Pros: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Pros: "That the flight took off on time."
Cons: "Sitting on edge wondering if the flight was going to take off as so many flights were delayed or cancelled."
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!"
Pros: "everything else was awesome!"
Cons: "for much of the flight, the temp. on the plane was way too hot and there was nothing we could do about it. as i'm prone to anxiety attacks, especially while flying, this was a great concern"
Pros: "It was great experience once again. I always travel with WestJet as it is always on time."
Cons: "That every time I travel I always get the farthest seat if not on #28 it's 24...wish next time I can get in the middle at least. Other than that all is good."
Pros: "Due to a baggage check-in snafu, we were very late to arrive at our gate. But we made it! And the staff were still very kind to us even though we arrived so late and they didn't know why. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever been on, and the snack and beverage service was just fine - I loved that cookies were an option and not just pretzels. Overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "New food items were good"
Cons: "boarding is still an adventure outside the gates. Jostled about 30 times by flight attendants in my aisle seat. Almost seemed intentional!"

Pros: "Friendliest crew, good entertainment system. Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Desperately need a lounge facility in terminal 5 Chicago"
Cons: "The media system barely worked."
Cons: "Not one complaint"
Cons: "Food options not much variety"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Crew was friendly. We got drinks and snacks twice on the 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The cushions are getting thinner with every new plane. That makes for hard surface and an extra rough turbulence experience. Arm rests are almost non existent again very uncomfortable on a long flight. No Monitors in seat so no uou have to 1 have your own device or RENT one from WestJet. No place you put the device, so you must hold it in your hand for hours. VERY uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive. They still give away snacks too which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked about the flight other than the discomfort of the seats, but there is nothing they could have really done to change that!"

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "No on board entertainment. iPads did not work"
Pros: "First time traveling with my dog and it went well."
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."

Cons: "Air Canada was the only airline flying to ny that was delayed."
Pros: "Everything went as expected"

Cons: "Long time till take off"
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: "I was disappointed that for the first time since I have been flying, they did not allow my carry-on with me. It was not that bad though because by the time I got through customs and made it to the baggage carousel the bag was waiting for me."
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: "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."

Cons: "Food was bland, but as expected on a transatlantic route. Good selection of drinks. One of the suitcases missed the flight, but was promptly delivered the following day.

Cons: "Delayed because of mechanical issue"
Pros: "Nice interior. Free movies."
Cons: "Air Canada is always delayed."
