The historical town of Norwich is the largest in East Anglia and is the administrative seat of the county of Norfolk. It is reachable from either Birmingham Airport or either of the London airports, but flying into London will bring you closer (about 158 km away) than flying into Birmingham (about 216 km away).
The Stonehenge monolithic complex is located in Amesbury, a small town outside of Salisbury in southwestern England. Since London is the main hub in this region you can use either London Gatwick Airport or London Heathrow Airport for your flight to England, and then travel to Salisbury which lies about 124 km from the capital.
Cornwall is one of the most popular coastal towns along the western coast of England where it borders the Celtic Sea and the English Channel. The airports of London are the closest of the major hubs, but Cornwall lies some 360 km away. If you prefer not to travel there by vehicle or train, you can fly into any of the London airports and get a connecting flight into Newquay Cornwall Airport (NQY) via the regional carrier flybe.
If you wish to travel to the famous resort region of The Lake District on the northwestern coast of England, you should book your flight to England to arrive at Leeds Bradford Airport which is the most convenient. There is no airport in this area, so you will have to travel there from Leeds which is approximately 120 km away.

Cons: "Seat confort"
Cons: "Haven’t got there yet!!"
Pros: "most of the flight attendants were excellent except one particular one who was basically yelling at passengers. she had a a logo or a badage on her that identifies her as a manager or a crew lead. she had poor manners and need major improvement"
Cons: "the seats are small and very small space in comparison to Lufthansa"
Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"
Cons: "Because we missed our connection on our incoming flight, due to a delay leaving Newark by Swiss, Swiss cancelled our returning flights. So when we got to the airport on our return day, we were not booked on any flights. We were required to stay overnight and take a United flight home. Will avoid Swiss in the future."
Pros: "Ricaro seats often broken and backs don’t stay in the upright position."
Cons: "Food is terrible. The hot pocket meal served at the end of the westbound flight is even more than terrible. The (single) Oreo cookie served for dessert on the eastbound flight is rather disappointing and truely less than one would expect or hope for from a Swiss airline!"
Pros: "Staff friendly and flight very smooth"
Cons: "The breakfast was very poor. Two different servings of OJ(why?), non fat yoghurt and bread. Coffee came with only one cream. Media screen and audio did not work, and usb charger kept turning off. Barely able to recharge phone over the span of 10 hour flight! My next neighbor had same problem."

Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "timely departure"
Cons: "too hot in the plane!!"
Pros: "Special GF meals care on board, friendly staff, good food and drinks"
Cons: "Upgraded seats to Preimium. I had a metal box blocking my foot so was very uncomfortable the entire flight. Not worth the upgrade and was very surprised this seat was considered an upgrade."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and professional. Food and snacks were tasty and Proseseco delicious! Upgraded seats were worth it for a long flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Crew just ok."
Cons: "Airbus 330 seats are too narrow and the arm rests too high. I am about 5'3" and weigh about 150. I can't imagine what a taller and/or heavier passenger must feel like in these seats. Also I dislike the "nickel and diming" philosophy used by most airlines these days making people pay an extra $29 to reserve a specific seat. Give me a price from the beginning with a seat assignment."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "insufficient AC during boarding endlessly screaming baby"
Pros: "The crew was entertaining and pleasant. The flight was short and easy."
Pros: "The Israeli crew on El Al were very polite and tried to help."
Cons: "When we arrived to Swiss desk, after checking in at home including choosing seats, we were sent to El Al desk and had to start everything from the start. We couldn't even choose seats . It was a great disappointment. We don't think we fly in Swiss again"
Pros: "You treated me with respect. That was appreciated compared to the many other airlines I traveled on during the past two weeks. I was not just someone herded into the airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive. The food was surprisingly good. I would definitely try to fly SWISS again."
Cons: "Not a big deal, but I missed the vents above the seats."
Pros: "I did not take this flight. I had to change my itinerary to accommodate a change in my work commitments and tried to cancel this flight but was unable."
