No one knew I was deaf as crew knew on way to NY. Not sure why this happened.

I am deaf. Ticket going to NY stated deaf and this return said nothing on it. Plane had no air, just heat. Steward was excellent during flight and kept offering front of plane water. Very unpleasant. Poor guy was sweating serving drinks/food. He was a gem.

Nothing really.

Boarding process was horribly handled. Food was inadequate. Stewardess was saccharine. Bathroom door didn’t shut completely. I was told this wasn’t an international flight and therefore no free alcohol. Aero Mexico flight to Mexico City had much better food, free alcohol and more attentive service personnel. Also delays because of equipment problems.

Efficient boarding, capable crew, mbetter than standard free snack options. Decent amount of leg room due to it being an older plane.

Could have used another round or two of water/beverage offerings as the cabin air is always so warm & dry. Disappointed in lack of power source for charging devices on such a long flight, but the plane seemed way too old to accommodate that.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in CAD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
