    Hi Ron,
    Well…. it’s not actually my (LOL I wish I owned an Airline) airline, but it is pretty good. 😉
    Thanks for stopping by.

  9. I like flying with your company, West Jet, and appreciate your special prices, especially as I am a senior and live on a fixed income. I wouldn’t mind another trip to Vancouver or Whistler. I adore travelling. It’s so mind broadening. Thank you Westjet. Betty.

    Hey, guys! I have been flying WestJet for quite a number of years and this year, I have entered their WestJet Caring Comes Home Internet Contest and guess what! I have won one of the Grand Prize Package (Car Package). I have received my Prize (2008 Sebring – Loaded) last May 31, 2008 and I am just curious as to where I should look to see our Pictures which was taken by the WestJet Representative here in Mississauga/Toronto, Ontario. I tried the WestJet Bulletin but I can’t seem to find it.

    Hello Maria,

    Well CONGRATULATIONS…. it is awesome that you won!!

    Have you tried the website http://westjet.com or emailed anyone under the contact menu? I would try the advertising department or the Public Relations department.

    And there is a site about their attendants random acts of kindness, that must have been spawned from the contest. “caring comes home“.
    Strange how it does not show the “winners” of the contest there, but you may be able to leave a comment and inquire about your winnings/pictures.
    Give it a shot….

    Good luck and if you find the link to the winners, I would love to know what it is…. 🙂

    Congrats again!!
