Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Seats where uncomfortable. They didn't have the adjustable padded headrest even though we did coming to Winnipeg. You can no longer change your seat selection 24 hrs before you're flight without a fee. There was also no entertainment coming from Winnipeg even though there was entertainment going to Winnipeg."
Pros: "The check-in process was very easy and friendly. The flight attendants seemed nicer than other airlines."
Cons: "Communication from you all. I missed my flight because of the terrible instructions and communication"

Pros: "Super fast. All on time."
Cons: "I didn't like in a middle seat and being told that in order to move to an aisle seat I would have to pay $13.50. Normally with Westjet it was always free to change seats at Check in. It's frustrating when things change and you only find out at the time of check in rather than at time of booking."

Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and the staff were good."
Cons: "WestJet was 30 minutes late to board. Also, if you're going Int'l during a peak moment, give yourself at least 2 hours to process your entry. It's crazy how many people are going thru JFK."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."

Pros: "inflight entertainment was good and friendly staff"

Pros: "It was on time and short"
Cons: "We were delayed by roughly two hours, sat on the tarmac with no internet or other entertainment, services etc. This made it difficult as I was looking to get home on time and complete work in the air."
Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."
Pros: "Updates even though flight was late."
Cons: "Review for airport NOT WestJet : Had to go through so many steps between arriving from YUL to get to my gate.Not enough clear signages."
Pros: "Friendly WestJet Staff."
Cons: "Long hike to the plane but the price of airport expansion."
Pros: "Luggage came fast. Car rental was great."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
Pros: "From check-in to cabin crew, everyone seemed helpful and knowledgeable. Flights on time, cabins clean and pleasant, seats comfortable, with good leg room."
Cons: "Entertainment a bit limited."
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"
Pros: "Check in was fast, on time, landed early, entertainment worked"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"
Cons: "We were delayed ... was supposed to take off at 7:30 didn't take off until 9 .. I've sat on this plane longer than I was in the air"
Pros: "Our choice to pay the upgrade to Plus seating was WELL worth the cost. My husband and I had never flown 'first class' before and thought on this almost 9 hour flight we would give it a try. Wow! Seat comfort was fantastic. Service was wonderful. Food was great. We were made to feel like royalty."
Pros: "Darim made my flight much more enjoyable and comfortable. Great flight attendant."
Cons: "I paid extra to select my seat earlier but my headset slot was not working and more than half the channels were not working anyways."
Pros: "We were delayed while in the plane. The steward decided to give drinks and snacks on the house which in the end lightened the atmosphere. It did make it late for the Oilers play-off game which was likely very important to many of the business men on the flight."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to get their entertainment app to work."
Pros: "Boarded easily, took off and landed early. What's not to like?"
Cons: "Was offered beverage once, water once. Flight was 4.25 hours long. Would have liked first service to offer snacks besides cookie-- usually ask if you want food for purchase."
Cons: "At WestJet, Canadian PR are not eligible for on-line check in. WestJet make Canada PR travel on WestJet so hard. Air Canada, United all can do online check in for Canada PRs. Don't know why WestJet is so stupid and ridiculous... In flight, no flight map is available. So out-of-date."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Very attentive and witty. One flight attendant in particular went out of her way to take my 4 year for a walk to get snacks to give her something else to do. We also boarded the plane first as we had young kids which gave us ample time to settle our carry-on luggage and the kids before the rush of other travelers."
Cons: "Not enough legroom in coach for families dealing with young kids where these kids invariably want to be in your lap and then ppl in front of you want to recline.....it is just uncomfortable. The other thing is that my trip to Barbados did not have the in seat TV and try as I might to download the plug in to my Surface so that I could watch from their Westjet connect it would not work so that made it difficult to help with passing the time with my kids. I am also a strong advocate for a decent meal on any flight more than 3 hours. I should not have to purchase meals after spending all that money on a plane ticket."
Pros: "They upgraded me to plus after my luggage was damaged on my 7 hour flight. If you can upgrade to plus do it!!"
Cons: "It was a great flight"
Cons: "Disappointing when the earphone jack does not provide a good connection"
