    wow shit show with sunwing currently. My flight was supposed to leave at 620am tomorrow and arrive for 350pm. Turns out theres a system wide issue and tons of people left in Mexico, Cuba etc since they cant get their check in and flight statuses working.

    Now flight is scheduled to leave at 130pm (probably will change again) and somehow arrive at 1103pm? Explain that to me? 9 plus hours of flight for a direct flight? Am I missing something here??? Its 5 hours to Cancun from YYC... And were an hour behind Cancun time.

    Fuck me.

    Both your times are basically the same no? Why didn’t the original time concern you?

    Quick look and that flight goes YYC to Vancouver to Cancun?

    The flight likely has stop to either drop off to pick up. In 2019 our aircraft was coming from Cuba to pick us up in Punta Cana. People in Cuba didnít know they had to fly south first lol.

    Cuba is also 2 hours ahead.
    I had the same question for that one but figured fuck it considering we still have the entire evening.

    At this rate, looking at the nightmare people are going through at airports and trying to get home, Im debating on almost cancelling.

    Fixed my post.

    That flight stops in Vancouver to pick people up. That’s why it’s long.

    THAT flight was specifically booked because it stated YYC to CUN and direct flight.

    If you look at the return flight its 5hrs.

    Unless I'm an idiot and missing something here....

    Your flight there says via: YVR which is Vancouver. It's basically a stopover and not a connecting flight. You land, people get off, people get on, you stay in your seat the whole time, then you fly south. Sucks and scammy of sunwing to show it as direct by claiming it as one flight number.

    You don't pick sunwing for the in-flight experience.

    Picking sunwing is a coin-flip gamble where you win if the experience is only a little worse than AC or WJ.

    We just got back Saturday night with them and had no issues at all. Probably a better overall experience than my last WestJet trip.

    I do realize I got lucky though.
