Airline reviews

Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."

Pros: "No complain"

Cons: "Missed flight due to medical emergency"

Cons: "Tight seating."

Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."

Pros: "Good space between seats. Cleanest of the restroom. Nice crew service"

Pros: "JAL is on time with good cabin crew. Food is good and enough. In-flight entertainment - 4 movies form San Diego to Narita. 3 Movies form Narita to San Diego (tail winds make the return trip shorter). I love and appreciate the toothbrush/paste in the bathroom. After a long flight, nobody wants to talk to me face to face haha"

Pros: "customer service spoke English"
Cons: "1) when my flight was delayed significantly due to weather, I was not notified until I got to the airport 2) when the same flight was cancelled, I was on hold with JAL for over an hour before I could speak with customer service\ 3) customer service could not rebook me for another flight until 3 whole days later 4) I had to look on JAL's website and inform their customer service about flight options that were somewhat sooner 5) no compensation was offered for 2 days of delays and flying out of another city (I paid for my own transport to this other city in order to make my final destination on time)"

Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"

Cons: "I wasn't able to pre-select my seat."

Pros: "Japan Airlines gets it right. The boarding was very calm and efficient. The attendants were working the whole flight to make the trip pleasant. Food was good."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Food was fair, not great."

Pros: "Flight attendants are all nice, polite and always smile. Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Waited for one and a half hrs before the plane took off, almost an hr went by then they announced some minor problem with engine. Good reason but they had a/c on so cold all these times. Also I would appreciate coffee or some drink while waiting...I guess that's not possible in this case."

Pros: "Everything. Was just outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Incredibly nice staff made you forget about the older plane model you are in. Decent airplane meals and the nonstop from San Diego makes Japan now a frequent destination for us! I lucked out with 3 open adjacent seats roundtrip woo hoooo!"

Pros: "Clean and nice staff"
Cons: "Seats separated from my friend for 14hrs."

Pros: "I love flying jal"
Cons: "It's not so much the flight as it was the plane, the 787 seats recline too much for the limited legroom you get so if the person I front of you reclines all the way you will ride with there seat in your knees the whole way"

Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."

Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"

Pros: "Very good premium economy seats and airline service was excellent - highly recommended"

Pros: "That it was comfortable."

Pros: "The crew member was excellent and his charisma really made up for any shortcomings this little "puddle jumper" had. He even helped my companion out with some advice for relieving his ear pressure."

Pros: "Went premium economy for such a long flight- NYC to Tokyo- to Sydney. Seats were great as was crew and everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "The hospitality of the crew"

Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Economy seats were far more generous than AA. Premium Economy was a great value! I will look to travel JAL over AA more in the future."

Pros: "Service with a smile goes even longer for long flights. Excellent service throughout the flight. Loved the feeling of spaciousness, even in Economy. Great sleep as a result."
Cons: "Number of movies available in Entertainment was limited, especially compared to competitors like Singapore Airlines. Ran out of good choices on a long flight."

Pros: "The aircraft was clean and boarding went smoothly. The flight was late but the staff seemed courteous, polite, and apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal when I booked the flight roughly 1.5 months prior to my trip. However, when the meal was being served, there was only a chicken or pork option and my vegetarian meal had either not been properly booked or had been forgotten. When I informed the staff, I was asked to show proof that I ordered a veggie meal. I could not pull up my email confirmation as we were flying and there was no internet access. I had to lug my bag out of the overhead and search for a print out confirmation. I had not come prepared with the "evidence" the stewardess wanted. While the staff tried to be polite, I also found them to be quite rude, demanding that I produce evidence. Could they not have simply given me an extra salad without all the fuss? I felt I was being treated as a criminal for requesting a veggie meal that had, unfortunately, not been recorded in their system."

Pros: "The schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"

Pros: "Good food, real silverware, blanket and pillow provided to economy class, crew offering water and tea through the cabin constantly but unobtrusively."
Cons: "Long, long flight, not much leg room."

Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"

Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."
Cons: "The JAL first-generation 787s don't provide the great legroom that newer planes do, but is still infinitely better than older 767s and 747s."

