When I fly out of Calgary, it is almost always with WestJet. If you have never heard of this amazing airline, let me introduce to you the TOP 7 Reasons to fly WestJet.
1. Service, service, service…
Let me tell you a story. I was delayed in Vancouver and our WestJet flight left about 1.5 hours late. Inconvenient yes but a reality of air travel. Two weeks later I received in the mail a voucher from WestJet that more than covered the bordom suffered while sitting in an airport longer than expected.
Friendly staff and great customer service is what we have come to expect when we fly WestJet. With out a doubt, this is # 1.
2. Cool Wing Tips
They are actually called Winglets and are used to reduce drag and improve handling. Also, they look really cool. WestJet has them on the majority of their Boeing 737 fleet.
It is rare that I can find a flight cheaper than what is offered through WestJet. When was the last time you booked a flight for $69.00?
4. Great Destinations
Lots for a Western Canadian to choose from. Most of my travel needs are covered. Check it out for yourself.
5. In-Flight Entertainment
This is a good thing. On my last trip to Vegas I watched the CFL Western Final above the Clouds – GO STAMPS!
6. Young Average Fleet Age
Did you know that WestJet has an average fleet age of 5.1 years? Compare that with Air Canada (10.5 years) and American Airlines (15 years) and WestJet is looking good. I like flying on newer planes.
7. They have never lost my bags
I have no idea how many bags are lost on WestJet flights but I will say I have yet to arrive at my destination without the luggage I started with. Golf clubs, big luggage, small luggage and skis all arrive on time.