Cons: "I am never ordering a ticket through your services again. And I will certainly advise friends and colleagues against doing so. Your customer service is execrable. This is the second time in a year that I have had to spend hours of time in an attempt to cancel a flight and have lost the full ticket cost because of all your terms and conditions and fine (=unfindable, unreadable) print. The lack of transparency regarding baggage fees is outrageous. I have had to pay hundreds of dollars in such fees after having had no such notice - and no inkling - that that would be the case. We call this a "racket" in the United States."
Pros: "The seat, the airport, the service"
Cons: "The tight connection"
Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me. But he did not and I had to push and shove with everyone else as their is no plan. Awful! Service was good. Lots of water and juice brought round in the night of"
Cons: "Food: not so good! Entertainment: in the section of the new releases movies was old not new:) And my bag didn't come on the and :("
Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"
Pros: "Great kosher food!"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The food and beverage offerings were very good. The service was excellent."
Cons: "I wish the dinner service flying from JFK to ZH could be made sooner in the trip to allow more lights out time to relax and try to sleep. I wish all the movies had subtitles so I could read rather than have to deal with the head phones and the bad quality sound they produce."
Pros: "Good service from attendants."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Uncomfortably cramped. Very cold plane. Would have preferred an actual Swiss meal."
Cons: "The seats were too small. No room at all!! Could not rest bcause the passenger behind me was kicking the seat the whole trip. Very very disappointed We also paid money to reserve our seats but then checking in they gave us other seats. This is not how you do business."
Cons: "There is little that can be done to make a long haul flight comfortable when a baby is screaming and crying for it's entire duration. Its behaviour cannot be helped. But it certainly didn't make the flight comfortable, nor did the young child kicking incessantly at the back of my and my daughter's seats. This could have occurred on any flight, but it didn't contribute to having a positive experience on this one. The flight attendant serving breakfast completely ignored that fact that I was awake and strolled past without asking if I would like anything as meals were being served. I informed another flight attendant that we hadn't been offered breakfast and she was able to provide us with meals. Besides this the cabin crew were courteous and pleasant. I've flown with Swiss on other occasions and have had better experiences. I'd like to think this was just a one off and not representative of the level of service that Swiss normally provides."
Pros: "The flight was quick. Overall a smooth and pleasant one. I didn't have any real interaction with the crew except to exchange the usual pleasantries of saying hello and goodbye. So to be fair, I can't rate the level of service provided."
Cons: "The flight was fine, unfortunately, there was nowhere to sit at the gate. The majority of passengers stood about waiting or sitting on the floor since the few seats located at the gate had been taken. A five or 10 minute wait would have been one thing, but a 45 minute wait is another, particularly if there are older passengers or small children who have to wait."
Pros: "The flight crew were great very friendly & service oriented as far as getting your food & water"
Cons: "My partner & I were given separate seats. We tired to reserve our seats online according to instructions & time but the online registration wasn't working properly. We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."
Pros: "Food was good and flight crew was very kind and helpful!"
Pros: "mtl to Zuric was t"
Cons: "late due to late arrival to Zurich, 45 min late."
Cons: "Unfortunately I didn't get my luggages in Florence. They arrived the day after."
Pros: "I request tow time for Hindu vegi 1st when I booked and 2nd one day befor my departure with costumer service and they confirm because last tme i flue in outher airline and i had same problem and i hard good things about Swiss air but I was very unhappy and dicipoint in my flight they told me they didn't have eany information for my special .request For my bussness i fly two times a year to India next time lam not suor I will fly with Swiss air"
Pros: "Price and crew friendliness"
Cons: "Better boarding and entertainment"
Pros: "The aircraft was barely half full."
Cons: "Delay due to fog at LHR, but this is not the fault of the airline"
Cons: "Security in Frankfurt - long lines"
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."
Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "As previously stated hated having to go through security again"
Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"
Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"
Pros: "Pilot kept us informed throughout the flight."
Cons: "Onboard services."
Pros: "Everything except delay"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Plane land on time"
Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"
Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."
Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"
Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Pros: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"
Cons: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"
Pros: "The change in seat to middle seat, different row for my wife and I was enough for me to think again about a ticket with you"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."
Cons: "The slimline seats were not very comfortable. I would hesitate to fly Lufthansa's narrow bodies for flights greater than 2 hours."
