WestJet Airlines customer review

(Canada)

My wife and I booked a round trip to Cancun. Turns out Westjet is a rather ordinary airline with the usual amenities. We travel at least twice a year and have flown with several airlines and Westjet is just another hohum get to the destination boring company. I think they have lost their uniqueness in a big way.

WestJet Airlines customer review

(Canada)

My wife and I had flown to Las Vegas for a wedding getaway and honeymoon. WestJet boasts the largest seats and greatest legroom. I'm 5'7" and was extremely cramped. The fellow beside me was 6'4" and almost had his knees in his ears. The seats were very narrow very uncomfortable. There was almost no padding in the seats. They didn't recline more than a couple of inches and there wasn't even room for a laptop to be put on the fold down table. It was a 707-700 so seats were 3 across. Between my wife and the fellow on the other side we had no choice but to put the arm rests up so the 3 of us could sit quasi-comfortably. The flight attendants were obvious unhappy with their jobs. Out of the 4 3 of them were just blank faced and walked around like robots. The air circulation system wasn't working properly the forward toilet kept clogging up. So all in all this was an extremely unpleasant flight.

Vancouver to Los Cabos. Horrible flight passengers very loud and noisy flight staff not happy no movies as advertised. New rate change in fares went to book return ticket and advised no economy fares left but I could have a very expensive plus fare. When I went in to review seats the flight was only a third full and most of the plus fares were at the back of the plane. I flew down for $216 but they wanted over $600 for a fare home on a flight that at this time is only half full. Not sure what's happening with Westjet between their fares and customer service delays etc. I will be giving my business back to Air Canada as it doesn't appear that Westjet is interested in keeping their loyal customers.

Prince George via Vancouver to Calgary over-nighted with family then back to airport in morning (10 people). On to Varadero Cuba I was not too happy when I discovered that we were split up on the plane. It was better coming home as we were all together after speaking with the Westjet agent at our resort. Flight back to Prince George was great. In Calgary the agent told everyone that the televisions may not work and suggested that we buy magazines to read. The movies were great both going and coming from Cuba.

Flew from Vancouver to Maui and found out that it was a 6 hour trip with no entertainment unless you rented a tablet from them to watch a movie. Total money grab and really put the flavour that you're riding a cheap airline. It was the same on the way back. We didn't notice anything different than any of our other flights that would have indicated there was not going to be any entertainment offered. I could tell from the reaction staff were friendly and they couldn't do anything about it.

WestJet Airlines customer review

(Dominican Republic)

I am very limited as to who I can fly back to Canada with from Punta Cana. I have flown 4 times now on WestJet. Each flight was on time and the service and comfort on-board met the expectations. One must remember you are not paying for 1st class seats. That being said I found for my 5'9" 190lb body that the seating was more than adequate. Traveling with an infant can be a challenge and the staff at the check in as well as on the plane did what they could to be of assistance. Food quality was better than I expected and for once I have found an airline that serves cold beer. The onboard TV only works half of the way. I am planning another trip home and even if there were more options for me I would choose WestJet.

WestJet Airlines customer review

(Canada)

Let me start by saying that I have flown WestJet for many years and it has always been my first choice in airline when planning our next vacation. This past experience was by far the worst I have ever had. We left Edmonton late due to "mechanical" delays but they ensured us we would catch our connection in Vancouver. We landed in Vancouver to find out our connecting flight just pushed away from the gate (but still on the ground). They rerouted us to Toronto. We couldn't land in Toronto due to weather so we flew to Ottawa. They wouldn't let us pull up to the gate so the entire plane sat for 2 hours. We were not offered water or any form of refreshment. We then flew back to Toronto and again just missed our connection... but the connecting plane was still on the ground. We were offered a hotel and told to pick up our luggage. We waited 2 hours for the customer service people to find our luggage... which was in Vancouver. The flight the next morning was 30 minutes late and I have never had such rude crew staff. They were more interested in complaining to each other loudly than serve beverages. We waited 90 minutes for a glass of water. There was also no inflight entertainment on this flight. When we landed in Cancun they said they would bring our bags to us... we had to continue to call them over the next 36 hours until our luggage finally arrived to us. The flight home was better in general... expect it was 3 hours delayed because of required crew rest. One of them yelled at me which I found very rude and uncalled for. I have been a loyal customer of westjet for years... this was a terrible experience.

PHX-YWG. Everyone boarded nice and early we pushed back on-time but still managed to depart 40 minutes late. Not Westjet's fault as there was lots of traffic on the ground at PHX but still frustrating nonetheless. Once in the air the flight attendants immediately came around with a water run which was nice. Also the live TV no longer works in the states which is disappointing and would rather watch that then movies. Ended up landing in YWG about an hour late. Will avoid using Westjet outside of Canada as they are more expensive than everyone else and now their inflight service is on par or below everyone else's. The flight attendants were the only good part as they were pleasant and efficient.

Despite having seats in the Emergency access the person sitting in the aisle seat had to awkwardly get out of his seat to let us out. The centre aisle was impossible to negotiate with other passengers and beverage carts. There was no entertainment and seat backs did not recline. There needs to be control of carry on baggage that people bring on board as we had trouble finding a little space for our small bag. The public announcement system was very difficult to understand. the person speaking spoke quickly and did not enunciate. The only benefit of the flight was that we got back to Vancouver!

Sitting in airport at this moment flight from Honolulu was late. Fine but flight plan allowed for time to be made up and arrived with time to connect onto original flight. Nope not an option. Even though they knew that anyone connecting to spots like Saskatoon would have to sit all day and not arrive home until 9pm - no attempt to hold the plane for the 5 mins it would of taken to get on that flight. These are being offered as flights for holidays and its not reasonable for you to start a flight at 7.30 pm (3 hours prior) and not get home for 26.5 hours later. I would of assumed that arrangements would of been made to make sure passengers could get connections.
