In fairness, I do not think TS
are as bad as all that. Some of the things he said certainly made me smile, like the overhead bins, but with the ever increasing size of the carry on rollerbags allowed, this is hardly limited to TS
when a flight is full. The other issue this high density seating creates of course is long lines to go take a leak... I also feel the luggage allowance is more than ample for 2 weeks vacation, we are usually a good 8-10 kgs under. The food isnt great, but not terrible either and no different than many airlines incl AC
in Y. One would not expect complimentary wine with dinner for the price paid, but you get it.
I have also never had a punctuallity issue, though on my last flight they moved it forward 3 hours (making for a much earlier arrival at the airport than desired) and an extra stop in MAN
so arrival in YVR
was the same, which pissed me off as there were two flights that day and I specifically chose the one I did for timing.

It's good to hear that his bags arrived alive and pleasantly surprised.
This bit is rather over dramatic. I have zero safety concerns with TS
and I dont think he would really know if RR
Trent's sound different on a 330 of any other airline, including AC
. He would probaly crap himself to hear and feel the vibration of a GE90 spool up.

The two times I have flown with them were very uncomfortable, and respect of course was missing, but I got what I paid for
The 310 is very uncomfortable. I have been lucky with the 332 in getting the ex MX
and TCX birds on all rotations so could have experienced worse, but the seats are very narrow, particularly for those of us with bigger butts than we should have... but I have no issue with the TS
crews and lack of respect, certainly no worse (if not friendlier) than many AC
staff (though some of the best service I have ever received has been from AC
in fairness). On my last flight, they did seem very tired and occasionally jabbered to each other in French in the aisle while serving (on a YVR
- UK flight) which was a bit rude, but when they spoke in English to me, that sweet accent more than made up for it...
As you say, you get what you pay for and to save $900 vs AC
x2 is money I could spend (drink...) while on vacation and as many dont have money to burn these days, thats why TS
are always full.
