Just another reason to love WestJet

Westjet drops Fuel Surcharges

In response to dropping fuel costs, WestJet has done the unthinkable and removed the the recently added fuel surcharges.  Now, that’s refreshing!  While the major US legacy carriers continue to add on fees and remove service while wallowing in self pity, our very own (not so) ‘little Canadian airline that could’ does the right thing and continues to win more fans and stay profitable while doing it.  Nice.

Why else should we love WestJet?

  • Seatback Televisions with live Satellite TV – 24 channels worth!
  • Great customer service, and I am talking everyone you come in contact with.  It’s part of the culture.
  • Speaking of that, they treat their employees really well, and are consistently voted one of the top employers in Canada.  
  • They give you airmiles

Oh, and they value travel agents and actually pay me commission for booking their flights at the same prices as on the consumer site… that’s kind of nice too. 🙂
