"a constant headache"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | I flew from Edmonton to Abbotsford and then back with Flair Air. Utter mistake. I have had nothing but problems since choosing my itinerary. I paid for “flex” at initial booking. They would not answer the phone lines they had provided to me. I spent hours on hold on the 1-800 line and was told I could only do things online. So I did that, still not correct. After 5+ emails, my itinerary was finalized. Checking in at Edmonton, they do not tell you that if you don’t check in online, they charge you. So I was shoved off to the side of the line until I checked in, like many others. It was complete chaos. When we finally boarded, we could not take off because they had screwed up their manifest. Even the pilot was extremely annoyed. Checking in at Abbotsford was better but now I’ve been waiting nearly 2 hours for my flight, as it’s not even here. Every time they make an announcement, they add another hour. Their staff are unorganized, not at all helpful and uncaring. Yes, you save a bit of money but you get a constant headache. Never again will I fly with this airline.

"our luggage never arrived"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Flight was Victoria to Winnipeg, via Edmonton. My seat from Edmonton was so small, my knees jammed into the arm rests of the next row. At 6 foot 1 am I now required handicap seating? On all flights (there and back) attendance was done after we had already boarded. They seemed to lose track of who was on the flight regularly. First bag, and carry-on cost an arm and a leg. No snacks given on the flight, and were outrageously priced. After delays in Victoria, we arrived just in time for our connecting flight in Edmonton. Arriving in Winnipeg, our luggage never arrived. We have now been told we may need to wait up to 5 business days upon them finding our luggage (no time table). A number of important items were in the luggage, not only will we have to purchase them at our cost to replace, it has set us back weeks!

"I missed my flight"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | The girls were on their phones, couldn’t get checked in so I missed my flight, no refund and they were so rude. When I called the number they gave me they said sorry can’t help you but you can re book for 290. Would not fly Flair Airlines again, would rather drive next time. Ended up booking with Westjet much better to deal with and friendly.

"would not accommodate us"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Edmonton to Kelowna. 24hrs before our flight we went to check-in only to find out the flight we had booked, paid for, and received an e-ticket for would not be taking 2 members of our bridal party to our group event. Flair Airlines then told us that they would not be able to get them there until 26 hrs later. They did not have any flights of their own to to put 2 people on to arrive in the same day nor would they get us on another flight through a different airline. As a large party of people we had to book many other accommodations that we’re dependent on our group size which we now do not qualify for and must bare the financial burden of. Flair Airlines would not accommodate us onto another flight subsequently purging us of hundreds of dollars in other planned event expenditures. Spend the extra $50 and get your flights through a different airline if you intend to experience the once in a life time events you had planned with your family and friends.

"No frills = no service"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Hamilton to Winnipeg. I've been trying to reach the baggage department since my flight. They can only be contacted be email. No phone number can be supplied by Flair staff. They don't respond to inquiries. Extremely frustrating. No frills = no service?

"Would 100% recommend"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Flew Vancouver to Calgary with Flair Airlines. Great experience. Would 100% recommend. The more support this airline gets the better for us all as they will get even better which will make travel more affordable in Canada. We have been ripped off by the airline monopoly for way too long. Make sure you read and follow the terms and conditions and you’ll have a great experience with no need to complain about fees that is your own fault for not reading. Flair has full disclosure there are no hidden fees.

"Unacceptable customer service"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Winnipeg to Vancouver. Unacceptable customer service. Trying to rebook for a funeral. On 3 different phone lines over 2.5 hours and still waiting for a customer representative. Had to pay for carry on luggage. When booked online they did not disclose this! Will never fly with this company again!

"delay is over an hour"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Edmonton to Vancouver. I was here an hour before my flight but if I was 1 second late like 59 min before departure they would deny me to fly. But since a YWG flight left late out of YWG 25 min and they have 18 passengers connecting they held our flight to wait for them to land, disembark, board, then we need an updated clearance for take off delay is over an hour. So good to know if you are late for your flight you can still board 20min after the plane was suppose to leave. I also would like to know who to charge my time to because if it was me holding up the plane they would be looking at me to cover extra expenses. Seems a little one sided and it is time for us to stand up and be heard.

"had the best of service"

(Canada)

Trip Verified | Hamilton to Winnipeg. We booked with Flair many month ago, then two weeks prior to flying I decided to read some reviews, not the correct order to do so. I am so happy to write that our flight was completely on time and we had the best of service. Polite kind caring people who seemed to want to make our trip pleasant. It was clearly stated with our great prices for flying, there were no extras included, so we did pay for our checked bag (before arriving at airport as was suggested by flair air) we did pay for coffee or food on board if we wanted it. The boarding was very fast, starting with last rows first, excellent idea. The cabin staff was friendly, offered help even asked us to let them know if they could make our flight more pleasant. If you are thinking of flying with Flair air please don't let the negative comments discourage you. If you are looking for great prices and have realistic expectations you will be pleasantly surprised with flying with Flair air. We will not hesitate to use Flair air on our next trip.

"Very disappointed"

(Canada)

Not Verified | Very disappointed in this airline. We initially chose this airline because of the price but it I feel so ripped off! My husband left the house at 6:30 am to be on time for this 9:00 am flight, no one was at the counter, no one to help him. He was there within the “60 min cut off” time and ended up getting very poor customer service and he was not able to board. No refunds, no other discount or later flight nor any apology was given, will never fly this airline ever again. Save your time and money - fly with the big names!
