Bags Checked Through?

Hello, I've booked a flight this summer from Istanbul to Toronto, with a connection in Munich, through Expedia. The flight from IST to MUC is on Turkish and form MUC to YYZ on Air Canada. I suspect I will need to check-in to my AC flight in Munich but does anyone know if bags go through to final des...

AeroMexico and Checked Baggage

Hello, I've tried to figure this out on the AeroMexico website with no clear answer, and could not get through after a long wait to their call- centre so I thought I would ask here. We had a flight from YYZ-HUX booked on Westjet but that was cancelled and we were re-booked on to AeroMexico. We were ...

The Bangladesh diaspora is approximately 70,000+ in Greater Toronto Area and as ZUHAIR77W mentions if they can establish an interline agreement with Air Canada or maybe Westjet this could work for them.

Re: WestJet acquires Sunwing

Just an opinion, We see the continuation of WestJet vacations as the higher-end product mainly using WestJet metal, and Swoop get rolled into Sunwing (keeping the SunWing brand) which is very good at the value-based travel.

Thank you ACCS300, now I have than damm jingle in my head.

Re: If you fly a certain route more than 5 times a year, would you be more likely to fly a low cost or a legacy airline?

For me is a combination of price, direct flight if possible and a departure/arrival times that make me select one flight over another. The frequency I fly the route would not make me pick one over the other.
