My Experience Flying WestJet

WestJet Is a low-cost Canadian Airline founded in 1996. The airline predominately serves Canada and the United States, along with select destinations through North and South America. I recently flew on them from Windsor to Calgary, Calgary to Vancouver and finally Vancouver to Honolulu. In this review, I'll share my initial thoughts on the airlines and what flying WestJet was like.

Ground Service

Everything on the ground with WestJet was great. The staff checking our bags in each city were incredibly friendly and helpful, the gate agents were efficient and kind, plus the employees even held up a sign thanking everyone for flying WestJet as our plane departed. This was consistent on all three flights so I give WestJet and A+ for ground service.

Inflight Service

The seats onboard were surprisingly comfortable. Each seat had a charger on all three flights and the legroom was good for a low-cost carrier. Just like the ground staff, all employees were very kind throughout the trip. Complimentary drinks and snacks were served twice and water was brought via an additional service.


I really enjoyed flying WestJet. The tickets were cheaper than any alternative and the service was excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to fly with them again, in fact, I'll probably head straight to the WestJet website next time I'm headed to Canada. Anyone else have an opinion on flying WestJet?