Cons: "Absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Great service. Friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration of the biz class seats. They are in a row vs in pods. Not as private as other configurations."
Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"
Pros: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING! IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"
Cons: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING. IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"
Pros: "The seats and space was ok. Exit from the plane was directly opposite the passport machines and the exit."
Cons: "The flight was very late leaving meaning I arrived in London over an hour late! With knock on problems!"
Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane loaded late then waited on the tarmac, arrived an hour later than scheduled time. This has happened to me on every one of the ten Lufthansa flights I have been on. Apparently they don't know what it is to be on-time."
Cons: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"
Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("
Cons: "They tell you to download the app for entertainment but it doesn't work. No entertainment on the flight and no food unless you pay. The service sucked."
Pros: "Flight was an hour delayed for no reason. I missed my connection that I had 2.5 hours to catch"
Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"
Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"
Cons: "Was a short flight , so really I don't have any negative impression"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and caring."
Cons: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."
Pros: "Airline crew very friendly and courteous throughout entire flight"
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "Check in process was simple and efficient. The crew on the plane were polite and friendly. Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. The sandwiches offered were extremely dry."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Both Lufthansa and United's boarding announcements fail to account for passengers' impatience and neglect of boarding group procedure. Lufthansa doesn't clearly identify when un-prioritized groups should begin to board. United should make clear that unspecified group members attempting to board prematurely will be held to the back of the queue for their appropriate group."
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
"Really different experience sitting in business! Comfortable and great service."
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Cons: "i would love to seat beside passenger who doesn’t snore bery loud."
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."
Cons: "Did not serve food."
Pros: "Casual attitude."
Cons: "better food option than a few dusty pretzels and a thimble of water."
Pros: "The plane was nice and quiet, and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "It was so cold!!"
Pros: "I did not make it on the flight as the time was given was 5:35 and the flight left at 4:00."
Cons: "I was not given correct information and being a very novice traveller did not check the information."
Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not provided. No in-seat entertainment. Late take-off on every single leg of my trip"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "Crew were great, service was spot on."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."
Pros: "On time, free coffee, free pretzels"
Cons: "Going home."
Cons: "Super Cold airplane and it’s not the only west Ket that was freezing. the crew kept skipping my row for drinks for some reason. the landing was rough."
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."
Pros: "Always pleasant to find that in an 'ordinary' seat my knees are not embedded in the seat in front of me. The USB power at the seat is important - I know everybody has it now, but still worth saying."
Cons: "Elbow crunch by a passing service cart is an unpleasant way to awaken from a doze. Is there some way that service people can be a bit more aware of (living) obstacles?"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time, friendly Westjet crew as always."
Cons: "Tiny TV screens, no real food, seat cushion was so compacted it was uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew were very amiable and one member in particular was quite funny during the seat belt demonstration. First one I've paid attention to the entire time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold and seats were quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
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: "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: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
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 firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in the plane for 4 hours when 20 minutes into the delay the flight attendants knew they weren't going to be able to fly with us, and instead of cancelling the flight 20 minutes into the delay we sat on the plane for 4 hours while the crew knew we were not going to take off. There were a handful of infants and children (my 10 month old nephew included) and for the crew to keep the passengers on the plane for 4 hours when they knew the flight was going to be cancelled is unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew ok."
Cons: "Was told need to fix my ticket from Bangkok. So after waiting over an hour to get ticket fixed, found out didn't need to. Then a rush through security . Lucky Westjet flight delayed (usual) And made flight by running to gate. Then get to sit on plane for an hour. AGAIN. Two flights on Westjet and two delayed and two sat in the plane an hour. First time missed my connecting to Hong Kong and Bangkok. I know nothing perfect, but this seems to be the norm. Next time will try to find someone else to fly with."
Pros: "No much.."
Cons: "To start.. due to your company combining two out going Toronto flights in Vancouver and then being late off the ground in Vancouver because if that we missed our connecting flight in Toronto to Ottawa. This in turn made us miss a very important appointment in Ottawa. I’m sure the company loves that they saved money by combining those flights however you flunked the test with me. All the corporate could care less about me missing my flight after they look at the bottom line but I will be taking my $1600 plus money elsewhere in the future because of the aggravation, frustration and I don’t care attitude that your company has provided me. I’ll I want to do is get back to Vancouver in my return flight hopefully put most likely on time with my two girls and forget that your company does exists. Thanks for the headaches and goodbye.."
