  • Sunwing or Air Transat

    We have always flown with Sunwing, and are flying with them once again on the 27th when we go to Cuba. Always wondered what the difference is or is there any, noticed Air Transat doesnít fly out of Saskatchewan at all .

    I've flown on both once. Air Transat was much better, having said that this was over a decade ago.

      We donít fly Sunwing. I find their planes too small (but that was 12yrs ago). We always try to fly Air Transat. We live around Lloydminster so we go to either Edmonton or Calgary. We always book Option Plus with them. I think itís an extra $100 but you get seat selection, luggage, priority check in, priority boarding, priority bags when departing, and a free menu item and alcohol drink. The priority check in is worth it alone. Last time we flew them, there was about 75ppl in front of us but the priority check in was empty.

      Flying with them to Cancun in March. Saved $500/person by flying Air Transat out of Calgary instead of Westjet out of Edmonton.

        We went with Transat a couple of times. Always had a good experience. The upgraded seating is worth every penny.

              Me too and I'm a skinny guy. Last time being a smoker and in the middle of a nicotine fit and being chlaustraphobic I couldn't get out of that thing fast enough, and at the time I flew a lot. Again a decade ago so take it for what it is worth.

                Transat is good but buy the upgrade Option Plus if you can. Definitely worth it. We flew with Sunwing a couple months ago because Transat didn't go to the resort but it was fine though. Smaller planes and more basic but passable.

                    Weíre driving 5hrs to Calgary vs 3hrs to Edmonton and saving $1000 on flights. Couple hours longer in the car is worth $1000 to me.

                        Oh wow, thatís a good savings I donít blame you then. We are going to Cuba on the 27th and when I was researching prices it was actually cheaper to fly with Sunwing then Transat plus we had to drive

                          Just finalizing the booking on a two week excursion to Peebles coinciding with a Sous Vide Convention. Plan on flying Uber Air.

                            We've always really liked lufthansa for European destinations

                            Onward with escaping the hopeless fantasy of an artificial freedom and darkened picket fences the disillusioned front of friendly foes

                              Same here -- though that was many years ago now.
