    I got 2 packages for roughly the same price for November, but the one with WestJet is at a slightly better hotel and costs about 10% more. Both use Hertz car rental, so I'm going to base my decision on the airline.

    Which airline is better for service? Canjet or Westjet from Toronto to Orlando? I've flown with Westjet once before from Toronto to Vancouver and was impressed, but is Canjet decent?

    I prefer WestJets fleet and staff, but both airlines will get you there. I'd base my decision on the hotel I'd get, you're only in the plane for a few hours and in the hotel much longer.

    Canjet is a wee bit more budget minded than Westjet (plus they don't have the seat back TV's)...but other than that,they both get you from A to B in about 2-1/2 hours.
    So, i agree with roxysmum....the hotel , is the more imporatnt choice (not that the flight is less important....:confused3)

    Something else you might wamt to consider, in the 30 years i have been travelling back and forth to MCO, I have found on every ocasion that packages are not the way to go.
    The flexibility,choices and ability to cancel the hotel and car (without penalty)as well as the price made us choose seperate booking every time.
    This is just my opinion which has worked very well for us over the years.

    I've never booked a package online before, so can't offer an opinion to help you decide overall.

    BUT, I have flown Westjet from TO to other parts of US and Canada on numerous occasions and LOVE THEM. Their service is incredible, the planes are clean and comfy, and their flight attendants are just great people.

    I've never flown Canjet so can't really give you a comparison there, but like the PPs have said, you should make your choice based on hotel. Your satisfaction with where you stay would affect you more than which airline you fly with.
