Westjet 3213 is a regularly scheduled early evening Westjet flight from Toronto Pearson to Thunder Bay. I normally travel Porter or Air Canada between these two places but settled on Westjet for a change.
Westjet’s flights leave from Terminal 3 at Pearson. After clearing security, getting to the departure area requires a moderate trek using a series of escalators etc. These gates are for the smaller planes, and require walking out onto the tarmac.
We left a few minutes late, but nothing major.
Westjet’s flights to and from Thunder Bay feature the inevitable Bombardier Q400, which is no doubt more economical for the operator. But it is cramped and noisy for the passengers. Westjet’s versions appear to be newer, with slightly different-looking seats. It also appears that the cabin luggage racks were smaller, as many people were not able to get their carryons to fit, or only with difficulty.
We got there to Thunder Bay without any incident, so that was the end of it. Routine flights are always the best kind, even if the experience otherwise has little to recommend it.
