"overall great flight"

(Canada)

Not Verified | We used swoop for our vacation to Vegas February 27-March 3 I was a little nervous after reading all the bad reviews but we had a great experience. I knew going in that everything was an extra cost including water. We prepaid for baggage online when we booked our flight to save money. We didn’t bring carry on just a personal item which was a small back pack. Leaving Edmonton our flight was right on time flight crew was amazing. Just overall great flight. Coming home we were delayed in Vegas for one hour we got a email well in advance so we weren’t sitting at the airport. The staff worked quickly and get everyone on board as quick as possible and another great flight back home.

"I had a great experience"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Hamilton to Orlando. I read a lot of reviews about Swoop before I flew and I was convinced I had made an error in booking my ticket, but I realized that this is a case of people only reporting bad news! My check-in was seamless, the staff were great, the flight left bang on time, the plane was modern and clean, the flight crew were excellent, my seat was roomy, my bags were not lost and I had a great experience. Do not despair, Swoop is not as bad as people make out.

"definitely fly them again."

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Hamilton to Las Vegas. After reading reviews let's just say I was worried about flying with Swoop. My experience with Swoop was wonderful. I have no complaints and I will definitely fly them again.

"never fly with Swoop again"

(Canada)

Not Verified | I have flown round trip Edmonton to Hamilton 3 times, and this will be my last. My flight was changed and when I went online to select a new date and time the website would not work. I was then on hold with the Swoop call centre for over 2 hours while waiting to speak to an agent. When I was finally connected to an agent she was rude and unconcerned. No compensation of any kind was offered for the inconvenience. I will never fly with Swoop again.

"worst airline ever"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Toronto to Winnipeg. This is the worst airline ever, everything is extra $, and if they select a seat for you it’s the last row in the plane, even a coffee is over 2 dollars, I had to pay 45 bucks for a carry on for 1 way, seats are very narrow, and they always delay and or cancel their flights. So if you wanna waste your money you may waste it elsewhere, unless you can afford to rent hotel rooms and pay for food for a couple of days more then you had planned, never book flights with this airline for an event you wanna attend the day before the event, plus with all the extras you have to pay,it costs the same as a real airline. I don’t understand why this company runs off of WestJet cause WestJet is a million times better. They deceive people with the “LOW” cost flights, cause at the end they charge much more then the “LOW” number you see when you search a flight, for example I booked a flight from Toronto to Winnipeg, round trip, and I got a just over 100 number on the screen at first and when I purchased it with 1 carry on both ways I ended up paying 400, but on my way back they kept delaying then eventually canceling and gave me a new flight for a few days later, so I ended up buying another ticket with a different airline and paid almost 500 for it but they kept their word and I GOT home,

"very timely, friendly service"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Was very anxious flying because the reviews didn't look promising, but it was great. I flew direct from Abbotsford to Mazatlan, flights were both very timely, friendly service, and quick. Airports were super quick to check through security, and small airports were easy to navigate. Great price, but it is budget - pick your seats on the emergency exit seats for a good amount of leg room, otherwise it will be cramped if you have long legs. So worth it for the price and no layovers.

"currently stuck in Edmonton"

(Canada)

Not Verified | These people are extremely undependable. They seem to have problems filling their planes so they keep postponing flights until the plane is filled. If you are on any kind of a schedule do not fly with Swoop. I'm currently stuck in Edmonton having suffered two flight cancellations. I am currently over 24 hours late getting back to my job and I am now promised the flight will leave this evening, over 36 hours late so far.

"Awful experience"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Abbotsford to Hamilton. Awful experience. Who flies with no carry-on or bag at all? There’s an extra $80. Round trip Hamilton to Abbotsford was $700 - inflated to be just below other airlines. As a 5 hour flight, I wanted a cup of juice and was confused when she handed me the credit card machine. The return was incredibly delayed. After the departure time is when anyone bothered to tell the waiting passengers we were delayed. Even then, there were no details or ETA. The board didn’t even change from ‘on time’ to ‘delayed’ until after the departure time. I’m sitting in the airport now, our new departure time is 10:45 - it’s 10:35 and boarding hasn’t even started. We’ve received no updates since the first and only “we’re delayed”. I wouldn’t trust my travel with Swoop again.

"never book this airline again"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Abbotsford to Hamilton. The flight got canceled a few hours before we were supposed to take off. The email which got send showed that it was canceled due to crew shortage. When we arrived at the airport we got told that the pilot was sick. That is the most unprofessional thing I have ever heard in my life. They offered a flight for the next day at 10 PM which we refused to take as we only had the trip booked for the long weekend, we would have arrived Monday morning at 5 AM and fly out again Tuesday, which was senseless. Because I was to trustworthy with the most ignorant and unprofessional airline I have ever dealt with I am stuck now with over $900.00 in hotel costs and we were unable to attend our family reunion. I have send complaints to swoop directly and asked for a fair refund of hotel cost without even getting a reply back. I emailed and I have tried calling them. When we drove home on the day the flight got cancelled, February 16, I was held on the phone for over 3 hours and then all of the sudden I got cut off and a voicemail was saying that I have called after hours and the office is now closed. I am so upset about all the ignorance we have experienced until now. I will never book with this airline again!

"Will never ever book with Swoop again"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | This was the worst flight experience I have ever had with any airline. Flying to Edmonton our flight was already delayed well over an hour. Coming back to Hamilton was a complete nightmare. Around 5:30pm we were notified that our flight was delayed an hour due to inclement weather. This didn't make much sense as the weather in both Edmonton and Hamilton were fine that day, and other flights were leaving as scheduled. The flight was then delayed until 3am, so we were stuck in the Edmonton airport for over 3 hours. Everywhere in the airport, including lounges, closed at midnight, so nobody was able to eat anything or rest anywhere other than the gate where you could hear very loud construction sounds. Again at the check-in desk we asked why the plane was so delayed and they said that there was freezing rain in Hamilton and the crew was coming from Hamilton. Every other flight leaving and arriving to Hamilton was on time, it was only our flight so it couldn't have been due to the weather. If you want to call Swoop's customer service, they will charge you $15 and are only available until 6pm MDT. The departure time was then again pushed back until 3:15am, but the plane didn't take off until 4am. This entire time there was absolutely no accommodations made for any of the guests, and there was the smallest brief apology stated by one of the flight attendants for having the plane be so late. Everyone on the plane was absolutely starving, but of course you can't eat anything on a Swoop flight unless you pay for it. It's also not even that much cheaper considering the fact that a check in bag is $50 and carry on can be between $35-50 as well. Will never ever book with Swoop again.
