Southwest has dicked my FIL a few times in the past, but next year when I head south I'll pay more for a direct Southwest BUF-LAS flight rather than the ordeal that was United on the way back.

I didn't even mention how we got stuck on the tarmac in Newark for an hour packed into a sardine can Embraer 145 because someone overfilled the plane and it needed to be drained.

I flew the SW BUF-LAS this last summer. Packed flight but no interruptions, I don't expect frills on SW just prompt efficient service.

I hear so many people say that about Transat yet I have flown them
at least 6-8 times and never had a problem.

Twice over the pond,

'99 - First delayed for hours at Gatwick as we were returned to gate for an computer error.

'05 - Delayed, then an incredible hot flight for hours, felt really stuffy, hostess was quite snippy on being asked for water. Effected about 20 rows in the middle of the plane, landed in YYZ finally fully drenched in sweat.

Considering my very low air mile count....I've never had a problem with AC. And consider the price I paid to go to vegas (Return $598 all taxes in...from Sudbury, not Toronto) it was pretty good overall, flight coming back was delayed, but that's because it was delayed in Toronto...weather related I believe that day so out of airlines control.

Got free movies/tv shows on the AC flight too...bought the crummy headphones but hey at $3.25 it wasn't too bad for the flight there and back...and then I forgot them in my hoodie and they got washed...oh well memories...

I guess since its my only viable option out of Sudbury I don't rail against AC like others do? lol...flew on one of their "Express" planes on the way down (not on the way back) and flight wasn't full so they asked 2 people to move to adjust the planes "ballast" I thought that was hilarious....it was a Q400 or Dash8-400 on the way down...A321 to LAS, which was tiny compared to the 747 that left the gate used for a flight to Heathrow about 4 hours before my flight left. Probably that same A321 back...and crammed into a Dash8-100 with a guy who brought along his ipad for a 50 minute flight...oh well some people .

I got two return tickets and a week at a hotel... for $588. Add on the rental car and I was still less than $700.

Flying out of Buffalo makes a gigantic difference.

Well, for me, not so much, consider the potential 6 hour drive ahead of me....I looked at it and on paper I guess it wasn't worth the difference...also would have cut down on my stay there as I needed to be back to work that Monday night...and couldn't have swung it to be back in time then....

But yes for you guys down there, it makes much more sense IMO.

I hate anything Embraer with a passion. When they load me onto a Bombardier jet I feel like I'm in heaven by comparison.

What's wrong with Embraer? It's a respectable company, such that even Air Canada has them as regional airplane commuters.

I suspect that the experience on an Embraer 17x/19x is a *lot* better than on a ERJ.

It's funny you say this though, because I have a friend who feels the complete opposite and hates CRJs with a passion.

I've enjoyed flights on AC's Embraer jets (I think I was on a 175, but I can't be sure), and as for CRJs it depends on who the carrier is. I didn't mind the AC ones I've been on, but the seats on a United-liveried aircraft were just brutal...to the point where I wasn't sure I'd be able to stand after the flight. Fortunately, I had a long walk at O'Hare to catch my connecting flight to work out the backache.

My flight to Indianapolis this May consists of.... CRJ 200 from Ottawa to O'Hare, and then an ERJ 145 from O'Hare to Indy.... Not looking forward to it.

You poor bastard. To say that an ERJ 145 is cramped is an understatement.

so none of the 3 were charged with smoking aboard the aircraft...that was quick....are these charges from bermuda authorities, or otherwise?
will they not have to go to court in canada?

sunwing has them on the no fly list, can other airlines follow suit and put them on the no fly list?

I don't care how uncomfortable a plane is... a 1 hour flight on a CRJ/ERJ is still better than 3 hours in a cramped rental car.

Besides, a flight to ORD would have cost me the same amount.

Considering the price of booze in Iceland, the fact that he chugged back his duty-free booze and that he couldn't handle it doesn't surprise me one bit

"We really needed a smoke" ??

How can anyone have another side of the story.

They'll say they were allowed to smoke & swear under the People's Freedom of Choices and Voices Act.

The family is claiming they didn't smoke on the flight. So was there a statement of a cigarette butt being found from the Airline?

Weren't three family members caught in the same bathroom where the smoke was emanating from?
