1 – only one checked bag. If I wanted to pay $25 to get something where I’m going, I would have FEDEX’d it and saved myself the trouble of carrying it around all day.
2 – crappy entertainment service. No on-demand? Shitty TV? No thanks.
3 – fake, “friendly” service. I don’t want someone to tell me a stupid joke or ask me how my day is going. It’s 5am, how do you think it’s going? I just want you to get me on my way and leave me alone.
4 – no Aeroplan. I want that Super Elite status, dammit!
5 -Limited service. I can only fly to a select number of cities, during a select range of dates, at a select number of times.
6 – it’s not actually cheaper. That’s the beauty of a two party system in the Canadian flight industry, one price-matches the other.
Now, I will begrudgingly board my WestJet flight. Never again.
