This has to better - will fix that recent thread problem about the date of check in when check in was just before midnight and departure was after midnight.

With the AM/PM and the 24 hour clock it's about time (no pun intended) we had a single system - whilst we are at it can we do away with time zones please as I find I can't remember when to change my watch, I just remembered this morning to change my clocks to UK summertime. Let's all vote for WestJet time.

My stupid iPhone must be the US version not the Canadian one. It won't convert to metric time. Is there an App for that?

It's a conspiracy as European iphones do not show the option for metric time....

Oh Canada, you've created the Esperanto of giving time.

I think that everyone knows the date, and WestJet have a reputation for this type of entertainment. They are quite good at it actually.. :)

Clever idea and the conversion explanation was funny, but honestly I thought the previous years were funnier.

Bravo for keeping the tradition going though.
