Cons: "The wifi did not actually connect to the internet, most of the time."
Pros: "That they made up time in the air"
Cons: "Nearly everything"
Pros: "Great flight and wonderful service"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "The flight was excellent, thanks to flight attendant, Dan, who embodies the Aloha spirit."
Pros: "The crew and timeliness of this airline is hard to beat!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Had the exact same meal on both of our flights. Flight from Seattle was one hour late in departure."
Cons: "Your premium seating snack were dry and boring. Second leg from Seattle to.Vancouver I was charged for free drinks, snack. Then flight was barely 35 mins, waste of money and looked no different from basic seating"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and very pleasant"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. I bought this ticket from Anchorage to San Antonio TX. I paid over 100 extra to get this flight then competition just to get there as soon as possible/smallest amount of time traveling. My 9 hr travel became 18. 2 flights became 3. And all they offered me was 75 dollar coupon"
Pros: "I missed my flight and the lady who helped me get on the next flight was so helpful!"
Cons: "On my flight I was freezing. I saw first class received blankets and many of them were not being used. I explained to the flight attendant how cold I was and asked if I could purchase a blanket. I’m a very understanding person, but even after all of my attempts to warm up (i.e., drinking hot water, moving around, etc.) I was miserable and on the brink of tears. I understand staff must follow company policy but I found this to be horribly inhumane. After reaching out to corporate my issue was never resolved."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for a sardine can, but that is a given these super efficient cramming of people on the plane days. But the seats were clean and comfortable, the flight crew was professional, and the trip uneventful."
Cons: "Bigger seats are probably to much to hope for..."
Pros: "I dont like there service."
Cons: "Alaska airlines did not provide assistance and I requested to assist to re check in my baggage. I did not receive any assistance to the airlines staff. This is horrible service and not happy to the alaska airlines."
Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."
Pros: "I requested an aisle due to being pregnant and once people started checking in I was called up and they had switched my seat. (It was red eye flight so I didn’t get to experience food/drink)"
Cons: "Seats are small (but I am pregnant)."
Pros: "I had been upgraded to First class, so you couldn’t go wrong. The flight was delayed over an hour due to a mechanical issue. I am grateful that they watch the planes so closely and fix the issues."
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was nice"
Cons: "Could have had games on screens on 2nd flight--or anything like that on first flight. Beverage service was extremely slow on 2nd flight."
Pros: "The flight from hell is over. I've had better jumps from a C-130. At least I didn't bounce as much and the Army never nickel and dimed us for everything."
Cons: "Boarding? Alaska Airline had a 4 hour lay over. Crew? Ask "Chad" a question and when he's done joking around and serving 6 other people, he may get to you. Comfort? You have to pay for leg room. Otherwise your knees are in the back of the seat in front of you. Food? What food? They offered trail mix. You have to buy the cheese platter. After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death they landed on one set of wheels, then bounced two more times."
Pros: "People were as nice as they could be but they were not empowered to fix a stupid problem with an obvious solution."
Cons: "They arbitrarily changed my connecting flight - I ran and made the flight ! But they had already switched me to the later flight without telling me and then wouldn’t let me board MY FLIGHT even though there was space so I had to wait an hour and a half for the next flight"
Cons: "For real? Just cookies?"
Pros: "On time no problems. Staff very professional"
Cons: "Rotten grapes in my cheese platter."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is top-notch on-time comfortable seating service was impeccable and a great experience all around can't wait to fly them again"
Pros: "Good service this time, but plane was delayed which made connecting a major rush"
Pros: "Planes same more spacious. Crew excellent. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "They did change my flight by several hours which was disappointing as I had a very short stay made shorter. No compensation not able to get me something better. Also resulted in a 5 hour layover in Seattle. Don't like paying for entertainment or food when I pay $1000 for flights. Feel cheated and buckled and dimed. Also did not like no free checked bags. Again I find all airlines that do this insulting. One bag should be included in our flight. How many people fly without any. That is one reason I often fly southwest."
Pros: "I liked the service from the associates overall."
Pros: "My beef dinner wasn't horrible. It was mediocre."
