Airline reviews

Pros: "Spacious Premium Economy seats with excellent flight attendants looking after general wellness of customers."
Cons: "In-Flight Wi-Fi has archaic plans… 30MB Chat App-only Plan for 2-Hours. It also usually has a pause button to halt and resume the internet session later, but there wasn’t one this time."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed for 25 min and was no information for that. Otherwise everything was good"

Pros: "The crew is usually really good."
Cons: "The ground staff at Frankfurt airport was not very good. Seemed slow lazy and difficult at times"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. It was my first time flying so I was a little nervous but they made me feel safe and welcomed. The friendly crew was honestly what made the whole experience great."

Pros: "Very cramped seats"

Pros: "Movies selection is great. Seating space is comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process could’ve been smoother"

Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"

Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."

Pros: "Perfect timing"

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"

Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."

Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."

Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."

Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"

Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."

Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."

Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"

Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."

Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."

Pros: "Flight is comfortable, food is nice. Most importantly, the flight was on time."
Cons: "The entertainment system requires additional setup, and need my own mobile device. My mobile device was low in battery while I'm on my flight, so I'm not able to view any movies during the flight."

Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."

Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"

Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."

Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"

Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."

Pros: "The crew, the food and the comfort was fantastic. I was in economy and even with a full flight I was still comfortable."

Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."

Pros: "everything great, every time again"

Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."

Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."

Pros: "Everything, got to love how smooth those A380s are, plus the service and food is impeccable. Also so much entertainment!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "This was the second time that we were able to fly to Germany with Singapore airline. I will always try to fly with them in the future. I have been on numerous transcontinental trips and I rank them as number one. They make me feel like I am welcome."
Cons: "There was very little leg room for people over five feet tall. Everything else was exceptional."

Pros: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."

Pros: "I loved the touch of luxury, even sitting in the economy , the hot towels, the good food , attractively prepared , the free wine and the courtesy of all the team. This was my third time flying with Singapore Airlines and I hope not the last time. The big plane flew so quietly, it was a wonderful flight."
Cons: "Like in all airplanes in economy the seats are too close , but when you cannot afford to fly differently it was okay, there was at least leg room."

Cons: "Wearing a face vizor on top of the face mask is silly"

Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."

Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"

Pros: "Good service but need to improve food quality and quantity."

Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."

Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Not that there is much to be done, but the passengers behind me had a small child and continued to ask me to move my seat and asked the flight attendant to ask me to move my seat up as well so that she and her grandson could have more room. However the gentleman in front of me had his seat back, so I was fairly uncomfortable for most of the 13 hour flight."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."

Pros: "everything!"

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Pros: "Liked The service and the spacious airplanes"
Cons: "No choice left for dinner and would have loved a snack"

Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"

Pros: "Getting off the plane after 24 hours of nonstop crying children"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."

Pros: "Aircraft cleanliness staff everything."

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"

More then 3 hours delay with 500 people have lots of questions. Need to answer with lot of patients. The manger behavior was not appropriate with one lady with the kids."

Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."

Pros: "الشكر للاماراتيه على مجهوداتها الكبيره"
Cons: "الطيران الاماراتي ممتاز جدا والخدمات ممتازه جدا جدا تحتاج شي بسيط وهو تقوية الواي فاي فقط طيران جميل جدا"

Pros: "Everything else was good."
Cons: "Landing at JFK was not smooth. One of seat was defective."

Pros: "I like every think"

Cons: "I found the crowded squashed seating very uncomfortable, , the 380 from Dubai to UK was wonderful, the relaxed atmosphere was great, more leg room, and the staff were extremely pleasant, not sure I want to fly in a 777 again terribly claustrophobic ."

Pros: "The staff was nice, pleasant and attentive!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"

Pros: "The crews were helpful."
Cons: "The handle of one of my checked in bags broke down."

Pros: "I like that Jet blue offers movies on the flight and that they accepted Emirates international baggage rate without any questions. That was very important."
Cons: "I can't think of anything negative."

