision and drink service was very speedy, seats were relatively comfortable. No on-board video was available only wifi service through personal devices."
Cons: "We had a delay for 1 hour 20 minutes after boarding with no air conditioning. My other Air Canada flights also had no air conditioning while awaiting takeoff, and it was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. The crew tried to make it better by bringing cold water around as we waited but it was unbearably hot for a solid 30 minutes."
Pros: "Great service (Business Class)"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours due to fueling issue in YYJ (not Air Canada's fault) Breakfast (business class) never varies and is getting somewhat boring"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, flight on time, service and staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding should be from the rear of the aircraft to reduce congestion in the aisles. Need more vegetarian food options."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"
Cons: "after wetting half hour in the line they said i didn't pay for my ticket and tell me to parches a new ticket"
Pros: "Flight was on time, the crew was great and the free movies helped pass the time."
Pros: "I was able to be put on later flights (my first leg was delayed several hours due to weather), but the staff either didn't have information and/or directed me elsewhere to obtain information. That's about all good I can say about the trip."
Cons: "Poor communication from Air Canada staff about when the next flight would be, moving us off the plane after it had to return to Victoria, only to send us back on within ten minutes or so."
