| Calgary to Vancouver. I wish I read reviews about this airline prior to booking with them. I originally booked with Flair because they were cheaper. In the end, it would've cost the same amount to fly on a better airline like West Jet. They charge you for every little thing they can. After purchasing a 'cheap ticket' you then have the option to pay for a checked bag, which most airlines do, so no biggy, but they also charge you for a carry on bag which is $35+. Most airlines let you bring a carry on and a personal bag onto the plane for free. Not the case with Flair. So I opted to do neither, I was just going to Vancouver for the weekend, staying with friends so I had no issue fitting everything in a personal bag to put under the seat. After skipping the bagging, they make you choose a seat and charge for every seat! You think buying a plane ticket will include your seat, not the case for Flair. The cheapest seat you can choose is $11. Tickets bought, I was ready for my trip. I got to the airport and they charge $15 to print off your ticket at the airport which is unbelievable. All other airlines have no issues doing this for you. So that's another extra charge. (I was sure to borrow my friends computer on the way back to check in early) Once on the plane, they charge you for drinks and snacks. You know the cups most airlines give you for free during a flight? That will cost you $3.50+. I couldn't believe they charge for that, you don't even get the full can of pop. I was glad I brought my own drink. I will say, the stewardess was really nice and funny and moved people around to make everyone more comfortable (i.e kids) On the way back, the flight was delayed for 45 minutes, which I heard is common for Flair. All in all, I won't be taking Flair again. They make you think you are getting a great deal, but watch out for all the hidden costs!!