Pros: "Service & seats are great."
Cons: "The connections were a bit late, making the long trip longer!"

Pros: "The aircraft was a new 787 and very comfortable. Uneventful flight."
Cons: "Menu in business class."

Pros: "Customer service is great."

Pros: "I love your hostesses"

Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Service was okay."
Cons: "Could have been more customer focused!"

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "More snacks on a long flight would be good. Hot chocolate instead of tea and coffee would be appreciated by non-tea/coffee drinkers."

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and food was Delicious as compare to other airlines."
Cons: "There should be add more variety for toddler food/breakfast.As they served the same food which is for adult. Most of the time we saw Babies were not eaten the spice food....some cookies,cake,pastries etc should also be there as secondary option for choosy toddler."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Baggage collection at Washington could be improved"

Cons: "Qatar Airways always goes beyond expectations in every detail of its serivices . Always top niche of Aviation company and wonderful travel experience."

Pros: "Good service and a modern airplane"
Cons: "The check in at JFK, too chaotic"

Pros: "Flight not full, so space to move. Great service"

Pros: "The service was excellent & food satisfying."
Cons: "The liquor variety could be better."

Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."

Pros: "Service was great for such a long flight. It would be good to have like a snack bar for people to purchase snacks."
Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."

Cons: "My baggage was lost!"

Pros: "Nice"
Cons: "Everything ok"

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

Pros: "From the exceptional lounges to the cleanliness of the plane, the food options in business class and the flight attendants , Qatar Airways was excellent"
Cons: "The only issue was the movie options for the Hollywood options. There should have been more newer releases for such a long flight."

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "The plane was virtually empty and the service was good."
Cons: "The plane from Doha to Dar was infinitely less nice than the plane from New York to Doha. It was borderline offensively unequal."

Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Pros: "Liked the fact that the pre-selected choice of food was served"
Cons: "The quality food was bad. Staff seem to be frustrated more than trying to help."

Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."

Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Cons: "Could add paper towels to toilets. Tissues are too soft to wash up and dry hands and face!"

Pros: "All around a great experience."

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "Good, attentive service by the crew."

Cons: "The seats were particularly narrow and uncomfortable on this flight. Quality of food used to be better."

Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."

Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."

Cons: "they pot me in another flight"

Pros: "Airport staff were friendly, Flight crew were good. I was in an exit row so I can't comment much about normal economy, but my legroom was fine. lots of movies to choose from. Deplaned onto a bus, that took us right to the Transfer Security which saved me a recently long walk."

Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."

Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"

Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"

Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."

Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was forced to purchase a return ticket or was not allowed to board the plane. Had to pay 850.00 dollars. In process of requesting a refund."

Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."

Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."

Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."

Pros: "The crew, the food overall experience was excellent. Special thanks to two crew members Mohammad and the other crew she was from India. I got her name unfortunately lost the paper with her name. Her name stars with G or C I think.Thank you for the excellent service."

Pros: "It was on time"

Pros: "seating and personal TV screens was good"
Cons: "limitation of family seating for traveling with kids under 2 is not helpful. I would argue that kids >2 can take more time and effort... I was a single mom traveling with a 3 and 6 year old and there were no accommodations made such as earlier boarding or helping us sit together"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Flight on time."

Pros: "Hawaiian Air is very well run. Just a good experience compared to the other carriers... I wish Delta and United's fleets were as clean and efficient."
Cons: "Well, we sat next to two babies. I think what Japan air is doing is right."

Pros: "On time! Nice crew."
Cons: "More entertainment options for a 10hr flight. Food was not the best, no variety."

Pros: "In my opinion tied for best airline out there with Alaskan. Ease of everything is excellent. Staff are great. What more can you say."
Cons: "Fly into Detroit."

Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seat assignment available only at the gate despite online check in 24 hours before flight"

Pros: "Selected seat with extra leg room. Quite comfortable."
Cons: "More check-in windows to accommodate the volume. Only eight windows to checking three different flights. Waiting tims in lins was over 1.5 hours. Incredibly bad service!"

Pros: "The crew!"
Cons: "The seats seemed smaller than normal. And it was almost a 6 hour flight and there were no free movies or tv. Kind of a bummer."

