Our Experience

The automated system does not provide a clear path to the customer service department. The available options allow customers to book flights, make reservations and check the status of current flights. When the system transferred the call to the service department, we were greeted with the most obscure statement we have heard. The system stated the anticipated wait time was 44 minutes. Not wanting to wait this long, we decided to call at a later time.

We called later and eventually spoke with a customer service agent. We asked if calling was an efficient method to reach the customer service department. Although the agent reassured us this was the best contact methods, we will try using another form of communication. We are sure your story was better than our story. Leave a comment below.

  3. I am contacting you to complain and voice my opinion about the terrible incident which occurred to my step daughter, Morgan Dobroski, on Dec. 21-Dec 22nd. I booked her flights below and my reservation code was as follows – TEYKJU
    Morgan’s flight from Edmonton (WS3259) was scheduled to depart at 5:15pm on Dec. 21st. Upon arrival at the airport she notified us that it was delayed till 5::50pm. We told her to check with her gate attendant to ensure she was still okay to catch her connecting flight in Calgary (WS202) which was scheduled to depart at 7:10. She was told not to worry by the attendant as all flights were delayed. We were notified again of another delay – half hour this time. We again told Morgan to check to ensure she would make her connection. Again she was told not to worry and that she would make her flight. We didn’t get her to question this as after all you (westjet) are the experts and not us so we trusted what you told us. But inhind sight we NEVER should have done this.
    Morgan’s flight finally left and myself and my husband made our way to Winnipeg (we live 3 hours from the Winnipeg airport). Once we arrived in Winnipeg we received a panicked phone call that Morgan in deed had missed her flight and that Westjet had no idea what to do. She was told to go to the counter and would get more assistance. She called us back crying and very upset about 15 minutes later saying she was told she has to do to Vancouver and spend the night there as they don’t have any other flights to Winnipeg. Which to us made NO SENSE but we weren’t able to talk to anyone at Westjet as they told our daughter that she had no choice and if she wanted to get to Winnipeg she had to go to Vancouver that night and stay over and fly out to Winnipeg the following evening. As my step daughter was already very upset and scared (has only flown 1 time before) and she had already boarded the plane we told her not to worry and to call when she gets to Vancouver. Needless to say I was very distraught and upset that your attendants figured it was okay to send a minor (she is 17) to Vancouver all by herself and expect her to spend the night in a hotel and then return to the airport to catch an evening flight!!!!
    We turned around and headed home (which I should add was another 3 hours so in total that day we traveled 6 hours for NOTHING except to be upset at the fact that your company sent our daughter to Vancouver without consulting with us!) On the way home I called Westjet and voiced my stress over this situation and to find out what was going on as we had no info, no flight #’s, etc. I explained Morgan was only 17 and not a flyer and wanted to know why anyone thought it was okay to put her on a plane to Vancouver without calling us! I was able to somehow get her on a flight leaving Vancouver at 6:45am to Calgary after I explained I was NOT having my daughter travelling from the airport to a hotel and back again by herself in a taxi and spending the entire day at the Vancouver airport so she can fly out Sunday evening. I have no idea your employees did not think to ask Morgan if she could spend the night in Calgary and catch the plane to Winnipeg on Sunday as they told her she had to go to Vancouver as no flights out on Sunday to Winnipeg! Seriously???? Morgan has an aunt in Calgary and I tell you it would have been a whole lot less stressful on all of us if she could have stayed in Calgary, but no instead she was pushed on a Vancouver flight! Makes no sense! Thank goodness I called Westjet and got them to put her on an earlier flight to Calgary otherwise our 17 year old daughter would have had to stay all day at the Vancouver airport by herself.
    To say the least we are not impressed by this whole incident! We had to call Westjet again once she arrived in Vancouver to ensure she was escorted to her hotel as for some reason you kept wanting to put her up in a hotel where she had to take a taxi back and forth…I was NOT having this as bad enough my minor child was at the airport by herself but now you wanted her to take a taxi to a hotel in a city she has NEVER been. Then we had to call your westjet line again Sunday am when her shuttle that your attendant said he booked for her the evening when he dropped her off at the hotel, never showed up! Can you imagine how panicked she was that again she had no idea where she was going and all alone! Thank goodness she is a strong young girl and was able to go on her own while I called Westjet to make sure they sent someone to locate her and make sure she made it to her gate! She made it to the gate before they found her and after a lengthy conversation on the phone with a westjet attendant we finally got through to your staff that she is a minor and not a flyer and that we need your staff to ensure she is helped along the way…it only took 3 calls to get this done!!!!
    Morgan finally made it home from this whole ordeal to Winnipeg and we are thankful for that. But I wanted to send in this feedback as it was NOT a good situation and I don’t know if we will be booking anymore tickets with westjet going forward after the confusion that went down with this flight! Plus the fact that we had to make two trips to Winnipeg (total of 12 hours of driving)…which we should have just done in the first place and drove to Edmonton to go get her!!!! I hope that in the future you and your staff take the time to speak to your passengers …especially younger ones and find out how old they are and help them to make arrangements that fit their needs and not just yours! I understand things happen and flights get missed and delayed as I have flown quite a bit myself but I am appalled at how you handled this and did it not even occur to you to have a discussion with Morgan to see what option would be the best for her?
    I would appreciate contact back regarding this event as before I ever book another WestJet ticket I need to ensure that you understand the impact this had on all of us as a family during the holidays. Plus the additional expenses it caused!

