Recently flying home from a work trip and was going to be sitting around for a long time waiting for my flight. I spoke with Stephané and Janice about switching to an early flight. To my surprise they were able to accommodate. Not only were they efficient but they were really nice and friendly. They chatted with passengers and amongst...

I love to travel, it's my very favorite thing to do, however, I HATE flying! This can make the beginning and ending of my fun trips awful. Back in May I went to Cancun via WestJet. I always let everyone get on the plane ahead of me as the less time I have to spend in the plane the better....

My most recent flight to Thunder Bay was absolutely wonderful....from the ticket agents in the Pearson Airport terminal to the flight crew - everything was professional and spot on. The flight attendants were busy throughout the flight but friendly and helpful nevertheless. The temperature in the cabin was perfect, and the take off and landing were seamless. I even enjoyed...

I initially booked us economy seats to Gatwick, but due to a broken foot in a cast I upgraded up to Plus. Having already paid for seat selection and a hot meal, that money just disappears and is non refundable. I desperately need to upgrade for the return journey, but can't until 24 hours prior to travel and only if...

Scheduled Departure time was 13.15. Allowed to board from 12.30 onwards. Did not take off until 14.30. No reason given for the delay. At about 16.30 flight attendants appeared with their trolley serving meals and drinks. When I wanted a drink of water and something to eat I was told that they are serving those who have pre purchased and...

Traveled from Glasgow to Toronto as a family with 2 kids. On the way out was a bit long as the entertainment system didn't work. The staff were fabulous however! Never laughed so much during the safety talks!! Our 5 year old also got to sit in the captains seat in the cockpit! The flights were basically 2/3 the price...

My wife and I took a quick trip to explore the Avalon peninsula of Newfoundland. The flight left on time, staff pleasant. We would absolutely fly WestJet again.

I have been flying West Jet since they started. Great prices, staff are awesome! Their website is well laid out, easy to book flights, compare dates and timings. In one instance a decade back, I had an emergency - a loved one in a Vancouver Hospital who had suddenly taken a turn for the worse overnight. I was paged at...

We flew from Kelowna, B.C. to Fort Myers Florida for our winter getaway this spring, & cannot say enough about the staff and crew in terms of making it happen. As opposed to some of the other major airlines, the staff always looks for a solution, The customer service and attitude is impeccable.
