The Premium rows should be done before the winter weather rolls in across Canada. In addition to a little more wiggle room, premium economy passengers will also get access to stuff like priority boarding as well as “complimentary on-board amenities”—whatever those are. Pricing hasn’t been officially revealed, but we have to assume that much of it will be based on flight distance.
To make room for all the stretch-out seats, space elsewhere will be sacrificed. WestJet will try to standardize the pitch on all other seats, as things should now range between 31 and 32 inches. This will probably allow for a few more passengers on certain planes—like the 737-800s—so that means a little more competition for the in-flight lavatory as well. As a result, let this serve as a friendly reminder to monitor your pre-flight beverage intake.
