The employees at the counter when we first arrived were very helpful and kind. The flight attendants were are very pleasant and helpful. I appreciated we departed on time.
Pros: "Price was the best over competitors. Many dates available. Staff are friendly and service oriented. Coffee is so good. Food is great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "I booked online and then had to rebook - by calling the call centre. Be good to have the ability to change flights online as well. Call centre staff was good - except I assumed she’d book us sitting in the same seats as I had originally chosen (which were available - as I checked online)."
Pros: "Service was good, frequent drinks and snacks, nice little deli platter was unexpected and very delicious!"
Pros: "You constantly got food and drinks served, a big contrast to the other airlines who don't even serve complimentary food on 5 hour trips. We didn't expect to get food on this 2 hour flight so we had breakfast beforehand. We were pleasantly surprised!"
Cons: "The HS was I bit cramped!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Provided sandwich and cookie during flight."
Cons: "Minor item: Didn't provide hav charger in seats but for short flights not a big issue"
Pros: "From the coffee and cookies while waiting to board to the freshly baked items given while receiving food service, this is great customer service. Not to mention the competitively priced airfare and not having to pay an extra fee for checked bags, this airline can't be beat. I would definitely fly it again and suggest it to anyone if they're looking to fly in northern Canada."
Pros: "Great staff, service, price."
Cons: "Only negative was the flight left 10-15 minutes late. Not sure if it was their fault or air control. Would definitely book with them again though."
Pros: "Excellent airfare, super easy online check-in, friendly crew, comfortable plane, very pleasant flight."
Cons: "Flight frequency. I wish there were more flights between YVR and YLW."
Cons: "The first flight was late because the personnel was forgotten at their hotel. My luggage was lost’"
Pros: "West Jet staff and crew are always great."
Cons: "My flight was delayed over an hour - we sat on the tarmac waiting for de-icing for over an hour. There is no entertainment on this flight (so no wifi or tv) and we were not really notified how long we would be delayed- causing delays for me in Saskatoon that I could not provide information for."
Pros: "Great flight. No problems."
Pros: "A very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "The check-in process was very easy and friendly. The flight attendants seemed nicer than other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. My mother needed a wheelchair on and off each time. And the staff was there to help her . That was a blessing"

Cons: "Check in and getting boarding passes"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was the first time in 37 years that I have flown so i had a little motion sickness but that has nothing to do with your crew or airline. This experience was very good thank you"

Pros: "Safety and on time."
Cons: "Grumpy cabin crew."
Cons: "My tv was not working, landing was not smooth staff was rude specially Edward"
Pros: "What a great experience flying west jet!! The crew was so accommodating. I got sick on the plane and there were so many people jumping to help me make sure I was confortable. I’ve flown all airlines and will be flying West Jet again."
Pros: "Overall an easy experience. Cheap!"
Cons: "West jet has got to figure out a better way to board the plane- the "zone" model is a nightmare."
Pros: "Always a pleasure flying with Westjet! We even arrived 15 minutes early"
Pros: "It was easy getting through the line and onto the plane. The seat was on the window, which I wouldn't normally sit in, and was comfortable enough for me to get an hour of sleep on an overnight flight; I'm content with that."
Cons: "The fee for changing my assigned seat, thus the window seat, and one of the flight attendants was very impolite; though overall the flight attendants were pleasant enough."
Pros: "Great airport, friendly and helpful staff. Onto e departure and arrival and very little baggage wait in Vancouver"
Pros: "It was smooth and uneventful."
Cons: "It was all fine."
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: "Great service"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "We didn’t like having to take the red eye to meet our Costa Rica connection. We"
Pros: "Nice, professional crew."
Cons: "I have a dog in the plane with me. None of my flights offered to make me board first. It harder to move through the aisle by myself with my pup in her carrier and my personal effect . Some nice passengers helped me when they saw I was struggling but O feel that is the crew's job."
Pros: "Both planes departed late and reason given was staff has not yet arrived . First plane could not rationalize the number of people on board ."
Cons: "Service was slow and staff seemed to be very casual about the fact we would be an hour late"
Pros: "Quick and direct. Great staff"
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Cons: "Of the four flights I took with WestJet this holiday, 3 were delayed. The flights were frigid. On this flight the agent at the gate was very rude when I asked about checking my bag, lecturing me about the size of the bag and insisting she would have to charge me if it was a full flight, which she said it wasn’t. It ended up fitting just fine in the overhead. Totally soured my experience. I will not use this airline again."
Pros: "The WestJet staff, from gate check in to the flight crew, were excellent."
Cons: "The fact that people with pets board first is ridiculous enough to keep me from choosing WJ as my first option. They boarded before seniors and children. What has happened to our crazy world that pets are more important than people."

Watch for baggage delays when arriving in Fort McMurray as they can sometimes be excessive. No entertainment provided on the smaller planes but most people have some form of entertainment with them."

Cons: "Il serait bien d'avertir plus à l'avance les passagers au sujet de l'application nécessaire pour l'entertainement ou permettre de l télécharger via le wifi de westjet"
Cons: "It was freezing cold, and blankets now cost $4.00! So I spent the whole red eye shivering, even in my sweater! I could feel the cold air hitting me the whole flight. The boarding was confusing, with no organized lines or anything. Some of the announcements were too quiet to hear."
Pros: "The crew and staff were great on the plane. Could use more staff at the checked bags area but overall good experience"
Cons: "More agents at the check in desk"
Pros: "WestJet staff and crew fantastic"

I am not a huge fan of air travel but due to work I fly back and forth from Edmonton to Toronto every six weeks or so. IMO Air Canada is the best airline. It is definitely the most expensive but the flight crew are all far more professional than any of the discount carriers. The air craft is also configured in a more passenger friendly fashion so that it's not the most uncomfortable three hours possible. I do wish the price was a bit lower but they always get you home which is the whole point of putting up with air travel, and sadly, more than you can say for a lot of the other operations with planes in the sky right now.

Pros: "Great crew. Very pleasant & friendly."

Pros: "The crew on board all flights were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "When I arrived at my destination I found that the item I had gate checked had been damaged- an instrument case I was no longer able to close. The zippers had both been busted off. Due to time constraints I was invited to write a review and email which I intend to do. The item itself was gate checked for safety - and to me the damage says that still somehow it is unsafe to fly with an instrument which as a professional musician is frustrating. In addition flights have very limited food options that accommodate persons with gluten/dairy allergies."

Pros: "Check-in was smooth Air Canada were helpful as am travel with special needs"
Cons: "Nothing for now."
Cons: "International service quite a bit better, still not lufthansa standard, but better than crossfair/swiss"

Cons: "I work at an isolated mining camp and could not fly out due to weather and when I tried to reschedule or cancel my flight with Canadian north the cancellation fees, rebooking fees were more than the cost of purchasing a new flight straight through air canada. I will never use this service again."
