Cons: "More than an hour late departing. Added to that it was almost an hour before luggage appeared. Not West Jet’s fault but it made us even later resulting in some of our long drive of our drive to Grand Canyon being in the dark."
Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."
Cons: "Getting from one flight to the other was a major hassle. How many times do they have to check your boarding pass?"
Pros: "Great job overall."
Pros: "Gate agents wonderful - helped with a Passport issue and seating."
Cons: "Onboard flight attendant not happy with a seat change request (as recommended by gate agent) and then remained sullen (to me only) for duration of the flight. Childish."
Pros: "Super helpful gate agents and smooth entry process back into the country."
Cons: "Crew on plane weren’t great. The male attendant wasn’t very understanding when a little girl had to use bathroom before we even left the gate. One of the women attendants ended up letting her go while taxing. Clearly the guy doesn’t understand kids. We could have ended up with a plane smelling like"
Cons: "More than 1 drink served"
Cons: "We landed in Phoenix and spent over an hour on the runway, when we did finally get a gate it didn’t work. The delays caused me to miss my ground transportation."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "I could not get through to westjet for days due to weather. Then when they called, they hung up on me as connected....back to another hour wait. Then an email. Then 5 days later to hear that despite all of their chaos there would be no changes."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled."
Pros: "No ability to change dates of flight."
Cons: "Paying a charge to change flight"
Cons: "Had seat that didn’t recline and not in an exit row. My fault for not changing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The WestJet staff took great care of my dad right from when we entered the airport in Calgary to when he landed in Phoenix. They made sure he was comfortable and that his experience was stress free."
Cons: "No control over this but they waited on the tarmac for 30 minutes before taking off. They made up the time in the air. I'm sure that de-icing the plane was the reason for part of the delay. Safety first."
Pros: "Great flight! Great service and way more room than air canada! And ACTUALLY on time!"
Pros: "No delays flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Prices of flights going to Calgary Canada"
Cons: "Prices did not include specific seat.. that was an additional price to pick a seat"
Cons: "Four hour delay notice after i had my ticket and sittting at the gate. Got an email at 8:00 am that the flight was delayed till 1:00 pm. Late getting out of maintenance shop. Had to have know hours earlier when still at home. That i would have totall"
Pros: "pleasant staff"
Cons: "no record of pre-purchased meal internet cost $10 and was very very slow-unusable zero seating in Westjet gates (PHX)"
Cons: "First flight on WestJet in 3 Years. Didn’t like not knowing I needed a tablet or laptop and an app to watch tv. Offered a drink and asked for water. Received about 2 ounces. Every body around me ordered soft drinks and got a 10 ounce can"
Cons: "Paid extra for preferred seat and had to give it up and sit in the middle seat."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in the plane for 4 hours when 20 minutes into the delay the flight attendants knew they weren't going to be able to fly with us, and instead of cancelling the flight 20 minutes into the delay we sat on the plane for 4 hours while the crew knew we were not going to take off. There were a handful of infants and children (my 10 month old nephew included) and for the crew to keep the passengers on the plane for 4 hours when they knew the flight was going to be cancelled is unacceptable."
Pros: "Efficient, cost effective and chill flight process"
Cons: "Nothing really, even the coffee was delicias."
Pros: "The flight was good but it was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The hour delay was an incomvience."
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Phoenix was even worse than Air Canada. No food available to purchase. Cramped seating. Entertainment system was difficult to navigate...the buttons didn't work half the time, the movies were already playing and all the "bad" words were edited out which changed the entire movie. Waste of time. Would not fly WestJet again based on this experience. And what's the point of checking in online when you're called to verify id again at the check in counter."
Cons: "Warmest flight I was ever on. Entertainment system didn’t work."
Pros: "The Flight Attendants were excellent!"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight Late by Over 1 Hour due to deicing which they should have built into their boarding time schedule and two passenger did not show up causing further delays."
Pros: "The information given by the pilot overhead was timely and well delivered. The flight was smooth and we arrived safely."
