That is why I was asking. I've never flown with Air Canada before and according to my ticket i'm "L" class (whatever that means - something down the back anyway!). I just figure, and this is a general question not necessarily specific to me, if someone is catching a connecting flight is it not in the airline's best interest to get them to the next airport as soon as possible, be it on the ticketed flight or not, in case the ticketed flight runs late, the connection is missed and then the airline has to take care of them. Of course if it was was a simple YQB
one way, I would understand they'd stick to the fare category's rules, but otherwise, what?
