Yes, they are a bit southwest in feel to me.

They are okay. Nothing fancy... and you can’t check-in, change flights or do anything on the United app... everything has to be through Westjet’s website

Agree with SC1, nothing fancy and similar to Southwest. Can’t check in with delta if you book as a code share. Nothing about them says stay away like I might suggest if it was Allegiant or Frontier

Similar to old airtran if you remember it. Low cost regional carrier. Delays and cancelations seem very common but onboard its fine.

Okay so just expect delays then. I can deal with that I guess. I just didn’t want it to be like easyjet/spirit/frontier.

Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.