Pros: "Hannah was a lovely accommodating woman thourghly enjoyed her service, i slept the whole way to Prince George. Crew was welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "Didnt know i bought west jet plus seats. Enjoyed my service though. May think of buying plus again some time soon on one of my up comming trips"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
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: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "I traveled from Vancouver to Edmonton today on WS 320 and one of my luggage was delayed. I had to wait through many phone call queues to get in contact with an agent and none of them were very useful. I was informed that my baggage would arrive in Edmonton at 5pm and be contacted to arrange delivery options but I had not heard anything from them and it is already past 8pm. I had to stay at home to wait for the phone call which resulted me in canceling my evening plans. The luggage contains frozen home made goods and various food items I brought back from my recent trip to Taiwan. With the food not being in a freezer for over 12 hours at this point they've likely all gone bad. I am extremely displeased with the bagging service especially when I had PAID to get my bags checked. I was told that packing food in checked bags comes with a risk and is a game but everything in life is a risk and I find that excuse from an agent very unacceptable. I am also very upset that WestJet does not offer compensation for food damages because the foods in my luggage are definitely worth over $200 and some are not obtainable in Canada."
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."
Cons: "I dislike that westjet tried to get me to pay for my seats when I initially bought the ticket, only to discover later that the seats are free if I choose them at check in. I didn’t pay the seat charge but there is a breach of trust in them trying to con me that makes me not want to fly with them again."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "The breezy, confident preflight announcements of the crew, including (from the Captain) "We are flying into Kelowna today, where the weather is always awesome even though it is a bit overcast and 5 degrees C..." and from the flight attendant on landing, "We have arrived in Kelowna. If you live here--Lucky You! You are almost home! And if you don't live here, welcome to the Okanagan! We hope you enjoy your stay." I was only disappointed that the sentence including 'lucky you' was not included in the French translation. C'est d'hommage..."
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
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: "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: "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.""
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: "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: "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: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "I can't think of a thing"
Pros: "Indeed the crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was all good!"
Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Cons: "Forced to board a bus and sit in an empty terminal. Paid for priority boarding but wasn't called for it. Pretty disorganized. Good flight but gate crew needs work."
Pros: "Great movies and TV available."
Cons: "The food and service was pretty mediocre. The plane was old and felt dirty."
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, someone had found my passport and turned it in to a crew member."
Pros: "All good, excellent crew."
Cons: "After awhile Seats were a little uncomfortable."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "fantastic customer service"
Cons: "wouldve loved to have been left breakfast while i slept"
Pros: "very friendly staff great flight with nice tech made trip fly by"
Pros: "Dublin Airport screening was fine. Aer Lingus checkin and bag tagging was super efficient (self-serve). USA Prescreening cut you off from the airport shopping, was a repeat of all you had done for Dublin Airport screening and cut you off from the airport amenities, like most of the food and all of the shopping. It was decent, when landed in the US, to not have to deal with a line and wait at US Customs."
Cons: "US Prescreening was a repeat of Dublin Airport screening (really - the same strip down and pull everything out for inspection a second time?) and it cut you off completely from airport shopping and most of the food."
Pros: "The service. Excellent"
Cons: "Pay for the food. LOL."
Cons: "US pre-entry then told to wait in line until pre-entry area closed. Moved up to general boarding area. Reason for delay kept changing with no ETD announced until 20 min before takeoff. Food voucher was nice"
Pros: "Average flight to get you where you want to go. air hostess was helpful."
Cons: "Forgot my luggage in Toronto. This is the second time with aer Lingus in the past 8 month. Had to pay for my seat and baggage on top of ticket price, was unaware."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The confort of thé seats. Way too tight for a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was comical. This was the one place in the airport where there is no attempt to establish a queue area. I don't get it. Plane audio for pilot and crew announcements was poor. Nobody could hear what was being announced. Entertainment audio was very poor - which on a long flight can make a big difference. Even tried my own earbuds and it did not help."
