In short, WestJet is the big winner.
People booking Jetsgo were only chasing the low prices. I don't think any of the remaining airlines will be offering "Jetsgo" pricing on any route. The consumers you talk about will purchase the cheapest seat they can find , be it AC , WJA , or Bearskin. I think it will help these remaining airlines equally that Jetsgo is gone by firming up the prices to a rational(hopefully profitable) level.
