WestJet launches new Plus product

Enhances its Plus premium economy service by leaving empty two middle seats in the first three rows of its Boeing 737 aircraft.

WestJet has launched its new Plus product on all Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft featuring an empty middle seat, added services and upgraded meal options on longer flights.

Passengers seated in Plus enjoy more legroom and elbow room. On WestJet’s fleet of Boeing 737s the middle seats in Plus will be blocked and will soon be outfitted with a new middle seat console between the aisle and window seat, giving guests more space and privacy.

Think most European business class cabins for the last decade and more.

Seats in WestJet Plus on Boeing 767 aircraft will be wider than the 737 aircraft seats, arranged in a two-two-two configuration with an aisle separating each set of two seats. Premium hot meal selections are also included.

The main features of Plus are:
