Pros: "Everything from ticketing to check in to flight. They are a passenger friendly airline"
Cons: "Luggage left behind due to a troubled fire alarm system in the baggage dept of the plane This maintenance issue delayed us 4 hours The ground crew had to push one of their loading tractors out from under the plane after unloading the luggage. Perhaps the PEI airport crew are lacking in maintenance procedures. It's always a little things that get you into trouble and cost lives."

Pros: "Airport counter staff v helpful. Crew were great. Helped lady with 2 kids. Looked after 1 while mom changing other."
Cons: "Need more seat room. No entertainment."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Pros: "Everything was done orderly."
Cons: "After all was boarded, there was a sick pssenge on board. It took them 45 min to decide she should get off. Dont know why it took so long."
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: "West Jet just runs a relaxed yet professional airline. They are just more laid back and accommodating. You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger. I really can’t complain....I had an entire row to myself....the best you can hope for, when riding on a plain for hours that’s like winning the lottery!"
Cons: "No complaints for sure"
Pros: "The stewards were great however no TV anymore and meals because of cost cutting was where we thought it was lacking."
Cons: "Refer to above :"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."

Cons: "The 4hour delay on the one hour flight"
Pros: "I liked the ease in getting through security."
Cons: "Indidn’t Like that that the flight was delayed by more than 1 hour. I really do mean t believe that it was because the pilot was late. I think that it was a way to arrive at the Regina airport when other planes arrived to save airport fees."

Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."

Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, Crew was nice, competent and friendly. The Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "1. Unexpected 25$ checked baggage fee 2.No meal: They only served drinks, pretzels and hard cookies. Extra food needed to be paid for. 3.Older aircraft so no entertainment options other than TV and Movies. (no way to start, pause or end any movies or programs."
