A few years ago I was flying from Toronto Pearson International (YYZ) to Cozumel International (CZM) on an Air Canada Airbus A320-200. Now, take note that I am an experienced flier, and even as a baby on a plane I barely cried. Now, as an adult, this is the flight that made tears fall, and killed […]

This was my first international flight. I was going from Seattle to Tokyo on Air Canada back in December of 2015. I had heard about Air Canada and how they are typically late all the time and how they lose luggage, but my travel partner and I decided to fly with them anyway.

So I like to think of myself as a relatively easy going person, particularly when it comes to travel, with the general idea that it will all work out eventually and isn’t worth freaking out about. This has made dealing with student-affordable airfare a little easier. Air Canada has broken me of this mindset.

I had an Air Canada ticket for December 29, 2014 from Zürich, Switzerland to Vancouver via London, and a connecting flight the same evening to Prince George. My baggage was checked in to Prince George before departure in Zürich, where I received my boarding pass for London but not for Vancouver – obviously the flight […]

This isn’t really a flight from hell, just an experience that I would love to share with you guys. Okay, so in July I went from SEA (Seattle) to YOW (Ottawa, Canada) with a stopover in EWR (Newark). The returning flight was the same, but with a stopover in YYZ (Toronto, Canada). The outbound flight was […]

My husband and I were flying from Toronto to Las Vegas with Air Canada. As usual we arrived at the airport 2 1/2 hours early, checked in, got through security, and still had 2 hours to wait. We did some duty free shopping, picked up some snacks for the flight, and settled in for a […]

My mom and I were seated at the back of an Air Canada flight from Toronto to Winnipeg to visit a terminally ill relative. We were both settling in for what we knew would be an emotionally difficult trip – we never would have guessed the flight itself would be the start of the emotional […]

Every December my parents take my family down to our annual winter vacation in Aruba (AUA). Living in Ottawa (YOW), there are no direct flights to Aruba and usually have an overnight connection at any of the Eastern Seaboard HUBs or Toronto (YYZ). Much to my dismay, we continually fly US Airways. People usually fly […]

This took place in January of 2011. I was supposed to return to Montreal from Atlanta through Toronto with Air Canada. I get to the airport on time, and am told that I have to take another flight to Toronto, since Air Canada switched the plane to a smaller one and there is no room. I […]

This tiring trip took place at the end of the summer of 2007. We had been at Warsaw Okecie International Airport. Our original trip was to fly with Wizz Air to London Luton airport, then from Gatwick to Toronto Pearson. We started by going to Terminal One in Warsaw looking for our flight. After waiting […]

The August before last I flew Air Canada from Toronto to Tokyo for work. I fly intercontinental quite often so I’m used to delays and minor problems but this trip was something else entirely. Things started out bad from the start. While waiting to board I noticed that my designated boarding time came and went […]
