Cons: "More than an hour late departing. Added to that it was almost an hour before luggage appeared. Not West Jet’s fault but it made us even later resulting in some of our long drive of our drive to Grand Canyon being in the dark."
Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."
Cons: "Getting from one flight to the other was a major hassle. How many times do they have to check your boarding pass?"
Cons: "We landed in Phoenix and spent over an hour on the runway, when we did finally get a gate it didn’t work. The delays caused me to miss my ground transportation."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "I could not get through to westjet for days due to weather. Then when they called, they hung up on me as connected....back to another hour wait. Then an email. Then 5 days later to hear that despite all of their chaos there would be no changes."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled."
Pros: "No ability to change dates of flight."
Cons: "Paying a charge to change flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "We left Calgary just as the snow started. What great timing! The flight was smooth, the service and food were excellent. We always have a good trip with WestJet, especially thanks to all the great staff on the ground and on-board."
Pros: "Great flight! Great service and way more room than air canada! And ACTUALLY on time!"
Pros: "No delays flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Prices of flights going to Calgary Canada"
Cons: "Prices did not include specific seat.. that was an additional price to pick a seat"
Pros: "More leg room in seat than expected."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Pros: "pleasant staff"
Cons: "no record of pre-purchased meal internet cost $10 and was very very slow-unusable zero seating in Westjet gates (PHX)"
Cons: "First flight on WestJet in 3 Years. Didn’t like not knowing I needed a tablet or laptop and an app to watch tv. Offered a drink and asked for water. Received about 2 ounces. Every body around me ordered soft drinks and got a 10 ounce can"
Cons: "Paid extra for preferred seat and had to give it up and sit in the middle seat."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in the plane for 4 hours when 20 minutes into the delay the flight attendants knew they weren't going to be able to fly with us, and instead of cancelling the flight 20 minutes into the delay we sat on the plane for 4 hours while the crew knew we were not going to take off. There were a handful of infants and children (my 10 month old nephew included) and for the crew to keep the passengers on the plane for 4 hours when they knew the flight was going to be cancelled is unacceptable."
Pros: "Efficient, cost effective and chill flight process"
Cons: "Nothing really, even the coffee was delicias."
Pros: "The flight was good but it was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The hour delay was an incomvience."
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Phoenix was even worse than Air Canada. No food available to purchase. Cramped seating. Entertainment system was difficult to navigate...the buttons didn't work half the time, the movies were already playing and all the "bad" words were edited out which changed the entire movie. Waste of time. Would not fly WestJet again based on this experience. And what's the point of checking in online when you're called to verify id again at the check in counter."
Cons: "Warmest flight I was ever on. Entertainment system didn’t work."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight Late by Over 1 Hour due to deicing which they should have built into their boarding time schedule and two passenger did not show up causing further delays."
Pros: "The information given by the pilot overhead was timely and well delivered. The flight was smooth and we arrived safely."
Cons: "We sat for 4 hours on the runway. Aside from 1 crew member, they were impersonal, rude, and unaccomodating. They pilot spoke overhead very pleasantly and apologetically and encouraged walking around and using the restroom but they crew gave everyone a hard time. There was no offer of complementary food service or compensation for anyone despite being on the plane for double the amount of time planned. Finally, the in flight entertainment worked for maybe half hour of the actual flight with no explanation or acknowledgement."
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Over crowded seating. Over head music that you had to talk over. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "Got away a little late (full flight and de-icing) but still managed to get in to Phoenix well ahead of the scheduled arrival time."
Cons: "Lots of delays on different flights for members of our party flying from various points in US to Calgary and on returns. Several folks had damage to their luggage, including wheels torn off of baggage and a cracked ski helmet."
Pros: "WestJet was Great again.... Boarded promptly, and a smooth flight, with friendly staff"
Pros: "Bravo for being such amazing human beings. Much obliged for a wonderful flight. Merry Christmas"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Had an aisle seat but was disturbed 4 times throughout the flight. Not impressed"
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "Was very windy when leaving Hamilton but the captain handled the flight so smoothly that I was able to sleep through most of it!"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding from the minute we arrived in Hamilton till we got to Edmonton. So impressed with the customer service."
Pros: "The pleasantness of the crew. West Jet usually has one of the friendliest staff, in my experience."
Cons: "1st time around, I declined snacks. 2nd time around, I had my tray table down and I wasn’t asked or offered a snack. I could have asked, and my fellow passengers beside me offered to ask when she came back with his drink but I didn’t want to bother. I don’t think she would have refused but I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t asked."
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."
Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."
Cons: "Arriving at Orlando, Real confusing and I'm not really old yet. Good thing we had people to meet us, I had no idea where to go."
Pros: "food, flight crew, leg room"
Cons: "crying babies"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Pros: "the connection time in Calgary was short, so overall the trip was verily quick. Generally, the flight was good, clean plane, good services."
Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Pros: "Not often do you feel like you really "welcomed aboard." This was not the case on our flights to and from Calgary. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. That was refreshing. I did like the Westjet Connect feature. You don't have a TV screen in the back of each seat. You download the app and you get to watch TV, Movies, News all on your own device for free. A nice plus is that you can change all your devices with USB power port at each seats you never run out of a charge."
Cons: "The only thing that I did dislike was on the return we flew a 737-600 which did not leg room like the 737-800 we flew on first. The under seat storage is skimpy in the middle seat where an entertainment server is located"
Pros: "Liked most but don't understand why a family of 3 was separated. Bought tickets together."
Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
Pros: "It was a little bit delayed but after the airplane arrived everything was very fast."
Cons: "I don't have any problem about the west jet, I know that some delays is complete normal because the weather or air traffic."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, friendly and always smiling. I prefer an aisle seat, and they took much more care not to bump you than I've experienced on other flights. Left on time, arrived early. One of the few flights I've been on with no issues."
Cons: "Seriously who fly's international without baggage? BS on paying fees for a checked bag for an INTERNATIONAL flight - but everyone does that money grab. Seats are not made for someone with any height - I'm 6', and the seats were uncomfortably positioned for my back - and way too low to support my head. They supposedly have an app to send you alerts about your flight - doesn't work - re-installed twice, and got the same can't connect message on different days (my phone was on a gig network wifi)."