Cons: "Reckless and inconsiderate airline. The only carrier refusing to modify travel due to Covid-19 pandemic"

Pros: "N/A"

Pros: "Awful!!!"

Pros: "The AC was working well during the flight. Food was so much better than United and crew was very nice and helpful."

Pros: "Food was great, creww was very nice"

Pros: "The loveliest crew possible and the easiest and most efficient connection logistics imaginable! Full praise for Swiss Air"

Pros: "nice flight"

Pros: "Seat was ok, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Movie options were limited"

Cons: "Entertainment system was not working"

Pros: "A good airline and a good flight. Lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "Zurich is a confusing Airport, where signs are not obvious, and the queues are poorly formed. They should improve that for sure."

Pros: "The airplane was cool and the time for arriving was correct as well as easy to check in. The pilot was good and they told us who won on the World Cup tournament I liked that. There was a younger crew memeber she was reaaally nice."
Cons: "I asked when i got my ticket for a window seat and he said he gave me one but he did not in the two flights I got. I requested the crew for a window seat if possible since I had been feelin nauseated, it did not help that the guy sitting next to me had a really bad breat and smelled bad. They offered me a sit in the middle of the plane, that did not work well because I was feeling sick, being in between a big guy and a bigger lady was not going to help at all. There was an older crew member and she seemed to be kinda discussed with the trash even though she was using gloves. Food was ok but not the best. To top it off I told them that the headphones connection wasn’t working and they only brought me a pair of new headphones. I tried mine and they didn’t worked, so the whole 8 hrs of flight I was watching movies with sound only from on side. They didn’t even bother, I guess cuz I am economy? Not sure I did see some free chairs in the lanes between economy and first class but they didn’t even suggested that so I decided to suck it up and sit on my assigned chair. The bathrooms where dirty and smelled reaaally bad from the beginning that really was disgusting to be honest. I can let go many things but not that. I had to help the passenger sitting next to me cuz he didn’t know how to do anything and didn’t speak English, he was an older man, with signs I was able to show him how an airplane works. I never complain about flights but this one was tooo many little things. Oh and what about an international flight where I have to pay for a second bag! Really? I did it on my way to Europe and I thought I payed both and then I had to do it again. Whatever money I thought I could save was a lie because I ended up paying a lot more adding the bags and additional transportation for home based on the airports. I am not satisfied at all with the flight experience"

Pros: "We were about on time"
Cons: "No power outlet, cramped due to passenger reclined fully also made using entertainment screen impossible."

Cons: "Waited for baggage at Newark for more than 45 min"

Pros: "Everything was very good. From the staff, to the food and comfort. Excellent!"

Cons: "All of it"

Pros: "Dry. I’ve food and really felt pampered"
Cons: "I paid extra for economy plus with extra legroom and a seat that reclined more - waste of money - the seats were extremely uncomfortable!"

Pros: "The service and food are very good."
Cons: "Tight space for business class."

Pros: "Staff walked around with water quite a bit, gave my kids a special kids meal"
Cons: "A little tight in economy and i am short"

Pros: "Everything was as accommodating as possible."

Pros: "Nice staff and inflight service. seats were great"

Pros: "good service, patient with passengers"
Cons: "For 9 hr flight the space between the seats in economy class was way too small. Im 1.75cm (medium) and I felt squeesed and very unconfitable not like in Lufthansa airplane flying from Newark to Dussldorf. (Flight only 6:15min) In addition, when front passenger moved his seat back on me I had a lot of difficulties with getting in and out of my seaat."

Pros: "It was an 8.5 hour flight and we got fed 2 meals, 2 snacks and had lots of beverage breaks! We were delayed a little but it was due to an issue in France, not anything to do with the airplane, and the captain found a solution faster than he had originally said he would (with the help of the tower of course)."
Cons: "The legroom in economy is just as bad as you would expect."

Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Large person next to me spilled over into my seat. Large people should sit with folks like themselves"

Pros: "Excellent food."
Cons: "Yet again, was "randomly" chosen for extra security. Flight was delayed for over an hour because of mechanical failure. A/C set at polar temperatures."