Cons: "After dinner, icecreme was served in Dixie cups to some passengers but not to me. Flight attendant seemed aloof."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "No complimentary free alcoholic drink with your meal on the Aer Lingus Flight."
Cons: "I was fine with a 5 hour delay I was fine with my bags not being on the same flight as me I am not fine with finally receiving my bags 24 hours later soaking wet. Everything it dripping. I still have nothing to change into now and there was no compensation offered whatsoever. Never flying with this airline again."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "They don’t even give you water unless you pay. Three hour flight. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Missed the flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew very professional."
Cons: "Stop making the seats smaller, narrower, and closer together, food was awful."
Cons: "Being charged $100 each way for checked baggage, no where on my itenerary did it mention that"
Pros: "I flew overnight from Toronto, Canada to Dublin and had a relatively pleasant experience. The food and drink trolleys came by quite quickly and frequently, and the food exceeded my expectations. The crew was friendly, for the most part. Boarding certainly could've been smoother... But overall, I'd fly Aer Lingus again for an overseas trip."
Pros: "Great seats plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The food... Yikes"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."
Cons: "they charged me 100 dollars to check a bag - nothing at all about this during my purchase. i am so mad at these guys."
Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks of any kind."
Pros: "Prompt Rebooking. The new schedule was better the original schedule with fewer connections."
Cons: "My original flights from Dublin to London and London to Munich were cancelled. The booking agency Webjet did not inform me about the cancellation. I noticed changes to my schedule three days before the flight and requested a rebooking. The entire leg to Munich was rebooked by Webjet but again I had to call and ask for an update since they don't issue a second round of confirmation emails."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment selections are extremely limited and poor. Food is mediocre and not even comparable to other international Airlines business class standards"
Pros: "the timeliness of the airline in leaving and arriving at the ports, providing meals for the passengers,"
Cons: "breakfast was not given to some of us as the air hostesses said that they ran out of food"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "At Frankfurt Main airport there was only one person at the check in counter and the lines were very long. Maybe after 30 minutes they opened another counter."
Pros: "Fast and efficient crew"
Cons: "A going-through-the-paces flight and incredibly expensive beer and wine."
Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."
Cons: "Poor gate service, insufficient information on flight, which was flown by Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Entertaining TV options"
Cons: "Did not have enough GF food options. So I went without a meal."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Check in line was very long--took over an hour. Entertainment screen did not function real well."
Pros: "Nothing. I flew with West Jet. Their review shall be posted on their forum"
Cons: "The abrupt cancellation"
Pros: "okay, nothing special"
Cons: "Munich airport had poor signage to find airline to check bags and get boarding passes as we did not have access to print them prior to the flight. Aer Lingus attendant was annoyed that we did not have printed boarding passes and would only give us the one for the first leg with incorrect instructions for getting the second leg boarding pass in Dublin. With the delay finding the counter we almost missed getting through passport control and needed the airport staffer to get us ahead in the line to make the flight. A tense start......."
Pros: "From Brussels to Dublin, we had a good flight. The air hostess was attentive enough and the cabin comfort was excellent."
Cons: "That we can't even have a cup of coffee without having to pay 3 euros. I thought that was outrageous."
Pros: "From the moment I arrived I felt very taken care of. Plenty of seating in lounge, with many of them facing runway. People were friendly and accommodating. Food was average. On aircraft, the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "------- we were very cold on the plane . ."
Pros: "Have traveled many long haul flights with various airlines in past 6 months. The Aer Lingus food was significantly better than the others. Very tasty."
Cons: "Not enough seating at gate in Dublin and the space needs updating. A complimentary beer or wine with the meals, as provided by other carriers, would be nice."
Pros: "What do you say about that loses you luggage both directions. It isn't reliable so that's it for me with aer Linus."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"
Cons: "Food wasn't very enjoyable. Breakfast was very disappointing."
