*Pretty good if you ask me. I think a lot of their savings come from only flying one brand of plane, the reliable 737. As mechanics have to be familar with one design and makes managing parts easier too.

I have flown Westjet and I think the service was pretty good plus they have Bell Expressview for people to watch.
