Pros: "Everything!!! I loved!"
Pros: "This portion of the flight went smoothly"
Pros: "Seats pretty small and the guy next to me came over the dividing line the whole trip."
Cons: "Wasn't quite sure where to leave my checked baggage (that became checked when it was a full flight & asked for volunteers to check baggage for free to free up space in the cabin. They said by the elevator, but I did not want to leave my bag unattended."
Pros: "Lacking social skills ! One on the flight attendants had numerous holes in her sweater. So unlike most West Jet employees!"
Cons: "Unprofessional! Lazy ! Very ungroomed ! I thought this was the worst two flight attendants l have ever seen with West Jet ! Had this been my first flight, I’d never return! Lots of options to fly with other air lines. That was flight from Toronto to Ottawa. Now the flight from Tampa to Toronto, the female flight attendant in the Plus section was an “ air head “ ! I had preordered the chicken salad & since l was in the plus section on the plane l paid more willingly and when l asked for the cheese & grapes container, she rolled her eyes, came back with the food & no knife and fork to eat the salad ! I tried to get her attention & since that didn’t work, I used the buzzer! I politely asked for a knife & fork to eat the salad! The young flight attendant had trouble processing the information so l very politely repeated my request! Lordie, it was training day at West Jet !"
Pros: "Good seat and leg room. Fairly well worn toilet kept clean all the way. Great courtesy."
Cons: "Boarding in San Jose was v poor. Gate '4a and 4b'are exit through the same door. 2 flights boarding at same time. Chaos from exit gate down ramp and on Tarmac. P A system echoes and is very hard to hear so passengers for Oakland 4b and to Vancouver 4a we're crowding the gate together. Only One member of airport Staff struggling to direct the large crowd."
Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Cons: "Very poor attitude of cabin crew. if they don’t want to serve the “guests” get another job."
Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"
Pros: "My first trip started on a poor note; I got to airport about an hour before boarding, only to find out that my flight was rescheduled from 9:30am to about 6:15pm ( or so) on that same day without prior notice. I went up to the counter and asked for confirmation for the switch and inquire if there was an issue, which may have affected my original flight. Turned out that the change was due to weather conditions at Toronto (makes sense). I had suggested that it would have been nice to receive some sort of notification, before starting that day way too early and inconvenience of going to pickup my car from the airport parking, only to come back again. The attendant sympathized with my plight and compensated me with a lunch voucher (which was nice of him and WestJet). Matter was resolved; I came back to catch my flight and the trip was wonderful :)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight was rescheduled without receiving any notification from Westjet."
Cons: "They were not on time"
Cons: "It wasnt possible to connect to entertainment system or wifi even though I had paid for wifi"
Pros: "Nice flight crew."
Cons: "Ground crew couldn’t get luggage on plane fast enough because of lack of staff so we sat on tarmac for 2 hours."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "Carousel number although we only had carry-on"
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."
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."
Cons: "plane just stood and everyone just sat on the plane for a solid hour an a half. I almost missed my connecting flight with another airline."
Pros: "The West Jet reps everywhere were calm, cool, and friendly. I thought they were terrific. In Edmonton, the women from West Jet did their best to help and keep the waiting disgruntled passengers informed. In Kelowna, when I discovered my luggage was still in Calgary, the West Jet rep was cheerful and helpful. How could I possibly be annoyed?"
Cons: "Wrong. I ended up in Kelowna."
Pros: "Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it."
Cons: "No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me."
Pros: "Excellent. Again staff was very courteous and caring. Smooth comfortable flight all the way."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Always delayed, this time because an international flight arrived when we were supposed to board, frustrating"
Pros: "It was on time and short"
Pros: "Very helpful employees letting us know procedure of bosrding"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Stewardess let me change seats to a cooler part of the cabin at the back of the plane."
Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."
Pros: "Go from point a to point b"
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Your website and westjet allowed price gouging to happen. I had to spend about $2500 for two new flights, to replace two flights that were cancelled on September 8th due to Hurricane Irma. The previous flights cost total $678 for two people from FLL to EDI. But you allowed us to be charged $2500 for the same exact route, and we had to spend due to the emergency. The very next day the President of the USA stated it was unethical for price gouging to happen. I request at least 50% refunded back"
Pros: "The fly is in time"
Cons: "A bit of disorganization in the row where they reviewed documentation and the suitcases of three machines to print passages only served 1"
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"
Cons: "Old 737-700, AC didn't work, no Westjet connect just the small screens that don't work very well and seats were very cramped. Sat on Tarmac for 45 min in 95 degree heat and AC was not working"
Pros: "I forgot sparge photo on the plane and only realized this when i was picking up my checked bag. A crew member was able to get it off the plane and bring it to arrivals for me. I was very thankful."
Cons: "Seating was tight; I was a little too close for comfort to the passenger on my left."
Pros: "Both going and coming was excellent, even with a bit of a delay got in before time, good service, friendly, spacious, I cannot say that of any other airline when flown economy. I really enjoyed the flight and was impressed. I have to ask that you keep up the good work and you might just be NA best airlines, unlike Air Canada, they suck. LOVE WESJET-bit pricey at times LOL"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."
