I turned down a faster and cheaper flight because it was going to charge me for checked bags. It was only when I got to the airport that I was notified of the checked bag fee (which was hefty). This was never listed when I purchased these tickets, and I would not have bought from you if I had know this was your plan. I am expecting a refund for what I paid for the two checked bags round trip. If not, I will make it my life's hobby to let everyone know about your companies business practices.

I got hit with a surprise $100+ baggage fee at check-in. Boarding started late, then they just had us go in a cramped, hot room before actually boarding. Flight took off about 45 minutes late.

2 hour delay with very little communication as to why. Plane was way too big for a short domestic flight (boarding and departure took longer than the flight itself). Parked at far end of the airport so 15+ mins walk to arrivals. All around one of the worst flight experiences I’ve had in years!

Hassle free and easy. Since our airport arrival was ddlayed by rush hour traffic, the check jn process was made easier by the Air Transit attendant's assistance to be processed through fast track security clearance.

When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay

Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet

Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well.

1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer.

I paid extra (another surprise) to select my seat ahead of time. Being a larger guy, I selected a window seat. I didn't realize until we were boarding the plane that they stuck me in a middle seat, and being the first flight was delayed I did not have time to remedy the problem before the connecting flight. The entertainment screen also froze up, but at least one of the crew members was quick to let me know to just restart it.

The crew were very friendly, sweet and accommodating. I had a seat by the exit which I luckily didn't have to pay extra for and the leg room was ample and really helpful on a long flight. The meal was pretty good, but I really wished airlines would stop wasting so much plastic - I think there should be a way we can support the environment better when flying.

I didn't realize Air Transat was a bare-bones airline (not that my flight was cheap in cost) - we didn't have pillows or blankets for the flight (10 hours) and had to pay for them! Seems like that should be standard on a long haul flight. The seats are very narrow with poor back support, and my back started to hurt 5 hours in. Many people were standing in the aisles as it was so uncomfortable. I was very cold throughout the flight, which was another uncomfortable aspect. One of the bathrooms was out of order which resulted in everyone using the same one - you can imagine how smelly and messy it got.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in CAD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
