Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Pros: "relatively inexpensive"
Cons: "my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me the flight left late, so arrived ~2.5 hours late"
Pros: "The crew are always great."
Cons: "The past few times my flight has been delayed"
Cons: "Head crew person was lazy and bad attitude. The rest were very good"
Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Pros: "Made it home faster than thought."
Cons: "Could use a pillow/blanket on a long, overnight flight like this. Small amounts of turbulence also cancelled in-flight services. Very uncomfortable flight."
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: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "All it was good."
Cons: "We were 25 minutes late and they did not let us board."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Cons: "Very few options were available to redirect me to my final destination"
Pros: "Downloaded WestJet app in Toronto while waiting to board the next flight. Enjoyed the selection of free movies and TV shows. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The connecting flight to Halifax was a long haul at the end of B terminal. Same airline, just really far away! Maybe it has to be that way due to the international arrival, but it was stressful. Wear tennis shoes! Flight attendants were efficient but not as friendly as the Toronto folks. The advertised “power at every seat” did not work."
Cons: "Electrical was out so not able to charge my device"
Cons: "Doing in flight entertainment via app is a fine idea. But your app requires way too many permissions so I won't use it. Otherwise, an excellent airline."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Flight left on time and arrived early."
Pros: "I'm trying real hard not to give WestJet a hard time but my seatmate had genuine mobility issues and the walk to the gate AND out to the plane which was unusually far from the terminal...little help here folks!"
Pros: "I’m very good"
Cons: "Should have been home by midnight but ended up landing at 1:45 am."
Pros: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"
Cons: "There was not enough room for my carryon for some reason and so I had to sit with my knees up and feet on my bag. Not the worst but there should be enough carry on space for everyone."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "The efficiency of boarding and de-icing, seating.arrangements and on time arrival plane was clean and my.tomato.juice was cold and delicious."
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "WestJet Connect, food, fast service on board."
Cons: "Time to take off. A flight attendant told us to go back and register the car seat before boarding, but it was not necessary. Waste of time."
Pros: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was somewhat delayed but everywhere it announced it was in time. Even at the luggage carousel upon arrival. Must keep the statistics up!!"
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Cons: "Too small of a plane. Using twin props instead of jets.. Depends on the time of departure. You pay for preferred seating and get jammed into this de Havaland jumper plane. Noisy and then the gate is at the end of the old part of the Calgary airport. Having to board and get off the plane in rainy weather. How bush for both airports. Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"
Pros: "The service was fantastic. It always is. I always use west jet and have never had any issues. Friendly staff very helpful. I will continue to use west jet. My parents live in Calgary and I travel a lot for work so you will see me again."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival"
Pros: "I had a 5 month old baby and the crew was super smiley and friendly. Also, the flight wasn't full so there was plenty of room. I really enjoyed my experience. Thank you Westjet!"
Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"
Pros: "Everything was great!!"
Pros: "The courtesy of the flight crew, and above all, the smooth flight conducted by the Captain.T"
Cons: "There were no specific "hiccups" or negativity pertaining to the flight."
Pros: "Not long to go through checkin."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "I forgot sparge photo on the plane and only realized this when i was picking up my checked bag. A crew member was able to get it off the plane and bring it to arrivals for me. I was very thankful."
Cons: "Seating was tight; I was a little too close for comfort to the passenger on my left."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Always friendly and helpful...great to see and experience!"
Cons: "Flight delayed, crew didn't remove garbage before landing."
Pros: "Crew wonderful, cheery and helpful"
Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."
Cons: "I felt a little like a sardine. I didn't eat or watch the entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are tooo small. Plane too warm and air nozzle pressure too weak. Shape of window made seat even more narrow. Wow!"
