West Jet was amazing from day one. The staff, ticket agents security people, inflight staff all were so helpful. They certainly define amazing customer service. The price was great even with the upgrade to plus. We fly West Jet whenever we can.

Just back from an EXCELLENT vacation with West Jet to Punta Cana, Grand Bahi Principe. We were extremely impressed with the service, right from the beginning when we had pre flight questions which were answered in detail when we called. Flights were good, although our home flight was delayed by a few hours because of mechanical issues where the plane...

We flew to Vancouver from Toronto and back one week later. Visited our daughter who studies at UBC. On the way to Vancouver we had seats at the exit and on the way back we "invested" for an upgrade. Both times we were very comfortable. The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful.

We flew WestJet as we had a WJ vacation. The screens were great for the first leg to Toronto, then from there, the next plane had no screens but Wifi that was not working :( The best part was that we were greeted by WJ reps and shuttled the 1.5 hours to Negril. The next day our contact, Latoya, met...

This airline really impressed me. I usually fly Air Cda. WestJet flights are run like a smoothly run corporation...... Staff know their jobs, they project an air of humour, efficiently and fun. Flights leave on time, the plane was super clean, staff are really attentive. WestJet is owned by staff and it really shows. Its not just a job to...

Check in staff at Calgary airport were fantastic and crew on board were also very friendly. Leg room was ok but seats were narrow. When I tried to recline my seat during the flight the lady behind me told me she couldn't watch her paid for movie! So I had to sit straight up ...not very comfy!

Our blended family chose a WestJet vacation for our first trip together. We were very pleased with the level of service that was provided and the relative comfort in which we travelled. One of our party was a first time flyer and he had only good things to say about his experience.

Flight from Toronto to Puerto Plata - quick check in, flight left on time and was uneventful. Arrival at Puerto Plata airport to fly back to Toronto was chaos. The gate wasn't open when we arrived, staff told us to line up in the middle of the lobby and didn't communicate updates and ignored all requests for information. Flight home...