    Regards,
    Heather Davis

  4. I am very upset by the treatment i received by a hostess employed with westjet. I have always supported this airline by flying frequently with thembur now I am having second thoughts. I purchased tickets online for myself and my sick daughter to travel for medical assistance. Due to her ill health as a precaution i requested oxygen be given if needed. The air hostess threw a fit stating that there is only oxygen for emergence and my daughter should have bought her own oxygen. She then asked us to vacate the plane and take the next flight out. I felt humiliated by the air hostess attitude as she was very loud and now had an audience from the pasangers who were now stearing at us as though my daughter and I were stowaways. To make matters worst the next flight out was the following day. This information was deliberately kept from me and in the meanwhile my daughter will have to wait until the following day to be admitted to hospital. Very angry and disappointed in service delivery.

  5. I am attempting to send you an email in regards to a survey you sent out. What is your customer service email address. Hope to hear from soon. Thank you l.b.

  6. I just tried calling the WestJet customer service # for Mexico to complain about badly damaged luggage upon my arrival into Puerto Vallarta and to my surprise got a solicitation for a 100.00 voucher for retail stores if I charge a small fee to my credit card!!, when I declined I was told to call another number! WestJet, seriously????this is your idea of customer service? Now, can you really reply to my email and address my concern? Wheels were broken off my suitcase, and obviously lost, and I cannot carry this when I go home.

  7. My flight left Kelowna 8:50 am on Thursday June 26th. I arrived 43 minutes before the flight instead of 45 minutes. The young female behind the checkin desk took this opportunity to rip into me and remind me that WestJet policy is to arrive 45 minutes before flight time in a very condescending and demeaning manner. This was in complete contrast to all my other experiences with WestJet. The flight attendant on my flight-512 I believe–he had black hair in a ponytail–interacted with his passengers in a very professional manner–laughing and joking and trying to make the flight to Toronto enjoyable. Thanks for reading this e-mail—Keith Bailey

  10. Dear West Jet,

    I recently booked a flight from Winnipeg to Calgary, scheduled to leave on Sunday, August 3, at 4:15 pm and arriving at 8:37 pm, with a layover in Regina in between. The flight numbers are WS 3273 and WS 129. I purchased these tickets on July 29 around 9:30 pm. A confirmation email was sent to me at 9:33 pm that same evening, but for some reason, the confirmation email said that my flight was WS 271, a direct flight from Winnipeg to Calgary departing at 7 am. I am certain that this is not the flight I booked, as it was more expensive than the one with the layover. I distinctly remember purchasing WS 3273/WS 129 despite the longer flight time because there was only one seat left at the seat sale price of $209.08, and I preferred the cheaper option to the shorter time option. I do not recall the exact price of the other flights departing directly to Calgary, but I recall that they were somewhere around$289, I believe (more than what I was willing to pay, in any case).

    I must admit that I only checked my confirmation email late this morning, and noticed that I was booked for flight WS 271 (reservation code: WGDPTG) departing at 7 am, which I obviously missed. I then immediately called in to re-book WS 3273/WS 129, which the agent did for me, but at the cost of a $50 late fee. I paid this, but I still believe the system to be in error. I am certain that flight WS 271 was not $209.08, but at least $80 more at the time I was online checking flights, and I am certain I went with the cheapest option, which is indeed the flight I have now had to re-book and be fined a late fee for. Therefore, despite my neglicence in immediately checking the flight confirmation, I believe that due to the fact that I believe this to be a system error, I should be refunded for the late fee, seeing as how I would have had to pay the same amount to change my flight anyways, regardless of whether I had called in immediately upon receiving the confirmation email, or on the day of my flight, as I have now done.