Cons: "We sat for 4 hours on the runway. Aside from 1 crew member, they were impersonal, rude, and unaccomodating. They pilot spoke overhead very pleasantly and apologetically and encouraged walking around and using the restroom but they crew gave everyone a hard time. There was no offer of complementary food service or compensation for anyone despite being on the plane for double the amount of time planned. Finally, the in flight entertainment worked for maybe half hour of the actual flight with no explanation or acknowledgement."
Pros: "Check-in staff were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "1 lady wanted off the flight during deicing because she thought she would miss her connection. We technically were in flight as we had crosschecked and cleared the gate. Westjet decided they would let her off and delay the whole plane another hour and cause several people including us to miss our connection. Westjet support staff were not very helpful and a supervisor told me that they was out of their control. Wr did get a hotel but our flight was not until the next day. They put us on a 5 hour flight with a connection for a 25 min flight. The lady who wanted off was just a spoiled, she was sitting directly in front of me. So, if you ever just want to get off a plane just ask. Westjet will screw a whole plane for you."
Pros: "We boarded on time, and when we were delayed by fog, we were kept informed."
Cons: "We were one hour late landing, couldn't be helped. But, it was a 45 minute wait for our luggage."
Pros: "Got away a little late (full flight and de-icing) but still managed to get in to Phoenix well ahead of the scheduled arrival time."
Cons: "Lots of delays on different flights for members of our party flying from various points in US to Calgary and on returns. Several folks had damage to their luggage, including wheels torn off of baggage and a cracked ski helmet."
Pros: "WestJet was Great again.... Boarded promptly, and a smooth flight, with friendly staff"
Pros: "Bravo for being such amazing human beings. Much obliged for a wonderful flight. Merry Christmas"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Had an aisle seat but was disturbed 4 times throughout the flight. Not impressed"
Pros: "Movies, satilite was out"
Cons: "Two hours late boarding. Waiting for crew!"
Pros: "The pleasantness of the crew. West Jet usually has one of the friendliest staff, in my experience."
Cons: "1st time around, I declined snacks. 2nd time around, I had my tray table down and I wasn’t asked or offered a snack. I could have asked, and my fellow passengers beside me offered to ask when she came back with his drink but I didn’t want to bother. I don’t think she would have refused but I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t asked."
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: "On my ticket I had my wife, my mother-in-law and my two kids guess what, my wife and kid was marked as children and my one month was marked as adult, because of this we had to waste so much time in fixing this, the flight was early morning and we had planned to buy the breakfast from the airport because of this we couldn’t even buy breakfast we had to literally run for the flight"
Pros: "Aisle seat and the crew was great!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Gates were changed and I was not informed. Flight was almost an hour delay. My luggage was never even put on the plane. So I cam from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to Yuma, AZ and have no baggage, no clothes, toiletries, nothing! It is 9:14pm and won't have any luggage until MAYBE 7-8pm Monday night. It is Sunday night now. Not happy!!!!!!!! No food on the flight!!"
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"
Pros: "I was rescheduled to a flight that got me to phoenix at 7pm... Ended up missing a meeting."
Cons: "Instead of a straight flight to Phoenix they rescheduled me to a 2 stop flight until my final destination."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, friendly and always smiling. I prefer an aisle seat, and they took much more care not to bump you than I've experienced on other flights. Left on time, arrived early. One of the few flights I've been on with no issues."
Cons: "Seriously who fly's international without baggage? BS on paying fees for a checked bag for an INTERNATIONAL flight - but everyone does that money grab. Seats are not made for someone with any height - I'm 6', and the seats were uncomfortably positioned for my back - and way too low to support my head. They supposedly have an app to send you alerts about your flight - doesn't work - re-installed twice, and got the same can't connect message on different days (my phone was on a gig network wifi)."
Pros: "All the ground staff in Toronto were extremely helpful, polite and friendly....execllent! Flt crew were also polite and friendly. Flt seating was a bit cramped but ok."
Cons: "Somewhat delayed getting into gate on arriving."
Pros: "Flight staff actually appeared to be concerned with all of the passengers"
Cons: "The "bell sound" when an announcement is made is incredibly loud......annoying so."
