    Haven't been to one yet that doesn't have kiosks...

    I only go to priority check in to get my magic bag tags
    I assume it's rare, but Charlottetown doesn't and it's technically even an International Airport.

    What does the security line have to do with their baggage? Bags go down the conveyor and are screened separate from the passengers. Seems strange that the agent (no matter how useless) would try to deny someone from checking in.

    This is why you stick to online check-in, and use a self serve kiosk to print your baggage tags. Avoid the ineptitude of the middleman completely.
    While I generally agree with avoiding interaction with as many air Canada personnel as possible.

    When you fly with an infant unfortunately none of that shit is an option.

    This was in Halifax. So close enough.

    I don’t get it. You hate Air Canada, (who doesn’t?) but you continue to book with them time and time again. Why not just stick to another carrier if they’re so terrible? Unless Air Canada was $12 cheaper on the round trip, in which case the Marth checks out.

    All airlines are garbage. Duh

    If you thought this was some kind of preference game you were clearly not understanding my disdain.

    Plus Westjets business class is laughable unless you are on a 787, which they don’t drag out to Halifax often.

    Charlottetown did at one point, i remember because i went to use it (singular) and it printed me out blank labels and they had no toner left to fill it up...i thought this was in keeping with being transported back to 1986 when i stepped off the plane from Toronto, i had a good laugh

    This was 2015 of course, so maybe the locals removed it and burned it at the stake for performing witchcraft or something

    Didn't see kiosks for Air Canada at Charlottetown airport 2 months ago. To me the bigger check-in pain for these smaller airports is when they don't have a conveyor belt behind the check-in counter to accept your checked luggage - after tagging you have to lug it on your own to a separate screening checkpoint. Had to do the same thing in Saint John in April, though I suppose this is standard everywhere for oversized checked luggage (e.g. YYC).

    As for Air Canada staff - yeah, I've dealt with a few over the years. I've often been questioned if I'm in the correct line for check-in, so I just leave my old tags (with the big orange "PRIORITY") sticker on to try and avoid this problem. One of my favourites was in 2015 when I presented my British passport at the gate in YYZ to board an Air Canada flight to Istanbul (at the time it was 10 GBP for a Turkish visa upon arrival in a British Passport, versus $60 US for a visa in a Canadian passport) and the lady (ground staff, not CBSA) asked me if I was in Canada legally - I pointed out that the passport listed my place of birth as "CALGARY" and that yeah, it's Calgary Alberta, not Calgary Scotland...

    Does this affect any international travel? I have a trip to Maldives in October and will have to go YYC>YYZ>LHR (Heathrow) > Sri Lanka Airport?
    I havent bought airline tickets yet, and was thinking of buying the flight insurance just in case.

    Try to get a direct flight to LHR, YYZ is a shit show and you’ll definitely miss your connection.

    Isnt that the long way out. Why not go yyc-yvr-sin-mle.

    I mean.... Its still shitty, but I figure skipping Sri Lanka is probably a good deal right now?

    I've been watching the flights on google flight and all of them go across Europe somehow, haven't seen one that goes through YVR or SIN.

    We were delayed 2h on departure due to a plane swap leaving YYZ, but otherwise smooth sailing. No ground crew issues with YYC either, got to gate immediately and deplaned.

    Talking to family in the business, guess we’re just lucky. Still a lot of random flight cancellations, which fucks everyone over. That’s the bigger problem.
