    WestJet probably at one point had the kind of culture or environment that could justify a bit of attitude. I am not surprised to hear that's no longer true.

    No issues at YYC

    Beer in WJ lounge at gate b was cold and the brisket was tasty

    Flight took off about 25 mins late, seemed to take the gate staff forever to check everyones papers

    Took almost 1hr to get my priority oversized baggage at YYZ

    Then another hour to get over to Terminal 1 to collect my rental car...which could have taken a LONG time if i wasn't emerald executive status (and didn't care what vehicle i got) some people there had been waiting for almost 2hrs for a car (I'm assuming they wanted something specific)

    In short, fuck YYZ

    Did they still use QR codes to order from your table at the WestJet Elevation Lounge? They stopped using the QR codes at the Maple Leaf Lounge in July. Westjet Elevation Lounge is easily the best lounge at YYC and dare I say, one of the best in Canada - it's head and shoulders above the Maple Leaf Lounge in concourse C or the Aspire lounges in the new terminal. Disappointed that one of my credit cards dumped LoungeKey for DragonPass earlier this year, meaning that I can't access the Westjet Elevation Lounge for free anymore. The Elevation Lounge had an impressive menu, attentive service, and a bar + bartender with a lot more depth than the Maple Leaf Lounge, while the Aspire Lounges have never had bartenders (always self serve). My only gripe with the Elevation Lounge is their specially brewed "Elevation Lager," which is pretty lousy.

    I don't think baggage handlers at Canadian airports care about checked luggage with a "PRIORITY" tag - it's rare (<10% of the time) that my bags have shown up first in a Canadian airport. Contrast this with US airports, where "PRIORITY" tagged checked luggage (from my experience) shows up first about 40-50% of the time.
