Choice of pancakes or omelette thing after take-off, followed by a snack before landing (which varies -- last time I flew it was a tiny sandwich). Plan on having dinner when you arrive.

They transfer checked bags from pre-cleared flights from Canada all the time and there is no need to reclear security. I don't see why they would treat DUB any differently.

Assuming they can find more planes to wet lease and the Rouge planes aren't committed to operate other flights or scheduled for maintenance. Or maybe they just cut back on flights in the off-season....

I wonder if they are reaching their maximum number of cycles, or whether they just have D-checks coming up. If it's the D-checks, perhaps given the aircraft shortage and the real possibility of...

I was hoping it might just be a schedule change, but it's been this way for several weeks now and there's been no sign of a schedule change on either the UA or LH websites. I still have four weeks...

Messed up departure times on itinerary

I have never seen this happen before. I have a UA ticket that has eight flights on four *A airlines. The first flight, and only the first flight, is operated by AC. When I try to select my seat on...

It depends on the route. If there is a decent number of regular fliers, the seats are gone well in advance.

I won't book the flight if I can't get a guaranteed preferred seat. There are always...

Are you in for a surprise, unless you are planning to fly in J.

I'll take almost anything over Y in a Rouge A319, unless I happen to have one of the 8 preferred seats.

It's not just the pitch. With 10-across seating on the 777s, normal-sized people will spill over into their neighbour's space. Larger people will spend the flight scrunching their shoulders...

I think it's reasonable to expect an airline to provide basic rebooking information at no additional charge.

This has been going on for decades, and happens because AC is not willing to invest in better infrastructure or more staff. They have gotten away with it due to the lack of competition and any decent...

It is actually quite possible to make it from your arrival gate to your boarding gate in ORD in 18 minutes. The gates could be right next to each other, and even if you have to go from B to C gates,...

You may not believe it, but 31A along with 31K are two of the best economy seats on an Air Canada B789 since the pitch in Y is 30". Unfortunately, I've had to fly on that plane many times. It made...

Thousands of people connect at EWR in the winter every day. It's not my preferred connection airport by a long shot, but it's not unreasonable to expect the connection to work. As long as you aren't...

You can track actual aircraft using something like flightradar24. The plane flew back to EWR from DUB on Thursday afternoon. I assume it was a maintenance issue.

OP: Can you tell us which flight you are on inbound to Toronto and the day of the week? I only see a 93-minute connection from AC7609 from DCA with the pdf timetable (which is often wrong). That 23...

The automated rebooking system doesn't work well with more complex itineraries and often creates a mess, so what's happened to you is not that uncommon. When I've been affected by major AC schedule...

This seems to be a lot of noise about very little. The airlines don't have to provide any compensation when delays are caused by safety reasons. How many delays are there that are not caused by...

I'm certainly not going to try to defend AC's on time performance. It is abysmal. But I wouldn't count on it. I fly them maybe 10 times a year and it's been 14 months since I last experienced a...

I hope you make your connection. It's certainly possible, but I wouldn't try it with a wheelchair, and I have a fairly good tolerance for tight connections. Despite what you were told, I'd be...

Turn times seem to be much longer these days. It takes 50-55 minutes to turn an A320, which they used be able to turn in 35-40 minutes 15 years ago if they were in a hurry. I haven't noticed any...

Any last minute upgrades tend to come from E+, so definitely keep checking what's available as you approach boarding time.
