I don’t find the seats all that comfortable compared to some airlines.
Pros: "Quick flight. Quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "Snacks are kinda lame."
Pros: "All good and short flight"
Pros: "The crew members were extremely kind and caring"
Cons: "Like to have some reading materials"
Pros: "In flight live tv."
Cons: "Getting to the gate quicker after landing."
Cons: "Our trip got completely rerouted - we are still in Edmonton and expected to be with family in Regina a couple of hours ago. :((("
Cons: "We never made it to our holiday destination. There were a handful of going to BDA from Pearson. Your inbound flight was late. Would it have killed you to hold it for 5 mins?"
Pros: "West Jet was well organized and very professional in helping travellers on a full aircraft reach Hobolulu. I was particularly impressed by the polite calm and efficient cabin staff. Will use this airline again."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Leaving Montreal"
Pros: "Very low ticket prices, everything went smoothly (no delays), lots of leg room!"
Pros: "left on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are worn out"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and worked to get us boarded quickly because it was cold outside on the tarmac. The flight was smooth with a good landing."
Cons: "WestJet’s WiFi, to allow passengers to connect to the WestJet entertainment app, was not available on this flight which was a surprise. I don’t always enjoy flying and have some anxiety, so entertainment like movies or shows helps get me through flights. This flight was harder because I didn’t know that option wouldn’t be available."
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: "We were on a Boeing 737-800 which had lots of legroom in economy seats. Great plane, and the pilot made up time on our flight. Arrived early. Crew was great."
Cons: "One flight attendant came through the cabin at the beginning of the flight with the offer to purchase food and that was that. Six and a half hours we got pretzels or cookies."
Pros: "Took way way to long"
Pros: "Crew was funny."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 times, ended up being a 4 hour delay after a delay on our first flight already. No help at terminals until just before flights. Employees seemed spread thin. Need more help."
Pros: "Great staff and helpful with checking bags."
Pros: "Baggage didn't get lost."
Cons: "Boarding gate attendant was rude. Announced boarding for infants, then got annoyed when me and my wife went up. Queue had formed for general boarding, she wanted to board that line first...for whatever reason. Onboard flight attendants were rude, I stood in the galley for 30 seconds to wait for my wife to change our baby in the washroom and was asked to move back to the cabin. Flight attendants were just eating their food back there, not working at the time."
Pros: "good value for money. Staff were helpful"
Cons: "A direct route from St John's to London."
Pros: "We upgraded our return flight to Plus. The extra space is great."
Cons: "Compared to our flight in, this was lacking a bit. We were only offered beverages one time, the flight attendants didn’t come to clear our waste. They were just sitting at the front in their seats and one was playing sudoku through a lot of the flight. If we hadn’t had such a great experience on the flight in, we may not have noticed the difference but this time it was noticably less attentive."
Pros: "On time. Efficient. No frills but perfectly fine!"
Cons: "Economy too cramped."
Pros: "Always friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "The staff are very professional and friendly."
Pros: "The flight attendants are awesome! We were traveling with our 6 month old daughter, and the flight attendants went out of their way to make sure we had a personal safety demo for our daughter, and made sure we had everything we needed. They even held her while I went to the bathroom! Amazing customer service!!"
Cons: "No entertainment-but I think this is being phased out of most planes now."
Pros: "Everything went well with the flight. There were some technical difficulties but nothing that was within West Jet's control."
Cons: "There was one crew member that was being really passive aggressive with a mom behind us who was just trying to keep her kids quite and happy. The other crew members were sympathizing with the mom, but this one woman was just being stubborn for what seemed like no reason. If the other crew members say something is ok, I see no reason why she had to be difficult other than being spiteful."
Cons: "Lots of delays on both flights. Expensive in flight meal options. Even in flight entertainment was with payment only."
Cons: "Staff was rude and lazy."
Pros: "Explained why flight was delayed Helped a young lady find her cell phone"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Some crew members seemed aggressive while walking through the aslie Food was dry for the price"
Pros: "Selection of entertainment good."
Cons: "Last minute seat changes at loading time. Seats must have been randomly selected because couples previously seated together and on the same locator number were now separated. Many of the couples and family members were left to work with other travellers who were facing the same situation. Families with children?"
Pros: "Due to a baggage check-in snafu, we were very late to arrive at our gate. But we made it! And the staff were still very kind to us even though we arrived so late and they didn't know why. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever been on, and the snack and beverage service was just fine - I loved that cookies were an option and not just pretzels. Overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "The little snacks we had"
Cons: "Losing my luggage"
Cons: "Snack was very minimal with no selection or option to purchase more."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "The West Jet reps everywhere were calm, cool, and friendly. I thought they were terrific. In Edmonton, the women from West Jet did their best to help and keep the waiting disgruntled passengers informed. In Kelowna, when I discovered my luggage was still in Calgary, the West Jet rep was cheerful and helpful. How could I possibly be annoyed?"
Cons: "Wrong. I ended up in Kelowna."
Pros: "Basics of chips or pretzels as one food offering"
Pros: "I arrived early to insure that I didn't run into the same troubles as my previous flight when I missed my flight through no fault of my own. This flight was much better organized and went without any issues."
Cons: "I like the concept of boarding a plane by zone however if Westjet doesn't enforce it then the zone loading is nothing but theory. Time to put it into practice Westjet."
Pros: "Great atmosphere... entertaining staff, very pleasant."
Pros: "Friendliness of customer service (phone), gate attendant and flight crew. I travelled with a pet and their organization is seamless! Well done... again!"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
Pros: "Humor of the flight attendants #Joeneedsaraise"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "Always on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Better snacks like porter"
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."
Pros: "Crew wonderful, cheery and helpful"
Pros: "American Airlines stated that a checked in bag would arrive at final destination however after leaving the customs area I confirmed this with a Wesjtet agent and this was not the case. Westjet helped to contact an AA representative and, have the bag passed through so as not to delay the tight connection. Very very impressed with this assistance and thankful. The bag arrived home when I did."
Cons: "Toronto Airport has an extremely slow and packed customs line.. Flight was almost missed due to this as well as long distance to gate."
Cons: "Crew dealt with a rather large passenger who wanted to upgrade to a larger seat. He had done so before on westjet but was told the option wasnt available once he had boarded. I thought the flight attendant crew chief who deal with him was rude and did not display any creative thinking to addtess this very uncomfortable passengers request."
