We are travelling soon on WJ, so I was just browsing through their inflight menu options and was impressed to see the Enjoy Life (contains none of top ten allergens) cereal bars listed.

We'll still bring our own food, but wow, I love WJ!

Wow, that's service. I love Westjet! Too bad Air Canada can't grow up a little...

I just phoned to get the allergies listed on our file and the agent was lovely and so accommodating. I gave her some very positive feedback about their proactive allergen policies, and also sent a feedback email on their site saying the same thing.

Reading about Westjet is exciting. Maybe travel is possible for us!

Pleasantly surprised to see multiple safe foods on the WestJet link!

We just booked flights with WestJet and the agent gladly put the allergy info on my daughter's file. Unless it's a long flight we don't eat onboard since to me that is the easiest way to avoid a reaction but just in case I like the allergy info on file. I realized after I booked that I did not even look at Air Canada's flights...
