RE: Air Canada Or Westjet?

It's a tough call. Both airlines have their pros and cons. <acronym title="Air Canada">AC</acronym> has a wider selection of aircraft to fly on, more destinations, but on most planes no IFE, and I find the crew not as friendly as <acronym title="WestJet (Canada)">WS</acronym>. <acronym title="WestJe...

RE: WestJet Posts Best Quarterly Profit Ever!

Although I'm more of an <acronym title="Air Canada">AC</acronym> fan as well, it is nice to see other Canadian airlines being successful. I like WestJet's friendly service and have no complaints about the 737-700's <b> Keep Up The Good Work WestJet!</b>  <img src="/discussions/graphics/smilies/...
