Well I just found a round trip ticket from Portland Oregon to Dublin Ireland for 670 USD using Aerlingus.com

How come what?

I just meant how come you are going to Oktoberfest?

He's talking Plane size I suspect. Have you never flown Air Canada. Westjet...all same. but Air Canada has some quite large and some quite small. The small ones can definitley be crowded and I suspect Thunder Bay sees a lot more of the littluns.

Yes, of course I've flown with both, and I didn't notice a difference in seat size, so I was surprised that plane size mattered. I don't see what the difference is between a small or big plane.

Ashley! We're only talking about Canadian airlines in this thread, but good for you for getting that deal.

I've flown on both and to me, a flight is just a flight. I sleep on the plane or I watch t.v. Usually when I fly domestically via WestJet, I just sleep though because the ride is so short. When I fly overseas, I stick to Air Canada (instead of other airlines like UA or AA). When you fly overseas, the meals and the in flight entertainment system is included in your airfare so you don't have to pay for that (not saying that this makes the flight worth the thousand dollars you have to pay). I don't think I've ever lost my luggage before, maybe I'm just lucky? Recently however, I've been flying domestically via Air Canada Jazz and I actually really like it. The seats are comfortable and the plane feels really new and clean.

I work as a travel agent and fly all the time .. i fly both Air Canada and West jet frequently.. I far preffer AIR Canada over WJ.... I find Air Canada has way better seats ( more comfy) better entertainment options and better food . Airlines are Airlines though. Most things people complain about are generally out of the airlines control... even lost baggage is usually the fault of the baggage handlers and not the airline. I have also flown most of the US big carriers UA and US and AA and CO... Air Canada also beats any of these guys hands down. any time i have the choice i choose Air Canada . Air Canada is our Natinal Airline and gets far too much slack... they are often the only choice if you are leaving the continent. hyper.gif
