    I think this is a good thing. I will happily pay for the extra room. This is a smart business decision by WestJet that will lead to more business customers.

    You complain when airlines don't fly here, then you complain that they don't operate the way you'd prefer (incredible, given all the immense high-level business success and experience of Newfoundlanders!?). Suck it up, buttercup....the world doesn't owe you anything.

    Why do they call passengers guests when they charge then for flights? If I had guests for supper,I would not charge them for a meal. Westjet is no cheaper than AirCanada,and I'm kinda sick of the fake smiles and attendants trying to put on a CODCO skit when the flight leaves. Wearing thin people!

    Classic, foolish business mistake. Westjet are very successful, so what do they do? they decide to become Air Canada. What I always like about Westjet is there is no priority seating. Now it will be different and that means all the baggage areas will be full by the time the rest of us board. Idiotic......

    One of the reasons I prefer to fligh with Westjet was the leg room. Who in the world is getting shorter? Now I guess it will be comfort or price and more checking out oher airlines.

    WestJet will increase leg room and charge more for the "premium" seats. However, this will result in a loss of leg room for the remaining rows. Does this mean that WestJet will decrease the cost of those seats? I think not. Hellooooo Porter Airlines, nice to see you!

    I fly West Jet at least once a month because of the comfort but now I guess it will be for the price. The service is no better especially after the last flight so I will probably be changing airlines.

    Just another way to increase revenue with no increase in cost and they think they are doing the traveller a favour.

    I have been flying West Jet precisely because they offer more leg room and they are better at service than Air Canada or the American challengers. Now West Jet has leveled the playing field so that I'll have to consider the other airlines as well. Very stupid business move West Jet. It's going to come down to price from now on I guess.

      If you have been actually flying a lot you'd notice the price is only a few dollars different to YHZ and YYZ. I choose Air Canada because they have more options for departing and returning flights.

    can't understand why any airline would want to be more like air Canada.

      Coach seats are like cattle cars, no matter who you fly with. All the accolades come from people who fly upfront.

    Yet another reason to take to the roads and explore our own backyard. Flying is for the birds!
