    There’s even a section entitled, “Ye ole Westjet Milkrun” where you gain karma points for landing at airports en route (or seemingly not en route) to your final destination. Halifax to Vancouver is a real point winner, with stops in Montreal, Toronto, Saskatoon, back to Winnipeg, onto Calgary, and finally landing in Vancouver. Seems like a nuisance, but “the customer service is fantastic!”