Pros: "on time, good food, pleasant service"

Pros: "The food was surprisingly good and the onboard crew was very nice and friendly. The seats seemed slightly more apart than on Lufthansa."
Cons: "The entertainment unit at my seat was really hard to hear, and from what I heard around me it seems like it's a problem at many if not most seats."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, air crew was friendly, helpful and patient. The food was actually really quite good. Entertainment kept my little ones occupied and seated."
Cons: "There were quite a lot of in-flight announcements by the flight crew - which disrupted the in-flight entertainment and irritated the little ones. The garbage dispenser in the bathroom seemed a bit small for the task."

Pros: "Outstanding service. Friendly flight attendants."

Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."

Pros: "Legroom is too little"

Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"

Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Three and a half hours delay due to technical difficulties. Food was only a small cheese sandwich and a bottle of water. Could have given us a little more food. Seat on flight did not recline. Extreme turbulence for half an hour, very scary, thought we would never make it! All in all, a bad experience."

Pros: "Best flight crew experience ever"

Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."

Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."

Cons: "Expired cheese. Loudest plane I have ever been on."

Cons: "On the flight to Zurich the passenger behind me gave me a difficult time about reclining my seat back but keep in mind he had his reclined. Coming back to Newark the gentleman behind my boyfriend made a comment how he didn't have room due to his seat being reclined. The passenger next to us was arguing with the passenger in front of her because she didn't want that person to recline their seat back. I have never experienced such rude people on a flight and I realize this is beyond your control. It made for a very uncomfortable and stressful flight. Maybe signs can be posted or a message when booking your flight that ALL passengers have a right to recline seats and if space is an issue for your comfort then upgrade to business class for more room."

Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane. Seats (economy) a bit closer to each other relative to other planes and the armrest does not fully go up which does not allow us to use space as much as possible."

Pros: "I cannot check in online for us flights so I need to get my seat at the check in. I am flying with swiss every month between Zürich and New York but a lot of Ines I get a shitty seat even if I am silver status As a frequent flyer I expect a priority handling which is not the case . No upgrade poaaibility due to wrong booking class (even if flights are very expensive) if this continues to go that way I will change airline alliance This is more a miles and more issue but it is really annoying me in a way that I really consider changin"

Pros: "Everything except the earphones was great"
Cons: "The earphones are bad and connector is 2 pins, so couldn't use mine."

Cons: "Better seats"

Cons: "Sound for on-screen entertainment not working. It was static-y all the time and completely cut out the rest of the time. I made various attempts to solve the problem, switching headphones, switching to my own headphones (which can't really be done because they have a two-prong jack and personal headphones are always one). I tried watching different movies, programs, music...it wasn't the material I was watching that was the problem. I asked the flight attendant to reset my console. That didn't work either. I just ended up reading my book the entire 9 hour trip."

Pros: "General good service, food was good"
Cons: "Airplane wasn't clean, we had hair on the headrest cover and asked one of the crew members for new headrest cover but was ignored."

Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Room in economy"

Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach). The food is really good, they are generous with drinks and the crew is really friendly and smiling! Would take this flight again without any reservations in future!"

Pros: "I was supposed to visit my father who was just put in a nursing home for a few days and the day of my flight I received an email from Swiss that they had rebooked me for the next day! So frustrating! The trip would have gotten so short that it wasn't worth it so I had to reschedule it 6 weeks out. It got my dad really upset! Thank god his health is stable at the moment."

Cons: "Delay and lost the luggage for the second time"

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."

Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("

Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."

Cons: "Bad information about delays"

Pros: "Good service, more leg room than American Airlines."
Cons: "Everything was good."

Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Cons: "Barking dogs. 4 around us! Middle seat."

Cons: "There was no tv screen, so if you don’t have a smart phone or tablet you can’t access to the entertainment. Also you should warn passengers to download the Gogo entertainment app because it’s very slow to do it in the flight"

Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."

Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."

Cons: "No good food options just peanuts and drinks"

Cons: "Everything was ok"
