Hello everyone I don't want to start a fight but I've been wondering which is the best medium company in Canada Between Skyservice and Air Transat??? I would say Air Transat but people say the opposite!

For me.. They are basically the same. Same seat pitch, same type of services. You will get the usual complaint that TS F/As are all French and that they have thick English accents, you will get the complaint that WS and 5G do not offer good service in French... whatever..
They are both charters. They will squeeze as many PAX possible in their aircrafts with 28-29 inch pitch. So you will get 8 across on B763 (5G) and 9 across on A313 and A332 (TS). They both have no kind of PTV.. I know that TS offers Club Transat.. I do not know if 5G offers premium service on all aircrafts. But of course, you will always have a preference based on personal experience... Never flew 5G, but heard the same type of complaints you hear about TS..
My opinion.. I would fly on both if I was going to a resort in the Caribbean.. but for long hauls, I'd rather fly a scheduled carrier

I totally agree! I have flown Skyservice and Canada 3000 in the past, have not been on Air Transat but see them as all about the same. Super cramped but what do you expect when trying to book a cheap holiday!
