WestJet Connect is absolutely useless! Doesn't work with Android 7 or Chromebooks. We had two phones, a tablet, and a laptop, but were unable to watch TV/movies on any of them during our flight. Either plan to bring your own entertainment or book a flight with someone else.
If only I could give zero stars App instantly crashes as soon as you try and play a video. Not good considering that's the main purpose of the app. Then again you can rent a tablet for 10 dollars a pop instead of this so it could just be a nice sales ploy
What happened to it? Doesn't work!!! Tried to get flights. It opens chrome and hangs. Then I can't get details or select a flight. By the way just because I'm in Europe right now doesn't mean that I'm trying to fly from Stockholm to Las Vegas on westjet. The old version seemed to be better.
This app crashes continuosly on Android 7 on both Nexus 9 and 5X. Additionally the related service is not accessible by Chrome, which is the opposite of what appears in the associated documentation. It would be nice if WestJet had tested this system with modern devices before making it the only option on some of their flights.
Is this the best West jet can do?? If this Web site is the best that a good company like West jet can come up with, then they are not nearly as good an airline as I've previously believed. The site is difficult to use and shows no signs of getting better.
Media playback not working Only need / use this app on the flight for the entertainment. I could forgive the less than intuitive and clunky interface but not being able to play back ANY media during flight is absolutely inexcusable. For a company such a WestJet i would expect more. You can hire any off the street coder who will get at least this part working in under an hour. There is no excuse for this function not to work, period!
