WestJet Crewbus

Recommended Posts

#C80005 for West Jet has arrived and is in Airdrie having a few things checked before entering service. They were expecting 3 of them to replace the Thomas / Orion SLF that they plan to sell off. I think they will be getting rid of their Cutaways too!

It's the first for NFI in Canada to have those luggage racks inside?

Probably, but a few places in the States have them already. I guess it also depends on what kind of racks - the standalone ones that take up seating/floor space, or the ones that run overhead...

Does anyone have any pictures of one yet that they didn't put up, that would make a nice livery!

LOL! That will fool some Transit Customers into thinking they are the route 57 bus probably. Often times, the route 57 has the plain white 2007 D40LF's operating on it. And I am sure West Jet has their signs set to "Employee Shuttle" or whatever it usually read on the Thomas/Orion SLF. But you know well people read the signs on the buses. Many see a bus thinking it HAS to be THEIR bus! So many times I pull over for someone running for my bus when I am already running late only to have them get to my door and read the sign and say: "Sorry, Wrong bus!!!"

Ok! Got an update on the D40LFR's. They actually got two of them I was told today. Not 3 which I had been told back in the fall. I was not really sure which section to put my new West Jet "Bus" gallery on my website, so it is in my coach section at this direct link:

Enjoy!

You can put Coaches and Shuttles section.

Exterior is almost exact like Oakville D40LFR. Interior which I can see it has a luggage shelf.

Well, you and I really need to meet up some day! I can show you, I don't know the address or street names in Airdrie very well. But I do know how to get there. But the bus that was in Airdrie the other day was back running in Calgary when I got the photos of it.

I don't think I've even seen a Crew Bus here in Edmonton. WestJet is based in Calgary, so that might have something to do with it.

Yeah I think it was discussed earlier that they are probably only in Calgary due to the fact the head office is here. It is doubtfull that WJ has buses in any other cities.

Recently heard somewhere that the service West Jet is operating with these two D40LFR's may end soon due to the Calgary Airport Expansion construction. So I wonder what may happen to these two buses along with the spare unit, a Thomas SLF-235.

I really wish they would give their D40LFR's a bath! CB0004 is looking rather rough as it seems it has been involved in an incident at some point. Images taken June 6, 2010.

From what a employee of west jet understands, the buses are leased from NFI.

The 2 D40LFR are gone. My guess returned to NFI. They have gone back to there Orion SLF. They have cut back there employee shuttle as they have start giving green passes to there pilots and FA's.

Would there even be the slightest chance that these units could be going to Brandon? A picture in the Brandon Sun showed a D40LFR with Top Open Windows in BT colours, but the buses I saw at New Flyer had sliding windows (Including a D40LFR). So would the be any truth to this, or might it be to far fetched?

Nevermind.
