Don’t ever book vacations with WestJet, they assign seats wherever they like no priorities provided to the couples travelling together on one reservation and spending $1500. The answer was you should have checked 24 hours before the flight. So they expect a customer on vacation to keep checking their reservations even after they booked everything on one transaction months ago. Just trying to make money to sell you “better seats”.
Have travelled with other flights and have never seen this issue before, thought of spending money on a local airline. Very Disappointed!!!!