Cons: "Where do I start... even though I booked my flights in late July for this late August trip, and even spoke to a representative over the phone about my dog being my carry on item, they never mentioned to me that my first row seats in First Class didn't allow dogs. I had chosen my seats so my partner and I could obviously sit together, but on the day of my flight(s) is when they decided to change my preferred seat which I paid to reserve and moved me into another row in First Class but without sitting by my partner. We had to get our seats fixed before each flight which should have either been alerted to me in the first place or automatically found us seats together. Also, the First Class check in before TSA was useless, as we had to go through the Assistance line anyway and it added considerable time to my trip. Also, once we were at the gate, First Class didn't even board first, but had to wait after three different groups of people were allowed to board first (families with children, injured people, and veterans). While boarding them with some priority is not the issue it's that first class should go before these, then those special groups, THEN general boarding. What was the allure and advantage of First Class? Once I boarded my flight to Seattle and had finally been approached (in flight) by my stewardess about my meal and drink options, she easily asked others before me and listed their options but with me stared blankly and gave me a judgmental look when I ordered champagne and dinner, something almost every other person before me had said to her. After that, getting service was a joke. I had to press the call button to even get her to come by when I needed hot water for my asthma cough attack, and she never even returned to me so I could continue getting more hot water (that I needed). I felt she was doing this out of racism, as I was one of the only brown people in First Class and as I observed, the only one she singled out for this behavior. Also, the in flight tablet to watch movies had grainy, low resolution and all my films were edited for children (curse words were badly edited out) and I think this is unnecessary for anyone unless they are seated with children. I couldn't imagine paying for that tablet and watching such low quality videos on it at a further extension of that cost. Finally, I was accosted by this stewardess again as we were landing for my dog's carrier bag not being shoved even further under the seat in front of me (bear in mind, I never moved my dog or her bag at any time after I had initially placed her under her seat) and honestly I found that to be pretty insulting and humiliating when all I was doing was sitting there. First Class came with literally no perks other than alcohol and subpar food, which I would not pay that extravagant price for ever again. In fact, it left me with no intention at all to continue ever using services with Alaska airlines, even though I have to travel to Alaska often."
Pros: "worst flight ever on Alaska air. paid full fare first class and treated like a freeloader. hate to see their reputation go downhill. but like most airlines now, they are not interested in the premium customer. Ill go back to Delta..."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight as far as seats were concerned. Literally felt like we were sardines. My second flight which was a much smaller plane was 10 times more comfortable."
Pros: "TMobile customers get an hour free WiFi"
Cons: "It took way too long to get a drink and the plane was hot as Satan's taint."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"
Pros: "Service, nice plan and easy ride to Honolulu."
Cons: "I don't the seating arrangement in a 737-800. Three rows on each side makes the window and middle passenger very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We were flying international and bags were checked through to our final destination AND AA did not charge us for our checked bags because it was booked as part of an international ticket. (which I didn't learn before flying so it was a pleasant surprise, most airlines want to charge you for the domestic leg of your flight)! They allowed us to board early and were very accommodating for our family of 7. I finally figured out the in air entertainment on our devises, which didn't seem to work on our previous flight. Snacks were minimal."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and the ability to change seats when it was not a full plane."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of the 737, they are just not comfortable for me. But it is ok and the flight is not too long."
Pros: "That I was finally able to go home."
Cons: "My first flight to Alaska was delayed and my flight leaving was cancelled completely. I called customer service and was told I would be given a refund for all the trouble my cancelled flight was causing making me late for work and my ride being unable to pick me up at the new landing time. I never received a refund and my rebooked flight got cancelled. I almost didn't get home on that flight either, but the customer service agent found me a seat. I never received a refund and I missed out on pay at work. I never want to fly Alaska again!"
Cons: "The cabin was way too hot. A person shouldn't wake up sweaty"
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Asked staff if there was a double seat available in the back...she said she didn't think so but never got back to me I told her I was concerned that my dog was bothering the people sitting on each side of me. I flew to anchorage on Delta & it was the first time taking my dog & they actually showed care & concern for her. Sorry Alaska no longer partners with Delta"
Pros: "We arrived late for a connecting flight--that was about to leave--and were transported by van literally from the plane to the connecting plane. The driver quickly took all our boarding passes and checked us in at the gate. We left just a few minutes later! The crew helping us make that flight were so quick and took care of us. The other travelers and I were impressed and very grateful to barely make that flight. We were all sure we would miss it when we first landed. Thank you to all you wonderful people who made that happen!"
