Cons: "Lost bags"

Cons: "No inflight meal, no inflight entertainment for 10 hrs onboard."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"

Pros: "staff did the best they could to assist"
Cons: "Flight change, would have like more options to reschedule flights. However good service from overall."

Pros: "The pilots made the trip in great time. The landing was good."
Cons: "We were told we could board the flight, then when we got to the steps in the cold and dark we were sent back.The staff were not very friendly with the customers somewhat superficial, but with each other it was like they were at a party. Not impressed by the 2 young women."

Pros: "Crew was awesome, very friendly"
Cons: "10 hour flight, and you pay for gross food."

Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."

Pros: "From checking in to my arrival I enjoyed the service. The crew even on ground were helpful at the checking in. The light refreshments were okay. I am impressed. I had no on board entertainment so can’t comment on that."
Cons: "Nothing in my whole experience with WestJet on my trip."

Pros: "Sensible ticket price"

Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."

Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"

Cons: "Freezing cold flight. They charge for everything, including baggage. Won’t use this airline again."

Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"

Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."

Pros: "I would give the crew 10 stars if I could! This was by far one of the best flights I’ve ever been on. I’m not a fan of having to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment, and it was a bit cold for my taste(I also had to pay for a tiny blanket). However, other than those two very minor things, it was a wonderful flight. I have never flown with a better crew, you could really tell they all actually enjoy their jobs. I loved that the pilot had a great sense of humor, he told a few funny jokes after we landed(while we were taxiing) it definitely helped make the time pass faster & I honestly think it put everyone in a good mood :) I have never been more satisfied with a flight. I will most definitely recommend WestJet to everyone I know, and will be my first choice for flying myself."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment. I was disappointed that I had to pay for a blanket & that the blanket was so small. In flight WiFi was kind for expensive and didn’t work very well, it kept disconnecting and the only thing that really worked was iMessage. Having said that, overall it was a great flight! :)"

Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."

Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"

Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding was a good experience"
Cons: "The fact that the plane was supposed to land at 3.35pm and we actually landed at 4:40 and for some reason we waited to get off the plane with no apology from anyone. The service was not satisfactory and they broke our stroller."

Pros: "Seats. Great crew members"
Cons: "Having to pay for everything"

Pros: "Piot gave clear and timely announcements as flight was delayed do to weather,. In-flight crew were friendly and providing a relaxing environment. The include meal was very good."
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Bathroom was in terrible condition."

Cons: "It wasnt possible to connect to entertainment system or wifi even though I had paid for wifi"

Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Delays. Canadian debit card not accepted on flights even though an American debit card was."

Pros: "The plane ✈ flew without incident."
Cons: "Airplane left late, no in flight movies, menu of food was very unusable. Because I am lactose intolerant, still, lots of cheesy entrées on the menu."

Pros: "I will never travel with west jet again"
Cons: "Everything Staff was so rude"

Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Very efficient boarding process and friendly crew members."
Cons: "Make sure to pre-order a meal up to 48 hours in advance, and to download the Westjet app to get access to free movies/TV"

Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "No meal included in 7hrs oversea trip. They had 3 services - two snacks and one coffee only.othereise, food was for purchase only. No checked luggage included."

Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."

Cons: "There was only food for purchase which I did not try, entertainment also did not use as I did not have the app"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."

Cons: "Good Choice of movies to watch on my tablet, but sound was really bad, worse than when i play my music from my tablet on the same earphones"

Pros: "The friendliest crew ever!"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"

Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."

Pros: "Our choice to pay the upgrade to Plus seating was WELL worth the cost. My husband and I had never flown 'first class' before and thought on this almost 9 hour flight we would give it a try. Wow! Seat comfort was fantastic. Service was wonderful. Food was great. We were made to feel like royalty."

Pros: "The crew and their attitude"
Cons: "The planes are worn out with the result that they often have mechanical problems. When the new promised planes arrive this will be a great service. The saving grace of the current service really is the personnel, unlike US carriers if they can help they will."

Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The gate in LGW was one of the farthest in the aiport. The flight ia 8.5 hours and the ticket is not cheap. But you have to pay for everything. Even onvboard entertainment. The only free thing is the soft drinks and that is even rationed. I flew with worst airline and for long flight they at least give a free meal."

