Re: Status of Westjet Premium-Class Upgrades

I flew Westjet on the MAX YYC-OGG-YYC in late Feb 2019. I found out that MAX tails 301, 310, 311, 312, 313 and 315 have the new premium seats. The new deliveries are coming with these new seats. We were lucky to have the new seats on the way outbound, and they were much better than the original seat...

Re: Screening inconsistency

The Delta is quite a bit underexposed - looking at the levels in PS it seems you may have forgotten to adjust them? The Westjet looks out of focus and oversharpened in an attempt to fix. I have the same question as Kas - were these rejected for different reasons previously? Unclear how this relates ...

Re: PHX terminal 4 spotting

Going through TSA if you have TSA pre-Check takes only minutes. If you don't, at each checkpoint I noticed this December they have a wait time list for each of the 4 checkpoints.

For the amount of time you are there, not going outside security would be a real missed opportunity in my view.

You sent the email requesting priority on April 26. You received a reply April 27 (roughly 4 hours later) that it would not receive priority screening because it was unpainted.

Hopefully that answers the question and clarifies how long you had to wait for a priority screening response.
