Air Canada Quick Question

Thu Jul 08, 2004 9:32 pm

This is for those of you who have flow Air Canada loads of times, I have 2 questions, specifically about my flight on them today.

1. On my flight, equipment was changed from a 321 to a 320. Is there any way to chage the seat I paid $10 for choosing? (They're making you pay for farting on their planes too I hear)

2. How can I get an exit-row seat on their plane?


Cheers

You can change your seat by calling AC res. No way to change your assigned seat online as of yet - unless you're making a change to your ticket that was booked online.

Only way to get an exit row is to check in early. AC does not assign exit rows to anyone in advance (to my knowledge), so first come, first served.

I didn't know that AC was charging for reserving seats now. Is that a new thing?

Also, you can't get the emergency exit row because you have to be between 16 and 65, among other requirements which you'd pass, but you're not 16 yet, so no emergency exit row for you.

Have a nice flight.

a) They only charge for seat assignments on Tango fares domestic/transborder.

b) Call back and you will be entitled to re-pick your seat on the new aircraft for no additional charge.

c) You need to be of a minimum age and capacity to be in an exit row, so I'm not sure you qualify anyway.

I didn't know you could pay a fee for advanced seat selection with a tango fare. If I would have known I would have coughed up the extra 10, instead of getting stuck with the middle seat.

Things you learn!

It used to be around on Tango flights back when Tango was seperate, but was discontinued for a bit when it folded back into mainline. Its now back since April for Tango fares on all flights.
