Cons: "Will never fly with WestJet again regardless of price."
Cons: "The plane was so cold that despite wearing jeans, a shirt, a sweatshirt and a jacket I was barely comfortable. Explanation from crew? Well, it was very hot in Phoenix so we had the AC jacked up. But at 35,000 feet that's no longer a problem, right? Neither is is necessary in 68-degree F Calgary."
Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"
Pros: "Arrived earlier than expected despite a later departure."
Pros: "Friendly staff; A relatively painless check-in and boarding procedure; Flight arrived a bit earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "No power outlet at seat on 4+ hour flight meant dead phone on arrival when used for in-flight entertainment; Now have to pay extra for basic seat selection even after check-in opens at 24-hours prior to departure (I opted not to pay, and got literally the worst seat on the plane... back row, middle seat by the lavatory); Even the for-purchase snacks taste terrible."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Pilot definitely had his passengers in mind. Landing in windy Regina was perfect"
Cons: "The cabin person upon entering sucked a lemon apparently"
Pros: "for that price I'll fly west jet every time"
Cons: "some water or something was falling from the ceiling on my brother in the window seat on take off at the back of the plane was pretty gross"
Pros: "Good movies...uuneventful flight and on time. Good service and funny steward."
Cons: "The ground crew in Calgary were slow getting boarding ramp onto aircraft. Little leg room in coach in rear seats."
Pros: "Ease of booking ,cost,dir eat flight,great departure times"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized a bit,seats a bit cramped. Entertainment not the best choices for seniors eg have some TCM choices."
Pros: "Was a good flight. No troubles or delays"
Cons: "Baggage claim was down for a bit, had to wait about 29 min. Not the airlines fault"
Pros: "I received great service and the flights were on time."
Pros: "Good legroom compared to other carriers"
Cons: "Almost 1 hour late leaving. No westjet connect, so no entertainment."
Pros: "Fairly standard flight. By checking in early was able to change seat closer to front."
Cons: "With baggage fees now in place, people are really over doing the carry-on & oversize bags aren't being caught by the airline."
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus - it was great."
Cons: "Too bad we have to pay extra for Plus to get a reasonable amount of room."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wheel chair services was horrible. 8 passengers needed assistance and there were 2 assistants to aid them. This took over two hours as they attended to passengers with connecting flights first. It was frustrating waiting 2hrs after the flight landed to collect luggage and leave airport."
Cons: "Crew was not the usual happy Westjet staff.Grumpy flight attendants.I don't think any of them ever cracked a smile for the entire flight."
Pros: "Boarding was Ok Full plane, which makes a difference"
Cons: "Was there an entertainment progress? One trip for rood and drinks. Delay in boarding, which the crew made up."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Was boarding at C70 but only saw signs for 71 and C73. Asked Westjet staff where we were boarding and they told me (and others) that even though we were booked to take off from C70 we’d be departing from the gate labeled C73 and also labeled for a flight to Regina. Still got to Hamilton though."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and funny"
Cons: "Everything was up to my standard"
Cons: "It did not happen. Being transfered to air canada in Toronto was a night mare"
Pros: "I enjoyed the WestJet app for movies. Really great for me and my daughter. Also the McDonald’s coffee ✅"
Pros: "The staff were nice enough on the plane"
Cons: "They said we were pre boarding so we went and stood in line with our 2 year old. Finally after 15 minutes they actually started letting the line through when they could have just waited 15 minutes to even announce the pre-boarding line. Then we boarded the plane and it was late and another 30 minutes waiting to fly. There was no TVs.. and whatever, we brought our iPad We got to Edmonton and our car seat was quite damaged. West jet couldn’t give us anywhere near the car seat we have and not one that fits in my car."
Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Left late but arrived on time!,"
Cons: "We sat across an aisle150 feet from the boarding gate and never heard any pre-boarding announcements. There is too much carry-on luggage, coats and backpacks in the overhead bins. No room left if boarding near the end."
Pros: "Wonderful service!"
Pros: "Everything went according to plan - left on time, arrived early, luggage arrived. What more can you ask? :)"
Pros: "Everyone was understanding that the delay was outside of the crew’s control."
Cons: "The long delay. Scheduled to arrive at 9:30 pm but got in at 1:30 am"
Pros: "Seat was great"
Cons: "Snacks could been better"
Pros: "Direct flights...friendly staff...well kept aircraft..."
Cons: "Long wait to board due to people checking in on line and having to show passports at the last moment...delaying boarding for everyone else..."
Pros: "The crew, as always, was warm, welcoming and very attentive from check-in to the plane. I also enjoyed the snacks that were served."
Pros: "The plane was less busy so many people had an empty seat next to them. It was great for leg room and I slept the whole flight!"
Pros: "on time, smooth flight"
Pros: "As easy as it should have been and great price"
Pros: "JP the flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process Too warm"
Pros: "The flight and crew were great, great flight. Arrived earlier then stated. I still enjoy flying in and out of Hamilton. Great airport. If I can book West jet again, I will, great airline. Took some great pictures from the aircraft. Thank you !!!!"
Cons: "Security, too much, even when we arrived, customs twice."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew was excellent, as well as professional."
Cons: "Seats were OK."
Pros: "Great experience...."
Cons: "There were wait times...too long"
Pros: "Excellent. Again staff was very courteous and caring. Smooth comfortable flight all the way."
Pros: "Main stewardess was very pleasant. Not full flight so I moved back and had a seat to myself."
Pros: "Charisma and fun is the name of the game! Good work WJ"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that we had to continue to show our travel documents when asked to check in on the app. Make me scan my passport so there is an image on your server. You can verify that way or make everyone check onto a kiosk. Which you had not enough of."
Pros: "Comfortable seat with lots of leg room"
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: "I flew through the air in a metal container across the country in the time it would have taken me to drive 400 km, so that's pretty neat."
Cons: "Provide complimentary movies West Jet. Parading around tablets to rent for $6 is a bad look."
Cons: "I was able to download the WestJet Connect app on my phone which gives you access to tv shows and movies to watch on your own device during the flight. The app was free and easy to use and there was a decent selection. However, the wifi on board is not free so even though you could watch the tv show/movie - the sound did not work unless you paid for it. There are many other airlines that offers everything for free - it would have been a more pleasant if we were able to actually utilize the service."
Pros: "Great crew, West jet connect worked fabulously"
Cons: "Cramped space and airplane food"
Pros: "We got some extra help in the airport :). Thanx"
Cons: "They didn't let us know ahead of time and there wouldn't be televisions. If you hadn't downloaded the WestJet app you couldn't watch TV. You had to rent a tablet for seven dollars or buy an Internet package to download the app. That's fine just frustrating"
