WestJet adds seats remaining feature to web site

15th December 2008 - 05:05 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


WestJet have added a new feature to the booking portion of its web site to show guests how many seats remain at a certain price or on specific flight.

The seats remaining feature will show guests when there are nine or fewer seats left at a fare level or on the aircraft itself. The online countdown will not be displayed unless there are fewer than 10 seats remaining.

"WestJet is committed to providing guests with new options to enhance their experience and the seats remaining feature is designed to help guests plan their travel," said Hugh Dunleavy, WestJet Executive Vice-President of Commercial Distribution. "This enhancement to will be very popular for guests who don't want to miss a seat sale or worry about a flight selling out. Now they will know exactly what's left, so they can make a decision."

The seats remaining feature is one of several recent enhancements made to Advance seat selection allows guests to choose where they will be seated at the time of booking, or up to 24 hours before their flight departs. Earlier this fall WestJet added a fare finder tool that displays fares two days before and two days after the date selected, as well as the lowest fare within 28 days.
