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.

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.

The customer service was great due to sell off vacations messing up our flight. The lady on the other end was extremely pleasant and the plus service was excellent! From now on, I will go back to booking through the airline I travel with. Less hassle.

Excellent flight. The extra seat between us really helped to make the trip easy and even enjoyable. West Jet is a first-class operation, and we will definitely fly it again.

We travelled with Westjet back in June, then returning home in July, last year. The seats were comfortable and we had enough space for what was a fairly long journey. The in-flight entertainment was great as well. For us, the staff were what made the flights as good as they were. Everyone was so cheery and helpful, which helps when...