Pros: "The staff on the flight was great."
Cons: "Screaming babies everywhere."

Pros: "Free food"
Cons: "Limited outlets for a 9 hr flight. Have to pay for a movie"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Hawaiian is just full of kind people and good vibes."

Cons: "It is a long flight! At least we have free entertainment, old movies that’s fine and charge for new releases. Think about it! Thank you!!!"

Pros: "Crew was nice and served drinks several time instead of just once."
Cons: "The flight delayed taking off by half an hour and cut my transfer to connecting flight to SF as much. I had only an hour to get through custom and claim luggage to checkin again. But connecting flight terminal was a different one. Hawaiian should provide an agent to direct us to get to the gate."

Pros: "I found the crew with Hawaiian to be always wonderful and generous in spirit."
Cons: "It is unfortunate that the staff works for an airline that is such a bargain basement in terms of customer service. We booked in January through priceline. Hawaiian airlines cancelled the late night flight we had paid for, and by cancel I mean the 10PM flights were cancelled across the board. We were put on an earlier flight, but they cancelled our seats, and "lost" the fact we had already paid more for extra leg room. So we paid $240 for something that they said we had no proof of. Despite that it was clear we had paid way more than the ticket would have cost otherwise, which we kept telling them."

Pros: "I was extremely pleased with the comfort/amenities. I also enjoyed the smooth flight. Traveling on an air bus 330 as compared to a c-130. Is the smoothest thing around."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The Service, crew and flight were all good, very good landing."
Cons: "The flat bed seating was uncomfortable, I was squashed up and happy to get out of the seat on arrival. I was seated in 1C"

Pros: "I had the whole row to myself and it was awesome"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours"

Pros: "Large plane. Good hospitality."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for food. Pay for movies and TV."

Pros: "It was nice having a small meal (although the chips were the best part) on the flight considering you can't get much through security and everything in the airport costs a fortune."
Cons: "For a 6 hour flight I would have enjoyed a few more movie options to keep me busy."

Pros: "Crew was fabulous, flight was almost empty, great sleep, great breakfast, wonderful experience"

Pros: "Food, service, and on time."
Cons: "The temperature is too cold inside the carbine"

Pros: "As I indicated it was OK!"

Pros: "A mechanical issue meant our late night Sydney to Honolulu flight was cancelled. As a consequence, we were on the runway from 9:30 until 11:30 while they tried to fix the problem. Then we were at the airport until 1:00 am getting a hotel voucher and re-ticketed. Unfortunately, instead of having a day in Honolulu to deal with jet lag before going on to San Diego, we lost our Hilton reservation in Waikiki. We ended up getting a direct flight to LAX and on to San Diego. I will say the crew attempted to work with us. Daniel made an executive decision and got us on United. But no stopover in Hawaii."

Pros: "Friendly service and a nice aircraft."
Cons: "There is an inflight entertainment system but all of the content requires payment. Non of the films are offered free of charge. Movies cost $8."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Windshield wiper broken delayed the plane"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Plane looked well maintained"
Cons: "Delay in boarding by almost hours with no real explanation as to why"

Pros: "Offered free hot meal"
Cons: "Very tight seating"

Cons: "The captain announced our arrival time saying it was Pacific Standard Time ! (It's still Pacific daylight Time). Didn't exactly inspire confidence."

Pros: "The flight staff was amazing! It is really hard to fly 15 hours in one day but each flight was filled with amazing flight attendants and pilots!"

Pros: "Excellent seats! Friendly flight attendant and lots of snacks plus a gift bag."
Cons: "A little bumpy"

Pros: "Crew and smooth boarding"
Cons: "Check-in process could be a bit better. No food, no entertainment but that is ok as this is a short flight."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding."

Pros: "Good in flight food and services."
Cons: "How come hawaiian airlines, who continually advertised moana and hire they sponsor the movie, but they don't offer it?! I was really disappointed."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 4 hours prior to departing for Phoenix. This was absolutely ridiculous! No communication or updates as to the situation."

