Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "i would love to seat beside passenger who doesn’t snore bery loud."
Cons: "Like to have some reading materials"
Pros: "So now we check in on line. Check in at Terminal 2 Then at the gate the West Jet staff do repeats calls asking for people to check in. The shuttle from Terminal 2 to 3 seems unnecessary, especially with the set of stairs to bus shuttle. A bit dangerous to line up on stairs especially for the elderly managing bags etc. Lower price on checked bags and you will not have to do repeated call out for volunteers."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided great service."
Pros: "Decent flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Also they said there is USB sockets at your seat but there were none."
Cons: "I cancelled my trip back and I had to call 4 times to West jet just to get an answer to my request. And by the end nothing got done."
Pros: "More leg room in seat than expected."
Pros: "Airport staff went above and beyond to get my mother through the airport. We had a tight transfer and they helped us make it to the gate on time."
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Fairly standard flight. By checking in early was able to change seat closer to front."
Cons: "With baggage fees now in place, people are really over doing the carry-on & oversize bags aren't being caught by the airline."
Pros: "Joesph air host was amazing! Took care of numerous people with kindness & professionalism on our morning fright from Toronto to Vegas!"
Cons: "Lots of kids on the flight. Parents did a great job coupled with the staff. I very grateful! I needed a nap ! Iol"
Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and checked on me quite often"
Cons: "Capt made the decision to delay push back by about 18 minutes to wait for 2 passengers A very nice gesture which I understand but I had to run at yvr to get my connecting flight ."
Pros: "Great flight. It was like the plane wasnt even moving !!"
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: "On time - lots of legroom (after previous flight on Q400)"
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: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
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: "trip was fairly smooth, flight was on time. Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Trying to carry travel on luggage up the aisles is very awkward when the plane is already full or half full of people. seating should be done in a bit more order. back 5 rows, next 5 etc. Crew should have a better knowledge of the land masses flying over."
Pros: "On-time scchedule"
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."

Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Pros: "I was 8 mins late to check in."
Pros: "It was an hour and 10 minute flight, so there wasn't really much space for error. They still gave me snacks and drinks which I didn't expect considering how short of a trip it was."
Pros: "the connection time in Calgary was short, so overall the trip was verily quick. Generally, the flight was good, clean plane, good services."
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: "The service was fantastic. It always is. I always use west jet and have never had any issues. Friendly staff very helpful. I will continue to use west jet. My parents live in Calgary and I travel a lot for work so you will see me again."

Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
Pros: "It was a little bit delayed but after the airplane arrived everything was very fast."
Cons: "I don't have any problem about the west jet, I know that some delays is complete normal because the weather or air traffic."
