    I thought it was super cool just to have a live Santa who interacted so
    well with the West Jet adults and children. Loved
    seeing the kids reaction when Santa knew their names. I was blown away when as I
    watched the rest of the story. What a great feel-good video and a fantastic idea!! Well done West Jet!

  • Vanessa Theoret

    I’m so excited to get back on a Montréal-Vancouver flight with you guys !!! :)

  • Danny

    My father passed away last night at 8 pm and I would like to know if there is a way West Jet can get me to Moncton New Brunswick for tomorrow for his viewing or at the latest Thursday for his funeral. I would be leaving the Edmonton International Airport. Would love a reply from West Jet

  • Jim

    A crew change 5 minutes before the flight is scheduled and the new captain they called they had to wake up from his sleep at the holiday inn? Flight 578 to Montreal. Oh well another flight delayed. Timing will be perfect. I suspect by the time the new Captain appears the freezing rain will hit and we will be delayed further.

  • MyHotelgenie

    Great Airline -Excellent Staff… They put the “Action” in Customer SatisfACTION