Pros: "As always crew is very attentive. They make the safety presentation fun and engaging."

Pros: "The return flight was acceptable. seats were comfortable. Would recommend on spending the extra $$ on get extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Flying out on December 24, the airline kept us at the airport for 6 (including 2 hours on the plane) hours before cancelling the flight because they could not get water pressure to the washrooms. We were supposed to leave for London (LHR) at 8:35pm and were notified of the cancellation at approx 2am on December 25. The only other flight that would be available would be on December 25 at the same time the 24th flight was supposed to leave. The service desk was not taking any requests for finding or re-booking flights, we were supposed to call their support number at 7am on the following day. We were offered cab fare accommodation from and back to the airport. They offered hotel stay which I passed on. They provided $60 of airport food that could only be used at certain restaurants, not compatible to purchase chips or drinks (non-alcoholic) from other stores. The coupons as compared to Air Canada, which are valid for a year were only valid for 24 hours. In the end the only "monetary" compensation I got from WestJet was 250 westjet dollars that expire in 12 months."

Cons: "My flight was delayed for 23 hours. It was scheduled to leave at 8:30pm on December 24th. I spent Christmas Day in the airport and in a hotel. Consequently I have no desire to fly with WestJet again."

Pros: "Ended up getting quite the deal on the flight back and forth between Toronto and London. The flight did leave a few minutes later but nothing unexpected. The crew was very nice and very friendly. The food was decent, they came around for drinks 3 times and twice for snacks (you have an option of pretzel sticks or biscuits and they're both pretty good - I'm partial to the biscuits. Not gonna lie, I was able to ask them for both a couple times, and they obliged."
Cons: "There are no onboard entertainment systems, you must bring your own device and even then their WestJet app has bugs - so the app kept crashing on my Nexus 5X whenever I tried to play a movie or TV show."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"

Pros: "Friendly crew (mostly). Entertaining and witty announcements! Like that food is an optional extra, not in with the flight price."
Cons: "Was flying alone with my 8-month baby. At five hours in he needed a break from sitting on my lap. After standing for a while (in the least in-the-way spot we could find) a flight attendant began to get huffy each time she passed and finally asked pointedly if she could get something for us. I offered to go back to my seat which she said would be helpful. In hindsight I think she could have given us a little more grace given the age of the baby and length of flight, or at least have explained the situation more politely!"

Pros: "West jet has always been the airline I choose to travel with, even more now after the fires in Fort McMurray"
Cons: "The 7 hour flight is just long and hard for anyone's body"

Pros: "Nothing. WestJet charges astronomical prices for poor service which cannot even compare with budget airlines."
Cons: "I paid $15 for a meal on this flight seeing as it is transcontinental, and I would be hungry at some point. I chose a vegetarian option. The stewardess dropped off the meal, which was pasta with a side of pasta salad (no vegetables in the vegetarian option..), while I was sleeping. My girlfriend asked for wine to go with our meals, which we were charged for at an additional cost. The wine arrived an hour and a half after our meals arrived. Later in the flight, a stewardess dropped off a Turkey croissant sandwich on my tray table, waking me up for the second time that trip. I called the stewardess back and explained that I hadn't ordered a Turkey sandwich. She explained that a sandwich came as part of the meal I ordered. I stated that I would be happy to receive a sandwich, but that the Turkey did not correspond to the vegetarian option I had specified. She proceeded to take the sandwich away, and did not return for the remainder of the flight. I have issues every time I fly with WestJet; poor performance, service, and customer relations. I've travelled on 7 different air carriers in the last 28 days, and WestJet is by far the worst. I paid €19 for a flight from Munich to Brussels from a WestJet competitor, received excellent customer service from smiling stewardesses, complimentary Beer and Wine, and even chocolate and a snack. I paid over €500 to fly with WestJet, and received nothing but a resurgent sour taste in my mouth. I've given second, third, and fourth chances with WestJet but I believe they have lost my business forever at this point. Truly disappointing to say the least."

Cons: "No room"