Pros: "SMS update about changing departure time allowing for adjustment of pre departure"
Cons: ">3h delay due to crew rest need"

Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "The times during the flight that I wasn't sleeping."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding & exiting quick and easy."
Cons: "Small airport, but not much staff to help you either. Getting boarding pass & baggage tags was a bit of a disorganized mess."

Pros: "My experience boarding was a bit of a disaster as the boards at the airport stated an incorrect gate and reported an hour delay which was not correct. I ended up having to sprint to make the flight in a different wing an hour before I thought it was leaving. I barely made it onboard. I think this is an issue with the airport, not the airline but this is the only forum I have to state this. My experience with the crew was amazing. Very welcoming and hospitable. My experience with the airport staff was the opposite. Very unhelpful and cold. The flight went fairly smoothly, but, as is the case with most American airlines these days, the seats are uncomfortable and cramped. The inflight meal was good (for airline food) and very much appreciated on the 6 hour flight. Overall, this was a pretty typical American flying experience. Unfortunately, I was returning from flying with Asian and Australian airlines which were much more comfortable and customer-focused, so my experience on Hawaiian seemed subpar."

Pros: "Seats were comfy, planes were new."
Cons: "Expensive entertainment on international flights No vegetarian or healthy food options, despite 20hours of flight time each way (NYC to Sydney via Honolulu) Absolute mayhem checking-in in Sydney and Honolulu. Hawaii airport is terrible for transfers."

Pros: "Flight attendants were kind and humble. Good food."

Cons: "Plane was late departing, reportedly due toi maintenance."

Pros: "Hawaiian theme, especially the safety video. Extra Comfort seats."
Cons: "On the flight from Sydney to Honolulu the pitch and width of the Extra Comfort seats was not any bigger than the coach seats. On the shorter ( :-( ) flight from Honolulu to LAX it was."

Pros: "Not thing I like in Hawaiian airline, even the Honolulu airport."
Cons: "Airline crew not friendly, very disorganized, no seat assign, need to assign seat before boarding at the gate, make me so nervous, especially in Sydney Airport."

Pros: "As always I love Hawaiian airlines. The staff are always gracious, efficient and organized. Very professional"
Cons: "I really thought the in flight meal was not great and there were no movies. I didn't realize until 2/3 through the flight I had to rent an i pad. But that could just be my fault"

Pros: "The price was decent from Honolulu to Sydney."
Cons: "1) The self check-in process at Honolulu airport was terrible! The kiosks didn't work and there's NO one there to help! Wasted 45 minutes trying to print my boarding pass and luggage tags. The kiosks also didn't work at Sydney airport!! Crazy system.... 2) The seats are super small! I remember the economy seats on Japanese and Korean airlines are much bigger and comfortable. 3) The food was terrible and can't compared to the Asian airlines."

Pros: "Free food"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Exit row -- lots of room! Very short flight -- not much to say!"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Vegetarian Food to be Improved."

Pros: "quick flight. tasty snack"
Cons: "nil"

Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."

Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."

Cons: "Did not know that we had to download entertainment app So consequently no inflight entertainment Pack in like sardines"

Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"

Cons: "Delays due to storms slowed our departure and made the boarding process a little confusing"

Pros: "It is always a good flight with Qantas,great staff are friendly and helpful for me and all passengers.like watching the movies,meals are good quality.You are updated with what is going on as you fly."
Cons: "A twenty minute delay on landing and was raining in Bangkok but that is ok."

Pros: "Staff was wonderful. Food and cleanliness was good. Pilots communication was accurate and helpful."
Cons: "We were travelling with an infant. Although we had requested for crib/bassinet we didn’t get one. To add to the anxiety, we noticed that none of the bassinet seats were allocated to parents with infants. There were at least 3 families with infants and lots of children due to school holidays. But we all had to make do with our cramped seats. Maybe Qantas can plan this better. It isn’t so difficult as they usually know how many infants are travelling, in advance."

