WestJet is offering more convenience to its members
that check-in online. On May 1, WestJet Rewards members could draw the
following right from their Rewards profile to expedite upgrade payment,
TSA-pre or international flight passport pre-population. When
checking-in, members will be asked to sign-in if they choose to
automatically add Passport, Known traveler number (NEXUS), Email
address and Credit card information to their check-in details. When a
member uses online check-in and is signed into their profile, self-serve
check-in will pre-populate relevant information for the check-in, making
finding bookings, adding travel documents (when required) and payments
(Plus seats, bags, etc.) much faster.

Just what everyone loves to hear, the head of AIR MILES
made over $3 million last year. Granted he covers more than just AIR
MILES but many collectors aren’t happy about it regardless after what
happened in 2016. (Source CBC)
