Front-end for website Almost all of the app's functions simply redirect you to the WestJet website in your default browser. Very few functions are actually performed in the app, which defeats the purpose of having the app. I can browse the website myself. Additionally, I have persistent issues with trips not refreshing and saying to try again later, through multiple updates.
Ugh Where do I even begin with this app? Worst video player ever. Movies don't play, mutiple touches to progress bar to scroll back in movie dont register. selected a movie, the wrong one played. Oh an a plane flying over a straight line with no time left on flight is of no use to me. When Im flying to and from Mexico from Canada Id like to know what im flying over. Apps should be an advancement in tech not reduction and this feature has been available on flights for as long as I can remember.
Good concept; execution needs work Media player fails to block touch events, and links behind the full screen video are still activated, resulting in interrupted viewing experience while trying to simply dismiss the on-screen playback controls (by tapping the video area, which actually gets registered as a click to navigate to another page in the app). Also, it would be nice to have an option for closed captions, which does not currently exist. Finally, crashes frequently occur at the end of video playback.
Fire the people who coded this... You have to download this before you take off... What????!!?! It's more like ads and garbage made by WestJet with the lure of watching movies. I tried two Android devices (5.0 tablet and 6.0 S7) and the movies would not play on either of them. Guess they only like dumb Apple users. Try flying with Air Transat and you can download the app FROM their wireless server after you take off, and it works flawlessly. Fire the coders that wrote this piece of garbage.
it works, kinda the media player seems like a work in progress. the progress Bar shows intermittently during playback without any user Input, cabin announcements from the pilot or cabin crew cause the player to drop out from full screen or sometimes a screen message pops up and video resumes normally. App really needs work. Nexus 6p phone.
Can't connect. Tried adding an upcoming flight. Keeps telling me it can't connect to Westjet service. Re-installed it another day, same message about can't connect. Absolutely useless.