Pros: "We strayed to competing airlines the last few trips, but can't best Qantas for friendly service, inclusive and on time departure"

Cons: "Qantas left our luggage in Sydney. Once we were in Koh Samui it was up to Bangkok Airways to sort it out. The file reference we were given wasn't recognised by the Qantas website, the three phone numbers in Bangkok just gave a 'number disconnected' message and one was no answer. We had to cancel a planned event on day two and shop for clothes for a specific activity on day three. The only way to make contact with Qantas was via Instagram, Luggage did appear but so far no contact or apology from Qantas. We will not fly with Qantas again. Virgin Australia is our carrier of choice who outperform Qantas in every respect. This flight was gifted so we had no choice."

Pros: "Great crew, nice clean aircraft with lots to watch via their streaming service Flight left ontime and arrived early"
Cons: "Food was good but not great"

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."

Pros: "I’ll lile it all"
Cons: "My foot rest didn’t extend all the way up, button was broken"

Pros: "staff were very friendly"
Cons: "the entertainment equipment had a glitch and not function properly"

Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."

Cons: "Flight was late departing."

Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"

Pros: "Complimentary Inflight drink and the effort from crew to accommodate English second language passengers in my row."

Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."

Pros: "Food was a improvement luggage transfer to connecting flight great a"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."

Pros: "good"

Pros: "On time. Nice cup of tea and a bite to eat. Good entertainment if you have your own device (I did)."
Cons: "Entertainment system.took a while to connect to and dropped out a few times."

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"

Cons: "entertainment screen on the back of the headrest was smaller than an ipad screen"

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas domestic is always chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"

Pros: "Seat so small , lack of back support and cushioning"
Cons: "Seat is so uncomfortable. For the 6 hr trip need a back adjustment for such a cramped environment. Need review my future travel on Qantas"

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Pros: "Customer service was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no Sauvignon blanc on the wine list"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."

Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."

Pros: "Friendly service"

Pros: "Appologises for the delay and the pilots attempt to make up time. The care taken during the turbulent period."

Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"

Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."

Pros: "Service was too notch. Despite software issues and timtams out of stock, crew were lighthearted and joked around with passengers. V refreshing."
Cons: "Comfort still has room to improve, a foot rest would be a step in the right direction. Particularly for us shorter types or those who like to curl up and sleep. Also random upgrades (eg. Exit rows) is always appreciated. Online dinner special was excellent. Breakfast was terrible, maybe because it was the last meal so not as fresh?"

Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"

Pros: "Crew were good & Gold ( Emerald) FFlyer so boarded well"
Cons: "Small seats (narrow) isle seat, being knocked on the shoulder by passing people"

Pros: "Got away on time"
Cons: "No wifi on board or entertainment"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."

Cons: "Overstuffed storage bins. Absolutely chaotic and abysmal boarding process"

Cons: "Seats too narrow with little leg room."

Cons: "The infotainment system was from the 90s"

Pros: "Handled the delay professionally with full transparency."

Pros: "-"
Cons: "If this flight was just cancelled from the beginning- a lot of time wasted and did not get a refund for the cancelled flight."

Pros: "Very rude behavior of the staff at the desk. Flight was 7 hours delayed and then canceled. And the staff were not able to give us updates. They were being rude."
Cons: "Ground staff should need more training how to treat passengers. They should show little respect towards their passengers."

Cons: "Flight got cancelled. Still not to Vancouver. Wasted a whole day traveling, about 19 hours due to delay, canceling and try to get rebooked. West Jet does not run on time."

Pros: "A flight is a flight, nothing to write home about - a mode of transportation."
Cons: "Weather and deviated disarrangements tainted our vacation."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly on this short flight"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"

Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn't delayed got hours while we were stuck on a plane!!"

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was full and my carry-on had to be checked due to other passengers bringing oversized carry-on. The beverage service did not occur until 10 minutes before landing. Options were limited to water only. The flight was extremely rough and the pilot slammed the plane on landing."

Pros: "Wifi Decent snack More then 1 drink in plastic cup. How about full can TV working"
Cons: "No smile on your staff They look frumpy in their uniforms like nuns"

Cons: "The delays, better coffee brand"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I booked a flight for Tuesday the eighth and you guys changed it to the seventh, this has never happened to me before I am furious!"

