Reviews / Airline

On my flight back from Kelowna, B.C., Canada, I hopped on my first WestJet flight to my connection in Vancouver. WestJet, a small, low-cost airline operating in Canada, was my fourth flight in a few days, so I had a few options to compare.


The small aircraft was full, but, luckily, I found room for my bag and carry-on. The overhead bins were smaller than I’m used to on U.S. flights, but I packed light so everything fit nicely.


My seat was comfortable and a bit roomier than I’d expected on a low-cost airline. Overall, I sat easy for a few hours to my connecting flight in Vancouver. The flight attendant staff was friendly, but brief, not a lot of chatter and attention, but enough to move in and out of the narrow walkway for service.


The airline came about in 1996 to compete with the larger, more expensive airlines in Canada. Prices range significantly as WestJet flies more than 100 routes across Europe, Asia, Africa, the United States, Oceania, Caribbean, Central America and, of course, Canada.


I’d recommend flying within the massive country of Canada by way of WestJet for economy purposes. Some domestic flights are as low as $60 and the website is easy to navigate. Peruse deals and discounts when connecting to another province in Canada.

Disney Plus

Disney Plus has been highly anticipated by Disney fans for years. The service launched Nov. 12 and had more than 10 million subscribers on day alone. The high demand caused Disney Plus to have some errors, but they have since been worked out.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
