Smile Hello from a WestJetter

Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. Thanks to SWABrian for letting me know about FT.

My name is Lyndsay and I am the Search Engine Optimization Coordinator on WestJet's Web Business Team. I am responsible for a variety of tasks with regards to all of WestJet's web sites.

I'm also embarking on bringing WestJet into the wonderful world of social media. I run WestJet's Twitter account (@twitter) and am hoping to really get into blogs and forums to help WestJet guests whenever I can.

Great posts in here, I better get back to reading

Awesome. AS usual, great gesture from a great company. May I suggest an automatic signature like the Starwood Lurkers have in the Starwood forum - just to identify yourself.

There's a few errors on the website's route map... Edmonton to LA is now year round, Toronto to LA is no longer served and Toronto to Montego Bay is now year round... I just thought I'd share in case you have contact with anyone who updates the maps.

My slow Telus internet and your website do not get along. I think there are too many flash features and it takes a lot of energy to run these as opposed to running what matters - the guts of the page. I don't need high-speed internet as I don't download so won't be getting speedier internet.

Oh, and yes Welcome

While you are looking into things....when making a booking online,the script on your verification code is sometimes confusing and hard to decipher

Can you elaborate on this?

The route map has been updated We had a code freeze over the holidays, today was our first update since early December.

Sorry I was not clear on my observation.

Under WestJet Guest...and Itinerary booking....When logging with confirmation number and pax first and family name...you also need to enter verification code.....the script used for verifcation code is difficult to read and twice I had to guess what was written.

Smile Welcome

Hi Lyndsay,

I would also like to send my welcome to you for joining this site.

I shall be travelling from Edinburgh, Scotland to Toronto via LHR and opted to travel with WestJet from Toronto to Calgary - such an easy way to book via the website (easy to see the low fares using the 28 days option - British Airways who we're flying international doesn't offer this).

Looking forward to my first WestJet flight in July.
