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: "Overall not much, other than the staff was nice!"
Cons: "Flight was suppose to be delayed two hours, so got to the airport hour before flight was suppose to leave at 3:45 but delayed till 5:45 so waiting in airport all day. Flight didn’t actually leave until 6:30-6:45. Which made pick up arrangements at destination cost me more money. I usually Kayak often and want to continue using it."
Pros: "I liked it was a small plane. Short flight so no food or entertainment provided, other than the kid that had never flown before, sitting behind me."
Cons: "It was Delayed by 40 mins but I did get on it, so that's a bonus."

Pros: "Full refund for cancelled flight"
Cons: "Frustrating but it’s a weather thing"
Pros: "The lady was calm at the gate, explaining that we wouldn’t be leaving and trying to help everyone flipping out. 1. Flight was delayed 2. More delayed, meaning we miss connections in Calgary 3. Canceled"
Cons: "While my flight was to Abbotsford, my final destination was to the US (Seattle). Canceling the flight meant I miss my 4 hour ride home from Abbotsford. When asking if I could change my final destination, only destinations in Canada would be allowed. I spent a fortune getting flights, planning rides, to make it home by the 26th and tend to responsibilities by the 27th. I realize weather delayed the flight, but once in Calgary, it would have been nice for WestJet to even scope the opportunity to get me home. #StrandedinCanada"

Ask for a pizza or hot dog after eight hours of the 15 hour journey and its sorry we don't have any - yeah really!!! Lost one of our ski bags coming back and one bag going to Vancouver - after 5 days missing - not our problem mate call central baggage! I had three bags coming home - I'm gold stays no excess baggage - going there we stopped overnight in Vancouver - BAM $251 excess baggage charge - they are inconsistent and won't respond to emails or phone calls. Fly United and save yourself the misery of poor service."
