    Had really great experience flying around Australia in Qantas, everything from check-in, to security to in flight service puts every other airline I have ever been on to shame.

When I got up there she had tears in her eyes and I said never mind me, how are you. I told her to come around the counter and I gave her a big hug and told her that thankfully everyone is not like that boor. Got her back behind the counter and then she upgraded us from a compact car to a Ford Escape.
        Most of my flying has been milk runs, earlier it was NW from Regina to minnie, the later runs was Regina to Calgary. I always thought while talking to the agent that neither one of us wants to be up at this time of the morning so the least I can do is try to be pleasant. At the time there was no upgrades on Westjet but on NW there was.

        Side story the last flight I was on there were a bunch of Chinese kids behind us while deboarding. I know it is a cultural thing but they decided to rush from the back of the plane to get off. I got mad and put my arm on the two rows between us and said "wait!" I'm thinking you are in Canada now might as well learn some respect and order.

          I wonder how all those missionaries from Alberta enjoyed their emergency flight from Haiti today?

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.
                  What all do you get for option plus

                      I've been told Air Lyft is miles above Uber Air and the Sous Vide convention is not so hot, sorta lukewarm.

                        The Sous Vide Convention is just a front for the real highlight of the trip which is "The Changing of the Guard" at Betty's Bordello.

                        Will try Air Lyft while attending the world famous "Running with the Coyotes" event next fall. Thanks for the tips!

                              Not a shot against you personally but this has always fascinated me. Why does everyone rush to get on the same plane they are complaining on being on too long? The only thing I can think of is access to an overhead bin. I pop in line until the last call line is pretty much empty then just stroll on in. What's the panic?

                                The bolded for a lot of people. I have seen people rush on the plane and then fill 3 overhead bins with their stuff. Sometimes they take the space above other peoples' seats. I can't believe the balls on some people for doing this.
