|Top route||Vancouver Intl to Calgary|
The plane was very warm and stuffy, overhead air jet running very weakly: disconcerting when Covid is still a real concern. ie: fresh air would be nice. On arrival, a 15 minute wait once the plane was stopped at the gate before the door was opened to let passengers leave. Then a 50 minute wait for luggage.
Smooth travel during March Break. Thanks WJ.

Be sure to bring own entertainment.
Not a tonne of food for purchase items for early morning.
This flight home was excellent. Watched a movie on my private screen so time went quickly. Nice smooth ride!
The plane was so hot and the air above was basically nothing.
Crew was great and pilot explained why we were late and what was happening . Could have had a bit more food —(cookies,pretzels and drinks just didn’t cut it as it turned out to be a 10hr flight and not a 5.5hr flight!
The whole process for us was easy and seamless. Nice crew, on time departure, easy flight, very little if any turbulence. There’s no entertainment on short haul flights however passengers were chatting to each other about their trip which was good to hear vs plugged in. Vegan options for purchase would be good. Overall a really good flight experience.
The 787 was amazing. Listening to screaming and crying children for four hours was horrible. Small children should be in one section. Seats were very comfortable and leg room was fantastic. Information was very generic on timing.
At the gate I got bumped from my reserved aisle seat to a window. Not a huge deal for a one-hour flight, but the "free seat reservations" are indeed "free" but not "reservations".
A lot of people needing bathroom before arrival some didn’t get to use; plane a little small felt cramped but worked still a bigger plane would be nice. Crew was friendly and flight was on time and smooth. No food for vegans 🤔
There is not a lot of leg room, I was fine but my husband is tall. It was a short flight so that helped.
My flight with WestJet was cancelled due to weather and because I booked with Kayak I was not a priority for rebooking so I have not been able to find a flight for five days. My vacation time would be over at that point. I was not aware of that in cancellation I would not be a priority And could not find another flight. In a good point, I was refunded quickly and without issue it’s very disappointing. You plan your vacation and cannot find another flight without long layovers.
This flight was delayed 3 times and no compensation was given. Very disappointed with my flight experience
Flight staff did fine once the plane actually left its departure location. But the 3-hr delay due to “flight crew was not present” followed by a 1-hr delay to “un-board ~10 people, and re-board these people due to an unclear security breach” was unacceptable.
How long ,and having to fly west of Regina to Edmonton , then fly over Regina to Toronto 👎, then to puerto plata !! Same on way home, puerto plata to Toronto then fly over Regina to Calgary👎. Then back to Regina !
That travel day was a gong show from the start checkin wasn’t possible so we all showed 3 hours early and waited 2 hours to check in to fly
Everything was great
Absolutely horrible service filled with delays and problems will never travel with Flair Airlines and WestJet delays delays and mor delays absolutely Horrible customer service and Really Experience.
We wanted to secure seating for this flight back while we were in Toronto to get better seats but we were told we couldn’t do that till at least 24hrs before departure when we tried to do that all the seats were gone and we were lucky to get two seats together over the wing very unhappy and squished in we asked ticket agent at front counter and he told us there was nothing he could do for us not good 🥲
No turbulence thank God
I liked getting on the plane first that's it actually. They did a offer to upgrade and it so was not worth it
WestJet at Toronto airport is a mess, flown multiple times and every time there is a 100m line for check in - the machines do not work for 80% of people. Its a shambles. You will be spending at least an hour before your flight in that line.
Low cost flight so no movie screen. Minimal food- coffee and a biscuit. 3 hours long so no issue with this.
Every step of the trip was flawless
It was very pleasant to fly with WestJet! I would recommend to my friends. The crews were very nice too!
It could have snacks to purchase as what was stated in the card with flights over 1.5 hours
Same as previous.
