Do all other airlines suck this much? I flew back out to school today. I don't start classes until monday but I wanted to come early to get some skiing in. Firstly my morning flight is delayed an hour and 20 minutes. That makes my connection flight EXTREMELY tight and I just make it. I get to my destination and low and behold my bags don't show up. I guess there not as quick as me. I go to the "baggage claim" section of this TINY airport(like 6 flights a day small) and there is a line-up of literally half the airplane of peoples whose bags didn't show. This is just ridiculous. I am lucky that I live here and have some clothes etc at home. Imagine if I had flown out here to go heli skiing or some other expensive vacation. Do all airlines suck this bad... P.s. I will keep you updated on the status of my bags.
yeah I've had some bad experiences with air canada, but also westjet too. I have had lost baggage in Hawaii, and going to ontario, and was without clothes etc. for about a day and a bit. A good investment is baggage insurance, after I think 24 hours of being without your baggage(other than your city of residence) they give you mad cash to spend on new shit.
Yeah I definetly like west jet better, unfortunately air canada is the only company to fly into this ghettoe little airport. But I think next time I am just going to greyhound it to a bigger airport then fly west jet. and I do have baggage insurnace. Problem is it only covers 1000 bucks. My stuff is easily 4-5 grand.
i like american airlines and united, i flew air canada once to paris and had no problems, it was like a 3 connection flight each way. AA is really nice, and my dad is a platinum member to the star alliance airlines so its nice. in 06 i flew to china and back in a 777, where every seat had its own tv and i watched the prestige and other good stuff and i sat in the first row of economy plus, so i could stretch my legs all the way out and they still wouldnt touch the wall
pm me for an invite to the supersmash brothers cult
my dads a pilot for delta so whenever i fly i get business class, Its so nice you get your own tv, and super sick seats and a stewardess who address you by name and attempts for you to gain as much weight as possible during the flight.
I think your own TV is pretty common now for flights 4+hours. Both westjet and air canada have private TV's in even economy. You can watch TV, movies, etc. Makes stuff go by so much faster. EXCEPT air canada is ghetto and my tv didn't work. well thats misleading. MY tv did work, but some big beefy asshole stole my window seat so I got his shitty aisle seat with the non working tv.
you don't know bad flying until you've flown in the third world. My bags have not come many times, including various times in the US, and there's just not much you can do about it. It's holiday season, your first flight got delayed, and you expected your bags to make it? keep dreaming, that'd be lucky regardless of the airline.
I would understand if they were late, and came on the next plane, but the status of my baggage claim is "were searching" or something like that, as if they lost it, not that it just didn't make it in time, that is what pisses me off
Such a bad airline, I always lose luggage when I fly Air Canada even when it's not the airline's fault it's like a jinx that comes with flying. Westjet and Alaska are great for North America. Lufthansa is the best for Europe.
Update: so they called me and the bags are being delievered to my house today, hopefully they are the right ones. I am pleased that they have corrected this, even though I lost a day of skiing for it. I am a little pissed that there online "tracker" still says searching despite the phone call that they are being delievered, I hate when stuff like that doesn't match up.
