Found out about the WestJet name change and rebranding earlier today on Twitter while listening to the Finance Minister for Saskatchewan speak at breakfast. I thought it was a totally unnecessary name change and that it had to be some sort of joke. Then I learned, ahem, it really was a joke.
Good one. I don’t know if WestJet is Canada’s best airline, but hands down they are the funniest.
(P.S.: it may have been March 31 in Canada but it was April 1 at the same time in some time zones.)
(P.P.S.: Air Canada repainted its planes and brought back its classic maple-leaf-in-a-circle logo on its tail, and claimed they were inspired by Canada’s 150th anniversary. No doubt, WestJet is having fun with that.)