    Thank you for your time in reading this email. I hope we can sort this all out.

    Sincerely,
    Devon Delorme

  11. I have had numerous flights with west jet over the past 6-7 years as I travel for work. I usually an issue or two as flights with this air line rarely go smoothly. But today I’ve reached the end of my patience with them. A flight from Edmonton to vancouver should be 1.5 hours 3 hours later I’m still on the plane! Why you ask?? Simple unorganized employees! My first concern, the safety speech. This is to save lives! In the event of an emergency I would not have known what to do (I was also at the emergency exit window) the reason I would not know what to do is simply that the flight attendant choose to be funny instead of show and explain what to do. She said she was trying for a world record to say it as fast as she can. Her humour was not well relieved by anyone, as there was many children on the flight and it’s important they understand what to do. When we landed in vancouver late of course, they pulled up to THE WRONG BRIDGE! It was broken and after 55 minutes we are still sitting here waiting to get off!

  12. THe airline use to be for the people now you are for the rich, When people travel on Econo the cannot afford to pay extra for all the benifits, This is usually the middle lower and retired. So charging them $75 every time a cancelation, is just placing money in the accountants pockets. So the question I pos to the accounts and lawyers and young people encharge, are you looking for ways to work with the people (Customers) or how quick you can get rich

  13. Please stop calling my home. I wont be booking a trip using your firm when each day at various times some cheasy company calls trying to solicit for my money. I’m not aware of any “great company” using bottom feeder methods to build a stronger brand awareness. Thanks PT

  14. This morning(August 28) my family and I sit in the Pearson Airport in Toronto, ON waiting for a flight that leaves 3 hours later than our original flight. We arrived at the airport and the automated kiosk would not check us in, so we proceeded to the check-in desk. When we were waiting in line there was an employee checking info from the passengers, making sure things are ready, we told her our flight leaves in 35 minutes and she was not much help. When it was our turn at the desk the employee said she had to call the flight to see if we could still get on, she was told “no”. This employee proceeded to change our tickets which took about 10 minutes. At this point we had about 20 minutes to make our original flight. Once through security we found our new gate and started waiting for our 3 hours to pass. As we sat there was 3(yes I counted) final boarding calls for our original flight, the one we were allegedly too late for. They were also calling names of 2 or 3 people they were still looking for. Yes, I realize we could have been earlier too start this whole procedure but as you sit waiting for a new fight because you were too late for the original flight, and they are still boarding your previous flight you start to get a little pissed. I always see these commercials about how the employees really care because they are owners, well, some don’t care as much as others. If that employee she called at the gate would of said it was ok, quickly process them through I would be on my flight right now and not writing this complaint. I will add that the employee who changed our tickets did not charge us the $75 each to change our tickets because we were “late and missed our flight”, but as I mentioned earlier we heard 3 boarding calls as we waited for our new flight
    Thank you

  16. Dear Westjet
    I was not happy to hear that you are going to charge $25 for a checked bag. I don’t think this is right at all, and I am a loyal Westjet customer Westjet having such superior customer service over A…C….. Well, I do think you could have found some other way to make up the shortfall and still be competitive. Why not charge only for checked bags over a certain weight or size? Myself, I only travel with only one small carryon but at times I check it on the return flight if I have been given gifts or purchased something that cannot be carried on. I never travel with a large bag, so now I am to be penalized no matter what. How fair is that?

  17. Westjet is about to join the majority of NAmerican airlines and begin charging for checkd bags – including the first bag. This is disturbing, because in my experience, a charge for the “first” checked bag has the immediate result of passengers cramming all of their stuff into their carryon, overloaded overhead bins on the aircraft, and more hassles on board the plane. This has been experienced in US-based airlines. They insist it is called “unbundling”, an “a la carte” system. But unless the carry on is carefully scrutinized, chaos is always the result.

    annoying that Westjet has decided to follow this nasty path. They should be above it all.

  18. My wife and I have been travelling to the USA twice a year-every spring to Las Vegas to catch the NASCAR race, and every fall to a condo in Palm Springs. Whenever possible, we chose WestJet because we felt they offered the best service and value. This year, after making reservations well in advance, we were contacted by WestJet and advised that our direct, non-stop flight to Palm Springs was now going to stop over in Calgary. This means extra work and inconvenience for us as we must deboard, wait, go through a security checkpoint once again, and risk having our luggage lost or delayed. Now, add to this WestJet’s decision to start charging for each piece of checked luggage. This gives the impression of “nickel and dime-ing” customers. This year, we have chosen to drive to Palm Springs, as WestJet has taken the holiday out of flying!