Cons: "I'd like to see movies on the flight for no charge. But we don't live in those days anymore, do we?"
Cons: "They ran out of food by the back of the plane where I was."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time flight-crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being between two big men, I felt squished in the middle, so I don't know if the seats are smaller than other airlines, or just my situation, but sleeping was pretty much out of the question, as I could barely move."
Cons: "I was seated in 19A and they had already ran out of the Chefs sandwiches by time they got to my row."
Pros: "Everything great."
Pros: "Excellent non stop flight. My advance check in saved me from a massive tsa line as there was a special route through security."
Cons: "Your rating system gives points REGARDLESS OF WHETHER WE USED OR WISHED TO COMMENT. CONSIDER ALL THE STAR QUESTION NON ANSWERS."
Cons: "For such a long flight at night we weren't offered a pillow to use or blanket and the seats are so small and cramped it was hard to get comfortable.one snack was offered the whole flight and the prices were too expensive to order."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Flight was smooth and on time. Didn't purchase food or entertainment. Ate prior to the flight. Seats are very cramped in coach area. I'm not a big person but the guy beside me was and spilled over into my space. Uncomfortable! Upgraded to first class for the next leg of my trip."
"The seat back entertainment screen didn’t work at my seat. Staff was great."
Pros: "We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible."
Cons: "Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle."
Cons: "3 1/2 hr delay"
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Pros: "Dinner was great"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Cabin crew and entire experience was phenomenal. Cannot recommend Delta more!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food could have been better, seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Could always use a wider seat. I just hate having my hips touching a stranger for the whole trip."
Cons: "Best option across the pond"
Pros: "Some of the crew members talked loudly in the galley all night long. Mostly gossiping and complaining. We had the last seats next to the galley, so it was frustrating to not have quiet and be able to sleep. This was a flight run by Delta for Air France."
Cons: "The food was horrible."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Lisa @ the Boston Delta check-in counter is AMAZING! She's super helpful and essentially saved our vacation! Her coworkers say she's the best and I couldn't agree more! Delta is very lucky to have someone like Lisa on their team!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about! If I really head to be picky maybe the in-flight meals were smaller than I expected. But again, nothing that bothered me"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight. Funny flight attendants. No issues boarding or deplaning."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Pros: "The plane left on time if not a bit early."
Cons: "With the exception of 1 really nice flight attendant all the others were extremely moody and not helpful. I didn’t see one of them smile through the whole flight like they were just going through the motions. I’ve worked in jobs where you have to deal with the general public but you have a job to do and must smile and do your best to be helpful. I felt intimidated to even ask for anything like I was wasting their time. I love flying Delta and this was my worst experience yet."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."
Pros: "Was able to sleep for once. Nobody in center seat."
Cons: "Crying babies"
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Pros: "Great service throughout. Friendly attendants and easy boarding/deboarding processes. Would fly international with them again in a heart beat."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."
Pros: "Staff are nice, and helpful"
Cons: "Take far too long, efficiency is extremely poor, missed flight due to luggages being lost, requested vegetarian meal, when booking, confirmed at gate but didn't have me on the list for special meal. ECONOMY class has nooo room for a long flight...and no entertainment only 3 choices for western."
Pros: "Food good, wine OK"
Cons: "Discomfort bad"
Pros: "Space looked a bit cramped in business class but I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the flat bed and the additional foot well space once I'd reclined the seat."
Cons: "Need to fix the flickering lights in the JFK club lounge, the opposite of relaxing!"
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible and check in can be more organized."
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"
Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."
Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"
Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything that British Airways tried to do to help us when Delta didn't want to take ownership for their screwups!"
