My reservation is GWUSIC and I was not able to fly on Jan 10th. I was not able to change my ticket online nor cancel it, the website would redirect me to a "not found" page after I select the filght I wanted. I tried to reach your costumer services for a week before my flight via emails and phone calls, spend way more than 10hrs on hold without any result. I booked via Westjet directly to be sure I would not get this kind of issue, was a mistake apparently. I finally got a hold of someone on Jan 9th after many attempts, no apologies from the costumer service nor consideration, the ticket I needed to fly on Jan 15th went from 160CAD to 670CAD that night and I was told I should pay the difference more than 500CAD. I was also told I should have by the ticket on Jan 15th when I saw it despite I could not cancel mine online... I now have to fly the 16th and not the 15th, which adds hotel fees and 1 days of travelling plus the risk of not being able to go home to Calgary because of COVID restrictions that may occur in between. I find disrespectful and unconsiderate the way I was treated despite I tried all what I could to reach you out in due time to fly the 15th. I did my share as a client and tried reach out way ahead of time when prices where reasonable, I received no call back nor emails though I provided everytime my email, even tried different one, and no emails in the spam, just a malfunctioning webpage apparently. I have proof of all that, screenshot and video if you need to help you improve the service. Truly disappointed in your costumer service who did not consider the situation, did not offer to cover the change fees despite it was because of Westjet malfunctioning services that I could not do my change on time! I could understand the stress and wait time due to the pandemic situation, but not at all cost, this is not good practice from such an initial good company.
Delayed because of late incoming , but once loaded, was a great flight.
Pros: "The crew were excellent. The seat was not very comfortable - it had a very firm seat cushion. The flight time was about 5 hours so it was OK. I adjusted to the feel of the chair. We had seats next to an exit door so we had more leg room which was nice."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable. The seat cushion was quite firm. I sat for 15 hours on a Qantas seat which was quite a bit more comfortable. There was no onboard entertainment unless you had a cell phone and could download the West Jet app. I was spoiled by my flight with Qantas from Vancouver to Sydney. They had touch screens on the backs of the seats so you could choose movies, radio, games, and flight info and the seats were much more comfortable."
Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable."

Cons: "Can’t think of anything!"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Professional."
Cons: "Flight was three hours late (not because of weather). Pilots left seatbelt sign on during whole flight even though there was minimal turbulence."
Pros: "Maybe not Westjets fault but one of the affiliated companies. Loading up for Cranbrook, I could over hear the baggage loaders day, “we’re overweight”. Next thing you know, 4 people are short their luggage at the final destination. Takes one day out of my vacation."
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: "Crew was efficient and friendly. Everything went well."
Cons: "Crying baby on board ..."
Cons: "Screens were broken - no on board movies"
Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."
Pros: "Had seats in row six -- plus there was room for both our carry-ons!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed taking off from Winnipeg 90 minutes with no explanation given. Made us late getting to Saskatoon and missed our daughter's scheduled ride to pick up our two cars as a result. Had to pay an extra two hours parking at airport, etc etc etc."
Pros: "On time and friendly! This was my first experience with West Jet. If the opportunity comes along...I will gladly travel with them again."
Pros: "The luggage was taken good care of"
Cons: "There wasn’t any complimentary gluten free snacks :3"
Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."

Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "Not a bad flight no incidences"
Cons: "Limited seating at the gate, restaurant backs up to the gate, flight was 40 minutes late. Seemed to be disorganized boarding."
Pros: "WestJet is by far the friendliest and most professional airline"
Pros: "very nice staff. comfortable seats"
Cons: "no ice for drinks. would have preferred in flight entertainment on seat backs"
Pros: "It was a quiet flight. Quick loading. Got to sit with my friends."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Less leg space, price of bags to high, too many people bring on over-sized carry on taking up all the overhead bins. No entertainment options for flight"
Pros: "Too much fog so plane could not land. Had to rebook out of Toronto for the late afternoon. Crew was very accommodating with my reschedule."
Cons: "Nothing to like. Never got on the plane. Not Westjet’s fault. They can’t control tye weather."

Pros: "I liked the timeliness of boarding."

Pros: "Liked the convenience of flying so close from home the crew was amazing dealing with a difficult lady. And the girl I sat beside is now my friend. Woohoo"
Pros: "Staff are always fun and efficient, but the drinks came very late. In Asia, even if the flight is only 1 hour, they have the time to serve a lunch and clean up....."
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."
Cons: "Not any bodys fault the crew were trying to be supportive. multiple babys all around the area beside accros and a few rows down. maybe set them all to teh back would be better"
Cons: "The reasons that I book with Westjet are that the attendants joke with each other, appear to really enjoy their jobs, and provide over the top customer service. On this flight no one was jovial or smiling, the garbage sat on our trays for the majority of the flight. The attendants spoke to each other more than the passengers. Very disappointing!"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Internet was faulty"
Pros: "Extra leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn’t work. Food was non descriptive. Service was spotty and far from attentive"
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Flight delayed departing but pilot made up the time ."
Pros: "that the pilot was good, the staff witty but not really helpful."
Cons: "the airline staff don't seem to care about the passenger. I needed help because I can't walk far. We had to get our own wheelchair and my son had to ask for a gate pass so that he could take me down to the gate as the airline staff didn't seem to want to take me there. Going through security was okay but not much else was. Was glad to arrive in Kamloops and get to my family."
Pros: "Everything was fine. The gate agents were very cordial. We took off a few minutes early and arrived early."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "I really appreciated the leg room that we had on all our flights. The seating was most comfortable. Staff most friendly."

Pros: "You pay for what you get. WestJet staff are always wonderful. The fligh is a flight."
Cons: "Was't a problem with WestJet. However if ever departing from Vancouver don't rely on the wait times provided in the airport. Give yourself ab addition 30 mins extra."
Pros: "Crew were all very welcoming and polite"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were pretty pricey."
Pros: "New plane and friendly service."
Cons: "More leg room would be appreciated."
Pros: "Overall everything"