Pros: "Rerouted through London, added five hours to trip"
Cons: "Flight was late out of Toronto making eight people miss the Glasgow connection. Remaining Glasgow flights for the day were full. Aer lingus staff at customer service seemed confused on what to do with us. Finally, after talking to a manager they offered to route us through London to Glasgow. Very frustrating, not sure why they couldn't hold the Glasgow flight to accommodate all of us? It would of been a lot easier for us!!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, I missed my connection flight and now they lost my luggage. Staff are very friendly, but they can't do much to help me. Icelandair is doing OK in handling the situation, but let's see...I am still in an uncertain situation"
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: "The price was good, the crew was friendly, and the on-line check in process was smooth."
Cons: "Non-functional entertainment consoles..so we could not watch anything, use our reading lights, adjust the temp, or summon staff if we needed to. With a bar in the middle of my foot space, there was no space under my seat for my personal item; No food on an international flight also disappointing."
Cons: "We had a different plane with narrow seats - ok for me but not the person beside me. Nothing but tea or coffee - all food and beverage had to be purchased. My experience. Uncomfortable and hungry."
Pros: "Fly Saga business.... exceptional food and service."
Pros: "Really comfortable plane"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Comfort in seating was lacking, also having the luggage sitting out in the rain for 20 minutes was not ideal."
Pros: "Nice business class seats, comfortable, quiet"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been larger"
Pros: "Connection gate in Rekyaveck wa. Sry convenient"
Cons: "Seat comfort for a new plane was terrible"
Cons: "Definitely not a comfortable flight. And being that it’s an international flight, some free snacks would have been nice."
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 that the flight was very comfortable & there was lots of options for entertainment!"
Cons: "Honestly it was probably the best flight I have ever taken!"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly, we had the seats behind first class so we had a ton of legroom. I would definitely fly Iceland air."
Cons: "We had a 5 hour flight and they didnt serve snacks of food. The flight didnt include bags. 2 bags cost $160"
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
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."
Pros: "Treated well, staff were kind, met some great people going to Iceland as well"
Cons: "Of course everyone would always love a bit more space - but we understand why we can’t :)"
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: "When I booked this flight last March the booking info said 1 free bag. When we got to the airport we were told that we had to pay $94 Can per bag because we had Economy Light class. We had the same issue returning but the cost was $55 US. On top of that Iceland Air changed planes and bumped us from row 10 to 41 - the last row. Bizarrely there is no customer service desk at the Reykjavik Airport - they just give you a little card with the website for customer service. I don't understand how any airline does this! BTW, they blame the third party for the issues! That is you!!!"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport is a joke. Totally disorganized. Not enough seats to sit in and wait. Many passengers were sitting on the floor. Extremely long lines for people waiting to board their flights. Mass confusion. Food court required people to show their boarding passes in order to purchase food. People learned this after they got up to the cash register to pay for their food. Again, huge confusion. Ridiculous way to treat people."
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!"
Pros: "We didn't crash so that's a bonus."
Cons: "Well first off it was a connector flight from Toronto to Reykjavik to Oslo to Tromso, Norway. The first leg was delayed and then they lost my baggage, which happens, I get it. But then due to the delayed flight and lost baggage I missed my connection to Tromso. Then apparently neither airline can do anything to help me so I lose my entire flight cost because I booked through a third party. So I had to rebook a new flight at a premium cost just to get where I needed to go or risk losing my whole vacation. On top of that the baggage they lost is my backpack...hard to go backpacking across Norway with no backpack. Then they ship the backpack to the wrong airport, incorrectly wrote down my wrong cell number so they couldn't even call me...one cluster f*ck after another."
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."
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."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Flight was safe and comfortable. Luggage was kept in good order and the flight arrived on time in London."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
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."
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "Boarding was good and crew were pleasant"
Cons: "All bathrooms were out on the plane for the final 2 hours. You have to pay for any food you would like."
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: "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 ."
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
Pros: "This airline operates smoothly and efficiently and treats their customers with respect and friendliness! Would definitely fly with them again!"
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: "This airline has so much going for it!... Pleasant staff, nice touches for overnight flight (bottled water as we entered the plane, pillow, blanket), plenty of legroom, TVs in the seat backs that work perfectly! What a treat!"
Cons: "Included in previous comment"
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: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."
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: "Good service."
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: "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."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. There were no surprises."
Pros: "The 2nd flight waited for the delayed flight from NY which was much appreciated."
