On deciding to go to Canada for a holiday, the next step was to decide on which Airline to go over with.
After much comparing Air Canada was the airline which suited our needs best and seemed to give us the best deals all round, and also had the days and times of flight travel that suited us.
It was very easy to book on line even choosing which seats we wanted to sit in.
When booked, they will email you an e ticket which when you arrive at the Airport you just show at the Air Canada desk.
They will also encourage you to fill in the Advanced Passenger Information. This is a must as if you do not fill in this form then you will not be able to get into Canada.
Air Canada flew us out on a Boing 777.
After hearing all about the shortage of leg room on some planes we found that Air Canada had plenty of leg room.
They are very well organised and call you onto the plane in a good order - people with walking difficulties go first, then people with children then the rest are called by the number of seat rows.
We were on the plane for over 7 hours so in that time we had 2 meals. The first was either chicken or pasta with a drink, bread and c ake. We had the chicken and it was nice. The sec ond meal was "a snack" so no tray only something I can call the Canadian equivelent to Twiglets!
On the return journey flying back on an Airbus A330 the meal was chicken and pasta but by the time they got to the middle with the meals they had ran
out of chicken so there was no choice and if like me you dont like pasta it was hard luck. I thought though never mind I will have a sleep and look forward to the breakfast which was "continental breakfast". When the continental breakfast arrived though I just could not believe it as I was expecting something like toast (which yes I know would have been impossible to do) a crousant or cereal. What arrived? A muffin!
We arrived 15 minutes early though!
All in all it is a very good Airline to travel to Canada on and I will definately go with them next time, it is just a pity about their meals.
Summary: For us this Airline was the best for us to Travel to Canada with time wise and flight wise
