Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "No one would get a wheelchair to get to cart that was on different floor. Driver didn't volunteer to carry bags to cart."

Pros: "Everything about the flight was fine except the delay waiting for the new crew."
Cons: "The 90 minute delay taking off. The difficulty getting WestJet Connect entertainment software to work with my laptop. I finally gave up & watched tv on my phone."

Pros: "it was on time"

Pros: "Talia is an excellent stewardess—She takes good care of people"

Pros: "WestJet’s checkin online system is very quick, which save a lot of time. It’s so much better than air Canada in any aspects"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in the plane"

Pros: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"
Cons: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"

Cons: "Woman in seat beside should have taken 2 seats"

Pros: "New plane was nice."
Cons: "Snacks offered"

Cons: "The wifi is paid.. no TVs"

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."

Cons: "No tv in back rowa"

Cons: "There was not enough room for my carryon for some reason and so I had to sit with my knees up and feet on my bag. Not the worst but there should be enough carry on space for everyone."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Seat cushion was horrible and I paid for plus."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"

Pros: "Staff and aervice was great! No complaint!"
Cons: "We had to put our carry on bags a little far away from our seats"

Pros: "I just love WestJet"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "I traveled from Vancouver to Edmonton today on WS 320 and one of my luggage was delayed. I had to wait through many phone call queues to get in contact with an agent and none of them were very useful. I was informed that my baggage would arrive in Edmonton at 5pm and be contacted to arrange delivery options but I had not heard anything from them and it is already past 8pm. I had to stay at home to wait for the phone call which resulted me in canceling my evening plans. The luggage contains frozen home made goods and various food items I brought back from my recent trip to Taiwan. With the food not being in a freezer for over 12 hours at this point they've likely all gone bad. I am extremely displeased with the bagging service especially when I had PAID to get my bags checked. I was told that packing food in checked bags comes with a risk and is a game but everything in life is a risk and I find that excuse from an agent very unacceptable. I am also very upset that WestJet does not offer compensation for food damages because the foods in my luggage are definitely worth over $200 and some are not obtainable in Canada."

Pros: "Liked that boarding was easy and fast."
Cons: "That the plane didn’t have TVs on all the headseats"

Pros: "It was overall ok , but over all disappointing that west jest became such a budget airline."
Cons: "I’m disappointed that west jet became such a budget airline, it used to be my favourite. Now there’s no monitors, you got to use up your own power from devices. I prefer to save my battery when travelling."

Pros: "Staff were so friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Flight was good, crew was courteous and boarded on time. Cabin space was adequate and the entertainment provided through WestJet’s app is very good."

Pros: "My brother had a heart attack and I was traveling out Edmonton to be within and his family. It’s a stressful time and I meant to book for Nov 7 but booked Nov 9 by accident. The person at the checkin desk was wonderful. Changed my booking and checked my bag without any charge. It made a very stressful situation so much better, I really appreciate the staff who went out of her way to help me."

Pros: "convenience and smooth ride"

Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"

Pros: "The reliable, friendly crew"

Pros: "I upgraded and that was definitely worth it."

Cons: "Not one complaint"

Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"

Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight left & arrived on time."

Pros: "Food, attendants, comfort, entertainment"
Cons: "Manual boarding and missing one of my luggage"

Cons: "Embarked late. Sat on runway for 30 minutes waiting to disembark. Missed ride to Eugene Or. Not happy."

Cons: "Air Canada needs to step up their game and get better in seat technology."

Pros: "The movie selection was very good."

Even though we told at checkout that it was because of the Christmas volume online, still had to pay Airport (extra) price to check-in baggage. They said I could perhaps get the penalty fee returned if I called in. Told her it's not worth 2 hours on a paid long distance call to get $20 back."