  19. Westjet Trip From Toronto To Montreal Saturday Aug. 31/14

    I was Up at 01:30 getting ready for my flight to leave Wpg 05:20 am

    Got to Toronto at 07:20 to find out my flight for 11:00 was cancelled

    Went to Westjet Guest Services rep was very short didn’t explain things good gave me my options one having a day room at the Alt Hotel but had to take the go train there. I had to ask her 3 times how to get there again she was short in replying. She told me to go down the corridor till the end turn right and do not go down the escalators but to go up. I got there and there were no escalators up, only departure board, signs above that read to the gates but not ONE sign saying where to go to the train????? I didn’t know where I was going since I never has to take this train before. Me asked another employee she advised me to go thru the doors and up the escalators I finally was able to get downstairs and asked another Westjet rep where to catch it she too was not cclear on her directions. Then I asked a security rep she told me that there was no train that went to the Alt and just had to go out the front the hotel was there. She too was wrong it was the Sheraton Hotel not the Alt. I finally asked another security rep and he directed to it and explained what to do once I got there. The very disappointing thing was, I had to ask 5 people where to catch this train.

    Then after waiting for 12 hours finally got a flight out to Montreal at 07:20 pm

    Then I finally arrived in Montreal at 09:45 pm and my luggage did not arrive!!!

    Westjets last flight was coming in at midnight, they were going to c if my luggage was on that flight and they were was suppose to call us at 01:00 which we stayed up till then waiting for their call and they never called!!!

    Westjet delivery called Sunday Aug 31 @ 11:30 advising dropping luggage before 2 pm came at 14:21 and my luggage was damaged!!!!

    I was in Montreal from Saturday August 31, 2014 until September 02, 2014. Due to my flight being cancelled, waiting 12 hrs for another one, then my luggage not arriving in Montreal when I did, then having to wait till the next day for it, then noticing it was damaged,

    With all of what happened with Westjet, I lost 2 days of my trip in Montreal, which I could not visit all the family and friends that I planned on visiting!!!

    Thanks Wesjtet for ruining my trip to Montreal!!!!

  20. We have been on Air Canada, United, A.A., Air Transat, New Zealand Air, and this year we had the opportunity to fly with West Jet, on September 20th from Pearson to Maui Flt:715 and Flt:1852. We were so disappointed with the condition of the plane and the service. It was like flying in a cargo plane. There was an announcement made apologizing for the conditions of the old equipment. Which serviced no purpose to us as we paid the full price to fly. Very unhappy customers!!!!!!

  21. Dear Sir/Madam

    On October 14, 2014, I flew with WestJet from Ottawa to Vancouver, flight 235 to Winnipeg , and then flight 301 to Vancouver via Calgary. My booking code for this flight: BEMLYG.

    My seat on flight 301 was 19D. Next to me was a very overweight passenger (male) who left me with very little room as his “belly” overflowed into the armrest. When he turned to change the TV channels, I asked him “to give me some room” because his body was in my space. He was very rude in his reply.

    The first flight attendant with the refreshments cart asked me what else I wanted from the cart. I told him that I wanted some more room. His answer was: “Good thing you’re petite”! but no action was taken. After 1 hour I went to the front of the plane and asked the attendant there to have a look at my seating arrangement. After she checked my seat in 19D, she quickly removed my luggage and took me to a seat in the 3rd row from the front. She stated: “yes, you were squeezed in there”. I mentioned that I informed the 1st attendant and presumed he would have informed her. I would then not have had to wait an hour before changing seats – but instead his reply had been that I was lucky that I was petite. She also told me that there were a few empty seats on the plane so, I could have moved sooner and then added “you should have let us know earlier” – but I had done so.

    I suggest that in the future when a passenger is not satisfied with their seating that they don’t have to wait an hour after informing the attendant especially if there are other seats available.

    This is just a small complaint but it made the flight unpleasant. I have flown with WestJet many times in the past and do enjoy flying with your airline but I certainly did not enjoy this flight. Please tell your attendants to be mindful of passengers’ concerns and not to belittle passengers with comments like ”you are petite”.

    Thank you for your attention.
