WestJet Air
« on: February 02, 2011, 07:29:39 AM »
Anyone have experience flying WestJet? Doesn't seem like miles can be accrued any place else, but bright side seems that 1 bag is free at least LAX-YVR...

I flew them last year a few times when they had ACY-YYZ which was discontinued. As for WestJet, think of them as the Canadian version of JetBlue.

I have flown westjet many timee to Calgary .  It is exactly like flying jetblue only difference is green leather seats instead of blue and not quite as tacky and corny as JB as recently become.

Surprisingly they have followed in Spirits    footsteps and are charging anywhere from $15-$30 a seat when booking the flight. However, within 24 hours of the flight you can choose your seat for free. Also they are starting to offer to rent iPads with movies for $10/flight...very interesting

Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
