We travelled with Air Canada on our annual visit to my sister in Toronto. We love this airline because the staff are always so friendly and helpful. Plus the flight times are ideal, the times we prefer to travel as the flight we take to Toronto leaves at 3 which gives us time to get to the airport without fighting rush hour traffic, and also if our wonderful neighbours are not available for a lift to the airport then we can catch the local bus which is free after 9.30pm! The return flight we choose leaves after 11pm which means we still have the day with my sister and again travel to the airport after the rush hour traffic. And the late night flight means that most people settle down for a sleep after the meal has been served. This is particularly helpful if there are young children nearby – not that we mind kiddies, but they are more likely to sleep on a night flight!! And some years we combine our holiday with a visit to friends in Calgary and Air Canada is the only airline on which we can book a round trip, which is by far the cheapest option. If you are partially deaf like me, or have difficulty walking fast like my husband, make yourselves known to the check in desk at the departure lounge and you will usually be boarded first – which also means there is plenty of space in the overhead lockers and you have time to sort out your belongings before the rest of the passengers board. Another tip we would pass on – although it hasn't worked recently – is to book a window and aisle seat on a three bank seat or two aisle seats in the central seats. Sometimes you might be lucky and the seats inbetween are empty so you have a little bit more room.
