Air travel can be a lot like livestock transport: it involves limited personal space, noisy neighbours, and the odd smelly odour coming from the row in front of you. Although farmers handle cattle with great care, livestock transport isn’t what most want out of people transport. In a new commercial WestJet pokes some fun at the comparison:
At WestJet, we treat people like people. That’s why we never overbook flights. As Canada’s most on-time airline, we get you to where you want to go, on time. And that's why TripAdvisor has named us the Best Airline in Canada for three years running. https://t.co/mzYvwmnzLu pic.twitter.com/9gip3VDNi7

The commercial bumper reads, “An airline should treat people like people.”
The cows in the video have definitely been bedded properly showing no tag and looking like well groomed 4-H animals. Watch the behind the scenes video below to see which cows were real and which ones were not.