Cons: "Not only did we miss our Delta connection but when Delta rebooked us on a British Airways flight they refused to help when British Airways could not access our tickets. they kept saying since it was Virigin Atlantic who we originally booked through that VA woulkd have to fix it, even thought Delta was the actual carrier and the ones that did the rebooking onto the British Airways flight"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Pros: "Everything was just right"
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Online check in was very good. Liked the ability to select free seats ahead of 24hr window. Liked being air side for the whole trip Detroit airport Terminal A was good. Free WiFi 50mb + awesome. Crew were friendly and efficient Will do this trip again."
Cons: "Seat always seem uncomfortable after 3hrs anywhere! And more leg room would always help. Food was OK liked the choice of 3 meals difficult to do quality food for 200+ but keep trying to improve"
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Cons: "Friendlier crews"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"

Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Cons: "Tv in the seat to make the long flight pass more quickly."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Pros: "Excellent all round. Good price. Nice seats. Excellent staff. Good boarding and disembarking. Highly recommended."
Cons: "It does not have free food and entertainment, but for the price this is acceptable."
Cons: "The food was extremely mediocre for an $18 meal."
Pros: "Staff were helpful and smiling. Good value"
Cons: "We needed a better choice of food"
Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"
Pros: "The low cost"
Cons: "That which comes with low cost, you get what you pay for"
Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at email@example.com"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"
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: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."
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: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
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.""
Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."
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"
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"
Pros: "Crew were really nice and good entertainment."
Cons: "Paying for food and alcohol was a bit of a downer."
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: "Plus seats reasonable price and very comfortable"
Cons: "No lounge access"
Pros: "Good crew and a smooth flight"
Cons: "Loudspeaker system lousy, could not hear any announcement from cocpit nor cabin crew about safety or flight progress"
Pros: "Really comfortable plane"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. Great service. User friendly website for check-in. Efficient boarding/de-planing and transfers at Reykjavik airport for my connecting flight to London. Luggage was checked in San Francisco through to London. Lots of legroom. Fabulous Gin menu."

Cons: "More food choices"
Pros: "Connection gate in Rekyaveck wa. Sry convenient"
Cons: "Seat comfort for a new plane was terrible"
Cons: "When booking I was certain I booked checked luggage, when I got there it wasn't included, I never received a proper receipt. Boarding was delayed fit 40mins and not communicated"
Pros: "I like the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "The boarding process is not well organized compared to other airlines. Passengers should get a bottle water every flight."
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
Pros: "Nice crew, good in flight entertainment options, food and drink options are good but expensive"
Cons: "One of the most cramped and uncomfortable flying experiences I've ever had. My whole body was sore afterwards. Also, boarding was a mess with changed seats, not enough employees at the gate, and dozens of passengers crammed into a weird pre boarding area."
Cons: "Our plane was broken. Initially they said an hour late and then the time before our flight increased. Because our flight was delayed, I missed I missed an important meeting."
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable"
Pros: "The planes were clean and reasonably on time."
Cons: "No meals or even beverages were served us despite their explicit promises to the contrary..The plane changing procedure in Reykjavik was chaotic, with no formed lines, virtually no posted information and no airline or airport personnel to help. It was disgraceful!"
Cons: "Seats in business class are uncomfortable. Passenger loading was abyssmal: no advantage -rather a disadvantage - to "boarding" first, the trurh is that we had to wait standing for a bus."
Pros: "Bottle of water at boarding"
Cons: "Crew from denver to Reykjavík were rude. My wife and I travel regularly for business and these girls were short, annoyed and just unprofessional. Couple that with the plane being abnormally hot (for the whole flight) it was pretty bad. I understand it must be hard to work in this industry, but these girls were just plain bad. Probably won’t fly Iceland Air again."
Cons: "Ended up with a long layover I couldn't change after hours on the phone with your people."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The room between rows and the very narrow seats. I’m a tiny person and I barely fit in the seat. I can’t imagine an average sized person managing for a long flight."
Pros: "Exceptional flight crew and we had a smooth flight. It was my daughter's first flight and she loved it as well."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Flight was safe and comfortable. Luggage was kept in good order and the flight arrived on time in London."
Pros: "The plane, crew, and entertainment."
Pros: "See Above"
Cons: "See Above"
Pros: "Liked the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "More food options would be nice."
