"Will not fly again"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Hamilton to Edmonton. First, when I went to check in there were about 6 employees standing talking looking at me yet continuing their personal conversation. I waited for a few minutes before saying “hello?” this prompted the lady to check me in. She made me pay to check my normal size back pack and bring nothing on the plane with me. Upon boarding the plane, obviously many people had backpacks. It is a personal item - every other airline deems a backpack a personal item. The staff on the flight came across rude and the seats were insanely uncomfortable. I paid extra to check a bag when I could have just flown Westjet or Air Canada for the same total as they would have let me keep my backpack - as well as kinder staff and much nicer planes. Will not fly again.

"Overall very bad experience"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Travelled from Vancouver to Calgary. Flight was delayed so cabin crew rushed everyone in the aircraft repeatedly telling us to get out of the way so they could take off quickly. Waited at the baggage carousel for half an hour just to realize our baggage was lost. Flair Airlines representative was impossible to find because they were sitting in a different companies office. When confronted with my situation, the representative claimed that they will only refund our baggage fee when online it says they would refund our losses as well. Very bad customer service and not helpful at all. Did not reply to any emails sent. Went back to the airport the next day to talk to a representative to find my bag was there and that they had purposefully left my bag at Vancouver and had not even informed me. Overall very bad experience and don't recommend flying with this airline.

"going back to Westjet"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Victoria to Edmonton. I've heard some horror stories about this airline and guess what they're true. Our flight was supposed to take off at 12.30pm so we arrived at 11. Only to find out that our flight is delayed until 645pm due to mechanical issues. They said everyone was supposed to have been emailed new boarding time but nobody received one. There planes are old and apparently this is a regular thing with them. I'm going back to Westjet.

"purposely hassle travellers"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Edmonton to Toronto. Personal bag - under seat. Their website shows measurement of 15x33x43cm but their unit at the airport is much smaller in size. Their staff insists that the bag has to fit in the unit placed at the airport to be allowed without charge to be carried on. They purposely hassle travellers to get extra money out of customers between $52.50 to $57.50. When you show them the measurement on their site, they insist that the site measurements are wrong and the unit at airport are the correct size. After too much argument, they allowed us to take it on board without charge. The ironic thing is it happened to us boarding from Toronto airport too to fly to Edmonton and without much hassle they allowed us to carry the same bag on board. Why is this airline troubling passengers when they do allow at the end to carry them on. This airline is like a 3rd world country airline were they try to squeeze as much money from passengers as they can.

"anger and uncertainty"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Terrible Customer Service! 4+ hour flight delay and Flair would not accommodate any of the passengers with vouchers nor updates. They would however consistently deny any inquiries made by the passengers leaving them in a state of anger and uncertainty. Flair’s policy only reimburses value to customers after a delay of 4+ hours which is completely detrimental to federal transportation policy of 2 hours before value reimbursement. Because of this, Flair Airlines is subject to fines and should reevaluate their customer service policies if they intend to remain a company. Discount airfare should not come at the expense of limiting customer service. I will not book with Flair Airlines again.

"really poor customer experience"

(Canada)

Not Verified | We booked our flights online and departed with no problems at all from Winnipeg to Hamilton a week ago. Our return flight was scheduled for 06:35am in Hamilton this morning September 2, 2018. The flight has now been delayed for over 4 hours due to mechanical issues and the airline has done nothing to accommodate travellers to get them to their destinations. They advised the next flight available is tomorrow morning. This absolutely unacceptable and really poor customer experience. I understand things can happen but they should make better effort to get travelers to their destinations! This airline is good to save money that’s for sure if you’re a flexible traveller!

"flight was delayed 2 times"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Avoid Flair at all costs. Flew Edmonton to Abbotsford. The plane was so dated it left you feeling unsafe. Our flight was delayed 2 times without any communication to the passengers via email or other, and when asked why the delay, they said “issues with the Kelowna crew”. Also they knew the flight would not arrive at 7:30, (3.5 hours later) the initial delay but posted it as such to avoid people bailing to other airlines or flights. Not worth any savings.

"bad customer service"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Kelowna to Hamilton via Edmonton. I didn't even take the flight. A month before they sent me an email adding a stop in Winnipeg. I cancelled and filled out refund form on the June 21 2018. Now 2 months later still no refund and can't talk to them only agents who only book flights. And that's after waiting 45 minutes on hold. Finally got email today August 29 it will be sent to accounts department for refund and another 6 to 8 weeks of waiting. This is unbelievable and bad customer service which is none. Do not fly with this airline. Hopefully they don't close their doors before I get my money.

"I would not get a refund"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Hamilton to Winnipeg. My experience purchasing checked baggage was very much like that of another customer. There was no indication of having purchased a checked bag for my return flight so I called to verify. The service representative said I hadn’t and it was advisable to purchase it prior to getting to the airport otherwise the charge would be higher. Turns out I had paid already, but after speaking to another service representative as well as emailing I was told I would not get a refund. Also, expect to be on hold for about an hour when you call. The airline is always experiencing a “higher number of calls” than usual.

"frustrating customer service"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Edmonton to Halifax via Hamilton. Incredibly frustrating customer service experience. Me and 2 of my siblings (with our families) have flown with them this month and all have had a very awful inconvenient experiences- with very unhelpful customer service when calling in to the contact number - and no response to email contact. So disappointing, as I believe Canada is in need of low cost air carrier - unfortunately- sacrificing customer care isn’t the way to go about it.
