Airline reviews

Pros: "Service was good, frequent drinks and snacks, nice little deli platter was unexpected and very delicious!"

Pros: "You constantly got food and drinks served, a big contrast to the other airlines who don't even serve complimentary food on 5 hour trips. We didn't expect to get food on this 2 hour flight so we had breakfast beforehand. We were pleasantly surprised!"

Cons: "The HS was I bit cramped!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Provided sandwich and cookie during flight."
Cons: "Minor item: Didn't provide hav charger in seats but for short flights not a big issue"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "From the coffee and cookies while waiting to board to the freshly baked items given while receiving food service, this is great customer service. Not to mention the competitively priced airfare and not having to pay an extra fee for checked bags, this airline can't be beat. I would definitely fly it again and suggest it to anyone if they're looking to fly in northern Canada."

Pros: "Great staff, service, price."
Cons: "Only negative was the flight left 10-15 minutes late. Not sure if it was their fault or air control. Would definitely book with them again though."

Pros: "Excellent airfare, super easy online check-in, friendly crew, comfortable plane, very pleasant flight."
Cons: "Flight frequency. I wish there were more flights between YVR and YLW."

Pros: "The staff and Crew were amazing! Very friendly and helpful, no frills, just excellent service!"

Pros: "Overall not much, other than the staff was nice!"
Cons: "Flight was suppose to be delayed two hours, so got to the airport hour before flight was suppose to leave at 3:45 but delayed till 5:45 so waiting in airport all day. Flight didn’t actually leave until 6:30-6:45. Which made pick up arrangements at destination cost me more money. I usually Kayak often and want to continue using it."

Pros: "I liked it was a small plane. Short flight so no food or entertainment provided, other than the kid that had never flown before, sitting behind me."
Cons: "It was Delayed by 40 mins but I did get on it, so that's a bonus."

Pros: "I appreciate that Kayaks gives an honest and clear overview of all prices. I always use kayak to book my flight. They can't be beat."

Pros: "Fun quirky airline with 19 seat Beechcraft"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "First time flying a turboprop. Personnel were excellent and polite and overall experience was great."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Speed of travel too Calgary was quick and fast"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew were super great I hit my head on a over head bun the stuff were vary caring asked how I felt and will take west jet again in future travels"
Cons: "Well noise was due too the plane but I got over it quick light crew were awesome was vary clean still had the new plane small intact keep up the great work west jet"

Pros: "Full refund for cancelled flight"
Cons: "Frustrating but it’s a weather thing"

Pros: "The lady was calm at the gate, explaining that we wouldn’t be leaving and trying to help everyone flipping out. 1. Flight was delayed 2. More delayed, meaning we miss connections in Calgary 3. Canceled"
Cons: "While my flight was to Abbotsford, my final destination was to the US (Seattle). Canceling the flight meant I miss my 4 hour ride home from Abbotsford. When asking if I could change my final destination, only destinations in Canada would be allowed. I spent a fortune getting flights, planning rides, to make it home by the 26th and tend to responsibilities by the 27th. I realize weather delayed the flight, but once in Calgary, it would have been nice for WestJet to even scope the opportunity to get me home. #StrandedinCanada"

Pros: "On time, everyone very courteous"

Pros: "Best airline, period"

Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Could not hear the Pilot. Emergency Exit instructions said too fast"

Pros: "Great no hassle way to get to Campbell River from Vancouver."

Pros: "Ontime flight, efficient check-in. Reasonable price for a 15 minute puddle jump."

Pros: "Wasn’t anything to like didn’t get on the flight thxs to yall"

Pros: "Courteous and helpful staff. Check in last was helpful in ensuring I knew certain details for future flights."
Cons: "No earplugs on loud plane"

Pros: "Airlin staff were great."
Cons: "Plane was 30+ minutes late. Announcer at Port Hardy Airport was unintelligible."

Cons: "They took us out to the plane then made us wait for several minutes in the rain before they would let us board the aircraft."

Cons: "Plane was an hour late. My golf bag was left behind. Check in process was too long because the person in front of me had a reservation but was not on the manifest and one of two computers was down."

Pros: "I like it very much over-all. When do you have seat sales?"

Cons: "More than one hour delay Unfriendly check-in"

Pros: "great price, direct flight, free checked bag, snacks on the flight, nice crew... this carrier is better than the competition in every single way except 1"
Cons: "Plane ride was a bit like a wooden rollercoaster, but the ol' boat held together. Thus the one thing I "dislike" is the age of the fleet."

Pros: "when you enter Canada and then travel through YVR for another flight it is a total waste. Not the fault of the airline but the way they do things with security"

Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"

Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Did not serve food."

Pros: "Casual attitude."
Cons: "better food option than a few dusty pretzels and a thimble of water."

Pros: "All good."

Pros: "Gavin at check in was so great!! Amazing and professional!! Great clear concise announcements!"

Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "I wish there were more food options"

Pros: "price efficiency"
Cons: "gate change last minute"

Cons: "Way too cramped. Only 1 washroom."

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."

Cons: "Booked our seats 24 hours in advance and could not get seats together. Airline expects us to pay extra for reasonable expectations as that"

Pros: "The manager who finally helped me was friendly and listened the entire time even when I was angry. She was concerned and helped me the best she could. The stewards are always friendly"
Cons: "There was only one agent on to check tickets. I was in line for 45 minutes and when I got to her, she just said over and over, there is nothing I can do, your flight time was just cut off. I would have to wait until the flight the next day. Even though I had no bags and there was still 35 minutes before take off. I also told her I knew I would be late and so spoke to someone from Westjet he night before. She smiled like I was lying to her. Lines should not be so black and white. If she would have just processed my ticket I would have had 35 minutes to get to my gate instead of 10. When you are flying with half full planes there should really be better ways to manage customer service."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, uneventful which for a plane ride is great"
Cons: "Nothing really, plane was smaller than expected with limited overhead space but everything was able to fit in the bin"

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

Pros: "Haven't taken it yet"
Cons: "Well I'm not on the plane yet cause you left.me stuck in Vancouver"

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

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

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Crew were wonderful."
Cons: "There was no westjet connect on the flight. Which is fine for a short flight, except that before west jet got rid of their TVs this flight had entertainment."

Cons: "Was delayed 3 times"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to start at 10:20, but was delayed for at least 30 with no updates. In fact, they were still showing the flight as leaving on time up until the last second, which is not ok. Gotta keep the passengers updated folks!"

Pros: "Our flight from Australia was delayed, resulting in our missing our connecting Westjet flight. Not only did Westjet get us on the next available flight, but the staff were friendly and very helpful. They made it seem like it was no problem at all, even though we were on the cheapest fare."

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

Pros: "Crew was courteous and the plane was not packed like the previous one, so it was good there was room to stretch out the legs."
Cons: "Having to board the plane walking outside.It was raining and there were puddles everywhere. Flight was delayed"

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"

Pros: "The breezy, confident preflight announcements of the crew, including (from the Captain) "We are flying into Kelowna today, where the weather is always awesome even though it is a bit overcast and 5 degrees C..." and from the flight attendant on landing, "We have arrived in Kelowna. If you live here--Lucky You! You are almost home! And if you don't live here, welcome to the Okanagan! We hope you enjoy your stay." I was only disappointed that the sentence including 'lucky you' was not included in the French translation. C'est d'hommage..."

Cons: "Baggage delay at vancuvour and as well as in calgary."

Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"

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

I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way.