Pros: "There was a bar within site of Gate 32/34, so if you could find a seat there you could enjoy a pint while you waited. Again, the crew was a delight. Thank you for keeping those warm and tasty!!"
Cons: "The communication was terrible for the boarding process so people lined up for the two, gate 32 and gate 34, at the same time. The lines were extremely long and they crossed so passengers got very confused, asking each other if they were in the right line and if the boarding process had started. It was a complete cluster."
Pros: "I was able to get a good seat just behind the first class section."
Cons: "There's no free food . They should give at least snacks like sandwiches, peanuts, etc."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled worst experience ever."
Cons: "The horrible customer service. They cancelled our flight and I missed my trip to Iceland. They also gave out a non working number."
Pros: "In flight crew were friendly and efficient Good service"
Cons: "Poor ground operations - too popular for their own good. Late flight, terrible boarding process, no communication"
Cons: "Landing was terrible ."
Pros: "This airline operates smoothly and efficiently and treats their customers with respect and friendliness! Would definitely fly with them again!"
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "The seating assignments and boarding process were excruciating. almost worth looking into a different airline even though everything else was fine."
Pros: "Seating was adequate and comfortable enough."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but not shown as late on monitors. I only knew because I checked online. Once on board the plane, I heard that the incoming plane had been delayed, but there was never any announcement made prior to that. Surprised that I had to pay for food on flight, given the lateness and inconvenience of delay, plus what was available was very expensive."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Not enough overhead bin space, no food, only a small drink"
Cons: "Included in previous comment"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "No food :( Was delayed, then had to switch planes out in the tarmac :( It was cold :("
Pros: "The flight was fine, the crew was great. The only issue was it took almost 2 hours for our luggage to come out at Heathrow, the entire flight was waiting and there was no one from Icelandair to ask to neither did they send anyone to tell what the delay was."
Pros: "The Aurora lights on the overhead compartments was a pleasant touch."
Pros: "The crew, amenities, and service were great!"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy having to be transported to the train by bus in Reykjavik, since there wasn't a jet bridge connecting the departure level of the terminal to the plane."
Pros: "We really loved the price and the service was fine. Having the stopover in Iceland on our way to England was a treat and the schedule was fine."
Cons: "Bugged me that they charged for a meal on an intercontinental flight."
Pros: "Good crew, plane and flight all around. I have no complaints about the actual flight."
Cons: "When boarding, no announcements were made. One moment I was waiting to hear when we would be boarding, then next thing I know there is a mile long line at the gate. Very weird."
Pros: "Everything you hear about Icelandair is true. The crew is polite and caring and the planes are clean and efficient. I will definetly use this airline again. The price was right, the in flight entertainment was on point, and the service was above what I expected."
Cons: "I'm not sure if this was just a fluke, but the plane was freezing for me! I Had an air vent next to my feet and not even extra socks and two blankets wrapped around my feet kept my toes from turning into little piggy icicles!"
Pros: "Crew were polite, though they didn't hand pillows and blankets out to everyone. I declined a blanket, since I had one from the first flight, but was never offered a pillow, which I would have accepted. The style of this plane provided a ton of head space, which was really nice."
Cons: "The seats were really uncomfortable for such a long flight. Also, the entertainment system was having trouble for half the flight before they finally fixed it."
Pros: "Everything was great. Liked the pillow, blanket and everything offered."
Cons: "The only thing we didn't like was we felt like we were being starved into buying food. We would have bought food anyways but the lack of peanuts or crackers made us feel cheap."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Nothing, I enjoyed the flight."
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "Did not get the seating as portrayed on Icelandair website.We were seated in 2 tight seats abreast next to window. Food selection was limited to a baguette with one thin slice of ham. However, my motivation to pay up for economy comfort was for the seats. I will be seeking a credit."
Pros: "Loved the Saga Lounge - that was a great treat for us, as we were unaware that it was available to comfort economy passengers until we were informed at check in."
Pros: "Peaceful and smooth until the landing."
Cons: "Landing quite rough."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew."
Cons: "1 of my bags was delayed accidentally."
Pros: "Clean and roomy flight! Good service."
Cons: "No snacks or drinks was surprised about this on an international flight."