Pros: "Took off on time and it was a smooth flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was unorganized. Once your ready to board you should call out seat numbers starting from the back of the plane to the front and if someone tries to board before their seat has been called they should have to wait. This would eliminate all of the passengers to rush on line in order to get to their seat and to have space in the over head compartment."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Sitting at departure gate waiting for two passengers to get kicked off, hard landing"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The waiting area, lateness of the plane"

Pros: "There was adequate leg room on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn’t print my boarding pass ahead of time as the West Jet Website was down."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "It was smooth right from booking online uptil reaching destination"
Cons: "As it was an early morning flight I would suggest a better snack something like sandwich keeping in mind if giving option for veggie"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"

Pros: "The flight was on time both boarding and landing. My checked baggage was there when we arrived at the baggage spot. This was the best part."

Cons: "slight delay in takeoff but otherwise good"

Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy. Boarded among the first passengers in the last zone group to board the aircraft. All overhead bin space already gone. Sat with my knees up around my chin for whole flight. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "My flight got cancelled many times due to the weather condition. I’m happy that west Jet keep sending me the updated flight. And when I have to call and speak to someone, my calls got answered within 15 minutes. I’m happy with the service over all. Thank you."

Cons: "snow caused my flight to be cancelled instead of the direct flight to nyc i flew via Atlanta. due to the timings of the flight - landing at 2.30 am, leaving at 7.30 am - i had no option but to sleep on the airport floor i will try to avoid fliying with westjet in future - staying loyal to air canada - to avoid the risk of such a terrible flight diversion"

Cons: "The snacks were awful."

Cons: "Non comfortable cold sensation."

Pros: "The pilot was very informative about when we were leaving and what was causing delays"
Cons: "The flight attendant was pretty rude when I asked for help with finding space to put my carry on bag. The seats were INCREDIBLY uncomfortable, they are too shallow and I felt as though I was going to fall off of the seat"

Cons: "Only gave me 20 hours notice, and put me on hold for an hour when I tried to call"

Pros: "The ground staff at the gate kept us informed of the delays to the flight."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed, apparently because a crew member called in sick at the last minute. Then we had to wait on the runway for the plane to be de-iced. This could have been done while we were waiting for the crew, rather than after boarding."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They were not on time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "It my first time with westjet, it surprised me with feee upgrade to plus seat, the service is expectacular ! Looking more flights with them in the future"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Gate change"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. Boarding was seamless and smooth. Departing from New York, they proactively asked the passenger to volunteer checking their carry-ons ahead of boarding so they didn't have to waste time when boarding the flight."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The snack could have been something more substantial. The overhead cabin space both for departing Toronto and departing New York was was insufficient."

Pros: "Ease to board, on time boarding"
Cons: "Return to gate prior to take off"

Cons: "Rough landing and held up the taxiway for an hour"

Pros: "Over all the flights were great. On time, smooth and friendly staff."

Pros: "The granola as the in flight snack."
Cons: "There was not enough options if you wanted more water, or juice. There was not even a soda option available."

Pros: "I had 2 checked in bags, the charge a bit to high, When fly between Canada - USA, 1 allowable check-in luggage should be included in the fare. Please think about it."

Pros: "It was an hour and 10 minute flight, so there wasn't really much space for error. They still gave me snacks and drinks which I didn't expect considering how short of a trip it was."

Cons: "I was traveling with a piece of artwork and had to check it in oversized luggage, but as I was going through customs, I wasn't allowed in, because the Westjet team couldn't find it. I was escorted to their waiting zone, where I spent 1.5 hours waiting in limbo trying to figure out what I could do. Thank goodness the flight was delayed 80 minutes, because I was finally able to make the flight with 2 minutes to spare after running to the gates. The flight time, 65 minutes. I find it hard to believe the flight got delayed an entire flight. To couple that, when the plane landed in LGA (where I am as I write this), we're stranded on the runway because we don't have clearance to pull into our taxi area."

Cons: "Everyrhing was great"

Cons: "Trip from Toronto to NYC should not be so long. Between boarding getting delayed to finding a gate in NY laguardia, it was just extremely exhausting."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"

Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."

Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."

Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
